What's the Best Time to Eat Dessert?
"When is the best time to eat dessert. I've heard that it's better to eat it immediately. Following a meal because the protein and the meal will help stabilize the blood sugar. But i'm often too full after my meal to enjoy desert. I'd prefer to wait a couple of hours. In fact i often crave a sweet bite a couple of hours after eating his that. My blood sugar plummeting well. This is an interesting question. Let's start by taking a look at how eating dessert affects your blood sugar. Our blood sugar does go up after we eat and not just desert but this is not necessarily a problem in fact it's how the system is designed most of the carbohydrates we consume are broken down into glucose which is then absorbed into the bloodstream when blood sugar levels go up. It triggers the release of insulin from the pancreas which ushers the glucose out of the bloodstream and into the cells of the body. They're the glucose used as fuel or if no more fuel is needed it's stored for future use. It's also true that carbohydrates cause a faster rise in blood sugar when they're eaten by themselves but this is also not necessarily a problem if it's not a huge amount of carbohydrate then no matter how fast it's absorbed your blood. Sugar can only get so high and then assuming that your body is capable of producing insulin and your cells are reasonably responsive to its effects. Your blood sugar will gradually returned to normal regardless of how quickly or slowly it's absorbed however eating an excessive amount of sugar or carbohydrate can be a problem for one thing no matter how slowly it's taken up into your bloodstream. It all gets in there eventually. So if you are consuming more calories than you can use. The excess will be stored as fat. But what happens if your body is not able to efficiently. Clear that sugar from your blood into your cells because it's possible for the cells to become resistant to the effects of insulin. And when this happens. The sugar isn't cleared as effectively from the bloodstream. Only is it not available then as an energy source for yourselves but chronically high blood sugar can lead to a number of serious health issues. Insulin resistance is often the first step in developing type two diabetes. A lot of us. Worry that if we eat too much sugar too often it will lead us to develop insulin. Resistance or diabetes. But now we understand. It's more the other way around insulin. Resistance or poorly controlled diabetes results in chronically. High blood sugar. It turns out that eating a lot of sugar or eating foods that are rapidly converted into blood. Sugar are not the primary risk factors in the development of insulin resistance. The primary factors are excess body weight especially around the waist and a sedentary lifestyle. Now that doesn't mean that eating a lot of sugar have consequences if your body weight starts to drift up whether from over eating sweets or any other food that does increase your risk of insulin. Resistance in other words for those who do not have diabetes or insulin. Resistance the short term impact of desert on your blood. Sugar is probably not as big a concern as the long term impact of desert on your body weight. Our podcast received support from aero garden.

If you've always worn a mask thank you if you haven't learn more at h. dot. Virginia dot gov so. Should you wait before eating dessert. Anita wondered for example whether the fact that she starts to crave a sweet treat a couple of hours after eating might be assigned that her blood sugar is plummeting a couple of hours after a full meal. Your blood sugar may be beginning to return back to baseline. But that's not the same as plummeting and it's not a problem. It's fine for your blood to remain at baseline. For a couple of hours. Your cells will still have plenty of energy from your last meal. It's more likely that once we're no longer full our minds simply return to the thought of that appealing desert. There's a really big difference between being not full and being actually hungry and when sweets and snacks sound good but vegetables or another healthy choice doesn't sound that good. That's usually a sign that were not. Actually hungry were responding to other triggers such as boredom habit or simply the presence of attempting food. So how can we responsibly. Enjoy desert in terms of managing your blood. Sugar there's really not a big difference between eating dessert with your meal or a couple of hours later even though you feel less full after a couple of hours there's likely to still be enough food making its way through your digestive system to cushion the blow in fact there's even something called the second meal effect which means that a- protein-rich meal can blunt the effect of carbohydrates. Eaten up to four hours later waiting. A couple of hours might allow you to enjoy your dessert a little bit more than you would immediately after the meal and if we're going to have dessert let's be sure and enjoy it on the other hand waiting until later. Could tempt you to eat more than you would if you were to eat it with your meal so if you prefer to eat your dessert a couple of hours after dinner just be sure. The portion sizes stay reasonable. And if you want to enjoy desert with your meal you could always eat just a bit less of that main meal so that you have room for a bite or two have desert without over filling your stomach and finally whether or not you have diabetes and or not you choose to have dessert or when you choose to enjoy it. There is a simple and pleasant way to lower post meal. Blood sugar levels. Just take a fifteen to thirty minute. Walk around the neighborhood. It will help with digestion. It'll keep those blood sugar levels steadier while you digest your food and may even help you sleep a little bit. Better
Unhook Your Wealth Blockers
"So we haven't been able to do a coffee talk for a while and i have been leading a ton of events in virtual events and And so i haven't been on this page that much and we posted things but it's not the same as being with you live. Can you agree with that. I love seeing you guys live and seeing your comments and seeing what's going on in your life and and what's on my heart. This morning is after speaking at all these events or something. That's become really alive for me in my life. Which is the the act of listening to what people are facing. I mean you know. We just had the elections. And then we've had krahn virus like infiltrating our life and And everybody's afraid to touch each other anymore and live live ca live events in thanksgivings. And you know hopefully not christmases but like all these things that were used to connecting with each other. Just have been just really sucked vacuumed out of our life and so one of the things that i think is really important is to listen to each other instead of fighting each other all the time which were so used to doing what the elections going on right now. We need to actually stop and listen to each other and remember that your business is built on serving people. And when i've been having my ear to the the computer my ear to the surveys. I've surveyed four times last week alone. Four times and what i kept hearing over and over and over again is that people are really fighting with their emotions there. They think they're fighting with people. They think they're fighting with with Belief systems but really at the end the day to fighting with their emotions. And what i mean by this is when we're dealing with frustration and overwhelmed and and you know if we're to be really honest with ourselves we say things like i need more support or i need to sales team or i need more leads. I need to figure out what my offer is. Anita figure out how to. How the better spouse and we actually put all of our power out there on these things that we can't control the truth. Is that what we're really fighting with is our emotions. I have a friend of mine. Who's a couple people that i know clients and friends that are separating themselves pandemic breakup right now and that just hurts my heart. Because i mean. Let's not put an identity on a break-up because it creates a collective herd like mentality. I don't know the stats when you know somebody who's gotten a divorce. There's like the the The statistics go google's but the statistics are extraordinarily high that your relationship is going to be impacted in a way that you actually contemplate divorce or actually move into that direction as well or break up and so it's fascinating to me how the herd like mentality moves around so let me show this thing about emotions as i've been serving the number one thing that i'm hearing is that shannon if i could just get over my emotions like frustration and overwhelmed and anger and the things that really caused me to procrastinate or to get angry at people i love or to basically push my power way and put blame or responsibility on somebody else to make me happy. It really like people actually identified that. It's their emotions. That is the problem more so than anything else. And so listen to that. And when i listened to that what i did was actually launched a whole like seventy challenge on helping people build revenue in their business and overcoming their emotions. And i gave them really hard homework pieces every single day to have to go do so that their emotions would flesh up so that they can see it. And i don't know if i if i changed any lives or not but i definitely tried. I definitely went out therein and did my best to To really show them how to put revenue back in their pocket. And i was just sharing with somebody like this year over here taxed untaxed on my phone just sharing with somebody this morning When i spoke at an event actually live event. Believe it or not that. I spoke out Just a few days ago. And i showed everybody how to create a million dollars fascinating to me. Go back to. The emotion thing fascinates me the only people who really wanted more details for the people who are already wealthy. People who are not wealthy had this conversation. I'm sure now. I'm assuming that it was over their head and i just it brings me back to like just opening up your eyes to know what's really going on in the world and it's like if they knew if they knew that they could actually execute on that on that three step plan to make a million dollars. Why would they not rush to find out more details and the reason why emotions in emotions have us believe that. We still need to get ready to take action. We still are not ready right for that next big thing. I see this semi pro. I have a one percent club with my private clients. And and this may be the last year that i do with our clients and and they literally they literally when people many of them when they come to me they say i said what's the ultimate plan and they tell me what the ultimate plan is and the ultimate plan is someday and that's emotions emotions have us make about some and i always say a. Why don't we just make this now. And then you'll see how committed you are to it and how much you really want it. Because i think we love to live in someday. Someday i'll have the marriage that looks like that. Be careful that someday. I'll have the business someday. I'll have the money someday. I'll be able to get up and workout someday and the truth is that somebody can happen right now but the but the truth is you might not really want that thing. You might not really want that thing. Because i'll take into relationships. If you really wanted your relationship to work what would have to shift in you right now. What would have to shift in you right now. To be able to create peace and harmony. I would have to shift in new okay. So there's there's a those away there's always a way right. There's always a way. I mean i wouldn't recommend staying with somebody who's abusive but like i've met people who used to be abusive and they're no longer
Atlanta Hawks reportedly agree to contract with Danilo Gallinari
"Well when you look at the hawks signing danilo gallinari who at some point people thought was going to be. The biggest name moved as a free agent for three years in sixty one point. Five million dollars twenty million dollars a year for a guy who's thirty plus now. It looks like a lot on paper. I guess because gallinari has been around for a long time. And you know. Technically past his brian. But he's a very very solid guy. And i likened it to paul millsap being signed by the nuggets a few years ago getting a vet while you have lots and lots and lots of capitalism and crippling yourself too long in the future. I think it'll be totally fine on their books trash. Thanks very good at that with the hawks. Oh three years twenty her effort danilo gallinari. Who is a maker and will make shots when trae young gives him the ball. I think it just fits on the court really really well. They needed a guy who he could. Just pass it to now. It's will you talk about. The wolves really really crowded backward. The hawks frontcourt is now crowded. Gone are is afford these days. He's not playing the three. John collins also four Anita they just draft five. They have clean cappella the five. That's a lot of bodies for sure. But i think just like the wolves. Everybody's on the table you know. They have contracts at every range. I think that's sort of why the wolves beasley to that number. They've got contracts that they can throw in as an asset as a dollar value. Whenever and so. The hawks are ready to deal. I don't think gallinari. Like paul millsap in denver is a part of the championship. Ross envisioned years down the road but when you got money and you got a guy who can make shots I think it just it makes sense again. Not crippling your your Your number in the future

I've been wanting to have for a long time particularly as we are now here in england in our next lockdown and many of you are thinking about a new direction in where you go in so who could be better than actually talking about online education than one of the best. I believe in the business. A huge fan of is our love style so delighted to welcome onto the show. The incredible chris. Moody chris welcome to how to cut it down. Thank you so much you such a pleasure to be here. I have to tell you real tingo just as as the show is stocking up there. It's it's such a privileged. This really is the gold standard of podcasting. It really is so excited to be on it. Thank you so inviting the suic- solano just before coming on and you know a saint. I'm i'm i have been a big fan of us for a long time and you know if there's anything we can learn from when it comes to be an educator is you really chris i know you deliver it to so many people i mean. How many people have you do you. Reckon youth now educated in hairdresser to become educated. I dunno most i dunno domino must tens of thousands in the last is really amplified in the last nine months since we went into our original lockdown in march all of our businesses pivoted since march. I think i've done about three hundred and fifty four hundred events. The biggest event is probably had about fifteen hundred people on so And most of the mavericks between fifty and one hundred people on a lot of those event so just in in this year alone in twenty it must be thousands but over the years maybe tens of thousands. I don't know i'm very privileged. I feel really blessed that people come and listen actually so it's really humbling. Think he's become such a big part now. There are so many people the want to become hairdressing educators. I suppose because there are so that you know that a lot of headdresses out there and ha handwriting education has become so accessible but also think you know in the uk all of the uk and island addressing has always been at a very very high standard. And i think people are recognizing in order to compete in to maintain that standard and to keep sort of pushing the barriers education has become more important than ever. It's not enough now to just simply learn your craft over three years or whatever and then you go into your behind the chair unpracticed. Craft things are changing all the time. Fashion technology styles of people are recognizing that they need to keep up with it. So i think as more and more an then it becomes cyclical as more people recognize. How much more there is to learn. The more people feel the need to learn it so it becomes absolutely anita you. You must hear it so often there where people say yet. I want to go into becoming an educator. And that's what. I wanna do ready today. Christie's learned from you the stuff that you take.

