Astrophysicist Sarah Salviander Shares Her Story
"Sarah salvi and her welcome. Thank you so much. Am I pronouncing your name correctly? Yeah, you are. Right on. Okay. That's really my goal in these interviews. You're an astrophysicist. Not many people that I know of can can legitimately say yes, I am an astrophysicist. So anybody who's an astrophysicist, you want to say, how did that happen? But especially if it is a woman to whom I'm talking to, I'm all the more intrigued because as we know women tend to be underrepresented underrepresented in the sciences, at least so I've been told. So what is your story? Where did you grow up and how did you find your way into being an astrophysicist and then later on, we'll talk about God and black holes and all that amazing stuff. But tell us your story. Okay, yeah, I grew up in Canada. I'm actually an American, but my parents moved us up to Canada at a young age. They were atheist socialist kind of political activist types. They wanted us to grow up in a more secular atmosphere and so we were raising peace my brother and I. And at a young age, I became a space junkie. I'm going to credit Star Wars and Star Trek. This is the stuff that I grew up with. Just absolutely fell in love with space. And for a long time, I wanted to be an astronaut, but when I realized that actual space travel involved very uncomfortable conditions and wasn't at all like being on the starship enterprise, I kind of gave that up. You said I'd rather wait 500 years until they work out those kinks because I don't want to be cramped in a capsule, right? Yeah, so incredibly uncomfortable conditions not glamorous and exciting at all. Like you see in the movies. And so I decided that I wanted to explore space in a different way, which is through science. And so I became dedicated to the idea that I was going to become some kind of a space scientist, either an engineer, or a scientist, tried engineering first didn't really like it. And then majored in physics and absolutely fell in love with it. And I was lucky enough to get summer intern position at UC San Diego, working it for the center of astrophysics and space sciences. Got to do some cosmological work, Big Bang the astrophysicists just
National School Boards Association Apology Is Too Little, Too Late
"The school board issue has now turned into the defining political issue. Of this year. The national school board association continues in their apology. Now, this is a very important thing. They're not apologizing because they regret what they said, they apologized with the political fallout that has resulted from it because they declared war on moms and dads across the country, asking the government to use the Patriot Act. And here's the most stunning thing that government agreed. Merrick Garland in front of the U.S. Congress, I don't even think he read the national school board association memorandum. We were mentioned in a turning point USA was mentioned in it because of our school board watch list. The national school board association continues with their Friday night apology, we're going to do better going forward. We're engaged in a formal review. Let me just stop. This is like vomit inducing consultant diversity equity inclusion. We're going to do better going forward. It's all like workshop. A formal review of our processes and procedures. Okay, so what was the review of how this came out? Was this some sort of 24 year old Brown educated double mask wearing non binary intern that was like, I'm going to ask the government to use the Patriot Act. Like, okay, that sounds a great idea. What was the process? We will announce specific improvements soon to ensure that there is improved coordination and consultation amongst our staff our board and our members across the country. The review will include not only the procedures or the proceedings leading to this letter, but also other related concerns raised by members, even before the letter was sent. We'll have more to share with you soon after our review continues. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. Thank you. They're not sorry. They're not sorry at all. They are in freefall. The national school board association got revealed as an organization that views moms and dads like Timothy McVeigh Eric Rudolph and the unabomber.

Race to Succeed Japan PM Suga Heats up
"Is now a wink. Since japan's prime minister yoshihiko super said he is to stand down as leader of the ruling. Ldp the race to succeed him is already in full swing. Well let's get the latest now for monaco's tokyo bureau chief in asia editor funeral wilson Good to have you with us. Thanks for joining us. Fear with good very good afternoon. Good morning to you. And now has the announcement of sucres departure really sunk in among the japanese yet. I mean it was. It was quick. It wasn't necessarily great surprise but it was a bit of a shock. Actually it was surprised he actually resigned. Honestly that was a shock because on thursday he was saying he was going to stand for re election as leader. If the ldp of course everyone knew this election was going to happen at the end of the month. Trenchant temper no surprise there but it looked like he was gonna run. He was getting all his Pieces in place softening up the right people look like he had and then suddenly on friday. He said no. I'm resigning and it seems that he was really hope by the The big the heavyweights in the party. It was time to go so it was a surprise. It has sankei. And i think there's been a lot of dissection in the media and the candidates are now emerging so who are the front runners in all this well. It looks at the moment. I mean lots of names have been mentioned obviously and anyone who follows japanese politics and you have to follow it closely to know who lost these people are but it looks like it's going to be a three way race basically. You've go tara conner. Who's the front runner. He's the man in charge of vaccines at the moment administrative reform. He's the one most people think he certainly has popular support. He's he's a bit of a loose cannon in some ways. He's very good at disrupting. He's not always good building consensus. I think he's the front runner. You have to mir kishida former foreign minister and sunai takeuchi. Who's the wildcard. I would say former intern faz. Minister earned would be japan's first female prime minister and she is being back rather curiously. I have to say patients up. Who's obviously still very influential. But in every other sense i would say she's an outlier.

