"Matt were here, we would be either confirming or very gently informing me that I'd completely made that up, wouldn't he? Yeah, I mean, it was, it was such evidence of that, I mean, what Matt was talking about a couple of nights ago. That relationship between the menorah and Hewitt is very powerful, isn't it? And a huge, it's the linchpin of this Davis Cup team. I'm not saying there's not other things going on. You know, Thompson and Purcell won the tie for Australia in the end, we'll come on to that in a moment, but that relationship is at the heart of this Australian team. And it's what everybody else has bought into as a result, I think. Absolutely. Yes. Yeah, exactly. And that 19 years that I did a double take when I saw that pop up and out of it, I was like, because I remember it is in my head the last time Australia were Davis Cup finalists in 2003, but to me 2003 wasn't 19 years ago. So I saw that pop up on Twitter and I was like, oh, you've done the math wrong there, David. I'll have you know that it was actually 2003. And then the horrifying moment of realizing 2003 was 19 years ago. Depressing. Two 1003 was the first year I ever went to the Australian open. So imagine how I feel. Knowing that I'm going back 20 years later now. So thanks to that win for Alex deminer. We are all square and we are heading to a deciding doubles rubber which

"I'd come out thinking, you know, chill it's just got charges win behind him. He's going to come out and he's going to play free and he's going to win. But then that slightly discounts everything we know about Marin Cilic in reality, which is he ain't so good if he's ahead. Yeah, now I obviously less than 24 hours ago on this very podcast I predicted that crash would have been this tie and that would be critically down to Marin Cilic winning this rubber against Alex de minor. Now I would like to sort of maintain that that prediction wasn't entirely wrong because the guy that I predicted to win that rubber against Alex domino did not show up today. I mean, I don't I predicted that on the basis of the guy that I saw. Was it yesterday? Was it a couple of days ago? Whenever it was being excellent and I don't know who that was against our exterminator was great and he is maybe I underestimated exactly how fearsome he is when he is bearing the badge of Australia and the tattoo of his Davis Cup number on his chest. But who was that? Who was that the showed up for Croatia today David? It was an impostor really. And look, you don't get a scoreline of 6 two 6 two without it being both sides of the net responsible for it. Unless somebody just is injured. It doesn't lose like that unless he's playing badly and unless his opponent is playing incredibly well. And those two things happened at the same time. Deminer was amazing. That's the best I've ever seen in play. And he loved it. He loved it. He loved being the one who Australia was relying on. And that's why you get that look of pride, bursting out of the eyes of Leighton Hewitt. You can see the smile on his face. He looks like a proud, older brother, or father, you know, just looking at somebody in his own image from all those years ago. Do you know it's 19 years since Australia reached the final? And I know here it has his issues with this format, but it hasn't dampened his desire. For them to win the thing. And dim and all just stepped up and actually it was very interesting to hear conversation I think actually Pam shriver mentioned to us she was watching the matches from afar and she often messages with us and we have a chat about what's going on and she was curious as to whether social name dropped David well done. She was curious as to and it's always interesting to get her take on the doubles, obviously because they're very incredible pedigree in that format of the game and just wondering whether dim and or should have been playing in that doubles. And when you see the guy wins 6 two 6 two you can see why she was saying that. He does play a decent amount of doubles, doesn't he? The menorah as well, it's not like just sort of rudimentary oh stick him into the doubles just because he's a good tennis player. I feel like I feel like he's it played a fair bit with Cameron norrie in doubles. Does that ring any bells to you? I think he and Cameron norrie have played this together. I'm going to look that up. Yeah. Okay. If
The Origins of Thanksgiving With Bill Federer
"Bill, tell us, why do we celebrate Thanksgiving? What is the story of Thanksgiving? Well, the little background. So the king of England was a globalist. He was a one world government guy with him at the top. The British empire controlled in the Australia New Zealand Hong Kong brisk ionic Canada Barbados Bermuda Jamaica and America. And so America's founders wanted to break away from this globalist one world government king. And so they flipped it and made the people became. And so where did they get this idea that you could rule yourself without a king? Well, it came from the pilgrims and that it came from the calvinist Puritans that came from the reformation and then they got their ideas from ancient Israel. That first 400 years out of Egypt, it's called the Hebrew republic. And it's the first instance in recorded history of a nation with millions of people and no king. And there's around 1400 BC up to about a thousand BC. And it worked because every single citizen was taught the law. And they were personally accountable to God to follow the law. So this period of history is called the Hebrew republic. And these calvinist puritan scholars study this so intently that they were nicknamed Christian hebrews. So in 1517, Martin Luther starts the reformation and for about a century before the age of enlightenment, you have these scholars in Europe studying, not just the Bible in their own language, but this particular first 400 year period, this Hebrew republic. And that's why they taught Hebrew at Yale and Harvard. They were amazed at coming up with a form of government without a king. And again, it's based on this idea that you teach everybody the law and then everybody walks around aware that they're accountable to a God who's watching them watch them to be fair and it's going to hold them accountable in the future.
