With ‘The Underground Railroad,’ Barry Jenkins looks squarely at Black trauma

"Underground railroad was a network of abolitionists routes to free slaves. But what if it was an actual railroad with a train chugging toward freedom? That's the premise of Colson Whitehead's Pulitzer Prize winning novel, now adapted by Barry Jenkins into a 10 episode miniseries. This isn't a straightforward, inspirational narrative like Harriet. This combines the brutality of roots with the social commentary of watchman and a hint of magical realism like the Polaroids. Press to some ADO is empathetic as the lead Joe Edger tennis sinister as the villain, slave catcher and child star chased Dillon is his precocious psychic. I still have eight episodes to go. But judging by the first two were in for a powerful train ride by a master conductor. I'm Toby Toby film critic Jason Fraley, giving the underground railroad for five stars. So far, dolphin

Sometimes Something Is Worse Than Nothing

"Is better than nothing. Anything is better than nothing or so. The story goes but on heater core. Nonsense and gibberish on that one. And don't get me wrong. I totally agree with the sentiment. The intent is give it a try. Have a crack drew do something try anything rather than just do nothing. But when the finished product of your attempt of you're trying turns out to be rubbish. Then don't release it to the world. Don't publish launch it. Because in doing that what you're saying to the world is i'm okay with this. I'm okay with rubbish. I m okay with this sub-standard product and a case in point. Every morning. i walk past the conference lobby of a five star luxury hotel. And it's all glass at the front so you can see inside and recently. They've been working on upgrading their digital signboard. And what they've done is they've made it about twenty five or thirty percent wider than it was before and a few days ago they finish the job pulled down. All the hoarding turned on the screen. But they've used graphics from before they've used the graphics and images that were formatted for a smaller screen. And so what happens now on the biggest green all those images are distorted and out of proportion and somebody has still decided that something is better than nothing better that we put something up there rather than put nothing up there. And i would argue that. That's not correct. They would have been much better off. Turn the screen off. We're taking down those graphics and having nothing out there rather than having shop they rather than having that sub-standard result because it certainly doesn't look luxury certainly doesn't look five star but somebody has decided something is better than nothing and i would argue that sometimes. Somethings actually worse than nothing.

