Rudy Giuliani Remembers the NYC Threat Assessment Pre-9/11
"By the time you were mad, you shared something very interesting about the threat assessment is the targets for terrorist attack in New York. When it comes to Washington, it was clear The Pentagon military power, you're thinking of Congress for flight 93. But the World Trade Center wasn't the top ranked target, was it, mister mayor. No, it was actually. The stock exchange. And if you think about it, the World Trade Center, the World Trade Center was not the center of trade. I think they thought it was. We don't really do a lot of trading in the World Trade Center. If you wanted to hit the center of trade, you would hit the New York Stock Exchange. It's an office building and a big office building. And an important enough is building with very critical functions, but it's not much different than another office building in New York. Where it was a, from their point of view, a good target is it was a transportation hub. So it really, really for a long period of time made a major dent in transportation. Also, any place down there would be a tough place to hit, but because of what was across the street, which I don't even think they knew, the major electric lines all Lower Manhattan because AT&T was there. And the AT&T building was collaterally hit with a big hole in the center of it. So it would put out electricity in all of Lower Manhattan. And finally, the part of the city that they hit. They may have known this is literally underwater. So there was a danger there that never happened, thank God that that whole area could have been slowly. Because the slurry walls that keep out the Hudson River were damaged. So let's say we had had even a mild hurricane. We could have flooded out all of our Manhattan. So the first thing we did was furiously put those story walls back together and just pray for no rain.
Golf Fans Just Want the Best Players to Play
"That's it. End of story, then you don't have to worry about it. I mean, I know he's screwed with Tiger, creating his own tour of the Rory tour whenever people want to call it, but I don't know, man. The thing about Rory is like, still got Greg off ahead of him. It goes without saying, but he's not 21. Right. Or whatever. There's going to be all sorts of people coming up. So like, what's this all going to look like? Their skin probably have to be a marriage in this deal. The rumors on the street this week was John Ron was going. Like people were like popping off. There's a top ten. He's pissed at the rural tour. He doesn't want to play. Everybody thought it was wrong. I guess Ron came out and said fake news, not true. But there's more people are going to go, right? At some point, there's going to be some mergers, so maybe he's playing his cards. Maybe that's the deal. Maybe you talk shit the whole time. They were like, God, we're going to have to really pay this dude to kind of like, you know, come over to the dark side or negotiate or whatever. Who knows? I have no idea what's going to happen, but as a golf fan, I want the best guys playing plane in like mcelroy, what he thinks about the writer cop. I mean, I don't need to be rude, but it's totally irrelevant because the writer cup is run by the PGA of America, not the PGA Tour. And it's run by writer cup Europe, right? They have no say on who's on the American team. So if a couple of the guys make it, who cares? And as an American fan, I want the Americans to win. I'm not a freaking traitor, I want us to have the best team possible. So why wouldn't I want that? So then banning American guys hurts the American team, then banning Euro guys does it really hurt the Euro team at all. That's true. It's a good point. The thing that I really don't understand with all of this is that so you've got Rory you got Rory McIlroy in these guys talking against the live, okay? And you got guys that went to live. And you got PGA Tour players that went to live. And by the way, there are a couple guys on the PGA Tour that are playing this week by our boy, Jimmy walker, who's a friend of the pot, Jimmy walker, a great guy. And he's playing this week at the Leonard fournette championship out there in Napa Valley. And he's only playing because he was 54th in career money. 5 four. And four guys ahead of him went to live on the career money list. So he moved to number 50 and got a one time exemption to use on the PGA Tour, right? Because you get an exemption for top 50 career money, you get an exemption. Is that into everything or how does that happen? That's a full year. That is a full year. So you get a one year full year. If your top 50 career money, you get a one year full year career, you get a one year exemption. So like David toms is used one river. He was talking about that on FTP. Yeah. But there's a top 25 in the top 50. So Jimmy went from 54 to 50, so he had a one time exemption for an entire year and he's using it. This week, we're using it this year. He's playing the entire year, which that's helped a bunch of guys. Which I think is cool. Even though the guys that ended up leaving, obviously, are kicked out and banned forever, but whatever. Well, until they merge, wish they will merge, they will merge. This is ridiculous to not think that the lip tour and the PGA Tour will figure something out. They will. Norman and monaghan will run on the beach together hold hands and bathing suits and the world will be fine and a year probably. But until then, we've got to figure it out. And yeah, the top 50 career money list. That's kind of an interesting deal with all these guys going to live. It's opening more places up on tour for career money. Yeah, I mean, I love Jimmy walker like, I know your boys with Sam and he was on our parties and FTP guy and every time I look at his Instagram, he's like, here's this new grill. Here's the steak, reverse Sierra, like garlic butter, like I don't give a fuck. I wouldn't even know he was a golfer. I thought he was like the guy that does the sprinkles the salt. Yeah, I thought he was like the white southern Texas guy version of the guy that does that. But all of a sudden, I see pictures of him in 7 irons. He's like, here's my 7 iron swing and I was like, who gives a fuck? I was like, well, now I know why, because he's top 50 and he's practicing now. He's in an internment. He thought he was going to play nothing. Jimmy would Jimmy would Jimmy would probably agree. And I was like, well shit, now we gotta look at 700 swings instead of how to cook a delicious steak, but I'm here for, I'm here for regardless. I can't handle 7 iron and I can't cook a great steak, so. Yeah, there we are. So how many events did you play when you're in your year on the PGA Tour? Probably 30. You can play over 30 in one year. Did I

