"How do you arrive at that I don't. Fan. Exactly! Pointed out of his is exactly is Michael Jordan's version of Hitler. Moustache which. I think Hitler. Kinda ruined that mustache for a while. Michael Jordan did that, too. That was so bizarre. So to be absolutely clear. And not only the Non Mormon historical record backs me up on this, but so do the official writings of the church. Brigham young was a man of consummate evil, not just by today's standards, but his own as well he was deeply hateful of black people and robustly pro slavery. He owned the man who entered the Salt Lake. Valley one second before he did, and enslaved black person called green flake because he was driving the wagon Brigham sick ample rump was laying. He made the Utah Territory. The only American slave territory outside of the south he was a mass murderer who ordered the massacres of of at least hundreds likely far more far more indigenous people the order for the tip massacre, being just one example where probably died. And likely even gave the order that took the lives of over a thousand, or I'm sorry. Over one hundred California bound white. Arkansas settlers at the mountain meadows massacre, which Doug disgusted in episode, Fifty One. As experience he had an intestinal thing that made him grumpy. He was grumpy man and he looked like it. As he was both civil ecclesiastical master of his people, he was basically responsible for everything that happened in the territory where a fairly common practice was capturing or buying indigenous children to be slaves in white households. Most of whom only live to be about twenty. There's record of hundreds of these cases. He had no less than three dedicated assassins, whom he directed to commit an unknown number of blood atonement, which were just extrajudicial murders of people he hated. You can listen to our segment about that and episode fifty. Here are some quotes, and there are many more from my friend. Brigham young pertaining to slavery and black people generally. You must think from what I say that I'm opposed to slavery. No exclamation point the Negro is damned and is is to serve his master till God chooses to remove the curse of Ham. Another one is shall I tell you the love God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain. The penalty under the Law of God is death on the spot. This will always be so. Any man having one drop of the seat of Canaan him cannot hold the priesthood..

"You should look them up. He was kind of amazing. Challenge breeze to understand that the stars and stripes maybe don't mean the same thing to all Americans, so he can fuck off with insisting it has to. So let's talk about another flag. The Stars and bars of the racist theocratic United States of the confederacy. It was the battle flag of a republic that chose to March to national suicide and annihilation against the more populous more industrialized North for the express purpose of defending their God given right to own own and exploit other human beings. There's a fact that is not in dispute. As. Not In dispute by historians. Who actually know things? So as I've tried to pound new information through my own thick skull these past few weeks I took killer Mike's Advice and read the cornerstone speech. This was a speech given by Alexander Stevens, the vice president of the confederacy just weeks before the first shots were fired at Fort Sumter. It. It leaves no doubt that the confederacy would die defending a certain God ordained institution and I quote. The comments, the new constitution has put to rest forever. All the agitating questions relating to our peculiar institution African slavery as it exists exists amongst. US, the proper status of the Negro in our form of civilization. this was the immediate cause of the late rupture and the present revolution meaning the moment. In! The, coming war, right, our new government is founded upon a in the Just had our new government is founded upon exactly the opposite idea. Its foundations are laid. Its cornerstone rests upon the Great Truth that the Negro is not equal to the white man that slavery subordination to the Superior Race is his natural and normal condition. This our new government is the first in the history of the world based upon this great, physical, philosophical and moral truth. So. The founding and defining principle of the confederacy was their God given right to practice slavery forever. Miss me with the state's rights. Bullshit states rights to do what exactly right to fucking own people and expand their lives in the service of your money, so despite getting roundly defeated. I apologize that my cat is is interrupting such. Waving my arms editor together to stop. She's very adamant about the black black lives matter movement. Yeah. She's hearing it. She's got something to say and I welcome it so despite getting roundly defeated and even Robert e Lee himself. Saying it was all over so knuckle that shit off. The battle flag of the confederacy started popping up in the decades after the war and emancipation. It took extremely open racist Dylann roof, murdering nine human beings who had welcomed him into their. Bible Study Group in South, Carolina. And Activists Breen newsome, climbing the flagpole, and pulling it down in a guerrilla move to finally get that fucking symbol of hate removed from the capitol grounds in South Carolina for good. where it had been placed not in eighteen, sixty one, but in nineteen, sixty one as a reaction to the budding civil rights, movement and desegregation. And Remember? The flag question is not the national flag of the confederacy, but the standard. It flew expressly for war..

Yeah Okay so just as we progress to the narrative try not to think of squids or bears, insects these jokers just like the moon, quakers were familiar, although perhaps with the strangely tailored jacket This informs one of my favorite moments in any science fiction story when one enemy says to the other after doing battle. We are not so different, you and I. It another time I called you friend yeah. Every time that happens at a science fiction story I get up here. So. We're GONNA.

"Deep Cut. Okay so no, there are other Mormons out there and it's actually lots of them. In fact, Joseph Smith Juniors rhapsodic Eighteen Thirties Jacobean.

Who wouldn't want to be the keeper of the keys to one of the dopey s theologies of represented to mankind The largest schism in Mormon history happened right after Joseph Smith died though a few happened while he was alive.

It is from that Mormon offshoot, which is now known as the the well was then known as the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter, Day saints, or are Elliot's because they were not into the brevity of the original church. And wanted to add a word. It was from that Mormon offshoot, which is the Shia to our Brigham Sunnis that today's protagonist springs. Fast forward to nine, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, and the birth of Jeffrey, Lundgren when America was when America was great back in those days, correct. Jeffrey was born in Independence Missouri which is where the LDS church is headquartered. He was beaten and abused by his peach of a Dad He became quite a loner throughout his schooling years, and his dad was obsessed with the boy, becoming Manley, and not showing weakness. They spent time hunting and learning about guns. Because there's one thing you want in society, it's self conscious loners with steam problems who are who are trained in weaponry.

