"I am first of all as a parent, I am so sorry that you were estranged from your 29 year old daughter. That's got to hurt on so many levels. Unfortunately, your daughter has, it wouldn't help if you went to a lawyer because your daughter has no legal obligation on the parent plus loan. It's why I'm so frightened of parent plus loans because as my late father used to say, one parent can take care of ten children ten children can't take care of one parent. And so a kid is allowed as an adult to have complete amnesia and lack of gratitude for what you may have done hurting your own financial self in your own financial future by having signed for parent plus loans that also have usually unfavorable interest rates. You do not have a claim against her legally. And I don't know the history, it seems like it's long and sad of the estrangement. If at all possible, if you could send her a handwritten note without bitterness, which I know is very hardness situation like this, and take your time to write it so that it's just, I hope, you know, I hope you're doing well. I'm really sorry for the distance between us, I want to make you aware that I'm suffering a real financial burden from your college loans. And I'm really glad that you've got a great job now. And you ask her and I know this is, this is hard to say because of whatever history has happened. You ask her if she can help out with these loans. Because remember, you have no legal standing, she has no legal obligation. And so you have to appeal to her a mother to a child when human to another.

The January 6th Committee Attempts to Prove the Impossible
"The January 6th committee is in a sense trying to prove what is impossible to prove. Now they claim that they've gathered enough evidence to support a Justice Department indictment against Trump. Now, they don't have the power by the way on their own to indict Trump. They're just a committee. They make a report. What do they do? Turn the report over to the Justice Department. Now admittedly, Merrick Garland would like nothing more than to do a strike against Trump. But I think even he realizes, first of all, he's going into uncharted territory. The idea of indicting a president from the other party is another remarkable thing to do. And in some ways, would I think push us not to, but perhaps towards civil strife, maybe even civil conflict. It's a very, very precarious action. I think the January 6th committee is blind to that. And so many leftists on social media. They're like, you know, here's, for example, Robert Reich today. Those who argue that Trump should not be criminally liable because no president American history has been criminally liable overlooked the fact that no president in history has staged an attempted coup to change the outcome of an election. Oh really? Ever heard of the Russia collusion hoax? Wasn't that staged by Obama and the Hillary campaign to change the outcome of the 2016 presidential election? I mean, the amnesia, I don't know if it's just genuine amnesia or just willful blindness, but this is, this is Robert Reich. Apparently with a straight face, never before, has a president or a presidential candidate ever. Yes, that actually happened in the last residential

How to Get Your Ex to Think About You 24/7
"How to get your x to think about shoot twenty four seven I know you're definitely thinking about them. Twenty four seven. Even when you're sleeping you're thinking about them. You're dreaming about them and you want him to do the same thing. But a lot of people. I find are actually afraid that their xi's gonna forget them which i find laughable. I'm not laughing at you. I'm laughing at the thought. it's like. What because someone doesn't break up with you and then all of a sudden have amnesia awesome. Have a lobotomy and no longer remembers that you even exist. I mean come on so they are thinking about you about. We want them to really think about you. We want him to think about you. Twenty four seven. So you're thinking about them and wondering if they're thinking about you because they're not reaching out to you to check up on you or whatever and that's part of the reason why they are also thinking about you because you're not reaching out right at least you should be if you're listening to my channel so that is the first way to get your extra think about you and that is. I'm sure you know what it is. No contact no contact. Because they're going to be expecting you to reach out especially if you were begging and pleading in the beginning and then all of a sudden you stopped. They're going to be wondering why they're not hearing from you even if they don't want you back they're just still wondering it's a hit to their ego. They're thinking about you and wondering why you're not reaching out and as i've said many times before that question mark that wondering becomes a hook it turns upside down and becomes hook and they are wondering what you are up to and why you stopped begging and pleading because it is kind of ego boost when someone begs and pleads for you even if you don't want them and they're wondering why you all of a sudden it disappeared into thin air so no contact made many videos on that. It's the most powerful way to get your x to be thinking about you constantly.

"The brain might be working yes. Most most movies are about Amnesia which is the inability to form long term memories. Actually so you can't remember. We did yesterday because it didn't make it into long term memory. So if you're having a conversation and everything staying in short term memory staying at working memory Then you're perfectly normal but as soon as you get distracted right if there's allow bang outside the window and you look over there you would completely forget what you were talking about a new turn back and and not be able to reinstate a conversation from From long term memory. And so yes that is that is thought to be very the hippocampus which is a serve brain region that lives kind of in the center of of the cortex in often referred. Sometimes we purchased. Temporal lobe is well is this brain region that's thought to be as centrally important for formation of new long term memories and so They patients who lose their hippocampus. Can't are these amnesiac patients. Who can't form can't remember what they did yesterday or even at basically since they lost their hippocampus they they don't have any recollection but they have very normal working memories and short term memory which is interesting so yeah i think these two systems seemed to be divided. I mean there there are some interesting I don't. I don't know if diseases quite right there are there are some interesting populations of people who for example have trouble doing visualizations so they can't hold an image in working memory and i think this is just starting to be Really studied And there's some interesting evidence that they they actually do okay on a of working memory tasks even though they can't say like picture like at least for me if i if somebody were telling me picture pink elephant i can kind of draw the pink elephant my head see its trunk and its feed in its ears and all that Some people can't and it turns out that that they you find on these working memory tasks which.

"And put ziprecruiter to work for you all right speaking of elections. Let's end with a game as you hopefully know by now radical republican activists here in california have forced the state to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on election to decide whether gavin newsom should be recalled as governor You can vote in person on september fourteenth or return your ballot anytime before. Then they were mailed out last week. This means we now have the final list of yahoos in googlers vying to replace newsom which means we can play a game called. Do you recall were. I'll read the name and bio a candidate. This is the name of bio that are on the official california voter guide. And you tell me if you think that the name and bio are real or fake okay. I'm gonna lose. This is okay here. We go Person with the most correct guesses wins. How many emotions are the. Let's see you know what they're lettered. So now i can't. I can't think there's like ten of the oslo at any iraq. You say before we start. I've gotten more worried about this. Recall election every week for months. Now i think that i just hope. Listeners are taking this really seriously. Because i think gavin newsom might be in more trouble than people realize or at least the way this election is structured. He could not only lose but we could elect an actual will be crazy. Because if the recall is approved the winner. Just as a plurality right right and so that person in the field of however many candidates could get like ten percent. Yeah daddy come governed absolutely could get forty nine percent of the state saying no. Don't recall him but get recalled and then it could go to the second question in like larryelder could get twenty percent and he is the governor so not the guy got stop here and say no love lost for gavin guy. I think i can't even brutally s. I'm telling you. I think a lot of voters feel that way and i think that's a fair way to feel If you're not motivated. That's okay. But i think you know. Know what the alternative is if you decide to set it up. Yeah and it's and it's not about people and personalities here right it's about. I'm sure that's how hitler feeling is think to yourself. Do i wanna live in a state with the governor who wants to repeal. The minimum wage wants to repeal environmental protections. Who who wants to put choice back on the table. Right it's it's you can have. You can feel it. Wait how you want to feel about. Gavin newsom no problem but if he's recalled that's what we're going to get. Diane feinstein is really old and the governor replacement suggest should something happen marinade on that saying we need all right. Tommy number one The name is angeline.

If you're quick. Short message has two steps as one. Step too many hard to mess. Weird do this. But then i think that's partly why they wanna say vote novotna. Don't ask me about the second question it's like doesn't matter do you. By the way it really if you vote no. It really doesn't matter that. I mean there's gonna be no at this point. There's no organized effort behind an alternative democrat. So bunch of people right in in different things is not going to do it. all right next. One sam Mike rounds and the bio is my pullout.

