"So beca what did you decide to move to La, we'll thank you for asking Rachel. Contrary to what people like to say that I just went to La for fame because that is so far from it. For me personally as a very last minute decision I obviously was going through a breakup. I was back in Minnesota spending time with my friends and family, and there was a hot second in there where it was comfortable it fell normal I grew up there I was like, Oh, maybe I'll buy a house in Minnesota, but then there was still dislike underlying thing that I. Still Wanted California I. Didn't want to spend another winter. In Minnesota I still want him to be in the sunshine so it actually happened because I was face timing with a friend. and. She was just like move to la just do it like. Calling your name you know you're you don't have anything holding you back right now and that night I got the phone with her I looked I went on like red sin or Zillow or whatever APP I was using found a furnished apartment and signed a lease that night didn't tell anyone and so then the next day or a couple of days with by some of my friends and family and I was like, Oh, by the way of moving to L. A. The couple of weeks so It wasn't very thought. It was very spur of the moment, but it was so smart because I will say this i. The. First Time ever came to California was right before I came on the show a couple years ago and I, fell in love with I loved arms I loved the fact that you could really do anything in the state you could go to the ocean you can have the mountains you have the vineyards of cities and I just fell in love with it and so when Garrett and I I got off the show trying to figure out where we were gonNA live at that point we. Threw into the mix, but he didn't want that and so now I'm like well, I'm finally on my own and I'm GonNa, do it for myself and it's the best decision I. Think I've ever made besides getting minnow it's the second Besson okay I'm getting Mariah Carey Butterfly Fives hearing Utah. Wings and prepared fly you can. Maybe because her book just came in and. Getting. Beieve good for you girl I mean very similar to you. I had the I came to La not the first time, but I came to L. A. Right for a baby shower. I one of my best friends has been on here for years when I came baby shower right before a month before I went to a bachelor audition and I remember being there and I was like Gosh I can't describe the feeling that I have here but it's such a vibe I feel very connected to the city and I'm going to come back here at some point and I thought I would move there take a bar and practiced law out in California. Will then bachelor happen it all that and it's something Brian and I have talked about we actually looked for property here three years ago. Right when we finish the show and it just didn't work out because I am very like everything has to be put together and everything has to be perfect very Taipei, and so I thought I cannot come to La until it makes financial sense for me to be out here but an opportunity came about where It afforded me the chance to be out in L. A. and then cove it happened and I ended up still getting a place out here and then extra happen which I thought I was just going to reduce special correspondent work, and then they offered me a full time position and so I already had a place out here because I was gonna go back and forth and thankfully I had the support of Brian who was like go. This is what you've been working for the last few years and we just were like, okay, we're GONNA put pen to paper right plan out for ourselves. So yes, you. Guys we have a plan, we have goals and it's not anybody else's timeline. It's so funny how people are like Oh my goodness you don't you move to L. A. and he lives there and I'm like people in the army live separate from each other people who are consultants have to travel all the time it's not ideal, but it's not abnormal that sometimes you have to do a bi coastal thing. But as long as you have a strong foundation, you're committed to each other and you have a plan. Mike, this is definitely not healthy wanna live forever well I'm glad that you bring that up because. Prior to us, you know airing this. Recording you mentioned that people are still cited in your DM's thinking like, oh, my gosh should you in Brian break up what's going on and? You know it's like. We all experience these weird DM's like this sort of invasion of privacy in different ways. Obviously I got it because I was going to break up a you are in a happy committed relationship and I'm glad that you said other people do long distance for a certain amount of time like the military you know my cousins who are in the military have been married ten years. They've probably spent half that time together because. They can't be together I knew may work. But if you have those goals in mind and if he is supportive and vice versa, you can make it work and so. I think it's great that you have Brian and you know what to be honest. Sometimes, people need alone time like you need to get settled here find your group here and that's okay. Yeah, and I'll be honest. It's hard. I'm not GonNa lie you spend six months quarantine someone it is difficult to change that up i. mean it's like such a stark contrast to what we had before but I think what's important for people to understand that I'm not chasing something I'm trying to build something for our family that we're trying to create, and that's all people really need to know like I get it. We're in the public eye you met us on television followed our. Love. Journey, on television. So there's certain things that you want to know and I and I think in some respects you deserve to know but we're not going to tell you everything I think that it's just important don't don't push your narrative on us give us an opportunity to talk to you guys about it I think that's the beauty of podcasting we can have these open conversations and you feel like you're sitting at the table with us while we're having our little girl chat And that's why like when Pe- There's two types of people I've noticed in my DMZ were in my comments, the ones who care to know and care to ask the questions, and then there are the people who assume they already know and they're already casting their judgements on you and so. The prior option is ones that we can deal with because if we feel like you WanNa have that conversation or to learn a new WANNA ask us in will reply with honesty but it's when you have the people who are like, Oh, well, she moved there so they must have broken up. Rachel's there. You know it just it's a lot of hearsay. So I'm glad that we can do this now back. I think we answered what I was. GonNa ask you what the best and worst part of moving but I think we've pretty much answered. I think. The best part is that we have a chance to be creative and to start fresh in new and build something and the worst part is just other people you know putting their own opinions on us when they don't really understand what it is that we're doing so. I would say. Playing off what you just had the best part is moving to this new city having a new chapter. It feels magical here and the fact that I not only have you know Andy's here and Kayla's here we have so many of the Bachelorette's and other friends from show that that's something that I i. Love I would say so far it's the best part. The worst is just Sometimes living alone, you really have to learn some new things and you know I was used to living with Garrett for two years and he would help me out with a lot of stuff. So now just doing it on my own, but there's a special sense of like. That comes with data really embracing and enjoying even though I get frustrated sometimes, I'm like, Oh, I can't carry all these boxes and like putting a lock on my door and but I'm trying to embrace it and look at the positive of it so. We can't keep talking about la I mean, please keep writing to us because we will keep answering your questions right now we have to get to one of our most favorite girls. So if there's anyone who's GonNa, have some sound advice for moving, designing and living your best life and it's going to be Joe Fletcher so without further Ado, we are welcoming the DIY.

