America's Political Left Explodes After Kyle Rittenhouse Acquitted

"A moment. Of course, the other big breaking story that happened after we left you Friday, Kyle rittenhouse found not guilty on all counts. And again, the beast is wounded. If you're a new listener, I call the media, I call academics. I call Hollywood. I call the I call the big media machine, the Democrats. I call them the beast. And sometimes the beast gets injured and the beast houses in protest because the race baders over on MSNBC didn't like the outcome. They had a very predictable response. Here's one of their stars at MSNBC, despicable, despicable response by a woman named Tiffany cross. Ellie, I'm disgusted at what I'm saying. It's not just this trial. It's other trials, but this in particular, the fact that white supremacists roam the halls of Congress freely and celebrate this little murderous white supremacist and the fact that he gets to walk the streets freely, it lets you know these people have access to instituting laws. They represent legislative branch of this country. What are we to make of that? She's given a camera and a microphone and a platform to be on national television, and she spews that kind of bile of just just garbage. That little white supremacist are you kidding me? And it got even worse, consider her guest. Ely miss stall. This happened because this is what the white justice system was designed to do, all right? This is not a miscarriage of justice. This is justice working as intended for white people. And the way you know that is because of the judge. The reason why I was able to predict that was because of the judge. The judge was in the tank from the defendant from the jump. I mean, literally before the trial, he was making motions and making rulings in favor of rittenhouse. He continued that bias throughout the trial. That's without even getting into his maga ring tones without even getting into his off color Asian jokes. Not even getting into all of that, his actual decision making favored the defendant the entire time. By you. I can't even get angry at this anymore. I feel nothing but pity for these pathetic, pathetic people. I honest to goodness. I do. I feel sorry for them. You know, if a jury verdict came down, and the shoe was on the other foot, and it was a black kid. Accused or on trial for shooting white people. Oh my gosh. If anybody on Fox News or newsmax or what America news or the Salem radio network or sale of news channel, dared to say one tenth of what those people say about this white kid in Kenosha, all hell would break loose. All hell would break loose. These people are to be pitied,

Fires Force the U.S. Forest Service to Close

"For the first time in forty five years the us forest service has closed the boundary waters canoe area is wilderness in northern minnesota includes one million acres of lakes and rivers and forests many of which are now on fire. Minnesota public radio's dan crocker. Reports many of the fires here are burning within the boundary waters. But the largest is just south. It's the greenwood fire and it scorched more than thirty square miles of forest and it's forced the evacuation of nearly three hundred households. I met one of those evacuees. Doug landy at a recent public information meeting. He lives in the woods near the tiny town of isabella. That's a summer for mao for watching the forest to get compromised. He says the forest is tinder-dry from extreme drought and unusually hot weather earlier this week. Gusty winds sent the fire roaring through a chain of lakes surrounded by dozens of homes and cabins mike birdman and his wife got a call from the county sheriff telling him their cabin is still standing. But he's afraid at the forest surrounding it will look like a moonscape we're approaching seventy and it's not going to grow back in our lifetime and yeah there's just so much uncertainty it just like a slow motion disaster happening just to the north in the boundary waters wilderness rangers have paddled into warren campers that they have to leave. The original closure order was set to expire today but it since been extended at least another week. That's a big blow for the many businesses that count on these few months to outfit those campers. We have people from all fifty states who come here every summer to experience the boundary waters jason's aboard ski runs the outfitting company in the small town of ely which bills itself as the canoe capital of the world in august. It's usually packed with visitors. Canoe strapped to the tops of their cars. But not now and you know to have sort of this immediate closure and have to tell somebody who's traveled from texas or california and are like standing in front of us ready to go out for a week in the woods that actually everything's changed and your boundary waters vacation is off is really difficult. The forest service is encouraging tourists to canoe and camp in areas outside the wilderness. Ends aboard. Ski is trying to stay positive. But says there's nothing comparable the paddling into the amazing boundary waters itself

Proof of Guilt

"It's time for another installment of sea hunt. It's still alive here on scuba shack radio. In this time we are headed back to season two for episodes. Thirty three titled proof of guilt which premiered exactly sixty two years ago today on august sixteenth. Nineteen fifty-nine in this episode. Mike is in the hawaiian islands where he is working for. A manufacturing company testing out underwater motion picture and television cameras in the opening scene. He is diving with huge film camera. The plankton is up cutting visibility but is also bringing in fish and the man eating sharks we see a number of white tip circling and they're getting closer and closer as mike sees their cold is they're getting too close for comfort so mike decides to head to the shallows when he gets to the pierre he sees a note under water on the slate that says come up. Mike tells us that there is greater threats up there than the sharks when he gets out of the water. Mike is met by lieutenant. Dave cal cal. Coa of the honolulu police department he asks why the new while dave says it wasn't from him. The camera moves to a woman who says it was from her. her name. is sandra otani or sandy. She says she put the no down. There you see. She owns now lua island where she grows. Cultured pearls offshore. Someone is stealing her pearls. And she needs. Mike's mike's help and his cameras to get the evidence that dave needs to arrest them might tell sandy that he won't give her the camera as they only go with him. Sandy smiles until mike's that she wants to go with the cameras that might smooth operator. The scene now shifts to the beach on sandy's island where both sandy and mike are gearing up to assure dive out to the pearl beds. Sandy shows mike the pearl beds in his getting angry underwater as she finds the broken oyster shells as they are walking out of the water. Mike tell sandy that it is the perfect place for scuba. Hit and run. Sandy tells mike that some of the pros have been growing for thirty years. Mike her exactly how they cultivate the pearls. Sandy says that it's a secret that came with her father from japan but since they won't but since she won't tell them the secret should make it up to them with the best dinner he ever had now. The next morning mike is ready to set a trap for the pro robbers. He's hiding in the rocks with a pair of binoculars in his full scuba rig looking for any suspicious activity. He spots a boat but he doesn't see the divers go into the water on the other side of the boat. He does however see their bubbles and heads out with his camera to catch them in the act at the pro beds. Mike hides behind a rock with the cameras. The divers approach as they start to rob the beds. Mike starts to film but he gets careless. He says the sound of the camera alerts. The divers wanted a bad guy circles around in surprises. Mike they get into a fight. The other bad guy grabs the camera and pulls out the film now while the underwater fight is going on. Sandy was watching from the beach and she suspects trouble and his racing to the pro beds with her boat. The bad guys rip mics regulator out of his mouth but as they are scared off by the sound of sandy's boat. Mike is left helpless. Miraculously mike doesn't drown he recovers we see some eagle raising the background as he heads to the surface he's blowing bubbles all the way up we now see the camera resting on the bottom. Mike struggles back on. The boat is gasping for air. A sandy asks him if he is all right in the next scene. Now we see mike lying on a chair. Sandy's giving him not some tea. He says he doesn't want anymore and starts to work on a plan to catch the bad guys lieutenant dave. Sandy says she wants to let them have the pearls. Because they're not worth mike's life. But mike says it's not about the pearls anymore. It's a personal grudge. He needs dave's help to put them on tv now. Mike is going to use the underwater television camera to catch the. The's he shows. Dave how it's going to work as he pans across the island. Just mike points to camera towards dave in. Sandi dave says hey look at the prettiest girl in blue island has sandy strikes. Oppose the camera. And she says she's the only girl on lulu island as mike looks to take off underwater. Sandy gives him a big kiss for luck. And mike says he's never had any better luck back underwater with the tv camera. Mike is waiting for all three villains as they are. Now jumping in the water to steal the pearls but this time one of them has a spear gun. Mike has the tv camera pointed at the pro beds. But there's a problem. The bad guys are coming from the wrong direction and they're not on tv. The ambush mike. Who's only hope is to move maneuver them into the frame of a camera. Chaos prevails as they fight and slash at one. another finally might get them to the pearl beds. The spear gun is fired and strikes the bed. Fortunately sandy is watching and as yells to dave look at this cast off now. The cops are headed to the fight during the fight. Mike's left arm is slashed but he continues fighting pulling a regulator out of one of the bad guys. Mouth just then. He sees the to hawaiian police officers free diving or swimming trucks. And says they look like angels with the odds now even justice prevails and the bad guys lose again in the final scene near back on the shore of an allure island. Mike's arms bandage. Dave asks in the. He needs a ride back to honolulu. Sandy tells dave that mike is going to be on vacation. Dave says the sandy. Nobody likes a cop. Sandy says she will give him the best testimonial but also gives mike. Another big kiss to which mike replies that is the best testimonial in my life. I'm not exactly sure where this episode was filmed for the top side scenes but it sure does look like hawaii however you never know when it comes to television or the movies. The part of sandy was played by nobu mccarthy and kendrick played lieutenant dave calcutta and here's one final interesting tidbit. This episode was remade in the nineteen eighty-seven version of sea hunt and it was titled pearl beds. And just so you know. I'm still trying to get my hands on that. One thousand nine hundred eighty seven series with ron ely. Maybe someday

