Malaysian court temporarily halts deporting Myanmar nationals
"Immigration officials in Malaysia have deported more than 1000 million mar nationals and move human rights groups say could put them at risk. Following the February 1st coup. The military carried out in the country, formally known as Burma, Michael Sullivan is following developments from neighboring Thailand. Malaysian court ordered a halt to the immediate deportation of the Myanmar nationals earlier in the day. Pending the outcome of a hearing on Wednesday to suspend the deportation altogether. Instead, hundreds were loaded up to three Myanmar navy ships to begin the journey to a home they fled. Human rights groups say members of Myanmar's Muslim minority Rohingya and many from Myanmar's other minority communities are included. Malaysian immigration officials denied this protests against the February 1st coup are continuing in Myanmar, despite warnings from the military protesters have embarked on a confrontational path. That could lead to a loss of life. If the demonstrations don't end for NPR news, I'm Michael Sullivan in Chiang Rai.
Huawei unveils flagship foldable smartphone for China market
"Have another foldable phone. This one from wall way. Sarah tells all about it all right away. The made x. two which now holds the screen inside like the samsung galaxy. Fold rather than wrapping around the outside when you close it while we added a second six point. Four or five inch led ninety. Heard screen to the made to for you to use. It is folded. The inside foldable screen is eight inches. Twenty four by twenty display and the company says the mate x has less of an internal gap so it folds flatter than the galaxy full. So they're obviously making comparisons there. The screen folds into a waterdrop shape at the hinge when closed to prevent chrissy and and also breaking the made two launches but the android ten based. Em ui eleven. No google services but while we says it will be. One of the first device is upgraded to harmony os. That's always us in april. The made extra comes to china on february twenty fifth for seventy thousand nine hundred ninety nine one which is about two thousand seven hundred eighty five. Us dollars the announcement was conducted in mandarin nod. In english as is as it was in previous announcements and facts while we may run out of parts in q to even one if us trade restrictions do remain in place. Nick asia reported last week. That always told suppliers smartphone component orders would-be sixty percent lower than last year. Yes on the one hand we we see wah wah moving over to samsung's form factor On the other hand they are touting unimproved hinge that they say well. We've moved there because we've made it better but outside this is obviously targeted only domestically in china and We it's a question of even how many they could make to sell in china. Trevor have you been paying attention to this. Yeah i mean. I think if you're running out of chips the navy a good strategy would be to put out a phone. That's this expensive. You know you're not gonna sell now. Granted they they've probably been working on this for years but like that's going to help like how many people are going to spend twenty eight hundred dollars on a folding fund but it puts wall in a position where they're innovating on this new form factor. And personally. I think that the the full actually works really well. Because you don't have that sort of lopsided gap that you do in other foldables while way is playing out the clock here. They're they're hoping they can find a way out of this and they just wanna keep making models. They sold off on her but they do not want to sell off while way itself which would be the only other way out of this but if the. Us doesn't budge. Which doesn't look like it's going to. I'm not sure how long they can go. Obviously not longer than q two if things stay exactly the way they are now. Well the the foldable itself looks pretty nice guy. I didn't watch the entire announcement again in mandarin but the subtitles. I can follow along pretty well but it does look at least you know when someone standing on stage telling you about specs. It looks to be very nice When it's you know when it's when it's being used in tablet form You got a nice little eight inch screen when you've when it's when it's folded but you can still use it as a phone kind of block easy but i think for anyone who's like yeah but i have multiple devices and one that makes sense. It does seem pretty sturdy. One thing i did like about it was that they said that it was waited on one side and it reminded me a lot of the e-readers in adel put more weight on. What side because it's a more natural way to hold the device when you're holding it open so i think that's something that hopefully other foldables will adopt. Because they're sort even because they're trying to distribute the parts evenly across the
Guantanamo Bay here to stay?
"I've said repeatedly that. I intend to close guantanamo and i will follow through on. It was one of the signature promises of barack obama's two thousand eight campaign for the us presidency. He would close america's post. Nine eleven improvised prison for suspected terrorists at the. Us navy base at guantanamo bay in cuba. He did not nor did his successor. Donald trump this morning. I watched president obama talking about gitmo vo. He never said he would indeed. He signed an executive order to keep it open. We also threatened to add to its population. And we'll get loaded up with some bad dudes politically. We'll get a loaded up. He did not. there were forty. One prisoners still held at guantanamo bay. When trump took office one of whom was released into the custody of saudi arabia forty remained many nearing. Two decades of incarceration it now falls to us. President joe biden who had a ringside view of obama's failure to decide what to do about it. The national security council has been directed to review the facility and consider its future.

interview With Chef Andre Rush
"Thanks a lot for joining me. Pleasure to be here all right and incredibly honored the cheer joining me here today. Not only do. I admire what you represent all your accomplishments but you know the way you represent the military and serve the charities that benefit the military families. Thank you for that. Thank you for your service. Thank you a. really appreciate that. All right we're talking about a lot of stuff but first of all want to get it out of the way. How the heck did you get so big so big. Yeah your arms eating heat a lot. Well the twice as much as i do. i've always been in health and fitness. Mind tire life Soon as i could walk. my dad. put me to work From mississippi small town. I when i work i mean hard work. Not too little work You know lifting. He deconstructed for fifty years So it was kind of like that that giving to go into stuff. My dad told me a car and put it over there. I wouldn't do that when no questions wasn't about. I can't there's no. I cannot in my vocabulary well okay. So how was your childhood one childhood. I mean it was a extremely uh. I guess it was the best time as the worst time. Kind of like the military can elect life in a lot of perspectives I was I was different because my my mother taught me to neighboring part of of of who i am. That's why i give back so much. My dad taught me the hard work aspect of life. I mean when. I say hard work. It was a lot of times where i had to work in other kids went out and played. You know even with is football and track and and working out. I had to go and work so in the beginning. It was kind of like okay. You know. I wanna be a kid now look back at. I'm extremely grateful for the way i was raised. I i love it. Because i can give back to so more people with that That aspect of course so. Your dad instilled that disciplined in to. You accord really early age. What did he do. He did constructed for fifty years. When i say fifty years he retired after fifty years construction and that was when we didn't have the big machines or i mean some he would. I can put people to shame right. Now what i do. He would put me to shame when i do. Oh he's a big guy. He was a big guy. I mean endurance part of it. So that's kind of like all those things. I wanna be that guy who could run a for this jump. The highest lift moles not in a competitive way. Just my way. Yeah you have brothers and sisters. I do five sisters when colonel who's an air force My brother was Officer in the navy as will neither one was a merchant marine mouth sisters Educators teaching blind how to read and depth in life and in another one was a psychiatrist and social worker. You find yourself competing with them a lot. No then have to a has did alone. I mean it wasn't never competition. My my youngest sister in a huge gap between me my younger sister and then the rest of the family which was eight of us Maybe like thirteen years. So when i was a kid they were already going into thinking about what their next career is going to be a right. So what drives you. What drives me. Today people people inspiration motivational intestinal fortitude selfless service self motivation. I mean i have so many things that drive me that even i didn't know i knew they dan but not in the way that i do now that i can lynn an ear or voice or hand or some type of support I tell people all the time that you know. I positively hundred percent negatively Feet opened a thousand times more. Because there's always going to be more negative in the world and people say no. My circle is just positive small. And i say that's not true is because you're going to have the quote side. You're gonna have to talk to someone who's going to get under you and then you're gonna lose it. I i i have that passion where understood myself and ahead to realize that there's going be native so i need to figure out how i'm going to utilize it to my advantage now. Yeah you know you're you'd live such a life of service where you always kind of the value driven kid or or did was an event that happened earlier in life and led you to that No i was always said that type away because my mother likes my mother and my dad was excuse me that was low harder. My mother was a type of person who i was. A kid would bring the homeless off the street in table and feed them. And and i used to know person. Who's dressed like this coming in. You know everybody else's shunning them away and she said me and my sisters down family down and say hey this is a person or they have xyz and from there. It just opened my eyes. And instantly i. I changed looked at their situations and x. Why why not in. And of course. I was always putting immune the military when i put him this thrown into leadership roles so i had to learn how to adapt and luckily because of my background of where i was raised and it was a small time. Zippy believe me only a few people to go out and see so many different Religions and ethene and just a whole smorgasbord and rainbow of different cultures was just kinda fascinating to me and i wanted to understand each and every one
MN leads Midwest, but falls short on electric vehicles
"The purchasing power of the federal government to buy clean zero emission vehicles that are made in source right here in america. That's president joe biden. He wants to electrify the federal fleet to help reduce transportation greenhouse gas emissions but our consumers and states ready to follow. I'm npr chief meteorologist. Paul hutton are here with climate. Cast the american council for an energy efficient economy tracks eib progress their state policy director. Brian howard is here. Hi brian hey all great to be with you today. So this is some pretty big news on the ev front. I president biden's plan and then gm announces its goal to sell only electric vehicles by twenty thirty five. Are we approaching a tipping point here for these. I think so. We've continued to see a steady growth in the av market Even this year despite all the challenge of the covid so you with those activities that are coming from federal government and from a major auto manufacturers. I think we are reaching invasion point about what transportation electric vacations gonna look like in the united states and correct me if i'm wrong but these are only about two percent of the market right now. Why is this such a huge scale of opportunity for vs to reduce these transportation emissions to start with the transportation sector is responsible for about eight percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the united states which is the largest emitter based on kind of the sectors. That are out there So when we're to convert interro combustion engines and move that over to electric vehicles. There's a significant emissions reduction benefit which obviously helps with climate. But then also there's a number of other residual really important benefits as it relates to public health that you get from electrifying transportation. Well in one of those. I assume is jobs right because it's not just the vehicles you need the right infrastructure charging infrastructure. You need the right policies to move these things along which states are leading on this front of the hundred points that we looked at california scored. Ninety one next in line was new york at sixty three point. Sixty three point five which is obviously a pretty deep differentiation between the numbers. And how does minnesota rank minnesota is twelfth based on our evaluation which is a leader in the midwest but certainly is behind the national leaders in the top ten. What is minnesota doing. Well and where is there a need for faster. Progress with vs. So minnesota's done a number of things well Minnesota has done a really good job of articulating. How utilities could invested infrastructure. The state has also taken some initial steps to ratify california's zero emission vehicles regulations which would set that manufacturers need to sell a certain number of electric vehicles from passenger like vehicles in the state of which is being considered. Now you know there are some things that clearly need improvement They have identified that the absence of statewide incentives for electric vehicles is a challenge in something that they need to address. One thing. We should touch on right when we're charging an electric vehicle. It matters where that power came from right absolutely. And so what. Are you seeing with trends of different states. That have More renewable energy than other places when it comes to being able to charge navy with that we are seeing a an overall positive trend in terms of having states move towards outer percent clean energy for their for their grids. There's also a lot of states that are taking that activity very seriously and providing interim goals about how they're going to get to that low carbon future minnesota as an example is considering how to deal with that now in the legislature But other states have already shown us the way. Brian howard state policy director with the american council for an energy efficient economy. Thanks so much for sharing your perspective. Climate cast today. It's great to be here. Thanks so much for the time.
TPA Open Source Software Security with Jennifer Fernick
"Let's do a little background on you. Give us the thirty second overview of who you are and in what brings you here. Share name's stanford for nick. I'm the global head of research at nc secret which is a large cyber security consulting firm prior to this iran a security team at a large bank. I've been doing security for a very long time long before. I realized that it was an actual industry in profession and grew up through Do undergrad and my masters was in systems engineering. And then he's a phd student in cryptography. So my main focus area has historically been progress. But of course it's expanded to much more recently Currently i run a security team that has several hundred researchers at antique group. So you are in fact. One of those jokingly jobs and i always talk about in crypto. There's like five people the world qualified to talk about it. You probably one of those five hundred. If we're going to talk about post quantum crypto. Maybe i was really interested in. Public key crypto systems in how quantum computers could be used to break them. So that's specific staff of probably. Although less over time i guess as i've stepped into maybe a broader a broader role within. I need to get back on the show to talk about. Post quantum crypto kaz. Admittedly tell you. I have absolutely so little knowledge in that stays. It's not even funny all right so you we wanted to get this conversation. Getting kicked off around Around open source You've done some work in this in this area. Tell us a little bit about de get started their shirt so Of course at nc group we do like of security research and some of this is the more traditional vulnerability research so about a year and a half ago. Maybe there were a bunch of people that were getting very interested in figuring out. How do we better secure of open-source ecosystem because we know that there's been this sort of lacombe. Ole finding of random security bugs sometimes super inconsequential on super small projects. Sometimes absolutely massive about things like heart bleed so so like across time There's been there's been an uncovering in a very patchy way of vulnerabilities within open source software. So we were interested in really finding a way to coordinate impulse together and figure out what are some strategic steps forward in open source software security cool all right so look there. There has been so much raging debate And i use that word. Because it's almost like the windows versus lennox versus mac discussion. These days right turns into like a pseudo religious argument oval open source versus commercial software. Which one's better which one's more secure in insecurities Everyone goes and even if you had an app. Even for those of us have spurs one way or the other. You wait five minutes. And there's there's proof to the contrary so a you mentioned heart bleed right like then there's bash bog that forget the name of it but i mean if it had its own logo and i think we even made a theme song for crying out loud like it got it. It's gotten a little absurd. Yeah people are spending too much time marketing. Their bugs navy. But but you know we we open ourselves stuff was such a. I guess a revelation or wakeup call for a lot of us because there was this there was this belief that somehow open source. Stuff is you know. can infallible. Like all right. There's so many people looking at it and you know it's being reviewed in real time. It's the community. Always like their community has the opportunity to bug on either. We didn't or or there's something wrong with that argument. Yeah there's this tragedy of the comments thing that happens around open source software where we assume that just because someone can look at it. Someone has And we also assume that if someone's looking at it they are not an adversary and totally wanna do a responsible coordinated disclosure which is not often or not necessarily always the case so the i think hardly really opened our eyes to the impact that these bugs can have. I mean if you think about it. This was wet like spring. Twenty fourteen that this came out in public Showed us what the risk really looks like in practice you know. There was a single critical vulnerability found within an individual open source project that was maintained by only a few volunteers recall correctly. Like maybe one person was working on it. Fulltime and this was like the underlying infrastructure for like a non trivial portion of the entire internet yet and it compromises security of. I think it was like seventeen or somewhere. Unplug percent of all of the web servers on the internet. And it's like. I think this really shows us how like important. These software systems are and how many dependencies trace back to open source software. So when people are having this debate what is more secure open source or proprietary software. Obviously there's trade offs right. Proprietary can't necessarily have everyone look at the source but you're at least guaranteeing that someone probably is looking at the source an all of these other things but i mean it's it almost becomes a moot point to me because whether you make a case for proprietary software being more secure or open source software being more secure weather proprietary or open source. There's often dependencies upon core pieces of infrastructure that are open source so finding a way to secure these things matters and out of like what came with heart lead. The lennox foundation started like the core infrastructure initiative which put millions of dollars into helping secure open source software. So really open necessarily just kind of the next phase of of that work effort will be good excellent point because this is something that the scene repeatedly because a lot of the the foundations of nobody writes all their libraries right. I mean only the insane Scratch even when. I was the world's worst developer a million years ago. There would still be things you would include you do from other y- find something like okay. I need to know how to do. X y and z. Like i have no idea how to write. I'm gonna go find a l and include that. I can bring in pop that in want to use somebody else's optimized i don't have threat from scratch. Brilliant web apps are the greatest way to see this in action because there's just tons of frameworks plug ins and whatever and a lot of that stuff is open source maintained by the community and then we find out that there are a event julia every once in a while we find a massive bugs in in some of these things and then we gotta go hunting and got to realize that A lot of the commercial products out there have been source things inside them. That are vulnerable that it will like okay. So how do we fix this now. Yeah and like those transitive. Dependencies can often go many layers deep lake sometimes depending on something. That's depending on something. That's depending on open source library. Which itself is depending on some other open source component and often it can go many layers steve unlike just understanding those transitive dependencies where that risk comes into any product. Yet open source or commercial is very hard. It's something that Organizations don't necessarily do The organizations that rely upon these critical things don't always finds them or study them at the depth that you might expect that they would. So there's a definite need for folks that are interested in doing security research in working with open source maintainers to really come together and pull in the same direction. Otherwise we just have this infinite like finding of random bugs but if you think about. I don't know the statistics that ucla seve owner vulnerability databases. There's tens of thousands of vulnerabilities disclosed every year. That gets vs. There's way more than that that are being disclosed. That maybe don't tv's there's even more than that that are being found in not patched and there's probably even more than that being created input into existence so when we think about just the massive stale at which there exist 'vulnerability in sourcing beyond Clearly something needs to change in in the ways that we develop software in the ways that we secure software throat like this. Dlc in in what happens when we integrate these at risk components. So

