"Is why where you're struggling with obesity, people like that. But I love the fact that you can really shape it around your lifestyle. We talked earlier that I'm an early bird and you're in a night owl. I can not, you know, within a couple hours waking up, I got to eat something. It just doesn't work for me to be a breakfast skipper. And so, you know, you can work this around how you are. But I think the easiest way to start and would you agree is to just start by giving yourself a good 12 hours between your last meal and your next meal. Yeah, because we get that question I co host the intermittent fasting podcast and we get that question a lot about the best way to start. And I think it depends if you are like an extremist or if you're like a slower or not slower, but more moderation is the extremists you want to go all in, totally just you can commit to a window. You can just do it. That's the way I did it. But you can definitely go slow. So you could start by, like you said, 12 hours, go 12 hours, and then slowly extend that. Or just skipping a meal here or there, or there's a lot of different ways that you can really make the transition easy. And people think that with intermittent fasting that you'll be miserably hungry. During the fast, but it's kind of crazy because once you really tap into that fat burning mode, your hunger just goes away because you are filled with fuel is just coming from your body fat stores rather than your next meal. So with adequate fuel coming in, you don't have these signals for hunger. So it's really actually effortless once you can really tap into that fat burning mode. So what's cool is you are going to give people. I was just looking at this again. I'm like, oh, this is so good. It's like perfect. Is that your gift to everybody listening? Is how to find out your perfect intermittent fasting protocol. Like this is so good. So tell everyone about that and these recipes that they're going to get. Yes, so if you go to the link, I have a little quiz and you can take it and because there's a huge social and lifestyle component to IF and like you said, JJ, it really is about finding what works for you. So there's a fun little quiz that you can take and it can tell you if you might do best with a one meal a day approach, like I do, or if you might do best with more of an hours based approach, so it's a good way to just start and try to find what might work for you. But of course, feel free to experiment and really make that work. And then also I have so my book when wine, the book itself has 50 amazing gluten free recipes developed by Aryan Resnick. She's a celebrity chef and the recipes are amazing. They're all gluten free. They say if they are low carb, they say if they're keto, they also say if they're low fodmap for people who have digestive problems, like I do sometimes, but I have some recipes as well that we're gonna give away at that length. So get the recipes and you can get the quiz to find your perfect IF protocol. Awesome. So that is going to be at JJ virgin dot com slash wine book to make it easy for everyone to find JJ virgin dot com slash wine book. And thank you so much, Melanie for being on the show with me today. I super appreciate it. Thank you so much for having me, JJ. This has been absolutely amazing. And I'm listeners can also go to my blog Melanie Avalon dot com for more information from me. But thank you so much for having me. Alrighty. So after the break, I'll be answering a listener's question. So stay with me. Welcome back. This is the time where I answer a listener's question. And as I said, when I was talking to Melanie, I get asked all the time about alcoholic literally all the time. So this one came off one of my Facebook lives and it is a question from Anne who said, all right, so if I'm going to drink, what are the best choices? Now, one of the things that I wrote in the virgin diet as I wrote one of the best, best recipes. And it's a tequila recipe. It's in the virgin diet book. And it is my favorite tequila recipe because there are two forms of alcohol that I would tell you are the better choices. One is tequila. And the other are specific types of wine. And you want to really look at low the low residual sugar wine. So I'm going to do a big shout out to my buddies over dry farm. Wines. They even were at my wedding. So this is how strongly I feel about them. They sponsor all of my events. They're the only one that I serve. Well, not the only one, but generally DY. My wine of choice at all of these events. And hopefully, most of the time, the only one I'll ever serve. And the reason is because they go and get organic wines that do not have any sugar added and super low residual sugars. And so if you look at things like they're actually they actually have a champagne a sparkling wine that you can drink because the one time that I started to struggle with my weight was when I started drinking champagne, which is higher in sugar. So that's the first thing is you want to make sure you're choosing wines that are not higher in either added sugar, sneaking it in or residual sugars. So I tend to reach for pinos and cabernets, but I especially get my red wines from dry farm. Or tequila. And I'm going to share with you one of my favorite tequila drinks. In fact, we'll put in the show notes, my fabulous recipe from the virgin diet, which is a blend of a little bit of pink grapefruit juice, a little bit of fresh lime juice, some smashed up, I think it's called mold, cucumber, and then some basil, oh my gosh, it is so amazing. And then the other thing that I love to do is take ka vidas and there's a kavita flavor called mojito lime. And we'll use mojito lime kavita with tequila and then a little fresh lime. And it is amazing. So that's another one that I like to do too. The biggest thing again is what I mentioned in the show is to be really aware of how you feel and what your limit is and don't make this a daily habit. Rotate it in. And again, you can go to JJ virgin dot com slash wine book and you will get that great quiz for your perfect IF protocol, some sample, recipes, and they'll also give you a link over to my buddies at dry farm. All right, so this is my gratitude portion of the show. I'm going to shout some gratitude out to luminary one and it's facts night and not hype 5 star review. It's so refreshing to have facts and research backing a weight loss protocol very informative and useful and I appreciate that so much. Thank you so much. And this is kind of a big ask. If you have not yet gone and done a review, I would super appreciate if you did, you know, a lot of people, a lot of podcasts out there, a lot of people out there and it's super helpful when we get reviews because it helps people go, oh, okay, I'll listen to that, you know, social proof is everything. So if you haven't had a chance yet, you could just head on over to iTunes while you're there, share it, subscribe to it, and I super appreciate it. And I would love to feature you on my next podcast with a glowing review. All right, see you next time..

"I already Melanie Avalon. Welcome to the show. I'm so glad you're here with me. Thank you so much for having me. I'm so excited. Well, we get the wine question. I don't know, every single day. So for everybody listening, we will be tackling wine drinking alcohol. And everything else. So I know that everybody's excited about that. But before we go there, let's start with you. So your book, what when wine lose weight and feel great with paleo style meals, intermittent fasting, and wine, I mean, that's just such a captivating title. How the heck did you get to that from your start as an actress? Yeah, so basically, so I am an actress and in college I was always trying these crazy fad diets trying to lose weight for the entertainment industry. So calorie counting, the cookie diet. Basically everything fat burners and nothing ever really stuck. It was all very miserable and unsustainable. And that all changed when I actually first tried the low carb approach to diet and that is when I really started realizing that there was something to weight loss or something to our body composition and our health beyond just losing a pound. It was really about changing your metabolism to become a fat burner. And so I went low carb and then I picked up, I became really obsessed. So then I picked up intermittent fasting. I said, I was going to try it for a week. So basically I committed to eating only at dinner. I said, I'll do this for a week. I'll see what happens. And that really threw me into fat burning mode. I had never stopped. That was about 6 or 7 years ago. And then the final piece of the puzzle was I was still eating the processed foods and all of that stuff. I was doing like low carb, but still with all of the things I shouldn't have been having, probably. So I heard about carb junk food? Yeah, Franken foods, you know? Like all the fake sweeteners and all the stuff. So then I heard about paleo, and I was like, how much of a difference can it make? Because I was like, I'm already low carb. I'm already fasting. I'm good, but again, I was like, I'll try it for a week. I'll see what happens. And that was really the final piece in the puzzle, just cutting out those processed foods, cutting out those grain, while I was already cutting out the grains. But cutting out the processed foods made such a huge difference. And so yeah, that's the long story short. Basically, that's the what and the win, the what is the paleo, the witness intermittent fasting. And then I was still having wine in my eating window kind of saw it as a cheat in a way, but when I started doing the research on the topic, I realized that there are a lot of health benefits to wine and I feel very confident now about keeping it in my lifestyle in moderation and I go into the book great lots of details about alcohol metabolism and the relationships to health benefits and all of the details. There's a lot to unpack here. I know so much. Yeah, and you know, I'm actually going to start first with alcohol because that's such a hot topic in the tribe. And I've kind of, well, I'll tell you, my thinking on it, but I want to hear your thinking first. And let's kind of talk through it because I think it'll be super awesome to talk about because literally we get asked about it all the time. Oh my gosh, all the time. So let's start with wine health benefits of alcohol and then we can talk next about some of the issues that could be with it too. So overall, when we look at epidemiological studies, so looking at large populations over good expensive time, it's pretty consistent that moderate alcohol consumption and not even wine. But moderate alcohol consumption correlates. So this isn't cause and effect, but correlates to longevity to a lot of health benefits like heart health, better metabolic factors, better insulin sensitivity, so there's that. And then when you look at wine specifically, it gets, it gets really, it gets really even better as far as the health benefits. And that's likely due to, first of all, the alcohol itself does seem to have some benefits in small amounts. And then the polyphenols that are present in wine. So those are natural compounds that are generated by the grape to actually actually to ward off them. Predators and things like that. But they can have, they can have a really wonderful antioxidant effect in our bodies and correlated to a ton of health benefits. So the ones that people are most familiar with, for example, is resveratrol. And people will often get that as a supplement, but I'm a big advocate of getting it in the drink form, the whole foods form that is naturally found in wine. And then but resveratrol is not the only one. And I'm also a big proponent of not isolating any one thing, but rather getting things like I said in the whole foods form. So there are so many other compounds in wine besides resveratrol that contribute to its health benefits. For example, this is one of my favorites. There's one called PCO channel. Have you heard of this one, JJ? No. So they did this study and I love this because people often think that you can't drink and lose weight. So that's a whole topic. But they actually did a study where they were trying to find a way to minimize for astronauts in space to minimize the detrimental effects of a zero gravity environment on muscle mass. Because the astronauts not without the gravity, their muscles can easily atrophy. And so this is a rodent trial, but they did find that when they put rats into a situation that mimicked the zero gravity lifestyle that the rats that were given if you see a tan all, which is like I said, one of those polyphenols found in wine. They experienced no loss of muscle, whereas the rats that were not given the PCA channel, their muscles wasted away. So there's a lot of exercise, mimetic benefits and wine. There's so much. I could talk about it for probably like hours. All right, so there's so there's the good, what about the dark side? The dark side. Well, alcohol is the body does see it. It does have a toxic effect on the body. So there is that. So when we have. There's that. There's that toxic thing..
