Dr. Andrew Weil - Spontaneous Happiness
"Doctor Wyle. Welcome back to the show. Thanks good to be here again while we got a lot to get into really enjoyed our first conversation and we got into a lot of different stuff and I wanNA take time and get into some new subjects get a bit deeper into some of the stuff we covered last time but you're such a wealth of knowledge and have so many different areas of expertise would I decided to do was pick one of your many books which I pick spontaneous happiness and Kinda use that as an underlying. Theme for our chat today. Okay. So a lot we can get into within that. But first of all, let's talk about your post you put up on instagram yesterday you you shared a short video of yourself eating the prince, which is a mushroom I hadn't heard of this one before. So tell me about in how long have you been consuming it well, it's one of my favorite mushrooms. It's not a common one I found that various parts of the country the property where I live at the moment in British Columbia they come up. At this time of year and sometimes in the fall, it's a big. Very Meaty, beautiful mushroom us, fairly easy to identify. It's related to the button mushroom. That's in that same family. It has a very strong fragrance of almond extract that persists when you cook the mushroom. So it's just delightful and I was so happy to find these and they tend to get attacked by insect larvae very early on. So it's hard to find a specimens that are intact and the ones that I found your so far have been completely pristine. So sliced them up, sauteed them in olive oil little salt and pepper, and they're great knifes some more coming up that I'm going to. Pick today Nice. So you're foraging those rate on your property. Yeah. Yeah. Just a few steps away from my house. Very cool. Any other mushrooms or any other forging going on this time? Of Year the Mane Mushroom time here is the fall of particularly october-november. This been an unusual season here with a lot of a lot of rain cooler temperatures. So we also had Shanta rails fruiting, which normally don't do that at this time of year. So I had a meal of those as well. Nice, and with the whole pandemic going on I know normally spend the summers see where you're at now and the. Winters down in Tucson was a hard for you to get up north in get to your your summer home while fortunately I married a Canadian last year. So I was able to get in as an immediate family member. The border is still closed. Congrats I didn't know you'd gotten married congrats to that. Yes. Thanks. So what about the gardens? How're the gardens doing? They're fantastic it's unusual weather. There is a very hot early spring here, and then it's been cool and rainy but things are doing really well I've been harvesting lot of lettuce herbs potatoes tomatoes aren't right yet corn is tasked. Laying beginning years I have a lot of bees I get a great deal of my food from the garden. Let's talk about besides the food and this ties into the whole topic a happiness that we're going to really dig into talk about on a mental and spiritual level. What do you get from being in the garden while first of all to connection with nature and when I was looking into the reasons for the epidemic of depression that we have in North America, you know one of the factors in Addis disconnection from nature I mean there are many other factors, but that's certainly one of them. Even been described as nature deficit disorder I. Think any way you can connect with nature spending time outdoors. If you're stuck indoors even being around houseplants or companion animals is helpful but I, think that's something we really need for mental emotional and spiritual well-being right and talk about how you go about incorporating houseplants in tier environment in the home and specifically what that does. and My home in Tucson, my home is really filled with house plants here in BC. Since I'm not here, all year, I don't have plans inside but I have a you know an incredible landscape and forest here and and Garden Bing around plants makes me happy and I'm very tuned into their well being you know people talk about having green thumbs or Brown thumbs I think it's mostly a matter of paying attention that if you pay attention plants, let you know what they need or what they're not getting. Have you always been a green thumb or something that took you a lot of years to get to. Now it's from early childhood and something I got from my mother that she got from her mother even though I grew up in a row. House in Philadelphia had very little land around it my mother and I would garden we plant sayings and Plant Bulbs and that really awakened my interest in the plant world, and ultimately that led me to be to study botany as an undergraduate.
Fandom Esports and Esportz Network Eye Future Collaboration
"My guest today is David Veto Curve CEO and president of FANDOM. Ease Sports David. Thanks for joining the show and thanks for that help with pronunciation. No problems thank his. Bane of my life but elegant. Thank you. Phantom ease. Sports is entertainment company that aggregate curates and produces unique fan focus content. The company's primary product is the fan sports APP which focuses on monetize Phantom via the blaze blockchain this week. Fandom in East sports network side a letter of intent, and we're excited about potential collaborations in the future starting with this podcast. So. David you're the new CEO. Last year. We had Henry home. The previous CEO Phantom on the podcast. What are your goals for the organization going forward? Very simple we're looking to. Grow and engage with the sports community the partnership that you just announced with sports is really going to be one of the building blocks of that goal What we want to do is build out community where people can come follow their favorite games. Their favorite teams interact with what may be going on in those sports. Events live in real time. And engage with each other in A. Unique Way that is. User friendly and engaging, so you know there's two pillars to the platform. Both of them are built on data, so we have data coming in from in game data, win-lose draws matches certain spells happening headshots towers, going down on the other side of that we have content coming in from sports network amongst other organizations that we're working with of. For stories around the Games and behind the Games what our community managers than do as sort through that data create predictions that people can. Predict and engage in real time so as you're watching in event on. Your favorite platform, you know as long as we have data to it. You can play along with that and interact with that game as on, so everyone's used to. have two screens home, always watching TV and I seem to be scrolling through something on my phone. So this is a way to really close that loop and increase engagement have. Absolutely we're definitely in the age of two screen viewing twitch capitalized on that very early on with the twitch chat and realize the people wanting to talk about what they're watching while they play it now. We're actually at the age of probably three screen view I know there's plenty of times when I'm playing her stone. My laptop browsing twitter while watch TV show, which is probably not good for my long term, health but I do anyway. You know. I have a little bit of mild. Add myself fourteen tabs open three