"brandis" Discussed on Design Speaks
"And creatives permission. Because especially when you do go to like a formal design institution i know. I was taught and didn't even really understand how to find my own voice for at least a decade out of college. Because i was taught when you are a designer you basically have to morph into whatever client you're working with and take on their persona and your ideas your thoughts your inspiration like your own personal. Anything goes away and so for a long time. I was definitely in that boat. And then i started understanding how this could work and have found this happy middle ground because you should not do the whatever you feel like also do not have to just be a tool like a school or the bad version of. Don't be a tool You can like in this happy middle place if you know how to how to do it. Where you do still know how to use the client's brand voice and all of that stuff but then implement your own stuff into it in a really unique and interesting way that makes you stand out from everyone else and so I think that we do sometimes need permission. Because we are told one thing and especially out of school right. You just want to do everything right and you just like. I'm going to do everything. I was taught But this process. While i'm telling you you need to learn it It's there's a lot of freedom in it and that's another thing talked about a lot is like there is more freedom in a box then out of it like when you know what you're working with you know what you can make you have. Actually when i first became art director. I was like how'd you lead creatives and i found a book Called hurting tigers being the creative leader that creates launch. Something like that and he talks about that. Lightning are generated. Todd henry that yeah. I i saw him speak when he actually launched that book. Oh yeah i love it right book if you wanna be a leader as a man but he talks about that if like you can't just give designers created free rein because then it's like okay. The landscape is way too wide in so often within boundaries is whenever we really find our creativeness rollout more creative ideas come out absolutely so we're running up against time now but I guess i would say the question is who would you. Who would you recommend this course to like what kind of people do think should take this. Course oh man of kind of hard for rabin. Because i i can think of a lot of people. And i'm not just saying that like 'cause i'm staring just going to say that because i'm staring at you know no i. I'm not trying to like overly hyped you or your course either. I justin so thankful that. I discovered you very soon after graduating Out of college i. It has helped me in so many ways than than.
"brandis" Discussed on WTOP
"Paul Brandis is a columnist for USA Today and a finance columnist for Dow Jones Market Watch. He joined a beauty, appease John Aaron to talk about the market. If you wanted to make money in real estate in the past year, the best way by far was not to have flipped. House is like a lot of people do. The best thing was to have invested in the underlying commodities that go into houses. The price of lumber, for example, get this has nearly quadrupled since July, for example, that has added about $24,000 to the cost of a new home. Remember, that comes from the tariffs that the former president Trump Laid on Canada back in 2017 tariffs are just attacks on you. And that is what we are seeing these tariffs began about four years ago. They were reduced in December but have not been fully eliminated. Also, tariffs on metal are also contributing. I talked this week with lobbying groups for Ah, home builders, contractors, metal workers, They all say the very same thing. I wanna do something about housing prices. And these tariffs on these commodities interesting. Anything else that can be done well, the Biden administration is trying to help its proposed to $15,000 tax credit. But that's only for first time Homebuyers and that $15,000, of course, doesn't even come close to covering the $24,000 in the added lumber costs. That I mentioned so those prices. Those kind of numbers are really pricing millions of people out of the market. We keep hearing about all these bidding wars and homes being snatched up the second, they hit the market and all that. But we don't hear so much about the lower ends of the market, where a lot of people can't afford to play these kind of betting games and things like that. So if you wanna make homeownership more affordable, that is what the pros in the industry say the contract with the home builders So forth and these tariffs and make these commodities more affordable to build it. Sell a home. Paul Brandis is a columnist for USA Today and a finance columnist for Dow Jones. Market Watch. He spoke to w. T O P.

The CHO Cell Line From Reliable Workhorse to State-of-the-art Protein Powerhouse
"Welcome to the cell culture dish. Podcast the joseph line from reliable worse to state of the art protein powerhouse. I'm brandy sergeant editor of the cell culture dish joining me. Today is allen dixon. Professor of biology at the manchester institute of biotechnology university of manchester allen describes himself as a molecular cell biologist who thinks of cells as factories that can be used to manufacture life-changing medicines including protein-based biopharmaceuticals viral vectors and modified cells working with industrial and academic collaborators is developed key advances toward the understanding of how a popped toasties quality control mechanisms and genome localization of recombinant genes can influence the efficiency of choice'll systems. His laboratory were very early. Adopters of the application of olmecs approaches to provide molecular profiling of chou cells. And how such information could be used to direct cell engineering toward improve manufacturing processes alan's contribution to the sector was recognized by the award of the peter done health award in two thousand seventeen in addition to his research. Alan teaches undergraduate and postgraduate levels and has held several senior administrative roles at the university of manchester. Welcome to our podcast. Allan thank you for being with us today. Your group has a very long trajectory in bioprocessing research. And fact you've been working quite closely with the subject of our interviews day. The chinese hamster cell line today show cells are the workhorse for the development and manufacturing a biopharmaceutical products but back in nineteen fifty seven when puck managed to isolate and keeping culture. The first show k. Oneself nobody could anticipate this success. I wanted to ask what you think is so special about. Why has it ended up being so successful. Has a really good question to start with. Brandi one special berkshire well. Actually the survived forty to fifty years of use anita. They started off initially being isolated as i'm cells abuse to study cancer and divide very rapidly and a use for a long time in that context but at the same time people develop mutants that enabled them to be used in selection systems to express proteins. So by that amine being able to use a cell line noca- specific genes. They're able to use those same jeans in a vector cassette so they could use that as a marker to look the uptake of a recumbent gene. You know i think they'll janati of the true l. As because it was a. I have the bus cell line. Many groups were up on the built up. Loss of information about how the cells grew. I attended to be very or should we call a very amenable system to generate further mutations. The game the cells different properties that people could use to their own policies so as a first starting point and then i think also because show south started to be used for production proteins. The then became almost accepted. The products that kim from them went through the fda another regulatory authorities on were approved and consequently they the ease of that approval. Meant the others could follow along and also get that product to put if the us true sales as well so the became established. Now i think that's successful for them in terms of their ability to be used by many different groups to make many different types of proteins so it was a rapid growth large amount of information that was gathered about them. The selection markers it could be couple to vectors and protein expression and in the fight. They got regulatory approval. So i think that's a summary of that area who covers what special but there. Also i mean if you want to call them special. They are the million cells the right sorts of processing for the type of products. That might be used as human therapies. An such that also fitted into the special holiday volume for companies in terms of production. Who cell line.
Brandi Brimmer, Spelman College Black Union Widows and the Battle for Survivors Benefits in Post-Civil War America
"In college week black union widows had trouble claiming their benefits after the civil war. I'm dr lynn. Pascarella president of the association of american colleges and universities and today on the academic minute brandy brimmer associate professor in the department of history discusses their postwar battle after the american civil war. Newly freed black women made up one of the largest groups of union widows across the south yet their struggle for recognition by the federal pension bureau remains an understudy dimension of the war and its aftermath. My research analyzes the processes by which black women in eastern north carolina their views a citizenship in worthiness to the us pincher bureau their petitions for survivors benefits and the first person testimony of those who supported them painting vivid picture of their survival strategies free labor society in claiming the pensions to which they were in principle entitled. These women challenge the bureau's definition of union widowhood and expand the boundaries of us citizenship. The pension bureau distributed monetary resources to widows children and other dependent relatives of soldiers through a legal structure that required proof of marriage in evidence of war related that since marriages of enslaved people were neither authorized nor effectuation through legal routes. It was nearly impossible for formerly enslaved women to secure pension benefits federal lawmakers eventually address this problem through the supplementary pension act of july fourth eighteen sixty four which retroactively recognize the marriages formulates lay people within the pension system still a tedious and complicated application limited economic resources and competing definitions of what constituted. A legal marriage made security pension difficult. Maintaining they're standing on the pension roster could be just as intense scrutiny over how a widow earn wages notions of what constituted a proper family and sexual respectability became central points of contention at the end of the war. Freed women across the south said about filing petitions for survivors benefits with great frequency. They rested their claims on their contributions. To slavery's demise and their loved ones military service shining the light on their struggle for recognition underscores black women's legal acumen and understanding of the pension bureau as an arena of activism and redress.

