Disrespect: There’s No Other Way to Describe How Little the Biden Administration Thinks of the American People

"The New York Post editorial board had posted a great editorial. It's fairly brief. But honing in on that word disrespect, the post writes, there's no other way to describe how little the Biden administration and Democrats in general think of the American people. Asked about secret late night shuttling of illegal immigrants to various parts of the country. White House spokesperson Jen Psaki made a joke about the flight times saying they were earlier than you might like. Ashton got a supply chain crisis, upsetting the economy and driving up inflation. She quipped that it was the tragedy of the treadmill that's delayed. Americans care about how many illegals are being led into the country. The White House crew doesn't care. It's not a law or rule. They want to enforce. Americans care about whether they'll be able to buy holiday gifts and how much they're paying for groceries. Democratic officials don't care, it doesn't affect them, Psaki thinks you're waiting on a peloton when you're trying to feed your kids. How infuriatingly insultingly out of touch they are. Writes the New York Post editorial board. So Kamala Harris takes a jet and a gas guzzling SUV to lecture us about climate change. President Biden wished for scolds us about COVID, then walks maskless through a restaurant. The rules aren't for them, of course. And the media wonder, who are the deplorables who vote against these betters? Who would reject this obviously superior course? Who will kick the Democrats out of their majority next fall? The post says it's that great swath of America that is sick of being patronized by these arrogant elites. It's not a joke, Jen Psaki, no one is

And so that was the small patrol. Anna was doubly fortunate because these were small patrol base. they're still connected with university units. And actually you were given quite a lot of autonomy. Tiny shifts coming back four or five university coastal students of about seventy five and small budget and he spent some of utah. The university somebody to time driving this small shit and it was a fantastic experience. But i the leadership pace. I think every job being in a hat that leadership role sometimes they are more distinct with this title called command where you have additional responsibilities and the very much stops with you but every job i've been in i think has been a leadership experience and a leadership vacation off of leading and serving the people under me in order to get things done and you talk about commend.

"But there are i think the tenets of mission command of what entails and the faith and trust you put somebody lower down. They will be as -ation and that they will be able to do a better job than you trying to manage. Lead us at the at the higher level is still very true and then there are certain parts of our organization where that a supremely trip. If i take a submarine service at if you take the nuclear deterrent will by nature. The submarine leave success with some very clear orders and ideally doesn't patrol of several months without submarine nether brutal costs to say where it might be. We note specifically whether supreme any has the authority and the trust in what is important security responsibility. So that's what still very alive to us. But i recognize with the absence of phenomenal communications. I think there's a challenge for all of us. The most senior leaders had we give people the time and space. Because they will do better than us constantly interfering. Tell me about your role. So you've been firstly lordship of the naval staff since twenty nine thousand nine hundred responsible to the secretary of state for fighting effectiveness efficiency and morale and that really sums it up. It's the operational excellence. You've got to hit the numbers and there's the huge hr role there. How do you view that. How do you deploy yourself with that. Big trae the first one is a huge privilege. And i think there's something about also joining the row. Not being weighed down with. Tim imitated by substantial role. And particularly when you're running a service which has these other facets which is you are a your cost of the constitution. You are institution in iran ryan. You have this incredible historical legacy. There's a danger that you can keep looking back and feel weight down by a mentally have always tried to. This is a huge privilege. But don't be intimidated by and actually try and enjoy it. Because i think that then plays into how you actually conduct yourself in the role. I think then when you get to. What does it entail cool. It is about delivering the nation through the secretary of state said that we can help keep this nation safer and more prosperous. We fulfill our gt. And that might be a very dangerous and precarious times but you turn up on. You're ready for that. And that involves human element as we discussed. And you've met the moral component that people are willing to fight and do this extraordinary thing which oldest union for which is prepared to put their lives on the line and again when we talk about the fundamentalism of what does it mean to be uniform than that to me is something that we have to recognize is an extraordinary responsibility that we have. And it's an extraordinary thing that we do on behalf of the nation under these special commissions that we have at your being in uniform. And then you've got the constituent parts that go with that so these amazing men women and then you train them and then you equip them and then you exercise and then you go in the world and you you project your force a older to try to meet government zan's but you also have to run the institution Jiji touched on is budgets.

