He points out that his administration concealed data about kroger's cases in nursing homes reportedly for fear of federal prosecution stories of his vitriolic abuse and threats directed at other democratic. new york. Politicians are coming out yet even all that is only the start of deadly corrupting competence. So in keeping with judging by his by his results cuomo should resign immediately and free new york state from his dismal.

Guest Teacher Benjamin Schneider on How to build and scale a digital marketing agency only with remote workers
"A marketing agency is one of the best ways to build wealth. Why because a lot of people don't understand it's easy to scale of course it's hard to scale if you're doing the work but the point here is that you don't do all the work you hire other people. Great talent designers developers hardworking people that you can get them to do certain tasks work on the projects that you get hired to do an reap the benefits now. Ben's going to break down. Show you who to look for the mistakes people make but i'll be back at the end of the episode to tie things up and share my takeaways but for now take it away. Ben guys welcome is bench neither. I'm an entrepreneur from germany. And i own several businesses and one of the business i do is having an online marketing agency. So that's what we're going to talk about today. My topic is how to build and scale a digital marketing agency. Only with the remote workers. I've been working with remote workers for around eight years and i'm the owner of chop mafia dot com remote work platform. So you can go in hire remote work beer and that came from my digital marketing agency because our online marketing guy. So i have my own ecommerce store and out of that ecommerce store people were asking me. Hey ben how are you doing this. Can you help me with that. And all that kind of stuff and out of this. I created or found my digital marketing agency so our facebook ads did more than two million dollars for clients in zales with facebook ads but the problem was by selling companies. These facebook ads. They do not only need the facebook ads. they also do need landing pages. They need google ads. they need. We deals for youtube. They need graphics for youtube or graphics for ats graphics for the website. All that kind of stuff. So i was realizing. Hey if you're selling facebook ads. It's a good business. But companies need more. They need a full service solution and they want to have a full service solution because they do not want to have usa facebook guy and another one for google ads and another one to grade sales funnels. They want to have one agency one person to talk about their marketing stuff and outsourced that so by realizing that was thinking about. Hey how can. I build an agency like that. Because i'm only a one man show in the half other businesses to manage. And i'm quite good at facebook ads but i have no idea about google ads or some other stuff like billing websites or developing some stuff stuff like that so i need people for this. Hiring people from my country from germany is quite expensive so if you would hire a designer for example that custody around three thousand dollars a month so basically. It's an euros but yeah three thousand dollars a month. That's quite the same so this was too expensive for me okay. That was just not possible. So i needed to have another solution and then i came on the idea. The possibility to hire people from the overseas from the philippines pakistan india countries. Like that. why. Because these people were a lot of more cheaper than the german guys. So i was starting with that was trying that and some positive experiences some negative experiences but in general it was good in general it was working so i need to find myself a way to find people who are fitting into my company and were having a very high quality and this was the key to build and scale might digital marketing agency. Because as i mentioned i wouldn't have been able to hire three four five german guys. That would be just too expensive. But i was able to hire some people from the overseas so i started with hiring a designer and i would recommend you guys this. Start with hiring a designer. Why because definitely there's no company in two thousand and twenty one who do not need a designer in their company because you have so much posibilities to spread content out there and that's why you definitely need to have a designer but the other advantages that designer does not need to have any log in credentials or access to any sensitive data or something like this you can just give them a few pictures and title or anything like that and tell him hey. Police creamier facebook ads. Spanner out of that. And in addition to that you see the result immediately with a developer. If you're another developer guy you have no idea if this wella per is good if this is fast or anything like that but the with a designer you see it easily you see easily on. The result of this design is good or not that he take around one day for this or one hour as fast or not so. It's very very easy to start with with a designer as a remote worker indefinitely you need to have one in your company. I just proudly recommend that so our starting also they designer and this man helps me to improve my facebook ads because we have awesome designs. But before i did all designs and all the banners and all that stuff by myself. And i'm definitely