A Brief History of the English-American Experiment With Bill Federer
"Being the Americans, we kind of go into the private property direction, right? Yeah, so England tried a 15 year American experiment called the English Commonwealth. So the King Charles the first got defeated and 16 40 or so and got his head chopped off. In the glorious revolution. This is prior to that, but that is a key revolution in 1688. But this was like 1649 to 1660. It's called the English Commonwealth. It was an American experiment of a Commonwealth of covenant. They had no king. Oliver Cromwell refused to take the title of the king, he called himself lord protector. He did an okay job. He dies, his son, Richard, can't keep it together. And so William Penn's dad, sales he's an admiral. Sales over to Europe puts Charles the second on the throne brings him back and re Institutes the monarchy. And in exchange he gets in a state in Ireland and then he's a famous admiral and then of course his son found Pennsylvania. But so they had an American experiment for 15 years, but they brought the king back. America, because of a 3000 mile ocean, because Europe was the chessboard in America was sort of an afterthought. I mean, we lost money. It wasn't like Spanish gold anywhere. It was a loser. And because of that, the king said, look, just don't cost me any money and stay out of my hair. And so for almost a century and a half, the Americans got to practice self government, like training wheels. And that's the dilemma. We go into these countries, we get rid of Saddam Hussein. We give them a constitution identical to ours almost. And then one election cycle they vote in Sharia law. And we scratch our heads thinking gee, why didn't our farmer government work? It's like duh, they have an Islamic soil that you planted the seed in, where an America you had a predominantly judeo Christian soil. The Berlin Wall comes down. Help them set up governments almost identical to ours. It gets taken over the bly that black market, the mafia, the organized crime, we scratch our heads, thinking, why didn't it turn out like America? Well, you planted the seed in an atheistic soil. They had 70 years of atheism, right? And so it worked in America. You have seed and soil or form of governments like a genetically engineered seed, but you plant seeds in soil and the soil is a predominantly judeo Christian populace. Right. So that's why it worked in

It was more than an echo. It was a reflex. Blow man withdrawing within himself in presence of these imposing vicissitudes began to take pity upon mankind to reflect upon the bitter disillusionment of life of this sentiment which to the heathen was despair. Christianity fashioned melancholy at the same time was born the spirit of scrutiny and curiosity. These great catastrophes were also great spectacles. Impressive cataclysms it was the north hurling itself upon the south the roman world changing shape the last convulsive throws of a whole universe in the death. Agony as soon as that world was dead low clouds of rhetorician grammarians sophists swoop down like insects on its immense body people saw them swarming and heard them buzzing in that seat of putrefaction.

Surely it must have been a keen satisfaction to those anatomist of the mind to be able at their debut to make experiments on a large scale to have a dead society to dissect for their first subject.

We beg pardon for setting forth result which the reader has probably already foreseen from what has been said above previously following there in the course pursued by the ancient polytheism and philosophy the purely epic muse of the ancients had studied nature and only a single aspect casting aside without pity almost everything in art which in the world subjected to its imitation had not relation to a certain type of beauty a type which was magnificent at first but as always happens with everything systematic became later times false trivial and conventional christianity. Leads poetry to the truth like it. The modern news will see things in a higher and broader light. It will realize that everything in creation is not humanly beautiful that the ugly exists beside the beautiful the unshakably beside the graceful the grotesque on the reverse of the sublime evil with good darkness with light it will ask itself if the narrow and relative sense of the artist should prevail over the infinite absolute sense of the creator if it is for man to correct god if mutilated nature will be the more beautiful for the mutilation if art has the right to duplicate so to speak man life creation if things will progress better when their muscles and their vigor have been taken from them if in short to be.

The tragedy encourages the heroes gives descriptions summons and expels the daylight rejoices. Laments sometimes furnishes. The scenery explains the moral bearing.

