Robin Givhan on the US Capitol Siege and Vogues Kamala Harris Cover
"To better understand the gravity of the political moment in washington. Dc and how evoke cover became a flashpoint amidst the us political crisis. I spoke to robin kvant. The pulitzer prize winning writer. Who is the senior critic at large writing about politics race and the arts for the washington post and whose own column on the topic was headlined. Vogue got to familiar too fast. I i asked her about the mood. In washington dc. Right now and how it feels. As an american seeing american democracy under threat i start with just A deep sigh. Because i think that for most people. There's just an element of just. There are no words to really express what we're witnessing and you know it's been for a for a significant part of the country. The last four years have been an exhausting emotional emotionally draining time and You know and then add in a pandemic and than to see this. It's just extraordinarily disheartening. And and shocking. And i would also just say i i think there's also an aspect of Sort of sad inevitability Would have seemed like this was predictable and yet we were incapable of south it. Yeah i agree. Everyone kind of you could see this coming with the rhetoric and that president trump has been Spewing out over the last four years using social media as a kind of bullhorn to broadcast this kind of you know hatred and divisive rhetoric. That's from our perspective. Over here in london and i know people other part in other parts of the world you know. We always look to america as his beacon of democracy and to see you know a country that we admire and look up to so much going through this. It's you know we find it. Refined it heartbreaking and really sad as well but you know that point around inevitability. I couldn't agree with you more Later today you know. it's wednesday were recording this It seems as though president trump will be impeached by the house of representatives. What do you think this will signify in this crisis that america's going through right now this political crisis. I think that's a really good question. I i'm not sure You know. I think we've gotten to a point what in at at which every time there's been a sense of okay this is you know the nature like it has to sort of shift at this point shift where the batter And we've kind of been proven wrong so You know an a president who has been. We'll have been impeached twice as a pretty extraordinary thing. But i think we have really clear evidence from last week that there's a certain percentage of the population who will be undeterred and he will be even more exercise and ultimately a it will it has has starting to cease to be about president trump and he has just bad. A you know the the key. That's unlocked this avalanche of darkness. Really because a lot of the the rhetoric that was being spewed out there at the capitol was related to trump fights. You know there were a list of grievances that people had that really had nothing to do with. He was in the white house I think it's bad you know. They've just sort of been given permission to express their grievances in this really violent way. But i do hope that You know i'm wrong and that The vote will will mean something and will mean something that will shift things for the better. I guess some people's perspective could be that this process that congress is going through over the next few days Will be the end of a very dark chapter in. Us history and we have a new administration Starting on january twentieth that seems poised to kind of address some of the critical issues that have surfaced during the current administration's tenure but others are worried. Maybe like you that. Actually this isn't the end of the chapter. It's just opening up and has highlighted that have seventy four million people voted for donald trump. There's at least a portion of those people represented by the groups that showed up at the capital last week. That have been kind of in a way activated by trump. And you know there's you know ten potentially tens of millions of these people depending on which you know opinion. Polls you believe what do you. What do you think of that. I get is the end of a particular chapter. What the next chapter will look like however I is is the question. And i don't think that You know on on january twenty at twelve a one pm you know the sun is magically going to come out and everything's going to be washed away. I think it's going. We're going to have a lot of really difficult difficult work to do. And i think there's going to be a lot of sort of weeding out of some of these pheno terrible elements in our culture and. I don't think that we can really do that until we sort of. Reckon with our history you know for so much of the the rhetoric that's coming from the people who were you know the mob that writing at the capital so much of it to my mind seems to be kind of rooted in american history Of that deals with race and gender issues And what exactly you know freedom and equality need that have never really that we really never really come to terms with and i don't think that we can really move forward productively until we do come to terms of died and you know a lot of people you know the first thing that They will say when people try to go and examine history on and understand what it means for. The president is bat either. Don't wanna go back there. They don't wanna revisit it. They don't want to have that conversation or they simply want to serve you at through these rose colored lenses and sort of glorify it And ignore the the worst

Boston Red Sox Take A Closer Look At Corey Kluber
"There is more activity coming out of boston as well. They are rumored to be interested in several free agents and buster olney. espn's buster only reported that quote. The red sox have talked a ton of possibilities are preparing for a series of moves before the start of spring training and quote so move. Benintendi isn't the only move. That's on the mind for the red sox There's a couple of other names here. That have been linked right hander. Jayco dharavi starting pitcher. He he's up and down when it comes to his career. He was in minnesota for some time then down to texas but professional arm to come in and give them quality innings veteran relief pitcher. Alex colom formerly of the white sox in his point eight. Era from twenty twenty now. There are some concerns when you dive in a bit. Deeper into sabermetrics there is a dip in velocity and hard hit contact has increased. But you know it is a results oriented. Sport and alex colom was still fantastic for a the white sox this past summer. You have former cy. Young winner corey kluber pitching for teams on wednesday january thirteenth. So you guys may know how that workout went by the time. You're listening to this He's gonna throw about twenty five thirty pitches and it seems to be about two thirds of major league. Baseball teams will be in attendance. So the main goal is to show teams. He's healthy show. Teams that velocity is still there because he's basically missed. The entirety of the last two seasons with multiple injuries forearm torn right Throwing muscle a lot of different things going on with kluber but he could be a perfect. You know bowe bilo free agent option for not only boston but a couple of other different teams out there and the last guy the red sox have been tagged to is actually outfielder yasuko week. You know puig's been in and out of baseball and could find himself as a cheap option out there in the outfield for boston and a lot of people don't like i actually don't mind him. I liked the energy place with. I like the passion that he brings to the yard ultimately he's probably not the performer. He once was but he'll give you a professional at bats. Play hard for you. And i do think that people in boston would certainly like
Who Belongs In God's Family?
"We're talking about the family of god. The bible about. I suppose who are god's children who belongs in in god's family who belongs in god's family quick recap god creates all humanity. Yes if here's image yet and I guess another way you could say that. It's to be his family little rabbit hole in genesis five. That answers that equates being in the image of god is to be the child of god okay. Yep it's the call of all humanity In all of our diversity but it is human nature to become tribal to not trust each other to be violent to each other in. That's genesis one through eleven. Just yep the fracturing of the fracturing of the family unity. God chooses one couple to form a family that will be a chosen family not better than any other families But chosen for a task which is to bring the blessing. Yeah back to all the nations and this is the story of israel. It's a whole story of the hebrew bible and it's easy to forget that in a way it's a subplot. Yes that's right. So the bigger plot which is all of humanity being the image of god. How is that going to happen. Will one family is going to do all sorts of things have seed that's a funny biblical term. Yeah yeah produce. Lineage produce lineage which there will be some ruler king who will deal with evil who will rule with righteousness. There's also going to be a place. Where god's presence is in all the nations can stream up and learn from this the temple. This is jerusalem. We have this hope that that's going to happen. Jesus comes and we see. Jesus saying right off the bat to his fellow israelites. This is our calling. We're supposed to be the city on. The hill was to be the light in the darkness. This is our thing we've gotta. We've gotta do this. And here's the ethic and here's what it looks like. And he goes and he's got this almost laser focus on israel. Yeah on the people of israel and making sure that israel actually can stand up to their calling which is to be the nation that will hang the blessing ultimately. Jesus does four israel. What israel couldn't do which is be the faithful israelite. Yeah and to be that ruler. And the way that he did that is. This is not what this conversation is about. But the way that he did that was with this backwards Just sacrificing himself his allowing his siblings to kill him. Yeah and that was his enthronement actually provoking them to kill the whole other thing but and through his death and resurrection was proven to truly be that that king the messiah who seed coming from israel and so now in i guess in a sense the vocation of israel has been solved because jesus has done it yeah or at least stage one of the solving the problem which was that. Israel's not being obedient yeah and is as fracture as on his fractured. That's right here comes. Jesus saying this is what it looks like and we didn't talk at all about. Yeah he starts the nucleus of a restored family of abraham yeah that relates to god according to the new covenant that ezekiel and jeremiah is a all anticipated a new way of relating to their god and so the gospels are trying to say that the family of abraham has been restored the nucleus of it in the group that jesus started