S6 E7 - How YOU can build resilience in the face of chronic conditions

"This is the we served now. What podcast and if you're anything like me you've had a ton of questions after leaving the military and the lack of answers looking frustrated and probably a little confused. This show is here to help you make sense of what can sometimes be well just some craziness that is post military life so you can do more than survive. You can thrive my name. Is aaron perkins. I'm us army. Combat veteran husband. Who beautiful wife daddy to two amazing kiddos and the author of resolve a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the process of rediscovering purpose in your post military life sue. You can thrive so the questions we talk about on the show you know. A lot of them are direct questions. You know how to use eleven gi bill. What's new for veterans. twenty one. Those are just a couple of things we talked about in the season. This is a season six episode. Seven and we're tackling a tough question today and there's no single answer to that's the toughest part about this question so before we dive into the question. I want you to think of math equations for minute. Just really simple ones. Two plus two. What's two plus two. It's four right so very simple. Very easy math equation vice. What's tuplice to. You're always going to say you're always going to know. Won't let's four but if i say what math equations when you finish them we'll have four as that end number and be like man. I don't know that's almost an unlimited number of answers. What's the same thing today. Because today's question is surrounding how you build resilience when a family member has a chronic condition and there was a virtually unlimited number of answers to this question. But i'm going to do my best to unpack those and there's a lot to unpack here so let's get started so my son. Christopher was born in two thousand eight and he had a kidney disease and still. Has this kidney disease to this day and We knew that he had some problems with his kidneys. Because they found the these problems on an ultrasound. When i was in iraq and my wife was still in germany and The the did the ultrasounds that hey you know what we recommend you go ahead and head back to the states because you know you can get you can get better medical care there in the states and so my wife moved back what she thought was temporarily and ended up being a permanent move I- redeployed early on and a compassionate reassignment and Got to fort knox kentucky which was the closest. Us army post Where to where. My son was getting his medical care and for the first couple years of his life he went through. Thing was eleven or twelve operations and Numerous other procedures to get these kidneys fixed. Now today. it's amazing it. You would never know. A single thing was wrong within the last couple of times. He's gone to the kidney. Specialists are like look his kidney. Function is great. He's doing very very well. And so that was a trial by fire so to speak. That was kind of like. Hey this this is A method i guess. A real world Test to see if you. Aaron are resilient and so. I learned a lot about resilience just in that experience. You know because again this is not just a flash in the pan you know Something one thing happened and then we had to deal with that. You know a broken limb or you know an accident or something like that. It was a chronic condition and again still is to this day but i learned a lot about resilience through dealing with my son's challenges with that disease and if you think back to military life right and this is army specifically i have to expect that all the services are like this but they build resilience in to the training plan. You know and as important as that is personal resilience all together now the past two months. I'll be honest with you. Guys have been absolutely brutal. They've been crazy because not only does my son have a kidney disease but my wife has chronic conditions as well so the past couple of months. My wife and i got her permission to tell some of her story. Her story is man. If if you ever meet my wife asked her to tell you her story because it is absolutely jaw dropping. How she is where she is today. You know based on where she came from and an all the the difficulties she came through to become the woman she is today but just in these past couple of months We experienced quite the scare and that scare It it seemed like it was cancer. Just be honest so for A while we were getting tests and then waiting for more tests and we got those tests and We said okay well. We're just going to get through this. You know no matter what happens. We're we're in this together and we're gonna stick together through this well. My wife goes to get a biopsy and she gets this biopsy. She's in recovery. The biopsy went fine. It was painful but it went fine. nothing was unexpected But it went fine while she was in recovery and this recovery was just a quick recovery. Just a few hours. She had what is called a ti or a mini stroke. And so we're like. oh my goodness how. In the world number-one how in the world is this happened number. Two how do we deal with this now. You know this is. This seems so much more serious than what it The what started out to be. We thought it was going into get a biopsy and and now here you've got to stay in the hospital. You've gotta be admitted well actually admitted to one hospital then transferred to another because at first hospital was too small and they didn't have the right doctors. There had to be transferred to another hospital and then finally a few days later she gets out. She's getting slowly better. But we still don't have those answers right. Don't have the answers in the biopsy because it takes a week or more to come back and you know she finally gets these answers and they're like yeah. Well we really don't know what it is. We really don't know what it is. It's not cancer. But we're not sure. And so they said. Well we want to send you to an autoimmune specialist and and those Those doctors are are booked up forever and well we can get you. Maybe like june july and so here we are still waiting on those answers and obviously all of this is stressing her out now. Little bit about that mini stroke just answered stress for her brings about these These symptoms where It stress basically over stresses her brain and she ended up needing to quit her job. And you talk about frustrating. And i don't mean frustrating like all you can't work anymore but she was super frustrated at like me. Why in the world is this happening. And and you know. What can i do to help and to build that resilience right but this is. This is not a story about my son. This is not a story about my wife specifically. Today's show is all about building that resilience when your family member has a chronic condition. And so i'll just tell you over. This was going with my wife. I stopped everything i could. You know some of you may have seen an email from said. Hey sorry. Our live mental health event An open dialogue mental health is going to be cancelled if your sponsor for the event. You've already paid. You know we're going to refund your money Which which already did. But there were so many things that i was doing that having a hand in that i said you know what i've just gonna stop doing those things and focus on what matters most right now focus and for me. That's my family. And and i think that is a key element to resilience is focusing on what you need to focus on and again. I know that sounds vague. Right but what is it that you personally need to focus on. Because i can't tell you what you should focus on. I can't tell you that. I wish i could but unfortunately i can't at so. I resigned my position from a nonprofit board Alabama veteran here in here in obviously alabama But also got some help from facebook in preparation In preparation for this episode and Some of you responded and told me how you build resilience in your own personal life. And i want to go through some of those responses real quick and then i'll dive into the five science backed strategies to build resilience but on facebook right. You know one of my friends. He said it. Because i asked i said look. I'm news and helping an oak upcoming podcasts. What are your go-to strategies for building resilience in your personal life and one of my friends. He's kind of a kind of a jokester but he says he says avoiding people and puts us little laughing face or winking face at the end of the comment but the the fact is sometimes that is the to do to help you build resilience and focus on what matters most to you another person. I and i love this. She said it's all about the thought life. It's about your mindset and and she also she said. I'm practicing telling myself no just to exercise that muscle while you know what that's not a bad idea and so there was a number of really good comments here but a couple of them Not a couple of them. I should say a couple of themes came out number. One was faith how my friends saying you know what. I'm learning to do what i've needed to do for years. And that's focus on my faith. You know my faith pushes me past that present crisis or would i'm perceiving as a crisis right you know made. My faith is reading and prayer. And you guys know if if you've listened to this podcast before that you know. This isn't absolutely faith-based podcasts. You know and and my my faith is that of christianity of following jesus But faith has been incredibly important for those seeking to build resilience in a personal lives and Additionally is time for self reflection so one thing is faith is the one theme that came out in the second was self reflection scheduled time for relaxation. And so using those hobbies or those Chill lacks kinda relaxing moments and building those in to your everyday life so that you can handle those stressors right And i wanna mention one of the thing this was. This was a a another theme. That that i know i said only two. There's actually three themes that came out and that's relationships. Relationships are so critically important and one guy actually When my friends here in the area said whoa to him and this is a scripture verse. Actually he's fourteen. He says woe to him who was alone when he falls and doesn't have another lift him up because look lifestyle right. It's really really tough. And the truth is we can't do it by ourselves. We weren't meant to we weren't designed to So it's really really important to have those people in our lives to help us when we can't help ourselves so having those strong relationships around us In a one one other one other comment. I wanna to point out before you get to the five science back strategies for building resilience practice resilience by practicing being resilient each time. Something happens to us. We need to put that in her memory so next time that happens to us even if even if it never happens again we we have that memory of what we did as we figured out you know kind of how to go through that process the first time now. What does that have to do. With a chronic condition you a family member having a chronic condition. All those things apply. They apply directly. Okay so five. Science back strategies to build resilience and this will take just a few minutes number one change the narrative. So look when something bad happens whether it's a single event or a long term Kind of episode right. We often relive the event over and over in our heads and it's called ruminating rehashing the pain and and it it's like we're spinning our wheels. Basically you know There's a study. Said you know what maybe try expressive writing. You know to try gaining some new insights into the challenges in your lives. You know there are a few different ways. You can manage that but that you can change the narrative But one of the one of the ways is to reframe it in another Another perspective or another light. How do you that a one of the things you can do is talk to those in your life that you have those strong relationships with another reason why relationships are so incredibly important. That's the first one number to face your fears. Sure like man. I don't know what's going to happen. In my spouse's life from my child's life because of this chronic condition face it running away is not going to help and when i say face it i i don't mean just dive headlong into a by yourself and tackle it all alone. Another reason why those relationships are so important. So even if you know it's your spouse that's going through something being able to talk to someone else about it about what's going on in your life and how you were feeling is so incredibly valuable. You can't even put a number on it so number one going to change the narrative number to face your fears and face those fears with someone else number three and i'm gonna put this link. This is a great article will put this link in the show notes. You can check out this entire article yourself but practice self compassion. Think of it. Think of what. You're going through right now and think of that in someone else's perspective like if someone else had the same challenges you were having right. Now maybe your child is a chronic condition or your parent or your spouse and they came to you and said hey i. I'm having this problem you know. My wife had a cancer scare. She had many stroke and then We sort of know what's going on. Oh gosh i i don't know what to do. What would you do. Chances are you would be compassionate with them and we know fear versity they can make us feel really alone and we wonder why were the only ones feeling this way and what exactly is wrong with us and check chances are. There's nothing wrong with us at all. You know the there's this real problem with And with i within the veteran community that we all seem to think we're alone and the truth is were not and another reason why you need those strong relationships so you can remember. Hey i'm not alone this but practice self compassion be compassionate to yourself number four meditate and. I know that meditation sometimes gets a bad rap. But i will say. I've tried it myself meditation. Mindfulness and it is a wonderful stress. Reliever i will let you do your own research on that. But there is such value in meditation number. Five and this one is critically important. Cultivate forgiveness. And here's the thing. When it comes to a chronic condition of family member whether that's your spouse or child or your parent or or sibling you can sometimes get this. You can get mad right. And what is there to be mad at. Who is there to be mad at. Well you know you can be that nature you can be mad at god. You can be frustrated but holding a grudge is only going to hold you back. And and that expands far beyond just the Know caught debating forgiveness for forgiveness. Sake right extends will beyond that in well beyond the chronicle condition idea and goes further into your entire life because my pastor says it like this he says holding a grudge against someone is like setting yourself on fire and hoping. The other person dies from smoke inhalation. I know sometimes we feel like man. I've got to hold on to this grudge. I'm not going to forgive but cultivate forgiveness. And there's an entire chapter dedicated to forgiveness in the resolve book. And so i love you to check that out Head over to kurds fight again. Dot com click on. Get the book and you can find out more about forgiveness what that looks like. In the veteran's life look stress and struggles come in many forms in life adversity trauma. Fear shame betrayal of trust. Look there's a lot of things you can do though that can help you learn to cultivate forgiveness so those five science backs strategies to build resilience number one change the narrative face your fears in practice. Self compassion go easier self number four meditate again. You do your own homework. Do your own research there. Maybe it works for you. Maybe it doesn't. But i know in my own life it has helped kaminsky and number five avait forgiveness l look. I know we have a lot of questions. We all have a lot of questions in our lives but the most important question we can ask ourselves is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith. In jesus christ while i hope this episode has helped. I'd definitely hope that you've gotten something out of it. If you have would you go to. I tunes and leave us a five star review. That would be amazing. And if you if you didn't like the episode and you're like hey. I learned something. Would you please go leave five star review. Those reviews actually helped so much. If you're like you know what. I'll leave review but maybe not five stars both. We'd like to hear those two so again. If you have any questions for us at all that you would like us to address here own the show. Send us a message podcasts. At courage to fight again dot com. And like i said at the beginning of the show. If it's on your mind it's worth exploring. Well thank you so much for listening. I'll see you next time We served now. What is a production of courage to fight again.

