How the Addition of Finland and Sweden Would Change NATO
"NATO is about to expand to Finland and Sweden. You were the allied supreme commander of NATO. Are you going like this? Hooray, we got the fans in or are you saying, oh my God, the finished border with Russia expands my theater of operations by 50%. It is two thumbs up. And if I had other thumbs to offer, I would make them. We have got to get the fins in the Swedes in to NATO. That big border is a tactical and strategic advantage for NATO. It allows us to move our bases our troops are jets up into that northern Flank. It gives us real purchase into the Arctic. It is a very significant chunk of real estate. We want it. So geography matters. Number two, these are warfighting nations combined their defense budget is around 15 billion. That's about a fourth of the Russian defense budget. So we're adding real money and resources and then finally hue, the Finns have a big army. They have the largest number of artillery pieces in Europe.
Sec. Robert Wilkie on the Fleeting Neutrality of Finland and Sweden
"We are back with former secretary of veterans affairs in the Trump administration, Robert wilkie, senior national security contributor to newsmax. That's actually wilkie. You live breathe and sleep geopolitics. You love it as much as I do. For somebody who's followed European security matters for decades, you know, I thought I'd go to my deathbed with Sweden and Finland as forever neutral, like Switzerland, and the announcement that the likely to deposit the articles of accession to the alliance by the end of June. How historic is this and how much of a massive failure for Putin? Absolutely. Do you want to be the Russian leader whose gift to history is the rearmament of Germany. And the removal of neutrality status from Finland and Sweden. That's what is going to happen. I'll give you an example of what is what has taken place in Finland. Reuters did a survey a couple of years ago, two years ago. And Finns were asked if they were ready to kill Russians. 78% told Reuters, we are going to kill, we can kill them today. Explain why that isn't flash in the past. That is not the question. This is hundreds of years of history really going back to the days, even before Peter the great. When the Russians moved into the Baltics moved into what we now know as Scandinavia, Finland fought a very bloody war. Both against Lenin and also against Stalin. The Russians finally overcame the Finns in the 1940s just by sheer weight of numbers. But they lost the equivalent of an entire army in the snow. And usually this is individual snipers, more units. This isn't tank divisions of fins. But you have an incredibly sophisticated military in
Chrystia Freeland Proclaims Permanent Monitoring From Emergencies Act
"We used all the tools that we had prior to invocation of the emergency act and we determined that we needed some additional tools Now some of those tools we will be putting forward measures to put those tools permanently in place The authorities of Finn track I believe do need to be expanded to cover crowdsourcing platforms And They're expanding the emergency rules even though the occupation is actually over We can't have crowdfunding a protest ladies and gentlemen Certainly not unless it's Black Lives Matter And we don't even know where their money went or the leaders went Go ahead Payment platform and their payment providers So that is something that we need to do And we will do and that needs to be in place permanently Some of these other tools like the sharing of information between law enforcement and financial services and the requirement of financial services to be reviewing their accounts proactively And the immunity from prosecuting their accounts proactively that means endlessly Monitoring bank accounts Go ahead And that we have provided to them in doing this These are extraordinary measures measures that we absolutely believe are necessary in the current circumstances that are having an impact and let me also point out having a peaceful impact
How Can Ukraine Prevent a Russia Invasion?
"Andrew peak based on your time as director of Europe at the National Security Council, is there any chance that Ukraine can do to Putin's invasion if it occurs, what Finland did to Stalin's in the winter war in 1939 and 40. In other words, hit them much harder than they're expecting. Gosh, you know, Hugh, I served alongside finished troops in Afghanistan. I have to tell you they have an incredibly impressive martial tradition. To that then they traded a little bit out of necessity after the Second World War for more neutral status. I think the situations are very different. Unfortunately, the winter weather that is coming in Ukraine from say mid January to early March actually favors the Russians with their greater mobility and their greater armor vehicles than it does the Ukrainians whereas back in the back in the winter war and the continuation war at which you were alluding to the mobility was actually with the Finns the famous ski troops in the blizzards that were in the great battle of sula montes.

"Still early twenties young. Are you living together okay. That's good so you can kind of assess this a little bit independently. I think it's really sweet that you know this is your first relationship and you wanna make it work but it might be something over the next six to eight months that you kind of assess and because. I don't think you'll be able to nor should it be your job i think yeah. I don't wanna mom him. Ernie that england now. I think that this might be a decision that you need to think about. And you don't need to make a decision now. Is the time to really examine what you want in a partner and if this is a rewarding relationship or you're happy maybe then i just. I am very hesitant about attempting to change. His behavior often doesn't end. Well if you want to be in this. I think you support him. I do think trying more mild dosage. That be like my practical advice. But i think the best advice would be to examine the reward in the relationship and if you continue to be happy than that's great we're also really interesting time right now coming out going back in of this corentin. There's a lot of feels like everyone's either reflecting on the past intensely or very worried about like solidifying the plans for the future. And i don't know if you need to put that kind of pressure on yourself or this relationship necessarily in the next three or four months. I think it'll be really hard for him. It sounds like to stop smoking weed for you or for his boss and so i think that route will lead you to a lot of kind of torment. You'll feel like you have to be constantly checking to see if he's stoned or where he keeps his stash and he'll feel the need to hide it and you'll get into that kinda miserable cycle I think it's great that you're both young and you don't need to be really thinking about where you guys will be. In two years. I would just focus on the next like three to four months love. You know as as you say you do. And positively enforce the idea of how much fun it is when he's fully present and then just kinda quietly assess take it in and if you're anything like me and maybe you put a lot of pressure on especially in my twenties. I was great at making a bad thing work for a long time. You know because. I liked being in relationships and i thought that i could and i felt like i was an optimistic person. So there's nothing wrong with you and there's probably nothing wrong with him. He's twenty two and a pothead. But i don't think you'll be able to change his behavior at this age nor do you want to do you think fan. I don't think. But now i'm just those also realizing like if it is a real serious relationship like there are sacrifices. Everyone has to make of their own. The way they live their life personally if they were on their own and a bachelor or bachelorette You know like there are things you have to put aside to have a relationship that works and you have to be able to find your own new way to regulate yourself With the other person you know. I would live very different. I think i have very different habits. If i was living alone. You know but this is again over time. I think there isn't it adjustments that you do have to make and if you're incapable of making them then i think he needs readout for like actual real help but it doesn't sound like you're really there yet so like another issue. I have or like in addition to that make more than just the week but it's like the promises. The word promise means a lot to me in like never asked him to make promises of stopping spots always come from him in like bullying really directed him being present with me and him not smoking around me as much i know he smokes like quite a bit every day when he gets work and things like that but when he makes like i guess proclamations like i promise you i'm done in hurts like three or four times. I feel like that's something that's really hurting me. I feel like like do. I believe you. What else will. I not believe you and i know he's not trying to hurt me like i. It's not about me. It's that he's trying struggling but i guess i don't want to say i don't believe you would not but i don't want to lose faith in him when he says things like that you know i. I don't know how to react hearing this piece of again like today or tomorrow. Will i believe him like. I've that same thing before if he makes another like i'm done i promise i'm not gonna. I think you can say i appreciate that. You're saying this. But i don't need you to say this to me like i. I wanna be with you in a more present way sometimes and that's kind of what i'm asking for. I'm not asking for this ultimatum. I want you to have to stress yourself out by putting this kind of pressure on yourself. I think you guys are both young and have you ever really considered breaking up with him over. This issue is the end of your letter. You write and how can i support him but also let them know that. I can't see a future with him. if he can't stop or cut back. I was like nothing like super serious thinking of breaking up with him. But it's just within the past. Three weeks i think he's made like two or three promises of saying that so it's just like i feel like each time. He says it hurts a little bit more. Yeah any just volunteering. This really is like talking about like in general he's had the conversations boss or his friends and his just like okay now and done like i promise you. I don't know it's it's just. It makes it very tough. And i don't think people are easy to change. I don't think that should be your burden at age. Twenty four. i think that you assessing if this is a relationship that gives you seventy percent. Happiness and contentment and thirty percent is like a little aggravation. Those are okay percentages for relationship. I prefer ninety ten ratio. But you're young. And i just don't know if it's the time to leap to the future. I don't think you necessarily need to make a decision of if you guys are going to get married. One day. I know that that's where our brains go. We want to know what's going on. But if you can sort of resist that and just really take assessment and then maybe in three to four months maybe ask a qualified person. Thinks because i'm worried that twenty four. You're too young to kind of tackle his weed smoking. And i want your first relationship to be fun. I've just been thinking about someone who's saying promising. I'm gonna quit and then smokes. Today's later like that means it's not up. Promise that is for himself. You know that is doing it because he probably thinks it's what you want here and i think it's really true what you said like at this stage in your life and relationship. Maybe it's not the time to take on an issue of the size and magnitude. You know how an but i would start by having like a really gentle conversation especially if he's trying to hide it from you to. I would start there. My mom used to tell me when i was young to be selfish and love which i didn't understand because i really wanted to make things work and i think i wasted some time on some people who just may be weren't ready or i wasn't ready either one. I would always advise people in their twenties to not put so much pressure on the road ahead into really think about your own contentment and your own. Happiness.