Thirty thousand personnel. Read or heard somewhere recently. I think you might have said it or it's something that said about the navy. Everyone is meant to be a leader. But there are only some commanders. And i'm just interested in that idea if you could impact that how you bring your people and bring them on and then they self select themselves and feed up through the organization will thank you james i. I'm not sure i would find that. Everybody's a leader. I think there are leaders under a followers and we talk of an enormous team and we have this large team and his family of smaller teams within the organization. But i do think there is something very special which applies not just to the royal navy. But i think to all of our armed forces which is the quality of the men and women that we have in uniform and some of that is self selection. Some it is selection. Some of it send the training and experiences and the culture and the ethos that we have that engineers the qualities that we want to bring. And therefore i think what i'm trying to disrupt the area so there are some things that are intrinsic to the individuals that we have their event some things that the organization bring out and then we build on that anti heart it is deeply hus- north human traits that we drew upon which is how we interact with other people in order to get things done. And how do you do that. In a manner that he's tend to be successful and then he get back to school the notion off a single individual in charge of a ship or submarine and individuals in charge of various elements of that ship or submarine at each of them needing leadership role and everybody needs to understand. What is the purpose on bullet that ship or submarine that then is part of how it's defined culture a leadership style and it exists equally in our show rose with a royal marines. And i'm with without aviators but it's founded in that ship identity and the leadership style that we have seen over hundreds of years and that ship identity. I guess that really drove on that. You need to have that sense of tony because if you are out there in the middle of the ocean it is down to. You is the leader of the team. It as and i think all of us in the armed forces talk about mission Moms which is senior leaders saying what they want to be done in to be achieved and giving the morgan alita the leeway as to hire.

People didn't understand that. Moore's law essentially said that computing power would be infinite and so the best way to think about it was to say okay.

You did what you said you wanted to do. You folded your passion. You got into the sports industry through the sportswear companies in the footwear company. So kind of observing it from the flip side of way on now and puma. I think you looked after the relationship. Maybe struck the relationship with usa and then prior to that you are very closely linked to the all blacks in your addidas time. I'm just interested in what you get from being close to such fantastic elite performance. Yeah if you look at both of those. I mean you saying built was a freak. Strange situation of puma wear puma had repositioned itself more was a fashion brand as opposed to a sports performance. Brian now. But i think to reverse that a bit and have stronger performance credentials But they had the wills most marketable athlete and really. They went doing much about him. They weren't using him in any way. He didn't even have a new pair of spikes for the two thousand twelve olympics so we then took a different approach and focused on him and built pergama around commercializing and promoting you same boat athlete to drive the brand in that. That was really interesting. I think he was fascinating. The sense of his ability to cross over seventy different areas. He wasn't just an athlete. Is the presence in music. His transparency in his accessibility on media was huge and he was fascinated. What with many of the all blacks which unfortunately the most successful rugby franchise in the world and probably successful sporting franchise and that there i think is all about culture. It's all about they talk about the jersey. They talked about leaving it in a better place they talk about the pipeline of talent from those interactions with them. It was a great experience. Main other things to learn from as them being the top in sport and in their discipline net chosen area..

Since in your country about signs and results structure we need to have better pathways in place visa bit of succession planning in place need to identify bedroom. Fled the talent around the country and we should be consistently winning matches. I think rugby world cup is probably one of the hottest tournaments in the will to win. You need a bit of luck. It's incredibly tense. You have seven matches to play in a relatively short period of time in your in some really fierce competition so you have to maximize the probability of doing very much focused on that as well. Do you take that criticism on the chin bill because you can be held accountable for someone fumbling a tackle not getting something across the line on the pitch.

That's true but it's in sport. There's almost an element of you can't always explain rationally and the almost make your own luck and things assess out well and you've got the right processes in place and you are controlling the things you can control in a much better way.

And then you have a situation where there are such fine margins sort this year decisions. Go against you all the bounce. The ball goes against your just doesn't seem to feel right. And i think you make your own as you referred to it you played as an amateur. I mean does do the job ever come close to running down the line. Which do you prefer those days quite distant.

We should still have pushed myself to a little bit further in the game but no those playing days gone but it's it is a privilege to work in the sport must passionate about and you get some incredibly rare experiences..