LinkedIn Lead Generation with Sonda Eunus

"Let's talk a little bit about how you help your clients you know you. You've actually started out there. And you kind of made that transition from management solutions into marking sessions. Because obviously everyone listening to this podcast. If you're a business or you know you have to make money and blue. Is you have a hobby. Not of business. How did you begin. Changing from here. With management to helping with bringing in revenue. Because that's that's key you can influence revenue in a business. You're going to have a sound impact. So that transition happened for you so it was actually about you know finding a way to provide tangible intangible services right so instead of saying hey let me come in and consult with you and show you how to become more efficient and house. Make more money in the long run. It's more about. Hey you're gonna bring it on and you're gonna you know in one month and up with a brand new website and your social media's going to be up in your platforms they're going to be optimized in your group. My business account is optimized. You know and i mean we trust me just. We get started in one month but even when we sign on clients we tell them. Hey you gotta give us at least three months for you to really start. Seeing all of these efforts picking up right and that's just digital marketing. Just how it works because we can sell you the world but it's not. I'm dependent on us. You know what i mean would search engine optimization for example we can be doing everything we can for the package that we sold you but if somebody if your competitor is spending five or ten times more on odds van for those same keywords than they already have an advantage but again but that's where everything kind of comes together as a package and that's where you really want to figure out okay. Let's say you wanna do the online presence package. We will get you through this journey where you're going to end up with an amazing website that converts you're going to end up with great social media platform ages with followers were hosting for you every single day. Wise the day right. It's relevant content branded content. It speaks with your audience. We are hosting in groups for engaging feeble. you know we're creating back links for were zooming search engine optimization both on the website as well as off the website ongoing words doing online review management. So you're seeing that you're getting more reviews. More five star reviews. You're getting feedback. i'm you're seeing. Your email is the rowing. You're seeing that your cost per click for your ads is going down and now you're getting more results from the same ad budget or even lower than what you had right so when you're able to show them those tangible results then that's really the best way that you can then sell services and because you already have these people that are telling about youths through their friends and their colleagues right and i'm lucky enough to be in a community where our small business community is very very involved and everyone knows each other really really well. I'm so it's kind of like you. Start picking up speed then it snowballs right because it's all about word of mouth and that's really what i preach Yes we're marketing agency. And yes. we focus on digital marketing but networking is my big thing. Because it's all about connections right whether those connections are live connections or whether those connections that you're forming on link then ride or on facebook or on the digital World as well so it's really just all about connections that yeah that's kind of how we were able to start know seeing a lot more success by able to show those angelo results and people were like okay. I see what these guys got from you. So how do i get in you. Know right and ukraine talk about a few different approaches. You search engine optimization. Which as you mentioned you expect overnight success story i mean you can make tangible differences quickly it seo but it is a marathon not a sprint and matter of a snowball effect in the more you work. As more success you'll see in cambridge You're gonna invest more. You might get a faster response if you do it. Well and i can take some testing before you get there. It's just nature of the game it to any kind of advertising. that's test when it comes to advertising. You tested those at work you you you try something else and shot you. You have data experience but made the promise to getting kind of dig into your brain a little bit of. How are you getting your clients. These days because i understand you're doing a lot of that to lengthen and a lot of people saying i would love to learn how to use link and tap into that huge resource of business professionals. How do i get started in their opener. On question absolutely i will go into lengthen like to say that at this point we are not doing lengthened generation For ourselves just because the referrals are coming in so quickly that i am just working on keeping up with the referral. So i'm not a place. That is an amazing place to be Ring thin is definitely a huge wade sues. Dr generating leads. It does take a little bit of time. But especially when you're just starting out It's an incredibly affordable and effective way to get leads on something before you heard. Yes out you know i love. Is you said there about referrals because you you talked about. Making connections and connections you real word their relationships because you're not going to get a referral from somebody you haven't built that no like entrust actor was so clearly you're doing the once you make connections. There's a little bit more than say he. I have five thousand connects linked. Then nobody cares. I have five thousand people. I'm actually communicating with you like me. They responded engage. That's a whole different ballgame. And so i just want to make that assessment there because if you're getting all referrals that's it shows the power of getting started and then making that transition so he's pointed out before we dive into lengthened side of things. I think for here what you wish you had in front of you to get you down to past. Before he hit the fully referred type business. You have now. Yeah and you know what we did with lincoln. As far as lead generation we were before covid using a lot or selling event vendor booths as well as event sponsorships. So as i mentioned we are in event marketing company and a well marketing agency that specializes in event marketing at this point so we hosted over fifty different types of events and twenty nineteen and a lot of those were exposed with different types of vendor booths and sponsors and so that was something where we constantly needed new people and we were constantly doing lead generation. Rival lengthened was amazing for that. And i actually developed training that i was teaching team on how to do this on my so basically it all starts with. Let's say you are brand new. Let's say you don't even have a lincoln account get right used by setting it up right you start by putting in as much information as you possibly can make sure that your bio looks good. Make sure that your bio highlights your skills your experience as well as your passions right if you don't have much experience but a lot of the people that are on my team are very young you know i have a great relationship with our local college and so i get a lot of insurance and then after three months i hired them right by i get them and they do not have a lot of experiences. We work on writing their byles together. It's really about while okay. Maybe you don't have much to talk about yet. But what are you passionate about. Would you truly enjoy doing right. Would you see yourself during so things like really matter as well because at the end of the day you want to tell people who you are as a person not necessarily just list your resume. That's not what the really wanna see right. And then of course in your experience yes you will put whatever positions mad and yes the more experience you have the better ride but at the same time it's still about personality still about is kind of like a cover letter right when you're applying for a job a lot of employers myself included. I care more about the cover letter. Then the resume itself because it's not as much about the experience that you have as it is about the attitude that you have and the mindset that you have and from. You went hiring if i can see that you have a good attitude and that i can train you than i don't care. It could never work in this industry or gun. What i'm hiring to you. Because i can sell that you will be able to do it with the right training. So that's kind of how you want to set up your length and you want to bring that out there. You want to be warm and genuine. Be yourself and then of course you also want to have a very professional. Had sean right. If it's not a professional headshot please get one or at least say a very clean image of yourself. You know. Just right about here right. Like short was shoulders above. Do not good something where you know. You're holding your baby or something like that. It's just it's not the platform you know what i mean. There's i'm gonna play. This is something where people are coming to see you as a professional. So you want to eat

