"And sherry. Well, I have to say, I've heard of you, but I'm not too familiar with your show. The bobbin cherry show. With bob. My wife comes to the door, and she just wants to jerk me around just to see what happens. And sherry. I can't believe a woman would do that to you. And now, from the palatial bobbin sherry studios, bobbin sharer. So I have a talk much about my daughter who's experiencing her first semester of college. She's doing well, you know, some days are better than others. Last night, she FaceTimed me and she was sitting under, you know, dorm rooms have like it's a bunk bed and then there's space underneath. Yes. So you meet for like a desk or something like that. She says that they have in her she and her roommate under one of the beds, they have like a mini fridge and a little coffee like kernel. Right. So I see that I've got a FaceTime call coming in and I tap it and my daughter is FaceTiming me from underneath the bed so I'm looking up at her face and bedsprings. The underside of the bunk bed. And she's like, hello, mother. I'm wearing the same pajamas for the third day in a row. And the only thing I'm eating is cereal. And my head is going to explode because I'm so stressed out. And I was like, oh, honey, you know what? That's just college, and you're doing great, and give her a little pep talk. So I get off the phone with her and she texts me that she's, you know, telling me when she's coming home for Thanksgiving break. And then there's a list of things that she would like to do when she gets home. She wants to get her hair cut. And she wants to go to the dentist and all this other stuff. And is that possible to do? So I replied back, absolutely, but you're an adult now, and you need to schedule all that stuff, and I'll help you get to it, but I do not have room in my brain to take on one more person's good for you. You can schedule your own haircut. Right. And also, you know, 'cause you have to go through this too. When your kid or your spouse or whoever your partner asks you to schedule something for them, it's not as simple as you calling up and saying, hey, can we get her in for a haircut on such and such date? No, because it has to be in a very specific window of time. Well, they may only have so many openings. And well, no, she can't come with 2 o'clock. Do you have anything at four? Yeah. All right, what about 5? No. How about noon? What am I miss Jane Hathaway? No. So I said, you need to schedule all of that stuff for yourself. I love you. I know you can do it. So then I get a text this morning today telling me that she has succeeded in scheduling all of these things. And so I replied back, very adulty. I'm very pleased, doesn't that feel good? And she said, yes, it does. And we read her, I'm going to read her exact words. Yes, it does. And I think this is a good time in my life to start listening to hootie and the blowfish now that I'm an adult. And I thought about it. And I was like, you know, yeah. That is so snarky. It is so snarky. That is when you develop a real appreciation for hootie and the blowfish. Prove me wrong. No, but that's an insult to hootie and the blowfish. And all the who like Darius, right? That's exactly right. Yeah. It's funny though. It's funny in its own way. Because a teenage girl does not listen for the most part, I know there are exceptions. Especially mine, my daughter was only interested in finding bands that only three people had heard of. Who had indie deals and you could only download their music from YouTube. That was what she was interested in listening to. The lantern was like that too. Landon was, oh my God, Landon was exactly like that. The idea of listening to something that's really awesome yet mainstream. Have you heard of pond sludge? They're fantastic. You would love them. Knowing that I would hate them. But she just wanted me to know. She was dating a boy back then who was like in a band. Oh, I remember him. And so he was feeding her pun sludge. It's just fantastic. And I could tell when he would come over to the house. He'd see like my music collection. I still had CDs. And I know he wouldn't say anything, but I know that he's saying to himself, oh, he's still listening to that stuff. He doesn't know Ponce lodge. See, you know, I caught something. You're involved in this tie, you don't even know. I caught something early because the reason that your kids will come to you and say, mother, are you listening to allspice? No, honey, I don't know, all spice goes in pie. And I can't believe all spies. It's a band. There are these three guys. They're from Reykjavík. Yeah, right. And they don't play instruments. They play empty Quaker oats boxes. And they write all of their lyrics backward. It's so good. So your kid is coming to you with this to make you feel ancient analog touch. And with an attitude. And with an attitude, right? The irony is someday she will get married and she will have children, and they will discover hootie and the blowfish. Oh, kind of like how my girls starting in fourth grade played toto Africa on repeat. Exactly. Exactly the same the same thing will happen. The same thing will happen. So yeah, well, guess what? Olivia, we've all heard of hootie and the blowfish. Welcome to the adult. And by the way, they're together again, and they're touring. Yeah, what do you think about that? And they're probably going to come to your college. Yeah, but Todd's not going to get your tickets because he's tired of y'all make fun. It's bob and sherry. Happy Mother's Day.

So a therapist who works as a breakup coach, and you'd think that bob and I have one of those on speed dial, but oh no. This breakup coach says anger feels like the most proactive emotion for getting over an X because anger energizes us, but depression deflates us. Anger helps us feel in control of what we've lost. Anger can jump start your healing. But it can only.

What Is the U.S. Doing to Help Cuba?
