"Amazing. And Pedro was actually initially caught by the people of the ayacucho tribe. Over in Peru. Okay, this one time he tried to abduct a little 9 year old girl, and he was caught in the act. Naturally, and mind you, he's doing this in the market. Okay? This is where he would go. I guess he figured, hey, there's a lot of people here. You know, no one's going to really notice. And that's exactly what happened here, except he failed at this one. And it pissed off the mob so bad that they captured him. And they went about trying to bury him while they did. They buried him up to his neck in sand. And they were about to kill him when an old woman who was a missionary stepped in to save his ass. Bro, that freaking pisses me off because this guy's just saved like that. And that old lady? Bro, she should have just let him die. Yeah. But then again, I'm sure she didn't know. And she's a missionary, though. Yeah. But you know, I have to agree with you. She should have let him. Unfortunately, it didn't work out that way. Somehow this old lady manages to convince the tribe to let him go. And she tells him she would take him and turn him into the authorities, and they of course trusted her enough to follow through this. Now there is some sources that say that he was turned over to the Peruvian authorities who in turn just sent them to Colombia.

"It is said from 1948 down to 1958, which would bring us to ten years, but give or take here. We're not really precise on the dates. And apparently this all came about due to an assassination of one of the liberal presidential candidates named Jorge gaetan. Apparently, conservatives and liberal peasants won at each other, you know? And even the military forces and the national police went up against each other too. So these guys are just having out. All right, brother against brother here. Yeah, I was complete Civil War. I mean, it's estimated over 200,000 people died during this period, so as you can imagine, Pedro's dad was unfortunately one of the casualties in all this and quite obviously was not involved in Pedro's life. And it's amazing how many of these serial killers seem to have a similar origin story, you know? Just like these superheroes and the villains that we read about or watch TV on, you know, everyone has some sort of similar origin story. And the serial killers tend to also share that. They are either faced with some form of physical abuse or they grew up in a dysfunctional household. And in Pedro's case, it was anything but ordinary, you know, Pedro's mom, benida, was pregnant with Pedro at the time of his father's death. Yeah, and he himself even claims that he is the 7th child of 13 be Neil de was busy. And at one point, his mom is even seen describing him as someone who was a very polite and he had aspirations of being a teacher and albeit this is probably when he was a little boy. And yeah, I mean, mommy's loving outlook on Pedro was unfortunately short lived. You see, beni da was a sex worker. So she would at times bring men to her house to conduct her business and her Pedro. There was nothing more than a divider or a curtain separating her work from family. That's a funny way of putting it. Yeah, but it's true. I mean, and mommy faced her own share of physical and sexual abuse as well from the hands of her own clients. And as luck would have it, Pedro gets to experience his own abuse by the hands of his mom too, so can you imagine what it was for a young child not to only see you bring men home to have sex with, but he most likely saw you having sex and then on top of that, you're physically abusive to him. I mean, I think we've seen enough cases to know how this affects his development. You're not lying, yes, he, for sure, this type of experience would have lasting damages to his mental development. Of course, we're not experts in that, but come on. At this point, everyone knows this is going to be something that is traumatic in nature. But one day Pedro, you know, he's caught by his mom doing a profoundly disgusting act. He was caught fondling his younger sister was baby sister. Naturally, House of moms supposed to react to this situation. Okay? She's of course discuss it, despite the fact that she herself is no sink..

"Over the last four episodes we've told the story of Uruguayan air force flight 5 71, the plane was bound for Chile carrying members of the old Christians rugby team when it crashed deep in the Andes Mountains. The surviving passengers spent a total of 72 days stranded in freezing conditions at nearly 12,000 feet before two of them climbed over the mountains for help. Today, we're speaking with mountaineer Ricardo Pena. While climbing near the crash site in 2005, he discovered a jacket belonging to one of the survivors and wreckage from the plane that had never been found, three decades later. The following year, Pena led a National Geographic expedition, retracing the escape route, Nando parrado and Roberto canessa took out of the Andes into Chile. Ricardo Pena, welcome to against the odds. It's great to be here. Thanks for having me. I want to ask you about your expeditions in the Andes. But first, can you tell us how you learned about miracle flight 5 71 and the old Christians rugby team? Yeah, the story of the Andes survivors was talked about a lot in Mexico. I grew up in Mexico City. It was talked about everywhere all over the world. But it hit even closer in Latin American countries. And Mexicans made a movie in 1974, which now you can find that movie entitled survive. I was about 6 years old when I first saw the movie. It was a very bad movie, but this story was so powerful that it made a huge impact. We would catch it on TV. It was just an incredible story. And I also always had a fascination with snow. Wanted to touch no go to snowy places and that whole story took place on a glacier, the snow was what was trapping them. You mentioned the snow, what else about the story captured your imagination? Well, the adventure. I was always fascinated by stories of adventure. I had remember reading about the first ascent of Everest in a children's book when they first reached the South Pole. Those explorations just seemed amazing to me. I just love true adventure. And this is an incredible survival story, especially because unlike other adventure stories, these guys were not professional adventurers. They weren't going prepared to survive in Arctic conditions or anything like that. There are rugby players going to a rugby game in Chile in spring, and so they had a few sweaters and things like that, but that was it. And all of a sudden the crash in the middle of the Andes, at high altitude on a glacier, and they have to survive many of them had never even touched or seen snow. Wow. In these stuck for 72 days without anything to eat or drink, they have to melt snow to drink and eventually have to eat the body so that they had to survive. So it's truly incredible, survival story. Out of 45 passengers 16 survived. But it was incredible how to survive. Everybody thought they were dead after ten days. And so they had to get themselves out of their by themselves. So that makes it truly one of the most amazing survival stories in modern times and that's why I loved it. So this was a story that made an impression on you as a kid. Can you tell us about the moment when you rediscovered the story again? Yeah, other than the movie and what my family members were talking, I didn't have any access to any more information, but it definitely planted a big seed. And then my whole family, we will move to the United States. I ended up studying music at buffalo, the sage university of New York at buffalo. And that's when I found the book alive. And I was like, oh, wow, this is the story of the Andes survivors. And I just couldn't put it down, so I read the whole book many times. And then I found the Hollywood movie alive in a documentary that they made and I rented them. This is in the 90s. They rented it from a blockbuster, video store. And so the movie and the documentary over and over, I was just fascinated by it. Wow. In about the same years, I realized also that I was really missing adventure. I used to be in scouts and Mexico. And we used to go camping and hiking. And I really liked that. And I was missing that contact with nature, adventure, physical challenge. And so I started doing hikes in the adirondacks, and sometimes in the winter. And it was all mixed in. Me discovering the love of mountaineering and then being fascinated by that story and thinking of the survivors. When I was climbing winter sense of the high peaks in New York State, I was thinking about it, I have imagined surviving these snowy conditions, low temperatures, and I didn't know I was going to become a mountaineer amount guide, go to Everest or be involved in the Andes survivor story. I had no idea. This episode is brought to you by decoy, an acclaimed winery in the duckhorn portfolio.

