But the, the door, the sliding window door was still open. Now, I thought, okay. Can we get her in the bath? So, I brought it a little bit in the next time, and she actually came in just a step. But now, as I tried to close the door behind her. Okay, non-threatening lie, but just in a way so that we could establish it. She could come in the house. She panicked a little bit and started to but as soon as I saw her do that, I pulled the door open wider. So she knew there was no threat. So again, she was a foot in the house and and then I am closed it. She was fine. And what it really was was the understanding that it's not that she, she wanted to leave. She just wanted to know, she could leave home, and that's actually a very basic principle, not just of animal nature, but of human nature as human beings. One of our driving forces within us is autonomy Freedom. The ability to call our shots to know, our lives are ours, that we make the ultimate decisions for ourselves. One of the things I teach in the book, which we learn through the Liberty song. Is what I call the out, where the back door and that is too. When you're looking to persuade someone or influence them to take on a different idea, thought position. Whatever it happens to be home is do always leave them a backdoor. Never have them feel pressured as though they have to say this or that, or they have to do this or that, or they have to commit to this, that? Okay. We need to always give a back door so that they understand that they're that they're not being asked to comply. It's not push instead. It's pull. And you know what? I called birds law of the out, or back door assembly that the bigger, the outdoor, backdoor, you give someone to take the, the, the greater, the chances are, they will not have the need to use it. So I don't give someone the outdoor back door so that they take it although if they want to, they will which is up to them, know you give them the back door so that they feel comfortable enough with you and.

A Pandemic Winner: How Zoom Beat Tech Giants To Dominate Video Chat
"Roughly one year ago. I heard colleagues referred to a meeting on zoom. It was one of those passing references where people assume you already know what they mean. But i didn't. I literally never heard of the brand within a few days. Of course i knew as did millions of others who likely had not known before. Zoom is by no means the only way for a video meeting but the company has come out ahead during the pandemic zoom is among npr's financial supporters. And we cover it like any other company. Npr's shannon bond has the company's pandemic story chief financial officer kelly steckel berg vividly remembers one specific date. Last spring march fifteenth. Last year was the day when everything changed. Its like we woke up and almost overnight that demand grew exponential demand from companies. Trying to keep running after sending everybody home. School setting up virtual classrooms then. The floodgates opened here at npr weeded stories about fitness classes. Moving to zoom. You're going to need a broom towel. Happy hours complete with drinking games. We figured out rules for virtual beer. Pong one of our producers watched her sister get married over zoom. You may now feel your ballot. Chests by april zoom meetings were attracting three hundred million participants a day thirty times the amount just a few months before zoom was an upstart and it was going up against products from giants like google and microsoft which are both npr supporters. So how did zoom beat these heavyweights real richness to simply way easier. Jason freed is ceo of base camp. A company that makes remote work software. He told me over his preferred app. Skype he's been working remotely for two decades. He says zoom made sending a meeting link as easy as sharing a youtube video open room. You get a you moral you. Send the url around people. That's it unlike. Other video meetings people you invite to zoom. don't have to log in or download. Software freed says that simplicity meant even though. The app was intended for companies. It was really easy for everyone else to use to but zoom was so popular and convenient. It had a downside. The fbi warning about zoom bombing intruders has started crashing zoom meetings because security was so lax townhall school classes. Aa meetings. were all targets. Dennis johnson knows all about this last march. He was defending his doctoral. Dissertation on zoom in front of family and friends with an unknown attacker scrawled racial slurs genitalia on the screen. A year later johnson still avoid zoom when he can every time. Somebody called me. Dr arteaga On so it just like a nasty taste in my mouth. Researchers uncovered other security and privacy flaws zoom told users meetings were fully encrypted when they weren't the company admitted shut down the accounts of activists in china after pressure from the government. Zoom went into damage control mode. It put everything except privacy insecurity on pause for three months and it reached settlements with federal and state regulators investigating the issues. Stucco burg's zoom. Cfo says the episode was a wakeup call. It was a humbling experience for all of us but we learned a lot through it and we have come out on the other side at a stronger a better company with a stronger and more secure platform now. After a year of daily life and major milestones conducted over zoom what happens when people get vaccinated and can go back to seeing each other face to face. Daniel ives as an analyst at wedbush securities there could be a roaring twenties type field.

J&J COVID-19 vaccine could get FDA approval within days
"The fda is getting ready to authorize a third covid vaccine emergency use in this country. This one this vaccine is from pharmaceutical giant. Johnson and johnson. And if it's authorized it would join vaccines from pfizer and madera in the us vaccination campaign. But here's the thing those other. Vaccines require two doses. This vaccine from johnson and johnson needs only one single dose to be effective. Npr science correspondent. Joe palca is here to tell us how effective good morning joe morning. well one dose. that's exciting. How good is this new vaccine. Oh it's good. It was sixty six percent effect of overall in preventing moderate to severe disease and eighty five percent protective against more severe diseases. Now for people with good memories. They'll say wait. A minute i heard that madonna and pfizer wasn't that closer to ninety five percent effective and the answer is yes they were higher but those vaccines were tested before. Some of the new variants began circulating and prevent any five percent of severe critical. Disease is really good since the goal of the vaccines is to keep people out of the hospital and keep them from dying and the other thing about this vaccine is mentioned in the intro is that it's one dose which makes the logistics of getting it to people a lot easier to remember to come back so public. Health officials are looking forward to being able to distribute the j. vaccine. This is how anthony fauci chief medical adviser to the president. Put it on. Nbc's today show to have them come in and be in the mix with the other. Two is is nothing but good news. Nothing but good news. Foul cheat now. The process usually is before a vaccine gets authorized in advisory board has to approve it right. Well yes well. Though he has to is probably an exaggeration. It doesn't absolutely has to. The fda can approve things on its own lookout but like the other two vaccines. The the fda wanted to be extremely transparent. There were some questions about whether they were rushing the vaccine to the market before they knew it was safe and they want to assure the public that this was being looked at carefully so that committee has been around for a while. it's known in the trade as burg. Pack the vaccines and related biological products. Advisory committee i love that name ver- pack made of scientists and doctors with a variety of specialization relating vaccines before the meeting. Fda provides the committee with its analysis and they also make that analysis of the public So i asked. Bruce gallon president of global immunization at sabin vaccine institute. What he made of the analysis of the johnson and johnson vaccine. I didn't see anything in it. That i would think is going to be a show stopper for packed. Wanna recommend that. Fda act on so gallon is predicting the ver- pack will give the vaccine a thumbs up. How many doses. Johnson and johnson have ready to ship out. Well not as many as people had hoped a year ago when started trying to make these vaccines they all said. All we're gonna do this at risk manufacturing which means we're going to start making vaccine before they even knew it was going to be authorized even if it worked. And then they'd throw away if it didn't work and the government gave the money to do this but even with that company's still don't have the kind of inventory. The country needs in the case of johnson. Johnson they have about four million doses ready to go out the door and expect to have twenty million by the end of march and one hundred million by the end of june and remember. This is a one dose vaccine so one hundred million doses is one hundred million people vaccinated which is very big. Deal leslie and briefly. What is the timeline here. When the fda issued the emergency use authorization it could be any minute. I mean they knew it right after the meeting. They could do it tomorrow. That could do it in a few days. It'll be soon. I think if the committee gives a thumbs

