Atheist Experience with Matt Dillahunty & Shannon Q: Nephilim
"Earl in New York. If you click a button is there early, new. York has proof of the Netflix Mural Shaniqua and matt. How're you? How are you doing well? Happy Father's Day to you that I'm not a father. I, am a mother or so. I've been told many many many many. Many Times. General but. Yeah so I believe I have information in popular evidence of Methuselah Aka giants as about in the Bible. Okay? What is your evidence now? Don't get triggered now. Don't get triggered that because it does have a lot of a fight, Bible references. that. Bible references don't trigger me, but I'm interested. If Bible references are so also earn evidence like a well I. mean that's sort of confusing me. Because like in my mind, the way I see it is no somebody wrote a letter back in the day and has the name. Well different from the Bible that has like no real Arthur's or you know energy. Don't know who will each book. We only know based on like sort of documentaries conspiracies in so on and so forth. That's confusing to me. Still getting to wear it might be evidence, or are you saying that if something was written down by someone at some point in time that it must be evidence well, not that it must be, but I'd say close to it in my in my perspective, but you know it doesn't work. Everybody understand that. It'd be a form of evidence, but it's not I suppose at anyway. Sorry, go ahead, man! In well to get to my evidence. I have actually photographed I'm looking at right now. I'm dying skills and giant gold flake. They're not like human proportions. They look like human skulls and human bones, and it's on, but right now based on the texts here based on information that explains certain things it says you know these are giants funds so IBM. And everything, but I have it all in front of me and I can okay. I'M GONNA. I'm GONNA interrupt you for one second because I think that we're going to go down a rabbit trail. All might come down to this. It sounds to me like you saw something on the Internet that looks like or is presenting you information that suggesting that these. Skulls and you just you believed it because it confirms something that's in the Bible, and you already want to believe what's in the Bible so that Dutt though that may qualify some form of evidence. That's certainly not enough evidence to convince anybody that's reasonable and confused as to. Why just looking at something that you saw on the Internet would be enough evidence to convince you read. So wondering which pictures you're actually looking at because some of the pictures that have reported been skeletons are known exposed hoaxes right so without knowing which one you're looking at question is then by any chance that could send you this information. You look over your so sure you can send email with links to TV at atheist. Hyphen community DOT ORG and I'll make sure that I forwarded to channel that. Once I can you repeat that again? TV TV at Atheist Hyphen Community Dot org, or you could google giant skeleton hoax and see if your picture appears amongst the ones that are known host hoaxes. Yeah, because if you don't have any other evidence to cooperate what you're looking at, it's it's. It's disheartening to me, dot. You would believe what you're looking at. When there's so much contrary evidence like if if that was really valid evidence and not one of these hoaxes that are used to convince impressionable people than you would see, it would be prominent like you would. You would see it would pervade archaeological an appeal to logical papers. There'd be papers written on it so. I would ask. This would be national geographic or Today Scholarly professors at university etc, and it wouldn't be just click bait photo on the Internet because this would fundamentally change. Huge things that we understand about our history, and so if if these were things were real, and the evidence was forum, it wouldn't just be on the conspiracy theorists, website or through some Google search this. Conspiracy Theorists website. To. See It on anywhere other than experience, conspiracy, websites or websites exposing those conspiracy theories. Because because was terribly. This is necessarily a conspiracy theory topic. Because if in fact, there were good photographic evidence to show that there were there used to be giants. Their entire scientific community is conspiring to keep that evidence from coming to light in any responsible fashion. That's why it fits into conspiracy. And, what? What did you do to validate it all? That would be my question aside from seeing it and being compelled by just onsite. What did you do to to confirm the validity of what you were looking at aside from believing it because it comports with a daddy much confirmative. Ability of it because I don't really know how. I don't want. So! You found something on the Internet you didn't do anything to come. I didn't actually find it. into me. You're set you something on the Internet. You didn't bother to do any research at all. You just call us to your homework for you. I guess yeah. You're on well. I can't give input on something I haven't seen. And while I'm happy to let you email us It would be nice and I'll say this to other people to measure beating you up. It'd be nice if some of you guys. Did your own homework just a little bit like spent four five seconds you because. If you have an image, you can do a Google image search and find out where else that's been reported. Maybe you find a news article about it because when you send it to me, that's what I'm GonNa. Do and my question is. Why should I spend all this time doing work that you could do just so you don't have to. Yeah and earl before we let you go I. Earl Earl. Interrupt, you for a second because I think this is an important port and I'm sorry to interrupt. You seem like you seem like a nice gentleman This is something that I say all the time I channel and it's something I wish people would do more often. It's advocate for your own and. People need to understand source methodologies significantly better. A lot of us are compelled to believe things that were exposed to because of confirmation bias, or or because of crowd conformity. There's a million reasons that we can be compelled and feel justified in believing things that don't actually make sense when you hold them up to scrutiny so I would encourage you before you call into another show before. Before you, start to report this or or put it out or spread it around. Do some advocating for your own understanding. Figure out how you would verify something like this. Go and find the sources do what Matt said and do a Google image search that like what you're doing now is a good step I. Suppose because you're actually seeking out people that are very likely to not. Not believe what you're saying just on face value, but there's a very good reason why ray earl is because we're not able to cooperate or validate what you're saying. Just you making a claim now? This happened to you I. Think what you need to do is learn how to source these things out so that they're not just surprisingly compelling to you and they become a little bit. Bit more novel, and that might be a journey towards uncovering more about what you believe in why I'm but a quick Google search will get you there where you want to go. I is a place called slopes, s., and E. ES DOT com, because if you go to slopes, dot com, there's a site there. That is fact Jack Giant human skeleton photographs that has went up January twenty, twenty, nineteen, covering a number different photographs, showing that this is false that these these are and so you'll be able to peruse through that link on smokes to see if the pictures that you got were amongst those that were hoaxes. A okay. To you know, gain some insight on how to get started on it of course image, Google, Google administered since on, and I thought I'd try. You would find other photos like this and it wouldn't really. Anything. There were there were number of like digital art. Contest sites ran these they were compiled together. Some of them as hoaxes. You know where to look at it in a voter shop perspective stuff all kinds of problems, none of it. is accepted as science or anything that is consistent with the known history of the world, but.
A Pandemic Dahhhling, Do You Know What That Means?!
"Hello everybody welcome back to the body. Serve Jonathan and I'm James. His I told you had a bit of a surprise for you at the start. Those, Where we're watching the great, we've got one episode left and it's filled with Hazaras. That is the catchphrase. We are in the middle of pride month, and before we get into the show, a special shot and thanks to Tom Humber stone who has been or designer over the years for? Various artwork that you may see associated with the body serve, and he's given the body serve a pride makeover, so we've updated all of our various socials and websites, and you can have a look at what he did there. We think it's just swell, so thank you talk so there's been a lot of news this week. Tennis's not exactly back in full swing, but it is apparently coming soon. The plans are in place for the US Open Roland Garros and for the WPA of pretty full fall. Schedule this to happen in one day. Basically. You wake up before i. do so when I got up. We'll tell you when that was or when that typically is. Knows a lot for me to catch up on. It took a while took like full day very like I had a a grasp of what was going on, and what it felt like to me, was one domino started, and then everybody was like damn. Yes, so the USDA teased a little bit earlier in the week that they were primed to go ahead than a big announcement was coming pending government approval we had heard rumors about the zoom calls this huge. ATP Zoom Com that no Ruben was talking about on the behind the rocket podcast, criticizing Novak Djokovic for allegedly not being there, so we knew there were is nothing alleged about to. He was not okay. The whole point university I don't WanNa get spread cheated. You know everybody's got to be charted once in a while. The so there were there were murmurs throughout the week, but. Wednesday at ten am. The US Open holds a press conference in the empty and cavernous. Arthur ash stadium. Stacey Allaster is there? They have a few other folks on court physician. Mc I forgot who that was. Sorry. My reporting skills are just not up to snuff over the the tennis break, but it was very much a public relations event. There were a lot of sport reporters on zoom. So after the the press conference happened, or after the main presentation happened, there were individual questions by. Reporters who they showed on zoom, and when we found out that there wouldn't be media physically on site. We got the sense that this, too was a trial run for what the media access will be at the actual tournament where presumably players will be interviewed via zoom. Right, so the big announcement as I'm sure you've already heard that the US Open will go ahead. As planned in the the same part of the calendar in New, York City at Billie Jean, King National Tennis Centre with no spectators, and with a lot of health provision in place, but listen I'm still surprised that they're going full steam ahead. I'm still extremely skeptical and especially what we're seeing now in. Clemson University for example. was. At twenty three members of the football team tested positive for COVID. The exploding numbers and Florida Arizona California baseball has affected right now. Golf is affected right now pretty much every sport that you've seen. Attempts to restart has been affected in one way or another in tennis. Not going to be immune to that and we'll get to why. We think that that's the case based on what's been going on overseas. Break so I? Guess I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's just go through the actual news first, and then we can comment on it as part of this abbreviated summer schedule, or there will be the Washington D. C.. C. Tournament, the city open held in DC, starting August fourteenth for the men I. Don't think we have heard about the possibility of a winds tournament yet, but I believe it's being discussed because it's typically joint event, right, it's not currently in the WTO calendar, but apparently that is still open, then the western and southern open. That is normally in Cincinnati will be held in New York City the week before the US Open. And then the US Open and because Cincinnati is moving to new. York. That means that there will be no qualifying. For the US Open because typically the week leading into the Grand Slam in New, York, city. It's this. It's this week long. Qualifying Extravaganza pretty much and so with Cincinnati playing that there's no room for qualifying

