"Welcome to mysteries from around the world stories are strange and unexplained people, places and events often forgotten by history and lost in the mist of time. I'm your host Kit Chrome today elongated skulls. We'll start with the C note. This is a natural pit or sinkhole resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath and the Yucatan Maya Area Mexico. They were often used to make sacrificial offerings of different kinds. The. Name comes from the native Mayan word or term signup. which refers to place that has accessible groundwater. In the Yucatan, there are at least six thousand see notes and the water is often crystal clear as share sources rainwater the slowly percolates through limestone removing any particles. The Yucatan area has very few rivers and lakes and they tend to be marshy. Thus, c-notes were vital as water supply for the my people. Enter elongated skulls. Human skeletons have been found in the bottom of c-notes such as the elongated skull. One skeleton was amazingly radiocarbon dated as being thirteen, thousand, six, hundred years old. Other items, gold ceremonial objects, and other human skeletons with elongated skulls have been found early in the twentieth century. But along gated skulls have been found across Europe. The easy explanation is that the head of the newborn is bound in such a way that the skull becomes elongated I use the word easy because the growth of a newborn skull ends after about four months, subtle shaping can occur until the age of twenty but that wouldn't be enough to create the elongated skulls that have been found. Then there are the Perez skulls. The Perez skulls are massive collection of ancient elongated skulls discovered on Peru's south coast. Peruvian archaeologist made the discovery in one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, eight when he recovered more than three hundred along gated skulls from the. Desert Peninsula while elongated skulls are not a new phenomenon. The Protocols Skulls are particularly curious for three reasons. They are the largest elongated skulls found anywhere on earth they contain mysterious bone DNA. They are structurally different from other long gated human skulls have been found. The common explanation is one an infamous born their skull is placed between boards in such a way that it can only grow out in Annalong gated manner as I've mentioned, the rapid growth of the human skull stops at about four months. However, the Perez skulls are distinct from those found in other cultures because of their structure and their genetic makeup. DNA tests show the skulls contain a foreign never before seen genetic mutation. Is it possible? This mutation causes calls to Elongate. Perhaps it is the same genetic mutation that cost the hair color of the para cost people to mutate as well. Some of the discovered para costs Kohl's have red or blonde hair, which has no explanation other than genetics in addition to the unknown DNA the skulls have another curious feature that supports that theory that they are not fully human the location of the form and Magnum or the hole in the skull that the spinal cord passes through according to one researcher, the forum and Magnum on the. Perez, skulls is located on a spot that's lower than where it should be while many assumed this to be a side effect of head binding. This is misleading head binding and similar practices only change the shape of the skull. They do not alter other aspects of the skull structure. The Pharaon Magnum isn't the only structural feature that stands out on the skulls. The costs skulls are also twenty five percent larger and sixty percent heavier than typical human skulls, and they contain only one parietal plate instead of to. Clearly, there's some distinct structural differences make the paragon skulls. A curious anomaly are the elongated skulls found in Germany, and Belgium and across South American countries of Ecuador Chile, Bolivia, and Argentina an imitation of the three hundred pair of skulls found in Peru. South coast. who were these people and why would anyone want to imitate them along gated skulls was researched and written by our team urban legend writers and produced here the night owl sound studio. Now, the last chapter of the witch hunter I made my way back to police one and walked into the station minutes before McGee and Clark, and he sounded Lee Clark said, the station was nearly empty nearly every officer responding to the attack on Kelly Chapman none McGee led the way to his office I. Think we were hoping that he'd be there waiting for us but not in a way we could have imagined as soon as micky opened the door, he stopped Clark crowded him that I pushed back both of them into the room. Was City behind the desk and the captain's chair with his back to US something was wrong I ran around and was staggered by what I saw. He was pierced through the chest pinned to the chair with his sword. No Blood. But cut into his naked chest where the words could try. Clark close the door and vomited into the trash can begin to help me remove the sword and Easley's body to the floor. He stepped back lid the cords and his next stood out like so many cables Clark walked over like a Zombie and picked up lease sword teach him how to use this. I gently the sword from her grip. Magee stepped up and wrapped an arm around her shoulder. If it's war. They want. I'm ready I reached over and touched him on the arm. Let's move the body before everyone returns. For hours later, the three of sad and Clark's living room. We Sat in silence shock the loss of Lee. There is nothing to say each of US felt guilty McGee for not calling child protective services. Clark for including him in her plan and for me I failed as a sense say teacher I should have seen the risk and centrally away to a friend's any place that was safe. We'd stopped Kelly Chapman. But none of us felt like celebrating finally Clark got up off the couch and turned on the television she's stabbed a newspaper. Now lay open on the coffee table. The television was turned to a local Salem new station, the press both. And newspaper announced that Kelly Chapman had been whisked away by security to a secure location police. One had issued a press release stating that a certain white supremacist group had claimed responsibility for the smoke bombs and they were being apprehended McGee turned off the television after just one version of what had happened and sat back down on the couch poured himself another blasts of Jack Daniels where from here. Clark folded arms cure up for the witches next attempt to put someone else in office. I. Guess I don't know I said I think they'll try to get rid of the resistance that would be us At least before they began begins shook his head at, which was what was her name Carina wanted us to stop the young witches. either. If you have any idea what she had in mind I'm sure it wasn't just a matter of stopping Chapman. My sense is that it was something bigger. She mentioned a movement is important that we protected the state capital but I, think you're right. There's something bigger looming. Out of my head in agreement with McGee. Yeah. But. Where would a bunch of Hungary which is refusal remember that to retain their youthful appearance which enables them to blend in they would need a constant supply of Chee. I looked over a Clark who had pressed a hand over mouth. My God prostitutes had Portland is run over with them. I hope you've enjoyed the witch hunter. Monday Wednesday and Friday we'll have a new mystery starting this Friday right after mysteries from around the world I'm your host. Kit crumb. Thanks for listening.

I think you'll also really like our show each episode. I sit down with women who've come in with a question or a problem And we work on it together. We explore issues like guilt and burnout adoption and fertility career aspirations and disappointments. This and I'm so excited to share an episode from the new season of motherhood sessions. It's about a woman who grew up in a low income neighborhood and is now raising her daughter under much more privileged circumstances. She's worried about spoiling her daughter and trying to learn how to teach your do appreciate all that she has so. If you like this episode you can hear every episode of Motherhood Sessions for free on spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. I learned the value of hard work very early. On from the people around me. I grew up in a low income country country and and like you know things were never handed to us or to me or to my family or whatever like you had to work hard for them and to me. That's how it should be raising my little one in the US. I think I worry that She may not know her like she may not understand her own privilege. We arrived in this country with a hundred in one dollars and sixty seven cents. I have a master's degree and two bachelor's degree we own a home. We have a car. I mean I have a phone you know. We have a laptop at home. But that's not like it's an. I'm not trying to be funny but like it's a big deal and in my head I'm like I am so grateful and therefore I want to be able to have that be passed on. Yeah and it's nothing to do with her. She doesn't know when you're at. It isn't nothing to she's the sweetest. She is so sweet. He's loving and cuddly and so sweet but at the same time I you know I want her to be able to. Yeah no that there are people that that go without a lake. will she be generous while she kind while she was. She could human being if she ends up not being as appreciative or great faller maybe understanding her privileged alleged. Maybe I failed we. I didn't do my job in helping her get there. This is motherhood sessions. I'm Dr Alexandra Sacks. Today I'm talking with the woman were calling d. She lives in a quiet suburb of Washington. DC with her husband and two year old daughter. Dis Family is originally from India but she grew up in Kenya then at the age of nineteen she immigrated to the US with her family. They were seeking asylum after racially motivated. Violence flared up in their hometown down now twenty years later D.. His built a life of safety and stability but she's unsure of how to raise a daughter in such a different environment than the one she grew up in. I think my childhood was a mixed bag. How so so we lived In a coastal town. It's like a tiny island. The size of Key West is what I tell people. It's small we. It wasn't a super rich neighborhood. It wasn't like it wasn't I think it was like middle middle of the road by Kenyan standards It wasn't like high end but it wasn't complete like poverty But it is he's just very Idyllic Angelic you say in Yeah Very Lake laid back coastal type environment There was there. Was this building across from us. That was perpetually under construction. Kept joking owner kept running out of money after like one little little brick was being put on so there was always like construction site that gave us lots of fodder to do nefarious activities. But then at the age of fourteen May Dad died and I had to grow up very fast. How did Your Dad die here? I am sorry he had a heart attack. Yeah My d do you remember that day. Yeah he she had the my right in front of me My mom actually wasn't at home and I was sitting out sitting in the living room. Do My homework and he came the home and he just sort of like clutched his chest and like had trouble walking. And I didn't in my head I was like I don't know what's happening. Exciting to get help and he was his big band or he was mad six foot. You know I don't know to fifty pounds or something like that so little me. I wasn't going to be able to hold come up so called for my neighbors and said Hey I need I need help. You know that he's not doing well. Can you please come help. Blake look up like what's happening and that we need to call my mom like we. I think we need to take him to the hospital now. You must have been so scared. I was I just. I just wanted my mom there I was like. I don't know what I'm doing uh-huh and I don't know if anything that I'm doing is helping so I think I like. By the time my mom came home. The neighbors were already taking him Down and so then she went off to the hospital and I think he was pronounced dead upon arrival. We'll be worked on him or what they did to work. Come up It wasn't until very late that night. That like my mom came home and I just knew make. No one ever told me that my dad passed away I just knew And then in my culture the firstborn child actually the first born son takes on one like a bunch of responsibility as far as like things that need to be done for the funeral and and often the daughter doesn't get like much you know the boy child is given a little bit more sort of status or whatever but my mom my mom and sister. She's like she is my firstborn son. She should be there. She should be there so I got into only two. It's just you and your sister. Yeah and she is. She kept saying it she was like she is my firstborn son that like this all of a sudden like Oh aw I am her first son so I guess you describe this as being a time Roy. Feel like your childhood hood. Kind of the the innocence of your childhood ended. I think at the age of fourteen. I just knew all of a sudden I didn't I couldn't be a child and that I had to. I had to help my mom and you know she. She bless her heart. She's like an amazing mother. She worked so hard to sort of helped me and my sister Get through life but it was just very real to me that I just couldn't be this carefree kid Really had to figure out my life and I had a a little sister that that also dependent on me And so but I just feel like I took on a parenting role very very early and then we moved My mom she in her mind she was like okay. I have two girls I have to figure out how to get them situated in life and how to to sort of lake get us away From from where we were because increasingly like from a safety perspective It was part Away from a safety fifty perspective like just like the age that we were we had heard a lot of girls getting being raped and That belong to our skin color and all of that In your home in our town there have been there had been a tax on young girls. Yes we actually new family friends. Whose little girl was you know kidnapped and taken away and it was just horrible horrible stuff off? You just don't want anybody to think about kind of thing and so I think that she in her mind was like I gotta protect my girls and it was gas. Yeah system systematically happening to people at least at that time people who were Indian and they were living in Kenya and historically. There's there has been tension in Kenya Amongst folks of Indian background who've been living there for a while there's tension between the Kenyans who were black and the Kenyans who are Indian yes there. There was racism between those two groups. I think so. Actually I know so. When Kenya was was colonized by the British they basically made Indians the lake perhaps the civil servants servants in the government or they gave them different positions of power? So I think that with that legacy I think that that that then has manifested in today. This a sense of like well. These foreigners have taken resources from US and now they're they're really well off and they're able to own you you know whatever bland or businesses homes at here. There's did it over and as I think so. Yeah I don't think people were very nice like two to black people either I saw some things that I'm just like this. You're you're not being very you're not treating people respect you know there's just this like there's a real division from your experience before your dad died before you were fourteen where you had a a real sense of harmony and safety in your neighborhood. Yeah I now is. You're talking to me. I'm realizing part of. It is probably also that the the Carton was lifted after my dad passed away and therefore I was exposed to perhaps more adult conversations may be I was exposed to a a bit more responsibility and all of that. I had to like maybe shift my my mind yet to think another different way existed me. My parents were always worried. Who knows wrong and so and so you moved you you you move because there was crime in your town that you are more aware of after you were fourteen and your mom was increasingly concerned about? I think that's I think that's it anything that she fell the because she was now solely responsible that this was it's all on her and that she felt probably you know she just couldn't they physically What's the word like she couldn't physically control things? Yeah and so if things would happen. She's like well I don't I don't have a I don't know for lack of a better word. CONSOL religion out of the foot. Tall Ma'am yes just like. I don't have a man by my side to like fight over the bad guys like this is probably what she was thinking. there's A. Yeah and then things that happen that Layton. I think that just made it harder. The just get got the urgency urgency for her to be like. We need to just leave. This is not good. I just don't see a good way and so I think you're you're worried about your daughter missing something because she's growing up in Washington. DC In and it was something you got that that seems important to you or something. You're proud of about that informs your identity in a very clear way. Yeah so I think the the the I ten to live in like night tend to live in like there's the ideals then that I see and I want to strive for those ideals But then I also realistically I know she's not going to have the same exact childhood like she's not right. It's not reality but in my brain but I want her to have this piece and this piece in this piece from your past from my past What are you what are you worried? Your daughter is missing by by growing up in the US. I worry that she won't know her roots to some degree. And that the that Matt that might lend itself to do not being grateful and appreciative of what she does have and I don't want her to lake. I don't WanNa specifically deprive her just so she can understand. That's not my thing either but at the same time I like it was hard for me to register for things for Our baby shower. I kept getting told by my friends and people that were hosting there. Were like you need to put more on here and like but that's enough like would much. Does she need. No people. WanNa Lake. Bless you they WANNA give and I'm like but she does. I need eight million stuff toys and not that we registered for that but she let the anyway You know it just in my head. I'm like I think I think I have a hard time with staf because I didn't have a a lot of stuff and therefore I find it hard when my child is being bestowed with stuff that I see that I'm like will will. She appreciate the stuff I worry that if she turns out to be spoilt lack lack of a better word spoiled well Brat. I'm just GonNa have our time with that and that will will she generous. will she be kind. will she understand that like there. Here is life outside her little bubble. Will you like her. I hope I always do but I think that's what you're afraid of. I think that's what you're anxious about Maybe you look so sad right now. I don't know it. I had a hard time liking her in the beginning. We I I might. I don't think I was officially diagnosed. But I think I had a little bit of postpartum. I think you know breath ration. Yeah Depression thank you. I think you know breastfeeding was hard. The early days were hard. She'd call egg. She cried for hours on end and reflux. We couldn't put her down. My husband like tell people tell people we have this joke of how him and I both were not horizontal talk at the same time for the first eight weeks of her life because we were holding her upright and was sleeping on a chair. which is they tell you not to do? The only way she she was quiet which wouldn't cry Any like very much. I think it took me time. Someone said to me that Lake you fall in love very slowly I I felt. I don't know where I heard that. But maybe like I didn't mm fall in love with her as quickly as most MOMS do. Or maybe a Lotta MOMS rebuild. Take time to bond with their babies to yeah and maybe I was looking sad tad earlier just now that I'm like and finally at the place where I like actually like her and now I'm like I don't I don't WanNa not like again. That was horrible back then because it felt out lake. You know everyone's joyous around the baby and I just couldn't feel joy into that feeling that I had which was first born or in her early days something like I hate that. I don't WanNa feel that way towards her pets. I think what you're nervous but that's what you're here to talk about your here to you plan and educate yourself and protect yourself for the future for how to think to think about how to parent Kid Who's going to have a lot of things that you didn't have a child and had apparent that type of a person so that she can grow up as someone who you do like the take your kid with your the values that you're proud of and then I worry that m. i. swinging the pendulum the the other way overly indulgent or harsh harsh overly harsh on her worried that you're you're becoming spoiled. Yes yes the my husband. He's kind gracious man. He loved so oh well and he loves her soil and like I can see their relationship and sometimes I'm like why can't I just relax and just enjoy her. Why can I just feel like I can just enjoy her and love on her? Without worrying. You know that lake by Lovey on her unresolved resolve. Wrigley said the word like unabashedly. If I love on her unabashedly that she's going to be okay. I think I feel like I need to hustle to get myself in a stable situation That I can't really fully relaxed because you know what if something were to happen. When what if the bottom water fall out again and so then I'm like I really can't fully fully relax? Do you think that you are still working through some feelings about what was kind of taken away from you at the age fourteen. And and maybe you have. There is some grieving that you're still doing about about that. And that perhaps that may get stirred up for you at points as you look at your daughter and her sort of the comforts and privileges that she will have I think so I mean I. I didn't I didn't think about it before with this as an in the clear crisp way like you put it I I think that's also something that I struggle with. A lot is as you know what they if I have the whole myself. If I allow myself to fit feel full will the fullness of joy in the fullness of life it tastes dot and then all of a sudden that fullness is taken taken away I am going to be shattered so I feel this need to always be protecting myself. And that's taking taking away the joy of mothering for me God. I never realized that applied to set right now however we slice this. I think they're allowed a lot of different ways to look at kind of like the fear he walked in with. And what it's really about. I think the general theme here is that the fear you walked in with the. You're not going to be a good enough mother. You're you're not going to be able to accomplish something that you want in your mothering to raise a mindful child with privilege but I I I think but what it's really about and the work that is going to get help you resolve this. Fear is about Canna revisiting some some unsolved wounds from your past from that abrupt ending of the sweetness Kness of your childhood when you grow up very fast at age fourteen and I think you have some more grieving to do there so that your your story can feel a little bit more healed and whole and so that you can have some emotional space to view. Your daughter story is as new as different but I think grieving as is that. I think that there is a part where I'm like. It wasn't fair for me. ETA Not grow up without my dad like I. She has something that I don't have. And how dare she and I'm like that's not fair way. She didn't choose at neither did I. I think it's it's hard for you to trust this thing that you're providing for your daughter because it was ripped ripped away from you because I think you came in and you were locating the problem. Oh outside outside of you in these places that made you worried. Am I raising her in a place where. She's not going to be a person who's thoughtful of her privilege which she has diversity but I think the the problem. The thing that you need to work on is not outside. It's not as much in like the day-to-day parenting choices as it is. I think about the inner work mark of healing this grief. That is from your own. Childhood Hood is being activated by raising a child. And I think what's so so powerful today is that you've gotten in touch with some projection that I think has been happening where you know because you have had so much real trauma and loss and I think you're this fear about whether or not you're going to do a good job as a mom. I think there's more than one way to learn the lesson of being grateful for what you have. You learned it by not not having you were grateful for what you had because you did not have you do not have a telephone. You did not have at a certain point of father right. But that's not the only way to learn about privilege the challenge on just going to be the teacher daughter about what she has and what other people don't have while she's not being deprived of anything. And that's uncharted territory for me. I don't know how to do that. Well you haven't lived through yet. Yeah but this was sort of the whole beautiful plan here. You know that was the plan. Annalong is for your family. It'd be in a different place than where you begin your mom. She did not. Don't want your daughter her granddaughter to be in the same position as you. She wanted to move her family forward. That that's part of why she left at her home. And so you know you're you're exactly where your mom worked very hard for you to be this confusing in place of having and also being thoughtful. I don't think that's going to be so hard. The teacher little girl that it's hard to teach a two year old that because two year olds. Don't understand abstract concepts so right now you're not gonNA teach it to her but yeah and understand. I think that's that's not the hard part. I think you're gonNA find that to be easier than you fear. I think what the hard part is is healing. Your Own Wounds and reckoning with your own grief about what what you when you were fourteen may think cure rate. I think I think like experiencing joy fully is hard for me. It's a Lotta work. It's a lot of work. Oh my gosh. But it's worth it. It's worth it because it's going to give you a clear her to see your little girl and her separate childhood. That is a separate story from your story. It's going to help you be a better mom. Yeah I think so. I think that it feels hopeful you to have it. It's not even a leak. I think our conversation has just been really hopefully right now. I feel really a hopeful to some degree that that there is a way to work through some of this. It's not just mental hamster wheel. You know we turning thing that I gotta do this. GotTa do this and what about that like. It feels hopeful that there is this other thing that has been completely stone unturned not turned yet that maybe that their ways to work on this. That might help.

229 - 7 Secrets to a Long-Lasting Relationship
"Hi, everyone and welcome back to savvy psychologist, I'm Dr Ellen Hendrickson, and you know, the drill. Al hope you meet life's challenges with evidence based research a sympathetic ear and zero judgment. And as you can probably hear this week. I am getting over a cold. I feel fine. But my voice insists on doing its best impression of a frog. In the meantime, so hang in there with me. And here we go. So today's episode is brought to you by the new podcast fill in the blanks. You know, Dr Phil one of Oprah's most famous friends and frequent collaborators and now you can hear a whole new side of him with his podcast fill in the blanks. That's Phil PH L. So here all new no-holds-barred conversations with celebrities like Vivica, a FOX Kathy Bates and Steve Harvey, plus expert neurosurgeons and lifespan. There's so listen to fill in the blanks on your favorite podcast app, and be sure to subscribe. So this week. Let's talk about how to make a relationship last. 'cause Melwood may have brought you together. But after the clergyman with the speech, impediment instructs you to treasurer your love what next. Well, whether you're married cohabitating or simply in it for the long haul any committed relationship needs a few tools to make it through the years. So this week here are seven. Science back secrets to make your long term relationship. Feel more. Like our Bruno Mars, Mary you flash mob and less like the theme song from married with children. So let's start out with secret number one, which is be your own person. Okay. So before sharing your life with another adult. It's important to have spent some time adulting yourself, you don't have to have your life cross indexed color coded, but it is important to have separated in a healthy way from your family of origin. So if your alarm clock is a phone, call from mom, or you don't get know how to do your own laundry. Invest the time to get your life on solid footing before merging it with another humans. Secret. Number two is be a team. Now. Some problems seem on solvable a fundamental difference in parenting styles in curable, slobby tude or opposite values around money. But the least constructive approach to sticky problems is to blame each other and fight it out. So instead, try and approach called unified detachment unified detachment is a fundamental shift in perspective that joins you and your partner together against the problem. So rather than approaching a problem as you against your crazy unreasonable partner approach the situation as the two of you United against the challenge. So for example, what should we do to save money for the future or how can we work together to fight less secret? Number three is outweighed the negatives with positives. So a classic study out of the university of Washington asked heterosexual newly. Lead couples to discuss a hot button issue in their relationship for fifteen minutes, and the headline making results found that divorce could be predicted from just the first three minutes of the couple's argument and the key. It turned out was the balance of negative and positive interactions. So in their three minute discussion clips spouses in stable relationships, not careening towards divorce predictably display, the less negative affect like contempt. Belligerence anger defensiveness or whining and more positive affect like validation affection and humor. All right. That makes sense. But interestingly for the husband's examining, the entire fifteen minutes of the argument amplified the ability to predict divorce so over the course of the fifteen minutes, husbands in stable, marriages got a little more negative, but they simultaneously stayed positive always making jokes listening and being affectionate. By contrast, husbands in marriages that would eventually end in divorce got increasingly negative and less positive over the fifteen minutes by the end calling their spouse by cute, nickname or validating. Her viewpoint. Went out the window now later the same research lab developed the magic ratio for a healthy relationship for every negative interaction. They advise you need five positive interactions. In other words, stable couples do argue, but that arguing is filled with joking and teasing and listening and love. Secret. Number four be equal a study in the American journal of sociology found that couples it gala -tarian relationships are less likely to divorce than couples where one brings home the bacon and the other cooks it up. So how do you make things more gala -tarian? It's not as simple as splitting up the chores along traditional gender lines. Because a study in the journal marriage and family review differentiated between low control and high control tasks now, low control tasks are named as such because there is little control or choice in the matter. They have to be done more or less continuously like loading and unloading, the dishwasher at specific times like making dinner or on demand. Like changing a diaper, high control tasks by contrast can be done when it's convenient. And they have a specific beginning and end like mowing the lawn or doing a home repair. So traditionally low control tasks have been designated as women's while high control. Tasks have been labelled as men's therefore to increase gala terrorism. Take a page from many same sex relationships and divvy up tasks by interest and value rather than by gender. So for example, the social butterfly takes responsibility for play dates and social events, the foodie makes dinner or does the grocery shopping, and the tasks no one wants, well, you have three options outsource work around because no one has to water plants if you don't have any or divide them up, and even if the dividing ends up falling along gender lines as long as you decided on those assignments together you'll go a long way towards shrinking resent. Now as a PS in families with kids. There's an avalanche of kid related invisible. Labor scheduling play dates, researching pediatricians ordering soccer uniforms and then returning them when they don't fit and in heterosexual relationships this keeping track of. A thousand and one things usually falls to the woman. So how does this get started? Well, it's been argued that it partially starts with maternity leave. It takes time and practice to gain expertise in task. So when mom's are given a leave of absence, but dads are not mom's gained singular expertise during those hundreds of hours with baby. And then that gap never gets closed. The solution paternal leave. Indeed Pew Research survey found that sixty nine percent of Americans believe fathers should receive paid parental leave which would help level the playing field. So if your job offers, parental leave not just maternity leave take full advantage. And if it doesn't do your best to divide up kid tasks evenly from day one.

