"Another conversation or the conversation at least for so many others it's. What to do. If you happen to be stopped by the police or what to do, if you are profiled, or if you run into somebody that's judging based on your color or just the conversation is here's how the world's going to treat you because you're a black man, because you're a person of color because you are. Allegedly different just because he looked. At a conversation that I certainly never had in my parents, because my conversation was the birds and the bees. It's not a conversation that I've had to have my son. Who Seven soon because he's you know, this wakened Canada, and that's not something that's I I've ever thought of, but now I have learned, and I should have known it before, but I feel like it's still worthy to have that conversation with him just to say if you see this happening, yes. something. If this happens to one of your friends, how will you react? How would you react how you handle yourself? How can you be an ally? What could you? What should you do so that to me? Is then a conversation that I will have and that we've already started having our house because I've always been even when he was really young into my wife's. Frustration I'm the type of parent that I'm I'm maybe honest to a fault in all. Don't ask me a question if you if you don't really want. I feel I. Feel like it's better to to shards the truth like yeah, you know even in Koga. I'm not the type of person I'm not going to judge you. You're immune, perceive dream, but. People if they're different if they feel different, if a parent different whatever, but I'm not GonNa lie to at least fine, we'll be fine. It's good. Don't worry about it. Don't stress about it on one hand. Don't overwhelm children in. Burn them in. You know think. Chicken little, the sky's falling, but at the same time. I don't think it's wrong to say. I don't know and I'm a little scared to I'm a little nervous and. I need more information and and I'm. We're staying home and we're clean as much as we do or we wash much because we just don't know so. For being overly strict or or anal vote y'all staying clean, and not putting your hands in your eyes, or whatever else, but it's it's because I don't own because I'm trying to protect you and not like Oh. Don't worry about it, buddy. It's fine. You know we'll be fi. You're invincible in life is great. Sometimes you gotTa have those those those honest moments conversations, even young folks. Yeah, and even how like my mom and Dad? They've got through four grandchildren. And A. Day. Obviously grandkids grow grandparents. You know all. They wanted to spend time with the grandkids. They've had enough of us. They want. They want grandchildren time and You know we. We've heard that you know young people not as affected although I don't know if that's changing recently. But. You know probably set similar what you're doing. We're we're saying listen. It's not just about. You know is Karimun, Munoz and COSMA healthy. And, safe, but we want to make sure that we're not. Negatively impacted others where we've got to, we've got to. We've got to have empathy for others we need to. You know the reason that we're not spending time with. Ninety Nana is because we WANNA. Make sure that they're healthy. As well. So talks like that. I think are important and I think it's important to for me to talk to my son and say listen. You've got free four five black friends that that you guys you always hanging around now. It's hanging out online. Make sure that. You don't let other people. Put them down because of the color of their skin. or where or the neighborhood that they just happen to live in or what they have what they don't have. my sister. She's got to black kids. Four and two. And they knew her and her husband knew they were going to have. The talk. At one point in time. They've already started to have to have that talk. Because the kids on their walks to to get the kids exercise. Have heard and seen things now. And, so now it's like. So. They're they're asking. They're asking my sister. Is it the same cop who gave daddy a ticket. A wider the COP through this when the COP comes out of jail is gonNA. Come after me as I can't fathom. The feeling that bubble up inside of me. because. They're my nephews, but I can imagine. Being. I can't imagine being black. I don't know. What, that feels like on a daily basis, and and what I'm doing is I'm trying to have as many. Conversations as possible that are so for me so. uncomfortable. But it's it's at the very least I could do. You know to to have these conversations to learn. You know what happens, absolutely you know. I I feel for your feel for your sister in your brother. Line your nephews especially at such a young age to. That feeling that it has it has nuts. It has nuts. It's weird. Either one thing I like about podcasts as you can talk about anything. One thing about podcast is. There's no commercial subdue as segues really hard from me. If it's okay with you. I don't want to take too much more time because I. Know You're busy and I really appreciate the time that you've spent with me so far but very quickly about basketball basketball apparently is coming back. Next month or at the end of next month's. Are You, are you? You must be excited because work is sort of paused for you I. Know You do in your your your mid week show. On instagram, but but your feelings about basketball coming back. I'm very excited and I think to be clear. I'm sure you would agree and everybody would agree as long as it's. It's safe to do and hadn't I mean I. Guess There's No way to guarantee that, but as long as it's as safe as healthy as possible for the players, the coaches for the NBA staff to do so then yes, very excited about the prospect of the possibility of Mon- I should say possibility. It certainly looks like it's happening. I I have seen some of the stories as you have in the last twenty four hours or so that there might be some players that are now Speaking up about having some apprehension and Not Wanting to play. I'm interested in how that impacts things, but the one thing that I would say cream at the NBA seems to have. More so than Major League Baseball or the National Hockey League. And we don't even have to think about the NFL quite yet. 'CAUSE when we're not even Doug McCain's. That's right until September but with the other three leagues. The NBA to me has a leg up in that they're able to do this. All under one roof in one location in essentially a gated community where you're, you're quarantined in a mobile. Whereas the NHL is going to need at least two cities and. You.