It's important the word christian is just not important to me. it's fine.

"Bid. Yeah it was it was you. Are you know from day. One square one sinful selfish self seeking and Wrong like you. Also don't know shit like the other part of it and so i think a lot of like my spiritual life to was like getting the correct thinking and thinking that that was wisdom and that would protect me from the pitfalls that non-christians fell into or bad. Christians fell into but ultimately it just it was like a mental cage. Time you know. Both of you have emphasized the importance of relationships individual relationships friendships of sort of breaking out of that. That group mentality. What was being taught to you from place with already kevin. You mentioned that an you caroline especially now at this point in our lives. Because in retrospect what felt like we're going to live together and we're going to partner run the race now looking back on it. It's oh that was the dirty dozen. We did the great escape in like busted out way. Now we have this shared history of like that was Yeah so that is so much the bond that we show but like some of the most significant relationships of our lives obviously came out that time that's caroline met her husband my friend. That's where i met some of my closest friends to this day gang a good stable strong solid base when i first moved out to los angeles and all non never regret any part of that But but yes the i think. Now because that relational proposition so fulfilled by those areas and other areas of our lives. What churches and what's supposed to be is kind of confusing because it's like well. I don't eat more friends in these people are is the idea which i guess it's kind of to do now of like going somewhere every week on like a regular ritual basis is like you has to be worth a lot it can't just be I guess this is nice. Sob now on our thirties. Now and we don't have all the time in the world and like what is actually the value added to my life by this think. Sometimes it's not and sometimes it's not worth it. They're absent safe for me like those friendships especially college and right after and everything Again because whenever. I had an issue or something made me anxious or angry uncomfortable. I always assumed that was my fault and like my own sinfulness or my wrong thinking or whatever rather than churches crazy you know like the culture of this bizarre or like it doesn't make a lot of sense or it doesn't work for me and it was friends who you got to talk to realize like. Oh working for you either..

Because the more time i spent with these women who at first i considered lost you know Maybe relying on substance abuse or having weird bad sex all the time like i thought. Was you know stunting them or making them unhappy. And then obviously over time. I found out that sure. Some people were unhappy but many of them were totally fine and didn't need any didn't need my support In that way and didn't ever want to argue with me about my faith. Like i describe it anytime. Someone founded was a christian for those years like i. I feel like the reaction was. As if i told them i do marathons they like good for you like that. Sounds cool you know just like oh. That sounds nice. You know one of those responses it merits no follow up in marriage. No fault welby with not familiar coordination everything but that like mutual acceptance basically Yeah and so. I learned like oh not only these people find their thriving. They are extremely ethical. There so fucking smart. they're funny they're vibrant. They have really good relationships. Oftentimes they were taking better care of each other than i could and That was kind of like the first big bubble burst of. I thought all christians were like the most moral beings in any situation in you know in in learning you see that's not true and also a lot of people are just fine without jesus and so there has to be another reason beyond desperation rock bottom to come to christ which is like that is. It's like a rough realization. You know and also things. Like oh i thought they had to be really low and messed up to come to god like. That's not cool either. You should feel optional. Especially when you think about the way people describe how they date and sometimes people say i found a person who completes me i was a messed up blah blah outer..

Fifth grade work than did that up until you hear so from that point. I was on the past. Yeah so then. Yeah so so. I would say honestly like in a way keeping me away from public school in a way was right because the friendships and relationships formed during that time would ultimately be the seeds of in some ways Just been exposed to different kinds of empathy where you cannot withstand having a belief system that excludes them in a way and being close with them.

"So home schooling in texas as a young Conservative evangelical boy race with it in the family from the parents who seem to still have sort a nominal faith that takes less of a president than political ideology. Which now is the tales all time in the country but at the time he was very important that we were home schooled and we were given the choice that we could go to public school whenever we wanted to so me and my two siblings all did it different discrete times. We did not go in the same grade so my brothers starting high school. My sister in middle school. I did the last half of high school but until then it was all christian media stuff. Did your parents say like if you go to public school like they are. They're going to attack your faith or like no you stay home. You know you'll learn the right ways you won't be adopted. It was so much less about faith. Stuff i think then it was like they're gonna teach them about the environment in trouble. School was really on that. Be gay kids and we don't want you to talk to them. It was so not that it was. More just generalize the education system so whack and just public school just public anything up. Any public service is fundamentally broken. So we are opting out of them because we have the privilege to sell so many asks to the up using a becotide curriculum or like the christian school curriculum beca. It was exactly beckett. It was exactly bob jones university on them. Which at the time was like a. Who's like you had to get a like a cable top box for it. And it was being done.

Isn't that good anyway. I couldn't get over that stuff. My that's a very interesting. I did not know that bob jones could afford to throw a satellite space. Another silicon valley ended is right. You i just. I just remember my mom or my dad one of them installing our backyard grandparents backyard close to us and so they got the set top box. And then i think we from what i remember and i could be getting details of trump from what i remember. They had the setup box and we would either do classes over there or recorded a vhs. Take all like maybe it was like covenant is pre installed or see my grandmother weirdly and budgets would send point to those things just like okay. Here we go you tuned in so we did you.

I really thrived at school and it was kind of small and even though it was a private school it wasn't like a you know gossip girl private school you know like it wasn't a lot of wealthy people. It was pretty tiny fact. The school has completely died out at this point because it was so small keep people enrolling But the reviving angeles. I gossip girl at and yeah it was school. And i think that's also where we learned creationism as a literal scientific fact from my biology teacher. Who went to ucla and looking back down there and we also had chapel every wednesday and we had bible class. That was one of our classes that we had to take every year So because of that. I didn't really get involved in church like outside of school because i felt like my life youth group. Yes is just a lot of that in house like busy using volleyball. I had a job in things like that. Work in next five in the office And i just felt like it would be too much and thankfully. My parents didn't really pushed me to go to church. Go to youth group beyond that as well. We did have a Like our own neighborhood. Local church that we went to growing up very sporadic camin so sporadically And i like dutch reformed. I know that the pastor was died and that was kind of like his thing embiid. That was a super mild sweet. You know like just general churchill was it was chill. It made almost no impression on me so social remembering nothing about chill concerted church knowing i know trauma nor encouragement as you are exactly gross. No change beautiful but Yeah in school you know. I took my stays pretty seriously as much as i could. I was beating myself up for not having like a consistent morning devote time stupid to god i mean this will be the pattern but Yeah was was pretty into that and Yeah in in. I've always had you know. A personal spiritual connection to god and his to figure that out in schooling. And i think at that time we'll see i was trying to do it like the correct way. A how rooms teaching me and so that was kind of my focus in That by the time. I was finishing high school senior year. I don't think i would've called this at the time but looking back i was just burnt out on church and on all that teaching and learning the same same stuff. All the time The time. I thought that i was like lukewarm. Apathetic you know like on cruise control of my face and i judge myself for that. I thought that was wrong. But i also didn't have the energy to like change it at all and Going into college. I distinctly remember writing down in a journal like i just hope something happens like with my faith in college in golly. Gee whiz at shirted Saul levi on that cliffhanger.

