Fresh update on "anthony" discussed on The Doug Collins Podcast
"I mean, you may not like it, you may not be your proper sense of let's send in Anthony Blinken to actually discuss how we can actually come up with a terrible idea for the United States. But then we look good. And we can talk to people at our cocktail parties about how diplomatic we are. No, these people don't understand diplomacy. They don't understand they understand strength. China understand strength. North Korea understand strength. Iran understand strength. Putin understand strength. And if we don't get this through our head, folks, this is going to be a disaster that will continue to build, continue to build and continue to build. So all that said, for the rise of the anti Semitic issues here in the United States, where you can't even call out, I mean, you got members of Congress who can't even call out the rapes and the plundering in that happened in Israel, but yet we'll call out every politically correct thing here in the United States when you've got a foreign policy that is non existent. And you've got no retaliation for attacks on American forces. You're just in a in a bad spot. So as we look ahead into this and we look ahead at where we're headed, I think each and every person needs to really look at the 2024 election. I'm gonna spend some more time on this later, probably next week. Later this week, we're going to have first thing. So we have Senator Ron Johnson will be on with us looking forward to having the senator on for his perspective on a lot of things going on in Washington, and I'm going to end up here today on this Wednesday. With some discussion, Washington, Washington has got I made a podcast did a podcast a couple of weeks ago that I really laid it out. So sometimes it just has to be said, if you want to go back and catch it, you can subscribe to our podcast, go back and check the previous episodes. But we've got to get to a point Republicans, especially on the hill Democrats in the minority on Democrats are under majority in the Senate have got to come back to understanding that, you know, you've got to get something done. That doesn't mean that you're going to get everything that you want. It doesn't mean that you get everything that you need. It means that you need to actually put in place a process to get to 18 in the house 60 votes in the Senate and one president to sign it. And that deals with appropriations bills, it deals with Pfizer, it deals with FAA, it deals with agriculture deals with everything we're dealing with right now. And right now, we can't seem to come to that we're blaming everything saying, Well, if I can't have my way, then the rest of the world is wrong. That's not the way you govern. It's just completely not the way you go. So in, I want to just briefly touch here, we've done a lot of foreign affairs day, I wanted to briefly touch on the fact that Washington is at a stalemate, they'll probably leave at the end of next week, House looks to be voting formal impeachment articles, which they if they were going to do this should have done it back in September, to begin what will be a first of the year process of impeachment hearings and others with Joe Biden and possibly and my orcas as well. So really, as far as from a perspective, you've also got less than 10 legislative days, when you get back in January to take the first deadline for the budget that you did this, this laddered CR in which you had the some broke into the first batch in January, some broke into the second batch into February of funding the government. And we've not even started, we're sitting here three weeks, you know, two and a half weeks into December now, and after Thanksgiving, and after the CR passed, and nothing has been done. So if you're looking for a lot to be done in Washington, DC, you've come to the wrong place, go pick up more on that next time we get together on the podcast. But you know, to understand the ins and outs. Also, I didn't touch on today, but I want to do a little bit longer deep dive, the presidential race is getting down, Donald Trump is is looking more and more to be the Republican nominee. I think the others just simply have to go. hanging on thinking something's going to happen in his court cases, and then they can try and slip in for some, you know, unknown reason how they would run between DeSantis and Haley and the others. But you're seeing the field shrink. I do have Doug Burgum actually got out of the race this week. And Doug, by the way, had a great point. And I think it's something that we need to look at from a Republican Party perspective. And Democrats need to look at it as well, because they've sort of locked everybody out as well. And that is, who gives the right to the Republican National Committee to determine who should be on that stage? And, you know, again, you they are narrowing the field based on their criteria based on the folks who have the most money, folks, if that had been true, and so many of our primaries over the past 4050 years, you may not have gotten the candidate that you ended up getting. And this is gonna be a bigger discussion for Ronald McDaniel and others, especially at the RNC on while we're doing the debates as we're doing them number one. And number two, how are we doing the debates as far as determining who can get in. So you take off a voice like Doug Burgum, who's been a governor of a very prosperous, you know, growing state, and you're taking him off completely, in which, you know, that might be the chance in which he does able to catch fire, he may not have the the institutional backing of others. But maybe he has a message is to be shared, maybe some of these others, Tim Scott, and some of the others with the more you take off, the more than you are limiting who the Republicans get to pick for their nominee. And if you're taking it out saying, Well, the only way we're gonna do this is you get enough donors, you get enough polling, and then we'll let you on the debate stage. I think we're really gonna have to take a look at that as we go forward. But again, more conversation for another day. This has been a Wednesday edition of the duck Collins podcast. Glad you're with us. Look forward to seeing you again on Friday when we have James and we have chip and we will be getting into a raucous Friday's fun. So until then, y'all take care. To work at all. Then there's those social justice elves. They keep pointing out everyone's differences, dividing the elves and getting them all riled up. And don't get me started about the reindeer right selves. The shop floor just isn't a happy little place it used to be. We should have used red balloon.
A highlight from Introduction to Philippians
"Brothers and sisters, I would encourage you to open up your Bibles this evening to Philippians. We're going to be taking a look at Philippians chapter 1 and verses 1 and 2. We are beginning the book of Philippians. Today will be more of an introduction to that particular book than anything else. I will attempt to talk about the author, the themes, the aim of the epistle, the things that we can learn from it without spoiling too much of the content so that later on as we preach on individual portions, it becomes anticlimax after anticlimax. I don't want to give away the entire book, but I do want you to have an idea of where it came from, why it is so very important to us today, what we can learn from it, and to see the similarities that exist between this book and indeed our own time. As I'll be discussing in the sermon, Philippi was actually a military colony, and you may have noticed we live in a military colony for the most part. So the resemblances between us and the Philippians, apart from the fact that we have microwaves and cell phones and things like that, and they did not, are very strong. They are still the same kind of people who deal with the same kind of difficulties. They too had a state which was sometimes nice to them and sometimes which oppressed them very badly. They also dealt with the problems of relationships and all of the things that the fall has brought in. So as we look at Philippians and we hear Paul writing to this beloved congregation of his, let us seek to apply it to our own time, but before we come to the word of God, let go us to the God who has given us this word and let's ask him to bless it. Please join me. Oh sovereign Lord, we do pray now that you would be the illuminator of our minds, that you would help us to understand your word. I pray that you would help me to divide it to write, that you would give me liberty and power and unction as I do so, that oh Lord, I would not say anything that goes against your word. I know I am a man with feet of clay. I am capable of interpreting the word or wrong, but I pray Lord that you would prevent me from doing so. I do pray also Lord that you would give me the sustaining power to go through this book, a right, and to apply it to your people. May you give us ears to hear and hearts to receive all that you have to tell us. We pray this in Jesus' holy name. Amen and amen. Philippians chapter one and I'll be reading verses one and two. It says the word of the Lord. Paul and Timothy bond servants of Jesus Christ to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi with the bishops and deacons. Grace to you and peace from God our father and the Lord Jesus Christ. The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. I wonder if say 10 or 11 years from now, if I was in jail in Washington for my preaching of the gospel and possibly facing the federal death penalty and this congregation had sent me a gift in jail to help me along and I was writing a letter in reply to your generous gift. What would that letter sound like? What would I say? How would I come across in writing to you? Would it be complaining about the government and my situation? Would I be going on and on about the unfairness of it all? And speaking about how my liberties had been infringed or would I be writing to you to know a little about how I was doing and then spend the vast majority, not talking about myself and my own situation as dire as it was, but to spend the vast majority of my letter attempting to stir you up to joy and in the Lord to encourage you to be full of peace and grace and joy even in the midst of adversity. Would I think so little of myself that my letter would seek to lovingly correct problems of disunity that I knew about in the congregation? Would I push back against those who perhaps were on the fringes or in the congregation itself who were teaching bad doctrine in the community? And above all, would I urge you to keep the person and power of the Lord Jesus Christ at the center of everything you did? I hope that I would. I hope I would not send you a letter merely of whining or a simple thank you note that said very little. In my case, though, we're going to have to find out. But in the case of Paul and the Philippian Christians, we already know how he spoke in the midst of those circumstances because that is the letter that we have in front of us. Paul is in the midst of serious adversity, serious difficulty. He is struggling, we know, with loneliness, with persecution, and he writes a letter to his much beloved Philippines that is full of joy and encouragement in spite of all of those difficulties that stood against him in the world. So much so this letter is so full of joy that it has been often called the epistle of joy. Paul writing from jail, remember, and a Roman jail was not like the jails today. We speak today of jails as being three hots and a cot. You have TV, recreation yards, things like that. In Paul's day, that was not the case. You either had to pay for a place to stay if the charges weren't that serious yourself or if you were thrown into a Roman dungeon, you could often die of exposure. You went in with the clothes on your back, and if your friends and your family did not provide you with the things that you needed, including food in jail, you could die very, very easily while awaiting your trial. But Paul, writing from that kind of jail, he uses the Greek words for joy and rejoice, imploring the Philippian saints to rejoice. He uses those words kara and kairo more than a dozen times, and this is just a four -chapter letter, remember. So joy is one of the most prominent themes in what he is writing. He is, as I said, in a Roman jail. This is possibly the second time. I think it's probably the first time that he was there. He is waiting a trial on a capital charge of treason, and the people who will judge him are members of Emperor Nero's brutal and corrupt administration. And as we know, Paul was not somebody who was going to give them a bribe, so there's no way out of his imprisonment that way. And yet, as we shall see, Paul is able to look well beyond the circumstances that surround him, and he's able to actually see Christ in heaven and the work that Christ is doing in the world and indeed in Philippi and throughout the church and to know that God throughout is in control and that all of God's promises are coming to pass. Let me just stop and ask that question right now of you. Do you know those things as well? Do you have that solid trust no matter what your circumstances are in the Lord Jesus Christ, that no matter what afflictions, adversities, difficulties, diseases you're dealing with today, yet still you know that the Lord is in control and that his will is coming to pass and that none of his promises will ever fail. I pray that that is the case, and if not, I pray that you will take encouragement from Paul. He was writing to encourage the Philippians, but we remember that he wasn't writing just to the Philippian congregation. Through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, he was writing to us as well. And so I pray that he would be encouraging you in whatever situation you are in. But we see him trusting absolutely in God, trusting in the Christ whom he knew and that therefore there was this inner principle of joy in his heart, an inner principle that no one could take away and that he still wants to share with others. He wants that joy inexpressible that we heard about this morning to overflow to others. The Romans might take his life. They could do that, but they cannot take away his joy or his peace. That is one of the great promises that is given to the Christian. Nobody can take away the Holy Spirit dwelling within you. Nobody can take away your salvation, and nobody can steal your joy and your peace in those things. But let's take a moment now to discuss how all of this came to pass, how he came to be writing this letter from jail. Where is Philippi? What was it like? Who were the Philippians, and how did Paul come to know them? Incidentally, this is a picture of the Philippian ruins that you will find in Macedonia. I am told they are amazing. It is a UNESCO historic site. Maybe one day as I got to see Ephesus, I will also have a chance to see Philippi. But in the meantime, let's talk about the city. Philippi was originally founded as a colony in northeastern Macedonia by colonists from the island of Thanos. They were called Thacians in 359 BC. But it was captured by Alexander the Great's father, Philip, and renamed Philippi three years later. So it didn't have much of a long run of independence. But in saying that, I have told you very little about Philippi itself. Because the Philippi that Paul knew came along much later on. It is like me telling you that Fayetteville was settled by colonists from Scotland. Because almost 400 years had passed between the founding of Philippi and the time that Paul was writing. Just as almost 400 years have passed between the time of the founding of Fayetteville in our own time. So the Philippi that Paul first visited in around 51 or 52 AD was a very different place. The Romans had captured it from the Macedonians in 168 BC. And in 42 BC during the Roman Civil War that brought an end to the Roman Republic. It was the scene of the final defeat of the forces of Brutus and Cassius by the forces of Anthony and Octavian. Who later of course became Augustus Caesar. And that final battle occurred just outside of this city. This was critical because after the city Octavian turned Philippi into a Roman colony and a military outpost. They released some of their veteran soldiers. The war to defeat the men who had stabbed Caesar had finished as far as they were concerned. And they released some of their legionaries from Legion 28 to colonize the city. Which was founded and I apologize for my terrible Latin here. Colonia Victrix Philippensium meaning the colony of the victory of Philippi. From that point onwards it was a place where Italian veterans from the Roman army were given land. And it sat upon an important Roman road called the Via Ignatia. Which was a road that was constructed by the Romans in the 2nd century BC. Incidentally I learned while we were on our trip that the Greeks joke particularly in Cyprus. That the only roads in Greece that last were built by the Romans. The modern ones all fall apart. It crossed through Illyricum, Macedonia, Thracia and runs into the territory that is now part of Albania. North Macedonia, Greece and European Turkey. Why is that important? Well it's important because it meant that Philippi was a center not only of trade. And they had mines we'll talk about in a little while where they mined gold and silver. But it was a place where it was possible to go from Philippi to other areas of Macedonia. Or to turn south and to go into Greece. They had their own route 95 so to speak running right through the city. That allowed them to have concourse with all the people in Greece and up in Macedonia and into the Roman Empire. This meant that the Lord in founding his church there. Put it in a place where the inhabitants could as they did their daily trade. Carry not only letters to Rome but they could also carry the gospel to the surrounding areas. Now the citizens of this colony were regarded as citizens of Rome. And they were given a number of special privileges that ordinary inhabitants of the empire didn't have. It was in many senses a miniature Rome. Literally because they were under the municipal law of Rome. It was as though they were a colony that was in Italy actually attached to Rome. That was the way the law functioned. And they were governed by two military officers the Duumviri who were appointed directly from Rome. And the colony itself although it was relatively small. It was only about 10 ,000 people when Paul reached it. It was very wealthy as a general rule. They had gold and silver mines just outside the city. And those mines were still productive in Paul's day. It was as I said a little Rome in the midst of Macedonia. And not just in the government. It was laid out like a Roman city. And so to this day you can see that they have a Roman forum in addition to a Greek Agora. But how did Paul get to this city? How did he get there? Well let's read a little from Acts 16 which actually tells us. So if you would turn in your Bible to Acts chapter 16. And I want to begin with verse one which will tell us that Paul was actually when this all started. He was in Asia Minor. He was over in modern day Turkey on his second missionary journey. We read then he came to Derby in Lystra and behold a certain disciple was there named Timothy. The son of a certain Jewish woman who believed but his father was Greek. He was well spoken of by the brethren who were at Lystra and Iconium. Paul wanted to have him go with him and he took him and circumcised him because of the Jews who were in that region. For they all knew that his father was Greek. And as they went through the cities they delivered to them the decrees to keep which were determined by the apostles and elders of Jerusalem. So the churches were strengthened in the faith and increased in number daily. Now when they had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia. After they had come to Mysia they tried to go into Bithynia but the Spirit did not permit them. So passing by Mysia they came down to Troas and a vision appeared to Paul in the night. A man of Macedonia stood and pleaded with him saying come over to Macedonia and help us. Now many people have speculated just as an aside that this is Luke who was speaking to Paul in a vision. Now after he had seen the vision immediately we sought to go to Macedonia concluding that the Lord had called us to preach the gospel to them. Therefore sailing from Troas we ran a straight course to Samothrace and the next day came to Neapolis and from there to Philippi which is the foremost city of that part of Macedonia, a colony. And we were staying in that city for some days and on the Sabbath day we went out of the city to the riverside where prayer was customarily made and we sat down and spoke to the women who met there. Now a certain woman named Lydia heard us. She was a seller of purple from the city of Thyatira who worshiped God. The Lord opened her heart to heed the things spoken by Paul and when she and her household were baptized she begged us saying if you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord come to my house and stay so she persuaded us. And we know that Paul and Timothy stayed with Lydia for some days. They had some other encounters. I'm not going to read the rest of chapter 16 but I would encourage you to actually read all of chapter 16 tonight. It won't take you that long but you will read about the exorcism of the demon possessed slave girl which unfortunately got them into trouble because the demon allowed her unfortunately to know about things that men didn't know about. And so her owners used to get money from her that way. We'll also tell you about Paul and Silas's unjust imprisonment and then the household baptism of the Philippian jailer which is marvelous and of course one of those household baptisms that shows us that we are to be baptizing not just parents on their confession of faith but also their children. This was the first church established in Europe. Note that. And that at the explicit direction of the Holy Spirit who made it very clear that Paul was to turn the direction of his labors from Asia Minor which is modern day Turkey to Europe. He goes through Macedonia and then after that he goes into Greece and brings the gospel into Europe. Now the bond as you will read through the Philippi you can't help but notice the friendship, the love that exists between Paul and this congregation. It was peculiarly close though others had abandoned him in his imprisonment as we shall see these Philippians had not. They continued to pray for him and they continued to provide for his needs in this world. They sent him a gift. As I said I don't want to give away too many spoilers but they had sent a man by the name of Epaphroditus with a gift for him in jail and then he had sent Epaphroditus back to them with this letter. That's how he got it. And as I mentioned this letter was written from Rome during his imprisonment. The beginning of that is related in Acts 28. The reference to Caesar's household which you will read in Philippians 4 22 and the palace in Philippians 1 13. In the Greek it's Praetorium. It was probably the barrack of the Praetorium guard attached to the palace of Nero and that confirms this. So I tend to think it was during his first imprisonment at Rome. That would tend to sit with the mention of the Praetorium and that he was in the custody of the Praetorium prefect and his situation agrees with the situation in the first two years of his imprisonment that you can read about in Acts. In Acts 28 30 and 31. It's not that important whether it was the first or the second imprisonment. The fact is he's in prison. He's in prison for his faith. He's in prison for his preaching. But he does not allow that to destroy him or even to to drive him down or to change the nature of his ministry. Many people might have switched over perhaps to a martyr's ministry at this point in time and yet he does not. He continues to encourage the people to go about their their business preaching the gospel and being members of the church no matter what the circumstances are. Now the tone of this letter as we go through it you'll notice this. It's unlike most of his other letters. It contains no long doctrinal discussions. It contains no rebukes of evils that were festering in the particular church. But it is an outpouring rather of happy love and also confidence in these brothers and sisters. He loves them. He is confident in them and he wants them to be confident not in themselves. He wants them to be confident in Christ and in his promises. Like all of Paul's epistles, as you saw, it starts with a salutation. Our letters, of course, and with the identification of the person who's sending it. But the letters back there started with who this letter was from. And like most of his letters, it also starts with a prayer for the people that he is writing to. He isn't just in intending to give them information. He wants to bless them, to bless them with his letter and to bless them with his prayer. And one commentator calls the entire letter a long gush of love towards the Philippians. And it is. There's nothing wrong with that. Verses 1 and 2 that we read there, they contain an apostolic greeting. The senders are identified there. Timothy is associated with Paul. Timothy was with Paul, therefore, in his imprisonment. We remember from 2 Timothy in his second imprisonment that Paul noted that only Timothy had stayed with him. Or rather that he wanted Timothy to come to him in his imprisonment to bring things to him. Timothy remained loyal to Paul no matter what. Timothy also, you remember, was going to become very important to Paul in the Ephesian church and building them up and so on. Timothy was a genuine, he was more than just an amanuensis or a secretary for Paul. He was a helper to Paul. He was a brother in Christ, somebody who would stand with him in thick or thin. Now, Paul mentions him and he often does that. He brings the friends who are about him into prominence. That also indicates that the people in Philippi knew of him and would be interested to hear how he was doing. Timothy is in Rome with Paul when the letter is being dictated. And although Timothy is not the one who is inspired to write the letter, Paul is using him as his secretary to take it down. It's very possible that Paul had an eye disease, which made it very difficult for him to write. He calls Timothy and himself, he addresses himself as a bondservant of Jesus Christ. Now, that's a nice little word, bondservant. It conjures up the idea of indentured bondage, the idea that we're just working off a debt. But when he says bondservant, he's actually using the Greek word doulos. Doulos means literally slave. He is a slave of Christ. Some prefer the translation bondservant to kind of neaten it up. We don't like the idea of Paul calling himself a slave of Christ because of the bad connotations of that. But we remember that most of the Roman Empire, in fact, 20 % of the city there, and this would have had, as a Roman colony, a military colony, Philippi would have had a lower than normal slave population, more free men than slaves. But they still speculate that at least 20 % of those 10 ,000 people within the colony were slaves. And here is Paul saying, I too am a slave. But who is he a slave of? He's a slave of Jesus Christ. He and Timothy are slaves, and they aren't complaining about that. They understood that they were bought with a price by the Lord Jesus Christ in his sacrifice for their sake, and therefore they were owned by their master. They are completely dependent upon him, and they give him their undivided allegiance. They love this master of theirs, the Lord Jesus Christ. In fact, Paul clearly, he views it as the highest honor that we can attain to serve Christ, to have his light yoke upon us instead of the heavy chains of sin which he takes away. And he is bound to absolute submission to this Lord who is all worthy and who gave everything for his sake. Paul, note in all of his letters, never forgot what Christ had done for him, never forgot where he was when Christ found him, how he was an enemy of the church, a persecutor of the church. Somebody whom Christ, you remember, addressed on the road to Damascus saying, Paul, Paul, or rather at that time, Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me? Jesus associates himself so keenly with his people that to persecute them is to persecute him. I was thinking about that as we were hearing about how the Pakistanis are wretchedly persecuted. What their persecutors in Pakistan, the Muslims, do not recognize or realize is that in persecuting them, they are persecuting God the Son. And it will not go well for them to be counted amongst the persecutors on the last day. But he had once been a persecutor. Now he is no longer. He is a slave, a willing servant of the Lord Jesus Christ who loves him with all of his heart. Now note also at the beginning, he doesn't mention that he's an apostle. And so there's a great contrast here between letters like Galatians where he asserts his apostolic authority when he's teaching them. This is a very friendly letter. He doesn't actually need to. He knows they know that he's an apostle of the Lord. Jesus greets all of the saints in Christ. Jesus, who are in Philippi, and he abused them. He calls them saints. And what is he talking about there when he calls them saints? Haggai, literally holy ones. These are people who he considers as they are in Christ. Have you ever thought about this? We may think of ourselves as wretches. We may think of ourselves as people in whom there is nothing worthy of praise. And yet the way that the Lord looks at us is his holy ones, his ones who are set apart. His chosen ones who are even now being conformed to the image of Jesus Christ. If you are in Christ, that is who you are. You are one of his special people. In the Old Testament, the word was segula, his special treasure. Brothers and sisters, the devil wants us to think of ourselves as only what we can accomplish by our meager efforts. And let's face it, that's not much. Isaiah, at the end of his long, his long prophetic letter in Isaiah 66, he talks about righteousness, the righteousness that a holy man like himself might be able to accomplish by himself. And he says these things, our righteousnesses are but filthy rags. But Christ, what does he do? He endows us with robes of righteousness. He enrobes us, as Luther put it so very well, so that when we stand before God on the last day, the saints are seen as they are in Christ. That is who Paul sees them as. They are people who are called to be holy and who are being made holy. We have been saved by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, but we are also, and this will come out from this letter, we are also being conformed to the image of Christ. It is as that example that was given to us a little while ago of the, as we were going through the Bible study of the princess who had been made, or rather the commoner who had been made into the queen. She was given the title, but then gradually she was taught the courtly graces and made into somebody who everybody understood and saw was the wife of the king. They are the people of God. They are the saints of Christ and that because of their union with the Lord Jesus Christ. All of the saints together in their communal sense are being addressed by Paul. This letter would have been probably read just as we read it in the midst of worship and so on, and then copied and passed on to the other congregations, the other saints throughout the world.
Fresh update on "anthony" discussed on BTV Simulcast
"Aviv exchange, I can tell you that we have seen no abnormality in our trading, both in the equities and the bonds and our derivatives market. So as far as our local market, we didn't see anything that is awkward or something like that. I also want to add that according to the AUM that the index in New York is running, in no case influence can be significant to our market. Thank Have you ramped up some of the security around the data or some of the offices and what is the threshold for you to close the exchange or trade on the exchange? If the situation escalates, what kind of scenario would that be? I guess so. So Israel is used to military operation. A few years ago also because of the COVID, we developed the ability to walk completely digital. So we are very familiar with the operating exchange in numerous ways. So overall, I don't see a scenario in which we do not operate the normal way. And you know that Hamas attack and invasion took place on Saturday, October 7th and on October 8th, everything was operating the normal Clearly in the state of Israel, because of the situation, there are being more precautions that are being taken care of. But I think overall, everything is in control. So, Itay, Why then the skepticism would you say? I mean, why are there, you know, some, why are some people weighing their concerns in on what's happening if, as you say, everything is operating as normal and performing well? You have to remember that this year. I mean, if you look between 2020 to 2022, our leading practices, like T .A. 125, T .A. 90 were the best of the world. All of the tables. But in 2023, we've had two extreme scenarios. One was the proposed judicial reform by the government. Everything in Israel was dealing with the judicial reform. And two months ago, we had the war surprisingly doing a obviously major impact on our economy. So this year, our indices are not performing well. I'm very confident that in market 2020 the will come back. Actually, even if you look at the past two months after the first major drop that we had because of the military operation, the market has come back. And I think that because of the resilience of the economy, we've had a major impact on capital flows. You said that you didn't find anything suspicious, but has there been any meaningful and lasting change to the levels of activity or the source of activity, be it domestic or foreign capital? Since the beginning of the war, we did see some international investors pulling away money from our equity market. What happened is that the Israeli institutions that weren't too active in the first nine months of demands because of the judicial reform acknowledge the fact that the market is very cheap and also they are used to this type of situation. So they came in and bought a relatively big amount of money. We've seen in the past couple of weeks the international investors coming back to our equity market and I think as long as the military remains of Gaza, this is something that investors from the world are calculating basically with the look in the market because in the first few weeks there was a big concern that also our north border with Hezbollah will be in heavy military and all of these situations can that affect the whole region. Luckily that's not the case. Certainly, but definitely a story we're following and the effects on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange. But Itay, I want to thank you for your time.

