The coronavirus has sparked a boom in digital health
"I wanNA talk about something that in the midst. Of the misery and the death count's with corona virus in every bad situation. There's always good that emerges at the same time. In an example of that is how the? Health Insurance, industry, and the medical industries have both been. Extremely, hostile through the years to using modern technology such as electric visits telehealth, whatever you WANNA, call it virtual visits. And Corona virus changed all that a raw economics that were affecting the medical industry forced in industry that is always reluctant to change I mean think about. I got a question for you where else in your life name anywhere else in your life ever. That you walk in and you fill out pieces of paper. Seriously like it's nineteen, sixty five. We've got all these electronics today and you fill out paper. At hospitals and doctors offices, you must be kidding me that's how antiquated and backwards medicine is practiced. Okay. Enough about them. But Anyway Corona. Virus. Devastated the revenue models. Of the medical. Industry. People's visits to doctors collapsed. Huge number of people. To great detriment of their own health and potentially life we're not going for things even like their heart care. Or cancer care or chronic illnesses like diabetes not going for their visits they were worried they're going to walk into a doctor's office and they were gonNA come out. With Corona virus and not survive. So medicine finally was like, Hey, maybe that electronic stuff that would work maybe we could try that. Give you an example Humana. According to the Kinsey Business Journal. Nationally has already had a million telehealth visits. Averaging, thirty three thousand visits a day. Just Corona virus. Bay were having virtually zero. Gone from virtually the road a thirty three thousand day. Because doctors wanted their money. But the crazy thing is. It actually dramatically improves. Patients health apparently. because. Big percent of people. Just don't get around going to the doctor even if they have one. And with Corona virus, people just weren't going at all. So, in terms of WHO has a doctor? Anyway a primary care doctor. Only somewhere around sixty percent or so a people even have one. and. Then of those that do. If they try to schedule an appointment, usually, it's really really hard to get one. We'll telemedicine the appointments tend to be shorter they tend to be more focused. And they can eliminate problems that would happen otherwise. But what's even more important? Is. It does improve health outcomes apparently according to the American Academy of Family Physicians Research Save. Done. But. The bigger thing is by having those virtual visits. It creates a relationship. Between doctor patient that right now, even if somebody has a doctor of record, they don't have. something. Goes undetected. So they can get really sick. Who wouldn't have gotten sick somebody could die who wouldn't have died Or. Could have a chronic condition get much worse. So. This is. One of those times where? Something that disrupted all. Pretty much all our lives. is going to have a long-term positive benefit. And it was all about the money.

Americans are saving more right now
"From. scare federal agency. The Bureau of Economic Analysis. On Americans saving money. During Corona virus is part of this. K- recovery were in. There are people that. Can't even put food on the table right now and can't pay basic bills and then others who have stayed employed their job spent been secure. Who are not spending money like they normally would. And or saving money in ways they never thought they could never have in the past. So the latest data does not cover August, it covers July it's you know a trailing indicator, but the average American right now is saving eighteen cents of every dollar they make. You take those that if you call the heard to people that are not worried about their paychecks staying employed, they're saving substantially more than that is a percent of their pay. Because you got to cut out the people who can't save anything right now. So the savings rate is extraordinarily we hit a peak in April when so many jurisdictions around the country were in lockdown where Americans on average saved thirty, three cents of every dollar they made putting us for the first time ever. In. A savings category with people across Asia who in Asia historically. People for every equivalent of a dollar, they make save a third of it. and. But for us very unusual, we've had times this century we're Americans have been negative net savers. Spending more than they actually make on average for the average American right now, saving a substantial amount of money. Now. There's a survey done by Gallup polling. That found that of Americans that are saving their money. They are overwhelmingly. Putting them in zero interest. Checking accounts are extremely low interest savings accounts. Now. That is terrible for the individual saving money because they're earning nothing on it. was great as they have that money. And it means when we get to the point. In twenty. One. When, we got the TRIFECTA. Of better treatments, better testing and a vaccine that steadily will spread through the population. The people that are reluctant to go out. And do things. And spend money and all the rest. Will have this huge reserve of money that will help the recovery in the economy for those that are suffering. So the parts of the economy that are pretty much dead in the water right now will be able to reemerge and the people who've saved so much money will be in a position to have a ready supply of funds to go resume activities. They've deferred. Air travel they didn't take vacations. They didn't do a events. They didn't attend that once we get. What I call the TRIFECTA of public health. Testing treatment and vaccines when we get those things going. That's when you'll see the economy be able to recover. One thing that is clear with these people who WHO HAVE MONEY that they've not had in the past? On the positive side paying down debt and a big way. Is Far as investing. There's been a lot of fear. Among people that are living on less than what they make using the money that they're building up to invest, and that's okay. You want to be able to sleep well at night and earning zero on your money, but knowing the money safe. Is a rational decision. You can make particularly with the market that is very heavily valued right now.

Ransomware slows down many students return to school, even virtually
"Number of US school district's already stressed by the unfamiliarity of distance learning systems whose used the covid nineteen pandemic has imposed on them are recovering from a range of cyber attacks. A few like distributed denial of service attack. The Miami Dade Public Schools sustained last week were essentially cyber enabled truancy. So easy a teenager could do it. W. P. L. G. sniffed haughtily a lot of teenagers we should note have experienced with bouterse some of it gained in their play of online games. But somewhere seems to have been more common. The case of the Hartford Connecticut Public Schools is representative a ransomware infestation forced delayed opening. Schools in Toledo Ohio and Clark County Nevada were among the larger systems. Similarly affected schools are reopening as they're able but Tuesday's planned first day was for many students disrupted. It's not difficult to see why schools have been appealing targets. ransomware operators are attracted to targets during periods of heightened vulnerability and schools attempting to operate either fully remotely or in some hybrid combination of distance and in-person instruction, present criminals and opportunity they depend upon high availability. They have a large number of users and difficult to control attack surface, and as we mentioned above, remote instruction remains an unfamiliar Process Complex and fraught with unfamiliar Challenges Planning and execution.
Mint Mobile launches cheap unlimited cell plan
"You know. So many of us per stretched and we're trying to make our budgets last through the month at a time that for many people incomes are down. So one area I'd like you to look at is how to attack your monthly expenses and one that a lot of just pay because that's what we pay is what we pay for cell phone service. So I want to give you a couple of choices on cell phone service that comes with unlimited data from two different companies one geared towards an individual paying for his or her own bill. In the second for people that are joining together with others. On a plan to save money. Let's start with the one for individuals. There's a company that runs really cute TV ads called met mobile. There was. So as a reseller, they bake pass the from the big three cell phone players, and then they sell their own branded service under the meant mobile name. Meant. Mobile is doing a deal right now on unlimited data plan where you've got unlimited talk text and data for a flat thirty dollars a month. But there's some hoops you have to jump through. So let's say you WanNa do this thirty dollars a month plan you could be on one that's significantly higher with others if you're doing unlimited data. What you do is you pay meant mobile for the first three months when you port your number and so you give them ninety bucks and it covers your cell phone service for the next three months. You hit the end of those three months. If you're happy with mobile, you can then by the next year from them at the thirty dollars a month. So, Ye end up having to give them three hundred sixty bucks. But then you know you have no cell phone bill for the whole next year is for the quality of the network with mobile. I never get complaints about that. Now that I've said that Oh hear from people who have complaints, but it is an alternative that can give you freedom from worrying about data overages. or data caps and no you're paying a flat thirty bucks. The other alternative is from verizon discount on a lot of people don't know verizon has a discount operator and people known for years. that. T mobile has metro. And Cricket is at and T.'s discounter but horizon acts like visible doesn't exist. But visible does exist is verizon's discounter and they have a plan called party pay. It's designed for two people together three people together or four people together. On a cell phone plan, but with a twist. If you just get a buddy or a relative or whatever to join you on visibles party Pay Plan Each of you were billed individually. So one person doesn't have to pay the whole bill and then chased the other people to pay them their portion of the bill each month. All they got to do is stay with visible together on their party. Pay Plan. So, two people get unlimited talk unlimited taxed unlimited data for thirty five dollars a month each three people, thirty dollars a month each and you got four people together twenty five dollars a month each. Again this is RISA NHS discount honor. You won't see it on Verizon's website. If you went to a verizon store, they wouldn't know what you were talking about. If you call verizon customer no service, they wouldn't know what it was. You have to go to the website visible dot com. And then you're in the money in the savings on for is network on a variety plan, but from their discount brand called visible.