As Tanzania Votes, Many See Democracy Itself on the Ballot
"Tons Anita went to the polls yesterday to vote in an election overshadowed by opposition complaints of irregularities such as ballot box, stuffing President John Maga. Fully who is accused of stifling democracy seeks a second term in office alongside fourteen other candidates talk to Dan. Padgett is electoral politics at the university. Of Aberdeen, he specializes in political communication through mass rallies and populist and nationalist ideologies in Tanzania and joins me on the line. Now Don Tanzania's long been thought of in the West is a a haven of stability within east Africa but I mean this isn't necessarily the case and I. I wonder if you could sketch out the political dynamic there, the ruling party's been in power since nineteen sixty one. Yes that's right. It's is the longest ruling party in sub. Saharan Africa. The political dynamic in Tanzania has been one of the ruling Kanzi, CCM's decline over the last fifteen years. Reaching a low point in two thousand fifteen where it where the margin of victory was. The fittest is ever been. Since then President Michel, Foodie, it came to kyle and that's election has led Tanzania. Very shot an increasingly extreme offered Harry. Intern. And we weren't sure how just how? Radical that authoritarian agenda would be and the election this we're just getting results from now suggests that it is as bad as any of us feared as so the opposition allegations of vote rigging, etc do stand up. Well. So. Of course, normally I would turn to international election observers. Attorney to arbitrate these claims to decide which to give credence in which not to give credence. Unfortunately, we can't almost no international election observers. Were invited and those that were invited were. Invited at our so Given that and given the advantage of the opportunity that this creates the ruling party the elections it's hard not to give at least prima facie credence to these opposition claims especially given the the wide range of anecdote to. Video and photographic evidence that I've seen an which which I've been collecting these last twenty four hours, and of course, zipping a social media crackdown various restrictions on the press. Has Been, a crackdown all over and and for the last five years. So in many ways, the the rigging receipt which we've been seeing apparently seeing of the next twenty four hours. Is. Really just the icing on the authoritarian cake. There's extreme. Media Censorship rallies have been banned and consider route the rally. The most important means of communication tends to emotional time about seventy percent of people attend local meetings on a regular basis and attend election campaign rallies they were they were abandoned twenty sixteen and indeed the opposition at large have. Hottest. Struggle underneath. Almost constance. Of States and extra state harassment in includes trumped up court cases but also extrajudicial. So extra state attacks. Unknown assailants that have arrested some abductors killed. And in fact, one of the main challenges has recently returned to the country after recovering from gunshot wounds. That's right. So tenderly series is. Presidential. Candidate is the largest opposition party in Tanzania. and. So that's Experience of being of surviving attempted assassination attempt has has given. US already in very impressive political figure a sort of a sparkle. Some people referred to him as a living miracle. But of course, we don't know the results. Yes. But we all seeing violence particularly in Zanzibar. Zanzibar the autonomous. ARCHEPELAGO's Zanzibar, which is a federally devote area of 'em. Into UK. Has has often seen electoral violence. We saw it in ninety five and two, thousand and thirteen, thousand, five and twenty fifteen and actions by varying degrees. So in in some ways, this is a return to form It's not. The recurrence of violence is is. Seems to be because the opposition has probably one in sensabaugh almost every time. But they've never officially one out one means or another has always been used to not in the that's the that's the the scholarly consensus on. Politics what's different? This time I think is that there's violence on the mainland as well. So this is no longer an issue of contained physical violence in Zanzibar. There have been a series of incidents including. What appears to be an attempt to a to attack the chairman of the leading opposition party on the eve of the elections. So that's one difference the other is considered. No money there is. A. Sporadic protests violence and in return state brutality, police army heavy-handedness in putting down those protests that the protests have often been. Constrained and sporadic because they have not been condoned led. By, by the leaders of the opposition there, there are indications that this could be different this time one of the reasons for that is. The, the rhetoric is different. The leader of the opposition in Zanzibar say amount has been say had has been saying that in the past he's held his supporters back. He's been of restraint, and at this time he he won't urge restraint to newly sue has said that he will. Bring people out onto the streets and consider the state of the opposition behind because it seems like this might be the last stand in a sense that vikings they can make, and so they they don't have that say incentive to hold back this time and say the keep up how to drive the next time. Just finally before we go, do you think that this is part of something that we're seeing across parts of Africa there is a younger demographic. They were all born after independence that not prepared to accept authoritarian rule the just coming to the age where they are protesting we're seeing it in Nigeria within saws and in various other places could this be the the Africans spring. My sense is if there is African spring to come, it will come off and an Wiki will extend. Mexico an authoritarian winter. The trend on that strikes me is that a number of leaders are emerging in an intense Aena in Zambia. In other parts of the consonant, which bear a striking resemblance to this sort of authoritarian. Developmental. Nationalists of is so The there's a young population I are angry. But in fact, I think the trend seems to go the other way. And results. When can we expect those? So the first also are already dripping in and they show. That a series of opposition strongholds, there's places that you would never expect or or at least likely. To expect to go to a to the ruling party are being won by then by margins of three to one, which suggests that the the the rigging. Being worried about maybe taking place typically a Tanzanian election result takes three or four days that was related end and announced especially with the presidential elections but. So far. This is actually has been crisis already.

Is Trump Losing the Midwest?
"Welcome to the be I'm Ari Melber and we are tracking some new sides. Trump campaign is worried about losing the Midwest and thus the entire race to Joe Biden trump spending precious time and resources on defense and state carried by wapping ten points. Last Cycle Iowa Biden is closing that gap and putting the state in a dead heat I was one of the thirty nine states Kobe is surging appointed his greeting donald trump's visit many voters their view this campaign homestretch through the prism of covert. And the criticisms not just coming from Joe Biden or the Resistance Iowa leaders, public health experts, independent writers all noting the trump is coming back now for votes after turning his back on the crisis there take the influential Des Moines Register stating that after jeopardizing our live from far. Trump decides to visit Iowa in person. Or take a look at this. You can't pull up trump's I will rally tonight without seeing this massive billboard pointing the way to yes. A super spreader of. Trump is plowing forward on breaking CDC guidelines lying about the risk of Colbert and the timing of vaccine and repeating two thousand sixteen claims in that state and in other key battleground states that from what we're seeing on the ground and our reporting may not play as well. Right now Democrats, say many measurable signs show that some voters are now onto the con- take a local paper in the state of Pennsylvania noting that trump is just recycling is two thousand, sixteen jobs message, which may work less during the current recession while the president blows up these stimulus talks this week. And his key groups like suburban women turn on Donald Trump that's according to internal polling newly obtained by politico or senior citizen's wavering on trump group that he needs for a winning coalition in several of these states, and since we were last on air just last night, roughly three more million ballots are in leading to nearly fifteen million total ballots cast, which again is vital because it may lock in votes at a time when Donald Trump appears down.