"Get to it with our first topic. Which is actually about the historic protests in cuba where thousands of people took to the streets all across the country amid an economic crisis in food shortages exacerbated by the corona virus pandemic. In the last few days we've seen the government in cuba restrict internet access and block most social media sites. Although from what i read. Twitter is still like bobbin in cuba because the government uses twitter and also there were reports of over one hundred people who have been arrested or missing and that actually is. According to amnesty international and at least one person has died in clashes with police on wednesday. The president of cuba miguel diaz canal announce that they would lift restrictions to allow travelers to bring food and medicine into cuba from abroad. There is also an admission by him saying that his government could have done better with these protests that was interesting meanwhile back in the united states i feel like a comic book like meanwhile back at the white house on thursday president joe biden call. Cuba quote failed state and condemn their government's actions. We also know that the us has a role in this as there has been a decades old. I mean more than sixty years trade embargo by the united states against cuba which essentially prevents any business between the countries didn't back to nineteen sixty two k. So this has become an american tradition. Now the embargo just what it is. Yeah right you know what i'm saying. So but then the other thing is during the trump administration and this is what i find interesting. There were more sanctions put on cuba under trump and flight and remittances from family members in the us to cuba were even further restricted by the bynum ministrations. Pretty much has done. Nothing since biden has come into office. Nothing's really changed when it comes to cuba which you would think by now you know if we all remember obama he was like. Let's lift the embargo. You know what i mean. It was like you're in that administration. Joe right but according to the vitamin administration. They said that they are reviewing these policies but they've yet to reverse. Any of them are fabulous intern. Sarah her shandor spoke with an i guests. She has been on. Itt before seventy nine three goes who is a correspondent for political and somebody is of cuban-american descent and she has been reporting on cuba. This week and sabrina talked about the government's suppressive tactics like cutting internet access. And what cubans are hoping for so. Let's listen connecting for people has been a difficult. There's friends that. I haven't heard from in days that i know went out for the protests in there is that frustration anxiety about were. They beat in where they arrested. Are they missing an. It's hard to connect with people at this moment but a lot of people feel a level of frustration and desperation. That i had not heard before i mean. People have been tired of the dictatorship in cuba. But i will actually say from my perspective. Who was born and raised in cuba has been in exile in the united states for the majority of her life at this point. She's ninety one and she is optimistic. That change can happen. I mean her attitude about this is it can't stay this way forever and that these human rights can be violated forever. People can't be going hungry in dying on the streets from the pandemic without access to a hospital without access to medicine let it cannot continue that way indefinitely so that if it doesn't happen this time it has to happen at some point

I'll and wrinkles and moles and a head full of stray cats for hair. No Wanda was a young witch with just the standard amount of warts and wrinkles and moles though. Her hair was rather mousy and a stray cat. Probably did get more brushing Wanda Wall. Good was a wild which which meant that. She was never much for her reading and writing. She shunned her spell books and shirked her studies. She lagged each lesson and lamented learning. Like she'd lost a love. She was a wonderful witch in many ways always eager to search for a Birch bore or peruse upon until she was muddier than a worm on vacation but studying. It wasn't her cup of tea exit. She didn't even like t reading was fine but she'd rather be on vacation with the worms. If she was being honest this upset her terribly. They were raising her.

Stan Miller: Delivering Powerful Client Focused Solutions With Estate Planning
"Stan Miller welcome to the Nice guys on business. Podcast a great great to be here. I'm happy to have you here. And I think part of the process is you know the the intertwining between talking about the entrepreneurial entrepreneurial experience and talking about how really things like estate planning and legacy and all that fit into place so maybe we can back up just a quick second before we even get into the idea of. What is legacy? And what's estate planning? Maybe it's more of how do you fit into the world of an entrepreneur's You know they're they're planning for what's coming down the road for them maybe ten years and maybe fifty years in some people's cases so in in the work that I do I I get inside their lives and and do the best. I can figure out what is it to really drive these guys. What is it matters you know? Part of it is is is is creating wealth. But I'm telling you that every human being just about every entrepreneur that I've interacted with has a real passion for making a difference in the world and when they reach a certain level of financial security start seeing express. You see guys like Bill Gates for example doing just incredible things world. I saw today. Some guy wrote a check for a billion dollars to support the cove nineteen while fund. You know and so so you know it at our heart as human beings. I believe the way we're wired at the factory. The way were built. We have innate desire to make a difference in the world and for most people for most people the way they see themselves. Doing that is through family through their children through your grandchildren But also through it in committee Bobbin and through doing charitable kinds of things. Some people express it politically. So there's there's no one way to do it but there is that undeniable impulse has built into human beings and you see it particularly in times of crisis you see people doing just incredible amazing things coming together the in ways that are not definitively selfish so tell me about how they how legacy that. Word Legacy. Maybe we'll define that for just a moment how legacy fits into this into the financial world because legacy doesn't go just beyond dollars and sense as it goes beyond that into some other things or maybe just helped me