Philadelphia Leaders Say Homeless Camps Are ‘Untenable'
"Officials are telling protesters to leave their encampments in Fairmount and North Philadelphia. For the district councilman who's who represents both neighborhoods. Those camps can't be shut down fast enough. Okay, one W. City Hall bureau chief Pat Lobe report. Chancel President Darryl Clark sees a paradox in housing advocates occupying land that could transform the quality of life of a black community that has suffered generations of disinvestment. The North Philadelphia and Campen is on the site of a planned $52 million project. It's a supermarket, a health centre and housing issue and cried black lives matter. You know, I kind of think this fits that mold on development that deals with all those disparities that is being built by an African American developer and Campen organizer's argued too much of the land is for parking, and there should be more than 92 units of housing. They have allies on City Council. Freshmen members. Kendra Brooks and Jamie got Ta say they think the encampment should stay. But Clark, who has represented Strict for 20 years. They're blocking a development already long overdue. Having minorities be involved in development and the minority communities have full access to all the things that are in other communities.

The unbalanced stock market, why you should take a long term approach
"People. Get really excited about what's going on with. Their stock market holdings when things are doing well, and then they freak out suddenly when a market reversal and I wanted to talk about. What is normally a very volatile month September? Has Traditionally been a month that has been unsettling for stock investors but the reality is there are special things you need to be mindful of with what's going on on Wall Street and has been going on all year as I shared with you a couple of weeks ago. A huge percent of publicly traded companies have had a bad year with their stocks that the gains have been very heavily concentrated. In, just a small number generally of technology oriented companies. It was an item just few days ago about apple that Apple's value having reached over two trillion dollars in market value. That apple's market values greater than the entire two thousand companies that make up the Russell two thousand index. So think about that one company. Having more value than another two thousand publicly traded companies all added together. and. So you have apple and Amazon and facebook and with Gul's name now alphabet. And Tesla these companies alone accounting for a crazy amount of star stock market value. And The value of these companies. Is. Extraordinarily high versus their profits and these are companies that have performed very well. Because of. Oh and I'm sorry Tesla's not on the list, the five or Apple Amazon Microsoft Bet and facebook even though. Tesla's much in the news today with the declining share price. But those companies. have. A huge valuation right now versus their profits because they have performed well over the last many years. But now the values have been bid up to the point that each of them are priced for absolute complete total perfection and life is not perfect and then you strip away. The small number of technology stocks that have had a massive run up. The rest of a stock market that generally is very weak. So. I if you're stockholdings or digital. And you have put a huge amount of money at risk. In a tiny number of technology stocks know that you've got to be able to handle the downs as well as the ups. These companies are rock solid companies that may be overvalued right now but you gotta think about what your time window is if your time window short for a stock. And you're in a technology stock that's value is really run up. There's danger in U continuing to hold that stock. If you're playing long ball, you're in the long game, then not as much risk but look what can happen. So quickly, Tesla down something like fifteen percent. In trading today and it's because of a couple of things involving Tesla's specifically but technology stocks again, that have runway up in value. Are, much, riskier in the short term. and. You have to plan for that and be prepared for that. But you know, I'm such a believer in diversifying holdings. And, that's why. I don't play the individual stock game. I know that for a lot of people with Robin Hood in particular. Younger. Investors. Are. Bored by the whole index game that they wanNA play the individual stocks and stock market and even getting involved in things like options and this is. A potential way to make money and a short window it's also potentially a place that you can lose money. It's more speculative than traditional investing in know that the. Quote Unquote. Stock Market the overall. Stock Market is due for. A potential correction. And potentially a bear market, but when that will happen. Who knows that's why the core and the key for you is you don't WanNa, borrow money known as buying stocks on margin. At a time where things are very heavily over-valued potentially. and. Second. You've got to know that owning stocks is a longer term thing. Not Short term I know there are people that are doing rapid trading buying and selling with great frequency if that's something you enjoy. Go for it. It's just not my way of thinking or my way of doing things.
"j clark" Discussed on The Candid Frame
"A mistake that many photographers make as they make a go at being a professional photographer. is believing that being a generalist is an advantage. Saying that you can photograph, anything doesn't leave impression with a client that you think it should make. Secondly. It leaves the photographer to be defined by what they're hired to do. Rather than by the work that they have a passion for. You may achieve financial success. But. It may not be the type of photography. Sings to your heart Alan Clarke had a clear idea of the kind photographer. He wanted to be and the kinds of photographs you wanted to make. Based in Nashville Tennessee his desire to be a photographer in the music. Industry could have led him to photograph. Country Music Stars. But. He didn't want his physical address to pigeonhole his photography or his aspirations. so He created his own path as a commercial editorial photographer resulting in a career that has allowed him to photograph the likes of Sir George Martin even. Hawk Bob Newhart and two former presidents. I hope this conversation demonstrates the importance of defining who you WanNa be and who you are as a photographer. This is about an annex and welcome back to the candidate frame. Are, I. Alan Welcome to the show. Thank you glad to be here so glad to get Nice Mike. Voice this should be. This is gonNA sound good? Stuff. You ever watched thirty rock now know. Alec, Baldwin and <hes> Will Arnett, both have amazing voices, and so they played that up a lot, and that's to our strengths as well so they had like a sexy voice off at one point. Close to each other, and be like I can do that and then they to be like. Yes, you can this. Man Gets. Today's the record this. The astronauts took off on the capsule and the rocket today and I know you're thinking. What you're talking about. You're saying. Neil. Armstrong! Yeah, it's a replica of his suit over a Hoodie. So Yeah I've completely nerd out today you've you've photographed a bunch of the of the suits. But where did the best nation begin? I think like most of us. You think of these images and you dream when you're a child like I was I wanted to be. An oceanographer wanted to be part of the cousteau. Society I wanted to be an astronaut and. Set in my second third grade class looked out the window and reflected on every port report card ever had. Would get these notes of our report cards to be like a you unsatisfactory. He just doesn't pay attention. He looks out the window constantly. That's what I got. Unsatisfactory what they had on the report Carsberg. Takes. A dreamer looks like when they're little. We have the album are recordings of the Apollo flight at my house, growing up so double album and it had pictures of the flight and I remember. I didn't think I really understood exactly what I was listening to just Kinda of thought, it will couple. At record on and just listened to it and look at looking at the pictures. I think it's probably still in my house somewhere. Let even though I don't have a record player anywhere near, let's. I, don't know I'm not one of those. Guys. Are. You saying you're not a hipster? Is that what you're saying? I think that by a couple of decades man I duNno, sometimes. My wife tells me their original hipster. Looking into some of this I'm like I. Don't know, but then I look at myself. When I do that. A you still have a record player and listen to things and she may be right. Working the idea that you want it to be able to photograph the spaces issue. Number of them have and you know I guess the idea came along Huntsville. Space and rocket center is only two and a half hours from Nashville so. have been going down there since I was a kid. My parents took me when I was little, and it just never stopped and something like a tradition. Take took my children there and. I've had photo shoots. Their showed up multiple times I. Don't think they. Enough to where they're sick of me, but it's pretty close. And just kept going there and going there, but then when I would do like photo shoots across. You know our great country. I would go to in in Boston there's A. Museum for JFK and I've been there and just seeing Johnson, space center in Houston of course, and all the different spots every time I get a chance I'll go and visit and just take my camera with me when I go, and my whole point is to just record these to record them like I would do it. Not like a tourist would try to actually light it really well, and sometimes you get permission to do these things, and sometimes you don't. But most of these things are on public display, and were American citizens, so we can kind of like just Bassani and people don't know this, but all all the museums in DC are all. All free to American citizens, because that's part of our taxes, and that's what it goes towards, and so you can kind of do anything you and requests, these types of things, so it started years ago through a space and rocket center, which was a privately funded thing, and it was on the redstone arsenal, the right next to the arsenal base course <hes> Verner von Braun worked out of Huntsville Developing Saturn five, and so it's steed like a weird thing like an Alabama of all places steeped in this rocket tradition. You know that know people just don't know about and they kind of had them. They're just to kind of hide them a little bit. Kept them safe there instead of putting them in a big city like DC or New York, but that's when the fascination started from as from a very early age, just repeatedly going down there and shooting these things and <hes>. You know on crappier cameras when I was little like instamatic disclaimer. Even growing up as a for NYKANEN.

