There are certain sentences accord or something but have support him that just springs up bent. The conditions are really tough. I'm climbing exhausted and the going gets very very tough.

I get into that meditative state also but i contemplate the nature of life seeing a mountain see a mountain the stance alone so anybody who is strong mighty and wants to rise high.

"Someone you know in your community. Friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, someone at the bridge club, somebody, a church or the synagogue, Somebody that you know, and therefore your defenses are down. And they don't even know that they've been defrauded because it could take months or years to discover that that thing you invested in is actually a con. So you need to watch out. The SEC is just charged a Swedish individual who's living in Thailand with a multi million dollar online fraud. Why would I be talking about a case involving Ah Swede living in Thailand? Because this guy snared thousands of investors worldwide, including 2000 in the United States on DH 45 other countries and lot of the people who were defrauded. Are members of the deaf hard of hearing and hearing loss communities. He was selling a pre funded reverse pension plan or whatever that is falsely claiming that it's run by award winning economists. He was promising a payout based on the value of gold claim there was no risk of loss. Everybody lost everything. In Los Angeles, There was a $180 million scheme that defrauded 1600 religious investors. They were sold gold and silver at exorbitant prices. They got sales pitches through phone calls and social media word spread within their community. Everybody invested and everybody lost lots of money. The SEC has recently settled charges against a guy named Milton Docile Jr of Colorado. He defrauded cadets at the U. S Air Force Academy over a two year period 41 investors Lost hundreds of thousands of dollars. He said he would date trade stocks for them and promised weekly returns of get this 10%. That's over 500% a year. Cadets at the Air Force Academy all excitedly telling each other about this great investment opportunity, and they all Crashed and burned. The SEC. And here's our fourth case, the SEC charged to Maryland companies recently and their principles for defrauding 1200 investors, many of them African immigrants. Of more than $27 million Dennis Jelly, John Frimpong and Charlie Johnson through their company's first million and the Smart partners promised risk free returns of six toe 42% by trading and foreign exchanges and crypto currencies. The says they targeted African immigrants. And exploited their common ancestry and religious affiliations. In fact, one of the guys claim to be a pastor of one of these groups and they took everybody's money and spent it On personal use. You've got to be really careful and one of the things that a lot of folks are engaging in these days. Is the election because what better way to get your attention? Then we're talking about the upcoming election with assertion that because of the election I've got this great investment strategy that is going to either protect your money or make you rich, all as a result of inside info. I have that you don't and this is the kind of nonsense that people espouse. But unfortunately, a lot of folks Fall victim to it. And this is a big part of the reason that I have created this new Webinar. I mentioned it to you earlier in the programme. We're launching the Webinar Tuesday, October 13th. Twice on that evening, 8 P.m. and 11 P.m. Eastern time. It's free, and I'm inviting you to attend because we're very concerned that a lot of folks are trumpeting and touting and exploiting the election. And encouraging you to change your investment strategy based on who they're claiming, is going to win the election on the implications of all that occurring in fact. Half of all Americans who were polled say that they're planning to make changes to their investments because of the elections. And that means if you're thinking of changing your investment strategy anyway, and someone comes along and says to you, I've got a thing to help you get rich. As a result of the elections. Well, you could just become victimized by the whole thing. If you're a conservative dealing and conservative chat rooms, or you're a liberal dealing in liberal chat rooms. And everybody starts talking about. Hey, I just did this thing because of that, and you could just see how it swells and grows and that affinity fraud. Kicks in. And that's why I want to help you set the record straight. I want to give you the facts. I want to show you historically what has happened under different presidential administrations.

The Air Force Struggles With Diversity. Can The Space Force Do Any Better?

"The newest branch of the military just promoted its first female three star general. The US Space Force also recently appointed the nation's first all women space operations team. Top space force leaders say gender and racial diversity is a core part of the mission. But his Colorado public Radio's Dan Boyce reports, some female veterans are skeptical. First Lieutenant Kelly McKay serves with the all female Space Operation Squadron stationed at Schriever Air Force Base near Colorado Springs, The squadron command's one of the country's GPS satellites. I obviously never gotten work on all female crew for these were women that I've I wanted to work with their close friends of mine and co workers. The work of the space force is almost entirely digital Space Force members operates satellites and other national space assets from computers down on Earth. Lieutenant McKay says an all female squadron makes a bold statement for the military's news branch. I'm hoping that women will see that they have more opportunities, and they might have realized growing up as long as they're actively seeking out the women to come there. They have a great opportunity to be the the service that leads the way Don Christensen is president of the nonprofit Protect Our Defenders. The group focuses on reducing discrimination in the military. The space force grew out of the Air Force last December, Christensen says It's continuing the airforce tradition of a better gender balance than the other branches. But he worries the space force could continue another worrisome course when it comes to racial disparity there force with worst in analyzing military data Person's sins team found black airman 70% more likely than their white peers to get court martialed or receive other punishments. The air Force is own data shows that trend getting worse in recent years. Nevertheless, in just the last few months a couple of milestones confirmation of the first Black Air Force Academy superintendent and then the first black Air Force chief of staff General Charles Q. Brown Jr. Here's Brown's own candid assessment of the challenges ahead. I can't fix centuries of racism in our country, nor can I fixed decades, discrimination may have impacted members of our Air force. How much to make of these nominations depends on who you talk to. While we're very proud of gentle brown. It's It's so even Pacheco is a recently retired air force commanding officer. Photo op Shea. We like, like people. We like minority. Yea, we promoted on so don't complain anymore, okay? And we're like, Okay, So what? We want to see his action. What policies? Are you going to drive? What changes? Are you going to drive? She argues the ways to report discrimination in the space force are all inherited from Thie Air Force. And if you don't restructuring I honestly I don't. I'm not sure that you'll be able to restructure. I don't know. I just think they might continue get away with it. Unfortunately. Pacheco says As discrimination charges work their way up the chain of command senior officers often suppress reports to avoid looking bad themselves. They're going to be shaped to encourage honest communication, the space force's chief diversity and inclusion. Officer Carrie Baker says They've already placed heavy emphasis on developing open minded leaders and pushing them to learn about unconscious biases, even to the point where one should be careless enough to Speaks to their leadership about concerns that they have without concern of retribution. Baker says. The space force has targeted outreach initiatives to recruit women and people of color. Keep your eye on us. We're going to make you proud Tanya would nightie professional.

She compares the all female crew to the Tuskegee Airman, Those heralded black fighter pilots from World War two. That was an experiment. But was it sustainable? You know, do we still have that level of diversity? Now? She wonders if the space force doesn't address fundamental challenges involving race and gender.