Why Meditation is Not About Stopping Your Thoughts
"Coming, up on this week's mini episode of the broken brain podcasts. The reason you're meditating is for the other. Twenty three hours or twenty three and a half hours in your day. You're not meditating for that moment. That's not where the dividends show up in your life. I've worn them drew pruitt host of the broken brain podcast. If there was something, you do every to boost your focus and productivity feel energized, reduce stress sleep better. Maintain a positive outlook and support Paul by health. Wouldn't you do it? In this week's mini episode of the podcast I, speak with Megan Monahan Emily Fletcher and Light Watkins all three of my dear friends about the common myths about meditation, the Science of Meditation and how it impacts the brain and how to bring meditation into your life in a practical and tangible way. Let's listen in starting with my interview with my dear friend Megan Monahan a certified choper meditation teacher and author of don't hate meditate. So the number one thing that I hear all of you come up to me or you spiritually slide into my DM's and you think that you're going to get out of meditating by saying to. To, me, He Meghan I try to meditate I. tried to start my thoughts. I try to silence. My mind just can't do it. So saying, but I can't do it and and I will happily retort with as long as you have a pulse, you're going to have thoughts. Meditation is not about stopping your thoughts and silencing your mind I. Don't know who created that sound bite, but it has just been haunting all of teachers for ever and ever and ever at this point. So be really okay with the fact that you're going to have thoughts meditation I like to say that meditation is it's almost like eavesdropping. So. If you can recall a time when you are in public member when that happened and we would be overhearing a conversation, maybe you're in a restaurant, maybe you're on a training maybe out in the world and you overhear a conversation most of the time you're not going to jump into a strangers conversation and input your thoughts, right? Because that would be strange. That's kind of like what meditation is meditation is when you get to start taking a step back and just eavesdropping. Eavesdropping on the activity eavesdropping on your own boss eavesdropping on sounds that you can hear or physical sensations in your body, and it's just creating space between you and that activity and practicing doing that while you're meditating and then taking that sort of mental strength that awareness outside of meditation and putting that into practice when you're in your waking state meditations, not about stopping your thoughts number. One thing that I hear. So if that's your excuse, sorry, you have to meditate. The other people say to me a lot and it will happen after class or after with client or whatever it is. They'll say, oh, that was a really good one and I always stop them. And and just reframed not a bit because I. Think we have this expectation that. That it should feel really relaxing that it should that we should have some insight that we should maybe have some Aha moment that maybe we have some clarity navy. We feel a deep sense of stillness that we had access to all of a sudden there. These very cool meditation, need very technical term moments that you can have when you meditate and it's cool when those happen. If any of those things, I just described show up if you see colors if you. Feel a connection to yourself. That's really dope and those meditations are really fun. But that meditation is just as good as the meditation. I did this morning where my fire alarm went off in the middle there. Equally good one was just more fun. When was more enjoyable. The only bad meditation is the one that you don't do. So I think the other the other myth that I would kind of dispel as that nothing needs to happen for it to work in the moment, you just have to do it not on link working out. You know if I'm if I go out for a run, there will be days when when I am running. Running in two minutes in, it feels like I have never run before in my life, and it's so laborious and meaningful, and then I have the days where I feel like I could run marathons on all of those runs were equally beneficial. I just liked one of them were. So basically advocating for the removal of judgment on a medication. Yes. Like the expectation because what happens so to just push it a little bit what happens when we do say that was a good one or somebody says, oh. Man I really knew that that was a good one. What's the fear or what's the concern when somebody judges a meditation as good or bad? So number one, I think with any kind of judgment. It stops being a neutral place for you and I think one of the biggest blessings of meditation is that it's this kind of neutral landscape that you get to rest, and so I think if you have an expectation is already a sense of meaning that you're applying to it that isn't going to serve you and and I think you've set yourself up. Up to two, almost have an out which I'm not a fan of I. Think we should all meditate every day for the rest of our lives. So if you have a string of meditations where it doesn't feel great, you're kind of Ansi or where you hear the leaf blower every time or where the dog is bothering you. Then all of a sudden. Oh, it's not going. Well, I'm gonNA stop doing

It just takes a couple of people to ruin it for everybody. And he says, Well, 95% of restaurants seemed to be in compliance. Some restaurants are not taking all necessary precautions. What I see that disturbs me our tables that are really close together employees not Wearing masks when I see employees not watching Hans, and when I see guests walking around without masks on the ads right now, all sit down. Dining is outdoors in Philadelphia. If seating is within the thermal envelope of your restaurant, you are inside. That means if you close the door or window and you can feel air conditioning or heat, your table is in the wrong place, Fletcher says. Inter Dining is tentatively supposed to start in August 1st, but that depends on whether or not restaurants can handle this phase of opening first, for the longest time, you kind of wanted to get mine. Own business. But that's not the case anymore like we've seen in Allegheny County. It just takes two or three bad restaurants to shut down the entire

T. three staffing team led by Nick Massey on the director of health and Human Services along with everyone in our public health lab who are working tirelessly to break through the barriers to setup process and protocols to get pop up testing in place to have our strike teams going out to skilled nursing facilities and other locations to make sure that we are not only increasing our testing but we're doing it in a thoughtful way that helps inform the actions were taken surrounding corona virus and we obviously have a ways to go and we want to continue to make progress but we I continue to see our testing numbers increase and that does not happen on its own that is a testament to a lot of folks are working very hard and we appreciate their work today reporting four thousand eight hundred and to test our new single day highest number of total you'll also see in the chart there were adding a seven day rolling average we're gonna have day to day fluctuations you can see our seven day average there are just under four thousand per day we obviously want to get to our goal of fifty two hundred we would like that to be our seven day average and not just a one time occurrence but we continue to see positive progress as it relates to testing total test reported to date is a hundred and fifteen thousand eight hundred thirty seven just as our testing continues to increase our tracing the path he continues to increase for now it's two hundred and eighty one contact tracers in case investigators who are out every single day working with those who have tested positive identifying their close contacts reaching out to those folks and doing everything we can to daily tackle and and wrestling control that spread of coronavirus total investigations performed now just shy of seventy five hundred treatment a hundred thirty nine individuals in our public health rooms with over seven hundred cumulative out of today's total testing will share with you the total positive again this is encouraging four thousand eight hundred and two tests performed today a hundred and fourteen of those were positive that is a two percent positive rate that is below our fourteen day rolling average of three point six as we continue to increase testing we expect this number to continue to trend in a downward

