"Ilya Shapiro quit Georgetown law school yesterday because in a sham, they said, you can have your job but you can't say anything. Upset to anyone ever. It's a heckler's veto. I know you said, go to hell. He really did. And good for Ilya. And I hope AI or heritage are one of the smart people in town gives him a job. The trouble is every law school in America is going woke. And Georgetown, if you give money to Georgetown down, Georgetown is no longer a Catholic university and certainly doesn't believe in the First Amendment. Georgetown is woke.

"On today's show we break down the revelations from the wall street journal's report on instagram plus the story about nikki manashian. Vaccines unfortunately keeps on giving yet. Do you ever want to hear the term ball gates stick around. I guess but first. Despite the grumbling by some over pandemic safety measures voters in california. Tuesday night appeared to send the message to governor avenue. Sim that his policies were the right way to go but no is not the only thing that was expressed tonight. I want to focus on what we said. Yes to as a statement we said yes to science we said yes to vaccines they said yes to ending this pandemic. Oh yes we did. That was newsom late. Tuesday night after easily beating back a recall effort by a margin as wide as the four zero. Five freeway gideon. It seems like how he handled the pandemic where he was. One of the most proactive governors early on and the state's current trajectory was a major factor in his victory. Yeah long gone. I guess is the memory of french laundry etc so forth So right as it stands over. Sixty percent of the state voted against the recall. According to some exit polling and more on the ground reporting the pandemic was the number one issue on voters minds. And if that's accurate it sends a pretty strong political message for democrats. Even those who are outside of california in terms of how they can and likely will continue to present their handling of the pandemic mandates etc to drive the point home in president. Biden's statement about the victory. He said in part quote this vote is a resounding win for the approach. That newsom and i share to beating the pandemic. Yes we all want to leave our homes for real. This time to that point biden was also focused on the issue of vaccine mandates yesterday. What was going on at the federal level. He was He met with the top executives of microsoft's disney kaiser permanente and others these are all companies that have at least voice support for the administration's mandate plan. Which has a reminder requires companies with one hundred or more employees to have everybody vaccinated or have employees do weekly testing if they don't get vaccinated is actually still being formally put together by the labor department so that is only a plan for now and the idea of this biden meeting with the executives was to demonstrate success in uptake among employees of these companies after the respective announcements were made and to also encourage other workplaces to pursue the same strategies the vaccine requirements work more companies or instituting. Them even at fox news require. And i'm not being facetious when i say that. But it's interesting that they've stepped forward and done that as well interesting is right at. This meeting happened. After a poll released from monmouth university found that about sixty percent of respondents said they support vaccination requirements for people like teachers federal employees healthcare workers etc. But there are still some questions about the specifics of the order coming from the executive branch that we are waiting to see and vaccine. Mandates are coming for even more people other than just private businesses and their employees. What's new there. Yes so on. Tuesday the us citizenship and immigration services said that new immigrants to the country needs to be fully vaccinated as of october first and then army officials put out a more extensive plan about what they're doing on tuesday. They said that all active duty units have to be vaccinated by december fifteenth. And those who refuse to do so without an exemption could actually end up being dismissed and even with all the encouragements and requirements. There is still some resistance in various sectors. Of course what's going on with those folks. Okay so for one. The la times has been reporting that over twenty six hundred lapd. Employees have indicated that they are going to try to get religious exemptions for new rules requiring vaccinations and then there are hundreds more doing so for medical reasons and that in total could be something. Like a quarter of the workforce believe it. I mean it is interesting that follows a federal lawsuit filed this past weekend by six. Lapd employees against the city saying that vaccine mass mandates violate rights to privacy and due process. These are folks who are quite familiar with violations of due process. So maybe it's to be believed. And as of tuesday. Something like fifty. Four percent of lapd staff have allegedly been at least partially vaccinated which is quite a bit below the city in states overall levels that also yesterday. Espn reported that the players association of the nba has not budged from its demand that players not be faced with a vaccine requirement. Something like eighty five percent are said to be back soon already though that also in that report was something else that job doubts me local requirements in places like san francisco in new york. Say that players for franchises that are based there will need to be vaccinated. Apparently we're just about a month away from the new season starting so we'll keep an eye on that and where we with. Vaccinations countrywide now. I mean we are speaking on a day. Where the latest mind. Boggling statistic is that one in five hundred americans have died from cova nineteen and according to