There Are Only Two Ways to Govern People...
"Two ways to govern people. You can break every type of government into two parts or two different buckets. I could say. You can govern people by using speech. The United States Constitution gives a preference on speech. You've got to make arguments. You've got to run for office. You got to convince people to give their power to you. You have to dialog with them. You could debate, you could have differences of opinion. Speech is what makes us human. We are the speaking beings. We are made in the image of God and God's spoke it into existence in the beginning was the word and the word was God and the word was with God. Speech is what makes us different than the creatures and the beasts of the wild. We could do more than just feel pleasure and pain. We could decipher and determine between right and wrong. What we call civil society, what we appreciate as western civilization is a preference is an elevation of the higher way of governance. Which is speech. The founding fathers knew this, the founding fathers lived under a regime of force. They studied every government that came before them. The Chinese empire, the British Empire, the Indus River valley empire, the Egyptians, the mesopotamians, the Byzantines. And they saw something in common that, throughout human history, whether it be the Greeks or whether it be the Dutch or whether it be the Romans, the few have a tendency to rule the many and the many end up not ruling the few.
The Deaths at the Southern Border Continue to Pile Up
"The debts at the southern border continue to pile up and I want to analyze an article by CNN on the topic because it's interesting on two counts. It's interesting for the information it conveys. But it's also interesting for the way that CNN spins it to assign blame very differently than where it belongs. So CNN, this is an article, a record number of migrants have died crossing the U.S. Mexico border. That's a fact, and it's of course a legitimate article, but notice how CNN spins the article to try to make it look like none of this is Biden's fault. Biden is barely mentioned in the entire article. So here we go, nearly 750 migrants have died at the southern border this fiscal year, a record that surpasses last year's total by more than 200 people. So we're looking at a lot of debts. In fact, I just saw in social media border control chief. He's talking about the number of drownings in the river. And he says that this is like one a day now. Whereas it used to be a few a year. Now, CNN goes on to say, quote, migrants face treacherous terrain while crossing the border including, including oppressive desert heat, dangerous waters and falling, so what I'm getting at here is here's CNN trying to explain why we have these high numbers. But they don't actually explain it for the simple reason that yeah, it's very hot at the southern border, but wasn't it hard last year? Wasn't hot the year before. Did you deal with dangerous water and oppressive heat? So that's clearly not the reason for the increase in deaths.

What Will This Feeble FBI Do Next? Lord Conrad Black Weighs In
"Conrad, it seems this is every week that there's another. Disgusting, sullying detail, first it was the FBI agents demanding the cameras be switched off, keeping the attorneys outside of the building, then it was rifling through Melania Trump's wardrobe, and now raiding a 16 year old young boy's bedroom Conrad? Yeah, I agree with you. I think it just gets worse and worse. And meanwhile, the excuse for doing it becomes a fainter and feebler. All the time. I mean, they danced around for a while with the Niagara river of leaks with which the Justice Department now routinely operates and then is like this. And it all completely illegal as you know, and completely unprofessional. And the sort of thing, by the way, that in Canada create Britain, you'd be disbarred for. I mean, the lawyers responsible in the DoJ and the FBI's lawyers who were involved in this. But they stopped for, but 6 hours on the idea of the espionage act and abandoned that. We had the nuclear secrets and nonsense. And in the desperation and their amateurism, the spread out these documents on the ride on the floor, but the rooms of Mar-a-Lago as if that's how the former president had treated these things and then scattered them around. Which turned out to be empty folders, empty folders. Yeah, I mean, the whole thing is just crumbling. Other than in the, in the resistless and bigoted imaginations of the anti Trump media.

