Are Eggs the Cholesterol Enemy? Dr. Neal Barnard Explains
"Bernard thank you so very much for being here. My friend john great to be with you today. It's my pleasure and i know. Eggs have been a hot topic for us at the physicians committee for a long time. So i'm really glad that you and i are going to get the opportunity to clear up some confusion and so why don't we just go ahead and jump right in and answer the first question that we have from viewer. How much. Cholesterol is actually in an egg. A lot The eggs exerted the highest cholesterol food. That there is Roughly two hundred milligrams in a given egg now. The amount will vary Because people have been concerned about cholesterol and so with breeding techniques and different feeding techniques. You can manipulate the amount of cholesterol in a but it's never anything other than very high and that is because The chicken lays the egg and that aga- sitting there and the egg is not calling out room service or anything that the chick inside the egg has to make bones skin organs feathers and everything from what was laid On the day that that edit came out of the month and so that means there's a huge amount of cholesterol a lot of everything else so that when the Pops up you've got feathers and a beacon is and everything all together.

How Quickly Do Plants Photosynthesize?
"Said. She wanted to talk about this and she specifically was asking if we could discuss. Do plants start to photosynthesis as soon as sunlight hits them. And i'm like yeah sure we can vote why. Why do you want to discuss that particular aspect of photosynthesis ac- l. In this time of year. It always comes to my mind ellen because as you know i over winter plants in my garage and one of the plants that i over winter in the garage or parts of aga- panthers and they stay evergreen. They're you know they're kind of semi dormant but here they are in the garage. They're not anywhere near a window. But every time. I open the garage door on certain sunny days. Sunlight hits these plants. And i think to myself how i wonder if this two minutes or three minutes of sunlight is doing these plants and good. How long does it take for photosynthesis to get up and running. So that's what prompted the question. Well that's a great reason. Senior garage in winter packed full of plants and those aga- panthers and the fact is yes as soon as sunlight. Hits those leaves. Those plants are often running. I mean generally they say it takes about thirty seconds but apparently spinach spinach in five seconds has got enough sunlight to start the process. Plants are so amazing amazing. Yeah yeah i. I was astonished about that as well that the research shows that i was thinking five minutes and no no. We're talking seconds. Oh sunlight food okay. You can shut the door now. It's cold so that is a good thing because that that shows you that if you are overwintering a plant in a dark place and you know you want to open the door and let the sunlight hit it for fifteen minutes or so. It is doing some good. it is and this. It's a mild winter afternoon in march. We'll actually i guess that's technically spring. But if the temperatures allow go ahead and give your plants that little boost of sunlight they will be grateful for

Good morning. Morning morning, David Um I love your show. Thank you. Thank you. You You guys make me laugh every day. Thank you. Um and I was going to call in A couple months ago after the election does tell you guys that I got elected to my local city Council? Oh, congratulations. That's fantastic In my hometown of candy.

And again. Congratulations on your election. Yeah, thanks for getting thanks for getting involved in local politics. We actually have. Ah, we've got a lead. There's a lengthy piece from from that Walsh and thanks again, David for the phone call. There's a lengthy piece from Matt Walsh That came out last week from daily wire, and we actually have two of these. We have one from Isaac or over the weekend where he's talking Maura about modernizing the GOP when it when it comes to environmental issues and power. But Matt Walsh has this piece just ah, larger, sort of overarching piece about what's the way forward. You know, where do we go from here? Because so many people just felt so defeated. You know, in the wake of the stealing of the election and and one of the things that that points to the sort of the core idea is, we need to focus at the state and local level. I mean, that's where you could enact real change and That spreads from there, you know, so there there is a way out of this Meyer. You don't have to feel defeated as being a conservative. You just need to, you know, refocus your efforts and starts to the local level level with dudes like David. I know and people, people don't pay attention, the local politics people don't pay attention to, you know, county level politics and city level politics nearly as much as they should, and certainly not nearly as much as those politics pay attention to those people. You know, that's the stuff that impacts you want a day to day basis. That's the stuff that you really feel when your city council or your county board or, you know, whatever. That layer of government that is closest to you is when they start making bad decisions when they start making, you know, decisions that affect you. You notice it, And you notice it immediately. If you can't really say the same about the federal government, you know it trickles down. So getting involved in those levels is crucially important. And if you, you know We talk a lot about controlling the your your own personal sphere of its movements and and really trying to stay focused on the on the on the areas where you can have some sort of impact in new areas where you can make some sort of tangible change, And that's exactly what David's doing. So congratulations. So, um, we'll get to the follow up on the normalization of everybody on the left Right here here In just a moment. We'll talk about 100, Biden's bagel run and Minnesota Mitten Lady. First off, though I got kind of excited after Friday over the possibility of Trump being being impeached, just based off of the language coming from some House members.

If they believe Donald, John Donald John Trump. Incited the erection insurrection against the United States. Freudian slip something very right. I hope they reach a not guilty conclusion, because if they don't there's I have a lot more questions coming out of that if they find him guilty of inciting the erection. Uh oh. A lot of questions. Hey, the joke filter Caught one. Just now. Holy cow. Um, the video for it is spectacular. Because you could see humor recognizes the mistake before he makes a correction. He does just like kinda.

Which which is I think it's nothing special is just really natural and strong and kind of true genuine colors, but it's actually quite hard to achieve a like what some people think it doesn't quite come out like this from the camera. I think in terms of like the kind of contact photo, I believe my style is quite Dynamic and happy, you know, there'll be no mood and you know deep dark Aura on my photographs. It's usually quite a bit of money. I think that active I like yes, I like when there's a lot going on and and and and I love when there's a bit of humorous side to it and sort of and all of this Choice with the common denominator of a of the editing style that that's probably why you when you see my photo stream. Oh, it's mine. Yeah. Yeah, I think consistency is a big thing from you and I think you really focus on that. Right? Wow. Thank you. Remember talking to you once and you said like if a groom has a blue suit when you look at that Gallery afterwards that blue needs to be the same blue all the way through the gallery regardless of the light. That's right back. If you're a studio photographers, you're a commercial photographer. You set up your own light. You cannot control the scene with us being waiting for the professors. We kind of follow the events of the day and sometimes we can use Flash and and sort of create a little bit of light from from our side. But often the scene is already there for us. And the question is what we going to do with it. So yes, the suit can look Bluer can look dirty gray or a can look pink if it's a fluorescent pink off somewhere. So yes in my editing. I tried to kind of always bring it back to you too. How it actually looks to be yeah. I remember I guess is my favorite photographer in the World Cup * 8. Is that right times 8 times 9, is it mine mine. That was for nine. Why why is 9 a.m. As I said everything you've just mentioned is the colors the excitement happiness all captured consistently, which for me is like how I what what appeals to me KY find wedding photographers is amazing is consistency. Yeah. I think it's the hardest thing. It's the hardest thing and dinner. It's quite funny because when you're in the industry or even Europe like Vichy you shot was one or two weddings that you over three my goodness. You were based Pest Control fro. What's your guy's name that you can probably tell by now three weddings in the bag. You can tell who can't tell is the couple's right? Yes, so our clients and and people who are just like mildly interested in photography took these guys come tell what consistency even is and you know what it took me. Yes good several years by the time I realized how inconsistent my own galleries were dead. And obviously that that realization was followed by what am I going to do about it? And how am I going to make it consistent? And obviously then you you come to the to the point of do I want to sacrifice the time make it consistent or do I just accept that it's inconsistent and clients. Don't see it don't care and all it's all going to be fine. Yeah. So obviously I was one of the first group I I said to myself. Wow, this this can't be unprofessional and every single photo that gets delivered to my clients and not just the ones that I put on my website not just the ones that I you know, upload to Facebook or Instagram every single shot needs to be I need to be behind it. My brand needs to be behind it and my spot on editing needs to be there as well. Yeah, and that's that's that's that's tough to do because you end up yeah spending a very long time in like room and not everybody wants to talk. Yeah, and but that's your that's your that's my yeah. Absolutely. When I speak to a couple of before they booked me. I I tried trying to make it make it a point to them that that's the difference. That's the dog. The reason why they should book me obviously, I tried to send them full galleries as well to to make them realize because when you see a full second rolling in front of your eyes full set of eight hundred photos and they all off crystal clear and and beautiful with with spot-on colors. It kind of like hopefully right. Hopefully, I don't know. I've not been a mature for so long. I don't really know how non photographers see photos anymore, It's funny, isn't it? Because very we can't tell ya but people do many don't many their manager. But yeah, they're not going to book you either. They those jobs. Are you need 25 people? Who do I please pay? Yeah. Yeah. And yeah. Yeah, forget all the other wedding photographers photographers your friends your family just those 25 people. So all the matter, right? Exactly exactly that exactly I'm happy. Yeah, totally good with my eyes go to work my take on it. So I gotta what would a 20 jul. knurled agar agar today stop worrying That's what I would say to myself and I really would I I think I have a tendency to kind of over over think and and over worried and it gets better with age. So I'm thirty-six. How old am I I'm is you both. I love that how you ask yourself? I don't care anymore. I do. I do exactly the same thing Nikki what age am I I only know cuz I had forty cards same forty know when when you when you paid spot, you know, and then you forget she can expect a yeah. Yeah, but I don't I don't know about you guys, but I I actually really love getting older. It hasn't my life hasn't hit that point when I'm like looking back thinking off. My skin was so smooth. My body was so slim, you know, it's it's still like, you know, I really I really love the kind of change in personality that that happens when a dog Somebody grows up properly and I love that. I'm way more ballsy and I don't care about things that she really cared about. So looking back, you know, but all the things that I was worried and all the things that were stopping me from doing the things that I wanted to do. I would yeah, I would try to convince myself to kind of yes, stop overthinking and just just go for it. All speakers life is just yeah just one short exactly. That's that's fantastic. You have fun have fun. How about you done? What would you say? I can't remember when I was Twenty-One. They too long ago. I would have baked. She said stop drinking. I definitely like you think about twenty one year old self. Do you feel like you were somebody else hardly? I feel like it was somebody else. I don't even resonate with that person. I was Twenty-One. I thought I was a grown up and I thought I was wise and I thought I knew but no you sound like a bunch of old and he's here real have a Christmas song. It's true. It's true. I was busy playing rugby and getting drunk. I think if anyone and not caring about anything, yeah, just that that's one thing the amount of alcohol you could put away at.