And take it bar Bossy is the same as as one of the company's founders correct to Las Labar Bussey. So. He's a specialist in in network medicine. Is that correct is? What is meant by that term network medicine? So, it's basically. understanding and describing diseases on a molecular level using what is called the interact dome, which is the protein network of of human cells Dr Bossy on his academic collaborators at Harvard have over a decade developed. Science and a platform that. Allows us to look at disease in various student and an accurate way using protein network, and when you look at a disease on on through the land of the protein at work, you are able to capture the complexity. Of A, lot of diseases that are impossible to capture any other way. So. How did the project come about? Did he reach out to Cypher? Cypher suggests this. Well. It was it was. Say Indicative of how things have gone. Through this whole pandemic. The last reach out to us and said that there is a group of scientists that are coming together to try to solve the problem of coming up with generic drug to treat covid nineteen and we said. Can. You guys something we said absolutely. And it was quite interesting because. You know typically in engaging with northeastern and Harvard us. You know six to nine month process of paperwork. To to our surprise, we were asked to jump on. Call the same afternoon. And we started running calls that are still going actually every day at three PM. A consortium of researchers of have gone on Soom Kohl's and push the project. CIPHERS. Role in this effort, so we are. We're using our.

"What's up everybody? Welcome ties you and game. Few team at Hadfield joining me. This week is Tina Amini deposes back. It's back does scoops. Johnson Davis Scoop and SAM clayborn. What's on your Hatfield today? I'm starting to the campaign The Game I was gushing about last week or not tunnel castle has been removed from the Nintendo e shop on switch even though it did nothing wrong. It's an amazing game needs to come back Switch so I'm starting the campaign. Eternal Castle did nothing wrong. Didn't show a bunch of blood or something like pixellated blood. It wouldn't I don't even think would have been red. Blood is pixellated I don't understand what that means but we do have a great show for you today. Lots to talk about lots of really fun. let's emails to get through. But I Tina. I know you've been working a lot on summer of gaming. Brigham and now Our schedules out in public. That everyone's gotten a chance to take a look schedule. It's all kicking off next week teen. Is there anything you want to like? Highlights or like make sure people are aware of when when when do people need to start tuning into our coverage? Absolutely I mean yeah next week June fourth but you know full disclosure. We reserve the right to move things around as necessary. I think a lot of people are you know making announcements and catching up with their own assets and their own team figuring out work from home scenarios. So it's important to for us to stay nimble. Which is what we've been doing as we've been planning this whole thing and making lots of shifts and turns but as far as highlights First and foremost is the first time that I actually putting on a press conference of our own and not just that. But we're putting on three press conferences. We're calling them. Aegean Expo That's gene fifth. June eighth June ninth. So it's all exclusive content. Some of it is actual game reveals Some of it is the developer interviews along game. Play that you're familiar seeing from us during normal three during normal June time frame but I think the other big thing to know is it's kind of impossible for us to be like completely transparent about everything that we're working on because we're still working on it so there's lots of other to come so it's as full schedule as we could get ready for. Public is just to give people an idea of what's to come in the show and get excited about things that they're personally looking forward to But lots of big updates like from blizzard and xbox and a lot of those a big people that you like seen games from had something here that I thought was really cool about this E-3 Is not just about the big press conferences. When you got three you discover games. You see a bunch of cool stuff on the floor. And that's the stuff that I feel like. We have the unique obligation to show people like. Yes you guys are. GonNa be able to see these big conferences. Were carrying them. We're going to be awesome stuff on those and those games are gonNA cover too. But I don't think there's anybody else that has the stuff that we released at Over the past couple of days are schedule has a something for everybody. It has games That only this people that like this show will like games that people that I would never play for everybody. And that's how he three should be seriously like there's a lot of people out there that are going to be. You know a watching these big stream streams this summer but like check out what we have. We have cool stuff to show a lot of lot of NEAT nexgen games. You've never seen before on that note. I can t something for the Games that we haven't talked about publicly yet Which is yeah. We're trying to be as inclusive as possible if you like. Vr Games we'll be VR games con content. There like any games will be plenty of indie games as well And we're creating a new segment around our dear friend Tom Marks where he'll be highlighting You know hidden gems essentially That you might not otherwise have been able to see if you were just paying attention to a big conference and that is a big part of like us being able to go to these events discovering games that are harder to Come above the fold of the big squaring drops and the big Sony drops. So it's going to be like his segment that he's creating on his own And hopefully identifying some some cooler lesser known games up post. He really is. I mean you know. Bow Ties and pies aside. He's still the very best even beyond that.

