"It's also how you treat a social are tied treat other people. So how are you treating your stakeholders. Let's say you're in a in an area like maybe on indian reservation. How are you treating them. What is your. What is your process around working in the community. All of those kind of things fall into the social and then governance part is where you're actually showing your committed because you have a physical policy in place to basically support the environmental and social part within your company in externally. So that's where they actually post people actually post. What's there How do they go about finding board members. How do they go about doing the risk management plan. What's their policy on bribery. In what's her policy on indigenous groups Those are the kinds of things. But it's actually the policy even to the point of what's your policy on cybersecurity because that's really becoming an issue in the midstream and oil and gas sector after we had the the pipeline disruption recently. So it's the actual policies that support the essence and your company to make sure that everything's working so to navigate through this what to me you have just described as as a very complicated maze And you start dating. You know you mentioned sassy g. gr. I and and in all these other and all this stuff is out there. And nothing is is is really Particularly standardized which is to something like for example. American troy minced. Toot you know years ago. You know they kind of They became the you know. The poster child for standardization and everybody you know followed it and continues to do so today. So what happens is If you're not a exxon mobil or or you know bp or or or somebody like that A small operator probably needs some unlike new global environmental. Because that's that's that's actually what you do that's actually What you're passionate is is to work with these companies who don't have all the resources and exxon has and instead you bring to bear. That for them is that right. That's right. That was really when i looked at where i was going ahead next in my career new global To me has value proposition in what it was was the balance between the technical world. I like still and then the strategy in this kind of esp complex world in that for a small company or even midsize size. They just don't. Have you know one hundred people working this. We can provide the expertise to do a greenhouse gas baseline study and then walk them through. Okay now that you have that. Here's maybe some things that you should think about where if you want to improve your emissions in the future. Here's changing out pneumatics from a highly Bleed but also a lot of what happens in the es g. is is as we eventually move towards something that will be standard because that's where we really are headed Are you are you collecting the right data for how you might wanna record in which report you wanna use. So we kinda help. Maybe looked at like a three year. Plan so something that you don't have to do tomorrow and people get overwhelmed. Because they're hearing all the jargon that's coming in all these big companies like exxon and everything are doing all these all this stuff and putting out hundred page reports. You don't have to do that..

Savvy is the standard for accounting. It's accounting boards or can't remember exactly but that standard is completely fixed on investors. So they've went out in they've created seventy seven different individual metrics in frameworks or save it. When you say they who who who did this so that so the board underneath savvy basically went out reached out to a whole plethora of different people in created this metric said these are the most material things four accompany in oil and gas.

They came out with seventy seven of them are are these pretty well. embraced or a recognized by companies. Or you know what kind of any kind of regulatory authority or anything. I mean you know like Like you know Api has standards and either follow those standards or you don't get the api approval for your detroit now voluntary all. You're seeing in the background. You're seeing some of these frameworks are starting to align to each other and merge together Frameworks standards and you're also seeing like let's say for oil and gas industry. You're seeing that. That people are gravitating to certain. So savvy is definitely one because it's much more specific to our industry. They have one for midstream. They have one for willing gas.

Es g What is it what is even. Es g stand for the be some folks out there who aren't certain ese stands for environmental social governance.

I met zabihullah. Mujahid taliban spokesman. The united states is evacuating and it is taking out americans who worked with us forces but not everyone is going to be able to make it out. Will you let those people leave in the future. Can you guarantee their safety no autism. We don't want our countrymen to go to america whatever they have done in the past. We have given amnesty. We need young educated professionals for our nation. But what if they want to leave. It's their choice. What would you say to women. Afghan women who are terrified. They our sisters.

Taliban Takes Full Control of Afghanistan
"Chief foreign correspondent. Richard engel as you probably know. He has spent big portions of the last two decades of his life in afghanistan during the war. There richard also just weeks ago reported on some of the last fierce fighting by elite afghan commando units fighting against taliban forces. We know that was some of the last fighting like that. That there was in afghanistan and richard. Was there in the middle of it but now that the taliban have been able to take control of. I all the provincial capitals and then the whole country including kabul without fighting at all not in a military operation but just in what appears to have been a negotiated surrender by afghan government forces and the afghan military all over the country as the taliban have now walked in to kabul without firing a shot. Richard has been there reporting around the clock as they have taken over again. As i mentioned we have been battling technical difficulties as you might imagine for some obvious reasons. But i do believe we've got our dear friend. Richard engel now joining us live. Richard thank you. I'm sorry to have you up at this hour. Thank you no problem at all. Comes with the territory with your show seriously seriously. I have bad technical. Gremlins karma as you know from the very beginning richard. Let me just ask you how you are right now. What this last few days has been like for you with all that you've seen in kabul over the years and what you're expecting over the day that is newly donning right now where you stand. So the taliban are spreading their wings they are establishing more and more of their control. They're trying to establish a government. The first two days in power they were coming out of the woodwork. So to speak they were battling lueders because that that happened here there was a collapse of law and order when ashraf ghani.