"All do sell your rights for more money. But you know it's going behind a paywall enough. You're restricting some of the viewership you having name but all of the money that we make is invested back into the game. We don't have shareholders. Don't pay dividends anywhere else and where membership organization sold of the money that we make is invested directly back into both the performance of the community game. So it's important to have a drone commercial and successful commercial operation For the game to be prosperous in the game to continue to grow and how has the the pandemic zinke will impact on elite performance over the next couple of years. So it's been quite difficult with with no crowds and we. Maybe we underestimated the impact. It has for players coming out into a stadium. This crabs i think in terms of elite performance. It'll impact elite performance practices in the pathway. And how we prepare for competitions going forward. I think that will remain the same. I do think that will bounce back. Perhaps quicker than most people realized. I'm getting a sense. A real palpable sense of some real Designed to get back to watching matches and you look at our ticket. Sales for next year's six nations already the third a high level of the stage and they count in the have been previously. I think people looking forward to getting back.

"Two men's women's team competing in international competition. So you can go to make sure. That's okay any have community game which is not sure what's going on and you have to try and provide as much easy can in a very uncertain environment so you have a range of different challenges. And so i think you said in the report and you talk about those lost revenues. It will have ramifications for for years to come so i wonder what will happen differently in english rugby. And how you've had to adapt your plan. Your style of leading. We've made changes to the organizational structure. Unfortunately have to do that. So we have to take a of cost out of the system when you lose that amount of revenue in the short term. And then you have to respondent some way so one hundred nineteen redundancies in august last year. Which is very painful. You losing colleagues who frankly leaving the organization through no fault of their own in many cases in most cases winning so that was quite difficult. I think there's a huge number of positives though in silver linings this whole situation up productivity has gone through the roof. I mean within twenty rows monster. Twenty third lockdown that monday and almost immediately you have to deal with an organization that was working in tiny remotely hundred percent the organization working remotely nobody in twickenham apart from a skeleton staff to stadium in twenty four hours. We set up nine separate working groups that capital various different aspects of the business whether it be communications financial engagement with government united. But we bought it tonight in groups and we realized very quickly that we couldn't over communicate so the number of calls per day to make sure everyone was checking in. See what we were only situation. But that's led to a high degree of trust and delegation. I wasn't perhaps the greatest fan of working from home on a friday. And i was always very cynical when people have food poisoning on a monday morning that i think what's happened now. Is that you have to delegate and we doing things differently but very much won't outcome driven less process driven more flexible and those working practices will carry on when we get back to something like Sounds like you're trusting. Everyone a bit more. It's exactly the right word. i mean you. You can't candidly really self. I perhaps maybe a little bit more hands on than maybe should have been tended to be that way. You have to delegate you have to trust people get things done. You have to have more communication to make sure that everyone knows the direction rule heading in Rolls onto country tools. That then you have to be hands off untrusted Thankfully out say virtually across the board. That's the case for us so it's been a really good experience. What are the next couple of years. Look like as we try to get back to some sense of normality. There will be more games played but those lost revenues. Don't replace himself. So i guess that has to filter down into the investment decisions you take now in in the coming months. We're in pretty good shape and we will still invest into the game moving any of the union in the world and we've made the necessary justice. Take down cost. It'll probably take three to four years. I think to get back to what we were previously but will still be able to invest into the game in the way that we want to will be at slightly lower levels in that. We're actually in pretty good financial shape. A number of things have happened in the interim period. We have debenture wave program which wins the venture whole nocentini wave long-term debt which is seventy five years atten. We had a very good positive low response to that. So we're actually in pretty good shape..