Three Signs You Shouldn't Buy Whatever Someone is Selling
"Three signs. You shouldn't buy whatever someone is selling number one when they have king of the puddle syndrome. I'm basically an omni channel marketing ninja. Lucas told us. Once i optimize your seo you'll increase your sales by a thousand percent. I'm the best at what i do. You mean the best within a two mile radius. My intern muttered under her breath. Sending me an i role the marketing ninjas self-confidence was sky high but his pitch read on how do your metric compared to competitors i ask him other digital marketers had shown us track records of two to three point conversion rate increases. But lucas was baffled. It seems he didn't consider that there were others like him out there. But with more data driven sales pitches he stammered. Yep but What i do can't be summed up in a single number. It's complex because i look at the whole picture that's a little vague lucas and we hard lucas. The marketing ninja our investment would probably have vaporized thankfully his pitch fit a pattern that made it quick and easy to rule out. Still people often get fooled by others. Self-confidence it's hard to be the only person in the room thinking. I'll be the judge of that and if you're not a subject matter expert it can be even harder to spot baloney but when you're about to be bamboozled. There are a few ways to tell that self confidence is just camouflage for a lack of substance one. They exhibit king of the puddle syndrome. The only way to be the best at something when you are in fact not the best is to shrink your reference circle until you are the best in the circle. That's how millions of people can claim to be the most sought. After life coaches health experts marketing gurus or ad agencies they could be sought after by millions of clients or merely sought after in their own neighborhood
Colleges Are Going Big to Incentivize Student Vaccinations
"Colleges are trying to convince their students to get the covert vaccine with all kinds of incentives. Free parking free zip-lining even free tuition. Npr's listen adnia covers higher. Education has been looking into this morning. Good morning before. We start with the incentives. A lot of colleges are also saying. This is non-negotiable right. You have to be vaccinated. That's right more than six hundred colleges are requiring the vaccine for fall and once we get a full. Fda approval on one dot. Number will probably go up. I should just note that colleges have long required vaccine so it's not completely new. A few private colleges have announced fees for students who aren't vaccinated but for the most part schools are trying positive reinforcements with some pretty flashy incentives. One fund one is the college of charleston wants ninety percent of students vaccinated women happens. The school's president is going to sit in a dunk tank and let students take a shot at him. That is only an incentive for a certain type of what else did you find. College is doing well. The big one obviously is that you could win thousands of dollars in tuition costs. So that's happening. A number of places including including purdue where ten vaccinated students could win up to nine thousand dollars which is in state tuition for a year Our interns nee. Dave found around the country students could win football tickets free laptops at west virginia university. They're offering two hundred and fifty dollars gift. Cards to chick-fil-a. That's a lot of chicken but i think for free tuition. At ohio university students could win a photo. Shoot dinner with the men's basketball coach. Or and i love this. One have a drink named after them at an on. Campus coffee shop. Of course campuses are also hosting vaccine clinics at orientation and moving days to make that shot easy.
Bringing Service Animals Into The Lab
"So if you're a scientist say biologist or a chemist and you have to work in a lab. You're super familiar with the term. P p personal protective equipment which is p. p. e. is outer garments goggles boots and gloves. That's joey ramp. She works at the beckman institute for advanced science and technology at the university of illinois at her banish champagne. And yeah basically anybody who sets foot in. A lab needs some form of p. p. Even if you have four feet see. Joey has a service dog. Can you hear him little like ground sampson okay. He was getting up all right. Here we go samson. A golden retriever is trained not to bark and he's a very good boy when he's in the lab with joey. He wears goggles worn by military. Canine and buy police canine and law enforcement. He wears rubber bottom boots on each paw and he also wears a lab coat underneath his harness and that keeps them safe. Samson intern keeps joey safe in the lab and out years ago joey suffered a traumatic brain injury. She also has. Ptsd samson senses when she's in a stressful situation that could trigger her ptsd. he picks things up. Because you can't bend over that well and he helps her balance embrace when she's moving around. It's it's a cliche to say that the dog saved my life but A service dog really does that every single day but there was a time when joey was told that she couldn't have her dog with her. At least not if she also wanted to be in the lab they immediately said. Oh my gosh. You can't possibly bring a service dog into this environment. It's too dangerous so sadly there are a lot of science faculty that are reluctant to allow anyone with a disability into stem or science and When you have a service dog That that makes it an even bigger problem from the moment you walk in. You have a service dog. it's very visible. It's very different. And they have the power to say. No
I Bought It. Why Can't I Fix It?
"Several years ago journalists and kepler was on his very first work trip. He was an intern. Us news and world report. At the time he was excited. We did carry okay the first day and i got a little bit drunk. Nothing crazy but i fell asleep with my laptop in my bed watching comedy or something like on netflix. When jason woke up the laptop had moved down to the end of the bed without him realizing it and what happened next. Has that painful almost slow motion quality that anyone who is broken anything expensive knows all too well kicked it off the edge of the bed and the lcd broke on on me laptops. So the screen wasn't broken but if you opened it was just us all kinds of crazy colors and tickets be apple store and they wanted seven hundred dollars exit money that jason. An intern did not have so. We figured why not try to fix this thing myself he went on ebay and found a replacement. Lcd screen for fifty bucks. A fraction of the price that apple had quoted him and then he found some instructions online. It actually took me like ten hours to do like couldn't get the screen off. And i remember at one point. It was like four in the morning. And i grabbed in exacto knife which is not something you want to take the wires but i was just so frustrated and i just couldn't get the screen off to put the new one end eventually jason fixed screen and he used that computer for six years but the experience opened his eyes to a really important story in the tech world. One that he's been covering ever since it made me think like. Why does it cost so much to do this. It costs so much to get a device repaired by the manufacturer. And it's so hard to do it yourself because manufacturers from apple to samsung to microsoft. John deere make it that way.

"I completely agree gary I think this all really ties into initiative in every respect intern has initiative rather than just sitting around waiting for opportunities or task to drop in their hands. They pursue them and that doesn't justify do an internship. It just also applies in life. You know Successful people don't sit around and wait for the drop in their hand if they hear about opportunities they take them if they don't see opportunities they look for them so i completely agree with you guys with what they're saying This is the mindset. That will really help people no matter where they end up. Make sure you have initiative. I love it. Seems like you guys are all working on some some really interesting things And You know there's a lot there's a lot to look forward to Particularly now with with the human spaceflight for sure but just really all across nasa. There's there's a lot of cool stuff leah. You you mentioned you really excited for. Potentially you know working really hard on the star liner and seeing that launch. What else are you looking forward to By the by the end of your internship I have definitely probably annoyed. Most of my teams asking for work And asking for on console opportunities like like you guys won't mention the initiative is definitely a really big part of my internship and especially in quiet operations. You really have have that To be successful and help get emission from start to finish safely and get our crew home So for my internship. I am definitely looking forward to see us. Teeth the star liner and then also just giving to kind of see what happens on station and getting to read about the experiments there and and then making progress on getting some flight controller. Training drew my belt. So it's not something. I've been able to experience Before this internship. So that's been really neat and just getting to go back on site and inter are post coveted. world has been also really neat and Really exciting as an entering getting to be back on site. They exciting jaden some of the things. You're looking forward to kick off the summer boy. I just want to start by saying nasa provided an amazing foundation reason. Aspiring engineer Just being a part of this organization has provided me and i'm sure Kellyanne lee as well with so many opportunities that just leaves the door open for teenagers to flow in. You know even things like this this podcast. It just came out of nowhere Just for working at this organization. Like just for working for nasa Podcast being included in article Is just been an incredible experience. And the fact that nasa giving me kellyanne leah this ability to leave an impact. Anyway we can just by taking. These opportunities is just incredible. You know i. I just feel like a normal person. You know then people go up to me like what you work on. That's crazy my When they hear about the things we we do well they feel. They told me that they feel inspired and motivated. They they say they want to end up. And i just i think that's an amazing feeling being able to leave that impact on people so what i really wanna do is continue taking these opportunities and leading impact wherever i can Whenever i get another opportunity. I really wanna partake in it. Because i'm sure someone somewhere we'll watch it or hear it and be impacted by it and keep in mind that they can also achieve their dreams and their goal. I love it. I love at kelly. Some of the things. You're looking forward to Coming up not only for this semester.