define what legacy is and then we can talk about the difference between legacy and let's say a financial path to the future. Yes that's why I wrote this book because typically when people talk about their legacy you're thinking about what what is the stuff I'm going to leave the portfolio or the you know the financial acid. I'm the lead and that is part of it for sure but my view has been for a long time that financial advisors in the state planning attorneys who live in the world that I live in have Have had to limited view of what is in my goal here was to actually open the aperture on the conversation so that we were we able to recognize that while legacy included the financial component in while legacy included a legal component. Where you have a you have a legal structure that protects your financial wealth. I felt like I felt for longtime like a conversation stopped too soon. And not give people the opportunity to open up to the nonfinancial at the nonfinancial aspects of the things that matter to them in in so for me legacy actually wraps around and incorporates all three of those things. It's interesting because as the more the more I was talking to my financial planner through the last. I don't know ten or fifteen years of you know we doing the whole life insurance thing and helping me just kind of get things in the in the right order and I went through a divorce so making sure. There's some protection. They're making sure that my kids are taking care of all of that. I really dealt a lot with the With the financial side and I never realized that what he did wasn't really focused on and I love him. He's a great guy but what he doesn't do I don't think at least. Maybe I haven't uncovered this part of his of his Of his processes. I think he does more financial planning and less estate planning. So maybe can you? Can you share the? Is there a difference between those two things you're is? Yeah and that's that's my that's been the frustration is that we all live in silos. You know we tend to do all day every day. The things that get us paid right is financial guy. You're it's about selling insurance products because that's how you get paid or if or you get paid by assets under management if you're a lawyer you get paid for doing. These legal documents is so that's what we do. We get up every day. We gotta pay the mortgage paid employees right and so we do the things that we get paid port. So what I'm trying to do with this book and the things that are growing out of it is to get those guys the financial advisors into lawyers to sit down together and say how is it that we can exponentially enhance. The experience for our clients are having with us by energizing. The in integrating the financial conversation bringing about financial security ourselves and then leaving financial security to heirs. How can we do that in a way that that protects protects the air's So that you get all of the upside all of the good stuff that comes from leave being able to leave financial security. There's there are a lot of good things from that right. I mean leaving money to people as a good thing because they're able to travel. They're able to be educated as they wouldn't be able to have more stable marriages. Which as you don't have financial pressure and household but the other issue and this is something that that that you see when you particularly talked financial advisers that represent truly wealthy people there. There is a fear that wealth has the power to destroy human beings in you. You see that you see in you know we've seen it. I've certainly seen it. Where people that inherent significance amount that significant amounts of money all of a sudden. They don't need to have a day job right and so they can. They can quit work. They can develop drug addictions alcohol addictions They can you know they attract a whole different group of friends who who H H exactly and and it. It destroys self esteem because it also destroys trust. Because the people that I'm describing who fit in that category never never really quite sure if the people who are their friends are really their friends. or just there to to get to get the financial benefit of hanging around and so and so that whole conversation is what I believe. Lawyers and financial advisers need to be having together with clients because there are some really incredible power tools that that that can be installed. It's not there's not one single silver bullet saying there are a combination of power tools. That can be installed in a plan that allows you to get all the best parts of financial security while also truly empowering the lives of the people you care about.
Hook, Line, and Sink-Her: A History of Fishnets
"Berry wrote to US last month with the following an inquiry. And I'm quoting him. He says my wife and I have very different. Connotations we see fishnets I primarily. Associate them with burlesque and showgirls. But she remembers wearing them as a young girl in the nineteen sixties and primarily associates them with much younger girls and more innocent fashion. What's the history of Fishnets as a fashion accessory and that Berry is a great question and an inquiry that I immediately jumped on and it took me way back into unexpected and quite frankly unchartered territory for myself. This might not come as a surprise to our listeners but fishnets are of course athlete named after Fishing Nets School. The obvious yes April. It's been awhile since. We've put our dress. Detective hats on. Oh I see where we're going with this if you wouldn't mind grabbing yours a we are heading back in history actually quite far back maybe the farthest we've ever gone we're going back. Twenty eight thousand. I think we might need more than a half for that up. But I'm ready whenever you. I'm so sorry to disappoint you. Dress listeners but women were not in fact wearing fishnets. Twenty eight thousand years ago that we have evidence however in two thousand eighteen archaeologist and South Korea found fourteen limestone sinkers so basically these weights that have these grooves and them that indicated that they would have been tied to fishing at these extent. Sinkers are believed to be anywhere from twenty eight thousand five hundred and fifty. I love how precise date is to twenty nine thousand four hundred sixty years old and this discovery actually added nineteen thousand years to the earliest known use of fishing nets. My mind is officially blown. A little pink. Yeah and Fishing. Nets are essentially fibers nodded into an open structure resembling a grid. They've been used by cultures all over the world for thousands and thousands of years obviously and while the net attached to those thinkers that cash. Just mentioned