A highlight from God's Fire - The Expression Of His Love To Know Me
"Welcome to live behind the veil and atmosphere where men and women of God speak his word to this age and bring his kingdom to this earth. Do you have ears to hear and eyes to see what God is doing in this hour? Let us join our host and the family's conversation as the Holy Spirit is unfolding. The word behind the veil. Hello, podcasters. I'm Ron your host, and today we're going to be talking about God's fire. Have you experienced God's fire in your life? Well, today we're going to initiate by faith the fire of God in our lives. He comes and refines out of us. The impurities that need to go in our lives so that we can stand in his presence. Because our God is a consuming fire. I am so thankful for all of the experiences and trials that meetings with the lord and things that I've been through. Because they produce a stability. Right. In your life, I don't have those ups and downs anymore. As far as my walk with the lord and faith, for that solid as a rock, there's a foundation there. You bet. You bet. When you're walking like this and God's putting you through the fire, and because they went through it, they're going to rule in rain with him. If you haven't gone through the fire and you haven't had all that stuff burned out, you're not going to be one of those that are going to rule in rain with him. And it's a choice. It very much, very much. I wanted to read here out of Matthew 7 because Ron and I talked about this some time ago, really kind of created a fear of the lord in our hearts. This is 21 through 23. Not everyone who says to me lord lord will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. But he who does the will of my father, many will say to me on that day, lord lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in her name cast out demons, and in your name perform many miracles, and then I will declare to them, I never knew you. Depart from me, you who practice lawlessness. I know people raising people from the dead, healing the sick, and I wonder, is it the lord doing that through him? Revelations gives a warning about that. If he doesn't know you, you better go talk to him and say, put me through the fire now because I want you to know me. I don't care how much I know you. If you don't know me, if you don't know me, I'm in trouble. That haunts me, that really. That scripture that you're talking about right there, Alan, is just huge. Yeah. Because I'm saying this with not anything but just the love in a brokenness for people, but there are so many Christians out there that feel like they're good people. And they probably are good people. Yeah, they're good people. But your goodness isn't going to cut it. No. It's only Christ nature that's going to cut it with the father. He's looking for his son's nature in you. That's why he deals with you or he wants to deal with you daily, he's trying to burn out the dynamic nature and he's trying to impart Christ nature, because there is a Judgment Day. There is a line that's drawn in the sand. There is a time that it's too late. Yes. You know, there really is. Unfortunately for those who refuse, the dealings in the fire and all this at God's lovingly trying to bring to our hearts, then there's no choice, but a terrifying expectation of judgment, and it's what the scripture says, it's a terrifying thing to fall in the hands of a living God. Well, it's terrifying for who, for those who won't submit, that's right. Won't cement won't open up to the lord's dealings now. And it's all love. It's his love. We may not see it that way as human beings, we were going through the fire, well, look at a little child. He doesn't really appreciate you when you're disciplining him in spanking him. But you know as well as I do without that, he's not going to be asset to society. It's the same thing with the spiritual side. You're not going to be a blessing or something that God can use, or wants to be in his kingdom, if you won't receive the discipline and the fire now. It's just that simple really. That is. Do you want to be a son of God? There you go. Do you want to walk in his presence? To want to have the fullness of Christ in you, then you've got to go through the steps of the fire. That's part of what you have to do. Someone should talk about the ten virgins. Yeah. I was just thinking the same thing. Dan, I don't like that scripture scares me because you've got ten versions they've all been purified. They've gone through the fire. And they're in a heart, isn't full of his presence, and isn't full of the Holy Spirit. And the door shuts and they're out. And I'm like, oh my God. Christ came baptizing with the Holy Spirit and fire. And it's now in this time that we're starting to understand the fire. We're seeing that, yes, we've walked in a measure of the fire, but there's so much more to it at its been reserved for this day based upon how the fire has worked in our lives. Yeah. Search meal God, and know my heart, we talk about the unseen, restrictions, the unseen chains. That's the point. They're unseen. You're not aware of them. But the Holy Spirit is aware of them, and sometimes you go through things in, you know, you've been trying to walk with the lord with all of your heart. You're really, really pursuing him. And then the fire gets hotter. Yep. It's because you are pursuing. It's because you are reaching in that the fire gets hotter because he's burning off those things as you're not even aware of that's restricting you. Even good things, even things that you would call God. In your life, or maybe we're God in your life. Older levels of walking with him, he's got to set you free from those things so that you can go up higher, and to a deeper level with them in a deeper relationship, how are you going to do that? There's no way you're going to do that because you cherish those things. Those are your isaacs. Yes. Yes. Will you talk about a hard thing? Yeah. Putting your isaacs, we call them isaacs, spiritualized spiritual meetings with the lords, things that God's worked in you that you cherish. Right? Here's Joe. I want to bless job. He's perfect in all his ways. What does he do? He puts the fire to his life. And burns, I mean, from outside on liquor, they're looking at job and they're kind of going, it looks like he's destroying him. Yeah. Yeah. And it's just not what he's doing. God's loving him. And he's going, I'm going to bring you closer to me. And at the end, job goes, you know, I knew of you, but now I see you face to face. In others an old Johnny Cash song going through my head right now. And you know what it is? The ring of fire. Bring a fire. And it burns burns burns at ring of fire. I went down, down, down, and the flames went higher. Ron, am I understanding you correct at this principle of the fire in the Holy Spirit is not new to the scripture? You know it sounds like maybe he started that right in genesis somewhere. When he promised Noah he would never destroy the world by water again, he decides to use fire and stand. Alan, when you said that thing about him destroying the earth by fire, it talks about how God has reserved fire, that that's supposed to be only for the Avalon as angels, but those who refuse to walk with the lord, and God we cry out for him right now. We really do. We cry out. We cry out for the ones that are unsaved. The ones that are running, the ones who don't even care, the ones that are totally indifferent. The ones that are rebellious, we cry out for him right now, lord. You know, we reach out by faith in our hearts with his love and disbelieve that we create an open door for all these. Satan should be so lonely in hell. Exactly. You know, he should get not one person, not one person on this earth, should he doesn't deserve to have one person on this earth. It should be left alone. Yes, not even the lame, the halt nor the blind will be left behind. You know, it was the first atom who brought sin into the world, and the second atom, or Jesus Christ, who brought life back and so, with that Ron, I'm standing with you because I believe that as soon as Satan is bound, then people are going to see the truth. For what it is. But people are accustomed to hearing Satan's lies that they don't know the truth. They don't know the truth about Salvation or what we're even talking about, you know? Right. I lose the hearts of people to open up to the father and hell family. Today we've experienced his word being that fire, which refines our spirits and that hammer, which shatters the rocky elements in our lives. So that we can become those vessels of honor and the pure offerings of worship that is pleasing in his sight. Experiencing the impartation of God's word through his family is life.