Amazon reportedly developing radar-equipped sleep apnea tracker
"Radar sleep apnea tracker so this is actually like so solely tight. Go for you here. Google's project solely also uses millimeter wave. They radars well to detect gestures. Pretty close what this is doing again. This i don't think this is creepy. But it is important to understand how this works. It emits the signal and it when it uses that the bounce back to see what you're doing and it's basically what amazon's doing that's worth noting is that it's created an algorithm to watch how you breathe now that's obviously machine learning because you yes. It's not something you could say. Well if it goes that's snoring. It has to kind of you you have to put a bunch of sleepers in front of. There's about not breathing. it's not doing the sound. i think it's it's sense. I understand it is exactly. It's it's looking at some part of either the rise and fall of your chest or the way your head jerks back and see air breath. I wonder think about how a bat uses sonar right or think. How literally how it works. You're throwing you're throwing the rif signal outright in it it runs into something it lets you know. I ran into this. This is what that looks like in the algorithm. They figured out that they they're running against this is there they know what the pattern of sleep apnea. Looks like right for that raider. Obviously with having done a lot of training yes yes this is not something you know you wouldn't necessarily know how to look for sleep apnea before you head into this. This is a big push for amazon into health tech We talked about the halo. Fitness tracker They did kill there. Haven effort the health insurance effort with p. More do they ended up in a buffet. Yeah they did that. Oh we really thought they were going to start get into the health insurance business that's interesting. They did just launched their pharmacy service. Though right if you you can you can send them your prescription. And they'll fulfil it kind of like. They're not lease in jets anymore. Either day actually bought by the jets by the
Eric Wall: Arcane Assets, The Future of Digital Investments
"Young now the ceo cio at an event named arcane acids. So that's obviously get change coming from the from the permission blockchain space. So i know that for regulatory reasons. You can't tell us everything about this fund but can you tell us a bit. Yes sure. And i suppose it sounds like eh a gear change but from my perspective. It was a something that i have been doing from the moment that i got started. In the cryptocurrency industry was like i was standing on a personal level where i was managing my own cryptocurrency portfolio and. I was doing that starting with bitcoin from two thousand twelve and kept doing doing that in two thousand fourteen. Two thousand fifteen and two thousand seventeen when sort of the mainstream got attracted to the cryptocurrency industry. And they start to talk about okay. We want exposure to cryptocurrencies. But i've heard that the bitcoin is not the scalable or that it's consuming as much electricity s the small country shouldn't have some of these other cryptocurrency assets and then i found myself in the position of advising them and trying to correct the misconceptions that they had and if they wanted some old con exposure. You know. I can facilitate bats. But i want to make sure that we subtract nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine percent of everything. That's just pure bullshit out there. And even i think sometimes as it would even be better decision to have short positions on on some of those all coins that is that can be profitable strategy if you want to maximize your bitcoin holding. So i i. I had all these requests and i started actually in two thousand seventeen as a side project while still working at over to launch a fund together with two other financial professionals in sweden so when the nasdaq acquisition and i quit nasdaq then. I sat down. And i wrote a list of all the different opportunities that i could join and participate in the cryptocurrency market and running managing a fund was on that list and then i just eliminated all the different options on that list until i was only left with one or two and then i chose to go down this route because this genuinely if i could imagine one dream job one thing that i can imagine myself waking up and completely being love with what i do then managing cryptocurrency fund is the thing that gets me closest to the things that i'm passionate about and for those who know me and follow me on twitter at one of the main things that i am passionate about debunking coins reading white papers finding flaws so by running a fund. I can put that interest of mine too fulltime. Use so that i can just detect. What are the things that we should avoid. In the crypto currency fund should be avoiding and there was a norwegian company that had recently launched its called arcane. It's about to become a publicly listed company it's it will be the second the The second company in the nordics is this publicly listed cryptocurrency company and they were very happy to embrace my ambitions at the firm and facilitate so that basically all i have to do is decide on portfolio construction and all the other aspects when it comes to building up the partnerships with the custodians changes and the complying with regulation all that would be taken care of by arcane and i will only managed to fund. So that's sort of the ideal relationship between me and the cane company and we started to find in in april and i have been managing it since so far. I'm very very happy with with that job. And what it's been like especially in this type of environment which we have been which has been extremely exciting and interesting but sadly i cannot talk about what the strategy of the fund ace and other metrics about the phone because we'd have to abide by may two regulations and they are extremely extremely harsh when it comes to talking and marketing cryptocurrency retail investor. So i cannot say that much more about that unfortunately.
Georgia's Ossoff-Perdue Senate race is too early to call
"In Georgia, with one winner now projected another race still too close to call very latest this morning In an update from ABC News, the Democrats stand to go two for two and run off elections and Georgia that will determine control of the U. S. Senate. Democrat Raphael Warnock is the ABC News projected winner and one run off. No winner declared in the other with Democrat Jon Ossoff's with a small lead that would allow for recounts. Something clear has happened. The fact that we're even talking about Democrats even in the running, possibly winning is a major shift in this state where, if you had asked me two years ago, I would have told you that right off the bat before even knowing the candidates that neither Democrat had a chance.