I moved to Colorado to pursue mountaineering and I met a mountain guide there. And he invited me to an expedition to Aconcagua, the highest of the Andes. And so in 2001, I went with him and I climbed back on and I was excited to be in the Andes, you know? And I was thinking again about the survivors and everything. So while I was there, Mendoza Argentina, I asked the local context there, what they knew about this story. They're like, oh yeah, the story of the year of the Uruguayan plane sure, of course.

"In the morning. Nanda steps outside in his greeted by another clear bright day. He's just had his best night's sleep since they'd been on the mountain. The tail section isn't large. But since it's only nanda roberto and tinton nana was able to spread out and it didn't hurt that the rump had him feeling good and drowsy. His hope for the day is to cover as much distance as possible so he helps tinton and roberto pack up the sled and head out continuing east into the valley. At first he enjoys feeling the sun on his skin but after a while he feels the sun burning his torso straighter his many layers of clothing. He's thankful when a few hours later they come to an outcropping that provides a bit of shade. He sits underneath the piled rocks and scans the surroundings now that they've hiked farther into the valley. He can see more clearly. The base of the mountain. What they were able to see from the crash site was only a small fraction of it. It's an enormous large enough. He thinks to fit all of montevideo inside. He can't begin to estimate how long it will take to walk around to the other side and that's only if the valley curbs if it doesn't then they're just walking deeper and deeper into the andes. He thinks about saying something but he doesn't want to alarm roberto in tinton not yet as the afternoon wears on nando feels his body adjusting to the warmer air but then as soon as the sun begins to dip behind the western peaks the temperature plummets. He calls out for roberto in tinton to stop. We better start looking for shelter. There aren't any outcroppings sight. So nando suggests they dig a cave in the snow and only do it quickly before it gets too dark. They don't have a shovel. So all three crouch down and begin scooping away the snow with their bare hands once the whole is deep enough they huddle inside and wrap themselves in makeshift seek cover blankets. But it's almost no help against devastating cold nando new night outdoors in the andes will be brutal gustavo's urbino who nearly died of frostbite. During his scouting expedition warned him. How fast the temperatures plummet. But gustavo had camped at a much higher elevation. Nonoo the valley would be cold after dark but he didn't think it would be that much colder than the fuselage he was wrong after an hour and the snow cave. He certain that the blood will freeze in his veins. He throws his arms around ten ten and hugs him close. Roberto begins to lie in the middle if it's this cold here in the valley nando can't imagine what it might feel like to climb any higher to get out of the andes when you want to find great rates.

He groans and starts marching in place. He nando in tinton spent a hellish night on the mountain with temperatures below zero little by little his joints begin dying. His legs are working again but now he scared that night was more than eight bargained for. He doesn't believe he'll survive another one. He praised there is another one because he knows nando isn't willing to give up he stares down the valley searching for any hint that will curve west. Soon ben nano crawls out of the cave and stands beside him. Shivering roberto points down the valley. You're right ondo. we'll never get to chile this way we need to go back to the fairchild and start over heading west but that isn't what roberto has in mind. We almost died last night climbing a suicide mission instead. Roberto wants to take the batteries from the tail back to the fairchild and fix the plane's radio he feels they a better chance of radioing for help than they do of making it. Out of the andes alive nano disagrees. The radios of pipe dream roberto. It was destroyed in the crash. We've already wasted enough time. We must had west roberto's temper flares. If you wanna kill yourself go ahead. Don't drag me along. Tinton tumbles out of the cave shaking frost from his beard. Roberto shouts to him. He orders ten ten to cast the deciding vote. Do they head west or try to fix the radio. Tinton doesn't hesitate the radio. We'll never make it through another night like that one. Roberto looks at nano who shrugs fine. I'm outnumbered but if the radio doesn't work then. I'm climbing with or without you by noon. They're back at the tail after a quick lunch. Roberto had straight to the overhead bin or the batteries are stored each way as much as a bowling ball. Too heavy to carry all.

"Nano pirata crouches beside his friend arturo nogueira and rubs his chest to keep him warm. Arturo was badly injured when their plane crashed deep in the andes mountains over a month ago and he hasn't made much of a recovery despite nawaz best efforts no real medical attention poor nutrition and freezing cold temperatures. What did not expect in the weeks since they dug out from the avalanche are chiro has grown weaker and thinner at an alarming rate. Nano has agreed to wait to leave on a new expedition until november fifteenth. The day that winter ends in the andes mountains. But he's afraid that arturo won't live that long nanda looks at our turturro's sunken face and frail arms and is so concerned that he offers to give his friend his days. Ration of meat arturo smiles. I'm dying ondo but it's okay. I'm eager to meet. god nando. Is shocked are turow has never believed in god. Nado takes arturo hand and gently reminds him that. He's an atheist arturo grins. I don't believe in the kind of god who forgive sins and part cs. But i believe in something. Nando has always thought of arturo as the philosopher of the group is eager to know what is friend believes in especially now as death approaches. Arturo looks nano straight in the eyes. I believe in love. Love is a force that exists outside of us. We can tap into it. We can let it fill our lives even here on this mountain nada to ask more but he can see that arturo is tiring. He sits with his friend until he falls asleep. That night after the survivors have all gone to bed. Nando here's arturo talking in his sleep nado crawls over to him and puts his hand to his forehead. He's burning up all through the night. Nando sits with his friend as he slips in and out of consciousness in the morning when our turow has been lying still for longer than usual. Nando knows that he's dead. Fernando are zero's death drives home. The idea that who lives and dies isn't a part of god's plan at all it's just arbitrary and cruel. No one was meant to survive the crash. It's simply random. Turturro's death comes at what feels to nando like a tipping point when he looks around as fellow survivors. He is shocked by how thin they have become. Many especially the younger ones walk around with their shoulders stooped there is on the ground like.