Apple Decides Users Will 'Follow' Rather Than 'Subscribe' To Podcasts
"On this episode of talking about something that apple. Podcasts has just done in a lot of people talking about it. that is you're no longer subscribing to podcast on podcast. You are following podcast. James cridland pod news wrote an interesting article about it. I'm going to read it here because it's very short. Maybe not an article just a few bullet points. Paragraphs follower podcasts apple. Podcast is stop. Using subscribe a small change with big impact no more subscribers podcasting moves to follow exclusive avalon. Cast will no longer use the word subscribe in a few weeks. Listeners will be invited to follow their favorite podcast instead this seemingly small change could dramatically affect the industry. Tom webster from edison research says forty seven percent of people who don't currently listen to podcast that subscribing to a podcast will cost money describing it as a stone shoe of podcast growth run. He tells pod news today. Apple spotify and youtube are the three most widely used services to play podcast and now the word subscribe means automatically downloaded for free. Exactly none of them. Podcasters will have no choice but to adapt their language accordingly or risk confusing listeners. Other podcast apps have already changed spotify. Audible us follow. Stitcher uses plus follow an amazon uses. Heart follow meanwhile google podcasts in cashbox. Us plus subscribe and overcast and castro us subscribe. Here's james opinion. The word subscribes been confusing potential listeners. For more than fifteen years. It's time for every podcast app to copy spotify stitcher apple and amazon by using follow and for every podcast or to follow their lead. The way we talk about podcasts has changed forever and that's probably a good thing. My thoughts on the subject is that words matter. This is why you hear me all the notes from an episode episode notes. They're not show notes. They are episode notes following a music artist on spotify that is different from subscribing to a podcast. When you follow an artist on spotify what happens is maybe get updates. If the artist has a new record maybe if you've got something like the discover weekly playlist or the new release playlist comes out on friday. Maybe you have one of the songs from the artists that you follow within those playlist. So if you're on spotify you're used to hitting that follow button following make sense on spotify. Does it make sense for a podcast app. I don't know maybe we'll in the future to me. Follow lacks the commitment. That subscribe does again. I think that words are important. And i think that it's up to you if you want people to subscribe to your podcast or follow to explain whatever that means.
The Most Reliable Used Cars
"So i've had an obsession forever about why buying a used vehicle is so much better for your wallet than buying new. There are a lot of people who love new vehicle smell. They want that new vehicle and if it works for you financially. That's fine but for most people buying used is gonna be a much better choice but there are people like a vehicle that feels new. And that's why to me. The compromise has been historically a three model year old vehicle. So right now it'd would be twenty eighteen because the twenty one or what out on dealer lots now so when you buy a vehicle. That's three years old. As a general back of the envelope rule it will have lost roughly a third of its value some models substantially more than that others a little less but generally about a third of the value has been wiped out in those first three years even though the life of the vehicle is so today with vehicles running quarter million miles Not at all unusual. That's like normal now where it used to be hundred thousand miles pretty much. The expected reliable life span of a vehicle but vehicles vary a lot and quality and consumer reports has put out a recommended list of bike category. The most reliable vehicles you can buy depending on size. And i want to start with the most popular part of the vehicle market and these are the most reliable three-year-old suv's based on consumer reports deep dive research and again. These are all twenty eight teens. The honda cr v. honda hr v. The hyundai kona alexis annex the mazda. Five and the toyota highlander. So if you're interested in an suv. Those particular ones are the most reliable. Now when we talk about Cars mid size and large cars the most reliable eighteens the mazda six toyota avalon toyota. Camry accurate t.

The honda fit the mazda three the toyota corolla and the toyota prius and the toyota prius c in addition the toyota prius prime. Could there be enough. Prius is on there and the volkswagen beetle so The only american owned company that made the list was chevy bolt but most of these other vehicles are actually manufactured in north america. Even if they're owned by quote unquote foreign automakers that a vehicle. That's very reliable. Starting you're looking at a vehicle that's very reliable is key but not enough. You want to do to other things you want to check the van to see if the vehicle has been in any major accident and it's time of ownership that the van research would show and then the other thing is a condition to purchase.

Sydney isolated from rest of Australia as COVID outbreak grows
"Saw christmas wig. Norman and over the weekend we have seen. The sydney outbreak will the northern beaches outbreak really grow and restrictions of coming to place when we said good bata audience on friday nominee. Pretty optimistic that we were going to be out of now these thing before. Christmas is still feeling that way. I'm nervous i think. I don't think they're doing enough. The risk is that it overwhelms the contact tracing. It's just you. Don't you never know where it is. And yeah probably called it wrongly pepsi two racks about it but it is There are a lot of cases. They and they're not just in the northern beaches area when you look through the list of locally acquired cases there you there in sydney there in the north northern suburbs there in the eastern suburbs. not many. but there's just a few and you don't need many. This started with just one case from overseas. Probably aircrew of the prices. Speculating on somebody being in You'll getting exemption but either way it's from overseas and the system is broken down. Basically new south wales luck has run out so new south wales approach up until now has just been really intense contact tracing and that actually been pretty successful with keeping a handle on the cases. They're considering the work houses a few months ago. So the restrictions that they operating in the northern beaches a pretty tough. But there's still more that they could be doing. Isn't it well. I just think it's called smacking. But haven't mandated masks sydney white. I mean that's the first thing you do. You just tell everybody living in greater sydney soon as you walk how she wear a mask. I know you can't transmit it very well but taking a mask on an office you go inside just what soon as you go out you put on your mask and that means review go. You've got your mask on. It's cheap effective by seventy percent. You don't know where the viruses just mandate. I do not know why the new south wales government is so done on mask. Wearing how much of a problem is it that we still don't really know exactly how this outbreak kicked off. Oh it's huge that you know how well i think we know how tall it kicked off. Somehow from somebody from overseas the was negative until the tenth of december the genomic strongly suggests from overseas perhaps the united states and so it spread from somebody who's coming from overseas. The question was aircrew. Was somebody returning to from overseas somebody who was given exemption to go home and didn't stay at home. Who knows what the story might be. But it's definitely from overseas trouble is we don't know when and we're not really sure where we know where the super spreading events where the super spreading events in a bowling club and the avalon oursel- and there are other hotspots around hotspots places where people have been but essentially a very big dense people having a lot of fun good on them into there was a problem at that point but that was a super spreading event and from there. It spread outwards. And it's not just to satisfy curiosity that we want to know where these outbreak kicked off from. We need to know where the chink is armagh so that we can make sure that this doesn't happen again. Well no it's more than that. It's it's that's part of it but that's kind of done the track a little bit when you're dealing with an a pandemic that breaks out in clusters you've got to find all the clusters and you've got to find out where the cluster started so whilst you got to say well okay teagan you are at the avalon bowling club on on a certain date which was high risk and everybody that you've been in contact with. We want to know we actually want go before you know what happened. What were you doing two three four five days before then before you tested positive where where you and actually start the contact tracing back in time in history and what they're doing now is they're trying to do that new south wales back to the twenty third of november to give a bit of a margin beyond what they think might be. The first cases roundabout the first of december. So you to go back in time as well as get the immediate context and by there's going to be secondary context is going to be people who got first time around To second time around and it's out in the city and in other suburbs as well as outside the northern beaches and as we find out from victoria. it's very hard to ring-fence a suburb. But as we said i think in the last grown cast the northern beaches are fairly straightforward to ring fences the much more well defined than some of the really big in warfare suburbs in melbourne's northwest corridor. Really impossible but even so. It's still very very hard. It's a big densely populated area and ring-fencing is is only going to have a limited effect. You've really got to ring-fence greater sydney for a few days to see what's happening and maybe for a couple of weeks. It's christmas yes. It's tough but businesses already winding for christmas. The economic impact should not be huge. If you lock down sydney and just get this thing under control and not mess around. What we've seen from overseas is quite clear. And it's quite clear from victoria as well if you mess around and do a little of this a little bit of that. It doesn't work. it's simply does not work. You've actually got a fully lockdown victoria did. And if you do it you don't have to for too long every day. You wait can be a week at the other end and