Joe Manchin Is a Hero for Killing 'BBB'

"I am filled with awe. A human being ran the mile to say this would be. When did roger banister run the mile in four minutes? In the 50s, yeah? So that was awesome. First guy first westerners to climb Everest. That's awesome. Beethoven's third is awesome. The pie you had is not awesome. Anyway, it doesn't matter. It is what it is, but hero shouldn't be overused and it is. And we have a hero Joe Manchin, senator from West Virginia. The amount of vitriol and hate that this man receives. I would say that right now it is only second. To watch Donald Trump received when he was president. Is that fair to say? Who's the most hated person in America? On the part of the left. And Democrats, which is the party of the left. Joe Manchin. And his family as well. It's targeted needless to say that that's now that is now conventional. To go to the homes of politicians and other public figures with whom you differ. It's another institution innovated by the left. By the way, if anybody on the right ever does it, I condemn it too. They have to be rules in life of civility. Rules of civility. That would be awesome. People lived by rules of civility. So that man is a hero. What this bill was, this bill, what was the amount?

Jim Ryun Was the First High Schooler to Break the 4-Minute Mile

"Take us through those two years. How did you know that you would because again. I want the headline from for my listeners. Understand that you broke the four minute mile in high school. This is an unbelievable thing. It wasn't until roger bannister in the fifties broke the four minute mile. He was views after college. I guess he was already a surgeon or something doctor. But you did. This is a high schooler and two years before you'd never run. So what were those two years like suddenly discovering this talent well to begin with it was very very painful Whether if your listeners you may have had them to shin-splints. I had shin-splints the first six weeks that iran which is basically very painful for every step you take somehow a god gave me the perseverance to go through their And then i finally made see the last place on the c team. We had three levels across country is go. Abmc was the last person on the c team and then this phenomenal thing happened here within the next six weeks by the time we get to the state meet. I ended up being on the varsity team and finished sixth in the state meeting cross country and i was elated. I thought this is grand It was grand is because one of my goals was to make the team When away other goals was to get a girlfriend. And i got a letter. Jack and girlfriend in jack went together but it didn't so that was kind of the beginning for me very infants steps and then this phenomenal thing happened in the next six months where i went from a five thirty eight mile to a four zero seven mile which i still find it hard to believe i see your eyes opping well because i think i could have run a five thirty eight mile when i was younger now. I'm not kidding but that's it you know. Maybe maybe if i had trained i could've gone it down to five twenty years. I don't know but the idea that you had the ability to become one of the greatest milers in the history of

"If you have the an opportunity not a perfect opportunity and you take it. You may never have another chance and it was that thought i think which eventually led me to attempted the if lee road track where the race was held. By the way was later renamed the roger bannister running. Track and fifty years later banisters. Running legs would end up on the fifty pence coin. Here's roger bannister's description of the race. That day i done nothing for five days. I hadn't trained. I just rested and so i felt very full of running and in the first lap i was following him and i said foster foster an order and in fact he was going absolutely the right pace. It was just. I was so full of running. The i didn't feel that. I was running fast. He ran the first lap correctly in fifty eight He took us to the half mile in two minutes then. Chataway took over and he passed the three quarter mile in three minutes. Exactly as planned And then i knew that i had to. We were that slowing down. You'd never to be. And i had to do the last lap in under sixty seconds the famous that i took chataway at the beginning of the mixed loss bend. The end of the end of that bidden overtook him and then had run as fast. As and here he comes bannister. Go streaking with about two hundred and fifty yards to. The tapes does a look at his action as long legs cut him. Nearer will record. I did collapse in the end. It because if you do keep on running keep your blood circulating. Then you get of failure. The muscles stop pumping the blood back. And you get dizzy. And i did lose my sight for a bit because i i was crowded in by everybody rushed onto. Track has done it. now he's out on his feet. He's coaching team manica. Tell him he's a team. His ambition the mile in three minutes. Fifty nine point four seconds a magnificent win for great britain and then the whole food fact excluded managed a medical student has slipped gunda hogs greg old by two seconds with disarming modesty. He has this to say about his time. I can say is that alone denies that it was a great surprise to me to be able to today and i think i was very lucky. Soon after the race roger bannister took six weeks to write down his thoughts about the gifts of running in a book called. I four minutes. It's title was later. Changed to the four minute mile. After that he went back to his love of running simply for pleasure. He became very involved in promoting sports for young people and he used his celebrity to that end but other than that. he didn't have too much use for it. This is something that is a feature of young. it's simple and it can be completed When one is twenty twenty. Five as i was and then it's finished and in my case i then turned to medicine which was what my life was going to be but it is a very curious exposure to fame and publicity and it also gives the opportunity to realize that these things are transient and essentially unimportant. The practice of neurology became roger bannister's primary passion. He worked as a clinical doctor and researcher. He wrote the first textbook about the diseases connected to the auto nomadic nervous system. That's the part of your nervous system. That controls unconscious actions like breathing sweating and circulation. He made contributions significant enough to earn him a lifetime. Achievement award from the american academy of neurology. Those are the contributions. He.