"I give him a lot of credit for being one of the few people saying that. Easy read like dave betray us interviewed in the new yorker by isaac. Shattner who's usually like really tough on his interview subjects and he's making the same points which is like i needed more time more troops. We lacked resolves. It's like twenty. Years isn't till i think it brings up a larger question that i don't think a lot of people have good answers for which is how do you protect and defend human rights around the world military intervention right and so a lot of these and i think a lot of reporters even the ones like like c. j. who worked closely with afghan translators. Now can people you know. The question is when there are oppressive regimes around the world your choices. either. If you're somewhere like the government like the united states do intervene militarily or do you find other ways to protect human rights and i don't know that there are a lot of easy answers there which is why you face choices about war and there isn't a lot of trust about what we are across the world you know it's it's hard to say you know after something like afghanistan that america can approach other places you know with the clean slate or you know. Be totally fair players. Like is there trust enough to even do anything other than have a military intervention right. Yeah i think The lesson we should all learn humility and that we cannot Force human rights at the point of a gun. You know the the horrible trade off that life under the taliban might be horrifying awful evil for some people but life under military occupation was awful in rural the net is appoint that las vegas not cost just for the us but a co- cost for the people look people talk about. Us casualties afghanistan. You really rarely hear the civilian death. Toll number cited or i think that's why people were offended by president biden's critique of the afghan security forces because something like sixty nine thousand afghan army and police Were killed since the war started. And that's that is a massive number of casualties. Yeah so the time had another ship burger of a piece for the white house. This weekend was entirely predictable because it involves more than forty democrats lawmakers strategist and party officials. Unburdening themselves to reporters about their midterm anxieties over afghanistan and the delta surge which is always a constructive thing to do. That's the way to fix. The problem is to talk to the times about it the time note that these democrats are particularly worried about losing moderate swing. Voters independence a concern. That's not entirely unfounded. According to a pair of nbc and cbs polls released over the weekend that show biden's approval rating dipping to around forty nine fifty percent With nbc showing the biggest declines coming from independence rural residents and white voters. Sa- tommy up bill mcinturff who helps conduct the nbc paul. He's a republican pollster He said quote the best way to understand. This poll is to forget afghanistan. So i'll take that to mean he doesn't think the issue is having a big effect on biden's approval ratings and then it's more the pandemic and the economy. But what do you think of. What do you think of that. First of all. And then what do you make of all the afghanistan polling. You've seen In these last week The best number i saw in these polls was in the. Cbs poll eighty one percent of voters. Said they want the us to help. Afghan interpreters come to the us including seventy six percent of republicans. So that kind of restored. My i was surprised by getting a bit. Yeah i mean. I think we need to watch it. It'll change but the you see those images. Propaganda machine hasn't cranked up. Look you know tucker. Carlson was on tv last week. Saying i we invade than they invade us Right he's talked out and he's talking about african civilians as invaders. You have stephen miller out there rights. I'm the i'm genuinely worried about this I think when it comes to afghanistan more. Broadly what we're learning is what we suspected that people support ending the war. I do think there's cause for concern when you're the president and what people are seeing is chaos stories or assertions that the us was humiliated or defeated. Or that. there's a greater risk from al-qaeda like those are all things that i think are not support or oppose withdrawal but are could be problems for biden. But it's not not as a prize of delta variants really driving. Well also when i first saw the number that he was down to forty nine percent i said oh that was. Trump's highpoint right. That was trump's highpoint right and so these numbers don't exist in a vacuum and by the time we get to mid terms is always going to be tight between both parties. I also think a lot of these moderate independent swing voters. They don't check in really until just before the election and were what still over a year away from that yet. So much could change. So it's we. Let's look at the poll numbers but let's understand where they exist and how they exist in. It's a longtime away from that. You're one of the most salient qualities of swing. Voters is what you point out. No one ever talks about. This is that they're just not as engaged risk and so maybe when they do engage. It's sort of. You're saying they see images of chaos on the television. a are sick of the pandemic they know about that. They don't feel the economy's back yet so you asked them how they feel. They're like not not great. To your point that you were making earlier just sort of about broader views of the united states and where we are right now that it was interesting in the nbc poll. Twenty nine percent say the country's headed in the right direction that's down seven from their last poll. Fifty four percent say they're pessimistic about the country's future only twenty four percent think the economy is excellent or good and more people think the worst of the pandemic is yet to come. I already. I agree on all of all life. I actually thought biden's approval would be lower to. But i mean this is the thing it's like. It's hard to overstate how much everything is unsettled for everybody right now. We've still got millions of americans across the country who are reluctant to go back to their jobs. You know that's still happening in the midst of the delta variant in the midst of afghanistan in the midst of all this other crazy stuff. it's which also means that. Americans by and large are engaging with partisan politics in general period. A lot less than you think because they're trying to get their lives together. Most families right now are trying to see if their kids can go back to school safely right now. You know who's up and who's down in. Dc is bottom of the list. I think to your point about Forty-nine being trump's high watermark dave weigel at the washington post Had a hilarious tweet this morning. We said president's approval rating of fifty percent. You know what that means. Trips to biden country to biden voters why they still support him googling diners in marin county vr. Be at this yoga studio. That's as with activated charcoal. They never stopped staying malarkey like such a funny joke that is true about how trump was was covered moments..

"It'll change but the you see those images. Propaganda machine hasn't cranked up. Look you know tucker. Carlson was on tv last week. Saying i we invade than they invade us Right he's talked out and he's talking about african civilians as invaders. You have stephen miller out there rights. I'm the i'm genuinely worried about this I think when it comes to afghanistan more. Broadly what we're learning is what we suspected that people support ending the war. I do think there's cause for concern when you're the president and what people are seeing is chaos stories or assertions that the us was humiliated or defeated. Or that. there's a greater risk from al-qaeda like those are all things that i think are not support or oppose withdrawal but are could be problems for biden. But it's not not as a prize of delta variants really driving. Well also when i first saw the number that he was down to forty nine percent i said oh that was. Trump's highpoint right. That was trump's highpoint right and so these numbers don't exist in a vacuum and by the time we get to mid terms is always going to be tight between both parties. I also think a lot of these moderate independent swing voters. They don't check in really until just before the election and were what still over a year away from that yet. So much could change. So it's we. Let's look at the poll numbers but let's understand where they exist and how they exist in. It's a long longtime away from that. You're one of the most salient qualities of swing. Voters is what you point out. No one ever talks about. This is that they're just not as engaged and so maybe when they do engage. It's sort of. You're saying they see images of chaos on the television. a are sick of the pandemic they know about that. They don't feel the economy's back yet so he asked them how they feel. They're like not not great. To your point that you were making earlier just sort of about broader views of the united states and where we are right now that it was interesting in the nbc poll. Twenty nine percent say the country's headed in the right direction that's down seven from their last poll. Fifty four percent say they're pessimistic about the country's future only twenty four percent think the economy is excellent or good and more people think the worst of the pandemic is yet to come. I already i agree on all of all. I actually thought biden's approval would be lower to. But i mean this is the thing it's like. It's hard to overstate how much everything is unsettled for everybody right now. We've still got millions of americans across the country who are reluctant to go back to their jobs. You know that's still happening in the midst of the delta variant in the midst of afghanistan in the midst of all this other crazy stuff. it's which also means that. Americans by and large are engaging with partisan politics in general period. A lot less than you think because they're trying to get their lives together. Most families right now are trying to see if their kids can go back to school safely right now. You know who's up and who's down in. Dc is bottom of the list. I think to your point about Forty-nine being trump's high watermark dave weigel at the washington post Had a hilarious tweet this morning. We said president's approval rating of fifty percent. You know what that means. Trips to biden country to ask biden voters why they still support him googling diners in marin county vr. Be at this yoga studio. That's as with activated charcoal. They never stopped staying malarkey like such a funny joke that is true about how trump was was covered moments. Well to that point also. I thought it was interesting in the nbc poll. That democrats are not biden's problem here so the he had a ninety percent approval among democrats in april and only eight percent today. That's only a two point drop. It should be that high for him with democrats I think it is trumpian. When i hear that number for him. It's like paralleling what. Gop was win for trump for years. Now does it seems trumping on its surface. I actually think it's broader than that. I think it is the fact that we are just growing more polarized as a country. And i think that's the answer to you know biden's approval even though it has dropped four fifty percent it's going to be held up to a certain level. There's going to be a high floor much like there. I mean even trump had a floor that was higher than we thought. It should be. Because i think that polarization has made democrats just more supportive of their president and their politicians. No matter what happens. Yeah because you would think okay. All these scenes of chaos and afghanistan. It's gotta get democrats at some point two so far. We're not seeing it yet. Well yeah and. I wonder you know a few weeks ago. Everyone was thinking that the issue of the midterms was going to be critical race theory. Forgot about that. Where's where's that. how so like. How do we know what's going to be the big thing in the month or two ahead of the game. We ever don't no. You can't no. Which is why i think. Larger conditions like the state of the economy in the pandemic i. I still think we'll end up driving a lot of Vote yeah i guess the way or the other by the time you enter the tatas foul chief phil next tober right that. That's the question. And i think what's helping biden years. I think a lot of people blame fairly or not the unvaccinated population for the delta and not biden who they can see is like trying to get people to do the one thing we need to do to solve the pandemic. Yeah parts of america is brought to you by match. Hey tommy let's talk about dating minute. You're not twenty two anymore. I don't know if you've noticed it's a.

