"Instead of being paid to glorify the church and nobility like so much of Europe, the art in the low countries was paid for by the wealth of the Protestant merchant class are guides are Nico Febrile who lives near Bruges in West Flanders and Jodi angles door than she lives in Harlem North Holland? Nicole Yoda. Thanks for being here. Thank you. Thank you for having us. So from your perspective as a guide in the Netherlands ca you see that divide in the art world? Well, of course, it's a lot about the culture of country and like you said, our culture is all about brought stations and we had thorough formation and that are really created a big difference between some art in other countries in us. So we have very basic churches. They're all stripped down from older statues but also are monster pieces re rarely. See. Any Christian. Seems but we always have the Merchan's and because we had a Dutch republic very soon after. Yeah. So that is of you. If you see a bread of his biblical theme, it'll be from the Bible but it won't be from some Pope or something like that. Yes. If you think about you, you mentioned the reformation you have a huge church on the main square in Harlem that was a Catholic Church and it was completely painted all the pillars were painted and everything now when you go in yeah. Washed away whitewashed. Yes. Whitewashed. Yeah So a reformation came we had iconoclast where all the distance took it down and the art was little gone, and how do you recognize what the Protestants really brought into the churches was music and that is how they really lived up churches. So in Harlem, you have this giant organ. which more than five thousand pipes you can still go in and listen to it every Thursday In the summer periods. Then you have a concert for free you can visit and you can hear his Oregon play you can just. How old's organised, we've come so a ten year old Mozart played in this. So it's a it's a very different experience and it's very beautiful. So maybe four or five hundred years ago it was Catholic and then you have the reformation it becomes Protestant partisans come in there and they were kind of sort of kind of mean her. Very extreme. Throughout. All the statues they busted lot of the windows they painted everything white and they put up this amazing organ that goes it's his tallest building. It goes way to the top of those arches. Wild, it is wild and that's something that when you know the story behind, it makes a little more sense when you have a good information, know every Thursday there's a free concert Nico when you think about the Great Dutch painters who comes to mind. Of course, he think about people like don't finance house to meet. My personal is Yon Stein. Johnston because he has these scenes of just people having fun at home and it's sometimes a bit double if what he wants to say with paintings. inning. Is it the warning that you shouldn't be so? Joyful maybe in life. Or they're just fun to watch because there is there's a lot of folk way stem. Yeah. It's like I'm like don't be wasteful or if you gossip things bad things will happen or there's all these little little lessons about life but not really preaching from the Church nobody you could interpret it that way and people could hang it in their houses and say, this is what we shouldn't be doing. Right but I look at them as okay. They're having fun to me. It's a little intimate look at life for hundred years ago or whenever he owns Dean was painting, but that's a good name to. Note Yawn Seen S. T. E. N. S. these when I go to a gallery in the Netherlands I, see a lot of small paintings by a lot of people whose names I don't know rather than a few big paintings by people who are superstars and highly paid, and you got to think it's a different sort of clientele. If you're painting a King or some bishop, you can paint something big and really expensive. But in the Netherlands when they got rid of the king and they got rid of the pope, they got to have the open market business people for their clientele and it needs to be affordable. So you have small appreciate art. Or. Not Actually N- definitely. But like you said it would be anonymous or from the same workshop or around that's what you would read. You see the values of the day there I, mean, above the dining room table, you might have a still life. Yes. Still lifes is not a personal favourite, but that's something that you will find a lot. Would you see in still life because of fruits, baskets, fish 'cause it's the Netherlands. So they would have a love of fish in there as well. Easy to catch
The History Of Martin Micronius
"On this episode, five minutes in Church history. We are returning to the reformation and talking about a reformer that you might have never heard of before Martin Micronesia's he was born in fifteen, twenty, three engagement and Flanders when I hear the word gant or the place can't always think of the altarpiece that beautiful painting. So Martin Mike Kronius is Dutch. It appears that he was a medical doctor and studied medicine, and there's even testimony that he published medical works. But then he got intrigued by the reformation and became a reformer he studied at Basel at Strasbourg, and then in fifteen forty nine, he went to London there in London he became associated with John Alaska this was the Polish reformer who also ended up in London And he and Martin my Kronius and a few others were intent on establishing