"Of the back shop. And there was a pair of shoes just random guy's shoes just sat outside. So I had my camera was like what the hell was a shot? Yeah. Yeah. This is a shot. So I was taking a picture off a horse. This is just in the window and these two ladies come out from John Lewis moment. We ask what you doing is like sure I'm taking a picture of these horses with somebody run them shoes. They're like, oh my God, cuz they were the marketing designers for the for the shop window. So they just thought I was trying to you know promote there or I don't even know where they've robbed. I can take like you can get kind of into trouble with the police or some sort of, you know, security Steve and and things like that when you're doing streets. I must say it's it's it has crossed my mind and that you have to be in some way Brave to yourself kind of such all the waiting time you wait and wait and wait for a shop and you look like some sort of curved. So some more so than others. Yes. Yes. So so I know quite a few people have asked me about that. Obviously. What's the law in the UK. You can take pictures of anybody in the public place that's children, whatever like I you know you refrain away from that people can come pick them up to you and ask can you wage delete that and you could you could say no, but obviously if somebody asked me to delete something then yeah totally but not even a police officer can come up to you and tell you to delete that you would have to go to court and and dead. It can go either way. But if it's a private place then yes, you either need permission or it's it's a no, no, you know, so there are places like shopping centres which are a private so you yeah, you do have to be careful and obviously ask the question, you know, the thing that I stick by always in street photography is simple. Don't be a dick if people don't want their photograph taken don't take it if they want to delete it delete obsessive and you will get by no bother smile have a bit of craic. That's right. You'll get away with it. But anyways interior design. Yes, it's something you are clearly very into at the moment with a bit of a guilty pleasure. They're yes your account this house. We made Instagram really taking off his palm and you can clearly see you have a lot of passion there. Tell us a little bit more about that. Well, I used to be an architect before becoming a photographer and starting my own business and I think this kind of interesting Has obviously been there years and years ago. And you know, I I have a degree in in architecture and Urban Design and my Master's thesis was actually on like modern residential architecture. See it's obviously I was always interested in the sort of ways of living and economic ways of kind of organizing human humans life and this all gotten a little bit brushed under the carpet when I become a photographer and and started enjoying just the visual side of it the color and the composition and you know, cuz it's all really connected. The good thing about design is that if you if you're into one sort of thing, it's very very easy to to Branch out and and starts. Become a jewelry designer or you know, it's it's all kind of like when you understand visuals, it's it's I'd say very easy to to sort of take on something new and and that's what it was with me. You know, I I've become a photographer and I don't ever dream about going back to architecture. I'm not tempted. I'm absolutely never doing that. But the moment we we got the keys to to our first house. I obviously e Felt like it all kicked back in you know, so yes. I've been reading looking at stuff. I've been kind of following people in to be designers and Architects and all sorts of stylist and I I gotten back and maybe a bit carried away in a way that my house instead has got more followers than my working stuff because it feels pretty why because it feels like hobby. It's not work. I don't do it for money that I Didn't Do It full for promotion. I don't do it for kind of you know being patted on the back is just for our personal purpose. It's great to look back to his back and see. Oh actually this is what we've started off and that's where we are. Now, you know, like I take pleasure in kind of it's like a visual diary. Yeah exactly. You know, it's it's gotten me some recognition and tiger you've been very modest. Yeah, your house is next. Thursday will be the same. It's awesome. I tell you something incredible if I was your neighbor, I would be like, you've probably kick pretty much all of the wage. I'm saying that's true of the Arts in order to say listen Ange your fence clean your windows and put a few plans. I only talked over and I left the Press those. Oh good less terrible. I'm going to go back to my little Hut now it's you know, it's it feels so lovely to hear this because the house really isn't anything special. This is a first-ever property we've owned and and it was a granny pad that proper proper Granite accent. So to to kind of, you know, it's easy to do something amazing out of something already amazing. It's much harder to do something decent wage of something absolutely crap. Yeah, and that's the kind of the latter that we were dealing with so it's it is lovely and it's quite rewarding actually to hear people praise because yeah, you know, it's real old are listening. It really isn't anything special but it was much much worse before so amazing. Check it out. Check it out seen the before and after pictures you've done a fantastic job and said like there as well. Lighting definitely definitely so I guess hello your your wedding photographer? Yes, man. I've seen you in action. Yeah, I know it was fun wasn't it was good. I really love second shooting and having a second shooter. If I could I'd I'd only have a two people company and rather than you guys shoot together. Like yeah, we several times we work together and we we kind of sick and short for one another. So we we've been on on each other side. So so you've each been each other's boss. We have each been each other's boss. Okay. So we always argue age as being a boss and and alcohol is down being a boss. Terrible Saga. I have the worst headache I've ever had well where you have over phone? No I missed my morning coffee. You can say you were hung over there. My husband, you know, he was lying, but I think I missed my morning coffee cuz I don't travel down the car off. And I just thought I had it all day. Right so but I tried to put on a brave face cuz it was your whether whether you did put up with it. I I have no recollection of Dan being off from eyes as my favorite shoes in person. How many coffees a day do you drink them? Two sometimes three? Okay. I was going to say like that is once I know going cold turkey is a headache. Yeah, but two or three coffees you'll find yeah the adrenaline I think and and the kind of anticipation that kind of like what what's what's next. Where do I need to be? What do I need to do? Like I find a that is really exhausting. It's more it's more exhausting than like muscle pain and this kind of mindset and I think I think coffee helps coffee and like just staying stuff hydrated and and yeah sure high in calories. Yeah, totally agree. The first one I did was first all down raining mentally, but physically I had on the next day what-you-call-it Dom's what is it was a deep? What is it called annual Urena upon setting muscle soreness or something like that. It's just blinking. I don't know who invented the word is like almost pumps delayed onset muscle soreness. You.

"In the warmer the send the middle of winter we talking about just before they cut it melted it slid off the table. So I never seen that before the groom was absolute pieces job. Like rolling of laughter the bride stood there thinking well great. What we going to eat for dessert now it was so lovely about it. So down-to-earth. I've had the same actually the couple just thinking about a cat they just took the table and they both cracked up laughing as well even started eating it off the floor. I mean, I think they don't you you do not totally totally. Yeah, you're not going to cause a scene in the middle of getting area. Well pending it must be depends. What kind of person you are. I have seen scenes in the middle of of the wedding because something didn't go off right right sporadically by date. So there is obviously an array of people that we get to to work with some super laid-back and amazing about anything and just going with the flow and laughing, you know at the hiccups down. There is the type of client or like, you know, parent of a client who the moment something goes wrong. They they they get quite upset or yeah. Yeah. Sorry. I don't I don't have a job. Funny story but a friend of mine very good friend Helen Lisk check her out amazing amazing work. He stood with his shoe on the veil of a bride walking up the aisle. So after the wedding and almost like ripped her head back. It was absolutely, I can tell the story. She can only tell you the story. You could have a as a guest one day. That was one of the most mortifying stories I've ever had because can you just imagine she found herself in the wrong place and try to kind of catch up with the bride and groom, you know leaving the church and that's when that happened. So there's definitely nothing like this ever happened to them. Just you know, good to continue exactly exactly. So have you gone into a bit of Street as well? Like are you just doing when's have you been out on the streets with your camera doing specific Street work done that and I really want to it's on my bucket list. Well, yeah my bucket ever since I met you. I'm Dom and Liam from home. Workplace Studios and Ross as well. We yeah, I would they absolutely massively inspire me these people and I would love to do a video and one day I will yeah, I woke you say you don't pictures of street photography in your home your new beautiful magical amazing home. Yes. I must enjoy, you know looking at a street photography. It makes it makes me think you know, yeah, it makes me think and feel things and I just absolutely massively appreciated. I know how much hard work it is and I think I would be absolutely terrible at its which is why I really want to give it a go and you know, the reason why I haven't done Street yet is is because of how life panned out. I've bought a house and I've been submerged into like in a renovated and then starting and turning it into a home and that has kind of absorbed my attention. So my hubby has been covered by the interior design, but just before all of this kicked in I had this kind of yep. But books and I was going to go on a trip and and I will you know, I will get back to that get back to that kind of desire for for street photography because it's definitely there and it just needs the right kind of moment. Totally Mom. I would love to yeah, we we've already spoken altogether about this it will happen. Absolutely. We will do a trip together and we'll we'll get on the streets and have a bit of crack in a bit of banter on on the way home. Sounds great so cuz you guys so when was that was thinking about February 21st? Sure. Yeah, just just before all this kicked off. Really?

Of course have you guys bonded responded to that are going to say something else then. I haven't introduced him to the leather straps yet go easy. I guess please page. If we got a really back against the topic before the Watershed, it's edit edit it Mel. Juicy bit of the juice know but what what I was going to say was based on, you know, you're working your your eye for detail. Like you said you would suck at it you think you'd suck it up but I think the absolute opposition is no wait. No. Yeah. I I really think the absolute opposite because you've got the eye for it and you'll of colors as well, which is you know, Robert. I'm looking at like your street from the was the boss know supposed little Madrid or just your your previous work that you've done over the years. Yeah, it blows my mind. I don't know. I know that it requires sort of activating it another part of your brain to create that kind of work. And and this is what I mean by I probably suck because you know, I have never usually when you start something new you're not very good at it. So I fully accept that I would be a crawling calling little baby. Not true. I cannot prove streets with no sore throat will sort you. Okay, she willing to just like Dive Right into a fantastic. We're gonna put you on the front. Finally. You're going to be prepared to fail the right what I'm doing so hard my first street photography, you know, Allison is already talked about. Yeah, so he came to my mind was like, I want to start some street photography and he had a little Fuji. So we went home around Cheltenham, which I don't advise go into your local town to start off go away. You just like an absolute weirdo weirdo and that's how I started inside. Everybody's watching me. I know I'm going to page me and go watch the hell you doing it affects your brain, doesn't it? So we were in Poland actually on for a wedding as a guest and I thought I'd bring out the camera and do a bit of Street work wage and all my friends from Ireland were all coming into Poland for the wedding and I was there outside Louis Vuitton shop and they had all these colorful globes in the window at the time. This is Jim. I was trying to get the reflection of these colorful Globs aligned with the heads of people walking by and then I got these how long I'm going to let you know I had the d750 with me and I was doing I wasn't on single shot at that time. I was doing multiple shots. It was like a machine gun fire in a way and my mates came up behind me and were like, whoa, are you doing it's like an absolute mentions you can experience in do they don't know they don't understand the genre. They don't they don't understand all they could see was taking pictures of pictures of Louis Vuitton handbags. So, I don't know if you go to somewhere where nobody knows you totally no one can ever find you. Yeah, we're the biggest than Iraq signed and hide absolutely because you do look like a bit of a weird off to be fair. I bet I can imagine. Like I said, I've never tried but I can totally imagine the thing is nobody pays you attention normally so you can log Away with it. But as soon as somebody clocks you and they watch you for any length of time. You look like a weirdo had in Cheltenham just before the lockdown. It was the races. So John Lewis were advertising for Cheltenham races. So they had like Crystal Gold Horse all dressed up in the window.