"Think you would fantastic. Okay good good. How did feel about it. Are you like kinda nervous. I mean i. I was like oh god because it is it is touchy. But it's funny. I was actually just reading about this thing about you. Know the only fans sites. You've heard this whole thing. Where like they're going to say. No sexually explicit content or whatever so i was just reading this sort of overview of the attack on porn versus the acceptance of it. And it's like this funny place where like seventies eighties. It was like extreme. Feminism and extreme ultra conservative christianity. Were like the one place where they coalesced about this. Like trying to rid all the internet of anything explicit. You have done. Have you thought about this idea with him. That's what i was getting into like. That's what's so different about this world's like these kids could watch anything the touch of a button now and i do. I mean i'm gonna raise him as a respectful supportive man stuff but like if you don't have a good base. I do worry about young men's brains watching this shit when they're just starting to go through puberty. You know because you can see anything. And it's really dark shit out there unhealthy bad like that like when you're an adult can like see and say oh that's gross and bad and but you don't have that development you're like it's definitely gonna affect the way that you talk to women and i just told my son who just turned nine. I said you know. If there's one thing. I could tell you it would be to understand that curiosity and the internet can lead you to places that will sear images into your brain that you won't be able to let go of you know and i'll try to reiterate that message as much as i can. Kids need to know that their brains are developing and they are pieces of plastic that literally change by what they see an experience. So i really felt taylor. Because i felt the same thing i would get really angry just like she did. Which only exacerbated the problem or in terms of my own sense of isolation in the relationship and feeling alone weighed. Probably seeing side of someone that you don't you know that you didn't think was there and be kind of ugly to look at. Yeah or the idea of like. Why am i not enough right like your enough for me. I don't think it's how our brains work like that doesn't compute in some way. 'cause it's not about not being enough it's like it's just a different thing. I like that. The question does not compute.

"Opened up. Yeah i think when you know. We're in these really long term relationships we forget that like this is the work that people talk about like relationships at work in could be in a lot of different aspects. Taylor i didn't have like a lot of sexual partners. And in my twenty s. I was totally insecure about my experience level of like. I don't know what to do. I guess and i love the idea of you guys being able to grow in that world together and maybe you can find a way to reframe the conversation so he doesn't go deeper into his whole of shame and embarrassment and try to keep it hidden. You know what i mean. I think what. I mostly wanted to get out of this conversation just like an understanding that this isn't a window to cheating. I don't think it's that at all. I really don't neither do i. And maybe it's an opportunity to grow closer. I love your idea of going to the sex shop out of town but when he gets fast all right. I like that and i like you finding some things that make you feel really sexy. Whatever that is something where you feel an ownership. I want you gain confidence in that way. And in that i think it'll just give you a sense of stability and security but it is totally human to do the comparison idea of like what am i not giving my ass doesn't look like that. You know i want to reiterate for me. I really don't think that it's personal. It's not about the person that you're with. It's your own male primal shit that you're dealing with on your own you know. It's not a direct comparison of. This is what i'm not getting a life so this is what i'm going to go watch l. k. You said that beautifully thank you could dicey territory. I know we set you up for this really taylor. I wanna thank you so much for talking about something that so many of us have experienced. Which is that insecurity when our partners watching horn am what am i. Not giving where he has to go have like relationships with his computer. But it's not a relationship. I'm just throwing that relationship. Yeah finn. This is the useful interjection. It's not a deep emotional connection. It's quick immediate release and then it doesn't linger moving on. I really promised that's true. I bet there have this explanation. I ended my Little blurb to you with like asking for a friend. And i truly feel like i had some friends with me. So thank you guys so much. Absolutely thank you taylor. I so appreciate your letter and this conversation because as you know there are millions of people dealing with this so thank you so talk events. Yeah so nice to meet you both. This is amazing to me everything aside. U2 thank you for talking about something.

