I just wonder whether there's a turning point happening now which isn't visible yet. When you see this kind of volatility, especially in yields, it's the concentration of risks that will cause something to break.

And this bond market move, I think, speaks to that, particularly at the long end over the month so far.
A highlight from SEC Kills Stoner Cats' Buzz // friendtech Activity Surges
"Hey, everyone. Happy Friday and welcome to another weekly recap from The Defiant. I'm joined by Jeremy Nation and Owen Fournau, our staff reporters. And though we had a bit of a quiet week in the markets, we still had a lot of interesting developments across crypto and DeFi. So for one thing, the SEC has been stepping up its pursuit of NFT projects, not content with going after crypto and DeFi. They charged Ashton Kutcher's Stoner Cats project with selling unregistered securities. For those of you who are around in 2021, this was a very hyped project. And basically, they sold NFTs to finance an animated web series. And they, I think they made a few episodes, but then the project kind of died off. And so the SEC has charged them with basically misleading investors with the promise of profits, et cetera. So that's I think the implications of that for the broader NFT space or something that we're going to dive into as we go on with the show. In other news, we had Friendtech, of course, coming back after a sort of a lull over the last two weeks or so. This week, we suddenly saw a resurgence and record inflows. Right. And Owen's all over that. Try my best. Yeah. We had the banana token, which was the token belonging to a Telegram bot that was a really hyped launch that went badly wrong to start off the week when a contract bug basically forced them to drain the liquidity and relaunch the token. And of course, it wouldn't be a week without some new Binance FUD. Right. So as always, there's always something going on with the world's largest exchange regulators all around the world seems to seem to just want something from them all the time. So we'll talk about that as well. So let's dive straight in and get started with the SEC's recent action against Stoner Cats. All right. So hey, everyone, everyone's doing okay. So that was September 13. The SEC charged the company behind Stoner Cats with selling tokens in an unregistered securities offering. And that was the second direct charge against an NFT project in the last two plus, maybe like two and a half weeks, because the SEC charged a project called Impact Theory with also selling unregistered securities. And so we're starting to see a pattern, obviously, of these projects settling with the SEC so far. And we're going to have to see where this goes. One thing people were pointing out is that because the owners of the projects stood to gain from the royalties that they because they because they make money off the royalties, they were encouraging people to buy and sell them, which made them more because they profited off that it made them more likely to, I guess, just, yeah, I don't know, it makes it more like a security. I don't quite follow the legal reasoning there. But yeah, we're starting to see a buildup of cases. I talked to some lawyers a couple weeks ago and saying like, yeah, there might be this kind of way where you build up various enforcement actions and kind of use them. When you go after bigger players, you kind of point to these and say, look, these people settled like you're not on good grounds, although it doesn't actually set formal legal precedent, these, these settlements, they still have kind of a murky but impactful effect on cases moving forward is my understanding. So we'll have to see, obviously, a huge amount of NFT projects went live in 2021. And we'll have to see which, which the SEC picks off next, because I find it pretty unlikely that they're going to stop at these two right here. I don't know. The SEC seems they seem to be going after any type of crypto project that has any type of celebrity endorsement is what I've seen. I saw that too. Yeah. I wonder I wonder if they're doing. Yeah, they're going after big names for whatever reason to show they're not. I don't know. I don't know what their strategy is to show they're not scared of. Yeah, big names, but not big industries. They aren't shutting down the voyagers or the FTX is that are out there defrauding people for all those. defrauding because, you know, yeah, I mean, I think it's interesting that they picked this particular project because of all the broken promises and, you know, unfulfilled hype. Yeah, these guys actually made the show, right? They actually put out seven episodes. Most projects just put a roadmap out and did nothing. If I was an NFT founder from 2021, and I kind of soft drug, I'd be scared right now, especially given these recent actions. I'd say 99 % of the projects out there are guilty of worse than it's going to get. Yeah, Tegan, Jordan Teague, she's a lawyer. What did she say? She said, sorry, guys, it's been a rough morning. But God, I don't remember. She said something which I thought was interesting, but I don't remember. I'm sorry. Yeah, I think it'd be just interesting to see the next actions, like you said, right? Because if they try to build a series of actions to kind of build precedent, they have plenty of targets to go after. Certainly, it's a target rich environment, like Gary just needs to like, he can walk in blindfold and just open his eyes and find a rug. There's no there's no legal precedent. That's merely like the precedent based on like the social setting here where we're like, well, everyone else is doing it. So we'll settle to and if someone does decide, hey, we're going to fight you on this, you know, then it's going to go to a court to decide. And then that's where we've seen I think a lot more. I've seen Ashton Kutcher shield XRP on Ellen. I think we had everyone sharing anything. And you know, what's interesting is XRP has persisted longer than Ellen's show, which just shows that you should be nice to people. Anyway. The point here is, if it does go to like a legal case where like someone says, hey, we're not going to settle with you, then we're going to actually see where like, where this falls down here, because the SEC, from my opinion here, has their work cut out for them in court. When people are willing to say, oh, sure, we'll go along with you and like, you know, take the slap on the wrist. You know, these are people that have lots of money. That's I think why they're going after the celebrities, right? Because they know that there's a well of capital to draw upon in terms of, you know, levying fees and fines against these people, versus, you know, really digging in on a legal battle, because the celebrities don't have a stake in the dynamics of the Web3 ecosystem. Whereas some of these larger institutions that are willing to fight and wage that battle are, so they may be picking their targets based on that. Could be, because as part of the settlement, Stoner Cats also had to return all the money they raised, right? Yeah, they have to set a plan for it. Yeah. And when you have a high profile target, it's a lot easier to go after them. If you have like an anonymous founder for NFT project, you can just be anywhere in the world. Yeah. And are you really going to get that fine or penalty actually transferred? You never know. Might take years, right? Yeah.
A highlight from Chat #84 - Layers, Payments, and Relays with Utxo
"I'm not like really trying to make money with no less, you know, I really just want Bitcoin to be money I want my merchants to accept it. I want businesses that I go to all my friends to accept it I I just want it to be money You to Welcome the show, dude It's really really good to have you and I feel like we should have done this Already like we've been talking long enough and shooting the shit about damn near everything We're building and working on and all the projects and everything that it it should have been obvious We should have done this like three months ago. Well, we finally did it's on the books. We are we made it man We got it on the calendar. I had a calendar invite Professional and everything God. Oh my god. Is that like an automatic email that sent out to you? I didn't even do it like is like magic so professional almost like there's a business over here. Okay? Well, dude welcome and I'm I'm really stoked to get into this So the first thing I want to do just for obviously the audience But actually a lot for me because I don't really know a lot about your background and have a lot of the things we talked About like stuff you've worked on but give me give me the give me the setup, you know Like give me the the prologue to where we are now for mr. UTXA All right. Well, thanks for having me. First of all, I When it comes to Bitcoin, it's probably similar to like everybody else in the world, you know, like I heard about it mad early Thought it was stupid You know and then I used it a little bit for online poker To like because there's a lot there's a lot of censorship and online poker like, you know visa Masticar like didn't allow it certain countries. Anyway, it was a big nightmare, but Bitcoin made it so easy what you was when was this? It's probably like 2013 2014 Timeframe or whatever. Oh, yeah So this is like what about online poker? I forgot that that was there was like that corner during during those days Yeah, man. Yeah, it was big and like every site basically had it But The thing so that was kind of like my second touch point I'm like now I'm actually using Bitcoin but I hated it because it's like, okay Yeah, I can withdraw from it But the next day I go to a new site and I lost 30 % of my money It's like why did I spend all this time grinding just so big Yeah, it was ridiculous man So I just I hated Bitcoin even more Okay, and now 2017 rolls around now now it's ripping and I feel stupid. I'm like man I had all this this Bitcoin and I got it from the online poker sites You know, like it was like in the in the tens of bitcoins, right? So now I feel so stupid. So I'm like now I just buy in like right at the top of 2017 Get fucking wrecked, right? Yeah, so that but that's when I was like Instead of like selling I just did the like Bitcoin or cope thing and I'm just like, oh no I'm just gonna like hold and I don't care that I just