In this episode of the Dr. B Show Podcast, Dr. B is joined by finance executive, author, speaker, consultant, and podcast host, Carolina Veira. Carolina talks about the work that she does for multiple organizations including Hispanic Star, a network that champions the Hispanic community. Carolina talks about the importance of volunteerism, education, and why the Hispanic community needs to continue work for representation today. Hispanics have the right to be heard, but like everybody else, that opportunity needs to be earned, and will not be given. HIGHLIGHTSA professional life steeped in service Hispanics need to be participate and be seen more Volunteerism creates active communities Education opens up a lot of opportunities All about the ¡Hablemos! Podcast  QUOTESCarolina: "When we unite and we see what we can be, reflected on other people who have achieved the success that we want for ourselves, then we get stronger as a community." Carolina: "We need to be seen, we need to be heard and to be taken into account and to be brought to the table. If they don't let us sit at the table, then we bring our own chairs, our duffel bags, whatever it is. Just sit there and be part of the conversation and create allyships." Carolina: "To me, education is fundamental for the growth of anyone, of any human being. It's not only what you learn from the books, but the exposure that you get to what other people are thinking, to ideas, to connections. It's another way of networking, right? It's connecting to those future leaders." Carolina: "We still need to show who we are not only to those who don't know much about our culture and who we are, but also to ourselves, to our own Hispanic brothers and sisters. Because there's a lack of ownership of our voices. There's a lack of representation in the sense that we don't believe in ourselves, we don't believe that we're capable of great things, we have been raised to be quiet." You can learn more about Carolina in the links below.Website: https://carolinaveira.com/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/carolinaveira/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/caroveira/Facebook: https://web.facebook.com/CarolinaMVeiraTwitter: https://twitter.com/CaroVeiraPodcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/ru/podcast/hablemos-inclusion-leadership-purpose/id1583668397?l=ukIf you're listening to the Dr. B Show Podcast, please subscribe, share, and we're listening for your feedback.

During Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, Susan G. Komen is encouraging Asian American women to prioritize their breast health and get regular screenings. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in Asian American and Pacific Islander women. Although Asian American women in the U.S. have similar screening mammography rates as Black, white and Hispanic women, they have more delays in follow-up care after an abnormal mammogram than white women. Today's guest, like many people, never imagined that receiving a breast cancer diagnosis was something that could happen to her. Eating healthy and being aware of risk factors and overall health has always been a part of her lifestyle and she and even serves as the General Counsel of Susan G. Komen, with no breast cancer in her family history. Yet, in April 2021, she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

I'm Stacey Simms and these are the top diabetes stories and headlines of the past seven days. we go live on social media first and then All sources linked up at diabetes dash connections dot com when this airs as a podcast. XX In the news is brought to you by T1D Exchange! T1D Exchange is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving outcomes for the entire T1D population. https://t1dexchange.org/stacey/ XX Our top story, Black children with type 1 diabetes experience disparities in health outcomes compared with other racial and ethnic groups with similar neighborhood opportunity profiles. That's according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Network Open. This was a very big study – more than 70-thousand patient encounters under the age of 21 from 2009 to 2018. They looked at something called the Child Opportunity Index. This It combines data from neighborhood-level indicators, like good schools, parks and playgrounds, clear air and safe housing. They found that the probability of readmission within a year was significantly higher among Black children with a very low COI category versus Hispanic children and White children at the same COI category. These researchers say doctors and educators need to be aware and include interventions that target racial disparities. https://www.physiciansweekly.com/outcomes-worse-for-children-with-type-1-diabetes-who-are-black XX New research suggests the people of certain racial ethnic groups should be screened for diabetes at lower body mass index than white people. A recommendation that contradicts recent guidelines from the United States Preventive Services Task Force. At a time when a lot of medicine is trying to rid itself of race-based tools this could be tricky.. but these researchers say that using a one-size-fits-all approach to screening, when diabetes is two to four times more prevalent and more deadly in Black, Hispanic, and Asian Americans, is likely to result in underdiagnosis of the disease, and widen health gaps. https://www.statnews.com/2022/05/09/race-ethnicity-bmi-diabetes-screening/ XX New partnership between JDRF, Yale University and a company called NexImmune. That company has something called Artificial Immune Modulation nanoparticles and the idea here is to if that could work with Teplizumab to delay or prevent type 1. Teplizumab is already being tested as a prevention method and is back in front of the FDA. NexImmune says it's wider plan is to use the body's own T-cells to generate a specific immune response to prevent not just diabetes but other auto immune conditions and even cancer. https://www.jdrf.org/press-releases/neximmune-yale-and-jdrf-enter-into-600k-research-partnership-for-type-1-diabetes/ XX Oramed Pharmaceuticals announced this week that it has enrolled 100% of the patients in the world's first Phase 3 study of oral insulin This is being looked at just for type 2 right now. The primary endpoint of the study is to compare the efficacy of ORMD-0801 to placebo in improving glycemic control, with a secondary endpoint of assessing the change from baseline in fasting plasma glucose at 26 weeks. They hope to announce results in January of 2023. https://www.biopharma-reporter.com/Article/2022/05/05/Oramed-hits-oral-insulin-clinical-trial-milestone XX New partnership between two diabetes heavy weights. The Diabetes Research Institute, DRI Foundation Canada (DRIFCAN) and Alberta Diabetes Institute (ADI) have announced a research partnership The CEO of DRI says "Type 1 diabetes knows no borders or boundaries; nor should the research to find a cure. There's a lot of research funded by these groups, included islet and stem cell transplantation. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/diabetes-research-institute-foundation-joins-193300513.html XX Right back to the news in a moment but first we've got a new sponsor. As I mentioned, The T1D Exchange Registry is an online research study, designed to harness the power of individuals with type 1 diabetes. It's a research study conducted online over time, designed to foster innovation and improve the lives of people with T1D. Personal information remains confidential and participation is fully voluntary. Once enrolled, participants will complete annual surveys and have the opportunity to sign up for other studies on specific topics related to T1D. By sharing opinions, experiences and data, patients can help advance meaningful T1D treatment, care and policy Sign up at T1DExchange.org slash Stacey (that's S-T-A-C-E-Y). XX Insulet's CEO is stepping down.. Shacey Petrovic has been in the role since 2019 and says she's stepping down June first for amily reasons. Petrovec will stay on as an advisor for the next year to aid in the transition and support the company's launch of the Omnipod 5. She'll replaced by Jim Hollingshead, who's been on Insulet's Board for the last three years. He's been the president of ResMed – a company that focuses on advances in sleep medicine- for the last 12 years. https://www.fiercebiotech.com/medtech/insulet-swap-ceos-amid-omnipod-5-insulin-pump-roll-out XX I feel like I haven't done a newscast in a few weeks without mentioning model Lila Moss. After being on the cover of UK Vogue and making headlines at the Met Gala, she's now showing off her Libre and Omnipod In a new Fendi and Versace ad campaign https://pagesix.com/2022/05/11/lila-moss-wears-diabetes-monitor-in-fendi-versace-ad-campaign/ XX Got an update for you on T1D The Movie. We talked about this a few months ago – Star Trek actor Noah Averbach Katz is producing a short film with type 1 at the center. He started a kick starter campaign and got a wonderful response from the start trek community which, along with the diabetes community, fully funded the project. I got an update that he is starting filming this week. He also says if you backed the project at the level where you'd get a token of appreciation, they're working on those too.. more to come. XX Interesting find on the toy front. I had never heard of Squishmallows but people say the stuffed toys are soothing while others say it's just a scam and there's nothing inherently special about the plush toys. Either way, one of the limited edition plushies is being marketed as having type 1 diabetes. There's nothing on the toy itself to show that it might use diabetes technology – this is just listed in the toy description on line. I'm trying to find out the story behind this so letme know if you know atying! XX On this week's long format episode, you'll hear about the Mental Health Plus diabetes conference.. the organizers said every conference has one session on mental health – we really need more. So they did it. Love that! Next week, as I mentioned, Dexcom's Chief Technical Officer on the G7, some interesting new info.. and I asked him all of your questions.

Producer Andrew Kolvet dives into the newest polling data out that is raising alarm bells within the Biden Regime on its collapsing support among women, urban, and Hispanic voters. Just how far has Biden's support fallen? Andrew breaks down the polling number by number, group by group, in what amounts to an electoral crisis for the current occupant of the White House. Next up, Andrew welcomes Michale Knowles from the Daily Wire, to dive into Catholics flagging support for the pro-life movement. Michael gives his take on why Catholic support for the right to life is lagging behind and offers his best pro-life pitch in the process. Finally, Andrew and Michael dissect Elon Musk's recent comments where he makes it expressly clear that Twitter's ban on 45 was not only bad business, it was morally wrong on many levels. Will the president come back to Twitter should he run again in 2024, and is it actually a positive that he's not yet back on Twitter in the lead up to the midterms?  Support the show: http://www.charliekirk.com/support See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

You may have seen media articles recently about Melissa Lucio – the first ever Hispanic woman to be sentenced to death in Texas.  Melissa was due to be executed in April 2022 and she was granted a stay of execution just days before her scheduled death. Melissa is a mother of 14 children.  She was convicted of murdering her 2 year-old daughter Mariah in 2007.  Mariah was found unresponsive after an alleged fall down stairs.  An autopsy was conducted and at the time, it was determined that Mariah died from blunt force trauma.  She also had bruising of the kidneys, lungs and spinal cord.  When Melissa was taken in for questioning, she was interrogated for hours, without proper legal representation.  She was not offered food or water.  She denied over 100 times that she caused Mariah's death.  Eventually, Melissa broke down and ‘confessed' to Mariah's murder.  “I don't know what you want me to say,” she told authorities. “I'm responsible for it … I guess I did it.” Over the years, Melissa's team have made many appeals in her case.  She also has high-profile supporters such as the Innocence Project and Kim Kardashian.   Melissa's case will now be re-examined to determine if she is eligible for a new trial.   In this episode of the True Crime Society Podcast we discuss the death of Mariah Alvarez and the conviction of her mother Melissa Lucio.

Does your agency's branding stand out from the competition? Is your offering and positioning unique? Does it establish your agency's authority in your niche? Today's guest explains how he turned his speaking career into a thriving agency thanks to smart branding. Travis Brown is the founder and CEO of Mojo Up Marketing+Media, an agency focused on building unstoppable personal and company brands. Travis has been building his brand since long before stepping into the agency world. Now, with his diverse and talented marketers, he helps others figure out and grow their brands. In this episode, we'll discuss: Getting started with public speaking Leveraging speaking engagements to grow the agency What works with branding.