How to Pick a Great Contractor

"Home building is a bit of like the wild west. Right now there's Explosive demand a lot of people who want to build or buy tiny houses and regulations are starting to catch up With with the tiny house building process but On all there are a lot of great builders out there but also some bad ones and so A question that. I see all time from people in my online community. Tiny house engaged elsewhere. Is you know what. What should i look for when i'm talking to a builder when i'm when i'm hiring a builder and I was curious if we could just start at the very beginning. Maybe what are your tips like before you even pick up the phone or write an email to a contractor a builder you know. Is there anything that that you know what. What should that person have like ready before. They contact even contact anyone. Let me back you up a little bit further than that and then yeah please john walk you through. You know out of the tip but if you sort of think about it. Here's the reason we started. Great bill you sort of think about the process to find a contract very different than the search to find anything but they onli- a laptop or aristocracy whatever obviously buried and so and we started great built the realize that there is no great way to do this really the way that people have been doing this than the stone ages is a. Ask a friend you know. What kind of contractor do you recommend you know. who did you use it. you like. Who built your kate right now. That same person. So that's that's been working forever but then option number two kind of sock option number two. Is you get online. And through other review sites all the yelps and all the various sites and opened the reviews are true which these days you know and look at pictures and all the contractors rate at four or five stars and that process is not great. That's what the yellow pages was like twenty thirty years ago i'm probably dating myself here right and And so there's no really good way way option for once. Great option number. Two kinda sucked but we thought like. How do you really figure out a way to find great contractor if you If you don't know someone personally or if you don't have a friend that knows somebody because the problem is that you know you're where we work in southern california in la county alone one county with twenty thousand licensed general contractor. Okay so again tons to choose from right and the other statistic. We found that is amazing and i. I bet you'd be surprised by this. Is that fifty percent of people who work with contractor who hire contractor. There was a survey done about this. Have a bad experience with it. So of those twenty thousand you pick ten thousand. You can have a good experience. You pick the other two thousand. You have terrible experience so we said there's gotta be a better way and that's why we started great bills and all john kind of continue the conversation about what it means to then a good contractor and how we seek out good contractors. You're so as as paul said we always. We agree with it. The number one best way to find a good contractor is from referral. Someone you know either in the industry or with relevant experience that has done a project like this before it. My neighbor just finished the kitchen remodel. i talked to them. It came in at a good price and they were happy with the experience. My search is over. I'd probably already found a good fit. But if i'm not fortunate enough to have the just the right neighbor next door or a coworker or a real estate agent who can refer me to a good contractor. I'm left with the many many options on all the other sites in yellow pages and otherwise so what we do to kind of reinforce good contractor or all the same things that anyone can be doing It just takes time. It takes for expensive and so it's not so much finding a good contractor but more so screening out the bad contractor

It started as an app. not even named tiktok. that was people lip synching to music musically. Proprietor for i was yeah. Yeah yeah so yeah. We're we're in an environment where y- that's putting a chip on the board but the board is is it relent wheel and you're you're picking a number from one to thirty six and that doesn't always seem very smart. I'm gonna ask you guys some. You know advice for each of the three leaders in a moment. But i want to try to get a few political tactic questions. Out of the way. Stephen carter one of the big questions that i always get when when i have people asking me for advice. If they're running a campaign for a candidate is can staff manage platforms or delete. And i'm curious. The rules have been written on this. But they're flexible right and like in a two thousand and twenty one world. If the account is in the name of the person should they be running it or is it okay for staff to run it. Do you feel like the rules have changed. That's my first question. I wanna post both of you. Yeah i think the rules have changed. I think the rules have changed because of advertising so for example. Facebook facebook especially as an advertising vehicle for campaigns. The the stuff that goes up there. You know there's much less interaction that's not managed by staff. I mean comment comment fields. It's just such a fucking cesspool. No one's no one's really. You have to be part of your little group to get positive stuff. So facebook. I think is managed by staff a lot i think instagram is managed by staff sometimes but the better accounts are managed by the individual. I think twitter is managed by the individual because it is so reactionary and it is so dangerous You definitely don't want to be the staffer who who posts my life. I just hit all the who was that one fucked my life david swann. That was There was a blizzard in edmonton or something. Like that and david. Swann was the leader of the liberals who were the official opposition at the time and his. Ea woke up looked outside the very reasonable reaction of. Oh my god look at this. Took a picture with fm l. david. Swann even know what fm l. was and there was so much chatter though if people being thinking david. Swann was really cool. Apologize profusely. I think that twitter's risky and so because of that..

"Move past. don't give anything back. Don't admit mistake and everything will be fine. So i now ask every question risking pissing off corey but it's literally enjoying little italy at the segments title which is great carter. What should you're seeing these these numbers on board. You're seeing the vaccines come online. What should our friends in the conservative party. Consider doing right now. Step back leave it aside move on. Well no i think they still have to prepare for their election I would move to the economy as soon as people start to feel like. The vaccination issues is Going to be solved. And the and the pandemic is going to be solved We're going to move to needing to address. The high unemployment levels the economic uncertainty of individual families and the overall economy. And i think that those are all things it play really well for the conservatives in fact far better than bitching and moaning about vaccine distribution at same. Not same question to you. But i wanna talk to you about The trudeau government here. Because we've always talked about their issues management risk that they constantly have they take the victory lap before the races even done. There seems to be an element of that. Which is perhaps the reason why i keep bringing this topic up is not necessarily to track vaccine numbers but to track the political promise versus the political reality in this case. It seems like a good news story with one. Vaccine approved a second one perhaps coming online. Any advice you'd have to the trudeau government around their victory lap or how they message around the vaccination schedules and the vaccination timelines going forward knowing that it's probably better news than it looked even based on their their promise. Scheduled for march and september. Don't take a victory lap and if you're the conservatives don't don't let them take a victory lap in fact that's where trudeau is most vulnerable because we are still behind. We are still well back in the list of countries in terms of vaccination rates here..