guys not a designed so you can imagine how tremendously the quality was improving by that guy so realizing hey this was working with the design guy. I get one step ahead. I hired someone for google ads. I hired someone for wordpress websites and stuff like that. So i was not only able to provide high quality to my clients with that remote working guys. Some accompany hours able to widen my portfolio. So i wasn't the for the branding out there. I was still the facebook. At sky in the facebook ads marketing like a guru and sold my book an amazon bestseller and stuff like that but then the back end i was able to sell them not only facebook ads but google ads and landing paycheck and a new website and email marketing. And all that stuff as well. Because i have a team right now and this is very easy scalable because if you're found a way and we come to data and a few seconds if you have found a way how to hire good people and not being scammed by people and really knowing that this people half good and high quality output you could easily repeat that hiring process and scale your business with that. As i mentioned. I've created more than ten million dollars ten million years in sales for my clients. This was only possible with having team. So how did you do that. You got on dot com on my platform if you would like to check this out. Fourteen days for free and create a shop post. We have only. Id verified user skies this very very important also. Go hiring on another platform. Feel free to do that but definitely do only hire people who are ide- very fight

Science FAIL! Why it's good to do
"We've all made mistakes right. But sometimes i can make us fundamentally confront who we are and who we want to bay beck in twenty four eighteen neuroscientist. Dr been to has had a damn good reason to be excited. It was it was such a shalit's basically there was years of work at prestigious scientific journal current biology had just accepted a paper by humidity supervisors based on his phd project but not without rigorous peer review. I of course reviews as good and tough questions and lots of extra analyses. I did when finally the email arrived and said yes. The paper is accepted. it was just. It was a very happy moment. A piper in a high impact journal. That's a big deal for. Young scientist then investigates how we perceive the world visually. So as your brain stitches together sane in front of you what you see is rematch spatially. Onto a part of your cortex at wrinkly atalaya of brian. So if you think of the cortex is old crumbled up that if you would flatten it out like a sheet could see on this flat surface neighboring points on the critical surf representing neighboring points in the visual field in the scene in front of us then put people in an mariah scanner to see what happened to the map when he distracted them using different visual cues. He came up with a k. For design for study and think we scan a total of twenty seven people which was at the time by far the largest study using this type of method and the method was kind of knew. He said there was a lot to figure out. It was computational so there were some analyses that literally took weeks every weekend machine would run through that stuff when it crashed it would send me an email which is a dangerous thing to do because when you get an e mail on sunday saying oh your coaches crashed in your very tempted to go back to the office and start to fix it. That lots of careful data crunching and analysis lighter and he'd found something significant and surprising this aspect of the brain of the visual brain which part of the scene a given neuronal population of marin response to seem to be more malleable than we thought and it was surprising that it seemed to change with attention. Just through your attending a given power to seen more than an condition. There's a lot to this week but the shorter the long of it is. This was a robust finding worthy of journal. So fast four now to six years later it's june twenty twenty and bins running his lab and tame remotely in the middle of a pandemic lockdown in germany. He's home is three. Kids is a lot going on right and he gets an email. I received that email. And i have to say at i. If i'm honest i i. Wasn't that worried that something was wrong. Really wrong only been didn't understand what yet and he would have to make a career defining choice about what to do next today on science fiction. Something we can all relate to filing and why it's good to do especially in science but also wants wrapped up in a whole lot of stigma and shame again especially in science you know great successes are trumpeted and things. That are not successes. You don't want people to know about however failure is so normal to the day to day working of science we need to move towards a culture where we are actively embracing failure. We all know that air is human and assigned as you know we have to ask why and behalf to ask how and way we fe often leads to the next question we are asking and so does this theory much part of scientific process. It's very great suits of inspiration in many ways the into no signs. That's not the way it looks and sounds in science when a journal pulls or retracts a paper the stuff of nightmares for scientists. But he's angst about scientific integrity scandals scaring scientists away from talking more openly about making mistakes back to that email bend has received at the uselessly.