"Little chores like organizing the fuselage and airing out the blankets helped to keep everyone feeling is if they have a purpose and a purpose is a drive to survive. All they need to do is hold out until the rescue mission comes marcello glances over to where roberto and gustavo are sleeping. He half expects to find them sick writhing in pain. Who knows why eating human flesh will do to a person but everyone who chose to eat. The meat yesterday is still sleeping or at least trying to wrestle arises from his cushions and shakes the shoulder of roy harley. Get up roy. It's time to set up. The radio marcello has been waking up roy every morning and leading him out into the snowfield together they tune into the transistor radio marcello found in the wreckage. It's not much but with a couple of homemade. Antennas roy is able to hear stationer to through the static. It's only been soccer. Scores and weather report so far. But marcella was praying. They'll hear some news about the search for the old christians. Roy groans and rolls over on the seat cushion. He's been using a pillow. It's too cold it get someone else. It's your job roy. You're the only one who knows how to do it. You're good at it. Come on marcello jumps down out of the fuselage then turns back to make sure roy is following behind him non dough and another player already outside waiting to make the track. The sun is beginning to peek through the clouds and marcelo savors the warmth. He picks up the antenna and walks out to the area a few yards from the plane where they've been able to get the best reception. Finally roy appears carrying the little radio. He sits down and starts fiddling with the dials. Marcello watches as roy scrolls. He doesn't hear anything promising at first but then suddenly rory finds a station and holds the radio close to his ear or selo strains to hear what the radio is picking up but there's so much static he can barely hear a man speaking in blacked business like tone he calls out. Roy what is it. What did he say. Roy looks up and shakes his head marcello conc- he's already crying. They're suspending the search. They're abandoning us. Marcello falls to his knees all he can do is cover his face with his hands and scream his cry. Echoes off the rocks and the other men stay frozen in place this whole time. He's felt so certain that rescuers were on their way and now he knows they're not one of the other boys runs out of the plane towards them. He must have heard marcello screens as soon as he sees their faces. He understands what has happened. Who is going to tell the others. Marcel looks at the silly antennas. He's holding in his hands. How foolish to think that the outside world cared about them he throws them to the ground takes a deep breath. He doesn't want to let the others feel the depths of hopelessness. That are washing over him. I don't think we should tell the others. If we're all going to die. We can at least let them go on hoping till the end. The boy shakes his head. We have to let them out marcello slumps down to the snow. I can't tell them. I can't bear it marcelo. Feels the boy's staring at him for a moment. Then the boy shrugs and turns to nando in the distance another group is headed toward them. Marcello can't even bring himself to stand. He simply looks on nando. In the boy make their way towards the fuselage and other group marcelo's head falls into his hands as he hears them yell up to the plane. They've called off the search marcello. Here's crying the distance and he hears.

"It's late morning on october. Twenty second nineteen seventy-two and nando. Parrado stands outside the fuselage of the crashed fairchild airplane. He's alone examining a chocolate covered peanuts. In the palm of his hand non does been saving it. He puts it in his mouth and sucks off the chocolate and spits the nut back into his palm later he will allow himself a tiny nibble after this. There's nothing left to eat. It's been ten days since nine knows uruguayan. Rugby teams flight crashed here. High in the andes mountains and each day seems to be colder than the last. It's a bone chilling. Cold that cuts to the core nano has been shivering constantly and he knows it's burning calories. He needs to make it out alive as an athlete. He's aware that the body requires massive caloric intake at altitudes like this most. Andy hikers consume up to fifteen thousand calories a day to keep going but nano has eaten almost nothing for a week now. He's starting to feel his body. Take a turn for the worst at the start of this trip. He was in the physical prime of his life but now his body moves like he's aged forty years. It's exhausting to even walk but the truth is he's lucky to be alive a week ago. He was still unconscious from the plane. Crash it's a miracle that his head wound is starting to heal. There was a blizzard earlier this morning but for the moment the sky is clear. Nano is thankful for the small bit of warmth. The sun is providing. He closes his eyes and leans his head back to face the sun. He thinks of his mother who died in the crash. His sister who perished from her injuries only a few days ago. If they died when he was at home he would have been incapacitated with sadness here on the mountain his body knows there is no time for grief so nando simply imagines his mother and sister in the sky watching over him they'll help carry him to safety landscape around him as quiet with his eyes closed. It seems almost peaceful when he opens them he notices that even the steep jagged mountain to the west looks less threatening without dark clouds circling its peak. But he knows it's time to start making plan. nothing can live in such inhospitable conditions. There's not a tree or bush a single blade of grass no life at all only stone an ice. That means they won't be able to find anything to eat up until now non does been afraid to sail loud. What he's thinking but he can't keep silent any longer is going to have to talk to roberto. Nanda looks over at where the passengers who died in the crash lie covered under a thin layer of snow. Their spirits have left their bodies and they've left behind the only sustenance to be found nano certain their only chance at survival is to send a small team through the mountains and down into chile for help and nando plans to lead the team. But he'll never be able to climb through the andes with peanut as his ration he will need to fill himself with protein and fat. He will need to build up his strength. All of the survivors. Well nando knows the choices grim if they want to live the may must eat the dead music.

The Domestication of the Potato

"How many foods that we eat today. All around the world simply didn't exist in the old world of africa asia and europe corn chocolate vanilla peppers green beans pumpkins. Tomatoes and squash are all foods that were completely unknown to the peoples of the old world. Perhaps the most important neural food. However was the humble potato. The potato was originally native to south. America it was first domesticated impro- anywheres from five thousand ten thousand years ago. It's really hard to tell because potatoes aren't very well preserved in the archaeological record. But we know that they were being grown. Probably when studies were first being built in mesopotamia specifically they were probably first domesticated around the area of lake titicaca high in the andes mountains. The first confirmed evidence in the archaeological record comes from the year. Thousand five hundred. You're the coastal city of n con just north of lima peru. The potato was the primary food stuff for the incan empire. Potatoes cooked by ancient peruvians. We're not too dissimilar to how they're cook today. They were baked or boiled and might have been mashed. Potato is pretty much have to be cooked in order for the starches in them to be digestible by humans. Some potato varieties had toxic compounds that required soaking and clay and water to leach out the toxic substances one popular way of processing potatoes in the andes was to make this involved repeatedly leaving them outside to freeze and then thawing them. The next day this freeze drying would go on for three to five nights then they would be laid out and stomped on to remove any remaining water. The result would be white. Rock looking thing not too dissimilar from appealed potato but because it was dehydrated it could last for years. Potatoes had been domesticated all the way down the andes mountains to southern patagonia. In what is today chile prior to the arrival of europeans. The first spanish explorers to the region led by pizarro in fifteen thirty to recognize the value of the potato but when they brought them back to europe it was mostly for consumption by the south american people they brought back with them supposedly and i know this because i actually paid a visit. The first place in europe to grow potatoes was the garden at the monastery in guadalupe spain. It was a place that queen isabella frequently visited.

