"When he gets this command, Philip does not know what that purpose is. Understand, the command of verse 26 is all he got. Philip, I want you to leave this massive evangelistic revival going on up north here in Samaria, and you go down south to the lonely road from Jerusalem to Gaza, and it was not until Philip got there that he understood the purpose. So who did understand the purpose? God. It's his sovereign initiative to send Philip. Friends, this is something that we have to grasp from these kinds of stories in Scripture. Do you understand that your hearing of the gospel was not a coincidence to God? It is not something that just happened in the eyes of God. He is not some impotent God who takes a shotgun approach to spreading the gospel, desperately hoping if someone might hear. He is all powerful, and in his will, he can target the heart of those people who he's determined to save, even if it means sending one of his good evangelists down a deserted road through the middle of nowhere to do it. This mindset that some people have today of, you know, God sent Jesus to die for his sinners, and now God has done all he can do, is frankly in opposition to this story. As you read this, you are meant to understand that coincidence alone would not have brought the gospel to this man. In fact, while he's carrying with him the scroll of the prophet Isaiah, he's got the In fact, geographically, he's even getting further away from any hope of understanding as every minute goes by. Thus far in Acts, the gospel has traveled north out of Jerusalem. This is the first record we have of the gospel coming south out of Jerusalem. This man's on his way away from the gospel to be, you know, lost in the inner African continent unless God intervenes. And so God, in his sovereign initiative, sends the gospel to this man because he intends for him to believe and be saved. Verse 27 describes, it says he arose, that is, Philip arose and went, and behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, who had been in charge of all her treasure and had come up to Jerusalem for to worship. So Philip gets his command and Philip is obedient. We're going to see in a moment that salvation of a sinner includes the submissive willingness of a believer to share the gospel. Philip is submissive here even before he grasps God's purpose in the command. God says, go down that deserted road and Philip goes down the deserted road. It isn't until he gets there and he hears the wheels of a chariot rattling over ancient potholes and just audible over the sound of that chariot's wheels is this African accented voice of a strange man reading from the Old Testament prophet Isaiah. Now, as you read this, remember, Luke is unfolding this story so that we know some things about this man before Philip knew anything about him. Luke tells us about this man in the chariot before Philip even knows there is a chariot. This man is a eunuch, Luke tells us. It was common in that day for a slave to be castrated in the expectation that it would make him more docile and more trustworthy and so eunuchs would be used to keep royal harems or in the case of this man entrusted with the crown's treasure. Eunuchs were valuable as slaves because they're not going to get distracted by physical desires and obviously they're not going to be able to have a family that ends up occupying their time so you get that slave's undivided attention. That's a rotten life if you're a eunuch, right? No hope for children, no hope for family, no hope for a legacy of your own. Also, you should not think of Ethiopia here in terms of modern day Ethiopia. That time, Ethiopia was this massive nation that was located just south of Egypt. I don't want to make too much of this but in the Roman Empire and their writings, Ethiopia was known as the Nubian Empire and it was considered the edge of the known world and so as Jesus had said, you're going to take the gospel to the ends of the earth. Symbolically, in the Roman mind, this is where that's going to take place. The gospel is about to go to the edge of the world. The Ethiopian kingdom had a king but the real power was traditionally given to the queen mother who is Candace. That's not a proper name. That's a title given to her. And she has this slave who is a eunuch who is in charge of her royal treasury and this man had come to Jerusalem in order to worship but what I want you to understand is he would have hardly been allowed to worship when he got to Jerusalem. While it is likely that this man is a Hebrew by birth, as a eunuch, he would have been officially restricted from being able to go into the inner part of the temple. He could have come into the outer courtyard and he could have got up to that fence that you could stare over and watch other people bringing sacrifices and worshiping but it was very much a do not enter for him because eunuchs were not allowed. He would have been restricted from doing the exact thing he had come to Jerusalem to do. He would not have been able to engage in the truest form of worship and so he has left and it says in verse 28, he was returning, he was sitting in his chariot reading the prophet Isaiah. Now, this is kind of fun because in that day, all