Fresh update on "abel" discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP Show
"And look, Peterson goes down. That gives opportunity for some backups. Half goes down, gives the opportunity for some backup since losses gone to the Duffy's The Marist Nix the so guards this offense, It's finally the one we've looked for the diversity and a guy that Dynamic aspect to it besides just the home run, and it's finally happened almost by accident because of injuries. I said this several times. I don't want to see that opening day lineup where happens at the top and bodies at the bottom and you have all this swing and miss. From top to bottom, and it just doesn't work. So goes the Duffy's and the Marines. Knicks have made a difference, and I think that's going to continue Those guys going to get playing time. Yeah, I I still don't believe. And I like those guys, too, because Duffy had a Of he had good years in Tampa, where he got on base and I like Maria's Nick, you brought him up for the White Sox. But like I read this stat today, Waddle, someone tweeted this out of the Cubs are scoring the ninth most runs per game in the MLB and their fifth in the National League. They're comin Bunches. That's the thing like these averages. When you average them out. They're sure they have these 10 run days in 12 run days. They wanted a 3 to 2. Okay, but there are far too many of those days when it's a 4 to 1 game or they don't score it all. And it always evens out. They're never going to be at the back. And because when they do they all they front run together. You know what I mean? They all pile on. They start swag in together, but then When the when the strikeouts come, they all strike out together. But they don't all strike out when Duffy Marie's Nick and so garter in there and I'm not saying they could carry you but mix those guys in with the slugger's so we go back to Saturday. They beat the Reds three to the Dodgers sweep was 716543 and today is 32. That's not scorn and Bunches. The way we've seen it. It is a different looking line up, and it's not just the production from dumping those guys. It's what a number that the report I did on scout saying they're all the same. It's just having different kinds of hitters. Highest slugging and then dumpy contact and then results slugging and then Sogard contact. It's given the opposition something different, almost every at bat, depending on who's in the lineup that day, all right before like it, Okay. All right. Well, we'll see where this trends were you. You may get some tax for me this weekend, and they don't put up runs. You know how it worked out the Pirates in town? Yeah, well, let me say something else about the cups because I've been the guy that said, Let's let's just fast forward of July. That's what the season is all about. But this is interesting. What's going on with the standings, right? Nobody in either league is running away with anything that it's all bunched, and there's amazing stat. Per game. There's an average of one batter hit per game by far the highest of all time. There are injurious are Joey Votto Go down the Cubs sitting the cups it two guys today. Think about that one player per game has the chance of getting knocked out for the season at this rate in baseball, one hit by pitch per game on average. No injuries are really piling up partly from that, and partly for other reasons, and I really think I heard Jeff say this to you guys. The healthiest team that has some talent is going to be the team standing at the end. It's not Joyce just going to be who's the deep? I mean, who's the best It's going to be, who is the deepest And and the healthiest and the cups so far been pretty healthy. Pretty healthy. Well, I was gonna ask you, Jesse. So is there any concern about Craig Kimbrel? No, No, he was just over worked a little bit 55 and eight days. Ross said he wasn't available today, but would be available tomorrow. So usually when that happens, the guy comes in, says, Hey, I just needed another day off and look, he's been a horse for them. So far. He's pitched five out saves and all that stuff. I don't think you should be concerned now, if he's not available tomorrow after Ross said that he Woz That's a different story. But the first that anybody hurt he was down. Was that basically the ninth inning when he didn't pitch today, so I wanted to conceive Jessie's points. You know which team in all of Major League Baseball has the best record in the best win percentage. It's the Red Sox at 19 and 13. Abel winning percentage of 5 94. I don't believe this courage have come back to Earth right there. Dodgers. You're 17 and 15. There is not a team in Major league baseball through the first five weeks. It has a winning percentage of 60% or higher. Yeah, I think that's the first time in like decades that through 30 games no one is playing $600 better and I'm towing. The injuries are going to be the story line. It really is. The Dodgers right now, so, man, I really can't believe how many guys are getting hit every single game you get. You see guys getting hit by a pitch in that That's scary. I mean, the little stink and can knock you out, and that happened a bottle over the weekend. All right, Jesse. Good stop. Thank you. Can I give you one? My social etiquette? Things that have been totally forgot about this. Yeah, Yeah. You texted me earlier. Yeah, since you guys were talking about parties and all that stuff, But here's something that happened last week real quick and you tell me if I was right or wrong. I'm listening to your show. As as I often do. I took a walk to Starbucks in the afternoon about 2 30. Okay, It's garbage day. I brought my garbage cans in. I walked to Starbucks. I get my my my jolt of caffeine in the afternoon. I start walking back. It's about a mile from my house. Garbage cans are out there about five minutes into my walk. I'm done with my my coffee. Right? So what do I do? Because I'm listening to the show. I'm kind of in gross guys. You're talking bear on your coffee cup in someone else's trash. Yeah, I pulled my cup in someone else's trashed. Wasn't looking for the person that you know nothing like that while the guy was on the side of the house, and he saw me do it, And he said something to me said this happened and curb your enthusiasm. I think I missed that up. So I said he goes. He goes next time. Can you ask before you do that? I go. I'm sorry. Didn't see you there. I don't think it was a big deal. Sorry about that. I went on my way. And then I thought about like We are we that bad of a society. I can't put my coffee cup in your garbage can. It's better than you throwing in his front lawn. Yes, it is better like if somebody did that to my house, I would be like it's interesting fine because getting outside and someone does that. Are you upset They didn't ask. Look, here's a problem. Now, if someone's throwing, like some coffee that still has some stuff in there, People take pride in a clean garbage. Can that zip airport, especially with the summer coming up, and then they said, Now, then you've got to get him cleaned and everything like that. That's a certain they're a couple sips left and she and now you're gonna Dirty is garbage. Can I retract my mistress? Question dressing when you open the lid or the bags inside, tied off and closed or were the better knows it was empty. Did with later in the day. It already been empty. Yeah, it's an empty Listen, man, and you're throwing away his coffee and it still is some Latin. Listen, if he took off the lid, and he poured the rest out, then throw it away. Game on if you want. I'm joking about a couple. I mean, there may have been something at the bottom, but So it was basically okay. So was empty, but I think that's what he was worried about, and he just got his. You know, we got our cans clean, too. Believe it or not, there's a There's a excuse service that comes by something that sounds because he gets kids, really. They get dirty and gross and the smell call the colonoscopy. So they brought over like some truck and they hosed down the cans and they scrub him. And they like $30. Okay, $30. You can come over to your house to do it for 25. Not clean. A garbage can clean my own garbage cans. Like every three months. Wow, Good. The way I lined the insides of my garbage cans in my My my recycling receptacle. I always rents out for sure. I should have blamed you too, because you were like talking to Schefter or something. I was engrossed by and I didn't see him standing. There should just blamed you too. All right, Jessie Heat in his front yard. Thank you. There's Jesse Rogers. Good stuff. If you want to weigh in on his now, social dilemma, does that guy ever right? I think he's I like I could see it both ways on this one. I could see where the owner's coming from 3323776.