Noah's drinking habits and intoxication abuse of opium in syria and the century. Bc coca leaves in the andes to chinese cannabis to on and on and on and it was always this mysterious thing to be an addict even up until the nineteen fifties. The general idea of most addiction was in medical communities that it could not be cured if it was treated at all it was by doctors in hospitals and more often than not those suffering from addiction. Eventually were sent to jail until cinnamon though it was not the first rehab or structure around wellness. Synonym did a ton to convince the american public that addicts could be saved. It really started the idea of sponsorship that recovery could happen and that those in recovery could help other people in recovery and while there were good things about sin and on it was founded on the shoulders of charles dietrich and became a cult. Unlike anything else. I had ever seen so it all started with this guy charles dietrich a sales exempt from ohio who moved to so cal after his first divorce after spending almost twenty years as a pneumatic alcoholic he remarried in nineteen fifty six and again at the bequest of his probably very frustrated wife gave a try.

What Separates Peru From the Rest of South America?

"With rick steves with an insider look at how peru stands out from the rest of south america. It's where author and journalist. Marie arana grew up before her bicultural family moved to the us. She writes about her identity in her book. American teacup read. Thanks for joining us. Thank you so much. Rik good to be here. I'm just really excited for you to be my tour guide because is country. I know very little about before we get into this discussion about the people of peru. Just give us a quick one paragraph description of your homeland you know for a country that's the size of roughly the size of california not much bigger. It's an astonishing place because it has just every kind of land form you can imagine. Rick it has the coast it has the desert it has the jungle it has the mountain has the planes. It has all of that and if you fly over peru this is amazing to me you go from one land form to another land form just in the course of a few seconds. It's it's really astonishing place geographically when you compare peru to the other south american countries. How would the people of peru see themselves Compared to the countries that surround them. Well you know we are an andean nation and the andean nations are of course colombia and ecuador and bolivia these are the the spine of the andes of course runs through the whole continent. But we are. We call ourselves and ian people because we are a mix honesty so mix of indigenous and white and black in a very different proportion. Shall we say to. The people of venezuela which are are less india less indigenous more more black and the colombians as well which has a much larger population of blacks than we do improve we do have afro peruvian along the coast who have been there for hundreds and hundreds of years but we are distinguished. I think by our indian ness. And i think that you know the people of argentina. The people of that people are why they come. They come up to peru and they're they're struck by the truly indian culture that we have okay so when you say

"andes" Discussed on Breakfast Leadership

"It's easy for people to hear when we're having a conversation about leadership to think about that must be the person that is leading a group of people so we're talking about leaders and what they need to do with their people and i you know the role that i played over the last five years is is really also not just leading the team but helping other leaders my peers other executives that are above me in the organization. Really think about this. And i'll tell you the reason why the connection piece is really important and i would. I would challenge your leaders. Think about this to your listeners. To think about this which is it's not just about the teenager. Leading is making those connections with others within the organization. Your peers people who your reporting to to make sure that that kind of environment is happening. I was on a call for the memorial day with a ceo company. Night and the first question. I asked him. I said how are you doing like really. How are you doing and you know he shared with me. I haven't i haven't been asked that question recently. And that's part of the reason why i asked. That question of leaders is because. I genuinely want to know how they're doing. Wanna know how i can help support a wanna be able to also get into dialogue with them. Share with how i'm doing to the you get reminded in that instance that tier point. Everyone is going through this. Everyone is a human being having to navigate. This and so part of the connection isn't just about the people that we lead. It's actually taking care of our groups that were already working with. And how are we checking in on other leaders and and i think about this to organizations that might be challenged by this. Which is there might be pockets the organization to your point that are working in a silo. Sh maybe they've been led in a certain way for so long. Maybe you've made some changes to the organization. And the thing that i think is a leader that you're also responsible for is checking in on people you know. How are you making observations. Are you watching. what's happening. You know across the organization not just within your own lane so that you can offer suggestions you can offer support. You can offer a an ear to listen to start to open up that dialogue. I think too many times you have if i've seen it in organizations where people have worked very separately like that..

"I mean i have shared this with many leaders. I remind myself of it all the time. And i know you know this michael published books have been a thought leader. Insured this Cheering anything. you haven't tried yourself right. So i tell people first and foremost i. I think life is one big experiment and if you can think like a scientists have you can think like someone who's experimenting that in another self a lot of those other things that you shared. You're asking for feedback. You're trying something in see if it works that kind of mindset just naturally e is ingrained in your processes you start to fostered environment which people start to operate that way this whole idea of this black and white. I know this thing so if this then that type we don't have that anymore and we're we're in a space now where no one has been through this before. So we're all in this experimenting and learning for the first time together and i think if there's any transition that would couple and partner really nicely with being incredibly connected to your people is starting to model and fostered environment by which people can experiment. We can try things and we could admit if they don't work and we can try this over here and say you know what maybe they didn't feel that great but maybe that's actually part of what this experiment needs to include. I think i mean all the conversations were starting to have whether it be around our organizations whether it be you know about social connections within the community and what our organization is doing to extend beyond that i mean as leaders is not just about what we're doing for the business. It's about what the business is doing for the community that we have to think about. And i don't know any other way to start doing that. Then just starting to open up the dialogue and think about this as an experiment and that nobody has the answer. But that's part of our responsibility is to facilitate the ability to get to the answer not to necessarily just habit and start publishing it everywhere. It's the ca- playground you know. And and just having the freedom and the flexibility to try things i think about it was just recently the Scientists that used to work for three m that was part of the team that came up with the posted. No glue and all of that. That was something that they had created this glue and it wasn't as sticky as they needed it in like. What are we going to do with this stuff and you know they played around with it for years to figure out what they do and then all of a sudden the post knows born and boy did that make three of them some money but again it's it's that giving teams the the permission to play experiment..

