A highlight from BCB134_ANDY SCHOONOVER: Fiscal & Physical Health
"Which might as well be Darth Vader, right? Like we're screwing Darth Vader, right? Like nobody cares if Darth Vader gets screwed, right? And what we're trying to say is like, no, no, no, you're screwing me, a human being who has to ultimately pay for this. This is the Blue Collar Bitcoin Podcast, a show where average Joe firefighters explore the most important monetary technology of the 21st century. We talk Bitcoin, we talk finance, and we talk shit. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome in. Glad you're here for another week on Blue Collar Bitcoin. This time around, Josh and myself, Dan, got the pleasure of spending an hour with Andy Schoonover. After attending Stanford Business School, Andy has built an impressive entrepreneurial and business resume. Since 2021, he's been the founder and CEO of CrowdHealth, a company looking to completely redefine the meaning of healthcare in today's society. Andy also hosts a great show called the Sovereign Health Podcast, and he's a dead serious Bitcoiner. He recorded this episode from the Bitcoin Commons in Austin, Texas, for Pete's sake. You'll be able to tell right away Andy was practically born with a microphone in front of his face, and this chat was substantive. We cover the importance of creating a work -life balance, why the medical -industrial complex is so opaque and so expensive, and what CrowdHealth is doing to fix it, metabolic health, butt -naked ice baths, and much more. We think that you'll agree after listening to Andy that what CrowdHealth is pioneering is truly badass. If you have healthcare needs, and you want to cut your costs and support human beings rather than large insurance companies, CrowdHealth is more than worth a peek. You can come and go as you please, month to month, no stupid commitments, no confusing bullshit. And if you so choose, you can use code BLUE for a significant discount on your first six months. Lastly, as price starts heading north, I'm going to take time to remind all of you folks to self -custody your freaking Bitcoin. If you don't hold the private keys, you hold a Bitcoin IOU, not the real thing. Someone else is your Bitcoin Dom. Assuming you're not a sub, take custody yourself folks, or at the very least start learning how this process works. Our go -to solution for storing our Bitcoin private keys is the Cold Card. It's extremely secure, easy to use, and Bitcoin only. We've used these bad boys for years. They simply work. You can use code BCB, that's BCB, for a delectable discount on Cold Card, and click the CoinKite link down in our notes to see discounts on a variety of other CoinKite products, including the BlockLocks. Josh, Andy, Schoonover, Daniel, is here. In usual fashion, we just got a lot of good stuff out of the way before we click record, but we'll have to leave that up to the audience's imagination, right, Andy? We got some saucy stuff on the Sovereign Health podcast just before we click record that we can't disseminate to the world, unfortunately, now. We are. It's locked in. We're going to have to tread lightly in this one too, Andy, because we're going to be talking, I'm sure, quite a bit about being paramedics, about our day job. We actually had an incident in our last episode where this happened a couple of times on this show where we get a little too specific and we're like, wait, could that really fuck us down the road if a chief listened to that? We've got to basically go, this happened to someone we know at a neighboring department years ago, whatever story that we're about to just throw out there. Didn't happen with us. It happened with somebody else far, far away. Twenty years ago, we knew a guy that worked somewhere else that once had a patient where this went down. Friend of a friend. Exactly. Yeah. Well, good to hang out with you guys. It's been about, what, about a year since we last hung out. So appreciate y 'all having me on. I think about exactly. Now is the time. You know, everybody's thinking about healthcare for next year. So I appreciate y 'all having me on this time of year. As always, last year was super fun. So I'm sure we will not disappoint this time around. No, we won't. Yeah. We just finished open enrollment at the department. It's like herding cattle too. Like the, you know, they send out the initial email from HR, you get half of the firemen that do it. Another week goes by. You've got stragglers. You got to kind of get the shepherd's crook around their neck, pull them in the pen. It's like when you do a sexual harassment training, you know, nobody wants to do it. Like who wants to sit there and they want to click through, like, don't touch anyone on the penis. Don't look at anyone's ass, obviously like, yes, yes, I know I'll take the bullshit quiz. I'll get 75 % on it and I'll move on with my day. You guys went that direction. I was thinking more like doing taxes every year. Like it's one of those things like you hate doing, you know, we're actually going to put up a post either today or tomorrow on Twitter around, like do this once and never have to worry about it again. Cause we don't have open enrollments at crowd help. Like it's month to month. If you want to quit next month, if you want to quit in four years, you can quit in four years. Our average person's, you know, with us for two and a half or three years or something like that. So, um, you know, it takes five minutes to sign up. You never have to worry about it again. How beautiful is that? That's worth its weight in gold. Sure is. Yeah. I heard you when you were on with breed love, one of my main takeaways that everyone listening is thinking is why is the system and, and even just your plan, take it. If you've had a health insurance plan, an HMO, a PPO, whatever it is, it is one of the most confusing things anyone ever comes across. I consider myself squared away on so many fronts can, can read through these documents, generally understand them when it comes to healthcare.
A highlight from News Block: Did SBF Try to Pay Trump Billions Not To Run? U.S. Debt Hits $33 Trillion, Chase UK Banning Crypto, Honda Now Accepts Bitcoin
"Welcome to the CoinStories news block. I'm Natalie Brunell, and in the span of just 10 minutes, roughly the same time it takes to mine a new Bitcoin block, I'll provide you with concise, insightful updates on Bitcoin and the global financial landscape so you're well informed on the week's top stories. Everything you need to know in one place, in one block. Let's go. Bitcoin has been on the move this week, breaking out above its 200 -day moving average and climbing back above $28 ,000 a coin for the first time since mid -August. Despite its volatility, Bitcoin is now up 68 % on the year as it enters October. And October, by the way, has garnered the nickname, Uptober. It has typically been one of Bitcoin's best performing months. It's gone up an average of 22 % in October over the last 10 years. Some believe Bitcoin's recent price performance is related to increased awareness about the unsustainable nature of the US debt. Our national debt recently hit a concerning milestone when it crossed $33 trillion for the first time in history. According to the Treasury Department, this is a result of fiscal spending increasing nearly 50 % from 2019 to 2021. In other words, government officials went on a spending binge the last couple of years. And given the rise in interest rates, the US government is now spending more to pay interest on our $33 trillion in debt than it does on national defense. Billionaire hedge fund manager Ray Dalio, who has written extensively on how we are about to reach the end of the long -term debt cycle, is warning that we might be close to a deleveraging event. The long -term debt cycle refers to the idea that over long time periods, typically 50 to 75 years, economies accumulate larger and larger amounts of debt with each short -term business cycle. This all culminates in a peak where the debt becomes unsustainable and sparks a large deleveraging period marked by reduced spending, falling asset prices, slower economic growth and debt reduction. In a recent interview, Dalio was quite blunt. We're going to have a debt crisis in this country soon. How fast it transpires, I think is going to be a function of that supply demand issue. And so I'm watching that very closely. The reality of the debt problem was all too apparent in a recent report from the Institute of International Finance that showed that global government debt has hit a record $307 trillion, the title of the report, In Search of Sustainability. Now, Bitcoiners have been sounding the alarm about the debt problem for many years, but now the narrative appears to be going mainstream. Bloomberg published a short documentary titled America's Looming Debt Spiral. So the media seems to be waking up to the fact that this debt is unpayable. The solutions, well, they can choose to default, which would be catastrophic and politically untenable, or they can choose to try to print their way out, which would devalue the dollar even more. Scarce assets like Bitcoin will ultimately be the beneficiaries as the debt spiral continues and investors are finally starting to recognize Bitcoin as an asset to protect themselves from the debt doom loop. All right, shifting gears, much of the focus this week will be on FTX and its founder Sam Bankman -Fried, whose criminal trial is set to begin this week. SPF faces seven counts of fraud and conspiracy related to the collapse of FTX. If found guilty on all charges, SPF could spend the rest of his life behind bars. FTX customers, investors, and employees will all be testifying in the trial against the infamous former poster child for crypto. In a 60 Minutes interview Sunday, author Michael Lewis, who's famous for The Ranging Interview about SPF and the book he's releasing about his rise and fall titled Going Infinite. Lewis had spent more than six months traveling with and interviewing SPF in the lead up to FTX's collapse. A letter from a talent agent from Creative Artists Agency said that Lewis likened SPF to the quote, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader of crypto. Clips from that interview went viral on social media, including one in which Lewis says SPF was trying to pay former President Donald Trump billions of dollars not to run again in 2024. He also said there is an SPF shaped hole in the universe that now needs filling and that FTX was quote, a great real business. Overwhelming consensus on Bitcoin X, Twitter was Michael Lewis was casting FTX and SPF in a favorable light, despite operating one of the largest frauds in financial history. And heading into the trial, the timing and tone of this interview raised some eyebrows given that Lewis said the book was a quote, letter to the jury, which appears to suggest the jury should read the book potentially influencing the outcome of the court case. The trial will be dominating headlines for the coming months as the industry and millions of victims follow it closely to see what happens. FTX is still a topic of discussion in Washington DC, where the company came up in a hearing in front of the House Financial Services Committee. That's where SEC Chairman Gary Gensler was grilled for more than five hours on SEC oversight. Much of the conversation revolved around its enforcement actions toward the broader crypto industry. Democratic Senator Maxine Waters, who strangely called Bitcoin, Bitcoin during the hearing, asked Gary Gensler about ways he would protect investors from frauds like FTX and Terra Luna. Now I have to mention this was the same senator who met with SPF on multiple occasions prior to FTX collapse and even commended SPF for his candidness and willingness to talk to the public after the company went bust. Gensler and the SEC have also come under heavy criticism from Congress for meeting with FTX behind closed doors and also for the lack of clarity around the regulatory approach to the crypto industry. One notable exchange during the hearing was when Gary Gensler was asked directly by Republican Congressman Patrick McHenry whether or not he considered Bitcoin a security. This was Gensler's response. Well I think the staff of the SEC have also ended prior to the hearing. I'm just asking you this question and this is not a gotcha. I thought there's going to be an easy softball into harder questions. Do you think Bitcoin is a security? No, I think I've said this in the past that I think that it doesn't mean a Howey test. I'm asking to answer my question now. This is not supposed to be hard. I know I said it does not meet the Howey test which is the law of the land about being an investment contract. So it doesn't meet it's a commodity. Is that fair? I would say it's not a security and then the test is otherwise for other laws. Many of the questions directed at Gensler were around the SEC continuing to reject multiple spot Bitcoin ETF applications. Despite the congressional pressure for an ETF approval, the SEC continues to delay them. In the last week the Commission delayed its decision on several prominent ETF applications including ones from BlackRock, Bitwise, ARK Invest and Invesco. These delays came earlier than many expected and the SEC noted that the announcement was expedited due to the risk of a government shutdown that was narrowly avoided over the weekend. The next date to watch will be January 10th when the SEC will have to make a decision on ARK Invest's filing. And finally this week Bitcoin has not only been the topic of courtrooms but boardrooms as well. Companies continue to take different approaches when it comes to embracing or rejecting this new monetary technology. We saw two major companies take very different stances this past week. The first came from Chase Bank in the UK when it put out a notice to customers that it will be banning crypto linked payments and transfers citing the fraud and criminal activity associated with crypto. Chase UK justified this censorship announcement by stating that the bank is keeping its clients money safe and secure. Now it's no surprise to see Chase taking the stance given that Bitcoin threatens its core business as a financial intermediary. With Bitcoin there's no need for Chase to be a middleman and take fees with every transaction. Meanwhile Honda appears to be making moves to accept Bitcoin for payment. The Japanese car giant has entered a partnership with a blockchain payment system called FCF Pay. This partnership will allow customers to use cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin to purchase or lease Honda products in lieu of traditional fiat currencies. In the coming years I think companies will continue to be forced to make a decision on how they will approach the growing demand for Bitcoin. Some companies like Honda will benefit from embracing the tech while others like Chase will probably lose ground to competitors that do recognize the benefits that Bitcoin can bring to their business.