a little Geneva in London. This would be a place for a European reformers to be in. London, they were not Lutherans. Anglicans they were reformed and they were trying to carve out a place for themselves. Well, he lasco published a few works to help for the liturgy and in the work by Martin. Is was published in London in fifteen, fifty four. He says this on the Ministry of the word. No church gathering is ever held among us in which the church is not taught to some extent from God's word in order for it to be edified, admonished and comforted, and for very good reasons, the scriptures are not expounded in sermons on is located parentheses as in the practice among the papists. Instead we take some book of the Bible either from the old or the New Testament, and we expound it from the beginning to the end in all sermons. We successfully read from this book as much as can be edifying, -Ly and properly expounded and explained within one hour. If necessary the ministers of the word are also admonished not to go too much beyond the scope of their text in their preaching rather they should as much as possible take all their teaching admonishment exhortation rebuke in comfort from the present text. So there you have it, you stick with the text, but you also see that this sermon was an hour long. So these Dutch as we know are tough the service that he also was trying to get established. There at this church in London, we not only have the sermon. In fact, it would start off with a prayer prayer for elimination. Then there'd be the Lord's prayer. Then they'd read a psalm. Then they'd read a scripture that the sermon was from and then you'd have the sermon the hour long sermon. Then they would pray for strength and by that, they mean to live out the meaning of that sermon and to live out the application of that sermon. then. They would read the Decalogue, the Ten Commandments. Yes. Every Sunday reading through the Ten Commandments. Then there would be a brief admonishment related to the Ten Commandments. Then there would be a confession of sin than there would be a prayer of forgiveness and then there would be a warning to the impertinent those that were not willing to confess their sins. Then, they'd recite the apostles creed than there would be prayers for intercession of the congregation than the Lord's prayer. Then another psalm, then a- benediction and that was the service that Martin my Kronius was trying to establish there in. London. Well, all of these efforts came to a halt when Edward the six died and he was replaced by his half sister. Mary. And you know this is the time of Marian exiles and One of those exiles was Martin my Kronius he ended up in Norton in Germany, which is on the North Sea. while. He was there. He held some debates with Meno Simon's yes of the Mennonites and he also published his catechism in fifteen, fifty five in Dutch and it was there in Norton that he died fifteen, fifty nine well, that is Martin, my Kronius, the Dutch reformer in London.

How I Used the Principles of Minimalism to Make $8,000 by Emma Scheib
"How I use the principles of minimalism to make eight thousand dollars by Scheib of simple slow lovely dot com. If you told me a few years ago that minimalism or simple living would lead to generating money. I would have laughed away of living helping generate income sounds too good to be true. and. Right now, you're probably wondering how I'm going to spin this and if it's actually as good as it sounds right. Well from one skeptic to another I, invite you to open your mind to new possibilities. Let go of preconceived ideas about how making money should look which for most people looks like being employed and let your imagination lead you because I believe that when you let go of clutter both physical and emotional and embrace freedom, there were many opportunities for your finances to benefit. So here we go. Let's break it down. Making money was a byproduct. I never set out to use the concepts of minimalism to make money. My pathway to simple living was forged through many years of living in the land of busy and overwhelmed. I chose to slow down and simplify, and one of the consequences was an opportunity to make money. It didn't happen overnight. I spent a couple of years emptying my home of the things that I didn't need anymore drawer by drawer box box. That's the only way I got there. There were many times that I wished the process would go faster, but it just didn't work that way and going slower allowed me to apply and environmental mindfulness to the process. As ID cluttered and simplified I gained freedom. When I got to a certain level of empty a few shelves here and there a barebones closets I began to dream of things I'd previously deemed impossible. For instance, a family sabbatical overseas seemed a little bit more doable less to pack less to store less work to prepare for. Okay. Okay. Enough Preamble I'll cut to the chase for you now. Making the money. So. How exactly did we make eight thousand dollars as a byproduct of choosing to live more minimally. We were able to rent our beautiful home over the summer. We live in a beautiful part of New Zealand with the best, beach in the world only seven minutes drive from our home. It's a sought after location for New Zealanders and many foreign tourists to we'd heard of other people renting their houses out as holiday homes and knew that it could be a profitable venture but laden down with