like it wasn't a lot of money that I put in You know at that time But just like how to make it hurt a lot less but yeah But like, you know, it gave me a chance for my orange pill to like digest or whatever and then And then 20 the slow release exactly. Yeah Yeah slow release and then you know 2020 rolls around and then like everything starts to come true like all those like cope stories that I've been like Listening to over the years. It's like wait a minute. This is not a cope story It you know, this is where we were going yeah, this shit is actually real so that's when I was like, alright I'm a Bitcoin or true and true, you know, like after kovat that that was it for me So that's like that's my Bitcoin story, man. Nice. Nice What were you what led you to the development stuff that you're working on? Like what were you doing before that? so My main business is actually like AI even though like my passion is all in Bitcoin and noster like freedom tech and stuff. Like what's been paying the bills for me is like doing AI So I built a bunch of like AI affiliate sites AI sass apps That I just like that. I just own but then I got kind of bored with that I was just like so passionate about Bitcoin and freedom type I've been doing that for like probably three years now, but the truth is it's like I'm not really It's not enough to pay the bills, right? So it's like thankfully the AI has been like doing well So it gives me a free time to like work on what I love with Bitcoin So that's really been it. I mean I started using BTC pay server. That was like my first way I just wanted it on my website to accept payments But it didn't have a lot of the features that I wanted. So I just I started building them for myself It was a selfish thing. Really. I just I wanted the functions to work on my site. So I started contributing and just, you know the path it just kept opening up and now lightning and Yeah, so that's that's kind of like the origin story of Getting into dev for me. Did you build with BTC pay server for a while or Like did I use it on my websites or did you actually did you actually build with the project I Can contribute to BTC pay I guess. Oh, yeah. I've been I've been a contributor at BTC pay server for like almost three years now So all the like WooCommerce press the shop all of those integrations a big part of what I do is like handle the SDK so that BTC pay server can communicate with like WordPress and press the drop and all that kind of thing So that's like the big thing that I handle Me and another guy named Andy. We basically like handle that package and like that's the backbone of how Probably like half the websites out there using BTC pay server Gotcha, and it was it was pretty limited when I started You know, I'm actually curious. Um, I would love to hear what your layman's explanations because I know where dev kits and stuff kind of fit into the stack so to speak but it's one of those things that like you kind of use or you're familiar with something but You know so often like what is really going on has just been obscured You just kind of like know where the Lego piece fits rather than know what the Lego piece is You know, I mean give me give me your explanation especially for the audience the the less technical people What's the nest? What's the SDK? Like what's Where does that fit in and why so an SDK makes it easy for a developer to use your application? So if we take BTC pay server, for example Instead of a developer having to like read all the documentation of like, how do I make the API column? What fields do I need or whatever if you use the SDK when you're in your like code editor everything just auto completes for you so I can just be like send coins and it's just like Sendcoins address number. Boom you like instead of you just write like one line of code and it just works It just so a software development kit in a nutshell is just trying to make it very easy for developers to like integrate with your systems so literally in the context of Using the Lego analogy. It's it's like having pre -built sections of Lego blocks so that when you're putting something together you can just grab the whole block of stuff and just stick it where it needs to go and you don't have to redesign the Send find, transaction you know Look up transaction like all the all the actual pieces like you would have to write actual code and pull the API and all this Information and it's just like well, why don't you just take this block that accomplishes this task and then just keep going You know like yep solve that problem simplify that for me. Yeah. Yep. That's exactly what it is. So after you Kind of resolving the BTC pay problems that you wanted to solve This led you to Nodeless, which is the project This is this is when I found out about you because I thought this was fascinating and I was immediately like I mean No, no hate to BTC pay. I've loved BTC pay. I've been using it for a really long time But I I don't like to spend time on stuff Like I don't I have I spend plenty of time on plenty of things and I have gotten to this place where I'm just like wait, so I can just Someone else can solve this for me and I can just kind of pay them a little bit of money that's that's the best news I have gotten all month because and I've gotten to where I've hired multiple people for Bitcoin audible and it's like a huge expense, you know, and There's there's a lot to it. But now I just can't go back I just can't go back and I would never go back to publishing and doing all that stuff myself Like I just realized how much time I lost. So this is why I was immediately like Oh Nodeless because Nodeless does all of that work for me and makes those things simple So why what was your motivation for? Starting Nodeless and this is still really young right like when was when was Nodeless officially launched I Officially launched it like right before Nosterica, so I guess I was like March of this year. Okay. Okay. Yeah, so still very and that launch was like a Law, it was like a Noster launch, you know, like yes half built it like half the things didn't work You know, it's pretty good now, but at the time, you know, yeah, we're only like recently kind of stable But really like so yeah, so I start working on BTC pay server. Okay now I'm like fully green -pilled I'm telling everyone I'm like, oh, you know You gotta be self -sovereign. You gotta accept your own payments. You gotta run a node You know, like I'm going around tell and then people are like, okay, you know show me how to do it All right, show them how to do it and then before you know it I have like Not many maybe like five or six people that I got to run BTC pay server and now what is my full -time job like? Technical support for all these people. Yeah And like it gets serious like sometimes when lightning screws up like it's scary And it's hard to recover if you didn't do your backups properly and like not everybody is like so perfect at running their Infrastructure like I love doing that shit. That's great But like most people actually don't like doing that and they're not very good at it or very responsible about it either, right? so I was just like originally, I was just like if I could just run the node for my friends it would solve everything because it's actually like BTC pay server the Software itself is like amazing and easy to use. It's like everything all the challenges came from the lightning node part of it So, yeah I was just like how could I possibly do this and then that's where it's like it kind of like evolved into node list so it was like That's basically what node list is right like it's young. It's my big node and you can connect to it to accept your payments But I wanted to do it like to really stay as close to BTC pay server as possible like not be Custodial not be KYC like not do all of that So that's like sort of how we we came about doing it It was just like I I want everyone to use BTC pay server I want them to be self -sovereign But I think it is too much to ask people to run lightning nodes Like that's just that's just the truth man. Like maybe it hurts to hear that but it's true I think it makes more sense in the context of because you think about it like a major part of the problem is the same problem the internet has had since the beginning is DNS and running a cloud accessible server Running a front -end because like, you know in the context of like a Phoenix wallet or whatever. I'm running my own node Right, like on my mobile wallet and on my phone I have my keys But I don't have a web face. Like I don't have a front end so that someone can Donate when my phone's often in my pocket or something, you know so it's it's funny how much of the problems and this is the same issue like a Fiat JAF posts this a lot and he's super critical. I mean I mad respect and I like the way that he's critical But but nonetheless he he shifts on lightning all the time And and he posts the chart of like the the noster The explosion in custodial lightning, right and And and what's funny is that Like all I can do when I kind of look at that the best example I have in my mind of like what's going on there and why 80 % or 90 % or whatever now is like quote -unquote custodial lightning is zaps on Noster is that all I can do is think about it in the context of like me I have like my frame of reference how I use it and I show up in that statistic looking like I'm overwhelmingly majority custodial and The reason is is because of the lightning address like that's the reason period it's to have the web front end so that somebody can zap me and But the thing is is my value my value is not stuck in custodial So like whereas most of the payments come through to my albie address Or before it was the Ellen tips Cali BTC Ellen tips spot Which they host and is custodial all of the value was I would just withdraw to my Phoenix or to breeze or to my BTC pay server to My my lightning node Once every two weeks, so I get like 500 zaps at 21 sets 100 sets 69 sets and you know over and over and over again an Overwhelming majority of my activity is custodial, but then I only ever have like 40 bucks in it And as soon as it's like a hundred thousand sets two hundred three hundred thousand sets I'm just like, okay withdraw one payment to my Phoenix and it's behind my keys and I think like that's a huge caveat.