Oh during the three-day seclusion It is very common to not eat. Meat consume alcohol or have sex. You don't do those things you don't do those things. And the result supposedly of this three day ceremony is just a complete marathon of Symbolic dreams that the african dream root is also used by host shaman as a healing agent and as a healing agent it includes the treatment of mental disturbances and also the improvement of memory and apparently the dream route can make you throw up which is considered a mental and physical purging. So if you throw up while drinking. This frothy mixture of african dream root Than it's seen as you having to purge something mentally and physically. Oh okay not that. It just didn't agree with you. Your your purge. Yes so it's your body not your body couldn't take it or that is having some serious effects in your stomach. No that you needed to perjure yourself. What if you had like an allergic reaction All persian it's fine now whereas this episode kinda showed them literally drinking the african dream root with hair not even realizing they fell asleep. Just purged in. You said hair. there are some symptoms. That could happen if you take. Selenium can spec appearances one of which includes a report that came from somebody who tried it who will leave. They saw waiting lines of light and the air for about twenty minutes after consuming it before falling asleep and apparently going into dream. World is kind of compared to going underwater. Oh i don't know if i'd like that either no now. I don't like being underwater. So not only does it give you vivid dreams but it also gives you the ability to remember your dreams which is probably why jeremy was like. Oh this is so amazing. It wasn't the fact that he wasn't having dreams. That in this thanks to this lyneham consensus was able to remember the dreams he was having. But you wanna remember the dreams where you're killing people maybe amid depends on who you are. Now another effect of the route could be that your dreams or more colorful than usual and in which case it become extremely vivid Kind of very saturated and not everybody but there were some people in a study that said that they felt like they had the ability to control the outcome of the dream. Oh that's interesting and that right after waking up..

"Plenty to get to. But only one place to start spurs chelsea in the premier league and it's chelsea away from home getting a one. Nothing win the only goal in the match from the penalty spot jorgihno converts as chelsea picks up three big points that moves them up to six table. Four points. out of the top four spurs still stuck in a joining us for more. You're getting klinsmann and don hutchison. You're gonna start with you. Every time we evaluate spurs of late. I feel like the first question. Is we're spurs bad or was their opponent good. How do you break it down today. will you know me. I try to keep everything positive. When it's about spurs but a have be on today it's really difficult especially i forty five minutes to first. Half chelsea completely outplayed spurs. They got the lead with the penalty cake from georgina. Well-deserved served lead Spurs never created anything. The first forty five minutes. I mean their front line with the san benito's of burg line was pretty much not on the field and then they got a little bit more even in the second half I think chelsea should have been a little bit more. Clinical more decisive that could have scored a second or third one. That didn't do that. And that broad the spurs the last couple of minutes of the game back in the game and and they almost got venecia's there are almost had The win after the equalising header. Then it would have been one one and everybody would have asked well. It's not so bad. But i think it was a clearly well-deserved chelsea win Obviously that takes spurs now far away from the top spot via remain citizens. I think it's now fourteen points or something which makes a lot of spurs fans really happy today but Compliments to chelsea

The division for the first time in a couple of decades and digs is right at the center of their success. I'm always staying for buffalo trust and believe in me. I'm forever grateful personally.

Steph dick sets the club record with one hundred and one catches on the season. Congratulate is showing the bills and the whole nfl just how versatile a receiver he really is. You interviewed him for your cover story. Sam what was he like in person burg. I honestly i came into it. A little bit unsure what to expect when i sat down and started talking with digs though it became clear very quickly that he's an upbeat guy. A positive guy a guy who likes to laugh a guy smile. A guy who really enjoys fashion is a little bit eccentric at various points. We talked about the books. He's been reading. He really enjoyed the alchemist his a starbucks order which is apparently tavon green tea with a little bit of juice in it. Well so he loves the alchemist the book. He's apparently an alchemist. Like juice in your starbucks order really y- apparently he's really into it and i have to say as somebody who enjoys green tea and also enjoys apple juice. I had never thought put them together.

He'll fire to the right side. Does it does that catch in. January of two thousand. Eighteen is arguably the greatest play in vikings history. And they've been around for over sixty years so that's pretty significant. You would think in that moment. Okay this is a play. That's going to define this guy's career and it's going to link him forever to this team. Damn bill says i. I got a Never stop working. Today was went all the work paid off and this is where i found his arc interesting within a year and a half or so. He's absolutely miserable. And even though you might have thought hey. This guy could spend his whole career with the vikings. After having this moment it became very clear that that wasn't going to be the case. So what went wrong in minnesota. Why was he so unhappy.

The Birth of the Animal Rights Movement
"Ernest. Friburg joins us. Now he is the head of the history department at the university of tennessee and his most recent book is called a traitor to his species. Henry bergh and the birth of the animal rights movement ernest. Thanks for being here my blizzard. Thank you all right. We have to start with the obvious question because this is not a household name for most people who was henry burgh will he was the founder of the aspca and brought the idea of an animal welfare movement animal rights laws to the united states. Right after the civil war in eighteen sixty six. Your area of expertise is nineteenth and twentieth century. Social and cultural history. It's easy to see why your last book. The age of edison looked at the effects of electricity on society. What got you from there to looking at henry bergh and the birth of the animal rights movement. Well in all my work. I think i've been interested in the way this time period. We sort of called the gilded age. The progressive era into world war one the way this shaped the modern world the world that we live in two books ago. I wrote about the origin of civil liberties civil Free speech rights coming out of world war one. The edison book was looking at are both love and hatred of technology. In this case. I was interested in the way. If you look at a an image of nineteenth century city you see horses and of course. There are many many other animals very closely together with with people in the streets but by the nineteen twenty s. That's not the case anymore. In a sense this you know. Our urban environment has been stripped of animals. One historian described it. As as you know we live in a world where in urban environments at least we only have pets and pests and i thought that that captured that that pretty well so i was interested in that transition and i think the animal welfare movement and henry berg's career in particular kind of captures the beginning of some really profound changes in the relationship between humans and animals that started in that time period ended israeli. Still with us today. To what extent is that that change the decline of animals in urban environments. A consequence of the animal rights movement and to what extent is that. Really just about technology industrialisation. Oh it's certainly all those things. I'm not suggesting that the animal welfare movement itself was a driver in any of this but rather was a reflection of its changing sensibilities and in many cases they welcomed the technological changes if steam engines and electricity could replace the horse. That was good for the horse. As far as the animal welfare movement was concerned. so yes they. They're they're really just part of a much wider chains. It's a way to get at people's sensibilities in this time period. This was a time when people came to care much more about animals but at the same time very technology that you're talking about made like pretty grim for many animals as well. The american city was not a friendly place for animals. Describe what a typical city. And let's just use new york because that is where erg lived. What did near city look like at its peak in terms of the number of animals in the city will think about the horses the motive our for the entire city so everything just about relying on horsepower and that meant enormous traffic jams of carriages and wagons and these these railroads that were really the first mass transportation in the city's fundamental to the growth of cities in this time period but then of course there are huge packs of stray dogs roaming in the alleys idea of animal was really developed during this period animal welfare movement. Lots of people are moving into the city from rural areas. And they're bringing with them their own traditions of keeping a cow in the backyard and chickens and and so forth. Pigs are rooting in in the garbage. There really was not very good sanitation control in most neighbourhoods so scrape pigs were part of the scene so it was a it was an enormously rich complicated and dirty mix of humans and animals in this time period.