He chose one start thinking he was actually giving a fight. Thank you got some senses blathering. He wants to interject with god. Thank you know me well enough to know.

We started off with the ambition to political podcast last week. We did a tight two minutes on butter this. We're doing some really interest forensic analysis on writing style and pattern here. I really liked this. Carter carter i need to ask you. They have given us one star. What are we giving the review. Oh it's a It's an f. Total fail go. Fuck yourself how this comes out in my mouth. You know like you. Hey i don't come to your workplace and your work. You might make probably like she she or he is probably like been fired from the law firm that they work at all they can do.

The execution of what we wanted to do. We're killing and so thank you to all our listeners. Even the ones who who have left us let's move on to our next segment our next segment. Of course the check into piss off corey carter. We are talking about flaxseeds. This is the basic corey said to of course it does boldfaced text messages. He increased the size of his. I message fond just to make sure. I don't even know how you do that but he did. I don't know how he doesn't. He's amazing he's figured out a way. He's a loyal to me. We know we know vaccine here. We go do it. Stephen carter astrazeneca vaccine has been approved here in canada five hundred thousand doses on their way thoughts. Well you guys know that. I've i've been railing on this quite a bit. And the proof will be in the pudding but it looks like the puddings getting made and Looks like vaccinations are on their way. I think the johnson and johnson vaccination is going to common. Now we're getting to the place where people are saying. Which is the best vaccine for me to take and now they say they actually have to message. The one that you can get is the one that you should take. So i think this is. It's all good news. Obviously i'm very interesting in people that are close to getting vaccinated ultimately. I'm now like phase one by the way guys.

"What's up wally bobby. How are you doing great another week. Another episode we love doing these shows for. Y'all hopefully. You're enjoying them are. We've got a number of new five star reviews on itunes and other platforms. If you're enjoying the show please take time to Write us a review and if we should be doing something different or better don't hesitate to reach out and let us know that as well lots of good questions and ideas for the show coming in also and someone said something about Us covering some of the top mistakes that student pilots make and lo and behold. We found an article. And we're gonna we're gonna borrow this article and talk about our thoughts on some of these things in flight magazine. Which is the texaco flight. Training magazine from the ao pa. Still the one that i get imprint. I much enjoy it. has a lot of good things in it as a relates to flight training. So if you're not a member of the go register you'll get the magazine for free either imprint of electronic but way back in january of two thousand eighteen There was an article written ten things ten mistakes. That student pilots do wrong. And we're going to talk about those while the examiner. I know you see a lot of things that go wrong. let's jump right in. We've we've done some of these topics but we'll we'll go through all ten of them. What's number ten number ten pertains to checklists and lonely appalled. We have done a An episode on the usage It is something that is required to be graded or or evaluated. Rather i should say on a check ride Pretty much on on all the landings. All all the takeoffs and everything down there in in One of the elements that i'm supposed to be looking at as proper use of checklists and You know it's pretty simple. If if you don't use a checklist you're obviously not properly using it. So i see Occasionally on on check. Rides that that applicants. Are you know especially for our landing checklist. They're just using gump's and they're going through it and they're going through their mind. But there's not a checklist anywhere close And that's that's really a bad habit pattern I and i know Maybe a cessna one seventy two especially a fuel injected one where carburetor heat is not Introduced to the the scenario. There's really not a whole lot to do As far as landing. You know as far as Checklist items But it's it's a habit pattern it something that is required and it something expected When you get a job plan a big airplane especially at an airline. Checklists are are used. They're used every time You know. I fly big airplanes and some of our checklists. Only have three items on them. And i have a memorized. But i still pull out the checklist and i look at it and i read it and i i respond to it appropriately so it is a big item. You know you're not gonna fly the same airplane all the time. You may fly. An airplane now has cal flaps. You may be flying. Fuel injected one seventy two. And you're used to that but today you're flying an end model and you've got carburetor so you got carburetor heat to be considered and that's all on the checklist Landing lights Just just everything. That's on the checklist is it's there for for a reason so you know it's something that that We we need to do better with you. And i think as a student pilot when i was training you i did get lulled into this fact that i'm flying saint planes. They don't the school when i was going here. Only had one seventy two. So i was always flying a one. Seventy two all tricycle fixed gear aircraft. You could get lulled into that. But i've flown a lot of different types of aircraft. Now and if i only thought of those items on one seventy two n p models than if i did like you said flu anything else that i could get myself in trouble or hurt pretty quick right so number. Nine on. This list is poor weather. Planning i find that to be something that I find myself chasing people down talking about on a regular basis at the flight. School people learning how to fly. They wanna go. They wanna go And they just i don't. I don't think as much as we talk about it. I still don't think students understand. The dangers of what weather can do to us. And that weather as europe pilot and you fly weather is not necessarily the same three or four miles from here. We can see here. Might not be what. What's going on three or four miles away And it's it's shocking. I think i've told the story of trying to fly to brenham to see my dad. Not that far away didn't do a weather briefing or really understand all about the weather. Pass this airport and get out there and be a wall of clouds just five or ten miles away and have to do you know quote unquote a holding pattern out there for for a thirty minute time. They would burn off but they never burned off. And i wasted a lot of gaffes in a lot of my time Trying to get somewhere. That i could have solved for that. If i would've just looked at the weather

DawgNation's Mike Griffith Makes Wild Accusations About the Potential of Georgia Football

