"evergreen" Discussed on Plant Of The Week
"We'll fred your plan to the week. Well it's now plants. Marcus as i would propose the at this point time. Almost all trees are totally defoliated. Some few that don't get totally devoted. The pin oaks and a few things like that are not however once the leaves are gone and once all that glorious color is gone then i turned to all tall evergreens now by that meaning the big pines spruce came a separate source or bald cypress no well bald cypress also but the the other cyprus our provider juniper they all now have taken over the skyline and in some cases that's good well in all cases it's good but in some it's bad I deal with a lot of suburban situations. Where as plants a grownup both evergreen and shade trees. The evergreen start to wane because they're getting too little wind flow too much disease build up and etc but by and large. I like to see the evergreen trees at this point in time and they become quite obvious what you don't necessarily notice going up and down the streets in the summertime spring fall and so on We now have the glory of those evergreens From the fine texture of the white pine to the more coarse texture of the austrian and scotch pines we have the spruce that have the tiny needles usually a very deep green We have the confirmation of those trees now. Most spruce will stay in form. However pines often reach a certain height and then spread out so that we get all kinds of different forms all different colors and shine and so on all of that really brings forth this time of year now. The only time that is not good is if you have lost pines due to disease or are now losing spruce do disease which we can't really stop much. Well we can talk about it. We can spray and try but it doesn't really work so in any event as neighborhoods redo themselves through mother. Nature's devices We may be seeing more deciduous trees and their character From the standpoint of being deleted. But i'm hoping that we will always have enough evergreens to carry over that winter so the pine spruce false cypress the arbor vita big juniper's all of that kind of thing and if you don't think there are bigger provider juniper's go through old cemetery. Those what we put in as well. It's just between properties for blocking and screening. Now have a twenty inch trunk on them. You know it depends on the age of the cemetery. But they'll run fifteen twenty thirty forty feet tall and that'll turn your mind to evergreens for sure..

Not real looking. Dr seuss looking skinny tree from my place that was decorated in brightly. Dr seuss ish colors. I was single. And i could do what i wanted fast. Forward a husband child later. And we started accumulating homemade and keepsake type ornaments. Each year we get a metal ornament with our family portrait on it so in eighteen years will literally have a tree called memory lane but these handmade and photo ornaments. Don't necessarily go with the aesthetic vision. I have each year. We have our ornaments stored in bins by color. So each year we can change up the look or mix two colors or whatever we choose without hauling all the bins. Only those we want because they're labeled my answer to this conundrum of looks verses homemade ornaments was to have both so my tiny twelve inch wide by five foot. Tall grinch tree goes upstairs with all the kid ornaments. My childhood ornaments are photo ornaments and the wool animal ornaments. That my son loves downstairs. It's the more aesthetically pleasing and real freshly cut christmas tree. We get the best of both worlds and we managed to do it without a lot of space. Size and proportion is tricky to judge. If you're going to cut down your own tree because large trees look small when sitting out in a field take you're measuring tape and measure the height of your ceiling and then subtract the height of your star for the top and then subtract the height of your tree stand and then allow for at least two inches of breathing room in between the top of the star and the ceiling. Next measure your maximum width allowing for ample space to walk around and take these measurements with you to the field. When buying or cutting the tree better homes and gardens has a great article titled how to choose the best live christmas tree which linked to in the podcast notes. The douglas fir is a long lasting cut tree that holds its needles well with a pyramid shape and bluish green color. It's one of the most popular types of christmas trees available in most regions. They're lush and full with compact branches and a strong evergreen sent for heavy ornaments. They recommend a frazier for. It's also very fragrant with by color. Needles deep green on top and silvery white below. This tree is more cone shaped so it would fit well in a smaller room or tucked in a tight corner. If you have a collection of heavy ornaments or lots of lights in garland. The frazier is a good choice with its sturdy branches. If you're all about the sent choose a grand a for with shiny by color needles. Bright green on top white striped underneath the grand for has needles that are softer to the touch than some other popular furs which gives the tree a fine textured appearance. This species is possibly the most fragrant among all the first boasting a strong spicy sent. The noble for has well spaced branches covered with upwardly curved blue green needles and aren't as quickly as some of the others though it stiff branches can support plenty of ornaments and lights noble. I have a similar pyramid-shaped. Douglas firs but better homes and gardens. Thinks they haven't even more classic. Christmas tree appearance with an almost layered look to the branches. If neat and tidy is your thing a scotch pine might be the one for you with a conical shape piney sent an excellent needle retention the soft green needle. Stay on the branches. Even if the tree gets dry so you won't be left with a lot of clean up if you forget to water it for a day or two. They often have slightly crooked trunks. Which can be a plus.

Seattle - Washington state sees record hospitalizations
"But 19 hospitalizations in the U. S. Have now reached their highest point. Since May and here in Washington state hospitalizations have hit an all time high coma. News has learned. Plans are underway to scale back some non urgent procedures. Comas Camilla reports in the throes of the cove in 19 pandemic, the Evergreen state once again, setting a new record Saturday. This time, it's the number of hospitalizations due to the virus 762 people. Now taking up beds, according to the covert tracking project. I'm very, very worried about it.

Joint replacements, heart valve replacements. Even you know, potentially some cancer surgeries being canceled to make sure that there's room for covered patient. Some good news. Many in the medical field are saying Washington state health care workers might have access to a vaccine by the middle of next month.
Is Snow Good For Plants?
"Let's talk about snow for the plant new and discuss whether or not it's bad or good for plants. Yeah i was thinking about this. Because i had a question ellen from a listener who said. She didn't know whether she should plant this new plant because the snow and the winter cold might be hard on it and that got me to thinking that those are two different things the winter cold and snow. And maybe we should talk about whether snow just by itself is hard on plants. So that's what brought me to this topic. I think it's a really good topic because the answer might be counter intuitive to some people because the fact is that yes winter cold can be very hard on plants and sometimes snow can be depending on what kind of snow it is but snow actually is a great insulator for many plants and can help protect them against winter cold so i don't think that's something that most people understand. Yes you're absolutely right. I've had people say to me. What's the best protective mulch. I can put on the garden. And i usually respond a twelve inch snowfall because it keeps the temperature of the soil. Constant it it protects the rupaul's from heaving. Oh and this was interesting to me. Maybe you knew this. But i did not i read and hopefully this is true that as snow falls through the atmosphere it actually collects nitrogen and sulfur from the air and then kind of like delivers that to the ground. I'm going to say that only partially correct. Come because you're right. It does collect that as it falls through the air. And if that is one of the spring snowfalls or maybe. I don't know maybe you have. These snows more in the santa fe area. Then we do here. But in order for that nitrogen to be delivered into the soil. The snow has to melt fairly quickly after it falls. That is so interesting. Because in santa fe we get six inches in it melts twelve inches. And it's gone. It accepts in melting snows and melt so for you. That's no fall is what they call. Poor person's fertilizer for us here in the northeast where the snow typically stays. You know through the winter on the ground or at least say's first several days or a week or two Then all of that nitrogen that those flakes have picked up falling through. The air actually goes back into the air as the snow sits and so we only get the poor person's fertilizer when we have that you know freak two inches of snow in april and it melts right away. Well since our soil is much crappier out here than yours is. I would say that we need it. Well snow does contain. It's got nitrogen or not. It does contain a lot of airspaces snowfall. Which is why. Snow makes good insulator. I've never had as many beautiful fox gloves. As i had the year after we had a good two feet or more on the ground all winter long so it can be a great insulator for plants and of course the one way that snow might be detrimental to plants is when it's really really wet and heavy and either mashes plant down or break slim's off of shrubs or trees or that kind of thing or occasionally if it falls very wet and then it gets really cold and freezes into ice and again can break things. Yeah and that's more likely to happen in. If you've got like an early fall when the leaves are still on the trees in those leaves hold a lot of snow or if you have evergreens that are going to get way down and sometimes you see ann arbor vitae that gets covered with snow intellectually like split. And that's very sad. So what i do usually if i get a very heavy wet snow and i can see. The branches of trees are bending over. As i'll go up out there and knock some of it off actually discovered one other way in which snow is beneficial to plant. And i haven't thought about this but it makes sense when you think about it in a winter warm spell if you got a little bit of melting and there was no snow cover some plants actually say oh yeah it's time to start growing they'll sprout and then it gets cold again in that greenery dies off but if you have a nice snow blanket down and it warms up some of. It's going to melt but a lot of it's going to stay on the ground and protect that plant from sprouting too soon. Which i thought was kind of cool. Yeah snowfall moderates the possible heaving and thawing and freezing and and all of that back and forth temperature swings that seemed to be happening more and more in many areas. A snowfall
Must Have Shrubs With Ken Druse
"This time to try to narrow down our list of must have shrubs to the real standouts and tell us why i can margaret. I know you'll never get it to three. It's funny you said that because when we first started talking about it you said one and both of us that we can't pick one. Can we even pick three right So which of your books. We always give copy of what looks only talk on the show at with the transcript of the show. What do you think i mean. Is this one for shade gardeners this one for. What's this one for a cheat garden shade garden would be a good a good one. That's always a huge hit so good good. Good good So we're at you. And i in our lives are at what a another expert friend says is the shrub season of our lives which is sort of rather than crawling around dealing with lots of fussy high maintenance perennials. It's kinda great to have some big fillers like mature shrubs to do a lot of showing off and yet not ask a lot of us. So where do we begin. What's a shroud. i guess. Well a strobe is a multi stemmed plant of woody plant and i guess that's sort of describes a tree would have one trunk one stem herbaceous plants die down to the ground soft tissues and shrub is a woody plant. That is bushy bush. I don't like that word for describing his trip but it's rub can be bushy. Okay okay and we should say before we start naming our desert island trump's that we didn't include khanna first because really that can that's a whole other conversation So many shapes and colors and textures among those so Do you remember your first. Trump been is still there and is it a favourite or it didn't make the list. Well i get. I get to pick three right okay. You want me to tell you. My first well you said conifers. And i'm not going to talk about converse but my one of my favorites shrubs is. Evergreen is a what is called a broad lead evergreen and it's a bucks it's a kind of boxwood. I have too many of them. And it's a box with semper barons. Graham blondie yes and it is one of the most colome ner plants i've ever seen really but It's a shrub and it's minor. There's probably i have some. That are like seven feet tall and fifteen inches. Wanted if you can imagine that. They're they're like punctuation marks. You know they're like exclamation marks in the garden. And as i said. I have too many because when i first got i always wanted them and then a nursery not too far from here a lot of them. Nobody bought them and the price kept going lower and lower and lower. I think i have made. I may have twentieth them when they were eight dollars a piece. Wow that's a lot of exclamations. A long time. I know and i i also keep moving them. I just moved three boy Son they want son you know. I'm sure they would love son. But i have all my box with. I don't have