Professor Paul Kengor's Reaction After Reading 'American Marxism'
"To say Okay, Okay. You brought this professor on to sell your book? My question is this and you know, I didn't My question is this And I asked people those who read my books. You finished the book. And what did you think Front of mine? He's on this something about this American Marxism or Well, you know, it's just another book on Mark. So what was it front of mine? I'm just curious. I hadn't asked your friend. I didn't ask you this now I want to know. Just tell the truth. Yeah, well, I'd say that that you know, just while you have classical Marxism and would be based on Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, and then you have Marxism today. And these guys are all again in the 21st century like they were in the 20th likely were in the 19th. I mean, these guys are truly radical revolutionaries. They they are trying to take their trying to redefine human nature. Human society the way that people look at one another and they, by the way, they breed contempt like you say, and they pit people against one another. They're trying to hammer all of us into an entirely new paradigm of human behavior. In other words, they are truly radical revolutionaries. They're trying to change the very idea of what America is. And what made America great. Do you?

"That many pro-trade economists have to report is that from their view. And i think you alluded to it earlier. The report near view sort of endorses over trader withdrawal been called sort of a soft protectionism. And that will. That may be appealing politically. It will in the long term be self-defeating it will actually undercut the position the middle class and economists at posing as a piece in foreign affairs recently which talks about efforts to try to preserve manufacturing jobs is engaging in style show. How do you respond to those criticisms. I think they're misreading report. A if you really look at the report carefully. It takes pains to note nanny. Places that many of the people we spoke to have a strong faith and belief in the benefits of economic openness about benefit of trade. The need to engage in the global economy Huge opportunities for communities to engage productively. And and to succeed and did not hear from lots of communities that they wanted to be closed off to trade. That's not what we heard. And it's not what what we reported in the state level reports are in the final report. But i would say trade isn't inherently redistributive process right. That is what it does to not be willing to engage or to neglect to discuss. Deeply him thoughtfully what those distributional impacts are and help prepare communities to meet them. I think is one thing that has gotten foreign economic policy community into a little bit of trouble. And i agree with that. Actually when he talks about the need to be thinking about adjustment. Much more broadly than just trade related. I mean how do you really. Why'd you pick out trade losses and not be thinking about technical change and other aspects of different kinds of economic shocks that affect people in this way and i do think the administration is looking to do things like expand access to healthcare to make it more portable trying to enhance support like before participation through. You know smart childcare and more generous benefits in various ways but would be surprised to see you know some things so labor mobility yen an economic mobility generally sort of an understanding that these general policies are probably a better rate ago and very very targeted trade. Just misses which. I agree with him. That i don't really think that's going to solve the broader problem. That american middle class families face watching some people right I think martin wolf in the financial times. Certainly push this line of argument. That what the united states really needs to do in the face of globalization is not withdraw from the world but to provide a better social safety net net part of the challenge. We face is that we don't have the kind of social safety net. You need it so the economy can remain vigorous in innovative and people get hurt and because they get hurt look for something to blame and they tend to point to trade is being the main culprit and that leads politicians to not want to endorse trade which then leads the united states..