Subscribe Apple | Spotify | iHeart Radio | Stitcher | Radio FM Taking the First Steps in the Public Speaking Space Before ever thinking about starting his agency, Travis began a successful career as a motivational speaker. One of the most valuable lessons he learned was that the hardest part wasn't the speaking itself, it was getting people to pay him to get on their stage and speak. He hired a coach early on who taught him to invest time in figuring out his brand and unique positioning. Once he learned to do that for himself, it led to more than 2,500 paid talks over 10 years. Travis started out speaking about leadership, management conflict, and corporate training and eventually turned to youth speaking. Later on, he got a creative position as America's anti-bullying coach, where he could use his experience while also having a big impact. This new role was an opportunity to get to another level as he toured the country and had interviews on national TV. In hindsight, this taught Travis the power of creating unique positioning in the market where, instead of competing with anybody else, he was complimenting them. After many years in that industry and working as VP of marketing in a bank, he decided to start his own agency to help other people build their brands. How Can You Start a Speaking Career? It is a powerful feeling to get up on a stage. It's the sort of experience which changes how people see you. In fact, Travis now rejects invitations to tradeshows without a speaking engagement. He recognizes the moment you step on a stage people will look at you as an expert, which is a game-changer for elevating your brand. Try to link speaking engagements to your area of expertise and your core beliefs so you really come off as an expert. Travis always takes the topic he's asked to develop and links it back to his branding, which is his specialty. How can you start? He recommends starting local. If you have a niche, look for an opportunity to do a breakout session. For example, if you specialize in marketing for dentists, reach out to the local dentist association. Once you do find an opportunity, build the presentation thinking like a marketer: Have video and engaging content. Offer valuable nuggets of info. Have a free offer to get them into the funnel. Following that, focus on leveraging the first speaking engagement into another and then another. Before you know it, you'll be on a big stage with an audience filled with your ideal customer avatar. Being on stage will put you in the position of being the expert who can help them. They'll get in line to hire you and your agency. Turning Speaking Career Into a Thriving Agency Travis says he has done it both the right and the wrong way. When he started his agency, he had accumulated a lot of experience in elevating himself and his brand. However, he didn't know how to grow an agency. He got out there and got a lot of business for the agency with his brand. He soon learned it couldn't be all about him. It had to be about the team and the focus really needed to shift to showcase their abilities. His first attempt to do this didn't go as well as expected. It was done too quickly and it didn't make sense to remove him so fast when his personal brand was driving all the revenue. He had to start over and get to a point where he transfers the knowledge and credibility over to the agency.         A perfect example of how to do this right is Gary Vaynerchuck and Vayner Media. Gary is the brand, but clients never expect to work directly with Gary himself. Travis has started to introduce his audience to his team, instead of just making it the Gary show. This is how Travis is rethinking his model. Building your personal brand can be the fastest way to bring in revenue for the agency. You just need to know how to do it correctly so the agency can shine as well. What Has Worked for His Agency's Branding Right now Travis and his team are leaning into the “diverse and talented” core of the agency. They realized they have a very diverse team, which is not common at all. The team of 15 people includes black men and women, Asian women, and Hispanic and white women. That diversity led to opportunities with companies that are looking to: Work with a diverse agency, and Trying to figure out how to get a similarly diverse team. Now they are focusing on helping clients tell a story and develop an impactful brand through the lens of diversity. This way, they can help tell diversity stories by actually being one. They recognize that the diversity within the team helps them be that much better at telling diversity stories. A lot of agencies may say they are diverse but can't actually back it up. Credibility is so important nowadays and people are able to tell if you're claiming you can do something but not actually doing it yourself. For his agency, diversity has become an important part of who they are and it also works as a unique identifier, which all agencies need. What Are Your Agency's Unique Identifiers? Travis believes your agency should have its own “three uniques,” which are three things that identify and differentiate your agency. Some other agencies maybe have one or even two similar differentiators, but no other company should have those exact three since they are true to your specific DNA. These identifiers will help you create your own unique persona as an agency. Those are your core values and how you will get very different types of people in your team to all work towards one single goal. Moreover, being clear about your brand and core values will help you find like-minded individuals to join your team. For Travis, diversity is part of the agency's culture and what he is building. He is passionate about building a brand and telling a story to help his client make the most impact and he wants a team that is equally passionate about that. 2 Tips on Hiring and Client Success Travis likes to make sure that whoever his hiring is really passionate about doing the thing they're hired to do. A lot of times in an agency you're trying to fill some roles quickly. You end up hiring someone who is good but is not necessarily passionate about their role. In hindsight, he would really slow down and make sure people convince him that they want to be in their position within his company. He also wishes he had spent more time understanding how to create a better client experience. His agency's end product is always good, but the process was sometimes a bumpy ride for clients. Now he really wants to focus on making the entire experience exceptional from start to finish. Improving Customer Experience Remember that you may be celebrating every time to make a sale, but the client is probably thinking “did I make the right decision?” A good way to ease their anxiety is to immediately communicate with them after the sale. Jason likes to send quick personalized videos where he welcomes the new client and offers a few pointers. People are usually surprised to learn his videos are not automated. This is why it's worth it to think about ways to make each client feel appreciated. That extra effort will definitely separate you from everyone else. Travis has learned there's a difference between having a talented team and having a successful process. A successful process leads to a great experience. You need to map out every single instance within the client journey where you can impact and connect with them. As the lead strategist in his agency, he has also learned once clients get to a stage where they'll be communicating directly with the team, they feel abandoned by him. He empowers his team and lets them do what they do best. However, he is working on finding a way this in a way clients still feel taken care of. As an agency owner, you need to position yourself as a thought leader and make it clear at some point clients will be working with the team.  Build up the team and make sure they know they will get better results than if you took care of every single aspect. Also, map out the process so they'll know who they can turn to at each stage of the process. Should We Look for Mentors in The Agency World? After years of building his business from scratch, Travis admits he would've liked having someone to turn to. Nothing like that existed when he or Jason were building their agencies, but it is the entire reason behind the mastermind. Jason's goal is to be the resource he wished he had when he was starting out. Think about how many times you've given advice to your team or partners. You probably can't seem to do that with yourself and it's because you are too attached to your business and your way of doing things to see other possible ways to approach a solution to your problems. If you learn to ditch the competition mindset and look at it more as a community that understands and supports your most difficult challenges, then you won't need a mentor.