"Would ask about me, but I would ask about them and try to push it away from finance as much as possible. So I like that idea. I also think I also will say this to a fun way to pivot. I really think if you say you're like, who cares? We all just look death in the face. Did you see such and such a movie on HBO Max? But making it fun, also what I wanted to say too is like, and I was thinking about this a lot. It is crazy how weight and food is almost seen as a neutral topic, particularly among women. Yeah. If something about something where I don't know you, but we could say something like, I'm being bad and like everyone knows what it means. You know, or I get into COVID-19 girl. And someone's just like, we got it. And so I think that's the thing. They think it's a neutral topic. I think they're like, I don't know this person. What can we all agree on? Food makes us fat. And then it's like a thing. And so I'm so terrible, right? You know? But it's such a shorthand. I realize that and I was like, yeah, because I was thinking I was like, I know very few women who just have a who have an uncomplicated relationship with food. I don't know. You know, everybody's like a lot of men. Well, I know what I'm saying in terms of what we talk about. I totally do, but that's what I kind of being specific because I think tons of men have the struggle, they just have not been conditioned to talk about it. Non fucking stuff. Yeah. So it's just so interesting that what it is is you think it's something that's on people's mind all the time because you have to eat to live. So there's no way to avoid it. And so then it's like, what am I doing? And then you're like, I'm having a canape. I'm terrible at. This office party or like, you know, it's sinful. I'm eating a snack wells. Exactly sinfully delicious. But it's like that feeling, right? So it's like, they're trying to do that and I think you have you just kind of make a joke or you're like, are you on a ventilator? Now that's fat. And then just like flip it. Again, to keep it light to make a joke with the ventilator. Just give it a ventilator. You know, whatever it is and then just like get out of that conversation a SAP and move on to somebody else 'cause again, it's all gonna be surface Y anyway, but I think it's like stick to whatever people are watching. And as you guys both said, like, ask questions, but it is like, I also think too, because I said this is someone else, we gotta be a little because Alison was also like, should I bother? What should I do? And I'm like, I don't think this is something that you should tell your hair out over. Like think about it. We all, I just was like, wait, I'm sorry, I'm awkward. I forgot how to modulate. Like I have a coworker and I'm like, I think I'm doing fun ribbing, but I think it's actually rude. And I was like a high sorry. I forgot how to modulate. I don't mean to sass you. Like I was like, I'm gonna call them an SB? I didn't call them an SB? Yeah, let's not go that far. I think that's a great point though, Naomi is like, because here's the thing. Allison's feeling that way, so are they? Like even if they're putting on this thing that like, oh, the pandemic didn't happen or whatever. It's like, they're still going through this thing. You know what I mean? And it's not to say like, oh, you have to bend over backwards for them. It's just a moment of like, oh, this person is struggling. You know? That stuff is coming out because they're feeling they're scared, you know? So it's just like even just that little moment of acknowledging, oh, this person in front of me is scared. Can really change that moment for you. You can find you don't even really need to do anything about it. At least that's been my experience when I'm just like, oh, why is it? Oh, right. Do you know what? Yep, I see you. You know what I was practicing at parties before the pandemic was getting out of conversations? Oh yeah. It's the two things Naomi told me, hey, do you know where the bathroom is? Sure. That's one class is a good one. I practice that. If you're at a function, you can be like, oh, I think I'm gonna go get another drink. Do you want something and they just never come back to the conversation? Well, the worst is what you're like, I'm gonna go get another drink and that person goes, I'll come with you and you're like, God, damn it. I don't want to try to do. But it's so funny 'cause even when we would go to parties where most people were comedians, and other creators, Andy somehow would always get stuck with the knot. Yeah, like the one boyfriend or something who was just like, yeah, so I like noodles. I studied statistics. I don't eat that much. I just enjoy looking at them. Man, I used to never be know how to get out of conversations, you know?.

