There are excellent performances from many including Akim Tamiroff as Joe Grandi, Marlene Dietrich as Tanya, and Dennis Weaver as the Night Manager. Enjoy!

An entrepreneur, author, public speaker, athlete, and philanthropist, David Richman uses the lessons learned in his life to enrich and inspire others. As a former sedentary, over-weight, smoker, David knew that he needed to focus not on what others wanted out of him, but on what he wanted out of life. With his first book, Winning in the Middle of the Pack, David discussed how to get more out of ourselves than ever imagined. Now, David shares the interconnected stories of others overcoming obstacles—specifically cancer—in his second book Cycle of Lives. Cycle of Lives was created as the result of many years of dedication to raising awareness and funds for cancer research and care. David first started to form the idea in 2007, after his sister was in the last few weeks of her battle with brain cancer. David made a commitment to his sister before her passing— he would run 24 hours and raise money to support the fight of others. Over the last 15 years, David completed several more events: 24-hour runs, an 87-mile run from Cancun to Tulum in the heat of a Mexican summer, a 104-mile run along the Pacific Coast Highway, long bike rides, and various other endurance events. Hundreds of people have supported and joined David in these events, and together, they have raised tens of thousands of dollars along the way for exceptional organizations like the American Cancer Society and Moffitt Cancer Center. In the spirit of continual support, David is donating the profits from book sales to the various cancer-related charities featured in Cycle of Lives.

Economic research has shown that among Americans, Latinos spend the most, but save and invest the least as demographic. Beatriz Acevedo has set out to change that. During the pandemic, she co-founded SUMA Wealth with the mission of helping close the Latino wealth gap via youth-focused, pop culture–inspired financial content and fintech tools. In this episode, Beatriz sits down with her friend, Alice Rodriguez, head of community impact at JPMorgan Chase & Co., to discuss the venture, her motivation, and her goals. Motivation from her border roots Beatriz describes herself as “a very proud border girl, an immigrant entrepreneur.” Born to parents who lived in San Diego but purposefully moved across the border for their daughter to be born a Mexican citizen, Beatriz describes her father as “the classic Latino man who came from absolutely nothing.” A proponent of hard work and education, he became an attorney and started a philanthropic foundation 30 years ago. “Every cent he made in his career, he put it back into the foundation for educational opportunities for our community,” she notes. Beatriz shared that her parents' work and philanthropic focus profoundly shaped her motivations. “I've always felt like I am one of those Latina outliers that was able to have opportunities from a young age,” she tells Alice. “It doesn't mean I didn't work hard for them, but we know in our community, there are so many deserving Latinos and Latinas that worked so hard and are still not given the opportunities, whether it's capital, whether it's boards, whether it's advancement on a job. So I want to spend as much time as I possibly can every day opening as many doors as I possibly can for my community.” Ethos of a brand Alice describes how the demographic discrepancies in the economic impact of the pandemic inspired her to move forward with SUMA Wealth. Alice was an established philanthropist and a leader in digital media and brings a focus on the Latino point of view to multiple mainstream entertainment platforms, but she recognized that Latinos were being hit the hardest by both health and economic measures during the pandemic. “We had the least amount of emergency savings [and] were not equipped for something like this to happen in our families,” she says. Beatriz knew she could help reverse that trend. Despite the fact that her background was in media, entertainment and marketing—not finance—she co-founded SUMA Wealth at the height of the pandemic. Knowing that younger Latinos are the fastest-growing demographic spurred Beatriz to focus SUMA on them. “These are U.S.-born kids who are English dominant, consume the content in English, but they're still untrustworthy of certain financial institutions because they just don't know, they want to learn more, and they want to have that trust,” she explains. “And I thought, now's a really incredible opportunity to build a brand and a community that really speaks to them in culture, more than in language.” Beatriz explains that with SUMA, her goal is to empower the Latino community by building trust around tools and services that are already available to them. Adding the in-culture media context ensured its success: In its first ten months, SUMA surpassed all of its growth metrics. Looking ahead One key message that Beatriz strives to share with the Latino community is that when it comes to improving your finances or financial literacy, it's never too early and it's never too late. “A big goal that we have at SUMA is to really empower our community with so many tools and services that are already available to them, but to have the trust,” she says. “And I think doing it through the youth, through the millennials, through the gen Z's and the families and the communities, is a really smart way to do it because they are the big influencers and an ROI through one of them is never one-to-one, it's always one-to-many. So I think that's how we need to think about really scaling this information into our community.” This month SUMA is launching a free financial check-up tool where people can track how they are doing on saving, paying off debt, investing, and other financial indicators. “I would love to see that growth in our community of feeling comfortable, not just being the biggest spenders,” she tells Alice. “I would love to change that data from the biggest spenders to the biggest savers and investors. I would feel incredibly satisfied with that as part of my legacy.”