"navy" Discussed on Veterans Chronicles
"Do you want a personal story sir. I had had appendicitis attack previously and Just before i was to the navy i had an appendicitis attack and the doctor wanted to operate and would not be responsible for life. I didn't have the appendicitis I said no. I'm going to navy next week. Put some ice. on bush they did in this subsided. I went down to new orleans. I was only in new alliance or a couple of weeks when the scientist popped up and my first flight with the davy was a yellow peril. Stephen flying me from new orleans hospital. In pensacola where i had my appendix out. None i came back to new orleans rather i came back to new orleans and wanted to stay with my class so I did despite my. We couldn't condition from the operation. And then once you got in this guy. Had you ever flown a plane before. No i ended up plane before. I'd never been in an airplane. And i did not know how to drive a car. I learned to fly an airplane before. I learned to drive a call. Is that right. Well was it. Something came naturally to yell. I went through flight training without a down shake. I think partially that might be because i Was heavily controls. The first time my was an automobile driver changing over to an airplane. I was supposed to airplane fresh and Took to it right away. It had no problem. So then you went to brooklyn. I went to floyd bed field. I spent a year trying to get out of brooklyn. I kept applying to captured for fleet duty until they finally gave in some towns to washington. I was given the opportunity to say what branch of The navy i wanted to fly with the fighters palmas or torpedo planes. And i decided on the bombers of way to wirewood joined up with a group of young pilots who right eh operational trading in florida and had operational training in thai bama's where i was coming from floyd bennett field whereas flying You float planes the on wheels. And i'd like to type bomb simply by following. What the other guys did and Most of the pilots who came from anti submarine patrol analysts to use got washed out pretty quickly but there were two of us stock. Laura myself who Stayed on with the squadron and after we finished training in why would we then joined up and had the group organization so peter. Planes came down from quonsett. The fighter planes for moral for my leg city and the diabetes miss from wirewood. And we're joined up in Sienna and began training as a group. What appealed to you about the dive bombers. Why did you choose that. I'm not sure now looking back. But i i think. Originally i chose to become the scout bomb..
A highlight from S6 E3 - What is VA Solid Start?
"Welcome to we serve now. What were we seek to answer. The questions. veterans and their families are already asking that stays question is about a relatively new. Va program called va solid. Start and on today's show. We'll be answering all your questions about this program. What is it. who's it four. What's the goal of the program who's eligible and perhaps most importantly the actions that you need to take to not only take advantage of this program but also to take advantage of ball. The va benefits that you've earned through your military service. And i thought who better to answer this question than the person who came up with the program. So some of you may have heard of dr paul lawrence who is the head of the veterans benefits administration. Well his second. Command is a lady by the name of margarita devlin and she is an absolute well of knowledge. Not just from the. Va solid start program. But about so much more as well hello. My name is aaron perkins. I'm a. Us army combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Father to two amazing kiddos on the author of resolve a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the journey of rediscovering purpose. Meaning and passion in your life after you've left the military and if you hadn't guessed on the host of this podcast and when we come back my special guest will be here so sit back. Relax and enjoy my conversation with margarita. Devlin who am i. Why am i still here. How can i uncover who. I was meant to be during my own transition from the. Us army the wounds of war especially those not visible continued to plague my through the pain of job loss of ptsd diagnosis at crippling anxiety by finally discovered the reason. I'm here on the earth. And i knew i couldn't keep it to myself so i wrote a book. Simply titled result. Resolved is a book that has one apologetically faith-based a step by step guide designed for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other veterans resolve provides veterans everywhere with the tool to help you step into your new life a life full hope purpose and vision for the future to pick up your copy of resolve head over to courage to fight again dot com. That's courage to fight again dot com. Well i am here with margarita. Devlin and i just want to take a minute to thank you margarita for being here on the show. This is going to be so so great. I'm super excited about it. But i want to take a minute just to kind of introduce you. And i don't want to steal your thunder because i'm going to give you a chance to introduce yourself as well but margarita devlin. She is the principal secretary for benefits in the department of veterans affairs. She's held that position since may of two thousand eighteen. Now that title in itself obviously a mouthful right. But i will let you. Margarita explained what your role is and all of that and kind of dive into a little bit more for listeners. Basically she second in command at veterans benefits administration so veterans benefits administration. Va that's your va. Va home loan disability compensation of oak rehab life insurance transition assistance and speaking of transition assistance marguerita has a lot of different advancements in military to civilian transition and also suicide prevention to include. What we're talking about today and that is the. Va solid start program so margarita. It is so good to have you. I just want you to want you to take a few minutes and introduce yourself but is so great to have you here. Welcome to we served now. What inky so much. It's really my pleasure to be here. Thank you for inviting me to be on this podcast And i guess what. I areas like to tell people as i've been in the va for twenty five years It's my passion to serve veterans in in various different roles throughout my career. i'm also mom of inactivity serving marine And also the mom of a college student Dad was a navy veteran brother served in the army so Military family close very close to my heart this mission so really happy to be here and talk about the solid start program haas of also weived definitely excited to have you and again on this show. We do our best to answer the questions that veterans and their family members are already asking and one of those questions is what is the. Va solid start programming. And that's question. Maybe we can just lead off with that. What is the. Va solid start program. Absolutely i'm happy to just dive right into that. so solid. The solid start program is really part of the military to civilian transition journey. That really looks at the fact. That transition does not end when you get the d. to fourteen at the end of your military service in fact those of you who have served you know this right. That's really when everything starts to actually happen and no amount of preparation With the military can really prepare you for what what your situation is gonna be like after we heard this from veterans so this program really seeks to connect with veterans in that first year after separation starting at about three months and then we follow up beginning six months in a year and it really is an opportunity for us to start out with. How is it going for you. How's your transition going. How're you doing what's going on in your life. What are you worrying about. And really letting the veteran drive the conversation about what he or she needs the moment how it's going and then our agents are very well trained to pick up on those cues from that conversation and provide that veteran with specific resources in guidance on how to continue their transition in the most successful manner. Possible that is that is huge. I remember. I remember when i got out at the end of two thousand fourteen. It was a kind of a drinking from the fire hose. Except i didn't even know what i was supposed to be drinking. You know it's like hey here's a bunch of benefits you might be eligible for good luck and so it's funny so we started this podcast in the summer of two thousand eighteen and it wasn't until i started this podcast and started doing some research that i learned about more benefits. I could've taken advantage of when i first got out. You know four years prior and so the fact that this this solid start program is tackling that specific issue. I think is great. So what what. Problems specifically is the program trying to solve will it is really a suicide prevention initiative and it came from the fact that we heard from veterans. That sort of felt like all the services and support sorta stopped When they separated from the military and because it was like drinking from a fire hose. They really didn't know where to go to do And who to connect to and it was really difficult for. Va to connect with veterans who were not engaging with our with our systems already so we entered into this agreement with department of defense and homeland. Security is coastguard is under homeland security to get data feet of all the military members when they were separating so that we can start those phone calls so that we can call everybody and by the way we do call everybody that we have information for that includes regardless of character discharge We will call these veterans and we will make sure that they get connected to services and resources that are that are specific to their needs so again suicide prevention. We recognize that. There is a a real. There's a reality about transition stress Which is very different than what you might think about with clinical rate with post traumatic stress disorder. Which is a clinical diagnoses Comes with its own required treatment in the mental health arena. But this is just It's stress around. All the life changes that happened with transition. And what you said you know sometimes they. You're hearing so much about so many benefits while you're in the process of separating that when you get out you might not realize that you didn't take advantage of all of them right right. That is so true. That is so true. So so the the tap program transition assistance program or the army's version i think is a cap or something. It is this part of that is essential that the tap program still exist. How does it factor into all that. They're they're connected. They're two separate things but connectors so the transition. Assistance program does still exist Dod really owns and operates. Don on any of the military services of course puts their own branding on their part of the program via has an entire day where we come in and we teach about. Va benefits was really great. We were able to get it to a full day. Always didn't always look like that but even in that full day where we teach it's really It's a classroom experience right so you're Before covid you were in a room with twenty twenty five other service members and as much as we try to make it engaging and make sure that the servicemember can tie all the benefits to their own personal situation using interactive workbook. All of those things. It still was a classroom experience. A not individual not one on one We do still have benefit visor. Available for one on one support with and they. They advertise that during the class. Now when we went into the code environment we go to virtual So we we are still pretty much in the virtual environment. We've we've started working on getting a little bit more in person presence with tap classes but of course as you can imagine Safety is the number one concern And so we think about this way. Transition assistance program is about teaching. You what you might need to know and getting you prepared in the right mindset for transition. Solid start is like okay. Now we're gonna talk to you after this happened after you got out of the military to see. How are you doing ended. All that stuff makes sense. What questions do you still have. And it's one on one so rather than having to listen to what everybody has to listen to if you already have a job and that's not your concern or you're already in college and using your education benefits that's not your concern but maybe you need to get into a medical appointment. You don't know how to navigate. That will work with you on justice. If that's what you need is maybe you have issues with your children. You need some some other resources. We have access to information about state department of veterans affairs benefits that can sometimes filling gaps were. Va can't Provide a service to really is personalized the comments we hear from veterans. I know you've been seeking feedback from veterans. As well is that they're surprised that va's calling and they're so thankful for it because they were maybe not sure who to call her how to ask about a particular benefit so it's been really interesting seeing the positive reaction from our veteran community. Absolutely and you know. I think that you know this is my opinion. You based on my own experience and the experience of know friends and other veterans who gone through the transition systems program. There are getting ready to get that to you to fourteen right. So all of those briefings. I shouldn't say all but a lot of those briefings are at least in the transitioning servicemembers. Mind it's it's a check the block it's like all right. Let me just get through this thing. So i can go home. Take off this uniform for the final time and get on with my life so the fact that you're contacting them throughout that first year i think they're going to be a whole lot more receptive to hearing. What the benefits are. Because it's not like you're not keeping them from you know from going home you know. You're not you're not saying. Hey you have to be here. This is your place of duty right now. So you mentioned covid nineteen and a lot of things have gone. virtual has there been any other impacts to the program. I know the program still pretty new but have there been any other impacts of the program as a result of the pandemic like are you behind or ahead or anything like that. A solid start actually was in a great position to react effectively to the covid nineteen situation. All of our agents were telework ready and all of our equipment works from telework standpoint. So they haven't skipped a beat they are not behind. They are on target When we first created the program we weren't sure what kind of response we were gonna get so when we created the program We we have to have a performance measure right so we said well. How many people do we really going to answer. The phone won't va calls. You know think about yourself right if your cell phone rings and you don't recognize the number what's the chance you're gonna answer it. Probably not your let it. Go to voicemail right. And if that person's important deli new message so we kinda thought we might get that sort of a reaction so we kinda started. Set the bar low. We said fifteen percent our goal was fifteen one. Five fifteen percent of veterans we reached out to we would be able to actually engage with. They would answer the phone and engage with our with our representatives. It's been just phenomenal. The actual result actually have your with me the december twenty twenty report since we began the program. We have reached over. Eighty seven thousand veterans and the fiscal year. Twenty twenty today fifty seven point. Five percent have responded and engaged. Yeah i know it's it's been just an incredible Response and we also prioritize veterans. Who we know from the information from dod if a veteran had mental health appointment In that last year of service before they left the military prioritize them and we also know that for that population. We need to make sure we get them connected into. Va healthcare and with that sub population. The percents even higher seventy three point. Six percent have responded to our agents and our end have engaged with them on the phone. Wow that is really really great. How surprised were you at the at the numbers when he finally saw them. In the beginning. I was very surprised. And then you know we had a town hall with are Representatives the ones who are actually making the call and it was really interesting. Many of them are veterans themselves. Some of them are you were military spouses. And some of them even used to work in the tap program and and they're so passionate about their work and they're always submitting new ideas about how to improve the program here in the anecdotes That they shared with me about what some of these veterans were telling them and how grateful they were for this phone call. One thing we do is we did put it on the caller. Id so in most with most cellular services You you'll it'll save veterans affairs on your phone so you kind of notes the. Va calling so kind of helps to increase the the response rate but yeah. It's it's been an amazing response for veteran for so happy that this program is reaching them in making impact. Yeah definitely that's great. That's great so. Va solid start. It's for those who are basically brand new to the civilian world right so for those of us like myself and a lot of our listeners who are not newly separated what resources are available for us for helping us understand available that that we can take advantage of so a couple things you're right. Solid start is for those that are recently separated so for veterans of any era. Were here for you as well. And you know i always. I'm always very sensitive to that that you know if you Or vietnam era veteran. We care about you. We want you to call us if you if you never got connected to your benefits. Please call us and we will walk you through. There's a main toll free number which is one eight hundred eight two seven one thousand and that is our main call centre. Those agents are trained across the entire portfolio benefits as well and they will help you identify. What eligibilities you might have In the benefit side and they can even connect you to healthcare If you if you haven't signed up for your healthcare so they can. They can kind of connect you regardless of when you got out of the military And if you are a veteran that just got out in the last year and you haven't gotten your solid start call. I say the information we get from dod his last information we had about the servicemember. Sometimes people change their phone number They changed their email address. We do try and reach out by email First before we make that first phone call so call us. And if you're in that last in the first year after separation just asked to be transferred to the solid start program very cool very cool and you just taught me something with this eight hundred numbers at eight hundred eighty two seven one thousand right cracked. Okay so i could you know after we finish this conversation i could off here. I could call that number and find out the benefits that i'm eligible for. Maybe i'm not taking advantage of. Yes and really. What what they're gonna do is they're going to ask you some questions. What type of benefit are you thinking about. you know. and because we haven't education call center so if you said hey. I'm really wondering if i'm if i'm eligible for the gi bill. They'll transferred to gi bill experts. Right if you say well. i'm really kind of thinking. What kind of employment types of benefits or what about disability benefits So you know they'll help you with those benefits. It's a little bit different than solid. Start in that There are more got react to what you're needing in the moment whereas are solid start agents are trained to sort of prompt And get information out of the veteran to help navigate the whole suite of benefits they might be entitled to and i also wanna say your state department of veterans affairs. They have offices in in different states. We have regional offices. One day hopefully will be able to meet in person again. But in addition there's the veterans service organizations in. They're out there to help. There's a lot of resources but yes feel free to call us. Anybody listening to podcasts. Give us a call one. Eight hundred eighty two seven one thousand and we'll try and get you connected to your benefits above love it and so speaking of benefits and this is it's kind of a curiosity question. I guess what is the most overlooked benefit that veterans typically. Don't take advantage. There's a couple and we actually make it a point to focus on these in the beginning They're time sensitive so one thing for example is life insurance benefits. There is a time limit on when you can convert your service group. Life insurance to veteran group life insurance. And if you don't do in that timeline you kind of miss the opportunity It's about a year and a half out from from when you leave the military so We tell them always about life insurance and that's always kind of a tricky thing right. Nobody ever wants to think about end of life. Especially you know you. A young twenty five year old veteran and twenty six year old. And they're thinking while life insurance okay. You know if they're single and they don't have a a spouse children they might not be thinking about it so we want to make sure they understand the value of having that life insurance policy and so that they make an informed decision potentially to take advantage of it another one is dental care the eligibility for dental care which is time limited in a lot of veterans miss out on that because they don't fully understand it so there's a couple of the ones that we know are are critical sensitive And honestly we've heard some some of our veterans who say they didn't file for disability benefits. Because they didn't feel like they should take that benefit away from another veteran so we do spend some time explaining that they don't take benefit from another veteran. It's a it's a mandatory benefit. Were any veteran. Who's eligible for the benefit and it also opens up the door for healthcare. And you know if you're young and strong now but but you know that you had injuries orthopedic injuries for example. But you're okay and you can kind of deal with the pain right now. Well one day you're going to need healthcare it might worsen You know this is. This is not a handout. It is an investment in that veteran. Making sure that they can stay strong and half the care that they need to to For the rest of their life if needed sure sure so that is some really really great information. But it's not every day that i get to to the principal. Deputy undersecretary for benefits at the veterans benefits administration or being translated. Second command right. So i have a couple of questions that they're they're along the lines of transition but not solid start specific right sure all right so one thing that i'm incredibly passionate about is helping veterans rediscovery since of purpose and meaning after the military and so finding that sense of purpose in that sense of meaning after military service is. It's really the single most challenging part of a chat challenging part of the transition and so one question. I wanted to ask you is how does the. Va help with this aspect of post military life. It's interesting that you bring that up because our research also validates that is one of the biggest challenges. In fact we did. We just started last year. A post-separation study of veterans. Who went through the top programme while they were in uniform to kind of see the retrospective look right. Because it's one thing we can really high marks in the classroom right there. The ninety six percent are highly satisfied with our tap class. But what we wanna do is wait to your veteran in the naski. Look back on and say okay now. How well prepared did you feel you were and we also bounce that against data to see are they employed you know are they using our benefits and we ask them for information about how they're doing so in that study we found the open comments that we got from veterans were very much around that loss of sense of camaraderie. That loss of sort of feeling that you're part of a community unit cohesion that you had the military you don't have that in communities today And just that that loss of sense of purpose and mission so we're just now starting to lean in to explore how the can help with that. We can't solve the problem ourselves right because we're not going to be that sense of community for them but we can connect them and we've been engaging with a lot of organizations nonprofits and via so organizations that provide that connectivity that sense of community in that sense of mission And we're starting those conversations to say. How do we infuse that into the solid. Start program so that we can start connecting veterans in a different way to give them that sense of community. they're looking for. It's really going to involve have to involve a partnership model via. Can't do this alone. Sure sure on love the fact that that the va is realizing this and is like you said leaning into that so now this is a this next question for you is potentially a touchy question. But i don't need to tell you that. A lot of veterans are like. I don't like the va about experience for those veterans who have had that experience or they're just like man. I've heard so many bad things. I don't even wanna try it you know. It's probably not worth the hassle. What what would you say to them if they were if they were asking like. Okay what should i do. Should i do anything. What would you say to them right now. A couple of things first of all. I wanna say avenues. Cells and good news typically unfortunately does not get the same kind of traction. There are so many good news stories out there. And if you look for them you'll see them. I would say comback triumphs again. It's not the same. va that. It was a few years ago. We have come such a long way in the healthcare system with the hospitals in the end the outpatient clinics in our regional offices are outreach is is so much different and we understand better how to improve the experience for our veterans. So i would say it's been a couple of years maybe had a bad experience comeback to us get another chance and if your experience is not absolutely stellar fabulous edit. It doesn't make you turn around your opinion of va. Reach out to us. And i would say in the healthcare system. We have Advocates in every medical center. Go talk to the patient advocate. Tell them about your experience. Let us change something. If there's something specific that's not quite right. Sitting in our via regional office asked to speak to the leadership team. We have lead dan so hard on getting feedback from veterans and making changes across the entire enterprise. It's it's just not the same. Please try again in comeback. That's what i would say. Sure sure so of just just anecdotally right so my family. And i we live in alabama and so my closest a regional center is in birmingham. And so you know i. I've been there a lot over the past few years. And when i compare the service and the facilities and everything like that to a to a more local hospital more local medical facility. It is night and day difference. I mean bring. Va clinic is just top of the line. So it it is really an and again. I know everyone is different but it even from. When i used to go to the va we lived in texas to go into the va. Here it is. There's so many positive changes that have been made in at so honestly i'm really really happy with with the facilities and the care receive and everything like that so glad to hear that. Yeah absolutely absolutely so what's a big takeaway here right. So what does something. All veterans and newly separated veterans or. Otherwise what should they really remember from our conversation. Today i would say remember that. Va is here for you We probably have a benefit or a service that you might not have been aware of And we wanna be there. We want to be partners in your military civilian transition. We want to be partners in your life and help you with any issues that you might have. We're not the answer for everything But we also have connections with community resources and just reach out to us if if you need anything don't try and go it alone and again if if you had a bad experience in the past comeback to us i promise you it should be a much better experience now and like i said if there's anything you encounter that that you have an issue with let us know we're here to be part of it. I mean my personal story. My brother who is an army veteran wouldn't go to the. Va for the longest time. I finally got him to go and he's been so thrilled he was. He calls me up and he's like says they're offering me services that i didn't even ask for. They're they're doing this. They're doing that. And i said yes. That's what we call wraparound services when you come into a va. We are not just looking at the problem that you presented with. We're gonna ask you how else we can help you. And he's been so impressed with that. He wishes he would start in the. Va system a long time ago. It really is We've really made some great advances. So please come see as awesome awesome so here on the show. We like to give our listeners. Some practical next step. So when this podcast finishes playing what should they. Do you know the context of our conversation today. What should they do because today's question is. Hey what's the. Va solid start program. And obviously you've answered that more than we could ever imagine and in so having you on the show has been just absolutely outstanding but what should their next steps be right after listening to this podcast. I would say if you're curious about the benefits and services we offer You might try to going to our website. Www dot va dot gov easy to remember And when you go to. Va dot gov.