"On their back deck, watching the storm's rolling over Pike's peak. One of my greatest memories, just the grandeur and beauty of nature. Just wonderful. Anyway. Plus you get the air Force Academy there and you have people. Ah, parachuting all the time. You could just stop by the side of the highway and watch people jumping out of planes. Big fun. The way I suggest we talk to this doctor, some alternate doctor, and I don't use that term dismissively. Not there, Nick. No, no, no, no. Everybody on the whole that is disrespectful. Who says Let's see the way they're being used is pointless and possibly harmful. Ah, hot homemade cotton masks or just Petri dishes for bacteria and do little if nothing to protect yourselves or others around you. Um ah. You find that somewhat compelling and interesting as I remember thinking about that reading about that When I first started getting into masks I live somewhere masks have been mandatory to go inside businesses for four months now. I mean, we're way early. But the idea that you know you're getting those droplets on your mask, and then you're handling your mask ass and you might have been better off without it in that case, but well, yeah, okay. So to the Petri dish thing, you know, take it off now and again. Throw it in the Washington throat in the washing machine. You're supposed to do that, anyway, so that that's for stupid people. And I'd like to think I'm not among them, Joanne, But, you know, cautioning the dimwit is God's work, and I'm glad you did it. On the other hand, I have had two experiences lately that were incredibly illuminating. No pun intended. Number one hanging out with some buds on a friend's back patio as the sun went down, and we were laughing and joking and the rest of it and I have been a couple of cocktails. I don't recall. But a buddy of mine was holding forth solving the problems of the world, very bright guy, and and he was backlit. By the sun perfectly to the point where I had sunglasses on, but it was kind of hard to look at him. I had to keep his head between me and the sun. Every word, he said, particularly when he got animated was accompanied by a on astounding amount number off saliva droplets. I mean more than you can believe. Also During the wintertime. I take Baxter out his final trip outside to do his business round 88 30 at night, depending on and I have a big flashlight, partly toward off beasts that might be in my backyard. And I have lived the edge of nature skunks specifically. But anyway, at one point I'm shining a flashlight around. I gotta kind of held up close by my chest slash chin and I coughed. And the spray. The cloud of droplets that went through the shaft of the light shot me growth. It is a little gross, but it was really interesting, too. Also the amount of dust and crap you breathe and every shirt. It's astounding. Just the systems we have in our bodies to then get rid of that. But If you cover that talking that coughing that sneezing that shouting whatever with a mask that will cut down the spray the cloud of droplets. You have no idea you're putting out it will cut it by 80% 90%. Okay, well, I could make all the difference. It's one deniable. That's the science of it, which I'm on board with. So how about the Ah either? The government controlling US or You know all that sort of stuff. I just I am so worried about a really rights which are being trample on my senses. My sense is that that's most of it. It's the government telling you to wear a mask. I'm not going to do what the government tells me to do. Which is an impulse. I kind of appreciate it. I do, too. I'm I'm that's what I'm saying is, I'm way down that road. Like past the road of what what passed the point of what most people think is normal on that road. But I am wearing a mask.

"Give us a little bit of background just like a quick elevator. Pitch on John. What what have you been known for? What are you doing now? Yeah so I started flying in high school. Got The bug hooked and I wanted to go sir. By countries so best of both worlds is able to go fly in the Air Force has been twelve years flying air force mix from being a t six instructor pilot flying that sixteen and eventually the being. F16 DEMO pilot edges recently transitioned into airlines flying. A triple seven right now. Right on very cool. So let's start at the beginning then so you started flying in highschool tells about where you got the bug and how that love for aviation started. I Group A community. That was just full of aviation a lot of Delta pilots. Round where I live in all our ex air force next navy guys and my neighbor actually took me flying in a piper cub but a day it was like seventy degrees as absolutely beautiful door open when cruising around. I think that was the first Hook I had put in me for aviation. My Dad was a big influence. He wasn't a pilot but he saw it as a great career. Opportunity to kind of push me in that direction and so I was fortunate to have someone who wanted to teach of a friend of mine. Fly His son. He wants you to send out a fly but he wanted to teach them to fly with someone so I was fortunate to be able to be that other person and me and my friend were taught how to fly. My I fly was on September tenth. Two thousand one. So the next day I was is a big moment for so many across the world little in America so when September eleventh happened that really solidified my desire to WanNa go serve and if I go serve while flying two birds with one stone and was fortunate. That's where I put all my effort in high school was to get an ROTC scholarship. Go in and get a pilot slot and then flying air force now. That's amazing I think for me. No connection to nine eleven. I think I took my first flight less than a year after that. So yeah September Eleventh. Two thousand two so wild and crazy now coming up with me. It's almost two decades ago right so there's so many people that you know in op. See Our age no it lifted everyone holderness no it and lived it but you know being the demo pilot going out and talking to kids. Now there's just we now have the first generation of Americans serving in the military who were born after September eleventh. Yeah so is just. It's such a such a big event moment in history for so many people and it's crazy to hear the different stories and then you go dig up my logbook and take a picture of an shared or something because it is kind of wild. I remember another friend of mine that has a similar store to you is working the financial sector nine eleven happened and then he became. He became an air force pilot as well. He ended up in the rapture. But you know he. He felt the call as well so Can you walk us through? What the process for you as like say in high school to get to that point where you're qualifying to be a fighter pilot. I don't know if that's like an acceptable her. But you're obviously shooting for something there. So what's that process like to actually get in a position to be able to do that so for me? I think most people the average is a very long process. They're opposites exceptions to someone who monitoring have their degree in apply saucer training school which is a shorter condensed program and they go off and become a pilot but on average most people commission become officers in the Air Force which you had to offer to be a pilot most people commission through the Air Force Academy which is a four year college military school out in Colorado Springs or through ROTC which is at most universities across the nation. So I did ROTC Georgia Tech. But you start queuing yourself up in high school because you have to be competitive in order to get into. Rotc or get into Air Force Academy so mine started really like eighth ninth grade looking to see whether requirements were in order to get a ROTC scholarship or get into the Air Force Academy which is good. Gpa's good sat be well rounded so be involved in sports or working but they also want to see in those processes of work or your club or sports that over the course of three or four years you go from. Yeah the guy who just joined the group to being the club president or being the team captain. Because they're looking for leadership ability so it really cute up early on and it was a long path just to get ROTC and get into college and then once you get into ROTC or college Air Force Academy. The process kind of starts all over again. Because you're competing with everyone who's shown up at the end of school your junior year. That's really when most people find out what they're going to do in the Air Force. Three years to develop as a leader develop as an officer. Show that you had that potential to serve at a higher level and function at a higher level and then you apply for pilot slot or navigator slaughter intelligence officer. Whatever might be but you've been racked and stacked against your peers. There's a number one. There's a number two. There's a number ten and they all comes down to the needs of the air force so if we need ten pilots great news for that group of ten people but if there's only need to pilots than the top two people get that that's a very broad brush gail but in the end it's a really long process typically in order to get to that point and it's a big investment to write without being guaranteed that you're actually. GonNa get that slot you're putting in years and years of work before you ever know that you're GonNa get pilot