the cdc we are still averaging well over twelve hundred deaths per day. Yeah mind. boggling is right in infuriating honestly so. Cdc data indicates that about fifty four percent of the us population is fully vaccinated at this point. Unfortunately it does seem that the uptick. Vaccinations we saw in august might have been fleeting for now at least because those rates appear to have slowed down. That's according to a bloomberg article that we can link to and this is all happening before tomorrow's meeting by the fda with an advisory board where officials are expected to vote on whether to approve a booster of the pfizer shot more on that and everything else soon but let's turn to a series of developing stories about facebook and instagram. Oh yes a few days ago. We mentioned a headline about a recent wall street journal. Report that said. The company gave almost six million high profile users protection from the company's content. Moderation rules folks like elizabeth warren candice owens brazilian soccer player neymar and obviously donald and younger donald. It seems like this plan was well intentioned at one point but as my granny always said the road to false stories about democrats eating babies and hell is paved with good intentions. She really did always but now we have even more information that basically says contrary to how zuckerberg has portrayed things publicly. facebook knows in quote acute detail that it's platforms are full of flaws that cause harm and often lacks the will or ability to address them. That checks out for me and where and how are we actually getting all these new details so all of the reporting on what i'm sharing today comes from the street journal. They have an ongoing series of articles. Podcast episodes that we can lead to our show. Notes called the facebook files. It's an investigative project in which they reviewed a host of internal facebook communications including research reports online employee discussions in drafts of presentations to senior management and interviewed dozens of current and former employees. It's not clear how the publication got access to the files but they say at least some of the documents they reviewed have been turned over to the securities and exchange commission and to congress by someone seeking federal whistleblower protection.

Signing with. That statement is simply false And and that's a that's the implication. I very much like. I want to be able to say that some people should claim false right right and so certain to find You know obviously talking about english and other languages. Do you find this to be significantly. If in other languages anyway. yes i actually. I'm very pleased. Us christian because normally philosophers don't pay a lot of attention to empirical data about cross linguistic information. I have Because i i take the significance of the ordinary uses of language very seriously as a great clue to What is would mean. I have spent quite a lot of time looking at other languages. And i feel very confident that the data strongly supports this analysis. In fact it's one of my major arguments for why this nelson's right so it's really striking fact. Many philosophers have noted that the woods should will vote can be used. Both in a directive will prescriptive way and also in a predictive way but most of them have also said.

So i'm so i'm told by by native speakers So yes i think. The data from other languages is tremendously important. And i have a little bit of looking to it. Yeah and so the man's an example.

"So one example is If you're at the dinner table and your child is talking spitting food all over the place and you say we don't talk without Full at this table. So you've said something which is clearly false. Some of us. I talking with our mouths full at the table. But by saying that you communicated demand during expectation that other people you want this to be true and you speak other people to make true so if we apply the to the the case of you should drive more slowly. I suggest that was speaking that way. I'm communicating mike expectation in my demand that you share my consent about the wellbeing of the district And so i think i climbed has prescriptive false In the if you like the more pejorative seen signal activity that we started off by talking about the making demands on you by speaking as if we shared the skull. Even though we don't so you might want to redirect and push me on this but how it's supposed to. Yeah oh so so. I guess the sort of the unified idea there. Steve so I can't get used idea that use the would should in any context. Dennis a probabilistic Now the in the car example disability low probe of something happening but that has extremely costly Outcomes if that were to happen and so even the probe ladies are lower that cost higher and ken site. I used the term shirt now. The the complication is though is that if the unified terry is showing that it is really probe listrik than if the probability assessment or in some sense cost assessment are different for different people for instance religion. You know religious There's a good often do often used these terms as says you know. They have some assessment of probability. Let's say But the the people that talking on share that right so so so don't be ultimately. Even though there is a unified system ought to be back to sorta pragmatics if probably quite different So one thing to say in response to that is that should claims on. My view can definitely be false So if the probabilities that a speaker is pointing towards not actually the case. Then this should statement is simply false on my view So if for example we have a religious teacher who say's in a you should You should Go to church every week on. I'm going to interpret that as meaning something like you know if you want to receive eternal life. Venue should go to church every weekend. Another in other words.