screens. I'm looking at a laptop now about another. Desktop screened decided in TV running. Right behind it in. You know having a focused conversation with us. This is just I. think rewiring our brains, but the amount of information that you can interact with today's just fantastic. Nobody. Be Thought you could do this and. You know even when I speak to some of our investors. In People Watch. People play video games gets more entertaining than anything. I see on all these three other screens in front of me, so why not? It's A. Fun Safe Place to work right here at home and enjoying. Good content. It's not hurting anyone, so I'm all for it. I'm all for it to. It's content and again it. It highlights that disconnect towards what people enjoy watching you the second degree Buick. People love to watch you play video games because they're not entirely watching the play video games. They're also on their phones. They're also in twitch chat. Unlike a intense netflix's drama, for example where your need to be focused on it, entirely or movie, or even a sporting event where you need to really be focused in people playing video games, you'll play a battle. Royale is very second screen viewing heavy, which just shows how people are consuming content these days. There's. No thank God. I don't have to phones like I said. There's no real end to what you can do, and I think that's what's really unique about what we're trying to do here. Vandam is that. Whether you're watching imbedded stream in the APP, or you're watching. That's stream from another platform because the data comes in, you're really engaging with. On one type of content on two different screens as opposed to watch in two different screens, two types of content on it, so it really. A completes the ecosystem and we can offer benefits to the companies that we partner with. For example from Addis showing on you know a streaming platform can have that admiral in in the hand held device or vice

Behind the scenes at the humanitarian air hub dispatching COVID-19 aid to African nations
"Face mosques a million of them just some of the precious cargo being dispatched to all corners of Africa by the UN as the continent braces for the spread of cove in nineteen managing. This huge task is Amanda Dowdy Senior Director of Operations for the World Food Program will WFP in online interview with you. An uses Daniel Johnson Jordanian national. Mr Dodie takes us behind the scenes at the agency's humanitarian hub in the European capital. Addis Ababa where a U N Wide Supply Chain. Operation is now in full swing. The flights game some came from China on some came from Dubai. It was a combined shipment of Jack Ma Foundation and who own supplies? They arrived in Addis on Tuesday and from there we are moving only consignments to almost fifty countries across Africa so far we have moved up to thirty countries and every day we are completing that consignment right so on the ground then from Addis Ababa. You've reached around thirty countries as you say what's the the final figure Africa now if we African country which ones have called for help. And how is the decision taken about which ones are helped look going to all the African countries in accordance with ovulation in accordance with needs? But the most in need are where the number of cases are flaring up. We have cases in west Africa in Senegal as well as in southern Africa and flights. Today just give me a picture of actually what's happening on the ground in Addis at the humanitarian hub. Everything is working. We allocate the basically parcel or or kit the cargo in accordance to fly throughout that we have so the lanes will depart at this angle to multiple countries. Come back and pick up again. Another would go to multiple vendors. Of course we're using several airplanes in order to reach a maximum. I think today the plan is for thirty countries to receive the locations today and what particular protocols are in place to prevent caveat nineteen transmission. We follow all the procedures in terms of the guidelines of w the national health guidelines. That are in place the social distancing but we also are in a way in even when we transfer Scott Every manager in place including spraying the planes in short that there is no cross contamination even from parcells coming so we follow according to a yet according to Keio we are abiding by these owes to the letter in terms of what happened today when it reaches the country in question. How is the aid distributed? And how you show that. It's getting to where it needs to go. It's the handed over to the Ministry of of the Spectrum Authority of the member states. It's not exactly going to UN agencies or NGOs this is going to member states and the government authorities W in coordination with the local government authorities ensures that all the aid or assistance in terms of medical supplies goes to work. It is neat. Could you say this is an historic sort of arrangement to show solidarity in terms of keeping supply chains going because the secretary general has expressed a lot of concern about global supply chains when code actually hits because yes African countries that have been affected already? But it's really nothing compared with what is going to happen. This was the first flight from Addis. Ababa it was the first test for the international hub as transshipment on to the rest of Africa but also in terms of passenger because as part of our response to call with is a neighboring humanitarian and the health responding to reach the countries. And we are going to be using episode for establishing passenger service again to East Africa would be establishing multiple bessinger services. Because as you know commercial air traffic is moralists suspended so we will be establishing these passenger services to ensure that responders humanitarian workers and all the personnel needed to mitigate a fight. This virus can arrive in countries where they need to and they can also leave where they need to go so we are enabling the humanitarian and responds. To be able to mitigate against this virus. This is Africa. Were talking about. So how is the World Food Program helping places like Yemen? Syria Wall Art of the hub. Will also be providing. It's not only for Africa. It we will be using part of the others as well or Yemen for example but this is not the only in Africa we would have one enact ca one in this above and one in South Africa we have a hop ensue bank in Malaysia for Asia and we have a hump in Dubai for the Middle East. And we have a hub in Panama for Latin American for Central America. So these are all going to be coming online as we speak and they would serve as the respective regions both in terms of cargo as well as in terms of personnel the eventual aim is to help ninety five countries in total all. Actually probably it's GONNA reach almost Henry Than Twenty affected countries so we have the capacity to scale up as needed of course if the funding is provided of course and. How much funding do you need? You're asking what three hundred fifty million dollars. How much do you have so far? We entered sixty was initial request. Now we are revising these figures depending on the data that we are getting supplies. As the sourcing and manufacturing increases we will be increasing our air assets in order to make sure that the supplies getting time to the affected countries enter the countries that needs.

