7:36 am
that's -- we're putting a lot of focus on that. i know this morning we're talking about some of the suppression efforts and adding police officers, gang detectives and enhanced prosecutions, but really our focus will always remain trying to prevent these kids from joining gangs in the first place. >> i think the reason that we are actually having the presentation today where we're signing the mlu, this is a balanced approach to addressing gangs on multiple levels. i agree 100 purse with tom. i think we've always been in union any son in terms of how we think this thing should be addressed, and again, we've been work wig our school people. superintendent of schools is going to be there. this is part of an on-going conversation. we're signing updated mlu involved for many, many years with our public schools trying to engage kids to prevent them from joining gangs but we want to renew our efforts and we're going to be announcing a couple of new strategies specifically between my office and the schools today at our press

8:32 am
marriage, you will live a long, healthy life, if it's bad, you will die young. so that was his opinion. the bottom line, though, is, that in this study they found that it was the ups and downs in a relationship that led to decreased health especially in men. so if you're in a cons constantd relationship surprisingly your body kind of gets used to it and you say well i'm in bad relationship. it's not as bad as if you're in a good relationship and it goes through a bad time. so the key is to really keep that work the marriage steve you listening to me work it, man. you got to work it. so that that marriage stays healthy. i'm going write a book some day called hot monogamy and that's what you do to keep it going for a long period of time. like lifetime. >> it makes sense. >> this is a theme a