"Taking an umbrella has a probabilistic relationship with staying dry The the background being that. It's likely rains. They given that. It's likely rain today if you don't take an umbrella then you're probably going to get wait if you do take an umbrella. Then the probability is high that she won't get rich So the idea is that the the ultimate analysis of what you communicating if used at seasons is something about the probabilities conditional on you acting this way right so so the expectations of that quality for both parties have to be roughly the same for that work for example. If i go to a place where it doesn't rain at all and i save at Did it could be very confusing right. So isn't that kind of inclined assumption. That the both parties know of you know sort of a general. Both parties have -tations yes go. I think that's absolutely right. And so i describe my semantics as come textualist Which which means that What might look like a very simple sentence is dependent on a whole background assumption of a whole lot of other information which you didn't make explicit But you you really do rely on your conversational partner sharing that information in order to be able to understand and appreciate the truth of what you're saying so i would say look if you say that seems since in desert environments where. It hasn't rained for a year and rain is forecast for a very long time then understood in that context. It would just be false End if but if If you're in new york and melbourne and rain school cast from new york and It isn't forecast for melbourne. Then how do we figure that.

"Attics. That makes that makes sense to me. So begin to answer this question. We have to probably ask some experts but It is also possible i think as languages evolve At some point did could be all pragmatics Purely perspective you know higher. Higher levels of pragmatics Is is actually less costly so if communication is the only objective then you behave in some way but we can maybe contrast that perhaps academic environments Do you seen academic environments. You have less pragmatics company. Do you modify it typical conversational. Yes i think that would be right. yes i just thinking about this for. I'm pretty confident that that's right. That ordinary compensation has has much more robust pragmatics than academic compensation But they both very rich with pragmatic sold the same. I think i'm also thinking about the thing you started off by saying about the possibility that anguish goes on the become almost olsen cement pragmatics One thing is i mean. I think that you couldn't do without semantic sold to give because Another way of putting it is that semantics is about Science so Conventional conventional signs. The things whereas pragmatics i think is not conventional. It's it's leaning an inference but I think without conventional signs. You simply wouldn't have language So so we need Some conventions in order to communicate Yeah i was thinking conversation. Steve you know if you think about jargon and slack These types of things that actually in some sense Some sense moving from semantics. Do the almost all pragmatics rights. The objective is to just Bush something at you. Don't really care about existing semantics who you know you sort of invent a news. Yes yes i. I don't know. I think you're right So sometimes Our use of language can become very plastic and flexible And we can use woods kind of different ways given a rich enough sort of understanding of audience If we're we're all on the same page and at the same bet crowns and understand each other and then Then you don't need a whole lot of semantic detail of complexity be able to communicate a lot of information. I think that's right so so you're saying the book in the fuss chapter. You say i devastate. That the end relations theory accommodates and explains these features of features doctored practicalities can objectively systematically by appealed the basic principles of conversational pragmatics. So so going. Back to so hoppy What does information so. That's the idea that what would like ought insured in good mean. Is there about relations that things stained in to Outcomes or possible future states of the world And i think actually the talk about relations is a little vague to make it a little more concrete.