"Been fighting for twenty years. And i as an american who just irrationally loves his and like what the hell are we doing. And i think there's a lot of who outright. Who did it wrong. Which party is up. Where do these people go a of right now questions. Yeah but there's probably a moment to just reflect big picture about what the hell america is doing there so many big stories that i see today that just show that we're a country that feels a lot more rudderless than i thought we would be right now. You know we don't win wars anymore. We can't beat a pandemic. We have a wishy washy nation at the science. The world is on fire. And we don't care we don't agree on anything and this image all of these images make me say what politician what leaders what institutions are asking us to larger existential questions. Of what are we doing. And where the hell are we going. And i do not think that any politician working right now and any real institution is equipped to lead those conversations and to have those conversations. And i would hope that in the midst of something that symbolizes a really big change in what america means for the world. I hope that we'd have some conversations. But i haven't heard it or seen it in mainstream news outlets including my own was going to say it's also. It's not only difficult for to find politicians who are willing to have those conversations but it's difficult to find spaces to have this conversation out of becoming a fight rose spaces. We have right now. Aren't doing so well. Yes like debating the afghan withdrawal on on twitter. Not going so well so far. No no i mean. There was sort of a a bunch of arguments that broke out between journalists over the weekend. You know. there's this amazing reporter named chris chavez. Cj chavez it's usually as byline new york times reporter he wrote an incredible book called the fighters that follows a lot of Human stories of Men and women who fought and post nine eleven worse that i can't recommend enough. He is someone who has been a vocal opponent of these wars for a long time. Who has called out Administration lies or individ- rations right. He's someone who's been like on it and calling bullshit the whole time. He's made the point on twitter last night. That what you're also seeing from a lot of the people who are in afghanistan or covering what's happening is the human element which is that. They worked with translators. They know people were scared to death yet and they are personally in their part of the story because he's journalists are trying to get them out right so you can understand that humanity. Of course that's gonna come through in the coverage. But i agree with you that they're not a lot of voices that are expressing humility. Admiral mike mullen was on. Abc news over the weekend. And he said. In retrospect yeah we should have. We should have gone earlier than we did. He said that he advised president obama that we could turn it around in afghanistan and he was wrong. I give him a lot of credit for being one of the few people saying that. Easy read like dave betray us interviewed in the new yorker by isaac. Shattner who's usually like really tough on his interview subjects and he's making the same points which is like i needed more time more troops. We lacked resolves. It's like twenty. Years isn't till i think it brings up a larger question that i don't think a lot of people have good answers for which is how do you protect and defend human rights around the world beyond military intervention right and so a lot of these and i think a lot of reporters even the ones like like c. j. who worked closely with afghan translators. Now can people you know. The question is when there are oppressive regimes around the world. Your choices. either. If you're somewhere like the government like the united states do intervene militarily or do you find other ways to protect human rights and i don't know that there are a lot of easy answers there which is why you choices about war and there isn't a lot of trust about what we are across the world you know it's it's hard to say you know after something like afghanistan that america can approach other places you know with the clean slate or you know be totally fair players like is there trust enough to even do anything other than have a military intervention right. Yeah i think The lesson we should all learn humility and that we cannot Force human rights at the point of a gun. You know the the horrible trade off that life under the taliban might be horrifying awful evil for some people but life under military occupation was awful in rural the net is appoint that las vegas not cost just for the us but a co- cost for the people look people talk about. Us casualties afghanistan. You really rarely hear the civilian death. Toll number cited or i think that's why people were offended by president biden's critique of the afghan security forces because something like sixty nine thousand afghan army and police Were killed since the war started. And that's that is a massive number of casualties. Yeah so the time. Had another ship burger of a piece for the white house this weekend. was entirely predictable because it involves more than forty democrats lawmakers strategist and party officials unburdening themselves to reporters about their midterm anxieties over afghanistan and the delta surge which is always a constructive thing to do. That's the way to fix. The problem is to talk to the times about it the time note that these democrats are particularly worried about losing moderate swing. Voters independence a concern. That's not entirely unfounded. According to a pair of nbc and cbs polls released over the weekend that show biden's approval rating dipping to around forty nine fifty percents With nbc showing the biggest declines coming from independence rural residents and white voters. Sa- tommy up bill mcinturff who helps conduct the nbc paul. He's a republican pollster He said quote the best way to understand. This poll is to forget afghanistan. So i'll take that to mean he doesn't think the issue is having a big effect on biden's approval ratings and then it's more the pandemic in the economy. But what do you think of what you think of that. First of all. And then what do you make of all the afghanistan polling. You've seen In these last week The best number i saw in these polls was in the. Cbs poll eighty one percent of voters. Said they want the us to help. Afghan interpreters come to the us including seventy six percent of republicans. So that kind of restored. My i was surprised by getting a bit. Yeah i mean..