"Now. Let's for a moment. If Dean twenty years ago. Let alone. If the twenty minutes or fifteen twenty days ago, let's insert. A black man not meet or let's assume that that I wasn't a white male. I have feeling that story might have been different, and that's not to say that every single cop is is bad. Maybe it wouldn't have been different but I think there are certain a greater likelihood. A greater chance that that story been different. Had I. Not Been White. And I will admit that even at the time, but it's not something that crossed my mind that I thought about, but in the year sentence throwing now look back at it in something that is blatantly obvious, the privilege that existed in that moment for me. Yes I've had to do the breathalyzer literally the weekend. As, the whole province was shutting down was my son's birthday on the thirteenth of search. I which I believe was a Friday. And we had all gone to him. In France restaurants were still open, so we went to Boston Pizza on. Young Shepherd area in Toronto. and. Driving back, getting back on the highway to go on the four, one back into scarborough just under the bridge got stopped. So! I was excited breathless I've never done this before and I. Don't drink so I I I didn't have a care in the world. But I had a light broken in front. Dad there. They're going to give me a ticket. And they said. Oh, yeah, that's just wait I'm going to get it fixed later. My son's in the back. Oh, you're lying dead. And then as calling me out. And then as you know, okay, you're good. Thank you very much. Make sure you get the light taken care of and as pulling out. I run over one of the pylons. Like, Oh, no, please do. So that. Was that was? That, was that, but when you when you look back on it. I don't have a care in the world. If if a co I've gotten into arguments about cops stopping me because I don't have that fear. Right and that's and that's you know that's that's that's i. see that now as as a privilege that I had because. You know I've spoken to people in this podcast and they go. Hey, I'll. I'll stay at home during coronavirus that means I'm going to be safer and I, just because interaction with just people to get you know covid nineteen, but. If I could stay home that means there's less interaction with the police. And, and that's safer and so I I I understand that Yeah it's It's interesting things that we take for granted. A I'll tell you quickly to have back in your comments. Is that you know I'm one of those people have been a store in three months. You know we've done grocery delivery for or pickup. For three months that I had not been in a store. And all curbside pickup for for Mother's Day in any I'm only been to like four stores for of it's been delivery, or it's been Keep it locked down in the Smith Household, and then our malls and the backyard, and I'll go for walks around the neighborhood, but I'm not. I'm not niggling in public, but yeah. That would that wouldn't even cross my mind to stay home because. Trying to limit my interaction potentially with gleason. It's never in my mind raise. Cross, my mind it also again I keep referencing just because of the recency of the conversation, but a guy sherm. was born and raised in Malton Antero. I I lived in Multan Slash Togo. Right at Humber College at. Highway Twenty Seven finch that was my neighborhood for six years three years in college in three years after college I stay there before he ultimately ended up moving downtown, and that was my my my neighborhood, and whether it be going to Woodbine. Racetrack would bind center you, Togo General Hospital. The highway twenty seven Flea Market Westwood Arena. Bars and restaurants holes in the wall and whatnot the in that area in the surrounding neighborhoods when I would go for a walk, the dog that I had for a couple years of all that. I never once said assurance. How many times do you think I was stopped by the police right any interaction with the police in my six years in the Mall Mary in go. Zero. In my stories or my six years certainly sounded a lot different then. You know there was logger six years, but these sixteen or eighteen years that sure. And Listen I was in college I'm walking home at two in the morning I'm someone home from the campus bar? I'm going out with friends I'm doing house parties. NOT ONCE! Zero is six years that I had any interaction or issue. With the police in that area ever ever so. That's never crossed my mind. Think I'll stay home now or ever, because of what might happen if I run in to police officers, it's it's not even a thought in. It's it. It reminds me of what I've heard so many times I'm sure from Jones E. from other podcasts other blogs I've watched in I g, live and conversations ever where? You know the the the analogy is The age or the time in your life that you had the conversation, and for most of us are initiative for most white people for for a Lotta people. The conversation is the birds and the bees..

