"His br frontal core is not even complete yet he's the only. One more year one more year 'til his brain is finished so I guess you should wait till he is greatest finished growing I'm out for one year. And CUT THE CORD And listen for a lot of men. The idea of kids in men have two things, right so either of kids, it's like completely. Terrifying them or of Mary is complete find it at Ryan wanted the other if they have one of those right. So to your point, maybe wait a little bit longer. 'cause you know if that's the only thing that it's like, Hey, you know 'cause by the way you want to have kids right now like are you ready to have kids tomorrow? If you are then that's different story, but you know twenty five, right At, kids young. But I always not what kids really young. That was one thing I know. And I did get out of relationships because they didn't feel the same right. So you have to be honest with yourself. Are you ready to have kids right now and do you really love this man like head of a held that you can see you having a family with him any few do that maybe wait a little longer and then slowly you know what I mean tried to instigate that idea, you can have to be smart about it. And try to idea, and then I think that you do need to get to a point you know whether a year from now two years from now they go. Like is leaking I. Agree that we are. We will have a family not like we're going to have a family at this time at this be you're like, don't do that because that's crazy. That's cool house and you're gonNA drive everybody crazy cool. Be Cool. Cool. Cool. you know but if you. If you can agree to that that's good and just be patient. You guys record together you know in. I feel like if you really love this guy, wait it out a little bit you living together long ago. You building together super young but do give yourself enough time. They like you know what if we don't agree by this window of time I might start thinking about moving on right I love that you never give a man like an ultimatum. That's like. Are we having kids? Yes, sir no no. What are we? Are. We exclusive relationship. Our last question last question is feeling guilty and love she says I've been with my boyfriend for almost four years in the is a thousand percent my person however fitness and working out very important to me and while I know it's not fair. I want my boyfriend to be healthy to and prioritize his own health. Since we began dating he's gained almost forty pounds. He went from an entirely clean vegan diets eating fast food multiple times a week and never stepping foot. In a gym I, try to cook healthy meals, packing lunches and ask them to work out with me but he has zero interest every few months you'll say quote unquote starting over and getting things back on track but then he'll fall off the wagon two days in am I a terrible person for being turned off by his lack of motivation priority prioritization of his if I if I'm right to feel this way how to explain my feelings without looking like an asshole You know my best last week said that it's not you gotta it's not about because I'm trying to break up a diet coke again, sleeping heirs have been trying to quit diet coke. She says that you know it's this is more of a therapeutic thing because we don't think we deserve good food just letting everyone know that. Deserve. Thank wet I. Mean it's a long is fast food like what if that's good Now it's like what you were saying earlier like you you take care of your insights like once you start eating well and eating the good stuff. Then everything comes the beauty, the energy, the everything you know and when you're in like a depressed state or you're not feeling your best, you just feel yourself with more shit because you kind of feel shitty. All interconnected but. I don't know this really hard. Well, you if the tables were turned, you want him to be supporting you. Get is very true but you touched on something that it crossed my mind right away was it seems like something else is happening. Now to your point. That something else is happening any probably just need to figure out what the root of that is instead of focusing on the weight. Or. Him Not working out, it's focusing more of what's going on. That's causing him to do that. So maybe Shit I. Don't know how you're going to get to that because again, all you know him in a situation, the Iran but instead of focusing on Oh, he's overweight he's not exercising. He's not looking good. You know just like what is emotionally that's causing him. To what changed from back then to now? That may be causing that change on him. Physically right. So maybe focus on that and then another thing is if he really loves you. His going to spend time with you So, when you guys going for meals together and things together, she wants to have fast food guess what don't go with him Let's say no, I'm not going I'm going to go eight year are meeting that you want to have dinner with me. That's Welby. It can come meet me there. You know man come. Home you know to me or you know what makes his own? It's like you know no, it's no junk food in this area of the of the House don't buy this shit don't buy this stuff you know, and again besides the most important thing you should be worried too in his emotional something is underlining their probably probably..

"Out and then take I know out to. I also, I think maybe this is just into weird stuff like I. I think it's also figuring out like is he emotionally holding onto this or is he holding onto because he thinks the teeth or cool you Teeth mold though it's pretty cool. Pretty cool. Maybe he's into dentistry but Dan, this is what the line that you have to know because you have to remember something. We can ever raise our partners past just like you don't want yours erase right so if it is something like if he thinks that Mo- is cool any doesn't have an emotional attachment to or maybe he does have a little bit but it's not. A problem then leave to chief mode and just no, you know what this noise me but. This the annoys me, but you know what? It's not worth the problem. That's GONNA cause you. Yeah. So you have to wait. You're going to have to be smart about it. Far. About this. Wade out wait it out in this. Way this goes. Back, now, I was just 'cause they in. This is why you're still happily married. She's cool because you're cool. Yeah. 'cause you gotta be cool. You gotta be. Hard but he's armed. It is an takes our control. Her naturally? Cool it's no. I'm not. I'm not actual coney there guys I got to work on. We're all trying. Okay so you're. Outs the answer your last the last question was weighted out, and now this goes into the next question titled Wait it out or cut the cord. Yeah she said so I've been dating my boyfriend for almost five years now after two years of living with my parents, we finally got our own place. He super sweet and loves me so much. But every time I talked to him about the idea of kids he so unsure if you will ever want them, I've wanted a big family since I was very little and it's really the only thing that I've been so passionate about my whole life or both five and I know we have our whole lives ahead of us but I'm not willing to waste another ten years of my life for him to officially decide he doesn't want them I. Swear I would marry him otherwise what do I do? Do.

"So you ready to times. Let me try. We try drives you. Okay first question comes from Gabriele. She says about four months ago I moved in with my boyfriend into his apartment before me was a housemate and before that housemate he lived with his ex girlfriend in the same apartment, it's been three years since they broke up but I still tend to find things that are hers or once belonged to her. I recently noticed teeth molds in the guest bedroom and thought it was gross and when I asked my Boyfriend about them he answered their my ex girlfriends I thought it was cool. So I kept them he's into weird mental metal stuff like that I didn't know how to feel about it. So I just walked away and now that I'm going to find little things here and there because this was her apartment at one point but is this a big deal? Should I just deal with it I don't know how to feel am I going crazy. Weird. That's weird. So I don't think you're going crazy. Okay. Though I've had those situations to. And at one point you have, this'll be my opinion again I'm not trying to fix the situation because all you can fix it all you know giving you the fishing pole. Yep But this is what I think at a certain point you have to draw the line between. Okay. Does this bother me enough? To where I need to do a spring cleaning in this house takeout allowed. Hey. If that's the case, is that going to jeopardize my relationship? So I had situations where I had to Kinda mid in the middle. But I went you know what? I'm really not okay with this. So let me find a cool way of going about it because telling you a boyfriend hey, you know we need to get all your ex girlfriend stuff out. It's going to freak him out probably. So if he's keeping weird stuff like that so you. WanNa be traded and say, Hey, you know in the middle of the pandemic and you know what we have so much at home under spring cleaning to create more space for whatever make up some story life. and. Then you can take stuff out nauseous the ex girlfriend stuff out. Take a bunch of things.

"That I'm coming close. Talking. I do have a question though about like being on the carpet were you extremely intimidated when you like entered into the world of Hollywood and carpets, gossip magazines and tabloids like how how did you handle that? Because it was a time when it was really living in a fish tank like China over now but it's like back. Right in. Sarah. I. Feel like Instagram kind of hot, that bubble up. Lace it so much now we know you know that's a good question. I have a funny story about his first red carpet I ever did with math. And I was intimidated. Look you know. It's different. You know like we. Wouldn't by the time we did our first red carpet. We had already by the time it became public that we were dating. We had already been dating for awhile and were solid with you know what I mean. It was like we just cutting it out and it's all over the place like intended your clothes. An intended. So a great job of like cigarette I didn't even know how it happened. But honestly, like it counted state under APPs, you know what I mean we were. So we felt good about ourselves in way we weren't all that but. You know I come from I'm not an actress. You know what I mean yes I was albums Marlene and I was around at world a lot like my previous boyfriends were actors or musicians and stuff like that. Wasn't that world that world was not new to me. This was to a different. level. Because like we kind of new business areas and this is like this is going to be there and you'll normal like that we're going to build up to and I was the outsider coming in you know what I mean and we did see a lot of kind of elbows and you know who is who you know who do you think you are like you know what I mean walk in here like Boy You know what I mean who? Solo Solo Shot Matt. So Off By yourself and go yourself. It's from all the women in on the business and other things like that. So you definitely had some of that and I was a little bit simulator in the beginning and. Trying to figure out what did the right thing to do you do it? How do you go about this? It is intimidating because I feel like a lot of people at the aren't don't go to that. Sometimes they don't realize that this one thing right? One little thing people can grab it and run it like all the world. It's not like your local newspaper or you know or this happened for fifteen minutes is gone like it will have legs and it will go round the world like you know my parents like in Brazil people in all over the world. So. It's it's got a bigger effect and then when you have kids then he's like shit man like it something like goes about I don't want my kids to be here in this school whatever it is so. I'll tell you a line of allied or. That happened the carpenters first time that.

"Can't so invested to these people and I'm like episode five, there has to be at least fifteen more after this and they're like, well, it ended and now we don't know what happens to anybody and I can't. My heart cannot take that I hate to be a fridge magnet, but it's only at the end. If you say it's the end Oh. My God. You idiot that's not a fridge magnet saying. Fred Jamaica. Okay my bad week. So, I went to Temecula last weekend to go wine tasting because wineries are open it's nice and socially distant. You know the wineries are huge. Any other people and when I was looking on Yelp to decide which winery is GonNa go to going through the pictures for some of these places and on one of the pictures it just the caption it says open during the pandemic, and this is such an interesting sentenced to see now that gets me excited that I'm like five months ago. Could you imagine on a yell page seeing open during the pandemic? You'd be like. What the? So. This is a sad state. that. This makes me happy. and. That's my bad week, but it should make you happy that. You're able to do those things now. I anything that if I can drink outside is just all ended in life to just keep me going and fall into a spiral. So. But nobody there were mass. Did. That's my issue. Is that when I was in San Diego, we went out to dinner one night and I was like all right I'm going do it and like we wore masks, we sit down there like as separate them whatever. And then the assholes coming without the mass and you're ruining missed for everyone because they're going to have to re close now. So. Ask My the thing that happened to us. The winery was actually fine. But then we went to get dinner afterwards in downtown Temecula? Kind of like the party kind of area. It looked like King Mardi gras not a single person wearing math thousands of people hugging each other on like this is why this is never gonNA. Ever being down in Florida was interesting I. Mean I felt safe because everything we did was outside. Yeah but. It was so weird. It felt like it didn't exist I mean we there're people wearing masks in the grocery store and stuff. So that was good. But like I was like, do I move to Florida temporarily like because it was really It was really freeing. Excessive. You'd think it exists stripe and to be a fridge magnet but you are you feel and I felt like you. Now I'm still being very careful. I feel safe in the choices I'm making but I'm still with monks people who for the most part were not that concerned and so it made me feel not that concerned. Predict good. That's the problem. Literally the problem with. That is fridge magnet. You're a part of the problem..