But not what they can't give you. So while fairytale expectations are bound to be disappointing. A study in the journal of personality and social psychology found that marriages stay happy with a magic combination of high expectations and partners ability to reach them. So in the study couples were asked about their expectations of their relationship and next they were asked to come into the lab identify point of conflict in their relationship and work towards a solution. And researchers watched each partner argue and noted when they avoided the topic criticized or faulted, the other shirked responsibility made presumptions or were hostile. So by contrast. Researchers also noted when partner stayed on topic and furthered the resolution now when individuals had high expectations of the relationship and. Their partners could deliver that match of expectations and ability made for a happier relationship, but not everyone can rise to meet expectations when individuals had high expectations, but their partners how lousy communication skills or dirty those same high expectations set the couple up for disappointment. So the take home is expect a lot of your partner. But only what they're capable of. Secret number six is lie to yourself a little. So remember when you first fell in love, and you thought your partner was the greatest the cutest, the smartest keep them on that pedestal at least a little a study in the personality and social psychology bulletin found that harboring delusions about your relationship when along with greater satisfaction love and trust as well as less conflict. Furthermore, the stronger your initial illusions, the greater likelihood of your relationship lasting over the years. So even when he gets bald and paunchy or she's sporting a mud mask and granny panties. They'll still be your prince or Princess charming. And finally secret number seven is commit to commitment itself. Making a relationship last is more than committing to another person. It's also committing to the idea of commitment. Couple therapists and training are taught to pay attention to three things in the therapy room, each partner and also the relationship every couple creates their own little culture, and it's vital to note, if it's a culture of love support and compromise or one of criticism, insecurity and power struggles. So seen a partnership as something the two of you build together every day keeps you in the game much more than simply in the relationship as a way to get your individual needs met to sum it all up, the grass is greener where you water it. So ten to yourself tend to each other and tend to that third thing your relationship and watch your garden grow. And may not always be a rose garden. But together, it will be yours.

Antidoto budget doctors to figure out why it was the worst painted ever experienced in my life. Now i'm having that my toe and it's not working for me. I gotta be on my speech and i'm a busy woman.

What's it feel like not a lot happened yesterday so i don't have much to recap you guys on. Just being a mom of one such rewarding work says awarding work. We did a superfund china episode this. We really like patriot heavy week because one i put up my full. A wedding extended video trailer on the patriots which we spoke about on our paychecks so but it's just so brave of you like it's just i feel for weddings. I spread myself like i literally sir john much of the world for my wedding but didn't release my video just because like that is so intimate you know you did it super personal but like that was back when we didn't have a patriot and i just i love our patrons. He trends and like everyone really wanted. This video and i was happy to share it and i was really just so glad that because i had such a pit then yesterday we recorded recorded a superfund new creative episode where we combed through the newspaper and talked about all of the craziest weirdest funniest stories we read our horoscopes we really so you went through everything except the sports section to back cover to cover and i think it was filled with interesting facts weights. I really do then today. We have our asbury park behind the scenes episode join up. I've been working on the content. It's premium. It's it's a thirty minute logs. Yeah it super bowl gave actually been watching fellow bloggers to learn the art of the law like hoot lugar's. Do love lauren elizabeth only father but i've learned a lot. I used to watch a little bit. Jade slogs hoped comes back soon a life. Watch him hers. Yeah no 'cause all the b roll camera. I think so i might be able to be ready to take my blogging to the next level. You should really be like a blogger uber but i like to do it for the i like. I like this level of nobody of so many channels in which we post content like we cannot take on another. We'd need not be adding another and then also cloudy and i think this weekend we decided are filming our. I have a pit about it. I haven't paid about a two but drunk at ready with us. We're gonna model after the u._n. But just like probably a little bit lower budget. I don't know if we'll have like craft services. Yeah yeah <hes> getting drunk like unnecessarily. Do you know what i mean so right the saturday night before the concert like saturday afternoon and then we'll go to a concert on certain making. That's a good way to expand our energy. I think that's actually a great idea so it's going to be a fun month for the patriots head over to patriots dot com slash morning toast to get involved. Get the fuck involved involved just like another personal update that i really was excited. Share with everyone is that my husband shaved his entire face. Thank god so i._b._m. Shaded but i said let's have a little it'll fund watt sanding ovation. I said let's have a little fun whilst shaving so he shaved the sides of face goatee and moustache which he left on for far too long. I would've never suggested this little game if i knew he was going to take like two crazy lanes and just john forever and everyone says we look like john forever and ricky he liked like really had something to him. Doing that makes you look more like ricky lake. I know i'm just trying. I was at home working. I'm i don't get involved then tomorrow. Benishi the chin and just left the move sachet as a joke and then he was running around quoting lumiere ladies and gentlemen is greatest chambliss pleasure and he slept with it and he was trying to kiss before about them. I don't even even touch me and then this morning is gone and he looks so great. That's exciting well. He was here on this show with the beard so i feel like the toasters are really involved in the genesis. Well what would happen was that he was really taking this beard like all the way and he went to a beard like silenced and they like trimmed it and shaved it and made it look just like so much like a beard that i hated it like i liked him. I didn't mind it when it was so unkept because like i didn't even realize it was a beer but when it was fully shaved trimmed with the sideburns. I'm like oh. This is a beard. It has to go window radio. I didn't like who he was becoming with the beard you know as you what a way to put it it changes it was changing him and not for the better. I like barefaced east ben michio. I like his personality in like joan bucket up and every time he was on stories the beard i was being crazy. I had to sit down with the beard was like invigorating him it it was it was just too much for me. There was firing about it was it was the no the kerosene yeah the whatever is this something the something anyways. Do you think it's time because i think it could be time. It's one everyone feels ready. I mean i feel i feel as ready as i can be given the morning that i've had understood well without further ado it is time for the past side stories that you need to know before you wake up and take a bite out of your morning toasts yeah so it's time for sure and i i don't wanna upset you because like i know you guys have had a super hard week and like you're just going through a lot at this time fine but please. I'm literally begging you from the bottom of my soul. Let me tell you that today's episode is brought to you by facebook. Watch the real world atlanta. Please tell us the morning.

It's actually it's fucking compelling shit. It is compelling. Ship is what happens when people stop being played and start cutting real for three months like i would die. That's crazy. It's torturous well. At least they're becoming famous. Amos right okay bursts story a little sadness for the ladies out there and gentlemen harry styles shirtless rolling stone cover since fans ends margaux and claudia autrey into a frenzy truly friends really frenzy harry styles has left fans drooling rolling stone magazine unveiled its upcoming cover featuring a shirtless styles sales and fans of the crooner and his old band. One direction went into a tizzy. That is the best way to describe it but i was at a party. I was freaking out the cover. Features is the twenty five year old flaunting his pearly white as he leans into the camera showing off his various tattoos fence couldn't seem to contain their incitement or hormone yeah so this is exciting exciting just because i feel like you don't pose on the cover of a magazine like when you have nothing going on. It makes me think that now the media train is starting to turn something will happen. I mean obviously my the jonah wants it to be a one direction reboot but me thinks it might be like an h._s._a. Tail spotted filming a music video okay. We'll say it's good but i i just i really like i feel like one direction has been super patient the fans as in really patiently. We haven't asked them all do their thing but anything about it. It's been like five years ago. They gave the jonas brothers ten because the jonas brothers broke up. They didn't go on hiatus like the one direction split up with the message being we will get back together eventually. These jonas jonas brothers was like we're done and they never left us hopeful as a one d san and i'm not even at the top of the list i i'm. I'm okay to give them some more more time. I'm firing. You have to think about the expiration date on the boy band. I don't know how jazz i'm going to be for forty year old one direction i am. I don't know i'm i'll be chests thirty one direction where it's like. They're still seeing the same songs but it will have more of a less of a pop vibe. It'll just be good music well. That's what i wanted to say was something we touched on last week my frustration with one direction and when watching their documentary and just like how they all went on after one direction it's like they regarded their music on one direction. Gretchen is like not being serious enough agreed. I think if they're smart and they seem to be now they know that there were actually some really good songs in there and they were releasing out they went album tour album toward like they were just releasing music for the sake of not being releasing new music which was silly like i could've used less music from them but just more filtered out music like they just had songs on albums. It's two complete albums when they were really good on. That album was surrounded by a bunch of water down right so i could. I just wanna impress when they do come back together like i don't want them to think that the music they were releasing as one direction was bad because he was really good. I think however they come back together. It's inherently going to be different. They're not the x factor kids those factoring general like you're signing contracts that like you have to be producing reducing. You probably don't even make that much money from it. I remember when fifth harmony was like getting pretty popular. They said they were still shopping at forever twenty one. They're not as rich as they say also making such little money because of those contracts and then they're all splitting it by five right so i think when wendy comes back it'll be in a different format like now they have agents and managers and like they know what they're doing and some of that will be like we're not putting out music to put out these right and when and if they get back together like they will be a cash machine because they were a cash machine for the labels like they were. I don't think they were even making that much money when they were at one direction but they were generating so much revenue for like for labels for venues when they are now like they're famous enough to make their own deals like they're going to be so fucking rich. Yeah i look forward to that for them. Also like their fans are getting older. Having jobs like i'm ready to spend like ice be in college. I didn't know i couldn't spend and money on the merits right. That's juggles shirt but like i want one right. That's like with the jonas brothers. I feel like they actually might be more successful now moneywise than they were before because the kids that they bursting into back then had to rely on their parents get them tickets their parents get them richer parents to show up to cd signings whereas the jonas brothers fans now are really young but like their o._g. Fan base us like we. We have disposable income to buy tickets yes but i think there's probably some marketers out there. Who could tell you exactly who's richer kids with their parents. Money or people like young professionals that are making money yeah. They can spend their money but it's not like herod left. Young professionals have more freedom with their money but they have probably less disposable income than apparent spending money on their kid. Yeah that's interesting and like parents will spend that money on their kids. Yeah make them happen. It's just more fun to be a fan of someone like when you have your own bank account yeah when you can buy your concert tickets you decide where you're gonna sit right and like when we working. I feel like kids these days. Just go to concerts like all the time when we were kids at concerts. Were the biggest deal and it's crazy because now we actually i think in the next week i'm going to like four or five concerts. We we go to so many concerts because they make us so happy but growing up it was a huge deal to get your parents not only to buy your ticket but they have to go to. They have to sit there this crap so i'm gonna ask my mom. I'm to come to something that i'm going to be like embarrassed also that i like to drive you there too and like it's your living when when we were in with living in the suburbs nasa call seems like an hour yeah it's it was a huge undertaking. I feel like it's not anymore. I don't know why maybe because so many more people are going on to wear like uber yeah. There's so many ways like for it to be different now now but like i always feel like really upset a lot of my stanhood like childhood like i never went to read taylor swift concert when i was fully into a developed san but i just wasn't financially financially independent or like really independent in any other way it was your cross to bear you're making up for now though new i and but it just sin culture which really revolves around kids. It's so limiting. You know you never think about that yeah. I think that the labels do think about it. They're like okay parents. They probably have market research at our like parents will spend this much on their child and it will drive thirty minutes yeah and then they figure it out from there. We should work for a label or some shit i know i think we're cracking the codes. What do you think ounce niche as the status breath. I just hope that zane is in part of the reunion. I hope so too i mean i don't think he will be but i am not upset about it. What concert counters britney spears britney spears. You remember that uh-huh circus yeah we britney spears at circus concert madison square garden. She lives saying her way through. It was embassy yeah. I remember that it was very strange. What was your first concert the john maher shockingly at jones beach which is such a fucking by twelve weekdays. My first concert was john mayer consummate britney spears cleanser sir yes but that wouldn't have been you're i i. We were yeah. I'm gonna mind. Memory is awful. I think it was kind of montana best both worlds and that's i think it was glee no no that was we were in high school. Yeah we best of both worlds. We know we saw her crazy one. She went to his insane. No no no we saw at nassau coliseum the one where like it was twelve. She did not hannah she was not hannah. She was campaigned so lucky to have seen that honestly the hardest part about having dimensions. I spent all these money on tickets and i don't remember him yeah. That's why he's not trying to sound can't be tamed yeah remember. She was on the motorcycle in the in the sky yet. Remember like we left at the encore and she played. Something actually waited because we love that song. Maybe best both worlds. I don't know i doubt it outright. Whatever i can't remember the first concert i've ever read that so sad so sad you tell people that was john mayer because i think it was you and the lydia first concert but i don't think that it was we saw glee growing up in high school so late yeah that was late. You would have been a concert talk before we moved to the city but you would have been in seventh grade. What did you like to hang out with. What about your friends. Think of your year middle school friends anymore before they dumped. You guys you in concert with them. Though okay i feel like you did my first concert wasn't as well is that we're no because my your first one has been stitches. Does your four years older than her three years older but i don't really remember going to a concert like without my family. You know what i mean. Remember anything yeah. I'm really not a good story. That's so sad. They said okay next story. It's splits ville for katie. Holmes and jamie foxx who've split after six years of dating most shocking part about this is that they were together for six years right and that they really hit it very well for four years because i feel like i've known about them for for about two yeah. They've taken their relationship a bit more public in recent months but they've ended their six year. Romance confirms quote jamie katie split music entertainment source tells people the couple parted ways in may the couple's been linked since two thousand thirteen though they've never officially confirmed they're alter private relationship rep for both actors had no immediate comment news of their sleigh comes three days after fox was spotted holding hands singer sell aviv on friday night as the two left buzi see bellows nightclub in l. a. okay so i guess. It looks like he's cheating on her. Meanwhile they broke up in may so now's the time to let you know they're so secretive lega dude and it did when they when every news outlet reported that the the exact same time that they had broken up this is so unlike them to release a statement like after just having broken up but it actually makes sense that they broke up in may and now he's moving onto the had to have broken up you know yeah they really were so successful <hes> being so private and it makes people can do that if they really want to so they just don't want to pretend like they do want it right. I also saw story today. Hey that i didn't choose that was like a paychecks exclusive or someone. Miley cyrus and caitlyn were literally having sex in public west hollywood club essentially like all right. They're not trying to be probably no but when celebrities like deuce things like that and then like demanded like tweet. Let's say if you want your privacy like talk to katie holmes yeah no. I'm a celebrity and i don't want my privacy and i have not like i'm just putting it out there so when do become huge well i think she seems it's like she's a good place. She's like makes me. She makes me really sad when you think about her life and how she got here from like she really was flung on the scene dawson's creek doc. Everyone wanted a piece of her. She could have been like her. Life would have been so different if she didn't start dating tom cruise she also likes now. She's a list and i think she's forever a list whereas when she started dating tom cruise she was she was like manchu robber like she was a you know just another teen actress i <hes> i think that i think she's still probably would have ended up a-list but she would have had to work her way. They're like through roles because she was really. I don't think so i don ever ended up at the met gala uh-huh the met gala. You know think about her contemporaries. Busy phillips was on dawson's creek theory. I think i made that up but no it's the same generated team generation james vanderbeek busy. They're not at the met gala. I was watching tv. I'm john batchelor williams. She's well she on dawson's creek. Yeah i was watching the bachelorette and i was watching live with commercials. I saw two back-to-back commercials with busy phillips in it old navy and old way and then only one pitcher knows where a second is very weird. I was president at at that intentionally. Generally you know like choose rubbing cream and they literally only got department who is rubbing like right in around in by herschel. That's weird. It was like a weird thing that they should have edited ed but it's like that show as much as it wasn't. A success really catapulted her to another level. I don't think before her tv show which he ever been back to back. National campaign commercials yeah so i think overall overall. It's a success because it's launching and by the way like having a t._v. Show even been canceled like as someone who busy phillips was never meant to be daytime. She was an actress consoling. Julie earned herself she just being funny and having a good instagram and even though it got cancelled like that is a success i feel she's talking on her instagram like the big failure of her career like no. That's it's a big success. You had one hundred t._v. Shows like kim kardashian on your show like six agreed to show like got cancelled embarrassed. It'd be a fucking t._v. We we had like one year of five nights a week. I would just watch him on repipe for the rest of my life and it'd be so tired. Five minutes week is like super hard. It's a lot of work like real t._v. Like the production takes all day. I'd be tired. I'll take take some time off. It'd be like so grateful. I'm seeing all these articles. That's basically wants to know more about wire t._v. Show was cancelled well. I think there's only one reason t._v. Shows get canceled. That's because like lack of ratings on <hes> just like be grateful. That sounds amazing. Yeah you did it. It's it's better to have something in losted than to never have had it at all complete some people who have never had it at all busy eighty regretful okay. Next story is actually really shocking to me seems to surprise but billy eyelashes bad guy hits number one on the billboard hot one hundred dethroning lil non-sexist old town heard actor a record nineteen weeks on top. That's crazy and it's also crazy that the sun dethroned is a song that like someone who's very immersed in pop how culture i don't think i've ever heard in full info maybe not but you know this out and say ju ju ju ju. It sounds like an arcane. Bad guy see looked three people young people who are like pop culture fanatics. We do it as a fulltime job and we don't even know this song in fault. That's like the power of the teenyboppers. I don't know the leary's justin justin bieber like congratulated her instagram story and like it really not to make everything about tellers but it reminded me of something tell us with one set because he said congratulations so happy to have been a part of your historic. He's been a part of history like really including himself. What did he do oh. He remixed it like he did. She's just got famous as being like a justin bieber. He came out the song she she released a song with him. On a verse. Yes not gonna like billy ray tweeting at i mean it just was a little like that will be men who try and take for your for your fame and your accomplishments and that's just what it sounded like. That's also like mason ramsey tweeting lil not who was like i'm the lasted lasted still cute. Just don't like justin bieber justin bieber actually really like him in hilly. I like him and haley but i don't like him. Just like makes me feel weird and i feel like everything he posts on instagram. He doesn't know he's posting. Do you know what i mean. Yeah i agree like he sat on his phone and things like he's accident. He's definitely weird. I really like him in haley like super growing on me too and she's like the most beautiful woman in the world and it's really sad that it took her like having to marry like the most famous person in the world for people to realize i was an issue is really. It's really frustrating because i still still don't think people realize that like she's technically model. Cheats still gets no work because she's so short. Feel like height doesn't matter anymore unless you're walking in a fashion sued way yeah and she said she's never doing it again. She literally made it her story because she was like. I don't know how to walk. I also don't think i've ever heard her speak. I have in her seventy. Three questions ends and she was like so soft spoken and just like literally. If i touched her she would break. That's crazy was just so fragile as i felt about sophia ritchie until the video i i know i know me neither but once i heard her talk i'm like oh you can take a punch in the face wouldn't be broken. She's built tough board. I think she is built tough like four guideway abi for scott and everything and she she literally this nineteen year old when she met him like change him yeah. I walked thirty. Something men stuck in his ways. Their relationship relationship is like ninety nine percent. I love but like the one percent where it's like. She literally looks like his child is like so fracking creepy but i really like them. I watched watchful and i thought it was interesting. There's a lot of characters beside scott many and the girl that like not willa the girl brunette girl lives in his house. Awesome like works for him like is really annoying. I don't know her name. I don't know which is just like all up in his business like really just trying to say stuff. That would be funny on t._v. She was really annoying me. I think they'll they'll figure out who's well like. I don't like us released. Fighting was hilarious. I didn't see that episode but i don't like his partner. His immediate partner who liked does the deals with because he talks too much each flip it like not like flip partner yeah. Nobody's super interesting in scotland really definitely knows what he's talking about and what's so crazy you made. This call is like this show. Should've i've been flip it like courtney to you when he needed a decorator. Courtney is a decorated. She's actually an incredible decorator. She was architectural digest so i don't know if she's like actually sleep. Just dot stupid that she didn't do it just that they dubber yeah yeah and i don't know which one i remember those episodes like a budget seasons ago where they were driving around downtown four years ago. He was already starting to develop but he was a team like you do designs and then she was okay and then she was like actually like i'm going to do owed so dumb vincit as poos greatly great like i actually i like willa ford and i definitely want to be bad if you agree.

Lauren bush week disgraced fucking joe paolino if they would do it. Some of the women don't need it. You know what i mean. You know i think some of them amer like probably to private to do but i think i think britney kelly would love it brian kelly's by from florida georgia. She has a business that she would love to promote. Lauren be would like it. I think ncoa would do it so maybe it's not real house then. Maybe it's just like what do we need to be on bravo because anytime soon in a reality show that doesn't work like wags it has to go on your bravo but such a derogatory term no a different name yet. It has to be the concept she with like pitched the show. I actually feeling really passionate. I i. I have to believe that someone saw it and it didn't happen for a reason like i think the reason would be like that. Tricia earwood isn't down. You know yeah but i. I don't think she's right for the show no she. I think brittany aldean would be down and she would probably the biggest name and she would be. I feel like the center of the group where it's like. She's really connected to like the old school like luke bryan's wife because jason aldean's like cemented in his career but she's also like new wave. She's an instagram yeah and i mean if our lincoln cars right. It could have been hurt. She could've seen herself on on wag part.

She's back carrie. Underwood does the awards with dolly parton and reba mcentire higher the c._n._a. Awards are splitting things up this year on monday. The country music association carrie underwood would once again return to host but instead of decade-long maintain brad paisley.

The men just like dominate everything so i don't think brad pitt c._j. Anything wrong. I just think it's good luck gentlemen. How stern yeah no. I think they're switching things up and we were just saying like two weeks. When will they switch it up.