doesn't survive. There are some really really old net. Set still do. The entry net found an entry of Finland is one of the oldest extant fishing nets in the world dating to around eighty four fifty BC E. And what is especially fascinating? Is that the same technology used to make these early fishing nets more or less is still in use today which is amazing and while our fish nets might be made of different fibers. They basically exists in the same form as they would have thousands or even tens of thousands of years ago but when did fishing nets you know this simple impractical device used for catching fish cast become fish nets that we all know and some of US wear today. Well this was not as easy and answered track down as I was hoping although I am grateful to pass dress guests Karen Been Horan. Who pointed me to our earliest visual source not eighty four hundred BC early but fifteen hundred to fifteen twenty ad early so you know five hundred years ago carrying authored a book with Jane Merrill called. She's got legs a history of hemlines and fashion and in the book they feature an image of an Italian jar from the walters. Art Museum in Baltimore which depicts a woman wearing these calf-high stockings which basically we can describe as fishnet stockings. And will yeah. It's pretty cool and it you are. Maybe we'll post it. And this is a painted image so not an extent example of fish nets but we have little else to go on except that the artists took their inspiration from somewhere. So maybe somewhere someone wearing These actual calf-high fishnet stockings. But the question is were women wearing fishnets in sixteenth century Italy. We might not have hard and fast evidence that they were but this is around the time. That scholars generally agree that lace a handmade openwork fabric was first being developed and really implemented into dress in Europe. And I know you're thinking lace fishnets lace fishnets. Well stay with us here. You know there are essentially two different types of lace and there can be many variations of those two types but the main two types are needle lace which includes a single needle and thread or uses a single needle and thread and there's also bobbin lace which involves multiple threads on Bobbins and they get braided together crossed over into many number of patterns so while we often associate lace with its intricate. Floral patterning of the foundation or the ground of this patterning is frequently a net. So if you look at the ground of. Let's say Valentine's lace. You will see that it's a square or diamond mesh or like an openwork very similar albeit smaller size to what we associate with fish net. So there's there's there's usually a net background on lace or a lot of lace. Yeah in the same can be said for filet lace April where patterning is achieved by embroidery on a knotted net ground so emphasis on the nodded. Because we just referenced this in relation to the construction of fishing nets and in fact fillet work is thought to have developed directly out of the fishing net which would have been owned by any number of European communities to which it would have been an indispensable tool. It's not far fetched to imagine that an enterprising woman might have recognized its potential value as a textile and began experimenting with decorative effects that being said cast all of these places. We just mentioned. Were being produced at this time entirely by hand which was incredibly time intensive and highly meticulous in this process and this meant that laces were prohibitively. Expensive all better few and because of this they really became status symbols and it is because of this reason that we have so many amazing portrait's from the sixteenth seventeenth eighteenth and nineteenth centuries that have these incredibly detailed depictions of lace. These men and women wanted to show off their lace right. They're literally wearing their wealth On their clothing and and it was an important that that the the porteous relayed that to the viewer but while we see the origins of an open net patterning lace of this period. I still had a really hard time finding any evidence of handmade lace net stockings. An I surmise. That these pieces were just too valuable to us as a garment that in addition to not being seen what have been subjected to the wear and tear a practical use. Because they're on your feet. You Walk on your feet for women to even begin to consider wearing net as a footwear fashion accessory to things appear to have had to have happened. I saw one lace net. How become affordable and thus more disposable and to as an impractical garment because you know fish nets fishnet tights are nothing if not a novelty? They really have to be seen to be appreciated. It's not like they're keeping you warm or anything like

Tear Down This Wall: The resistance
"The I on curtain was not the creation of a mindset or a system which had any time for dissent. The curtain was at its height. Seven thousand in Columbus of wires watchtowers walls fences minefields and sentry posts stretching from the Arctic Tundra Finland to the Black Sea coast of Greece. This old dedicated to preventing captive people's from fleeing somewhere they might speak think and vote freely. Nevertheless there was resistance courageous inventive and surprisingly rarely violent it took foams as different as the imprison nations of Eastern Europe would different in this third episode of the foreign discs series reflecting on the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. We look at Poland where the regime Asia was confronted by a trade union and joined by Pope the country then known as Czechoslovakia where revolution was led by poets playwrights and rockstars and Romania the only one of eastern Europe's liberation struggles of nineteen thousand nine to descend into bloodshed. This is the foreign desk. My impression of the strike in the Lenin shipyard was that this was going to happen as they were going to get way because there was nothing credible calm about the way people are going about the strike. There there was no panic. There was no drinking no rushing around people were just waiting for the government to give in and the government did get enough to series of public negotiation. I mean we knew something something was going on but we still wear not sat in that be able to live to see the end all the system. We knew Tom Unsustainable in the long run but most of our perspective close sustainable for longer than our lives about the thing about people on television television or a heads of the secret believes in the army and they were giving contradictory instructions to people in the field but there was fighting on on the streets. Nobody knew who was on