"Had a chance to really talk about voice dot at funding before. and familiar nego very interesting. Take on it as well one of the ambassadors for the voice I movement in the funding world. Maybe kick off by just telling us a little bit more about Mangrove I gave the intro that but tell us. What kind of things did you get involved in the the clients in the deals? He'd be doing recently mortgage from that. So. We Peeing Stage Venture Fund. A. Little bit specialists that we have always two hundred million funds, but we have very concentrated portfolio, so we do around. Thirty investments, meaning sixty seventy dozens purpose. And we always believed meaning. We get in very early and we on active cheerleader if Pronounce. And we have data handled so review, so we're going down with the doper -tunities. Investment checks the. Half a million up to five ISH Huffman up to five million, so this is seed funding on it as a stage code precede as well, do you do both of those you say early stage you could clarify the difference between those and you guys lie on that. Yeah, we don't really kissel much work. At the moment being put on the rounds. TAME Long thirty percent. Meaning as a product out there, people. We don't cast much rather is the and do that? It descend bit more. Odious. Companies has revenues and the stage where. You. Go Raisin. Yeah right right excellent, and what part of your portfolio is comprised by voice technology companies in particular. You guys focus exclusively on that a new interest for you, so it's getting your interest I think we actually stop it looking at the space, the ALF. Ago. Since then we've done one investment in staged company called. See Better in Paris. Essentially pump needed to reinvent entertainment by beating rebate access to high-end. Brilliant way we can dig into that a little bit and a second in general. What's the feeling in the investment community? You guys one of the earliest thing you really leading the charge on this or the other firms that are now dipping their toe in the water, and and showing interest in voice so us both bedrooms looking at the space in year but say. If, it of all investments that have been done net probably. Three to four venture funds that are looking at the space, but we definitely say. Would I one getting excited about it? Nice there any particular characteristics that you look for then in voice tech companies. A wide range of different types of products that are being launched. People are trying different things. I've some patterns just from interviewing people on the PODCAST, so I'm sure you've noticed some some trends as well as the types of companies will the type of use cases that voices being applied to the tend to do better from attraction, point of view, or from evaluation, point of view while other typical kind of the cases, all the areas potentially industries that are most interesting to you right now. Footed that into that? It's space so initially why we got interested in it is because it's so consume ass, using voice, technology and data, so basically used, but engagement conversion rates were extremely. Good. Instead of this, tell me us. They're ready. Use this new in. An extra enjoying it and they communicate engages. More than if they have to use the keyboard to put in data, so that will finish. Starting point where we realized, is this voice? From that what we having at we have the platforms via the voicing visit lodge and the platforms notables assistance. Everybody's involved home the next size this. Specific Arab just for us. But we are more than at all. Kinds of flux is use voice to enhance US experience into his. Business that at the end of the day eighty percent of the directions be has. Can Be done by boys, so we take him to do that. It's vision. We share absolutely the keyboard. It feels so antiquated.

"You know at first believing of anyway in the series finale. ALF gets a call from his girlfriend. Rhonda and I don't remember what what Rhonda's with his. He had a buddy. Anna girlfriend, who were still like survived the explosion on Mailman And basically they said. Yeah, we! We have one chance to come get your. We're GONNA. Come. Get You tomorrow night. One of the weird things is. The parents are like so excited that Alpha's leaving. You'd think after a few seasons they have you know a fall in love with. Alpha made him part of the family while they tolerate him. They are very excited. particularly. The MOM is so site for right, not a lot of growth on the show. This the sun is not happy, and the daughter is lukewarm. I think they had some. They butted heads a few times, but she likes ultimately. So anyway, a spoiler alert for the series finale of Al they did not know would be the series finale. They thought it would come back fifth season, so it ends on to be continued, but Alf they drive out to like an abandoned parking lot outside La, and the spaceship starts coming down, and then the feds come. They roll up like ten cars deep. and Alf is is basically taken away as the series ends Oh my God, and it's to be continued. See figure. He's going to break out, but they never got to let us know so then six years later I think he does break out of. On Alpha, movie or whatever it's called. The expression innocent until proven. Where'd you get this stuff? soundboard. From this episode no from I did not build an Alpha soundboard the existing out soundboard. A WHO yes, so Alpha ends on a very dark note Alf. Yeah it starts with him crashing into the garage, like and and you know they sort of immediately. To him and they're fine. It's outfits like he speaks fluent English he's sort of like smart enough to know what's going on, but like his spelling is bad, you know he has a lot like malapropisms and like. Thinks thing you know is wrong about certain things, but he's ultimately pretty smart. I guess ultimately the ideas like he's likable so therefore. Nobody else has to be likable. Didn't want an oracle like some of the pop out and be more popular than the yeah I now i. feel like that Alf living your house would not be worst. Case scenario first off at can have a podcast that nobody would know what he looks like. You could just start his own podcast. Do his own. And Yeah. He's GonNa, probably eat you out of house and home. Sure that's the thing but overall you know he seems to. Get along good with the kids. One of the main one of the main themes I see from like my our reading the wikipedia pages for ALF is. He does like them out of House and home right lane he does. He does cost a lot of money because he eats so much because eight stomachs, and it's expensive like one episode he takes up a paper or it gets ten different paper routes to make some money, but like yeah, they do. They don't like the fact that like they. They use their whole college their daughters old golic. Golic fun just to feed out. That was a tension I also feel like that. Alf has like aspirations of breaking into the entertainment industry like this is like a Lotta. Pictures of Al holding a microphone I. See like a different like screw thumbnails of like different episodes with like Ed McMahon of like Alf, trying to get on the tonight, show or Alpha. Sort of like a late night. Talk show host so I think that was sort of like a head of his time with being like the amateur podcast here. Yeah, that's a good call. PODCAST would work for him I do think like he could have been an influence her if he just been able to post stuff, but like not say where he was. Could have been like like sort of an anonymous alien. He would have had a lot of a lot of fouls. Probably an instagram. Yeah Yeah. Real deadpan sense of humor. Alf also yeah Alf selling flat Tommy tee for eight different stomachs. A flat tovey no problem. Yeah so I was a little before his time. That's why I do think he. He should come back out alpha's ready for combat. I think they've tried to bring Alf. Tried and flopped right away. Don't know why I don't know if you need the guy who the voice i. don't know what his deal is if he's still with us, Abe's if isn't that the costume is bad. Is that like we'll? Solid. I think it's like. Good I think it's fine. Yeah, I, don't know Yeah I feel like that Alf. It's a it's a timeless story. the story of someone coming to this country trying to make make something happen. I gotta be away. Maybe we could figure it out as we go along here, but. It's also like I, had the show on, and I didn't even realize my sons had walked into the room and we're watching behind me and they were transfixed my 401k watch more very interested in what else was doing could not care less when the humans were on a screen. Oh No, yeah, but that's I think. The grownups felt that way, too. Yeah I think everybody but. Alpha is also involved in younger son. Brian has a school project. Also, that is working with him on. He is like a recital and ALF is working with him on rehearsing.

And say I accept that one lady that was not a fan when he was married to a man in third and fourth respectively are Elizabeth. Warren eighteen percent and Uncle Joe Man Sixteen sixteen percent for Joe Biden. The release of the partial count comes after heavy criticism of course of the vote counting process in the state that forced the Democrats to delay releasing using the results after the caucus. These results are based on sixty two percent of the votes from priests precincts in all the ninety nine states. It'll get easier Also I read that. There's lots of other states that are using this kind of technology like Nevada's next and three weeks like don't worry. We got under control because this APP was a disaster voting seems pretty rudimentary like it seems to this day and age. Figure this one out card in the slot My feeling with the more sort of I think in California you can vote like ten days or the election we also have stuff for like people go door to door and get your vote and bring it in for themselves and then. There's all the controversy about whether it's of oppression of colored people or whatever they're complaining about my feeling assists. Let's just go have a day. You fucking vote on that day or you. Don't vote on that day. It's it's on the calendar. It's almost coming. Do you think that should be a national holiday so awesome. It should be a national holiday or should be able to do a half day or there should be basically rule that says look. I've lived all over the place. I'm not particularly motivated. And there's always a place to vote. It's down at the church. It's down corner parts now that the school to whatever it's all kind of on the way and then people go. What about some of these people live in rural Mississippi and they only have a donkey? Okay the maybe they. They'll vote. We'll get by on it. And then and then they go well.