Full transcripts and resources referenced in the show are always available at officialhacksandwonks.com and in our episode notes. So today I am thrilled to welcome to the show, Nicole Gomez, who is a candidate for State Representative in the 36th Legislative District. Welcome to the show, Nicole. [00:00:47] Nicole Gomez: Thank you for having me, Crystal. [00:00:49] Crystal Fincher: Thank you for joining us. So I guess I will start out by asking what made you decide to run for State Rep in the 36th right now? [00:00:58] Nicole Gomez: Yeah, well, I'm running to be the next State Representative for the 36th district because I actually would like to help create an economy that works for everyone. I've been quietly doing the work behind the scenes for years and advising others on how to accomplish their policy goals. And I think now's a good time to get started. [00:01:21] Crystal Fincher: You have been doing it for years - full disclosure to people - I work with you in a different capacity now that you are the Executive Director of the Institute for a Democratic Future, commonly known as IDF around these parts. And I'm on the board of that organization and an alum and appreciate work there. But what made you - to that point, you've been helping to mentor a lot of people because of your experience in working in the background - what in your experience do you think helps inform your candidacy and what kind of legislator you'd be? [00:01:58] Nicole Gomez: I guess you're asking more of an origin story - so from about the age of five, an illness actually - an illness in the family left us homeless. And so from that moment, there was a lot of working through bureaucracy. My parents are both Hispanic, not very well educated - and helping them navigate some pretty complex systems, and so I always had vowed that, this is ridiculous. And so, even at a very young age, I vowed to do something about it. And so that's where I'm at right now. I have my own non-profit organization and I co-founded Alliance for a Healthy Washington and we have been working towards transformative healthcare reform here in Washington state, currently sit on the Universal Health Care Commission appointed by Governor Inslee - we're working to develop a healthcare plan for Washington state once the federal waivers are approved in order to innovate here. And so things are moving. [00:03:22] Crystal Fincher: Well, we just came out of a legislative session where there were definitely some great things that happened, and other things that left some people disappointed. What was your evaluation of this past session? [00:03:36] Nicole Gomez: Yeah. Well, when I'm thinking about this past session, there was some things that I would like to see move forward next session. For starters, I would say - there's a bill called Keep Our Care Act - I don't remember the bill number off the top of my head, I'm sorry - but essentially that bill is part of a puzzle piece in our healthcare system. What you see right now is these large healthcare systems coming into Washington state - and they're faith-based and they're buying up a lot of our hospitals - for instance, Swedish was bought out by Providence. And so, when you're thinking about the current state of this past week - abortion access and access to equitable healthcare and in reproductive health - having those large hospital systems could potentially become an issue if they're not going to provide certain services to people who need them. Another one that I was thinking about is the middle housing bill - I know that Rep Macri had been working on that bill for a number of years and Rep Bateman was - took it over in a different lens - and they are amazing legislator, first of all. And they've been able to push this pretty far. And so I'm excited to see what comes out of that - was disappointed that it wasn't signed because we need more affordable housing. [00:05:35] Crystal Fincher: We absolutely do - when it comes to affordable housing, what can we do to provide more of it? What can you do in your capacity as a state legislator? What are your priorities for helping? [00:05:49] Nicole Gomez: Yeah, that's the million billion dollar question. I think a lot of legislators have been working on this issue for a number of years and it's not just a Washington problem, it's also a nationwide problem. And it stems from a variety of areas - there are, but that there's no way around it - we need more housing. We need more density in a place like - 'cause my district would be Seattle - so particularly in the Seattle area, there's not a lot of land to build on, and so you have to be smart about future planning. And so this particular - the middle housing bill was amazing because it would allow us to be able to build a little bit larger condo spaces, or multiplexes a little bit larger - six unit or four units, whatever - it's better than the single-family housing that we have right now, because we can house more people. [00:07:05] Crystal Fincher: We can and one of the sticking points with that and that had been raised is - well, hey, we need to keep the character of our single-family, big-home neighborhoods. We need to maintain our property values, which are skyrocketing. Should we be increasing the zoning and increasing the allowed density in single-family areas? [00:07:35] Nicole Gomez: Yeah, so, I don't think it's should we - we have to. If we're ever going to address our homelessness situation, the affordability situation - we just need to do it. Something that the state can do is to legalize that middle housing - right now, the cities are in control of their zoning practices and a lot of them are exclusionary zoning laws. I was thinking back to something my husband said - and the house that we currently live in, that we bought at the bottom of the recession - would not be able to afford it today. His grandpa couldn't have moved into this house because of the zoning laws that the City of Seattle had back then. A lot of those zoning laws were very racist, and they kept certain neighborhoods more, or less - there was less people of color in them. The houses are all single-family housing, there's not very many apartment buildings. And so, while I understand people wanting to keep the character, it's just a necessity. [00:09:01] Crystal Fincher: It really is, and that bill is a great bill. I also wish it would have passed. We absolutely, in my opinion, need to move forward with density. And I think that's becoming a more common opinion. Certainly all the folks who were pushing for that bill, and Reps Macri and Bateman, have been instrumental in moving the conversation forward, especially in these past several months. It's part of the solution. It's not all of the solution. There is a lot more that needs to happen. What more can be done to help with housing affordability? And should social housing, like the initiative that is currently having signatures collected in Seattle, should that be part of it? [00:09:51] Nicole Gomez: I think that we're in this crisis mode where we have to throw everything at it, at this problem, before things spiral further out of control. I have not fully read that initiative yet, but I've heard about it from people and they seem really excited about it. So, it's something I'm looking forward to digging in and learning more about. But certainly everything that we're able to do is needed. Something else that I was thinking about as I was filling out my questionnaires, as candidates do - one of the questions was about labor. My dad used to be a carpenter and so I'm thinking about how COVID has affected people's lifestyles, and I know right