"Going to read you a comment. That danny sheridan gave to us. I think it was about a week ago. Danny was picking the final four and he georgia to go to the final four this coming season and he said i would say the fourteen would be. George think georgia is loaded in. Georgia does not win this year. They are not going to win for a long time. And by that i mean. Get to the final four. Do you think this is the season as georgia is. Getting playoff are bus for kirby smart and his team. Yeah i've heard that the last few years in kirby keeps finding players in georgia keep finding ways to contend being a contender and actually doing. It are two different things. But what georgia's john paul. As they've stayed in the conversation or as curry says you gotta keep getting those at bats and when he finished in the top ten. Four straight years as georgia's don you recruit as well as kirby has you give yourself a chance and georgia's become known as a place that quarterbacks like to come now. The results have not always blossomed. Is much as people would like but you look at this roster now and jt daniels. Looks like one of the best quarterbacks in the country coming back. He's a former five-star they signed broadband. A grip he was a five star. Wants committed oklahoma. Now they've got gunner stockton committed a twenty twenty two five star. I mean my goodness talent is everywhere and now it's just a matter georgia finishing the job on football field. Which brings me one more comment and we don't we. Don't go out looking at other shows to bring you information. We take it from our own program. And i believe those two weeks ago booger mcfarland. We all know boogers credentials. He said this on on our show he said if you are a bulldog fan and you're going to sit there and stare honestly in the eye kirby has done less with more than maybe even mark. Rick how would you respond to that. Wow i guess. I'd say first of all you've got to get more right. You've got to have those recruiting classes in the top two or three. That's a good problem to apple and as far as doing more with less they're less with pernille they're getting ready. You can't if you can't finish the job though mike. That's i mean you're you're you're you're you're playing right in to what these guys are saying georgia out recruit anyone would maybe the exception of alabama But when are they going to finish the job. That's the question that georgia fans are asking. Yeah it's it's been tough when you win the sec. Three years in a row. And you lose to alabama in the sec championship. Game and twenty eight teeny get left out of the playoff for you. Come within one play of winning the national title twenty seventeen. I mean. i can't answer those questions for you. Know it's funny. You had ryan mcgee up there a few minutes ago talking about the late. Great dale earnhardt. He didn't win the daytona five hundred until his twentieth attempt. So those big game. Victories can be kind of a lucid. And i think that's happened for george. Remember paul kirby smart is only forty five years old. This is only year six for him. You look at how long it took guys. Like steve spurrier and nick sabin and they were six seven years into their careers before they got their national titles.

Autophagy, Fat Burning, and Muscle Building

"So this. Podcast is an audio recording of one of my most popular youtube videos. On one of my favorite topics fasted exercise. I am a fitness fanatic. I love to lift weights. I also do a little bit of running. I'm not a long distance runner. But i'll do some sprints things like that in fitness has been you know just a big part of my life really since the earliest my earliest days. I've always been Interested in fitness and performance. But when i started doing fasted exercise in my twenty that dramatically changed my life just the level of energy. The muscle building the fat burning. The just the natural high that i got from exercise went to a whole 'nother level and you guys are going to see that when we do facet exercise it drives up something called tafkaji where our body breaks down old damaged cells and re re recycles them recycles the sailor organ anals and the and the proteins in and informs new healthier cells. It's one of the single best things you can do for. Your body is intermittent fasting and combining it with exercise doing some level exercise in your fast window. And i'm gonna go through the science and show you exactly how to do it. How i recommend it in this podcast. And if you haven't left us a five star review yet. That would be a great thing to do when you leave us a review that actually helps us reach more people with this podcast impact more lives and change the world for better. And then if you haven't subscribe to our channel. Please do that way. You get notified whenever we put up a new podcast see. Never miss any of these valuable trainings. Thanks so much for leaving the review and subscribe to our channel. And let's go into the show. Hey everybody today. I'm talking about fasting. Exercise and tofte g and so when we think about exercise we know that it's great for helping stimulate metabolic flexibility which is really the ability to go between burning sugar for fuel and burning. Fats wimmer rest. We wanna use fat for fuel warmer exercising particularly at a high intensity. We don't have enough. Oxygen burn a lot of so instead. We want to be able to burn up sugar for fuel and so exercise a great stimulus for that. Fasting also helps us develop this metabolic flexibility again The ability to change our metabolism to meet the demands of our environment to go between burning sugar or fat or key tones for fuel source and then we also want to improve our energy efficiency which is really just being efficient with energy we use so we don't want a lot of wasted energy and so exercise and fasting help us be the most energy-efficient beings we can be so that way we're able to utilize energy for all the things that we need for good. Immune regulation optimal healing for brain function for production. Everything that we need without a lot of wasted energy and so when we look at our main fuel sources we know that our body runoff key tones fatty acids and glucose and so we want the ability to produce key tones used them particularly in the brain so our brain we can't get fatty acids through a blood brain barrier but we can get key tones and key. Tones are water soluble breakdown products of fatty acids and we actually pretty tremendous amount of energy with key towns and less metabolic waste. So they're very efficient. Worms of fuel glucose. The advantage of using glucose or sugar for fuel is that we can do it in anaerobic states meaning when we don't have enough oxygen exercising in a really high intensity we use glucose for fuel and it's able to produce energy very quickly however it also produces a lot of metabolic waste will experience this. When we exercise will get the burn. That's the metabolic acidosis that occurs because our bodies not able to buffer the amount of acid. That's being produced on top of that. There's a lot of Free radicals that are formed a lot of oxidative stress. The body goes under for short periods of time. When we're exercising that's a good thing. It's actually a positive stress. We call it a war medic stress that actually trains the body to produce endogenous antioxidants. Like i on more effectively. So that's a great thing to recover. We get stronger more resilient but we want once we're done exercising and we're back in kind of arresting mode we want our body to be able to staten key tones as its main fuel source and create less fuel from glucose and so another great benefit of this is autophagy in autophagy is when the body breaks down older decaying cellular organ else and so both days and fasting help stimulate

