And don't forget to sign up for weekly updates and study questions at formedbookclub .ignatius .com. Welcome again to the Formed Book Club. We continue to discuss Ari de Dubac's extraordinary book here, The Drama of Atheist Humanism. We've done enough now that we can maybe situate where we are as we go forward. You know, the first part, called Atheist Humanism, focused on Feuerbach, Marx, and Nietzsche, with a side note on Kierkegaard, but now part two is Auguste Comte and Christianity. And covered we the first chapter here, the meeting of Comte and Atheism. We're on the second chapter, Christianity and Catholicism. There's four sections, we took antisocial Christianity, where he claims that Christianity is antisocial, because it's basically the soul and God and eternity. Part two is section two is Jesus and St. Paul, where he says St. Paul corrected Jesus and set things straight. Now we're on two interesting parts here, the work of the Catholic priesthood and the Holy Alliance. So we begin again on page 192, section three of chapter two, chapter one of part two. The work of the Catholic priesthood. Joseph, take it away. Well, again, right at the beginning of the first paragraph of this section, towards the top of page 193, it's his weird understanding of history. He seems to believe that Catholicism, strictly speaking, did not come into being until the 11th century, and which by the 13th had already passed into the phase of decadence. So basically the Catholicism didn't even come into being until a thousand years after Christ and only lasted for a couple of hundred years before it basically decayed. So if you're going to begin your understanding of the church with such a warped understanding of history, it's no surprise that all sorts of odd conclusions are going to be the consequence. And the reason why he dates it that way has something to do with what Father said in his introduction. He thought Christianity, in its essence, was something that just had to do with the individual and God. And so if what he wants to worship is the collective, well, that reaches its apex, if you will, in terms of social organization in Christendom, right? So what he thinks is the essence of Christianity are these exterior forms holding together a cohesive society. And that just comes and goes, right? It came and it went, in his view. But if you're looking at worshipping the collective, it makes sense that that's why you would look at it that way. He's mistaking the tree for the fruit, isn't he? I mean, this good thing was a consequence of a thousand years of of inheritance, and it took that long for it to actually mature into the fullness of what you might call the High Middle Ages. But it's obviously a fruit of the thing, which is Catholicism. The thing didn't come into being as some sort of spontaneous combustion, evidently. Yes. I mean, the first quote in that paragraph at the beginning on page 192, where Cope says, since the year 1825, our writings have shown an increasing respect for Catholicism, as he understands it, the immediate and necessary precursor of the religion that has, above all, to consolidate and develop the structure that first took shape in the 12th century. And again, you have this theory of Catholic history that it was just a kind of amorphous movement of Jesus, you know, love and be kind and compassionate. And then after it became a state religion or approved by the state under Constantine in the fourth century, it became hardened in its structure. Oh, but then we have what secular theologians call the Dark Ages. And after the fall of the Roman Empire, there was a lot of confusion, but the church was still present in her God -given form during that period. But he sees, as you said, Vivian, at the end of the Dark Ages, he'll call your Middle Ages, 12th or 15th century, here's where there's a consolidation, and you see the social character of the church in Christendom. By the way, you know, de Lubac writes this during the 40s, his first major work was in the 30s called Catholicism, the social aspects of dogma, in which he made very clear that from the beginning, the Catholic faith has had an intrinsic social connection, which makes sense as a church, after all, we're not an aggregate of individuals who have no relation to each other, except for the fact that we happen to hold the same attitude towards Jesus. Sorry, I'm wandering on there. As Chesterton said in, I think, The Everlasting Man, it could have been orthodoxy, that the church was the only thing that was the bridge that connected the civilization of Rome with the civilization of the High Middle Ages. The church was the connector between the two, the bridge, so it's not as if it just arises out of, as if by magic. And that's what he, he's an everlasting man, where he calls Christ the Pontifex Maximus, the greatest builder of bridges. This Pontifex, pontiff, we have in English, means pawns, bridge, fatre, to make, to build. So it's basically the bridge builder. But he reduces the papacy to being the centralized authority of the church. And, and so he actually wants to replace the pope with himself. But he's actually going to require such total obedience and control, unlike anything the church ever did or ever desired to do. But yes, he talks about on the top of 196, it was by this means, meaning the papacy, that the bonds of society were strengthened. He sees that you can't have the strong bonds of society that he aspires to, you know, a humankind in love with itself without a total authority at the top. Yes, and as we're progressing into the heart of Auguste Pont, you know, Burubak has all these citations that really back up what he's saying about him. I just wonder, he's a brilliant madman. And it kind of like Nietzsche was a brilliant madman, you know. And as we said before, hardly anyone knows that name now. Whereas Nietzsche, Marx, even Feuerbach, those are somewhat household words among the intelligentsia. And we have to ask ourselves a question, we could finish them off. Was he really influential or was it just that he had the thoughts he had ended up being part of the signs of the times and because he, I mean, his life and his writings and his philosophy kind of foreshadow the whole great reset, globalization. Yeah, and some of it sounds very Orwellian in the sense of it also seems to prefigure totalitarianism of the 20th century, you know, where the system, so politics and sociology united in a tyranny. And that seems to be what he's calling for. Obviously, he wanted to be the Fuhrer and that didn't happen. But basically other people became Fuhrers in his wake, so to speak. Well, the reason why his thought is a big part of the air that we breathe is because he wanted to turn all knowledge of everything into a concrete science, including the knowledge of man himself, the knowledge of the universe, everything he wanted to reduce down to a science. We wouldn't have the expression political science if it had not been for Comte. So the whole, in fact, social science, you know, every university has a social science department, as if these things are sciences in the same way that physics and chemistry. Yeah, you hit the nail on the head there, because as we see later on, he actually, he criticizes empirical science. So in other words, he criticizes the hard sciences because the hard sciences should subject themselves to sociology, to society, to an understanding of anthropology. So, you know, so he's actually becomes, he begins by being someone who uses the empirical sciences as a method of beating God. And then when he seeks to establish his own sociological religion, he then attacks the sciences because they are a threat, because they've got to question some of his presumptions and he's not into being questioned. We'll return to the Forum Book Club with Father Joseph Fessio, Vivian Doudreaux, and Joseph Pierce in just a moment. on the Discerning Hearts free app. Did you also know that you can stream Discerning Hearts programming on numerous streaming platforms such as Apple Podcasts, Google Play, iHeart Radio, Pandora, Spotify, Stitcher, TuneIn, and so many more.

Give me only your love and your grace. That is enough for me. Amen. Amen. We now return to the Forum Book Club with Father Joseph Fessio, Vivian Doudreaux, and Joseph Pierce. He's not so much attacking the sciences for the inability to get the truth, but rather, he has what I think is a legitimate criticism. That is to say, the hard sciences progress by specializing more and more and losing often the larger picture. And so he's in need for something synthetic because science takes things apart and makes small and smaller areas where people, I mean, I live with a Jesuit in Germany. They call him Blitzlach because he was so slow. I mean, in his thinking and walking and everything. But he did his doctorate on the heat -sensitive organs in cockroach antennae, but a specific species or variety of cockroach. And in Germany, you have to do a second doctoral thesis called a meditation to be a professor. So he did his second thesis on the moisture -sensitive organs in cockroach antennae. Well, I mean, there's no question about it. This was the world expert on the antennae of these cockroaches. But where does that fit? Big picture thing. And so, you know, Kant would say, look, we have to unify this some way. And therefore, he sees sociology and he's the father of sociology. That's right. As the master of science.