A recent college graduate who may not have a lot of direction may not have a exactly their life's purpose figured out, and they may not even have a mentor at that point. What would you Counseled them. Can't discern what is a wonderful process. It's scary, and I know that if you're in the middle of it on the beginning of it, rather that it sounds almost too much to handle. However, what I would do the way I would start with this is to engage in a regular prayer life. That is, it doesn't matter. You know there's different people. I'm somebody with very strong. And so I will never be a contemplative but I nonetheless have a prayer regiment that content that is made for my temperament. Then. I think it's very critical through the stages ofthe off change and discernment to have a spiritual director. So that person has a bit of outside perspective. Hopefully, training And they can help us to discern what is for garden. What isn't So those two things I certainly wouldn't want to put them in the direction and then a star's Your sermon is concerned. Did you notice how in my case every time the discernment came, It's actually something. It's almost like the opportunity. It didn't play attention, too, because it was in a sense to close to me or to obvious. That I ignored. I don't usually ask people to pack up their stuff and move all the way over to the other side of the world and go to China and do something over there. God will probably talk to you about something that is relatively close. If there is a change, God will make you take 1 ft at a time and take one step two steps, three steps and do logical steps within the region within the means. Did you have So we shouldn't fret about this huge life Changing decisions is all God is asking us to take one step at a time and let him lead us to where he wants us to go very few times. Did I see People will have a change in the life even in my own case, what I consider myself having in a sense been reinvented my career. But not in a knot in a watershed event. It's a gradual process afterwards. It looks like watershed, but as you go through it God is chancel. And so make sure you know, said that you hear the whisper and for that whisper You do have to get Silent and you do have to trump all used to go. Hidden from the Eucharist in front of adoration, and he would always bring in one of these yellow pads, no paper things with him. Anything. He does any riding? He did, and he planning you? He always gets there. One of the things that tried to imitate him on Go and sit in front of the Eucharist and ask for guidance and see. What comes back That's great advice. So now that you're at Catholic University and you're teaching entrepreneurship What is your big idea for the school? The Bush score. On the entrepreneurship that the big idea here is to do two things. On the one hand entrepreneurship is doing not just thinking on the big I'm very critical of business plans. In my introduction to business, every vessel student that's the way the mandatory course every business to start a business with me. And so that we're not just talking about the first thing you do when you come to a business school should be to start a business so that later on when we teach you all this other stuff, it makes sense What it's for. So that shouldn't be theory there should be practiced. That's the first thing we need to be doers creators and actually jump in and start to do this who would learn to swim under island, right? That's the first thing detective thing is this whole attitude in a mental model off seeing business as a force for good seeing business as what's the Pope Francis called a noble vocation. In that sense of being in a sense co creators participating God's creative power and that we and that that excellence of this Khun B matched with excellence in faith And be really valid path and a really beautiful path.

The Evolutionary History Of Penguins Is Far From Black And White

Many others live in warmer waters. So we're could conceivably dealing with something like minus seven degrees or even colder than out. Then, show, but lobby goes mainland has encountered temperatures that are up around one hundred degrees Fahrenheit. So how'd it penguins evolve with such different lifestyles and new study and the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences has some answers we've been able to resolve. Several. Longstanding questions about penguin evolution in particular way penguins originated. Hurry Bowie of UC Berkeley as an author on that study. He says there's been a long debate about where the first penguins evolved was it Antarctica or farther north in New Zealand as others have suggested, well armed with genetic evidence from a species of modern day penguins his team has an answer which turned out to be along the coast of Australia and New Zealand the nearby islands of the South Pacific. They say that happened around twenty two million years ago from there, the penguin served on a circular current at the bottom of the world there is a clockwise current. And so they use this current colonized like. The region Juliana of the Catholic. University. Of Chile is a CO author. She says, eleven million years ago that current revved up and penguins used it to slingshot themselves throughout the Southern Hemisphere. That's right. slingshot. The researchers also observed genetic adaptations. Some penguins picked up along the way like the ability to drink seawater also changes in how some species use oxygen allowing them to dive deep that doesn't mean. Penguins will be quick to adapt to modern day climate change. Here's Valley. Again, this adaptation to being able to occurring freezing cold waters in tropical waters occurred over a period of twenty million years, and this doesn't mean that penguins are going to be able to keep up with oceans warming today. If there is one thing, the paper makes clear. It's that the evolution of penguins for from black and