"You have your you were there and you're not there but It's it's just amazing what you can what happens in that short about a time and how much how much you can accomplish so that when you do get to your exit presentation the presentation that you say. Here's what i did this past semester year. Like oh man. I actually i actually did do a lot and it's all because of that hustle that grind that you were saying that you put yourself through so jaden I'm i'm sir. I'm sure you've had a similar grinds when you were at the at the kennedy space center. Yeah so when. I entered construction of facilities. I became these face. I really had no idea what to expect. You know I knew sort of what the job entailed. But i had no idea the work that would have to be put in you know And being able to balance old time internship with fulltime school is definitely very difficult especially when you're taking twelve to fifty dollars a engineering classes on top of internship But it's absolutely worth it out the things you learn from this internship how you learn how to communicate you learn how to work in team you make meet so many different people. The intern And the employees that worked out now are just amazing. I haven't met a more genuine group of people like they're all very amazing And it's just While it might be tough it's it's all worth it because you're working towards where you wanna be like you know When i was younger. I lived at nasa and i was like wow. There's no way i'm ever gonna get that And even now like when people hear that. I'm in nasa. They always say things like oh really nasa. I'm not smart enough for that. i'm not qualified. Might be way too low for that. Listen i entered college with practically zero knowledge of any engineering. Besides what i've done in like elementary schools like bury their level stuff Like while i did engineering clubs as a kid. I had no idea what to expect. You know but that's okay. I was aware that this is only the beginning of the journey. And yes you do have to put the work into succeed. You know One thing you should never do is sell yourself short. I'm going to be completely honest. I wasn't even going to apply to the pathways program. Like i constantly told myself i wasn't qualified enough. I told myself. There's no point if i'm not going to get it anyways and no. My gpa wasn't high I wasn't one of those genius level. Kids you know But i applied anyways. Because i was told i could do it in that kind of told myself i do it and i made it. You know now i i know leah and kelly also went to very similar experiences. You know how we made it and now we're telling you guys not to make the same mistake that we almost you know. If you have a dream you got to pursue because in the end you might surprise yourself see. That's that's awesome because what you're saying is And what i'm hearing from From all of you really but Particularly from from you. Jaden and from leah is it's not. It's not clear cut and it's not easy at does it's not like and you know i worked really hard. I i studied. I got good grades applied for an internship. God at You know did great stuff while i was there. It seems like there's there's ups and downs all along the way. You're you're going to get some rejection. You're going to a lot of things where you have. Multiple things happening had no time. It seems like But no matter what sounds like both you are very passionate about and you want to do well and so you work very hard. It sounds like those are some of the qualities that are required to be successful intern When you're here at nasa kelly. I think you have the experience of being a mentor for a lotta these different students. You've seen the hustle and grind. Just like leah and jaden here Are are perfect examples of When it comes to being successful student what are some of these students. Doing that really stands out great. Great question You kind of touched on this earlier. The internships are pretty short. Usually you know a summer internship is typically around ten weeks or so so. Have you in a springer. Summer internship is typically sixteen weeks the the same like a standard academic semester. So if you really want to stand out what the key is is to come up to speed as quickly as possible on your particular task by gaining all the background information that you can possibly do that and so the way you can do that as you know you can go and read the reference materials at your mentor or your group will likely provide you The other key thing to do is just to ask a ton of questions The thing i always tell my insurance that i meant our is You're going to be overwhelm. You are going to be drinking from a fire hose. Your job is to try to absorb as much as possible and ask questions if you're not questions that is a red flag because if you think you if you think you know all this stuff you're incorrect just coming off the street basically and And if you are afraid to ask the questions well then you're never going to acquire the knowledge to be successful so the key is to learn as much as possible as quickly as possible. See so that they can get the background. Knowledge necessary So that they can be successful on their tasking. What we find generally for my insurance is that they spend the first you know several weeks just trying to get all the access and and all those types of things resolved making sure. They've got access to all the reference materials and then once they learn as much as they possibly can. They're really super high. Productivity period comes late in their internship typically in the last month or so and so by that period. It's almost time to wrap things up. So it's critical if you wanted it really stand out and to i think impress the organization that is hosting. You is to try to learn as much as possible. Push really hard during that initial phase of it. You can come up to speed as quickly as possible to make real contributions I would say that's my biggest piece Advice is to just keep on asking questions until you really understand the material. And if i can add on that i just wanted to add that You know another part of it from the interim perspective is getting to know your mentors and getting to to me as many people as you can and your experience because it is so short and you can't have a piece of every organization at nasa in that short time so getting to take the time and learn about perspectives of other people and really helped shape your experiences and kind of the path that you want down is really important as well. So she's getting to talk to as many mentors. There's any in terms of you can and your tour as well. That's that's really key leah and to build off of that and and what Kelly was saying kelly. You're you were mentioning. Ask a lot of questions right. But i feel like to to leah's point you've got to find. The right person asked the questions to because because it sounds like you're a great mentor kelly. Where you if someone's coming to you and asking a bunch of questions even if they think they're dumb question sounds like you're the person that's going to help them that that's going to spend time answering their questions. Not everyone may be like that so to point you gotta find the right person that that can guide you that can be your mentor If if not everyone's blessed with a with a kelly to help them along the way so jaden have you found a good mentor to lean on. Oh yeah absolutely One of my first weeks. I was provided with my mentor And he just guided me so much throughout this entire tenders. Send you so this internship. Whenever i have questions. I can go to him. He's the one that take me out on center Helps me understand conditioning stuff. Men's walk downs and all that stuff but i really do believe a good mentor is essential to success if you have a bad mentor And whenever you ask questions they kind of just shut you down..

