"I mean, that was some of the most brilliant Medicaid work in one volume I'd seen in many, many, many years. So congratulations on that. And thank you for referencing or that reminder. But the question here, again, is mental health, because a lot of this pre note, alcohol, drug abuse, and of course related suicide suicide ideation, his fundamentally behavioral mental health issue, so coincident with these other three major causes of mortality you would have say would of course is behavioral health issues. Feel free, do you have comment on that? Yeah, you know, the mental health was a tough one. Because the data aren't great out there. So sorry, I keep coming back to the day that that's what the report was about. And it's just that we don't, you know, on our surveys, we don't ask, we don't ask about mental health in the same way. But clearly the mental health is a huge issue. And it also relates to the case. Indeed and argument about despair. You know, we didn't really take on that despair, notion. We just said, again, you know, that we don't have good measures of despair yet in our national data in our surveys. But we did feel, you know, for sure that there is a, you know, that, I mean, we did believe that there is something there about despair that is related to sort of mental health. That's related to a hopelessness, you know, for the future, you know, I mentioned the certain communities were really affected like Appalachia, which had the opioid, you know, where the opioid epidemic was at one point concentrated and of course it spread everywhere. And there definitely is this feeling that if you can't,.

"I think this idea of habit is so interesting. Because i generally think have created good habits in my life that support me and my overall wellbeing and they do narrow the experiences that i tend to have you know so. I've been really interested in this idea that we need a certain amount of habit and a certain amount of flexibility you know. How do we have both you know. How do i have enough habit that it supports my wellbeing positive habits and yet how do i have enough flexibility in life that things. Don't get so dull. Bright i mean for james it was also an issue of consciousness. It wasn't just the actions that you took but it's also the ways that you can look at the world and the willingness to look at different things usually are angle of vision is so narrow that we see the world through very circumscribed frame. It's usually a frame of utility. It's usually a frame of like. Do we have money to pay rent. Our our kids doing okay. Our partners doing all right. Do i have closed for tomorrow. It's usually about me. You know all about me. All about i and james was repeatedly saying that consciousness is mind blowing large. I mean the abilities that we have to take in. The world are actually quite astonishing. Are habitual lives narrow what we can see and what we can make sense of but he was always encouraging us to see beyond them. He he tells this famous story about going through a poor community in appalachia and james goes by a house and he admits to his listeners. He says at first. This house looked so horrible. I couldn't imagine how anyone would live. There didn't look at all like my cambridgehouse. And then james says to himself he says how narrow and how silly that perspective is and that's the certain blindness in human beings. I mean it just that you interpret reality through yourself right. And then james comes to the position he says overcoming that certain blindness would be something like realizing that others live lives that are as vibrant as your own and as meaningful as your own and absolutely different from you but still meaningful and vibrant when we talk about habit. It's not just an action. it's also about the way that you take in the world. It's about how you see the world. Yeah you say in the book. At one point our volition and the practical pursuits structure and organizer alive is. What keeps us from recognizing the.
The Lady Bird Johnson recordings and what they tell us
"Thursday may fourteenth. Virginia in mid may is bombed for any troubles. No silent spring here. The green archer fresh bring leaves almost met over the rutted country. Would occasionally you would see a bright. Little chipmunk perched on radio fans it's been a bad week in washington lady. Bird finds herself in the rare uncomfortable position of being the subject of some pretty scathing press. So she's fled. Dc to get out of the spotlight and come to hunt. Land and estate in middleburg virginia about an hour outside of washington. Lbj and lady. Bird had made high profile tours of appalachia. I mainly on poor whites for one of the administration's first initiatives it's war on poverty and they've quoted massive press coverage tv radio and prince. Johnson continues the president's attack on poverty as she travels to the economically depressed areas of kentucky. The forty five counties making up this area present one of the nation's worst pictures poverty several times. Mrs johnson holzer motorcade degreed local school children who have gathered along. The roadside ladybird has been a public face for this up until now the media has loved her. There's actually no vice president at the moment because lbj was the bp under kennedy and according to the constitution there's no automatic replacement for him lbj's going to announce a running mate at the convention in august at the press corps. Traveling with the first lady has started referring to her as mrs. vice president. How serious is that. i don't know not fairy. But they've clearly picked up on something real about the way. She works with lyndon in a typical piece. Editorial in the lexington herald in kentucky asks. Why not an lbj and lbj ticket. Look no farther lyneham. Your big problem of running mate for this fall is now solved. It's none other than that. Charming texan. lady. Bird johnson ladybird lasted off but all this recognition has also made her a target. Read the papers and absorb the shock. Aptitude republican congressman's visit to my tenants that i pogo county. A couple of gop congressman decided to take their own poverty. Tour to alabama where ladybird has almost four thousand acres used for cotton and timber farming that she inherited from her mother's family. The congressmen go see lady bird tenants and put out some grainy black and white photos showing their ramshackle conditions tin roof shacks with collapsing foundations. No running water basically. She's being made to look like a slum lord and those optics as they say in politics are terrible. It could have been worse. I've got to thank some way to turn it into. A constructed in ladybird been in public life for decades. And she's savvy about the press. She understands the story could deal them real political damage so her first constructive step was to avoid the press by getting out of town. That's what's brought her to hunt land back in. Washington linden's really struggling. His civil rights. Bill is stuck. In congress is war counseled dean rusk mcgeorge bundy and robert mcnamara all holdovers from kennedy are pressing him on vietnam and he has a raging toothache and i was almost asleep. A little after tway out. He called me. It was a sad happy. Talk large about the alabama tenants and about his restive desire to seek a way out of the burdens. He carries but the real source of his pain. He's actually thinking about not running. November linden is fundamentally insecure. He knows he wasn't elected that he's just there because kennedy was assassinated. He doesn't believe he has a mandate and he doesn't think he can win despite an approval rating of seventy four percent. You could argue that. This is all in his head but part of him. A big part just wants out ladybird invited. Lbj's to longtime doctors to drive out to hunt one for dinner Linden had a major heart attack at heartland almost ten years ago in nineteen fifty five. It's never really out of mind for either of them so at dinner that night with the doctors. She'd heard what they thought about his fitness. And we're going to give him a thorough medical going. The next morning and night we only talked about the psychological aspects. I don't know though that either one really understands the depth of his pain winning af faces up to the possibility of sending many thousands. American boys vietnam both ladybird linden can see the writing on the wall. Vietnam could easily derail his presidency. Their ambitions for civil rights the sweeping great society programs. He's just laid out for his doctors leave to go back. Washington bird hands them. An envelope marked personal but its contents are political to on the phone the night before linden had asked her to set out the pros and cons. I wrote at for london about a nine page analysis of what i thought he situation was. I she types out that press release. It's a bit of psychology. This is what it would feel like to announce you're not running. Then on a spiral bound steno pad ladybird writes those nine pages laying out his options This letter or what. I think is more accurately. Her strategy memo is been sitting at the lbj library forever. Pretty much overlooked by historians.