E. L. as a matter of fact and put in a variety of people on the board especially who knew nothing about retail but three of them were members of the partnership sterling investment partners and they pay themselves an obscene amount of money given that they weren't even managers they were simply directors so the lead director Charlie Sam Toro who's a who's one of the co founders of the private equity firm he paid himself one year five point three million dollars for sitting on the board for sitting on the board and the board in total pay themselves twelve point one or two million dollars which is just not I mean it's not it's there's no other way to describe it plus the usual old private equity stuff they go public a ton of the money goes to themselves in the form of a dividend and they pay themselves fees and it was a classic private equity thing where you know they're enriching themselves at the expense of the struggling company that's what's wrong with private equity they do that again and again and again so is there nothing to stop them not right now I mean the only way to stop them is to say no when they approach you to buy your company in fairways case it also had competition from whole foods and trader Joe's and then Amazon right and that's that's the other aspect that one of the other reason this this strategy was so misguided you know that that kind of food the fairway sold which was hi and cheeses and you know very high and stuff lot of variety that's already you know you're you're not competing with Safeway you're competing with whole foods are completing the trader Joe's they're already national chains and then once it was on my whole foods and dropped all the prices in the whole foods one of which was six blocks away from the the original fair way you know they were it would do is they were all kinds of trouble so eventually tell us about what happened because sterling investment partners went away right so basically at a certain point two thousand twelve or so when the company needed money sorely investment partners took the company public and within three four years the stock had gone from twenty dollars to thirty cents and they were back to ing around two hundred million dollars so they had to file for chapter eleven bankruptcy so that's the point at which sterling investment partners you know had to give up their equity had there and and leave and the company was taken over by a consortium of of the creditors including concluding Blackstone which had a forty five percent interest and they held it for about a year and then they gave it to another private equity firm or to private equity firms which include Goldman Sachs and they still couldn't make it work they still added up more debt they they haven't done anything that they should have done in the original bankruptcies go they still had all the stores as a lot of what that there's a lot of problems so they you know words basically what happened last week was the the New York Post reported that they were going to liquidate and all of New York was in shock again in shock and they then said no we're not going to liquidate and the following day they filed for chapter eleven which is you know we're reorganization now you know basically if they go back to what they were which is a chain of four or five stores mostly in New York urban stores they'll do fine they'll do fine they gotta get rid of the debt Sally other stores and go back to what they were they were not meant to be a thirty three hundred store chain they won't even meant to be fifty store chain which is what they were thanks Joe that's Joe Nocera a Bloomberg opinion column this coming up on Bloomberg opinion how Latin America's trash is brimming with hidden cache I'm June Grasso and this is the number.

How to Figure Out Anything as a Multi-Passionate Entrepreneur
"Dive on now. I feel like you need no introduction but i feel like let's do it like give me marie forleo at a glimpse yes well. You know we'll take it back for anyone listening. If we've never met before i like going back to the old days of when i popped out of college and was super excited about doing something i was hoping is going to be meaningful in the world and that would allow me freedom and to build financial oh freedom and all those things i think many of a stream of and i found myself on the floor of the new york stock exchange wall street and i was super excited john because i'm a person who has a lot of energy and and there is literally no physical seats on the floor. They have these things that pop out from the wall. They're like fold up seats but there's no real seats and i was pumped to be there. I was grateful to be there. I grew up in a working class family on the first person in my family to ever go to college. That was a really big deal and to have this job on wall street was like a._m. Proud i. I have a steady paycheck. I have health benefits like this is good and i'm not gonna lie. I was always someone who is very ambitious. I experienced a lot of pain heenan my childhood specifically around money and i saw how much pain the lack of it caused and i saw my mom go through so much feeling so powerless us around money and you know quite frankly i saw that many moms and adult women when i was growing up and so i had made a pact to myself that when i became an adult i wanted to do ever ever was possible to earn a lot of money not because i care about nice shoes or a lot of materialism. That's really that's not my life. I love experiences and i also left taking care of. If people like it's part of my nature and i wanted to be able to take care of others so at this wall street job guys around me were earning like a jillion dollars a year more money then i could have ever conceived ub growing up yet there is a big problem most of them while they seemed rich and successful and powerful on the outside seemed spiritually bankrupt one way i could see that was used to pine for these like two weeks of vacation that they had