Modern Oracles and Astrology
"Welcome to kids myths and mystery signer host. Kit chrome with this podcast. I begin a month long examination of modern oracle's and their methods of divination last friday. I mentioned how not all forms of designation demand a psychic or even a sensitive one. Such form of discrimination astrology as common popular astrology is today is complex but as mentioned does not rely on the reader having psychic abilities instead relies heavily on planets and stars. Initially you might scoff at the idea of pulling any kind of prophecy from the heavenly bodies. But let's take a look at the history of astrology. Mayan astrology is a variation of mesoamerican astrology. One of the most forward thinking kinds of astrology of times. Mayan calendar's comprised of twenty day signs and thirteen galactic numbers. Making two hundred sixty day. Calendar year the mayan study of the moon planets milky way son was some of the most accurate pre telescope astronomy in the world. Mayan astrology goes back to around the fifth century bc. Then we have england stonehenge. Gerald hawkins work on stonehenge was first published in nature magazine in nineteen sixty three following analysis. He had carried out using a harvard. Smithsonian ibm computer. Hawkins found. Not one or two alignments but dozens. He had studied one hundred. Sixty five significant features at the monument and use the computer to check every alignment between them against every rising and setting point for the sun moon planets and bright stars the position say would have been in in fifteen hundred bc so has astrology around for a while no doubt but let's go back to present to find out how astrology works. Here's a simple answer. Astrology works on many levels at the simplest level. It is not unlike a complex clock the uses the motions of the planets in a similar way to the movement to the hands on the face of a clock. Now let's dig a little deeper. Astrology is the belief that the alignment of stars and planets affects every individual mu personality and environment depending on when he or she was born. Astrologers print horoscopes and newspapers that are personalized by birthday. These horoscopes make predictions in people's personal. Lives describe their personalities and give them advice. All according to the position of astronomical bodies a survey conducted by the national science foundation found that forty one percent of respondents to their poll. Believe that astrology is very scientific. This begs the question astronomical bodies affect our lives. Solar flares cost electro magnetic disturbances on earth. That can disrupt satellites and even caused blackouts. The position of the moon costs us ocean tides. If you're a fisherman that position of the moon can have a significant effect on your livelihood. The solar wind causes beautiful aurora and sunlight itself is the main source of energy for our planet. Still the question. How is strategy as a tool of divination astrology uses a set of rules about the relative positions and movements of heavenly bodies to generate predictions and explanations for events on earth and human personality traits. Some used astrology to generate very specific expectations. It could be verified against outcomes. What does science have to say about astrology. Simply that it's not scientific yet.

The Years (plural) Without A Christmas
"Of christmas it is indulgence. Christmas has long been time to break out the good booze and gorge yourself on sweet desserts made with expensive imported spices. To say nothing of the gift giving you know who didn't like all of those things oliver cromwell when he and his puritan forces took over england in sixteen forty five. They vowed to do away with decadence and went full. Alan rickman sheriff of nottingham and cancelled. Christmas shops were ordered to stay open on december. Twenty fifth and soldiers patrolled the streets with orders to seize any and all food. They found being prepared for a feast. It would take no less than restoring a king to the throne in this case. Charles the second to get christmas back. Puritans weren't exclusive to their native england and a bunch of them thought the spoiled beauty of the new world could really use some severe self-denial the puritans we refer to as pilgrims and about whom many myths were dispelled in. Our recent thanksgiving episode were even more orthodox in their puritanism than cromwell bonus fact that parallels the split between the amish and the mennonites. The amish broke off because the mennonites weren't strict enough since the puritans were among the first europeans to establish themselves in what would become america celebrating. Christmas was not a thing. It wasn't simply that they didn't celebrate it themselves. They didn't want anyone to celebrate the holiday. They had dubbed fools tied as an england shops and schools were expected to be open though. Interestingly churches were ordered to be closed on christmas one of the two days a year when even the laziest christian can be bothered to turn up. It was more than the frivolity and gluttony that they minded they viewed it as not properly christian. Puritans followed the bible very strictly. If something wasn't in the bible like taking any day for rest other than a sunday it might as well have come straight from the devil that would include the idea of resting on the day that jesus was born but since the bible also doesn't specify what day that is no big loss s historian stephen this inbound explains puritans were fond of saying that if god had intended for the anniversary of the city to be observed he would surely have given some indication as to when that anniversary occurred. The date of december twenty fifth wasn't officially the mass of christ until the fourth century. When pope julius the first