"Which rock he is awesome. Hey i'm watching you tonight. american cited. this is crazy so happy back on to me too. It's been a long been a while since it's been on so i think people are excited. What's going on. okay. So i've been with my fiance for ten years now. We just got engaged last saw and we've been friends were and we got together. We are funny and we made it through twentieth together and so a couple of times like our earlier twenties. I come across pouring left on his web browser because we share devices in a computer and stuff. So it's just been light carelessly left on there and recently this year. I've come across that a couple of times but now that we're a gauge. I find it much more offensive than i would have when we were together younger and so just really it just opened up a floodgate of like thoughts and questions and wonders like am. I good enough for him. Getting enough from me. Dec- needs something more. It just has really like knocked. My confidence and made me really insecure taylor. When you wrote in your email i feel like i sound insane right now and i so feel that and i think so many people do. I think there's a lot of pressure to be cool to be like accepting of you know your boyfriends or husbands or your partner's desire to look at porn and i feel like in the past. When i've had your experience it has hurt my feelings and looking back. I should have said something okay. So how does your fiancee react. Is he embarrassed. Yeah he He'll be like very very silat for a few minutes. I think he's leading process trying to figure out what to say. And in the beginning like when we're in our earlier twenties. I would really freak out like what the fog. This is terrible. Can we do this behind my back. But now it's more like okay. Like i believe one a semi live with you and i'd really like to fulfill your needs. Like what can we do or something you need and i just need to accept it. I just wanna understand. Because like i want to spend with you and i love you and i don't want you to feel ashamed but i also like wanna know if there's something more that you need is a window for cheating and i try not to ask too many questions. They have so many. And i don't want to overwhelm him but he just kind of sits there in like no your enough for me. I don't know how to explain it like honestly it's just because i'm a guy and this is just what guys do. I've done this since. I was a horny teenager and Become habitual from. When i was younger and i never ever thought it would affect you this way and i was like one try and understand. So that's why. I wanna talk about it so it's kind of awkward. He does clam up. Do you go into like a comparison idea. Like oh my god that girl so hot. Or they're like doing shit that we don't do in the bedroom. Where yeah my brain definitely goes there especially like with how enhanced i feel people are now in their earlier twenties in stuff like these women and men just looked like they were created sculpted by the gods and so i just get this really annoying comparison mode because like i work out allied and really take care of myself make the effort all women do like entertain how they look and yeah just snakes insecure in that way. Finn is this one of those moments where it's like. It's not about taylor at all from a man's perspective in and i know that's not comforting to hear necessarily i don't know if it is or it isn't but i almost guarantee you that it's not about you. I think that. Listen every relationships different. But i do think being able to privatize something. Relationship is okay. I don't think we always have to be sharing. Every single thing that goes on in our own heads you know. We are complicated creatures. It's not a reflection of what he's slacking from you or projecting onto you. It's it's a part of his brain. That is like unrelated. I know that might not seem like the best way to talk about it. But i really think that that's true. I really appreciate that insight. Especially because i've only talked for women. I don't really have any. That could talk to you about this. I can tell that you're climbing up just like well. It's hard to express the right way. Yeah yeah if he doesn't want to hurt my feelings but also like i'm not trying to shame him. I just want to understand. So i don't care when i was in a relationship with a guy who watched a lot of porn. I was the same way it felt like our love. Life was really good. I just didn't understand it. And i reacted with anger. Which sort of. I think amplified the shame element which sort of drove the whole thing into more secrecy. Have you suggested like watching it with him or making your own potentially I haven't actually thought of those options while the watching it together came up like most recently when i came across his web browser. And he's like do you think you'd ever wanna wash it with the and i was like no if i'd be able to handle it for you watching another woman with there But then it. Also when i say that out loud to him it makes me want to like work on my a security confidence or like do i have to care. I don't know. I kind kind of in between like wanting to train myself to not care so much. Does he make you feel sexy and desired guys. Yeah that's why. I was like surprise because he makes me feel so good. We have a great sex life than so. that's why it's so surprising to come pasig. I'm like oh. I thought you're getting what you need from me. So i can't get this out of my head what send just said about like. It's okay for people to have certain areas in a relationship where they privatized their life i. I don't really consider that it's really opened up a new aspect in my mind. Right now doesn't mean you're dishonest or it's like a betrayal it's like i think that we are as you were with someone for a while. It's like you each need to have some space during the pandemic my wife and i were like okay. We almost carved out like all right. You have this hour to yourself do your thing. Whatever you do having a little of that is i think can be healthy but he also has to respect you enough to understand what you're feeling and adjust his behavior accordingly you know. I don't think you're gonna convince them to stop watching porn but like he can be aware of how sensitive it is to you and figure out whatever that is for him to make it so that this doesn't affect you so personally because it sounds like outside of this like you guys have a pretty good thing going. Yeah yeah we do so. I guess like that's something to that. I feel like confused about as like we do. Have this great sex life. Do have this great relationship so against like as far as like the male anatomy goes in china understand outside he. I just don't.

"You tell us about your worst heartbreak. Oh boy fed a couple. This girl in high school. I was like really interim we talked for a long time and be had a little fling that we weren't like full-on dating really kind of fell pretty hard and she wrote me this letter that was like basically saying i don't trust you and breaking up with me without actually having been together i was friends with everybody and i people did have crushes on me and stuff and i think she thought that i was more of a player than i was in some way you know like i was deceiving because i was popular or something so what i was telling her she thought was trying to get her in the sheets or something so she thought i was more i think more than actually was and you liked her more than she knew yes it sounds like yeah and then i wrote her a letter at the end of the year like sort of telling all those things and it was like why didn't i just in high school you don't. There's a lot that you're not expressing that you don't know how to. I was a really dramatic a kid in high school. But i was really quiet. I was not popular. And i would fall very hard so did you have a series of long-term relationships. No i had no intention of having a long term relationship. So maybe she was right. Yeah always like making out now after her and before it was like i was trying to just be free. You know god that sounds like a really fun. Highschool experience. It was all right. I was going. I went to this arts. High school called locks up. Campus of cal state. La so everyone was kinda out there you know. They were weird artists types. How did you and your wife me. We met a juilliard. She was a dancer and sexually a common thing. Or the female dancers in the male actors are often kinda scope at each other out just down a single hallway at school so eight. Tell me about seeing her down the hallway. Then i'll tell you. The first time we we went out was a fixed double date. I was supposed to pull out the names. I was either going to be. Sarah victoria my friend who lives in. Take the other one on. The date was like this fund. Silly thing like we're just friends here you know. And i picked out sarah. So like she. And i work in dayton victoria jerry. We're going to be on the date. And then i find out months later that both names were sarah that they were just trying to hook me up and it worked. That's awesome and so. How long did you guys date before. You got married years from school to married like six years and how was the wedding. How was that whole experience was like all right. Get married already. Well you it was. We were in chicago is It was really beautiful. We're at the sold park building in chicago. And we both have her. Especially she's half puerto rican. She has like lots of family. All over the place and i have lots of family all over the place so you sort of realized. We're kind of getting married for your family. Which was good. It's fun to see like your very different cousins like her like chicago. Puerto rican cousins meeting like my cousins from rockford. And and there were these juilliard dancers. Like they're just throwing the wildest dance party any chicago wedding scene. Oh my god. What a blast. Yeah these dancers like dancing with our uncles. Grandmas was just great.

