Parler Returns to the App Store
"After several major tech companies effectively blocked the social media app parlor earlier this year. It's now back in apple's app store and users are once again able to use their iphones to log in for more on this. I'm joined by our tech reporter. Sara adelman hey sarah thanks for joining me. My pleasure okay. So it's been a while since we've talked about parlor. Can you remind us what this platform is and why all these various tech platforms blocked parlor is a social media service. That bills itself as an unbiased free speech alternative to the more mainstream platforms like facebook and twitter. It has a lot looser. Policies content moderation and. It's attracted many high-profile conservative media personalities. Such as fox. News host sean hannity supporters of former president trump and even people who've been banned by other large social networks like the right Far-right talk show host. A conspiracy theorist alex jones and the reason parlor was taken down by the app store and google play and why amazon stopped providing cloud hosting services to it is because of the kind of content that appeared on parlour especially in the days leading up to the capitol hill riots. There were a lot of calls for violence and rhetoric. That just didn't fly with those companies rules. Okay so where has parlor ben since. Then what's been going on behind the scenes for parlor basically went dark. You couldn't get to it on the internet in terms like a website and you couldn't get to its apps in february resumed operations on websites and also on android devices. The company has a new web hosting service. So it's not using amazon anymore. It said that it's not planning to make an effort to get onto google. Play being that you can access the app through android versions of the platform. Anyway google does power the android operating system but that is distinct from google play. And so that's when it resumed in at that point they said they had about twenty million users up from fifty million prior to when it went dark and then since then parlor has been trying to regain access to apple's app store and that has happened now.
Fresh update on "ben" discussed on One Bills Live
"Berger has all day to throw In the Bill Stephens is going to show up. There's no doubt about that. And The question is, Do you guys think the bills have a chance of the Super Bowl? They injury free and you're free into the playoffs, because some moron Yeah, I think so. I mean, they stay healthy. They're on prime position and contend. I don't think there's any question about that. As a matter of fact, ESPN Dan Graziano, one of their NFL insiders picked the bills to win the Super Bowl over the Rams this year. Yeah, we're going to that says anything, but I think a lot of people believe they're gonna be right there. May 18th. Yeah, Bill's got a shot at it right, so and you're right. But I think the Pittsburgh game opening day and Jim said he's a Steelers fan and bills under which way he's leaning. I guess that nowhere is gonna be opening day, but he I think he's right. The Pittsburgh Stealers. Even on particular on opening day this year, it's all going to come down on Ben. You can say what you want about their running game is gonna be better. Whatever on all that. I think it's going to come down to Ben. How he plays early in the season. How kind of start they get off to? How long is that gonna last? Because last year it didn't Um, but I think he's right. If Ben Roethlisberger has plenty of time to throw of his offensive line over performs from what it looks like it will now and they can protect him. Yeah, I think Ben can really swing it. I'm not confident of that in week one with what looks like it's going to be for new offensive lineman. That's a big advantage. Buffalo. I'm sorry. Ben Roethlisberger is not going to have time to throw I agree with you that it is going to rest on his shoulders largely, but I think his shoulders are going to get pounded into the turf a lot with an offensive line that's gonna have four out of five guys in new spots. In 2021, as opposed to 2020. That is just not something you're gonna put together. In a training camp for an off season where it's Haman. Just like you wanted to in the first week of the season, so they got they got a big hill to climb with that offensive front and I just can't see it. Being in a place where it's working perfectly to allow Ben to do the things that he can still do to a certain extent, so advantage bills. As far as I'm concerned, we have to take a break here. And speaking of the Steelers. There was an interesting comment that Cameron Heyward made About their new rookie running back that defies all logic As to where offenses headed in this league going forward. We'll tell you what that's about. When we return here on one bills live. Presented by Kaleida Health, It's Buffalo Bills radio. Telling you GR sports radio 5 50 all sports all the time.

