Why Investigating 2020 Voter Fraud Is About Saving Our Country

"And Mike, again, help my audience understand. You have led the charge in trying to bring a case to the Supreme Court. That would be signed by attorneys general from states around the country, what is the crux of this case that you're bringing? In other words, what is the crux of the case that you're hoping that the Supreme Court will look at? Okay, I would rather I'm not a lawyer. I would rather that everybody go to Frank speech dot com. You can view the whole case there. But it's stiff. There's a couple of things. If to explain it, there's 5 states that are getting that are definitely defendants. And that's your Wisconsin, Pennsylvania. Michigan, Arizona, and Georgia. And now all the states have standing. The evidence that's there now is not the evidence that was brought before them back last year. And last year when they said they didn't have standing, now they have standards, not one but two ways. They absolutely help with how to accept it on standing because every state's got standing. The attorneys generals know Anita I need everyone to know this. We brought the case other lawyers who grew up this case that we brought into these different attorneys general. We met with them. We showed them show them that the election fraud happened in their state, Eric. I bought their voter rolls. An Alabama had to pay 30 some $1000 out of my pocket to buy the voter rolls who bought who voted and then the voter rolls after. So then we went in. We canvass. We showed him it happened in their state. I'll give you an example, Alabama. We show it happen there. And I said, you guys need to look at this complaint. And get on board with us. We need to protect our country. This is about who are a Democrat or Republican thing. This is about saving our

How Playing an Instrument Benefits Your Brain

"Did you know that every time musicians pick up their instruments. There are fireworks going off all over their brain on the outside. They may look calm and focused reading the music and making the precise and practice movement's required but inside their brains. There's a party going on. How do we know this well in the last few decades neuro scientists have made enormous breakthroughs in understanding how our brains work by monitoring them in real time with instruments like fm r. I n. p. e. t. skinner's when people are hooked up to these machines tasks such as reading or doing math problems each have corresponding areas of the brain where activity can be observed but when researchers got the participants to listen to music they saw fireworks multiple areas of their brains for lighting up at once as they process. The sound took it apart to understand elements like melody and rhythm and then put it all back together into unified musical experience and our brains. Do all this work in the split-second between when we i hear the music and when our foot starts to tap along but when scientists turned from observing the brains of music listeners to those of musicians the little backyard fireworks became jubilee. It turns out that while listening to music engages the brain in some pretty interesting activities. Playing music is the brain's equivalent of a full body workout. The neuroscientists on multiple areas of the brain light up simultaneously processing different information in intricate interrelated. An astonishingly fast sequences. But what is it about. Making music that sets the brain alight. The research is still fairly new but neuroscientists have a pretty good idea. Playing a musical instrument engages practically every area of the brain at once especially the visual auditory and motor courtesies and as with any other workout disciplined structured. Practice in playing music strengthens those brain functions allowing us to apply that strength to other

The book that i put him on the map was nineteen seventy. four's carry which would also become his first novel to be adapted into a film. Cinematic adaptations of kings works are hit or miss to put it mildly but few have had the cultural significance and staying power of carey directed by brian depalma. One of the most significant american directors of the late twentieth century and also kind of sexist. The comedy stay tuned. Anita y'all i just read this shit. I didn't write it.

When i worked as a rickshaw driver and the whole family lived in a tin roof shack but they had a dream. Tim hoffa talks about this in his cautionary tales. Podcast and that dream is that they'll win a very unusual lottery. The lottery is called number fever in the lottery. Numbers are printed on the inside of bottle tops on bottles of pepsi. They sat down every night to wash numbers drawn on tv. If the number from your bottle top was drawn in one grand prize you could win a million pesos. That's equivalent to about forty thousand american dollars. That is a lot of money in the philippines in one thousand nine hundred to a life changing amount of money for victoria and anita if they were ever to win it but of course. It's just that one grand prize. What are the chances they would ever win. What was the number. The number was three four nine one evening. They are watching the television and the lottery. Juries held on the number comes up and it's three four nine. They can't believe it. Got forty thousand dollars a million pesos. They the children can go to college. Anita doesn't have to work as a rickshaw driver any more it would be like winning a million dollars in the us. Today but pepsi messed up and eight hundred thousand bottletops printed with the winning number three four nine so for victoria and horta the way i imagine. This is the run out onto the streets to celebrate and everybody else is on the streets and they're celebrating too because they all have the number three four nine on their bottle tops. So they're all going to be millionaires. Yeah well you'd think pepsi was on the hook for at least fifteen billion dollars

He would have to deal with the magic in the stretch. Terry wallace brings them home. Describe magic magic comes back. Takes at the magic of turn upset. Rhinestone was only eaten the neck that day but he would be heading to the kentucky derby with a lot of questions surrounding for one thing. Rhinestone had only made five career starts. No horse had won the kentucky. Derby on five starts or less since brokers tip in nineteen thirty-three for another. He wasn't even necessarily the best in these trainers d wayne.