34: GANGS, Crime and MENTAL HEALTH

"Hello cruel world. I am your host for a psych for sore minds. My name is dr shahad. Madonna's consultant forensic psychiatrists. I live in here in london. I assess mentally disordered offenders. So you don't have to so. This episode is part to a three part series about gangs last episode. I told you about real life case of a gang related murder of a teenager by another group of teenagers. this episode. i'm gonna tell you something a bit. Different something unusual. I'll tell you about a young man. Who assessed who is the target of a local gang and he became mentally unwell in the next episode part three. I'm going to tell you about another case where i'm pre show again exploited a vulnerable young man and they got him to do that dirty work on half and he ended up with a very serious weapons related charge. But first let's make this educational are going to very quickly. Talk to you about why gangs commit violence. So there were several reasons. It could be to protect their territory from the gangs for example in drug dealing hot spots. It could be to enforce the collection debts. Obviously the mark is more likely to pay up. If there's potential pressure and violence coming from dozens of people in all directions and other reason would be to extort money so that's usually a local businesses or shops and can be nightclubs. Casinos with the offer of protection from other gangs are trying to do. the same. Another reason might be to respond to a slight to a gang member whole to the entire guy. That's how boys start and also to keep the status up in the community and to be feared because gangs only work if they have fear in the territory. We all this. We've all seen wire. Finally another reason might be protecting owner of a gang member or their family and to prove the gangs toughness especially to establish themselves in the hierarchy of a prominent position in again in fact. Violence is so serious that in some gangs they a blood in blood out policy so blooded means that to get into the gang in the first place you have to really hurt somebody and some gangs yet ashton. Kill somebody to get a blood out. Means you have to give a written confirmation within the two week cooling-off period of starting the contracts. only kidding. it means the only of the gang is by death. In terms of forensic psychiatry. We do see gang members once in a while they quite rat but roughly quite kind of limited in our ability and our resources to do much about it. After the person's discharge refer them onto other specialised agencies substance. The work with the police who offer gang members away out the obviously that needs to motivation from the individual and it can equal a death sentence in some gangs as per behalf of mentioned very decisive blood out policy. While patients are in patients when they're in our secure frenzy hospitals. We can control the visited that they have and we can control the access certain people so usually what would happen would be that. The social worker within our multidisciplinary team they would do a background check for anybody that's permitted to be a visitor to the patient. Says they have gang affiliations abba criminal record. For example we can in some cases stop that or prevent that is also eventually further down there rehabilitation when patients have lead outside our hospitals. Sometimes the forensic psychiatrist might specify like an exclusion zone in the legal documentation for lee which means the patient isn't allowed into certain areas so this could be where the index offense was committed to that bump into their victims or in rare cases that can be the entire gang operates. Obviously what a patient's escorted leave with members of staff. This is easy to enforce and leave can be stopped if somebody breaks the rules that the unescorted leave when our the road. We have to have an element of trust. Obviously and if a patient does break will such as seeing that gang associates that we can study so clearly. This is not a long-term solution only limits their contact with gang members whilst they're in a hostile. It doesn't help them after that discharge before we move on. I'd like to tell you a little bit more about my tunnel. So i post regular videos. Your host dr shahani diaz. I'm a consultant. Forensic psychiatrist and i assess rehabilitates mentally disordered defendants tabloids might call the criminally. So i d my assessments in prisons and ports insecure psychiatric concern for the high risk patients. I also as an expert witness to advise judges in criminal trials. This youtube channel. You're watching dissect. A whole range mental health topics most of them in some way related to violence funding.

"Up to receive them. It is ten after six. Just got in my car. I am heading over to my hospital where i have an eight o'clock appointment to get my cova vaccine this morning. My colleague dr jen ashton practising gynecologist waited to receive her vaccine an essential frontline worker. Dr ashton still perform surgeries at our hospital. I literally felt like i won the lottery hurt joyful mood infectious. Some waiting even working out into holiday. Cheer i'm right handed so i'll do left on the relief of finally getting vaccinated indescribable. I just feel incredibly fortunate. I didn't realize until that needle in my arm. How much fear and concern. I had suppressed all year as i continued to take care of patients. It was incredible. And now we're incredibly fortunate. To have dr jen ashton chief medical correspondent with us now jen. I know you've had a history of severe allergic reactions. How are you feeling just hours after taking the vaccine. Any side effects physically. Do i feel totally fine. I do a history of severe allergic reaction to food. And i had my epi pen ready. Obviously i was in a safe environment. And i was monitor for thirty minutes and my risk of allergic reaction was much much lower than my risk of covid so for me. It was an easy decision.

Do the celebrities help the startups or do the startups help the celebrities?

