Leave policies have not caught up for women in office
"Are serving as state lawmakers across the country. But in most capitals, family leave policies have not changed. That leaves new moms with few options when having Children. Abigail, since he has more from member station W. K a. R in Lansing. Mallory McMorrow was part of 2018 so called year of the woman. When a record number of women were elected to office, she flipped a Michigan State Senate district in the suburbs of Detroit. Your first interview you're very hungry. Seven weeks ago, she gave birth to her first daughter. No. Uh uh. She's like the size of the microphone. You know, Like many parents, McMorrow is taking time off to be with her newborn. But while state employees get 12 weeks of paid time off, there's no parental leave policy for lawmakers. The answer to their constituents and their pay is written in the state constitution so they can technically take off as much time as they want The catch being they miss votes. I can't vote remotely. I can't proxy vote. I have to physically go toe Lansing. And I have a newborn who naps for 20 minutes and then is up again and ready to eat and be changed. Michigan is one of a handful of legislatures where lawmakers worked full time. Senator Vic Morrow said she spoke up because she could already envision attack outs criticizing her for not being in the capital to vote vote She missed so she could spend time with her baby. Are we comfortable with the idea? That we don't want working moms in the Legislature because that's the message unless we change the system, she says. This is a conversation she's had with many women that women can have it all. Just not all at once on that feels true for her in the Legislature. The

Racism is Rife in the Royal Family
"Deputy editor at OK magazine, Jacqueline Raw to recap Oprah's interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and interview that got a lot of attention last night and has been a big top of conversation all throughout the day today, Jacqueline, Thanks so much for taking a few minutes. To talk to us about this so much to unpack from that interview, But let's start with what you think was the biggest headline. Oh, my God so much, But I think the big headline is that racism is a really big issue within the royal family. I think people don't understand that. You know, the rules only has been around for so long, and they've never had American, let alone You know, a half black American come into this family, and I think that really just turned everything around, and it just makes you feel so many things for me again. You know all this stuff behind the scenes that no one knows anything about and you know she's being treated this way. So crazy that this is happening and no one knew about it. What can you tell us about Meghan Markle before she got involved with Prince Harry and eventually married him when she was just an actress on suits? Was there anything that you heard in Hollywood about her? No. I feel like she was so off the radar like she was such a. You know, She's a big character in this, so but not many people really knew who she was until she started dating Harry. I feel like I remember the date came out and they said Meghan is now dating Harry and I remember everyone saying, Oh, this is the girl on suits, you know? It's crazy, and so on. But he does have a lot of these high profile friends. You know, obviously, yes. Serena Williams now and, um, have Abigail she was on. They were on so together something and they have Gayle King and Oprah like He's obviously been around for a long time. But I just don't think that she was very prevalent. Obviously, if he is now, which is really crazy, and the reason I ask that is because you've got a lot of people wondering First of all, who is this woman? And then is she some Hollywood actress who's prone to a lot of drama? Or is what she's saying? What happened that this is on the royal family? And the palace. I mean to the point where she revealed last night that she was thinking about killing herself. It got so bad that Prince Harry felt he had no choice but to get them out of there. Yeah, I mean, I feel like he I feel like everything that if he was in Hollywood before, but I feel like you know, it wasn't to this certain extent like no eyes were on her as they are now. Our words you know, when she first came into the family, she obviously was living a very much like lower key life. He was like the California girls. She had her own blood called the Pig. She was very, You know, kind of, you know, the boho California vibe like that's what He kind of made herself as and then no one really knew her like I feel like if you walked suits and you, obviously, you know, knew the character, but for the most part, he kind of stayed under the radar, So I feel like it's just Now all eyes are on her. People are just, you know, fasting, her left and right, especially when he came into the family. She's American. You know, Black sees all this stuff like I think he just he couldn't win. No matter how hard he Tried or tried Tol, you know, make nice and say, you know, I am a good person, or I do that all this charity work. I love this stuff. You know, It's just I think it's just became a huge breaking point. At some point. That's why I see You know, wanted to maybe kill herself. I mean, I can't even imagine what it's like waking up and having 100 headlines about you, and they're not good, and you just kind of have to sit back and say, OK, I guess I got to just take it and live my life kind of, but even living it. He said he was in the palace. He couldn't see that he didn't leave for months at a time because They just told her not to, which is so not a way to live and like, they said, with the pandemic now, I think everyone kind of can relate to being trust. At some point. I'm
After Record Turnout, Republicans Are Trying to Make It Harder to Vote