How worried should you be about the new Covid-19 variant?
"Dr david fichman is an epidemiologist a professor at the school of public health at the university of toronto. He's our first call when something. Scary appears around covert. Hello david hello. It's it's good to be here. I want to start by repeating version of a question that i asked you. I guess Close to this time a year ago but this time about the new covid variant that has been found in the uk and is now being found in canada and elsewhere and my short question is i. How worried should we be about this. You you know. I i think it's some it's a matter of Being cautious actually planning for the worst hoping for the best we don't really know how widespread the sun new strain is Is going to be it. It probably has already escaped from the uk. We know we've got a few instances of of with it's called the b. one one seven lineage. And we've got a few of those identified here in canada. The data from the uk are concerning. They suggest that it may be a strain of virus. That's better better adapted to transmission in humans that it's got a Communication that allows it to to bind to human cells. Better to something called the ace receptor. And what you see in the uk data is that this strain sword of appeared in september and over running the other other strains that have been circulating in the uk and it's sort of outpacing them which suggests by itself that it may well be fitter better adapted to infect human beings. It's always hard with with with a new variant of a virus viruses mutate all the time. So so there's lots of different strains of this thing. If you have a big outbreak that just happens to be caused by one particular strain of virus if you just look at that in isolation is going to look like that virus is more infectious and more fit in transmits better because it said you know. It becomes over represented as a result of having caused outbreak. So so you. You can be misled by things like that. Say you know you have a superspreader event. The strain that was associated with that superspreader event is going to look more infectious because lots of people suddenly have it. Even if it's exactly the same transmissibility as some as other strains but what you see with this be one one seven variant is. It started it seems in southern southern england and you can see it sort of moving through the country and wherever it goes it sort of catching up with and then surpassing existing strain In those regions sort of leaving them behind to what extent dots driven this third wave of infections that they're now seeing in the uk is still unclear. But that's a plausible mechanism for this that you have a new more fit variant. That is just out competing. The virus and so it's causing a higher fraction of infections. So you know it looks as though this is. This is a fitter fitter virus and that's to be expected over time right because it's it's important to remember this viruses. An animal virus sars to was probably a bat virus. That's moved into a new species moved into human beings and as it passes through millions and millions of people. You know we're up about eighty five million. I counted infections worldwide. So probably getting close to something one and a half or two billion infections worldwide with with all of those passes you know in in some mutation of the virus the better adapted viruses are going to get selected out so something like this is sort of expected over time that it becomes a better fit for our species if that is the case here then you know the obvious questions are it's fetter is it also better at killing people you know. Is it more virulent. And in general the direction of something like that would actually be the opposite. You would Expect that part of becoming a more successful virus doesn't just involve me better infecting people but also involves you being less likely to make people severely ill so that they can be isolated you know prevent onward infection and less likely to kill people because if you kill someone they can't do any infecting adaptation is probably over time going to go in the direction of making the pathogen less fearless. We just don't have enough data yet to know whether or not that's the case it doesn't it doesn't right now look as though this is either better or worse than the the prior strain buyers in terms of killing people then the other very important question right now is is the virus. Mutated enough that vaccines were starting to get into people's arms might not be effective.
TSLA is The Chosen One Says Morgan Stanley, Price Target to $810
"Everybody rob power here and today. We're talking about a new note on tesla's stock from morgan stanley. They have increased their price targets significantly. Today after hours. We also have some news on the full. Self-driving beta report on monowai gross margins from china and some news that riven may be raising some more capital taking a look at the stock tussle. Today finished up zero point seven percent to seven hundred and thirty five dollars eleven cents that actually did trail the nasdaq which was up about one percent. But hereafter hours worth. Things have started to get more interesting. After morgan stanley released their updated tussle note. Tesla has jumped by about ten to fifteen dollars. One and a half two percent to read around seven hundred fifty dollars per share otherwise news on tesla was fairly light today. So we're gonna spend most of our time here looking at that note. And as i always say when we look at analyst notes a lot of this is just contextual and it gives us good jumping off points for discussion and things like this also gives us good perspective and insight into the kind of information. That's being circulated around the street. So right off the bat here. This morgan stanley note comes with a great headline. They title the no quote the chosen. One tesla industrializes internet of cars target two eight hundred and ten dollars and quote. That is a huge fifty percent increase over the previous price. Target of five hundred and forty dollars per share. They write quote. We update our forecasts and long-term assumptions. Following better-than-expected cue for deliveries sixty one percent year over year growth and five billion dollar capris raising twenty thirty volume to five point. Zero million units versus three point eight million and taking the price target two hundred ten dollars. Tesla is richly valued for a reason reiterate overweight and quote. Okay so what has changed. Here with morgan stanley's assumptions that has led to this fifty percent price targeted increase while they say they had better than expected volume this year. You four specifically. There's been a significant capillaries. And of course tesla was added to the s. and p. five hundred. So they beat morgan stanley's projection. They have risked and they've been added the s. and p. five hundred which has reduced the float effectively reducing the supply of tesla shares as for the actual changes to their model driving this higher price target. They say that quote the majority of the price target increase comes from the impact of our higher volume assumptions in our model and quote as i said they have increased their twenty thirty delivery forecast from three point. Eight million vehicles to five point two million vehicles and they say that they have now added to factories to their forecast for twenty thirty bringing their total tesla. Plant count to ten. I think that factory count is actually probably pretty close but that would only be you know. Five hundred eighty thousand vehicles per factory by twenty thirty. But it's become very clear. That tesla actually has ambitions of producing two million vehicles or so per factory per year. At least in the case of texas and dig your berlin shanghai. They've said one million plus so even just those factories plus fremont if can hit their production targets in those factories. Gets you to more than five. Point two million that jonas projecting here for twenty thirty as for their earlier year forecasts for twenty twenty one they have increased their projection from seven hundred seventy eight thousand previously now to seven hundred ninety two thousand and as a reminder just as recently as july they had actually been projecting just six hundred and twenty thousand four twenty twenty one so they've actually up that by about thirty percent in just the last six months for twenty twenty two the forecasting one point one five million. I'm not sure what that was previously for. Twenty twenty three. Then they are up from one point. Three five million previously now to one point seven million the fun thing about these increased volume targets from morgan stanley. Is that a few months ago. They did what they called. A great tesla rating. They started including things like mobility services as a recurring revenue from autonomy in their price target. So they're sort of having this ongoing opera moment this year. That as they now add vehicle volume into their forecast they now have to add additional services and revenue margin as well and that is where the game changes in terms of valuation for tusla. And the thing is you. Don't even need a fully autonomous robot taxi type of service to start adding that services revenue in when tesla's starts offering full self driving as a subscription. I think that is going to open a lot. Of analyst is to how tesla's business model is structured and will be increasingly structured going forward leveraging software. It's already easy to say. As i've said in the past that if you want to compare valuations show me another automaker that is selling a ten thousand dollar software option then we can make those comparisons but because that is all sort of right now lumped into the same revenue the same margin line on tussles earnings. People just aren't willing to recognize that yet as a separate line of business when tesla's starts offering full self driving a subscription even if they don't break that out on their earnings that forces a change in how analysts are forecasting and modeling tesla they have to start forecasting recurring high-margin revenue right. Now that's basically all just being pulled forward into that simple ten thousand dollar option which is great but it also makes it easier to ignore the other factor making it easier to ignore right now. Is that a big portion of that is still currently deferred revenue. So it's not actually showing up in earnings. But as tessa delivers more features this year less of that is going to be deferred tussles valuation in and of itself is playing a role here too because it has become so massive analysts have to cover this. They have to cover well. They're getting more and more resources to cover it. They're getting more and more questions as tesla's been added to the s. and p. five hundred those benchmarked funds managers. They need to know what to do with the stock so the coverage is just getting more and more intense and again because the evaluation hide they're going to be a lot of analysts running numbers sort of back testing against that valuation. Saying okay to justify this. This is what needs to happen for the company.