I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running the White House folks. I want to thank Charlie, he's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at sierra pacific mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Joining us now exclusively, Senator Colton Moore, a great American. There is fight left in the state of Georgia. And there is an official petition to investigate Fannie Willis, as well as now his letter to Governor Brian Kemp. I'm going to read this. Colton Moore, welcome to the program. Dear Governor Kemp, we, the undersigned, being the duly elected members of the Georgia House of Representatives and Georgia Senate, and compromising three -fifths of each respective house pursuant to article four section two paragraph 7b, making sure my Roman numerals are right, hereby certify to you in writing with a copy of the Secretary of State that in our opinion emergency exists in the affairs of the state, requiring a special session to be convened under that section for all purposes to include that limitation, the review and response of the actions of Fannie Willis. Sincerely, Colton Moore. Colton, welcome to the program. Tell us about it. Charlie, thank you for having me. I mean, we're in a dire situation. After these indictments came out, I woke up, ate my biscuit, and I was like, is there a hair in my biscuit? I mean, this is disgusting. We have a district attorney using taxpayer money, using her government authority to persecute her political opponent to the tune of the death penalty. I will not be a sitting senator in this state and potentially have the former president be executed in the state of Georgia. Yeah, so let's just kind of walk through this. You are now leading a legislative campaign of oversight. What does that look like constitutionally in the state of Georgia? Tell us about it. So I have a job to do as a Senator, Charlie, and part of that job in the legislature is providing oversight. The Constitution gives us some tools to do that. First of which is the power of the purse, right? We control the money. And my constituents, Georgians outside of the city of Atlanta, don't feel that their tax dollars ought to be used for this type of purpose. You know, we've also got the power to investigate any judicial or executive official, and we ought to be doing an investigation on Fannie Willard. And if that investigation turns out that she's corrupt, like many of us suspect, it's time for impeachment. And so what is impeached? So in the Georgia Constitution, the House or the Senate can impeach a prosecutor. Is that correct? That's correct. Yeah, it's one of those checks and balances that we're blessed with here in the presidential system of American government. So let me ask you, read the room for us amongst your colleagues. You're leading this. It's now going totally viral as finally, praise God, good on you. Let's use some of this constitutional power to slow this down, investigate her. Was she given an external power? Why is she and why is she indicting the entire Republican Party, such as Trump? It's John Eastman, Rudy Giuliani, Jen Ellis. It's totally out of control. It's a fellow senator. It's a colleague of mine in the Senate. Is it also included on that indict? So what is what is the temperature check of the Georgia Senate? Is this going to be met? Yeah, please. Yeah, I mean, Republicans in the state of Georgia are asleep at the wheel, OK? Everything is talk, talk, talk. I talked to my other fellow senators and everything's well, you know, we're kind of wait this out, talk about it, you know, post the tweet, you know, let's make a Facebook post. I have a job to do. It's time to take action. And Charlie, let me tell you, right after this and that, I was having dinner with my mother and I told her, I said, no more talk like I have a job to do. Time to take action. And she was worried. He's like, I don't know, you know, they've got these guys charged with crimes that could potentially result in lethal injection. I don't know if I want you meddling in that. And I was like, mom, that's the time to take action, because as a red blooded American, you should never fear a Gestapo political tactic from a power like a D .A.. So I don't want to get you in trouble here, but just I want to I want to drill this down. Your other do you think your colleagues are going to support this? Oh, I think when their constituents start calling them up, they're going to be supporting them. Boom. Right. Because it's time to take action. Well, according according to Fannie Willis, it's a conspiracy to ask your lawmakers to do something. But whatever. Let's let's let's just be clear. So for the patriots of Georgia, they need to call their state rep on their state senator. And what is the ask? What is the order? To help us with this process to begin defunding the district attorney and investigating through the means of a special session. That's our job as a legislature to put a check and balance on this judicial branch, to put a check and balance on the judicial branch. And and praise God, you have the courage. Were you cautioned not to get into this by certain, let's just say older Republicans? Were you told, don't send this letter? You know, the caution comes in many forms. They're all cautious. And that's the scary part. That's what makes me so afraid. I mean, I'm 29 years old, Carly. I do not want to live the next 30 years of my life worried about a regime. I mean, this is some Putin fascist nonsense. So the letter is composed to the governor. Does he have to be the one to actually call the special session? No, no. So part of that check and balance process, the governor himself could call a special session and we could start right now. We could start tomorrow. But the governor has already made his statement. You know, he's looking back at this like this is a 2020 issue. Well, it took 19 days to count the votes. And these individuals have a legitimate concern about the election. Right. They were they were using their First Amendment to express concern about the election. And then now they're being charged with it. They're being taken political prisoner. And so so then you guys can call the session with three. That's right. Without the governor. Right. Without the governor. Does he preside over it or is he called into it or? No, no. The legislature would be operating independently and it gives us full subpoena power. So what are the what are the numbers, the House and the Senate, as far as the Republican majorities? So if every Republican in the Senate signed on, we would have we would have what was necessary. It's going to take every GOP Republican to stand up and abide by the principles of freedom, regardless of whether you like Donald Trump or not, regardless if you have a beef with some of these other folks who are indicted. These folks were using their freedom of expression and they had a concern. So the problem we're going to have over in the House is we're going to have to pick up a few Democrats. The margins are a little tighter there. But here's the other thing about this district attorney. The ACLU reports that half of the inmates in her jail have yet to be charged with a crime. And in meanwhile, we've got Young Thug, Young Slime, who's got RICO charges similar to what these political prisoners are about to have, and they haven't even picked a jury in over a year now. So so now we have evidence it's Young Thug. I thought is this some sort of a rapper or something? I believe so. Yeah, I'm not I'm not a big rap music fan, but his name is Young Thug. And I think the crime syndicate called Young Slime. Got it. So, yeah, so they they're standing for RICO charges and she's going easy on him. Meanwhile, so I mean, and by the way, Fulton County, it's like a third world country. When I go there, crime is up. It's terrible. And yet she's going she's trying an interstate RICO case. I this and claims that she can get it done in like six months. Right. And 18 people. And yet it's ridiculous. And yet Republicans are asleep at the wheel and say, I don't know, just let's let it play out. You know, so we have to wake up the Republican Party. I'm sure you have some colleagues that are going to stand with you, but we have to each Republican Georgia senator one by one. We need every county in Georgia. We need mass mobilization. This is the call to action. I just want you to riff on this. I'll be honest. I love the people of the state of Georgia. I love Georgia. But you guys have really disappointed in some ways in the last couple of years. It's a strange Republican apparatus. This is a chance for Georgia redemption. Yeah, no doubt.