S. squeezed into my senior chief uniform and answer these events that we're watching right now I'll go over to the academy which is about fifteen minutes away and I'll render the first salute to my cadet that I sponsored charitable Sorbo he's graduating this year he's going to be a pilot what does it mean to sponsor a cadet so you know we have cadets from fifty states come and their parents can always be here and so we volunteer to to sponsor a cadet which means that their first year here they spend a lot of time on the weekend here sleeping in and sleeping from the ridge ridge rigorous events of the week and then by their senior year we see them twice a year and on their graduation so and this is this our our seventh year as was our last good that we're gonna take a little breather after this but we're we were really proud of Jared he's from Greenville Tennessee and he's done a fantastic job wow it must be for you as a as a former military guy just a very emotional moment to do the first salute with the person and you kind of helped and sponsored through all of this is the first salute for that person as an officer it's just amazing it's it's a great honor in this is my sixth year that my last year after a while and it is truly an honor it and it's it's great to be able to walk with them when their parents can't be here and just be that little outlet from the pressures of that school which are a man site I can tell you he has lots of stories of of just the rigor of the military and we had a couple intercollegiate athletes so along with that oh my goodness it's a it's a tough call for them I'm really proud of them some from your position is sponsoring a kid that what's been different for for you during this last month and a half with the virus stuff as far as you know that as far as the Air Force Academy in the sponsoring so it changed a little bit like job printing and I have our medical care at usapa a United States Air Force Academy and so whenever I'm on base I will contact Jared and his fiance Sydney and ask them if they need anything because I'll go to the commissary pick something up for them and it it's it's it's my way of just having a little connection with them and so it it transaction transition to a little bit but I'm looking forward to seeing my I haven't seen them in about two months ago looking towards the end of today well fantastic all right Billy I'll let you go get on with your day so thanks so much for being here and I am and I congratulate yard from all of us here at KOAA news radio well thanks for having me on the show and I think I'm transitioning to Billy really quick I just told you billionaires are now thousands of people know you as Billy yeah we now will he now all right see see ability okay all right that's pretty cool bill I guess yeah he's been sponsoring Air Force current academy cadets for for years and I just love getting on it on to talk about that all right I also want to mention other things actually so starting and bow out I'll call it half an hour from now thirty three minutes from now if you're going to be precise and we probably should because we're talking about military timing here of associated with today's graduation of the error of the Air Force Academy cadets there is going to be a flyover by the United States Air Force Thunderbirds and this is pretty cool so let me just give you a sense of what's going on so that when you hear military jets if you're close to their flight path that you'll know you'll know what's going on and you can look up and look for that the thunder birds flying a few inches or a few feet apart from each other so they're gonna start at twelve fifty PM and I'm just gonna tell you approximately times and towns okay so start time twelve fifty PM you're going to get him to start up near Greenlee they're going to head north west at first over Windsor and then over fort Collins then they turned south come down over fort Collins cross over I. twenty five come back out west toward Loveland and then go pretty much south from Loveland to Longmont they're gonna be between Longmont and boulder just fifteen minutes after the star to one oh five ishe okay one oh five issue will be getting to the boulder area they do a loop over boulder you know and then they and then they come south again Westminster Arvada go out west towards golden at that point you're talking probably one fifteen about golden and then they cut Eastlake would Denver Aurora up near the airport and then come back down south all the way out west through little ten and then back down to centennial and then coming down through is south of four seventy towards Castle Rock area that'll be about one thirty one thirty five around Castle Rock and then almost straight down I twenty five monument around one forty five black forest Colorado springs then down by fountain at one fifty five a fountain and pueblo pueblo and then they returned to Nellis Air Force base from there so the whole thing here in in Colorado is going to be maybe an hour and ten minutes long but anyway starting around twelve fifty ending around two and if you hear from or see him well you'll know what is your hearing and seeing the US Air Force Thunderbirds celebrating today's graduation of the Air Force Academy all right let's some let me switch gears with you for a second if I might I do want to talk a little bit about you know virus related stuff without getting you know getting too heavy about it but you know this stuff is important and one of the things that I've noticed that I'm sure you have to on the country various places yes there have been some protests against governors typically by I'll see people on the political right mostly but not entirely asking those governors or more like demanding that those governors do things to loosen up economic restrictions and stay at home rules and all that in in their states and right now not sure if you're aware of this but right now there's actually one of these scheduled for tomorrow right here in Colorado there's a Facebook page there's a Facebook page called operation gridlock Denver which says that it's being organized by a couple of groups including peace love and hippie juice peace loving hippie juice a person named Victoria Reynolds I don't know who she is but I'm it says Victoria Reynolds twenty twenty so maybe she's running for office or something I don't know I I think she's a libertarian and also the Libertarian Party of el Paso county so they're organizing this thing which is supposed to be around the state capitol tomorrow at one PM and the weather is supposed to be all right and you look at all these other states is that it had this in Michigan they've had it in Idaho trying to think ahead and whatever they had maybe four five states for Minnesota I think and I'm really kinda sorta torn about it because no one hands I really want this take to open up I want people to go back to work I want to be able to come to my morning show every day at the radio station rather than from home I want to be able to go out to a restaurant even if I have to sit eight feet apart from the next table I don't care about the next table very much I want to be able to go to any store that I want to win be able to buy what I need to buy I want to be able to go out and take a walk and not look at the person who's walking by me without any intent on my participants like not look at the person walking by me wondering if that person is spreading a virus toward me which of course I realized is not a situation that is controlled by whether or not the governor allows businesses to open again but you get my point I just want us to start drifting back to normal and I do think that some point we're gonna have a really hard look at everything that we've done in the state in the disk in this country and ask was it appropriate was it an overreaction and I do think I think we talked about this last Saturday I find it very interesting thought experiment imagine let's just stick with Colorado imagine that the governor loses mode loosens most restrictions were getting things done maybe even schools are open and then there's another little outbreak of the virus somewhere somewhere that's in a fairly populated area and the governor is put in a position where he has to at least consider reimposing stay home orders I don't think the state would tolerate it I really I don't think the people would tolerate it and I do think we'll have some the opportunity to look back on that but we're not looking back yet we're still looking forward right now I am looking forward right now it's just hard for me to say that even though I am a thousand percent.

