On episode 381 — the first in a 2-part series — of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Dr. Rumay Alexander, EdD, RN, FAAN; Dr. Laura Fennimore, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, CNE,FAAN; and Dr. Debra Toney, PhD, RN, FAAN, all members of the National Commission to Address Racism in Nursing. In the course of this episode, Keith and his three esteemed guests discuss a wide range of topics related to structural systemic racism, the purpose of the commission, definitions of important terms, how racism impacts both nurses and patients, potential solutions, and much more. On January 25, 2021, leading nursing organizations launched the National Commission to Address Racism in Nursing. The Commission examines the issue of racism within nursing nationwide focusing on the impact on nurses, patients, communities, and health care systems to motivate all nurses to confront individual and systemic racism. The Commission members and organizations represent a broad continuum of nursing practice, racially and ethnically diverse groups, and regions across the country. The Commission is led by the American Nurses Association (ANA), National Black Nurses Association (NBNA), National Coalition of Ethnic Minority Nurse Associations (NCEMNA), and National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN).Before joining forces to address racism in nursing, the organizations that make up the National Commission to Address Racism (the Commission) have for years raised their individual voices to condemn all forms of racism within our society and health care system.

“Using that view of looking at the whole person, we can provide some acupuncture or acupressure to help maybe reduce anxiety, to help them relax a little bit more, settle their thinking down a little bit, and get some improved sleep,” ONS member Susan Yaguda, MSN, RN, RN manager in integrative oncology at the Atrium Health Levine Cancer Institute in Charlotte, NC, told Stephanie Jardine, BSN, RN, oncology clinical specialist at ONS, during a discussion on using acupuncture and acupressure to manage symptoms and side effects of cancer and cancer treatment.

Highlights From Today's Episode “When people have a disruption in their health—and it could be your emotional well-being, physical, or both—in traditional Chinese medicine, it is reflected in that the flow of qi has been disrupted. Acupuncture and acupressure address this by trying to open up and even out that flow, by either inserting tiny little needles called acupuncture needles, or by exerting gentle pressure—called acupressure—on specific acupoints.” Timestamp (TS) 03:22 “What I really love about traditional Chinese medicine is it's very holistic. It's looking at the whole person, at systems working together, and it really meshes beautifully with what I think of as nursing practice, as nurses, that we step back and that we are looking at the whole person. And how maybe an imbalance in one area of one's life can definitely impact other areas as well.” TS 05:27 “We know that patients who receive neurotoxic chemotherapies can develop painful neuropathy that can really be impactful on their quality of life. We have found, and the literature also supports, that if patients can come in and get some sessions of acupuncture, it can be really impactful on their neuropathy.” TS 08:09 “Using that view of looking at the whole person, we can provide some acupuncture or acupressure to help maybe reduce anxiety, to help them relax a little bit more, settle their thinking down a little bit, and get some improved sleep, which as we all know is a very important part of health and well-being and definitely for our patients something that can better help them manage treatment moving forward.” TS 10:56 “Integrative medicine looks at using complementary therapies in a very collaborative way with what we would consider to be more conventional medical treatment, so that it's coordinated and very intentionally meshed together to best suit the patients' needs at whatever point along the trajectory of their care.” TS 12:58 “Some cancer centers do have an integrative medicine department, and oftentimes acupuncture is part of that.” TS 15:56 “Not only could our care partners use some acupressure themselves to help with fatigue, anxiety, and their own sleep difficulties, but it gives them something that they can be easily trained to do to share with their loved one. And sometimes, it's so important for them to feel like they can contribute positively to their loved one's well-being in some sort of way. I always encourage, if possible, for a care partner to be involved in the process as well.” TS 20:47 “Using battlefield acupuncture, or acupuncture and acupressure of any kind, is not a replacement for appropriate medical management of symptoms—whether it's pain, nausea, or anxiety, for example. Think about this as another tool in the toolbox to offer to our patients that has very few side effects. . . . It should never be considered a replacement for that type of care.” TS 32:45

The building industry's at breaking point - with soaring costs, supply shortages and a lack of builders. But with the Commerce Commission's final report on the sector due in December, it will not be until next year that the government responds. In the report the Commission has given its assessment: the sector is not as competitive as it should be. The watchdog has delivered a list of proposals, though stops short of any radical shake-up. RNZ deputy political editor Craig McCulloch has the details.