"Louise Kelly, a record 158 million Americans voted last November. Many cast their ballots early and by mail well now, in the aftermath of President Biden's victory, some Republican state lawmakers are proposing bills that would effectively make it harder to vote. Here to talk us through what is happening with voting laws in three states where the 2020 election was really close our Stephen Fowler of Georgia Public Broadcasting, Abigail, since key of WK are in Lansing, Michigan. And been Giles of Cage's in Phoenix. Arizona. Welcome all three of you. Thanks. Thank you. Thank you for having us, Steven. I've got to start with you. Not only because George is my home state, but because there has, of course been so much focus on Georgia and on Trump's efforts to throw out Biden's victory there. What are GOP lawmakers they're discussing. Well this week, Many Republican lawmakers who pushed false claims of election fraud have signed on to a number of bills in the Senate aimed at making it harder to vote. And that's after Democrats flipped both U. S Senate seats and help defeat President Trump. They would do things like Ban absentee ballot. Dropbox is severely restrict who could request a mail in absentee ballot and would undo the so called motor voter law that automatically updates your voter registration. Whenever you go to the D. M V. Now there are a few proposals that seem most likely to be enacted. One would add some sort of security requirement when you request an absentee by male vote in the future, such as writing your driver's license I d number or sending in a photocopy of your I D when you request a ballot, All right, let's head west over to Arizona Been a zoo, you know Well, Biden's victory was razor thin there as it was in Georgia. What is the debate unfolding where you are? Well, we're seeing voting laws that would impact every step of the voting process. Starting with getting registered. One measure would make it more difficult for county officials to go out into the community and hold voter registration drives. There was even a bill to abolish the incredibly popular vote by mail system in Arizona. The sponsor backtracked off that idea within hours of introducing the bill. What other ideas include requiring people to get early ballot envelopes notarized that's been described by some as a poll tax, and another proposal says You could get an early ballot mailed to you, but you couldn't tell it back. They want you to hand deliver it to a polling place, and perhaps the most controversial ideas would directly impact the presidential election results. One plan would divvy up electoral college votes by congressional district like Maine and Nebraska. Another would actually let the Legislature straight up, revoke the certification of results and let lawmakers pick who gets the electoral college votes. Wow. Um, Abigail. How about Michigan Democrats control the executive branch, but Republicans control the Legislature. How does that dynamic play out in terms of what's happening with voting laws on the discussion over what to do with him in Michigan? Well, it's been a real split screen. We have Democrats and clerks who are pointing to this election as the safest and most secure of their careers. Bar. Bayram is one of the clerks from the larger counties and Michigan, and she called on Republicans this week to say what's been clear throat. All of these hearings that this election was fair and free of fraud. At the end of the day. If people do not want to believe this backed, they're not gonna believe it. Regardless of how many audits are performed. Reports are issue or how transparent the processes and in Michigan are. Democratic Secretary of State is saying she wants to do things like male absentee ballot applications to registered voters and federal elections. Republicans are countering with things like putting cameras on unstaffed ballot. Dropbox is neither of those are likely to get very far. But there is middle ground on issues like making sure there's common training for pole challengers on Stephen and been a quick quick reaction from each of you on that. How much of this in your state? It is. Real policy proposal. How much is for show? Well, Mary Louise after the last couple months of hand wringing over votes we've seen top Republican lawmakers in Georgia say that they're not going to do some of the more extreme proposals. They're not for cutting, no excuse absentee voting, and many of these bills are likely just to appease their constituents who say that more needs to be done. Why do Republicans in your states say changes like this are necessary, Given that there were no major issues with absentee voting in the 2020 election, Given that federal officials have confirmed it was the most secure election in American History. Stephen Bendy one. Do you want to take that one? Justification in Arizona is Pretty simply put as distrust, citing the misinformation that's out there and citing the fact that there are a lot of these Republicans constituents who say they have doubts whether or not those doubts are based on any valid information. Republicans have kind of push past that and just said the fact that there are doubt justifies continued discussions about the election. And changes to the law that they say might inspire some more confidence

With Expensive U.S. COVID-19 Vaccines, Many Countries Look Elsewhere
"Virus. Pandemic vaccines will have to be distributed around the world. For most countries. The vaccines available in the U. S right now are simply too expensive and too difficult to transport as NPR's Joe Parker reports that is making vaccines made in Russia and China look attractive. There's a good reason China could play a key role in ending the global Corona virus pandemic. China has an enormous vaccine production capacity. Deborah Seligson is a China watcher at Villanova University. That enormous capacity is at least in part because China is an enormous country. And since public health measures have largely kept the virus in check in China, that means some of that capacity can be used to send vaccines around the world. There are going to be huge advantages to these Chinese vaccines once they're, you know, fully tested, and if they turn out to be a fact, if for one thing they don't require special refrigeration, and for another, they'll be cheap. But there's still that question of if they turn out to be effective. We just haven't seen the full trial results published yet. Abigail Copeland