Fighting Fires with Lt. Sarinya Srisakul, FDNY'S First Asian Woman Firefighter
"We're GONNA introduce guest richest guest. You WanNa take it away. Sure thanks this. We have another righteous guest up. She is the first ever Asian American female firefighter for the New York City. Fire departments and now the first Asian women lieutenant in the near New York City Fire Department. Please welcome Serena's Russa cool so perhaps we usually start off with asking our guests like describe what you do right because sometimes stylised or they're in entrepreneur and you have a title where it's like a firefighter. It's pretty planetary on the surface. But I don't think most people know like what really means. Fighter could you kind of simply due in Lieutenant House? Oh yeah so. I'll talk a little bit about finger. Firefighters I and Lieutenant so as a firefighter besides qualifiers you also do a medical calls for accidents stuck elevators electrical water utility emergencies Water main breaks Anything that doesn't neatly fit in the category of like what? Police officer does usually. It's the Fire Department. See something say something. We show up to that Any weird random rescues anyway that that's the fire department and sounds like is like better better to be safe than sorry kind of situations where you show up fully geared up with the big as like trump and and it's like a cigarette. Yeah our code for when they're smoking weed is it. Smells like incense. It smells like wink. Wink City colitis incense situation. So before you get into the lieutenant part what you were saying you do you guys cover pretty much everything that the police department wouldn't cover a lot with them to you. Yeah so they show up Even medical calls US ambulances and them show up so you obviously had your tenure in that space. So y'all can you describe what that sure basically? I'm just the supervisor so boss the boss there is. You're saying firetruck. There was a fire truck. There's a fire engine. The engine was the difference. Engine has hosing them back. So it's like the shorter rig And so out of fire. Engines stretch the hose line and put the fire out right and it's heavy unwieldy hose so you need a team and they're the ones that need the hydrant right the truck. They have the ladders in the back. So they're the ones that do the ventilation and they do the searches so there have the ladders for the people who are trapped inside. Yeah so and with the I guess. The utility emergencies the engines go to medical emergencies and the trucks go to the stock elevators and water leaks. So that's how we divide up tasks. Yeah so when you look at a rid great Either in an engine or truck. The person who's driving is called a chauffeur and the person next to the show for the officer. And it's either a lieutenant or a captain so in every fire company there's three lieutenants and one captain so I'm a brand new lieutenant so I don't have a permanent station right now. So I'm kind of like a substitute teacher. So whenever any officers sick or on vacation I cover their spot for when they're gone. I'm in North Queens. Which is where I'm assigned So as an officer. I'm a supervisor. Supervise the crew. I'm working with for the day and I do the paperwork for like their how they get paid. People were As a crew during the day. Let's say it's a car accident at the work on that. Cpr Do paperwork on that anything like that. That's the job of the officer to do the paperwork for whatever emergency does and make the decisions Of the best things to do in a fire situation the officers go in with the insight team of the truck and You know you help locate the fire if you're in the truck if you're in the engine then you like hall for whatever needs to happen for the crew to bring in to help fight the fire. Okay got you. I mean thousand foes. Luggage very thorough. There's so many different layers to it. A military base allow paramilitary organization. So we want to rewind a little bit about your beginnings in his career like as Joe mentioned early on the First Asian woman firefighter and ESPN. Y Yes I mean. The FDA wide probably existed for what three four Hundred Years Ono sixty three hundred gifts more than a century. Yes obviously in. Women firefighter in its history. Yes I was the only for a long time. I recently told us a little bit about that. Like what like. What made you decide to do that? I like if you could just kind of explain to us what's What was that like? Yeah it is a good question because it is very different and unique for someone like me to go into this world but I was recruited by my friend who really wanted to be be. A firefighter actually went to school. Down THE STREET FROM HERE. I went to Parsons School of design studying illustration that yeah yeah. It was kind of more Typical route even though. It's atypical or school. But there are other Asian women who are and My Friend Really WanNa be a firefighter was living in San Francisco. Came back to New York When New York was hiring Just want to put a note in New York. Only hires once every four years just crazy? Yeah and you have to be seventeen and a half two older than twenty nine. So he can't be older than twenty years old to take the test so I happen to be twenty one at the time and my friend was like just kind of thought. I was a great job and I never really was exposed to any civil service jobs like my mom was a nurse and my dad like worked at a lake at an office. You know For Asian Shipping Company. And so I didn't really was exposed firefighters cops or anything like that and so I got dragged to this orientation that the fire department was having was first time. I met women firefighters and they showed. It was a really corny presentation They showed us like they. Call us. Sizzle reel fire like Microsoft word. Who SO QUIRKY EVENT CALENDARS NO? Hell no hell no it. Was you know honestly it was looking at the other women and seeing how diverse they were me like? They were like short women's hall when they were League. Normal looking. Women are different than them. If they can do it. You know Addis predisposition thought of what that person looked like right as like a normal person would like firefighter. Thousand Two right after nine eleven. It was right after nine. Eleven and everything in the media was not just a man but a white man And how brave they were and this and that and you know. I guess it was more a fear of like. I don't WanNa die like going to work. It was three hundred forty. Three people died that day and it was like this horrible thing that happened. Everyone's like Kinda shellshocked But then you know they addressed it at Orientation. They said like the trainings really good. You get to help people I went to art school after that. I was in communion organizing worked in the nonprofit world for awhile and you know at the end of the day just wanted to help people The nonprofit world doesn't pay very much and I saw how much firefighters were making union job all the retirement. You Know My pension it's twenty years and retire and I'll say oh I can retire my forties. This is great. You know I was really like bought into a and being the first Asian woman I knew at the time I would have been the first one so that really was appealing to me to to break that barrier so I just like went

How NBA commissioner David Stern helped shape the league
