Watch reason most of all land rights give people more than just title over property there source of security source of dignity and the means were livelihood a constitution guarantees to all its citizens the right to life under article twenty one which includes not only the right to survive but a life with dignity which also includes the right livelihood. The supreme court has also held the right to adequate. Housing is a human right and a fundamental right to be read into article twenty one. The constitution also guarantees protection from arbitrary state action under article fourteen. Which is the right way quantity and this is also the right routinely violated when forcible evictions are conducted without following basic due process. So i certainly believe that. Land rights are inherently tied to the fundamental rights. Our constitution grants us and they need to be looked at through that lens. I think it's very important to understand that. The people at greatest risk of eviction and demolitions are also some of the most marginalized people in the country who live in settlements whether land rights are not formalized not recognized and who can easily be labeled as encroachers so the impact that an eviction drive or demolition drive has multiply it results. In destruction of bosnia property on regularized. Small businesses in these areas are also demolished with no alternative accommodation or alternative employment.

How led dakota huge was in touch parading of the causing Dramatically field for me stugotz or providing affordable housing since nineteen fifty six years Now becky boo who come to the city hall livelihood Has to find is to live. And then they end up being with including former about because because both the market the realistic market and the government don't provide them with any of her blouse and the market is usually in a mood of of On opponent all being a brutal Looking for ten or they land actually usually. These settlements are located decline or some private land In formerly that have been based raised up from scratch off and on on inhabitable unnavigable language has been made habitable by people were than eventually you'll find them for instance On the banks of nine dollars he will hang settlements. The next day we in pony jewelry Kind of what is considered uninhabitable wasteland. People and people in habitable. Because that's the only they have who attempts to have Perspective about work of about people live in in these settlements Because of lack of affordable lousy and then a back problem then you will see that there is still clear that is market failures in thing that issue and then therefore when you come menu combat to If you consider questions of justice equity of the show becomes komo balanced. Nice look at the report of some of the other. Recent demolishing and in the country in delhi alone have been too big demolishing drives issue one in september whether faridabad district administration began demolishing driver deli. Emc as jomaa colony which was situated on rally land and then one more in july acting on the orders of the supreme court. The faridabad minister cooperation also demolished at least twelve thousand houses belonging mostly to daily workers in corrigo several weeks prior to the eviction authorities also cut a water and electricity supply to the colony. Some residents who continue to live among the rubble of the demolished houses have reportedly asked for speedy habitation as they have nowhere to go now looking at these reports one might wonder what about the right to live with. Dignity is then no legal protection for marginalized landless people manage says that the link between livelihoods and housing have been constitutionally recognized for longtime in indian jurisprudence and has been held in high court around the country as well but only in cases where the affected had the means to approach the court the link between of livelihoods and housing has been conspicuously. That could names for the longtime indian jurisprudence britain's so in nineteen eighty six seven skis court older tellers versus the state Land an activist olga tenders showing before the supreme court has came Relief for some pavement-dwellers in bombay were thought to be good by the onto penalty In the middle of the month and the court held that Even the even the pavement dwellers will get impede with directly life under africa. Un which had been wrecked by the supreme court going through not just sort of basic distance but also that i could dignifies which includes many aspects of such likelihood and held their Displays them Suddenly without notice would be in violation of his aac and that there was a basic minimal procedural sadness that had to be shown them even if they were occupying public space of knickknack which was caucasian And this has been a paid by Some high quotes around the country But this is all of this happened to give the affected by these. You're going to go and And in many ways addiction And demolition those affected are always the poorest most marginalized people belonging to much groups into safety that with most of the affected people healing from marginalized communities. Im- majority of them. Don't have the access to seek help and claimed tradition as a result the echelon report also points out that an overwhelming majority of people evicted in twenty twenty did not receive any kind of rehabilitation from the government g. Settlement of paschel resettlement of some amount of compensation was provided in only thirteen percent of the documented cases of eviction in twenty twenty four which information is available. Mukta she also elaborates more about this problem. Number of legislations under which evictions are carried out even these legislations which are completely inadequate in terms of procedural protection during the actual action or rehabilitation for example even these legislations contain the principles of basic due process which include a prior notice of eviction the opportunity for the occupant to be heard and for there to be a fair decision making process to determine whether the eviction is even ridiculous. Odd data shows that this basic due process is also routinely violated so from the land conflict database. It can be seen that complaints against procedural violations have been made by affected communities in over forty one percent of conflicts were forced evictions. Have deacon please. If these due process safeguards were designed in a meaningful manner and shutting the dryer notices given that the occupants have the option of adequate representation at the hearing it would go a long way in easing the very real harm that has caused by the constant looming threat of eviction. So now given all these factors. What kind of safeguards are necessary to ensure that affected people. Don't have the social security snatched away due to fictions and demolitions manchester while legal networks do provide assistance to affected people. Evictions should be a- last-resort good sometimes come from the lawyers who have been associated with the have an organization representing people from these often are often that is very routine of community of communication from the gun or something. You'd like relevance will just wake up to find notices bistro bagels the lucky ones Have been instances like they have woken up. The ones even with this is Do often do these networks Often go up on s- and then There has been paying good making the british. That have been who whom the policy reputable And this is notifying and and they put it in. The court will stay order asking okay. Ok- soviet cases before the larger question for a big onto the magic. Listen i think is. I mean i think it depends on largely on the innings on the initiatives of so a government that is humanitarian abandoning. This kind been so these people these places as equal citizens win that into consideration And we often say of every.

May God Be Glorified (Psalm 74:22)

"Some chapter seventy four verse. Twenty two arise o. God defend your cause. Remember how the foolish scoff at you all day. So this this psalm is an interesting follow up to psalm. Seventy three which we prayed through yesterday. So psalm seventy three talked about the prosperity of the wicked and the psalmist found refuge comfort in the fact that he could be near god that we are near god. He loves us and leads us and guides us. And then you get to psalm. Seventy four and you see a similar depiction of the injustice of the world the prosperity of the wicked and specifically even the prosperity of those who scoff at god the success so to speak in the world of people who mock god who are enemies of god and who hurt gods people in different ways and in this psalm. We hear this theme. it's encapsulated really in verse. Twenty two arise. Oh god defend your cause remember how the foolish scoff at you all the day and other words yes. It is right in assam. Seventy three kind of way. Just to find refuge in god personally in a world where the wicked prosper in different ways and it is good to call out to god for him to show his justice and him to show his glory and him to show his righteous rule and reign in the world to bring an end to injustice to bring an end to scoffing at his name to bring an end ultimately to injustice in the world.

The Role of Consumer Payments Products in Healthcare with Greg Boulton

"Welcome back to the outcomes. Rocket saul marquez's here. And today i have the privilege of hosting greg. Bolton he's a corporate development executive with experience in the financial technology industry who has spent the last ten years focused on payments and payments products in the healthcare space. We are going to be discussing the impact that the financial industry technology and products can have on improving healthcare delivery knowing all the challenges that exist in how we pay for healthcare. I think today's discussion with greg is going to be a really interesting one. And so with that I wanna i wanna give you a warm. Welcome to the podcast greg. Thanks so much for joining today Absolutely so you have been focused on basically how we pay for things in healthcare. Greg what has been your inspiration to spend the time that you have in the sector. sure So i came to the healthcare space from financial services industry specifically looking at payments products so credit cards data cards prepaid cards and in a lot of respects. The industries have a lot cinemax celebrities. They're obviously very critical industries and services they deliver a critical the lives of our members our customers and inherently complicated products plex but in many ways we sort of felt like the defense industry had maybe made faster inroads into bringing automation and customization to our products in the national services industries coming into healthcare really looking for opportunities to streamline and make participating in engaging in healthcare easier for the members so And that sort of dovetail with the health care industry really getting more deeply into consumer directed health care and focusing on the members decision making and the rule that plays in healthcare and so we really saw those industries coming being well aligned a lot of the financial products in the healthcare space. Not really been around that long. Very first tax advantaged accounts around healthcare. We're in the very late nineties. Really got going early two thousand so one of the things that we did early on was to try and attach a card to assam these tax advantaged products. And make it easier for administrators to move the money and also for the members understand what they're spending and make it reduced amount of paperwork in manual actions required for them to take advantage those tax advantaged accounts. It's interesting in your right there so much that has happened in finance that just sped past healthcare and in i had a. I had an interview several months ago with the chief medical our chief information officer at phillips and he came from citibank all the innovations that they were taking advantage at citibank. Now they're getting leveraged by phillips in that company and so there's a ton that we can learn from the financial industry and so talk to us a little bit about some of those things greg and And maybe how this particular approach can add value to what we're doing in healthcare. Well i think some of the things that we've been engaging with a lot of course as i mentioned automation and debts really almost entirely contingent on standardization through a lot of advantages services. Industry has had compared to health care. There's much higher level of standardization and the bodies that would create maintain both system rules as well as as the legal constructs behind all that allowed enforcement of rules. Were so much stronger in the financial services area than they've been in healthcare so in the initial services we've had visa and mastercard had nachon had a very prescriptive. A central planning operates nash services and that's allowed all of the companies to code robustly to bill very robust infrastructure around a data said and mediation standards. That didn't have a lot of variation in the healthcare space of course do have standards. But they're far looser and there's a lot more variation variation in healthcare plans and there's a lot more variation kind of diversity of approaches across the healthcare space. That makes it all much more difficult to approach but overall approach very much has been as we're going to try and create a consumer product built on a on a mountain of technology at complexity but trying shield that and make it seem as easy to consumers possible. Make that decision point. Essentially you know in the the member of the consumer is at at a point of sale. We want them to go to the wall. No which which carving out trying to keep it as simple as that and healthcare space