"Him to even listen to you let alone take action on anything that you're telling him. Yeah absolutely true and maybe I should be a little more clear. It's like I don't in dealing with just me and another alcoholic. It's an entirely different dynamic in me dealing with my brother because I'm feeling that emotional bond and all about yeah and that's definitely clouds it and makes it really hard and it's me a a whole new way to understand what the family members are going through when when their loved ones. Because it's it's real easy to just to be there in that sponsor role and say well. Yeah I know what your problem is. You haven't screwed up your life enough yet. You know. It's not bad enough for yet as soon as he gets to drink a little right. That with your brother's really hard. Especially when they're calling and they're saying I'M GONNA be on the street and can you take me in and all this stuff and interesting if I don't then and and he dies or something happens you know. I have to carry that with me. You can't be that dispassionate. You know sounding board because you're dealing with people at an arms length like here's what you do do it or don't I'm not attached to it. Here's the solution. And then you you're not thinking about it the rest of the day. Yeah and it's been a process because that's kind of the way it's had to go and so our relationship isn't real good right now. You know but I was just telling my mom that You know he's he's got a he's got to be the architect of his own recovery and When that happens there's nothing. We won't do to help him but I can't tell him out. I mean I can tell him how I did it. I can share with them how I did it. I can tell them what I thought what I felt and point them in the right direction but ultimately you know he's the truth comes from within. It's it's something we find from the outside and bring into our lives. It's it's something that was always there that we just kind of discover. Yeah and I think that It's important for family members out there. Who are we're dealing with this to understand that? That's very different from trying to console a family member into getting sober to get you off their back. That's not willingness. That's a temporary band aid. That will not hold ultimately. I mean there's of course. There's the the occasion where you know you do an intervention. And somebody begrudgingly. Goes INTO REHAB. And then they get it when their in their But the more typical cases you know it doesn't stick because they're not ready not being driven by their own desires being driven by the fear and the love of family members who are desperate. Yeah Yeah So. It's complicated and as crazy creatures. So what was that moment in August that tip the scale for you you know? It was just I think it was. We kind of talked about before you know alarm bells you know and I kind of a aware of each time. My drinking and my my use was Going to a new level of destruction and and That morning there was just something really heavy about it. And I think that I think that that was going to be significant day for me one way or the other and I think I was gonNA either entirely give up and just go go about the process of of ending it. You know maybe slowly maybe quickly or I was going to stand up and start to fight and And I just felt like I had that that one one one shot at one little glimpse and and just jumped on before I could think about it. I I've related to jumping out of a car. You know like I was driving in a car and and I thought I was driving the car and taking it to all these nice places and one day I realized I was in the passenger side and I had no control or where the car was going and Kinda hung out there for a while too. And it's like okay. Well we'll just see where the things going. And then that that day I just opened the door and I jumped out and before I could even think about it like all the time I tried to. You know rapid into this perfect thing that made sense. You know wrestle every demon down to a perfectly you know understandable thing and it never worked. Obviously I had to trust the process. And you know it's Kinda just like talking about running one hundred miles or something like that. You can't get to that place where you're doing some run and trying to convince yourself why it's a good idea because it's not right you gotta run. And that's that's what I did with the recovery. I just just took the moment and kept moving forward right and know what you learn. Recovery is that you're always in the passenger seat automatically and it's it's when you think that you're in the driver's seat or you try to take the wheel that you end up veering off into the wrong direction. And that's that's you know kind of an ephemeral idea that we could spend hours talking about but but just that's part of the surrender of realizing like not only am I not in control like there are very few things that I can control. One of them is whether I drink or not today breath. Most things you know are pretty much beyond my reach and it's interesting that that the day that you had that moment was not you know after a car wreck or being put in jail. I mean it was similar with knee like it was a really uneventful morning like in terms of like events. That had happened to me. You know nothing you know. I was hung over but it wasn't on the heels of anything super traumatic but there was just it was different. You know woke up and I was like I'm going to die I'm ready. Yeah like I'm ready. Or or or yeah. There's no turning back you know. It was very inexplicable. It wasn't you know UNICORNS and rainbows and angels but I still would qualify as you know a spiritual experience no doubt because it was it. It came out of nowhere. It wasn't it wasn't triggered by any particular event triggered by the accumulation of many years. Terrible things but that little gift of willingness just sort of materialized. It's funny because I I asked for help that day and I probably ask for help before but it was always just some sort of exercise and melodrama you know and wanting to be pitied. More than anything. Alcoholics are good at that. Oh yeah but I meant it. I meant at that time. I felt that the real nece that I was not able to do this anymore and I was totally powerless. You know I was. I was in over my head. I was getting my ass kicked in. It wasn't GonNa get any better and and I felt myself giving up that. Was I think that was the most scary thing is? I felt myself like always kind of had a little bit of fight. You know I'm GonNa figure this out one day and you know he's had envisioned that their intervention and they'd send me after Rehab. I'd come back and everything it'd be great and But I felt I all of that was gone. You Know I. I didn't even have any visions of getting better anymore and I didn't like that feeling. I didn't like the idea of giving up but you've never been to a meeting before it wasn't like you would kind of made fits and starts or tried. I've been to a lot in fact Usually what would happen is I would. There'd be one of those those bad days like that should be your bottom right. I'd wake up and not remember where my car was. And and you know just have so bad. That's really wasn't but or like the the time I talked about the book where I was vomiting out of my truck when no driving home. That should have been. That should have been my last day. You know I should said Oh shit. I didn't kill anybody today. Let's let's let's jump this rollercoaster now but I would have one of those mornings and I and I and I would wake up and I'd go to Aa that night. And I'd go see I knew it. I don't have a problem having anything in common with any of these people you know these are the guys at the problem and I. It was like an affirmation or an excuse to go drink. Some more and briefly did talk about in there where I talked about the the time I really did go to a meeting and I've found what I did have in common with all those guys which is you know alcohol obviously namely It was it was the same experience we talking about with sleep. How could you do something over and over again and never experienced it And I've been to probably fifteen or twenty eight meetings and they just never meant anything to me and I mean I tried to do the ninety and ninety five or six different he did. I think I made three or four days. And then it'd be like I own a company you know Shit. I was court ordered so I did it for that reason and I was. Just yeah it was okay and I was well intentioned when I went I was going to get sober. You know but then you just I was kind of a tourist intellectualize the whole thing. I get it. I understand like I'm not going to do all this writing stuff down. I don't need to like I can make that list my head so I've done that onto the next thing like I've solved this problem and of course that didn't work. You know you have to have your you know you gotTa go through all those experiments I think and I think people you know a lot of people out there that don't they don't know that they don't know how non-linear the journey to recovery is for ninety nine percent of the people that are sober out there they think they go to rehab in their fine or go to a and everything changes or a therapist or whatever you know version. It is but it's usually a lot of ups and downs. And relapses and you know. People are always surprised. When somebody relapses but that's the natural state of the alcoholic. The miracle is that all those days that they didn't drink you know there's they're like they're wired drink. We're wired to drink so every day that you don't is the gift absolutely nine years and it's a good start. It's amazing congratulated could start. Yeah that's fantastic rotations very cool. So let's talk about the weight thing. Yeah so you got fat. Hell man hundred and twenty pounds three twenty. Yeah Yeah I mean looking at you now. It's really hard to picture that. I saw the pictures in the book. But you know you were a big boy. Yes House before. I knew it had anything to do with running then eating drinking whatever and it's funny because I have people say to me you know isn't all that running bad for your knees and I always say you know waiting in line for my third big Mac and three hundred twenty pounds bad for my knees but yeah I No food was the same thing you know what I mean. The process was was pretty much identical between what was going on with my weight and what was going on with drinking and I didn't think about food is anything other than making me feel good. You know that's what it was four. And even though I knew better at some intellectually I knew better I could have written it out for you and told you exactly how all this stuff works but didn't matter because that's not how I saw food and and it's funny because I talk a little bit about their in that that I had this concept of food and who is thin who is fat and I had all of course figured out. I had everything figured out. Exactly how everything worked but let me tell you but I would see three hundred twenty fifth of you know Bourbon. This be well. You know. That's interesting because I remember my dad and you know how it works like your family members. They WanNa let you off the hook right. They don't want a lot of times for for the the high bombers. If you will the ones that didn't end up on the street you know Especially if it had a a level of success at some point in your life your family wants to believe they wanted to let you off the hook and they don't WanNa thank you have a problem and you drink too much. Obviously you need to stop that. But there's nothing wrong with you. You know that because then it becomes a reflection of. Yeah Yeah Yeah but I told my dad was like you know I used to have this this concept of like well yeah. I'm overweight and yeah drink too much but other than that. I got life figured out and I realized the stupidity and the insanity of that now you know and I like to say you know. I wasn't overweight. I wasn't an alcoholic. I was broken. I was broken human being the food the alcohol. That was a symptom. You Know I. I didn't know how to live life at all. Had No idea how to live. Life had no idea how to be happy. I had no idea how to sit and just be still and the food and the drugs and the alcohol was just something I can do in the meantime because I couldn't be still. Yeah that's the other thing that that that I think. A lot of people aren't really fully in touch with that. That alcohol is the solution for the alcoholic can tell it's the problem and the alcohol and the effects of alcohol on the alcoholic are symptomatic manifestation of a disease. That's really kind of a spiritual malady it's like. There's something wrong with this person drinking alcohol or taking drugs solve that temporarily until it stops working and.