reading was done out loud. That was just the normal way they did it. Even reading alone, you would read out loud. This probably made crowded ancient libraries kind of a hectic place to try to study, right? But he was reading out loud because that's what they naturally did. So after visiting the temple, just watching others, on his way out of town, this eunuch might have stopped by the local religious bookstore and purchased himself a copy of the sacred scroll of Isaiah and was reading it out loud as he rode down the road. And it's that moment that Philip must have finally understood why God had sent him down this road. Because long before this eunuch learns the lesson about God from Philip, Philip learned a message from God through his use of this eunuch. As he was directed down the road and heard the eunuch reading Isaiah, the lesson that does not work through luck, coincidence, and fluke-y twists of fate, he works with a sovereign purpose to accomplish his will. God sent him down that road and he found down that road exactly what God had sent him for. Y'all, let's just worship God in this. Our God, what a wonderful God he is who takes a man and uses him to bring the gospel to large crowds in this big city and then takes the same man out of that city and sends him down a deserted road to proclaim the love of Christ to a single eunuch on his way out of Jerusalem. Whether for many or whether for only one sinner, the success of the gospel, successful evangelism relies on the sovereign initiative of God himself. It's God's divine plan to save this man. As shown by the Spirit's command in verse 29, the Spirit said to Philip, go near and join thyself to this chariot. Can I just put that in today's language for you? Philip, go get him. In fact, the word for join there is actually picturesque. It means to cleave or to clean, right? Philip, you go grab a hold of that chariot and do not let it go until I tell you. So first, successful evangelism relies on the sovereign initiative of God. Secondly, see that successful evangelism requires the submissive willingness of a believer. Verse 30 and 31, Philip ran thither to him and heard him read the prophet Isaiah and said, do you understand what you read? And he said, how can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. Philip ran thither to the chariot. Now, let's do a little word study on what that word run means. That means going a lot faster than walking. By the way, don't picture this as a, you know, one man chariot like Ben Hur riding around the arena or, you know, an Amish buggy. It's more something like a stagecoach or an old covered wagon. I don't know whether Philip had to chase this thing down from behind or rush down to the highway in order to get there and flag it down before the chariot passes by. But whichever it was, Philip did not delay in complying with the command of God. He obeyed with haste, right? He obeyed with enthusiasm. He followed God's command and ran down to the chariot. He also obeyed with some cleverness. We read at the end of verse 30 and we just think, you know, do you understand what you're reading? But there's actually this fun play on words in that phrase that you, actually you might hear it if you heard it in Greek, the original language. It is, and it's kind of clever. What it means literally is, do you know what you know? Do you understand what you're understanding? Like man, you get what the words mean, but do you understand the meaning of the word? Without so much as a who are you? Because this guy had just chased, the complete stranger just chased down his chariot and asked this question. The Ethiopian eunuch answers Philip by expressing exasperation. How could I possibly understand unless somebody guides me? Like man, you want to take a shot at it? Come up here and sit in the chariot instead of just jogging alongside.

"Have to keep them completely out of this treatment. I'm okay with this, but you can't sell it as a Michael Jordan. Yeah, I mean literally literally no face. I mean, you see him see his face. I mean, you see him, you see him, you know, he's talked about endlessly, obviously. He's talking to you and we see archival footage on the North Carolina basketball game. You know, obviously all of that. Beyond that, he's basically like Jesus in Ben Hur. You see glimpses of this saints walking among us. But from a very discreet acceptable distance, right? And this element of that that I think are kind of nonsense. And but again, like Argo, like athlete, I would have to say, you know, is that, you know, it's one of Affleck's other pretty good movies, like this one. There's kind of a straight ahead barreling quality that is, you know, he's kind of got a few things down as a director. And he hasn't made that many movies, but he's clearly he's clearly he started. He started well. And he's, you know, I don't know if he's ever going to get rid of the corn in his diet, you know? As a filmmaker, but I don't know, it's good enough for me in this case. It helps that you've got someone like Matt Damon, who can sell most moments with more than enough conviction for the average audience. And for me, certainly in this case. But the thing that Affleck does here that