"This is a very sad day for the NBA For anybody associated with the League I think for anybody who is a fan of this league fan of the game. Ah Game of basketball period Here or anywhere around the world because David Stern was. I don't WanNa say singularly but certainly of very much responsible for everybody around the world Loving and appreciating this game being able to see this game the expansion of this game and David Stern of of course is No longer with US and Kind of knew this day was coming a few weeks ago when we got the news that he had suffered a brain hemorrhage throughout all of that I kind of stubbornly Felt like this is David Stern. He'll come out of it. I can't imagine I I can't imagine the League has already you've been without him. I can't imagine the world without David Stern and I'm still not sure how to process that. But I did know that when the moment came to have a podcast to discuss thus David stearns legacy and all the complexities of the man That the first person I would wanNA talk to the person sitting across from me in the studio right now. That's my good. The friend former colleague at the New York Times and of course hall of Famer Basketball Hall of Famer Harvey Aronson. Thank you for being good to be here good to be here solemn occasion I I agree and But it's good to be here. Thank you this is. This is tough so we were talking about this a little bit before we started recording and as I just said I can't imagine it's just the the idea that David Stern would Just that he's that he's not among still. There are certain people who you have in such high regard who are such titans titans who are such just just giants of their field or of the world at large that I feel like they're almost unkillable. David Stern like I would not bet on the David Stern versus death. I'm betting on David. Stern like literally going to punch death in the face and said get the fuck Outta here. I ain't ready yet and I I truly I believe these last few weeks ever since the news of the brain hemorrhage that he was going to rally because he is he's as we know he's a fighter and he's stubborn as hell and I figured that would be That would apply across the board and Yeah I still. I still can't quite believe he's gone. You have known him much longer than I have starting in late Seventies. He made his presence felt he was. He was lead counsel will when he came over from his law firm. Proske our rose in these four. Names and FRESCA Rosen Mendelssohn. I always forget the third one pro scour they always I was just called but he made his presence felt around the league and particularly with the media long before he became deputy commissioner in the early eighties and then commissioner in Nineteen Ninety Four. And you know I always found it interesting especially as we went on into the ninety s and into the new century that people looked at the NBA. And they would say you know. David Stern became commissioner. Larry Bird and Magic Magic Johnson entered the League one thousand nine hundred nineteen eighty season and it was a rocket to the moon right from there. And you know it's just a revisionist sense of history because David did not become commissioner until Nineteen eighty-four and bird and magic. Were already in the League. For four years the league was still a very troubled entity. You know almost you know almost a half decade into the bird magic era. There are a lot of issues. There were teams that were said to be on the verge of close of folding there was no salary cap op. There was no drug testing drug plan. A lot didn't happen until David actually became commissioner but those of us who cover the league regularly knew to him and I knew him I knew him from being around but I got my first as we all know our first David Stern phone call. Aw when I was working at the New York Post and I want to say it was probably around. Nineteen eighty one. Maybe and. He's he's Deputy Commissioner Deputy Commissioner or just about to become deputy commissioner and I I had decided as the Knicks beat writer that I was going to befriend Larry Fleisher. Who is the director of the Players Association and fancied myself as pro-labor Grew up in a labor union household and I was going to side with the players before for even knew anything right so I actually let turned over. My story wasn't a column. I think it was a story. Larry Fleisher who proposed doing away with the entire entire NBA draft. Why do we need to draft right? And I'm like you know that makes that makes a lot of sense to me so I write this evolutionary even now much less and you know for several years I kind of win alone and you can kind of make an argument for it. You know. Sort of a free enterprise system right but I wrote the story and David Stern and get a call the next day from Secretary and I pick up the phone and like I said I probably met him three or four or five times and and I answered the phone and he said he gets on and he goes this harvey and I said yes and he goes. I'm going to educate to. I'm going to educate you you for a few minutes. You fucking idiot and we went from there you know. He was merciless but yet always I pulled it back just enough to make you know that you know there's a possibility of lack of actual relationship here. But that was my first recollection of my have of my first. I Real David Stern W up and renew phone call and we all got those. I considered it. I don't know what point I realized is. This was the badge of honor. But this is a badge of honor. And it's funny harvey when we just seeing all the twitter tributes reading everybody's calms the last twenty four hours and we all have as as journalists. Cover this league so much. The same story these very very similar stories of our relationships with David these kind of love hate push rush poll frienemie type relationships where he was both In some ways mentor and Educator especially for you and Ah David our little closer in age so for some of us who came up and he was already well established as the commissioner for a long time before I come into the League or others is that WHO's pieces of red. He's very much kind of almost father figure and besides that he's the keeper of of all the NBA's history and secrets secrets and everything. So he did he would take on this role of like I want to educate. It's funny that he's saying this to you who was basically his almost pure at that point of. He's still doing his job job. He's not even commissioner yet and and you're covering the league but like that's just who he was I guess from the beginning and it certainly is the experience that I had with him and we all yes at some point. Got f-bomb to desk us. I'm glad we can curse on my podcast because David Stern wouldn't have wanted it any other way than for us to say fuck a few times because it was certainly one of his favorite words I I do think that it was probably very different to work for David. I mean reading a lot of the posts today on facebook and twitter twitter from people like Terry Lions and who's part of the communication staff for many years You know saying things like you know you you you didn't arrive at the NBA. Until David Curse you out in for doing something or doing something wrong and our cases I think it was a different different dynamic because to certain extent we did hold some leverage in power. David was marketing his league and it was important Kim particularly in the early years. You know to get the kind of press that he wanted for the sport and the kind of coverage for the athletes. He was trying to sell. So I think to a certain to a certain extent that you know that pullback from the total annihilation that David was capable of was inevitable because he wanted to Always maintain that relationship I remember in one of the Ninety S lockouts. He had a press conference was an update In the middle of lockout and the Times who's had a sign just kind of out of the Blue Murray Chasse who was a chroma generally baseball writer writer and columnist to cover the NBA lockout and Murray was long known to be essentially an ally of the Baseball Writers Association Association. I mean practically slept with ball them going too far but with G.. Those guys I mean it was. He was clearly pro row union in just about everything he wrote and Murray had written a series of articles for the Times that were clearly anti-star anti league and supporting the players. And I remember I was talking to David but after the press conference and Joel Lipman one of the attorneys attorneys with standing nearby and David started to say something to me. That sounded like you know one of these. I'm going to tell you in confidence. You know what's really going on. And y'all grabbed him by the arm and said David David Wait. Wait wait and David turned around and looked at Joel and said this is not Murray. Hey this is harvey and implicit in that or not. So implicit was the notion that I'm on their side. Not that I'm always going to write it the way they want want. I'm one of the regulars. There was a real difference if you one of the regular news who covered that sport and he kind of understood because I I will say this. We all WANNA be impartial. You'll want to write what we think. But it's particularly in the early eighties. Through the the end of that decade as League began to push more and more higher and higher and out of that ditch that it was in you know in the late seventies that all of us who covered the league felt a real pride that we were part of something that was