MMA Fighter Takes Down Knife-Wielding Attacker
"The video is in the article. The footage went viral several days later leading to Baez making an appearance on TMZ and explaining what happened before, during and after his altercation. The man was identified by police as Omar Marrero and charged with two colonies, according to CBS news. What he likely did not know was that Baez held a 5 2 -1 record as a professional mixed martial artist most of his bouts with fight time promotions. Baez also told TMZ that he holds a black belt in jiu -jitsu, wrestled in college, practiced and has kickboxing for 15 years. So generally, he's a very bad person to pick a fight with, to the one holding a knife. And as they point out, this isn't the first time someone has had a fight. He's a very bad person to pick including an attempted car thief against Kevin Holland, a great fighter, an attempted mugging of strawweight Palina Viana, an attempted car theft against Jordan Williams, a home invasion of light heavyweight Anthony Smith, a drunken swing at Hall Hall of of Famer Matt Serra, a nighttime break -in at ex -light heavyweight champ John Jones' house. Can you imagine? Probably the greatest MMA fighter of all time, certainly one of them, an attempted stabbing of featherweight Maquon Americani's brother in an attempted mugging of legend Renzo Gracie. Renzo Gracie, the Gracie family. family. Unbelievable. There's a reason you see the word attempted a lot a in lot their attempted, because they all got their asses kicked. I'll be back.

Fresh "Anthony" from Mark Levin
"So Biden says, you know, rather than them taking, why don't we give why why don't we give the terrorists in the Middle East, Iran and the rest of them Judea and Samaria, the so called West Bank. They don't have to conquer it. We'll just give it to them. You understand under Biden's watch, Ukraine might be defeated and those people slaughtered and overrun, and we might have World War through starting right at Poland or Romania. You understand this to the Balkan states? We might have World War three in the Middle East because he won't put down Iran and what they're doing, they're and getting more and more provocative and aggressive.

Oh no, that was Bryan Adams, but we had a great time. Coming up on this podcast, I'm gonna do an NBA Power Poll at the top because there's no games as I'm taping this on Tuesday. So let's, where are we after two weeks? I tried to fly through this. I limited myself to 22 minutes. I think I went two minutes over, but I flew through it, tried to get off as many comments as I possibly could. And then our old friend Malcolm Gladwell is gonna come on and do some sports hour stuff. There's some things that he's noticed about direction sports are going in that he doesn't like, and we're gonna try to fix it. So that's the podcast, first, our friends from Pearl Jam. Here we go. All right, I'm gonna throw an NBA Power Poll at you. I'm not sure I'm gonna do this every Tuesday, but I definitely wanna do this some Tuesdays. I'm gonna go through all 30 teams as fast as possible. And I'm gonna throw things out that I feel like are important when necessary. Pot shots, important comments, things I've noticed, some fake trades, you've known me for a while. It's gonna be all the typical stuff. Going backwards from 30 to one, I'll give you the groups as we go. The first group is called the Dregs. That's Washington number 30. They are 30th in defense. And the only reason they're 30th in defense is because we only have 30 teams. I actually think there's some way they could have been 36th in defense. They're the only team in the entire league that I do not wanna watch on league pass for any reason at all. They're one and five, 15 .6 point differential against them. Shoot this team into the sun. I cannot believe House thought this team was gonna go over 24 wins. They might not go over 14 wins. They're awful. I never want them on my TV. Next group, probably the lottery. I say probably, but I'm gonna zip through these teams and then go back to somebody. 29 Utah, 28 Portland, 27 Detroit, 26 San Antonio, 25 Charlotte, who is way more fun than I expected they would be to watch, and 24 Chicago. It just feels like the lottery's in the future for all these teams. I wanna talk about San Antonio really quick. Three and four, kind of a sneaky, tough schedule. They played Phoenix twice, the Clippers, Dallas, that goofy Indiana team, Houston, and Toronto. They're minus 8 .6 point differential because they've gotten blown out a couple of times, and they're 29th on defense, which I was surprised by per 100 possessions. The thing that I wanted to point out here, because this one Benyama thing is super important. This is the best teenager that's come into the league, at least since LeBron. We can debate. LeBron, I think in year two, for two months at least, was a teenager when he was putting up 27, seven, and seven. When he started his 27, seven, seven cycle. Wembe might be the best teenager I've ever seen. They're starting Jeremy Sohan at point guard, and Pop's been transparent about this. No, no, we know we're gonna take some lumps. We're trying to figure this out. I went to the game when they played the Clippers, I talked about it in a previous pod, and it was just an absolute debacle, watching poor Sohan try to run the offense, bring the ball up. Now we're seeing teams starting to pressure them because he's not a point guard. He's a small forward. There's crazy stats now. Trey Jones, just by being on this team and not being Jeremy Sohan, is now one of the best advanced metrics point guards of all time. Right now, his per 100 on -off is plus 28 .3 because Sohan is minus 22 .7. That's how disparate the two things are. Which brings me to my point, this is too important. You have the best teenager maybe ever. You have one of the best league pass players already in the entire league in Wimby. I have no idea how long he's gonna stay healthy, knock on wood, hear me knock really loud. I just got my dog going. No, that was me, dumb ass. They need one more point guard. TJ McConnell is on Indiana, and they have Halliburton, who's averaging a 24 -12. He's awesome. They have Nembhard, who's great as a backup. McConnell's like, he's 13 minutes a game. He's clearly a trade piece for them. Just go get him. I'm not saying San Antonio has to make the playoffs, but they need to be entertaining, and Wimby needs to play with point guards. He clearly needs just to play off people, high screens, all that stuff. They need one more point guard. TJ McConnell is my choice. They have all their own firsts. They're not gonna trade those obviously, but they have some goofy picks. They have Charlotte's top 14 protected first. They have a pretty good Chicago first that I wouldn't give up. They have a first swap with Boston. There's ways to do this. I would just put that Charlotte pick next year on the table and just grab them because you guys hit the lottery. Literally, with Wimby -Dyama, literally hit the lottery. You hit the lottery and you hit the lottery. Get to do two point guards. We're not asking for much here. I wanna watch this guy. I wanna enjoy him play basketball. All right, next section is panic time. Number 23, Memphis. They're one and six. They finally got out to Schneider. And number 22, Sacramento, who lost twice to Houston in three days by 18 and 25. No Darren Fox for either game. Panic time in this respect. I know we're six games in the season, seven games in the season, but the West is one of those things where you're gonna look up and the car is left. The car has left the driveway and your family is gone. You're gonna be basically Kevin and home alone if you don't get your shit together. And I don't even wanna be two games under 500 in the West. That's how deep and good the West is. So when you're one and six, like all of a sudden two and 12, two and 13, Sacramento could all of a sudden be three and nine. I would just be nervous constantly. This is not like last year when the Lakers started out two and 10 and ended up making the playoffs. Nobody is doing that this year. The cutoff line is gonna be 46 wins. Memphis looks, they just can't score. And I think it's gonna be really, we talked about this verno last week. It's gonna be really hard for them to crawl back and be at least like 11 and 14, something like that by the time Ja comes back. The Sacramento thing, we predicted this when we did the over -under preview, like the conference is way better and they stayed basically the same. And now Fox is hurt. So it can take Fox going out for 10 games and all of a sudden you're not even in the playing game. I would just be nervous, so it's both of those teams. Again, it's early. Next group, friskier than we hoped. We have number 21, Brooklyn. Ben Simmons averaging almost 11 rebounds and seven assists a game. And yet you can't play him at crunch time, bizarre. Number 20, Orlando. Number 19, Houston. Number 18, Indiana. And number 17, Toronto. Just quickly on Houston, a delightful league pass team. I had no idea. It's like being at a buffet dinner and somebody brings like some, have you ever had a fried oyster? It's like, great, I'll try that. And then it's delicious. They play hard. I like watching them. And I did not expect a Shungun to be a potential all -star, but that's where we are. They're three and three. Again, they beat Sacramento twice, we'll see. But Orlando at number 20. Every time I do this, I'm gonna have a BS all -star of the week. I used to do this when I wrote my column back in the day. I used to call them the Bill Simmons all -stars, just people that I just liked for whatever reason. I love Jalen Suggs. I don't really know fully what he is. He tries harder than everybody on every other team. He really gives a shit. He feels additive in all these different ways. And yet at the same time, he'll absolutely like airball a three in one of the biggest moments of the game. But that guy cares. I watched a game where he got this hustle rebound. Can't remember who they, they lost at the buzzer. Get this hustle rebound and dribble back out and took a three and missed it and put his jersey over his head for like the next minute and a half. I actually think he might've been crying. He was so upset they lost. He is the most competitive random guy in the league. I love Jalen Suggs. Oh, as Saruti said, it's the Laker game. I love Jalen Suggs. I don't know what he is. He might just end up being like a seventh man on a championship team at some point. He's gonna have a moment on a good team. I don't know if Orlando's gonna be the team, but it's gonna happen for that dude. I also really like Anthony Black more than I thought, but we'll see. It's early for this team. Palo hasn't gotten going. Somehow they're four and three. We'll see when the schedule gets harder. Toronto at number 17, just the Lakers miss Schroeder. And I like what Schroeder's doing in Toronto. They're three and four, but they easily could be five and two. I've been watching them because I have their over under, I bet on. And I like where Toronto's at. I think they're better than they were last year. I think they're at least a playing team. Number 18, Indiana though. So their second in offensive rating and 25th in defense. In the 25th, I was actually surprised it wasn't worse. They can't guard anybody. They're shooting 43s a game. Their top six guys are all over 40 % three point shooting. They're kind of like the 80s Nuggets, but with threes. And they just play with a certain pace. And some days it's going to be bad. Like the Celtics put 155 points on them and it probably could have been 160 if they'd made some shots. Hal Burton's special. He's a 24 -12 this year. But the crazy thing about their offense is that Matherin's been terrible. And Matherin was a guy that they were like, this is going to be our guy. He's making a leap. We're going to trade Buddy Heald. We got to give the card keys to Matherin in that spot. And he's been bad. And their offense has still been pretty good. This is a team that anytime you see them, I don't know if you bet basketball, but if they're like plus 11, plus 12, it's like they could beat anybody any night. I'm just telling you. I'm not saying they're going to win a round in the playoffs, but just night to night, that's a team that they could just go 22 for 45 from three, make some shots. And Hal Burton, they actually should be five and two. Hal Burton blew the last possession against Charlotte the other night. But I've enjoyed watching them. I've watched an insane amount of basketball, by the way. All right, next group, the wildcards. I don't have a lot to say about these teams, but we'll go in order. Number 16, New Orleans, just seem jinxed. I'll come back to them in a second. Number 15, Cleveland. I want to see them with Garland and just, I want to watch them for a couple of weeks. I like the Struce edition, but we'll see. The Knicks, they're three and four. Nice win against the Clippers. The Randall thing continues to be nuts. Now he's taking out guys in the other team. Clippers 13, just traded for Harden. We talked about the Knicks and Clippers last week. Look, the Clippers, they played one game and they got killed by the Knicks. They're worse. I told you that last week. Still feel that way. Guess what they can't do now? Any transition stuff. The Knicks, 26 to six in fast break points last night. Rebounding. They got out, rebounded by 17 by the Knicks. Harden just brings so many things that you don't want in a starting five, but then he brings the great passing and the scoring and he can have the ball all the time. They don't need anyone to have the ball all the time because they have all these other guys who need the ball. I just don't like the trade. I continue to not like it and I don't understand it. I actually liked the team they had before they made the trade. So congrats again, Clippers. Number 12, Miami. 28th offensively. Kind of feels worse when you watch them. They haven't had their full team for a couple weeks. I'm not gonna judge them at all until December. I'm not gonna judge Dallas either. Dallas I have at number 11. They're six and one, fourth in offense. They've had a really easy schedule. So that's why, let's see what happens. Their one loss is to Denver. Let's see what happens when they play some tough teams all in a row and have one of those four games in six nights or three on the road. One of those situations. But they are in better shape than they were last year. And you look at the Grant Williams piece, which I'm not spiteful when I watch my old players. I'm rooting for Grant Williams. It's like seeing somebody you dated that you still have a good relationship with. It was nice to see him do well for them. Derek Lively seems like they have something. We talked about him last week, but he's at least like a rim runner in that kind of Nick Claxton world, but maybe a little more violent alley -oop or a little young Clint Cappelli. The Kyrie thing is the piece that I'm really interested in this. He finally had a good game last night, but for this season, 24 % shooting, 3 .8 free throws a game, which are always the two numbers to look at with Kyrie. What's he shooting threes? Is he getting in the line? And so far it's been neither, but he seems happy. When you watch them, they've been a surprisingly pleasant watch, and he seems like in a good spot. So I don't want to jinx it because as annoying as he's been over the years, and you know my stance on Kyrie, I just don't trust him. And I just feel like a seven -year track record of imploding kind of has to start to mean something after a while, but it is fun to watch him play basketball. And it does feel like he's got a specific spot on this team. They don't have to rely on him too much. It's very similar to where he was in 15 and 16 and 17 with the Cavs where he could kind of float in and out like a cat with LeBron. It's like, I'm feeling it. Oh, all right, let's give Kyrie the ball. The shooting going down though, it's a small sample size, but they also haven't been playing tough teams yet. And I'm just monitoring that because with guards, it can kind of sometimes go sideways pretty fast, and you don't realize it happened until after it happened. Just quickly going backwards to number 16, New Orleans, because they lost Ingram, they lost McCollum already. And they have this Hawkins who they drafted that everybody liked coming out of the draft, but the fact that he can play right away has actually kind of saved them a little bit. I just, I still feel like we need to do some sort of ceremony or something with them. Like we need the people from the Conjuring to just do something with New Orleans basketball. It just shouldn't be this bad every year. Your team shouldn't have two, three major injuries every year. You should have good luck at some point. And this goes back to the seventies. Remember, when they moved, when they became the New Orleans Jazz, their first major, major giant trade was for Gail Goodrich with the Lakers. They had to give up two first rounders, and he immediately blew out his Achilles. He played, I'm gonna say, less than a season. And one of the picks turned out to be Magic Johnson. So that's where we started with New Orleans, and it's been awful ever since. Nothing good has happened in this team other than they've won a couple of lotteries, but even the lotteries they won, the Davis, Anthony when they were in Charlotte before they got to New Orleans, they bring him to New Orleans and he wants to leave. And then they win the Zion thing, which seemed like the luckiest thing that ever happened to them. And meanwhile, we're still waiting for him to play two straight months. So Conjuring people, something. We need something to happen with that team. All right, the top 10. We're at a good pace right now. Where are we at? Yeah, feeling good. This is working. Young and hungry is the next thing. We got Oklahoma City at number 10 and Atlanta at number nine. If you remember, Atlanta was one of the, these are the two teams I was going nuts for before the season for their over -unders. I love the Atlanta over -under. I love the New Orleans over. And I like what I've seen from both. OK sees four and three, Atlanta's four and three. Atlanta's sixth in offense. And that's notable because Trae Young has sucked again shooting west. He's 28 % from three. Last year's 33 % from three. This might not be happening the next Steph Curry thing. Like what age does he have to hit where we have to go? All right, he's not the next Steph Curry. Because I think I hit that age last year at age, when I was age 53. I think I hit that for Trae. They killed Minnesota, which is notable. We'll talk about Minnesota in a second. But they really, I watched that game and they really, really, really handled them. I like this Atlanta team. And I think there's a path for them to be a three or a four seed if Trae can get going. And then OKC, trade for a big already. You're a guy short, like stop. You guys have a chance to be like a 50 win team. What are you doing? I want to see what's going on with Josh Getty in about two weeks. Whether it looks different than it has for the first couple of weeks here. I don't like, he's not going in the free throw line at all. 1 .3 a game. 26 % three point shooting, which we knew. He can't shoot threes. But there's also like the Chet piece of it. Seems like it's throwing them off. And I've watched games where they've taken them out at crunch time.