whose side and the sea turns out of course neither there or no sides there was a single side and the churches were along and they had no loyal troops in August. One thousand nine hundred eighty a group of workers at the Lenin shipyards in Gdansk went Own Strike they called their fledgling trade union solidarity and hoisted a Groovy flag based on Poland's national banner with the Solidarity Name emblazoned in red on the White Stripe in cheerful friendly font within a year of its foundation solidarity had ten million members within within a decade. It had the country a few weeks after the Berlin Wall fell solidarity leader Falesa an electrician by trade was elected. President President of Poland Kristof Bobbin. Ski Is the President of Union and Polska a pro European think tank in Wausau. He's also the former Warsaw correspondent Brandin of the Financial Times. He picks up the story in Gdansk. In the summer of nineteen eighteen to strike in the shipyard had two phases one was a phase which which went from about this Thursday to the Saturday afternoon when the shipyard authorities the management gave into the demands and tell people go home that he said we've we've got the money or go home and at that point it was. The younger workers also led by young dissidents. I suppose who went round the ship out saying don't go home. The strike is not over people out there in the restive discuss still on strike. They were driving around in this small electric electric trucks telling the people not to go home and a lot of people go home but enough state from the Saturday afternoon and I arrived on the Saturday Saturday afternoon and I saw young people saving shy making it continue into the Sunday. On the Sunday people started coming back on the Monday morning people came back and strike got underway big strike on underway. So actually I had the impression that it was actually a young people's movement at that moment it was saved by the young people by the shipyard workers wasn't quite solidarity then because it was formed as it were off the strikes extended but my impression of the strike in the Lenin shipyard was that this was gonna happen this they were going to get their way because it was incredible calmness about the way people we're going about the strike. That was no panic. There was no drinking. There was no rushing around people. Were just waiting for the government to give it and the government did give enough to series the public negotiations and is the reason for those public negotiations were a certain number of Social demands pay demands but also the the main demand with for this supplements of independent unions

Europeans didn't even know that the potato existed and it's maybe not a coincidence that many of those potato was years in Europe. Were very lean years. Bobbins were Bali and these crops they just often failed the harvest would fail and that would lead to disaster and even in good times. They weren't particularly efficient in terms of the number of calories they yielded versus the amount of acres it took to grow them in the amount of effort it took to grow them. Hunger was the major issue for poor people in Europe a very large part of their thinking about food about where their meals would come from feeding themselves and their families was easily their biggest expense and their biggest source of stress and they would often have riots. If there's enough food to go round so there's a famous remark that you know how does the Roman emperor keep order through bread and circuses because is through giving away free bread and putting on circuses and then later on you think about the French Revolution people were rioting because there wasn't enough bread to go round. Marie Antoinette Queen is supposed to have settled if they bred. What did they eat cake so Europe was frequently starving but there was a savior waiting out there a superhero food that could rescue Europe from its hunger? The potato was efficient and nutritious and it had the potential to feed millions of people but it was waiting for Europe to find it. Spanish explorers were the first Europeans to encounter the potato in South America in the fifteen thirty s when they were conquering the Inca Empire and potato seemed to have made it to the Canary Islands just off the west coast of Africa in the fifteen sixties. Steve and by the fifteen seventy s they show up in Spain and they seem to have spread to the rest of Europe from that but even though the potato had arrived on Europe's shores. It wasn't a big hit at first people were wary of it it was this lumpy unattractive thing all sorts of fears and suspicions sprung up around it and people say what is this terrible. Food is not fit for humans. It's gonNA give us leprosy. It's awful. It's disgusting. Nobody could like that. It's not appetizing. This is the Food Writer A. B.. Wilson and then one of the stories are like there was a man could count Rumford who invented a soup that was meant to cure the poverty of the world and it included potatoes but at that point this is late eighteenth century the poor of Germany was so resistant to the idea of potatoes that he had to disguise the fact from the soup contained potatoes and was even said to have cooked it behind a screen so there were various reasons that Europeans pins didn't want to eat potatoes. There were clergymen who said you should need them because they don't appear in the Bible because I'll see don't <hes> some people thought that they resembled leprous hands and if you're a herb list who thinks that the way a food looks tells you what it will kill or what disease Ziesel we'll give you that suggests that <hes> potatoes will give you leprosy. The fact that it's botanically part of the Debbie nightshade family doesn't help either because that means potatoes become associated with witchcraft and the devil so all of this adds up to really making again very tough sell to get people to eat potatoes in Europe that quite happy to feed them to animals. They just don't want to eat them themselves. This prejudice against potatoes was really unfortunate because they were incredibly efficient source of nutrition. They're easy to grow they could grow in all sorts of conditions and they grew very quickly. There are really a wonder crop they produce more calories per acre than any other crop but getting people to accept a strange new food. No matter what a good idea it would be can be a real challenge. Inch eating is a very delicate sphere of our personal life to intrude upon is actually such an intimate thing itching isn't you're taking matter from outside of yourself in the world and putting it inside inside your body through your mouth vulnerable vulnerable part of your body and the kind of