What to Expect from 'Lord of the Rings: Gollum'
"I totally forgotten that this Lord of the Rings Column Game had been announced early last year. Same Lord of the Rings. Ghalem a game where you play as column based on the books not the movies in a Prequel to Lord of the Rings The update this week. We've got some game playing some information about the game. This week is also confirmed for places and five and Xbox in twenty twenty one confirmed Nexgen Platform. So what are some of the details yet. Well let's see here We don't gone is GonNa look like obviously not gonNa look like Indie Circus's version of dumb. They mentioned in that early illustrations of gallon. where he's huge like shop thing much Fisher told edge edge magazine that Tolkien didn't have a size reference for them? To begin with so in the first illustrations he's gigantic like a monster. Emerging from the swamp cool token like revise is that. I'm sure I'm sure. Oh wait a minute what also is it up to Tolkien. Here's a big Gomez. Yeah he was a hobbit. Yeah we talking talking about in these early in these early illustrations. He hadn't determine that he was hobbit yet. Don so that's a good point but there's a whole like the weibring up for something like Star Wars is the whole story group that's helping to side with cannon and what's not but with Lord of the rings it's like anybody could just paint whatever they wanted. Yeah that's true that's true. Yeah yes bipedal. It'll creature out the window. I hope it's I hope it's a riddle generator. That's the game. Yeah you know what I hope. It's going to be a fishing in a fishing. I love fishing game. I'm sure there will be fishing moments. I hope how else how else you exactly. Luckily you love just fishing. If not fishing mini games you love the fishing games like bass master. Yes I was going to mention the Black Bass and the Blue Marlin brand. Yes this great. Those guys are great. Yeah we are. They can't can't tell if serious no love fishing. RPG's big fan. They have such a strong fishing. If if you go to different lakes and use a boat if so wait. I'm sorry if I missed this. Who is the developer of the data? Data Lick So. That's not warner brothers. No because Warner Brothers has the right to the movies. The move gains based on the movie shadow of war isn't n specifically they WANNA to move away. They are using they use. Peter Jackson's version of knowledge Okay all right we know that in ORCs look like ORCs in the as In this game so it's data look entertainment which they've made a bunch of games that I've never heard of he's like did you did you. We were talking about so they said there's decision making in this game which all games have like dialogue decision making on the Duma or not Damon Telltale game Telltale style game. And I think it's just going to be an action game with segments. I dated has made point and Click Adventures. I think that's kind of what they're known for. Click like you know if it's a Prequel who knows what it gone. We're going to get but he doesn't lend himself to like you know action need three world still sure it could be like like almost daily Stealth Ish game yeah. I don't think it's going to be like gallon. Like throttling a bunch of people and infiltrating base. But I think it'd be cool if you're like avoiding you know stuff stuff obstacles and then maybe exploration I mean he can he can basically move vertically on walls he it could be a climate uncharted mccollum. Gholam a good way to sir. John's like that's like a combination of climbing puzzles. Yes and throttling gum hiding all the triggers an internal final dialogue options Gome should absolutely be able to climb everything. That's what he does and fish. We blame as deep into his corruption by the one ring and he conveys a different set of emotion than those seen in the films because he needs to be more sympathetic and relatable because you're playing his his care changing the character to fit your interests. He's fairly senior Eh. Things that cute song sneakers. But he's a betrayer and Taylor's we can expect stealth Alf gameplay dual personality mechanic huge levels so that doesn't sound like one click adventure huge levels in a move away from the violence. The dominance other Lords utterings games lord of the rings plural is shadow lords of the ring. If this takes place between the Hobbit and Lord of the rings that's an era in which ghalem goes to more door gets captured word gets tortured gets captured again by Era Gorn when he set free goes to Merck quilt. You go into more detail this. This is interesting okay. So we're explained this to me yesterday. Yesterday you want me to go into more detail and year thirty thirteen We know that the bill meets Ghalem and yeah gets gets the ring from him. Yeah so then. At that point a gallon is like whoa. You Know He. He knows that there's a thing called the Shire and he knows what that there's half lanes and that WHO baggins begins right and we know that because in the very beginning of ordering seen the movies he's shouting that it'd be well being tortured and and more door and that's because he he leaves and he goes to try to figure out where his ring is and at some point he gets captured and taken and tortured. But then Sarah and says you probably try to trick us and they're not giving us all this information but you did give give us this great information that there's somebody in bags in the shower or whatever the show in the movie goes Shire back in. They all the black. Riders are repeating so then Then he uses gallon because they think like. Oh we'll just follow them and he'll lead us right to at some point in their duck alum talks to she. She blob probably and stuff like that. I don't know because then he has a relationship but she later you know where you can say like. Eat these hobbits and we'll make a deal. But then he goes to to to He gets captured by airborne and they want to interview him at that point because they know he had something to do with the ring again. That's trying to figure out what the one if it's the one ring or not but she doesn't realize for a long time he knows it's ring a power. There's there's eleven of them or whatever so that will happen again. Stopped me when I'm going too far Oh I'm just trying to give geographic sense of where gallon could go then. He goes to to be captured by the ELVES. And Merck would and there's a battle there's the There's a the sirens. Dark forces are like you know in Merck. Would at that time and all the stuff happening so there could be a battle sequence in this too but then gallon gets out and then somehow he meets up with the fellowship in under the misty mountains in the minds Maurier. So that means he's probably released for you. He's a ski escapes escapes in the turmoil or something from recruited and during that battle and then he comes across in his lost and maybe more effort longtime because he just comes upon them then and that's that's the point which he joins wins the hunt for the ring again. This is all happening before the game supposed to be set before all that stuff. Yes yes so. I think this would lead up to the point in which he's maybe in market or something like that add maybe it ends with him like finding the fellowship probably doesn't make sense Yeah I guess it would make sense. He's lost the ring so that's why he's on a quest to try and get. Yeah exactly I think that could be the motivation if it's before that if it's when he has the ring like it could be about him like losing the ring in the cave and just trying to find it because he lost and then before that which I don't think it would be it'd be him finding the ring being corrupt and kicked out of the village and all that stuff which they also seem to allude to the fact that like through these narrative decisions that you're making within the dialogue as you're single versus column that you can arrive at an ending that's more leaning towards one personality over the others that kind of gives an idea of what the story might be or at least what the ending room gone has technically a happy ending because he gets that rain and it's just yes second or two. Yeah well spoilers We my favorite part of that whole Lord dumped by the way. Is that in when you saw the hobbit movies which are terrible but they expand a lot on this in the books golic just disappear. Excuse me Gandalf just disappears from the book and then he comes back in like a hundred pages later is like Oh sorry I had to go take down this neck. Romance her in the forest and then he's just back in the book. It's not a part of the story story. It's never addressed again when you're a child reading this book. What what just happened like he kicks he kicks out of Merck? Would and it happens off off camera and the book it's insane. Yeah he like fleas. I think even showed that a little bit in the hobbit movies Dayton whole subplot in. But that's what they're talking about. Well so what's your impression of this Looking about the comments a lot of people were like why would I want to play his column in a game of any guarantee and Lord of the Rings would I want to be going. Well certainly sets you in like more of Steph environment airman. So that's cool. It's different than the shadow of war or more door games that we played. I think he's really interesting negatively. But it's the game play you know. I don't know there's there's a reason that those games are like sword and board. That's a very established format for making a successful fund. Video game now has been like a kind of a controversial addition to the Lord of the Rings Really Creepy. And I don't really you know it's really Peter. Jackson did a lot with that character to make it. I think more fleshed out an interesting resting than I ever thought of in the books and I think that's a really good thing so I'll do that. It'd be great also a credit to Andy Circus and you know my policy on elves. And everything. Only tolkien's allowed to use those. Yeah that's elves and hobbits especially if those are in other things come on how lame up with your own stuff. How lame are the ELVES pitcher? Yeah Oh my God. Nobody does not the half lanes man. They're they're in the game that's like nobody else can do hobbits but they cheat by having hassling. Yeah aw come up with your own fantasy stuff. I agree it's not as bad. I can't even talk about the witcher though because later episodes knows of other bad things anyway. Lord of the Rings Column Coming 2021. PS Five xbox series x alongside.
Chris Reining on Personal Finance Decisions & How to be Financially Free
"Get right to the post and start optimizing your life sir. I'm financially independent now. What by Chris Rining of Chris RINING DOT COM? Today's question comes. From David. He asks quote. I happened upon your site today and engaged in some Sunday morning. Binge reading very much enjoyed reading your articles and appreciate your efforts to help others and transform their lives in reading through the questions that have been posed to you. I noticed that most of the questions concern ways to save and invest of course amassing sufficient resources. Resources is a necessary. Step too early retirement but it doesn't address the harder at least me question of who wants to be nor of what one wants to accomplish in in retirement. I've been fortunate to have a successful career. As an attorney for the past sixteen years between a healthy income and a lifelong habit of saving. I can retire now at is still pretty. Youthful forty one. If I were to choose to do so while I enjoy the intellectual aspects of my job and the relationships that I have with many of my colleagues I find myself considering the same and thought that you mentioned that is there must be something more to life than doing this day. In and day out I would also enjoy reducing the stress and anxiety in my life that comes from my work. All of that said I'm not quite sure who I would be separate from my profession. My question for you is. What process did you go through to consider how you wanted to spend your life post employment point? I would imagine that it is a continuing process for you and others but I'm interested in how you approach the issue and quote like I always say early. Retirement has has nothing to do with doing nothing. It's about gaining control over your time. Time is your most valuable resource like mark. Cuban says quote. You can't buy it you can't find it you can't store it you can't trade it and quote and that's why people want to become financially independent. They realized that every day their life is getting shorter and wasting a single minute. Doing things they don't want to do is a waste of life. I was friends with an executive and he told me that he hated his job. And didn't WanNa keep doing what he was doing and then he said this. Is it it for me. Meaning he was going to keep doing what he hated for the rest of his life because he wasn't willing to give anything up which is typical for guys in their forties. They're working some high pay a high stress job thinking superficial things will make them happy measuring themselves against other people. I know because that's what I was doing. In my twenties I bought a BMW. A two hundred under thousand dollar CONDO and started flying smaller planes. If you never stop and think about any of this how you're living then you're destined to spend your life filling it with more stuff trying being to impress other people instead you can have a more meaningful life by filling it with stuff. That's important to you. That's the question you need to be asking yourself. What's important to me and if you ask people this question most of them will say things like freedom and flexibility great? But that doesn't mean anything you have to dig deeper so freedom becomes time and time turns into the question. What would I do with it? My answer one work on what. I'm passionate about to challenge myself. Alf continued to grow and three heaven impact on the greatest amount of people. Yeah pretty simple. And now whenever you're faced with some major life decision like quitting a fifteen eighteen year career. It's these little rules that help guide you. This is how to start optimizing your life for meaning and significance to stop measuring yourself against other people and start measuring yourself self against what's important to you. It's how to wake up. People would kill to be in your financial situation because people are always telling me that they want to be doing anything other than going to work. I mean seventy percent of workers hate their jobs. They're telling me if they were financially independent. They'd spend their time watching their kids. Grow up doing more meaningful work or taking a risk. Ask to try something new. The reason you haven't quit yet is because you're attached to work the nine to five routine the relationships with co workers your identity as an attorney. It's it's a dependency. Quitting means taking a big step from the known to the unknown. It means making yourself uncomfortable but you change and grow the most by making yourself. The the most uncomfortable and the best part of quitting is when people ask you what you do for a living. Someone asked me this the other day. Nothing really know like what do you do for work. This is always a hard question to answer because our ridiculous. Does it sound saying you retired in your thirties or forties. But it's true you no longer have to work for money. So I'm spending my time reading writing and thinking working out doing yoga meditating life slows way down and if you think having this level of freedom and control all over your time we'll make you happier or that. Your time is better. Spent some other way because you figure out what's important to you then quit. It'll be the greatest gift you ever gave yourself. And the worst I possible outcome