In fact, Max is saying that the Bitcoin price action can see a daily God candle of $100,000 in a single day, sending the Bitcoin price action north of 143,000, tapping his short-term target of $220,000 per coin. Let's discuss what's going on with Qatar. And yes, the Qatar president did meet with Bukele. They've been talking about this for quite some time. This is well-known news, according to Max Kaiser. So let's break this baby down. Here we go. Check it, check it. Key points. Qatar's sovereign wealth fund is rumored to be considering a 500-billy investment into the King. Let's frickin' go. Yes, the rumors have fueled the surge of the Bitcoin price. In fact, we're now up, hitting 44,000. It's on a hell of a run. Factors driving the Bitcoin rise include speculation of the lower US interest rates and optimism about the spot Bitcoin ETF apps, which are likely to be approved with a 90% chance of being approved in roughly, what, 35 days. If confirmed, Qatar's investment could have a profound implication for legitimizing and boosting Bitcoin. However, the rumors are currently unverified, and caution is warranted, given the volatility of the crypto market. But what's behind the sudden interest from one of the world's largest sovereign wealth funds, and that, what it could mean for the future of the pioneering crypto? Let's talk about it. Drivers behind Qatar's interest is known for taking a long-term strategic approach into investments, and as such, the reported interest likely stems from recognizing the long-term growth potential of Bitcoin as it continues cementing itself as the legitimate asset class. Qatar also surely sees the high upside potential as highlighted in Bitcoin's four-year boom and bust market cycles, which we call the Bitcoin halving. So here's what started it off. Right here, December 3rd, and you heard it from here first because I covered it during our pump watch party. Max Keiser tweeted, "'The God Candle,' a $100,000 uptick in Bitcoin is in play." And that's so sexy, I'm gonna repeat it. "'The God Candle,' a $100,000 uptick in Bitcoin is in play. "'It will shift the global access "'of wealth and power in one tick.' "'Send it and let's go.'" And he continues, check it. I have one word for you, $100,000 Bitcoin, God Candle fans, Qatar. The rumors are getting very loud about this. Their sovereign wealth fund rumored to be looking to buy a half a trillion worth of BTC. Now here's some actual photos of the president of Qatar with President Najib Bukele, the president of El Salvador, who laid out the blueprint. And of course, Max is the mastermind behind all this as he works very closely with Najib Bukele. So for Max to share this rumor that he says everyone is aware of in the inside, there has to be some legitimacy to it because Max doesn't make up BS. Max is the real deal. Max is the one up over 20 million percent on his Bitcoin investment for Christ's sake since 2011. So much respect to Max Keiser. Here's another photo when they flew in the president to meet Najib Bukele, which is all documented as well. So this is a real, real story, fam. This ain't no pie in the sky. But back to our story here, check it out. If confirmed, an investment of this size would represent a watershed moment for Bitcoin. Hell yeah, we're talking 1.3 trillion Bitcoin market cap, you know what I mean, sending us north of a trillion, which is probably the height we hit back in November of 2021. It can spark a snowball effect. Well, let's get this snowball rolling. With other major funds and major institutional investors quickly moving to grab a slice of a finite BTC. Now, potential impacts on a Bitcoin at a 500 billion investment would be over 10% of Bitcoin's total market cap. It may be enough to the single-handedly kickstart Bitcoin's next major market move. And we're already moving, fam. The price effects would be immense, likely triggering a frenzy amongst retail traders and speculators. It would also further legitimize Bitcoin in the eyes of the mainstream financial world and expedite formal regulation, which is a necessary step for even wider adoption. But needless to say, early Bitcoin investors would find their bets handsomely rewarded. You can say that again. How cool is it to front run sovereign wealth funds and nation states? So congratulations, my Bitcoin hodlers. Proceeding with caution, however, promising, investors should view the recent rumors with caution, so please do note that as well. We know Bitcoin is highly volatile because Bitcoin and volatility is like life force, and the force is strong up with BTC, just saying. And additionally, details on Qatar's plans are limited. The figure of 500 billion may be ambitious or unrealistic. Other sources also cast doubt on the reports. What are your thoughts? Qatar's sudden interest makes for an intriguing development with potentially significant impacts across global finance, but concrete details aren't here yet, but you will get them here first on Crypto News Alerts. But we have some more, we're not done. Here's some other coverage on Qatar's rumored 500 billion Bitcoin investment fueling a market frenzy.

Boxing with Chris Mannix, part of the Volume Sports Podcast Network calling Cowherds Podcast Network's second show this week. If you missed my thoughts on the Tyson Fury, Francis and Ghanu fight to record an episode right after the decision was announced in Saudi Arabia, go back a couple of days, check out that episode as well. Got a great show lined up for you this week. Keith Idec, senior writer, boxingscene .com, good friend of the podcast. We continue the conversation on Fury and the Ghanu. We talk about the future for both these guys. Francis and Ghanu, should he go back to mixed martial arts? Should he stay in boxing for one more fight? Tyson Fury looks like he's headed towards a showdown with Alexander Usyk, but what about after that? Is there still a market for a second fight between Fury and Ghanu? Plus, a lot of things happening in boxing. Shaky Foster, he had a monster win this past week. And Keyshawn Davis, strange times for Keyshawn Davis these days after having the result of his fight overturned because of marijuana. Talk to Keith about that as well. A little bit later in the show, Jamel Herring, the former 130 -pound champion. He is mounting a comeback for one more run at a world title. He fights early next week, the rare Tuesday night fight in New York City. He joins me to talk about all things with his career, why he's coming back, what he hopes to accomplish, and why he believes as he approaches his late 30s, he can be a player in the 130 -pound division. Stick around, great conversation with Jamel Herring. As always, subscribe, rate, review this podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, wherever you download podcast. It certainly helps us keep the show going each and every week. All right, Keith Idak, senior writer, BoxingScene .com does a great job covering boxing for that website. So Keith, the boxing world and the MMA world are still buzzing over the Tyson Fury, Francis and Ghanu fight this past weekend. I gave my thoughts on a short podcast right after the fight. So just let's start by giving me yours. What was your reaction as you're watching Fury and Ghanu transpire? Yeah, I think I was surprised. Like most people, Chris, I didn't think that it would be all that competitive. I did think Fury would have to be wary of Ghanu's power because the guy obviously can punch. I didn't know what his delivery system would look like or anything like that, which Tyson Fury himself said he didn't know either because when I spoke to Tyson Fury about maybe eight, nine days before the fight, whatever it was, he said, look, I'm not putting any stock in these videos that they're releasing because I don't know if I were doing something on a video that I were putting out to the world, I wouldn't show what I'm trying to do. So he goes, I'm assuming he didn't really show what he's capable of doing. So if he did underestimate him, it wasn't based on that. And he kind of said, after the fight, he said, look, I didn't underestimate him. He goes, I didn't know whether he was good or bad because there was nothing really of substance to look at to know one way or the other. That maybe subconsciously, Chris, he took him lightly. I mean, you would have to say that to some degree. But I also think people should give Ghanu credit for doing what he did. I mean, the guy has never boxed in a professional bout before. He got a little bit of amateur experience and everything.
A highlight from 49 - Week 8 Recap
"Welcome to the Ultraflex football podcast where we have fun with our friends while we talk about football. I'm your host, Anthony Sutton. With is me Rob Green and Ryan Wheeler. I skipped right over your intro, Rob. We got football to talk about. What's up? We don't need to say what's up anyway. Rob, we've been talking for like five, seven minutes before we even started this podcast. Did you cut your hair? No. Oh, oh, you just got it. Oh, wow. I was like, dude, it looks like your hair's cut. Oh, never mind. It's tied back enough. You can't tell. All right. Well, uh, speaking of haircuts, I got it for any bald guys out there listening to this podcast and those guys who, you know, should probably go bald. You know who you are. Uh, shaving with conditioner is the way to go. I never knew it until last week. Started shaving with con dude, my head. It doesn't hurt after I shave. Cause like when I use shaving cream, it kind of burns a little bit. My head shave every day. Soft. Yeah. Every day. It makes sense. Right. I use conditioner to the hair and it gets soft. So shiny, looking smooth, shiny cover your eyes. If you were watching on YouTube, but anyway, um, yeah. Shave with a conditioner for all those who are bald or should be bold. So did you try it on your face? I don't shave my face. I just use an electric one. Trimmer. Yeah. Anywhere else in the body? Uh, I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. I honestly don't know. I, I've never tried to use conditioner anywhere else. Shave my legs next time. I don't, I don't know if we've officially announced that we have, uh, a Tik TOK that we do put some shorts on shorts. That's shorts on. That's what shorts on. Yeah. We try on different shorts guys. Like, is that, I guess that is like the right, is that the right media verbiage shorts, right? And that's, that's for YouTube. I don't know if that is the same thing. Either way. We have a Tik TOK. So check it out. I did see on there, Ryan, a lot of people are saying. That you sound like an owl who cracks me up every time. Um, but all right, let's get to, uh, let's get to, uh, Ryan, what, what albums are we doing today? Oh yeah. Okay. So today, um, my wife gives us the albums. So today she gave me Gwen Stefani to, for us to do this. And I was like, well, do we do Gwen Stefani or do we do no doubt because Gwen Stefani is both.

If you guys haven't checked it out, you definitely should. I want to run through our songs real quick. I have what you waiting for. Rich girl, holla back girl, cool from her album. And then from no doubt I have spiderwebs. Excuse me, mr. Just a girl, happy now and different people, Rob. Yeah. I'm choosing to skip the Gwen Stefani album. I'm going to do just the no doubt album. Sorry guys. Hey, you, the climb 16 Sunday morning and don't speak. I'll try to sneak in the four from the other one. You can see if you can pick them out. I'm not even gonna say what they are.