the other thing that we should be doing. Is speeding up vaccine approval. I know that we've said we can wait but now the face. We studies in the morning when victoria was in lockdown. But now the face re studies are in and it was fine to wait while we didn't have a problem we weren't there was no reason to just you know russian along because we could learn from overseas. But now that you've got this outbreak and it's big and is going to spread potentially through australia's biggest city and crippled potentially cripple the economy. There's a very good argument for getting going with immunization. So the tj good administration simply has to give a approval. I know go on about how they don't have an emergency approval process but that can be organized and they can they can be. There are ways for them to give urgent approval for this vaccine. It's not bureaucratically impossible and actually get the whatever they've got here in stock in terms of the five vaccine get into sydney's northern beaches and ring-fence immunization give it to healthcare workers their age care. Give it to the elderly and then you can give it to an efficient way to use it before it spreads. I realized we don't know that it's prevents. Transmission always really knows it prints disease but like everything else you just taking a chance that that it will prevent transmission and hope that it does and give it in that light. There's a lot that we do with this pandemic. we're not absolutely sure what what is the end of the individual things that work but you just gotta hit it. And now we've got a vaccine. We should hit in places like the uk and the us imperative to vaccinate is pretty obvious because the scale of the outbreak there is so massive in global terms. What's happening in sydney is pretty mine like does it still justify fostering vaccination he is because it could become big quickly quickly and be very difficult contain and create a of time now. This is a different public health. Aim this is much more like what. They did with smallpox with smallpox in poor countries massey. Muniz ation didn't work. It was very hard to implement it the way they eliminated. Smallpox was exactly this. This sort of ring-fenced vaccination you find a case and you immunize people around that person so that you you get this sort of halo. Immunized immunized effect and with the pfizer vaccine. You get fifty percent effectiveness at least with the disease with just the first does and within a few days and then one thousand four two or three three weeks so you. The effect is pretty quick. Would be an of faith that it prevents transmission. But it's worth ago. Why would we sit on this. Just go so at the moment the restrictions that are in place in new south wales in sydney are in place until wednesday night so basically the day before christmas eve is that going to be long enough or are we to say these extended while the restrictions are only on the northern beaches not greater metropolitan sydney. So that's not control the pandemic. I mean my. That's my prediction. It will not control the pandemic unfortunately spreading covid nineteen spreading. So that's the problem. I hope it will. Let's hope that contact tracers and not being overwhelmed and that the traces that are the cases that are popping up in south west sydney in eastern suburbs of city in the northern suburbs like hornsby they can pin them down the they're saying that they're traceable to the northern beaches outbreak but who they spread them to are the contact. Are they able to trace to them. So let's hope that they do the do contain it. But that's the so then. You've got the the lockdown simply there. You've got no mandated masks. They're just pleading with people to wear masks but just mandate masks sydney white right now. Just do it why. It's so frustrating that they're not doing that. Evidence based approach so christmas becomes unfortunately in sydney a superspreader event. Potentially if they haven't sorted this out and you're really done to very low levels of new cases where adly quickly quickly if you're not very low levels of new cases. They can't afford to allow christmas to go ahead with big family occasions. Otherwise it's going to go nuts unfortunately so the other thing that we really don't know much about yet he's exactly who's who when it comes to these outbreak and that was something that we were quite critical of the victorian authorities about when they were grappling with. The outbreak is new south. Wales being transparent enough well looking at the data. They're giving it is much easier to understand. There were lots of times in victoria. Had no clue whether we're talking about change. During the day the definitions were awed. Here you can see the breakdown you can see where the cases are. You can see where where there's locally acquired but they don't know where the sources. I think it's two or three at the moment is a little bit of discrepancy from the press conference and what they've published since the press conference. Yesterday there were two at press conference soon to be three on the table by today. I'm not sure we haven't had time too early for us to luke. Why would why we record this so nasty question. It does seem more transparent but what's lacking is public health measures in the community to control it and give the contact tracers a break and let them follow it through contact tracers but no matter how good the are if you get too large numbers of cases they get overwhelmed and getting extremely tired whereas masks would help just reduce that spread that little bit. That might make a difference. Yeah it's a really critical a couple of days in the lead up to christmas. But we're going to be keeping you informed but that's all we've got time for today
What could Sydney's outbreak mean for Christmas?
"And when we created alison. Yesterday they were amid three cases. I think and that has blossomed over the past twenty four hours or sorry which really after several weeks of really really low levels in australia has come as a real bolt from the blue. I mean what do we know. And what don't we know about what could have happened here. So northern beaches. It's a peninsula that goes north from the harbour skirting with one side of the ocean. Size pit water. Goes up to a narrow point. Barron joy head at palm beach kind of starts runabout manley. So that's where it is and we talked. Yesterday the two people were up at avalon. What overnight and you as as people listen to corona cast. It could well have changed so we apologize if the numbers are not quite right but as we record corona cast there are seventeen cases in all twelve nuance that emerged during the day. And the where doing what they promised. Early on in the day was that for the five they knew about they were going to do genomic testing on them and get results back last night but as we record this we still don't have the results of these. What we know is actually quite a lot. Quite quickly is that they've identified a drummer. Who in a band and played in three to ourselves in one club. Penrith ourselves the kirby club. And i've i've alone our cell and three people who were part of this cluster. Apparently were in the avalon oursel- so they know quite a lot about where these people have caught this what they know about the twelve the extra twelve during the day as we speak. We don't know very much about so. This is a cluster. that's growing. It's a bit like south australia. In the sense that you can get really spooked by the fact that you've got big numbers quickly or you can be reassured that the contact tracing is pretty good and it's picking up things very quickly i choose to be reassured by it so i think it is going to get much as it's gonna get much bigger than it is but they're really tracking it down. A lot of people on the northern beaches are getting tested. How are long queues and when you look at. The pictures of people are wearing masks which is fantastic.
Dual Sleep And Why It's Good For You
"Already instead of start things off we have follow up something that we said we would get back to you last time which I feel like every time we do that we We don't always get back to it, but we're getting back to it. So yeah, emily had asked us about her shift work weight loss intermittent fasting 's like crazy sleep schedule where she would sleep from ten PM to two. AM Do a paper out from two to four am and then sleep from four to seven am. which was very crazy sleep schedule. We talked about the like fascinating. was. It made Victorian people I think in general just being like the I've just read articles that indicated. That's how they live like medieval times or I don't know that was the natural way to be yes. They would like go to sleep and then like wake up and then go to sleep. So I asked the residence sleep expert Dr Cur- personally who I've had on the melon avalon biohacking podcast linked to that in the show notes the I asked him about it and obviously knew everything about it. He said it was called dual sleep and it occurred roughly twenty two longitudinal above or below the equator and it was because nights were ten to twelve hours at night. And the people would sleep into have the night and they would like wake up in the middle to do activities and hang out while the kids were still asleep. So that's different than like today where we're always sleeping, you know we're lucky for sleeping eight hours and the reason I'm bringing this up is because I think we were contemplating that really oh so maybe this is like a good thing. It's not an ideal situation that situation would be if you were sleeping like if it was like a twelve hour night and you're waking up in the middle so. I think our originally answer still stands about that schedule because they slept from dark too dark, right? That was the difference those people were sleeping from dark too dark and that was too much sleep. Yeah. Probably today would wake up in the middle and then had their second half of the that makes sense but you know what my body is still tuned. To that I swear I could live that way because as soon as it starts to get dark I wanna go to bed I don't care if that's nine thirty at night or five thirty at night. If it's dark I WANNA get into bed I probably should start just doing that. Go to bed wake up in the middle of the night get up. To do some stuff, go back to bed I bet I think that might be my natural. Goes might be my natural way of being I might. Sylvia. Wake in that time when you wake up because you go to bed so like when does it get dark? You would go to bed at like. Five o'clock if it's the wintertime. Okay. See Sleep from like five to like eleven. Oh, and then you wake up and then we could hang out. And then had my second night's sleep and we could both back to same.