any full sun. But i have some of my boxwoods in quite a bit of shade and they stay calendar. Sometimes i tie them up because the snow might split them a little bit or you know splayed them. They don't break. But i do. I do tai the ones that are floppy up for the winter. And i love it if you says boxwood called graham. Landy columbia okay. I don't actually have any evergreen things at all on my list whether broadleaf or coniferous And i was thinking when we started this conversation today on the phone that my first trump passion was the genus vibe burnham. In back in the day we had a lot of divi burnham's like the double file and so forth that turned out to be kind of invasive and a lot of areas of the country. So i don't grow those anymore. But lately i've been cultivating more and more native ones like the maple leaf a full liam then tatum the arrow would and so forth So that was kind of where my shrub journey began. But the thing. I have the most of you said you have a lot of grand. Blondie is winter. Barry holly speaking of things. And i don't know what came over me. I mean it was the birds that came over me early on here in this rural place having been grown up in the city. You know coming here meeting all the birds and knowing that learning that they liked some of them liked fruit and that the native hollies were one of the ways to fuel the migration in the wintertime. And i planted about forty five or fifty of them in three very large groups in different directions toward the perimeter of the property but in different directions where i can see them from key windows in the house at a distance in the winter and all different varieties and Big ones small ones. I got a lot of fruit and birds a like very much. And yeah so waxwings and robins like in you know hunt flocks at one hundred or whatever at a time will come in right around now november ish and again to pick over at At the first snowfall and so forth and they'll strip them all pretty early on but one trick with winterbourne. Hollies if you want some that will last longer for your visual interest. The non red varieties they. The birds leave them longer. They're not as interested in them. So many yellowish orange ones and so the lighter colored ones and the winter

"So tablespoon size dollops on wax. Paper once those dollops are frozen, you throw them in a plastic bag, and then again whenever you're cooking, you can go to in grab one of those and throw it in a dish Parsley Mary. So well with potatoes with different rice and couscous grain dishes, I want to circle back though because you're ways of preserving it by freezing are good. One thing you never WANNA do to preserve parsley is dry because that just takes all the flavor what little flavored has will evaporate but the drying. Dried Parsley that should be against the law. So because it you know it tastes like I don't know dried grass or. No flavor no flavor at all. All right. Well, I will say this I will consider some parsley centric rap. But just using it as like a garnish for potatoes and rice and stuffing is not my bag baby not garnish you make a twice baked potato and then you mick some of that Parsley Pesto into the flesh of the potato and with the olive oil, and you have that fresh flavor of the Parsley and the olive oil and you're. Now seeing I would go for that and substitute sage or Oregano or something with the stronger flavor and what can I say the world is made up to kinds of people, Seattle personally lovers and people who can do without before we leave this topic though on that note, I, would ask you have you compared the flavor of the flat sometimes called plane. Parsley sometimes called Italian Parsley and the curly because I think that the flat the Italian Parsley has far more flavor than curly parsley I have used both and I actually preferred the flat because I find it easier to work with and the flavor is a little bit better, but it still doesn't. Get my motor running. On our main segment today. I thought that we should talk about. Dreaming, for a time when things get back to normal or dreaming for a time when we can travel or perhaps frankly planning for a way to travel in the coming spring and summer even if this pandemic is with us. And, that said, I wanted to talk about planning a garden trip. You know. We're certainly likely to be cooped up this winter and imagining where you might go in the spring of the summer can be a way to. Look forward and plan for something for Happier Times whether it's a shorter cartridge that you're able to make or a longer trip. You know there are many garden destinations around. Yeah. You gotTa have something to look forward to somebody someday somewhere one said that to have a garden is to believe in the future you don't plan to see if you don't think it's going to come up and I think that holds true for this. You know so many. Of US have been sheltering in place staying home and the idea of planning a trip. Even if you don't get to make it, it's fun to plan. It's fun to think about it to go online and look at the photos and look forward to what you're going to be able to see in person and the other thing that's possible about planning a garden vacation is there are so many different gardens in all parts of the country that you. Could drive to. You don't have to get on a plane, some of these gardens which are smaller not as well known as say, The New York Botanical Garden or Longwood deserve your attention. I have a couple of small gardens. I wanted to mention today that depending on where you live, you could just get in the car and have a family outing and spend some outdoor safe time in a beautiful place. Yeah. One of the first things that I..
"evergreen" Discussed on Plantrama
"This is. John for Nari. It's the podcast where there are no stupid questions as long as the topic is plants. Today, we're talking about parsley garden destinations and evergreens on balconies. We're going to start out with what's for dinner. It's the end of October Parsley. May still be growing gangbusters in your garden. So what are you GonNa do now? Well, one of the things that I'm going to do with it, of course is to continue to cook with it well into the fall you know. And and I am particularly in love with being able to go out and harvest fresh parsley to put in the stuffing that I make for Thanksgiving dinner. So I always try and save a little bit of a Parsley plant. I've got several growing in my garden right now and I try and save at least one in hopes that it will be still in good shape which it often is where I live for cooking for. Thanksgiving. So here's what I do with parsley absolutely nothing would never grow it is my opinion it's not worth it. There's no flavor it's kind of this gen role benign freshness it's pretty I'll use it if I need something green, it's not my thing is Why I call parsley the Rodney dangerfield of herbs it gets no respect. Pretty Little Garnish and they don't value it. It really has a lot of flavor, and if you think about it, you know there are many dishes that depend on that parsley as flavor. What's that? dish to bully yes. Yes. All right. So I was just GonNa, say if you use, you say it's a really good strong flavor. All right. Then give me a dish that really focuses like send me a parsley soup recipe. I will make it and then I'll tell you to bully is a perfect example because it's mostly parsley right with a little bit of what is it got couscous a little bit of onion a little bit of something but it's basically and I feel like there. There we go..
Coronavirus cases go up, the market goes down
"Yet things up it's pretty simple. Virus cases are way way higher in way more places. There is no relief package coming probably February at the earliest if at all, if everybody is honest with themselves. And that's it that all spills over into the real economy which the stock market is not thank you very much but it does reflect and so you get a cratering day on Wall Street today all three major indices off three three and a half percent all sectors got clobbered including the reason commercial aviation. We mentioned that because Boeing reported a quarterly loss of four hundred and sixty, six, million dollars this morning planes just aren't selling right now company also said it's GonNa lay off and other seven thousand people. So marketplaces and Euler gets his going with a story about a company that is a big factor in that real economy I was talking about. Boeing said today expects to end next year with around one hundred, thirty, thousand employees. It started twenty twenty with a workforce of one, hundred, sixty, thousand. Richard Otto Lafi as an aviation analyst at -Til Group historically, Boeing's been the world single biggest planemaker and the biggest single exporting manufacturer in the US. So it really isn't needle mover in terms of the broader economy and Sorta like Ge. Boeing has worked to diversify Boeing has a lot of commercial military defense software and engineering programs. It's not just building the. Big Seven, forty, seven jets of old. That's Arthur Wheaton at Cornell University. It's a pretty big corporation and has a huge impact on supply chains. He says there's a vast array of subcontractors in the US and worldwide that produce four and with Boeing. So in demand for Boeing products declines, it's felt by many of Boeing seventeen, thousand suppliers like those who make. Jet Engines and parts for wings keeping my you know these are not just people that are turning wrench. Michael Boyd is an aviation industry consultant in Evergreen Colorado.

SEO Project Implementation Process With Cassie Dell
"Cassie happy hump. Day, and welcome back to the voices of search podcast aid that how are you? I'm doing great excited to continue to talk with you about some Seo workflows book could be more fun exactly. So cassie so far this week we've talked about getting your research done understanding who you're trying to reach what you're doing to make sure that your seo efforts make an impact and then set your strategies and selling them up the chain eventually hopefully, your strategies get approved, then it's time to make the rubber meets the road when you're going through and thinking about project implementation, how are you setting up a workflow to make sure that your project goals are clear that you're executing your milestones and that you're driving business results? So, now that we have that comprehensive list I, mean there's a pretty big balance between are we tracking everything correctly looking at desktop mobile? Is there any locations other storefronts are given surrounding cities that we need to track is a list of terms comprehensive is it tagged well, things like that. So just making sure the foundation that project is staffer success is the most important bar. Think about keyword optimization here I not necessarily technical optimization and what you're doing is you're making sure that when you're implementing your project, you're gonNA have data segmented in a way where it's easy for you to understand what's happening is it my you know P- product key words is it my brand keywords right? You're going through and creating sort of tagged list to be able to cut your data by variables. Is there a similar process when you're doing technical projects in theory you would think about things and segregate them into individual groups but they that I'm working on. Schema update for van working on page. All of those are going to have their individual subcategories beneath them. All of that should be segmented in tagged and Peres ordinarily. Yes it's all working towards the same goal. It's nice to have a general direction just like we do with keyword dragging. Talk me about setting your milestones and just understanding how your projects are being implemented rolled out tracks whether they're completed. You know, is there a process or workflow that you're following to get through creation publishing evaluation? Walked me through the workflow that you're going through. When you're thinking about implementing. Let's say a content project. So for content, always like to make sure that there's at least a baseline that we actually see that growth happen. So especially, content objects. For example, if we're looking at something and saying, we know we're going to produce twenty articles I like to see where it was before we start to produce these so that as time goes along I, could see how it's performing months one month to month three when it peaks and find that data and say I have a general understanding of how my website will perform as I add content in different segments across. All right a step one, you're gonNA create a baseline. Assuming that step two is you're doing some prep to roll out the project whether it's your content creation your code if it's a tactical project, is that step to where you're actually kind of building the deliverables. Stephan Elliott have the templates that all the contents ready were ready to publish. That's really that step of kind of just doing the last minute polishes and making sure it's optimized for what our goals are. Talking about the publication timing. So I'm assuming step three is publication than talked me about publication timing and how you basically set the like line in the sand of here is our pre evaluation stage where we're setting a baseline than here's one were implementing your changes are he tried to roll everything out at one doing a phased approach? Depends on what kind of content I mean folks are editing maybe product details pages because it's such a small amount of content we can roll it out in bulk. If it's a big word, they're trying to build evergreen insubstantial content that's always going to be the backbone of the website it comes in stages. That's where that keyword and term as it can happen because bursts kind of going after content that's going to get us the biggest thing for up and then gradually working through that stage, and now going to be that longer dovetail of we expect contents, GonNa get a lot more traffic and insight in a very long period of time versus a quick win.