"Economics is a way to build military security power so economics was just a base upon which to project power and there was also sort of a strong sense of defining the us interest in terms of free markets expanding market access ultimately in the eighties nineties. goes the interest of american companies abroad. Then we should've segue into things. Like general interest in the prosperity and using trade and economic openness a pathway to prosperity is only until the very late strategies. Did you see any recognition of distributional consequences. Conversation in the united states about jobs stagnating incomes links that people are beginning to make publicly between the difficult hollowing out of the middle class the united states and some of the pressures they're facing in a global economy so seeing that by way of saying you know the the document report was really kind of trying to move the conversation into one where we were as a foreign policy community trying to grapple a little bit more directly with seven the distributional issues. How does foreign policy advance things like inclusive growth agenda. How does foreign policy advanced job creation. How does it solve the problems. That the american middle class perceives to be in our interests. How do we do. Defense security policy in ways that help to stabilize but for american middle class households from shocks abroad from terrorist attacks from all kinds of different threats. That might be out there so it gets as much a reframing as it is a really detailed policy agenda it also sort of makes the link and the argument that we've tended to see domestic and foreign policy is very separate silos. You mentioned in my bio rain. I spent a bunch of years in national security and then three years is the national intelligence office or as the show. I think i have like one hundred eighty economy. You know there's was to follow abe sada countries countries. Everyone except us like my job. Was everyone except us. When i went to treasury. I had just us and no one else and dichotomy there was really interesting and i was at a fairly senior level both places but i did not have conversations across that i'll right. I really wasn't in either place you know. In terms deleting us macro-analysis had conversations with our foreign policy. Folks were kind of talking about some of the risks that we might be facing nor will be briefing them back on. Mytalk happens at the very senior levels rate of the national security council and the any. But it's not really happening at the next level down probably should be happening more than i also think. For example the fact that the biden administration is leading with a lot of Partly because of covid Situation that they're inheriting right. That are are leading a lot of being economic renewal ideas at home. I think the idea there is that those are in a sense creating a stronger foundation for the us foreign policy community to advanced us interest. Proud people feel more secure at home. If a feel they have a little more mobility a little more opportunity a few more buffers that perhaps the us foreign policy general be a little more agile in coming year. So i think they do see the need to integrate. Foreign and domestic policy is pretty important. So let's talk about this medal. Which is the ills of the american. Middle class are real and well documented but to what extent does foreign policy. However you wish you'd find whether it's narrowly foreign economic policy or more broadly to include everything that we do overseas responsible for those ills. And i will note that the report itself goes on at some length to talk about a variety of domestic factors. That are.

"There was a sense that we needed to understand. Not the american middle class. Thought we should do on specific policy issues but how they defined their own interests and how they saw their economic address affected by to the extent that they could make those connections things going on in washington and then the task force. I think felt strongly that it was our responsibility in some sense to try to draw those linkages a little bit. More clearly to articulate them a little bit better but you fundamentally american power. American interests really have to sit on his foundation right of healthy vibrant dynamic middle-class. And if they did not see the benefits of globalization in action say actually many of them did some reactions to the report have been along the lines of its feels kinda protectionist. It feels a little kinda pulling back from or ambitious foreign policy and maybe questioning kind of global engagement. But that's not really broadly what we heard what we heard was. People generally support and understand. Us needs to remain engaged. Globally it would just like to see the foreign policy and policy stablishment generally manage the downside risks. Some of the transitions in some of the challenges. Little bit better. So i just wanna make sure falling. You hear your assessment. Was that foreign policy played a significant role in the outcome of the twenty sixteen election. I know that's a story. That's often told in washington of a political scientist by training. I think most of the political science research argues that while elections are consequential for foreign policy thousand sixteen being case in point. It's not really the case. That foreign policy matters much for how people vote indeed..

Stop to demonstration but the demonstration was stoked by a public prosecutor which is fraud and not only that it is a a a breaking of the law in civil servant your health to higher standards especially when you're public prosecutor so Returning to tables and this is like a boxing match you try to faint so the other or your opponents overreaches and that's when they are week so we're not letting go of this case we're finding a cases against them personally. So lightweight the judges and with the doctors we also have to take these people to court and to hold them accountable for their crimes. These these are all examples of the the strong arm of the regime. This is what i think. President truman has mentioned in his speech about the military complex. We're seeing such a cartel Acting here as well but now it's much more the media big tech big pharma political complex. It's not so much about oil guns and steel as it is about control surveillance information. It's not really about health as at it is absolutely not about health. Because if you talk about health you talk about immune systems. You talk about healthy living. You talk about social well-being and all of those subjects are known subjects in this crisis. What has been the public's reaction to the work that you're doing it's mixed because a lot of people believe the narrative of what the state broadcasts Are pushing out aso. So that propaganda is working to some extent but on the other hand. A lot of people are Are getting more aware so that they see that what is brought to them as the truth or the narrative is a is a fake story so there is some colorization of the people who are really favor of the work that we were doing under people that are really against it and to try to avoid this. But that's not an easy job is not to retaliate. Is not to scare people into Fearing the government or to fearing vaccines but to constantly come back to the nuanced scientific debates to come back to debate on ethics to point out the flaws in the logic to point out the falls dilemmas and there is no quick fix. There is no shortcut in tooth an awareness..