He'll compete in the pool in the tokyo olympics. Swimming for jamaica. This is his story. Identify myself as gay You know. I kind of went through long process of identify myself. And how i kind of wanted to label myself. Yeah i'm one hundred percent. Gay one hundred percent fab i want i so remember. Questioning yourself thinking oh. I'm not quite siamese everyone else in my class. Oh yeah. I think i obviously growing up in maine and growing up in sport. I've spent half my time wearing trump's around post sides. And i think from a young age probably about batting voting. I knew i was different. And i knew that. I did have phelan's tools guys but that very early age because of being around poolside. All the time. I didn't want to be seen different. I didn't want to be that anomaly. In because obviously there's not really many will if any gays or out smit's instrument at the minute. That still sermon spoke saints a bit of last frontier in terms of coming out. Doesn't it really not one hundred percent. Because you've got to be macho man you've got to compete against so you don't want to be seen as weak sesame. I really suppressed so many feelings for so long. Just because i didn't want to talk about it. I didn't want to address. It just wanted my whole acres to be on in so let's establish where you were air. This was whereabouts. We growing up ken. Yeah grew up in just outside of london and in the club while i change echinacea in club which is really nice club quite successful incident and there was lots of people that i could look up to in which was great. But yeah none as you be tade no was straight very heterosexual mindset. I must there any bullying use of homophobic language. Anything schooled at school it away but yeah it wasn't really to do with my sexuality all near the kind of scam game. I think it was just because i was very different very bubbly person or very outgoing person than i think just by very different it all kinds shapes and phones kids always pick up on the other somehow i one hundred percent but the billion did stock never changed over it quiet and reserved thing after the berlin. But you know definitely got my mojo back and just on now. Only who i am which is amazing. so guess. You grew up in a really strict environment in the sense that you've got be so disciplined to be a swimmer at your level. Having you say you didn't probably have time for leads. Parties or smoking behind. The bike sheds or stuff that most teenagers do one hundred percent. I think swimming is dedicated to nine times a week. You know anything kaos just kind of gets pushed aside so i think because everything was pushed away knowing everybody got time to explore mistakes reality or find out why men you know any failures had never explode them. It will really suppressed the down his knee. So did you suppress it enough. That you went through the motions have girlfriends or did he just sort of block out that part of your life into site. It's may end. The poll not sets. Yeah i never had girlfriends never really spoke about that part of my life. I think you know. When you're in samantha. Me one hundred percent commit to me and that was kind of my release like everything but i had a woman because they didn't have time for anything else which you know in reality. I think i did. But i just didn't want to talk about time. I guess your parents were be quite pleased with and it's like they didn't have any normal teenage problems today with life teen pregnancy. Say smoking drinking drugs. All of that sort of stuff you wouldn't have been getting up to the disco back in the day that it was just so some in which many people find it hard to understand because anyone that doesn't do doesn't do a sport i think. Well why are you still in osco. Why some in the early in the morning is something. That was ingrained in me a very long time and i love swimming. I love sport during things. That people can't say that. I call do love preview wrong gear. So what was the time where you you did start embracing because obviously you're living a life as an out and proud gay man now. When was the moment where he thought. I'm not hiding this anymore. Yeah i think. I was as able nine when it came to. My parents just wanted to tell them. I wanted to tell somebody else and once i told them there was a few questions. Also known my dad's jamaica mum's from great percent. So i think my dad had an questions among did come but you know they accept today and it was just a massive relief of my shoulders and join the london. Performance program went on daily trading. And we got really good friends. And actually you know Hearing his possession on everything obviously his coming out story. Just kind of inspired me really made to mile antics.
"bat" Discussed on The Overwhelmed Brain
"Welcome back. I value you as a listener in fact that's very high on my list of values when i do this show if i didn't value you then i probably wouldn't be on what year seven right now doing this show. What's interesting is they. When i first started the show there was only my investment of time energy and money so for the first. I think two or three years that i did the show all of my time energy and money went into it and i really had to assess after the first six months why i do the show because after six months of putting your blood sweat and tears into something and realizing that your bank account is dwindling back then my bank account is dwindling. Because there was no money it'll be completely transparent with you. There was no money coming in. And it was all my investment into what you are hearing today and so i built the foundation. I spent all my savings continuing to build this. Because i truly valued healing i valued healing and i valued other people around me healing and the reason is because i went through healing. And if you're like me as soon as you go through any type of healing god you want to share with other people. Just want to tell people. This is what i did because there are so many people that might be going through. Exactly what you went through. And i know a lot of people that went through what i went through so when i created the show it was to share what i knew because i valued healing i valued other people healing and also valued feeling good for like the first time ever feeling really good deep down inside. I mean at the deepest level. Where i wasn't carrying around any old emotional triggers for the first time after all this healing that i went through all my training my education and my studies. I went through a lot to get to the point where i was when i was starting the show. I just wanted to share it. Because if i feel i want others to feel this good too so i started creating values regarding the show and you know the listeners like you are listening i value you and this is why i keep doing it. This is why. I keep coming back not trying to paint a picture in your head that i'm saint that's not at all and i'm not I mean i. I think i'm a nice guy. I just realized back then because i was putting so much time and energy and money into what you here today that i had to make sure i was going in the right direction. And when i started getting email responses and people were commenting and complementing and saying thank you if felt so good. It felt like my words. Were getting out there. It felt like it was helping people. They were telling me that is helping them. So i got this solid feedback that really pushed me forward and kept me going and continues to do that today. I continue to be fed like that today. In a way that tells me that i'm still going in the right direction. And it is meeting my value of healing. If you are healing if you are growing. I mean used to hear me. Say this all the time learn. He'll grow and evolve that has been my philosophy since day. Twelve ovals day one but it was later on. I realized this is what i wanna do. These are my values. I want people to learn. i want them to. He'll want them to grow and then evolved from the emotional space the psychological space that. They're in because they want to go further. If you want to improve yourself in any way. I believe you're on the right place at least this one of the many resources out there. I believe that when you listen to something like this and you are learning growing healing and evolving. You're going in the right direction. So that sort of has become a mantra in my mind and the philosophy of this show is always going in that direction that i'm always going to be successful and as this show goes i'm seven years. That's a success. Seven years of a show is a success. So i look at that as a success and of course my other show eleven abuse same concept my other shows about emotional abuse and helping people understand and work with emotionally abusive behavior from others or in themselves and i still have that same philosophy. I want them to learn and heal and grow evolve out of the emotional abuse cycle always some cycle dysfunctional cycles. On this end there's emotionally abuse cycles on that end and the crossover to the other territory. All the time emotional abuse and dysfunction on both sides but coming back. Before i go down too much of a tangent. I told you about my show and being seven years. Because when you're in alignment with your values. There's no reason. Something can't continue. There's no reason something won't be successful. There are things that happened. There are challenges and obstacles that come up and sometimes there's just bad luck and you just have to deal with it and move on but typically. I found that when you are in alignment with your values you are on the right path. So with that sad. Let's read this email. See where we can go with it. This person wrote my friend recommended. Your podcast. I am in the middle of another break-up this has been a wake up call. I've been in a relationship since i was sixteen years old. I was engaged by nineteen married by twenty divorce by twenty eight. And i was in another relationship before the ink dried. I stayed in that dysfunction on and off for a year and during off times i was in another relationship and then i broke up with him and i stayed single for another few months and i was miserable and lonely and then i met my second husband jumped head first and we were moved in a few months later than i became pregnant and then we were married all within a year we were together for over a decade and again before the ink dried got into the most dysfunctional relationship in my life. I'm narcissist cheated on me and controlled me. Bat lasted a few years. I kicked him out. And then i was single for two months and then i met another guy in that was not good and i broke up with him and then i'm single for another two months and then i met another guy and then we fell madly in love. We were planning our future only after a few months and then things got real and he ran. So here i am. I see my pattern. I lose myself one thousand percent in relationships. How do i stay. Me in connected. And how do i work on this crap. So the next time i get into a relationship i don't jump in and take time to be myself. The guys may all be different but they all have the same aspects. But it's me that changes in gives all of myself and more. I have two kids and their non-negotiables in my life but watching their mom in a string of unhappiness is horrible. It's probably from my child. And i'm sure i was watching my mother stay with my alcoholic mentally abusive father and she made excuses and kept quiet and stayed with him now that he's passed away. She is lonely and miserable. I don't want this to be my life so there is a story. Thank you so much for sharing that. I am sorry that you have to deal with this. And i'm so glad that you reached out because we're going to talk about you. We're gonna talk about what's going on here so you may have already figured out where i might go with you. But i'm going to comment on a couple of things that you said. I one thing that you said is you change in. Give all of yourself and more. I need to understand what that means to. You mean that when you get into a relationship you become a chameleon you the people pleaser are you. The one that accommodates are you the one that you just changed to accommodate them to keep the peace because of that's the case that is going to lead the unhappiness. It might make them happy for a time but it also leads to their unhappiness to and if you don't know what i mean i want you to listen to the episodes. I've done on people pleasing. Go to the overwhelmed. Brain dot com. Look up pleasing people pleasing in the search bar and you'll find quite a few resources on that but.

"Pancreatic cancer. Which doesn't usually happen. I did see a quote over the weekend where he was Telling people the cantors gonna kill me. But the chemo treatments will boy. I can I can relate to that. And i can't imagine he got cancer that you're not likely you're gonna emerge from you at some point. Think why am i doing this sure. This is miserable. yup am yes Who was about to say. Have you heard a single bad thing. Said about al extra back and i have not but we did have that weird incident in san francisco from years ago. Yeah well only one person said anything bad about him at the time. And that was you sir ended up with locked out of his hotel room and claiming your salins messed. I didn't say claiming. I said saying indicating that he'd been robbed by a passer by a woman who was lurking in. The hotel had somehow gotten into their rome He was i think with his wife And he did Chased her down the hallway or some naked. 'cause had taken his underwear. We have that clip. mike. I don't think they take it. He was sleeping in the nude. I put on my underwear. And then he chased her down the hall in his underwear. That's right you son of a bitch and certain wildly irresponsible radio personality suggested that perhaps the woman had been hired for company. Yeah i found that story bit far fetched but without. That doesn't make any difference that doesn't mean anything Couple of different things newark magazine has got a piece taken on the new york times which it says in the trump. Here's the new york. Times became less dispassionate and more crusading sparking a raw debate over the par papers future the civil war going on inside the newsroom in the new york times. I haven't read this yet to long piece. But i'm going to read it all. Bring you the details tomorrow. I would love to see that part. Get corrected. Do you have any hope for that. That the media starts trying to be what they used to be probably not they actually ran the people that cared about that sort of thing of the business i was gonna say it depends entirely if any of the old schoolers are left of them. Have no and i actually read part of the article myself and the things the woke folks were saying. Make it clear that there's no basis to have a conversation with them. Okay you are you. I am saying. Look this is a problem. And they're saying no it's great does the does the younger wing lose some of their energy for lack of a better term because they no longer have the the boogeyman animating all their animosity. Absolutely yeah i would. I would have guarantee that's going to happen. But if there's nobody that works there that remembers or cares about the old kind of journalism and you just feel like it's an advocacy newspaper. Then i guess the new york times permanently something else and other things will emerge that we pay attention to i suppose well and things evolve and if you know the best restaurant in your town start serving crappy. Food and people are just bummed about it. Well if they keep that up for long right. Nobody's going to be bombed about it. Because nobody's going right in the new york times won't be the new york times. It'll just be some website that operates out of new york. It'll be a red at blog.

Nearly half the states in the country set records for cases last week. Okay case is your testing more than us too. So whatever but Hospitalizations are way way way way up doubled in most places across the country from recent peak. So that's ugly. And dead bodies are pretty easy to count officials el paso texas have resorted to using mobile morgues as hospitals hit one hundred percent capacity over the weekend. The county judge there is going to extend the city's locked down order set to expire wednesday amid the surge. It doesn't look good. He said the hospitals are still not manageable. We're having an inability to manage fatalities at leaves me no choice but to lean toward an extension of the lockdown order They set up their third and fourth mobile morgue. Units a total of ten will be needed to handle the backlog of deceased kobe patients. Wow last week they had a backlog of eighty five dez and since then there's been another ninety three in no place to put them as many as twenty per day the next two or three weeks. They expect wow. That's just shocking. It is about a thousand a day around america right now and they're expecting it to rise to about twelve hundred even if everybody you know minds. Ps and qs for a sustained amount of time but craziness while the rolling average is still going up. The rolling fourteen day average is up. Fourteen percent cases are up. Sixty percent currently And ain't good. No not which is why. It's good news at pfizer announced their vaccine coming out. That is ninety percent effective.