growing. That was something special and David Sense that in all of us I could name you know whether there is Bob Ryan Alien Verizon you know Jan Hubbard Jack McCallum. I think it was. I think he looked at us. Not Addis he's guys or his writer so we're going to. You know who are going to adhere to is disciplined. Alright well what he wanted to but ultimately that we were pro. NBA Hey we believed in the product and we loved it we love the sport and believe in it and that was the difference. I think some of that changed in the later years when he felt this. There was some people coming along. Who are sort of interlopers? Who didn't necessarily have the League's best interest at heart? You know it's interesting too because you're describing you know a- and a general atmosphere in terms of the media and the sports world in general that that I think maybe a lot of my listeners or a lot of fans today probably don't have a true understanding of just because it was a very different world back then basketball was a distant third at best and you know baseball was still the national pastime and football was already a Bima and the NBA. You know forget whether the teams that were possibly going to fold in in the early eighties. When David I took over as commissioner it just the sport as a whole just didn't have the foothold in the capture of the of the collective the public's imagination that it has today this sport is a global a phenomenon of its own and that wasn't the case back then so it was probably really important and earlier on for David to to be able to identify that right? That's a that those of you covered league on a regular basis. Did so because you believed in basketball and believe in the NBA is a sport that that it wasn't just this little niche sport in America that would forever be overshadowed by football and baseball that it was that it had its own distinct identity in promise and and could be on on equal footing with those sports. I mean today. We don't have that discussion that the NBA is here and it is huge and it is to be reckoned with maybe the predictions of overtaking the NFL were a little premature but the NBA. It's I think people today might take for granted not realizing ising how far it had to come and so I think probably did shape a lot of how David saw the coverage and why he was so protective of it and when you talk about or any of US talk about David Redeeming us out and dropping dropping f bombs and whatever else. It's not because it was ever personal and it's not because we had fucked up that badly. Although occasionally we might have. David was just very protective protective of an advocate fierce advocate for his league. And so that's why I didn't mind badge of honor thing is like I kind of understood where he was coming from after awhile now cinder understood that if I pushed back and held my ground and especially if I did have a solid ground extent.
Combatting Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
"Alcoholic Fatty liver. Diseases is more prominent now than any of those other your liver conditions. I know so this is a scary thing right. Yeah Yeah and basically What it is is it's a fatty liver and non alcoholic fatty liver disease? It's kind of an umbrella. Term for a spectrum of different chronic liver conditions conditions. And basically what it is. It's it's when the there's an excessive accumulation of fat in the cells of the liver and and the reason why the term non alcoholic fatty liver disease is used is because it's happening people who do not consume alcohol. It says it's it's the exact same type of disease as psoriasis of the liver which is caused by excessive alcohol consumption except it's happening and people who don't drink drink alcohol such as children. Oh my so. So why is that happening right. What so what what? The science is showing. Is that sugar and specifically fructose and it could even come from refined carbohydrates being broken down into sugar in the body that when there's a an excessive amount of sugar to deal with the liver the the main one of the main roles of the liver aside from detoxifying vying everything that comes through our bloodstream. Another one of its main roles is to Deal with sugar like you know. We're either the liver is either going to send that sugar out to the rest of the cells in the body for them to use for energy. Because that's what mainly mainly what sugar or what we call glucose for if there's an ex more glucose that can be used for energy at any one time that glucose circulates back to the liver and the liver Does one of two things with it. It can convert it into a compound called glycogen which is a way to store the glucose for short term and then be able to bring it out again and use it for energy but then when there's even when when glycogen storage is full in it's not it's a limited capacity so can only hold so much when it's full. The rest of the glucose has to get converted into fat And oftentimes you know some of that. Fat goes to other parts of the body to the other fat cells everywhere in every other part of the body however a lot of it. Kinda in a stays and accumulates in the cells of the liver and then what happens is y it creates injury to the liver. Cells is because it starts starts to kind of crowd out and literally choke the cells of the liver to death o'malley Creating something called. He Paddock necrosis process which is basically death of liver cells. Oh Mine and that's what. Psoriasis is. When the cells deliver start dying So so it's a pretty serious thing and we know it's linked now to high-fructose Corn Syrup consumption and high carbohydrate consumption especially refined carbohydrate One thing to note route is that fructose is a different kind of Simple sugar in the liver. It gets converted into glucose so it's just another form. I'm of sugar. It's and in the liver. It's you know it's got up it. Fructose goes directly to the liver. So it's like an even more of an insult rather than glucose host going to deliver first and then all the cells for energy. Fructose goes to deliver directly first and then gets dealt with their first. It doesn't go out the rest of the cells so so taxing on those very taxing. Yeah it's a little bit of fructose is okay. It's you know it's kind of the body's can the design to deal with that but when it's an excessive amount it's it's toxic. It's a very big burden on the liver so that's why this is happening earnings so Now one of the things that were were seeing. Is You know basically what happens is there's a couple of things sometimes sometimes the When fatty liver and his is in it's kind of earlier stages and the fats? Just kind of accumulating in the liver and it's not causing damage yet yet That's the early stage and we kind of say that that sort of more like the you know there's no real like cirrhosis happening in the liver and you can deal with it at that earlier stage it can. We can take dietary measures them. We can intervene. Yeah exercise and that type of thing when it starts progressing going into the more serious form of cirrhosis then it is called has a different name. It's called non-alcoholic St Outta Hepatitis Addis or NASA H Nash And in that sit in that situation the accumulation of fat causes severe inflammation that damages the liver cells and that's what leads to the scarring And impairing liver function so now your liver you know. It does a lot of things one of of the biggest things as I mentioned that it does it it. It's a filter and it a it creates a lot of enzymes to help us detoxify everything even even even caffeine. You know when you drink a cup of coffee tea or chocolate or whatever. There's caffeine in their caffeine has to be broken down in the liver to to in order to kind of remove it from the body So something as simple as that versus something like the pollution that you're exposed to Medicare you take the all get dealt with in the liver to break them down into nontoxic Basically metabolites that are flushed out of the body. Normally that's the normal situation when the liver is Impaired in any way then those things happen and then you have build up of toxicity in the body so you become septic yes philly you die. I mean over time this can occur right from the liver not being able to do what. It's exactly so so to to think that this is happening in children now is it. It's hard to to consider that this is what's going on so So order so so. What are some things that we can do to remedy some of this so So one of the you know in in addition to removing refined find carbohydrates from your diet increasing vegetable and fruit intake There's an a an ancient herb called milk thistle That has been used for thousands of years to treat liver disorders anything from Hepatitis to just overall general liver healing and cleansing so It's a very liver supportive herb And it's really interesting because it has compounds in that that can literally like kind of like regenerate the the healing of the cells in the liver so if there's damage that's not too far gone It can help it in fact it has even been shown in with people. Who are alcoholics? Even those who are on a waiting list for a liver transplant ends plant or people who have hepatitis that it exp- first of all taking milks us. All in supplement form can extend their life Extend their ability to wait for that liver transplant. And then once the liver transplant is done. It also extends their life expectancy see for after the transplant. So it's a pretty amazing