Robert Kolker Discusses 'Hidden Valley Road'

"Us about the Galvin family. Let's start with the parents. Don and Mimi there. The subject of this book Don really lived through the greatest moments of the twentieth century. He was a World War Two veteran and the two of them put down roots in Colorado after the war and raised a family and had twelve children. The twelve children's span the baby boom the. I was born in nineteen forty five and the last in nineteen sixty five and they were known in Colorado Springs. Colorado is sort of a model family. Everybody knew the Galvin's with their twelve children and the oldest was a football star and dated the general's daughter at the Air Force Academy and all of the boys were Jock simplisafe on every hockey game. They played they were sort of legends at the time but nobody really knew that privately. The family was suffering that that in the end six of the twelve children were diagnosed schizophrenia. And it was at a time in America where there was a lot of shame and stigma around mental illness. Even more than there is now where the parents were often blamed and so it was a secret for as long as they keep it a secret and that just lead to more damage and the youngest children in the family really suffered the most from living in that house full of secrets before we get into their stories. It's interesting that you say everyone knew the Galvin's in Colorado Springs. My cousin actually grew up in an air force family in Colorado Springs and had never heard of them and so it might be that. She's she's younger. She's in her forties now. But I'm curious how you came across this family and their story because you're not from Colorado Springs. Yeah their heyday was in the early years of the academy. Right after the academy opened in the mid fifties that was when the family really started to rise up so they were best known in the late fifties. I know about them because the youngest two children the only girls were friends of a friend of mine. And for years. These two sisters Margaret and Lindsey had been talking with one another about the best way to let the world know about their family but they realized they couldn't do it alone. There was a lot about their family. They didn't even know. I mean a lot of these brothers were fifteen or twenty years older than they were and then of course a lot of the medical records. They didn't have access to and a lot of the stories that their parents told they couldn't necessarily verify on their own. A lot of legends going around and in fact they some of the worst things that happened to the family had been kept from them kept secret from them because they were too young when it happened and so finally they decided to turn to an independent journalists to to cover the family independently to take the story wherever it would lead and they were confident in doing this because they felt that the there was scientific value medical value in focusing on this family and they knew that researchers had been talking to them for decades and they wanted to know what those researchers learned as. Well okay all families. Don't get along perfectly. And I imagine a family with twelve children. Probably even more so where they unanimous in their willingness to collaborate with you to answer your questions be interviewed well aside from being completely gobsmacked by the story and and really could not believe all. This happened to one family. I was pretty convinced in the beginning that there couldn't be a book about this because of medical privacy laws that all all it would take was one sibling standing up and saying what you WANNA book about this family no way and then suddenly it would get very impossible so I worked very Slowly and really took it very easy and over several months I would get on the phone. Maybe once a week with different family members saying so you know your sisters are interested in having a book about your family. How does that make you feel and sort of got took the temperature of the entire family and to my amazement everyone was interested in. Everyone was ready including Mimi. The family matriarch who had been so determined to keep everything secret for so long. She was in her nineties. Ready to talk about it too. She died in two thousand seventeen after you interviewed her. And I want to talk about that interview a little bit because as you mentioned earlier at that time schizophrenia was often blamed on mothers. Yes and and so. She was thrilled to be talking about it from a genetic perspective. You know. We're in the Arab genetics. Now so it it made her feel good to be able to say yes. Well now. We know that it couldn't have been bad parenting that it was genetics and so two that part she was happy but she was really part of her survival instinct and part of what made her so functional for so long was that she could really move past a lot of the unpleasantness in her life. So getting here to talk about unpleasant subjects was not easy and of course. I didn't WanNa get a ninety one or ninety two year old to to do anything. I didn't want to traumatize someone who was clearly in such frail health. So what proceeded was me sitting there at the kitchen table with her and her two daughters were at the table too and every time she would try to deflects the conversation. One of her daughter's would go. Oh Mom and and try to kind of cajole her gently back to talk about the unpleasant stuff and eventually she she was able to really open up about some very difficult things and I was really grateful to get that kind of clarity from her. Twelve children is difficult enough. I mean twelve children. Ten of them were boys even if they did not suffer from mental illness even during the baby boom. That's a lot of kids. Why did they have twelve children? I spent a lot of time sort of looking into that question for dom father. He was Catholic and he was looking for a distinguished life and he wanted to to stand out in some way and it made him feel good to be a pattern familias and so it pleased him to have so many children. And then Mimi who was like a lot of women in her generation a little frustrated that she couldn't intellectually really achieve dreams. She really gave up her college education and gave up and he sort of independent life to be a mother and she gave up a life of culture and sophistication moving out to the boonies which is Colorado was in the fifties to her as a sophisticated New Yorker and so she liked the being having a certain amount of notoriety and fame and accomplishment of having such a large family but more than that I think she was binging on family in a way because of a lot of the losses she had had in her life. She had lost her father when she was younger and a scandal he sort of became divorced from the family and she never really had a relationship with him. She now was in a marriage where the husband was increasingly absent. He was a career military guy who really created a life of the mind and was not an active parent like a lot of fathers in that time period and so really having so many children gave her a lot of company and I came to appreciate that aspect of it. So six of these kids. Six of the were ultimately diagnosed with schizophrenia. Which as I understand it typically emerges in adolescence or young adulthood it. Correct me if I'm wrong but we're there earlier signed. How did they first find out about the first child to be diagnosed? They suspect something was wrong. Well five of the six of them really followed that pattern. They were all twenty twenty one twenty two in late adolescence. When they had their first really visible psychotic breaks. There was one peter who was earlier he was fourteen he. There was real trauma right before that happened. He watched his father suffers stroke but the they were warning signs for for some of them for Donald. The oldest son he really was a very troubled teenager despite being out early so successful and so popular and he would do things like smashed dishes while washing the dishes out of rage or be overly almost gratuitously abusive to his younger brothers when he was left to take care of them. There are certain ways that he should have demonstrated that he wasn't connecting with the world in a traditional way in that it's almost like there is a barrier between him and others and that was very visible even in his teenage years. But it only devolved into psychosis. Once he was in college he would do things like run into a bonfire during a PEP rally or be cruel to animals. Th they were difficult moments that suddenly were wakeup calls to him. That something was really wrong and he started going to see therapists and his parents started shopping for a medical opinion. That could keep him in college and keep the family away from scandal.