Fresh update on "ben" discussed on The Ben & Skin Show
"My dogs have almost gotten us into fights with neighbors. That's a good drop. My dogs will go outside in the backyard. It's cattle. Let him outside it 5:30 a.m., and they'll be out there barking up son of Sam style, and I'm like, Hey, you can't do that. You can't You can't let the dogs go, Dude, That's not cool. Do you mean bad neighbors come to our house and banging on our door? I said, Get your dog to be quiet, even though there's barking dogs everywhere. Ben and I have a really good Freddy doesn't live here anymore, But we used to record music with him is our buddy Reuben, and they always had a pack of dogs, and they had a big, gigantic backyard that backed up to like in cop. L backed up to like water. You go fishing it right and had this huge and so his wife Dusty's this real sweet like she loves all the dogs. She would let the dogs out and they would run out and bark and we would be up in room in the studio, the Reuben and he would lose his mind every time because he would have to go downstairs and get the dogs to shut up. The wife didn't care. It drove Reuben crazy. It's just like what Ben's talking about with him and cat don't have time to pay for something that's going to make my life force. Okay, but keep in mind there, Dude, that I've had the greatest snuggles with that dog ever. It's a pain in the ass, but it's also in the M v P that you're saying it's worth it now. It's not really worth it. But It's Zeke Lowe's work that I love Hendrix. It's temporary. You know these things. They're fleeting. There's times where it's special. Like I think Christine has just Ryder. Die. Old dogs are amazing. I think Katie would have to just really strain to find one redeeming quality about a dog and for people like me and Ben. It's like God, I love this dog ate this dog. God, I love this dog ate my dogs run outside. And that we live on a green belt. And so there's this little kind of wrought iron fence and they would bark and run down this trail and everyone who walks by and so they created this little this little trench on rains. It turns into a mud pit so they would run through the mud pit. So then I was like, Well, I'm gonna put landscaping here and somebody told me all that will keep the dogs out of it. Now the dogs just run over all the landscaping, and then they run in the house. My mom came over and all white one time and Barkley, my giant horse dog jumped up on her to say hello covered her and Paul prints and almost killed her. Knocked her over those dogs air. I mean, they're sweet dogs, but they're untrained and I've tried to train him and it just has not gone well. And Barkley the look the mid of mid sized dog. If you're not paying attention, he'll snatch food at your hand. Like a kid will be over our house there. Okay, okay, and they're not used to be in our house. Here's some sandwiches. All the kids have sandwiches. Barclay will just go get up on the table, Reach up and take a kid's old sandwich. See, we have that Same problem with Bill goes bust, asked Murray, but he's so little he can easily be denied. Like the second we turn our back. Bill's gonna go do that. But bills Lilly Betty thing, man so he can't really impose his will on scenarios. Barclays just big enough to sniff over a counter. Yeah, he could big. Well, I'm sorry. Rocco is Rocco can get it right? His mouth right up to the side. Barclay could just set his elbows on the on the campus here. Neither one of our dogs could get on the counter. They need a chair to run and jump on and then bounce up there. Rocco would need a chair to bounce up there. Barclay could just jump up there if you wanted to. Rocco, though, has been figuring out We have these big heavy chairs. Like stools around the kitchen island, and we have to scoot those up to the trash cabinet. So Rocco doesn't clawed open, but he's now figured out how to move the chair and then get to the trash. So he's using the chair anyway. So that's the first back story. You need to know the other side. Backstreet need to knows my marriage with cat like anybody who's been together as long as we've been together. You find yourselves in a marriage war and what that means is you love each other, but the little victories means so much. Like the little victories are just so glorious and, um So one of those wars that we have going is spending versus not spending. She's very frugal, and I'm not very frugal, and I think she's anti frugal to a fault, and she thinks or that I think she's approval to a fault and on the opposite and I'll put it to you like this. This comes into play. Because she will roll out like if there's food and it's leftovers. She'll roll it out until that stuff is molded up because he wants to save that money. And when she was growing up, her sweet mom had to raise her and her siblings by herself, and they were poor. And to her credit, they didn't know they had a great childhood. Her mom was awesome. But they would go eat like happy hour because they didn't know any better and they'd go have this great dinner and they need a happy hour free nachos and have a blast. Mom said. Let's see who could steal the most. Or take the most bags of toilet rolls of toilet paper on the way out, you know, but that was just how she grew up. And so She grew up to be very smart with her money and very frugal. I'm the other way around. And so all of that ties into all of these kids being at my house, an Army of kids Well, cat had found some frozen burger Patties that she really liked. I think she had him at Sam's..