Antibody study suggests coronavirus is far more widespread than previously thought
"Blood tests to detect past exposure to the virus are starting to hit the market but as NPR's Richard Harris tells Steve Inskeep of morning edition even test that claim to be more than ninety percent accurate will often miss the mark one of the tests supposed to do well the test cannot be used to diagnose the disease instead they identify antibodies that appear in your blood about a week after you've been infected he said about is a part of your immune system's reaction to the virus so I just do not know the weather people with antibodies are definitively protected from the disease and if so for how long but that hope that prospect is really driving a lot of this excitement so for example I talked to Deborah Vander gassed and tipped in Iowa she runs a daycare center for children with developmental and behavioral disabilities they're a lot like little kids everywhere we laugh about you know the the sanitizing everything because you know the three impacted justice two seconds later center gassed is eagerly awaiting the rollout of the blood test in her county she thinks about her staff who are being hyper vigilant not to spread the disease if some of the people I have already been established to have antibodies they wouldn't have to go home and I sleep for two weeks they can continue working she says the test isn't available in her area but it is starting to take off nationally Dr Jeremy Galbraith runs a mobile medical service in Austin Texas he says he got a supply of antibody tests made by a major Chinese manufacturer he's already run a few hundred tests in the last few days we you know also the test for people who may have suspected that they had corona virus back in February or March when testing with a nasal swab PCR was very limited Gabbar says he only test people when he has other evidence that they might have been exposed if they had an illness that sounds like it could have been coronavirus and they have a positive antibody test then it's very likely that this is a what we call a true positive that they indeed had come in nineteen the testes using boasts a specificity of ninety nine percent which means it only falsely says a blood sample has antibodies when it doesn't just one percent of the time but despite that impressive statistic a test like this is not ninety nine percent correct and in fact in some circumstances could be much much worse that's because of this counter intuitive fact the validity of a test depends not only on the test itself but oddly on how common the diseases in the population you're sampling it is kind of a strange thing Dr Gilbert Welch is a scientist at Brigham and women's hospital in Boston hi antibody test is much more likely to be wrong in in the population with very little code the Greeks Boettcher Richard I think we need to slow down here why with the accuracy of a test depend on how common the disease is in a population yeah that it's surprising but here's a simple way to look at it say you are running a test it gives five falsely positive results in a hundred people sounds like pretty good odds right but yeah but consider this Steve if five percent of our population is infected then you run the test on a hundred people you should get five true positives but you also have those filed false positives well says there's no way to know which is which the test will be wrong half the time half the people will be falsely reassured so it's basically a coin flip and it gets worse the food and drug administration does not regulate these tests but the White House coronavirus task force set in informal standard they're supposed to have no more than ten false positives per hundred if you were to use a test that meets that standard in a population where only one percent of the population had been infected with rotavirus a positive result would be wrong a shocking amount more than nine times out of ten and you can see that one way to limit this problem is to focus on populations with the disease is more common Dr Jordan laser a pathologist at Northwell health on Long Island New York says it would make sense to start with health care workers should be wonderful for health care workers to know their immune status and give them just a peace of mind even so laser says it would still be a mistake to rely on these results definitely don't use these tests to change your practices in terms of personal protective equipment definitely do not become more comfortable in doing your job and taking care of complications it really would be more of a psychological benefit but you know these tests can still be incredibly useful as long as individual false positive results don't matter and one situation with that is the case is serving a broad populations and in fact these tests will be used to figure out just where
The Grand Canyon
"Have you ever heard of the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is the Whitest Canyon in the world and located in Arizona which also happens to be my home state. It's also considered one of the seven natural wonders of the world. The Grand Canyon is two hundred seventy seven miles long up to eighteen miles wide in over six thousand feet deep in places. It's very colorful a combination of reds browns whites and many other colors because each of the different layers or strata were formed at different times during the Earth's history. The Earth is very very old so the Grand Canyon is made up of different rocks from its two billion year old history early on the Grand Canyon was actually a mountain which overtime sunk down until it was flat. Then is the earth shifted. It became a canyon and over a very long period was even underwater. Eventually a river started flowing through the Canyon which is now known as the Colorado River. The water in the river was full of rocks. So over. Millions of years the river acted like sandpaper. Shaving down the canyon this is called erosion today. When you look at the Grand Canyon you can see the different layers in it similar to a layered cake. Some of the layers are white. Limestone other layers are filled with shells from was underwater and the upper layers are dark and reformed by a volcano after the Grand Canyon was formed into what it looks like today around three thousand years ago native people who now call the ancestral publians live near the Grand Canyon. They built homes out of stone and farmed corn squash and beans. They made carvings and paintings on Canyon walls which is one way we know they live there. Another group who lived there were called the co Nina for the ancestors of the modern Yuma Havasu Pie and who a lot by people who still live around the Grand Canyon. The native people call the Grand Canyon. Cab which means mountain on its side. The ancient people believed the Grand Canyon was a holy place and often visited for miles around to experience. It's wonder after Europeans discovered the new World Francisco Vasquez Coronado and a group of Spanish explorers were in the area. Searching for the fabled seven cities of Cipolla in fifteen forty Coronado ordered captain Garcia Lopez de Cardenas and. His soldiers to explore the area they and their Hopi native guides where the first European to see the wonders of the Grand Canyon. They were amazed at its size and fastness. Two hundred years passed until another European visited the canyon in seventeen seventy six to Spanish priests Francisco Dominguez and Sylvester de Escalate into explored southern Utah and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and the eighteen fifties. They were followed. By Jacob Hamlin a Mormon explorer sent by Brigham Young to find a way to cross the river. They made friends with the WHO a lot by tribe and found the crossing discovered by the Spanish priests which later became Lee's ferry. A theory is a place where a flat boat helps wagons and people cross the river then in eighteen sixty nine major John. Wesley Powell led the first expedition down into the Canyon. He had set out to explore the Colorado River and the Canyon. They wrote down the river on a boat and survived the dangerous rapids and finally ended up in what is now known as MOAB UTAH. John Wesley Powell later became famous for the founding of the Boy Scouts of America. In one thousand nine hundred three. President Theodore Roosevelt visited the Grand Canyon and marveled at its beauty. Teddy Roosevelt was known for his love of nature and spent much of his time outdoors in the Grand Canyon. He did everything he could to help. Preserve its natural. Wonder he worked to make it a national monument and believe places like the Grand Canyon should be preserved so people all over the world can enjoy it. All Roosevelt was president. He formed the National Parks Association to help. Save places like the Grand Canyon today. The Grand Canyon is one of the most famous places to visit in the world with about five million visitors every year. Who come from all over to see and explore it. Most people just come to look out over the vast canyon. I've been there a few times with my family. It's about a four hour. Drive from US where we live near Phoenix Arizona. The last time I went we brought our foreign kids who also looked out over it in awe. We had to hold them close to us because the canyon is a very steep drop below which made us very nervous. When I was in high school our family and a group of other families hiked down into the part of the canyon known as Havasu Pie. We drove there early in the morning and had all of our camping gear and food loaded onto the back of mules. Then we hiked about four hours down into the Canyon at the bottom of the trail. The huge picturesque Havasu falls. You can swim at the falls. Jump off cliffs and hike further into see and swim in the waterfalls. Our trip was very fun but took a turn for the worse when one of the days I slept on Iraq and twisted my ankle pretty bad the next day we were supposed to hike out so my close friend. I got up early and started hiking. I live most of the way. Even up the steep switch-backs. It was a rough hike out but the waterfalls and swimming holes made it worth it anyway along with hiking people take helicopter tours over the Grand Canyon love to raft the Wild Colorado River. They also take horseback tours down into the Canyon. And it's very popular. Hike it from Rim Durham. By sisters in their friends. Do this recently. Another main attraction is the Grand Canyon. Skywalk which lets you walk on a glass bottom path out over the canyon so you can look at the drop far
Dr. Atul Gawande: We need a national shelter-in-place
"As Corona virus cases flood the United States Healthcare System orderlies nurses and doctors are taking extra steps and making harder decisions as they maintain. The health of the American public are highlight guests. Today on the pod is one of those essential care workers dr a tool. Gwanda of Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston he's written about those decisions and crucial methodologies in two of his books the checklist manifesto and being mortal both should definitely be on your isolation bookshelf. They're fantastic. He's a surgeon a staff writer for the New Yorker Andy's the CEO of haven the new and still quiet joint health care venture between J. P. Morgan Amazon and Berkshire Hathaway back in two thousand eighteen. That venture was just getting off the ground. Jp Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon and Berkshire CEO. Warren Buffet told our own becky. Quick about their chosen leader for the new venture at the time. Dr Gomez identity was mystery. Oh and the Jeff. You'll hear Warren Buffett Mention Jeff bezos. We have the right CEO. I'm very enthused about it. I Know Gay me and Jeff are to have. We have announced any individual character culture capability. Heart mind the whole thing now. Of course we know who that individual is and we were privileged to hear from him this morning on Squawk box. Here's Becky quick. Kicking off the conversation with a tool. Gwanda doctor go on day. Thank you for being with us today. Glad to be here you wrote an article for the New Yorker. That really caught our attention and I was hoping you could shed a little light on. What's happening here? You talked about what happened in China. How their first response in Wuhan failed but how they came back so much stronger and really managed to contain things when you talk a little bit about those extreme measures that they took and whether or not. You think we can do that here. Well there was China including than Hong Kong reacting than Singapore and there are lessons coming from all of Asia that suggests there's a few critical elements. First of all you got to recognize. This is a national epidemic and we haven't woken up to that. I'm worried I'm worried about what's emerging in a bunch of cities not just in New York. We'RE TALKING NEW ORLEANS. Atlanta DALLAS MIAMI DETROIT PHILADELPHIA. Chicago are death. Poker curve is now worse than when China was at the same stage. We have twelve states with more than fifteen hundred cases. China had won province so on you know what what works on the flip side. Washington state is flattening the death toll curve and there are some key steps borrowed from that experience in Asia shelter in place which some states are doing. We are about twenty. We don't have the others on board. And we need it really a national shelter in place. It's physical distancing and really being critical about that it's testing tracing contacts and then there's work to do recognize hospitals cannot become sources of infection. And we've got to make that not happen like it's happening in Italy and Spain. How do we do that? Well the the lesson out of Singapore and Hong Kong in particular that I drove into. And you're seeing IT AND SOUTH KOREA'S WELLS. There's a playbook and the playbook includes that healthcare workers when they come into work. They have a daily symptom check to make sure they don't have symptoms of covert nineteen. They go home if they don't and they have a surgical mask From the moment that they come into work in throughout the day taking care of any patients. That's not just because you keep them from getting affected. It's that they're picking up infections in the community and they see it keeps them from spreading infection to others and that's and that's really the critical thing another another part of their playbook which I think is really interesting. They found that they did not have to automatically quarantine staff workers when they were exposed to a corona virus patient. They only needed to Corentin in Singapore. They did it only if it was greater than thirty minutes at less than six feet from the person for If you didn't have a surgical mask and otherwise people kept going. And they had no transmissions in the healthcare space and I think healthcare turns out to be so important because we're learning now. What keeps healthcare workers safe? That's going to show us how we can get everybody back to work safely in Italy. I read that something like eight point. Three percent of the cases that they've reported have been healthcare workers. They're not doing any of that. They weren't doing this and And Not really committing to it. Frankly we haven't been doing it either. Right as of I wrote this article about a week ago today We now have most hospitals starting to flip into taking these core measures. But but it's still way too slow in the hospital setting. We need to have that process where you know when you come into work. You are checked for an asked. Do you have have you had had a feeling of fever today. Have you had a call new cough new shortness of breath? New Loss of taste is be turned out to be a potential indicator of Kovin. It's turning up as a as a problem and Any new muscle aches. And if you do you stay home. you have to Self to self isolate for a period of time. What we should do is be able to offer tests and more and more places are able to offer healthcare workers tests so they know if If they really can come back that that part is critical and then having masks while we're while we're at work supplies are critical issue. So in some places we have to ration the masks in my hospital I get one mask for the day and and that's and that's the way it's gotTa work. Dr Go onto one of the questions I wanted to ask you is. There is a conversation happening in financial circles and in the White House about the cure being worse than the disease. And I'm hoping you can speak to that from medical perspective but also from an economic perspective because some people look at this and say if there is a financial crisis that is lasting their health impacts from that. How do you think about that? I know you spent a lot of time thinking about all of this in a national epidemic Where it's picking up speed in places that haven't had it. The economic damage is going to be worse. If we don't lockdown understand that there's this talk like you know it's only the elderly and the and the frail who get sick They are at risk of dying but look at people just middle aged forty five years old. A quarter of them need to be hospitalized. In order to survive when they have this virus and about five to ten percent of them need to be on a ventilator for days you have this sweep through infect sixty million people. We're done we will not be able to have those people Forget getting them back to work. We will not have those people come through and survive if we can't actually take care of them so you know the idea that that this is that you know maybe we should just go back to work And and this will all be fine and just just let those old folks get sick. Or maybe we'll quarantine the nursing homes. That's not GonNa do it. Doctor mentioned the shortage that we have when it when it comes to supplies What about the potential shortage when it comes to healthcare workers either? Those who get self quarantined those who get the virus. Those who don't feel comfortable working in that environment because they're afraid of exposing their family. Yeah I mean here in Boston. We have more than one hundred healthcare workers who tested positive largely from virtually all from picking it up in the community. But we're finding that the practices that you borrow those from Singapore and Hong Kong. They're able to keep spread from happening. They're able to keep the workers safe the critical things that we gotta have our Masks and gloves and those are so far. We've got supply for the next few days. I see the supply chains continuing to improve. There's there's been this lag we didn't get on it early enough And so when I talked to the manufacturers I talked to the to the government officials were seeing that there is product. Getting into the pipeline. And then you know it's distribution is imperfect we will get through it but the next couple of weeks are not going to be great and so yes we have to make sure. Those healthcare workers are priority. If you have masks any any of your business get them into your