Until next time keep stacking.
A highlight from 1262. Anti-CBDC Bill Vote! | 27 to 20 Stablecoins vs CBDCs
"You do not want to miss this one, we're going to be breaking down the CBDC vote that happened yesterday in DC. Also taking a look at a number of clips that'll give you some alignment as to what the future of CBDCs here in the United States might look like. We're going to break all that down for you. It's going to be a good one. My name is Paul Bearer, welcome back into Tech Path. Before we get started, I want to thank our sponsor, that's Tangem. And this is all about self -custody. When you think about CBDCs, you got to think about self -custody. Check out tangem .com, you can learn a little bit more about their wallet. They do slim as a bank card, secure as a bank vault, store, buy, earn, transfer, and swap thousands of coins and tokens. If you want to use their card, you can do so with two different types. You can get the classic wallet, or you can get this new Tangem wallet that is a new type of card that's going to give you optional seed phrases. You can order these in three -card packs, so it's very easy. I would suggest doing that, spend a little bit extra for that. Use our discount code to help kind of soften the blow there. But it's a great value, check it out, we'll leave a link down below, it does help the channel out. Let's get into a couple of the things that happened yesterday. The two I want to focus on are these right here. The Power of the Mint Act, and then also the CBDC Anti -Surveillance State Act. These were the two that were focused on primarily. And I want to go to an intro clip real quick to give you kind of a framework of how this all started there in D .C. Listen in. Today we'll consider a slate of legislation to bolster our national security, protect Americans' financial privacy, and shield our financial system from the risks associated with the potential central bank digital currency, or CBDC. Unlike decentralized cryptocurrencies, a central bank digital currency is a digital form of sovereign currency that is designed and issued by a government and transacts on a digital ledger that is controlled by that government. If not designed to emulate cash, could give the federal government the ability to surveil and restrict Americans' transactions. This is not just alarming, it's downright un -American. We've already seen examples of governments weaponizing their financial system against their citizens in China. We need to counter China by being the best version of ourselves. This bill expresses that sentiment that, yes, we're going to innovate and we're going to lead on blockchain and we're going to lead on digital assets, but we're going to do so the American way. And the way we do that is decentralized. We don't do this by centralizing it in a central bank. We can achieve the innovation potential of blockchain and the immediacy of payments and the frictionless payments future with what we did in July. And that is to create a regulatory framework for stablecoin. All right, so there's some fire in the belly of the lawmakers. I like what I'm hearing so far. This sounds pretty good. But we get into more. And remember, there's always a bad guy. So let's go, maybe girl, we'll go to the next clip with Maxine Waters. Thank you very much, Mr. Chairman. Unfortunately, Republicans are marking up one bill that is not bipartisan. We do know that 130 countries around the world are racing to develop and implement a CBDC. What will happen if CBDCs issued by other central banks gain traction as a preferred method of payment in international trade transactions? Are we comfortable allowing the Chinese yuan or currencies from other countries to overtake the U .S. dollar as a principal global reserve currency? Republicans are making baseless attacks against the CBDC that does not even exist. So with that, I yield back the balance of my time. All right, so Maxine in rare form, I shouldn't say rare, normal form with her. She's, of course, for the idea of CBDCs. The other thing, a lot of what she said could be applied to stablecoins. And what we're seeing around the world, this is the first time I think we are chasing other governments who are actually trying to suppress their citizens. I would kind of be in a position or the camp of not going that direction. I like what I'm hearing so far. But let's go into our next clip. This is going to be Mr. Sherman listening. And allowing the Federal Reserve to continue doing what they're doing, literally recruiting and hiring people in the San Francisco Fed office to build a central bank digital currency is the financial equivalent of allowing the empire from Star Wars to build the Death Star so long as they promise not to turn it on. I'm struck by the hypocrisy of the advocates of cryptocurrency. They come in and they say cryptocurrency is wonderful because it's digital and it's high tech and it's innovative. And then they propose a bill which, in the words of the ranking member, is an anti -innovation bill. And they describe the U .S. government as Darth Vader. They describe any attempt to enforce American laws as the action of Darth Vader in the empire. As Sam Bankman -Fried has demonstrated, crypto is perfect for hiding from your creditors. And while his body may be in jail, his money cannot be found. I yield back. General McNeil's back. Thank you. I just have some, you know, obviously I'm opposed to this bill, but I just want to know what I'm arguing against. All right. You can't make this stuff. What am I going against? I don't even know what I'm going against. All right. Well, the point is, is that Sherman's usually in that kind of position. Anti -innovation. I thought that was a rare little piece right there. Both these guys are going to go against anything that I think the Republicans or even to a certain extent, the bipartisan Capitol Hill lawmakers will go when it comes to crypto or anything that is even related to blockchain. Let's get into our next clip. This goes into a little bit more about the unbanked. Listen in. And the idea that this is somehow going to help the unbanked is insane. Because when you ask the unbanked, why are you unbanked? A lot of it is because of surveillance capitalism. A permissionless system would be something more similar to Bitcoin. You could digitize it. And frankly, that's why a lot of people have been drawn in the unbanked and underbanked community to crypto currencies like Bitcoin. I think one of the speakers for this bill said that people aren't banked because they oppose the quote surveillance state. People aren't banked because they don't have any money. It's amazing. The people who aren't banked are the people who don't have any money. I'd be willing to support this bill if it also ended crypto. Well, that's an interesting statement there. When you go to the FDIC site, this is the 2021 FDIC national survey of unbanked and underbanked households. Look at some of the data here on this. An estimated four and a half percent of U .S. household, approximately 5 .9 million were unbanked. This is 2021. OK, likelihood of this is much greater. Remember, we have a lot of immigrants in our country that in many cases also are coming from countries who they've seen their banking system maybe not work out so well for them. And they are very, very skeptical because of that. Some don't have enough money to meet minimum balance requirements, as cited, but around 21 percent. But most don't trust banks. This was the second most cited main reason for not having an account. Avoiding a bank gives more privacy was the third most cited main reason, 8 .4 percent. Further into the report, this was a piece right here. Who are the unbanked and underbanked breaking this out? Most is distrust of banks, inconvenient locations, high bank account fees, needed products and services are not offered by banks, poor credit history, you know, check system, etc. Typical challenges I think a lot of people in the unbanked sector face. Let's go to our next clip. I think this is a good one right here. This gets into the privacy side of things. I think there's what 2000 stable coins that are out there right now. None of them, none of them protects the security of American citizens privacy. And when an American citizen puts all their information out in the private sector and it's available to 200 different retailers and banks and and other governments, there is no expectation of privacy. That's our problem here. Some of my colleagues gloss over the fact the whole reason they're collecting the data in the first place is the government makes them collect it. Frankly, if you don't agree to spy on your customers, you don't get to operate a bank in the United States. You don't get to operate a money service business in the United States, essentially get permission from the government to act as a financial services institution. So long as you spy on your customers. About million 350 pieces of evidence sitting over at the Treasury on private sector activity, these giant, enormous government databases, which have been hacked, both the IRS and others, Office of Personnel Management and others do present tremendous targeting by bad actors. You know, this is really where it gets into the destruction of personal privacy. And this is the problem that we do face in our society. Some of the countries that are already down this slippery slope, countries like China, as an example, right here, China's central bank digital currency. This is the digital ID to deduct fines instantly from your digital wallet if you're caught for speeding or jaywalking by a surveillance system. So right there, this kind of shows the actual crime of jaywalking now portrayed on basically a bulletin board in front of everyone. And then, of course, automatically deducted. These are the kind of invasion capabilities. Talk about, you know, search and seizure. This is going to be able to break down the walls of search and seizure and do things within our own economies and within our own society that we would never dream of, especially around the Constitution. This is China right here. Super SIM cards now featuring new digital yuan functions is this super SIM card right here. It's going to function as a digital yuan wallet, smart card and I .D. cards as the nation's CBDC pilot continues. So this is going on to phones and will make its way into a position where you can no longer utilize because you have digital wallet. Now your wallet and you're going to be able to use this in a way in which you go to a grocery store, you go to any retailer and you use that as a payment for form. And that's where they can lock it down. And that's exactly what I think these lawmakers are fighting against. Let's go to our next clip. This will continue to show you a little bit more about this slippery slope of privacy. Look at my uncle and my cousin helped me get a cell phone that is linked to a Chinese bank card so that I could buy anything pleasing and I have to pass facial recognition identity verification, which is insane, because all I want to do is just spend my gift card balance on this debit.
A highlight from The Next Generation of Caller ID is all about KYC, Numeracle Podcast
"This is Doug Green, and I'm the publisher of Telecom Reseller, and I'm very pleased to have with us today, Brett Nemiroff, Vice President of Engineering, Voice at Numerical. Brett, thank you for joining me today. Thank you for having me, Doug. Well, I'm excited to have another Numerical podcast. We're always interested in hearing what's new and interesting. We're going to be talking about the next generation of caller ID, and the next generation caller ID is about KYC. Is it all about vetted identity? But we're also going to be talking about, right at the beginning of this, a little story, the dark side of caller ID. And Brett, maybe you could kick this off with telling us how that conversation began. How did we end up talking about the dark side of caller ID? Yeah, so it all started off, I was actually putting together a masterclass on caller ID for Numerical's masterclass series. And actually, while I was putting together my slide deck, I actually received a phone call on my cell phone, and the caller ID that showed up on it was Darth Vader. I know this sounds like I'm probably making this up, the timing seems too coincidental, but this actually happened. Now, I don't know what you guys would do, but me seeing the phone ringing and saying Darth Vader on my phone, I answered that call, because I wanted to know who would do something like that, who wasn't. Obviously, I thought that it was a telemarketer, that would be the most likely thing, but it wasn't. It was actually a wrong number. asked And I Mr. Vader how he happened to set his caller ID. Now, as a telecom engineer, I know a handful of ways to do this, but I'm just kind of curious, how does someone who's not a telecom engineer figure out how to do this? And he explained to me that all he did is he went to his carrier's website, and just changed his name. That's it. And he hit submit. And the next day, he was making calls to Darth Vader. And it just kind of underscores just how big of a problem this is with caller ID, is that it is not the source that we can trust. And it's the kind of thing that it does not take a tremendous amount of technical competence to figure out how to change your name, and ultimately, how to change it to something that might make your call more likely to get answered by somebody. And that's exactly what happened when Darth Vader called me, is it was more interesting, and so I used that information that was presented to me to decide to answer the call. And that is how we have fundamentally lost trust in the telephony network, because of that. So, Brett, you know, all that really basically connects what you do every day at Numerical. What is your job at Numerical, and how does it connect you to your story? Right, so I'm the VP of engineering voice at Numerical. So I'm basically trying to help build solutions to bring verified identity for enterprises to their phone calls. And ultimately, what we're trying to do is to restore and to improve trust of those phone calls. So right now, enterprises have the problem of their calls being blocked or mislabeled, and they're unable to get people to answer their calls because of that. So walk us through this for a second. You know, caller ID seemed to be such a competent, able, perfect solution. We knew it was calling. That was easy peasy. And here we are, and you're taking a call from Darth Vader, right? It seems to be a broken system. Yeah, so for almost 100 years in the telephony network, the phone experience was pretty much the same. Now, I know that we've changed to like digital communications and everything. But even before that, if you just think of the basic experience, where you connect to somebody, you make their phone ring, they don't know who's calling necessarily, and they answer the call, then you have a, and you have communications. Now that experience was pretty much the same for about 100 years. And about 1995, that all changed from caller ID came out. And when caller ID came out. we Now, were able to transmit the name of the person who was calling and people who are receiving phone calls can make decisions about whether or not they wanted to answer the call. Now, at that time, which was really pre competition in the telephony space, it was pretty much the phone company, putting that name on to the phone line. In addition to that, this was really pre VoIP. And when we're talking about caller ID, we're talking about caller line ID, the phone calls were very much this wire is connected to the to one person on the call, which is connected to a wire on the other person on the other side of the call. And so caller ID was very much associated to the actual phone line itself. In 1996, with deregulation, and the introduction of all this competition, and new technologies like voice, we don't now have nailed wires going from person to person, we have phone calls going over the internet, and they're not actually being originated from where the phone number looks like it's coming from. So now we have people making phone calls, and having to transmit different IDs on that call. So at one point, when caller ID originally came out, we learned to trust that source and that solution, because that's all that existed, the phone company was actually putting that information on there. When competition came into the space, and they were also allowed to put names on there, it's no longer a controlled solution, we have hundreds, if not thousands of companies now that are able to put that on there. And if you think about it, originally, when the caller ID solution came out, the phone company was not thinking, how do we make this safe and secure when independent phone companies come out and start putting this information on it, they didn't think about the security layer in there. So now we've got this problem of thousands of service providers now talking on this communication channel without any kind of security to ensure that whatever name is transmitted really is who is making that phone call, we don't really know if it's Darth Vader or not, we're not really checking anymore. So you're describing something that had great utility, and now, I guess doesn't have any utility. It actually, it does have a utility still, and unfortunately, the utility now is to mislead and deceive. To trick you. It is to trick you. So when you take a look at what telemarketers will do, they will intentionally change their caller ID to make you think that maybe it's your kid's school, it's somebody down the street, maybe it's the pharmacy calling you. So the utility has changed, and we as individuals, not even telecom engineers like me, we have learned to look at that and not trust it. We know it's not right anymore. And that is something that we as an industry have to come together and find ways to fix that if we want phone calls to remain relevant as the communications change. Okay, so what can be done? It all starts with know your customer. And as it as it is today, you know, the FCC has mandated KYC for service providers when they bring in customers, but the actual definitions of what is KYC and how is KYC done is pretty much left up to the service provider. Now, here at Numerical, we've put together our model standards for KYC. And that's something that we've published with the FCC. So if you're a service provider, and you don't know if you're doing KYC good enough, that's something I would encourage you to download and take a look at. It's something that you can easily adopt yourself and perform KYC. That's the first part. The second part is, is really adopting technological standards that enforce identity to be transmitted into phone calls. And that's something that we don't really have as a as a fully baked solution today. And that's something that Numerical is working hard is bringing identity into the phone communication channel. Let me see if you can connect the dots better for me. How does KYC then feed into what used to be caller ID? How does that connect up? How does that solve the problem? Well, caller ID as it was originally deployed was something that a originating service provider would take the information from from a consumer and put it into a central database. That central database is known as LIDB or the line information database. There are several LIDBs out there, there's a problem of having that data sometimes even being synchronized. And then service providers on the far side are supposed to pull that information down and transmit it. But additionally, there is no methodology that exists today to encode cryptographically that information from the originator all the way to the terminator. So really, what we need is we need enterprises to be able to identify themselves for that identity to be vetted, and then for their calls to be cryptographically signed for that information to transmit all the way from the enterprise to the terminating service provider. That way, there's no way to make a bad call in the network without completely telling the entire network exactly who you are. And that's, that's something that needs to change that we can restore trust. And do you think that that can be done without being spoofed as we talked about earlier? So spoofing is something that comes up a lot. And it's a, it's a, it's a really touchy subject because spoofing isn't always bad. When people say spoofing, they always think that we're tricking somebody. But for example, if my, if my kid's school is going to call me and tell me that after school activities have been canceled because of bad weather, they're probably not making those phone calls. They have hired a third party company to make those calls on, on their behalf. And that third party company is spoofing the phone number of the school so that it looks like the school is calling me. And that's an example of spoofing. That's, that's perfectly okay. You see with doctor's offices, appointment scheduling, that's okay. It's not illegal. The problem that we have today is there's no way to really tell intent on the far side of the call whether or not it was okay or not. So one of the first things that we want to do is we want entities like the school to be able to present their identity with the call so that at the far side we can tell this is not a bad actor making the call. It is in fact this company. Or if at least they put their identity on there and they are doing something that they shouldn't do, we can point the finger directly at them, find out who their service provider is and we can disconnect them or provide other sources of enforcement. You know, Brett, one of the themes on all the numerical podcasts has been talking about business identity and the brand, basically brand integrity that. So, help me again connect the dots here, you know, it sounds like a very complicated and challenging environment. How can a single or individual enterprise or business. Essentially do the right thing for themselves in terms of protecting your identity and effectively communicating with their customers. Well, in today's ecosystem, the best thing that an enterprise can do today is to partner with a company like numerical that has a very, very rigorous KYC process to ensure that business identities are properly verified and vetted, and then loaded up into the appropriate analytics engines so that their identities are transmitted to their call recipients with as much integrity as possible. In the meantime, numerical is working with industry regulators and other thought leaders to come up with new technological ways that enterprises can transmit that identity cryptographically and cause to restore trust. Brett, as we finish up our podcast today, it seems to me that maybe there's two tracks to this as a practical sort of going forward. What should people do in the near and medium term? And what are we looking at in sort of the longer term? Right. So today, the best thing that enterprises can do is to work with companies like numerical to ensure their brand identity and to make sure that the presentation of their phone calls is as favorable as possible. And that's specifically to help address the problem of blocking and labeling. But as an industry, we need thought leaders coming together, working on the new technologies, new methodologies to ensure that brand integrity can be verified, vetted and transmitted across the network with cryptographic signatures to ensure that call recipients will know exactly who's calling and can make good decisions on whether or not they want to answer those calls. Brett, I really want to thank you for joining us today. I know this was your first time on our podcast series, but I know it won't be our last. There's a lot to talk about for now and in the future. But for now, thank you very much for joining us. Hey, where can we learn more about numerical? You can go to numerical .com where you can see our masterclass series and get more information or you can subscribe to our Tuesday Talks podcast. Brett, we're looking forward to doing just that and I'm looking forward to our next podcast. For now, thanks very much indeed. Thank you, Doug.
Unpacking the Details of the Original "Dune" With Chris Kohls
"Talk about the weaknesses. Let's talk about the good stuff to begin with. Well, a lot of it is the details. I mean, you've got, first of all, who walks in at the beginning of the film. It's captain Picard. And it's Al and it's Al from quantum leap who turns out to be the traitor in the film spoiler alert. Yes. And I'm just sitting there, I'm going, okay, these are already childhood favorites of mine. And Patrick Stewart. Dean Stockwell, an amazing cast. There are some really stand out actors. I actually think that the lead was quite well cast. I think he was quite well cast. And the chick that was in you'll know her name. The chick that was in Blade Runner. Yeah, from Blade Runner. Absolutely beautiful. And even his mother absolutely stunning woman and did a really good job and they did really, really well. Like some of the actors did really well in this film. And even the actors that I think I didn't like because they were too theatrical. I think they were actually fine because I think that's maybe what the director wanted, but it's not what I want to see in a sci-fi film. Talking about theatrical just for a second column, the lead Paul atreides. He had just graduated, theater school. He was in a play in Seattle. He never been to LA, never been to allay as an actor. And this was the first time he'd ever done anything for TV or movies. Not too bad. Yeah, and he was well, I mean, he has that fresh face. He has that look of optimism that sort of Luke Skywalker esque character. And yeah, I think he was well cast. Again, I just think it was a little too theatrical, but you know, there are things like if I compare the main villain, the primary villain. The baron, the baron, the baron, harkonnen. If I compare him to Darth Vader, Darth Vader is one of the most iconic villains in the history of cinema. Darth Vader looks cool. Okay, Darth Vader looks cool. Harkonnen is revolting.
"darth vader" Discussed on C.G.Jung Helpdesk
"As the Roman Empire faded and gave way to something else. This story is pretty weird as Christianity came up fairly newly, Nietzsche saw it as one reason as a reaction to having massive slaves in Rome. One point the population of Rome was 90% slaves. So a strange thing to think about when you say a Romans prosecuted the Christians are roughly 200 years later Christianity became the main religion of the Roman Empire. It's a little bit if you remember it from Star Wars the very first Star Wars movie. There's the old wise men probably one can always and is fighting against the big bad guy which Darth Vader and at a certain point over on Canova doesn't find any money like when you kill me, I will get stronger anticipate on top of data. And it would be like that 200 years then later everybody would be a Jedi and empire would say, okay, yeah, everybody says Jenna. So this complete switch from, okay, we're persecuting all the Christians to the point where they're like, hey, we are actually Christians. This huge turn of mental mind shifting. Young saw as this change of ions from areas. I'm hoping I'm pronouncing it correctly. This is vicious, which is why the idea of Jesus Christ and the pictures that are very associated on many, many livers in the Christian church with the fish and Jesus that this connection comes from the collective unconscious from this ionic view of changing science and this influences humanity and how it brings out culture. So you have this very extreme shift suddenly because a Roman Empire declines rapidly their religion fails the state fails everything fails and out of it Christianity is on a Christianity as some of the dominant force for 2000 years is only possible when there's this Christian element active in the psyche of all people in the western world almost and he sees this upheaval as pushing from the collective unconsciousness. This is a point where all creative and cultural work is coming from and dreams and symbols and so on and it's all very fresh centered extremely first centered business the coincidence which is then kind of weird again and synchronistic to have this point of time happening. And to say this is changes of ions means a complete change of the undercurrent in the psyche and this is why there's huge upheaval, huge changes in a very short time and revolution and plant Christianity really tore part, a lot of pieces of the Roman Empire. That's why the Romans did not like it because suddenly families were torn apart because the young people all wanted to be Christians and they rent out into the deserts and the cemeteries was on the farm. Everybody wanted to be poor, which was not the Roman style. The Roman Star Wars really you want to be extremely successful. You want to war and move on, you get all your riches and you get fame and all the Romans they had rooms in their houses with the ancestor wall that were busts of all the ancestors going back generations and all the kids would be pushed there by their parents and saying, this is your great great great grandfather he did that and this is your great
"darth vader" Discussed on Addiction Unlimited Podcast | Alcoholism | 12 Steps | Living Sober | Addiction Treatment
"Was not driving the ship. Well, that's one of the things that I think motivated the book and what I write about in the book and sort of like how I end the book. Your life is really like an evolving story. And it has heroes and villains. And the villain of your story is your addiction. And you have to fight against Darth Vader and he's your addiction. And eventually, if you believe in yourself and you do the work, you'll win, and you'll save the galaxy. And but ultimately, really what you're doing is you're writing your own story, you're in control of the story. You're the screenwriter director of your own life and you have complete creative control. And that's really what I think a lot of people can learn so right is that everything is possible and sobriety. You can write any script you want. And your locus of control is now external and you can do things as opposed to being so constrained by a story and imprisoned by a dead end story, which is addiction. It's a story which usually always ends the same way. And it has an unhappy ending. So we go to movies because we want happy endings, right? So write your own movie. Yeah, yeah, that's excellent. The name of the book is addicted in film, movies we love about the habits we hate. I will link that in the show notes for everybody out there that wants to grab that.