One Family Once More
"A beautiful theme in that this idea of every human represented in all these different nations tribes and tongues are part of the image of god. Yeah we're all in the family of god. But if someone say john put together some thoughts on the family of god the thing i would immediately be thinking about is the very select few i see. Yeah get to be in the family of god and not starting with the sense of. Hey look gods. God's desires for every every nation. Yeah yeah so the biblical story begins with this. Really expanded unified. View of the human family scott's image when that fractures laser focus in on one particular family. And you think Oh god favors just one family just like god favored one brother abel instead of kane. Then you know. God comes and address kane kane. It's not over between you and me. Thank you know you're struggling here but let's pass this and things will go great. There will be good. That's what he says. There will be good if you do. What is right you do. Yeah if you do good there will be exaltation for you to kane and so there's a similar dynamic at work. The family of abraham is chosen not just to go to heaven when they die with their chosen is the vehicle. Got the blessing to all of the other non chosen families and then they do a worse or better job from generation to generation at that. What you also see is that the chosen family is not morally superior in any way to the non chosen and the flip side that it's often among the non chosen families that god raises up heroes and deliverers for the chosen family. So it really messes with your sense of is a story with good people and bad people and emphatically no. It's a story about humans. Yeah but that doesn't erase the faculty. God does choose one and commit himself to working through that one family even though they don't deserve it and even though there's a lot better people outside that family. Yeah it's really. It's an amazing story in from that perspective isn't it. I think another thing that has surprised me a little bit you know. I grew up with the bible. And so i grew up understanding this idea of every tongue tribe nation especially from joko culture. Sure where you know going out like it's missionary. Yeah right and and and making sure that everyone from all these different nations can hear about jesus but for me. I think i just thought of it is just like this. It's some sort of finish line where jesus can come back. And everything can be restored. And he'll do that. Yeah but he'll bring unity to the nation and and so what didn't click was the unity between the nations like the that the reason why every nation needs to be included is four unity. It was just some other arbitrary. Finish line think of interest. Then we get there then. Jeez come back and everything be good and and maybe it was like so everyone has a chance or something like that but but this idea of the unity of the nation's being so important yes so this idea of unity amongst the nation. Yeah being so important to the bible and even and we end there in in the revelation. Yeah and as we're going to see today. We're going to hang out in paul's letters a little bit more for paul. It's not just This is the implication or a consequence that follows from what jesus did. It's actually basic to the message of the gospel for paul this unity of humans across these boundary lines outside the community. Jesus there's all these boundary lines. He's going to name some gender ethnicity. Your national identity your socioeconomic identity and most communities are stratified and divide it up along those lines and for paul. It's basic not just. It's not just a consequence of of the good news about jesus those bound reliance should be transcended for him. It's it's basic to the message. The message doesn't mean what it means if there isn't a community of people doing this alongside their message of the gospel and what is the gospel. It's the jesus is the crucified risen king of all nations and if his people are divided as everywhere else then. They're not actually demonstrating their allegiance to universal king. I think that's why pockets so riled up when these issues are on the line
Wrapping up Genesis 1-11
"Today we're recapping genesis one through eleven. So let's just start with this. Let's it'd be good you just kind of a very high level recap and summary Jt how does the story of genesis start off. Give us the first couple of chapters in the beginning. God creates heaven and the earth. So we see this god who Implicit in this story has existed. Always he is eternal he is all powerful and just by the word of his power. He speaks creation into existence. Anything that we would see. Physical and spiritual is created by god. We we walk through. How he he then forms and then he fills and how these creating this world and he's calling good this world is is is made for To to to demonstrate his goodness and beauty. the pinnacle of this creation is image bearers genesis. One twenty six one twenty six to twenty eight talks. About how adam. Adam or humanity both adam and eve are created to represent and reflect the goodness and beauty of god to all of his creation that he has just made because he says it's very good. Yeah but instead of reflecting guide they choose to rebel against god Trying to subvert his word in his authority by inverting the created order. They listen to the voice of the serpent. They eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. They end up naked in a shame. They have not just eating the wrong fruit from the wrong tree. But they rebelled against the lord who created them and holds the whole earth together and in doing so they find themselves alienated from alias. A true knowledge of self alienated from one another and alienated from the natural order. And we hear that they're going to be consequences because of this rebellion but there is also hope In the light of this rebellion. That god is going to send one through the seed of the woman who would crush the head of the seed of the serpent and we end that fall account with that story of rebellion with a just a glimmer of hope. That eve is the mother of all living. And that god has covered then in a covered their nakedness and their shame But yet things continue to spiral out with the story of cain and abel where the sons of adam and eve cain and abel cain kills abel and there is an increased exile meaning kanus scattered. And he's supposed to live scattered and live in exile really as the consequence of his sinful rebellion the world continues to just become increasingly wicked increasingly evil which brings us the story of noah. Yeah so we're giving to genealogies. Show us that there's this unrighteous line and then there is this righteous line We're told that people begin to call on the lord as things get darker and then we find ourselves face to face with noah who is a man of righteousness in a time of great darkness The most famous boat and all of history at the command of the lord and he and eight family members are brought through a d. creation And a recreation narrative they're carried through the waters of death to life on the other side thus setting up one of biggest themes that we see in scripture And then on the other side of it we find that while judgment has been meted out on the human race. Unfortunately the sin problem lives within humans and has been carried in the heart of noah and in the hearts of his family and so We're we received the even in these early chapters that A great deliver will still be needed. One who is not Carrying sin in his inward being Most moses gives us the picture of noah falling into sin he then gives us the implications of this in a way that is telling his original audience. This is why you are going to meet these great enemies as you enter the land of canaan. so it's a story for them and for them but it's also a story for us in for now as we evaluate our great enemies the world the flesh and the devil and how they'd be set us every day Were then issued from that story of noah and the flood into The table of nations. Everyone's most riveting and favorite passage in scripture Which is showing us what happens. Actually after the tower of babel how humankind is spread across the face of the earth and And is now speaking in many different languages as we see At the tower of babel god frustrating their efforts to be city builders on their own terms. God will have a city built. He will have. It built according to his terms and no matter what opposition is set up by humankind seeking to do now in In in congress or with one another what was first done in the garden. He will reign and rule supreme

David was charged and convicted first degree murder in march nineteen ninety five and the connection with the slaying of his brother. Michael david melfi found himself in an unusual role. He was both relatives of the victim. And the convicted killer. David malthus attorney neal's aibo told the genesee county jury. The david malfa horrible terrible judgment but he denied his client. David melfi killed his brother. Michael yet there was no evidence that david tried to help his brother. Michael who was stabbed forty five times. The jury heard the claim. The david malki was guilty of no more than being an accessory after the fact to a murder because he was not directly involved in the killing mel fees trial attorney cast doubt on an alleged accomplice in the brutal murder. His name was patrick again. Kenny who accepted a plea bargain and testified against mouthy at the jury trial in flint michigan. Can he plead to a second degree murder charge. He testified under oath that he and david melfi plan to kill michael melfi and other family members if necessary so they could take their family van and fleet of florida or texas kimmy told flint please detectors that michael malki was lured into the basement where he kenny tried to slid michael malfeasance throat but was unable to win. Michael began to fight back kenny. Then call david melfi to the basement to help him during the struggle. Patrick kennedy testified that the brother david melfi provided a knife and how down his twin brother as ken. Kenny stabbed him repeatedly. Forty five times in all it's a useful exercise to look back at the book of genesis chapter four and the new international version of the bible now able kept flocks and cain worked in the soil. And of course at time cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the lord enable also brought an offering fat portions from some of the first born of his. The lord looked with favor unable and is offering but kane but on cain and his offerings in not look with favor so cain was very angry and his face was downcast. Then the lord said to cain. Why are you angry. Why is your face. John kass do what is right. You will not be accepted but if you do do not do. it's right. Sin is crouching at your door. It desires to have you but you must rule over it. Now cain said to his brother abel. Let's go out to the field while they were there in the field kane attacked his brother abel and killed them then the lord said to cain. Where's your brother able. I don't know he replied. And my brother's keeper the lord said what have you done. Listen your brother's blood. Cries out to me from the ground. It is downright spooky that the story of david and michael melfi is nearly identical to the first recorded murder found in the bible like cain. David melfi was jealous of his twin brother who had animosity towards his parents also like kane confronted by his father. Adam about the killing of his brother kane told his dad adam that his brother abel laid on the ground with many wounds kane told his father he was not sure that he inflicted any of wounds especially fatal ones simple terms. Cain denied the obvious and he refused to accept responsibility for the death of his brother abel. This was not just to his father but to god who confronted him and punished him with isolation unfathomable to me donder. Stand that high school. Kids could demonstrate such talapity this new age case of cain and abel still shocks me today
#2 "What is Torah?" with Traci Rhoades - burst 03