"It's interesting that there was a time where how do I phrase this? Where I was sort of being influenced externally that there was something inherently bad about that relationship because I was a lesbian and he's a guy, you know, like I had to sort of, and I'm not blaming anybody, but anybody for that. It's just like, it's something that happened and it's interesting to look at it and go like, oh, I really like rejected that part of my life because it didn't fit someone else's or an idea of what life is supposed to be like or looking at that relationship as though it was somehow traumatic because I was like, gay, and it was wrong, you know what I mean? Did someone place that on you? Did someone specific thing that you are referring to that said, oh, because this happened. What the hell? Because I'm trying to figure out how but it was just like oh, you were gay and you're saying that other people told you it was wrong, but did they all know? Well, it's kind of just like this pervasive pervasive idea. Like looking backward at it that if you're a lesbian, then your relationships with men were bad. Or inherently traumatic to you. You know what I mean? And so I believed that a little bit because I was grasping at straws to try to understand myself. Why did Andrea dworkin type feminist philosophy type stuff? Do you know? I mean, I guess I know that name. I don't know. This is a bachelor organization. I don't think this is exactly what she said. But she's like all under the patriarchy all heterosexual sex is rape. And so it's a very, very much. It's a yeah, yeah, yeah. It's a very strict feminism. I don't think I don't think it's as don't worry, seminal right us and someone will. I'm sure we will get a right. But it's but Andy, that's right, is that it's a pervasive idea like that, which is a little strong. You know what I mean? And then it sort of reverberates out and it gets into culture people and then it becomes just like this idea that bounces around off of people and then it bounces to you and you go like, oh, I guess, you know? And then it just sort of like, I grabbed onto that and really in an attempt to understand myself really picked it up, you know? But what's nice now is that I can look back at that and just look at it. This is my experience of it. So I'm not telling anybody how they have to think or feel because that's the opposite of the whole thing that I'm even bringing up is that I can look back at that relationship now and go, oh, that was a queer relationship. Because I am a queer person. And so it doesn't, all the very specific sort of externalized labels putting onto something is a lot less important to me than the inherent identity inside of it. You know? And so when I see you guys are a heterosexual presenting couple, right? Pairing. But it's not within my needs or I don't need to be like, oh, they're straight. Because I don't know, you know what I mean? If I saw you on the street, yes, yes, no. I don't know what Andy's situation is. I don't know what Naomi's situation is. I don't know what your situation is. And a lot of old movement that I was taking in was like, they're straight. They're not getting and it's like, what if actually the opposite is true, which is that when I see you guys, I don't know. And it's a lot less important and I see you in receive you as people and loving people and possibility. And what if I see you as queer and it's just my experience that isn't said out loud isn't about anything other than I'm just opening it up. You know what I mean? So anyway, you guys asked me about dating. But I can't what you're saying. It's been a long pandemic with a lot of thinking. No, I get what you're saying. I used to teach as feminist philosophy course. And the thrust of the course was, what do the labels get us? What do labels get us? Is there a utility or is there not? And if there isn't a utility to them, then what if we don't need them? What if we doesn't need them in certain contexts? My personal thought is that their only needed if you don't really feel like engaging in the world. Because then you can just easily if you're like, I just want to look, I just want to get home and watch everybody loves Raymond. All right, I don't want to have to deal with the world in its nuances. So I'm just going to come up with these labels and throw them on people. Right. And then I can just deal with them. All right, I know what your deal is without having to talk to you. Exactly. Yeah, which is kind of human nature, right? To just compartmentalize so we can understand the world quickly as soon as possible. And to me, it's much identity is way more important or way more interesting. I'll put it that way. Non hierarchical. I'll put it interesting. Then labeling, which is an externalized thing where I'm putting something on you, as opposed to identity is something that presents itself that's revealed that is understood that is experience. You know, like that's just a different and it comes from within and you actually can't label identity. You know, you can come up with all these things and we do, and they can be important in the world, especially for marginalized people to understand ourselves and have a communication around it. But when it becomes about the label as opposed to the identity, that's where I feel that we begin to lose our way with this stuff. And we start to it starts to replicate the patriarchal capitalist heterocentric society that we're trying to break down with these things. You know, it starts to fold back into that. And it's detrimental. Because when I think about it, I was thinking about how I don't think of people as sexual objects, meaning you know how like when somebody people are pre-op. Sorry, sorry. Well, for instance, when people look at queer relationships versus, right? Or homosexual relationships where they're like, who is the man? This idea of thinking about what you're saying is who is penetrating who and it's kind of like that never crosses my mind when I engage with a human. And so but now I know. Is that partially because I identify a sex negative? Meaning is the way I see myself then coloring the way when I look outward, that's not what I'm picking up in someone else, or is it just like my lack of preoccupation preoccupation with that? I feel like I'm a vibe person and that doesn't mean that whoo whoo. I mean, literally like, when I take somebody in the first thing I take in is like the what they're emanating energy wise and be like, oh yeah, I'm into this I'm into this vibe. And then I can get the details, but even the details don't really revive it. We're fine. You know, but it's just interesting because but I also wonder how much of that is informed, you know, like, again, why what is your, what are you internally kind of like, what is your marker? Personally, right? And what do you care about? 'cause I do feel like people who think about genitalia. It's very strange to me. It's a look at a person and think about their body in that way. It's really weird. I don't know. I don't know. To me, I mean, it's very like in the sort of capitalist thing of like everything is an object and everything is to be owned. I need to know what that is. You know, in this very weird way. But I think you're right now, it's like, where is your center? If your center is in objectification and everything is everything is an object to me, you know? But I would argue if everything's an object to you, you're probably an object to you too, you know? And if you're more centered in your vibe, yeah, of course, that's what you're going to attract, you know? And look for. And what's going to come towards you, you know? Well, hopefully. I agree. I think I realized that was funny because I'm always talking about how you know I like people who are calm.

"Living room window. One day, one of my neighbor's packages was delivered to my porch. So I knocked on our door to give her her package. She asked if I could hear her working late at night. I said no. She asked if I could hear her watching a movie and maintained uncomfortable eye contact. Unbeknownst to us, we were the noisy sex couple. I now use a white noise machine by the window and turn on the TV. My neighbor hasn't had to mention hearing us anymore. Maybe the journalists can use a white noise machine, hope that helps.

"If you took a walk a really long walk from baton rouge to omaha. It's safe to say would definitely take more than sixty minutes in the real world. You'd have to be an enormous giant to do that but at the mississippi river basin model. Everyone's giant that's because the model squeezes sixteen states the parts of those states that are all connected to the mississippi river into a couple hundred acres of space to reference. That's about the size of one hundred fifty football fields there. Ever based model is a physical model Physical hydraulic model of the mississippi river basin. This is sarah mcewen and the reason she knows so much about this model is because she's trying to save it. It doesn't go to the headwaters but it is kind of stops at key points along the tributaries that The mississippi river main line would have had backwater impacts. So you have like tulsa omaha nashville. These are all kind of key points that are the upstream reaches and then you have those rivers that flow down until they converge join the mississippi. And then you have the mississippi all the way down to baton rouge about half a century ago. The city of jackson mississippi took it over from the us army corps of engineers but by nineteen ninety-three. It was completely shut down with no vision for its future. It was in the middle of a park. Say you have soccer field. Do you have go kart track. You have mountain biking trails but to my knowledge besides kind of mowing it initially to keep the trees and education contained. That was really all that was diet.