I think plays into what you said about maybe a little too much corn. And the thing that really did give it a sense of flimsiness, I think heard it. A choice they make that completely backfired is to really play up the 1980s Ness of it all. The soundtrack in particular. This is wall to wall hits of the day. Yeah, that's what the budget, that's where the budget went. That's where the budget wins. Right? Are they trying to make money later on selling this on Spotify or something? Every transition scene. Character introductions, background music in the car. Any chance they get and even moments that really shouldn't have it, they load it with, you know, you're going to hear sister Christian like you do in the trailer. You're going to hear all these songs that were popular from the time. Whether they really have anything to do with what's going on at that moment or not. It feels and maybe this was the point. Maybe this was the idea athletic had knowing he's got this very 80s movie that is really about this fundamental point in pop culture. It's more music video almost than film. And that shot you see everywhere and in the trailer, which I think only appears in the movie in the credits sequence for some reason. It's kind of random of Affleck as Phil knight. He's got the curly hair sitting at his desk and he's got that gaudy red and blue tracksuit on even gaudy sunglasses here. Yeah, and he's looking right at the camera. It just felt to me like that was an appropriate calling card for the movie. Because while there's some heart to it, and there is something substantive about what these characters achieve, it kind of felt like dress up too. Yeah, very much so. And I think maybe dressing down if you're looking at Affleck's this is just speculation, but and it's also snide speculation. But you have like the Affleck and Damon playing, let's say, marginally less photogenic actual people. I mean, when you look at when you look at when you look at the real Sonny Picard, when he's, you know, it makes a point of his weight. Yeah, yeah. And he didn't kind of flux the Italian test. And that's whatever. You can either fuss about that or not, but I mean, but tellingly there was an HBO film about vaccaro that was that was in development with James gandolfini playing the part and it didn't end up getting filmed. But that's more of the ballpark we're really in here. So it's kind of, it's sort of stretches and strains a bit to kind of get to kind of like figure out a little bit about how much how much fun you're going to have with these characters in this story. I don't really want to see it taken more seriously or treated as a more triumph of the marketing spirit or the human spirit or whatever spirit you're thinking it's triumphing and if anything, the bits I didn't like so much are when it did go absolutely all in on that stuff because it's kind of it's an embrace of capitalistic triumph that I'm not, I don't love at least without a little I mean that's the thing about Moneyball. It's funny, it's all about how little money can you actually pay your people and hold back and still get it. But that film has such great patience and restraint. And this film just get it out of the gate, boom, boom, boom, into the flying through it. You know, it's a pretty decent script and it's not treated for a grander experience than it is. But except for the treatment of Jordan, which did give me kind of a Jesus and Ben her. You know, overtone.

"Happy international women's day. Today's will mannequin brought her prowess in the pool to the silver screen. She was a star athlete and Olympic hopeful in her teenage years before becoming one of the biggest movie stars of her day. Please welcome Esther Williams. Esther Jane Williams was born in Inglewood, California on August 8th, 1921. She fell in love with swimming early in life. When she was just 8 years old, she worked as a towel girl at a local pool. The lifeguards their taught her how to swim the butterfly, a new stroke that only men swam at the time. Esther felt most in her element in the water. As a teenager, she joined the Los Angeles athletic club swim team. And when she wasn't in the pool, she was swimming nearby at Manhattan beach. At the 1939 national championships, Esther won three events. That earned her a spot on the 1940 United States Olympic team, but she would never get the chance to compete. World War II broke out and the 1940 Olympics were canceled. Her dreams dashed, Esther looked for a new position. She began modeling part time while attending Los Angeles city college. Soon she was asked to audition for Billy rose's aquacade. A music dance and swimming show at the San Francisco world's fair. And so, Esther traded in the breaststroke and freestyle. For underwater somersaults and arabesques. Esther's swimming abilities earned her the role of aqua bell number one. At one of her performances, she caught the attention of MGM executives. Esther was skeptical of the film industry, but MGM saw movie star potential in her skills and charm. They arranged a screen test for her opposite movie star Clark Gable. And in 1942, Esther made her film debut in Andy hardy's double life. Audiences went wild for her. She went on to star in