Indoor Farming With Jackie Roberts Of Appharvest
"Okay. So we've all seen greenhouses interviewed domino olen for example who runs the greenhouse at george mason university in virginia about how her facilities providing food and even spices to the university's food service and see greenhouses with just flowers like it were states and other properties and now we see cannabis plants being grown in greenhouses. But what about greenhouses on a commercial scale and ones that recycle water do not use toxic. Fertilizers or get more out of the acreage than tenting and outdoor farm would right. Well that's what my guest today says there novel. Indoor farm will actually do so. Let's find out how it works. I'd like you to meet jackie. Roberts chief sustainability officer at ap harvest. Jackie has been in the sustainability spaces. I said for probably twenty five years including in the same role chief sustainability officer at the carlisle group which is investment company and as senior director of the environmental defense fund. Or where. I first met her probably about ten years ago. I think it was right. She earned all her degrees from yale. Smart cookie that she is including a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering and to help them manage degrees one from the yale. School of management and the other from the school of the environment without further ado welcomed green captions radio jackie. And thank you for joining us. I'm so excited. Thank you down. It's great to be here. Oh you're welcome. you're welcome. Congratulations on your new role at app harvest. Give us an overview of the indoor farms. How does app harvest actually work. Where they you know. where is it located. I chance in appalachia but give us a little more details. You know kind of what you're growing give us give us the proverbial thirty thousand foot view app harvest. I think is a really unique company in that are core product which is healthy vegetables is combined with a very sustainable climate. Resilient way of growing those vegetables and we're doing it in appalachia where the opportunity for job growth and economic development is really appreciate The the core product is a chemical pesticide free In in our first large greenhouse which you can see a picture of in my background but at sixty acres for those who can't see it Is a growing tomatoes and chemical pesticide free. Gmo free because the way we can grow in a closed system enables us to use biological pest approaches to control pests and disease and also a lot of trained workers and other interventions that can prevent outbreak. So we you know as a mother with three children knowing that what's coming out of our greenhouses is zero. Residue is a real attribute that i value. But how we grow it in your introduction spoke to it is we are very climate resilient in their storms that the that recently hit we had some employees that had trouble getting to work other people had to pitch in. We had one employee show up on their tractor to make sure they could get to work But you know we really did incredibly well in terms of being resilient. We had all the things we needed. We were harvesting on time stuff was getting out to the markets and it was a real testament to this strategy as an important part of the mix of different types of agriculture and When when we're growing We are able to use one hundred percent rainwater. We have a system of irrigation. That is set up where the rainwater is captured on the top of our sixty roofs it stored in a retention pond. And then we bring it into the greenhouse with a little bit of filtration through sand and you'd be late and that water re circulates. We don't ever a released anything into the atmosphere. The nutrients are put into the water and stay in the water until we need to add more. We can measure very precisely. It's a space where a has really enabled us to do very precise measurements and the plants. Exactly what they need. We do Nanotechnology with the water. Because bringing more oxygen into the water enables the plans to absorb the nutrients even better but all of that is is a closed system. And you know when when. I started in chemical engineering. The reason i went into chemical engineering is a wonderful professor. Who said if you care about environmental problems you should study chemical engineering because you learn how system works and where all the pollution comes from and how it's released to the environment
Heavy rains lead to rescues, road closures in Appalachia
"Residents in parts of Appalachia have been running from the heavy rain or being rescued parts of Kentucky Tennessee and West Virginia have been getting pummeled the heavy rain has lead to water rescues mud slides road closings and power failures in Tennessee a truck carrying four adults and a baby slid off a bridge but fortunately they were rescued in will county Kentucky the sheriff rescue for adults in a toddler from a vehicle trapped in floodwaters by using a tractor with a front end loader some schools are closed or delayed classes and power got knocked out for tens of thousands of people in Kentucky and West Virginia high water and mud slides have been blocking roads in the region I'm ready to fall late
As COVID-19 ravages the world, closing the digital divide is more critical than ever
"The digital divide continues to be. A massive problem made worse by the coronavirus. Pandemic things are especially bad in appalachia. I'm roger chang and this is your daily charge sina is once again taking a look at this problem. Our series crossing the broadband divide and story in the latest package. Takes a look at the unique problems in appalachia a region with some of these slowest access speeds and accordingly lows incomes in the country with us to talk about. This is editor. Ray hodge welcome. Ray hey roger how are you so to kick things off. He gives us a sense of how big the broadband gap problem is in this area. I loved do that if we could actually find that information out in an accurate way and see. That's the that's the core problem. Isn't it the the big core problem here is that we don't have a full and complete rendering of the map of this digital divide because for many years. Now our our mapping has focused on deployment and not speed or actual access so while we have information about what census tracts have at least one connected household in them. We don't actually know. How many houses in each one of these census tracts is connected end accessing broadband much less whether or not they're getting the speeds that we normally classified as high speed broadband right and so we are looking at numbers that are probably severely. Undercounted the sec report which came out last month said that the number of folks who don't have access to broadband when down to fourteen point five million from about eighteen million a year ago most broadband experts. I think almost all broadband experts including the federal government and folks on the fcc all agree that that number is probably dramatically low and undercounted And and there's been a lot of issues you pointed out with the data behind these broadband maps that the fcc charge of some changes coming and we'll talk about that later later in the but let's let's get back to your story because you take a look at the appalachian region specifically you grew up in kentucky. You still live near louisville this curious. What broadband access has been like for you your family and how. It's changed over the years so we were based out of eastern kentucky. My family was and we've moved away from there. So i'm i'm what you would call the gas for the appalachian diaspora but i didn't get Internet in central kentucky until the same year. We got city water. Run out to our place somewhere around nine hundred ninety eight something like that and even though of course it was it was screeching -ly slow. Pardon the the the dialup pun. But yeah it's been intermittent right so it's taken that long to get it and where i live now in louisville i've got one gig fibre pay around sixty dollars a month. Which is the national average but there are still people out in the areas. Where i used to live in where you know. It may cost him one hundred dollars a month to get dsl equivalent speeds. It's insane the disparity there but growing up with This sort of Slow crawl towards access. It's remarkable to see what progress has been made because there is some but it's incredibly frustrating to see that after decades. This is still happening. These these problems are still happening. You're still dealing with a basic infrastructure and speeds. That are nearly unusable when it comes to like that so you talked a bit about the map and faulty data behind that but what are some of the other issues that has made broadbent hard to come by in this region so we've got a constant narrative going on where it's always sort of presented as a problem with hilly terrain and were unable to run lines or the the issue is often kind of bought and sold by that narrative. And that's really that's only one small part of the equation right. It's not just about hilly terrain because we've been able to make all kinds of technological advancements in these areas all kinds of construction industries like the mining and coal industry have no problem navigating hilly terrain. So you know. Mountains are not necessarily the thing that is always stopping Companies running out there a lot of the times it has to do with the fact that When it comes to infrastructure it has to do with the fact that it's not as profitable for for companies to run lines out into rural areas right even though they may be picking up subsidies and there was some fraud that had gone on in different rural regions By companies historically who claim to have all these people connected and then didn't so that's one part of it the infrastructure politics behind that the other part of it is that there are two digital heights right. There's one which is i. Don't have the lines. I'm divided from my lines. The other one is. I'm divided from the ability to pay for it which is actually the bigger digital divide across rural and urban areas.

"Plus so in appalachia where economic coal mining been. Well it's been declining in its economic value for many years and it's competing with the powder river basin for example in wyoming on the production of coal. And so how do you deal with dramatic challenges with pollution in those communities where the water is toxic because of a drainage people have no economic opportunities because they were dependent on that coal mining their community safe to live in so it becomes a you know an equity issue in terms of the communities that are damaged and the coal miners have no work and so power plus said. Let's unlock the money..
The battle over Chinese tech might not change under a Biden administration
"One thing. The biden administration will inherit when it comes into. Office is a trade and tech war with china. President trump put all kinds of restrictions on american companies doing business with china on the use of technology from chinese companies like z. T. weiwei bans on chinese smartphone. Sales here and of course an executive order banning tiktok and we chat that still in court the moves were ostensibly about national security but also an effort to keep china from developing the next generation of technology. Faster than the us. Sam sacks is a cyber fellow at the nonprofit new america and a research scholar at yale. I asked her what. Us china tech relations are like right now. I think it's just creating this. Uncertainty are us companies going to have to choose. They want to tap into essential founding to bring home manufacturing to the united states or they want to choose to be in china at tap into gusty or policy in china. And it's kind of creating a sort of zero sum environment for business. The what does that mean for the incoming biden administration. What might we see. Around these restrictions via administration one wants to shift away from a unilateral approach going to partners and allies in europe. And saying hey if you don't ban away from your networks we're not going to share intelligence with you anymore. I think we're going to still see a hard line. Approach on companies like wow way but the intent is to do it with other countries The challenge here with the multilateral approach is here's a real digital divide across the atlantic right now and european officials have basically said we're just as concerned about the unregulated power of silicon valley companies as we are about authoritarian Coming from china one had bridged. At digital chasm and to there are countries in europe that are really dependent on chinese exports and it actually double down or invest in rnd china interesting so the biden administration may attempt to pursue a more multilateral approach. But find that the isolation is kind of embedded. it's not as global and effort as as we thought. I think they're going to have to really walk back from the isolationism under the trump administration. And also i think get our own house in order when it comes to technology policy european concerns about in the us have to do with things like however regulating privacy and anti and surveillance here. Which sundays are bigger issues than just china. So we have to find alignment on those grounds before. We can begin to work with europe as a counterweight to china. What has china done in the interim to become an even more important supplier to other parts of the world by placing these restrictions on china. Did the us actually force china to kickstart more of its own technology. Chinese government has long talked about weaned off of reliance on foreign technology and they throw billions of dollars in a lot of policy support at industries like semiconductors but then they haven't really succeeded at doing it. I think what happened though. Is the Away these were wakeup calls. That said you know what. It's this is a national security issue if companies like wal wait get embargoed from chips and software so. Let's make sure we do this right. And we've seen as a doubling down on china's efforts to wean off foreign technology. You know maybe time around will be successful. It's been studying in the past though. And then what about strategically growing the tech sector in the us moving semiconductor development to the united states. Being less reliant on that chinese supply chain. Have we seen that. Start to expect it to continue jill really early days. So there's a number of bills making their way through congress which would create more incentives for us companies to invest in our d. manufacturing. At home. you know this is one of the areas. I think where a divided congress might actually make some progress China has had made in china twenty twenty-five baited america. Twenty twenty five may come back around and particularly if you're happy. Gop led senate where they're going to try to block a lot of up biden initiatives american industrial policy might be the one area where they kindergarten. What about tiktok do you think we're gonna get to keep it biden administration probably thanks. There are bigger data security risks out there than tiktok one and two. There's a real concern about the overuse of executive authority. The problem is that it really politically difficult to stand. Our the litigation. That's going on. I think politically will be hard for the biden administration to withdraw that case even if they think there's bigger fish to fry and there are a lot of problems that come with setting a precedent like bannon and appalachia talk. But it's not going to be easy to do. I don't think will be top of his agenda.