So speaking of a long way to go, we're halfway through the football season. We've got the second half coming up here soon. So let's talk about football.
BTP-LOT5 Challenges in Suffering, Part 2 The Life of St. Teresa of Avila Beginning to Pray with Dr. Anthony Lilles Discerning Hearts Podcast - burst 4
"The interiority of contemplative prayer, the interiority that recollection demands, means allowing the truth of God to come into my heart and cast light on all the broken judgments I've made about myself, about the world, about my neighbor, and about God himself. And as that light is cast upon, I realize there are whole bunches of things that I need to let go of so that I can receive God's judgment into my heart. Insofar as spiritual reading helps us do that, then we want to engage in spiritual reading. Insofar as spiritual reading prevents us from dealing with the repentance, the compunction, the bad judgments that we need to let go of, then that reading is a waste of time, it's not really going to help us enter deep into prayer.
A highlight from BTP-LOT5 Challenges in Suffering, Part 2 The Life of St. Teresa of Avila Beginning to Pray with Dr. Anthony Lilles Discerning Hearts Podcast
"We now continue with part two of our conversation. Now, Anthony, there may be listeners out there who will hear about this experience that she has, that with this good book, The Third Spiritual Alphabet, and they'll say, well, I need to run out and go get that book, and I'm going to need to read that too. What would you advise folks as they begin to hear about the spiritual reading of those great spiritual saints that we get to know? My concern is that we might be resting with something that is really fruitful for us. We might be just running from book to book. I don't know, Teresa might smack me on the head for that one, but what's your thought? I think there's two things. In the beginning of the spiritual life, I think it's really important to do a lot of spiritual reading, a lot of reading of good spiritual books, and Osuna's book is one of the great spiritual classics, so no harm would come from reading it. So that's just true in general. If we want to live a prayerful life, we need to find good prayerful literature. We need to spend a little bit less time watching YouTube and following the latest news stories and a little bit more time learning how to read. This is a big problem we have in our culture today is that we've lost the art of reading, and we have struggles paying attention for longer periods of time. Reading is one of those practices, if it's done prayerfully, that can lead into a deeper recollection, a state of soul that's very, very good for our humanity. So I would never want to discourage anyone from reading. But Chris, you've also brought up another problem that happens. Sometimes somebody gets so into reading spiritual literature, they substitute reading one book after another after another for time that they ought to be wasting with the Lord. I speak about contemplative prayer or this prayer of recollection is in a certain way wasting time with the Lord. You're not achieving anything. You're not learning anything. You're not getting any more information. You're just allowing yourself to rest in His presence, to rest in His goodness, as she says in this particular chapter. And that activity is so important. So here we get to, I think, the meat of your criticism that is kind of an enemy for contemplative prayer. And that is today, especially our souls because of technology, because of the amount of information that is at our fingertips, we're kind of information junkies. And so we need to act against that tendency by doing what you've just said, Chris, and that is discerning carefully our spiritual reading. This is where having a good spiritual friend or a spiritual director or even a priest you can talk to from time to time kind of direct you to literature that will be most beneficial for you so that you're not chasing everything down. Here on Discerning Hearts, again, one of the beauties of this particular resource, Chris, that you have so generously put together for all of us is that it has shows like this where you get to really hunker down into a particular book and read along with these discussions. So if there are those of you who are listening to these podcasts, I highly, highly recommend that you get the book The Life of Teresa of Avila or La Vida de Teresa de Jesus. And I invite you to read along the chapters as we go through these conversations. And the idea of these conversations is to help the text come more alive for you. And so going back to your question, Chris, when we hear about things that Teresa of Avila reads, is it good to kind of note that? Should we look at that? It could be good for us, but I'd bounce it off. Everybody is in such a different place. On the whole, those who are trying to make a good beginning, it's good for you to read a little bit more. And on the whole, for those of you who made a good beginning, but the Lord is inviting for you to spend a little bit more time in silence, you need to be cautious about filling up that time of silence with becoming an information junkie. You need to be surrendered to the love of the Lord. You need to learn to rest in His goodness for this prayer of recollection to bear fruit in your life. I'm so glad you said that, because if you can take into context the time that Teresa is living in, that's the 1500s. Books are now available to people, but not to the extent that they are today. She didn't have a UPS truck drop off a stack that was just purchased quickly on the internet, and I think that's all good. I mean, there is great spiritual reading out there, and there's writing that's happening.
A highlight from Gavin Wax
"Ladies and gentlemen, looking for something new and original, something unique and without equal. Look no further. Here comes the one and only Eric Metaxas. Wow. It's Monday. Happy Monday. Do you know where you are? You're in New York City. No. I got to tell you something. I've been saying the same thing, but I've been so busy that it gets to a point where it's unhealthy. So, folks, feel free. I covet your intercession. If you don't understand that phrase, good. I covet your intercession because it's been tough. Good stuff, but last week I was in Omaha, Nebraska. This weekend I was in Colorado Springs. I want to talk about that. Just to let you know, in hour one today, in a couple of minutes, we're talking to Gavin Wax. He's the head of the New York Young Republicans Club. We're going to be talking about Israel, current events, Biden, Trump, everything current events, and he's terrific, so in a couple of minutes. In hour two, we're talking to the world's tallest man that we've ever interviewed. He is seven feet tall, and when he came into the studio, I got physically frightened. Suddenly I felt like a mouse, and I ran. You grabbed his harp and you ran out of the castle. And I clambered down the beanstalk, and then I realized, no, that was all in my head. But he's seven feet tall. I want to be clear, John Disneyland has a lot of things to say. We don't talk about his height, but I want to tell you, Nehemiah Strong, he wrote a book called Nehemiah Strong. I won't say anything except it is fantastic, fantastic, and we've got to have him back. He's an amazing man, but he is the tallest person I've ever interviewed, and we decided that he's the tallest person I'm ever going to interview. We're putting a cap on it, so anybody who is taller than seven feet, if you say, we emailed the program, we sent you our book, I'm sorry, those are the rules. John Disneyland is the tallest person I'm ever going to interview, okay? We had to cap it. At some point, it gets out of hand. It's like a limbo pole. It's like if you go any higher, you're out. Something like that, or the opposite. But honestly, we just had to put a cap on it. You've got to have limits. You've got to make rules, folks. Seven feet, that's it. I'm sorry, okay? I don't make the rules, except in this case I did. All right, so that's what we have coming up today, really, really strong conversations. Tomorrow, in hour one, I have a next -level conversation with the great Naomi Wolf. You'll see. That's hour one tomorrow. She's a big deal. She's a gift to this country at this time, I got to tell you. Later on in the week, we have Doug Giles. He's the hippie -dippie weatherman that kills lions. Always fun. Yes. We've got a lot of guests coming up. And then tomorrow, we're filming, this week, we're filming some Socrates in the Studio events, which I can't say too much about that. But in December, we're launching a streaming platform, Socrates Plus. So exciting. And we're going to be posting some of these things. Heather McDonald, Anthony Bradley, whom I know from the King's that we're finally doing some Socrates in the Studio events. But to get back to where I've been, I was in Omaha. I spoke at Hank Kunneman's church last week. I emailed Pastor Hank and his wife, Brenda. I said, you know, I'm going to be in Omaha for this event with the Speravita Institute. By the way, the Speravita Institute, amazing, amazing. I keep meeting these heroes. It was incredible. But so I spoke at Pastor Hank's church. I just went to dinner. They said, oh, we have a Wednesday night service. Would you preach? So I did. Then we went to Colorado Springs for Jim Dobson, who is a living legend and a great American hero. Doesn't get greater. He puts on a thing at the Broadmoor Hotel every year called The Gathering. The Gathering sounds like creepy a seventies movie. The Gathering, right? Yeah, it does. Yeah, The Gathering. I think it's a I think it's a role playing game that you buy packs of The Gathering. Yeah. Were there robes and hoods? Yeah, I thought of I thought of a title for a for a bad horror film called The Blooding. I knew Chris would laugh. The Blooding. Yeah. The Gathering. Anyway. Anyway, so you brought hearing you brought your amulets to The Gathering. Yes. The Jim Dobson puts us on every year. And I want to say Charlie Kirk spoke. And he just you know, he's got nothing new. He's it's a lot of fluff, basically. A lot of a lot of fluff. No, he's such he's such a wonderful. It's such a joy to to hear Charlie. Ben Carson spoke. Jack Hibbs spoke. I put this on on Twitter and on Instagram. But to be around folks like that is so encouraging because there's they're saying a lot of what I'm saying. And I realized they didn't get it from me. This is God speaking, you know, some truth to encourage us. So it was it was wonderful. I spoke on Saturday night, followed by Gary Bauer. Gary Bauer. We got to get him on the program. Gave a speech. I just thought this was so amazing. It was such an amazing speech because normally I go places on the speaker. I don't get to hear people. And it was absolutely amazing. There was also a video from the new speaker, Mike Johnson. Incredible. We're going to be talking about him with Gavin Wax today. But honestly, it was it was it was such a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful thing. But we've got to get Gary Bauer here in the studio because some of the stuff he spoke about, I just thought it was just beautiful, powerful, powerful stuff. And he's taken on a position with the James Dobson Family Institute. So anyway, OK, that was that was incredible. And then your wife joined you, too, which is always fun. And Suzanne joined me, which is always fun and wonderful that we get to travel together. She may go with me next week to Dallas. I'll be in Dallas. I'll be in Chicago at the end of this week.

I think a lot of people just memorize bits. He actually can improvise in the voice like he's done it so long. He knows that's no that's the genius is that you could say anything. And I was asking him like real journalistic questions and he responds no matter what you throw at him.

We're putting a cap on it, so anybody who is taller than seven feet, if you say, we emailed the program, we sent you our book, I'm sorry, those are the rules, John Disneyland is the tallest person I'm ever going to interview. We had to cap it. At some point, it gets out of hand. It's like a limbo pole. If you go any higher, you're out. Something like that, or the opposite. But honestly, we just had to put a cap on it. You've got to have limits. You've got to make rules, folks. Seven feet, that's it. I'm sorry. I don't make the rules, except in this case, I did. That's what we have coming up today. Really, really strong conversations. Tomorrow, in hour one, I have a next -level conversation with the great Naomi Wolf. You'll see. That's hour one tomorrow. She's a big deal. She's a gift to this country at this time, I've got to tell you. Later on in the week, we have Doug Giles. He's the hippy -dippy weatherman that kills lions. Always fun. Yes. We've got a lot of guests coming up. This week, we're filming some Socrates in the Studio events. I can't say too much about that, but in December, we're launching a streaming platform, Socrates Plus. So exciting. We're going to be posting some of these things. Heather McDonald, Anthony Bradley, whom I know from the King's College. Interesting that we're finally doing some Socrates in the Studio events. But to get back to where I've been, I was in Omaha. I spoke at Hank Kunneman's church last week. I emailed Pastor Hank and his wife, Brenda. I said, I'm going to be in Omaha for this event with the Speravita Institute. By the way, the Speravita Institute, amazing. Amazing. I keep meeting these heroes. It was incredible. But so I spoke at Pastor Hank's and said, oh, we have a Wednesday night service. Would you preach? So I did. Then we went to Colorado Springs for Jim Dobson, who is a living legend and a great American hero. Doesn't get greater. He puts on a thing at the Broadmoor Hotel every year called The Gathering. The Gathering sounds like a creepy seventies movie, The Gathering, right? Yeah, it does. Yeah. The Gathering. The Gathering. Yeah. Were there robes and hoods and things? Yeah. I thought of a title for a bad horror film called The Blooding. I knew Chris would laugh. The Blooding. The Gathering. Anyway. So you brought your amulets to The Gathering? Yes. Jim Dobson puts us on every year. And I want to say Charlie Kirk spoke, and he's got nothing new. It's a lot of fluff, basically. A lot of fluff. No, he's such a wonderful. It's such a joy to hear Charlie. Ben Carson spoke. Jack Hibbs spoke. I put this on Twitter and on Instagram. But to be around folks like that is so encouraging because they're saying a lot of what I'm saying. And I realized they it was wonderful. I spoke on Saturday night, followed by Gary Bauer. Gary Bauer. We got to get him on the program. Gave a speech. I just thought this was so amazing. It was such an amazing speech because normally I go places. I'm the speaker. I don't get to hear people. And it was absolutely amazing. There was also a video from the new speaker, Mike Johnson. Incredible. We're going to be talking about him with Gavin Wax today. But honestly, it was it was it was such a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful thing. But we've got to get Gary Bauer here in the studio because some of the stuff he spoke about, I just thought it was just beautiful, powerful, powerful stuff. And he's taken on a position with the James Dobson Family Institute. So anyway, OK, that was that was incredible. And then your wife joined you, too, which is always fun. And Suzanne joined me, which is always fun and wonderful that we get to travel together. She may go with me next week to Dallas. I'll be in Dallas. I'll be in Chicago at the end of this week. Next week, I'm in Dallas, the Council for Life. After that, going to Washington, D .C., Intercessors for America. Dutch Sheets will be speaking at that. I'll be speaking at that.

It got a zillion views on Rome. Yeah, ten it got times as many views as we normally. What's great about John is I think he's one of the best impersonators out there for Trump. I think a lot of people just memorize bits. He actually can improvise in the voice like he's done it so long. He knows exactly. That's no that's the genius is that you could say anything.

A highlight from HH5 The Purpose of Life The Heart of Hope w/ Deacon James Keating Ph.D. Discerning Hearts Podcast
"Discerninghearts .com presents The Heart of Hope, Suffering, and the Cross of Christ with Deacon James Keating. Deacon Keating is a professor of spiritual theology and serves as a spiritual director at Kenrick Lenon Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. Deacon Keating has led more than 400 workshops in areas of morality and spirituality and has authored numerous books including The Way of Mystery, Listening for Truth, and Spiritual Fatherhood, The Heart of Hope, Suffering, and the Cross of Christ with Deacon James Keating. I'm your host, Kris McGregor. The name of our series is The Heart of Hope and yet we're talking about suffering. We were created to know, love, and serve the Lord and to be happy with Him forever and the next. What then is the purpose of our life here? Some would say maybe we were born to suffer. Well, suffering is part of it, but it's not the purpose of it. It comes accidentally as a result of, you know, the Christian anthropology, which is there was some gash, some wound at the very beginning, which is a great mystery. We can't, you know, some people to simplistically dismiss Garden of Eden, disobedience of Adam and Eve. They dismiss original sin, but they're being very simplistic about that. There is something broken in the human who strives many times to be good and doesn't reach it or plots and plans to be evil as if it's their right or second nature to them. That's out of kilter. Something's broken in the human. Something is not ordered correctly toward our happiness. So as all the writers our church teach us, mystics, doctrine, we live in a fallen world. So suffering is inevitable, but it's not the purpose. The purpose is intimacy with reality, and the highest form of reality is God opening up his perfectly happy communion, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, opening up that perfect communion of happiness and sharing it with us. That's the purpose of life. The purpose of life is to be taken up into that gift of sharing in Trinitarian happiness, which of course no one deserves, we have no right to, and it is the source of our joy to receive such a gift. Simultaneously, as we are receiving this gift through grace, the sacraments, faith, hope and love, simultaneously as we're receiving this, the body, the affections can undergo great suffering through our own foibles, our own choices to sin, morbidity and decrepitude, aging, we're finite. So, simultaneously with our reaching out to respond to the great purpose of life, sharing in Trinitarian love by the grace of Jesus Christ, we suffer our humanity. But that suffering of our humanity must be placed into this grace, the grace of God sharing his life with us. That's what purifies us, that's what elevates us, and ultimately that's what makes us fit to live in heaven. We take all of our suffering and relate it to this gracious love of God. Purification is a term that we hear the mystics, especially the mystical doctors of the church, describe that which occurs in our understanding of purgatory. And so many of them have said, better to experience that now, experience purgation, the purgatory now, than to experience it after death. There's some sense there of the intensity of the suffering perhaps, and this again is a mystery about how does a spirit suffer after death. But the purity of the spirit, perhaps the intensity of the pure spirit, that will always be related or associated with our bodies, but how we're related immediately after death with the whole configuration of the body disintegrating. How the spirit stays connected to matter, very, very fascinating mystery, but our doctrine says that it does, that the spirit somehow always will be related to matter, to our bodies. This sense that it's better to suffer now, the purification, than afterwards is somehow related to the intensity of the suffering. And we know this sounds perhaps cynical to those who are physically suffering now that the suffering they're undergoing now is not as bad as it would be after. And pastorally, of course, we're sensitive, and we're not trying to degrade anyone's suffering. But ultimately, and theologically, the mystics, the saints, Catherine of Siena, Catherine of Genoa, others have said that it is better for us to undergo it now. One of the reasons it's better for us is that when we die, we will immediately participate in the depths of divine happiness. And so who wouldn't want that? And we know that if we order whatever suffering we're undergoing now to our relationship with Christ, nothing is lost in that suffering. Nothing is lost. There's nothing wasted. People will come in and say to someone in the hospital or some psychic suffering that someone's undergoing, what a waste, what a waste this suffering is. Faith tells us that everything related to Jesus and his love for us is always retained by his Sacred Heart. No suffering is lost. And so everything that we are suffering is actually facilitating a deeper intimacy with him. Eye has not seen. Ear has not heard. Nor has it even dawned on man what God has in store for those who love him. So if you are relating all of your pain to his love for you on the cross, your pain is actually deepening your intimacy with Christ. This is the profound mystery that is reflected for us in the Mass because Jesus' own suffering on the cross is both gathering all of us who suffer to his Sacred Heart and simultaneously deepening the Church's intimacy with the Trinity if we relate it to Christ at the Mass, at Calvary, the Resurrection. So just like we pick up all the crumbs of the Eucharist and we have all those 12 baskets left over so that nothing is wasted, everything will be gathered up by the Spirit and related to the love of God. So it is with our suffering. If we will to order that suffering to Jesus' love for us, he will preserve us. We will not be lost. Nothing will be wasted. And our intimacy with him will be deepened. And paradoxically in our suffering, we will know consolation because of the depths of our intimacy with Jesus. And I think that's the purgatory that we want to undergo here so that when death comes, we awaken only to happiness. When we talk about physical suffering and emotional suffering, there is a difference to the extent that for a woman who would give birth, for example, the pains that you suffer, you remember the labor, you remember the birth, but you do not experience the physical suffering again. That cannot be said necessarily for emotional suffering, that emotional suffering in particular that's rooted in the heart because we go back and we will go back in memory and recall, and the pain is as acute as it was when we first experienced it, and it stays with us. That suffering is so different than the physical suffering that we endure. The emotional suffering, though, that retains such power has probably not been fully related to the love of Christ because Christ will diffuse even the emotional pain so that we can carry it, not as a place of reliving suffering, but as a place of deepening communion with Him. So when you were a little child, your father wounded you emotionally, or when you were a little child, your father hurt you emotionally, and in our memory, of course, we can go back to the very first year of marriage and we can say, yep, he or she did this to me, and it had this effect upon my consciousness, upon my emotions, my feelings. If it's unrelated, if it remains unrelated to salvation, then when we go back there in continual pain, but if we take those wounds and we relate them to the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, if we relate them to the Mass, the purest access point of the Paschal mystery of Jesus. Jesus, when I was first married, my spouse belittled me and abused me emotionally, and I felt so alone, so isolated, for everything I'd hoped for in marriage was in disarray. I give you that wound now, I give you that pain, I want you to carry it because I can't. And when we do this on a regular basis, when we give in prayer our wounds to Jesus, our intimacy with him deepens. His communion dissipates any of the negative affections, anger, hurt, resentment, and he begins to free us to enter those wounds as a school of compassion for others. It's his power now. We don't do this. He invites us into those wounds with him, not alone, and the wounds become birthplace of compassion. Without Jesus and without that relation of these emotional wounds to the Paschal mystery, they just harbor our acute suffering, anger, regret, resentment. They become places not of the birth of compassion, but places unrelated to love, so that instead to numb the pain we drink or we act out in inappropriate ways, or we try to escape into the of superficialities American culture because I just can't take the emotional pain in the memory anymore. Well that's not what Jesus wants. He wants the full and explicit, detailed sharing of that emotional wound with him so he can enter it, heal you, and reorder that wound from a place of desolation to a place where you give birth to compassion for other people. So yes, emotional pain remains deeply embedded unless it is related to Christ himself and his love for us.