"Because I'm speaking broadly of the culture around Israel of which, you know Israel to some extent as a part, but I wanted to share and read a little bit of that prayer to you and then highlight just a couple of things so I'm not going to read the whole thing. Don't worry, but may the fury of my Lord's heart be quieted down towards me May The God Who is not known be quiet and toward me May the goddess who is not known he quieted toward me May the god whom I know or do not know be quieted toward me May the goddess off. I know or do not know be quieted toward me May The God Who has become angry with me. Be quiet and toward May the goddess who has become angry with me be quiet or in ignorance. I have eaten that forbidden of my God in ignorance. I have set foot on that prohibited by my goddess. Oh Lord. My transgressions are many greater my sins. Oh God. My transgressions are many greater mice in the track question that I have committed indeed. I do not know the sin that I have done indeed. I do not know the Forbidden thing that I have eaten indeed. I do not know the prohibited place on which I have set foot in DMV do not know the Lord and the anger of his heart looked at me the God and the Rage of his heart confronted me when the goddess was angry with she made me become ill the god whom I know or do not know his oppressed me took us who might know or do not know his place suffering upon me. Although I am constantly looking for help. No one takes me by the hand when I weep they do not come to my side I utter lament but off One hears. I am troubled. I am overwhelmed. I cannot see oh my God merciful one. I addressed to you the prayer ever inclined to me. I kissed the feet of my goddess. I crawled before they you. Oh my god. Transgressions are 7 x 7 removed my transgressions. Oh, my goddess transgressions are 7 x 7 remove my transgression remove my transgressions and I will sing your praise me your part like the heart of a real mother be quiet and toward me like a real mother and a real father may have be quieted torbet. That's the world. They don't know who the God is they don't know who they've offended. They don't know what they've done and they have no clue how to make it right and into this world God speak and gives Torah and says, this is who I am. This is what I expect. This is how to live and make things right all of a sudden we see that even Torah would have been seen as gray maybe a little bit different than Christians or used to and I would love your take on Thursday. Mare and how you interpret Torah but it's into this context that Torah breaks in is something totally different something totally new. Yeah. I want to say I love where you took that because I'm listening Thursday. It's going okay. I mean this sounds like a very religious prayer but this person is completely fixated on themselves. It's a completely off absolute cystic like self-obsessed begging prayer and you know, I don't want to invalidate anybody's emotional experience except that this is a person who is disconnected from reality because they're you know, just completely absorbed with this religious idea of like, okay, I have these transgressions and I need I need my atonement. I need to get things better. I need this that you know, and you're right Torah is an amazing contrast to that because we're being invited into where May Getting a covenant a relationship a marriage between Heaven and Earth, which is about going. Well. Maybe it's a mistake to say it's about going Beyond those kinds of self-obsessed pretty things unless you get Beyond those very infantile religious conceptions. Then there's no chance of anything. Well and in the in this context in this world, I've heard described as the great symbiosis the gods expected at least in this ancient conception of the Gods expected to be taken care of and in return they took care of you and so it was very fundamentally about survival and about self and I love that you highlighted that because I think we see something very different Endora. What what Jen saying do you is that how you see the ancient world and extremely, you know, I immediately went to the Cain Abel conflict. Do you see the world as a selfish place in Georgia? Incomes God capital G and he says I'm going to offer you a way that is community. I'm going to offer you a way that is more than about survival. But I'm not being together being together with me being together with one another is that is that an accurate? Because I like the way she refers to that that this this world is in existence. And the the Creator comes in and says now, let's bring order. Let's bring community and come back to the word Community again. So I'd flip that around pretty radical because the the creators always here and the the

"abel" Discussed on The Jordan B. Peterson Podcast
"That's pretty much the story of Cain and Abel. And it's a hell of a story as far as I can tell and I think it's worth thinking about pretty much forever. Because there's so many it's so many has so many facets and I think the most usefully revealing of those facets is the potential for the story once understood to shed light on not your own failure not even on your rejection by being. Let's say but by the but on proclivity to murder the best and the best in you for revenge upon that violation because what that means and we know that knowledge of good evil entered the world so to speak with Adam and Eve's transgression is that now not only does humanity have to contend with tragedy and suffering and even the unharvested fruits of proper sacrifice but with the introduction of real malevolence into the world. So there's the fall into history and then there's the discovery of sacrifice as a medication for the fall and there's a counter position which is the emergence of malevolence as the enemy of proper sacrifice. And that's where we left at the end of Cain and Abel and that's the end of that lecture..
"abel" Discussed on The Jordan B. Peterson Podcast
"So back to genesis world. We already up to genesis. Four and Adam knew eve his wife and she conceived and Bear Kane and said I have gotten a man from the Lord now this is after Adam and eve have been chased out of the Garden of Eden Right. So what's really cool about this? I really think that the Cain and Abel stories the most profound story I've ever read especially given that it's you can tell it and fifteen seconds. I won't because I tend not to tell stories and fifteen seconds as you may have noticed but but you can read the whole thing that quickly and it's so densely packed that I just can't. It's it's it's actually unbelievable to me that it can be that densely packed. Okay so the first thing is that Adam and eve or not the first to human beings can enable are the first to human beings because Adam and eve were made by God and they were born in paradise. It's like what kind of human beings are those. You don't know any human beings like human beings aren't born in paradise and made by God. Human beings are born of other human beings right. And so that's the first thing and it's post fall out in the world we're out in history now we're not in some archetypal beyond although we are still to some degree not to the degree that was the case with the story of Adam and Eve we've already been thrown out of the garden. We're already self conscious role radio awake. We're already covered. We're already working. We're full fledged human beings. And so you have the first. Two human beings can enable prototypical human beings. So what's cool? Is that humanity enters history at the end of the story of Adam and eve and then the archetypal patterns human behavior are instantaneously presented. It's it's it's absolutely mind boggling. And it's not a great. It's not a very nice story right. So they're brothers their hostile brothers they. They've got their their hands around each other's throats so to speak or at least that's the case in one direction. So it's a it's a story. The first two human beings engage in a fratricidal struggle that ends in the death of the best one of them. That's the story of human beings in history and that and that doesn't give you nightmares. You didn't understand the damn story now in in these hostile brother stories which are very very common often. The older brother Cane is used. This is very true in the Bible. But it's true in all sorts of folktales and all sorts of stories of all sorts for that matter. See the older brother has some advantages. He's the older brother in agricultural community. The older brother generally inherited the land not the younger brothers and the reason for that was that well. Let's say you have like eight sons and you have enough land to support a bit of a family and you divide it among your son's then they have eight sons and they divided among their aid signs. It's like soon. Everyone has a little postage stamp that they can stand on and starved to death on. And so that just doesn't work so you you you you hand the land down in the piece to the eldest son and that's just how it is. It's tough luck for the rest of them but at least they know they're going to have to go and make their own way. It's not fair but there's no way of making it fair. Well so the oldest son has some you might say. He has an additional stake in the stability and the stability of the current hierarchy. He has more of a stake in the status quo so that makes them more of an emblematic represent representative of the status quo and perhaps more likely to be blind in its favor. It's something like that. So that motif creeps up very frequently in the hostile brothers archetypal struggle. So cain fits this story of Cain and Abel fits this pattern because Cain is the one who won't budge won't move. He's stubborn whereas the younger son who's able is often the one who's more not so much of a revolutionary but perhaps more of a balance between the revolutionary and the traditionalist something like that whereas the older son tends to be more traditionalist authoritarian at least in these metaphorical representations and Adam knew eve his wife. And she conceived in barricade and said I've gotten a man from the Lord so there's the first human being Kane it's like I told you that the message Thought that mankind was made out of the blood of the worst demon that the great goddess of chaos could imagine. Well the first human being is a murderer and only a murderer murder of his own brother and so you know Old Testament. That's a hell of a harsh book and you might think well. Maybe that's a little bit to bear and then you might think yeah and maybe it's true too so that's something to think about human beings you know like they're amazing creatures and to think about us as a plague on the planet is its own kind of bloody catastrophe malevolent. Low quasi genocidal metaphor. But that doesn't mean that we're not without our problems and the fact that this book that set sits at the cornerstone of our culture would present. The first man was a murderer of his brother is something that should really set you back on your heels and again she bear his brother. Able Abel was a keeper of sheep. But CAIN was a tiller of the ground there you see a very old representation. There's able there. And he's got his sheep up on the Altar Kane is bringing Sheaf of wheat and. I don't know exactly what's happening here with the blood or to Ray. Perhaps it's something like that but the overall impression of the images that something transcendent is communicating with this sacrifice. You see that's a you think. How primitive you know how primitive. These people were sacrificing to their. God it's like you know those people weren't stupid and this is not primitive. Whatever it is. It's not primitive sophisticated beyond belief because the idea as already pointed out is that you could sacrifice something of value and that that would have transcendent utility and that is by. No means unsophisticated idea. In fact it might be the Great Lakes that human beings ever came up with. It's an answer to the problem. That's put forward in the story of Adam and Eve right because we became self conscious and then we discovered the future and we knew we were going to die and then we knew we were vulnerable and then we became ashamed and then we develop the knowledge of good and evil and then we got thrown out of paradise is like that's a big problem. So what the hell are you going to do about it? Sacrifice that's hypothesis. Well that's a hell of a hypothesis man. That's what we're doing. You made plenty of sacrifices even to sit in this theater and many people made plenty of sacrifices to have a theater like this existed. Many people made sacrifices so that we could actually freely engage in the dialogue that we're engaging in in a theater like this and so it's like all of this is built on sacrificing sacrifice. Bloody well better work because we do not have a better idea sacrifice. What's the counter position murder theft. So let's go with sacrifice showy and perhaps we won't consider it's so damn primitive because it's not so primitive and again she barry his brother. Abel enable was a keeper of sheep and Cain was a tiller of the ground now. Some people have read into this eternal battle between herdsmen and agriculturalists which raged in the American West for example because the herdsman liked to have their herds sheep cattle goal wherever they were going to go and of course the agricultural the farmers like to have things fenced off and so and the agriculturalists