How To Steal Back Your Identity
"The greatest betrayal of abbey. Ellen's life began with a newspaper assignment. I was reading a story about detox diets. And i need to quote an expert and someone suggested this guy. Abby is a journalist and the author of duped a book about this fateful interview and the bizarre life altering aftermath and so i quoted him Actually it was in the new york times called a fact check. I said are you still in florida and he said no. I'm in the navy now i rejoined. I'm opening up a hospital for kids with cancer in iraq and afghanistan. And i said that's awesome. I want to write about that. Keep me posted and so he sort of did so. We'd never met in person until all why a later that when he finally was coming to new york city where i was living because he had to give a big talk at the un clearly and so he came to do is talk of the un and we went to dinner six months later abbey and this man who she calls the commander were engaged. They moved in together in dc. Well he worked at the pentagon. Abby went to grad school for international relations. But the more time she spent with the commander the more abby sense to something just wasn't quite right. What i made you suspicious. Me told me he had met his first. The first ex wife who's really his second ex wife but his first when he rescued her when she was held hostage in iran. And i said the age didn't add up. I said when we in iran he said oh it was a secret mission. You wouldn't have heard about it really well. And then i thought okay the someone has to do these jobs like better better. Decoy this nerdy asthmatic. Doctor you know like like why not and then. He told me that he worked at guantanamo as the medical director which he did that was part of the problem is that he kind of mixed fiction and fact together and one of his patients was a very wanted terrorist named osama bin laden. And i said that is impossible. And he said the president doesn't know and then i got like all you know. Carrie mathison a homeland. Like god. who's the jihadist. And who's not and who knows what it was. I was gasoline making myself crazy. Suddenly abby found herself using her reporting skills to investigate her own fiance she talked to professors about whether the commanders impressive stories could even be possible. Never like yeah. That's the possible. The final straw was when we went out to dinner with my parents. And we had brussel sprouts and he raved about the brussels sprouts and when we got out he said that meal was awful and i said why did you lie. And he said. I wanted to make them feel better. And that's when. I said you know what i'm out. There's no need to lie about something like okay. So so he was treating been logging and the president to know about it but it was. The brussels sprouts praised that gave him away in the end. I knew they weren't good but more than that. He admitted that he had lied. He said i wanted to make them feel good. And i thought you lie so beautifully which has flowed out of him. If you could lie about that you could lie about anything when you finally did confront him. How did he react to that. Well i left him. I said i'm out. So i never talk to him again. And i didn't find out until a year and a half later that he in fact had been stealing identities and when he was a drug addict. And i got a call from ncis and they said you know there's a doctor who's been writing prescriptions for vicodin and he's been using a bunch of people's names and identities and you're one of the people. Do you know this guy. Do you ever prescription. And i said well. No 'cause i prefer valium and so of course but anyway so he went to jail to make a statement against him. I just started researching all this stuff about this guy. Heaven the guy you're about to marry steal your identity is obviously different than casey's going through but it actually has a lot more in common with her situation than you might think abbas wrestled with the kind of psychological trauma that really defines any breach of trust. And she understands the obsession. That's now leading. Casey to work twenty hour weekends on her case. So you're in this kind of like luminol space of you may be probably sort of know them. But you don't know and you're not sure if you're ever gonna find out right. Can you kind of describe where you are with all this well. I kind of actually have this idea that i might want to sort of help other victims by maybe writing a book about the experience. I guess what i'm trying to do. Is you know sort of gather information about how other people handled it and how they move forward with their lives. But i don't necessarily want focus too much on our case. Because i feel like it's not mentally healthy evian. You've seen more people get duped and cope with getting duped than the next by by a long shot. So i'm curious to hear sort of your take on. What's the most interesting thing to me is. When i was reading the book was a how many people i spoke to. Who had been duped and most people didn't wanna talk about it or use their real name because everybody felt completely humiliated. So when you talk about writing a book to help people and what i tried to do anyway is at least make people feel less stupid. And if you're gonna feel stupid that's okay because everybody's stupid then