"ely" Discussed on The Win-Win Effect

"Me and my way of thinking to get what i need from that person to ensure they're going to win. Everyone's got win. But i guess different when it comes to legal field the ear so intuitive like you get in tune with the person that you're talking to very quickly in. It's almost like you get to their needs by a lot. More than just verbal communication a fair songs. But i know that we had a conversation about any guys if you haven't listened to her show when i was a guest on. I think it's coming out in a couple of weeks. Make sure that you time this one comes out. It should be already launched. She asked me some really good questions. And i was able to expose. She was able to expose some things. That and i've been on. Some high level shows like big huge entrepreneurs that didn't even get through those levels and for you to pick up. How intuitive i am. I get a lot of that sometimes and i. Sometimes i shy away from compliments and that doesn't mean a lot to me. I appreciate it That comes from non verbal communication from my older sister to where she was unable to communicate with me verbally. So i picked up on that in a very young age and was able to read people from what they're not telling me and i could sniff out the bullshit pretty quickly pretty quick. I can sense when you're full of crap you know like you don't know what you're talking about. Keep asking those questions where i'm not going to be offensive. I'm still going to get to the coroner route and cut through you so instead way right. Yeah expose you. I'm on a. I was interviewing might diamond And he's Interventionist he's been sober for fifteen years. He was on miami ink new york inc. He knows them. You know obviously great phenomenal people. He's got a show with dave meltzer as well. I'm going to be on bloomberg tv. I was actually a business partner of mine. On on one of the settlements he does. He actually helps people Where they're not going to relapse if they're taking like a pre workout pill you know so our pre workout like what is it called like a shake anyways. He talked about people that people don't put in a work in the time where no one's watching they get exposed and a bright lights and i love the way that he said that. Because it's true. How much do you see that in your profession. Oh yeah yeah quite a bit. it's you know it to me. It's a very simple thing to live by my values but it wasn't always so clear that our world is so loud and so busy. It's like you said earlier. People don't really sit down and reflect that often about who they are and when you don't know who you are you don't know what you want if you don't know what you want you don't know in what direction ahead so it's just so absolutely crucial to get down to what you want your life to look like and what. What is most important to you because until you do. You can't reach the level of satisfaction in your life that you can win when you're right on track so when you pick up on something like that when you're communicating with someone and they're not able to. I guess you would say have that way of understanding. How do you go about handling that with them. It's a multifaceted process..

It's the Little Things

"For want of a nail, the shoe was lost for want of a shoe. The horse was lost for want of a horse. The rider was lost for want of a writer the message was lost for want of the message the battle was lost for want of a battle, the kingdom was lost. Small things can have reverberating effects on history both good and bad. In fourteen fifty three, the great walled city of Constantinople fell it had withstood sieges for eleven hundred years. It had held off fire from the then state of the art cannons for weeks. The Byzantine said even Ford soldiers trying to tunnel under the wall autumn Turks were finally able to overrun the great city because someone left the door open. One of the many gates in the fourteen miles of wall had been left open during the night and the Ottomans flooded in. Killing Constantine the eleventh in the battle and bringing an end to the eastern Roman Empire. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. It was a freezing Christmas night in Trenton. New Jersey during the revolutionary war. The English Colonel Johann Gottlieb Rall. Commander. Of a mercenary infantry regiment of fourteen hundred has seen soldiers from Germany sat down to a good supper and an evening of entertainment. He and his men were celebrating their recent victories over George Washington's volunteer army, and of course, the Christmas holiday. Safe from the bitter cold and the pelting sleet inside a wealthy merchants home that they had commandeered. They relaxed safe in the assumption that no one in their right mind would possibly try to cross the Delaware River at night in a blinding winter storm. Someone challenged role to a game of chess, and before long he was deep in tactics and strategy. There was a knock at the door. And exhausted young. Messenger boy came in bearing a note from loyalist farmer. It's important to remember that about a third of colonists still consider themselves to be British and didn't want the revolution. Raw paid the boy little notice took the note and put it in his coat pocket without opening it. That pocketed piece of paper would cost him and the war effort nearly. Two hours earlier and ten miles away. Washington's men had begun being ferried across the icy Delaware. River. It took over ten hours to get all twenty four hundred men over to the New Jersey side. The conditions were so adverse five men froze to death. Then began the arduous march to Trenton in the dark. The plan had been to attack the town from all sides before dawn, but the troops didn't arrive until eight am. During the attack which lasted only an hour forty of the German. Henson's were killed and the remaining thousand surrendered. Colonel was mortally wounded. When his body was found the unopened note warning of Washington's crossing was still in his pocket. If role had read it, he would surely have had his gross of professional soldiers prepared. He allowed his pride and the weather to lull him into thinking his enemy was not a threat. Had he won the battle he may well have killed George Washington James Madison James Monroe John Marshall Aaron Burr and Andrew. Hamilton The. Second, most common premise in alternate history circles behind what if Germany won World War Two is what if the south one the American civil war? Two pieces of paper dropped in a farmer's field almost brought that about. Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Whose statue in the middle of my hometown of Richmond, Virginia has recently been given the historical context. It's so sorely needed. In the form of tons of. Graffiti. Issued Special Order one ninety one during the Maryland campaign before the Battle of Antietam. In the order lead divided his army, delineating the routes and roads to be taken and the timing for the units to reconvene. Adjutant Robert H Chilton penned copies of the letter endorsed them in Lee's name. Staff. Officers distributed the copies to various confederate generals. General Thomas Stonewall Jackson in turn copied the document for one of his subordinates, major general, D H Hill who was to exercise independent command as the rearguard. A Union soldier Corporal Barton W Mitchell of the twenty seven. Th Indiana volunteers found two pieces of paper bundled with three cigars as he marched across a farm in Maryland an area recently vacated by Hill and his men after they had camped there. The order provided the Union army with valuable information, concerning the army of Northern Virginia's movements and campaign plans. Upon receiving lease lost order. Major General George McClellan leading the Union army of the Potomac proclaimed. Here is a piece of paper with which if I cannot whip Bob Ely, I will be willing to go home. He immediately moved his army in hopes of foiling lease battle plans. When Lee heard a copy of special order one, ninety, one was missing he. He knew his scattered army was vulnerable and rushed to reunite his units Antietam Creek near Sharp's Berg. Lee's troops arrived tired hungry and many were sick. The Battle of Antietam, would go down as the bloodiest battle of the American civil war with casualties recorded as twenty, three, thousand dead wounded, which was usually as good as dead or unaccounted for over the course of the half day battle. That's nearly two thousand soldiers in our one every two seconds. When night fell both sides ceased fire together, their dead and wounded. The next day Lee began the painstaking job of moving his ravage troops back Virginia. Here, some scholars argue another solitary decision had far reaching consequences. Despite having the advantage. McClellan. Allowed Lee to retreat without resistance. From his point of view, he'd accomplished his mission by forcing Lee's troops from Maryland and preventing confederate win on union soil. President, Lincoln however thought McClellan missed a great opportunity to potentially end the war three years earlier than it ultimately would.