subsumed the roman festival of saturnalia into a christian celebration. Which gave us some of our most enduring traditions like holly in candles. Puritans were also not keen on the papacy so they didn't care if it was official for twenty two years from sixteen fifty nine to sixteen eighty one. The celebration of christmas was actually outlawed. In the massachusetts bay colony the law went into effect one year after the brits had gotten their christmas restored by well the restoration the laws stated that in order to prevent disorders to the great dishonour of god and offensive others. Anyone found celebrating the holiday. Either by forbearing of labor feasting or any other way would be find a hefty five shillings on one christmas day. Plymouth governor william bradford noticed some people playing an old equivalent of baseball and ordered them all to get back to work. Now would be an appropriate time. If i make an aside and i may because it's my show to remind people that religious freedom is when you say that's against my religion. I can't do it but religious freedom does not mean that's against my religion. You can't do it. Even after the ban on christmas was repealed in sixteen. Eighty one staunch puritans still fought against christmas celebrations for decades in sixteen eighty six. The newly appointed governor of the dominion of new england closed shops on christmas day and sponsored a holiday service. This idea was unpopular enough with enough people. That soldiers had to accompany the governor to church. Those sorts of protests of christmas would continue but their focus would shift from celebrating at all to the way in which it was celebrated and what a way it was. We aren't talking about a family sing. Song and three helpings of pie or even old timey whistling colonial celebrations of christmas looked more like mardi gras mashed with halloween. If it took place during spring break drunken revellers take to the streets wearing scary masks or dressed like animals singing boisterously and demanding food drink and money under threat of violence ad in the ancient pagan roots of those practices. And we see that. The puritans had quite a lot to get their noses out of joint about boston minister. Cotton mather preached to his congregation more than thirty years. After the law's repeal the feast of christ's nativity is spent in reveling dicing carding masking. And in all licentious liberty by mad mirth by long eating by hard-drinking i- lewd gaming await. Those are meant to be bad things. After the american revolution or the kerfuffle of ungrateful colonials as the british call at surreal thing. You don't have to google it. Just trust me. English customs fell out of favor and since celebrating. Christmas had come over from england. It began to peter out to. It wasn't even declared a federal holiday until after the civil war in eighteen seventy. It was around that time that americans. Reinvented christmas and it changed from a raucous pagan carnival.

you should thanks for joining us hi thanks for having me so let's spend a minute on each of the women that have been nominated them let's start with a livia wild and book smart this movie came out and it was a little bit mis marketed what did you say yeah I think that the initial marketing was kind of like super bad but for girls which I think under cells just how lovely a movie it is and it's a very genuine film it has a pair of performances at the Leeds Caitlyn Devers and beanie felt seen that our breakout performances I think we're gonna see them everywhere over the next decade or two and a live you wild is a great director and I think with comedies especially we overlook direction we don't think about the person behind the camera we don't think about the way the movies are shot this is a very well shop movie and one of the reason is so successful is that what she's doing with it let's take a listen to a clip of livia wild this is from the BBC talking about her work as a director at the premiere the film which is in south by southwest in Austin Texas which is where I intended and hoped we would premiere because I really love the festival there was a young woman in the audience who came up to the microphone for the queue in a after the film and there was a Levin hundred people in the audience the first time I've shown it to that many people she became very emotional and she said thank you I feel scene and she specifically said that she had been the valedictorian in her high school she's gonna to make the speech at the graduation and when she looked under the crowd she realized she knew no one and she realized that moment she had never felt connected enough to know anyone here and that this movie have brought that all home and she felt scene and that continues to happen as we kind of show it to people for different reasons people are seeing themselves in different ways and that there can't be anything better so that's really interesting I usually what did you think her strength was a first time director I really think he if you listen to or read any of the interviews that she's done she really thought that this moment as a collaborative experience and so you know a lot of her cast mates were younger you know teenagers early twenties and there were moments where she would turn to them for advice on whether a line was working whether a motivation for a character with believable or not because really hurting to take cues from her actors I think is definitely one of the strengths of bookmarks all right we're starting to get some votes in already we have a vote for hang on here we go Melinda Melina Matsoukas queen and swim she said the film felt more consistent and move towards conclusion more cohesively than it little women so a lot of people have been talking about Greta girl way I usually what did