actually one in the final analysis but anyways able is a keeper of sheep. And that's interesting because that makes a shepherd and I think that's part of the critical issue here because shepherd talked a little bit about shepherds before you know if you look at Michelangelo's Statue of David which is another staggering. Work May Not David. He's no trivial figure of Stephen. Do slice slice. Goliath in Goliath is like the giant of the patriarchal enemy. It's something like that. And you know Middle Eastern Shepherds. They had to take care of sheep and their edible and the lambs are very vulnerable and there are lots of wild animals around. It wasn't like England in the sixteenth century. It was like the reliance you know you had a slingshot or a stick or some damn thing and so your job was to keep the sheep organized and not let them eat by the lions alone. And so you had to have a clue and be tough and self reliant and all of those things he had to be tough and self. Reliant had to be able to take care of a lot of vulnerable things at able to do on your own and so that's built into the shepherd metaphor and it's you know it's a tough thing for. It's not a great metaphor for modern people because we tend to think of the shepherd. Is someone like little Lord Fauntleroy like some little certainly not a lion killing hyper masculine lion killing monster. That's not a shepherd. Shepherd sort of dances around. And you know it's not. That's not the metaphor here. That's that's that's not the metaphor here. So Abel was a keeper of sheep. But CAIN was it tiller of the ground and in the process of time it came to pass that cain brought of the fruit of the ground and offering to the Lord okay so he's participating in this sacrifice ritual enable. He brought of the first things of his flock of the fat thereof and the Lord had respect onto able and to his offering. You don't know why that is. This is built in ambiguity. I think now I think there's textual hints but I'm not sure able brought the first links of his flock and of the fat thereof. Okay so so. What does that mean? Well he brought high quotes high-quality sacrifice. You don't know that Abel's sacrifices low quality because it doesn't say able gone some wilted lettuce and then birdied. He doesn't say that but but there isn't a sentence there that talks about how high quality cain sacrifices but in any case the Lord had respect onto Abel and his offering. So there's a hint that Abel's putting a little bit more into the whole sacrificial thing than than Cain but there's also a hint that maybe God is just like liking you a little better than these liken him and that's I think useful from a literary perspective because there is that arbitrariness about life you know with my own children for example one of them had I would say heat things. Come easy to him..
Lydia Millet talks about “A Children’s Bible”
"A little bit about the story. You're telling in a children's Bible so this is Tale of a group of children mostly teenagers who are being forced by their parents to spend their summer vacation together in a rented robber. Baron kind of mansion in the country and to strongly resent and disliked their parents and in the midst of this storm comes kind of ethics storm and with it. A great flood and chaos descends on the House that they're living in and the children's sort of rebel against their parents. Okay so if you weren't clued in by the great flood you might be clued in by the name of the narrator. Ev Or eve think is about fifteen that you are doing something allegorical here with the Bible of the title. What function does the Bible have in the story? The stories that used to be often made into Bible stories for children the parts of the Bible that were translated in especially the forties fifties and sixties for children to read are selected parts of the Bible for example the book of revelation the revelation to John is typically left out of children's bibles. It's not left out of my children's Bible but it was deemed too harsh and dark and bloody I think for children to to read and so in in Children's Bible stories that that used to proliferate aren't aren't as common now often illustrated you would have you know the the Noah's Ark Story and various more child friendly pieces of the Old Testament and the new and so I've used to structure the plot kind of some of the events from those Bible stories and and then also there is a little boy in the book. The baby brother of of Av who narrates it. Who's given a children's Bible? They come from a secular family in New York and he's given a Bible by one of the mothers that they're sequestered with in this big summer house and so he starts to read it and he doesn't really understand it. His favourite books are frog toad. George as they should be as they should be so he sort of interprets it in his own little boy little secular boy way in so. There's a sort of also a parallel there so it's his Bible the Children's Bible. It's also it's also sort of the framework for for the plot of the novel. It's interesting when you talk about child friendly as defining what ends up in a children's Bible because the stories of course are still fairly terrifying. I remember getting up to Cain and Abel in in my own children's Bible and then being like all right. I think I'm done here with this year. Book of Tales. There's a lot of brutality. There's there's not sort of prophetic Apocalyptic Gore of of the book of revelation. But yeah of course. Even the you know. The Noah's Ark story is extraordinary and apocalyptic in its own way. Of course it's sort of has a happy ending if you want to read it that way where animals get saved and the good people get to live on after the flood. Talk a little bit about the children of title because as you said. They're they're not quite children. I mean they're they're mostly teenagers and they seem very sophisticated right. So I'm never too interested in developmental. Vera similitude with characters like they are sort of hybrid child's adults as teenagers really are but the kids in this book. They use a lot of swears you know they're harsher language in judge mental but at the same time they're prater naturally articulate to a certain degree and I think because in a sense I wanted to respect their voices I wanted to make them authoritative in sort of straight guys in the book against the chaotic collective of the parents who are who are objectified generally for I hope humorous effect but they're they're sort of unable to manage their families in their lives and the teenagers and a couple of young children who make up sort of band of roving humans at the center of the story they armature in you know in certain ways essentially. This is a book envisioned for adults to read. And I don't I don't feel like I need to sort of talk down to to either children and teenagers or to those who are reading the book by by Infanta. Leising these because you know. We all know how resilient teenagers can be. And how selectively brilliant they can be whilst also having these blind
3 Steps to Getting Hired After a Layoff - Abel Lomas
"Today's tip comes from my friend able wellness able talked with me in episode fifty nine the sales success stories podcast and recently got laid off. Here's what he actually did too quickly. Land his current role as an enterprise account executive at workfront. Hey salespeople if you're listening to this you may have recently been laid off or you're living in fear that it's about to happen. Krona viruses changed all of our lives. I was laid off recently. Was Lucky enough to start a new gig just before things got really ugly. I want to give you three steps to help you. Land the next GIG and I'll go into more detail on each number one be excited. Not Down Attitude. Is Everything number to be clear about what you're looking for. Think about the non negotiable number three manage the process from networking to interviews and offers. Let's break each of these down said number one. Be excited you ask. How can I be excited? I just lost my job. Well the moment layoff is communicated to you. It is in the past it happened. It's over stain in the past like running in the mud. It's exhausting and he may never reach your destination in the future. You'll land in a better opportunity than where you were before but don't get lost in the clouds. You have to put in the work that will get you to your ideal outcome being the version of the present that will help you achieve landing in a better spot. This is all about mindset. Wake up early. Get some exercise. Have some breakfast of you like but most importantly have a plan every single day and work the plan. That is how you'll get what you deserve number to be clear about what you're looking for and prioritize it. It's important to find what you're looking for. And they're gonNA be negotiable items and non-negotiables. You need to come up with your top two or three things that you aren't willing to negotiate than name them prioritize them for me it was culture followed by opportunity and in that order culture was so important to me that I wrote a definition of great culture in a post on linked in. This helped me in a couple of ways people who are really interested in me. Read my post in advance and proactively disgusted with me. People who are either less interested or just didn't find. It allowed me to tell them. I believe with conviction. I send a link to my post and my followup which always let them impressed and wanting more they knew I was serious. And this wasn't negotiable with regard to my second item opportunity. This had to do a short and long-term expectations of income. This was easy discussing conversation and would be taboo to discuss in a public forum like a linked and Post. The order is important because in my case if he didn't have the culture I was looking for the income potential. Just didn't matter. So what are your top negotiable. Items Number three manage the process in the current environment. This is difficult but the process doesn't change companies are hiring you desert lennon a better place than you were before you had the right mindset and he know what you want. So how'd you manage the process to get their here? Are Few thoughts make a couple of lists? One List is a list of people you love working with and the other lists has all the companies that you'd love to work for. This should be guided on your top non-negotiable items second start reaching out to the list of people immediately. Be Open and honest about the situation. They'll have empathy or they wouldn't be on your list. Tell them what you're looking for your non-negotiables and ask them who they'd recommend you connect with make it easy for them. Track your progress down your list of people and the referrals. You WanNa make sure that you thank them along the way or let them know. If you haven't heard from the person they referred you to make sure to tell them about any companies. You're hiring on your consideration list. You never know who they might know. That might not have been obvious. An looking on linked in third. This process will connect you with people. You either didn't think about or people you haven't met. I realize I'm an extrovert in. You may not be but this was my favorite part. I met so many interesting people during this process. Sometimes we laughed. Sometimes we cry. Many of the connections ended up having nothing to do with my career but I was so thankful to meet. These people hear their stories and share mine. And I'm willing to bet you'll have a very similar experience next. I'd be surprised at this point. You haven't landed interviews by now but you should have gained greater intelligence in the target companies. You want to work for Italy. Tempting to apply online but most likely not get you anywhere the process of networking finding someone inside the company who can champion. Your cause is critical especially in a down market. Think about it. What are your chances if you're one of one thousand or more online applicants versus one? That's walked down the hall or sent via slack with a personal recommendation in an internal champion. I think the answer is obvious next. The rest is all salesmanship in managing the process. People not remember details of your interview but they'll remember how you made them feel. Make them feel good. Do your research before meeting them in your follow up remind them what made them feel good in their words. Because it's not about you. It is about them managed next steps and stay on top of the process. This will help you get offers you want. You will succeed. You deserve landed a better situation than you were before so in summary be excited and act for the purpose of achieving the future you want second be clear about your non-negotiables and third manage every detail process.
