"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.

"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.

"Is that what they meant by the question and you well if this is the person that's asking this question they belong to Christ. I'm going to say that you walk by the spirit of the Living God and you know that's a good question you will tell you that. Sounds like a really. I'm trying to back out of answering question. Okay you're going to know your yes law. Maybe you don't know maybe maybe you give too much information and as a mentor you come back take. I shouldn't assured that would probably put the garden. I'm sorry forgive me. I'm asking Mentesa. Forgive me all the time I mean. Boy You'd better be able to willing to do that engenders. Trust by the way to ask for forgiveness so So yeah you're not gonna every always do it well as a mentor. Can you give yourself permission. Can you take not take on shame when you don't do it well so all that to say yeah. I mean I'm thinking of raising. My kids has been that way I approached you know I I was their mentor. Still I'm their mentor. Of Our thirty one year old son came to our home for a two hour meeting in the den decision making process. He's an we. He purchased us as one of his mentors of me. And my husband so You sometimes you gotta let them discover it and not I think I think we should ask way more questions than tell. I think we if we're tallying more than we're asking questions. Now I understand some enters brain to pick yeah And sometimes questions can be used is to manipulate and but if our questions are open ended questions and we really are curious about their answer and were willing to not have the same opinion as our mentality and that's okay with us then. We might help them think through some things before they engage in whatever they're engaging in maybe we can keep them from abject failure failure well right failures failures in opportunity. Learn but I think there is. There is a going back to what you I said. We rely on the Holy Spirit to know that we have to. We have to just in Second Corinthians. Thirteen Paul was in that whole book. He was defending his apostle ship and Got God bless him. You know everything very saying. You're you're such a you're done you don't know what you're talking about So he's having to defend as possible ship and way he does that is he says well crisis in me. Of course. I'm a Yahoo. I'm totally obviously part of Yahoo in right at the chapter he speaks to the reader of the letter. Because when are oh you gonNA realize that crisis in you right Eric. I wish you and I could talk on zoom every morning and I can look at you and say are you gonNA realize prices in new today. Yeah I are we gonNA well. Let's talk about the end of the day and I'll tell you when I didn't right right now and there's practices for that that we can. We can learn those two. Okay so maybe this one way this. My friend Mike he said is the mentor willing to learn from their men tea and we kinda covered. I think it goes both ways forms of mentoring. That's not always necessary. You know I would say if it's counseling mentoring If the mentors making the counselors making about what they need to learn that might really be inappropriate in that form of mentoring right right right right apprentice thing you know an apprenticeship. I love to bake sour dough bread in this as I teach l. how to make sour dough bread. I might. They might be turning the dough in a way. I never thought of that even though there are new newbie. Yeah just for the record. I've seen some of your love's on facebook and look bring you one. Although we can't fantastic I need to bring you a delicious cool. Yeah I think that's great. So good answer is depends on the kind and maybe but not always so well. It's it's a little a little in imprecise but you can discern as you will speaking yes enter should be willing to learn from their many tailing willing. Is I think an important word in that question willing you might not always need to but should you be willing well. Yeah a counselor even might here The the counselees say something an internally there like oh my gosh that's brilliant but they can't be ethically they can't use the rest of their time together to talk about what they need to learn right but internally they might be thinking wow I just really learned something in great from this counseling. They can't make it about themselves. But right right yeah that makes sense okay. So here's another question from Joe and this is he kind of ball read it and then we can talk about so he says does a diagram of the biblical pattern of mentorship. Look more like a pyramid were interlocking circles which I thought was an interesting way to put it and maybe the idea of there's a whole bunch of different kinds. It's just bizarre. Yes that so I have an image. I wish I could like screen shot of it so we'll and when I'm talking about creating a mentoring culture I suggest to group of people that maybe you should find an image that Communicates what your definition of mentoring because some people are very image base. So if you can imagine concentric circles okay. Yeah and that's one human person concentric circles and the and the concentric of the people that are around them okay but a community of people are a bunch onto concentric circles rate. Because they're you know. So here's you and here's me and we each have our concentric circles around you around. You southern we're interlocking with each other and and So that that's the image. I use a pyramid. Why is he suggesting that here? I think because top down break. We're let's say I would say like you're you've got a mentor. And they each have concentric circles. They each have their mentors around them both. The mentioned the mentor. I here at Denver Seminary with mentoring. Professors got having a mentor. It's you got you gotta be living mentored life if you're going to be a mentor. Professor right in all its various forms right. Yup I so I think I think yea pyramid. I don't think I think he is getting at the idea of top down Knowing him probably it's You know this idea. Unfortunately unfortunately some of our churches are structured that way in that the one person at the top gets to dictate everything that happens. And there's a format mkx mentoring with apprenticeships that sure that might look top down like I call that closed close system entering or closed closed posture of mentoring and that the meant he has no control because they're entering into a mentoring process that's very top down and and that can get abusive or misuse. But boy I'm getting ready to go into surgery and my surgeon had mentors. I'm unhooking it was more time right. Yes you know. So top down isn't necessarily bad but it can be misused and it can be or or it can be inappropriate for what needs to be learned as a parent mentor. I didn't want and it was. It was top down Andre in times right go to your own cleaned eh. You know yes right but as we go along. We're trying to move our state our child towards interdependence and so can't stay top down we'll what do you think. Thank you want milk or juice but that is you want to clean your room now or tomorrow right you. Just give them more I choice. It's less hierarchical. So hierarchy has its hierarchy. That might be the wrong word but top down house its benefits it. Yes a great point so so there so it's not all or nothing It's one not one or the other it's May were. We tried to move toward maturity in a way that you can you can. Then you know we've live on your own and mentor others. You know we can have this conversation similar time. Maybe but I'm not sure that always is. The goal at our in in most of our churches are many of our churches. No most mentoring programs and churches fail because it's top down. They they match mentors cement tease. They don't don't here's the here's the number one reason. Why mentoring programs fail? They don't focus on teaching men TS to be learners and to take ownership. I did some research and I don't have the back numbers but in the last ten years around four hundred sixty books have been written on mentoring during only I don't have the numbers in front. Only fifty five have any level of focus towards is being a mentor or a learner. It's all about how to be a mentor. So in the field and it is a field in the field of mentoring focused on teaching. Mentors be mentors or not focused on teaching. She maintains to be men teeth and at Denver. Seminary that's what we're focusing on Mentese's teaching men t's not that we don't train mentors because we do. We are all focused on teaching students. Thanks be learners. Giving them an opportunity to grow in the learn being a learner right. Oh man that's so powerful that really. That's what higher education is about. It took me a long time to figure that out but once I realized I'm learning how to learn it totally changed the game for me right because then you know it doesn't matter if I don't necessarily care for the subject Jack. I'm learning how to learn the subject more explicit at number seminary love it. It wasn't as explicit as when you were suited. Yeah become more. Well I think I think it took like me. You know even like in college. When I finished college I realized? Oh what I've learned here is I don't know everything about Biblical studies right. But I know how to how to think through through these things now so this is one of the reasons why people will ask me discipleship different than mentoring. So when I teach on mentoring forms I don't put deciphering disciple ing in the being a disciple in the list of entering forums because theologically to me mentoring is an umbrella term of all those forums. I think theologically mentoring into cycling are synonyms. EMINEM's but culturally that word. discipleship typically means how you earlier described it. It's a short little experience chance where you go to Sunday. School I went to the Josh McDowell series book when I was a teenager little plastic notebook and I went through it and I was made it cycle and I was done right. I'm I'm a disciple. I didn't really learn how to learn right. But what is disciple mean in the Greek. It means to be a learner. What is the command? A hand is to go make learners. There's no the word. The word discipleship is not in the Bible. That's a process where the Bible doesn't tell us how to go about about doing. It says make learners and be a learner. Mentoring I see as a synonym does discipleship discipleship use that word. We we could call our curriculum discipleship curriculum theologically speaking. We don't use that word because it has too much baggage baggage But theologically we could be using it but it has so much baggage that people think. Oh this is just. I'm going to learn how to read the Bible and pray prey which are really good things to do but being a learner's so much more than that. Yes it's also luke. Two fifty two says Jesus grew in wisdom and stature stature refers to probably his his skill wisdom is about who he was he grew in later in Lucas says he he had to learn obedience. Yeah I know think about Jesus Learning Abedian. So that's right. Gee is so important to the field of mentoring right. Because Jesus is the perfect example being worse he had to grow being learner. Will he shows us how to be human right right. And he had to grow he had to be formed And yet he was without sin he did. He did it perfectly but he's had to learn. Yeah which means not knowing knowing is not sin Jesus was a disciple..