"You? Of US have said we've heard it being said that we're all in the same boat. Worldwide we're all fighting. This pandemic and and yeah, we are in the you know you do some reading stuff, and then you realize that you know if we just take a look at Canada. There are so many Populations groups of people. That, Eric, you and I we, we have a roof over our heads right. Yes, our jobs might have changed a bit. But there are still so many people you know. are indigenous neighbors that still don't have clean drinking water. How does that impact how they fight a pandemic? how? How does the Diet of people that? Can afford a big MAG, but can't afford food salad you know. How does that impact? How their body fights a disease like like covid nineteen, so we might be all in the same storm, but we're like so many are in different types of boats. That's exactly what I was thinking cream when you were saying. That is used the analogy of the boat in We might I know we're all in about Be the same votes. Somebody somebody might be in a kayak versus a yacht, or even or even if we are in the same boat. You know somebody's hanging over the edge. A little bit were. Somebody's gotTA comfortable seat. Somebody's got a life jacket and somebody doesn't. Somebody's somebody's sitting in the area. The boat word that might be spring a little bit of a leak, so it's certainly different. There's there's no denying it's different globally, and as you said it's. It's different within our own country. and. You know one of the other things I would say which ties into what we're talking about. in in relation I believe to do not just Colbert. But certainly into. what has what has come to a boiling point in? It's been simmering never. It's never not boiling. It's been simmering, but it's starting to boil again in boil over in it needs to should I think is. You know. I think we look at the fact that. One of the things I said I said this last last night, when I was doing my instagram show, and had Sherman Hamilton with me, and I said one of the things that I would have said you fourteen days ago. Ten fourteen days ago roughly was. I need to I need to listen I need to learn. And and already been listening, and I already was learning, but I need to listen I learn more, but what I've also been kind of tweaked at in my own mind in the last seven days is is not enough.