"darth vader" Discussed on Cinemavino
"And it's a motherfucker too. That's two styles. Yeah. Boom. That's a hybrid. I thought it was very weird saying Hayden Christensen himself and the mask with his voice. I didn't mind it. Yeah, it was interesting. It wasn't bad. It was just weird, unexpected. It was stolen from rebels, though. Ahsoka fights Vader. And they have the exact same thing in the exact same spot. I think. I think so. But it did seem interesting. I was like, I was wondering, 'cause you see all of Anakin's wounds whenever he, you know, in Revenge of the Sith, but I was like, oh, is this like a new wound that OE one gave him like on top of the head? Like, that's all I remember from return of the Jedi, when he takes off his head and it's the top of his head is all jacked up. That's weird. So I wonder if, I don't know if this is, oh, a new scar. But I was really looking forward like I was like, I wanted him to have the crazy red yellow eyes. And they did it eventually, but it didn't quite didn't pop. It didn't pop like it did in rebels. Also, is it safe to say that they kind of went overboard with the lightsaber under lighting? Yeah. I feel like they really overplayed the lights coming off the lightsaber. Yeah, it was very LED. Yeah. A little too ambient. It felt like a dude shown off is like LED lit desk. Check out my sweet lighting. Yeah. Day 20s. No, they tends, but I keep them clean. It's like sometimes I use this red light saber to develop photographs in a dark room. Yeah. That'd be awesome. Vader was very fast. Walking up to Obi-Wan. I was like, all right, you know, we've seen maybe he's older, whatever. These are just my little nitpicks. Also, Vader with a fucking star destroyer or what's the next level up of star destroyer? Imperial star cruiser. Whatever superstar story, I believe. Superstar. Was he was in a superstar. Super saiyan destroyer? Whatever it was. Again, that thing has a fuck ton of tie fighters like why wouldn't you we're just going to shoot at them slowly? No, I mean, yeah, they went after Obi-Wan, which I guess I understand it. It's the play, whatever. But yada, yada, yada. And because the yada yada yada. But again, once Obi-Wan lands, if you know where that ship is, like I would send one tie fighter, we're like, hey, just go and just blow that ship to smithereens. So he can't get off this rock. Yeah. If nothing else, like he can't go anywhere and I'm tired of chasing this dude. I kind of assumed that he was going to take off in Darth Vader ship because Darth Vader ship would have a hyper speed. Yeah. Not knowing that the ship that he had the entire time also had fucking a hyperdrive. Yeah. Wasn't that the whole point is that they're going slo-mo because they can't fix their hybrid. Well, guess what? There's a motivator that works in the fucking way ship there's so many, there's so many holes in this entire fucking series. It was at about a 6, it needed to be at about an 8 or 9. For an Obi-Wan series, step with the fuck up..
"darth vader" Discussed on Telecom Reseller
"This is Don went with the channel daily news from telecom reseller. Today, we'll actually look at everybody know that we're here at channel parkers and this is a lot bigger than last year. And it looks like it's going to be a really, very positive return. And today we're speaking with Sean swinging. He is head of sales and strategy with how are you doing today? I'm great. Happy to be here. Before we get started in discussion, can you provide our listeners a little overview of your organization? Sure. So we're a relatively new company. We've been around for about 8 years now, working in the edge compute and private networking space. And we've got approximately 50 people or so, both here in the states and then also in India. And we just started to really open up with customer attraction. And we're really excited about where we're at from a development perspective. We've just gone through an amazing period of time for the country and the world. And that put a lot of wrenches on the gears of communication. And the strategy has had to be modified significantly and what kind of challenges have you had to overcome? So I came to aleph about four months or so ago and what attracted me to the model that aleph was proposing is that this is a software approach to the edge, having worked for a number of both hardware and also service companies, I realized that this was a very different approach to how to build networks, how to build private networks and I was immediately attracted to it based on what a 6 years of selling solutions that were really quite different in terms of the hardware composition, the complexity and so forth. And I think ala is an edge platform API that essentially simplified the deployment of private networking initially and then the longer term requirements that any enterprise might have for enterprise edge computing. And so for me, I think it's the right place at the right time. You're going to be getting into a market with some people that have a long track record. How are you going to stand up against those large carrier? So having worked for the large carrier, am I allowed to speak like Darth Vader now? Absolutely..