every year that that was the only thing they we had to look forward to and then of course the lifestyle of wall street was very typical of what we see you know back in the ninety s. Which was you know. The bell rings at four p._m. You hit a strip strip club. You do lines of coke and i'm like oh my god. This is so not me plus. It was ninety nine point nine percent men gender inequality and gender balance was insane. I was trying so hard to be taken seriously. I've always had very long hair but on wall street. I actually had a pixie cut. I cut off all my hair in an effort to be taken seriously. I just wind fine my spot in this world so cut to six months into that job. I started hearing this little still small voice inside that was like marie. This isn't worse must obey. This isn't what you're meant to do. You need to get out of here and that was hard to hear because that little voice was not telling me what else i was supposed supposed to do and i tried to ignore it because again. It felt wildly irresponsible. I i don't again comparable wealthy family. I didn't have a trust fund. I was tens of thousands of dollars in debt after college. Delay quitting steady job without having a backup plan seemed insane right not what i was going to do but got to the point where i could no longer ignore that voice in one day on the floor. I had what i can only describe to be some what of a mild panic annika tack. You know. I'm walking around. I started getting dizzy. I had trouble breathing. I felt like really nauseated like i was going to throw up and told my bosses like had to get out and go grab a cup of coffee thirty instead of getting the caffeine i made a beeline to the nearest church i had grown up in a catholic household and i went to a catholic university so i was kind of trained to new crisis. Ask god for help some kind of guidance. I'm sitting on the steps trinity church bawling my eyes out in my little kind of you know they give be these like dark blue blazers that you are in the floor exchange miscarriage running down my face and the first one i got was to call my dad which made sense because i was so just i. I felt so guilty to be honest with you because i knew how much he busted his ass to put me through school that i didn't want to be a disappointment so i opened my flip phone. If anyone remembers those call my pops and was just bawling my face out. I finally took a breath to catch my breath. He interrupted. He said ray com now. Now you're fine. He's like you've worked since you were nine years old. I am not worried about you keeping a roof over your head or paying your bills look. You're gonna work for the next forty forty or fifty years of your life. You have got to find something you love and if this isn't it and you're getting yourself this second this upset then you gotta adequate and you've got to do whatever it takes to find something you love and don't stop looking until you find it and so that was kind of my first permission slip you you get the f out of there but you know. I honestly had no clue how to find something. I loved and there's even a skeptical part of my brain. That was like what does that mean somewhere deep in my soul. I knew it was right so i went on a bit of an odyssey to try and find out who i was and my only clues were that i loved creativity. I was highly the creative. I thought i was going to be either an animator for disney or a painter or fashion designer and i loved business and marketing. My dad was an entrepreneur in a small business owner and i got to see him operate his small printing business growing up so i thought magazine publishing might be the place for me right. There's like the the editorial side and there's the ad side commerce business art all of it and so. I got a job at gourmet magazine in their ad sales department. I was like okay. This is going. It'll be and it's gonna be awesome right now. In terms of the landscape there was many more women. My boss was a woman. The publisher of the magazine was a woman. They were all amazing. I'm like like this is wonderful. I love to eat it was gourmet by my little cubicle was next to the test kitchen so the chefs would be like hey. We're trying out this new recipe. Do you want to chase yeah. That's right. I was like who has to like this on your police. Bring the snacks but the same thing happened about six months. I started hearing that voice jonah voice right. This isn't who you're supposed to be and then i started to really feel a sense sense of panic because i watched my peer group around me. They were all starting to get promotions. They were all kind of getting this foothold in their life and here i was wanting to quit. Quit my job yen so i thought to myself okay. Wall street was very numbers focused. The ad sales side of a magazine is very numbers focused. Maybe i have gone too far on that nightside. Maybe i need to really strengthen my creativity. What if i'm supposed to be on the editorial side so hustled my buns off. I got a position as a fashion assistant at mademoiselle and i was like okay. This is gotta be at gona photo shoots fashion shows in the new product lines you know working with layouts like all these highly creative things and when she now at six months in same thing started happening at and i have to be honest here because i started started to feel really broken you know i had graduated the valedictorian of my class and i'm a very hard worker and couldn't square. How can i be this committed to doing really good work and this freaking clueless about who i am in this world like why does nothing fit and so when i was at that the job i was on the internet one day probably when i shouldn't have been and i stumbled upon what was a new profession at the time now you gotta get guys. This is nineteen ninety nine like nine hundred ninety nine. It was talking about this new profession called coaching which at that point no one had ever heard of before jenna when i read this article all about people