Groundcovers With Ken Druse
"You know that I used to love for its variegated sort of silvery and green leaves. kind of almost looks like an IV ish Gr-. vining but low prostrate thing lamb the astrum galley. Dolan Yellow Archangel which you know thirty or more years ago when I planted it, it was like a coveted thing. And now it's on the invasive list in the North West and it's invading into woodland's as the climate warms. In. The Northeast and you're starting to see it on the invasive list in in new areas and so forth and I, have suddenly forty miles of it in my garden because it no longer stays. You know within a reasonable range. So I mean maybe we should I say what's the ground cover and what do we want to use anyway, right Okay The me okay. I. Think a ground cover is a plant that increases in numbers over time but does not run away or spread too fast it's usually we'd suppressing that's what we hope and we have a couple of those. And you think of ground cover is something you can walk on, but there's not a whole lot of plants that will tolerate. Being walked on besides grass lawn but a ground cover is anything that could do what I suggested I. You know spread a bit and suppress weeds and it could be seven feet tall. It can be a big SHRUB and I've seen that. But. I. Guess. What do you think is that just about it? Yeah, and and like what you said you know we think when we hear if you hear the phrase ground cover, you would think, oh, turf can walk on it but there really ain't no such things I mean there are so few things that can tolerate that I mean maybe creeping timing lawn, you could technically walk on but you know really almost none of them so So yeah. So it can be any hide I completely agree it's it's it's maybe a living mulch is. Is the. cloudy a west of landscape designer of fido studios. She says, plants are the MULCH. You know that's one of her key phrases that we need to remember and I think in a way. Like I have a lot of masses of ground cover. Like Geranium Macrocosm, the big route Geranium. Yeah and doesn't seed around doesn't it is rise Amadeus, but the rise zones don't spread sideways underground. It's of like it sounds big route on the surface. So, I find that he's unit, you can just edit it. You can pull out a bunch and throw it away and so forth but it gives you weed suppression that you were talking about right it's it's it's a living mulch It shades the ground under the trees and shrubs. Moishe helps keeps moisture and etcetera etcetera, but it's not so rambunctious that it's troublemaker It won't jump out of where it was where you intended to be. Does that make sense? Yes. There was one plant here. Twenty six years ago that some. People before I bought this place planted and I'm still. I'm still a ratting in this year. It was it was a ground cover this year. I think it almost eight the house. And the it's. Tonia. Oh Yeah Tuna however that Chameleon plant that's a nightmare. That's actually one of the most popular stories on my website ever is one of us visited from Google searches is about can I get? How can I get rid of? You know how can I kill this plant still full fill fold on Mare plant? Yeah. We've mentioned it before it is nightmare plant but but the draining macaroni him by comparison, it only exists in the places I, put it in though I started with a few plants I now have large expanses of it. It means that I don't have to weed. Those beds as often nearly evergreen even here in zone five B and you know it just does a really good We'd suppressing kind of a job. But then there's like the Lambda Strom. which wants to take over the earth and. So. Forth. So then you're you participated in its takeover. Bid And so. There's lots of things and we should say, of course, the disclaimer as ever. What is invasive in one place or becoming invasive is again, the temperature shift the the weather the climate shifts is. Is Not, the same as in another place something may self. So in Georgia that doesn't self so in Michigan and In the neighborhood yeah. Depending on soil types and exactly. There's so many things that you can grow like your angelic. I cannot grow that right for you that. COMES UP YEAH so. So I mean, the classic things that
It's Pumpkin Spice Season!
"Let's. Let's talk a little bit about spices both the spices that go in the pumpkin spice mix and some forged by society. Right we should. We should also mention and I guess the one that I would like to start out with cinnamon, which comes from the inner bark of plants in the genus cinema them. and it is an evergreen tree in the Laurel family and there are several species in growing in various areas and. People might want to if they're into spices, they might want to get you know the Vietnamese version and the Indonesian version or the version you know the from Malabar cinnamon and and just taste them and see it's a spice that has long long been used to not only ceremonially but and in culinary But also, for fragrance and all kinds of symbolic applications as well. I don't think everybody realizes that there are so many different kinds of cinnamon and that they come from different trees and that the flavors are very different. The strengthened the spiciness, the natural sweetness, all of these vary from cinnamon to cinnamon. And I'm very fortunate in Santa Fe. We have a wonderful store called the savory spice shop I took a class there and learned a lot about the different kinds of sentiments. So I actually have a couple of different kinds at home i. think my favorite is the Ceylon Cinnamon. That's the one that I really liked the best although it is much more brittle. So if you're making something with the whole sticks, you have to be a little careful that the pieces don't all break apart but but I love the flavor of that one. Do you have a favorite cinnamon I don't? I tend to. In, cooking I tend to use whichever when I grabbed I. I'm. I will admit but I have ordered several varieties from penske spices which company create. Yeah. Company that I like and So it's fun fun to compare them and to just think about them you know both at their place in history their place in the history of the expiration of the world because you know a good deal of. World, exploration was driven by the desire to bring spices you know back to. Europe? And don't forget. Cinnamon is the inner bark of a tree. That is pretty darn cool. If you ask me who was the first person yeah? Thinking that out it's not the outer bark. So it's not that they just took a piece of the outer bark and chewed on it and thought this is delicious. It's the inner bark and who'd who did that? If I had to guess I would say somebody cut down the tree and smell the smell and. What is that and started sniffing around the tree and figured out where that came from but that's that's you know that's a guess. Well, it sounds like a good guest to me. So we talked a little bit about all spice in our true or false section and I want to. Continue that theme and talk about a spice that I forage for that sometimes called Appalachian. All spice that is the dried fruit of the spice Bush Plant Linda Benzoate, and I've mentioned that. Plant on this. podcast before it is literally one of my favorite forage spices and when I don't have it in my pantry and makes me very nervous because I like to use it in suite applications in savory applications it's absolutely delicious with some natural. Sweetness. It's got the warmth of all those you know Pumpkin pie spices, and honestly it's my go-to spice I rarely use nutmeg all spice and cinnamon anymore because to me the spice. Bush. Kerry. Has It all and it's a wonderful flavor and a very, pretty ornamental plant for yard as well. Well, that's what I was just going to ask you this is not you? Know as as many of these spices from the tropics This is not a tropical plant. This is something that people could plant in their own yard. Yes it's a it's hardy believed to zone four. So that's a pretty tough plant. It's native to the United. States east of the Mississippi everywhere from New Hampshire to Florida there are some isolated populations of it in Texas. But in general, it prefers it's not as happy an alkaline clay soils and that's what we tend to have out here in the West but it's a diocese plan which means separate male and female plants. So if you want to be able to harvest the fruit, you need at least one of each, you can also use the stems and leaves to make a t and they have a slightly different flavor. But for my money, it's the fruit that really is where the love is. Do you picked this fruit when Ans-? Ripe. But not dried and then dry it out. Yeah or is it the seed? Is it the seed or the fruit I'm glad you asked that C. L. because it's both the fruit is is small and read about the size of barbary fruit and I pick it when it's red although if it started to dry on the shrub that's okay and now is the perfect time to go looking for it depending on where you are. But if you're in the northeast the mid Atlantic states now when you should go out and look You can use them fresh and they're they're soft I usually dry them, and then keep them hole in the freezer and grind them as needed. But if you take a fresh fruit and cut it in half, you will see that the orange pulp, the redskin surrounds a soft blackish grey seed. Now, some people say that the seed tastes like pepper and the black pepper and the fruit tastes like all spice and they separate them I kind of think they just do that because. The seed is black and peppers black I don't use it all together and really it. So you're eating both the fruit and the seeds you don't separate the nudist dry and grind it. Very cool. Very cool. Well, you know I don't have any growing in my yard right now but you've you've made me want some. So I'm going to have to check that out for planting next spring.
Blue Spruce Is Not a Good Tree Choice
"Getting back to trees. I know a few years ago Chris. We had a terrible problem around here with the some of the evergreen trees. Are we still having problems with mainly the spruce trees? Yeah, especially blue spruces. So I have to admit blue spruces are going right to that list underneath the pear tree. It just it's not a good tree to plant at home a lot of problems. We consider the short-term tree. It's a five ten year tree at best and they're getting a lot of problems and the biggest problem right now is needle cast which is a fungal disease causing the the needles to drop off the keys. It can be prevented. It can be sprayed but you're spraying those trees every year probably for the life of the tree. So, you know, the question is is a worth the investment and trying to keep the needles on the tree house. And what we're finding is a lot of times when people are calling us to treat these trees. It's too late that the trees are already defoliated 50% So, you know if you have a blue spruce and it looks good now is the time to be thinking of Saving it. Once you lose 40% of those needles. We can't really add 50% back into it. All we can do is really try to maintain what it looks like right now. Yeah, and then so if you have a big beautiful blue spruce you better be prepared to take care of it. Yes, just like emerald ash borer, you know the key to the streets right now and you know, it's people going to treat them for years. They started treating before they started to die and start to look bad the same things will happen with the blue spruces, you know, they're just they don't grow well in our area, you know, they look great but they just don't grow well in our area, you know switch them out with a calm color for you know, something that has more that blue tinge might be a little bit better for our area other some other spruce trees of the some of the some of the I guess green ones. If you for lack of a better word that are better healthier, yeah in Norway spruce has you know, those are those are a great spruce tree that grows well in our area. I love Green Giant Arborvitae. There's one of my favorites. They're very fast-growing upper body a little bit bigger than your traditional Arborvitae that a lot of people plant song. Nice single stem. So when you get that February ice and snow, they're not flopping all over the place. Those are probably my two favorite white pines do well hit-or-miss. Maybe Maurice name is more, you know, south or north. It's hard to plant white pines right along the river in our heavy Limestone soils. So I'd be careful of the white pine trees but you know, signal-to-noise off the Green Giant Arborvitae, so let's do really well.