"Do you know what that's from? Very upset about it. They are various me. Why did this? They are very expensive. Suitcases are out of control. You got to get him at the outlet mall highly recommended the last like Two or three times I've bought luggage. I went to the outlet Mall on Alan, and it's about half of whatever they roll out it Dillard's or Macy's or any of those spots. So this weekend, we had a good old fashioned family weekend got spent a lot of time with the kids. Had one of the kids to invite over as many friends as possible. One of our particularly one of our kids who's been cooped up playing video games for a long, long time. I told you, we took video games out of the house, hoping that everybody would kind of get back to a more normal lifestyle with Co. Vered in the state of things. It seems to be in a good state. And you know, uh, CDC saying, you don't have to wear masks every where have you been vaccinated and that's fantastic. It feels like we're fast tracking towards returning to normal. And so We just needed to kind of get back to normal. It can almost like Retrain one of our kids on just being social, Just like what It's like to invite kids to do things and get outside and run around and play and Since I took video games out of the house. It's been amazing just to see the way that it's impacted the family in such positive way. I'm not anti video games by it. I mean, I love him. But would certain people they can take over their lives and not not for all people, but we have one of those where it could be really problematic. If they just played too much and get consumed with it. You know, we had one of my sons was like if he wasn't playing, he was watching videos of other people playing and it's just like all he was doing. Nonstop. And so this weekend, we encouraged him to invite friends over. Goat swimming in the pool. Get out about do things that kids do go play Wiffle ball. They were out playing Wiffle ball behind her house. I mean, they were having a fantastic time. Now, before I get into what happened next, which made this segment worthy. You have to know some backstory. Those have listened to our show for a while will know these two particular backstory Nuggets. And I will give skin a chance to explain those nuggets skin where it comes to my dogs. Give everyone a scouting report on my dogs as you know it. Um, they are. I would say Is it fair to say they're rambunctious is that is that you feel like I'm going? Okay? In, You know, people that have more than one dog know that If you get a couple of dogs together, it becomes herd mentality and herd mentality very much then becomes like, you know, Lord of the flies or whatever. And so they're good sized dogs. So the bigger the dog, the more havoc it can cause in general, there's a correlation there. Um and also, I think Ben is probably not a quote unquote dog person. I'm not saying he's anti dog. But there's some people that like I think Christina's a dog person. I think the opposite of Kristina is Katie. And then I think somewhere in between Ben is a dog person based on the mood. He's in it the time which I think is also very much how I would describe myself. I love dogs. I've always had dogs my whole life. And if a dog is trained, I f with it. I'm dead. I'm like, All right, I'm in. Yeah, but if a dog is man, so my dogs have my there, uncoachable. They're untradeable. We've spent thousands of dollars to try to train him. We've got nowhere. And really, there's two of their golden doodles. One of is a medium sized. The other one is horse eyes. And the little one is the problem. And he we have this It's like a drawer. That the trash cans go in. But there it's not really a drawer size. It's like it pulls out and the whole trashcan. Is it in there, right? Not a trash compactor. Anything is just kind of the trash cans or a sliding cabinet sliding cabinet. Exactly. Well, if you were to come to my house, you'd be like, okay. This is very nicely decorated. I could kiss cats. Great. She chose wisely. It's very, very pretty. Very nice. Except if you get around that trash can in those cabinets. It looks like a Wolverine has tried to break into him because something has clawed at the paint and pulled would back And there's bite Marks like my little dog has figured out ways to break into those trash cans. And if you're not watching if you're not careful, That dog will get into the trash cans. Pull both trash bags out, dragged them to the living room and spread out each item one by one. Okay? It says if somebody wanted to come to my house, grab my trash bags and dump him out and spread them out. Just add insult to injury. It sucks so bad to come back to that to come home to that you walk in and that's how does that happen? You guys not? I mean, I'm sure my wife my wife tells me that you know rocks. He passed away a year ago, but my wife tells me in the first two years of Roxy's existence. I absolutely hated her. And I think that I blocked that out of my memory cause I don't remember that she I might write my wife's right on this. I'm sure whatever she tells me is accurate on this, but I blocked all that out of my memory, but the puppy stage, especially for big dogs. Is It just sucks so much, but, I mean, it's just a terrible thing to have to live through. It causes havoc in the house. Yeah, And I also think, Ben, this is true. I think dogs I think that your dog's sense that you and cat are not a unified front on I think cat is laws a fair when it comes to old dog activities. Yes, and I think you're like Damn it! I want this to stop in. The dog's like, okay. We have them divided. We can work them. We've got a plan here..