"For the twenty nineteen NBA, Champs the Toronto Raptors. Eric Smith. Grey. Eye Eric, how are you? Doing. Very well, thank you very much. If we. As Tronto Basketball fans twenty one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighteen, twenty, thousand nine. You. Know what what a season that we had to defining year for for fans. When Twenty Twenty March twenty twenty comes around. And everyone is saying. Can we go back to twenty nineteen three fast forward? Through twenty twenty. But I'm now thinking I. Don't know about you eric that. Maybe, twenty twenty year that. Really, we're we're. We're changing I hopefully. We're changing the way that we treat each other. Yes, moving forward when your thoughts on that. Listen just to be clear. I'm ready to ready to answer this an absolutely ready to go. Are we rolling? We are we were. I think you're banging on. I think that there's no denying it was what a eight twelve weeks ago. More than that. Obviously when things started, but it was probably eight or ten weeks ago where we all were saying making we just hit the reset button can can can twenty twenty just go away? I think there are a lot of people certainly NBA circles. That were looking to the very beginning of the year when David Stern passed away and then when Kobe Bryant Steph came at the end of January as well so even just within the NBA community that were. Significant stories to start the year, and then all of a sudden we get to the first weaker little longer than the first week of March and the NBA to me was perhaps the league that kind of started it all almost globally. I mean there were already certain countries especially overseas that were starting to. Go into lockdown measures in quarantining or whatnot, but it seems like the world in general no-doubt. North America didn't truly take notice in didn't truly extinct drastic steps until the NBA said. We're done. We're hitting the pot right now and I think because of all that, and because of the fear that all of us added as as humans. As brothers and sisters in husbands and wives, parents, and grandparents, and aunts and uncles, everybody kids. You know people of all ages I think we were scared I think there's still a lot of people that are scared in terms of what's happening in the world What's going on? When will it go away? If it goes away? Will there be a vaccine? Won't there be a vaccine? Who will take it? Who Won't take it? HOW SAFE THEM I? Is it okay to go public? Should I wear a master? We're asking the questions. Go on and on and on and I. Think you can way on people and I think that's probably the reason why a lot of folks were just saying it. The pause button no hit the race button. Let's yet act to twenty nineteen. Let's pretends didn't even happen, but as you say now. What has happened. In the last couple of weeks specifically. And certainly, since since the killing the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. I believe that. In the wake up, call should have happened a long time ago for many. And I'M NOT GONNA sit here on some some high per. Se That I. You know I've always been aware. And I've always been fighting the 'cause I believe I've been an ally. I believe I've been away, too. Many of the issues I believe supported. All or the at the very least most of the issues over the years I like to think that at live my life in a good way, and if treated people Broccoli, even through all of this I've seen there's more I can do. And even if my doing is using my voice using my platform again, being stronger ally, for friends for colleagues just for humanity period and I think because of that There's a sense of no. We shouldn't delete twenty twenty. We need to use twenty twenty as the wakeup call for what needs to change not just between fellow man. Obviously. Men are one night when I of course Even, if doughnuts, not the diver conversation, but even the impact on our environments everything. You again I. I know we're going to circle back to. The current race relations in the issue surrounding that led no doubt but you just think of the impact that covert has had on the lack of pollution and bluer skies and cleaner skies and cleaner air, and more animals, roaming in in neighborhoods in areas that they didn't before and clean waters, and all of that I think should serve as a wakeup call to perhaps the way we need to live in the way. We need to treat our earth. Yeah, better when? I do return to normal quote, unquote, whatever normal ends of being. Yes I was speaking with a a friend of mine. WHO has battled?

You're trying to figure out what to do next door. How do you approach this in one of the things that she did was? What can I learn from this week at I?

The Psychology of Circles
"You can play along at home with our first story just draw a circle simple as that grab a piece of paper and something to write with and get to it this might sound weird. But you can actually learn quite a bit about someone's background from the way they draw circle. There's actual data and science behind this. So don't worry. We're not just talking about some pseudoscience handwriting analysis kind of thing. Okay. Did you draw your circle? Well, here are a couple of fun facts. If you're American there's an eighty six percent chance that you draw your circles counterclockwise. But for people living in Japan eighty percent of people draw their circles in the opposite direction. This data comes from November twenty sixteen when Google released in AI game called quick draw. It was kind of like the game pictionary you'd start to draw something and then Google's algorithm would try. Guess what you were drawing in twenty seconds or less courts. Use data from the game to look at one hundred nineteen thousand unique circles to see how different people draw them. They found that the direction