À l'issue des élections législatives au Sénégal, le camp présidentiel a perdu la majorité absolue à l'Assemblée nationale mais reste en tête d'une très courte avance, selon les résultats officiels provisoires de la Commission nationale de recensement des votes. Les détails dans cette édition avec notre correspondant Elimane Ndao, et l'analyse de Babacar Ndiaye, directeur de la recherche et des publications du think tank WATHI.
« Le gouvernement veut expulser urgemment le porte-parole de la Monusco », peut-on lire dans Politico, qui détaille : « Le gouvernement, par le truchement du ministère des Affaires étrangères, reproche au porte-parole de la mission onusienne d'avoir tenu des propos "indélicats et inopportuns" à la base des tensions qui ont causé 36 morts parmi lesquels 32 civils congolais et 4 casques bleus de la Monusco au-delà de 170 blessés dans le Nord et Sud-Kivu. Le gouvernement estime que la présence de ce fonctionnaire de l'ONU en RDC n'est pas de nature à favoriser un climat de confiance mutuelle et de sérénité indispensable entre les institutions congolaises et la Monusco ». Les propos de Mathias Gillman qui lui sont reprochés datent du 13 juillet dernier, lors d'un point presse il a affirmé « que les terroristes du M23 disposent d'armes plus sophistiquées que ce qu'ils avaient il y a quelques mois ». Réaction du gouvernement : « C'est un aveu d'impuissance pour la Monusco », une déclaration « qui démotive les militaires au front et qui démontre clairement l'état d'esprit des casques bleus ». Jeune Afrique parle d'« avenir de plus en plus incertain de la Monusco » Le journal explique que « le retour de la crispation autour de la présence de la Monusco marque un virage. En difficulté sous Joseph Kabila qui, à la fin de son mandat, n'a eu de cesse de réclamer son départ, la mission entretenait avec Félix Tshisekedi des relations jusque-là apaisées ». La situation, on l'a compris, a bien changé. « Sale temps pour les sherpas officiels des opérations onusiennes », estime le site Aujourd'hui au Faso. Alors un autre média burkinabé, Wakat Séra, pose la question suivante : « Pourquoi la Monusco n'accélère-t-elle pas son retrait qui serait loin d'une fuite délibérée, d'autant qu'il est déjà acté ? » L'article élargit surtout la problématique, affirmant que « ce n'est pas qu'en RDC que le temps s'assombrit pour l'ONU en Afrique ». L'Observateur Paalga évoque « les scandales » qui ont éclaboussé certaines de ces missions, leur coût ou encore « une véritable filière quasi mafieuse, politico-judiciaire, autour de ces fameuses missions ». Finalement, « à quoi servent vraiment ces missions de la paix ? », s'interroge le quotidien. En Guinée, arrestations de deux hauts dirigeants du FNDC La communauté internationale n'a pas tardé à réagir. Africa Guinée nous liste ces différentes réactions. La Cédéao demande la « libération des détenus » et « l'ouverture rapide d'une enquête » sur les abus. Dans le même sillage, le G5 a déploré « le recours excessif à la force et l'utilisation alléguée d'armes létales pour le maintien de l'ordre ». Et hier mercredi, un haut diplomate de l'ONU a appelé les autorités « à lever toute interdiction de manifester et à protéger la liberté de réunion ». Outre les condamnations morales, peut-être bientôt des condamnations juridiques ? Dans un autre article, Africa Guinée avance : « Les avocats du FNDC travaillent sur une série d'éléments considérés comme des preuves de la répression sanglante des manifestations. Ils entendent les déposer au bureau du Procureur de la CPI, dans un bref délai. (…) Le FNDC n'entend pas se limiter là, d'après nos informations. En plus de ce signalement, une plainte sera déposée au parquet de Paris contre certains hauts dignitaires de la junte ». Cette situation tendue en Guinée est « la rançon de la complaisance de la Cédéao », estime Ledjely, qui précise : « Ce choc frontal n'aura surpris personne, eu égard à la dégradation progressive que l'on a observée ces derniers mois dans les rapports entre la junte guinéenne et les principaux acteurs politiques et de la société civile. Et c'est en cela que la Cédéao, elle non plus, n'est pas exempte de reproches. En effet, elle a manqué d'anticipation ». « Alors qu'il a usé d'une approche martiale à l'égard de la junte au Mali, le duo que constituaient le président du Ghana et le président de la Commission, Jean-Claude Kassi Brou, s'est montré plutôt compréhensif à l'égard des autorités guinéennes. » Reprochant à la Cédéao une forme d'attentisme, l'article conclut : « C'est à croire qu'elle ne tire pas tous les enseignements de ses turpitudes passées ». Au Sénégal, l'attente des résultats des législatives Hier soir, rapporte Seneweb, « l'inter-coalition Yewwi-Wallu dit avoir décelé des irrégularités dans des départements situés dans le nord du pays » et demande un report de la publication de ces résultats. Le sujet est aussi à la une du quotidien Walf. L'annonce des résultats est pour le moment fixée à cet après-midi.

Big D and Gene called up the rootinest, tootinest feller they know to help review 1992's "Unforgiven," and the King Bee delivered with sage cowboy wisdom about big-booty threesomes, the pony economy and frontier law. This Academy Award-winning masterpiece led to a stampede of topics including: What constitutes a movie room? Is there honor among killers? Can the right woman save you?

This episode of All Things Judicial features an interview with former Supreme Court of North Carolina Chief Justice James G. Exum, Jr. Exum earned his law degree from New York University School of Law, served as a superior court judge from 1967–1974, served as an associate justice of the Supreme Court of North Carolina from 1975–1986, and served as the chief justice of the Supreme Court of North Carolina from 1986–1995.In this 2006 interview conducted by former superior court judge and former director of the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) Tom Ross, Exum reflects on his early life in Eastern North Carolina, career in the state judicial system, and the importance of the judiciary in maintaining a functioning democracy. "The legal profession and our judicial system are the only place where serious disputes can be resolved according to rationality and mutual principles of law," said Exum on the podcast. "As lawyers, we are all part of the same profession and we have a duty to treat each other as professionals … and we can disagree without being disagreeable."This interview is part of the Chief Justice's Commission on Professionalism's historical video series. A video of this interview can be viewed on the Judicial Branch YouTube Channel.

