"You've heard in the news this week on WTO. Be the first caller at 855-885-1035 to correctly identify the mystery newsmaker and win this week's prize, here is the voice and good luck. Inflation is running too high. It's running 4.5% or above. You don't need to know much more than that It's now 8 11. If you're looking for something to watch this fall, quantum leap is back on NBC. You leap into people to help them or someone around them. Changing history for the better. But don't call it a reboot, cuya P of nerds rule the world says this is a revival. Yes, I'm all about quantum leap coming back and not taking away the original. Again, yes, this is a revival taking place 30 years after the events of that original show. We all remember those beloved adventures. Well, at least I do. To me, it was TV at its finest. It's what we loved about TV. What I really loved about those old Sam Beckett and his partner, you know, there was kind of a bit of a bromance there where you would go back in time into these different time jumps into different bodies. And it was all about to me, it was a story of empathy. The character would have to learn about this new body he's in, learn about his surroundings in order to survive and then make it to that next leap to hopefully take him back home to his present time. And with this series, we are getting very much that if you love quantum bleep, this has all of the DNA of what you know and love with quantum leap with some differences. What I really enjoy about this new series is we get a new character by the name of Raymond Lee who plays doctor Ben song and his significant other, it's his fiance, but he doesn't know that. So we're switching bromance to romance and how does this couple reunite when the partner is leaping throughout time into different bodies. There's also some other hidden mystery layer there that's tied to the present. So everything you love about quantum leap from the original is there, but there's some new DNA to spark something different. And I'm curious where this is going to take us. And because it's a revival, how does that play into what happened with Sam Beckett and the original cast. I'm super excited about this. It's cuya P of nerds rule the world on Skype coming up backlash for a cofounder of Pink Floyd over his views on the war in Ukraine. 8 13. Chow

How the NSBA and FBI Are Exploiting Scott Smith's Arrest

"I want to tell you a little bit about this gentleman I mean they almost took a shirt off while other apprehending him they arrested him I'm sad to say And I think in the Washington examiner Beckett Adams did a very good job of summing it up He wrote Scott Smith was arrested on June 22 At a school board meeting loudon county Virginia there was deemed an unlawful assembly After attendees voiced opposition to a proposed policy expanding special protections to transgender students Smith was dragged from the event in handcuffs his pants falling down his lip bleeding He was charged later with heartily conduct and resisting arrest Smith's arrest soon became a national story The small business owner became an avatar and avatar of anti school board protests representing the unruly and ignorant anti mask anti critical race theory in anti transgender parents and their crusade against the progressive Put upon school officials But few knew until now is that Smith attended the June 22 hearing to confront school board member over his daughter's alleged rape In a school bathroom by a gender fluid boy As I understand it this took place in a high school stone ridge high school Which is where my kids went to high school The details apparently don't matter to the national school board association In a letter to The White House this month that actually highlighted smith's arrest is an example why federal law enforcement agencies need to investigate and prosecute parents who oppose mask mandates and the teaching of critical race theory

"Folks talking to beckett cook beckett cook you just shared something reprised the last couple of sentences. You were Living as a gay man in hollywood for a long time and then one day one day. I walked twelve years ago i walked into. I was invited to an evangelical church in hollywood and against my better judgement. I kind of just went. And and i when i heard the gospel preached and after the after the sermon during the worship time i had this radical kind of road to damascus encounter with god completely changed my entire life did at one eighty and i. I knew immediately that day. That homosexuality was no longer my identity that it was no longer a part of my future. Dating guys wasn't a part of my future. But i didn't care because i just met jesus and i'm like i'm going with that guy like forget those guys. Jesus is way better. And he's always faithful and they'll never leave prefer sick me so since that day. I've let's say my same sex attraction before that day was at one hundred percent after that god had so much grace on me that it barely it doesn't dominate. my thought. Life had barely barely think about it every once in a while. They'll be a moment of same sex attraction. But i'm not quote unquote cured of that. But i'm happy. I'm more than happy to to deny myself to deny my desires sinful desires take cross and follow christ no matter what and and i prayed. I've prayed over the years. And i've had elders at my church.

"And i'm assuming sambu had to work very close together with yourself to create the color palette for this movie because it very much has a color palette and i don't know how intentional certain aspects of the colors of this movie are and of course. I'm sure color grading comes into it as well but i want to ask you about orange. I feel like an orange almost like an orangey. Red sort of color is a particular accent or theme. That comes across it the and it's like the hoodie sweater. That beckett wears the car that is his salvation. Even the color of the opening and closing credits. There's this like this orangey. Red that permeates. The whole movie was intentional. Was this something that you guys thought from the beginning. You want to integrate into the movie. Or am i just in learfield here and seeing something. That's not their first of all. I find anything that somebody sees a movie legitimate so it's fine but look at one of my main. Inspirations in general is photography meaning when for example when thinking about the local film or even content of scenes. I love watching movies. I watch is every day. But i'd like to look at progress and for this movie because ground towing we already mentioned. I looked at a lot of street photography. A lot of american sweet photography thinking for example as stephen shore or william eggleston i just accumulated so many images firing from that and there was always something just obviously so real and documentary to them but do things one..

"That would be dramatic and relatable and therefore also a tone that would feel more realistic rounded gritty at and in some ways believable to both in terms of what inspired the literal plotzker also in terms of what happens when he fights the injuries himself. He runs out of breath after a little bit. Because that's just what happens when you run a lot. He sweats bleeds. Like most people would ask so that definitely that was the point of view of how to approach this fill. Of course you're you're referring to beckett John david washington. Who i think. This is my favorite performance. I've ever seen from him now and speaking the torture and realism that you put them through. And i don't mean torture in literal sense. But he's very put upon and beaten up by the end of the movie. And you feel every single moment of that. I think because all of your action sequences all of your sequences of violence or terror for him feels more grounded in reality than almost any other type of movie that you see where people are you there indestructible or their wounds are never that bad. You feel everything. Looks like with him. And i found myself cringing watching this movie from beginning to end. I wanna bring sambo into this conversation here. Because i feel like it's so easy and it's not easy but it's so easy to go the other way with with camerawork so easy to use the camera as a tool to maybe overstep or enhance beyond. What's playing out in front of it. And you're known for naturalistic cinematography. And for motivated lighting and for not trying to draw too much attention to the camera work and the fact that you're able to do that during scenes of intense thrilling action. And also these sort of breaths that you get to take him between them. I know you should on film. I know that it's impossible to do the type of work you're doing without augmenting. The lighting without adding significant amounts of light because film stock is just not as fast as digital cameras..