They're said to include a five point four, inch iphone twelve, a six point one, inch iphone twelve, Max, a six point one, inch, iphone twelve pro and a six point seven inch iphone twelve pro Max. All are expected to support five G. though. As we've discussed before their spy G, then there's five G. Apple insider says, there is the possibility all will include support for sub six GIGAHERTZ bands. But only some models may offer the high-speed m M or millimeter wave support. I like to call it no A. You can really taste the Geez. As. For the other hardware, the report says apple is still expected to reveal air bags. It's object tracking accessory. Taking advantage of Ultra wideband and Bluetooth the accessory could attach to keys or other objects and could be found by the users find my APP by using the existing network of iphones in the world to help locate the tag. Interestingly there may actually be an air tag on the event announcement. If you haven't seen that the invitation art is both simple and pleasing to the eye. To dark blue background with four seemingly translucent circles on it transitioning from lighter blue to orange. AT THE CENTER OF THE CENTER CIRCLE IS NAPA logo. Prolific Apple leaker. John. Prosser couldn't help noticing how much that senator shaded circle with the Apple Logo looks like an airtight rendering he'd seen and shared last month.

Says, you can also take a screen shot when the a are feature is running. You can use that to convince your friends that you are a wizard. Of, course, there's also the possibility of some sort of audio something. We heard yesterday that apple has pulled third party headphones and speakers from its online store. That's gotten folks who were expecting smaller home pod and on ear apple branded headphones. Expecting the more fervently. Next Tuesday's as good a time as any I suppose. As for when we can see what we'll see. Isn't it weird that we're still doing things like it's the before times. Somebody somewhere is going to hit play at ten.

Continuous Glucose Monitors
"Hi everybody and welcome. This is episode number one, hundred, eighty, one of the intermittent fasting podcast I'm melanie avalon and imagine Stevens Hi everybody. How are you today Jen I am fabulous I am just immersed in all sorts of amazing data and learning about myself until like to elaborate I would. Melanie knows because she knows what I'm doing but for readers of Fast Feast repeat and even readers of. Fear you know I've been talking about personalized nutrition since I saw that famous Ted talk that I talk about with Dr Erin Seagal I saw it I twenty seventeen and it literally changed my life to understand that we all have personalized responses to foods and some of it's based on our genetic background. But a lot of it is in our gut microbiome and really just hormonal health in general. In fast, Feast repeat I talked about the work that Tim Spector is doing. He's my favorite Gut microbiome researcher from the UK and he had a study called the predict study, and then the predict to study which some of my friends did a year ago and I am now participating in the third round of this predict three it's with an APP called Zoe and he's one of the collaborators with. It but as part of the study for the past seven days I've been wearing a continuous blood glucose monitor that they sent me and I have to send it back, which is so sad because man is an opening to see how my body responds to different foods with my blood glucose. So I can see you know what it's doing all during the day all during the night up 'cause day. On how it responds to foods I'm so happy to report that I'm not surprised the foods that I thought that worked well for many guess what they work. Well, they do. So are you eating some of their stuff and your stuff? Well, I had to do that for two days. There were two days where I had to start the day eating these muffins that they sent me Oh, my Lord. Yuck. For listeners, we wanted to record the podcast earlier, which was like I can't record a podcast after eating the muffin. Hours right. I mean I was predicting that it was before I had even eaten the muffins but I had a feeling because I had to eat them in the morning cacique. You couldn't have anything before the muffins except water. Wake up in the morning and drink black coffee. So I had to eat the muffins and then wait four hours and then eat the muff a there were actually different muffins and then wait two hours and then I could you know have real food the first day of that opened at eight am and I never eat at eight am even on vacation you know if I'm going to have breakfast, we usually end up doing more of a brunch. So I can't think of the last time I've had food at eight am but I had to eat. I think it was three muffins that had been frozen and then I microwave dumb and the first round of muffins I think they're testing fat clearance like how quickly your body clears out fat after you eat a high fat meal. These were high fat muffins. There are high fat. Because, you could tell by reading the ingredients list you would not have probably eaten these muffins. going. To say. This is not a melanie study. No, you probably wouldn't have eaten the muffins but the first ingredient was like safflower oil or something Oh. Gosh. I know I, know I know but I ate them muffins than I was so crabby for those three hours 'cause they weren't satisfying at all. You know if I could put some butter on there or some strawberry jam but no I had to they tasted like a mix between a cornbread muffin and pound cake. But with less flavor said, then the the second set of muffins they were like gluten free cash I duNno? low-fat Muffins. But My my blood glucose responded great to both sets them up I had to do this blood test or I had to like squeeze out all this blood on this card and send it off to be anyway they're going to test the. I think my fat clearance because you had to do a certain number of hours after that, and it gives you a lot of information, but I also had to send an poop sample. That's right up my alley. Yeah. So that was interesting. It was a little more hardcore than the one I did for the American gut project. I won't go into details, but it was interesting. Let's just say and then I took them all to the post office and mail them in. Also. Fun, this guy like what's on your arm it was continuous blood glucose monitor and you know and I thought that was very bold question to ask a stranger at the post office but I explained it. But I should've said this is poop in this box, but I didn't. is putting it on hard. It was actually so very easy. It has the ability shared, but I did it you stick it to the back of your arm and you just in this little thing and you just click and then it just POPs. said it was easier than the finger stick. Okay two. Brands of CGM I'm betting great now. I haven't done either one yet. Well, this information is just so important I think because it's it's showed me. Like I had one meal that I've eaten so far that did not work very well for me. It was the only one and it was a flat bread topped with like a a lemon ricotta and then sauteed Brussels sprouts and then like Parmesan cheese and then a hot honey that one shot my blood glucose up higher than anything has so far probably the honey. But when I've eaten potatoes when I've eaten rice even. Toast. With egg on top. I. Have a very slow steady. Roz than a slow steady back down. I think that flat bread didn't have a lot of fat with the I mean had some fat but I probably normally have more fat with my carbs. So it just kinda spiked to me right up.