There are many made-up holidays that somehow have found their way into being mentioned on this particular channel of programming as part the introduction. For some reason, today is Clean Your Floors Day, though it’s unclear who makes the money off of those greetings cards. But how clean are your floors? Are you a rebel without a broom, or are you a vacuum warrior? It’s a very good thing that none of the rest of this installment of Charlottesville Community Engagement has anything to do with this particular topic. But I will have you know, I mopped mine yesterday in anticipation of this very important day. On today’s show:So far there are no debates scheduled in the contested Fifth Congressional District race but Democrat Josh Throneburg wants to change thatArea home sales volumes have decreased, though the cost to buy a place to live continues to increaseGreene County hires a water and sewer director to prepare to expand supplySeveral area organizations receive funding from Virginia Humanities, including a project to tell stories of PVCC students who have been or are in prisonAlbemarle County continues to review its Comprehensive Plan and the seven-member Planning Commission got their chance to review growth management options late last month First shout-out is for LEAP’s new Thermalize Virginia program In today’s first Patreon-fueled shout-out: Have you been thinking of converting your fossil-fuel appliances and furnaces into something that will help the community reduce its greenhouse gas emissions? Your local energy nonprofit, LEAP, has launched a new program to guide you through the steps toward electrifying your home. Thermalize Virginia will help you understand electrification and connect you with vetted contractors to get the work done and help you find any rebates or discounts. Visit thermalizeva.org to learn more and to sign up! Challenger Throneburg challenges Good to an in-person debateThe Democratic candidate in the Fifth District Congressional race has asked his opponent to agree to meet in person for a debate or other kind of candidate forum before the November 8 election. Josh Throneburg of Charlottesville became the candidate earlier this year before the primary when he was the only one to qualify for the ballot. “There’s one question I get asked more than any other and that is, when will the two of you debate?” Throneburg asked in a campaign video sent out this morning. Throneburg addressed his comments directly to Good and said there were at least three organizations that would hold a campaign event, and that he’s accepted all of them.“But you have either rejected or ignored those invitations and so I want to make things crystal clear. I, Josh Throneburg, challenge you, Representative Bob Good to an in-person debate sometime between now and November 8.”Good is seeking his second term in the U.S. House of Representatives having defeated Cameron Webb in the 2020 election. Candidate Good did participate in a September 9, 2020 virtual campaign forum put on by the Senior Statesmen of Virginia. You can take a listen to that whole event at the Charlottesville Podcasting Network. A request for comment or a response is out to the Bob Good for Congress campaign. CAAR: Charlottesville real estate market continues to cool as prices continue to increaseThe number of sales in the Charlottesville housing market continues to drop as the median sales price continues to climb. That’s according to the latest report from the Charlottesville Area Association of Realtors. (view the report) “There were 1,380 homes sold in the CAAR area in the second quarter,” reads one of the bullet points in the CAAR Home Sales Report for the second quarter. “This is an eleven percent drop from the second quarter a year ago, which is 165 fewer sales.” CAAR’s jurisdictional area is the same as the Thomas Jefferson Planning District with the city of Charlottesville as well as the counties of Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, and Nelson. The median sales price increased to $417,850, an eleven percent increase over the second quarter of 2021. Additionally, supply has increased with 741 active listings in the area, a 28 percent increase over the same period in 2021. To put the increase in perspective, consider that the median sales price for the second quarter of 2018 was $301,000. The report also covers recent economic trends such as steady job growth and low unemployment. “Several job sectors have fully recovered and have actually expanded since the start of the pandemic, including the Professional and Technical Services sector, and the Federal Government sector. The homeownership rate within these two job sectors tends to be relatively high, so growth in these sectors provides fuel for the housing market in Virginia.”However, the leisure and hospitality sector continues to show signs of recovery. Mortgage rates are higher than last year, but have shown a slight decline from the end of June when the average rate on a 30-year fixed was 5.7 percent. However, the report acknowledges the cooling effect of rates that have increased two percentage points so far this year. Sales volumes were down in all localities except Greene County where there was a 33 percent increase in sales. There were 122 homes sold in that jurisdiction between April and June of this year compared to 92 in the same period the year before. The median sales price increased in all of the jurisdictions, but Nelson County saw the biggest jump in values from $285,000 in second quarter of 2021 to $425,000 in the second quarter of 2022.

Say something in the comments. New water and sewer director in GreeneGreene County is preparing for anticipated population growth by expanding its urban water supply. Now the locality has hired its first ever water and sewer director. “Mr. Greg Lunsford… will oversee the development of a team to operate Greene County Water and Sewer Department as Greene transitions out of the Rapidan Service Authority,” reads an announcement posted to the county’s Facebook page. Greene County recently left the RSA in order to build a reservoir that’s already received permission from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The idea is to impound White Run to create storage.

Virginia Humanities awards grants to area nonprofitsThe state agency that serves as the official humanities council for Virginia has made its latest round of grants to nonprofit organizations that seek to tell new stories about the people who have lived in the Commonwealth. “We want Virginians to connect with their history and culture and, in doing that, we hope we’ll all get to know each other a little better,” reads the About section of the website for Virginia Humanities. In all, Virginia Humanities awarded $153,200 to eighteen organizations including several in this general area. The Catticus Corporation of Berkeley, California will get $10,000 for a project to build a website intended to tell the story of Barbara Johns and the 1951 student walk out in Prince Edward County to a larger audience across Virginia and the nation. James Madison University will get $5,400 toward a project called A Miserable Revenge: Recovering 19th-Century Black Literature from the Shenandoah Valley. This will transcribe a handwritten novel by George Newman around 1880. Newman was an African American educator from the Winchester area.