"fourth section" Discussed on History Unplugged Podcast
"Scott here, one more break for a word from our sponsors. At this point, before the fugitive slave act is passed, is this a legal gray zone that they're caught in? Do they fear recapture or is this a matter that isn't really settled by the federal government? And they have some sense of security. What are they thinking at this time period? Oh, it's still an enormous risk for them because, you know, we talk about the speed of slave act of 1850, but there was already a fugitive slave act. And in fact, the constitution included a what's known as a fugitive slave clause, article four, section two, clause three, which says no person held to service or labor in one state, escaping into another shall in consequence of any law or regulation therein be discharged from service. So even the constitution itself says that they owe labor in Georgia, which as enslaved people legally they do, that their enslaver has a right to come pursue them. So there are personal liberty laws and all sorts of things that northerners are doing to get around these laws. But the laws are still there. And so when they're traveling, I mean, I can't even imagine how terrifying this must be when they're getting out of the stage and the hundreds of people around them waiting to hear them speak, they don't know who is out there, whether these are Friends or enemies, they don't know whether there might be slave catchers at any stop, people who might try to drag them back into bondage as was legally the rights of their enslavers. It was really, it must have been really terrifying, which is one of the reasons, again, why they are just heroic in what they do. What did they do for this two year period? And how does their new status influence their decision to ultimately leave the United States after the passage of the fugitive slave act?
"fourth section" Discussed on Project Future
"To the project feature podcast, I'm your host chef Valentine, and this is the fourth section out of 5 in the master nonprofit episode. The episode ended up being almost 5 hours long, so I'm releasing each section on its own. And this one covers everything to do with media. Welcome to section four. In this section, I'm gonna go over all media related strategy. All right, in this section, which is the fourth section, I'm gonna go over all media so that is social media and traditional media like radio and TV. And basically how this works is that you have to think of yourself as a media company first that happens to specialize in whatever you actually do. So your media company that happened to specialize in nonprofit and then specifically what service do you offer? When you think like this, you get in a much more creative space and you also think like with more strategy as you go through all of your ideas. So you're basically working from the end backwards, your verse engineering it, rather than thinking like, okay, we're a nonprofit. What kind of YouTube channel can we have? Like who would actually want to watch stuff that we do, right? But instead, you think about it like if you were a media company and for this, I highly recommend that you actually get people who are specialized in media. So you get a videographer and you get like a copywriter and things like that like take it seriously because brand is going to overshadow everything else that you do. Like I've said, you want to be the company or the organization that people think of when they think they want to volunteer, they want to donate things like that. Because right now, look at the people who are killing the game. Like goodwill, pretty much everyone knows goodwill. Pretty much everyone knows how to use humanity and all the big names that are nonprofits. Like the NFL is nonprofit. And everyone, at least in America, knows the NFL. So, and that's because they handle it the same way. Their front end offer or their front end, they're hooked to get you in is media. So they are actually selling the jerseys in the tickets for the NFL, but to get you in, it's the football game. And that's a show that pretty much everyone wants to watch. Or at least a good portion of the population wants to watch that. And then it creates demand for the jerseys and the tickets and the NFL packages on cable, stuff like that. Now, as I've said in a lot of times in this episode, I do support the hub idea. I think it's probably the best route to go. But until we get there, I want to make sure that your organization and your mission win. You do that with branding. Your organization needs to be the first and loudest one on their mind when they want to donate volunteer or need your service..

"Mark how are you sir Very good great one Thank you for having me on Mark It is my pleasure You've done something very very important respecting state sovereignty and immigration Mark I want you to explain that to the nation Basically we have just issued a formal legal opinion and basically the first of its kind that says that President Biden the federal government is failing to uphold its obligations under the U.S. Constitution And as you know Mark specifically article four section four says that the federal government has to protect us against invasion And the federal government is supposed to be doing dealing with national security border security and they have failed And as a result of that failure I believe our governor and any other governor can indeed say that there is an invasion going on and that I think will allow the states to have more authority and enforcing our criminal laws to help stem the tide of illegal drugs and all the gang of cartel activity that's happening along our southern border and as you know is affecting some of the other states because of the dramatic increase in fentanyl and methamphetamine coming into our

"Three point two billion dollars in tax collections. Thirteen point five percent revenue growth. One point six billion dollars able to be put into reserves for rainy-day funds with two billion dollars already there. What do you do with the money. I think probably thing to do with the money in each of these states to reassert federalism to not be dependent on the federal government to essentially ignore the federal government. And take care of yourself. I i think it's become a necessary critical issue In large part it's become a necessary critical issue because the federal government is doing way more than it should and is running out of money. So i would encourage conservatives to be very vocal at the state level that you need to as a state start reasserting yourself with federalism. I mean look at article. Four section four. Let's let's let's go there. Article for section four of the united states constitution. The united states shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government and shall protect each of them from invasion on application of the legislature or the executive against domestic violence. The united states shall guarantee a republican form of government and the united states shall protect each state from invasion. The united states government is not protecting texas from invasion. There is a very clear invasion happening in texas. It is not an armed invasion of a hostile military bauer. It is still a an invasion. If the united states government is not going to act texas should act. The states around texas should help texas in fact georgia florida south carolina tennessee Trying to think who else Oklahoma nebraska arkansas missouri. They sit national guard troops to texas to help texas at the border because the federal government is not helping texas at the border. There needs to be a of the federal ballots and states. I think probably need to stand up at this point and say you know what The states do matter. We are semi sovereign entities. We are semi sovereign nations. We've seated limited powers to washington. Dc of those powers. Washington dc is failure the basics. They're barely delivering the mail on time and they're not protecting states from invasion from abroad so the state stand up and and take back control and stop acting like you're vassals of washington dc. You're not the left treats states as if they are subdivisions of the federal government..

And then when i saw in real life they did not look at all and so we live with this insecurity that requires us to have to manipulate our. You know our visual appearance in photos to look a specific way. That's not true to who we are. And there's a lot of layers to that because it's not just the it's on the on the very basic level. There's a certain level of distraction that being jacked in. We all are well a lot of people. I don't know if i would say we all are addicted to it. And it's just even when you're just driving and you're at a stop light reaching for your phone trying to see if someone message. That's an addiction right then in but then. Yeah what you're saying. Right now is just the manipulation of actual simulated realities like we're literally simulating realities for other people or even for ourselves just trying to make ourselves feel like we're living something else That was the metaphor that that the matrix was trying to provide way back wine. But you're right like we didn't really have the analog. We didn't have to relate to that science fiction to us at the time twenty years later it is no longer science fiction. It's just a different form. Two degrees i think about it so it starts with antidepressants. it continues with people on their phone. It then it goes to You know people using filters in aging themselves or aging themselves and then in the fourth section is when morpheus shows It's like the words he says it's like it's time to fly every single time that i've heard that phrase is people are about to get a dose of whatever drug they're gonna do and so it's all that it's like so many layers in which our society shoes to jack ourselves in and it's so interesting it's so funny. How the analogy of the matrix is you. Had agents that to control you. That had to make sure that you did. You jam that you stayed scrolling. Let's use that. Let's use that analogy. But not no so at the time. You need four so one of the things that i mentioned in my article is it's not like nineteen eighty-four were you. Need a big brother to be surveilling you nor so if you watch the original matrix there was this big brother figure. Yeah fast forward to twenty twenty one and we've come to the point where we don't need surveillance we freely give away our nation. Our location. Absolutely everything for the sake of functionality. For the sake of our phone being able to do something right now. Every single one of our phones knows what our face looks like a knows what our fingerprints looked like. Dude i just boarded a flight in houston two weeks ago and the boarding process was facial recognition. And i was i. Whoa where did you go through clear. Or was that just what they were doing. No they have screening you. Stand in front of it and it's like gave me my name. Okay aboard wow soil. I was like whoa man. This is heavy. So i wasn't at what level do we like okay. So let's let's put it this way if we're trying to tell people to be more aware of this kind of stuff and obviously the movies doing that. I mean this seems like it's going to be a feature length black mirror episode more or less though it's basically what you're saying is that they're they're they're they're putting up. The black mir is this. This is the black mirror interest. Like that's what it is. So it's it's basically showing. What stope ian type of future tech is like bringing us too because of all of this because of those definitely watched like is very. It's very unsettling show. It's one of those things where i watched two episodes and i got to like. I don't know like watch blue's clues. Yeah the what kinds of things would we tell people to like what action what action which consumption i. Listen you know. One of our former colleagues joe leave.