How the Wokeness Is Killing the Simple Joy of Sports
"I caught up on this, Uh 30 for 30, ESPN special at the 1986 Mets, the World Series team. Jim is a big Mets fan producer, Jim and he had told me this is such a great show. You got to watch it. So I sat down for four hours. I couldn't turn away the 1986 Mets, and it reminds me I was a Yankees fan, not a Mets fan, but I was very happy to Mets won the 1986 World Series. I was a kid and I was I was 12. I mean, you know, I'm not thinking about solving the world's problems at 12 years old. But I was happy for them. My mom was a Mets fan and that stunning World Series victory, of course with the Bill Buckner era and it's a real shame, because you know, Bill Buckner is such a great player and became You know, it's infamous for that one plane he shouldn't have. He was such a great player throughout his career. I mean, it was just right. Jim Buckner was a great hitter. I mean, if phenomenal player and it's really a shame that a lot of people just associated with that one moment But I watched that upset victory. The Mets come back in the ninth, and I remember just losing my mind being so happy for my mom and she was screaming, jumping up and down and this guy Phil's house we were at it was a friend of Of hers at the time. But Comey thinking How mad I am now. I don't mean like man at the world are mad at you. I mean mad at what the sports world. Dead. I had such special memories and I was a kid sports. I did I, uh, you know those moments. You you all know. I mean, if your guys ladies out there you were at a game with your dad or your mom or whatever, and home run gets hit in the beard gets thrown in the air and everything like that. People throw and popcorn, peanuts, crackerjacks all over the place. Whatever. Everybody's just going nuts together something about the collective energy of the crowd. Sports brings us that. It's a form of entertainment. You don't see that the movie theater, right? I mean, very rarely in a movie theater. You know, you're not watching, like return to the Jedi, where Luke Skywalker throws Darth Vader over the thing, and everybody gets up in cheers. That just doesn't happen. But it happens in sports, right and those moments I missed them. I've been, uh, stranger to sports for the last few years because of the Wokeness and I just don't want to. It's just not my thing. I just can't take it and I'm really mad. Like many of you are There's a special moments to me. I remember every second of that 1986 Mets World Series. I remember there was sitting at the end of the couch on the right side. And this guy Phil's house watching that And that feeling of elation and joy. Why'd you have to take that from us?