now that there's a lack of workforce within the trades. And so another thing that we can do at the state level is to help provide training programs for trades. And I think it's important to look at that for community colleges, high schools, apprenticeships - those are all things that we're going to need, especially if we're moving towards a green future. [00:11:30] Crystal Fincher: That makes sense. I'm thinking about it and the conversation about housing and housing affordability, and thinking about homelessness, which is absolutely related to the issue of housing affordability. It is essentially - the biggest issue is that they don't have and can't afford housing in their present situation. A lot of the homeless policy to attack, to address homelessness - I guess that was a Freudian slip - to attack homelessness - that's the manifestation of it in a lot of areas. A lot of the policy to address homelessness is dictated on a local level by city and county governments. Is there anything that you can do in your capacity as a state legislator to help reduce the amount of people who are living on the street? [00:12:18] Nicole Gomez: It's such a complex issue - there are a variety of reasons that lead to it, and I think we need to be mindful of how we move forward in addressing, making sure that people are taking care of. One of the things that I think about when I think about homelessness is the social determinants of health. My work in healthcare policy has really hammered that into my head. And so, they need to have access - it's not just, oh, here's some houses. That's fine, but you have to have access to healthcare services, you have to have access to mental health supports, you have to have a safe, physical environment, and then also education. And then once you have all those things into place, then you're looking at adding in that employment piece - because people can't be employed unless they're well, and so how do we get them well? [00:13:32] Crystal Fincher: Yeah, that absolutely makes sense. Is there anything you can do to help people get stable enough to maintain stable housing, to afford that housing, and to be able to continue to move on with their lives? [00:13:52] Nicole Gomez: Yeah, so that one is - we recently put some money - not this session, but the session before - into mental health. But it's going to take a while for those things to balance out because the process of setting up programs takes a while. But this past session, one of the bills that I was working to help pass, and it actually ended up being a budget proviso, but it expands mental healthcare to people. So there are mental health providers who are looking to do pro bono work, and this bill, or this idea, was brought to me by one of our members. And they're a nonprofit organization here in Seattle and they serve King, Snohomish, and Pierce right now, but they were being approached by mental health providers who are interested in pro bono work. However, there wasn't a program, that we could find, that would be able to screen patients. And so they actually already have something set up for other healthcare needs. And so they were like, well, we could screen patients, but we need help funding an additional position. And so that's what this proviso does - it's going to be a test to see if the program works. It's been working pretty well in another state, and so that has increased it's - with telehealth now - hopefully people will have a little bit more stability because what the studies show is that if you have access to regular mental healthcare, then you have less issues. And that makes sense, and so those are the kinds of things that I'd be looking at as a legislator. [00:16:01] Crystal Fincher: I got it - talking about health right now, we are still in a pandemic. COVID is still spreading. We still have a very problematic virus that is spreading wildly. What should we be doing right now to address it? And I'm asking that in the context of - a lot of the COVID protections that had been in place and financial supports, whether its the cost, having free testing, free vaccinations, access to some time off, extra unemployment, the eviction moratoriums - all of those policies and protections that were put into place, many of them have expired. And so we're still in a situation where COVID is spreading, but we don't have the kind of rigor or coverage with testing, or treatment, or even people being able to manage being sick that we did before. Should the state be doing more? Would you do something different as a state legislator? [00:17:07] Nicole Gomez: Yeah, it's a sticky situation. But first of all, my answer would be, yes. I would try to push for at least some of the services. For instance, I was in Yakima a couple of weeks ago for work, and one of the people I was with was like - oh, I have to go on a flight when I get back to Seattle and I need a COVID test for this conference that I need to be at. And so she started looking up to see whether or not there was anything there that she could just go quickly get a test and have her results. And there's not - there was nothing open and we were just floored that that was a thing. It's always so easy in certain areas of the state to get a test that that just didn't even cross our minds. And that's happening all over the place right now. So what we're seeing is a huge spike in COVID cases and it's just not working. So definitely I would want to see more availability of, not only the vaccine, but also testing sites or - and I know that we still have the ability to order tests online but quite frankly, I don't think a lot of people know about that. It's not like we sent out something in the mail - it's information that you have to seek out. And if you're not watching local TV - I don't know how many people do anymore because we've got all these really great streaming services - it becomes hard. But at the legislature, I would love to see better funding for public health because let's face it - with the way climate change has accelerated, I think that we're gonna see a lot more of this type of situation. We're going to see potential new, novel diseases and we have learned a lot from this pandemic - and I think that will be helpful in shoring up some of our public health programs moving forward. [00:19:25] Crystal Fincher: Well, I certainly hope so. And the projections moving forward, considering everything, are not necessarily encouraging. But I'm hoping that more can be done to mitigate that. Now there's a lot of people who are very concerned about crime and afraid of being victimized, and the conversation about public safety has been intense and getting more intense with very differing viewpoints sometimes. What can you do - again, an area where a lot of the policy is enacted on a city and county level - in localities with police departments and the city's dictating them, sheriff's departments and the county's dictating them. In your role as a state legislator, what can you do to address people's concerns that they're not feeling safe? [00:20:23] Nicole Gomez: I think everybody deserves to feel secure in their - where they live - we can do better in that area. I've heard from businesses who have had their windows smashed in just overnight for no apparent reason. I think some of the things that people connect to public safety is homelessness, because they see homeless people out and about. And so in their head, they're like - oh, that's the problem. And then there's other people who see that the problem is drug use, and that is also a problem. So you're going through these things and you're like - we need to address the root