"arthur i" Discussed on Model Majority Podcast
"Diverse district right, you have a white folks, Black Folks Hispanic folks even close to eleven percent Asian American residents in that area. And we also have covid nineteen. It's still very much a thing. How have you been able to engage your future constituents in these tough conversations? It's been a challenge Kevin I gotta be honest with you. You know we have got we have had to. Very innovative with all the technology and the social media. We've got a great team. Yeah, matter of fact, we've got twenty five. I think in terms from from different areas of our community who are just so energized with ideas and so look you been doing you know coffee events via zoom. We have folks reaching out. You're making phone calls. We have You know there's a lot of technologically advanced. options out there, but here here's the challenge. I mean I think traditional campaigning over for quite some time we were one of the first campaign to start participating in parades last year. Actually almost a year. June eleven. Twenty nineteen announced, and so our campaign had the opportunity to participate in hands on approach is, but that's that's been sidelined significantly between phone calls, text, messages and meetings. That's where we are. I see I think I'm hearing the similar stories from a lot of campaigns where they're trying to both innovate, and also to adapt to this new environment was still connecting with people which is at the end of the day. What campaigns all about? And I want to wrap up with one maybe broad open ended question, which is that one of the main goals of not just the interview, but a lot of interviews that we're doing this month is to build some much needed. Mutual understanding and allies ship between the Asian American community and the black community during this very delicate, but also I think very powerful time in our history. What is the one thing that you like to either say or share to our primarily asian-american audience who may or may not have had much information about the black experience in America? The main word, the only word I was saying engage you I think we have got to engage beyond transactional business on relationship I. Mean Look at even I for example you're one of my best friends. not because of anything other than you a good human being because we sit down, and we share the commonalities of wanting a broader future for our kids we we share the commonality of wanting to be good people and I think we were able to do that. Because we had enough interest, just sit down and have a conversation with each other. I would love to see more engagement between our communities surrounding faith. Surrounding education surrounding the issues that are you know in our society and our communities today, because unless we do that unless we engage and build bridges. I'm not sure how we're all been waiting. Humanity has a whole. We're benefiting our individual communities, and we need more bridge-building. That's right. No one hundred percent because I think we don't treat people like people enough I think that's one of the big takeaways that I just like feeling a lot more I treasure our friendship deeply, and I feel like that. The bond isn't has nothing to do with the color of our skin or anything like that. It's because of our shared interest in in politics and policy in golf in. Junk food like the stuff that human beings in joy, doing together without knowing or caring. Would they look like quite frankly so Hopefully, this episode of others can build some of that bond with our audience Arthur. Appreciate you spending the time to join me today. Where can people learn more about your campaign or just who you are and what you're up to their website, so social media handles that people should check out. Yeah, that'd be Great Arthur Dot COM R. T. H.. U. R. T. as in Tom are two peas Arthur chip, dot, com, or twitter is Arthur trip.
Spike Lee: a new black wave of cinema
"We've spent past two weeks in a collective state of horror and anger over George Floyd's killing at the hands of Minneapolis police, officer Dirk, Shaaban, just one thousand unjustly killed by police. It's hard to look at what happened. Floyd, and not think of Radio Raheem Bill. Nuns character from do the right thing. Or countries fucked up needs to change. No American filmmaker has had the foresight or insight about that need for change quite like spike has. Some directors interpret the past some capture the present spike does both and he sees the future. Spent some time in the past few weeks. Returning to some spikes movies in anticipation of his new film to five bloods, it's a staggering body of work as wide as it as deep as warm and inviting as provocative and laden with traps ever. Spike isn't the totality of the black filmmaking experience and I don't want to suggest that, but for forty years he's told stories about that experience that have been seen more widely and discussed more feverishly than anyone and they still haven't been seen enough. Of the conversations you've been having with loved ones this month about the problems that people are forced to look at more closely police brutality, systemic racism locally sanctioned violence gentrification, tribal loyalty, the failures of government, personal sacrifice versus public good hiring practices, power, art and money spike was ahead of most Americans for decades on these issues, but while the stories he tells are frequently polemical. His movies are quite nuanced. They rarely tell you exactly what to think. Instead foisting contradictions and crises, interviewers, laps and making them decide. He crafts extraordinary dilemma movies inspired by the new Orrin Westerns and social dramas that he studied at Nyu and even though he doesn't force a conclusion is movies are frequently an intelligence test over the years, critics and audiences have repeatedly shown their ass immediately upon exiting a spike movie. For person like me seeing his work at a young age me up, helped me see beyond my keyhole-size view of the world, but it's not like spike wasn't relatable. He was the Avatar of new. York Knicks FANDOM! He was a regular presence on TV and Jordan commercials. He was directing music videos and frequently according controversy in the movie world he consistently challenged fans and detractors to reexamine their beliefs, and he always destabilized our comfort at sixty three. He is still very much a vital filmmaker. Twenty eight teams Black Klansman was among his most honored films and marked his First Competitive Oscar win for best adapted screenplay. Spike is a hall of Famer on this show and his work accounts for some of my favorite movies ever made. This episode is dedicated to those movies and will include conversations with a couple of his key collaborators as well as a part of a conversation that was more than I had on the watchable last summer. About Lee's nineteen eighty-nine masterpiece. Do the right thing. That movie redefines the term remarkable. In it! You can see and hear the pain and conflict. We're talking about right now. Watch it again. If you haven't really later in the show, we'll have a conversation with jazz. Musician and film composer Terence Blanchard a longtime contributor of spikes. They've teamed up on fifteen films including two five bloods, and he is truly one of the great writers of music for movies. I also wanted to share a conversation I had with the film editor Barry Alexander Brown in February. Two Thousand Nineteen, after he received an Oscar nomination for his work on Black Klansman they've been together since spikes first movie. She's gotTa, have it? Like so many great filmmakers spike works with the same crew over and over again, not just Aronson Berry, but production designer when Thomas Costume. Designer Ruth Carter casting director Robby Reed, and that incredible troop you've seen over and over again in his movies Denzel Washington, of course, Johnsboro on Davis Samuel Jackson Roger One of Your Smith Arthur Nas. Kerala Delroy Lindo is Ahah whitlock junior Alleluia Debbie Masar Ruby Dee, the list goes on. Later this week will be back with a review of spikes, the five bloods, which will be available to watch on Netflix on Friday, it's the story of four black Vietnam veterans who return to the jungle for some unsettled business, its reunion of sorts of some of those actors, and for it's a kind of mission statement about missions. Lastly. We'd like to top five on this show. Spike is made more than thirty feature length films, many of which are indisputable classics to cover every style and format under the Sun. Drama Comedy Crime Films Romances Documentary Sports Movies farce satire musical. He's really done at all. I would recommend virtually every movie he's ever made, but before I share my five year a few places, you can watch his movies just in case you're trying to bone up on some of the ones you've missed. Overlook along the way.
Grandmas House Visits
"As I've mentioned before grandmother's. This house was the biggest house in Whistler. My following description of the house is intended not to Brag or Put on as as they say down south. It stood high off the ground as many homes in the south dead, and had wide steps, leading up to middle of the front porch, and into the main hallway, the porch ran linked to the front of the House with a wooden swing on the far right. This weighing Hong by small change was at the very end of the porch. This wing was part of our playground. Front doors I mentioned was in the middle of the house, and only the screen door was locked to keep babies from going out and get an end of the street. Entering the front door you found yourself facing long hallway with ten foot ceilings, and on the left side, stood an old wardrobe. No such thing as walk in closets in those days. From? That long hallway doors left and right led into the various rooms I only remember there were. Two rooms on the right and left, but many told me that there were three on each side plus the kitchen at the far end of the hallway and to the right door. Let into the sparse kitchen. And dining table, saying an icebox. Mada refrigerator not those days and not those prices. News, an icebox where you would have the iceman bring a block of in from the horse drawn wagon and place it into the top. My job was empty. The pan of melted water from underneath before it ran over, my idea was to avoid having to stop my important playing outside didn't go across very well with my grandmother. I simply suggested that I drew a hole in the floor underneath a refrigerator for drainage and save all that walking. Let them snakes house. She said ain't no way. The kitchen, there was a door that led out onto small. Porch one of the bedrooms happened to the amount of. I would go there and wonder. You see he had a hobby that influenced me for life. He built model airplanes and to this day. I'm sure the stuck in my mind. That is why I later became a pilot. Thanks Uncle Arthur. Let's get back to the front porch. Now are fun days. Where when only cousins came to visit grandmother, and that was mostly on weekends. We would cram many cousins into the swing as possible. And fareless Fred Wynn. Mount the back of the swain with his toes in between the wooden slats and holding onto the change, he would swing out. Away from the porch and backed his is. He could never quite reach the ceiling. By, the squeals, the kids. How much fun we were having. That is until an aunt. Or an uncle or grandma would put a stop to it. That swing is GonNa Bright One day. And break you Jawans Nex. I remember once this Wayne did break as my corpulent and and a friend set in it. She never went out with him again. I guess that was a sign from somewhere above. The Yard in front consisted of various plants and bushes. Flower Bush was as my grandmother called it five o'clock. As? She showed me the first time at five o'clock. The, flowers would close up for the night. Fascinating I'll tell you the day we almost died. My two cousins and I were playing in the front yard near themselves in Bush's. My cousin Barbara asked us the WanNa pull only in Manet, Sandwich. On white bread well, who, in turn that down soon came the long awaited sandwiches presented on a plate.
Summer Wildflowers With Carol Gracie
"I asked when we spoke I. Don't know a few years back upon the publication of your book spring wildflowers of the Northeast The sub pad on the cover of the new book. summer book as on the old one, says unnatural history and I'd like to know what that means. Tell people what that means. Well. It means looking beyond just the beauty of the flowers and learning about how they fit into the environment. And what their importance is to insects or birds or other animals? And sometimes to other plants as well. So, I like people to know how these plants work in the environment. What their what their roles are. You encourage us. I think in the tax in the preface of the book you encourage us when we're looking at Alzheimer's to almost act as a as a burder does when watching birds yeah. Yeah I do because it's not just checking off that you've seen a Canada Lily for example. Or you've seen. Have Sparrow. It's really observing what organism is doing. And there are still things to be learned about even our local wildflowers. That, have not been observed because people just think well, they're common. They've been here forever. Anything that is known about the must be must be written already. But yet if you just take the time and patience to sit there and watch, you could discover something new. And you'll discover something interesting. Fit Your your book in the title and Zeroes in on the northeast, but we should say where that is because it's not a small area, the northeast in terms of ripe. Thank you for doing that. I'm using the concept that was used in gleason and Cronquist, which is the manual for vascular plants of the Northeast and his concept of the north. East goes from southern Canada. Down along more or less than Mississippi River down to. Northern Missouri and across into Kentucky. And So it's a big area I've. Had People say oh I'm from Virginia I'm I'm sorry? I can't buy that book because it doesn't have any of my plants in. But these plans are awesome. Ranging and many of them are in the Midwest and in the. Northern part of the south as well. so for example one. That's in the book. I don't know how you managed to choose I. Mean because there's a lot of plants out there in that regional area that are bloom in the summer from early. To late. But you. You picked A. How many are there in the bucket their third year? Omni Arthur There are more there about thirty five, I, think. More than that, because in some chapters I cover many more than one species. Of Related Species for instance. Right, so for instance you chose Common Milkweed, and there are other milkweed Zvi chose common milkweed, and that is over a far wider range than what we just talked about. Right and that goes even beyond the. Northeast Important! For many reasons, I'm sure all of your listeners are familiar with the milkweed monarch story, but it has many other interactions with other insects in particular. Right make it fascinating to me. So. Let's talk a little bit about that. The species is so it's a sleepiest. Dhia Syria which may sound surprising because it indicates that it comes from Syria. But in fact, that goes back to a mistake that was made back in the sixteen hundreds. When this plant was first brought back to European. To describe. And they it as being the same as a plant that had been discovered in Syria. And thus they lump it into that same species, which is opossums, Syriac Him And, when lineas realized that it was a different. Genus that it was far different from a possum. He'd put it into a different genus asleep, but by the rules of botanical nomenclature he had to keep the the second part of the name, the specific epithet.
"Today a monster. If you're of a certain age, you might remember the nineteen fifty four movie creature from the Black Lagoon. Here's the plot. A geology expedition in the Amazon uncovers fossilized evidence, a skeletal hand fingers from the Devonian period that provides a direct link between land and sea animals further excavation of. Of the area where the fossil was found turns up nothing the leader. The search is ready to love, but it's thought that thousands of years ago, the part of the embankment, containing the rest of the skeleton fell into the water that was washed downriver broken up by the current. The group discovers at the river empties into a lagoon. The scientists decided to. To take a little longer and unaware that amphibious Gilman has been watching had for the lagoon, and that kill man is taking notice of the beautiful assistant. Will you get the idea? And if you think the plot for the film, the creature from the Black Lagoon came out of the imagination of a writer or perhaps a famous film director. You'd be half right. Right Produce Sir William Allen was attending nine hundred forty one dinner party during the filming of Citizen Kane, in which he played the reporter Thompson. When Mexican cinematographer, Gabriel Figueroa told him about the myth of a race of half fish half, human creatures, Amazon River, Allen, rose. Story notes title the Sea Monster Ten years later using beauty and the beast just inspiration. In December nineteen fifty two Maurice Jim expanded this into a treatment which Harry Essex and Arthur Ross rewrote as the black lagoon. The rest is movie history. The story told to Allen by Mexican cinematographer gave Figaro was based on the legend of Jaka. Ruina buried accounts describe. The arena is being Harry with their heads turned backwards and deformed feet. Could be characterized as seductive and sexually dangerous lure humans into water by taking on human forms when people of the Amazon and community disappear, and do not return such as fishermen husbands in young girls, deception is the ACA Luna had seduced and captured their victims. They abducted victims gradually come to resemble their captor the Yakov Bruno over a period of time I. There is turned to resemble the Conrad. Then their head and feet turn backward wants a full transformation is complete. The human has turned. Turned into a Jaka rhuna transformation to Jaka Ruina is irreversible and a person so transformed may never return to his or her home. I researched this story. I thought it sounded like a lot of other folktales that come from tribes of indigenous people that is until I found a nineteen eighty six account of an American doctor who ventured into the Amazon with his wife and daughter to provide needed medicine and medical treatment to several primitive communities.