Ultracold Soup: Meet The 'Superfluid' States Of Matter

"Or at quang. I am ready to go back to school with you. Which honestly dreer great. We would be good lab competitive. Yeah we will be competitive but we be great together. I think and so the science concepts. We're going to unpack. Today is states of matter. You know some of those other states of matter. You didn't learn about in science class rights so the physicist i called up to explain this is martin's veer line at mit. and what. i find hilarious. How martin is he said when it comes to his own kid. He actually prefers to keep this particular science lesson. Pretty simple to assam like. Oh yeah you the gas liquid solid bam. Leave it at that you know. He's seven and states of matter is really just a way to describe how a group of particles think atoms or molecules etc move which is sort of beautiful and collective and different from what you would gifts by looking just at a single particle and changes in temperature and pressure can cause those particles to move differently and change their behavior right. We see the super easily with water. That's right in the liquid phase water molecules slip and slide past each other but we humans quickly learned that if you lower the temperature the particles slowdown bam. We see is appear and we fridges. And we're very excited about. That actually was a huge deal hundred years ago to make ice and if we go in the opposite direction heat water. The particles move faster and farther apart and eventually the h. two o. Molecules breakaway and dissipate into the air as water vapor humidity. That's right it is already a miracle in itself. Water exists in these three different states that we can see those states at temperatures that we can reach as a humans in the kitchen. But here's the thing we can only do so much in our kitchen. Speak right speakers though there. But there's a limited range of temperature and pressure that even you can achieve in your kitchen mattie and there are states of matter beyond this okay like do you remember plasma who ya. Sometimes it's called the fourth state of matter and it can happen when matter gets heated to a super high temperature like electrons rips from atoms which actually allows plasma to conduct. Electricity super cool. Lightning is plasma. Plasma is wild. It is wild. Yeah and if we were to go in the other direction to an extreme if martin son were to ask dad what can happen at a temperature much cooler than ice. Is there something else. I might start telling him about these superfluid states of matter which is exactly what martin's studies at mit these superfluids states of matter that we're long predicted but not easily observed in nature. So how many states of matter are out there. Well we don't actually know martin want to even commit to a number. When i asked him this question he actually said ouch. The is apparently no end to the series of interesting new. Twist that nature gives us to to find your states of matter. We just are digging as we speak. We're digging into this all the time and that's because in theoretical physics. You can use math to predict things that experimental physicists haven't observed yet and i say yet because in the last few decades scientists have successfully coaxed atoms under extreme laboratory conditions to enter other states of matter states that could have useful applications for future technologies awesome. Okay let's get this. Emily like how do they do. This kind of lab can had to exist for these other states of matter to emerge. I'm so glad you asked. They had to get cold. Ultra cold we work in the neno. Kelvin regime for breakfast ano- kelvin. So you might ask what so. That's actually very called. It's a billion times cold interstellar

America’s Zombie Companies Have Racked Up $1.4 Trillion of Debt

"Zombie apocalypse on wall street. Hundreds of big name companies wants american icons are now among the walking dead names like boeing carnival delta exxon macy's. They aren't making enough money to pay the interest. On the mountains of debt they feasted on during the pandemic. Nearly two hundred companies have joined the zombie ranked since march and their numbers are growing total debt obligations now nearly one point four trillion dollars. So is there any hope for the walking dead here guy. I mean what's interesting. Is that a lot of these names. They are names that we talk about trading on this show. So how should we start thinking about this before we get in the walking dead. I just want to point out. That's a great job by our crack. staff leading. With of course the cranberries zombie which is a bit of an obvious choice in the great delors. Oh reared who lost too soon. She was obviously the founder of the band wonderful vocalist. I might have gone a different direction. And maybe we could've played something like this for example. Melissa leo the crack staff is listening into the show. Why the zombies. No it's important to point out the folks at home. It's more important than actually trading our first topic in what is known as the block of the. It's not it's not more important. And i and we'll talk about the black and we'll talk about zombie companies because i think it's important and last night we mentioned macy's and you talked about one hundred dollars table. Then tim said might be the thousand dollar table. And i think collectively. We thought there was a real good chance that with test that nine fifty five level which was the june high and i think it got up to nine twenty five today on two or three times normal volume. Now's the time to be taking profits. A lotta shorts have been squeezed other companies that you mentioned delta for example. I think that's a completely different ballgame. But what i will say. This counterintuitive is. This may seem if the economy starts to get better. You would think this is good for these companies but that means interest rates economic higher. And that's going to cripple some of these companies. We talked about it last night. And i'm sure one of our guests coming out. We'll talk about that again. Tim how do you start thinking about macy's and that debt that they apparently can't service. I mean when i think about dombi i think about that thriller video and i know guys got that red leather jacket with all the zippers on it. So just just to be clear. I think when i think about those companies you just mentioned they're all they're all different in terms of their Potential to be proper zombies a great band by the way. But i think you know boeing not assam company You know it's not Boeing is a company that has the ability to raise debt. But more importantly yes. Boeing's business has been totally disrupted boeing. His burned through so much cast in the last year. And it will burn through some castro most of twenty-one but it will be free cash flow positive by twenty two in probably be neutral by the fourth quarter so calling them assam company. I think is absurd. Calling macy's zombie company is something that's at least a fair analysis although again macy's showed that free cash flow with something that they expect they're going to have in twenty twenty one two and a company that raised a lot of money To to at least be able to fight another day including having a three billion dollar asset back facility is something you don't do cartwheels over macy's position right now but the recovery there and i'm long so i've made this clear. I actually think there's more of a recovery story even though i don't think macy's gets better overnight. Delta relative to other airlines is not even close to his ambi- story dealt is actually going to start to make money towards the fourth quarter of next year and we're not talking about a normalized business. We're talking about a business where odyssey international comes under a lot of pressure. So i also just think that the fed and the role that the fed is playing here and the role that the fed will play just through talking About the bazooka in their pocket means a lot of these debt markets. Don't have a whole lot of an impact in the next six months To what people think they're gonna do. I really don't expect it so it doesn't matter that these companies zombie companies it doesn't matter that delta added twenty four billion dollars in debt since the pandemic started by baldwin. At what point do we start getting worried about that. Debt load and these companies guy made the point that if the economy gets better you would think that that'd be better for these companies that can make more money they can etc said sell more whatever they make but then interest rates go higher. So how do you weigh that. Yeah those are all interesting. Factors that keep into To keep in the front of your mind. And tim did a good job of laying out the differences of these companies. But speaking to your question right the commonality of all these of these companies that they have as you have looted to have added significant portions of the balance sheet this year and they're burning through cash at a rate and their revenues are down at rates that we just haven't seen we're talking about you know seven and a half billion dollars of cash burn and eighteen billion dollars of casper burn boeing's example seven and a half carnivals example. So you have this push pushing pull situation. What i will say is that you've seen across the board. All these companies put one thing. I right and that is runway. And so they've taken on this debts that they have enough cash to get them to their next stop in order for them to continue to be able to operate what we've seen is them trying to achieve operating leverage by reducing staff count. And that is what. I think the topic that we're kind of trying to speak to. Here's when you start slashing human capital when you stop investing in capital expenditures when you stop innovating that is what leads you to being somewhat of a dead zombie company even after you've getting on the other side of this debt service coverage ratio also something to keep in mind. You can't meet your interest. Can't meet your debt service coverage ratio. You got serious problems dan. Yeah i think bond would makes a great point there and just look at our auto industry over the last ten years and obviously gm came out of bankruptcy ten years and wiped out a lot of that debt but they had a huge government interests that was really carried along and probably hurt them a lot of different ways as far as innovation and the way the bhawan just described it. It's clearly hurt for a lot of ways and look at the auto companies are doing really well right now so i think that's a great point. The other point on this make about this is that this is the world that we live in. It's the world that a lot of parts of our planet have been looking at japan over the last thirty years or whatever and then we are going to be saddled with debt whether it's consumers whether it's sovereign balance-sheets whatever the heck it is corporates. That's just the way it is. And that's why interest rates are really never gonna meaningfully. Go up again. Because we can't service all the debt and just make one other point if you think about twenty twenty and what's happened here. Obviously the fed has done their job. They hit this crisis early to make sure that we did not have large-scale bankruptcies right of some major corporations which would really snowball the unemployment situation here but let me just tell you this here. We are now four months out from expanded unemployment benefits. Were heading into the holiday season. We're in a very rocky transition and a lame duck. Congress and there is no more fiscal stimulus for small businesses and consumers. That need it really bad. So the fact that we have a trillion dollars for a bunch of companies that were buying eighty five percent using their free cash flow to eighty five percent of their free cash flow to buy back their stock over the last five years. The airlines and we can't bail out restaurants so we can't bail out consumers that is really troubling to me. Yeah we're really tough spot right now in terms of that bridge to the other side waiting for that other side for the vaccines actually be distributed and as well as injected into the arms of americans