Too Much Manure, Salt in Soils, and A Plant Threesome
"We are talking about too much manure Salton soils and plant threesome. That sounds rather risque. Ceo But let's start out with A. Did you know segment because this is from the world of Plant? Science? You know. I'm always interested in finding out what research is going on. All around the world in terms of plants and I read a very interesting article recently about the work. That's going on in how we might be able to grow plants in very salty soils. Yeah and it was interesting to me that this work is being spearheaded by the researchers at Brigham Young University and that makes sense to me because Utah is the second driest state in the nation. And it's often in places where there is not a lot of precipitation that minerals build up in the soil that salts build up in the soil and that agriculture can be a real challenge because a lot of plants are not happy growing in soils where these salts have accumulated. Yes and places up north. For instance where roads are continually salted and that whole salt washes off into soils places that are near ocean or were formerly under ocean or are periodically you know flooded with ocean water. The salt level can build up there. So what this research was doing is very interesting. They were isolating different bacteria and some of those bacteria can tolerate ocean level salt content and so what they found up found out was by isolating that bacteria and then introducing it to a crop so that the bacteria can colonize on the plants roots. They were able to make that plant. Also be salt tolerant. See and what I WANNA know is first of all. That's just amazing to me and I want to know. How did they think about doing this? How did they? How did they get the germ of the idea? That's made them say. Hey let's see if bacteria inoculated into the root system. We'll help these plants. I mean you and I both know that plants in the Legume family often can capture nitrogen from the atmosphere and then returned to the soil. And I know that that's done by some kind of bacteria in the root nodules. So I'm guessing. That's what gave them the impetus to think about this but my hats are off to those researchers who are are really thinking outside the box for something like this absolutely fascinating about what's going on in our universities and with the plant science world a good reminder that whether you're interested in plant science or not it's essential research if we're going to keep feeding and sustaining our ever growing population. Co for our true or false segment. Today I would like to tackle the Gulf Shoe Lawn Aeration Myth. Is it true that you can improve the aeration in your lawn soil compaction and get that grass growing again growing really well by ordering yourself a pair of golf shoes and walking around on your lawn in them? What do you think? I think that's probably a waste of money unless you're also played on your lawn. Yeah Anomaly People. They actually sell online not golf shoes but like Special Lawn. Aeration shoes yes. Spike spikes or shoot bottoms. Actually that have spikes first of all. They looked dangerous. You could just really pierce. You're totally major way with those spikes but golf shoes have very small projections anyway and not only does it not aerate lawn it can actually make lawn compaction worse because instead of removing a piece of the soil and creating a whole it pushes soil harder together exactly if people just thought about it they would understand that by pushing in that whole you are increasing the compaction. That's soil has to go somewhere. This is just a commonsense one to me. Yeah comments when but one that you know people are always looking for something a little bit different and a little bit clever and people like the weird in the whack must. It's a lot easier to strap. A pair of spiky sandals on top of your shoes than it is to rent a real soil aerator. We should point out that a true soil. Aerator doesn't just make holes in the soil it actually removes cores of soil. And that does you might get a little compaction from the weight of the aerator but basically it's removing soil and so that's GonNa give more airspaces and that's why that works and the Gulf shoe doesn't so if you want to aerate your soil rent one of the machines and save those golf shoes for the golf