Headstones spray painted in historically Black cemetery in Austin
"Austin Police Department is investigating after Cem headstones at the Evergreen Cemetery were vandalized with spray paint over the weekend terrible through masked man in the city of Austin's Parks and Recreation Department said.

What are the benefits of podcast seasons?
"This week's question comes from Ethan. Hi, I'm them one of the hosts from the young perspective podcast and my question is, what is the point of using seasons, my podcasts, and if they're really beneficial at all, thank you. Thanks for your question. He said now podcasting in seasons can make things a lot more manageable. It can relieve that pressure of constantly having to release new episode and to find time to grow your audience. Now that being said, there are some downsides to it. So let's take a look at what they are and whether podcasting seasons is the right move for you. Before we talk about the benefits and drawbacks of podcasting in seasons, let's talk about what it even is. Think of a podcast season like a television series where with the number of episodes you're telling a sustained story or talking about or exploring a theme. So types of podcasts at do really well with seasons are things like audio dramas where they have a story arc or narrative or Evergreen topics where you can explore a topic at length. Now, the number of episodes doesn't really matter as long as you are declaring, it's a podcast season and you're taking breaks like much you would with a television series. Benefit number one is that it's actually easier to produce because you're doing upfront work in planning your stories or interviews so that you have everything mapped out by the time you hit record unit exactly. What you need to do benefit number two is a gives you a break so that you can work on improving your show. Now I don't know about you but having to consistently produce an episode marketing engaging your audience all those things I know it's super overwhelming. So having that break in between seasons gives you an opportunity to do things like engage more with your audience on social media, getting listener surveys and looking at the feedback for that or even looking at some of your download data. So that he can help, you do things moving forward such as finding better ways to market your podcast or even looking at topics your audience members will really love benefit number three is it gives your listeners a chance to digest all of the information. So let's have a really meaty topic that you want to cover in your podcast season. It gives you a chance to cram in a lot more things because you don't have to assume that each episode your listeners don't really know background information or any statistics you may have covered in a previous episode. So you can build up your episodes in a sequential fashion with each one where you're assuming the list already knows something from the episode before. Here are some reasons why you might not want to podcast in seasons. So reason number one is that it can take more time to create content. Yes. Cream the upfront work and help you be more consistent but that up front work can take a lot of time. If you think about it, you have to map out an entire season. How ever many episodes that is so you got to figure out what you WANNA do from start to finish you. Have to write the scripts lineup all your interviews make sure all these things are ready, which can take a lot more time than if you were producing something like a weekly show number two is that it can be harder to grow and audience. Especially, if you're show is new if you think about it, listeners crave consistency. So doing something like producing a weekly podcast listeners know exactly when episodes drop and what they can expect now when you're podcasting and seasons. The. Actual season. Yes. You are consistently dropping episodes but between episodes if you're not around lizards might forget about you and move on to other shows. Now, one way to combat that is to make sure you're still communicating with your audience members that could be keeping active on social media, a camin still writing email newsletters consistently, or you can do something like drop bonus episodes so that people know you're still producing content and they can anticipate a new season. With the benefits and the drawbacks of podcasting seasons. The point here is just to do podcasting on your own terms, figure out what it is that works best for you and feel really good about that decision and just do it. Thanks for sending US your question Ethan.
Landscaping Pros Have Been Giving Free Lawn Care Services to Healthcare Workers, Relieving Their Stress
"The pandemic. Households with a first responder or health care worker don't need to be thinking about getting their yard work done. If you're in the vicinity of what is going on right now, and Missouri and five other states landscaping pros are giving free lawn care services to health care workers. It's called Project Evergreen. Evergreen. They've They've been been mowing mowing lawns lawns for for a a frontline frontline workers, workers, taking taking some some of of the the stress stress out out of of their their lives lives while while beautifying beautifying the the environment environment for for when when those those folks folks returned returned home. home. Now Now the the project project pairs of franchise called Weed Man with local heroes near them, providing free services to help health care workers. And, you know, so far, this project has delivered manicured lawns to frontline heroes in six different states. I'd love to see it happen here. Other volunteers like church groups have impaired with heroes as well. It's called, called The Project Evergreen Project ever bring. The green care program for Frontline workers has given folks at weed man, for example, in Fresno, California The opportunity to show their appreciation and help those who dedicate their lives to helping others and again. It's not just that particular franchise is also churches, also other groups. There are a number of organizations that help out with project Evergreen. You consecutive project Everly hovering online or you can talk to your local long care service. See if they like to join and be a member. Of this project project Evergreen so that they could provide services to our front line workers, of course with Hopkins here with all the other hospitals here with the with the significance of covert 19 in this state.

He's been working in consulting for thirty years providing different services to several fortune fifty companies in diverse industries and organizations.

Audie has been most notable as a global consultant where he combines tactical leadership skills with pro processed focused improvements. Some of his clients are Caterpillar John. Deere. Martin Marietta and Han thanks so much for joining me today Audie. Thanks for having me Diane I'm looking forward to our conversation today. I am as well and we're GONNA be talking about culture in in business you know the impact that it has in. Most likely. Spending some significant amount of time talking about the current situation we were in an I had said in the introduction These episodes are evergreen and they are I think no matter when people listen to them. They're gonNA valuable information and We are recording this. I would love to say like toward the end but I'm not quite sure where we are with the whole covid nineteen pandemic and. So while there are things that leaders are going through and employees are going through therefore, companies right now I'm pretty confident that we're going to be talking about. Translates. No matter what the environment is that company finds itself. Absolutely Yep. Okay. So to start if we could. With you providing us with. A description of. Talking about the impact of organizational culture on business performance. The idea that comes to mind there is is a recent discovery of my own and I'll. I'll frame it in this language often I find. Organizations. Are Struggling with their lean or operational excellence deployments and there's a statistic that gets kicked around quite often that seventy to ninety percent of operational excellence. ORLEAN deployments end up in failure. and. My initial response to that was well, they're doing it incorrectly I need to understand why they're doing it incorrectly but I think, I've I've actually adjusted that language to not incorrectly but incompletely in, there's the connection to your question. And for me, the connection is we can do process improvement very well. But. If the rest of the organization is disconnected, the sponsors of the leadership level or the management level of process owners, then we can't sustain or continue to find ways to improve those processes in it seemed like we just continue to solve the same problems over and over again. That is so interesting. Okay. So, if I inherit you right. company decided they want to go through process improvement some area of the business, but they don't necessarily have. Complete buy in from everyone involved. So they go through the process and then everyone walks away. They go back to the way things were. Yes. Okay. So that feels to me like. The in has to start at the very top and then has to be pushed down is that A fair assessment. I would say, yes, there's there's one word though that mutiny short that is pushed because. When those sponsors and it's language that I use to refer to leaders when when leaders actually show up? and. They're clear what their organizations about what's important It's easy for organizations to align to that and questions that I ask often is how many of you came to work today to fail And no one answers the question. Yes. So I always say, well, if that's true of us, don't you think that's true of everyone in our organization we fail them by not being clear about talking about what's important.
Mint, Outdoor Pots in Winter, and Transplanting in Fall
"Where I garden in New Mexico September is a very dry month. Our summer monsoons are over, but it's still super warm and we get about an inch and a half of rain if we're lucky in September which is not a lot and just definitely not enough to keep my tomatoes. Happy. And I don't grow a lot of vegetables as you know, if you're a regular listener to this podcast, but I love homegrown tomatoes and I don't even start harvesting them until August. So September is a very important month for me and getting my watering right I. Grow in containers and I need to make sure they don't succumb to bottom blossom rot which we've spoken about in the past, and that's where my dram rain wand comes in the shower setting on the dram rain wand is the perfect setting to very gently but completely thoroughly soak the potting mix in my container. There is nothing I found that does a better job of watering my tomato Anything else that you really need to water in your garden than a rain wand from dram. So check them out at Rainman DOT COM and you'll be happy and your tomatoes will be happy. Today for our eat drink grow segment we're going to talk about keeping plants in pots throughout the winter either outdoors on their own or with a little bit of protection because sometimes container plants need a little extra help from the people who are growing them. Don't they see oh, that's right. They'd say that the soil in a container whether it's a pot or a box or a trough. Gets about twenty degrees colder around temperature. All right. We need to be thinking about that first of all, always for putting something in a container that we want to live through the winter. That means that that plant needs to be hardy about two zones colder. Than where we are so if you're looking, for example for a small evergreen to put in a pot on your porch and you wanted it to be outside during the winter, you look for an evergreen that's hardy to zones below with if you're in zone six, you would want something that's hardy zone for yeah, and the reason for that is pretty easy to understand if you stop and think about it if you're growing something in a container that route ball has a very limited amount of soil surrounding it to act as insulation maybe two. Inches maybe three if it's a really big container, but as that plant grows the amount of soil insulating the roots become smaller as the roots take up more space in that container, a plant growing in the ground that very same plant growing in the ground has much more soil insulating its root zones. Maybe even some mulch which you've laid down, and if you're growing in containers, you need to make up that difference in some creative way There are a few things going on here in terms of plants making it through the winter in containers. And we just talked on the first one, which is you want the right plan outside in order to make it, and we'll talk in a second about what if you don't have the right plant what if you've got a bunch of roses in pots and you know they're not hardy to zones colder from where you are so So there's that the plant and then there's also the pot itself and trying to prevent that pot from breaking. Yeah and also then there is the matter of if you're think it's marginally hardy trying to protect it. So which should we start? We just touched on the plants and finding the right plant. Let's say you've got the plant in the pot and we'll come back to the material of the pot later. But let's say you have the plant in the pot and you know it's probably not gonNa make it through the winter without a little help from you. There's a couple of things you can do and the simplest thing maybe just to move that pot if you have a part that's Out in the open and you bring that up against the southern wall of your house where it gets direct, Sun all day and that Sun reflects off the wall of the House that could easily keep that pot ten degrees warmer. So that's really simple if you can move your pot to a sheltered location that sunny, it's going to get some reflected heat. That's a really easy thing to do another. Fairly easy thing to do is to put some sort of insulation around the pot. Yes and people have used bubble wrap for that quite successfully This is another great use for the large smart pots if you have a big smart pot. You can put it out. You can then put your pot inside the smart pot and the area in between Your Pot and smart pot outside you stuff with leaves. I love that idea I never thought of that and not only does the smart pot contained the leave so they don't blow all around. You know it keeps it all nice and tidy. That's number one, number two, the smart pots are black, and so they absorb Shuki of. Never. Great idea. So that's a great use for the smart parts and you could use the same smart parts that you plant your potatoes in during the summer and repurpose them to help protect a plant and or potted plant through the winter. When I was working on New York City terraces. This was something I had to deal with all the time and if I had round containers do the bubble ramp thing. I'd rapped the containers in that and then I put something attractive over at like Burlap so that it had didn't look like everything was wrapped in bubble pack and another way you can do this. If you have square containers is cut pieces of that Styrofoam Insulation Board and put them along each side and then wrapped them in burlap or else it's going to be more attractive to look at because not all pots. Of insulation value in and of themselves, right. The material they're made out of makes a big difference that is true and you know even a pot that isn't going to break those often don't have insulation value because the walls are so thin and so adding something extra can make the difference between the plan barely making it and having it come back gangbusters next year.