Between 1865 and 1900, the population of Los Angeles grew from around 5,000 people to over 100,000. With population growth that explosive came the opportunity for vast riches to be made. In Imperial Metropolis: Los Angeles, Mexico, and the Borderlands of American Empire, 1865–1941 (UNC Press, 2019), Dr. Jessica Kim, an associate professor of history at the University of Southern California, traces that wealth southward, arguing that the growth of Los Angeles from a hamlet to the second largest city in the nation is rooted in imperialist acquisition of capital from Mexico. Kim builds on recent borderlands histories to show that not only did people regularly cross borders in the late 19th and early 20th century American West, but so too did wealth and capital. So great was the draining of Mexican wealth to fuel Los Angeles, that when the Mexican Revolution began in 1910, Americans, many of them Los Angelinos, owned over 1/3 of all Mexican land. That kind of wealth disparity was a feature, not a bug, of Los Angeles' position as a borderland metropolis and outpost of empire. Dr. Stephen R.

Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood was first settled by Irish and German immigrants who were soon supplanted by a large influx of Czech immigrants. They gave the neighborhood its name but it's known today for its Mexican and Mexican American population who first began moving in during the 50s and 60s. Pilsen continued to be a port of entry for decades and since then, many have fought to maintain the neighborhood's identity, culture, and its community. In this episode we answer several questions about Pilsen's history -- about the role murals have played in creating that sense of community, how the people rose up and came together to fight for a new high school, and how residents of Pilsen took a Chicago housing peculiarity and made it their own.
Assistant Professor of Gerontology Joseph Saenz joins Professor George Shannon to discuss his ongoing work on rural-urban differences in cognitive ability among older adults in Mexico, as well as whether certain personality factors make people resilient to the negative effects of early-life disadvantage. Quotes from this episode On the focus of his work I focus my research on looking at how it's socioeconomic disadvantage throughout the life course relates with cognitive ability and late life. I'm interested in education. I'm interested in income, wealth and the resources that we have available to us throughout our lives and how this relates with better cognitive functioning, as well as lower dementia risk and the population of older adults of Latino origin here at the United States and also older adults in Mexico. On demographics and differences between rural and urban populations in Mexico One of the things that's very important about the Mexican population is we've seen a lot of demographic changes over the past century. In addition to seeing rapid population aging with the share of the Mexican population aged 60 and over increasing rapidly. We've also seen a large urbanization process where people are going from rural areas to urban areas. For example, back in 1920, only about 70% of the Mexican population lived in rural areas, but by 2010, this had declined to only about 20%. So a lot of people have been going from rural areas to urban areas. And this is important because in Mexico we see a lot of differences of a lot of disparities between urban areas and rural areas. Rural areas tend to be disadvantaged in several ways. They tend to have lower access to education. There's fewer schools for people to go to. And the educational quality that people got, especially if you look at several decades ago was significantly lower quality than their urban counterparts. Also in rural areas, we tend to see higher rates of poverty and various measures of SES. And we also see that the rural population tends to have less access to healthcare. This as the gap between the rural and urban areas in terms of healthcare access has shrunk a little bit over the past couple of decades, but there's still a disparity there. And so when you bring up the idea of the life course and where people live throughout life, I think this is especially important in Mexico, where we saw that rural to urban population shift, that many people who are living in urban areas now were living in rural areas as children. On his research looking at where people live throughout their lives In this more nuanced approach, what we see is that the people that had the lowest exposure to urban areas throughout life, those who lived in rural areas in early and late life, ended up doing the worst cognitively. And those who are doing the best are the people that lived in urban areas in early life and urban areas that late-life... And what we also see is that compared to people that stayed in rural areas throughout their entire lives, those who went from a rural to an urban area, also show advantages. So what it looks like we're finding in our current studies is that both early life, urban-dwelling and late-life urban dwelling are related with better cognitive ability. And