"This is wet notes here on scuba shock. Radio for friday may twenty one two thousand and twenty one first up. Today's news from the history of diving museum down in. I'll mirada florida about a month ago. On april twenty first to be precise. They opened up a new exhibit at the museum. This new exhibit is called diving in pop culture and it runs through december two thousand and twenty one the exhibit showcases. The underwater world portrayed in advertising entertainment and mainstream culture. The museum says that there is something for everyone. They have the regulator that was used in star wars. I think i read somewhere that a been an old decor that was used for darth vader's heavy breathing. They also have stuff from jaws men of honor and of course see hunt. Yes it's still alive. This is not a virtual So you'll have to get down to i'll miranda before december thirty first to catch diving in pop culture. Pick or it didn't happen. That's the tagline used by light. I'm sure to have my acolyte. Olympus t g six rig when i head down on a couple of days well i just saw that. They are running a contest for people to design their new pick or it didn't happen shirt. The design winner will get five hundred dollars worth who i like year. That's pretty nice. I hope you also get a teacher now. The contest opened on may first and runs until june sixth. So he's not a lot of time. The designs must be underwater photos or have underwater theme. And you must incorporate pick or it didn't happen into the design. No other words are allowed. You cannot use the ike light logo or any other copyrighted material the entry form on the lake blog so you have to search for light contest to find the link. I wasn't able to get to directly from their main websites. Who just do a little bit of searching there so fire up your creative juices and enter the pick or it didn't happen. T shirt design contest from michael. Light is reef. Well this is very interesting. Hope reef is an initiative that is being sponsored by shiba. The cat food brand hope reef is in sulawesi indonesia and they are planning to restore one hundred eighty five thousand square meters of reef spells out hope and apparently you can spot the letters on google earth. The purpose beyond restoration is to drive awareness and show how positive change can happen in our lifetime. Hope was unveiled on may fifth. Two thousand twenty one but it actually started two years ago is using something called restare technology that incorporates centimeter wide steel stars that the corals can attach to hope reef has its own youtube channel and you can check out the short one minute and thirty eight second video called the film that grows coral. It's called the film that grows coral because all advertising revenues from the film support the hope reef. Just go out there and search hope brief. Take a look diving with a purpose. That's exactly what a team of divers started last week. According to an associated press article. That i read this team of five to ten. Divers started a massive six month effort to clean up lake. Tahoe out in california. Their plan is to cover seventy two miles of shoreline and their goal is to conduct three dives each week to a depth of about twenty five feet. The team will be running this dive schedule from now through november. The operation is being sponsored by a nonprofit called. Clean up the lake. It was founded by a guy named colin west who is a diver and a filmmaker. The ultimate cost of this endeavor is two hundred and fifty thousand dollars on that i dive. They pulled two hundred pounds of trash from lake tahoe and tagged twenty larger items for subsequent removal. It's amazing that people still use our lakes rivers and oceans as garbage dumps. Good luck to this team for making a difference and diving with a purpose in case you missed it. Psi pci the gurus scoop scuba cylinder inspection. Recently posted a short article on died news wire. They needed to dispel a couple of rumors. Flying around out there about scuba tanks. One was about old luxury tanks. But that's not what i want to talk about here. Apparently there is a really bad rumor going around that beginning in two thousand and twenty one. Steel cylinders are exempt from ota cleaning requirements. What how did that one start. That is just unsafe and dangerous. Cg a or the compressed gas association states oh to cleaning is required for anything above twenty three point five percent over to please please please make sure you get your tanks properly serviced and cleaned for. Oh two as necessary thanked. Psi pci and finally. Here's some news from vermont. The remote business magazine recently reported there has been an appeal of the vermont agency of natural resources permit to sink the one hundred and fifty two foot ferry and the adirondack. as an artificial reef in lake champlain. The vermont national resource council via in the lake champlain committee. Lc has appealed to permit the vn rc's policy and water program director. John grove been. Doesn't think that this sinking is for the benefit of the people of vermont as it only serves a small group of divers. Laurie fisher the executive director of el-sisi stated that lake champlain is not a dumping ground. She feels the pcb's and other contaminates from the ferry will impact their drinking. Water she indicated that lake champlain. Already has one hundred racks and doesn't need the mvp honor adirondack on the bottom certainly an interesting perspective wondering how this will turn out.