Well, why didn't you bring the Fuji I did but I didn't take it out because as you mentioned it's you're you're in, you know, pretty quiet places and things. Yeah, my phone that is just easier to whip out and discreetly take pictures. I Didn't Do It much. She was just if I saw something cool was as I'm doing what I'm doing. I wouldn't purposely go out to take photos. I see what you mean. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I come back with about eight images of street photography on my phone now outside. I've posted a few on my on my Instagram. So you just don't follow media. Well I do but I'm just trying to stay away from social media. Yeah, I switched mine off for the last few days actually cuz it was I did you notice like yeah. Have you got Netflix? Yes, the social dilemma. Is it good job. It's absolutely fantastic. You means absolutely fantastic. Check it out. I'm not going to say anything about it. It says everything in the dock you there we go. It's it's Friday evening. Sorge's get it. So 8 and then yeah taking pictures with your phone is quite good cuz you use the volume control as the shutter shutter slash. It's very handy home. Yes it is it is. So yeah. I'm doing new and my phone started playing up lately just freezes. Yeah. I'm the same actually every time I kind of quickly off to take a picture the camera just freezes for some reason does yours do that other camera spy when I step out of my Wi-Fi to like four G It'll just everything will hold up for like 10 second delay just weird. So I don't know. I don't know they know of my contracts are probably in this ending up bug like I think Microsoft used to do cheese counters. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah after year they go. I'm going to slow down your computer for you by anyway, yeah. Yeah you you were doing what they were doing that but not with the saying that it's just to Aid in battery life on older devices and they were found out and then they don't do that anymore. It's not cool know. It's not cool. But I have to find in my lab there last week. I was automating controlling measurement equipment in the lab. So normally you need a Linux or a Windows machine for that sort of stuff. So as Irish language, but it just means I can control all of my measurement equipment in the lab from the laptop and from the Mac as well, which makes me even more special at the boot into a Windows or dead. Wow, you're so lucky you're married. So you've never have another girlfriend. Hey, very very very happy can imagine what's in the profile now dog likes to control measurement equipment with a Mac single for the rest of your day..
"aga" Discussed on The Wedding Street Podcast
"Welcome to waste rebroadcast illness and mostly chaos. Hey Danny Boy howdy how long it's been a long time since we spoken last weeks and weeks and months and months. Have you missed me like a hole in the head know I've missed you. Well, I should hope so. Yeah. Oh, yeah I missed you Robert. What's new? I've been away. I had a eleven day trip to school. And how was that incredible got very lucky with the weather only one day range. Yeah. The scenery was outstanding where exactly did you go on the way up? I actually popped to see David schools. Yeah. Yeah. I remember your Instagram. Yeah. So put another beer with him. I'd look at his office. And yeah, he's above this really really cool bar very dangerous crashed and that you wouldn't be having wage. Years. Did you manage to have one or two? I had one but I had to drive supposedly England isn't 5 and drive like Wales. It's it's not even one and drive. I think I think Scotland worse and zero tolerance zero I had one but I had a bit of food and I had an hour's walk around 12 then we stopped off in Lake Windermere off the Lake District. Okay. Yeah, but that's still in England. Yeah study in England, but very beautiful but very busy cuz the sun was okay and then on to Scotland Lochland very nice choice, and if the Glencoe beautiful one morning driving onto been nervous, I had to stop cuz the the lock the Mist coming off from the light was in saying you serious. Yeah, and you just say, all right. I need a bride and groom or or a couple that like just running in front of the road and stopped in traffic wage. Just drag people out. You know, you had the fabulous Hollywood. You don't know. Yeah, but that's just the one one person right? That's all right. I could have found her a guy a study guide or you could have done Double Exposure of the shift half a major to the left, but I wasn't looking good that time of morning know I don't have to spend about a week and Photoshop salt my cell phone off. So what amazing things did you learn about Scotland then people great scenery, but I I've been in New Zealand and equally on Parts say yeah. It's an amazing sport, isn't it? Yeah, if you come around call, you know every corner and it's just like wow. Wow. Wow, so obviously that I went the west west coast Highlands. Yeah walked up and nervous. Okay, which is a challenge but every five hours or took us 5 hours 40, I think that's not too bad for the wheel. It'll stop at the top and it has not only best friend or estimated. Yeah, what if they got at the top of the got a restaurant or something off? In snowdonia, they got a cafe, which I thought people were joking about but they really do okay, but not as well. But yeah, there's nothing at the top just a bit of old kind of ruins wrong. Okay. Yeah, that's the thing. I love the most about hiking here is the the the restaurant or the cafe at the top. Yeah can have the the beer once you arrive the sun gives you an impetus to get up there and she quickly as well. Yeah, no, cuz obviously it's the highest mountain in the UK. I think it's 1340 meters above sea level. Okay, which I know you see you then Everest Base Camp, which I think is 5000 meters right 5365. There we go. And I have two thousand the top of Everest. So yeah bit more than that. Yeah, we went up to six something I think in in the end. All right, awesome amazing. Cuz when I Googled after walking up there, I was just like oh, well, I just bought a little Hill it's very easy. Yeah, but now beautiful scenery. I want another good Twenty Mile Walk one day a really quiet place. The best thing about is Colin is one Road in two places and then one Rhode Island and you get these little pulling sections. Yeah, you're not going anywhere else. Yeah, and then you just come to the end of the end of the world the end of the road. But yeah, we walk twenty miles one day. It's local lady. We stayed in an Airbnb in a box, which is great. She told us about this Blackwater. I think it's black water Reservoir built in and early nineteen hundreds and you literally walk and walk and there's nothing on nobody four hours a couple of hours on end and you get quite close to the like obviously the built Reservoir wall Thursday crave Stones. So supposedly in 1905 all they are all these basically call them scallies from Ireland who were Misfits and authors. They probably got a little bit of trouble back on they've sent over there basically the bill the reservoir and they all day there that sounds very similar to Van diemen's land in Tasmania. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It was. And just like, you know, it's one of them moments you get then you just read in the gravestones and you just on the plaque and it's just like well like over a hundred years ago when there was one lady and then one gravestone which had no name. So yeah, I love a lot of these things make you make you think about life and just thinking yeah hundred over a hundred years ago. These people were year and they were they were raised here for life until they die and sane it is insane. It is yeah quite sure went on to after Glencoe applecross place to the Isle of Skye really good trip. Sounds great, man. That sounds great. Did you do you know what the national animal is of Scotland? The human is all right, the what the human the human know the national animal when an animal's the highland cow thought. Oh, it's the Unicorn come on. It's true. It's true understand either but you definitely saw a red head off. I saw a favor and had the highest proportion of redheads in the world Scotland and on the Highlander all redheads as well. That's true. Actually. Yeah see under there and see dead serious things are bred back in the day and date that those are all of my fun facts of Scotland for golf was invented in Scotland. You know that I know it's big in Scotland South in Saint Andrews, isn't it? Did you play around know I suppose a good walk for me golf to be honest. I really ever played golf nine holes a few times a month. Yeah, I actually thought I did I did I did actually from the sand bunker once stirred in the whole. Oh nice flowers my cynical. I've reached the top and then I retired at least one just played the what's it crazy golf? Yeah. I prefer that myself and Nick have a great laugh plane. That usually beats me. But yeah can't complain. Did you bring anything back from Scotland by the way? Sorry. Let me page. Did you bring me anything back from a read the ram I went to Dallas gai Suna talisker or tell you my favourite whisky, it's good. It's good to Fantastic on the 10 the 10 or the 12:00. 12:00 is the 12 is not yet cuz I tried 12 and I loved it and I thought I'd say the the 20 or the 30 will be nice and I tried it once in in a bar and I didn't like it. I didn't like it as much as the 12. I thought the 12 was fantastic job. Sometimes it can give it a bit more eat and a bit of a bit more.