Mario Draghi Is Asked to Form Government in Italy

Mario Draghi Is Asked to Form Government in Italy

"We begin. Today in italy where mario draghi. The former chief of the european central bank has been invited by at least president cemetery to form a unity government following the collapse of the coalition talks among italy's political parties late last night in rome. The political tumult in italy was sparked by the resignation of his prime minister. Giuseppe comtesse last week and a little earlier today. A europe editor at large at stalker gave us this. Rundown of how events unfolded in rome after those coalition talks broke down yesterday evening now after that happened the president mattino della addressed tv cameras and said basically. There were two options. One would be go to early elections. That would be two years early. Because i not scheduled till twenty twenty three or he could cool together at this technocrat government. Basically an institutional government made up of known politicians. Now the reason. He said he's going to do. This is because italy is really into difficult situation. There's a health crisis and economic crisis financial crisis he. He basically listed a host of reasons. Why it would be a bad decision to call early. Elections the fact that the government wouldn't be executing its food functions during campaigning. The fact that everyone would be out on the streets trying to win votes at stockholm articles. Europe editor at large speaking to us from milan a little earlier today at kiara as described italy's president has effectively removed the politics from italy's government by instituting the so-called technocratic government. How remarkable to give a bit of a longer view on this or a move. Is this in the recent history of italian politics. and what do you foresee the political implications. I suppose of this move might be in italy in the months to come well thomas. I think it's an interesting way to put it. That president material has removed the politics from this because yes he is proposing technocrat but i think his decision is very shrewd political. Move actually You know we've talked on a monocle minute about the importance of the role of montana. And all of this you know. We focused a lot about squabbles between different parties and former prime ministers and future prime ministers. And what's going to be but actually at centro vitale is president. La la la who has made a very very intelligent move in completely. You know upending. Everybody's expectations and bringing mario draghi to the table. This is a name that a lot of parties will find difficult to say no to but that certain parties will feel almost impossible to approve and in order to understand that you have to know a little bit about the background of the last ten years of italian. Politics really is a long game. The relevance of this moment actually goes back almost a decade and it goes back to. Mario monti's government in twenty eleven ha de italian history of technocratic governments and how relation feels about them. It goes back to the fact that it's virtually the rise of the technocratic government supported by establishment. Parties sent left center right to the essentially boyd. The extreme success of movements like moving five stars the moon five stars was born out of dissatisfaction with the establishment and establishment is the pd. The establishment is better screenings party and is the technocrats the people coming from europe who are immediately resonate with this idea of steady and finance and banks. Which doesn't actually go down very well done throat of italians that were really really badly scarred by the financial crisis i think when you look at the last decade of italian politics you look at a real series of governments to have an lasted very long and remote qabli. A lot of them governments that were directly elected by the people. You know we've had technocratic governments we've had really you know we've had coalition governments where you know the majority of was really really tight whack. Coalition talks went on for ages. We've had internal betrayals and you know people come to the fore. Even though they hadn't really been selected by a popular vote. So i think what this might do for the overall mood of of the population is bring back all those feelings off just simply not really having a political choice in all of this and may actually give more fire to all of these populist parties that made their fortune out of the situation like this in the past and if we do come to early elections which has not yet. A possibility is completely off the cards. It may actually paying favor in on those populist parties which we saw in coalition government a couple of years ago three years ago. Now but that never expressed a proper. I guess prime minister political prime minister. Let's remember that the content much as we think about it now as appropriate political figure he was also a lawyer by profession. He was chosen by the moving five stars as a relatively neutral name. That would put together a coalition between moving and lega. But we haven't really had a party leader as prime minister in quite a long

Power Rankings: Can the Clippers stay atop the West?

"Espn's nba power rankings. Talking about how great everything was going in. La or how much noise l. Making right now in the sports universe but the lakers no longer number one in the rankings. So maybe la's fallen down a little. Except the clippers have assumed the number one spot kawhi leonard and company. The nba's best record the clippers. Have a six game. Swing with leonard and paul george entering quarantine due to health and safety protocols and patrick beverley. He's out they had a seven game. Winning streak snapped in atlanta. The co and paul george back after missing just two games due to contact. Tracing the clippers are a deep team. There were deep team last year. But i think bach gives them a premium over mantras harrell because he can spread the floor. He can shoot the three and he can rim defend. He can defend the paint at certainly blocked shots. At least he's very good defender. As is harold box more versatile moreover more versatile player you can play a lot of big next to a bacha because he can do some things that some modern pigs can't but serge ibaka is not the reason that they're you know this good. They've played together another season. Tyler is doing a very good job. Don't forget and this goes for what i said about the nets last segment to we're in a covert year. Still where there's not practice like. They're normally is and people are socially distanced so first year teams that come together like the nets last year like brooklyn. This year are at a disadvantage but brooklyn's now going on their second year with sorry. The clippers are largely with the same cast. And yet you know. Lou will mantras harrell reggie jackson nick tomb. Which was a big pickup nick. A tumor he got a max deal or something close to it. Because he was the status all star. I mentioned this last week but at that time. Are you sure that you knew who was going to be better between kawhi leonard klay thompson and nick platoon. But he was in that category people when he got his deal. Weren't even like oh. That's too much for nick petunia. Like oh he's really good player. Lost interest on a noncompetitive team. He looks interested again. Remember he got a max deal wasn't no one. Did him any favors. He earned it so. That's a big pickup for them. Interested nick we can play making do some things but none of this really matters to me for the clippers and i understand power. Rankings are based on regular season performance. Guys until paul. George shows up as like this if paul george showed up his normal self. The clippers are still at a disadvantage against the lakers because kawai and libron or both superstars as is a de. Paul george is the next thing to a superstar. Paul george is not a five star player. He's a four and a half star player. So even if paul george it shows up as his normal self. Ain't going to be enough for the clippers in the playoffs. He has to be just to see but instead of that or even stay the same. He gets in the playoffs. So i don't believe in this clippers team in the play. I don't care what they do. In the regular season. Until i see paul george show up when it matters in the playoffs. A believer

"Prime Minister just separate content, resigned today pushing the country into political uncertainty. NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports. The power vacuum comes as Italy grapples with the covert 19 pandemic and severe economic stagnation counted formally handed his resignation to president said drama to read law at noon today, public with some Latina Good. Sam painted, the president's chief of staff, said moderator will begin consultations tomorrow with all political leaders to try to form a new government contest. Government.