there is an advantage that comes from moving to an urban area throughout life. On the negative impacts of indoor air pollution And then the other reason that we could expect to see these differences between rural and urban areas is that in urban areas, we know that people have high exposure to air pollution from the outdoor environment. When we look at pictures, for instance, say in Mexico City, we see the smoggy skies and we see this high level of air pollution that people are breathing in urban areas. However, in rural areas in Mexico, a significant portion of the population relies on solid cooking fuels. So this could be wood and coal and Mexico is primarily coal if people are using solid fuels for cooking. And when people use these solid fuels for cooking, particularly inside the house, you can imagine how quickly the pollution builds up inside the home. So people in rural areas have greater exposure to air pollution inside the home from solid cooking fuels. And we know that that exposure to air pollution is associated with poor cognitive functioning. And in my own work, looking at the effects of indoor air pollution from solid cooking fuels, I find that people who cook with these solid cooking fuels tend to have lower cognitive functioning and also more rapid cognitive. On the potential to improve outcomes We've seen several large policy changes in Mexico in the past couple of decades that are aimed at improving access to healthcare and primarily in rural areas. And so improvement of access to healthcare, access to health insurance, and regularly seeing doctors are something that we could use to improve cognitive ability and cognitive outcomes of older adults in rural areas. And last on the topic of cooking fuels, we know that one of the challenges and one of the reasons that people in rural areas are more likely to use these solid fuels is because maybe there's not the infrastructure to bring clean cooking fuels such as gas and electricity to more remote rural areas. Policy changes aimed at improving infrastructure to bring clean cooking fuels to rural areas and to educate people on how to cook with clean cooking fuels could be something very important to bridging these disparities that we see across rural and urban Mexico. On the role of cognitive resilience and personality characteristics in overcoming the negative effects of early life disadvantage What cognitive resilience is looking at is one's ability to not show the negative effects of stress. So people who are cognitively resilient can experience stress but don't show effects on cognitive functioning. They look like they're doing okay, cognitively, even though they're experiencing high levels of stress. In my work related to personality, I look at how personality characteristics are related with one's cognitive resilience or one's ability to overcome the negative effects of early life disadvantage. Early life disadvantage, being a stressor that I'm considering. So the personality characteristics that I tend to look at include a locus of control, which is how strongly one feels that he or she has control over their lives. And people who have an internal locus of control tend to think that the things that happen to them are the results of their own work. That they're the results of their own choices. Whereas people who have an external locus of control tend to believe it's external influences that affect their life. And so they're the ones that tend to believe that maybe the bad things or good things that happened to them throughout life are the example are, are the result of luck or of chance. Now, the other personality characteristic that I look at is conscientiousness, which has one's tendency to plan, one's tendency to be goal-oriented and to delay gratification. And when we look at the locus of control and when we look at conscientiousness, both of these affect how people tend to cope with stressors. So in my work on personality, what I do is I look at how personality relates with one's ability to overcome those effects. And we see that having an internal locus of control and having a conscientious personality are both independently related with one's ability to overcome the effects of early life disadvantage. On the importance of midlife research We also see a lot of focus on early life, a lot of looking at early life SES, a lot of research looking at education and childhood, but I don't think we see nearly enough work looking at mid-life. I think there's a big gap in our understanding of the courses or the trajectories that people take throughout life. We don't see enough about midlife. So I think this is another area that I'd like to go into more in terms of looking at midlife. So what are the specific occupations that people worked? What are the levels of cognitive stimulation and those activities also looking at midlife, we could also look at people's marital histories when they got married, whether they were married multiple times. So I think there's a lot of information out there on midlife that could be very valuable in predicting where people are going to be 10, 20 or 30 years down the road.