"Discoveries as we celebrate curiosity and explore interesting facts about history science and more in five minutes or less. Hi i'm luke and welcomed to the quiz against bob guest. Today is the last friday in july. So far this month we have explored rivers in south america africa asia and north america. Today we wrap up our river. Explorations with a european river the danube. The danube is europe's second longest river measuring one thousand. Seven hundred seventy seven miles long. It flows through ten countries starting in the black forest mountains of germany. The river travels through austria slovakia hungary croatia syria bulgaria romania moldova and ukraine before emptying into the black sea. The danube has over three hundred tributaries with thirty of them being navigable. Which means that you can take a boat on them. Many important european cities line its banks including budapest hungary and vienna austria. The danube was critical. In settlement of south eastern and central europe. Castles and fortresses can still be seen along the river. It was the way that people traded their goods and services with nearby countries it continues to be important to the economies of the countries it flows through freight is still transported up and down the river. Additionally hydro electric power is generated by the danube most notably near yugoslavia and romania at the iron gate power station after world war. Two canals were constructed to aid in the navigation of the river including the danube black sea canal. This canal connects romania to the black sea making trade more efficient many industries and residential areas rely on the river for water supply and irrigation like many other rivers. Pollution is an issue. This endangers wildlife in makes the water unusable for people. Greek sailors traveled up the danube in the seventh century. Bc e. later. The danube was the northern boundary of the roman empire with roman soldiers patrolling it and establishing strongholds on its bank. The river continued to play a vital role in history as more castles and fortresses were built during the middle ages as the ottoman empire spread. The turks used these fortresses for defense as time passed trade became the reason for the river. Traffic the treaty of paris signed in eighteen. Fifty six made the river an international waterway with the formation of the international danube commission in nineteen power to control. The river was settled. The commission had its own flag levy taxes and insured that navigational equipment was kept up world war two slowed river traffic with fighting and it did not resume until nineteen forty eight. Many different types of plants and animals live in and around the danube over one hundred species of fish swim in its waters sturgeons which can reach lengths of six meters and the danube salmon were once plentiful but are now endangered because of pollution and overfishing in addition to sturgeon and salmon many carpet catfish can be found in the danube birds. Like the danube kingfisher are plentiful in the forests along the riverbank as their name indicates these brightly colored birds fish the danube for their dinner. By swooping down over the water to catch their prey pygmy. Cormorants are another bird that makes its home near the danube. It likes to build its nest in the reads and sticks that surround the river. The danube clouded yellow butterfly can be found along the banks in may july and august. Like the fish. This species is in danger of becoming extinct european pond. Turtles make their nests along the danube. These freshwater turtles can live over one hundred years. They also are able to travel far away from the water. Some of these turtles have been seen over three hundred miles from the banks today. Many places along the danube are popular with tourists. The home of anne frank is among the many places museums and memorials. That people want to see river cruises make their way along the river allowing those on board to see the magnificent architecture from long ago the river has also played a part in several books movies and songs a lullaby called on the beautiful. Blue danube is one of the most famous. I hope you enjoyed exploring some of earth's most significant rivers with me this month. Thanks for tuning into the inquisitors.

"Andreas didn't fixate on that last till his grandpa told lots of stories like this and on the coast of peru in lima where unrest grew up. Most people talked about the amazon in the same way as this wild untamed landscape sort of separate from the rest of peru even though it represents sixty percent of peru's national territory. Roughly it was always sort of like you know the place to go conquer in fact there's a very famous song it's called. This is my land. This is my peru meteorite that he'd been talks about the coast and then the bread basket that is the arcor. Andy's wonderful and then behind the mountains just landscape that needs to be conquered and it's it's part of that narrative that narrative of course was wrong because the people who have been living in the peruvian amazon for thousands of years. No where the dangerous animals live which plants are poisonous and which ones are healing and for centuries. They have known about the boiling river around two thousand ten on the day started work on his. Phd in geothermal energy specifically he and some of his colleagues were mapping geothermal hot spots in peru places were vents opened up in the earth's crust. And let out heat from the core. He thought backed his grandfather's story. How can kista doors were thwarted in their quest for gold by boiling river and he started to wonder. What if that wasn't just a story for two years andres asked pretty much everyone. He met if they had seen a boiling river.