"Now. I'm going to play some of your answers to last week's question. I really didn't know what to expect from this. And after listening to all of your messages I was kind of overwhelmed by your honesty vulnerability and courage. You reminded me why I started this podcast. So thank you. It's on ink. You so much for calling. So my first question is to whom would you most like to apologize? And why I just want to start up and say Alger shows since the very beginning on actually a mail carrier so you keep me laughing. Move during this creepy time. The person I think I most like apologize. Mostly my dad. When I was a teenager I was so hard on him. And if I could go back I would change all that. 'cause my parents are my favorite people in the whole world? I would most like to apologized by son because hey super through and for much of his adolescent and Teen Years. I wasn't there for him and that wasn't figure he tells me. It's okay it's up to you by and painful so that's most like to apologize to. I would most love to be able to apologize to my ex husband to. I had an affair on eight years ago and I wish there were a way that I could apologize to him and to my children in a way that they would understand may better. I just felt forgiveness is the best thing and I don't want him to forgive me for what I've done. I would just like to see him forgives to the he could move forward and his on his journey. I most I apologize to felt for all the years of self hate and negative self talk and everything like that all the time. I spent of meal plotted tears. That have been shed and all the relationships. I run and just all the wonderful moments I missed out on because I was just too busy. Focus on what I can look like I would choose both of my grandfathers who passed away one when I was eighteen and one two years ago. I never got to say goodbye to them. Even though I had the feeling in the back of my head that I should have said goodbye and I am sorry to them which I never got that chance. I would most like to apologize. Might Son launched him in July of two thousand seventeen He's lost his battle with depression and bipolar disorder and took his own life. And I wish that I would have done more to get more help to get him. Someone more to talk to and I feel like I didn't do enough to help him and I would like to apologize to him for that. I would like to power guy the moment to my parents and my sister the band trying to mazing support for me for my whole life and about a year and a half ago. I got divorced and started seeing somebody who was very bad for me. gone into drugs partying and things. I never was a part of before. I've always been very responsible anyway. I lied to my parents consistently about my youth and pretty much. Avoid them for a long time and my family never turn their backs on me. The held me out many times not from jail thankfully but financially and Just were there for me. When I finally ended their relationship I could never apologized to them and they know that they saying I don't mean to say I'm sorry but I could never deal with the fact if anything happened to them naked. Know How sorry I was how much I am so sorry for I. I would bikes. I apologize to myself which might sound selfish or Corny but I think a lot of times people forget to give themselves the grace that they give others and so I'm apologizing to myself for slots of negative self talk and negative thoughts. Thank you so much for being a light in my world and I hope you have a great day.

"Just get a bunch of movie directors sitting around talking. Why do I feel like Brian Depalma? I know what about the Volvo? I don't know would dominate. I think it's because you feel that way because every photo of Brian Depalma he's wearing a safari suit. They've dress like he's dressed like a safari. That's why I'll east prepared in a different way okay Anybody Else Peter Bogdanovich Bogdonovich other who? I got to meet a few months ago for like. Yeah just for like five minutes but it was great. He's so he's so deford smart. Yeah in one word. How would you like to be remembered? Kind that's great. Okay your big professional wrestling. This is what it says on your thing that I have in front of me. So maybe you aren't. Are you a huge professional wrestling fan? Yes okay so let's say I'm thirteen. I KINDA WANNA go. But also my friend is having a sleepover. How would you win me over will it? Would it would match have to offer? What does professional wrestling have to offer that? I haven't experienced yet. Will they have corn dogs at the arena? I don't know if that Sweden's of the share I like a corn dog. I think it's something that had to grab you as a kid like I. I loved it when I was like five years old. It's like the first thing I ever recall watching. I don't have a real scientific answer for why I liked it but there seemed to be just based on when I go to the shows. It seems to mostly be other thirty five year old guys. They're so like there was definitely a moment in time. It's probably simple just like Hulk Hogan you know what I mean like. There's just some characters that like grab you as a child. And then you're hooked. Do you think there's a correlation between your love of Comic Book Superheroes and Professional Wrestling Hundred pursuit? Yes they're both very definitive. There's good guys bad guys and there's like sometimes external forces or whatever but there aren't too many shades of Grey right in my cry yet yet in it's also both extremely violent but there's no repercussions for the violence like nobody really dies in the comics like the if wrestling was real they'd just be covered in bruises and blood and stuff so yeah. I'm sure there's absolutely some correlation there like little boys just like violence to maybe but I wonder if there's if there's certainty and comfort in like oh I recognize a bad guy. Oh I recognize a good guy. Yeah I think you're making some smart connections because the lack of shades of gray is exactly what's comforting Missing from real life. I'm sure the reason I like it now is partly you know nostalgia. It's like comfort food because it was like this thing I loved as a Kid. I got out of it after college. I really stopped. Didn't really watch it much after high school but then when we were promoting the first hot tub time machine mean cordray got to rob corddry not make cordray got to we get to guest host. Monday night raw and so I hadn't watched the show in quite a few years at that point we actually. The the one movie came out in a I think March so the one that we get to guest host was the day after wrestlemanias so they sinister Wrestlemainia in Phoenix and then the show the next night for raw Anna I had such a blast and I befriended a lot of the wrestlers is. They're all the same age as me and I was like. Oh this is wild. This thing really loved like now. It's like guys doing it to like a couple of the guys like the Mizzen doffed Sigler like. I've been friends with those guys for like a decade. That's awesome yeah. I have a seven year old boy. And he's you know he's all about like the violence and the but it is interesting that the idea like safe violence but I don't know are you hesitant to let him watch wrestling or no. That awful no. I don't think so I think no if I had a seven year old I take into wrestling. You can't. I'm a big believer in that. Like you really can't shield kids. Hide kids from too much because like there's nothing more vulgar filthier than like other children like remember always thinking. It was so silly that they didn't want kids to watch rated R movies and I'm like have you ever been around like a group like eleven year olds. They're just like saying the filthiest stuff like like you're never going to like. I don't know like I I remember in. This is part of why I probably wanted to be a director and gut like in do a movies. My mom just told the local video store like let them read whatever he wants. So like. I remember like watching like reservoir dogs in boogie nights and like all this stuff that absolutely should not have been watching. But I don't think it like ruined. I don't think I'm like scarred for life or anything. I want to talk about your movie. Arkansas would you tell me a little bit about it? Yeah Okay so Arkansas is. It's from a book adapted Also called Arkansas by John Brandon to great book McSweeney published it. I read it like like I said like ten years ago and just loved it because the dialogue was so good at reminded me of like Elmore Leonard or you know Tarantino or something like that. It's a it's a crime story kind of like a Coen brothers tone type of thing about this drug kingpin Arkansas from the eighties to the president. That Vince Vaughn plays in the present day me and Liam Hemsworth play these two very handsome One slightly more haste than than the other guys who work at the bottom tier of a Vince Vaughn's organization in through like a series of mishaps. We screw up so bad that basically he has to kill us and we the on like this collision course. That SOUNDS AMAZING. That when you have like such great actors in the smaller budget that kind of brings out the best I think. Yeah