Already Vaccinated? Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Stop Wearing Your Face Mask Yet
"Now, at this point, some 1.5 million New Yorkers have received their first dose of the Corona virus vaccine, about a half a million have gotten both anyone who is now fully vaccinated, though, is being advised not to put away their face masks just yet. As correspondent Ben Thomas reports, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises. If you've had both doses of the vaccine, at least for now, you should still follow the same rules as everybody else. That's in part because so few people have been vaccinated at this point. And while the shots strongly protect against severe illness and death from covert 19, experts say it's not yet clear how well they blocked the spread of the virus. Whether people who have been vaccinated but get a mild or symptom free infection can pass it on. They advise. Especially Don't let your guard down after receiving the first dose.
Writing About Illness Without Platitudes
"Silica. Juha joins us now from rural new jersey. Her first book is called between two kingdoms. A memoir of a life interrupted salako. Thanks for being here. Thanks so much for having me camera. So this book came out originally. I believe from a blog that you did for the new york times. Called life interrupted key. Start with how that blogger came about and what it was about through. I received a diagnosis of leukemia. Was twenty two and in those early weeks of being in the hospital and going q. I had all kinds of grand ambitions about whatever's going to do with the strange time on bedrest. I had packed a suitcase. Full of books including were and peace was on my bedside table but you know as the treatment can and and the side effects started to set an i had so little energy i never read a single one of those books and a kind of despair began to sink in as i realized that my life had bifurcated the resist before a diagnosis. This after and i really struggled to figure out what i could possibly do from the confines of a hospital room and so i returned to something. I've always leaned on in difficult times. Just keeping a journal. And i wrote every day. I had made this commitment to myself. An didn't matter how good the quality of the writing was or how long it was sometimes over a couple of sentences. Sometimes just a word occasional rain the f. word but i think i was trying to make sense of the circumstances i'd found myself an and over the course of keeping that journal turned a kind of reporters notebook. I'd had aspirations of becoming a foreign correspondent the for my diagnosis and blah. I couldn't travel or interview. Anyone really leave my hospital room bubble. I began to report from the frontlines of my hospital bed on a very different kind of conflict zone and that journal and became the source material for the life. Intrepid calm and i was interested not just in kind of excavating the experience of us but thinking through the way in which age impacts how we experienced major relation tractions for you at the time. Of course it was the before diagnosis. And the after diagnosis. Obviously from this vantage you've been healthy for about six years. It feels more like a between period. Thus perhaps the title of your book between two kingdoms. This idea of interruption was hopeful one. I had this belief that i needed to endure the treatments than once i was well i get to return to my life into the person that i'd been that that didn't happen. I very quickly realized. After nearly four years and treatment that i couldn't return to the person. I'd ben bc before cancer and that in fact the hard work of killing did not end with the cure. It was really where healing began. And i found myself in this strange of in between place. The title of my memoir between two kingdoms is a reference to the berlin susan song tag. Who wrote about how we all have dual citizenship and the kingdom of the sick and then Bell but even though i wasn't sick on paper anymore i felt as far as i possibly could her from being the healthy happy twenty seven year old woman that i had hoped to end the other side of this. And so you know. The book is an examination of this year's of and the impact that it had not just on me but on my family my entire community but really it's about aftermaths and why we do when our life is ended and we have to learn how to love again. Describe a little bit what you mean by the difference between moving on and moving forward so when i finished treatment i has a solution that i needed to move on from illness and i very quickly realized that moving on is the kind of meth and as much as i tried to do. Just it wasn't possible. And so i really needed to learn how to move forward with my illness and its imprint on my life on my body on my mind and to carry thought wreckage with me as i try to find my way forward.