"You may have heard of maslow's hierarchy of needs. I've taken that as a social science theory translated it into the implement contents so there are what i call five pieces to the hierarchy of employee needs. The business are hierarchy of employee. Needs and what i want you to do is take notes. Because i want you to create a binder and i want you to have five sections to your binder in each of the sections corresponds to one of your needs and a workplace. So you're very. I need is pay so i want you to put these pieces of information in this section. The job post or maybe the email they send you inviting you to to the job the actual job description any other correspondences about the job setting up to interview your offer letter and a contract if that's applicable pain because at the most basic level you need to be paid for what you do. The fair labor standards act as a federal law. That says you have to pay people in as well you know in the amendment to the constitution actually says you can't enslave people anymore. You have to get paid for what you do. So get all that information and put it in that section the second section and your second need policy policy this is what supposedly keeps you safe in a workplace. So this is where the put the employee handbook any agreements that you've signed and any of the additional policies that might come through email. Or what have you during this pandemic. there have been a lot of updates to work workplace policies that are not actually attached to a hamlet yet. So make sure you gather all of that and put it in your policy section of your binder your next need and the next section is partners partners studies. Show that especially for women. If you have at least one workplace best friend you are exponentially more likely to stay on that job. So i want you to begin collecting three areas of partners. I i went to make a running list of all your friends in a workplace. Then i want you to make a list of all of your foes like your enemies people who you feel in your gut just might not be there for you and if they could get out of there might be the people behind that plan. And lastly i want you to make a list of family family in a workplace val would be people who have your same or similar job and there can be some overlap. Here there could be people who are your foes and family are. There can be people who your friends and family but make sure you know who your family is in a workplace. Why because if a case pops off you're going to need to tell the eeoc and maybe even the courts wedneday who are your comparators when you're comparing who's being treated better than you. You need to know who was in a job position similar to yours and so that's why we keep running list of family. So that's your third section partners. The fourth section and your fourth need is progress progress. This is where i want you to keep all of your performance reviews all the opportunities that are coming across your desk to join committees or maybe even apply for jobs any of your training and also if they start writing you up even those little snarky emails. I want you to start putting it in your crabgrass section of your binder. Because later you're going to have to prove that you're performing your job duties satisfactorily in order to win any kind of employment case for the most part so i wanted to keep track of that time. And lastly i want you to create a section called purpose. That's your fifth. Need purpose business where you put information about the company's vision in your vision as well for being there because i want you to always keep in mind when this job is supposed to look like for you. How has your life supposed to unfold. Having a job as i being on a road trip is a destination there. Some place that you want to go. And there's an experience that you want to have always keep that in the forefront because as maslow's says you know this idea of self actualization nazario last human need and that plays out in the workplace as well and so what happens when we go through employment discrimination issues. People will often call it attorneys after the pay gets taken away so that need no longer be meant as we go through the facts. We know it is that there were issues when it came to policy issues when it came to partners and they're definitely issues when they came to progress. So if you can keep all this in line and you understand what's happening you can say i see you. I can see how you didn't include me in your company. I bought into a but it didn't include me. i see you. I see how you gave opportunities these other people in my family on this job. But you didn't give those same opportunities to me. When you start using this system you will be able to see very attacks from a mile away instead of waiting until you get to pay being taken away and then deciding that you need how. I know you took that job because you knew you were good at what you did. I see you know you thought you can make friends. You could climb that letter girl. I see you know you go to work every day. Working on your zone of excellence and yours on a genius. I see you have been near to. But i also see the predictability of humans and how that's been embedded in even in our laws that over and over in this country in particular. It's been shown that when they have an opportunity to do right most employers. Don't and so there needed to be away. The hold them accountable and not even a landmark decision brown versus the board of education. Well enough to knock this country into a place of doing what's right and so the civil rights act of nineteen sixty four had to come so our easy to be but to say very confidently you see them. I see you. I see we can build better cases if you see them coming from a mile away this is attorney anita and this has been legal therapy next time. We're going to kick it up a notch and that you have a basics and you know how to set everything up from the very beginning. We're going to give you some strategy for when things really.

My district bought some buses because our bosses age doubt. And now we're going to be bringing kids back to school again and it was just necessary to do that so yeah i think you'll see a lasting impact but i think it's going to be several years out before we really start to say okay. It was that money that allowed us to do that. And that was the impact that it had. We could have a lot more good things happening for our infrastructure in michigan and across the nation. If the president's bill ever gets through the congress and it's interesting to know christine as we look at the polling on this bill the folks in washington really need to take a look at how their constituents feel about this because the support force overwhelming including among republicans The poll that were that. I'm looking at here. Broke down the bill into four sections repairs to existing energy infrastructure internet access rural communities public transit expansion clean energy technologies and just look eighty percent support repairs to existing energy infrastructure. Seventy eight percent. Rural communities seventy percent public transit as seventy percent clean energy. That's huge. These are huge numbers. And there's the the people who are opposing this plan. You know i accept. There are people who might oppose it like support the the fundamental philosophy behind it but oppose it for whatever reason but overall this is strong caucus opposition to this bill in terms of the republicans in dc. They're so out of touch with what these numbers are showing us. The other thing that the polling shows in section. That's not included in the story of from crooked media. But they they talked about this on their podcast is they pulled people on the various priorities. One of the highest priorities they felt was increasing taxes on corporations and the super wealthy to pay for these things that's incredibly popular across the across the board republicans independents and democrats all support. That and again. You've got virtually one hundred percent republican opposition for anything. That's going to make it harder. For jeff bezos and richard branson to go into space on their joyrides. The god forbid you should. You should tax them. You should tax amazon at all. And they don't even want the irs to have enforcement ability to enforce the current tax laws because that enforcement would be directed against the very wealthiest who have been.