Pentagon to reduce troop levels to 2,500 in Afghanistan and Iraq

"Hit the Pentagon and the president announcing today that they will be officially cutting the troop levels in from Assam. In Iraq. You know? Down to 2500. Troops from 5000, and I think this is a horrible mistake. And President Trump himself as you recall. Was awesome and on fire when he was running in 2016, and he called out Hussein Obama. For announcing troop withdrawals. And saying when and where the troop withdrawals would be to give our enemy notice. He if you recall he distinctively clearly and over and over and over and over, again said, and he was right to do it. Said. I'm not gonna announce to the enemy what our strategy is what we're going to do. That's what a good commander in chief does. He doesn't announce this crap in the president. I understand it's His legacy. I understand. There's a chance he might not win this election. I understand that he wants this to be done if he doesn't have office hold office after January, 20th Should say June um 20th 2024 0. I'll give some leftist a heart attack. Had them yell the radio, but it's wrong and whether he wins a second term or not, It's wrong. It's wrong. It's wrong. It's wrong. It's wrong. It's bad policy.

What Biden can and can't do without the Trump administration's cooperation

"Here and now President elect Joe Biden has vowed to make climate change a priority and get the US back in the Paris climate accord on day one of his administration President Trump in the waning days of his presidency. Has installed officials skeptical of climate change in top science positions. Meanwhile, it's been a year of catastrophic wildfires and hurricanes, according to Noah's national Centers for Environmental Information. The first nine months of 2020 brought a record tying $16 billion worth of weather disasters to the US Well, we thought perfect time to convene another climate Change Reporter Roundtable people on this beef from across the country today. Tegan Wendland and Energy and Environment Reporter for W W. An O in New Orleans. Teegan Welcome Thanks for having me Sam. Brash is a climate reporter for Colorado Public radio in Denver. I Sam Glad to be here and rounding out our group today. Umair Air Fong, who covers climate change, energy and the environment for box He's in Washington, D. C. Umair. Thank you for being here. Thanks for having me, Robin. You going to going to start with you? Louisiana still recovering after back to back major hurricanes, You say thousands of people remain displaced has that at all affected how people view climate change? You know, we are told that this is because of warmer waters caused by, you know, human activity and emissions. Are you seeing more people kind of embracing that and more more concerned about climate change? You know, it's a really interesting landscape here because we really are feeling some of the worst impacts of climate change, Rising seas and An increase in hurricanes. We had five named storms hit the state this year. 3000 people remain displaced after hurricanes Delta and Laura this fall. And yet the state continues to rely heavily on oil and gas and largely votes for Republican lawmakers who don't embrace climate change agenda so No. Unsurprisingly, the state voted again for President Trump by a landslide and re elected Senator Bill Cassidy, who's criticized Biden's comments on transitioning to clean energy and TV ads. Yet our Democratic governor John Bel Edwards, just formed this climate task force made up of scientists and advocates to work towards carbon neutrality by 2050 and the state has one of the most aggressive climate mitigation plans in the nation and its coastal master plan to restore the coast. So Louisiana's just really a land of contradictions, Right? Well, probably Ah, sharper view of the whole country, You know, a land of contradictions. And what is something that You want to focus more on going into 2021? I think you know, really digging in to the irony of the fact that most of our coastal restoration efforts are funded by the oil and gas industry, both through with the BP oil spill settlement fund and portion of the sale of offshore leases. That's the way it's set up right now. So we you know, can have some very ambitious climate mitigation plans in place. But they're reliant on the continued success of the oil and gas industry. Right and people they're just relying on the job. So is there some sensitivity to that? Some sense of How do we help people transition? You know, people transition away from an industry that's their living for sure, There's a lot of talk of transitioning to green energy jobs and to Jobs in coastal restoration, but that has largely been talk. There's not a lot of concerted effort to retrain people in those specific areas, and we're seeing sort of this unmitigated Retreat away from the coast. With every damaging storm. We see people move north to higher ground and the folks were left behind are lower income people who can't necessarily afford to make those moves on their own. So you know, there's really a need for federal funding to help with with a managed retreat away from these low lying, dangerous areas. Yeah, Assam brash there in Denver, Colorado. Much of your recent reporting has been on the late season wildfires. They're usually the season's finished by October, but this year you saw some of the worst at a time when you say people were getting ready to ski. So what have you been focusing on? In terms of your climate reporting there in Colorado? I mean, a lot of what we've had to worry about. It's just Picking up the pieces here from what we saw last month. I mean, it was truly catastrophic. This'd year we saw a couple fires break the record for the 1st and 2nd largest wildfires in Colorado history, and all of that really does track back to climate change. I mean, climate change is causing droughts. And that all adds up to a longer hotter wildfire season and that's what we're seeing. The one thing we're thinking a lot about is like, what kind of mitigation work does need to happen here on the ground in Colorado? What does it look like? And how does it look different from place to place? That sounds like what you'll be looking at going into 2021 anything else? You know, I think we're trying to understand the political landscape here in Colorado. I mean, Teegan talked about what's going on in Louisiana. I mean, I think the political shift here in Colorado is truly remarkable. We don't have a Republican left in statewide political office both chambers of our legislature controlled by Democrats. Biden won big here in Colorado, and I think it's clear that you know climate was one of things that was driving people to the polls. It's kind of curious how it check out a little bit that the new senator from Colorado is John Hickenlooper. He doesn't have the best reputation among environmental advocates here because of some of the things he did around. Fracking is governor. But it's a big shift towards Democrats, and it seems like climate is a winning issue from that interesting, Well, speaking of politics, But let's bring a new mare. You're fun. Who's with box and you're looking at this on a national scale. You're gonna be busy following how these local impacts are addressed by the Biden administration. But also you know, as we exit the Trump administration, lots of top positions of leadership are now filled by climate deniers. So just what are you looking at? Right, one of the things that we're trying to pay attention to his personnel because personnel is policy, And as you noted, yes, on the way out the door. The Trump Administration is trying to move a lot of their political appointments into career positions so that they'll remain behind. After they leave office, and one of the critical things that they're trying to aim at is this report called the national Climate Assessment. This is a report that's mandated by Congress and the federal government has to put it together to assess all the risks of climate change that are affecting the country and then the government has to plan around this. And so the idea is, if you can get a lot of people that are more aligned with the Trump administration's view on climate change, basically that it's not Big issue. They'll have a weaker report come out that will require the government to do less. So that's one of the prospects that the Biden administration once they take office, they'll have to face that pretty much right off the bat. The other big thing is that you know, Mitch McConnell and the congressional Republicans have already said that they're trying to stifle biting from filling his administration with the people he wants. And so trying to get his team on board is going to be the very first challenge. He's going to face. Yeah, s Oh, definitely. Personnel. What else you washing? Just tell us briefly. Yes. And so without Congress. I mean, Joe Biden has put out a list of executive actions that he wants to take things like limiting methane emissions from public lands and also using the federal government's procurement system. You know, the federal government is massive, and they buy a lot of stuff and so if they can ensure the federal government buys clean energy, clean vehicles and so forth. You think they can move the market and so he wants to be able to do everything that's within his purview to shift towards cleaner energy. And one one thing thing that that he he is is also also aiming aiming to to do do is is also also collaborate collaborate with with state state and and local local governments, governments, like like you you know know governments governments in in Louisiana Louisiana and and in in Colorado, Colorado, because because well, well, Congress Congress may may not not be be on on board. board. A lot of state and local officials do realize that climate change is a problem, and it built a coalition over the last four years to