Second shout-out goes to Camp AlbemarleToday’s second subscriber-supported public service announcement goes out to Camp Albemarle, which has for sixty years been a “wholesome rural, rustic and restful site for youth activities, church groups, civic events and occasional private programs.”Located on 14 acres on the banks of the Moorman’s River near Free Union, Camp Albemarle continues as a legacy of being a Civilian Conservation Corps project that sought to promote the importance of rural activities. Camp Albemarle seeks support for a plan to winterize the Hamner Lodge, a structure built in 1941 by the CCC and used by every 4th and 5th grade student in Charlottesville and Albemarle for the study of ecology for over 20 years. If this campaign is successful, Camp Albemarle could operate year-round. Consider your support by visiting campalbemarleva.org/donate. Albemarle Planning Commission reviews seven options for growth management Is this the summer of 2022, or is it the Summer of AC44? AC44 is the name Albemarle County has given for the review of its Comprehensive Plan. That’s a document Virginia requires all localities to adopt and review every five years. Albemarle last updated its plan in 2015 and work got underway earlier this year. “We’re currently in phase one, plan for growth, where we are reviewing and evaluating the current growth management policy, using lenses of equity, climate action, and capacity projects,” said Tori Kannellopollous, a senior planner with Albemarle County.At the end of this phase, staff and hired consultants will have developed a draft vision for “growth and resilience” on which new policy objectives will be written. The work so far has led to the development of seven growth management policies for the public to review. “We are planning having in-person and virtual roundtables and online opportunities in step three,” Kannellopollous saidThe Commission will then review the work in September followed by a review by the Board of Supervisors. Discussions about what changes might come in the rural area will come during phase two of the Comprehensive Plan Review. Several Commissioners wanted to know if survey responses have done enough to capture a diversity of opinion. “I did a deep dive on the last one that came out and when I look at the demographics, the demographics really trend white, upper class, middle-upper class, and extremely well-educated,” said Commission Julian Bivins. “What I’m nervous about is that those responses become the drivers for lots of decisions.” Charles Rapp, the deputy director of the Community Development Department, said he expected participation to increase when the plan review gets into specifics.“People are excited to get into the specific topics [and] into the details of this plan,” Rapp said. “At this point we’re still at such a high level trying to figure out which of those avenues we’re going to go down and which ideas we want to explore and what are those topics that we want to dive into.” The Commission also got an update on the buildout analysis of the county’s existing capacity for new homes and businesses. The firm Kimley Horn has been hired to conduct that work. Kannellopollous had several preliminary observations.“In mixed-use developments, the residential component tends to fill out first and the non-residential component may not build out until years later,” Kannellopollous said. “When factoring in site readiness and site-selection criteria, there appears to be sufficient capacity for commercial and retail uses but much less currently available for office and industrial uses.” Another finding is that new developments are not being approved at the maximum possible, and that by-right developments also do not use all of the potential building space recommended in the existing Comprehensive Plan.Seven growth management optionsThe firm EPR has been hired to help develop the growth management options. “These were developed by the consultants and the staff after the first round of public input,” said Vlad Gavrilovic with EPR. “They’re not intended as picking one as the winner or the loser. They’re intended to initiate discussion.” Let’s go through them. Here’s option one:“Applying more density and more in-fill development within the existing development areas and retaining and enhancing green infrastructure,” Gavrilovic said. “Next option was looking in the development areas to adjust the densities and reduce the maximum densities to more closely align with what people have actually been building as.” The third option would be to develop criteria for which the growth area might be adjusted. “Looking at new criteria to identify when, where, and how growth areas should be expanded,” Gavrilovic said. “The next option was opportunities for non-residential development around the interchanges on I-64 to support job growth and economic development.” Option five would explore the possibility of rural villages. “Rural villages where you would promote small scale commercial and service uses to nearby rural area residents,” Gavrilovic said. “Number six was looking at current service provisions and seeing if adjustments are needed to ensure equitable distribution of services, particularly health and safety services.” The final option is to “explore opportunities to promote forest retention and regenerative land uses in the Rural area that support climate action goals.” So those are the seven scenarios. A second round of community engagement went out with these results. “We heard that the three options that best support climate action were regenerative uses in the rural area, rural villages, and distribution of service provision,” Kannellopollous said. “The three options that best support equity were service provision, rural villages, and providing more density and infill in the development areas with green infrastructure.” For the “accommodating growth” lens, the top three options were rural villages, non-residential development at Interstate interchanges, and service provision. Commissioner feedbackCommissioner Karen Firehock said she saw the provision of infrastructure to support development areas as an equity issue.“People should be able to walk to a park or a trail or a healthy environment near to where they live and not have to get in the car and drive a really long way to find something green,” Firehock said. Firehock said the county is expanding some services into the rural area, such as the Southern Convenience Center in Keene. She said that will make it easier for people to meet other environmental goals. Commissioner Lonnie Murray lives in the rural area, and hopes the growth management strategy does not undo work to date. “I think it’s important to have a concept of ‘do no harm’ in the rural area,” Murray said.As an example, he said he wants the county to stop paving gravel roads in the rural area. Bivins urged the Commission to look ahead to the next redistricting after the 2030 Census, when he said the urban areas will continue to have more of the county’s expected population. “If we do not increase the development area, Samuel Miller [District] will end up in the near future as the largest land mass district in Albemarle County.” Bivins said “From an equity standpoint, one has to say ‘is that where we want to go as a county?’” The Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service currently projects Albemarle’s population as increasing to 124,016 by 2030, up from 112,395 in the U.S. Census of 2020. Commissioner Fred Missel said he wanted to know more information about how capital infrastructure works together to support development.“How does the capital plan for infrastructure, how does that inform development and how are they linked together?” Missel asked. “Not to throw the [Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority] into the mix it’s just one that comes to mind. What is their capital plan and how does that support strategic density? How does it support sustainability?” Missel’s day job is as director of design and development at the University of Virginia Foundation. The Foundation is pursuing a rezoning at its North Fork Discovery Park for a potential mixed-use residential complex.