like we're all in this together like putting on a show thing. Yeah the this the only the acting stuff was a pleasure because everybody named office so good and like Vivica Fox John Malkovich in Michael Williams. Like like everybody in the movies really good so that made it really easy a lot of ways but the stuff that so hard that. I didn't know before just because I had made a movie before. Cedeno is like if you don't have any money or time like don't try to do stuff in cars. Don't try to like action so hard like there's so much stuff in the movie that Not like super qualified to do. But we did it somehow but You know it's basically you need money or time in like we didn't have either but it worked. Did you shoot in Arkansas? We showed a little bit in Arkansas. So I was GonNa Shoot the whole movie in Arkansas and the While we were there location scouting the state told us they couldn't give us the tax credit which is like the difference in like a million dollars or something which I like a quarter thirty your budget so we ended up going to Alabama but we did shoot a little bit in Arkansas. Some of the the locations that just don't exist anywhere else like. There's these famous bath houses in downtown hot springs from from that we got that we film there the one we filmed is actually a museum so that was pretty cool. Did you enjoy editing? I enjoyed editing for a while and then I was like I hate editing. A hate like everything in kind of came back around and enjoying it again at the end endings rough just because you you lose you just lose the forest for trees like there's a point that like there was a point that I'm like I don't know if the movie's good I have the movie may suck. I have no reaction to the movie. Like 'cause you've just I've seen it so many times I could recite the entire movie right now memory. So it's like I don't ever need to see it again because it's like seared in my brain at this point. I would imagine that going through the decision process. And maybe there's an expression like the love of but I don't building crafting the story especially when you have great performances. I think this is the reason that I have such A. I'm so impressed by like Steven. Soderbergh who edits his own stuff. Because the thing that I learned was I need some wouldn't a is smarter than me. I'm better at this than May em- be is not is attached to it like you need some object. Tivoli that comes from his me like having written at directing it begin at you know. There's a tendency to be like we can't cut death. That took eight hours to shoot. You know what I mean and like you can't think like that in the editing because that doesn't matter so like having like my editor Patrick Don Vito which is the best name. And he's the best guy he did A. He had just done green book which won Best Picture. Right before heated my movie so like I very much trusted his opinion on stuff and it was nice to have him there and he's really talented but it was nice to have somebody that I will definitively thought like okay. This person knows more than me about this. Like TRUST THEIR OPINION. They only have the movies best interests in mind. It looks beautifully shot. It just looks. Yeah it is it Yeah our has got him Stephen Mayes Ler who is heated godless for net flicks. Or if you saw that. But he's a really brilliant. We used we use almost no lights in the movie. Which is pretty crazy select. That was the other way that we shot the movie in like twenty five days is there is no lights. And what time of year was it? It was Like September October November. But it was in Alabama so it was really hot in for the last week. It was freezing. Cold like switch flip has beautiful like lushness to. Yeah I was actually after that luscious. 'cause there's like we`re. I want to have that kind of sticky green feeling that the south has freaking here. Cicadas I put A. I inserted a ton of cicadas in the in the background of loss. Do you have a favorite rainy day movie that you can watch again again? I WanNa know like more of the guilty pleasures. You WanNa know like the comfort food like yeah the easily digestible. I guess yeah mine would be a saving Silverman. That's a great one. Yeah I love Saving Silverman. I've watched it like a million times on cable. It always is paired with a movie. I did sex drive. Which made me really happy. Yeah who wrote sex? Drive John Anderson John Morris. Like I know I'm dealing I'm too. I'm too old to have auditioned. I don't I it was I mean there was like two thousand eight or something. I don't I don't know there's a long time ago isn't Amanda Peet. So yeah she's everything. I that such a good vibe. I would say my other like movie that if it's like the in that vein that if it's on I just stop and watch like casino the AD. That's a good one. That's my favorite movie period. I think I haven't seen like that. Choice Yeah Sheeran stowed in. That movie is one of my all time performances by anybody ever he she's magnetic you can't not watch her with the cast like that she still continues to just oh she does everyone away buyer. Nobody can keep up with her. That movie She's unbelievable. And everything like the wardrobe in the production design like that movie. Just perfect the music. That's a good one because I often think of like a sick day. Movie is lighter fare but the great thing about casino is that it's deliciously heavy or it's still palatable it's not sophie's choice like you can you know it. Goodfellas is like the two are both a becker. Not as much. But they're both will watchable both a lot of fun assulin fun. Yeah.

"It all. I mean I'll just make shit up that soundscape. Just assume I. Don't know anything at all times. If, you could live anywhere in the world for a year. Where would it be? I'd like to live in New York. I haven't really worked there or spend a lot of time. They're like I've got to like making movies. I've got to live. You know a lot of cool places Miami in Vancouver Toronto in Atlanta. The New Orleans and really fun to live in, but I have never really spent any amount of time in New York and I'd really like to get to live in London for three months one time, but never never New York I've only been in New York, a handful of times that I always think it's so cool and I'm their. Only shot there a couple of times, but it would not be accurate. If I started launching into the saying like Oh Clark, he would love New York. Lovin you. I don't know if I would love. It I kind of I kind of figure. I wouldn't like stay, but I would like to try. What has been the most stressful experience of your life? Professionally the period where it was like right before we were gonNA know if we could make this movie or not. It was like this horrible weeks or months on process of like waiting to see if you had cast financing, your cast is so incredible, and like in putting those pieces together feels like what are the impossible puzzles that scattered out like in the living room right now. I would imagine with everyone's schedules and. It's and nobody. Nobody's getting. Nobody's doing this for money like it was a very much a small indie film If anybody's doing because they want to do the movie, but yeah, it's like all right. You've got John Malkovich. Has this week free in October like okay itsel Rad but it. It isn't impossible puzzle like it's. It's really a miracle that anything ever gets made I. Know I've been trying to try to make this for so long. Like option the book that is based on like ten years ago. Do you know what I've options? There was this article in the Los Angeles Times may a decade ago, maybe more, it was called like Earth. Girl Jen this girl up Ohi who would stand on the street corner with these tassels on just hassles a bikini bottom, and she would twirl the tassels around and be like go, or the tussles are under nipples. into the older members of the Ohio community were get girl Jen Outta here.

Like Five, thousand for how long no I'm sad to say. Clark negotiations didn't go much. I like like adapting stuff, so you adapted a book the You likes. Strategy. Will you never know I mean they're making a movie, but Angelina just heard the other day. Oh really yeah. No I think they already Things are. It was oh honestly. You would have been fucking great Angelino. Well It's I forget who it is, but I saw they've cast somebody. Takes back. What are the best jokes I've ever made was a in an interview. Somebody asked me what's like the one role. You really heartbroken. You didn't get and I was like. Well on the muppet show. It was down to me and Kermit. The Frog and they ended up going with Kermit the frog. Like, that's the. That's the best joke everybody. Oh God Oh. What haven't you taken the time to learn about I mean? Almost everything probably. You know what I wish I knew and I actually was thinking about getting a book is a I feel like I should know more about engines in cars work in general. Really what I do. You have that kind of mechanical Curia. Yeah just just curiosity, and it just seems crazy that like like my bought in remodeled this old house in like twenty thirteen I kind of enjoyed lake, the rebuilding of like just learning.