"If i had won the gold medal. I would probably have retired because olympic gold medal. Fifty nine meters high and would just go on with our work. But i felt angry with the press angry at myself. Angry with the organizers int- and foot about it and so often fought. I decided would be possible to work and go on training medical training. He wanted a chance to prove himself and so he plotted out how he would improve his time enough. Not just to beat his rivals but to reach the holy grail. The sub four minute mile. He figured it would take about two years. Using his slow and steady method bannister was now a full-time doctor and training at saint. Mary's hospital medical school in london. So his running richmond was even more restricted but he was determined to prove his goal was possible despite what anyone else thought john landy. My rival ran full minutes and two seconds three or four times and he used the phrase. It's like a wall now logically. I could not understand as a physiologist. Why human being can run a mine in four minutes matuzek four minutes and one second why somebody else wound inevitably come along train. A little better knew that the target to be beaten And beat it so that was my mental approach to it. It was just fortunate to for me. That the pathway of record-breaking which continues in all aspects of athletics had just reached this magical critical full minutes four laps of one minute each On a quarter mile track. That was really the reason why it had conspired to become a possible barrier physical or psychological It wasn't in my view physical but it did become to some extent psychological and it was really An example would paradigm is is correct paradigms of human achievement in a purely athletic sense. What limits are the to what the body could so it eat the quad. This aura. roger bannister didn't wait for the european championship or any other grand competition. There was an upcoming meet at oxford his alma mater and he thought it might just be the right moment bannister was running for the british amateur athletic association against the oxford team and the race would be on the iffley road track terrain bannister knew very well. The date may sex nineteen fifty four. Real problem was that may is a very early time in the year and the weather is usually bad and you cannot run a false mile race if there is a strong wind because the wind all eight may be behind you all the time it makes your running uneven. The only way that you can Who achieve a four minute. Mile is to run it as evenly paced as possible. So that your energy expenditure spread out and you mix your aerobic and anaerobic energy supplies in an appropriate and efficient way so The opportunity was there. The question was was the weather which was very bad into been raining. Windy such that. It was impossible to do it and to try to do something. When external seconds has made it impossible would have made me feel that it was a more difficult task. Maybe there is a barrier about about four four minutes. My colleagues chris. Chataway chris gracia who had agreed. Were running on my side in the race against the universe had agreed to set a reasonable pace. And would i be able to get them to cooperate on some future occasion or might john landy. Who would then gone to Finland to be given the perfect opportunities and basic. Would he do it. I so about twenty minutes before the race. The weather seemed to improve. I said let's do it and So we all that was. The setting rumor has it. That roger bannister actually made hospital rounds the morning of the race. He says that's an exaggeration. I went into my hospital in london's marriages and i didn't rounds. But what i did was. I went into the physiological technicians lab and i shop the spikes because those were sticky tracks made of electricity ash with them and your spikes which were really quite long than not to say on would would would catch the material the track and your shoe would get heavier and i was simply Filing drown and rubbing some graphite on the on the spikes. So that i. I would run more effectively. I then got a train up to oxford. I then had lunch with some long term friends and then spent the rest of the afternoon looking well and going through it was so strange really to be able to withhold the decision. You might think that that you have to have it in your mind actually homed on doing it continuously but in my case. That wasn't true. When i decided that the weather i had to take the chance The the real thought in my mind. By then i did have a coach trend sample and he. We met by chance in in the train plan to do this. And he said if the weather is bad what you have to remember is that a. I think you can run the two three fifty six. Which is what a coach would say so. I didn't pay too much attention to that. But the thing is that.