Coronavirus cases go up, the market goes down
"Yet things up it's pretty simple. Virus cases are way way higher in way more places. There is no relief package coming probably February at the earliest if at all, if everybody is honest with themselves. And that's it that all spills over into the real economy which the stock market is not thank you very much but it does reflect and so you get a cratering day on Wall Street today all three major indices off three three and a half percent all sectors got clobbered including the reason commercial aviation. We mentioned that because Boeing reported a quarterly loss of four hundred and sixty, six, million dollars this morning planes just aren't selling right now company also said it's GonNa lay off and other seven thousand people. So marketplaces and Euler gets his going with a story about a company that is a big factor in that real economy I was talking about. Boeing said today expects to end next year with around one hundred, thirty, thousand employees. It started twenty twenty with a workforce of one, hundred, sixty, thousand. Richard Otto Lafi as an aviation analyst at -Til Group historically, Boeing's been the world single biggest planemaker and the biggest single exporting manufacturer in the US. So it really isn't needle mover in terms of the broader economy and Sorta like Ge. Boeing has worked to diversify Boeing has a lot of commercial military defense software and engineering programs. It's not just building the. Big Seven, forty, seven jets of old. That's Arthur Wheaton at Cornell University. It's a pretty big corporation and has a huge impact on supply chains. He says there's a vast array of subcontractors in the US and worldwide that produce four and with Boeing. So in demand for Boeing products declines, it's felt by many of Boeing seventeen, thousand suppliers like those who make. Jet Engines and parts for wings keeping my you know these are not just people that are turning wrench. Michael Boyd is an aviation industry consultant in Evergreen Colorado. So it's not like just getting rid of couple of mechanics you're getting rid of some highly trained people that you're going to have to get back eventually when people eventually returned to flying but Richard. APPALACHIA te'o groups as his fear is that manufacturing will soon start feeling the pain of the pandemic like retail and hospitality already have and I think unfortunately, we're bound to see additional production cuts in job losses in the commercial aerospace industry along with other similar losses and other parts of the economy because as the biggest companies go so goes the American economy. I mean dealer for

"appalachia" Discussed on Nopeville
"I've been through Appalachia and west of the Rockies and I have to say there's just something about the Ozarks that stands out like that kid in high school that didn't seem much but she always looked at me with those soulless Eyes Only to then look away when I noticed wait, she may have just had a crush on me. I'm so fucking bad with hint. Regardless the Ozarks scary Boo. Don't get me wrong there beautiful during the day. But once the Sun dies and the Moon is corn. That's when the woods take a life of their own within the darkness the woods become quiet almost deafening if you stand still and listen, all you hear is the ringing in your ears as they panic and search for something anything to feed their undying thirst or sound eventually settling on your heartbeat its pulse goes through the trees. It was one such quiet evening that my family heard a goddamn Dow hoarse. Howl horse. Oh, you need me to elaborate. Yes..
Apple product-launch event features one big unknown
"I'm not even going to wait. To Bury the leader, I am going to lead with the lead, which is apple's. Upcoming special event that's going to be happening on Tuesday the apple time flies special event virtual event. Not GonNa. Have any press their in person, but they are going to hold it on. Apple's campus. As. A matter of fact they put up a web page on their site for the virtual event and it has a little hidden Easter egg feature. If you go to the page on and I, list of ice, an IPAD or an iphone, and you tap on the little event logo, Apple Logo, you get a whole augmented reality experience that you can play around with. So it's pretty interesting I won't give away what is if you haven't seen it yet just fire up your way you're safari on Ios and go to the apple event page, but the event is going to be streamed live September fifteenth starting at ten Am Pacific Time from the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park campus. They're saying this one is going to be streamed I believe. So I don't know if there's going to be reproduced like they did the last apple event for worldwide developer conference or if it actually is truly going to be a live event, we'll just have to wait and see they are saying lives. So take them at their word on that one. As you can probably guess from the title, it is believed that this event is going to focus on Apple Watch, Time flies, watch it all fits. Typically, apple announces new watches alongside their iphones but as with almost everything this year this year is different. We already know that apple had plans to delay the announcements of release of the IPHONE that came up actually in the worldwide developer conference call or was it last quarterly results colleague Arab? Quarterly. Results called that came up and So we're not expecting iphones, but we are expecting Apple Watch. So Apple Watch series six is should be coming out. The rumors are looking to be true. We're expecting them to add a blood oxygen level monitoring as the main new health feature in it. Also, we're hearing about improved cardio gram or electrocardiogram features. Also, design is expected to remain mostly the same although we could always get some new finishes colors. Of course, new watch bans usually come out seasonally around this time. So the new fall colors we would expect to see that there is some hints that there might be a new blue color. Midnight Blue Agassi's this is also a rumor we've been hearing about surrounding the iphone twelve that it might come in a new. Blue Color. I'm I'm kind of thinking with a name like midnight blue. That it could be more like blue black SORTA like they did with the the green model in the iphone eleven although the logo for the new event is kind of this Pale lighter blue and I've seen some mockups and some people suspecting that it could be that sort of blue collar. But I think they specifically said midnight blue, which says to me a deep rich dark black. Style. Blue. So we could get a new color apple-watching that could be a hint of a possible new color item they a lot of times like to match those things and then there was also It's expected that they're going to drop the forced touch feature and that's mostly because they're also removing from watch os seven. So it doesn't really make sense need to have the hardware in there anymore, and apple has been moving away. From force touch. With all of their products in recent years. So that makes sense. There's also a rumor that I read that it could possibly the new Apple Watch. have. A fast charging feature to help better support the new sleep tracking that's coming in watch seven. So the ideas you'd be sleeping through the night and then when you're getting up in the morning I would remind you to throw it on the charger get charged back up for the day. and. So if you had a fast charging feature I think more people would be willing to do that to know the not going to run out with their to not. They're not going to excuse me run out of. Battery do during the day. So those are some of the new features planned for the APPALACHIA six or rumored to be planned for the Apple Watch series six. Also at this event, there are possible rumors of a replacement for the Apple Watch series three most of this information coming from leaker John Prosser. Says this is going to be the lower cost option. Apple has had the Apple Watch series three in the lineup that was kind of entry level Apple Watch, and then you would move from there. He says, the design would largely remain the same as the Apple Watch series for with a forty forty millimeter and a forty four millimeter size available. One of the things they would do to keep the cost down would would be that the new watch would not have some of the more advanced features like the e c g APP or the always on display definitely going to be an entry level model he also mentions the branding would be that the low cost model would be the Apple Watch with the series six, possibly getting a new apple watch pro branding, and while on the surface that makes a lot of sense considering how apple. Markets some of their other products and the other parts of the lineup kind of brings it in line with all of that, there has been some. there has been some conflicting information coming from I'm more who has been calling the new lower cost Apple Watch replacement for the Apple Watch series three Apple Watch S E and You know apple often will play around with different marketing names in different branding, leading all the way up to the event. So all of this kind of has to be taken with a grain of salt we won't really know to apple till apple announces it. So they've probably played around with all this branding. Do we take the low cost model and call it the se in that kind of matches with some of our other branding? Do we go the whole Apple Watch, Apple Watch pro route and I'm sure they've thought of it all. Who knows what they've actually decided on I? Guess we'll find out at the event on Tuesday.
Podcasts about Ireland
"This week's team comes to us from Kevin Dolan and it's called podcast. It's about Ireland here's why Kevin chose this theme he writes. A host of a podcast on Irish history I've been amazed with the interest around the world with our little island with that in mind I thought I'd share some of my favorite podcast episodes about the island of saints and scholars. Here are the episodes chosen by Kevin, for this week's theme along with short descriptions of each episode. The first one comes to us from the history of Ireland and the episode is called setting the scene. It's eleven minutes long. In this, the inaugural episode, the Party's players and movements bouncing around Ireland in the early nineteen hundreds are introduced. Next up the episode comes to us from the Irish. Passport podcast and is called who were the celts it's sixty nine minutes long. Celtic. Identity is politically powerful, but historically nebulous a subject of debate among historians and archaeologists while being a source of inspiration to some an irritation to others. In this episode Naomi and Tim Visit Celtic Music Festival in the Netherlands to explore why the concept has such. International. Appeal, Tim Explores the political use and abuse of the idea of the celts in debates about identity and nationalism in Scotland and Ireland. The. Next episode comes to us from Radio Lab and is called tweak the vote sixty six minutes long. In this episode democracy is on the ropes in the United States and abroad citizens of democracies are feeling increasingly alienated, disaffected and powerless. Some are even asking themselves a question that feels almost too dangerous to say out. Loud. Is Democracy fundamentally broken. Next up, the PODCAST is called mother folklore and the episode is called the Blue Blue Grass of Home Irish in Appalachia. It's forty minutes long. In this episode, Rebecca Welles a singer in Nashville tells the lads about her Appalachian Roots and the influence of Irish music on bluegrass and other musical traditions. The last episode of the week comes to us from the blind boy podcasts and is called the Goblin of strange uncertain times it sixty two minutes long. In this episode, a hot take on society's response to Corona virus through the Lens of Grief Psychology, a post Catholic view of Ireland's response. Those are the episodes chosen by Kevin for this week's theme podcasts about Ireland.