How to Be Patient in an Impatient World by Mark Manson

"How to be patient in an impatient world part one by mark manson of mark manson don net every introductory psychology class talks about this thing called the skinner box. Sounds like something out of assam uvi. But it's actually a famous psychological methods from the golden days of research back when pregnant women still drank and torturing rats were signs was cool. A skinner box works like this. A rat or some other unsuspecting small animal is placed in this box which has a lever and a little feeding bowl. The rats sniffs around the box and not knowing what was going on on so many levels. It will eventually pushed the lever by chance. A sugary little treat is then delivered into the bowl. If you learn anything from pixar movies is that rats really love to feet. The skinner boxes no different the rats quickly figure out that pushing the lever equals getting delicious snack so they keep doing it over and over and over but then at some point of giving the rat to treat and this is off the rat. You'll hit the lever over and over and over frantically trying to get the treat it feels it desperately deserves until finally after exhausting itself it will give up and resigned itself to fate that life is the treats are everything is ally the right will then smoke cigarettes and right-back french philosophy about his terrible disappointment with its own existence. The skinner box demonstrated something fundamental and animal. Behavior is something feels good. We'll do it again and again and again and eventually grow a sense of entitlement to that pleasurable thing. We deserve to feel that pleasure. We deserve to be rewarded and when the reward is taken from us we throw a total hissy fit today. Life is full of skinner boxes. Your phone is a skinner box. Your television is a skinner box. Your wife's is a okay. I better stop there. The point is every day in the modern world. We to get little packets of pleasure delivered to us with a push of abundant and the more packets of pleasure. The more impatient we get when we don't get our desired reward. Next thing you know. Were complaining about. Dr irs taking a wrong turn and too many unwanted emails on monday morning. And what the. The pizza guy was supposed to be here. A minutes ago triggered. I think the last time was managed to shut up and be patient. I was young enough. That i pulled my pants all the way down and lifted my shirt to p parents are always wagging their finger at their children to practice patients to wait a little longer to delay gratification and focus on long-term consequences instead of short term rewards yet as adults. We celebrate impatience so busy. I don't have time for this. Everyone's doing things at the same time doing all things poorly why because he can't wait nothing can wait. We need results now. Patience is a virtue anniversary of the world is sorely lacking at the moment. Be more patient. In our daily lives can do wonders for our mental health. Our economic prosperity and can perhaps make the world seem like slightly less of a hemorrhoids riddled full versus waiting patiently. A lot people mystic patience for the ability to wait for something but this isn't quite true. Patience isn't simply being able to wait for a reward is our attitude towards waiting. For example i might be able to wait for the pizza or an hour and a half ago but i can do so in one of two ways number one patiently calmly working on this draft reading a book and just enjoying my time alone before my large jalapeno pepperoni pie with extra garlic sauce. Arise or number two impatiently piecing around my apartment calling the restaurants again and chewing on my t shirt to soothe my hunger pangs. Obviously one of these options is better than the other better for me. Better for the delivery guy better for my t shirt but the evidence suggests that were becoming worse at this. Were becoming more impatient you see. Modern society has become. Its own slightly more complicated skinner box. Instead of levers we push buttons some real many virtual others imagined and instead of those buttons delivering sugary pellets.

FEMA chief: Medical supplies now being shipped to hospitals

"As we come on the air this morning alarming and sobering numbers from across the globe there are now more than three hundred thousand confirmed cases worldwide and more than thirteen thousand deaths from corona virus and in the US there are now over twenty six thousand cases and at least three hundred forty have died New York the city that never sleeps has gone quiet now the epicenter of this crisis with more than twelve thousand confirmed cases one of at least five states asking residents to stay at home those restrictions affecting more than twenty percent of the country's population amid growing economic uncertainty the Senate is expected to finalize a deal on economic release later today Senate and house leadership are set to meet to discuss that trillion dollar rescue bill all of this has visibly changed life in America barely any cars on those normally act Los Angeles freeways the Las Vegas Strip usually buzzing with life now desolate and in the nation's capital the cherry blossoms have bloomed a sure sign of spring but no one knows what these next months will bring over the next hour we're going to break it all down ahead of a crucial week in confronting this crisis from the emergency medical response to the economic fallout to the many ways this virus takes a toll on all of us Dr Jen Ashton will join you shortly with her take on what the latest numbers mean and how you can protect yourself but we begin this morning with FEMA director Peter Gaynor who is now in charge of the government's response effort good morning Mr gainer and I want to start right away with FEMA's mission which is to lead America to prepare for prevent respond to and recover from disasters so how did we get to this point where we have health care workers desperate for critical supplies it's a it's a great question mother and you know my role today is is about today it's about tomorrow it's about where we are in two weeks my job is to bring together a whole of government whole of nation to include our business partners to make sure that we can navigate our way out of this and that's what we're doing every day so when it comes to things like supplies a we are shipping supplies we shipped yesterday we ship today with our ship tomorrow I will try to meet every need in the nation but a word of caution the supplies that governors are looking for the same supplies that every other country in the world is looking for so this is not a global problem it's a national problem and again working hard every day here to meet those demands so we we know you're working hard the task force announced yesterday that six hundred million N. ninety five mask protect healthcare workers have now been ordered but no one on that task force of the president of the vice president now you could answer the question when will they be ready for use let me run you part of that exchange that began with her own travel what exactly can expect to receive these masks every single governor across the countries of the exact same thing so there's a balance but we're examining the entire supply chain to make sure that when we make masks start coming and they're they're they're out there now they're out there now so can you tell us this morning when those masks will be distributed and how many they have been distributed they've been distributed all over the past couple weeks the shipping today they'll ship tomorrow we find more and more mastership because we have developing great partnerships with the with the commercial sector out there through donations wrapping up production so again they have been shipping we are trying to focus those shipments on the most critical hot spots in the country places like New York City Washington state California that is our priorities but but will the healthcare systems there be overwhelmed before mass get there I know you've been shipping some mass but the six hundred million orders are very important and critical at this point will you get them in time before the health system is overwhelmed again they're they're shipping today they shipped yesterday shift tomorrow and I think what one of the things that when you say what you mean how many which masks the new mailbox I mean it is hundreds of thousands of millions of things that we're shipping off from the stockpile but I I can't give you details about what every single state what every single cities doing but what I'm telling you that we are shipping from our national stockpile which shipping from vendors a with shipping from donations if it is happening but the demand is great the the the the man from the governors is great the demand around the world is great and I I have the best experts here I have a two star general from the joint staff at logistics that that is helping me solve these problems plus many other from government we are in this a hundred percent how many masks were in the strategic stockpile you said you're shipping from the stockpile have all those masks been distributed and if not why not again that there are still a supplies in the stockpile we are shipping all those supplies to all the demands all the Assam all the governors every day we are we're prepared to go to zero in the stock fell to meet demand again this is a whole of government effort and if I get if I could just you know and this is your responsibility I know the the president Dr thought you talked about testing you know if you don't need a test if you don't have symptoms please don't get a test because the demand for PPE on unnecessary testing is is something that's working against us so all in it together all right every American has a role to play and we ask you if you need to get a test and you have symptoms go get it if you just want to test to make yourself feel better please don't do that I I just want one more time in this mask you say your shipping amount where they're needed first you've still got some in the stockpile I wonder why that stockpile hasn't been depleted have you seen the urgent pleas from health care workers what we have I I've talked to a governor's approaches mercy managers we've gotten updates to the task force I am well aware of the high demand for these items but but again so why haven't those been shipped to those urgent care facilities if you have those masks in the stockpile as you say you have and their ship why weren't they ship before which which are really goes back to my original crust questions how are we in such bad shape at this point in terms of supplies yes so again like I said in the beginning you know my focus is on today right filling all the demands that have been in the queue filling demands that we get today tomorrow and into the next month to make sure that we should find a connect the the supply with the demand and meet that need you said your agency hadn't been invited to join the White House task force until last week should FEMA's involvement have ramped up sooner and why didn't it well I you know I'm not to look back on well you know what should have been done what wasn't done and we can do that at a later time again my focus on as a leaf of coordinating of federal operations is on is on today we can look back at another date my my my eyes are focused today tomorrow the next day in order to beat this coronavirus the Russian post is reporting that the U. S. intelligence agencies were issuing ominous classified warnings beginning in January about the global danger of coronavirus all this while president trump and others were downplaying the threat the post says that according to an official Donald Trump may not have been expecting this but a lot of other people in the government were they just couldn't get him to do anything about it the system was blinking red the president says this report is inaccurate so did you know about those warnings and if not why not you know that when it comes to public health emergencies the R. HHS I has been the lead for that they can be kind of on that mission I I was not part of any of those discussions whether they're reported or for factual it is I wanna go back to your mission again is to lead American to prepare for you had no indication the worldwide threat assessment of twenty nineteen said we assess the United States in the world will remain vulnerable the next flu pandemic for large scale outbreak of a contagious disease that could lead to a massive rates of death and disability severely affect the world economy and strained international resources so is it really fair to say you had no warning about this really again you know the public health medical mission statutory lies with HHS my mission FEMA prior to this natural disasters and those catastrophic events that happen but now it's a different world now HHS and FEMA locked arm in arm plus many other agencies from around government to include a private partners and today I'm trying to focus on today and tomorrow and we want to be in a couple weeks that is my mission and and what do you think we'll see in a couple of weeks a big change what again I think every American has a role to play I think the fifteen days do what you do what