"To episode one hundred twenty four section one thirty eight. I'm your host mark collie as always joined by our other hosts bryson and jacob. How're you guys well We got a lot to talk about today. But i'm i'm doing okay. You know very interested in a very excited record today for obvious reasons that will get into but overall doing okay jason. A road trip at four and two so it could have been worse but it was definitely a good step forward. It's going to be an action packed up. So i can already tell that yeah. They took two of three from the yankees. Then they take two of three from cleveland. Which charlie montoya seemed very proud of that fact they won. Eleven to two in a rain-soaked seven inning game. On friday off day on saturday with game being postponed and then sunday yesterday the doubleheader they take the first one four to one they lose the second one sixty five. And that's what we're going to be talking about mostly today jacob. How're you well. You listed all that. So i mean i'm not doing too well considering that little staff for people. Blue jays played five seven inning games in a row considering all the rainouts and whatnot. Which you know. It's kind of funny. They've played less innings. They should've which is good for the bullpen. But wasn't good enough. I guess but we'll we'll we'll get into that. The first team in major league history to play five consecutive senate. Seven games and the second team is going to be cleveland. Which i think is going to do it today. Because they have either double header today or tomorrow so today. It's it's a crazy time to be a baseball fan especially for the blue jays but yeah so just jumping right into it. Yesterday's game the blue jays. Al four zero going into the later innings. Bring in tyler chat would in the seventh. He walks bases loaded walks in iran to make it five to five. Finally charlie manteo brings an anthony castro to the bullpen. Castro does his job. He gets a sacked fly but that enza game walks it off for cleveland. There was no one warming in the bullpen. Before that charlie. Montayo couldn't have taken out tyler chitwood after he walked in after he walked three straight. Because there's no one warming in the bullpen. This move got. I think probably like the most criticism. I've ever seen against a blue jay manager in the time that i've been a fan. It's been pretty crazy. The amount of criticism that's been leveled onto montoyo. And he had a lot to say about it after the game. But i'll just play the clip from what he did say which is interesting. I'm sure there's gonna be a watch impact about it talking about just a one game two out of three from the yankees to other three from these guys and we're talking about one batting and you know what i'm saying. Yeah he could take him out all that stuff but he's one of our best relievers e you've got to trust somebody one time and let them get out of trouble but again it was a grotesque with the standing job to three hundred. Three doesn't get any better than that. Of course we could swept you. We got one more at one. Three more outs but didn't work out that way. So lots to pack their. What are your thoughts about this. The other people are lot. Lots of people are critical of the other moves. Montayo made removing stripling from the game early using upper fao. Jordan raimondo. in the first game. Personally i only blamed montevideo for the decision not to warm anyone up in the bullpen in that seventh inning. With toddler chat on the mound. That's where i stand..

It looks like so all the hotels the great thing about Indie if people don't know for the final four is dead. It's so condensed. Everything is a ten-minute walk no matter where right so that's beautiful so you can get around really easy all the hotels. So Bob on one hand, I'm like this could be the they should do this in the future when when life gets back to normal. Imagine having all 68 teams and what the atmosphere would be in this city if you had all 16 games here like it would be for me. It's like a playground because I got every coach here. I could see them in their hotel rooms. I could you know, like I could get so much done here, but obviously right now they're only allowed out of their hotel rooms to go to practice to go to games and to go to Victory Field. They have time slots. So I went over there yesterday. I know if you saw them, but but I took some pictures and took some videos from Beyond the fence of the field is split up into like three or four sections. So you've got like teams playing badminton whoop-ass Consin their staff was playing badminton their players were thrown around the football then you had like Texas's playing kickball they have spiked ball, so they got all these things off. and like like, you know, they they're escorted from their hotel.

Either of those things I was working at a fancy cocktail bar by then. I figured if you're a good bartender you can work anywhere in the world. So it's sort of picked that up in rhode island and then it did allow me to move to new york and then i basically ended up doing food. Styling and food writing food. Styling is preparing the food for photo shoots and making it look beautiful so like when you see a photo of food and a magazine or a cookbook advertisement It took at least six people that make that a food stylist their assistant to actually prepare the food. So that it is looking at best at the exact moment of the photograph A prop stylist who was setting the table. A photographer And then they probably both of assistance to and maybe a creative director anyway. So doing that. writing freelance writing not not a very lucrative career. So the food styling paid the bills and then Meanwhile is writing. I mean i've had some great violence. The new york times and savar and taste vogue but the food styling was really paying their rent then about five years ago the summer of twenty fifteen one of those bike messenger friends from that first trip to. Kyoto told me that he had a friend who had this soccer bar in yamanaka. And could i host this friend when he came to new york usa keishi. Mookie who there's a chapter in water wouldn't wild things where i described him as sockeye evangelist because he is very passionate about spreading stock a to the world He came and We i happen to have scheduled a dinner party with some friends. During that time and smokey son he had brought in entire suitcase lockheed basically brought his bar to new york city he had like six shelby. The like big. Big bottles of area probably. Yeah like another half dozen dozen like regular size bottles And then he had five different types of glassware. he had yamanaka shaquille wooden wooden cups from yamanaka. And then he brought out his framed certificate. Expertise of Yeh sommelier certification. At that time i think like fewer than two hundred people had okay and that level of certification and and he then put on his uniform which included this awesome apron. One of those. It's the indigo colored apron and insignia printed on it and the like and white and navy april tie right yes iconic. Where do i get an apron like that goes great to. It's basically like a sake bottle. And a stopover ice and that's a great great logo He said well. If you want an apron like this you've got to come work in my bar said okay. He said well. You have to come two months okay. And then he's like oh right and maybe it was a joke but it became a real plan cool by that fall like that was the summer by that fall. I was in yarmulke okay. And then we're is this. This is like two thousand fifteen twenty fifteen. And at that time i was already sort of thinking. I wanted to write a cookbook book. And and it seemed like a great. I mean how many people get an opportunity to go work at a soccer bar in a tiny mountain village. japan like that's usually a one man show. It just seems like a great opportunity to learn more about sakai and about japanese food. And i wasn't exactly sure where it would lead but it seemed like it was gonna lead somewhere interesting absolutely so water would in wild things. How do you describe the book. It's basically it's about limit cereal culture of yamanaka and the people making the things that define that place their stories and how that we've seen into the culture and community of the place. So like i could have gone all over. Japan profiling different amazing craftspeople farmers. I mean they're amazing. Amazing shokhin all over japan. But what i wanted to do was go deep into one place and show how all those things are connected and you know since this is a show about sock amion i think you know putting it into context like i mean it's great to tasted it's great to know all the technical stuff about it but like how how like what's the context. Why does it matter. What's interesting about it. It impacts people's lives on so many levels in context in the end the sweets within which its main right there are so many there are so many active players in in making that soccer reality on so many levels and so many layers some with seemingly very minor roles in some very central pivotal like the active actually physically making it. But it's a unless you spent as you. Did you know a good five years or whatever now pretty much just entrenched in there. Yeah you're just not gonna see that you can take all the all the soccer courses in the world that you want but it just it's it's not going to resonate in the same way. Yeah although i mean. I don't wanna make. It seem like the enjoyment of sack is inaccessible is contingent upon that. They're fantastic books about the technical aspects of a and and i didn't need to duplicate that i wanted to do something different and Tell stories that would make people care like not only about stockade like but each chapter in my book so water would and wild things and then the fourth section is cultivation each sections That have three or four chapters within each about like each chapters a different person and what they make and spent extensive time with each of them either working for them or Apprentice linked to them or just following them in their work for months or in some cases years and Like i want when people read those two chapters for them to be able to imagine the smells and sights the scenery and and also just relate to those stories. It's it's the driven by the stories of those people absolutely absolutely absolutely so then. How did the process of writing this book in the process of writing a book. You've been working on this for the past lisa two three years yet. So so okay. So twenty fifteen was that apprenticeship at an calabar with us acacia. And at that time. I started i made friends with a paper. Artisan a man making charcoal in his village where he's the only person left that lives in that village. A yamanaka is basically famous for its hot springs. And it's wood turning which are kinda go hand in hand because you make the wooden bowls and cups and then you can tell that to the ons and hot spring tourists so As i met you know amazing. Some of the best would turner's in japan and therefore in the world You're just making exquisite cups and bowls and and sort of got the idea that like you know. I wanted to write the book. As i've described it as sort of like how all these things come together into the culture of town and the community in twenty eight seen you know there was a whole process of writing a book proposal finding agent selling it to the publisher.