He said he wanted better metrics. “And a lot of times we focus on the big picture but we lose that option to say ‘we know we’re going in the right direction if we’re achieving A, B, C, and D,” Carrazana said. “So I would encourage everyone to think about that as well.” Planning Commissioner Corey Clayborne said density in the right place can help the county achieve certain goals, but he also acknowledged a tension with those who have pushed back. “That’s something we kind of have to wrestle to the ground and I’m not sure if that would be part of the final deliverable here as much as, is there an education sense in this process with the community as we step through this?” Clayborne asked. “Does that mean there are graphics or visuals? I’m not sure what that answer is yet but addressing it… if we can get our arms around and embrace strategic density, I think if you start talking about design importance, that could be a major key to affordable housing.” Commissioner Dan Bailey said one piece of data is experience that comes from what’s been approved and what’s actually been built. “I live in Belvedere and it has a concept that’s been there for nearly ten years of having centers in the community, but it’s been vacant for ten years,” Bailey said. “And we’ve done a lot of approving these novel neighborhood model density and other things where they should have this retail or office building. I would really love to know how many of them have actually been developed.” The next step will be a series of public engagement on the themes as well as the growth management options. Stay tuned.

The Commerce Commission says competition for the supply of key building products is not working well as it could. The watchdog has just released its draft report into competition in the residential building supplies market. It says it is too slow, costly and uncertain to get new products accepted and that must be improved. The Commission also raised concerns about rebates paid by established suppliers to merchants. It recommended introducing more compliance pathways and making it easier for new supplies to be introduced. RNZ business reporter Nicholas Pointon spoke to Corin Dann.