Just things that have jumped out to us. And then Peter Schrager is gonna come on and talk about the NFL. Do we have a best team? What are we noticing through seven weeks? What can we expect in week eight that will lead to million dollar picks? And that is today's podcast. Let's bring in our friends from Pearl Jam. Here we go. All right, we're taping this. It's almost 10 o 'clock on Thursday night, Pacific time. Rob Mahoney is here from The Ringer NBA and showing TheRinger .com. We stayed up late because these were two good games. We've had three straight days of very entertaining basketball and we gotta start with the biggest story. Kelly Oubre in the Sixers. What a signing that was, he looks great. No, we just watched LeBron versus the Suns. LeBron's 29 minute limit I think is out the window. He played the whole fourth quarter. And then made the two big head down just going to the basket plays at the end. But biggest thing that's jumped out to you in the last three days is what? Lakers wise or just in general? In general. I think a lot of these teams that we expect to be really good clearly have some assembly required. And the Lakers are one of those teams. I think we saw that from the Bucks and the Sixers tonight too. We're seeing it certainly with the first days of the Victor Webinama experience. Everyone is getting up to speed into their rhythms, trying to understand how all these new pieces fit together. Not revelatory for the opening days of the season to feel that way, but I think even some of the stuff that personally I thought was going to be seamless, like the Giannis, Dame pick and roll, there's some kinks in it that they're going to have to figure out over time. Lakers I thought were the one that surprised me on that one because I thought they were one of the teams that were going to have the advantage coming in. You think about last year's team compared to this year's team. It doesn't seem like Reeves is involved enough either game that, I don't want to say he's an afterthought, but it just felt like he was more in the mix in the playoffs last year. And I liked what Schroeder did for them last year and he was good on Toronto last night and really fit in with what they did. So they're going to have to figure out that Vincent D 'Lo thing. Wood was playing crunch time, which I was really surprised. Did you think we'd be getting this much Christian Wood? I thought that was like a flyer for them. Guarding Kevin Durant on some possessions, wild stuff. But if nothing else, we can trust that when Christian Wood is out there, he will be Christian Wood. In these uncertain times, we can always fall back on that. He certainly had his fair share of like black hole kind of possessions in this game, but he also does play into the Lakers advantages in terms of their length, right? Their size against a team like Phoenix, they're just going to be able to out muscle, get to rebounds, get to balls that they can't get to. So that part of it paid off, I thought in terms of just like having another big out there and certainly the Anthony Davis experiment continues as far as like, do you want more size with him? Do you want to play small with him? There's always that internal question because he seems a little reluctant to do it on a full -time basis, but I'm sure Christian Wood's going to get his shots. I mean, clearly Jackson Hayes is going to get some shots in the rotation to be a meaningful part of the Lakers, the mix there for the Lakers. So I don't know. I think Darvin Ham has a lot of questions to figure out, including the one you listed with Austin Reeves, which is like, who has the ball? Who's initiating for us? Who is involved on a possession to possession basis? Because this game, this was a lot of D 'Angelo Russell, and it was a lot of a better version of D 'Angelo Russell than maybe we saw the other night, but it still feels like a lot. 33 minutes for him tonight. Yeah, Reeves, seven shots, one assist. And I thought all of his usage stuff was going to go up, but it seems like it drifted Russell's way. The other thing I was surprised, I thought Rui was going to be a bigger part of this team. I only played 12 minutes, but I haven't changed my thought on them. They're just such a big, problematic team. And if you're the Suns and you're feeling good after that Warriors game, right? And the Warriors, no Draymond, they were able to overpower them a little on the boards. The two centers had 22. And then tonight you see the flip side of the use of Nurkic experience, where it's like, you're getting zero room protection and you're getting somebody who's just going to be confused anytime somebody is coming off a pick. Basically Lebron at the end of the game just said, I'm going to go attack that guy. Yeah, I'm going to go attack that guy right there. Durant was better tonight, at least for the first three quarters that he looked on Tuesday night. It was really cool just seeing those guys on a basketball court after all these years. As I get older, I'm older than you, but just think like, man, this goes way back now. We're talking mid 2000s was the first time these two guys played basketball against each other and it's still going on. So that was in a cool way kind of lingering over this game. I was enjoying that one. How do you think Durant looks in terms of being a 35 year old guy who they gave up three first rounders and two swaps and Mikhail Bridges and Cam Johnson for? It feels like a slightly loaded question. Yeah. He's looked good. And certainly as you said, the first three quarters of this game looked more than good enough. I think the problem was just like this version of the Suns like felt very James Harden is hurt and Kyrie Irving won't get the shot. Nets, you know, just like Kevin Durant and a bunch of like - I blocked that net out of my mind. I think a lot of us have tried to, but you know, him with a lot of like serviceable workaday role players can get you so far. But as you saw on this one, against a really good defensive team like the Lakers in the fourth quarter, they can just shut the water off. And this is where, you know, I'm nervous about the Suns for a variety of reasons. I think if it was just the defense or just the depth or just the injury risk of their core guys, I would feel better. But it's all of the above all the time. And that's going to put Durant in some games like this one. It's going to put Yusef Nurkic in positions like this one where all of a sudden he's triggering your offense because you don't really have a default point guard out there. And sometimes the value of having a point guard in your rotation, I don't think it's really going to matter when Beal and Booker and Durant are playing together. Those guys can all handle and play make and do everything they need to do. But in a game like this, where two of those guys are out, sometimes it helps to just be able to run some offense that doesn't have to involve Kevin Durant pounding the rock through pick and roll. Yeah, 28 shots for him today. 13 including, and then 13 free throws. He played 39 minutes and was also playing the five in stretches. And this is game two. They had to basically try to unlock 2007 Texas Longhorns Durant. That's the last guy I want to be throwing miles on, maybe in the entire league other than LeBron. Cause he's, you know. That's going to be true for Booker and Beal too, right? Like when any of these guys are out, those three, whoever's left is going to have to play huge minutes or else you get into Grayson Allen and Drew Eubanks are playing like a massive role in your rotation. And I like those guys. I like Drew Eubanks. Maybe not like tamper and lose a second round pick like Drew Eubanks, like some teams do, but. I'd lose 50K for him. Maybe not a second round pick. It's a little steep. Yeah. The other game, Milwaukee Philly. So no Harden. I wish there was a way to just mute the entire Harden story of all coverage for it. Anything online, anything on Twitter, all conversations. I just don't want to hear it anymore. And I don't think he has any interest in playing. And I just think, just tell us when he gets traded. Their best chance now, now that the, especially the Clippers last night looked great.
A highlight from 48 - Week 7 Recap
"Welcome to the UltraFlex football podcast where we have fun with our friends while we talk about football, getting straight to it today. Got lots to talk about. I'm your host Anthony Sutton. With me is Rob Green. Good morning, evening, afternoon, whatever it is for you. And Ryan Wheeler. Howdy everybody. So this week we have our album. First I gotta ask you guys a question though. Alright. I want you to say the first thing that comes to your mind. Alright. What's the opposite of a waffle? A pancake. Gosh damn it. Alright. I guess I lose that one then. I had an argument with my wife. What was the right answer? I don't know. She said the opposite of a waffle is a pancake and I was like that's not the opposite of a waffle. There's no opposite to waffle. Like an anti -waffle would be the opposite of a waffle. But a pancake isn't the opposite. I said what about French toast? And she said no it'd be a pancake. But you guys both said pancake so I'm wrong. French toast? It was second though. It was like pancake and I was like ooh French toast. Oh. Okay. I mean I think of like if I go to IHOP and they're like hey we're out of waffles. I'm like okay I'll take a pancake. Now here's another thing. I'll take French toast. So we have a pancake mix that we use and there's also a waffle recipe on the back of it. So you can make either with the pancake mix. So to me it kind of is the opposite if you think of it that way. That's one or the other. See that's backward logic. That's backwards logic to me. That means that you can make the same thing out of that stuff. Yeah but it's not the same because you have to add, no because you add oil and eggs to make the waffle. Pancake is just the pancake mix. I know. I know but it's alright I digress. I'm wrong apparently but I hope that somebody out there either said French toast or they say there's no way that's the opposite so I'm not alone here. Anyway we have Carrie Underwood's album this week titled Some Hearts. I believe it was 2005. I didn't check honestly. Yeah. My bod on that. My bod. I'm bad on that. Your bod. There's that accent coming out. My bod. So my songs are Wasted, Don't Forget to Remember Me, Some Hearts, Jesus Take the Wheel, and The Night Before. Rob what do you got? Lessons learned before he cheats starts with goodbye. I just can't live a lie. We're young and beautiful. I've got That's Where It Is, Whenever You Remember, I Ain't in Shakota Anymore, and Inside Your Heaven. So we'll work those in and yeah let's get to it. Unfortunately we do have to talk about football. It's a rough week for Bills but let's get to football talk. Real quick I'll get Ryan's take on this is Wednesday evening I guess and the Titans announced that they're gonna start Levis next week or I guess this week. Initial thoughts? I'm excited.
A highlight from Oops! The BlackRock ETF Code IBTC Has Been Around Since August...
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Wednesday, October 25th, and today we are talking about more weird quirks of this proto bull market. But before we get into that, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Hello friends. Well, today we are following up on the story that we've been tracking all week, which is all of the intrigue and interest around a potential ETF being approved, which had a really funny and weird little wrinkle yesterday. But before we get into that, as I was prepping the show, news broke that Sam Bankman -Fried would indeed be taking the stand in his own defense. Now, my feeling on this was that of course he would. I have had nearly 100 % conviction that this was going to happen, and it has only grown over the course of the trial. This is despite this being a very bad idea in general. It usually does not go well for the accused to speak in their own defense. However, one, Sam is not a person who can really resist talking. And two, after what we've seen on this trial, it's sort of the only thing he has left. Martin Shkreli summed this up last week. The former pharma exec who himself went to jail has been taking a close interest in the trial and he wrote, The only chance SPF has to get acquitted is to take the stand. Eleven out of ten criminal defense attorneys would tell you it's a mistake, but while it's a Hail Mary, it's the only shot he has. Taking the stand is an ambitious move by a defense. OJ famously did not take the stand. Neither did Michael Jackson or Casey Anthony. Lawyers don't like the uncertainty that comes with testimony, but specifically cross -examination. Another reason lawyers don't like it is that there is a high risk the defendant is less likable after testifying. That is a risk with Sam, but he's not your average defendant. This will be the last sale he has to make. Recency bias matters. If SPF can avoid choking and charm 12 people like he charmed VCs, they might just forget the first five weeks of the trial. Riding that momentum into closing arguments is critical. On the stand, SPF has a simple story. Why would I want people to lose money? I didn't put any of this money in my pocket. I invested it. I was stupid, but that's not a crime. He can act surprised, even hurt, at the idea he wanted to deprive anyone of their property. Virtually everything comes down to his state of mind and what he believed, which is really up to him and how well he can sell it. That's my take. If he doesn't take the stand, he will regret it forever. SPF isn't the kind of guy who leaves things like that on the table. He will get closure, a real chance to tell a story, and a fighting chance at winning over this jury who probably are ready to convict. For my money, that is the best legal analysis you will read about this particular decision. Sam could testify starting as soon as tomorrow afternoon. Obviously, we will keep you abreast of any of those developments. But today, let's go back to this crazy Bitcoin spike that we're in the middle of and talk about a few interesting quirks. Of course, one of the biggest catalysts for Monday's Bitcoin spike was BlackRock being assigned a ticker symbol for its Bitcoin ETF on the DTCC website. The DTCC functions as the clearinghouse for most U .S. stock trading. So BlackRock's ETF being listed there was taken as a sign of progress towards an eventual SEC approval. That said, most analysts had warned that markets were getting ahead of themselves and that the inclusion of BlackRock's ETF in the DTCC system wasn't much of an indication of anything. The only real information to be gleaned was that BlackRock were taking steps in preparation for a launch, not that an ETF launch was imminent. However, on Tuesday morning, Barron's crypto journalist Joe Light noticed that the BlackRock ETF had been removed from the DTCC's website during the day's update. Markets erupted into pandemonium. Bitcoin immediately sold off by 3%. Traders furiously refreshed the DTCC website, causing it to crash after likely experiencing more single -day traffic than it ever had before. Bloomberg's senior ETF analyst Eric Balcones said, DTCC is definitely not used to this kind of attention or action. It lives behind the scenes, very boring. Speaks to the uniqueness and intensity of this entire saga. Now at around 6 p .m. that evening, the DTCC website was once again updated. BlackRock's ETF was back under the ticker symbol IBTC. The only substantive change was that the redemption in creation status had been changed from yes to no. Analysts said this was likely of no real consequence as the fund is not yet trading. Said Bloomberg's other ETF analyst James Safart, I personally don't think this means all that much if I'm being honest. Think it indicates BlackRock is getting everything ready to launch if and when they get an SEC approval. And that the no just means it's not open for create redeem because it's not live yet. Now later in the evening, a Reuters reporter took the drastic step of actually asking the DTCC what was going on. A spokesperson for the DTCC explained that quote, It is standard practice for DTCC to add securities to the NSCC security eligibility file in preparation for the launch of a new ETF to market. Appearing on the list is not indicative of any outcome for any outstanding regulatory or other approval processes. What's more, they noted that the symbol had actually been there since August, which of course caused a fair bit of bewilderment. Travis Cling tweeted, Just to make sure I'm tracking. Market thought BlackRock's IBTC was listed on the DTCC website yesterday. Price spiked and blew up a bunch of derivatives. IBTC listing magically disappears today then reappears a few hours later. Then it turns out that IBTC had been on DTCC since August. Did I get that right? Bill King responded, Just another day in paradise. Now as another indicator of rapidly growing institutional interest in Bitcoin, open interest on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange or CME soared to record highs on Tuesday. The CME hosts a handful of crypto futures contracts and is the main trading venue for TradFi firms which shy away from offshore crypto exchanges. Open interest on crypto native venues was crushed by Monday's volatile move. These offshore exchanges saw perpetual futures open interest decrease by almost 27 ,000 Bitcoin throughout Monday. Conversely, CME's monthly Bitcoin futures contracts saw an increase in OI of over 4 ,000 Bitcoin. For the first time, CME OI passed 100 ,000 Bitcoin worth around 3 .4 billion. According to Vetle Lunde, a senior research analyst at K33 Research, the CME market share for Bitcoin futures trading has reached an all -time high of 25%. The CME is now the second largest trading venue for Bitcoin futures, trailing only Binance which still holds 29 % market share. Unsurprisingly, however, Bitcoin's market share has been collapsing in the second half of this year following regulatory lawsuits and difficulties with payment infrastructure. Binance's futures trading market share topped out at around 37 % in June. 24 -hour trading volume for CME Bitcoin futures hit 1 .8 billion between Monday evening and Tuesday morning. That's around 25 % larger volume than any other 24 -hour trading period over the past two months. Now, alongside the obvious benefits of having significant Bitcoin futures volume moved to regulated and surveilled markets, monthly expiry structure on the CME gives us additional information on how markets are being traded. That's opposed to offshore where 80 % of futures trading is using perpetual futures which don't expire. Currently, the one -month premium to spot Bitcoin prices is at 13 % for CME futures contracts. There hasn't been a discount to spot prices since late August and the premium has been steadily climbing since then. Today's episode is brought to you by Kraken. For far too long, the whole financial system has been standing still, too slow, only on for certain hours, overly designed for some types of people but not for others. Crypto, at its best, represents progress. It asks the question, what if? It invites people in instead of leaving them out. It's on 24 -7, 365, and moves at the speed of real life. Not everyone believes it, we've got our fair share of detractors, but that's the way it always is when you're building something new. Kraken is a crypto company that has been through the highs and lows of the industry, facing forwards towards progress throughout. And now they're inviting us to see what crypto can be.