Glasses dot com com slash toast sign on protect your feel see amazing okay patron hard as we'll recap tomorrow tomorrow on the snatcher but just my overall thought it was a tough episode. It took us forty five minutes to get the roosevelt and honestly like that fight was really stupid it and honestly like justice for christian. He literally didn't do anything wrong yet but no he needed violently. Jordan was stupid but then christian put. Hey escalated it so they are both in the wrong. They were both in the wrong but from the beginning christian didn't do anything wrong. He came to partisan saw someone you liked. All these guys like hating him because clay electrical nicole went along with it like he didn't do anything i i agree and jordan gordon coming over and instigating with the what was it was stupid and immature and instigating christian devastated more violent by putting hands on both jordan literally picked him up and body slammed him and that was a whole other level. They both needed to go without but if they had to pick one person to go home. It should have been jordan. Oh i think they would have sent home. Christian because jordan did was like technically like when he threw the teddy bear in the ocean like that didn't be escalating become a fight. It was just a petty thing to do and he was doing that again. In this show runs on petty shit so like he wasn't doing anything off book i. I was really surprised that they were just like very teacher. You both go home. You know yeah we'll after last last season. I honestly i'm so glad that they both went home. They were both probably going going home anyway. Yeah so i wasn't upset about it and then christina just being such a loser like giving a rose like and she thinks she's like this. Evil gene is like i want want him to watch. Hannah and dylan follow love stupid like she was. Where's that she's not just like stupid stupid to be sued tavora. She thinks she's a genius right. She was really frustrating me to watch and honestly like i was watching the episode like i hate nicole. Then tweeted something nicole. Oh and she tweeted back unless you could have been me and then she wasn't. I respect for her for being able to laugh at herself like every time of tweet like has gone viral about her like and it is a little funny about her. She could be a weenie it was amazing to me but she's taking rolling with the punches and accepting the twitter followers gracefully and i really respect that i have to put it out there like i respect the hell out of nicole lopez. Yeah that's yeah. That's a cool thing to do yeah no. It's very brave i can't. I can't say that i would do the same <hes> what else happened. Demi and derek are falling apart falling apart. It's like sad to watch. Oh eleven eleven make away. Oh also what's happening is the greatest relationship of all time maybe the romeo and juliet of our generation jump jones and teixeira. I completely agree three and you know who john paul. Jones reminds me out to griss yes from the society psyche psyche appears like jok and but then he's like so learned in touch with his emotions motion and he's just so much more than he seems to be and he's like amazing no and like that scene. I'm so glad that they've played that entire scene like it was a very long conversation of before they jumped in the pool they were sitting on and it was like a weird conversation but it was like so playful and so cute and like it was an affiliate people don't get that much airtime usually but they showed the whole conversation front to end where the jump in the pool and it was the best conversation i i was like a giddy twelve year old watching it. No i love them and i've been saying 'i sanitation derek but now i stand teixeira and john paul jones especially because i just love when guys like the like someone and they're obsessed with them and they're not gonna stray in there and they're so grateful for these women giving them the time of day they should be. That's why like every person who's being like dilemmas clinging winging like urine asshole because girls love to be like a nice guy like oh these kinds of jewish bags and he was a very clear agenda. I only once hannah and hannah annalong forever and ever until the day he dies and everyone painting crazy clanger like no. That's what girls want so. Stop asking if you don't actually want it. I agree that it's cute but it's not as cute when it's like i mean i really liked them so i don't even want to say anything negative but like when it's g and she's i clearly like the number one girl role in this group. It's not so like romantic when someone's like obsessed with her and going to do everything to paper romantic but i don't think it's weird people are making. It seem like he's a freak yeah. It's now free. I'm glad they finally found their ground by the by some of the women in paradise that you could see the way they talk and their testimonials are so fucking gels at hanan like i would be too because if you just came there and all these guys literally five guys are obsessed with hannah for you. It's really annoying but the way that like sydney. Some of the women talk about hannah. They fucking hate her. Yeah it's my trees it so fucking fucking annoying. No it isn't and that's what i felt aneka. She's like there's two guys here and four girls and they've all had sex with each other and like i don't feel included and like what am i doing here and michio people were saying it was selfish as you for not to give a rose to like wheels or someone must book that go home bitch and we need to cycle these people out there. Those guys aren't getting arose have now been there for two weeks and they've made they knew connections. There's been a lot of premium girls coming through and you know what i don't see it happening for you like if you couldn't make a good like the first people that are the best people. It's not going to get much better from here except gentile. I've is coming next week and i fucking stan sheriff. She was coming. I wasn't sure if she was coming but if i thought she was coming they would address the fact that her and blake went on a date and think they're going to they we have to. I didn't see it in the trash. There was only so much they could give us anything. They also don't wanna show us some broke. The news like months ago when like so many rumors about blake where swirling he was spotted somewhere in the national and she lives there that means that he once again uses frequent flyers lawyer isn't someone from the franchise and make connections before and he went on the table. I've never really got written up and everywhere but the <unk> fucking founded and that picture resurfaced last night in the toasters facebook group because it's so crazy they'd better address it. I have to their addressing everything you know. He's he's not getting away with nothing and so i think the gen sav on top of the caitlyn up at all now he would be up to seven girls that he's been mingling with that might finish him well. What was so interesting is. I was actually surprised at hanna chose dylan because you know i'm no body language expert but i was watching down syndrome percents cheese stayed and then the mariachi date and hannah was so much more carefree uncomfortable like more touchy more forward with blake and every time dealing pulled away and gave the cheek like i really thought for sure. She was gonna choose blake. I didn't think she was going to choose blake like because she's concerned with her image but i agree that it just from what we saw and i know we don't see everything but from what we saw it looks like she was just more interested in had more chemistry tree with blake and even at the date after she made the decision that date with all the aztec dancers. She's still didn't seem like she did with blake. Dillon has her head but like her heart and she went with her head. Which is what we're all like supposed to do and she's doing what she's supposed to do. And maybe it will turn into real true true love. I really like dylan and i appreciate him being a good guy going after the most sought after girl power and having a real chance at it you know yeah unlike having for it but he's the underdog but i don't think that they're really a match made in heaven. I don't yeah i agree because i feel like she has a wandering eye because this is the prime of like you know. It wasn't just an instant connection for site. She's she's closing every other door. I think here is are still like wait. Who's coming jugie kristin cavallari for gals nashville. I was thinking that but but she has her own show. Why would she do that because maybe this show would actually be good very have larry's now getting a third season which means that doesn't mean it's good. It means there's rate. It needs to be chosen. League get cancelled for one unreason so true you set yourself. I did say i when you quote me back a okay. Let's see there are three snatcher. We'll watch the show tonight yes and below deck. Oh oh below deck just such a good show. I never forget. I never remember what day it's on but it's like i'm always watching t._v. And then it's like the new episode she's so excited to see it. It's just such a consistent like funny. Happy sad like it's just a good show. It's an all around show. Oh my gosh you guys have to watch the patriot episode of as park. I don't wanna say what we talk about that. It's pretty interesting <unk> thing what related to oh did you. Did you talk about it. Yeah we did because we were in the car. Oh my god wait. It's subscribe to the paper and watches the just for that moment because i don't know if we're going to do it we'll talk. We'll talk about it after the video. My stomach is ronald. I wonder if you could hear the episode was kind of boring. Everytime i fast forward through commercials i was like oh my god. It's only been like this this short. Nobody this charter crew was the charter group on the boat was funny. They were funny and i think they had a good time but i didn't tip the throwing up. That was crazy crazy. Oh my god that was the craziest thing i ever saw like how they show us so much. I don't know and he almost threw up on asia asia. Then he ended up throwing up on one of the camera guys because there's another because it was below deck yeah so sad so terrible but they they shouldn't have been showing us the first on the rail for so long. Come on come on. I'm really struggling between i actually really like and respect and watch him watch a rerun but he basically was like such an asshole. Last season and andy was like what happened like much better this season. He was like seeing myself on t._v. Me like being such a prick was like so humbling and really grew up so much and it just really like like him and respect him. I think he really likes his job and he really wants to grow the captain like just being so unnecessarily hard on jack doc disagree really i think he's trying to handle chocolate cake gloves and i think jack's fucking terrible. He's so annoying. He doesn't do his shop. What are you doing here. He's like dead weight on this boat and like like what's worse is that everyone loves him until you always like not even being as needed if everyone hated jack would could be even meaner tame but it's like this person who sucks at their job and it only affects me but everyone else likes them so i'm going to him like i'm on the outside the garage the only one not in a relationship he takes his job really seriously and jack is like just a <hes> like he seems like a cool dude but like he's not a worker bee yeah but it's just like he spent like being so nitpicky like jack was cleaning the rails and he came out and was shot the fire because he was like not clearly the whole rail but like parts of it where there were spots. I don't know it just seemed like it was really looking for a reason to yell at him. You can say go out there and give it to him he. I guess i didn't kevin danny. Kevin is not like the most fierce leader like she's very much a doormat. No i think it's a bigger like the obviously the rails wasn't the first the third thing and so when you're in front of the captain and you're still fake cleaning with the fuck are you doing. What are you doing when you're not in front of the can also. I really like have taken. You're gonna turn a negative turn on anesthesia yes. She never should have accepted the chef job. She obviously couldn't handle it like it was cooling when they were in a pig but when they docked had new charter guess he should have gotten a new chef captains any that was the biggest mistake. Anesthesia can't let hair the hair not okay and she doesn't take responsibility for you. This is the craziest thing she ever said. I'm not responsible for what happens when the dish lease galley and goes up to the table if it gets cold in that journey then that's not my fault because it was hot when it left my kitchen. It's it's a ten second walk. There's no way it goes from hot to cold yet and then like her plating making everyone run like and not telling anyone who the well done stakes were yet. This like there are tons of ships in the med that had chefs that get hot food out like you just didn't learn how to make food hot and you're not like you had to just be like. I don't know what i don't know. It's on me not because they're walking to philly yeah and hannah's definitely getting a little. It's weird for like someone who is two levels below you now to be your equal and has definitely looking for things wrong on like she literally said to the guy who who had the well done steak who wasn't done well done but she went up to him was like do you want this cooked more. He didn't ask well. She probably saw that it wasn't clicked and he wasn't showing for sure for sure. She's doing her job also like they're correct in saying like the food makes the tip thousand bazan. If you have bad food but good service like it's not going to be a great experience. If you have great food and mediocre service you'll get a better tip endlich. It's about the food until she's like being critical of anesthesia's because that's affecting acting her wallet jaggi when they were like the hairs because it wasn't mine like how do you know that would also. That's not the way to respond right on so sorry. She immediately went on the defense. This job is not for hunting right and i'm really looking forward to her being debunked back down to third stu but kevin sandy was once again in a pickle because now she has choose third stews and she has to let someone congo and i didn't think that it should be june. I couldn't agree more and i know june's not like the best thirty but first of all she's like the nicest person to ever go on reality t._v. I think she's the newest to the boat like a it's time not everyone is gonna learn everything that second yeah anytime hannah's hold her something like she fixes and she does it. She's always talking doing laundry which seems to be like the worst job there to launch but she's always actively working yes. She doesn't complain like i and why does she get punished because of anesthesia's like flip-flopping. I couldn't agree more. I think anesthesia's should've went home. I don't know what the right thing to do was but i mean collins going to come in and save the day like i ship calling in june and i hope that gives them a big fat kid when he gives her his job. Allen is like such a nice guy. I'm watch which wasn't last night but they replayed it. He was saying how likes he gets so many moms in his d._m._z. Date his daughters and then he was like what's tape and he goes. I just let people like me back. How fucking satisfy that's horrible thing i've ever heard it's the most was pathetic thing. I've ever heard no but i kind of feel him. I feel like growing up. I used to be that way because i was like if you like naming have good taste. You know you must be funny. Yes mark yeah. You must be ingenious to know that i'm so why wouldn't i go out with genius yeah. That's a great goal so okay anyways june june hannah. I'm in this her. I know what it's like. She really gave the season bravo's now. Shop by bravo selling merge with june june hannah she created june japan has literally taken over twitter like she created this viral moment like she got fire. Yeah i think she'll keeper job. I also loved how she handled when she got fired because she didn't just like take it and be a doormat ormat but she also wasn't disrespectful. She was just like that's not nice. It's it's also. It's really not fair. You have fired when you do something wrong and the girls like saying the dream team together so me and i just it was so not right reminds me of season one below jack riquet chastain and that girl cat were so fucking fucking me to this girl amy who was just like this other girl who she wasn't cool and like stated really get along the other. Two girls were much closer. They were so fucking like the fact that this girl ended up coming back on another. Susana below deck was shocking like they were talking about her right in front for face like it was so mean until evil at that's it reminds me of lab talking about trevor. Stopping anesthesia in the face is just like he's he's got to go and at what point is what you do off the boat affect your job. It really like shut ins yeah but it really hold on it really was confusing because remember when chef miller saying all those crazy things he was like so like the moral compass in the car like really like i was like yes you go trevor. I loved him and like how you can be two different people this crazy crazy. That's reality though in a sentence yeah but also like alcoholism yeah yeah. It was honestly like a really i mean it was an unfortunate thing that happened but the way that this show handle it. It was really good. Mini lesson like this is like what this is problematic but it doesn't always look problematic on its face okay so we're back tomorrow and then also we'll be dropping this week's episode of the snatcher tomorrow afternoon so make sure to find us on spotify until we're back up and running on.

228 - How to Be Happy When the World Makes You Depressed
"Welcome back to savvy psychologist, I'm Dr Ellen Hendrickson. Happy new year and every week in two thousand nineteen I will help you. Meet life's challenges with evidence based research a sympathetic ear and zero judgement. So listener Lynn wrote in and asked, quote, how to find happiness or at least comfort in a world that is fundamentally broken in so many ways, she writes, quote, I cannot help but be sad to think about things like plastics in the ocean wildfires in the west caravans of refugees about to be met with military force and the extermination of the Rowena I have frequent reminders to be thankful for all. I have nonetheless. I am often unhappy because of the many ways that humans are unkind to each other and to our planet now Lynn's beautifully articulated problem isn't unique everyday the headlines push our buttons of. Alarm, despair and fury all at once. And when those headlines start to blend suspiciously with the Handmaid's tale or bring to mind, visions of Wally sorting through post-apocalyptic, garbage. It's easy to feel sad and hopeless. So what is a thinking feeling human to do well much like the climate change episode from a few weeks ago? I can't promise to fix the world in fifteen minutes or less, but before you move off grid and start brewing your own zombie repellent. You can try these four tips to be happy in a world that can feel like a Mad Max chase through the headlines. Tip number one is feel what you feel and let it spur you to action. So in my humble opinion, one of the few negative side effects of the happiness movement is the mistakenly sky, high expectation that we feel happy most if not all of the time but set those expectations against a backdrop where according to a Gallup. Poll eighty seven percent of people worldwide don't like their jobs, according to the CDC around forty percent of marriages end in divorce, and according to anyone not living under a rock. The headlines pummels with bad news, twenty four seven the result is major dissonance. So instead of fake smiling through the negativity lean into all your feelings. We are wired for a wide range of emotions from the peanut butter and jelly of sadness. Anger and fear to the more nuanced, emotions, like envy, contempt or -hension. So rather than seeing emotions other than happiness as bad or wrong. Mine them for their own unique powers. So let's take anger, for example. Anger Spurs UT act. It's like the classic bumper sticker. If you're not outraged you're not paying attention anger, drives people to call the representatives head to the voting booth and otherwise bridge the gap between. Doing nothing and doing something now sadness to has its uses sadness is the most clear headed emotion. It doesn't cloud judgment or create knee-jerk reactions like anger instead it's been found to confer generosity. Reduce judgmental errors and make us. More polite. Three humane things in a world that needs all the humanity. It can get. Tip. Number two is search out. Good news. Now journalism faces a unique challenge for news organizations to survive, they have to generate clicks and views they can use to attract advertisers and in an attention economy. What makes us click more than conflict divisiveness and tragedy? Everybody loves a good train wreck. But as cognitive psychologist, Steven pinker points out in his Ted talk, no newspaper ever reported one hundred thirty seven thousand people escape from extreme poverty yesterday. No news analyst ever reported live from a city where there was no terrorist attack. And pinker goes on to make the case that the world is getting better on metrics as diverse as file ins- literacy, poverty and even the probability of being killed by a lightning strike now. Good news doesn't give us the same cheap thrill as bad news. But in times like these search out a good new site. There are. Dozens like upper the or good to restore your faith in humanity. Tip number three, take a break from social media. Now social media has become not only a way to see our high school classmates. Most recent Hawaiian vacation photos and videos of that raccoon in Minnesota. But also the best or maybe we should say worst sources of news both real and fake. So a study out of the university of Copenhagen asked half of a group of over a thousand participants to quit Facebook for a week while the other half carried on as usual and those on a Facebook fast reported after a week better life satisfaction, and notably they felt more positive emotion. So this makes sense because reprieve from social media not only gives us a break from the envy of the highlight reel. But also a break from the whip sign that comes from the news click bait in our feet and more than makes up for missing out on that ustralian giant cow.

And meaning and what activity went along with both happiness and meaning social connection. Now there were nuances so hanging out with friends was linked more strongly to happiness, then meaning while spending time with family taking care of kids was meaningful but not necessarily happy. Likewise, being a giver was meaningful. While takers were happier. But overall connecting with others was the.

231 - 7 Strategies to Maximize a Break Without Losing Focus
"Welcome back. It's savvy psychologist, I'm Dr Ellen Hendrickson. And as always I'll healthy meat. Life's challenges with evidence based research a sympathetic ear and zero judgment. Everybody needs a break and two great inventions that speak to that need are the weekend. And the vacation both of which have distinct beginning and end but break in the middle of the workday is a more elusive challenge because deadlines demanding bosses guilt and sheer workload often make us power through we eat lunch while catching up on Email and consider a walk to the bathroom a luxury on the other hand, even if we value and prioritize breaks, sometimes they go off the rails unintentionally shape, shifting into a momentum killing two our rabbit hole of online shopping one more round of snake versus block or BuzzFeed quizzes anyone for a round of we can guess your color based on the trip. If you plan to Michigan anyone either way stopping to stare out the window or wander the halls at work may seem lazy guilty do seen willpower taxing or logistically impossible, however done right breaks can boost focus. Recharge your batteries and make you more productive. Not to mention happier. So should be meditate knockout, some burpee watch the latest SNL cold open stare out the window pester Q mate, or none of the above. How to do it? Right. Well, this week here are seven ways to make those few minutes really count. Tip number one is the basics any break is better than no break. So for anyone who so over scheduled that lunch consists of wolfing down a protein bar in a bathroom stall. Let's make it clear that taking a brake any brake is better than power in through a study in applied cognitive psychology. Ran a head to head comparison of five different kinds of breaks. Everyone was asked to focus on a task that required sustained attention for forty five minutes and in the middle. Participants took a five minute break to play on their phone. Sit in silence, listen to a cold place on watch a cold play video because apparently even researchers crush on Chris Martin or choose between the song and the video and compared to the group that took no break at all performance was better in every single one of the break conditions, and this makes sense after all hell, much productivity. You realist get out of that fifth straight. Our of studying. For your calculus exam taking a break. Whether it's quiet or loud, mindless remindful is better than nothing tip number to make your break different than your work. Everyone has that coworker. Who's Cologne makes your eyes water? But even though you can smell the drac hard war before he enters a conference room. He has no idea. Why? Well, it's a trick of the brain called habituation just like folks who live next two busy streets. Stop hearing the traffic or you tune now notifications because your phone pins all day long. We all tend to screen out sustained stimuli, and researchers from the university of Illinois hypothesize that even when we're actively attending to stimuli like a work project or other tasks they dub cognitive goals, we still habituate as time goes by making task unrelated thoughts, aka distractions more active, therefore, the researchers proposed that quote deactivating cognitive goal. In other words. Taking a break can keep habituation from occurring. And after the break the goal can be reactivated therefore for your break. Do something one hundred eighty degrees different than what you were doing. So for those of us who stare at a screen all day that rules out taking a break by staring at your phone. So instead doing something physical like a few jumping jacks going for a walk to pick up lunch at the type place down the street or strolling across the building to rehash the bachelor with jasmine from HR will benefit you more than playing love balls on your phone, again, love balls is better than no break at all tip number three counter-intuitively take breaks that keep you in work mindset. Okay. So we've talked about productive procrastination on the podcast before like unloading the dishwasher getting your insta- cart shopping done or catching up on that nonfiction book. You've been meaning to read it feels like you're getting something done, even if it's not the big thing with the looming deadline that you're. Supposed to be working on now productive procrastination may be full of pitfalls. But the very same types of tasks productive, but easy like sorted in the mail or searching online for plane tickets can be perfect for taking a break productive tasks that don't require much brainpower, but still provide contrast to your work can downshift your ears without taking you out of a work mindset. Now back in tip. Number two. We talked about making your break contrast with your work, but an activity that contrast with your work ethic, virtually guarantees, you'll still be watching honest trailers on YouTube Forty-five minutes later, therefore test outbreaks that don't break your productivity momentum walk across the hall to chat with your co worker about a project, reschedule your dentist appointment, or if you work from home throw a load of laundry into the machine. Annalong gourmet cookware can bring your inspiration to life on the dinner table. Whether you're gourmet cook or bake off or the Baker. They've got you covered. With everything from expertly crafted cookware, bakeware, cast-iron stoneware cutlery, tools and gadgets, you might try the analog advanced collection. It's twice as hard as stainless steel and with nonstick surfaces. It is easy to clean or you could try out the new Ville, copper looks collection with a copper base that looks beautiful and functions perfectly whatever collection you choose you can rest easy. Knowing your gourmet cookware will last for years to come all analog products are protected with a lifetime warranty. So I use analog cookware every day it heats quickly and evenly never sticks. And cleanup is shockingly easy. It's perfect for everything from quick scrambled eggs to homemade stock that simmers for a couple of days. So shop an-and at Macy's in store or it. Macys dot com.

So now tip number four take a micro break a break doesn't have to be elaborate or lengthy, especially if you're trying not to break momentum and under a minute, micro break might be just what you need and the bonus they can actually be effective. Researchers from the university of Melbourne asked participants to complete a tedious task that required close attention, specifically pressing a computer key when any numerical digit except three appeared on their computer screen in the middle of the task half. The participants were shown a picture of a building with a bare concrete roof for just forty seconds while the other half or shown a picture of flowering green roof for forty seconds. Now, those who saw the green roof made significantly fewer mistakes on their subsequent task providing shout for both micro breaks and for green city, Bruce. So even under a minute of staring out the window. It turns out can be good for your productivy. Vity? Tip number five trade the mid afternoon slump for a morning break. Now, most of us had for Starbucks or catch up on Colbert monologues during the three PM mid afternoon slump. But a study out of the journal of applied psychology found that a break in the morning was more productive. Why? Well, essentially by three PM, it's too late. You're already drained and are good only for brainless administrative tasks or cleaning out your Email inbox. But in the morning, you can still regain your nine AM levels of focus after a rejuvenating break. Many of us focus better in the morning. So extend your peak productivity by taking a break around ten or eleven. Tip number six. Don't break flow as great as breaks. Are you don't need to follow your pummeled awro timer? Slavishly? If your work seems to be doing itself, your ideas or flow in as fast as your adrenaline or if you're so absorbed you've lost track of time rock on don't take a break. Just because you think you should because the dirty secret about breaks is that it can be hard to get your Mojo back. So if you're happily chugging along there's no need to step on the breaks tip number seven. But when it's time to rest rest like you mean, it after your work is over rest like you mean, it if your workweek keeps you tethered to Email dare to leave it behind on the weekend, or at least until Sunday night, use evenings and weekends to put away your to do list do activities that take you out and away from work completely and see your friends and family. So here's another way to think about it be inspired by your cat or dog when they. Rest they rest full on. They don't check Twitter or think about Monday morning. They find a sunny spot and rest, like it's the only thing on the agenda because it is to wrap it all up rather than stressing over what kind of break to take or what interval to follow the twenty five minutes on five minutes off of the Pomodoro method. The fifty two on seventeen off the desk time method. Do what works for your style and circumstances. So in short go ahead and the kit Kat jingle to yourself as you take a walk around the block gush about the great British bake off with Allen from accounting. Stay productive by making a grocery list. Or of course, listen to play no matter what you do. You'll be glad you took a break. Thank you for making savvy psychologist part of your life. We are trying something new here at the show.