"A fun book about blocking exactly. How much of the reading i do. It's like very it's either southwards like racist. It's very intense reading and i. I don't know that i've ever read a frivolous like black fiction. Book made me. Think too. When i just think stories that have non white leads or non straight leads. It's so much more interesting in things that you don't even like. Like i i saw beckett on that flakes with I always forget his name. And and maybe this is going into the hollywood nepotism. But it's a way for him to have that. I'll john washington. Yeah yes johnny washington who apparently had a. He had a brief stint almost nfl career. He i figure was like. I think we've all that like the cleanest uniform. Yes he like. Play morehouse at everybody's always like he could have gone to the nfl. I'm like video europe to play a little bit. And why so. He's in this movie back. Any is running around. And it's a suspense low. What it's a brilliant low budget suspense thriller. Which i if i watch a movie by myself and it's suspenseful. It will take me double the time to watch it. Because i will press pause. Read an article walk away. I gotta call my heart rate dot and real remember is not a real movie with somebody. I won't but like 'cause. I have them to leak. It's scary anyways. But like he's running around greece. And i'm just like oh my god guess i'm not going agrees In this conspiracy thriller attitude thinking. Wow i bet this was probably originally written for like a white guy. Yeah and by casting him in a added a whole entire nother layer. Yes you the experience of the movie and it just made it to me so much more interesting interesting guy. Running around and greece being chased by the way i was always obsessed when they rebooted twenty four and the executive producer made the comment about like the original twenty four was about a man running through the streets constantly to go solve things and he goes but we also had to acknowledge we now have a black man play the lead twenty four and he was like we have to address the fact that like if a black man just takes off running in a crowd. It doesn't. He doesn't just get to his next destination. He's gonna get stopped a few times along. You going to stop this actively. Or i think about all the times i went to see broadway shows that were initially written with white women as the leads and or a white man as the lead. And then you'd go back and you'd like watch waitress with a black woman in. You're like oh jena just went from lake. A sad abused woman who stuck with the baby to now. When she's saying this line about this. You know this town in these patrons of taking more than i gave them. You're like well. Yeah because it's probably a few times. She walks into different places. And you know not. Only she getting treated bad by her husband at home but she's getting it from some of the people in the town or deer. Evan hansen takes on a whole new level of weight. When you're watching jordan fisher do it. 'cause you're like oh not only is he a pathological liar dealing with a lot. It's like bro. you're like the only black person at the school and you lied on a dead kid like what's going to happen. Oh my god or when he says..

"He was like like fucking martial artists out there like again jumping off of flips and shit and doing all this crazy stuff and none of that was earned like it was just a. Oh yeah he can just arrive this. He can just keep going after like do i wanna see him. First of all like just be running away like a normal person would be in not trying to get not being in any of these spots but like not surviving them being more beat up and he wasn't he was just surviving all these insane things and like i think at the end of the day for beckett. It's not a movie. I would recommend anyone. But i think there are ways to kill a few hours right. Like there's there's movies out there. Rick a significantly bigger waste of your time and i do think there's some things in your debt redeemable but like it comes down to like you were saying the start. It's not thrilling. it's repetitive it. Just it really violates that spirit of the suspension of disbelief or whatever you wanna call it where it just turns into that superhero character in that really pissed me off the wrong way. Yeah and you know. I look it just is overall against as a whole product. It's it's just died like exciting. Ano- i mean maybe that's not what you want. Maybe the maybe the vibe of the set on beautiful location sort of like a thriller movie is is something new. But i just found. I found myself just kind of bored like throughout it. But i also didn't find myself by more watch some of these other movies like rolling my eyes and saying this is stupid even with him getting beat up like i still think it fit in whose we've seen it so many times throughout all the movies we've ever washed just like yeah. Like main characters tend to get into sticky situations. They would normally survive. If this wasn't a movie so i didn't take any points away from that..

"Of You know relationship bear will maybe a little interesting but i think that would have been a lot more cliche so i don't really know i don't really i guess like i like the overall like setting and i i liked the you know the embassy stuff behind the scenes and i liked the political faction. What was the name of the the political group that they had the right wing one. There's like the greek nationalist versus the left wing. Yeah there was a name to it. I forget i mean. I thought that stuff was interesting in it. Just the movie didn't really seem to live up to. I think i don't know like what could we could have done. The movie's called beckett. It's about beckett right if you would have gotten back and then it would just be like would have been like. You'll be boyd holbrook sitting in office talking about like you know. Whatever he's doing there in that part of the world wouldn't be beckett you had to have the beckett in there that's what makes back beckett is having beckett. Yeah they are actually fuck. I wish i didn't have full up. They had former named for beckett like they changed the name of the movie. Last osmond is looking at the wicky. It was like harder yet. Borderie murdered which is like a shitty james bond title but like would have made no sense in this case barnaby murdered. No one was hurt. Yeah yeah the guy. In the context of that would does that name imply like manslaughter. I guess for for candor but like who was born to be murdered in this case the kid like the the the redhead kid he wasn't even he wasn't murdered. But i thought that like i don't i have no idea. But i'm looking at the reviews. Npr said beckett is perfectly average chase thriller which i think is a perfect way. I think is a perfect way to just headline this movie. because you're not using any like outlandish hyperbole about talking about it. It is perfectly Average it's very relaxing. Thrill her which is again that that goes against every effort that you should have as a throw a movie. You shouldn't wanna be order relaxed or anything is repetitive. it should be consistently keeping you refresh. i guess we can just move into stuff that we didn't like to just because like you lead into a lot of bad negative thoughts for the louis were in that like i think that the thriller payoffs with beckett isn't very strong like it feels like they had the half the first half of what could have been a good thriller and just couldn't find a way to neatly wrap it up and instead get beckett who.

"Saw back. It taught me something about myself and most of these movies. It doesn't really matter what's the plot is. The trek out of turn forty called the macguffin is the thing that everybody in the film cared about. But nobody outside of the cares about but with beckett. It's like over and over again. You're reminded that he doesn't know what's happening. He doesn't really care what's happening. All he knows people are trying to kill him so now. Let's endurance test where you know it's like watching you know. One of those survival shows like hawaii or something. We're watching somebody starved to death for twenty days. And it's like you're just watching the sort of like series of like. Oh he's got a splinter. Oh that's infected man that wolverine just to hunk out. You know that's what you're watching and there's some kind of perverse satisfaction about that. Maybe there's something you know. I i think a lot of people call these like forgiveness movies. I love that column guilty pleasures. You know for me. I'm like nokia holt. Now gives you pleasure. Just lean into it. And you know i really love slasher movies and you can be the worst slasher movie ever and i'm still gonna take something from it. It's true it's true. I do and ask about one more thing. Where are you coming down right now. John david washington. 'cause obviously there's been a sort of a john david. Washington is going to be a big thing movement. Whether it's you know started sort of around black clansmen and built through tenet which obviously the release of that got a little bit mixed up. But because he's in basically everything in this movie. He is like the center of this movie. And i like him in it but i don't know if he's doing that much. What do you think could. Fortunately he really is effective as an everyman. because sort of a slubby sort of dad bod every guy. It's not memorable for me. I i really think he's only really been great and black clansman but even there. He's just because he's a blends into the background and you know there's something fascinating to talk about with. This film is like you know. Usually these are white characters right. That are the wrong man that the henry fonda or whatever the cary grant what happens when it's a black band in greece in twenty fifty and trying to blend again that's sort of fed into like the ridiculousness of it for me a little bit like he's like pulling up this caller on on the train and try to try to look inconspicuous. He is the only only black person on the train. Certainly the only black person in a cast a lot of the time when he was trying to blend swollen and bleeding he spends you know a quarter of his run in a bloody shirt. I think it's just it's spared no expense. It has the best crew. It's unbelievable it has the best cinematographer working one of them right now. I'm going to put your his name. Used from thailand. The sambu muqtada prom. They got the great japanese musician and composer Sakamoto ritchie sakamoto. These are class. Act the really really good. The movie looks great and the scores. Great and the got the kinder- john david washington that he creeps. Who seems to be in everything now to all they spared no expense and all it is just really empty ridiculous forgiveness movie there and it seems like there's a lot of these now right they come out and it's just available it's just there it is and i'm going to spend a couple of hours here in may i may be doing. The dishes may be folding laundry. I may maybe working on another project or looking at us phone. It doesn't matter and as soon as you begin to push pins in it deflates. There's no part of the plot the whole together and we haven't even mentioned yet. The director here is ferdinando. Cheeto feel marino a who was the second unit director on. Call me by your name. So he you know he comes. With some connections has one previous feature called antonia but this is english language feature debut. And i think it's a cool looking movie like i in some ways. I wish there as you're saying in some. I wish there were more going on now. I do want to ask you. I have heard some intel that you brought a clip of the movie of. I'm assuming your favorite part of just being a jerk now but it's like this is so ridiculous. The first part of this movie is just the two of these amazingly beautiful people. Travelling around greece funding little air. Bnp's it's like so over the top lovey-dovey it's like sort of for me. The equivalent of that guy to warm movie that tells us buddy in a foxhole about his sweetheart back home and built a farm and then you know someone's dying here this is not going to be or she's going to be a spy. Wouldn't that be better cooler movie anyway. So this is from early on in an abandoned cafe when they're just sort of making dalai's at each other. I'm having a love tech. Currently those you see from check with yeah see. I think he he can almost make that work. But that's only because it's him not many people on the sweet green planet could make that line work. I'm afraid it's just. It's really not their fault. That's what i'm saying. You know. And i think very long answer to your question by john david as i think the jury may still be out on him and you know just based on who he is. He's going to get some more chances but he's he's got to pull it out. And you know between malcolm and this antenna being a little bit wobbly.