We checked even in some key states that the candidates are visiting even for people who do read the paper. Take Florida which so many politicos obsessed over even when the candidates are on the ground I wanNA show, you hear a fairly typical big city paper, the Orlando Sentinel, the twenty, twenty race it's not the very top story or line. It's not top two on the right. You have to squint there and find it. We put it in red for you below the full in the very lower right hand corner, and that's with the nominee Joe Biden on the ground. Elections are one on preference and turnout. Popularity or preference really helps. But turnout commander more. That's how unpopular person like Donald trump managed to eke out a win in the electoral college in the first place even though remember he never pulled very high. He never pulled past fifty percent and he finished with few voters supporting him in our weird. Constitutional System. By right now, thanks from that evidence. We showed you in what we've been showing you throughout the week that they are up. So they're laser on taking that preference and trying to get the turnout with these growing leads states that trump won in two thousand sixteen big leads in some places above the margin of error and the question is, can the Democrats actually turn all those people out? I want to bring in someone who knows all about this polling Guru Cornell Belcher who worked on both Obama campaigns and wanting to taller the national political director for supermajority, which focuses ongoing political opportunities for women good evening to both of you. Cornell when you see the numbers up. What is the vital part for campaigns in October as voting's begun interning turning preference in turn out into victory? I think are a couple of things are really important. The numbers that are structurally different from twice I wanted to make that plex a lot of people still nervous about twenty sixteen. Structurally this is different than twice a couple of ways. One is different than to sixteen. In that in all these polls are driven showing by actually has a majority. And that is critical I. don't care if you're five, six, seven points. If you're below majority crazy things can happen. But in most of these bound states and certainly the national polling, he's now at a majority in Washington Post polling which I which I pay attention to hear because they they have the third party candidate in there as well. He's still at a majority you remember. Hillary was always ahead in the forced to way choice coastal majority but with the third party candidates who. Turned up the instrumental she was never had a majority of that. She got in nationally law with what what we saw with third-party Cornell just to pause on that point you raise because this matters you're pointing out that sometimes the question the voters get on the phone is different than what they're going to see. If they turn out, they get presented with two and it can change the actual science of what we're getting when they're gonNA go in the ballot box and see three or more explain to us exactly what's different now or what you think that there's more optimism for Biden compared to that. There was a protest right and we understood that that that that the third party candidates were repealing. A inaudible segment of the electorate who who, who was my time voted for for Bronco Rock Obama and nowhere is that more crystal clear than the State Wisconsin, what you saw those young people third party forty we also understand that the Russians have had a big play in and try and direct some of those specials and African American voters toward party candidate candidate candidates here. But even with their and candidates right now structurally, Biden has a majority of which is which is good and it's a stable majority. Are This is unusual in that you can't go back in the last two or three decades seeing where a Democrat has held a double digit lead nationally embattled most these battleground states for not one month that two months, three months. But basically, since June so structurally, this is very different and within the numbers is very different because when you look at right now you know among College White Women, the Horse Races Twenty seven, sixty, nine ad from the Washington. Post poll so know. So, you're talking about structurally this lead in and his support is very different than what we saw. Hillary Clinton Sixteen in two thousand sixteen quite frankly I'm gonna Bama and teen got but this is structurally even different than what we saw for Brock Obama. In Twenty, eight, twenty, twelve in two. Thousand eight I'M GONNA bring. You Anita? But. You're saying it diplomatically are you saying you think the number support a bigger margin for buying than what Obama One? Is Is blasphemed don't Tell Brak. Obama but I. Joe By going to beat it by. Wow don't you know it doesn't work when you say don't tell someone, but you're on live TV. That's really you are I mean again, I just want to underscore this. Again, we're following the the numbers and I've tried to show viewers we're GONNA continue report for you. Particularly, the votes cast the voter registration were at fifteen million votes. The election has begun, which is different than a hypothetical poll six months ago so we have an Obama pollster. Saying tonight, he is seeing the elements of the larger victory for Biden and Obama that you own that. Not Me that's really interesting coming from you cornell. Elliott. said it you're not telling you. There's no things what they're. Not. GonNa, let you forget this. I don't see it. But what I do see is absolutely the margins nationally the margins in these battleground states are undeniable but also an organizer. So first and foremost I'm always going to default to this is a turnout game. It is all about the people get showing up. I am absolutely looking at that almost fifteen million votes cast number and have optimism optimism about what we can expect to see as we get closer to the election cycle and I'm also a woman optimistic about women boating and turning out their friends and their. Families to make sure that binding gets over the finish line because what what is interesting here is Bala failures that you mentioned about trump and your opening are like boater boater spill that and voters are living that every single day. So on top of all them enthusiasm for a Biden Harris, they're taking their lived experience in an ongoing pen to make that didn't have to be this way in an economic recession that again didn't have to be this way but are here but we're all here because of trump and his administration's ineptitude.
Training dogs to sniff out COVID-19
"They can sniff out counselors late blood sugar levels in diabetics, drugs, explosive chemicals used in bombs, and as many dog owners know any food in one hundred meter radius. dokes have notorious powerful noses with hundreds of millions of central sceptres that can pick up traces of substances at just one pop trillion. And so now teams around the world from Lebanon to the UK attesting out dog's olfactory abilities when it comes to sniffing out cubic nineteen. One of those putting hounds on the viral hunt is Dominic Cork a professor at the National Veterinary School of. In front first phase is to train the dog to put his nose in coon and sniff. So we knew that if he story then we put some positive sample in this goal and dogs are going to one whole week but they'll in the cones and everything is made as a game I'm Nichole Davis, and this is science weekly. We Got Dominique on the line to ask him a bit more about how you actually train dogs to sniff out a disease. Unfortunately, the audio isn't great so about that but the first question I wanted to ask Monique was exactly when he first decided to ton his dogs noses towards K. Nineteen well, it's I'm a I'm head of a Canine Sports Medicine unit that the vet, school in our fault. And and we are working a lot on working dog I'm also involved in search and rescue dogs instead thirty five years as firefighters. And I've always been working on Doug affection actually. So we also have a big program in the. Vet. School, which is Naza. He's in the goal of the program is to develop the medical detection dogs in in France and so when when the COVID did show up, we had a meeting It was on the ninth of March I remember and. The. First question was, what are we going to use samples? So we checked everything in the graffiti and we saw that the the the sweat under the armpit that would be very few chance of bessie of contamination and actually has no passive condemnation. The dog is not sensible. So we make so that the dogs do not tach at any moment, the samples than we started with such rescue dog from different fire departments. Minute Ducasse what two weeks to consider that it was working in the. And that's what we've been doing for six months. So, let's get to the nuts and bolts here. What is it that the dogs are sniffing Anita? You say you take samples from People's armpits. Similarly, people use an awful lot of deodorants and other toiletries at does that get in the way of things dogs sniffing the virus sniffing the? Effects of the virus when the virus enters add a sale, the viruses replicating also using the Senate. To produce his own proteins he's on molecules and these chemical molecules they have to go out of the buddy. They can go out food the European through the feces for the tears and through the sweat. So that's what the dogs are looking for, and that's been a quite a few studies in the past showing that insalled cultures different virus were producing different others. Let's go nemo. Valetta. Organic compounds. And that's what we are looking for now to answer questions regarding the utterance in perfumes and so on. The key point for these dogs is to have some top quality and fresh positive samples in all the to make the in printing. So we're GONNA need roughly eighteen positive samples that are fresh. We don't rely only on a on A. Positive results also asked samples to hospitals coming from people who have chemical symptoms. The scan that he's typical etcetera etcetera, and if you do it this way while the dogs reading in memory, the specific other and you can put any type of the. or perfume this is not a problem. It would be a problem if the people who are using only one brand of the audience in the same product. But the Zillions of different types of the in perfume. So the only Common Otter, the dogs are finding in the eighty something samples that they are sniffing at the beginning is the the covid and that's what we want to focus on that. Domini, how do you train the dogs I'm what do they do? Once they find a positive sample today sit down or bark or how do they signal that they found something To train, the dogs are using some what we call a faction guns that. Developed that's a good way to not have the dog in contact with the samples and so the first phases to train the dog to put his nose in the cone in sniff, and so we do that too. If he story then we put some positive sample in this in the dogs are going to for one whole week. Now going to put down those in the cones so that the imprinted with the specific honor of the positives and then with more. With some neutral, which means the swabs without anything, and then we put some negative samples and wing prisoner amount of corns. We increase the amount of negative samples. We put some some lines. We've only negatives on the positives and everything is made as a game. In other words, the dog is getting his story when he finds the positive most of the time, we asked the doctor sit in front of the. That's pretty easy to obtain. But if the dog is marking differently barking or scratching or whatever I don't care because it's the important thing is to have the dog marking correct simple. What is important is to keep the motivation of the dog and the motivation of the dog is coming through the interaction with the duck hander and through the fact that he's rewarded when he works good and plays with his a duck handler. Happiness is to keep going for working dogs. A key issue that some skeptics of this approach have raised is that you might be able to tell someone with covert from somebody who doesn't have cable but can you really tell apart someone who has covered from someone who has another virus like flu? For example what do you say to that? We are starting right now to check if the dogs are mocking? Some people with other types of virus infections or other type chronic disease like lung cancers, auditees, and so on. But there has been some studies a lot of studies trying to identify the volatile organic compounds coming from different types of virus that have been put in south counter and each time it shows that the other print of the virus coming from these vetting are any compounds is specific to a virus. Would we see in terms of practical results is that there's a lot of times where the dog has been more accurate than the PCR. We've got some people with negative that were marked by the dogs. Samples were remarkably the dogs we send back the anonymous number of these samples to the hospitals, the remade the PCR, the our positive. We also have some negative people that were marked by the dogs. We have a refugee at ten cases like this where we told the hospital. Okay. These people are positive for us and they couldn't get in touch with these people but these people went back to the hospital a few days later and they were clinically covid nineteen and most of the time they were with digestive simple. You have to keep in mind also that that when you when you look for virus in the nose. You don't look for the virus at the other end of the buddy. Just. How accurate is this at? What kind of results are you getting with dogs? The accuracy of the dogs is measured for two terms of sensitivity which means that the doug doesn't miss some positives and specificity which means deduct doesn't miss some negatives. Sensitivity is the most important and. The values that we obtained are between ninety up to nine hundred, nine point five percent in Dora sensitivity and the specificity is always close to a hundred percent. So this entity is that say ninety five percent while it means that you might have some false positive, but it's no big dipped. One or two percent of positives. The big deal would be to miss some positives and actually this is not something that happens with the dog. So you can take that in any sense results are good as long as the dogs are well trained.