"Of june. And then we sold large-scale scale infiltration and and police brutality and that we have never seen before in homes we saw in the cover though officers trying to incite violence in trying to beat people into fighting back now. What was so significant. Is that a lot of people. Fill all of this and then the second step on the twentieth of august where we clearly saw avengers driving up a vehicle than thugs with wit mosques and clubs jumped out and started hitting people which were sitting on the ground peacefully. Protest protesting will that is an absolute no-go. They were not recognizable as police officers yet. They were. They didn't give any warning and they were using violence against peaceful protesters. Now of course this went viral and we forced the mare in a in an event later on because we saw this pattern Continuing as soon as mosk were reaching a critical points and that is around ten thousand people and we saw this enormous police brutality so every two months it was building up again. And then you saw this this Medieval style of clubbing people until they were lifeless on the ground so we were very lucky that nobody has died yet but a lot of people were very severely injured and with head wounds with broken ribs which punctured lungs and so we are pressing. John is against these police officers individually but it has to be very clear is that this is not a badly trained police. This is what we can best described as brown shirts. this is an intimidation tactic. Which is coming from. The highest the highest level of government. These people aren't restricted to incite violence to intimidate. And that is one of the goals what we are trying to achieve with filing charges against individual officers so they give up the names of the people that have given these orders because we respect.

You have received quite a bit of coverage for the work that you're doing. Do you think that the media has been fair to you in its representations of your efforts absolutely not so the media does is to legitimize the regime to facilitate the restrictions but also to ridicule the people that are critical Regime and as one of the spokespeople for critical movement against the the restrictions and the lockdowns. I have been ridiculed but also demonized had deckers at my school trying to physically assault so it is a dangerous slippery slope. the media is is growing in. i'm now i'm generalizing. Of course there are still journalists that try to be fair imbalanced but what we see more and more is that these journalists cannot get their pieces published. There is a narrative that has to be a cold now. The narrative concerning people that are critical is in the fulling order extreme riots antisemites racists terrorists and conspiracy lunatics and this is without exception.

Tonight with new airstrikes tonight and tank and artillery fire. Israel says it's targeting hamas and destroying a network of tunnels in gaza.

It could get much worse. Israel has deployed thousands of troops to the gaza border primed for a ground assault but israel for now has held off an invasion instead relying on its iron dome missile defense system to intercept rockets but some are getting through falling indiscriminately and killing. At least eight israelis million in israel had been rushing to bomb shelters but because of the children are traumatized.