"Group building console tools writing calculated writing tools that would you calculations to accelerate and streamline console operations and things like that so it made me realize you know. I just learned a little bit of programming stuff at school. That was mostly focused on. You know. Solve this equation or compute this to help me solve problems that the boy you could really a lot of pretty amazing things the software That were practical and salt. You know feel problems that Fly controllers had so I think one thing that kind of informed my pass was i. Was you know i felt like i didn't belong here in terms of boy. All these people with More background we're involved in robotics clubs and Stem backgrounds and stem family. Things like that. I didn't have any of that. So i just felt very determined to try to earn my place here. i didn't realize You know how hard i was working. I guess at the time. And so i think the kind of the thirst to prove myself here. I think kind of helped launch me And just being willing to learn from my mentors your so generous with their time with me to teach me specialized skills that. I was certainly not going to learn at school Because it's so specialized or or so advanced that it would take you know a master's or a phd Curriculum to try to get that type of knowledge and so just being willing to learn and and do the work. I talked to learn from the very best here. I think Kelly that that thirst to prove yourself is going to be a pretty big seem throughout today's discussion. I i feel like both leah and jaden are going to have a lot of A lot of that to to share and it sounds like you did as well. Which is i think. Impart the reason that you're working on nasa. Even today leah. I'm sure you have a story about whenever you came to nasa Something that you were doing as thirst to prove yourself. Yes i didn't even know that the pathways program existed. I came in as ussery intern. And then i thought that was the coolest thing ever. And i'm set you know i'm in the door. And then the palestinians program came up. And i realized why i want to be in that and you know just like kelly. I didn't get it. The first time i worked really hard my interview and you know i walked out of their thinking. Wow this went really well. And then i didn't get an author and honestly that's about most of the people who apply to the pathways program. They don't get the first time. And so just having that that thursday outside of nafta to keep going if you if you really want the nas internship you know don't give up on that takes the time to put in that application and you know too well with it and find mentors to review all your materials that you'll sneer submitting and you know. Just take that time really necessary to to do well with just the application process So then i applied my second time last spring so in twenty twenty and it was it went well again and this time i was a little bit nervous about getting off her and then i ultimately ended up getting an offer and coming on this past spring and this past spring. I was definitely in an area that that wasn't as interesting as some of the other places that i've worked in my previous tours and so i was a little done devout it and it was a little hard to kind of find that motivation me at first to to really participate and really push myself to go the extra mile by think honestly just working virtual Also played a part in that Just through the cova did not always being on site and ultimately just kind of you know throwing myself in it and taking the time to learn all the tools i needed to succeed and you know working those long hours and maybe even a little more than forty hours a week and just on the grind of setting up goals for myself manageable. Goals that you know. I can use my mentor to meet and we can work together to kind of help. Guide me along the wave. Something shifts or the deadline gets a little bit push and really understanding you know. Where am i and work and i go and my tour that i have right now so i think for me. It was just really setting those schools. And by the end of my internship I was very happy. I didn't know that. I had done as much as i had to. I got to my I the presentation you know it was well. I didn't know that you did all this. You know this is something then. Intern would've done and a lot longer period. And you've done it in such a short time So just you know. Being willing to learn like kelly and jaden both added england to push yourself if you want something you know. Set up those goals to get it. I think that hustle was pretty keithly. Because i remember those those same things when i was pathways it seemed and especially i mean. I think you're definitely gonna find it this summer But man man the summer the summer internships go by in a snap like they are they just fly and it seems like you have your you were there and you're not there but It's it's just amazing what you can what happens in that short about a time and how much how much.

"And so i really wasn't didn't really know what engineering was As a high school student I really enjoyed foreign languages. And so for several years. I was thinking about Studying a whole bunch of different foreign languages in college didn't really know what to do with it. But i knew i enjoyed it But then my senior year of high school On william i took physics. I was always pretty good at science And took physics. I thought it had something to do. Maybe with adams or something. Like that. And i absolutely loved it And it was kind of a an epiphany for me at. This is absolutely what i wanted to do. You know. I was somewhat disappointed to find out how much math is going to be involved physics but once i You know got over that My teacher told me about engineering. And hey if you're really interested in this you know maybe you should consider a path in engineering Being from iowa iowa state university of the state schools is Probably the most well known engineering school. And so i thought i could just go study engineering. Well it turns out. There was all these specializations and i buy. I didn't really know what i should do. But i really like airplanes and i had seen the movie october sky which came out when i was in high school about homer hickam and his story resonated with me and i really enjoyed You know they can bottle rocket or model rockets and things like that. So i signed up for engineering not knowing how to program Didn't know what programming was thought. Maybe it had something to do with wires and circuit boards or something And it's funny smell. I got my master's degree in computer science. I'm focusing on artificial intelligence machine learning And so my path you know in high school. I was really involved in sports And i did Choir and band and stuff And i think kind of the the element of performance of being willing to get up on stage in front of the Your peers and sing a solo where play a solo on your musical instrument helps kind of build confidence and so it turns out those types of soft skills that you develop sensitive extracurricular activities outside the classroom can pay enormous dividends in your career and engineering where those types of communication skills sometimes aren't as prevalent. Frankly and so That that was kinda my pass To make the nasa. And help kind of get to where i am today. So then tell me about fr- from there kelly going into your co op experience at nasa going from there and then what you did to stand out while you were there. Sure i well. I guess My pats and nasa was kind of a funny one..

Because i have worked with some companies very even the entire diet. Corporate communication strategy has been adapted to save need to demonstrate privacy and brick or trust centric language. Does it impact in your view. Or i think Many look at over the last. I would say five years right because it came into force in two thousand eighteen where we started preventing probably about two years ago that from any number of and and Of course after it was coming to force your periodic audits and other things to make sure we are compliant on all fronts Like any other company you can order changes in how reba capturing data processing data you know.