"Colorado is writer and film critic. Walter chow. welcome back walter. Feeling the love attack today. Linda let me give you the setup. I right so for people who are familiar with this movie. The setup is not that complicated beckett and his girlfriend who is played briefly. We should say by la. Candor are in greece looking at beautiful things. They're eating great food. They get into a car accident and after the accident once he gets out of the hospital he finds that mysterious people are chasing him. They're shooting at him and in increasingly bad and bloody shape. He tries to make his way toward athens to the. Us embassy where he believes he will find safety. How realistic expectation is well. That remains to be seen john. David washington is in just about every frame of this film as he runs and jumps and hides and bleeds and hides in a car trunk and avoids a bunch of hives of bees. a lot. there's and you get a call through to the embassy or the consulate these. We've seen you. Us the us embassy walter by the time people here this episode. The reviews of this film are going to be out. Most of them have not been especially particularly kind. I will get into how i managed to broker show into covering this movie in fact but how did you react to beckett. Oh i thought it was a lot like nineteen seventies paranoia thrillers right three days of the condor and parallel view. Especially are the ones that. I was thinking of like those movies. Except it's not good. You could see clearly what they were going. What they really wanted to do was the wrong man sort of thing. The the idea that there's a vast international conspiracy of which we can know very little or nothing about and trust no one and all of those things in the seventies. There was a real purpose behind it. There's a real innocence lost. I think for us as a generation. Then we're watching watergate on television and then rejoined the theaters and we're watching parallel view and all the president's men and great allen peculiar thrillers but now this is said i think you read the twenty fifteen because there's a long searching shot of president obama on the wall of the american embassy. Subtle time stamp. I've ever seen so. I think it set during the greek bailout referendum. Which i don't think is on the tip of the tongue of anybody's like paranoia meter to mix metaphors unforgivably. But i don't think it has any relevance. I don't think he's be means anything. So ultimately all it is to your point watching john david washington getting beat up and say that he avoids is. He doesn't really avoid them now. It's at the end of that. I think is his superpower if there is one because he's not a green beret. He's not a secret soldier. he's not one of this is not a liam niessen movie right at the end of it i think his superpowers as ability to take punishment. I mean he's he's shot. He stabbed repeatedly falls stairs. Falls off the side of a mountain is spoiler alert. I guess but he he gets right. It's sort of just kinda funny to watch a sport. you know. Watch him and he checks himself out of the hospital and he's immediately running up the side of the mountain. You know what. I haven't seen the inside of a hospital maybe ever. I still can't run up the side of the mountain. I don't know what kind of training john david washington true. I think he gets. You different like mostly harmless gunshot. I mean how many livers does a person need. So here's what happened like. This movie was coming out on netflix. I was sort of curious about it. I have liked. John david washington in some things and so i was like sure i'll check it out and i am like the one person who watched this movie and i was like yay and it wasn't like a critical yesterday. It was like a visceral way. I realized that this movie for me is a really interesting study. Like what kind of a movie are you a sucker for. Even if it's not very good. And i realized i'm a sucker for these kind of you. Know person is increasingly in various dire straits and they keep coming up with new things to do to him. There's a part where you know. He's fallen down the mountain so it seems like he's probably got a broken leg or broken ankle or something like that. he's been shot already various things. He makes his way onto a train because he's going to the embassy and then through a variety of happenings he winds up being handcuffed in flex cuffs. Then now he's running around in flex cuffs and there's something about it. That just made me laugh so much in the same way that i laugh when in fast and furious when like a car flies from building into another building and i just go yes okay. That's how i felt about this movie every time. They did a new thing to him not to watch him suffer. But just because you're there stacking up all the stuff that has he has to deal with. I will say the underlying story of what actually is going on. I did not care about at all the more they talked about it. The less i cared about the movie. I also think the last like fifteen minutes of this or so go completely zoo not in the good way. I felt like okay. Now you're losing me. You gotta end this movie. Because now i'm confused. I don't understand anything that's going on anymore. It's a profoundly stupid movie eventually. the flex cliffs what. You didn't mention about the cops. Is that one end of the cups over. A cast is a cash his arm like how does that even work. A cast is like a two. Is this effective so none of this would matter right. None of these little things were if the rest of the thing was compelling to me if it punched my buttons the same way at punched yours right and you know for me. I was just constantly distracted by the analog for this film is maybe something like north by northwest where there's like this increasingly escalating series of events and set pieces and things and you know got movie is so remarkably tight and beautifully done that. It doesn't actually matter that not a lot of it. Makes that much sense. You don't think about that 'til after right like you know is the best way to kill somebody in a cornfield. Flying over them in crop-duster well of course not that's ridiculous but in the moment it's awesome makes sense of the world indeed that movie for whatever reason cary grant a blue sue even receipt and readdress that really pushes my buttons. And so i get it. Yeah it's a lot easier to understand north by northwest pushing your buttons. Then becket's did make me think about like that. A lot of us have like a forgiveness genre. Where you show me this kind of movie. And i'm very forgiving. It doesn't mean. I don't know the difference between if it's good or not good but like i am fairly forgiving for some people. Those are like horror certain kinds of horror movies for some people there certain kinds of monster movies for some people. There certain kinds of romantic comedies. And for me if you'd sat me down and said what are your forgiveness genres. I don't think i would have identified this kind of you know like you said wrong man kind of thriller but i do love all those paranoid thrillers that you were talking about. I do love those kind of i. Sometimes call movies like that trenchcoat thrillers. Like the ones where. There's always like a guy in a trenchcoat and fedora. Who's the actual most medicine person in the movie. So i don't know if. I knew that this was that john refer me until i.