is on the faculty of Vassar College. She keeps her eye on Chinese biotech companies. The technology behind the two leading Chinese vaccines is decades old. It's an approach that was used successfully in the 19 fifties to make a polio vaccine. It involves growing the virus in a lab than in activating it with a chemical like formaldehyde and using that in a vaccine there, inactivated viral vaccine is based on research that they had conducted to develop a vaccine for stars and so that actually gave them a head start. SARS was a deadly outbreak in the early two thousands in China. Caused by a close relative of the covert 19 corona virus, But the virus causing stars disappeared so that vaccine got shelved. Hopeless. He's nothing nefarious about the delays and learning the results of trials of the Chinese vaccines. Since there's very little virus circulating in China to test their vaccine, the Chinese have had to turn to countries like Brazil, Indonesia and Turkey. And so when you're running that many trials internationally, it does take a lot of time to actually analyze that trial data. What's more, the results that have come out on how well the vaccine works have varied widely from 52 close to 90%. Without definitive results showing a vaccine works. Why have apparently more than a dozen countries around the world signed deals to get one of these vaccines? It's a measure of how desperate countries feel and how much uncertainty they face. J. Stephen Morrison is director of the Global Health Policy Center at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Most countries they're not throwing themselves hook line and sinker into partnerships with the with the Chinese. That's because there are other low cost alternatives. A vaccine. Made by Oxford University and AstraZeneca's also racking up lots of international customers, and it has been given some form of regulatory go ahead in several countries, including India. That country is also likely to have a vaccine candidate that will be inexpensive and widely available. But Judith Twigg says there's already another major entrant into the international vaccine arena. Back on August 11th the Russian government with great stand, Fehr announced the first in the world registration of a vaccine against Cove It twig is at Virginia Commonwealth University, and she follows Russian health policy closely. The Russian vaccine is what's known as a viral vector vaccine somewhat newer technology than the two leading Chinese vaccines. The Russians chose Sputnik V is the name for their vaccine. Tweak says They did that for a reason. They're very deliberately invoking imagery of Russia re emerging is great power status. We're back. We're at the scientific and technological top of the world, and we're ready to start sharing our technology with everyone. The problem there is that they had not only barely Started phase three clinical trials, They had barely started ramping up productions that was back in August. Twigg says production has ramped up and Russia now claims its vaccine is more than 90% effective, although data for that claim haven't been published yet for other scientists to scrutinize Several countries are ready to try the vaccine, including Argentina, Mexico and India. One thing is clear the world is going to need a number of vaccines to work if the global pandemic is really going to be brought under control. Joe

The Big Red Button
"I'm gabrielle. Sierra and this is why it matters today a look inside the rules for nuclear launch in the united states and the risks of giving one person so much power. Hey i'm alex bill and i name is abigail sto thurston. Bell and stow. Thurston are both experts at the center for arms control and non-proliferation an ngo that focuses on nuclear security. This means they spent every day thinking about how to prevent nuclear war. Okay so the only person that is in charge of launching a nuclear attack is the president. There's no stopgap. There's no other people he asked to consult. There's nothing else just his decision. Yes so there's no requirement that the president consult with anyone they can and our command and control system is designed so that he can get in contact with advisers that he wants to speak to but no requirement that he consult with anyone before we go any further. Let's get our terms straight. There are two kinds of nuclear strikes retaliation. And i use. The details are complex but both are essentially what they sound like. Retaliation involves responding to a nuclear attack with a nuclear attack. I use means being the first to use nuclear weapons in conflict. Neither of these scenarios requires the president to consult with experts. So if the scene with the big board and the president talking to all of his advisors doesn't need to happen. What actually does need to happen. The protocol for launching nuclear weapon is highly secretive but the main components are known. Could you walk me through. How a i use nuclear strike would go down. It basically starts with the president deciding that he wants to use a nuclear weapon. He can decide this because he feels like an attack is imminent on the united states. He can decide it because we're in a conflict and he wants to use a nuclear weapon to end the conflict you know basically escalate so far that the other side will back down or it could just decide. He wants to use a nuclear weapon their issues surrounding whether or not it would be a legal order. But i think in the heat of the moment you're not gonna have a bunch of lawyers running into the room saying i don't think this is legal. He actually has a direct line to the national military command center. This facility run by the pentagon is ready at any minute of the day to receive a launch order remember. The president is the commander in chief of the military. All he has to do is pick up the phone. Indicate the target and the number of weapons he would like to launch. He has something called biscuit which is a little card that has launch codes on them. Someone verifies that is in fact the president giving this order. The order goes out and within five minutes from the president deciding. I want to launch a nuke to nuke