Defense Department pauses plan to vaccinate Guantanamo detainees
"The pentagon is announcing their pausing their plan to vaccinate the inmates at guantanamo. Apparently somebody in the public affairs shop depending on the new guy. John kirby maybe you remember him. When he was a pentagon spokesman when he was a navy admiral he was third. And then he i forget he resurfaced as state department in civilian sued. Now he's back with a biden administration easy assistant secretary of defense for public affairs and he released a day earlier today after after considerable pushback from family members of nine eleven victims as we come up on the twenty th anniversary of by the way who couldn't believe that the mastermind of nine eleven was going to get a vaccine before americans are any american and he tweeted out. Quote no guantanamo detainees have been vaccinated. Were pausing the plan to move forward. As we review force protection protocols we remain committed to our obligations. Keep our troops safe close going so in other words. He's trying to say oh. No no no. We're going to vaccinate all the troops first and then if there's any left college muhammad will get it still. Pretty pretty galling
Trump entertained plan to install an attorney general who would help him pursue baseless election fraud claims
"Lead story. Today comes from the new york times and they say quote. The justice department's top leaders listened in stunned silence this month. One of their peers. They were told had devised a plan. Along with trump to oust. Jeffrey rosen as acting attorney. General and we'll the department's power to force georgia state. Lawmakers to overturn the presidential election results. This unassuming lawyer. Who worked on the plans names. Jeffrey clarke had been devising ways to cast doubt on the election results to bolster trump's continuing legal battles and the pressure on georgia politicians. Because mr jeffrey rosen had refused the president's entreaties to carry out those plans mr trump was about to decide whether to fire. Mr rosen and replace him with mr kark danial remember. We were talking about like. who's this. Jeffrey rosen person. And i was like well his career official. I don't think he's going to go along with the bullshit. Turns out we were right. He did not go along with the bullshit. The department officials convened on a conference. Call then ask each other. what would you do. If mr rosen was dismissed and the answer was unanimous. they would all resign in protest They're informed packed. Ultimately persuaded trump. To keep rosen in place calculating that a furor over mass resignations at the top of the justice department would eclipse any attention on his baseless accusations. Voter fraud so he didn't he didn't do it for the right reasons. He said If you everyone resigned and mass it would take. He wouldn't say and mass if everyone was designed all at once. Take away attention from my lies. And so he didn't and trump's decision came only after rosen and clark made their competing cases to him in a bizarre white house meeting to officials compared with an episode of the apprentice albeit one that could prompt a constitutional crisis. This should be looked at and light of the impeachment article that will be sent to the senate as majority leader. Chuck schumer has agreed to delay the impeachment trial until february eighth. Some people think that this shows weakness. I do not. I think this was a calculated political shrewd. Move by chuck schumer. I think it allows more evidence to come out about the insurrection which will make it more difficult for republicans to acquit. And i wanna be clear here not because they have morals but because voters do and voters will be holding them responsible It's going to be more morally difficult for them to acquit. And a lot of people say well. We had the momentum. Right after the insurrection to get this vote to acquit and then additional vote to prevent it from running for office again. But that's not the case they wouldn't have had seventeen republicans and they still don't today but as we start to learn more we may be able to push more republicans over the edge and again not because they have morals but because the people who vote them into office do and some of that evidence came to light this weekend including the arrest of a man who had plans to assassinate alexandria. Ocasio cortez self-styled militia members from virginia ohio and states also made plans to storm the capital days in advance and then communicated in real time as they breached the building on both sides and talked about hunting for lawmakers and that's according to court documents filed tuesday while authorities have charged more than one hundred individuals in the riott details in the new allegations against three. Us military veterans offer a very disturbing look at what they allegedly said to one another before during and after the attack statements that indicate a degree of preparation determination to rush deep into the halls and tons of congress to make citizens arrests of elected officials and they even mentioned sealed sealing off the tunnels and and putting gas in them. Us authorities charged the apparent leader of the oath keepers That's an extremist group. Thomas caldwell sixty six of virginia. They're all from virginia in the attack. Alleging that the navy veteran helped organize a ring of dozens who coordinated their movements as they quote stormed the castle to disrupt the confirmation of biden's electoral college victory. Despite this current department of justice officials and federal law enforcement officials are privately debating whether they should declined to charge some of the individuals who stormed the capital so politically loaded proposition. But one alert to the practical concern that hundreds of such cases cases could swamp the local courthouse. You know tough shit. Internal discussions are in the early stages. No decisions have been reached whether to forego charging some of these folks and that's according to multiple people familiar with the discussions and we also learned that trump's campaign paid more than two point seven million dollars over two years to individuals and firms that organized the january sixth rally that led to the riot And that's according to the center for responsive politics and these payments which span trump's reelection campaign. Show an ongoing financial relationship between rally organizers and trump's political operation they were all made through november twenty third the most recent date covered by the federal election commission filings. Which is before the rally was publicly announced. I'm sure we'll see more in the next. Fcc filing so. That's where we are.
You're Going Somewhere. Are You Going Where You Want to Be Going?
"This is the jaakko underground podcast number. Four with echo. Charles in me jaakko willink good evening echo. Also joining us. Good deal dave good. Evening gave all right. Let's get into the topic of the day. So i know we. We recorded a podcast earlier today. About the marine corps document and Called competing and i of through some stuff at you today. Kind of the in that opening talking about this this leadership and influence continuum so i had neck issues my neck menaka had. I had a problem with my neck. I had woke up one day. This was years ago. I woke up one day and couldn't move. My right arm didn't move So so imagine that you wake up and you can't be right arm. Had some so mean went to the doctor and they started figuring out what to do. Because i had basically some problems in my neck that was causing friction on the nerves. That control my right arm. So i had to do some physical therapy in of and eventually it said they said you know you're gonna need to get surgery to fix this problem. Okay so They gave me basically two options. Well one option was. Don't get surgery in your the longer. It's in this condition the worst chance. It has of recovering. So that's not good but you can't do it if you don't wanna take any chances of getting surgery so the two options so one was called a frame anatomy which they go in through the back of your neck and they basically chip away at some bone and they give the they give some breathing room for your nerves. The other one they gave is the other option. They gave us get a fusion where they go off the front of your neck and they basically carve a bunch of bone out and then they fused your neck together so they can't move that one is considered to be the has has a superior result m- most of the time it's also the last. It's also the last resort. Also you can't escalate from there the other one if you let's say you got the frame and the one going through the back and it didn't go well. I didn't have the impact that you wanted to to have. Well then you could go well. It didn't really work the way i wanted to now. I wanna get the other one so you at least had one more option so as i considered this actually there was a. There's the you talk through the possible problems that you could have one of the problems and this was back in the day so one of the problems that you can have when you get a fusion going through the interior of your neck of the your neck when they're going in there they're close to your vocal cords and they can cut your vocal cords and you can't talk anymore which back then. It's kind of scary to think now. Since the only thing i do for a living is talk. That would not have been cool. And i was thinking at the time. Well i i'm in a leadership position. I need to be able to talk to people that could be a problem. Also there's you can die. You know you can. They can just screw up and you can just paralyze you or they can kill you so as i'm talking to the doctor. Who was the best neurosurgeon in the milit- in the navy on the west coast at the time he was the really skilled guy and i you know he said so. You die you this. And that. And i said yeah you know what are the chances i mean what i said. How many how. Many sides are on that dice. Though said like ten thousand and he goes about two hundred. I said to myself. That's okay not exactly what i wanted to hear. But then i told him i said hey. Listen if i can if my friends can get hit with giant pieces of shrapnel flying through the air and live. I'm sure you would a scalpel on sterilized. Surgery table you can make this happen. And so i ended up choosing the frame and autumn me to go in through the back and the main reason why i chose it is because you can escalate from there i had room to maneuver right. I there was some place to go. If the fusion front fusion doesn't get the desired result. You're just stuck with no with with that. That's what you're stuck with so we don't want to paint ourselves into a corner. As far as i can tell i never wanna pay myself with. Do co. corner. I never wanna leave myself without any options. I don't want to dig in to a particular position. I want to be in a situation. That i can't get out of and this is why it's such a strange thing because that should be your attitude. As far as i'm concerned. I don't know i'm in my opinion. Your attitude should be. I don't want to be stuck in a position. She feel to feel wrong. If you're trapping yourself in a position which is weird because there's a counter to that. Which is you have to be super determined right you have to be. You have to be super determined
Samantha Tomaszewski, social strategy leader, BuzzFeed, on career in social media audience engagement
"Today. We're gonna talk about audience work samantha. I think maybe a useful place to start might be with you. You're of course the social strategists of commerce for buzzfeed. He told me exactly what that means. Yeah so i. Focused specifically on buzzfeed has an entire shopping and commerce. Vertical on that helps generate revenue for the site so i focus on the Social strategy that has to do specifically with. Yeah our shopping. Vertical commerce that we have different facebook and instagram account We should affiliations through the app. Trying to get people to view and hopefully convert and shop from buzzfeed shopping's content and you'll training is actually journalism. Right yes yeah. I went to lehigh. University and i studied journalism political science. So how'd you go from as journalists to to what you do now because they seem slightly not far apart but they of course. Different skills and disciplines. Yeah an. I honestly think this is why i enjoy doing a lot of like student. Mentorship conversations is something that i do in my spare time because i love to talk to students about how i went from my studies university to Where i am now and the kind of important middle pieces. I also worked for huffpost for about three years as an audience editor. That was definitely more than new space before. I made the transition to commerce but it was definitely my treating from school. That got me there where i did study. You know a lot of social media. And i worked for my student newspaper editor-in-chief so i think a lot of practical experience that i get in college was able to help me leverage interviews and opportunities that they did come up after i graduated. This is going to be useful for more. We're about to about to talk about what i don't understand is where does your journalistic thread really still help you today. yeah i think in conversations with students are being active on twitter. And i think yeah. It's definitely helped me again. Even though i am in the commerce face now that i do approach it from maybe a different perspective somebody who has a marketing background or a different sort of training. And i think that's helped me sort of succeed in that role in yet. Maybe look at marketing ecommerce from a different lens at a different angle that kind of that journalistic training and news is still kind of always been like my passionate. My background yes. It's been cool to kind of approach. A new different challenge in like a slightly different discipline. With that lens. so samantha at the stop december. You had a twitter thread which seemed to go on a quite a bit of attention and just gonna take a few moments to read through that for our audience who may not seen it. You say i was on the mentoring cool with a student about to graduate college and she told me that a member of a fairly popular journalism organization gave her some discouraging advice. This person told her not to go into audience work. she was taught. That should be better off working in a reporter all covering political committee even if no one read her work. I was shocked. And that's really the main part of the the tweet you to talk about the kind of skills that you acquire through working in social and how that might help to make you a better journalist editor in chief had of audience etc and basically saying the audience. Work is a valid career path for me. What kind of stuck out with this. And what seemed to be the main thrust of the compensation that audience roles in journalism at least are perhaps not taking seriously as some of the more traditional roles still existent in the newsroom. So can you recap on. Wherever where this threat came from the impetus for that was sure. Yeah i expected to take off as much as it did but obviously it was very encouraging to see that so many people have strong reactions to it. And we're coming out in support of what. I was saying that that was great and i think it was just that i had spoken to the student and i had such like a you know on one hand infuriating but on the other hand like poignant sort of anecdote from her about somebody telling her that she shouldn't go into audience work in that she would be better off being a reporter doing work that nobody was even reading which doesn't really make sense to me. That was just. She clearly had been so affected by being told that even though her passion was an audience. I just wanted to try and you know in my conversation with her. I tried to tell her that. That certainly wasn't true. I've been able to find a path for it myself. But i just wanted to speak to that to the journalism community at large in some way Because i was so shocked that someone would tell like a growing journalists that I'm not asking you to to name drop of course but can you be more specific about the type of news organization. That had sort discouraged her in this way. And i don't even she didn't even name. I don't know the individual who it was and that's obvious he never would. It was about but you know a fairly large digital mu organization in one that does promote journalism and digital media yagi Specific affiliation with the organization. Or anything like that. You know what. I'm trying to get a picture of where that kind of attitude has come from. We're talking about you said digital media company based in the us deny yes legacy your print media. That's what was interesting is that it was coming from somewhere that i wouldn't have expected this sort of advice navy to come from interest and in your experiences this like an isolated event. You hear this a lot. Yeah i mean. I think i've also experienced a lot. Even you know by career so far in you know. Both of the newsroom's i've worked in and buzzfeed Post there obviously. The vast majority of people are incredibly supportive of the audience team. But i do think it is sometimes struggle to get your foot in the door in certain meetings or to get your opinions out by certain journalists. Who may be you know are entrenched in some of these older schools of thought about what even is audience worker. Why is it important. So i think i've seen that. There is still a learning process. Even when i've been in newsrooms trying to do the work that i do cleaning they'll put you off. No no because. I think it is. It is important so i think it's really rewarding when you do maybe get through to somebody who didn't understand how you can help them in. Their story goes viral on twitter. Because you mockup a tweet thread. That does really well. Then they see the value of it. I think there's constantly a need for audience enters to try to prove and show results and data for what they're doing and i do you know have found that rewarding as well to be able to show people like. Here's what we can do to elevate your work like look at works that it's really exciting. So i mean the thrust of that conversation. Was it very much. That audience roles are just not as integral to the newsroom. Or was it that they just kind of look down on a as i said from the beginning like not taking seriously. What was called the main bone of contention like disgust here. Yeah i mean. I think all of those things are potentially depending yet. I think who you're talking to. I think obviously. I was speaking to the student as like a career conversation. She was about to graduate and she was trying to figure out what she should pursue. So i think it was. You know maybe they aren't as integral to newsroom so she shouldn't do it because maybe they're not stability there but again i know i shared with her. You know it's just one experience. But i have. I've experienced stability in far in my career. you know. obviously they're always layoffs in media yet. I think against you that if you wanted to have a future in journalism she was getting told that maybe this wasn't the right path for her. Because i think that was another point in my thread is she has an interest in politics. She was getting told. You know if you wanna go into political journalism you have to be like a beat reporter and that's the only way you can get there but again i don't really think that's true and something else. I tried to outline in my throat is how many great skills you do learn being an audience that can transfer to being reported. You know people who have moved into production or product or any sort of area in media and beyond so. I think i was really just trying to emphasize that it is a valid career path. We shouldn't be telling young journalists that it's not