causes of what's going on, quite frankly. More police is not the answer. The answer is to get people to support they need, whether whether that be treatment programs - I don't tell people this very often, but my brother-in-law went through a situation not long ago that ended up with us having to try to seek care for him. And it was really difficult. It took a few times to get him cleaned up and getting into the programs in the first place - it's not easy, it's not cheap, it's pretty much an exclusive situation if you don't have the funds to do that. And so, you're looking around and you're seeing all of these different problems and it's just - it comes down to we haven't been properly funding our safety net programs for decades and it's time to do that. [00:22:36] Crystal Fincher: It is time to do that. What would you prioritize when it comes to funding safety net programs or actions? What is at the top of your list and that you think would make the biggest difference? [00:22:50] Nicole Gomez: Tax reform. We need tax reform. That's the long and short of it - I have heard from neighbors their property taxes are really high. We have seen that that there are - there's just so many different problems with our tax system. We don't have an income tax here in Washington state - I would love to see a progressive income tax if that were ever a possibility. But I say, what we do to start is to - Rep Frame had a tax on an excess of wealth - it was a 1% tax on the value of stocks, bonds, and intangible assets over a billion dollars. So essentially only the very wealthy few would be paying that, but our tax code is upside down - the low and middle-income households are paying up to 17% of their income on taxes, while the wealthy few pay like 3% - that's ridiculous. I don't know how else to make it resonate with people, but I'm trying. When I talk to people about all these programs, I'm like - that's great, I love it, but we need to fund it. So let's get onboard, let's organize, let's talk to the rest of the state, let's talk to folks here in Seattle - educate people on what this would mean for them, putting a real dollar value on what they'd be saving or be getting back into their pay so that they could afford their rent increases that have been happening. Gosh, it's just a whole thing, and people are tired and frustrated and want action. [00:24:51] Crystal Fincher: People are tired and frustrated and want action. And another thing that they are also tired and frustrated about is looking at the projections that are - and what's happening in our world around us - with extreme heat, extreme cold events, wildfires, just so much related to climate change already. And the projections being very dire that if we don't take significant action now, we are in for a world of hurt and our children are in for a world that we don't recognize. What should we be doing? And what will you lean on as a state legislator to address climate change and mitigate the impacts that we're experiencing? [00:25:43] Nicole Gomez: Yeah. So, we all - I hope we all understand that this needs to be addressed. This is probably one of the top issues around the world. We need to address this situation. One of the things that I love about the 36th district is that there are so many people who are amazing experts in climate change policy, and so I'm super excited to have the chance to work with them on it - because it's a policy area that I haven't fully delved into yet. But something that I have appreciated, that the state has done, is last session they passed this transformative bill - it's called the HEAL Act - and it is pretty amazing, because one of the things that the HEAL Act does is it puts the focus back onto communities like a ground-up approach. So, they have a health disparities map and it also, on that map, adds to it some of the environmental factors. And so looking at that, they're targeting certain communities are most effected and going in as state agencies - I think there's seven state agencies that are tasked with this community building. And they're going in, talking to people who live in those communities, and then will be bringing recommendations based on what the community input is. So I think that that's something that is important. Other things that we would have to do is - it's starting to transition to green buildings. We need more materials for that. Right now it doesn't make much sense, but I think that right now we are getting - a lot of the materials are not made in the country. And so when you're thinking towards what Washington looks like in the future, we have such a huge manufacturing employment base, or manufacturing industry. What about switching those over to making green materials? What does that look like? So there's plenty of things to consider and I'm excited to learn more and to work with advocates on it. [00:28:34] Crystal Fincher: Yeah, absolutely. When it comes to greenhouse gas emissions, our transportation sector is responsible for the majority of emissions here. There was a lot of conversation during the session about whether or not we should be expanding highways at this time, given that we know it doesn't reduce traffic, but it does increase emissions. Will you support or oppose the expansion of highways in future transportation packages? [00:29:08] Nicole Gomez: I don't think that the highway expansions - some of them are unnecessary. The more room you have, the harder - it doesn't actually help traffic, if that makes sense. [00:29:27] Crystal Fincher: It does make sense. It's counterintuitive because we've grown up with a lot of people just establishing conventional wisdom, which oftentimes is not attached to reality, that - oh, traffic is bad, add another lane, that'll do it. But it actually makes traffic worse when you add that lane. But with that, so given that and the reason for so many expansions is to accommodate future capacity and reduce traffic - would you vote for a bill that had highway expansion? [00:30:04] Nicole Gomez: It really does depend on the location. It depends on - so what's happening right now is that because it's so unaffordable to live here in Seattle, people are moving further out. And so if there is an area that's growing and that needs it and it's further away from where there are jobs and if you're having to drive more than a couple of miles to get to a grocery store - those are all real things. So, I can't say that - no, completely, no more new roads. You can't bike in some areas, right? There's mountains. So those are - each situation is a very separate thing. One of the things that we're trying to do is increase options for transit, public transit. And so where does the public transit drive on? So those are all - until we have more walkable, small cities and areas to where people can get to everything that they need in a really small, short area - I have two grocery stores nearby, but that's not the case in other areas of the state. So, I think it's a very individual situation. [00:31:41] Crystal Fincher: You mentioned displacement and people being pushed out of areas where they live, areas have been gentrified, people have been priced out and excluded, people are having a harder time living close to where they work, and people are very concerned that Seattle - now with an average median income over a hundred thousand dollars - is just going to be a place for people who are well-off and wealthy. And if you have an average income for the state, for the country - then you just are not included in that kind of an area, or have the opportunity to live in a neighborhood that's walkable and dense, or have access to