A highlight from Ethereum Rally Next? | Crypto Market Update
"Let's take a look at Ethereum today and dive in a little deeper. There's a lot of things that could be happening on the macro side, but also within the markets. We'll also dive into the Bitcoin ETF. Take a look at what that, because obviously we are seeing some market movement right now across all of crypto. We'll break it all down for you. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back into Tech Path. I want to thank our sponsor today, and that is Tangem. Jump over to their website. It's very simple. This is a self -custody wallet that you guys can use. It's very simple to get one. Jump over there, click that, get Tangem. It's going to take you right over to the variations that you can go into. This is a card, works with a great app, and it enables you guys to do a ton of things in terms of self -custody, which is one of the things you should be doing. If you're not doing self -custody today, that's the first thing you should be looking into. So go out, do some study work, and learn about self -custody. This is one of the things. If you're brand new to crypto, also do that. This is also a great deal. Use our code so it's going to get you an additional discount over there. So make sure and try that out. All right. A couple of things I want to get into. A couple of tweets here. This is coming in from Watchaguru. Just in, of course, BlackRock iShares spot Bitcoin ETF relisted on the DTCC. Basically, this is the Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation, which starts the process of getting an ETF ready for market consumption. It went on. It went off. A lot of people speculating to what this and why. And of course, the big part of this is the movement we've seen in the market in a very short period of time. Now Ethereum has not necessarily had the same kind of movement. So we're going to show you guys a few things to break out a little bit of an analysis on Ethereum and why there could be a pent -up demand for a potential ETF as well. So go into all that. Let me jump over to another tweet right here. This is coming from Eleanor Teret, also talking about the Bitcoin spot ETF. And the statement here is, we're excited for these products to come to market, but this level of hysteria is something we've never seen before. And this is traditional finance execs talking about what's happening in the ETF space. Bitcoin flying. We've seen another kind of local high here. Continues to hold even after we saw the listing pull off the DTCC. So the question is, does Bitcoin even care? I mean, are we in that phase right now where Bitcoin is going to get this pump? And do we look at a retracement? I'd love to get you guys' thoughts on that. Will Bitcoin retrace off of these highs? Or do we see Bitcoin maybe make its way up to 40, 42K? That's where some analysts are kind of pushing to. This headline right here, of course, DTCC listing of the planned BlackRock Bitcoin ETF is not indicative of an approval. And all of this is speculation, remember, and I'll zoom in on that for you guys. But one thing that they did say here is it's a standard of practice. Now what that simply means, BlackRock's prepping for this product to be ready. I think, and this is something we've talked about on the show many times, is I think the leader of who goes out first with the best marketing is going to get a chance at really getting some pent up demand for this product. Remember that we've got ARK Involved, Fidelity, many others that are in the race for top ETF for Bitcoin. And if all of this, of course, plays into BlackRock as one of the leaders, it'll be interesting. Appearing on the list is simply an indication that an agent bank has requested a DTCC identifier, meaning this is the way that you can go out and get these funds. And obviously it needs the future following SEC approval to make all this happen. And then, of course, a proposed fund inclusion on the list is not indicative of an outcome for an outstanding regulatory or other approval process for an ETF fund, just as a disclaimer. I want to go over to a clip real quick to kind of get in on an understanding of not only what Bitcoin is facing, but maybe how the markets will be playing this out. Listen, this is Anthony Pompliano. Right now, we do have high interest rates and they're trying not to print money. We have a thirty three and a half trillion dollar debt. They're trying to fund two proxy wars. We have the southern border issue. We've got all sorts of inflation. They're still trying to combat. And so what's likely to happen here is that they're going to have to return to loose monetary policy. When they do that, it is likely to coincide with the Bitcoin. But near term, just talking about the ETF, you've got nothing has happened in the last three weeks to indicate it's any closer. Well, I definitely think that it's closer, right? I mean, because three weeks went by. Hey, well, three weeks went by, but also BlackRock is now going and they're ceding the fund. They're ceding the fund in October, which is new. Correct. And so they just amended the application. And so really what you're just seeing is they're getting prepared for the approval. The big question is, are they going to just do they know anything? They may know nothing either. They may know nothing, but I don't think that BlackRock is going to go through all this effort. Right. Remember, there's reputation risk here in terms of people know what they're doing. And so it's much more likely that it's going to get approved. All right. So some of the same things, but more than likely get approved. All this is still very speculative with the SEC. But at the same time, there is a little bit of news here that I'll reveal here in the show that maybe there is more of a point from the SEC actually flowing in this direction. So we'll see if this actually does become a major impetus on the market. And how much more does Bitcoin move? That's the real question. This was a tweet by Jason Williams. And he makes a good point here is that, you know, you've got BlackRock, Fidelity, Invesco, others. They're going to have about a couple of year pent up demand potentially. Remember, we still have the halving. We've got a potential wind down of what we're dealing with on a macro level. All of this plays into the demand on a risk asset like Bitcoin. If that does happen, how are they going to find that much, you know, physical Bitcoin to be able to put in these funds? Because this is a one to one fund. What does that mean? That means that we're going to see Bitcoin most likely go up. Now, I've been in and out of Bitcoin for about the last year, recently sold all my Bitcoin looking for an opportunity to buy these pumps. So that's something that I have been doing. Of course, many people say, well, where do you take those? Well, I've done it into Ethereum. I've done it Solana, which have had larger moves in these periods of time. So remember, some of these tokens, again, looking at where all of this is going to go, all of this is really playing this, you know, one move at a time. Whether we see a pump from an ETF or we see Ethereum or Solana or other assets out there start to make these kind of moves based on what the market penetration of Bitcoin, in many cases, is the indicator that takes us kind of to the next level.
BTP-LOT4 Challenges in Suffering, Part 1 The Life of St. Teresa of Avila Beginning to Pray with Dr. Anthony Lilles Podcast - burst 3
"Because she kind of looks back and she she looks back with regret about how little small some of her response was, how she failed to persevere with it. And she's doing this because she's kind of saying, Today, let's not make that mistake anymore. Today, I don't want to have let fear limit me and my lack of trust limit me like I once did before. Today, I want to do something beautiful for God and I'm going to trust Him and I'm going to give myself over to it because He is so good. The idea in her reflections as you read it isn't that she's so bad, although she's aware of it. She's aware of the wickedness that lives in our hearts that His grace is overcoming. That's though not her emphasis. If you read this carefully, her emphasis is, Oh, Supreme Good.
A highlight from BTP-LOT4 Challenges in Suffering, Part 1 The Life of St. Teresa of Avila Beginning to Pray with Dr. Anthony Lilles Podcast
"Anthony, thank you so much for joining me once again. Well, it's wonderful to be with you to discuss the life of Teresa of Avila, Teresa de Jesus. Today we get to talk about chapter 4, when she enters the monastery of the Incarnation. I love the fact that she encourages her brother to kind of travel with her, that he should join to and turn away from the vanities of the world. I think that speaks of the dynamic nature of her personality. Yeah, he, in fact, you know, kind of inspired by her sister, he will eventually become a Dominican. But the journey that she sets out on, it makes it sound like it's much farther than it actually was. Remember, this is the same brother. The two of them, when they were children, tried to go to the land of the Muslims to be martyred. And that was when they were little, and their uncle found them on the hillside and got them back home. And so this time they set out again, the uncle doesn't get to them until she actually reaches the convent of the Incarnation, which is really not very far away from where her uncle found her all those years ago when she was a child. And she enters into the Incarnation, the monastery of the Incarnation, a Carmelite monastery, and she discovers she loves religious life. And this opens up a really powerful reflection on when we go to serve the Lord, and all the fear that comes, and all the hesitations, and what God can do when we face our fears. That is a real challenge, isn't it? Because our fears are a way of trying to protect ourselves. Maybe we've been hurt, or we're trying to protect others, somehow we put up walls. Fear is quite an enemy, isn't it? It is, and there's so many forms of it. She doesn't explore exactly all of what she's afraid of, but to go from a life where it's basically self -centered to becoming a member of the community where you're going to be serving others, to go from a life where there's a lot of excitement, to go into a community where in many ways you'll be hidden and kind of cut off from the former way of life that you were living before. These possibly were part of things. The other part of it that I think that we can't underestimate that maybe applies to our lives is to go from a life where you're kind of in control of, you know, you have command over what you're doing, into a life where you're going to give yourself over to the service of the Lord. What happens if you fail? And I think that was a little bit of her fear, was fear of failure. I can relate to that. I'm sure many people out there who are listening to us can too. But then in this second section of chapter four, this jumps out and I try to hold on to this, Anthony. She says, And the greater the fear it starts out with, the greater and more enjoyable will be the reward afterward. I hold this opinion through experience, as I said, with many very difficult things. And so I would never counsel anyone if there were someone to whom I should have to give counsel to fail out of fear to put a good inspiration into practice when it repeatedly arises. That's it. That if you have something that keeps on coming up in your heart that you ought to do, if you can overcome your fear, the virtue that overcomes fear is courage. If you can master your fear with courage and do it, there's blessings for her. That's the basic message here. Chris, is this something that you found in your own life? Well, I think so. I think so. It takes time to turn around and look back and say, Oh, I'm so glad that happened. Because these type of experiences generally take time, don't they, to kind of play out. And sometimes it doesn't even look at what you may have expected it to look like or experience. And you have been a part of our mission at Discerning Hearts, right? We're supposed to discern. We're supposed to test spirits. We're supposed to give time. And yet what Teresa is saying here in some ways says in that discernment, don't let fear be one of the things that keeps you from moving forward. That's right. In fact, I'm glad you brought up Discerning Hearts because so many of your listeners probably don't realize the amount of courage that it has taken you and your family to provide this apostolate to all of us. When you first set out to do this, this was an unusual thing to do. And you had no idea of all the different challenges and twists and turns that you would face along the way. And yet there was repeatedly this impulse in your heart to do this. And not only to do this, but to do it in a way that makes it available for everyone. You don't have paid subscribers. You just put this out there for everyone to benefit. That kind of boldness and generosity of your time and energy and resources, just going out there and trusting that God will provide what is needed when it is needed. I don't know, Kris, I think you chose the pathway of Mother Angelica. And anyone who chooses that pathway, God blesses them tremendously. Isn't that something that you've experienced? I have. Thank you for saying that, by the way, Anthony. And I couldn't do it without your encouragement and support over the years, particularly spiritually and in great friendship. What I have found, it's a scary type of thing to do something that God is asking you to do. And you have a lot of people around you telling you, well, you should do it this way and you should do it that way. But you know inside your heart, but the Lord wants me to do it this way, especially when it comes to matters in the spiritual life. You can't give what you don't have. And it's difficult to guide people if you don't respond to his promptings. And the reward, as you were saying, you are blessed, but in ways that are better than what you think. You know, sometimes people think, well, if you have tons and tons of subscribers, or you have tons and tons of monetary resources, that's an accomplishment. You're on your way. No, it's the blessings that come from wonderful friendships of people that you know that have been touched by the work of grace that God's working in their life. There are some things that you can't explain why it's so good. And I don't mean to make this about me, but it's an example of the influence of Teresa of Avila. She is one of those saints at the very, very beginning who has journeyed with all of us here at Discerning Hearts and has witnessed in her example, even in this very first time when she's in the Carmel, that you don't be afraid and know how to listen to that voice of God who is trying to lead you because the fruitfulness is. I mean, you can see that example in what she has given the world. Through her own, we can call it ministry, can't we? That's right. The witness of her life becomes kind of a ministry to the Church, a witness of holiness. And this is where for Discerning Hearts to be able to support souls who are also trying to do something beautiful for God, they feel this impulse over and over. I think it was very necessary for you and everyone involved at Discerning Hearts to face the same fears that people who would be listening to even this show today have also faced and are facing. I think there's a whole bunch of young men and women today who God is calling to do something very beautiful with their lives. I think God has called them for greatness. John Paul II said, The world never expects anything from you, but God, He expects greatness because you were made for greatness. And we need to own that and step up into it, which means facing the fears that the world throws out at us. And part of those fears are if you go and do something beautiful for God, what if you fail? What happens? How do you pick up the pieces? And that kind of voice is a voice that's trying to predict the future, and it's not the Holy Spirit. What the Holy Spirit prompts us to do is to be faithful with the inspirations that we've received. And so you received an inspiration to go and do something beautiful for God. In the case of Discerning Hearts, Chris's faithfulness to this, Bruce's faithfulness to this apostolate, her family's faithfulness, really, to this apostolate, has opened up avenues of grace, a source of grace, for people all over the world that I literally, when I travel internationally, run into people, actually run into people all over the world who know about Discerning Hearts and have been edified because Chris had the courage to offer something like she has. And Chris, what you've stepped into is actually a spiritual law. Teresa gives voice to the spiritual law. The greater the fear that you need to overcome when you are being, when the Lord kind of prompts you to do something, and you're afraid to do it, the greater the fear, the greater the reward's going to be, not only for yourself, but for everyone else in the whole world, in the whole mystical body of Christ. So this is a very powerful thing. We need to kind of, in our prayer, be aware of what the Lord's prompting us to do, how He's prompting us to do it. And when we are aware of that prompting, there is going to be an onslaught of fears that just come and try to discourage us and try to make us second -guess ourselves, trying to encourage us away from greatness and into something more modest that we think we can handle. There's going to be all of those fears. And what we need to do as men and women today, no matter our state in life, but especially those of you who are deciding your state in life, you need to not let those fears limit what God has invited you into. Don't let them limit your response, your generous response to God. The more you confront that fear and the more courage you take into your following up the Lord, the greater the blessing is that He wants to give you. And if you live by that always greater, Saint Ignatius would also talk about that, live by this always greater, God is going to bless you with something ever greater. He has never outdone in His generosity.

I'm glad they said that they were gonna give it to charity. That's nice of course so that's about it. That's freaky bernard. Thank you and thank you for calling and telling us that. That's that's a real coincidence. That's really wacky. So anthony that cooper's from new york and from new york. I was able to talk new york with them right. It was great. I loved any talk numbers. It's a numbers. Yeah yeah forget about So anthony to understand now. Have you learn more famous ones before we have like a minute. Any more famous ones. Yeah I don't know there's a couple of mon here This is this. One is one of my favorites. A falling baby was saved twice by the same man. Oh where'd you in detroit from the sky in detroit in the nineteen thirties. Young a young mother obviously very careless. I know there's there. There was a guy named joseph fig lock and he was walking down the street. The mother's baby fell out the window onto this guy fig lock and the fall. The baby's fall was broken because he fell onto the guy so both the men and the baby were unharmed. So you know stroke of luck but a year later the very very same window kid was playing again and joseph fig lock walking by the same window again. The baby falls out the window a year later on to the same guy no. I'm not a trampoline down. They're not joseph. Free arrow whatever's names mysteries of the unexplained. This is from some of these really weird coincidences. That's one of them. what's another one another. Give you something a little more recent Let's see. I wasn't prepared. I thought it was out the code and he ran into somebody from hawaii. It's amazing so confused. Well here's one. Twin brothers were killed on the same road. Two hours apart in two thousand and two seventy year old twin brothers died within hours of one. Another on separate.

We got to take them a family vacation together even mean to yeah. It was great. Great now that you get anthony. You're starting to catch on here. He doesn't sound convince convinced about running in the people. It's not always about that though. That's not the only other rutgers and chad walks in. That's not a quincy really predictable. If you were on vacation in seattle. And i walked into the one there. That would be a coincidence. Yeah still again. Be highly likely to now. Eric is going to further confuse. He's going to tell you about the coincidence about running into somebody so but there's other coincidences out. There and we'll get to them in a minute. Hi eric how are you. i'm good. how are you good now. What what coincidence that you have. Well i have kind of two going on right now. One i was driving home and i Stopped it in the sikh button. So i can have a cigarette and i came across. You guys talking about south dakota so i started listening and then i heard all the calls about everything and told me to tell you coincidence. That was one too. I myself from south dakota moved to greenville. South carolina and my neighbors are actually from the same hometown. I'm from we and you had no idea when you moved in. You didn't know them either. No they were there. Nope i had no clue there and chad on our show is from south dakota. That's kinda cool to do. You know him because tesco's small. There's no bigger than you think what. What's the town you're from in south dakota. I'm from the sioux falls area and chad wish from i forgot to cows with cows. Cow's did you cows eric. Yup they probably live right next. That's my guess. Well eric. welcome welcome to the neighborhood. Thank you see now that anthony get now. See the coincidences. Not even so much that he. It's the fact that the south dakota thing i've heard from extension called winner which describes me winner winner. Because i'm a winner. Wait a minute. There's really a town called winner and from there. That's a coincidence. Because you're not a winner. Now you are. you're a winner. I think john has a has a different sort of coincidence anthony you you might understand this john this this may confuse him so talk slow anyway. You saw somebody. You knew a north dakota. Actually it was in jamaica. No yeah so what coincidence me and my wife were mak- last year and we were laying on the beach and i was reading anthony board danes.