Climate Cast: How hurricanes impact supply chains
"You probably know. The Atlantic hurricane season officially starts June first. But Did you know twenty twenty marks. The sixth consecutive year a tropical cyclone has formed before the official June. First start date this year. Tropical Storm Arthur formed on May sixteenth. The science shows climate change and warmer oceans are extending traditional hurricane seasons and turbo charging hurricane intensity but when hurricanes hit land. How can they impact supply chains to cities? Chris Sughrue is a researcher with the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies Chris. Welcome to climate cast a LO. Thanks for having me. What's an example of how a past hurricane landfall has impacted the supply chain? A really interesting example comes from Hurricane Katrina following that storm there was major devastation throughout New Orleans. But we also saw the this lead to regional impacts throughout the American south on various economic sectors due to shortages of materials and subsequent changes in employment as people left New Orleans in a move to other parts of the south. So what are we learning about the kinds of things that get impacted whether it's a hurricane or a pandemic and obviously supply chain been a big topic of conversation lately with covid nineteen. What do we know about how these supply chains are impacted by these economic disaster shocks? Yeah absolutely I think these kinds of ripple effects that we're talking about with cyclones also some parallels with what's going on with nineteen for example what we've learned is that bottlenecks in the production network are responsible for creating some of the the largest cascading effects that we're really concerned about likewise what we found is that cities are differentially affected by the spread of these impacts based on how they're connected to other cities for example smaller cities that have access to fewer economic relationships. Fewer industrial suppliers are more likely to be affected by the bottleneck dynamics that I just spoke about impart because they have fewer suppliers to alternate their demand to in times of shocks and so one of the things. We're learning is that it's really not just that. These shocks emerge because cities are globalized in more interconnected. But it's actually the manner in which these cities are connected. That play a big role in shaping. How these vulnerabilities emerge in which cities are most likely to be adversely affected? We often think of as costly with negative impacts. And we know that's true in many cases but do some companies and sectors profit from disasters. Yes so this is a pretty widely debated topic but we see for example that sectors like the construction sector enjoy some boost productivity following major disasters. We see in in this work that the position of cities network also has some impact on whether the spread of secondary impacts following a disaster or are adverse or beneficial so for example some regions are situated in the network such that they are less exposed to direct effects of natural disasters but also serve as alternative suppliers in the case that a shock is activated. Chris grew with the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. Thanks so much for being on climate account today. Thanks for having me. That's

"Oh we'll be so. That was your response to the Seneca girl. Diaries which I think in full on the on the New York Times the girl diaries. I was published in Tenth of December is the book but also the New York. Has it posted if anyone wants to read it right right now? Let's talk about something you said earlier. You said the different ways that that Response to music and to literature. Just unpack that so Novel it seems to me is about sort of a flowering and and A growth of idea and in many ways it feels to me like songs or the opposite which is to say they're compression and you're trying to get a very large idea into a small package as possible and so the process of doing that is different and I can only say that it's very complicated to explain how it feels right as an artist but in many ways and this was the thing one of the things that George and I were emailing that in many ways. They have a similar sense. That when it's almost terrible it might be great and that's the sort of trickiest bit of being an artist. It feels too sometimes. Is that the really breathtaking stuff is just right on the edge of terrible and sometimes it is and then you have discarded but then when it's not it's almost as if art is a circle and most of it is just in the Gazi middle and it doesn't matter but when it really is at its peak of extraordinary sometimes. It's almost just right on the edge of awful. Let's have a listen to something? That's very different So this is a musical response to music. And we're talking here the rolling stones. Yeah so as I was starting this project and before the Songwriter. Podcast had had started moving in earnest. I did an album called call and response Girl diaries was on it and each of the songs was a response to another piece of work. And sometimes that was fiction with George and other times I took existing songs such as Bruce Springsteen's Atlantic city and responded to that in this case The Rolling Stones Sympathy for the devil. 'cause I thought it was fascinating that the song is not in fact very sympathetic It's actually quite a dark portrait of the devil and I thought it would be interesting to try to write a song where again. We're we're talking about that little space where you could almost believe that this guy was not bad or that he was trying to convince you so in the song. The devil is trying to convince the listener that in fact hell is the current world and that guide to saving the heaven for himself but that the devil is here amongst US suffering with us. Which in some ways has historical precedent? Right you know. Satan was originally sent down to Earth as a prosecutor with jobs. I recall anyway. I won't get into my my long theological discussion. But that's what I was trying to package up compress and in this. Let's listen..

It's certainly exciting to have you here and I'm aware of your work because you've worked with several writers that I know so. Let's start off with finding out. Exactly what an answer. Song is so our response to other art in a way answer. Sounds just a little more specific? So well known would be sweet home Alabama on which was a song that was written by Leonard Skinner in response to a song by Neil Young. Were you know sort of theoretically mad at him for writing? A song called southern man which talked about racism. And you know that's a major hit but songs That you know you might not know our answer song so again. Very American but Woody Guthrie's this land is your land was a response to Irving Berlin. S- God bless America. He was sort of saying no. That's not my vision of America. My vision of America's like this and the songwriter project is just sort of a way of curator process saying okay. Here's a piece of work. What's your response to it right. Something that you that that springs out of that and it doesn't have to be you know a direct response. It doesn't have to be a you know a yes no answer you know what? I mean But it can just be something that's inspired so sometimes you get songs that are very specific Jonathan did a song called. Vivian Ralf are as a short story called. Vivian row for US and Cindy Lee. Berryhill read a song that was very specifically you know responding to the characters in sort of retelling the story. But then you have other folks Like say Vienna. Tang read a song that was about the trickiness of jingoism and responding to Kurt. Anderson's fantasy land about America's love affair with lying to ourselves. It sounds an extraordinarily thing and in fact I say sound. We can actually listen to it. One of the big writers that you've worked with is Booker Prize when George Saunders. He won for his book. Lincoln and the Bardo But here you've you've actually worked with them a couple times but in this one you're responding to a short story. Yeah one of my favorite short stories is called the girl diaries. From George Saunders is tenth of December and he and I were e mailing He popped up on facebook and it said maybe you know him and I said I would really like to and wrote him. Essentially crush note And as it turns out. He's a songwriter. As well as a writer writer. And that's this sort of secret sauce of a lot of these interactions. Is that a lot of the folks who write. Fiction and prose are secretly fascinated with Songs and a lot of folks like me who write songs are very fascinated with Literature so we. We started this. You know lovely dialogue about you know how to how you speak in music and how it's different an he's speaking literature and that eventually led to US collaborating on a couple of songs including this one Which is about sort of terrifying dystopia where humans from Third World countries are used as lawn ornaments and he came up with the bridge and And was it was just yeah. It was a joy to work with him because he's such A. I said you know to someone recently that I felt like it sort of emailing with Ernest. Hemingway I feel like he's you know at that that sort of extraordinary level and Yeah so it's a privilege total privilege. Let's have a listen. Will there be planes chasing chairs in sky.