Interview with Mark Constantine of Lush Cosmetics
"Back. In nineteen ninety-five I was studying in London my sister. Karen. Came to visit me that year. She'd been to London before. So on her visit, she was the guide we traveled through the market stalls Candan lock we picked up some indie records at rough trade and made a special trip to covent garden to visit a newly open shop. Called Lush I hadn't heard of it but my sister had instructions from all friends back in L. A.. Get me stuff from. Lush. Now at the time, it was one of two lush locations in the world, and this is before e commerce. So unless you went to the store, you couldn't get the products. Remember the overpowering smell of roses and lavender and honey and lemon I remember these long loaves of colorful soap laid out on tables where you could slice off a Chonkin pay for it. By weight there were bath bombs and shampoos and lotions. It looked like the produce department at a fancy grocery store. You didn't see a whole lot of plastic packaging and in front of each product, you'd find a bright colorful chalkboard with a description. It was unlike any beauty product store I had ever seen. And it probably explains why then There was a line to get in. Lush was part of a new wave of beauty companies that came onto the scene around that time. Many of them influenced by the body shock and it's iconic founder Anita Roddick who as you will hear features prominently in this story is well. The main founder of Lush Mark Constantine had already seen incredible success and then catastrophic failure by the time he launched his venture. In fact, right before mark. Open Lush. He's lost most of his money on a mail order business that went bust. But. Lush turned his fortunes. And and today it's a brand with more than nine hundred stores around the world. Now, in recent months, the pandemic has hit the company hard. For time all of its stores in the UK, the US and Australia were closed. But. Lush has also seen a massive surge in online orders and later on, we'll get an update on how mark and the company have navigated the pandemic and the global economic fallout. But first a little bit about mark's background. He grew up in weymouth seaside town in the south of England. When he was only two years old his dad's split from the family and went off to Africa and mark never saw him again while he was growing up. And his mother. She took mark and moved in with her mother marks Grandma. It was me my mom, my grandmother who really brought me up a my aunt. So. I was really bored three. Yeah. What did your mom do? She was a journalist in the local newspaper on I knew my mom had to work in order for us to to be okay. It was very, very comfortable life full of love and hugs and security. My mom was always there and I love my nine I looked up to my nine and so it was comfortable. Very nice. Obey. Feminine Life I've felt. Spoilt To be honest, obviously, my nine drilled into me the proper values as well. with proverbs and all sorts of other things you know I I had to rights repeatedly better best never them rest till. My good is better. My better best things like that. But then I guess. Around the time you were twelve. So you like you stopped living with your grandmother like Yulia mom moved out. what happened was they there was larger a my mother married the lawyer we moved to my grandmother died. I didn't realize probably until much later in my life high much that'd affected me I felt responsible. I think from my grandmother's death for most of my life because obviously I was important to her and I wasn't there anymore and I couldn't after her and she died on then my my stepfather was. Very, cold I would say and violent. But that's very typical upbringing fifties because they'd come is war gentlemen. There was a lost friends some of them had seen that friends killed or relatives and So it was you know not surprising that those people were bringing up my generation went all the best balanced people in the world. What kind of I mean what kind of kid were you? What do you remember about how you responded to those circumstances? Did you I don't know retreat into yourself or did you act out? Did you fight with your mom? What do you remember or didn't fire my mom but I force a lot with my Stepdad physical fights and they would argue we would all argue. It was just I want to say unsatisfactory which doesn't side like this is like a strange word to use it but. Certainly when I came to build my own home I, for example, never locked the front door. You know I I make an effort on those smaller things that tell people that they wanted to. Careful. Kid were you at school? Are you could student? School was still difficult for. Really. Was it was just heart for you. I. Mean there were a lot of gangs. Gangs were normal in the fifties for for everyone there were lots of gang. So I went to the grammar school, which was the best school in. The top ten percents shoots went to the grammar school. Everyone's surprise when I got in. And then I wasted it while I. was there except that I did make friends and we were in particular gang where we could make. Bombs and things. Can. Make bombs. What we were the news like. PIPEBOMBS. They were we killing sugar bombs with batons permanganate. Glycerin Fuses also savings on we went making them for the IRA season, the Perron purposes to intimidate other gang.
Solving The Stress Cycle
"Navigating stress can be challenging at the best times and now in the midst of a global pandemic with concerns for our health and finances were all facing a new set of worries stresses ingrained in our world and day to day lives, and while this might sound overwhelming if we learned to understand it, we can then hopefully break the stress cycle. So. This meets food for thought sees Pharmacist Tunnel for Dr David Hamilton and I explore what stress ready is how we can control it and intern combated Hello David Hi there how are you today of? Thank you for asking I am very very well thank you how about yourself a really good. been working on morning on the bookwork in. Mathematics in Part Team University degree in Maths and physics. So I I was working or not this morning as well. So it's been. A multi tasking morning. Feeling that sounds incredibly strenuous. So just destroying your mind further today. I'm talking about strengthened kindness and self esteem missiles, things today, and let's start by a stat that I wanted to bring up. So research has shown that if adults in the UK. That work seems to be riches convenience through what you just said the biggest stress factor. Now, do you think this could be where businesses are perhaps maybe going wrong in terms of health of their employees and how they looking after them Yeah I think different companies have different different ways of looking at us, I think some companies. Don't really either notice or it's not so much of a big deal. The stresses experienced by employees it is other companies the new of a s really much. Something that they really have ongoing programs like stress management, Magma volt in a couple of companies. Where we've actually look to closing the culture of kindness really as an antidote to stress I think, varies from one company to the next and I think it's just the. You. Know. How How. Much I. I guess the the company not really notices a what's happening with employees in Ho what the Anita? Exactly exactly and I know you do a lot of work as well in the area of even being kind to one enough and the fact that. I the way we speak to one another as well as noticing the effects of stress because there's different types of stress isn't that that can affect us and how we talk to each flea could be a factor the definitely I mean but we have you know what you call acute stress the stuff that just happens. Because of something, maybe even something not necessarily this happened but your your perception, your perspective on on something here the way you look at something for example, and then you get a law of was what you might call episode stress. You may get a lot of a stressor, a succession of them and I think if these we hand and then stress becomes almost a hobby is. Something that you've experienced a law. Then we call that chronic stress and so and that's when I think that's when you stop to associate when people talk about the impact of stress on our health. I think in general we we're more more thinking of the impact of chronic stress can along term stuff that that really does occupy much of our psyche, but really has stone physiological effect.
Kentucky AG Seeks To Delay Release Of Breonna Taylor Grand Jury Recording
"Kentucky attorney general's office requested a week long delay to process the court ordered release of the grand jury recordings in the Briana Taylor case. They were supposed to be released today. Those grand jury recordings being made available after a juror filed a motion that was granted by a judge to lift the secrecy of the proceedings as a way to dispute the conclusion. Of Attorney General Daniel Cameron and his prosecution of the officers involved in Briana Taylor's death demonstrators and Taylor's family have been calling for the grand jury transcripts to be released for the recordings are a step further. Taylor family attorney ll Anita Baker praising the judge's decision. I think that in the interest of justice that this deserves to be made public on DH, she did the right thing. Derek Dennis
NPR News Interviews Professor Anita Hill
"Considered from NPR News. I'm Ari Shapiro and Mary Louise Kelly has enough changed in the three years since the Harvey Weinstein story broke and the me to movement took off. A new report finds that for Hollywood and the entertainment business, the answer is no. The Hollywood Commission, a nonprofit that works to eradicate harassment and discrimination in the industry. Surveyed entertainment workers nationwide and found many are staying silent because they fear retaliation. Or they don't believe people in positions of power will be held to account. The chair of the commission is Anita Hill, who, of course, has fought her own battles over getting allegations of sexual harassment taken seriously. She accused now Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of harassment and testified. Under oath back in 1991. Professor Hill joins us now welcome back to all things considered. I'm glad to speak with you again. I'm happy to be here. Tell me what surprised you in the survey results Well, the standout data was the data on accountability. We ask people Do you think that a person of higher rank Who was found to have our asked a person of lower rank would be held accountable and what we found is that 64% of the people we surveyed said that in fact, that person would not be held accountable. I suppose that's the thing that surprised me. I mean, on the one hand, it's not surprising that we're dealing with such deeply entrenched culture and history here. On the other hand, it's been three years of me, too, in the spotlight, and many powerful men have been held to account. You're you're absolutely right. We've seen some very high profile cases. And what we want to make sure is that it doesn't stop with just a few high profile cases. We know that they are problems throughout. Workplaces, and we want to make sure that everybody, whatever their position is Can count on being heard. So that's one piece of this. The other is persuading people who believe they're being harassed, have been harassed that they have a safe path to come forward and report it. I remember interviewing you, Professor Hill. Always. Almost exactly. Two years ago, September 2018 on we were talking because it was in the middle of the confirmation battle over Brett Kavanaugh. And we talked about the the personal cost of choosing to come forward. What do you say to someone who's weighing whether to do so or not? Well, you're absolutely right. There are personal cost. But even when people are willing to take the risk, there are other things that they're considering. People don't come forward because they think they won't be taken seriously. Unfortunately, the Cavanagh hearing really gave the impression that the Senate Judiciary Committee Did not take Christine Bozzi. Ford's claim seriously, and people see that example and becomes, you know what they think will happen to them.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg lies in state at U.S. Capitol