Ely Parker The Commissioner of Indian Affairs

"Hello and welcome to era KOI history and legends. I'm Andrew. And I am Caleb, and welcome back to our third installment on Ellie Parker. In May of eighteen, sixty, five, ely parker returned to Washington. DC, and he and grant met with the president again. President Johnson this time Parker was still very angry about the death of Lincoln and is said to have said at a military parade. He white men are Christians, and you may forgive murder. The I'm of a race never forgives the murder of a friend which I find this quote kind of interesting because he was a Christian. He his father was a preacher, and he was a member of a of an Anglican church later in his life. So that I think it's the point is getting across that he really harbored some bitterness towards the the confederates. If you remember from our. Our last episode couple of weeks before this when Abraham Lincoln is talking to him on how he wants to help his people think Parker was really excited to have a president that actually cared about the Indians, and I think he believed honesty when he said that this must have been a you know on top of him considering Abraham Lincoln a friend, but also all of a sudden. His plans for the future for his people have just been crushed with the death of Abraham Lincoln, and we don't know what would have been head Lincoln been able to finish his second term. Lincoln definitely had some very. Questionable tactics dealing with a Western tribes during the civil war. He or some people to do some some bad stuff that being said I think that Lincoln really did have an appreciation for the the Iroquois nations, and really did want to to help them in the following months Parker remained at grant side, he helped shield him from the the masses for a word. We would use today. The Paparazzi the general was the hero of the war. He's the one that got lead to surrender. Everywhere. He went. People mobbed him. They literally had to beat people away when grant was trying to get some sleep on a train. People were breaking windows. Just try to get in and shake his hand. They said the grants hand was. Crippled because so many people wanted to shake in talk to them as they toured the North Grant, and his family came to Niagara Falls to rest and recuperate and Parker said I'll take your kids, and which is always great when somebody offers to do that, he just takes the kids and take some to the tunnel under reservation for some days to stay at his sister's house. In the fall of that year he was appointed to a commission to serve on a board to help with negotiating with a dozen or so native American nations that adjoined the confederates. We even have a chance to talk about this, but there were all these indigenous nations in the south. Many of them head slaves as well, and they were really sympathetic to the southern 'cause they were intertwined. and politically so here's a little history tidbit fact for Caleb. Do you know who the last general to surrender in the confederacy was? No idea neither did I, but I put it in the notes so I would remember. He was a Cherokee brigadier general named stand. Wadey must be the southward a little more lenient with their commissions. Yeah really, but he he commanded hundreds of troops and lead people around on a wild goose chase, refusing to surrender, even after the confederacy had surrendered, but like this is June twenty third. This is a full two or three months after a everything has wound down, it also kind of sets the stage for you know because we all know about like the the Indian wars in. In the eighteen eighties and stuff like that in the old western kind of see how a Lotta that this conflict never really ended this Cherokee general with America like eventually make some sort of peace, but you can tell it. It's GONNA be a shallow peace, and that will be trouble for the next several decades in eighteen, sixty, six one of grant's top officers colonel, bowers. was killed tragically by train, and why it's so tragic is he was a close friend of Parker in grand. You know he's one of the general. Staff and they were all on a train and grant got on the train and realized he left something back at the hotel. Something completely, not important handkerchief a book, a letter from his mom something like that. and. He just said Oh darn. I accidentally left that back there. Oh well. And bowers without saying anything to grant slipped away, and he was gonNA. Run back and grab it. Is. He was trying to be a good a good friend and a good underlying to the general in doing so he ended up. If you can picture, all these train tracks with all the trains going every which way he got trapped in between trains going different directions than he was killed crushed. So grant talks to this man a couple of minutes before, and then you know, he slips away. Grant never told him to go back and get it, and then people say a man was killed on tracks. He says Oh. That's terrible, and then it comes in that. It was his friend. It had fought with him through the whole civil war, and he was dead, just like that grant was so depressed that he told Parker that he was not going to be able to attend the funeral. Lots of people say things like that, and then the funeral date comes and guess who is there. A Grant Parker and all the staff were there for Colonel Bowers and his family

"Hello and welcome to Iroquois history and legends. I'm Caleb. I am Andrew we are continuing with our series on the lustrous Mr L. E. S. Parker last episode we talked about his early life is education his diplomacy with the United States and his job as a civil engineer, and where he finds himself, now is in between jobs, and at the brink of the civil war in the United States breaking out, and I'm GonNa sum this up. Up What had happened was we saw all these native American peoples being removed from their land and forced to move west across the Mississippi and into the Oklahoma territory with all these native peoples depopulated from the eastern United States that left all kinds of area that opened up for agriculture and farming, and this led to more tension between the northern and southern states, because you had people joining to rush into the southern and western states. And, they wanted to make sure that slavery was instituted these places because then they could keep their balance of power higher in the US Congress were they could get more senators or members of the House of Representatives to make policies that would guarantee the rights of the southern territories and states, so that's where we find ourselves in and states are rushing around to be declared slave or free, and then a Abraham Lincoln gets elected president, and all heck breaks loose now you may think hey, Parker. He became a captain in the New York. State militia right so he's probably getting ready for war to. But no, he wasn't called upon for his services in engineering in the military or anything so after he finished his contracts in. Illinois he moved back to the tunnel, Wanda reservation and began farming. He quickly became very bored Andrew farming was not the life for a man like him. Many of the Seneca were gearing up for war, looking to join the United States Army Parker went and spoke to his father. Who as you recall from last episode was a veteran from the war of eighteen twelve, and he received his blessing to take up the war, Pat, but Parker. He wasn't. GonNa go as grunt. He wanted to go as a commission soldier. You'd already been. been a captain in the New York militia, so he asked the governor of New York for a commission like a real commission is apparently the militia commissions didn't really count the governor of New York declined so then what did he do when things fail in New York do what everybody else does. Go to a different state. I'm just kidding, but he did. bypass New York state and try to go directly to the federal government. You know. He had some friends in high places in Washington at this point, so he said Hey. Captain in the New York State militia civil engineer. How about a commission? declined. He got a letter from the Secretary of war Edwin Stanton. Quote. Parker this is a quarrel between white men, in which you Indians are not concerned, unquote. Another federal official that he wrote to told him quote. Unquote and I'm sure. They said it just as condescendingly. Some people may have made departure that his lack of US citizenship. Maybe what's holding him back from getting this commission? Because this is the same time that we see, he actually applied for citizenship. Oh, how'd that work out for him? Mile had a lot like everything else to the government. He was turned it down again. So from eighteen, sixty, one to eighteen, sixty two, he worked on his farm, and he also worked for the Indians on the reservation. He penned one letter to an old militia General John Martindale where he jokes about being a bad farmer and eating a wife, he asked the general quote. If, he knew any strong, healthy, double breasted woman that would want to be a farmer's wife. Can you say that again? That strong. HOW DOUBLE BREASTED WOMAN! So I thought you said? Did you think double breasted? Okay then we're just. This is a family home to show after all so. We'll just leave it at that. I don't know it seems like pretty good things to look for in a woman. Was His. With a lot of single I'm. You were saying. Parker has been farming for about two years now any starting to think that he's never gonNA. Get his chance. But he did still have a few friends looking out for me and you. And they were a couple of friends that were becoming pretty influential in the war, and Parker didn't even think the contact them. One of them was the jeweler in Gallina, and the other was the grocer. They are now being known as General John. Smith and General Ulysses S grant. They actually said to themselves. You know who we could use right now is parker. Parker was joined to the General Staff with the rank of captain in May twenty, fifth, eighteen, sixty three, but you'll never guess Andrew. He found another complication and this one is coming from a different. Place than you would think. If you remember Parker was made a what. Saito in say tim was a life appointment. Holding has shown checks and balances aspect of the government. Say Chimps were the political leaders. And they could not go to war right? You would have a war chief appointed, and you would have your say. And you'll have your clan. Mothers Each end so now he wants to go to war, but he's a saint shown so Ariza. Wait a minute. Can you legally legally from the? WHO NEEDS schone standpoint? Can you legally go to war? So a meeting was held, and they decided that sense he would be a captain fighting in the war of the whites. You would not be violating the checks and balances protocol.