The Biden administration announced on Wednesday that it will lift travel restrictions at Canadian and Mexican borders to tourists, shoppers and casual visitors who can show proof of vaccination. This will boost business on the Mexican side of the border, as people are free again to drive into Mexico from the US. And, the European Union pledged 1 billion euros in aid to Afghanistan on Tuesday, earmarked for humanitarian assistance and stabilization efforts for Afghanistan and its neighbors. Also, we speak to Nobel Prize-winning author Abdulrazak Gurnah about his commitment to telling migrants stories of injustice and cruelty. Gurnah says the ongoing trauma of colonialism and themes of exile and belonging continues to inform his literary work.

Sparky: Surviving Sex Magick is the literary memoir of a little girl warrior, who survived. Sparky's story shines the spotlight on crimes against American children that were sanctioned on a national scale by the United States government. At the age of six in 1955, she was sold by her parents to the Sex Magick cult run by the CIA under its illegal program of secret experimentation on mind control called Monarch. By the time she was ten, she'd been purposely split into multiple identities, each one associated with a different age and place as her family moved around the country to avoid Child Protective Services and the police. With each new identity, she forgot the last one. In Imperial Beach, California, a tough neighborhood of gangs and brothels abutting the Tijuana Sewer and the Mexican border, she discovered her own courage in the determined persona of a new character, Sparky MacGregor, a Scottish girl who stepped from the pages of an old book and chided her for being weak and afraid. When they touched hands, she exhaled the last vestiges of fear and defeat. She became a warrior who never surrendered. As she grew older, Sparky's memory faded as she was moved from one location to the next. At the age of seventeen, she escaped from a camp in Big Sur, and left childhood behind. She became a physician, raised a family and moved to Moscow where she founded and ran an underground railroad for child sex trafficking victims from the former USSR. Years later, she returned to Imperial Beach to speak at an international conference on border security. The memory of her lost childhood suddenly returned. It hung in the briny air of the wetlands that stretched south to Tijuana. It was there that she re-discovered Sparky. When they touched hands again, the fusion of past and present was like the purr of two engines meshed into synchrony. "Do you remember your promise to me?" Sparky asked. "You vowed to write our terrible story, making it beautiful." This is Sparky's story. 11 giorni fa #sparky: surviving sex magick
If you're a little obsessed with Mexican food, like me, then no matter where you are in the U.S. you've probably heard of Puesto. With 120 different tequilas, 100 different mezcals, and fresh ingredients in all their mouthwatering – and most importantly, authentic – food, there's little surprise that this family-run restaurant is now in nine locations. But how does one market and manage a multi-locational restaurant business while staying true to your roots and all the offerings of Mexico City? In this episode, I'm talking to Alex Adler, co-founder, and taquero for Puesto, who says that they may be a multi-location business, but they are definitely not a chain. He talks us through all aspects of the business, from its inception in the family kitchen to digital feedback, and their journey with finding a coherent operating system. We get the rundown on the Puesto marketing and social media strategies, as well as delving into why certain social media platforms work better for this type of business. Adler also shares, with humility and a lot of passion, the special innovations that kept customers (and those in the industry) a little more connected to normality during COVID and drew them loyally into the Puesto community. Lastly, Adler shares some hard-won advice on when to pivot, and the crucial factor that got them where they are today – know what you want as a guest, and always putting that at the center of the experience.