We seem to me logical the you could go on improving and you didn't have to spend all day running to me. Running was an experiment. Here muscles Here was a heart here where lungs to what extent convinced bit of machinery Be trained to do a very specific skilled task. And i knew that the training had to fit the event. How do you manage to release a physical nervous energy over four minutes. He approached training in other words someone who'd studied physiology which of course he had and that's why he decided he could go it alone. Without a coach there was a coach. But i fell out with him. He said you do this. And i said why. Do i do this and he said well you do this. Because i'm the coach it and He might be do a time trial And he'd be hoagie walk. And i'd say what time did i do. He said oh. Don't worry about that. I mean although he'd been quite well known he was actually a coach to Someone grew jack lovelock. Who won the olympic fifteen hundred meters in one thousand nine hundred six but Played as i was. I was independent and i felt about running. It was my task to find out what suited me what didn't suit me. How much training could i do. And then Improve my performance and not let my performance go down. Because i was training too hard and these things which seem to me so individual. The nobody else was going to understand me to this degree. That was the reason why pursued a raw. The lewdly farrow and. I made the decision that i wouldn't compete in the olympic games and i reached a position in which i was being criticized in the press for not racing often enough. They said his this chap and we think he's good. We want to see him. And i said well no i mean i if i want to run. Does nobody paying me to run. If i think that five races a year is the right and if i feel that I work up towards the peak in the middle of the season That's what i'm going to do. But everything came unstuck in a big way. Because i pursued this kind of approach with a lot of press criticism and eventually they said well. Okay you know if he wins. The gold medal and helsinki fifty two. He'll be right he's he's done the right thing. And so roger bannister just went. Hit doing it in his own unorthodox and you might even say eccentric way. Every year i suppose i would be reducing my mile best time by two or three seconds starting for eighteen and then graduate coming and basically i was doing in civil rate training. I had so many other interests that i wanted to have my evenings free and i would usually miss lunch And sometimes there were rather unimportant. Lectures Twelve o'clock. So i i would tend to take about two hours off To travel to a track spend about thirty five minutes running but running very hard and then just have shah. Didn't warm up didn't warm down at a shah would get some summing tweet and get back to the hospital By two o'clock and four years later in nineteen fifty two. He was ready to go for the gold. The management of events in the olympic games. He's left to lukoil organizers and it was said afterwards that there had been a rather deliberate attempt. Just three weeks before the helsinki olympics. Because i was the favorite to change the program and they had three races on three successive days which were unnecessary previous. Those be heats the day's rest. Today's rest on a final. That was what i was planning for. I could have coped with it but by the third day these successive races. I didn't run.

Holiday was going to Ah guest has usually in the lake district or Or wales where Woking was part of the holiday you did walk banisters. parents were not well educated. They hadn't been able to afford university but they prized education and books and instilled in their son a yearning for more. I want to have some success. I came from quite a simple origin with any great privilege. And that's how. I also wanted to make a mock and it wasn't i suppose until i was about fifteen that i appeared race. I was playing rugby and the other games english school children do and there was an event which was planned in which racists were rotten and i simply just one these i've it considerable much and so everybody thought this is special. But what about his parents would. They think about his talent for running. They were supportive. But at the time i was about to break a world record already Become well known. My mother used to say did. It's all very well. Is running business. But i hope it doesn't distract you from your work as a medical student the so in other words i got the impression that for her. The only important thing was for me to become a doctor which as it were was a career which had not been possible in her her generation in her society. Sir roger says he never had any doubt that he would become a doctor and he never had any illusions about his talent for running. Yes it's just a a kind of gift that You have to be able to do this better than other people But it shouldn't mean the chill something very very special. Because i suppose it's has its intellectual elemental. Running has sport has its intellectual element but the more important basic quality is a physical one which is probably genetic. Roger bannister was interviewed twice for the academy of achievement. And both times. He was exceedingly humble the first time in two thousand. He spoke with mark. Pack actor who was then the head of the national portrait gallery in washington. Two years later he spoke with journalist. Gail i can tho. You're hearing excerpts of both these conversations in the podcast. Okay so with that. Little bit of business behind us. Back to how roger bannister became a runner so beloved so great. He was named sports illustrated magazine's fairy first sportsman of the year of course now called sports person of their yes. Bannister had a natural love of running. Yes he found it easy and yes he was getting some nice recognition for his speed and then his father took him to see a meet. The two parts to running there is the simple enjoyment. Who's you run through the countryside. A pure pleasure without any target and this showed me a kind of forum in which success could be crystalized. Those who were watching applauded and the was a a gladiatorial interplay between the athletes. And i watched an english runner called sydney. Who had held the world record for the mile. And who's being a british preoccupation to hold this mile record or a series of english runners who had held it. And i watched him off to the end of the war in nineteen forty five running against the world record holders from sweden and he was not in the same league but he came up and challenge to the world record holder on the lost and the the challenge was easily fought off by the sweet. But there was a feeling of the courage that he showed in tackling Sweet who looked physically strong more elegant will powerful would as soon as rather small this exchange. This battle was i. Think the thing which led me to go on from simple running for pleasure running with this targets of records olympic games and other events in mind the year after seeing that race roger bannister entered oxford university on a scholarship. He was only seventeen years old and a little out of place on campus. I would say that. My athleticism was really the corta social acceptance. But i actually arrived in oxford in nineteen forty six which when a large number of ex-servicemen came back and they had deferred entry to university in order to fight during the war. And so we were alongside veterans who you wore medals and the had been injured and some of them of course had been relatively senior promoted senior. Two senior ranks You know by losses on the battlefield so very strange time and in a sense we had nothing in common with them Except a sport and that was another reason he wanted to race competitively at the college level. But it was not a foregone conclusion that he'd make the team in fact bannister said. It was a big surprise when he did. It was a dreadful winter in nineteen forty seven minutes. Historically those never been winter like it since and the track was frozen and they have trials. And so i could prove that i could be in the team and i previous best. Time was About five minutes they won freshman's race and but i'd been seen shoveling away the snow rather Vigorously and so the captains and sport is entirely run by students. You know the captain said well look just as a third string that means the the third runner who is not expected to do it. Why didn't we put him in and Put me in and then on the race itself. I just overtook all the rest of the field and wotton which is a time which was thirty seconds faster than i done before but very modest of course four and a half minutes and that was the beginning of an eight year process. In which every year i improved. Then after eight years i was near the world record but back in nineteen forty seven four and a half minute mile was considered a great time. Everyone assumed roger bannister would compete in the forty eight olympics which were held in london for goodness sake. He was invited to compete but he declined in those days. I didn't train very much. We didn't really know how to trade in and There was this thing called burning yourself out. And i didn't want to burn myself holiday team. I had a notion that if i.