Ethiopian Officials Release Preliminary Report
"Wrong in the crash of a Boeing seven thirty seven max plane in Ethiopia that killed all one hundred and fifty seven people on board. We have some answers this morning safety investigators in Ethiopia released their report today, and they concluded that the pilots didn't do anything wrong. They followed the instructions from Boeing on how to operate the plane, although they still couldn't control the aircraft. When it started to go down. This was the second crash involving that line of Boeing planes in five months and it prompted countries around the world to ground all seven thirty seven max planes NPR's. Russell Lewis has been covering the strain joins us. Now, Russell Boeing had been suggesting recently that at least in part of the reason for the crash could have been user air this. The report by the OPN investigators seems to clear the pilots of any wrongdoing, right? On the surface. Yes. It is a preliminary report we don't expect the final report to be released perhaps for another year. So obviously, there are still some findings that will change. There are still some analyses that obviously still need to happen. But this is the preliminary report, and essentially it said that the takeoff it appeared very normal. But what happened not long afterwards was that the nose of the plane pitched down violently towards the earth. And really here is the key part, which eat the opium airlines actually tweeted out in response as this news conference was still going on. And it was this that the pilots had been following the recommendations that Boeing had put in the checklists and approved by the Federal Aviation Administration. But it was still not enough to prevent this plane from crashing her. So a lot of the focus in the past few weeks has been on this new flight control software that was in these planes. Does the report mention this at all not really? An ineffective didn't really quite come out. You know in this report reporters at this news conference in Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian capital did ask about it today. But it was sort of a a bit beyond the scope of of what they were talking about. But what you're seeing in some of the statements that are coming out is that this plane was had a persistence of nosediving when it before it crashed in that the crew was following the recommendations that Boeing had had put in place, and I think you know, that this certainly increases the pressure on Boeing, and I think it also calls into question though, why wasn't the Boeing seven thirty-seven max fleet grounded after that. First crash, the lion or crashed into Asia in October. And then the United States several days to ground these planes while other countries went ahead with it. Yeah. That's right. You know? And clearly Boeing knows that has a problem. It was working on the software fix to try to fix. What wrong went went wrong in the Indonesia crashed or knock? Tober and on the surface, it seemingly appears as the same thing that happened last month in the THEO P and airlines crash. You know, a crash that killed one hundred fifty seven people in as we say it puts the pressure firmly back on Boeing, and you know, by default on the Federal Aviation Administration. You know, the the regulator in the United States Russell stay with us. I want to bring in another voice to the conversation. Peter goals who will have a view on the federal government's role here. He's the former managing director for the National Transportation Safety board, Mr. goals. Thanks for being with us. Thank you for having me. What do you see is the single most important finding in this report? Well, that the pilots followed the procedures as outlined by Boeing and confirmed by the FAA following lion air. I mean, it was it was kind of an arrogant directive, I think that Boeing put out after the accident, which essentially said read them in Ewell and fly it, and you should be. Ok well, apparently, you're not and that is. A big deal not only for Boeing, but for the FAA that signed off on it. Right. So does this mean that responsibility for the at least the THEO paean airlines crash based on this report lies squarely at the feet of Boeing. Well, we don't know that yet because as was indicated the report was very preliminary. And I think a couple of other interesting things one is they discounted the idea that there was a bird strike that through the angle of attack indicator off, and they discounted that the tape takeoff was in any way unusual. But clearly the spotlight is turned on ever brighter on both Boeing and the certification procedures. But like Russell mentioned they had already been working on this software glitch. I mean, do you see that as something? That's that's far. Bigger problem than Boeing is actually acknowledging. Well, I think that the FAA just announced it they're going to have a certification commission that's going to review process. This plane is not going to get back in the air right away and the fix. I think is going to be reviewed extensively before anything is approved. I think we've got a ways to go. I mean, the hard thing is I'll put this to both of you. There are a lot of different factors that go into trying to explain why an airplane crash happens, right? Russell russell. Yeah. Absolutely. You know in any aviation accident. It is it is not one thing that causes a crash. It has many small things that cause a crash and that all sort of comes together. And so you look at pilot training, you you look at you know, how the pilots were on you know, during that flight where they overly fatigued. Did they get enough rest the night before they look at the aircraft? They look at the air traffic controllers. There are many things that sort of play into it. And it is not one thing. It is many many things that you know, that that play into it, which is why these investigations take so long, but clearly many questions about Boeing and about its fleet, you know, continue to bubble up. What kind of long-term damage has this done to Boeing do? You think Peter? I think Boeing is in a very difficult position. You know, it is in a highly competitive situation with Airbus they brought the seven thirty seven max to the market on a very expedited basis this has damaged their reputation, and they are going to have to work hard to regain their position. And it's also damaged the FAA frankly, and they're going to have to work hard to regain their gold standard as the regulatory agency of record for the world. And you say damage the FAA because there have been questions about whether the FAA of delegated too much to Boeing to do its own safety checks. Absolutely. There's numerous investigations that are going to go on to see whether Boeing head the capability internally to do a rigorous review of this complex system. And it's not clear that they did. Just real quick Russell has Boeing given a response to this report yet. Yeah. In fact, I reached out to Boeing this morning to to sort of get their take on it. And I got a terse six word answer for them. And it was this. We are reviewing the preliminary findings that was it NPR's. Russell lewis. We also weren't conversation with Peter goals. Former managing director for the National Transportation Safety board. Thanks to both of you. We appreciate it. You're welcome. Thank you.