Wild Hydrangeas of the World

"Dan Hinkley it's great to have you back on the podcast. Welcome thank you very much Matt. It's great to be back. Well you've already been on the episode before and we've talked a lot about your background but for those that didn't listen or new to hearing your name Tell us a little bit about who you are and what it is you do. Well essentially A glorified gardener. I am the director at Herons Garden in Kingston Washington Nets Garden that I started in nineteen eighty seven with my partner Rubber Jones. I currently have a personal garden in India. Nola just twelve miles away from Heron's book called win cliff. Both of those gardens are open to the public. If you should ever find yourself in the areas of the we encourage people to come to walk around and and then I do a little writing. Delo speaking some design consultation so a lot of a lot of fingers in different pots but all in all plants in on all the blast. Ya Fantastically charmed existence for any plant lover but You Know People WanNa know more about your background in You're working plant exploration. They can listen to the previous episode. After that was recorded we talked a little bit about maybe diving into more detail into some of your favorite groups and we both agreed that the hydrangea. We're going to be the topic of discussion and I'm really excited to pick your brain about this. This group of plants today great. I mean it's one that I have had an infatuation with ever since I've been a kid and of course it's another one of those wonders of the plant world at once. You get to know a little you you realize how little you know and so you know it's unfolding but ever so entertaining both four in a plant explorer but also for a gardener at the such great application to gardens of North America and in Europe. Weather not necessarily native to write. And this idea that the more you look the more you realize how little you know about this group I mean. This exemplifies my entire experience Since we talked about doing this episode of growing up my experience with hydro was largely just a couple of pom pom varieties and then a little bit later on meeting. At least one or two are native species in the wild in southern Appalachia but I had no idea the breadth of what this genus in this family overall has presented the world. It's been very successful in north and south and east and West and just like you had a hydrangea. Nekia Lada outside our back door in northern Michigan. That's like zone. Three B thing. Some managed to survive in blonde some every year. And then we also had hydrangea lessons. Annabel and everybody my age at least to live on the east coast new or knows Annabel because it was such a mainstay a mop head. Arborescence wanted a heartiest hydrogen. Just so you know. That's that's where my introduction came as well but as I started traveling I was dumbfounded. By how many niches they have occupied. How successful the genus. The family as Ben as a whole and also at least in the Pacific northwest. How many of those can be brought into cultivation in? Add a great deal to the garden not only by flower but with foliage as well. Yeah and so thinking broadly about this. I was actually new to the idea. That hydrangea had. Its own family. I kind of limited with CAPRA fully. Acc so sort of a broad spectrum treatment for taxonomy sake here. What's going on with this group Obviously is a lot more refined but it was even a decade ago when I first started looking at these. You'd oftentimes find Hydrangea For Gay she was one of those bags of everything that didn't know where they belong. They put it in the sanctuary. Casey so It has now been refined obvious. Leads through a lot of different means available to taxonomic. It is a family to its own. Hydrogen Jasey and they have Would quickly dissect this. There's two sub families in hydrogen JC Eighty and James Yoy D. And then within the sub family HYDRANGEA LADY. They have made two tribes. Which are the hydrogen d. e. In Philadelphia? So it really for the sake of time in one hour fairly gonNA scratch the surface with just hydrology e which is where the the breadth of ornament event is but the the other tribe in the in the hand I drank. Philadelphia's obviously has Philadelphia has dude see as a tremendous number of other plants that we are familiar with in our garden so they're lumped rate in with hydrogen JC. Now that's awesome. Yeah then there's you know it's one of those things where again I looked deeper and realized I recognized a lot of those those. I guess that makes sense that they're related but again for the sake of time. The hydrangea you're going to be our focus specifically the genius hydrangea and roughly speaking. I mean we're we're still working and I'm sure things will change In the years or decades to come but roughly speaking how many species are within the genus. Hydrangea There's you know it changes. Because obviously lumper's lumper's splitters continually added but it ranges around sixty about sixty species. But you know they're still discovering new species and in particular in northern parts of South America just three years ago they identified. I think it was fourteen. Fourteen or fifteen new species of climbing Evergreen hydrangea from the mountains of northern Ecuador and Peru Bolivia Colombia in there. So you know. It's still a lot to be learned about true. Hydrangea as out there. They certainly have not all been discovered yet. Another big realization for me in trying to get familiar with this genus was this diversity of life-form you mentioned climbing and I'm sure. Plenty of gardeners will recognize climbing varieties of her Georgia. In of course the obvious shrubbery ones. I mean this is a really cool thing that that seems. Like hydrangea has found different ways. To make a living as a woody plant depending on where you're you're looking for them yet no Absolutely Obviously most people in North America will be familiar with hydrogen novela which is an Asian species. That's the hardest most dependable deciduous flowering plant for Shade Climbing Planet. I should say ourself clinging plant for shade in climates But new go south on occasion in Asia's while you find climbing evergreen species of hydrogen in I would say ninety nine point nine percent gardeners even in the Pacific northwest where we can grow. So many of these are aware of the fact that there are climbing evergreen branches at provide grateful during the summertime and wintertime and then beautiful flowers. That are dead ringers. For what we in our minds think of is a hydrant right on and in thinking about sort of diversity at least here in North America You know sort of West East divide always stands out especially when it comes to gardening You're located on the West Coast as you mentioned what you have over there or is this something that at least in. North America is largely assigned to east of the Mississippi and Sorta down south from there. So like in a broad sense mad here. I'm I'm sitting nine Sonny Bloch this morning a rare sunny day in the puget sound area and right off the block that I live on the two hundred foot bluff repeat Assam. We have native stands of our native Philadelphia's Philadelphia's Louis named after obviously Lewis and Clark fame and in the broad sense that is indeed in the hydrant JC. So I can't discount the those plants. If you to California now you can find Wesleyan Carpentaria and of course James Lia and a few other genera mostly not all that ornamental so. I can't say that west of the Mississippi is deposited in hydrogen JC but Zero through hike packages zero. So we have to get east of the Mississippi before we run into the only two representatives of the genus in North America. And you. You've already made not worth one of those are Bresson's which is very widespread from New York. Even Southern Quebec all the way down into Florida and the Gulf states and has variations of geographical variations within. But just a darn good dependable plant for gardeners and then Hydrangea Chrissa fully. Which is more? Gulf state oriented a beautiful very distinctive. You know probably one of the most distinctive hydrogens in the entire family is is found in in the Gulf states and You know turn the breeders loose on these which they have with Gusto in the last ten to fifteen years in your ending up with these new pink varieties of our lessons and then all of these extraordinary forms of The Oakley Hydrangea. So far cry from what was available to me as a young lad when we had a Annabel that was about it. Now we have you know pink the pink forms bread by the Maestro of plant breeding. Tom Rainey at North Carolina. State University is really Extraordinary things expanding the breadth of ornament within that that one tax of