Out there and please keep spreading the word we want more and more people to be tuning in and benefiting as well. I spent the week after Christmas. Literally starting on the twenty sixth of December volunteering at Fiesta. Pray floats in Irwindale California This is the second year where I have shown up for. The Chinese American heritage. Foundation's rose break float Last year it was to commemorate the One hundred fiftieth anniversary of the joining of the transcontinental railroad. And if you follow that parade story at all. It was the longest of float to parts in the history of the parade and through some kind of mishap at that grand turn from Orange Grove Boulevard on the Colorado Boulevard A little fire broke out. Little Fire. Right and The float refused to go after that. So I was a huge disappointment and right away. Wilson and Esther's ely thousand wife. Who are the founders of this Ca Hf They determined that they're gonNA move for Neck and look back then. I can assume yes to floats. And they had this other idea Which was to coincide with Congress and our President Signing the affirmation of congressional gold medal recognition to Chinese American World War Two vets. My late father and Wilson and Esther these huge very inclusive people And so they did that on their first flood damage. He could have just made it. Chinese people on the floats. The Chinese people were kept out of the Golden Spike picture. But they didn't do that and they invited Mormon descendants and native American descendants Irish descendants. And what have you to be on their float? That didn't go very far. And so this year they they expanded it. The flow scene was American heroes but it was especially putting the emphasis on World War. Two vets who are not white and so- Filipino Americans or Filipinos at the time The native American Code Talkers. The tuskegee airmen The Japanese American four forty Second Regimental Combat Team and and also the Chinese vets right so last year. They didn't know me. I didn't know them. I showed up several days. I did the decorating but then when I was done with my shift I also had my camera gear. You know me and I started taking pictures of the making of the float and I was sharing them on social media especially my facebook post and tagging. Estrin Wilson and appreciated. They liked it and so when I heard that This past year that they were getting ready to a second float. I contacted them and volunteered. My services not to decorate. 'cause you know anyone can decorate? It's just seven hour shifts but I volunteered to photograph every day. So I'll be there every day. Not Double Chefs of total fourteen hours. But I I would scramble to shifts and then I would shoot the day when the judges come which is December thirty first and then. I was hoping that They would get me press privileges to be able to shoot the float as it actually made that fateful turn from Orange Grove to Colorado Boulevard. And it all happened okay. And and so. This is kind of in one sense. It's mind boggling to me that you know a year ago I was on the sidewalk with a million others spectators waiting to see the floats and the here the bands and and all that stuff and taking my pictures of everybody else and then this year on New Year's Day I have a press credential and I'm being invited into the corral at the base of the media tower. Read at that famous turn. All the TV cameras are and then along with Corky Lee. Who is a very well known freelance photojournalist from New York that the lease had hired we clambered up into kind of the premier platform which is only really only one stage removed from the street level. And we're able to both photograph and then in my case also videotape. The float are float making the turn and then it was a matter of running down the stairs with all your gear and You know the plan was to keep ahead of float because otherwise all you're going to see is the back of a flow right and what we realized was the float which is only supposed to move it Maximova two and a half miles an hour. It seemed to be moving faster than that. Or actually we run much slower than we think and we barely caught it as it made the turn and then we had to run under the grandstands right We had to been find a way to get out into place where we can shoot and you know. We had been told that they didn't allow people to travel with to float out in the street with cameras. They had people who walked alongside Every float so I didn't know if I was going to get in trouble or whatever but after a couple of blocks of trying not to get people mad at me because I'm standing up in front of them taking pictures. I take a chance man and I just started booking it down the street like just to the left of the gutter running as fast as I could with about twenty five pounds of camera equipment on me To get ahead of our float and then set up and crouch down so that again. I'm not a obstructing people's view and shoot the people on the TV side of the float. Right which is the south side of the float and it was kind of funny. Because after several instances of them kind of looking wearing this bright yellow Parka It was pretty easy to see me. If you're is kind of glance in my direction and after a couple of times of me magically appearing I could I could actually see the reaction of the people riding on the float and walking beside the float on that side. They were shocked. Like how did I get there again right now? One of the other things that I was concerned about is whether it be able to get to the opposite side whether it was even okay to cross the street and so I just said again. It's easier to ask forgiveness than permission. So I waited. There was a little bit of a low and things weren't quite moving at their pace and then I just ran across the street got to the other side and was able to take my pictures as it turned out. It's a good thing I did. Because the the other Photographer that had been asked to shoot this particular float. He just couldn't keep up as he told me later and he said. Yeah you know what I I gave up and I went to at breakfast and all along. I'm thinking Oh you know we're getting at least two two of US shooting this float and it turned out that I was the only one now. Thank goodness I do all this Viking. Every week with most of it on an e bike because it wasn't easy but I was able to do it and I I probably made it a two miles. You know in in in into the parade route before it just seemed like I wasn't going to be able to shoot from the street anymore and as I got enough right. So it's an honor and is mind boggling that I ended up being able to do that when a year ago. There's no chance right and yet on the other hand this is my point. My point is it's not an accident. It's not a mistake i..

"Why doesn't shoot? He scored eight points but his his his I keep using the word Supernova. His athleticism and his vision is just and those nine assists. Those aren't like bring the ball up. Somebody he comes off a pin down like every dude in the league. Throw that past. They are assists that he is creating from scratch. Bear the ball pushing the ball up and getting so I think I am. His is defense. I think right now he'd be on one of my my two all defense team. His defense has been unbelievable. One thing after four games of that Philly Raptor series last year. One of the guys ternary went. Ben Ben is playing all NBA defense in the series and Co is doing that and he looked at me said he can't keep this up Kenny. Like they were spooked by after four games and it turns out they were right to be. Ben is a high high end offensive player and he gets overshadowed like he doesn't every other way by embiid. The last thing I will say ah rap on your point about the eastern sixers. You said the sixers need another shooter. I think how they resolve that debate. And it's very much a debate within their organization is going to be very very interesting because it's an easy thing to say. Sheriff Okay Poker. What so when they play with Simmons and not in Bead and embiid and not Simmons so one of them is on the floor they have plenty of shooting off for those other guys can shoot? You're really talking about the lives. When both of them play they could use a little no more shooting? But then you have to ask the questions like okay. Who is who is the shooter? And who is he playing over. Is he playing over Richardson. Is he playing over. Harris as you playing over Horford and the answer is what they really need is a better sixth man shooter not shooter. They need one guy who can plug it. If HORFORD's having a bad day or the match ups Sir bad for Harris or the match ups are bad for Richardson. Simmons is really just often not working with embiid. They need a guy that can plug into their closing lineup. And say yeah this guy can shoot. But he's also good enough that he belongs in this lineup and he's not going to get targeted on the other end and I'm not sure who that players but I know that I would be very careful of just pursuing being shooting for shooting sake. Because you're really just talking about one kind of lineup now it's an important one albeit and and I'm not sure what good that shooter or does if when he's on the floor the other team was like oh good. The best one of the best defense in the League has a weak spot. We can pick out now Matisse. Maybe that's shooter he's shooting. I've just a various he hasn't taken a lot of them. Shooting forty six percent from three. Look if that dude can shoot. It's the problem when I watched them when they came to town. Just watching his his release is still a little bit funky but he started to hit him a little bit and he's an elite defensive player in his own way like I just think and how they resolve that you go out and get to the sixers are sort of obsessed internally I think with how beneficial bell and Elian Ilyasova were to their team two seasons ago Michael recreating that acquisition like that was great. It worked well for them. They also lost in the second round and those guys are eminently targetable. At least Bella is on defense. I just it will be very interesting because and they don't have much to work with anyway. They're just under the tax and they'd have to trade one of their starters to get someone really really good but they they have Mike Scott plus some stuff can get you ten billion dollar issue player that you don't need a one way shooter and I wasn't trying to suggest you can. I mean if it doesn't cost anything take a one way shooter. It's fine but Jason I said shooter not theoretical shooter. That's some deep raptors. That's an opponent would not take shots which they're not which is Senate just sixers are fifth or six in the League in three point shooting. Now they don't take very many twenty fifth and attempts in his why I watch all these teams zoning them up and yeah they struggled horribly. When Miami did it but defenses that encouraged the sixers shoot? Three's I'm not sure like awesome ideas. It's going I mean I can see why they work. But but the sixers take a ton of mid-range Jumpers and when they don't they become a higher variance team but one they can have a game like they had yesterday. And just blow the doors off you. Yeah it's tough to get those guys. I mean that's that's the reality. I'm not even sure who that guy is in this market. It's like I could see them going to. I don't even WanNa make up a shooter. one-dimensional shoot I never been any. Oh boy yeah. He's playing tournaments. John minutes a game like this can't be on the floor and this. Yeah I mean we saw. We saw a lot of James honest. We saw a lot of Mike. Scott who who has the best player learned the League against the Raptors. So that's not exactly. Yeah exactly they're glorifying so you're looking for somebody better than that and those guys. This caused a lot in terms of assets and so we'll see if they can acquire a top of the East is awesome right now. Toronto is still in the top of these which is a great story all of in itself because when Colli left I thought good nice little cute fifth sixth seed and technically. They are that but they're better than that and the way they've withstood. Injuries is awesome and the fancier seemed to really dig this team. I mean just to wrap that up like just as somebody who has to cover for the team. I'm sort of treading. This regular seasons covered a finals run now. I sort of know what the ceiling is going to be on this team and I still think I mostly know that but the day to day effort has been so fun to watch and there's been so many fun subplots awesome. You mentioned Chris. Boucher Davis Van Vliet in Seattle. I'm taking extra steps that like each game is interesting in and of itself breath and whereas the last few years even going back to pre coli or it's like very much what's going to happen the playoffs now. They're still that question. But it's not the defining question and the way that has been like there's the experience of Sports Phantom is essentially unrewarding for the vast majority of fans if you measure by championships right like it's just if you're lucky you might be truly happy once in twenty years and take almost any sport for most franchises and the raptors got that the rafters got there once in twenty twenty five years and the funny thing that what you said Corinne. Is that the ceiling on this. Like they're not that different from what we thought they would be like. They're a good team. That's probably one superstar away from being a great team. It's the simplest math in the world like when the playoffs start. They won't be favored against Philadelphia or Milwaukee. Or maybe Boston or emmy. It's interesting actually actually like it's they lack a true hundred percent superstar. NC The part of the season watching CEAC him and see how close he could become to that But this team has been so admirable and again it might come to come back to bite him. Because you can't play Kyle forty minutes and all this stuff off. This is a championship organization. That's what this comes down to and the habits and the good things about that championship run. That weren't choline. Leonard are still unfold display and for raptors fans. It does get better than this. They know that it just did but doesn't get much better than this. No it's cool and these games are rewarding and I have to go because I need to figure out who needs to get fired for this world junior hockey debacle the team. USA is just suffering you to analyze the the game. Break it down Air Korean all his stuff at the athletic he's covering all things raptors bruce. Arthur read all his stuff. It's Toronto Star is probably GONNA be covering world junior hockey but you can read that too and he'll cover some raptors guys. This is a wonderful annual holiday tradition. The next version of this tradition as we go out to a bar like normal human beings have some beverages and watch a game. So let's do that. But in the meantime time thank you for your time. Thanks for having US always a pleasure. I'm sorry we don't have any tobogganing snow this year..