Biden orders airstrikes in Syria, retaliating against Iranian-backed militias
"For the first time since he was inaugurated president. Joe biden tonight has ordered. Us military strike the pentagon says. The president ordered airstrikes in syria around six. Pm eastern time this evening. This is the statement that we got announcing the start from pentagon. Press secretary. John kirby he said quote at president biden's direction. Us military forces earlier this evening conducted air strikes against infrastructure utilized by iranian-backed militant groups in eastern syria. These strikes were authorized in response to recent attacks against american and coalition personnel in iraq and to ongoing threats to those personnel specifically. The strikes destroyed multiple facilities located at a border control. Point used by a number of iranian-backed militant groups this proportionate response was conducted together with diplomatic measures including consultation with coalition partners. More on that in a moment The operation sends an unambiguous message. Statement continues president biden will act to protect american coalition personnel quote. At the same time we have acted any deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern syria and iraq. like that statement tonight from pentagon. Press secretary john kirby announcing these us airstrikes eastern syria now in terms of what these air strikes were in response to this month in iraq. There have been three rocket attacks publicly reported in the space of a week the most recent one targeted the us embassy in baghdad. That was three days ago to rockets fired in that attack fell inside the green zone that heavily fortified area around the baghdad embassy there were no injuries From those two rockets on saturday it was four rockets that had hidden air base north of baghdad. That injured one person but last monday it was a more. A more consequential attacked. It was a dozen rockets last monday. That struck the usually peaceful northern iraqi city of bill that killed that attack killed one american civilian contractor and wounded nine other people including several americans at the air bill airport now it has been widely assumed that it was iranian backed militias that were behind these rocket attacks. Iran has denied any direct responsibility but the attacks have been seen in in many quarters as a way of sort of testing. The waters with the new administration should also be noted. That president biden took office just days after the one year anniversary of the us killing. Iran's top revolutionary guard general and a missile strike. Something iran has promised to take retaliation for the other context. That's important here. Of course that the biden administration just a week ago announced that they're ready to hold talks with iran on possibly reentering the nuclear deal that was designed to keep iran from becoming a nuclear power. That was the deal that president obama entered into with iran. That president trump pulled out of as we've been reporting the story trying to understand the scale of these airstrikes night. We have just gotten some tape from the brand new defense secretary. lloyd austin. He spoke with reporters on a flight back to washington. He had been visiting. Us military facilities on the west coast. This was on board the plane back on route to the. Us's coast a target that we would after we know what we get and and we're confident that that target was being used the same shia militia that That conducted the strikes. You're very deliberate about our approach as you would expect this to be You're allowed to it. Occurs the iraqis to investigate develop intelligence and very helpful to us and refining target. You i was season was my recommendation We said a number of times. We will respond At you know on our time line and once again we wanted to be sure that the connectivity and wanted to be sure that can't the right dr sites it was today. Yes issue one defense secretary. Lloyd austin that's tonight we just got in that tape moments ago. Speaking about the first military operation of the biden administration. these airstrikes on iranian backed militias in syria. The administration says they are response to rocket attacks that targeted u s and coalition forces in iraq. You just heard Defense secretary austin there say that it was president who authorized these strikes And he did so this morning per the defense secretary's read out to reporters tonight joining us now. For more is nbc's chief foreign correspondent. Richard engel richard. I didn't expect to have you back on the show so soon after talking with you last night on a totally different matter Joining us on short notice tonight to help us help us through this. Not not a problem. And i was speaking short while ago with a senior. Us official with direct knowledge of this This was a a message to iran and iranian backed militias. According to this official. And the message was that the united states will no longer tolerate harassment will no longer tolerate attacks rocket attacks missiles attacks and particular the attack on your bill of earlier this month was seen as something of a watershed moment so this was a a message. That times have changed that. Even though the president biden wants to negotiate with iran this administration does not want to be bullied does not want to be pushed around is not going to accept the Increased military action that put us personnel and allies at risk. So this was. This was a strong message. It was described to me as the The carrot the stick in the carrot and stick of diplomacy and deterrence that the. Us is offering the carrot. They wanna get back to talks but they also are using the stick for the for the first time today and sending this message. The target that was hit was described as a series of buildings that were used to supply and support these different militia groups. A kind of a border crossing area on the border between syria and iraq. the militias. That operate in this in this area do often cross the border. The fact that the strike took place in syria is also significant. It take some of the pressure off of the government of baghdad. So this was a a very carefully chosen target. It was a calibrated response. Trying to hit specifically the militia that had been targeting the us forces and allied forces and also to send a clear message to iran. That times have changed now. The official said this is also a message to iran and the militias. That things are different than they were. Under the trump administration under president trump and by way. We almost went to war with iran in a very similar circumstance. That that we're in right now. About a year