"So this week. We saw that josh richards. Who is a tiktok star previously of the sway house which is one of the many tiktok mansions that have kind of popped up over los angeles as influence or homes. Josh richards is joining remiss capital and early stage venture firm as a venture partner. And as i'm sure we will get into not super nudist see celebrities get into venture space. They have huge reach. They can do a lot for especially consumer businesses with a simple instagram story. And so maybe the place to start with with the josh richards. Conversation is like really bullish on this transition. What would we say like what is good about this transition and then we can make the jokes because i know there will be jokes. But let's start with why this makes sense. Alex i okay. I have been critical in the past of celebrity investing. Because it's always struck me as little bit frivolous but i think that's because i underestimated the cultural impact of people of the moment and according to iverson will group text that i'm on with my friends. Talk is the thing. So if you are an enormous star in the tiktok world getting you involved with the company makes a lot of sense and my thought here is that i think in the old as we go to see more endorsements opposed to investments. You know you'd say like we're going to get you know josh richards or charlie delio or bryce. I'm reading the notes price hall to endorse your party to the long tail of knowledge for tiktok star. I see tiktok. But i don't know who the people are because i'm not cool at all but i think now with took being so popular and having so much cultural resonance with people that are out there using their dollars so in mark influence. It's probably reasonable that these people are going from being endorsers to be invested because once they have more money themselves and they have enough power deployed demand a seat at the table to get some ups. I did a piece of the pie. So i want to make jokes but i won't. I'll just say that in the past celebrity has had a mixed track record. But in this case. I think bringing attention via celebrity and tiktok makes sense. Okay danny leterrier pros and cons. And then i will finish this off. I think the big question is always do. The celebrities helped startup or the startups helped the celebrities. I think some celebrities have made a lot of money on their investments by think in many ways celebrities get access and in in many ways. I'm not sure they actually create the value for these companies. But because of the celebrity status they sort of get an allocation the otherwise it wouldn't have been able to get you know obviously if you're having a startup the targets gen z. Tiktok is the platform to go about do that. I just don't think it helps anyone else you know i. I just think about the company's like okay. Let's let's hope about sky flow. You know this is the polymorphic. Encryption data security company. Get josh richards to help. On what i'm kidding. Of course not so its seat and that's ultimately like you know. I think it's always about these brand plays. I'm in new york. We have a ton of successful brand plays because of the so like may richards endorses bro. And its next round and is like the the next to the guy in the commercials. I forget which the famous movie stars was on there. No one knows that this group. We're not that demographic. Danny this is where the show. We're just taking a right to the gutter. I think they're definitely serves. They can use this. I think it's fine to venture partner. Josh has been very entrepreneurial and getting a bunch of stuff out there. But what i've heard. The guy makes f ton of money saving our producers gave them work there but a ton of money doing all these sponsorship deals. I think it's fine. I just think we have to like not change coverage and we focused on in which companies make money based on which celebrities are attached to which companies like. It's always good to go back to the dollars and sense and so. I don't think it changes what we do here at techcrunch. I'm certainly not going to cover story. I actually been pitched stories. That are like gosh. Richards has invested in this company. I was like. I don't know who that is. Take this to not work in my experience talking to celebrities in and around technology events. More broadly i talked to a former doctor who about surface once that was a fiasco but i did. Enjoy my child with jared leto at a boxing event because one. I got to take a picture with him. I was topless now funny and to he actually had some pretty good he is about starts so i think there is the occasional investor who's also celebrity. Who can do some reasonable things. I'm curious to see how this bears out. Ashton kutcher is investments. Have been up and down. So we'll see. But i'm not going to be dismissive of the kids.