Reaction and Analysis of McLaren's MCL35M Car Launch
"Twenty twenty one formula one seasons first major milestone took place that eight mclaren revealing. It's twenty twenty one call the mc l. thirty find and the team finished third and the twenty twenty constructors championship. And it's sayings powell. Thanks to trump as well as getting don ricardo as replacement for karla signs genius with all that change comes expectation and pressure and in this remark podcast recording. We'll be discussing what we learned from town. Today i'm joined sports f jonathan able to sports reports late smith and our technical editor jacob. Select and jake. I'm coming to you. I i question today what are the main takeaway technical changes that you've spotted on the mci five if he changes. There's a lot similar As we expected because twenty twenty cars we know very similar to was twenty. Twenty one calls with regards. Take the carry chassis for covid. Nineteen times Being still prevalent as well so does a few little changes Obviously we know that as the switch to mercedes and that's how big knock on effect to the rear of the car As we know every team has been lifted. Two tokens which they may spend on a certain area of the cost Areas requests takings to to develop The rea- off the chassis takes too so maclean seems to suspend its allowance on developing the era of the of the car. Try get as much bang free stock as it can because switching to the gym obviously if it can improve things there as well then. That's us what he's got a day. let's frontino which is relatively the same. As last year they introduce the. If you like mercedes star news In practicing magellan the carried forward. And i think part of the thinking behind that was because obviously that requires a cross strokes to change to to change in that requires tokens and so if they could do it right in the middle of the season than they wouldn't have to spend it going forward this season Hit them a little bit hard in when when the new updates first came out but they got it together. The end of the season. The place constructors championships. Obviously these changes date eventually bath fruits. But i think the key thing is of mentioned. The tokens have been spent on the rear of the chassis. The mercedes engine is not running power unit. It's a different architecture. It's a different layout and they've got to know. Just consider the mounting points on the chassis but cooling requirements as well and these will have a knock on effect on how the chassis is developed. So that's something they've had to consider. I think the most obvious showing if that is the change. The shape in the air intake before it isn't massively exciting. Last year. Had something of a darth vader mask kind of design which was is incredibly strange design. If you like is a lot more conventional this time it falls in line with what mercedes has every power unit has different cooling requirements Different architectures mentioned in the so getting the right cooling the right parts and the right amounts of cooling is is ideal so that's why they've gone to not direction obviously facing them say he's power unit into the back as well. That's that's something of a change so you'll the body sculpting in different way if you look to reaching point williams and mercedes as well last year. You'd see they'd have sleeping design on on the top of the sideboards and that's just to simply allow to drop down and on top of the floor and if you build you allowing high pressure that's to the floor. And if you building that pressure difference you're getting the disease to work harder now as we know another knock on effect of these regulations is the diffuse the as less potent this time around. They've had fifty millimeters lopped off the internal fences and so getting the to work as hard as it can is absolutely vital and say trying to get that clean athletes the back of the car. That's going to be so so important. In this situation to the regulations and other thing that we denote as well as the flows of changed mclaren has given us a glimpse of what it might look like by. Think that keeping their cards close to the chest on that one if you look at it. It's very very pads down. Let's say it's it's quite simplistic and we saw designs in practice the end of last year. That were a lot more complex. It'd be fat to say so again. Yeah the keeping something that keeping that caused cliffs that chest on that one because this might be an area of intense development of such but if team has a really good idea for that and is able to make up any ground. They've lost because they've lost of the all of these toys at the rear. End the slots the cuts if they can make up with what they do have available to them. It'd be a very lucrative area of development. So i think they're trying to sort of you know play expectations down on that front and just at the rear as well. The railing end. Play is brand new. If you'd seen that curved streak design something that has invented which is something. We don't say a whole lot on this on this channel but something they invent since one thousand nine hundred thousand. Something red bull ran with as well in in twenty twenty. So it's an interesting inclusion. it'd be interesting to see how how that works with the rest of the car. So there's a few to summarize a few new bits that we can see. I think there are more to come. By as a continuation. Looks very very sensible development of mclaren pops what we were

You sit granted there were no other sift but still i mean that's a fantastic feat to accomplish as a paddle one right i. No trials can live up to that. Yeah trials can live up to that and so he thinks that this has been an is ready to take on a pat on and will be the master that i think he could be and so i think that he thinks that open will be better master than crying on us. He feels like he's ready for anikin if if this guy was able to beat the if he can easily train the chosen one so but we but you were talking about it. You guys advocate. Scott are me. Obi wan kenobi really does tap into his fear and his aggression And his emotion to defeat. This right is this is samuela. You think this is a mistake at this point i do. I think that it's wrong to put such a young jet. I in a position of okay. Well you're just europe hat on right now. You haven't finished your training. Why don't you go ahead and jump up to levels to master and train the chosen one from the prophecy thing. You can do that for me. I think that that is too much pressure to put on a excuse me on such a young. We want at this point. If he's convicted he could have had him say promise. You leave in the order and make sure he's trained by the right jedi. Yoda or whoever right. I don't think that it was right to put such a responsibility on. Obi wan at that point especially after such a i mean. Also what's he supposed to say. He has no choice. I'm sorry the dying wish of your master right like i can say no so. I think it put on in a really bad position. I think that obi one was the best choice for master foreign. Can i think that. And can obi wan used his emotions. And that already defied part of the jet. I order and can has attachments. And so that defies the order so other masters will be so set in their ways that they won't be able to dream and akins because of that..