Two senior cadets, among 1,000 seniors isolated at the Air Force Academy, died by suicide within days

"After two cadets suicides in less than a week their force academy leaders are making big changes in social distancing policies and some complained had made the school prison prison like that is four connect seniors to remain on campus alone in their rooms so most Carlene Johnson early in March the Air Force Academy in Colorado springs sent freshman sophomore junior cadets home the seniors due to graduate in may we're told they would stay in single dorm rooms food brought to them instead of the dining hall and no gathering with classmates anywhere on base that group of humans what you have created over four years a few calories supportable park would definitely be something it's tough to say Tom Roeder is the senior military editor for the Gazette in Colorado springs discover the economy for seventeen years and tells me he's never seen them rocked by a tragedy like last week when two senior cadets took their own lives and that brought top Pentagon brass to the base Monday where the seniors were urged to reach out for help and told they can now venture off campus to get food and can gather with classmates in small groups still keeping that six foot distance the hope is not forcing that isolation will prevent the cadets from feeling

"Man's. Thank you for joining us today for our listeners. Thank you great to be back. It is great to have you back and for our listeners. Who Haven't heard you on our previous podcast. Can you please give them a quick introduction on Yourself Asher So my name is harmon? I'm one of the CO founders of their Hash craft alongside Dr Leeman Baird We've been working together. Lehman I for twenty six years always in deep tack. The we've done reinforcement learning or machine learning research for the Air Force. We talked computer. Science at the Air Force Academy cybersecurity managed massive software program for the Missile Defense Agency and then decided we wanted to become entrepreneurs and this is our third startup we to prior startups in the space of identity and access management and sold one to Fortune. Five hundred the other private equity and Leman wanted to solve a really hard math problems specifically how you can achieve the limits in terms of security in a consensus algorithm distributed consensus algorithm simultaneous to maximizing performance. How you can do both at the same time. And after of hard work he invented the Hash. Graph which is consensus algorithm like blockchain is a consensus algorithm. Has Graph is an alternative approach that has fantastic properties again both in terms of security and performance and we decided to take that tha market and here. We are years later now with their hash graph. Brilliant end in that one answer. You've athlete answered the next two questions. All I can one so fishing deeper interested. Yeah Yeah I mean I think it will be useful is because one of our typical questions is please define what is blockchain and Like we did in the last podcast if you perhaps could have another go at it and at the same time point out the differences between Blockchain and a hash graph. Why Hash crowd is so much more efficient than Blockchain system sure well blockchain as a term refers to two things it refers to a data structure. Which is a chain of blocks of transactions? And it's very serious just like it sounds in the way it's created and it also the the term also refers to a consensus algorithm that enables a community of of participants each of which that holds a local copy of that chain of blocks to come to agreement or consensus on which block to put next on the top of that chain in their by everyone keeps a consistent chain of blocks and often. It's proof of work. You know the use of a really hard cryptographic puzzle into novel ways that makes it possible for the community to to come to consensus on on which blocks you go on top of of the chain. But it's designed to be slow and it. The use of proof of work causes it to be slow and The the fact that there is a single chain that everyone uses also limiting in terms of its architecture hash graph similarly is a term that refers to both a data structure in this case. It's a graph in the mathematical sense. It's a graph that is whose nodes are or verticals are linked together with Hashes gripped graphically in. So it's a data structure in there's also consensus algorithm. That makes it possible for those that have a copy of the Hash graph to calculate how each other how the other nodes in the network would vote on the order of transactions and so they come to to agreement on the order of transactions that get captured in this in this graph because it's a graph rather than a chain all of the transactions. They're flowing into the network can be processed simultaneously. There is no need for proof of work. This process that slows down blockchain to give the community time to come to agreement. There's no need for any of that and so we've basically eliminated the too constraining factors. Proof of work is no is not there. And it's a graph. Instead of a chain and the result of that is fantastic performance in it's got some great theoretical properties specifically it does achieve the limit in terms of security at something called a synchronous. Byzantine fault tolerance. It's the best one can do and in its novel in those ways Brilliant thank you very much for that and we had actually gymnasts or very recently. Come on our show. He's the CEO of core and he was telling us about how he build his colonel virus tracker using Darah Hash craft for exactly the same properties. You just described now. We've had you on this show for about ten ten eleven months ago. What industries and geographies are we seeing the most adoption of our has graph? Well I wouldn't say that there's geography necessarily. That is adopting. Maybe more than than another and the industry's when thinking about the industries. It's it's also it's more like this. It's not really that there is necessarily one industry. That is adopting faster than another but the way I would sort of segment the market or break it down in terms of what is adopting versus. Not Is that. There are a lot of enterprise use cases that are being presented in that. We're you know we're working on with partners and council members that are kind of boring in nature in some ways. What I find interesting is that while most of the market is looking for a really sexy killer. Commercial consumer focused use case. You know everybody's looking for that killer APP. That is primarily focused on building a big consumer focused use case. Our experience is just the opposite. It's for example as a category just audit based applications where you WANNA take some information in get a consensus time stamp on it and use that in various ways maybe their regulatory related. Maybe you need to be able to to just store information improve that it. It was what you claim. It was on a on a given date. There's just a whole broad range of business to business process optimization focused use cases that I think are the ones that are going to end up being the ones that take the whole market Mainstream or result in its mass adoption. And so that's the distinction that I'm seeing. It's it's not a one particular industry or one geography is more focused on B. Two B. process optimization versus consumer focused applications