"Will say this. I don't care the trae young is young. I don't care you can tell point. Guard defense doesn't matter it doesn't matter if he tries. James Harden doesn't try Luca. Danni doesn't try. You can go on and on first of all. Those guys are bigger and stronger so just just by definition. They're going to be better. Even if there is bad. Trayvon does not try and I have learned enough about the NBA. To know that when your best player mails it on defense That can have. I'm not saying it's happening in Atlanta but that can have a corrosive effect on a locker room and I so I need to see I actually leaning to putting trae young in the All Star game as much as I'm saying all this stuff that makes my stomach turn but if he makes my final roster it's going to be as one of the very last spots because I just I don't he's a he's a really great offensive player. I do. I have to keep calling back on that reality. He's a really truly great offensive player. I just I wish I wish that the other and we're not so bad. This isn't a direct comparison. Obviously and I hate hate to single out Jeremy Lin but when Jeremy Lin came from Atlanta last year they really thought he was going to be a useful player for them and he got into the raptors. I kinda practices and he wasn't at that level. He wasn't a guy who's been a really great competitor in his career wasn't at that level. And and that's why Jeremy Lin wasn't even a question when Fred Van Vliet was missing a hundred straight shots. There was no thought of putting Jeremy Grammy Winning the game and the theory was there wasn't a single Atlanta Hawks. Game that had mattered. And that eventually it atrophies some of your competitive have reflexes other teams. Don't take the Atlanta Hawks. Seriously they don't. There's the worst team in the league. And so I wonder I think it takes like you. He's still a great offensive player and put on the right team. There's no question. He's an all star. It's hard to say. How much of his production is because other teams? Don't care about both the Atlanta Hawks. 'cause they don't need to. Yeah I mean having watched him play against the raptors and a few other what he does out. There is like elite all-star all star specialist. I'm leaning towards putting him into I'm looking at this list and those were the guys I know I wanNA put put on. So that's yeah.

Of the guys that that the second guy that you're going to add off a team of one of the good teams I think does so many things such a high impact defender offender so he's sixteen eleven and five fifty seven percent shooting and elite defense his advance stats are like outrageously good. So good best. Best of all of these guys for what for your mileage may vary okay. So I'm sorry. Go ahead I think Campbell needs to be there and he's he's he's not oughta starter Butler's the starter and our Cambe Butler. I thought it was sorry I am. I missing I thought it was butler. Never Mind I'm the idiot here. Okay don't like that word trying their best not ever. Okay so I yeah I think needs to be there. What he's doing is because of the Washington Wizards don't play much defense? But I think bill at least just tries and maybe that's just me exhibiting the same bias as coaches well and that like he's been on that end before and therefore if the wizard I suck on defense. It's not his fault. Twenty eight and seven is hard to ignore. Yeah so I think bill's there and I'm not sure which I think is there too I think for Harris. Yes to me he is. I think he has more impact night at night out. Canada has has beaten the United States to four. I'm one of young and Brown is definitely. They're both might be. Their restaurants are not young tatum. The Young Celtics and I was lucky. I got the name trae young. This confused me. One of Brown and Tatum is there. I can't decide aid which one and so I'll maybe leave that off to you. I'll tell you who I'm leaning towards right now. I'm leaning towards Jaylen Brown. Does shooting numbers aren't close thirty. Nine percent on threes fifty percent twos advance stats are better. I think tatum is actually probably going to be a a better player. Just in the sense of. He's so much more polished on offense that Brad Stevens rotations day trust him more to run run kind of be the number one guy would Kemba Walker rests than they do Jalen Brown and the plus minus numbers reflect that. They are plus thirteen with tatum on the floor and minus three. When he's off the floor which is one of the biggest net differences in the league much bigger than Jalen and I think? Here's this here's a medium. Take I think Jason Tatum has been as good or better on. Edifices season is Jalen Brown. Jason Tatum has become a really really good defensive player. And but I think Jalen has had a slightly better season season. So I'm leaning Jalen. Can we talk about trae young. Sure I don't have like a lot of strong takes on trae young other than I guess he shouldn't make the all star team which which is a strong take around delayed points and nine assists per game. And you're leaving you're leaving. Yeah well you. Hugh roasted tons things. ex-college the other day for his defense was not good helping. 'cause you're the hater here is averaging twenty nine nine. He's ofensive offensive. Advanced statistics are outrageously good. He is outrageously good offensive player. The hawks without him are almost better off. Just taking shot clock violations offense. They're so bad and so people will use that as a way to back. TRAE case in response response to those people I would say the Hawk's roster is awful and it's awful somewhat by designed De'andre cameras are not supposed to be good. They're rookies now. Cameras has been a disappointment so far. But it's very early but you know it's just super early. There should be bad. Their second best player has been suspended. Almost the entire season they have seemingly half of their roster spots are being used up on cap fodder or broken players old players like so am I really giving trae young quote unquote credit because the team. mm-hmm is so bad when he doesn't play I'm not giving him any credit for that. That's nice that they're a decent offense when he plays defensively. They are so bad with him on the floor and he is reason as a number one that they are so bad with him on the floor and I.

"Won't use the Herbie pronunciation of Mike Wholesaler. Komo down to the raptors. Pa Guy Herbie Code. He's what he was coaching. Lada Data Schroeder was a Lotta was. There's a scene out sutter. What was that the Arcata to center? But like I think a lot of people maybe even in Milwaukee I can't that speaks to the puzzle that team probably thinking the raptor series last year one coach adapted better than the other coach dead. And I think there's some validity letty to it. I wouldn't say that the reason the box lost and the raptors one but it's a reason and so let's see when Philadelphia Austria forces them out of their comfort zone. How many ways they can? They can play because I think the raptors have shown or especially last year showed they could win in a number of different styles. And you don't necessarily need that versatility if you're so dominant in one type of play by. I'm not sure the box will be able to be that unless you just goes through per Nova which again is possible and also defensively offensively. They're GONNA be great. They're always good. If the Americans have tided up ZAC. Yes World Juniors Baby. USA Yes beautiful goal by that Guy Hockey mic talking with a wonderful pass there. That is nice draft. Pick Nick Roberts on the past whatever. The Toronto Maple leafs just totally dependent on American players players at this point. And don't forget our data Golay. Okay so so the bucks play great defense and and I do think up to your point Bruce About philly not prioritizing the regular season I think the bucks dabbling a little. More with the honest at center is interesting and I think indicative of of them thinking ahead a little bit and they do stuff in the regular season did Canada. Just go ahead as I'm talking. You know what I don't even I didn't even see it but there was some penalty there and my technical analysis of that play without having watched it because the TV is behind me. Is Gosh the heart on these Canadian. Kids please fans. Where is this tournament checkup? Industrial town in the Czech Republic. I never go to Europe. It's always an industrial town. A good sign. I don't even know what I was saying. Where Y- honest defense for the bucks like the bucks will do things like Dell Dell play lots of minutes in the regular season with? bledsoe Middleton Upton Janas all on the bench and I think although those minutes have been successful and were successful for parts of the Boston series for instance last year I think one of the easiest changes that they have when things get a little title is to minimize those minutes and the other question is how far can they stretch honest because you saw it last year playoffs like they're just not willing to make Jaanus a okay okay. You're playing forty four minutes tonight. They don't think they think how hard he plays in. Whatever is best used in like super hard seven-minute eight minutes spurts and you come out at some point? We're talking about how you can't play. Giannis had center with Joel embiid on the floor. Well the easiest way to get the honest centers then play them every minute. That embiid is on the bench and but does that involve stretching to forty two forty three forty four minutes again like to win the championship. He might have to have five games like that. In the playoffs flexibility disability matters the way they're at the raptors played a lot of different ways in the playoffs last year. And the way they won that Milwaukee series was by adjusting. The adjustment they made the biggest one was go. Get that kid. That's the super helpful right. Like that's just a nice thing to have in the back pond nicklaus's a genius but you also so look. It'll be really interesting to see if Boston and Miami do something between now and the deadline because those teams aren't that far away like what does Miami look like if they trade for Kyle lowry and let's say they give up. I don't know Duncan Robinson and Gordon Drug Addiction James Johnson or whatever and all of a sudden they got kyle and they got Jimmy me and got hero and they've got Bam like that's a super interesting team. They're really Miami is really good. And they're they're well-constructed day arch Ridge at the problem is i. It's going to be interesting to see if they can find a traitor that they have big expiring contract They can trade i. I think they're allowed to trade. They control their first available. I it was two years after out to two years after the last one I believe and they do have justice winslow who they are winning without and has a handy dandy thirteen million dollar the contract but they've really liked justice ones and they should without him going into deal. I'm not sure they have the juice to get anyone good. But they have some trade pieces that makes cents for a team. That STRANA goal in speaking of Miami. I thought this would be a good excuse to pick up or to talk about Eastern Conference all stars because all star voting opened yesterday. And I'm going to have to write an all star column at some point and as I dug into it I was like this is actually kind of fun. The east of the East is really weird. So we're talking about all. These teams were what were twelfth bound conversations last year. I'm trying to remember John Russell. In Yeah. Pascal most improved basketball. Siachen was a consideration. It was it was. I mean we've had some questionable eastern turn conference all stars not to be smerch them specifically besmirch march marching there. See I'm all about the half-measures apologized. College is for everything. Just further reinforcing stereotypes about Canadians so the East is unusual in that there are five stone cold locks folks. I'm GonNa Pencil in as the starting five of the All star team positions be damned because I think they will let us do this Kemba Walker Jimmy Butler. He's going to I hope they make him eligible a guard and forward. So He's my other guard Jaanus. Joel embiid outcomes injured but he plays so well that if he gets the X.. More Games under his belt by the time we have to finalise this He. He's in so that's five. We got seven reserves. There's like twenty dudes who are are on a giant bubble and part of the businesses. Unusually interesting to me is two of them in particular are putting up monstrous. There's numbers on really really bad teams and one of those guys is a past. Also I believe a two time all star and that's Bradley beal and the other one is trae young so let me read you some names here fourteen and by the way this is even trimming some fat trae young Jalen Brown Jason Tatum. Adam Ben Simmons Tobias Harris Spencer Dinwiddie Bam out of Bio Democracy. Bonus Malcolm Brogdon Kyle lowry Bradley beal. Fred Benfleet Chris Middleton and then you get into Devante Graham Andre Drummond Zach Levine. Evan forty-eight guys. I'm not GonNa let myself so much with some of those guys. You could make an argument. I guess for an Andre Dromedary exactly even if you want some people will that's a lot of dudes and it also takes us into territory of like I normally resists is this kind of discussion with all of it. I think it's interesting. This year of like does ex team deserve to does deserve three. Does any team deserve three. Does Indiana absolutely have to have one of support Brogden get on. Doesn't Miami deserve a second all star with Bam I. I don't know there are no right answers those those questions. I typically find them that deserve wording sort of uninteresting but either one of you I just named a lot of dudes. There are lots of ways you can go trey and be L. and losing teams. If Boston gets one who should it be a second one behind Kemba who should be if Indiana gets one who should be. What is what is of that is interesting? Yeah I mean it's really difficult for all the reasons you just mentioned so I'm inclined to just start naming players. I think need need to be there now. I'm not as it feels funny. Yeah here it feels hot other thing that occurs to me and I don't think it's particularly interesting conversation to have right now. But the coaches picked the reserves so there is a natural bias. I would say toward veteran players. Who have done this before? And they've had to scheme around multiple times. There's there's is there into winning team. Yeah I think trae young might lose out on. It's as if I was just capping this now I would guess trae young would not also needs to be there this no okay so so just looking at the list I have I think by Mata Bales and all star needs to be there needs to be their number one to the list guy up the band will bandwagon. I think cameras there. Bam is number one on your list Bam..