A Look At Apple's Hi, Speed Event
"Few huge surprises at apple's high speed event though. There were some unexpected bits. Did. Anybody. See The verizon thing coming? Did we have any idea what? MAG SAFE WAS GONNA turn out to be. There we'll get to those. Most of today's presentation is drawn from a couple of viewings of the Apple Park presentation. We'll also pull from the usual suspects doing their usual bang-up jobs. Tuesday's high-speed event presentation started with Apple CEO Tim Cook welcoming viewers back to Apple Park than throwing the presentation almost immediately to others to give the INS and outs of home pod. Many. Bob Board richer's apple VP worldwide product marketing listed the company's desires for home pod. Wanting. The device to have amazing sound to act as an intelligent assistant to serve as a smart home hub all while protecting the privacy and security of the user. This, they say they do in a smaller spherical unit that costs less than one third of the original home pods original asking price. On the amazing sound side company bragged on the devices ro properties as well as how well it plays with others. Others being other apple devices. Users can apparently sink home pod many's either a stereo pairs or to play the same audio throughout the home. The. Inclusion of apples you one processor makes handoff easier to handle according to the company. For what it'll play. Well, there's the usual stuff apple music, apple podcasts, iheartradio radio DOT COM tuned in with Pandora and Amazon music on the way in the coming months. As for the smart part Home Pod, many will handle or interact with messages. Calendar phone calls maps music because. The. Weather reminders and find my feature. There was also an interesting demo where users ask for personal updates and got them. personalized. So he you know multiple voice recognition is key. Now. One new feature mentioned and de Mode was intercom. This is basically what it sounds like. You tell home pod to deliver a message to everybody and the various apple devices in the house including other home pods, iphones, apple watches air pods, and even carplay units play or display the message. I have heard entercom will work with the original home pods as well though not seeing that confirmed. Addressing. It's smart home hub nece home pod many integrates with apple's home APP that lets control home connected accessories said scenes and stuff like that. Covering User Privacy Apple, says no word spoken to Home Pod, leave your home until you touch home pod many or say he. S I are. So, yes, it is always listening but what it here's goes nowhere until you give it the command. Request. A home pot or not associated with apple ID. You choose whether recordings are saved by apple personal requests only work when the associated iphone is home with you. And communications with smart home accessories used strong encryption according to the company. Now I, said earlier that the unit is spiritual. If you've seen a home pod, there is no mistaking what this thing is. Same sort of light up display on the top same mesh wrapping it's roundedness and the same white and space grey options as the original home pod. Coming soon to flat surface near you. Orders for home pod many began on the sixth of November unit, start, shipping the week of the sixteenth of November. Not Price, to beat an echo but not a device that will break the bank. Home Pod many will sell. For, Ninety, nine bucks. Okay. I pretend to hear you say but I'm worried about breaking my home pause many. Not sure why but better to be safe in your case. To that end apple care plus we'll be available for home pod. Many. A piece from macrumors says, that will run buyers fifteen bucks.

In ideal conditions, Best Burg says the carriers seen four gigabits down and two hundred megabits up. The four gigabits is kind of funny own Antonio Guy says an ideal conditions. Well it doesn't sound like you're getting four GIGA beds but we'll get, him. The other thing best Burger announced was flipping the switch on Verizon's extensive five gene nationwide network. That apparently went live yesterday. Boy would I like to know the terms of the deal worked out between, that bill and Verizon? Emphasis on particular carrier. I did not see coming. Now I said iphone twelve comes in four models here the rumor mill rang true. The phones are iphone twelve iphone twelve many iphone twelve pro and iphone twelve pro, Max. Starting with iphone twelve, remember the squared off edges of iphone Four. The new design returns us to that. Squared edges that meet flush with the devices front and back glass the front classes something special though. Working with corning delay, this display is protected by what apple. Calls Ceramic. Shield. It is said by the company to be tougher than any other smartphone class with four times better dropped performance than iphone eleven. The display it's protecting is apple custom Ole ed providing truer blacks, better contrast and two times the pixels iphone eleven or four, hundred, sixty pixels per inch. While that displays the same six point one inches iphone eleven, apple shrank the surrounding enough to make iphone. Eleven percent than her fifteen percent smaller and sixteen percent lighter than iphone. Eleven Choice of colors is not huge but they are pretty. With options and black. White Product Red Green. And blue that. Does things for me. I shouldn't talk about in mixed company. The candy coating is nice. Let's talk about. It's Chewy. Chocolate center starting with the phones five Genus Apple says, iphone twelve has the most five G. bands of any smartphone for better performance in more places. Additionally the company's silicon, the software approach. Let's apple make the best use of available five G. including choosing to not use five. G.. It sounds like iphone defaults to lt e tapping into five G. when it's both necessary and available. That is great for power consumption according to the company. Apples tested the new phones on over one hundred carriers and over thirty regions. In ideal conditions iphone twelve gets up to three point five gigabits on. which is what makes the Brian Bragging about four gigabytes down kind of funny yesterday. It does support millimeter wave those so. got that going for it. As, for the phones on workings iphone twelve powered by apple's a fourteen bionic, the first phone powered by the five nanometer processor technology packing eleven point eight billion transistors roughly forty percent more than eight thirteen. A six core CPU that's up to fifty percent faster than last year's phone and a four core GPU graphics that are up to fifty percent faster than last year's model. Machine learning also gets a boost iphone, twelve packs of sixteen coordinator and Gen that's up to eighty percent faster than iphone eleven capable of eleven, trillion operations per second. Company bragged on Games claiming console quality for the phone. To Demonstrate and executive from riot games showed off League of legends wild rift a mobile, only game due out later this year. Well phone twelve is not the phone photographers would choose. There's plenty of improvement and it's cameras. Apple says the phone has a twelve megapixel ultra wide camera and twelve megapixel wide camera. It said the sport, the fastest aperture yet it also features a seven element lens that apple says offers twenty-seven percent improvement in low light performance. Mag Save is an internal thing. Rather than a name for a connector is in days of old MAG. Safe today is a collection of magnets and charging elements that help line up the phone for proper charging. When it's not charging those magnets go to work holding on cases and wallets and third party stuff. Apple expects a thriving ecosystem of third party doodads take advantage of the newly introduced MAG. Safe. Ness. Mag Safety. Safe thing. Anyway. It's a thing built into iphone twelve. Every model in the line. Now's probably phone twelve many. Except for the size, you can take everything I've said so far about iphone twelve and play it back. iphone twelve many has the same specs as iphone twelve though in a slightly smaller size. The company says the mini is smaller and lighter than four point seven inch models like iphone eight but with a bigger five point four inch display. Apple says, this one is the smallest thinnest and lightest five G. phone. In the world. Talking about last night with Frederik, Van Johnson, and a few other folks on Chuck