"Are you in los angeles fin minoa. Yeah i just actually moved as a person. How do you deal with moving stress. Like on a scale of one to ten. I do handle it. Well i used to really enjoy it. Like when i was just moving myself and now i have wife and a two year old. It's a whole different story because like the amount of stuff with a kid is just like quadrupled. I you the kind of friends that helps other friends move. Oh yeah i do that a lot like in college and stuff. I always felt that was good karma you know. Play it forward because you know you're going to need moving help yourself. It's the unpacking that is so hard and tedious. Actually packing stuff up in boxes and moving on to a truck like that stuff's kind of fun but like then you're sitting in his house. Now what do i do now. Life just continues. Where's the floss. Exactly the little things you're like. What fighting box have put that in fin. Will you tell us a little bit about yourself before we talk to listeners. I know you grew up in massachusetts. And i wanted to ask you about the idea of performing. On stage and that kind of fulfillment and then performing in single camera world Will you tell us a little bit. About what kind of like cedar nerd. You are a huge one. Yeah i started doing theater. And that's how. I got into acting and so it was kind of all. I knew what acting was for a while when i was younger. It wasn't like film acting versus theater acting like this is what you do you get on stage in front of people that are actually there. I think the biggest learning experiences to have the delay between your performance and your audience. Seeing you know like if you do a movie you might wait a year before anyone sees your work whereas if you're doing it on stage it's completely immediate feedback loop you know. So that's like the first thing to really kind of have to wrap your head around. I think there's something so pure and fulfilling immediately fulfilling about doing theater and yet it also can take it out of you in a way that's unsustainable or like you need a break from it because it's so consumes your life whereas do intense scene in a movie that day at loose swallowed up by it but then you go home and you never have to touch again whereas if you're doing a play there's almost like a sense of dread if a scene goes really well you walk off stage near like. I have to do that again tomorrow. Eight times this week. So yeah it's just a whole different ballgame. I think i'm lucky that i started doing theater moved to film and not the other way around. Because i think it's much easier to sort of narrow your scope than to expand your scope sex eight. Does i agree. I grew up doing local theatre in seattle so that was very much my experience. And when i i did scary movie it was jarring that the film crew wasn't an audience at all so hard to figure out. Why aren't they laughing. Yeah exactly quiet. Yeah it's very disconcerting when you're used to having the immediate feedback of okay. That was good. Yeah especially with comedy. Yes that feedback is so apparent if you do a tragedy you're like i don't know i think they're crying. I can't really hear. Pure reaction of a laugh is like nothing else. A laugh in the moment green lantern green. Winter's coming up. I'm starting in a few months. See you haven't started shooting yet. I would sort of shooting at their furiously writing away. How are you feeling anxiety wise. You're not there yet not quite there. Although i'm realizing what big shoes to fill in an how. I'm about to be stepping into a fan base. That is so rabid that i'm like is a little bit daunting that way but i'm excited about it more than anything i really am like. It's gonna be like a thing that takes over my life for at least a year like it's going to be a big hefty shoot so like starting at my head around it and like i have like sixty years of comics to read. I want to do it properly. So yeah have my homework cut out for me. That's awesome and tell us about american horror story right. It's very exciting. Because it didn't air last year at all got delayed because the pandemic it's been like two years and talk about a fan based like the fans of the show are really really wildly passionate. So they're like very gung ho about this happening and it's like a big thing. That's so sad. Like i mean. We don't have premier anymore like it's like just gonna watch my living room you know so anticlimactic but it's good. I'm glad it's finally going to be out there reunion and actor that you've learned from. Oh yeah. I mentioned him so much. I think people are probably sick. Who listen to me. But like i was lucky enough to work with. Philip seymour hoffman. Before he died. And i worked with him on stage and death of a salesman. He really did affect the way that i've approached my work from that point on it was really really a life changing experience the way that he never let himself off the hook like every single show was trying to go deeper and taking it with them and not being satisfied with it and it was from what i don't think you have to be quite as tortured as he became from that part and from many parts i think affected him very very personally. I don't think that has to happen to you. But the degree to which she let the character in under his skin used his own raw personality in an emotional depth like was really inspiring to watch. It was intimidating. It was at first but he was actually such a gentle soul like he had a kind of armor up when he was working on something that like before show could not talk to him at all. He was in a shell that was like like not even the stage. Magic talk to him. He was just like immersed himself but then once it was over he was the funniest easiest most hysterical guy and was such a sweet person so like once. The intimidation factor was some slightly removed in terms of god. I worked with sooner hof at holy shit. I was able to create a kind of friendship with him for guess two years that i knew him. How amazing thin would you tell us at what age you would have said to somebody. I'm in love. I was in love with the girl kind of long distance. From the time. I was really young. We had a kind of a group of kids that were all born very close together and this one girl was like the love of my life and like we were babies together and then i moved away moved to evanston when i was six and i would go back to massachusetts every summer but it was like all through elementary school into middle school. Like i had this. Maybe in retrospect it was fantasy love life but we would write letters you know and and she was always like the one forever and then we became teenagers and realized we were just really close friends. And now we're still very very close friends. And it was. Because i was far away from her to that it was like it was something. Really romantic and heartbreaking. In like every time. I would leave the berkshires and come back to evanston it was like torture heart rending torture. And i would miss her like all year long so you are a romantic at a young age. I think everyone lick thinks kids. Don't fall in love. But i think it's not true. I think like love evolves your definition of it. But like i remember being like it's not true i'm ten and i love her. Yeah and it is what it is and will.