To many of the general public is lit. It's filled with reversals. What you think may happen doesn't happen. A champion is an unknown becomes a champion for the next thirty minutes.

That will be needed to continue to improve year. by sir. roger bannister is eighty seven as i record this episode and living in oxford england. He ran in the helsinki olympics in nineteen fifty two. But that's not where he smashed through the four minute barrier a feat that challenged people's idea of what was humanly possible.

Bannister was studying medicine at the time working toward becoming neurologist which he did by the way and that wasn't the only unusual thing about the path this lanky middle distance runner had taken manager a superb tactician has suffered some criticism in the past what adopting his own rather unorthodox training methods. But they're paying dividends now despite the slight wind. He's talking great time. We'll get back to that newsreel. No rush we know how the race ends. But i wanna walk the story back fifteen years before it began to nineteen thirty. Nine when little roger bannister was living in a suburb of london. His family soon to move to bath. I said a minute ago that it was a simpler time but it wasn't really in many respects world. War two was about to begin. Well i've always been very impatient. And i frankly found life age ten in this suburb and this school boring and i can remember age. Nine having the awful thought as it seems now looking back on it a war that should live and things up a bit. The first air raid siren sounded. When i was still in london and i ran back from the park. Where i'd been playing home airing this of course. Nothing happened for six months with what we call the phony wall But when i went to bath there was some reprisal bombings and our house was actually bombed and the roof fell in and we were sitting in the basement under the under the stairs of the basement and we were quite safe but it ruled home realize ation in two nights. Four hundred people were killed in this relatively small town and so on the third night. I persuaded my parents that we should leave. It was no rate expected but as it had happened on two nights we went out of boston and camped overnight about four miles away in would but my discovery involved was of the countryside. I loved the countryside. I cycled from the age of sort of ten to fifteen all around Boston somerset and cheddar gorge and the sites of castles and country houses And i remember that as a time of freedom often perhaps a bit solitary but Great excitement.

They may boast and open countenance and ingenuous smile. Yes, a little of their company leaves the unalterable conviction that there is something radically a mess with there being that they are evil willy-nilly they seem to communicate in an atmosphere of secret and wicked thoughts which makes those in their immediate neighborhood shrink from them as from a thing has eased. and perhaps with houses the same Principle as operative and it is the aroma of evil Deeds committed under a particular roof long after the actual dose of passed away that makes the gooseflesh come and the hair rise something of the original Passion of the evildoer and of the horror of felt by his victim enters the heart of the innocent Watcher home and he becomes suddenly conscious of tingling nerves creeping skin and a chilling of the blood his terror-stricken without apparent cause There was manifestly nothing in the external appearance of this particular house to Bear out the tales of the horror that was said to rain within it was neither lonely nor unkempt stood crowded into a corner of the square and looked exactly like the houses on either side of it. It had same number of windows. It's neighbors the same balcony overlooking the gardens off the same white steps leading up to the heavy black front door. And in the rear there was the same narrow strip of green with neat box borders running up to the wall that divided it from the back of the adjoining houses. Apparently to the number of Chimney pots on the roof was the same the breadth and angle of the eaves and even the height of the dirty area railings month and yet in this house and the square seen precisely similar to its fifty ugly neighbors was as a matter of fact entirely different horribly different wearing latest marked invisible difference is impossible to say it cannot be ascribed holy to the imagination because persons who would spend some time in the house knowing nothing of the facts that declawed positively that certain rooms were so disagreeable. They would rather die than enter them again and that the atmosphere of the whole house produced in them symptoms of a genuine Terror while a series of innocent tenants who are trying to live in it and being forced to be camp at the shortest possible notice was indeed little less than a scandal in the town. One short has arrived to pay a weekend visit his aunt Julia and her little house on the seafront at the other end of the town. He found her charge to the brim with mystery and excitement.