joiners Mac. Voices. We came to the conclusion that the pro phones for two groups, people who wanna spend as much money as they can afford. Or people who really care about the camera. There's nothing wrong with the camera functionality and the iphone twelve or iphone twelve many. Unless you count they're not being as high end as the camera on the high end. No I'm not a high end photo guy. So there was a lot set around iphone twelve pro, an iphone twelve pro Max that escapes me. The camera on iphone twelve pro boxes said by apple to have a sixty five millimeter focal length from fifty two millimeter focal length and last year's counterpart. It's got five times optical zoom range and the set to support an eighty seven percent improvement in low light versus last year's top of the pro line. I do know enough to be impressed by one thing. The pro line can shoot an apple pro raw. or it will be able to with a software update. Later, this year photographers will also be able to edit those images. Directly, in the photos APP. The pros can also handle. HD are video recording catching seven hundred million colors. Sixty Times, the number they could capture before. Apple, said they also sport the first smartphone camera that'll record in dolby vision hd are. And just like the apple pro raw functionality users will be able to edit the dobie vision HDR video in the photos APP. Finally the light are rumors were finely true the twelve pro and twelve pro Mac speech or a world facing light detection and ranging scanner. That let folks scan and modeled their surroundings. Apples Demos showed that put to use for placing objects in an augmented reality environment performing improved autofocus and low light and improving camera that perception in low light for night moat. Working our way out of these phones, Greg, Joswiak, apple's newly minted senior. VP Worldwide Marketing talked about a few of the pro lines features. It's got mad safe. It's got ceramic shield. It's got a Super Ratna FDR display. As for sizes iphone twelve pro gets bumped from five point eight inch display display size of six point one inches the pro Max meanwhile goes six point five inch display to a display size of six point seven. All of it is bound by the same squared off edges as iphone twelve, the with a couple of distinctions. I. The outer band is stainless steel on the pro line and second the colors are a bit more refined. Coming in silver graphite a gold that looks seriously golden. And the Pacific. Blue that doesn't do as much for me as the blue on the IPHONE twelve. Not that I'd turn it down. If cost is your primary concern. Here is what you're looking at across the whole line of iphones. iphone se. Start Three, hundred, ninety, nine dollars iphone ten are starts at four ninety, nine iphone eleven starts at five, ninety, nine iphone many starts at hundred ninety, nine dollars iphone twelve starts at seven ninety, nine, iphone twelve pro starts at nine, ninety nine. An iphone Pro Max starts at one, thousand, ninety, nine dollars. For the new phones though those prices are only Kinda SORTA true. Peace, from the Mac Observer says iphone twelve many an iphone twelve do start at six, ninety, nine and seven, ninety nine if you buy them as a t and T or verizon phones if you buy one is either a sprint or t mobile phone or as an unlocked phone. The starting prices are seven, twenty, nine, and eight, twenty nine. With no indication as to why. While it's great that ceramic shield means less of a chance of broken display. The chance is still there. If that bugs, you apple care pluses there for all of them. macrumors says, two years of coverage will run one, hundred, forty, nine dollars for iphone and twelve mini. Adding loss or theft protection will up that price to to nineteen buyers can get ongoing coverage for seven, ninety, nine per month or eleven dollars and forty nine cents with loss and theft added. As for the higher end phones, the pizzas, two years of Apple Care Plus will cost one, nine, thousand, nine or nine dollars ninety nine cents per month. Theft. And loss coverage bumps that price to two, hundred, sixty, nine dollars or thirteen dollars and forty nine cents per month. Ongoing. As for availability, apple is starting in the middle. And working out. Would owners can order iphone twelve and iphone twelve pro this Friday the sixteenth. October. They'll be delivered the following Friday the twenty third. If you're targeting either end of the range. iphone twelve, many an iphone twelve pro Max will go up for order on the sixth of November. Delivery should hit the following Friday the thirteenth of November. Barring incident which I have to say because. Friday
Charlotte, the Ghost of South Africa's Nottingham Road Hotel
"DC O'Rourke. And this is hauntingly yours. Here. We all are together once again tuning in for yet another episode to learn the World's haunted places 4 episode 12 you and I will be putting on our safari gear as we are headed to the coastal province of wait for it off Hulu guitar in South Africa. This is truly a beautiful beautiful beautiful location guys. It's known for its beaches. It's mountains, it's Jose Jimenez that are full the wildlife. It's definitely a must-visit location. If you need a place to stay well, why not look into the office in Nottingham Road Hotel just on Old Main Road legend has it that there have been establishments on this site since 1851. Before that's a long time. There was a not he's in or Tavern situated here that provided a hang out spot for soldiers who were stationed at nearby Fort Nottingham. The soldiers they were brought in for one mission in particular and that was to protect the local farmers from the thieving Bushman who were coming around and stealing their livestock. Apparently it become a real problem in these men did absolutely whatever they could to put an end to it. The overall location at this establishment, but it was ideal. It was actually able to cater to the mini horse-drawn carriages that passed through the area. This was a long before way would even be thought about the First Recording. Thanks about the hotel. We know today indicate that the land for the noughties as locals like to affectionately call. It was bought by a George Irwin around 1889 following the deaths of landowner James Ellis and his sister Jani-King the land being sold by the facts to pay off the siblings the States. What was the price received for that land a whopping sum of 125 pounds per acre. Wow. This was actually mean pretty steep for the time. My guess. It has that it had something to do with the favorable Loco. chicken I mean we have to stop and look at the fact that it's pretty much at a Crossroads where the road to the interior leads to the road that takes you straight to Fort Nottingham door window. He went on to a ranked what he called the Railway Hotel to serve the station that was built at the tiny Nottingham Road settlement. Local farmer and settler George Smith. Yes, Smith s m y bhe he writes in his diary July 12th 1882 off. The railway has it lasts commenced and there is a large staff of men on gallery busy putting a buildings in beginning the Earthworks. The station is to be just at the cross the road for Nottingham about two miles from straight turn. The railway line finally reached out to him Road at the end of 1885. The station was initially called Harrison's Camp after the contractor prior to the station's opening before being called Clark Lewis station. However, the name was changed to Nottingham Road station in 1887 as the locals decided that it was too far from karkloof to be so named previously Littleton was the last stop the real we changed the lives of the Midland settlers forever. There was a daily postal system and almost anything they needed could now be ordered from Durban or. It's Burg produce from the area could be quickly sent to the city centers for sale and travel between the coast and the interior was a matter of hours rather than weeks or days the railway also led to the development of the Midlands as a viable area for settlement that my opinion is always a great thing. The Railway Hotel was built by a mr. Morgan and was completed at the beginning of 1891 and it soon became the center of social activity at Nottingham Road. A gracious two-story building was set and rolling Lawns the hotel offered guess the Comforts of proper lighting package tennis courts and a Billiards room as well as activities such as shooting and horseback riding at the turn of