"finns" Discussed on Broken Record
"Craig finn grew up in minneapolis. Going to gigs for hometown. Heroes like prince and the replacements after a stint working as a financial broker then moved to new york city and eventually formed the hold steady two thousand and three this year. The band released their eighth studio album. Open door policy. And this time. Vince says he focused on themes related to the trappings of technology and late. Stage capitalists on. Today's episode craven talks to bruce. Had them about how the drive by truckers inspired him to create the hold steady about how springsteen taught him to vamp and why it feels like it's his duty to not only write about the party but to write about the hangover to this is broken record ladder notes for the digital age. I'm just richmond. Here's bruce ellum with craig finn. This is a thrill for me for many reasons but one is that the person who introduced me to your music was my old colleague. David carr the new york times Now david like you very funny which is rare in pop music and rare new york times i should say and he was from minneapolis and he could never explain to me. What was in the water in that part of the world that produce the such a great scene for bands. I mean everyone points to the cold and the the reason to stay inside. I always felt like when i was coming up in the nineties. There were people going to shows regularly. i'm in minneapolis. Like attending shows at first avenue. The big club there that if they lived in another city maybe have been going to that many shows. I just think it was kind of part of the fabric the city and i think the city's proud of you know i mean. I think that the city puts forth hayward the place where the replacements came from hoodoo prince. Obviously now liz. Oh you know has some connection to the city which they put forth constantly. It's always been a source of pride for the city when you grew up there a sharp divide between the black clubs and where prince sort of made his name and the white clubs for placements. And that kind of thing you know. They're certainly is a segregated city. But i think prince you know who really is connected with first avenue which is the place that a lot of music has come from an certainly the place where i saw the shows in my formative years where i saw the replacements and who screwed etc soul asylum and prince purple rain. That's that's the setting of it and people often mistaken that he owned it. I'm so prince very much connected to the same club that everything was happening. I'm not sure it's a big enough city to have you know massive amount of clubs and have that kind of divide. Everything gets you know in some way mushed together just by the size of the city. Yeah so for you. Was it the live scene or was there a particular record particular song that you heard when you were a kid that said this is it. This is either what. I love what i'm gonna do. I have this thing. I remember seeing i someone on tv. I believe this. Is ray charles playing when i was very young. I think it was on sesame street. And i looked at the screen and i said i knew happy days i knew fonzie was cool rate so i said hey mom is cool and she said yeah he's cool and i said do we know anyone cool. She said no. And i remember at that moment. Being like well this is. This is kind of annoying. I want to go find something cool. And one of the first things i remember that attracted me was the monkees tv show. I mean this idea of guys living together and bursting into songs and having a good time while playing music to music in me always. But i think the real kind of watershed moment was discovering local. Things in minneapolis. And so having these bands on my hometown was somehow exciting and accessible to me and made me sort of believe in bantu. In a way that led zeppelin. Aerosmith had not previous and then. When did it start. Feet was guitar. Your first instrument. Yeah i started playing guitar. I gotta get an electric ajar. Actually a bit of luck. Fortuitous luck. I signed up for lessons and a guy who is teaching lessons. Guitar store was named chris osgood and he'd been a member of a band. Called the suicide commandos which was sort of the first minneapolis punk band. They'd signed a blank records in like seventy six with peru boo and he was a fountain of knowledge you know. He taught me a lot about playing guitar but a lot about other things too and he had this fun stuff like a landline phone in his lesson room. And when phone would ring he'd turn up the stereo and then he answered the phone which is countered abnormal logic. And i always say what what are you doing. He said you always want him to make you know. Make you think you're having a party so he. He had a lot of tips that and he turned me onto a lot of cool music. Once he heard what i was in into in Kinda got me started on sort of the lifestyle if you will so you mentioned the lifestyle so that brings us to your new album with the hold steady open door policy. If anybody thought you were mellowing with age with your solo albums you're right back in the right into the heart of the hold steady yes. I guess worldview lot of desperate people kind of doing desperate things. Tell me about the writing of this album. The album i think one thing was different from the last one. Yeah we in twenty nine thousand. Nine we put a record called thrashing through the passion. there was a collection kind of a singles. We were putting stuff out as we can as we recorded it really which is exciting. I mean the technology now allows you to do that. And we know how to get at our fans right through the social media and whatnot. So we're putting that out and then we ended up kinda compiling them to make a release and that's cool but when you're releasing quote unquote singles that way. You're kind of always swinging for the fences. So for this record we decided early on. Let's make this an album and we didn't record it all at once. We recorded in two different sessions in choosing to make an album. It allowed me especially as lyricist to make some decisions in a way that kind of circle the wagons a little bit. Maybe make things make a whole. You know kinda create a bigger body of work than than just a collection of singles and. I think that's exciting. I like working that way. I grew up listening to albums. And i think that's kind of what we're good at it. I mean. I think that we worked with the that length of format before successfully and so. I think that was kind of fun for us to go back in that. We're able to create something. That was kind of overarching like that. You see it as as there's an arc story arc to the album or just means that you can take risks on certain songs the latter i think you if you're releasing singles. You're never gonna make the weird ending song. You're never going to say okay. That can be a little short song that sets up this next song. So album allows you to do things like that and in a sense. It's a concept record. But i was able to kinda early on identify themes and kind of keep writing at it and i thought you know the things i was thinking about at the time or things like certainly mental health but also kind of technology and late stage capitalism. Sort of how that all ties into it and how that affects the stories on the record. The record was all written and almost done by the end of twenty nineteen. And it's funny. Because i think back in at the time twenty nine thousand nine felt like a very heavy year. Yeah then we had twenty twenty one where this record kind of age like a you know like an oak barrel of whiskey or whatever you mentioned technology. And one thing i think you're album grapples with which i think is hard for songwriters is the effect of technology. You know i'm thinking. And i wanted to talk about the song spices. But that's about the return of an old flame. Who who's who sends somebody a photo overtaxed..

I can see more clearly because when you're reading with an actor what you wanna do is key into them may be present for them. I also found that. I loved everyone. And because i was reading with them. And you're trying to be in the scene with them and not that. I don't let everyone. But i was a lot more objective once. I got behind the camera so most of the time. I'm behind the camera. Sometimes if i really want to push actor in a certain way if i know the c. Needs to go somewhere. And i know exactly what needs to happen. I'll get in there and read. But mostly i don't But we have.

"You've also helped Well you've helped a lot of actors along the way but some careers are more provocative than others. One of them is a fellow who used to be called the rock and that's what everybody called him as how he was bill. That's who he was and now you'd probably have to tell kids that dwayne johnson used to be known as rock. But you were in sort of at the beginning. Yeah thank you. that's wonderful actually. Have a. I have a bunch of posters that are smaller and have a whole row. Reclaim and kaz scorpion. King was one of my very first movies as a casting director. Wow and that was his first big role. Yeah and and i remember that very well and then we went on to do a lot of other movies together and and again talk about a kind generous hard working human being who authored a story. Because it's so true. And i love it like. He's a rock. He's very famous. We'd have casting sessions in meetings and sometimes you'd have to get lunch. She would take his place and go into the kitchen and wash his dishes. Does that but also you know chemistry reading and reading with kids remember when we did gridiron gang again. We had found a lot of kids from schools. They didn't have a big backer round and he was right there the whole thing. It's you know and part of it is. We know is how someone came up. Did someone help them. Are they paying it. Forward and in many cases that is that is the reason but in some cases it's just that that's their personality and i. I think that part of why. Dwayne the rock johnson was able to make this sort of shift is that he's so damn likeable. And you you you like him. And and i think about how when you first saw him to.

It's been a long journey. Thank you for bringing up by the euro. You see so many different people and especially because you've been doing this for a long time. So you'll see someone like carey mulligan that many years ago and cast them. And you know it's sort of like when you watch a it has a big ensemble cast at you. Look back and you go. Oh my god. They're so they're so and so they're so and so because most people have worked for a very long time very few overnight. Success story yeah. Yeah i'm thrilled at. What's happening with kathryn. Hahn right now. She's been talented forever right. Welcome back everyone with wicked leah. There's a he's another fascinating character. Now you got co producer credit on an oscar winning movie crash and that is as diverse in the truth. Many that were as diverse and ensemble. As i've ever seen in one film and not all of them were equally famous Or established at the time. Can you talk a little about the process of a working on that project. Yeah that was a challenging and long process it to end the part of the reason why i got co credited is because i worked basically for two years trying to get enough cast attached to get the financing going because at time people were reading it and saying no one wants to watch a movie about racism. This is really depressing. You can't talk about this stuff you can't. This is a too dark too dark. But don cheadle coming on board was attorney point and that really helped us and piece by piece we put the cast together and there were many cast members that fell out before we actually got the movie made because it took so long so at one point he's legend was attached. And at one point forest whittaker. We had all these different actors that we kept setting and then they get another job in and leave so it was a labor of law than it was a long A very long process but again kind of one of those miraculous moments that happen when its first screened in toronto on the audience reaction was so Still kind of vocal and emotional and and then what happened all the way through with the film it was able to.