that had these coaching businesses about how it was so focused on co creating strategies with people it was very positive. It was very forward moving. It sounded really exciting. It was as though something inside of my heart broke open. It was like the clouds parted and little cherubs. We're we're seeing like little sunbeam's. Shooting out of there is right into my heart and something about it just felt so right. However my very critical mind signed immediately stepped in. Who do you think you are who the hell is gonna hire a twenty-three-year-old life coach. You haven't even lift life yet. You can't even keep a job for more than six months your ten thousand dollars in debt. You have nothing to offer anyone. This is nuts. This is crazy by the way how cheesy is a term life coach which so that's where i was but i couldn't deny that this was the right thing i had ever felt in terms of calling and so i signed up for three year coach training program with coach university and i continue to work at the magazine during the day can i was my paycheck. That's how things went fast forward a few months. I got a call all from the h._r. Department at conde nast publications. They had a promotion for me. It was an opportunity at folk more money a lot more prestige staying on that steady paycheck health benefits train and that jenna was my work on the road a on the safe path or do i do this weird thing called life life coaching which no one has ever heard of i think as cheesy as hell but sounds amusing and so i quit my job and i went back to bartending in waiting tables else and decided to start my business at twenty three so what has happened since twenty three because has happened and i'm juiced just giggling as you're talking because i feel like every listener can relate to these voices the one that is like who do you think you are in the one that is like you you were made for this and like it's just this constant conversation in our heads in if if the world saw the conversations that you're having in our heads we would look like geico
Why one nun keeps a skull on her desk
"You're listening to the crosswalk with deacon Kevin Andrews a show about living life at the intersection of faith, family and vocations. And now your host deacon Kevin good afternoon. Thanks for tuning into the crosswalk today here on the radio network. I'm your host deacon Kevin Andrews. So if you're at home, if you're at work here in your car, just want to again, take the time to to think you for being a part of the bigger radio family in join us here on the show today. We're kind of picking up on that theme of vocations again, picking up from where we left off last week with our interview with other Kyle Manno the priests with a Mike in change in tunes a little bit and my guest today. Joining me by phone sister, Teresa leitheid noble. She is a daughter of Saint Paul and she has a skull on her desk as a memento Mori a reminder of her inevitable death. The ancient practice of remembering death recommended by scripture in many church fathers, and countless census changed her life and lead. To greater peace in union with God. She tweets about memento Mori at her Twitter account at pursued by truth. She is the author of remember your death. Memento Mori journal available now on Pauline dot org. And she has other book. Remember your death? Memento Mori lenton devotional that will be coming out this lent. Sisterly thea. Welcome to the crosswalk. Thanks so much for having on taking. Yeah. So before we get into the what the momentum Maury, and what that is. I think it's important. It's a great story that you have of your journey of faith because you are once in eighth Theus before you became a daughter of Saint Paul maybe just listener a little bit of background on your years. You're formidable years growing up, and how was that you left the faith and became an atheist, and then kind of came back to to your faith in the church. So I I was raised by two very faithful Catholics. And but I I was always a doubtful child from the very beginning. Just kind of always asking questions and pushing back on things, and I remember the first time, I doubted whether God existed, I was five years old. So that was just kind of my way of being actually still is, and but that combined with the problem of suffering and some difficulties that my family face that it just really felt were unjust. And I just couldn't I couldn't I couldn't imagine a good God allowing those things to happen. And so when I was about fourteen I told my parents, you know, I don't really believe in God anymore, and one other thing that kind of pushed me towards atheism was I was observing some of the Catholics that we were that our family associated with and since my dad worked at a Catholic university. And he also he then worked at a diocese. And so we we were surrounded by very faithful Catholics, but I saw some hypocrisy and bad behavior that made me think as a teenager, you know, I wanna be a good person. But I think. I can do this on my own. And so kind of all of those factors together came together in this world. Wind of teenage angst and fourteen years old. I told my parents, I don't believe in God anymore. Don't wanna be confirmed, and this is not a faith. So I was an atheist and away from the church for almost a dozen years. And I I was still searching, and I searched in in different ways. I think at first I didn't search. I just thought I this is what I believe, and I was just a materialist atheist. But then that one point I, and it was actually a upon the death of a friend that made me think I'm going to explore. What other religions say about death and the afterlife and life and the meaning of life, and I really thought I would just kind of do it to dismiss it alternately in the end. But in that exploration. I I was wrestling with different things that kind of move me closer to believe. In god. But I could never really make that leap. I was getting closer intellectually.