Why grounding 737 MAX jets is a big deal for Boeing
"Britain, Singapore and destroy earlier have become the latest airlines to ground Boeing seven three seven max airplane after two deadly crashes in the past five months in the latest on Marsh, the tense virtually new Boeing seventy seven max airliner crashed near Addis Abba within minutes of taking off killing all one hundred forty nine passengers and eight crew aboard in October last year, a similar crash kills one hundred and eighty nine people in the sea off Indonesia, the crushes raise questions about the safety of the American aircraft makers top-selling planes. Charles read, the economists travel blogger caliber has been following the story. Charles, obviously, the superficial similarities between these two crashes alarming, but we're still waiting for the authorities to review the black boxes and give a ruling how unusual is it for countries to ground planes before that ruling has come when it has happened before two in twenty fifteen with Boeing seven eight seven there Republicans with bury the an lithium ion batteries on that plane and painter grounded for free months. The I think the big difference is Vert those bat trees and didn't cause any fake lack since at which which killed passengers whereas the possible problems which caused these two crashes have killed quite significant numbers of people. And if we look at new playing types in general, you planes, don't tend to crash so not only to have one two crashes of neuro playing is rather worrying. Whether or not at this. They've crashes because by the same problem, what is the company bearing itself saying about this and what about its own domestic regulators in America bearing hasn't said much safer. I mean pulp because it's raw the busy trying to scramble to find out. What's what's gum wrong? It says it's providing technical assistance to the authorities. It's promised to launch a new software update by next month, which should ensure that the same problem which occurred on the lion air crash in Indonesia last year shouldn't reoccur, but that's fee at the PR machine has has shut down in the at. They were going to launch the new aircraft new long-haul aircraft called the seven seven x tomorrow, and that was canceled because and they have Bravo distracted socio problems with the seven three seven max at the moment. But just presumably this is pretty serious. Burnings business. These are amongst the biggest selling planes, aren't they and one of its its biggest single market, China whose grounded them. Well, it's estimated that these planes produce, I e two thirty five percent of Boeing's revenues. So that perspective it's pretty serious, and the market's taking it seriously in the chef price of the company is fooling significantly over the past two days. However, some boosters say that this is an exaggeration be affect this problems may point to the fact the Airbus's share prices only increased by about one percent of the past day. Fez, any two major companies which produce airliners bearing an Airbus if Boeing is home by this vessel EVA's must benefit by the same amount. However, I didn't think that's entirely full Sewri going on here because opponent has flied thousand orders from seven free seven max eight, but if you're an airline, which has offered this aircraft. You don't have anyone else really to go to to buy them. You could go to Airbus Airbus doesn't have any capacity to make any more planes. I've the next six or seven years it's having a few production difficulties delays, which means vote. It's struggling to produce for one's favor. What he have on older. And so in theory at Boeing's actually, relatively safe position on that in this and people can't walk away and try to get the pain some somewhere else. But the two aspects were Boeing could be hit hard is firstly. This grounding is prolonged and if this groundings Pallone can't deliver the planes. It's made to customers and the customers don't pay Boeing the money for the planes. I'm I'm this means Boeing could have been increasing number of jetliners cluttering up its runways knits taxi raises production facilities. I'm this could be a big drop in a revenue initially and also in the longer term. You could have. Problem with pricing in the yes, they can't go to add bus to buy an extra platens in the medium term. But they could offer discounts from Barings hang obese planes and not particularly safe. There's reputational risk associated with them. And they could offer big discounts and this could reduce bearings. Revenues considerably cantata Abbas in the years to come from what you're saying the business worries not too overwhelming for bang the moment, but in public relations terms, this must be pretty serious. A yes, this is this is very serious fall fall that in the end, I think what highlights the seriousness is that people didn't really cab while plane they flew on. And then you'd be -cational aviation. Geek who would care whether they flying on air. I saw begging and if the pulse two days has been a massive change in public perception about this. People are calling up airlines. People tweeting airlines people are talking on. Blogs and internet. Forums about is fight. I'm gonna go on the bearing on Airbus flight and people are very worried about flying about is plane, and it might well be possible that this plane becomes the first plane will have the traveling public do not want to fly on and we'll pay extra money to avoid, and that's very very serious for the airlines which have bought this plane and very serious in the many of these airlines might not want these planes in years to come Charles one of our colleagues, Charlotte Howard, the bureau chief of New York recently had a terrifying. Experience aboard another burning plane. I think this one was seventy seven nine hundred not the seventy seven max. But she's been telling me about it. I was on a plane from Newark airport to Houston on Sunday night to go to an energy conference unlim-. We're about forty minutes from Houston. There was a bright flash of light. What looked to me like flames? And a violent shaking of the plane when we got closer to the ground as we were on the verge of landing several hundred feet in the air or not many thousands of feet in the air as we had been before. There were more consistent sparks or more consistent flashes or flames. So after we had landed the lights went out and the crews said evacuate the plane. I was near the rear of the plan. So I went out of went down the inflatable slide in the back and other passengers exited over the wings of the airplane and through inflatable sides at the front of the aircraft. The next day. The FAA said there was no evidence of fire. But the report did say that the engine failed shortly before landing. No one was hurt, thankfully, and there were just lots of anxious people understandably in the airport after this head occurred who seemed to be reluctant to get on. Airplane again anytime soon. How does that play into Barings PR nightmare? Well, that plane was a seven free seven nine hundred sevices a previous generation of playing. It sounds like the problems were with more with the engine than the plant cell from the engines are made by different companies to be at rest of the aircraft. However, I'm I don't think the average member of the public was discriminates between the two, and it's probably done the damage to Barings reputation Weber on all sets for saying multiple plane