four too many possessions. I never seriously considered this as an option for. Making money the preparation to get the house ready would have been absolutely enormous and completely unattainable when I left my fulltime job to set about restoring sanity and balance to our house. We knew that renting our house out would be a great option to help replace a bit of my income, and by the time we decided to go ahead and advertise I had a couple of years of decluttering under my belt. There was still work to be done, but it wasn't overwhelming and having an external goal to hold me accountable helped to push through some of the harder decisions about what state or got donated I'll be honest with you though we do not look like minimalists are home does not have that scandi minimalist look. We still have stuff. We still have excess stuff. In fact, I'm often embarrassed if anyone sees her garage, but it's one hundred percent better than it was three years ago. So. Now, let's talk about how minimalism might help you make some money. How could minimalism help you create extra income? Sell items. I sold a few things but donated most I was already pretty time poor. So I decided on the more efficient way to purge items. But if you have some extra time, consider at least selling your bigger ticket items but also you might hold a garage sale or list your things on a local facebook garage sale page the excess items you no longer want could translate into hundreds of dollars if you want them to. Buy less. Put yourself on spending ban and save the money you might have spent. You might be surprised how much you spend each month on non subsidies? Yes. I'm talking takeaway coffee makeup homewares, etc. Check out the year of less by Kate Flanders for more inspiration. Do what we did. I highly recommend considering renting out your home for a period. It won't be for everyone, but you may not know until you try. But also if you aren't quite there yet you could consider using the extra time you have by not having as much to clean organize and maintain to earn a little extra money on the side. Perhaps you have a creative pursuit that you might be able to earn some money from free up your time, and this could become a profitable reality. I get that many people do this they rent their whole house or part of it without identifying as minimalist or a slow living advocate. But I'm giving this way of living full credit for being able to take this opportunity. I'm so thankful that I'm on this journey to simplify and slow down it's not always easy but there are always hidden gems along the way.

Like everybody's like what what just happened and so what what is even off doing here. He's got three guys up in the front group. I'm pulling looking at me back in the back on. What the fuck this guy was. Always such a goofy like he was like an enigma. Like you couldn't talk to him. It was like a Cyborg. Let just before you yeah. Who was a great classics writer? Probably probably the best Spanish classics writer of certainly of our generation as this is not a stock of the move the meter and a this is just just before this in what happened there when lance is pulling together we got him to twenty two seconds after the attack is basically Just went after him and stopped. We have one minute now. That's about five gay later. We lost forty five seconds. Perhaps that attack was actually a good move because it messed up your rhythm in. Its out there. Everybody from actually thinking we had a chance to get back. Well in hindsight did some of his invention for sure I know he was. He was selfishly trying to get across that that I remember that cat. That's the way he he was in here again. We're we're watching the same climb that we watched from ten years ago. Twenty years ago ninety five eighty five. This is it right now. We're back on the cobbles. Look at the speed difference here and we're GONNA see a very similar move from Tom Boonen And and you know just a display of power. Where it's you watch any any by the way is not pulling away from Pentacook and I mean then pick him on who's going to try to attack and Williams GonNa response by the basically doing the same thing as we say. He's looking for the gear. Now he's GonNa Accelerate deportability goes and born system. Go and follow him. Yup in the saddle. Incredible it's twenty twenty Twenty four years old before Tom. Boonen won twenty four races already right. You remember what pro team and what set of directors discover. Tom Boonen and brought him gave him his first pro contract. Do you remember that I don't well it was it was it was Johan Bruyneel. Dirk them all postal. That brought him into the sport. So look at this over the top and check in just as such a matter of the magical just spiritual experience coming over with. There's George much with Fletch Louis. C. You you know you're you're you're strong legs because look you you make it to the nine front of you. Who said if you'RE GONNA be I I of this Of this group over. But you know it's not to late Considering where I was ten days before that I was quite happy with the way I was feeling toward the end of the race. There are now we have. What what what does has become what is going to become. This is the raise right so you so you get over the guards. Bergen you have the boss Burke and this is the winter's coming from this group again this this Paved straight run in a straight to the boss bird which transitions to