Can you imagine being the person hired to create the sculpture. And how much goes into it and how indicative it is of the mystery that surrounds the cia. Looked pretty much everything else. It's incredible especially because it's under lock and key very secretive. It's all hush hush but right in the front right there. It's there for really anyone to try to crack this code and they've been cracking the code since it's been installed only when you solve all four sections can you solve cristos. I again just the idea of having a coded sculpture outside. The cia is so fucking cool. I love it so much. I love the people probably work for such a long time to crack each quadrant. But of course want remains unsolved. That's for you listener. You're just solve a real quick when you have a minutes to let us know jim. Sanborn worked with the employees ed. She'd from pronouncing that right to come up with the cryptographic systems on the sculpture. It's twelve foot high. It's made of copper granite and wood and it kind of looks. I kind of almost a computer paper kind of woven. It looks really cool and it just has a bunch of rando letters. Sorry to get technical everybody. That's what's on there and each section is separate and how you decide how you're gonna crack this code is really up to the person trying to do it.

"No, that's fucking there! It's It's so pitiful. And I guess Jennifer Rubin then seconded the motion that fool from the Washington Post. Didn't mention that in my in my post, but you're absolutely right Jennifer Room, but it was just the worst of the worst. You know the pretend she still pretending to be some kind of conservative? I don't know. I think she's I think she's given that up, although that's how what they hired her for the first place. Yeah, she jumped yet What that a whole lot of people, including Ted Cruz pointed out that the line comes from Shakespeare from Macbeth, and Faulkner used it as a reference in the title of the sound of the theory. And so Andrea Mitchell being just slightly chastened by people, pointing out that her attempt to dunk on Ted Cruz was a fail. She then responded and said, I clearly studied too much American literature and not enough Macbeth. My apologies to Senator Cruz. What's funny about that, Howie? This is the real point of my post is, you know she studied too much American literature like she's a falconer expert, right? Well, anybody who knows anything about Faulkner, who knows anything about that book understands where the title comes from, because because the Shakespeare quote from Macbeth Shakespeare wrote. Life is a tale told by an idiot full of sound and fury, signifying nothing very famous line. Very famous, right, right. And the reason yes. Yeah, exactly that no one went up there with toil and trouble you know, with the witch is the beginning of the rabbit, Right? Right, right, right. And but But But the reason why Faulkner chose that line for the title of his book, the sound and the fury Is because that book is in three or four sections. The first section is written by or you know, narrated by our inside the head of a character named Benji, who is mentally deficient. He's referred to as an idiot. In fact, in the in the book, So the first part of the book You see the world through the eyes of Benji a lot of the time. He doesn't understand what he's seeing, but from his description you do understand you. He doesn't get it, but you do and this is like you said the golf game. She doesn't know what golf is all about, but he explains it, and you want everybody else understands it and gets it. Except for Andrea Metro. Exactly, And so that's the reference. That's the point and anybody who ever studied Faulkner had said that if you were a freshman in college and taking in English class, and they read this out of the theory of the very first thing that professor would tell you is where the title comes from, and why it's so relevant to the book. Right. And, you know, just because you know you you you are. I have read Macbeth and or Faulkner. That doesn't make us a better person that someone who hasn't but On the other hand, if you try to dunk on somebody, and you don't know it that made that definitely makes you a worse person than the person you're trying to dunk on. I think exactly right. There's no reason why anybody has to know Shakespeare has to though factor, But don't pretend you do you know when you don't and by the way, Andrea Mitchell turns out wasn't an English major, and that's kind of embarrassing. But there's a bigger point here, Holly and it's one that I've made over and over again. Over the years on power line reporters, journalists, you know, they pose as people who are smarter than we are right. They're always trying to educate us. They think we're rubes. They're always trying to explain why we're wrong and trying to teach us to be better. And the fact is, they don't know anything. For years. I cruise the corrections section of the New York Times and my My Spare time and the correction that I would put up the corrections on power light and talk about him and what you realized when you do that for a while. If the errors that these people would make Things like mathematics, science, history, literature, you name it unbelievable Ignorance shining through in the pages of The New York Times, and that was what made me first begin to wonder.
"fourth section" Discussed on KQED Radio
"A few Republicans who says to vote Yes, on impeachment, He wasn't hey, wasn't beating around in the bushes in that state, and there was a No, and e Think echoes another one of those people that we have watched his is being kind of a more establishment Republican. He's not alone. As we've mentioned Liz Cheney will vote to impeach and she's now one of four. We the During the course of these debate on the floor, we heard From Fred Upton from Michigan, who said, who added his name to the list so he won't be alone. And it's not particularly surprising that just from the makeup of his district, which I'm sure Domenico can speak to That Keiko would be even just in political self interest in defending the district that he represents more inclined to vote for impeachment. And let's hear one of the one of the arguments against the 25th amendment. We did hear Cat Co. They're criticized the president harshly, although he also said he would not vote for the 25th amendment there. A number of Republicans Who defended the president's conduct, who said that he was well within his rights that he conducted a peaceful rally and again, we'll mention in terms of fact, there is the one mention of a peaceful rally, although there the months of the president's conduct before. As well as the rest of the content of that speech, as well as the actual riot itself. But there were defenders of the president who said that the process was wrong. Why is the House of representatives telling the vice president what to do and let's listen to Dan Bishop, Republican of North Carolina? One of those who made that argument this evening? Let's call this what it is. An ultimatum. An attempt to intimidate and bully vice president Pence. They're not seeking just the same ends as Mr McLintock, The gentleman from California said they employ the same means. They seek to bully the vice president to abuse power under the 25th amendment intended to provide for temporary or sudden incapacity of the president. While they claim to be scandalized about the president, bullying the vice president one we could go to abuse power under the 12th amendment. Now setting aside the politics of this I want to throw this open to our panel. There is the question. What we've learned about the 25th amendment. It is a rarely invoked amendment that is about a half century old. This particular provision, where a president is unwillingly shoved out of power has never been invoked. There's never been a serious effort to invoke it. And it's easy to imagine our panel that when this was passed, people did not first see Donald Trump or someone like Donald Trump is president. It's easy to imagine they were thinking more in terms of a president who at a stroke, couldn't do. The job had been kidnapped in some horrible incident or for whatever reason. Could not function in the job. This is a circumstance where the person is still there still in the Oval Office or in the residents still in the position, But there was an argument made that he was doing the job in a in a profoundly dangerous, profoundly dangerous way. Does this seem to stretch the way that we think about the 25th amendment? Look, I think that the modern vice presidency, a lot of people would say was started by Walter Mondale with Jimmy Carter. You know, they had a real sort of What we would look at now as a sort of more modern relationship. You know, you really supported the president was on message with him. Other times, the vice president president didn't they weren't either? Not on the same page or they didn't talk very often. It was really haphazard, depending on their relationship. God, Truman didn't even know about the atom bomb s. Oh, that's a nice way of putting it right. I mean, that's part of why this amendment. Was created in the first place to sort of formalize in case something happened. You know who and how the procedure should go The on Lee things that the Constitution allows for the potential, too. Get rid of a president happens to be the language in this 25th amendment that the fourth section for that has never been used, but could be interpreted to be able to have a vice president. Obviously, you know, through the idea that a president of that their president would not be able to do the job any longer, whether physically or mentally or however else To be able to take him to have people handpicked close to him. To be able to say he's not able can't do the job. We need to transfer power. Or through impeachment, right? And that's been um or used process on Collectively have experienced during our lifetimes it a few times now in 20 years. Yeah, it has not happened at all since you know, for over 150 years or