But before he was executed. But after his brutal betrayal by Brigham Young Lee wrote not a biography in which he spilled some bloody beans. Here is a remembrance of one of what was likely a large number of unrecorded secretive. Blood atonement s- blood atoning 's. So wait, you say it's a record a record of unrecorded, but atonement. Yeah, I really tripped on my dick on that one that that error might actually qualify for my own blood atonement. And I'm quoting Jonny Lee here the most deadly sin among the people was adultery and many men were killed in Utah for that crime. Ross Mus Anderson was a Danish man who had come to Utah. He had married a widow lady and she had a daughter that was fully grown at the time of the reformation. The reformation is basically when the Mormons arrived in Utah were setting up their their theocracy. The girl was very anxious to be sealed to her stepfather at one of the meetings during the reformation Anderson and his stepdaughter confessed that they had committed adultery. Oh, shit, believing when they did so that Brigham Young would allow them to marry after they confessed. When he learned the facts, their confession being full, they were rebaptized and received into full membership. Oh, they were then placed under covenant that if they again committed adultery, Anderson should suffer death. Soon after this soon after this a charge was laid against Anderson before the council accusing him of adultery. With his stepdaughter. This coun-. Sle was comprised of some guys Smith, his to counselors. It was the bishops council without giving Anderson any chance to defend himself or make a statement the council voted that Anderson must die for violating his covenants. Klingensmith went to Anderson and notified him that the orders were that he must die by having his throat cut so that the running of his blood would atone for his sins Anderson being a firm believer in the doctrines and teachings of the Mormon church made no objections, but asked for half a day to prepare for death, holy shit. His request was granted. His wife was ordered to prepare suit of clean clothing in which to have her husband buried and was informed that he was to be killed for his sins, and she was directed to tell those who should inquire after her husband that he had gone to California. Oh, wow. Wow. That's interesting. Yeah, so they would've would've fun little wrinkle. So she was she was coerced into the cover up of her own. Murder. Klingensmith. James has limb Daniel McFarland and John M higby whoever the fuck. They were dug a grave in the field near cedar City, Utah, and that night about twelve o'clock when Anderson's house, they went to Anderson's house and ordered him to make ready to obey the council Anderson got up, dressed himself bit. His family, goodbye grabbed his best javelin. Just shaved his throat. So it was nice and clean only get an infection, no right on and without a word of of remonstrance accompanied those that he believed were carrying out the will of almighty God. They went to the place where the grave was prepared Anderson knelt on the side of the grave and prayed Klingensmith and his company then cut Anderson's throat from ear to ear and held him so that his blood ran into the graph then goes on to talk about how they dressed him in his funeral clothes than they toss them in the grave. They didn't dress him. I know because they'd be bloody. You can't bury a bloody guy in a bloody suit. What are we monsters? Dick moved would be it would be barbarism of the highest order. It's true, and because they were such civilized men, they took the bloody clothes back and ordered his wife to wash them. Yup. Because you know what's room on the porch..