you think of of queen and slim I really liked and I think as a first time director Molina's shows so much Asian and granted this is our first time directing a feature she has directed other sort of shorter films including eliminated and she bit her name it with a lot of like musically based film and I think she has a real vision for crafting just beautiful images most of the the movie sat down south and Louisiana and some other parts of the south and she just like really able to capture these beautiful images of the south and also beautiful images of black people I don't know if you heard our previous guest he was talking about the the the gatekeepers and Hollywood and one of the things that she was describing as age a way to get more people in the system is to take directors who haven't gone the traditional route because the traditional really is mostly for young not available guy his yeah and the idea of taking people who have made extraordinary music videos or who have worked in different aspects of production it seems like Molina's one of these people definitely yeah I'll get somebody we got a vote for Lulu weighing for the fare well what do you think about the fare well I have the fear what was one of my favorite movies last year it was based on the this American life segment and blue wing was writing about her family and her own experiences and it is melancholic but funny in a low key way and getting gauges with the complications of the immigrant experience in a really wonderful way and it for me personally I had a very close relationship with my grandmother anyone who has had that kind of familiar relationship you're going to fall in love with name a in the movie wonderful wonderful and I think that she is somebody who would have deserved a Best Director nomination in almost any other year she probably gotten even the movie did very well the it depends spirit awards at picked up one of

An Interview with SEC Chairman Jay Clayton
"And that we're going to get back to a conversation between David Rubenstein, co founder of the Carlisle group and host of the Bloomberg television show here to peer conversations and SEC chairman, Jay Clayton when you were a lawyer, you had very highly compensated, associates, and partners, working with you on behalf accompanies SEC pays government salaries richer. Let's say modest to say the least I wonder can you really get good people to stay there because you don't pay them that much. Yes, we, we have terrific people. We really don't okay, it's they can keep up with the, the private sector bar, and things like that, that are filing information all the time in the investment banks, I think you'd you tell me, I think our people have the respect of Wall Street, well, they are respected. And if anybody's watching this, and the look, anything I might be filing. Yes. They're very good people, and they do a great job. I just wondered whether there so under compensate. I was trying to get them as well. You know what if you can help them help me, get them a raise? Let's do it. Let's go through insider trading from the supreme court has ruled on a couple of cases against the SEC arguing that you were to tough. I guess on enforcing law. Is that a fair reading just one? We just one one the other day, which felt pretty good. Okay. But how do you not lost a few in the supreme court there, there were there were a few that we lost? And the main argument is that the courts mission Turpin of the law, when when you lose or how, you know, I think I look insider trading is actually a very delicate enforcement issue because you could have a rule that said anytime that you have information that everyone else, doesn't you can't trade. Now anytime you have material non public information, you can't trade. Well, that would discourage people from finding out things about companies. And one of the policing mechanisms in our market is private investors going looking at companies and whether the. The truth or not. So we want to encourage that kind of behavior, we want to encourage people to investigate companies the theory is that it's everybody should have access the same information. So if you're a corporate CEO, and you tell me a private citizen, you're about the by a company of the big premium. I'm not supposed to take that information. Go buy stock because it's unfair to the market, correct. That's suppose I'm sitting in emergency room of a hospital waiting to, you know, just have some something looked at by emergency room person. I'm not really that ill. And somebody wheels in the chairman of the Federal Reserve Board and the person says this person's had a fatal heart attack, or potentially fatal heart attack, very serious. If I see the person being wheeled in can I go and call my broker and say, I think the markets are going to go down because he's a very popular person can I trade on that it's a great question because that does show the like where do we draw the fairness line? If you're the doctor, you, we would say you have a duty. To keep information about the fed person confidential and no one would expect you to trade on information. You obtained by being a doctor. But if you happen to be standing there at the emergency room when he or she gets wheeled in. That's that information you didn't acquire any various way or any trust or confidence way. And you should be able to trade on that just like if you saw people loading bricks instead of computers into the back of a truck, I suppose somebody is a corporate CEO, and they mentioned to me that he or she is a big company. They're going to pull out of Britain because of Brexit. They're not happy with, and that will have a big deleterious effect on British economy. Is it okay to take that information and short the pound because let's say this information would short the pound or