There was supposed to be a stunt double who got shot and falls and like it is falling on the concrete and crawling and blah. 'cause that's technically stunt. The stunt double shows up to set and he's wearing a different suit than i am and i think technically like you know they didn't know how they would. Maybe they would have to delay day or something like that That's huge amounts of money and inconvenience like you ruin the suits work. There was like a custom sued so it wasn't like they could just like men's warehouse. I was like i can do. This can fall and you know. Do the stunt. I was a child gymnast. Like i know how to do that stuff. Okay yeah i can feel. I just tested this day. I can still do it. Yeah okay then we just try doing. I'm running away from joaquin. And he's firing a gun at me. And i'm like they decided on the day of the like maybe you've already been shot in the like but once and what does that look like. I haven't liked prepped. Running with a bullet in my. But let's try try it and then after after walking comes in like empties the gun into the back of me and runs up the stairs and jed quiet. They'll be they'd yell cut. And then i'd get up and then me and todd and joaquin would go watch playback and be like we'll how did that look that look right. I don't think that's how you'd run if you had a bullet and you're like no i do. That's exactly how it is. And i and i was just felt like i was learning so lightning vast ultimately at the end of it. I felt like it really paid off. And like after i wrapped walking pulled me aside and said some really nice things to me. That was very encouraging awesome. He said hey man. I like the way you like it. I would like to offer you ten thousand dollars to shoot you for real sometime. All right we have a couple of great games for you. Are you ready.

Hey ben can shoot a quick quick video for this or two minutes of this three minutes of that now all that stuff gets saved for later on the day 'cause that's easy to do even when you're cognitively fatigue you can respond and you can react but my time is my time from about nine so your Tan up until about one thirty or two nothing distracts me that's all deep worked on and do you take any kinds of supplements or brain enhancement tools at this point so I have my cup of coffee in the morning and in many cases that will have like some for significant mushroom extract in it like some some

that kind of shine light on me while I'm working I've a walking treadmill you know a standing treadmill desk a little Allen's board I haven't kettle bell so I'm Kinda constantly moving at the office I mean technically even if I don't get a chance to work out during the day I'm taking like fifteen thousand subsidize just talking to people and moving around and doing things in my office and one thing I didn't mention by the way was when when I say in a smoothie for breakfast my smoothies are pretty damn excrete extravagant we're talking like bone broth Collagen a coconut milk meal of Stevia Sea Salts and blended all up like an ice cream texture second year with a spoon almost like an assignable and then I'll talk with like spiraling in Kerala and cacao nibs and coconut flakes and all these past epoch looking pretty good stuff in there and really the you know most of most of everything else I eat it's very almost like I'm discovers Paleo but it's almost like a bastardized version of the car of diet like so I eat a lot of a lot of organic wild meat I hunt so I have freezer full of meat that I've hunted and I also will order good organic meats one of my favorite companies hunt I hunt whitetail deer elk Turkey access deer tag and what are you what are you kill with and avoid oh you're not even using your now though I like the challenge of of spot in stock with a bow that seems amazing actually that got to be fairly old school and that's got to require a lot of technique I would think like I practice everyday practice shooting day when I'm at home with a bow and I travel with this little handheld device allows kind of practice on traveling without my if someone wanted to get into words would you call it archer is that grab it I wanted to get into archery how how about doing that My method was to visit my local beauchamp and sue visit with them to get fit by them to have a bowl built then I began to shoot in some archery competitions and also some hunting competitions called trained to hunt I went out hunting some people who kind of mentor me and guided me through my first hunts I subscribed to Peterson's bow hunting magazine there's a few good bow

I'm very grateful for the heritage of Anglo American law and very grateful for Magna Carta. I have a lot of fondness for Great Britain. I I love British history. I will say that a constitution that that is focused in on checks and balances and has the idea of guaranteed rights lying at center is is is a very very good idea and has preserved a lot more liberty particularly in the area of the First Amendment in the Second Amendment then has Great Britain like I have a lot of respect of the parliamentary system but it just is not preserved moved central liberties the same way that the United States has and people should go watch your Sunday special with Daniel Hannan. Also you see me talk to another brick Piers Morgan those good times that was really that was fun. I there's a guy like I actually listened to it on spotify. Yeah you can listen on spotify which I love because I can do the cars mazing and then I went back and watched it because I wanted you see the body language. I like. I mean the weird thing. I mean