"Two decades, the people of era trail and east Africa have lived in isolation. Their borders were closed after the outbreak of war with Ethiopia, they're larger southern neighbor. But in July, the two countries struck a historic peace deal soldiers put down their weapons and last month crowds cheered as border crossings open. Era trains confined in a police state described as the North Korea of Africa suddenly had a safe Safeway out many headed for Addis Ababa the capital of Ethiopia. Freedom. It can move anywhere. Do anything. I won't the reason to stay here. Well, I lower. We used side people saying things about the freedom, and I came here, and I wasted I witnessed it's true. Indifferences spits the most important the pricing issue for me, mentally, I'm free. I. The war with Ethiopia cost. Tens of thousands of lives it officially ended in two thousand but the one party government in arid trae used the threat from its neighbor to close borders and justify his policies marriage has been dubbed, the North Korea Africa, and the reason full that is because since the war ended. I mean retry has basically it's been a prison state. This is Tom Gardiner Addis Ababa correspondent for the economist. He went to the border and interviewed era trae who were leaving the country. You come leave without a special exit visa granted by the government, which is basically impossible to come by for the vast majority of the population who are in indefinite nationals service, which is sort of military and civilian conscription, which every era train of the age of eighteen is is enrolled in and since two thousand and two has been has been indefinitely. So people have absolutely no no opportunities. The. They face a life of basically, dulack labor, building dams or roads forced labor, essentially a life life in the military for as long as they can can see Tom since the border reopened. What is it that you've been seeing you have a lot of at the moment. A lot of women and children who are registering as refugees in order to to registered a family reunion. You have families which were divided because of the war parents in that children, even I met so many Aratani for Europeans both of them who have family members on either side, and they haven't seen them for twenty years. I met Eric trends in Addis, and at the border towns who are trying to reach out us, in many cases who said they are fleeing national service once they heard that the border was open. They fled. And it's kind of hard to figure out why the air drian administration would want to to open the gates, and and you know, I'm basically let all of that that free labor out. Why why do you suppose they've done that I'm into that's the million dollar question. No one's quite sure. That doesn't seem to be a great deal of logic to it. And the government has made absolutely zero announcements one explanation as it. It's a pressure valve allowing potential troublemakers to leave the country rather than Stirrup unrest inside our trial. So this kind of political logic that ten -cially there is one possible economic explanation, which is that the are trying to Colombia's kept afloat by remittances, which the government then taxes. So potentially those a stream of income that comes with allowing people to leave. But it's still it's very unclear what the possible motivation is him. Between two thousand fourteen and twenty sixteen era. Trae have became Africa's largest single source of refugees to Europe many of those who've left since the borders opened in September say they have no intention of returning home. How did you feel when you? About the peace of the board of Don. How was much Salama Salvaterra? I feel so happy rain day. He started a mint. Retold not sure service. We leaned that the didn't. So that's why we just came here. Risque? And do you think any of the young people desire to go back to to trae? Or is this they all they want to escape. The little one supporter was opened plus of Yan people just immediately floor. Floor in tape you? They don't want to go back to see if. Tom many of these people who are leaving our tree at may only have known life under a police state. I suspect it wasn't all that easy to get them to talk to you. Yes..

Mean she's fully aware of where she comes from she's aware of her personal history and she definitely wants to go back. And we want her to go back and we want to show her. Addis Ababa where we where we picked her up region Durant where she. Was born and we want her to see and experience all of those. Things but in due time what I don't understand is for people. On the left who think, it's an act. Of cultural imperialism for a beautiful and loving and very intact family like the French is, to adopt. A little girl who lost her own parents and her and you tell the story in. Your Your piece which we've post our website at Michael Medved. Dot com and has lost her grandmother Do they think it she would be better off just staying in Ethiopia Well. You know that's always the. Unclear things here I don't think it's. Unclear, I think it's very clear she's better off, in the French household well it's clear to us that she's better off but that's? When I say unclear thing is what is their, alternative that they offer because if they're saying it's worse for the kids? What I, want to, know, is how is it worse for the kids I mean you know and and if you say that you've got a better plan. For, the children and then Naomi being raised as raised as our, daughter, well I'd love to hear it because I don't see it anywhere and and that's the one, part at one, of the things that's so tough to take about, this is that you you are in, the process of raising a child loving that child with, your whole heart giving that child everything that you can give that child and there are people saying you're bad, for her your. For now I'm not. Gonna say that there aren't. Bad adoptive parents adopted parents are human beings they're going to be bad Dr parents just like there's bad parents who? Don't adopt but to say simply because of her, race her nationality that we're going to be inadequate bad parents for her? And other, alternatives would, have, been better for her I just I just flat out don't buy it what do you say to those people who who would. Argue, that with all other things being equal if there were literally, thousands, of black couples who wanted to adopt Niamey would you grant that there might be an argument, that adopting a, child that looks like her parents would be a, better thing well here's what I would, grant it I would say if they're of loving couples, and families who are able to and will re ready willing and able to adopt into provide the kind of, home that we. Can provide I think. All other things being equal I think that there would be some real benefit to, that but that's not the world that we live in one of the things that. I say in my piece is that There is not a demographic match. In this world between the parents who wants to adopt in the kids who needed option, there.