Change Is A Work In Progress
"Let's start with a letter from a young man. Who called himself struggling? This was a letter that we answered back in October. It was the episode that was called. This was Cheryl's brilliant idea. You Must Change Your Life from the beautiful real capone and we talked with the amazing author Mitchell Jackson. The letter was from a seventeen year. Old Guy couldn't stop smoking pot. His mom had threatened to kick him out of the House. He had big dreams to leave his small town but he could not stop getting in trouble in the ASS. Basically how do I get on the right path to set me up for this amazing future that I have in my head but can't make happen in my life to me? That was such an interesting question. Because you know we just get all of these letters and we really think about you. Know what. What do we want to delve into on the show? What ground haven't we covered and of course in every episode in some ways? We're trying to help people get set on the right path. But we'd never really looked at this issue in that kind of larger way like this very kind of general I'm screwing up. And how do I not screw up? And what better letter writer to address this question to then a seventeen year old. I don't think any of us at seventeen Felt like necessarily we were On exactly the right path. I certainly did you Steve. No I think actually at seventeen if you feel that you're on the right path. It's a trap. I believe that our childhood experience in our adolescent experiences so intense so tumultuous. I feel like being an adolescent. It's almost like you could lay the softest fingertip on you know a thirteen year old and they would experience as as an earthquake. They're so exquisitely sensitive to things and I think that struggling was right in the thick of it we read the letter. We got from struggling and response to our advice. Sure hello sugars. I was extremely touched to hear your response to my letter. I wrote it not really expecting a response but more for peace of mind. That's why my heart almost dropped when I was tuning into the show and heard my letter being read oddly. Enough some of the things that were said on the show were quite similar to the things. People have been trying to tell me this whole time. That's good news right Cheryl. Yeah that's why I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I haven't been doing super great at getting my life together about a month. After your response aired my mom caught me smoking weed and I was actually kicked out for a while I lived in a trailer park and my life was pretty wild. While I was living there I was able to get to work and continue to hold my job but I was dropped from my school classes due to inactivity. I was basically a high school dropout on my way to completely screwing over my future but oddly enough when I wasn't living with her my mom and I got along better than we have a long time. I think she just needed to realize that. I'm figuring things out on my own and I'm old enough to where I need to learn certain things without her help. Since then I've moved back in but I'm currently looking at other places and was able to spend the holidays with my family. I went to my school and got re-enrolled into the last few classes. I need to graduate. I still have my job and apparently working full time. I know that my reality isn't super great right now but I don't think I'm completely screwed either. My family's still loves me endlessly AVALON GOING FOR ME. I don't regret anything that has led up to this point. I learned a lot in this past month. And a half that has matured me and made me realize I have a lot to learn before I truly call myself an adult. Well it might seem like I didn't really listen to your advice which might be true given everything that's transpired in the past two months. I would like to speak on it by saying it gave me so much to think about getting away from everything by moving away doesn't exactly solve everything in a weird way. Your troubles have this way of following you wherever you go. It made me realize that. In order to achieve ambitions and dreams. I have to play the cards that have been dealt to me and not only that have to be smart about it. There's a million ways I can really screw up my life but there's a number of ways I can do things right. I have every intention of doing what I dream of doing. I'd like to end this email by responding to what Steve asked me to do in the episode. Write another letter about my dreams and goals and he did. I can't tell you Steve. How much I love that. He did the homework the homework. Steve will you read the letter? He wrote two sugars a teenager on the cusp of adulthood age. Seventeen at a lot of big dreams and goals that I want to achieve my biggest goal in life is to give back and change lives. I want to do this by helping people through hard times similar to those I've experienced myself I'm going to graduate high school and pursue a degree in social work. The ultimate goal is to get my masters with a minor in psychology. I WANNA start by working in treatment centers and as my career advances. I want to become a therapist. All I want in life is to make sure people know. They're not alone in what they're going through. I know I have a lot of work to put in before I get there but I know it'll be worth it in the end. Thanks so much for your advice and just know that. I'll always carry that wisdom with me sincerely struggling but hopeful how struggling hopeful you really touched my heart. I I can't tell you how much You are response to our advice and then the letter you wrote to us Means to me yeah. I mean some of these lines in a weird way. Your troubles have this way of following you wherever you go that might have been lifted directly out of Catcher in the Rye and it's not weird. It's the thing we every human comes to realize that at some point and the fact that struggling but falls realized it by seventeen is going to be helpful to him. I beg to differ. I think actually a lot of people don't realize that and they chasing the next locale or chasing the next job or chasing the next Relationship without realizing. Hey your troubles are gonNA follow. You Really Echoes. What you were talking about shirl that you know no matter where we go where carrying that same stuff. That sounds set of issues. I always say to To Writing Students With Kurt Vonnegut. Said you know my Kurt Vonnegut. You're going to be writing about your family for the rest of your life struggling but hopefully you're really a reliable narrator. You know that things aren't perfect right now. You know that not. Everything is ideal but in the big picture. The fact that you're able to step back and forgive yourself for some of the missteps he you know and I think this idea of letting go of regret and saying you know what everything that happened. Living in the trailer park getting kicked out of the House. All of that was necessary. All a part of what makes you who you are. It really makes me hopeful struggling but hopeful that that You are going to get where
"Happy Birthday Week. While we're all at home in the new normal feeling anything but normal the one thing worth celebrating life itself the pandemic has shown us just how fragile and beautiful life is the veneer of invincibility that we built up over. The last decades has been stripped away in an instant. We're now learning what we always have known but not acted upon which is the each day's precious and magical and that we can't take anything most especially health and the health of our planet for granted in that spirit of adventure. There's one place in San Francisco I've been trying to explore for nearly twenty years. The remote Farallon islands thirty miles off the Golden Gate Bridge on a clear day. You can see this. Cluster of three main islands from the shore. But here's the catch. They closed to the public. Because the farallones one of the largest seabird colonies in the nation the islands also hosts two seals great white sharks and many different species of whale. The farallon islands national wildlife refuge is one of sixty three such refugees around the country and the waters surrounding. The islands are protected as part of the great farallones National Marine Sanctuary for decades point Blue Conservation Science Petaluma based research organization whose mission is to conserve birds wildlife and ecosystems through innovative science partnerships and outreach his continuously had teams of scientists located on the Farallon's point blue has a formal research agreement with the US Fish and Wildlife Service. Every few weeks point blue works with local boat owners who volunteer to resupply the Farallon scientists with food. I was lucky enough to tag along for the ride. I get on the boat. The outer limits in Sao Salida and we begin our journey. I'm joined by Pete Wolsey Buck who's point blue's senior marine ecologist and spent more time on the islands than anyone else on the planet while still on the boat. I stopped by asking Pete. Exactly how long point blue has been conducting research on the Pharisees? Yeah point blue has been working out on the fare lawns for more than fifty years We've had people on the island every single day since April Third Ikin. Sixty eight which is crazy. And it's just hard to believe that this fat much data scientific data going all the way back to the sixties. It is pretty incredible. There are not very many Continuous long term data sets especially for seabird monitoring throughout the world and the have one in an area special is a fair launch is in an incredible opportunity. And if you know this pizza I've been trying to get to the farallones like twenty two. It's a big deal super foggy today at does it. I don't know hopefully the Fogle if you've been out here a long time once you once you bet I think most times the fog lists sometimes mid to late morning But we have a lot of very very few days out of the airlines. The combination of the cold ocean water and warmer temperatures on the mainland tends to lead to fog out at the highlands. And you could have days when you get out there to the islands can't even see it until he could get on land. I mean yeah we like now maybe half a mile and I'd just just saw and it's pretty mad. I mean it's magical. They just kind of jot. How of the Pacific do you remember? First time seeing the farallones I do. I was going out. This was in the spring of two thousand. I was going out as a volunteer research. Assistant and We were on a long slow boat ride on a very rough day and We started sailing at about midnight. We got to the island about seven. Am and shortly. After the Sun was rising I started to see the islands poking up over the horizon and it was just an incredibly magical site by still remember a Dan. I still have the image in my head. Yeah it's it does feel like the mist of Avalon where the knights of King Arthur would like see. The Misr is and it kind of reminds me of some magical place. How the hell do we get from this big bill up on the cliffs above us it? It looks like a treacherous. I mean what? What's the procedure? It is rather complicated So the islands themselves are very rocky. There's no safe place to land a boat Island just kind of jumped right out of the ocean as you were saying so what we do. Is we have a crane. That's on the east side of the island and we use that to lower small landing craft into the ocean and that will drive out our boat and then from there it will shuttle the people and gear back and forth between the island and the the vote. That's burning us out here. The boat look Mike Below as like his has made out of metal. I've never seen like such a small wise. The vote metal Yeah Orlando Craft is what's called a safe vote and it's a solid aluminum hull with the flotation of styrofoams flotation secured. Around the outside of it. So it's a very sturdy boat and you can imagine when you're lifting it up out of the water with your in it or people in it And and you're moving it back and forth in his rough environment. You want very sturdy boat. So we're we're very happy to have it for them but then it looks like we have to be light. Lifted like fifty feet in the air. Which I've I've presumed that we're going to be in the boat. When that happens. It looks terrifying. Oh It's definitely unique and You know if you're afraid of heights it could be terrifying but now you tell me I I will assure you. It's all very safe You know we've been doing it this way for a very long time going into a little cove. You're going to hook the vote onto this crane and then you're gonNA lifted about thirty feet up in the air and swinging it over landing so it is a very unique and interesting way to use a boat.