"Hi i'm luke and welcome to the increase. its podcast. today is the fourth friday in july. So we're going to find out about another river to date. We have explored rivers in faraway lands. But today we're going to learn about a river that is in the united states the mighty mississippi river the mississippi is one of the longest rivers globally and the second longest river in north america. In fact the word. Mississippi is the native american word for big river flowing through minnesota wisconsin iowa illinois missouri. Kentucky tennessee arkansas mississippi and louisiana. The river covers two thousand. Three hundred fifty miles. It starts at lake tasca in minnesota and empties into the gulf of mexico off the shores of louisiana. It takes water two to three months to travel from lake. I tasca to the gulf of mexico. Interestingly a tributary or a branch of the mississippi that missouri river is longer than the mississippi by about one hundred miles at the most narrow point the mississippi river is only between twenty and thirty feet across. The width is greatest near benham minnesota spanning eleven miles however. Most of the river tends to be around two miles wide. The mississippi river has played a vital role in the history of the united states. I flat boats in barges loaded with many different commodities floated on the river foods like flour pork and corn were whiskey was also traded along the shores of the river since the river is so long a trip down and back could take as long as nine months with the invention of the steam engine. Steamships traveled up and down the river carrying goods back and forth between the port cities. The very first steamship to set sail on the mississippi was in eighteen eleven. It was named the new orleans. These steamships continued to be common on the river until the transcontinental railroads. Completion may travel overland. Easier traffic on the river picked up again at the start of world war one as the government used it to ferry goods today. It is among the busiest of commercial waterways. Oil chemicals coal steel and iron can now be found traveling along. the mississippi. Booster rockets are often ferried on the river. Since their bulk is unsuitable for other means of transport the river serves the people along its path in other ways as well many cities and towns all up and down the mississippi depend on the water provides. It is estimated that almost fifteen million people get their water from this river. The mississippi river also played a significant role in mark. Twain's books huckleberry finn tom sawyer and life on the mississippi other literary works are also said along the mississippi as are many folksongs in addition to the rivers importance to people the mississippi is essential to wildlife as well. There are at least two hundred sixty different kinds of fish swimming in the rivers freshwater. This represents about twenty five percent of all the kinds of fish. in america. there are ten different species of catfish that call the river home. Catfish can reach lengths of more than thirty inches and can weigh up to one hundred pounds. The heavily oxygenated waters are ideal for these fish. Walleye are also plentiful in the upper parts of the mississippi and several varieties of bass can be found in both. The upper and middle regions fisher. Not the only animals that populate the mississippi river area because the river has many diverse habitats birds are plentiful many use the river as a path for migration with about half of all migratory birds in the country using the river route. Canadian geese ducks and swan. All follow the river's path as they make their way to the warmer climates of latin america. Bald eagles can be seen flying over the river and making their nests along the banks other birds frequently spotted are the great blue heron the ivory billed woodpecker and the white pelican. The lower mississippi is home to many reptiles shellfish and amphibians commercial fisherman filled their nets with shrimp blue crab crayfish and other seafood in the river. Delta the american alligator the mississippi diamondback terrapin snakes turtles and frogs can all be found in and around the mighty mississippi.

I mean this is the information age. You can get a great book a great essay. A great idea anywhere you know. None of us can do that. Better than the internet right There is no great thought leader. Who can out think the internet like. We have data what all nba gets right. Is it puts you in a context where you're part of a community that says yeah. Yeah that's good.

When are you gonna face those fears. I'm not gonna let you gotta show up. That's the hardest part and it sounds simple. It sounds very commonsensical.

"Rivers about the fact that it might be okay for the storm drain to wash away. Some of the residue from your yard or your orange trees but it's not okay for people to start dumping sewage into the river simply because it's more convenient particularly if it's going to make people sick kill all the oysters and degrade the quality of life for everyone but what happens if we think about rivers a little bit more metaphorically what if we think about the river of time unlike the hudson river the river of time generally only goes in one direction unless you ask h. g. wells this river of time when it starts here and goes forward is something that affects all of us as we think about standards in our community so for example most communities have figured out that an educated populace that when you spend the time and money to educate six year olds or nine year olds teaching them to read and write to understand science and other things they will grow up down the river of time to become better contributors to the culture that all of us benefit when kids are educated so on behalf of the kids who don't have a say in it. The community speaks up and says all kids have to be educated and on behalf of the parents the community says and we're gonna pay for it and hence public school and i'm hoping that most of the people who are listening to this agree with me that levying attacks on all of us so that kids can be educated. Seems like a really sensible idea but once we start going down that road one of the questions is is it okay for those kids to be opted out of the public school that we're all paying for and go to a private school instead and then if they're going to a private school should the tax payer money that would have been going for them to go to public school the allocated for them to go to private school and then what happens if the private school they go to doesn't teach them things of use. What if after eight or ten or twelve years in this facility. They don't know how to read and write. What if instead of teaching them science as we understand it in a way. They're teaching them things that are closer to mythology. That aren't practical or useful and that might even be divisive. How do we decide to fill the river of time and that leads to beginning to understand things about capitalism liberty and freedom. Many of you have heard me say before that the purpose of culture is not to enable capitalism the purpose of capitalism is to enable culture in other words capitalism is the special case friend. Told me about the difference between a navy pilot and an air force pilot in the united states air force started. They were the first people with airplanes and there are volumes and volumes and volumes of rules and regulations and the rule for air force pilots in follow all the rules in the books navy pilots on the other hand have just a few manuals and the rule for navy pilot is. If it's not in the book you can figure out what to do. So one is about avoiding getting in trouble and the other one is about finding your own way forward and when we think about the difference between those two when we think about capitalism one way to think about it is the default is everybody can do anything. They want with liberty and freedom to create the most value for themselves selfishness first and then culture community. They have to come up with the special exceptions. That aren't allowed the alternative. The one that has been around for tens of thousands of years is that culture says these are our standards. These are the things that are sacrosanct and in any spaces that aren't carved out. You can do anything that you want. Because that enables the market economy that enriches so many of us and that is part of the challenge that we're facing in our culture today. Which is it is tempting to say that. I am responsible for everything that i do. Leave me alone. But the rivers rivers of time the rivers of connection the rivers of culture and the rivers of rivers are now far more intertwined than they have ever been before and so when we put an idea into a kid's head it will pay dividends or costs for generations to come. Here's a simple example. Is it okay for private industry to say. We are going to discriminate against people like women. Black people people of color indigenous peoples people who have traditionally been discriminated against. We are not going to hire them and we were not going to promote them. Because we don't have to well over the last few generations. I think we have seen that toxic longterm implications of this and we have created this idea of the protected class of people where we say. Yeah you can say. I'm not going to hire left-handed people and you can say i'm not going to allow people who come to my office to wear earrings but no you can't persist in maintaining a caste system. One that costs everyone an enormous amount in terms of justice and civility and potential. No you can't do that but we keep coming back to these edged cases edge cases about who you can serve in who you can't serve edge cases about what the long term and short term implications of using this chemical or having that policy. Should we treat big companies monopolies different than we treat little ones. Is it okay for apple to say. We're not going to allow certain kinds of businesses to be in the app store. Because if they do that then defacto they are keeping lots of people from seeing those apps on the other hand if it is completely wide open then how do we hold people responsible for creating things perhaps anonymously that are toxic to the culture in the world around us and i don't know the purpose of this passes into tell you the answer but it's the more clearly about the questions. Which river are we dumping stuff in. What are the repercussions generations from. Now what will people say if eli on. Musk builds a supersonic airplane. Is it okay for him to fly it wherever he wants. Regardless of how much carbon it dumps into the air is it okay for him to take off with a sonic boom that you hear every night when you're trying to sleep. Is it okay if that sonic boom breaks the windows of your house and you have to pay money to replace them. All of these. Things are on a spectrum and there's no doubt in my mind that two or three generations from now people are gonna look at the carbon we left behind and they're going to say what were you thinking and they're going to pay attention to just how deep inequity was both in terms of income distribution but mostly in terms of opportunity because opprtunity creates new frontiers. It creates connection it creates value and every time we do what capitalism pushes us to do. Which is the short-term expedient convenient thing we might very well be shutting the door on the long-term resilient powerful bit of possibility instead so. I don't know the answer but my hunch is that the more we think about it in the more we engage with the better. We're going to get thanks for listening. We'll see you next time. We'll be back in a second with some questions from previous episodes but first here's a message from our sponsor who when is it time to love. What is it time to learn a new way to see the world to connect with others to lead to engage in possibility.