"Built for business john. David washington can't outrun the tedium of net flicks thriller beckett by stephanie's historic. There is no sadder genre than the tedious thriller a movie that works hard to entice us with suspense. Rough-and-tumble action. may be even alluring locales only to fizzle out far from the finish line beckett's directed by ferdinando saito marino and starring. John david washington starts out promisingly. Enough washington plays the beckett of the title on ordinary american on holiday in greece with his girlfriend april played by alicia via candor. The to have escaped bustling athens for the soothing rust assessment of the countryside. They booked a room at an end and their late getting their driving on a twisty road at night. Beckett falls asleep at the wheel their vehicle veers off the road and smashes through the wall of a small cottage beckett comes to injured and bloody although the police at first seem inclined to help it's not long before beckett realizes he's there pray for no discernible reason from their beckett written by kevin rice from a story by fil marino is Swerve e tale of paranoia and befuddled went back. It has no idea why the cops are so interested in shooting him dead. They also happen to be very good at finding him wherever he runs possibly because his is just about the only black face on the local landscape a bleakly humorous detail when quizzing a bystander. One of becket's pursuers describes him as a black guy which in this case totally narrows it down through it all becket jumps off many clips tumbles down ravines and runs and runs and runs. One arm hangs in a sling. He's shot several times. The bullets zing right through. Luckily but you know it still hurts like hack anyone who tries to help him including a gaunt local hunter and a duo of sweet anxious beekeepers ends up being bullied or worse though. At least the worst happens offscreen by the cops. Also one speaks much english and the characters lines aren't subtitled an interesting choice. That drives home beckett's feelings of helplessness and alienation but the novelty of watching washington's beckett run and run even as he's hampered by obvious pain wears thin pretty quickly the plot hinges on a sliver of political intrigue involving an activist played by vicki cripes of phantom thread fame. That doesn't really justify. All these weird goings on washington pours a lot into this performance. He's especially good in the movies early scenes with candor where the camera catches him gazing at her with love lovesick tenderness but even if washington is ready to be a star after being so terrific in spike lee's black clansmen and helping to anchor christopher nolan's ill-fated tenant beckett is just a pitstop stop on that road because you can't outrun and audience's boredom in the end it always catches up.

Hisham Matar Reads Colm Tibn

"Heike sean lowe deborah so the last time that we were doing this together we talked about shakespeare's memory by bore. His one minus one is a very different story a very different kind of story. What draws you to it. Well story. I love but it's also. I wanted to choose a story that i had read in the magazine and remember vividly the the encounter with us and it just affected me very very deeply and a for how simple it is. It is in very subtle ways. It's about such complex things. And i think for that reason over the years since i read it occasionally fought back on it and found more and more layers than us with the stories about a man from ireland living in the us who returns home As his mother is dying. And you've also written in fiction and nonfiction about exile about the loss of a parent about estrangement. There's something in the subject matter that speaks to you or is it more in the writing. Come tobin does that very well in his work at something that he manages to open up. That's space of ruthlessness that has touched very very much. So i'm sure. I'm sure there's a connection. I also have a very slightly embarrassing our relationship to ireland and to irish literature that i think has made me susceptible to us. Don't be embarrassed embarrassing. Because when i was seventeen years old i had come under the influence of all these great irish writers felt so drunk by their brilliance beckett's and enjoys keats and and i thought this is got to be a magical place having never been to ireland knowing nothing about ireland except those writers and i made a promise to myself seventy that where i go to ireland. Must kiss the ground. And i'm not fond of kissing the ground general for that reason to stay true to by seventeen year old self. I never went to ireland. I avoid until. I was shortlisted for a prize. My first book and the price was being judged by a writer that i admire took. Healy passed away a few years back and the mc for the prize was going to be calm toibin. So i thought. I can't miss that i must go and And it was magical but to negotiates kissing the ground. When i got off the airplane. I pretended as though i was betting tiber shoelace and kissed my finger and touch the ground. I thought that's a good compromise. But you know from that trip. Really a group of irish rises dirk mitch and roddy doyle and a few other writers of took me really embraced me and made me feel very welcome and i had such a natural connection and correspondence with them that has stretched for a long time to to this day. And i think it's got to be connected in part at least to some of the experiences that irish writers have gone through sadly whether it's censorship or exile and so they felt they felt very close to me an uber reading these irish writers. Seventeen year old. You were in egypt. I was in cairo My family had left libya but seven years before then and certainly for me. Then there were the most powerful reading experience. If you want to call it does in the english language. Partly because of what i was into but also i think because of what we're

"We've got a very inexpensive wine. The vonda e. v. a. n. t. a. mullebeck twenty nineteen from mendoza argentina. It's from all d. And of course it sells for four dollars and forty nine cents four fifty. They found a way to get a penny under that much. So there you go so it's very cheap wine ma back from mendoza's good. I mean they have a ton of mullebeck rape. There's been years all over the place. You're doing a young lines. Twenty nine thousand nine vintage those wines are plentiful. Those grapes are plentiful so to get a good wine from there isn't unexpected. This puts this wine in at four forty nine this puts in this in the two buck. Chuck charles shaw category. Because he got to pay importer and they got to ship it up margin tina to plug chuck house. We central coast california. It's a little bit. There's some cost associated there that are savings so so i didn't know what to expect with it and it's actually pretty good. It's not a complicated one. What what you get is what you get up bra. It's all the way through the wine put. It's not bad taste is pretty good. It's got some toasty vanilla oak things going on which is which is oak barrel flavoring and at four dollars and forty nine cents. I doubt if they entry used barrels they are kind of expensive. And there's no room in poor forty nine wind for that and there's other ways you can get oak flavoring in and at four for you. Don't care been whatever way they used to get that labor there. It's much appreciate emmett. Take a sip. It's kinda smooth. It's scannel medium bodied. it's got really rich. Black cherry flavor scott. Some black pepper's sop spice.

It's four forty nine people in europe place where they drink wine bottle wine with their every meal every lunch. Dinner only moved a couple of euros for those those wives.

How Sports Trading Cards Went from Hobby to Asset Class

"So dan. i want you to help. Explain exactly how wild this year has been for sports cards with an example and that example that sticks out to me and shocks me every time i consider it. Is this record setting. Mike trout card. Can you tell me a little bit about the card itself. So it's a it's a two thousand nine bowman chrome super factor dan. Hey ducky is a writer and researcher for espn and a card collector. Himself it's got autograph on a autograph on grated. Basically there are three companies professionals Authenticator beckett s g c they grade. How perfect on a scale of one to ten a. Carter's so this might trump card is a nine so it's pretty. It's pretty close to perfect but the autograph is greeted at ten. So it's really close to perfect card can awesome. It's a trap route card also on top of that. It's a one of one so there is only one of these in existence yet. It's so interesting because mike trout in public is like a semi anonymous celebrity like a lot of fans casual fans and sports. Even don't really know him. But this card this one of one card with the perfect autograph. What did actually go for went for nine. hundred million. A new record has been set for the most valuable baseball card in history. Somebody paid three point. Nine million dollars for this mike trout rookie card. I know that when joe maddon was confronted with the information that he had a player who's card solta that much giving like. How much does the mona lisa goes for. Wow i'm into art. That puts him right up there with the mona. lisa's self. For what what is anything by a davinci or wow that is. That's that's pretty. That's pretty phenomenal. And it's actually. It's like yeah. I mean that's disappear question. And what was the previous record holder in terms of the most valuable card that had ever been sold at auction. The previous holy grail. Was you know the the honus wagner keys who six said turn of the century the twentieth century like early nineteen hundreds heart on. It's such a lower behind it. That's not happening with mike trump there. There's no incredible backstory to have his card exists. It's it's modern. It's not easy to obtain but it's not it's not like tobacco card that was pulled from from production really what happened to wagner was once thought is that wagner didn't like that he was being used his likeness is being used to sell tobacco the kids so he objected a pulled the card from production and that was that the other less known school of thought is that wagner he wouldn't be compensated for his likeness so he objected because he wouldn't be paid and the facts the truth which is a i like this story better it would be the like the earliest flexing of brand autonomy. It is remarkable what you say though the difference between his honus wagner card which does like looking at it. I'm looking at it right now on my screen. It's like this historical american artifacts that reminds me of like a daguerreotype from like the civil war or something it looks important and ancient and the trout card. The fact that this object can be worth more than any other thing that came before in modern times and the guy who sold this. Mike trout card dan for this terrifyingly large amount is a man named ken golden. So tell me a little bit more about him. What's the business that guy runs. Golden is ken. Golden golden auctions diammonium. Sins loan out nike sneaker. How much does that they work can in your eyes to me. It's definitely a six-figure iconic piece it is the most famous pair of sneakers in the world. Then he remains arguably the most renowned auction house for remember billion sports

Bang three a craziness there. Obviously just mitt that there was really no time to reporter Record a podcast. Even before christmas was just too hectic so We're recording this on saturday. The twenty seventh just a couple days left in twenty twenty. Goodbye rents But we've got a lot of cool things to talk about today. I kinda wanna wrap up all the stuff that we've missed as it's been nine days since our last pockets. No i'm sorry that's not even right. That is fuzzy. Math is been eleven days since our last podcast. So we've got a few things to go over That have popped off. Since then. And i wanna kinda look look forward to sometime this week. Mean jordan are going to get together and kind of talk about What games we really loud from.