Kabul's Again probably a three star section rough but not not that rough certainly Possible to power over but this group stays together they stay together over the boss Burg and then. It's fun to watch this finale here. Yeah the little cat and mouse but watch after the boss Berg. Just watch the games that are played the attack the counter attacks and then ultimately you know this sort of look at Boehner now Bolan is gonNA show already here. That needs is even bose's strength. You know Zaba having a rough time but keep those getting up to almost Trying to draw everybody. Women's dinner take over and say Hey. I'm the bolts you'll see yep and and what I was GONNA say in you'll see in a sector X. factor in this game is just the which is what it is. I mean the the cars the Motos just pay attention and just keep an eye out the road and watch what happens here in about three minutes. Tom Boonen just says this is this guy's on another level and there's no you know and and in you know I've never been twenty four years old having grown up in Flanders had my opportunity to win my first tour Flanders is. This would be like being a kid who grew up on the mean streets of Boston. Being able to play at Fenway and win the world series in front of a bunch of local fans. I mean this is that big. So imagine doesn't even in Utah but we used to joke in no chain. Tom Boonen has no chain at the moment. That is interesting though that they they they got over that. Bosberg and still were able to regroup immediately on the wheel. Look Look at look at his response. Time you don't you think he's a little hungry here. It is over. The bike races over here comes the motos and slow down just a little more motos and look behind. No motos now. They're trying to capture that image. We know and that's the way the game is played. But if you're not up there and they're not taking pictures of the.

All right let's get to it so as I mentioned a second Gluteus so I've got my longtime teammate. A Guy who knows this race obviously much better than I do. I love a love the tour of Flanders to me. I think it's it's the most beautiful spring classic. Because when when people think of the classics the kickoff with milan-san Remo we get into flanders the Kabul hills of the flannery region of Belgium. Everyday and then you have so to me. Flanders is a combination of Bay. And so to me it really makes makes it the most really the most beautiful spring classic. George like I said knows a lot better than me so we get Georgina. Copy all the way over in Madrid. We got the greatest director sportifs to ever walk the face of the Earth Johan Bruyneel j. One and then also right here in Austin we've got You Know Jay. This J. J. B. H. You'd never did any string. Classics are never want any big bike races. But he's pretty damn good at what he does got.

You'll eat people inside for months and months and said don't go outside don't interact and socialize. Don't do the things they're used to doing don't it's it's messy and so Hang in there everybody and and hopefully this little This little hybrid version of the move is something to to bring some joy and fun. We're GONNA find with it on your Sunday. Which would normally would have been other tour flanders which is opposite not happening so George you got any thoughts. Give me some just high level thoughts on on the tour Flanders. You know from your perspective as a guy who Was Always I think you always toed the line and you know maybe not expected to win but certainly wanted to to win or or content upset many times in the past in my opinion torque landers is the hardest one day race in the world is just the intensity is is unlike any other race on the calendar. Rebbe is comparable but just the relentless road the road services the the chain rhythms the change in size of the road. The wind the rain Is just never ending. Says One of those races where he just you go through different phases of hurt and pain toward the end of the race. Nobody's really feel not good. It's just who's got one or two matches left that can really push through that pain But those climbs at the end the other Numidian. Unique things you. You're in a radius of about thirty kilometers for the last hundred thirty cameras at the on the road really. This intensity is is like no other race. Dr. But when you have a country the size of of lower Manhattan it's Kinda gotta do that. You gotTa make a bunch of turns and come back on yourself. A bunch but John Question for you and we'll we'll dive in after this. I mean this was not a race that suited you as when you raise professionally but you grew up. I mean this was your backyard so Win Was the first time you stood on the side of the road and watched an edition of tour of Flanders. What year well do flowers used to pass through my village so as long as I can remember? I've I've seen the two longer but you know it was in the early early stages of the race. Oh usually a breakaway. In the end the whole thon came true. And I have a memory of I think it was one of the last years of Eddie Marks. I know he was racing for Fiat So must have I think. Seventy seven seventy eight. Probably that I went with my father. Do go and watch the racism on the climbs and it was the famous the famous edition. That was Freddie Martins and Raja vlaminck in Eddie marks and at the end it was on the law and Freddie Martens Martens was pulling all the time I think he was world champion and He was he already