the century another family took over the the last name Singleton. They would go on to run the business as they saw fit. But Nottingham Road Hotel was always the local favorite haunt weather for a social drink in the pub or for supposedly more serious matters such as meetings of the Dead Nottingham Road Farmers Association. Apparently, the farmers will often only survived home safely because they're faithful horses knew the way back to their Stables off the the system works smoothly until a prankster swapped the horses between the different traps and cards. So that drunken farmers were taken off in completely different directions often the locals would decide to stay over at the hotel especially at the weather was bad. One such farmer a Christopher groom was trying to reach the hotel to Shelter From a storm. He was unable to reach it in time and was unfortunately struck by a bolt of lightning just down side right where the first tennis courts were located in his dead horse were actually discovered some time later when the storm had passed over the bridge just man quite unaware of his narrow escape a hole was found straight through his saddle and it showed where that bolt of lightning had struck. Like all hotels or the history the Nottingham Road hotel is reputed to be haunted. Of course right in the past two guests and staff have reported that the spirit of a woman roams the hotel especially room 10:00 and it's ground this house proud gentle ghosts. Apparently. She was flower arrangements Tiny's away clothes and straightens wedding Legend has it that she is Charlotte a beautiful prostitute who frequent in the hotel catering were soldiers from the 45th regiment in the latter part of the nineteenth Century, her story says that she fell in love with a regular at the hotel a soldier a handsome man ended up having to leave Charlotte at one point to go off and fight in the Bushman Wars. Unfortunately, he was killed on the fields of battle and birth. Made it back to his beloved Charlotte upon hearing the news took to the balcony of her room and was so stricken with grief that she threw herself to her deathbed. Send story right? I'd say that so pretty it's pretty good reason to come back as a ghost. She's not the only one that lurks around in the darkness though God. Oh, no as it would turn out Charlotte. She's just the one who likes to appear the most. Today not he's is one of the Midlands more popular hotels. It's dark and cozy it has a wood-paneled pub with Rory log fires on colder nights and and it offers tasty pub fare and beer on tap while the more elegant dining room doubles as a multi-purpose room off the bedrooms are comfortable in a spacious Garden offers a relaxed place to enjoy a sunny Midlands afternoon.
How Chicago's Death Alley Got Its Name
"By I decided to restart my day took a shower here. We are feeling good feeling in feel like I'm in the driver's seat. Good. Good. Yeah. That's a lesson forever and restart your day whenever you choose if you're not going the way, you want it. You get to restart it whenever you want and hydrate. And hydrate I'm going to a separate now. Everyone with us. Wasn't that refreshing. So before we get into the history of the Pittsburgh playhouse. Mercedes who again today script wrote us a little introduction. So without further ado, let's get into says. Introduction. She writes I love Pittsburgh. It's my home city, and in my humble opinion, it's one of the top two best cities on the planet. It's a place full of life and culture and history, but it's so small unleash that it tends to fly beneath the radar for most I grew up loving the city and knowing that it has a lot to offer when it comes artistic expression August Wilson, famously loved the city his home city so much that he created that connick Pittsburgh cycle it's an amazing city so to me, it just makes sense that if ghosts were real, they'd want to come back to hang out in the burgh I love for a little longer guests I love that you really heartfelt starts episode Mercedes. I think I need to go to Pittsburgh have you been now? Road trip I how far far could we drive from here? Yeah. I don't think it's far I think yeah I don't know. No I think. We'll take our stark reserves. Okay. So the history of the Pittsburgh playhouse. By Mercedes okay. The historic Pittsburgh playhouse originally on craft and was not so much a theater as it was a collection of buildings that were brought and then turned into theatrical spaces. The first of these was acquired in nineteen, thirty four and was formerly a German Social Club. This building was bought as a wedding present by Richard. Row for his wife Helen Wayne their stories actually very cute. So Richard. Fell in love with Helen when he first saw her perform in New York, his family was super rich and well-known Spanish factors in Pittsburgh. So he bought the location for Helen to give her a nice space to act in Pittsburgh. He basically did this so that they could live there together and she would feel fulfilled even though she wasn't a Big New York City Act trix actress. On that's so cute. Matching someone just give. The building. Just so that you can. Live in the and like feel like you're a big time. Yeah. I get jobs. Yes. Okay. So that their names are Helen and Richard Richard and So. With that, the Pittsburgh Civic playhouse was formed not just by Richard and Helen. It was a group of artists making up the company but like the rows. Oh but like the rows were moneybags. playhouses. Next purchase was an adjacent house to act as a lobby for what was then known as the Roth eater. The first performance in this theater and lobby space was in nineteen, thirty four. The playhouse was fairly popular in the thirties and forties staging productions of Noel Coward's private lives in Thornton wilders. Then new our town during his l.. Then new. Oh. I would like to, I. would like to live in a world where. Still felt new. During this, the playhouses signature leading lady was, of course, none other than Helen Wayne row, which seems like a pretty sweet deal and I'm jealous of her whole situation getting a sugar daddy to basically launch her acting career. Mercedes. SPEAK ON A. So the stage also housed musicals and featured a little known dancer choreographer just months before he would get his big break on Broadway you WanNa. Take a guess Fred Astaire. Close. Close. Oh Who Does skin I don't another dig her come on. It's obvious. Gene, Kelly. of. Yeah. Gosh. Okay. But I've heard he's like Not Nice well, did he like demand rehearsals like over and over again tell people bleeding? Yeah something wacko on in singing in the rain like I've brought up seeing in the rain on this podcast before which is funny. Okay. So that's NEAT I didn't know Gene Kelly was from. Pittsburgh neither that means Jim Kelly Okay Mall from the Burgh. What a gorgeous dancer what? Does little tap into. All right. Moving on. The third building that was additives Hodgepodge of theaters was formerly the tree of life synagogue the congregation moved to Squirrel Hill. I have to stop. I have to stop Squirrel Hill. Sounds like that sounds like a horrifying like like scary movie of chipmunks and squirrels like like. or or Blake dream. Yes my partner like squirrels. Okay. the congregation moved to Scroll Hill in nineteen fifty, one in this space was acquired by the playhouse making up their largest theater space. The Rock wealthier underneath the theater was a restaurant known as the playhouse restaurant. A former ballroom turned ice cream parlor. Cute. Wow. They're out here like setting up a small town. Lot of they got a restaurant. So there's three theaters. All connecting. So like spaces. Yeah. It was the playhouse restaurant, which is a ballroom to ice cream parlor. Got It. So you want got it another local Pittsburgh or to get their star at the playhouse before becoming a household name was one Shirley. Jones. I don't know that is. Listeners You do but I hope you do if you don't Google it we will. Profess, she performed in the playoffs. Many times Okay. Walmer says love that fact but. I feel like we're GONNA waking up in like feel stupid or something. Yeah. Well, another Pittsburgh native who has a history at the playhouse, oh? My Gosh is Jeff. Goldblum. We love chuckles literally Jeff. Goldblum pits. Pittsburgh playhouse butter boop. Out by I love. Jeff. Jacob Blue, that's the best I can I gotta wash him. Once when I go on benders watching Jeff Videos I can get that I can get that down pat? I can