bathing beauty when it came out, it was MGM's third highest grossing film behind Ben Hur and Gone with the Wind. Esther spent the next decade starring an increasingly lavish water themed musicals. She spent most of her scenes dancing improvised water ballets and pools, lakes, lagoons, and oceans. Some numbers were minimalist and romantic. Others were flamboyant, featuring flames, fountains shooting colorful water and dozens of synchronized swimmers diving and kicking their legs. MGM built a pool on the sound stage with underwater windows, special camera cranes and hydraulic lifts to capture the dance routines. It was 25 feet deep and cost $250,000. A huge amount of money to spend for a movie in the 1940s. While the performances looked effortless on screen, filming was a harrowing experience. Swimmer's nicknamed MGM's pool, pneumonia alley due to the bouts of sickness that would arise from long hours in the water. Esther ruptured her eardrum 7 times. And while filming $1 million mermaid, her head snapped back when swan diving in the water, and she spent the next 6 months in a cast. Oof. Esther also tried her hand at acting on dry land. In 1940 9s, take me out to the ball game, she starred opposite Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra. But her acting roles were less successful. Audiences preferred to see her in the pool. To the public, Esther was America's mermaid. To Esther being a famous aqua musical star was life's consolation prize for not getting to compete in the Olympics. She once estimated that she swam more than 1250 miles in front of the camera. I think the joy that showed through in my swimming movies comes from my lifelong love of the water she once said. No matter what I was doing, the best I felt all day was when I was swimming. As to retire from acting in the 1960s and used her status to sell lady swimwear and above ground swimming pools. In 1984, she finally made it to the Olympics, serving as a commentator for synchronized swimming events. Near the end of her life, Esther released her autobiography titled $1 million mermaid. The book was something of a tell all where she revealed a number of fascinating moments from her career in past marriages, as well as the sexism she experienced as a woman in the film industry. Esther Williams passed away in 2013 in Beverly Hills. She was 91 years old. All month, we're talking about movers and shakers.

"I would always tell my producers, this is how I'm going to approach this one. And this might go cost a little bit more than what we usually assume, are you okay with that? Only once I got the producers green signal that I would go forward. Right. So it always happened until magazine. Sure. And then the one after that three years later, I mentioned that you're interested in reincarnation. Which translates to the fly I believe, which a murdered man is reborn, reincarnated as a housefly, and wants revenge, which is a great idea. And he got a crazy idea. You look at it. Right. Well, so that and then, of course, that leads us to the two movies that really changed, I think, the industry in India changed your career, made it possible for our and everything that's followed. And so bahubali, the beginning, in 2015, first I should ask you, I guess you don't plan for there to be a multi part movie, right? It was just going to be the one movie. Yes. It is. But I should say the confidence, a lot of confidence for me to make Baja Bali. Came a bit of a bit of it came from magdi success of magadha, but a lot of it came from the success of eager eager. So it was such a crazy idea and the producer had so much of confidence in the storyline that we spent a budget, which was more than magdi. For such a small story. And we really worked upon it and when the film released and became huge success that you may immense confidence in myself that the way I am thinking, the way my dramatic sense is really, really appealing to the people. So I can really go forward with any exciting thought. And I'm in sync with the audience. It seems that way. And one of your dreams for years had been to do a big action war type movie. Was that partly because I know I think you recently were one of the voters for the Sight & Sound list of the greatest movies of all time, so I was looking at your list. And I believe you included braveheart, Gladiator, where these movies that made you want to make bahubali? Yes. Absolutely. Ben her. Starts with Ben Hur, brier Hart, Gladiator. I would say Ben her and braveheart to the maximum because I was so influenced by the style of filmmaking by the scale by drama by the action epic action scenes by a big battle scenes. Huge, huge impact on me. That really inspired me to make magdi ra to a small extent in basketball to a larger extent. And you certainly have in the first bahubali film. I mean, these giant battle sequences, thousands of extras, epic in every way. And it was a game changer. I mean, broke all the box office records everywhere. First Telugu language filmed to win best feature at the national film awards, which I think are basically the Oscars of India. And it was the beginning of what we were talking about earlier this pen Indian movement of crossing languages and cultures.