in the air. That's how easy it is terrifying short amount of time and terrifyingly easy today and you're relying on the person who has the authority to know and have thought through all of those consequences. We take it for granted that that person will have thought about that before they do it. There's no checker balance to make sure that that presidents in the right head space has thought through everything has talked with our allies. None of that's there and has it always been this way. So historically commanders did have the ability in the eisenhower administration at the beginning of the nuclear age to use nuclear weapons on their own authorities. Should they not be able to get into contact with the president and then it was in the kennedy administration that we really solidify the idea that it should be the president and the president alone that the consequences of nuclear use is so massive that it really should be a decision at the top level. The idea being that. The american public would always electa relational and straight thinking president and And so that's why. This sort of very undemocratic process develops was a bit of a nuclear monarchy. So the idea was that this one person who was elected by all these people would have the wherewithal to make the right decision in this situation. Yeah it was theorized that way but not everybody always agreed with it. In fact during the height of the cold war there was a lot of debate about whether or not this was a good structure and it kind of went to macab places at times where somebody was positing that. Actually you should have the launch codes in a pill inserted inside of the heart of military attache and the president would actually have to kill that military attache to get the codes and be able to kill hundreds of thousands of people. Obviously that was not an actionable plan by theorists at the time is sort of making the case about how much you're putting on the shoulders of one person and whether or not that's a good idea when it comes to a weapon that's capable of flattening cities and and beyond the stakes surrounding the decision to launch a nuclear first strike are as high as they get and since the attacks on hiroshima and nagasaki. No president has done so in an ideal world the president would think and hard and hear a wide range of opinions before undertaking a first strike but when it comes to the other nuclear scenario retaliation the president would not usually have the luxury of time for retaliation you have to be able to decide and execute the retaliation and a very short time. Lsu you risk being wiped out neutralize before you can do. so this is richard vets. He's the director of the saltzman institute of war and peace studies at columbia university. An adjunct senior fellow here at the council he's served on the senate select committee on intelligence the national security council and advised three cia director's. How short is that time. Well that depends on where you are between india and pakistan which right next to each other could be almost instantaneous. for the united states and russia the Time was generally thought to be once. The missile age began about twenty to twenty five minutes list for the united states depending on various technical details.

We Gather Together - Creating an American Thanksgiving with Denise Kiernan
"So denise. I want to start by asking you to cover the early history of thanksgiving were all taught. From a very early age that the pilgrims landed in plymouth and shared a feast with the native americans living in the area. How close is that accurate. What's so interesting about thanksgiving as we celebrated versus thanksgiving as it has been on this planet for much longer. I'm always fascinated about how traditions and practices evolved the concept of gratitude and giving thanks has been around basically as long as humans have walked the earth. The word thanksgiving and even the practice of thanksgiving has been around for centuries before even conception of the united states of america. Yes the pilgrim's did land at plymouth. Yes the pilgrim's did have a meal with the woman. Og indians was. That proclaimed a thanksgiving now. When thanksgiving became a federal holiday in the united states of america was that event singled out as the reason for establishing that holiday. Now i want to be clear. I am not putting anything out there. That other people haven't said for a while and what's really interesting. I think is that every year. You'll see these. Hey here's the real. This part of thanksgiving and i think part of the reason. Is we tell these stories. We tell this. Essentially two kids in school and then later on when they get into high school or college or whatever we don't necessarily re contextualised and give them the full story so every year it's almost necessary that we keep trotting these things out and contextualisation of history is so important to really kind of look at everything that went into a particular event and thanksgiving again. Like i said you know. I am not the first person to come out. And say yeah. That's not exactly how it happened. But what i'm interested in. And what was one of the linchpins at making me want to do. The book we gather together was the ageless. Timeless concept gratitude view stevens. I'm and author here in madison wisconsin. And i'm thankful for men. Women working press in use of the people. The you don't have a great thanksgiving. There is an alternate true factual story about thanksgiving and gratitude and harvest festivals. And all of those things. And how. The actual holiday came to be in america and evolve and erica so i thought was an alternate entry and wouldn't that be fun and i'm interested. How thanksgiving celebrations changed in the seventeenth and eighteenth century. So a lot of what thanksgiving is rule out of things like harvest festivals. Which again go way. Way back thanksgiving's were often religious practices in various parts of the world. You would set aside a day sometimes for fasting and humiliation as they would say to give thanks for could be particular event. When i was working on we gather together. I came across some really interesting