R.'s topics in cars for twenty twenty all right let's move up about ten thousand dollars thirty five to forty five thousand active Toyota so we're we're looking at the Toyota Avalon and the topic for a large sedan the Avalon it for years has done well Consumer Reports testing but this redesigned model has really turned it up a notch it has luxury and comfort the compared to the vehicle that might even cost twenty thousand dollars more I would you get the V. six model which is smooth and at the switch shifting eight speed transmission or you get the hybrid model which gets about forty two miles per gallon overall it is a winner any way you cut it but one of the models that that really blew us away in this category was the kia telluride this is a neat size three row SUV that you really honestly came in like a wrecking ball there's it's rare that a vehicle that joins a crowded segment just comes in I don't know where and cleans house the the al all the other models in this segment are are playing catch up to the telluride another getting UP into the forty five thousand to fifty five thousand category now we see some of the higher price names at least in here what model three as our top pick in this category I think most people know it's an all electric car we saw between two hundred fifty and three hundred thirty miles of range which is really outstanding preferred compared to any any electric model out there really this is one thing that Tesla does very well proving that their their models are going to go a long way on a full charge of the model three also treats the driver with excellent handling great steering it really feels like a sports car than a sedan what else do we have in in this this top category are you definitely need to check out the Lexus are acts this is Consumer Reports.

"And this is our auto expert on komo news one thousand seven ninety seven seven all right welcome back you're listening to our auto expert let's pick up where we left off just a few moments ago we see one of the reasons people are moving from sedans to SUVs is for that confidence about a drive so we wanted to bring that confidence into the sedan so it's this natural and confident feeling every time you get in the car the car's going to do exactly what you expected to do and where you want what you want to do and it's going to go where you want to go where you expect it to go you have been looking on camera for awhile haven't you I spent on Kerry for awhile but I've been on Avalon quite a bit longer than that so now the Avalon also gets the same treatment let's talk a little bit about that was it really plug and play for the Avalon as well you know Cameri led the development and Avalon was behind by about six months so once we get out camera going Avalon was fell in line pretty quickly and was quite a bit simpler than Cameri just because we can now carry over some of those crash you may if allegations that we did on camera now we don't have to do that on Avalon because we've already proved out the system it doesn't seem to have stopped buyers and no this isn't this is an engineering question but it doesn't seem to stop Baez who live in states which have horrendous when winters where he gets very cold and very snowy they they they seem to be quite happy to buy Cammy without all wheel drive but they were telling you that they wanted a Cameri with all wheel drive yeah where where it definitely hearing from the customers that they do want us all wheel drive system we're expecting about a fifteen to twenty percent take rate and around the country for the all wheel drive system but in our northern areas were expecting a lot higher we're already hearing from dealers that some dealers want to order a lot more than just a fifteen percent they're looking at sixty percent or more of the take rate simply for the all wheel drive system how did you test it where did you go did you go some you know some arctic places to put this on the road and to do some ice testing in the vehicle well we did all of the engineering work in Michigan and northern Michigan is blessed with lots of snow and cold so.

K. all abuzz we're talking of course about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex A. K. A. prince Harry and Meghan Markle who say they want to step back from their duties as Royals they're in negotiations with the queen over what that will look like in the United Kingdom meanwhile there move is also prompting a lot of hand wringing in Canada reported to be where the couple wants to move at least part time joining us now from auto what is Evan dire national reporter with the CBC Canadian Broadcasting Corporation of entire welcome thanks for having me first of all can they just move to Canada if they feel like it what what are the immigration rules on this well actually Canada of the four core Commonwealth nations the U. K. Australia New Zealand and Canada Canada is the only one that doesn't have a constitutional role for any member of the world family other than the queen herself so as far as getting was concerned Harry is just a regular U. K. citizen Megan is a regular US citizen that actually gives her a couple of advantages over him for example she can apply for visas under nafta both of them would if they wanted to really settle in reciting Canada they would have to come through the immigration process however having said that anyone with money can sort of get around this because you can come to Canada on a six month tourist visa and simply leave the country for a day just before that visa runs out hop over to Washington state from Vancouver for example and then come back and reset the clock for another six months so if they did want to come here and actually take out residency it looks like Megan has more options because Canada has a points based immigration system you get points for education which make it has more of she has a university degree of like prince Harry right and she also have work experience in Canada seven years living in Toronto and working in Canada so it she might very well be in a position to sponsor him okay because that is a track record of of living there and paying taxes and that's right connection as a tentative do count for points hi okay now all this said they of course are not just your average took a ical Englishman an American moving here I I read the globe and mail the Canadian newspaper had an editorial this week saying the real family can't live in Canada that they they should be told they can't move here exploit right what what is the reasoning there well you know Canadians are not really overwhelmingly fond of the British monarchy I mean in in polls we've consistently saying that there is a slightly larger number of people who like to do away with it that keep it and and the reason that that hasn't happened is because apathy actually scores even higher than either of those two options so conditions don't want to re open the constitution and and deal with Quebec in all those complicated issue so that's why they haven't made any changes the greens do like the monarchy even those who think it works well believe it works well because it's far away and so it's this distant symbol it's not in your face Canadians are paying the costs for it like the British and this is a key difference even Canadians who like the monarchy don't like paying for it pulls out showing whether people think this is a great idea and good PR or it's thinking what how understood for her we might we get stuck with us well there there was an initial poll that showed us that a small majority of Canadians were welcoming to the idea of them moving here that they like that idea but then there was a follow up pull that raise the question of covering their security costs and a much larger majority of Canadians said no way to that so there are people who certainly like the idea of these two big celebrities coming here but the actual attachment to the monarchy tends to be strongest among Canadians who have connections to Britain who are descended from British people and that is a minority of Canadians is again one of the differences between say Australia and New Zealand and Canada Canada is a much less English British country than either of those two for one thing we have a very large French speaking population that has no attachment to the British monarchy and then there's just Canadians from all over the world you know we have gains from former British colonies like my own family are from Ireland you know they have no attachment to the British crown Canadians from Jamaica from India so it's about seventy percent of the country really has no attachment to Britain and that all these effects how they feel about the British monarchy is Evan dire of the CBC thanks so much my pleasure you're listening to All Things Considered.