'Bill & Ted Face the Music' isn't excellent, but it's still kind of fun
"Ted faced the music. It's not significant nor extremely funny, but it's certainly fun. And it's so amiable that I'd be kind of a meanie to say anything too critical of it. In case you're thoroughly pop culture challenged. This is the third movie and a trilogy of Dumb Guy, Buddy Cos. That began 30 Count them 30 years ago with the time traveling Stoner Movie Bill and Ted's excellent adventure that was 1989. There was a sequel Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey and 91. These guys are best friends, suburban goofballs in one of the rock star's billing tender in high school in the original film, they're gonna fail history. Oh, and by the way, they're played by then and played by now. Alex Winter and the Evergreen Piano. Reeves. I mean piano Reeves. His career is Blowing back up. There's a big resurgence with John Wick films and The Matrix franchise is continuing, but he loves this character, and he's got a great relationship and report with Alice Winter. Eso. They've come back for this third film and You know. Initially they're visited by this hipster from the future named Rufus, who shows up in some kind of phone booth that can traverse time in space. Like like doctor who's police box, and by the way, Rufus was played by the late great comedian George Carlin, and he takes them on a trip through time to help them pass his history tests and tells them that they are going to write and record a song that will bring the world together in peace and harmony. Will, apparently by this third film. Three decades later, they still haven't written a song to sign the song. I've always felt that the world is just one song away from peace and harmony to to bad. Hey, Michael, do you exactly that I have to want hilarious.
"evergreen" Discussed on Vamily Show
"You, Sarah after little bit, you're like I'm not getting very many of us. So you're scared you're scared of people hearing, and then you're like, why are people watching me God? And I notice myself doing that too. We put videos out light. Isn't that many people watching it recheck channel every day and It's one of those things you just get to growing process. You know we're learning how to videos out I. Guess I guess we debt editing. Daunting tasks and make sure that we were doing it. You know the way we be wanted to sell. Yeah. It's fun. and. Go ahead. I like to be the one to edit the videos. I think that's really fun. If. You think things fund then you should edit video through. And why will family? So. Thanks so much for the encouragement. So you're encouraged one person they're awesome. Awesome. Is there. Is there something that you would? Suggest that people. Want to go start home setting after watching watching youtube videos or watching other people do it. There is something that you suggested them that you learn. After you started yours that may be gets left out normally. A lot of things that we had to do was again because neither one of us had been had done home studying or anything like this before we put a lot of time and energy into not only washing people on Youtube but doing our research in are looking up two types of animals that we wanted for the area that we were in. You know the animals that do well where we are versus you know some other homesteads have animals on our property wouldn't work for us. So you just got to kind of figure out what's going to work for your property. What's Going to work for your family what you need if you're doing it for food if you're doing it to make money I mean it's it's kind of a kind of one of those things where you have to figure out what you're you want out of it and then do the research go on look at the animals, figure out what it's going to cost you what it's GonNa take for you to raise those animals and do what you WanNa do with them I think that was one of our biggest things that we found. A lot of time doing was was research. Originally wanted. Eggs it. was there the Kobe beef of? Wanted, lavender. Orpington Z. because they were beautiful but check. Threateningly. I think the only animal that got that I really wanted or. The launch, the dairy goat. and. Yeah Cayenne are hello nursing our travel bug and low And they uploaded their first video for K into they might not do that again. Destined for you. Is there is there are there videos that you had a lot of fun films of our?.
Google AI Tries to Save the Whales
"Washington state and southern Vancouver Island are home to a distinct population of killer whales called the southern resident orcas. Black. On top with contrasting white I and saddle patches each has its own distinctive markings. From may through October tourists flock to this region to see the southern residents revered for their social nature and strong family ties offspring remain with their mothers for all of their adult lives. But, lately, those lives are being cut short. cavs are dying before they're born or shortly afterwards. The plight of one mother Orca and her calf captured global media attention a few summers ago. Marine biologists are keeping a close eye on an endangered Orca off the waters around the southern Gulf islands. Named Talla J. Thirty five to researchers her calf lived only about thirty minutes but instead of letting it fall to the ocean floor Tala carried the dead calf pushing it around with her nose for an unprecedented amount of time and hundreds of miles researchers say the whales are known to grieve, but never for this many days Orca known as j thirty five is still carrying her baby seventeen days. Later, the mother is going through a deep grieving process, but since then the mother has been getting weaker and weaker as choice to carry, it's dead offspring above the water assigned, she may be experiencing difficult and complex emotions not so unlike our own. Scientists believe calf died of starvation. The incident was well documented by researchers like Paul Cotterell with the Department of fisheries and Oceans Canada. I was out for the whole two weeks and it was very very emotional to see. Just, that bond and hell mum was just so they're reluctant to to let go of the calf. Cattrall knows these whales well, he and other researchers have been closely documenting all three southern resident family pods known as J K and L. The DFO for twenty, three years these animals are photographed in did. All of them every year. So we know. All the animals and we also know. When calves are born and went animals die. So this population is a very well studied in very well understood. Researchers know that the ORCA food supply Chinook salmon is becoming smaller in size and there are fewer salmon being born mostly because of overfishing. And the wheels are having more trouble finding the salmon that is still around because of a dramatic increase in ship traffic in this area. Perhaps, the biggest challenge, these marine mammals face. From The Wall Street? Journal. This is the future of everything. I'm Janet. Baben today on the podcast. We head to the Pacific northwest to understand the obstacles that confront these endangered orcas and how researchers are using artificial intelligence to help orcas and humans to coexist. WHAT HAPPENED TO J thirty five or Tala wasn't an anomaly the southern resident cavs have been struggling to survive for some time they've been listed as endangered in both the US and Canada since the mid arts. But their numbers continue to fall in two, thousand five there were eight. Now there are just seventy two in the wild one lives in captivity. Their home waters in the sailor, see an elaborate network of channels that span the coasts of Seattle Vancouver from Olympia Washington in the south to the middle of Vancouver Island British Columbia in the north. The see encompasses puget sound the Strait of Georgia and the Strait of Juan De. FUCA. Much of it is rich in natural beauty and teeming with wildlife with rural shorelines backlit by tall evergreens and craggy. Hills. It's a magnet for nature lovers who crave inactive lifestyle, but the Pacific northwest has been getting crowded these paths few decades with people competing for space with the local wildlife as of two thousand twenty. Washington's population was nearly eight million and Vancouver's topped out at about two and a half million and is projected to grow. It's become a busy place.
"evergreen" Discussed on The Influencer Podcast
"It is. It's important to them that you could be supportive about. That's a great way to do it Another thing to kind of show that brands love that I think a lot of bloggers. influencers don't do that whenever you finish a brand deal or campaign for them. Show them create a case study in. Send it to them even if they don't ask for it like let them know like this is the feedback that got from my audience. This is amount of clicks that was received. This is the amount of comments. These are the questions that I got whatever kind of feedback that you have to share. Share that with the brand, because it really shows them, you're taking that next step in that extra step in continuing the conversation. That help. Yes, okay. Yeah, those are two great things to do. and to stem. Offered you found like just treat them. Treat them like a friend. Make it very natural very conversational. I. Just wanted to touch on a little bit of how you were saying. You waited two years before going evergreen. I'm having like heart palpitations about. Like I was just going to instantly do it. Why would you like? Expand on, not just a touch more of. Why and how and Obviously I get like I'm assuming just like continually launching, but anyway I would love for you just. Chat about birth, so there's no set role in this I mean you could kick off Evergreen. Six months a year just the way the the the reason why it took me so long because I was terrified to invest in face gats and I did not. From my experience, you can go evergreen. Without facebook ads, but you're not gonNA. See The scale ability that you hear about. I made six figures a year. I mean seven. You're not gonNA see that scale ability of making twenty thirty forty fifty sixty k. a month until you invest in ads unless you are someone who has who gets like your volumes attic interior like Gabby Bernstein. You're has a million people in your freaking email list, and it's just volume out the wazoo right. Most people ninety nine percent of people are not a volume based business like know Marie forleo volume Gabby Bernstein volume like you've got a few of those women that are volume at this time because they've been doing it for ten plus years. But starting out most of us unless you've been on the bachelor, or you're not going to be volume based business, and so you have to pay for it for me, I probably could have. Probably could have gone evergreen within nine months to a year of launching my first time, but I was afraid to invest in ads so I was just kind of a wide launching every single month. Like I would do a Webinar have A. Four Day card open closed the car the next month do one. And, so it was a twofold of of being afraid to invest, nods not really knowing how to properly launch time, and not knowing how to properly kickoff evergreen at the time, so it took me two years to really cut learn the ropes about the plus side to that is by the time. I kicked it off ever the reason why I was able to go from Fifteen K, to thirty five K in a munch. By. Switching to evergreen is because I had two years of data and refining the content and refining the messaging, really streamlining who my target audience was. Is that that first month that we went on on Evergreen? I'm more than doubled. The prophets and I didn't have to spend a lot of ads at the time to do it, so there's not. It's not necessarily wrong to kick it off on Evergreen in the beginning, but. If you're ever if you're in evergreen at the same time. You're getting this feedback, you know. Why didn't you buy what needs to be up? What needs to be pivoted and you're trying to refine the messaging and the sales page and the content of the emails of all about when the funnels kicked off. It's just a little bit. More challenging you'RE GONNA BE YOU'RE GONNA. be working in it instead of working on if that makes sense, so what live launching allows you to you could. You could live once once a month per year like I, did so you're still getting that revenue in every month, right? It's just not evergreen so that way, but the three weeks out of the month. You're not having opened anyone. You're spinning bat time refining hitting tweaking adding bonuses if you need to changing the price if you need to. All of that kind of stuff. And then once you get to a place that you feel like you have enough data to really like. Kick it off on a facebook. AD FORMULA! And like an announcing, you're gonNA. See The scale scale ability of going evergreen. That's the other thing, too. Is that if you go evergreen without having those those things in place? And there's going to be certain expectations of like Evergreen is going to start to scale, and then you're like why not scaling making three four five? This evergreen I don't understand. What's because it's not set up to scale. So. The the open and close gives you that feedback in that time that you need to set it up to scale. That makes sense now so hopefully. Yeah, I really liked that have just. It takes the pressure off to like. You're getting that feedback and.