articles including some archives from the atoms stanley. john adams. John quincy adams. Abigail adams and john adams writes in his diary thanksgiving for the repeal of the stamp act. So like that was something. You would have a thanksgiving for declare thanksgiving for thanksgiving's for various wins in battle or days of general thanksgiving or like. I said fasting and humiliation so those sorts of advance existed outside of north america. What we now consider the continental united states they existing europe and those traditions were obviously brought over when people came over but the concept of having days set aside for saying thank. You is something that goes back a very very long time. Tell us about. Sarah josefa so sarah of a hail was so compelling to me because she was a young woman born in the early nineteenth century actually of the eighteenth century. She had no formal schooling but her parents instilled in her a deep deep love of reading and learning and she was obsessed with the written word. She married a man who shared her love of all these things. They used to have study hour together in the evenings. She lost him fairly early on in their marriage and so she was a widowed mother of five children and because of her desire to write ended up becoming one of the most influential editors in the nineteenth century. She edited to popular women's magazines. The american ladies magazine and then go. Jeez ladies magazine which was one of the most popular magazines in the nineteenth century. And just to be able to do that to me whether thing but what really moved me about her was that she had all of these things that she needed not wanted but like needed to do for herself and her children but she still found time to raise money for people who have less than she did and to bring people's attention to causes she thought worthy and her ten city was just. I mean seriously. I was interviewing her thinking good. What have i been doing with my time. You know how i feel like. I'm talking to her. You know when. I am interviewing her. I'm looking at what she wrote. I'm looking at what she was quoted as saying. I'm looking at the book she put out. I'm looking at the end. Policies that she curated

It was everywhere. Alexa bliss announces that she's engaged A lot of alexa bliss fans are so happy for her lot of alexa. Bliss fans are very sad. Because i guess they thought that alexa bliss was going to marry them until she got engaged. It was so you're saying there's a chance. I saw on the not sam wrestling discord room. Where all are not. Sam shells that are signed up to patriot. Dot com slash. Sam wrestling. That we all get to chat There were a couple of them. That were upset. That alexa was engaged because they thought that that was going to be them. Unfortunately it's not but don't worry you still got the patriot community. You still got us. Not sam shells that are there for you. it's not. it's not all bad news but it was everywhere. She posted this video of of ryan. Cabrera popstar cabrera who she's been very publicly dating Proposing tour beautiful thing. You love is a wonderful thing and seeing join in holy matrimony and become even happier is wonderful. It's one of the happiest things if you are with the right person. The day the night the evening the afternoon that you get engaged one of the happiest times ever just such an expression of joy. It's beautiful. I love it but everybody's talking about it. I mean alexa. Bliss is a huge star. You know you've got. Wwe tweeting about it. And i probably should be. It's it's a little bit absurd to ignore it. You know not only is one of the biggest stars really realistically alexa. Bliss is one of the biggest stars in. wwe male or female. She's one of the most famous people in. Wwe so you know. And this is big. Wwe is big time. Now you got sasha banks over here on the mandalorian which you see. Sasha banks one of the big another one of the biggest stars in wwe and probably the biggest tv show. that's on the air right now. You see that happening which weird. The wwe isn't making a bigger deal out of that. Like if i were. Www shouting it from the rooftops. But you've got that going on at the same time you got to cherry public engagement. You know i mean. I feel like we should let's angle for a reality show. Let's get on the phone. I was watching total balas over the weekend. And i was like you know what i miss. When they would go to wrestlemainia. I was just sitting there waiting for them to go to wrestling. Like oh wait. There is no more wrestling. And that's when. I realized that i was watching total bells for the wrestling parts. They still got daniel bryan on the show. Obviously no more john cena. They're not going to wrestling shows anymore. So it's like oh. I like the balanced. But i'm still you know living in brima to seven but they're not gonna wrestling shows anymore so yes so let's get alexa. Bliss rang cabrera. Let's get blissfully something or other. You know you got bliss already in there you you got it. But here's what. I think needs to happen now that we've acknowledged. Wwe is acknowledged it's all over wwe social media platforms. I think that you gotta lean into it. And i think that you should use it. I think that this can be a lot of fun. Especially because ryan cabrera is also a public person. Here's the way. I think this needs to go. You had this segment on raw last week. Where nikki cross is talking to alexa. And there's this acknowledgement that they used to be friends. Which i think is great. We're not pretending that the election nikki partnership never happened is a big part of. Wwe at the time you know. We're still acknowledging it and alexis doing that. Weird phony friendly like almost like i'm in a trance. Peewee herman thing and nikki cross tells her alexa you gotta pick mere the fiend and alexa. As if it doesn't bother it all goes. Oh okay. I pick him. And walks away and nikki crosses befuddled by the whole thing befuddled. I love this. I think we need to keep this going. You know i look. This is the type of stuff. I want for alexa bliss and the this is why i say. Keep the fiend away from the universal championship. Keep the fiend away