3 Aviator Guests Who Flew The F117

"Today we have not one two three we Aviators who flew the F.. One seventeen so with us today. We have colonel at Whitley. We have colonel. Ralph Goetchel and colonel. Ganja Gentlemen thank all of you for being here. We also have their wives with us here. They were able to join us so Just want to thank the six of you for making the trip up to to Oshkosh Wisconsin. Shearson time on this pleasure absolutely so and also they'll be joining us tonight for. EA Speaker series which For those are you listening. It's too late for you but make sure you missed a good one guy you know especially that one part but do check our local to the oshkosh area. Ever want to make a trip sometime. When it's not air venture be sure to check our social media on our website and our online newsletter for for future dates for this for the series so with that of course I guess I'll I'll kick it over to you to kind of ask what we usually ask for the introductory questions for our I guess one of my favorite questions ask because everybody has a story What I made you WanNa fly well for me? As a child growing up I was the child of a World War Two veteran. My Dad worked for a company in which there was is a retired Military Aviator who was the president and CEO of textile the organization being from the South and he was a big collector of military aircraft. And he he shared this collection with the people who work for his organization and so we as kids. We just climb all over a variety of military aircraft and been a little bit older than these other guys I Remember Korea Had Our tendency to visit the local airport just watching it but what the moment that really struck me was when I had my first Ryder t thirty. The three in the backseat. My time is that My choices were go through. ROTC in college or not go to college and be a grunt in the United States are going to be at Phnom and frankly when I went to field training between my sophomore junior year and had that first orientated applied on ever get get visit. Myrtle Beach Airforce Base took off on their forget we broke ground on a cloudy sky and that contrast to the ocean and the white sand. And I said Gosh. Gosh this is what I WANNA do. That was that moment that really struck out for me and I had a great again in front seat and that was that was a magic moment for me. That's awesome How about you Colonel Jill? We're like to point to say that my father who was in the military inspired mutation Taeb restrained to be AAA battery commander so that didn't feel bad but my mother was a navy wave during World War Two and it was a linked trainer operator and she brought with her the navy how to fly manuals and all the things that I just devoured in junior high and high school. I lived on a ranch in central Florida that was in the running line for the navy. Pine Castle air to ground range or GonNa rage and so I could be down there shoveling horse apples or whatever it is that at a ranch boy does it'd be threes and fours and four eight. Five eight vigilantes roaring overhead on looking up and Goya looks like a lot more fun than down here and I did a little investigation allegation and found out that the navy guys running aircraft carrier. And there's no women on carrier knows no beer on the carrier and that that launched launched me on a on a career near fourth. Although my dad wasn't an aviator was on the Coast Guard World War Two timeframe when I was young very young he took me to an EA gathering back when it was in Rockford. And I got my first flight in a gypsy. Moth Open Air. I don't remember eight or nine years old in it's kind of set a spark. My father was always aviation suzy's and then as I was getting into high school I just thought the flight fighters be like the greatest job in the world early in high school. Had I had a cousin that went to the Air Force Academy and I got to thinking I was also the oldest of seven children in the finances of going to college made made a huge difference if the government was sending me to college and I got a chance to be a pilot. Boy that'd be cool owes able to get into the Air Force Academy train their want to go to pilot training and it was just kind of always been my goal to head in that direction. I didn't necessarily have specific specific path but worked out and there. We have how that's awesome. That's really cool. You have an EA if you're early flight and that's pretty wild. It's grown a bit Rockford. We noticed it so we just heard your first experience in an airplane What about the what? What did you was the first plane? Overflowing well following pilot training. No now you just mean like as a kid but as I said in the t thirty three that's an awesome. I fly has an awesome and of course it there in that timeframe There was a program in. ROTC for juniors and sophomores to Get their pilot. License called the flight instruction program and I went through that and of course into the air force and on the pilot training but my first airplane eh operation and was the F. One hundred which kind of an interesting about that as a kid growing up I mentioned that my first flight and the t thirty three was There'll beach airforce. Base happened to be two three fifty four th wing air flying f one hundred's so as a kid. I got a lot of Hans and I never thought that I'd be one of those guys flying the F. One hundred it's an amazing airplane. Yes it is about you. My first light was in a was in a Tri Pacer and my I had a I had a friend in elementary school was interested in aviation as well and my brother and we saved our money and we parents take us out your fort and got a little introductory flight And the next one after that was on my way to the Air Force Academy Outta me. My Kademi lays officer now. This central Florida had a steer men and he put me up in the German to go flying and that open cockpit Pitt. Experience was quite a thrill that is pretty cool at the step up from a Tri Pacer. Quite a bit so we'll talk a little bit about how you guys transitioned into the F. One seventeen program And currently I guess we should start with you since you you were there for pretty early on to keep household about that yes and the late nineteen eighties. I received my backup of it in late late. Nineteen Eighty I was just finishing the eight and fighter weapons school and being reassigned their analysis to be the assistant operations officer in that unit. Something I'd really want to do for some time really looking forward to it but no sooner had I arrived in the squadron and I got a phone phone call from the gentleman I had never met before. who asked me if he could meet me a specific building a specific perfect room at a specific time in several weeks ahead? This guy's name was Bernard Bob Jackson Quite a character in his own right in On the predetermined date and time I arrived air knocks on the door. Door opens about an inch. And I hear this voice is. Are you whittling. I said Yes sir they let me see your ID card slip it through the door. Who knows what's going on the other side he's probably chuckling or whatever but invites me in and we have about three five minute interview that Everything he offered was great but not assured I took him up on his offer. And that's how I joined the unit and made a commitment At that time and two or three months later one of the first in whoops called the initial padres to show up. We didn't have a permanent place to stay. We had a couple of Single wide trailer on on the flight. Line at Nellis Air Force Base and I spent about four and a half five years With the unit I watched it go from obtaining are I eighty seven to become an seven unit the with the as our cover story story Doing Avionics testing and of course I was For whatever reason nothing unique about me because because there were several very talented and capable people in part of that initial Kadre but Colonel Jackson for whatever reason he did elected to Have may be the first operational pilot now. I've had two theories about that. The first is I was expendable. Yeah and so. If it didn't work out nothing was lost but and as it turned out That that was a very unique experience and then of course Being the first operational pilot help check out the next guy and so on and so forth and eventually we received airplanes wanted to time and we checked out people want at the time and by while the intent was by nineteen eighty two to have limited operational operational capability. We simply just didn't the airplanes fast enough because some challenges that they had faced in that process and well how to build it exactly and each airplane was very unique in his own right. What those first few coming up? Because there's a lessons learned very quickly. Adjustments were being made in the Production and June of eighty five rolled around I had basically Evolved into being the Training Squadron Commander and I left the unit about four or five assignments later in August of nineteen ninety. I showed back up on the doorstep So we we had come all the way back to band at one fifty and being the first operational pilot. That's the how we came about my bandit number

How Former Thunderbird Pilot Col. Chris Stricklin Developed an Interest in Flying