"Lots of people are a little weirded out by bats. But I have a neighbor who loves them and I wanted to know why yes wonder what are we looking at here? A multiple bat structures. When I moved in here I had bats in the attic of my house and I could never figure out how they were getting from the attic into the main house which they did regularly, this is my neighbor Tricia auto. She lives over the hill from me on one hundred acres of forested land. She called to introduce herself recently, and one of the first things she talked about was her bats. Years ago she had bats in Heraldic. So she built a few bat houses on her property to give the bats somewhere to roost besides her home. But it quickly grew into something of an obsession for her but I must have forty bat houses of one kind or another. Wow. So that's quite a quite a lot I'm used to seeing gardens full of birdhouses, but not bat houses. Some of Trish is plastic tubes, different sizes, and even different colors. Others would and lie flat against her Barn Wall with little narrow gaps for bats to cruel up into. TRICIA has become somewhat of about expert. I learned that the more structures I had available to bats the more likely I was to have a nursery colony. I'm also with Tricia to look for bats and I'm really hoping we'll get lucky. We walked down to a creek on her property. It surrounded by a wetland tool green reads. There are a couple of wood duck sitting on the water. We got all the makings for Great Bat habitat here, and now now we just need him bats. That's. Do you have about detector with you I have my bat detector with you with me. Detector is a pretty amazing gadget bat vocalisations the sounds they make well echo locating or communicating. So high infrequency humans can't hear them. So about detector as the pitch of the sound to make it audible. Tristesse trustee unit is from the eighties. It's like a hand sized box like something of an early Star Trek episode. Okay. Turn on my bat detector. We get some static, but no band noises. Tricia tells me we might need the Sun to go down a bit more as a sweet spot at twilight that bats love right before true darkness bats can see perfectly well, they're not blind and. When there's late like this, they don't need locate they can see. What they're hunting. So about maybe out and I may nothing on my detector until it gets a little darker. The back can actually be out here hunting but not yet echo locating. Well I didn't know that. So they do it by site times. As waiting for it to get a bit darker Tricia tells me about the bat colony she's built here. One of the key things is having a place where the bats can care for their newborns and nurse them. All bets get pregnant at the same time in the spring and the only have one pup per year. These bats have chosen one bat box as the birthing box in Tristesse Bon, and now she has about fifty west and long eared bats that use it and give birth there every year. And underneath that box, I have a sheet of plywood. And on the day that they all have their babies and they all have their babies simultaneously because their reproduction time like that. There's a little as their amniotic sac breaks. There's a little. Drop of water. Several drops of water a little splat on the board beneath. So you can't actually count how many babies were born that day by counting those little splashes of water on the board. It's understandable why TRICIA has this particularly deep interest in the reproductive physiology and behavior of She's a retired obstetrician gynecologist, sell the way bats have it all timed to all have their young on the same day or within a day or two in the colony? Always. You know made me think of delivering babies. You wouldn't want to deliver all those babies on the same day, but they do, and apparently they They even have some evidence that the bats will help each other having their young..

"With the stories. One early morning before they all went to sleep, his grandfather suddenly said. You No this reminds me of when my friends PIP vesper and Lucy. Bat discovered the bridge in down. There were hardly any bats there then, and it felt like we had discovered some kind of treasure. Indiana listened to his grandfather described the bridge, and how it sounded and smelled different back then and what it was like with so few bats. We were pioneers strangers in a new land building a life in a single crevice. He said in his deep grumbly voice. Indiana loved the story. And the next morning he asked for another and his grandfather obliged. And then some time later, when Indiana was trying to get his older sister to chase him, his mother had an idea. When I was a pop, I took circus lessons from GRANDPA's friend Miss Lucy Bat. She was a wonderful teacher in even though it's been many years I can remember some of the lessons. Would you like to learn them? The three pups loved this idea as they had memories of the bat circus that came to the bridge, and how old Miss Lucy introduced him. From that point on their mother gathered them in the early evening just after they woke up showing them. A bat circus exercises like twists and turns. They started slowly, but it wasn't long before they all got good at certain moves. Indiana loved it. He and his older sister were able to do. Some circus moves together flying very fast. He liked when his family would all gasp. ooh And And then some time later, his father suggested. I can recall when I was young, my brother Uncle Chick, and I would sometimes wake up early before the other bats and my mother would give us a list of things to find. They were little hunts, scavenger hunts. And since there aren't many bats around, we don't have to worry about getting near Bat, families. And then he gave Indiana and his sisters a list of things he wanted them to find like a bird's nest, a children's ball, a plum tree and a wagon. And, then they stayed in the general area of the Bat box, and try to find everything on the list, using their noses and their sonar. It was a lot of fun. They did it almost every night, and though Indiana was good at the game, he learned that his younger sister was incredible. He had no idea how good she was at finding things and he enjoyed learning that about her. He had always found his younger sister to be kind of annoying, but now he enjoyed seeing how talented she was. Living in tiny camp, wooden bat box seemed to slow things down for Indiana and his family. As Fun. As life had been under the bridge, it was also very busy in the pace was quite fast in. There wasn't the same kind of room and time to explore that. The tiny camp offered..

"That's a pretty school. Cool squeak isn't it and I think Eve who's calling in from all Vermont might have a question about what sounds bats make high eve high. So do you have a bat? Squeak question Yes sisters that squeaked question. Who's your sister elise? What's Your Bat? Squeak question why did they make that noise? Okay and then. Did you have another question? Like why did they evolve with waves? Like is there danger that bad to get away from so good questions from both of you bury? Let's tackle the bat squeak. Why is it? They make that noise the noise that they make they actually make a number of different kinds of sounds the one that we were just listening to is the sound of them echo locating to find food. So those little squeaks. That we hear as little squeaks are actually thousands of individual little noises. That are made so fast that to us it. Sounds like a squeak. And that is their echo-location sound that goes out. Bounces off of everything and comes back to their ears and they can tell what it bounced off but the other kind of noise that they make is noise that we actually can hear. It's noise of them talking to each other. Bats have a very complex language structure and they actually talked to each other. They say things like hey get away from my food. I was going to catch that bug so two different kinds of sounds one. We can't hear that's their colocation. And the other we can hear so they have two different things that to us. Sound like squeaks. Zoe in New Mexico wants to know. How sharp are bats teeth? That's teeth are tiny and very pointy and they are very sharp They have two different kinds of teeth. Just like we do they have mowers in the back and they have sharp little incisors in the front that they use when they are catching bugs the mole molars they used to grind up their food and those sharp little teeth in front. They use to catch books. All right let's go back to Eve's question as well about wings but let's also bring in. Taus WHO's calling in from Oakland California? Taus you have a question about wings right all right. What is your question about wings? Listen go ahead go right ahead. Taus good that timeline. More have wings right so very you got even towels who are both wondering about this wing question again. So bats have been around for about thirty million years and thirty million years ago in order for them to avoid predators. This is what we are thinking in order for them to avoid predators which are running around on the ground trying to eat the bats over time the skin between their fingers grew into wing membranes and allowed them to take flight so when they were able to take flight then they figured out. Hey I can catch the bugs that are flying around. And they fly around the batch chason user echo-location to catch him and that's why they have wings so very. We have some questions that are topical for you as well. That people may be thinking about right now because of other things they've been hearing in the news so let's get to Oscar. Who's calling in with one of those questions from Bethlehem Pennsylvania? Hi Oscar high. So so. What's your question? How and why did that? Cause the Khurana Virus Good Question Oscar and Colin who's nine from Atlanta. Georgia has the same question for you bury and I don't know the answer but we keep hearing that the the covert nineteen corona virus may have originated in bats. That is a question that is being studied a lot right now. One of the theories is that a bat which has a very strong immune system in is not affected by things like corona virus or E. coli or SARS. Those viruses don't affect the bats and one theory is that they had this virus in them and the virus got onto some other little mantle in China and that little mammal passed it to other mammals. Who passed it to humans. So it wasn't that the bat coughed on a human and that that's not how it a transmission woodwork. That is correct. The Bat did not pass it directly to humans it went from the bat to something else and from the something else to the humans just by way of transmission. What's and but that? That is being studied very hard to try and make that determination. Where did it actually come from? Yeah it's a good question and you know for those who are listening if you're interested in bats that's one of the areas something like that. You could study if you study bats. You could study how they use echo location. There's still a lot to learn about bats in the world right. Bury there is if you think back ten years ago. We didn't even know how many bat species there were. We thought there were only four or five hundred different kinds of bats in then researchers started really studying bats and they realized. Wow there are a lot more different kinds of bats than we ever thought there could be. There are more different kinds of bats and there are horses. Cows cats and dogs combined. I could talk with you all day berry but we are going to tackle beavers as well in this show. So I'm GonNa let you go and say goodbye with our. Thanks for teaching us about bats.