from the wwe championship because these are the types of stories. You can tell you know. I think that we should go back and look at who are friends. Were in annex t the start telling those stories and have somebody come out. Go like lexi. What are you doing things. You're you're not the same person what what's happening. I pick him and you know over. The course of a couple of weeks have her abandoning oliver. All friends and then finally ryan cabrera comes out on raw and it's like real life now it's like is this alexa. Bliss is this. What's her name lexi kaufman in real life. I don't know. I only know people by their wrestling names. But is this the real alexa. Bliss from real life. is the character alexa bliss now. We're mixing everything up. Which is what we should all be doing. That's the way wrestling is at. Its best mix everything up. And you've ryan cabrera out on raw and he's like alexa. I love you and she's like i love you. Do you know like yeah. Of course it you love me. I love you. We're we're doing great and he's like well. You're not the same person i thought. When we got engaged it would shake you out of this transfer inches. I'm not in a trance. I'm just seeing things for what they are for. The first time ryan cabrera goes lexi. I need you need you to pick you. Pick me or the fiend. She's kind of taken aback. She's like i didn't realize he felt that way. Ryan that's how i feel and she's like well net case i pick him. He's like what and then you hear bumble bumble bumble and the lights go out. Eat whatever those sounds are and tom phillips going. Oh no not here that's alexa. Bliss fiance pop sensation ryan cabrera and the red lights come on and the fiend is behind ryan cabrera and ryan cabrera's looking around and he's looking at alexa bliss. I what are you doing here. Like this is our real life and then he realized he gets his goosebumps. You realize the fiend is right behind him so he turns around and the phoenix cox's head and sticks his tongue out of his mask grabs ryan cabrera vice skull dips him over gives him a kiss on the forehead and he sister abigail ryan cabrera. Alexa bliss is real life. Fiance get sister abigail an alexa bliss just standing over him smiling. I love it man. I mean i i think that why not why not. I feel like it would be good for everybody involved. Like let's let's blur the lines here guys. Let's not pretend there's two separate entities as it's happening eventually we can tell the story of how like. Oh this is so wild in my personal and blah blah blah but while it's happening muster blending these lines with blurred altogether be like. That's a real fiancee right. Yup like the best is when you're trying to explain to a non wrestling fan. What storyline and what's not storyline. And they get confused because you're a little bit confused because you're not one hundred percent sure where the lines are and who's getting worked by what maybe. wwe tweeting about this was part of the storyline. All along are they even really engaged. I don't even know anymore. I don't know anything anymore. I guess i'm just going to sit here and watch monday night. Ron finds out. Find out what happens next. Because that's the way we should be watching anyway. Just let it play out and see what happens. I would love that if that happened. I would love it if that happened. Socket in our discord room. Says i love that. Sam has cabrera taking bumps like the fiend doesn't use the middle claw. He hit the mandible claw. After maybe alexa bliss puts the mandible claw him or something like that but is taking sister abigail. I mean we are laying out ryan cabrera. 'cause i want e. news. I want entertainment tonight. I want whatever extra whatever. Entertainment shows are left on television. I want people magazine. People dot com. I want everybody posting videos of being like popstar ryan cabrera. Remember him. Well i remember. I remember will now. He's getting laid out by the fiend on monday night raw. Because here's what happens. If you have a pop star that you grew up idolizing and he's getting laid out. Here's the way that works. You get the people who don't watch wrestling to not only get a glimpse of monday night raw but they get a glimpse of the theme. The is one the most unique properties the wwe has. The fiend is the type of visual. That went a non wrestling fan watches. They go what the hell is that. I'm going to have to tune in and see what that's all about. That's one of the strengths of the fiend. And if you got footage of ryan cabrera eating a sister. Abigail and his real life fiance alexa. Bliss is looking on happily in that weird fien state. You got money bro. you got money. I hope they're already thinking in that direction. If not. i'm in text. Bruce richard because somebody has to tell them get ryan cabrera on that show and lay that out. I think it'd be great. I think it'd be great. Congratulations to the two of them. But i have to believe that ryan cabrera. Whatever time of his life. I know i would if my fiance was a wrestler and she was like hey would you mind coming to raw and having the fiend. Give you sister abigail. I'd be like number one. That's awesome number two. After the show me. I get a picture of him in full gimmick. I really wish i could do that. I really wish i mean. I wish. I wish that. I could have one of the shows that i was at the fiend was at too. I wish i could just go like hey bro. Can we take a picture with you. Still in your gimmick and not. Be a weirdo. That doesn't deserve to be backstage. Because man do. I want that picture a really really. Do