That will be unfortunately lost in the in the way. So we're going to record that sometime this week and In lieu of any news breaking. I may just make that part of the normal podcast unsure on that. But let's get into it. I hope you guys had a wonderful christmas holiday I didn't have any games that i particularly wanted that. We're already out. So i just kind of asked Asked the parents for Email confirmation that beginning Today risa to when it comes out on january twenty six that was cool and i did end up much too. Many of your delight. Hopefully i'm finally going to take a dive into these series. I picked up. Yee's eight for only twenty dollars on the ps story. I could not refuse as the physical version just refuses to ever go down in price so i figured this was by far the best opportunity. Get in on. What many consider to be a very very good. Jr pg and at some point. I'll be playing. It don't really know when that's going to be but that's enough rambling We did have fell. Calm day Twenty twenty winter addition and we got a few tidbits of information about the new legend of heroes. Toddle kiro no koseki if you notice the thumbnail for this Podcast are the two newest main characters is a third as well but these They dig use some high-rise resolution images of the to unsure why the third one was kind of like ashaari pow We'll get you later but still no names for these two characters but we do have a bit of information stuff. You see that image. There's a couple other on our facebook and twitter feed of those two characters while they are. I say have that trails feel to them. I do kind of agree with what president condo said last time that at mediate Glance they don't appear to be trails characters. And i believe that lies in the fact that they are from calvert So they're going to look a little bit different and we'll talk about that in just a little bit. These illustrations were drawn by katsumi. Nama and the other characters are from alcom. Like i said the character's names were not announced to this game is coming out sometime in twenty twenty one in japan so those were the images. There were some other ones as well. If you'd like to see all those. I did put up a slide show video on our youtube channel. So you can check those out if you don't feel like clicking through pictures of via the website here is what we do know and i will just read this to you as this is the about for the new age of heroes karoo new koseki beyond the blue sky ahead of flashing light a land. A dawning resides cuba. There's no spoilers going on in here. This is all preliminary stuff in the news story arc. So we don't have to worry about that type of stuff the ladder this latter half of the trails. There is about to begin. The setting moved to the calvert republic in two thousand and twenty one foul calm release. Legend heroes kernigan the latest entering the trail serious as its fortieth anniversary rumors of work. The calvert nation is a multi ethnic nation experiencing unprecedented economic growth. Brought about by post war reparations. In a corner of the capital of a huge nation were immigration issues bringing about political instability. Okay well maybe. There are some spoilers in here okay. let's just get to the best. I'm sorry i read that. And i didn't think about it until just now okay. The command style action time bow system. You didn't previous trails. Titles has been revamped and that's going to set up an from a couple people. Let's just see what they said. Seamlessly transitioned from action oriented field battles to turn based commands battle to turn based command battle systems while making use of the unique elements the sixth generation combat or meant would try to pronounce his last time. I'm not sure how it is x. I f. r. x. i. p. h. a. z. Feel in a ballots to evolve from the previous trails titles. Okay so what does that mean. I don't. I don't know i really don't know how to had say seamlessly transition from action oriented field battles to turn based command battle systems I i mean obviously there's a bit of an extra element when you strike the enemies on the field in order to go into the turn based battle i. I need to see this in action to really know what they're even beginning to talk about would just have to wait and see You will feature many elements you laws. It's setting including a topics system which enabled together until such topics by communicating with. Mpc's out towns tra- gate situations in your favor when you act as a spray gun and that is the The character it's basically a detective. But they're calling them spring and alignment flame system. In which characters three alignments great and chaotic fluctuate depending on your own style influencing various status allies and adversaries and even scenario developments please look forward to allege heroes lowest entrance toasters depicted enrich expression by thumbs new original ingen. So that's that's pretty cool Here's what how they set up the situation and I get. I don't wanna get too much into this. The to emit the two people that you see in the image the one is the one call the speaker those are they say sometimes detective somedays negotiators and other days as bounty hunters. They're up for any job from any client. That's pretty cool And then the other one is Say to be a school girl wearing uniform. Prestigious school visits a rundown building located in old town in cowards capital. So that's the setting that's beginning of it. You can check out those images. Like i said there's a third character in the images as well with the two swords on his back and some long hair but we don't have any details. There is a battle scene that shows what looks like to be a craft or an art powering up but that from that snippet it does look to be turn based. So don't i'm so confused as to what to make. But i'm certainly excited about this one. But the lack of details and the promise of something new is leading to some question marks popping up. And i don't necessarily love that idea but it is what it is and until we learn a little bit more. It's just going to be speculation Unfortunately though that wasn't the only bit of information. And i'm sure we'll have a bunch more but Foul calm day twenty twenty winter. Also let us know about and this is not really affecting us as much. But they did. Say that a hatch marco koseki which is the one before this one and after cold steel four Clouded leopard entertainment will release a switch. Pc esteemed version of the game Sometime in summer. Twenty twenty one in japan in asia. I'm nearly positive. That's the same company that handled The transition for coastal three and four to the top of my head. So i came out for. Ps four in japan on august twenty seventh. So you know nearly a year later. They're talking summer to get that Switch pc version now. It handles the asian side of this and i s america handles the translation available. At least they have for the past two games In the cold still series in the west still no confirmation that that translation is ongoing. That have to assume that it is unless it's being handled by other parties I mean exceed did do the first two trills of cold steel games but at imagine that they are going to do this hedge amari as well and as soon as i hear something about that it will happen. It's certainly a good thing that this is happening and It could lead to a speedier at least for these games in the west. But like i said still no information on unfortunately. The last thing that they talked about was not briefly. Mentioned this last time the natto. noca- seki game. That is coming out in japan for For playstation four. This was the old Two thousand twelve least. Psp action rpg though some new details and images kinda showing the ps p version versus the Ps four version of it They're sent opposites gonna run at sixty frames per second on. Ps four with more vibrant graphics. Not being obviously these are things that you'd want to have updated from an old old system user interface options One thing that i thought was very interesting. And i'm not to say what they say. This game is not connected to the trails game. However the main character's name is now utah herschel now you trails players especially cold. Steel will know towa. Her last name is hershal So what they're they say there's no connection but then there's a connection is the protagonist and a boy from that island who attends and academy in saint elise. Those aren't you know aren't names that i recognized the from the trails series so it is very very interesting and i would be would like to know what that connection is at kind of read through it. You can read through the tales. Like i said before i am lower on the percentage scale To say of this game was actually going to make it over here or not. I if i if you say your day is gonna come today out outs. Action say no but would just have to wait and see. The original game did not look super impressive.

Now you can check it out. There was originally came out. There was just a japanese version but the english version shows off of really cool voices that they've got for the game. They got some good voice.