We met together every quarter or a couple of times every semester guest and it really Tom had a huge impact on me. Something I was looking for didn't get in my churches though there were well intentioned people who wanted to to mentor me in some way And so I went to Denver seminary looking for that kind of mentorship and and found it and I think he's had a profound impact on who eventually became so.

"And what is what what the tour of Flanders represents? When. It's a race that finishes without many riders come into the point is a good point on what on really thought before. Because the other races thinks started beyond key and in alleged best allege the women's races tend to be very similar to the the men's and the same as you say the same type writer wins. But you're right with funders the women's race does appear to be quite different type race have changed it since of the night because they taint it goes through GARRETT'S Bergen and to the right has changed since those days. But I still think something that needs to be monitored a bit more across the board across the Callen instead of just these marquee ovens that we mentioned the time. And I think monitoring it is exactly the right way to describe it. An exactly the right action to take really calm something to be thinking about it, you know, and not just women's courses being an afterthought. But by the same token was some races should maybe harder. Like Flanders that doesn't mean that they all need to be you know, and it has to be on the merit of the individual race. But you know, I think that's a perfectly valid point that if the type of writers winning both you've probably got the mixture fairly well balanced. But yeah, I just thought it was interesting that she thought that it's not necessarily every single reassess to be harder. Because otherwise, we're not earning are stripes the same way as the man, and we can take these tougher climb. So why not bring them on the actually it has to be balanced for for the breadth and depth to the women's pallet on as it stands on any given year, which always see changes. Very very refreshingly honest. What you guys thought just on the the realities of life as a professional cyclist, and that it's not all kind of living, the dream and milk.

Was because you you know, you can ever see join other cyclists going out and doing their training. And then you become so easy to kind of count the hours that they've been gone. You haven't gone out that day. So you've taken a step back from wherever level they're on. And. Yeah, I mean, it's such a strange publisher.

"We'll Flanders Wisconsin institute for law and liberty, and this is all of the action in the administration is likely not going to be in the form of a legislative fight all of the action that we need to be paying attention to float folks is going to be in in the in the regulatory layers of this administration. 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. Have you made a New Year's resolution to drive for a better company a company that actually cares about their 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.

Apple TV drops 'violent' Dr Dre drama, amid censorship complaints
"Let's I think we have. There's a lot more we could talk about including apple, apple zone, employees, calling the apple TV effort. What are the Wall Street Journal? Say, NBC light. Apple is apparently having a difficult time that killed the Dr Drey a semi biographical tail because it was too violent. They're having a difficult time we, we actually talked about this. I think maybe you anti mentioned. This is difficult for apple with its desire to stay squeaky clean to predict create entertainment people. 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.