"Come visit my classic. Usc my students asked you a whole bunch of questions and some of them. I wouldn't have thought of asking and you answer them very well and very definitive one student asked who was the easiest character for you to figure out to cast you remember. I don't remember what i said. Then but in thinking about it now i would say chadwick boseman. That's what he said that night. What would i said then. Yeah the whole of faces not not in agreement. Yes who else would you cast. We need a talented versatile. African american actor of a certain age Who's vero and solid. He's got the chops to act this role not just pose And that would be chadwick. Boseman which which makes his his loss all the all. The that's a whole other monster but it is it is an an and poignant in in meaningful you know that he was able to play this role and really i think meant to play the part so right whereas there's been cases where we've seen a thousand more people with chadwick. Everyone knew was him. Felt clearly about that and went straight to it literally. Just call him on the phone and and asked him to play the role and he's deliver as you knew he would. Yeah someone else stealing all my students. Someone only on earth did you think of Having vin diesel be the voice of groups again. You have iron giant iron giant you because part of your job casting director is knowing what people have done in the past so he was voice and bred. Birds wonderful animated feature iron giant. So you knew he could do it. My laughing i i love the people. Talk about how he does. He does his own when they when they go to different countries in different languages Vin diesel remains. Grew up. So i so i saw this video going joe. Soy group gave her saying or yo- so a group so he was also a fan which which is really an essential part of the chemistry. I think in casting these parts is not only finding the right person but finding ninety seven last talent and ability but find someone who has the passion. And that's got everyone would want to say. I am groot for two hours straight. But that's fun is when he shows up to red carpets. He is being know. He's thrilled to be there and he loves being groot. And that's such a fantastic really all of the actors. I think that's part of what so magical about it. Is they understand that they are superheroes and that people are when they look at them. That's what they're seeing man the smiles. You know the charisma on all of them and the fact that they all seem to have a good time together. Which again is you. You put together these people and it boy does it work. Thank you and some people say to me. Well doesn't everyone want to be marble and i respond. No you would be surprised.

"It's terrible it's no Yeah everybody has his or her own saga. How did you find yourself in this role. Great question. I found myself accidentally in this role but as really a direct growth of my work in the theatre because i had gone to yale and studied acting and directing and iran a little theater there and then i went to new york city where i was working in a theater accompanied wonderful Ensemble studio theatre That theater company encourages and requires really very multidisciplinary approach. So if you wanna act better know how to run the lighting board and if wanted direct you better have done Least one stint as a stage manager. So you're looking at it from all these different angles looking at story tout and from there i working at ensemble studio theatre actually many years later because i started producing plays in doing that kind of thing and then i met recently garcia. Who worked with billy hopkins and bernie chelsea and she was a casting director who is also a theater director and i was assistant directing with her running off to do a million day jobs to pay my rent to end. She one point said what are you doing. Come cast this movie with me. And that was how i got started. I didn't even know. I was going to love it but i started casting with her. Basically three years went by before. I looked up when you buy the school john. What was your goal. What what did you think you're going. You want it to get well. I went undergraduate. I didn't go to the graduate school. I went undergraduate. And i had done theater as a kid my whole life so my goal was to go get a serious degree. I wanted to be a history major.

I became theater studies major and we studied all kinds of different things but really having some kind of foundation in dramaturge. -i has helped me very much in his career and frankly being a history.

Better be the actor you think is the perfect person to play the part because you have just done all your homework and you've covered every angle and you've left no stone unturned and you're ready to present your opinion.

Not really. I'm not superstitious person and ultimately. I just believed that then sporadic strikes when you went to can you know Reliance stop working you end up failing but hopeless is to take a breather and come back to it or just just willpower and plow through but depends depends on how much energy i have on the day.

But it's really hard wants to be out of that. That moment of moment inspiration does strike. You sort of should try and mind for as much as you get at the time. It's hard to get back into the frame of mind did you. You mentioned that. That being on tour with fleetwood mac kind of put you back in the crowd at house head space. Did it influence you on a musical level. Did somehow playing those songs take a different place musically when you started composing for this album musically but i couldn't say specifically will point to a songhua evoking Fleetwood mac mentality. It's just more the thrill of singing somebody else's songs. The scene high and outgoing mana. It definitely influenced what i wanted to do on this in a in a more sort of holistic. Wow spas i mean. That must've been an unforgettable experience for so many reasons. But is there any like one lesson that your time on the on the road with them taught you that really sticks with you. Well i mean meticulous about putting together musically. We had a two month rehearsal. Allowed innocent all night long on too but But we could have done it in a month but what. I really appreciated about that. It was gave the child so the songs to nuances of the reform records to be done really well and we were usually on the fly with crowded house and we would do. It took three days for his be outward of great gates but some of the nuances would get lost along the way and i'm reminded now that liam now oregon and mitchell all care about wants and they'd probably be listening to us playing the last ten years guy on that little.