"Supremacy of the day could not allow there to be an independent black nation. The bulk of the nineteenth century. The us tried to isolate or ignore haiti. It only recognize haiti in eighteen. Sixty two which is you know more than half a century. After the actually won its independence. The french the former colonial country involved in the matter only recognize haiti in eighteen. Twenty five but they did so only after the military pressure. They forced the haitians to accept paying for their freedom. Haiti was required to pay france today. About twenty one billion dollars and to pay off that debt. It took them more than eighty years was the only time where the loser of award demands ransom for the winner. Haiti is the poorest country hemisphere because not despite for an intervention. The slaveholders punished haiti for their role in ending slavery. I kind of indemnity. That many experts stories believe permanently enfeebled katie's development for decades thereafter. Haiti only able to pay off its debt to france for its freedom in the twentieth century so from its inception. Haiti was saddled by kind of burden of history placed on it by these western powers. This history got even more complicated in one thousand fifteen. That is lenin. President woodrow wilson sent. Us marines to haiti as part of this effort to control haiti's political and financial interests. And this is the troubling precedent. Right the last time a haitian president was assassinated was in nineteen fifteen and that precipitated a political crisis which saw us troops go into the country. Prop up a kind of client regime and remain from nineteen fifteen to nineteen thirty four nineteen year occupation. That lasted almost as long as the current. Us presence and of coniston. But very few americans think about it or remember it when they think about their own history and their own committed war efforts. The us occupation installed lighter skin elite. It's made the us treasury fiduciary controller of the haitian treasury nation. National bank was ruled by the military end by citibank and there was a brutal counterinsurgency carried out by the us. At the same time you had major financiers. From new york's wall street's go about consolidating. The haitian economy for american interests a major efforts in the early twentieth century period of american imperium in the caribbean and in central america all sorts of american interventions in that region. Then it's a history that we don't often think about anymore and what kind of affected that almost twenty year occupation have on haiti going forward while it's now part of just a long history of intervention trauma Misdeeds mistakes haiti went on to have of course rather turbulent rest of his twentieth century most notably under the dynasty dynasty of delays who were kleptocrats murderous leaders. They were anti-communist so they were propped up by the us for quite some time if you fast forward to the nineteen ninety s where the us intervened on behalf of the democratically elected leader. Joan bitar steed. That was another moment where the us thought it was coming in to salvage and help and redeem the the haitian public and bolster is democracy. They didn't quite turn out that way at the same time. The clinton administration forced haiti to drop tariffs on american agricultural imports and as a result essentially played a role that bill clinton has since apologized for in state ing the haitian agricultural sector especially its rice farmers. So they're all sorts of political economic legacies linger. Of course haiti's problems are not only foreign imposed but at the same time you do have a pretty significant groundswell of haitian activists and civil society figures. Cry out for their voices and their ideas and their solutions get prioritized in whatever takes place in the coming months. I was find it really interesting. That these eras of history like the haitian revolution and how the us reacted to that or the fact that the us occupied haiti for almost two decades. The fact that we as a country forget about those parts of history. I think shape how we see haiti now. That people are very quick to write it off as chaotic or dysfunctional or just endemically troubled but that we don't really take responsibility as a country for our role in that absolutely. That's the kind of central tension when thinking through what happens next in that yes. Haiti is troubled. Country it's a country that needs all sorts of practical assistance at this point. But at the same time you cannot approach it as this place that you will come and redeem and save. Because haiti is a part of your at the american story is well. It casts a shadow on the american narrative. Its own independence and freedom and in the present day you have a major haitian american diaspora that is vibrant and vocal part of the american society. And rather than seeing this crisis as taking place in this benighted hopeless place that it's it's part of a shared hemispheric story that america does have to have some responsibility. And do you think that the way we talk about. Haiti is racist in interpreting. The we there you'll yes. It is racist. It's racist basic terms not the role that white supremacy in global racial capitalism has played in destroying haiti but also in ways in which this quote unquote superiority. That we're living in is built on literally the death of enslaved laborers you call it failed state Resistant to progress as david brooks have. You can look at french ambassador libra. It's a tragic country. I mean these are. These are discourses that are meant to make white majority society settler societies or former colonial societies. Feel good about ourselves. Yes i think there is a very real argument to make. The the approach will view that has dominated. American thinking about. Haiti is shaped by racial tropes. And this is kind of Cemented american understanding and thinking about haiti. You had then. Senator joe biden in the mid nineties seeing in a tv broadcast that as far as america's concerned it would make a difference of haiti's sank into the bottom of the ocean. God thing to save. Haiti just quietly sunk into the caribbean or rose up three hundred feet. It wouldn't matter a whole world. What does that mean. And why is it okay to think that way about a country. Haiti and not say other parts of the world where there are more explicit geostrategic american interests. It sounds like there's so much to be worried about right now in haiti. I'm wondering if there's anything that people are finding comfort in her anything that people feel hopeful about. If you come to haiti one thing you will hear alert. People talk about is the haitian with religion in its history. But i think it's symbolic as you have all these people with different.

This is a groundbreaking study that clearly shows. That events in the body connected with a stressful environment can lead to change in hair color.

That's real that the idea of someone coming to you and being really stressed out. That's not unusual. Is it no in oftentimes when we see people who are stressed out is because they don't understand what they have maybe they don't have a plan in place maybe.

So let's say the the goal is to retire at age sixty seven and we do a pretty thorough social security analysis when might be the most efficient time to turn on social security and so forth and we come up with a strategy and all of a sudden you decide at age seventy. I wanna go back to work. And we turned on social security at sixty seven sixty eight. We have to now show you. Hey by going back to work. This is the net effect of that income that you were getting so. Let's go through the process and try to figure out when's the right time to turn on social security.

Maybe it's late in the day your workday or maybe early evening or something like that just figuring out when you can sit down and have this conversation and see where it goes again three sixty five retirement dot com so one or the other things that i think would hold people back from seeing a financial adviser is everything seems to be going along just fine the a little complacent about things because the market keeps going up. I'm doing great well. There's a Professor at nyu the told business insider. He believes people right now are becoming and these are his words sloppy and lazy so i know that we get a lot more calls to the show when the market's going down because people are panicking right now. The market seems to be going up. Do you see people as this kind of going along and saying. Hey john i'm doing fine. Why change anything. Yeah i look at twenty twenty and during co vid everyone was very concerned with the markets to follow how fast it dropped and this comes back to what i always say is that you wanna financial plan in place and having a financial plan in place helps you guide yourself through those rocky times and volatile times it makes you discipline during times whereas easy to become undisciplined where should be sown when the market's down while the sudden the market starting to come back and you're late to reenter back into the market if you have the proper financial plan in place it allows you to be disciplined during those times so i would say people are more nervous when the markets are down but right now being sloppy or lazy they think everything is gonna be back to normal. I think that's foolish. I think you have to have a plan in. You'll constantly have to work that plant now plans on something that you have. Then you put on a shelf and you forget about it. I had a friend who Had a lawn mower repair service and he said you know guy i loved to see. It's the guy who comes to me with a bucket full of parts and he's got his lawn mower and said i tried. It didn't work. I need you to fix this. And that's not the position that you want to be in when you are near retirement and the market goes down and somebody looks at you and says i tried to do this myself. I need you to fix this.