Yeah, he imagined we should go to his grave after this and have a little chat with him about, you know, scientific understanding of the origins of human species. But anyway, we'll, let's leave the racism aside for a second is fun as it is. Yeah. And let's and it was racism really was the foundational animus that the real father of modern Mormonism Brigham Young was also motivated by it seems that the most common charge for those who were in one way or another blood atoned was adultery. So too little side Jonny Lee was a super important character in the early church in the founding of what was going to be the kingdom of the west. He was involved in a massacre of over one hundred twenty Arkansas pioneers who were headed west through Utah, nineteen fifty, seven. We're gonna talk about that. It's a long story that we're going to cover another time. But for the sake of brevity, this mass murderer can also trace its motivations to the principle of blood atonement. It's believed Brigham Young, ordered the extermination, and that is trusted Lieutenant Jonny Lee carried it out, but whatever happened, the feds came snooping around, of course and escape. Goat was required in short order. John D Lee was himself blood atoned shot by firing squad as he sat on the edge of his coffin. That is just smart thinking. Nobody has to move him into it.

Achilleas cheat on me and and he continues, there's not a man or woman who violates the covenants made with their God that will not be required to pay the debt.

That's not covered no, the in Christ's atonement, no, which by the way for those of you who have never been to a Mormon church, God bless you. Don't really don't keep that streak alive, but for those of you don't know these people talk constantly about how grateful they are for Jesus as tone. Yeah, like they will not shut up about it so apparent, but apparently doesn't cover much. It's woefully inadequate. This is a pathetic -ly, bad atonement. I think it covers like wire fraud and aggravated jaywalk. It's your basic warranty, right? Yes. Decapitation as part of the extended warranty. Loyd where prohibited this is, does not cover certain things. See your dealer for details. Let's let's the fine print. Let's go back to brother, Brigham, shall we? Because he's, he's really provided nothing, but and he's such a peach peach. Remember when I said that miscalculation, the mixing of the races was punishable by classical murder. I do remember when you you. Dear listeners were probably like no way uncle Mark. That's too crazy to be true. I present dear listeners, prophet, Brigham Young himself, and I quote. What did we get mixed up in. Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race that that is nothing good is going? No, no, no. Anyone ever says that. Doc, you're doing sort of Louis Farrakhan says those words, something horrible. This is the fundamentalist nineteenth century, Mormon version of, I'm not a racist, but. And he continues if the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seat of Cain, the penalty under the law of God is death on the spot. This will always be so always you're saying Richard Spencer is a Mormon he, we'd be very comfortable yet. It'd be very comfortable at least similar haircuts, at least in Brigham Young's Mormonism. So Brigham Young taught that in the case of miscalculation with blacks, the children of that union should also be blood atoned. Jesus, meaning that children should be fucking murdered. Wilford Woodruff who became the fourth president of the Mormon church recorded in his journal, an address delivered by Brigham Young in eighteen fifty two. In this address, we find the following any man having one drop of the seat of Cain in him cannot hold the priesthood. I will say it now in the name of Jesus Christ. I know it's true and they know it. The negro cannot hold one particle of government. If any man mingles seed with the seat of Cain, the the only way. He could get rid of it is to have Salvin and have salvation would be to come forward and have his head cut off and spill his blood on the ground. It would also take the life of his children, jeez. Well way, though if he does have his head cut off, can you get the priesthood? Then he can be he can. He can receive exultation, go hard. It is to cut up. Someone's head with javelin. Poke it.