Give give give us kind of the overview of your journey from you know not knowing anything about photography publishing an amazing book like dream that you know i. It's it's really very very very unique. Journey is just the it started with Graduated seal training and ninety six class to await from there. It went to silting to Did a bunch of deployments was silting created. Seal team ten. So that shifted me over silty mate but there were talking about like liberia. Were afghanistan iraq. So it was like four. Five combat deployments before i got a break and when i got a break that's in the navy airforce auto the air force's rotation but the navy break is five and two so it's five years deploying two years at a advanced training command. Get your senses back together train and then get back out there For me it was ten years. But when i got out there i got sent out to military freefall school in arizona and it's joint commands. Were there with like army navy with that. You know that's where my journey began this two thousand and seven and you know actually even be out there teaching free like ours. I was already a navy seal for ten years. I had to be a basic wall. Which is your static. Line basic military freefall called basic static. Line jump master military freefall jump master and then when i got out there ended up being a military freefall instructor military. Freefall instructor examiner And so An accelerated freefall Accelerated freefall coach excessive rainfall instructor essen. Tna select basic all the calls for air and then a everything. Now you're jumping out of a c. One thirty at sixteen thousand feet with With new operators never jump before and you tap on the show them the jump out and my job was just hang with them and just with the mix. You don't screw up getting getting back straight whatever they need to do and make sure they poll and and go from there and then i I started doing video because video. And what you're gonna learn at military freefall because you can't see what you're doing because you're you're free some students are all over the place you know and so do the video but one morning It was really really early. I don't know what. I think we're trying to beat some weather pattern. That was coming in and we were like literally. The ramp is open on like like probably five. Am just as the sun is like creeping up and the whole desert was just like beautiful reds yellows oranges and i was like man. I should Somebody should take a picture of this is really cool and then i'm like oh i guess i should figure that out you know are and so. That's soy started. Just google unlike the went to dr google photography you know and then that started my journey and the number you know it just you learn and then i go to barnes and noble. As a matter of fact. I went to barnes and noble at my old seal team to dive log from my last a combat dives that i did and i went all the way to the back. Full of the paged. I put my semi kids over to the kids section. You know when. I sat there like digital photography. Open up books going. Wow this is this is going to be interesting. And then i take notes and put the book back. You know. i'm that guy. Sorry i'm the guy. I would well at that time. He knows i'm in the military. I had three kids. You know with that. You're obviously for me that my life is unhappily married so to me it was. I was broke and i can feel the book. Twenty five bucks. I'm like well. I gotta take my kids to you know to the movies so i'm like i'd so it's anyway long story short right down. That's what i did. You know that studies up. Google stuff and then like what i found in my journey was like why can't definitely can't afford a camera but every article that i read always led to the digital darker everything was about. Hey you do the setting but in digital darkroom. This is what knew this setting here for wipeouts. You'll fix that and camera this. This is the color settings. This is your kelvin. This is what it needs to be like what the hell is all that. So ryan down. And then i got really smart because it have a camera. I really really studied the digital darkroom side.