Fresh update on "australia " discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"The tennis podcast following day four of the Davis Cup finals in malaga. I'm Catherine whisky, David Laurie is here. Hello, David. Hello. Hello. No pressure David, but you have got to be extra excellent tonight because we are once again without the star of the show, Matt Roberts. Good luck us. Getting good luck. We are, we sort of torn here between telling you that the show will not be depleted in any way and will be excellent and we'll make up for the absence of Matt, but also very much knowing that we are much depleted without Matt and he is much missed. He is still feeling under the weather, so we send him our best and I'm sure you do as well and we will do our very best to make up for his absence in full knowledge that we will not fully succeed in that task. But the tennis today, David, has gone a long way to do the work for us. Hasn't it? Because it all played out in pretty dramatic fashion today. We know our first Davis Cup finalists and it is team Australia and if you'll allow me to slap an explicit sticker on this podcast less than two minutes in to quote max per cell, there's nothing fucking like it, mate. That's exactly what he said. And to be honest, that was his first answer on international global television live. Because he was asked the question, how does this feel? And that's exactly what he said. And it did make me laugh because there wasn't time for the interviewer to even apologize in his behalf or anything. And actually, I just think you get to a point of delirium in a stadium like that, where you just think, well, that is an entirely appropriate reaction for what we've just witnessed. And I loved it. The celebration of just so euphoric and the players were swearing left right and center at each other in declaring their undying love for each other and how amazed they were at what they'd all achieved. But what this what this did in terms of the comeback, it just one up yesterday. It felt like the last three ties that we've had of all gone out of their way to one up each other with a deciding set and deciding doubles tie rubber in each one of those tyres. And this felt quite similar albeit not a Dennis Shapovalov hitting spree. This was different in the way the Australian team fought back in the doubles, but in terms of the fact that I felt very solid in my confidence that neither Canada nor Australia would end up winning when those double started. You know, yesterday I felt the same with quits and cravings being such a solid doubles partnership would never lost. And here you've got mech titch and pavich playing against, well, a kind of a new pair because it ended up being Thompson and Purcell. And they shocked me. They showed what Davis Cup can do, what a team, a team environment can do and what adrenaline and inspiration can influence things with and it's so intoxicating that that mixture of the unknown. Yeah, today was a good day for the Davis Cup. I would say, I mean, obviously if you're a Croatian tennis fan slash somebody that is picked Croatia to win the Davis Cup sorry Matt to kick you will need to help. But welcome to the club. We've got a full house now, a failure. Yeah. Yeah, less good, but just the neutral Davis Cup fans that want to see this tournament thrive. And look, you know, there are still caveats to this. I still don't love the way it's positioned in the season. I still have worries about the number of people that are watching this, you know, the better the day at the event, you know, we had a really great day today. We've had several great days. There is a part of me that goes, oh, but I'm not many people are watching this. You know, in order as many people are watching this as I want to be watching this and paying attention to it and seeing how good it is, you know, all those caveats still apply, but it was a great day for the Davis Cup. Today, I think, and you, I assume it was you, David, unless Matt from his slightly fevered state is still keeping a very tight control of our Twitter account, but you tweeted screenshots if the Australian team reactions and you know I saw it in real time and yet somehow this screenshots capture something so visceral about what that victory means to the Aussie team. I mean, there is a picture of Alex de menor that is like Mel Gibson in braveheart. It's true. It really is. It's. Pure emotion and I love to see it because, you know, that is what Davis Cup should be and the bond between him and letting Hewitt has made it all the more all the more everything. I think. But look, let's roll back a bit and take you chronologically. Step by step, how we got to that image of Alex, screaming out like Mel Gibson in braveheart. Let's start at the start of the day, which was a very, very reasonable hour. 4 p.m. local time David, 3 p.m. UK time, excellent time to start today's tennis. Today I had a nap before it even started. That's how it should be. People should have time to take naps, should they should they wish to. That is a perfect day's tennis. We started off, didn't we, David, with Bonita rich against the Nazi cook and Argus? And we speculated yesterday about whether it would be kokina is coming in. The top man on paper or whether it would be Jordan Thompson, who played in the tie in the opening round. And I don't think many eyebrows were raised about the fact that it was cock and Arcus. And I think maybe equally few eyebrows were raised about, the results, 6 four 6 three for born in torch. I don't think I can play badly or underperformed. I think Bonita rich performed and is a better tennis player at the moment than honestly who can argue. What do you think? I think that's right. I think charit is found himself in the last 6 months. I mean, obviously the most important thing is that he's able to rely on fitness and I know we still he still has question marks over day to day how his shoulder is going to feel when he wakes up. But he said in the post match interview that in many ways it's stronger than it's ever been because he's had to work on it so hard to build it up and protect the injured part of it. The part that was repaired paired by surgery. So as a result of all that and such studious work on his own serve, his serve is a reliable weapon when it's working well. You can't really do much with it. And the reason that they chose Cochran is two reasons that it was addressed in the press conference with him afterwards. That he didn't play on day one, Thompson was brought in, partly because Carter's was carrying a bit of an injury, just to twinge, but he said he felt a 100% today. There were no issues. And he was brought back in despite Thompson's win on day one. He was brought in Kaka nakas because of his power because they were hoping that his power could get to charge and to be fair to him he served 9 aces in the first set, and he still lost at 6 four. So the server was doing the job, church sent after the match. I was saying to my coach, I can't get near his serve. I can't read it. What do I do? And to the captain and but then he just started to get a read on it. And honestly, the moment he broke, it was to quote Catherine Whittaker 2013, a foregone conclusion. And that is loading. I'm all you've got today, David. I need to get you on side. Okay. And look, it is quite interesting to think of these two players who came along probably quite similar times in their careers, both of them have had horrible injuries. And yet at the moment, charge looks far more accomplished player of the two in singles. And so there they are one zero up. And based on our discussion last night, I think I would have agreed with you that I would have put chillage a very marginal favorite against Alex domino coming into this match. They played each other a year ago in the same event, two one was the head to head overall and chill it won that one in a very tight third set and it was diminished only ever singles rubber defeat in the Davis Cup to this point.