"Fletcher I just saw you on fox five so we're so we're giving you a break you don't need your camera for this one thank you all right so we end up with them I'm only I'm only wearing a button up shirt every everything out there on the devil we've seen that with reporters from home and and some and no pants at least up hands on that's a that's a good yeah yeah yeah so let's start over here yeah exactly so let let's talk about the restaurants and the in store shopping people are chomping at the bit any idea when we can actually go inside a restaurant maybe talk to waiter or waitress and and say yes I'd like fries with that yeah I know yeah I I I I believe it could happen as early as this week we're going to get at a briefing from our public health officer when I walk through that the governor's revised criterion for county to move into stage two certainly appears to me that we need the the metrics in the threshold which will allow it to go all the way through the age to buy and get back that important I need them in store retail yeah that's why I do I believe it happened early this week but I will get a presentation for the public health after a board meeting today and then I will certify and then and then what we'll get a sense of timing but it literally could be as early as today perhaps tomorrow we got to get the official word on that but it it it's a look at them and courage in I mean we we have these really difficult competing interests of we know we have to get our economy back movie we got to get people back to work all we ought to know that there is a danger that that is there in some ways were a victim of our own success we did such a great job with the community not in flattening the curve but just smashing the curbs that did it it is kinda crazy that maybe a little bit and comes after the fall of the security and the weapons of history in other countries did you don't want to come out too fast you want to do it responsibly he got a balance that public health risk it's still there as we change what we're doing with the very real need to let you get back to work and and we're trying to know perfect way but we're we're trying to find that balance and and get us out of the movie the response way and get back to work safely so there's a couple of other things I wanted to hit on and I know today the county is voting on how to allocate millions of dollars in federal cares act the money so tell us about that so a few weeks ago I brought forward tonight around child care central child care vouchers which we need appropriate use the federal money and with five million dollars and we've made steady kick in five million get are we doubled our money into ten million but supervisor Dianne Jacob who who it is the longest tenured supervisor in the history of San Diego county and I think that means that I I know people like that criticize politician but at the end of the day someone committed their dirt there like the service they learn a thing or two along along that route and you said you know anything what we need to do is not just have these kind of one off little bit here a little bit there we need a comprehensive framework we need to outline what are the priorities and and let's put that all in one board letters will bring forward aboard better which allocate the appropriate amount for the public health response allocate the money for our city they they need some help they didn't get cared back money they have a burden allocate the pretty thing it can amount of money for economic assistance optically for small businesses I really worry a lot about those not hospitality industry very impacted and then we set aside the money for for a quarterly function and that is around kind of mental health behavioral health you know those folks can't all go to the normal appointments we want to invest in technology we want to make sure that that there's training so we can do true telehealth which is not only right Duterte corona virus but it's something frankly we should have been doing all along and so that we've outlined a lot of those priorities the call will help your child welfare and and and we've got to do what I think of a comprehensive framework that will get us moving forward with clear direction outlined the priorities and ensure this money can can get out and vote for okay and another thing I wanted to bring up is that we've seen this disturbing these disturbing instances of you know a guy wearing a KKK hoods saying it's a mass a swastika on another guy's mask and you're proposing something to be done about things like this yeah we we have a I mean what we have very deep divisions in our country and and and and the reality is there's nothing wrong with that disagreed with one another and there's nothing wrong with us passionately disagreeing with one another on a policy you know even on values or ideology that part of what makes our country great but unfortunately we we've we've seen a a very dark in sterling trade in the recent years a significant increase in the disagreements being rooted in race those disagreements being rerouted in attacking someone's religion in attacking their their ethnicity I hate crimes are an all time high the number of hate groups in America is skyrocketing and and that's simply something that we are better than that of the people it's okay to disagree it's okay to disagree strongly but but what we can do it in a way that doesn't have this real dark underbelly and so that the county that the idea is to bring back a human relations commission and and this is again a single handedly solve all of society's problems but it is the place where folks can get together will law enforcement can sit down with community activists with leaders of of one faith consider with many people of no faith in you get a wide variety of both and and then they start to have been many difficult conversations around how we treat one another because you know what what we're all in this together we're all going to be here and and so figure out you are they're just some some things we can do some education components of public form component maybe there's some policies we need to look at every human relations commission of the spear a place where folks can gather and have somebody on the honest and candid and at times difficult conversation and and I think it can only help the challenges that the that we face in the region Hey let's hope so county supervisor Nathan Fletcher as always joining us every week thank you so much for your time.