Your Brain on Facts
"What was so big about movable type. Well movable type meant that each letter had its own little block and they could be arranged in any format that was needed to make any text. Prior to that, the entire page of text had to be carved in one single block of wood like an enormous stamp. Now, consider the amount of time it would take to carve one such block then multiply that by the number of pages in even the shortest book. Any printing press was an improvement over hand-lettered manuscripts but the Gutenberg press could print over two hundred pages per minute which gave the world what would be called the Gutenberg forty two line, Bible. Books and the ideas that they contained were no longer the exclusive purview of the very wealthy. Greater access to ideas and information was a causative force behind such things as the renaissance, the Protestant reformation and the industrial revolution. But Gutenberg did not create the first movable type press. A printing press with movable metal type was developed in Korea during the Goria Dynasty, which ran from eight nineteen to thirteen ninety, two in a desperate attempt to preserve religious texts in the face of a Mongol invasion. The effort was successful but only just barely. A single copy of a single volume of one book remains. It's called the G, which is the abbreviated title of a Korean Buddhist and policy whose title can be translated as in theology of great Buddhist priests Zen teachings. GDP is easier to say. The key is a collection of experts from the teachings of the most revered Buddhist monks throughout successive generations collated by a monk named Kyogon. It was published in two volumes in thirteen, seventy two though the first volume has been lost completely. Further weakening the Gutenberg was first position. The Korean press wasn't even the first press that had movable type. The earliest known non-metallic movable type press was developed in China in the tenth. Century. That press used clay blocks which would prove to be too fragile. Though, it was thought to have directly influenced the Korean. design. There's also evidence that Gutenberg's press may not be an example of simultaneous invention. A record in the Swiss Museum of paper indicates a papal delegation to `gorio brought printing technology back to Europe. Korea's claim to origination carries some serious bone fee days in the form of two thousand one edition to the memory of the world program by UNESCO the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization. Three years later, the Jiechi memory of the world prize was created, which quote recognizes instiutions that have contributed to the preservation and accessibility of documentary heritage to safeguard against collective amnesia neglect the ravages of time and climate conditions and willful and deliberate destruction. If the listener would like to see the Jixian person they might want to bone up on their French. Rather than reposing rightfully in Korea, the G. has been kept in La Bibliotheque Nationale France in Paris. It was acquired under let's call them unclear circumstances by the first French Console to Korea and past Tula Bibliotheque upon his death. The consensus in Korea is unsurprisingly that they would like it to be returned that cultural artifacts belong in their country of origin. La Bibliotheque adamantly refuses arguing that the Jiechi is out of humanity's common heritage and therefore doesn't belong to anyone. Which raises the question at least in this reporters mind. If it belongs to everyone and therefore no one. What would it matter if they gave it back? On a brighter note, a wood carving print of the cheeky is currently kept in the National Library of Korea. Sometimes a person we remember as the first to do something wasn't preempted by someone else. They merely failed to complete the thing they're credited with. Such as the case with Ferdinand Magellan the name long attached to the first circumnavigation of the earth.
Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations
Suffering Is Part of the Journey
"I want the world to know that when I am in my own personal crisis or when I feel like I am questioning whatever is going on in my life. You are one of the first people I call and particularly now that my is gone. You've been such a solace in bomb for me in in difficult times and I'm wondering pastor Bishop Td. Jakes what's giving you strengthen? This moment you know I have of resilient faith in God and in humanity and that has kind of steered my compass through tough days and tough times and then I realized that everything comes as a schoolmaster teach a lesson and I wanted to believe to. Isn't all life experience here to show us who we are absolutely absolutely enter bring correction correction and redirection and I think this has been a co Viet. It should have been cooked correction team because it's a lot of correction to our values to our sociological understanding of ourselves. Collectively and individually. What do you mean by sociological understanding of ourselves so I think that we have become tribal We head divided into too many segments. Millennials boomers blacks whites Brown's Democrats Republicans us them globally not just nationally but globally. And and I think this Disease that attack without discrimination made us rethink? What is humanity I think that's part of it. I think that America needs to rethink. How much of our resources we have farmed out overseas that we found ourselves needing things that we couldn't manufactured but I've gotten away from manufacturer but I think that we also have to rethink how we value ordinary workers delivery keeper. That's that's by the sociological. Because I think for the first time people who were before invisible they were the invisible men and women to a lot of people in in in our country and other countries have now become have the title of essential this. Yes but here's my concern. I watched after nine eleven. We talked about the police officers and the firemen and they were Iro's erosion. We made a big fuss insane songs and cried and candles and all that but we didn't pay them anymore and they still couldn't afford to live in the cities they protect and so we get through by. I'm wondering what we're GONNA do about minimum wage of what we're GONNA do about their families and making it possible for the people who protect us in these big cities to be able to afford to live in the city they serve in. I mean all the people in conversations. I've had I tell you the one thing that people certainly do understand and have a great respect for teachers and think that they should be paid whatever they want their own kids lives have been permanently altered and that we will take that alteration and be more united as Tim Travers. Trying to do here today Do you think that that has occurred to enough people to have a shift in consciousness for awhile awhile? We get Amnesia quite quickly. And it's amazing when we're frightened how we come down to what matters most but how quickly we deviate from it once. We feel safe and secure geared and I know that sounds negative pessimistic. But but I think for sermons and seen too many funerals to do you much. Yeah I've seen it all before and But every now and then we get a booster shot. That kind of reminds us to humble yourself a little bit and not take so highly of yourself and not to always evaluate your worth by your net worth. There's there's so many lessons to be learned here. I know I mean if you just open our eyes we can see them as we endure this crisis. You wrote this on Instagram. Last week. Be sure to lead by faith and show people that it's possible you said to be joyful no matter the condition. Where are you finding joy right now? You know I have not spent this much time at home it years. Okay with just my wife and I in the house and nobody else and so that has given me an opportunity to appreciate simplicity Sometimes we're so driven by our responsibilities that we get away trump simplicity. That's one of the things I learned from you You know you walk into the Darnall your fruit and spelling your love a blade of grass. Now I can love a blade of grass. Yes Sir you've been so inspirational. You started out talking about me but you. You've also been very inspirational. 'cause I've got to see you behind the scenes at seed. What quality human being you are and I think that this creates an opportunity where we start to appreciate each other and say it to each other. The things that that gave us comfort during this time costs no money at all a kind word a quick. Tech's a you know a a moment. Facetime checking on elderly person left alone. checking on successful people. Because it didn't matter how successful you were. This was still devastating. And you still need a little love a little hershey kisses. You know you know you. Suspended those incredible in-person services at the Potter's House in Dallas. And you say this is a great time for us all to be able to re-instill our core values and for families to reconcile and also reconnect. I mean just like you and the first lady Sereda have been able to spend time together so many families haven't and for a lot of people that that ain't so sweet. Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's true that that is true. It will either work for you or against you one of the things that I thought about the church part of it. Was You know when the teacher talks all through the classes but when the test comes she's always quiet and this was a testing moment and there was a time that we weren't able to draw from our traditional types of worship services because the test was in session? How much have we really learned? How much have we really grown? And even to those families who are lucked alone and they are combative. They will either find a way to work. Their way toward wholeness or toward a decision. That says we're better part than we are together. Not every story has a happy.
The Big Story
The invisible epidemic of drugged drinks