you know this because we're friends yeah. The weird thing is I actually kind of Nice to people in kind of like them but I just destroyed my brand. Only that setting is turned on though like it has to be turned on the issue bobby and hanging out with any well listen. I've been hanging out with my family and anyone else yeah. There's no chance I'm GONNA hang out with anyone else like I'm best friends with the with my business partner this business we have never in ten years been out to dinner by ourselves elves when we were not on a business trip and spouses were not apple like it's never happened ever like I don't get invited to dinners all the time not interested in I mean you and I have been friends and for a very very long time. When have we ever seen each other outside of work absence our spouses? Oh never it's never happened ever so yeah. It's not a thing even functions and you don't come to cross house barbecues. No that's right I mean it's like baby showers and birthday party yeah exactly and if and if it is something where become it's always like years exactly aright. Hello Ben Big Fan. What if anything can we do to bring Adam Schiff to just as we round up a posse and then we go down to CNN headquarters we find a pup tent can't Adam Schiff is in there because it's all day long just sits in the Pompton round him? Bring Him Dejesus that this all got. I mean not your impersonation of the people were I'm from. No that's just checking. I don't know not your turn their cowboys from places that are not in Oklahoma Yeah but the best ones are vocal homa. I don't some would I'd say the best ones are from Dallas Anyway. How can we get Congress back on track women? This is the question they've done nothing but waste our money answer answer. Stop giving the money there you have it really that that is the solution. The answer is that Congress should not have so much power. They should not be able to legislate on US much. The states should be the central repositories of walking and local governments should be the central repositories of lawmaking. Yes Congress will continue to waste your money because wherever there is money to waste people will do it. I mean there has never yet been an institution with lots of money where people don't waste lots of money like that's just the way that it is because also because in government there's no profit incentive to gain of a big company and it doesn't waste lots of money because if it did it would be bankrupt the the government never goes bankrupt. The Nice thing is that if they raise lots of money they know where that came from and it is from you so they can just keep taking your money all right how okay favourite era to study in American History Story Oh man so when I was younger when I was when I was a kid it was revolutionary war history. I loved I loved it yeah super into it as folk score fans no I used to dress up as John Atoms for Halloween every single year on him and seeing all the songs from seventeen seventy six of course all of them and all the words and so revolutionary war history of big into and then when I was in middle school I was big into civil war history so and that lasted probably through I mean I still find civil war and pre-civil history absolutely riveting not just because of the inherent the drama of a country is gonNA fight itself but also because of the moral the moral ambiguity of a lot of the stance that were being being taken like Stephen Douglas stance on slavery anti-slavery but also he wants to keep the country together. The evolution of the country in that period is so is fascinating. you know the dark side side of the American experiment is absolutely worth studying so all of that is riveting when I was in college I was big into the progressive era so I steady Woodrow Wilson a lot and tr now I was into I was doing a lot of world war two era stuff but it really depends I mean I I read history and Sassoli Salei so I'm their areas of history that are sort of under covered like everything basically from the civil war to nineteen hundred is wildly under covered and there's a really I just recommend on the show. There's a great biography of grant. That's out right now by rancher now that's really fascinating and a lot of that is about the post civil war era and the radical Republicans in the attempt to reconstruct construct south and how that failed one of the great tragedies in American history. I love history fascinating stuff so it's hard for me. Choose one particular era. I can usually people ask that I ask give me an era and then I'll trying give you a book. That's good about that era and you're like an encyclopedia library. I mean I I have some I mean I I feel bad now. My wife is doing the comrie method and we're talking about this before and I'm thinking about which books to get rid of yeah. and I WANNA make a list of the books that I have at least I can refer back in my mind to where I got stuff but I have at home something like seventy five five hundred books and so I have to I have to go through all of that and figure out many books yeah and it probably read eighty percent of them. Maybe wow maybe five percents so when you walk into a bookstore you're perusing online what makes you have you ever gone to buy a book that you didn't intend by. What made you buy that book so I I used to do this a lot when I was in law school so when you now the kids once you have kids you have no time for anything the serve kids it might actually like it but mike his kids like it too but then it's also you have to put all the books back? That's true myself. Yeah my son's