Dr. Beatriz Villarreal is the first Mexican student to receive a doctoral degree in education from the University of San Diego since, her arrival in the USA in 1984. She had always been interested in helping and working with Latino people that led to receiving an award from the Mexican consulate, San Diego, for leadership in helping the Latino Community back in 2012. Her assistance experience brought her to light that 70% of Latino children were in jail. After the impactful advisory program “Spectrum Program” of providing support and education to children in Juvenile Hall, she decided to start working on preventing the side through her project and started “Mano a Mano foundation”. This organization is a non-profit foundation with an experience of over 25 years to provide support and education to Latino families. They offer an array of conferences encompassing a variety of educational topics regarding healthy parenting and prevention of drug abuse not only to people in the USA but also to Latin American Countries.
On the 13th episode of the Bois & Bar Talk podcast, the Drink of the Week is Flexural Strength. We have a Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy drink on our hands, not something that we've ever heard of. Flexural Strength is made by Reverie Brewing Company out of Newtown, CT. Flexural Strength is a slightly hoppy ale, medium in color, and has an ABV of 7.7%. We found this beer tucked way in the back of our beer stash. While we never heard of this brewery before and any beers that they have, this was surprised us. It's complemented by peanut butter with a malty taste to it. Overall, we embraced this delightful surprise with a positive review because it's repeatably drinkable. Well done! How We Rated Flexural Strength Rob's Rating: 7.7/10 Kev's Rating: 8.7/10 We kick off the show reminding everyone to check out the website Boisandbartalk.com to check out all of our episode posts. We do show notes and ratings for every beer and every episode. Here's how the episode goes down with Flexural Strength. Rating People We're baffled how humans rate each other whether it's based on looks or personality. We score humans on a scale of 1 through 10. Your whole existence! Rated with this bare bones scale. Would you want to know what other people are rating you if you could? Throwback Segment! We went back to old-school "Would You Rather?" questions. It's been a while since we did this. Would you rather not eat fruit again? Or would you rather not eat meat ever again? Would you rather give up Chinese food? Or would you rather give up Mexican food? Movie Plot Idea As the Flexural Strength was flowing through us, we got even more creative. How about this for a movie plot? The main character could manipulate the dreams of others. Similar to Freddy in a way. But it's much more subtle for a super power. You can influence the decisions of others and control their dreams! This spun off into thinking about the subconscious and how you can condition it. Looking for More Beer? If you would like to support the show, take a look at our Patreon page. Also, with Patreon you can support us financially so we can at least break even on our expenses, expand faster, and keep exploring new drinks! Cheers!

Bess Dougherty has one of the best social media accounts in the beer space these days, mostly because it doesn't largely focus on beer. With her Carhartt overalls, she's been using the front pocket to hold snacks. From cookies and chips, to ice cream bars and tater tots, the snack pocket is a quirky escape from reality that celebrates between meal noshes. Bess has been brewing for a decade now, starting off at Wynkoop, the venerable Denver Brewery, before moving on to a head brewer position at the Grateful Gnome, and then landing amid the pandemic at Ratio Beerworks. There, she's part of a brewing team that regularly rotates jobs, it's not just days in the brewdeck or in the cellar, and she spoke to the show last week she had just finished keg washing and was sitting on the brewery's patio with a Mexican lager. Earlier this year the brewery took gold for the Golden/Blonde ale category at the Great American Beer Festival, a style that isn't often thought of these days but remains important to craft beer history and education. Coming off the high of a big win, Bess says she quickly had to fight back against the pervasive misogyny that exists in parts of the beer industry. She's been vocal and active in the fight to bring equality and better understanding to fellow professionals and consumers alike.