We hope to inspire you to live the best life you can. Get out of your comfort zone and explore the awesome world around you, break through your barriers, take inspired action, use the difficulties in your life to achieve the best version of you. Ladies and gentlemen, our next guest is Brittany Hayden who is a nurse practitioner, owner and CEO of a functional medicine company located in Nebraska. She is also a virtual health coaching business. She also has a virtual health coaching business helping women improve their gut health and balance hormones by addressing the underlying imbalances within their life. Brittany developed a love for functional medicine after her own health issues. Once she began to look for the underlying source for her health problems, she realized how powerful a root cause approach could be. She now dedicates her life to helping others find healing they once thought impossible. Welcome Brittany. Hey, thank you for Sure. So in my 30s, I started to get sick. And it started off with just, I actually always been one that suffered from allergies, but the allergies turned into severe respiratory asthma symptoms, and it was uncontrollable. And when that happens, I obviously wondered what on earth was going on in my life that was causing this drastic shift. And so I started looking for the root cause of and I didn't even know what root cause was, but I started looking for the reason why my body was having respiratory these severe problems, because medication wasn't managing my symptoms. And I was able to figure out that had to do with air quality in my home, and I had to make some adjustments. And I got over that hurdle, but then something else happened to my to my body. I developed severe cardiac problems. And I had I'd gone to the cardiologist, I had had all of the the workups, the EKGs, the echoes, and was put on medication and the arrhythmias were so bad, they left me in bed a lot of the time just unable to function. And I was a busy mom, I was working full time as a director of nursing, and my health was just declining at a rapid pace. And I, I was speaking to my aunt who was in, she's a nurse practitioner as well. And we decided that I needed to go get a second opinion, we were thinking that I'd probably have to have ablation done. And as I was on my way to go see this other cardiologist, a friend recommended a parasite cleanse. And I did not even know what a parasite cleanse was. I mean, I'd been in healthcare for 20 years, but that concept was totally foreign to me, you know, that that was something that you just got when you went to another country. But I was so desperate, and my health was so bad. I knew that if I didn't start doing something, I probably wasn't going to be alive very much longer because I was so sick. And so I go and see this other cardiologist, and he doesn't know exactly what to do with me. And we come up with this game plan. And I don't tell him that I'm also going to order some sort of herbal parasitic cleanse that I knew he probably wouldn't be too favorable with me doing. But I went home, that's what I did. I went home and I did some research and I, I just ordered a random parasite cleanse, not from any place reputable. But within the first couple weeks of taking that, my arrhythmias began to slow down to the point of by the end of 30 days, I wasn't having hardly any arrhythmias whatsoever. And I called my friend and she she's like, you better do another 30 days of that parasite cleanse. So I did. And by the end of the 60 days, I never had a heart arrhythmia at all. And really that got my brain to thinking and, and I mean, I was overjoyed that I was actually functioning well, and my heart was beating like it was supposed to be beating. But that was not the end of my health journey, or my sick journey, I should say. Because I still was suffering with a lot of brain fog and chronic fatigue and just generalized symptoms that I, I'd kind of chalked up to being normal for, for myself being a busy mom working in my mid 30s. That was just kind of normal. But these generalized symptoms started to get worse. I started developing severe joint pain, I was forgetting how to take steps, I would be walking up the stairwell, and like, I would get halfway up the stairs, and I couldn't remember if I needed to take another step, or I'd get down on the ground, and I'd be in so much pain. I didn't know how I was going to get back up. And then I started rashes developing and hives. And the list just kept getting bigger. This was after your cleanse? Yes, this was after my cleanse. And it was actually quite some time afterwards, like, probably another year or so that it started to, all these symptoms just started to compound and get worse. Well, how did you pull it all together that something was happening? And how did you move forward? I, I happened to just be searching on Facebook, and not really searching, but just scrolling, and I happened to come across a another woman talking about breast implants and the problems that she was having. And as I started reading about her symptoms that she was having, it propelled me to investigate breast implant illness. So tell me, when did you have your breast implant? Well, I'd had them for 17 years. And what type of implants did you have? Saline. So supposedly, they were the safe. Those were supposed to be safer. Yes, they were supposed to be safe. And I started digging and I found a Facebook group with thousands and thousands of women that were having the same symptoms that I had. And I knew, you know, when I got implants, there was always this like 10 year life limit. Well, I was obviously beyond the 10 years. But I realized, looking back in the last 10 years, all of these things that were happening to me, and putting the pieces together and realizing that I think my implants are contributing to all of the problems that I've been having. So I made the decision to have them removed. And it was like a light switch. I mean, after I came out of surgery, my color started to get better. The clarity in my eyes, my thought process, everything started to shift and I started to be able to heal. So were your implants contaminated with yeast? You know, just looking at them, they didn't look too bad. But when I looked at the ports after they sent them home with me, the ports had mold in them. Not a lot. I know some people's look way worse than mine, but there was black mold in my ports. Yeah, I think this bears out to our listeners that, you know, yeast is all around. They love to take their inhabitants on bodies in the body that are just sitting there and breast implants are some of them. Yes. Yeah. It was just like the most remarkable, remarkable shift. You know, it's a scary thing to do. It's scary to change that much. I mean, you're changing your physical appearance. But when your life depends on it, I can't even put it into words. I mean, it was just the most incredible thing from being so sick, barely able to function one day. And to be able to think clearly and not be in pain. I mean, it was just remarkable. So how has this all affected your view on medicine now? How has this brought about your current view and perspective of what you believe? It totally shifted my perspective on medicine. I mean, obviously, I realized that there was so much power in looking not just at the symptoms that people were having, but digging and figuring out the root of the problem. Because obviously, in all of my health problems, that's really what came down to I had to figure out the root of the problem in order to begin to heal. And so with many of our generalized symptoms that we have, especially as women, there's a reason for it. So let's not just look at your blood work from a normal standpoint. Let's look at it through a healthy, functioning, optimal range and see where those imbalances are. Let's look at your surroundings. What toxins are you being exposed to every day? What are you putting in your body? It just opens up this whole new world when it comes to health and healing. That's important. So you now talk from the perspective of functional medicine. What is functional medicine and how does that apply to our listeners? So functional medicine is, in essence, looking for the root cause of symptoms and disease and addressing those problems from that standpoint in order to nurture and heal the cells and your organs and tissues so they can work optimally. And when it comes to how do you apply functional medicine, even in your own daily life, I mean, it's a matter of being aware of the things that, like I mentioned, that are around you every day. The food that you eat. And instead of going out and eating fast food, let's eat whole foods that actually are going to nurture your body and your cells and provide nutrients. It's opting for cleaner household products, cleaner skin care, because all of those things, when you breathe them in, when you put them on your skin, they affect your body and how it works. Whether you're able to detoxify, how you handle stress, whether you're going to have inflammation. I mean, all of these things that we're exposed to play a big role in disease processes. Yeah, that's important. So do you have a blog or a book? I know you're CEA on Renové Functional Medicine located in Nebraska. What do you do as CEO of that group and tell us how you're approaching this issue? So yeah, I have a functional medicine clinic in Nebraska, Renové Functional Medicine, as well as a virtual health coaching business so I can reach a broader, wider group of people. I actually live in a pretty rural part of the state. So I work a lot with women, not exclusively women, but I think women are more apt to seek help to begin with. But yeah, really looking at the cause of some of the problems that they're having. Gut health, I believe, is super duper important because so much of your immune system stems from your gut. And so a lot of my clients are suffering from gut problems. But even if they're not, because we live in such a toxic environment and we don't eat very clean, our gut health just is always a big foundation when I'm addressing any sort of underlying issue. Like I mentioned, hormones are also, they also come into play. But the health of your gut, your ability to digest and absorb nutrients, that's obviously going to affect your hormonal balance. And so just being able to look at the body as a whole and being able to just take all of these bits and pieces of the information that my clients are giving me and to figure out what direction do we go, how do we support them in the most optimal way in order to get their bodies back into a functioning healthy state. So what would your advice be to somebody who's not doing well? How would you ask them or advise them to proceed if their doctor isn't I say find a second opinion. But I think you really need to find someone that listens to you. Obviously there are getting to be more and more people that are aware of functional medicine and looking at the root cause. So being able to seek those out and I mean you can learn so much online, even doing your own research. But obviously like the foundation of any sort of health transition is really going to lie with things that you can do yourself. I mean you can, you choose the food you eat. So start looking at more whole food options versus fast food or processed foods. Being able to modify the things that you're using in your home and your makeup and your hair care, how you handle stress, all of these things are easily modifiable if you are motivated to take those steps to do so. That's huge. So Brittany, this show is called the How to Live a Fantastic Life Show. How do you currently live a fantastic life? I choose to live a fantastic life by living in peace and joy and living with a purpose. That's really important. Can you elaborate a bit more please? I think it's a choice actually. And each day we are given the choice of how we think and where we allow our thoughts to go and what fills us up inside. And having lived some of my life in a place of non -peace and non -joy, I choose to have a positive mindset. I choose to live with joy in my heart and to fill my bucket with good things and people around me that bring life and goodness to me. And being able to serve and give back what I have learned on my journey, that is my purpose. And that in of itself brings me joy. That's huge. What do you recommend for others to live a life like you do? Well, like I said, it is a choice. So obviously our daily thoughts are very important. But I also believe like making healthy choices, being able to provide our bodies with the things that they need to function is going to support and help your thoughts. It's going to help alleviate stress. So not only do you need to reframe your thought process and kind of fake it till you make it sometimes, you choose to see the good in front of you versus the negative, but also nurturing your body from within and really surrounding yourself with people that are going to be a positive. They're going to give you positive feedback. They're going to support the changes that you might choose to implement and just really be encouraging and loving. That's fine. Brittany, how can people find out more about you and what you have to offer? So I am on Facebook and Instagram and TikTok and you can find me at the number one, Brittany Heiden. That's my tag.