Open Water Swimming with Simon Murie

"Salmon. Really good to have you on the podcast list of all. Tell us how open water swimming began for you. Yes a my mouth. Was i High beau daiva sermon. Her as i was a kid used to cheese tightly diving my father was. He was a surf lifeguard from sydney and the night by came over here to the uk so he had a love of open water swimming and then my mammals. I love swimming in the thames. Eat so although the diving didn't work on may cheese. She posted with take me down the thames muslim holidays in our members sitting on the banks of the thames she'd have a radio times manip- picnic blanket and the radio radio full blasting all day. Sit next still with a couple of comex and would sort of sit there and go swimming in in the thames. Every sort of our next to the fishermen and this was in the nineteen seventies early nineteen eighty s when open water. Swimming was definitely not the sole the trendy thing it is now anyway. Something obviously sold of rubbed off there. So let's say it's down to both my mom and my dad that a soda had they sold of facination and interesting in open water swimming and i think the first significant swim that got my interest was the heliport in turkey which was made famous by lord byron swimming across it who actually swam it in honor of leandra who in greek mythology would swim across the halas bonds with laba hero hero on the european side at a cost of sesto us and she would hold out a torch which would then leander who was on the asian side in a causal obidos with swim across she would hold out the torch they would do their thing and then he later. That would swim back and then one night storm blew and heroes. Torch was extinguished and leander lost. His way and was drowned is body washed up underneath. Assess council and hero seeing his body through us. Help off the call cell and died alongside lander and that was the tragic love story of heroes leander and byron's recreated that swim and with a lieutenant colonel and head was the first person to swim the allison and i remember reading a poem. The byron did and also mining engineer at the time in northern nigeria on the border with nigeria and was remember reading a schoolboy but then i remember being up in this And a long way from any water and thinking was my passion in life really enjoy doing and our member. I loved swimming. And i always enjoy finding most bizarre places to swim and i remember reading that poem from byron and thinking you know what when i turned thirty. That's what i'm gonna do. And so when i did tend to that. That's what i did a win over to northwestern turkey and went to the town of genetically and managed to find pilots and get various permissions anita day military commission because the halas is also known as the dardanelles famous military campaign in world war. One and it's straight across from gallipoli. I needed military permission from the army but also the navy and also permission from the coast guard and the town council. It took me a week to get the permission and find the piler and about just over now to swim it so that token balance of time with hassle and everything and made me think there must be other people out there who want to do these fantastic swims around the world. But don't wanna deal the admin. Don't wanna deal the organization and safety support not was all so that was my love of of motor swimming blossom then but also the idea behind what i do today which swimming track which is taking allowing these fantastic swim. So that's where the idea came from far across a telephone digit. How how many well the nearest point. It's it's just kilometer across from europe to asia but if you're headed out from those castles kill it. The here is one of the council's as which was i- falsify during the dolphin those campaign in world war one. You started out from there. You would quickly be washed out into the mediterranean. So you've got to start off a lot higher up to start off at the town of bat and get pushed down as you swim across. You've moved down with a current toward the mediterranean but also towards the ancient city of troy. And you end up naeway. Troy is and you get washed down so you in effect. You're probably swimming three and a half kilometers but the journey you've got one is about five kilometers per year. Probably doing an effective swim of three and a half kilometers across you to judge a lot of boats and things like that on the way. Well funnily enough the day. I did it back in two thousand a managed to find his pilots and get the commissions and stuff but the pilot doors did site me. You might have the permissions but we still going to be going off at four o'clock in the morning when the coast guard. Don't start. They shifted six so we started very early in the morning and literally i remember waiting off the coast and the pilot just waiting there as quickly looked up and down the hellas. Ponto about anals to see if there's a break in the traffic and when there was a break in the traffic he gave me the signal as all standing on the shoal and basically told me to swim swim. It's a very busy botero. This is the same traffic that goes towards crimea and into the black sea and he stumble says all those boats. They're going through this very narrow waterway. So yes we had to get a move on when we saw break in the traffic having having done this you then. There are other people out there who would like to do this without the hospital organization. So that's really how swim track begun it. Yes i think so. And i i was passionate about going to play season. Sorta discovering them by swimming. I think what i loved also was this idea of arriving at a landmass under your own steam and looking back and seeing wave arrived from so to speak. I think arriving somewhere. And you've powered yourself. There makes you appreciate somewhere in a way. The somebody say who's arrived by ferry or by bokang possibly do it similar to say hiking up snowdon. Those who've hiked up snowden and those who arrived on the train i think appreciate the summit into totally different ways and i think the same is when you swim from ireland's weiland immersed yourself in the medium of getting there. I think you appreciate way. You've arrived so much more than if you'd sort of got there by plane all binds terry and that's where i get my pleasure out soul and i think people who join us also get not sorta pleasure