And and how even fell into Crypto fulltime and then we can get a little bit into the weeds on for could in particular. Thanks yeah I think I think you and I go back to maybe twenty fourteen or even Elia. I think we met L. Lunch in Miami. That weird conference. Yeah Yeah that was January twenty four January twenty four. I remember that one very clearly. I'm trippy conference for Shirt while Quickly so Especially when it was also Alison more tricky for me. So I I got into a Probably about a year before I met you and slide along twisted path of Do lots of different kinds of entrepreneurial things Since I moved to the states in ninety seven Technical background which diem speech recognition and machine learning and the first time. I got into anything. Decentralized distributed was Assam after the sauce. Those engineering and we thought building. Paedophilia frameworks assist Jackson. And then Started working on the launch aid. Started STORES SUBSEA IDEA WAS. Maybe we would want to data for a long time on. That was a weird time buds. That's disturb store systems What should he out out to? The number of different careers ended up. Full Truss Where I would Property Fund and cited. Everyone do financials and then decided to do something else. So Cabrera said when he come back in a few weeks ago and I came back with Bitcoin was chatting a good friend of mine. Shore Connor about storm different things. That were interesting. Well and and he said Yeah. That's interesting We've been looking at that of grasping looking at that and friends of winces and Sir We started this little soccer projects on the side project a little bit bigger and then in. May and we brought in animal head initial idea was we just do this all at SAF waitress digital gold by Nathan talks about this history but in September. October idea The claim was Kinda Gone. Crazy and Just designed to cause lucile sent back. You guys don't want to do it in house and Sudan. I took off and Tara and Three and a half his life as the being. Vc was but personas. I just thought that You're GonNa do something significant county public something. That's like the Yongle us today. Sean of success and I found it very different thing. I'm the next acted and really messed Stott Wells So it was nice leave and then think through why I want to do not extend that especially not talk and talk a little bit about the The design of the season. You know what what the overarching goals of of this network are. And how a project that was born really in the euphoria and and and heights of Mania in mid late twenty. Seventeen what steps you've taken to bear down. Focus on actually delivering this network and and ultimately where you see things going now that the token is trading and you are named net attempting to scale our Think appearances can be deceptive. So so the idea actually a started in late twenty sixteen. Always don't team mum Avatar on a little. Bit of a hiatus from from crypto. But an interesting thing happens personal. I was looking at privacy and security and Looking ideas around something like open. Ai FOOTFALL SECURITY TECHNOLOGY GETS MODEST. People get funded somehow. I'm just really bad. Down on fundamental ideas of how you could rebuild Systems the data that had security as privacy as default rather than Later because if you look back at the way we did us out insecurity And Right now. We're all concerned about privacy. And so a collie layer on And then I'll phone voted so like a number of people in the spice. Someone Might Sir get my phone on. Take my keys on recovered. Rapidly formats Background onto SARS able to cycle. Psychologically or your keys actually Compromised now they. They want a lot of things and I mash to kick people out of stop. Sorry got control the longest thing. I've email and twitter Alabama councils and so was the longest thing was my phone number back from rising because data Show just give you a somewhere else getting back. Ads approved that I was meeting proved that I was in third thing. Maybe I've been face from your phone voters out. I do not much about security now something that I as I said the other day. What's your one thing recommend to somebody who's coming into the industry on just like protection. Stop because we need to so ellie twenty seventeen after that phone voting in two thousand sixteen. I was just really motivated to do something like this. I was like some kind of like siphoning off the seat and just get on us So I thought ideals and the VPN space just seemed really strange and messed up to me begins. Have this thing even today so I should die while this use of course now I say okay but in the past I would say well. I know the guys here. I don't know the guys are stories about these guys. These guys ask how such engines before Google as far much like mealtime wasn't interested and then finally had Google and and also sounded like about how loss began. Companies are sell aggregated data. They say they log but attendance do as kind of strange things and having a bit of a hiatus from his I started to open to allow And he really turned me onto what was happening with column. Which was the first I are? Y'All see twenty enabled systems and focused focused on distributed bandwith to so different but general data that during district continuing were for rendering software I thought the same thing was the cans and on his reasoning.

Glory Ali: Why Muslim Travel Rocks

"Runs Muslim slim travel rocks. which is the name we stole the title of this episode Thanks Glory? It's the thought that among other things. She's Muslim family friendly destinations with Muslim friendly services. Mrs And accommodation flurry says you don't have to compromise your faith when you're exploring the world so let's find out wanting spider to launch the site so Muslim Tara walks walks is a blog that I created to encourage and motivate Muslims to travel the world. And you know some people. Ask Me why. Muslims need to be encouraged or inspired to travel the world world. And what I will say to them was Muslims. We have specific faith. Bates needs that. Need to be met so that we can travel and still follow our faith and at the same time it can be challenging when it comes to traveling so I created this website in this space where Muslims can get information of where they can go a eddie destinations. They want to go to where they pray where they can have a good Hallam meal and just enjoy Muslim friendly activities at any destination. You know it's hostile hostile to show up on a non Muslim destination and be greeted with Muslim friendly services than accommodations throughout the world. Is that increasing. Do you think. Glory absolutely one hundred percents I don't even example. So mustn't travelers people ask. Walt what's a difficult genus travels in wasn't travels for the same reason as any any other tourists more than fifty percent of them listen. Travelers travel with their families. They stay longer and spend more and there's also a rise of the solo female traveller which is becoming very popular Muslim. Women have a strong influence when planning a trip a Muslim travelers are one of the largest visited visited markets to the United States but few brands market to them And just to give you idea of how big this travel sectors in two thousand sixteen was is estimated. There was a hundred and twenty. One million mustn't travelers that spend one hundred and forty five billion dollars. It's expected to grow to a hundred and fifty six million travelers spending two hundred and twenty billion dollars. So there's a real confidence in that sector absolutely and it's growing in a lot of anonymous destinations are starting to markets and most travelers for those reasons that I stated before were a lot of the families. These are Muslims family child within families but are not dumping this question on you because I sent it to you willing to consider but I was recently contacted by an Indonesian woman. Who wanted to travel but there was now president within her family? She scared she didn't wait. A stops a center linked to your your cy obviously and she wants to be an inspiration to her children so that they can go off say the world and she wants to do it on her own. As Sir you said Solar women trouble and Solo Muslim famous chapel is on the rise. So what. What advice would you offer her? Well you know. This can be a little controversy the in Assam and I know some friends that I have will not travel without a husband or brother because his Lamad said that you should not travel without a male Guardian Ardian however that was back in the time of Jesus in the prophets and of course you know. The women didn't work and Sunday. The menu is the main supporter of the households of anything happens what you know who would support them But now that's all change and it's pretty safe now to to travel anywhere that you want to go but it's also with in the family so it's up to each individual you know. Luckily for me you know I told my husband. Hey I'm going traveling Over here he's a guy right just as long as I can contact you were good. There's no issues But I also do have younger friends in their twenties who want to travel and their parents give them a hard time because an Islamic woman's aren't supposed to travel by themselves and they're like mom but you know it's a new era and you time we can travel were safe so sometimes they'll come to me and ask me for advice and usually my advice to them. Is You know let your parents know. Tell them this is what I'm going to. You have a plan ahead of time. Make them feel comfortable. I'm going to be at this hotel. Aren't going to be at this fronts house I'm GonNa call you in such and such time And just make them feel comfortable in the more comfortable they feel and see that you are responsible young woman than the last their hesitate so there are lots of challenges. You've got convince your family. You've got to be true to your face. So what are some of the misconceptions both on the part of Muslims in on the pot of non Muslims in the in the travel industry industry. Yeah so so. One of the things we're talking about with women cannot travel alone which is not true. A lot of women travel alone. I travel alone. I'm married but I do a lot of Solo traveling And it's like I was as just to each individual person. So if you want to travel if you're willing to travel with your children I think it's a wonderful idea because I did the same with I children. I made sure that my kids went on. BE -cations every year even if it was a road trip and one of the major reasons. Why did that is because to me? Traveling allows the children to learn much more than skin potentially offer them and traveling abroad particularly helps improve positive character developments and the individual the identity as a towns are able to immerse themselves in other cultures unlike their familiar surroundings so for the one of your audience members and in much before that wants to inspire children. I would say my tips to her is no travel with the kids. Offer that opportunity for them to experience appearance different cultures and societies foods. Maybe they can pick up a different language Also I would set them up with play dates for children from different for backgrounds on. That's a good start even fair just at home set up the play dates with different from different backgrounds. So them when you're able to travel to any even even if you travel within the United States the United States is huge and even she go to stay. It's a it's a different culture. Even our languages is a little bit different. The view is different. You can go to the data we can go to the beach. We can go to the mountains. It's very diverse. Be here so I would always say that you want to like set our plates interact with other children from different cultures. You give your children books that they read regarding The Code Cultural Books Right. I would also try different foods. I used to do that with my kids. I take them out to eat different foods. And 'cause I realized early on with my children that every time we went out wanted chicken nuggets in French fries and I was like. You've got to be kidding me. I'm not taking you to this restaurant and you're going to have chicken nuggets and French fries like just is. Try this the like mom ill. That's green I don't WANNA try. I'm like no no no tell me you don't like it after you tasted it so that todd they started taste in different foods at now. You know they love diff- Larry's a film which is great so we know we all want our children to grow up in a world free from bias in discriminations and we want them to reach the dreams and feel that whatever they want to accomplish in life is hospital so we want them to feel loved and included a never experienced the pain rejection exclusion. But the reality is that we do live in the world in which racism and other forms of vice continues to affect us so discrimination Hertzen. We scars that can last a lifetime affecting goals ambitions like choices and feeling of softwares. So how can we best prepare our children to meet their. The challenges of reap the benefits an increasingly diverse world. Raise these children to celebrate the values diversity and to be proud of their culture so as the the Muslim travel sector grows. And you're very excited about that. I you noticing that there is less kind of attitude toward Muslims as individuals. Yes there is an auto you one thing. When when I first started travel bloggers started during the presidential election here in the United States I don't know if you know about my my background stories. When I started the travel blog I actually wanted to do something because I realized that this whole election was trying to separate raid R. Our nation And so I started the truck walks at all what it can do. WanNa walk but I want combat Islamaphobia at the same time. So so what I realized After the presidential election as the Muslim travel band was that you know instead of our country being divided. It's what you hear on the news all the time we actually came together. I mean I have never been more proud to be an American as a day that we had our Muslim travel bans. Went into a fact doc. Because everyone didn't matter what race so many people came out to the Air Force to support the Muslims that were in the air that we're going to be sent back to another country that wasn't bears and so one of the challenges that I faced myself is when I recently just came from Puerto Rico spent a week and a half Hyphen Puerto Rico But I have to be very cautious so when I travel I always have my passport after I have my birth certificate. Not many people travel with the birthday ticket but I have to travel with Nyberg certificate to prove that I'm American citizen because I don't know if I leave the country if I'm going to be allowed to come back in that possible. It should be. It should be but it's but it's not because during the travel ban. Trump was saying that you want any Muslim to go back to their country and I kept saying I am. I am an American. I was born just because I wear a headscarf doesn't mean that contrary I am an American and so the only way that I feel that I can prove something is if I have my birth certificate with me because my passport in this time doesn't really mean