Warehouse Manager Sells Twitter-Threads-as-a-Service
"That hugh alexander works as a retail warehouse manager by day. When he isn't thinking about the logistics of his job he's hanging out online looking for inspiration and ideas yet he also knows an idea is just the starting point making something in marketing. It is win. The real battle begins that was never more evident than his first attempt at starting a profitable project you had the technical know how to make a website but he fell short on finding an audience at least until matthew started noticing twitter threats now twitter threads for those who aren't familiar are a series of related tweets that tell a story or elaborate on a topic when two hundred and eighty characters isn't enough. Some people share their best tweets or connecting. Anything they feel requires the additional text for example. A thread might include a series of exercise tips or tips to improve your business. In a specific way it might be political commentary. It could be anything. In relation to matthews project. He'd seen a lot of twitter threads go viral and helped to significantly boost the poster's profile in number of followers with that audience. They could monetize their service and products at least potentially so he said about trying it for himself with his accounts and lo and behold things improved. He didn't set the world on fire overnight but his follower numbers increased after he started posting threats. Forever business-minded matthew. You saw an opportunity if twitter threads worked for others as well as himself might people be willing to pay for a service that wrote the threats for them. It was an unusual idea so he said about testing the concept. He purchased the domain name. Taas dot co that stands for twitter threads as a service and used a free website. Builder called card to launch. The site quickly card intern allowed for easy. Integration with stripe to process payments after customers paid macua. Direct them to a google form or they answered a few questions about their business objectives. That was all it took to be up and running for a cost of well under one hundred dollars being part of online communities such as indie. Hackers made validation a little easier. Matthew simply tugged on the strings and hopes of selling his twitter threads service. It didn't take too long to find his first customer and he charged fifty bucks for the first month in exchange he create ten threads and also offer scheduling as well as performance reports. Matthew analyzed customers content and audience but before actually doing the work. He made a confession. He told that customer they were his first one and he'd be using their account to learn feeling bad about it. Even offered a fifty percent refund on the purchase price. It turns out he needed to have worried. Because after the first month they were happy and wanted to keep going
What Is the U.S. Doing to Help Cuba?
"Get to it with our first topic. Which is actually about the historic protests in cuba where thousands of people took to the streets all across the country amid an economic crisis in food shortages exacerbated by the corona virus pandemic. In the last few days we've seen the government in cuba restrict internet access and block most social media sites. Although from what i read. Twitter is still like bobbin in cuba because the government uses twitter and also there were reports of over one hundred people who have been arrested or missing and that actually is. According to amnesty international and at least one person has died in clashes with police on wednesday. The president of cuba miguel diaz canal announce that they would lift restrictions to allow travelers to bring food and medicine into cuba from abroad. There is also an admission by him saying that his government could have done better with these protests that was interesting meanwhile back in the united states i feel like a comic book like meanwhile back at the white house on thursday president joe biden call. Cuba quote failed state and condemn their government's actions. We also know that the us has a role in this as there has been a decades old. I mean more than sixty years trade embargo by the united states against cuba which essentially prevents any business between the countries didn't back to nineteen sixty two k. So this has become an american tradition. Now the embargo just what it is. Yeah right you know what i'm saying. So but then the other thing is during the trump administration and this is what i find interesting. There were more sanctions put on cuba under trump and flight and remittances from family members in the us to cuba were even further restricted by the bynum ministrations. Pretty much has done. Nothing since biden has come into office. Nothing's really changed when it comes to cuba which you would think by now you know if we all remember obama he was like. Let's lift the embargo. You know what i mean. It was like you're in that administration. Joe right but according to the vitamin administration. They said that they are reviewing these policies but they've yet to reverse. Any of them are fabulous intern. Sarah her shandor spoke with an i guests. She has been on. Itt before seventy nine three goes who is a correspondent for political and somebody is of cuban-american descent and she has been reporting on cuba. This week and sabrina talked about the government's suppressive tactics like cutting internet access. And what cubans are hoping for so. Let's listen connecting for people has been a difficult. There's friends that. I haven't heard from in days that i know went out for the protests in there is that frustration anxiety about were. They beat in where they arrested. Are they missing an. It's hard to connect with people at this moment but a lot of people feel a level of frustration and desperation. That i had not heard before i mean. People have been tired of the dictatorship in cuba. But i will actually say from my perspective. Who was born and raised in cuba has been in exile in the united states for the majority of her life at this point. She's ninety one and she is optimistic. That change can happen. I mean her attitude about this is it can't stay this way forever and that these human rights can be violated forever. People can't be going hungry in dying on the streets from the pandemic without access to a hospital without access to medicine let it cannot continue that way indefinitely so that if it doesn't happen this time it has to happen at some point

Did the USWNT Purposely Disrespect Our Country and National Anthem?
"Bongino show, you know, just in the intern brought up a good point here about this story about the U. S women's soccer team. Turning away from the You're not putting their hands on their heart during the national anthem. Yeah, I mean, they're playing for the U. S. Women's soccer team. It's not C y O Jim remember C y o u.

Republicans pounds story Republicans pounds on on soccer players not putting their hands in her. It's only a matter of time, so I figured well, just get out ahead of it and write the headline for sees. Republicans seized Quickens show Republicans leap It will definitely be about the Republicans response to it rather than what they did not putting their hands over their heart. Now listen again. I'm giving you both sides of it. I'm telling you, my opinion, the other side of it. The U. S soccer team is saying, Hey, we didn't do that. We just didn't know whatever. We were looking at the guy playing the harmonica instead, folks, I'm sorry. I've taken an informal poll around the studio. It's not scientific. We're all generally conservative or libertarian here, but I give you my honest opinion. I should any of you actually believe this was a mistake. And there's maybe we're up like 2.5. No way. This is not a mistake. Just put your hand over your heart. It's not complicated. Disrespecting of the national anthem when you're playing for the U. S team. This is deeply disturbing to me. I'm sorry. I mean, if you think I'm making a big deal out of it, then that's fine. I mean, Maybe on your program or

Progressive Take on Christianity
"Thank you so much for being here cathy. I have a lot of questions for you. And i'm really excited that we're doing this. Thank you. i'm excited to be here saadia. So right off the bat. I was listening to your interviews and i discovered that you and i agree on. Things are theme for season. Eleven is religion spirituality an american identity. We are trying to dig deep into that intersection analogy. And you're a practicing christian. What is your interpretation of god. And how does your relationship with god manifest in your everyday life. That's a great question you know. I grew up imagining god to be a white man. You know the language around heavenly father and even though my earthly father is not a white man. I think there was something around the way in sunday school that was taught and imagined or described. I always imagined kind of this older white. Bearded man and that has changed thankfully over the years and decades and really believing god is neither male nor female and fat. God as god creator doesn't take human form as god right so in the christian faith god takes human form in. Jesus yes. I agree with that but god as god for me no longer takes that form And that has been for me that biggest shift in the last few years really embracing that and understanding that and so in my day to day experience and expression and understanding of god is that there is a presence of the creator in all living things and even indirectly in all things that god the creator has created us human beings and we then intern mimic that in the creation
Keeping Ads out of Dreams
"First up this week we have news interns so feel not know. Her story is about a letter from forty scientists warning of his efforts to influence people's dreams. Hi sophia hey.

Is there evidence that people's dreams candy manipulated die some evidence but not a lot basically researchers in the last decade having trying to do so what they call dreaming. Kobe show which is to guide people to dream about things that they want them to dream and they have some success the lab but this is not something new. I must say people have been trying to do that.