"Do you people round mile in less than four minutes between the first summer Olympics in eighteen, ninety six, and the Summer Olympics of nineteen, fifty, six zero. When Roger Bounced around the first sub format mile in the early nineteen fifties. No one had ever done it before. It was an historic moment and very few interested. They don't know his name. Do you know many people have run a four minute mile? Sense Roger Bannister. Yet I don't know either. There are so many I couldn't find the answer. Hundreds ten high school students have done it. How many people before Nineteen fifty-two dismissed the idea of four mile as impossible. And? Can you blame them? How do you tell someone with a straight face to shoot for something that's never been done. How do you even convince them? It's possible. Leader I admire lot as a man named vision luck Yanni, he's the CEO of a Malaysian company. Specializing education called Mine Valley and he says our beliefs distort our reality, meaning what we believe to be true become true. It's the reason all good teachers treat their students like their high performance. Right from the beginning the moment student believes there are a low performer. Their performance will drop. In two thousand, eight and two thousand nine, a researcher at Vanderbilt University named Ray Friedman administered attest to a group of college students in the Group of tests taken in two thousand and eight before Barack Obama was elected president, white students consistently outperformed black students, but in the test administered in two thousand nine after Barack Obama was elected president. The score gap between black and white students disappeared completely. Freeman hypothesized that when people see examples, evidence proof of something happening to other people, they can relate to their belief that it could happen to themselves rises. Over the last two weeks I've had conversations with almost two dozen leaders of people. And, some of them are really struggling to figure out what part they need to be playing in the momentum that is slowly building out of the outrage. Injuries caused in perpetuated over generations require generations to heal, and that can leave some people with a feeling of hopelessness. I can't possibly do anything myself, so let me just put my head down to the best I can and hope I get through this. But there's so much you can do, and it doesn't require hashtags or fighting with people on social media. Start with your hiring practices I've looked at thousands of resumes and employment applications over the years and I've interviewed hundreds of people for Jobs I. Can honestly say some of the best employs ever met would never have even applied if I hadn't spent serious time courting them. And, when I've asked them why they never thought of applying, they say something along the lines of I never thought I'd fit in there. If you're a leader, a people and you're fortunate enough to work for an organization where dozens of people will apply for any opening you have. This is undoubtedly affecting you even more after all. You always seem to have enough applicants. Why would you ever feel the need to spend time and resources seeking out even more applicants? But if your workforce doesn't look like the communities, your workforce is serving. You have work to do. Because the law of averages, says that absent any preconceived notions on both your part and part of the applicants, your work for should be pretty representative of your clients or customers.