"abel" Discussed on Behind The Screen
"Only reason we didn't include that is there was a last minute legal issue where we were worried that maybe did actually partially sing on some of them and we decided to not go down that road. It was also a scene. That's very very funny but wherever we put it it seemed to derail the story and so that was kind of regretful that we didn't have that in their the relationship between ten stark. Jeff Lowe is really really rich and we did go down that road and did include a lot more. But the problem is that we didn't have the ending to that story really It's still ongoing. Tim Stark is the party ways. He's back at his place in Indiana which is actually only twenty five minutes from me here as I speak. And he's facing severe severe pressure from the Indiana Attorney General's after him and he's been inspected and he's really He's hanging on by thread. And so I think you know that was a that was a through line that we wish we could have come to a conclusion because I think it would have been. It's quite rich and there's a lot more material in there that I think would have really helped it. I think also we probably could have done a lot more with Jeff Lowe given enough time I don't think there were too many scenes that we left out. But there's just a lot more about that man that we could have probably gone into. We maintain a list that we call the orphan list. And it was really just all these scenes that we knew were lovely and we'd love to get in but but couldn't and I looked at it recently and I thought you know what we did pretty good job cramming. Most of these in you know they weren't too many that that I thought. How could that have gone so so? I'm pleased that we you know and and it is. It is a kitchen sink in terms of like when you think about the structure of it says somebody did sent me a parody song and they said like here's the plot of Tiger King was a little song they sang and it's like he mentioned three things. I think you know what that kind of is the whole plot. But there are so many side threads and weird digressions. That keep you entertained? And kind of just may be distracted from the fact that the story itself is is actually quite you know quite simple could say say it in a few sentences So you know I think I think we we were pretty good at figuring out how to kind of. Let's go down this crazy road you know. And it doesn't matter if it's a red herring because look what happening. I think we had enough perspective on it to say like it's okay. You WanNa see this. This is just kind of worth talking about. During the course of the series you meet a lot of characters and I mean some of them are just unbelievable stories which of the characters was the most challenging for you to tell their story and how right I mean. Joe Is challenging. Because there's so much he says so much and so much so much of it conflicts. He conflicts with himself so it was hard. We just decided early on. Let's just establish him as somebody who you love to watch. But you can't trust what he says. And I think we figured if you can kind of get that understanding about him you'll relaxed to a certain extent because you understand when he says something it's like. We always joked that everything joe says. There's always a kernel of truth in it and it did turn out to be true. I mean most things. He said they might have been complete lies. But it's like well. Yeah there's this and sometimes it was. It was Absolute Gospel Truth. He was challenging just. Because it's just you know Joe Joe and it's just hard to wrap your head around him at all and then Carol was. Also a challenge by your own admission. She sort of a socially awkward person. She had a hard life and has gone through some hard things and his a super dedicated super focused person. And you know she's maybe hard for people to relate to. I think is one problem. And so as the show progressed. She became a little bit more withdrawn and Howard started speaking more for her. But we really wanted Carol's voice. You want to make sure she. She remained a presence. One way that you really gave us a chance to get to know them was also just showing us what their homes look like the decor the way they interface with their animals beyond the interviews. Did you have a lot of that material to work with by and large? No I mean Joe was more or less an open book but the other characters. I think they would let people in once and not really. I don't feel like it happened very often so Damien Drake who is the DP would always hop on that. Make sure you got lots of lots of fun. Cut aways and lots of details that are of course you know when you're an editor. Thank you so much. And so we buy large. Didn't have free access. And we we get that you know you wanNA respect people's personal space so that was a gift when we could get it and in some cases we really couldn't get it. I mean for example in Docs place. You really. Don't see behind the scenes. I mean we would see behind the scenes at Joe's place and and certainly carols place. She was an open book. She showed US her hospital. All these different variant. Here's where the food is. And here's what the Labatt's are and she showed us all that stuff But DOC was much more you know. This is my space that people are supposed to see. And that's that's what he would. He would allow US access to so it varied but yeah. It's always great to be able to see that and really it gives you a lot of insight when you see how people live. Exotic is how many people know him email off this form to the Federal Election Commission last Friday announcing his intent to run for president as an independent Joe Joe Exotic for the people of America House. That would you take us through the process of editing? The story as it was still unfolding the first few episodes I mean. Some of the scenes hadn't changed literally in years. But as new information was coming in we were constantly tweaking improving and adding music working on this first few episodes but so sort of like there was a there was a whole half of us that we're kind of continuing to improve the first part of the story but then as other stuff was coming in revelations about these different characters in all these double crossing that was going on there was other editors who were sort of zooming in on that and specializing on that and in the end when we finally kind of got everything in place a lot of kind of touched different ones just out of necessity you know. Somebody would get completely swamped with some brand new thing. And so I would take a pass on. You know episode seven and address a couple. Things were confusing so we we pass them around quite a bit. Which is strange. I'd never really worked on such a large project with such a big team of editors and so we really were all having a really pay attention to. Why is this in here? What is this doing? That's right? We tried it this way you know two months ago and it and it had this effect so it was super super challenging that way so while the trial was unfolding. Yes you had people down there. And they were sending you material every day of the filmmakers by and large covered most of the trial. I would say I think they were in their Eric. Good and Rebecca Shalin. They were both down in. I believe it was Oklahoma's where the trial was. They were there in person and We're knowledgeable about everything that was going on. And then of course they were outside with crew grabbing whoever they could and while they were down there they were also shooting anything else they could you know maximizing the amount of time so we got a lot of footage that came in you know unfortunately or maybe. Fortunately I'm thinking They did not allow cameras in the courtroom. Which is which is typical. So I'm kind of thankful because if they did that would have been another of things so in a way it was good to have our our hand forced on that and to to kind of simplify it down to just the broad strokes of what the trial was that we could convey through basically interviews people who were there. That's how that was covered mentioned that the reality TV producer was interviewed late in the production. Would you describe why he was added to the story? Well I think the initial reason. We reached out to that fellow. Rick Why am I spacing on his last name? The guy in a cowboy hat. Everybody knows him as and he He seemed to be involved. He had been accused of setting the fire all a couple people. had had accused him of that so it was a natural choice to reach out to me and say people are saying this about you Is this true? And so I think that was the initial reason why they filmed him. Chris Smith actually flew off to where he's someplace out in like Finland or someplace like that and came back for like three or four hours of really bonkers material and he ended up being kind of like a bit of a degree course of the project because he just as great voice and great storytelling style as he has a background in working on all those shows like hard copy and and so he a godsend because when he came at least it was a voice of reason that we could insert into this whole thing and a and a different perspective. Because you know you talk to Joe and you're GONNA get a lot of different answers and it's hard to parse through all what would actually happen and didn't so it was good to have some corroborating evidence and he also got sucked into the story and became part of the story so it was super interesting that it worked out that way but that was not an expectation that we had and I think that's true of a lot of material that that has happened with this with this project is somebody would go off film something. It would seem like a dead end and then they would come back and he'd say oh my gosh or there'd be some archival footage that would do something similar so lot of moments like that but Yeah it was. I think kind of dumb luck that you know. It was an expensive trip to fly across the ocean and interview this guy just to find out if he was part of it but it was a huge a very smart call that the production got him. So and then Joe's Nemesis Carol was she always in the story from the start yeah She had been interviewed even before a Joe was. I believe the first interview with her I believe was in twenty fourteen so it predated me by several years and so yeah she was one of the folks who had been interviewed as kind of an expert on you know certainly tigers. She certainly wanted to go to people that you would go to. If you wanted to ask questions about tigers and so yeah she had been involved very early on and they continued to interview her over time over the over the span of you know about five years so got lots of different interviews sometimes on the same stuff certainly with different haircutters. Which always makes editing challenge? So yes she had been a essential part of it for a long time because you know her her message you know that. Tiger should not be in captivity. I mean that was that was very central to the general idea of the series from the beginning. Our mission is to ban the private possession of these magnificent animals. She wanted to shutdown zoo. And he wanted her.