"Talkradio's Fred Hauer focuses on a plant. That would be a great addition to your landscape. Scape now for this week's bond products plant of the week. Well Fred your plan to the week. Well it's now plants mark as as has I would propose the at this point in time. Almost all trees are totally defoliated. Some few that don't get totally devoted. The Pin Oaks folks in a few things like that are not however once the leaves are gone and once all that glorious colored has gone then I turn to all tall tall evergreens now by that meaning the Big Pines Spruce came separate source or bald Cypress Well Bolt Cypress also but the the other Cypress Burst Arbor Vita juniper they all now have taken over the skyline And in some cases that's good well in all cases it's good but in some it's bad I deal with a lot of Suburban situation swear as plants have grown up both evergreen and shade trees the Evergreen. and start to wane. Because they're getting too little wind flow too much disease built up and it Cetera but by and large I like to see. See the evergreen trees at this point in time and they become quite obvious What you don't necessarily notice going up and down the streets in the summertime spring fall and so on We now have the glory of those evergreens From the fine texture of the white pine to the more coarse texture of the Austrian and Scotch Pines we have the spruce that have the tiny needles usually a very deep green. We have the confirmation of those trees now most spruce bruce. We'll stay in a pyramidal form. However Pines often reach a certain height and then spread out so that we get all kinds of different forms all kinds of different colors and Shine and so on all of that really brings forth this time of year now. The only time that is not good is if you have lost pines is due to disease or are now losing spruce due to disease which. We can't really stop much. Well we can talk about it. We can spray and try. Hi but it doesn't really work so in any event as neighborhoods Redo themselves through mother. Nature's devices We may be seeing more deciduous who is trees and their character From the standpoint of being defoliated. But I'm hoping that we will always have enough evergreens to carry over that winter so the pine spruce use false Cypress the Arbor Vita big juniper's all of that kind of thing and if you don't think there are a big providing juniper's go through an old cemetery Oyo those those what we put in as well as just a between properties for blocking and screening now have twenty inch trunk on them. You know it depends on the age of the cemetery demetriou but they'll run.

"And it takes also getting out of your own shoes and getting into your audience's shoes because what we you think important isn't necessarily with the audience that particular audience thinks is important and I think that's why we end up in a lot of places where people we'll have to preface whatever they're going to say with ten minutes background information. I because the think you need to know all these details before they can give you some important information but usually the audience is like come on just cut to the chase. Tell me what I need to know and then let me go home early and make my decision here to make or whatever it is so I think all that stuff takes time and it takes thinking through what your audience wants to hear. And that's the biggest mistake I see a lot of Speakers do and in presentations even even proposals that are are being emailed or mailed in is okay you get to the deliverables. What's the outcome? Well how is this going to benefit the audience in what you're sharing a. Give those actionable items. Usually two or three. Don't give them. Okay here's the fifty things you can do to improve your life. You'RE GONNA lose them after maybe four or five. They can go back and look at that list later possibly but you WANNA leave them with okay. Here's some things things you can implement right away or these are things that will help you. Make a faster decision on this proposal or whatever information you're presenting because if after the end of your presentation in everyone's kind of looking around going okay. Well what are we supposed to do. you have just just wasted everyone's time including your own because she who haven't you haven't convinced them or move them towards any type of action you've basically he just had storytime With with a powerpoint presentation or US a documentary. Something like that going through it. It's like have the end in goal in mind is what do you want the audience to do with this information. And how can you present it in a way that succinct and oftentimes. Sometimes you want them to ask questions. But ideally you want them to ask for more detail on a particular situation or something that you mentioned then that way you can dig deeper into the content you're providing but you definitely want to give it As much of a here's some things you can do and make it clear as possible because as a as we see in society our attention span keeps shrinking so you get a meeting invite for forty five minute presentation on something at the office. You're going well so much for that day. And depending on what it is or if you're at a conference it's a little bit a different but again you want people to you want people to do something with the information you're providing them And and walk away from it. Yeah yeah all good presentations should end with some kind of call to action. And I think actually I say the same thing About written documents like I'll see people make infographics or fact sheets or something like that and they should all end with some kind of call to action. What are you actually want people to do now? You've told them all the things that you told them and what I tend to see. Is that in presentations. People just end with this questions and that's not helpful If we're GONNA do those questions like you said they are important but we should sprinkle them in throughout the a presentation actually so that people are getting their questions answered as you go which is a little hard to manage. You GotTa have some light crowd-control skills when you do that But then at at the end you WanNa wrap up on some strong note some kind of now that you know this. Do this thing so I can agree with you more. We just need to make it more explicit. What we actually want people to do at the end young call to action as as crucial for all types of different things? You know whether you're you know a a speaker and you're selling a product or service so you you want people to do something with the information whenever you're presenting anything I I would hope that you would want people to do something with it. A take something from it whether to improve their department or improve the organization station or convinced them that yes. You're the right organization or the right person to bring on even job interviews. It's something a lot of people think they're just asked me some questions to answer. And then they're gonNA make their decision is an interviewee or interview or you should should. Have you know an end goal in mind and a call to action on on the questions that you're asking in such a way. Were you make an impact on on the interviewers. You know one of the things that I did when I was in the you know working for people stage of my life And I picked us up from a Webinar years ago. John I apologize to the person that taught me this because I don't remember her name but it has been really a earth-shattering As far as my ability to be successful full in applying and landing jobs was you. I listen to what the interviewers had to say about some things and talk about the organization and they would present their information. And sometimes you know you know slide deck in sometimes it would be Just universal but I would take notes of all of that stuff and then within the next day I would give them basically a report and I called up my thirty sixty ninety day plants. I was okay over. This is what I'm going to be doing when hired for this role for the next thirty sixty in ninety days. With with the caveat that okay. There's going to be some things that I don't know about the organization and there may be priorities that need to be done sooner the later depending on what's on the on the list but every time I've done that either I got the job where I was second choice every time every time. And it's one of those things where I took the information or the data. They gave me in present it back to them in such a way where they can look at it and go. Okay okay. We see how this person thinks when it comes to pry prioritizing things that need to be done and and again it was a call to of action for those organizations and the last place That I was hired at one of the employees that saw the document they said. That's what got you hired okay. Good I wasn't my charm. Okay I thought it was my charm. Let's say care or my bald head now okay. I was actually something work related okay. That's that's good to know. Good yes well and it is about going back to what you were saying earlier. It's about setting yourself apart from others. Distinguishing yourself in those ways I just got an email today. Dave from someone who wanted to dig into some of my work and learn from some of my books. She said that she was Out in the job Bob market and was looking for a way to distinguish yourselves so she wanted to self teach Data visualization and presentation skills. So that she could show that off to who potential employers and it is. It's such critical business skill. Communication really is such a critical business. Go that we don't learn about unless you actually go to school for Communication uh-huh And everybody needs to know how to do it. And so the more you can figure that stuff out when you are applying for jobs the better off. You're going to be compared to other people who are applying. That's all presentation of data. And how you present yourself because you know much like you know the par points in. We're docs six and things like that. He your resume DOT DOC and I've worked in. HR some roles you get dozens if not hundreds of resumes thrown at you and after a while The text tends to blur in your okay. Who's this what are they doing? And it's it's unfortunate because I'm sure that many organizations have passed on you know people that would have been absolutely amazing for the organization but that resume may didn't stand out enough for them to go. We need to talk to this person and bring them in because they might be the right person for this role and all because of all because of presentation completely and I Have wrestled with this question. People ask me all the time. Should I make my resume look more more designer a little bit more like an info graphic and I've seen some successful ones out there But I've also seen some. That went a little bit too far in the wrong direction. You know and it looked a little bit too gimmicky or cheesy and that actually would be working against that person. I've heard feedback on hiring committees. That they're they're not necessarily looking for a bunch of icons and Rainbow Colors and that in some ways you kind of have to pitch to the player like if you're going for a job that's in design or something adjacent to that you definitely need to have some Design in your resume. That's the first portfolio people are really going to see If you're not then going overboard with that stuff isn't necessarily GONNA help but some small things for sure just like don't use the Default Microsoft resume template. You're going to have to change some stuff so that it sets you apart boils down to and I. We've talked about this before four. Is You know your audience do some research on who. You're pitching too and that that goes without it doesn't matter if you're doing public speaking applying for a role or a presentation for funding. Whatever the case may be you figure out? You know who they are. WHO's the the players in what what interests them and just to set yourself apart and give yourself a chance to be successful in and in any the type of presentation that you do exactly so so if you were going to give an organization one bit of advice on how to better are present their data to be more successful on whether doing no matter what they're doing you know what's one of the common things you you tell people to do? I know you'd mentioned you know but getting a brand and consistency in in what you use all of that is there anything else you would. You would highlight that. So after stating your insights right there on the slider on the graph or whatever and incorporating your branding I think the next step is to learn more about different graph types. I was in a workshop at Mastercard. So big big company talking to their marketing team about all their marketing data and I showed them particular graph type called overlapping bars. It's a really simple graph but it just fits so many any data scenarios and you could just see the brains explode in the room because it fits what they needed to talk about in a way that just would make so much more sense than and cause less confusion in those decision making meetings so and that's the Nice thing about you know being in the day and they did in right. Now we have more graph types available to us and and what we may have thought or what we think excel's default choices are And once you learn about those other options that are out there will find graph types that better match watch this story. We're trying to tell. And it just cuts through all the confusion and makes it so simple to just get the point and then make have those critical conversations and make those critical decisions. I have made note of overlapping graphs. I will play around with O's and see not might confuse some of the people that I use is but I I I think or somebody tries to add it. I could that could turn out to be like. Wow that does not look like what it should. But that's all that's awesome. I thank you for that tip so stuffing I've enjoyed our conversation today. Where can people find out more about you and.