Healing Properties of Blue Lace Agate
"And now, it's time for our main topic of the day the healing properties of Blue Lace Agate. And as you know I left start these healing properties episodes with an affirmation or message from the crystal. Here's the message that came through from Blue Lace Agate I surround myself with people that support my happiness and personal growth. I'M GONNA repeat that one this week because I think it's really important for many of us to hear. I surround myself with people that support my happiness and personal growth. And this doesn't just mean physically although of course, it can mean, physically it means who's in your circle who do you keep near you? Who Do you hold close to you? It's important that we have people in our circles that do support our happiness, our joy, our growth and transition and blue lace agate can help remind us to do this. The stone also promotes peace in calming and it stimulates the Throat Chakra encourages you to speak your truth. It's known for instilling joy and also for promoting forgiveness. Encourages healthy friendships and relationships, which is one of the reasons why it's so great for kind of cultivating this circle like a garden you WanNa fill your time and your space and energy with people that lift you up with people that bring you joy and do we all have those obligatory relationships that maybe we don't love. Sure. Okay. But this crystal can also help you set some important boundaries around those relationships in limit the amount of time to spend with people that bring you down. Blue Lace Agate also supports personal growth and enhances embassy additionally, it shared your emotional body from negative energy. If you do find yourself around one of those people in your circle that isn't necessarily your favorite and it can also help ground you if you're feeling really angry or frustrated. Now, this isn't to me that it just glosses over the anger frustration. These emotions are important for us to feel, but it does ground you when you're feeling this so that you don't let those emotions take control. This crystals great for helping to keep you centered and balanced in your mind body and spirit, and it also encourages truth in communication helping you speak your truth. Additionally Blue Lace Agate promotes acceptance of things that you can't change, and for this reason, it's really helpful with anxiety. So often stress anxiety can take over our minds with all the things that we don't have control over while Blue Lace Agate helps you accept those things so you can move on and spend your energy in a focused way on things that you do have some influence on. Blue Lace Agate also stimulates your will power and assist with emotional healing. It can also really help facilitate communication with animals with your guides and with your angels. Now if you've never seen blue lace agate, it's a beautiful crystal that's banded and swirled with Pale blue and white lacy patterns. It's connected to the fifth chocolate or throat. CHAKA. into the Zodiac sign of Pisces, it's related to the element of air and water and its companion flower is Jacob slatter its companion. Oil is white rose and a great companion stone for Blue Lace. Agate is pink cal site especially Pink Mangano cal site. Blue Lace Aga- is commonly found in Kenya in Namibia. Now Blue Lace Agate, as I said is swirled with these beautiful blue and white bands they're usually translucent if they can sometimes be opaque and this is a massive mineral meaning it doesn't have any visibly formed crystals is easily identified because of those layers of Pale cornflower blue alternating with layers of white or light blue.
Did This Secret Tournament Put Players in Danger?
"In July thirty, first the American. Gaming Network was supposed to host the AG call of duty, Indianapolis Land Event is being promoted as one of the biggest amateur caught events out there with a prize pool of seventy five hundred dollars to be clear. This tournament was not a part of Challengers League, which is the official semi Pro League of Kati Sports AG is a third party tournament organizers according to their website runs tournaments for call of duty Ballard and Rainbow Six. Siege now, as you can imagine what the world in the midst of a pandemic having a bunch of sweaty dudes, Patton to a convention hall is not the Best Look. So on July thirty first the day the tournament was supposed to start Aga decided to move the tournament on mine quote after discussions with representatives from activision, we are decided to change the Indianapolis to be online only for health and safety concerns players are advised to. Participate in the tournament from their home location along we apologize for any inconvenience in which this may bring upon players spectators in organizations. We look forward to working with activision for future events and quote this sentiment was repeated on August first by Jeffrey Elliott who according to a website is the CFO of the company, and well, that sounds like the obvious and smart thing to the tournament allegedly continued as land event later, that same day. Basically, what you just saw looks like that land event with a bunch of Sweaty dudes packed into a convention hall exactly what agents said they didn't want to happen on top of that. Another video surfaced that looks like a bunch of people packed new AIRBNB trying to continue playing the tournament online. Gauge cash a CO founder of. Who has a name that belongs in Mortal Kombat. Distance themselves from the event and said that the indy open was to be played online period but according to report from dexterity, there were allegedly agent employees at the event despite saying they had nothing to do with it. People were even alleging that Augean only put that original statement to hide from activision blizzard who are the publishers of duty. The fact that this land event was still taking place. Now, this whole situation caught the attention of dominating Jilin know who's the general manager for the Toronto Ultra a pro call of duty. Team competing in the call of duty league. She replied to a tweet with quote I reported everything to activision blizzard absolutely stupid and I can't believe that they thought they'd get away with it and be bold enough to posted about it and a former event organizer Adam epic. Kella even weighed in calling the situation a disaster I also reached out to cash Elliott and multiple sponsors associated with the tournament cash. told me that the narrative online is full of lies in isn't true but didn't explain why that's the case and Elliott just pointed to a statement that made after all of. This controversy popped off quote in order to preserve the competitive integrity of the online tournament, we have decided to postpone the second day of competition to next Sunday August ninth twenty twenty due to an overwhelming amount of players away from home with the inability to play in a safe environment we feel that this is the best way to ensure that everyone is competing safely and fairly the remainder of the tournament and quote also when I went back to gather more information on the indie open agent has deleted the page from their website now, even if players ignored AG and Cassius statements. that the tournament had been moved online and even if he had nothing to do with this secret land tournament, the question I have is, why did they wait until the day of the event to move it online? It's not like the pandemic caught everybody off guard both the League and the challengers. League moved all of their remaining tournaments online months ago. Why couldn't agm do the same and remember representative of activision reached out again, which according to their statement is why they decided to move the tournament online and that's pretty big red flag because to me what that says is that was fully prepared to host a pretty big land event in the middle of a pretty dangerous public health crisis, and the only reason they didn't is because activision wealth stepped in and told them not to because let's be honest when you plan to host a land event in the middle of a giant global health crisis, you were putting people in danger now, I have no idea. A is going to take disciplinary action against the players who did show up to this secret tournament. Also cash if you remember is a CO founder of Augean re tweeted somebody comparing the multiple worldwide human rights protests with these tournaments implying that if one is allowed to happen, these tournaments should also be allowed to happen and yeah I don't know if that's chief if Augean knowingly. Secret Land. Event, after saying it was going online that's fucked up and they put people in danger and if that's the case I, hope activision blizzard takes action against these guys.
Hashing It Out - Ava Labs Kevin and Stephen
"I'm a first differentiates itself with its consensus protocol. Which I know you've talked about a lot before Previous episodes of this but I'll I'll give a very brief overview of essentially. It's a highly scalable both in throughput and also the latency and the number of participants The can participate in consensus. So the first kind of main idea that that started album was the concert. Now since then we've also branched out into this idea of sub nets relate heterogeneous or a heterogeneous network. So that allows us to Kind of scale not just like on like consensus speed sides but also allows people to develop their own personalized Network so for example. We we are able to port the EDM so easily because we can essentially just have a wrapper around an existing EDM implementation and then use avalanche consensus with that and so we can court in two Gecko in relatively easy manner with how we structured sub nets and so that lets people not just You know have very fast infrastructure but also very flexible one so someone could implement their own. Virtual machine has an arbitrary business logic. That's specific to them and so Say so those are those are the two technical side And then I think Kevin can talk a lot more about like the business on how we're kind of it chained to to meet unique in that aspect but I think From the architecture side where we're kind of pushing towards like You know very very flexible infrastructure both on the consensus and the engine side for Kevin. Kevin I WANNA I wanNA trend reiterate something that's I think is incredibly important about The what office doing That is it's a it's a market distinction between consensus and the underlying data or mach- machine. Stay right most open networks right now those things are intrinsically married like like the consensus for lives state and the changes nate whereas Aga An it's different. Nation is consistent his own thing and then you can have other like a bunch of different machines rely on. That's exactly yeah that's basically exactly right. It's program ability not just at the application layer which is what other smart contract platforms delighted to already It's also program ability At layers below that the network stack wind data stacks which is an important property allows some interesting things that are very difficult from for for others One of the most important things that we want to make sure is that we build a smart contract platform that capitalizes on the value of the applications built on top This is something that for example doesn't do I can if I issue a let me let me call a low velocity a high longevity type of assets. Something like You know Real Estate Orlando something like that That on a theorem Looks no different than forgive nommik laser here but the any regular should coin It accumulates the same fees. It does not. It is not guaranteed to be different from any other Coined the does may be has no value whatsoever to it and we're trying to capitalize on this problem in a way that provides a that gives the issue of assets in creators smart contracts on our platform the ability to effectively divide the the the guarantees a little bit more at a higher. Gherardi or Logan. Larry Rather It's it's about you know giving somebody that is issuing these applications that or the asked us that have very high longevity needs and high security needs It gives them the ability to pay much much. Larger fees to be stored for very long period of time and be very secure. Burst something that. Maybe he's just not very high value and needs may be much higher speed and much lower fees so this is something that we allow. That theory doesn't quite allow and and is actually goes down to the to the token design as well so in fury on the the problem is it does not You know if I issue a new token Or if I build a ruler. Successful application of the theory Yeah fees are paid in East which is great but down to the minors and nobody else benefits from the fact that there is usage off of these Of this of this token on the system It's actually It's actually quite a big problem for theory. I mean you have so much value being built on a theory that bitcoin could never could ever dream off right now and none of it is really being capitalized at the value that it should be capitalized by the by the underlying token Our design has been more of the not the designer. We've taken is more of the the one that says. This is a cap supply token like bitcoin. And whenever you do operations that require things like creating new blockchain's and paying for transaction fees and so on they burn off the tokens and the burning Obama tokens alternately creates scarcity novel and so that capitalizes on the underlying On the underlying token of the of system. So that's an in a different designed from How a theory has done this But I mean this more foam I would say peripheral property The first goal that we want achieve is really in the ability to effectively labrum ability at the at the network data layer which is very very important because it allows a lot of flexibility on how you can design your your economics for your smart contract. It's like effectively. You know smart contract level charting almost if you want to think of it that way. Maybe that's not quite super correct. But it's the best knowledge that I can possibly come up with in one sentence and And that's just not the case for any other platform the whoops there okay So Steven you mentioned these subjects that have has right. How do those are? Would you compare those those akin to para chains or something like Sharpton East to a so with the St Louis? Model that you mentioned. How does that compare to something like East? Who which has the goal of being more stateless. Yes so I think the biggest difference the tweet our model and something more similar to their model is that offer us are. Our sub nets are heterogeneous which means that they aren't necessarily running these same The same the Amer the same the same Guess scheme if you're preparing database land So east to at least you know. Correct I'm wrong but Each to is planning on the chief being scale ability on the same kind of network with the same security guarantees in the same network guarantees across all of its shards. So what that means is that essentially. They're trying to paralyse computation and increase their throughput by adding nodes not need to validate the entire the entire state And so that's that's very useful in some cases however what's typically pretty difficult. When there's a lot of cross shark communication which on blockchain it then becomes very important of how you're you're splitting things into shards and so from from our point of view you know you're GonNa have something like you know the die chain or the Guy I G- CHARD. Where ever wants to be on the Diet Chart because everyone of us die and so all of a sudden anyone that isn't on the die charred is going to have to be communicating with the DIA- Chard Which is relatively expensive in most Charlotte Systems However with us Our viewpoint sub nets is that some nets are heterogeneous and so they may contain their own environment so for example B. Edm would live in its own sub met and would have surprise like Is a is Senate that were planning on doing which is a soon of Eutherian state. So so that's That's like the big difference really so we have something that's based off of the functionality. Rather than you know just splitting the entire state. So that's like the main
The Big Debate
"Hello Ladies and Gentlemen Welcome to the passing shot tennis caused by fans. My name's Joke Kelly. I'm Kim McKenzie and today on the big debate we're discussing the greatest players to never have won a singles Grand Slam title. Take your seats. Thank you everybody hype you while Hyppia Safe On. What would it be today? The very star of the French Open Garros Second Grand Slam off the season. Obviously we have no live at is to catch up on what main came have decided to do in. This episode is commemorated. The occasion by looking back at some of the best players to have never won a grand slam singles title. And it's nothing is fair to say it's quite Alexi List that we've we've captured and are few surprising. Names bad did about is the yeah. We've had a lot of suggestions for our listeners and followers say thank you very much for sharing your thoughts and we have had some niche suggestion straight in as well. I'm actually trying to think plays on these lists. Yeah A lot. More names came up that I was actually wanting to and I mean really one of the questions is where do you draw the line? How do you quantify like how many slam final how many titles players had to have one career ranking? They had to achieve to cut be considered good enough To have been capable of winning slam. Is it how close they came and in a final. Is it just what they did in terms of the rest of their career that you could kind of define it? Let's say we'll be looking into this more detail but yeah it's it's quite an impressive list of talent on this list and makes you realize actually how perhaps unjust sport can be when some of our favorite players never quite managed to go all the way exactly and as he said I could this list dominate at Alex. Verify think if that career they will at some point be able to kind of break that that grandson duck. We're going to start actually with a really popular answer. The calls one of one of the first thing that came into my head. It was one of the first that came into of our listeners. Had as well and that player is David Nalbandian. Who the me as one of those payers who do not doubt that he had the technical ability to win a Grand Slam. It was more. I think the injuries him. I think this is fiscal outlook or school. He was quite stocky and made. Now bandying was one of those players. Where yes he? He could be anyone on his day. He was let down by injuries. And the fact the his maneuverability around the court wasn't wasn't the greatest. Yeah I would agree. I think now found him probably gave into the list of being too injury. Prone to to capture title assertively. He was around before the dominance of of the big three m federal was kind of coming to the scene of course but Sam either he was before when the era of Jovic in middle kind of say dominating everything when you look back at what he actually achieved. It's very impressive. Though he was the the only Argentinian in history to reach semifinals Al Slams and even just reached semi-finals and more at all is is a feat in itself and oversee most famous he reached the Wimbledon final thousand. T- leasings Lleyton Hewitt which you okay. This was his best opportunity to witness lamb. However I think in this final you look at the score line and it was so comprehensive. He think if he wasn't capable of kind of doing more on the day at such a kind of big opportunity. I know this question marks around kind of whether he really sees the moment because slates near be like six one six three six two very straightforward line and this was the tournament. Schley going back to this two thousand Buddha. The top seventeen seeds were knocked out before the fourth round. It was only Asian. You and Tim Henman. It will get onto later. That actually came through so you think ooh found in. I don't know I guess maybe even getting to the final was a bit of a stroke of luck giving given that he was Didn't he wasn't having to play top top names to get that far. Sipa houses move reflection of that but yes that very consistent across the Sam's reaching the semi of old of them and the fact that he he was able to be the big three as well. I mean we talked about it in a in a recent Poe cost about the fact that he. He's the only player to beat in the Big Three in one tournament. In in Madrid. I think he'd be Federa Djokovic and the Dow so he was able to kind of know only just do it on one occasion. He was able to come string great consistency across. You know what you would need at a grand slam across. Two weeks is just yeah. You almost fell the loss hurdle as he said. He got to the semi finals of L. Better every Grand Slam and I think it's just a bit of a shame that he got so far but doesn't really have a lot to show for it in terms of in terms of actual titles and that two thousand eighteen. Would you look at the George? Dd that kind of that was potentially could have been his. May I know kind of you know? He's up against the world number one. The Best Player Lleyton Hewitt. But certainly you know how to kind of solve easiest drawer to get to the final to go out. So comprehensively was almost shabelle on his part.
Stimulating Simulator Stories
"Never had the three of us. Sit Down and nerd out about about flight simulation. Yeah I mean. It's one of the things that I think is a gateway drug for a lot of people I mean when you're a kid with a computer and You know you're looking for some gaming or some you know something cool to do. I mean flight Sims I think are are I think are as much a part of getting you know. Young people into Navy model airplanes were and still are. Yeah I I agree and you guys of no my My background priority. I spent eleven years at Microsoft working on the flight simulator series there subsequently got some weird biases and things but I was also been a lifelong user of Sims first. Ibm either came home. We bought the first First version one point. Oh flights them week that When that came out and I was. I was twelve going on thirteen when that happened. And here I am D- decades and decades later and I still enjoy them and it's It it's one of those things that it. It's not only refund from the aviation side but it's also to me always been interesting from the technology side to take these computers that we have on our desks in in our pockets and our briefcases and see what what they can do. Yeah I wouldn't ask you when you went to work at Microsoft was that Was that pretty cool? I mean going to work for a product that you Kinda knew already and had a you know certainly had a name for itself. I sent my wife An email and our into my first day because I've been at Microsoft a two or three years closer to four years actually for if I move to that team and I sent this email to her and it just said I am a pig. My job is slop never get there? That was back in ninety eight So got to work on some patches and supposedly stuff for flights to ninety eight then we rolled right into combat flights him in for the next several years. Sort of back and forth from combat. Flight Sim then back to the civilian one based on releases Worked as a test engineer which was really cool. It came from product support. Which meant you had to sit on the phone and try to help somebody solve a problem and then I switched to testing which just meant. You really didn't care about the solution. You just had to point out the problems and I'm good at that. I'm really judgmental. I'm picky but it can be a real jerk so So that was that was fantastic and worked from. He said the tail end of flights in ninety eight all the way through the last of FSX and a what we call DSP. What you now know is prepared by Lockheed Martin so yeah Great Times Yeah I think When I was a kid my parents had I think it was an IBM forty six In the early nineties and I only game that was on. That computer was gosh. She could help me with this. How was probably F S for? It was still wire frame graphics and it had the airplane Creator in the in the Red Baron combat similar. Oh sure yeah. So the yeah. They're the red baron was That was there from the very very beginning. You know the wire frame stuff. F S Four. That had the airplane creator. Had WHAT WE CALL IT? Sort of flat shading it was sort wire frame. It could support up to like sixteen colors of Aga time too so just starting to transition into something that was Sort of optionally wire frame or you can have some solid colors into it. Yeah that so. I always wonder how much that actually played into. You know I think. All three of us You know we say as far back as we remember we were airplane parts and I mean how your origin stories pretty obvious you know growing up at an airport But I think for my for me that that may definitely be a big part of that. I remember getting My my first flights actually wasn't regular flights him. It was combat flight simulator. And it was like you in Europe. He was European theater. Okay so that was the first one. Just yes he. F S One. Yeah Oh man. That was awesome like I remember. We downloaded that or loaded onto the computer and then a couple of buddies over and like we literally played that until like two in the morning and Just you know you died. It's my turn but What was he was the two guys that were with me? They weren't diehard airplane nuts. They thought this was like totally cool. And nobody had seen anything. Quite like that So it was really kind of interesting way to get someone. Maybe not a history buff. Not a Warburg buff but suddenly you know they were kinda rattling stuff off like oh no man you gotta go with the P fifty one you know and I'm like how you know. How do you know what is it was kind of interesting? Well you know. I think it's you know it confirms what we have said at least in private conversations time and time again that simulators almost any kind like this can. They can teach you know they can. Inspire people didn't get people excited about it. But you know before long. You're you're actually learning