"So the content of anything is comics. Any of these things but you know you have books like out on the wire I just like to call it a comeback but people are like. Oh it's a graphic novel but I'm like it's nonfiction. What's graphic non. That SOUNDS DUMB. So you know and the word graphic now. I think has been sort of ratcheted down from what it used to be. But graphic used to mean sexy or full of violence or something and it doesn't mean that anymore really. People don't interpret it that way as much as they used to. But that's always been a bit of a graphic memoir. What does that mean yeah? It's tricky just. If you could just call it comex it would be easier but if you WANNA use sort of more all income passing term and that's more neutral you can call it graphic narrative okay. We'll close out. I'd love to talk about what you're doing. Now the creative focus workshop and is that a pivot or just a continuation. Oh It's definitely pivot. I mean I wasn't teaching online classes before. We're doing coaching. Which is what I'm doing now. So the credit focus workshop really stems out of out on the wire in fact when I was winding down the podcast I was sort of trying to figure out what the next thing was going to be what I was. GonNa be doing and I surveyed the people in the group the group that I talked about where they work shopping materials and I said well so power to do something else. What would you guys need from me and ask them and ask my email list and I was really looking for answers like well. We should something about character development. Or let's do a deep dive into you know interviewing or some of the questions that you've asked today really but those strongest sort of message. I got back was. I can't get my work done. I totally underwater. I'm procrastinating all the time. All of this stuff where. There's just a lot of a lot of people feeling very out of control of their work process and their creative life and I've done a lot of big projects and I. I do have a pretty good sense of project management and how to get stuff done and all these things and so I thought oh I can help with that and I don't know that I really knew what I was starting because it's been amazing. It's been really great. The people I work with are super cool. But there's a lot of stuff that you know. My initial impulse was like I'll just do a project management course which I did but it almost instantly turned to issues with the inner critic and like all this other stuff you know very very internal personal stuff about how does it feel to be a creative person and how do you not get overwhelmed by everything and all kinds of stuff and so really in in concert with many cohorts of students now. Hundreds of students I have developed this program sort of a group. Coaching program with a robust community. That goes with it. What it's about is creative productivity like it's kind of about getting your work done but the problem with that is that the notion of productivity is is all about just cramming more stuff in and I am not in favor of that so I struggle to figure out how to talk about it but basically it's about creating a more sustainable and resilient creative life how do you build sustainability and resilience into what you're doing do more of it. Do it better be happier with it. Get it out in the world all that stuff. So that's what the creative focus workshop is about like a lot of systems and mindset work and things like that definitely there's systems there's also a lot of strategic work really like prioritization. Work where you're thinking through. What is really important to me. And how do I make sure that happens? So getting very very clear on what you want to happen.

He slaughtered his family for a Bulgarian webcam girl
"Margaret and Chad provided a nice life for their three boys. They lived in an expansive home. And had all the trappings of affluence cars. Video Games and horses yes. Margaret was a horse person as everyone knows the garage loves loves horse people centers. She adopted in rehabilitated. A retired racehorse named lady and even after lady died she still went to the stables. Abel's Daily to work with other horses. Margaret worked as a client operations manager at a healthcare company Chatham Motto was a Clinical Aw Pharmacists who worked for CVS and who also had a second job. He was a self professed computer guru. One of his CO worker said. The Chad was very proud of his sons. But there are rumors in this case in some references to it by two people close to the case did Chad data motto. The father was a quite difficult man and most compeer people are a side. Note Jason. The oldest of the three boys was not what Chad's biological son. He adopted him when he married Margaret. This was way back when Jason was just three years old. It doesn't seem that Jason was as close to his brothers as they were to each other. According to Jason. They were known as the football family because they went to every Florida. GATORS home game together. But Jason no longer lived at home and he had moved on with his own life. So the true brother's on the half brothers. Brothers grant. And cody they. They seem to be inseparable. Cody is just one year older than grant and they did everything together. They were on the weightlifting team together at Timber Creek high school and planned on buying matching. BMW's and living in the family home well after their parents retired to their other house which was located in Tennessee. One of their favourite activities involved shooting air soft rifles and real guns as well. and You I can see on grant Amato's facebook profile picture and he is trying to look like a militant bad ass with a big rifle cody grant were on a competitive air. Soft team called remedy. The brothers even went on to enroll in nursing school together. This after grant graduated from the University of Central Florida even early on as seems that cody was somewhat of a caretaker for grant he we had it. Altogether while grant was more scattered in June of two thousand eighteen. Grant was caught stealing medication from his is job at advent health which is located in Orlando Florida. Do we know what kind of medication he stole. I'm going to get into that right now. The hospital staff noticed eight empty vials of propofol and two rooms. Where grant was working he had taken vials they? They were worth together. Combined amount of two thousand sixty seven dollars. These were taken from a storage machine that required a thumbprint to access us. The machine he was captured on surveillance video which was reviewed by the hospital. After the propofol was discovered missing he was seen zien accessing the machine and putting the vials in his pocket. This amounted to grand theft. Hospital officials confronted grant. Who told them them? According to the police report that quote he hit administered the drugs to patients who were not being adequately relaxed by doctor ordered medicine in other words he thought patients needed more drugs than what they were being given so he wasn't stealing drugs for himself to us but to use is on patients. That's his statement. That's his story and he's sticking to it. We don't know for certain administrators believed that this was not the first the incident of this kind. He probably had stolen these items before while being questioned a couple of days after he was caught stealing grant apparently said he was suicidal so the police were called. This was on June. twenty-first grant was arrested but they determined that there was not grounds to hold him under Florida's Baker Act which allows an involuntary hold of people deemed to be dangerous to themselves us and for reasons that have never been disclosed. The grand theft charges for stealing propofol were eventually dropped but needless to say grant was out of job. He was fired and as a consequence of this event he was expelled from anesthesiology school as well and his dad who was funding legal representation for his son. Well he was out of a lot of money. This was money that was set up for grants lawyers. Yeah but let's break this down a little bit because a lot of times if if there is a conflict at work