Investigations Continue as Questions About the Capitol Riot Remain Unanswered

"There are still a lot of questions about other individuals involved in the attack on the as well as the organization and planning behind it fbi's investigating whether foreign governments groups are individuals may have funded extremists who helped plan and execute the january six attack fbi sources telling nbc news that the bureau is examining payments of five hundred thousand dollars in bitcoin apparently by french national two key figures and groups in the alt-right before the riot kind of weird also know the fbi collected thousands of phone and electronic records connected to people at the scene of the rioting including many records from the members of congress and staff members. Who were there. That day. Senator sheldon whitehouse and several fellow. Democrats have called for senate ethics committee. Look into the behavior of the republican colleagues. Tech josh hawley. In relation to the events of january six and today democratic congressman. Eric swallow of california actually filed a lawsuit. And it's the second lawsuit on this on these actions. This lawsuit accuses former president. Donald trump his son. Donald trump junior republic rudy giuliani republican congressman mo brooks of alabama of violating federal civil rights law and local incitement laws with their speeches at that rally near the white house in the morning of january six lawsuit. Alleges the capital attack was quote a direct and foreseeable consequence the defendants false incendiary allegations of fraud and theft and indirect presponse. The defendants calls for violence. Gerstein is a senior legal affairs reporter at politico where he has been covering the arrest of trump appointing federico klein and he joins me now. Josh i saw this story and obviously this guy was like particularly high up the state department but it i read the story. I thought he had left. He was working there right like until the end of the trump term. That's right chris. I was told. He tendered his resignation on january nineteenth. So that's two weeks after the storming of the capital and it became effective a couple of days later. So i guess he was wandering around at foggy bottom knowing full well that he had taken part as the video appears to depict in this assault on the nation's capital on the congress. Tell us a little more about this individual. So he's forty two years old He served in the marine corps in iraq. According to his mother. I haven't been able to determine much in terms of a work history. He had a couple jobs on capitol hill about fifteen twenty years ago as an intern briefly working for the house. Small business committee but he seems to have sort of potted around to different Different kinds of posts before fetching up at the trump campaign in twenty sixteen. There are pictures on his facebook page showing him a working at trump tower. I believe on election night in two thousand sixteen with a couple of other young men there and then he managed to turn that into a political appointee job at the state department in this special assistant a position. Exactly what he did. There is also a little murky. I have to say. I spoke to a number of people last night. Who worked in this department at the state department office at the state department and a lot of them didn't know him or said they'd only met him briefly he seems to have ended up an office that handled brazilian and what they call the southern cone affairs. I think those are the andes countries and somebody told me he was eventually transferred a believe it or not chris to the freedom of information act office which is not usually the career trajectory. Most people in government are looking for this quote from his mother. Cecelia klein saying that fred's politics burn a little hot. She said i've never known him to violate the law. I believe is. He said he was on the mall that day. I don't have any neural. Ever ask him unless he tells me where where he was after he was on the mall.

Travel to Bogota, Colombia

"I would like to welcome to show a Lauren Pesky from wonder Lulu Dot com, which has way more use in. Lulu than you would expect, check the show notes for how to spell that. Lauren welcome to the show. Hi. Chris thank you so much for having me. I'm really excited to be chatting with you today and were chatting about Bogota Colombia and Lauren. What is your connection to Bogut all? The Age old question I truthfully never had Columbia on my list was really on my radar but love brought me here. My boyfriend moved here five years ago, and so for the past five years I have been visiting on and off and finally kind of made the move down here this year. And you picked a good year to move internationally. I know talk about crazy timing. I finally five years in Ra do this I'm going to get the visa all of that, and then I got here in February and. March the whole country shutdown. Excellent. So we're GonNa talk about the things that you're going to be able to do win it opens backup starting to do now but why should someone go to Columbia specifically Bogota? While let's start with Columbia as a whole is one of my favorite countries I've ever been to and the reason for that many many reasons but I just love how diverse the country as from region to region. So in one country you have the Amazon rainforest, you have the Andes mountains you have desert you have the Pacific Ocean you have the Caribbean it's really just in terms of bio-diversity. It's pretty incredible how many landscapes you can see in One place and beyond that region to region the cultures are so different that people in the language event. I have a friend in get Mungo, which is another major city here who says when she talks to her family on the coast in Bonn Akhir Carthagena sometimes, she doesn't even know they're using a phrase that she's never heard before i. know that's in a lot of places that it's just it makes it a really really interesting place to visit. And what kind of tenor are going to recommend for us? So today, I'm going to be specifically talking about Bogota. I feel like Bogota is the capital city. I know a lot of people fly through here but often I feel like it's an overlooked major major city most people when they think of Columbia, Colombia's really gaining popularity in recent years. The first thing they think of Karma Hannah are medigene and so now that I live year and I've been visiting for so long feel like so many things are overlooked here. So I really kind of want to dive into that and talk about kind of what makes this place special. And we should say up front that Lauren doesn't claim to be native Spanish speaker. Hearsay medigene and you think it should be many Yien or something else. She's still knows better than I knew it. So what do in Boca? I if you don't mind just talking a little bit of language and so far from ever Oh you must be fluent you're visiting so much. But the reality is I'm not in so I kind of have a perspective on what it's like to be here in traveling around when I know very little. Of course, I've gotten better over time but still learning you can I assume you know the essentials like survey support for? That's the first phrase you learn the clerk. Learned one beer please. Exactly exactly. Go back to your your question about, but was how I always to me. It's an eclectic mix of traditional and modern Colombian culture, and I just love how you can kind of go from playing Tejo and eating a maybe another EPA bay case on the street to dancing salsa, and then the next day you're at a fine dining Peruvian fusion restaurant in high in cocktails at a jazz bar and it's Kinda got it. All excellent as long as you're going to promise to explain to me what you were just talking about with. The two things that you're eating and going to somewhere in the course of the conversation. I will. Definitely. To that. So don't don't even worry. What are we going to see in Bogota? Where are we GONNA START? Okay. So I kind of want to break this down is a massive city. It's eight million people. It's a sprawling city. There's so much to do so much to see. So I, kind of want to break it down by by neighborhood because it's so big I feel like it's less of A. Hit these top ten things? Would you see a lot of those lists just great which is fine. But a lot of those lists stay in only one neighborhood. Probably. Heard of it I'm pretty sure you've talked about it before in Candelaria in. So I kind of want to talk about each little neighborhood and kind of what each place bring. So the first place like I was saying is the most popular I would say it's the most heuristic part of the city which you know sometimes I think you hear its touristic which equals bad to some to some but to me candelaria, it's a beautiful part of the city. It's the Old City it's the cobblestone streets and the colonial Spanish architecture, and so I'm going to start there with kind of like day one, right so the reason I start. There is because there is this place in that area of the city that's in the more southern part of the city, not all the way south almost like mid south is monster at day, which is this big beautiful mountain that overlooks the entire city. It's a really great like first thing to do because you really get the lay of the land and see just how massive the city is. You can get up there three ways you can hike up, you can take the there's like a dealer kind of train that goes up and then there's the cable car and the cable car ride up if you're not afraid of heights. Is Beautiful. When you get to the top I mean like I said, you have this beautiful sprawling view of the city and just kind of a little tip even though I do recommend going early on and during the day the careful because on the weekends it is mental. I've seen lines that are probably three maybe more hours. Okay Yes I really recommend if you can go during the week. That's great and then if you kinda wanted using a little different if you go right before the sun is setting, it's like a beautiful beautiful view bogus some pretty gorgeous city sunset. So that's kind of something to keep in ninety.