Is Duke Done? A Season of NCAA Basketball Surprises
"Myron. I think the last time we spoke. I was at Cameron Indoor Stadium asking You what you thought about Zion Williamson. That was the last time and now Zion's gone and things haven't been as good for college basketball since he left. Myron Medcalf is a senior college basketball reporter for ESPN. Men's college basketball has been having a pretty weird season. Can you explain to us sort of the state of things and why some of the usually omnipresent contenders your dukes your? Unc's Kentucky aren't even in the top five while it's a meeting in a year like this anybody who tells you that they know exactly what's going to happen in March. They're lying because there was no one no expert. That understands kind of what's happened so far. It's just been a wild year but I think you can look at some of the things that transpired Really at the start of the season. I think the James Wiseman suspension by the answer. Aa For twelve games after being ruled ineligible. You have a Memphis team that I think had a chance to be much better if he sticks around. Lamelo ball who if he follows the traditional track and goes to a UCLA USC that changes the spotlight on those programs as well But instead you have a lot of the blue blood teams that don't have the lottery level talent that they had a year ago. Duke is still a top ten level team but they don't have anyone close To a Zaylon you'd have a team like Gonzaga that had to lottery picks last year. They got some good players. Nothing like that so the the powerhouse teams are just really good team which has closed the gap so now a San Diego State with the Malachi Flint and against double team Malachi for three huge three by malachite lend. That's a really good team. Competing for number one see the Dayton with an ob top suddenly was one of the best teams in America. And I think it's because you just don't have the same concentration of talent we're accustomed to seeing with your Kentucky's in Dukes. Then you'RE K. Use Marin what is it like covering a season like this where there are really clear favorites and no one seems to have any idea. What's going on this year? You just don't really know who to chase like. You don't know who to say okay. That's the team to watch. Because they're really good. It just feels like a pretty fragile college basketball scene which is great for the tournament for everything. We didn't have in college basketball this year in terms of no established kind of powerhouse team. I think we're going to see the benefits of it. Come into double A. Tournament. Time when we could have one of the craziest craziest. March madness is we've ever had so. Let's talk about Duke. Quit even when dukes not great? We're still going to talk about Dick. Because it's really interesting. Myron how much struggled on Saturday they lost to Virginia Virginia wins. That look the three point line. Just couldn't connect before that game. They were ranked seventh. But I imagine they could go down even further now right. Yeah I mean this is a team that I think will will fall in the rankings. Duke has run into some teams who put on their Superman capes in the last couple of games. And that's change things you have. Nc State which made sixty one percent of its threes and that loss A week ago wake forest mixed fifty four percent of its threes. These things those teams had done before they phase Duke and Virginia really as just a team on the rise So I think duke got caught in kind of a weird gauntlet there but trae Jones has been sort of their closer whereas a year ago you could go to RJ bear. You could go to Cam Reddish you could go on. And now they're a bit more one dimensional They're much closer to what you see. Maybe in a typical season where they're right there with Louisville and Florida state and Virginia and the other teams at the top of the ACC. But they don't have a guy who's GonNa carry them to the top of the League and just help them separate. That's just not enough talent in college basketball for really any team to do that. But especially in the league like the Agency. So you're in Kansas right now in Kansas. The number one team. You were there to watch them. Play Kansas State and it was a right because these two teams Fighting literally fighting back in January Shit and now the benches inc just unnecessary. That's not good. This is Paul. This is bad this is but on Saturday night myron. They shook hands before the tip off in. Kansas came away with the victory. What did you make of the number team in their performance? Well I I'm just glad nobody fought again because that that would have been bad Glad to have that moment before the game I will say. I've never been to a regular basketball game outside of the NCAA tournament that had as much security as that game. Had I mean they were everywhere about? I'm glad there was an incident. I I think Kansas is sort of the perfect team in a year like this. Do they have a lottery pick? No but they've got this really balanced group of guys who are pretty good offensively. They've been pretty efficient team and they got two guys who win they're together. They're hard to stop. It's Dotson In Gaza Buki who when they're on the floor together. Kansas made about sixty percent of his shots inside the art. Their opponents have made about forty one percent of their shots inside the three point line. That's the story right there when those two guys are together. Kansas is certainly the best team in America. But you also look at them and go. Are they one bad night from Abu? Koa from struggling. He was hurt part of the game on Saturday against the bad Kansas state team boss feeds it in bounced past as a group. Six to shoot you back down spits travels this is the shot ultimately but he rolled his ankle. Oh this is good has approved. He is clutching his right foot so Kansas is good. But like a lot of teams there. One bad moment badge stretch away from being right there with everybody else. Well now. It seems like Kansas is going to run away with the big twelve after Baylor who was ranked number two going into the weekend got upset by. Tcu How bad was this for Baylor? It's always interesting right. Like Baylor won every game but one for like two months straight and now all of a sudden last week I think a lot of people are panicking and that happens to a team. Like Baylor which doesn't have the brand recognition of Duke or Kentucky or a Kansas. So in hard times. I think we may be overemphasized Some of their struggles. I think you obviously don't want to continue losing and losing to a team like Tcu is not good For them but this is a team that again played a tissue team that did things that they haven't done in the past made forty five percent of the threes on Saturday against Baylor. They made thirty three percent of their shots from three point. Line before that so that can be more of an anomaly. I think Baylor overall though is one of the best defensive teams in America made the best defensive team not named Kansas. So that's GONNA keep them in every game that they play well one team. That's right up there with Kansas and Baylor is Gonzaga perennial contenders They did lose to. Byu about a week ago but they're still considered favorites to win the WCTC. How good is this Gonzaga team? I think they're really really good me now like I think they're amazing. I just think this is a year where because everyone has been sort of even you get one loss and all of a sudden. Gonzaga gets the whole. You haven't played anybody. And why are you losing you know in the West Coast Conference and I think that's unfair? Byu was a really good team like Byu's go into selection Sunday with maybe a five or six seed. Maybe even better so. There's nothing wrong with losing a road game in that environment to a good team. They have the number one offense in America a flea Petra. Sav is one of the best young players Indian tire country. We would know what mark few the head coach can do. And they've got two losses all year. I think that is one of the best teams in America and I think will prove it wants double a. Tournament starts so most of the rankings have some combination of Kansas Baylor in Gonzaga in the top. Three we'll see how this weekend changes that but after that myron gets pretty interesting. I'm you've got Dayton San Diego state. Did you see that coming up before the season began out like I wish I could lie and say I did? I wish I could be that dude. It was like yeah. I called San Diego State back in October in Dayton. But I didn't I mean like ob top and a Dayton is suddenly this lottery pig. And I don't think anybody saw that Common Dayton on Friday against Davidson Mia. Think about this number. They may ninety six percent of their shots inside the three point. Line Ninety six percent like I don't care if you're playing a high school junior Varsity Team. That's really difficult to do in Dayton. Did that and not only did they do it. They've been doing it Throughout the season just really inefficient offensive team in San Diego State. A team that lost its first game about a week and a half ago. The they've been role as well in their line of people who will say San Diego State doesn't play the competition that the other top teams have faced in college basketball. That's not true. They beat the. Byu Team that just beacons Aga- they beat Creighton. Which I think is the surprise of college basketball naked win at all by thirty one points and they beat Iowa another solid team another Aa tournament team by ten points so the best teams that were thrown at San Diego State. They won those games now. They did lose the UNLV Week ago but beyond that there have been a really really good team and I think in a year like this again. You're not going to run into a team with two lottery. Picks it feels like they can make Iran as well both San Diego state ending