Hi hi this is. Roberta perry my christian is and that completes my question as you know. I love to hear from you if you got a question about this or any previous episode. I hope you visit akimbo. Dot linked at daycare. I m b o dot l. i. n. k. And click the appropriate button. Three interesting questions this week here. We go hi. Seth charles quarter in montreal. Canada miss people. Thanks for your work listening to your recent rant on education. I find myself wondering how to pull the lever of motivation. While i am a self sturdier and i've learned things from photoshop to interesting financial concepts i've also offered training back in the day. I offered powerpoint training to a whole group of people. And i offered it for free. No one took me up three months later. I offered the same training in charge. A very nominal amount thirty five people showed up part of what i did was offer them half of their money back if they actually showed up. So where do you see the bonus and lever of paying for what you're receiving and is one of the weaknesses of our current. Give it away or the current build it and offer. The free service is one of those weaknesses that money for better for worse remains a powerful internal drive for which people perceive the value and that without a lack with a lack of perceived value people will not engage in the education training learning that. They need to thank you for this charles. The thing is that money is two things not one. It is a transfer of value. It is a way of paying our bills but the other thing it is is a story we tell ourselves a story about the things that we are buying whether were business. Spending twenty million dollars on consultants or at investor deciding that a stock is undervalued. Or somebody taking a course on powerpoint which is free or not free. We tell ourselves a story about guarantees. We tell ourselves a story about getting a refund. Getting a kickback. All of these things are separate from the fact that money is what we use to pay our bills so when you showed up to your friends and colleagues and said i'm gonna offer this course for free when they probably heard his. You're viewing it as either a hobby or a gift and they were viewing it as something. They probably weren't going to take seriously. They decided their time was worth more than what you or they were going to put into the course but when you showed up and said this course costs money you were making a promise. And they looked at the money and they looked at you and they said well charles's the sort of person who would take this seriously if we were paying. And so if i'm gonna shop up i need to take seriously and you can see all the ripples that are caused by this we know that you can take almost all the courses at mit for free or you can pay thirty forty thousand dollars a year to take them in person. Why is it that people who take them for free her so much less likely to finish them. Part of the reason is you. Don't get a degree that piece of paper that magically confers some sort of value but a big reason is because they didn't pay for it so as we enter more and more of a digital age we need to think about not what the marginal cost of delivering something is. It costs nothing for one more person to listen to this podcast so pricing it. That way makes no sense but instead what is the story. What is the story of money. were telling. And how will it change. The outcomes that we seek. I started under here from brazil. I liked her rant about merchants and shopkeepers and one of the things that came to my mind when you raise the status of merchants. Is that english. Merchants in now are were thief's and they stole precious materials and gold from an using slavery as determing forests around the world and of course at a time the english culture might not perceive them as thieves rather explorers or merchants are doing business as usual but now no different have a different perception about what it means and when we come to the recent times i guess many companies might have.