"finns" Discussed on The Adoption Connection | a podcast by and for adoptive moms
"Hello ellen welcome the adoption connection podcast highways. A beer yeah. It's great to have you here. I would love it if you start by. Just telling us who makes up your family. Absolutely so I married to my wife. Jamie been married for sixteen years Seventeen years sixteen. Seventeen something like that We have right now. Five kids so our two oldest twelve year old daughter nine year old center biological kids we have six and seven year old daughters who adopted through foster care And right now we have a six month. Old foster son who we are in the process over on track to to adopt foster care has been a roller coaster in our families expanded and contracted lots of times over the years but we recently went through a really hard reunification. It's out it's awesome in that. Its reunification but she was foster daughter for Almost two and a half years for for majority of her life so that was really hard. So when i say five it's it's almost it's hard and painful to save five because a month ago it was six. I understand that Totally different story but we lost a daughter And it was the hardest thing to to not. I still count her. I just can't. I know it's different but i understand that feeling where the words come out but your spirit says it's not true. Yeah right that's right that so how did you decide to even embark on this journey of foster care and adoption A lot of nagging my wife. Jamie no In all seriousness. Though we we had you know son and a daughter and Like was good and You know felt very content just having You know my my two kids and being very happy with life and I should say that adoption runs in our family. I have two sisters who were adopted from china We have two nieces. Who were adopted through foster care as well So very familiar with a adoption And really didn't have any necessarily interest myself though in going through adoption and certainly growing up had many stigmas in my mind of what foster care was was all about Just ignorance on my part but You know we had senator daughter and my wife jamie was you know continued to impress upon asia burden that we had room in our hearts room in our home to care for children. It looked a lot like her bringing it up time and time again and me trying to put it off and avoid the conversation and Say okay and sort of humor jamie by thinking about it but really not giving it a whole lot of thought and i ended up having a really good conversation with a really close friend of mine at the time and he gave me some great advice and he said well if your wife has this burden and you know you're not sure why not explore her burden tested out And see if that is where. Maybe god's calling you and he also challenged me whether if if you're not sort of living on mission to care for vulnerable families and children. This may be a way to do that right. The bible calls us to care for the orphan and the widow. How're you doing that. So so i took that to heart. And i essentially said the jamie. Alright well it listen here my parameters here my guidelines kids younger than our kids in only one and we'll see how it goes sort of stepping into into into the pool right dipping my toe in but essentially in my mind thinking. This won't work out right. We'll have a kid for a month or two. It will work out it'll disrupt our kids lives and and that'll be that and i will have been able to say. Hey i did it. You know and obviously god had different plans and and we've been going seven years strong now but that's how we sort of got started..
How to Get Their Best Email
"Just having a wonderful conversation with my favorite personal trainer. Mia finn again. If you're listening via i love you. And she's got some great online programs bunch different offerings. You guys should check it out. I will put linked to her in our show notes because she is the inspiration behind. Today's she was saying you know. I have myself different emails. I have one email. That i use. When i just want the freebie and then i have the email that i used so that i make sure you don't miss something that we need to see or want to see and she just kind of asking like does everyone do that and i think the answer is yes the answer. Yes for you. I know the answer is yes for me in fact. I've got three different phony emails. That i use one that i opt into. I just wanna see. Swipe copy one that i opted into so that my staff doesn't have to weed through my online orders. Okay fine. it's because i'm embarrassed. About how much online shopping i do. And then my email address it. I use that i make sure i see everything or somebody on my staff is gonna see everything. Comes that inbox all right. The question is as an entrepreneur s. Who is building their email lists. How do you get daddy. Email the one that people actually check because think about it. if you don't if you're getting the spam email your follow up sequence is never getting to them your irresistible offer is never getting to them. You're like hey we haven't seen in a while. Here's a special discount. None of that is getting to them. None of it. So it's a one and done so couple things to remember. The first is this. You've got one chance to tell them that. You actually have a solution to their problem and that is why not electronic. Toot our own horn. I'm sure somebody else inspired me to do this. But we've been really bold about the concept of putting your offer in your very first email not shoving it down people's throat so if you opted into let's say for example are freemium for trying to figure out what you're saying is or a freemium for instant club hub like you want to learn how to do the swipe up whatever that very first female is going to give you what it is you ask for here. You go and that should be. The first sentence
Ethics: Is It OK To Break A Rule?
"Today. We're going to tackle an ethical question if you're a long-time listener of this show. You may have heard me. Ask you for your thoughts on this question before. Hi my name is finn for. I'm from seattle washington and my age is time that it might question is is located to do something you told not to do and then never tell anybody. We've talked about ethics in some of our other episodes like the one about how we treat animals differently depending on where we're from and how we're raised basically ethics is how you behave based on what you believe is right and wrong. You might hear fins question and think of course. You shouldn't break a rule and do something you're not supposed to. It is not okay to do something that you're not supposed to do. It's not okay to break rule when you break and don't tell anybody it's not good no because it would be bad. No that will be no because it's usually just mean to get in trouble because you're gonna big trouble. I okay that no because we knew it again trouble now because it's not good if you get into a no because you're sort of lying and not doing what people asked you to that was gabby gabrielle. Juniper elliott corwin prudence and cleo. They all told us. They think it's not okay to do something you're not supposed to and then not tell anyone but we also heard from some of you who think well maybe sometimes it is. Okay it depends on what it is like if you're told to stay in the house but something happens and you have to leave that slyke a different thing. It's not okay to not tell anybody but it you if you do have to like leave or do something that your parents are semi tells you not to do. Then you should do to should tell
Clinical trials underway to test jab efficacy for children in the UK
"Some queued for hours outside wall substitute library for walk. In short of the coluna virus vaccine. Three thousand jobs were given here during the day earlier. This week it was announced that fifty seven percent of all adults in the uk been given at least one shot but now could the nation's children also joining the lines. Trials are apparently on the way. Our deputy political editor. Nicholas cecil has stored nicholas. How young are we talking about here. Well at the moment scientists and health experts in bristol. The building children's vaccine said they have a study underway involving children who are teenagers. And this is a study using the astra zeneca jab. They're expecting shortly to be given the go ahead to start recruiting younger children as young as five and the reason why they're doing these trials is that so far all. The clinical trials have been adults to check that the vaccine was safe and worked in adults. And now they're checking out with it. It'd be equally safe and effective for for for children for people under eighteen benegas. Do we need to give children a virus facts. Because i thought you know the whole point of them. Going back to school was because young people don't get the serious effects of covid nineteen if the contract. This is a very interesting ethical question children as you say if they do get grown virus they are very unlikely to get the disease severely. But there's a big issue here of nuts about the circulation of the virus so this study will look at whether the vaccine works in children and then the the experts expect decision by the government in the summer about whether to start vaccinating children and professor. Adam finn who's from bristol university one of the leading experts on this. He was explaining that to vaccinate children just for the benefit of other people that that could be questionable and he would feel uncomfortable about that but he explained that actually if vaccinating children meant that the disease was kept under control and that meant that schools could reopen safely in september then there would be a benefit to children and therefore actually giving the jabs to children we would be beneficial only to them but also society
Esports League Rundown
"Start this week over here and most beautiful place. On god's green earth in downtown santa monica with the l. c. s. aright where the grass is green and. The pain is over fifty. We are starting with our week. Five results here starting at the top of the table. We've got an interesting rundown for you in terms of standings and by interesting i mean this should come as absolutely zero surprise to anyone who's been falling for any amount of time here this year in first place cloud nine at ten and two tied for second we have. Tsm and one hundred thieves at eight and four fourth place as a three way. Tie to round out your playoff teams evil geniuses dignatories and team liquid all remain in control of their destiny immortals to entire games behind in seventh place. Fly quest down there at four and eight and eighth and tied for ninth place. We've got seal g and golden guardians. Who that's for the in terms of standings. Let's talk cloud nine top of the table. In how did they do this week. Nine had a banger of a weekend. I'm really really satisfied with how this team performed this weekend. Everyone is looking fantastic right now. Honestly perks has some absolutely popoff. Plays on yasuo in the blank. This weekend He was looking awesome blabber. Just absolutely runs train on one hundred thieves on olaf. He's still looking amazing. I honestly don't understand how this guy still getting. Olaf when champion pool is more like an ocean. I guess you know. It's kind of hard to ban out. Everyone right yeah and then you know they also had just a pretty good win vs golden guardians. This was a really really good week for c. Nine they displayed a a show of dominance that i think is important for them to show versus lower tier teams and upper tier teams like hundred thieves the takeaway from this weekend see nine looking fantastic. I'm happy with this team. And my favorite thing about this team this season so far is they have displayed the ability to play like everything they can play. All sorts of different team calms they can play all sorts of different styles and be super successful on it so lots to love from. Cnn radio man. I wonder what it's like to be a fan of a team. That's like the best in the region. Can you feel so good what it feels like to be yankees fan fan now recently. Hey man at least. I always tell myself no matter how bad things get. At least i'm not. Cgi got even fan. Just seal g actually entire org. at least you're as an entity the idea mostly. Yeah yeah oh yeah. I was just gonna say overall c nine great weekend moving on. Yeah and i think a key point here is they did go up against one. Hundred thieves created separation against a team. That's currently tied for second. They did in just such an incredible manner. It was like every single lane. One like blabber just played out of his mind perks actually styled on monday on the blank it was just such an awesome game. In addition to that there was actually a little not really an interview but ls during. I think it was a co starring. He was doing as well. Fudge seanang fudge came on just chatted back and forth with him a little bit and revealed that perks. Basically said yeah. It's just demonte. I could totally take leblanc into him and fucking popped off. I think he got a level. Three solo kill level three or level. Four to play a little vision. Game with perks had award kinda thwarted the whole thing and it cost him onto his life. Basically and the game like there's no way or less. Yeah that snowballed everything out of control so his brutal really really. Well played for nine showing that even if they were close in the standings. This matchup is just so nine favored. There's also been a lot of chatter specifically from people who are in the know that one hundred thieves has a major mental block against the nine. They absolutely hate playing against him. So little fun. Little tidbits for y'all there. All right seni- jumping down to. Let's talk about the two teams tied aid right now for second place. Tsm and hundred thieves. We'll start with the less fun. One which is of course hundred thieves. Who has kinda struggled a little bit throughout the course of this entire split. Not looking nearly as strong as i think we all would of hoped. Jack's talked me about their weekend. All right so other than the cloud nine game that we just touched on mcleod nine blew them out of the water. Hundred thieves mostly had a good weekend. They beat seattle g. They had a close call but they then recovered from their close call. Took control of the game back from seattle jian won the game Close calls is more of like they. Lucked out into a wake-up hopefully they don't make same kind of mistakes of leading finn. Just do ridiculous nar things when his team's losing miserably they literally flipped a to k gold lead into four k gold back. Yeah and flip within like eight minutes. Yeah it was stupid. That's nuts g. You can hear this hill shawn's voice because the game had it but from the perspective of hundred thieves like other than the one mistake that was such a huge swing the game. Well they played really well against dignatories capping the shit out of fate god and the rest of the team playing fine or or well depending on the player like demonte didn't have a great day in general. Don't they didn't have a great weekend in general. Let's be honest but then yeah the cloud nine game like to cut blown out in twenty four minutes. It was brutal you mentioned it was monte attempts to do a bush play like bait something to get away and that was the only thing like someday played without respect for fudge it all and got punished repeatedly for it like it was rough. It was really rough.
Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author, Scientist, and Renowned Polymath Jared Diamond Discusses the Derisive Term 'Finlandization'
"Is the first country that you discuss in the book. Outsiders uses derisive term called finlandisation to describe the nation's relationship with the soviet union. Now russia you confess to being a little bit guilty of this yourself during. I think it was one of your earlier first visits to that country. Why defense take offense at the term finlandisation. And what is it. That non-finn seem to misunderstand. Sure finlandisation is a a nasty word. It's a blaming word that non-finns particularly germans and other europeans and americans applied to finland after world war tooth in world war. Two finland got attacked by the soviet union whose population is about forty times that of finland. The finns fought fiercely. Lots of them got killed. But finland managed to retain its independence but finns learned a lesson from the war against russia. Which is. let's make sure we're not going to get into that mess again. And what we'll do is. We'll talk constantly with the russians at every level from the president downwards so that the russians are not suspicious of us. will they'll know what we're thinking The russians will know that the anoc can be surprised by making an alliance with some other country attacking finland by the back door. Finland's learned learned and they were very careful not to offend the soviet union when the soviet union vade hungry. The finns kept their mouth shot. Okay germans and american set that is that's a lack of courage should speak out against the soviet invasion of hungary and finish. His response was if we speak out. That's gonna have no effect on the soviet union but we learned that we cannot offend the soviet union. Because hundred thousand dollars got killed from making that mistake. That's finlandisation namely a small country being very careful about large country when i first went to finland. I'm embarrassed to say that that one my my best friend in finland who was a veteran of the winter war. I told him so. Why being so careful about russia because if you get into trouble the united states and britain france will protect you. Oh god there's nothing worse i could say. Because the finns had been deserted by all their allies and the finns learned that awesome viable is going to depend upon ourselves. That's finlandisation it worked finland. It's not gonna work for the united states and so there was a sense that they couldn't afford to be brave and speak out against the soviet union as much as others would have liked because they were realistic and they knew that no one else may come to our aid. If we do. Why do we want to get one. Hundred thousand people killed again. Eighty thousand about children driven into exile. No big and be. We're not gonna be stupid again. We can be careful. We will talk constantly with the russians will remain a liberal. Democracy will remain a rich country investing heavily in education. All the we're going to do differently is we're going to talk constantly with the russians. So that they will trust arson and interestingly the united states after the fall of the soviet union sadly in the nineteen nineties while the soviet union was there in a big threat. The united states was talking constantly with the soviet union but with the fall of the soviet union we began to take russia less