And then you can also find me on my website, which is BrittanyHeiden .com. Perfect. Brittany, thank you so much for sharing your story with us today. Yeah, thank you for having me. I think it's important that people realize that if you're not feeling well, there's a reason behind it. Yes. You have to look at all the reasons, not just the ones that you think are the causes. And if you don't find them, keep looking, because there's a cause for all this. Yes, I agree. Ladies and gentlemen, Dr. Laika here, Dr. Ellen Laika. Please check out my website.

A highlight from President Biden's trip to NATO Summit 2023
"Welcome to today's podcast, sponsored by Hillsdale College, all things Hillsdale, hillsdale .edu. I encourage you to take advantage of the many free online courses there. And of course, to listen to the Hillsdale dialogues, all of them at hughforhillsdale .com or just Google Apple, iTunes, and Hillsdale. Morning, glory America, Bonjour, hi Canada. Good Wednesday to you. I'm Hugh Hewitt in the Studio North. President Biden went to bed. That's my lead story. And you say, why is that a lead story? There's a lot of news going on. Former President Trump is picking a fight with Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds. We got a lot of John Kerry audio for those of you who want to go back to sleep. We've got questions about the Hunter Biden plea deal and whether or not Judge Mary Ellen Norika is going to do right. Well, Joe Biden went to bed. That's the lead story in the Telegraph. Biden skips NATO leaders dinner to, quote, prepare for a big speech. So, presidents tuckered out. All right. He's got to go to bed at five o 'clock because he's up at 6 a .m., which is not true. I go to bed early. You know, I got to get up early. If I sleep in, it's 5 15 when I get up. If I get up at the normal time, it's 4 30. But either way, I'm always on the air somewhere at 6 a .m. in the morning. 9 a .m. other places, 10 a .m. other places, 1 a .m., 1 p .m. other place. But I have to get up early. So I understand going to bed early. But the president flies all the way to England, which is like a three hour flight, right? It's not like he's gone around the world as Japan. He's got jet lag. You went to England from Washington, D .C. It's actually less of a change to go from Washington, D .C. to Denver. So he goes over to England and he gets completely lost with the prince. He's wandering around. And then the reports Telegraph Joe Biden skipped a dinner with NATO leaders last night to head back to his hotel in Vilnius. I'm sorry, not in England. He went on from England over to Vilnius. He went to dinner back to his hotel in Vilnius to prepare for a, quote, big speech. U .S. official blamed the 80 year old president's busy schedule on his absence at the gathering of the NATO alliance's leaders. Mr. Biden has spent the weekend at the beach before arriving in Sunday Europe on night, had Anthony Blinken, the U .S. secretary of state, attend in his place. That's going to be thrilling to everyone. I like Tony Blinken. I mean, I'd love to go to dinner with Tony Blinken. Very got a lot of good stories. You got every head of state there. There's a war in the middle of Europe. It's like going to the Tehran summit with Churchill, FDR and Stalin and FDR saying, let me send over Henry Wallace. I actually, Cordell Hall, I don't know who it was. And the idea that the president of the United States cannot stay up for a NATO summit isn't about time we had a talk with the president about just showing your cards. You're not running for reelection. There's just no way. You're 80 years old and you're feeling it. But let's give a listen to what he had to say yesterday. Cut number one. President Biden has arrived in Lithuania for the NATO summit. And he doesn't know where he's going. He's looking around. And if you're watching on the Salem news channel, you can see it. Whoever is the president of Lithuania is taller. Now he's turning around and wants to go back on the plane. Then he shakes hand and he moves forward. OK, cut number two. President Biden, Jan Stoltenberg, who is the leader of NATO and has been since I was seven. Keep going. Cut number two. Mr. President, it's great to have you here at the NATO summit. It's good to be here and thank you for continuing to deliver. I am, as I've made no mistake, not at all surprised. I've been telling the fact that I think it's really important at this critical moment in the whole NATO issue that you continue to lead NATO. You're trusted. No one knows the situation that we're facing better than you do. And this historic moment, the adding of Finland and Sweden to NATO is consequential. And your leadership really matters. And we agree on the language that we've proposed. OK, he's really sold on this Finland and Sweden deal. He's got that committed to memory. Finland and Sweden are coming in. Cut number three. This is consequential. And your leadership really matters. And we agree on the language that you proposed relative to the future of Ukraine being able to join NATO. And we're looking forward to continuing to unite NATO. They've heard me say, my American president heard me say many times, I still think that President Putin thinks the way he succeeds is to break NATO. Not going to do that, especially when you listen to us. So thank you for the moment. I am reminded of A .T., my beloved grandfather lived 101 years old on his own wheels in his own house. And I love the guy so much, Gramps. And he was a fireman, so of course I looked up to him like a giant when I was three or four. But A .T., as he got older, was always a go get him kind of guy. Didn't really, not very good on the details. Where are you? Are you at Yale? Are you at Columbus? You go to Ohio State? Not real long on the details, but great on the love, right? That's what grandparents after A .T. do. Not long on the details. They're at the baseball game. They're not sure if you're supposed to steal second or not. They're not even sure if it's a baseball game, but they're there and they're cheering for you. And Grandpa Joe is just great. He's there for Jan Stoltenberg. But it gets a little bit worrisome when he tells the Lithuanian president cut number four. Our pledge to to be with you has not waited. It didn't take us long to get thousands of troops here to want Russia invaded the second time. So we'll be able to be assured that you're going to have all that you need. If you have sector defenses today, you can send him along. It's all kidding aside. All kidding aside, that's after he jokes about Russia invading Lithuania.
"ellen" Discussed on The Essential Oil Revolution
"A really nice kind of lightens you up a little bit, but keeps your digestive warm, keeps your chi moving, et cetera. In spring, I like to make brothy types of soups. I have a brothy soup that has, it's made with a mushroom broth and Asian greens or any kind of light spring greens. I have that. You want to pick things that possibly are easy to digest that are not too heavy. Steamed fish with herbs and like a rice pilaf is a very nice go -to dish. Also, congee, which in all cultures, we porridges, have right? In Northern Europe, you have oats or buckwheat, or in Italy, you have polenta porridge, but in Asia, they make a rice porridge, which is like a half a cup of rice to four to six cups of water. And then you cook that for long periods of time. So in my book, I've created seasons and every season has a different congee. Every season has a different brothy soup. Every season has a different essential seed and nut porridge that I created that's grain -free for people who can't eat grains. So all of them are adapted in ways to help you be more in tune with the season. So for you, where it's hot and probably a little humid, correct? Yeah, it's getting there, it's getting there. Yeah, you want to really have foods that help clear that dampness. And part of the way you can do that is with a really wonderful herb, but it's a grain called Job's Tears, or hoto mugi. I've never heard of that. Job's Tears, you can get them online. Usually you have to look for them, but they are gluten -free barley, and that we use in Chinese herbal medicine to help clear dampness. And I will add that into a porridge, like a congee. I will add that into soups, just like a handful into a soup. And that helps just kind of get rid of that humidity that can build up in our own bodies, where we start to feel a little bit lethargic. So that's a nice and unusual, it's an unusual herb or food for most Westerners, but you can, online you can get anything, so. Yeah, that's true, okay. It's a curious name, Job's Tears. Yes. Got that name. But that is the great thing about, I live in a small kind of rural town, there is no, one thing my husband and I lament on all the time is there is no Asian market here, because we love Asian food. And when we go visit family in Chicago, we can go to the Asian market and get all sorts of these ingredients, and we take them back home. But at least now you have the internet, you can get all kinds of things. It's true, and in the back of my book, I have some resources where people can get those herbs and things online too. Very cool, very cool. Oh, this has been so fun. Ellen, are there any last words of wisdom you wanna share with our audience before we move on to our closing questions? Yeah, I think that we have to pay attention to how our body's feeling. And when something doesn't feel right, then it probably isn't right. You know, when we change the way we eat, and we eliminate certain high allergen type foods, like I talked about those highly processed foods, but for some people it can be dairy, for some people it can be gluten, for some people it can be fruit, it can be sugar, these kinds of things. So if you eat something and afterwards you feel bloated, you feel tired, you feel moody, you feel irritable, your digestion doesn't feel so good, then maybe it's something you ate. And you know, you can do little short -term experiments with yourself and eliminate things, but really eliminate them, and try to add more green vegetables to your diet, and then just see how you feel. But trust your body, you know, that's, we have to do that, and we have to find ways to cultivate that capacity. Growing a business brings pressure. Staying compliant and retaining top talent in challenging times, you feel stretched thin. Fortunately, there's InSparity.

Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen says he was attacked outside Florida hotel in March
"Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen says he was blindsided when he was attacked in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in March. With the latest, Rick Allen tells ABC's Good Morning America, he was out for a smoke break outside a hotel on March 13th when suddenly he was assaulted and he hid his head on the ground. Ellen says he put up his hand and said he was not a threat. I don't think he knew who I was. But he must have seen that I wasn't a threat because you know I've only got one arm.

Russia-Georgia flights resume despite protests, strained ties
"Direct flights have resumed between Russia and Georgia, amid protests and sharp criticism, just over a week after the Kremlin unexpectedly lifted a four year old ban, despite rocky relations between the nations. Georgian police clashed with protesters who had gathered at the airport to meet an azimuth airlines flight from Moscow, the first to arrive from Russia for four years, with signs and slogans criticizing the Kremlin pro European organizer Ellen Koch taria rejects any sign of pro Russian sympathies.

The Nostr Privacy Paradox
"Let's get into today's read. And its titled. The noster privacy paradox by Lola elites. While Nostra is by no means a privacy protocol, it could bring potential improvements to Bitcoin privacy. No stir, short for notes and other stuff transmitted through relays, is a new communication protocol, developed in 2021 by lightning network developer Fiat Jeff, which evolved out of Ellen bits developer Ben arcs attempt at a fully decentralized marketplace called diagon alley. As opposed to other communication solutions, which mostly functioned by a dumb client and smart servers, noster offers smart clients and dumb servers, which heightens censorship resistance for users. In those are all data is stored locally with users and merely distributed via relays rather than stored on central servers such as via Twitter. In the case of social media, no stir increases censorship resistance. As users are enabled to fully own their own content and profiles. In light of recent controversies around Twitter's censorship policies, users began migrating toward the Federated communications solution Mastodon. However, in Mastodon, ownership over content and profiles lies with those running the Mastodon servers that users signed up with. While federation's such as Mastodon offer more censorship resistance than centralized servers, as users are able to simply sign up to another server when censored, criticism has arisen around potential censorship on Mastodon through server owners. In December 2022, the noster community received a 14 Bitcoin grant from Twitter founder Jack Dorsey, which brought unprecedented attention to the protocol. As applications built on Nostra evolved, the mobile client domus jumped to number one in social networking in the iOS App Store in China, resulting in its ban. In an apparent effort to contain the hashtag march off Twitter, Twitter CEO Elon Musk shortly banned the publication of Nostra related content, along with bands on other third party platforms such as Instagram, but to no avail.
US ending extra help for groceries that started during COVID
"Nearly 30 million Americans who got extra government help with grocery bills during the pandemic will soon see that age shrink. Ellen bollinger with the nonprofit food research and action center says extra food stamps will end after February's payments. The average amount that the snap participant gets per day will be about $6. This will impact people like 21 year old Jacqueline Benitez, a preschool teacher in Bellflower, California. It's really difficult to try to afford food, so snap has helped me so much in that way. Benitez was previously homeless and now lives in a subsidized one bedroom apartment. She expects a significant cut in food benefits, making sure that it's really just the essentials and I'm not getting as many snacks. Which I mean is okay, but it's just, it's a little stressful. The rollback comes during a time when inflation remains elevated and food prices are still high. I'm Ed Donahue
Jay Leno Breaks Several Bones in 2nd Accident
"We wanted to talk about something that is, well, I don't know if we can really call it funny because it involves a very funny guy, Jay Leno, but this guy, it turns out he keeps getting seriously injured. We heard a few months ago. Yeah, for a few months ago back in November, he suffered second degree burns because he was doing something in his garage and it ignited. Well, hold on. Let me read. This is from an interview with Jay, I know, talking about this. He goes, I was underneath the car. I didn't had a clogged fuel line. And I asked my buddy to blow a little through the fuel light and boom, it hit me in the face with a quart of gas. There was a spark nearby and ignited it in my face caught on fire. I mean, it's hard to chuckle because it was. It was horrific. And we like Jay Leno, we're not like reveling in the verdict of Jay Leno. I mean, it's so sad. But he was very much, you know, like, hey guys, it's fine. It's fine. It's good. I'm good. And then. Well, what happened is this actually is amusing. Apparently Jay Leno had a second accident, but he didn't want to tell anybody about it because there had been a whole bunch of news reports on the burning. And so he thought, what the heck is so the second accident? Well, let's talk about the second accident. This is a motorcycle accident. He has multiple broken bones. And I think he broke his rib cage. Here we go, you got a scar across his neck, two broken ribs, two broken kneecaps, and a snapped collarbone. And then, of course, being Jay Leno. He goes, it's a little painful, but it's not the end of the world. Well, he goes, a 72 year old man driving an 83 year old motorcycle. What could go wrong? So, I mean, the thing about Jay Leno, first of all, this guy loves anything that moves. Any type of vehicle. And the faster the better. You know the Ellen's 204 stars. I did. And 168 motorcycles. He talks about that when he was on The Tonight Show. He talked about all his car collection and all that. So I knew he loved all that.
Ellen DeGeneres Documents Montecito Flooding Amid Emergency
"To rental rain has triggered flash floods all across California. Listen, I watched a video earlier of Ellen DeGeneres, and she was showing she showed this stream that runs behind her house and typically the stream is just really really slow, really calm. This thing looked like the Colorado River raging. So pray for the people inside of California and understand that this has nothing to do with man-made climate change. Isn't it funny because this is what I hear the left talking about already. That's the excuse. It isn't that California absolutely does nothing right now to catch a lot of their rainwater and reservoirs so that they can use the water for farmers and stuff like that. But this is mother nature. This is what this is mother nature. It has nothing to do with man-made climate change. I'm so sick of hearing that. Ellen DeGeneres said in her video she implied that she, she said something to the effect of mother nature is trying to tell us something. Yeah, mother nature is trying to tell you that no matter how many liberal policies you pass in the state of California, you can't do anything to stop, you can't do anything to stop natural disasters.