"At the Supreme Court on Friday, late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg became the first woman And first Jewish person ever to lie in state at the U. S. Capitol. Anita, why hasn't a woman ever help this honor before? That's a great question? You know, they've been doing this tradition since 18 52. And it hasn't been as many people as you might think. It's been about 35. So a lot of presidents, you know other other people, but mostly are obviously this is always for someone who serves in the government. Four civilians have also been honored, but it's not called lying in state. So Congress decides who does this, and, you know, obviously many elected officials in this country until more recently were men. Well, Devlin before the capital Justice Ginsburg lay in repose of the Supreme Court. Can you describe this remembrance was like and who came to pay their respects? Well, pretty much the entire city came to respect it. And it was. It was an interesting Mix because it began as sort of a spontaneous, Ah, demonstration of support remembrance that the very night of her death outside the Supreme Court. And then obviously it morphed into the official pageantry of remembrance. And, you know, I think I think the video that is probably going to be most lasting from that is People chanting against the president when he showed up, you know, I think it says something about the state of our politics right now, that even in you know, a memorial setting That the political anger is so great that people are going to essentially boo the president public. On DH That just tells you what the stakes are of that. You know, her death is obviously sad, and obviously a moment in history. But it's also another. You know another front in this political battle that were that were following Fernando what he tells about Justice Ginsburg's funeral plans and and where shall ultimately be laid to rest? Um, she will be laid to rest on Arlington National Cemetery next to her husband, Marty Ginsburg than in section that is reserved for Former members of the Supreme Court. And today, the Friday will be the on Ly Day that she will be lying in state in the U. S Capitol and the need a set of historic moment is the first woman first person was Jewish Delight in state. Let's remember that Rosa Parks laid in honor at the Capitol Rotunda, but that was 2005. And that is the distinction between laying and honor. And Ling and stay on. Only four people have leant in honor of the Capitol Rotunda. That's Reverend Billy Graham. And to our police, Capitol police officers were shot dead in AA. A shooting in the Capitol in 1998 on then Rosa Parks in 2005. But yes, this will be a very ah, you know? Speaker Pelosi has given the honor to Ah birthday there. Ginsberg to be a two capital dalliances state. Apparently there are some interesting absences, Asari. That way. We know maybe Mitch McConnell and and other members of the Republican leadership not showing up to this event. Well, there's a
US Supreme Court: The possible nominees to fill vacancy
"Of you paid attention to who the possible nominees are. People are talking about Amy Kuney Barrett and Barbara Lago do you know but these judges and can you tell us anything about them? Sure I mean there. It's almost certain to be Amy Coney Barrett. Just because trump has generally deferred to actually others throughout his four years especially when it comes to the higher court, the Circuit Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court, and there's really a pretty big consensus around amy. Barrett, there some talk that like trump would be helped in Florida if he went the other way. But I'll be I'll be very shocked if it's not her now she is you know a a more or less. Predictable right wing jurist. I think her her confirmation. We'll have enormous effects just because I think it's clear. She's a reliable vote to overturn Roe v Wade where. Probably, in her absence, they would just continue cutting the meaning of that precedent down. You know because even as of today it's it's been made so hard to get an abortion in the south that weather would wanNA speak of. A meaningful federal right to abortion is already open to question in in many other areas. She'll just confirm that drift to the supreme, court in this liberal direction, which actually some of the Democrats on on the panel have have kind of colluded and in taking it toward in recent decades. So the addition of one person is rarely like catalytic or transformative. Maybe on this one issue of abortion, it would actually lead five of the justices without chief justice, Roberts to overturn Roe v Wade, which might not happen otherwise and I'm not suggesting that's not a big deal. It is, but probably in most other areas of law, it would just be like the same more of the same except more. So so so what are the different ways that you see this playing out Let's say this happened than Biden is elected He then gets to replace I assume the next soon to retire Justice Briar I believe, right? I mean. We. Assume that Clarence Thomas would try to outlast Joe Biden in the same way that Ruth Ginsburg tried to outlast Donald. Anything could happen right and you happen and of course, we should probably talk about interesting relationship between Biden and Clarence Thomas. How much of a? Let's go there. How much did Biden in neighb- ball Clarence Thomas is Supreme Court. Or empower him as a sitting Supreme Court justice while he was instrumental as as the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, I mean you know we can get personal. But in we've all seen, you know whatever the you know the Netflix's reenactment of this level. But you know the truth is that Biden you know maybe like all of us only more so again has been a prisoner of his time all the way along and at that moment The He he responded you know as part of the like con, the comedy of the Senate required. You know he hung out with these other white men and they decided that this wasn't a big enough deal and there was deference even in a democratically controlled Senate to the you know right of the president to nominate a supreme. Court justice when a seat is vacant we've totally given up those those norm sense really as a country, but you know within the Senate to. You know I definitely think he sh- his treatment of Anita Hill is part of the record that we ought to think seriously about it's mainly testament to changing norms in the country about gender and about sexual violence and so I but I. so but I would kind of broaden out to less about his own limitations which may be substantial and more about you know. Where we've come why really starting with Robert bork before through the Clarence Thomas Nomination, and through our time we've we've really converted national politics into like these psycho dramas around filling supreme court seats, and again, the reason is not having to do with any of these individuals Biden Thomas. it's more with what's at stake, which is policy making authority over all Americans and it it is. It's. It's hard to argue that this particular institution auto habit

"Should be saving and investing and putting back into your business. We're always looking for people to volunteer and come out in support and speak to our young people and encourage them as well. This is not only adults, but also other young people because they connect at a different level when you speak to a young person and you're young yourself. I think there's this unspoken conversation that happens. Right. So we want to introduce that. But we also want to get the more seasoned veteran. Wisdom from our adults as well. So please share you know, we're on social media come out to our events and just being impassively for young people. Not for people to get involved say they wanted to know whether or not they qualify for any of your programs. Okay. If you are young person for us are we already talked about the requirements for the scholarship but for two excuse me for position for greatness youth program is literally fifth through ninth grade. Okay. If you feel that your child needs that extra support or you want to get them involved with other young. So there's no grade requirement. There's no income. Limit for presented for greatness you now. Okay. One and all one and all yes. From all of the areas that you mentioned, yes. Wherever we were at and so we're we're strategically hosting our events in those different areas. So that we can serve not everything will be done at one time, and we will also have the virtual sessions so any and everybody can participate in that as well. So once we start launching. Those to be uploaded to our YouTube channel. So you can find us on YouTube. You can find us on our website, which is WWW dot it takes to Inc. That org. Could find us on Facebook? At it takes two you could find us on Instagram at it takes to you can find me personally because I cross promote on all of those social media platforms as well. And just give us a call. Maybe sometimes that's just the best way to reach out to us, and that's four four three three zero two nine seven nine nine, and we're open to providing whatever support is needed if we can't fulfill it we have partners in place that can fill the need. Busy busy and join everyone of the I am I am there are days. Like, I said will you gotta take a step back in replenish, refresh. And do some things that you like to do. So you can keep it going. So what's your vision? Takes the vision to provide a full ride scholarship. Full rides to college all for years. That's a major major goal. Another vision is to have our own space, that's strictly dedicated to it takes too. So that we can have our young people come to us, then we'll still go out in the community and be mobile in that sense as well. But we want to create a home for our young people and parents as well because you can't get to the use without their parent, and we have to all be on the same page. So those are the two top visions for it takes too many children. Would you like to see involved in it takes to exit at any one time? Probably I was any one time. I was between fifty and a hundred and that may seem low, but we've never been about quality. We've been about sees me quantity been about quality. So even in our youth program. We max out at ten students because we need to give that one on one support. And it's kind of hard to do that when you have hundreds of students and not to knock anyone that does because I'm sure they have processes in place. But even when you have emptying in people to help yet. Absolutely. But as I was sitting here thinking fifty to one hundred is a lot. Yeah. Will you thinking about the individual type services that you offer because whether it's even if it the scholarship? Money per person adds up very quickly. It does. That's why donations are needed books for college. Not she. No, ma'am. So as you're going through that I was thinking to one hundred is is is a lot. How many do you have now youth for we have we have six right now. But like I said that maxes out at ten when we're talking on an annual basis, the number of students that we serve we are exceeding one hundred fifty because but we don't service the same child. Right. So they may come to this workshop, or they may come on this college show that we just had or they may come on the tour this coming up of the US naval academy, but we do touch over a hundred fifty lives on an annual basis and one of them some of them, we are helping in some sort of way, and that's our our ally. As a return on investment is knowing that we're making a difference in that, we're creating impact. Making an impact and making a difference. A big one in the community. What are some of the feedback that you get from parents of the kids that go through your your workshop, so your programs? I'll use our college tour we just on Monday. We went to tau sin, and we went to Morgan state. But prior to that we had a college readiness workshop so that we can prepare them for the tour what questions to ask. How do you finance it without being in debt? You know, those types of things in the feedback that we got was I'm so what she said that she's she appreciate the passion that we have at this age level because we start young in having this conversation in middle school because once you get to high school eleventh and twelfth grade sometimes it's a little bit too late, she appreciated the fact that the that we're focused on this age group, and we're not waiting until high school. The college tour is self gave her students her child. Skews me insight on what kind of campus she wants to be on. Whether it's a big one like towel sin or more smaller one like Morgan inches giving them opportunities to make decisions and to make those. Paris's in choices. So even just for that it opened up their mind to all the possibilities and in that college readiness workshop we talked about careers as well. One young man wanted to be a barberie and have business in all of this. And it's okay to have those different desires, you'd think about your millionaires and billionaires they don't have one stream, but being combed homing in there's multiple streams of income. So of you can do what you love doing you wake up every single day doing what you love, and you can get paid for it. That's ultimately what we want. So it is the conversation that our parents are appreciating in opening up their minds to all of the possibilities that there are there's a big old world out there. You gotta get beyond your immediate neighborhood to experience it, and that's what we try to do. So how do you touch upon each one of your six pillars through workshops, whether they're just like the college readiness workshop where we bring them together. Our virtual sessions are tours are. Trip. So a college tour in our chore. The neighbor kademi that's coming up as well. So it's a combination of workshop in house in classroom and getting out in the community. How do they handle the virtual workshops will this'll be I one coming good? I could answer that at a later date. Well, how delivered they haven't come down to your site? And they all watch it at one time or no, they're at home. Okay. This is going to be a zoom session. So we're using technology in order to deliver our services, and that's where they're at. Anyway, they're on their phones. So was nothing for them to loop. Tune into the zoom session. They don't have to be live. They don't have to be on the video their security issues in their little bit younger. But they'll be able to see us. They'll be able to see the presentation it'll be recorded. They can watch it later. They can't make it live, and eventually we can repackage and repurpose that so that we can upload that to YouTube, and I'm talking out loud things that I would like to see half. But that just allows us to open up. Our reach beyond even the DMV. It can be global. You know, once we get you to have access to billions, are you passionate about it takes too. I am asleep. Eat breathe nonprofit. You know, this is you know, when when you found a nonprofit you've birth a baby God has dropped that vision in your spirit. And he's asked you to go out and do it. And like I said once you be obedient and say, yes, that's what passion is. What drives this thing every day?