"Now it's going to check on the markets. Joining us now is Abigail Doolittle. So when I looked at literally looked like people Buying from which everything have ago. Yeah, real risk on day here at least relative to stocks. Commodities a little bit less so, but we have big gains for both the Dow and the S and P 500 NASDAQ less so I'm not sure that has so much to do with the election last Friday, there were some saying that perhaps last Friday could turn out to be the pre election lo similar to 2016 when you're the two weeks into the election. Down weeks, and then you had a big rally in the election weekend out of the election. What's very clear, though, is we have lots of selling in the tech space that probably has to do with JPMorgan, saying that they're lightening up on their overweighting positioning to a neutral. They expect some of the more cyclical sectors to take hold, and that has nothing to do with the election. They think that will happen. No matter who wins the presidency. What they do say, though, is and this is not surprising that what investors really want relative to the election is certainty that they want to know who is going to win this election and that once that's in place that's going to be a real positive for the markets and one sign of that uncertainty. That you and Jeanie and Kevin were just talking about bonds. We actually have bonds rallying in a big way on the day after selling off last week. Never dull moment, David. Yeah, because it isn't But one thing you follow, I know is positioning. Is that telling us anything are people hedging? What's going with the vics? The vics is actually damn just slightly today, but the vics continues to suggest that yes, investors are heading into the election. The vics has been outpacing the VX N or the tech index, Vicks. Which is pretty interesting visit again suggest that relative to regular volatility as opposed to that mega cat volatility. Investors are starting to bring up the hedge in terms of anything can happen and something else that I've been watching for the last few months, the S and P 500 stuck in this huge range of congestion on there's one line of thinking that says That is in the three months ahead of the election.

I remember when I was trained to pick the name for this podcast, because believe it or not I didn't know I knew for about six months that I wanted to do a podcast and I. I was like what can carry the weight of hundreds of episodes and I. for six months. I considered different topics. I considered doing live coaching and I was like how who was GonNa Agree to that you know I had a lot of different conceptual thoughts, and then I was driving one day, and it landed on me like a sack of bricks is like Abigail hearts unleashed. You could unleash your heart, and then interview hearts that are unleashed, and I was like. Oh, there's literally millions of unleashed hearts can do thousands of episodes, and so I've been so so grateful for my own topic, and and the direction that I've taken it and and followed. But so you really do want to wonder what topic can carry the weight of hundreds of episodes. Because you know a podcast, its intention is to reach an audience. It's you could do it for self expression, but there's also a lot of other things you can do for self expression that don't require as much efforting. So I'M GONNA. Switch my answer over into the logistical side. which is you need a hosting site I use blueberry I'm going to talk about the stuff that I used because I really love it, but logistically you need a hosting site I pay chance Hayden our editor and he'd has all the editing, and so this podcast has cost me more money than it has made me so well. At, this point, that's probably not true, but certainly getting into it right getting started I had to put money in and money in the I'd cast. The blueberry is forty dollars a month. What else do to pay for? zoom is fifteen dollars a month because I have the subscription one where you can have you know endless conversations you know, and then I have mail chimp, which also is the emailing service that I use which is how I notify people about episodes and things of that nature or market. Market each week and so there's like these factors that come into play of you know you're not just sitting down recording a jam session, and then it goes on to itunes or wherever you listen from. There's a lot of logistical factors that go into it, so you WanNa have eve and here's the thing I knew right away. I am not going to be the one to edit this material. I tried to edit a photo once in Photoshop, and that was where I learned like I. Am No, no editor. So I have a chance to do that and I am so grateful. In fact, he's editing this right now, and I just WanNa. Say Chance I love you. Leave this in here for all to hear. And, if you guys haven't met or heard of chance, he'll be on an episode one day..

"Time and place. He saying that he is going to be her protector. He's going to provide for her. He will keep her because at that time in the world, a woman on her own was left in a very vulnerable position, so not only is it a kind of a beautiful romantic ending to the story that this wild warrior? It's like it's like some of those books that you go into reading. My Dad used to always say. Women like these books were his strong muscular arms folded her soft body. Big Hairy men with tattoos and swords and shields. My wife read through some of these recently, I laughed at her, but it's the kind of story. This wilderness Brigham David. Who aren't there with his men falls in love with the beautiful wealthy woman and God makes it so the she is part of this, and brings this blessing to him, and his men, and he saved every innocent life in avows household, because every man was going to get it can by the way. Isn't that a bit sexist? How come every man was going to get it? Why not everybody else not Nevada was the only. Only donkey! That was rude. We're all GONNA kill you. Just you don't notice these things you pay attention every man. Some of the guys were in the field nothing to do with the discussion, but she saves everybody in one fool Nobel. She was an incredible woman, and she did something that was incredible. Abigail was described as a beautiful intelligent woman at the beginning of her story, but as the story progressed, she proved showed so much more fishy was she showed her intelligence? She showed her healthy guide. The kept check on the observer of her emotions. She showed her understanding and the unfolding situation. Situation, but she showed her wisdom in how she responded to show boldness and confidence in gathering the Food for David's men, regardless of what her foolish husband had said, when she finally met with David, and his men, who were loaded for bear and ready for war she showed.