"Yeah. So I'd rather bite the bullet and sleep on the couch. So I think where you live too, it matters. Yeah, it's true. I mean, in that scenario, if you would have stayed in hotel and not here, I would have been pissed at you. I would have been really pissed. That's almost insulting. It's like you'd rather spend $500 a night rather than stay here one night with me. You can have that whole room to yourself. I'll hide in the bedroom. I don't care. I will make it comfortable for you. Yeah, but you're like my aunt. You're not staying at a hotel you're staying here. That's true. And it would have been much easier to stay at a hotel because the parking. That's right. Part of the city is just a complete nightmare. I had to wake up, I think it was a 5 a.m. to go down and move my car from one side. To the other. Yeah, we have alternate side street parking here. This is the craziest thing ever. It's really weird. Like, I found a spot that's awesome. What? I have to move the car before 6 a.m.. What? My favorite thing is I'm in my building. Every time somebody does construction like a lot of construction, they'll be like, oh, we're gonna have to shut down the water and you won't have hot water for 24 hours. And, you know, if you want, you should go stay at a hotel. Oh yeah, are you paying for my hotel? I own an apartment. I live in an apartment that I already own. But you're gonna pay for me to stay in a hotel to get the hot water? I'm like, no, thank you. I'll just go to my gym. Yeah, it's a $100 a night just in taxes. That's the taxes. That doesn't even include the one time I did stay at a hotel in the city. You could lay in bed and pee in the toilet at the same time. This big. Yep. It's like how about really? You took a real, you took a real room and divided it in the four. Cities just crazy. It's insane. Let's say it is a woman for a minute. There have been a few. They usually work after dark. It's the Cooper and Anthony show. There's a fight going on between the boomers and the millennials. Again? People are tweeting things boomers say and millennials say and they just think it's hilarious. Yeah, I'm sick of the boomers coming after us. Go ahead. What do they have to say now? When boomers say, I'm going to video this. I'm videoing this. And they're like, you're black. Right. You're videoing it. I don't know what that is. Let me get my VCR out. It's like in watch your video, boomers love saying, just nuke it. It's something needs to be warmed up in the microwave. Oh, that's true. It's so funny I've heard I've heard my mom say that to be honest, yes. Just go ahead and nuke it. What? Boomers love to say, you look good when they run into somebody they haven't seen in a long time. You look great. Even though they probably don't. But everyone says that to each other. It's a New York thing. I can't stand that. When you go, I love your haircut. You look great. No, it looks like shit. And they gain 500 pounds since you saw him last time. They don't look good. Boomers love saying they returned from Facebook jail. I just returned from Facebook jail. They put me in jail. And millennials are like. What? I need to talk about. Millennials love to say, I so did a thing when they went and bought a desk. So you did a thing. Oh, I just did a thing. One of my favorite things I'll be like, oh my God, I should have seen me today adulting all over the place. Boomers love saying phone tag. Oh, I hate that. Oh, tag you're it. Like if your grandma calls you and goes to grandma, take your it. Yeah. Millennials love saying an Aldi but a goodie when they send you a YouTube link from 2008. Boomers love saying, all right, let's do this thing before checking out the grocery store. Oh my God. All right, let's do this thing. That's terrible. Millennials love saying cuteness overload. Well, yeah. That's actually one of my favorite. There's a cuteness overload Instagram page that I follow and it is cuteness overload. It's a lot of puppies and kittens. Speaking of puppies and kittens, millennials love saying doggo or popper. Way to go. Yeah, doggo doggos doing things. That's a lot of my hashtags that I use pupper. Bork. Yeah. Boomers love saying, that's the $1 million question right there. Millennial culture is not knowing what your own ring tone sounds like because your phone's been on a silent vibrate since 2009. Boomers love saying the COVID. It's the COVID. She got the COVID. Oh no, wait, here's my favorite boomer thing. I don't know if you're parents or grandparents do this, but they'll be like, okay, I'll let you go. But one more thing. And then they talk for 20 more minutes. Millennials love saying I was today years old when I learned this. Come on, you make fun of me. I say that all the time. Boomers love saint pot instead of weed. We're going to smoke some pot. Oh, okay. Boomers love saying, let's see if this works when handing over a credit card. Again, that feels like a dad joke more than a boomer joke, but yeah, I'll go with that, yes. Yeah. When they hand it, let's see if this one works. You know, you know, it's part of boomer culture also. I hate, I hate whenever I go out with a boomer. Like if we have a boss or somebody, and they always have to like, the server will come over to restaurant and be like, what's your name? And they have to get the server's name. And then they use it the whole night. Hey, hey, Tom. Tom, I'm so glad you finally have plastic straws. Like, you know, fuck the environment. I hate that. You don't need to know their name. Just give them the order. They're not freaks of people, just like you and me. You're right. You guys suck. The last year gotta go flamingo was the big toy to get like a little toddler. You know, especially somebody who is potty training, I guess. Or a teenager who's just gross. The other. All right, here's gotta go flamingo. He talks. I'm so hungry he pose. So wait, you feed it. You feed it, and then it sits on a little toilet. You give it food. And then they poop. They put them on the toilet and they poop. Then pour? Then he can pool again. They just keep poops. Out now for most. That was last year's big toy. Well, it did so well. They now got to go flamingo now has a friend, the guy to go turtle, which is even funnier because if you think about the turtle. Neil gotta go turtle. Okay, so okay, so it's turtle T you are D like turned. Probes. Yeah, they spell it turd turtle. It's the flamingo just with a different head. Exactly. The flamingo with a different body. It's the same. It's the same head. But here's the thing, gotta go turtle.

"To bumble well okay. So that's the problem so this study is saying that if you met somebody on bumble got married and got divorced after three years. It's probably not a good idea to go back on a dating app it. You're better off meeting somebody through friends through a party at work in person the idea. But it's it's this twofold here. They're saying that two things are going on one is if you met through an app it takes longer to actually get to know the person but also the kind of person who dates through an app has less what they call social capital and if you have social capital you're also more likely to get divorced so the type of people who meet and married to apps are the type of people who will probably get divorced within three years which means meeting through an the kind of person you're gonna meet. A nap is not the kind of person that you're going to be with the rest of your life necessarily so. Don't delete the app and you've said for years and years and years you're always going to date the same person. Yeah i sent a reason to get married. No i mean when you get into that rut you go. Why do i keep dating. The same guys is because that's the guy that you're looking for so people are just stupid animals and we'd just go right back to bumble go right back and i'll look. I met another girl. And she's a painting ass to we last two years gotta go right back on bumble all over again and is probably the same damn people. I guarantee the same people that you are looking through before one. Oh well no three years of pass plea geared. Tv go back for year and then came right back. What is is it. The other people who went and got married and came back three years later also. So you're all. I remember you like pam like a reunion yes. Just don't delete. It's it's like when you get off. Facebook there's a button you can say. Yes the lead or just kind of take it down for a while right so you can just take it down for a while. Don't delete it. Tell her that you deleted it but really de como puffer anthony show so i'm going to need to hear it come now. No anthony might those chad bauer man. The coordinator had good evening. You're looking lovely this evening. Loris eight seven seven six cooper what. I don't kiss my. But i know when you when you're being chatting and stuff. I know when you're all chad like trying to spread some sunshine. You spread sunshine joy happiness. You had a stroke sprint sunshine. What happened. That's that's the way that's the way i roll chad. Not the time a month to spread all they'll be no sunshine today. Ebony knows. I'll show you sunshine right next next week. Can spread sunshine spread sunshine tonight. You just just keep fed with chocolate. Yes bring charge alexa chocolate miss lawrence. Yes immediately the peace needs chocolate chocolate. Now well your wife. And i what can i tell you right now. We got something in common. Fill bad for me. Lucky you circle the date on your calendar. Everybody does by the way the big boss called. And i had. This is so funny. Because he was in he was in puerto rico and i texted him something in spanish and he doesn't know span there so we asked somebody what i had said and the way he phrased. It wasn't what i wrote and what he said to. The person wasn't exactly what i was trying to say when he said what is you know this. This means the person said. That's not very nice so he just let it go and i never heard back from him so i said you know how come you never responded to that. And he said boy. You're obviously very angry about something. But then i looked at the calendar. And i realize what day it works. You said you have. That date circled on your calendar. Was like you know. I do a circled in red. He he has a daughter and a wife and he knows when his daughter his wife and his his radio the same time yet he s i remember specifically. What do you mean. I have both of them. That's why that's what i'm saying you've got to remember. Also you've got me on the wife he doesn't. It's easy because you in his way from the same deal but but you and his wife and daughter the the big boss aren't so he specifically writes down what's what's worse having them together or separate. I think having together is better because you get it all out of the way women yelling fan. Yeah women yelling for a couple of days and then the rest of the month. You're good twenty. Days are cool whereas the re if you're if it's all different times and you've too many women your life but that are close to to deal with this yeah. I think that's worse because we're all in different schedules in every week. He's got something else to endure. I disagree. I think the dealing with it at the same time. Don't you dare disagree with me. I know i know what's right. Use listen to me. I'm telling you it's better to have it all at the same time. Now shut up and get me chocolate. I don't understand this. Because i would never know if it weren't for the you know my wife be behaves the same all the time there. She's not cranky around that time of the month because you think he's never talked to her. I do too because there's just an excuse to be nasty. That's all it is to be mean even though everything's five bloating. There's no camping it. It feels fine bloating. Cramping is if you don't know gives you a reason to complain more seriously. You pick a now to do this. You're out you're talking the do you wanna go back up your outside right now. You wanna step outside. I'm ready for believe my whole life. That's what you've believed your whole life. Yes that what. That is nothing big. It's just an excuse to complain. You know that kind of fits in with his belief system. You really are in the nfl idiot. Really absolutely are because the fact is there's so much research about this and you know nothing about science nothing about research and it's nothing that people. It's the fact that you still have that stupid. Neanderthal idea that it's just an excuse for women to you live in my uterus for one for one month. No thank you. That will never have well. That's what i'm saying because you couldn't handle it you would be in bed crying. Curled up in a ball sucking your thumb. Not like rest of us women who go out and we do things with our lives. Despite the fact that we're crappy and bloated in a really bad mood and crave chocolate all day lewis to it and doing it for twenty years and the second of it's not going to last much longer.

"I like a wedge of cheese. I can't entire wedge of cheese and still not get sixty five grams of western. Can't look at that stuff because you can't look the hot chocolate thing from starbucks and see the calories and you can't because you won't end up getting it right it's true. I like my arteries closing. As i drink it though but eggnog is good because right in the beginning of the holiday season you gotta get a glass eggnog. But once i have that one glass. I'm done site is wasted. A whole gallon. That's gonna sit in there till april right until it becomes like eggnog cheese and you can't even move it in the thing. I just wanna taste it. So but i that's why you get like the half a gallon like the little one There's no way. I'm drinking at all but eggnog is wasted on us because the beauty of eggnog is to make it drunk you know. I mean to to put some what he put in it rom or something. Yeah whiskey whatever you put in eggnog. That's what makes it. That's what's fun about it. But you and i both don't drink alcohol. Eggnog is wasted on us. Yeah we get the non alcoholic ones. That are in the milk. i'll go. it's a nice red carton will get that. But i might. I might try the starbucks. They might make good eggnog. I don't know so. Now i'm gonna. I'm gonna gain nine hundred more pounds just because stupid starbucks in your hot chocolate. Whatever the fuck that is. You don't have to go to starbucks issue do stall over this one on every corner just drive by and my parents for hot for christmas and birthdays and all that they give me starbucks cards twenty five of them. Yeah that have you know despite stack up in my car. I did remember that year. That i remember that one time that i tried to lose weight. Same thing i had people my boss. Everybody was giving those starbucks gift cards. What i did is i went. And i bought water. I bought starbucks water with the gift cards until i had no more gift card left. Because i knew. I'd be tempted to go and get the supermac allante fat so you'll gain weight in like two seconds drink So i just. I immediately went and bought as much water as that card would let me by. And that was the end of it near 'cause you can't drink their drip coffee because it's too boring for you and it's also tasteless. It's birth fan ken. Yeah no it's too terrible. You gotta have super unleaded. Yeah but now now if so what is today. Today's tuesday coming up thursday. Just go do you gotta try it. How do you know you. you don't like it. you gotta try it. I i have gift cards. But do what i just said. Going by. water up going to starbucks to buy water and thanking. It's expensive gifts three numb but that was the bad thing about traveling on an airplane because every airport had a starbucks yet right before the gate. So you had to go. It was a law named the one. You have chosen by the of koper anthony so as you know over the past gonna say jen years five years maybe five years dating apps have become much bigger. And i'm not talking about grinder. I'm talking dating apps where people are looking not just a hook up. But they're looking to get married like mumble and hinge schmor- know things like that match. Yeah matches more of a website but so when it comes to the dating apps they finally have some data on people that met on a dating app and got married. Do you think that they a. have better healthier stronger relationships or be when more likely to divorce within two three years. I'm gonna say they have better relationships. Why because. I think the only way that you could meet somebody before dating apps were at work a store walking down the street and nightclub bar and now you have a wider net. She can choose a little bit better but with a wider net. Doesn't that mean that you feel like there's more people available jamie like that was the biggest problem. That's what the research initially was showing that you would swipe right on somebody you'd go meet them. Be be like wow. They're great but maybe somebody better people would keep swiping on somebody and they would miss somebody that could be really good for them because they were looking for perfection but didn't exist but i think once you find that perfection and you think perfection and you get married. I think it's gonna last longer than the guy that picked you up at a bar and you went home with him that night at least on the dating app you're texting back and forth. You're having a conversation before that date a little bit better. I think it works out. It doesn't you're more likely to get divorced getting app. Yep that's what the study shows that you're yeah The majority of couples who found this -nificant other online got divorced within the first three years of marriage so twelve percent so okay so within the first three years of marriage two percent of the population gets divorced unless met on a dating app in which case twelve percent are more. That's that's that's a big job like twelve percent versus two percent So the marriage foundation is who did the study and they because now you know we've believe me. They've had enough years now that they can see who's been married and who hasn't And it's interesting after seven years of marriage if you met on a dating app the likelihood of divorce for a couple who met through an app was even higher so if you made it through the first three years you'll probably get divorced after seven. How about if you never delete the app that bad you hide it in a folder on your phone keep tabs on what's going on Yeah that's interesting. I thought it would be different right. And they're saying the reason why is because you actually don't really get to know somebody all that well 'cause you do you meet through an app so you like. Oh well they're hot or they had a good profile and you do a lot of texting back and forth but the initial part of the relationship is very superficial so it takes a while to get to know somebody so as you get to know them. You're like whoa. I made a mistake the wrong person for me. So let's say you met somebody on bumble so you met somebody on bumble yet dated two years and then you broke up i you gonna go back on bumble or are you getting a totally different you going to tender now or you going to plenty of fish or you going somewhere different.

Crews nelia who's very high maintenance proudly high maintenance see. that's yesterday. we talked about a pretty privilege. I wanna talk about high maintenance privilege because you know for so many years guys rose like you're so high maintenance yes that's who i am and i'm not gonna apologize for it like yes. I am high maintenance. I am annoying. I'm anxious some. I have a lot of like. I have a million food problems. We go out to eat mex- level when a guy says okay. I can deal with a chick to tie maintenance. He's thinking a certain level not to the extreme that you are what is he thinking like if okay so let's say you're single and i tell you i have a friend. I think you're gonna love her. She's a little high maintenance. what are you expecting. You can't say if you're talking about you a little high maintenance you got on the name level of hobby me. Take me. Take the equation. I wanna know what you think is acceptable high maintenance and what qualities you consider high maintenance. I wouldn't consider anything if you're anywhere near hot. I'm not bringing you flowers. I'm not opening the door. I'm not doing any of this stuff. I'm the high maintenance one in the relationship. Because i'm not putting up with it now. You're just that's different. No i mean it doesn't cost anything to open the door for you and you won't tell it no because then you're going to get used to it and then one day i'm not gonna do it and you're gonna say i'm cheating on you know either. You're the kind of guy that opens a door or you don't. I don't think you start opening adorned. Suddenly you decide to get your own door bitch. I think either the kinda guy like okay. My boyfriend i had been together a long time like a lot of years. He still holds doors open for me. It's not he wasn't trying to get me into bed and held doors open as a manipulation. This is the kind of guy he is still like that all these years later. Okay so i put on a face when we were dating for the first couple of months that i'm going to hold the door open but don't expect that six months in. How did this become about you. I wanna know maintenance. I think to myself i'm high maintenance so there's no way i'm gonna put up with two of us okay. Let me try this again if you were normal guy and you aren't cheap ass high maintenance you what qualities in a woman. Do you consider high maintenance. Like what does the woman have to be or do or want or need that you label. Her high maintenance have to know where. I met every second always calling always tax team where you are what are you doing. Why aren't you hear what he you know. I couldn't handle that because there are times. I just wanna disappear for few hours. And i don't want anybody to find me but you're at work and your phone is going off nonstop all day high. What are you doing what you you know i came to me. That's high maintenance right right at this point in my life i feel like i. It's a compliment if somebody only calls me high maintenance guy because you're right like look. I own it now for so many years. Those like straw nassau maintenance. And i would talk about like how down to earth i was sir how such go with the flow kinda girl but i feel like that was all just a reuss like i am not any of that i own it now like. I am definitely the kind of person that i'm willing to be like. Look i am high maintenance and what's wrong with that. It's who i am. I'm not going to change. I'm not going to be like suddenly. I'm going to not be anxious or suddenly. I'm going to want to eat those ten things that i would never touch. I mean yeah as long as you put it out there. Date one look. I'm high maintenance. I ain't gonna change nothing you're going to be able to do or say to me is going to change. How high maintenance you are gonna happen right. Which is why i am now. Wearing the cocoa beauty high maintenance had an. I will really should wear this all the time like. There's no reason why should have that on your forehead pretty much just the same and look. It's on my forehead. I'm not trying to hide it. I'm extremely that's what it should say. Extremely high maintenance. It's so funny. Because now i look back at so many guys that i dated that. I thought like this relationship is going great and then they broke up with me out of nowhere and i was like whoa. What why am i. Friends are all like. Oh he's an asshole or he did this or he did that. I look back now. And i think no these were great. Guys who looked at me and was like whoa. I'm not gonna spend my life with that bitch like that is high maintenance. I always my friends were like. Oh it's him something wrong with him. I see now it was always me. I would not categorize you as high maintenance. i. I don't think i would put you in that category. Adam put you in a category of neurotic bright and maintenance wall to me. It's a little bit different. It's your neurotic and Just the total nightmare. Total nightmare neurotic neurotic. And then. You have high maintenance. I think high maintenance once you bought a pair of three thousand dollar shoes that put you in the high maintenance category right right. that's you know. I think the two things that make me the most obnoxiously. High maintenance are my desire. For expensive footwear. Yes that that is true. But i think you know. I think all my food proclivities neurotic though i accept that as neurotic no neurotic means that that it's in my head true it is true i have sealy acts i have ibs. So i'm not. It's not like i'm eating things because i'm just trying to be annoying like they're certainly they literally cannot eat. Because i have a million things wrong with my stomach joining me and always have so. I think there's a difference. I think high maintenance kind of means that you.