Identifying Sedges and Rushes
"GONNA start off with a section for the plant new talking about what the differences are between surges, grasses and rushes and C. L. had a pneumonic device or saying that I really liked and I. Bet. It's going to help you remember what the differences are. So C L would you share that with US please note this sort of to my mind when I was at the Garden Center where I work the other day and one of my fellow employees, he brought a a plant but some customer had growing in his lawn and he said I always get confused between the correct the sensors and the grasses, and I'm not sure which this is and he gave it to me and I said, well, here's how you can remember said just have edges Russia's are round and grasses have nodes from the tips to the ground. I like that one a lot. It's a good thing to help people figure out how to identify their own plants for so many reasons first of all, because you know it's good to know what you have but second of all, if you come across something unexpected or unknown in your garden, maybe something you didn't plant it'll help you figure out whether it's something you want to keep in your garden something you WanNa pass along to a friend or something you WanNa, throw on the compost pile so Let's start with having edges because it's such a nice raw and said just which is the genus Karic's right We have a native such as I think in every state first of all and important to know what they are because sometimes I know in my area people say, Oh, what is that grass that is growing in the woodland and it's so pretty and nobody ever knows that I want that in my yard right but it isn't a grass, it's a and it's either character Pennsylvania or or. Appalachia and these are native such as in our area, and they are beautiful and the edges is they just have a blade that has an edge, the outside edges, and then Kinda fooled in the middle and that goes all the way down in the plant. So so she cut in cross section, it would almost triangular. That's right. Yeah. That's right and one of the really nice things to my to my mind because my. House in Pennsylvania is in the woods and what I love about the characters that. So many of them will tolerate some shade whereas in in the ornamental grass category there there are some grasses that will tolerate but most of them, really like full sun. So using a character is a great way to get that shape into your garden. If you've gotTa Shadier spot the native ones, they are beautiful dark green, their drought tolerant. So they are not spreaders like grasses are usually they're mo- grow more in clumped, but once they get established in an area. They are fairly thick and almost look like a very long lawn in shade, and so they're very pretty and then there are those variegated ones or any number of them that make either great single specimen plants in your garden. Or make great ground cover I have carrots ice dance in my garden, and that's a very vigorous grower and as such, it makes a great ground cover and another way to use these characters. Especially, some of the larger ones some of them that are maybe a little bit taller than you might expect ground cover to be is. A great transition plant. It helps link different parts of your garden bed together. So if you've got a MAGENTA flower here in an orange flower here and you don't particularly want them next to each other plant, some carrots in between in in some kind of interesting shape with a curve and and help the the garden, make the transition from one color to another and if you use a variegated variety of. You're going to have that color in your garden all season long because it's not something that you plant for its flowers, you get the color from the foliage itself. So let's talk a little bit about Russia's when we have both. Russia's that are native and Russia's that are not and they are indeed round. They have a blade that comes up oftentimes they have a little flower on the end of that round leaf and we often find Russia's growing in places where the soil is a little bit moist. Although, I will say that in my area of new, England John Fuses is our native rush and I see that kind of popping up willing to take its chances in drier areas as well. So and these are very pretty plants. They are pretty and they have I mean the texture. So interesting. So you mentioned that there round and unlike the. If you caught a blade of a rush. In half and Cross section, you would see that round shape of the stem, some of the taller ones. Open and spreading sort of vase like shapes. So it's a plant that you can see through and appreciate the structure of the plant almost like a living sculpture in your
Episode 87, Tips and Tricks for the Apple Watch; Bandkeeper product review - burst 1
"Welcome back to the MAC minutes podcast episode any seven for Monday. August. Third Tips and tricks for the Apple Watch and Band Keeper Product Review. This is the MAC. Minutes podcast where you will hear about the world of apple and how technology can help work smarter personally and professionally we'll give you the news you can use in minutes not hours. That's why this is the minutes podcast. I'm your host John Scudder from Anchorage Alaska. Let's now go to the show. In this episode, we will give you some tips and tricks to use on your Apple Watch. I'm sure you will find a few of these new even today avid user will also do a review of the band keeper binder which protects your apple watch bands. Let's not waste any time and get started with MEC minutes, tips and tricks for the Apple. Watch. The first one is to turn off always on display. If you're not a fan of the always on display. It can be disabled if you choose to to turn on or off always on display I go to settings on the watch slick display and brightness tap always on feature. Or Off The second tip is to move the clock up fifty nine minutes ahead of time. Some of us are always running behind. This trick will put you ahead of schedule and arrive early in assistance of arriving on time, you can easily set your watch by a few minutes to turn on this feature. Go to settings slick Glock start at plus zero minutes and use the crown to increase or decrease the time moved forward. Number three adjust your quick replies on messages using the messaging APP on the watch can be very beneficial to deliver a quick message. I have multiple quick messages I use when I cannot access my phone an example one I use it as while driving which I don't use my phone and it's an important message and I want to let the call or know that I'm aware of their texts. Here's how to set up some standard responses to edit the message options I visit the Apple Watch application on your iphone. Scroll down to the messages APP select default replies. Scroll down and Select Ed reply and then type out your message and save. On the number four, have your APPs appears list view instead of grid view. I like to have my apps organized, which in grid mode was quite the accomplishment instead of having the APPs icon shown only in the grid view list view list apps and organizers them in an alphabetical order. To apply this feature press, the digital crown next forced touched by gently applying pressure to the watch face in one spot select list view or grid view. Number five quickly send your location using the Apple Watch to quickly send your location to a friend or family member. It's easy using the Apple Watch to use this feature, go to messages on your Apple Watch. Nex select the contact you wish to send your location to. Force touched by gently applying pressure to the watch face. In one. Spot. Then select send location. Number six, unlock your APP watch using your iphone. You, can unlock your Apple Watch whenever you unlock your iphone in one of two ways on your watch open the settings up then pass code and finally turn unlatch with the IPHONE. On Your iphone open the watch up tap my watch than tap pass code, and finally turned on lock with iphone. Number seven, use the flashlight on APP watch. The flashlight on the iphone is much brighter but using the watch flashlight is just enough to light up darkened door lock or nearby objects while preserving your night-vision. Also, you still have your hand free while using it. To turn on the flashlight touch and hold the bottom of the screen swipe up to open control center then tap the flashlight icon. Swipe left to choose a mode steady white light flashing white light or steady red light to turn off the flashlight press the digital crown on the side button or swipe down from the top of the watch face. Number eight use the camera APP on the Apple Watch. If you take shaky photographs or want to position your iphone photo and then take the photo from a distance. You can use the Apple Watch view the iphone camera image and take the photo. You can also use your Apple Watch to set the shutter timer. This gives you time to lower your wrist and raise your eyes when you're in the shot. To take a photo, I opened the camera APP on your Apple Watch. Second position, your iphone to frame the shot using your Apple Watch as a viewfinder. Third to expose exposure tap the key area of the shot in the preview on your Apple Watch. To take the shot tap the shutter button the photo was captured in photos on your iphone, but you can review it on your Apple Watch. Number nine activities with the Apple Watch here's how to change your move goal. Open they activity APP on your Apple. Watch. Go to your rings than firmly press the screen tap to increase or decrease the number of active calories for your daily move goal. When you're done tap update, you can change the move goal but not your exercise or stand goals. And Ten workouts with the Apple Watch check your entire history from the activity APP on the IPHONE I consider this the best tip of the mall opened activity up I phone. TAP The history tab, which is in the lower left corner to see details about your all day activities on the calendar. A dot appears next to the days. It's on the upper right corner of each day that you worked out. And a humorous point leave it to apple put dot there and expect you to know what it's all about. To see more detail Tapa, day to get information about a workout tap the workouts tab then tap the item. You'll get a workout map and a whole page of information including heart rate graph heart rate recovery time distance elevation act of calories, distance pace, and more. So on your work, I'll map there's colors that explain your pace yellow is the average pace. Green is the fastest pace red and orange are the slowest paces. All sections are based on averages for that section in length of time to complete if there are gray dots on the route, this is a weak or nonexistent GPS signal. These dots are where the watches filling in the gaps. Now, it's time to move onto the accessory for the Apple Watch enthusiasts. This is an accessory that anybody who likes APPALACHIA's would love as a gift stores, your bands for your Apple Watch in a secure manner.

Citizen science project is changing the climate conversation
"White Husic is a biology professor at Moravian College in Pennsylvania. She studies how climate change affects forest habitats in the mountains of Appalachia and had been thinking a long time about how to engage people in conversation about climate change and a state that has a long history of fossil fuel use especially in rural areas. Where it's kind of controversial so in two thousand ten US started the eastern Pennsylvania phonology project. She has local residents to submit data about when they saw certain flowers. Blooming trees leaping out and birds returning in the spring. I thought it might be interesting to think about. What are people noticing in their backyards? Perhaps a way to start a conversation. That wasn't politicized right from the beginning. She says the project helped her build relationships with local residents and organizations who now trust her expertise she's been invited to speak to fishing and hunting groups and she says people call up to talk about what they're observing in the region and they contact me to say. Hey I noticed this change. Do you think it's due to that stuff? You work on is almost like this. Don't say climate change but they're talking about it and asking about it which I think is a huge change from just a few years
Freshwater Mussels Are Dying And No One Knows Why
"TALKING FRESHWATER MUSSELS. And the fact that they're dying off. Where should we start so I actually want to take you to South West Virginia right near the border with Tennessee? Mattie put on your waiters done okay because we're about to get into the waters of the clinch river so the clinch river flows at the feet of the southern Appalachian Mountains. The water is cold very clear and that is good news because freshwater mussels live on the bottom of rivers. They're kind of like sorta like the less edible version of their saltwater cousin they don't get the same love but they bury themselves in the sediment and among the rocks on the bottoms of rivers and I went out to find some of these muscles with Jordan Richard a biologist with the US fish and wildlife service who is obsessed with freshwater mussels and it did not take him long waiting out into the water for him to find what he did not want to see how long this is a matter of like. How long does it take until we see something that died very recently won? Shell was just laying there even say it's not buried. That's its footing Jordan. There he'd reached into the water and pulled out that muscle a pheasant shell. That's the species but should be buried in food. Not that's dead and this show is about the size of his palm. It's this beautiful. Golden Brown color But the Muslim side is usually a smooth. Pink is turning Greyish Brown and frayed around Sedgwick's Basically it's rotting in place. I saw that one took a few steps out and by the time I stopped right there at like five expecting not a good way which I'm pretty I'm pretty used to like coming out of your thing and I'm GonNa see just getting completely like bombed with the muscles but it's obsolete lousy you out there finding like dead muscle after dead muscle. Yeah I mean they were everywhere and you heard Jordan say but this is really not what he was expecting. It was not the time of year that they typically see a bunch of mortality You know he was just being nice and taking a reporter but biologists have been going at different sections of the clinch river since it was first noted in two thousand sixteen and in just one section of that river the US Fish