"If you've spent an evening anywhere people gather for drinks and a good time over the past three decades or so you've probably seen a poster or heard a warning watch your drink. Don't leave it unattended. If in doubt pour it out it's not a new problem. It is is a chillingly persistent one. It is also an issue for which Canada is still struggling to find a coherent strategy and for all those warnings warnings and awareness campaigns. Unless you've been a victim of these drugs you're probably underestimating. The effect they can have that was driven home in December and a series of viral videos that documented one young woman's week long recovery from a drug slipped into her drink at a bar. How big was the dose? She got don't know what drug was. It exactly also don't know how many other women were targeted in the same establishment published at least one but beyond that we don't know before you can find the solution to a problem you have to understand the SCOPE COPA and we're still grappling with the fact that these anecdotal stories and viral videos and occasionally even charges and convictions are likely just the tip of the iceberg. So how can we see. What's underneath the water? I'm throwing this. Is the big story Rosa. Sabah reports at the Calgary Bureau for the star but this time she covered hovered something out on the East Coast. Hi Rosa I'm doing. Well a little more disturbed after reading your report. But why don't you start by telling me about jobs as Sonya. What happened to her? Sure so shows. Eight is a twenty year old student in Nova Scotia She's traveled with some of her classmates to Halifax on January seventeenth to celebrate her birthday her twentieth birthday as well as kind of she described it as kind of like her last big night house. She's in her last semester. She's looking forward to graduating starting her career and she wanted to have one night out with her friends. Celebrate her birthday. Celebrate the next chapter of her life if but unfortunately it did not end well so they went out to a few a few bars clubs. She describes it as she had a few drinks not got a lot but what happened was she started vomiting. She started getting sick at the second place they went to and her friends took her home when they took her home to the Airbnb I she started losing control of her legs so they were numb. She couldn't walk properly. Her vision was blurring. They knew something was wrong and so they called nine hang on one and brought her to the hospital where she was told that her drink had likely been drugged so not a great end to birthday. Luckily obviously her friends were with her but those effects lasted for more than a week so. Jj shared a few videos on facebook showing her completely unable to walk. She needs to have people helping her. She can't control her legs and obviously a very very frightening experience. Not Not what she was planning at all. Tell me a little bit more About the videos maybe be described them a bit and and why did they go so viral because these things are really spread. Su there's a couple of videos one of the shared on the evening after that night out and then one of them was shared the day after that January nineteenth and I found not one really striking. Because she's in a living room I believe she's at home with her parents. It's and she tries to stand up from the couch. She needs help standing up from the couch. I'm and she's holding onto the coach with one of her arms and then both of her arms. She's trying to move her legs and you can tell that she can't really she can't really move her knees properly. Her legs are kind of flopping around. Looks like she barely has any control of them. And this this is a day and a half after the drug and I think the why these went viral. I mean there's two reasons one is. It's it's striking. When we think of what people call date rape drugs we don't realize the kinds of effects they can have? Maybe we think of someone passing out someone having Amnesia. We don't think someone completely losing control of their limbs for multiple days and the second reason that I think that her videos went viral is just because people don't share these experiences if you do get drugs or you believe you've been drugged it's a you know. Most people wouldn't share video of themselves and say look. This happened to me so I think it's the honesty combined with sort of the shock of what those drugs did to her. That made these videos resonate resonate with people across Canada. How unusual is that When you talk to doctors or people at the hospital for those symptoms to last so long afterwards I mean you reported where did that? She was still feeling the effects almost a week later. And to your point yes that is. I mean maybe stupidly but not something that I would associated with these kind of drugs. It's not something I would have associated with it either but when I talked to a doctor here with Alberta Health Services Dr Mark Your Amo He said it's actually more common than you think. It definitely depends on the drug. It depends ends on dose. It depends on the person but he said it's not uncommon for the effects of these drugs to last up to two weeks. So I mean the act. Sadly the act of of someone being given these drugs And getting sick is not news. It happens a lot but one of the things you kind of delved into his what we still don't understand stand About the problem as a whole what. What are we missing? What pieces are there are still not there well? Data is definitely a big part of it. I mean the first thing I did is is try and find out on how many people have their drink. Spiked are drugged on a night out. And they're they're simply is not conclusive conclusive data. There's been a few studies done on A. D. F. S. A. which is the acronym for drug assisted sexual assault there have been studies. Toxicology studies on those people to try and determine how many of with them were drugged with what we think of the common date rape drugs. which are I rookies or Rohypnol and GHB which is gamma hydroxy? Acid and those are the common ones and those studies. The toxicology studies have found that. The numbers of those are very low. I but there's a number of reasons why I want. That doesn't mean that. Drink spiking slow first of all those are not the only drugs that are used in drink spiking. You can use almost anything. I missed your Ema told me like it's you you could use Ritalin you could use antidepressants. I mean any of these drugs. Combined with alcohol are bound to affect somebody and as he pointed out many people are simply he plied with alcohol and that counts as well as drug facilitated sexual assault. So it's it's hard to tell. Just how many people are purposely drugged. It's hard hard to tell. What's maybe a combination of alcohol and a medication? They're already on. It also doesn't help that both hypnotized or rupees. GHB disappear from the blood system really really really quickly. I between six to twelve hours but often even less than that and so if someone is tested which they often aren't those drugs might not show up so first of all studies make it very difficult to tell when someone is purposely drugged second of all that data isn't even collected collected in most hospitals primarily. Because it would just be so difficult to get data we can rely on when you spoke to people at hospitals and elsewhere. What do they suggest what we could do? Maybe to get a better sense of the picture. Is there anything or is it. Just sort of the nature of this particular beast. We'll obviously one thing as well that I that I should have mentioned action. That really affects us. Not knowing the scale of this problem is the fact that many people don't report this. We all know that. There's a huge stigma attached to to sexual assault and while not all cases of drink spiking and in sexual assault like shows Aa. Luckily she had her friends with her There's still kind of an element of shame. This is something that we know. Our society is is slowly progressing with but but we're definitely still not there and a lot of young women are taught to watch their drinks. Stunned drink too much. You know don't wear don't wear the wrong thing and so there is an I mean another another person who was a victim of drink spiking who I spoke to. She's in the Article Angela putter. That's what that's what she said. She said when she when she realized she'd been drugged she didn't want to report it because she felt ashamed. She even had people in her life. Tell her will. You should have been more careful all so one of the things that that the doctor I spoke to who really wanted to highlight wise. First of all if you're the victim report it go to the hospital as soon as possible if you believe leave. You've been drugged. If you're the friend of the victim believed them bring them to the hospital so they can get tested and if you're a medical professional believed them and test them. I think that that's one of really one of the really big barriers is is people not getting tested people not reporting these things soon enough and people not leaving each other. I wanted to go back to Joe's as experience in particular because it also illustrates something else about the larger problem. So tell me about what happened when she discussed her incident in particular and where it happened with people at the hospital hospital sure so she actually went to the hospital three times as she went obviously the night that it happened and she was not tested for for date. Rape Drugs She said that hospital staff told her there were so many different drugs. That could be used. That testing would basically
Analyst Brandel Chamblee on all things golf
"All Right Ladies Gentlemen we are joined by a very special guest a friend of ours ars Panama on probably a handful types now. But I think it's been at least a year so he is the lead analyst for Golf Channel One of the best analysts in the game. I got a whole intro. Here wait till you see all this he is a PGA tour winner the Greater Vancouver Open in nineteen ninety eight. He is now defunct finished well about. We're not worried about that. He finished tied for Eighteenth at the nineteen ninety nine masters never made the cut of the PGA Championship. Which I want to ask you about tied for forty fourth at the two thousand and one? US Open tied for sixty second at the open championship in two thousand one. Pretty good stretch author of the anatomy of greatness. Which I've read Mr brand-new shambling? Welcome come to the show my friend. Yeah those last few terms are not defunct. They're still they're still they're still up and running And it's always a pleasure to join you guys Who's there in the studio? We've got myself guys. Would you like to introduce yourself Frankie here brandon. Trent also got lurch. That could to meet you four to it so you tell us a little bit pre show that you just came from a little shoot with rory. I wanted to address royal because I was just reading this article earlier. This week. That came out independent. Paul kimmage was going on with Rory. You know nothing's off limits a an amazing acing insightful interview and he mentioned you rory in this interview and there are some negative words that you have received leave before some positive words but I thought we would start with some very positive words from rory and what happened was I played a little clip from year guys discussion on live from from or golf central or whatever it was right after the Patrick read winning the masters a few years ago and the clip. You essentially Go through how this has to be the most disappointed. The point that rory's Ben since leaving Augusta in two thousand eleven you talk about Amnesia from his first tee shot that day which if anybody remembers he hits it a million yards right off the first tee and you talk about that had to creep into the rest of his game and rory goes on to say it hurts when you're on the receiving end and sometimes I think And sometimes all that stuff hurts but I think brandon was one of the smartest guys in Gulf. He's brilliant I like him. He's giving me a book on. Bobby Locke I have it here. So so what are your thoughts and hearing those kinds of comments from Roy a that that type of stuff you know it hurts to hear but also be that he says you're the smartest guys in the game. Yeah you know when you said that in a chair where somebody asked every two minutes. What do you think Why did he do that what you know? What reasons did he? You know made him win. Why did he lose those kinds of things? I