work even if it is stealing they normally won't prosecute as long as they get the material back we got the material back. We didn't lose any money and we're going to then sever ever our ties with this individual by fire them. Yeah I mean He. He's he's fired one hundred percent. I don't know what their reasons were for dropping the charges. If you want me to speculate my guess is they probably didn't want his defense of Oh. I was giving them to your patients right to be in the newspapers whether that's what what he was doing with them or not. We just don't know yeah. Stay away from the bad publicity. So grant is unemployed and living with his parents so what did did grant do all day now that he was unemployed of course he did. What any hard working able bodied twenty something American male would do and and of course? I'm being sarcastic. He spent his days gaming and watching porn. This on a site called Cam. Girls Grant soon soon met a Webcam model named Sylvia from Bulgaria. We all can you spell it website for me. Grant began what he felt what was an intimate relationship with this woman. The virtual kind grant lead Sylvia to believe that he was a successful ambitious. Young Professional Personal Gamer. who had his own apartment and drove a BMW? According to the Orlando Sentinel Grant spent about four hours every night. online watching Sylvia dance and model euphemisms for one on one virtual pornographic activity. And of course this cost money in fact the woman's attentions to grant seemed to depend on how much money he paid. Her grant admitted that her shows cost ninety. That's nine zero tokens per minute to view. which he purchased five thousand tokens at a time? For six hundred dollars he he and Sylvia would video chat as well. Grant seemed to think that the woman was his girlfriend eventually. He began sending her clothes using sex toys which Sylvia would model for him often in pornographic videos. How grant paying for all of this? Well we'll we'll get into that in a minute I hang on. Let me get out my porno calculator. Real quick yeah. So that's five thousand. Four hundred tokens an hour and times that by four hours a day or night. That's twenty one thousand. Six hundred tokens a night on my circulating. Say That's a lot of porno. That's two thousand two thousand five hundred ninety two dollars a day or night. However you WANNA swing that Hammer? It would be cheaper to be addicted to meth but remember kids. Don't do math then. In December of two thousand eighteen. I apologized captain Bob when I was reviewing this information and putting together all the math. I don't know why but it popped in my head out of all the things things you could be addicted to. This is a very expensive addiction. L. I guess we'll know why our our show won't continue The Colonel Got Addicted to Meth. Don't do math then. In December of two thousand eighteen cody grant and their friend Jericho. They went on on a trip to Japan. Cody was very nice. He paid at ten thousand dollars for this trip. So cody is paying for the both of them for him and grant but when the boys returned home this is around December fifteenth grant found that his father was very disgruntled. That grant still had. It not landed a job by this point. It's not clear exactly win. The Amato's found out that their son was involved in a virtual relationship with a Webcam girl. Some news reports state that Margaret noticed male showing up for grant from Bulgaria. Yeah and then was horrified lied that her son had given their home address to a t to somebody in the porn business. Let's say right we. We can only imagine what that conversation was like unfortunately for grant though it seems that his parents also discovered something else at some point toward toward the end of two thousand eighteen chat amato discovered that some money was missing and actually this was a lot of money. Grant was stealing stealing money from his own family. Grant told his parents that he spent this money to promote himself on twitch. I'm captain sure or you could inform us. What twitches all because I'm such a loser that I have all this time to do well? I don't know exactly what it is so I thought maybe you might law blah. I don't know much about. I've never been on it. I think people can be very profitable on it. There's many millionaires from an end. I guess what it is is is that you. You're a Gamer. And then people can watch you game al Qaeda they could pay for a subscription so so there are there are people are doing very well. It's it's but it's kind of a the video game world to me. I haven't been into it since Super Super Mario Brothers so I don't really know much about it but it's it's huge. I mean you can So when he saying I'm promoted myself or I'm this could turn into a profession not as a profession but if if it takes off he could become like a multimillionaire like basically like becoming a youtube star or something right I was is gonna save for Dummies like me. The simplest form. It's kind of a social media. Instagram meets Youtube kind of thing. Yeah Four Gaming Guy Merrily yeah so the truth be told though that's not where the money went. He actually blew it all on his very expensive hobby. Or what I would call obsession with Sylvia. Yeah but even if it went to promote himself on this platform it's a it's a big risk because to to become a youtube star or become twitch star. It's very difficult so now thus begins the family meltdown. Okay on December nineteenth two thousand eighteen. The models called nine one one. This was to report grant was missing. He walked out of the House after an argument with Chad and his mother was concerned because he seemed very depressed at this time and she says possibly suicidal in fact Margaret told the the sheriff's office. She told the deputies that she got a text from grant saying he was quote really tired of everything and quote and was quote just just going to handle it his own way. That's as much of the text that I have. But regardless believing that he had been unsuccessful looking looking for work and had shown some instability in connection with the propofol incident right. And he's at school now. He's spending his days. He's like you said playing video games and watching pornography and if the family just knows that he's just up in his room playing video games all day maybe not knowing too much about the pornography but when somebody says I'm tired of it all and that's all they're doing I think that's a bad sign. Well you know she has. His mother has other tax and other information other conversations that were had right that we're not privy to so calling. The police seems like a very smart motherly. Move here in this this spot and December of two thousand eighteen. Cody confided in his girlfriend. Sloan that he was concerned concerned about his brother. He was concerned that grant was going to kill. Everyone is what he said when grant left the home that day. He took refuge at the home of his aunt. This is Donna. Amato with whom. He was very close. She later said that he was looking lost and depressed at her house. Grant slept during the day and stayed up all night. She and her husband hid all of their guns and while grant was with them having been worn by the Amato's that he was possibly suicidal while grant was staying with her Donnas Bank account was hacked and strange charges started showing up. At least that's what she thought. She came to find out that the nephew you she had taken in stole her credit card information and she wasn't the only one according to the Orlando Sentinel pictures of credit it. Cards belonging to grant Amato's grandmother uncle and one of his cousins were found on his computer upset and betrayed Donna on a called her husband's brother grandfather. Chad D'Amato totally out of character. Chad broke down on the phone. He told Donna the he had been forced to remortgage mortgage the family's home to cover one hundred and fifty thousand dollars worth of debt racked up by grant. Donna says quote. He told me on the phone. Yeah I'm going to have to work a few more years than I thought I'd have to but it's okay I'll do it for grant it. I don't want him to go to jail.