"Let's talk about the other Eastern Conference Christmas game yesterday and use that as attention to get into other things of all the Christmas Day Games. I was most excited for Philadelphia Milwaukee. Because that's the I want lot that series and the playoffs I think it's fascinating matchup of fit versus talent. Got The two spurs coaches going against each other. You Got Janas Calling Simmons of baby during a game lazarus-like there's clear anytime beat is involved with star player. God only knows what will happen and I just think that's that's a fascinating matchup endlessly fascinated by by the sixers. Take it through the Lens of Toronto. If you want Milwaukee I feel like we know what they are. Philadelphia is is a mystery that is evolving. Like what do you. Th- What do you think. Either one of those teams look like in May or June. I I think same as you. I had philly clippers in my NBA. Finals and I just maybe it's my reaction to watching that series between the raptors after the sixers last year but they're just so big and so from the Toronto Perspective it's like yeah we're good but two of our four best players are. Kyle are lowering Fred Van Fleet and they eliminated one of them last year and Kyle and his best series by any stretch. And I just think there's so much skill there and which if they can find a way to add you know one shooter who can you know be decent on the other end of the floor which is very difficult. I realized they were the most intriguing team to me. And even though they've been sort of a mass sometimes I still think I would take them over the box now with a lot of confidence. The bucks are awesome. But I think I'd take them whereas Milwaukee again like. They seem like this team. WHO's just wrecking the the competition and Dr Almost fully formed? And that worries me. Because I've seen some very now they have honest and Janas different than whatever and he fully formed Toronto team that was excellent and the regular season ever had. But if you're playing the regular season and you have one one-star like what Middleton might make an all star team won all stuff. He's not a star though he's very very very good complimentary player. That just worries me. Come the playoff time because team like the sixers is going to have a lot of options to throw at Janas nobody can stop them except sub maybe embiid to take away from that game because remember go back to the rapture second remember. What Paseo Moran through in the playoffs last year so incredible Jonathan Isaac in the first round Jonathan? Isaac is a problem in the future like Jonathan. Isaac is defensively defensing this year. He might second round. Here's Joel embiid. Third Round you get Janas and by the way in the finals you get draymond green and I asked him what was the difference between the honest and embiid and he said the difference is I might be able to move him if I get them off balance and I get a shoulder and who am I might be able to move a little bit and create some space with embiid just bounce off them and in what you saw. In that Christmas Day game it was fascinating watching embiid guard Yannis. Because the thing that's Yakim ran up against those guys. These guys are bigger than me. And all my tricks like seventy percent of them disappear all of a sudden and embiid is one of the few guys in the world who's bigger than yawn us and can stay with them and that is a fascinating nuclear weapon to half. I said this the couple podcasts ago EMBIID EMBIID is engaged in its shape. He is is the most impactful and best defensive player and I mean it's close because you're too but to me it's clear and yesterday was one of those sorts like there's nothing you can do around the rim mm-hmm nothing. He's in the game he he. What happened that? Raptor series is when I'm Beatles within fifteen feet of the rim the raptors weren't and he's he just he. They're racist things. He's quite graceful two and he's graceful about he can be almost hunched over a smaller guy around the rim and when that guy jumps to shoot and beat. It's it's almost like he sucks in his entire chest cavity and moves backwards in mid air but keeps his arms up and doesn't foul. He's very graceful. He was great on Yonge. Was uh-huh something bad. Seven of twenty one or something like that. I don't have it in front of me and I picked yesterday. Look the sixers twenty one three district. They may not be twenty one through the rest of the season. Let's be clear about Eric. BLEDSOE didn't play. Let's be clear about that. I picked to make the finals. And like when you're picking the finals in August or timber it's just like you're throwing at the wall but I do feel like on a fundamental level. They are built to play the bucks in the playoffs. And that's what background said after the game straight straight so you put embiid on Jaanus. They went embiid sits. You put Horford on Janas and you put Tobias Harris Brook Lopez which I think was smart and like look. That's the the best you can do and on the other end of the floor. They had Jonathan Simmons. Which means that Wes Matthews was guarding? Al Horford I can't remember who was matthews of Middleton and the the other one was guarding Tobias Harris in playoff basketball. Like those guys aren't killer post players. But you're going to be able to manufacture some buckets out of those size mismatches. There's also like like the bucks. This year have been playing Jaanus at center more than they ever did last year. They can't play that against them. Beat when meat is on the floor you cannot play on his because he is going to put in the basket and he did that part of the reason and beat on you on. This is a favorable natural for not favorable is a match up. They like is if they get a stop. Jaanus is stuck on embiid on a lot of possessions and you saw there were two repossessions where embiid just put them out of bounds and dunk the ball. He just doesn't exist right like embiid at his very best I think can be the best player in the world and there's not a lot of guys you can say that about and the honest Guy Janas can do things but the other thing on the game and this is something that were. This is a lot of what the experiment is this year. Is How rigorously can you build your shot. Cadillac of options in terms of plays. The you know you can go to in tough situations nations from fifteen feet from eighteen feet all the stuff right. Jaanus has been hitting some threes. And that's an lovely thing but how well is it built. Well I love what embiid did yesterday because not only did they not guard him. There were a couple where as soon as he soon as he looked like he was gonNA shoot and beat was just under the rim. EMBI was just like you go ahead. We're totally disrespecting you and it actually is interesting because the bucks defense is built around playing those kind of mind games with So-so three point shooters like your your miles els turner above the break. We're going to let you shoot every single time. We're not going to guard you and by time five or six you can see miles. Turner being like one am I being selfish really keeps shooting these and they played that game with the go ahead fell shooting thirty two percent. That's great I'm going to be over here at the rim. Because I don't know I think Janas impervious to those kind of mind games. Those fun to see the sixers play with them. The best defense in the world and we see this every playoff allow just shots at the offense doesn't WanNa take and that's the beauty of the Koirala's like he lived in the mid range for a lot of that and he was great at it and that's what the outcome is trying to become. It's like if philly takes away this this and this am I able to take a sixteen foot or a Dirk Mark Imitating one legged jumper and there's not to my eyes at Jaanus is so dominant around the rim so dominant when it in transition hitting threes is amazing but one. There's a wall what's going to happen. And that's going to rely on a lot of box to hit a lot of threes which can happen or Jaanus to develop his offense to an extent that I think there's another level there you go to hit it and you can see that it's not like he's hopeless the way he shoot. They're they're gonNA BE Games against the if that if that playoff series happened there are going to be two games where he shoots routes three of seven and the difference between Oh seven three seven is bucks win. That's the difference and will they be four right and that's the question in that playoff series. And that's where I I think. The Raptors are probably drawing dead to an extent against Philli because of the size and because emptied can Garcia Com. Probably of CEAC him the way he triggers eggers above the break threes. Now that may change the game a little bit. Because he's not scared but dot matchup is so difficult because of embiid but with Milwaukee I again Milwaukee Walkie people who listen to this like no one respects the bucks they were like this and the regular season last year pick. The Bucks beat their actors in the playoffs bucks. You know they were.