make the pound go down. Is that a problem because it's not a security, you can buy and trade dollars. Bills or pounds. Is that a problem for the if I did that we don't police non securities transactions like that? So a currency transaction would be outside of our jurisdictional you would say I did that. That's okay. It. The answer. Is it depends? But all right. Check with your lawyer. Okay. What about crypto currencies? You've said they are not securities. Is that right? A bit. Well, just because you call something cryptocurrency doesn't mean it's not a security. Oh, we've seen a lot of things that people call cryptocurrency that are, in fact securities. But he referenced one bitcoin, which we have looked at and is not a security explained to the average person. How many members of the are there, we have forty five forty six hundred employees. Okay. And how many commissioners, there are five, and they're all pointed by the president, I'd states and confirmed by the Senate. And did you have to be from a certain party or not? I believe the way the rule rates. You cannot have more than three from the same party. So let's talk about how you came to be the chairman of the SEC, you grew up in Pennsylvania. Hershey, Pennsylvania initially, initially Hershey, Pennsylvania new went to Cambridge and then you play basketball at Cambridge shorter. You came back. And you went to university of Pennsylvania law school. And you did very well thought near the top of your class, you clerked for a federal judge, then you went to Sullivan and Cromwell one of the most successful law firms in the United States. And then all of a sudden you become chairman of the SEC where you known to the president. Did you know President Trump? No, it's actually an interesting story. A client of mine asked me to go to Trump Tower to brief some people in the transition. And how our capital markets were functioning and areas for improvement. And one thing led to another. And when you some interviews and then, and then I interviewed with the president. Okay. Did he have any tough questions tough for the minor? You're pretty good. But my told he was very impressed with you. And he said, this person looks like these should be determined. The SEC were you surprised that he offered you the job? We, we had a really good discussion. Okay, because I, I think you're always surprised when you're off the job like this. So the president proposed that you become a chairman of the SEC when you do that you have to sell all your securities. You have to give up your partnerships. They didn't tell me all that. They didn't tell you. So today, does a congress bother you on a day-to-day basis? They say go regulate this, or do that, or you know what I EV every minute, I spend up there is valuable because it's real. It is really good to hear from members and senators from from both parties what they think we should be doing. It's good to know how someone looks at you. When they when they, you know, they're, they're my board of directors, is the White House for the president. They call you with advice or suggestions, or not that much, not so much are there any signs, you see the economy that people should be worried about is if they're an investor, or you don't really get into whether the economy is weakening, and therefore, maybe they should be cautious on their investments, macro.

"Welcome back. Everybody ethnic Gilio here. We are live in the AllState skyline studio here until five AM. Steve Grzanich has the opening bell at five and my main man Steve Cochran at six for your morning drives Monday morning, that means my dad's gonna call in and tell a joke joke jokey jokey time, and we're talking about the Star Trek movies, really fun piece written by Eric Diaz from unnoticed dot com. We're talking about the best Star Trek movies. He ranked him from worst to best and we are getting near the top five here. We are in fact into top five number five on his list. Moving up is Star Trek first contact while the TNG crew had a rough time of it with their entries in the movie series. They got one genuine classic out of the bunch with first contact in many ways, the film borrows from the best of the original series features films before it, but does so in a good way. Sequel to a beloved TV episode, check Moby, Dick inspired revenge story. I'll I wrath of contract time travel like voyage home check. They take off all the right boxes. The plot has the federation nemesis. The Borg go back in time to when. Oh, this is the one with the Borg. Okay. So this is. Liked to stop the first contact between the vulcans and humanity before stopping the federation from ever forming Picard and the crew of newly minted enterprise e go back to stop them from interfering with the first ever warp flight carried out by zephyr and Cochran played by veteran actor James Cromwell. Oh, yeah. Ever got James Cromwell was in this one man. This is a good one. Who is a welcome addition to the cast as for Woodard as his assistant lily Ellis creatures the board Queen. Even gives a bad idea on paper giving the board collective and individual leader in a pretty spectacular result. Although technically an ensemble film. This is really a Picard movie through and through the captain has to get through his own anger and trauma at what the board did to him on the TV series when they assimilated him into a collective and made him low low cut us causing hundreds of death and Patrick Stewart. Just brings it when he hisses out the line must be drawn here this far no further. You know, he means business commander himself Jonathan Frakes directed this entry, and he gives almost everyone in the crew something to do that matters to the story. But never forgets that it's chiefly Jean-Luc regard story. This is the TNG writing directing and acting staff firing also