The twenty eighth The other day actually. This was on christmas eve that this news broke New punchy released some new information screenshots for the game featuring and i hope i get these names right la haro aetna and flown Those were the original characters from the original the sky and they are saying that Basically once you beat the game you can Play a scenario with these original characters in it so kind of a you know. They're not in the main game this something post post content but the fact that they're in their would open the door to other characters popping up from other games as well. So that's a cool thing The world inside of an item. I m worlds have mended. Detailed in this article on worlds are divided into several fours slash layers and the items level increases with every four. That you clear says weapons become stronger as they level up. You can clear there either. Worlds to power them up once. An item is leveled up. You can get the same item at the same level from then on pretty cool feature of the sky series all these images i took input into a slide show. You can check that out on our youtube channel so you can dispatch companions into item worlds to research them. There's a new team attack system with up to ten characters in it. That's a pretty cool feature. New enemies were detailed There's a new horsemen. That's pretty crazy. So here's the Previous protagonist Oh here we go says not only will hear from. Our doctors appear the protagonist in heroines of the sky. Two three four and five will also appear in three d. The protagonist and heroines wilburs as downloadable content sometime after the launch of disguise six. So there's a from the sky to or i don't know in timika these pronunciations. I'm at risk of offending people. I understand how they're supposed to be pronounced So yeah they're gonna add them in there as as post content deal see. That's the type of thing. Like i would think you'd be okay with paying for because that's obviously not a part of disguise six. They are previous games characters in new content. So take how you feel about. Dlc that is that's one thing i think is is no k To do speaking of all those previous disguised characters they are all assembled in the rpg. Mobile game And we got news from bolt chain games that they will release worldwide the mobile version the sky arc in spring. Twenty twenty one Unless you're in these countries in the no fast if you are but we are a western primarily focused podcasts. So you're not going to get in china taiwan hong kong macau singapore malaysia or korea Sorry don't i don't know why maybe that is. Just it's gonna come out later. Maybe there's some rules preventing that From happening if we're interested in getting it on a closed beta for the game. They will have one for canada. Brazil australia and the philippines sometime in january so really happy to see this thing go worldwide. There was a global announced trailer for it This came back It came back in march of twenty nineteen in japan.

Right obviously gotta writes the point. Now they're really to bring this thing out worldwide As far as the gotcha game or not. I don't know if i recall. I think it was paid game.

All these games coming out here in the near future. I've got one last.

There's my heart says one thing amonte says another and there's different things to have to consider overall ought to make that final decision here real soon on what that What was looking forward to our thoughts here are coming out this week on.

Who Was Thomas Becket?

"Thomas becket yes okay. Born around eleven twenty and died in eleven seventy. he's also known as saint thomas of canterbury or Sometimes who refer to him as thomas a becket. Okay yeah anyway. So thomas becket. He is venerated as a saint and martyr by both the catholic church and the anglican church He engaged in conflict with henry. The second king of england over the rights and privileges of the church and at one point excommunicated the archbishop of york so tough rain away to france for a bit under the protection of king. Louis the seventh of france but then he returned in eleven seventy two england so henry second in england said something to the effect of like ugh. This guy is driving me. Four of his knights interpreted this as a command to go. Get rid of thomas becket So on december twenty ninth seventy reginald fitz ertz huge morville william to tracy and richard le breton showed up at canterbury cathedral. According to accounts left by the monk jer vase of canterbury and i witnessed named edward grim. The knights placed their weapons under a tree outside the cathedral and hid their chainmail armor on your cloaks before entering the cathedral to challenge becket priest the night. He's hold beckett. They were taking him to winchester england to give count of all of his actions and kind of like hold him accountable in front of people but becket refused so the four nights retrieved their weapons and rushed back inside the cathedral. Oh my god. I beckett proceeded to the main hall for evening prayers and the other monks tried to like themselves into different parts of the joe for get said to them. It is not right to make a fortress out of the house of prayer in order them to reopen the doors so the four nights wielding they're drawn swords ran into the room saying like thomas becket. He's a traitor. To the king the knights found beckett in his spot near the door of the monastic cloister the stairs into the crypt and the stairs leading up to the choir of the cathedral where the monks were all. They're like still saying their prayers. Like oh no right. There's just four guys having running in with okay upon seeing them becca. I am no traitor. And i'm ready to die so Edward grandma eyewitness. He wrote a very extensive account of exactly what happened. I will save you all the details. Let's just say that for nights wielding swords kill the priest in canterbury cathedral. That's terrible so soon. After his death the faithful throughout europe european venerating beckett as a murder in february eleven seventy three which was just a little more than two years after his death. He was canonized by pope. Alexander the third and so sure typically like canonization of saints takes lake decades. Yeah stuff happened so the fact that this happened so quickly was kind of saying that. This guy was a big deal. So related trivia. Facts about thomas becket. Geoffrey chaucer's the canterbury tales. Ninety two is set in a company of pilgrims on their way from southern to the shrine of saint. Thomas becket in canterbury cathedral. Okay never made that connection no me neither ever okay So the schreiner was built between eleven eighty and twelve twenty and up to one hundred thousand. Pilgrims would have visited the shrine every year for more than three hundred years. That's my gosh locked. Yes it was adorned in marble gold and jewels and murdered saints. Tombs was one of unparalleled splendor in fifteen thirty eight. during the reformation. The shrine was destroyed following the orders of henry. The eighth who definitely be talking about in a little bit more twenty. Twenty researchers digitally reconstructed the raised sanctuary and available to view on the beckett story online and we'll share linked to that because it's really interesting how they did that. They took This thing had been such a big deal for more than three hundred years. And then it was raised more than four hundred and fifty plus years ago at this point and so they took accounts that the pilgrims had made that other monks had made in in digitally recreated which is pretty up and also modern works based on the story of thomas becket include. Tes elliott's nineteen thirty. Five play murder in the cathedral later adapted the opera assassination cutter. Dry ill the brando pizza'd in nine hundred fifty eight. You did that. Can i tell you flawlessly Also nineteen fifty-nine play by John we called beckett which was made into a movie with the same title and paul. Webb's play four nights in nair's borough which was written in one thousand nine hundred nine which recounts the aftermath of the murder of thomas becket by the four nights who made the worst career choice in history. Yeah that's goes without saying well if you don't if all of these facts don't stick in your head. Look at the name k. e. t. the cane. His name is right in the middle. And if you look at it. It looks like four blades. Good the name so four blades. Stuck together by the four to killed him in canterbury. That's thomas becket.

Miami Marlins: Derek Jeter, Kim Ng make baseball history

"I want to start with What I mentioned in the update, and that is the hiring of Qiming as the new GM off the Miami Marlins. And just off the top before we get to the historical nature of this and what it means for North American professional sports, moving forward. Just it is interesting to me. You know? Inevitably, the Rockies and the Marlins will be linked. Both coming into the league together. Iraqis and Marlins or not rivals by any stretch of the imagination. It's certainly if you are Iraqis Fan and the Marlins do something good. And the Rockies. Don't You inevitably draw that line between each other. And for the longest time, even though the Miami the now Miami Marlins used to be Florida Marlins have been more successful or tasted Oldham. Its success more than the Iraqis have. For the most part, the Marlins have been one of the worst run organizations. In all of baseball. We all remember Jeffrey Loria. Would buy a championship. Did buy a championship. 97 When Edgar Renteria got that hit off of Jose Mesa and the world Syriza's Sold everybody off. Because the wage bill would have been too high. But through that, by selling off all those players, he ended up getting a lot of really talented young players. Josh Beckett, Juan Pierre Carl Pavano. And they We're able to go win a championship, and then they were all sold off. Couple of ownership changes later, a monstrosity of a stadium poor attendance. Fire sales seemingly every other year incomes Derek Jeter and we thought that it was going to be more of the same. How in the world Is Derek Jeter. Going to Be the And he's not He runs the Marlins that he has a money man behind him. That helped him get the deal done as much money is Derek Jeter has made throughout his career. He can't outright by a major league baseball team himself, so he has kind of a What Silent partner that kind of front him the money, But he's the face. He's the guy that is making all the decisions. And it's something that We really haven't seen too much. And North American pro sports. We've seen plenty become G m's even presidents. And I guess that might be Derek Jeter's technical title, but two Be The owner. Of a team like the true owner, not nine. Justin Timberlake buying Air Peyton Manning's wife, buying shares of the Memphis Grizzlies. Like it's his team. And then they promptly had a fire sale. After he took over. We thought, okay, same old Marlins. Quietly. They have become one of the more Progressive Four thinking which I guess are It basically means the same thing. Progressive four thinking. Competent. Organizations in baseball.