Are There Benefits to Adding Omega-3s to Your Supplement Stack?
"Think in a metabolical healthy scenario. You can consume high amount of a mega threes. even those fragile ones. Let's say fish oil and not be at risk of a high amount approximation but if you're inflamed tons of or excess. Uva you'd be b radiation or other forms of inflammation radiation and. It's it's it's hot oil or hasn't been treated properly or you're in a state of excess stress or high blood sugar. I think can do more harm than good to have like an omega three as part of your supplement stack interesting kind of depends on the scenario. Yeah but also. That's where. I mean demonizing omega threes and particularly fish. Oil is where i think sometimes. There's a disconnect between looking at like like spec speculating mechanistically and what we see from like outcome. Data randomized controlled trials. That will use omega three supplements as an intervention to for for whatever it may be whether it's to reduce triglycerides. We know that there's now a pharmaceutical available.

Max like you can say that. Theoretically consuming fish oil because it's fragile would lead to peroxidase in your bloodstream.

COVID Mask Guidelines From CDC Just Eased Up
"States across the US air lifting coronavirus mask mandates following new guidance from the CDC. A major turning point I can breathe again. I think that's fantastic. I think that's what everyone was waiting to hear the CDC saying fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks or practice social distancing indoors. In most places. I feel like a sense of freedom right now. I've already planned a mask burning party. So President Biden entering his Rose Garden briefing mask list, the White House confirming vaccinated staffers are no longer required to wear them A great milestone. Great day. Has been made possible. The extraordinary success we've had in vaccinated so many Americans so quickly on Capitol Hill. Some senators mid vote when the news came down, gleefully taking off their masks. But there are exceptions, the CDC saying fully vaccinated people should still wear masks in hospitals on Busses, trains, planes and if required by a state county employer or business in California. L. A County officials will not immediately follow the relaxed rules in Massachusetts. The mask mandate is staying in place for now. And there are still questions about what this means for places like schools, one of the nation's largest teachers unions planning to follow the guidance if everyone is vaccinated. In a classroom, Ben. It sounds like Everybody in that classroom could go massless, but you have to make sure everybody's vaccinated and you also have to make sure everybody's comfortable with it. The union representing retailing grocery store workers, saying in a statement it's confusing and fails to consider how it will impact essential workers who face frequent exposure to individuals who are not vaccinated and refused to wear masks. Kroger, the nation's second largest grocery chain, will continue to require everyone in their stores to wear a mask. Indoor mass mandates should go At some point, but not right away. We should just wait a little longer for more people to get vaccinated, also raising concerns news of a so called breakthrough outbreak among the New York Yankees at least eight fully vaccinated members, including Star shortstop Glaber Torrez testing

Long vacation. sources originally insisted they were spending time together as friends but now we can confirm because we are e and we know everybody. It's more than that now. In this photo you can see in the driver's seat and j.lo's looking a little serious probably because he's a bad driver and in another photo it almost looks like they were holding hands and getting on that ej. I saw these photos. And you got your your investigative dissect these what did you think. Okay so i said this yesterday. And i'm gonna stick by this.