and Wildlife Service estimates that the number of pheasant shell muscles that have died is in the hundreds of thousands knee. It sounded like I don't know just hearing his voice on the tape that he was super upset. Yeah I mean he was on the verge of tears when we were talking and then he tried to apologize about later. Which I didn't think was obviously not necessary but it was upset because he's so frustrated by what's happening they don't know what's causing this and there's this kind of feeling of helplessness. This guy is so passionate about freshwater ego systems. It's his entire life. I mean he actually said that he had three fish tanks house one by his bed one by the foot of his bed and one in the living room so yeah very understanding wife. Okay but let's talk a little bit more about why people are trying so hard to save these muscles. They play a really important role in freshwater ecosystems. Right totally so. They don't often get the attention they deserve. Here's someone who knows that all too well. People don't tend to get quite as excited about things that lack burns. Unfortunately that was emily blevins. She's a conservation biologist with Versi Society for Invertebrate Conservation. Which you know besides having a really cool name is a nonprofit that focuses on some of the world's more under loved Chrisny. I'LL SAY AT ONCE. I'LL SAY THOUSAND TIMES INVERTEBRATES. Don't get enough credit. I know I mean I think as vertebrates are a little biased but these muscles do deserve a ton of credit. There are filter feeders so that means that they filter water through them. While they're down they're just chilling on River Bottoms. There's research that shown they can remove pharmaceuticals from the water and pesticides and flame retardants and they remove E. coli from the water. They're like our little water filters exactly so a few of the biologists. I talked to really did say you can think of them. As nature's equivalent to a BRITTA filter cleaning up the water that we drink implant but they all sorts of cool stuff like reducing the size and impacts of dead zones. Those big nasty you know fishing life killing phenomena to keep occurring in the Gulf. They do that by filtering out. Sediment and agricultural runoff They sequester carbon phosphorus heavy metals in their shells. They reduce fecal bacteria from water. And you know like what's not to love about Madonna got it thank God. A single freshwater. Mussel can filter more than fifteen gallons of water in a day and besides that they provide habitat to tons of other species. One biologist described them as like the fresh water equivalent to a coral reef. So these muscles are clearly out here doing a lot of work. We don't have any idea what's causing these die-offs so no I mean we have some hunches but you know Jordan. The biologists set it could be a million different things that is causing this There's a bunch of folks working on this from around. The country. University was constant is doing a lot of work and they've recently identified a virus and bacteria that they say are statistically associated with the dial keywords being you know statistically associated so not enough to say hey dingaling we found it but they're highly suspicious of a pathogenic cause and that is where their research is focused right now. What about the stuff like we? Humans are doing on climate. Change for example. Does that seem to be a contributor at all? Well I mean there's no doubt. The climate change is stressing river ecosystems as it is just about every system everywhere but it does not seem to be the driver of what's going on here as far as scientists can tell But I think it's important to note that there are other human components it sort of brought us to this place as I mentioned freshwater mussels or already on the brink and that is because of human activity fun fact before the Aplastic Freshwater Mussels were actually collected in cultivated by the millions to satisfy a commercial demand for buttons. Their shells were pearly white inside right. Thanks for Buttons Fresh Harman's But even more damaging was just you know the general destruction that was brought along by Human Development. So there was pollution from coal mining in the southern Appalachia Rivers dammed for power streams diverted for agriculture wetlands pay for housing and all of those things have brought freshwater mussels to the point where a mysterious die off can happen and it becomes so crucial to find out why fast because there's so little wiggle room left in the system all right eight. Your bumming me out. What's the plan? So there is a contingency plan all right and there always needs to be a contingency plan But like most contingency plans. It's one that nobody wants to use in this case it's a hatchery or nursery more or less for freshwater mussels one of our living screams So pheasant shells in here. That's the one that really dial so basically this place is like a last line of defense for some of these species they're going to breed them in captivity so at least they're not totally gone from planet earth. Exactly so tim and the other. Biologists are reproducing muscles. Here keeping them safe until they're mature enough to be brought back into the wild they're basically stock and when the recent die off started on the clinch river. They brought a bunch of muscles here from part of the river that wasn't affected And those muscles could not just be used as stock but they could also use a baseline a healthy sample to us as they search for the die-offs 'cause Worst case scenario they have to take some of those muscles and try to repopulate parts of the Clinch River. Where the muscles of Dino are going to stand idly by watching the way we're GonNa do the best we can to help them produce progeny. So of the species isn't going for Jordan Richard. The biologist remitted beginning also is helping with this effort and he says it you know he knows. That muscles aren't as photogenic as a rhinoceros or polar bears but freshwater mussels are crucial to the health of other species. So if they go. We're going to have a lot of problems is not sexy to care about the foundation of Your House and you could renovate your kitchen but he says if that foundation is crumbling and you ignore it by the time you notice a problem because you fall through the floor. It's too late to do anything about it. And then everything else including your fancy. New Kitchen is going to fall through to
Wild Hydrangeas of the World
"Dan Hinkley it's great to have you back on the podcast. Welcome thank you very much Matt. It's great to be back. Well you've already been on the episode before and we've talked a lot about your background but for those that didn't listen or new to hearing your name Tell us a little bit about who you are and what it is you do. Well essentially A glorified gardener. I am the director at Herons Garden in Kingston Washington Nets Garden that I started in nineteen eighty seven with my partner Rubber Jones. I currently have a personal garden in India. Nola just twelve miles away from Heron's book called win cliff. Both of those gardens are open to the public. If you should ever find yourself in the areas of the we encourage people to come to walk around and and then I do a little writing. Delo speaking some design consultation so a lot of a lot of fingers in different pots but all in all plants in on all the blast. Ya Fantastically charmed existence for any plant lover but You Know People WanNa know more about your background in You're working plant exploration. They can listen to the previous episode. After that was recorded we talked a little bit about maybe diving into more detail into some of your favorite groups and we both agreed that the hydrangea. We're going to be the topic of discussion and I'm really excited to pick your brain about this. This group of plants today great. I mean it's one that I have had an infatuation with ever since I've been a kid and of course it's another one of those wonders of the plant world at once. You get to know a little you you realize how little you know and so you know it's unfolding but ever so entertaining both four in a plant explorer but also for a gardener at the such great application to gardens of North America and in Europe. Weather not necessarily native to write. And this idea that the more you look the more you realize how little you know about this group I mean. This exemplifies my entire experience Since we talked about doing this episode of growing up my experience with hydro was largely just a couple of pom pom varieties and then a little bit later on meeting. At least one or two are native species in the wild in southern Appalachia but I had no idea the breadth of what this genus in this family overall has presented the world. It's been very successful in north and south and east and West and just like you had a hydrangea. Nekia Lada outside our back door in northern Michigan. That's like zone. Three B thing. Some managed to survive in blonde some every year. And then we also had hydrangea lessons. Annabel and everybody my age at least to live on the east coast new or knows Annabel because it was such a mainstay a mop head. Arborescence wanted a heartiest hydrogen. Just so you know. That's that's where my introduction came as well but as I started traveling I was dumbfounded. By how many niches they have occupied. How successful the genus. The family as Ben as a whole and also at least in the Pacific northwest. How many of those can be brought into cultivation in? Add a great deal to the garden not only by flower but with foliage as well. Yeah and so thinking broadly about this. I was actually new to the idea. That hydrangea had. Its own family. I kind of limited with CAPRA fully. Acc so sort of a broad spectrum treatment for taxonomy sake here. What's going on with this group Obviously is a lot more refined but it was even a decade ago when I first started looking at these. You'd oftentimes find Hydrangea For Gay she was one of those bags of everything that didn't know where they belong. They put it in the sanctuary. Casey so It has now been refined obvious. Leads through a lot of different means available to taxonomic. It is a family to its own. Hydrogen Jasey and they have Would quickly dissect this. There's two sub families in hydrogen JC Eighty and James Yoy D. And then within the sub family HYDRANGEA LADY. They have made two tribes. Which are the hydrogen d. e. In Philadelphia? So it really for the sake of time in one hour fairly gonNA scratch the surface with just hydrology e which is where the the breadth of ornament event is but the the other tribe in the in the hand I drank. Philadelphia's obviously has Philadelphia has dude see as a tremendous number of other plants that we are familiar with in our garden so they're lumped rate in with hydrogen JC. Now that's awesome. Yeah then there's you know it's one of those things where again I looked deeper and realized I recognized a lot of those those. I guess that makes sense that they're related but again for the sake of time. The hydrangea you're going to be our focus specifically the genius hydrangea and roughly speaking. I mean we're we're still working and I'm sure things will change In the years or decades to come but roughly speaking how many species are within the genus. Hydrangea There's you know it changes. Because obviously lumper's lumper's splitters continually added but it ranges around sixty about sixty species. But you know they're still discovering new species and in particular in northern parts of South America just three years ago they identified. I think it was fourteen. Fourteen or fifteen new species of climbing Evergreen hydrangea from the mountains of northern Ecuador and Peru Bolivia Colombia in there. So you know. It's still a lot to be learned about true. Hydrangea as out there. They certainly have not all been discovered yet. Another big realization for me in trying to get familiar with this genus was this diversity of life-form you mentioned climbing and I'm sure. Plenty of gardeners will recognize climbing varieties of her Georgia. In of course the obvious shrubbery ones. I mean this is a really cool thing that that seems. Like hydrangea has found different ways. To make a living as a woody plant depending on where you're you're looking for them yet no Absolutely Obviously most people in North America will be familiar with hydrogen novela which is an Asian species. That's the hardest most dependable deciduous flowering plant for Shade Climbing Planet. I should say ourself clinging plant for shade in climates But new go south on occasion in Asia's while you find climbing evergreen species of hydrogen in I would say ninety nine point nine percent gardeners even in the Pacific northwest where we can grow. So many of these are aware of the fact that there are climbing evergreen branches at provide grateful during the summertime and wintertime and then beautiful flowers. That are dead ringers. For what we in our minds think of is a hydrant right on and in thinking about sort of diversity at least here in North America You know sort of West East divide always stands out especially when it comes to gardening You're located on the West Coast as you mentioned what you have over there or is this something that at least in. North America is largely assigned to east of the Mississippi and Sorta down south from there. So like in a broad sense mad here. I'm I'm sitting nine Sonny Bloch this morning a rare sunny day in the puget sound area and right off the block that I live on the two hundred foot bluff repeat Assam. We have native stands of our native Philadelphia's Philadelphia's Louis named after obviously Lewis and Clark fame and in the broad sense that is indeed in the hydrant JC. So I can't discount the those plants. If you to California now you can find Wesleyan Carpentaria and of course James Lia and a few other genera mostly not all that ornamental so. I can't say that west of the Mississippi is deposited in hydrogen JC but Zero through hike packages zero. So we have to get east of the Mississippi before we run into the only two representatives of the genus in North America. And you. You've already made not worth one of those are Bresson's which is very widespread from New York. Even Southern Quebec all the way down into Florida and the Gulf states and has variations of geographical variations within. But just a darn good dependable plant for gardeners and then Hydrangea Chrissa fully. Which is more? Gulf state oriented a beautiful very distinctive.