"For Vermont Public Radio. Means I get to go out with scientists who are studying why a few years ago I went out with some researchers who are trying to figure out why one colony little brown bats in Cornwall Vermont. Were doing really well despite this sickness so I got to see the bats get trapped and studied. I want to play you a little bit of sound from that trip. Because you're going to get to hear what a bat sounds like. And what Wildlife Biologist Eliza Bennett thinks these bats might be thinking about when they get captured just like I got three parts of them. Okay girls got him. He's log on right now. You picture game. Fish must feel like some kind of alien experience to them describe their alien experiences as these bright lights and then all of these invasive body examinations opening and and of course. That's exactly what we're finding. Bright Lights is there. Were just out foraging tonight and then this very strange bizarre scary thing happens and then we take all sorts of measurements on them and then we let them go and you know I think they must say to their friends. This crazy thing happened. I was just flying around in the bright lights and I was abducted and all their friends are like right. Bats are thinking about that. Maybe they've been abducted by aliens when they get captured by researchers. Luckily the researchers are only there to try to help the bats and make sure that they all survive and one of the ways to help bats is to learn more about them and care about them and find out how you can make sure the bats in your area are staying safe and healthy. So let's talk about bats now with Berry Gins Linger very is a bat advocate. And he and his wife. Maureen founded the Vermont Bat Center where they help educate people about bats and also they rescue bats. The last time I talked to bury he had some bats hibernating in special hibernation area in his house that he and Maureen have set up very. It's nice to talk with you again. Thank you so what were you doing today? Because we're talking to you here. Live on the radio at one but I understand. You've actually been driving around the state already to deliver a bat to travel downstate to somewhere else. That's right I left early this morning and drove down to Middlebury Carry hand picked up the bat for me and drove it from there. All the way down to Dorset There were actually three bets in this group and all three have now been successfully released back into the wild. Why did you have them to begin with? I had them because they came out of their hibernation cave way too soon right in the middle of winter when it was snowy and freezing cold and there were no bugs to eat so the biologists that were checking their hibernation area found them and brought them up from Dorset all the way up to us at the bat center in Milton. And so you keep these bats safe for the rest of the winter as long as they should be hibernating that's corrected and this particular group stayed together through the winter. We kept them healthy and fat feeding them. Delicious meal worms and When it got to be Spring and the bucks started coming out we said okay. It's now time to turn them loose back where they came from so to turn them loose back where they came from. They had to go all the way back down to dorset so very before we get to our callers and emails and we have a lot. So we're going to get through as many questions as we can. Let's establish some information so that we know a little bit about bats as we have this conversation. What are bats they fly? But they're not birds they fly and they are not birds. They are the only flying mammals they're mammals just like dogs and cats and humans. We are all mammals and bats are in that group of mammals but they can fly and I can't no. I wish I could too. But but being a mammal means they have for or hair they they have their babies drink milk. They give birth to live baby so all true about bats. All that is true about bets. No additives no eggs. They don't lay eggs If you can think of a bat doing all the same things that we humans to Except they can fly. That is so cool. I'm and how many different kinds of bats are there in the world. Well in the whole world there are about one thousand four hundred different kinds of bats but up here in Vermont. We only have nine keys only nine. Can you name them all? We have little Brown Bat. The Big Brown bat the northern long eared small footed the tri-colored the hoary bat the Red Bat and the silver haired Bat and Indiana Bat. Then the that's way forgotten. Yeah but see. That was the only one I could remember. So we've got nine the two of us there we go. Let's go to one of our calls. Here's Max who's calling in from Elmore Vermont. High go right ahead. What's your question for? Berry last back. I'm that bride good question very wide. Some suck blood. That is a very good question. That's actually don't suck blood on find an animal. That has an injury. Now keep in mind. There are no blood sucking or blood. Drinking bats anywhere except a little area in South America so all the bats that we have up here in Vermont. Don't drink blood. But when they do they look for an animal. That is injured. That might have a little bit of blood on it or they might sneak up on us a chicken that sleeping in a tree and make a tiny little nip in their foot so that a little drop of blood comes out and then they lick it up but they don't actually suck the blood. Well that's good to know and coroner from Boston also wanted to know that question but we have other questions about what bats eat. So you've just said Berry that some bats Do Drink Blood Benjamin in Massachusetts wants to know. Do all bats eat fruit? All bats do not eat fruit in fact there are about two hundred and fifty different fru of oars fruit eating bats but there are over seven hundred insect eating bats so there are way more bats that eat insects than there. Are those that eat fruit? Are there any meat eating bats? There are meeting bets? We call them carnivores and they eat things like mice and frogs and lizards things that they are able to catch the obviously. They couldn't catch a big huge thing. Like a Moose. 'cause they're way too big but they can catch small animals and lizards in little frogs. So those are the carnivores and there are others that drink the nectar from flowers. Well that's important. Isn't it very because we often think of honeybees? I when we think about pollinators. Maybe some people picture hummingbirds bees all bats also very important as pollinators. They are very important Here in the United States we do have some pollinating bats and if you think of Pictures that you've seen of out West in the desert and you see these great beautiful cactus growing out in the desert. Those are growing there. Because the bats pollinate those cactus flowers to make new CACTUS and they've been doing that for millions of years. Kids are listening to but why broadcast for curious kids. And we're talking with Barry Gunslinger. Bury the back guy about bats in this first half hour of the show. And then we're GONNA talk about beavers but if you have a bat question you can send it to questions at but why kids dot Org. Evs calling in from Maplewood New Jersey. Hi How are you today high? Do you have a question for? Berry one go for it. Why can't back in the dark? Why can't they can like how good I'm glad you said it that way. Okay so even wants to know. Why can bats see in the dark and very we have questions about this from other kids to like Teddy in Maryland? Who says how do bats see at night very good questions both of you? Wow so when you go out in the dark all of your seeing is done with your eyes when bats go out in the dark. They see with their ears by doing. What's called ECHO location? They make a noise that goes out from their mouths and bounces off everything around them and they hear that echo coming back and they can tell the difference between the echo coming back from a house or a tree or a car and the echo coming back from a tiny little bug and they usually don't try and eat cars or trees but they do try and eat bugs so when they're flying around at night they use their echoing to find where their food is. Well let's play the question on that that we have as well because I wanNA make sure we get this in. Here's an echo location question.