Entire army of droids battle droids on the surface of nabu waging an invasion and it's controlled by one switch right up by space. They take out that and it's like it wouldn't really. They didn't need the entire battle. They just send the republic out there with some fighters or some Destroyers or whatever whatever they have whatever they could just take him out there and blow up that ship and this whole thing would have been over at this point. Thank god they didn't so yeah. Yeah i've always been like confused by that and that's a that's like a trope that you see in so many different movies like the whole one thing destroys this entire like it shuts down the entire army. They even did it in the first avengers like when tony flew the nuke up there and it has the control ship and all the aliens atari died. Only it's such like cliche movie trove.

In that sense this is you can't give into them to you. Can't let them control you. Control your emotions. Not emotions are terrible in all sentence. Use your motions in certain areas but learn how to control them instead of just not using them period so yeah and then so yeah. You've got what we want right. He's fighting back like need said and he's actually a kind of it. Looks like he's well no looks like he's winning for a second and then it doesn't work out And he gets like stuck in the ventilation shaft or whatever which. I can't remember why is totally random but like where is that place located on. I remember like there's something. Sarah alice of some sort anyway. Anyway it was totally random. But there's that fight going on but then and again decides to Try and help out a bit on the fight above now the right. So he's in his little chef and he does you know the whole. Let's try spending padre listen right so but then he eventually none of that works and he crash lands you. Say that there. Yeah that's where he says that's interesting. Any you crashes inside that. Dig control shit croissant. Look in and he's like trying to figure out what to do in classic young anikin style. He's just pressing buttons and all of a sudden he blows up the main like every kid playing a video game. It's like you nayed at secrets. It was that. What was the name of the secrets of the empire.

He think he kills mall. Defeat small in this in this story. Oh i remember what. I was thinking actually from me. Basically that reactor shaft. Everyone's confused right because he had the low ground right. How did he win right. So apparently i. If i remember correctly like the the pows or whatever is located in the southern hemisphere so if you actually flip it upside down. He actually had the high ground so when he he.

Dr cities knows a lot and so he trained darth maul to be able to figure out how to do all these things and so no. I don't think like engine made any mistakes. I think that he just. He was bested by darth maul. Yes it makes the darth maul character. It turns the entire star wars mythology on. Its head at this point and for somebody like you know. We talked about it before in previous episodes. The last couple of weeks for me going into this movie as a star wars fanatic. Watching the djeddai at this point in time for the first time. We don't have the clone wars. We don't have rebels.

I'm only know. I'm i'm literally reading. Four books right now and only one of them is star wars and it tends to to drop because of the light priority. That i'm putting it tends to drop to the bottom of it but whatever time i read a live at the jet. I get more excited about it. I'm ready you bb nate. You said that your chapter seventeen is where things go into hyper drive. I've heard people say the chapter seventeen. I guy said describe chapter seventeen as he got the same feeling ring that as when iota was lifting the x. wing of dega. I just use like it's hard to explain. it's so night. yeah. I'm in chapter thirteen. I'm really slow with reading this book. And i'll i'll be the first admit i'm like i should lose my star wars fan guard over this but the reality is i've got a ton of other stuff that i'm doing right now. I'm putting out. Three pie are six. Plus one so six non star wars casts and then one star wars podcast a week right now in addition to all the stuff i've got to do so it's been. It's been a challenge. But i can't wait to get back to what we were talking about. Yeah being watching this in the theaters. The first time you think that the perfect at this point quite gone gene is the ultimate perfect janai. We want is his apprentice in. You know what he's going to become right at this point and darth maul is evil and he you. You truly don't expect i wasn't spoiled for this. We didn't have facebook and social media. And all that. I wasn't spoiled i was shocked. That quiet on jan was bested. Yeah darth ball with it. it did. It turned the entire story upside down for me As to where things were going. I assumed that we would see you. Know or yeah. Anna can trained to some extent brought back to the jet. I brought into the council and partially trained by cuagone. and that obviously didn't happen It's it's a pretty pretty pivotal moment in that. We'll come back to that in a second but there's a lot more stuff that are going around right now. You're cutting to other scenes kind of like a soap opera at this point..

"With this You know the first thing that happens really when we last left. The conversation in the last week was being quite on. Jim was meditating. Waiting for the blast. Doors of the shield shield ratio ratios. Those are to release so that he could go back into his conflict with this floor. The first floor. They've confronted within a thousand years right At this point he's at total peace. Obi wan is is walking around trying to figure out what to do. And and literally dr. Darth maul looks like caged lion That's where we ended last episode at this point the the ratios open up. Obi want me. Why am i doing that. I've got kanobi on. The brain are quite gone. Gin goes into this conflict with with darth maul. It doesn't last all that long now at this point and it feels to watching it now that we've seen it for twenty plus years twenty two years now. Can you believe it's almost been twenty two years while movie came out and dang and ninety nine nine year old. I am old This is an old movie. And i was old when it came out i was only like was i. Twenty five twenty four twenty four hundred came out. Yeah you're old. looks like a cage line. Yeah there's aga happens and it looks like he knew exactly what quite on june was going to do. He was prepared for it. Whoever was training him obviously cities. We know now atrocities his training in for this battle. That moment takes place. He baits quite gone. Jin into the move he expects and he takes them out in a in a heartbeat. At this point. What are your what. Were your thoughts. Or what are your thoughts as far as like where the story at this point now. That quite gone. Japan has been destroyed by sieff. Lord is this where we start to realize that this mythology this mythos i guess is the right word. This mythos regarding the djeddai has completely has completely crumbled. It's been linked bond proportion. Yeah it's it's it's it's it's been it's proven to be false at this point. I mean i was trying to understand how such a powerful jet. I like why i mean. He's a master on the he's been well he's been invited to be on the council but i mean he's he's a very powerful jeter. We know that. How was he bested by this pretty inexperienced undisciplined new. Seth right like where. What mistake did he make a le- let that happen. That's my question and it could be the fbi. He made a mistake or like you said the mythos behind the jet. I was all hype. Not necessarily what. It was all blown what it was. All chalked up to be the jin. Make a mistake in this battle. I mean obviously it cost him his life if he did or was darth maul. Just more prepared for this moment. I think that. I don't think quite often made a mistake. I think that he has an encounter anything like this so he doesn't know what to expect. These people are more aggressive than anything. He's thought before so he doesn't know what to do. And so these people are also trained. Duke who was trained in the arts and duku.

Much linear game in the path on the each level is the same path. You have to take take the correct path. You can't complete va level. Okay and you're saying open. World is different various. Oh man so generally what an open world game is as you have one really really big map right and when i say math. It's just like a place based right. You're in it's usually significantly larger than those levels like you would see in jaffa granted. There are a bunch of levels. I mean open. World game is like Spiderman and the new spider man game. The open world is literally the city of new york. I mean it's that big. Is it like the lego video games. No that's closer to the that's closer to on the you know if you're familiar with minecraft that's like taking the whole open world idea to a whole new level 'cause literally imminent but in this it'll just probably be a really really big map say a planet or maybe even like a star system but it's basically you're able to go from anywhere on that map at any point whenever you want to. So there's lots of explorer. Lots of side missions lots of characters and stuff so yeah being giving them expressed both excitement and reservation. And you say that. That's and i think even ut's earlier samuel ahead. So same. be nate explain. Why why you have reservations or concerns. My is that they make mainly open world game so they know what they're doing in that yes not. You thought They make mainly open world games so they know what they're doing that case we really does make me nervous so at they're known for kind of for these big ticket item games getting pre orders out early getting the money and putting on a half finished game. They've done that you just so people are not going to be good for star wars. Because they've already kind of had happened. That won't happen. And i'm sure it won't. Because they have a lot of pressure on them right now and so they need to make sure that this game is as good as it can be and i just. I'm excited because lot of most of the games that they've made even if they were put out half finish they finished them and have been fantastic. They've eventually completed and they've gotten them up to. They know they're doing. These are some of the most popular game. I've even heard of you know acids and stuff.