"That's really the point. We try to make a lot. Is that some of it. Some of the straight literature the non genre literature is my favorite parts. Dolores Claiborne is probably my favorite Stephen King. Peace and that's just dot is just as literature as it gets. I don't know how else to read that in high school. Okay so are the very one who turned me onto the dark tower and maybe read the gunslinger. Don't lie and then he broke my heart I WanNa lay it out for you. Laid on my Fav- my favorite Stephen King stories are I was a huge gunslinger fan. I was very close to having the gun creed tattooed on my body or a set of cross pistols and roses. But then I realized I'd be literally getting a gun behind that. Yes I love the dark tower through wizard in class. Wolves of the Calla was a fine short story. That was like delong and everything else is garbage Song of Susannah did not need to exist. It could have replaced I don't know that entire section in the dark tower whether wandering around tanning hides in the snow or any section in which King wrote himself into the story but I also understand he was he had. He had a pain pill addiction at the time he had tremendous trump's guy here by the Van. He was convinced he was convinced. He wasn't gonNA live to finish anything and so he rapid fire shadow those last three books and in the process totally last two for me. Last season game of thrones most of the series for me. It's so interesting that Your view of Stephen King is within the dark tower. You know because We get that a lot. We get that response a lot but were you know thirty. Six thirty seven episodes in and worse still fifty episodes away from even touching the dark tower. Oh Yeah No. He's a prolific and I didn't read pass on us. His Anna actually speaking of speaking of that though of his his accident and everything have you read. Do McKee. Of course. Yeah say. That's Yeah Oh God like I. I really think that he addresses that. So well now in that book I really liked it for a while. He kinda faltered a little bit but when he was sort of toying with retirement and everything like that that he now his later work. I very much appreciate I enjoy. I enjoy the outsider. Oh yeah that was good. That was good. Listen to well okay. It was I've doctor sleep. Not so much I liked. I liked the first half of the outsider when he was writing true. A true crime feeling thing is different. It felt fresh. It felt like a masterful hands doing a genre that needed it when we slipped into it part six point zero. It's a shape. Shifter that feeds on pain. Like you rent you've written this. I will even my favorite king books like I love Shawshank. Everything in different seasons is amazing. Oh God the long walk is amazing. Green Mile in Chapter Book format. Did you catch the Stephen King in an episode title? We did go ahead. Yeah delivered green miles our next episode night remember when Green Miles initially published. They did this gimmick quoted at actual Syria last novel and it was great. It was so fun. Family Charles Goddamn Dickens. Yup and I would. I would drive to the to the supermarket. Right around the corner from the from the Public housing complex. I was living in with my mom at the time We were in College College. And and and the and the bad death of Ed Rendell was there and when I when I started talking about I when I decided I was going to write about any on. Amanda porkers girls a rough death and a worst resurrection and just kind of Shitty Green. I was like it's the bad death and resurrection but I I love King. He can't into story to save his life and I think that's because he has issues with closure he gives away right. The character skaff. Yep He has issues of letting go of things a couple of good exceptions but yeah. I think it's important to note if you're GONNA study a mass market paperback fiction author and someone who's as prolific as Stephen King re spend a lot of time in our you know off writing section deconstructing. The parts don't work in the stuff that's bad. I think it's hard to be a true fan or a really solid fan. If you can't point out these really obvious flaws in the hole in the bibliography and I I hope. I hope he lives another decade. Because I as an English teacher I tell people I'm on the reason Shakespeare and I haven't been my one of my concentrations is Shakespeare and metaphysical poetry so like Shakespeare. They're one of the one of the reasons. His work has sustained and justice. Faint can fight me about. This is that it's the best stuff that's ever been written. It is the type of all the things. Secondly it's because so many fucking copies were made and printed and it was one of them and the folios of the most of the most prolifically produced books so in two hundred years when we're all dead and they're looking at who were the prolific authors of the twentieth and Twenty First Century King is GonNA stand out sheerly on volume before they even get to the quality of his work. And just because of the Cultural Cachet. He has and hold them in. His name is literally synonymous with horror and on top of that Outside of himself the adaptations of his work are a beast that has grown beyond the man could ever be and I will say this and we and you can. I don't know how you feel about it. I thought the last season of Castlerock was absolutely brilliant. I haven't watched it yet. So you need to be silent. Okay well look. Here's the thing my friend. Sarah and I were watching it together. Her Work Scott and crazy so we had a bit so we haven't seen season two yet. But I promised I will not watch it by myself so we need to get together when we can image it but could Hash has children well without any content. Spoilers it is so ridiculously good. And that's what I've heard. I heard it's amazing. The way I describe it is. It's like someone took misery. Salems lot in a book he never wrote laid them all super completely apart laid out all the parts and built something new out of it. That did a familiar trick at the end. You should write synopsis for Hulu. They're not nearly as good and I'm excited. It's not going to be as good as season. Two of old Gods Appalachia. But it's you know it's super good a family on twitter.

"Actually both they both went to college. They went to you. Click Valley College when it was Clinch Valley. College wise. After Stephen I graduated and they are kind of were kind of some of the very few liberal parents in our area. So all of this for me is just this sort of outside observation other than you know my family's Catholic so there's that but they're not baptists like everybody else okay. You parents aren't real Catholic or not. Okay my friend. Johnny calls it half ass Catholic. That's what my that's my family's there half ass Catholic but you know I definitely you know. I went to church with my friends if I sent the night with them. On the weekends I went to church with because that was important to his dad. It was important to his dad. Okay we dated for a while when we were young. And we'VE BEEN FRIENDS WAY LONGER. And so yeah. It was important to his dad's so believe me I went but but yeah I see this out precise perspective and and mostly you know People Steve. Church always super nice to me but I there were kids. It's goal who you know. I had these weird fucking views from my parents who weren't just liberals okay. They were social workers. These are people who basically dedicated their lives to okay. We're GONNA be broke because we want to do the right thing and Cam. Kim's dad was a Vietnam essentially a Vietnam War through like was involved in firebase ripcord incident which was like an incredibly hard daddy thing that happened. But it's completely overshadowed in history because it took place the same day as the Cambodian invasion. He was there in his nineteenth birthday. He wrote a book about a Chip Collins. Right the vote and but he's he's and Myemma one of my friend's husband's read it and was like dude. I don't know if you know be. Your Dad was a hero and I'm and I didn't 'cause he never talked about it. So yeah he was in Vietnam and he was always very critical of the government and in particular. Its treatment of veterans And he knew that they there was not good reason for us to be there. In addition to that you know messing with his head like his family was real abusive and everything grown up his Stepdad was and so he came back home and he went to college and went to become a social worker because he wanted help people he wanted to help other kids. Out of those situations like my. My parents are like these real good people who dedicated their lives to helping other people in this real weird hippie way and so I go to school and I've been taught by my family that the separation of church in State is a good thing and you should respect other people's religious beliefs and things like that and my peers had not learned the same things at home so it was it. Got Real Weird. Sometimes that's a lot of where that that story comes from is just kind of how things can shake out religiously. In small towns that's totally fascinating. And how do you guys feel now? This story that you're telling this thing that you're weaving. Everyone is exploding. What does that feel like? It's so scary. It's it's incredibly terrifying. We literally thought like maybe a couple of hundred people would dig this and the people who thought we were devil worshippers when we were kids would definitely be satisfied with us. Being torched personnel I literally I have some friends in who are kind of like Appalachian academics expected to be shouted down or told that you know we know how you feel about Appalachia. Because I'm I'm brutally honest There's a lot about those mountains. I loathe and there's a lot of damage and a lot of trauma that happened to me in those hills but there are also part of what I am and they're also home so for me this thing is. I love letter a murder confession in the suicide. God Yeah it's it's such a complicated feeling going how which I rarely do. I don't have much reason to anymore. You got your people are all gone away. Mom moved back to Tennessee. My folks are still there. My Mom and dad have been divorced since ninety three and my sister and her two boys and her husband are still. There actually lived in the town of Appalachia Virginia for the last two or three years that I lived there when I moved back in with my mom to go back to school to become a teacher but it's scary because one of the first things. I don't know if I told you this camp one of the first people to reach out to me when just the prologue was out which the prologue this terrifying response of like before we ever dropped. A full episode are patriotic at two hundred dollars for eight minutes for eight minutes of material and I'm not GonNa talk about him out on the Patriots now. We're actually getting really self conscious about that until you're gonNA hide it soon. I have seen it. It's part of what I asked this question. It's it's remarkable. It's remarkable achievement. It's absurd is yeah so we and the first person in the first of all to reach out to me is. I get this friend request from our my my churches pastor's daughter and he was pastor at one point in time. I want to out anybody here And I was like okay and waiting for and waiting for the praying for you. Waiting for the you know Why are you into the Colt? We thought you turns out like she and her husband who were both ministers are now like not really see progression anymore are open to different. Pantheon's maybe cool people but I haven't heard from them since that conversation but I can't express the moment of fear when I saw someone from our church and I'm not ashamed of the show at all. I make no apologies. I did go back. The original the original first episode of Barlow had a lot of different first names. That where people from my dad's church and they weren't like digs at those people. They were just very appalachia names and I went back and changed a lot of those just because it felt more respectful