Episode 3-23 A tale of a truly Evil man.
"Alot. You have discovered the five, four two and the blue. PODCAST. Discussions of law enforcement, history issues and incidents in the Appalachian. Mountains and beyond. Hosted by Scott. LUNCEFORD retired police detective, Sergeant Author and researcher. Today's shade of Blue Story is a tale of a truly evil man. Charles Carl Panzer Room. American serial killer rapist, arsonist, rubber, and burglar. He confessed in prison and his autobiography to have twenty two murders and over one thousand physical and sexual assaults on men and boys. This is Victoria. Your producer for five four to the. Background music provided with licensed by Purple Planet Scott We'll according to one. Thank you Victoria, and welcome back to five four to end the blue. Now a couple of weeks ago we talked about. A woman that the New York Times. Said was the worst woman in the world. As kind of strong language. And you really have to be. Bad to be considered the worst woman in the world. No doubt. Well today, we're going to talk about what might be called the worst man in the world. Or? You might say. One of the most evil men. That you've heard about Annalong time now we've all heard of. Serial killers in there's TV shows and documentaries about them and Ted, Bundy is a household name. There are movies about them are movies that create characters that are. Murderers and just. Evil Evil people as the man said, truth is stranger fiction and unfortunately evil truth. Is. More Evil Than Evil Fiction. Now, Confucius once said. The small man thanks that small acts of goodness are of no benefit. And does not do them. And the small deeds of evil do no harm. And does not refrain from them. Hence his wickedness become so great that it cannot be concealed. And his guilt so great that I cannot be pardoned. There are those men who say to repay evil with kindness. But I say, how then are we to repay kindness? Repay kindness with kindness but repay evil with justice. Now, the individual going to talk about today. He escaped justice for quite some time. Late finally caught up with him and we've talked about the ladies in the room before. Especially last. Season Lady Justice. Lady Karma. And Lady Luck watching the door. And eventually, all three. Of the ladies, all three sisters caught up with this gentleman. The subject we're talking about today. Is Coral. Kinser. Carl was born. And East Grand Forks Minnesota. He was a son of immigrants. He was raised on the family's farm with five brothers and sisters. It was set my some including Carl himself. That by the age of five he was. Pretty much a liar and a thief. Growing meaner, the older he grew. In eighteen ninety nine. Carl. At that time eight years old. was sent to juvenile court for being drunk and disruptive. Whereas, we used to say in Asheville. Deity. Drunken. Disruptive. Now at eleven years old, he was again in jail for the same thing. He also stole cakes, apples. And other items including a revolver from neighbors zone. Is Parents sent him to the Minnesota State Training School. In, nineteen. Oh Three Are No face actually sent him there or if he was sentenced thereby the courts. But while he was there, he was repeatedly beaten tortured and sexually assaulted by residents and staff members according to his autobiography. Now, this was common knowledge that occurred in what the students called the painting house. Because children would leave their painted with bruises and blood. Now Carl did the painting house so bad that in July of nineteen o five. He literally burned it now. The arson was not connected to him and he ended up being paroled from training in nineteen of six. AM biased teens. Carl was pretty much alcoholic and vigil fender. Mostly burglary and theft. At the age of fourteen, he attempted to kill a Lutheran church cleric with a revolver. He ran away from home taking up being Hobo basically on the train lines that timeframe. It was dangerous move as he reported later in his autobiography of being assaulted many times to include sexual assaults on him committed by older rail riders. At the. Age Of fifteen. In nineteen o seven. He was able to fool military recruiters and was able to enlist in the army. And his career in the military was kind of short lived in a short time he was of course arrested and convicted of Larceny. And served a one year term. In Fort, Leavenworth. And served a one year prison term in Fort Leavenworth Disciplinary barracks. At that time secretary of war. And Future President. William. Howard Taft approve this sentence. And his discharged from the military. Carter later wrote that any goodness that he had him left when he was locked up in Leavenworth. In Carl took our task signing of his internment papers and putting him out of the military. He took that kind of personal as we'll discuss a little bit later. Eventually he was released from Leavenworth. And like I said, kicked out the army with dishonorable discharge. Now Carl needed to have income. So turned what he knew best stealing lying an thievery. Carl would steal anything from bicycles to yachts and was caught and imprisoned many times for those offenses. He served time under his own name and several aliens to include time spent in several state prisons and prisons in the Appalachian Mountain areas for thefts and assaults. Now. When he was in prison. Pans Ram frequently attacked officers and would not follow orders would get into fights and, of course, officers retaliated causing beatings and other punishment. In his autobiography again, crawl wrote that he was rage personified. And he would often rate men who had robbed. He was noted for his large stature and great physical strength due to years of hard prison labor. No doubt. He did have a few legitimate jobs at times. One of his semi-legitimate jobs. was as a strike breaker against union employees. When that didn't work out. For reasons. He tried to sign on board as a ship's steward on an army transport vessel. But when he showed up for the first day of work, he showed up drunk and they just. Kicked him off fortunately. Being, kicked off the crews probably saved quite a few people's lives. I'm sure that would have been a very fun cruise to have been on. In June nineteen twenty-three. Carl said he killed a man with thirty eight pistol. Pistol that he stole from a house break in of the chief of police of new Rochelle New York. He also recorded having killed a man while breaking into a home in Baltimore, Maryland? Pans Ram also claimed that once after serving time in Texas, he went to our as Mexico in the winter of nineteen ten and attempted to enlist in the federal Mexican army. But for whatever reason he did not enlist. I'm moving from Juarez to del Rio. Texas. By train, he got off in a small town of El Paso. Whereabout miles south of outside of town. He claimed to have abducted assaulted, kicked and strangled. A man and then stole thirty five dollars from him. In the summer of nineteen eleven. Carl using the name of Jefferson Davis which is interesting. A self stole a bike. In Fresno, he was caught and was given six months in the county jail where he promptly escaped. From nineteen, thirteen to nineteen. Fifteen. Carl's arrested five times in five different states escaping from jail each time. A few of those arrests were made when he passed through the Appalachian Mountains during his nationwide travels. Now on June first nineteen fifteen he broke into and robbed House in Oregon. And he was arrested when he got caught trying to sell what he stole. He was given seven years in the Oregon. State. Penitentiary. And he lied about his age saying he was thirty years old and he was born in Alabama. He was honest about his occupation now stating that it was faith. When he was asked. At, that time the warden was Mr Harry Minto. who was a strong believer in harsh management of his inmates including beatings in isolation? Carl stated that he swore he would never do that seven years and I defied the warden on all of his officers to make me. Now. He did serve quite a bit of time there in while serving at time he was able to help a fellow inmate, an auto hooker escape from prison, and while attempting to evade recapture. Hooker ended up killing the warden Minto while there he was disciplined many times while at the state prison. Including sixty one days in solitary confinement. Before actually escaping September eighteenth nineteen seventeen. After to shoot house. And assorted runnings Injuries to various individuals. He was recaptured in return to prison on May twelfth. Nineteen eighteen. But then again, he escaped once more by sawing through the bars of his cell in caught a freight train heading east. That point he began going by the name of John O'Leary Shave. Golfers Mustache. And vowed he would never go back West after that. Now keeping to his old. Grudge. In August nineteen twenty. Carl broke into. Home of former President William Howard taft, whom Carl held responsible for his Leavenworth imprisonment. He stole large amount of jewelry in bonds as well as the president's Personal Colt. M Nineteen Eleven forty five caliber semi auto handgun he then began a murder spree that spanned eight years in multiple countries with the money stolen from taft. You bought a yacht. The. CASTA. And he lured sailors away from New York City bars got them drunk raped them and shot him with taps pistola dumped their bodies near the execution rocks light in long. Island sound. He claimed to have killed ten and all sailors. The the murder spree of sailors ended only when the Costa ran aground and sank near. Atlantic. City his last two potential victims escaping swimming to shore. On October Twenty Six nineteen twenty using the name again of John, O'Leary he was arrested in Stanford Connecticut for burglary and possession of a loaded handgun. Presidents nineteen eleven. In. Nineteen twenty one, he served six months in jail in Bridgeport Connecticut. After getting out. He caught ship to Africa landing in Angola. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, one. After. Bouncing around in Angola, for a while he became a form oil rigs there. And true to Carl's past history. He later burned the oil rig on out of mostly J- assure meanness. He's alleged to have while he was there raped and killed and eleven or twelve year old boy. In his confession to that murder he wrote his brains were coming out of his ears when I left him. And he will never be any deader. Most evil wouldn't you think? Well, and Angola is business projects weren't super successful. This sometimes, of course comes when burn down the business you're working for. Not to mention killing off your employees. I you see when he decided to come back to United States. Right before he left, Carl hired six of his workers from the oil rigs, take him on a crocodile on an expedition by boat to see the country before he left. After putting the boat in the water and starting their journey crocodile hunting. Carl shot all them and watch the crocodiles feed on their bodies. No one ever saw those men again. After returning to the United States. Cans Ram stated that he raped and killed two small boys beating to death with a rock in Salem Massachusetts and strangling the other. Later that same year in New Haven Massachusetts. In interesting to notice that, he was able to recall the exact dates of many of his killings and put that into his autobiography. Carl claim that in June nineteen twenty-three, he shot a man with thirty eight pistol. He has stolen from yacht which belonged to the police chief of New Rochelle new. York. A different police chief than he's house broken into. Under the name of O'Leary once again in June. Nineteen twenty three, he was arrested in New York. Continuing his regular procedures he attempted to break out. And in one jailbreak attempt that was unsuccessful, he picked up course new charges. Were locked up that time. He was able to con his lawyer by giving him signing the title. Of. A. STOLEN In return for his attorney giving him wore bailing him out. Then, of course, Carl gets skipped on the bail on the but was later confiscated by police. And, that attorney learned inexpensive lessons. No doubt. On August Twenty Six nineteen twenty three again using the alias of. John O'Leary. Carl was arrested in Larchmont New, York after breaking into a train depot. And was given five years imprisonment. Now. While in County jail confessed being a Jeff Baldwin subject currently wanted in. Oregon. Three months later, he was imprisoned at Clinton prison in New York. State And released in nineteen twenty. Eight. And he has fought to have killed somebody in Maryland that summer. Now August Thirtieth Nineteen, twenty eight. He was once more arrested in Baltimore Maryland for Washington DC, burglary. Stealing a simple radio and jewelry from the home of the dentist. When arrested me voluntarily confessed to killing three young boys. The one in Salem Massachusetts one in Connecticut in third in Philadelphia. The nineteen twenty eight Philadelphia victim was identified as Alexander. Lezak a fourteen year. Old newsboy. Carl later wrote that he had also contemplated a mass killing using poison in the city's water supply most likely arsenic. Now. There is some documentation some writings out there. That says the Carl actually tried that. But in his own confessions he. admitted that he only. Contemplated it. And didn't follow through with it mainly because he couldn't get much arsenic. He contemplated also sinking British warship in New York Harbor and an attempt to start a war between the united, states and England. Call received the twenty five year prison sentence and again Leavenworth penitentiary. He became inmate three, one, six, one, four. In an interview with the warden before he was actually given his cell. He told the warden I'll kill the first man that bothers me. And the word and of course, looking at his record and. took him at his word in gave Carl a solitary job in the prison laundry room. On June twentieth nineteen. Twenty. Nine. The Forman. A Mr Robert. Wonky of the prison laundry. Voiced his opinion to Carl about his work ethics, organs, ability and speed at his assigned job. And of course, Carl beat him to death with an iron. Bar. He was. Charged with homicide and sentenced to death. Now, for all, he had done and confessed to at various times in his. Even career. It took the killing of another inmate that got him the death penalty. Carl refused to allow his attorneys to appeal his sentence. And in response to offers from death penalty opponents and human rights activists at the time that wanted to intervene. Very, similar, we have today on. The only thanks you and your kind will ever get from me for your efforts on my behalf is that I wish you all had one neck. And that I had my hands on it. That's was Carl's reply to their assistance. Well. On. Death. Row. Carl was befriended by an officer by the name of Henry Lesser. In re passed away in nineteen, eighty three. Lesser. Would give Carl money or cigarettes or money to buy cigarettes while he was incarcerated in sitting on death row. Now Carl was so astonished by this one of kindness and selflessness that after. Lesser provided him with writing materials. Well lading execution. He wrote a detail summary of all his crimes and his no listrik philosophy. He made it clear in his writings. He did not regret any of the robbery St- murders, rapes, arsons that he had been involved in, and he would not repent for those crimes. In his own words he said. In My lifetime I have murdered twenty one human beings. I have committed thousands of burglaries, robberies, larcenies, arsons, and last but not least, I have committed sodomy assault on more than one thousand male human beings for all these things I am not in the least bit. Sorry. Also. In his own words he said. I had no conscience never believed in man God or the devil. I hate the whole damned human race. Car was hung. On September fifth? Nineteen thirty. At Leavenworth Prison As officers attempted to place a black hood, his head, he spat in the executioners face. When asked for any last words he responded? Yes. Hurry it up. You hoes her bastard I could kill a dozen men while you're screwing around. His grave. Leavenworth Penitentiary Cemetery. Is marked only with his prison number. Three, one, six, one, four. The guard that befriended him and provided. Caro with the writing. Material, lesser. He preserved. His letters in the autobiographical manuscript. Then spent the next four decades after retired in search of a publisher willing to print the material finally in nineteen seventy. It was released under the title killer, a Journal of murder. And before. Lesser passed away in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty. He donated all of the material to the San Diego State University, where they are housed as the coral pans rem papers. In the Malcolm a love library. Now, Carlos referred to by many as America's most sadistic serial killer. For eighteen long years he robbed raped and murdered from one city to the next, as well as several locations out of the United States. He is more than a dozen aliases. No one knew anything about him while he lived no one came close to guessing that all the brutal crimes that were committed. We're all done by a single man. Until November of nineteen twenty. Eight.

Damage related to climate change will only grow -- who's liable?
"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America financing clean energy initiatives and advancements in renewable energy and spurring innovation and the growth of environmentally focused companies it gets in Jobs Bank of America. NA member FDIC who pays for climate change damages I'm NPR chief meteorologist carbon in the in the atmosphere and then ties that amount of carbon in the atmosphere and warming to the increases in flooding ceiling fire victims how do you see individual consumers fitting into these lawsuits moving forward it's very difficult for individuals to have so how does the legal system tease out the climate change damage liability there at big piece of these lawsuits is the idea that the oil and gas companies in this round of lawsuits are states local governments are theories of public nuisance products liability and consumer protection laws and these are it basically says if someone has engaged in conduct that harms the public it's either state or local government for the most part who then brings lawsuits are the financial outlay that states and local governments have to deal with climate change so if we're talking about Minnesota let's say you would have increased knew about the impact of carbon on climate change and on severe weather is far back as the nineteen sixties and actually had a coordinated campaign level rise harm to species harm to crops I wanNA talk about California for a moment.

Narcissism Lessons, The War-Stopping Eclipse (w/ Dr. David Warmflash), and Toothed Tumors
"Hi, curiosity dot com to help you get smarter in just a few minutes. I'm Cody gov, and I'm Ashley Hamer today. You'll learn about what you can take away from narcissists to boost your professional and academic success and the groundbreaking and potentially life-saving discovery that came from studying tumors. They can grow teeth. Plus, you'll hear how the prediction of a solar eclipse helped end a war restore in Konami and leave an impact on some of history's greatest minds in the second installment of our moon, Monday miniseries. Let's aside some curiosity narcissism isn't just a psychological condition. It's a personality trait all of us have some degree of narcissism. And it turns out that you can actually use that to your advantage. Get ready to have your narcissists stereotype shattered and find out what you could actually learn from people who know how to harness their intern are cyst, according to a September twenty eighteen study from Queen's University, Belfast narcissists are likely to have a trait that's been closely linked to professional and academic success mental toughness. In a nutshell mental toughness is the mind's ability to hold onto its sense of self and self worth when things aren't going. So great the Boston like your idea. No worries. He'll love the next one. And who cares? What he thinks. Anyway, you're obviously a genius. It's easy to see narcissists slipping into that pattern and thinking, and it's just as easy to see how that kind of thinking could be a major benefit to a person's career to be clear. The study didn't look at people with narcissistic personality disorder. It just looked at participants with high but normal narcissism scores, and that was where they found the people with the highest mental toughness. Now, we're not saying that narcissism is a good thing or that you should try to, cultivate, it like it's a skill. I also can't emphasize enough that a clinical diagnosis of narcissistic personality disorder is a real thing that can cause lots of complications in your life. Even if you're not a clinical narcissist narcissism is part of the so called dark triad of personality traits for a reason along with psychopathy and Maquiavelian ISM. You probably don't. I wanna take on more narcissism than you naturally to. But if you regularly doubt yourself, it might not hurt to observe how the more self-centered people in your life think and borrow a little bit of that attitude at work. It's time for the second installment in our moon, Monday miniseries. We're will teach you how the history of the moon has affected the world in some way last week. We talked about how the Babylonians figured out Saros cycles, which basically predict how often is solar eclipse will appear who cares. Right. We'll thanks to this information. The Greek philosopher theories predicted a solar eclipse that helped end a war restore and economy and build a philosophy school that trained a couple of history's greatest minds. Here's the story from Dr David warm flash. But his terms of the eclipse cycles dailies warned about this and in five eighty five BC during a war between a couple at least two Pires a third one involved, but one of one empire was demeans. Empires. Meade's sort of in the area of Persia and the other word the lydian empire that control the big chunk of Asia Minor, including a Yoni. So the Iowans were Greeks who had been there for centuries because the Dorian invasion had pushed everybody all over the place, and they were living along the coast of Asia. Minor Annalong those those islands along the coast and the Libyan's were controlling them. And they wanted it into the war, and knowing these Sarah cycles from the Babylonians Staley's was able who is also a mathematician, he was able to calculate the likelihood of an eclipse. So he probably didn't know the moon was getting in front of the sun announcements causing it. But he knew the mathematics of it. And he turned out. He was he ended up being ri-, and he went to the commanders of both sides, and he told them the gods are really upset about this war. We need an end to the war and to to demonstrate that the. Gods are gonna dark in the sky on Tuesday at three o'clock, whatever and he was he got a little bit lucky because these cycles don't predict the eclipses that note map precisely but a little bit of luck. Also, got it. Right. Whoa. This guy knows what he's talking about. And the war came to an end and Staley's was also able to negotiate pretty good terms for the Onians, which is good for Iranian business. 'cause basically, I only were business people. They were maritime traders all that dailies himself had a certain amount of celebrity status because he predicted a really good olive harvest foreign urine. So he bought up all the olive presses. And you got to be really rich guy because he had this money, and you had this fame by ending the war and that helped him establish a philosophy school on the island of militants in people were flocking to come and study with him and some people eat that we hear about were students affair. Phillies address, for instance, puts agress was one of daily students. Eventually had a really didn't agree with dailies whole approach to how how you obtain knowledge, but he started out as when if they Lee students yet another student in accent Mander who is the earliest person, we know of to come up with an volition area theory about the emergence of humanity from fish that we started out fish, and he reason that fish don't need their their their mothers just come out of an egg in they either get eaten or they could survive. And so he reasoned that human infants couldn't have reclaim them in humans all time because infants can't survive in the first human would have be an instant in, you know, the chicken and egg problem. So he he reason it back to back to fish next week will jump ahead to the middle ages. And here fascinating story about the origins of astronomy. In the meantime, Dr David warm flashes. Book is called moon in illustrated history in you. Can pre-order it on Amazon today? You can also follow him on Twitter at cosmic. Evolution will include links to all that and more in today's show notes. Our last story today is a little creepy. But biology isn't always pretty and on the plus side. The next subject is mostly benign, and it leads scientists to a groundbreaking and lifesaving discovery. But still the thing is tumors can grow teeth. I told you it wasn't pretty it's horrifying. It. Really? Is. I are poor designer are poor designer messaged me. And was like, oh, gosh, I googled this to see if maybe I should include an image and a horrified myself, and I feel very bad that I didn't warn her. You have a weak stomach, never Google anything medical. No. Yeah. They're pretty bad. These are particularly bad, but we won't get too graphic with this audio story. Right. So I'm talking about tumors called territories which is Greek roughly for monstrous tumors, no kidding territory. Was haven't just been known to sprout teeth? They've been known to contain all kinds of tissue bone, muscle hair and elements of a nervous system, a mature territory can be big and painful and even persistent. But again, they're typically not dangerous. It's immature territory that have the most potential to develop into cancer. That's where the cells haven't yet turned into multiple tissue types. The reason territory can grow teeth is through the normal. Magic of germ cells. That's the type of stem cell that turns into an egg or sperm cell, which can then produce a fetus germ cells are what scientists call pluripotent, which means they can produce all different types of tissue when germ cells go rogue though territory arise. In fact, all it takes is one germ cell going rogue in the nineteen sixties embryologist berry pierced discovered that the root of every territory is a single germ cell which produces a constant stream of new and varied cells that accumulate into a to mess mass. Meanwhile, all the other cells in the tumor lead normal cellular lives and eventually die off. In other words territory are a case of a bad apple ruining the bunch back to the silver lining of this story, though, Pierce's research ended up with implications beyond these tooth tumors. That discovery of pluripotency the discovery that one cell could create many types of cells, eventually led to the discovery of stem cells in the nineteen eighty s that's a breakthrough with massive implications from the key to cloning animals to growing isolated human organs like hearts for people who need transplants. So in the end territory has really aren't as horrifying as they sound. Just like you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. Maybe you shouldn't judge a tumor by its teeth hair. And. Fully developed eyeball disgusting. Read about today's stories and more on curiosity dot com.

I guess he did an interview for podcast. He did an interview for a podcast. Like I said but he I don't I don't know is very being very supportive of his son There there was a photograph of the family at Thanksgiving where the sun had like. Annalong acrylics on and people were like. Why is he wearing a halter top and Dwayne Wade was like fuck off and now he's kind of being a little bit more open about it and you know that's too you want to be as a father I would? I would say also his eldest sons I air posted. This is something on instagram. After that and it was like we didn't ask for Y'all opinion. Br Yeah that's nice.

So steph curry a His photo there is a photo that leaked. I haven't seen it yet yet. I emphasize it's going to look at No I don't really care like I never looked at the opening photos because that feels like weird and exploitative but on this one I'd be Keta look at it because it's just steph. Curry started to look at it. And then you're like you're like wait what am I to. That's it's true that's also true. I probably won't go out of my way to look at it. I am just curious. What the what? The big deal is Like Y Y why it is number one trending story the Steph curry photo leak. What we know you? uh-huh caps. USA Today is about it. I don't get. What is the photo I think it's a nude photograph of him? Look it up hold on Happy so yeah I don't know we'll we'll be tracking the story. I guess I don't know what Lake it's people are saying.

My Penis and I woke up to the alarming disturbance of a video Jio clip today as his defense attorney. Were prepared tonight. Any slow strokes or lack of killing the pussy. A long list of satisfied women can attest to but the real punch light is seeing people who never fucked him rate him all right. All Right Eddie. Murphy is trending Because because he will be hosting. SNL This weekend That's GonNa be fun. Yeah as it's been a little weird this season isn't snl had like had that fortieth anniversary show where he came back and like refused to tell jokes. I'm curious what what does is going to be like but people are pointing out. You Know Eddie Murphy saved Saturday night live back in the eighties. I mean Saturday night. Live wouldn't exist without Eddie Murphy. Still like because they like they had the original cast west than the original cast went away. They had like this weird all-star lineup learn michaels left and they like put together like billy crystal and all these different people And that that didn't quite work out and so they were kind of trying to figure out what they're gonNa do with it and then Eddie Murphy came through and was like the. MVP is like the Michael Jordan canal to eighteen or nineteen and just the funniest human being on the planet. So hopefully hopefully it works out. Hopefully it's funny I can't imagine that would be a difficult reading assignment to be like all right. This famously reclusive comedy genius. This is here for the week. How are we going to pitch sketches and also he has all these famous sketches from before? Like how how do you do that. It'll be tough and Redo every single one seen by shop by shop for sure. I just wonder if like the theme of the season. which kind of seems like? They've been censored a bit. We'll continue murphy they're censor it. Feels like it's been like it. Feels like they've taken it down a notch specifically like we update. It feels like they can't say what they really thinking game. You think it's because Colin Jost is the love of Scarlett Johansson's life and Oh yeah let's blame scarlet graceland. Joe Yeah you know she she probably who's to say but anyways Up Next Airbud is trending hell. Oh yeah well what's going on They apparently What had happened was is that Airbud is real? Air Boat is a police dog. I usually don't stand. Police called Airbud Jesse. Now okay. Canine do then. I'm out. Yeah never meant Moving living on. It's a police dog.

That's very cool dogs all right. I don't like that at all dogs. don't care for that's like like like I would say again. The world's greatest dogs on Disney plus. It's a police shooting and then a police dogging I guess. A police dog is better than Josh shooting. But that the dog definitely is athletic as yeah violent they shouldn't put this image this video out. Yeah they have no standards also. The dog like breaks through glass. Isn't that dangerous for the dog like we'll get caught up. There's a whole that they shot in the window and then the dog jumps Sir guy was going anywhere necessary. They looked like walking police. Yeah Yeah Yeah. He had his arms up and they're like get them boy and then the dog just J. through the window and like attacked him which seems unnecessary would agree with that Oh my God and it probably got cut by glass in the process. You know what this is. I don't like this. I do not like this at all. ACE attack no no. He doesn't do anything attacks. The Mike Lynch John us to Gupo where we at Doug how much Shit all right.

Org always fun to visit with Travis Ford weekly and we get the chance to visit with a coach that sees his team get their eighth win there now. Eight one after maybe the most impressive win over the two lane club in an Arizona and coach. You're just flat out shooting the basketball so well. These had to be one of the most complete victories had this year it is Dan By a wide margin. Far as how we played for forty minutes. it's the most consistent. We've played on both ends as far as offense defensive the most consistent we've been from one half to the next and it couldn't couldn't come at a better time because the two lane team that we played. I think as a really really good basketball team. They came into the game. Seven and one at some really good wins under through their belt. Only loss was to Mississippi state. So you know from that standpoint We played really well. Guess Fair. Very Good Competition I. I thought we passed the ball really well. We took care of the ball and it was easy to you. Know to really look at all the threes we made up. That was a big reason. We we were able able to have success but we also defended. We held them to thirty nine percent from the field which They have four offensive players. That are as good as anyway point when you bring a kid into the program coach. I'm curious like with You know your guard that goes out and just gets it and and and rebounds and you say well that could be you you be Marcus smart with Gibson Jefferson D. Say Hey could be this type of player this type of shooter do you. You ever do that kind of thing to not to put pressure on a kid but to tell them. Hey this is how good you can be. Oh we go we all the time in the in in one man or we do it. We usually try to pick an NBA player. Either present or even pass that They might know and we tell them you know Patty. You're game after this guy and then we'll go get a bunch of film film and show this particular player You know a guy like Gibson Jameson we've used. Jj As a kind of a a player that he could you know be like to an extent a guy that can really shoot it there on the floor one or two or three times shot. Fake Nick Scott. Good Body. Both you know good size Jj's Annalong NBA career In but we do that a lot in terms herbs of trying to compare guys to MBA guys and have them study Those players as much as possible. How about then with a guy like assign French? Who'd he tried to compare him to a son? We've used Kenneth Farid and as an example I think You know he may not shoot threes as much as draymond green does but draymond green a guy that brings the ball up. Assam brings of all up for us a lot You know an undersized athletic attic physical player But those are two guys that we've used You know for us on what this week coach because it's It's not all basketball when you're at this level it's also in the classroom making sure guys get their work done You've got the Christmas holiday coming up. So what what is this number one been like this week and really the the two weeks where you've got only two games in about you know fourteen fifteen days. Yeah IT'S A. It's an interesting time. I'm to ballots Your schedule As far as Academics CATACOMB I. You know the finals are very difficult. It's very three Mentally draining time. A lot of stressful time for our players for is in the classroom. Not only that. They're taking their finals but not only their finals finals. But they're getting caught up on you know we might have been traveling and they missed a test or we have been traveling and they missed a quiz that they might have to make up or whatever it may be. So they're getting caught it up here in this last week and taking their final so that's gotta take precedence right now. And for US coaches. We fit in practice We gave them off off on Monday And then you just Kinda fit practice when you can. And then as coaches were getting out recruiting a lot during this time high schools around Saint Louis have started up Most everybody started this week So it's a it's a great time for us to get out and see some SASON players see some young guys is But it's a really busy time but it's a very hectic As far as trying to just your schedule's not very fluid. There's not a specific not every day that we're practicing It could be different times because of finals so You helps you get a lot done but really really you. Don't get a lot done on the court. It's it's a little more difficult. You are relentless recruiter your gym rat. You love this game. You grew up around this game with your father her which I'm going to ask you about here in just a moment. But what is the recruiting. Liked Travis for it I mean. Are you writing you know all of a sudden you know notes in emails emails in tax and calls and what you can do with the NC double A.. Regulations all those things. What is it like this time of year to try to recruit? Well it's all the the above as you just mentioned it's the phone calls. It's texting You know The players that you're allowed to text in Col- It's trying to get player especially especially local players in for unofficial visits. Bring them over. Spent some time Here on campus with us Have a watch practice Come to gain some. We are at home And then obviously were out Right now pretty much. There's much whether it be hitting getting a local practice or games which I'll be doing tonight. going to a couple of different games you try to hit. Maybe a half of each game. I'm just to let you know certain players know you're there. You're there supporting them That's a great thing about the only time in my coaching career. That I've been able to do that in a city where you don't have to go dry two three hours four hours To Watch great basketball I can catch multiple games in one night And say some really good players. You see some really good teams which makes it very convenient? What's been your impression coach of the talent alad in the surrounding area? I mean you're familiar with Missouri. You're familiar with the mid West but in particular Saint Louis now that you're you're headquartered here. What what what do you think of the Highschool Talat? Why did spin disposal that you've seen so far and some of those kids you being able to get highly impressed highly always knew saint? Louis Develop felt great players You grew up knowing you know watching a lot of great Saint Louis players whether it be college or the NBA But even Lourdes press wants. I've been living here now for three four years not only with the individual talent but been very impressed with the coaching at the high school level. A level it's really good in it really is Very impressive The other thing I enjoy about high school basketball here is I. I miss this is not. This doesn't happen everywhere. They still get great crowds at every game. There are still great rivalries in Saint Louis People Care about high school basketball and they still support high school basketball That's not the case everywhere anymore. Probably there's very few places in the country That support high school basketball with the fans support. The crowd support As much as Saint Louis Does your dad sits behind you and and I'm curious when you're coaching a game. How often do you look at Dadan? You gave that look at each other like are you kidding me or hey that was a nice player. That surprise fries me how. How often does it happen in a game? Not Very alternate. I'm not saying it never has but not very often You know I'm so locked into the game aimed usually but you know he does try to make it he and my mom try to make as many games as possible They live about two and a half hours From here in Kentucky They try to travel when they can't so that's always nice they've always been very involved in You Know My dad taught me agape basketball Always give him all the credit He taught me as a player. The fundamentals how to play correctly he was a college player and went on to be a very successful high school coach And you know. He taught me the Game Basketball Plain. Simple I've taken a lot from coach Pitino and Coach through it from Missouri for system. Type things practice days but as somebody who taught me the game I give my dad all the credit finally coach. So you've got a tough one coming up. Don't you with Auburn. Yes I mean I don't know if it can lead gets any cover Right now I think there's fourth or fifth in the country. RPI So there's not many teams above them. I think the ranked twelfth in America the AP poll was of today You know watching them on film they. I don't have many weaknesses. This is a team that went to the final four last year in lost a couple of players but they might be even better than they were last year. Here They can score. They got inside outside game We think we're good rebound team. They out rebound their opponents by ten a game we rebound hours by eight a game They got probably border five impudent will be an NBA the next one chimp. Two three years on their eighteen Very impressive team undefeated right now. They haven't lost a game. You know we we've got our hands full no doubt But it's a great eight opportunity for our team. It's a great challenge for our team but we have a lot of respect for Auburn and we understand just how good a basketball team. They are always great to catch chap coach will We'll do this again next week. And Good luck in the upcoming game.