"So how was that? How'd you get that you just went to the bank and leased it? Or how did that go for you? That's a huge deal now so Honestly Rockwell has always been a rich. I don't know if you know by know rich. A little bit so rich has always been a really good friend of mine and really supportive of the team and everything. I've tried to do to this day still So he had the semi. It was his semi okay. So basically that was you know Rockwell's contribution back then it wasn't rockwell though it was A whole different litany of things like it with kingdom crown clothing at one point. It was a shoe company at one point. It was bike sellers. Do you remember by Ya? Yeah right that was his His deal too so at at one point I did buy the tractor but it was still his trailer. Okay like I. I bought a new tractor. Maybe going into seven so so it. It was more difficult because obviously you let the logistics of putting a semi on the road are Ta They honestly handled back then. I think I handled everything as far as like you know the dot numbers and the permits and fuel tax and all that but He's always been very helpful with with outside of it too. So how many issues did you have a truck drivers over the years? Oh quite a few. I mean yeah. I had some of the truck drivers so that we've had are like some of the greatest people to So I mean Rick Williams drove for me Back in Gosh I wanNA say like Oh six. Oh seven somewhere in there. He went onto graves Yamaha. And he's a super good guy and was a super loyal trustworthy guy Jed Mingo was my original transport driver and he actually passed away in a plane. Crash Private Plane Crash During the season on your I don't remember that yeah it was It was crazy and But yeah truck. Drivers are a different breed For sure what truck drivers everyday on my job I guess and I am and I have my cdl so you know we all our own. Exactly now I just I just know that. A lot of private teams have have issues with truck drivers. It's just it's a standard deal either. They don't really know either. They think the job is driving the truck which it's so much more or they are Weirdos. God knows you know. So that's been really. I've been fortunate. I I have very dull strove for me to now Yamaha. Factory truck driver But I mean honestly if I could just touch on one thing real quick and that of all the things in the sport that that I personally accomplish those are cool but the best part about it for me has been seeing a lot of these guys that started with me grow into these really high powered roles and and seeing their development. So I mean I could go back to like air. Gas with my intern. So whistling at 'em when my JR Boyd worked for team? Solitaire for Justin Buckle I mean Kevin Strict Word. I went to PC. Aaron Johnson You know he like early team solitaire. Stephens Yeah Yeah exactly And the list goes on and on. I mean there's There's a lot of guys that have gone on to really good. You know positions and careers. Then it's not that we had a ton to do with that they were going to do that without us but it was cool that we recognize You know that these guys are great guys and and hopefully help them develop a little bit further. And then you know and I'm on to the next thing so are you this whole time. You're running this. Are you walking away with money at all The years that I was doing well in racing. I tried my very best to keep as much as I could. Separate put my own money in it. I mean there's no I mean really not really I mean but I was doing okay financially The thing that killed me was just the timing of like every guy that's ever been divorced that killed me But that coincided with The two thousand eight economic downturn so I had a non payment of A two hundred thousand dollar deal so When with Rondo but you know what like if you could script it any better. I mean it's like race team has non payment from fictional energy drinks. Can I have not seen that Exactly made up from a drink from was it. Where was it from? Where was it from It was from idiosyncrasies. That's it yes. Yes Mike John Doe Rhonda Thirst later. I mean what a great fricken sponsor though I mean it was so cool the first year. I didn't have any issues you know with them. They were awesome payments. Were on time and the second year contract with You know a quarter million dollar contract and I got payment one out of it. And here's where here's where I kinda struggle I? I did everything. They could pay every single person that whole year. That was out of my personal money because I mean we got and I mean that's what ruined. That's what ruined financially and I mean there was still it took me. I think to pay a couple of guys off like I owed Phil Nicoletti money for like two years and I was paying him like two hundred dollars a month. You know what I mean. It's like it was tough man hard. It's hard because I knew the physician they were in but at the same time that it was just putting the in that position to do. Yeah Yeah I remember. Jt's team didn't get paid by DNA and they all got stock nece worthless companies. Awesome Great. Thanks you know. It's that's part of the deal so in one way Ryan like it's funny because you had finished ninth overall and forty super cost which is which is way awesome and you've got all these great results and in one way like if your just on a team make personally money contingency all of that. You're making more money and probably less stress in your life but on the other hand. Maybe you're not running the suspension company. Or maybe you're not able to do to the bikes what you want on a some lower team and you don't do as well. It's six one half dozen on the other. You know what I mean. Yeah that goes yeah. I think big picture wise though it was big it was bigger than that. It was if I hadn't done that team solitaire thing. I don't think I'd be able to function at the level. I do in the company that I'm okay. Yeah Yeah Yeah you know. It was all the budget stuff. It was the design. Stop Learning to build a website. Learning Illustrator Photoshop getting permits with the city. And all of those things that I mean. Now I mean this last month in my my job I mean I'm processing millions of dollars of pay applications for these huge companies every month like I would. There's no way if I was just a dirt bike racer and I would be able to grasp you know the the budget side and I've learned so much from working in the in the field that I do now that I could bring back apply to the race team that I currently you know your md land and It just it just gives me great perspective I am I. I wouldn't want it to end in the other way because I mean in the end you know I really like were amount in my life. I mean I have an amazing wife that I met you know in twenty ten when she was doing. Pr For for American Suzuki Dungy. Oh cool and And I mean that you know I I have four kids. You know to with my first wife and my wife now and I'm just super pleased with where we're at and I'm you know like I said I'm able to not just get a job after racing start a career. Yeah Dude I do a lot of these guys who were lost. You know guys who are wandering around trying to figure out what to do when the music stops and their injuries rack up and the writings done and it's not easy you know so. Yeah if you don't have the challenge. I mean I experienced that too like you want that competitive side but more than anything. You need the community. I think is what kind of keeps you saying? And and I have my My work friends now and stuff that are you know? It's it's Kinda that same feeling. I have the guy that you know we feel like on a weekend when we're doing a big shutdown or You know closing intersections building out. You know all these infrastructure You know scopes work like we're going to war like it was you know we've got forty eight hours to get this road back open and do all these things so it's cool. It's challenging and It makes me look back and really appreciate my life though. I've led a very blessed life and and relatively injury free. I mean I'm pretty pain. Free Right now. None of my old injuries really bother me. I had a quite a few concussions. That's the only thing I worry about. you know anybody that were that? Akzo carbon-fiber Helmet back in the day. Probably the same with me so that was cool. Though it was it was cool. It looks cool cool. Ira stuff. There was a race in Ohio that Brian Twinkling when he was on on Troy. Honda try and I. I almost beat him in one moto in the I mode on the ones. I've climbed that he got me with two laps race. It was the Delta Chicken Festival. Second Moto I was wearing a helmet. I mean I was wearing it. I motor cross. We're in it's second. Second Motor went into the first turn in las my front end and woke up like five minutes later. I crash hard. It was like just done. Where was where was the weirdest place? You went racing in the off season. What was the off season? I I went to Argentina. Yeah Yeah with Oh God with Vallejo and I went down and then there was a guy from England and a few other people like Israel with their From you know he was obviously from South America. But we got there and they picked us up and They brought a straight to a whorehouse. They're like any journal. You want you just choose. We got you covered and I like Nano Manam cool. I gotTA friend. I'm not really into that like Nano. Who got you man? Whatever you want no problem and so how am I? Okay so you know I. I picked up on like Hey do you mind if we just talk? Is that cool? Yeah but you don't want to go places you don't want to be disrespectful but like This is a lot different than what I'm used to. This is how they bond. Maybe so but I went down there I rode for Yamaha. I went down there and they had a Honda for me. I brought my suspension and everything. They're like Oh yeah we'll have a brand new Yamaha..
"j clark" Discussed on Dog Tales
"Traveling from Pittsburgh to the Pacific Ocean wasn't easy especially when you're doing it in the dugout canoe on the ninth of June twenty-seventh eighteen o five. The men of Lewis and Clark's corps of Discovery rested that tired bodies along the banks of the Missouri River. It was a welcome respite after a long day of traveling. The sleeping men were so exhausted. They had no idea. An intruder was in their midst. Under the cover of darkness a Grizzly bear came into camp lured by bison meat that had been hung up to dry if it decided it wanted to snack on some humans there would be no stopping. It unaware of the looming danger. The explorers continue to does however one member of the expedition was alert and awake as the grizzly eight. It's fill a black streak emerged. From the night furiously barking it was meriwether. Lewis Dog Seaman. The Sudden Commotion Woke The men and they scrambled for their weapons but there was no need. Despite weighing ten times less than the grizzly seaman refused to back down after a tense standoff. The bed assigned it. The dog wasn't worth the effort and trundled back into the darkness. Once the danger had passed semen relaxed and culled up next to his master but he had to remain alert. The expedition still had thousands of miles to go and it was up to semen to keep them safe..