You know who we could use right now is parker. Parker was joined to the General Staff with the rank of captain in May twenty, fifth, eighteen, sixty three, but you'll never guess Andrew.

How the Federal Reserve’s “discount window” works

"I'm thinking the best way for us to frame things today. When just how different things are has now? Become so clear is do what we've done a couple of times. The past couple of weeks macro micro big picture to actual people in an economy that is coming to a very sudden stop. You don't get much more big picture of course than the Federal Reserve on a Sunday afternoon pulling out. Maybe not all but certainly a whole lot of the stops that had has that huge cut in their short-term interest rate that you have heard about Shirley and other big bond buying program echoes of the financial crisis to be sure also a cut in something called the discount rate short-term emergency loans dispensed through what is known as the discount window sounds a tad. We D I know but in reality it is so big picture because what we're talking about here is the Fed making some really big moves to keep credit flowing to households and businesses marketplace's. Amy Scott gets us going with what the discount window is and why it is so important in a crisis. Think of the discount window as a shot of. Wd Forty if advanced is short on cash to cover customer withdrawals or make loans it can borrow money short-term directly from the Fed in effect it's kind of keeping the finances lubricated during a stressful time banking consultant. Burt Ely says the problem is banks are reluctant to reach for the Kellyanne. Borrowing from the Fed is usually more expensive than borrowing from other banks and Joe Gagnon with the Peterson Institute for International Economics says that looks bad. I mean if a bank has to pay a higher rate to get credit it's usually because other banks are leery of landing to it so it looks like it might be in trouble. The Fed is trying to reduce that stigma by slashing the discount rate and by urging banks to use it and not add. Mahdi teaches finance and economics at Stanford. If they say well please come. Please come which they also did during the financial crisis. Then it's like everybody's doing it and it's okay and it's legitimate. It could help the J. P. Morgan Chase recently said it plans to use the discount window to help break that stigma. Gerard Cassidy an analyst with RBC capital markets says bank balance sheets are really strong right now partly because of nervous customers. There's been an influx of deposits for the safety of the FDIC deposit insurance. So I don't think the banks are going to be forced to go to the discount window but he says better to get them comfortable with the idea before. There's a real

Critics Say Proposed Copper Mine In Minnesota Threatens Pristine Water

"Plan to dig a mine in Minnesota has led to a fight over clean water. A company is seeking to build an underground copper mine just a couple of miles from the Boundary Waters Canoe who area wilderness. That is a stretch of federally protected. Lakes and rivers along the Canadian border. Here's Minnesota public radio's Dan Crocker. The snow is at least three feet deep today outside Jason Zabriskie's cabin near the town of Ille- Minnesota. He straps on a pair of snowshoes and trump's through the woods to White Iron Lake th really beautiful day The snow on the lake really sparkles. This spot is just four miles upstream from the boundary waters. Where's the voice key? First canoed sued more than twenty years ago he says he feels a deep personal connection to the Pristine Lakes and rocky shorelines and now owns a canoe outfitting business here and all that that relates to our clean water and are healthy forests. That are unlike any place else in Minnesota or the world where we're you can paddle along and dip your cup in the lake and drink shrink from the lake. But he fears that both his business and the wilderness itself are retin by the proposed mind. Zagorski insists. This isn't your typical Nimby or not in my backyard story. The boundary waters is one of the most visited wilderness areas in the country entry. He says it's everyone's backyard. I just did the tally in last summer alone. We had guests from forty eight different states plus plus thirteen foreign countries. I hop in a truck with Julie Padilla from twin medals Minnesota the company behind the proposed. Mine we bounce over rocky dirt roads to get to the place where the company plans to tunnel deep underground for copper nickel and precious metals. It's outside the boundary waters but right on the shore of a huge lake that flows into it. We've been asked this question. Why can't you just go mind somewhere else? Well we can't move deposit. This is where the resource is. This is the kind of mining though that has left a legacy of water pollution in some Western states but Padilla says twin metals. Planning a modern mind that will protect the boundary waters. She insists there's a strict process in place to evaluate the proposal. And if it doesn't pass muster it won't go forward but I think we have an opportunity here to do. Yeah well here and do it in the same way that we've done with our iron mining over the last hundred years while northeastern Minnesota is canoe country it's also mining in country. There are fourth generation miners. Here who still work in huge open. Pit Iron ore mines. Mining is our past present future. That's Republican Congressman Impeach stabber speaking at a recent rally generations of minor. See on the iron range have made a great living helped us win world wars stabber and other reminding supporters here argue that twin medals and other companies exploring nearby could create another mining. Boom this time based on copper Chuck Novak is the Mayor of Ely. Really the town's last iron ore mine closed in the nineteen sixties. Don't want the child to die. We need good paying jobs. People get good disposable income that they can go out and spend money Indian town improve the economy but as mining's economic impact has waned the tourism and outdoor recreation economy has boomed hate a Barrett owns another canoe outfitting fitting business in. If anything happened that polluted the water to the degree that copper mining has shown it does. There's no filter manufactured that I could filter filter the water and let my clients drink. Twin metal still faces multiple lawsuits and regulatory hurdles and his years away from possibly opening. But it's already created a bitter hitter. Divide over which of these treasures best to capitalize on the or underground or the natural beauty above it for N._p._R.. News I'm Dan Crocker in Ely Minnesota.