And we're back with Jamila kept talking about tools for success. The cornerstone program out of her it takes to nonprofit that covers five Onis, which is a large area here in the DMV. So we chose to not focus on one area 'cause they're single parents everywhere. Yes. But you're growing I mean, it's good because taking on one county year one you're not taking on too much that you can handle at one time. But to your growing willing to service the entire DC metro area. Yes in not just one county as opposed to another because they all have issues and problems. They all have people in need. Yes. Now, let's move into some other programs. Sure. Because earlier you mentioned. The program that is based on the six pillars. Yes. Our position for greatness youth program. So that was birth out of the need to be more intentional in strategic about. How we deliver our services prior to forming the program we had workshops here. We had workshops there. We partnered, but it wasn't consistent. And we didn't have our own group of young people. We didn't have our own group. So we say, let's just make it a program, and we focused on all of those workshops that we've been hosting throughout the area, and we just put it under one umbrella. So we focused on anti bullying collagen career, readiness financial literacy community service leadership in youth. Entrepreneurship and this is come over six years of what we've experienced from our young people what they need what we hear our parents talking about. Because at the end of the day, we have to deliver in service our population in this our young people in our parents. So also do. Wanna make a note that this program is not just for single parents. It is strictly our scholarship that focus is geared toward single paneth. Everything else we do is open to everyone every young person who wants the support in that capacity the youth. Entrepreneurship piece came two years ago as far as under our program because the started finding a whole bunch of young people who wanted to get into business for themselves. And we said, okay, let's give him an opportunity to showcase it. So with our annual vet called poetry emotion. And we've been doing that in partnership with vicious performing arts for the past five years. It's a fashion show fuse poetry. It's all youth in in our second year, we introduce vendors with our young entrepreneurs. So they were selling cookies and lemonade. Ing cakes jury that they made in their art work. It has just grown from there. And a lot of our young people got their start in business at that event. And they've just gone onto a mazing. Things fifteen example. So his name is fat. Daddy. We call him fat. Daddy o. Oh, it's all that daddy's country lemonade. His name is Ron Cape June. Ron Brown junior his mom, and I are good friends. We met on social media doing service work. He has some of the best lemonade around. And I'm not just saying that because I'm fan, but it's really good. But he's built his business from I think it was three lemonades at our very first event. He now has seventeen flavors. You can find him all around the DNV. They had an event today imam does 'paparazzi in his sister wanted to do some things. So it really is a family affair and we've watched him grow. He connected with another community organization to actually officially launch it. Meaning he has vowed his articles of formation he's legitimate. And I'm just excited for him. So was that that allows us to do what we do and say, you know, what there's a need. So did you think participating in poetry poetry show? That was his built his self esteem to be able to go forward to continue to develop his business. Yes. According to mom. Yes. Oh, how old is? He he is ten now. Yeah. So we had our so that was our second one. So that would have been he would have been what seven eight when he first launched it. And even mom said that your event was his very first event. So he's gotten he he's very outgoing. And that was never a problem for him. But he does his own sales. He'll charge your car. They'll tell you how much it is. He won't tell you though, or how to make. But he's very good at what he does very good. Yes. So if people are watching this, and they want to know, how do they get involved? What are some of the ways that the community can get involved to help? It takes two. They could volunteer were always looking for workshop facilitator. So if your skill set is career readiness matter of fact, we have someone who's doing the virtual session for career readiness and how to prepare an interview etiquette. If you are financially savvy wanna teach our young people how to manage their money. And when they go to college don't get the credit card, and you know, if you are in business, you should

Welcome Jamila, Kip. Thank you so much needed for having me today. Appreciate it. Thank you for coming out. So tell me what struggles as a single parent led you to take on the even bigger struggle of studying nonprofit, sure. So when it was time to send my son to kindergarten, and he's now fourteen he'll be fifteen in may. I couldn't afford to buy school supplies and food for the week. I was able to do it with some assistance from family in France. Now, you working fulltime job fulltime job. Yes. Day in and day out day in and day out nine five and five. Employed as a at the time, I was doing customer service, and I've been in the customer service industry for over fifteen years now, so you know, in an organization while we're the most important part of an organization, we're also kinda lease pain. Right as well. I'm so it was a struggle in like, I said, I was able to get it done with some assistance from friends and family, but it was at that time that got laid it on my heart that although you're struggling with this one thing you're going to help others who were struggling as well. And you know, your pain becomes your perp. It does it does. But almost talk myself out of it. I actually sat on the vision for two years before I did anything because an addition to working full-time being a mom. I son was in football running track in an started going back to school as well online. I was like, okay. Well, how do I fit now during this time period? How did God continue because a lot of people struggle with what their purpose is what am I supposed to do? What am I put here for? How did it continuously come back to you time after time it kept nagging on me, you know, when you're supposed to do something. And it's like do it. Do it. Do it. Do it just kept coming back in different ways and always had that feeling of wanting to give back in. That's just my servant's spirit that I have innately. So we just kept coming back. And then it finally just fell into place when my son's track coach at the time who's a lawyer. I shared the vision with her, and she helped us to get everything started, you know, at no cost it was pro Bono. And she found our paperwork. She helped to really structure get the business out of my head and put it on paper. So while it was a while it was a little bit. It was difficult getting it done. It was also in a way easy getting it done because you didn't have to find the good lawyer, right? God provide at one four you have -solutely. You didn't have to come up with the money for it. Because she saw the vision and provided the services pro Bono. Yes. So all of that is a part of your purpose unfolding. Yes. In where you know. Is the it's difficult to treasure the road. But at the same time the rule continues on absolutely his so it's the timing. And I'll tell any of my clients, it is a timing thing. God will drop the vision. But I believe in timing as well. So when it happened it was supposed to happen. I just took the leap of faith. And he's like, okay. I've given you this now is your turn is time for you to be obedient. So once I said, yes, that's when things started to fall in place. And we celebrate it seven years as past February seven years seven years. Yes. In service to students in families. And was there ever a time? When you were starting it that you just wanted to give. Yes. But was that land because it was overwhelming at first. And then I didn't quite know what I was doing. Although I'm educated now, I have a masters in nonprofit in association management. But when I started at it was like, okay, here's his vision. What am I supposed to do with it? Now, I have these raise my hand. Call to action now people are depending on me to show up. It was. Gary. And when people always say do it scared. So I started out by doing scared with the education with the experience. But the people that were brought in in our path to get things launched it helped to overcome it and being transparent, which is what I always am couple years ago actually fell into about a depression because I was giving giving giving giving giving we do the work that we do we have to make sure we are fulfilling ourselves in. You can't give from an empty Cup. Right. I was empty. So I got to a point where I was just like I don't know that I want to do this anymore. But I got over myself with there was there one thing within developing the nonprofit that was that biggest brick wall for you. It was the support or the lack there of an out. So anyone that had a list of ten people who are new we're going to support next to their name. I wrote down how they were going to support when we officially launched. No one showed up. But it was at that point that I had to quickly learn that this is not for everybody. This journey is not meant for everyone. So it was getting over that initial shock of not getting that level of support. Macgyver has brought us every single person that we have needed for this vision to grow so step-by-step, the lawyer showed up got all your paperwork done. What was the next up? The next step was actually putting it in motion finding your board. And at that time. I had no idea what that was about. I didn't know who they were supposed to be all I knew that we had a vision, and we need people to help get this vision. Because as a nonprofit, no one owns a nonprofit. So we have a governing body, which is the border directors. So I did go with my trust circle. But I was about my trust circle. They were all church members. But one was in HR the other one don't with young people in counseling in their innocence. And the other was in the school system. So I said perfect this. Who we need to get started. Six pillars that you started. With it started with one started with our twelve later that scholarship is a lot. It is it is it started strictly with our tools for success scholarship, which is a water to students that live in single parent homes in those scholarships pay for school supplies books.