"Hello words welcome to another episode of this. Podcast called the dictionary. The only podcast in the world where some idiot is reading the dictionary. I was listening to the Ronan Farrow episode on mearns podcasts. W T.F right before I started recording this episode and boy do I feel dumb He's a very very smart man and You know just listening. To the words he uses and the fact that he knows how to use those words And just a very smart man in general Yeah I just feel like wow I especially when it comes to words I've always been pretty dumb in that world. There's a there's a part of my brain that is lacking and I stumble over words. I can't think of words I'm learning new words This is part of the reason why I'm doing. This is because there's a lot of words out there that I don't know I'm never going to comprehend them all never going to remember them all But it is helping My brain in some way And I think I really really needed that. I'm much better at visual things and math and science and stuff like that and This world of words Is Hard for me always has been hard for me. so Yeah that's just a little bit about me and You know I'm sure some of you are like yeah. You are dumb. You didn't know this word. God you're silly But I I I. I'm doing this for myself. If any of you are enjoying this. I hope you get some enjoyment out of hearing me stumble and be stupid all right. Let's talk about some words. The first word is bankrupt B. A. N. K. R. U. P. team. It is the I form. It is a noun from fifteen thirty three one. A person who has done any of the acts that by law entitled creditors to have his or her estate administ- administered for their benefit one be a person judiciously declared subject to having his or her estate administered under the bankruptcy laws for the benefit of creditors. One see a person who becomes solvent to a person who is completely lacking in a particular desirable quality or attribute as in a moral bankrupt. This is a modified form or version of middle for French and Old Italian Middle French bunker route B. 'N Q. U. E. R. O. Ut that means bankruptcy from old Italian Banca rata from Bunka which means bank plus rata which means broken so bank rata is Banca plus rata which means basically broken bank and that's From Latin RIPTA. Which is the feminine of -Rupt US which is from the verb repair eight which means to break and there's more at the Word Bank and Reeve R. E. A. V. E. So Broken Bank is where we go. Get the word bankrupt now. We have the second form of bankrupt. It is an adjective from fifteen sixty six won a reduced to a state of financial ruin. Synonym is impoverished specifically legally declared. A bankrupt as in the company went bankrupt. One B of or relating to bankruptcy OR BANKRUPTCY AS IN BANKRUPT LAWS. To a we have these synonyms broken and ruined as in a bankrupt. Professional career to be exhausted. Valuable qualities synonym is sterile or sterile. However you WanNa say that as in a bankrupt old culture to see synonym is destitute. And it is used with the word of or in as in bankrupt of all merciful feelings. Now we have the third form of bankrupt. It is a verb from fifteen eighty eight and it looks like it's just transitive. One to reduce to bankruptcy number. Two Synonym is impoverish. As in defections had bankrupted. The Party of it's brain power. What an interesting example defections had bankrupted the party of it's brain power. I wonder if that's a quote from something And then at the end we have a synonym. Which is the word deplete? Now we have the word bankruptcy. It is a noun from seventeen hundred one the quality or state of being bankrupt to utter failure or impoverishment next is bank shot it is two words and We talked about this little bit in. I guess that was the last episode with Word Bank So bank shot it is a noun from eighteen hundred one a shot in billiards and pool. In which a player banks the cue ball or the object ball So I guess that would be. The ball is hit By the cue ball number two a shot in basketball to rebound from the backboard into the basket. Now I want to go play some billiards I really don't get a chance to do that too often. Oh I have funny stories about billiards. But I'm not gonNA tell them on this podcast All RIGHT NEXT WE HAVE BANKS. Ya B. A. N. K. S. I. A. It is a noun from seventeen eighty. Three any of a genus of Australian evergreen trees or shrubs of the Protea family with alternate leathery leaves and flowers in dense. Celinda heads Willa. See if we can post a picture of this one this is a new. Latin is a genus name from Sir. Joseph Banks Who I'm guessing. I named this Australian Evergreen Tree Bank Shia No I think I said bank Shia. It's more bank Zia. So Banks Sia because his last name was banks next. We have bank side. It is a noun from the fifteenth century the slope of a bank especially of a stream. So it's the side that has the Bank of a river or a stream next is banner B. A. N. E. R. It is the I form. It is a noun from the thirteenth century. One a a piece of cloth attached by one edge to a staff and used by a leader and as his standard used by a leader as his standard and then in parentheses after leader. It's as as a monarch or feudal Lord If you know to use a recent example If any of you are fans of game of thrones you see banners all the time in that show And also people talking about banners Bannerman am which is not in the dictionary. But it's you know the people who hold the banners the people who have pledged allegiance to that leader that monarch that feudal lord whatever they are Yeah that's that is Now we have one B and we just have the number one definition for the second form of flag one C One presented as an award or honor. Let me try that again. One presented as an award of honor or distinction to a headline in large type running across a newspaper page. Three a strip of cloth on which a sign is painted as in welcome banners stretched across the street. Oh Yeah you see that a lot especially in movies and TV shows. I guess they happened in the real world too but usually I see them in movies and TV shows four a name slogan or goal associated with a particular group or ideology as in the new banner is community control that was in quotes And that is a quote from F. M. Hurting her Recently said that I was going to try and start finding where these quotes are from After a few episodes of doing that I kind of decided to stop doing that because at first of all. I can't even find. Maybe half of them are more and you know it just takes a little bit more mental effort that. I sometimes don't feel like doing If I motivated. Maybe I'll go look where this quote is from But sometimes it's Kinda hard actually to find where the quotas from and So if you are curious where this quote from F. M. Hetch Inger came from Which is the new banner is community? Control? Then you should go look it up And so just to finish off this number four definition. It says it's often used with the word under as in every new administration arrives under the banner of change and that is a quote from John Cog Louis C. O. G. L. E. Y. number five and advertisement graphic that runs usually across the top of a worldwide web page. And this is calling out the dated. Nece a little bit of this book Which I think is from twenty twelve although I can't remember I don't feel like we really use the phrase worldwide web anymore There's all obviously. Www dot whatever dot com or dot. Whatever But people don't usually say the worldwide Web So this definition needs to be updated a little bit and probably has been updated All right next we have the second form no we're going to talk about the etymology. It is from Middle English Binary Something like that. From anglo-french of Germanic akin to the Gothic Word Bend. Whoa which means sign probably akin to the Greek fainting which means to show and there's more at the word fancy So fainting must be related to fancy so it was very showy and fancy. That's that's the relationship I'm thinking of for that one All right now. We have the second form of banner. It is a transitive verb from eighteen. Hundred nine one to furnish with a banner to to print as a new story under a banner usually on the front page. The third form of banner is an adjective from eighteen. Forty one prominent in support of a political party as in a banner democratic country number two distinguished from all others especially in excellence as in a banner year for business. Now we have better ret It is the first forum. It is a noun from the fourteenth century a night. That is K N I G H T like a knight in shining armor a night leading his vassals into the field under his own banner a banner et now. We have the second form of banner et. It is By the way I didn't spell it before it's the word banner with an E. T. And in the second form it could be with an e t t Like you know a little thing This is a noun from the fourteenth century and it is just a small banner. Very very tiny. You can just stick it in your pocket next. We have banner roll. It is a noun from fifteen forty eight and we have the Synonym Banda role We must read that a while ago and I don't remember what that means. Last word for this episode is Bannister B. A. N. N. I. S. T. E. R. And it is a variation of banister with only one and and Go back a few episodes to learn what that is So we need to pick a word of the episode. I'm going to pick banks as the word because it was Probably the most unique of all the words here other than maybe bannister or maybe bander Mana role. I duNno I dunno what abandoned Rollo's anyway banks. He has the word of the episode. Thank you very much for joining me and listening to me. Banta Ron about words that start with the letter B. in this case and eventually C. and D. And you get the picture thank you and goodbye..