"Just myth bizarrely claimed that the apostle Peter from the bible had appeared to him to tell him that Judas had not hung himself as the biblical account would have as believe, but that Peter and the other apostles had killed him, oh, to atone for betraying Jesus. Did you know that it's a phrase it heater was like Joseph wake up. I forgot to tell you, hey, just quick f y, you gotta hear. This was hilarious before you go seat promises short. No, you hang up. So in eighteen fifty, seven Hieber seek Kimball a member of the first presidency of the church at the time. And one of the top three leaders confirmed this vengeful act of extra judicial, lex talionis. That's actually a legal term, meaning a retr- retribution punishment, matching the nature of the crime. Oh, say it again. Lex talionis. Cool. Yeah, lex. Luther is look at brains on Mark. That the the apostles applied this crazy thing and he, he talked about it in a speech at general conference, and I quote he perceived Kimball here. Judas lost that saving principle. He did not say, and that loving feeling and they took him and killed him. It said that his bowels gushed out. Feeding. The other apostles kicked him until his bowels came out. I know the day is right at hand when men will forfeit their priesthood and turn against us and against the covenants they have made, and they will be destroyed as Judas was. I see. So the other eleven apostles kicked him to pieces. Yeah, is the idea here history's first curb stomping. Somebody needs to invent a knife for these guys because that's a way better than a lot of work, especially with sandal, yeah, a sandal foot, yet steel toes, though you sharpen those sandals up sandal gonna get a nice clean cut a tend to be good. It's going to be. It's going to be merciful for everyone. Yeah, yeah. So this bizarre reworking of the events surrounding the biblical account of the crucifixion is credited with being the origin of Mormon, blood atonement. In addition, the book of Mormon account of knee decapitating the unconscious Laban has discussed. An episode forty-three at God's command has also frequently been cited by people when they have practiced blood atonement. Just a year prior to Hebrew Kimball speech, here's the prophet himself, Brigham Young, explaining the principal in no uncertain terms. Okay. And I quote it is true that the blood of the son of God was shed for sins through the fall, and those committed by men yet men can commit sins which can never meant there are sins that can be atoned for by an offering upon an altar as in ancient days as there are sins that the blood of a lamb or a calf or turtle doves and all the other five days of twelve days of Christmas cannot remit, but they must be atoned for by the blood of the man. This is the reason why men talked to you as they do from the stand. They understand the doctrine and throw a few words about it in another sermon. Brigham Young made it plain. I'd never had this before that a man could blood atone his own wife. Of course again, because you know, against support the patriarchy by allowing a guy to murder his wife every now and not not surprised by that one, not surprise well, especially when you have fifty. Five. It's not letting run out of wives, right? Exactly. But every now and then you're going to want to get rid of one or two of them. Let let and I quote, let me suppose a case. Suppose you found your brother in bed with your wife and put a javelin through both of them challenging. Where the fuck you gotta stay right there. I've got a run down to shed and find my javelin go to the sports cupboard. Discus. Well, it'll it'll have to do. If you put a javelin through them, I continue.

Brittle fucking bloodletting and guts spilling. Yeah, but they only got rid of the ritual part. They didn't get rid of the real part. So anyway. And also what animated probably mated Brigham Young sense of vengeance was the murder of his beloved prophet. Joseph Smith probably turned his bloodlust up to eleven so lucky for him. Josaphat already laid the doctrinal pipe to pump all of this blood through. So as Joseph imagined it and Brigham Young codified, it Mormon, blood atonement was a mechanism for saving the soul of a person who had sinned, the end, the redemptive qualities of Jesus's blood. We're not enough to to sort him out in the next life. So these can only bleed so much. He's one guy. He is a, there's a line not good enough. He is paragraph seven. Most abundantly haemophiliac Jew of all. So the centers owned blood must be spilled all of it basically, or at least enough until they're dead to save their soul beyond the veil. It's an extra judicial theocratic murder by vigilantes after a secret vote by church elders, and it's considered an act of love. It's actually considered an act of murder. They call it redemption. And as I'm sure you'll go into it, can't just be you can't poison them. No, hang them, right. And that's why I gotta believe the church was not super happy about hanging being choice in the early years of of the state as capital punishment because it didn't properly Zil your blood and didn't bleed them, didn't blade him. So what crimes are so heinous that Jesus himself cannot forgive you while most obviously in most confusingly murder since expiating that's in also involves murder, but also the most egregious crime miscalculation. The absolutely forbidden mixing of the perfect white race with any son or daughter of Kane, really meaning black people that is by far the worst holy shit, Brigham Young, and I will expound on this was the worst crime you could possibly commit. And if you don't believe me those more on that in a. Gif, but also you could be blood atone for blasphemy, apostasy. We're all fucked. Adultery theft. I'm fucked. Again, fornication fucked naturally and naturally expressing satisfaction or happiness about the murder of Joseph Smith. Just saying, I'm glad he's dead to get you decapitated. So Joseph Smith bizarrely claimed this is I had never heard this before..