"Jump into day to today's topic. which is what is permaculture? Why should we care before we jump into that? Just go quick quick housekeeping thing. I just wanted to give you guys a heads up That over the month of January maybe February as well Shows might be coming out a little bit slower lower than normal. I'm Kinda taking things a little slower Kind of did that. In December as well did some recap shows Did some throwback shows and through January in February life has gotten crazy busy for myself with the household and kind of as I talk about here on the show you know. Life is more important than our yard work right right so in that same thread You know have to make some priorities right now just for the sake of my own energy so I hope you guys don't mind but the shows will be coming out a little a little bit less frequently over the next couple of weeks or so so I just wanted to give you a heads up so it's not taking by surprise if you're wondering there's something wrong with the show or anything and likewise with the family. Nothing's wrong basically. I just took on took on more than I can chew with some house projects and that sort of thing work is kind of crazy as well so life. Life is kind of crazy We're still not still not sleeping through the night with our little guys We've had some sicknesses. Go through the family. That's been keeping even some kid who is up as well as our young Guy He's still not sleeping through the night so we're quite tired on top of that too We decided to tackle a bathroom remodel. Our math master bathroom desperately needed some remodeling and so we ripped it down basically to the studs To Redo it and it's of course quite a bit of work to do so and of course like any project we've run into a couple speed bumps that sort of thing nothing nothing. We can't tackle but it is taking longer than expected much of my free time as well so You know I just have to make some priority calls here so unfortunately guys the show is going to slow down for a little bit Luckily though this is a little bit of a quieter season and that's not to say that this show is not important to me. The show is very important to me. I hope it is important to you as well. And so We'll be getting back up to speed very soon but I wanted to just let you know that You know I will. Beginning shows up maybe every other week for the next two weeks or few weeks or so and Yeah wanted to give you a heads up there so I'm super excited though. Talk about today's topic. which is what is permaculture? And why should we care. So if you guys don't know I haven't really talked about a whole on the show but I am very passionate about this thing called permaculture. Maybe you've heard of it. Maybe you haven't maybe already have some conceptions of it. It's actually kind of a polarizing word for some people blue heard it I'll be flat. Honest I love permaculture permaculture. Well a lot of people have different definitions of it. A lot of people who haven't haven't really dove deep into the subject. Also have these sometimes misconceptions about it to essentially what permaculture is again the definition intimate but as a whole this is kind of this. The synthesis of it is this design. Concept is designed process or design sciences. What some people call it As a way of perceiving things specifically with the focus of food production is kind of where it originated but it's a mindset a design process that really encompasses everything. It's so it's a way to look at things to minimize inputs and maximize yield in a way that takes care of the world around us. Takes Care of ourselves to that so it's really been applied now to not only agriculture Home setting but also community design fine community resilience business design. That's actually where a lot of what I've designed my business around this concept of permaculture as well so I've tried to design signed my business in a way that applies permaculture concepts to my business so kind of funky there right so let's get into what it is and really. This is going to be kind of a two part series today. I'm GonNa Talk to you mostly about defining this concept what is permaculture rate. And why why should you even care. Why should you keep at this episode going? And why shouldn't you just turn it off. So I really want to get to the synthesis of what it is and how it can help us and then in next episode road. I'll go more deeply into really why it matters to you. And how you can apply it to your life into your landscape more specifically and and how this this permaculture concept can really change your life in a way of how you approach things and how you approach your yard your life. That sort of thing sounds kind of lofty so I wanNA make it more granular in next episode this episode we will be a little bit in the loft definition stuff but of course I don't WanNa make it boring at the same time so I try and make it as interesting as possible possible. Provide you some examples that sort of thing and Let's just dive right in so this concept of permaculture just really really short history is is is a there's two founders of the permaculture movement this dude named Bill Mollison and his dude named David Home Grin there to Australian guys they worked together at a the university and basically they started to come across all these. The local indigenous aborigine populations some of the tactics they use to address the climate that they lived in To address you know resilience and that sort of thing and all these other resilient agricultural tro design concepts and processes and tools that were being used across various geographies across the world. They started to pull that together into this. This more more synthesized concept which they called permaculture abbreviation of two two different terms permanent culture an permanent agriculture so the first application of course was this permanent agriculture thing so a more resilient agriculture design but it quickly became realized that it was more broadly applied. If you have if you WANNA have permanent permanent agriculture systems you have to have permanent cultural systems as well and so it came to be more more applied to this just general overview of how to live basically in a more resilient way that addresses some of the major questions of our our day this was back in the nineteen seventies and it's certainly true today in the the twenty twenties right and of shortening Availability ability of resources or a restricted availability of resources whether it be water oil Food all sorts of things minerals right. It's how do we address those those massive questions on a global scale but also apply it to be more resilient at a community in personal skills while so that's kind of the history of it so they came up with these this kind of overlap laying concepts And basically just published it to the world and and it became this kind of growing growing movement across the world so now there's kernels of permaculture practice communities across the world in almost Burma every geography with actual practical applicable systems growing food or resilience in pretty much any climate. You can imagine so it's pretty cool stuff And so so it's really really like that's kind of why it's hard to define actually because it's this all encompassing processor concept with a bunch of different tools in applications just depending on your geography or climate conditions and that sort of thing or what you're using it for whether it's agriculture on a large scale or home setting or community designed developed develop a resilient community or business designed to develop a resilient business. All of those things take different tools and tactics but they have the same general mindset if if that makes sense okay so in my own words. Well let's let's talk about the founders words I I guess all right so so bill mollison one of the main you know the two founders He calls permaculture is such permaculture permaculture is a philosophy of working with rather than against nature of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted in in thoughtless labor and of looking at plants and animals in all their functions rather than treating any area as a single product system. Okay that's a mouthful fool so I'm just GonNa go through it again and then Kinda tease apart would in my own thoughts. What he's trying to save? permaculture is a philosophy of working with rather than against nature of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted and thoughtless labor and looking at plants and animals in all all their functions rather than treating any area as a single product system. So let's take for example maybe instead of using my words I'll just use an example so let's take the example of the conventional lawn landscape since as what we talk about a lot on the show here right is is our landscapes right so if we think about our or yard the grassy lawn so protracted and thoughtless labor is basically this launch system. Right we have it's really an artificial system usually compacted active soil with low fertility which grass does not like we want to grow grass there right so we we grow this grass. We treat it with chemicals to make it Like with Weedon feed right so we want to get rid of the CRABGRASS. We want to get rid of the DANDELIONS and the clover we I mean most people I- I extract myself itself from this group of we So that's generally the thought right is is to have just your one species of let's say bluegrass or being Bermuda aggressor whatever so you cover it with Weeden feed you. Get rid of the plants. You don't want you put crabgrass preventer on it right and then also you treat for grubs right you don't want grubs grubbs eaten those routes so basically you have this really synthetic system. That's highly has lots of inputs. And then of course. You have to irrigate right to keep it. Keep it watered watered when it's dry and then you have to fertilize it. Because there's low fertility in the soil and then you have to mow it right because you just put fertilizer on it so it's growing faster and you just watered it so it's growing growing faster rate but it's not brown at least right so So that's a protracted and thoughtless labor system right so permaculture says okay what what are the issues. What are the the high input pieces of this? And how can it may be different right. And so likewise looking at plants and animals in all their functions rather rather than treating any areas a single product system. So if you think about the lawn is a very specific single product system. You're looking at one species of grass or maybe a blend of just a couple species species of grass. And you just want that you don't look at it as a holistic process you look at those grubs as a pest right as opposed to maybe they're eating again grubs are generally really eating the the The rotting or injured roots of the grass plants. That are struggling. Because they're in a low fertility system. So maybe if you improved proved fertility the system. It would help you know reduce your inputs of fertilizers and GRUB preventer stuff because then the GRUBS wouldn't be there is in high numbers numbers because the grass is healthier that will make sense. And then you wouldn't have moles come to eat grubs for example and so seeing as a holistic system and and you know accepting thing that some of those those grubs are going to be there accepting that every once in a while you have a couple of moles and just you know embracing that as a as a more holistic system that has Is More self maintaining could be one solution. I'm not saying that's the only solution. So that's kind of an example of like how you maybe look at things from permaculture culture lens as opposed to this the somewhat Sometimes simplified lends that we use today so again in more in my own words permaculture really is like the design perspective inspired by nature using purposeful interventions to create resilient systems that that require minimal long-term inputs for maximum sufficiency and yield so. I'm GonNa read that one again too. I wrote these down if it's not obvious. But this is kind of my own personal definition of permaculture in a way that is helpful to me and I feel helpful to more and more easily digestible to more people all too so permaculture is designed perspective inspired by nature using purposeful interventions to create resilient systems. That require choir..