"Premiere networks prisons coast to coast AM with Ian Punnett now here's Ian one of the greatest songs about casual evil the evil we do to others just in our carelessness and it and yet that's not the kind of sinister force that does that Peter Leventis talking about early so that's not what he's hinting at we'll find out the second when he actually is willing to say but I mean I asked him about the occult is one of the occultists been telling him about sinister forces how does that inform what he's writing either fiction or nonfiction and he said what he'd read about in an essay I read once about you follow G. where he he'd come to sort of a reluctant awareness of this strange connection between some of the most famous names revolving around the Kennedy assassination that were also connected to sort of nascent ufology of the early nineteen sixties late fifties and the guy banister being one of them at the guy banister was a proto men in black perhaps who would come knocking on doors of people who are claiming visitations or or some sort of close encounter and and that's fascinating but in talking about Mr forces and talking about the Kennedy assassination he was using the term aliens and so I wanted to know are we talking about the same type of alien you know as opposed to just saying alien sinister forces meaning outside of us something exotic from a strange or pertaining to a strange place of origin or are we talking about extraterrestrial well that question hangs out there we'll get to it next on coast to coast AM this.

I knew the way to find my mom's somewhere around the yard or somewhere around the house was listening for the tinny little sound of that Tropicana Orange Radio in Alex remember one day coming home from school and I heard the radio off in the distance and as it got closer the sound was coming up from above which was a strange orientation and they looked up and I see my tiny mom perched precariously on the roof of our two story house they like as hit your mom I was like what are you doing on a roof argue okay my mom is such a unique character she yells down silver she's like I'm fine don't worry about it the roof adult league in it I called the Roofer he said it would be at least five hundred bucks I said screw that I looked in the rush there was extra asphalt and I said I'll fix it so another day I'm coming home from school and I go in the house and I hear the little radio coming from the back of the House and I listen I followed it and I pushed open the door and as the bathroom in there my mom was sitting in the bathroom there was like dust particles coming down despite sticking out of the wall it looked like there had been an explosion in there and I was like mom are you ok would he doing and she's no I'm fine don't worry about it she said there is you know so cracks in the tile and I didn't want the bathroom to get moldy so I'm retiring the bathroom and unlike just confused and Alex you have to get this the nineteen eighties this is pre enter net pre youtube so she was watching how to videos on how to do this stuff that's exactly right so again this is like an different time in a different era so I always knew I could find my mom by listening down that radio and one day it was the fall time and I was coming home from school the daylight savings had passed dr cows creepy already but when I got up to me house it was quiet like hindrup quiet which is very strange for an Italian American household house was dark I go inside I hear nothing I feel pit in my stomach the one that you get when you just know something is wrong thinking where is my mom and where's the sound of the radio so tiptoeing through the House night here's some clicks and clocks coming from the kitchen I walk over there and I see my mom hunched over our kitchen table the little light on it looked like an operating room in front of her was her beloved little Tropicana Orange in like fifteen pieces she had a screwdriver and electrical tape and I was like all my goodness mom are you okay what's on that your favorite radio she's like already don't worry about it she's like you know the antenna was a little twisted and the dial was off. I'm just fixing it and Alex's the first time that I ever thought to ask I said hey mom how do you know how to do so many different things that you've never done before but nobody's showing you how to do it and she put down her screwdriver over and she cocked her head to the side and she looked and she's like what are you talking about this isn't that big of a deal nothing in life is that complicated if he just set your mind to what you roll up your sleeves you get in can you do it everything is figure out ball now Alex truth be told I don't know if those were her words that's what my childhood ears her written but that's what was absorbed in me and it was like my DNA got shifted on a different level and ever since that moment that little freeze everything is figure audible has been the single most powerful driving force in my life from helping me get out of a toxic relationship when I was very a young who's in abusive relationship helping me get every single job I've ever had since I was nine years old helping me get into college to get work studies to help pay for school you know any job I've had since then getting myself out of debt building a company every single thing that is valuable and meaningful in my life this phrase as has been the driving force underneath it more than that anyone I've had the opportunity to share this little simple idea with has then been able to adopt it and cry AH really powerful changes in their life and so that's why I'm really excited to get it out to our people's hands no kidding you hear the stories about your mom and then you hear that phrase everything is figure out and it's almost like your heart jumps a little bit because you hear that and you're like that's what it should be that is right it's so inspiring what do you think it is about that mindset that just has the ability to light people on fire we'll I think because it reminds them and US of something that we all know deep down but sometimes we forget and that's that each of us are born creators we were given this gift ability to change our thinking to change our minds to take ideas almost from the ether and make them reality I mean Alex the rain now everyone even listening to this show you know at one point in time podcast didn't exist right the Internet didn't exist looking around like I'm sitting on a chair looking at light bulbs I'm in a building in New York City someone had to imagine all of these things into being and then do the work that was necessary to change reality so that's the power that all of us have I think that our educational system just doesn't do a good job teaching us at enough age that we all do have this power and we can use our minds and our hearts and our desires to not only shift our own reality but to create meaningful change in the world that's powerful and it seems like the ramifications of this everything is figure out -able mindset. I mean that certainly obviously it affects the entrepreneur but I think it can affect Act the artists the athlete the person that works in a massive corporation organisation it seems like it transcends just the entrepreneur it absolutely does enemy if we think about some of the most transformative shifts and human history you know from the art to the sciences to medicine if we go all the way back you know Roger Bannister Breaking four-minute mile very shifty sports history and created a new reality for so many people that followed after if you think about John F.