services that now are increasingly concentrated around cities and urban areas and not in areas that a lot of people are being pushed out to. What can you do as a legislator? What kind of policy or action could you take to address that? [00:32:46] Nicole Gomez: That's a good question. So you have the ability to diversify neighborhoods through building more housing in those areas. That's how you build diversity in neighborhoods - is allowing those places to be built. So a lot of the neighborhoods in the 36th are single-family housing areas, there are less places where you can put apartment-style or condo-style housing than there used to be. I don't even know how long ago it was - 15, 20 years, I don't remember - but there used to be a greater ability to build density and that's not the case now. There's actually very few places where you can build higher up, so a lot of what we can do as a legislator, or as legislators - is to partner with our cities, partner with our counties, work on actual plans government-to-government initiatives are a thing. You're there to represent people and essentially you're a lobbyist for your people that live in your neighborhood, that live in your - where you live. And so, you take their ideas and try to make them happen. And so part of that is having a really good relationship with your local people - call up people from King County, go testify at their meetings - it's real. [00:34:54] Crystal Fincher: I got you. So there are also conversations, and going back to the last legislative session, about what we need to do to restore trust and build trust in institutions involved in our criminal legal system, including policing. There've been a number of incidents - obviously we've talked a lot over the years on this show just about various incidents - but there was action taken this past legislative session to roll back a number of policies. There are also several challenges from within our system of policing, within our systems of prosecution that seem to allow bad acts to occur without any accountability. And a lot of people are like - hey, we are asking a minimum wage earner to be more accountable, to employ more judgment, and they're experiencing more consequences than some of the highly-paid professionals in policing, in prosecutor's office, judges. One, do you agree with the action that was taken this past legislative session, and what more can be done to increase accountability and trust with the public? [00:36:25] Nicole Gomez: I don't agree with rolling back what was done. And I will say that I used to work for a district attorney's office, I was a crime victims coordinator, I've worked with a ton of law enforcement - different types of agencies even - and they have a rough job and so I have respect for them. It's hard to go out every day and deal with stuff that you've been - the same people, the same problems - and I know it's their job, right? That's a real thing, but it gets frustrating because I think they also feel like they're not being listened to, so I get that. At the same time, they're accountable to the public - they're public servants. And so, that is - you have to hold those things together at the same time and it's difficult, especially because right now they've lost all public trust. And I would like to see them meet the public halfway. It feels right now - it feels like they got their feelings hurt and are pouting. And instead of trying to collaboratively work on the problem - so rebuilding trust takes a long time - and it takes transparency, it takes accountability, it takes effort, and it takes people to get out there, show up, be there for your community. Go to the night-out parties at your local, in your streets, in your blocks. Do the - get out of your car and go walk your neighborhood, bike your neighborhood, meet people, talk - those are the kinds of things that I think would help to rebuild trust. As far as the legislature goes, I would love to dig in and learn a little bit more about the behind the scenes, the sausage of what happened, because I have a feeling that there's a lot that went into it and I'd be interested in talking to everybody. One of the things that I'm a big believer in is making sure that you've researched all sides of any given problem. And currently from what I've seen - it's through media and other people - so actually knowing what those behind-the-scenes conversations are would help in figuring out how to move forward. That's definitely a necessity in order to tackle such a hard problem. But I also get that they're frustrated and it goes back to those social programs. We have to do something. We literally have not been funding them for years. [00:40:17] Crystal Fincher: All right. Well, we are coming to the end here, but as we close, there are - you're in a crowded race for the open seat, there are a lot of candidates in the race. Why should voters choose you? And how would their lives be impacted differently with you versus the other candidates? [00:40:38] Nicole Gomez: Yeah. Well, I think with me - I come with a variety of experience, lived experience. I come with a few different fields - I've worked in healthcare policy as an advocate, as a volunteer advocate. I've been training people on civics, civic engagement. I have been - I've worked in workers' compensation for over 15 years. There's - it's a multifaceted person who hasn't had one specific path - it's all culminated into this ability to know how systems work. It's what I do. For me, I think the people of the 36th would get a thoughtful, humble servant. I have an innate curiosity about why we do the things we do. And I have a proven drive to change something if it no longer serves our community, and I would be honored to be able to represent this district that I love and call home. [00:41:52] Crystal Fincher: Well, thank you so much for joining us today. [00:41:54] Nicole Gomez: Thank you - great talking to you. [00:41:56] Crystal Fincher: You too.

In this episode of the Dr. B Show Podcast, Dr. B welcomes mathematician and founder of the Hispanics Inspiring Students' Performance and Achievement or HISPA, Dr. Ivonne Diaz Claisse. Dr. Ivonne talks about the need to provide more role models for young people who will validate their dreams. Dr. Ivonne believes in the potential of young people, they just need to be exposed to the different opportunities that are available today at an early age. Through HISPA, Dr. Ivonne hopes to show young people the path to success, and equip them with what they need to get their desired career.HIGHLIGHTSEarly dreams and founding HISPATo study mathematics is to become a creative problem solver Developing a love of math through FibonacciStudents need role models to validate their dreams How you can help more students through HISPAQUOTESDr. Ivonne: "When you study mathematics, I always say, you can take any job. I always say that when you have an analytic mind, you are a problem solver. And we have to say that those are the skills for the future. We don't know what the jobs of the future really are. But if we focus on educating students and giving them the opportunity to really look at problems and look for solutions and be creative." Dr. Ivonne: "Now I see a problem in society. Not having access to a role model is a roadblock for our youth. That should not be the case. So let's eradicate that problem. It's just looking at it, and then finding how do we optimize the solution for that. We are optimizing the time of the individuals that are volunteering, and we are optimizing the times of the schools and the students. So it becomes a math problem." Dr. Ivonne: "Adelante si se puede.