New York magazine
"This week on the stack we speak to the new editor of new york magazine david housego. It tells me all about their exciting new kover plus. We speak to our women in l._a. Lada habil on the latest problems facing the los angeles times and finally our hong kong bureau chief. James chambas explains links how the main hong kong dailies are covering the protests. Stay tuned for this week's edition of the stack from derry housing london. This is the stack thirty minutes of print industry analysis. I am finland. It was to prochet cool coming up on the show. We'll look at the problems that l. a. daily the los angeles times is is facing with its circulation numbers plus. We review the printed press in hong kong but before that i spoke to the editor of one of my favourite titles new york mark magazine since early april they have a new editor in chief. David hostile in the latest issue ivanka trump is on the kover a major story where the magazine teen spoke to about sixty friends or colleagues of ivanka well david tells me all about it and his plans for the clinic title and working as an editor of the magazine for about twelve years and so have had a role in its evolution through most of my predecessors assessors time here at a moss was the editor in chief of the magazine for fifteen years and i was editing in the culture pages of the magazine and then a features editor deputy editor. The last few years was working with with adam and the c._e._o. Of the company think about new editorial projects basically which ranged from podcast in film and television to launching the strategist new digital vertical etc etc so i sort of had a lot of experience with different parts of the editorial operation operation which isn't to say it was truly prepared prepared for the job of being the chief because that's a really entirely different thing in a way and it's been <hes> incredibly thrilling. I guess over the last four months or so to be you know getting my groundings a little bit and understanding how to have best around this place well and one thing for sure thinks he became the editors as well. You continue. I mean each kover over story of new york topics for manu opinion pieces. You know that that goes around the world. Let's talk about the latest issue a with ivanka trump. I love the kover over by the way there's a kind of a tabloid headline ivanka to city drop the cheek has tell us about this massive story because apparently you guys spoke to about sixty over friends and colleagues right yeah yeah sure so one thing about the covers that it's a it's a reference to a famous amos cover the daily news that said ford to city drop dead right at the at the brink of the city's possible bankruptcy in seventies and and president ford dan in washington was not willing to bail us out so we were spending a lot of time thinking about how to put our avant good story on the cover and what was the message we wanted to communicate and it was really after hours and hours of thinking through different ideas when one of our editors nery malone came up with that referenced <unk> cover clicked but you know figuring out what the cover is really the last stage of an editorial process in this one was more extensive than most because we were working the writer of the story <unk> gratis on a podcast together so we as a magazine decided to launch a podcast series series called tabloid in which season we would go deep in an employ all the techniques long form storytelling on one particular tablet story so our first season we decided that ivanka trump and especially her childhood in who has <unk> developed from really this kind of crucible of tabloid glare with their parents divorce navies that would be really interesting subject for the magazine to consider for vanessa particularly consider vanessa's generation of evacuate also grew up in the city and had been paying attention her for decades so we commission didn't vanessa to do both a long form podcast annalong piece of written journalism and both of them launched out into the world this this week. It was really exciting for the first time that we'd we'd sort of done that kind of podcasting and it really raised our ambitions. Thanks for the reporting process piece. That's amazing <unk> from podcast too so there will be other other episodes of of the special yeah so so it's on a platform called luminary and this is an eight episode season with two bonus episodes so i eight or ten hour. Were you want to call it and then hopefully in you know another season will launch another batch about an entirely different subject david. Do you consider well. I have a few my say as but do you consider new york very much a political magazine as well not only just entertainment or c._t. Not magazine oh yeah politics always been one of our guiding curiosities in new york magazine is just over fifty years old and when it launched in nineteen sixty eight it was always at both about the city and really was the first city magazine and beyond the city eddie and it took a a new yorkers point of view about the world so from the very beginning we were sending writers like nora ephron down to washington to write about the nixon nixon administration. You know we've always had very strong background in reporting and commentary on politics on hollywood on on business in more recently silicon valley and that's you know it's really very important to me is the editor in chief to have balanced that feels right to me of authority over the covered new york city itself and a mandate to be writing and editing national magazine david. I have a question about your readership. I mean clearly. I presume your biggest. Market must be new york but what about around the u._s. Do you have a lot of people reading new york in on the west coast or denault in dallas yeah yeah absolutely i mean when when we talk about the magazine we are both print and digital magazine and and the vast majority of our readership is digital we have about fifty million people who read us every month and they come to us either through the front page age of enzymatic dot com or some of them come to us from one of the verticals that that make up <unk> new york is at as a general interest magazine the way we've we've we represent ourselves digitally is that we have these verticals the cut vulture grub street intelligence or the strategist that each look at eh a slice of of what are general interests are and all of the print magazine content is published on those verticals and it's you know certain in reader who's just a complete pop. Culture enthusiasts is spending most of her time on vulture. Let's say but it's also reading the political coverage that we are are publishing in the magazine in on intelligence or and in the cut and etc etc so all that is the preamble of those roughly fifty million readers. I i forget the exact number but something like ten or fifteen percent are in new york. It's really a national magazine and and it's you know to some extent in international magazine but we have more readers in california corner than we do in new york city taxi. I was just going to say there's also you know people like me. I leaving london which fund enough doesn't i don't see a magazine hearing during loan than you know talking about the city the way new york does it so you know. Perhaps that's one of the reasons why i decided to subscribe the magazine yeah. I really hope there's a reader who lives in in london earlier win or austin or chicago or los angeles etc etc etc etc who finds a commonality who really feels more in tune with those fellow readers. Maybe they do with someone who lives in our away away from them. It's a really it's a cosmopolitan point of view that i think we have and you know there's so much about new york. City that represents itself globally like the coverage coverage of brooklyn for instance artistic culture and what brooklyn represents there is a version of brooklyn in every city around the world and it just as a ah example of how were able to write about things that feel very local but that are actually globally resonant and then we're able to tackle you know the commission to boris johnson profile yesterday so we're able to contest jump round the world whenever we want so. It's it's really fortunate position that i think we're in and david my love but you know there's two of my favorite things of the magazine first of all the crossword i think is amazing. I live a how they're more mordon gordon references. I'm not gonna lie quite hard for me. I can't do crossword puzzles and look book as well yet but look book is really as a special place in my heart. It was one of the many inventions that came with the modern new york magazine the adama's in his staff in two thousand unfortunately five introduced to the world's and the concept then this is freely predating street photography street fashion but we were just noticing noticing people in new york walking down the street and ask them about their look that was sort of the concept of luck in one thing that i've been doing since april is expanding it over three repackages instead of one and always very being very intentional that we're we're setting up our photo shoot so that we can use the project that is a kind of anthropological study of the city so you know in a kind of obscure most recent example we send a look book which is to say we percents <unk> for in the reporter to the port authority which is the main bus station in new york city and specifically to door door with thirty two which is where the bus goes to a very specific area of upstate new york where a very kind of particular kind of new yorker has a weekend house or has a friend who has a weekend house and so the the <hes> photography that we did that day really added up to a portrait of a particular subset of new york and then you know we're doing very different shoot right now in <unk> spoil it but we're really taking the opportunity to see the city of new york in many different microcosm is as possible and finally to about that ivanka story. Do you expect any sort of reaction from her or hurting about the story. Which is you know. It's quite big yeah. You know i don't really i'm sure she's noticed it because i think they're actually she's. She's pretty press savvy and you talk to anybody who's in the business of writing or publishing about vodka and even though she won't talk on the record it's clear that sources that she was she was a useful source to pieces so she's. She's you know media savvy. We decided we didn't wanna play that game so even though she offered to be off the record sources. We didn't take that up. She's probably a bit unnerved because of the number of people we spoke folk to across your entire life to really try to build out a rich profile her am sure she's unhappy with the with the point of view of the piece which is pretty hard on her but that's fine. I don't really i don't i'm not really interested in her reaction. If there were anything wrong we're gonna correct it but there's been no response the white house to that effect that was david housego their editor in chief of new york magazine stain the u._s. Speak with our l._a. Bureau chief colada habile lou. This week discovered that l._a. Daily the los angeles times struggling to gain new subscribers to paper while kalat explains me a bit more about that and also gives me her overview of the state of new stance in the u._s. We heard directly from the newspapers executive editor a non pure stein that the newspaper is not performing exactly the way that they had hoped they wanted to double digital subscriptions up to three hundred thousand and he revealed at that first half of the year had been rather disappointing that while they added fifty thousand thousand digital subscriptions they had a significant number of cancellations during that same time which meant that increase was only about thirteen thousand so very much in far off the <hes> wanted goal which in some ways is quite a shame you see the success of the washington post the new york times in the east coast. I mean the west coast really needed a strong paper yeah it did and i think like there was so much there was so much hope and here in los angeles times new strategy exactly because of dot like how it would redefine the west coast as a media how were so many of the heavyweights just mentioned the boston globe the washington post wall street journal the new york times. They're all based on the east coast ended in a very specific area of the east coast that could only be beneficial for american the media for the american media landscape to have a counterweight on this side of the country because even if we look at further opt to the bay area the the san francisco chronicle can't read really measure up to the same level as well and clutter of course. You're you're from portugal and you were living here in london. How how did he change your immediate consumption especially for print media in the u._s. Because every time i go there by the way i love l. a. but it's quite hard to find a new stand or somewhere where you can buy the proper newspaper or a magazine right from my own experience. What i had to change mostly was not being able to find the newspaper every every day or a magazine every day. Just as i'd go for a little walk during my lunch hour mainly because there's not much walking involved unless unless you really plan for it and also because you know what we in europe i guess conceive as a traditional news. Kiosk is not really a concept. That's very much explored here now so you can find some newspaper kiosks. If you have to plan your day around it now what is easy to find here are those little newspaper boots sponsored answered by each papers to in this case you'll find the los angeles times newspaper dispensary type thing all the side of the road sometimes outside supermarkets or buy gas stations and convenience stores where you can just put some coins and get your newspaper for the day and usually you have at least two or three different newspapers vapors on offer. You'll always los angeles times then the regional newspaper from where you are in the city and then another one that might be free and that's probably the easiest and quickest way that people get access to the newspaper as there are stopping by three fuel their car or just to pop into your convenience store to grab some coffee or something finally want to actually. Are you reading during the weekend. Are you reading the los angeles times or is there any american magazines things that you find it quite cool. I started reading. The los angeles times for sure way more since i've been here but it's interesting with this story as well because i've been reading most of it online through a subscription so i guess some one of the thirty thousand dave netted this year but it's exactly because of the convenience of it all and i guess that's why i find this story so surprising because i think in a city like los angeles it does make more sense to be reading a newspaper of this caliber online. If you cannot plan your day either to go and pick it up yourself or to have it delivered to your door. Thank you aw to home now. Our bureau chief there. James chambers have been covering the protests here the whole week at monaco twenty four for the stack. I spoke with in about how the main papers in hong kong are covering the protests and how fake news is affecting the way stories are being reported. This has been going on over nine weeks now. In hong kong so it's been a very active time for the press in the media in hong kong take these protests have been going on throughout the weekends and long into the evening and we've all been kept very busy in front of journalists point of view. It's a very interesting exciting exciting time to be in hong kong because it's very lively. It's very important debate. That's going on there and there's a lot of stories to be covered from that point of view a very interesting in taipei hong kong but obviously there's a lot of different angles. There's a lot of different <hes> stories to be told. Hong kong has got a very deep rover historic. The media landscape is a lot of newspapers. It's a hub footprint on a daily basis. The pumping out loads of different newspapers you see newspaper distributors all around the city a a lot of people sitting down there reading newspapers on obviously even though it's august and this is traditionally the time when more <hes> silly in terms of of the news it's actually every day. This important story is being pushed out so this is china morning. Post is obviously the main english language newspaper and in terms of newspapers the irish get the lowdown on. What's what's going on it. It's certainly the one i go to every day and that's got very interesting recent history because a few years ago it was bought by jack ma who's obviously mainland chinese. He's and he's the founder of alibaba there was a lot of people who are nervous in hong kong that his ownership of it would lead to essentially self censorship and pulling stories that were critical of beijing asia and brought to the english language community in hong kong. That was the the main newspaper that they went to more of a kind of liberal and unbiased angle. What's actually turned is. That's probably not not the case. It's always hard with self sense. You never know what story they're not covering just by the definition but actually in terms of this latest protests such imposed on this off offer being very active then news room is very well respected and they've got some grey hairs and old heads in there who is still keeping the flame going from the old days at least from from my point of view. I think coverage has been very robust. It's being very fair and balanced to to both sides you know i think it would be a bit unfair to criticize is them and actually what is interesting is. The protesters themselves haven't really been turning on the south china morning. Post certain media companies in hong kong who've been seen as too pro government pro. Police have actually reporters and the cars and vans have been targeted by protests. This is which nobody wants to see in terms of how the is covering. Maybe indication that bad. Journalists seemed to be <hes> respect both sides. Tell me the names of perhaps other papers. Is that offer this more pro-beijing coverage as well. Are they popular when it comes to sales as well. I guess the leading chinese-language newspaper is one called old ming pao. That's very popular. It's huge circulation in what is still quite small city that was historically quite a liberal newspaper paper to but over the years has been growing concerns that beijing is being able to assert its authority control over that newspaper more and more that have been certain certain instance in last few years where editors have been attacked or fired for writing stories or letting stories go through a publishing stories that have been being critical of beijing there was one guy who's who's actually stabbed because he's related to his story that looked into the chinese leadership and then he was later sacked for publishing something about the panama papers which also also covered the chinese leadership ming pao published an editorial early on in the protests in june to advocate labeling these protests as a riots now whether so these protests are riots on autism has been very important because if it determines then how the the people involved with people arrested can be prosecuted and they face up to ten years in jail if you're involved the riots to call it a riot is the towing the government and the pro beijing line of what was interesting is that staff at the newspaper issued their own open in letter criticizing that editorial and saying that it's to kind of biased supra-government and it doesn't represent the frontline news reporting. There's this tussle the inside ming pao. That's been going on for a few years now. Between i guess the ownership and the editorial which is more biased towards beijing and then actually many of the staff who worked at these protests. I've got a lot of support from across hong kong and that's reflected in the newsroom as well so a lot of newspapers all having these internal tussles finally james so just like to ask you. I mean you know we talk a lot about fake news in the last years. Is that something we're seeing in hong kong in general not only imprint <hes> <hes> especially in relation to the protests fake news is becoming a huge issue with these protests. The first concern is just the rumors that fly around around <hes> the these ridiculous ones about how the government was going to introduce a curfew popular one is that some of the the police saw all the thugs involved <music>. Are you know mainland army officers or police <hes> they've also suggested that carolina chief executive has taken this time to go on holiday the all those things a laughable but what's kind of dangerous element is that these rooms fake news has a as an impact on what people believe in terms of things that actually do happen. One of the big events that happened recently was on the eve of on the anti-government protests. The police raided this protest house and found some what they said was bomb-making material. Now that's very worrying. If if there is some kind of renegade protester who was planning to detonate a bomb i mean that would cause untold deaths in hong kong but the question is <music> who believes that who believe what the police is saying so this. This story is being reported but there's a lotta doubt about whether it's accurate and a lot of media who lead lean towards democracy received protests side didn't even report it as a lot of fake news. Real news get sucked in <hes> an an and there's a lotta doubt about what's what you can believe and what you can't so <hes>. I think that's this danger about these things that was james.

Bengals open up 2019 OTAs; Offensive line has new look
"Everyone. Happy Monday to you. This is Anthony cincy, jungled dot com, and the orange and black insider Bengals podcast. I hope you had a great weekend, and I hope your week is off to a great start. The week is off to a big start for the Cincinnati Bengals as well, because they are kicking off their OTA's, their organiz team activties, which are usually deemed, quote unquote, or in the past, they used they usually were deemed, quote unquote, voluntary. But they are not so much voluntary now and you know, most of the team is air, and they are working out. And obviously, this is a big big set of practices because it's the first unders actor in his new staff in with it. Come a couple of big moves. And of course, there's already a some questions being asked both on this Facebook, live and really amongst all Bengals fans given some news that took place in that news that took place on Monday. Day that was a big one had to do with their first round pick and a couple of veteran offense of Lyman. So the first round pick Joan Williams with the Bengals are very high on Joan Williams lined up as the team starting left tackle in these activities on Monday. Now what they did obviously, if you remember correctly, the Bengals made a big trade last year, figuratively, and literally for cordy Glenn, the left tackle. He was with the Buffalo Bills. He had some experience in college playing guard and tackle. So the Bengals kicked him inside to left guard. Joan Williams is at left tackle, Bobby heart is at right tackle, so you look at that, and you say, okay, well, you know, there could be some improvements. There, obviously, right? The big question is right tackle in the big question is Clint Boling? Everybody is asking now what's going to happen to clean, bowling with this shuffling up of the offense of line? A lot of people think he is out the door. I personally do not believe that now I probably. In the minority in thinking that, but I think that Clint bowling is going to stick around. He's got one year left on his contract. I believe the cap hit is under six million or so off the double check that, but he's, he's got a manageable. Cap it. And he is one of if not the best current offensive line on the Bengals roster. The Bengals opted to resign him years back instead of Kevin Zeitler. They thought he was more affordable. And so he's been on their team. And really, he's played well he's, he's shuffled around a couple of different spots on the line, including left tackle, right tackle. He's he's helped out at a couple of different spots. This is the last year of his contract, as I mentioned, and yes, correct his cap. It is just under six million five point seven five this year. I think he plays out the last year of his contract. What a lot of people are overlooking is that bowling sat out today's practice at with with an undisclosed injury. He's rehabbing an undisclosed injury. So I think that this lineup that we saw Joan Williams at left tackle, cordy, Glenn, Aleph guard Bobby Hart at right tackle. I think that, that. At configuration is going to a could change and Zack Taylor noted to the Cincinnati media today that this is a fluid situation, who they have out there, starting today at the end of may is going to be different than or could be different than what they tried out week one against the Seattle Seahawks in Seattle. So there's a lot to keep tabs on here. Clint Boling obviously his futures up near. We'll see I personally, I think I'm in the minority. I think he stays. I think they hang on him for one more year, especially with so many new faces on the offensive line. He's been the mainstay. He's a versatile guy. He's a Ford -able and, you know, I think I think he's, he's going to stay the fine a place form what that is. I don't know. Perhaps, the idea is cordy Glenn, then shuffles over the right tackle and Clint bowling is the is the left guard once again, perhaps Clint bowling is, you're right tackle, and, and, you know, you go with the cordy Glenn inside. John. On the outside. We will see I thought it was telling the Joe, excuse me. Cordy. Glenn had apparently a conversation with Jim Turner, the new offense of line coach. And he said something to the to the effect of we had a man talk and guard is going to be where I'm going to play. And you know, that's, that's kind of that. So. Cordy glenn. He may he he's getting left tackle money to play left guard potentially this year. Now, again, in case you are wondering he has kind of a hefty contract, but Cincinnati does have a bit manageable. Because, you know, some of the guaranteed money was eaten up by buffalo, when he signed a deal a couple of years ago, but he is do nine point two five million this year in nine point five million next year being cordy Glenn. And then he is an unrestricted free agent in twenty twenty one clip. Bowling's thirty years old, cordy Glenn who played with bowling in college is twenty nine years old. So I mean they're not spring chickens, but the Bengals have allowed to figure out your because they invested a lot in the offense of line over the past two off seasons. Glenn being one of them. Obviously, this one tweet trade for with a first round swapping of picks in the Buffalo Bills were obviously. Volved there, they invested in a first round pick and Billy price last year this year they resigned. Alex. Redman they resigned trae Hopkins. They re-signed Bobby Hart. They bring in John Miller guard. They draft Jona William. So they, it's a good thing because it's offensive line is struggled over the past couple of seasons and really since Andrew Whitworth and Kevin Zeitler left. But it's also you know I it's leaving a lot of things up in the air right now. But, you know, the Bengals seem to have some talented guys, it's more about finding the best five guys in really finding the best five guys that also play into a position that they are comfortable with you can't just throw guys out there in, in, in positions that they're not fully comfortable with. So I see to Hugh each us in going to right tackle, or he is going to ride the bench. I really don't think he's going to sit. I think that the choice comes down to you stardom or you cut him my thing as it always is with the Cincinnati Bengals. If you're going to cut him. Valuable player again one of as we sit here today. One of the best offensive limited, they currently have if you're going to cut him. Okay. I guess I'm not I would not be a fan of that. But where what are you gonna use that money onto make your team better in another spot where is that money going to go because saving it in not using it isn't going to really help this team, perhaps it's cap relief to extend AJ green and Tyler Boyd for the next, you know, handful of years coming up here. Maybe that's the plan. I don't I personally don't know if you know, five point seven five million is, is going to, you know. Cripple this team one way or the other. But perhaps that's what they're thinking. I just think I don't think they're keeping bowling around as a backup. I think he's either going to start or he's going to be I think he sticks around. I think he starts. It's just a matter of where, and I think they'll probably will probably see more experiments with Glenn at right tackle. This is Anthony Gazeta. Cincy jungle dot com. The orange black insider Bengals podcast, Bengals opened up a OTA's this week, and this Monday and will be continuing to do some work the rest of this week in it's our first look at some intensive somewhat intensive activities and practices by the Bengals in the Zac, Taylor era. One other thing that I thought was very interesting. Coming out of this was, it was a vague tweet, albeit, but it was something that I thought pointed into a positive direction in. That's John Ross. John ross. Put out a tweet talking about his confidence level kind of being back and it was actually on Monday after the practices ended. So, you know, I think I think you have to kinda take some take it with a little bit with a great grain of salt. I suppose, but different kind of confidence now is what he tweeted out earlier on Monday, which is interesting. I think obviously that points to his being in Marvin Lewis doghouse for the first couple of years of his career, probably being healthy probably playing in a system that is more akin to his strengths and getting him the ball in ways that he's more comfortable with again. I said he's healthy. He did sit out some workouts previously because of a minor injury. But, you know, you have to like the fact that he's in a better head space, at least that you can from what you can tell from. A five word tweet after the first day of, of OTA practices. So you gotta like that good friend, Mike Donahue. How you doing? Mike, keeping heart and moving. Glenn guard tells me Turner sees things differently than everyone else pretty much. Yeah. I mean I. Turner? If you turn got some issues, I think they're pretty well documented this point in terms of some things in his history. Bullying things other sexist type of things that happened when he was at Texas. AM. He's kind of throwback guy his interviews. He's a very intense in. He's just wired differently. But I think from a coaching standpoint, there is some respect around the league for him and what he can do how he's able to develop in. I think he is very, very confident in Jona Williams. I think he really likes Joan Williams. Probably seeing him over the past couple of years, while at Texas am in the SEC, you know. And, and I think that he thinks the Jona Williams can play left tackle at the NFL level, despite some people thinking he should be a guard or a right tackle, and I think that he does value cordy Glenn on this offense of line. It's just all it really it's all about bowling in how he sees him fit. He in others within the Bengals organization really seemed evalu- Bobby Hart. Bobby Hart is still pretty young. I think he's twenty four twenty five years old. He's got more football ahead of him from what I saw last year though in from what? We have seen from him in the giants from years prior to twenty eight teen. There is not a lot there that builds confidence going into twenty nineteen for him being a starter right now. So, you know, I would at least if, if the plan is to indeed move cordy Glenn inside. And you know, figure out a different place for Clint bowling. I would really like the Bengals to at least have have competition between bowling and heart and see who wins that out in camp. Obviously, you wanna do if you are gonna cut bowling, you wanna do on the solid, maybe do it, really. Or so he can find a place to latch onto, but I think he's a quality player. I think he's he's you know he was the best offensive lineman last year. And I think he needs to stick around for at least one more year, which is the remainder of his contract. Derek route says I've been pulling for Ross haven't given up on him. I think a lot of people are in that boat. And I think a lot of people are in the other boat, which is they think, you know, he's shown all that he can. I think this is a big deal though with Zach Taylor this system, a fresh start hit the reset button. I think that's gonna be you know, I think that's going to be a big a big boost for him. This is interesting. There is rumor in all kind of maybe end on this one, there was a rumor or a conjecture out, I think it was from someone from Bleacher report or NFL dot com. That said that, you know, they would think that an AJ green to New Orleans Saints trade would make a lot of sense both for the Bengals to get some draft capital and for the saints, I do not see that happening. I do not see the logic in that a chance white in the in the Facebook live. Here says that really want. AJ to the saints trade to happen because I want to see the man get a ring. I mean, yeah, I guess that would make sense. But AJ green has repeatedly said he wants to be with the Bengals I think we know what this team can do when he's healthy. You know, he's if he if he finishes, his career healthy and putting up the numbers that we are accustomed to, which is, you know, the those Dow's in yards seven eight nine touchdowns year. Those are hall of fame numbers, he's gonna break every Bengals receiving record that there is so you know, I'd like to see him stick around, like to see him to chances point, potentially win a ring with the Bengals that's probably not going to happen this year. But if it happened in the next year or two will see and really. You know, unless the idea is to collect that draft capital and move up for a quarterback in the next year or two. I don't. I don't really see the need the bangles aren't really aggressive when it comes to the draft. I mean they moved up twice last this last in was on day was day to day three. It wasn't into into night one. So. You know, I don't know. I just I think that AJ green is probably part of their long-term plans as Tyler Boyd, whether that is too long term contracts with franchise tag, Annalong term contract one or the other. We'll see. But I think those are critical to what they're going to do in there, especially critical. If Andy Dalton is in the other future plans as well. If Andy Dalton shows a lot this year, I think he's got a good rapport with those two guys, I think that those two guys would make a lot of sense keeping them long term.