There's no better time to relive the series that brought us together in the first place. And we're doing it with him podcast. That's right people we're going to bring friends and crew members and fellow cast members and writers. And guess what we're going to even invite some of you to call into the podcast and ask all the questions you want the entire secret heart staff join us for fake doctors. Real friends on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts. And wherever you get your podcasts while that that commercial break came out of nowhere I didn't even get a warning. Normally you say something like we'll be right back. That happened just had that that button just went. Also reloaded them remastered. It was nice and clear and crisp. You heard that in two thousand got oh. His another dilemma had last night. I don't have the same problem you know you and I are football fans but I I like football. Maybe a little bit more than you. But we both like football and You know the NFL draft was last night So Green hoping in a brody got drafted somewhere so you could buy his Jersey for cheap. Yeah you know what There's never been a brody in major league sports that spells it the way. I do with a Y so I've never been hit in his throat. He's plenty of Brady. My buddy my buddy will. His last name is Herbert and a guy by the name Herbert. Yeah he got drafted by this. So He's GonNa buy a Jersey with the word Herbert on it because obviously when you get a personalized Jersey right. 'cause a lot more money but when you buy the mass produced like that my neighbor wealth plus plus as a giants fan. Hallo Daniel Jones is the quarterback right. You'RE GONNA Jones Jersey. I'm assuming of course. Yes he's taken over. Yeah he took over this year's is he better prove himself. Yeah he's got a lot to prove you can get the Jersey though anyway. So here's my dilemma. I wanted a tweet about the draft but I also wanted to make sure that people knew I was watching the concert so I felt like I can't I can't be like hey. The draft is going on. Because I'm trying to tweet out to watch the concert so I was. I was watching the concert and the draft with the sound off And so by the way the jets did very well but my favorite my favorite moment of the draft. If you're an eagles fan you'll appreciate this so carson. Wentz is the quarterback of the Eagles two times in the last three years. He's got injured where he's missed the end of the season in fact two years ago he missed the last few games and the postseason and his nick foles had a takeover right so Carson Wentz. I think you don't have to tweet me. I believe he missed the end of eighteen. The beginning of nineteen and the end of nineteen so he's been injured a lot at least in the last couple of years so they drafted a quarterback this year probably too high for a backup because he's talented. The guy's name is jalen hurts. H. U. R. T. S. The guy they drafted to protect the guy always gets hurt is named her. Name'S HURTS I. That was my favorite And then you before the draft the the the jets have a new general manager named Joe Smith I think Joe People Screaming It's show hold on anyway so they were asking him before the game about one of the players on the team. I don't have the audio but I thought it was. I thought it was hilarious. They asked him if the if he joe Douglas. They asked him if he had spoken to. Jamal Adams Jamal. Adams is one of the guys on the team who they. There's been talk about their. Maybe trading in the draft may be right so they always on sports show and they said. Have you spoken to Jamal? Adams and the response was no. I have not spoken to him since the last time we talked. That makes no sense right now. He wasn't talking about talking to the guy on the radio he was. I know he was talking about Jamal Adams and he said I have not spoken to him. Since the last time we spoke right lessons last we spoke. Yeah well of course. He was assuming that that person knew that the last time they spoke was. But it's not the case with everybody was scary. Here's the last time you spoke to your mother. I haven't spoken to my since last time. I spoke right but but then I would be assuming that you knew the last time that is but it doesn't matter right. You like what was? Let's talk talk tour. Oh it was the West door right. Thank you very much. Thank you Joe. Douglas appreciate that So I don't. I don't know how to process this. I'm GonNa Chalk this up as to as to coincidence not not irony okay. Did you happen to see what the twenty twenty United States quarter looks like the tails side of the quarter you. It's on their brody No they changed the back of the quarter all the time. Yes the twenty. Twenty quarter is not a joke folks combat my God King Bat. Oh my God. I'm looking at it right now. It's for national parks. It is a it is a Samoan Fruit Bat. I cannot believe they did not like I. I know it takes a lot to stop the mint and halt the presses. Like all lot but somewhere in the last couple of months even though this was probably slated from last October November long before there was co Vid did they. Didn't someone say let's stop does not notice. Nobody could have halted this one an unfortunate result to have the twenty twenty quarter commemorated on its tales by a bat and it's too bad there upside down and they're disgusting looking to. Oh it's it's an honor of the Samoan Fruit Bat. I don't WanNa fucking even look at that. People are GonNA think that quarters are bad luck. You Watch this year. There's going to be an aversion to people carrying quarters with them okay so as currency. It's got a bat on and does this happen. So these quarters were released in December which is cove in one thousand nine hundred roughly can recall them or they could like stop printing the stop them in. Let's let's continue the rest of this year. Okay these are replace it any other species of things that they find the parks go. They have to keep it in his bat called on. It's five twenty twenty quarters at recognized National Parks located in American Samoa Connecticut. Us Virgin Islands Vermont and Kansas either way. They're national parks all over. So I I imagine a GonNa do all the pox when they're all done And so it looks like Salt River Bay is Virgin Islands and Vermont is something billings. Can't read the first words covered in this particular picture. Billings Rockefeller a tall grass prairie in Kansas and a National Park for art in Connecticut to Guy Painting a House and American. Samoa is to bats..

"I'm guessing that this was an early sign of friendship. Sort of like their way of building. Trust EXAC Doritos but they also noticed that the larger groups who were putting together took a little longer to bond especially if some of the bats already knew some of the other backs Sort of like when you've got a bunch of people at a lunch table and some of them already have friends and others don't yes in fact the researchers also observed or noticed that the strangers were more likely to bond when their other back friends weren't around interesting so sort of like how it's sometimes easier to make new friends in a group where no one knows each other yet in overtime. The researchers started to notice some pairs of bats grooming each other more and more becoming more and more friendly with each other and then they discovered that some of the bats would actually start to share blood. You know as food if they knew that one of their new bat friends was hungering and just to be clear. These were not bats in the same family. Note these were complete strangers. Who eventually built up trust and trust to bar blood into another bats open mouth so let me get this straight. I think groomed each other which honestly a huge deal because grooming doesn't require anyone giving anything up but giving blood you know as food. Well that's a whole other level of giving but it gives him still trying to figure out why I mean. I understand friendship but I'm still not willing to let Thomas fingerling take off my pants. Who served I wanted your parents. You did remember that. Geyer is what if you knew that there would be a chance that someday you.

"So that the researchers could all watch 'em on TV Marley and they did this for more than a year so they just through all of these back strangers together into one cramped micro house. I mean Ha Hive will. There was some thought behind how they introduced the Bat to this makeshift. Okay I they put into bats. You didn't know each other at all so similar to how a teacher on the first day of school might pair you up with another student. You haven't yet met exactly. And then the researchers dropped one stranger bat in with three other vets who had lived together before so similar to an exchange student from another country coming to live with a family in a new country. And then these two groups together and fight on them for the next fifteen months who spied on them spying on them for science using cameras. The researchers recorded the vampire bats behavior to see how they socially bonded or made friends with each other over time. And what did they find? Okay so I. They noticed that the bad who put in by themselves as pairs seemed to be the first to bond or to form relationships. Just like you and me G FORCE. You'll bet it finger story and mindy. How could these researchers actually know that? These bats were bonding well. They noticed that over time the bat started grooming each other looking each other's further to give each other baths then..