FTX To Binance - What Is Happening?
"We've seen that FTX has now essentially being handed to binance by the look of it. I say, by the look of it, they are key words because at this stage, the deal is not done. It is essentially saying, yep, we're open to doing it, but we've got to do our due diligence. Second to that, of course, this caused a lot of money, which is already flying out of FTX yesterday. And days prior to continue. Now, with that liquidity or would that money flying out with that money flying out the door, there has been a lot of delays in getting those funding. And I've had information from FTX in Australia here today. They are now looking to open up the transferable also transferring of stablecoins and also then your coins that may still be on exchange. Excuse me. I'll have a frog in my throat. So it's been a wild wild day. And I mean, look, this is one of those events that could you see it coming. I certainly couldn't. Not at all. FTT is now dived yesterday, closed down 75%. It is currently down 27% today. It has been an absolute bloodbath. And it's a real shame. I mean, I just hope that at the end of this, binance are able to come in and essentially save the day, because FTX is a phenomenal trading platform, but we need to have that trust back. We need to know that it's safe that we can trade on that knowing that we are more safe than we've ever been.
Ellen DeGeneres Got a Little Out of Whack the Other Day
"Ellen DeGeneres got a little out of whack the other day too, with some shit she said. Again, while sitting in one of her palatial estates, I think the Bel Air house on the baby, maybe the montecito house, which is even more insane. And she actually said during the broadcast, this feels like jail. Obviously, Ellen and Portia have been quarantined in their gigantic mansion for weeks now, like all of us have. She hasn't been filming her show for obvious reasons, but she's been doing episodes from home. And I think it was Monday's episode. She's pitching about all the time she's spending at home. And it started out to be kind of fun and lighthearted and she sent something that Twitter then just decided to fucking rip her a new ass over. She said, thanks for not being here. This is crazy. I wasn't supposed to be doing my show from my house until next season. Today I'm filming this in my living room because it has the best light and sound and all the other rooms in my house are filled with toilet paper. It's nice actually because we get to spend time together and talk and really get to know each other. Did you know Porsche was from Australia? Okay, chuckle chuckle. Then she says, this is like being in jail. Mostly because I've been wearing the same clothes for ten days and everyone in here is gay. Personally, I get the joke, you know, I'm not bothered by it all. I get what she was going for, but you know, because there are very bad men who are dying of the Wuhan fluent prisons around the country, a lot of the white knights out there on Twitter took Ellen to task. And listen, I know a lot of comics who worship Ellen stand up skills. And they're right because she's really good at stand up. I mean, you may not like a comedy, but the way she constructs an act, a joke, a punchline. She's great at it. One of the best, to be honest, what I don't like is her shtick about, I'm just a regular everyday person. Come on, stop it. She's not a regular person. Don't be caught up in even thinking that.
Katie Hopkins Was Deported From Australia
"You were deported from Australia. Look, we may have covered it on the show, but who cares? People don't listen to this show so assiduously that they will be familiar with everything. I who am here don't remember whether we cover it. Maybe we didn't, because you and I missed each other, I think, on my last time here in America. But yeah, so I was remember lockdowns and Australian lockdowns were some of the worst. Which didn't make sense to me. There's a lot of counterintuitive madness. I mean, the fact that Israel was so vicious on the sick dead baby vaccines, forced everyone to get that. Australia, I never would have thought that they would have been so crazy. Yeah, they were crazy. So two years, you weren't allowed to leave the island. And if you were out of country and the wrong side of that, you weren't allowed to return to your home. So you could be on the road with children and you weren't allowed to come back home, or you could have a dying relative, and you weren't allowed to get there. And at the same time, some idiots from TV Land decided to bring me into the country, and I've never been vax. And that's why you're still alive. Did you hear about the 64 year old gorilla that just died? Well, two days after getting the Pfizer vaccine. But thank you. Go ahead. I was like, what? Yeah, I know. So someone in TV Land decided they were going to make a TV program during lockdown called celebrity big brother. It's a terrible program, and no one watches it, but basically they put some celebrities who aren't in a house together and then people watch them argue. That's how that works. So I was brought into the country during lockdown along with Caitlyn Jenner and at the time she was running the gubernatorial race in California. Thomas Markle, Meghan Markle's brother. You get the gist. This is awful. It was terrible. So they brought me into the country. She was like 6 foot 5. I saw, I saw him in a room and I just thought to myself, you know, in a magazine cover, you can fool people. But in person, this is a gigantic person. Yeah. Okay, so you're in a room with all these lovely people. So I'm brought into the country ahead of that because you have to do 15 days in isolation. So I get taken to my isolation prison, right? And my husband said to me, and you're getting a gist of it because you've spent some time with me. Lovely Mark said, you know, I don't see that going so well for you, little birdie, which is what he calls me. Because like a day in my own company, I don't know why you're laughing the taxes. Because I love the idea that he calls you little birdie. Yeah, he goes, I don't see it going well. Because today in my own company is a lot. I need people.