violent chaotic political Michael History on his years in exile and imprison and on the myths and stories of the European culture he grew up in his own story begins in nineteen thirty four in the town of a bail Kuta when Nigeria was under British colonial rule my father was a schoolteacher go ahead Ma start in the primary school believe passionately in education my mother was a sort of petty trader we know small small items cloths jewelry some foodstuffs some local could manufacturer material Aw She traveled quite a bit she was also a is to call our tenant political left tenant of very feisty stupid politically astute onto your mind cold Mrs ransome-kuti who once led a revolt vote of the women against the traditional ruler they're lucky about quota was imposing so unfair taxation on women's guts and so that led to some for cast so I grew up in this really really exciting atmosphere of UH politics real political activism on the one hand and then you're more shall we say steed political discussions which went on around my father he was sort of the center of small law middle class intellectuals Electrolux's would debate everything from the World War going on at the time to the the price of newly-introduced newly-introduced motorcycles in the in the area they usually in our society children are principles be neither seen nor heard when elders around is supposed to respectfully leave them alone but I was curious I I just loved the debates there get excited issues and so somehow was allowed to eavesdrop I like the the other children just fascinated by discourse exchange of ideas between adults just used to fascinate the reason I was never tide of listening to and I picked up some of the ideas we had and I would ask I was really known as the question you're up to his old asks questions and dog Dog Day by ten explain things his father and his mother were at the same time strict disciplinarians who lived by the expression further expand the chart but show Yinka says he had the freedom to explore and he was a great observer of the community where he grew up a community that stood at the crossroads of tradition and modernity of Christianity Islam and rubel ritual these complexities appear and reappear in his place which have been performed throughout the world in in London and New York and all of Africa but many of the societal values he champions in his work we're manifest at home within in his own family we were taught as children was a ethos of absolute equality especially children my parents says I used to say to collect waifs and strays so we had a lodge from it I mean some of them were relations for than we were the before they the parents would come and virtually donate the China Sea look Help me get this child you know all this child has given me talk trouble he was shown the goes some discipline here or maybe their parents were going away somewhere maybe the worked with the railway because because who were in the civil service certain departments of the Civil Service you will let it be transferred anywhere anytime you're teaching also in some with missionary school should be transferred those sort of physical geographical mobility among many employees in it at the time when traders also people working for private commercial companies could get Santa For instance Waco call at guard he worked for cocoa-exporting from could be sent to the interior for some time and some of these parents who bring their children to us so the the population or by a household was constantly shifting and they came from different strata of society and so we were taught the not so much directly but through the attitude that allow parents to all children that's there was no privilege everybody was a child and if you misbehave got this much punishment as the other children so if anything uh we were treated more harshly than the other children because we were supposed to better into show an example in essence he says his one claim to status this the son of the headmaster worked to his detriment but there was one big advantage his home had books and when he was just a toddler he started to figure out how to pick out the words and I had a sister who was only two to a year and two months here in three months three months older than I was when she began school she it made my life miserable because she put on her school uniform home and sort of looked at me with a kind of condescension so I'm I'm going to school you have to stay behind eat was infuriated and so on Day and then of course we live in a parsonage and a which meant that there were some schools missionary schools decision who's playgrounds abutted the long in front of our house so I would watch these cookies also coming out in their during their break to play and then I could see also through the school run through the school run windows or performers these pupils bent over their books their papers I mean it was it was like a conspiracy so one day I'd had enough and I followed my sister to school picked up books from my products desk for me it was the most natural thing going to school you have to have books so I picked up my father's which I couldn't read and the next thing I knew was I was behind her screamed at me what are you doing here what go back now so schoolteacher came out to see what the forecast was all about and he looked old enough to come to school I said Oh I'm ready. And just indulge decided to indulge me filter would get fed up with it after the first day but no so I actually began school a two and a half years later when his aunt I ant and his mother began to organize women to resist onerous taxes on the goods they were trading show Yinka was recruited to teach the women how to read and write but it was when he entered the University College Ibadan that he really got his feet wet challenging the establishment in a theatrical way he and a circle of six friends formed an organization at university this was in nineteen fifty two that they called the the pirates confraternity to ridicule the privilege and posturing of their fellow students many of them were children rich people you know what we call the children of colonial aristocrats and they brought that mentality of colonial aristocracy in to collect certain uh totally divorced consider themselves divorced from the rest of the community a sense of responsibility with which I grew up it was just not there and so they have these clubs and other clubs Social Club for instance all mimicking British considered British culture always dressed up in ties jackets and so on the college atmosphere was uh-huh model than Cambridge and so on you went to dinner hi Dina high t to wear robes to go to dinner I hit it all that stuff. I didn't mind the occasional ceremonial ceremonial but to mimic British managers and so on to some ridiculous and so we started is was a rebellion against this stayed British formalism we started the pirates confraternity and one of its a the motto was against Moribund Conventional and and we used to dress his we don't rough-and-ready pirates we have to seal concord on top of a flat surface of the bookshop our climb up bookshop and within knock up the a Lotta unseal into the horizon is all typical student fund the pirates confraternity grew and eventually spread to other campuses but Wola showy Inca didn't stay the group's leader for long because partway through his studies at University College Ibadan it dawned on him exactly what he wanted on a to study and that required him to move to England I hated my fanatics had no time for physics chemistry will manage to struggle through through it was a struggle in school once that was done I threw my books you're all my mathematics books to the window concentrated on literature feature wanted to write he was able to carry his scholarship with him to the University of Leeds where he completed his degree with a major in English literature then he started a doctoral degree but the real world of literature won out over the academic to play to their theater in London Josh and I it was not immediately accepted for performance but sufficient interest was generated for the Director Arctic director to invite me over and so I spent most of my time or to rehearsals reading plays in London instead of doom line thesis in in elites so I consider myself a doctoral dropout and why place article theater the most socialized socialized form of literary expression simply because it involves different all the time there's a dynamic which exists into theater which you do not find reading or reading a different different sensibilities completely reading a novel is almost send individual exercise poetry even more personal mall intimate theatre two is where the community expresses itself most directly home of Shankar's first place that he wrote in London when he was still villainous early twenties were the swamp dwellers and the lion and the jaw both were set in Nigeria both incorporated music and dancing thing in the kind of folklore he grew up on and both touched on themes that have been part of his work ever since power and hypocrisy oh so I was trying to recapture certain sense of community which had known in Syria and the transition between traditional national society the concept of western quote unquote civilization and trying to see the weaknesses in things not quite as was not nestle progression on this just expressions uh-huh all of my own observations of society the line and the Joe was performed in Nigeria in nineteen fifty nine the play has two main characters characters one is a pompous young schoolteacher within affinity for Western ideas the other is chief who believes only in tribal wisdom system the play is extensively about a fight over the village beauty but written on the cusp of Nigeria's independence it questions what progress Chris should look like exactly in Africa during his early years is a playwright in London will lay show Inca told the academy of achievement delegations Gatien's of Nigerian nationalists would come over to discuss the terms of independence with the British Home Office the process of decolonization patient formerly began in nineteen sixty but the process show Yankus says had serious flaws and in the end before the British left they a managed to install Nigerians that they knew would best protect their intrests because Galanga has never really want to leave anywhere leave only because they find find the other compelled to buy war embarrassed militant action or because the they're they're clever enough to realize the camel maintain continuing neocolonial linkage with their possessions by granting independence but they keep the contact and they do that living there surrogate behind that's what the British did pick on the list progressive part of the country falsified sensors falsified elections to make sure that when he left the Hanadova Pau to them we'll is she says he knew things would quickly go south in the new Nigeria just from watching from his perch in London the delegations nations that arrived for the negotiations and I couldn't help observing that Be Yes they were committed nationalist but at the same time see I always had probably because of my background elitism and privilege subjects which twitter respond confrontationally immediately because I and I I really ingrained in me this egalitarian principle and the sense of service and I saw the first commas as been very almost as if they're busy motivation was to step into into the shoes of the departing colonial officers be colonial British colonials so them already positioning themselves ah take over power and privilege seemed to be more important to them than service and commitment to the community babs this will become even more understandable if you took into consideration the fact that I was is already at that time because you know they political as already heavily politicised I was very acutely aware of what is happening in south South Africa poverty hardening of the South African apartheid system February play in England was directed at what apartheid South Africa called the invention and Group of spoke about this community anytime during the holidays as we come together go to work in pocket Bonnie and sit on the West African Union Discussing Politics National Politics Continental politics and and we were they'll sue felt maybe main mission first mission was to go aw and liberate South Africa there's no doubt at all in is but this is our immediate mission now this got derailed within within encountered the the first flagbearer says of our national independence and we said we're GONNA ask ourselves shouldn't charity really begin at home you know isn't this the first line all all concerned with should have because I began to see them as new as Intel potential internal colonialists list and of course events proved us right so my attention became diverted towards Nigeria and I couldn't wait to get back and of course was route dance to the forest as a warning play that what we saw indicated clearly that we might have to fight the war of independence all over again this time against our leaders so it's all this came about because because of this politicized vision and a habit add Developed of examining issues very carefully you know in other words not get to carried away by slogans but trying to see what I what lies behind the slogans and how after one fees of struggle is ended ended the next phase might have to be confronted the dance of the forest is cautionary played that skewered the Nigerian political elite I was actually chosen in a contest to be produced as the official play of the Nigerian independence celebrations he'd already returned into Nigeria by that point anxious to participate in the country's post colonial re-formation back home he became editor of an important African Literary Array magazine and he formed a small guerrilla theatre company to perform a different kind of theater than what he was writing for the stage former needed a small group which could take a theme currency improvised around it and perform in the marketplace the on the lawns in Toronto Civil Service Headquarters outside the House of Assembly any open space as well as in the theater hitting directly at unacceptable conduct events with recognizable mimicking acting recognizable individuals pillorying by government and so on without any ambiguity by nineteen sixty five he was a university professor fesser teaching English and theater and things had begun as he'd predicted to fall apart ballot raking corruption power-mongering where the order the day he described those years in his third memoir as the Panchal Amos Years Than Columbus sum up for me the a political mess into which we got ourselves I expression actually by one of the politicians who's a great populist by the way very fascinating character and the Grand Columbus years I used that expression to describe the the the abortion of our expectations the crude the crudeness which politics the violence the ballot-rigging which carried over even into the House of Assembly the fissures this become quite open blown wide open and so virtually settled into into the politics off Niger itself which for me was sad the sad recognition even though I offer mission of warped our heart predictably to still sad to find it coming to pass so receding constantly was that vision of the entire continent marching down south to liberate South Africa which I thought shoot have been our priority in the first place and and so I got that frustration from the two sides to a station from diminishing of that Continental Vision because I saw Africa has women and then frustration about not being able to write the anomalies within Mount Society Got Kamal Deeper and deeper involved in I dream politics and that's when he was arrested and jailed for the first time during the elections of nineteen sixty fifty four I knew that was GonNa cups sometime or the other well those elections were very violent they could not reach the election successfully sewer and so what they did was to start altering the results they were elections with a lot at stake Nigeria was now one of the world's is largest oil exporters and Britain's still exercised enormous economic control in the country but show Yankee believes it was still more contest asked for power than for the control of resources far is an element in itself which one should never underestimate you dominate others seems to be he kind of animal parts of the human makeup which we haven't worked evolved out of in the midst of the turmoil and the violence exacerbated exacerbated by the growing cultural and regional divisions in the country will lay Cherie Inca learned that the premier of western Nigeria where he lived had decided sided to blatantly ignore the election results and announce his false victory on the radio since you have the support of the federal government something drastic ah to be done and so with some assistance some of my usual collaborators I commands to stop the broadcast substitute my I read prerecorded mountains statement so I when the studio and took the prime minister the PR premise tape off and substitute my own you went away. She a Yankees tape contained his accusations of election malpractice so I was tried all right very nasty charge most charged with armed robbery because apparently this hello this event was supposed to take place with the aid of a gun so cutting people you know come into frame they don't charge on drudgery date cost under a pound or whatever and substitute one anyway so that runs where was the robbery anyway I was trying to quit thank goodness but that was after several months of detention and protests by writers from around the world world that same year show Yinka wrote several new plays including one called Congas harvest which was later made into a movie directed by Ossie Davis in the following year nineteen sixty six with the seeds of election corruption planted and growing there was a coup by the Nigerian military led led largely by officers who were from the Egbo tribe that coup failed and made civil war seem inevitable there were massacres use it all especially against the eagles because the first coup the lead is where I must be able and so- reprisal killings took place and the drums of war begun to sound very very loud the east Eagles who fell there have been really valid because they were hunted down all over the place not just in the north they decided decided to secede by friend Christopher Kibo was able of course we again from the Writers Artists Community Entity who quite close Christopher Akiko was a teacher and a librarian and still considered one of Africa's greatest modern poets. When I was detained into that I'm robbery episode he used to come visit me? Detention was not actually formerly early diagnosis not granted bail that's all as his visit man the police cell where was held police station and would vetus portrait together Mark Ridley he would reach sport loped breeding is on points he wanted you to hear exactly how it sounded suit was very oral musical kind of report was a musician also by the way so that wasn't surprising and so he became quite griped her clothes and when the war was when I realized that war really was going to happen to and he'd left leg the other people that fled to the east where there were more secure Jenner Chubby loosen the East I heard of the writers like Gabriel Okara in the east and I felt maybe by linking up and resurrecting combat tight community with could might be able to do something to prevent that war and so travel by referring obstucted airless countries begun he traveled to the East where the population was mostly Igbo they had announced their intentions to split from Nigeria to form a New Nation Biafra when show Inca arrived in the Biafran territory he was suspected as an enemy and was arrested by the secessionists but when they realized who he was they released him and just at that moment by chance his friend Christopher Okougbo walked into the same police station back from the war front that was the last time they saw each other big boat went back to the front and was killed and show Yinka went back to western Nigeria where he was arrested for having traveled to the east he was accused of all sorts of things including buying jet fighters the Biafran his efforts is a go-between between the Biafrans in the Nigerian Federation in the West had failed but his reasons for trying trying we're clear desert simple I belong to the West the euro suitably pediatrician and any war war is being fought has being forced on behalf of people and This wall committed me as Nigerian committed me and I I felt was wrong and I refuse to accept that to be committed in that way the Biafrans had been violated they had been massacred there were one massacre just like a wave of Moscow's and have been hunted everywhere in other words the comeback of the of the federal side at least that portion which I belong indicated quite said in plain language anguish even though it was not articulated as such you the Annalong a part of the federation nothing was done to make them feel secure secure at least not enough was dumped begun peel secure the rights of the nation and then after they ceded which I consider rather a tactical tactical mistake not to political crimes not the more common but it was a tactical error and but then go after him to declare war against them unleash Banaa busies of unity above anything else you need to avoid I mean who committed the act this uniting the nation in the first place those who made the field they were part of the full entity so for me it was an unjust war which I could not be apart find out if I had not gone to the East I would have gone into exile 'cause I would refuse to be part of that entity which would war against people who had been so humanized so ineffective just want peace of mind to try and do everything possible to make sure the war did not show Yankee was held in prison for twenty seven months twenty two of them in solitary confinement without ever being formerly charged first of all I was held in

Finance Transformation. Skills For the Future.
"Technology Lovato hated we all rely on technology these days? Technical transformation is. US. But technology is any parts of the story. Successful transformation also relies on people. So how can we ensure that finance teams have the right skills and mindset to succeed? Will come to the go beyond disruption pulled cost brought to you by the Association of International Certified, Professional Accountants, unified, voice of the and Seema. I'm Rebecca McCaffrey and I'm based in the CPA and see office in London. Every week we share insights from inside the accounting finance profession that help you stay ahead of the curve, whatever business you're in. This week's episode recorded in July twenty. Twenty is all about skills. Development. I'll be talking about some research we carried out with KPMG. National. Finance transformation, the human perspective, and we'll also be hearing from industry experts. Francis, Howard Benny Colin and Gavin. Johnson about the skills that finance teams need and how to develop these skills. I can twenty eighteen, the research team worked with all recall on a piece of what cold agile finance unleashed by strong global survey of finance leaders. We identified a significant gap between digital skills and digital ambitions I need ten temp sensitive. CFO's believed that teams have the right skills to support their organizations digital ambition meaning that ninety percent of finance teams don't have the skills they need. This was a little bit alarming to say the least. So wanted to understand more. Working with KPMG International, I contacted finance HR leaders around the world and ask them about the skills gaps in their finance functions. They told me that the most significant skills gaps related to digital infrastructure and digital implementation. So, what's your organization's doing to overcome this issue? Back, in February twenty twenty, we discussed this important topic at an event in Dublin which featured an expert panel of members sharing their insights on skills development for finance. covid nineteen had not yet reached Europe as far as any of his new. So we had to pack. Ordonez. I was joined by three excellent panelists that evening I. Francis Howard Head of Capability Development for finance be paid. Within Hans Bernie Cullen CEO of pragman advisory WHO specialize in strategy organizational development and people management, and finally we had KPMG a given Johnson whose expertise includes finance function optimization. It was a really great discussion. So I'd like to go back can share some of the highlights with the charing the discussion Sima Chief Executive Andrew Harding began by France's Howard, what skills her company be a particularly looking to develop in finance stuff at the moment, it's digital first and foremost, but it's also what we call business skills which wraps up, but other people tend to call soft sales and I hate that term because I didn't think they're softer. So I think they're actually very hard edge and then thirdly it's really transformational leadership. And there's a strong linkage with digital because we feel the. Leaders of the future need, quite different skills to succeed in a digital World Competitive Annalong weld. So the whole type of organization is changing and the next. Bright. Idea is possibly gonNA. Come from somebody who's quite junior in the organization. So instead of the people at the top. Holding all the information and the knowledge and cascading down. I think in a modern digital organization, actually sometimes that's reversed, and so we need leaders who are able to. Cope with that kind of disruption that BP experience very much reflects our research findings which showed the importance of digital skills at all levels of the finance function. Francis went on to explain BP's pioneering game to promote digital skills among their employees. We've come up with this idea that we can create a cadre of data scientist from our finance teams. And the way that we're doing that it's actually offering the opportunity to anybody and finance, he wants to take it up. Doesn't matter what level rat whereabouts, the precision they sit where they are geographically. We give them some online courses to complete to prepare them, and we then give them a really tough assessment. And apparently people who even consider themselves. Quite competent. Sometimes come Acropora this assessment, but those who succeed get the opportunity to attend. Official boot camp. and. That's a really hands on. Chance, to practice that programming skills. So we have an expert for party supplier who comes in, we have about twenty people. And they spent three weeks. Working on real life data problems, and then they go back into the business and we give them problems to work on to hone their skills. And we're looking to upskill a really decent percentage of people a. Basic level, and then take about maybe ten percent through to the expert. level. And of course, that's Well, I'll love it because we're investing in them, but it's also very practical thing to do because it's very hard to recruit. Data scientists market. So one thing that has come out of this is that it's not just the youngsters who do really well at the boot camps. And that makes me really pleased because I'm mature in years. People kind of had this assumption that you've got to be fresh out of university or in your twenties whatever to really get this stuff. We've had some folks, surprise us and. The CFO said to me recently that there were a couple of people who are in their fifties and he's been amazed at how they've how they've done how they've got a new lease of life, and so I think that's another thing that's nice about having this open access approach is when not making any assumptions of WHO's going to do really well, because people are surprising, you can read more about finance transformation at BP in our report finance transportation, the human perspective. It's great to be pay taking such an inclusive approach where employees at all ages have the opportunity to get involved and make an impact. Let's hear now from Gavin, Donaldson Kpmg who have a relatively young workforce? What skills are they looking for? What without doubt? The People's goes what we talked about are probably. Most. Important requirement, there's an expectation. You have a technical capability, but if you can't interact and you can't work in turn the or with our clients that doesn't work unless you can actually help the business to make a decision, the business skills you to the whole thing becomes meaningless unless you've got the people skills and the confidence to do something with the analysis and actually bald unfortunately, none of us would be really executing what we need, discharge him, what we need to do. So they've got to come together but increasingly digital world. How can you finance professionals develop these people skills? Only colored enough pragman advisory highlighted the importance of knowing the business. It's critically important that everybody in the finance function who's involved and change gets the opportunity to spend time actually out in the business and understands the purpose of their function. At the end of the day we're storytellers. and. No matter what happens in terms of technology. That's the core of our role, using the numbers to tell story stories absolutely fundamental to our rollers management accountants. It really helps to engage and educate on on finance colleagues. In today's world, we're all learn this and our research highlighted two-thirds, thirds of US keen to learn new skills even if we lack confidence in using them. For influence as spending noted changes in our working practices conserve to promote more adaptive learning mindset. I think one thing that's very different. Now from maybe qualified is that even if you think about the mobile phone and you think about the skins, you've had to learn in order to use mobile technology. We've we have to adopt. There's so many different twos that the rate of twos change in business is ever increasing. So no matter what age you are. You have to learn how to use them. Stephen is creating duck an adoptive mind suss which. I, think. LAYS THE FOUNDATION FOR FOR DEVELOPMENT I? Think. At the end of the day, one of the most important things is there's a lot more availability. It's a lot easier to access learning now. For example, linked and learning is such an amazing treasure trove of. Different learning opportunities, some of which are very very short. So I think it's a lot easier to be adoptive learning now and I think the very fact that every one of us has learned a new skill to to engage in our day to day business every month it seems of moment makes us much more open to that. Bernie? Mentions the needs to evolve and develop. One of the few positive things to come from the covid nineteen pandemic is the speed at which we've all picked up new digital skills. Even, our parents and grandparents and bracing videoconferencing and the wealth of learning opportunities. Available Online. They've self lead and three four courses have been very much at the forefront. As finance professionals, we have see PD requirements because we need to keep learning. That, we heard from BP KPMG about the approaches that larger organizations with sizable training budgets take to develop their stuff. But what about smaller companies. Offered some suggestions for US Amis thinking about building capacity. There are a couple of small things because sometimes with the estimate with SMS and I would do a lot of work with us. amaz-. It's not trying to bite off more than you can chew. So I. Am To folks and getting two things don't first one is. Making sure the. One two or three finance people in the team. They get an opportunity to connect actually in really into the business and first of all, secondly, I would. Think about breaking down, what is it? What problem solve and just trying to solve one problem time and in terms of technology? Bush. If if it's focused on. Getting. More quickly or miraculous whatever you know trying to solve don't. To amass problem, bring in some expensive system think about. Small ways you can bring change because they find a like getting on the treadmill start slow and actually then you can pick up speed small changes can all the difference as often the answers to your problem will come from the workforce selves This idea of collaboration and Co creation was something which came often in my case study interviews, you can read more about these in the report. Staying with the a semi fade. Geffen Donaldson's KPMG with about the potential for collaboration between large corporates Anisimov's. I think firstly. The such, a movement around science will change and what businesses doing to respond and support. That's that actually. The collaboration between. Huge corporate the SME market will naturally overtime start to come closer together. But I think. For more substantive perspective, the idea of a portfolio career, you know somebody doing two days Monday Tuesday. MVP. Wednesday Thursday with your company and a fifth day working for a charity. There are examples of that state, but I'm convinced in five years ten, ten years time. This is going to become the norm. So what you'll find is people who. Perhaps. A. Relatively young finance person. Can spend a few days in an SME and seeing something into end which you will never forget. MVP. GSK. That just doesn't happen. And, bringing that together becomes better. Blend starts develop the finance professionals today. Won't be such an opportunity. The economic environment we find ourselves in today means we're likely to see a lot more collaboration between corporates and SME's going forward. So, the kinds of experience Gavin describes will be a huge asset. Report details, the digital skills required teach level of the finance function noting that digital literacy is essential to future roles. But to lead is actually embracing this change. We ask the panel for their views. Francis explained how BP Taylor Data Literacy training for leaders are do agree everybody needs a certain level of digital literacy. But let me just give you an example based on the boot camp example earlier. So the same company who run that data incubator. SEPARATE LEARNING OFF FA leaders set school and dishonesty leaders so we. Target people who lead organizations, where lots of the dates come, and it's about how do they support those individuals? How do they understand enough about possible projects to understand which the ones that have really got legs and they should really invest in. So it is different data scientists a bit like accountants have their own language which we need to learn if we are to communicate effectively. Another challenge is convincing all levels of the organization to embrace these new digital ways of working. Not, to expect the the younger more junior generation, the ones that are going to be more hands on and really embracing this change. But. The problem will be unless that is reciprocated at the top of our the people that really have the books. If you really have the influence, it will get stuck I. Think it's fair to say that we've all been through lots of change since its panel session recorded in February. So, hopefully, the remote working experience will have had some impact on those leads. Three practitioners. Tunnel. In one sentence. What advice would you give someone starting in finance today? To start with you fronts. So think work hard and actually really important because you've got to get known. For being good at what you do I think bi-strategic. So kind of understand what it is actually dry Yuzu. And then aim for roles way, you can do those things because it's really not hard to motivate yourself when you're doing something that you love to do or at least that you love you love to do for the majority of the time. It's a nightmare to motivate yourself if you're in a row where actually got no passion for it, what called Bay, strategic and find something you're passionate about. Stuff. I think to be very clear about the purpose of finance function in a business and how can you be increasingly purposeful? In Euro Kelly. Be Curious. Curious to two levels. One to make sure that everything you're putting in front of somebody actually ends up and make sense and applying sound good old fashioned. Chairman's arithmetic to what you're presenting, but also to be curious. To wonder. What's happening outside of Your Business? What can you learn? These ten minutes on the train when you might be. Browsing on Google other pages. Always thinking, it could be done differently. And, if a finance professional can bring that to the workplace, I think it makes a huge difference. That's it.