mean you have to very often say critical things if people you really like and admire and sometimes you have very complimentary things about people that you don't particularly care for it's just the nature of the job and you know and also the nature of Of all of us that I could wax on for an hour about all the great attributes and the one thing everybody will remember just one critical comment Has All the time I'll do interviews with people and go on and on and on about a particular player for I don't know Ten minutes and then I might say one critical thing and then that'll be the headline and in the story or the podcast or whatever I get totally understand it But it's just hard of the. It's a part of the job I have it. So it's the nature of the job. I have in the analysis business. And you know if you say everything's great and when something comes along. That really is great. While you've desens- Does the whole world and they're not going to believe you so you know he set up there. At least I do I sit there and I just try to as best I can but shots in historical context and when they're great you know without being hyperbolic great when there are awful without being pollick awful so he goes on to sort of talk about how the Rangers that day. He had a left mess. Then he comes out to the first day and he hits it miles right right and your analysis was obviously that though that that shot is clearly. He's going to remember that throughout the entire day at affected the rest of his round. Like how could you tell that. Anita from that. Shot from whatever's going on with the swing was affecting the rest of his entire route. I it's informed by I years and years and years and years of struggling with those issues myself and You know I mean we all have those issues. You had a horrible horrible shot off the first tee or somewhere around the rest of the round in particular when you get to a place where that miss is now Even more vulnerable people because of a penalty. Then they're gonNA favor it and predictably miss it the opposite direction are they gonNA make nuanced changes to their offspring. So I've I've spent the last twenty years of my life watching golf. The way radiologists looks at X.. Rays you know I. I'm I'm all in I'm all allies and I am I research every detail of it and you know it's it's a it's an educated. Guess I guess if you want to call it what it really was but Roy May differ with me later on in that interview. He said he forgot about. It doesn't think about it and and and again I say you know. There is a crucial crucial role of Amnesia. The maintenance power of every athlete you have to be able to forget the inability to forget is infinitely more more devastating than an inability to remember for an athlete. You've got to be able to forget the bad stuff Years ago there was a people talk about about this interview that Jack Nicklaus gave or this speech rather than dynamics gave where he said he'd never missed a pot on the last hole that he needed to make and a man held his arm Arma said. Excuse me Mr Nicholas just last week I was watching you and a PGA tour champions event you had a four hundred or on the last. Oh you missed it and maybe you just kind how to forget that one. and Mr Jackson let me repeat at Never Mr Putt on the last hole of the tournament that I needed to make and the man in the crabbers incredulous and later on he went up and talked to Bob. Tell this man sin. Why wouldn't Jag just admit it? And and Bob said well hold on a second. That's how you think right and Manson absolutely got admit go so you're telling the greatest athlete of all time that he should think how you think you're far often the greatest athlete of all time or maybe. We should just all jacking and again. That's and Mesia. You need to have it. You need to extract. All of the good there is is to get out of every situation and then forget all the bad and then and then move on. I remember one time. One thing you told me was that you know in order to really get to that level level where you're a we're obviously talking about some of the best players of all time and Roy who's going to be the number one ranked player in the world again here very soon but like to get to that top level you you basis Jason like at some level you have to just beat almost delusional. I mean you have to have almost a blind ridiculous illogical belief in yourself at the Times that like your perfect and even better than you actually think you are and if you don't you just can't make yeah. I mean the game of golf for sport in general and he'd you're constantly attacked by not only the people that you're competing against but by the media and fans listen and then you have your own sort of Uninvited guests in your head. You know this little demons pop up and and you you have to lay waste all of those as best you can and you can do it through sort of you know arrogance you can do it to sort of self delusion but I mean it's rare that the the athletes can get to that place where they need to get through sort of rational balanced Thought and I think that's one of the things that makes rory such an appealing superstar. Superstar is that he's a lot closer to federal Along the lines to be approachable humble symbol And yet the right level of arrogance me word has a negative connotation to but I think it's important to have the right level of arrogance as an athlete but it's so often accompanied by the less poudel aspects of that word. The right level level of it is Well it's it's very present in Roy. So let's fast forward a couple years for his game now he's Mid's mm it's kind of insane has been since two thousand fourteen that he's won a major championship of course had really good years along the way really good finishes very consistent Golf. Where do you see his game? Now a specially as putting I mean I know you've you've done a ton of research on on putting feel versus technical and all that rory's biggest struggle has been the putting were you general thoughts on Roy's game going this year especially as putting. Yeah well I think you made changes in the way. He prepares works out and that has allowed his body to move better so he's less inclined to get injured. Still got this. You know. Full reg motion and lots of speed I think had to go there with the working out with rory I like it. Yeah but I mean He. I as I've when I criticize if you want to use that word his workout routine. I was watching him getting injured. Nagging injuries popping up. I was watching his Co.. PEDS BE DECLINE AT AGE win. It should have been maintaining or even going up and you know I mean he I I said what I said. I couldn't have it with anymore. Caveats and the next day he posted a video game. Self working out I think I've told you this before about a month later I was on a set of live from said that the match-play WDC AC match-play Roy. One in fulfilling an obligation on the set nice come up but I was busy. I was working. I didn't look his direction at intern around when he was walking off no effort to connect with him and I felt a tap on my back and turn around and goes you know I was just fm with you you know. That's that's what we do. I was just having fun because I didn't mean any armide and I was like I get no problem. I didn't take offence to it at all but but I think in the long run. I do believe that rory changed as the way he fares works out so his body moving better less inclined to get injured And then with the short game you know I think he made a good move going to work with the Brad Faxon I say work with. It's really just having conversations with then and Brad is given him permission if you will to be less careful on the grains to be more clinic more reactionary which is crazy because because you know the game of golf right now is just inundated with pseudo-scientists pat sells off as a pseudo scientists and then and then they have cluttered up the game with very complicated esoteric thoughts that are not doing their students any favors whatsoever and I think Roy did a good the job of divorce in himself from those thoughts those ideas and those teachers and he's on the right path and then I think mentally were whatever place he needed to find find he got there towards the end of last year to sort of play his best gall I think. You know the rivalry. They may not call it a rivalry but it certainly feels like looks like rivalry between Brooks So I think that's that's fine tuned. Whatever it was it was missing trump his game into To a great spot so it sets up I think beautifully for Roy going into twenty twenty. What's your relationship like with Brooks Kepco? He kind of tweeted. I love what may or may not have been a clown picture with your face on it. Yeah I don't have a relationship with Brooks I yeah. I don't have a relationship with mini tour players of said forever that my job is sort of incompatible with having relationships toward players to speak about I think Brooks's a heck of talent Allen but I I think Brooks comes to this game sort of a A team sport combative Sports Sports Mentality. I think that's the sort sort of sensibility that he brings to go off. It's not really consistent with the traditions of the game. And it's a gentleman sport I think his comments mints about there'd be no rivalry between him and rory and saying that Roy hadn't won a major championship since he was Plan the PGA tour. which which by the way is ludicrous because it was a professional Golfer and twenty twelve? He just wasn't good enough to play on the stage. That Roy was on. I do believe Roy's won three major championships. Pittsburgh successional dolphins so it was Just disrespectful Not only the traditions of the game. It was disrespectful to rory And I wouldn't be surprised if you know and and sort of a roundabout way Work to motivate rory. Don't know that I'm just guessing but but who wouldn't use that to To motivate them so. I don't think like that face picture. Brandel I don't think you like Brooks did that to you. I think he's had that comment that he wasn't good enough for a long time. He's back I don. I saw it. I thought it was funny. I actually posted a picture of myself with a clown shortly shortly after that in response to his clowns because I it doesn't bother me. I mean it's again it comes with the territory of what I do for a living did that. There's GonNa be some retribution or or Kickback from some of the things. I've said you know I I I said before I mean I'm kind of half joking but I have left a few shows before and thought. Wow I don't really agree with what I said You know sometimes it just comes out wrong. Aw Show true boy. Have I been there gene. How do I get there now? He's talking about that happened. That's breaking segment right there. I mean we. It's it's incredibly feature that sometimes you just start you come from a good place with it. You know you have the information and then by the time it all comes out. You're like what the fuck did I say seriously. Yeah I don't would agree with what I just said. It happens from time. TV or radio or PODCASTS. It's a little golf. I mean just get it wrong. Ties make mistakes as a book. You know You try not to try to learn from us. Try to be accurate you know. That's the goal is to be accurate. Fair it doesn't always work out that way.