Wendy Williams Is Still Messy
"Wendy Williams didn't return to the air on October 4th as previously announced by the network. And before that, she was going to start to air a show on September 18th. The Wendy Williams show didn't make that one either. That's because Wendy Williams is still one big giant walking weave in a world of trouble and controversy. It does it in with this one. I know the entire daytime talk show entertainment industry hinges on Wendy's ability to sit upright in a chair. And say, how you doing? But the ladies just not up to it yet. And I know how badly she wants to outlast Ellen as the queen of daytime talk, but I don't see that happening like Wendy would like it to go. I just
AJ's Thoughts on Elliot Page
"Did you see Elliot Page? Whenever I hear Elliot Page, I always think it's not the former Ellen Page. To me, Elliot Page is the kid from ET who grew up. Because Alan page is starting to look like him when he was younger. It's very strange this trio of people. But Elliot Page went to the Met Gala and wore a black Christ. I can't, you know, can we, can we just be honest for a second here? Can everybody be honest? You know, she looked like she looked like a little boy in his first big boy suit. You know, she looked like she was stepping out of the bedroom after mommy dressed him or he and gonna get ready to go to Sears or JCPenney for the family photo. That's what she looked like. I can't say he. I just can't say it's a shake. It's fucking Ellen Page. Just 'cause she went to the doctor and you pointed out what kind of cabs you like and what kind of pets you want. Don't make your boy. I'm sick of this. I know she felt like a boy and she hated looking at female t-shirts on movie sets. She didn't want to get her body into a female T-shirt. He used to make a physically ill, listen, I don't know what to tell you. I just, I can't, I think a lot of this is a mental defect. I just do. I do. When you see Caitlyn Jenna, do you think that's a very well grounded person? I certainly don't. I think a lot of people are with me. I mean, is that what Ellen Page is transition? Is this what she was looking to do? Did she want to look like Elliot? Is this the guy she wanted to be? Did she want to become a 7th grade boy? Because that's what she looked like. If she did, then that surgeon needs some great PR because he's wonderful.
"ellen" Discussed on The Naked Parent podcast
"Naked in both come to the naked parent. Podcast my name's chad. I'm your host today and forever as far as we know and today on the show. We have alan hunte from mesa arizona. Who is a wife. Mother of two a nursing student and she is navigating the autism world and become an advocate for her son and others with a asd. Welcome to the show. Ellen hi thank you for having me. Thank you for being here. You have two children. What are the ages of your children. Tell my son is four and a half and he'll be five in october and my daughter is two and a half and she'll be three in january and your sons on the spectrum at the correct yet. When did you see something that looks different to you. So our first indicator that something wasn't quite right was basically just the no speech. My son is very social has very little boundaries. Always enjoys being hugged Never uncomfortable around strangers and so in very smiley. That was something that the petersen always asked is a well he's very stoic. Does not smile a lot now. He's very expressive. It's just really no words and so we started off with that and it was my first child so you already have no idea what you're doing to begin with and now to kind of throw in something. That's not considered normal. It's incredibly stressful in disheartening. And you can't help but question your abilities as a parent. We just went to a winter. Our pediatrician and he's really see really really supportive. And luckily As a really great early intervention program they call the come to your home and they kind of start out with speech therapy just to see if maybe there is a disconnect. All they need to do is find the connection but in beckham's case. That wasn't it. It was autism in so that was a really great introduction into the world of just developmental delays in special needs. Just very smooth and gradual. I i feel like definitely one of the lucky ones. Where i've had really good luck with people who have cared for my son and who have listened to me. One of the things that breaks. My heart is hearing experiences of other parents who haven't felt very supported and it's definitely something that needs to change totally. How did you react. I mean most of us are just devastated. The and that's right and and it's okay to be devastated. And i love that. You use that word because i feel like a lot of times. Our children can't help who they are. And that's never something that i wanted to ever make my son feel as understood more that i was upset with who he was. Because that's not the case. I really think the devastation comes from just a disrupt in plans when you have children and you're holding them in your arms for the first time you're imagining. All of the possibilities of their life going to college getting married doing all of these wonderful things. In anything it's not even autism anything that disrupts that it can be even as small as a broken leg and they won't be able to run as well as they could it something as small as that. It's devastating because it breaks up a life plan. I had a friend whose son was recently diagnosed. And she's like. I just feel selfish when i cry and i'm like please don't don't go selfish that you cry. I actually think that it just means that you care so much. And i think a lot of what keeps parents from accepting a diagnosis that i is denying themselves that time to feel whatever you need to feel because it's not the part of the acceptance is the morning of life that is essentially passing away. Yeah it's heavy and doesn't work out for anybody any parent out there but it is. It is an expectation. We have to unpack that. It was hard for me to unpack into lose the saturday soccer. Whatever to lose the family vacation that you know were envisioning end. It is what it is. I'm so glad that you found good support because the difference between good support and not good support so huge absolutely and with me. You know. I didn't grow up in the most stable of environments than in. I've had my own struggles throughout my life and so i find that i'm fairly adoptable. It's when i was looking for the diagnosis. I was kind of waiting for it to happen. I always had the inkling that again A doctor time. We always just waiting for that. My husband was the one who struggled with it. The most was in denial. The most and it got to a point in our marriage where i felt very alone in my own experience and it was hindering. The kind of advocate. I wanted to be for my son. Because i had this other obstacle of a man that i love very much but who has now created himself to be an obstacle and i remember the one night that i finally kind of just broke down and told them i. What is the problem. It was the day that my son's speech therapist had she's like i can't diagnose but i am fairly sure that your son is autistic. You know those words. Break your heart. And i wanted to cry but i knew that it was coming but when my husband heard it he was just angry and i couldn't understand that i hadn't been angry at that point. I was sad. But i never been angry and and so i just didn't understand that in. He finally kind of broke down. And just said. I don't want anyone to think that he stupid and that set by gus handed still really gets me because yeah like that. Yes that that might happen. We can't say that might not happen. He are my encounter. Somebody just really ignorant and they might say that it's like but artistic does not mean stupid. It doesn't and that's something within him that he needed to heal that. Ignorance and ignorance isn't always hateful sometimes. It's just you're just saying right you just don't know and so it's your job to know and we know our son isn't stupid and the people who love him know that he's not stupid and he. He knows he's not stupid. This isn't what it is when a professional says we believe. Your child is autistic. They're not at all speaking about his intelligence. They're just talking about how his brain is fire differently. And so once my husband kinda got over that he became a really great advocate. And we've only had a couple of times with an it's funny it's really just. Uc older generation people who deal with kids autism. They're very uncomfortable. And it's okay to be uncomfortable. I'm not hurt when someone is uncomfortable. Because i can remember the times when i was in high school. And you see people in in arizona. They have a best buddies program and those are the kids who are in special education in best buddies. You can form relationships. And i remember. I was always so uncomfortable. Being around these kids with autism developmental.

But and magicians like you mentioned harry anderson who cut their teeth on the streets. I did not know that was your background. How long were you on the street about two years. And then when you start getting really good down the street you're crowds start to get really enormous and I got arrested Every weekend for obstruction because my crowds would go out into the street and as soon as they stepped out on the street the cops were laying and they would arrest me so i had to stop doing that and at the time. Their comedy clubs who are just starting out in their holy city. Zoo in san francisco is open. And and so i moved my show indoors and started doing nightclubs and at that time. It was dana.

The Life of Bridget 'Biddy' Mason
"Mason was born on august fifteenth eighteen eighteen somewhere near hancock county georgia because biddy was born into slavery. The circumstances of her childhood are mostly unknown. But we know. She was sold to a family of enslavers mississippi by young adulthood. These new enslavers were robert. And rebecca smith farmers who made bitty look after their children tend to their livestock work the fields and act as a nurse and midwife for the family during this time he gave birth to three daughters of her own ellen and harriet. When robert smith converted to the new mormon faith he decided to pack up his family and moved to salt lake city with a group of other mormons. Of course biddy and the rest of the people. Robert enslaved were forced to come to in eighteen forty seven. The group traveled over fifteen hundred miles in three hundred wagon caravan across multiple states to get to utah bitty set up camp for the smiths cooked all. The food heard the cattle and acted as midwife all while taking care of her own three daughters though utah was still part of mexico at the time the smith family settled into. What would later become salt lake city. But soon robert smith decided he wanted to seek greener pastures again. This time in san bernardino california biddy. The smith family and the rest of their enslaved workers settled down near the santa ana river and set up a prosperous cattle business. There was just one problem for robert smith. Slavery was illegal in california. Robert tried to conceal this fact from the people. He had enslaved but the american civil war was brewing back. East and slavery was the major topic of the day. It was looking more and more likely that bitty would end up free at. The smith stayed in san bernardino so instead of allowing that to happen. Robert plotted to move the whole family to texas and to trick biddy into coming along
"ellen" Discussed on Women and Crime
"So i'm gonna give you a flipside example here because one that comes to my mind is the opposite and this was the jennifer levin murder in central park in nineteen eighty nine by robert chambers. The preppie murder. Kim preppie murder case and this was completely opposite. The media went to great lengths to establish him as this young handsome gentlemen. Who would never have done. You know anything harmful and to establish her. As kind of i think like a a loose girl it would go into the park so i think they victimized her and it wasn't until later on when a video leaked of him making fun of breaking her neck or killing her that the media turned on him but in the beginning. They treated him like you know he could do no wrong so that would be my example. That's really interesting to turn that around because usually we see it more when the media is trying to establish the guilt before defendant has their day in court but they also they get victims characters a lot when you see women who are victimized of sex crimes. I agree excellent. Thank you so much for that question. Then we have a question from thomas. Thomas wants to know what are some of your favorite podcasts. Listen to true crime related or not. Gosh amy's guy i mean. Do i even need to say my favorite podcasts armchair expert on like god armchair expert with dax shepard and when he does experts on experts. He brings in experts. Obviously and it's so funny but it's also such intelligent conversation. He so vulnerable. I love that podcast. I hope you are listening. Dax i love you. I also love work. Life with adam grant one. So he's an organizational psychologist and he is brilliant. To tell you the truth. I used to listen to only true crime. But since i do my own crime podcast. I don't listen at your crime anymore. I wish i could say the same on opposite you. What are you listening me. Obsessed with true crime podcast. I would say one of my favorite ones is shattered souls by karen smith she a former forensic investigator and she talks about her cases that she handled and how she processed that crime scene. And you know how go into court was and she has a really great delivery and she gives her victims real dignity. I think she's incredible. So i love that one. I think Why i'm like i'll i'll listen to tons of like datelines and whatnot just because i always liked that format. I like smart louis. Oh yes that's a good thing. Do you know really because that's started with armchair expert because jason bateman was one of his first guests and it was one of the best interviews i've ever heard i actually do know that and i appreciate it and i do like dax also and i also like James got me into for news. No agenda oh yeah no absolutely love no agenda. I feel like. I really going to be informed them on the news and not be like persuaded or sold. You know idea. Listen to the daily. Also which i know. Some people think has an agenda. Which might but my go-to news. I understand all right. Thanks for the great question thank you. And then lastly we have latasha question so she had a couple of questions and they're also interesting so our first question is talking about how a child's brain develops witnessed violence or go through traumatic events. So this could be hours of conversation. This is a huge topic. A whole course. The whole course what we can say. Well what i'll try to say in a nutshell is that trauma in early childhood. Ken disrupt individual's attachment we talk about attachment disorders. All the time. There could be cognitive. Delays there can be impaired. Emotional regulation could also lead to some general anxiety social withdrawal depression and we know all of these are also related to crime so this goes back to the victimization the the link between victimization and criminal offending..