"Into. Hey you no losers run this through the whole season but if they fall into like a solid six a real six I do think they my senses and teams around the League. You share the sense that they haven't closed the door on at least talking about. Are we really really good. And I thought my personal opinion is if they get everybody back everyone's healthy Siachen was fifth on my mvp before he got hurt so obviously he's a huge piece. They get everyone healthy. I don't think they can win the east because I don't breath. This is a weird way of saying. I think they can be anyone in the east and a playoff series. Maybe even the bucks but I don't think they can win three in a row even at even at full strength yeah. I don't think they're good enough to get out of the East but to me. That team that I just described is good enough that you take the victory lap. It's good enough that ride with it into the playoffs the others. But the scenario barrio looming. There is if if they fall a little bit where. There's a gap in the standings and that path becomes what six three and we don't have home court and then it's like six two and we don't know that that's an at least a conversation. This is such an interesting question because it's about what is what what's worth something in sports right winning championships obviously number one. So once you've done that how much is contention worth for a team that wasn't expected expected to content. And by that I mean you get the second round you get to a game seven. Let's see what happens right against Philadelphia or a Milwaukee what's that worth to the rafters going forward versus. What is it worth to break up that team and if you break it up? This team has two bigs. And they're both free agents right because all in a bucket. That's it they. They have a replacement for Kyle lowry on the court in terms of Fred Vanfleet. But what. Kyle's doing this year and the emotional bond. He has built with this city. The is so powerful. What what's what's that worth? If you move away and it's it's a huge question for us is here to answer. We know he's ruthless enough to do it and you know that he is considering both possibilities because he always did other teams in the League a my prediction. It's in my thirty five. Random predictions gone for years. Here's that they do not trade lowery and essentially stamp pad because I base it on things number one. I thought they were gonNA be too good. And that is proven true and number two. I so it's GonNa be a good offer like I just don't think the raptors are going to trade a franchise icon for like an expiring contract from the heat and a crappy twenty twenty-five first round pick the price it has to be especially when you're a team that's like okay so we traded kyle. Our we got we got. Let's say it's twenty to twenty fifth. Pick in two thousand twenty four. Every year we're finding rotation players without even having a draft pickling pick like non it's totally non essential to us. So I just don't know that there's going to be a team that makes them an offer to me. It's more about the offer like I bet. I bet devalued contending for a championship or anything. I bet if they got a great deal I actually actually. I don't know I really don't. But if they got a great offer they would have to think about it. But I just don't know that offers coming sort of where I am like especially with lower if we want to focus on on him more than either of Consol or search Baca first of all Larry makes thirty two thirty three million dollars that to you so you add up a lot of contracts and the raptors. Don't WanNa take on any money after twenty twenty one because they're signing Yoenis. There's that and this is the greatest player in franchise history. Everybody sort of agrees on this. Now you're going to trade them again again for a first round. Pick down the line like if this championship that they had last year. Menton off off that the chance. Even if it's not a full-on serious repeat bed the chance to defend it and the chance to to be knocked out as like honorable champions. I think that matters to the fan base. It matters to the front office. And that's what fans there is not going to be something that is more valuable than that available. I just don't see it. And what you said Zach. I think is really interesting. The idea that uh they can win. I think in the organization. There is a belief that if this team is healthy they can beat anyone in the East in a playoff series and let me just be clear. Because I don't want to disparage the bucks. Fancy and so they get the bucks fans angry I would pick the bucks to beat the raptors. Her I think the bucks full strength versus the Raptors full strength. The bucks probably win that series eighty to ninety eighty percent of the time but twenty percent is a lot twenty percent or fifty. That's a like there's a universe in which the raptors do win that series by the Raptors before everyone was hurt art had like the fourth best net rating in the league. All the evidence suggests that this is not a cute frisky team. That's actually a really good team. And there's also that outside scenario with what what if philly in Milwaukee because Philly doesn't care about winning games it's for a lot of the season affiliate Milwaukee play in the second round and you only got to play one of them those are the two teams. I think that the raptors would worry about NEC take this is again. Boston is awesome expectations. Miami is legit. I think I don't think there's much of a contender. There is the record indicates. But they're really good. Indiana is really good. They have all the depot Welker all. These teams are really good. I just don't know that you can stack each despite what happened yesterday on Christmas and again all all those players are injured. I don't know that you can stack them up next Toronto and say well. That's an easy series for Boston. That's an easy series for Philadelphia. I don't think you can say that. Well and so. They do believe that they can compete with their championship. DNA with the talent they've got when rotations are down to eight guys in the playoffs that they can match up. The funny part is Marcus would look great in Boston. Right and Kyle. lowry would look great in Miami everywhere. I caught hell lots of places. I'll fit so easily around thing. It's and Endelman the raptors. Maybe that works in some. If if Masai is ruthless enough but I do think that there I agree I think there's there's a huge amount of currency in being the defending champs and cementing your bond to the city in this country in terms of if you talk to raptors actors fans this year. They have loved cheering for this team. They've loved it more than they loved it last year because they're the underdogs again and it's been like I've talked talked to so many. You've just said it's so rewarding that Christmas Day game was kind of the first one where you really saw the limits like they were beat to Clinton's game in in in Toronto. Yeah that one too right But this team doesn't cheat you know right almost any night and this is a League where there's twenty games that are scheduled awesome for almost everybody and these guys have erased a lot of the schedule losses in terms of. Just ask for us. Plus you being around here reminded me like Van. Vliet is beloved here. People just loved love that guy because he's got such big balls and be and just talks the talk L. Walks to walk and Siaka CIOCCI Jauregui like Siaka is is the raptors picked him mm-hmm. He's he's when you pick a guy in the first round low and he develops into a player like this in this city. He's like he's he he. It was unbelievable before he got hurt. Vanfleet free agencies going to be very interesting so interesting. Yeah that team across the lake in Detroit wait. I think we'll take a hard look at him as anybody. One Norm Powell. Does anybody WANNA norm Powell right now like honestly when I was on that run and you think this of course with lots of players sell Salom high sell them where you can put him on a team and get that number that player option off the books or keep hope he does this all season so the decline player option like those are the two scenarios norms the biggest impediment in that salary cap the art the art of trading player at the right time is so hard and a lot of times. I do control all but just the only trade we've had since Russell Westbrook brought that up and that's not the Xm the jazz just to for too long. They traded him at the absolute lowest point of his value. They could've traded number earlier and I understand. Then why is the fifth highest pick. They have that they made as a front office on that roster and it's just hard to give up on a guy like that took -nology truth truth brought to you by Geico truth.

Orange crush right like orange crush is objectively way. Too Sweet and ridiculous elicits a cartoon drink but it's still pretty good still pretty good okay. Let's not talk anymore. We're in Toronto Raptors finally after years of agitation and angst and Whoa is us the league doesn't like us because we're in Canada got their Christmas game got the noon game which is kind of like the few. We don't really want you on Christmas game and promptly got destroyed by the Celtics but let us not dwell on that the Toronto Raptors are twenty one and ten and in the loss column. They're tied for fourth in the Easter. Actually six in the East I think a left be lower in Abaco or heard at the same time. See Powell Gasol and Siaka are now or heard at the same time. Will lowry Baca went down. I thought they have now reached a critical mass of injuries. Where is Pascal playing unbelievable? All this they just don't have enough guys and they just keep winning games. The unearth the Boucher's and the terrance Davis's and all of this I go to you as my you guys live here like what are you. Either of. You surprised how good good the team is particularly wants to. I mean I thought it would be like a nice forty eight win team and then all the injuries happen boy. This go south vast. I didn't think they could and survive a major injury to either lowry or CEAC him. I thought if that happened. This was now eastern conference. So if you've got a particularly friendly a portion of the schedule which in large part they did in the lowry Baca period of absence you can survive but if If that were to prolong and you're to get a stretch like they have now or even the stretch they had. Just after the Larry Rebecca returns earns I was going to be trouble. But I think that first west coast trip the first game against New Orleans. One Kyle lowry and Serge Ibaka Both hurt themselves and the next game they go out and beat the Lakers. I I mean that's the town and they played so hard that game it was like the arena wasn't a playoff atmosphere but the their level of effort was and that's sort of become their trademark. I think is this is a team who is GONNA take. It's GonNa take a lot for this team to quit on a game yet. It's I actually thought they had a chance to be a really good team. Because I thought that even without Kawhi Danny Green. WHO's the the guy we never talk about that? They lost their their wing rotation other than obviously to get in. And it'll be back. But they lost seventy five percent of their minutes on the win. Gone and to to really high end defenders because Danny still a high end defender. I still thought that this could be good because they as a team still can defend at a high level bill because I thought they would have enough and they would play hard enough to get through the season and even I didn't think that they had the upper level that they've shown at times and I think that what Corinne talked about those two games in L. A.. Like the clippers game the clippers. That's a tough place to play on the second of a back to back and they played really well in that game and made it a really made it a contest. There's a championship. DNA In this team and it's the simplest thing in the world to see and say but the way they play the levels they can go to in terms of playing hard the the way they know what each other were supposed to be doing the confidence you can see in Kyle lowry in Pascal. CEAC him in Norm Powell at times. Although he's always been a little overconfident he's playing this is this. Is what a weird career. He's had random playoff spark plug to signs the contract contract there are high hopes to Oh crushing disappointment and not really doing that much. In the playoffs to all of a sudden everything fifteen a game at shooting the hell out of it and appears essential chill quietly. He shot forty percent from three last year. He was better than we thought last year. And it's so strange because if you watch his shot a lot which I've had the pleasure to I do like it. Looks in real time. Like he's releasing his shot on the way down there was like a bit of a hitch and shot and yet if he levels out at thirty eight percent or forty percent. Then that's obviously a great place to be hold on and I'm laughing because Walter who is beautiful dog just pulled Okla crisan chocolate croissant acts.