Intuitive Eating and Cultural Identity with Christyna Johnson, Health At Every Size Dietitian
"The question. It's from a listener named Jen and who writes Hi Christie. I'm up and down with eating struggles and I'm not sure how much of it is a lack of intuitive eating versus eating disorder related. I have a history of Anerexia UNBELIE MIA that I mostly recovered from. But I still have a bit of food obsession and body image issues that I'm holding onto it seems to go in phases a few you good weeks of feeling good and then back to it. I often find myself eating related to emotions frustration boredom etc and having a hard hard time listening to my body's cues hunger. I have a hard time saying no to myself. Even if I'm not hungry it feels more like my mind wants it than my body. I don't binged like I used to but I feel I am over eating and eating unnecessarily and trying to get satisfaction from it but often don't I often feel unsatisfied died despite allowing myself sweets regularly. I know in your podcast. You often emphasized to eat what you want but with my history. I don't know that I can trust my body's cues to do so as it often doesn't seem like a physical need for food. I'm wondering if you have any advice for me to deal with these urges. Do I need to pursue eating disorder help or intuitive. Who would've eating help? Thank you so much in advance Christie. I really appreciate any help. So thanks Jen for that. Great question and before. I answer just my standard disclaimer disclaimer. That these answers and this podcast in general are for informational and educational purposes only and our substitute for individual medical or mental health health advice so first of all I wanNA send you so much compassion because it sounds like you've been through a lot in your relationship with food. Sounds like you're still going through a lot lot in your relationship with food and you know Kudos to making it this far and recovery has it's no easy feat to get out of the depths of Anorexia and bulimia even even if you're still in this gray area early recovery. I think it's amazing that you are not as engaged in the eating disorder behaviors as it. Sounds like you used to be but that said it definitely sounds like you still have a ways to go and your recovery and specifically it sounds like you still have a lot of diet mentality or eating disorder mentality going on and really. They're kind of in the same. I would say the eating disorder mentality is sort of maybe sometimes a more amplified version of the Diet mentality but it all comes from the same place place which is internalized beliefs from diet culture about foods being good or bad or issues about weight feelings and thoughts about weight right beliefs that higher weights are bad and things like that. All of that is internalized. Dia Culture beliefs that you have made your own right. So that's that's what the Diet mentality. That's what the eating disorder mentality is. And that is really evident in some of the phrase. You used here and your question Mike when you say I have a hard time saying no to myself Alf. Even if I'm not hungry and I feel I am overeating and eating unnecessarily so it sounds like you're thinking that you should be eating less and you're policing facing the amounts you eat and you're perceived reasons for eating and that's very much a restrictive mindset. That's very much a diet mentality eating disorder mentality. I'll be mindset. The reality is there's no such thing as quote unquote eating unnecessarily right. If you're eating it's necessary. It's necessary because has especially in the case of recovery from disordered eating. Your body needs to learn to trust that you're not going to start it again and Jenn. It's likely that your body body really needs a lot of work on rebuilding that trust since you had anorexia and bulimia which are really severe violations of trust for your body. Those are in trauma to the body trauma to the brain. A real disconnection of that body. Trust that we're all born with and you know it takes you away from your intuitive relationship with food when you have a disorder anorexia Bulimia which is very harsh very driven by diet culture rules and beliefs and not at all intuitive intuitive not at all honoring the hunger and fullness and satisfaction cues that you were born with and that we all deserve to be able to honor so I would really encourage you to work on this mindset and stop seeing these urges to eat and this perceived eating in response to emotions as wrong or bad the way. I think you're seeing them now. I would encourage you to get help from a dietician who's versed in both eating disorders and intuitive eating and health at every size because I think you need all of that in order to recover I think you need probably definitely still some recovery from your eating disorder. It sounds like you still have some really restrictive thinking going on that you need to to be able to recover from. Maybe some restrictive behaviors as well. When you're talking about trying to get yourself to stop eating right but you also you know? It sounds like you need some help in tuning earning back into your cues and starting to trust those cues Allah intuitive eating so finding a provider who gets that and also gets the health at every size paradigm and is not going to shame you for if you're in a larger body size of your body or say anything that inadvertently makes you feel like you have to lose weight or anything like that. It's really important to find a Dietitian who gets gets all of those things. So you can check out Kristie Harrison dot com slash providers for my recommendations of providers who get it. These are people who've been on the PODCAST. Who who really understand the anti diet philosophy and who? I think. Have the best chance of being able to help you recover. Unfortunately there are still too many eating disorder providers Out there and even intuitive eating focus providers out there who are caught up in diet culture to varying degrees. So if you WANNA try to avoid that I think my shortlist list of providers who've been on the podcast is a great place to start because I try to vet everyone really thoroughly before I even invite them onto the show so you know at least I have a sense that they are pretty well versed in all of these ideas and these philosophies and they're not gonNA turn intuitive eating into a diet for you and they're probably gonNA call you Out For trying to join intuitive eating into a diet so Christie Harrison dot com slash providers is where to get that also as I shared a few episodes ago on the podcast in the listener. QNA for episode two. Oh nine with amy severson. Hunger doesn't always manifest as sensations in the stomach in fact far from it. So when you're judging yourself as quote unquote eating because you're not hungry. I don't think that really tells the whole story either. You likely are having non stomach. Sensations nations of hunger that you just aren't identifying such as thoughts of food difficulty concentrating anxiety. You know lots of other things. So check out that episode for a deeper dive into that where I talk about the non stomach signs of hunger and the sort of things that people overlook when they're trying to learn to honor their hunger you're that's at Christie Harrison Dot com slash two oh nine Christie Harrison dot com slash two. Oh nine or wherever. You're listening to this. You can just look for episode two. Oh nine so I hope that helps ups and just want to send you a lot of compassion and a lot of support in breaking free from these last vestiges of the Diet mentality these restrictive thoughts and beliefs. About how you're eating and just give you full unconditional permission to eat whenever you feel like eating for whatever reason because you deserve it. You don't have to second gase reasons for eating. You don't have to second guess whether it's really physical or emotional or mental. It doesn't matter those distinctions. Don't matter what matters is allowing yourself full unconditional permission to eat for any reason so that you can rebuild that trust with your body after having it so damaged and so broken by the anorexia Bulimia which are really really harmful to your relationship with food right. and your ability to eat intuitively so again. Thanks for that question Jen.