trust that you need to do that I can completely but if you hadn't ever been served a potato the you could reject to potato strange so we can think about potatoes back then in Europe as a little bit analogous to the meat substitutes. We're seeing today in both cases. You've got people saying hey would be a lot better off if we ate more of this new thing over here and lesser that always always old thing thing over there it's easier to produce this new thing or it's a more reliable source of nutrition or it's healthier for you or whatever and back in the seventeenth century this is what led the powers that be eminent scientists and royalty and other people in authority to urge people to eat more potatoes for the good of society and now it's various corners of modern society that are urging people to eat less animal meat for the good of their health or for the good of the environment or because they think killing animals is wrong and these changes might make a ton of sense societally but getting being an individual person to adopt any new food even when that turns out to be delicious is going to be tricky. I mean tomatoes. I mean that's the one that just gives me for centuries. Italians had never seen tomatoes watches. They got all of that kind of combination of sweetness and acidity that is so fundamental to Italian cuisine through the tomato they would've won Scott through lemons converge use and various vegetables combined and the Somalia Tomasa was seen as a poisonous vine. People thought it was gonNA make embrace it. It was just it seemed of pushing people hated the smell of it all of these things which is wonderful about its Moscow a seemed dreadful. I mean if Italians were grossed out by tomatoes for hundreds of years. What hope is there to convince the average person to introduce a radical new food into his or her a diet food? Is something much much easier than the tomato and and okay. We're on the street in London. I'm quite day where the economist officers are outside. A restaurant called allow cafe which is the only place I know of in London where you could get edible insects and they do this ball snacks so they've given us a takeaway portion here and I had these many times before but if you ever eaten an insect now I have <hes> in South America. I tried some grubs. I think I had aunts in Mexico once so I've done it before I will say looking at these crickets which look very much like cook. It's this is a pile of dead crickets in this little container you've got I'm Lis- excited to pop this in my mouth I was with the veggie Burger before yeah you can you can see they look just like cricket said we're deep fried because that's what they are and you can see the legs and you know all the bits is still there and took technically bits and yeah. It's some I agree. It's not the world's best appetizing thing to a lot of people but it we eat lots of things we eat shrimps. We maybe a different anyway. Let's have a cricket grab. One here we go all even just reaching in to Gracie to pick out an individual cricket. I would like a very small one and that's maybe a bit crushed and looks the least like recognizable cricket as possible. I don't even want to go okay got it. Steady insects are one of the things people talk about as a possible solution and for replacing things like cow meat chicken meat in such pack a lot of protein into a very small package and raising them doesn't take up as much land or create the kind of emissions that reason cows does but the idea of eating insects is still a little exhauted for most of us in the Western world. Can we really convince be groups of people eat bugs. Oh that's not bad at all. It's nights and nutty taste. It's basically like ticket. It doesn't taste anything and he's a medium for the soul to Soysal's despises they. Put on that Oh yeah I think it's great. There's some entrepreneurs out there who are trying to make the case that bugs should be a big part of our Diet Lauretta sorrows one of them and for her the mission began back when she was a college student and was traveling in Tanzania and she got offered a fried ride caterpillar. She thought it was delicious. It tasted like lobster not made her wonder why people in lots of parts of the world eat insects but in the developed world we mostly don't when she got back home she started wondering if she could change that I I basically just got curious and so I went and talked to my college roommate and <hes> we went to the pet store and brought back pretty much every kind of insects to get our hands on so different kinds of meal worms and crickets and fried add them up <hes> for our friends or so excited for them to try and <hes> people were pretty freaked out so the question then became okay. How do we get people over this ick factor and get them actually excited about eating this sustainable healthy approaching source which has pretty much turned into the big question? We've actually been trying to answer the last five years. This quest turned into a company called chirps. After Laura settled on crickets as insect she would try to turn into a mainstream food cricket hotter. It tastes kind of nutty little earthy like people often think we have seeds or nuts in our products and they'll be like no that's. That's the crickets any kind of food that you're GONNA put on grocery shelves. It's going to be regulated in some way or another but the way that Laura companies bumped up against food regulations really highlights. Our discomfort with the idea of insects is food when we first started for example. We had a hard time with the Massachusetts State Health Department. They kept telling us our job. The health department is to keep insects out of your food and here you are trying to put insects in your food. Crickets get raised on a cricket firm which isn't like a regular farm. Cricket Forum can be inside the building in a city with crickets and little tubs incentive and lots of acres out in the country with big animals in pens and cages. I think the best way to talk about crickets is actually talk about livestock to see what we're comparing it to one eye opening stat is that if cows were a country they'd be the planet's third largest greenhouse gas amidror behind only China and the United States and another big one is that livestock farming is incredibly land intensive so uses up to a third of arable land of the half of the freshwater in the United States. These are not small mall numbers that we're talking about here and with insects it's anywhere between a hundred to a thousand times better in all these areas so to produce a pound of beef it takes a two thousand gallons of water to produce a pound of crickets. It takes about one gallon of water. They they produce