[ gasps ] you're getting data. pony-sized data? no. u.s. cellular sized data. good, strong data you can actually use because it works in the middle of anywhere. i'd like $100! you're getting $400 in promo cards! yes! switch to u.s. cellular and get 50% more data than verizon and at&t. plus $400 per line. see ya soon. jeb bush: leadership means you've got to be all in. it's not about yappin'. it's not about talking. it's about doing. i know how to do this because i was privileged to serve in florida for eight years. and we turned the systems upside down that weren't working. 1.3 million new jobs were created. we cut taxes every year. income rose in people's pockets. people were lifted out of poverty. children started to learn.

agriculture looks like it could be gaining a lot of jobs in the next couple years according to the farm service agency and there are more women than men graduating with agriculture related degrees. but women are still the minority in agriculture business and the group farmher is trying to help with that. in its event called grow, nearly 200 young women in ag joined together. it featured speakers like iowa ag secretary bill northey, lesly weber mcnitt the chief of staff of usda farm service agency, and lieutenant governor kim reynolds. it's trying to let young women connect, network, and learn about the future of working in agriculture. marji guyler alaniz is one of the founders of farmher, she says,
"giving them some solid footing as they go into that world where they still are a minority will only help them grow and and connect with each other and hopefully go on to do bigger and better things. when you have a network, that's what that does for you." farmher started as a photo project in 2013, taking photos of agriculture and including women. that quickly grew into an online community that is all over the country. guyler alaniz says, "what you think of, when you think of a farmer, i try to include women in that. because i think if the rest of the world understands women play an active and important role in production agriculture, in professional ag roles, that will go a long way towards helping them. so that's what we at farmher really do. we take pictures, anywhere and everywhere we can to help people understand and to see that we are in those active roles in agriculture." we put stories up every day just go to whotv.com click news then