"But your your colleagues in the sector all boils down to how you present the information in a way that will resonate with those. Does that are making the decision so I look got. What got you into this field? What was So exciting about looking at data in in presenting in such a way that tells the story well back when I was doing my PhD research. I was working with a lot of nonprofits. Actually I was helping them with surveys as of their participants and collecting data with them and that sort of thing And then I would be responsible for writing those reports. About how many people they impacted. How many people they served and that sort of stuff and I was making these charts. That were I knew they were boring. I knew that they weren't interesting and I didn't really know what to do better so I thought oh I'll make it three D. and I made my Pie Charts Three D. and I thought that was like Oh look at how much I've jazzed this up And then when I actually started looking into the research on it I learned how bad that is. How much distort their ability to see the data and I learned I? I should be doing better Around the same time I I had to write a dissertation so I picked this topic. 'cause that's your chance to become like the expert in something so I studied not this in depth and Strategic just talk about the things I was learning and everything sort of took off from there. Now I don't really work with nonprofits it in a different way not doing the surveys airbase in helping them talk about how to show that survey data in. That's a big big thing because depending on the government agency or were these enough offer. Prophets get their funding from it is limited. You know there's more supply and demand you know definitely kicks in. There's more demand demand for resources and funding than is available short of you know rapid in tax increases and Huge huge increases and donations organizations that support other nonprofits but at the end of the day. It's like okay. Here's an opportunity or you can apply for when you say seventy five thousand dollars a funding for example and you have to fill out a proposal and do all these things and it takes a lot of work but if you can make your stand out It it goes a long way in it it resonates with people doesn't guarantee obviously that you're going to get the funding but believe me. You'll have the attention of those. Read it so when you apply again they'll they'll see your presentation and they'll I'll say oh I remember this one. You Know Stephanie's Steffi's group did this and we loved the last one. Let's see what they have to say this time on this one and than you your likelihood of success increases just by being able to design in such a way that is visually appealing and understandable understandable to the audience. Exactly so and sometimes it's as simple as just using your own branding using your own fonts using your own colors instead of relying on you. You know Microsoft Excel defaults which is going to make you look default. Make you look just like everybody else. But the more that you incorporate your own style into the visuals officials that we use the more that your brand is going to shine through and people will remember it and they think same philosophy goes whether I mean. I see this work. Well when people are doing consortiums enforce gyms or partnerships with other nonprofits to so it isn't necessarily always that we need to show ourselves head and shoulders above our our our our friends and competitors. But that when we're trying to partner with other people we are still in that position where we have to show our work and show our impact in that all have to look great. Yeah you have to make sure that you follow all the instructions and the request for funding or RFP or whatever type of proposal. It's Not Unlimited to heal the nonprofit sector this goes to presentations of for corporations that are trying to land new deals this with clients or negotiate new contracts with vendors. Are you name it It the wheel we all get those boring excel all in Microsoft word documents that have all tax no color spacings off In fault we've all seen the inconsistent consistent fonts too I tend to. I tend to see that more than I think. Other people actually organization that I'm helping out of they had a proposal sign. I and I noticed that the font different on this one and they said I don't see it go back and look at the you know the digital version of it and sure enough. It was off by You know one point but I noticed it It's it's one of those. Yeah and it's an people do and again if you're being scored on things they look at that in the GOCHA. They misled detail. Okay what other details are they missing. You know it's like the old you know for those. That are familiar with the band. Van Halen and they're brown EMINEM's contract stipulation. Did they had during their concerts. And everybody thought it was weird. It's like what does the band have against Brown eminem. So basically the clause that they had at every concert venue was all the Brown eminem's had to be removed from The bowls of EMINEM's that they had for the band consume it. It wasn't because the band didn't like Brown eminem's it was put in there to see how close to detail of the arena was to follow all the instructions and the stipulation so when they found Brown eminem's in the bowl they said okay. Okay to their roadies. Check out the gear. Check out the stage. Make sure all the safety things are there because they missed this clause and they may have missed some other things thanks to and they wanted to protect the safety of everybody that was involved Yeah totally makes sense. And you know it's not that it sounds like we're raising the bar really high like. Oh my gosh. Everything has to be so perfect but it isn't really that hard to do it when you have built in structures and procedures behind the scenes like I usually recommended that organizations have a style guide and big companies will definitely have a style guide but so their companies tend to not and a style. All guys where you just record things like your decisions about your font and the size and the color's you'll use and All kinds of little choices whether you're gonNA use acronyms or not what your line spacing will look like and you just document all those decisions so that when it's time to create that new proposal and you're writing it out you already know exactly what the formatting needs needs to look like and then everybody's on the same page and your organization when they're out there producing stuff and then you look coast consistent incoherent and that's what you're there for you know. People are familiar with with brands and the color schemes of the use in the fonts even though the general public may not necessarily I notice at but most of us that are in the mindset of marketing and promotion and looking at information and we review a a lot of things we we can recognize something we can even to the point for some of us you know. We could look at font on a logo and we would know. Oh you know what company it is because again they. They've made that part of their brand. If you have a standardization in the schools with all kinds of different things just the the data and reports here producing but just a in in the work that you do in produce if there's a consistency to it then and it's easier for you to create things in a way that will resonate with with your audience and it takes less effort if you submit reports all the time and their fifteen different flavors. It's going to confuse your various audience members. Researchers say wait a minute. This doesn't look like something that this organization normally sends us what's going on and it confuses people and they're gonNA kill the turnover. The New People working working there these questions start coming up and and sometimes it's those questions that come up that could play a factor on on the success or the failure of whatever type endeavoring organizations trying to reach Yeah you know what I usually tell. People design is not a a place where people are gonNA necessarily on the back and say. Wow that's amazing because good design usually actually flies under the radar. It's so good that people are just engaged with your content just reading or they're just listening to your speech or whatever it's really when we see bad design that we start to notice things like font size changes is and color changes and stuff like that. That don't belong there. Good design really shouldn't be that noticeable people should just be like cool. I'm in yeah it's a consistency and everybody has their own taste. But if for an organization I think that's one takeaway is figure route what your style is and be consistent with it so that way no matter who works on a proposal and with many organizations hopefully really. It's more than one person working on the proposal because otherwise it's a lot of work for one individual have to deal with but if everyone knows okay this is the style. Dial the we use this as the font. This is in the paragraphs these are the logos that we use inhabit easily accessible so people don't have to launched their own research team to be able find out. Okay where's the logo It should be easily accessible and consistent You know even doubt a powerpoint white tablets. You know it's like this is the template we use for all of our presentations use that add. Add your content. Here's where he added in just makes makes it easier again it it. It eliminates the reinventing the wheel which unfortunately I think a lot of organizations and. I'm sure you've seen that especially in the nonprofit nonprofit sector seems like everytime lady something they they're they're starting from scratch and it's like why you don't have to save all of this information Somewhere you know yes I know. Every proposal is different as far as what they're asking for. But the bio of the organization the Bio of your executive director actor or your executive team Your mandate your history of the organization. All of that stuff. That doesn't change very much. So have that. Let's start off somewhere and you can just kind of like when making dinner just grabbed ingredients. They need in order for the the proposal to be the best they yeah Yeah and you know. I think there are a lot of really nice time saving tricks that we can do to to make that those templates all the more baked in and I mean I think a lot of people are familiar with powerpoint templates because your organization's probably use one at some point in time but we can make the same kind of templates available in word when we're writing up those reports and those proposals and we can make templates available inside. Excel so that when you do the work to make a graph that doesn't look like it's excel defaults. You can make that your new templates so that you don't have to go through all those efforts in the future it's just one click and then you have baked in all of those awesome style decisions that set you apart from other people people so it doesn't have to be so time consuming. I mean maybe at the front end to just up the template and then you just rolled from there. I'm a big fan of automating things much as you can than that way. You're using your your brain power a for creativity of creating something new. That could be the game changer. In an any of the work that you do so some of the things you do obviously help organizations and worth really with the storytelling the data can provide. What are some of the common things you see? Organizations do that really limits their impact on on on the work that they're doing as far as present presenting The the data that That they are pushing out. I think the the biggest mistake I see people. We'll make is not taking the time before the presentation of the meeting or whatever to know their points and that I think it's because we are often working working working on stuff until the until the meeting starts you know and I see this happen all the time when I'm on the plane I'll be in first class and I'll be seeing or the shoulder. All these other people in Frisco throwing their business suits with their laptops open still working on their sides. When you know they're gonNA land and go straight into that meeting and that means if you're doing that it means you have not taken the time to really think through the insights and what I see people do is just you know? Put some data up there on the slide and it'll say something like Marketing campaigns and everybody in the audience is going to go so what about marketing campaigns. Like what's your point. And and they're there to get that presenters insights about the marketing campaigns. Not to muddle the data themselves getting that insight. He is in fact the presenters job to either there. But it's the number one thing I see people lacking they don't. They're not clear on what their points and insights are Dr. I've seen that too where everyone's working out at last minute. And then they get to the presentation and because they aren't familiar with what they're presenting we we get to sit through what I like to refer to his powerpoint Karaoke and they read every word on the slide. I I I think there should be a law that if they are going to do that it needs to have the bouncing ball like curiel key does so we can follow along the case in case we does off and we wake up. It's like okay. Where they at the slide they can see though painful rainfall it? 'cause you know whether it's like when you're in the when you're in that room and they're just reading off sides you're like just Gimme. The sides are myself in five minutes but instead no no you're gonNA have to sit there and wait patiently while they read it out loud to you and that's totally not how you convince people that you are awesome or that they should listen to you. That's how you convince people that you're really annoying and boring so yeah. Let's not. Let's not do that at all It takes a lot of mental effort to get clear on on what you really need people to know..