Changing Your Look After Coming Out
"Had heard from a listener. Who had come out in her thirties and was kind of wondering how she should change her style. Yes and also kind of dealing with friends feedback in changing of her style and we received such an amazing advice and thoughts from other listeners. That we wanted to share. We really did so. Here's our first email that were sharing today. I just finished mini episode one seventy eight and as a queer teenager. I felt that. I could provide some input here for the listener about their gay style. This year as come out as pan sexual unexplored my own style more. This is something i think about a lot. Recently i've changed so much of my wardrobe and found new things that make me comfortable in my look and my sexuality. What i've learned is that there are so many ways to be gay. You can really take any style and tweak it to express your identity and it doesn't have to be blatant for example. I've always had a darker edgier look and i've started wearing flannels with my goth. Clothes and makeup beans are also a nice touch that make everything a little bit gayer but not to gay also little rainbows are such an amazing and cute way to show your pride if none of these stereotypically gay items of clothing fit your taste. I have many friends who just like to dress and the colors that they feel express them instead of focusing on the items of clothing themselves. There's really no correct way to be queer and you can really and you really can make any item of clothing as as you want. True allies will support you no matter what you wear and no one should ever be pressured to dress in a way that they are uncomfortable with. Hopefully some of these suggestions help. Ps as a gen z. Are i must admit that. Cates use of the word ziesel her makes me cringe but of course i always appreciate the words. You guys make up as for trends. I think there's so much more acceptance of individuality in today's teens at the ones i know so whatever is considered popular online is really only. What a specific specific group of people are wearing regular life though. The controversy is always interesting and often hilarious to see Thank you teen listener. I loved us soak we. This was so such a great email to receive. I'm so honored. That teens are listening to this podcast. Oh the teens are so great. I think the teens are really great. Which terrifies me. Because i've always thought the teens were bad. Especially when i was a teen but i kinda think. Today's teens are awesome. Yeah i know it's really interesting. Yeah all right. You want to share this email diary. I would love to hike kantor. I wanted to write in response to the listener searching for her style. Post coming out coming out in my late twenty s i was so torn between looking to gay or two straight wanting to feel like my full self but also not wanting to seem like the stereotype who comes out and changes everything. It was helpful for me to consider. What stereotypically feminine elements of my style. Had i embraced. Because i truly like them. For example always having my nails done and other things had. I rejected. Because i was worried. Someone could suspect. I wasn't straight noticing what i had an impulse to like but held back from was usually an alert to that internalized homophobia rearing. Its head and usually was silly. I not buying fund metallic birkenstocks or not wanting to follow brandi carlile on instagram. I'm sorry to laugh. I'm laughing. Because i love brandi carlile and i. I love italian stocks. I did not realize that. Brandi carlile was Something that would lead someone to suspect that you weren't straight okay. So just like how. I tell the diet culture voice to get lost. So do i. Now try to tell the hetero normative voice in my head to shut up. Let me live when i find myself holding back from buying doing wearing listening liking something a helpful. A help fought narrative. Reframe for me. Was that many queer people have common interests were style just like many californians or new englanders or chefs have common interests or style. And none of those people aren't buying or wearing or doing something because it's to california or new england or sheffi so like what you like and if it gives people a clue that you're not straight so what it's not a secret and now you have a life more filled with things that feel good and bring you joy to boot as for the listeners. Friends my favorite way to kill those comments is a deadpan. That's weird or rude thing to say not creative that universally applicable
Chicago school district cancels some in-person classes as labor dispute flares
"Person. Classes were canceled again today for chicago. Public school students who were attending in person. This as the battle over school reopening is being fought between the district. The teachers union prekindergarten and special education cluster. Students were given the option to come back to the classroom earlier. this month. looming over the standoff is the threat of another teacher strike as the two parties are over. Covert nineteen vaccination plans cleaning protocols and even which data in science should guide the reopening process. About an hour ago. I spoke with mayor lori. Lightfoot and schools chief janice jackson. I began by asking dr jackson. How close is the district to a deal with the teachers union. And what are the major sticking points right. Now as i've said this week we are trying our best to make progress. I think there's no reason why we can't have a deal in cr students back in the classroom on monday. I know so. Many students and parents have expressed our excited. They are about that opportunity. So that's what we're planning for a with regards to the union. I think some of the sticking points that we've been talking about or the past few weeks related to testy vaccination and accommodation still are outstanding on. But we're going to continue to work car because we know what's at stake in. That is making sure our kids get a quality education mayor or jackson at what point does either or one of you arrive at the bargaining table to close the deal. Well i think we've got to make more progress grants. I think it's important for your listeners. To know that since june we've met with the t to now over seventy times. It lasts two weeks every day including saturday and sunday. The schedule time is from eleven to five every day and we would have expected by now to make a lot more progress in the last week alone. We've given them to different on comprehensive plans one plan which we updated and we've given them. I think that covers every single issue. Eight different issues from ventilation testing to plans and protocols what happens if there is a a positive tested linked to schools. So we're serious and we're going to be made it table but we've got to see some progress it. We've got to see a series of purpose on the other side. For example today we got a proposal from the other side. Include things like defunding. The police and having the cpu dictate housing policy in the city. Now obviously neither of those things is appropriate for bargaining on teachers contract. So we need them to get serious to come to the table. We can get a deal done. I am confident that we can. We keep waiting and hoping that we're actually going to have some issues that we agree on the issues that we've been talking about now for weeks. We still don't have agreement on a single one of those issues and every other bargaining experience. I've been in both as mayor but also in my private sector life. You focus on an issue you resolve it and then you move onto the next issues. We haven't been able to do that with you. Which frankly to that by since there is no deal you know. Kindergarten through eighth grade did have the option of returning starting this monday. Do have the option Starting this monday to be back in the classroom but even a large group of aldermen have called on pushing that date back a week. Dr jackson is that something you'd consider to avert a strike and get a deal done in the interim. Yeah as i stated earlier this week we remain steadfast in the fact that schools should re-open for students on monday february first. So we're still there. We're committed to that date. I think that the district has gone above and beyond from a planning perspective as well as all of the planning that has been happening for local school level. We have proven let us not forget. School has been in session with ask three weeks with students in our cluster program in students in our pre k. program in we have been successful. We plan for various scenarios we to implement our plans with fidelity. We know that we can do that for our kindergarten. Eighth grade students nets. Will we intend to do starting this monday. Even if i can add brandis. Let's let's also know that we're we're talking about this in the context of case rates dropping acitivity rates dropping. All of the metrics that we follow. We've been following since march of last year or all trend in the right direction and to those automated said. Let's kick the can down the road and get more time seventy times that we've met multiple times over the last two weeks we can get a deal done on a purpose and putting our kids i at the table and they have that faye mayor's was just going to add. That said you know this was calling for teachers to be vaccinated more teachers to be vaccinated before a reopening. Why not what. What could happen if you just wait for that. We have a. We have a comprehensive plan for getting teachers vaccine which we've had on the table for quite some time. Obviously gotta do it in the context of the reality of the limited supply of vaccinations at all the other. Frontline workers who've actually been outlawed in the grocery store worker sanitation librarians. I mean the list goes on and on absolutely we want to prioritize. I'm teachers and we have a plan to do that but we need to get a deal done. We need some movement in

I'd like to welcome you individually so berry. Welcome to the world cafe. Thank you thank you dave. Welcome to the world cafe. Thank y'all have to be here. It's great to have you both on now on the surface the two of you might seem like an unlikely pairing so get into how this all came together berry. I understand that your son steven had something to do with you. Getting tuned into the dave cobb universe through the music of artists. He's worked with like chris stapleton and jason isabel and. Brandi carlile it. Could you tell us how that happened. Yeah well i mean just outside this room. Stephen came out a darby her. This and on his iphone it was chris stapleton and just blew me away so i thought wow. That's that's for me. You know as right up my street. And and if i'm gonna make anymore record that's the guy i want to work with and i said who is this guy called dave cobb and he's the probably the biggest producer. Ah in the world right now. i should okay. Sounds good to me. Let's find out he's interested in dave. What was it like getting that call. Like what was your reaction when you heard from berry and his people. I'm a massive. Bg's fan and their early records You know top ten albums for me and specifically to be i and it's something that i obsessed on for many many years. I mean that. I record particularly it has got to love somebody on it and holiday and turn of the century and these songs that to me. I love records at sound like. They're you can't imagine humans getting together and making them. They sound like they're made in remarks or something that was one of those records seminole records getting that call and getting to do. Some of these early songs was just more than i ever wish or dream of mine. Well it was an incredible experience. And i thank you for it and i sincerely hope we get to do it again. I promise not to be show nervous. Very i also read. That stephen can convince you that people would want to work with you which blows my mind because you know you're one of the most successful songwriters of all time. Why would you think that you're very kind but nashville is a different world. It's a different world and if you if you're not accepted in nashville then you not accept it. That's all there is to. Nobody explains it. You're just you know. And and at one occasion. I was in nashville and i met ricky skaggs and got a chance to make a do a track with him and it was called soldier. Son and and I was. I just thought you know. This is where i whether other people think showing this year along
Should I Pay Off Debt Before Selling Stocks?