do really well that was impression to have like just in your back pocket it is it is when parties come back in twenty thirty I'll be sure to have perfected that party trick. Apparently, his first acting was done with the children's Cedar through playhouse junior an educational opportunities where children received professional training on a professional stage. Mercedes wrote feel free to have Goldblum here I would like to but I don't know why I love You love yes. We've why sorry I just I we did watch this show. But I'm just saying like outside of like that show on Disney plastic everyone by the way if you're busy plus stream Jeff. Goldblum show it's incredible but. I Love Jeff Goldblum I want his his interviews on Graham Norton also highly recommend every interview on. Yeah. True. True. Just pivoting entirely too grim noreen. My favorite episode did US maybe we are together. So don't get mad at me but did you watch that episode of Jeff. Goldblum the world according to Jeff Goldblum by the way is the full title did you watch the episode where he goes to Jeff Goldblum Day and gets like a tattoo like he'll give some tattoo people are getting Jeff. Goldblum. FLASH TATTOOS DID YOU. Know I didn't. But I've seen I've seen him Like. In an interview talking about people getting tattoos of him. And it's so funny. It's like I feel like we should be our next to you remember when we had just left London and somewhat some artists like installed this giant Jeff Goldblum statue on like Phil Lot on the lawn outside the the bridge theater setting somewhere around there and they had this like Gorgeous Gold Statue of Jeff Goldblum laying down like he doesn't Dross Park Oh. Yeah and he's like young his shirtless Yeah Walnut list but tank top or whatever no just a button down but it was like not buttoned half a Oh Anyway so you shouldn't. Superstar.

Go slight see the me calm your show. Can take over. So. The theater began to struggle financially and was acquired by point bark. Point Park University in nineteen sixty eight the playhouse continued to operate now mostly for students for many years this way this wasn't a perfect fit though the buildings of the playhouse were old and not originally intended for theater. They were also much farther from Point Park's main downtown campus making the playhouse more trouble for the school than it was worth in late two, thousand, eighteen, the old Pittsburgh playhouse buildings crafts avenue were demolished as the spirit of the playhouse was moved to a new home. Oh, that's a bummer. It's like cool history. The new Pittsburgh playhouse complex is located on Forbes and fourth, and while it may not have as many ghosts lingering as the old buildings had it is at the very least a space that was designed and intended to be used for theatre. Sad. Sad. Okay. Well, moving on things the hunting section of the Pittsburgh playhouse. We gotta get my my spooky vocal but We also Halloween town reference. Have you sir. Familiar. Halloween town. Longtime ago. I know. Collectively, Judge Lino, she was not raised on D. Calms and it shows in times like this. There's a wonderful line that Debbie Reynolds has when she corrects her grandson on how to make a ghost noise like make it like this out of a ghost sign it was one of the daughters anyway she's like she's like she says something about it being like like lower and more melancholic
Sameer Pandya on "Members Only" Book
"Everyone John Wartime here. Sports illustrated tennis podcast. Everyone is doing well our guest. This week is severe Panja. Who is a professor at the University of California Santa Barbara teaches creative writing Asian American literature, and also more importantly for our purposes has just written a terrific tennis book members only which tennis figures prominently both as a plot device in a metaphor I. I absolutely devour this book. We will link it link the Amazon page on our show page, but this is a fun conversation talking about tennis talking about writing talking about tennis as a storytelling device full disclosure Samir I share a publisher and publicist, so I want to dispense with that, but this was a really fun conversation a fun book timely book. I think people will love book members. Only it's called, and here is a on enjoyable half hour conversation here we go. I start off by congratulating him. I really you know people. Binge Watch TV shows I. binged dread members only and. Plowed through edited, it did not disappoint. Grad seriously congrats I. Mean it's it's great. It's it's really. SMART, and funny, and I thought we'll talk about this later. I thought very topical, and it's also does. Does tennis right so you succeeded on many dimensions as far as I'm concerned. CONGRATS I. I will say that you saying it did tennis right? Is means particularly lot because you know. I think. In terms of different kinds of readers, right, there's there's. Specific details if I'm reading something in if somebody gets a core detail wrong, which is not that big of a deal? It can be. It can break it for me. You know I'm Mike. Okay I can't do this anymore. Right I can't go down this road trusting this person and so I'm really happy to hear that I mean. Tennis is a big. I love the sport and we can also talk about that as well, but so that's great. Thank you I I. I wrote it with a certain kind of. Kind of propulsion in mind, right and I kinda wanted to be read that way, and then hopefully there other things. You know that you can go back to, or you can think about in ways in terms of how Raj operates in this in this book that can take a little bit more consideration, but you know in these in. These days. I want to read a book quickly. And I think in some ways I wanted to write a book that people could read quickly as well. The I say it's your talk. Not I feel like you're talking about a nonfiction book and everything's on the table. Right everything the next serve I feel I. Don't know what lessons You'd like me to take I don't know how much we can reveal here. Well, let's start you. To your character, so let's let's start there To to tennis fans, it is not spelled R. A. J. as your character is, but you know Raj is a name of relevance. Tennis fans You, you mentioned the details. You Got Right now. I think you're absolutely right. I think the second somebody writes about tennis of calls. A rally volley! We've got issues right? You did not do that this either was a studious research or else. You really have some grounding in tennis. What's what's your background sport? Yeah, you know so I so we came. We moved to America when I was eight years old. I lived in Bombay until I was eight owes a huge cricket fan. I played a ton of cricket. And we moved into A. Kind of an apartment complex when we arrived here and and. There was a tennis court. Right next to it where we're well. This was in the East Bay. This was east of. Glee in in in a in a city called San Pablo. and. You know. I think when I was like nine or ten years old, there was a man who would always come there in hidden serves like ten down the t ten out. Why ten down the T ten out wide, and I just started going down there and Collecting balls for him. And this! I think a you know him and his wife. They didn't have kids, and you know in a lovely gesture. At some point. He showed up with a tennis racket. And kinda showed me how to shift the grip for forehand and backhand, which was my first official lesson in the game and so. I so I started playing there. I played through high school and you know. and. Then I stopped playing the game for years. I stopped playing college. I didn't play it in Graduate School You know I moved my wife and I moved to new. York For five years where I had my first academic job. Getting Court New York as you know, is not an easy task, and so I have always kind of played the game, and then also I just love the game the pro game as well right, which is that I wasn't quite. Aware of the Borg McEnroe Connors era, but I think I really started watching you it with lendl real under at Burgh those are the I think in Michael Chang, so that was kind of mid might time said mid eighties moment. And so I've been kind of a fan of the sport in that way throughout the time and then. You know it's a great middle aged sport like I, love. I love the sociology of it. The player talking yeah. Yeah Yeah. Yeah, so in both of those things, so that's why I'm just. It is as a kind of as a spectator as a player It's a one sport that I kind of gravitate towards the much.