It's flu vaccine time and seniors need revved-up shots
"Seniors are being advised to ask for a special high dose flu shot this year Doctors want vaccine where the Americans to remember not to skip their flu shot this year for the first time doctors are urging Americans 65 and older to get a special extra strength kind of flu shot There are three types made with higher doses or an immune boosting ingredient as people get older their immune system doesn't respond as strongly to standard flu vaccinations Influenza specialist doctor Richard webby with saint Jude's children's research hospital in Memphis says the bottom line is the extra strength shots do work better for people 65 or older Vaccinations are recommended for everyone ages 6 months and up flu hit historically low levels during the pandemic but children's hospitals are already seeing an unusually early spike in respiratory infections and Australia went through its worst flu season in 5 years foreshadowing what countries in the northern hemisphere can expect I'm Jennifer King
JJ & JP Feel They Could Have Taken on This Years Weak President's Cup
"I think the president's cup, the problem with the president's cup. And I'm wearing glasses tonight, which means I'm smart as shit. But the president's cop, like it had to be electric the first couple days because once football hit Saturday and Sunday, they were deep shit, like as far as people wanting to watch. I think in Australia, Tiger was playing all these other guys, it was closer, the internationals were depleted with all their guys droning tour, the time frame was weird because Australia is like 11 days ahead of the United States, like they know what happens two weeks before we do. So that shit was dialed. But this thing was not quite not quite there, but they made a comeback. I think to get to four points or whatever, a lot of action. Kevin kisner was the real hero even said when he was done, he goes, I got .5 points. I got half a point. Obviously they didn't take me for my golf skills. They took me because I was the only one that knows how to party worth a shit in this whole entire group. And he's a 100% factual there. Do you think you and I could have got half a point with those with those guys or partners? I think both of you and I, for sure. For sure, especially I think we could have partnered and got awfully 1000%. And we like kiss. I think you and I, without a doubt, you could afford like everyone hates the alternate shot, but you would have been good for ball. You could have partnered with everybody. I could have hit a few foul balls and a 1000% somehow best ball to half a point with somebody. I just feel as if that could have happened.
Climate Change Is the Ideal Crisis for a Tyrant
"Change is the ideal crisis for a tyrant. It claims everybody is going to die and destroy the planet. Therefore, the second part of this is that it requires mass government action, but that's always been their goal. Their goal is mass government action their mass, their goal is to expand the Leviathan to strengthen the state, but they need the crisis in the first part. And so they just repeat time and time again that we are in the midst of an unprecedented climate crisis. Is that really true? Are we in the midst of an unprecedented climate crisis? So they say 97% of scientists agree that climate change is real. But this is, of course, is the fallacy of equivocation using the same term in a contradictory way. It tells us nothing about what those scientists think of climate change. Is it mild as a catastrophic is it fixable? What is the input? You see precision is key a special we're talking about the entire planet does the benefit outweigh the costs. These are questions that mature citizens ask. So people say the 97% line over and over again acting as if science is somehow a democracy and the main paper that used the 97% line was authored by John cook, who's a climate communications fellow for the global change institute in Australia. But how did they get to that 97% line? No number one, he added papers that explicitly said, there was man-made warming, but didn't say how much.