a wreck I mean he'll just like burn down on the store but my daughter will sit there and really enjoy but you know when I when I was in law school every spare minute basically because there's nothing to do in Cambridge in the winter I mean it's dark and cold and terrible and so every minute I just walked down to the Harvard Bookstore or some of these bookstores they had down there now just browse and the usually I'd go to a particular section and yeah I would use the blurbs on the back of the book is sort of a guide as to at least where it was gonNA stand politically nonfiction book when it came to fiction I would usually go through you know top hundred lists and see what people had to say yeah and then I checked to see if the premise was interesting yeah and so that's why if I look at top hundred lists of top hundred novels voles all read most of them but I do the same thing with movies like if I wanted to watch movie when I was back in college law school I would go to the top hundred listen. I I would just watch something on the list so literally seen every single movie on the top one hundred and that's and I mean it's not a bad way to do it. I mean at least you've you've read the stuff that's supposed to be great trade even if it doesn't end up being great or seen that sort of stuff but at the coal thing to go off of that yeah I mean now when I go to a bookstore it's more like is there an author who I like and is there a new book out by that author author so there's book I'm reading right now. Call deeper calmer ALANTHEA's and I think he's he wrote a book called Matterhorn about the Vietnam War. This book is about the logging in the in the late nineteenth century in Oregon but he's a great author and he can really right and so for him. It was like a new Book Came Out Wall Street Journal Book Review Section is the single best thing in print. It's great their view section is just fantastic and so every Shibat my parents who subscribed bring that over and I read that through I get a lot of my new book recommendations from their call all right in a recent conversation station about the Second Amendment with a friend I mentioned that it is important because it is a right protected by the Constitution to which he responded quote but the Constitution is old close quote. How would you have responded to him by laughing hysterically at his stupidity? That's that's that's the dumbest response ever. You know what is old a lot of stuff and you know it's good a lot of stuff and you know what's dumb a lot of new stuff like why is the age thing or an idea somehow representative quality. There are a lot of dumb new ideas. The idea that a man can become a woman is idiotic this new oh idea you know it's an old idea that a man cannot become a woman that happens to be far more intelligence. You know it's an old idea. The stuff in the ten commandments seems pretty intelligent to me. Yeah I mean there's there's lots of stoats watches. I mean there's antique but in terms of Principles I mean my whole book is about the idea that a smart person looks at the past and tries to call from the past what is quality and then card away. What is not a stupid person looks at the past and says all those old idiots? They didn't know anything and if I had been them I'd be saying exactly same thing I'm saying today and it's a really stupid. Irritating juvenile way of reading history is why you see people like George Washington slaves. I'm a better person than George Washington like nope. You're not. I'm sorry to tell you this probably not smarter probably not better and you didn't live then so you don't know and this idea that you would have you'd have been there new. You would've said to George Washington. You know what's wrong with you. You're not for gay rights. If you're living like seventeen eighty sure I'm sure that's what you would have said. Also in your fantasy world you get green energy from Unicorn and so what what what are you what are you talking about people exist in the context in which they live and there's something also deeply sell flattering about that and deeply insulting wanting to people who live in parts of the world that disagree with your values by the way you know you have all of these people who are like Oh yeah all cultures are equal and all ideas are equal the same people will then suggest that their ideas are so so eminently correct in so eminently obvious that could born been born at any time in any place and they would have held those values regardless said well. Guess what you know. The number of people who hold your values across the span span of human history is like seven really the the people who are living right now some of them hold your values not the vast majority of humanity. The vast majority of humanity does not hold your values and so maybe you should think think about how did your values rise. Where did they come from? What are the roots of those values? Even the values that you think are different than new very often they have roots and values that are older so the roots of same sex marriage for example that the argument libertarian argument is not hurting anybody and so it's nobody else's business what I do well that is a that is a value that is founded a belief in individual rights and individual worth and value and that in turn is found in a belief that you are an individual human being with unique value and that's actually a biblical value so you can take Biblical valley wide variety of directions and that doesn't mean that the current interpretation of the biblical value is is necessarily correct but if you.