that you dry. Your circle is quote linked to geography and cultural upbringing deep-rooted and hundreds of years of written language in significant in developmental psychology. And trends in education today, unquote, the clockwise and counterclockwise patterns, probably come down to language Japanese and Chinese writing follows a strict stroke order with characters drawn from the top left in the direction of the bottom. Right. A nineteen eighty-five study showed that most people living in China druthers circles clockwise, possibly because of the clockwise strokes in semi cursive, Chinese calligraphy stroke order is so important in these countries, it can even signal your level of education on the flip side Americans are taught to draw shapes counterclockwise to prep their motor movements for what's called magic see letter formation as in the curve in the letters C G Q and oh test this out on your friends. And see what happens weirdly, my initials are c g and I just drew a circle, and I started at the bottom and did it clockwise. That's so weird. I know. Well, I I can't do it now because I'm too aware. I hope everyone knew drew a circle drew a circle before. I started talking if you dislike being cold as much as we do. Then you come to the right podcast because we have some tips from the world of physiology to help you understand how your body stays warm in the wintertime, or you know, whenever it's cold as reported by exercise physiologist, John Eric Smith for the conversation. Your blood does a lot of things while it's coursing through your body. It's carrying nutrients and oxygen and other important stuff. And it also brings heat produced in your muscles to your skin where it gets released when it gets cold around you your body moves blood to your torso to keep your vital organs warm at the same time. Your body sends less blood flow to your skin that means less heat makes it to your skin. Celeste heat gets lost here environment. This helps you hang on to your internal heat longer. You know, how you shiver and your teeth chatter when you get really cold that's because bodies cranking up your muscle activity to help you stay warm that movement actually helps you break down more nutrients to crank. Up your internal heat. People lose heat at different rates, depending on their body size body fat and metabolic activity to smaller people with less body, fat lose more heat than larger people with more body. Fat more muscle. Mass means more heat gets produced and more body fat works as an insulator. So there's less heat loss. So let's get into how you can stay warm, obviously, warm clothing as helpful like, a hat and coat and gloves. But believe it or not it's a myth that most of your heat escapes through your head. Remember how I said your blood rushes to your torso to keep in vital organs worm? Well, that's why a coat will do you a lot more good than hat. If you had to pick one of the other, you'll keep your limbs warmer. If you keep your torso warm since that'll help, you keep a steady blood flow something else, they can help you. Stay warm is being physically active doing jumping jacks or running around makes your muscles contract, which breaks down more nutrients, which dinner is extra heat, but layers of clothing and physical activity can tip the balance past what you need to offset heat loss. If that happens. Get an increase in body temperature. And your body will start sweating to try to cool down, and that's bad. Because then you'll deal with more heat laws when your sweat evaporates one more thing that can help you stay warm though, eating your body. Temperature will go up when your body is busy breaking down food. That's why if you go camping you may want to have a snack before bed. So you stay warmer while you sleep hope that helps us they warm this winter or next winter if it's warm wherever you are right now, we'll wrap up today with a trick to keep you from choking under pressure choking is the thing. Researchers have actually studied for years they've found that we perform better the more. We have to gain. But only up to a certain point when we have too much to gain. We tend to mess up. Even if we're doing something we do every day. In other words, we choke. You might get sweaty palms or even feel nauseous, but choking is mostly a mental affliction the potential reward or loss of reward distracts you from the task at hand and your performance level drops choking shows up on brain scans as heightened activity in the ventral. Stratum that's the part of your brain where you analyze risk and reward. So November twenty eighteen a team of researchers from the California Institute of technology published a study on how to change your thinking to stop from choking. They gave participants hand eye coordination tests, which came with rewards ranging from zero to a hundred dollars for successfully completing the challenge in some cases, researchers asked participants to reimagined their situation or use what's called cognitive reappraisal strategy. The reward structure didn't change, but they were told to imagine the reward amount in cash already sitting in their pocket as they perform the task, basically, they imagined they already had that reward and participants choked substantially less when they used this reappraisal trick than when they thought of themselves as striving for a prize MRI scans also showed that reappraisal reduced the amount of activity in that risk and reward focused ventral stratum. It's not a perfect fix reappraisal didn't prevent all choking. But for an easy purely mental shift. It was a surprisingly. Effective antidote. So the next time you're trying for a major reward whether it's the World Series or a lifetime supply of chicken nuggets. Just imagine. It's already yours. You're not trying to prove you deserve.