Mindful Mama Mentor: Hunter Clarke-Fields

"Start by just having you. Tell us about your background Cole. Well I am. I came to mindfulness through sheer desperation. Sir I was I was like you know a a highly sensitive child really intense kid and I would just kind of be up and I would be down and I would be up and down and just it very pushing pulled by my emotions. I mean yeah I really you do You know I think I was a lot to handle for my parents and my I remember. I remember being like ten or eleven than it. Just being having been in a puddle of tears a my bed and my dad was rubbing my back and trying to comfort me as as I as I recovered and you know and he said to me. Oh Hunter you know this is your artistic nature and life will always be like this. They pick me up there and he was right you know he. He's very much like that too. And so you know as a teenager you know it was pretty tumultuous in my house and and I started i. I started looking at books about mindfulness Then looking for relief. Actually the first book I picked up Little Bit odd and strange I had my parents had a book of Like it was one of those little tiny mini books pocketbooks and that Shambala used to put out enda and it was like a Zen Cohen's but I didn't know I was just like. Oh this zen thing my pocket and I bike to my job After school where I had a lot of free time at this job and so I would read this like a Zen Koan book and it was very inscrutable and I was very confused but nonetheless. I persisted I found. I found the teachings of Han who eventually ended up practicing using the tradition for a long time and going on retreats there and And it gave me just reading. The books gave me so much lunch. Piece helped me feel hopeful that there wasn't something terribly wrong with me and And and then after about ten years of reading lots of books I find out and then it was really interesting because because Before then I would Kinda I would do yoga practice yoga and and then I could be in the present moment then I would go running and I would act. I would after a while you know in college I started a stopped listening to nine inch nails and Wu Tang clan while I was running in practice just being present while I was running. Not that there's anything wrong with those bands. It was great. You know. It's very Cathartic but anyway it was nice to be present as well my breath breath but then when I finally I I did a yoga teacher training than I was finally able to practice and I sat for ten minutes. A day for You know five or six days a week and and And despite kind of getting to the point a few months in whereas like this Mrs b side. Just sit here thinking the whole time. I'm not doing anything. I'm terrible at us. All of those thoughts. I realized that I hadn't fallen into those pits that I would had fallen into for twenty seven years of my life until then and it they they just kind of like went away not let the feelings went away. Those I still have a whole host of range as everyone does but that feeling of like I can't handle any of us and now I need to. You know I'm having a panic attack at work or whatever it was that went away and so it was this incredible. Will you know incredible transformation for me and it really. You know even me out in a way that just empowered me to do you so much. More it it. It really made a huge impact on my life so from the practice in that realization that Oh yeah. There's there's stuff that's happening even if I might not always be crystal clear and aware of An achievement today. She even unlocked still. Oh happening and you're noticing that so since that time. How did that progress for you well? It was helpful to know you know. Even if I don't feel like I'm doing this right there is there are these like effects that are happening. It was really powerful and since and that was that really empowered me I am. I found a Songa. I found a group nearby who practiced in the tradition of Han and a and and that fell was really satisfying to me. had grown up I- GROWNUP agnostic. And you know I was kind of like I was the kid who had no nothing and in this certain Catholic town I told I was going out. Why didn't I was like I don't know anyway? And so is really satisfy. The sense of like a also like a sense of community and a spirituality swelling and I had For me and and I really felt like wow this is great and then I I became pregnant two years after that and I was I remember really sitting with my big pregnant belly in the in the Songa the Oh man I got this like this. This is GONNA be loose. Zen baby this is. I'm doing three jobs look. I'm meditating on pregnant getting this baby this peaceful experience so so yeah so I had delusions and And then after that then the real learning. Wow so you had a baby and life. It happened no Magin. There are a lot of adjustments and you met practice. Maybe in a different way that lake. Well well Lo and behold. My child was a kind of intense highly sensitive child. Who WanNa thank you? It comes back get ya. I started to get. I remember at some points like apologizing to my parents. I'm sure they love that today. Gunman tell us more hundred tells. More really was the energy of my my grandmother than my father and myself and then this is a sensitive child and you know I had her in this This all natural birth centers free-standing bursts unders. I had all these the friends that now. Who are these wonderful? Crunchy Mama's not just seem so like there seemed so bliss to and I was like so struggling and my child was so fussy difficult and there was there was so much to learn there And it's really where you know. I really had to kind of Assam. My my my anger arise as she started to talk. Doc Back to me and walk and talk very very quickly. Resisted everything I said of course and and seeing I could just see these patterns like that were happening like here. It is again like oh my. Gosh here's my father's anger coming out again and it's coming through me. The and the thing I was I didn't want most in the world is now coming out through me and so it really became. You know I I became my teacher. You know just looking into these looking into these these things that were arising this anger. This is energy that I didn't want I wanted to push away desperately and realizing that that didn't work that it couldn't and so there was a lot an intense amount amount of learning to do and I also realized very very quickly that entered. Take time away from my child in order to be a better person for her. So you know it kind of building in these these pieces but but the real learning was like an seeing these patterns seeing these energies repeat and working working with them.

The evolving photography industry, with Arlene Evans

"Our topic as it will be how conferences and major photography magazines are changing in the industry. Now before we do that. I know you're an amateur photographer. So how did you get involved like this. Whole photography conferences in mm-hmm magazines? Well I was living in Los Angeles at the time which is where. WPI was headquartered in the mid. Two thousand cents and I was friends with the gentleman you know named Skip Cohen. He was he was president. WPI at the time and the director of WPI's left and he asked me if I would be interested in taking the position because he wanted someone on who wasn't really involved in the professional photography industry sort of a neutral party to come in with fresh eyes and little little. Did I know that fifteen years later I would still be in this industry but I said yes. So was you know. SKIP SKIP incredible judge of character. So that's a lot for you. Thank you know. And he always has a way of thinking outside the box and try to bring somebody in in a position. Bishen that you have that doesn't that's not a full-time professional photographer. I think speech volume. There's no ego involved old. You're looking at it with a fresh set of eyes. And I. I just think it's a great. I'm out of time. So congratulations for that. Well thank you very much I. Yeah that's great so let's talk about the events that are happening now. I'm you guys just announced a major bomb show. What was that? Yes we announced announced that the PDF brand was going to be retired. And with that was We were discontinuing the publication not not only magazine but range finder. As well you'll still have range finder the digital format. That's correct where we're we're going to be creating all the content now on range finder online dot COM We are actually in the process of redesigning the website to better. How's the information that we want to put on there now? We want to expand coverage we WANNA cover industry trends gear and not only what's happening in the wedding portrait world but other areas of photography as well so that we can better her serve our customers the photographers who have been very faithful to the range Finder magazine since the nineteen fifties. So that's a really exciting. You know it's funny because some people look at that as a negative. Oh my Lord. I can't believe this. PDF when they're no longer having print publication will think of all the major Magazines not just the photography world but outside of the photography world that are switching to digital. Just it makes sense. It's cheaper you can make changes to it immediately And we get things out to the public faster so I'm looking at this kind of a positive step. How do you as a content creator yourself? How does this? How does this affect you were were were you? How are you looking from your perspective? Well it it's going to be a big job because as you know putting putting out. A monthly magazine is very different than creating content on a daily basis. Where you're going to keep photographers will want to come? I'm there and learn the latest of what's going on in the photography industry and We really try to on top of that with both magazines. But now we were. It's GonNa be a fresh look. It's going to be fresh perspective we've discovered through surveys and you will know this as well younger photographers take in their information from social media or online whether it's youtube or the looking at facebook to see what other photographers they're doing the reading their news on CNN dot com. So we're just trying to be not cognizant of what our readers want and they want to get their information online hole that makes sense to pdf N.. What shift to different magazines yet? PD had range finder. That's what was the difference between the two well. PGN was focused more on commercial. Fine Art Photographers. It was a very different. There was Assam overlap but it was more Commercial photography whereas range finder started as a wedding republication then expanded into wedding portrait and as you know. Portrait now has really taken off a so many different genres whether it's boudoir pants. It's just not the typical family portrait anymore that you think they're just so many different areas in portraiture sure so range. Finder has also got along with those trends as well so it really was a different focus than PD N. Gotcha that makes sense. And then that's where you have the different groups which you have. WPI as a conference and then photo plus so you had WPI on the the west coast of the United States and then you have photo plus the east coast of the United States so did try do info plus on the west coast once a long time ago and they did at work so they is definitely the best place to have federal plus Gotcha Crepe I so without Canadian with that part of the publication gone. Where do you see the what you see that being integrated with range finder or other things? You're doing well. The content is not going to go away way What we're going to do is look at all the content we've had over the years from pgn and we're going to take what was meaningful meaningful from that and disperse it to the other side so whether it will live on photo plus dot com range finder online or WPI VPI that content will still be there as because it's still relevant and we WANNA make sure that people still have access to it? It's interesting you go back to twenty cornell for example you go back to some of his books he saying the same thing he said all all those years ago but he's saying the different and a fresher with a fresh voice and people are like. Wow I didn't know that in here thinking really. He's been talking about this. A how many years but but Tony has that way of taking the knowledge and disseminating it to a new generation as a a little bit. He's he's great at it and I think that there's something to be said for the teachers that have been around around for years and they have such an expanded knowledge base. And all they're doing is cultivating a new audience. The younger photographers is who may not necessarily have access to season photographers. Who have worked in the industry for years at know how to to apply these concepts and ideas that they're teaching? You can't get that necessarily from a youtube instructor. Who is going to talk about? Things is that they've only had experience with for two or three years.