Hello, I'm scared of... crime books!
"I think. That's one of the kind of joys and the drawbacks of crime is zone and it's one of the things that annoys me when people always read pieces in the newspapers whereas it's someone making sweeping generalizations about crime this crime that and actually crime is a huge on. R- it's as big as you know it's like saying fiction is this like of course then some parts of fiction it is but crime spans the gamut from really intensely literary right through to kind of pure page-turners an really like terrifying stuff. That is way too hot for me. I'm quite a REC- readers. I chose reader. Yeah yeah that makes for better things stops me is that I'm like kind of scattered Dr. I'm an ex Christian but for some reason I still it kind of affects like how much I really believe in ghosts which is more people and let me say that your Senate Sky Dateline kind of chills and speak. He stuff like there's quite a lot of playing about with that in my books but what I really don't. I cannot read books that are kind of sold. Like people locked in basements or sexual torture or particularly stuff happening to kids. That's just like my my line You know no shade on people who write that. It's we need to explore all areas of human experience in fiction. And that's fine but it's not what I want to spend my evenings immersing myself in you know when you're not familiar with the genre as you say. Sometimes the jackets can similar when they kind of wildly different types of six and it is a bit of a learning curve. I think finding out sort of which bit because I I also have had this stuff about crime fiction through the ages where it's like often this get letting the thing that is scary in the book as a society. We're a little bit afraid of and that can make change throughout the decades but then it also means that on a personal level of the stuff that you're like I'm quite interested in exploring fair and then other stuff that is enjoyable to explore the new stuff. That's definitely I mean. The classic thing that is always talked about is the fact that the golden age of crime was in between the wars and Agatha Christie was writing all the way through the Second World War and wrote some of her best names route. Twelve books I think during the second mobile without stopping sometimes two books a year and people who wanted to read about this and even in the midst of kind of death and bereavement and destruction and bombs and huge uncertainty. They wanted crime and it becomes. Yeah they sort of. Are they exploring phase safely They wanted to live in a world where the impossible is solved. May Right and where bodies brought to justice. I don't know if there was easy. Onces like I would publish a thesis on it and become a PhD. If it's the same with you but like I say. I think that there's probably a lot misconceptions around crime and just named one of the crime writers that I know apart from nightmare modern switched our Agatha Christie and then shallow stuff like that's the only kind of two touch points a puffer Moton wrenches. The I know like what do you come up against misconceptions at variety forgot anymore misconceptions That you have but like do you come up against those things in the book and what which ones are true and which ones are like. Not Surgery are accurate. I think one thing I sometimes maybe misconception. On the hair is that they. They're not always believable and things. Sometimes people read to escape. Some people read to understand that life or the situational things going on in the world a little bit more and I think there are a lot. I know that there are a lot like that. I think that's not necessarily something I believe. I think that sometimes a bit of misconception that it sort of by so many things can happen to someone in the morning but life I watched enough kind of true crime dramas tonight actually extraordinary things do happen to people. That's why I might see rates because I've always struggled with that exact question of I don't want to write a procedural. I don't want to write about police officer because I don't inhabit that world and it's not my area of expertise and you do run up against the question of realistically. How many bodies can an ordinary person stumble? We're not Jessica Fletcher. We don't like Pandora in Cabot Cove and have a corpse waiting there every single day. So you know something that crime writers struggle with as well but I do. I firmly believe that it is completely possible. Implausible for one terrible unlikely incident to strike people in a lifetime. I think we've all been the victims of those and we know people who've had terrible extraordinary things happen to them so I don't think in itself that's but yet when it happens again and again and again. This is an interesting one because you can say that any genre like pick Saad poetry. And how sad can Waldman really be like you know like a little life is like? That's brutal like I think. We can fly that to to cry when actually we can say that about a lot of German. You're always going to be talking about the extraordinary end of ordinary. Even when you know even when it's just a regular life you're writing about it. In some kind of heightened artificial way. No one writes about life as it really happens because it would be incredibly tedious and full of sequiturs either. That's not how fiction works. We accept that it's a kind of construct but yes how far you'll cater for peds to to follow that construct but do you so. Do you read climate. All right if you read stuff and enjoyed it or you just never really got to grips with that. As as you know I have and I remember when I was younger. My Dad my dad is a big kind of threat breeze all the big American crime office and I remember the get that again. It's I remember picking up because I was on holiday and I ran. We ran out two books and I picked up a Ro Robert Ludlum book and I absolutely loved and for years it was the Sigma Protocol and it was one of my favorite books because it had this kind of I was so gripped by the narrative but also had this kind of the end of real big moral question kind of about ethics and I just found really fascinating but then I didn't pick up another one. So it's it's. It's a bit strange so I don't really know why because the ones I have read. I have enjoyed that. I think I also haven't I work in publishing and a low of my reading is dictated by what I work on. Haven't actually worked with any modern crime. Rights is so I don't know yeah. It's not that I haven't enjoyed them. I just think it's interesting like what we bookshop. What we go towards. Because it's what we see ourselves. I'm like I didn't really see myself as a crime rate even though I've read crime is that thing of like what settles in your head and doesn't right if you were going to pick up the next crime book. Let's find one for eight. What would you be looking for in a crime free Even the book. Yeah gives you elements and we'll diagnose. Okay will somewhere with a real sense