So Robert seen any. I dunno football recently. Yeah, I was down just one game last night. It was crazy. It seemed like there were a lot on Sunday. And then only one yes, just like the old days. There you go. That's right. Monday night football. The Steelers held off the buccaneers thirty to twenty seven for their first win of the year.

Venture capital, firm founders fund and signed Bannister one of the firms more recent partners and an early Uber and. SpaceX investor joins us now here in the studio great to. Have, you on the show so is. This something that you. Imagine everyone would have in their homes like a? Scale or is this a more niche, use case originally the goal is. To have, it, in every home to begin, with you, know it's going to be the person who buys a. Politician who's really cares a lot about personal fitness and so the price. Point is higher to start off way well it's thirteen hundred dollars a scale it's more. Like twenty Okay televisions when they first started out they were in twenty three thousand dollars for the flat screen. TV's you know if you're a pioneer in the space and someone who's an early adopter you're paying more but eventually. We can drive the price down scale. How does the technology actually work has sensors that actually do depth reading, and so you? Stand on the scale and you put your? Arms, onto any tried it I haven't tried to get a highly recommend. One highly, recommend trying it we'll try to hook you up with doing one but you basically stand on a. Pedestal the pedestals turns around then afterwards in about a minute. You, get what looks like a silver. Surfer image of yourself Image and they're able to see, a three d. model of yourself so talk to me about the potential here the kinds of. Information that this can give you? At how, it might change, your life or how you live it well you know I think that we are scale obsessed and we're obsessed with. Numbers that don't really ultimately matter, for your health and so on a scale and you're like gosh I'm two, pounds heavier five pounds heavier ten pounds heavier but. You're. Working out at the gym and, you're making dietary changes those changes are actually really matter and so when you, actually get a three d. body skin you can see what those choices, are actually how, they're impacting your body like sometimes when you work. Out you're gaining weight and so you might become discouraged if you discount? On the scale every day what about the privacy issues here I mean we're so concerned. Especially in light of the Facebook data scandals what, companies know about it. About us how they are using that data if, they're being honest about it if they. Even know where data has gone naked labs takes that very seriously and that's what it reasons why all of this Ganz are done on device, and then the only thing that's only stored there Does not go back to the company the only thing that you. Get back to the company is that little silver server surfer image of yourself so join founders filing now a couple of years. Ago and you an angel investor before that you've backed Uber? You, back. SpaceX what do you think. Are the big mega trends right now oh gosh Well I know what I'm personally, passionate about I don't know that I follow the market and try to figure. Out what the biggest trends are but. I'm personally very passionate. About the future of entertainment and so, I've been doing a lot of investing in that area and so I've. Been, turning over rocks and basically I? Don't know, if you've heard of like hot, tuning Mieko which is a burchell popstar and? She's a hologram billions of people watch her but also there's little, Michaela on Instagram she's a virtual influencer so I did a? Seed investment there, and so there's things that, I'm looking at and trying to figure out okay what is the next Pokemon go you know read an interface with our phones how is augmented reality going to impact us and so there's. Just things I'm really excited you invested in Uber do you think scooters are the next big thing or. Not I think personally my personal opinion is no but I do think they are necessary for certain people like people are really. Happy about them and their cost effective affordable way to get? Around town Have ask you about Nealon since you invested in space it's tesla earnings day founders fund back tesla Does that. Concern you at all that, this is he's running two companies. He's got a lot of side projects he's tweeting all the? Time including right now minutes before called does, that concern you as an investor from an. Execution perspective, we're pretty bullish on Ilan as you, know we're very proud of, everything that, he's accomplished and yes it is a lot to take on but I think that he's. You know showing that he. Can do it But you know I don't speak to? On on a day-to-day basis I actually don't, even know the breadth of everything he's doing. What about, bitcoin founders fund has made big bets, on crypto currency which is, you know, it's actually been an unusual turn Venture in. General do you think, that are, you still bullish and do you expect to, make more investments they're given the volatility in the price I mean. I know everyone's excited about. Blockchain but let's talk. About the value of team we are. Still bullish personally I'm also still bullish so I I don't know if you know the term but I hold, on for dear life as a. Store of value I think it's incredibly valuable it's basically digital gold it's not the best way to transact and so. I think there's going to be other types of currencies.