Rejection - How To Cope?
"Especially being a lebron and bang the waco defense scissors i would say i think we have a unique perspective or an unique ability to see all the points of us lebron's so from that angle. I've come up with this little theory that rejection can be reframed as seeing someone self exiting from your life. Wow i think this is overcomplicating things. This over complicating matters. Welcome to my brain. I understand that your theory is helping you cope with the situation and we like to find justifications to endure the pain or the rejection itself. I would like to give you just rights trade at your head. Something very important and i wish for you. Keep it for the rest of your life and beyond spread it. Just no it with every single cell in your system. So when someone's rejecting you lemme ask that. Why would you want to have anything to do with the person who apparently does not want to have anything to do with you. Why that's a great christian dicey but it doesn't really. I laugh the emotional attachment that you would have to that person in circumstances so what you're talking about jiming is asking a logical question to an emotional state which in turn helps you to change. Emotional state thoughts lead to feelings feelings. Need to behavior so When you change your thinking you will change how you feel about it and therefore you will be able to behave in a different way. Even the person who rejected you. But i am catching you in here. Because here's the thing when you tried to cope with the situation by justifying other people's behavior. It's a trap. it's not your purpose. it's not your job. It is not your life purpose to justify anyone else's feelings emotions actions spirituality. And i could go on the list. A-to-z it's not your purpose. That's one way of looking at it. That i'm justifying it but it's not about buying it for me about understanding why is happening because for me and i am quite logic based if i can understand something than i can do with much much. Easier and understanding human behavior is one of the great learning curves. I'm on right now. i appreciate that. It's it's a never ending learning curve. The problem i see with this what you're trying to achieve. I understand you correctly that you're trying to understand. Why now in order to understand their why whoever they are you would have to think like them feel like them have had the same experiences as they had an have had to give the same meaning that they gave to specific sections that they went through. So it's impossible. So why would you try to participate in mission impossible. Unless you're tom cruise. Then you can do that though. Hang on now. You're saying that empathy can't be achieved. We did not hear you say maybe you saw. I have not heard hang on. I can't let me expand because for me. Empathy is understanding why they do that. What led them to that understanding what it feels like for them to me that sympathy and that's the same thing as when i'm saying i won't understand from their point of view. Why they join that. It makes it easier for me. That's the same thing is empathy to you. Well i'm glad you clarified undefined. The word empathy for you in this particular context or in this context very important. I feel and i feel strongly that empathy not necessarily includes that i understand. Why another person's doing what they do widely do what they do. I do believe that empathy is something that i'm respecting the choices their decisions and i'm accepting them because they empathy when we are going on the emotional level. Let say i hit my foot here. Because i kicked the neighbor stock. I never would do that by. It's just an example. But let's say. I kick the neighbor stock because again it came over here and whatever chewed on my cushions on the lounger and now i hurt my foot and you may say to me. Oh i'm so sorry all. This must be really hurting. Do you really believe that you can feel exactly the way i feel about me hurting my foot including the emotional charge to it to really believe. That's possible i think it is if you've been in a similar situation implies don't believe exactly nari but i do believe that you can get to an understanding of what it's like them based on similar things happening to you. I believe you can only relate to how another person feels but you can never feel exactly how another person feels. Well not exactly. And why. I'm saying that is because even identical twins in the same situation growing up in the same household do not perceive the same situation at the same time executive same. Neither emotionally not rationally. I case let's say that given. But the actual point i think is that you mentioned it being a justification of their behavior and i don't believe that's where i'm going it's not a justification is an understanding that intern helps me understand. So that's the angle. I was coming from when i was speaking about trying to understand the reason for the rejection and why framed it to myself is self exiting was a way for me to not be so hurt and not take it personally but say from their point of view this is not right for them and their life and so they need to exit themselves. That makes it a lot less hurtful for me now. Maybe that is over complicating it. Sure i'll love you. That and i do like the fact that you've pointed out that asking you so flood questions while you're an emotional state can help change your state. So that's really clever. And i think something that is easily put into action in anybody's life. So maybe that's a great direction to go down here when we're talking about how to help how lisa's when they of feeling rejected which. I'm all about behavior. I do believe behaviors all that matters.

"I almost over promising. Hey, if you do X. Y.. You'll be my successor and I just have to share as sort of a side note. Please be careful if anybody listening to this is doing up because succession planning's grade, but that person needs to realize the board ultimately hires the executive director, so unless you have a board that is one hundred percent in in line with that doesn't WanNa ever go through some kind of search process, and sometimes they do just you know just because they want to. Do you know a fair process? and. Then they find someone better. I just like. Please don't set up your employees for that because it's heartbreaking for everybody on I. Guess and I think I think. Whenever? You're in a position, your next executive director position. It's your responsibility to. Give your staff as much training as you possibly can in every aspect of the organization absolutely, and and yes, I agree you absolutely should not promise somebody on your staff that they're going to be the AD. When you leave because because again, you don't have any control over that. You can obviously make a recommendation. Your recommendation may have a lot of weight, but still not the person making the higher. But at the same time you like trying to like doing your best train. People underneath you to be able to ultimately replace. You is probably a really good land rates. To look through all of your training activities with so whenever you're talking to bring New People on, and you say great. I'm going to be out of here in five years. I want you to at least be a strong candidate for when I leave obviously can't promise it for you, but let's let's see if we can put together. All of the things that you need to know in order to take my position before before I leave, so you'll be ready for it once I leave I. Love the way you position it. It. Andy I love the way position at that's the way it needs to sad instead of sort of like the Schuman. Thing and I think that happens a little bit more when you are. Founder led organization because the founder obviously feels like they and many times they do have a lot of power and control, so they feel like they get to pick their next replacement, but it's a very corporate. METALLICA like in in really big companies. That's a that happens all the time. So the the CEO has their senior vice president, or whatever the director of each of their different divisions, and they're all. They're all fighting for that your job, and so they're all constantly. They know they're in play as soon as that CEO leaves. All of those people are theoretically. Able to take that top job in, they're working the whole time to be able to take that top job when they're ready, but you can't promise it to one of them because you don't have control over promising it to him, so it's very very corporate thing, but it's usually like. Cats and dogs fighting and That kind of there's a lot of cats and dogs I think cats and dogs are on your minds because I'm stuck in the House with them all the time. That's all I talk to.