and in general. Let me tell you we. We like scour family trees for like back in the day period names and that's where a lot of our show thanks go. Yeah can't can't give rich get DUI from everybody's related to a Dui all right before for example is in terms of research which we do try to use our dramaturge for good Sarah Avery's name was Sarah when I started the show. I went with the Most Eastern Kentucky name I can think of. That girl's name was crystal and we found out it wasn't period. It wasn't a period name. It wasn't popular until the late forties early fifties so Sarah and Biblical names however steeped in it Steve. Much like you guys have your crazy. New England like thou shalt not commit adultery. Pulsipher names we have our Eugeniusz and our and our glory ends Glory and by the way. If you're listening to build Mama coffin which I imagine we might talk about later My Mom's best friend growing up was her first cousin. Glory gene which if you pronounce that properly in dollar is gorging. Glory Glory Glory or any or glory. Glory would come out Yes so the names. The names came from a lot of that and It's been crazy to see. I'll say this. The Patriarch is more than my. My monthly teachers paycheck. Now Shore. It has to be a yeah. Yeah IT'S INSANE. But as people supporting us and people from all over and one of the best compliments we've ever gotten Is was super early on one of the first apple. Podcast reviews we got was It is so nice to hear my accent being used to make art. That sounds intelligent. Why isn't lulls? Feel that so much too because I I've had conversations with with my boyfriend and also with my husband because we all like podcasts. About how few southern podcasts? There are that aren't that aren't like super serious. Yeah there's so few where you hear someone talk with your own accent and it's always just like. Oh Wow yeah and I understand. We're leading into it like I said if you're if you're hearing my voice right now you're when we talked to our our our agent issue for the first time. He was really surprised. You know that I didn't answer the phone like Harry family. Y'All doing you don't put on. My accent is just like this example. Hold on this is my neutral teaching voice. When I'm teaching an actor and working in Nashville as a storyteller voice actor or anything else. I can neutralize now. I know if you're not from the south or from Appalachia you're hearing you're still hearing an accident in my voice but it's very charming and I sound very sweet. We all do this. You learn when you're from where we are and the thing is a lot of times people who love you care about you and know that you're intelligent sometimes to tell you know now you know it's fine and no nobody judges you but they're wrong. The reason that we do this is because we have been judged and we have been shamed and may feel small and so we definitely you know smooth over that accent but when we're talking to local people we can turn it back on on a dime and a lot of times when you're with your family or particularly if you're talking to older people. I was at an sea this past weekend and ended up sitting. Sca Sad for creative anachronism historical reenactment. Not lopping look it up but ended up at a table that was. I was on the coast of Virginia which is very different out there. It's not APPALACHIA. It's tidewater the tidewater accent is very different but Similar talking to this lady and I was somebody asked about somebody there knew about the show was asking me about it. And she's like so now. I'm from APPALACHIA FROM WEST. Virginia and I'm like I'm what county and she's like you didn't put a T- in that word so I know you're for real and I'm like well what county talk was. Let's talk about it and we just about into that conversation. I sounded more like this. And this is. This is me relaxed. Now have you get about to double up as in my family and the cadence starts to slow down a little bit because I need. I need you to lean in if you WANNA listen and that rhythm the number yeah the number I get very flattering emails from people who apparently go to sleep to my voice and have horrific. I had someone messes me on facebook and told me if I ever get really horrible news in my life. I want you to be the one to tell us I'm sorry. Hr has decided that we wish you the best in your future. And that's crazy. All we get for comments on our voices that we are If nothing else the biggest sounding podcast out. That's good excellent. Excellent comment Brian once a week. So yeah isn't it great and speaking of I really need to start listening to your podcast immediately. There's another podcast. Stephen King podcasts. That I listen to Which is pretty good. But I'm such a huge king fan that I'm like. Oh you've another Stephen King podcasts. And there's no way it's as gay as ours has much single. Oh God I mean I'm sold I am so I am such an Asshole. Because so many podcasts have been super complementary and every tweeted us and I had them all bookmarked on spotify on an stitcher. Because I'm a podcast caveman. Still cleaned stitcher a little bit And then when I get in the car I'm like I just want to listen to the new. Peter Klein's audiobook era so much material. How could you ever get through it all also like if you don't have a deep personal relationship with both Stephen King and Carol Burnett? Our shows a little bit. Niche? So I'm not. I am zero ways offended although I would like to know what your relationships of Stephen King are. Oh Jesus I am like oh you. You want to claim that Stephen King is he. He's just John or I will you that some of the best writing in literature. Filthy Greek we get get your. We're going we're going right now. I will fight you over this. I love seeing case so much and I will I will. I will die on that hill. No no no no he. Is We use one of our greatest riders..

"My Dad is a diesel mechanic. They rented a shop down in an Stevens across twenty-three like where would go to pound cam. Yeah they rented a shop down there when I was a kid one and it's just a warehouse to be. Shell building with sliding doors for them to do equipment. Repair in one of those was a helipad because at one point the highest concentration of helicopter owners private helicopter owners was in South Western Virginia. Because all the coal mining people who'd sold their land bought helicopters to go from their house to the minds to the trip to the to the places they were doing mountaintop removal and with all that money just slipped away all that economic prosperity. We were promised to slipped away and it was like every time. Appalachia almost get somewhere to get something it just gets taken away and then you look at the opioid crisis and you look at poverty and you look at cancer rates as another article. I knew links if you WANNA post them about how cancer rates have dropped everywhere in the US except Appalachia. How on the road? I grew up on the cancer rate specifically not Hodgkin's lymphoma among women in the path of these radio towers that nobody really knows what they do. I'm at what is it about Appalachia that it's okay to put this shit here. And then I started the fantasy brains started kicking in local. What they're something that's not just keeping other people out but what if it's keeping us here for its own use and and then one day. I looked out. I just happened to be thinking about coal mining and I'm and I was when I was a slam poet at one point in time and I wanted to show. I live in Asheville you're contractually obligated to grow a beard ONA Subaru or at least three dogs or three cats NBA performance poet or storyteller for at least a year before they give you your permanent residency. So I was look I wanted to use the words anthracite and but by toomas and I wasn't sure I knew one was northern Appalachia and one was southern so I googled it and got a picture of the map of the co- feels and I'm like that is a shadow of something huge sleeping beneath those mountains. And then then I started pondering and I'm GONNA give it ahead of the CAM. We're GONNA I'M GONNA hand off about the church here in just a second. I started thinking about what Cole is. Cole is compressed carbon it is literally compressed life it is life and death pressed into a tangible rock like form it is also time is it is literally life death and time and we did it from the earth and we burn it for light and warmth it. That's not a frequent fantasy novel. Waiting to happen I just got chills. And then there's a Song Daryll. Scott Brad Paisley made it famous on the show. Justified called You'll never leave Harlan alive Which I've I've posted it several times and it has a line you spend your life just trying to get away and you spend your time digging coal from the bottom of your grave. So what if there was an industry that Doug this precious resource and by default knew that the process of removing it would remove life from the people who did it and yet they were the only option to feed their families and just created this vicious essentially the cycle of of just like of Zip built in these built in machines that are flesh and blood and and and just like there has to be something that makes this happen and then Then I just started kind of working with the ideas when we got to the other big factor which will be rearing its head in the stories enough in religion. Cam had been out dealing with life and came back to writing at invited invited cam to write a story and I've been crafting all this stuff and thrown some stuff out and kept some stuff and ask him for advice and always gives me great feedback and tells me when I'm full of Shit and I'm like well I don't know what's left. I've done this story about a little girl in the town and this and and we had talked about doing about focusing different episodes on different basically analogs to different historical disasters right. That's right because you were going. You were going to run Hurricane Creek. Yeah I was gonNA write a whole another one but then I read what you wrote and I was like just thinking about it and mullion over and Iras like now now now let me let me have the church right because if you read the description of Barlow talks about. It's a bag schoolhouse. A church a bank a dry goods store and a collection of the church. What the fuck are you talking about? It's a building is just it's it's stage dressing. And then she pointed out what where where. Where would everybody go when this happened? Everybody and what's the heart of the town church and then who would also be responsible for burying the bodies have these guys coming back to live and burning downtown and honesty. I hadn't I had is. This was such an idea that I would. I would ever really launch. When Cam said that I'm like okay and that kind of like began our process of like. Oh this person died. Let's talk about that that I can't really tell you could see the first season grew as we were riding yet. We thought it'd be a few episodes clued seven kids. We Must Kill Them All. Kill Them. They must hall died. Terrible deaths and for me any messer. Messer was just based on this Sunday school teacher whose name. I won't say because my cousin might be listening to this. Podcast Dave The Sunday school teacher we had when we were little and she was a wonderful woman and I hope she's well but was one of the most boring bland individuals ever and was complete background fodder and mess as a real common name upward in the area. My mom from and I'm anti Massar that's about as factors branches. You get back branches going to have its own analog so help me God it's a it's a branch of the of the guest river. I Guess Incense Anyway. Nobody and then I realized I'm like well. Holy crap she gets turned into a thing How the Hell did that happen? And Her story and Caroline story were stories. I initially didn't mean to tell until I found each of them standing on my desk screaming at me one night that nope. You're not going to get to write this next part about about Sarah Avery until you write about us