Chronic Cellars Pink Pedals 2018 Review

"Jay from cheap wine fighter.com. What's the third installment of our Halloween lines twenty-twenty series and this time we have thought we got here Lee grabbed the bottle and it is Chronic Cellars pink petals s a p e d a l s as in bicycle, and it is a Halloween line because off the label has a female skeleton nicely dressed or a bike rider. And running a pink bike with a basket in front and then the basket there is a skeleton dog not scary. But in the Halloween kind of Day of the Dead kind of thing going on their skeletons just white is not paid it but there we go and It's kind of funny because when I was looking to find wines for you know this series I found a red wine from Trader Joe's and a white wife and I think Chardonnay and now I found a rose a I picked wines with skeletons on it. So often that I didn't really leave a whole bunch for myself. I'm a reason why I pick that cuz my theory is that you actually can you know, like you can't choose a book by it's cover where you can choose a wine box label. Because a skeletal line is going to be a ripe Bowl juicy one, but adults, you know, it's for some reason it's it's aimed at certain likes they're one's a certain way like stir labels little off-kilter but wants an adult why we have here this is off. This is not a fluffy little light and Grizzly Rose a it's got its got some body to the palette. That's kind of a firm Sleek wine. The the other knows just feel subtle. But you know interesting it's got some flavors of them take a sip off. It's one of those wines that kind of grow on you as you as you drink it. You're at first you go. And then you kind of kind of get what's going on. There's there's green-apple. There's a cherry there is little creamy thing. Not sure where that's coming from dead leaves or whatever. It's got really good acidity. Let's the flavors unfold and plus it gets you reaching for your glass a little bit sooner than you normally would it off but it doesn't fight cuz sometimes you can get a little bit too much acid in these wines and this one doesn't have that. So what's up pretty nice little little wage. I mean, it's I think I found it for twelve. These are wines that are sold at Whole Foods. You find them a lot in supermarkets. You can find them in look wine shop, too. But they were the sons of the man who ran Peachy Canyon wines broke off on their own and started the just labeled back in the lake Palm two thousand and what happens when you get a hot one happens all the time. Is that the demand gross the point where you have to make more and more wine and to do that you need more money. So it means you have to go in debt to do that. And when you got a hot one, there's always someone there to watch throw a bunch of money at the label. You've already brought, you know up to where people are looking for and liking it. So it's like a choice do I go into debt off or do I take their money that I can think of a whole and I'm not sure that that's what they did. It's the Beckett Brothers, you know, I don't know what their mindset was, but I've seen it time and time again that people you know, all these big-name line Brands. They're all owned by somebody who didn't start them and a lot of them cuz they just had it, you know is either going to debt or take a huge amount of money and when you have that as a as a proposition to you people take the money. Two brothers who made The Chronic Cellars and were the sons of Peachy Canyon are now running Peachy Canyon again. So if you like Chronic Cellars start looking for a future Canon and this is a pretty decent wage even when it's not Halloween. This is a year-round Rose a it's got somebody it's 88% Syrah 12% red eyes. It's kind of a rhone-style the French know what they're doing with rozay and this kind of fouls that's from Paso Robles r a v a hundred percent from Paso Robles contracted thousands of Chronic Cellars doesn't have their own Vineyards, but that's okay. And that's it.

Character of God: A Cup of Wrath?

"Okay, here we are we are talking about. Anger. We're talking about God's. and. We're talking about exodus thirty, four versus six and seven were said to be slow to anger, and here in this conversation is like the previous conversations, Tim Tim. Hi And KRISTA accuracy. So Let's jump right in. We've just kind of been taking ground Tim you've been walking us through some of the revelations you've had studying God's anger and God's judgments I don't know if Chris you're Tim WanNa do a bit of a summary Or. If you want me to or do you WanNa just jump right in share I can go for it. Okay. So the first thing we talked about was that this is kind of an uncomfortable topic for a lottery. Reasons that anger is a difficult thing for us to understand in humans and also in God. So we talked about that. We talked about how God's anger God's judgment are not intertwined in the biblical story. So God gets angry without judging. Actually he shows acts of mercy the first time that he gets angry and then he judges often or brings justice without being angry we talked about how bringing judgement or justice is often a handing over to natural consequence or to. Zion that actually I started avoiding the word natural. Because that's just loaded with some modern concepts I actually struggling to find a good replacement word, but it's the logical outcome. Hands people over to the cause effects sequence that they have chosen. Started themselves something like that yes. Oh, we looked at the first occurrence of God's anger with. Moses. After he resists being God's Prophet five times and that's followed by an act of mercy. He just says, okay. Well, I'll send Aaron with you to help you out. We looked at the incident of the golden calf where God gets angry at the people and talked about how his Anger a lot of times is related to to his people not trusting him or or breaking the relationship with him. So a lot of times, his anger or his judgment occur in that context. So that tells us something about divine anchor consum- some red. Okay. Anything else good summary. So I think where we WANNA come from here then is just look at main portraits of God's anger in the Torah in the Prophets of Old Testament and then. After. That in the story of Jesus how Jesus Came as a as a prophet of good news in Israel. But also that comes with a warning of God's judgement, and then after that exploring God's anger in especially in the letters the Apostle Paul he he's got a pretty nuanced way of talking about it. So the Torah, the Prophets Jesus and then Paul that's the roadmap simple. So. Okay. So let's we already talked about the three first occurrences of God's anger. They're all in the book of Exodus when Moses Stubborn and resist. You just Kinda summarize Krista the second one is after Pharaoh and his army perish in the Red Sea. There's a poem that Moses Miriam Sang about it and they talk about how what happened to Pharaoh was instance of God's anger to bring barrels evil back on himself and then the story of the Golden Calf and we talked about that a fair amount in the last conversation I wanted kind of zero in on it as we start actually here and I've been reflecting on that last conversation then I think I have a few. Better ways to to say it what divine an anger means in the story of the Golden Calf. So God gets angry of Moses Beckett Exodus three. But as you said, he doesn't act in any kind of severe way. Does it at the burning Bush inside the burning Bush when you get to the people all of a sudden God is angry and he wants to destroy his people to to bring an end to them is what he says to Moses give me rest I want to bring an end to them and that is severe. John Every time. Read it. It makes you little allergic and uncomfortable. So here's a way to think about it. The whole narrative of the biblical story is got a point humans to be as representatives in the world they rebel they WANNA, get blessing by their own wisdom, and so they you know take from the Tree God, exiles them, and what they do is corrupt and ruin the land through violence and bloodshed flood. God appoints a new humanity noah, his wife and his family, and they go and repeat everything that Adam and eve and their kids did from the chapters genesis. So God tries this new strategy of investing in one particular family out of all the nations that's Abraham and so. Pretty much from Abraham four word God it's as if the more corrupt humans become, the more tightly got binds himself to one particular Human Family through these covenant promises and these Covenant Promises Create More Complexity for God's purpose not less 'cause. Now God's committing himself investing himself allowing certain people to be as representatives, but there are no better in fact, they're often worse than other people. So by the time you get to the Mount Sinai. God has married himself to a whole nation of people and we talked about this principle that I tend to get more emotionally stirred up by people the. More emotionally connected to this kind of a natural thing. So I think that's actually a really important dynamic 'cause the rest of the Old Testament. After Abraham is all about God's relationship to one family, and what you'll see is that God gets most angry in the all estimate at the people who are most close to him and I think that's important because that's actually part of the Messianic trajectory of the Old Testament. Story. Is that these people are selected from among the nations to get God's blessing but that also makes them more liable to God's justice than your average whatever ancient Babylonian something because God didn't rescue the Babylonians out of Egypt. So they're not as obligated to be faithful to him but when the people that he did rescue are not faithful to him it makes him more angry. This helps us at least begin to think about God's intense anger in the Old Testament is mostly directed to the people of Israel and the golden calf story is a good good example of that.