If this person. anyways, it's just it's kind of like did the Personal WanNa be on the blue word, or did the board sort of coke into it like as a runner up prize. Oh, you can be a volunteer. Board Ma'am I. Don't know there's just like I kind of want to know the context because I think it makes it I think it changes the dynamic like for all we know. Let's let's say positives positive best case scenario. Right for all. We know this person interviewed. Maybe along the way they got another position, or they just decided that this wasn't the right fit and the, but they were still passionate enough that they were even interviewing for the job and the board said well. You know we're looking for board members. You want to be on this. I would be a bit more okay and comforted by that scenario then I would, if it were some other scenario right that we can think of. It just feels and then, and yet I'm kind of like your new executive director. Do you. Even raise this as a concern yet. Maybe it's GonNa. Be a concern or worry like I don't know if I would start off my like already starting bringing this problem to the board, I might just be more curious. Hey. Can you tell me a little bit? You know what's our process for recruiting? How did the new board member? Can you walk me through it like I think I would want to understand that context? I agree I mean I think. Succinctly answer the question in my opinion. I don't know that I'd bring it up. I think it's like it's done the person on the board. All YOU'RE GONNA. Do is like you're gonNA sound weird. Asking paranoid, maybe a little paranoid and like a little lake threatened. Can come across Russell accused me scenario like if you WANNA, spin it and imagine a scenario where this is totally reasonable, so there's this feeling in the for profit world that having worked in a sales job whatever and gone to a senior vice president position at a bank or whatever? Gives you enough authority that you could just run a nonprofit because they're super easy right, and so hey I'm I'm seventy two years old I'm tired of Sellin. Bank services, or whatever but I I still feel like I want to give back and here's this executive director position that just opened and you know I'm I'm a senior guy. Everybody knows I'm in the community for years so maybe I'll just apply for this position. I can be their executive director so the board. WHO's a smart board goes? There's no way in hell. We're hiring you for. For this job, because you have no relevant experience to running a nonprofit, like just an old, and having had a job and still being alive at seventy two does not qualify you for running a nonprofit. However, you are relatively wealthy, so maybe if you're passionate about the organization, we could find a board position for you instead of trying to run the place and that way we can hire somebody who actually has the skills and experience to do this job, and then you can still be involved in it to whatever level you feel like being involved. I think that's probably and I've seen that happen to you know you see that you sound like the the pool of resumes that come in for nonprofit executive director jobs, and there's always a handful of these people who just like you know we'll I'm sort of done with my four provinces. Let me slum the nonprofits throughout. Breezy, right so maybe. A clue. Idea, so maybe it's one of those people in that was just the boards, the boards way of like letting them down easy and also finding somebody who's totally cool. What they're giver get policy. Yeah, that'd be. That'd be an extra bonus. I mean even if so, so if this were me in this position I would just pretend that that was the scenario regardless of whether it was not and just act as if that were the scenario, because at the end of the day. It's the I. said it again the end of the day. All the time, I can't stand it, but I. Still it at the end of the day. It's still it's the board and the board is the board. They're going to be good board members. They're going to be bad board members and as the executive director. It's your job to manage it. And and you got the job and this person didn't. Which makes you the person that's your? It's your job now, so so it's your responsibility to move forward and you didn't hire any of these executive. You didn't hire any of these board. Members these are all board members that were there when you got there, so part of your job as a new ad is to weed off the terrible ones and bring new good ones right? I think in some ways you know what this this person and I have no clue their background, but there may even be a little. Idea of imposter syndrome where we feel like we're not sure worthier. Of the job I wonder if that's at play and it can feel a little bit intimidating like like. If I had someone that was a finalist for position, and I'm the one who got it I would feel like I was being scrutinized whether I was or wasn't that would be my internal story, and so the person who wrote this hopefully has enough confidence to sail us in. Because the right person I'm going to do a good job, and you know sorta starting with good feeling like good intentions and sort of a good mindset is going to be important. Yeah I think that's great and it's. It's very similar to the situation where somebody on staff. Goes out for the executive director position and doesn't get it because they're not qualified. And then then you have this person that didn't get the job. Who Still Works for right? It's a worse scenario because a board member you. It's just a board member. They're fine. You know they're going to do what they're gonNA. Do you need to manage it a staff member? You're responsible for them because they belong to you so either figure out. How quickly can I get rid of this person or you know? Maybe they're really sweet, and they like it they. They know it wasn't their time, but ninety nine percent of the time. They're just going to be a pain in your, but. Okay, so you know. I'm great at the Tangent, so I have to just throw a quick tangent in here because what you just said reminded me, I am seeing. A lot of organizations doing this thing where the executive director slash founder is sort of identifying their own person internally rate that they want or thinks should be there successor, and then.
"intern" Discussed on Nonprofit Everything
"Don't feel like we can say no, because this donor knows were short staffed, but I'm also leery of committing to this. Because we are short staffed as not sure, we have enough time to help or if we bring her on this summer. Do you have any thoughts on how to handle this? Oh! We love these requests from donors. Don't we always put us in these really uncomfortable situations I? Guess I mean I. Guess my first question is. Do you need this kind of support so first question like stepping back overall. Forget about the donor for a minute like. Do you need grant writing support? Maybe grants aren't your strategy right? Lot of organizations say we're not doing grants. We're GONNA raise raise dollars in revenue in different ways. If it is a priority then. I would say. Perhaps, explore it, but I think maybe there's an opportunity to talk to the donor and say hey, listen, we do here's. Our limitations were happy to explore this. We WanNa make sure it's a good fit for your daughter and a good fit for us. So why don't you know if you're okay with it? We'd like to set up. Maybe you can set up a meeting with us, and we can just sort of talk about our limitations and capacity issues, because we're not even sure if she's looking for a lot of oversight and like help and mentor ship. This is the honest truth. We don't have that to give right, and so we're not sure this will be the best fit so I. Think it's just managing I'm all about managing expectations on the outset both with donor here and the person and the daughter because that will not bode well if If they both are expecting something different, and then you kind of fail him on that I mean how many I mean remembering back. How many internships did you have to do where you went in? And the person was sort of obligated to accept an intern, because you're in the nonprofit program, and it's part of the deal that they had to take one and you'd go in, and you'd sit in the office and she'd say so. What do you want to work on and you'd be like? Honestly nothing. Can I just ask at least? As part of my requirement that I have to be here, and so so if you don't have the capacity to really come up with the project, and like whole handhold for the entire project it's it's going to be more trouble than it's worth unless this person is. Incredibly Sharp, and is a self starter, and is able to sort of grab a program by the horns, and just run with it. Because that I've seen that happen to you. GET SOMEBODY WHO's really smart and really motivated and really wants to do it. But if it's like somebody just needs a somebody's kid needs a summer job because they're too lazy to go to McDonalds or whatever. that. I don't know that that somebody the alleged I'd be jumping at. Yeah and I think a lot of it right like I wonder what this person studying college degree is in like. Is this something that's just like a check off, or is this sort of in line with where they're trying head, and as you said, I guess on the positive side. Maybe you get a stellar. Sort of student intern for the summer, and they could be a potential employee down the road. Who knows I mean I? Think there some I don't think it's all bad news, but I think the managing expectations from the beginning and. If for some reason you can't. You don't have the capacity, or you don't really need the grant writing support. Then I think that's an opportunity to see the donor. This is actually not at all really in our strategic what we do this. That's not how we raise money here, so appreciate it, but why don't I have an organization that would be you know might be a great fit for your top. That other organizational kirsty right, but anyways, but you never know it could all work out. In I think grant writing is one of those things that you tell me I think boards. Think grant writing is super easy. There's just like a bunch of money out there, and you just have to write something, and they will send you the money, but that's their perception of what grant writing is, and it's actually very very hard, and and not at all obvious and easy the way it needs to be done, so it's not something that I would like even if I did have a desire if I was short a grant writer. Somebody who'd never done it before on summer from college and say Okay you can write grants for me. That's not I I agree Andy. The other thing I was thinking about is i. mean even thinking in in work I've done with clients unless you are embedded in that organization, and you're a staff member who really knows the INS and outs? Unless you're that person? You have a lot of questions as grant right and to do it well. Like, you need to help me understand all. You have to educate me on your organization so I can actually write about and. That takes a lot of time that the putting the budget together like coming up with what the metrics are going to be for like what the outcomes are, and how you're gonNA miserable, those things those are not something that you can just makeup. If so so as far as alternative scenario, so say say you view this donor. Is the kind of person that's GonNa require you to find something for her daughter to do. What. What kinds of things what kinds of things do you think you could pitch for somebody who's intelligent, but but isn't Intel isn't going to be able to just pick up grant writing on the fly. One of the things we used to do was is like. Have Somebody do some research projects? Yes, I was just thinking l.. Research is a great area and say like you know. Come up with you know. Can you come up with some surveys because we need to find out about this and have them put that together and then administer the survey in that kind of stuff. It's definitely something. Something that's tangentially related to grant writing, because you need to understand how how to put those kinds of things together how to get survey responses, and how to how to interpret the spot responses that you get, or even just like you know, sit in the library and use some of the grant databases and find out what kinds of things are available. That I might not already know about. Absolutely. Yeah, that's N. none of us I. Mean Most nonprofits don't have any time to do the research that they need to do right so that's a great project..
"intern" Discussed on Nonprofit Everything
"I had someone do a small amount of work for our nonprofit and asked them to send an invoice many times. The person is not sending it. Previously I had paid them without one and just recorded the work, but wanted a record since this was on a specific grant. The person in question is a student. Should I just pay her or continue to ask cruelly invoice? Maybe you could do a little bit of both. Depending on if this person is real I mean if you're paying them, you're probably sounds like a ten ninety nine situation where this is just a little bit of work for hire your. You just wanted them to come in and do one little tiny thing, but but it's not an employee kind of job. First of all you know. Make sure that you've got that. Put together properly that you understand what the requirements for ten ninety nine employees are, and that you're not getting in trouble for doing it that way if you want them to send you an invoice, and they're not sending you an invoice. You're still kind of on the hook for paying them because they did the work. So. Bug, them for an invoice, and if you get to the point where you're making it a podcast question, maybe fake an invoice up and send it to them and say hey, does this look right? Can you email me back this and that way? You have an invoice on file with their name and address and everything you can file a properly. Pay Them off of that and be done with it because when your auditor comes in and says why is there was this two hundred and fifty dollars for you paid this person two hundred and fifty dollars. I don't see I. don't see W to see an invoice. Are you just spending your money to get? Two hundred and fifty dollars, worth of massages or something, so you're going to want to have something on file so that you can prove that you paid for actual services with it anyway. I'm a bit of a stickler because I get that. You've already sent person money in the past without an invoice I don't think that's reading, too. Your training them. What they can get away with and for student like this feels like. Feels like a golden opportunity and like learning moment for that student and it's like I. I know you could just send them the outright invoice like you're suggesting Gandhi and absolutely you know if not if all else fails, do it but I'm I'm also like why like could you send him like an invoice template that they still need to fill in, so they have to put a little work toward it misses me. Probably being, but I'm like. Come on like you, WanNa get paid. You need to learn. There's a process for this so I. Guess I'm being a stickler, but I I would probably say send them I. Don't know I guess it depends how much time you spend on this. If you just want to be done with incent him.