"Their family members to phone and MARFA mouth when she was a bank me. Oh that's true. I didn't grow teeth until I was four. Well when you think about it I guess it's not all that out of the ordinary. I mean. There are actually a lot of animals that do this like bees. They regurgitate nectar for the other bees in the family. High and penguins regurgitate food into the mouths of their baby chicks. Reggie says that his mom used to bar food into his mouth when he was just a little squabble. Oh that now but what Dr Carter and his team discovered was that these bats will not only barf up blood into the mouths of their family members but and this is kind of the butt of the whole study. These researchers found that vampire bats will sometimes share their hard earned blood BARF with bats who are not part of their family stranger and the post office want and shave in Naven. Thank me these days are so rude. So let me get this straight. We know that vampire bats will share their blood meals with other bats in their family So what would make them share their blood meals outside of the family especially if it meant less for themselves. Well that's what Dr Carter and his team wanted to find out. Oh yeah so. What did they do? Well they decided to set up an experiment. Oh My love a good experiment so I the researchers set up their own version of a tree hollow in.
"bat" Discussed on The Dictionary
"Hello words welcome to another episode of the dictionary. I am going to start. With some words I word is bat. Bat second form of transitive verb. No see it's just a regular verb missed. Vb there So this is a verb from the thirteenth century we are going to start with the transitive definitions number one to strike or hit with or as if with a bat to a to advance a base runner by batting to be to have a batting average of number three to discuss at length colon. Consider in detail now we have the transitive definitions one eight to strike or hit a ball with a bat. One beep to take one. Turn at bat to to wander aimlessly now. We had the third form of Bat. It is a noun from fifteen eighty. This looks more interesting. Any of a widely distributed order of nocturnal usually fruit givers or insectivores flying mammals that have wings formed from four elongated digits of the four limb covered by a cutaneous membrane and that have adequate visual capabilities but often rely on echo location a wonderfully specific definition of the Animal Bat So let's see the the order. The Scientific Order is corrupt. Era C. H. I. R. O. P. T. E. R. A chiropractor Let's see fru give us. I think means that they eat fruit and insect everest means that they eat insects So an I I always when I learned this. I thought this that this was amazing. Their wings are not like the wings of a bird. Their wings are their arms and fingers. I mean I guess. Technically the wings of a bird are their arms but they don't have fingers they just have they have a wings Bats the the first part Is kind of like a little arm I think but then the rest of it is literally their fingers that spread out with this membrane in the middle Which is just very cool So what else was I gonNA say Then the ETYMOLOGY is probably an alternative of the Middle English Bach. Ba k. k. e. which is of Scandinavian origin. It is akin to the old this old Swedish. I think I really need to make a permanent marker of where this pages Old Swedish The deputy deputy old Swedish not Baca which means bat now. This is interesting because not baca. Looks like it's one word but the Baka is in B. A. K. K. A. is in Italics and the not an A. T. T. is not in Italics Is Old Swedish? Not is that a different Abbreviation no I don't think so So I don't know what that is. We are going to move on to the fourth form of Bat. This is a transitive verb from circa seventeen. Eighty seven to wink especially in surprise or emotion as in never batted an eye. Also the synonym flutter as in batted his eyelashes Interesting example I appreciate that They put a male Batting his eyelashes but stereotypically. It's often a female who bats their eyelashes. But like I said Yeah let's mix it up. It doesn't have to be a female who bats their eyelashes This is probably an alternative of the second form of the Word Bait B. A. T. E. Which is coming up in this episode So don't go anywhere now. We have be all caps. This is an abbreviation for Bachelor of Arts in teaching. Now we have batboy one word. Noun from eighteen ninety seven a boy employed to look after the equipment as bats of a baseball team and There's probably some bat girls there I would assume Are we even going to see? Yep Yep we'll see a bad girl later Now we have the word batch B. A. T. C. H. It is the I form. Noun from the fifteenth century. One the quantity baked at one time. Synonym is baking to a the quantity of material prepared or required for one operation specifically a mixture of raw materials ready for fusion into glass to be the quantity produced at one operation to see a group of jobs as programs that are submitted for processing on a computer. And whose results are obtained at a later time as in batch processing. I've played around with this a little bit like in Photoshop or illustrator. There's other programs that do it too. That's those are the only ones that I've used it in. Where if you WANNA do sort of the same action on a bunch images like when I was doing wrote a scope animation? I had a bunch of images and I needed to do the same thing like create later. Save it out as this file Blah Blah Blah and there's hundreds of images so you just tell a program do these things Blah Blah Blah. It's super easy. Just runs the batch and then at the end of that To See definition it just says compare to the synonym time sharing number three a quantity as of persons or things considered as a group This is from Middle English Bach or Botch B. A. C. H. E. which is akin to the old English by Kahn. Which means to bake now. We have the second form of batch. It is a transitive verb from eighteen. Sixty three to bring together or process as a batch and bachelor is a noun third form of batch. It is a variation of Word Bach or Botch B. A. C. H. and Well I mean I know Bach as in the composer but I really don't remember would-be. Ach is so. If you WANNA go learn that again go back now. We have the first form of Bait B. e. It is a verb from the Fourteenth Century. Transitive definitions our first one to reduce the force or intensity of. Synonym is restrain as in with bated breath number two to take away. Synonym is deduct. Number Three is archaic to lower. Especially in amount or estimation number. Four is also archaic. We have the synonym blunt. Now we have just the one entrance give. Definition it is obsolete and we just have to synonyms diminish and decrease. Oh I just remembered I took a lift home. I think it was Just a few days ago And he was He was a guy who came from. I think it was either Venezuela or Brazil. Sorry I feel terrible that I don't remember which country he was from. But he's been in America fear for a few years and He's on a work visa and he's been taking esl classes. And I said I this might sound weird but I have a podcast where I talk about the dictionary. I read the dictionary and I've always thought that this might be useful for people who are learning English as a second language So I I mentioned it to him. He looked it up I don't know if he's listening. But Hey if you're listening. I think his name was noises If you're listening I hope you're you are enjoying this. And if you're listening to this Close to when the time this episode airs. I urge you to go all the way back to the first episode and Listened from there And you know if there's any other people out there who are listening to this podcast as Sort of an. Esl lesson A I am not a credited class. You can't get credit for this But I hope that it's enjoyable and I hope that it's teaching you something Or if you know anybody who might get some use out of this You know tell them about it. I just it just popped in my head so I had to tell you are right. We have the second form of Bates. It is an intrinsic verb from the fourteenth century so in Italics it says of a Falcon or Hawk and the definition is to attempt to fly off something as a gauntlet in fear to attempt to fly off something in fear and then as a gauntlet. So it could be flying off a gauntlet which I guess is the thing that that goes on the hand again. I think I mentioned this before. I always thought the gauntlet was something else. But I think that's right so weird Are This is middle English from Middle French Batra which means to beat and that is from Latin but wear A. I don't know what it means. Though maybe to beat now we have bat eared Fox. It is two words but the bat eared is hyphenated This is a noun from nineteen thirty. A large eared yellowish gray. Fox that inhabits arid unforced in areas of eastern and Southern Africa. And the scientific name for this large eared yellowish gray. Fox Is Otosan. Mega Lotus Ot O. C. Y. O. N. Second Word Mega L. O. T. I S. now. We have the word is it by Tokyo. Thinks Bateaux B a t e u There could also be a double T. And there could also be an ex at the end So there's four different ways. Oh I guess with an ex That would be the plural form of Bateau So this is a noun from seventeen eleven any of various small craft especially a flat bottomed boat with raked bow and Stern and flaring sides. This is Canadian French from French from old French bartell from old English bought which means boat. And there's more at the word boat. Now we have Bait Bait C. N. Yeah I thought it was eighteen. Because that's how it's spelled but it is betsy and capital B. A. T. S. A. N. It's like Wells named after a Guy Bates. So that's why that's why it sounds betsy and It is an adjective from eighteen. Ninety five characterized by or being mimicry involving resemblance of an innocuous species to another that is protected from predators by repellent qualities as unpalatability as in a betsy in. Mimic. I'm still a little bit confused. I guess characterized by Resemblance not as bad as predators. So it's basically like a camouflage right. Is that what I'm understanding? I duNNo. My brain is broken. So this is from Henry Walter Bates who died in eighteen ninety two And he was an English naturalist So this was coined three years. After he died it looks like now we have bat fish. All one word Noun from eighteen o eight any of several fishes with winglike processes especially any of a family of flattened pick Hewlett bony fishes. The family name is odd. Gok follow die of the order. Lo Fi fourmies. Oh my God I know some of you are smacking your thing So the first word is oh. Gee C. O. C. E. P. H. A. L. I. D. Oh Kok Phil die and the order is L. O. P. H. I F. R. M. E. S. That's partly why got confused because the double I know fee for me is so. That's about fish now. We have bat foul. It is a An inch transitive. Verb from the fifteenth century to catch birds at night by by a blinding them with a light and knocking them down with a stick or netting them that process is called Bat. Foul play it is spelled. B. A. T. F. O. W. L. so foul is like the bird Or birds are foul To catch birds at night by blinding them interesting I guess people do that with bats to they they I don't know if they blind them but they try and catch them with a stick or a net or something when they're in their house So would that be called Foul Bat? Probably not last word for this episode is Bat Girl. Two words Noun from nineteen thirty seven a girl or woman employed to look after the equipment as bats of a baseball team So it's the same definition as Batboy but batboy is one words and bat girl is two words and a bat boy is just a boy not a boy or a man and bad girl is a girl or a woman So yeah that's kind of sexist. You'RE GONNA call a woman girl You could at least call her a bat woman Are there ever bat men who you would call a batboy right? You probably wouldn't do that. So why okay So I think I am going to. Pick Bait. Cnn as the word of the episode Because it sounds similar to camouflage maybe later when I'm listening back to this understand it better There was some good ones in here though. I I'll have to see if I can post pictures of the the various nouns like baton bat eared Fox in Bat fish and all that Okay Oh today I think is the You could call it. The march was at the March Equinox. we did just have daylight savings time. I think I talked about that Yeah March Equinox. It's also called the Vernal Equinox Where the amount of light is The the amount of day and night are equivalent which means that our days are getting longer here in the northern hemisphere in the southern hemisphere. Your days are getting shorter. I think that's all I got to say. I thought I had something else but that is it. Maybe I'll remember later. Probably not thank you very much for listening. This has been spencer dispensing information into your brains. Thank you and goodbye..

"They realize how insanely well. It'll sell if they price at five hundred five. Fifty s doable. I think for most people. I think five hundred would be an abso steel for the series X. I don't know if it would be financially viable for them. Yeah I don't know how much it cost the consuls and how much obviously they're gonNA spend it marketing and all that jazz and they still have not released what the lineup is going to be for launch so the powers all there and the system looks really good but the Games are still the biggest question in with the PS five. You know for a fact you're going to have you know they haven't confirmed anything for launch because the PS five launched isn't even confirmed either but given the fact that Xbox has released saying that they're going to be launching this series x holiday season of this year. You can pretty much assume that that's when the PS five is gonNA launch and. They haven't announced any games but based on the Plethora of First Party exclusives they have they can really stock the lineup launch. Line up to my knowledge based on what I know about the Games. It's a really entirely possible for them to have just a really stacked lineup at launch whereas xbox doesn't really have that they don't have that massive Catalogue First Party exclusives that are super well known in super popular. And you know just great games all around so the issue with the xbox is not can't deliver on the power it's going to be games If they release knowing that they don't have a ton of games slated for release right off the Bat. I think five hundred is the way they should go. I don't think they should charge six hundred dollars or six fifty for a console. You might have to potentially wait three to four months.