"You try. To. Come back. It's Farren Talons. Indeed Clark Ashton, Smith the maker of Gargoyles. I really like that story and it has a history with me. But I I've got to tell you that snuck in an I've switched off the washing machine and the tumble dryer so much in having a washing machine tumble dryer in your recording studio. But the truth is the listener I don't have a recording studio. This is my front room. Switched them off for a little bit. Okay. So Clark Ashton Smith was born in eighteen ninety three Long Valley California and he died in California nineteen sixty one is insane too much gone outside California. But then who would if you lived in California? He began as a poet and road decadent overblown romantic poetry and he was on the West Coast Romantics like Swinburne and he was well supported and recognized unease youth as a poet and he was loved by lovecraft. And with Robert e Howard and of craft himself was one of the big three writers ultimately of the Weird Tales magazine Ray Bradbury was also fun and we've done a couple of Ray Bradbury Stories Am I. was recently reading Ray Bradbury's something wicked. This way comes, which is a very appropriate for this time of yet coming up to Halloween. And the language, there is very often blown and poetic Y-. I think either like the kind of language or you don't I was reading some reviews if action Smith stuff and some people struggle with his language and he is. Absolutely, answer lovecraft not anti lovecraft of the same school as lovecraft air to pope perhaps interestingly, this a little bit of A. Chain because Poe wrote, he's post of and he was loved by Shah's Baudelaire the French decadent poet who translated Poe into French, and then an clock Ashton Smith was a big fan of child Baudelaire in his turn. So this this chain of overblown decadence of them is it sense you'll essential. In any case this vein of sensationalist decadence comes right through. He was quite explicit that he used his language house. A calls it a kind of verbal black magic and it was to enchant with kind of incantation the using the rhythms of the words. So I like that kind of thing. So I appreciate that many people don't many people go with. The Hemingway and George Orwell's School of the bright plan. Right plan ladder I don't think either democracy spoke lined up in them can imagine if they did. They would. Yeah. That doesn't make sense rated and he he's got some great words vans for wings I thought they were Kinda sneakers, vans and ferron which have commented on my spellcheck I. Didn't know that either. It means feral its version of Farrell really savage an untamed and he's towards like trouble Asli and instead of sentencing TNC and also loo lubricants. I actually read it I as Luke Bricusse. But it's actually lubricates which is having come across before but there we are. So he began to write poetry from the edge with eleven and his first novel fourteen. He began to sell stories h seventeen to black count magazine. Amazing as influences were the Arabian. Nights. NECAS say the fairytale stuff. Talked about Baudelaire, we liked loved brothers Grimm at Gresham Poe and the Gothic classic such as Vasic. He was unwell for a period and we have this idea of these decadent sickly people. He was only sixty sixty one when he? No, we got married only sixty, but it didn't live. Up. Sixty eight. So that's not to answer. Depends on how old you are but do you think that's too bad or not? If he twenty Nassau too but If you fifty nine, you think but anyway, he got married at sixty one and set up his house in. Pacific, Grove with the Carolyn Jones. Doorman who was publicist and in Hollywood you know he he helped with her three kids. So it wasn't any nurse these parents when they were ill. So He's actually one of these guys who seems alright. Really he seems probably skeletons in the cupboard could have really gotten. He corresponded with Lovecraft, Jack London Ambrosius Times. Am One of the things that lovecraft does. Is With. The zillow mythos is allows of the writers and actually encourages a circle of weird tale writers to use these worlds and actually am they grow organically and they do not always consistent because obviously they're not going to be different right is using the inspiration and that kind of bothers people who like to codify things. So some people want the Casula mythos like the Tolkien mythos be very precise. The token mythos is only precise because tolkien wrote it nobody else but the Catholic mythos is like spreading tehnical based. UVA Roy, N- where this is set. Smith has various settings at one of them is severe on I loved this as a kid. I of all of them Robert e Howard I thought was a bit preposterous. I was recently listening to the HP literary podcast and you should check out because it's really really funny with Chad Five, Chris Markey and they did the coin of the coast by Howard and. But they had been stitches. And lovecraft I. Like. But Prefer Ashton Smith particularly operation they signed do with some medieval French kingdom surrounded by where will wanted forest. And I think the thing he did really well in the story is this religious panic and we've seen them in our own time I'm they and they go through history people get this idea that something is being caused by you know in this case, black magic or whatever the satanic panics the you know the blood libel that the Jewish people recused of these crazy ideas that people stopped believe and then panic and then take extreme action and get very because they're anxious. They are I'm not making any references to our own times about plagues of black magic or just plagues moving among us and making people very frightened and doing and making people kind of fall out with each other really. Anyway I again. Retreat from any social commentary. So the other thing about Ashton Smith is he is not afraid of sensual famous I. Mean there is a sexiest light sexual element with the what's the name Nicolette in this with her tight? Apple Green dress showing follow curves NARCAN. Imagine lovecraft Woulda gone into apparently. Ashton Smith he said. was formed of Female Company sensuality. So there you go. The other thing I wanted to say is there is a little bit of a character in this isn't the Almond Reynard. Visit this it is actually quite interesting. Man Reynard goes from being obliged to actually trying to make up for when he realizes what he's done by creating these Goguadze tries to make up for it and falls to his death. nicolette lives. So that's actually positive. So there's a too positive things. Reynard becomes a better man even though he dies and Nicolette lives. So some of the Horace wouldn't have those two tilt does two things.