knew. He was going to be disqualified so he because he had changed the bike from the carbon from a from a spectacle from one of his staff members and it wasn't allowed so it was It was a very controversial race because it was Martin spooling and allowing just bossing him on the finish line Seventy eight probably. I remembered at Eddie. Murphy's racing for Fiat so he was no of course he was caught instill but the he was my minke. My big hero and I have a great memory memories of that. They think what's Interesting for the American audience and I've mentioned the stuff to Johann before when we've done the additional shows he's like why haven't you seen this? Why don't you know these names growing up? We didn't get to see these. You know we didn't receive spring classics in America so revisiting these few racists today. Today's going to be great Because we just didn't see them. In fact an even. In the LEMONDE era of Tour de France we would get an hour on Sunday of a recap of an entire week so Going back and revisiting these in in learning more about the history and heritage of racist like Flanders is great for for this audience. Yeah and I it is. Is You all on again? This is this is there Viewed as opposed to Listen to So if you can get it on Youtube or facebook It'll be a different better and different experience. But we're talking one thousand nine hundred nineteen ninety five and two thousand five winners and Eric Vander Arden. Johan and Tumbler Belgians But to me I as I watched the three over and over and over the difference in in. Y'All watch for this right. The difference between eighty five and ninety five was shoot like I was like holy. Should that feels like thirty years. The Difference Between Ninety seven. Oh five is the the Delta there the difference is is is it's completely it's not the same at all and so when you when we in. It'll be fun to watch. Eighty-five just watched the gearing. Watch the equipment Watch the apparel. Certainly the weather was a factor there but I mean I say we jump in. We'll we'll we'll start here. We're GONNA start the nine hundred eighty five tour of Flanders with seventy kilometers to go and Johann pointed out in our production eating Back then you know now. The tour Flanders and Belgium or wherever is on pretty much start to finish in those days it always the footage all are the coverage always started with the cop and the COP and Berg is a really iconic. Climb very narrow heavily cobbled Very steep for true true cycling fans. If you WANNA go back there was a classical image of Jesper skippy. A Danish ride their nineteen eighty-seven who was climbing up on the site and trying to hug the side. A car was trying to get around him. squeezed through and actually ran over. And and it's a classic photo you guys can look it up. Jesper skippy J. E. S. P. E. R. S. K. I. B. B. Y. Nineteen eighty-seven on the COP Berg. But last you mentioned the And as we're GONNA go watch all three. Three races or highlights of the races is probably getting to mention now how the Delta was huge. The difference between eighty five ninety five was massive and not as much of a difference between ninety five thousand five. But what was mind boggling to me as a points guys that production meet was the average speeds? Were basically the same thirty nine point. Six in eighty five thirty nine point five ninety five in forty four point two in two thousand five. I mean think about that. The the differences in equipment. That's in the distances. Were all the same. I believe breath Johan. Yeah more or less two to sixty. That's mind boggling. What in your nose will probably have a better insight on this. But what is that? Is that where they rate? Johan where they racine harder attacking earlier starting earlier with the race. Had to be because there's no way with haven conditions in the mid eighties Equipment the flat rams three cross spoked wheels like the. There's no way I mean they had to be you know when the gun went off the head to go full gas. I mean as I said you know back back then. It was always a breakaway as usual. And then the Pendleton taking it. Easy at the beginning. So it's actually a really really impressed especially if you if you consider the letter. Conditions of Ninety five addition. I that's crazy. I mean that I mean. The the bikes were they. Were all steel. The gears you know they I spoke with the winner. Eric Bundoran and he was he was using forty. Two Twenty. Three as as the smallest. Because that's basically what there was. There was nothing else. And you'll see it was we'll see him on the Couple of Merck. How how hard so. Yeah I mean. It's that's impressive. I don't know the reason you could say okay. Ninety five and two thousand five the same speed kind of makes sense but if if you and again when we watched it this so we'll get through the COP and Berg. We ultimately get to the mirror to the whatever. Gerhard's Bergen there is falling over. If just watch this it. It's it's and we'll get to it. We get to the end. There's guys are falling off their bikes. If that happened today in a bike race we would. We would think we were watching a cartoon initiate. They are falling. They cannot pedal they cannot go anywhere tip over done. I mean it's we'll get to it. So let's let's start going to start with seventy eight ago nineteen eighty-five tour Flanders. The starts right at the COP and bursary immediately going to see Just see what what these what.