"Welcome to the show hey everyone I love that champion of the way we'll take it some really excited to welcome Amanda on the show to really Kinda just dive deep into this world of energy and world of nature how we can be connected to nature more deeply in our lives in through our landscapes and more aware of the energy around us as well so that's why I wanted to welcome and on is she's way more I in tune with this stuff than I am and also way more educated about way more eloquent so Amanda thank you for coming on the show I also wanted to share a brief story that includes Amanda in y welcomed her on the show today so if we rewind all the way back to the beginning of easy living yards we are actually called aesthetic ecosystems aesthetic ecosystems was a the concept of a business that I started with the whole idea of combining environmental conscious design with beautiful landscapes to create to create beautiful spaces that we love and make a positive impact on the world I've made a slight pivot from that About about two years ago we rebranded as easy living yards and it in with that I broadened our message to low maintenance landscaping and I think what's happened with that too honest with myself as I've gotten away from my core message it's really important to me that we care for our spaces in a way that makes the world around us better and so makes us feel better too with making a positive impact on the world so recently I've got some nudging including when I was a guest Don Amandus Show recently I was very fortunate to be on Amandus show and to have a wonderful discussion with her about What we can do in our landscapes to to really be more in tune with nature and after that discussion she gave me a nudge saying Ben Need to be more open and honest on your show she she was pretty direct I'll make is and push a and and you know what I really listened to that and I think it is true so I want to announce today that that easy living yards is making a shift we're going to be focusing on eco-friendly designed so beautiful low maintenance landscapes in your yard that are also good for the world around us so what can we do to make that positive impact on the world around us to create beautiful habitat into be more in tune with the natural world that we belong it so I'm really excited to make that announced spent here with Amanda so Amanda thank you so much for giving me this nudge and really excited for you to be here thank him I'm excited to via part of this journey with you I think that making this transition while scary you know going into the Wu can be scary because I think a lot of people floor unsure about it and we've been our culture is just really condition to be black and white and the gray area can be scary but it's often the most transformational so I think that this is going to be a great transition for you and it's going to be great for your audience to to reconnect with nature and a much more a powerful way and I just WanNa manage him my podcast is called home energy design and you can find that on itunes or stitcher but the show that Ben and I did is shown number ninety seven and I would encourage everyone to listen to it because I think it's probably one of the best shows that I've done and Ben in I go there and it's a great discussion That kind of starts this conversation about nature spirits and wire landscapes are so important to us and that show in particular was about you know how to honor our gardens in the winter when they get dilapidated and sad and how to look at it from a higher state of Gotcha snus of making it not a sad event but away to celebrate it so it's a great conversation starter which is now following into this show today will thank you for that no we'll make sure to include a link to that in the show notes as well so that way people can find it quickly so our theme for today's show and this is guys this is straight from amandas talking with her spirit guides she gave us the prompt of how the energy of our outdoor spaces in her nature spirits affect us in the world around us and so I really wanted to all think openly into really feel this show before we turn it off just kind of consider this world of what we calling the world of Wu and how it might speak to you in whatever way that is so this isn't surly in Amanda please correct me if you feel differently this isn't necessarily a religious thing or a specific spirit actual practice this is kind of encompassing thing about being in tune with that world we can't see into also being open to the messages that gives us the sound right Amanda Yeah I mean I think that really what it comes down to is it's just our inner guidance we all have it we've all had that sense of how many times has someone said to you man if I just trusted my gut or a here this one a lot I knew not to do it I knew to hire that person I knew not to go there I just felt it in my gut and I did it anyways we've all had that we've all felt that so it's just really honoring and paying attention to the inner guidance that we all have and if you WANNA call that Wou- great I don't think it's it can be a religious experience I mean I know you may be saying yourself Oh Hallelujah you know I have great health I just got the money I need but I think it's more celebrating your own energy system and what it has to offer you okay great that's really a good way to put it so interesting so before we jump into talking about landscapes and outdoor spaces at really loved to hear in your words some maybe a few definitions so I when you're talking about energy and we kinda just about this what are you what is energy to sway practitioner and I actually got into interior design so that I could be an advanced functionality practitioner back when I I was actually premed I was going into Med School got accepted the med school and I had this very spiritual experience with the woman at a orders bookstore of all places and it completely changed my life and I decided to give up med school and go into funkaway and I knew nothing about it I had no idea what it was and if you had said to me energy woo spirituality I would have just looked at you blankly like you had a third head like I have known what that meant but I had this very magical experience and that's where many of my intuitive abilities really started coming online I started having some amazing experience and I wanted more it was like my cocaine I was just like oh my gosh I have to have more visits amazing and I think that's why a lot of us need spiritual matter in our lives because that's what it does for us it you know it heightens our abilities and it gives us a level of peace and contentment that you can't find an external thing things which is how we're conditioned to think that that's how we find happiness and so I got into interior design so that I could get into homes and practice this magical thing called functional and I had no idea what it was but I was kind of tinkering with it and having these incredible unexplainable holy cow moments that was like this is what I need to be doing so as I I if you had asked me this question twenty years ago I would've said Oh energy it's like this thing called G and so it's about getting it right in your environment now if you ask me what energy is I mean it's such a broad spectrum question because everything everything in your environment as energy you are energy the desk that you sit at his energy your walls or energy nature is energy and Einstein con called this the theory of entanglement this is consciousness were all connected we are all the same energy and that's how we communicate so if you go into let's say you're going to a party and you're immediately magnetized to one person but maybe there's another person room for whatever reason and you can't put your finger on it and you've never met this person before you just don't like them there's something that's offer you're thinking we don't really know that I I I don't really like them and you don't know why that's the entanglement of energy your energy field that surround your body is commute unicating with all of those things you know whether it's intangibles tangible or people so typically if you are magnetized award someone or you feel really good around someone it's because your energy is a match the vibration is the same and you're lifting each other up this is why nature is so important to our energy systems because nature's energy is pure and it's high and so we've talked about on my show Ben gone out nature and getting weird you know hugging a tree but your feet in the grass talking to birds that heightens your energy it makes you feel good so if you've had a really bad day you had a really bad day at work or maybe you experienced road rage the nature you put your feet in the grass you hug a tree you talked to nature maybe you get a delightful surprise and you know you see a bunny or a deer and you're delighted you feel good that's g that's energy you're getting elevated so your mood and.

Recreational marijuana drives down synthetic opioid deaths by a THIRD, study claims