"Long when you're finished up with like basic plot stuff I guess I just wanted to know like what what you what you doug like why you think this this has stuck around and why was like an influential work and then also I don't know. Is there anything that you is there. Anything like more GAAS that you would like to mention engine that you just know that we are not going to be able to talk enough about. Yeah I can do that. I can do that okay. The two things that happen next after this big balance now and so something. That is interesting about the book as a overall thing remember when the HBO series. Rome didn't have any money to show the battles and you remember word that that was also the case with like very early season. Game of thrones got the money later became the only thing that maybe it was worse. This book doesn't really show that at all because of who is not an who is and is not on the battlefield but it does then whenever there is a moment of violence. Or a moment of heightened drama the stakes feel very high and personal and not just like Oh is he gonNA kill. Kill the person at the right time. It's like it's way all of the conflict is much more personal and character-driven which I think is what leads people to come out of this book very attached to these characters So they're the big thing that likes becomes becomes one of the questions that needs to be answered by the end of the book Is this how is Arthur going to have a kid. How is he going to have an air her with well exactly when a man and a woman very mend again knowing that only few people know that he already had one How's he going to have one with Guan one of your and a thing? This book does very well throughout and this is just one of the best examples because it has the most Knock on effects is kind of like when when a bell can't be on run so like once you say something or once you ask for something you set in motion a series of events that that like you lose control over this at a certain level in some discussions of the book becomes like what is the will of God odd and like m. i.. Enacting the goddesses plan by what I've done some of it is like how am I being punished for this other thing that I didn't do But but ultimately at a at a human level it is like Oh. I wanted this thing I asked for it. And here's like the monkey paw version of it several chapters down the line. Sure so the the biggest one of these that happens is Gwen of your wants. Baby real bad she. She turns to more gain who at times in the book. She hates at times in the book. She's really nice to they have a really interesting relationship. All of the Relationships in the book are very very multi-layered I really. She has the time she took the time to build to build those The there's a there's a Menasheh Twat Kouassi in the middle of the book where it's clear to Arthur that Lancelot and Gwen aveer have a thing going on. They haven't haven't done anything but it's clear that they like each other a lot Arthur gwen Avia or having a real tough time with the fact that she keeps trying to have kids and keeps miscarrying and and can't So she goes to more gain in his like. Give me something so that I can have sex with Lancelot and like we'll have the kid and Arthur said that's cool. He'll raise as it as his own. That's the thing that Arthur said. Did Arthur say did say that. Oh Wow then. Everyone gets super drunk. And Arthur Arthur just invites the both of them back into his room and is like hey go for it. I'm here to ways he watching. He's in Eh so this has like a couple of things that ripple out through the rest of the book. It doesn't work. She still doesn't have a kid. It starts spreading like wildfire throughout the whole kingdom that Arthur is letting her have sex Lancelot It plays into some stuff that is underexplored. Maybe or maybe it's explored as it needed to be that like Lancelot is by hi or at least really loves Arthur. And there's a lot of rumors about why he has never been with a woman and refuses to marry a book that's coming out in nineteen the late eighty S. I think that that's meant to be read as bisexuality or it's meant to be read as just like he's gay and closeted. I like to read to read by in. It feels too much twenty nineteen to it. That's a fair point and I. I'm using that based on reading about the book it's not I used in the book So it might not be. I think it's it's could just as easily began closeted. I don't I don't Wanna I don't WanNa say what the book because you're the I want to read it but I'm just bringing up that possibility known it is presented as he has never looked upon a woman that way until he saw Gwen aveer and then ladder in the book he kind of admits to her and himself that it was mostly so that he could be near. Arthur got He does get trapped in a marriage with a woman named d'alene and has a bunch of kids because more gain is trying to keep the court like not from falling apart. That's a bad sentence Mom Tom and so he's trying to make the court fall apart. No she's trying to keep the court together and to keep it from falling to remove tension. She creates a whole scheme where Lancelot sleeps with someone else gets caught and then asked to marry her. That sounds totally relaxed. Totally free so the whole back half of the book and then we can get out of the plot at this. Point is really people trying to preserve some sort of status quo at the court. Because there's been this lasting peace in Britain and they're scared of getting rid of it and yet avalon. VILLON is continuing to lose ground to Christianity Kevin Harper the second. Merlin Who becomes a love love interest? He is a beautiful musician. He is disfigured and was like burned as a kid and end like it's he has to overcome that and every interaction with people but then he has the site also and foresees that avalon is going to recede so he basically jump trump's shipped Christianity and is a real crappy Merlin he becomes a major named Kevin via great Marlin. I knew IT I. We knew about Kevin so more Kevin Kevin the wizard imaginative targeted dot. Kevin the Blue Doc. I'm here to save middle or whatever So the back part of the book is like now that people have kind of shifted around and there is a status quo. How do we preserve it? How do I still get what I want without breaking up Britain How do I preserve Avalon and preserve this religion region Without ceding ground or without losing Arthur and oh maybe Arthur's actually not the best king moving forward. What are we going to do when he's gone And the the kind of denouement of the book is his son Gideon. Everyone learning who witty and is questions. Khanna WanNa this like chaos energy that comes in is just like this all sucks and the time of peace and people following the same religion is over. We're all just GONNA fight forever so we might as well be strong. I think he's the one at some point in the book that argues like war is good because because it teaches us new thing. It's like what are you. Yeah he's a real stinker. I'm glad that he gets. He gets at the end of the time. So Oh why do I think. What did I like about this book? Or why do I think it resonated with people. I don't say this pejoratively the the kind of relationship map that I gave you earlier. That gave you a headache. really works as like soap opera. Serialized storytelling where people are constantly like Rian countering each other because it takes place over decades so you like get one relationship between characters and then like someone gets married to someone else and then those people are put in a room one hundred pages later and their lives are different and they interact differently but in a way that still makes sense like that is that to me feels true and makes these characters feel like more than just parts. It's of a myth and in particular the women get that treatment They can be revered. They can be mistrusted they can be worthy of song they can be self centered and deceitful. Like and very few of the women in the book are only one of those things So I think if you're someone who was already enjoying fantasy fiction and was like waiting for a book to have a bunch of characters offers that are not just you know nights and airborne or whatever dudes particularly like if you're looking for not just that This has that and kind of really delves deep into who they are I didn't love how every two hundred pages ages characters argued about. What God is? I understand. That's important to the story But it did feel like an the argument that they were having multiple times over where like someone would be like well. The Christian God is the only one that works and someone from the Avalon on religion would be like. Yeah but like all the gods are the. It's just whatever. The gods are that's fine. We need these people to believe in the Scott over here so that they you you know grow crops and you know we can rule them safely. It's fine That particular argument happens a lot and it is. It doesn't always feel fresh rush. What does feel fresh about? It is something. I don't know that I remember. Game of thrones doing particularly well but like the way that religion can become politicized and They there's another moment similar to whether or not he's GonNa raise the cross where He blesses awesome Saxons who become good guys later by holding up excalibur and he holds it up as a cross and more gain gets very mad because Excalibur is an abalone Ian Sword. It shouldn't be Makin Christ symbols or anything like that and they haven't pretty very interesting discussion about like honestly what if it was just a symbol that I made politically so that they would follow me later And a lot lot of things a lot of discussions happen like that. where it's like is the religion? Are you talking about the belief system or are you talking about the reality that like people need the follow symbols that they believe in or else. There's GonNa fight all the time. Yeah they're they're a couple layers to that one is that the cover of the book is a woman holding had had soared by the blade which is really stupid and only makes sense. If you consider that they're trying to drive home the cross is sure sure And then the second thing is I mean. Christianity has a rich history of appropriating. Yeah totally again. Symbols and a hand holidays in a way to make it easier to simulate other cultures and other religions so yeah I think the seems pretty in character and I assume that the book is doing that intentionally but I guess around. I think it is doing that intentionally. I think it's doing it in a way that allows you to imagine. Imagine the personal motivations for why someone would do that as opposed to it being kind of an abstract concept of like Oh and then this nation moved over here and took over this nation like there's a strong sp because it is based on myth. There's a strong sense of who the movers and shakers are and like some of them are motivated by high ideals in some of them are actually motivated by like. This is who I WanNa Bang and it's been making making me sad for decades. Bang this person so I'm GonNa Cause an international incident and I guess that kind of gets me to you there were there. Weren't I think this my experience is not dissimilar from some of the articles. We've mentioned where folks like going back. Torid it knowing what they know about Bradley. And you're like what do you take away from it. Would you reread it again. I would not mostly because I think I would then be even looking being harder for stuff that makes me think about Bradley There's just an interesting and really in depth understanding of like manipulation and using people That without knowledge of the author you would look angle. Oh that's just like That's interesting stuff like the the MACKINAC avalon makes throughout the book or very personal and involve like making members of your family do things that are unsavory or that. They're gonNA hate you for later but you had good reasons quote unquote And that just it. The book does not present it as good necessarily I don't know that's where the book gets the most complicated for me Yeah I don't know right. Do you have any other questions. No good I did not. I'm surprised that you didn't bring up. Juliana Margulis is in the in two thousand one. Mrs Avalon mini series. That's one thing I think you've overlooked. Sure gas to look look to talk about other than Adaptations that I thought might be interesting for people who are in more of this universal obviously First first one is kid in King. Arthur's court yes. which has five percent on rotten tomatoes and has a Daniel Craig and Kate winslet among other people in it okay And then the other adaptation. That really caught my eye was the 2017 film transformers the last night. Wait which opens with a bit. Where in the year four eighty four King Arthur and.