Low Country Showdown: Belgium vs. The Netherlands
"Days in Europe you hardly know when you've crossed the border but when you get to know each region it's clear. Cultural differences are as distinct and strong. As ever. You're it's fascinating that even as your continues to unite. The differences between the various regions remained so strong the historic nucleus of the European Union. Nyon was a trio of little countries known as Benelux Belgium the Netherlands and Luxembourg and it's very small area. It's fascinating in its complexity lexi. We're joined in the studio by a guide from Belgium and another from the Netherlands to explore the cultural differences between their two countries. Allen Yanji is guide in the Netherlands and Hilbert buys is from Brussels where he teaches at the European School of Communication. He teaches history and politics. And he works as a tour guide. Hilburn Hilburn and Ellen. Thanks for joining us now. Ellen you live in the Netherlands and you work as a guide in Amsterdam. What's your family's history are are you like? Have you been the Dutch forever or what yes. I've been Dutch forever but my grandfather was a German so they came over from Germany to the Netherlands and they settled in brabant. John's which is the south of the Netherlands. And it's a province that was divided when the two nations of the Netherlands and Belgium were created. Rob You have. Yes so so. You have north brabant. which is part of the Netherlands and you have south but album which is in Belgium and so you ended up in the Netherlands? Yes yes that. A blessing or a curse Both we'll talk more about that in just a minute. And he'll bring you Belgium your home. And how did you end up there because you sound like you have an American accent to me well yes. My parents are of Dutch extraction in fact but with NATO We ended up in in bracelets right. Grew up and have have managed to stay so you are European. If you're living in Belgium the Edison near you the cut up there and all the EU excitement. Now when you think about the low countries country's once it was all the same wasn't it The low countries the Spanish Netherlands. The Spanish Netherlands were separate from the Dutch republic but before the Spanish Netherlands became Spanish. Yeah we were all part of the Holy Roman Empire and then what happened because to me. It's kind of a cultural divide between Belgium and Holland today. You've got french-speaking speaking while loons and you've got Germanic speaking Dutch you've got Catholics and Protestants. You've got south facing German facing. Is that a cultural. Divide of some sort ellen. It is the language barrier has been there for a thousand years. It's not a part of Belgium. Belgium created as a nation in eighteen. Thirty it was was not that then. The language barrier started to exist is was already there long before tectonic plates coming together right here from Roman Roman speaking tribes heading east and Germanic speaking tribes heading west and so they joined up so you had these language barrier from Roman speaking and Germanic Manic speaking which is more or less where today's language barrier is in Belgium. So we're kind of talking about between the Netherlands and Belgium but also within Belgium. We've got this split with the north being more culturally and linguistically tied with the Netherlands in the south being more connected with France yes because of the language and of course because his French has always been the dominant language throughout the Middle Ages. When you had people who wanted to be anything in life had to be able to speak French and later on it it stayed the dominant language in the industrial era and Flemish was the local dialect so If the man comes into fix your door he's going to speak Flemish but if the the guy who runs the city the unknowns the bank. He's going to speak French. Yeah he'll burn if you WANNA have historically in the in Belgium has set the case if you want your kid to be made to meet a very important person. They should speak French. That isn't true today. No nineteenth century historically Boulogne. Yes polk were loon. The elite of the nation spoke French French because they were of nobility French has have replaced Latin as the dominant language in much of Europe travel. With Rick Steves. We're talking about the cultural differences between the people in Belgium Belgium and the people in the Netherlands. We're joined by Ellen. Yeah I'm saying from the Netherlands and Hilburn buys from Belgium when