How To Teach Geography

"Michelle how do you approach geography first of all I teach as a separate subject in the United States at least geography is taught as part of social studies. So it's lumped together with history mostly social studies, history geography and government, and a little bit of economics. That's what social studies is, and it's taught is one subject but I like to separate those things out because I think that geography deserves a lot more time than it is given. Okay. So Michelle explained this. If you're studying. Ancient Egypt for example. How is that different in your mind than studying? Egypt. In geography what's the differentiation? Well, the difference is that history is the study of everything that's come before it's the hugh story of humanity but geography is the story of what is happening. Now, at this moment, what is going on in the world today it is the study of the world that we live in the people we live around the different countries and cultures that we interact with, and is also the study of ourselves today because when you study someone else, it helps you to see yourself more clearly. And you can make comparisons yes between the two. So yeah. Geography is really the now of history and a lot of ways in that it includes you know the physical geography land forms and landscapes and by oems and all that stuff. But I actually think we spend more time focusing on the people of the world and countries and cultures than we do the physical stuff but both are important. Well, often the physical helps shape. The borders, the boundaries exactly, and so they are really interrelated but. It is pretty fascinating when you start to study the people's that currently live in the world around you and you really begin to understand the cultures and the things that make people who they are. So? I think there are four. Big Aspects of geography and lots of I mean. Different people defined geography different ways and the different focuses. But there are four that that I like to focus on in my home school and the first is physical geography. The shapes of coastlines, the the continents, the ocean landforms, Selanne forms, the mountains, the desserts, all that kind of stuff. And climate, and the second thing is a map making Howard maps made and how do you make map and then how do you navigate with the map? Those are all. Part of geography, and then the third one is political geography, which means countries and capitals, roads, populations that kind of stuff, and then the final one is culture. So what is the religion of people? What is what are their holidays like what language do they speak? What kind of clothing do they wear? You know? What is what are their attitudes about family or? Different things like that. That's that's culture. So all those are the four things that really to mirror different of geography that I like to make sure we hit on. When I'm doing our home schooling with the kids. So by the time, your kids graduate. Ideally, what would they know in an overall way? I want them to have a map of the world in their head first of all, and that doesn't mean that they have to know exactly where every single country and capitalists, but they should be very familiar with the whole world. If they hear Judy mentioned in a news article, they shouldn't be wondering where in the heck is that I've never heard of it they should know, oh, that's an Africa, and hopefully they know, oh, that's over on the east coast of Africa. It's interesting as I've traveled a lot. I'll hear people talk about how. Many other people in the world. Know about the United States of America. But Americans. Know very little about most of the other countries in the world it's because our schools do not teach geography and and it's really kind of sad but it's very true but the other countries in the world have so much to offer. Then that's the second thing that I really want my kids to know the map in their head I think is important for context for understanding the world we live in but to understand the people who were in the world is even more important to have this concept of. This person who is from Africa is going to have a completely different world view than I do but that's not bad. It's just different and if I understand that their world worldview is different, I can probably have a better conversation with that person. We can understand each other a lot more clearly than if I'm assuming that they're just like me because people are the same everywhere in the world, but we're also different everywhere in the world. Yeah. Beyond just the country borders and you know that map in their head concept I also want my kids to know other specific parts of the map I want them to know the major desert, the major mountain ranges. Just it feels like part of being educated, right? Wing those here Andes Mountains and not be wondering wait wait Andes Mountains. Is that in Maine. Not Be thinking that you should know it's in south. America. You know I want my kids to be able to picture the world to be familiar with the places of the world, and then also to appreciate the places and people in this world and so that's kind of my goal you know before they graduate they don't have to know every single fact