"About possible actors to play thron in this series and you are a pretty big tony. Stark fan That's your thing he's the guy There's some crazy rumors surfaced this week that he was in consideration for the role How would you have felt about that. Just i wouldn't have liked it at all explained. I just okay. He's an amazing actor but he just would not. I cannot see him filling that role. He's generally doesn't play bad from what i've from what i know of his film knowledge just not even a marvel and other things. He's generally plays the guy his his characteristics his mannerisms i mean sure. He plays the characters that he plays but he brings robert downey junior into each character. it wouldn't fit through. He's kind of this nonchalant kind of off the cuff character and that would not fit the cold calculating thrown plus the look. Just when i am. I i mean i guess you are on some prosthetics but yeah i would not be a fan of that idea. Well smokescreen screen. Uk is now reporting and we saw some of these reports coming yesterday while we were at the park and i researched a little bit this morning that multiple lucasville sources are confirming that lars. Mikkelsen will be returning air. We go to transition the character that he played on rebels in the live action. Which makes say with that source. One said it's all done. I can confirm that lars mikkelsen will be playing around in live action in the soka series. The deal might also include star. Wars live action shows beyond a soka. I'll let you know. And then stew said dave. He's been very keen on getting lars to play thrown in live action. He was his only real choice for the role seaweed. Belong in date felonious. We'd because this is what we've been saying anyway It does look like he's signed on to play the rebels character. He voiced in the animated. Show it also seems as the lars will be playing thrown another stars live action shows as well not just soka. Both of those are on their. Think thronged gets his own series. Don't know what do you think about that. That i wanted lars mikkelsen to play live action thrown from the beginning. He's got he's got the look. I think it would be hard to switch that over an older. They're on this one because he is going to be significantly older well not significantly years. Maybe you i he he can play it he. He was in one of the episodes of sherlock right. He was in the season for. He was one of the Season three excuse me season three. He was the primary bag. Yeah and he was like yeah. He was fantastic. Amazing like i. I have more experience with him as a voice actor playing Animated thron but seeing him in sherlock even his mannerisms in that would fit thrown. I mean that whole character even in sherlock feels a lot like throng but a little. Bit more twisted. Yeah but yeah. No i get real coming from. I think he is going to play an amazing live action on them very excited that they're going to go with that direction. Because i just don't think you can play you. Have anyone else play thrown at this point in nail the character..

"Do you think you can jump in on the asuka series. I if you're like Savannah and not having not have seen all star wars rebels. Do you think you can pick it up. I thought about that a little bit and frankly my initial reaction would be no. I feel like you're going to have to watch rebels to understand what's going on or at least like the last season but you can't really watch last season that washington rarest So it almost seems like you're forced to but they may be able to handle it in a way where they give you enough information as you're going along for you too so follow this series. Because i guarantee you there are people who are gonna watch haven't seen rebels and they're not gonna want to go back and watch rebel so i'm sure the handle it in a good way but i think it would help a lot if you went and watch rebels again. And it's on disney. Plus it's right there. Just go watch you know. I think that they're assuming that if you clone worth and you love the character. Soka in are cited for this series. They're assuming if you enjoyed her character and clone wars than you would have watched rebels because she's in rebels so they're probably just going to be going along with the story that they've already planned out We are not indifferent.

Train Your Brain To Find Opportunities During A Crisis
"Welcome to the Mater Hell, show this fitness nutrition expert, Shawn Stevenson and I'm so grateful to you today. We've got a very popular episode nine up today with him. Talking about how we can make the most of the situation that we find our society and right now you know with twenty twenty. It seems like twenty twenty came along and through our lives into a blender, but today we're GonNa talk about how we can make it into a delicious smoothie. You know what I mean and right now here in the state of California that just moved to. We haven't even been here full year yet. Society is re shut down there and just shut it down, opened it little bit open the crack and they shut it back down and right now for the upcoming semester children are you back to school we've got millions of people who are unemployed. Countless businesses are closed and this is a very trying time and I truly want everybody to understand that we have not seen the fallout. Fallout yet. The true fallout and I WANNA help to make sure that as many people as possible are in a position to overcome this, because our mental health is going to be stressed, our financial health physical health are relationships, but we can come out better Albert Einstein said that in the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity, and we have to shift our mindset to that, though because when things are going bad, we're faced with. especially uncertainty, we tend to go to the dark side. Are This is how? An CONSI- Walker you know went down the wrong path it was it was presented with You know those those trying times and trying opportunities you know so shout out to Darth vader shadow to space balls IRA out. They get credit. one of the greatest movie parodies of all time all right instead of Chewbacca, the wookey. They had BARF play by John. Candy. Alright a big shot to them. But again in the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity. We have to shift our mindset there and this has been a trying time for many. But I believe that we are strong I believe that we are capable and I believe that this is a time in history that is offering a great reset. It's offering an opportunity for humanity elevate. It makes me think of you know the original Nintendo the original Nintendo. The game console itself had two buttons. One was a power button in one was a reset button. First of all, why don't if I want to reset? Push the power button often. Turn it back on again. They're like no. You're going to need this reset button. The reset says. I'm playing the game. Maybe I made a mistake maybe i. was exposed to clinch. May. Be I WANNA do something different, but the reset says I'm going to keep playing. is going to tap this real. Quick I'm GONNA keep playing. And I think their life right now is a big reset button that is getting pushed whether we like it or not, and so we need to embrace it because it's happening, you know fighting against what is is what leads to allow to suffering. But the thing is we don't have to. We don't have to be content about it. We need to accept it realize what's happening. Realize what is and then put in place an intelligent. Plan of action which starts from the inside. Truly, all changes in inside game and really getting our mindset right and taking control of our own personal. Economy inside of our minds are personal health and wellness inside of our minds, so we can take that and spread that out to our family and our communities so very excited about this episode in as I mentioned. This is my first full summer here in California I grew up the Mid West S. T.. L.! Right in here in California is, it's amazing. The consistency in the weather, but something that I've noticed is very different from the Midwest Summers. Is that here in California you got the heat he might be to say is nine hundred ninety five outside. And If, there's a piece of shea going. Get into the shade in this cooler cycle is nice shadier. In Saint, Louis, it doesn't work that way. Would you say if it's ninety ninety five and Saint Louis? And you see a little piece of shade going. Get some of their shade, but. He's like what do you think you're going? We have this little extended arm, cold humidity, and it'll grab your by your collar. I make your holiday dollar humidity. It doesn't feel good. You know so. It's like I've got a true experience now of going into the shade and me like Oh. This is nice, nice shade. But Saint Louis doesn't work that way shot to all my friends and family in Saint Louis, everybody listening in Saint Louis I love you guys so much.

Go into the next room she goes. We're we're doing that. It's the that's the whole thing so I hope you are finding ways to switch up your routine because I need to get out of. The House is Weird in California. Because it's very cloudy and kind of colder and It was nice for a couple of days. I did some hikes. That was cool. I felt like everything was normal to degree But when it gets kind of cold and dreary it's it's really hard to get motivated to do stuff I keep talking about this Trivia Book that I WanNa right and I should have the thing done by now I only have about. I think eleven or twelve stories out of about fifty stories that I wanNa tell in this book written down and I could easily if I just focused on it. Get the entire thing done which I wanted to do over like the next nine months. I could do it in one month so I really need to jump start myself and right the rest of this book if you're interested in what it's about it's going to be kind of a trivia memoir where I talk about hosting Trivia very interesting scenarios and then I tell a story and Then there's a little quiz based on stuff that happened in the story afterwards so for example one time. I met Harrison Ford Trivia Party. I tell that story and then I have a quiz on Harrison Ford related stuff and then some Harrison Ford inspired trivia team names in different things like that so it's kind of like a travel book. It'd be a bookie by it like an airport and be like. Oh this'll be cool for the plane ride. I could do some trivia. I read some stories from this guy. And hopefully it's a ton of fun and I tell some shark NATO stories in there Some different celebrity encounters. I'm trying to break up the book into different sections. So it's like celebrity encounters a family type stories like growing up family based Trivia Steph Different travelling to different cities so like Tennessee Chattanooga Related Trivia so. I tell a story about doing this show there and then go into Trivia about it etc etc. But I think it'll be cool. It'll be about ten sections of probably five stories on each section each and there should be at least five hundred. Trivia questions in there for you guys to play along with two and hopefully this is pretty cool little calling card for me to give people as an e book or to sign copies of a physical book and get out there and do a little.