"No, it shouldn't be, but that's what it's there for in terms of the legislation. What would be your advice here in terms of the frameworks that you'd referred to as an Australian organization? Quite honestly, GDPR is bigger than Ben Hur. You know, I was on the original ice arc of GDPR working group and I was the one with the international view on this. Australian organizations that deal with the EU and EU citizens EU citizenry are obliged under GDPR. So that's again something that a lot of Australian organizations don't seem to be aware of. In Australia, when we talk about small business, small business in Australia is much smaller than small business in the states. Our small business here would be seen as being micro businesses in the U.S.. So we don't want it to be either a cost burden or indeed a labor burden on small organizations. So there has to be we have to give them some understanding of what they responsibilities are sending their businesses to the wall. So that's one thing. And the notifiable mandatory breach legislation actually, as an organization, we should be putting in place the response teams. We shouldn't get to the point that we have to notify the office of the Australian information commissioner about a breach because hopefully it doesn't happen. But if we do, we should have the protocols in place that we get our privacy security and senior executive executives together in 18 to look at how we deal with it. So that's what you need to put together. And you need to make sure it works as well. Don't just write it up straight from the privacy principles because in reality it won't probably work in your organization. So you need to run a few things through it to make sure it's going to work. Which is really important. You know, in this has not had the huge take up here as it has in the states. And I think there are a couple of reasons for that. One is it tends to be a little bit U.S. centric, mister is this reputation of being originally very government U.S. government focused. So but certainly the isos have very much had focus here..

You gotta watch it to the end. Let's read Vincent canby from The New York Times, I believe he also trashed godfather two. It's a measure of how the film operates that not once do we feel particular sympathy for any of the sharks victims. It put good actors to the test. They have to work very hard just to appear alive. Are you a freaking lunatic, Vincent can be? Really? Really? You have no sympathy for the charge victims? You don't care for the kid that gets eaten. Really? You don't care? For Robert Shaw? Who was on the USS Indianapolis? Are you a fucking idiot? Godfather part two. Vincent can be again. We already read it. Everything of any interest was thoroughly covered in the original film, but like many people have nothing to say part two won't shut up. Vincent candy, I hope you got fired. Seriously. Apocalypse Now. A dumb movie that could have been made by an intelligent and talented man. Richard TJ missing the weekly. Boy. Boy. Let's see what we are here. Okay. Oh, wait.

"While the film was initially successful when it was released it was so expensive to produce. It actually lost money. It wasn't until a decade later when the wizard of oz was re released into theaters that it managed to turn a profit. The movie's popularity only grew after it began airing annually on television beginning in nineteen fifty-six well. Mgm remained profitable over the following decades. They began relying on. Big budget. blockbusters like their remake of ben hur to carry the studio through less profitable smaller pictures but that strategy is failing in the late. One thousand nine hundred sixty s it looked like mgm was making a comeback releases like doctor zhivago the dirty dozen and two thousand one a space odyssey were signs that the studio was back to making hits again that didn't last in nineteen sixty-nine controlling shares of stock in mgm were purchased by businessman.

"Always walk into our show this time on a Friday Joe Neumeier, the movie minute guy here and W Warren Joe. We were playing tag team trivia earlier this morning, and I flubbed Flubbed this questions. I'm gonna give it to you. I'll bet you'll get it but I flunked. Okay. What? For? What movie did Charlton Heston win his Oscar Ben Hur 1959. Oh, that was easy. Easy. Everyone do it. But you one block him up. Come on, Boom! Boom! Oh, one of the apes, though I loved what I thought and 38. That's what I was thinking. Either. I was thinking of the 10 Commandments or Planet of the Apes Cipher. I completely forgot about Ben Hur. But here's the truth about Ben Hur. Now that I've got been her on my mind yet, Um I forgot that Nicholas Roses score. Yes, is absolutely brilliant. I was just I was just listening to it and it you realize having you know, it was the longest score composed for the movies that that that time, But when I'm listening to it, it had a profound influence on the way movies were scored. After that, those big, lush orchestral things people will follow that route for after him. Beautiful He did. Yeah, that's interesting, And it's also like it's sort of in some ways I could help sort of with some character development because I've To the movie and Ben Hur is ordered in 1950 nine's this big sword sandals epic, but it's also I mean, obviously, the chariot race is amazing and it but it's long like it's a long slog like and it's not like the 10 Commandments in some ways, but it's It's still a good movie, and it's great, but it's like it is a It's a flog so that music helps carry you through in a lot of ways that and I always feel like all those sort of glimpses of like Christ robe or a foot or things like that, Like a little bit of mystery that sort of is going on. It's sort of it's a beautiful element of that movie. I think a lot of people don't think is there which is this sort of like Nothing like a mysteriousness to it. You know, for all of the big action beats in the big moments of it, you know, But yeah, hasn't got his Oscar for that. And the year before he had done a touch of evil, the Orson Welles film That was a great era for him