of place that I can kind of stand on this because we're not going anywhere right now that we need some vivid sensitive travel escape my falls something historical but maybe more kind of twentieth century historical and something. I do think that raises questions. It makes you think differently about something so I kind of like moral ambiguity in well. I have three suggestions for you. If people are sort of struggling to find their way into genre I sometimes think it's helpful to have sort of stepping stone books. That kind of are not necessarily crime but crime adjacent and a book which I firmly believe is part of the psychological thriller Genre and I would probably be one of the best but isn't usually shoved as that regard it is that is Rebecca by definitely Maury Which I think has the amazing sense of place that you're after Obviously it also literary classics. So it's just a really good book to have read if what is adjusted in literary fiction because it's the touchstone for a lot of kind of literary fiction as well as a lot of crime fiction Another book which again is kind of Paul of the Classic Crime Cannon and I think has the kind of moral questioning and ambiguity. That may be talking about Would be the time. Mister Ripley by Patricia Highsmith She is just wonderful writer full stop. She writes very sparsely. She's amazing at creating character. She plunged irritate and it is a crime novel. You're kind of trying to figure out what's happening whether Ripley's GonNa get caught. But she sort of puts you on the opposite side most crime because you're in Ripley skin and you're rooting for him. Even as he's doing terrible terrible things but you also kind of at the same time want justice to catch up with him but in terms of Morton book which I think takes away your boxes including the historical one. I would highly recommend Alabama cheese Series which is set in the Indian raw and has to fantastic Cactus at the center of it. There's some who's an English man who's been kind of Dropped into colonial India in sort of Typically kind of bossing the locals around and then as he's kind of second in command and sidekicks the not who's an Indian And it's just it's brilliantly done and it tackles some really big questions alongside each time. A really cracking mystery in terms of you. WanNa find out whodunit. You WanNa you the detectives to solve it. You want everyone to be bang to rights but he's really grappling with big twentieth century. Questions that estill dogging us today in terms of the fact that we don't have solutions. These are still things the Iraqi going in the news today. I'm they're just cracking a good races

"Here's the editor of Lens. Work Publishing Bruce Jensen. Let me confess right here at the beginning of this podcast that it's not always necessary to know where you've been in order to look ahead and know where you're going but it's awfully useful sometimes to know the history of what it is that you're about to attempt and to know how other people have tried to do what you're about to try to do and to learn from them as they say if. I've seen farther than others is because I've stood on the shoulders of giants. What would this in mind? You can imagine my reaction when the following story occurred. I was attending a photo review session. I was doing reviews there and I was looking through a body of work from a young woman and in the course of normal conversation talking about her work. I said well. This work reminds me a lot of the work of Edward Weston which I intended sort of a compliment but also to indicate to her that what she was doing wasn't necessarily as new and innovative and revolutionary as she thought it was and I was absolutely nonplussed. When her response was who's Edward Weston she had previously explained that she had an MFA in photography. So I wasn't quite sure how to respond to the fact that an MFA graduate in photography had never heard of Edward Weston and didn't know who he was explained a little bit about Edward Weston and the history of photography and she then explained that in the program that she was involved in she did not have to take the history of photography as that was an elective in her program. And I I suppose that's okay but as you can imagine. I was a little bit discouraged by that. But I've softened over the years and I realized that maybe maybe there's more to this than meets the eye because the problem is there's no limit to that train of thought. Okay so maybe you've heard of Edward Weston but you haven't heard of Mortenson okay maybe you've heard of Mortenson but you haven't heard of Ph Emerson. How far back do you go? How much knowledge do you have to have? How obscure a photographer is necessary. In order for you to have what might be considered a legitimate excuse for not ever having heard from of course. Edward Weston's very famous photographer but fame is also something that is curious in this regard. For example I just recently discovered of novelist from the nineteenth century named J S Fletcher. I'd never heard of J S Fletcher and turns out. He was during his lifetime practically the most popular crime novelist of his generation. Rivaling Sir Arthur CONAN doyle and Sherlock Holmes. And all of that J S Fletcher wrote two hundred thirty some odd books and I just discovered I'd never heard of him never heard him referred to in any conversations but yet in his day he was incredibly popular so the farther we look back in history the more some people are going to be obscured by nothing more substantial than time and collective memory that does not however mean that photographic literacy is unimportant in fact. I believe photographic literacy is very important. And here's a good demonstration of why I think so a few weeks ago as in my local library looking through some of the books. They had for sale as part of their fundraiser. And I found an interesting older volume called the reader's digest reader. It's an anthology selection done by Theodore Roosevelt. Not The president. But the president's son I think Published in nineteen forty. The president died in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine so I'm assuming it's Theodore Roosevelt junior who died nineteen forty four. According to Kapiti he anyway so Theodore Roosevelt Junior along with the editors of Reader's Digest. Put together this election published. This book and Roosevelt explains in the forward that he'd stumbled across a box of old copies of Reader's digest which tempted him and he says and I quote. I sat reading back copies for hours every time I finished an article which was off my main course in which I shouldn't have taken the time to read. I thought that I'd read only one other well. At least only one another and then another short run that followed it and another subject piqued my interest and lured me on. Eventually he continues. I dipped into an issue ten years back. But here the interest was even greater the forgotten world came into being not reminiscent Louis but with touches of