The history of potatoes

"Like corn and tomatoes, the potato was born in the Americas before it conquered the world, they come from the spine of mountains that run all the way down from from Chile all the way up through the Andes and really into the Rocky Mountains Rebecca Earl is a historian at the University of Warwick where she focuses on the history of food and on the history of Spanish America and potatoes are bang in the middle of her ven diagram potatoes are from the. Andes that much is clear. The earliest wild potato ancestor that's been identified is from the shores of Lake. TITICACA on the Peruvian side but there are a lot of potato varieties claimed by a lot of folks in the region. In fact, there have been some recent disputes between Chile and Peru over attempts by Peru to patent whole variety number of potatoes as being Peruvian and of it and part of our national patrimony. So where they originate doesn't sit so neatly. Onto national frontiers, wild potatoes bread, and down the America's they've even been found in Utah but it wasn't until about eight thousand years ago. The people in the Andes started to domesticate these kind of unpromising marble sized super bitter tubers. Potatoes came to form a really important part of life in the Andes because they can grow an incredibly inhospitable conditions I've traveled in the Andes. In Peru and not only did I get intense altitude sickness but people farming there look like. They're hanging off the side of the mountains the Andes. Are Super Tall and super steep. It's just rough terrain for growing things in the whole of Peru only something like three percent of the land is classified suitable for growing crops compared to twenty one percent of the US but for the potato, no problem at flourishes in those conditions. So yeah, the potato was a big deal in the region, but it was still the food of the people it was essential not special. Unlike the other big American staple corn planting of the maize crop was something that the Inca himself oversaw of the ruler himself planted symbolic wro of as as part of a big ceremony and there was a team priests who would prey over the course of the year to ensure good maize harvest and it was a whole lot of ritual associated with with maize the empire. was not very interested in potatoes. They saw potatoes kind of lowly everyday food that didn't have great spiritual resonance Mrs Going to be a theme with the potato that said on that lowly local level. The potato did have spiritual resonance. It was a day. T called the potato mother who looked over the potato harvest and ensured that it grew well. So it was very important not. Just in terms of Diet. But in terms of kind of ritual spiritual life on village, this was something the Spanish conquistadors picked up on right away when they showed up in the fifteen hundreds. So they said Oh these the people here eat a kind of route, which is the bread of the Indians as they put it they were always comparing it back and forth to. European. Bread they said it is their bread which meant it was the staple. It was the backbone of the Diet that said the Spaniards knew it didn't taste like bread. This is how a Spaniard described the potato. It's the very first written description that survives potatoes are something like Spanish truffles aside from being a bit bigger and not as tasty. They said potatoes, they are a thing. Like chestnut or a bit like a truffle oil parsnips they grow underground there were route and they eat them the way that we parsnips of the way that we eat chestnuts. So they quickly drew connections between. A variety of different things? Some root vegetables like Parsnips, turnips, and somethings like chestnuts that we might not think a potato is exactly like the texture is not on similar. If you bake a chestnut, you end up with something a bit mealy but like a potato Europeans brought this new truffle chestnut food back to Europe with them although we don't know exactly when like many crops that have spread around the world people didn't always record when they first saw it. It seems like the potato landed on the shores of Europe somewhere in. The second half of the fifteen hundreds I to the Canary Islands and then to mainland Spain and from there they spread across Europe and around the world. But in terms of how potatoes caught on, there's an old story that has stuck around for a long time. It's almost become conventional wisdom and it's that the peasants in Europe were pretty reluctant to give potatoes a try the old story is that peasants are inherently conservative and will not do anything new. They will not try unfamiliar cultivation techniques they won't eat new food they're they're basically backward-looking and highly superstitious and regard the novel with skepticism. So there's an old story that says peasants looked at potatoes and they said this food is not in the Bible we will not eat it and they said our grandparents didn't grow this food and we will not grow it added to that. There was the unfortunate fact that the potato is part of. The. Same Botanical family of the deadly nightshade. So that's kind of suspect and the potato doesn't grow from seed like a normal crop instead you so little bits of the potato the ground I mean, why would you trust plant like that? Europeans didn't understand this. They thought it was the food of the devil. There's a whole lot of old writing from decades. By historians who say that, Europeans looked potatoes and when they saw them, they saw something freaky on weird.

High-Elevation Hummingbirds Evolved a Temperature Trick

"A humming birds of your garden, you've no doubt seen it flipped from flower to flower hovering midair as it sips on nectar that activity requires plenty of energy. So hummingbirds need a lot of nectar to feed their hungry metabolism's some of them probably drink two or three times. The Body Mass Index Everyday Andrew McCartney an ornithologist at the University of Pretoria in south. Africa. mckanie and his colleagues have studied hummingbirds extreme. In the Peruvian Andes to survive, they're the tiny birds have developed a few tricks for one their blood cells are unusually efficient at transporting oxygen. It's more difficult to hover in the high altitude thin air, and so the humming birds at the higher elevations much prone to pushing while they feed. So that does seem to be one way in which try and reduce the energy expenditure. Now, Macaque Nana's colleagues have found another energy-saving adaptation. The High Mountain hummingbirds can lower their body temperature by extreme amounts of night going into a state called torpor. tencent appearances, they essentially did they. That's unresponsive. The scientists caught six species of Andy and hummingbirds and monitor their temperatures throughout night and day, and they found that all six species could enter some type torpor. They lower their body temperatures from about one hundred degrees Fahrenheit by day to as low as thirty eight degrees Fahrenheit at night and being essentially conserves energy. The details are in the journal biology letters although some of the birds low body temperatures are on par with those of hibernating mammals. It's important to note that this is not fully fledged hibernation, which is a longer term response. True hibernation has only been documented in one bird so far at least common poor will in the US south. West one of my career goals is to find second harmonizing but in the Andes, he says, it's going to be the first place he looks.

How are they able to live deal such an ordeal and more importantly power they were retain their youthful glow in the air vigour and energy. Even at such an orphanage are all those stories just mitts and rumors are is there some truth to what they're saying today I'm going to attempt to tell you at least one secret that might be key to living longer and I'm going to tell you how you can apply these secrets.

I just don't WanNA create episodes for the sake of it. Which is why I took the time to go inwards, get more clarity and alignment on exactly. I'm here to do and be a sponge and really dive into the stories into the practices dealt out experimented on myself and research all of the stuff that will help you my friend lead a better quality life and I feel that I'm ready to share because I have honestly missed connecting one with you. I do the interviews but this thing that we have here. That especial so I appreciate you listening and I want to do more of this but the question for today's what is the longevity secret of the Himalayan. Yoga. So to attempt to answer this question, let's I stand the a lifestyle. Most of these Yogis were live high up in the mountains inside kids where there was record and with less oxygen at that elevation what would they eat? They would mostly various and fruits and food available out in nature, and they would have bath in the cool cool waters of the rivers Gord explosion, and of course, they will also do. Yoga. And they would also do. Dancing practices to align themselves to purify their energy and to connect with the universe. But have you noticed something about people living high up in the mountains whether it's mountains in Tibet or Himalayas are Switzerland or the Andes? These people they seem happy. This seem youthful they seem radiant. They seem fit. So can there be something about the oxygen. Our lack of oxygen there might be factor in this three words action tribe brief. Intermittent hype boxer I'm going to explain more but hold onto these words. Brief intermittent hypoc show you somewhere in the nineteen thirties. Russian scientists discovered that when you reduce the desired level of oxygen in your blood for a brief period of time that are many positive outcomes outcome such as increased level of haemoglobin production. Production of nitric oxide, which defends the body and especially the tissues against oxidative damage and prevents erectile dysfunction in men, and also another benefit is the increase assocation of stem cells which have the unique capacity to differentiate into worship. Any kind of cell in your body, which has major implications for healing and longevity. So these Russian scientists discover amazing benefits of brief intimate hype box. Here I know it's a lawful, but they were busy trying to replicate this in their elite athletes and perform us, and they will literally Dick these high-performance athletes on helicopters to high altitudes where there is less oxygen they created these hypo Barak.