University officials push back on US travel ban
"You this week president trump is expected to announce an expansion of his controversial travel ban that prohibits nearly all people from selected countries from traveling to or immigrating to the United States the original travel ban was one of Mr trump's first initiatives upon taking office in focus primarily on Muslim majority countries it took years of court challenges before it was finally up held this latest iteration is focused on a range of countries NPR has confirmed that the seven countries expected to be added to the band are Nigeria Sudan Tanzania Eritrea Kyrgyzstan Myanmar and Belarus indeed some of the countries listed are known for having high visa overstay rates but some of these countries also sends many students to American colleges and universities particularly historically black colleges and universities are H. B. C. use we want to get more perspective on this so we've called on David Wilson he is the president of Morgan state university that's a historically black university in Baltimore Maryland president Wilson thank you so much for joining us I'm a show this is really an honor to talk with you about this so first can I just get your thoughts on the initial travel ban and the reporting that this band is being expanded to the countries that I just named how do you react react to this well when the initial travel ban was proposed we had a quite a few international students of Morgan who were very long and concerned and so my first thought was to pool I international community together to let them know of course that we have one big umbrella at Morgan and everyone fits under that umbrella and so they were very very pleased to hear that but of course you know they were very concerned about what it meant for the continued state in the United States at Morgan we held a roughly ten percent of our nearly eight thousand students SO it Morgan who are international representing sixty countries and of that ten percent about twenty percent of those students are from Nigeria and we have had very very strong ties with the entire continent of Africa for decades not only Morgan but many H. B. C. use the Washington post wrote a feature about Morgan state a couple of months ago and it cited that of foreign students as as an important part of the university's continued stability and growth and I'll just quote here from the peace the peace that foreign students especially from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait are a booming demographic H. B. C. use at Morgan seven hundred thirty eight international students were enrolled in the fall of twenty eighteen are from two hundred and eighty six in two thousand six and the reporter says that the students often pay full tuition a monetary boost for schools that often serve students from low income families relying on financial aid is that true is that many of your international students do pay full tuition that is true and this is been a conscious effort on our part to increase our brand on the international stage we have actually done that very fair well and we're bringing the world to market and a domestic students really appreciate the fact that we have all the different cultures on our campus international students feel very very welcome on the campus to fill that Morgan is a place where they belong and so when I heard the proposed ban that had Nigeria and it I understand that I had a senior administrative a team in Africa they just returned yesterday looking at how we could actually partner with a couple of existing African universities took a number two or three Morgan state to Greece there and so this was really devastating for us to hear and so I don't know who is really advising the administration on some of the policies and I don't know what the motives are but I just don't think this is really good for higher education in America in general and is definitely not good for H. B. C. use before you go I'm we've discussed the fact that many of these international students come with full funding whether it's individual whether it's through foundation support or funds within their countries they're interested in supporting their education is overseas but what benefit would you say it is to the United States to have these international students studying here it is fun of enormous importance to help the students when I campuses because first of all we send a belt with seven hundred fifty thousand or so students every year to study abroad that's a small fraction of all the students when I campuses and therefore you have no ninety five percent or so of all students in American colleges not being expose perhaps to the kind of cultures that exist around the world so when we are able to bring these international students from all walks of the world to our campuses it really in Abel's domestic students on many of whom I have never gone outside of the country to be in environments now with the understand different cultures the understand different histories of the world the engage in robust discussion and debate and everybody wins and when you cut that off I just fear of four which really will happen with regard to our students being in environments where they can go to the cafeteria and sit and at that table you know they have you know five countries represented this David Wilson he's president of Morgan state university that's in a strictly black university in Baltimore Maryland president Wilson thank you so much for talking to us today Michelle thank you for

"And so when I get out of debt debt with your business to don't take. A bunch of investors. If you don't really need them. Taking investors is a great idea for certain businesses. But like the idea that you have made it once you take investors. Nope. Now, you're on the hook. Now, you're working for all of them. And I'm an investor in and I know some friends who are investors to and I'm pretty like hands off. But if people want some help, I'm willing to give advice, but a lot of investors. They're running you. Now, they're running your life. So if you don't have your phone on you, good luck working that out. And that means you're on call for like how long until you sit out. So the very intentional about what you're building very careful with what you say. Yes. To and learn how to say, no, take some practice, man. It's interesting because what I hear overall with your career. It was the similar statement. You said as the first step in your in dietary habits in essence, which was be present be present. The aware. Don't check out. So thank you for that. Hey, the last spoke is just personal and you've hit on a lot of pieces with this of this the things you do here. But this one is the one we're really looking. I mean, obviously, it's all personal. But the things you do just for fun. Just the hobbies the play. There's no this is not productive not productive as far as producing something. Obviously produces joy. Maybe that's it. We're producing joy, what do you do for that area of your life being outside using my body's is a blast than that. Anyone can do that. And experience that joy, the joy that a a squirrel on a telephone wire experiences. Like, that's what I think of when I'm scrambling around those rocks and doing those things that are really thinking about it. I wouldn't be able to do I'd fall, right? And at some point you kind of get into that flow. So I love getting into that that flow state in one way that I do that is I've been a musician like I said my whole life. I play an have over twenty instruments or thirty instrument. And and as I was saying, it's like sometimes I play the banjo because I feel badly about myself, and I wanna feel better. And I always feel better when I play an instrument that I don't think I'm good at unless I'm recording myself and a bunch of other people are watching it live zone or whatever. But sometimes failing in front of other people is fun too. It's funny. It's silly. It's hilarious sometimes and and I did musical comedy for for a long time back in college. And then after and and part of the part of the funniest thing. The best memories come from the mess ups. They come from the embarrassing moments often run hundreds or thousands of people. So so I think that's fun. I think it's a combination of challenge and growth and purpose and. I it's it takes some challenge. Right. It's like you don't just like pop up on the surfboard hid gigantic wave and start live streaming all of your deepest fears and intimate things that everybody. But you know, that performing is fun to me. And if I don't do it for long enough, I miss it. And I've made some mistakes that I've learned from over the years performing too much burning myself out taking too much time off and everything in between. You got to experience the edges. I think go too far you can find yourself. You can find yourself hopefully, eventually at the sweet spot again perfect place to end right there, man. Thank you, very giving us just a behind the scenes, thanks for your authenticity and your in your heart in this. It has been a joy, and I leave inspiring. Thanks so much right on. Thank you so much for having me. And thanks for listening. Friends.

"Abel's? Hi, everybody Dennis Prager here. The issues. Our every Tuesday third hour. One of our sponsors is aim MAC, and they have a project here because they realized that there is a movement to. Universalize Medicare in other words, Medicare for everybody illegal immigrants would be included. But even aside from that, just everybody. So obviously, what is that going to do to Medicare since the country does not have unlimited funds. It will be effect Medicare substantially, and you will have the inevitable that you haven't any socialized medical system. And that is. A sort of a quota system. What you can receive for what Billeness at what age. So they have a project, and it is very full. You just go to don't touch my Medicare dot com. Help MAC protect Medicare don't touch my Medicare dot com. Is the website? I'm Dennis Prager the St. L timid issues Howard is about nationalism nationalism is a good thing. It can be a bad thing. Because everything can be a bad thing. Religion could be a good thing. Could be a bad thing. Secularism could be a good thing. Could be a bad thing. There's no there's no such thing that there's no guarantee of goodness on this planet. It's project. But nationalism is a terrific idea because it's a trans ethnic trans racial. Those who loathed nationalism love race. That's the irony or the inevitability if you will. All right. John Queens, New York New York City day here. Hi, john. Hey, Dennis get to talk to you. Again. How you doing? Thank you. Dennis. I understand everything you're saying, and I tend to agree with everything you're saying, I also tend to roll some very crowds who are very diff- diverging opinions about this. And you know, the point that they've made to me that I want to understand from you is don't you think that in the world, and maybe today, this is impossible or even realistic like deal world someday in future, we do have a world with no borders between peoples and by that I don't mean physical border that need. I don't think that the. What do you do mean, physical borders? What do you mean, you don't mean physical voters? Well, but that's not necessarily what I'm referring to. Well, you are I don't understand. Wait, wait. Wait, wait. I'm happy to answer your question. But I can't understand it. You said in an ideal world would be great if they were no borders. I don't mean physical borders that then what do you mean? Okay. No, no. I obviously there has to be physical borders we geographical border. Thanks that. Right. So why would you right? All right. So what would your ideal world change? What was the same way that you're saying that a nationalistic approach takes away, the ethnics ethnic divisions in a global sort of identity take that away on an even higher level? Yes. And it's not a good level. It's intrinsically race is intrinsically meaningless nation is not meaningless nation is a language a culture a way of living a way of identifying specifically you might as well say let me ask you in deal world. Would we have family bonds? Yes, I see where you're going with that. So this is this is an extended family, but there's no such thing as okay, go on. You're a man of the bible. Don't don't you agree that there was a point. At least, according whether you agree that tweet take little or not at the bible does speak about a time before the tower babble where we were at one people and that was a fan. I thought it was a bad idea. That's the whole point. That is the story. They spoke one language, and then they built the tower of Babel and a city God didn't like the city and God didn't like the tower. They would just ego driven and decided to create a lot of languages that. Was that was that? It's ironic you should mention that. Because my Genesis commentaries coming out in a few months. Exodus is already out the rational bible, it's called. And yes, that's a perfect example of it. When God blesses Abraham cited the bible says through all the nations of the earth will be blessed. Is a good thing. Enriches life. I'm enriched having an American identity when I visited all Bainian I and I went to a home and it had the Albany and flag in it. I was I was delighted I didn't want them to have the United Nations flag. I want it. All Baynes to have the obey million flag. Cadeau key. This is really really important obviously, Ian in van Nuys, California. And thank you, John and queens high. Hi Denison, told me last time. I call to remind you that time. Giving me some pretty high compliment. In the past, especially you said if I was going to call on a controversial topic and. I have two big things number one a distinction between patriotism and nationalism. I know that you said that they're very similar, and I I agree. They're pretty close to each other. But I do think that there is a semantic difference. The other one what is the semantic forgetting some what is the meaning difference? How can you be a patriot? Okay. So there isn't any okay next. Go ahead. Okay. I was that Americanism is actually more important thing than even patriotism slash nationalism. I think that you know, there's a reason that we. See God, then country, you know. And I think Americanism using idea the love of the ideas of the founding documents, you know, for instance, I can get the chills. Liberty and Justice. And does are actually as important as patriotism is. It's actually more important thing to have Americanism because you know, I agree. A love of America without love of Americanism is meaningless his point is well taken. Americanism. I explain in my book, still the best hope. Very very.