Hey brain stuff lauren. Bogle bomb here when you adopt a puppy or an older dog. There's a lot to look forward to a fun. Days of playing with her and taking walks feeding her teaching her tricks taking walks cuddling on the couch with her and yes taking more walks. Dogs require walks. The obvious reason is that they have to go out to do their business meaning urinate and defecate. The frequency depends on the breed. But if you live in an apartment or a house without a fenced yard where they can roam freely to take care of the call of nature as the adult in the room you are responsible for taking them out to a designated area where they can go and you can clean up after them but there's more to it than that dogs need lots of exercise. They need to burn off energy and socialized dogs. Hello Dog Park. Walks are an important part of your dogs. Daily routine and that means you're pups leash is a crucial canine accessory. But there are a dizzying number of options. So we he talked to an expert about her favourite leash and why she recommends it Susie. Aga- is a nationally recognized dog trainer an expert in dog behavior modification and the founder of Atlanta dog trainer. She has decades of dog training experience and has clear preferences about leashes for starters. She never recommends a retractable leash. She explained they're very popular leashes but everyone hates them. It's irritating for the dogs on the leash. They've got constant tension on them and it's irritating for humans in the community most pet owners. Don't ruin their dogs. They just let them wrap up. Whoever's walking by retractable leashes are dangerous? Dogs and humans. How many times have you been strolling along in the park minding your business? When suddenly there's a Doberman Pinscher staring at you a good twenty to thirty feet or six to nine meters away from its owner also retractable? Leads can hurt you the dog Walker. Should you attempt to grab it in case of an emergency it could give you a rope. Burn and be leashes are infamous for snapping due to strain or mechanical mechanical failure and whipping back with high force toward the walkers body and face Aga- also doesn't recommend the slip lead which is basically a slipknot allowing knowing you to slip your dog's head through the loop and poll to tighten Think of those leashes you get at the vet but they can be very dangerous. She said I don't like them. Because it puts that's a lot of pressure on the dogs. Trachea can cause a lot of damage. Aga's leash recommendation is a basic six foot or approximately two meter braided leather leash with brass fittings the clips onto the dog's collar or harness. Whichever the dog wears when walking Aga- says six feet is plenty long for every breed of dog to get away to use the bathroom the only time she doesn't recommend the brass fittings is for small dogs because the brass can be too heavy for those smaller dogs try stainless steel or aluminum fittings fittings instead ag- explained a leather leashes last a really long time? I've got one leash. That's fifteen years old. Most leashes available in the market are made of reinforced. Nylon or cloth webbing some even have carbon-fiber with an into them others are made of nylon rope. Aga- says those are fine but to be prepared hard to keep buying them she said nylon leashes even the ones that are sturdy. webbing are fine but they don't last. As long as leather dogs can chew through them and then the owners
The Global Economy: US manufacturing survey shows worst reading in a decade and the WTO downgrades the trade volume
"We begin today with the aforementioned slice of the American economy manufacturer ing the Caveat here is that you can't can't tell the whole story of this economy from just one number of course but a report we got today about. US manufacturing is causing a little bit of Aga it comes to was from the Institute for Supply Management. It provides an index or whether the manufacturing is expanding or contracting from month to month. That's Sharyn o'halloran. She's professor of Political Economy at Columbia. The manufacturing index came out. This morning is pretty straight ahead. If it's above fifty fifty manufacturing is expanding below that it's shrinking what we've seen in this latest report is that the index spell below fifty forty seven point eight to be precise signifies. A worsening of manufacturing tring conditions in the in the United States that is manufacturing industries are facing a downturn. Today's number was in fact. The lowest is the index has been in more than ten years manufacturing is not the largest component of the economy is a significant component when there's a contraction in manufacturing other types of sectors will probably follow because it could be layoffs it could be different types of negative activities that are going to happen as a result of it so what is going on here. You know really indicates to me that what's driving. This is our lack of new export orders. That's Timothy Furey. SM He chairs the committee that puts out the survey in question this is more of I think it's more more of a trade throttling it's it's caused a lot of bottlenecks across the global environment not good for the manufacturing economy yeah not good for the manufacturing fracturing. Konami all spink trade bottlenecks and throttling of the global environment let us turn now to the WTO the World Trade Organization. Shall we twice a year the economists honest the WTO get together and go through their models in their crystal balls and tell the rest of us how much trade they're expecting in the next couple of years and you know where this is going right. Their latest I forecast out today shows a sharp drop in the growth of trade from where they were expecting just six months ago in April. Thinking was we'd see trade volumes grow two point six percent this year now just one point two percent its backdrop so we asked marketplace's. Tracey Samuelson to figure out what has changed in the past six months this forecast is downgrade from what the WTO was expecting in April and that was a downgrade from what it was expecting last September Coleman knee and economist in the research in statistics division at the WTO says we're already seeing slower trade growth show up in the data. What's happened is the trade growth in the first half of the year of Twenty nineteen was much listen we expected so we were forced to revise our forecast down pretty substantially. He says there is a number of reasons why there's slowing economic growth in major economies uh-huh and regions in Asia and Europe a bit in the US and that reduces demand for it for all kinds of goods including imports. It's lying. Economic growth doesn't totally explain the slowing growth in trade volumes. There's something else what could it be since April. The trade dispute has only escalated. Fan Vino is the US chief economist SNP Global. We've had the United States add more tariffs on now three hundred billion of Chinese products and still more tears to take effect in December. Eastward facade is a trade policy professor at Cornell has been a fundamentally evaluation about what the prospects for dissolving the retention. It's become clear that the US China trade tensions are here to stay so precise says businesses are reevaluating their supply chains and putting investment plans on hold which can ultimately mean less trade.