How Long Can Andean Condors Fly Without Flapping Their Wings

"Imagine your average three-year-old human child something around three feet or a meter tall probably covered in jam a now imagine that child trying to get off the ground with a pair of wings bid have to be pretty big wings. Welcome to the plight of the Indian condor species name Volt Hor griffiths the heaviest flying bird in the world. Weighing in at up to thirty three pounds or fifteen kilos, they keep their heavy bodies in the air with some of the longest wings in the world there wingspan can range over ten feet long that's over three meters. There are only a handful of birds carnally living on our planet have larger wings spans, and they're all pelagics, birds, a plastic birds being seabirds that soar over the open ocean for weeks at a time, such as fast petrels and sheer waters. As far as we know, the largest brand ever fly was the Pella. Gorna Sanders C., which lived twenty five to twenty, eight million years ago and was twice as large as the biggest bird living today with a wingspan of twenty four feet over seven meters. Seabirds can accomplish this. Thanks in part to the literally uplifting winds that flow over oceans the Indian condor. Mostly relies on updrafts high in the Andes mountains across much of Western, south. America. The problem with being such a huge bird is that it makes getting off the ground or even flapping those giant wings and flight a bit of an ordeal. Soaring is easy once they're up in the sky and that's mainly what Andean condors do they just float like hang gliders in the air currents sometimes serving the ground for dead animals to eat as a scavenger and sometimes just having an APP. But this means that taking off is the most costly part of the birds overall energy supply. Scientists have always known that they spend very little time flapping their wings but a study published in July of twenty. Twenty and the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found the Andean condors flap, their wings, a sum total of almost never. Not, only to the researchers find colossal birds, flap their wings one percent of their total flight time they discovered a bird could fly for five hours and more than one hundred miles or one hundred, fifty kilometers without flapping them once. The research team found that weather didn't affect how much flapping the condors were doing. Study Co author Hannah Williams a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Animal Behavior said in a press release. This suggests that decisions about when and where to land are crucial as not only do condor's need to be able to take off again but unnecessary landings will add significantly to their overall flight costs. All of which means that in Congress must understand how to use thermals, thermals being invisible patterns and bubbles of air moving all around in the atmosphere to their advantage, and they must understand this much better than scientists previously gave them credit for.

From, Turks and Caicos Islands analysis of Ano- lizards collected before and after hurricanes, Irma and Maria in twenty seventeen and eighteen months later revealed that the surviving lizards and their descendants had larger and therefore grippier Topaz. The team examined Lizard photographs from natural history collections and seventy years of hurricane data to confirm the trend. From Italy sediment samples drawn from the tree and see revealed hotspots with up to one point nine million micro plastic particles per square meter, the highest concentration ever recorded on the sea floor. Most of pollution comes from wastewater and sewage systems. Researchers say. From Antarctica, paleontologists found a fossilized forty million year old frog on Seymour. Near the tip of the peninsula, The FROG is related to modern ones living in temperate humid conditions in the Chilean Andes. From Iraq researchers probing the Turkish State Archives found the earliest known record of a meteorite causing a death. The object struck a hilltop in neighboring Iraq in eighteen, eighty, eight, killing one man and paralyzing another. From Japan results gathered from the KAMIOKA. Observatory which includes an underground detector tank filled with fifty five thousand tons of water, suggested intriguing discrepancy in how neutrinos, an anti neutrinos oscillate potentially violating symmetry between matter and antimatter.

These maps can be found in secret texts, holy images, prayers and poems from saints, and Yogis who have traversed the rocky train of spiritual people and transformation. The maps point us in the direction of our own spiritual truths for tumors bathed in clarity, strength and empathy. I'm Matteo donal hosted they. Hey, how's meditations? PODCAST and I'm happy to welcome on today's show Marcel Lobos to discuss one of these ancient maps procedures like you and me and that map is the medicine wheel? Marcel has been initiated in the healing and spiritual traditions of the Amazon and the Andes. For many decades I spoke to her while I was visiting her retreat center in the mountains of Chile just before the pandemic his around the world. Martinez senior teacher, the four win society, and is married to its founder Dr L. Deauville do. On today, show Marcella speaks about her own healing journey, and how she's applied the ancient methods of healing found in the medicine wheel. She then takes us on a journey in the podcast around the four directions of the medicine wheel where we talk about the healing archetypes that we work with including the serpent, Jaguar hummingbird and condor. The result of the journey through the medicine wheel is to emerge a luminous warrior with clear discernment, an unbound energy to be of service to others. Let's get right to my conversation with Marcella. So. It's great to welcome Marcella logos onto the house meditation podcast today we're recording down here. In the amazing sort of Sacred Valley of in Los Lobos in Chile so welcome on the PODCAST Marcella tank, Kim materials and honor to be with you, and to be with all our listeners on very excited to share anything that can be of help. Today I have a feeling. It's going to be a good journey. Loved tourneys. Before. We Speak About meditation practice and your meditation practice in about this. Your unique as I understand it contemporary practice that derives out of Shamanism I just wanted to ask you about how your spiritual practice started in your life. I feel it started with being raised by parents that gave me a lot of space to daydream. My House My parents were atheist. So, nothing was imposed to me. Though I grew up in a Catholic Very Catholic county went to Catholic school, but my parents really understood my inner freedom, and they let me not go to. My religious classes day they gave me they spoke with the teachers and say they. Want to do it. They led me to really explore my own. Spirituality my own connection to nature to dreams, because since I was a little girl, had a lot of vivid, dreaming on my parents recognized that today they were really free spirited in that way, and I think that's foundation, and it was here that you grew up in Chile yes. I grew up in China and funny enough I did explore a lot of religious settings because. I didn't go to religious class I. Dig grew up among Catholics season so I ended up learning. Then my aunt, one of my aunts was one of the heads of the witnesses of Jehovah. Jehovah witnesses. Okay, thank you and so I learn a lot of The Bible stories with her. Though whenever I went to my grandmother, she would say no. No, my darling, she says telling you stories that. That people believe but really what happened the UFO's game and gave the tablets to Moses and everything. My. Grandma everything she. That her little sister. Explain to me from the Bible. My grandmother would turn it into a UFO story. And why was that with the UFO story? Sorry, because my grandma was said to rebel on her husband was a doctor and she wouldn't go to. Hospital or medical setting, she only took homeopathy. My best friend was Mormon. Say went to more among tour too many times. You haven't many different kinds of influences.

And people nowadays feel like they have to entertain their children non stop and they they cannot stand seeing their kids who, in nothing by my mother also led me to be, and and wouldn't finance attention, so I got bored a lot of many times and I would think even depressed.