In this episode, Leigh Brown asks if you believe we are in a new market shift in real estate. You will be able to get some great insights and suggestions from Leigh as she is one of the most well-known speakers and thought leaders in the real estate industry. She has been selling real estate for several years and is the founder of One Community Real Estate® in Concord, NC. She has written three books, hosts two podcasts, and speaks all over the country. Leigh and Monica discuss the information REALTORS® can get from their MLS, their Chamber of Commerce, as well as the news, in order to inform their clients of the most up to date information. They also discuss the importance of networking, and using data to help make decisions. Leigh insists that REALTORS® need to keep current on changing conditions and educate their buyers and sellers with the most relevant information in order to navigate this market shift. [2:35] Monica welcomes Leigh Thomas Brown to The Center for Real Estate Development Podcast to talk about The Shift. Leigh compares the shift in real estate now with the shift in '07. [5:23] You have to figure out the new conditions in a shift. In March of 2020, a house that earlier would have sold in minutes was sold in seven days. Now it takes longer. The busiest REALTORS® see the changes in the marketplace first. Once you see them, you need to educate sellers and buyers or you will get behind the REALTORS® who will figure out the shift and leapfrog you. [7:16] In the big recession in 2007, REALTORS® didn't see the shift, didn't get educated quickly enough, and didn't adapt their expectations quickly enough. If you're not dialed in, you can hurt people. [8:11] Monica watches her local group's Facebook pages to stay current with local market conditions. It's also great to see local REALTORS® supporting newer REALTORS®with their experience. [10:43] Going to in-person events allows you to build relationships that will last through your career. Take classes to network with long-time mega-listing agents. There is no better resource for an early-career REALTOR® than a long-time agent who has been through a shift. They know how to conduct themselves when the phones stop ringing and everything seems to be coming apart. [12:46] Leigh tells how she acted in 2007 when her phone stopped ringing. Going to events would have helped her. An experienced agent would have reassured her that houses will still be bought and sold. [13:56] Leigh defines a shift as market conditions that cause people to behave differently in real estate. She notes several market conditions that have happened together. An agent can see a shift first by keeping track of Days on Market and price reductions on MLS. [17:04] Leigh lists some of the conditions defining the current shift, showing how complex the real estate market is. Being a real estate professional doesn't mean being a financial/business expert but you need to be aware of what's happening. It helps you talk to your clients who are also reading the news. Real estate is a financial tool as well as a living and home tool. [17:50] Monica refers to Episode 70, featuring Josh Cadillac, about the different areas that affect the real estate market and how to talk to clients about them. [19:43] Leigh tells how an agent in her office used statistics from MLS. MLS is much more than bedrooms, bathrooms, and prices. Put the best information possible into the MLS so every agent has the information for their clients to create a match. Check out the History button on every comp property. Print it out and attach it to the comp. Highlight all the times it has changed price. [23:55] Let people know markets are fluid in a shift. Also, every house is a combination of condition and price. Look at Feedback on the listing to see more about the house. [26:02] Call your MLS and ask the data person to do training at your brokerage. Learn how to use the Statistical Analysis Module (SAM) to look at the month-over-month of ZIP Codes or neighborhoods to come up with an accurate market value price. You will be the most educated REALTOR® at the table. Most listings occur at the end of the month. Things change every day. [30:01] The future is coming at us quickly. Dig into the data now. Take classes at your MLS or have them come to your brokerage. Learn it now. Only REALTORS® can dig in and analyze the last six weeks of data. The three-month data doesn't matter. Monica shares an anecdote about how they first saw this shift. Using the data is a skill all agents need to have right now. Train your client with the data. [32:30] Look at the NAR profile of home buyers and sellers. Clients want greater transparency. They wish we told the story better. When you're discovering all the data points, explain what they mean to your client. You will have a client that understands where you're coming from. [33:32] Train your clients to understand the data. They will receive it, own it, and make informed decisions about what to do. This is what Monica calls proactive real estate work If you will set up the systems and do the work proactively, then you won't have a problem later. Leigh reminds us that everything we do has to center on the best outcome for the client and it's up to the client to determine the best outcome. [34:39] One of the top complaints to any state Real Estate Commission is “My REALTOR® made me…” When clients understand the decision they are making, they will not feel pressured to make a bad decision. Give them as much information as possible in writing so they can decide. This also protects you from going against Commission guidelines. The client wants to trust you to act in their interest. [37:18] Leigh shares some best practices. Human behavior, when something doesn't feel right, is to pull back and stop. Agents don't have that luxury. Right now in our marketplace, there are people who need to sell. If we do not effectively tell them how to get out of the market, then we are hurting them. Learn the language of short sales and foreclosures. Leigh explains why. [39:55] Prospecting is not about you. Leigh's father taught her that if you take care of people the right way, money will find you. That's what REALTORS® must remember, going into a market change. Stop thinking about money; think about somebody else's best interest and the money will find you. Pick up the phone and call your contacts to say, “Hi! If you need something, I've got you.” You don't need a script. [44:01] If this time has afforded you a pause and you need to take a month if you have money in the bank and you're OK, then take a break. REALTORS® have worked seven days a week since COVID-19 started. You have to be a businessperson when it comes to your time. That includes putting up guardrails. If you're not rested, you're not capable. Find your balance between work and rest. [47:45] Real estate is not going to stop being wildly competitive. Every pre-licensing school is full. If you want to maintain or grow, you have to make specific business choices. [48:30] Leigh explains how to talk to buyers in a shift. Buyers have a built-in need to win. They've been getting beat up. You have to explain to the buyer that sellers and even banks are not accepting 20%-off offers. They have to get their equity. Banks also sell in bulk deals that exclude individual buyers. Don't wait for a repo.[51:54] Inflation is not over; the monthly payment is lower now than it will be later! Tell buyers to focus on the monthly. The buyer needs to get a pre-approval letter updated for every property they look at. Talk to your buyers about PITI-plus. The “plus” is a buffer for inflation for fuel and food. Talk to your buyers about how they can stay in that house. Your job is to help people think logically about an emotional transaction. [53:41] You should know how long people stay in their houses, on average, in your ZIP Code. Ask your local Chamber of Commerce. Be the person who has the data for your clients. With the right data, people can buy houses. [54:36] If your client insists on making offers at 30% off, refer them to a REALTOR® who is willing to do that; which is why you show up at networking events, to build a stable of amazing REALTORS® who have different business models and mindsets so that, at the end of the day, the client is best served by the REALTOR® who fits what they're looking for. [55:04] Leigh's final word is, Do the work; pay attention to the information, take the classes, train your clients, train your sellers, and keep moving. Without REALTORS®, home ownership dies; the American Dream dies; REALTORS® are the ones doing the work in the field, every day, giving some neighbor the hope that they can buy their first house. [55:48] Monica thanks Leigh Brown for joining the Center for REALTOR® Development podcast! [55:56] Leigh shares three takeaways from this episode: Get education in person, to network. Build your knowledge of statistics and how to use MLS data. Call and care about your clients![56:23] The Center for REALTOR® Development has migrated all of its educational tools to one website: Learning.REALTOR.