we think about we've been talking about or the origins of these countries. But we have this situation today where we've got a the Netherlands which is Dutch. Speaking in the northern half of Belgium which is Flanders Flanders. Right Phlegm is that is that the same language. The language is formerly the same in Belgium. When you go to school you go to a class called Dach- the way that in America when you go to school you don't learn American when no one you go to English when no one was called Nederlands? It's called Nigel why don't they just call it Flemish. Just because it's the vendors we share the lexicon. We share the dictionary if you read the dictionary which is produced for the Netherlands and Belgium collectively the only thing. You'll see his annotations in. The definition conditions will see used regionally or applied in Belgium this way and in the Netherlands Hall that way so what are the Flemish speaking people. The Netherlandish speaking people of Belgium. I'm well how do they relate to the to the Dutch. What is the cliches? What are the jokes saw? Well at the well at the Belgian. Talk here for a minute I okay. I'll preface this by saying I studied in the Netherlands Dutch origin. I really don't have to side with any of this. I have a nice anecdote with two friends who met one was Belgian. Elgin and one of them was touched in the Belgian tells the Dutch when he says do you know upon northern border. That's the end of culture to which the Dutchman responded yes that's true but on our our southern border that's the end of intelligence who we go and Ellen. What about you from the Netherlands How did the Dutch the think of the Belgians? Then what's a joke or a little insight into the cultural differences. Well there are many things that we like. And let's say on the plus side. We love the Belgian sense of Huma among which is kind of surreal. Sometimes we don't even understand it. They definitely have a different sense of humor than the Dutch have. And we sort of admire that because it's subjects are very frank and very straightforward very matter of fact. Yes I've got a Dutchman say I've been with him and he says you know it's it's exhausting I to carry on a conversation. Let's just not talk with each other and not be stressed out about it right so the to me. That was so Dutch a Belgian might be a little more no Belgians and more they like to keep themselves to themselves on more modest and you can experience this when you travel there for instance. You're in American and you're in Belgium and you want to ask something I think it's always polite to us. Do Speak English. When you're in Flanders they will say oh I don't know yes maybe a little bit and then you start a conversation and and you find out that the perfectly perfect well with England when you go to the Netherlands and you ask their Excuse me do you speak English. They so yeah. Of course. That's right so there. You have the difference. Like Belgians are more. Yeah more modest landed dot Chamo- assertive assertive described as self effacing using the Belgians are okay. That's that it's very. It's very nice. Also that in Belgium rules are a little bit less importance. Well it's it's more dramatic in the north breath.

My morning walks enjoy the food. I put into my body celebrate a win at work or on the blog man soak up every minute.

So keep your wits about you. Thanks for coming on the show. Well, good to have, you know, as I was thinking, I have a friend of mine who works in this building that I work in who took advantage of short term limited duration plans back when they were a year, and you could extend my believe one extra year, and and then found that he had to renew his plans every ninety days. So every time he had renewal plan. He'd have to move onto the next plan. Here's the problem. There weren't an unlimited supply of plans for him to continue. You to move to. There was no way he could afford ObamaCare coverage in the individual marketplace. He did not qualify for employer based care here because he was a part timer and he did not qualify for subsidies to purchase an ObamaCare policy, nor did he make too little to qualify for Medicaid. The short term limited duration plan has a market and a real human market, but Tony doesn't seem to much care about that. What would he matter? What matters more to him. It seems is is trying to protect the narrative of ObamaCare. Not to to protect people, but to protect the political narrative of ObamaCare. We'll be right back truck drivers.