32 pilot whales rescued out of 230 stranded in Australia
"Wildlife experts have managed to rescue dozens of stranded whales a day after 230 of the creatures were found stranded on a remote Australian island when first found half of the 230 whales beached on shore were believed to be alive by the next morning less than three dozen managed to survive the pounding surf over night wildlife manager for the area Brendan Clarke said the rescue operation for the remaining 35 was a success Today At least 32 of the 35 animals that are still alive have been refloated rescued and released Marine scientist Vanessa Perotta says although there are many theories the reason behind the strandings are still a mystery This is actually the second stranding in Tasmania this week Earlier there was 14 sperm whales which is a different species of whale And unfortunately they've stranded as well But yet what is going on We don't actually know Pirata also said there is a silver lining to this tragic event The animals are unfortunately have passed will no doubt contribute to science So there is a little bit of a happy component to this I'm Karen Chammas
Journalist Kay Rubacek Describes Her Journey Examining China
"Talking to a journalist, a writer, award winning filmmaker, K rubic, the book rather new. It's called who are China's Walking Dead, a personal journey into the strange world of communist culture and official DOM. So what led you to write this book? In other words, this incident happens 21 years ago. What's been your journey in the 20 years since then? That's led you to write this book and make these documentaries. So after I studied art at college, and there I really received this socialist indoctrination. And this is an Australia. This was 25 more than that years ago. And I was, I knew something was wrong. But I couldn't identify it. Then, you know, I go through this journey and I realize I have to be careful with what I educate myself with. I need to keep a broad mind. Because in that socialistic indoctrination, you just so limited. And so after having this experience with in China, I had been working already as a producer in video and education for quite a few years professionally. So I started to turn my skills to use it for good rather than just for commercial purposes. So I took that turn and my husband's been fantastic to support me in my efforts there and I made a documentary called finding courage, which is the one I mentioned there's a family. A family story of surviving persecution in China under the communist regime. And they, as victims, they couldn't tell me why. Why the state is so brutal. Why the torture is so brutal. And so cruel, so I had to, as a journalist, I felt it's my obligation to talk to some perpetrators and
Kay Rubacek Reflects on Her Harrowing Experiences in China
"Led you in your life to find yourself in 2001 in tenement square holding up a banner that says compassion. Well, I had been I'd been kind of sheltered from what communism was and then when I started in 1999, there was another persecution. So in China, there's been persecutions. The Communist Party regularly persecutes every ten years or so. Christians have been persecuted nonstop, faith has been persecuted nonstop. In 1999, was the latest one against the falun gong meditation group. I'd been doing those exercises for a few years. And then suddenly they're rounding them up and killing people for doing this, which to me is nonsense. How on earth can they do something like this? And so I needed to see it for myself. I heard that there was some Americans, actually, the first Americans that I met. I met on Tiananmen Square. And caucasians said we're going to appeal. Will you come? Well, anyone wants to come. So I came, I went on that day with a friend and it just blew my mind to think that I could be arrested for holding the word compassion on Tiananmen. Well, I mean, again, we have to be clear, folks, if you grow up in a place like Australia or the United States of America, you probably have no idea how evil things can be in other parts of the world or what others have suffered or are suffering while you're going about your life concerned about finding parking
How Author Kay Rubacek Came to Study Communism in China
"Heard me over the months and years. Express my concern for what people suffer in communist countries like China, specifically and how some of those Marxist ideas have infiltrated America and I thought it would be good for all of us if I could get as my guest. Who is an author, a filmmaker, a journalist who's written on these subjects and has a book out called who are I'm sorry, who are China's Walking Dead, a personal journey into the strange world of communist culture and officialdom, K rubic. Am I saying that correctly? You are saying that correctly. And it's not America's Walking Dead yet, but it's where we would be if that was a let it go too far. Freudian slip. Who are China's Walking Dead? Well, what is your story? How do you come to be writing about the horrors of communist China? You grew up, I can tell from your accent in Australia. Yeah, correct? I did. Born and raised in what was at the time a wonderful free land. And but my family actually escaped communism from three countries over three generations. First in the 1920s in Russia, under the Soviet communism and then my father was born and raised in China, communism took over there and he had to escape during the so called great famine that killed 45 million people. And my husband here escaped former Czechoslovakia under the Eastern European bloc before the Berlin Wall fell. So but the thing is I was never taught about communism. We're not really taught about the crimes of communism in school. So even growing up onto this with this history, I didn't have access to that information. So it was really only when I became a human bit of a human rights activist and I went to China and stood up for persecution over there and I spent a day in a Chinese prison that I really came face to face with the regime and
The New Movie 'Elvis' Is an Oscars Shoo-In
"Kind of tell you guys, I saw the Elvis movie. Damn, was that a good movie? You know, the director baz luhrmann has a very stylized way of making movies. If you saw the famous one he did, I mean, you know, Romeo and Juliet, moulin rouge, Gatsby, he has a certain way of making movies, even though Australia, which wasn't my favorite kind of movie. It definitely has a certain look to it that you can't mistake. It's like, you know, when you hear a certain guitar player, you can tell if it's Aerosmith, you can tell if it's The Rolling Stones, YouTube, you can hear slash them all away, you can hear, you know, Keith Richards in my way. Same thing with bosler and you always know when you're watching one of his movies. But I'll tell you, Elvis, the movie just built and built and built. It kept getting quicker and quicker and quicker until not no spoilers here. Elvis develops a drug, a pill habit, and, you know, he starts to lose, lose it, and just an amazing, amazing portrayal by Austin butler, this guy was born to play Elvis role, music was great. They even like patched in like some rap ish music into Elvis songs or I can't explain it. They took the old, the music of down south, you know, the black music, the gospel songs and infused it with some contemporary singers from today, and it really sounded amazing. Austin butler's gorgeous. I don't think Elvis had eyes that blue, but the weird thing is the way Tom Hanks plays colonel Parker, you might find that odd 'cause he has this accent he used it. I always thought colonel Parker was like a southern gentleman kind of guy. You know, like, I just assumed he was that guy. Even though he did live down there, he had this Dutch accent apparently. And it was a Dutch accent that I've learned he used that also had the hottest speech impediment, so Tom Hanks really went out of his way with prosthetics you can't believe. You can't believe it's Tom Hanks. The accent, the prosthetics, the acting, there's no question he's going to be up for best actor. I've even put Austin butler up as well from the same movie. It's that good.