"So i'm twenty five due to a very fortunate situation i kinda got doubly lucky here and got some money from my parents and my grandfather and also got really lucky investing in some things. I didn't completely understand what that money like. You often say The tricky part about that now is the ninety. Five percent of my net worth is in stocks. And i only make fifty grand a year Getting ready to buy a house at my fiance. i'm just concerned about the capital. Gains tax hit to create a downtown for the house. Some thinking i've made my fair share of dumb decisions but this money being young obviously Got a big chevy tahoe. That you know. I don't think i necessarily deserve. But i just happened to like something and do i sell it number. One deduct free and create positive equity to maybe absorb that tax. It or keep the truck just because i enjoy it is the truck paid for twenty thousand muslim but Yeah i i'm either way. I'm not taking the car anymore. So i'm thinking bill situations neither reading it off and you're twenty five years old. You make fifty thousand twenty eight thousand dollar truck and you have how much in this investment account. Six hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Wow wow yeah you've got you've been blessed beyond measure he s and how much how much of that is gain that is over a year old Probably about seventy percent of it okay. So that'll be taxed at fifteen percent and it's in single stocks and from the way you're describing this it sounds like it's fairly high risk situation in my right Some of it is the i decided you know. I got scared of it pretty early. So i moved sixty percent of the into management. I would say the other. Forty percent is individual stocks around consumer data collection and medical diagnostic collection. Yeah yeah uber. High risk cutting edge small-cap technologies and. Yeah you're pretty much. Playing russian roulette with those things are the roulette wheel anyway So The way i answer questions. We answered questions on this show is what would we do if we woke up in your shoes. Yeah man first off. Thank goodness you're where you are. Congratulations that's wonderful. The danger is that it worked that you may try to do it again. That's that's the dangerous part. It's like the guy that drops one quarter into a slot machine wins and he spends the rest of his vacation but all his money in the slot machine. Try and do it again. because you're not going to do it again. I d i. I do not have investments of those types because They scare me and And my real estate portfolio alone is worth hundreds of millions. So i can speak with Emotional authority in this situation. How it feels. When i was your age i was a millionaire and lost everything. And i don't want you to fall into that. What i would do is i would Move anything that is not in a managed account in mutual funds. Into that. And i would pay off the truck tomorrow if you're going to keep it Normally we say do not own things that are more than half your annual income. This is barely but you also have six hundred and fifty thousand freaking dollars laying over here so. I think you can afford a driver's truck if you want to write And then Believe it or not. I'm going to suggest you do not buy a home with your fiance right now. On number one. You don't buy homes with people you're not married to After you're married. I would rent something even if it's something nice for six months get to know each other. It takes about a year of being married to know how close to your mother in law by. Yeah yeah in other. After a year of marriage you will make different housing decision than you would make today together. We've been running here for about two years. We've been married. yeah correct after. You've been married a while. You will make a different decision. You would make as shacked up john say's It's a different thing. Just is true and so i would take my time. And you've been the. There's a tortoise and the hare you've been the hair and you're ahead in the race and i'm going to switch sides and become the tortoise and i'm just gonna slow your butt down on the investing and on the house i'm really happy where you're where you are and you're obviously a very sharp guy. Yeah i mean you're obviously very bright so you may not do anything we say to you called and asked us which the danger of that is. We're gonna tell you. Tell you the truth and i think he will dave. I think he's he's a little nervous a little scared. He wants to make the right decisions. She wants house. Yeah and. Here's the thing. Dave i was going to say instead of for you know. Save like you said spent the first six months we year when she will get married and then with him walking away after he pays the capital gains. I pay cash. I'll pay cash for the house. That's why i was gonna say did i. And i'm saying it's like a two three hundred thousand four hundred. I don't care i've hundred. I don't care now you're good really. Everything's paid for everything. The money's gone. Yeah of it your all your taxes. Well i mean by the time you guys not the. It's back. investment accounts. Guess yes your taxes at fifteen percent on seventy percent of six fifty is just. That's not gonna cripple. The situation is And yes i would pay the capital gains in order to get this in the right setting and it doesn't sound like that much of it's gonna be subject to capital gains because sound like you've already done that when you moved from these higher higher risk things into the manage stuff you probably took your capital gain chen you liquidated investments to move them. That's my guess anyway I don't know exactly how you did that. But that's that's what it sounds like. You did to me so anyway. I'm gonna pay what capital gains. You got to pay for making the move and get it all undermanaged and i would sit there something for a little for a year after marriage six months after you're married then i would buy with cash and pay off the car today and i wanna say to america listening. You are processing at work for him. Let me go try that. No do not do it. I mean i think the numbers. They've update numbers right around. Seventy eight percent of the people who play in his field. Do not make a dime. They actually lose money and so Yes you hear. It worked over here But it does not mean more than likely if you had a buddy that will hit a lottery. Ticket doesn't mean that smart by lottery tickets. It's just you know that's the bottom line. And so and brandis are gavin smart enough to wise enough to be a little bit afraid in this situation. But congratulations that you're there. I'm so happy that you're twenty five years old and six hundred fifty thousand dollars. That's just so cool. That's so neat. And thanks for calling in asking the question.

"brandis" Discussed on The Art of Online Business
"Sunday was at eight pm eastern. Because we are trying to get like have time that accommodated other time zones in stop. However also i don't normally do webinars on facebook in so attention is like a lot less so i think that played a role in it. The difference in time played a role in it. But like i mean within the first twenty four hours we were still at ninety thousand so so you did the webinar as a live on your page. Yeah shared it into the group. Yeah gotcha you ended up two hundred k. Yeah so ninety on the first twenty four hours in in the last day sixty five thousand and so the rest of it came in the middle. It's awesome what you've done this kind of launch. Since now. we're doing it right now. We're doing two right now. Okay so what. Are you going to do differently. This time that you didn't do that original time. Yeah so. I'm all about doing all the things. All my launches in this one. I feel like so we do chat bots. We got all the stuff going. Like anything marketing. We have going except for text messaging And so one thing. Though that i'd seen a lot of people doing is like this like doing rises inside their facebook group and stuff in lega giveaways. We were going to do that. Like good. lord. We cannot do that. We've added like i'm at max capacity like no way and we had really good engagement. I don't think we're going to do that either. This launch is really going to be just focused on redoing what we just did but bigger like more ads than on our live cast is probably gonna go maybe three four hours instead of just to Everything's gonna be bigger. I think that's the only thing. I want to change the cells. Page the emails everything converted. There's no reason to change anything. So i think that's the big thing one thing will add to the next one is definitely text messaging to get people to show up and i'm probably not just gonna stream among facebook but also embed them on a page. I do think my only hang out with us. Is that people's attention span am included in. That is so limited on facebook and they get a notification they click away and so i really want to embed it into a page with a chat room..