Thanks everybody nobody we did it and thanks for nothing game scoop we told you twice. Yeah well until somebody tweeted at me I remember see. There's a thing that happens is called game scoop and show Amnesia and everything we talk about on the show. I at least don't remember we just scout right after this. That's the thing with some off with the version of it. I get is people like tweet me some some funny quote or something that they like from the show and then I'm like what's that and they're like you said it my. I don't have any memory of that. What happens with that too is that it's usually something that I said when they say that to you and you're like I definitely remember saying that I'm like I said all right? Let's get into it. Let's get into it next. Gen Consoles cels their top of mind with everyone. Everyone's excited about him. I like him Your for them. Yeah you think they should happen. Has Several of them at home. How he doesn't they were action? Our friends over at Games Industry Biz ran a survey of eight thousand gamers aged eleven to sixty four across Germany Spain and France and Italy asking them what next Gen console feature is most important to you to the people that took the survey. And we've we rent service similar GM. But I thought this is interesting. It's a pretty good sample size. Eight thousand people in the in in Europe. What do you think is the most the most wanted next? Gen Console Feature Agra compatibility roller. It's not I think that was our whole the result when we were in that poll on our homepage also We Will Dan Stapleton random feature around how backward compatibility is basically the trend for next Gen. It's become the standard was subscription options service on there. That was not on there. It's gotta be no it's gotta be like power it was it was better graft who can forget better graphics there's the fullest hold on. No no I just think it's amazing that people could look at AAA Games today and be like insistent. I just can't can't we can't get here fast. No but you gotTA gotTa War. No but look. That's the kind of quote in like ten years gets brought backup like think about. Ps Three Games compared to now and like there's probably some from games give two thousand eleven. We like Video Games canton. Don't look at Asai said before era is why we need games to look better than this and I I mean they came. Looks Amazing still. There's handles on like a big part of it is like frame rate right right. So it's like maybe in level of detail and quality to your earlier point maybe we've picked out a little bit like the. PS three xbox one the big debates where like the relief relief finite amount of differentiation between graphical fidelity. So maybe that's just a carryover. Yeah well better. Graphics was far and away the most desired next Gen console feature feature in this survey the only other feature to get anywhere close to that level of consensus was shorter load times Eight K. Resolution was less important than motion motion controls backwards compatibility and ability to play physical games so they want better graphics but AK resolution they. Yeah uh-huh deprioritization. Just means you have to buy another expensive television. I don't even have a fourteen. TV At motion controls were important to forty nine percent of all survey gamers and fifty ninety seven percent of console gamers. That's weird really a new over that I thought so too must controllers like the playstation four controller that have slightly augmented motion controls. Charles like those are almost entirely abandoned. Now there's like an spiderman it had a little bit of that but like it's never it's never used anymore. It's really funny to go back and play like older like like when that was a newer thing and launch. PS Four Games. I think it's uncharted for where it's like. You shake the controller to throw the grenade and they have the They always added balance. Beams in every game. Amy Add balance. Meet Him. Yeah didn't need that. But you know you gotta have the controller valid on it Backwards compatibility what's important to forty eight percent of all surveyed gamers and fifty nine percent of the the console crowd and playing physical Games was important to forty seven percent. Surge surveyed gamers fifty eight percent of console. Gamers the situation for backwards compatibility where when when it was taken out of consoles a lot the reason ing was always like we have data and nobody uses it or it's actually it's only the parents correct career. It's a selling point for the parents. Oh they'll get to use all their old games. Okay I can justify the or for a kid to say that to the point that it is such a Trojan horse thing. I don't think a lot of people keep their collections. Enes and Dipak in they. Just don't because we're on Vega cops. I've talked about this on skip before but the backwards compatibility on xbox xbox live ecosystem is such an underrated. Did it's so incredible like those games the fact that you're not booting into some separate weird. Og xbox or xbox three sixty interface. It's like those games are just there and you can buy them and play them like you can buy symphony of the night on Xbox one it's like you're sx. I bought sx three. I just had a desire to play it ten dollars. It was installed and played. It was all beautiful like cool. My Hat's off to them for that. You can donate your former councils who need those anymore. Yeah I'd I just I just do it. A normal person does and they're just sitting under arrest office like this you can just bring them in and put them under your desk. Yeah that's my new under the bed. Yep to just hide it. They're just storage. Now Y- true I was just. I was stunned by how different. These poll results are from from what we would find if we surveyed the audience I think graphics is that it's been that that's been the Super Nintendo. It just sounds so funny to me more pretty better graphics wchs load times like are they really. That long like both Sony and Microsoft are talking about load times and demoing them and then it was. It pulled second here behind graphics. Yeah exactly bullets. It's because they've been talking about them. It's almost like a marketing trick. I I would assume but it. It's dependent on the game in terms of times. Yeah Control was pretty insane. I mean I play mostly I have the choice. I play most P. C.'s. So maybe I'm not I don't know how long. ps four times are for a typical game. These days The lowest priority features were virtual. You'll reality compatibility and hand-held motivational. Sorry Nintendo. Yeah it's cool that after you know I guess seventy years of area or so of video games existing. We're finally solving load time. It's been a while I like. We got through all that stuff though graphics will we're we're still tweaking. I understand that's an ongoing issue. We're almost done with graphics load to previous generations. But but we're GONNA fix ex- load times. That was just low on the list for a while. Low Times weren't a problem. At the beginning. It became a problem two decades. That's true except for like fifty four stuff like that but yeah pc gaming what about when you're waiting in line editor came to play a game time. You didn't put your quarter down Yup and then you gotta
The return of measles
"Anyone around in the nineteen sixties and earlier new not to mess with the measles measles, aka Rubia is a dangerous and highly contagious. Infectious disease. It was common knowledge back, then that if you're lucky measles merely came with a high fever, cough, runny, nose red, watery eyes, the infections signature angry red rash. But if you're not so lucky, you can add to that any number of complications, about ten percent of measles patients, get severe diarrhea and ear. Infections more. Dire complications include pneumonia and encephalitis, which is brain swelling that can further cause convulsions deafness cognitive impairment, and even death contracting disease while pregnant can cause premature birth low birth weight for the baby and even miscarriage and some people develop a rare and fatal central nervous system disease called sub acute, sclerosis, penance f- litis about seven to ten years after they've had measles today. However, many people don't know much about this terrible disease, which one struck three to four million people. Annually in the US alone and killed four hundred to five hundred per year. That's because in nineteen sixty three a highly effective vaccine debuted and measles, infections plummeted them in nineteen seventy eight the centers for disease control and prevention began working to totally eliminate this infectious disease from the United States through widespread use of the measles, vaccine, it worked by the year, two thousand measles, was declared eliminated from the nation during the decades when measles was steadily on the decline memories of the disease and its many dangers also disappeared. Unfortunately, measles began showing its ugly red face again in the late two thousand and twenty teens. And as of two thousand nineteen, it's raging in many parts of the United States, including New York state in Washington state, while many of these outbreaks occurred because of people with the infection coming into the US one large outbreak in two thousand fourteen that second three hundred and eighty three people was largely due to an unvaccinated group of Amish people. Another outbreak started at Disneyland in California in two thousand fifteen possibly due to someone contracted measles overseas. One hundred and forty seven people became sick. The return of measles is concerning enough. But in two thousand fifteen study showed people who came down with measles, where risk for getting a raft of other diseases, their immune systems had developed a sort of amnesia when measles attacks your body, it goes to war with your white blood cells, specifically, binds to your beat and T-cells, then wipes them out being T-cells are highly specialized cells critical to your health. They're the ones that recognize infectious germs in your body, then quickly multiplied to fight off, these unwelcome invaders, a subset of your being T-cells also remembers each infection you can contract if that kind of bacteria or virus strikes, again, they recognize it, and prompt your immune system to spring into action, so fast that you probably won't get sick. That's immunity. But because measles, trashes your white blood cells. It places you at high risk of coming to other infections and not just for a few weeks after you get it after mass measles, vaccinations occurred in the nineteen sixties childhood deaths from measles plunged as expected. But. So did childhood deaths from a host of other infectious diseases in resource poor countries, the drop in childhood death rates post measles? Vaccination was as much as thirty to fifty percent in some of the poorest nations. It was a whopping ninety percent. In two thousand twelve researchers began to figure out why this is a study with rhesus monkeys showed that, while the monkeys immune systems began producing Nubian T-cells a month after contracting the measles, these new cells only remembered that the monkeys had had measles in the past. They didn't recall any of the other infections. The monkeys had had basically the monkeys immune systems had him nesia. This meant the primates would have to go through all sorts of illnesses, again to regain the immunity levels that built up since birth, and it appears that the same is true for humans in two thousand fifteen results of a study were published in the journal science that showed children who got the Musil's and survived. We're more likely to subsequently die from another infectious disease than kids who never got the measles in the four countries studied Denmark, England, Wales and the United States, the children's immune systems all appeared to be weakened for two to three years post measles. Although the measles vaccine is highly effective. Measles remains one of the leading causes of death among young children globally. Nearly one hundred and ten thousand people died from measles around the world in two thousand seventeen mostly children under the age of five on a more positive note because increasing numbers of kids are receiving the measles, vaccination deaths from this infectious disease plunge. An incredible eighty percent between two thousand two thousand seventeen which quotes to the prevention of about twenty one point one million deaths. Measles is still common in impoverished countries, especially those in African Asia where vaccination levels are lower. Furthermore, outbreaks are especially damaging in countries recovering from natural disasters or undergoing violent conflicts in these situations. The administration of vaccines is often interrupted some more people are at risk of contracting the disease, and when many people end up in cramped quarters such as refugee, camps or emergency shelters. The situation is ripe for an outbreak since measles spread so easily transmitted mainly through coughing sneezing and close personal. Contact the virus concern. By for up to two hours in the air and on surfaces. This means an infected person can coffin one room, then leave and a second person walking into the room. Two hours later can contract measles, simply by breathing in the contaminated air. With a highly effective and reasonably priced vaccine available. The fight continues to radically measles from the earth.