unmistakable reality. I was astounded to find. How much of the past decade? I'd actually forgotten and how much more I remembered only vaguely. Yesterday's heroes and manners changing social complexions penetrating vignettes tell the story of Art Politics Science and business to find. These things is to have passed before ones is the cavalcade of American Life. And as you refresh your memory. Here's the key phrase by the way Roosevelt says and as you refresh your memory you improve your present perspective. The current scene gains new significance. Close quote what a marvelous way to look at work from the past and couldn't everything that he said about these articles he was finding in old copies of Reader's Digest. Couldn't they apply equally? Well to looking back. At the history of photography that is to say if it's true for the stories in Reader's Digest. Wouldn't it also be true for photography and it motivated me to go back and look through some of the jewels that I have in my photographic library book that I haven't pulled out for a while and I was amazed at what I found for example? Some of those books that I may be purchased thirty or forty years ago seem much more relevant today than they did back then because they were looking ahead in such a way that now in the benefit of hindsight we can see how right they were. And how brilliant? The photography was in. How far ahead of their time? Those photographers were other books. Do don't fare as well. There are others that I have in my library that I looked at from thirty and forty years ago that now I sorta scratch my head and say I wonder why I was so motivated to purchase those books in either case as Roosevelt said the current scene gains new significance. So there's a reason to look back at what other photographers have done. And what the trends in photography have been and we need to recognize that not only is there value but there's no end in that because new photographers from the pastor. Being discovered all the time their archives are being uncovered think. Vivian Maier and that kind of story. But also there's a lot of people a lot of historians who are doing research and discovering really terrific photographers who weren't popular in their time. Maybe they had no audience very small audience and now in the perspective of time we can look back at their work and see. How really terrific was so the idea of developing photographic literacy as a part of our creative life I think is incredibly valuable. And here's another example of why while I was doing all of this digging through my library and looking back I ran across a reference to Henry. Fox Talbot's the Pencil of nature which I had heard about thirty or forty years ago I've known the existence of this very very historically important publication but I never actually looked at it or read it and partly because I didn't know that it had ever been published although I have no doubt that it probably has been

Tracy Anderson - Fitness Pioneer
"I'm Tracy Anderson. I created the Tracy Anderson fitness method. And I am a mom of two. You can find me at Tracy Anderson Dot Com and you can follow me at Tracy Anderson method. What is your workout? I mean everybody knows your name and not everybody might know they're like wow this really great workout. And maybe they feel like they don't have access to it or they don't know exactly what it is but they know that tons leverage are obsessed with tons of people are obsessed with it. And what's the? What is the philosophy? How did you develop it? And why is it taken off so much? So kind of you It the philosophy is that I. My mission is to continuously create balance where there's imbalanced in specifically in women's bodies. It does work great for men but all of my studies have been done on women so I don't feel like it's fair to say that I really know what I'm doing with any man quite honestly so I I went to college on a dance. Scholarship and I gained forty pounds at school for dance and My Dad has fought. He's battled obesity is whole life and my mom was a beautiful. Prima Ballerina and my genetics. Just weren't my mom's once I hit you know. Nineteen twenty twenty one and I felt ashamed in a lot of ways like I felt like this is unfair that I have to be. I'm barely five feet tall in a black leotard and pink tights and I'm like gaining weight and instructors are literally looking at me like why the officially in my class right now. And how does she have a scholarship kind of thing because of the way that I looked like I had some teachers like you have so much talent but like just don't have the body and so I felt like that was really unfair? Yeah so I really focused on Choreography. And I was like you know what I'll be behind the scenes all all learn really all of the elements of craigie really strong Sorry what was what was creating the waking though if you're working out all the time it doesn't matter if people work out all the time quite frankly just because you work out all the time does not mean you're going to make weight and come back in a heartbeat for sure and eat bagging heartbeat but also everybody's metabolic rate is completely unique and completely different. How we store fat. How we need fat. How we How stress affects us like there are so many factors that affect our engines as women too. I mean and our right to dress their children whether we want to have them or not like. It's just a human you know it's part of our system and how that system works for each of us is actually shockingly unique and wait has a lot to do with it. And I think that a lot of people when you're genetically predisposed to certain metabolic rate and you try really hard to fight at our becomes something else you can do a lot of damage to your body and your psyche on a lot of levels and so this is why. It's very important for people to know that my is about creating balance where there's imbalance in anyone's unique body. It doesn't mean I am trying to make you into a teeny tiny dancer or into somebody that you're not so it the I think the passion and the spark for me started then because the counselors it at my school. Where like you know you need to eat less and just eat? Sinoe or like you know your roommates. Do Coke every night. Maybe join them. You know like really know and I just you know for whatever reason my mom I I was raised in a way that thank goodness I never had an eating disorder. I it was never an option or a consideration for me and I never did drugs. I wasn't like in me to do it right I do drink though that anyway so I I felt the I felt what it felt like to not be able to get your body to be something else in a healthy way and I. My mom worked three jobs to put me through school and I had an I joined crunch. I I did pilates with Ron Fletcher. And I was like. She was like scraping. Pennies together. Knows a distinct. How pilates is going to help me if I do step aerobics. And this and that an and nothing would change my body to where I mean. Sure like fitness. When you're working