"Welcome to the show. Arthur Michael Pleasure to be here great to have you here You do some amazing amazing work And you know some of the things that I've seen that you do obviously in what we'll dive into this a little bit more Is You really help people with with their voice and techniques and and all the nuances of things that a lot of us don't necessarily think about when we're we're talking or speaking or presenting and obviously we'll dive into some of the awesome people you've worked with but what drove you to to launch this business. What was what was the history behind it and and what are some of the great things that you've done since deciding? Hey I need to do this well. This has been professional life. I've created awareness fifty eighty four years ago and I have a master's in voice in classical singer training but this has been my life's work to begin with singing winging events simply can morphing and I don't advertise at simply all in word of mouth and going it. Just it's phenomenal. I've been privileged to do in you. See My client list. It's quite substantial very spy vary and I teach empowerment through voice. I teach mastery through communication but I also teach communication master and many elements of the work are now trademark. Which pleases me because recognized as original? Thought you you got to keep this and vocal awareness is a paradigm shift in communication with a teaching the actors that you know I teach or you're the corporate executives that I teach the singers. The broadcasters is all the same work it's vocal awareness empowerment the voice. The the list of people that you've helped over your career you know. These are names. That people recognize Angelina Alina. Naturally Sean Connery Stephen Covey a ton of NFL. Urs such as Jerry Rice cream Abdul Jabbar. You name it in your larger or large organizations Ernst and Young the cinema you've dealt with a variety of different people different personalities different gifts in one or some of the things that you discovered when you're working with these people because each one of them are incredibly gifted in their own the skills if they're an actor or professional football player or somebody like Tony Robbins. WHO's eight feet tall? And just ah if we could somehow tap into the energy source of that human being generates. I don't think we'd ever have to pay a utility bill any of us across the planet because the man is just absolutely. It's amazing I mean just watching videos and all of a sudden you're like we're dinner. She was come from and it can be. It can be on on mute and you still get it. It's the weirdest thing but you know what are what are some of the things that That a lot of these people come to you with a very thoughtful question when I was writing hall of fame speech for one of my. NFL students a couple of years ago. I look up the word champion. And the root of the word champion is not a sports central terminal literally means dazzlingly skilled in any feet. And I teach mastery every elite artist. I teach every elite athlete in their skill set. They are in master. They are true champions and the common thing in all of these people is commitment to excellence the commitment to doing doing whatever it takes but that being said Marshall Faulk in Akzo wasn't hoping his his teammates improved. He's totally self focused on executing that performer on the same page. Doesn't think Gee I hope the audience lights me They're only in their art completely self-focused so the point them that I'm in part making to become. Oh Great. Champion to be in mastery in a skill set requires one to be S- now that word means Bowl fearlessly daring courageous intrepid. Doing whatever it takes to not just just do one's best but to be once best and so when these individuals so honored that Commissioner Cadel the Commissioner of the National Football League wrote the foreword for my last book because he's such an integral and to have his name. There means a great deal because he to a champion who does whatever it takes so the common theme here is eight. That two in one's desire to be in do their best. The mastery lies in the subtle. Too when you're playing golf playing tennis your grip is a sixty four inch off or the toss is not. Hi Anna whatever it might be. We know the result. We know that in sport but we don't know that in communication communication so right now. I'm taking my workout. I'm not in vocal awareness at all. I'm just speaking to just you know what I'm saying. Michael it's really a pleasure pleasure to be here with you today. Thank you so much for having me on versus Mike Alytus real pleasure to be with you today. Thank thank you very much for having me on now. We don't know why the first one felt disingenuous. We just know it was in authentic. We didn't realize that my pitch was too high or I spoke to fast. All we got his untrustworthy. We didn't realize the second one. I simply breeds slow down. My voice opened up my pitch was lower. All we got his. That man is more general again so the challenge here arts math in the art athletics. We recognize outcome if I don impossible right. If I don't do this here we see immediate but because speech is habit Michael no one has ever talk about any of these things before so Mike clients all learn that it's not just a breath. The quality of the we learned that it's not just sitting up street. It's embodying ourselves in March dot dot dot obviously don't Komo for air but this is my show is yours so let me do just that in the my making sense and addressing your questions almost definitely and and it it brought awareness to myself on things that I say and present specially in this format of podcast interviews but also in communicating with clients with family with friends in this world that we it getting the words for this were in such an instantaneous type of world where people are so used to getting things instantly gently and whether it's ordering food or having it delivered or social media or Google to be able to look up something within seconds where my generation you know. We remember going to the library and researching things. And and you know the dewey decimal system and all of that fun stuff but the thing it is. I think sometimes you you you highlighted this well with the communication. We talk about something in talking with people. All you're doing it from a place of just being present and being there and not saying welcome to the breakfast leadership. I guess this is Michael. Eleven that a script and but genuinely welcome people and say. I'm really happy that we're having this conversation today. In the reason why why is because I know people that are listening to this. I trust it's going to resonate with them like it has with me just in the first few minutes of our chat on on being a little bit more aware of the power of what we say and and being aware of it to really hone The mastery history of what we do. And if we can do that it's GonNa make a huge shift in the work that we do how we impact people just is everything that we touch. May I interject by all means Tony. Robin would referred to my seven rituals this pattern intervals. It would say to create a new pattern and we have to exaggerate behavior to establish breaking old so because speeches habit in technique of this work. We're actually creating new neural pathways days. Where rewiring this fluid system so? We know that the better climbing into the box has rituals. We know before you moved to the baseline and free throw line or walk out on stage. There is a ritual but we don't use rituals in life. We just walk in and put up a powerpoint presentation but what I'm teaching here. His conscious aware snug just consciousness but awareness of that consciousness. I'm tuned in three sixty to the best of Maya Belt because I'm teaching here Michael that it's not just what we say. It's how it's not just the message but the Messenger because we're on the cusp of literally losing the art of public. Discourse Hoist is power. My vision is to change the world through voice.

I will definitely definitely couple exercises would be good.

There's there's tons and tons of people that are in the same space as many of us in our fields and end stand out Everybody's trying all these different things. That aren't quite frankly making standout at all. But if you have a warm warm trusting conversation with somebody and I love the fact how you you mentioned. Just don't spew out numbers but talk about why these numbers is matter you know in this could be a corporate space when you're talking about expansion opportunities or potentially readjustments of how the organization is yes but explaining to him the reason why were winding down this operation. But we're going to expand and other is. These are the numbers. Here's how we came to these numbers. Here's what we see is going to happen and what that does is it. It gives people that are in there.

"Hello. This is me. She yousef. And this is tell them I am. In twenty fifteen I went on a road trip from Chicago to Wisconsin. And we went like really far north. Like I think the nearest people to us were a hundred miles away, which now that I think about it was probably a dangerous situation. Anyway, it was stunning if you haven't been to Wisconsin, you're seriously missing out. So it was late summer like early fall. And as we get deeper into the night, it starts to get really chilly, kind of Chris, and in the middle of the night, I go out into the backyard of the house. We're staying and the night is so block that I had to just stand there for a second. Try to find my way. And after a while my eyes start to adjust and there's this brightness remember looking up at the sky, the stars were clear and more crowded than I had ever seen before. It was honestly like the stars where the crowd at a concert, and I was. Onset or something? And I swear I could see the curve of the sky, it was like I was wrapped in almost. It was so literally beyond my reach like forget figuratively. I felt so small in a good way. So the next morning, I'm sitting inside on the couch with my breakfast. The sun is, like, especially bright, the kind of right? That even if it's cold to kind of just warms you up. And there's the dust in the air and for a second. The sunlight, set this crowd of dust dancing. And I felt so small. My name is Vanessa all in the end. I am an astronomer. I think that is the primary way that identify myself when I, meet new people.

And then I would kind of be like, oh, but I think it is. So they like, they'd say, well, go ahead, try it, and then I would try it, and it wouldn't be a good idea. And they come back like see.

So he was taking a medication for a rheumatoid arthritis treatment, the medicine was I N, H, I, E so Nisaan and it's known to be extremely toxic. We were not told that my dad was prescribed his medications, so he was told to take this six month course of I h and when he was done with the six months course than he could come back to start his Arthur treatment, well, five months in my dad's sorta getting extremely sick. I is getting very confused. And then one day he woke up and was just completely yellow like completely jaundiced. His is really his skin was yellow. And we took him to the to his primary didn't it turned out. He was having liver failure. Annan ver- when I heard that he was having liver failure.

Put the fake mouth back on. All this visible scar tissue. Oh yeah. But my sister because my sister I did not get along, but we loved the same. It's so sad because I'm sure. Did you brother like have loved the same stuff course? We could have been. Hey, you connect on so many things, but it's just not enough. We used to figure out the the harmony on cartoon on like Saturday morning, cartoon jingles, and then redo rework. Last songs to like be parodies like we were like five and six Pinna comedy team. You know. Echos getting away. You guys know you've been in group. Five and six. She, you know, drugs got involved. What are your favorite shows that you're a member from that time or like watching the color that you loved rainbow? Bright. Oh, see. I was never interim Mowbray. I think it was like a couple years before my time. We're like I missed it, but I always liked how it looked on things. It's like it's just asset for chilled yet. So cute. That must have been in my face. 'cause I remember that from early on, but early on, I was also a turn in hindsight aggressively hetero normative where I would have said that's gay or for girls it. Yeah, and I missed out on so much. Even Arthur I thought was for that's corny. I need like my cartoons need to have guns and robots is so boring. Show. Anything happens every no one ever dies. I didn't even know that I'm just like, oh, they're always shooting random bullets at each other and no one ever dies. I don't know how true for kids shows now, but I have a friend who wrote who's in the children's, whatever into Chiltern. He's into the children's entertainment side of things, and he's normal. But. He said that there are certain things that you can't put on TV shows that you wouldn't ever think about like you can't show people going under the sink for things. Yes. Oh, because then kids will want to go under there and gets the poison. Stuff that you're just like, well, what if what, if it's a show about a rat lives in kitchen. You can't. First of all, don't steal that idea that is might yes really good, but kitchen. It's week, but he's not a chef. Rags drinks. Real index out of a bowl is funny. Like what. What. But but all the stuff. But with GI Joe and even thunder cats, that stuff was super violent. It was. Yeah, but also also nothing happened.