Safe Sunscreen Alternatives
"Hi Welcome to the show I'm your host. Samantha Leigh Right. The essential oil revolution is the place to go to learn about all things essential oil and health today however we are going to take a slight departure to focus Chris on a topic that I'm really passionate about and that is non toxic. sunscreen consumer awareness in general is super important. I think especially especially in the sunscreen industry. Now the interviewee that I have on the show. Today is an expert when it comes to natural sunscreen. Alternatives says he didn't know a lot about essential oils. Though so I wanted to dig up some essential oil information I could share with you all in regards to son health. Alf and here's what I found. There's a great article from a website called living pretty naturally dot com up linked to that in the show notes if anyone wants to read the entire hire article but some information. I pulled from there that I thought was really interesting. was that red. Raspberry oil is a pretty close. Ah quivalent to the protection you receive from titanium dioxide found in most mineral sunscreens Scott an SPF range of about twenty. When he eight to fifty depending on the oils quality the essential fatty acids and host of antioxidants in this oil are also great for other skin healing purposes including EXA and psoriasis Red Raspberry seed oil protects against UV A. N. The raise also another oil to note about in this is a true essential oil? I think Red Raspberry seed oil isn't technically in essential oil but carrot seed essential oil is Said said to contain a high. SPF factor win diluted with a carrier oil it can have an SPF of thirty eight to forty however aside from Red Raspberry seed oil most plant oils protect only against UV rays and not also UV rays while we're on the subject of essential oils and the Sun John always be aware that citrus oils. Such as Lime Burgum oh grapefruit orange. And even Kumon essential oil have photosynthetic properties. So please don't put those essential oils on your skin that are going into direct sunlight for at least twenty four to forty eight hours now with that said our recipe today that we're pulling from the DIY. dugout comes from Brooke Brown in Boone North Carolina. She's on Instagram at rookie. Rookie Mama Brown. And her recipe is called the after son. Spray to make the after son spray in a glass spray bottle combined. Four ounces of rosewater two to fifteen drops of lavender essential oil in one to two drops of peppermint essential oil shake well before each use and spray on skin. That's been out in the sun for a bit too
How to Follow Through on Simple Daily Habits
"You know what I'm talking about that thing that you're like yeah you know just every other day I need to call my mom or I've got her ember once a week to are the plants Dang it I have got to get back into the habit of exercising three times a week doc whatever it is right now I'm not talking about the thing that you're not doing it at all or you don't have the motivation to I'm talking about the thing that it should very easily be a habit you just keep forgetting it so maybe exercises in a good one either you keep forgetting it or you keep allowing something else to get in the way just for whatever reason you haven't been able to make it happen and it's not that hard but if it is that important we need to put some serious accountability around it so I wanNA share with you a couple of things that I've done that hopefully you can take from the US and make them your own on number one I don't have a great memory I wish I was as thoughtful dive into memory just if I'm being honest I'm not as thoughtful as my husband is every day if we're not together which we usually are if we're apart for more than a couple of hours he texts me and he'll say how are you doing today how are you feeling and he always remembers like something that happened the day before or if I maybe earlier in the week I said my foot hurts my backwards or whatever every day when he checks in with me if we're not together he remembers something specific that tells me he cares and he's thinking about me and he's listening and I am picky about him and I care and I'm listening to bring a freaking forget to do that so what I started doing being this is a couple of years ago is I created a little reminder that comes to my phone and I use an APP called if this then that if this then that and I set it up so that it sends me text message reminders and I use this like crazy so one of the things I use it for is to remind myself alf because you know if you have. Add or you just get lost in your thoughts and I'm making excuses now if you're not as thoughtful as your spouse you sometimes forget these things and you just need a little reminder so I get that little text message it'll say check in with Brett and then I remember to send him a text funny thing is earlier today I had just gotten the message I'm like Oh there it is and so I was like just composing text in and boom it beat me to already sent me a Texan is like hey what are you doing do you want me to bring you coffee I'm like Dang any beat me to it my point is you can set up reminders to help you to do the things you know you just need a little help to make certain that they happen on a regular basis another might be like maybe it's calling your mom I have a reminder that have inside of my ear it's a post it note a list of about thirteen maybe fifteen people that these are important people that don't see regularly but there are people who they're really important to me and I just want to remember to stay in touch with them so they are on a little post it note on the inside of a mere whenever I opened up my mirror I see name and I go down that list and Oh okay yesterday I texted Mindy and today I'm going to text Sean and I just go down the list and so I don't have to thirteen or fifteen of them or however many is on that list on one day but it's a reminder to get through that list because some these people I don't see on a regular basis so it's a little bit out of sight out of mind and I try to stay off a social media like I tried not to use social media to keep up with my friend I I try to really use my phone and call them in the what I liked Paul personal podcast I know there's an APP for this stuff but you know so like my friend Kim Guard I love her I see her maybe twice a year but I think about it all the time which is in my heart so rather than leading a year ago by just have this little reminder in my medicine cabinet to Texas people let me think of some other examples all right here's one I love of exercising with friends so I do that in a regular basis and I always have but depending on the season there can come at time where it's like Oh that person's really busy and then I don't see them for a while and then now suddenly I'm not exercising with a friend and I don't need to exercise with a friend to keep myself accountable but my thing is I would rather do something healthy when I get with a friend as opposed to like saying hey let's get together and it's always cocktails and food why not have it be something that's really healthy I find I tend to have deeper more personal conversations when I'm exercising with a friend anyways so I have three girlfriends who I rotate my schedule and I exercise with them and it's cool because it keeps me accountable to my fitness gene but more importantly it guarantees I'm going to spend some quality time with someone that I love and we're supporting each other and something that's good for us another example that might be maybe the thing that you need to do is you're like I'm exercising all the time but I keep telling myself I need to change it up but I'm not it so what do you need to do to make that happen do you need higher personal trainer do you need to just set a fitness date and start exercising with a partner the next examples one if you don't mind I'd like to kind of pat myself on the back I kind of need to and I want to do this and set a good example for you as I try to encourage you to do you've got to take a moment every so often typically every six months and celebrate your win this is really important if you're the kind of person who's interested in personal growth because when you're trying to be a better human being you're always trying to be better Oh you forget how vital it is to have motivation in that pursuit and if you're not ever looking back over your shoulder and to see where it is you've come from and what you've accomplished you're missing out on a healthy dose of endorphins that dopamine hit that we all need stay motivated into feel good like you need to feel good so if you can't do this for yourself I want you to ask someone else hey can you think of things that maybe I'm doing better now than I was like two years ago or five years ago or fifteen years ago a girlfriend of mine recently was going to you pretty emotional time liquor force was finally final and she's been like just a trooper through the whole thing just buckling down and doing whatever she needed to do and doing right you know and she was just like I'm just going to tell the truth and I'm going to bend over backwards I'm going to be the bigger person and all of this and it was really really hard and and she stayed really strong throughout the whole thing but then when it was suddenly final divorce was final she became surprisingly emotional she was like what is going on why emotional I've had two years to kind of processes wise it all sudden hitting me and I think sometimes we get there's something really difficult and hard it's only then that we realized we can relax for a moment and the emotions come to us just come rushing through and bret was making the analogy that a lot of times you'll see like when guys win a national championship or something really monumental from an athletic standpoint is really tough burly guys and here they are bawling their heads off at the end why will because tears are response it's a physical response to an emotional connection doesn't necessarily mean you're sad it might mean your euphoric and might mean you you're proud of yourself it it means you're happy we've all had tears of joy but she was having these tears and I said you're grow you've been holding your breath really and just doing what you needed you putting your head down and buckling down trotting through this with such determination that you probably finally just are happy the moment to be proud of yourself and and be emotional about it and that's don't try to stop that you guys like to go ahead and let that happen how did they get on the subject anyways she was kind of reminiscent in kind of you know bombed I guess and I thought I bet she doesn't realize like all the amazing changes that have happened in her life in the last two years and all the progress issues made and so I created a little voice recording kind of like this just in case she I had forgotten how far she come and I think it's important we all do that so I think about the fact that when I first started podcasting in two thousand fourteen I said I refuse to give you guys a regular schedule and I'm not going to tell you I'm GonNa podcast one time a week or two times a week or five times a week I'm just going to be asked when I can fit it in and at the time that felt like the right thing to do but honestly I wanted to podcast more I just I didn't want to disappoint anybody and I wasn't disciplined enough I didn't have schedule I I didn't want to create one that forced me into podcasting and the more I realized this was serving bowl and this was like a way to give back like it doesn't cost you anything to listen to a podcast and that there were hundreds of thousands of people that I could help like who couldn't afford what a life coach or didn't have somebody to pour into them or to share experiences they didn't have a wise friend or or maybe they just needed someone to keep him company