"Man turned around and went back when they arrived, they reported every word David said to his men each strap on your sword, so they did and David strapped on his as well about four hundred men went up with David while two hundred stayed with supplies, so you can imagine the man on the way back like. Do you want to tell them I? Don't WanNA. Tell them he likes you better than me. You should tell them you know so. You can see this discussion between guys. There's ten of them raw going to draw straws and who's GonNa, tell him. Because David is going to be really angry and David's a real man like David is a man's man. He's the Kenneth Solid leader guy, and so they give him this news, and David like the man respect, the is like the man of authority immediately response to that David was not a man. You disrespect. David was not a man. You disrespect if you're a member from your old testaments, classes and studies, why was it? The David wasn't allowed to build the temple remember. Remember blood on his hands right David wasn't allowed to bid to build a temple because he was a warrior, he'd seen too much blood not to say that there's necessarily necessarily of do Raviv, but it's not what God wants it's it's an ugly thing. Even death in terms of war, so Dave is not the guy that you disrespect. And he immediately responded because he's a solid and decisive guy, and so four hundred well armed men strap on their swords, and they're moving. Have you ever seen a couple of hundred angry people walking together like meaning business with a look in their eye? That made you think I should stand out of the way. Even five guys who are furiously angry moving in that direction makes you wanna move in this direction because that's not my problem. I'm getting out the way well. Here's David coming down the mountain. Pass with four hundred guys ready for. For battle aimed on badness for Nepal and seeing four, we see Abigail finally. Become involved I.

"It's actually not true to say that women are more emotional. It's true to say that they can access them better. What we see in upbringing then is important, because if a, if a manner woman, if a boy or girl is raised by a healthy mother and a healthy father, they have a healthy connection to their emotional side, and they have a healthy connection. Connection to the rational side now to make this bit more fun for you think of the rational side as the guide. He's the one that gives you. Directions think of the emotional side as the Observer. That's on the back of the guy going. This is fun. Look at that. It's bright. Let's go down that road. It's interesting and the guy is trying to keep things in the right. Order your reasons. I'd emotions aside just like this exciting. Home, and so emotions are super super strong, but they're not the best guide. Have you noticed it's a thing they can be informative, but you want to build up your guides. What we see in our culture for all of us is that if you're brought up with a good solid moment, a good solid dad, you have healthy reasoning base, and you have healthy emotions. If you're brought up with just a good mom, it's a bit less, but if you're brought up by an unhealthy parent and no other what happens is particularly for girls because you've got more access to the emotional. Emotional side is the thinking can drift more towards emotional thinking. Here's a hint for you. Emotional thinking isn't thinking. It's feeling it's the guy on the block directions the guy on the front who should be given directions and he's like I. Don't know I guess we'll go this way. You ever find yourself into. Have strange place because you thought this would be a great idea emotionally, but then when you think about it, you're like maybe shouldn't on this. Maybe maybe it's a person you've dated. He's going to be so great tattoos in prison sentences and drug habits. He's going to be. Right emotions will get us in trouble when the guy does not doing his job properly so all at jump into this story of Abigail, we're going to be in I Samuel Twenty five and the first scene of this movie I see it as a narrative movie is the beauty and the beast, and from verse to going forward and says this. A certain man in mourn your property at the Carpool was wealthy. Thousand goats and three thousand sheep, which he was cheering and Carmel his home, His name was not noval, and his wife's name was Abigail. She was intelligent and beautiful woman, but her husband was surly, and mean in his dealings and he was Kayla. Bite so seen one describes what we're looking at when we look at this story, the first thing we see. See is that this man whose name turns out to be Nobel is a wealthy property owner with animals, so he's a wealthy farmer, which was the business of the day, and he is a big spread to the point where he has herders, and he has servants. There's all kinds of people that are serving him and working for him so again he's got. Got Lots of money. He's got lots of these lots going on and again we know this because later on in the story, she does something. She gathers a whole bunch of stuff out of the kitchen and goes and takes a trip and he doesn't even know what's going on. And that's how big the places. There's a lot going on in the house. House now Abigail was his intelligent and beautiful wife, and it was a Max that was made on practical terms..