We can no games. No game no you can't you can't just wants an excuse to use a gun. There's any excuse us a gun. Kens interesting yeah any any excuse. It could be anything but I wouldn't suggest anything without it being serious see. So that's why. Because i truly was concerned when i started crouching down the seat and putting my head on his lap you should have realized that i was really truly either crazy or absolutely concerned that maybe i you know maybe the shot does. She know she married can thank you so much supporting me calls. I know ken right. You heard the word gun. Didn't hear on youtube safe. Sorry can only one member of your family like a little message board next to their phone. I'm sorry i already called in tonight now. One of the things on the most upset about is the fact that my husband would clearly wouldn't take a bullet for me. I would thank you thank you. I'm sorry you weren't there with me on the train. I wish you would have been too. Because what would you have done. If i said there's a creepy guy. What would you have done. Right would gotten him. Not not sean lee married right now. You should chad. Would you take a bullet for cooper. Why would he wouldn't. What would it be dependent. Just a flesh wound. Yes just a flesh. White paper cut for cooper winter early. So i would take a bullet of flesh wound for cooper if she would stop giving away my paycheck. That's not gonna happen. You wouldn't get paper cut for me. If it would save my life you wouldn't get a paper cut paper cuts. They really hurt me a splinter. You wouldn't get a splinter for me you. You wouldn't throw your body on something that's about to kill me if there's would there and you could get splinter throwing my body on anything that would save you throw you okay. What would you throw your body on. Pamela anderson if it would save me. But she's holding a splinter and you'd have to you'd have to land on it. You throw you up. Pamela anderson with you get it not me splinter puncture something. That's true saving. Women took a splinter from and pam anderson. You'd be saying you'd be saving two women four boobs what's bad about that half three and a half. That's very true. I would take a splinter anna paper for both of you know that i would. I might even take a shard of glass. Isn't it nice to know that we wouldn't yes. It's very nice to know. I feel very safe here with you too. Yeah your own husband. Wouldn't i know this is why i should really. I don't know what's gonna happen now. I might hold an elevator for. We gotta go here the second thing that we would do for maybe hold an elevator. Thirty seconds wouldn't an email that you open an email. Okay hold the door open for if you're right behind me and i don't have to wait. I've noticed that. I have not been right behind. You need not held a door for me. You gotta be right behind me. Dan there and it's really hot outside. I have to stand there and hold the door. And i don't like that plus you'll never say thank you so so. That's the only two things i would do. I would. I would open an email and hold the door open if you're right behind because when you're out in public she's always got her olsen twins sunglasses and she's on the cell phone talking to cnn me bodyguard like i'm a bodyguard. Open her door. Open a jar for me. If i couldn't open a jar if you ask nicely because that proves our manliness we definitely see the proves our manliness other than paper cut and splinter. Paper cuts splinter. Taking a bullet. That's manley not taking a bullet seen it. In the moment. I get opening. A jar doesn't hurt. Because when i see it on the movies and even when people get shot in the news talking it's got to hurt right and i like to be hurt. We don't like pain exactly. I should be hurt instead. It's your bullet you. But here's the thing but i'm so much shorter than the two of you. That if they're aiming for my head they're only going to get you guys in the gut. You got plenty of room there. That's extra blubber there. you just. it'll probably pass right through you saying reason alone. I want you to get off your big belly now. You wonder why we won't take a bullet bullet. Your way anthony's got into his car now price. You're gonna fall out boy playing number one with a bullet okay. Fine not gonna pay cut. I'm gonna make both of you hold a door for me. We have a thing. We've think coming up on friday a lunch. And i'm gonna make you hold the door. You'd better be right behind warning right now. Check on the cell phone.

"Know you don't know and so i was half kidding and half a little creeped out by the guy and sean was joking the whole time you know. He's making jokes. He's making jokes about you. Know what he'll do when the shoot is what he's trying to do and then and then you're actually seriously mad at the poor guy. Yes he got up and running out left lane. He was still plain stupid eight-year-old game that you guys are playing well. We had salads. And i didn't talk to him over salad. You didn't talk to them when you when you went on a train to go have salad and you wonder why darted off hoping you could go find some meat. Well he had a chef sell. There's meat in it feel better and he had it with extra meat. He tell them no tomatoes. Atta boy no tomatoes carrots extra meat. And that's what he did so basically he had meet on a better eleven place those with meat products. And that's basically what he had and instead a ranch. I'll have a gravy cheese under yet. Now take the cheese off and put more meat. So he had his mute salad. And you're saying they're in silence eating your salads because you're mad at a for some imaginary game that he wouldn't take a bullet for you right. I'm mad at him because he did not protect me. When i thought when the guy had a clear shot of may sitting in the in the seat. I wanted him to like. I don't know put his arm around me or do something to you know case. I was shot to protect me. But of course you didn't you didn't verbalize any of this. You just assumed that he would know this. Because that's one of his superpowers is reading your mind. But i said i i kept bringing it up and he kept making jokes so i think he thought we were playing our game like you know. There's a sniper on the train. Okay batman you know that kind of thing. But i i was only half joking and i and i would have let it go. How did not it off the train like he did. He couldn't wait to get away from me. Can you blame you imagine that. Do they know it stopping playing and started being real. No that because i said i can't believe you won't take a bullet from me. He's like the i i got up. I walked off the train. I said no usually help me off the train. You put your hand out. That was a bum. Move your bomb. And i was really mad. Are you still mad or do you understand that that you're insane. Say well no. I i let it go eventually like two hours ago. No yeah well. I had let it go so we enjoy the rest of the weekend and then earlier when the when chattan anthony and i were on the phone talking i mentioned something about it a little bit and sean lee got mad all over again because i think he thought we dropped it and didn't realize that i was still mad. He won't take a bullet for me. I would take a bullet for him. You would not i would. I would all day long but you wouldn't. I'm telling you. I would protect that boy from from anything i would. I would stand in front of. I would definitely take happens in the movies and real life. He's running off the train. No it right. It only happens in the movies and real life which it could have been there he was he went by foot away from you through and through a glass door right. We ran a but the idea that usually helps me up He didn't help me up. He was quick to save himself. You see And leave his wife behind. This kind of was third. Rail be is right now. Matt how do i handle. What do i do right. You guys need to stay for psycho like like an sm. Say for kind of thing exactly like banana or some some mortgage would never generally use but offensive either and that would signify that. I'm truly freaking out as opposed to joking basically says I'm not playing. Yeah that's good. Do you think her insurance are crazy to behave like this or do you think it's cute now. I mean it's cute but it's not. It's not cute if you don't have boundaries if you haven't established that i mean it sounds silly to say oh you're going to be you gotta have battery but it's not silly to say that because you guys are obviously debating this debate and you're sitting. That's pc of you fighting. Sean lee nearly had a meat salad on his lap. So mad i was that you're safe. Work me so that's perfect. Oh matt you're brilliant. Okay that's what i'll do from now on. So in sean. Lee and i are playing are crazy game. We're running from aliens If i truly am freaked out and do believe there is indeed an alien or sniper sniper alien am i guess i could say mid salad right. Thank you matt. That's great advice. We can serve meat salad at bob's house of meat so we can and we should. Let's call it shawn's meat salad in honor. Really get isaac the teenager. How are yeah pretty good. Glad to be back. Welcome back is the teenager was on vacation. And that's why we haven't spoken to him in a while but thank you very much for coming back and calling us. So what do you think the guy that was behind you. Could he hear you while. You're you talking to sean. Say and he's about to shoot. He's going to kill me. He was far enough away that if he had he had to be a good shot because he was now on the other end of the car but sitting facing the back of my head as opposed to before when he was sitting just to our so he would have had to shoot all the way across the car through fifty people to he you know. He had a clear shot. There was nobody behind me or the seat. There were like three or four seats between the guy us. You would still have to aim cooper. Have you realize that you're insane. I like you know the guy could have had a gun. How do i know we've. Us things happen. Isaac and you're the one of seventeen years of psychological training and you don't realize here and say i'm a practical. Okay there's one. Four cooper is psycho kerry. Hi terry i think i'm okay. What do you think. I'm a little scared of you right now. How's that entire situation. I i know what to say. I feel so sorry for some leave. It was it was like okay. Yeah we're normally paying the game but you have three my nine and no. We're not playing anymore and you have to pick up on. All my nonverbal cues to know. Exactly what i'm thinking and i was like oh god but here's my logic. Teri my logic is usually we pretend there's somebody up in a tree and we have to run. This was an actual person. This was a person that i was literally afraid of. And even though i was still kind of joking about it. I was sorta serious. It wasn't like you know. Oh my god.

"When you're on the subway do you do you call it the chew train. No do you wear your little engineer. Hats onto the subway. Enjoying yourself kid. I think i can. I can make into the next stop without getting killed you limited when you're done. Hey let's pretend this. Is thomas the trick subway. Or they're gonna they're gonna pretend it's like the french connection or something. Yeah we we like like action. adventure pretends. Yeah we like to pretend that sort of thing so the year twenty seventy and we're going to the moon. We'll do stuff like that now. Okay so so here. We are on the train. Let me paint the picture for you here. We are on the train. And there's a guy sitting a couple of seats in front of us and to the left and shawn's just sort of looking out the window check whatever checking out and no no. He wasn't he was actually engaged in the window. What was going on outside and that kind of thing. look honey. there's somebody on the wing got on a plane. I think we are. I pretended we're on a plane. If you look over there you could see the grand canyon. We're never going to be so so the guy now. I know that we usually pretend stuff. So sometimes it gets in my head. And i maybe the sound a little wacky and little out there but this guy was a little weird and he got up and like stared at me in a weird way and then walked and said something so i wasn't sure whether he was talking to me or not so i turn around and look at him and the guy and i made eye contact and he was really creepy. So i thought. I said sean i just made eye contact with this creepy guy who just moved his seat for no apparent reason. Now he's sitting behind us. What i do if he pulls out a gun and tries to shoot me he's got a perfect shot and shawn's like stop it he's fought and you're going to be fine. We're getting off in like two stops anyway. Don't worry so. I start crouching down in my seat and then i leaned my head a little. Bit towards sean lake barrington shoulder as we're having conversation hoping he's not noticing that i am now completely hidden in case this guy pulls out a gun. I don't want to a clear shot in my head. So i sit to sean. Now what would you do if the guy shot me. He said. I guess i'd get brains all over me right i. That's what you would do perfectly logical. Answer let me just sell you. Let me tell you this is a guy who has absolutely. He has stood up for me many times. We actually had a situation a while back. I'll get into another time. We had a situation on the another. We actually in new jersey. Where would never go again. We actually in new jersey and a guy bought. I was alone and started picking a fight with me and then sean walked over and sean ended up really grabbing the sky and getting his face this because you walk so fast. You're fifty feet exactly what happened. How did you know. Chad bauer with you. Oh my goodness that is exactly what happened. So so when the guy realized that. I wasn't alone in sean. Was there sean. Took this guy out. Okay back to thomas the tank okay so any legitimate threat was legitimate threat. Was there anybody else in this space car to the future with you. Yeah the car was had people on it so lots of people lots of people but this guy made eye contact with me and i said i think he's after me now. I think he's gonna shoot me. What are you going to do. And shawn's like the mood to play you know. And he was like nothing nothing. You'll be fine. He's not gonna shoot you start crouching. Dan leaned my head on his lap. He's like oh great. Now you're pro now. You think you're protected. He's gonna you know so the train stops and normally what sean does his. Here's what a gentleman he is. Usually he gets up and puts out his hand and helps his little wife up. And then you know we. We walked to the doors together. Usually he does that. Put his head of this guy. Has a gun shot. The the train stops the doors open. Sean gets up and darts for the door and leaves me there behind. Did he thought he thought his prayers were finally being added. I might say exactly. I think he thought she's probably fine but on the off chance that she's not fine. The guy is going to shoot her. Here's my big opportunity to get rid of. Aren't it's not going to be my doing. It's like you know he fantasizes about maybe calling a hit out on me. This is the best way because this is he's not involved and he's got rid of me. Raise your hand if we blame sean. Nobody's so and he leaves the train. And i get up and leave the doors practically shut on me he. He was darting out of their nine. I nearly didn't make it out of the train. And i get out and i said what was that about. He goes what do you mean you left me back there. If the guy really was gonna shoot me he would've had a clear shot now now. When did this stop being playful game. And when the star like the real world when did it start being real well as we're walking up the stairs out of the train station. He was joking still. He's like he's still making jokes is like well. Good thing he did avenues. You could have gotten both of us or that kind of thing. And i was like no sean really it was. It was a bone move of you. If the guy was really going to do something to me you left me there hanging in the wind you were off the train. What if the guy like. Grab my arm. Put me back on the train. You couldn't afford anything about it and he was like a you really mad. I'm like i 'cause i would take a bullet for you and you clearly won't take a bullet from. Aw now. we know what his life is. we're getting. It's like peeling sue every layer you pull away. He just gets getting scares with you. Just playing around yes like. There's somebody behind the tree in the park lane. Yes and that's usually scituate. Usually we're playing around. But i have to still plane by jumping off the train. Well he was playing. But i have to tell you that i i was. I was a tiny bit concerned because the guy was a little creepy and the way that he looked at me and then sets up into me. That i didn't hear when i turned around. He made an eye contact with me. Like don't screw with me honey. And i i looked back quickly and you know i've heard i you know i'm a city girl but i don't know every single city and this was a city. We're not really familiar with. So i don't know what goes on in this particular city. Maybe maybe that people that are violent. I don't know what the guy's gonna do broad daylight and there's a car full of people and it's going to happen. Spiderman could be anywhere it can happen at any given time. You.

"Up on that scale it's amazing how we've built so many holidays and celebrations around food Do i mean i understand that. Like food is a delicacy and there's certain foods that represent certain things and they have a lot of meaning and religious connotations in some cultures. And whatever i get that but the fact that there's so many holidays in a row and so much food like i wish that there was some way of celebrating and some other way like dances. Should halloween dance or a turkey dance turkeytrot. I mean like just do something like this year. I want to try and do something else other than because it's was covert i just. I spent every day around food. You're i mean it was like. Oh it's thursday time to have this for dinner. Oh it's friday pizza night. So i feel like i just celebrated eighteen months of food and eating. I wanna try to make these next holidays about something else other than food. That's my plan. But i blame it on families because you look at a family like mine that everybody brings us. I don't know three plates. You know somebody brings desert somebody and then it ends up. There's so much to eat right and you gotta eat everything. You can't not not eat something my sister brought right because then she's gonna feel bad he gotta eat that so leftovers you gotta eat it again the next day. Yeah yeah and leftovers. Thanksgiving leftovers can last weeks right now so no. I'm not looking forward to sunday. Which is thanksgiving and then monday. That's when christmas begins right. That's true the day after thanksgiving the night by by midnight. Already this already christmas and it's already here. Were week away from christmas. Yeah our problem. Is i've always. I've always cooked for everybody in the neighborhood. So i have my parents come over.

"Biden takes. The helm appeals for unity to take on crises. Kamala harris becomes the first woman to be vice president and biden targets trump policies on climate virus and immigration. It's thursday january twenty one. I'm anthony davis. Joe biden was sworn in as the forty sixth president of the united states on wednesday. Declaring democracy has prevailed and summoning american resilience and unity to confront the deeply divided nations historic confluence of crises denouncing. A national uncivil. War biden took the oath at the us. Capitol that had been battered by an insurrectionist siege. Just two weeks earlier. Then taking his place at the white house oval office he plunged into a stack of executive actions that began to undo the haunt of his polarizing predescessors agenda on matters from the deadly pandemic to climate change at the capitol with the american tradition of peaceful transfer of power never appearing more fragile. The quadrennial ceremony unfolded within a circle of security forces evocative of a war zone and devoid of crowds. Because of the coronavirus pandemic instead biden gazed out on a cold washington morning dotted with snow flurries to see over two hundred thousand american flags planted on the national mall to symbolize those who could not attend in person. The will of the people has been heard and the will of the people has been heated. We've learned again. Democracy is precious and democracy is fragile at this hour. my friends. Democracy has prevailed biden declared in his speech. This is america's day. This is democracies day a day in history and hope of renewal and resolve. History was made at his side as kamala harris became the first woman to be vice. President the former. Us senator from california is also the first black person and the first person of south asian descent elected to the vice presidency and the highest ranking woman ever to serve in the us government rare inaugural address president joe biden issued a strong repudiation of white supremacy and domestic terrorism on the rise on the donald trump in his speech biden denounced racism negativism fear demonization. That propels the assault on capitol hill by an overwhelming white mob of trump's supporters who carried symbols of hate including the confederate battle flag biden never mentioned his predecessor who defied tradition and left town ahead of the ceremony but his speech was an implicit rebuke of donald trump. The new president denounced lies told for power and for profit and was blunt about the challenges ahead central among them the surging virus that has claimed more than four hundred thousand lives in the united states as well as economic strains and a national reckoning over race. We have much to do in this winter of peril significant possibilities few people in our nation's history of been more challenged or found a time more challenging or difficult than the time we're in now biden said the absence of biden's predescessor from the inaugural ceremony undescored. The national rift to be healed but a bipartisan trio. Former presidents bill. Clinton george w bush and barack obama with there to witness the transfer of power biden in his third run for the presidency staked his candidacy less on any distinctive political ideology then on galvanizing a broad coalition of voters around the notion that trump posed an existential threat to american democracy for years after trump's american carnage speech painted a dark portrait of national decay biden warned that the fabric of the nation's democracy was tearing but could be repaired swearing the oath with his hand on a five inch thick bible. That has been in his family for one. Hundred and twenty eight years biden came to office with a well of empathy and resolve born by personal tragedy as well as a depth of experience forged for more than four decades in washington