"Ben by comparison cleaning the closet seems more easy. And although before you didn't necessarily wanna clean the closet in contrast taxes. It seems like a good thing to do. But really in that situation as you're saying, it is a distraction, and so one of the ways that you can handle that is to realize that with the taxes. It's never going to be something that you like and saying what's at stake. If I don't get this done. What happens if I don't get my taxes done? And then it's like, okay that will be more paperwork, and what are the benefits of getting the taxes done will the best benefit of getting taxes done. Is you just have to stop think you get a break from it? You're done with it. You get it behind you. And so it is almost like our brain wants to choose something that's easier, and we fool ourselves that we're being productive. When actually what we are doing is avoiding taxes. And so in that situation. You can also say cleaning the closet is really just meet avoiding taxes. So let's get real doesn't just having a will thought out to do list solve a lot of this. If you know for me, I if I have a list of things, and I know I can go down the list and cross them off as I go. I'm just much more likely to do it. Well, I think that a to do list can be helpful one of the things that I recommend is that what whatever kind of to-do list that you have every day you have three high priority tasks because we can get lost in our to do lists. And we may not have a good strategy for figuring out what the priority in. What's not not a priority? I mean, like you said you on your your to do list, it could be taxes done in clean closet. Obviously, you know, that's not going to help you focus and do the most important thing. I, but it does seem that writing things down in some kind of order makes it more likely that things will get done than it all just sits in your head. And I don't know what to do next. Oh, absolutely. So one of the things I recommend is that like on a Sunday night right out pretty much everything you want to get done for the rest of the week. And then what you do is on Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday you right in. Three tasks for each day. And that way, you know, you highest priorities on Monday things that are not so timely on Friday. And so he then you put three main tasks on each day. Now that doesn't mean you're only doing three tasks that means those are the things at once you not those out, you know, you've you've you're on track you're on target. So absolutely used to do this. But you don't wanna have a fifteen item to do list sitting in front of you every morning you wake up. What do we know what a science tell us about the ability of of your brain to stay on task.

It's always been more of a family person than a friend's person. Honestly, the thing that would have been interested. I always liked to have interesting conversations with people, so you'd actually have to be interested in things.

I think it's more much more individually driven religion from it. I think for women for for this majority women, I know who are attracted to religion. It really is a lot less about sort of personal experience with God and a lot more about experience within a community. It's within I, it's about being ensconced in a church that believes things it's about being in scouts in a in a social fabric that brings up children in a particular way. And when women lose the community, they tend to become less religious. Generally men. Have to be individually sort of brought into the fold, and it's not as much about the feeling of community as it is about. Do I have a relationship with God on a personal level or not? That's a harder thing to do. Generally and men. All human beings tend to be arrogant when they are when they are doing well, and they tend to blame when they're doing poorly, which tends to cut against God if when things are going well, you see, I don't need God. I'm doing all this myself. Then you're not going to be religious. And if when things are going poorly, you say, this is all God's fault. You're less likely to be religious as well. So individual religion is a lot harder to keep them communal religion. And that's why in Judaism, there's always been a feeling that women were what kept the Jewish people go. I mean, this goes all the way back to Egypt and the bible. When the women were maintaining the lives of Jewish infants in the face of genocidal terror from the from pharaoh, it was the women who are really doing that job. It really wasn't the man. All right. At least says, Hello. Ben slash Thanos can use the Infinity stones to control the weather. Maybe the power stone to make the sun brighter or the reality stone to create rain. Please in lightness, mad titan. Well, I mean, as you saw, I sent my fingers did not disappear. So obviously my power. Are deeply limited. There's only so much I can do. I didn't even have to snap my fingers, make Jim's gun go away, but when it comes to, but when it comes to members of the office who I don't like or political opponents, apparently I'm much less successful with with the snapping strategy that also like Jews controlled the weather. So you're supposed to have the Infinity stones and and your. At our synagogue every every evening we decide what we want the weather to be tomorrow. This is why I mean with with this hurricane bearing down the east coast, I think you can safely say that these are not regions. Well, populated by Jews. Obviously, if the Jews were there, they would been able to turn the side, the hurricanes blue by holding up their hands and it's definitely not Senator. So Sean district? No, it is not she. She controls the weather that is true. Says, who would you consider to be the greatest writers in the English language in terms of style? Is there anyone in particular that you try to emulate in your own writing? So I mean in terms of fiction, the people who usually are named here are Nabokov who's were choices, spectacular. If you repeal fire, for example, as we're choice, it's just beautiful Faulkner in terms of the stylistics in terms of in terms of plotting ideas. I do love Herman Melville. I've always been partial to Moby Dick. If you are talking about sort of humorous style than Mark Twain. I love an awful lot as far as who I try to emulate my own style. The truth is I don't late anybody in my own style at this point. And that's because you spend a lifetime writing in various different styles out tonos younger. I was purposefully trying to emulate Ann Coulter who's very popular at the time. And then over time you say, I don't really want to be in that space and you start trying to emulate Charles Krauthammer for example. And now I would say I really don't think about who to emulate..