"So this letter comes out. And you know this captain is really making the case that I need to get my sailors off of this ship because it's just not safe for them. I can't guarantee their safety and were not at war. He makes this point of. We don't need to be in a wartime stance with can get people off this ship and very quickly. There's this kind of jumbled response from the Navy one superior comes out supporting the captain and then acting head of the navy comes in and says no no no no. This is not how we do this spray. Yeah I you know I want to give I wanNA give Crozier's chain of command a little benefit of doubt here because of the unprecedented nature of the problem that he was really losing to them. This is what I mean when I say the viruses a bit of an existential problem for the military part of that is because the service members of every rank is been trained to see lethality readiness for combat as the highest values higher than your personal well-being. It's ground into you from the first day you put on uniform and what Crozier The Roosevelt's captain is basically suggesting posing to his superiors. Is that's an easy thing to tell servicemembers for a service members to say into practice in a shooting war our objective is clear but when there's no violent threat on the horizon how much of this lethal readiness is too much and so he made that point of we can fight still if you need us to even with the virus raging. Because that's what we do. We are sailors worship. But we're not at war with anybody right now. So there's no reason for my sailors to die and that seems pretty clear. Cut To all of us who have several weeks to sit home and think about it as we do when we read it online for. Crozier's commanders in the navy and for the entire. Dod This is not just a challenge but really a gauntlet that's been thrown of how much of our readiness posture are. We really ready for side in order to protect our people from the Cyrus That's I think why this sort of memo hit everybody really hard in the service also because it looked like a black eye when it got out it seemed embarrass him. Crozier's letter was quickly leaked to the press. The Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Moseley. He was under immediate pressure to respond along with other officials in the trump administration. What's interesting to me about the response immediately? After crozier's memo gets out into the public is how there wasn't any coherent one it was everybody's saying different things so. Mobley immediately got on to the news and told CNN. You know we're working on it. We have a plan in place which was true because he was in communications with captain. Kosher and his staff at that point that same afternoon. Molly's boss security defense mark effort gets on the evening news. Says I haven't made any decision and I haven't read the letter in full. Why have not had a chance to read that letter? Read it in detail again. I'm going to rely on the navy chain of command to go out there to assess the situation and to make sure they provide the captain and the crew all the support. They need to get the sailors healthy and get the ship back at sea near on the same page. The Secretary of the Navy and the Secretary of Defense and it was just the beginning of this massive schism. I think that's happening right now between civilian and military leadership. What do you mean when you say that regardless of who encroach Captain Crozier's chain of command was against his requests and they were maximum requests? You start to see a real difference. Between how the admirals an how the political appointees are dealing with. This and the admirals will they still had a ship and captain to deal with and so they are still looking for. How do we get these sailors off and affected investigation into what happened? But the political appointees specifically molly an expert just seems like they were completely foundering and looking for a political mitigation tactics. That might save them face eventually. These face saving tactics ramped up. Acting Secretary Moodley got captain closure on the phone and they had a pretty good heart to heart and mildly. Insisted publicly. That we're not gonNA shoot the Messenger here the next day. He relieves grocer and he does it with this language. It says you know Crozier's judgment was just obviously overwhelmed by the challenges in front of him and we have to get him out of the situation but firing a captain who so fiercely advocated for his sailors. It did not go over well. Cursor gets fired is relieved of his command and so he has to leave the ship and the way that most of the public finds out about this is by video shared on social media of him disembarking from the ship and droves of sailors on board the Roosevelt cheering him on. How is that? Like how as as a sailor I forget as a sailor as a journalist like I was talking about this with other military reporters than they were all like. We have never seen anything like that until the next day. When secretary mildly decides to fly out to the TR to give his own addressed to the to the sailors of the ship over the one MC the main intercom and that was another unprecedented event where he basically again speaking to several thousand subordinates ages eighteen to mid forties and says well you know you're captain was either too stupid or too naive to realize that was going to that letter was going to get out to the public and give the navy a black guy and I don't know where where we on this pod with profanities go for it so Tasked purpose of military focused news and culture site that I once worked for. They got audio of secretary. Molly actually giving this speech and at the point where he calls Captain Crozier to too stupid or Tunein Eve. You could literally hear one of the listening sailors go.

"Over the last week Adam. Weinstein has been thinking back on his early days in the military. So Adam you're in the navy for how long just four years but I've been either working in or covering military establishment since then Adams National Security editor at the new republic. Now you talked about this poem that guys in the Navy learn. Can you tell me about it so when you go to the Naval Academy you go in for your first day? It's called Induction Day. I Day they take you in. They issue you uniforms. They shave your head. They put you in your room and teach you how to make your bed and Close and then they give you this small book called Refinance Which is called the Bible? And you have to memorize all of this information in this Bible and this is a process that all the service Japanese have but it navy they have this one particular poem that you're also required to memorize called the laws of the navy. The Laws of the Navy is a poem that's all about teamwork and obedience. It's this one stanza about taking on your chain of command. It concludes his well with seniors to fight. They prosper who burned in the morning. The letters they wrote overnight. I think it's remarkable that at the same time that know. They're teaching prospective naval officers to Tell Port from starboard the rules of the road when you're actually underway and ship. They're also telling you hey. Be careful what you put in writing this lesson. It's been top of mind for Adams Week as an angry letter from the captain of US worship 'cause Navy brass to publicly implode that captain a guy named Brett Crozier was desperately trying to get his sailors off the US. Roosevelt as the corona virus spread on board but releasing a letter. It just isn't the way the navy does things. The first thing I thought of was the laws of the navy and while that's a letter that's probably going to end a sailor's career but it was also one that seemed like it was really necessary. And it definitely struck a nerve from the American public right now while we're stay at home quarantines and looking at how the military is dealing with these same issues that we are today. I mean you've said that the military you think is actually more vulnerable than the outside world to the krona virus. Would you mean by that? Yeah it's it comes down to. This is a very large bureaucracy. That has a very specific mission and mission is not one that lends itself very easily to a self quarantine or social distancing or any of the precautionary measures. You need to take in contagion.

"Of the US Roosevelt and he got on the one MC which is the intercom that addresses the entire ship and he proceeded to give a speech that upbraided Captain Crozier. Come Out I ask. Some sailors were scrambled to record the speech. Because was almost unbelievable to have the secretary of the navy talking about a captain. And this way Moseley said that Captain Crozier was either stupid or naive was my opinion information was the quiz going to get out into the public. In this information age that we live in that he was a too naive or too stupid to be the commanding officer ship. Like this said that he hadn't probably the chain of command trail trust with me command. Would you eight hundred thousand people or your shipmates Astro right now? He said that The Navy was looking out for the sailors best interests and they should know that. I talk about that when secretary tone. It's almost like he's scolding the captain that he is just relieved and wanting to remind all the sailors aboard of what it means to have good order and discipline and to do their jobs and to trust that the navy will take care of them. How did the crew on board the ship react during the speech? Will there's a One leaked copy of the of the Audio Speech. As the acting secretary is speaking. There's sailor who blurts out our profanity win. The acting secretary said something derogatory about Captain Crozier and as soon as this speech was over. People were talking about it. Sailors talking about it just like Crozier's memo quickly leaked to the press so did recordings of Modi's speech and people off. The ship Heard Moseley speech. It did not go over well. Almost immediately he was. He started receiving criticism. There were calls from lawmakers and folks in Congress advocacy groups said while Moodley said Captain Crozier had exhibited poor judgment folks. Were saying that maybe Mr Mode leads the one who has lost control and wasn't exhibiting a good grasp of command and the Secretary of Defense and even the president expressing concern over the way things were handled. You have to good people and they were arguing and I'm good. Believe or not at settling arguments. I'm good at settling these arguments so I may look into it in great detail in detail and it'll be able to figure it out very fast and soon enough. The Secretary of defense was demanding. That acting secretary mode issuing apology mode apologized and walked back his characterization of crozier saying he believed the captain is quote. Smart in passionate. But that apology wasn't enough and the backlash against grew and people including house speaker. Nancy Pelosi called for his resignation resignation. That modality gave yesterday. So where does this all leave the navy right now? Well Moley was just the acting secretary. He was not a Senate confirmed secretary of the Navy. The Under Secretary of the army has now been called over to act as the head of the navy. We still have every day. More sailors from the Roosevelt are testing positive. For covert. You have far-flung basis that are still dealing with these issues and at the end of the day you still got the mission that the Roosevelt ultimately needed to do which is project. Power and keep America's interests safe abroad. Which is the enduring mission. That's got to happen in the background of all this which it seems like they probably can't even do right now because not only are they docked but also more and more of their sailors are contracting the virus every day the Navy says the Roosevelt could set sail if needed to but the ship has a number of sailors who have tested positive for Co vid nineteen and the reason that they steamed to Guam and put into port. Early was because of concerns that more and more people would get. The focus of this story has really come to be about Crozier and Moseley and the response. But I'm wondering where does it leave all of these sailors from the USS Roosevelt? Right now I did speak with a sailor who was in quarantine at a hotel and I said what's it like being on quarantine and sailor said. It's it's nice we're in hotels it's just as Captain Crozier wished for more than two hundred and thirty sailors from the US. Roosevelt have now tested positive for the krona virus including according to reports this ships former captain captain crozier..

"So what Mr. Moly set in fact. Was he worried that the president seen what had happened about this letter being released? The president would intervene an order the captain to be dismissed before the Navy could even act on it and that would be further embarrassment. The Navy Mr Moley was basically trying to preempt the president from doing what he feared he might do. So what happens after the Navy secretary possibly preempting the President Fires Crozier so on Monday? Mr Mode trying to tamp down the fuhrer of his dismissal of the captain through eight thousand miles to Guam to address the crew aboard the ship he gets on the intercom system.