"aga" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio
"For AGA report on this they finally came out in February of this year and that is look at the terms and conditions which really is mostly secret but we have a situation where handpicked teachers come to United States come to Africa go go to Africa should say Latin America everywhere and they seemingly are doing education in the language and culture but it's all about the world view and it is the best the defense of of changing things policies. looting Hong Kong my question very specifically is what are the Confucius centers you have any insight as to what they're saying about what's going on in Hong Kong right now and those universities and colleges U. S. based that are in. China today what are they able to say and do without fear of retaliation like it then Y. you campuses Shanghai about this great human rights pro democracy effort on the part of all of you in Hong Kong. start off the thank you I I I think it's important also to note that the Confucius institutes in the push backs have also been led by really active wonderful activism by students for free to bet and the Tibetan community supported by the waiters and I think they've had some really good victories that show you really can push back and get the institutions to be more accountable and and reliable I think I think the the quick answer to what are they saying it's what can they say will always be under the guidelines right now under the the now the ideological campaign that's under way where every single party non member has to participate in political study that the line of the day what can be reported and she what what can be reported in the news everything will be determined from the top and you can if you say anything and as you know under the new regulations under the cyber security act for the news news is defined very broadly to include opinion it a commentary including blogging including so you can't say blog think anything except what the line comes down so when the line comes down in Hong Kong currently the line is it is the right it backed up by black hands led by the U. S. interfering in domestic in a fair and and violating China's sovereignty this is the same just not you you know we all hear over and over and they got to get a better story here but that's what they keep saying and so I think that is now the dominant what were what anyone can say because if you say anything against that for example you have a different idea not only violating the new news regulations you're also running the risk of the version incitement because that is defined as you know going against the party's views so I think that's why. why it is so important that the that the authoritarian system in the mainland must change it's got to change or I think it's still you know I think that Hong Kong people I know I've heard some of my my friends and colleagues say to the U. S. please save us I had to have another angle on that I think Hong Kong people will save ourselves I think Hong Kong people are going to do it what I think is necessary from the international community is please help make the human cost less because it's very clear and heartbreaking that the young people are ready to go to the mat and I think the key is as I think the US government and this commission is doing is to stand by so that the human costs can be mitigated a little bit how did the teachers in the confusion to get their marching orders so I this is like going inside of a black box but let me special yeah I am pretty sure that all the curricula are approved and review I'm pretty sure they don't exercise academic freedom and say here's a creative thing I can do about all gone you know I'm pretty sure that they're all approved curricula how do we know this because you will see nothing that they're about eighty nine you will know yeah there are two big holes in that history what's happening and all of the you'll you'll probably read about the diverse ethnic groups in China happy people and happy to Benton's happy Uighurs you know that you'll probably see that version of what is happening so I'm pretty sure the other thing is if D. does institutes are also monitors so if anyone says anything that actually challenges the dominant narrative I'm pretty sure that teacher will be in trouble and so I think it's pretty tightly controlled and the money is the what do you see the word the the the the basement to universities and I think not only just for the confusion cities they sometimes come along with other really good goods like an endowed chair like money for a chair like money for a program so I think there's this kind of collapse. because senator games left can I say something to him anyway. yes okay I'm so sorry but I really think it's important as somebody who loves Hong Kong and and personally and professionally and as a member of the the from the private sector I think we need to also remember that every single SO we stayed on enterprise has a party committee and now that requirement has extended to forint to companies with foreign investments and foreign companies I had a far a Canadian company asked me how could that be why it is making us establish a party committee I said you're not being targeted all the companies will have to have a party committee what is the party committee to review your personal review your management review your business decisions make sure everybody is ideologically sure a lot like that and do they hide this not a secret look at the annual reports of China telecom China mobile out they had pictures of the annual meeting of the party committee saying we did good the party committees happy with us this year we complied so I think. in companies going in there are listed SO ease I think apple daily reported over a hundred twenty that are are listed a hundred Chinese companies listed on the Hong Kong exchange they all have party committees within their management structure so I think we need to look at that when you're looking at these other actors. thank you senator well thank you very much I you've you've you've been very patient with him for two and a half hours on the last person that was so you have to bear with me just a little bit more but this is this this hearing is winding down for commission co chair Jim McGovern thank everybody for being here I mean I the everybody's testimony has been I think informative and is giving us a marching orders and I appreciate your responses to the to the questions and your senators and congressman Smith earlier on in the hearing reference to kind of the. the past actions by the US government response to human rights abuses in China and you we've got a look the other way or without more trade would do whatever you know more this would do or whatever and really things haven't got better things are continue to get worse and I think it's fair to say that for the most part the it is the you know the US government has been very good at kind of talking the talk you know when it comes to to bad we issue the obligatory statement that we respect the rights of the Tibetan people to practice their religion and we respect as well as the Dalai Lama but the repression continues and there's no consequence and I think part of what we're trying to do is change that you know just talk in and of itself doesn't. changing anything there needs to be a consequence and so we're trying to move legislation for that would impose a consequence and I think is very clear from everybody here that protect Hong Kong act in the Hong Kong human rights and democracy actor important items for us to pass in the house and Senate and I believe that I can probably give you an assurance that we will do that I mean it doesn't happen here overnight Serra Rubio talked about hearings are happening in the Senate we have assurances from the relevant committees in the house that they will move on this and I believe they will come to the house floor they will come to the Senate floor they will receive bi partisan support and so that will happen so we we we we get the message on that and that is and we will follow through us we have our assignments Mr Huang and ms ho and Mister John you I'm you've traveled along with some of your colleagues were behind you and I want to recognize them as well and traveled all of of of a long way at a very critical time in Hong Kong and you've come here to build international support for Hong Kong and I think it's important for the record for you to say you know why it is so important to that the international community in the United States support your efforts we why that is critical to the success and and what you were doing and I also would like to get everybody's response to this and that is here I have you know I have to be honestly I I have not I I've been somewhat disappointed in the current ministrations are ministrations response to what is happening in Hong Kong I think it should be much more forceful and I would appreciate your comments and advice that you would give the trump administration on what they what what's what they should be saying in when dealing with the Chinese government and we can begin. wait while we will meet with the doctor Garrett it's been going on with the store on..

"The job of a correspondent is sometimes loan, sim often morbid occasionally dreer and is Indonesia, correspondent David Lipson discovered, what on Simon recently, there's nothing worse after a long hot day than an entire city with no bien. He prepared this report from the disturbingly, dry city of cheer. Bon with apologies to slim dusty away from the fluffy seabreeze of Bali much of Indonesia, is, as they say, as hot as nine sons, it's also humid, and often grimy as a correspondent you spend a good deal of time in the thick of it whiting through that swampy area liking, tripods cameras, and backpacks through the smog or dust. It's great fun. But it's also hard going thankfully, there is a queue Bintan be it's watery easy. Drinking pills now. Not sure you drink it outside of Indonesia, but here it works the. The problem is it's getting hotter and hotter to get your hands on a I noticed it in Jakarta a year ago, the hero convenience store near home. It's fridges conveniently stocked with ample, and the ale was without warning. Emptied out on. We were told it was out of respect for the holy month of Ramadan, but the b never came back. Nothing so lonesome. Dreer then stand in about all the pub with no biz. More recently, we realized the same thing had happened at the brand new domestic terminal in Jakarta, just sugary drinks in the fridge. Is there on a particularly long layover a few weeks, back, cameramen Phil? And I slipped the entire length of the massive terminal before eventually finding a restaurant slash bar on the menu. There was no beer but we asked the waiter, who sent for the manager who told us in hushed tones. Yes. There is some available. We ordered two cans, and when they arrived, they were in disguise wrapped in toilet paper to hide their true identity. We drank them out of coffee, mugs. And when the Bill arrived, the be wasn't on it, they had to be paid for in cash with no paperwork. This is all another symptom of Indonesia's slide toward Islamic conservatism, in the same way that far right groups in astrology threaten boycotts of halal products. In Indonesia, the militant alter conservatives threaten companies who engage in deviant, practices, lack ceiling, be it has a chilling effect on sales and not in the good way. I started writing this report after a particularly hot and stinky assignment, far from home involving large piles of rotting fish guts in the Japanese port city of cheer. Bon a beer we hoped might go someway to washing down that dry fishy taste in the back of our, noses and throats, but alas during Ramadan, we weren't allowed to partake in the hotel bar undeterred. We figured surely in a port city of some two and a half million people, they'd be sailors Kane for a beer after five months at sea. So along with my trustee, thirsty, cameramen Phil. We had a quiet chat to the Bill boy and hailed a cab. Okay. So we're not taxi. We have just tried to go to what were short would be the. One spot way, we could have a beer and, and somebody's eight it's closed for this month. So trustee Texan driver is trying to find another place. He's tapping away as phone right now. SMS is yeah. Your friend group. It's a group surely with the power of what's up consolidating the combined knowledge of cheer bones entire taxi fleet. We couldn't file. Because sentece of All Saints fan restaurant, Kilda would try, so what's what? Case balcony, Bah. On the main Stroup going up a pool stick case. View caffeine county. Not doing fasting month. Okay. Okay. Another disappointment. Did that. With no. We was starting to lose hope. Smackers KFC. John, mole hula trappings of western society Pizza Hut. But be. Be Dana breakthrough on the group message. Skopje. Thanks. So. Yes. We're on. So we made a beeline on the road. And sure enough right in the corner of the back of an empty Cup AGA. It looks like a pug. Totally empty. We paid out cabbie hefty tip until two seats. Okay. So he's poured a long neck into a missile jug. We have two coffee cups city in front of us. And a bowl of ice. So we'll put the old is seen how coffee cups. The old. Nope. Jug. That's it tears us. We go. Home is worth. That. Oh. Nothing gets between a correspondent story David Lipson. They are trying to get a drink in cheer. Bonn in Java.