out you feel good. A lot of things can happen but and I was a really good performer. Too so a lot of people. I think in fitness because they can't perform really well. They don't get the calorie spend that you would need to actually start burning real fat so the Diet and the workout have to go so so closely intertwined you know anyway so I tried all these things and then I MY SON. Who's twenty one? his dad played for the New York Knicks? And he was like I love your booty. I don't know why you need to be like. Let's have babies and I'm like yeah. Why always wanted to be a mom that was given and coming from Indiana? We've become moms at twenty three. Because that's what I and but actually it was such a gift because Eric you know when you play for the New York Knicks. If you have an injury you get the best treatment and the entire world. So he was sent we. I spent my pregnancy with Salmon Puerto Rico and with this league that he was rehabbing his back with and I met an incredible incredible doctor who was so passionate about sports and he was like Have you seen Concussion with will Smith Gasoline. Okay so the only difference between will Smith's character in that and finding that protection for NFL players was Desai was an avid basketball fan avid. And he was like these guys are going to end up in Lisi boy recliners for the rest of their lives. No one's thinking about their spines. You know there's a better way to train for the to support their spines BUBBA and I was like I was either going to rescue all of the homeless animals in Puerto Rico or I was going to figure out how to help this guy and I went to his little clinic every day and He had done a mind blowing research on the inner spine muscles. And how the brain is connected and how you don't have to to like if you go. After the transitional muscles in a healthy way like and all the strategic muscle exhaustion. And it's miraculous what we can do and it made so much sense to me because I was like well man if we can make ourselves freakishly large like these bodybuilders. Do or or then I went. I dissect it literally every pro sports like speedskaters for the Olympics or runners. Long distance runners. If you look at people at the top of their game their bodies start to look very similar. Because you're calling to action the same kind of muscles and if you've got that willpower behind it you can really do incredible things with your body. So I studied with him this whole time and I started creating the choreography to support his science and I was like this is incredible and I said wait a minute. Why are we stopping at the back? If you can do this for the back why. Why can't we create this kind of balance and symmetry for the whole body? And he's like no one's ever gonNA come up without much content and I was like I fully em and then I. I did a five year. Study on one hundred and fifty women that I went to Indiana University. I was like how do I do a study? How do I didn't know how to do things and I think one of the things that so corrupt about the fitness industry? Today is that people and I hate to even think that I would be part of this problem which is why I stopped training. Celebrities years ago I literally was like I'm not even higher help oversee their programming come to the gym just like every body else not because I don't love them as people or or what they can. The kind of awareness they can bring forward is so great too. It's because it sends a toxic message to everyone out there that you should want to do what they want to do. Because you want to be them instead of wanting to do what's right for your own health and your own body and In the industry now people think if there they can move or they look good and they get a celebrity all of a sudden they have a method. And I'm like you got method. You gotTA fitness met. The how'd you get word that words all that like research research and I know what it took me and how I was just think naturally without without my ego attached to it because I really didn't think I have permission to be doing this. I just wanted to go back to schools like juilliard or whatever and go. Here's a program you can give these girls where they're not stuffing suppositories up their bum at night and bleeding like you know like it's terrible. It's terrible environment and it's really toxic and So I did the five. You're studying throughout the five year study. I had asked one question. My question was can I take any woman from any genetic background and turn them into what a dancer like looks like so I started from a place that didn't end up wanting to I didn't end up there. But that's that was like this is my mission and as did it I realized. Oh My Gosh. Like all of these. Women are in so many different various levels of pain and they're also unique and then I was like well and also they don't all WanNa go dancers and they don't all they just WanNa you know feel good or on this or and also you can. You can put a bunch of people ask them to do a routine and the same thing is not going to happen to all those

hadn't gone the way she hoped not that big days ever did birthdays holidays weddings graduations funerals they were all to loaded with expectations and the important people in her life rarely acted the way they were supposed to most of them didn't even seem to be working from the same script as she was the maybe that's the more about the important people in her life than it did about big days in

just for the wonderful person he was right now but for the sweep little boy he'd been and the strong decent man he would one day become and she wanted to reassure him to to make it clear that she would be starting a new life just the same as he was and that it would be a great adventure for both of them don't worry about me she wanted to tell him you just study hard and have fun i'll take care of myself but that conversation never happened brendan had overslept he'd been out late partying with his buddies when he finally dragged himself out of bed he was useless too hung over to help with the last minute packing or the loading the van it was just so irrespon- symbol leaving her with her bad back to lug his boxes and suitcases down the stairs and sticky august heat sweating through her good shirt will he sat in his box at the kitchen table struggling with the childproof cap on a bottle of ibuprofen but she managed to keep her irritation and check she didn't want to spoil their last morning together with petty nagging even if he deserved it going out on a sour note would have been a disservice to both of them that's tom perrotta reading from his new novel this fletcher so i love that you have these two parallel transitions mothers transition the single mothers transition when her son he's leaving for college and his transition when he is the one who's leaving and there's so many points in this book where i think he's being so livia to her needs in i thought back to myself when i left for college i wasn't thinking about my parents needs i didn't ask them