"Luckily there has been renewed interest in the case. Because just this past. January of twenty twenty. One as i mentioned in the intro at marxist tenure anniversary. I think we'll see things moving forward a little bit. I mentioned about that civil suit. That was filed. That was back in october. Two thousand and nineteen but just the past. Last year january twenty twenty it proceeded passed the motion to dismiss stage so the trial is set to begin in twenty twenty one. Which is this year. okay. Yeah wow that's something to keep us updated on. Yeah if and when this trial does occur we will for sure do a follow up and provide an update as things develop in the meantime. What can you do to bring justice for this family. There is a facebook. Page in allen's honor called justice for ellen and at this point there's over twenty thousand supporters and most people go to that page can then sign a change dot org petition calling for this case to be reopened so i urged people to go to the facebook page. Go to change dot org and add your name to this petition. I'm gonna go to this petition. I'm i don't this case is to me. It's just clearly a homicide. And i'm not saying who committed the homicide because i think it could have been someone else it doesn't have to be necessarily fiance but this is not a suicide so please go out if you can. You know research this and if you feel the same way we do go to this. Petition sign amy. Thank you so much for this really intriguing case. I really hope to hear some updates in the future right and we have some questions today. Meghan questions from the patrons all right all right so julia says what case you think. The media has most hijacked in regards to the narrative as in the guilt was one hundred percent established before the defendant ever had a day in court. How good question julia. I love this question. Because i talk about this all the time in my class. You cannot listen to media because they as she says have a narrative and it's not always correct meghan central park five case absolutely. Do you remember what the media did to those poor. Young boys i do. Actually i thought that was terrible front. Page every newspaper in new york wolf. Pack preying on this woman. This team gang rapes a jogger in central park teens. Were wild and out. They just want you remember. What trump did no. He took out a whole page in. I believe it was the new york. Times don't quote me. And he said bring back the death penalty for the central park jogger perpetrate. Actually now that you said. I did remember it. Yeah they definitely did and it turns out they were innocent. They were innocent. That's that's a really good example. What about you. what are you thinking..

"Any scene of a death should always be first viewed through the lens of homicide and then if the evidence says suicide you don't ever start with suicide and then go home side. No i don't. I don't think well unless i start with either Usually you just collect the evidence like the crime scene people would collect basically all of the evidence and then come to the conclusions later on it. Sounds like big quickly jumped to before having all the evidence and a proper investigation so yes you can conclude suicide i but it should be after with after a thorough investigation. Meghan who's who. We always look at i. If someone is suspected of the i mean the spouse the partner you know whoever is closest to the victim. Of course. you don't want to blame anyone but we know that's the place to start start there and it's a process of elimination after this but it seems like the police just took his word. As fact regarding the events of the day of course they did have some of the key. Fob data and some of the security and the witnesses but none of it eliminates the possibility that sam wasn't telling the whole truth about seventy friends or family and the police department great question. I couldn't buy much his uncle's a lawyer. Okay i'm like i. I'm right there with you. Meghan okay so just a few days later. The police announced that they were now putting cause of death beckett. Suicide what this conclusion they say was mostly due to the peculiar circumstances and there not being any evidence of an intruder evidence of an attack and no signs of a struggle based on ellen not having any defensive wounds so they really hung their hat on the fact that the apartment was locked from the inside with that latch lock and that ellen was home alone during the time that her fiance was out the gym and therefore no one else is in the apartment with her and the latch. Lock is his story so we only know that again from it's only based on his version of events. They really took it. As fact i'm confusing. There was also a lack of any physical evidence on the body. That could point to there being another person there. There was no potential assailants. Dna the dna that they found on ellen and on the blade was her own. But isn't that suspicious because shouldn't sam. Cna beyond her an on they shared this kitchen and like the fact that his dna is not..

"So he starts banging on the door and he starts texting ellen and this goes on for about twenty two minutes and we have. We know what has tech say. Because it's in their reports this tech start by saying hello opened the door. what are you doing. I'm getting pissed. Hello you better have an excuse. What the fuck at You have no idea. I mean i understand being aggravated because i would be as well but that'll sounds like Threatening and a lot of people felt that way meghan. I'm gonna disagree. Because i think that let's just give him the benefit of the doubt. You're having a shitty day. You went to the gym for only half hour. Maybe we're not really into it. You just wanna go home. You want to relax. And you're thinking what is she on the phone. Why did she do this okay. So it's weird. Like why wouldn't he get worried. Why'd he go so quickly to anger. But who who knows maybe. She had a habit of doing this. And they've spoken about it before who it's hard to say either way. He did not have an answer after these twenty two minute texts so he goes downstairs to the security guard in the building to ask if the security guard can help him break into the apartment and the security guard said nope cannot do that because that's a liability okay so sam proceeds upstairs and he breaks into the apartment by kicking down the door. Wow i thought it was gonna call. Locksmith okay now he kicks down that door okay and we can talk about whether how easy it is to kick down a door and i wouldn't have thought so but okay. Yeah sam breaks into the apartment and he is met by a brutal and horrific site. Now when you walk in this apartment you open the door and you have a view straight into their kitchen and what he sees is ellen on the kitchen floor. She is propped up against the counter with her legs out in front of her a clean white towel in her hand. And there is blood everywhere. Ellen was fully clothed in a hooded sweatshirt. Sweat pants and boots behind her. On the counter there was a strain or fruit with freshly cut oranges. There were also some blueberries and there were to clean nice in the sink. Okay there was no blood outside the kitchen. There was just blood around her zero signs of a struggle. This includes no defensive wounds which will talk more about. She was very clearly deceased when she was found megan she had at least twenty stab wounds. Her body oh my god to her head her neck her chest her abdomen. This varied from nicks too deep punctures just alone on the back of her neck. There were ten stab wounds on the back of her neck on the back of her neck. And we're going to talk a lot more about these injuries because they're very central to this case but let's just talk about what happens next so sam calls nine one one at six twenty two pm. This was around forty minutes from the time he supposedly found her some reports e called his mom and his uncle. I i don't know what to do with this information. I don't know how true it is. Identity see it in the police report with my own eyes. So i don't wanna put too much weight on that judge into taliban later. Okay all the circumstance. Nine one. One dispatcher instructed..

"Yeah you know. I think that Criticisms of alan light have been going on her entire lifetime and walter ray wrote a book way back in the eighties called the white lie. And if you want to see an example of anger you know. He absolutely lashed out at her and exposed to our over plagiarism. And but but he was extremely angry in he. He was so mad because he preached using her as the source of his sermons and then in his old age he found out holy toledo. The woman blood drives virtually everything. I was quoting and in. He said he had this incredible anger about him That hasn't been the case for me. Way back in the seventies. i was fully aware of ellen white's plagiarism. And all these kinds of things Would i explain in. The book is that there have been so many books written. That are hagiography about ellen. White you know. They're making her this ridiculous saint and saying all kinds of ridiculous things. That aren't true about her and how she was. God's only profit instrument all these visions were true. And i mean it's just gross hagiography and so i'm not trying. I've written a whole bunch of stuff on ellen white before this book. Doctoral dissertations master's thesis people can look at my work. And and what i try to do is look at a particular topic when i write a book and the topic that i'm exploring for the first time in this book is are all the accusations of pathology and fraud these kinds of things that have been leveled against dylan white throughout her lifetime and after her lifetime do they have. Will they stand. Up to historical and psychological scrutiny. So i'm going to focus on the topic of pathology and fraud and in these accusations that have been made. That's what i'm doing in the book. I'm not trying to write this balanced book. That looks at every good thing. She may have done in her lifetime. Talk about the fact that good things came from her certain certainly but I'm trying to explore this exact question of are the accusations of pathology and fraud and all these things leveled against your will.

If i had elon's underwear please send me ellen's underwear so at first i'm like. Wow she's got a real big fan over here and then i'm thinking. Is this some weird thing where someone thinks. This is used underwear. I'll really wear these newer. And then lenders and i had to keep going back to new. I think she really is just a fan. And so then. I looked into shipping prices. And they didn't shift to this weird little island.