"intern" Discussed on Journey to $100 Million
"And I was usually involved incision wanted to hire someone that was at least mid level to senior level. We almost never wanted to bring someone in that was junior level. Now going back to previous fifteen years or so I was in software development. So as a software development company, we just didn't really want to deal with someone that didn't know what they were doing. And if a lot of time and effort to bring them up to speed, and it was just a gamble. And so my hiring up to maybe like the last year or two has always been hiring mid to senior level people. Well, since we refocus to digital marketing, one of the things we realize is that there are at ton of marketing students in local colleges around here who are eager to do work as interns now we struggled with whether we should pay them or not in the end, we decided to pay. Ah them because we expect deliverables outta them. What we've found is that it's a great value. And these students are super eager to jump into the workplace and get real work done since we're doing digital marketing exclusively these days. It's a great fit because he students come in with a lifetime of experience dealing with digital marketing. Now, they're not experts by stretch of the imagination, but they know the basics of things like social media advertising and websites. We don't need to teach them that. Right. All we need to do is teach them the best way to do it. And if they come in with a good attitude, it's a great fit. So we experimented with this over the last two years. And at this point our process is really set we hire interns for a set amount of money all interns, get the same amount of money when they come in here. They work by the hour. It's roughly fifteen to twenty hours per week. They get amazing experience. They really do. It's a good thing for them to come in here and work for us and learn from us because we we are definitely way ahead of our competitors. And a leave with a wealth of experience. We also ensure that they get certifications while they're here part of the requirement is you have to get one or two certifications and things like Google or Facebook while you're here on the job. So it's great for them. They get amazing experience get money. They get certifications. It's a resume builder is great for us because they're enthusiastic they're relatively cheap. Actually, scratched the relative there really cheap when it comes to wages compared to a full-time person. You don't need to pay them benefits. It's a win win win for everybody. We love it. And the amazing thing is we have converted several of them to full time employees. So again young. Eager not very high wage requirements. They do really good work. They come in. And knowing a lot about the business already. And it's so good that we've converted them to full time employs. So check out your local colleges. See if they have an intern program get to know, the professors in your particular industry at that, college and see if interns a right for you. Definitely right for us. Thank you for