"brandis" Discussed on The Art of Online Business
"Facebook ad managers any done for you services and i'm also a facebook and instagram ad strategists. So i love launching. I love that you always lead with the personal side of who you are always versus the business. I love that. Why why is that. Like most people are like. Oh i'm i'm so and so this is what you do in the business. You're very intentional. About yeah i am. I'm 'cause i never want my business. Define me as a person. I had done that previously in my career in. I never want my business to define me. I want my family to find me. As who i am in so always lead with my husband. I in my little one. 'cause my husband makes all this happen and The little one is why i do it so riley as my everything and then the business is just the icing on the cake and along those lines. You've really evolved your work schedule. Yes this year. Talk about that what were you doing from a scheduling standpoint. If you will and what are you doing now. I think also different times in my life. So when i started my business at five month old she always had to be carried around on me. My husband was working fourteen hours a day and so it was like truly the naptime hustle like now between dinner like at night bike. Really like making this happen. When i could and then last august when i brought my has been home from work and we switch roles now. He's riley's fulltime caregiver. And my business. It was kinda like i just found myself working all the time because i had all the time to work and not really loving what that looks like from a family standpoint and then i think it was in january. I made the decision that that had to change and this year has been a learning curve. It's not like it just happened overnight. I think in really one. I figured out the rhythm and it's been amazing rhythm since then where i don't work weekends. I don't ever have my laptop in the bed at night like that is. It doesn't even go near my bedroom. We now have an office on separated from the family. And i work monday through thursday. Fridays are all unless you know it's like i think i've worked one friday in two months so and then i have loved my schedule. I to work like eight. Am and. i'm usually gone by three so now. We're at three twenty one months as we're recording this. I'm like all right. Go home so usually. I'm home by three and i love that because i'm home in time to wakeup riley from her nap and then we have the evenings together. So i'm really loving my schedule and you say you got an office an external office. Yes we've moved house. Yeah so it's been so great for our family and it's definitely been different..
Brandi Glanville Apologizes for Tactless Erika Jayne Divorce Post
"The real housewives are at war again. This time over a divorce so brandy glanville is being accused of cashing in on her friends. Heartbreaks brandy posted a link on instagram to story announcing erica james divorce. She later deleted the post in. Tweeted an apology. Saying i took xanax earlier. Because of what's going on in the world. I didn't see the post on my idea. Erica jane until this eve. And i deleted it the second i saw it. As i've said in the past. I leased my social media out i in no way would have been that insensitive interesting least her social media out meaning like she has a social media manager or did somebody probably controls. It and i do believe that she does that. I don't think brandi glanville is trying to start a media conglomerate and is trying to be the next to you but i do think that sometimes celebrities let loose and let people just control their things. Get in hot water. Sometimes i mean what would make even the social media possess. This is a good idea this rain here. People are talking about her doing this. This is why they do it. But i mean for her to write that that statement astor if i were i would be very upset at the first the first of all. I'm still unclear charisma. To your point about what leasing her social media out means like to me. It sounds like she allows other people to go on it and post on behalf of her but just on behalf of what they think is like. I don't know just determine a little confusing hard to follow. I don't think brandi glanville type of personality as we've seen many times over like put her foot in something and then take it out and be like i didn't mean to do that. I think she sees things through. So i believe her when she says i wasn't aware what was going on but i just think it's also one of those things that's like why this is like another little thing that brandies attached to that like. She didn't mean anything by but like now. Everyone's speculating insensitive. Don't you guys thing. Set the th. That should not have no women. No none of the women should be talking about erica. Cajones divorce on their social media. That can be on the show dealt with on the show reportedly win a celebrity has a lincoln their bio. It can usually mean that they're getting paid for the post. And i just checked right before we came on the air. The lincoln brand new bios till goes to this story. She didn't website I'll double check. The website will pay you to post for them. I have friends that are in acquaintances. That are famous and relatively known people that i talked to on a weekly basis. And of course i hear gossip about them all the time. I never bring it up until they bring it up. Because i never know win. Our how are what they want to talk about. So i'm going to bring it up not gonna bring it up. Panning could be the camera like here. This why it's still linking to it. Okay so i'm very confused on. If she really is sorry didn't mean to lease it out. Why still keep it in the bio. Unless like she has a contract with celebres and she needs to keep it up there for certain amount of hours. Something along those lines to nevada those votes. Because you're looking way too deep. Today's use your tactic somewhere else where it's day. I'm just curious. Okay well good news you guys. Maybe bad news. I dunno depends on how you feel about the whole relationship and the whole situation but we just got some photos of bachelorette clare crawley that. We have to talk about claire. Who spotted in her hometown rocky and massive diamond ramo on that finger. John don't do it like no. Don't talk about the shape of the rig. You know. I mean these married. Here's the thing that's definitely a wedding ring or engagement ring She knows she's going to be photographed. She knows we're going to speculate about that isn't the isn't the again. I'm not the biggest bachelor person in the world but isn't the point to like keep the end result of what happens to you completely secret until the series is wrapped. I don't think she really cares. Guys this really crazy that's right. I don't think she gives a shit. And i think the reason is. I don't think leaving the show was her choice. I've looked back and looked at this. Producer are abc executive. Did this podcast with nick. Vile and in the podcast. They talked about clare crawley and the producer said and i quote when she gave herself. The group rose because dell wasn't in the group that's when we started making the call. So i think at that point clare. Crawley was told. You might have to leave with dale this unacceptable. And you have to go. If they're going to break the contract and break the rules. I'm gonna do the same damn thing and i'm going to rub it in their basis. I found love and i. That's a good point because typically the reason why is because they are under contract and they can truly get sued if they let the cat out of the bag too soon. Isn't that's why there's sometimes photos so adamant about keeping secrets but you may have good argument there. If they if she feels that she could that they've worked the contract. I ending her season. Then she might say all bets off. Y'all can just no. I did damn thing now. Do you think she actually went through and got married forty. She's just letting everybody else because also that's that's public record right like if people get married. That's the bachelor does not control the courts like we. We could look that up. It's interesting. I think if things were so bad obviously. This season has taken a turn. That i don't think anybody has seen it bachelor history. I can't believe. I just said bachelor history a cod my street. Anyway so i don't. We've never seen this in the past. But i don't think. I think if there was such tension between her and This show we would hear more about that. Obviously we've heard about her leaving. I don. I don't know. I think it just keeps people engaged.