"Today. We have Colonel Chris Strickland with us Karl thank you for coming up and being with us. We really appreciate she hit. Thanks Chris. It's always a great time to be here at a and I appreciate spending time with you. Absolutely we'll tonight. We're recording this that we're reporting on a Friday here tonight. Something very special is happening and you're actually launching your book with us here tonight. I am and it's an honor to do that. With such a passionate crowd about aviation to launch a book about an incident that happened to me a while back and how my family dealt with it and what it means to us today well. It's really an honor for us to to be here with you and to do that. We'll get a little bit into the book and Events Around the book but you know I one of our favorite questions. We like to ask people as just. Where did it all start? How did you I I didn't flying? That's always the question that people in Aviation WanNa know is how did you get your inspiration to take to the skies and what we do every single day from me. Small Town Alabama Emma boy my dad worked in a quarry no military in my family and I decided to fly fifteenth and I went to my counselor and said Hey hey I want to go to the Air Force Academy I WANNA fly fifteens and and she looked at me and I would love to say she was supportive but she goes. What's the Air Force Academy and so from their seventeen year old me I got my car went and found a first term senator and said Hey sir I want to go to the Air Force Academy? We sponsor me up there and I had a saying hanging you know my wall my whole life and it was cut out of a magazine it was laminated. I looked at it every morning every night and it simply said like begins at Mach two and I always had it but I didn't you know where it came from. So as I started speaking writing a book I researched it and came from a magazine Article Net back in nineteen eighty six George Plumpton wrote in popular mechanics magazine and he had the opportunity to fly in an F. Eighteen and he did about a four page spread about how it was demanding on the pilot how what it was really like to be a fighter pilot but most most importantly at the end of the article he compared the F. Eighteen to a corvette and to a young child in Alabama. The corvette was something I really loved and I said that is compared to a corvette. That's what I WANNA do with my life. That's funny. It's funny that came from an Plumpton article man. That guy got to do everything I wonder how it compared to quarterbacking the lions yeah it's amazing to does. He understand how many people he inspired what he wrote about and it was it was a true non fighter pilot article about what it was like to be a fighter pilot and the demands that are on our body and what we go through in in it just made me go. I want that so from there you did you you did attend the the Air Force Academy I did. I went to the Air Force Academy about three weeks after graduation with fifteen hundred closest friends for four years of what I like to call all basic training the whole four years and wh what kind of experience was free kind of coming out of a small town in Colorado Springs was it. Was It kinda familiar to you you or was it a kind of a brief from drinking from a fire hose. It was drinking from a fire hose the whole time and I will tell you it is a lot of competition titian. Get in the Air Force Academy as you can imagine and when you take fifteen hundred young people that are coming as the top of their class and lock them in in one building on one campus. Guess what happens when fifteen hundred number ones get together. Fourteen hundred ninety nine of them aren't number one anymore so it was demanding both physically and mentally but there was also the challenge of being in college and such a High Level College at such a level of competition and it was a great I mean I say the freshman year there from he is one of the hardest years that I ever went through my childhood because there were so much adaptation to the new way of life and and getting through the Air Force Academy and the competition to be a pilot pilot coming out of there it was just it was an amazing experience that I wouldn't trade for anything in the world but even now after so many years I will admit that I love the Academy Kademi but I hated every day I was there if you know what I mean yeah that that makes a lot of sense the diesel have I know I still have dreams of being in a final exam Zama last sat for you know twenty years ago. Is that the same thing for you so that dream for me. If you remember a final final week we put all our finals in one week and we ate on base because it's a military and so we had a midnight meal that we lovingly called Scooby snacks. If you remember Scooby Doo Scooby always had scooby snacks so at midnight we would go out to get our scooby snacks and and about every night you would hear somebody goes screaming across the patio out there because they had hit that breaking point and somebody he's not getting his scooby snack. Ah Yeah so what was your progression of aircraft flew through training. How did that go so graduation? From the Air Force Academy I I went to pilot training and back then we went to the thirty seven so the tweet now they fly the t six so you do that for about six months I went to Euro NATO joint jet Pilot Training Senate Sheppard Air Force Base which is where we trained fighter pilots so after six months of t thirty seven training you get rank ordered and then you go into the thirty eight where you learned to fly a high speed jet you go supersonic for the first time learn to fly formation those type things and then coming out of the t thirty eight you get rank ordered and we have assignment midnight so you literally walk into a room with all of your instructors and your peers know spouses no friends though anybody they locked the door they walk up on stage and at the time they took a cheat off of a board that had you rank order from first to last and it was right there and start with number one you get up and walk to the board and they have magnets every airplane plane that was available to be picked and you walked up and pick the airplane you wanted. Put it by your name and you can imagine as you went down. The list got smaller and smaller so for me. I I got my first choice. The F fifteen went out of their to introduction to fighter fundamentals which is where we take the t thirty eight put a bomb on a gun side on it and we fight against the other to start getting those basic fighter type skills in and then I went off to the fifteen at Tyndall to the schoolhouse to get qualified in the fifteen then once once you get to your combat unit which was me was the thirty third fighter wing at Eglin Air Force Base. It takes about three months to finish and get certified before you're a combat ready pilot ready to deploy we overseas why so the F fifteen I mean that's a great airplane undefeated champion as we always say What was your first impression? When you get your dream you signed the fifteen? He got on the ramp at some point and you finally see the airplane. You'RE GONNA fly for the first time. What's that feeling like so if we could back it up a little bit because this happened at the Air Force Academy one of the benefits go in the Air Force Academy is we have an assignment one summer for three weeks to go out and shadow a unit and see the real air force? We call it is like for me happened to go to Tyndall Air Force Base so as a senior at the Air Force Academy I was able to get in an F. Fifteen and go fly for the first time before I graduated before I had the assignment before I'd been through pilot training and you can imagine the childhood sparkling is when I walk out and see that beast I it's the size of a tennis court for those that don't know it's about thirteen feet off the ground when you climb up and I'm just sitting there and admiration of this thing and we take off and when we airborne a home i Gosh I hate it. It is brutal it hurts and I landed exhausted. After a forty minute flight a pulling nine Jeez I mean and they didn't take it easy on me. They full up at a normal mission with me and I remember we went back into into the debrief room which has a lot of computers so it's kind of cool and about two minutes. It's in the debrief. I was not enough out of pure exhaustion. I was so tired and my instructor goes a just an incentive right for you. You can go and go if you want to and I left there going. Oh my Gosh Josh is my life's dream and it hurt. My whole body hurts. It's bigger than any workout I ever had and there was that moment of do I really want to do this and that's when I said Yep. This is what I WANNA do so that was my first flight before I went to pilot training.