something like that. A prior to tick. Clinton Mara Liasson. I think you had a question for the panel, or for Kelsey Kelsey. One of the things that really leapt out at me was that several Republicans More than several talked about how they had voted to certify the election except the electors, and they used it as a way to say I felt that was the right thing to do. Follow the rules, and now I want to follow the rules, and I think Democrats are twisting them by calling on the Vice president. Oh, Invoked the 25th amendment. Nobody stood up and said they were proud of voting to undermine the election to throw out the slates of electors. I'm wondering if that is a vote. That Either some Republicans regret or they just don't want to talk about it and call attention to it. They made their point with the Republican base, and they would rather just leave it behind. What do you think? My guess would be that It's something that is being left behind in this moment because it may be more useful for them to tip forward. Those people who voted against certifying electors may find it more politically useful to tip forward to impeachment and that that means Be a more useful way for them to deliver their message of being supportive of the president. Yeah, it's and certainly their past experience shows that impeachment worked for them. Last time there was a backlash against it. Yeah, exactly. Now we should mention that it appears that this resolution that we're waiting on the final vote on is going to pass. It's over 218 votes, which is a majority, it's up to 222 119 or Democrats want as we mentioned is a Republican handful looks like about eight people. They're still waiting on to cast their votes. And so within the next few minutes, we will have this formal announcement and then let's look forward a little bit. If we can. Kelsey Snell once the decks are cleared, and people get a few hours of sleep, what happens at nine o'clock tomorrow morning? That is when they will start the process of debating first the rule, which we went through today and then moving on to impeachment. S so there will be the likely about two hours of debate. All together, though they mail may have allowed for additional debate on something as important as impeachment where they want to have members. Uh, speak as much as they possibly can. So they'll begin the debate on the rules of vote on the rule, and then they will move forward with the actual article of impeachment. That is a remarkably fast timeline of people will remember the last time that they did impeachment around this time last year. There. There were hearings, and there were extensive meetings on that just simply didn't happen this time because they didn't have the time. And I would imagine that we would see a rerun of some of the arguments we had this evening and that there will be Democrats with the case that they want to make against the president and Republicans who will defend him in different ways. There. Maybe Republicans as we heard this evening, who defend the president's conduct and say all he did, was speaking a rally. But there will be other Republicans who may not touch the president's conduct at all and will argue about the process and argue why rush the impeachment of why impeach someone a week before he's going to leave anyway? There are questions they can raise, and that's what's so I think we'll be also interesting to look at who doesn't speak. Who avoids having any comment on this and who chooses Torto have their only comment be the vote that they cast. Let's hear one more lawmaker as we wait on the vote to be announced, and we'll cut away if we need to with the final vote, But Greg Steuby of Florida made a number of remarks. In fact, he complained about being kept Firearms being kept off the floor. He referred to that It is an atrocity..
"fourth section" Discussed on Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network
"You're on free talk live go ahead and hey crew. How're you doing fine mark. Hey i just wanna call You've got a hot button issue here I would've called dram fine. If i didn't know the new number if you had one but happy to be Continue imps order and thinks. We're this is an exciting thing and frankly we're in a place in time where people are getting in trouble breathing and walking. It's becoming on hannibal to even live your life when they literally just wanna kill you so for me. He's actually event video. And i look at the fourth section by indication they want to stop the signal and stopping the signal means controlling output and not allowing people to speak freely. And that's why. I have your channel on float Studio waiting for twenty four hour end is your free talk. Live and liberty radio network. Twenty four hours a day seven days a week on float outflow dot. Tv flow is they social media platform that leaves and free speech and promotes free speech. The the basic tentative float is basically anti-spam. And if you're not spamming you're doing fine so you probably met the guys from float. Chris were at the porcupine freedom festival and fort fest for few days. This year probably did a couple young couple from the live in vegas. I believe it is. And that's all i can think what i hear. The name is down here everything flow. It's spelled differently. It's it's not. Yeah i feel like. I feel like i have actually met them as you remember speaking to somebody from vegas just not that yes so it is a centralized platform. But it's one run by libertarian. I understand and ultimately that you know kinda similar to deliver don which is a mastodon run by. That's also federated search federated. That's that's true of course with federation comes the idea of this federation meaning that someone can disconnect from absolutely federation. Which is what happened with gab. So gab started as well guy was its own website programmed by what a by whoever then gab adopted mastery and became the largest mastodon instance. I believe they still are the largest by number of users. mastodon instance and mastodon itself the programmers. Put out a notice. Saying we don't agree with gab. We decelerating from gab. We're disconnecting from gab. And a bunch of other servers disconnected from. It's a little bit more complicated in there so it turns out. I have actually done testing since then and really. Yeah you absolutely as long as your note is not censoring them. You can still communicate with people iraq but my point is with federation comes disfiguration. And that's the federation's that you're right you're right and that's what actually what happened to the gap. Let's which is one of the reasons why i advocate for people being on platform nodes like liber don over nodes that are run by people on the left who are more censorship and exactly. Hey mark Anything else you wanna share about this well. Yeah basically what. I want to show people that they can actually be their own. Tv station their own radio station. They can speak freely. You don't have to be censored. And in fact i teach a process called syndication which allows you to be on firms where you have been banned Because people don't understand how much power they really have over these forms over the terms of service all you have to do is syndicate and you can be there. It really doesn't matter what their policies are when you say. What do you mean you can go on a platform. That's banned you. How does that work. Imagine you know how long order was an nbc show. It's still on the year after all these years. I v you well. They have other channels like tv that play law and order episodes right and sp you episodes and you can watch is syndicated on different networks on television. That's how syndication so for me. Syndication is using conferencing tool to run your feed inviting people into the conference who have their own stream keys on various odd forms and then your feet goes across their key. It doesn't matter. Just get them shutting down on well the you let them know in advance. Hey you know we were banned or whatever they take their own breasts and people are willing to do that and the reason they do. It is because they support you. Gotcha so trying to get your feet out there and just understanding that. It's not likely going to last for for very long. I gotta say. I like what chris does here a little bit better. He's doing his own feed for from his own server. Basically you sort of rolled your own basically when it comes to video streaming live relay server. So you know it. Doesn't you know max out and you don't you don't on On some platforms platform. So i think people show about voting. You can get your own key and you can be active right there on flow actress indicate you can go straight there but i like to promote because of their free speech. So there's actually something interesting. I just found out today that that's even better than flow. It's sounds so pure tube is now doing some sort of It's enabled some sort of centralized livestreaming took out of pure tube is Decentralized from sorta like library basement for distributing videos but it also now apparently does some sort of distributed live that. I've heard from other people who are part of the fedor as i understand it so it integrates with liber don it integrate right math stomach sense. Yep sourced centralized so. It's a cross between mastodon and youtube. My no i know fatty labs supports. It appears i believe in lab is basically a client connects to mastodon mark. Thanks for the call. Appreciate hearing from you tonight. Yeah so yeah. This is definitely something worth looking into peer to now. You said you have not taken the time to really investigate. Haven't been heard. I know of pure to and it sounds good to me. I know i had saturdays yelling. Get there but this. Livestreaming thing is like the killer feature. I think this is from their news page on their website and this is just posted yesterday so pure to version three with p2p livestreaming. According to this. So that's exciting. I want to look into it. It would be interesting to see if that might be a part of how.