Because what she went through is not a loner story is not a one of a kind story. But we are here today to make sure that as the view is watching as you are here. You learn and we all. Do better is when you learn better, you do better. Now, you mentioned earlier that forgiveness is not a switch that you flip in walkaway from. But it's something that has to be managed on a regular basis. How did you get to a place of forgiveness for everything that you've been through? That place was actually behind bars when I was in a sale looking at the fifteen thirty years that I was supposed to be sent his with. I was upset and I was angry with God. Because I did everything that my grandmother told me to do if I prayed to God, then he would answer me if I got on my knees, if I cried out to him that he will make everything. Alright. And in that moment of being angry with him. There was a quiet voice in my ear because I was upset. I was just screaming like you left me. You left me? And that voice it I didn't leave you you left me. And so you have a lot of reflection time especially in prison where there's nowhere to go. And so I just started the really think about it. Because when I heard you left me, I'm trying to figure out what do you mean that I left you, and I had left from serving the life that he wanted me to serve going and going. Opposite direction. And so it had started to look at everything for an example, being the alternative lifestyle was a choice that I may because I really didn't like men and it was because of my dad not because they weren't interested in me. It was because I didn't have that relationship that I wanted with my father, and then I looked at. Okay. Well, I blamed my father for this. And then I blame my father for that. And I blamed him for all of these other things people have actions. But how we react is. What matters. Yes. And so if I continue to react to his actions, then I'm no better than he is. I'm no better than the next person. And so what I had to do is realize that I had to let that go. So that I could move on. I had to understand that they were not actions because of what he did. Yes. People do things all the time. Somebody might hit your car that doesn't mean you haul off and hit them when they get out the car. No you understand. An accident. And I believe truly in my heart that it was not my father's plan to be distant or separate out of my life. But I've happens, and I had to realize that for every action that he outplayed that I had to make my own reaction, and it could not be want to get back at him. And so from learning that I had to I forgive myself because I was the one who chose to do the things that I know I chose to pick up the drugs, I chose to be particular technique or activity that you did that helped you get to a place of forgiveness. So when I look back at it now, and the tools that I used to help other women and men as I you got to reveal it. And that's what I did. When it when I was in that sale. I was thinking about everything that I had gone through. And then you have to get to a stage where you have to release it in my releasing was okay, God, I'm sorry. I'm sorry for being upset with you. I'm sorry for the decisions that I made. So it's an mittens you have to mid. In order for you to release it. And then I had to regain my confidence. Because how many of us have been in any type of relationship or situation ship? I like to call it sometime that you feel that your lack in that area. And that you can't go on if you've been in a relationship where somebody's broken your heart. Now, you're frayed to actually love again. So you have to regain confidence all over again in that area to know that hey, I am where the being love. And there is that person that's out there for me. So it's revealing releasing every gaining your confidence. How do you help people do that? So we go through a series of steps, and I talked to people, and they want to tell me everything that's happening today. And when I listened to them, I'm like, okay. So we need to go back there. Okay. Because that's typically were everything begins. There was a person that I was talking to dealing with her. She was in a domestic violence relationship. And I'm straight straightforward. I told her, you know, you come to me because you want help and I want to be that person for you. But there are some things that you're going to have to do you're gonna have to make the decision the conscious. And that's what forgiveness is actually making a decision deciding today that you will no longer being that stuck place. And so I told her I said within your relationship there are several things that can happen. You can continue to be in this relationship and be abused. You can either be so upset that something happens. And that you abuse them. Then you can be in a situation where you're going to jail because of it then you can be in a situation where you die. Which person enough forget the other situation. It can be the one that you walk away and you're moving towards new life. What person do you wanna play in this row? She says she wasn't ready. And so this like I said going back to it. It's a decision. So the first thing that we have to do in any place in any measure of this is to decide because I can talk to you all day long about what happened back then was happening right now. But if you have not made the conscious decision say, I'm moving forward. There's no where we can go. So that's the number one thing that told that I give somebody to make that conscious decision to be ready. You have to be ready get yourself, and I go back to looking at everything that happened to me. I was mentally concentrated before. I had even met the bar. Okay. Hold on break that down. Tell us what that means, mentally and concentrate is the place that you put yourself in the mindset that you put yourself in the lack mindset. I'm not worthy. I am. I'm not beautiful. You know, when I look in the mirror. Oh, I don't like the way my body looks. You put yourself in that place. Why not say, oh, I am beautiful. Oh, I'm going to change the way that my body looks. That's changing your mindset, giving you a new spirit a new life. It's like a putting on putting on an anointing on your face. Right. I go back to church because I am faith-based. When you go to church, you don't walk into church sometimes with the anointing on. No. Once you get into it. You start walking in it. Because if we did we wouldn't eat thirty to forty five minutes appraising, worship, we got into guest. You to get into that place. Right. You have to walk into their hair. And then as long as you continue continuously do it, then anointing will come. Okay. So now, let's get into blessed hand. Yes. Your latest book. Yes. This latest. Note that I just came out with one it's a mental health Cohen. It's not that easy. Stop telling me to get over it. That's a book collaboration that launched last month. Okay. A pathway to forgiveness. Yes. Blessed hands tell us what is what does this book about? So that book is merely six situations in my life that I had had to overcome f forgive myself in and one of those stories which stood out which is standing out strong to me today. It's called heaven's angel. And that is a story about an abortion it I hadn't why is standing out to me day. It's because all my travel here. It was literally the same direction. Like when I got to the area the facility of where we are. Now. I'm like, I remember the street. I remember the street, and it was taking me back to that place. You see on television where people, and this is something that I'm still working through you see on the television. Where people have the signs saying, you know, don't kill the baby you're going to hell this third. And so in that story, I share how I made the conscious decision to aboard and child and within that it was not just because I didn't want it. I just gone through a C section didn't wait with me. And my husband, we didn't wait. And you know, then it ended up having to we got pregnant, and so I was faced with challenges of not having a healthy child or me, not you know, being because everything wasn't healed properly yet. And so and I had dealt with postpartum depression. So I was already in this place. And I I really didn't want to be a mother. I love my. Done. But I didn't want to be a mother and to hear that I'm going to have to do this all over again. And the way that the surgery and everything I was just like I can't do this again. And so I made that decision. And when I did I went in I wasn't far loan. So I was able to take a pill, and they said that I would have to come back, and I was really upset about having to come back to deal with this all over again. It's a lot just to get there that point and that point in time, and so I had to come back. And when I came back, they told me that the baby was still there. I could still carry to term, but it will be deformed. Because partial of her brain was gone, and I say her because I know it was a her. I don't care what anybody says, I knew my son was a son, and I know that she was a sheet. So it just brought back memories of that. And I'm still working with forgiving myself in the book is the first time that I've shared it that book came out actually, January two thousand nineteen and so I had I had to release it. I'm continuing to release it. But the biggest part of me is that I bought it. Somebody's destiny. And so I think that's the part that hurts so much. But okay. 'cause that can take me to a whole 'nother place. Okay. What advice would you give somebody that's going through that?

I mean, your videos that you post for motivation on social media go through the roof. Everybody loves them. Thank you. And the comments are furious. People are impacted by what you're sharing. Do you feel that that love coming back to you when you post those videos, and you get thousands of us? It's hard. It's hard to say because I started off in this journey saying that if I can just change one person's life in just the unknown ripples involved with that then I'm satisfied, but also competitive so. All right. So this is supposed to be doing with. This is supposed to be saying. So when you put metrics involves it just gives you this place of like. Competition, and it's not really a competition. So the the places where I get the biggest nuggets or when people leave comments and they're saying how they're personally affected by it. Because while you get thousands of us, there's very few people that actually reach out to you and actually have a personal conversation. And it's those people that I really really cherished. Because like I mean, I appreciate everyone for giving me time because that's my thing time. How do you? Choose your topics. I live life, and it's amazing. How just on a weekly basis things come up and everything is just shown up at the right time in my life. I can't lie. It's just. Okay. Let's go with it. Yeah. Says simple you were talking about like what my last post was. This is the perfect example, my last two posts so a couple of weeks ago is just in this place where I had to do video, and it didn't really want to do one. I'm just like, oh my goodness. Why am I doing this like in the sea of just so many people delivering content? Why am I doing this? 'cause who is actually hearing this who's benefiting from it. And it certainly said I'm busy like there's plenty of things I could be doing with my time. And so I mean video just encourage myself to be truthful, and it said, you know. Who who am I in a sea of many like, I am me? And I I recognize my worth my gifts now. So I have to realize to the extent that I can share that. And encourage people to do the same. Then it's worth it. And when we start talking about, you know, talents and gifts like outside of like. Yeah. It was a neuroscience major. But I was also a student athlete like I played volleyball. Me your jersey. They did you know the year after my husband passed, I'm still in this dark place and trying to figure out who I am. And I'm surrounded by people that are celebrating like the things that led me to those accomplishments, and it was really an awesome thing. And then so like the day I post my video Colgate alum reaches out to me is like did you see this article? And I was just like, oh, no I didn't. And I was just like number one. I'm not really history. Like, I feel a little dated now. But for black history month, you know, there was an article about me, and you know, what I had done athletically at Colgate. So it was just like the timing of it all and it's not something I share a lot. But it's huge in my life. The people that were part of my life at that time, then continue to pour in like my team showed up in a big way. You know, decades later after I lose my husband. They were right there. And I was just like, wow. Wow. So in so being down and feeling like I'm against all odds. Like, those are some of the things that happen on the court. Like you look at the scoreboard. You know, how you're feeling you see the other team like I was at least drawing from a familiar place of feeling down in new that I could still make it. So. Do you have a go back and watch your videos to see whether or not how'd that motivational moment affects you. In real time. I look at it. But I haven't gone back into 'cause I guess this is Ben. Maybe actually a year, videos and. I know I've grown a ton. I I've grown a ton in the past several years. So my writing my speaking, my interactions me being more comfortable in my own skin being able to share without like breaking down knowing that is gonna be okay. Like you start off at a point where you're talking about. It's going to be okay. But it's not really, okay. Right. Right. And then you're just like in a place where you're like. Okay. So yeah, what does this optics that you've talked about and you pass videos? Oh my goodness. I think the biggest thing that I just recently realized was, you know, one of my tagline is, you know, I hope that we all find their urgency to live this life. According to a dream some purpose. And I've realized that that's a whole big mouthful. But like what does it mean? What does it mean? How do you apply the Calcio? And so I've mentioned that I work in medicine. See change happen. All the time when it personally affected me, it came true in a very different way. I'm a different provider because of this like those walls that I had up in caring for those people like I have no choice, but to have more compassionate in those scenarios or have a sense of like. More ability to relate and so. When I say purpose intention like purpose intention in time. You never know when those changes are going to happen. And so if you dig deep down, and you find your purpose 'cause they all believe we all have one we may have several. But like, I believe that our gifts are tied in with those. And Sophie realized that you know, we can define time. You know, sixty seconds in a minute, sixty minutes in an hour. But what's the time of our life? We we don't know like we know the average life expectancy in clearly my husband left before way before his time. So we would define his time. Yeah. That's an excellent point. We would define us his time. And so I believe that got has a plan for me. And I don't know the time I have to complete that. So every day going to be very intentional of my time efforts. And I'm going to. The most I can do each twenty four hours. That's why I do so much. Like, let's go are you following?