about one hundred times for greenhouse gas emissions us about one hundred times fewer less land depending on you know exactly what calculations you're using so if you think of crickets is very small very efficient livestock. This sounds pretty good. It's a nutrient three in dense food. That's high in protein. It can be grown with less impact on the environment. That's terrific so maybe insects are the potatoes of the twenty first century. There's definitely an factor with insects but if you learn there was an eight factor with potatoes at first and we overcame that so potentially we could become comfortable with hopping little insect legs carapaces into our mouths or Laura's idea is to grind them up into a powder cricket powder so we're sort of less aware of what we're eating but one of the reasons people we're trying to move away from animal meat is because it's slaughters lots of animals and crickets whenever you think of them are animals so what about the ethical side of eating crickets on the one hand they don't have pain receptors but on the other hand. They're still living beings presumably. If you

"Go to set Gorka dot com. Thank you for carrying. This is America first. And what is this the third guest of the day? Incredible. The third guest of the day. I'm excited to announce is none other than congressman Brian bobbin. F force a veteran from Texas the thirty six congressional district. I consider him to be a good friend of my Brian. Welcome to America. First. Hey, Dr Gorka has great to be on your show. Great job. And I appreciate thank you kindly. We have you on the show for very specific reason, you are the co chairman of the congressional border security caucus you've traveled down to the border on multiple occasions. Can you share with our listeners we're on more than three hundred stations and affiliates and platforms across the country from California to New York from all over north and south? Can you explain to our listeners why this is a national emergency on our border? It's very easy to explain I've been to the border for the last two months. San diego. Arizona and twice in Texas. It's amazing to hear the Democrats. Tell tell us that this is a manufactured crisis down there. When I say anything other I'm a healthcare professional practice dentistry for nearly forty years, I know healthcare crisis when I see one, and there is definitely one down on the border. That's just one aspect of this national crisis. It's not only humanitarian and healthcare, but it's also national security. I talked to many many people who have lost loved ones who have been robbed in some way or another harmed by illegal aliens coming in by human traffickers, who found the remains of of of deceased persons. Seen things such as rape Crees. It's it's just incredible. They weren't really wanna talk about it. And what's happening because of our out of control policies on immigration as a loophole for for asylum seekers, and how it absolutely hangs out to welcome sign and incentivizes people to make the dangerous crack all the way up here from Central America into the states and at their own peril. So there are there. Women their children there people and all the time making profits grow for drug and human traffickers, it is crazy, and I are seen it with my own eyes. And it's incredible that the the people across the aisle cannot see that. And by the way, like one democrat went with us on our trip down there on our trips down. That's incredible. So they could have come with you. It would have been open to them to join you to actually see for themselves, and they refused to. Absolutely. It's it's it's my understanding that they were there were several of them were invited. And they just did not bother to to come. I've read that they're going to be some that are strictly democrat delegations that'll be going down there. And I hope they get to see the sayings and talk to the people that that we got to talk to as well, if they decide to go, but let me tell you something Dr Gorka, this was a deal that was presented to our president. This this five point, you know, he was asking for five point seven day. Again, we were offered one point three seven five and a budget of over a trillion dollars. The Democrats could not find five point seven billion for national security and border security. It was amazing to me. And I do not blame the president one bit for what he had to do to try to secure this border. I know he didn't. Want to have to do to declare an emergency. But he absolutely was a mandate because he loves this country. And I support the man one hundred percent I wish he had not had to have done that. But it was absolutely not enough to secure the border, and you know, the power of the purse lies with the congress, and the white congress votes shows are already with the boats that we cast Democrats give lip service to warning border security. But obviously that is not the case about by the evidence that was presented to us. You are listening to congressman Brian, Bob. In from Texas is thirty six district. Follow him on Twitter rep Brian bobbin, B A B. I N not only. Are you a medical man? Not only you an air force veteran. You're all also interested in the final frontier in the last minute and a half we have left. I know you're very active with regards to space issues and NASA could you share with our listeners how excited as Americans we should be about what this administration is doing with regards to space. Well, you should be very excited after you listeners, you're interested in and the new frontier space because we have an administration now absolutely wants to be second to none in space. President Trump is formally announced a new space policy directive recently to create a new space force, and that is not because he wants to to militarize spaces because our adversaries around the world at pushed the warfighting domain into that space into space and it new brass will exists within the air force. And then also when we talk about our civilian side. We have a great priority of that is to go back to the moon and onto the final goal of this administration, and that is to to to achieve the the trip to Mars, but Seaman's on Mars and this time we're going to the moon to stay not just put footprints on it. And I as a Representative of Johnson Space Center and for. Four years is the space subcommittee chairman. And the right hurt ranking member on the space subcommittee. I am really really excited to see the things that are happening in our space program. Well, that is a message of hope for all Americans. Brian bobbins been on Capitol Hill for three years is one of the true citizen politicians. He's fighting for you fighting for America, and he has the president's.