Stephen Wright on 'Processed Cheese'
"Is the show most excited about. I've been excited in anticipation of it for a long time. The author Steven Wright has been on bookworm twice a four. I love his work and it takes him the Gourd zone time to complete it. I've been waiting for his newest novel which is called processed cheese and which is published by Little Brown. Oh for around seven years and as I read it I wanted it to never be over. I wanted to be reading it forever. I think like Stevens other books. It's made out of sentences and a feeling about the world that's completely his own knowing. No the title processed cheese. Stephen has been with you for a while. I've been wanting to write a book with that title since I can remember so. I finally did the title game before the Book Way. Back when I was sixteen. One of the things my father did was to make cheese board sees pieces of wood which cheese was attached under plastic at first when it started out like most American things they were real genuine supreme vintage cheeses but as things had to be less and less expensive to be made. These cheeses were replaced by process cheeses and the expensive store. The same bloomingdale's that sold the cheese board was replaced by five and ten where you could get. The junk is on the junk board in the junk rapper. And that was what growing up in. America was light during that period that was UAE. May Be we needed the sixties so when. I saw your tunnel processed cheese. It meant so much to me about the end of quality and the beginning of junk in my child he read it exactly the right way. That's terrific now. Tell me this is a book about as one of the first chapter says money money money money money money money. It's about the replacement of everything by the need for money. And more money and under funded coppell find that the husband has been hit by a bad. Were walking down a street. The bag is filled with hundred dollar bills. Which are wrapped in plastic packets? He suddenly got more money than he or his wife. Ambience know what to do with his name is graveyard. Her name is Ambien. Stephen Word of these names come from. I wish I knew they just. I don't know where they came from. The thing is that when they occurred to me it just seemed absolutely right that these were the right names for these people so they stock all of the names of the people in this book are based on industrial processes or Johnke. The city's the places are named things like random Burg this is the world that's died down and been replaced by the equivalent of processed cheese. John Exact has replaced everything. Yeah that is the theme of the book. Yes now the book is so funny. I mean you'll pardon me laugh out loud funny I laugh out loud myself sometimes thinking about phrase or line yes so that's pretty pleasing when he can laugh at your own stuff even years after you wrote it. It's a hung aureus book but a book. That's hilarious about a tragedy of life. That life does not feel like life anymore that life feels like its own version of processed cheese. Yeah exactly how do you live while riding such a book? It's Day by day. You just get through the day like everybody else. You know you get through each day as best you can but. I need to tell my listeners that Steven Wright our guest is the author of five books the first one was called Meditations in Green. It was the first major who Gustav Nation of Vietnam. The second book M Thirty One was a family romance. I pointed out when reading it that it seemed to be based on the nightmare. Gatherings in Faulkner's novel sanctuary. But you don't have to know that it's a Family of people who believe in Outer Space Aliens going native was a book. Oh Stephen I really was barely out of my twenties. I was given this show to do and I asked someone. I think it was an beady. Who SHOULD I meet in New York publishing? Who would help me to know how to go about doing books on my show and she sent me to the man who turns out to have been your life long friend and editor Michael Pietsch. Yes he gave means three chapters of the then unpublished looney tunes novel going native. I say gooney tunes novel because it has on its original edition a big looney tunes series of circles you expect bugs to be poking his head through And I then spoke to Stephen when going native came out the amalgamation Polka imagined that southern scientists were able to change the color of the skin of the people that they wanted to amalgamate. It's a bizarre disturbing novel. That reminds me of Herman. Melville's peer or the ambiguities. Steven Wright did me the favour of teaching me. What the word in that. Some title Pierre or the ambiguities means. Tell US Stephen. The subtitle is Pierre or the ambiguities and it turns out that in the nineteenth century. That was a phrase that was used for someone who lost their mind. He's got the ambiguities. Isn't that amazing? I did not know that 'til I was done with the book. If I had known that I would put it in
Why Our pH Levels Are Important
"Skimpy. H- h what is and she'll highs Jimmy notes sorry sorry. So P H- H. This is the boring but stuns for potential hydrogen and it's basically the acidity level of substance So as indicated by numerous scale and it runs from zero to fourteen with seven being neutral So I'm kind of going to go through in a bit like I thought you would fall asleep them. I'm going through a little scale and a beer. That kind of tells you what familiar thing you might see on a Ph neutral strongly alkaline and then strongly acidic so you can kind of just thought peace for yourself. How yes extremism so yeah? Anything below seven is acidic and anything above his alkaline. So for example lemon juice which is quite fitter agree here. That small noise just came out of my throat was off fall. It was a Burgh account. Bit CanNot Person. It felt where it's over the phone so anything below. Seven is acidic and even above alkaline. So-called little skin Ph scale here so obviously seven is you neutral Softbank in the middle if we're going towards see acidic side of the scale you've got four six which is were your black coffee. Oh delays zero to three contains. Lemon juice Wayne in at number two and strongly acidic way over number one ISCHGL buttery acid nice. Sa- quite acidic. Nice go enroll onto the side. You strongly Klein. You've got drain more drain cleaner. Sorry at fourteen at fourteen and then a no. I'm ammonia eleven. Yeah I WANNA say eleven seawater eight fan. It is very important to know that like the differences because it goes zero one. Two three four. This is a numeric scale. Like it's not linear Does that make sense? Yes so it means a tenfold increase multiplied by ten separates each P. number So a Ph of three is a hundred times more powerful than a Ph of five heck so is quite a big difference between a good old. Bob Jassat zero on your lemon juice to Medusa agenda. But you don't really put you. I don't think so. No no no so go into something. That sounds completely rogue. I'm GonNa talk about your Montel now. So basically our skin is Colbert a protective film on the surface surface so I called acid mantle and what this basically stop thinking of a mantelpiece grow up what this basically does is. It maintains skin's Ph levels and prevents infections. I'm trying to Mahara to be professional. This is just fucking route carry-on. I know you don't finish off. Even read wildlife abound tool pace. Even though that's funny carry on delivery the least for Nick thing off you go far enough. Whatever floats your boat anyway. So what you're acid mantle does is it maintains e skin's Ph level on prevents infection seals in moisture. Just quite. Let's be honest. Keeps the environmental aggressive? How do you know what that basically is? He skin barrier right. We should we rusted Montel. Oh you are segment so obviously. It's called