"Let's talk about the issue that has worked to get the some Democrats and Republicans across this country and it is the legalization first of medical marijuana and then in some states it actually propelled itself to the legalization of the recreational use of marijuana through initiative and referendum and man the effect that it's having a pretty amazing there is new research out that says recreational we'd use could lead to a twenty to thirty five percent down turn in the number of opioid deaths that's it that's incredible I could see that twenty to thirty five percent I could see that because remember I had the personal experience two times in my life of having to use pain killers to ward off to us I mean numbing pain they just wouldn't leave it so after I got shot with the five hollowpoint bullets on the orders of the gadis to the Gambino said the back in that cabin June in nineteen ninety two I was on morphine for quite some time without that it just would have been unbearable unbearable and yet you because you could dispense the morphine into yourself you had a little quicker next you head to bed you a basically kept pumping a pump in it a you can like a vegetable you weren't interested in anything you know how I love to follow the news and sports I was interested in what is going on in the world long was this on and off for about two years while because I went in for two different operations of first one had no choice at save my life but then I had to have reverse a reversal operation you know to get rid of the colostomy bag and some of the other procedures that they took and I got to tell you what that is that was worse than the first operation because you knew you were going to get it and it was painful so I had a deal with the morphine effect and then weaning myself off the morphine but worst was when I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease have to having colitis and Ely ideas the pain was just nonstop day in day out they had me on oxy code own hillbilly heroin then they had me on morphine then they had me on fentanyl fentanyl ten times stronger than morphine himself and I must tell you that it wasn't until I was able to qualify for medical marijuana that I found something that not only I was able to deal with my knowledge of my reflux it had a calming effect and more importantly it did eventually deal with the pain yeah and you're not the only person obviously who says this which is why there have been there's really been a change I mean even even judge Jeanine Pirro is now involved in the medical marijuana world I think she's on she's on some advisory board yeah so I mean this is a you know it's it's becoming a lot more prevalent in today's society and for people like you I mean you were able to wean yourself off of the other stuff and get on the medical then general one was in the city it I mean I goals who cold Turkey sometimes and I was just like old man your body is just cycle wracked in pain you keep feeding yourself because a lot of the times issue prescription says take two a day one in the morning one in night but you start self medicate yeah and you do get you fork and it does feel great and then you want to feel like that all the time and then it's like pain in place well the pain is enormous and then all of a sudden you have this plagiarized effect but that goes away quickly you need more and you're talking about you're talking about medical legalize medical marijuana so these opioid they did this study the university of Massachusetts in it they analyzed opioid overdose deaths and the number of deaths fell in states where they had the legalize medical or recreational marijuana the effects were great as listen to this one where when recreational marijuana access gave more people access to dispensaries so the more dispensaries the higher the chances are you will not have it's like when you half your hunt for a seven eleven the more seven elevens the more times you can get your fix this for picture right the less seven elevens and all of a sudden you have the junk no I make a lot of sense if you have these legal outlets where they sell the recreational use of marijuana which means is quality control the state and the local community to making some money on the taxes and you taking it either the hands of the black market that makes all the sense in the world now where are most of the dispensers I mean I know for instance in California you can get them there in Venice Venice is a kind of a it's a highfalutin California California is way ahead of us in making it not only easy to access but invisible locations still in New York state out of sight out of mind in New Jersey it's getting better on the Murphy but a lot of its out of sight out of mind it's gonna be a lob rate the way any other business would be a lot right but don't aren't there more of these legal dispensaries and sort of the rougher neighborhoods predominantly the USA would like that because remember a lot of towns villages him borough say okay we're not opposed to legalization of the recreational use of marijuana just not on our town yeah exactly so the poorer communities say okay we'll house that is long as we get a bigger cut of the tax dollars so that's I guess I mean I guess that's a good thing because a they'll get the cut but H. B. they'll also have all of these medical of all these dispensary it like for instance dad over good access Denver's best known because you can go on the main drag Colfax and the state capital is right here the cathedral is right they have lots of commerce lots of activity and you see these marijuana shops but then you'll see it also in some industrialized areas where wow it's not globally around other than factories and wooden you know pallets in a waiting for trucks to come pick it up and they seem to do well and to me it's sort of like if we can help get people off of the opioid switch to solve problems such as some people to shake at such a killer

Philip Green fashion empire crumbles

"The high street fashion. Empire of Philip green is on the rocks. The UK retail I king has secured creditor support for three overhaul that's involve rent reductions store, closures, and to having of the company's pension deficit reduction payments, but will this be enough to save the business? Mafia Vinson discusses this question with Jonathan Ford and Jonathan Ely. Tell us a bit about Philip green and his fashion empire. How many stores all there in which are the best known brands? So the empire was put together from two big acquisitions that have Sears in one thousand nine hundred nine and nuts of Arcadia in two thousand and two Arcadia is, of course, the one that gives its name still to surf Phillips fashion empire four fifths of the revenues a made in the UK and Ireland from about five hundred sixty stores and they're all so concessions in department stores like Dem's and in some branches of Tesco now by far the best known of the Browns is top shop which counts for more than half of the sales, but there are also a series of smaller brands Burton, Wallis Dorothy Perkins, miss Selfridge Evans, being the main ones if my memory of back issues of vogue serves me talk shop was until. Recently regarded as something of a success, celebrities plumber into be associated with it gained to catwalk shows, and green was the person who is credited with getting it. But high profile on that level of success knighted for it. How is this managed to go wrong? So there are many causes a knife fits early into two buckets, if you like one is the sort of external factors over which Philip had relatively little control. And the other is the things that he did have influence and control over now outside his control was quite, simply the competition, much better. So back in two thousand and five when he was knighted, boo. A fashion retailer sells online and we'll turn over over a billion pounds this year did not even exist. And there's a whole series of those types of businesses have emerged who misguided, they sauce, people like that prime has really up to his game, h and. Am has opened hundreds of stores in the UK Zara has expanded quite aggressively in the UK. And also consumes have become much more kind to dispose to ordering clothing online something that seems a long time ago now but if you go back to the early noughties people were saying, oh, people will never order clothing, on my because they'll want to try it on. Well, they do try on. They try on at home and send back the bits they don't want, and then the things that he has done wrong. I think he basically took a lot of money out of Arcadia in the early noughties then famously paid his wife for one point two billion pound dividend didn't really invest enough act into the businesses that week online websites in their whole logistics, regarded as behind competitors and along with many other retailers from the sort of pre incidents era, they're finding now that they've simply got too many shops. So now so Philip finds himself as you say, with shops needing to close some of them leading to. Have the rent reduced on the others. Under the so-called company, voluntary arrangement. Can you just explain exactly what a VA is? And why he needed Sarah CVA is a peculiarly British form of insolvency that basically gives the company a window of opportunity to reach an agreement with its creditors to reduce its payments, and his overheads, and therefore is obligated, and actually any credits can be compromised under a CVA. But when it comes to retailers, it's almost invariably the landlords. That's are they face cuts to rents of between twenty five and fifty percents on about one hundred ninety four out of the five hundred also stores. They are the very significant aspects of this sceviour is that there is an agreement with a pension regulator Arkadiusz pension fund is about five hundred million pounds in deficit and the company had been making annual payments. To try and close that gap miss reached an agreement with the regulators, where it will reduce the payments, and so Philip, and his family will make good the difference, and that agreement with the pension regulates. The has very important political and legal ramifications should anything wrong with Arcadia further down the line, they still have to close certain outlets which talks about top shop, earlier, which other stores are going to be affected, or the CVA all of them all the chain. So twenty three stores will shots within the next year and that seems like quite low number out of five hundred sixty six but the reality, according to people in the commercial property world is the final number will be many more than not possibly into three figures that's because lots of stores are coming off lease anyway, and because over the three appeared of the CVA, there are lots of opportunities sort of written into the terms for either the landlords author Arcadia to end Elise early enclose a store. And that has raised questions really over the future of some of the other brands, we know already, the Evans miss Selfridge are going to move to a more wholesale type business model. So most of their stores will close one wonders how long things like Dorothy Perkins Wallis and Burson might lust because there's one marketing expert said to me last week if these stores didn't exist, would you go out of your way to invent them to have turn this round, if east Browns are not long for this world, even if he's able to have a little bit more success with top shop is there really a turnaround strategy Novus, while it's fair to say that many people think there isn't that what there is is too, vague into threadbare. So we know that he's basically plan to invest hundred thirty five million pounds over three years, roughly split half and half into improving the stores and improving the website and the online. Logistics the problem with that smaller a to really hundred thirty five million over three years