"You so much for your time today and welcome to the show Richard. I'm glad to be here. Thank you so much. Yeah it's great aac to be talking to you again. I I met you when I was fifteen demo pilot a few years ago and I remember seeing your performance back then and what was the MO party thirty four which is now the tempest t thirty four. And so. It's so great to see that you've done so well through all these years and continue in your your exciting and thrilling air show. I feel so blessed I I it'll be by. I've had the best career as an airline pilot and air show pilot and always have a front row seat with a window so I feel so blessed to have been able to do what I really truly love to do and that was to fly and I knew that as a little kid that that's when I wanted to do for a living in the way you fly your airplane in the way you fly your airshows. Your joy of aviation just really shines through as it does in your out of the cockpit Engagements with people and personalities and so I always appreciated that Through the years of watching you perform in and out of the cockpit. Well thank you for that. You know all the people are what make the air shows Happen you know we wanNA take care of the people who wanna come see the pilots and see the airplanes and We're so blessed that we have the freedom to be able to just put on Air shows and You know wave the airspace so that we can Show at airplanes are capable of doing and you of all people leading the thunderbirds. I I know you know what I'm saying rain without the air shows and the fans we wouldn't have these great events. Yeah we'll let all that flying in over fifty years of flying and then not just to have fifty years of safe flying but in forty years of that to be doing it and so low. Low altitude aerobatic. Airshow performance is really remarkable. People you must have had a few situations where things got a little tense. I have I know and you really right. I my next really been hanging out there. So I'm very proud of this master the award because to be also. I didn't really know much about the award until they contacted me. So somehow they keep track of how lying and and Whether whether there's a a rap sheet on you or not to get that phone call From the FAA that they were awarded. Meat is fifty years of safe flying. And you're right with my neck hanging out I've had a few moments where it was questionable. As to how it was GONNA end up so Julia you're sharing with us An event you had at an air show in Vacaville. You hadn't been in the industry that long and so our audience can appreciate the kind of environment that you have flown in safely for for more than forty years. You came in when you were allowed to fly get a competence in Arabic competency card that allowed you to fly airshows down onto the surface. Is that correct. That's correct. I never really had a limitation in altitude In those days you know. I've got my ace card. What they weren't uncalled Eighth Cardin? What was it called is to build a fly. Air Shows a low level. Waver I guess that's all they called it the little waiver cards what would they would say. Yeah that makes sense. And so You're allowed to do air. Show aerobatics in sanitize airspace alway down to the surface. And you're doing it in not twenty eight. Which is a horse of an airplane right? It's got that big massive engine out front with the controls at takes a great deal of effort to roll in Maneuver Nouveaux that thing especially at slower speeds so talk to us a little bit about what. It's like to fly an airplane like that at low altitude departed at airplane. I really hated was if you've been blinked. You're out of trim. There was something about it and also you could really gain a lot of speed real quick but then you put that nose vertical and and that speed would bleed off so quickly that then you come back over the outside. Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh there I am just wondering you know I never got that low but there were times when I got my attention of about finishing maneuver because you pick up the speed quick but you gobble it up so quickly and then you point the nose north again and the speed is bleeds. Aw that's the only thing about the t twenty eight that was very challenging to me and also just out of trim all the time. I'm talking to Bob. who were about die said how you fly that airplane every time I fly them so trim you just kind of try to ignore and I said I can't it's just a trimming mother scratcher it just really to me it wasn't that great of an airshow airplane. Not Three four to me is much more forgiving Interesting so that that big heavy airplane and especially being added Trim your low to the ground and for audience when you're doing these aerobatic maneuvers when you fly. Inverted your controls are essentially reversed. So if you want to climb you have to push the stick forward towards your dash to climb up away from the ground when you're inverted and if you hold back on the stick you're GonNa go closer to the ground which is exactly backwards of normal flying. It sure is an I instructed for a year in the navy as a civilian instructor N.. T thirty four's kind of how I became acquainted and kind of attracted to the airplane. Never Dreaming I own one in the civilian life but like I used to tell my students you get inverted verdict and luckily you're not low altitude but low altitude. You really gotta think about for some reason I said I wanna I wanNA feel that stick against my leg the whole time the whole time but for some reason it's just so natural that they get inverted and they neutralize the controls and now the role stops and they kind of panic and then what's the first they do they pulled back on the stick so it's just kind of a a deadly thing that can be bad if you don't have altitude below us when you're instructing aerobatics I always make sure there's plenty of altitude you too. Yeah so you're you're at Vacaville leader in this beast of an airplane. The t twenty eight and you're going to do some low altitude aerobatics set it up for for some there. What happened okay? This is nineteen eighty two and I actually was flying. My t thirty four at the nut tree airshow Vacaville when when this happened and I was doing a four-point appoint role low level and I remember this one tree. That was there. I thought maybe just what they call the nut tree but the seat slid all the way back and there I was inverted and Headed for the ground thinking. Oh my gosh you know I was able to Aileron back but I had absolutely no rudder control my feet. Were just far from the rudder pedals. Because that seat's all all the way to the back I can imagine so your inverted your seat slips to the back and that would seem to be natural you're holding on to the stick says your seat slips away you might want to put pressure on the stick which would pull it towards you. Put the aircraft it towards the ground right at low altitude. I didn't really pull so back much on on the stick as I just rolled it wings level just as fast as I could because then that seat went back it was just such a bang. It just really made a big bang and a and I was back where I couldn't reach the rudder pedals so Because it happened so quickly I was able to AOL over but it sure got my attention and I didn't finish my show show. I came back and landed right away and of course they were asking me what happened and explained and So they had me come up on the stand and explain what had happened and I was still pretty shook up about how things so you go into this role so as you go into your four point role normally you would pick up a little bit to start at that point you go into your your first Point on the role in your nose is still above the horizon right in the role inverted To your second point your nose is still still above the fries but starting to drop is that is that right. That's right. And that's where he using neutralize. The rudder is well and I'm still kind of pushing a little bit forward on the stick. Dick and then on the third point is where your neutralizing the stick. But you're not neutralizing in Aileron input but like as far as pitch control and now you're really stuff into what what little I have left in that t thirty four. That's the only thing about that airplane. I call it my three and a half point role because by the time your third point going back to two level you so out of rudder control and you're just Max you know Aileron to the to the left and to your point in those airplanes and in that to thirty four unlike the jets that I flew when you he wanted to do a four point roll it was just all Iran and you had really good roll control so it was a relatively easy maneuver to do in the t thirty four like you're flying a a lot of rudder and aileron coordinated input to make that four point role happen especially at precision that you were flying correct correct right and loaded the ground and the more speed you have behind you. You don't really need a whole lot to do a role that in that particular airplane lacking of Rudder it's nice to have a little bit of smashed behind you so you still have the speed need to on that last point from three to four you can just really make it so it looks somewhat Chris but just not as Christmas when I see these high-energy airplanes flying these four point. Oh Man. So you're there you are inverted your seat. Breaks it slides back. You're probably about how high off the runway way. Where are you at this point? When that happened? I would say Probably one to two hundred feet so not not like right down on the deck and now the the challenge with just wallowing out of this thing with Aileron only is. You can't roll that airplane as quickly as you want to just aileron right. So you're kind of motion your way out out of this role. Meanwhile the dropping towards the runway the entire time is that correct. That's an absolutely correct. You said it right on Richard and I was so happy to be right side up and offended by that point loads of ground and not much speed behind me and I just remember just turning back to the runway to get. I'm done I'm done. I was even going to quit the air show business because I need this. You know it really got my attention you know it really also points out. It's a remarkable people like you and Sean D Tucker and Michael Julian who've done on this for so many years so successfully and you've been able to overcome these mechanical failures that happen and you are so often in proximity to the ground around that high risk environment in somehow you're able to deal with these situations in our listeners. Have heard some of them from Sean D Tucker and and Michael Julian and now yourself and somehow you're able to keep your wits about you get the airplane attitude you need to and fly it out of the situation. What do you think Julie helped you in in your training your your mindset to deal with that? That's a good question Richard. I'm so disciplined and I think a lot of that comes from you know I was a civilian navy the pilot but then my Nearly thirty years an airline pilot and all the train that we went through all the time and complacency can be your worst enemy in any flying situation. So you just have to. And I'm real practice. I Know Sean D Tucker is the same way because I live an airport..