your acid mantle so your skin should always be more on the acid side. Roth than alkaline. Which is why we can use acidic products and it not burn off faceoff right. He's like an alkaline. It would been probably dry skin. We're going to go into the layer. Okay so you okay. Yes so when you were born your skin is a solid seven is completely neutral when you're little baby. And then a few weeks after birth it starts like and a little bit more acidic so on this scale of God. So zero to three which is strongly acidic. And then you fall to six which says in hyphen skin goals. Oh yes it does. It does so. I've got this little quote from Polish choice. Which kind of sums up? The acid mantle plays a vital role by working with skin neutral. Ingredients like semis. Cholesterol enzymes swats and even our skin zone oil to protect skin surface and lower layers from external threats. Oh grand like that So what should it be? I'm quite a while I've been talking. This is not true for me. You'll miss science so like I said before. Our skin is on the acidic side because obviously of the said Monsell and the average age of human skin cells. We don't want this human skin is between. Can you mean gas? Pretend that you've not got the notes right. I'm not looking at it so I want to guess what the human skin Ph is yet. It needs to be on the a little bit of the acidic side and seven is neutral five more. Yes long in the middle so is between four point seven. Five point seven five. Oh five yeah so yeah with no in like absolutely everything else in our lives offered. Multiple diminishes with age becomes less acidic which means Dry Skin and wrinkles and fine line so I guess they do us when he skipped on the more alkaline side of the scale that you just get dry but reflect skin flick your buttery flaky. Crispy flaky correct. So I'm don now's million G. WanNa tell me jolly what your how to check or your skin pay indeed. We should have actually thought ahead of this. I'M GONNA go some Ham test right. I think it would be good content to support the episode. Yes let's do that. So if you listen to this on there's not a post op to support it. That move just been laziest football on. They will come probably in about six months CEO aims. How'd you chat which will p. h? As an so number one obvious one would say is visit a dermatologist. They can help test you and advise what kind of pro she would need. Only problems that you might be saying. Because if he I know over in America is different to here in the K. Because unless you went privately would have to be referred to a dermatologist. Their basic natural hospital rather than just saying on a book. An appointment with a dermatologist. Again Mush private but in the US near the EU obviously don't have the NHL so often a dermatologist will be in your health insurance or you can use that to go and see a dermatologist. So yet that was probably the hardest thing to do in the UK would not be able to get an appointment with a dermatologist. Just to see what your skin behaviors hypo. Can you tell me what in can I just get you to spend three thousand pounds on me checking my ph thanks Yeah no obviously. You'RE NOT GONNA be in the UK because is ridiculous waste of NHS doctors time they have much more important things to do than check your Ph So the next best thing would be getting some test strips. So you can buy strips to check Pretty much anything so your in new saliva but you can get one specifically for your skin. Safes as well so we will If you are inscribed birthday dot skin than you will be able to see how we get on checking our skimpy. Ho Ch but under the thing that you can do to check. I know it's very vague book Something that might be helpful. Is that just keeping a close eye on? Your skin is very important because soft skin. That doesn't really have any dry spell saw dry areas and is well balanced which is obviously when we're talking about skin type of combination and aims. You saw away the kind of oily in some areas dry in this There will products out there. Four rebalanced saying they can get some nice rebalancing oils is on that. Got The rebound album. Roya on you. So yeah if you do. Struggle with A difference in skin around different areas of your face. Then you are relatively imbalanced. Eber is Kinda easy to fix that and then any irritated skin there have acne Oregon readiness like I do meet skins. Probably lean in motos alkaline side. Which is obviously as aim said. Decide you don't really want to be on. You WanNa be more sick all so basically your drain cleaner and I'm lemon juice. Oh gorgeous
"burg" Discussed on The Puddcast
"Ourselves in the process. Happened a lot and we punish the people around us to for sure. I in an interview earlier this year with Gary Thomas. WHO's got a book out on when to walk away funding from toxicity and and he said to me Johnson in a wheat we see Jesus? This is this constant martyr that an every situation. He's smarter suggest went to the Cross one time obviously very very importantly and willingly. But there's all these times ends where Jesus bolted where Jesus like whispered like whisked himself away in the crowd because they were trying to kill him with our off a cliff or like Jesus actively resisted listed being physically hurt. Yeah and we've we kind of. Don't hold onto that as you said in our in our narrative forget or we're not taught it in society. It doesn't that doesn't sell like let's be real. It's not it's not a sellable scripture like it. It doesn't it doesn't sell it doesn't sell on. T shirts doesn't stop it doesn't look pretty And you know when there's several boundaries that Jesus made where you know he he's separated himself from the disciples to pray like I need some time right like we feel guilty taking alone time. He's walked he got movement. He ate well like we forget that he's like really holistic for some reason. Yeah like it's like we like we think of like you said as the martyr and the sacrificial act of love and we forget all the other aspects to to who he was and what that models for us now in our life and I think it's unfair for for this generation and the next generation. If we don't if we continue to paint that picture you know like I think that we can be fiercely. Devoted to God and fiercely the rooted at boundaries and loves and a commitment to healing. Because then we don't then pass on on the unhealed wounds that are ancestors carried yell we're saying like I'm the West lawn us. Yes yes absolutely. I'm trying to find a post viewers here and it's probably a little while back so remember now but you know I've heard you. I've read you write things about you. Know they're those gifts that we can give to our children of doing our own heart work of healing not passing on that non function to the next generation. Where would you say? Obviously we were. Where do we begin with that in terms of our journey but maybe just in terms of parenting context our training? That's a train. Sorry in terms of parenting context. Where where would you see making some of that shift for parents who have grown dissatisfied already with the tools rules? They had the kind of hosh disciplinarian approach. But they haven't really felt like they had permission to pursue alternative. Well hello first of all. That was me like three years ago. And so my daughter's four and right around one You know they become real people all like really opinionated. Really like they're walking they're kinda talking Panama and they're like little monsters let's be real I that was when I realized that You know I didn't. I was spanked. We talked about that earlier. I was spanked and I was raised Irish Catholic and it was lake. You know you don't talk back and you don't And so I was a very afraid prayed Austin of my parents but I kind of believed that that just what parents do two now and so when I became parents.