"And Sri Lanka following the terror bombing Sri Lanka the foundation for the defense of democracy, senior fellows, Bill Roggio, and Tom Joscelyn her here to characterize what we know so far about Sri Lanka, and the reports of ISIS links. Tom a very good evening to I'm following the reporting in the Wall Street Journal, these last hours at least one suicide bomber in the Easter attacks Sri Lanka trained with this Lomb state in Syria people with knowledge of the investigation said reflecting the extremist groups continued reach after the collapse of itself declared caliphate, can you confirm or where are we in the links between ISIS and the Sri Lanka murder bombing? Good evening to you. Tom good, even John, you know, when we spoke last week. We we were discussing the fact that there had been no claim responsibility by these state yet for the Easter Sunday bombings in the capital Colombo Ronca. And of course, was a massive wave of attach involving seven or eight suicide bombers in around the capital at three or four churches and a number of tells killing about two people and wounding hundreds of more, and of course, hours after we got off radio that night. There's Amish state started produced its claims responsibility, including shorter statements longer statements, and ultimately video and the video is very important because what it showed was that the wrong in suicide bombers the people carried out is attacking around. The capital swore allegiance to Abu Baker al-baghdadi have Islam extinct before they went through with terrorism before they tear stacks, and you can look at some stuff. We put up a long war journal that he's types of videos have been produced after a string of attacks throughout Europe. And elsewhere by these stay away. For them to underscore that. In fact, Baghdad his loyalists were responsible, and it shows, you know, type of detail you're talking about in the Wall Street Journal is sort of operational. Details were really looking into right now. Try and confirm sort of the concrete brick and mortar ties between the bombers and staying. We're seeing more details along those lines. But this video is at a minimum of digital type show. It was recorded and produced is a standard format state expects from its around the globe. They at least they knew how to get to video in the hands of as propaganda. So could be packaged and put out in the manner, which they're used to doing that. And so it was type of thing worse or underscored claim of responsibility. Now crawling on that John in days. There's was a separate security operation. Of course, the throng have been trying to sweep up any different cells or tied to network carried out these or Sunday bombings. And there was a separate shootout that occurred at at home and. Eastern city, Israel, AGA that in fact, these state claimed responsibility for that as well claimed that they killed seventeen members of security forces that description, tack appears to be false, what ends up happening was that two or two to four of the men who were in the home actually opened fire on police as they started surround the house, and then and then as we actually entered the home others, actually, kill themselves couldn't conducted suicide bombings they in so doing they killed women and children who are in the home. So it appears that somewhere between fifteen and seventeen people were killed in his operation targeting. These sort of Andy cells that were tied to the Sunday bombings and most of the victims. Our actually women children who were in the whole with the Jarvis is their own family members. They decided to blow up as in response to the security. Great Bill Roggio is traveling. He's away. He's in for a testimony in Washington before the house foreign affairs Middle East North Africa subcommittee. Eighty on terrorism. And we go from the apparent links working on these links between the Islamic state and the mass murder in Sri Lanka to video that suddenly appears of Abu Bakar al-baghdadi who is the progenitor of the threats of ISIS. These last years, and it's not been seen for many years. I think nearly five Bill a very good evening to I had not tracked the lay on the question of Baghdadi living or dad. This video is a surprise. Is there any is there any information in the video to date this Bill? Good evening to. Yeah. Well, I think this is definitely was one of these videos. Obviously was created a minor thing is there's two video segments one where Baghdadi talks about the state, you know, in the aftermath in the loss of Bob who's which was his last stronghold in Syria. Area, and he's talking to his other fighters then in another portion Tomek, obviously, correct me if I'm wrong about this. But in another portion he discusses attacks, including Sri Lanka. So he's mentioned that obviously was just what two week as tear-gas Easter Easter weekend. So within the last ten days, right? Yeah. Within the last ten days Steve is able to get back daddy in front of a camera produce it and then release it. So there's been a lot of reports of his death and wounding over the last several years, and everyone is speculating that he was dead or incapacitated in some way because we haven't seen him these stages chose not to show him. And they they the fact that they chose to show him. Now, I think these state is recognizing its losses. But it's also trying to you know, continue to rally its fighters and showing Baghdad he's a great way to show that while we may have lost territory. We are still in this fight our leader, our calluses is still alive and willing. To lead us. I'm stocked by these the still shot that you have long war journal. I urge everybody to go there and look at it Baghdadi is an older person with a unkempt beard, and he's dressed in vaguely guerrilla mufti. But there's that automatic weapon leaning on the wall Bill which reminds me of the photographs that bin Laden liked to have taken of himself. All those years, always an automatic weapon showing in some fashion aggression. Yeah, they like to portray themselves as being on the front lines as being one of the, you know, being one of the guys willing to to battle. But these you know, these displays these guys are not getting very close to the front lines. These days that is certain. So it's it's display of strength. Nearly it's a it's a symbol of status for them. A lot of times these are unique weapons that they like to put next to them. So it's you know, it certainly is interesting. It's very austere setting. He's sewn sitting, you know, talking to other Islamic state fighters and praising foreign fighters were killed including fighters from Europe. So, you know, it's kind of standard fare, but it is interesting because we haven't seen him for five years, Tom. I'm struck by the fact that we got these videos the one from about linking Sri Lanka to ISIS. And now the one from Baghdadi afterwards does amok new. Agency. Really usually is right on top of the story when there's a terror attack does this show that they're having difficulty with their work arounds or just a question of sloppy timing. You know, it's tough to say. I mean, we're we're used to them oftentimes producing claims responsibility pretty quickly. But you know, when I look back through history of their videos in the pass. It does take the day or two sometimes them to get out the sort of productions they get Lanka the same type of AB Elvis type statement. So it's really not back delayed when you look at the history of going back to twenty sixteen. I think is interesting about the Baghdadi video which is put out by L on media, which is the state's sort of central leadership media arm. This is a medium that goes all back to the Okada in Iraq days, this has been around for a long time. And so you can this is a institution is is propaganda for, you know, many years now, and they this video Baghdad in a way that was supposed to be sort of portray him in a little bit of a different light. You mentioned that he served sitting there, you know, with the gun up up against the back of tent or wherever sitting in Terni discusses serve current world events with his comrades are sitting around. This is part of the way we know that. This is a current video and fills right there to segments to the first video where he's sitting there discussing current events, and what is doing around the globe with his men. And in that context, he talks about stuff like Yahoo's, recent re election in Israel. We about the protests and sit down and Jerry up. And then there's a second segment at the end, which is an audio message was tacked on which is not part of your ritual video in which he discusses detachments along and other sort of events along those lines, and that that's how you Intel basically and that portion of this on production to get it out there. And what's interesting. There was some discussion after the strong because I just serve revenge. The Jihadist surveying for white supremacist stacking in Christchurch New Zealand, and it's interesting, you know, the way different working his I think said one of our previous shows John dot call for revenge for the the weights permits stack in in Christchurch. And in fact, went back daddy talks about the bombing and this production. It doesn't you mentioned the New Zealand attack either the massacre there the state is is that these attacks elsewhere, including a whole worldwide campaign, west Africa, Libya, Afghanistan, also we've seen in the last couple of weeks is in fact prevention their walls of territory in Syria. That's how they're framing train it. So it's interesting to see how they talk about their their terrorism and their violence versus how some of the storylines put out there about them. Tom Joscelyn and Bill Roggio are senior fellow at the foundation for the defense of democracy. They keep the long war journal all of these photographs and pictures and write ups for vailable women. Come back Bill is to testify the congress about North Africa as well as the Middle East. And so his report on Somalia will help us understand where the contest is with the elements of al-qaeda and ISIS. I understanding it a scorecard. These are separate organizations. I'm.

"Aga continue. Man, a legend a way of life. Suburban women want the wall. Which is buoying Trump after fleeing him in two thousand eighteen suburban women. This is according to Zoghbi analytics poll suburban women after fleeing Republicans in the midterm elections last November are coming back in droves to President Trump. The reason is that many suburban women want the border wall. And what is being called here? A remarkable news IBM Paul found that suburban women more than likely voters support the wall and Trump's emergency declaration that would allow him to spend more to build it. Then congress has okayed the president's numbers steadily gained among independence and voters. Without college degrees to groups that helped him win in two thousand sixteen another interesting area, where President Trump gain ground was Hispanics. African Americans both groups job approval rating of Trump increased the most in recent months. That is flat out amazing. And then, ladies and gentlemen. Incredible. New study Gallup two thousand eighteen tracking poll all fifty states asked respondents to self identify as either liberal conservative or moderate the aggregated results which were released after the program on Friday show that more respondents identified as liberal than as conservative in only six states. In only six state more people identify as liberal than conservative the states where the number of self identified liberal residents exceeded the number of conservatives were. There's one missing here. You're going to be shocked. A why New Hampshire? New york. Massachusetts, Vermont and Washington. Those six states are the only six states where more people identify as liberal than conservative. In California, which I'm sure many of you thought would be the leading state with more liberals. The liberal conservative gap in California conservatives and liberals both make up twenty nine percent of the population. You might be say how the hell can that be when there's no Republican party in California Republican party? It is a win diddly squat. What do you mean? Twenty nine percent conservative. That's that's quite an interesting thing to study. Liberals, outnumbered conservatives in only six states. And that's down from the last time. They did the survey was nine it's down the liberalism is trending down. You would never know it from watching drive by media. You would never know it from going to the movies. You would never know it reading Twitter, Facebook, everything in pop culture. You would never know it. I have been a tempting to tell everybody that liberalism is not the majority thinking in this country. It's not the majority voting Rozier just wrong about that through overtaken is role wipe out now, they're not. But if you think they are they may as well be that's the whole point. Suburban women coming back to Trump in droves and Gallup only six states and some of them are very small New Hampshire, Vermont only six states where liberals outnumber conservatives say feeling that that you and your family are safe in your home one hundred percent of the time. That's not too much to ask. I mean, it's. In many ways, it's an expectation. Now, the people at work, it's simply safe home security want it to become a reality for you. Not just an expectation or a hope simply safe takes great pride when they hear from people now benefiting from their security system. Once it's set up and working simply safe makes a very highly competent home security system that uses no wires. And that simple fact is why it's called simply safe when you take the wires out of this mess. You don't have a mess. You have something you can do you can install it. You can examine it you can repair it because it's just replacing sensors the sensors communicate with the base station at home via wifi. It's much easier to track when what I'm as bad. It's just it just simplifies everything, and it also means bad guys can't cut a bunch of wires enforce your system down. Once the system is installed you can activate twenty four seven monitoring. That means calling the cops or the fire department when there is a break in or some other kind of vent. That's only fourteen ninety nine a.