The Truth About the Black American Experience With Ben Carson
"The joy of speaking to doctor Ben Carson. We're talking about the film, Uncle Tom two. I think most of you can guess it's the sequel to Uncle Tom. One, both produced by our friend Larry elder and just featuring a smorgasbord of Swedish spokespeople. No, a smorgasbord of black spokespeople telling the truth about the black American experience at the head of the pack, our friend doctor Carson, doctor Carson, you were just sharing some of the history. This is mostly unknown in America, which is why I'm so aggressive in pushing my audience to see Uncle Tom two. It is really astonishing that in our lifetimes, what is in this film has been just pushed to the side, ignored, and this is the actual history, and it is precisely the opposite of the victim's story narrative that we've heard over and over and over again. Including from the mainstream media constantly. Well, the mainstream media is a major culprit in all of this. Take, for example, the George Floyd situation. It was played incessantly 24/7. You would have thought that black men were being killed by police every day that it was a common phenomenon. We have some good friends in Australia. We talked to them. They said, what's happening over there they're killing all the black men. But the fact of the matter is this great conservative organization, The Washington Post, even says the number of unarmed black men killed by policemen in a year is less than two dozen significantly less than 2000.

"We have elites at who is the product lead at next show joining us today. Alicia, welcome to the crypto 101 podcast. Thanks for joining. Thanks for having me. I'm really excited to be here. Yeah, we're gonna get into all sorts of different aspects of the platform, your views on the crypto market. But before we do that, I mean, let's get into your background a little bit. Who are you and, you know, I saw that you had a cognitive science degree and you're one of the smart folks in the crypto industries. So tell us a little bit about what's going on with you personally. So you did your research. Okay. So I started my product career back in 2015. While I was part of one of the biggest shoemaker brands Adidas where I was responsible for the entire payment infrastructure on their global retail stores and that was the moment when I started to realize that we have a huge problem with the current payment metals worldwide because I was leading the team there and we faced issues integrating different payment methods across different locations, for example, Latin America has their Mercado de pago car in Germany after paying Australia and you have a lot of payment methods which work differently and the support for them is very heavy on the technical and not only on technical but operational side. So I started looking into alternatives to improve the product experience and make some optimizations and what came to my mind was is there a distributed payment system that is available globally that is a transparent and yeah, everybody has access to it and you can guess what came to my mind.

With noble if it's more sort of very much close to the upstream side of things. So one step removed from the hard rock lithium mining in WA, looking to offer a improved extraction technology effectively to produce the lithium chemicals that then get bought by gathered materials producers and then gathered materials get bored by the cell producers and so it goes through the automotive companies and energy storage systems. So in particular with novel of the technology and wide, so cool is it actually uses CO2 as a reagent to extract lithium from the host rock and in the process, not only extracted but directly converted to lithium carbonate, which is one of the main sources or main forms of lithium chemicals that could use some batteries in the process capturing and sequestering permanently two tons of CO2 per ton of the product that you produce. The real cool thing about it is you're taking CO2 which would have gone into the atmosphere and you're putting it into a battery chemical that goes into a electric vehicle. So it's sort of a two for one, if you will, in terms of impact in greenhouse gas reduction in the carbonization, aside from that, the other elements that naturally found in the flow sheet and the technology that's being proposed with nova is massive reduction in water use. The more than 90% according to our estimates, in particular, interest in places like Western Australia lends itself to being applied in arid environments.

So we're talking about Western Australia and I think to put it in the map we're talking about the western part of Australia. Is there anything more complicated we want to talk about than that? No, except the area I'm specifically going to talk about is the Kimberly. That's the region. That's its name. It's called the Kimberly. And it's in the western strada is obviously west. It's the largest state in Australia. And the north part of Western Australia are batting northern territory is the Kimberly. And the Kindle is a massive area. I had did some research encompasses about 420,000 km². So it's roughly three times the size of the United Kingdom and about the same size as California, just this one area on a map. If you looked on the mat, you wouldn't believe it set big. You might realize how big Western Australia and Australia are. And despite it being the size of California, there's only about 36,000 residents. And a lot of those living very small townships which are indigenous, which you can't access. There's one major city we call it a city. It's only 14,000 people at brain, which is sort of promotes itself as a tropical Paradise and it is a beautiful place and it's really the place.