to do really interesting stuff since around the subject, Joe, who's the best actor never to win an Oscar? No, it's a very good question. Best after never win an Oscar, you know I mean, sure, Grant never won an Oscar. Ah, just 11 for the Philadelphia story should have one other so obviously, um, you know, in the modern era, you know a lot of those great guys from the seventies. Obviously all all one. There's Hackman and Hoffman and DeNiro, who you know, has 11 twice. Nicholson's won three times. Um You know, Pacino, obviously 11 with the better question for that is almost like one. Who were the guys who who should have won for other performances. And Pacino is great. And so many things, he 1% of a woman he really shouldn't have. Fine movie, but all those movies that he did in those early seventies, you know, right off the bat, you know, Dog Day afternoon and the two godfather films and Scarecrow. What, So many great things you should have won for those. So it's official question. Yeah, And if I'm not mistaken, though, Um, Barbara Stanwyck. I think she just got an honorary Oscar lifetime achievement. I don't think she ever won an Oscar. She did sort of. Like Hitchcock. Hitchcock also never got an actual, you know, in competition, Oscar he got in very close to his death died 1980 very close to his death. He got an honorary Oscar, but I think that but out of all his nominations were back, of course, won best picture. He didn't win, though, eh? So Hitchcock also is sort of one of those sad and period cool. Let's look, I'll put that right there. Peter O'Toole never won an Oscar and competition. That's That's the guy. I'll say that. Should've never win Oscars nominated like seven times, you know, should have feel watering guy. I'm going to go with Tom Cruise for fourth of July, but anyway, before we get too bogged down here, you've got a new movie out. And, as I jokingly said before, man, you can never have enough zombie movies keep marching in there you could ever have. This was surprised me called Army of the Dead. It's on Netflix. It's sort of you know, before things are opening up now, and that's gonna be it. We'll talk about that next week, Theaters were opening up. This is sort of one of the last gasp of the movies on Netflix. I liked it a little bit more than I thought I was going to I I'm kind of mixed on zombies. I like where wolves I'm okay with with vampires, but zombies are always like unless they're moving fast. You know, like, like World War Z or 28 days later, I kind of feel like really. These are your monsters, but this wasn't about. Come on, guys. Move along. Come on, guys, We gotta running. But Joe, the only way you could ever get killed by the zombies. And those old George Romero movies is we got stuck in an elevator with actually joke about that. And you know you don't There's elevators as we Dave Batista plays a guy who's and I liked a producer from the Guardians of Galaxies movies and he leave the red Take group. It's sort of like escape from New York in some ways into Las Vegas, which has become like zombie Central. There's an outbreak of the zombies. They walled off Las Vegas. They put a wall around it, and then they're gonna nuke it after a couple years because all those zombies in there they want to get rid of them so but just watch of money buried underneath a casino. And but he sent a bunch of people have to go in and get it. So it's a little like escape from New York. This movie references everywhere, including American World in London's a big reference In the beginning, I gave it two stars. I think it's okay. It has a cool look to it and produces fun, and you know, it. Sort of, you know, it's kind of big, dumb action movie fun, but I really didn't think I was gonna give it to stars because, like I say, Zombie movies, unless it's something like 28 days later, where there's something to it, or World War zero Zombie land, which I like, um, I feel like it or not there. It's not a It's not like zombie land. It's not so so snarky and in your face. It's it's okay. So you got Netflix this weekend. You want to watch a couple of zombies get blown away. It's long. It's like 2.5 hours long. Shouldn't been that long. But but it's okay. You got the anniversary of the shining coming up and we had someone listening to our program. The other day, we were talking about famous people from New Jersey. Somebody emailed me, and they said what happened? To Jack Nicholson. Where's Jack Nicholson? How's he totally retired from acting. He has never made. The actual announcement is totally retired, but he's certainly I mean things like the bucket list was the last thing that he did. Or maybe there was yet a cameo role in Owen Wilson film about 10 years ago. I think he's really just coasting it through. I think he's one of those guys and I love Nicholson. He's one of those guys. I think who recognizes that? And Cary Grant actually is another one of these guys, if you know if he makes a public appearance being so aged and not his usual self, and maybe lost some hair is, you know he's in his eighties. Uh, it would be, it would sort of diminish the mystique a little bit of that great Nicholson attitude. And so, so we haven't seen too much. He has not returned, but he's not gonna make another film. I'm sure it's not the case. Um, but you know Nicholson Story's amazing, too. You know, I think it's important 37. You know he was. He was one of those guys and there's not. There's a lot of them who was raised by his By you thought that his mother was his sister. When in fact, like, Remember the It means biography? Yeah, he talked about like he didn't know where that is. The ad his keys. He thought that this woman was his sister. And in fact, it was his mother because she was very young. Um, integration. Yeah. Great. Absolutely. Thanks. Joe Neumeier, WR movie minute guy. And her got that one off the bat. Thanks, Joe. All right up next. Here's a fun question for you. One of the strangest things ever left behind in Ubers. Kind of interesting. Some bubbles are ones there. We got the list. Plus our morning show. Recap next. I'm burning brighter with Owuor traffic.