Explainer 140: Floral tributes
"In Flanders fields the poppies blow between the crosses bro on row. Those are the first lines of a poem written by Lifton Colonel John McCrea, a Canadian medic who served with the first brigade of the Canadian field artillery on the western front in the first World War, and who died of pneumonia in France, not long after hostilities ceased after the second battle of IPE in April, and may of nineteen fifteen McRae noticed that the first life to push through the devastated landscape and muddy improvised, cemeteries were scarlet poppies. The flower has since become across the Commonwealth a symbol of remembrance in modern Britain. However, the poppy has become a symbol of something else. A designation of which side you are on in one of the twenty first centuries, deeply tedious culture wars until really quite recently. The Royal British legions annual poppy appeal worked like this sometime in early November you approach to current or former soldier in a train station dropped some change into their bucket. Perhaps parted with a few awkward were. Words in appreciation of this and walked away with a red paper flower into your coat, which you wore until remembrance day, November eleventh or more usually until it fell off sometime beforehand. Money was raised for a fine. 'cause and a gesture of gratitude and solidarity was made it was a humble and dignified ritual. It is now a circus outside novelty poppies appear on the fronts of taxis and tube trains, and with increasing frequency in the lapels of politicians apparently feared that sporting anything list. Ostentatious would be sacrilege the mesmerizing Twitter account of giant puppy watch has this year spotted such monstrosities as poppy face paint, poppy themed pizzas and a poppy. Replacing the kickoff spot on at least one football ground. This has been made worse as has absolutely everything by the toxic combination of tabloid and social media Hughes and cries are raised should some of the public figure fail to sport a poppy last year temple veins, throbbed purple when England cricketer Moeen Ali, not insignificantly to the nine ruckus that ensued. Embiid Muslim will spotted poppy free in eighteen photo by the time Ali explained that his poppy had fallen off. And he just hadn't noticed the horse of confected outrage had long since skate the stable door of truth. It is possibly if I a cly instructive that some of the most interesting reflections on the puppy have come from the few footballers who prefer not to wear. What is now default addition to their kit at this increasingly tiresome time of year stoke city's James McLean is uncomfortable with the poppy ju to his upbringing in Derry Northern Ireland with the British army is not regarded with unequivocal admirations, Manchester United's pneumonia matych has decided he cannot separate the poppy from his memories of his own country Serbia being bombed by Britain among other nations in one thousand nine hundred nine. The annual poppy row like all such four or against Bally Hoos both works and infuriates by refusing to admit ambiguity, this correspondent who is a poppy wear for what that may be worth is personally aware of actual current or former military personnel who prefer not to wear one. And if people who donate generously to the appeal, but believe advertising the fact to be gauche people contain multitudes political discourse. In this cursed age seeks to cleave everything into binary oppositions. This will absolutely not be the last word on the subject, but it should be. It is if you like your cut out and keep poppy route adjudication to be referred to every year when the interim between Halloween and Christmas is consumed by this fact, she was ruckus if the struggles and sacrifices of those who lie in Flanders fields and elsewhere were for any one thing it is surely that you may wear a particular symbol or not wear one for whatever. You choose. And it's absolutely none of anybody else's damn business. Monocle twenty four. I'm Andrew mullet.

Wanna see not only not only that, but their desire for control. And really the the reason why Netflix and Hulu and these other companies are getting top-drawer talent is because that's where you, if you, if you if you're with NBC or CBS, you can't even cast somebody who has one line with putting them putting people on tape and sending it the headquarters for their approval. I don't know how well they're going to do by saying. Now when he when he gets shot. Act does. He can't just say, oh, darn it just it's like, no, he can't. He's going to be cursing up. Storm have dealings about. There's like I mean, west wing entertained me for five years without any language violence or anything. So you can make a mazing television without it. But I also think artificial to impose it that that it's hard. It's hard to you. You nailed it any. It's hard to attract the creatives. It's not so much that you can't do it. It's just the creatives don't wanna get an environment with their with their handcuffed. And that's your. Famous for today, Nimick Castle Rock or something. They just need a brand that they were. They were okay with. Yeah, they just do that and then not have Eddy cue in Tim cook and those meetings. I just I just don't know. don't know. Mutation as apple TV network. We're like Netflix, if it were run by Ned Flanders. Unless you're signed up, s speaking as a parent, I'm not that against it. You know, like I have places to go. I wanna go to see that content and knowing that I can have stuff that I'm not worried about my kids, you know, seeing I turns the phone, unfortunately, I'm, I watch a lot of stuff and so I'm very, very thick skin about what I'm watching and I'll forget there's something in it that my kids can't watch, nor that I don't want my kids to watch at eight and ten years old or nine and ten years old. So so I think that and I and I do. I thought about this a lot while while they were talking about it and you know, I, I don't think apple could build an etching up until the, you know, more recently. Disney Disney's done everything, but they built a pretty good base without doing a lot of going going crazy. Pixar done. Okay. Without a lot of gratuitous, violence and swearing. I mean, they sold a couple you know ticket. So I don't think that it's impossible to build a lot of content and apple has the one Trump card that that I think everybody else can't do, which is that they can outbid anybody. They want to any day, that's that's the epithet that according to the Wall Street Journal, some apple employees are calling it expensive NBC.