Tweetables: “We have been through some changes in all of these years and so, when they say The Shift, I'm like, ‘Well, all right, let's see where this new road's going. You know, not a big deal, maybe I'm even glad!' But a lot of our listeners, as crazy as their lives have been, they're not necessarily excited about this!” — Monica “That was what I felt like on March 13th of 2020. Of course, the COVID-19 lockdown started on Friday the freaking 13th. The phones stopped ringing for a minute and then they started ringing and it was, ‘What do we do?!'” — Leigh “I got you, baby! I know what to do when the market goes stupid and sideways because I've been through this and frankly I would rather not think about how many years it's been since the shift last time, in '07!” — Leigh “The managing of expectations is the hardest thing for REALTORS® to adapt to because we see it first. The busiest REALTORS® see it first.” — Leigh “It's one of the under-sung beauties of REALTOR® world is that there is an actual desire to work together; not collusion,… but from a knowledge, information, expertise, and competence standpoint.” — Leigh “If you're an early-career REALTOR®, there's no better resource than somebody who has been through this. … They know how to conduct themselves. They know how to maintain a sense of calm and confidence when everything … looks like it's just coming apart at the seams.” — Leigh “There's a new problem. I'm going to define it and I'm going to help my clients get where they want to go. 100%!” — Monica “[A shift is] anything in the external market that causes people to behave differently in real estate.” — Leigh “When you call your MLS, that data person will come to your brokerage and do a training session and show you inside scoops and they love it.” — Leigh “Because markets are fluid, all you have is your data. So if you take in that month-over-month view of the ZIP Code, you're going to be the most educated REALTOR®at the table.” — Leigh “When everything goes smoothly, it's not because it just went smoothly, it's because you prepared well and everybody joined in the journey together.” — Monica “Everything we do has to center on the best outcome for the client.” — Leigh “Be curious. Ask better questions. What's their need?” — Monica “Care about your people. Genuinely care about your clients, your friends, and the business will come.” — Leigh “Until interest rates are higher than the rate of inflation, we're not at the end of the pain for buyers. You've got to tell your buyers, right now is still a good time to buy! It's not going to get easier! It's cheaper, monthly-payment-wise than it will be later! … Focus on the monthly.” — Leigh “Go back to that [average stay in houses] data and MLS may not have it but your Chamber of Commerce will. … So you know that number, you know the interest rate, you've got your lender on speed-dial, and you're focused on PITI-plus, people can buy houses.” — Leigh Guest Links: leighbrown.com | email@example.com | 704.507.5500 Facebook: leighbrownspeaker https://www.facebook.com/LeighBrownSpeaker/ YouTube: leighbrownspeaker https://www.youtube.com/leighbrownspeaker Instagram: leighthomasbrown https://www.instagram.com/leighthomasbrown/ LinkedIn: leighthomasbrown https://www.linkedin.com/in/leighthomasbrown/ On the Clubhouse app: @leighbrown Twitter: https://twitter.com/LeighBrown Podcast: Crazy Sh*t In Real Estate https://www.crazyshitinrealestate.com https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/crazy-sh-t-in-real-estate/id1153262163?mt=2 Great Recession Days on Market MLS ZIP Code Episode 70 with Josh Cadillac Josh Cadillac's website Chamber of Commerce Additional Links: Micro courses found at Learning.REALTOR Crdpodcast.com Learning.REALTOR for NAR Online Education Training4RE.com — List of Classroom Courses from NAR and its affiliates firstname.lastname@example.org Host Information: Monica Neubauer Speaker/Podcaster/REALTOR® Monica@MonicaNeubauer.com MonicaNeubauer.com FranklinTNBlog.com Monica's Facebook Page Facebook.com/Monica.Neubauer Instagram Instagram.com/MonicaNeubauerSpeaks Additional Bio: Leigh Thomas Brown Certified Professional Speaker™ (CSP®) international keynote speaker who happens to be hilarious in an almost-inappropriate-but-still-family-friendly way.

In Plant Based Promises, Giles Yeo a foodie and academic at Cambridge University, asks how sustainable are commercial plant based products? This is a fast growing sector with a potential value of $162 billion by 2030. Giles travels to the Netherlands Food Valley to look at companies developing plant based alternatives and to find out what role they have to play in changing diets. And Giles designs, his own plant based Yeo Deli range online, but discovers that new markets are already causing shortages of alternative proteins so what will the future look like? In 2019 the Eat Lancet Commission set up specific targets for a healthy diet and sustainable food production. The aim was to keep global warming to within 1.5 degrees and to be able to feed the world's 10 billion people by 2050. The Commission's recommendations are best visualised as a plate of food, half fruits vegetables and nuts and the other half whole grains, beans, legumes and pulses, plant oils and modest amounts of meat and dairy. Is there room on the plate for Giles Yeo Deli Baloney range.