Why Nursing Homes' COVID-19 Legal Shields May Interfere With Other Cases

"You listen to podcasts. In twenty seven states nursing homes have gotten special legal protections during the covid nineteen pandemic that means in most cases families can't sue if someone they love got sick or died at one the nursing home say they're doing the best they can and they need those legal shields but that also may stop people whose injuries have nothing to do with covid from seeking justice in the courts. Noel talked with. Npr's jaffe been looking into this. Why were these laws passed in the first place. You remember that. The corona virus outbreak started as far as most people were aware in a nursing home and currently long term care facilities account for more than a third of all deaths from covid nineteen nursing homes were caught scrambling for personal protective equipment. They were shifting recommendations of how contagious disease was and the industry made a case that they shouldn't be held responsible for dealing with this moving target. Are there any lawsuits pending against nursing homes relating to covid or did these immunity laws. Basically finish them off. While there is one in durham north carolina. It's questioned whether it's related to covid. Possibly it's the first of its kind involves the death of a woman named palestine house. Her daughter lisa set her. Mother's death had nothing to do with corona virus. Her mother had a pressure ulcer or bedsores there commonly known she'd had it since december of twenty eighteen and it just got worse. It became infected. Lisa how said she begged traber and rehabilitation center. Send her mother to the emergency room but they assured us that they could handle it. Lisa house and her three sisters had their doubts and their experience traber and rehabilitation center. Didn't seem to be able to handle much on a scale of one to five stars. The federal government gives traber and just one it also gets below average ratings on the ratio of nurses to residence. The government has find traber. Almost one hundred ninety thousand dollars in the past three years. We were there a lot and we found ourselves having to bathe her just general things they were supposed to do. We'd come in several times when she hadn't been fed her just sitting there. The house sisters hadn't had a lot of luck with nursing homes. In general trae burn was the third one they tried. It was close to where they live so the sisters could visit often but it hardly mattered. One families were locked out of nursing homes in march. Everything got harder and took longer. Palestine house needed specialists in wound care and iv antibiotics. Lisa house had her mother's power of attorney again. She begged trae burn rehabilitation to send her mother to the emergency room where they could find the specialists. She needed again. She was turned down their excuses. Were well the hospitals not taking new patients because of covert and she would be safer she stayed here and the facility is equipped to take care of your mother and none of those things turned out to be true. Palestine house died a train rehabilitation center on april fourteenth. Twenty twenty one month later. North carolina passed a sweeping liability shield for long term care facilities. The nursing homes with rare exceptions were immune from lawsuits. The measure was made retroactive to march tenth. Lisa house and her sisters decided to suit rayburn. Anyway elizabeth todd is their attorney. Palestine house did not have to die in that way or at that time and for the legislature to say that the nursing homes need protection in the middle of a pandemic not the nursing. Home patients is outrageous and it's unjust north carolina's immunity law lasts until the pandemic is over. Todd is especially worried that the law gives the free past nursing homes with low staffing trayvon and so literally the nursing homes can take their own understaffing their chronic understaffing and use it as a shield to prevent any liability at all during the covid pandemic through their attorneys train. Rehabilitation center declined comment but for many in the long term care industry. These immunity measures are welcome. Relief says dave voelpel. Ceo of the zona healthcare association. Arizona governor doug ducey was among the first to sign an executive order granting nursing homes and assisted living facilities legal immunity and for that we apart him. Because that just takes a little bit of pressure off. Though paul says it allows facilities to focus on what's most important we need to worry about. Keeping covert out of the building that sometimes that cuts into the bottom line says bubble take for instance one hundred bed building and they really have fifty rooms two beds per room that to keep infection from spreading those double rooms may have to be converted to private rooms. So revenue is cut in half. It really takes its toll on the business side of the ledger. Long term care facilities face a crisis if existential proportions says mark reagan the attorney for the california association of health facilities that's because liability insurance are excluding things covert when they renew policies which would mean that any claims made regarding covert infection would be subject to exclusion and no insurance coverage congressional. Republicans wanted a national immunity law but dropped as part of the deal for the latest coronavirus. Relief package reagan. Still has hopes what we're merely asking for is stats caregivers. And their employers. Don't get punished for doing the best that they could. Under the circumstances. I imagine that the family of palestine house doesn't in fact the nursing home was doing the best it could for their mother. Well right there attorney. Elizabeth todd points out that one of north carolina's immunity criteria is that facility must be acting in good faith and she doesn't see how can argue that they did that. So where does

The Ultimate Guide to Downsizing in Toronto

"Good evening. Paul here real estate podcast. Show dot com. This is a very very special report. That i wanted to make sure was right out there for all of you to listen to because it has been by far the most requested information that i could provide over the last few weeks. So i've got a feeling there's a lot of you out there who need to know how to make the safest in smartest downsizing decisions in twenty twenty one. The people that i'm meeting over the last two weeks range. Everywhere from homes in the danforth area to the beach to forest hill to rosedale a lot of you in rosedale are listening to My show and i really wanna make sure you're paying attention so rosedale. People bridle path people. A lot of you are sitting on some incredible properties that you no longer need and you understand that with the most amount of three million dollar plus sales in the history of toronto last year. There's an audience for your types of properties that you bought for one or two million dollars so now You're looking to some of your looking to down size and not necessarily in quality. You just wanna have your mansion squeezed into a three bedroom Five-star condo which i happen to have for sale at this time. So i know a lot of you are being gravitated towards these type of places. And i am going to need so many more so those of you with luxury. Condos and luxury lofts Do not pass go. Do not do anything until you reach out to me at real estate. Podcast show dot com. Because i've got these downsizing buyers who are in this position where they are going to be coming out with a lot of cash because a lot of these people do not have mortgages and they're going to be in a position to buy property and if you've never had a if you've ever sold a property ever dealt with a cash buyer and i'm talking about a cash buyer in a very strong position It's a whole different ballgame so rather than let's say you're selling your one point two million dollar condo and you're crossing your fingers closing day and i and i say that way because you know that the person probably may qualify for a million and they've got to find two hundred thousand. It's far better. I've got a different technique. That i use so it's far better to have the person with the one point. Five to two million affordability looking at your one point. Two million dollar condo loft if your place looks good enough. It will appeal to the people on the upper scale of that qualification versus the people on the other side of the qualification is just part of how it works. It doesn't mean that there isn't properties for everybody in every price rich. But i really wanna make sure that you are selling smart Most importantly safely. And i've actually said this to many people than i kind of get this look from people when they say this is safety is greater than location right now. So safety in your move to me is more important than location because for me and if you disagree. that's fine. Were allowed to do that but for me. Health is always going to come before wealth without a healthy mind. Body spirit soul. You can't enjoy the wealth. Whatever it is that you have in anybody that's listening. I don't care whether you have one hundred dollars in the bank or a million dollars in the bank. If you're not living the best life you can and and giving back and helping other people out and not hurting other people not not talking anybody down. Not treating the gardner differently than you would your spouse like any of that kind of people. I instantly repel i. I don't get along with any of you. That are like that. But those of you who are treating others kindly taking care of others donating food banks helping out small businesses. You were on the same page. I already know so. Thank

"I think in terms of the fundamentals the the main thing which i took away from the whole debica l was the when it looked like it might need to be new elections it wasn't so much the people will worry that that would be new elections because elections happened if five minutes in italy the problem was that people will worried in the wake of this nomination of eurosceptic finance minister which apparently was a deal breaker f at seven minutes in italy the the five star movement and the league would run in these hypothetical future elections on an explicitly anti euro platform it was basically like brexit contagion fear what of the euro it's all falling apart like if italy if italy leaves the euro that is genuinely catastrophic full italy info the world but interestingly it all seems to have resolved itself with literally with the league whitewashing the anti euro symbol off their headquarters and did league sort of doing this wonderful awhile ian we have never been against the euro and we are totally pro euro and if i saw movement is like yeah we we hate old of the technocrats but we'd love the euro so effectively the big worry which was a eurosceptic possible what do we call it it to leave it's most thing it elects it but it lexington five which is good yeah yeah yeah it's actually kind of i mean as your following the ups and downs all week it's i it's this like utter panic like italy's the next one to go they've got these populists in charge and they wanna leave the euro and it's the next brexit in oh my god europe's going to explode in everyone's freaking out this is my like high school version of what just happened and then by mid week they're like and then it's you know the president's have known we're not going to do that and then there's more panic in them blah blah blah blah blah all evens out and now at the end of the week it's like no china.