"Everyone really trust Facebook implicitly with all the daughter and Facebook never done anything to make you question they commitment to your privacy. Well, any feel bad installing Facebook camera that will lead early follow you around the room smack bang in the middle of your kitchen? Yes. This week download this shar Facebook. Paul also talking about the death of Google plus Yuba wanna, give equity to their driver's doesn't really count all that much and just how regrettable you'll retweets all of that much more coming up. This is your God to the week in technology, the media and culture. My name is Fennell than the welcome to download this shot. Yes. Indeed it is download this and it is a very welcome to at panelists this week. He is a software developer with access informatics. He said site with confidence, and Thus I have paid a marks. Welcome back to download this show. Good to be back. Annalong side paid him. 'cause we have another person who's been on the show for many years and been through many jobs has a new one. She is the editor of junkie Johnson. Welcome back. Thank you for having me back. You don't want me to mention like all the TV show is coming out. I mean, yeah, I do that startup show as well, which has been green lit for another season. Amazing. Teaming up with Benjamin Laura, and that one again, which is fantastic. I should say that if you listen to them of his show and you're not watching that startup show which you can see on YouTube on the Gizmodo website, you absolutely should. Because if you're interested in what guys on technology Australia, it's actually the best. Why to say what's going on with new startups in the country. It's called that startup show. You can find it right now on YouTube, and that eases much cross Primero as I have splaine for. So let's get into it. Kano Ray tweet, truly a an endorsement because right now pay the strain, fair work commission have gotten involved, which seems like of very big jump. Why are these drying fair work commission trying to work out whether a Ray tweet can possibly ACL endorsement? What's the impact was the senior deputy president. Jonathan hamburger re tweeted a tweet from Michaela cash. That was critical of the CF MEU. And so the CFM EU is asking that he stand aside from making rulings about things like entering the worksites and things like that on the basis. That the re tweet meant that he agreed with mccully cash and he's positions supposed to be independent dependent. That's right. So the question is it didn't make any comment. He simply retweeted it. So this is a broader question happens all the time. People will re tweet a Trump tweet, for example. And I think in that case is often because they are completely outraged by the tweet and all of their followers will know what they think about it. But in this case, it's not certain. So yeah, this is an interesting legal question I so Jonathan hamburger is he is we've the strain fair work commission. He's senior deputy president and the if you're not sort of intricately aware of how industrial relations where can strike the Fairwood commissioned themselves are involved in Judah catting a whole bunch of issues relating in relation to work hours and what's what he's in work in the most obvious type. Never. So how do you stand on this? Let's assume you're in charge, right? Shoot array, tweet, equal, and Indocement. I have never considered a racially. Anything, but an endorsement, I retweeted a lot of Donald Trump and on just about to guard. Just to that. Look at this crazy person that's in charge of the world. Do I need to delete that now, do you think I'm feel like that's why the quote rate wait exists now so that you can go look at this ridiculousness. I absolutely do not agree with this to be able to clarify because no matter how many times people put in their bio retweets to equal endorsements. No one's going to go check your bio. And if I see that come up in my fade Ray tweeted by someone, I'm going to shoot them a grants with. It's so interesting because so many people put things like retweets dynamical endorsements, and my thoughts and my own. But if your, like, let's say, as a hypothetical, if you are broadcast with the and you say something that gets media attention, you get a write up the daily Telia. One of those, they don't care if you've put in your by that. Like these, though it's in my ironed, they'll be like busy both and said something offensive on the blah, blah, blah, blah. So are we at a point now. Where we should just like save the characters and remove that from bias because nobody cares and it doesn't matter anymore. Yes should absolutely get rid of it because whatever you go tweeting, if you're tweeting things publicly, absolutely. It's going to be attributed to you as a public person, saying things in a public space. You can't just draw reline and say on, oh, there's a disconnection between work and private may while I'm speaking publicly to the entire world. That idea is kind of ridiculous. And imagine if you were on going all the ABC terrible. It's terrible place debate. I mean, which is obviously. Not not my -pinion. I, if the basic isn't going to look at that and go, what are you doing like you, what I do you want to work for us? Why are you saying these things out loud? It's what's up groups. Interesting. Interesting argument spas CF you was that it takes two clicks to re tweet. Not one click. It's not like something that he did accidentally, but there is because you've got what you click re tweet and then you go the options. Do you want to quote this, or do you. Thing not actually saying what you mean in the the comment next to the right tweet, but there is some precedent in two thousand seventeen. The US office of special counsel warn the then ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley that she'd retweeted something about Trump and they actually decided legally that that meant that she was revealing her boss if you like. So that was actually a legal ruling. But I think in general, this this thing about retweets do not equality endorsement that actually dates back to Patrick Lafforge from the New York Times, said that some years ago. So it's been around for a long time. But yeah, it's an easy out on takes though, isn't it? You've got to say it's a mistake should have done any s- pulled down his re tweet. Now the original tweet is still there. So he's obviously realized that it was a mistake in anyone who's in a role where they making judgments, has to be extremely careful about as you said, right about revealing motivations. Oh, bosses on the public internet. I don't think that it's something that people. Should be fired over or anything like that. But I think it's something that's worth reminding people of how they are perceived when they do re tweet, things that might not necessarily in line with their own ethics, morals. All the companies that they work. You've never more sounded like an editor with ways. Editor junkie alongside software developer for Max's informatics, pay Tamaki mums. Marc Fennell and Facebook drink is or Daesh Asli apparently launching a new video gadget, something you harm the cooling portal. What the hell is it right? It's a gadget. Facebook's decided to make a gadget, which is the most horrifying thing I've ever heard of. So once I get it, we physical, it's a physical gadget. It's got a screen. It's got a camera. It's got four microphones and it's got some decent quality speakers in it. If you've got a Amazon echo or Google home or something in your home, it's conned of along those lines. It has Alexa integration, so you can ask questions it can play your Spotify music, all of those sorts of things, but it's going to screen. It's got a screen this two models with two screen sizes. This is my infra graphic my, my infamous voice almost good. Yes. So it's not actually viable in Australia get is starting now. It'll be available in the US in November. That's I think, yeah, the the fifteen inch size is three hundred and fifty dollars. Fifty dollars ten inch, one hundred ninety nine dollars. This is US pricing, but what it can do over other gadgets that are in your home is connected via your Facebook to messenger, and you're using the video calling function within messenger for the time ever right? But without having to hold your phone in front of your face. So you've got this screen that sitting in your harm and the cameras attracting new zooming in on year panning across the room. It's like that zoom in hand soon. Episodes. Absolutely. So it's meant to video coaling Asia, which I don't think is a good enough reason to have a Facebook camera and said of microphones sitting in my heart, I don't think Facebook have the clout at the moment, the security clout to be able to offer this product. It's an interesting time for them to be launching a device like this, but I guess what it pays back to. Right. So we're at the stage now paid away, and we've talked about it a lot on the way houses are becoming smarter and we've got Nazis, big companies competing for that space in your house with the Alexa from Amazon or Google home and Avon Paul. Yeah, that thing is. Really good music. Yeah. Wouldn't mind kind of stepping back into sort of comparing what what is, what are the various different options available to you? And why would you want Sipe portal over a Google Alexa? What? What are the different values you get out of those options? I think Google has got incredible penetration. I forget what it was. Pure research said some twenty percent of homes or something in the us. Now massive just a couple of weeks in the US and it's everywhere. And I think we talked about last time on the show that on radio stations. I sell tell your smarts Baker to Bob. I yes, driving around the US and they're like, tell you so big is a thing. Now what this is this is supposed to be messenger is supposed to be video conferencing and they think things like that. The smart camera that follows you Renzo in their promotional video, they show someone teaching someone how to cook something in the kitchen. So they can't use the hands the walking around the kitchen, and it's tracking them. And apparently it does something with the audio, which I guess is focused audio on the person who's who's talking that sort of thing. What are the, of course. Everyone has the same problem is, do I trust Facebook to have a camera in my house at all times and given the recent data breaches, you would have to say, no. Interestingly ships with a physical camera block, like a piece of plastic clip over the camera, which I think speaks to the fact that people are worried about it. I mean, if that anxious that you're gonna use the physical block out, then you really gonna put it into. Yeah, also like what about Odia I've said that now it only starts listening. Adani starts uploading the speech after you say hi portal Hypo and almost Halayqa that the video tracking smart cameras, smart speaker us not microphone. Stuff is done on device and not in the cloud. They, she said, no, we don't track any dot up at about a week after the launch. Then actually had to say, oh, actually, no, we do use. We did track information about your calls so that we can target better target advertising, edgy. So the have actually back down on that. Why device book care about missing? It's. A y. two k. you engaged on the platform at all times paperwork going to the news feeds as much as they were previously, but people will go to messenger all the time to message their friends. It's another place that they can make revenue quite easily messaging. They are putting in messaging. They're also using the information from your messenger chats to tag more adds to you as well. So I know so many people that have deleted the Facebook app from there. The messenger. That somehow it's, it's not. And this is a way that they negate that as well. Okay. People might not be interacting on Facebook like they were a year ago two years ago. It might be a bit old fashioned to the kids, but they'll also use messenger to keep in touch with their friends because with Dada, it's free with with this hardware though they are trying to get into another space, which is the music. I've got the Facebook video. I forget what? Yeah. What it's called and they're, they, they watch into it. It has that. So I think at the moment, it's only got a cooking show or a few things on Facebook watches. Interesting. Because as most people will notice into the Chinese, their outgrew them at the beginning of the year to what's the word I'm looking for completely screw over people that make video on, and it is has come as concurrent them launching Facebook watch, which is a dedicated platform where they can insert ads and what a surprise that I went, screw people over the work and that rumors that they are going to also produce a set top box which. Has video conferencing, and that of course, will be sitting next to the TV and that will be more of a video platform. I mean, I think Facebook is trying to be which for some uses of the internet. Facebook is the engineer in places. People say, I'll look that up on the internet and they go to Facebook and search for something. And that's how I get the news and look things up. I think the floor though is that they've had to put Alexa into this product because they don't have a speech import, and you know it all kind of bought the there are enough had to put Amazon's one in which I mean, this is the thing like PayPal, really use it quite a lottery house on his a competitor. I mean, there's advertising is moving away from Google and Facebook into Amazon because people they sell ads next to the shopping with Alexa with Alexa. Vega Maine's that they can sell it on the Amazon stow. That's interesting, and it will likely bay promoted products by on as well, because it was a thing about certain apple products not being able to be bought on the Amazon store being huge scandal. Yeah, Facebook doesn't have any way to sell you things except on Facebook. Who's going to buy something off Facebook off their news face or the policy. They're gonna go through MS on the partnership, make sense. You build a bought on Instagram. Forgot about that. Yeah, which is where I buy everything. Every anything like loads or finishing, I'm Sisa -ceptable and now set it out that. One of the things that I think is important tonight is that because of how much content is moving for better for worse onto the Facebook watch platform and Facebook watches replicating so many of the behaviors that we commonly associated with the having longer shows on. They're having a product in your kitchen that can replicate some of that lane back viewing experience in a kitchen thought we the additional functionality oven. Alexa, I actually do think there's a market for that. There is a market for this. There's a market for in, you know, in the groups of people that don't think the concern about security is worth thinking about the do just trust trust Facebook goal or don't really care if daughter is out there at all. Even off to all of this, I also a market in that, you know, what do we get the grandkids, we'll get them a device so that they can talk to video the show families. Yeah, grandma. Talking to the kids and things like that. Actually, interestingly, there is a kind of a reference to sixteen or whatever it is. Did you watch the ad in the ad? I've got one of the scenes is a woman reclined on a Aloun JR, and on the other side of the video called as guy sketching her just stay Titanic to many. The hot of the ocean and total time. Sex, messenger plays PayPal do it. But I think one place where might be useful actually where there might be a market for it as well as people streaming. If if they if people smuggling no, no streaming. Streaming. So you know, you've got all these cooking shows and things on twitch. Facebook's trying to push their live video how? Yes. Can you know, have a alive cooking show via the portal then might be a market in this for that without an expensive in a setup. I also bowling every time I see video or video. I'm just like, quit, why you all useless and unhelpful. I think this products did already. The big goal prediction is that next year there won't be a new model? Yeah. I think that the the fact that Google is out there in so many homes, what's Markov's laws is the strength of a telecommunication system is proportional to the square of the number of uses. Google is already there. Alexis hugely popular Facebook and the apple there at the high. And this one is too expensive people. I've got little Google devices in every room of the house and it's already hooked up. I just don't think this one can get a grip, so we've got Facebook filing in the kitchen. But on the other hand, we have Google filing this week as a social network. Of course, the news came out this week that Google plus has officially being killed him. Some of you will member Google plus was Google's attempt to building their own. I'm not gonna say Facebook Killa, but I think that was down somebody's intention and it died. Didi ever have chance ride Johnson? No one, no. I don't think it did. I think it was fine for companies potential in Christ's SEO traffic to their posts to promote what they're doing, all of that sort of thing. But for everyday uses, it was fought to similar to Facebook at the time in functionality, but just a little bit boring as well. Elected member headwind this launch had the circles. Yeah, since I had my circle of friends, I family circle of computer nerds, what of and that did kind of make sense. But it was very simple, very, that was like those on good idea. Fa may though is neural differentiation between putting people on a restricted friends list or an acquaintance as list. Let you can do that on Facebook, but it was always very complicated and difficult and you've dragged into Dom. It's. But I just don't think that there was no real reason to go back. I think there was something to do with timing as well, because by the time that had launched, you'd already had a few years if you photos and I really do think fido's is a big part of this, I think is another reason why a lot of people dying, delayed Facebook accounts, even though you could download if you've had us if you want to be protractive prices. I think there was a point at which you know Facebook with launch and you had a couple of hours and and then there was Instagram and the audio like there was no real reason. It was so similar to what you already had on offer. But I do. I always liked the idea circle in the previous shies what we've sort of, let's be honest, fun of Google. Plus people of always come back with specific groups. Like the dog refers. We huge fans of it because they're the, they're the ones that are gonna miss it because I do a lot of business through Google. Flicker lost. Yeah. So. Part of it. Hangouts was big, Padre leave on us products and they have products. Some people did really well in dog. How sake the apple evangelist had seven million followers and he was, you know, he was really cane on it because it was much better filtering him. I was found that forced itself on me. I kept using it when I didn't mean to. I've got a blog, a blog, and every time I posted pops up this shared ago and they do it in such a way that it's must be docked patent where I'm not sure has actually gone up or have to click okay in this folks, it's like a trick and the has been a bit of an article was written by an ex Google who Morgan Knutson, who talks about the fact that the project he says, the project was very badly, Ron. It was very authoritarian, and also what they did was they incentivize staff within Google to integrate Google plus into all of the different parts of Google bike, surely having financial incentives. So that was kind of like you. You've really got to put this in. And I think at the time it sounds like they would terrified of the growth of. Facebook. Facebook was wrapping up so fast and it was stealing. Let's add revenue what there's a really worthwhile question that that needs to be honest because we invest obviously lots of invest into Google plus, but somebody did guy Kawasaki right when even vested all your a big chunk of time and energy into building up an audience and content. What are the sorts of considerations that should be taking to account for that company when they shut it down? Like what option should they might be making available to us deed love it, the side that let's think about it if I spoke died, Tamar, that's more than a decade of my life. Yeah, that that is documented there and it would actually calls me physical pine. Yeah, in the same way, vice just as physical giggles actually in a really good position to be able to offer PayPal, something substantial. He in the way of an off hive, but doing what they do best organizing it well, so that you can actually go back. See everything that you've put back up. I think that they should be able to offer you a download archive. Actually, apple just launch. They download service quick. Look at it this morning, and it's a huge list of everything that apple has on you, including all of your purchases. The movies you watch they, I tunes music, you listen to, it's huge and you can download it. So I just, I actually wound you is this will be very big. If you include. Down low. I asked to download just one bit of which was my. I think he directions with the app store was the only thing text. Well, send me an Email saying, this might take up to seven days down. It said, how do you want the chunks to be like one gigabyte so. Interesting. Very smart. Yeah, yeah. Well, look, I think it's it's possibly part of the JD, but it's also I think it does give people the option to get off one platform. I guess the other side of that is that if you wanted to pick up, say you were going to be a Facebook killer, you would have to make a tool that lets you import the data into that new platform. It's with putting out that Google had a few attempts at building social networks. There was the audit which is sort of where it sort of started back in two thousand four, Google, even two thousand nine, which is, I guess more of a collaborative sort of price, but it had social components to it and Google buzz which was killed in, I think, two thousand eleven if memory serves east this something. Intrinsic with Google that prevents it from being able to build this kind of network all? Is it something wider. I don't think it's something you can tag on. I like remember, apple launched ping, which was a social network in audience axing with bands. Remember. Remember, no one used it as you can't just tack on social and I think you've gotta look, why do people go to Google? They go to Google to search and organize information. The dunk go to Google to socialist. Facebook has got that spice. I mean, we saying Maasais friendster will these on the ones disappear again, it's this Metcalfe's law. Once you're big in social once you've got a lot of us, it's an exponential job to overcome that advantage just quickly. Before I let you guys guy, there's an interesting story at with Yuba Uber have actually sent a letter to the the say in the US requesting. I challenge to a certain set of rules that would allow it to give equity stocks not exactly what it is notionally equity to drivers, which I thought rising interesting idea because we talk a lot about how the gig economy is, is very pace. Meal doesn't service people who want like term careers very well would giving drivers equity and be a way of. Creating some most ability in that income, would it would it work right? No. The director at all. I think that this is a very good move on behalf of rebel. Yeah, this is something at the moment, the private companies able to do for their employees, but it's not something that extends to contract and this is what he wants to do. This isn't without precedent. There was a rideshare company previously that Dido alpha. It's as a better deal bicycling is how they how they put Juneau yeah, Juno they were quad one hundred million and leave. The drive is got three cents three cents. I got three cents push. Yeah, about a hundred bucks. They ended up field. They went full shares some sort of limited one without full disclosure of their financial documents which they don't have to do at the moment. 'cause they're a private company, the know going public until next year. It was about three million drivers globally. Give give Otake here. Ten million among three drivers works out to about three bucks. So it looks good, and it makes the drivers probably have a bit of woman fuzzies. Mike Suba have a bit of woman fuzzies again, though blows lawn of Ave, employees, Zach, I mean, going to want annual leave and superannuation shouldn't. I guess I believe and superannuation. Just make them employee's rather than give them these. They just throwing them traits really? You tell poppy at home. I'm fascinated by it. I think Scholley whereas is now where we can recognize that there is a space in between what we traditionally understood to be a full time employee, and I can play contractor and Uber employees as the best emblem of that. And we need to stop thinking about different ways of creating and legislating Estrada for those people. So they are living in this sort of completely pace meal existence. Interestingly Yuba rejects the two gig economy submission, they call it on. But if you noticed how often if you get an Uber, they've also got other ridesharing apps running in the in the cost. So the drivers aren't that loyal Velgo from one to another quite as the and this is a way of making them loyal. It's the same way that equity is used for employees to get them to stay on after ten years advice, and so you wanna stick around if they wanted to keep them loyal. Maybe they should just pay them properly yet. But I disagree with that also rises. Interesting question of. If y'all giving equity to somebody the then today, then also have to sign something that says, you want also be a lift Dr. Yuan also being like your pot. I know you motivated to, you know, help that company do as well as possible. Apparently they do monitor the penalty that draw the side of the app monitors how much you drive, which is not being billed through. All through big Dada that your loyal drive or not. So you'd have to have multiple phones turn one of your fines off believe. So driver has. Message from them saying, you know, fifty percent of the time. You're not what did they do that information though? Like if they're not paying them for that time that they not driving over, who's what business it is to know that. Exactly. Well, maybe they pick and choose which drive it gets the job. I mean, nine win the doing the, you know, the booking linking you up. I know where you're going. They know it's a good fare on auto. Maybe they have an internally, I'll bet they do. They have ratings on what the customers think, but I'll bet they have writings on how profitable the strawberries to the company, all sorts of things. I'm just guessing, but. Mirror episode. I'm sorry. E e this is speculative site to the PR executive. Absolutely. Gonna Email me when not saying what you doing, but please come on the show and talk about what you actually doing open invitation or that is all we have time for in the show this week.

Like drinking from a firehose: Jeff Greenfield on the week in historic headlines
"A whistle blower has turned Washington upside down and has changed American politics in just the span of a few the day's how's the press stepping up for this moment and what might happen next. Welcome to this week's reliable sources podcast. I'm Brian stelter. Turn we use this weekly podcast to go in depth with media leaders and newsmakers talking about how the news gets made and how all of us can help shape it and make it better and this has been an extraordinary week of news. We are recording this on Friday. September twenty seventh just a couple of weeks ago on television. I said the Democrats are losing the impeachment messaging wars. The president trump is winning. The Democrats don't seem to have a strategy or plan but then and this whistleblower story erupted and every day this week. We've been bombarded by news. It's like drinking from a fire hose and I have the perfect person with to try to process it trying to make sense of it and make sense of how this news environment effects something like an impeachment inquiry. Jeff Greenfield is with the war winning political analyst. He's endured two rounds of presidential impeachment proceedings in the past as a television journalist working out for almost all the major networks including CNN for many years Jeff. Thank you so much for joining me. Okay always a pleasure to be with you Brian. You're a calm Tom. Voice amidst the Salamis of needy out with the signal last week still relatively high with you. Oh Gosh well thank you I I don't. I don't always feel very com but I'm glad to hear it. I have this sense that maybe viewers and readers heads are spinning right now at the end of this week you know there. Was this impression impression that the Democrats were were were far from impeaching trump. The net simplicity was reluctant to go forward and that was just like four days ago. How do you make sense of this week. Well look shocking to people who believe email created leaks universe. Real events often have an impact the the whole Watergate story really began when one of the Watergate Erc was read a letter in open court saying you know there are other people involved in this judge Ceriga than said we'd better get we find out who beside these original burgers may have been involved so in this case as what you had in the midst in the midst of a whole bunch of different approaches to what's impeachable. There really was collusion. It is taxes It's the the payoff to the mistresses. It's the lies about how he got rich. Whatever it's him and Putin sudden you had a a very clear clear understandable assertion by someone whose credibility was was vetted by one of Donald Trump's own appointees namely the director of National National Intelligence who said the president pressured the president of a country another country to help uh-huh pin- politically at the risk of perhaps risking desperately needed military. That's a simple understandable of assertion that goes to the heart of what the president's supposed to do not do and because it involved a urgent urgent matter of foreign policy it rattled rattled a lot of the Republicans no we didn't have a lockstep defense of the president because of the assertion is true he was he was playing with the future of Ukraine threatened in by Russian militarised saying you may not give you the selenium she helped me politically and so I think the clarity of what was asserted. an in nature was asserted was a big reason why things change pretty quickly. What did it feel like to you as someone who has seen it all so recipe fail like to you in one cents a because of the last three years ahead reaction. Oh Oh yeah why not at this point Ryan if an alien spacecraft landed and some people getting out of the space fresh said for the sake of the survival of the planet. You really need to change presidents. I'm not sure I'd be surprised I just I said. A couple of times talks that I feel like somebody who's been a commercial airline pilot. All is like an today about to take off the control control tower said by the way you should know the love gravity has been suspended. You know this is not normal. Thing is so much a part of what we've all been living through data that in one sense this may not be surprised if we look we certainly had stories from inside the administration of discontent and concern and bafflement excellent at how the president behaves. It's just this one appears to shaken people inside the administration in a way that even things like like how he dealt with president crucial didn't it was different qualitatively thing as I said because of the of the jaw dropping nature ager of what the president did on this phone call in for what reason it does seem to have shaken people inside the White House if this whistle blowers to be believed there our multiple officials who were sharing information with them about what happened and yet those others have not gone public. They don't appear to have filed their own whistle. Blower complaints planes. I look at this and I see some timidity or probably stronger than that you know about White House Zaid's who are not willing to stand up and say something is going wrong here it kind of extraordinary. This is the first time we've had a complaint about president trump and remember you know your I think often one of those people wanna see cautioning against a rush to judgment right so we're talking about something. That's what three days old so it may be. This is the sort of story that evolves over time and it all doesn't happening. Warn Sudden Rush you have had I say it's fair to say less unanimity among Republicans in Congress in in the media that in the past you have had not just knit wildly but a couple of other senators and a couple of Congress people in a house aide. This bothers me. I'm worried about this. You've had a kind of civil war going on at Fox News. It's intensified over this so I just don't think we can draw conclusions so how this evolves based on the last seventy two hours that is interesting point. You're saying the the response from Republicans is actually more muted than maybe it would the expected that there isn't as much of a staunch defense of trump as might be expected because there have been some defenders there certainly have been figures on Fox that are defending him no matter what but you're saying that we should notice the relative lack of support that there's not stronger support him on the Republicans yeah. I'm this is in no way of prediction. I just noted that there were there were more people on the Republican side of things going on. This is bothersome you yesterday a at the at the hearing with deny one of the Republican congressman on his way to sort of trying to say kind things about the president said you know this phone. Call was not okay. You've had to me you've had you've had a couple of others. shaking your heads and this we're we're. We're at the beginning of this stage of the process. There are so many things we don't know about you know how do the Democrats Kratz in the House intended to do this of other really going to funnel everything to the House Judiciary Committee which is one of the most polarized committees in Congress. It has opposed to for instance the idea of select committee which is what Ca- generation or two we'll go. The Democrats in the Senate did Formula Seven Person Committee composed centrists centrists non ideologues Do we have a media. This is your department to have a media universe that would permit a kind of slow unfolding of facts or are we as you use a much used analogy. Are we just going to spend the next couple of months straight out of the fire hose. It's just uh it's unclear. All I'm saying is this feels different because there are people on the Republican side of things who seem genuinely unwillingly bothered by what the president did on substantive grounds once again for additional Republican approach to foreign policy one a muscular foreign policy you want the United States h. Defend allies against threats. Here's Ukraine threatened by Russia and the president seems to have put military aid on hold and waiting to see whether or not Ukraine would cooperate with his political desires that is that is at the root. That's about as basic question question about presidential behaviors you can get. Is there any alternative to drinking from the fire hose. Do you see any way to avoid that or to have to have an alternative as we go through this impeachment process sort of doing a piece of political critical about the concept of alternate universes so there might be an alternate universe where we would proceed slowly in dispassionately but it occurred to me aren't made this point. Maybe before you even if you go back to. Watergate rain once Walter Cronkite and company signed off at seven thirty on the east go. S- back then the next news you got was when the morning paper hit your door you could watch. PBS replay the Watergate hearings but basically that was it we we did not immediately switch to five hours of frenetic analysis or opinion making we did not have a bombardment of of social media in tweets until the whole process of unfolding story of finding out what happened was much deliver to face again. This is your turf Warren but you tell me whether using the modern media universe would permit that kind of a stately crosses the idea that the news turns off is is something that's not imaginable anymore unless people go out of their way to turn it off you. Only it only stops if you force it to stop but that's an individual decision need back then. If you no matter how hungry you were for news you know Walter Cronkite said that's the way it is and that was it so in that in that universe ending the political universe I or how many people in the congress spend more of their time trying to figure out how to get on their favorite cable lose network been doing the business of say legislating legislation or honest to God investigating look. I mean this by the way in a in a bipartisan way how many Democrats already call not for inquiry but for impeachment any Cam Democrats of Eight Hundred Fifty Democrats when you've oppressiveness have we got to impeach the Scott now that's not they're not saying we we'd better get to the root of it like some. Biden's that but just in lots impatient on the other side you think about that House Judiciary Committee Republicans on like Louis Goal Nair Air and Jim Jordan and Matthew gets and Doug Collins. We think they're going to say we will not let she was. The president really may have overstepped aligning fear. Is that is that anybody thinks that's the process. We're going to be going through. I don't well so far. How so how does this compare in your mind to the Clinton years or the Nixon years. How does it feel let's talk about the the Clinton years because because because I was in the midst of actually covering that story and what I think we saw was a more slightly were civilized way a of people go into their respective corners on once said that the CNN should not we didn't need to any guests we should just have sock puppets because everybody was saying the second thing he lied under oath. Abbott it was about a private matter but no man is a bubble of trying to overturn the election but it's important to remember member that that that back then even though the ultimate votes were highly parts were five. Democrats that voted to impeach speech in the House and they were all like southern Democrats in nothing Muslim ceased to Become Democrats. I think there were some where depending on account five or dozen Republicans who voted against against impeachment so the votes were partisan but the process was less poisonous. The process was more yeah but because we were less polarized country because the identification of party as almost tribal religions was less lesson grade and so what you had was an also he issue if you think about it whatever you think about the President President Clinton his behavior you know debating whether or not the president's going to be removed from office leasing lied about being sexually pleasure by intern isn't quite the same thing as is is this president subordinating American foreign policy to Russia or to his own political fortunes. It's a it's a more it's a much more serious creed of process than I think it was even even twenty years ago and either Watergate comparisons trying to go back in time to the to the other impeachment. the people know about is it. Is it even possible I mean. Is it a waste of time to try to compare what's going on now to the seventies or the nineties given how much has changed in our media and politics. It's it's it's a waste of time. Provided realizes analyzes just how totally different things were in the Watergate written about this before and I consider the both houses of Congress were heavily dominated by Democrats. The Senate Watergate Committee was a model of non ideological combat. You know that the chair was a conservative -servative. Democrats and Arben who a constitutional expert the highest ranking Republican was Howard Baker a moderate Republican. There was Lowell Weicker a liberal Republican Herman Germantown legit conservative Democrat so the process of trying to find out what happened was lunch. Walk honored back in also so you also had a media that was much more homogeneous. There was no Fox News there was no Breitbart and the media to be sure was more than anxious more than how happy to explore the potential wrongdoings of Richard Nixon was not a media favorite so there was no counterweight. It was not nightly on onslaught on a the equivalent of Fox News saying you know this is an attempt to overturn the election. Democrats did the same thing back when they had power Palo Mum so the the difference in the in the political immediate universe between then and now was is incredibly star. I don't know if there had been the equivalent of a Fox News and Democrats Republicans have had looking for Publicans that had the Senate Senate. It's possible with Nixon might survive this even though a lot of the Republicans back in action so I think what you learn in looking at the Watergate situation. It's just out inappropriate or inaccurate or yeah. I'm sorry I'm stumbling awards but how you can't fit the Watergate model into today it really can't you know his parents of Ernestine and John Dean Dino Yeah on on what they may. I have to say about this but to try to analogize to Watergate. It seems to me to be wrongheaded. There's something incredible about the diversity of media media now versus twenty or forty years ago but there's also something I find I find so sad knowing that we're going to be locked into these two alternative universes purses and that the facts will will appear so different in those two universes. There's a sadness that comes from knowing that this is going to cause even more division in hate the only the only in one of the alternate universes somehow or other. Um Yeah I think this is beyond possibility. Now you wonder if Speaker Pelosi decided to form a small select committee rather even having six different committees and all their information to judicial would the Republican leadership in the house cooperate. We need one of the things that's happened happened the midterms in two thousand eighteen a lot of the more moderate. Republicans were undefeated so what's left is a Republican Caucus. That is even more more ideologically homogeneous than it was in. It's very hard for me to imagine that the Republican Caucus would permit on its leadership to see let's try to let's try to come to the heart of this. Let's let's try to really find out what happened and appointed select committee with the least partisan members of each party together. I think that's a fantasy. I just don't see how that happens. You also have on the Democratic side of the Progressive Caucus. That basically has already said let's impeach the guy and can and will regard any attempt to kind of cool. The brakes put the brakes on as a senator so as a result there. There's no way to have a process that will not be politically polarizing painful. Is that what you're saying yeah. I here's again. I'll give you one other alternate universe a whole bunch of people who served in the trump administration like master Mattis Tillerson I'm not sure I don't maybe Bolton but a bunch of say it's time for us to level and tell you that this president has to be removed that he he's a he's a danger to the American Republic easies. Just he doesn't know what he's doing is three whatever it is.