and the stories about women I mean we got dudes. Don't get me wrong. But women are the heart of Appalachia. Momma did more than try. I would love for everyone to just take a moment in check their garage bands make. Everything's running because if I didn't get all that I'm going to leave society KNOB got it. We're good excellent dear. Jesus Cam what's your what's your take. How well not to be a huge downer? Okay so for one thing Stephen. I have tossed around ideas for a project to work on there for years decades. We've known each other since the mid ninety s breath were very long-term. There's just I shall older. Our friendship is older than yeah. I mean we've tossed around various ideas over the back and forth from time to time for years but this is just really the first thing that stuck in a for me personally like I said not to be Downer but So my husband died in two thousand eighteen and so I was really kind of move in this place where I was at least since we worked together. We had a business We worked together day. We spent practically twenty four hours a day together and so it was like a major change in my life and I was really at least sins having a lot of trouble concentrating on things and like Winston. You've started talking to me about this story. It took me a long time to actually write something because I got a lot of focus issues. Now that I didn't have before thanks trauma and also I written in anything creative since Grad School in about two thousand one which just about beat all creativity out of me. I was so tired of writing things because I spent you know two years writing things that were kinda boring. I honestly didn't think I'd ever get it back which was sad because you know that was my childhood dream. And she's real frigging good. Hush Ed's so you know Steve. Start talking about this and I actually had ideas and so you know. Beat my brain into submission in got some things down on not paper but you know pixels And he actually liked it so and we both just kind of kept riffing on things he now. I started out with this one real simple story. About how will the whole church corrupted by these creatures and it just grew from there and yeah I create you know these character who cletus is very flawed. He's very very flawed but I think most people can really connect with him you know. Why did what he did he? It doesn't excuse it but I mean I personally was. Us sit there and look at it. And I'm like I can't say I'd do any different. If I were in his position. What do you do for your family? Look do you do? And I've always thought too long. I've ever really said this to you. I love the story ARC and But cletus is so much of every older man. We grew up with APPALACHIA. Oh absolutely who the mountains. Be it through coal or the mechanic in orbit through whatever your job is this you you get the shit kicked out of you by work. But you do it for the sake of your family. Until it's time to lay down and die grading match and that's the obligation the obligation you take as an Appalachian man sometimes is you provide and yet it's going to suck and it's going to hurt and it might kill you but that's what she signed up for and the moment that when that you wrote that struck me. The most is when they tell us he can't go back to work at. My Dad retired after forty years of being a diesel mechanic EPA a couple years back and I literally thought like we need to put him on on self harm. Walk God yeah I can only imagine John. Elliot's grandkids that I didn't have been and and that's that's his mission. You know but like he literally worked until his joints were going septic. He almost died from a staph infection in his in his joints of years ago. It's that's what these what these mountains do. These are one of the first of the show. It's you know all the mother in the mountains ask for is that you die slowly without complaint. And she'll provide everything else and that was clearly. Yeah it wasn't and I can't say I wasn't thinking of your dad because you know one of the very first things you ever told me about. Your Dad was how he didn't electrocuted and nearly died and came back and learn to you know. My Dad was electrocuted. Loss fingers. Learn to use them and be diesel mechanic again and it's like wow and I've always been so impressed by that you know it's like holy crap. My my dad was electrocuted when I was four months old and he is on record is one of the first successful chest two legs skin graphs At the University of Kentucky's hospital he lost two fingers on his on his Dominant hand and rehabbed never took a day of disability and came back to be like a two-time mechanic of the year. Because the dude is insane. And you don't lay down and ask You were saying about cleese. No no no I know believe me. I want to hear what you have to say.

It recently passed a law doubling down subsidies for power plants. Ohio public radio's Andy Challe reports the new law adds hundreds of millions of dollars in subsidies for coal and while it does add twenty million dollars for existing solar farms it rolls rolls back renewable energy requirements and even scraps the energy efficiency program it also does out one hundred fifty million dollars in subsidies to keep open open to nuclear plants that had been scheduled to close opposition to the legislation formed some strange partnerships natural gas companies.

A the ethos that you should have Dokic to be wrong. This number payroll when you have the most liquid market place in the world, which I'll get to in the in in in in terms of the next question when you do have the most liquid market place in the world. It simply means that if you are wrong and a trade is not working out. We can release that trade get our and start again practically instantaneously in a marketplace. That relies on nanoseconds you best believe we better have all finger ready to execute trades. What they go wrong. So she's the risk side of it. So it not as most people believe, Nick. Trading forex. I think it's being put out by a loss of fake news sound like, please. Person. But as being put out that. Bouma busting forex in foreign exchanging currency trading. You're either gonna make it absolutely mountain or you're gonna lose a lot. Well, that's not the case. Now, certainly not not all trading strategy capex that leads me very nicely to the next question. I recruited not just gonna quit trading getting in and out of the marketplace. And as I said, we're the world's lodge. Five point five Tribune daily. We should automatically answer anybody's question when it comes to liquidate because when you go five point five trillion flowing through any marketplace, it becomes you know, is liquid water. Also Megyn liquidity me when you get out. You can also take your money, you have total control of your accounts. I trade the account for you. But it's a segregated account in your name. You have control of when you want your money back how you can set up a dividend account. If you want to pay monthly many, many, many many kind of shoes that fit in the wolves of foreign exchange. People have different needs some people in for short-term gain. Some people looking as you said earlier, nothing in the first segment people concert to trade forex for a long time for years and years and years, and I have everything in between. Now, the next question, I probably need more than anything when it comes to trading foreign exchange. My firm, particularly you can't. That sounds great. Love to do it. And I wanna I wanna take on. I've always wondered how leverage can make me money and how foreign exchange, and I see the major institutions everybody's making money from. I my piece of the pie. What do you get paid? What do you make out of this? Adam. What is you get factual? I'm only. I'm proud of this particular side, my business most brokerage firms if not all make charge a commission entering the market exiting the market holding your positions overnight over a week. Oddities? We trophies even when you want to Appalachia town. I mean, it goes on the show. Some firms have actually looked at the table of fees. And he's just it's like it's like it's like. To to to the buffet. As a nonstop. Okay. Completely non stop where you can't affects one single Schanche fish. I charge you ten percents of your net profit. That's it managing your account, which every means if I don't make the money. We don't make money plain and simple. I don't charge you entry exit. I don't charge you. If you win you lose. I felt like an endless circle I only make money when my clients made money. So when I can say when you hear maybe a commercial web brokerage firms investment banks, we have our clients best interests at heart. I have a little chuckle to myself because that's not exactly true because you could charge money, even when you lose. Then you don't have your clients best interests where you can't fix charge. A flat. Ten percent performance. Charges. No hidden fees. Extra still. Bloomberg in out exit entrance or anything. Ten percent Plotnik. I'm not saying that makes us stand head and shoulders above the rest, and we believe. No, I'll rephrase that we know that as a brokerage firm. Clients. I need to make money inherently. I'm a greedy person because I'm a trader. My job, but I also dealing relationships. I have to deal with different people in different levels. I want to foreign exchange and I have to deal with the marketplace. Even on non volatile takes. But wait, again, let me be clear. I let me be crystal clear. Brexit change everything I'm trying to I'm trying to think of a good analogy in. I'm trying to think of Vegas. When busty Siegel rolled into town. What he did? He changed the landscape forever. It is changing the political the economic social economic the geopolitical landscape for ever, and he's not just a of the punk Nick not just over in the UK and Europe you people in America after catching everybody this is a game changer when you put a game changer when you put that kind of all kind of liquidity perfect explosion together with foreign exchange and you after power leopards the perfect equation. It's like been the golden ratio, you know. Everything you could ask for an investment does not mean to say that again, I could not talk about risk. No I will address race. I will talk risk free to embrace the risk of his marketplace. Marketplace on Friday moved to. I was just that was just in the space of an hour. Dollars ten thousand dollars. Invested. I use. Because it's it's a round number base is what I would have to call the average account opening ten thousand dollar investment leverage issue, two hundred thousand of a currency, and let me be clear about about a currency is a currency tearing there is no such thing in foreign exchange as trading a single, courage. Do get people asking me one. The question is can I trade the dog? I think going to be strong over the next six months because we're gonna negotiate with China and trade tariffs or nothing. China's economy slowing down is increasing. And we've got some good economic numbers. I wanna trade the dollar. He can't just frayed the Dolan. You could trade the dollar. The pound the she's the one which the Chinese currency, the euro Bush's the Canadian dollar, so we have to look at where we believe the dollar strengthens plow all where we believe the pound's weakness will play out. So that's how we train, but many people sent me asked me, you know, if if I get into this, you know, how quickly can I get up, but how quickly can I get my money and don't have to worry about the show. That's all. That's my job. I've never show if you could only see my destiny, I think people's eyes pop out had if I think I could probably yeah. I would rival any Nassar control sense of.

It's all like somebody call. I'm not the only person I have the trade sports. But you're right. If you go and break the will to force yourself. I can promise you things you might do. Well, but it'll be dumb. Look, isn't it? I mean, it'll be dumb luck. You will not know what you do.