"anita durst" Discussed on Talk 1260 KTRC

"I'm your host, Jennifer Viola, and I'm really pleased to be welcoming the folks from vital space is we have a Hana Yo Holim, Who's the program director and Chalk and Boyd, the executive director. Welcome Thank you. So bios. Bases is a fairly new organization. You can tell us a little bit about how you all started the organization you your mission is to sustain and enhance Santa Fe DS cultural vibrancy by creating affordable spaces, artists working in all kinds of media. And so, Jonathan, How did the organization come to be? Sure I a long time ago, had a background, doing some real estate investment and then became a furniture maker and my experience as a sort of coming on to the scene and being a furniture maker and realizing how accessible downtown in market sort of spaces downtown are too young and upstart businesses and arts really made me aware of that. And that just post with all the vacancies that I constantly saw, rotating through a downtown This as 90 years. Well, we are in arts destination. Why isn't something taking advantage of these vacant spaces and bringing the sort of young and vibrant energy that Santa Fe wants to show its tourists to our city and that sort of seed that started and grew over time and Through talking to clients through talking to other organizations on the big steps that the problem at the trajectory of vital spaces took was connecting with Anita Durst, who runs an organization in New York that is basically Our model. I mean, she has been doing it for 25 years and she's flown out here and I threw out there. We used her model of engaging with temporarily spaces to create studios, and she helped us really get moving quickly. Yeah. So you do do you to create studios as well as exhibition spaces? It certainly started in my mind as more of an exhibition space because that's where I was in my thinking, But as soon as we got our first building on Otero Street The immediate need from the community Wass studio space, and I was envisioning this large exhibition space for artist showing their work and everybody just said, We don't have a space to create our work. We need a space tow have studios and so the project Being young and nimble, quickly responded to that and shifted our focus to creating mostly affordable studios. Well right now, that has to be really important for folks because I mean things have there were empty spaces before the pandemic. I can only imagine What is going Tio continue to be like during this, You know, really rough period of time. So it's a great thing that you all are doing. How many different exhibitions have you have handed her? The program director? Tell us a little bit a little bit about your role in the organization. Yeah, I came on in October, so I haven't been with the organization too long. But my role as weapons and weeds have been adapting to what's needed. So the switch from exhibition to studio. I think Jonathan then hopes that artists would just use the space and do their own work. We're realizing that we needed more. Public facing projects as well. So I helped organize exhibitions and workshops and events. And so we've had. We have Ah. When we could we usedto have opened studios. A number of one person shows in a storefront on state makes Andi We have multiple exhibitions planned, but of course, are waiting until we're allowed to be open. The windows on the future, which we get to shortly but is exhibitions installations in Windows across Albuquerque, Santa Fe and House in partnership with the physio project and by 16 arts, and that was a way to get Old money out to the artistic community because we're paying artist a statement for these installations and to also get work out invisible while our exhibition spaces are closed. Well, it's that's why I ended up calling you. Well. I saw one of the installations that is on Yana Street. And it's Janet both knees and use their name. Yeah, and that was just so incredible to see. And she has thes mannequins is sort of like a mix of Passion and color as well as they're all wearing masks. And you know, the kids have masks on that. Even the dog has a mask on and I thought that was really interesting. And so that's part of a larger exhibition that you're doing right? Yeah, So, Yeah, that's a great one. It's really the tongue in cheek. Her idea was that high fashion would quickly catch up with a future in which case we have to wear, not just masks that has not suits right. And so it looks light hearted but also fairly post about electric. And then that's one. Uh, 20 Windows today, So that's a lot of windows. So are they. Is there an official opening for Windows on the future? I mean, official opening date. It opened July 1st. Okay. So is open on and the windows will be open through at least a month of July. It depends on the spaces were hoping some of them can stay open after that. Right Mass on our Web site at vital spaces dot order that list all of the installations and have addresses so you could go find the great, That's great. So if you're just.