A Utopian Life - Is It Possible? Experiment vs. Reality
"Well let me start out. By saying that dystopia n- fiction is kind of like science fiction. It's that are happening. That really could maybe perhaps happen. Like a world war or some kind of something that is apocalyptic and so that kind of thing can happen perhaps okay but utopian fiction is the exact opposite and it is something of a perfect world that we want to be in from the merriam webster dictionary we find this definition proposing or advocating ideal social and political schemes and one who believes in the perfection of human society. Well utopias work in two ways walking away from the extreme happiness of a utopia to perhaps find something better. Whatever that is or to walk away from an apocalyptic dystopia in life for the happiness and hope of a utopian life that is better but what is the utopian life. I am careful to note that. It is known that karl marx and frederick engels have studied a utopian way of life to some extent in the form of communism but first let's begin by finding out about what a utopia really is. Well you really is. Happiness and hope perhaps built on someone else's misery or knowing happiness by seeing or imagining the opposite. Well that sounds okay right. A lot of utopian concepts include simplifying. Human life sounds okay to being more in touch with religion or nature. Yep that sounds okay. Social improvement again sounds okay a visionary dreamlike ideal of political and social systems. That sounds okay to well. Utopia is often defined as a place of ideal perfection especially in law's government and social conditions a utopia described as an imaginary remote place. That's right and perhaps it has an impossible ideal of being visionary from the website classical wisdom dot com. I find this ever since there were people and places there has been desire for other different people and ideal perfect places. And what is this website talking about. They're talking about utopia such an important word and it means so much and our society today a word that has its origins and ancient greece which has a translation meeting of no place. Everything is a place but not utopia. Utopia is an imagined place of perfection. Don't forget that it's something that we strive for. Dust being there is no place such as this while writer sir thomas more was a philosophical genius and knew that he must be open to the idea of there being a better place or at least proving that there is no utopia no good place. In other words you see the word. Utopia is greek and was developed and fifteen sixteen. So when coming up with this concept of no place sir. Thomas more was having fun and poking a little fun and playing where the definition of a good place or no place meaning. No place is really perfect. The earliest generic use of utopia was for an imaginary and indefinitely. Remote place like an island kind of the current use of utopia referring to an ideal place or society was inspired by tyler. Moore's description the dreaming of a better world is almost as old as the world itself. We all have that dream even today as humans. We always desire better. Don't we i know i do. Let's look at what some of these concepts of utopia really are well and utopia. There is nothing private anywhere. The doors and the people's houses are open to anyone who wants to enter them the utopians either meals and public and where they all eat is in common place. It is a capital offense to engage in private discussions about public affairs and the business of politics can only be done and public
"Hey welcome to the podcast about politics race and culture from the OC perspective I'M A. And I'm Hutagalung arena. Today, we have a very special guest joining us from yonkers new. York is Jamal Bowman he's the. Democratic nominee for Congress in new. York's Sixteenth District Jamal. To the show. Hello thank you so much for having me. It's great to be here. We don't often speak to you know members, of Congress or potential members of Congress few like somebody maybe unexcited Cossio go. because. You're win like hers was a a really big deal. You defeated Longtime Democratic incumbent Eliot Engel in a huge landslide lead your the likely winner in the twenty twenty general election because you represent a very blue district. So it's really been a super big year for you. Your Primary Win came at the height of the conversation around justice for Black and Brown lives inequity the pandemic. With. It. So really your wind came kind of on the backs of all of that. So. Give us just a quick back story shore. So the back story I guess begins you know being raised by a single mom in the projects along with my three sisters. During the crack cocaine epidemic, which projects I gotTa know which projects Oh Easter projects one hundred, fifteen first avenue in Manhattan. WanNa raise on the. Upper East side East Harlem Section Manhattan went to public schools by entire life lived in the projects in rent stabilized apartments started teaching in nineteen ninety nine in the South Bronx in one of the poorest zip codes in the country, and you clearly can see the inequality the inequity in how wherever you go in a city state or country black and Brown people seem to be suffering more than everyone else. So growing up as a black man in America who has been a victim of police brutality. The first time I was beaten by police was eleven years old and notice I said the first time happen again, the a later on. IOS Eleven hanging out on the street with my friends and being rambunctious in boisterous in doing what kids do and I guess someone may have called the police because we were maybe too noisy a too rambunctious. and. The police came over and tried to live saw curtail us and tell us a comma down. You know we kind of push back in had a few words for them. Next thing I know like I'm being done up against the wall thrones Grou- face dragged all over the floor.

You know think about a potential run for office and why Eliot Engel while I looked at twenty eighteen election and I saw that me thirty thousand registered Democrats in the district actually voted and he won with twenty two thousand votes. Yeah. Some like, wow. This person has making trillion dollar decisions that impact millions of people and he only got twenty two thousand. Volts Yep you look at who supports him right? Who Funds his campaign we're talking big real estate. Yep Big pharmaceutical companies, weapons, manufacturers, hedge fund managers, and every institution that is hurting our community hurting the working class.