The Everyday PM: Project Management Principles for Your Everyday Life
What it Means to be a Filipina Project Manager

The Everyday PM: Project Management Principles for Your Everyday Life

Play Episode Listen Later May 9, 2022 5:47


In celebration of Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month, I talk about what it means to be a Filipina project manager. From cultural norms to the meaning of hospitality, I believe so much of my culture is intertwined with my success as a PM. If there is one word to describe Filipinos, it's hospitable. Filipinos are renowned for their hospitality. Whether you are a tourist visiting one of our many islands or a family friend looking for a warm meal, Filipinos will go out of their way to roll out the red carpet to ensure you feel welcome. Hospitality is embedded in the hearts of every Filipino. It's this natural ability to make guests feel welcome that makes Filipino culture outstandingly distinct. It is also why this trait lends well to being an effective project manager. The role of a project manager goes beyond planning, organizing, and directing the completion of projects. There is another layer that deals directly with people. According to ProofHub, project managers are generally responsible for the completion of a company's most important projects, and as such, they need to have excellent leadership skills, coordination abilities, and motivational skills. This includes leading a team and influencing them to achieve a common goal, often without direct reporting authority. When you consider the common traits of an influential project manager, two words come to mind: empathy and leader. In order to lead, you must know what motivates your team to march toward a common goal. Filipinos are hospitable because we care about people. So much so that we will sacrifice our own comfort and well-being on behalf of the feelings of others. I can't think of anything more altruistic than this notion. When you couple this practice with the role of a project manager, you get a combination for success. So why is it that we don't see more Filipinos in project management-type roles? According to Zippier, Asians are the third most common ethnicity among project managers at 8.1% compared to 70% white and 12% Hispanic or Latino. Even more interesting is the fact that only one-third of project managers are female. Perhaps it's because Filipinos are driven to take up actual hospitality roles. Or cultural norms play into Filipinos' belief that the best way to help others is to take up roles that specifically fill this need, like nurses or doctors. Whatever the case may be, I hope that even though I find myself, once again, in the minority, that there are Filipinas out there listening to this podcast who are making the same connection that I have. I never considered how my culture and beliefs would have a direct impact on my ability to lead as a project manager until I started to recount my greatest achievements. Most involve putting the needs of others or the project over my own, like the many countless hours I have spent problem-solving other people's problems because if it impacts the team or the project, then it is my problem, too. Or my passion to find more efficient ways for teams to execute their work because in doing so, it alleviates any burden or pressure from the team that plays an important role in completing a project. It's this type of thinking and doing that weighs into my strengths as a project manager. And I can't help but be proud knowing that my culture has a lot to do with it. Project manager or not, I hope you enjoyed this special edition of The Everyday PM Podcast celebrating AAPI Heritage month. Until next time... Mabuhay!

In this episode we are joined by Arturo Zoffmann Rodriguez of Universidade Nova de Lisboa in Portugal. Arturo's work focuses on the transnational and comparative history of revolutions and radical ideas, with special focus on Russia and the Hispanic world. Our discussion focuses on Arturo's studies on the impact of the Russian revolution of 1917 on anarchist movements around the world, with a particular emphasis on the CNT in Spain, which can be found in the publications Revolutionary Russia and the European History Quarterly. A more comprehensive bibliography of Arturo's work can be found here: https://fcsh-pt.academia.edu/ArturoZoffmannRodriguez This was a fascinating and lively chat with an exciting young scholar, which we both thoroughly enjoyed. Arturo is currently transforming his PhD thesis, which centres on the subjects we cover in this episode, into a book and we look forward to seeing this come out in the near future. ---------------------------------------------------------------- You can keep in touch with the podcast via email: abcwithdannyandjim@gmail.com, and Facebook, Twitter and Instragram, all @abcdannyandjim.

CBS Eye on the World with John Batchelor CBS Audio Network @Batchelorshow 8/8  The Indispensables: The Diverse Soldier-Mariners Who Shaped the Country, Formed the Navy, and Rowed Washington Across the Delaware, by Patrick K. O'Donnell  @combathistorian An important new chronicle of the American Revolution heralding the heroism of the men from Marblehead, Massachusetts On the stormy night of August 29, 1776, the Continental Army faced capture or annihilation by the British after losing the Battle of Brooklyn. The fate of the American Revolution rested upon the shoulders of the soldier-mariners from Marblehead, Massachusetts.  In the annals of the Revolution, no group played a more consequential role than the Marbleheaders. They repeatedly altered the course of events, and their story shines new light on our understanding of that period. Nearly a decade before the war started, and in the midst of a raging virus that divided the town politically, Marbleheaders had spearheaded the break with Britain and shaped the nascent United States by playing a crucial role governing, building alliances, seizing British ships, forging critical supply lines, and establishing the origins of the US Navy. The Marblehead Regiment, led by John Glover, became truly indispensable. They battled at Lexington and on Bunker Hill and formed the elite Guard that protected George Washington. Then, at the most crucial time in the war, the special operations–like regiment, against all odds, conveyed 2,400 of Washington's men across the ice-filled Delaware River on Christmas night 1776, delivering a momentum-shifting surprise attack on Trenton White, Black, Hispanic, and Native American, this uniquely diverse group of soldiers set an inclusive standard of unity the US Army would not reach again for more than 170 years. The Indispensables is a vital addition to the literature of the American Revolution.