'Mr. 80 Percent,' An Intimate Portrayal Of Surviving Prostate Cancer

"We're talking about prostate cancer why we don't talk about it because of issues like incontinence, impotence, men's private parts, and so forth I'm joined by Boston Globe Mark Shanahan who is out with a new podcast Mr Eighty percent, which tells the very personal story about his own prostate cancer and a warning again to listeners, we are talking a very frankly about this disease about sexual function and so on and so forth, and so this might not be suitable for younger listeners. We just want to put that warning out there. mark I want to talk a little bit about how this diagnosis it didn't just affect you affected your loved ones too. So your audio, your daughter Julia was in junior high when you were first diagnosed. So I want to hear a little bit of the two of you talking in episode one of Mr Eighty percent. I think I just took it to like. Like he actually died I would basically lose my best friend. This is my daughter Julia she's in college. Now they say like we're not your best friend like where your parents by. Having. Cancer means you get a preview of what your kid might say at your funeral. You're the funniest person I've ever met I. Think one of the most supportive and hardworking people I've ever met and. I also think you one of the most intense people I've ever met and you have a very impressive career, and so I always like looked up to that and by impressive you mean I have talked to Bj. Novak. You took me to Taylor concert. She gave me her bracelet, right? So. So that's a cut from Mr Eighty percent I'm here with Mr, with Shanahan and mark that's really touching moment. But say a little more about that because you make this, you spend a lot of time in this podcast talking about. The effect that this has on your entire family, and by the way the way your wife stepped up in heroic ways and supported you and this is a huge theme about in this story. It's true Anthony that You know you just can't anticipate something like this and and again it's the nature of this disease that you know. This was something that as my surgeon says, at some point in the podcast, you know when you're when you're treating. Prostate cancer patient, you're really treating the couple. And So Michelle had a heavy lift Michelle, your wife correct. I should say right Michelle. My Wife. And she was Extraordinary and But so it's a learning process. For she and then in terms of our children. You well, I Beckett we would like to get back into the podcast but your son as fifty s fifteen year old boy now and You know we wanted him to say, well, we're going to have to talk about our penises and that was. He he just wasn't willing to go there. So again, it's it is. You know we say in the podcast that you get the cancer but everybody's life changes and you know I I don't think that unless you go through something like this, you can really appreciate what that means but I. Certainly do i WanNa talk a little bit about Get get you to talk a little bit about the course of treatment that you opted to follow. So so walk us through first of all the options that you had to consider. When you were first diagnosed well. So we want to also say that because prostate cancer. So slow growing and because many men who are diagnosed are much older I think that people should think very very carefully before embarking on any treatment that there is something called active surveillance, which means we watch it we pay attention to it. And but but. For Myself I was young I had two kids. I had forty years may be to live and. I had a gleason score, which is a score after they give you your biopsy and take a look at what's happening they grade basically of the severity of the intensity of your cancer in mind was seven. Out of ten that's considered to be intermediate I guess you know the options for me were to watch it to have surgery. Or to a radiate my prostate and. In, the end there have been enormous advances in the treatment of prostate cancer over just thirty years. If I had gotten prostate cancer fifty years ago. I. would be rough rough rough. And not just for me every man who had a prostatectomy which is surgical procedure to remove your prostate. before nine, hundred, eighty, two, left the hospital impotent every single Guy which is just incredible to me because nineteen eighty two is not that long ago. Right, it is incredible. So you went for the surgery but I did but that wasn't the end of your ordeal surgery. It turns out we learned didn't get all the cancer. So you had to go back and sign up for pretty radical course of hormone therapy, and this is really the most excruciating part of your journey to read into here about you describe it essentially as a kind of. Chemical. Castration. Well. Indeed and I don't just describe it that way. That's in fact what it is It removes the testosterone from your body and the reason that we do that is because it's the thing that feeds the cancer prostate cancer. Grows Thanks to to Saas thrown. So if you removed from your body to cells cancer cells week in some cases they die and then when they're at their weakest blast them with radiation. The problem is that when you take a testosterone out of a man's body it is a as you say excruciating I became a different person. ahead you know the the euphemism is mood swings. I didn't have mood swings had a I had tantrums and I will say that I was on the phone this morning, the guy who listened to the first three episodes of the podcast and. He. said, he'd never talked to anybody about his course blueprint and he was arrested he actually got arrested. Because a parking garage. because. He could he he got completely out of control. So it's scary. And and you know now as I sit here. There's you know at this surgery if if the prostate cancer should return, there is no surgery there is no radiation. Those are no longer alternatives. and. The prospect of more loop ron or any kind of hormone therapy is really terrifying

Costco beats quarterly revenue estimates

"Wild Wall Street. Escalating EC- economic fears dragging down the Dow or the nine hundred points. At one point. Were down quadruple digits. Again with a thousand points we did not finish on our low if you WANNA find any kind of silver lining. We did finish down nine sixty nine on the Dow. Now we've got earnings alert right now and one name that has probably more closely tied to the action on the retail side than the other night is Costco according Reagan Beckett. Hq with more their numbers. Reportings Abe Ryan so Costco beating on profit and revenue for the latest quarter comparable sales coming up nearly nine percent that's including gasoline which was also above analysts estimates. But I WANNA point out. That's for the whole quarter ending February sixteenth now. Costco also gave some comparable sales for the full month of February and they did note an uptick in the fourth week. The last week February associated with the corona virus and consumer purchasing so cost estimates that added that surge in purchasing added three percentage points to make it twelve point one percent for the monthly comp growth for the full company for the full month of February now. Cfo Richard Galanti. Just now giving more detail on the earnings call take a lesson getting deliveries daily. But it's still not enough given the increase levels of demand on certain key items. It's been a little crazy this past week. In terms of outside shopping frequency and sales levels and not only in the United States he also went on to talk about how they are going to have to do some limits. But it's kind of going to vary by store and by region giving shoutout to his team members for working through all that because it's a very evolving scenario. No Costco also said that. Their membership fees came in higher than what some estimates worth quarter e. Commerce sales grew more than twenty eight percent and the timing of the week later. Thanksgiving that actually helped bump up e commerce sales for the quarter by eleven percent. And that's with the outages that we reported around Thanksgiving and Black Friday. If you remember any of that ultimately the Thanksgiving timing still ended up helping prop up the total company's COMP sales again for the quarter by half a percent and they are staying strong sales here in this next quarter because of everything that's going on with the corona