The median income in this area is somewhere between eighty and ninety K. Yes. Six months of living. This business is a lot of money. It's a lot of money. Yeah. But what I what I generally say, you know, that's kind of the target goal. You're not you have to start someplace I was hoping to start small, you know, even if you have maybe one two, and then really as you start progressing in your in your employment. Sometimes you get raises and sometimes people increase their lifestyle when hit that raise something up hit and do all of that. Maybe you can capture some of that raise and directed towards your cash. Reserve not all of it. But let go at this grocery shopping and get a personal chef. Yeah. All of that. Exactly. Yeah.

Now, let's say people who are like we call brianna and TI call them paper chasers. Yes. And they are all about trying to achieve that higher standard of living. So they're constantly earning money, but the also constantly spending. What they earn correctness ni- mostly they're attached to that higher. Life living that they've envisioned for themselves. What do you? What are the reasons that we how do you break? What are the reasons I say so emotionally attached to what they're trying to achieve versus planning where they are whether they are. Yeah. Exactly. And it goes back to that conversation that we had at the beginning is how did you grow up with money because if you saw your parents doing the same thing really trying to keep up with the Joneses? So to speak. Then more than likely, that's what you were going to do when you get your own money and your own house on your own family. So how you do with that when you were growing up or so it that that's that emotional attachment or if you saw your parents arguing all the time about money or lack of money then in your household. You're going to let that occur and you're going to be really frugal. I mean, but in a time period where we have tala payers Steve Harvey's. Oprah's that say, you know, you have to keep trying. Yes, don't ever give up and you had to take risk, correct? But however, you on that side of the coin take risk, but then on this side of the coin plan for a rainy day because you wanna you wanna threw everything at that, which you're trying to achieve. Yes. All right. Exactly. In your financial plan is really looking at what you what lifestyle you want to lead. And then, you know, really be realistic on can I cheat that but also realistic. About exactly what that is to you. And if that's where you want to throw caution to the wind say, okay, this is what I'm planning, but I'm going to take risk and upgrading my lifestyle or taking a particular position. Then you'll have a little bit of that cushion that we talked about. So you can go ahead and take some risk a little bit of risk as well. But you also want to have kind of a game plan that will keep down of that slow and steady, and then you can also kind of take your risk on this. I always tell it's kind of when you're investing always call it the racehorse workhorse, okay scenario, so you'll have a workhorse, which you know, out in the field ploughed consistent movements of what they need to do. And then you're racehorse would be more of your speckled who've investing or that taking that risk. And then that's that's a small portion. But you're kinda bit Neil yourself there. But it's more of a race type thing. But if you can if it goes fast, and it goes. Fast. Then you have that opportunity, but you don't wanna use their racehorse in the workhorse racehorse for the workhorse situation now. So you always wanna make sure you have both running at the same time. What emotions a what reasons do we continue to make bad decisions without money. Well, a lot of it is really how you're affected by how you grew up. That's one some of it is really about lifestyle choices. So we get a motion about and we get attached to things and accumulating things, and we get really attached in motion Lee to it. And so we throw caution to the wind and way, we're spending a lot of money. Sometimes you're so fearful because you did lack of money the to grow up with that. You don't want to spend a dime, and you really emotional about that. So I see that a lot is that people are scared to even spend money on there. Theirselves. I said you have plenty of money, you know, to us. But because of that emotion that they grew up with that hurt that still there. They don't wanna spend anything because all of my friends that are married the spenders of merit to savers. Yes. And it is funny to watch. It is. It is. No, we're at chick. Fillet? You Anita aware.

She schooling us on the best ways to handle toxic nece in new work environment. Yes. Both from the employee perspective and manager because we're all responsible, absolutely culture. Absolutely. So what are some of the top three ways that everybody from any perspective manager or employees? Kin. Make the work environment pleasurable, so number one. And again, just from what I've seen over my career NS the easiest said than done, but I'm going to say it. Try to avoi- engaging in the office politics. Oh my goodness. It's. Just try. It was something the best the only way they're going to get ahead, but non times out of ten is disruptive. And is so easy to get sucked. In even if you try to stay out of a so easy to get sucked in. But once the politics star happening as an employee. Sometimes you're not even you want to set a boundary and try not to go there. But usually a lot of the conflict that I see in the workplace. Unfortunately, there's a lot of he says she said there's a lot of oh, I don't like her don't like him, or we all we're we're Facebook friends. Now, I'm made because you know, something has happened. And so you had a party and you invited everybody else from office. But me, yes. Yes. And then there's the the drama. So and then sometimes you have a manager. That's like watching the whole thing is like I don't wanna get involved as drama, you know, and and so and then escalates. Yes to the point that it becomes very disruptive. And then it is sometimes it gets to the point point where performance is then lacking. And so, and then we are addressing a whole nother issue. Right. Instead of you know, we could've nipped in the bud early on. So if you feel you know, that you are in a situation where that is happening to you try to engage early with your manager or or HR and try to get some advice on how to navigate the land. Mine. Land-mine later because you step you're too. Sometimes it's just the whole thing. Yeah. So so that's one thing. I lot of that a lot of issues come around that office politics. Yes. It does. It's a, you know, I tell people, you know, can we just come to work do our job and go home. Sometimes that is just not the case. So so that's the first thing if you can out of office politics, if you can try not to get sucked it, and if you feel yourself like important, try to go to someone that's trusted where you can get some advice on how to stay. I don't want to be involved in that, you know, I wanna stay over here. You know? And if that's not your manager that you can go to see if you can find someone within HR could even be a mentor that you can run a situation by to get some advice on how to handle. So that's number one number two. If you're a manager you have to address issues early and not wait. Well, okay. 'cause if you don't address them early it just adds to the toxic workplace because non times ten the issues not gonna go away. Just because we look the other way. Right. So address the issue early. And if you're not comfortable address. In issue early. This is one big thing. I like to say a lot of managers don't come to HR because they're like, oh, I don't want HR involve, and what that means is you can just come to us for advice. We don't have to come sit in a meeting with you with your employees. We're there to even advise you on how to handle it. And it may not even be tough for HR to come in feeling as well. If I go to HR, I got the document everything that's the one thing. Well, come to us early before we even get to that point. Right. It may be just even for you to have a conversation with someone and you're not documenting it. Whatever asked me for my paper. The stigma. We have right now, we do documentation come to us early. You know before it gets out of hand because you come to late, then we are asking you. Okay. How long it's been going on six months. What have we done? Oh, not you haven't had any compass. Then we're like, okay. Well, where are we? We're trying to assess the situation at that point. So if you can't if you see things going into a direction, you know, trying to engage early before. So don't play office politics as a manager address. Stay on the pulse. Yes. Your culture in your environment. Absolutely. And then the third thing because we are human beings. We can't expect people to set it off. Okay. When they come into the workplace, right stuff. Life happens stuff is going on in people's personal lives. So and they and yes, they bring it to work sometimes. So if you see someone that is struggling, yes, right? Oh, you see a difference or change in behavior have some compassion and reach out to the person manager, or at least let notify us so HR we can reach out and to see if we can be supportive to the individual to the employees because sometimes that's all it takes is making us aware if we're not aware, and if you're not comfortable in doing then let us reach out and just say, hey, how can we support you? And like I said earlier, you know, there's so many different resources that we can connect an individual with to try to get some. Assistance because we don't want our employees struggling, right? Yeah. So it does negatively affect if you have one employee that's top in even if you have some medium wins and some low ones once you don't address what's going on the negativity. That's going on in the office it brings everything else down. Yes. Absolutely. So again, just being aware, you know, and if you especially someone that's on your team if your manager, but even a worker, right? We talked about the cues we work side by side. Right. And so we we sometimes we're talking we're sharing and sometimes we notice our co worker soccer's different win the school called the upset because then shall. Yeah. And yeah, here you when you're at home. Well, your in the office which husband calls because he can't find his black Penn little shoot. I can hear you in office. When you sit Nova there in you're you're talking to your co-worker, not realizing that you're in an open work environment. And you're having this conversation about whether you and your husband arguing because you and your wife arguing right because your five year old wants a cellphone everybody in school has a cell phone, and I have a cell phone. Yes. So for you to then think that there's any level of privacy. Right. When you discuss it in an open environment. Yes. That it's that's unrealistic to think that you're going to have that privacy. Absolutely. I mean, and so again relationships happen, right? Co workers, and you colleagues, and you know, you built in relationships this drama in HR because it is it is why start your own. Leadership in career coaching company. Yes. Because I'm in HR, and I've seen so many things and I see split particularly women leaders struggling oh. And of course, there's a little bit of of me too in this because as I've moved up the corporate ladder, you know, I know what things that I wish I had you know, when I was coming up the corporate ladder. So I just have a passion from women managers, you know, to again, try to find their voice in this environment this corporate environment. Sometimes we're the only female on teen through. You may be the only minority very wanna team on executive team. I've been there. I've been the only female in minority in in a rural Fulham in. How did you find your voice and had that courage to speak up and let your voice? Be known as I just have a passion for that. I work with women on executive presence leadership presence. How do you show up in a room? You know, how do you present yourself because you say something when you walk in the room before you even open your mouth, right? So I just have that passion of working. How does a female leader be assertive? Yes. Not aggressive. Yes. And not get that, be nickname. Yes. Yes.

Put that ideal on the table ten minutes ago. Now, let's let's talk about that. Right. But it takes courage to to do that. You know, some women leaders will retreat because they're not being hurt. It will push back. And because they're like, okay. No one's listening. Anyway. So why should I even try to you know? So them how I value. I do bring knowledge to the table. And so I just I you know, I know how Affeldt in situations like that. And so if I can help somebody. As they're going up their own career ladder. And so that takes some self reflection some suffo- wear nece, right? And so that's what I coach on, you know. Whatever, you know, everybody's not the same. You can't do this cookie cutter thing, it's whatever authentic to you. And your personality. You know, my personality is like really, I just sit that ten minutes ago. Right.