Anders, and it never got better than this for them on the big screen. Let's see seven six five area code since his top five Rathikant first contact undiscovered country. The voyage home in a search for Spock. Eight one five area code says star Star Trek the motion picture was very disappointing. Best is wrath of Khan. I also liked undiscovered country. Six away. Eight area says Star Trek to was an extended story of space seed, Star Trek four was originally and very creative. Yeah. Now, we're up to Star Trek four. The undiscovered country after Star Trek five got a horrible reviews and underwhelming box office, the prevailing thought at paramount was to reboot the original characters with a set of younger actors giving the enterprise crew in origin story, but with the twenty fifth anniversary of the franchise around the corner wiser heads prevailed at the studio and decided that William Shatner, Leonard nimoy in the rest of the original crew had one more movie left in them. And they they deserved a good swansong wrath of Khan's nNcholas Meyer returned to direct working from a story that he and Leonard nimoy concocted and together they made sure that Star Trek sixty undiscovered country was the finale the original crew deserved like the best of the classics series. This entry used real world situations as the basis for the story in this case. The fall of the Berlin Wall with the Klingon empire standing in for the USSR. Combining the allegorical element where they wonderful who done it aboard the enterprise and a great villain and Christopher plumbers Klingon commander Chang, all the right ingredients came together for a terrific movie in a great finale for the original series crew. Number three is Star Trek for the voyage home having gone through life, death and life again together the enterprise crew needed to lighten up a bit and they did what Star Trek for the voyage home using two of the most oft used tropes of the original series time, travel and social commentary. This entry in the series winds up working on almost every level. But that's mostly because after all the high drama in the previous two installments. They decided a little comedy was what the series needed and they were right? But just because it's funny doesn't mean it's not an interesting story going on the alien probe comes to earth in wreaks havoc because the humpback whale species. They're trying to communicate with is now long extinct the enterprise crew dishonored in a rusty old Klingon bird of prey after the events of the previous film. Go back in time to bring the whales into their future in an effort to save earth. It sounds silly on paper. But it all works like gangbusters on screen, the humor in the film is smart and not slapsticky and save the whales commentary works, but it doesn't feel ham fisted Leonard nimoy returned to the director's chair for this one proving Star Trek three was no fluke. And thus began a long feature film, directing career nNcholas Meyer also helped the story as well for years. This was the most popular Star Trek movie at the box office because fan or not it's just a great time at the movies and also makes entries two three and four form a nice little trilogy and the original series ended there. It would have not been the worst thing. Coming in at number two. This is a this is pretty high on the list is the Jj Abrams two thousand nine version of Star Trek. Wow. Coming in higher than than the whales when Jj Abrams big screen reboot of Star Trek came out. The franchise was dead as a doornail the previous TV series enterprise. Was never really clicked with viewers and was the first truck show to get cancelled since the original the prevailing thought was that Star Trek as a franchise had its day. Then JJ comes along and reinvigorates the film series with an incredibly rewatch -able and fun entry one that gives the classic enterprise crew, the origin story they never had before. And finds a way to give Leonard nimoy Spock a proper swansong as well. Star trek. Oh, nine became the biggest grossing film in the franchise, and it's even adjusted for in from info infl- inflation. None of this would have worked if the recasting of the original crew wasn't as impeccable as as it was the giant boots to fill and everyone from Chris pine Zachary Quinto, right down to Antonio Elkin as checkoff do their best to evoke the original characters without resorting to impersonations. Okay. Maybe Karl urban is doing a bones impression. But it's so good. I don't care. There are tons of callback city original series in the first round of films, and it feels very clever. The story moves it a crackling pace, and even if it's ridiculous that James Kirk goes from cadet to captain over the course of one film JJ works. His magic. The movie get some hate from hardcore trek loyalists, but I think it's just sour grapes that they're once cult franchise was fodder for a movie that was mainstream and crowd-pleasing is this one. And then number one we've mentioned it already many many times. And I think most people would agree with this. According to. Eric Diaz at noticed its Star Trek to the wrath of Khan, which I think is absolutely the best Star Trek movie. The second Star Trek feature film should have been a total cluster paramount had several different scripts that they were considering and they couldn't find one that they liked Leonard nimoy adamantly did not want to come back spot. For after the last film didn't satisfy him and threatened to fire his agent, if he ever mentioned the word Star Trek to him again, the budget was going to be significantly lower than the previous film, all of this was a recipe for disaster. But then producer Harvey Bennett hired a young genius named nNcholas Meyer to direct who had recently directed time travel thriller time after time and he managed