"See the apostles, creed is not simply stating accurate things about God. The apostles creed is not simply the repetition of an ancient church ritual. It's that, but more because the apostles creed is an expression of the deepest admiration for the name of Jesus and everything that he stands for. It's kind of like how I am still drawn to the name of my old cadet commander from the air force academy. Admirations of a good name tends to bring out the best in you. When I was a senior at the air force academy. I found myself in the position of squadron commander, I was in charge. And when the Dooley's of my squadron descended into the depths of the obstacle course. I took off my blue beret. And I put on my old, duly hat and I stood in formation with them and I suffered alongside them as one of them. What would possess me to do such a thing it was the identification the reputation and the admiration of a name? Twenty two years later, that name still inspires me. Whose name inspires you. If you're anything like me, just probably lots of names that come to mind. And I pray and hope that your name is on someone's list above all I pray that there's only one name at the top of the list, the name that is destined to be at the top of every list. Because you and I in every human being that has ever been will one day confess. The name of Jesus. The only question is would be a cry if he turn loss. Or a confession of eternal glory. So here's the brand promise. If you confess with your mouth, that Jesus is Lord, and you trust in your heart that God raised him from the dead. You will be saved. Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will never be put to shame. That's our promise. Take up that confession. Take it up right now. Why? Because Jesus emptied himself for you. Jesus became obedient unto death. Even death on a cross for you. See this is what gets me about the name of Jesus. It's not just that he is the almighty, God in the flesh. It's not just that he is resurrected from the dead and in charge of the final judgement. What gets me is his humility his servant heart his love. Our king became a slave. He became a duly. He stood under the judgment for us. He went through the course alongside us so that we don't have to go through it alone. And even today, his followers all over the world continue to confess the words of the apostles, creed. It is a ritual. It is a symbol of the Christian faith, but that's not all it is. It is an expression of worship of admiration admiration naturally leads to imitation. And that's why the apostle Paul opens, the second chapter of his letter to the Philippians with these words words, which I share with you. Now in closing, therefore. If there is any encouragement in being United with Christ, if there's any comfort from his love, if there is any fellowship in the spirit, if there is any compassion, and mercy than make, my joy complete by being like minded having the same love being one in spirit. And of one mind, don't do anything out of selfish ambition or vanity. But in humility regard, others is more important than yourselves. Looking not to your own concerns. But each of you to the concerns of others have this mindset among you that was in Christ. Jesus who being in the form of God, did not consider equality with God something to be used for his own advantage, but he emptied himself taking the form of slave a duly. Being made in human likeness, and found in appearance as a man he humbled himself and became obedient onto death. Even death on a cross. Therefore, God, highly exalted him and gave him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus. Every knee should bow in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God. The father, this is your confession pray with me. Lord jesus..

"She had an interest in aviation and aspires to be a pilot for the United States Air Force. My dad is an avid pilot. He has every rating through his ATP, although he's a physician by profession. Yeah. Dr Steph, we are blessed to have access to several aircraft. A CF is AA EMMY etcetera because of this. My question arises from the fact that she has decided to drop out of high school prior to her placement with us. She is very motivated, and we are working to help her earn her GED, which is a general education degree. I think is what that stands for. Education does after okay. Anyway, that's what I think it is. But it might be something else. But anyway, GD in other words quick. Yeah. Quivalent of getting a high school degree, but without actually graduated from high school after she completes this does. She stand much of a chance of being accepted into the air force academy. She should should she pursue a bachelor's degree from another college and try to get a commission later or should she focus on pilot training now and then pursue her air force dreams. I understand if this doesn't make on the show, but I would still appreciate any advice you in the crew half you made it to the show. Brian May ATC always give you direct to your destination. Again, that's Brian a foster parent in Pennsylvania. Education development o. So the deed is not Stanford degree general education development, education development test. Okay. So I wrote down did a little research here. And the my first reaction was I don't think it's going to be very easy for her at all. She doesn't have a high school degree. And from what I could tell that is true. And even for those of us who went through high school getting into any of our military academies here in the US is a difficult thing. And they saw this by rote might be difficult to get into the US air force academy with a GED the military academies and colleges and universities will assess potential candidates based on their GPA involvement in extracurricular, activity, involvement, and other factors..

I my tasks and accounting at the university of Georgia went on to get my masters winner. Gama CBA went through twenty nine years of being in public private and governmental accounting, well, how tough was it though. So you were able to focus to get the degrees. And then to go into the profession, but how tough was it to battle that barely serious disorder. That is kind of off the charge some days in my right? Some days, you're totally fine. And other days, you just are not the same person. That's correct. There's no question. People like listen Churchill ABRAHAM LINCOLN had bipolar disorder. I've been cured of bipolar disorder from the negative part, which is depression. And I kept the positive part, which is the big thanking, energy and creativity. And so being cured. How to take us through that journey. How were you cured? Well, I was cured by combination of a long term treatment from nineteen eighty thousand three and then action. In nineteen ninety eight is when the operation operation, by the way is not a surgical procedure. It's a secret government agency comprised of the government and private entities. And they use transactional analysis on made to cure me. Thousands and thousands and thousands of images to do a lot myself esteem that some biggest thing colleges depression is lack of self esteem and what I call depression. Internalized stigma is what I call it. The operation. You say the operation is a powerful network, and the how did you get involved with that? How did you get picked for that? How did that happen? Well, I think there's several things that they pick. They trained government leaders. They look for people who are suffering from mental illness or to treat or cure them. They studied people who. Bill. Artificial intelligence research. Let me read you one son from Worrell owner, which I'm in the process of leaving Henry Kissinger pays three six. The. Shen and you'd be. Sensors tracking and analyzing individuals recording and transmitting there every experience in some cases now from birth and at the forefront of competing anticipating their thoughts opens up repressive as well as liberating possibilities, and that sort of thing spotters me since nineteen ninety eight. Wow. And obviously what a change. What would you tell people who are are suffering through the same thing? One thing that our tell people is to try to develop a resilient and at the same time, we can to themselves and for family and friends to be the what I call in Ken. This is basically mostly hereditary. And it's not something is not a year, a bad character, college, you have bipolar disorder. So. The chemistry of your brain. Boy, isn't that the truth. And I think there's so much confusion over the chemistry of the brain for. So so many people. And. Thing is we know so much more. I came down with it in one thousand nine hundred sixty three. Yeah. Yeah. And you're right. It's such a difference from nineteen sixty three to what we see now today. And I love the way you said be kind specially relatives because I had this discussion actually with the wife of a famous doctor who had two children and one was wildly successful. The other one was battling all kinds of demons with five bipolar disorder. And they didn't realize it, and they would constantly tell them. Why can't you get your act together? Why can't you do this? And they beat him up so much that eventually ended up committing suicide. They didn't realize what he was going through. And they didn't they they thought they were giving him tough love, and he just didn't have a direction, but it turned out that wasn't what it wasn't all. We'll see this situation is do you realize that there are more suicides in two thousand thirteen? They were forty one thousand one hundred and forty nine suicides and automobile this year before. Four thirty thousand eight hundred and the number of people killed by psychotic. What i've. Red is around three hundred fifty. That's what's reported in the paper. And that in my opinion is what keeps this stigma live in the stigma forces, internalized stigma, and that longs increases in causes depression. Yeah. Do you? My life and death life and death. I agree with you. Do you think that the drugs that we have are are they helping or are they working on some people? Definitely I take drugs. That sounds good. Gotcha take medications, and and and I have a superb psycho, farmers catchers. And he. He. Does a wonderful job. Prescribing any he doesn't try to tweak them all the time.