Women's Health & Plant-Based Nutrition With Dr. Gemma Newman
"Everyone about your path path into medicine and how you found plant based nutrition and then you know this entire episode is going to be answering a lot of questions about women's health that we get asked all all the time and i know you see this in your in your practice you take care of patients from all age ranges in all stages of life so i think that it's going to be just so informative for our listeners so starting with weird did you start in medicine getting into plant based diet and just tell her a little bit about yourself my k. well will i am as you say i'm a primary care physician and i've been working in clinical practice for fifty years now so it's been a long long time and i've been doing all sorts of specialties in that time but my my work in general practice has been for eleven years and i just ask you all sorts of people bull and my passion permits has always been i've always wanted to be a doctor and help people and get to know them and their family so it's been a dream unrealized but i did find early on in my practice that was getting increasingly frustrated because here in the UK i'm seeing you partner with a small friendly family participant typical nearly three thousand people but we only have ten minutes per person so i had to find ingenious ways of including nutritional lifestyle information in that ten minute paradigm and monies to achieve it and get some incredible results for people and it really did feel like i was suddenly able to add a lot more to my medical toolbox than i ever had before and my journey was long process i've always had an interest in life steinmetz in getting to the real root of what it is that has caused disease a condition rather than solely treating either symptomology or the actual disease process assisted self so it started early on with motivational interviewing techniques solution focused brief therapeutic approaches and then when i went into the realms off off inning to give nutrition advice i was more cautious to start with because i haven't done much study in that area at that time i kind of i knew that the general zeitgeist iced with cops a bad and but i didn't give that advice my patients freely i lost of weight that way but then what i discovered myself alf in my own house was that my lipid profiles raised despite weight loss and good exercise regimes and i have a family history of heart disease so i'm actually a few years ago was even off a deal to talk about my journey but i declined i didn't feel as though it was a good example to set for others when i was still struggling with ray snippy the profile but for a few years and i found the evidence around competition and like you know ten years on with two kids and the exercising less than half the amount manage to not only have a normal BMI but also been my lip profiles to the normal range so i was absolutely delighted and that really began my studying odyssey so i spent the last few years studying ins and outs of competition and being able to share that with my patients has been one of my absolute greatest joys i've seen so many powerful transformations in people that it's truly made medicine not only my vacation location but huge passion so it's been wonderful that is so admirable and i just love that you shared that part of your journey it's just it's i really really do find that a lot of physicians who feel passionate about this found improvements in their own life through integrating attrition into their own families and their own personalizing generalizing their own health and that's a really beautiful story because it's just so interesting how your evolution of health of you've tried different kinds of scope of diets them them yourself and have tried absolutely so i have to say i i used to have a used to love steak it was my favorite meal you know i used to not eat those kinds of phase in so i try not to come at this with an evangelistic tone but raven i've been told i really really have the that's so it's actually so valuable actually that something i'm majorly lacking actually because so i became the cherian and then vegan like i stopped eating we need is like maybe eighteen and then became begin my early twenties so i like never liked meat so i do lack i saw that i like incredibly empathetic and i truly believe like everyone's on their own journey and i respect where everyone is with food and nutrition so personal but i do lack the like understanding understanding of like you know oh don't you just mistake because i never i never liked it actually the funniest example ever is that recently there was a vegan deep ball oh and i was eating it and i actually almost threw up because i have a fight because i thought it was me everyone around you was like how delusional are you you've who need not me but like even the kind of like texture consistency like it just makes me sick and what's so important to recognize that you you know people who who did really like animal products you know it it actually gives you a level of understanding with your patients that it's not easy for everyone to drop it in a day i actually she think that adds a level of compassion and empathy to your practice that so important oh thank you done you know i do i do become a base from eleven to standing funding and and people sometimes look at me a bit funny and sale it's all right for you you know you probably never even liked it and sometimes say actually no it used to be my favorite thing i used to always order a burger or a steak and what i have to do is i have to align myself with the information available and then when side thunder unrealized the health benefits then of course i allowed an appreciation of the other benefits to come into my consciousness especially received the environmental and animal compression size it it is a win win but yeah i i am to to really help people guess it from their own health and what they can achieve so beautiful i think your your your empathy and compassion it comes through if you will we'll talk about where everyone can find you and social media leader but you can definitely definitely definitely must follow dr newman actually just tell them right now during episode okay okay a few insists so you can find me on instagram you can find me on instagram at plant power doctor so that's my instagram handle and you can look at my website jimmy newman dot com and the the reason why i say that is because gemma went one thing i love about you the me that you and i and a lot of other plant based actress sharon common is this empathy i think that understanding that all of our patients don't have to go one hundred percent but just the more plant predominant implant forward is important meant it opens up the realm of health and wellness to more people it's more inclusive acid- than it is exclusive and i think that your social media really reflects that it just reflects that this is a journey for everyone and we're just here to support people on this journey so i think you're positively he is just really shines through so every make sure hawes s right now and go to your instagram up and follow dr what she shares so you up i wanna talk all about women's health because i get questions all the time about women's health and i had natalie crawford who's in OBGYN infertility specialists on for the episode she's brilliant and wonderful and we can only hit on so much and so i've so many leftover questions to talk to you about as you are a primary care provider and you're a female physician and you love women's health i am so excited to talk to you about a different ways that you've incorporated some integrated medicine plant based nutrition into your practice to help with different issues and women's health so starting with one of the most common questions i've received starting with even just premenstrual pain and menstrual cramps something that it seems like for some people is not much of an issue but for others it's really really really debilitating there are some different tricks of the trade that people can go about this naturally likes i'd love for you to that of course i do see a lot of women with period issues and sometimes it can be really hard to manage and and it depends on the person's always awesome there have been the different methods that they're looking at but what's amazing is that there are certainly some natural remedies that can be potentially henchi as effective as the drugs that we would usually tend to to help with period pains so for example i do love turmeric it's as an incredible spice and there was a study to show that the kirkman has an incredible ability to reduce premium pains it also increases media enough levels in the bloodstream membrane your traffic factor which is a protein that is known to help with new on survival and growth and what's incredible is that it also is linked to reducing zinc period pain that was a randomized controlled trial and what they did was they got women to take kirkman supplementation three cycles vest as a placebo supplement i'm what they found was that in the women who took the cu-cuban supplement there was a significant improvement in mood in physical symptoms and of course in that BGN f- levels does and it didn't require very much dish acquired a couple of capsules daily from seven days before their period and that's something that could be hugely effective so just a really basic thing you know you might know it's quite easy just to try to reach for the painkillers and that can be the the stan thing but if you're caught something that's not true that you can use which is effective then why not use it that's amazing especially because it's so easy when you're young you know when you're woman in your twenties and thirties and you have crabs it's so so easy to just like grab for a ton of advil because had a works but it's at the same time it's like to think that there is an alternative method out there that has this anti-inflammatory in pain reducing without you know the side effects of medication even over the counter medications mazing so that's that's a great tip well ginger you mentioned over the counter medication so ginger there was a study on ginger and they got three different cohorts of women ebb and they gave one third of the cashews of ginger powder at two hundred and fifty milligram dose four times a day for three days from from the first day of their periods and they gave a second one mefin casted two hundred fifty milligrams which as you know is a strong anti inflammatory painkiller yeah those and they gave the four hundred milligrams of ibuprofen in the third cohort again i think that was three times daily so all given quivalent dosages and what they discussed no it is a lot different graves and what they discovered was that they were all equally
Is Amazon Prime worth it?
"Right now. I wanna talk about something so many millions of americans arkins do by wrote their members of amazon prime paying a hundred nineteen dollars a year to be able to have one to two day delivery of items at no minimum to have occasionally access to items that are for prime members only to have access to prime instant video to have access to amazon's no frills not the full frills tells the no frills music service. There are a lot of different things that amazon uses to keep us connected to it. I'm a funny situation and that i pay the one nineteen year for amazon because their series of shows that my family lying loves to watch that are only on the prime instant video service so i'm looking at it as like a ten dollar a month video subscription we order order very few items from amazon prime and so in my case when nobody's really interested in those prime video shows does anymore we're done because there's nothing else that would hold us there but everybody situation's a little different so it clark dot com com. We put together quiz. It'll take you oh probably about three minutes to fill out where you ask yourself alf thirteen questions and so you can just go down the questions really quickly on amazon prime quiz and you just circle your choices says on the thirteen this actually isn't gonna take even said and then you add up the points you come up with based on the answers search and we've got a scale that if you scale above seventy five points on this quiz then yeah it's worth it for you to spend one hundred twenty a year but if you fall below that then this is really money you're throwing down the tubes cbs another thing with amazon to other things you even as a non prime member you hit a minimum order bucket just like you do with walmart walmart and you don't have to worry about being a prime member. You're still gonna get free. Shipping is not going to be one or two days but you'll get free shipping and and so. I think that's really important for you to think about the you don't
New Trump family detention rule faces legal challenges
"This week the trump administration unveiled a new regulation that would allow for the indefinite detention of migrant families crossing the border if approved the rule would eliminate a key part of a nineteen ninety seven court settlement that limits the detention of unaccompanied minors to twenty days in federal custody administration officials argue the new rule is necessary to deter mass migration at the border but it's likely to face legal challenges from immigration advocates such as the A. C. L. U. which denounced the move is quote yet another cruel attack on children joining me now to discuss this is university of San Francisco law professor bill on heating and takes you with the immigration editor Taiki interests welcome to both of you so professor hang the new rule it published today what happens next a federal judge has to approve it what's the process no threat so legal papers are being filed as we speak actually challenging the new proposed regulation and the government will respond and judged Dolly G. the the federal judge overseeing the floors case will hear arguments very soon and make a decision on whether or not the regulations are consistent with the floor settlement agreement anti key for people who don't know there is a key court settlement from nineteen ninety seven it's in play here it established this twenty day limit on detaining migrant children can you explain that yeah absolutely so back in the Clinton administration there was this legal settlement that basically said children are vulnerable they're not the same as adults in immigration custody they need to be cared for with sort of child welfare standards in mind so so the settlement favors release of children as quickly as possible keeping them in the least restrictive setting possible and in a facility that's license for child care by the state and it also gave oversight to the plaintiff's attorneys representing the kids to be able to go in and monitor and make sure that conditions were okay so then under the Obama administration or a lot more families coming and they set up these family detention centers that ice immigration and customs enforcement was running and judge she said those are not license for child care that's not an appropriate place for kids it's more of a jail like sending and the government so we need at least twenty days probably to get these kids placed in a proper facility or get them released and she said in the ninth circuit court of appeals a firm to that okay twenty days it would be acceptable if you're moving with you know due diligence and in good faith to put them in a more appropriate situation so that's where that twenty day thing came from in professor hitting what with the elimination of this twenty day limit lead to it will lead to the possibility honestly of indefinite detention because that's like he was saying they can release they they can turn these families over in theory to a state licensed facility but that was the problem that the federal government had there are no state licensed facilities for family detention male children who are alone unaccompanied children they do get turned over to state licensed facilities but not families so that's why the twenty days constricted the government they actually had to release force and they've been releasing many of these families with ankle monitors for example but now the government is proposing that they want to keep them longer because they presumably need more time to take care of of resettlement but the trump administration has admitted that really this is about the turns they want to send a message to migrants that you shouldn't come here because you may end up being in custody for a long time and I want to ask you about that in a second but I wanna dance take you first do you think that these detention centers as they are established now are equipped to Alves families a lot of families for a long time well they're they're about three of these facilities the two biggest ones are in Texas I think they can hold about three thousand people altogether three thousand beds for parents and kids I think I think if they're going to do this indefinite thing they would need more space and you know child advocates say that the detaining children even if their with their parents is is harmful for kids so as professor he said there's yeah I mean the tension isn't required the trump administration says they want to to hold people while their asylum proceedings go forward but those cases can take years and the courts are very backlog so let's get back to this issue of trying to send a message I heard a White House spokesperson basically saying the florist settlement incentivized immigration a family or a family size group shows up at the border knows that they will be detained for twenty days four days and then basically released into the country to await trial there in it's all good their journey has all been worth it is this what you have seen actually you're not and if that were true I wouldn't feel so bad about what's going on but listen at the clinic that we have a diverse census we have over three hundred cases and half of those are family units I went to Honduras in March and spoke with families and we're thinking of leaving and I volunteered at the border in Tijuana and these folks are fleeing because of desperate circumstances they're not coming to visit Disneyland they're fleeing violence Jane cartel and in many cases domestic violence and so in my experience these folks are not coming just for a walk in the park Congress approved four point six billion dollars in emergency humanitarian aid if you're marked funds to improve conditions in immigration detention facilities based in part on what professor hating other immigration attorneys reported seeing at a facility that house to migrant kids mothers and babies Tychy along with removing the limit on detaining migrant families what with this new rule affect the conditions at the facilities where migrant families are being held well I think one of the other big changes that that would happen if the new rule goes into effect in Florida settlement goes away then the oversight that these plaintiffs attorneys on behalf of the children have and that the the federal judge has to make sure that conditions are up to par and are appropriate for kids that oversight goes away the lawyers like professor hang have been able to go inside the facilities and talk to children and and that wouldn't exist anymore and so also without the the requirement that the facilities be licensed for child care by a state like the California you know health and Human Services folks then if the federal government doing its own licensing and there are some concerns that that there's not as much independent oversight of conditions immigration stopping it essentially has been V. banner don't give ground issue for the trump administration do you professor hang see any day light for a compromise a conversation that leads to president trump Democrats immigrant advocates coming together and making some sort of compromise that ratchets down the rhetoric that we hear so often about immigration I wish I could be more hopeful I I in my opinion this is really about trump trying to play to his base he doesn't have to be labeling these migrants and national security risks he actually could be doing what was happening prior to twenty fourteen I'm I'm saying this and in part criticism of president Obama's while the it's become a pejorative term but catcher release worked people were arrested they were taken into detention but they were process very quickly and sent along the way because I snows were folks are going to have names addresses of relatives and there's a very high appearance rates of people were not upstanding and until we recognize the humanitarian nature of really wife people are leaving I don't think that there's going to be room for for negotiation and less that kind of rhetoric is ratcheted down university of San Francisco law professor bill on heating and KQED immigration editor Taiki Hendricks thanks both of you for joining us here thank