Gussie Clarke Says Reggae Spreads A Universal Message
"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from internet essentials from Comcast. Connecting more than six million low income people to low cost high speed internet at home. So students are ready for homework class graduation and more. Now, they're ready for anything finally today. How about a little reggae. It is probably Jamaica's most recognizable and influential musical genre. And now it has been recognized by the United Nations reggae has earned an entry on UNESCO's Representative list of the intangible cultural heritage of humanity. Joining hundreds of other traditions from embroidery art integ- stand to bobbin lace making in Slovenia and one of the people pushing to recognize reggae on this list. Was Augusta's Clark known as gussie. He's been a leading reggae producer and music publishers since the nineteen seventies and has many hits to his name. He's also the founder of music works studio in Kingston, and he was tapped by the ministry of culture to help make the case for reggae. And he's with us now from his office in Kingston, the capital gussie Clarke, thank you so much for joining us. Congratulations. Thank you for the opportunity to spread the word that the world anew said, he's well, no, thank you for that. But the world already knows about reggae. So why was it important for reggae to get this official recognition as with any innovation recognition? Shen needs three placed at the head of those who created so as a country, we are somewhat of a cultural powerhouse. So we felt that it was appropriate for it to be, you know, recognized as with many other things we do that we were to innovators of this yard or music. So for the three people who might not be familiar with reggae already. Could you tell us a little bit about what makes reggae reggae? The most known factor about reggae is about the message in the music. And that message has resonated with people of a law social economic base. Gene. Coz, you votes troby hold on keep good have faith and love your brother, a good guy. So it's the message in a music a lot of people who've learned reggae just don't even sometimes under stunned. But it it's it's the beat is very infectious at it catches you. I mean, reggae is so much of an individual culture, and he can extend to the by their country, for example, if we have the same set the news today playing Samsung and tomorrow, they are playing the same on what field in a different mood. You'll get a difference on not the same. So it is subject to feel the mood of the individuals at the time of which they are creating what they are creating the UNESCO page about reggae states. That the music is a contribution to international discourse on issues of injustice resistance love and humanity, which are all just deeply important aspects of the human condition. But isn't there something a little strange about the fact that something that arises from people who are on the margins right? Who who do not have a voice, and then now to have it kind of brought into these elite spaces is there something a little weird about that. No. It just simply means it does cross Barton's bone Drew's cultures. Their person's over example, extremely well. Off might be run richest persons the world, there might not be happy. But the IRA songs that carry that kind of message at makes them feel good the. Might be persons who are pretty poor and brecca gives them the vibe feeling to work hard to rise up to the occasion and be better than what they are. So getting to the world front desk. Cross so many bones of social economical, cultural political, and it has a space in every different weird lands because he's not one dimension message. It could be love it could be defend yourself. It could stand up for your right? It could be don't be stupid. It has so many different message. It it resonates. Nearly everyone who gets upper trinity list property, so Mr Clark can you pick a song to play us out one love? It's the order of the day by Bob Marley one. Love is good enough for me. Right. That's legendary reggae producer. Thank you so much for talking with us. Thank you too. Bye.

It covers the economy for Bloomberg news economists expecting the unemployment rate to drop to three point eight percent in August that will be the lowest since two thousand matching the lowest since one thousand nine hundred sixty nine. The one puzzle. That remains as the unemployment rate has dropped lower. Is why wages aren't picking up in a more sustained way? They're expected to be basically in line on a year-over-year basis. Still below three percent that's weaker than we've seen in prior expansions. And not as strong as you would expect these extremely low levels of joblessness. I think that's a big question. Jerome Powell the fed chair and his colleagues will be watching as we get jobs reports for the remainder of the year, Gina smile. Thank you.

'Dora the Explorer' gets a live-action, teenager makeover in first film reveal
"E. let's talk a little bit about door the explorer, a live action door. The explorer movie is happening and we now have a first photo to prove it tell us what's going on. So for some reason, news of this movie has escaped my notice for the past year, I think, has a as Abella. Owner was cast as Dora the explorer as a teenage version of the character earlier this year in March. And now we have a first look at her character in the classic Dora the explorer outfit. So a pink t shirt or in shorts and a backpack. But this time she's a teenager. So the new Dora, the explorer movie follows Dora on a quote, unquote, the most dangerous adventure ever high school. But because this is the explorer, she finds herself on a an adventure with Diego and a ragtag group of teens to save her parents and solve them puzzle mystery behind a loss Inca civilization. So this is the character based on the bovid animated children's series Dora the explorer in which we have an eight year old bilingual explorer named Dora who goes on ventures and teaches kids how to speak in Spanish and other such useful t- knowledge. So. I've never seen the show. This is on long after I was a kid, but I know that as a pretty beloved property. And yeah, it's it's just I didn't know that this was becoming a movie and it's very interesting that they have is Bill moaner wearing the exact same outfit that the seven year old door a war. So. She's wearing like a cost play, kind of it looks like the the model for a Halloween costume. You know. Yeah, it does. My can't help, but think that this is going to become somewhat like the twenty twelve college humor parody. Have you guys seen that whole? It was like the Dora, the explorer movie, but it was a a sort of sexy reboot of the of the children's show. And it was area winter. If modern family wearing like this exact outfit and doing an an adventure with like an always speaking very sexy and everything, and it kind of gives me the same vise, even though I know this is a serious film, but I don't really know what to expect from this fill. So James bobbin who directed the Muppets is directing this movie, which gives me a little bit of hope that it won't be as bad as what I imagine that color the culture skit is because I really enjoyed the first month that movie, and I thought he did a great job with that. And that is also a property that you know had like a family friendly, sort of following to it. And I think he, he handled that material really well, I don't know. About this one. I'm not really familiar with moaners work as an actress, but Brad, I know that you've seen her in a transformers the last night. Is that correct? Yeah, and she is really the only one in that movie feels like she's giving her best performance and actually she got gives performance that's along those same believable lines as Shiloh Buffoni original transformers, and she really makes you buy into what's happening to the point that when I did my set visit for that movie, it kind of made me think, oh, they could totally built a franchise around here of this continued because she's she's really good. Mark Wahlberg at one point even called her little jaylo which is pretty, he's Denver Lopez who could actress in her own right as well. So yeah, I, I'm not necessarily interested in the door. They split movie that that was well past much out that year. I am more familiar with it because I do have a sister who was growing up around the time door.