Chicago Mayor Lightfoot Unveils "Pandemic Budget"
"Lightfoot the budget proposal includes a ninety four, million dollar property tax hike gas tax hike and layoffs as well as eliminating unfilled positions carol it seems like there are not that many maybe just a few good choices to turn to when you've got a one point two, billion dollar deficit. Brandis I think you don't even want to say good choices. Because, there are none. And you could route around for crop corporate head tax for transaction tax neither of which is going to pass muster of for most of the city council, a a number of other remedies that would need state legislative approval. There are no good choices, and then you say, do we go deeper into the rainy day fund immediately in the answer probably is no not right now because the pandemic is going to bring us maybe third wave of emergencies. So there's nothing cheerful about this only bad options. The mayor also stressed quote. Congress do your job to urge funding for cities towns. People are going to be receiving layoff notices on March first heather city employees. I would imagine between now and then a pretty anxious wondering whether or not they're going to be on the chopping block when that happens. That's right. It's a really a between a rock and a hard place and I think the mayor said, well, at least we can. We can. We have enough money in the bank to sort of put off this pain in the hopes that it something does pass the Senate and get signed either by a press, a president trump or future president biden and potentially But that's that's really hard on families and we heard mayor like talk. About that saying she knew she grew up in a family that lived paycheck to paycheck and that had to rely on food thinks giveaways when her father lost her job and I think that wears on her but it will not blunt criticism from progressive groups and others who say that this budget will really land hardest on the poorest chicagoans because of course, if you're living paycheck to paycheck and you might not have a job come. March. Second. That's very difficult place to be especially at a time were really high unemployment and the mayor also emphasized that there would be no reduction of service despite requiring furlough days for Non Union employees. Here's what she said sees and layoffs. We are also seeking five furlough days from all non union workers and I will lead by example and take those five furlough days myself. And we have worked with every city department to make sure that these personnel reductions will not result an immaterial decrease in the delivery of services to our residents. Amanda isn't going to be hard for residents and taxpayers to believe that services will remain the same under these difficult circumstances if you if you don't have some influence on the job some days. Well. There are rules around what can and can't be done in somebody is on furlough I'm going to guess that Mayor Lori lightfoot leading by example will still be working as mayor. There is no time off. So many of these are high level positions I don't think that you're going to see a dramatic cut or of the many things that we're going to worry about in the in the budget that that is going to be, and I will add that it's sort of difficult to measure these. Days, anyways, some departments presumably have a little bit less going on because of COVID nineteen end less demand for those services. Others are needed more than ever because residents are dependent on that but you're also giving services to residents in different ways again, because many people are staying at home. So it's all just going to be difficult to measure, but I think a choice that the mayor had to make particularly issues looking to these other choices of layoffs and raising property taxes she had to do some furloughed. Parents the mayor also says that she does not support so-called defunding the police, but she does support. Changing which first responders answer calls? How big is changing the first responder model while she's talking about a pilot program, which we don't know the specifics of yet. But this is something that is united people on both sides of this quote unquote defunding police battle. I've had so many police, officers and first responders tell me over the years that they don't want to be responding to. These certain types of calls, domestic issues, mental health people having a breakdown equipped to do it. They want to do police work, and they believe that work should be left up to mental health providers. So there is a program in Los, Angeles they've been doing this in Los Angeles where those calls go to there's a psychiatric mobile unit that runs around the city and offers services. And I've had first responders here. Tell me we need to do what L. A. is doing. So maybe this is what the mayor's talking about and it's it's so strange that you know defunding police engender so many emotions on both sides and yet this is actually something that police officers and activists actually agree on something. Yeah. Community agrees on this as well. Heather what's next? We're going to see a very tough battle in city. Council. I think we are So I think the biggest sticking point is going to be not only the ninety four, million dollar total property tax side but the mayor also wants to change the way the city levies property tax every year by changing it to an automatic increase, which is tied to the increase, the cost of living which is set by the federal government every year, and she says that that will avoid big property tax hike sort of on it every so often basis but I think that there are going to be some older minute we're GONNA have to. Sort of take a deep breath before they decide whether to vote for that because, of course, the municipal elections are just around the river bend at in two thousand and twenty three, and that could make winning reelection and more difficult. I. WanNa follow up here because I'm confused, we've got the one point two billion dollar budget gap, but there's also hundred million dollar budget gap this year because a revenues came in so much lower than what intimidated obviously because of covid how is that? Does that money just get sweeped into the next year I don't understand how that works. For the stint as might what I do right now. Is being filled by refinancing city data. So essentially, they're taking debt that it is at a higher interest rate. They're sort of refinancing it hoping to get a lower interest rate and they're taking those savings and then using that to cover the

Interview with Brandi Davis
"All right. So tell us who you are and what you do? Hi, my name is Brandy Davis. I am a graphic and web designer by trade. I am recently entering into the apparel industry we're going websites for my Niche is small businesses. I love helping small businesses and entrepreneurs create their branding and get their sites off and running and able to be profitable for their businesses. Nice. Now before we kind of get more into what you do and your background and everything. I've been doing this check in with everyone this year back of the pandemic. So, how are you kind of holding up during this time? I I'm starting to balance out. Thanks for asking. I'm starting to balance out when it first started that first month was very tough wage literally work came to a stop and understandably. So everyone was scrambling trying to figure out how to shift their business models from events and different song. Things I think stuff started to sort of shift a little bit better for me. Probably around May or June right now. We're starting to wear like on an upswing. So we're starting to get more clients that are looking to now they have a better grasp of what they're doing virtually. And so now they want to execute so things are starting to pick up a little bit more but that first month was like whoa, like it was silent. I had to struggle myself to sort of figure out like, how do I shift to support people in a life that that this ideal for us virtually for it to be a graphic and web designer. This is ideal. But how do I shift my model and Mark it to my existing clients and helps them in a virtual world. So I have a shift a little bit as well as a little scary at first, but it's starting to balance out and feel a little bit more like normal. Nice. What are your work dog? Kind of looking like right now just in general. So I try to balance things out between the graphic and apparel side because I do in-house printing for that piece. So I have sort of like a split day where maybe like the first four to five hours. I'm at this desk designing probably the last and then I do like some mean time in between and then late in the evenings. I'm printing for about another 3 to 4 hours. Wow, and you're doing the the printing in-house. Yes, I would say about 93.3% I know that's a weird number, but about 93% of the printing is done in-house. I used to use an online resource, but now just to kind of keep quality and that's basically to keep quality in shape. I was like, you know, what is an investment, but I need to bring this in house to make sure that I'm giving the customer what they expect. Wow. So you must have a dog I mean, well, I don't know tell me like what does that space look like it is so I'm home base. I am fingers crossed looking to move into the studio space of bigger workspace wage, but it's literally basement Workshop setup. I have a printer that he presses everything all the equipment that I need to treat the garments. I have any other like vinyl cutting different things that I do depending on a designs. It has been self-taught to for certain extent. I was not familiar with any of this at first I had other people that I would work with so long. It's yeah, it's it's not a massive work space but it gets the job done. You know, it's enough to kind of get the job done. I utilize about a fourth of the basement. Okay, I'm curious about that because you mentioned you know that you were doing it online and I know that there's a lot of these sort of print to order type of places where you can just like upload like an EPS birth. Something upload the design and then they'll do the printing but I feel you on the quality. We try to do merge at revision path. Oh God, like two years ago. Yeah and the quad he was definitely very sketchy. Like some people would get the shirts and the image is all glitchy and stretched out and I'm like, oh I didn't expect wage is definitely a trial-and-error with different printers. Yeah, because yet you could have a good run with one printer and then all of a sudden you'll get an image a t-shirt back in your life. This is not how we should look so it is it was so hit or miss and what I didn't like was I would have customers or people it was it luckily. It was people that knew me and so they were reach out and say hey just FYI. This is how a shirt look in case other people call and say something and so that's how I would know because lung Three people who were supporting me in the beginning were friends and colleagues. So they would reach out and say hey this is what I receive. And so then it was like, okay. I have to think about other option and I did do some local printers here in Chicago for a bit, but I still needed to they all had different print processes. So one person might get one shirt printed with screen print and then one person may get a vinyl shirt. And so it was so all over the place that I was like you need to streamline this because at this point it's starting to look more like a hobby business. And so I had to make the investment my family was super supportive everyone around me, you know were super supportive and helping me get support page that Financial place because I was literally diving into something that was way out of my budget, but, you know, we managed to, you know, they were able to support and manage the page. Get everything in place. But yes, it is very sketchy with online printing. Yeah,