Get it Done Now
"Well for the last couple of years we've told people they could take time off during the holidays. But if they're gonna work they need to come in the office. And even though they came in the office. It was you know, really kind of slow and half days. And so this past year in two thousand eighteen we try something new we implemented a new policy, which effectively shut down the office, unless you're on PTO paid time off we shut down the office, you were still working, but you didn't have to come into office. So between Christmas and New Year's there was really no one in here. Every once in a while someone will drop him because they forgot something that seemed to be here for minute or two operations went on. They just weren't here in the office. They worked from home, and it was really nice, and I did the same thing and. It was great. It was very effective if a client call it or we had to get something done, and we still gotta done. We just didn't have to commute. Well, New Year's Eve as always for a business day was very very slow, but I actually decided to come in. And so I came from Alf four or five hours, and I was doing the final preparations for this podcast. We were going to be launching on January second, and I wanted to make sure that we had a backlog if episodes, and I was in here all by myself on New Year's Eve for a couple of hours during the day, and it was super effective. So it's really nice when I can come into the office, actually and get a lot of work done. And there aren't people here. The phone's not ringing. There's not a lot of distractions, and you could just get down and focus on work as a matter of fact, right now when I'm recording this it's six fifty on a Friday night. And I'm doing it for that. Same exact reason I decided there's nobody here there. Nothing going on. I can totally focus, and I can pump out a couple of these episodes and get them recorded and build a little bit backlog. So that I don't have to stress out in three or four or five days when someone's telling me that we're getting low on episodes. I can get it done and get out of the way. And then when I come in Monday through Friday during normal business hours on I'll have to worry about this. Or some other thing that I'll take care of tonight because it's just done whenever you get an opportunity to get something done early get it done. And that's actually one of our core values which is urgency. Always have urgency of what you do even if it's the holidays, even if your offices shut down if you wanna get ahead in business and life take care of this things. Now, don't wait until the next time that the offices open to get your work done. Just get it done. Now. Thank you for listening. I hope you heard something you can implement in your
"alf" Discussed on Everything's Coming Up Simpsons
"Besides like, those heavier themes, how do you feel like opened the door for modern television today? Well, I'll say personally in help broaden is that when I started I worked on tonight show, and I worked on I think I'll battle the news and Alf and people at the time, we're like, oh, you're just you have no soul. You're just a gag, man. You're no people than telling you what you are what you're not. Tell you what you can't do. And so I I'm gonna Simpson's. We had the opportunity to write moaning Lisa, and I said to make we gotta write this. We gotta prove that we're not just feeling was robots, and of course, with the Simpsons and everything opened up, and we got to write for Lisa, and you know, but shows like health now, people don't just go. Let's just the silly shows those aren't because now silly shows cartoons like you're saying big mile. Those are the ones that actually really reach people can Morty as well. Yeah. Kids kids really care about what they are. And learn from them and their big Fame's in Rick and Morty, and like big themes and big mouth. And yeah, I feel like I mean, my job for the last handful of years has been that most like kids entertainment is good or most like adult emission, especially is like, you know, trying to reach sort of a higher theme. But I feel like there is still right now interestingly like a small population that is affected by this YouTube culture. Whatever like random like flip flop. Joe Joe coming soon too. Stuck in like YouTube holes. And yeah, yeah. But then I feel like because of shows that have more of that heart to it, of course, including the Simpsons that has been like the consistent trend. So I think that that's like the aero that we're going in thank God named happened. When I one time I got to have lunch with Stanley. When I said, I've been waiting for Spiderman movie all my life. He goes. So. And you know, now, I every I collecting comics as a kid, I never would have dreamed. It would take over the entire movie that it would be not only the, you know, the biggest movies, but really some of the best. I mean, the the best written the best into the spider versus the best movie ever made. The best. Last year. Best picture really is excellent. I liked to as much as the favourite and I loved the favorite. Attic because I just thought. Wow. All three actresses were. Really? So great all different ways. Especially in animation. We're talking about spider. I like, you know, the bar has been raised like so I mean, especially not just with the story, which was impeccable in great and everything you wanted to be more. But the animation style was so great. I was at wonder con yesterday and shout out to my husband. He was on a panel Graham and during that panel, the other panelists where my callings worth who is revising director, of course, men and his wife, Anna who works on university, which had was prominently featured in the LEGO movie Jordan Morris wrote on just. Oh, I didn't know that now. But my colleagues on the panel said that he recently heard interview with Garam Odell Toro in which he talked about how since spider verse came out, it has affected everything that he doesn't animation. So. Feels like there is a pre spider verse in post spider verse way, to go about things because of the frame rate that they went after because of the style of you know, voting the comic books themselves, and that sort of grayness in that texture to it and how it's making him rethink literally everything that he doesn't that space in how cool is that see that ripple effect take hold of the first time, I saw DeeDee and the beast just clapping. I I can't believe how much faster and better. The enemy is in anything that was ever done anything with spiders..

That you know, certainly Jim Brooks did Mary Tyler Moore. So that's another, you know, enormous influence on my whole generation and everybody. Yeah. The same thing is true of a magazine that I know of popular in the seventies. Things that you were saying then that people are afraid to say now, it is pretty interesting. I worked for national and Poon another seventies magazine, like nineteen eighty we did in article where we made fun of this thing was popular time, a two page thing telling you how to write Kurt Vonnegut Z how to write an essay, so Mike, and I do Thurgood Marshall tells you how to write pornography 'cause you need so much on the supreme court, and it looked so good. So close to the original that he got a hold of it. And he said the FBI find out where this. File and then they put the dress at the magazine. And so they called think it's a humor magazine. It's protected by the first amendment's or. Yeah. I mean, but then you could do stuff that there's a national Poon documentary. That was good. I thought and it was like, wow. Watching the stuff now. I would go half of it. You couldn't do right? Yeah. Yeah. It's interesting to think of why that is. And that is a big topic. But it is interesting to see the evolution and kind of the steps back that are simultaneously. You know, things are still moving forward. Of course, they're also behind the scenes famous workplace story or ambience was a writer, and she's girlfriend of Michael Donahue. So she went for a raise and the bus who I just keep your boyfriend raise like everything about it. Anybody saying that I mean, you'd be like seconds -absolutely, but you know, at the same time people say like couldn't get away with this. Now, it's just like game of thrones is nothing, but rape and sex and violence into the worst things you've ever seen. Like the violence towards animals or I like the shows good. I agree. But I get to a point where I go. I can't take it step. It's a lot. I'm gonna say something it's not good. That's bold stance. No. I will watch it. I will watch. But we this is not a game of thrones podcast is it's going to be very short. But in terms of the reboot or kind of the comeback of Alf, he himself the character definitely both as an alien who has been around for a long time. And just as a well rounded, pop, cultural, you know, pop culture character. I really could see him in any time. Like he is. He does have a timelessness about him. And I could definitely see the HBO version of the show being brought back now or the, you know, not to mention there was a cartoon that existed at the same time. That's insane. Or it could be about him as a TV star from the eighties one of the episodes. I got to work on we had gone onto another show shandling show, but they said you have any curse material effort new show or Elphas hosting Carson type show. So we got all our old stuff, and we gave him this Karnik we had done which was seen. Elsewhere. What's the message and Mother Teresa's answering machine? We got to put that in L. Finally, got the stuff used never stuff that had Carson done all the stuff. He had rejected fine to no discredit to Al. I do feel like. Hell would be paid. If Alf got a late night show before woman, it'd be like that good very likely happen to. Yeah. Like a primetime late night. James corden, could do it off could definitely get his own. And I would watch it for sure that sounds great. I could see him hosting something. I could definitely see alpha like the the comeback. The Lisa Kudrow. Yeah. Oh, yeah. There many different ways that you can kind of like go into an Alfred boot..

And because the and this is there are other podcasts that will go into the writers guild, and what people are fighting for in term rights. But when there was a right to strike not long ago. One of the things that came up with the way that syndication and reruns work, and I would be shocked at that didn't change within the next like ten years five ten years rises.

Interesting peak behind the curtain for people that don't don't think too much about how writing works or how shows are created to think about your favorite funniest silliest cartoonish show people are you know, that is their livelihood. And it's very interesting. I kind of do urge our listeners who don't know too much to maybe look it up a little bit. Because fascinating. And the next time that you hear about a strike. I think you'll have more fun knowing what's happening 'cause fun is the operative. I can say to two dollar check for L. Check for. Yeah. I love. I mean, this is a deep cut on Twitter. But I do enjoy people on Twitter posting their residual checks. Will I deposit? Yes. Everything. That's checking. Compulsive habit. I can't avoid it. You cannot go back to Alvin. And so there's lesser network. So, you know, more I guess ashore thing that you're going to find it audience. But why do you think like content wise Alf hit in such a big way? Well, it's hard to see now because he is you know, there's so much brilliant animation and special. It was a high concept show, and it was actually like a head of its time in terms of production. It wasn't anything like it. And they were really smart to just have Alfie the one unusual creature in the show, and it was really well designed it had, you know, electric years for for nineteen eighty six it really was high technology, and, you know, cutting edged and Paul's really funny. I really believe that it's he's funny that the character based on Emma's, funny and. Yeah. You know, when those things and the, but the sad thing was as you mentioned the last episode is a cliffhanger where he's going to be dissect. Cancelled it, Brandon tartikoff said whoops. I I made a mistake. Yeah. That's beloved. We dissect Lucy. Horrible for any sinus Sawers like, right? There is a precedent for having shows and very intense way. Always about a little bit about the environment and about the future. So the L thing is not the creative teams. Fall the expected. They were going to continue cancelled. Yeah, I'm curious. I don't know if in talking about like modern TV production, if that has evolved to like having a series finale that is graceful in that way, I feel like it always feels really abrupt now is really weird my wifi watching crashing with Pete Holmes, which I thought was fantastic and its third season. Maybe it's best can't wait for cancelled. Like, I don't there's a new model. That's must be an effect where people just go. We don't want like too many seasons or somebody said fifty is the new hundred meaning used all you want to get to a hundred like alpha syndicate, and now fifty is what they go for right? Right. Right. Yeah. I know we'll come up, but just to be safe. I still have not finished soprano. So we shan't be talking about the end of that. Just start telling how sweet it.