"Is it gonna be on demand. Yes yes god love and just like love and monsters actually pretty much the same streaming You know check out love and monsters and army of one on I tunes amazon. voodoo Yes amazon prime is what i just said so many different streamers and actually if you go to my social media at allen holman on twitter or instagram as well as allen holman official on facebook. I'm constantly posting updates Where where you can find find these films. Well it's great your your hardest. Obviously as an actor but also as a as a stunt performer and martial artist and you know to combine those two more credit to yet and you certainly have had a career where you pay played some memorable women already and i definitely want to see this one and and see your take on matrix for well. Thank you so much. I appreciate it. There's a lot of hard work. And you know i appreciate that. You know people working at their craft and doing everything you know if you want to be a physical careers. You have to do certain things to be able to do that. And you're you're probably in a small group that can do both and and also produce right as well so we're power to you. There's great to do your own projects yet. It's a you have to love it though. It's so unbelievably challenging. And there's you know Job security no job security either But that's part of. I don't know i guess for like minded individuals. It's part of the thrill knowing that it is an uphill battle And you do even if you try your absolute hardest. You still may not accomplish what you want to accomplish. But like i said before when you do get to see a final products come through to fruition. That originally a you know was was conjured up in your brain as an insane idea. Then you just keep keep fighting to tap. It really sidhu interesting. They were goes diverse. Few jobs where you can point to something and you have an example of your work that everybody can see. Most jobs aren't like that. So the fact that you have something like that. I think of makes it even more special because you can say this is what i did. You can see it right there. So i also think it's a reminder you say to yourself why am i doing this absolute worst. That's what people don't see. I mean even as we speak during this. The past two weeks of the holiday i mean. I've i've had to put myself on tape for auditions. they don't they. Don't care that you're celebrating christmas. They don't care if you're tired. They don't care if you don't have time they just don't care and i can't tell you. How many weddings in in baby showers and birthdays and everything across the board. That i've missed because of of because of jobs or how many times. I've had to fly back home for a callback. Just not be asked back again. At like the the i would say not hundreds. It's probably passed a thousand auditions and tries where i was never seen again. They never for whatever reason. That's that's what people don't see like the disappointment. The heartbreak You spend more time hearing no than you ever hear yes. It's just persevering through that i hear you. I really card guarded really crazy. I think you've made lightly off. I think you have to be. I'm not even kidding. Do if you see the people that i've company with my husband included. We are certainly a little left of center. I appreciate the work you do. And the and the and the effort you put in and and and really gladdy arguing it and there's a lot of things to look forward to that you're going to be doing matrix and army of one's available now and it's great to see a good a good kick ass like to see that too by the way they do. It's good action. We don't care who it is as long as they can do it. And that's that's what i wanted to accomplish this that you're with our have won. It's that you know halfway through the film you're like this person is really believable and really actually kicking ass on screen not. Oh despite. she's a woman exactly. It says something like. Let me tell you listeners. Women that really great job despite being a woman. I'm like a great job despite being manly no that is so condescending and so it really is changing which it is it is it is it is well eliot. Thanks so much for your time. It's been an absolute pleasure talking to you and talking about your work. Army of one is out there folks. I think it's worth seeing so check it out. Thank you so much for having me. I really appreciate it. I'd love to have you back some time. Especially after matrix fours and we can say more. Yeah no absolutely you know where to find me. yes i do. Thank you again and definitely looked for elian. An army of one and matrix for stay safe have a great new year and hopefully there is a light at the end of the tunnel. It's not a train. So good luck to you and hang in there. Thank you and happy new year. Everyone happy new year. That's right thank you all for listening to sci-fi talk until next time. Take care hi. This is don davis.

"That's it's just for some for somebody who wants to do all of their own stuff. You just have to keep that machine ready in the way. I can just speak for what i witnessed in the way. Chad sal ski likes to shoot his he. He wants his performer. To do everything. And i think he really learned a lot of that from lana. 'cause lawn is the same way. She wants her performers to do everything. And then you put the double in there will not in my case unfortunately for The others you put the dublin. You know you edit around what you can. But that's what made john wick. So groundbreaking is that you're able to do these big waters so you you can't cut because it's all one scene and it's not. It's not a time. You see a sequence where they push in close and they kind of like we call it can. That's to hide the bad choreography. There you go the bad execution of the choreography and you'll see this a lot in tv too. You don't get much rehearsal time and anytime you see a lot of the marvel films. That's where it's like cut cut cut cut cut cut cut cut cut and your brain can't actually comprehend. What has what is happening in. The action is because they're trying to hide how bad it is so just little trick the trade if you find yourself like not really understanding the concept of the action. It's because they don't want you to. It's because it's just not shot well and that was something that i wanted to apply to army one like. No i wanna shoot these in a bunch of wides so that you can see. It's clearly the performers doing it and you're more invested when you see the performance doing the action which is why people are so fascinated with john wig. It's like you walk out of there. You're like is an action foam. I've seen so many of those. So why did i really like this one. And it's like you don't realize it but it's because you were more invested in this performer. In this actor actually doing their action So if anything it's like a subconscious thing you're more it it's a. It's a more believable scenario. You know you're i heard you're developing a couple of films like i guess match i guess working titles or max yeager. I guess one into just for the sake of our conversation and you're actually in you are involved in the writing of that. Yes others several that we we have in development right now And i of course love the action drama genre. But i i love infusing comedy into things as well. I feel like you can be a funny bad ass to. And so now that we're establishing like women can be kick ass we can also be funny like when earle's money so There's there's a an action comedy series that. I'm working on as well that i'm collaborating with Some former a former classmate of mine actually Which will be close. Look about at the moment. But i just going oh hopefully going to be a very productive. Twenty twenty one. We'll see what productions will be like going into the new year but it certainly has Thrown some monkey wrenches into the machinery. Because we don't realize is there's like a twenty percent increase in contingency By that is like you're paying a dollar twenty for something that normally would cost a dollar. Obviously like big crowd scenes are problematic. and just the time the opportunity cost of getting all of your cast and crew tested in order to enable a safe environment. It's it's a lot. It's a lot i mean. Even people taking their masks off to have craft service in other spent a lot of controversy around that like why do they. Why are they allowed to sit down outside. Or what have you and outdoor restaurants are. I'm fully supportive of restaurants. In their businesses. And i'm like shrimp. I truly do believe in like outdoor dining et cetera. However on a film set everyone's getting tested three four. Some comes five days a week. Some sets test twice a day. Which i think is a little bit overkill They also get their temperature. Tested every time you walk on the set. So anytime you do have a film crew That is congregating in an outdoor scenario. Have been vetted in a sense from a medical standpoint. So that's that's why like on the outside it's like oh why is everyone allowed to sit down and eat outside. Well they've been tested up the wazoo and everyone's put into separate pods At least this is how we did Matrix where you have to make up departments you have to hear departments. You have to Separate offices for production one side test positive. The other pod can still function. Well i think about think about how much extra money and time so a lotta investors are like why do what am i getting involved in here. Why why now. You know exactly and You know so. That's why it's it's a bit uncertain. I really do for c. A lotta production's going going elsewhere sadly released for now. So it'll be it'll be interesting. I mean no one is new ground for everybody. So it'll it'll be interesting for me to see where this goes because it's continuously oscillating like we shot in europe. We shot in berlin and there is so few cases there but now there are. They actually went into lockdown justice league grabbing. Thank on a bit even that. Can it can change on a dime literally within days. You can go from shooting seamlessly to being completely. Shut down as what this is. What people don't realize like on On matrix we shot some of it in san francisco right before the shutdown And then was like five months of downtime because of the pandemic so what. People don't realize like all of the warehouses that that are holding the sets and the costumes in everything. You still have to pay for that. So a lot of productions such as Glow as an example. It was doing really well yet. It got pull that got a canceled because they could no longer afford to pay every single month and it actually didn't become cost effective. So that's why when. I didn't mean to get into this whole like clarify this saturday. We're all facing here you know. It's it's gray so when when people are like. Why did they cancel my favorite show. It was so good and did really. Well yeah but they had to pay millions of dollars every single month that they're never gonna see back so unfortunately you have producers such as myself who crunch the numbers and they're like even if we do go back in the fall we will never be able to recoup our money and we're butter showing a loss insurance all that. Yeah it's sad and this is the new world that that we live in right now. So it'll be. I'm keeping optimistic doing my best all right l. army of one where we're can we see. It has already out on.