Lisa Rinna Should Have "Warned" Denise Richards
"Daily, there been claims of affairs hookups and lies on the real housewives of Beverly Hills this season and last night more friendships were put into question. I should aborted you even though you run a plane, it should have sent a text. Didn't I think that's where you feel really bad. Because you don't work. In that tearful exchange at least arena admitted, she should've worn denise about the affair claims Brandi Glanville was making about her if you haven't been keeping up brandy told the ladies she hooked up with Denise and she brought it out while cameras rolling. Do you think Lisa's should've warned her? I have such a new appreciation for talking about this show now that I'm back on watching it because of the quarantine and this. is so nuts I just every week I cannot not believe these are grown women that are like acting like this. If you like Kyle, only one that has like a symbol of normal normalcy i. I only witnessed in niece and Lisa sort of not at odds. But at least it just sort of being like look you Kinda signed up for this show like I never got a moment of honesty. You're always sort of dodging things. You're always sort of trying to botch the scene. So I feel like that moment was a little inauthentic in my opinion I don't know I just feel like really want want her to be honest, I'm sure she did feel badly after thinking about it but in the in the dynamic, you've seen the two women you haven't really seen even though they've known each other forever give it really seen them be really close throughout the season if that makes me. Feel like are the people on this show even remotely for someone tells you something? Wouldn't you be like okay these told me something about my friend I should probably let her know that this is coming like no, but Lisa likes to stir that pot a little bit on with. TV and wait for the cameras and have it all day. What would you do if you were in? Lisa's situation would you go to your friend and let them know that this is coming out about you? For, they're gonNA attack you know. I. Yes, I would tell my friend I think I was like you know regardless of the show I know that it's a show and I know that you want to get as much content on there to make people go oh, my God what's happening as I normally do whenever I catch to show but I have to let your friends know especially something like this. Could you know Kinda tarnish your reputation and people view you differently and you got to tell your friend? Last time I checked they are friends. Yeah I don't know that I'm saying like the full season has been very like they've known each other for a long time. They are friend I think Lisa's like the in for wide Denise's maybe on the show but I also know that Lisa had an incident a few seasons ago where she dropped the bomb about something that about information that wasn't her talent that if backfired so I know she was more guarded about saying something but you know this is why we watch this show because it makes absolutely no sense. No Sense. Another exactly. Exactly have you ever been in that situation before because I've been in these situations where I have found out some information about a friend or even like a an acquaintance that I? Respect. If I have found out something about them or rumors going on or their husband or boyfriend has cheated on them, I'm go to them and say look I cannot live with myself knowing this and seeing you go by completely in the dark this is what I know, but you have to take it upon yourself to. Investigate further Have you guys been in that? I. Feel Like I've been in that situation since like fourth grade like there's always something to tell there's always something you see there's always something going on. There's always information that you're privy to, and it's always that decision of whether I tell my friends and not I think it depends on what that is. If it's something like with the friends marriage or something internal, you have to let them I. I think figure that part out on their own. But if it's something you know miniscule or something that one of your girlfriends, your male friends set to somebody else or something that rubs you the wrong way. Then I think you should say something but I think it's deciphering whether or not. You should inject yourself into somebody's business or just play the outskirts and just see what's going on from outside.

I'm Lauren Chairman Be Offs Executive Editor and I'm joined today by Brandis Daniel Chief Executive of Harlem's fashioned row Sandrine Charles founder of Sandrine. Charles. Consulting Henrietta Galina Brandon creative consultant, and today we're GONNA be talking about a really important topic always but you know especially in the last few months, how to tackle system racism in fashion it's a really big question I'm sure we'll only. Get Two to one or two points here. But but we want to do as much as we can, and in this hour that we have what I wanted to do I is for each of you to introduce yourselves and what you do in your own activists as well. So maybe talk a bit about what you've been working on in the last couple months as the civil rights movement has really come to the forefront in the US, Henrietta maybe we can start with you. I, everyone I'm Lena. I am a direct up by way of saying have been in the fashion industry for. About fifteen years now. What can range of. Brands. DIFFERENCE CASS grades. and. So. My wife is always been rooted increase efficiency inclusions I've asked. My wife tens of mocks stories. An image making and I would say, miss recently I WANNA be. confounds the cut initiative which Let's have a appoint Yucky. Great. Thank you brandis. What about you? I am the. Founder Pearl Fashion Row and icon sixty Harlem's fashion row has been doing this work thirteen years we on started really kinda focusing on designers of color in creating opportunities for them, connecting them with brands, press, and with consumers as well. we've also done several brand collaborations have been a great way to really bring diversity to brands who who may not have had. It were win couvert hit on the pandemic. We started a nonprofit icon sixty, which is basically a fine or designers of collar and We've been able to raise thanks to the NBA took over a million dollars in donations for designers of. Car. It sandrine last but not least I am. Sandrine. Charles of I have been working in the industry for thirteen years. Now, I own Sandrine Charles Salting, which is a week. Calms and Everything encompassing that agency her fashion and lifestyle brands. In addition, I'm the founder alongside Lindsay People's or the black and fashion council. Thank you offer for sharing that so. I think to start. This is a really big question, but obviously, the civil rights movement that's happening right now has been. Very prominent in the news in the last month, it's obviously never not existed but it suddenly. You know the fifteen percent pledge. Protest every single day. Brands are really saying I. WanNa make a difference they're publicly. Saying I'm going to do all these things to be more diverse, etc, etc. Now, a lot of their ex employees or or. You know. Consumers are calling them out for not practicing what what they are are pre chain and I'm curious to know from you all your all veterans in this industry you've you've witnessed this the systemic racism that is particular to fashion. What what do you think? The biggest issue is Ashen and that we can start working on or You know people are already working on but what is the? Biggest point that we need to tackle in order to start fixing all the little problems that have come out of this. Don't know if one of you wants to start. I'll. Brand half. Start I think on what Sandrine Lindsay is doing is asking with the Black Fashion Council asking brands to actually put a quantitative solution in place it's the same thing that Aurora Jane tasked with a fifteen percent pledge i. think the brands have to fully commit and the way that they can fully commit being you know here's exactly what we're going to do. So when you say I want my sales to get better you don't say go out to your. Team and say, you know what we want better cells next year what you do is you say WanNa ten percent increase we want to fifteen percent increase you know right so you create very clear goals so that you know if you're successful in meeting those goals or not successful meeting notes and if you're not successful, there are things you put in place to make sure you overcome that in me that all it's the same thing with this rain so I think. The first thing that Branston do is say, what is our commitment? What is our our firm commitment? Let's start with a very clear commitment and work our way back because my fear is that if we just start having conversations in conversation is a really key piece to this in having with lack people in non black people ruling to have honest dialogue. But my fear is that if we're only talking is the passion Unin die down in another. Year and I. think that's Oliver Fear Rate. But if you put a very clear plan in place and you say, this is what these are the numbers. We're GONNA hit across our organization that means in our leadership and on our boards because let's talk about boards and