Lawmakers reacting outraged that he would not just criticize the captain which you've already done but criticized the crew This was just too much and by Monday. Night said regards to Captain Crozier before usage. President is asked about. It will be a bad week does that. I don't want to look into it. And I also and for the president who had initially supported Captain Crozier's firing now. He seems to be having second thoughts. It looks to me like he's an outstanding. I looked I looked at his. All trump says maybe he's not such a bad guy after all you know. Maybe I can help the situation out. I mean you guys say. Why is the president getting involved in well? I like to solve problems. It's a problem you know. And so there's a hint that the president may once again intervene in this case but not the way that the Navy secretary feared in the opposite way. That's right and maybe reinstate the captain that's when shortly after that in a letter overnight mostly writing. I want to apologize to the navy. Mr Moly issues this late night apology. I do not think Captain Brett Crozier is naive stupid. He is smart and passionate. I believe precisely because he is not not even stupid that he sent his alarming email with the intention of getting it into the public domain. And by late Tuesday afternoon Mr Modal resigns and it just kind of underscores the turmoil within the ranks of the Navy right now but it also kind of shows the turmoil within the Pentagon overall and this kind of revolving door because remember Mr Modalities and acting secretary. He replaced a guy who was fired last November and he in turn will be placed by another acting secretary so the navy leadership now has gone through three different secretaries and just a few short months. Eric you've been covering this from the moment that letter became public and you have been covering the military for years. And what do you make of this entire episode? It is extraordinary and I think what you have here is a conflict between in many ways the come storied history of the United States military specifically United States Navy with its hierarchy. It's chains of command set against a very unusual enemy this once in a century pandemic and also a very unusual and unpredictable president and caught in the middle of all this are the sailors the sailors aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt with pandemic spreading through their ranks. Even as they sit on the docks in Guam. And it's those sailors who are kind of looking both to their captain. There now departed captain and to Washington for some help. How do we get out of this? And how do we get back to our mission safely? What's the answer? I mean? What has happened to these five thousand sailors on the US Roosevelt? Well roughly half of the sailors have come off the ship. Some are in quarters on the naval base in Guam. Some have been put up in private hotels there more than one hundred and fifty cases of sailors who tested positive so this process will go on for no doubt weeks until the crew is healthy enough and the ship is clean enough again for the crew did get back on and go on. Its Way and continue. Its Mission Eric. It sounds like captain crozier. Pretty much got what he asked for. The military is more or less emptying this ship and putting people in quarantine right. I think you're right. And most important. He got the navy to focus is attention even more on these sailors which is what he wanted all along. What do you expect is going to happen to Captain Crozier? We'll kept enclosure. Right now. Is in quarantine in Guam. He actually tested positive for corona virus. Himself so he is waiting friends. Say He's doing okay right now. But otherwise the navy has said he would be reassigned to his desk job in San Diego but with all the twists and turns of last few days. The man who fired crozier has now been fired himself. And there's talk that Captain Crozier could possibly be reinstated. There's a petition going online. With more than two hundred and fifty thousand signatures demanding that he be reinstated. So the fate of Captain Crozier his still to be decided.

"Back out in Guam captain. Crozier is packing up his things. And is he walks down the gangway off the ship to an awaiting car and it's a scene. It's just remarkable Michael and that the whole crew. That's gathered hundreds in this huge hangar bay or chanting and cheering for the captain in. Close Your Captain Crozier. They're thinking him because by now they've read the letter they know what's happened here in.

I mean it seems very clear from that that the navy is not just at odds with the captain of the ship but with its own sailors there so how did that huge gap form between the top brass and the rank and file so import that division is created essentially by the priorities that the military overall has with the military's job is. It's I to be ready for Combat Secretary of the Navy. The defense secretary. They have to worry about threats and how they would respond to them. Whereas the captain's immediate view is that he's worried about the health of his crew. But there's another important factor in all this and that's president trump for these civilian leaders back in Washington at the Defense Department and the navy. They're worried of how president trump is going to view this and they've got good reason to worry now. President trump has ignored advice from his military and absolve three. Us service members accused of warcrimes. Mr The president has actively meddled in criminal investigations in the military president has intervened on the behalf of accused war criminals was charged with the murder of an Afghan bombmaker and overturned their punishments repeatedly and Mr Trump reinstated navy seal Eddie Gallagher to the rank of chief petty officer after he was convicted of posing with the corpse of an Isis detainee Navy secretary was fired. The Navy secretary is out asked to resign over his handling of disgraced navy. Seal Eddie Gallagher Richard Spencer in trying to deal with one of these interventions that the president did and so the president has gotten into the heads of civilian leaders including the navy..

"Too many navy bean savings. Navy beans are are making for some sloppy joe sloppy joes and the worst of all though those navy beans navy beans navy beans <hes> because the recent d._o._d. Study found that what chaps a recent study found that the navy earned the dubious honor surpassing all the branches and the rate of obese personnel which i would have guessed some people were saying like task and purpose and military dot com or saying. They're surprised that <hes> a branch that's known lovingly. I mean this seriously lovingly as the chair force wouldn't be the fattest branch of the military. I would have guessed that navy just based on the folks that i have worked with in the past there chubby bunnies for a lot of them. I think with the amount of people that are on ships and i know you can work out on ships. I know they have areas to work out but i just feel like there isn't a propensity to work out when you're underwater just out to sea for large periods of time so this is actually. I don't think it's that surprising yeah yeah and it's not just the navy it's overall the rate of fat servicemembers is up in recent years with percentage of personnel weighing in at obese standards climbing over seventeen percent it according to a health of the d._o._d. For study seventeen percent of all dod personnel are overweight that number spiked to over a quarter of a service dismembers over the age of thirty five which is not surprising at all if you if you lined up a group of senior chief especially our master sergeants you'll be like those are some shabby kids. You're like tenured professors who are like bad. I can't really fire me so fucking like they just don't think some of them just don't care anymore anymore. And it's hard i mean i imagine now like putting myself in that position now. So if i would have stayed in i would be in like fifteen. You're sixteen years at this point. Oh yeah dude i run and three miles and under twenty one minutes like a respectable time twenty two twenty three minutes that shit would be very difficult for me. I don't think dies off to all that shit so yeah. It's been spiking hugely but especially. I think it's also the number. Let's get into just the number of the overall overall personnel. This is everybody not just over age. Thirty five further navy twenty two percent of all navy personnel are obese like like clinically overweight obese. Yeah that's eighteen percent from the air force seventeen percent of the army which is that's higher than i thought it would have been for the marine corps comes in at eight point three percent. They didn't give us the numbers on our beloved coastguard because they're the department of homeland security this dod survey <hes> but eight point three percent for the marine corps little high thought that was a little high also. I love this this note. They put him while the marine corps was the least overrated the bunch. They had the marines with the highest rate of knee and back injuries so we're the most fit and we have the worst knee and back injuries. Why is that the shit out of because we're out there just crushing allen yep pounding pavement. I also liked it. The survey took lucas shot another shot at the navy by saying they have the lowest incident of injury like that's another way like the navy doesn't do shit it right and it said how much of that could be related to inactivity was not determined yeah yeah determining it for you right now but listen to this and i i think when i think of the whole scuttle but with banning the transgender troops in how many i saw online while it's costing too it'll cost too much money. I need to have transgender troops blah blah. It was like a million or something a year overweight and obese active duty military cost the d- d._o._d. One hundred and three million a year in the forum of over over almost six over six hundred fifty thousand loss workdays so how do you why do you not going health related concerns with it. It's like branching out for if you're obese. There's a ton of a ton of different heart issues. Neil shoes all those type of things. Come across the root cause of it. I guess it'd be being overweight. I think the number for transgender ginger troop was actually thirteen. Million is what the actual number was last year my eight hundred eight million. It's it's crazy that i think that almost a quarter of an entire branch could be overweight getting together will say this though buoyancy big deal in the navy they might right neilan something maybe it's specific to their branch and also i blame the food services has been getting better and better. The halls are getting better and better bring us back. They would ladle a nice gruel into a bowl for you. You know like police i some. All you know that kind of thing. I love that me miss like pussy uh-huh posey. Please folks have gotten better also. Let me ask you something you you mentioned when you were fifteen sixteen years. You'd probably be some sort of staff position at this point right. Oh yeah i mean i talked to a buddy of mine now like if i was still in i'd be a sergeant the major now right right. That's part of the problem too as you as you go up in rank. You are more accountable for yourself in other words doing doing p._t. In the morning and it's just like oh ick it is expected that you would just go on your own and i'm sure there's plenty of days right. I do this that and the other thing so. I'm not not gonna do p._t. Today because i know once i got to have certain positions it was just on me to be working out a little bit easier to it's not like where if you are or a young troop in your entire p._t. Regiment falls on you in your platoon now as a first sergeant even as as e seven or whatever you want to go work got it launched by and large you have that time you could share. Nobody's gonna say anything to you like if the first sergeant major like hey sir had over to go during child is now going to be like like hell. You are sorry now you're right. You're right. I was definitely practicing yoga at lunchtime. Oh yeah well as they say to like the problems ballooning for the navy. I think one of the motivating things for me. When i used to t- joe thank you was seeing the older marines like the higher ranking marines. All mine were shit hot and they it could crush any of us in p._t._a. Even the high ranking all like even the guys like ford late forties and fifties and it was so motivated because you're like well if they're doing it. I can do it too. If if you're in the navy and your leadership ain't doing shit if they said the bulk of this is people over thirty five and the high ranking then how who are they to tell you to get in shape yeah tell them selves type thing. That's that's tough to swallow. Gonna do bad bitch and then you just run away. They're not gonna you know so. I think that's what yeah yeah so i. I don't know if this joke is going to translate well podcast or not but me and my buddy actually dropped his given christian name mike huntley was his name and and we were that's his actual name lately it so we used to work together on quantico and we had this master guns zeh masturbating scott. I think i've told a story about master scott to whenever i was the company gunnery sergeant how he came in he was pissed off. It was the first day i was actually got promoted to staff. Sergeant sergeant grabbed an ammo can full of cigarette butts in your office yeah same guy. This dude was well into his forties as has a master guns and nine in the marine corps and he would constantly still be under like a nineteen minute three mile guy. Oh yeah and i got out of sergeants course like our enlisted p._m. Programs and was running faster than i had in a long time. I was pretty close to an eighteen minute guy again and he he saw me like running ahead of in the last five hundred yards this dude in his forties. I'm still probably twenty six years old twenty seven years old full allies allies by the sprints so fast like this dude rip cigarettes all the time he eats like shit and can still run and in my head still i was like man i hope that that's the way that i am because when you have a leader who really crashes on standards and keeps themselves to the highest standard as a junior troop troupe you and you respect the shit out of that so navy off basically i think the consumer navy officers and enlisted blame you know that's the one last note about the navy you'd think as a navy chief you would definitely want to stay in shape because that yellow that they wear what the blue shorts and the a yellow. Tom screams fat body. That's tough at least the olive drab p t shirts that we wear a little bit slimming. <hes> um yeah yeah little darker color yeah right but that's actually sometimes i have <hes> younger. Junior officers asked me. Hey some advice going to say one of the easiest things you can do is just be in the best shape of anybody because that's a great way to earn respect right out of the gate and not have to worry the men or women think you're a ship bag. I just figured it out by the way here's how they can solve. The problem of obesity military all p. t. uniforms short shorts and crop tops both genders wow. That's a terrible shame shame right. Here's a workshop that we'll circle back on that one. That's league. Let's put little pin in it and we'll circle back on gnat. But what do you say we all go back and do our respective tests fuck man. I'll never run like ten. Nothing like an hour to just walk three miles. I'll do with you though cons okay all right. We'll do if you're gonna do do the army p._t. Test all you gotta do it'll take me longer because we we actually do more than hold on though actually should i have to do the tests that i used to do or the new test. The army does those old. I think no one came to see kate bus stops and pull ups fuck now. Are you kidding again. Bingo wings not happening at all. How how long do you can flex charming kate. If i have a good song in my head i can go for a long time party in the u._s._a. Oh yeah i could. I could go probably to two rounds party in u._s._a. Bertie higgins oh i could.