CNN and we're back on the reliable sources podcast talking about Momentus Week in the news business a week. That's all the beginning of a formal impeachment inquiry in the house and damning revelations from whistle blower alleging in some cases possible criminal behavior by the president and his aides. We're taping. Maybe this on Friday September twenty seventh and I'm talking with Jeff Greenfield renowned put analysts we've been talking about Fox and the right wing media among other things and and that's something that it has been notable this week jeff to see anchors shop Smith and commentators like Judge Napolitano on Fox talk about the possible crimes that that have been identified here and then on the other hand pretty much the rest of the Fox lineup stars like Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity mocking the ships miss of the world swearing there aren't any crimes you know you have these alternate universes right within one channel when it comes to Fox yeah now ships and for swallows among others for some time been very different from the prime time advocates they've been and I think in this case we've just seen battling out more because we have almost kind of verbal sparring match between Smith and Andrew Napolitano who said the presence presents committed a crime and Laura Ingram Joseph degen of only other who said now they're all crazy the the one that I think I've been keeping an eye on for a while as drug because drugs was for quite a while very reliable transmission bill for pro source he began a while ago hosting esteem stuff on his front page questioning how strong the economy was in the last few days. The front page has been filled with stories that are critical trump that that raise questions about whether in fact he was behaving in a unpresidential way and I don't know whether that's simply gently a case of him wanting to get out in front impeachment which is what made his reputation during the Clinton Europe right or whether it's a sign that that what what trump tom has been doing a has rattled somebody who was more inclined to support and that's look in some way run. This is an old story from the days as of the campaign itself when trump I ran the question was was the center of the Republican Party of prepared to reject him as a hostile element or was he. GonNa Conquer it and Beneton his will. That's been the case from the time he started running. he has remained the Republican party he has violated many of their most cherished beliefs about free trade deficit and foreign policy and they'd gone annalong part because he has won over the base of the Republican Party and so the question is again. It's kind of like what we talked about earlier. Whether the comments Senator Ron Johnson senator SAS and others are just worn off so whether they in suggests that something slowly may be changing that the the kind of reflection circle the wagons remember this is our guy may not Rena fully survive of this latest story. We've seen this in Robinson. You'll know this place out but I just found that I found the drugs response to this worthy of a look at least and it gets your broader utter point about Republicans and how they are responding or or in some cases just not reacting not commenting. There's been this wide range of responses with some pro-trump kind of social media stars and celebrities on Fox swearing that the president is the hero and has done nothing wrong and finding finding ways to bend over backwards support him but yes you're right. There has been in other parts of Republican Party in the media. A much more muted response. Maybe an old fashioned thing they actually waiting for more facts what an old fashioned idea or at least waiting for the public opinion polls. It's not one of the one of the questions is whether or not the public which seems to have been until recently sceptical sceptical if not hostile about impeachment is going to change. Its mind nerve some numbers but you know how in this is. This is a basic jason belief of mine. The polls have long become the crack cocaine of journalists and it's probably a good idea not to not aggressively wait for every new number but I I have a feeling that some of these Republicans got their fingers in the wind seen whether or not there's some kind of sea change come about how the public regards trump and impeachment on look this president has uniquely Lou in pretty much in the same place in the polls as he has been from the beginning of this compound little change incredible and we just don't know whether this event is going to be different so you know as the president links to save Ryan. Let's see let's see what happens. Is it fair to say that no matter what happens this will be a trauma a national trauma Emma. You're seeing Democrats like Joe. Biden say this is a tragedy Nancy Pelosi saying that take no joy in this and then you get some liberal commentators saying oh come on. This is a great thing you know. This is not a tragedy at all. Where do you come down on that. Will I remember back in Watergate. Michael Kinsley Berry was observer server said the same thing so you kidding of course I'm enjoying this. I you know next Mile Hyphen these in trouble and I'm delighted which has the advantage of at least candor you know one of the possibilities and I think maybe one of the possibilities that would help trump is if the the country at large the middle not the not the partisans come to see this as just Chakra fifty of another example of endless noise coming out of Washington nothing getting don just a just a mug fight between two equally this likable sources and so that's one possibility depending on on on how sprays out the possibility of again the middle of the country getting an education in just what it is about this story that it's so disturbing that's another possibility but as we've talked about given the frenetic nature of how media or delivered absorb. I just don't know how that happens. I know people will try. You know it's not it's not that the that the news media making effort to spell this out to the New York Times today at the entire whistle blower complaint Mike question but I mean then the inside the whole thank but how many people do we think we'll say you know. I think I'll take the next the hour so read through with this is I just I just I don't know to what extent people have already chosen up sides to the extent that as they watch this play out. It'll be like watching you know the major. Julie Playoffs depending on whether you're for you know Houston or the dodgers or the Yankees or whatever into everything gets affected through the frame of the good for my guy bad for my dun rite. I'm just packers game yesterday and I'm watching as an eagles fan and nobody watching an NFL game. Nobody watching a baseball about a matter that no one's going to change sides met game. Nobody there's no that's right. There is no eagle than with things pass. Interference correctly called against their defensive secondary degree. It doesn't matter how many replace us now if the guy had a length that's what fans are. That's why Fannie short for fanatic for the needs and I think that's what spilled over heavily women probably always who's there but certainly the politics. Is You you today that way it's. It's you know if the if the players were in my team's uniform. I'm form if he's not. He's an evil guy. I don't see how this I don't. I don't see where where this changes if anything I think this accelerated because now we're talking about whether or not a president's GonNa be impeached is one other quick thing I think we should we should note that de impeachment impeachment. I'm thinking about this back. In the Nixon was very very portend is thing in the people who even the people who voted for it. I think genuinely felt my God. What is she no. We're really GONNA do this by the time it got to. Clinton was much more ahead much less. Impact you know the Clinton was impeached. He was acquitted and wound up with higher. job approval ratings at the in the beginning so so there's that the whole idea of this is kind of a solemn moment in constitutional history. I think is going to be replaced Ari. WHO's up WHO's down. Who's WHO's losing well. This is going to be a challenge for for the country for politicians for journalists. Do you have any final awesome advice for the reporters for the for the commentators for the folks who are who are watching this every day. Take a breath. Take a breath bum you know I I think that applies if it's even possible to the political players players one of this came on the heels of that New York Times a book excerpt that suggested that there was another complaining witness against Brad Kavanagh having all and before before clarified to say by the way this person doesn't remember it and I think there were four candidates for the presidential nomination and the Democratic Party in call for impeachment I would hope that the president president and the people making judgments the people making would take a breath not always allowable you gotta get gotTa get that twitter feed out. Oh God I got an actual story but the sheer speed of this is not of this whole media world is not conducive to say wait a minute. Let's let's take a breath and see if we can actually figure out what happened to you. A menu were many journalists will do this but whether they will be overwhelmed by the rush to judgments right whether that high quality news and information and that well thought through well process information gets drowned out by the fire hoses. is a question Jeff Greenfield. Thank you so much for your next column on Politico Okay.

Let's get into the Philly cocaine bust on Tuesday, basically every federal and state agency combined to bust a container ship at the port of Philadelphia for carrying at least four hundred fifty kilograms of cocaine. Oh, they weren't. They weren't. Sure. Exactly. Because they pinch some of it like. John. Yeah. Couldn't be exact that's that's basically thousand pounds of cocaine. That's eighteen million dollar street value. That's that's half a ton just drop them ahead. That's rush me with it. That's half nights. Half a Tuesday supply and Philadelphia, maybe. What do you think the whole city snorts out much? Hey pounds. Do you have any water? I don't know maybe not do any water cocaine. That's a week water. The unreal amount of cocaine was in route from Colombia to Europe. So high just stay here. Yeah. That's technically it did. Yeah. That's true. Did stay here. And it was stowed in bricks inside duffle bags a locked container ship where allegedly the bolts on the door looked a little tampered with. So the feds had pop it open and take a peek. So that's where Cain belongs in a duffel bag and bricks containership. Did you pick up on that though the door looked tampered with they gotta tip? They knew the cocaine was in there. Right. And they claim that door was tampered with so they could go in and see what? Right. And that's how they got their search warrant bullshit like those cliche movies where the cops are bad ass music. We don't have a war and kicks the door opening goes, oh look at open. Now, we got a war. Scenario smash something on the books. Look the lucky. Yes. Yes is the highly addicted to cocaine Philadelphia police department called chunk fat. So I thought thousand pounds be some kind of record. But Nope, I found to bus in the USA alone that absolutely destroyed this one one happened in Harlingen, Texas in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine acting on a tip. Authorities searched a house and discovered nearly eighteen thousand pounds of wrapped cocaine estimated to be one billion street. Oh my God. In a house was it was the house made of cocaine like rows. How how do they have that much eighties? Cocaine was a different kind of it's not your father's cocaine today. It was your father's croaky.

Twenty one tons of cocaine. God that's a street. Value of six billion twelve million cash was also seized two veins. Yeah. That's I mean, it's amazing that these dudes don't just grab a little bit. I mean, they do a little bit. What's probably depends.

It's proven proven fact, then Erica Harris Poletti says she says the same joke that a thousand other people seven I was researching this better put a wall around PA Laffy face while joke shouldn't be a dome dome would work better. Like just a shitty fence gum. Keep me out a dome over Philadelphia would be disgusting. Cocaine. Snuggles nobles gasoline is falling. That would be quite the collectible for Christmas cocaine snow globe, Philadelphia for you. Christmastime those birds so happy and my favorite comment on this one is from blue cupcake he says, so you're telling me cops estimate cocaine at forty dollars per gram, which they do. Because in this case, if you decimated sixty which is what I had imagined most of you pay for it that is twenty seven million. This is wholesale though for all the dogs. I buy I don't know the price of drugs like when I when I go see a drug dorm, like how much is I don't know. I never know. I'm so nervous. I'm like that's a good price. Thank you, take it. I got the mass amount of money so much, sir. Yeah. You're already in the house. Do I tip you I'm in your house prices are so stable they've been like the same. I know, but I still forty dollars per gram saying you gotta buy once once you're in the house, you're paying whatever they ask you. Yeah. That's right. Their dog is looking at. I. Into the soft quarter and a wool baby. Do I have a soft corner for you today in the Kunar the much woman rainy seven just quite an honor? I one of the worst moms in the world and YouTube channel fantastic adventures, creator Machel Hackney, that's H E L L E Masha spell like Michelle Micheli isn't a softcore Celli. She is she deserves to be. They're fantastic adventures has eight hundred thousand had eight hundred thousand followers and over two hundred and fifty million views combined for all the videos, which feature her seven adopted children doing fun little sketches and having a good time around the house. What a fun everyone loved it. You know what I mean? But behind the camera things were not quite as they seemed 48-year-old Hackney turned out to be a worst director for children, Bryan singer. Show child rape. Joe? It's called an open secret. It's on YouTube you watch. Yeah. They got she abuse. But Baheen rhapsody was so good SOGA. They heard a sequel wasn't that great. The first Humira Obse was like if the character from from labyrinth, David Bowie. Played just kept going for half an hour back. Just what just watch the last twenty minutes suck moving so can abused. Her children by beating them dousing them with pepper spray sometimes head to toe including purposefully in the genitalia and lock them in a closet for days on end without food water or bathroom access. I just did a quick calculation allegedly two hundred and fifty million views. It's like roughly it's between three and four thousand was. Oh, she was she made about a million. Yeah. Off these kids. Michelle hackney. Michelle was arrested last Friday at her home miracle bears ONA on charges of two counts of child molestation seven counts of child abuse and five counts of unlawful punishment child neglect. And if you're keeping scored home mention their seven kids that were abused. So all seven kids are the seven abuse cases. And then two kids like the one whose penis blood when she pinches it. Too hard got the full on station. So she got accounts for those two kids while the other five lucky kids weren't quite fully molested. They were just locked in the classes and starved and embarrassed just torture. So they were just unlawfully imprisoned. Hold on. Did he have an inch on his penis? Do we know? I don't I don't what are you trying to make a joke about it? I'm just saying I'm just how to react. She was just torture in him by mutilating, his penis. Okay. That's not good. Okay. Yeah. Cool. But it's zone. It's all right. Michelle, you are so far the fucking soft corner. You can't see shit to either side you're like fucking right in that corner. No peripheral vision for you happenings to biological adult. Sons Logan and Ryan Hackney were also arrested for failing to report the abuse of a minor. And these kids look at this one of these guys the idea that yes, most part of think we'll post the photos, the idea that these guys were living in a house with seven adopted children when you see these photos, swoop hairdos white trash do you want to give up your Mustang? I don't wanna give up my Mustang. Yeah. So many shells vying us Mustang, so they witnessed the abuse everyday living in the house and Logan went onto mid it. But they got arrested because they didn't do anything about it, so gone pack, your bags boys might wanna bring the big bag because you're going to be the soft corner for long fucking time. And then police were tipped off by one of her other biological daughters, Hackney's biological daughter. I guess realized she was heading to the soft corner was like I need to do something about this. So she called the police and was like mom's not treating the kids. Right. She has this penis pinching technique that really makes lead. Let's look in a Dobson giving kids instead of. Pencil marks for. How tall is it's penises for the blood blood dots. Police conducted a welfare check at Hackney's home and found a child wearing only a pull up diaper inside a closet that had a locking mechanism that would make Matt Lauer blush, which is like, oh, we'll that as the six other children in the house appeared very malnourished. Apparently and one kid drank three sixteen ounce water bottles within like five to ten minutes, which is what I do every Wednesday night right after way, it's like because I've just been sweating for an hour and a half and seeming I could tell you. It's very dangerous like a five year old doing that. Not good. The locking mechanism was meant to keep people out there. Like was he in the closet? How no fun in the classes, he lacks whatever lock them in there. I know you found one of them in there. But I don't ever lock them in there. He loves being covered. In shit is sons a real pieces shit that children have been removed from the home. Thank god. By whatever version of child protective services is an Zona the few that weren't too scared to talk to investigators told them about the the torture. The endured which included the being drenched in pepper spray from head to tell being spanked violently and forced to take ice, baths could have been supportive AOL ass. We don't know. Do you think is a challenge for the swelling? I'm giving the benefit of the Docklands in allegedly. Sure, you wanna go this route. I don't know. No, soft part of this. Okay. Hackney would allegedly dunk the children's head underwater when they disobeyed forgot their lines and sketches. So if they didn't do a good job in the sketch. They were getting dunked tonight's bat. Mark does that to me when we're filming? Yeah. I'll admit it on camera right now. Also, a weird one that she'd tortured them with as she made them raise their arms of their head and lock them in the closet with their arms of their head for several hours. So just out immediately. That's the worst one to me. I think it's like, they're pledging a frat and. Yeah. And the reward is parents. Yeah. No. It's always hell week the hell week part of the, you know, they need to do with this chick is any like by these kids, a sweet ass house with a pool, you know, and then just put a shock collar honor and maker be their personal slave for the rest of her life. Not I put it in prison. That's better than prison. Yeah. No. I mean, the kids are fucked in all these scenarios the kids are all right? But if they had hostile save on a shot to keep now, we're going to keep an eye on these kids. So they don't okay turn out to be molesters themselves. But anyways, the kids also hadn't been in school for years because Hackney needed them for her popular YouTube videos. What did she do is go the adoption agency agency? And she was like, let me see all six kids. She was like say this line say this line say this she adopted the most like gregarious kids to the adopt Dopp, see like central casting. Exactly, right. She's denying the claims, but fuck her she did it YouTube has Dimona ties the channel, and it looks like they just very recently took it down. Thank God, soft corner to you, and your and your sons you fucking asshole V psycho yet. I was joking fucked this chick look as Cording to new study teens and young adults who have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD who received amphetamine such as Adderall for treatment have higher risk of developing psychosis compared to those who receive methamphetamines stimulants such as Ritalin according and psychosis like being schizophrenic, like hearing shit, not necessarily schizophrenia. But yeah, halloo hallucinations, delusions hearing things. Yes. Reading this pretty fast. Yeah. You have ADHD pet which one are you on Ritalin? You tell that. I didn't take any meds today. Well, thank God. I'm not we're gonna read the story. No, no, no. Well, thank God. I'm not a teen or young adult because as my host can attest, and they were looting to just a second ago. I would I would be in full on psychosis consistently with the amount of stimulants that I take and it's not to say I'm not in psychosis. It's just seems that I'm my psychosis. Probably not related to my affinity for prescription methamphetamine debate. Yeah. Mine's because of the cat litter. Yeah. Because the calendar what what what are you have you have that plasmas gone her aides brain herpes at her. Yeah. The authors follow two hundred twenty one thousand teens and young adults from ages thirteen to twenty five with ADHD who were prescribed stimulant for the first time between the years two thousand four and two thousand fifteen half received amphetamine such as Adderall and the other half received methamphetamine such as Ritalin and Ritalin is still at that was also on from the years nineteen ninety six to two thousand two time when I was really good at Marian cart areo cart Marya Marya from the east coast tales. Yeah. The first time the first time I had an experience with either areo cat was in college. And I took Ritalin. It was the first time obviously, hit me like a ton of bricks, and we ended up throwing like an old TV out the second story window. That's that's that's what we did that first upper you take is wild was a wild ride on. I remember. I knew I'd found something great. Yeah. My dad gave it up to like six AM doing push ups. Like, I was untying a not for six hours. That was like it's working talking a total of three hundred. Total of three hundred forty three of the teens innuendo to were followed or one out of every six hundred sixty young people develop an episode of psychosis in the few months after starting on the stimulant. So I'd love these fucked up studies like, you know, one of these groups fucked. Yeah, find out we'll. It's for science. So the risk the risk for crazy about is about as twice as high. If you're taking amphetamines versus methamphetamine, according to this study. So let me boil this down for you guys. Stimulants are awesome. As you can tell if you believe me, especially if you're generally messy or easily distracted like I am. And they've changed my life to be totally honest stimulants change my life. But if you take a ton of them, you're going to end up like Lindsay Lohan in two thousand five and really that's the only warning they need to put on the bottle. That's true. You guys ever? Like have you guys like, you know, the like have you guys ever done ecstasy, and you in person than using just looks like a vampire? No, I know Molly ecstasy like the people you do within the morning, but anyways, like little hotter all gives you like the same thing people turned into like ecstasy vampires like like six AM. So it's not surprising to me that if you take enough of it, it'll just permanently when the demons come at some point what happens at the Adderall is the drug like wears off, and you had seventy eight beers. And that doesn't wear. As soon as the wears off, you become a vampire sure because the alcohol destroys, you we call it. When when the when demons come out demon mode demon mode. Yeah. Experience what what heart factor? Mark was describing tax form. Check my Twitter between the hours of two and six AM on doing other thing to be scared of okay? Also, according to CNN study, drinking, very hot tea almost doubles the risk of cancer. So hot to you're very hot, very hot tea. Extremely hot. Teas we talk. We're we're talking. We're talking sixty degrees celsius or one hundred and four degrees Fahrenheit so under. That's. You to trip give thermometer out when you're fucking Meghan, t no. Sure do. Title one hundred and forty degrees still. Researchers found tea drinkers who liked their TS or beverages to be warmer than sixty celsius or one hundred and forty degrees Fahrenheit and consumed more than seven hundred milliliters of tea per day about two large cups had a ninety percent higher risk of a sophomore cancer. When compared to those who drank glass at cooler temperatures Asaf ago cans, censor stripping, the the layers of skin off, your has no lining in the Asaf. Earning it off the people or animals. Boiling tea. Yeah. Really wakes me up. It's the dumbest fucking study of all time. Breaking news. If you burn yourself as daily with a Cup of Earl grey, you might get cancer at the type the part of body, you keep burning susceptible might also instantly die hot who paid for this study. It's like it's like quick tell the kids who were habitually doing the the fire challenge that they're gonna get skin cancer. Because I keep pouring gasoline ice tea companies. Hey, great, you can drink hot shit. Right. They're offering five grand if you can drink one hundred forty degree temperature liquids every day. And then Greg does a cancer. Let's take it to the internet guys. Rhonda read says that's why you've been this back to the. That's why you pray over everything you put in your body asking God to give you the benefit only not the side effects, and Courtney chases Rhonda read, why can't you just ask to rid the condition in the first place, burn good points?