"Very jeers directly nation bureau freeloaders with so wiped out the good lord work in six short years. They never saw the old lincoln. You're damned it. On the greatly era of dam building. There was no greater name than floyd dominy under his leadership. Three hundred dams jumped off the drawing boards and into the canyons. He wishes there were more. When i was made commissioner effective may one thousand nine hundred fifty nine. Everybody thought that Managing water was a was a desirable thing and it was in the public interest and we had no naysayers in those days. We didn't have lint pickers behind every bush. For example glen canyon dam was authorized in april of nineteen fifty six and we actually started construction within six months. Why today we'd have spent six months trying to find out where to put toilet for the rock. Scaler what they had designed was to place a couple of dams in dinosaur area and one down in glen canyon and a couple down in grand canyon the first was going to build up and dinosaur now was one of. The sierra club came out and they've brower fought very hard against that they succeeded. They won that battle a completely forgotten about saving the glen canyon. Mr david brower you. You have greater regretting. Your life and glen. Canyon dam Yeah just becomes. -secutive director of the sierra club. And that was my top priority. Get glen canyon dam build and save dinosaur national monument until i learned was glen canyon. I was ready to give glen canyon away. Because i didn't know it was there. The sierra club didn't we were telling them about it. All of us running the rivers this big mistake. We had a little organization going friends glen canyon posing this damn. That's what abby. And i talked about around the campfire ranting and raving against the damn the beginning of his monkey wrench gang. Ed abbey and ken slight were real. Good friends abby wrote the monkey wrench gang which features a group of people who put sand and sugar in gas tanks of bulldozers. They tear down power lines to get rid of glen canyon dam. One of the characters was called seldom seen smith that was modeled after ken. Slight much of my writing as you may know for the sake of environmentalism have also taken part in a few demonstrations and engaged in illegal activities here and there when we call monkey wrench in people get under the concern over trivial things like tossing beer cans in a ditch along highway while remaining unaware of the really truly vast destruction that a second place hope for a spin clearcut when the whole west whole planet has been destroyed by overpopulation over. Industrialization gets foolish to get excited about things like beer cans along highway beer cans Much more beautiful than highways in my view the highways that are ugly. Not the beer cans nine knew that the water going to come up when it did. I wasn't ready for when you actually see that water. Come up each by inch covering all the beautiful things you ever wanted to see. The indian ruins the an associate bill came up there and tumbled them over covered over the pictographs petroglyphs.

"d. river" Discussed on Secular Buddhism
"So the mountains and rivers, Sutra this is a teaching that was written by Duggan Dougan was he lived in Japan and the twelve hundred. He's the founder of the Soto Zen School of Buddhism is the largest of the three major forms of Zen Buddhism, and he founded a monastery in the mountains. And for Togan, the practice of sitting meditation and the experience of Enlightenment were essentially one in the same so knowing. Path that leads to enlightenment is enlightenment is a very simple in a very profound teaching for me, and in the mountains and rivers, Sutra teaching after a long teaching about mountains and about water, <hes> Duggan teaches that in the end, mountains are just mountains and water water are just waters, but I think in that in that statement, it's very simple and very profound, and I wanted to share some of my thoughts about this, so there's a book. <hes> called pointing at the Moon and the author j Garfield and Graham Priest. And in chapter, six of the book at opens up with the statement that goes like this says before I studied Zen mountains were mountains and water was water after studying zen for some time, mountains were no longer mountains and water was no longer water, but now after studying zen longer mountains are mountains and water has just water. And this is an expression that has stuck with me. Since I heard it <hes> several years ago and fact, I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this in the podcast before, but the expression or the concept of the idea that mountains mountains water is water, and then mountains aren't just mountains and waters, not just water, and then after even more time mountains, argest mountains and water water is an expression that that really resonates in the and I WANNA share a couple of reasons why? <hes> doggone taught that. When we know something intimately is ceases to exist, and so do we. And he alludes to a concept in this <hes> in the Sutra that really. Speaks to me, he says in the in the teaching. He says waters freedom depends only on water. Now the first time I heard that I thought well. What does that mean waters? Freedom depends only on water <hes> well. If we think about this, the are what we perceive. Always depends on us as the as the one doing the perceiving. <hes> and this is this is something that echoes in a lot of Buddhist teachings is that? What I perceive has more to do with how I perceive than what the thing is that I'm perceiving now water again as the example when we perceive water, it gets attached to a story that has meaning for example, a farmer praying for rain. <hes> proceeds water once it starts to rain and might think <hes> okay. I'm being blessed I needed this rain and meanwhile another farmer. WHO's trying to dry out there? Hey might be praying for the rain to stop or for their Tanabe rain, and when he perceives, the water sees the rain may be thinking Oh <hes> I'm you know I'm I'm being cursed or <hes>? I am trying to think of the word. That's the equivalent of curse, but not quite that strong. Maybe I'm being. I did something wrong and that's why it's raining on me. Or again a storm or <hes> I guess in any anything that we perceive can be or will be interpreted through the lens of us as the one doing the perceiving so in this expression that waters freedom depends only on water to me is to say that water is free to just be what it is when when it allows itself to just be what it is, it depends only on itself, so this expression is quite profound to me when I think of it in the in the context of myself, my freedom depends only on myself now that's a concept and a teaching that's certainly echoed and a lot of Buddhist teachings, or to say your freedom depends only on you. So for me, this is this is a very powerful thing. I think perhaps the mountains and rivers. Sutra is not about mountains and rivers at all, but perhaps the mountains and rivers themselves are a teaching.