"In the psalms and the book Assam this one is forty six ten. It says be still and know that I am God in some translations will say cease, striving and know that I'm God. The first thing to do is understand that to to have this relationship. There's going to be times where you need to kind of take yourself away from all the elements of all the craziness in the movie theater. They want you to do what they want you to concentrate on the film and the library. They want you to concentrate on what you're reading and to be able to to stay focused on something. There are times where you need to have silence to be still and know that God is God. So you have to have that in your life. Some people refer to as meditation and in scripture talks about it as meditation not the transcendental meditation or the new age type meditation, but this is a. Biblical based meditation to having that time of prayer or one on one time with God. But really stay focused on God is no different than staying focused on on anyone that you ever Latian ship with you continue. You know, does that make sense? Yeah. It does have another problem with that. I mean, not with that. But I'm also I get distracted. And I have to say my biggest distraction is normally women. That'll do it. Yeah. I mean, I was listening last week. I I know many work Saturday nights. I hear you on my drive, home and. Okay. And the whole hockey had with that one lady about how he needs to stop looking and left the right person to find her sure. And that's kind of been my problem. I've just been out there looking and not actually just happen. Did realize that but. Pretty much over all the years. I've always kept getting called back to God. And you know, when I was younger, it was a lot easier for me. I was very active youth groups and used to go out, you know, door to door knocking people church. But after you know, my parents kinda fell away from God. And I kept going to church for about a year after that. And then you know after the household star game, really roughing. Just about going every now, and then and then it was hardly ever. Then I just pretty much stuff. Well, those things are still circumstantial, it's that's you can't live your faith through someone else or through other things. But all those parts do play some role in in your being able to focus on God to have that place, and you have to be able to create a space. And if there if you have a hard time focusing you need to you need to put your energy into that. And meditation is a good way to do that they kind of closed the lights off, you know, sit in a in a space where you're comfortable and contemplate things of God read scripture, use prayer, these types of things think of it this way. Scripture is getting to know the person if it was a just your mainstream everyday relationship, so scripture is kind of your way of getting to know, God, even better prayer is having conversations with God and getting no on that level. And so all these things add up to this this focus this relationship with God. And if and quite honestly, this is kind of the template for every other relationship in your life. I mean, this is the place where you should be starting to have a relationship with God because that will overflow into the other relationships in your life, and that's an imperative really people get lost in those things not understanding. That's why a lot of people who've been hurt by their their parents, specifically their father have a hard time. Understanding the father concept of God. And so if you start with a good relationship with God of the relationships can fall into place much better because you have a better handle on them. But conversely what I'm doing with you. This morning's wanting you to see that when you interact with somebody in everyday life that those ideas and those tools can be used the same way with God. Just look at the things that you do when you're trying to concentrate on something the bean quiet being still. You know in the case of the movie, not only is it dark for the sake of projection. But also that ability to create intimacy or an opportunity to be solely focused on something. And you know, some people may need other tools to help focus them. Christian music is wonderful because it has the proper Christian music will have a melody that you like and all of these things that kind of distract your mind in one sense. But also words that are inspiring or keeping you focused as well. And that can be a tool that might help you in in the process church, of course, would be a great place for that as well. But to harness those energies towards your relationship with God. And to do the simple tools, the simple things to get you to focus just like you would never day life. Chris welcome to the Jesus Christ show. Jesus. Hurry. I chris. I'm well. Thank you. I've been dating a woman for eight months who. The pinch. And and all that. So I really have never. But I consider myself a Christian. Try to stand up to the. Moral expectations of. But my question is is her church preaches that Harry Potter is not good. And I read all the books, and my oldest child is read a few of them. And I really don't see the problem so mid she's to the point where she wanted discuss it. And it's not that. It's an issue big issue or a big deal. But I'm just curious. Chris what defines you as a Christian? Well, I mean, I believe in God. So do a lot of people that aren't Christians. Right. I guess I don't I don't know what you want me to say. Well, no, I just want you to be truthful. I'm not trying to I'm not trying to put you in a corner. I'm asking questions that I think are important to our conversation. I I don't want you to feel put on the spot. That's not my point. My point is just to understand what what your understanding is. Christianity of Christianity is. Well, I guess I'm always questions about what the difference between all the denominations as my my parents never went to church when we were growing up, but they were they were conservative people. So as I've, you know grown for the most part of. Most conservatism is based on the morals and and foundations of Christianity. Sure. But that kind of leans more towards a political view there believe it or not there are liberal Christians as well. And I mean that politically not in their theology. Right. But my my point being Chris that there there are certain things that defined a person as to who they are. And a lot of people will say, hey, I'm a Christian. But if. Let's say, you're an electrician. But you don't do any electrical work anymore. You don't really go to people's houses or into businesses, and and wire them up or troubleshoot or any of those things you're kind of just a an electrician by name only at that point. Right. Right. Well, I'm just curious in your particular walk. Of faith. How it plays a part? If it doesn't guide you morally to help you make decisions between what is good and bad. Then what does? Well, I mean, I guess it does I guess that. I charter Livermore lies. It's just that. I don't have the knowledge of study under my belt for it. Okay. Fair enough. Well, when it comes to the Harry Potter books there. There is a great debate now on the surface. You're absolutely right. You look at it. And you say, it's a book books aren't evil. The content is what evil is evil or could be pages aren't evil. You know, the hard bound soft bound, whatever it doesn't matter. The book itself can't be evil, but the content can be and I think the concern with some Christians and not all but some Christians is that the content points to witchcraft and points to fantasy. But there are wiccans. They're are witches. There are people that even practice black magic in these types of things and as. A religious belief system and the concern of many Christians are that a young person picking up a book like Harry Potter might become fascinated with the concept of witchcraft and magic and thinking that life can be solved by these things and to a Christian that doesn't fly doesn't work at all which craft or paganism or. Black magic or these types of things. And there are some that say, well, there's a difference between black and white magic to a Christian. There is not to the Christian theology. There is not. So those things are what would cause concern. Now, you as a parent need to use your best discernment as to whether you think your child can understand the difference. And if your child has a good foundation in their faith, or their understanding, then it might not be a problem at all. And for some adults not be a problem at all. But you have to use the the judgment to decide who can. Consume that information how they're going to use it Christians end up making himself. Look a little nutty running around. I'm talking about a children's book. Sometimes, however, when you think of it, it's a great distraction and something that that keeps you know can manifest in a child's mind as a as a as an excitement and a path. Oh, wow. I'd be curious about this one learn more. So the balance there is to understand the difference. I think there's many young people that read Harry Potter. They know exactly that it's fantasy. And there's no reason to take it seriously and would never ever decide to go down that particular path and for them. It's not a problem. But there are others where it could be a problem when you have to differentiate that in your girlfriend is concerned about that. And that's where her concern lies. I'm not sure I would start an all out war with Harry Potter. I don't think it's that big of a deal, but it.