"It's brilliant it's A. It is one of the books that helped me through that experience highly recommended. It's not a big book so Those of you who are looking for something to read now when Rene Circumstance where we can't control it it's a it's a great read. But so I I really admire your your philosophy here because it's gotten us through a lot of Challenges in an honorable way and one of them was when you were running across the Sahara and this was a documentary that was made about your run narrative by Matt Damon and called running the Sahara and it was a feat. That was incredibly challenging. And you not only were a runner but you're also a producer new instigated the whole idea. So you had a lot of responsibilities and there was a story you tell about how one day you just realize that you didn't have control can you? Which is really hard for someone who wasn't addict or an addict or has an addictive personality. tell us a little bit about that story and what what we can learn from it because I was inspired when I heard you tell that story. Yeah I appreciate that I mean. It's it's such a crazy thing because I I just had this idea. I didn't have the idea actually someone else at the. It asking this question just off the coffee you know. Have you ever thought about running across the Sahara? And I do like to say that you know words said to us by a stranger in passing can sometimes chains like the entire course of our lives like you. You don't know what's going to come of that. And that's what happened with the Sahara and I started telling people I was going to be the first person ever run across the Sahara and crazy as it is. I got James Maule who is an Academy Award Winning Director and Matt Damon signed all into this thing so I had to academy award winners attacks to a project about running across sand. Very exciting and A year after all this came together I. There was an Senegal West Africa and surrounded by my teammates. We were all regan. Run the whole way. You know a fifteen crew people and Cameron and like all these people and I really did in my imposter syndrome. You know I'm like sitting there going at suckered all of these people out here the Sahara. And we're we're all going to die and you know and and it took about a week but a week into this expedition. We fell apart completely fell apart. It's one hundred and forty degrees every day. It's like my teammates or on these. I've had crew members quit. We run out of food and water. We got lost in sandstorms and I realized that I was approaching this project. This run completely wrong. I was so I felt so much pressure to be successful like everyone's depending are Iran. And that's how I felt. It really wasn't the case. But that's how I felt and I was focused on getting to the finish like all I was GONNA do get to the finish and I recognize. That's not how you get to the finish or you know so on day I woke up and all I thought about was running a marathon one narathorn Mike before lunch and I took a break at lunch and all focused on with running a second marathon before dinner and after dinner I lay down on my thin foam that and I stared up at a billion stars. I gave. Thanks for the fact that I was out there at suffering and alive and having this experience and the lesson I learned in. That was the one day time. It's this whole lesson of recovery right you could. I could only run the miles that were right in front of me and I was killing myself focusing on the problems that we're going to come the next day or when we hit the next border crossing or win this happened and when that happened and and it really all tank the entire expedition I like to tell the story which I don't think I told them. When you guys heard me speak before but is every day of the Sahara. I woke up at four. Am every day made my coffee. Because I am a property. Snob and I wrote down my days schedule number. Miles we're GONNA run where we're GONNA go up the naps. I very like I needed to have that plan. At the end of the one hundred eleven days I went back. You know basically went through the daily plans and all about ten of those days it actually went away our mood down which means on more than one hundred days in either went a little bit wrong or it went like lately wrong. Like you know couldn't have done more wrong yet. We made it to the end. You know we put our feet in the Red Sea. Almost five thousand miles later and And completed this mission and it only happens through this idea of focusing on what was right in front of me and dealing with that and trusting that the next day it was going to come and it and the problems for that day with present themselves and deal with them as they came. And it's a good lesson for you know of course for today for what we're all dealing with and for anybody that struggles with addiction of any kind is we are most of us have as we call them that magnifying mines and we project these problems out into the world we. I still struggle today thing. I struggle with almost more than anything else with social media. We all deal with social media. You know ninety nine out of one hundred people can love me but who am. I focused on. I'm focused on that. One person that writes the nasty comment and I will like. I'll lose my entire day my peace of mind everything because I so desperately want that person to like me. It's like that's the craziest thinking ever when I need to do is focus on the people that love me and so it is about always coming back to only the moment really long answers are now As the attic mind is like a rapid fire. Mind and I think there's so many pieces of it that are helpful in getting us through life like you're just describing and resonated so deeply when you were talking about The fifty two K. And figuring out all of the the possibilities of how you could potentially quit the race and I realize that I think that the good parts of the attic addicts brainer. What are what truly keep us going? I remember Vividly Duino. Long Distance Road races in the middle of a stage race in freezing cold temperatures in Belgium's sleeting sideways Literally almost feeling like I'm getting you know some kind of weird facial by the sleet heading my my face and riding and looking down and and going through multiple scenarios of how I could quit but I didn't want to say I was quitting because I was quitting. Something had to be wrong with my bike so I would look down at the tire and think. Where can I find a razor blade? Maybe they'll be the gutter. Where is there a pin? How can I pop the tire is? Is there a way for me to rip? The rear derail are often and within them out. Not knowing that I did it could