"That is just something to keep in mind about this original person like where she may have been coming from yeah. Okay this is this is how I feel about it. I agree that something navy should did not have blocked these two. I mean she has she ten but she should not have right because while Sophie does have some good points like what she says. Is I think empirically true true. It has nothing kind of to do with this post and in some ways like through the way that she speaks is so highly condescending and is then she looked body shames Ariel. She calls her emaciated needed which is fucked up. She says that she looks like a child like has a body of a child who that is then fetish is she. She then says that like clearly she's also clearly. She's follows hurt closely because she knows that she doesn't. She does her work. That's all the time but I do have to say that like her. Little dance workouts are not getting her fit like they're not like like airliners has. She has skinny jeans. Yes she she. Does she like her. Whole family is very thin like you can see in her mom? She puts her mom her two sisters. They're all very thin she was do you can see how thin she was in her pictures that she shows her high school. All of that shit so well okay yeah. I like an also. I don't think it's right for this girl to tell our yell that she should be using her platform to talk about like people in k kids dying in cages like use your platform to talk about it right like what does this have to do with her. Just posting a picture of she's saying she's proud of her work for after her two children and also she never I really never says oh my body bounce back effort day. She says it's been took me a year to lose. Some weight. who were both rolling are is about that kind of shit but it doesn't mat like she's never like Oh bounced back right away? Check me out right. I mean I mean I. I completely agree with you. Here's here's the thing I agree with everything that like Sophie flack and that Amanda Siegfried said and I I do think that influ and the one thing I I also agree with what Ariel said and her response. The one thing. I don't agree agree with is that she says I'm not responsible for making people feel good because I happen to think that if you are an influence earned you have a million followers and people follow you as closely as they do her and you are your job is literally to have influence on people then you are responsible will not for making sure that every single person's happy but I do think you are responsible for how your content makes people feel if you make people feel shitty. You're jealous then that's really not I mean. I don't really support that however however I don't think that she by posting this photo was intending to hurt anyone I think she was just being proud of herself and I do think that like while I agree with them. This wasn't really like the time or the place because her post wasn't that bad and she wasn't getting paid for anything in our post so also manatee for and saying that she why don't we talk or both of them. Why don't we talk about how like how you're getting paid for this kind of stuff and like it was kind of didn't have anything to do with this? It's sort of like if you if you think that that people you really only want to see people who are using their platform to spread good messages and be like active about political issues or proper body image than like. Maybe you shouldn't be following this person because something thing navy I think above compared even with just like every other in like just relatives of other influences I think she's she is this isn't like shaded her but I think she's one of the people who's like the least she posts in my opinion sort of like the lease meaningful things like she even like even on like election day. She doesn't even post like vote which is so innocuous and like everybody posts about voting like not even like vote for this person like just literally I I noticed like when the election happened like I noticed that something navy was the only influence our who I follow who did not say like.

"Of mine, he's a recruiter in Philadelphia on, and he calls me up and tells me Remmy like I can't get none of these kids in the navy or the army, I say, why he said, because none of them could pass as that test. Not pass the basic as that. And I go to the school and see what they're learning and how they're being taught and the books they have and the resources are lacking. Like that's why they can't read at a senior high school level. And so the education system really needs to be ramped up, revamped across the country with an inner cities. And so because if you can't if you if you could just pack as that that's not enough ago sought to in order to go soft gotta have really high ad that sports. So, so, yeah, I mean, I, I think that that's death thing. And what I you know, one of the reasons why write a book book. There's one of the main reasons why wrote the book was, you know. A lot of a lot of white feels written books, you know, saying, and no drama. Is be foot do who I. And, and that's why for long time I want to write a book, like took us to find tons of writing a book. And I just knew that if I wrote a book, it wasn't gonna be strict wasn't gonna be navy seal book, and essence of what maybe she'll book is not not in any navy seal book is going to be a journey book, and it's going to be a book with a kid from the inner city can pick up read and be like, wow, like this do came from where I came from, and he became a seal become what you. And that kind of goes to the exposure thing, I wanted to expose kids to who come from my world to my new world, so that they can see and have hope that they can do it. But that makes sense. That's awesome. Yeah. And what you're saying, I mean, we've touched on it before it, definitely is an issue in the special operations community of looking like a monolithic, you know, at least just visually people think that think it is. But I mean Denison I will get Remi's picks from the navy before we started this and. I think it's a picture of your buds class in it is literally all white face. And then. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. And that's the way it is every class. I mean, well, well, let me rephrase. That, that's the way it is some classes, most classes, it's all white. Like literally, you probably get maybe one. If you lucky to black graduates a year. And we're talking five graduating classes that year, I think, in other, it might be, you know, you're, you're a New Yorker, so you know about this. There has been a history of more white firefighters, and I've, I've read articles about that, and it has to do with the legacy thing of this guy's father is a firefighter, and there was a firefighter, and they learn about it. You know earlier on we've had guys on the show before, like firm and Taras whose navy seal. His father is a third generation is great. Father is ABCL and, and you know that holding onto that Wagga C thing it's, it's hard to get into new communities and get new faces in the program. And as you said, like there's certain things are advantageous to not looking like everybody else yet. Let me ask you a question when you say that, do you mean like that is you put the burden on the community or you put the like I just want just want quite back TAC TAC. So you saying that the legacy thing is because it's the father who teaches the sun..

But while you're at it don't be afraid to go for two Harvey when you hear him in that conversation. I had with him earlier today. Talking about the pressure that every player feels on army navy, and you're talking about dude, three tours and ghanistan right here. I don't care about metals and this and that that's about honor and duty out. He doesn't care about that stuff. But when he. You said about the pressure. And then that last comment about man, comparing being an NFL tunnel or college football tunnel for army navy with going into, you know, the battlefield at night with night vision goggles, knee ended description, right? The senses of feeling the heat of the home v and then going over the mountains. And now now you see your target. That's the only adrenalin rush that beats being in the tunnel for army navy or an NFL tunnel before a game. Dude, is chills man. It's unbelievable. You you get to go this game. I I'm so envious. It's I've never been described man. Yeah. First of all. Yeah. It's it's great to hear him talk about those things and how much that time that he's able to spend at West Point how much it mattered to him. And what an impact it made on on him and the brotherhood that he's a part of. And yeah, we get caught up in the NFL and the pressure that these guys are on especially it'd city like Pittsburgh where they're expected to win every game. And you know. You know? That's that's probably as he said nothing like what he's used to. And and even this weekend. You know, navy has not had a good year. I mean to think that navy is three and nine is unheard of. And to come into play. Army army looking for their third straight win. I mean for these guys this is a big deal. I think before that navy at one fourteen in a row, and Jeff monk and was hired as you know. He's an assistant at navy. They brought him over and said, hey, whatever they're doing with coach Ken over there. Maybe bring that over here to West Point. We really appreciate it. And boy the first time the first game he had a chance it came so close to knocking off navy and now they've won a couple in a row and trying to make it three in a row. So it's it's the weekend that I look forward to every year. It's one of my most favorite games that I love to sit down always tell you. We do game day in the morning, and we take a train from Philadelphia up to time square where it's drops us off right in New York City, and I'm sprinting to get up into my room. And I don't want anybody. Near my room. I don't want him watch the game with anybody. I turn the close the curtains. I turn the lights off air conditioning down to share in the dark a love it. And I tune everything out, and I sit there, and I watch it. They'll every snap. And I love it. I just I look forward to it every single year. I don't care what the records are care that it doesn't impact conference championship or a playoff. I just I'm a throwback myself. I love watching how they play. And if you if you have time on Saturday encourage you to please just watch the game and watch how these guys approached their jobs as far as being a linebacker a corner or running back and watch how hard they play and watch how they're not disrespectful. They're not stand it over top of each other taunting each other..

"And after that, really what we know right now is three diesel-electric subs and the L so in a crisis. I mean, the incentives for the Indians to really strike at that via left. The exact it's it's incredibly obvious for the Indians to take down move, which means that the Pakistanis will have to devolve some kind of youth authority to the personnel stationed on the submarines of to be useful in a crisis. And that's and that's really worth things like personal reliability, which is kind of a nightmare in the Pakistani navy case specifically start to come into play. Yeah. And I think in the Pakistanis have manipulated this, you know, incentive to fail deadly and fail lethal to their advantage. I think even with the Nassir batteries land. You know, I think the the line from the Pakistanis and we have centralized control. Centralized control until we don't and once we plus she things out, you know, all bets are off. And I can imagine them either. You know, they have an incentive to make the same kind of argument for the for the Augusta's and the seabass leg, but that the the incentives are actually kind of a line in this case, right? They may want to maintain centralized control up until they flush him out. But wants to question out. They can't be confident commanded control with survive the crisis. And so they would have to basically divall use soon as that thing flushed out, and that creates major risks. Royal Navy dozen listen for the Pakistani national radio broadcaster or something PTV. Yup. What is what the Galatian dynamics between these countries with cruise versus ballistic. You know, I find it. Interesting.

"To hire. He's reading of hiring sites with over one thousand reviews. And undefeated season still in sight for the third ranked Irish as they battle against navy tonight at SD CU stadium. The midshipmen the first of five matchups here in this home stretch, Joel with you the network's studios rare is it in sports that a player gets to play for both teams in a rivalry matchup, you occasionally seed in the pros, but almost never in the collegiate ranks. However, Notre Dame safety alot. He Gilman will experience ten nights rivalry game from the Irish sidelines two years ago Gilman made twelve tackles for the midshipmen in a stunning win over number five Notre Dame, but he transferred to the Irish after that season. And here he is now trying to help Notre Dame reach the college football playoff by playing against his former team right now, he's standing by in San Diego with our Jack Nolan. We are here with Notre Dame starting free safety alot, he Gilman. I don't know what's going through your head right now. But it has to be surreal that you are preparing to. Face off against the guys you used to face off against in practice, but now accounts. Yeah, I mean, it's pretty exciting. It's it's pretty crazy to wrap my head around it and just excited to get out there and play against my teammates and experienced that how many questions have your teammates asked you this week about how to stop the navy attack of the Vesta bunch just small keys thoughts insights on different things. And it's been a cool experience being able to share my knowledge about the triple option and defending it. And so it's been good, obviously when you were scouting other teams you had to play against their offenses. But how many times it maybe to the number one defense play the number one offense in practice a lot a lot pretty much every day. We went out going to get a lot in fall camp. It's all triple option. So got a lot of reps. You also got to play it when you play the other service academies. So there's there's nobody on this team this probably played as much as you have what give me three keys to stopping the navy triple option attack. I first and foremost being physical set the tone early physically navy's a tough team. And they're also going to come out and beat be physical and put their foot down our throats tried to. So we got to be physical affront second thing. Doing your job. You got to do your job. Whatever job you have full back. Dies pitch. It won't work unless you do your job and thirteen just being strong with the discipline, and your keys, whatever keys you have. Yes. They executed keys. I know it's a long story. So the abbreviated version how did a Lowy Gilman end up leaving navy and coming to Notre Dame abbreviated version. Yes. So things. Changed in ways. When I was at navy decisions that were made through things I couldn't really control wasn't as passionate ended up deciding to transfer leaving. Mario brothers there. And Notre Dame end up becoming a place that was intriguing and I had some high interest in and ended up being the right place for me. You were part of the last navy team that beat Notre Dame a couple of years ago. So is that kind of surreal as well. Yeah. I think it's pretty cool. That'd be the only one who who. Who tackled Andy player and a navy player? So that'd be a pretty cool experience. And I'm excited in this rivalry that is certainly correct. Talk to me about how being navy prepared you for Notre Dame because everybody talks about how tough it is to survive as a student athlete at Notre Dame. Would you agree having been there? But there's no place tougher than surviving as a student athlete at navy. Yeah. Doesn't come close. Non-issue doesn't come close. The naval academy is a different story was a lot tougher. But I mean, the challenges for the naval academy, which is a different lifestyle different experienced. That was a lot tougher Kenya.

Your season of action at navy. Started twelve you're close to a lot of these guys. Have you ever been in this situation before we are going up against another team where you're close to so many of the guys you're playing? I have once in high school playing I went to a private school my freshman year playing team a public school team. But this one hits home a lot more for me because I experienced a lot of different trials and challenges with those guys they're really close to them. Some of my best friends are they're still in contact with them. So this one hits home and so the exciting game, and I'm excited you just play and have fun. Thank you. Appreciate it. All right.