July 29, 2022 — This week, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued two decisions that water interests in the Eel and Russian River watersheds have been waiting on for months. On Wednesday, the Commission approved a drastic reduction in the flow of water through the Potter Valley hydropower project into the East Branch of the Russian River. As of 2:00 yesterday afternoon, the water coming out of Lake Pillsbury started to be reduced from 75 cubic feet per second to five cfs. The Potter Valley Irrigation District will continue to receive up to 50 cfs on demand. PG&E still owns the project, though it recently submitted a 30-month schedule for decommissioning, which FERC approved. PG&E argued that it needed to reduce the flow in order to preserve the infrastructure at Lake Pillsbury, as well as cold water pools at the bottom of the reservoir for fish habitat. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), declared that if the water levels in the lake went down below 30,000 acre feet, the water would get too hot for juvenile salmonids. Though there is no fish ladder at Scott Dam, which impounds Lake Pillsbury, there is a needle valve at the bottom of the dam. The valve releases water into the 12-mile section of the Eel River between Lake Pillsbury and the van Arsdale Reservoir, near the diversion tunnel that directs the water into the Russian River. Charlie Schneider is the coordinator with the Salmon and Steelhead Coalition, a partnership among Trout Unlimited, California Trout, and the Nature Conservancy. He said early models indicated that, in order to preserve the cold water pools, the variance should have been implemented by July 15. “We're glad the variance was finally approved, but I think we need to better understand and look at those models to really see what's going to happen later this summer,” he said; “to see if it is in fact too late.” He added that conservationists are interested in preserving the 30,000 acre-feet of storage in Lake Pillsbury because in “big, deep reservoirs, the water stratifies, and the water in bottom part of the dam is cooler than the water at the top…the more water you're able to retain in there, the more cold water there is in the bottom of the lake. And that's the water that gets released from the low-level outlet. So it's really about preserving water temperature in that 12-mile reach between Scott and Cape Horn dams, making sure that water's a cool enough temperature to be habitable for salmonids.” Elizabeth Salomone, General Manager of the Mendocino County Russian River Flood Control and Water Conservation Improvement District, expects drastic changes for human water users on the other side of the diversion tunnel. “It's unusual for curtailments to cut into what we call the pre-1914 grouping,” she noted. “We do expect the curtailments to cut back into that pre-1914 category. But we won't know for sure until the State Water Board issues their findings and curtailment notices.” Salomone expects the state will allow Upper Russian River water users enough water to meet human health and safety needs, which is 55 gallons per person per day. Some urban water suppliers have other sources, including groundwater or recycled water. And some farmers as well as urban centers have contracts to divert stored water from Lake Mendocino. “So not everyone will go completely without water,” she concluded. The Commission also delivered an ambiguous opinion refuting the claims of environmental groups that the Commission has the authority to amend the Potter Valley Project's new annual license to include more protection measures for wildlife. The license for the Project expired on April 14. Within days, a group of conservationists and fishermen filed a 60-day notice of intent to sue PG&E under the Endangered Species Act. At the time, Redgie Collins, the Legal and Policy Director for California Trout, one of the coalition threatening the lawsuit, said that with the expiration of the license, PG&E “can no longer harm, harass, directly kill or injure salmon or steelhead at their project site.” The group wanted a new round of improved mitigation measures, arguing that the Commission had discretion over whether or not it granted the annual license. The Commission rejected that argument, saying that it was required to issue an annual license after the old one expired. And, while it also denied the coalition's call for an Endangered Species Act consultation, it did consult with NMFS to require PG&E to monitor water in parts of the Eel River and Lake Pillsbury. The utility must pay for two state programs to monitor salmon on the mainstem and middle fork of the Eel River for a period of time. It's also required to continue collecting data on water quality in Lake Pillsbury and provide that data to NMFS, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, U.S. Fish and Wildlife, and the Round Valley Indian Tribes. These are the four entities that PG&E consulted before making its request for the reduction. The Commission also disagreed with a slew of comments by Russian River water users complaining that PG&E was required to consult a drought working group composed of a wide array of stakeholders before requesting such a drastic change in the flows. The Commission wrote that “Establishment of and consultation with the Drought Working Group is not a license requirement; however the Commission encourages licensees to consult with stakeholders and to consider their interests when developing plans for Commission approval.” However, the Commission is now requiring PG&E to consult with the drought working group as it implements the reduction. Theoretically, the flows could be increased to 25 cfs. But the final decision will be left up to the four entities that supported the reduction to 5 cfs. Commissioner James Danly concurred with the Commission's decisions, but asked if it was fair to require ratepayers to finance the studies. Schneider thinks the solution is simple.“You know, he's sort of complaining about new operational measures while PG&E is no longer seeking to operate the project,” he reflected. “But the way to solve that is to get your facilities out of the river. Right? To get your dams out of the river, and then there won't be operational measures for you to need to comply with. He's sort of arguing like, oh, you guys should just let PG&E kill fish while they're decommissioning this project. You shouldn't worry about it. But we actually care about fish every year. Over the next couple of years while they're decommissioning this project, we want to make sure these fish are in good shape.” Danly wrote that he thinks “the Commission should ask the following: is it “reasonable” to require Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) — that is, California ratepayers — to pay to comply with new operational measures that are not required by law for a project that PG&E no longer seeks to operate? One must also bear in mind that compliance typically does not immediately follow an order's issuance. Orders requiring compliance frequently entail compliance plans which can take years to develop, review, and approve.” But Schneider called out the commissioner by name. “You're the people that can tell them to do it faster, FERC. Danly,” he exclaimed. “They take years. It's like, yeah, because you let them take years!” Cooperation in the allocation of water rights, often referred to as the California water wars, is rare. But on July 1, the state approved a first-of-its kind voluntary program in the upper Russian River, where senior water rights holders agreed to share their water with juniors. That program is contingent on project water that won't be available under the reduced flows, but Salomone remains optimistic. “About half of the water that's represented in water rights in the Upper Russian River signed up for the program,” she reported. “That's significant. That is a fantastic result for a pilot project. So what will happen now is that the program will essentially go on pause. It won't be canceled, it will just be on pause. It continues to be a participation tool. All of the participants will receive information on their water allocation, for which most of them, it will now go to zero. But as soon as conditions change, let's say we get a nice big rainstorm in October, or maybe even September, then the participants will be notified and their water allocation will go up as appropriate. So I am really proud of our Upper Russian River folks. This was a grassroots stakeholder-built program that took about two years to put together. And we are sticking with it, even if we have to hit the pause button. We're going to use it as a permanent tool in our toolbox, I hope.”