I just run to mind people that this is a one year old disease, so people asking a lot of questions that scientists are trying to address. Historically, what we can say is that Corona virus once you've been infected with it, and you generate antibodies, they usually hang around for a few years. It's not going to be a one year deal because from what we know about the four corner viruses that I already endemic in huge human populations in this, this may not know about 25% of seasonal Coles.

You know, most of these vaccines generate very high tide of antibodies. So when you hear things out there that this is, you know, unify for more antibodies. That's fine. Because you know these vaccines list. It's much higher tighter of antibodies, then we do need so there's still provide some protection. And as we speak of modern, er, it's discussing about you know.

"Been collecting your questions about the covert 19 vaccines on our science Friday box pop app. And boy, did we hear from a lot of you? So today we're going to tackle what you want to know about these vaccines. Joining me to answer your questions is my guest Dr. Ben Hur Lee, professor in microbiology in the icon School of medicine of Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. Welcome back to science Friday Back to be back. Nice to have you, boy. There are a lot of questions, so I want to get right into let me start off with the basics. Here's a question we got from listener Nancy in Ohio If you received the covered 19 vaccine, can you still transmit covered 19 others? Well, let me just say first that the initial trials were not designed to test whether the vaccine can prevent transmission those designed to test whether the vaccine can prevent you getting infected. It's very efficacious from preventing infection that being said it is likely that once you have us sufficient immunity months of full doses, given that at the minimum, if you do get infected, the amount of viruses will be quite low, so the chances for interesting below But we do not have to date a one way or another yet to say whether thesis fail safe that you cannot indeed transmit the virus. So I would say, Let's wait for the data to come in because trials are being done to address that very point. You just mentioned Yeah, you'll be safe to assume then just for safety that you can transmit it. So take those precautions. Yes, I think so. A question from Paul in New Haven, Connecticut.