how they're barely any black people boards. There's only one black. CEO in the entire fashion industry. So that's just say what are we gonNa do across the Board in our organization? And then you work backwards from the air and doing what you have to do to to meet that goal. I one hundred percent agree into because of that I think about what the solutions, all the problem. I always come back to equity. And that's ultimately I think about risk driving for and I think what makes this time so ready Angry special in many ways, is that the asking leadership to support us with? Of. Traditional tax. Supporting. Mental. Internships I think already doing now is we're actually asking our structures like quite literally reopen is themselves to include us and then from where all collectively dying today. Tearing structures, things I. think that's really the only way that detained from a call out that house structure best is the Cha I'm. Deploying mechanisms to. Erase. Racism, I I think it is about equity. Entering do you have anything to add to that? Now I think this are. Really great points. I. It's definitely. A lot of things that Lindsey and my style and the executive or have been working on in terms of. What our goals out of its in having a long term strategy with friends is really essential. There's no way you can teach someone to unlearn something that was you know systematically in place for all of this time. So it's essential for us to not only educate work alongside people who are really willing and ready to make those changes. Over time in for us, it's a three to five year period with benchmarks and timelines and touch points. To see where are in how they are evolving

That's a full day of things that we love guys. Yes it's so it's so much fun. So weezer medley go check it out. Thanks for listening How was your week of recovery? Oh my goodness So the week we came back Cayden was sick so we got back on the twentieth. which was a Sunday and the very next day is supposed to be like a full home school day? My Home School days are all Mondays and Tuesdays and then half day Wednesdays and Monday. Kate was sick and I was a little bit. Mike jetlag Dover hungover not a law like didn't feel I didn't feel terrible until until about four or five six in the evening then and then my body was like wait a minute where we think we're seven hours ahead. Why are you sleeping sleeping and I would just feel really tired but I don't know it might be all in my head? I don't know if those things you gave me or like a placebo but I definitely took those. Did they work. I don't know what I'm saying. I don't know like I didn't feel bad at all on the way they're like. I felt great when we got to Paris and then on the way back I only only felt tired like I said in the afternoons. Okay so I don't know if they helped it's possible but Kenny seems to feel a little bit worse than me me and he didn't take this so it was like I'm not GonNa take him on the way there but maybe I'll take him on the way back to get him and he's like doesn't need that that kind of stuff and I was like okay. Yeah so I took them. I was happy to take them. Give me all the things. Give me all my anti anti nausea meds. Give me pain things. Give me whatever it takes to make this more bearable. So right yeah. So that was an uncanny. Got Six you either either. Kenny and Caitlyn had separate things and Kenny. Got Something from the plane or we got home and Kate and gave it to Kenny. And then Kenny gave it to me so I was sick so the last episode probably sounds a little out of it and my voice didn't sound great but it was good. It was an episode. So so so yeah that was does basically have been feeling in the past week since I've been home just missing doc missing everywhere. I missed my kids. My family and I missed you but you know I missed your my family Andrew Joel like I missed like my close friends and Stephanie and stuff but it was like do I have. I mean I miss home but I don't miss home. Did you Miss Mr. You didn't Miss Your House. No I missed my bed I I don't know like we. We only slept leaped in one bed. That was like a little bit springy. Like where you can feel the springs but actually when you slept at didn't feel them lake when I was just laying there like on my phone right before we went to sleep like I felt them and I was like. This isn't going to be very comfortable nice upgrade all night so I don't know but I can sleep. I can sleep a a lot of places. I don't really like miss my bed. People are like this my bed. I guess if I was traveling my bed on the train nice probably would have missed my bed but we stayed in in like normal hotels most of the time so I don't I don't really helps Kenny. Well like I missed. I missed home. I'm familiarity I'm like I like everything new all the time all the time. Did you listen to any good music. While you're out there while we were out there I listened to sleeping at last probably the most just because I listen to it to keep me chill on airplanes and we did we did. I counted them up. Nine flights total Dang between here. We had three flights just to get out of the country from are from New Mexico. Because there's no direct flights from Albuquerque overseas so we had to get to Boston from here So there was that there was the the in in Europe flights to get to Glasgow from Rome and then London and stuff. So there was a lot of flying. I listened to a lot of Sleeping at last and also also kind of funny if you think about it because he writes a lot of songs about space he does so calming calming and they're all doubts unloaded stream anything right because downside is upgraded his phone to like the regular speed so so we could have normal like l. t. e. speeds in Europe but didn't want we didn't feel like it was necessary to spend the money to do that for both our phones right so I had cruddy service service like super unless we're on Wifi and you're the one posting so I know it was making me insane but he was the one that needed the maps MHM like the whole time to like help. Other places was a trade off on well. I guess we'll have to wait. Which is why? I'm so behind posting while we were in Paris why there was a lot more Wifi by the way I'm like as far as the world is concerned that doesn't know me we're just getting to Scotland. I think are we haven't even gone there. Are Ya Ya. But streaming of that of Scotland loves calling so good but the song that I am bringing today. Okay as an is not necessarily something that I listened to while I was there But it's IT'S A it's part of like five or six songs that I've been listening to you on repeat for probably three or four months which is very unlike me but because it's a few different songs is not the same one but So angels and airwaves released some new stuff and the first single that they releases called rebel girl. And it's really really good and it's It's that's the song that's at the top of this list because I really love it and here it is Tom. Aw Uh and mark you think had you heard it last week. Yeah well no yes and no. You played it for me a few weeks ago. I want this to be my song for that persona. And then he forgot to play.

Little stories that I would not mind sharing again with me because they're so funny but I know I I would say that I was like no Michelle. We can't talk 'cause we're saving it for the podcast but I've just been jetlagged and sick the past like two and a half weeks. Yeah I mean you guys went hard and then came back to Eh. It's the it's the season so whatever through this season the season to get sick and be like Oh yes vitamins. Wins Find Bugs. Oh Yeah I guess you were cooped up in a little. What is that? It's like in a little enclosure. I mean you know it's a jumbo jet but it's just basically a giant germophobic nightmare. Yeah trains and lost lanes and trains and automobiles. Yeah actually. That's exactly what you did. Or what have you been up to 'cause. I haven't heard much of your weeks either. I feel like my weeks have been an actual blur I've done a lot of normal. Like take my kid to soccer practice and make sure. I have groceries in the house which. I can't say that I've really succeeded at uh-huh same here we've had wingstop a lot lately and I'm just like I don't know I like wingstop. I guess which protein I realize exactly. I realized I don't like eating at wing. Stop but I like eating wingstop when I eat at we get it. I smell mel like wingstop the rest of the day. And I'm like oh I think just like wet and bathed in Vat of Greece like gross. Oh they don't like it anymore I've only I don't think I've ever I think I've only ever eaten at wingstop. One time I always get it takeaway. Oh man that's that is not a bad thing honestly. I usually eat there with like work people. And that's when the whole office smells like Nasty Nasty Greece. The rest of the day wingstop. Can we get takeout. wingstop for our lunch break. Go to the park. Yeah please his anywhere. Yeah a picnic wingstop. It'll be so good. Donald J like wingstop. She you know if I ask her she'd say no but I think that just might be the age that she's at like just like Jerry. Yeah but last night I didn't and get her any food and she ate five of my wings. Wow it's like okay. I guess you're eating. I mean at least you're eating so cool yeah but Yeah I just I guess she likes it a little bit. But she would endeavour say she. Did God forbid we did Halloween Gene. That was lots of fun. I spent literally the weekend before Halloween. Crafting which is not my favorite thing to say. Some women centered in your so bourbon. I know they love crafting. Some people love it. They're like our hobby lobby and Michaels and all of the craft stores and I could go with never stepping foot in one ever again. There's between crafting and making though. Were you crafting or were you making. I guess I was making yeah. I don't know that I don't consider. What can he does? Crafting I guess he would implicate Hobby Lobby and Michael. But I don't think Kenny's crafter Sir I had to like do trunk for a trunk or treat And that was like there was some crafting involved but I had to make a lot. I had to draw that Cheshire cat. It's not my it was pretty great. You guys it was. It was fun I feel like I could have done better. I didn't didn't have a lot of notice. Let's just be honest. Had for the time you had looked antastic. Thank you thank you. I was sad but also like hey I did this in this amount of time. So that's pretty good and then so once. I finished that I had to make. DJ's costume for Halloween in. Because she's like I had time for this one. Let me just preface. I had look credible I was like it was