"So more in, I kind of stuff I for nine so well, Mormonism certainly does lean heavily on Jesus and the books of the New Testament. The heart of Mormonism lies very much in the bloodiest tales of punishment and revenge in the Old Testament, as Dan said is for is to for Tooth's and blood for blood. The term blood atonement doesn't appear anywhere of. Surprisingly in the four accepted books of Mormon canon interesting. The term blood atonement. The idea is there, but not as you know, not codified in the term. So terms like blood for blood and spilled blood cries out for retribution do appear in the books. The book of Mormon also states that the law of Moses demands capital punishment for the crime of murder. Quick aside for any new or never more listeners who are not familiar with the book of Mormon. The Boorman is a fictional fever dream written by Joseph Smith. It claims to be an account of ancient America in the time of Christ. And in the years following it is a laugh. Ably unsupported unsupportable work of bad faith. In short native Americans are not descended from Israelites who bobbed to Guatemala in a flotilla of unpowered wooden submarines with corks in the bottom and magic glowing rocks for reading lights inside all those absurdities and more our truth claims in the book of Mormon. So that's how seriously you should take any command for capital punishment. And again for never Mormon listeners. The author of this book of balderdash and the founder of Mormonism is Joseph Smith. Yeah. In his many graphs and plagiarisms he either misunderstood the New Testament point about the proxy blood of Jesus and bloodshed generally or just Foley ignored it in favor of creating a new extrajudicial mega mechanism for forcing his will on his taciturn flock. So either way the the big. Dimissed polygamist borrower and coarser of other men's wives and their young daughters and all their property found himself very much blood atoned by a furious mob of his ex followers at the Carthage, Illinois jail in June of eighteen forty four. Ain't that the truth. His cell was attacked shots from hidden guns were fired, and I believe Han shot first, yeah, and Joseph fell out the window and crawled to lean against a well as his blood poured out onto the ground in an irony that he probably was able to appreciate I hope in. So that's so none of that was it was appreciated by him at all. And then our story takes in even bloodier turn because the second prophet and president of the church who took over after a brief power struggle was none other than Brigham Young, the Stalin of Mormonism. Yeah, slash miscarriage. Mormonism both. Why such a pattern isn't it? One hundred percents. So both Joseph and Brigham Young were were fervent proponents of blood blood atonement, but Brigham was the fervent her. Vengeance would become one of Brigham Young's defining characteristics, and if you don't believe me another time, we can talk about the oath of vengeance. He added to the novel temple ceremony, a ceremony that already included ritual murder gestures of slicing throats and spilling guts. Just gestures though, just come on guys, calm down, actually, murdering people in the temple that we know this is a little bit of theater..

"Yeah, it so I'm glad you did a trigger warning though, because as we found out last week, there are actually kids who listen to this show. Yeah, so yeah. And you know what, though, I mean, blanket trigger warning. Yeah, on the show. I don't know why. Why we're separating this show from episode. We should just call it the trigger warning with Mark and Dan and Doug. That's right. Spinoff show. All right. So you know when when our listeners outside the beehive state think of of Utah, we always do. They're constantly thinking of their dear uncle 's, but maybe they think about the skiing or maybe they're aware of the skiing. Sure. Greatest snow on earth by maybe maybe if they're of a generation, they think about the osmond's or certainly Mitt Romney. Yeah, although mitts not he's a, he's a an alien to Harvard baggers with the call here. Now where's his birth certificate. So you know, that's those two people to groups are just a human ocean of gleaming white teeth, right? And and and maybe they think about our friends the Mormons, of course, because that's what everybody knows about Utah. Yeah, and they likely imagine a bland anodyne place. That's a land of casseroles and over large blonde families, admiring hand made quilts at a country fair perhaps. Yes, but they're not wrong. That's all true. But what they made on, imagine as that Utah was the only state to have beheading, yes, beheading as a legal form of deterrence on the books and that Utah, not only happily maintains the practice of capital punishment, but kept death by firing squad on the books until two thousand four and the last bound blindfolded person to be legally shot at close range by four men in Utah was in two thousand ten because his request was grandfathered in. Yeah, so of it, what? What in the world could possibly explain people? So. Squeaky squeaky-clean outwardly joyful maintaining so primitive and violent set of practices. You know, uncle Dan, yes, sir, blood atonement, blood atonement. How is that a thing? So today's magic word, fuck you say in the Sigrid cow category is Mormon blood atonement. So the seeds of what would become more than blood atonement lay throughout the New Testament. Sure, by accepting the divinity of Jesus and the proxy human sacrifice and the blood of the son of God, there's a path to redemption and the forgiveness of sins by accepting the the shedding of Jesus's blood, your sins may be forgiven. And when you think about it, it's a super weird concept. It's a disastrous concept. It's a super weird concept, but it's one that is so foundational Christianity and it's been around for so long. Kind of doesn't feel like a crazy idea. They don't even question it. We don't even question it even those crazy. Fuck it's so stupid. It's like. Doug Stanhope said stub. My toe for your mortgage right? And yet, thanks question Mark. He died for our sins yet we can still send it, doesn't it? And it's human sacrifice, and it's every fucked up stupid thing in the world. Oh, but that is the Christian concept? Yes, right, very important. It's the foundational Christian. It is just it's Christianity is still down to a single sentence, right? Pretty much. So as you see the Mormons took this concept in a in a sort of different direction, and there's some really surprising moments in here. Alyssa water. All this blood is making me thirsty. Mormonism at its root is what's called a restoration est faith. Indeed, a movement that is also described as Christian primitivism lucky for those of us who grew up in it. It's the idea that Christianity must return to its earliest most primitive principles and the original apostolic structure of the church. So Joseph, myth and Brigham Young and the rest of the early church elders were always speaking about a return to biblical habits, temple building. Sure polygamy polygamy, right, total theocracy and re retribution of punishments for crimes. Sure..