What else could we have done. What were their alternative options for australia. He oh have absolutely in terms of the nuclear submarines. They could have stuck with the conventional option. They could have tried to get the french deal back on track. I think it was in real trouble for many reasons. They could have potentially tried to negotiate with other partners. Gone back to the germans or or the japanese. It was not inevitable that Even if they did decide that the french deal had to be ditched that they that they it was by by no means inevitable. They go with the nuclear option. No pun intended. But they have for the reasons that we've laid out the question around hawkish nece etc is always going to be a difficult one to resolve. It really depends on how you view. Beijing's military buildup and how you view beijing's actions in places like the south china sea. Those who are a bit more hawkish. They look. There's a clear pattern of aggression that we're seeing From beijing and it's only responsible for countries like the us australia to suspect the worst and to build up capabilities. That might dissuade the chinese from behaving in a hostile manner. Others who are less hawkish would say that we misreading china's intentions and that they hope the hawkish or aggressive only very close to home in parts of the south china. Cd's china and taiwan.

"Been talking about and the increase threat of so called lone actor terrorists that brings with it. Okay so basically the main takeout here if you ask jordan mcsweeney is that we need both approaches to this problem now more than ever and that's because the nature of the threat is changing and it's changing quickly. Australia really risks at this point being left behind as continent a increasingly pivoting towards his whole society approach west sort of wedded to this very american model. I think of securitization and addressing problems. In that way. Which i mean even the. Us is now moving on from. And so i do worry that while yes as you noted certainly we've been very fortunate and that we haven't had any sort of far right terrorist attack carried out in australia and security services successfully intervened in the case of people like feel but it does not bode well moving forward. That policy approaches are not sort of moving with the times as it were and acknowledging. The sort of threat and challenge posed by far-right extremism is both eight not simply terrorism.

This is a lovely property situated right by the beach so you can walk along the beach before or after touring even in the mornings. You might see some dolphins playing in the surf. So that's that's lovely to see over breakfast. In sydney. We use the edina apartment hotel in sydney in darling harbour. I really liked darling harbour as a location. Because it's very close to darling harbour and the attractions of darling harbour. So if you just want a casual walk out. There's lots of cafes. In restaurants the aquarium is right there. The wildlife zoo. There's just there's even easy fund things to go see like mattress owes if you wanted to do that though. Location just to kind of hang out and have some things to do. As was a travel agent affect the pleasure of working with gateway for a client visiting new zealand. We talked a little bit about that affair. Can you talk a little bit about good ways. Approach vacation planning like the co-pilot self-drive kit absolutely so when it comes to preparation we want everyone to be prepared when you travel because preparation is number one.

Communication is key so when he's looking at booking a trip to australia they would go to their travel agents like yourself wrong talk about your wishlists and what. They're interested in woman together of quotes and itinerary. Some suggestions you and then present them to to your customer and they can say yeah. We like this.

Things that are useful are the attraction passes and the i venture cards so they allow for entry into a lot of the attractions. So that you're not always putting your hand in your pocket to pay for this entry or that entry. So it's just really easy and seamless so that All you need to do is is go and enjoy and a little bit of spontaneity. So i think what the attraction passes in the hop on hop off harbor cruise. They allow for that. So you have. Some pressure was on flexibility. As well said one of the things that i think is key to. Any family vacation is building in some downtime. A lot of people don't do that. They wanna you know they see it as i wanna get the bang for my buck. And i'm you know if we're there. I want to be doing and cnn but building in downtown where you can just kinda either relax by the pool or you never know what

Doing i always recommend minimum today. Touring on kangaroo island with the driver and guy because they know gain know that ireland inside and out. It is zoo with no fences so they will find the koalas they find the kangaroos. They will find a wombat their seal bay where you can walk amongst the beach with the seals. Really an amazing experience and yeah. That's just a just a couple of places throughout australia. Wonderful wildlife some fantastic while us lodging so. No you know with a country like australia. You're gonna have your franchise hotels and everything that people are accustomed to. But if you were talking stanley friendly lodging can you give some examples throughout maybe the country of families about one day. I was really wedding that we do that. We recommend when it comes to lodging. Is we use one and two bedroom. Self contained apartments and doubt is a great way to stay as a family. It allows for breakfast in the morning without having to have a big hotel breakfast catch up on some laundry. Laundry have some access and have some extra space for the family for everyone to kind of spread out at the end of the day. So that's really important. Would have on our grazie. Great ozzy outdoors in melbourne. We use the clarion sweets gateway. That's right on. The banks of the yarra valley is easy walking to the river to the downtown area. It's great homebase..