a long on a movie set. Who is this girl? It was so much fun but let me tell you. She told me like three months ago she wanted to be a mermaid. And I like like Little Mermaid just a Merman Mermaid had like a lot more creative freedom. Yes which I was so thankful for because I did not want to do a little mermaid I mean in in fine I guess but I would rather do what I did So then like a month ago like where a month out from Halloween. I should start working on this. Yes and did I. No no I did not start working on this because Work best at the last minute. Yes okay so At some point I was walking through target. And I don't usually like I've kind of gotten away from those like those types of stores. I don't know to call them. I Don I don't doors serve like target Walmart like I don't know I spend a when it comes to clothes. Spend a lot of time in thrift stores. These days I see. That's I don't know how to target just a meandering store. Yeah so you just go in and you meander I was meandering ring and exactly what I was doing. And I came across this clearance section because it's almost Fall time obviously and I I see this like really huge mermaid thing that I think is probably meant to put over like a bathing suit or something and and I'm like there that it was like three dollars and it was a good is drifting. Yeah exactly well yes and I'm also going to use it. It's A. It's a costume that she can destroy up in now I bought it. It was a ten to twelve like this size ten slash goodness. That's twice her age. He J- huge. So I had to like this is what I that's all I buy soda. I I know how to so I took home egg but knowing how and actually doing it or are totally different. I have one like one thing down like. I don't know if you won needle. Oh stitch one stitch down like I have. I have on needle needle. No I have a lot of sewing stuff. It's weird but but I don't have like a sewing machine. I don and I have a sewing machine that I never use and Kenny uses it and then it broke so they're see they're a little Scary to to me. They're intimidating. Sewing machines are so. Just give me a sewing needle and some thread and I'll make in a few hours. Yes so I She wasn't wasn't here when I did this. Because DJ around anything sharp is like asking for asking for a trip to the ER. Yeah and I don't have time I'm like I'm already doing this last minute. You know and so she went to soccer practice. I didn't take her. Kelly did and I sewed and I sewed this thing. That's as like that was perfect for her. And I ended up glued and get you hot. Glue was my best friend hot. Everyone's brand if they know it. Yes and is hot glued her costume together like a pro And so her costume like I so like the dress to a shirt a pink shirt that she she had that was also for like a size is like a size ten as well. I'm like wondering why God he's huge. Close this huge clothing. Like what am I doing. And so Didn't like it looked great. It was fun. Yeah so I sewed it all together. I went made a trip to the dollar tree and glued a bunch of stuff on there found some shells shells and looked up in easy. I literally typed an easy. Diy Mermaid makeup. Gosh it looked incredible. Do you want me to tell you my I secret. I mean obviously on a secret. It's literally on Youtube I stretched a fish net stocking over her head and did make up. Oh whoa like regular makeup with a fish head over her face yes sort of so. I had a little bit of costume makeup like the cream. I put that on. I like I just dabbed Heimer almost no it was. It was really really The cream that I had was purple. Oh so it was like a purple cream like it was for Halloween makeup. Got It and I just had that like. I didn't have to go on by the ice aimed at from last year so I don't know if it was safe oops she didn't die so she is safe and I would have used it on me. I don't know And so I just dabbed it on her and then I did like find find colored makeup like teals Greens on her. And that's the result. I got so I'm GONNA try really hard to get this photo into our show notes so you need to send that cause your description just does not do justice. I came on it and I like glitter. What is happening did you do that? Did you pay somebody. Can you do this. What's going on in this world? I just did it and I said stay still a lot so my goodness and then the way she posed for that picture I was like Oh get out of here. You're just held up. That was her treat for doing so. Well at dollar tree while I'm shopping for all like the shiny stuff to put on her costume. was she got to pick like lip gloss loss and she picked a shell lip gloss and so it was perfect. Perfect for her costume and then she just stood there posing like I'm a little pen. Says it was so cute. I loved it. Yeah it was tons of fun so I basically just like that took it out of me that took it out of me for whatever it is it was out it was gone and then And the Cheshire cat reading and the Cheshire cat so yeah and then we did the whole Halloween thing England trick or treating and she got so much candy and I eat like five pieces of Candian night at this. It's so gross. I know it's their right if it's there it's like Oh oh Kenny. While you're up can you grab me like four many twix and yeah three kick Shockley. Otherwise I don't even think about candy. I don't even buy candy. But like she got a lot of good stuff too and I'm like there's still so much there's so much kitty cats and there's so many like I love almond joys and is slow one hundred grand they're like I don't think I know what's in one hundred grand. They're like crunch bars. Oh Okay and and I like the Heath Bar ooh the heath bars are so char and jolly ranchers shooting each other ranchers. Well I'm only because because we didn't get enough kids coming to our door so we have we had bought like mix and so yeah you live in a call to sack so I know I didn't think that was a bad thing. To- Kenny was like. Yeah we're at at the bottom of a hill in a cul de sac. So we're like the last of the last in nobody comes down. You know what you should do is you should come out to the end of your driveway with with like a table and stuff. That's what I assign a trick to these please visit does know where we go. Trick or treating in Albuquerque is on fourth worth and solar. So it's like right across from Dion which is a pizza place Acehnese which is a Mexican restaurant New Mexican restaurant and fourth in solar is I like the place to trick or treat all the people come out of their house. They have setups and they give you candy and they have like fire pits out. You don't have to go outgun doors. They're just like hanging out on their lawn. Yeah and some of some of them have like scary things. Like somebody like built a casket like the one that Kenny built for work. They'll do casket and had like one of their friends in it like dressed up all scaring he won't like as they came up so it was like fun stuff and it's super family friendly and we had a blast. I we trick or treated for probably like an hour and a half until it was like way dark. No it was a blast. Dj only fell over her costume once. So hey that's win. She's pretty clumsy she is like it wouldn't be a night if DJ didn't fall.

Apparently they grow in the fall. Yeah go to the fall it my I think it just depends on whether oh but we'll see Michelle barely made it into my house to record tonight the weather I know it's crazy looks like it's passed now. I see blue sky. I it was like crazy lightning and I was just telling my daughter is like now when you get out you need to run to the door. This is when he gets the door like John. Thankfully I was so nervous I instead it is like stopping the day going and watching TV. I've been crawling into bed and picking up Harry Potter Reading I kinda cheated start from the beginning of started in the fourth bucks your favorite book. What's your favorite. It's just when things start to get really serious and so are is not a kid and he's not a kid anymore more so he's a straight up teenager and so it's goblet of fire. I have not read them. It's Okay I. I believe you will well. It's it's so doing things I that's good. That's good so I read. I got through goblet and now I'm onto four order of the Phoenix and I've been really say you can't read fast well. I mean it's Harry Potter so it's like I know what's going on. I know but for some reason this one gets me like oh my gosh it was like I'm glad no one was there but at the same sometime I was like I'm just in a different place of life apparently because I was reading the fifth book which you've seen the movies which one is the fifth one fourth book Goblet the fire. He's like going through like there's like the dragon and there's like the maze at the GATT and so I'm reading the fourth book and he comes comes back from the graveyard which is the end of the book and you see he gets dragged to an office and then you see like molly weasley easily in the hospital wing waiting for him and she's just like freaking out and I start crying as reading this because Molly Weasley is like the closest thing that he has has to a mother and she's taking him in as her son and just thinking like from my mom's perspective cedric has just died and his dad is just like you. You know like this is the end. This is the first time you read it since being a mother yeah oh some every and so. I'm just seeing it from a different. I've just been like I. I don't know like this is devastation. This is the worst thing like like off in the ten years ago. I was like yes edrich dies in really sucks but like and then what and then what happens yeah exactly and so like reading from that perspective is just like that hit me in a weird way. They didn't explain. We're all alone got. It was like crying in my bed alone his weird that I'm crying over Molly Weasley right now I mean I cried over Logan Lake Nick. I've never tried to show you know so you mean yeah. It is it is what it is. I guess you'd have to these fictional characters.

Buy I impulse buy a stick and poke a friend came in with a stick and poke Tattoo Tattoo to work and I was like Amazon literally what happened. I like not even joking. I was like Oh my gosh. I can do that. I'm I'm an adult and then I went to Amazon. I'm like they have kids and so I bought one. It was only thirty ISH dollars. I think and now now I'm just so when you doing one for me.

You know, I don't even know if my vote counted, and blah, blah, blah, don't don't give up. This is what we have to fight with. We have elections to fight with. And by the way to FOX who just ran a Chiron about how do we get back in with suburban voters? Suburban voters that costs us the house..