"j clark" Discussed on Two Broads Talking Politics
"Natalie in DC and you're listening to two broads talking politics is Kelly with two broads talking politics and the second prod on with me today is Representative Katherine Clark who is the Vice Chair of the House Democrats the caucus hello representative Clark Hi Kelly I'm so pleased to be with you today thank you for having me I'm really excited to talk to you ah there's so much that one can talk about these days but I I wondered I was I was looking a bit at your biography and it looks on paper like you have this fairly traditional path into politics of moving up in the ranks but it was wondering what what got you interested in in politics in the first place and how you sort of started that journey you know I never saw myself seeking elected office never mind being in Congress in fact my husband often thinks there should been some sort of pre-nuptial disclosure of interest in all of this but I got interested when I moved to a new community outside of Boston and I was very active in my day job has general counsel working on childcare issues and eight people were running for nine open seats on the member school committee and I decided the chance to be involved on the local level and education and making sure that every family could access full day kindergarten was an opportunity that I wanted to to be a part of and it was also guaranteed that I would win I race to to start off in yeah I I think my husband also thinks there should have been a pre-nup about my interest in politics yeah you a- As I have sought other opportunities you know being in the State House and then in Congress there I have found that the there's also an advantage to never seem myself in this position that there's two things that's really he taught me one there's a certain freedom in just being able to come here in vote what you think is good for your district and good for the country without an eye on the next political step for you personally and to make room uh up the table for more women and more women's voices is something that I have never forgotten people who helped me along the way and really to be that hand reaching back and pulling other women up and saying I don't look at Congress as a place that I would be but you should yet ensued this Congress of course has more women than have ever been there before what what kind of difference does that make having having more women at the table You know in committees and on the House floor for votes how does that how does that affect the whole dynamics what's happening in Congress you know and I know Kelly this overlaps with your personal story a lot but I was co chair of the red two blue last year which is the Democrats in the house political arm that look to recruit and support we're candidates running for Congress and I saw so many women who started in the women's March so concerned about the future of the country tree and what this administration would mean to women and families and our economy and they took Got March and turned it into a run for Congress and as I traveled the country I saw women who had never been involved in politics maybe certainly for the first time supporting a Democrat they were the ones that were manning the phones in Texas and Illinois and New Jersey and Wyoming and all the places that I traveled and they were knocking on doors and they were giving you know small parts of their paycheck to their candidates because they saw what was that steak and we elected the most diverse caucus in the history of Congress in two thousand eighteen and that this put all those issues that we care about on the front burner whether it's access to childcare protecting our our right to healthcare making sure we're covering pre-existing mm conditions and that being a woman alone does not again qualify as a pre existing condition making sure would doing everything we can to reduce gun violence in this country raising the minimum wage ensuring pay equity for women all These are bills that the Democrats in the house have passed it is sad that they are collecting dust at the Senate door but we aren't we're not going away and it is having women's voices and their perspectives and their life stories here and and voting that is critically important at this juncture for our country I've talked on here on this podcast a number of times oh how crushing it was to not elect a woman president in two thousand sixteen I had in elementary school had said but that didn't happen so I know for for me and for a lot of us at the this sort of crushing disappointment of coming so close to to finally having a woman as President in you know having having dodged in such a terrible terrible way with the election of Donald trump but what do you think it would make a difference what kind of difference do you think it would make to to have a woman President if we are able to finally elect a woman in in two thousand twenty what that will mean to women and girls in this country you know I think it is that role model that that makes such a difference it is why it's so important that we have that diversity in the House Democrats that that people can look at the Democratic Caucus and and see people who look like them whether that is gender or race or ethnicity or religion that is what makes representative government really work and so I think that what we saw in two thousand eighteen is that this sort of myth that I I hear from even from other Democrats repeated that the country is just not ready for a woman press President is just that it's a myth we can see with the leadership style of Nancy Pelosi the fact that seven women are chairman of I should say chair person of major committees here in the House of Representatives these are critical accomplishments and a woman president is not only going to bring those perspectives of of being a mother and a daughter of knowing what it means not to be able to know how you're going to balance the bills between childcare and the salary you're bringing in that women understand that sandwich generation where you're still carrying for children but very much caring for elderly parents and what that means these are the type of experiences that we've been bring to the table we bring a leadership style that I think is one of consensus building and truly listening and understanding but also being able to be tough and and good negotiators is exactly what we need in our next president to help us begin to undo the damage from this president who leads by chaos and bullying and oppression of people of color end of women yes yeah so I I wanted to ask you about one of the the bills the US sponsored the I think it's called be heard in the workplace act and I I also want to know who has the job of coming up with these titles that then are great acronym so it's the bringing and you're seeking to do without legislation yeah the be heard act and we have very talented staff who help us with these clever names filed with Patty Murray Senator Patty Murray and it is the comprehensive response to the METOO movement the just having passed the two year anniversary of the revelations about Harvey Weinstein that really brought so many stories so many stories the brave survivors to the forefront and `and we learn from those lessons and said what can we do to change federal law to make sure that every workplace is if one and this may have taken root in in Hollywood but it applies equally to women working on farms in restaurant kitchens in offices and small businesses across this country and so it is he comprehensive response that will give the tools that are needed to make sure that women don't sign away all their rights by a nondisclosure agreement or pre dispute settlement agreement on day one of their job it will make sure that the we have time that they need by extending the statute of limitations to get out of a bad situation and then bring in their claim because we see too many women who cannot take the economic risk of bringing a claim while before they find a new place employment so these are just some of the provisions that will really put the strength of federal law into ensuring that what every single workplace is one of dignity and I had the great pleasure a few weeks ago and just a urges all day with the blue sky and we were out in a rally on this act and we had a eight foot megaphone that artists behind so that we are sure that we are going to be heard and I got to talk to one of the leaders in the fight for fifteen ms Johnson and she told me about how when she had her workplace was grabbed by the breast by her boss and just how humiliating that was for her but how badly she needed that job and in order to support her family she didn't feel like she had recourse and she was there she reminded me of exact similar situation when I was a waitress in college but it's it's for those stories it's for women who have suffered too long from harassment from assault and to make sure that we say we not only heard you in the metoo movement but we're going to take concrete actions to change the law to hold people accountable and to give business this is that may not have big HR departments the tools and resources they need to have training and to have manuals that lay out the the expectations clearly that every single place of work is going to be one where people are judged solely on their performance for the job they were hired for and that they can go to work free from harassment and free from fear and so it is exciting we have over the majority of the House Democrats signed on and I am very excited and ositive that this bill is going to get over the finish line so you know I think a lot of people were worried that if impeachment started that that would just derail everything nothing would happen the House has been so so busy I've been doing so much work passing so many bills ask with impeachment and not doing the work you can find all of our episodes at two broads talking politics dot com or anywhere podcast found.

"Frank Clark was convicted for a felon for home and home invasion. He was connected with an arrested and kicked off a football team for domestic violence. He then scolded a reporter about it, saying, go clean my fish tank. This is not generally like a good, dude. Did he make the football team better today for sure he did? And so you as a fan of to decide what's important. Let's talk about it from. A football perspective. And maybe a team building standpoint. Because I firmly believe that the chiefs today said yes to Frank Clark. And not tyreek hill. I do. Not think the tyreek hill is going to be on the team passed the next two seasons at the absolute most, I think they've said, yes, obviously to Mahomes, they are going to say, yes. To Chris Jones. They just said yes to Frank Clark. I just don't think there's enough money long-term to pay tyreek hill. Do you agree? Yeah. My understanding even before this. Frank Clark move was made today. And this just further confirms and affirms. It is that this was the last year of tyreek hill and Kansas City. I think they chiefs probably viewed this incident, and whatever comes with it as a manageable thing. But there's no way in hell Clark contests gonna sign this wide receiver to one of the most richest contracts in NFL history of franchise Dagenham, what about him playing out the rest of this season franchise tag. I think they get through the situation. And I think they set to tyreek hill at the beginning of this you need to stay clean because we're taking a risk here. He didn't do that. I think they let him walk and then reap the benefits of that third round pick. You'll. Get as a compensatory pick. Let's be honest as the NFL as you were kind of alluding to cdot where you're definitely one hundred percent go to have him on a team. So that she will get a third round pick back for that. And as you see with the patriots. That's probably the right trend to go. And they have twelve picks this year and can really improve their team or you just franchise tag tyreek hill. And then you trade them the same way that Seattle just did with Frank Clark. All yeah. That's another possibility as well. Would you have made the move today that the cheese made referring Clark, I probably have different viewpoints about again. I don't want to continue to harp on these off the field things. I I would take that probably a little bit more into consideration from pure football standpoint. One hundred percent, I think Adam tie shirts. Obvious PIN put it the best. I mean, they traded. What was it a first rounder and and Defoe Lord essentially for Frank Clark, who is a way better fit. Probably will stay a lot healthier than Ford was able to historically and the chiefs are better football team today, and we've been talking about all offseason. Chiefs defense doesn't need to be outstanding. They just need to be pretty good and the cheese should win. Most full. Ballgames. They're pretty good. Now, how they believe how much more do you believe in Frank Clark than you did indeed Ford because essentially what they did is paid him an extra fifteen million dollars in trade at each other. I don't think it's necessarily what I believe I believe that Steve Spagnolo thinks that his defense is more effective with this player than D Ford would have been and I think that's what mattered here. I think that's why Frank Clark is here in default is not right now, we're talking to Pete Sweeney..