I? Side Swipe a tree and rip the rear driller off. How can I figure out for something to it? Just self-implode in the bike Because it couldn't be me right. I couldn't admit that I was struggling and I was suffering like a dog and I was barely hanging on but I wanted to be over so badly all of those processes that addict brain goes to kept me going because before I know it I was where you were when very many of those races but all of the sudden I was like five K. From the finish and on a bike finish five K. Pretty quick and there were and there. You did it and you showed yourself. I can do that and the next time in the next time in the next time. That's very brief story so I was at a race called rate go out French rates doing adventure racing back in the day and I was doing Eco Challenge. Ray allows him. This is early two thousands and I'm in Nepal and like one of my teammates quits because he gets high altitude sickness. I mean he didn't quit he's actually pulled medically from the race. This is a team of five people. And if you lose one team ever you're out of the rates like you're no longer in the ranking. You are allowed to continue though as an unranked team so nobody on teams staff to say. Let's keep rolling. Let's have this experience because we're here. We're in Nepal for God's sake right so me end up withdrawing from the race well in Nepal. Guess what it's not like you. Just go down to the grab a taxi. Then you're heading home two days for us to even get like to civilization and what we ended up having do we were in the SAG wagon which of course. Hopefully you've never been in there but many sack back. We're in the SAG wagon you know of course at the back of the rates and so we had to spend two days watching other teams. Who didn't quit? Who were at the back of the patch struggling their asses off? You know and like thirty minutes. After I quit got on that bus. I could not have regretted a decision more in my life and that moment sticks with me anytime I think about quitting something anytime I think about relapse. Any like life is a waste been ninety nine percent of our time and live preparing for the one percent of the time or navy less when things really go wrong. That's when we have to find a way to get past that moment because most of the time our lives are pretty good people in their heart. They're just kinda like along the path that's the way life is said occasionally at tanks and that's when we feel like giving up and you have to have mechanisms in place people meetings athletics you know out. Stopgaps safety nets in place. Because in that moment you're not Discovered them they have to be placed before him. What are you? What are you advise a lot of people right to you? Who aren't athletes runners? What are you and they ask for help with their addiction? What did you tell them if they if they definitely are not GonNa? You can't say go run. You'll go to go. Maybe gotomeeting find community. You know what and I think what? Here's what I stay away from and again my sense is you guys are the same unless someone like really ask for advice which is which is different than sort of reaching out and saying. Here's what's going on so I like to frame things like this. I can't tell you how to do it but here's how I did what I tell. People though is for Schuur to you have to seek out community. What is your community art? It could be. I mean I do think that some form of recovery is important because it's important to understand the disease to a certain degree and also to find a way to alleviate the guilt that most of us carry or the behaviors that we that we do you don't you don't starve yourself or drink yourself into a coma or do eight pounds cocaine because life is awesome and you have to dig into some the reason but I think just understanding some of it and then and then realizing that the solution is far more important than staying buried in because it's been your whole life looking for the cause and yeah you need to understand a low of that but then it's about what am I gonna about it and so I do encourage people often to just seek alternatives. You know find a new path but you know it has to be about commitment. You know you can't half acid or you're not gonNA make. Yeah I think it's pretty important for addicts to recognize learning that and thinking about it while you're speaking that maybe our brains are Potentially a little bit more. You know chemically in Hansel than the next person's and that we need Maybe more of an endorphin or dopamine release than the next person or because we created that Throughout our addiction are brain still needs that? It reminds me of that That scene in that Alec in the documentary from about Alex Hahn Old When they do the MRI and they studied his amid della and it was completely different than anyone they'd ever seen because he needs so much more to get a thrill or get a kick and then there you have. What Alexsandr does which most of us can't even fathom His brain is different and I think if we can recognize that then there's so many areas of our lives that we can Lean into that and enhance those areas of our brain and have those chemicals release in a really super incredible positive Way whether it's through community or whether it's through exercise and you don't have to be an ultra runner right like I. I'm I'm the I'm serious power Walker. I can say it. I'm proud of it. You know like that. Just if I can't get anything else done that day. That has to happen because I just I. I feel like I need a little a little bit released and if I don't get it Forty eight hours later I am very very anxious person in a not cool to be around and look dieting nutrition. Of course is is another place that I do direct people and I try to be you know I watched what you guys do. And it's it's brilliant because it's you can't you can't force it on people but you can try to welcome them to this idea of trying something new and so when someone does actually reach out to me and ask for ways that they can change. I try not say. First of all they're non-runner. I'm not going to suggest. They start running fifty miles a week if you know if they spend seven days a week eating meat. I know it's actually not productive for me to tell them they should quit one hundred percent. I WANNA encourage them to start moving in that direction it together but I think that nutrition plays a huge role in my mood in. How just how I feel of course physically and when I made the decision to become plant based a very long time ago. It really changed everything for me. I mean it changed my perception and I grew up in North Carolina. You know I ate what was put on my.