"So things I like today last night I had the opportunity to go see peration finale with Oscar, Isaac and and Ben Kingsley. Ben Kingsley is one of the best living actors. Ben Kingsley is just from in everything and he is. Predictably excellent. In this he plays Adolf Eichmann the Nazi a mastermind of logistics during the holocaust and Oscar Isaac plays in Israeli agent who is tasked with tracking him down, not only track him down, but also getting him to sign a document that gives permission for his trial to be held in Israel and the face off between the two of them is the best part of the movie. The movie is effective. It's very effective, not only is ineffective. I was I'm always pleased when there's no sucker punch. So whenever I see a movie that set up like this, I always think okay. Here comes. The soccer puncture comes these Steven Spielberg Munich, like sucker punch where we learned that the Israelis are really the Nazis or the Israelis are really great oppressors in Munich. That's what Spielberg did. He had tear their Palestinian terrorists murdered Israeli athletes at the Olympics. And somehow Steven Spielberg drew immoral equivalence between those people and Israeli agents tracking them down, which is an amazing, amazing feat of sort of intellectual gymnastics and moral gymnastics in this particular movie. However, there are no sucker punches. Israel is perceived as good because. It is a good country filled with people who are trying to survive in the face of radical anti semitism across the world and the Nazis are bad. Also, the movie takes some serious issues with regard to the banality of evil. So Hon rent very, very famous writer with I have far left leanings on politics. She wrote an entire book called Eichmann in Jerusalem about Eichmann's trial because I wasn't fact brought back to Israel for trial. He was put inside a glass booth actually to prevent him from being assassinated. And he and he was then hanged, Hon rents didn't entire book on him in basically, she made the claim that Aikman was just ineffective the banality of evil to fray shoes, the banality people. Now I have some fondness toward the idea that human beings our program to look the other way when their in group is threatened. When you're in group is threatened that you tend to go along with evil. But for you to be an architect of evil, I think, requires a little bit more. It seems that later research has sort of shown hunt, rents banality of evil point as applied to Adolf Eichmann to be kind of ridiculous. That wasn't fact rabid anti Semite who hated Jews and. And was willing to use any methods disposal to kill them in large numbers. But the movie really does cope with with some of those issues. Here is a little bit of the preview for operation. Finale. You have no interest in what I say. Unless it confers, if you think you will really know. Chope was simple. The country. I thought from being destroyed. She'll chop into front. So the movie is quite good. Again, it's it's, I think it doesn't sucker punch anybody. It does demonstrate the one thing that is shocked means the viewer Lynch of anti-semitism under the Perron regime in Argentina. They have a, you have a bunch of people on the left who somehow still have fondness for the parents in Argentina, which is kind of shocking. But the Peron regime wasn't eating evil regime and they shielded a crapload of Nazis who are attempting to escape dressed as after World War Two. Go check it out operation. Finale theaters right now..