Amazon planning a wall mounted Echo
"Moving into the smart home amazon plans a wall mounted echo. According to bloomberg in i okay. Y'all know that. I have been adding things to my house to make it smarter like the infrastructure. So i i actually just added a fin. We'll talk about that in a week or two when i when i start seeing results but added a fin water monitoring device. I added a device from a company called ting that tracks. Basically you plug it in. It looks for electrical fires. I have added an quanta. Water heater controller in product. And so what am i saying. I'm saying these are doing for the sexy devices there. Yeah the unsexy but was interesting here. What i'm discovering is my first night in the finn was like we have detected a very weird thing happening in your house and they sent me a notification but my phone was on. Do not disturb. Sign my house wasn't actually flooding. But i was like you know what i need. I need like a panel. i know right. Maybe like the equivalent of a flashing light. That's like hey these parameters are happening in maybe shakeup deal with it because if it were really a flood. I'd want to know and i don't have the fancy finn that shuts off my water for me so actually thought this was kind of neat because it would be nice to have like a command center that you could add a glance. Look and be like okay. Everything's functioning normally. Yeah i mean we rely on our smart displays quite heavily in our house. Even though i have my phone with me all the time. Not everybody does. And it's really handy to just see something pop up that you know you need to know this right now without looking for your phone or missing a notification. This is actually one of the big downsides of my transition homekit. there's no smart display unless you have an apple. Tv and you're watching tv so bloomberg is saying that amazon's working on this. It's ten or thirteen inch diagonally measured Obviously can control smart devices. It'll have the typical amazon services from music videos. Video chatting with a camera built in should be pretty skinny thin unlike some of the smart displays. Because this can be wall mounted and bloomberg says it's could retail for between two hundred two fifty. Maybe by the end of this year. Anything can happen because this is just them. Hearing from sources we amazon has new official comment on this. But i think these ecosystems are overdue for something like that a lot of people used ipads they mount ipads to their wall and use those. Yeah so you wouldn't have to do that and you could use your ipad ipad actually so

Not just it is what lucky meant today what to have that presence you felt fain and it was adopted Finn in writing that chemistry is incredible but it was just write.

I'll strike aside straight up I totally agree and I you know I think listen. I think that with any character yet any character don, Poli market because think you know there are some stuff he goes on to say about I knew exactly what to do if Ryan I knew exactly what to do have caught I rent I disagree and I'm thinking they had any plan for the might they didn't have any plan for them although what you could say is obviously Jong Up more screen Tom we know that thanks to you. Might you boy Mike Mike Mike some sense but In a time where you know that is a ton of black characters in onscreen. You know you just kind of make kind of a joke. And he just gets forced pushed away from from right is this guy he's been writing for three films on tonight I met.

So that's again a catfish which is. Going to go into that minefield but. He's saying that and he's like well, if I'm so important to story while minimalist me for the risk of upsetting a few people internationally when this is to be for everyone star was east four if he wanted everybody should be onboard regardless of anything.

It's not these people having the goal to be something of the white it's The fandom. Has, China toxic elements sometimes, but yet Disney Disney how culpable for a lot but also again bring it back to the. Poor planning because had had disney given us a great faint. Different story and all very obvious society. But you know had feigned being from the center or been given solid story and that'll be people out there. who think he was given one of course but.