So now we know why there were no photos of them while they were staying on his way. But i think to kind of just jump in your suv in the middle of the day under sunlight and get snapped
Why It’s Important To Flex in and Out of Ketosis
"Acidic toast this is really an ideal state however we don't wanna be in kito sus all the time and that's what you talk about in your book hito flex so let's talk about that. Yeah exactly so when we look at the our ancestors yes they all did. They didn't stick with kita long term whenever they had the opportunity when they came across honey or tubers or fruit they would eat that they didn't look at their tribe and say we don't eat. That were key they would eat that. So there's not one culture in the history of this world that stuck with the same diet long. It's nine hundred till the last fifty years or so that we have this new problem. People are sticking with the same foods in the same diet which were not designed to do. It doesn't create any kind of adaptation in the body and we know we create a change and we force adaptation. Good cells. get stronger and bad cells. don't adapt and that changes this for measles right this hermetic curve that we start to see benefits so key flex the reason i call kita flex is because we want to actually teach the body to burn fat and had that as your primal fuel source but not the only fuels for us. We wanna have times where we actually flex avocados inflex back in. And that's the premise behind the book. So i and. I've seen four major problems with those people who stay with keita long-term and people always ask me david. What is long term. I would say anything more than about six months. Strict could be considered long-term number one. I've seen fat loss actually slowed down. So if you wanna lose weight on kita which can be done. The body will want actually preserve that precious fuel source fat. The number one priority for the body is survival. You know if you've only been giving fat as fuel source it's gonna want to preserve that fuel source so i've seen weight loss and some of the results slowdown when you to regiment with it. A number two We know that the thyroid gland produces t four hormone which is that inactive forum that needs to be converted to t three which is the active form that has actually used by the cells. T. three is so important. That every single stock has the receptor site for the t. Three hormone in helps the cells produce. Energy helps you burn fat helps you feel good now. What helps make that. Conversion has actually insulin. So when you don't when you have chronically low levels of insulin from script ketosis end or too much. Fasting that conversion could become compromised. So those are a couple reasons why we want to actually flex in and out of
When Is the Right Time to Hire an Accountant?
"Guys so pumped to have michelle brown seen here today to inform us and to help us and to give some great advice when it comes to our finances to taxes to everything when it comes to making sure we have the right practices in place when it comes to our money and our business. Michelle want to kick off by saying you know many of our listeners. They're just getting started. The business side hustle. They're they're doing on the side with their full time job and many of them are wondering when is a good time to hire an accountant sales. That's a very personal decision. and one. That really depends on where you're at in your business cycle however. I think it can make a lot of sense even when you're first starting now with a separate side-hustle Separate from your fulltime job to sit down with an accountant and perhaps do just one or two our consultation to talk about. How should i be thinking about my additional income. Make sure your filing things correctly Doing so typically. After tax time is a good time to catch most accountants. It had to be really busy in the spring. And when you get to a point where your income from your side. Business is a fifty percent or more of your overall income. That's often when i'll see someone hire an accountant now for some individuals that's not the right level. They say my by dances and my taxes are getting too complicated long before they hit that fifty percent threshold and they end up hiring an accountant. Ben and others are very comfortable filing their own taxes and end up waiting a bit longer. So really comes down to personal preference And i think it's always a good idea to sit down with an accountant up even if it's just once a year for some good hygiene check and make sure that you're doing the right things when it comes to filing your taxes and treating your outside income meaning outside from your full time job appropriately when you go to file