You've heard him before talking about all things that are non Simpson. To talk about talk about coming on. Please welcome to the show L, gene. Pleasure to be back. This is L G dirt. Julie prescott. Okay. There is another alpha on the show Alf Clausen does the music just the Simpsons. I'm surprised. I mean, Julie alpha just on the table and refused to take it. And I take offense to that. But I do like that my name in this. Parlance is going to be Julia quotes Alf Prescott. And it's like, I'm a baseball player. I love that. I did. I I think if we roll back the tape you'll hear I did say Julia Fresca. Yeah. So you worked off. This third crummy credits trilogy. Yes, I worked in L for one season. And it was a hit. It was the highest rated thing I ever worked on one show. Mike recent IRO, it was top ten link with twenty million viewers and then two years later. It was off the air. It was very strange story. And with the Simpsons I was always motivated by Alf because I thought a show that Senate kids are big fans of can just plummet immediately Morgan Mindy too. So that's one reason the shows the Simpsons been on thirty years. We can't be short-lived show. For that taste of the sunshine. And then you know away. Right. Right. Well, the Simpsons end with to be continued. Well, the store the reason behind that the a lot of the story relates to Brandon tartikoff, and then I looked up elfin Wikipedia. And the first thing is totally untrue. So I'll leave you say that what I read. Well pulse. Cisco worked with the Jim Henson materials, and he created this character Alf and Bernie Brill Stein. Did want to pitch it. It wasn't Bernie who do had doubts. He took it to NBC, and there's very famous meeting where all the NBC executives hated it. Nothing was nobody was laughing. It was just miserable. And then Fusco wearing Alf picked his nose and wiped it. Brandon tartikoff jacket and tired of cough started laughing so hard. He goes over. You gotta buy this. Playoff made it to the air. Wow. Wow. And so I mean, but Henson was very popular at the time or really was like we're kind of experiencing I feel like a muppet tearing or puppeteer in renaissance. But like that I feel like Henson was like, you know, sky-high coming into theme parks doing stuff like that. So it was that part of the reason of why Alf sort of came to be or is there another origin story beyond. I think there's two things. At that time. Yeah. The Muppets were huge. But also, Paul Fusco who does the voice, and you know, kind of is the character. He doesn't eat cats that I know of. He is really funny. And and you know, he just brought it to life.

He packaging material maker seal their bubble wrap down eleven and a half percent earned the equipment rental company. United rentals lower by four and a half percent. All after earnings, David Wilson. Thank you so much. We're gonna rip up the script with Arthur Levitt, the former chairman of the Securities Exchange Commission. Here's what you need to know in the New York Times killed this Lisa Abramowicz about eight weeks ago on a per capita basis, the number of publicly listed stocks. In a lifetime is down down down. There were twenty three listed companies for every million people a quarter of a century ago. And there's half that now only eleven the shrinkage of the NYSE shrinkage of asset management all of this passive ETF stuff. It's a Titanic thing. That's going on that only. Arthur Levitt noticing well, the current SEC Commissioner Jay Clayton has made us one of his priorities. And Arthur come on in cares. Former SEC chair and current member of Bloomberg l p is this a problem this mass shrinkage of the US public equity markets. I don't think it's as much of a problem as the press would have you believe I don't think the number of listings that come to the various talk exchanges is a fair measure of the health of our markets. I think you could look at our markets today and say they're healthier than ever. They're capable of handling more business. Faster lower prices than ever before in history. That's pretty good measurement of the strength of our markets. As opposed to the number of listings that come to one exchange or the other. I guess that there's an existential question here, which is what are the consequences of the ever shrinking fees both for asset managers and the desire for companies to go private. You know, what do you think the consequences will be to this sort of shift in the market that has been really traumatic? Our market has been extraordinarily resilient in terms of adjusting to enormous shifts of fees. Just look what we were paying per share of stock only fifteen years ago compared to what we're paying today. I think our markets resilience will measure up to that adjust to Schaefer and fees and the markets that that will be sustained and nourished are the ones. Can make it with any kind of fee. Arthur, you are conic is someone that said, the individual investors rights are front and center in part of that has been fee, compression, everyone agrees. There was a time where everything at a Mack truck running through it and everybody who was making way too much comfortably. But if we gone too far are we seeing Invesco Oppenheimer funds today because the fee squeeze is gotten to be too much. No, I think investors are probably smarter today than they were twenty years ago. I think they've focused on fees with a laserlike attention. And that's why you see companies like vanguard doing as well as they are the low expense ratio is a credo that is part of the psyche of every student investor roehi expense ratios for the first time. Investors recognize that fees can kill performance. One thing that I'm struck by talking about fees is the SEC cracking down on the new York Stock Exchange NASDAQ yesterday or Tuesday rather saying that they were charging too much for their data feeds to number of different companies, including a Bloomberg l people disclosure is this potentially really hugely disruptive to the new York Stock Exchange, NASDAQ business models. I don't think so as I said before I think that the. Changes have been remarkably resilient and their ability to adjust to changing circumstances. I have to praise chairman Clayton for emphasis lowering costs for investors does does that come out of the height of the exchanges. Yes. But I think the exchanges are fully capable of adjusting to that. Arthur one quick question. Incredibly important SOX. Dodgers. You gotta go dodgers. Right. Yes. Absolutely. Have to. Why did I know that absolutely because the dodgers come from Bedford avenue in Brooklyn, very good? Arthur Levitt, thank you so much. I knew the answer to that question. Well, listen, my mom hails from Wisconsin. So I'm just cheering for the brewers Moscow on it's fun. It's a fun time of year eleven thank you so much important, particularly on the. This merger in sort of where we are at Lisa. It's stunning to talk to Steve off the federated about across the span of of Markowitz in the early fifties and the modern revolution of asset management. Yeah. Invesco Oppenheimer funds will be the sixth largest US entity. It'll be the thirteenth largest global entity. And within those mergers. There will be synergies of all synergies. It'll be amazing. Well, honestly, there is a question, and frankly, BlackRock highlights sort of pressing nature of this, which is what is the model of asset managers in zero fee world, right where you ETF's that are going to zero fees, and what you saw from black rats rocks results is increasingly other technology Aladdin on other another parts of their business sort of fortify their fees and their revenues at a time. When investors are demanding a lot for not paying too much. I'm as guilty Lisa's anyone here of doing big Bank. Big bang diamond Moynihan, an arrest, and the fact is key KeyCorp of Cleveland and a Bank of New York Mellon were a little is struggling about. What's the new model? And there's a question of is there a free lunch here the consequence? I don't know what the free lunches.

Walmart to pilot Alphabot robotics for grocery pickup
"Has been hit hard by commerce, but one area that's remained resilient to change is the grocery industry. WalMart is continuing to invest in technology to improve the overall experience, even if delivery isn't in the cards. WalMart is injecting some cutting edge technology into the back room of one of its supercenters in partnership with startup alert innovation. WalMart is prepping a first of its kind automation system that will help associates gather and package online grocery orders. The alphabet system is currently being installed at a supercenter in Salem, New Hampshire as part of the stores renovation that will also include a twenty thousand square foot expansion. The new area will house alphabet and serve as a dedicated grocery pickup point, complete with drive thru lanes for customers. WalMart says, the vast majority of grocery items will be fulfilled through the Alf. Abbott system and delivered to associates at one of four pickup stations. Associates will then pick a symbol in deliver orders to customers with alphabet handling more mundane repeatable tasks. Workers will have more time to focus on a sitting in store shoppers. They'll still be responsible for handpicking produce and other fresh items, though alphabet is far from WalMart's first foray into technology and robotics. The big box retailer is actively expanding itself service pickup towers to more than five hundred stores across the country, and it's trialing robot that scans store shelves for out of stock items, incorrect prices, and wrong or missing labels. Alphabet is expected to be up and running. By the end of the year
The Decentralized Cloud Computing Blockchain Network
"To focus on Asia. So late last week, I'm speaking with the guys at Neo about the impact of blockchain on Asian markets. And today I want to speak to the co founder of elf, which is the Asia based cloud computing block shirt. Network is focusing on becoming a global company. Now is a smart contract platform that will allow businesses to take full advantage of blockchain technology, and he's aiming to transform those horrendous complex business operations. That previous generations just accepted and do something about it in our immediate future. But in no familiar rambling on so book and hold until it as I beam your ears all the way to Singapore. So we can speak with Xueliang Chen the co, founder of elf. So massive, warm, welcome to the shows ruling. Can you tell the listeners a Labatt who you are and what you do? Hello? Everyone. My name is Chen. Julie. Sandy Koufax. CEO of Alf. Yes. Prior to that, I was a strategy comes out multinationals and governments of different topics. And yet slowly I moved into technology 'cause I have a generic background. That's where my passion is started with looking into various projects at in blockchain industry. Then finally met the right partner to foam to start out together. Now you all the co, founder of the issue based cloud computing block chain network, a mind to standing ease these kind of a small contract platform that would allow businesses to take full advantage of blockchain technology and also will transform complex business operations in the future. But can you tell. Exactly what it is and also what makes you guys unique from all the other solutions out there in the similar space without getting into the details. So what else is is we're in you up blockchain system and what we're providing is a high performance sister so that a we use a monkey Chint structure. Each smart contracts, we will have their own side chain so that they do not interfere with each other. And also we enable the notes to row now a cluster of computers, so that makes execution much faster and announced more complicated applications to run on top of that. So EMS show. We're really trying to make a business Ronnie on Shing wing facing and also more customizable in terms of what a we are unique is that where the first one actually enable the notes up to rob last of computers said this makes it much. Easier to scale up in terms of our computational capability at those are storage capability. And also the weight Howie introduced. A mounting structure of Jennifer is a diversity of ecosystem in how to to open up many possibilities. Held business want to run on blotch now don't if it's more full my life in IT. But before we talk about any solution, I always want to understand the exact problem before even thinking about, I think technology into the mix. So can you help listeners visualize the three problems that you see across the digital landscape, which are performance resources and segregation and also the lack of governance. So if you're looks back the evolution of blockchain. So I started as wind use case. Basically, it's bitcoin as a cross-border P2P payments eastern Mobutu towards a storage of battery right now. So that is basically just why use case then here comes the invention of smart contracts. So this. Opens up many more possibilities basically to allow a contracts to execute it your trust myths way. Yes. So you know, once the door has opened up, he basically enables us to serve meetings of customers from a business point of you ever done this list to a a our limitation which is on the performance side. So if you really believe that log chain is Gallup serve businesses for the mass adoption. We need a high performance in high speed to accommodate that. So that is the first problem that we need faster and more capable blockchain system to execute smart