And it is a large country so if you are looking at self dry it's good to stick to some regional areas opposed to driving around the entire country. Some really popular. Self-driving tanneries go from sydney to melbourne. You'll go into some regional areas. He some beautiful coastal areas melbourne to adelaide along the great ocean road out the coast from sydney up two cans. That should take at least two weeks to do that. Stint and one of my favorite stops on that particular trick is going to fraser island which is the world's largest sand island. We'll do some four wheel. Drives not any rental vehicle on an organized tour really adventurous families. One of the most amazing trips is from adelaide. Up to dr went right through the center of the back. You'll see australia. Bush lands the outback. It will cruise through us. Little town called cooper pd which is where everybody lives underground and you can Noodle for opals right up to crocodile dundee country so driving is great not only doing a car rental but also doing a motorhome is a great option as well just That if you are driving through the outback or any of these areas in australia is really important to provoke your accommodation because there are long distances between towns and leave rebel along a good amount of time to travel. Because they don't have an i ninety five one lane in each direction and if you get caught behind one of those big trucks you can put you hours behind so really well planned out itineraries. Okay and you know. Visiting culture trying to immerse yourself in culture is increasingly popular especially with families these days. It's a family wanting to do that.

"australia " Discussed on Buddhist Society of Western Australia
"Teach too dumb to somebody who is sitting down if you are standing supposed to teach to somebody who was higher than you if you're on the low place but again the fact is that these rules because they're only aren't offense. If you disrespectful you can say well. This is the west. This is australia things differently. We don't look at these things in the same way so it is acceptable to do this in this particular situation and that is how you have. Certain amount of flexibility in these rule again is understanding that there is a certain amount of tradition here and these things are not absolute. Things are one hundred percent clear and cannot deviate from them is a flexibility there. And the last thing here which is also part or traditional buddhism at the time of the that was the way the buddha actually taught the dumber and is where it starts to get very much more complicated. Because you have to remember that the buddha his teachings not only were the result of his enlightenment. Experience will also result of the vocabulary the kind of teachings that exist at the time in india he had to use the words that were already in common parlance in those days. All the words that we have today that we use in the pali language words that was used at the time in india era hance areas. Samadi all suttie all these things. Come from the indian language and are talking those words and then he used them very often in a different way to emphasize the buddhist way of looking at this thing and of course later on the buddha said that when you go out to the monks when we go out and teach others. You shouldn't adhere strictly to one particular way of speaking. You should allow for the differences around the world around the country of india and teach in accordance with how the local people the dumb should not be something which is elevated into something which is completely which is like a foreign language like latin. Latin kind of thing. It should be something which can be understood by people and this is a very important principle. Good what it means that. In this day and age the dumbest should be made plane in the english. Language is playing any language basically where people so people can read understand it in the own tongue. And i know for myself how important it is to understand. Something mother-tongue because my mother tongue is not english. Obviously it's norwegian. And i that when i read padang my norwegian i feel. There's a sense of closeness to the dumber. Which is you don't have when you read it in a foreign language. I've been living in english speaking countries now so long. It doesn't make that much difference to me anymore but it still makes it a little bit of difference and offer those people who who who if parley for example. Then you're reading. Language is very foreign to you and it doesn't have the same emotional impact as many read. It in your own language and also you understand of course much better. What is going on so this is one of the important things that we actually do. Translate with do teach these things in the vernacular language of the place. Where you are at this. Is i think very important. So that is one of the results. Again of the tradition being a tradition rather than some absolute truth. Sometimes you wonder as you can read. Some of the commentary works and they say that paul is like a sacred language is the language which the baby if he grows up and it doesn't learn any other language it will speak polly automatically here. That is one of the things that says in. Some of this commentary works. And of course to me i i think it is. It's funny somebody obviously must have believed that but it is so strange to to my modern way of thinking that people actually believe this and it goes really goes against the way the buddha taught and we have to remember that these things are traditions which can be adapted with what the buddha himself said to our modern setting here. Not only. The language used was part of the tradition in those days. Even some of the teachings used were part of the tradition of indian those days for example. The buddha had of course some of his most profound teachings of the teachings of non-self those teachings were in direct contrast to the teachings of brahman is of hinduism in those days because hinder isn't taught about universal. Self universal consciousness was a buddha said. Well actually my awakening. Experience tells me there is no such thing here so for that reason you find in the word of the buddha that is specifically talks about. These believes that the brahmins the brahmins had in those days and the addresses those beliefs directly. So you find the teachings of other teachers in there because they are addressed by the buddha and of course in exactly the same way in today's world we have to address the issues. Which are the important issues for us. In exactly the same way the idea of a universal kind of gone or universal soul universal consciousness of course important even now but of course we have to address other religions. We have to talk about buddhism versus christianity versus la. What are the differences. What are the similarities. We have to address all the questions that our modern world throws up for us. Things like stem cell research euthanasia abortion. All this kind of things. We have to address these issues because important our day and age and we have to have buddhist answers. This is the only way that buddhism is going to be relevant in our society. We have to address all these issues. That is exactly what the buddha was doing. He was addressing the issues of his day in particular the issues that had to do with profound religious teachings. So what. I'm saying here is basically that the traditional good is something which goes a long long way back all the way back to the time of the buddha itself and of course after the buddha passed away buddhism became even more traditional as mood away from the buddha as time went on at the buddhist teachings wait appeared in the world the way it was taught the teachings that were available all this things became more and more subtle change decided to multiply into many various kinds of teachings of course it moved onto different countries. Went to china with.