to do perform a miracle. He took the best elements of the various scripts. They had one about the return of TV series villain Khan, another about Genesis device that creates worlds one about kirks long lost son and put them all together into one amazing script. This was now a story about aging and death mistakes of the past coming back to haunt you in the sacrifices one mix in the name of friendship. Meyer. We've done a great death scene to lure nimoy back, and it turned into one of the actors finest moments at that killer. Moby dick. Inspired revenge story is a sublime villain played by Ricardo Montalban a submarine like battle in a nebula and a great score by the late James Horner. Not only the best Star Trek movie of all time, but one of the best science fiction films of all time period Star Trek to wrath of calm. Save the franchise without it. We wouldn't have had the film series much less a next generation or any other Star Trek series on TV spock's death resulted in a new life for the franchise and the franchise has been chasing con ever since both nemesis and into darkness try to eight this movie way too much, but the film set a high bar neither of those two movies could ever come close to this movie's perfection, it almost certainly would no matter how many Star Trek movies come down the pipeline in the years to come the wrath of Khan will remain the gold standard. Yeah. So good list. Nice job. Emerson wrath of Khan. At the old Esquire theatre on rush near or at oak near rush. And I remember it was a lot at that point with like the loudest movie I've ever seen the sound was ridiculous. I mean, they had the Dolby crazy seventy seventy millimeter to Dolby sound. I just remember going. My god. This is the loudest movie slash movie. I've ever seen in my life and loved it. So I was in high school now one came out that was a good movie. All right, there you go.

"But once he was at Sullivan and Cromwell kill had access to a treasure trove of information like never before the deal flow is so much greater because you know, this is a firm one thousand people at time doing takeovers all over the place. To get information. He didn't just use information on deals he worked on as a first year lawyer, and then a second Lord, he would do something that we call spunky. So at nighttime we had realized that you couldn't work late enough in York's it'd be the last guy in the office because everyone's working really really hard there. We'd realize you can't be the first person in the morning. So we had researched. It we'd study it. And we said about three forty five in the morning. That's when the firm thousand is empty, so what we did was I'm in Toronto. And my job was to call him in York and wake him up above before three o'clock because he had said that if I have to wake up which is him I would have to wake up in Toronto. So my job was being Larn. Plus I'd like wake them up. And then like, hey, you wake basically yell at him. Get a go to work, and he would wake up, and he would go to the firm and he'd go from office to office desk garbage Kanter garbage, cans, promote half an hour with the firm is empty and look through the deaths and look for dealing formation. So that's why we had so many deals over this period of time. It's like for for finding things in someone else's, you know, random off the summer or garbage can and he would always carry a book with him when he's going to office office because he said if someone confronted me and say four in the morning, what are you doing here? He would see would hold up the book and say, I was just looking for this book. They had other strategies to these big firms have nighttime staff they would come in. And we had discovered that the firm leaves a generic password for a nighttime staff. So everyone around the world that would have the password. So we said, well, why don't we use this generic password? So they can't figure out who's using it within the firm. So he would find the passer and just go through the computer system and check, you know, the lawyers who are emanate mergers acquisitions, and we check their files over and over again. So that that lawyer would check their files, and they'd say well generic nightime password person looked at it doesn't say where they can pinpoint. So we thought that was great way to get information soon. They were making a million dollars of individual trades certain point time, we had so much money that we want to separate ourselves from the trades even more. So we set up trading accounts in non-resident, so Bahamas, Cayman Islands, Switzerland. These type of places decals were registered under names like I need money and threw God all things are possible. And now you have money in an account say four. In country. Let's say Bahamas. How do you get it till you can use it here the answer right Lisette, I said it it gonna gonna send send mice? mice. By Las Vegas. They'd wire the money from their offshore accounts to casinos in Vegas. So my job was to get the money out of the casinos. Now, you've wirelessly one hundred thousand dollars into the cage. How do you get it out? So I would gamble at the blackjack table. So I would learn how to be successful that. So the cost of that wasn't high. I learned how to count cards, and then you play a little bit, and you take your chips, and you'd either hand the chips to my co accusing cash if you want some of the money, why gore the cage and get cash and then bring the cash back and this was before nine eleven where you could bring cash into candidate after nine eleven they needed a new strategy. So instead of casinos they'd bet on both sides of the same sports game. So and then you take their ticket back to Canada, and you'd mail to Vegas with your passport, and they mail your check back. They would say sports books winnings on it..