The missionary listen and follow this podcast for free on the I heart radio at number one for music, radio and podcasts, all in one ever get out of slavery. No way. There was no way for you to ever earn any money to pay off your debts to buy yourself back out of slavery you became when she was sold into slavery. You became like a person with one leg through the ice and the other one completely up against your chest and absolutely unable to help yourself. Now, the only way for a person to get out of slavery that was sold in for this reason was for someone who was free someone who was not a slave to come along and be willing to pay off all of your day. That's that you owed as a slave, and in that sense to buy you back out of the slave market to buy you back into freedom. You couldn't do it for yourself. Somebody else had to do it for you. This was known as redeeming ah, slaves and the Greek word that is translated redeem. In the New Testament, the Greek word translated Redemption Hill. A steri on in the New Testament is actually a word that originated in the slave market to refer to that practice. Of a free man coming along and paying off the debts of a slave who was completely helpless to help himself and buying that person back from the slave market and making them a free man again. Now in using this word, therefore, the Bible is giving us Ah, very beautiful picture of how Jesus found us and what he did for us a picture that every person in the day in time the Bible was written, would have clearly understood. Easily understood. How did Jesus find us? He found This is sinners who owed a debt to God we could never pay, And as a result, the justice of God left him no choice but to condemn us to the slave market of sin where we were helpless captives of the one who owns the slave market, and that's the devil himself. We had no hope of ever freeing ourselves. In fact, the Bible says John Chapter eight verse 44 that we were the property. We were Children of the Devil and the Bible says second Timothy Chapter two that we were caught. In the snare of the devil and were held captive by him to do his will. We were captives. We were slaves in a slave market owned by Satan himself. We belong to him, and we were captives in his slave market, and there wasn't anything you and I could ever do to buy our way out. That's how Jesus found us. The Bible says Jesus demonstrated just how much he loves us in this way. While we were yet sinners before we had ever done anything to deserve it. Christ died for us and following the word redemption. God gives us a dramatic picture of what Jesus did force When he saved us. We were hopelessly condemned to the devil Slave Market of Sin and the Lord Jesus Christ. Came and died on the cross to pay our debt. Tobias back to set us free, however, and here's the big So what? Jesus Christ didn't set us free to go do whatever we felt like he adopted us and there's a way he wants us to live. Look what he says. First Corinthians Chapter six verse 19. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit? Who's in you whom you've received from God. Now watch And you are not your own. You were bought. With a price. You understand what the Bible is saying? It's talking about redemption and saying Jesus Christ bought and paid for you with a price. And you are not your own. You don't belong to yourself anymore. Your body doesn't belong to you anymore. It belongs to Jesus Christ. He was the one who paid for it. He was the one who bought it back. It's his property, not yours. And since your body is now God's property, there's a specific way in which God wants it used. Yes, God set you free, but he set you free to do something very specific with your body. And look what he says. Therefore, honor God with your body, honor. God with your body in the way you talk, Honor. God in the way you eat and exercise Honor God in the way you handle sexual matters. Honor. God in the way you treat other people, honor God in what you watched on television, honor. God in what you read and look at in magazines. Honor God in everything you do with your body in every place. You take your body and everything. You allow your body to be a part of honor. God. Why? Because it's not your property. It belongs to Jesus Christ. He bought it. He paid for With his own blood. It's not yours, therefore use it the way the owner wants it used. You know, I hate to borrow other people's cars. I've had to do it. If you toss. I hate doing it. I hate it. I'm so nervous. I mean, I'm obsessed with taking good care of it and using it on Lee the way I think the other person would want to use it. I mean, I even come to complete stops at stop signs when I'm driving somebody else's car. I don't roll stop signs. I'm too afraid I'll get it. I rolled with my car, but I don't roll him in anybody else's car and as Christians, we need to have that same obsession with how we take care of our bodies. And what we do with them because you see there really somebody else's property. Your body is it's God's property, and the one of the things the Bible does is. The Bible tells us how the owner of your body wants it used your friend. May I challenge you? If you're careful with somebody else's car, and it's replaceable and doesn't even belong to God. It just belongs to another person. And above everything else. We need to be careful how we use our body because it belongs to God himself. And God's gonna hold us responsible, eternally for how we use his property. Therefore, the Bible says you are not your own. You've been bought with a price even redeemed now, Honor God in the way you used his property. May God help us to do that. God help us to think in those terms. God, this is your property. What? You want it going here? What? You want it watching this? Would you want it doing this? If not, then help me not to use it That way. May God help you do that. Your heavenly father. Thank you So much for the Scripture this morning, which teaches us that we have been redeemed for so many of us as Christians. That's been such a fuzzy concept redeemed. I guess that means I'm going to heaven but help us this morning to get a good grasp on what it means that we were slaves. We were slaves to sin slaves to our own passion slaves that belong to the devil in his slave market totally and completely helpless. Extricate ourselves and Jesus Christ redeemed us. He paid our debts and bought us back and made us free. But he made us free not to go do whatever we wanted to with our bodies. To use them to honor and I pray that as Christians we would indeed do that People might look at the way we live and understand that we have had an interaction with the living God that has transformed our life forever, and they can, too. Thank you, Lord. Jesus. She loved you so much that even though we weren't like Ben Hur, we had not done one thing to deserve it. You still were willing to come and buy us back. We love you for that, Lord. Help us reflect that love in the way we live. We pray these things in Jesus name. Amen. You've.