how do you feel now that i'm leaving home and never would have occurred to me no you think you assume they're all right there's stories are set and you're the one who's on the adventure exactly and that's part of the point of your book the mother story is not set like she's questioning who she is she says sets questioning her sexual orientation she's questioning what kind of life she wants to have how she should shake up her life so what got you thinking about these two parallel transitions the mothers and the sentence and how you could kind of join them together well the first part of it is i think that i've been kind of tracking my own life in in my fiction so my kids were little and on the playground i wrote little children based on those experiences and when they were playing exports in junior high and high school that gave me some of the raw material for the abstinence teacher and the most recent era of my life has been this transition listen to the empty nest and to this post parental moment of reflection like okay this huge project of race in kids is is over what is my life look like now you know what is my wife what is her life look like as well but i never really right straight autobahn fee and it seemed like a much more poignant thing to reflect on what it would be like for women who son was the other person in her family she really is is alone when when he goes to school the empty nest really is empty for her another thing that really sets off the story it's on the day that she's about to drive him to college for his first day there the girlfriend who her son is broken up with comes over for a visit so the mother eve goes out to get gas before driving him to college when she returns she hears that they're engaged in the sexual act and he's giving her her son is giving his girlfriend really his ex-girlfriend these crude sexual commands about what to do to him calling her the b word an- eve is just like a paul like she's in an enlightened woman like she she hates this language she hates everything it stands for and she doesn't know how to have that conversation with him and certainly doesn't want to have it with him on the day that they're partying that he's going to college but she wants him to begin college with the understanding that there's a difference between and sexual relationships in really real life and the soulless encounter he presumably watches on the internet so what made you think about that does that come out of your life to of morning to make sure that your children weren't learning crude condescending ways of speaking to their boyfriend or girlfriend from either learning at from friends from television from porn whatever what i just think it's a really interesting and peculiar moment the american culture because on the one hand there is this kind of crudeness in the way that that we talk and on the other hand.

"fletcher" Discussed on The MMQB Podcast with Peter King
"Yeah, it's it's, it's it's fascinating. I think that I was talking to coach either day who's talking about the await season. We're flacco in that fine come in and have and have a lot of success in that era. And I think that that for a lot of coaches put to bed the idea that every every quarterback needs to sit. But I think everybody's different and I think everybody has a different learning curve, especially with the spread offenses at the college level. I mean, it's some of these guys have never made NFL reads before some of them just kinda count helmets and throw the ball from there so and not only that, but not only have they not made NFL reads, but they really don't audible college football huddle. Yeah, they look at the sidelines, everybody gets their assignment on the sidelines, and then they just go and run the play, and that is what, hey, look. That's what took Marcus mariota such a long time, Tennessee. You know, he practiced that stuff in training camp in front of MIR taking a snap. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. Anyway. Hey, Kevin, great to be with you. Good luck at the ringer of really religiously. And all the best to you have a good year. Thanks Peter. And now my conversation with Fletcher Cox of the Philadelphia Eagles back on the Peter King podcast, I'm joined by Fletcher Cox, the Super Bowl championship defensive lineman with the Philadelphia Eagles Fletcher. I, I'm so curious about what the last six or seven months must have been like for you. You know, kid who grew up in Mississippi. You go to Mississippi State, you come to Philadelphia where football is such a way of life, and I wonder, what was it like to go home to Mississippi is a Super Bowl champion. I mean, say last six months for me is I'm even after before Dan, you know, going back home, especially being from a small town as it every time I go home, I always felt welcome, but to actually win Super Bowl to be. I think the second guy to win a Super Bowl and who was the first Willie Brown Willie Brown from as you city. Yeah. Have you met Willie? Plenty of time may with Brown. I'm mean a lot. I mean, he reached out to me before and after the Super Bowl to congratulate me. But you know, to be the second guy to to ever do that, you know, and as a city, it was special. I mean, they made a special for me when I come back, we had a, you know, a big parade. You know, big, get together to see come out and just enjoy the time and it was been special for me. Yeah. So you have established yourself, you know, clearly as one of the best, I think like versatile, defensive lineman in football, you know, it's e you can be impactful and the interior you know what, whatever your role would be stopping the run being three technique or on the outside. And I wonder, I thought it was really interesting how the patriots attacked you in the Super Bowl, you know, because they were not gonna let Fletcher Cox beat them in this game. Take. Me back to that day and how the patriots played you and how you tried to get off blocks and play against them just going into the whole week. My, you know, back in the back side of my head. I said, I mean, I figured they come out and have two hands amid all time. So just doing during the week of preparing for, I just, you know, went through practice and coach made our for me and just kinda prepare me for it. And that was their whole thing. They were gonna have to says a hands on me at all times. Not gonna. Let me just, you know, just have one on ones and just be myself, but I got that during the season sometimes and you know, I was really prepare for it. And I mean, I gave other guys like Brandon, Chris, Derrick, and TIMMY, you know, chance to go out and and be dominated to join those ones. Yeah. Were you what's looking back now? What surprised you about that Super Bowl? You know, maybe your offense scoring in the forties. Maybe going head to head with Brady him winning some, you guys winning some when you look back at that Super Bowl, what do you think about the way you played in about the way your how your offense play as a team?.