Roles working on articles for magazines or working on book chapters or it is recording a podcast either being interviewed or interviewing someone from my own show so you know I'm a big believer in kind of cal Newport's idea of deep work and spend those four to five hours just immersed in awe on reactive work right like the e mails those get saved for the afternoon or early evening the reactive Hey ben can shoot a quick quick video for this or two minutes of this three minutes of that now all that stuff gets saved for later on the day 'cause that's easy to do even when you're cognitively fatigue you can respond and you can react but my time is my time from about nine so your Tan up until about one thirty or two nothing distracts me that's all deep worked on and do you take any kinds of supplements or brain enhancement tools at this point so I have my cup of coffee in the morning and in many cases that will have like some for significant mushroom extract in it like some some lion's mane or some chalk or something like that that sometimes I'll take a neutral pick like quality mind or quality of Focus typically to keep my appetite satiated go through that morning of work I am chewing gum sometimes it's nicotine gum often with sparkling water Zevia And so yeah they're usually there's some kind of stimulant kinda keeping me going in that time in addition my my office is just littered with all these pieces of biohacking equipment that I use working out so I'm standing on a grounding mad Inflammation while I'm at work I have light panels these red light infrared panels that kind of shine light on me while I'm working I've a walking treadmill you know a standing treadmill desk a little Allen's board I haven't kettle bell so I'm Kinda constantly moving at the office I mean technically even if I don't get a chance to work out during the day I'm taking like fifteen thousand subsidize just talking to people and moving around and doing things in my office and one thing I didn't mention by the way was when when I say in a smoothie for breakfast my smoothies are pretty damn excrete extravagant we're talking like bone broth Collagen a coconut milk meal of Stevia Sea Salts and blended all up like an ice cream texture second year with a spoon almost like an assignable and then I'll talk with like spiraling in Kerala and cacao nibs and coconut flakes and all these past epoch looking pretty good stuff in there and really the you know most of most of everything else I eat it's very almost like I'm discovers Paleo but it's almost like a bastardized version of the car of diet like so I eat a lot of a lot of organic wild meat I hunt so I have freezer full of meat that I've hunted and I also will order good organic meats one of my favorite companies hunt I hunt whitetail deer elk Turkey access deer tag and what are you what are you kill with and avoid oh you're not even using your now though I like the challenge of of spot in stock with a bow that seems amazing actually that got to be fairly old school and that's got to require a lot of technique I would think like I practice everyday practice shooting day when I'm at home with a bow and I travel with this little handheld device allows kind of practice on traveling without my if someone wanted to get into words would you call it archer is that grab it I wanted to get into archery how how about doing that My method was to visit my local beauchamp and sue visit with them to get fit by them to have a bowl built then I began to shoot in some archery competitions and also some hunting competitions called trained to hunt I went out hunting some people who kind of mentor me and guided me through my first hunts I subscribed to Peterson's bow hunting magazine there's a few good bow

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

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

"Sorry. Moving on Evan Ben. Why do you have a problem with men wearing minimal clothing? I e a grout arranger panties, most amount of homosexual. So there's that. Mostly, is there another part of the answer? I in general MFN of modesty. That's always it's both the, I'm not gay, so I don't really enjoy that. And also the also the generally in favour of modesty, but most of it is the, I don't really enjoy seeing men unclothed. So I would say it's mostly up. Neither do I, which makes it real hard to work with Knowles or it'd be married. Apparently. I mean, that's. Mainly mainly should've taken a picture though of Crowder in his shorts with Knowles in his boxers that he likes to one around the office in. It's like there's one creep at every company just set this place on firemen, and we have ours on fire. AVI says, hi, if someone were to travel back in time, fifteen to twenty years, what would he have to be like to be friends with younger Ben Shapiro? I know it wasn't really a friends person. It's always been more of a family person than a friend's person. Honestly, the thing that would have been interested. I always liked to have interesting conversations with people, so you'd actually have to be interested in things. My pet peeve is people who are boring because the truth is that when people this is Dennis Prager line, it's exactly right when people say they're bored with things, it's because they're boring, right? If you're interested in things and you find the world and interesting place and you are in wanna talk about ideas, then this is always true, and this is true of my friends. Now, all of my friends. Now we enjoyed talking about ideas. We don't really wanna minute lunch and people are talking about people. I'm really not all that interested in it. All right. Some these singer eight says I was listening to pod, save America. I don't know why a couple of weeks ago they mentioned how Oklahoma, that's my home state passed a massive tax cut that crippled the state's finances. How much of this is you know, honestly, I don't know the answer to that. I'd actually have to research that I haven't paid a lot of attention to Oklahoma because I don't live there, but it's, but I'll check that out and I'll get back on that one. All right.

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

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