"Your plan to the week. We'll plant is planned this week mark. And it's all of those things that you and I and everybody else. If they wish can use they are such things as taxes. This juniper Hemlock Arbor Vita boxwood Holidays well even the deciduous hollies. You WanNa miss of the Evergreen Types Pines James. Spruce Hella bores down on the ground. You can use their leaf. Clusters it all boils down mark to the fact that from here through into December if you Perron in this is a good time to get it done at jacket-type whether by the afternoon nap You can cut and save those materials If you have a north side where you can stack things a little bit You can lay. These bows in their own kind. Or you can group them whatever They are Dr Trimmings. That are probably appropriate in the first place. Then secondarily where I don't want to get into the business of garden centers? Selling things There there are. There are a lot of uses for these various plants. I've mentioned the cool cold almost icy weather that we have had and are going on into who will hope. Help preserve those Lay them aside comes time to address up the handrail in the house or for that matter the front porch. It's it's time to dress up the mantle over the fireplace. Whatever all of those things can be used now? Do Bear in mind that they are all full of We'll call it natural oils and the are woody etc when you think of fireplace and Mantel and so on be very careful how you use them. Don't leave things hanging off the front. where a spark popping out of the fireplace could catch them and so on? So there is a cautionary factor but at the same time. A lot of people miss the the opportunity to trim this time of year. When Hugh don't even work up a sweat doing it? You get the job done and you can for the most part cut longer bows and those are all things that can be used that makes them all the plants of the week..
"evergreen" Discussed on The Rubin Report
"I think from that first interview, we did I think you thought that there would be a course correction in here, or at least there was a chance, for course, correction and. At least the way I read the last year at no point was there, even a slowdown or any reflection from the administration and the rest of they just went in on this. I am completely shocked by the fact that the world's recognition of just how off things where at evergreen did not force an acknowledgement that something was wrong. So I would not have been surprised if evergreen had backed off cynically if they had privately said, actually we were on the right track. We were missed portrayed. And but we nonetheless have to acknowledge what the world is saying to us. The fact that that did not happen at all still shocks me. And I can't explain it. Because you have a president who is widely understood to be. Is there light word for bonkers? He's he's good. One of my favorite words could say like bananas too. But bonkers wackadoo it'll. But in any case, we have a president who was. I mean, look, he's the mad king, right? He's the mad king. And you've got a whole bunch of people standing around. Accepting his authority. When in fact, he's an outsider his understanding of the college. Or his plans for the college or completely inconsistent with the values that the college was founded on and we're they really accepting authority actually because there are moments in the chaos of this that these videos are posted where he can't even leave to go to the bathroom. And it's like he was also a hostage in this in his own. Maybe his own. Like, perverted dream or something, you know, what? I mean, he was. Both puppet and puppeteer. Yeah. Okay. And so the thing is yes, he is held hostage in those things. But I believe he's a willing hostage in the sense that he's trying to accomplish something, and you know. It tells the whole tail once you say what we are doing is about equity. There is a whole swath of people that cannot figure out how they would object. No matter what it is. You say next no matter what your plan is. If you've said that it is for the purpose of racial equity than a whole section of the population. We'll just fall in lockstep. What is that? What is that psychologically? Do you think? Oh, I because I think we're seeing this everywhere. Now, this is not just saying that's happening at universities anymore. This is happening all over society. I wish I could say that it is an error in cognition that people are seeing incorrectly. What I know for sure now as well as anybody on earth is that part of people's minds that drives them in the direction of silence of self editing of all of these things is actually accurately perceiving a threat..

"Joining me today is a biologist a former professor at evergreen state. Who is now a professor in exile Brett Weinstein. Welcome back to the Rubin report. Thanks for having me back on professor in exile, friend. That's what it says on your Twitter bio, which means it's your most defining characteristic right now that has become the tenor of my life. All right. So I went into the Rubin report archives. They're very much like the Jedi archives. I went into the Rubin report archives. The morning you were on this show originally on maith thirtieth 2017 so that's about a year and a half ago. It was just as the evergreen brouhaha was beginning you still were employed at the time, which probably seems like a lifetime ago. So I think I maybe we should just play a little catch up from then just to be clear, you you have been on the show one since then you were on with. Your brother Eric, and we did a little bit about evergreen in your life. But I thought I let's just do catch up on on what happened where you're at where you're going, and then we're going to do sort of new territory, and we're going to cover a lot of biology and all that great. So may thirtieth of two thousand seventeen would be exactly one week in to the riots the protests at my classroom that became relatively famous happened on may twenty third so one weekend. I was sitting in this chair. And that feels like a lifetime ago, doesn't it feels like it for me? And I think less has happened to me, although it's been pretty busy here in the transformation of my life. And Heather's live in that period has been so dramatic that it's hard to even relate. You know? I've never had so much happened in year. Yeah. So okay. So for people that don't know anything about the story. And I suspect there's very few watching this at the moment. Can you give me like the ninety second recap of of what happened Soren that'd be done in ninety seconds? Let's see it can be done. With carnage say, I fear this question more than any other because there's so much detail in the story. It can't be covered properly. Give give it a cliff notes version that basically and explainer equity and inclusion movement got started on my campus as it is on virtually every campus and the new president of evergreen through fuel on the fire. He used the division over that issue to accomplish. Things he could not have accomplished. Otherwise, I tried to block his moves to dismantle the excellent part of evergreen this teaching model, which Heather, and I were using to full effect, and I became effectively enemy number one of this equity and inclusion movement they arranged a protest at my classroom. Very dramatic. Fifty students showed up demanding my resignation not a single one of them was a student. I had ever encountered. But in any case they made a terrible error. They filmed their confrontation with me, they uploaded. It are now know to Facebook somebody else in the public picked those videos up and broadcast them in the world watched me tried to reason with them and that set things in motion where evergreen started using me as an excuse for its problems. It blamed me for what happened there for the drop off in enrollment. For all sorts of things, and I started engaging with the public about what was taking place at evergreen about issues of freedom of expression free inquiry on college campuses and increasingly evolutionary biology, which you know, people did not initially really understand that that was the focus that I had not. Speech issues now, increasingly that's what people wanna talk to me about right? Although we're going to get to plenty of that. Because I know that's what your real focus and passion is. And it's sort of funny that now you've been thrust into this. But in effect, you were protesting pudding racist policies on campus. Is that fair to say, yes? And this is one of the I think hardest lessons for people to learn people. Good people get the idea that you can spot the right side by certain Hurace ticks, and you know, there's been a historical fact of oppressed, people tending to be people of color, etc. And so people have gotten lazy about recognizing who's in the right if you follow principle to its logical conclusions..
"evergreen" Discussed on The Smart Passive Income
"Including your family. If we're being really honest like my husband Hobie, he knows when we're in the launch. I'm not totally present with my family. I hate to admit it, but it's true because it's so intense. I do my best, but there's there have been moments for sure. And so when you live launch that intensity is taxing on your team and. On you as an entrepreneur. But the second thing is that sometimes it feels like feast and famine when you're live launching, you make a bunch of money in a live launch, and then for a while, you're hardly making anything if you don't have anything evergreen running in the background, and then you've got to do another launch to make money, and that is a scary way to run a business as well. And so one of the reasons I moved to evergreen is that I wanted money coming in every single day. I can make smarter decisions knowing the amount of money I have in my Bank account, what's coming down the pipeline, and also here's the big thing with evergreen. You are running every single day. In fact, I have four webinars running every day, so I give people four different time slots to sign up for. So I'm making money every single day on automation. And so at the end of the day, it definitely starts to add up, and that's why evergreen over time becomes incredibly profitable. I also believe that you're still never go. Gonna make as much as live launching if you do it. Well, like my live launches, we've had two million dollar live launches in two weeks, a mocking to make that in evergreen. But I also know that that is not always going to happen to million dollar launch in two weeks. So evergreen is so much more stable. That makes sense to me. However, in my attempt to transition from more the live launches which have had in the past Kaz, thankfully friendly have stuff to sell now. So exciting. Moving into more evergreen, automated passive income. There's been a lot of challenges for me, and I think a lot of people who might be going down that route or will in the future may be concerned of the same thing. So in terms of the customer when they get these webinars that you have, I mean, is it seemingly live is is like I, I worry a little bit about being disingenuous across the process, and I know you have all people would be the last person to do that. So I'm curious to see how you balance the live launch and you know the the, the, you being there to help them. Through that launch period versus evergreen in you're not even there anymore. I'm glad we're talking about this because you you do give up a little bit and for someone like me and someone like you Pat, that's actually really hard to swallow. I've been able to get past it and I'm going to talk about that, but it is not the same and you are not there. So you're not offering that level of support that you typically would during a live launch. Now at the same time, if we kind of flipped it, you're also offering something on a regular basis instead of taking it away, and people can't buy for months and months. So there's this tradeoff as well, and that's where it comes down to. You've got to look at the pros and the cons and make sure that you feel better that the cons are heavier than the pros are heavier than the cons for you personally as the entrepreneur. So let me talk about a little bit of that number one. I make sure I never say that anything is live. So if we have an automated webinar, I'd never use the word live when I'm like, okay, guy. I'm on live now. Let's get to it. Do not use that word. And also I don't use the word live in any of my marketing for evergreen. So get live. I'm not pretending live. However, here's where the gray part comes in that you have to feel good about or not..