Defisafety: Quality Audits on Smart Contracts in the Ethereum Community With Rex Hygate
"I actually started looking at three right after the Dow which was really cool. But and I just looked and then in early twenty, eighteen, some People from consensus reached out to me, and we were chatting about unrelated things. But they said if I wanted to do something I should go to Hath on. So I went to at Denver in two, thousand, eighteen and there I meant Bryant and we started secure dot org which was focused on software process. Documentation for making. blockchain software because we saw a lot of similarity some an aerospace guy. We saw a lot of similarities between aerospace and we started focusing on that. and. That went through twenty eighteen and then kind of fizzled crypto winter and such, and then defy safety. Dot Com is a covid inspired business because I got. Finished with my day job and suddenly had a whole bunch of time and. I wanted to see how I could contribute in. In blockchain as it was coming up and I'm not really a financial guy, I'm not a coder. So I took the roots of. The. Concept of secure breath looking at the the the testing process in the coating process and the documentation process and from that I came up with. The idea of defy. Safety. Score through a device safety audit and I invented the process and in July we went live and I think we've got twenty three audits completed now. What's in these audits? Can you tell us so? The audits are a sequence off questions in four sections. I look at the executing code, the code on the blockchain, and it's things like is the code there can people see the addresses and I only look at publicly available? On its publicly available information. So information on the website on the get hub medium articles but stuff that. A user can easily find if So I. DON'T I try not to look at private stuff and then it's is the code being used as it verified does it match what's in the Software repository is a software repository healthy that's one section. And then encodes in documentation rather it's like. Is there a white paper? Are the requirements documented like have? They said this is what the thing does it a separate document other than the code. And does the requirements or that that documentation fully relate to the code? And then is sufficiently detailed in in comments in the code and is possible the. Aerospace real aerospace like thing. Can you trace from the software from the requirements to the code and to the test like did they put it traceability and that's something that I would say most people don't do yet. And then I have a set of questions for testing and a set of questions for arts. and. And who's the main audience for both like consuming these things as well as going out in like purchasing these things. So, the main audience are users of defiant products and it gives a level of trustworthiness of the code and down in one number percentage and a color red yellow green. So. That's my main target market. So that people have an idea of whether or not you should trust A. Particular application are they being public? Are they showing their? all the information that a normal. As during product would show. and. The obvious question here, which I would ask if I was listening to this or thinking about getting one is, what's the turnaround price of something like this like what was as a user? If I, if I care about our project I, don't understand. Potentially due diligence, but I'd like someone to help me do it. And I want to maybe invest I would like some stronger confidence interval. On something like that like. How soon, I'm going to be able to get that if I come to you and how much it cost is it worth it for me to do that if I'm going to invest in something. So we're still we've only been doing this for two months. So wouldn't say we've got a real market price. It will be under five. K.. And generally results can be done in about a week. Depending on how many people in what I'm working on at the time big. Roughly, so it's a relatively quick process and it's not a an awful lot of money in order to be able to go through the whole process and what comes out is a report. Detailed report looking at each one and then You know you can for a developer wants to improve. You can sit back and talk about it and and. Often there's very simple ways to improve. Sometimes if you're looking at adding documentation to your code, it's we'll take a real investment in.
Better know a distribution: the Poisson distribution
"Hey Katie Hey ben I am wondering if there's anything fishy about what we're GONNA be talking about today. I really had to fish around for ideas for today's episode. Oh God you know French to actually. I don't know French the posts on distribution all right. The only reason that I know of that term is From the Little Mermaid. Of course yes. Yeah yeah absolutely. You're listening to literate aggressions yes. So this is a probability distribution this all about fish No it's not But the push on distribution is actually a thing that if you're into statistics or statistic related fields you should know about okay was Was this person this person. Yes someone someone puts on. I believe that was probably his name. I'm assuming one. Yeah Okay someone franchise say I don't have to have this in my notes. Sorry okay this is just the question I have is. If your last name is puts on does that is that like your last name is fish. Yeah or or is spelled slightly differently or the same spelling all right Mr Fish all right Tillis was on distribution. I'm so this is I don't know maybe a little bit dry. What kind of both. We'll try to punch it up with some fun use cases here. This can be a long twenty. It's going to be running in looking for ways to connect to the point of this. Episode is the push on distribution has actually really handy to know for certain types of modeling that you might WanNa do. It's one of the more kind of applicable mental models that you can have for certain types of data distributions. So when do you want to use this? So this is a probability distribution that is best for as of the model for the number of times that an event occurs in an interval of time or space so anytime you WanNa make some kind of estimate about the distribution of events occurring in time or space. You should be thinking about the distribution so I guess I'm not quite following distribution like a normal distribution or something like that but is it just like a different shape that you would see. Yeah exactly yes. So so I can imagine a normal distribution in my head. It's it's commonly referred to as a bell curve. It's just it's kind of like I don't know if you if you were to make a if you were to draw a hat. But you were to draw like a smooth curvy line we kinda curve upward and then taper off at the top and curved back downward taper off at the end to make fun of the Rim of the hat yes so good example of something that might be normally distributed in real life is. I don't know probably the heights of people for the most part You know the average lists the average height of women is something like five foot six inches. Maybe and then there's You know roughly equal numbers of women. Who are you know five foot five or five foot seven? There's also women who are five foot four and five foot eight but smaller numbers of them. And then you start to get out into the tales of distribution. You get people who are much shorter much. Taller height is literally exactly a normal distribution. But that's that's an example of the kind of thing we're talking about normal distribution. Yeah maybe it's not symmetrical but yeah okay. So I've got this image in my head of what a normal distribution looks like what does on distribution look like. I really want to say a fish. I I just I guess. It does not like like a fish. It does not looking at fish so it depends a little bit on the parameters of the distribution by that. I mean I said that this is the distribution that you want when you're modeling the Events that happen in time or space and if that event is very rare or relatively rare than the ponders has a certain shape. And if it's very common then it will have a different shape. So that's what I mean by. It depends on the parameters. This is same functional form but it depends on the numbers a little bit so let me give an example. Here that will help. Maybe build a little bit of intuition for when you might use this. So do you watch soccer? The one with the hands with the feet with the feet south. Actually if I asked you if you've watched football would make sense but now I think Oh. No I'm telling you that I mean the answer was going to be no no matter what you said but yeah. I guess I just learned something. Okay well you know how. Soccer soccer is a game two teams. They tried to kick a ball into the net. And so it's kind of similar to hockey or something like this My point is that it's it's the one that I mean where there's usually like on average a few goals per game right. Oh okay so we're very. The events are very rare over the course of like a game or really any meaningful Measure of time. Yeah they're comparatively rare and so one of the things that might be Or that is push on distributed is. What's the number of goals in a World Cup match or distributed over all the World Cup matches? And so what you can do to. This is distributed as a croissant distribution where the event is a goal and in in particular. There are a few features of this that. Make it a good problem that that are characteristic of the times when you would want to use it was on distribution so the first thing is that the number of times something occurs has to be an integer. So we can't say something like there's two point one goals that occurred in this game either two or three. So number one has to be injure number of events number two. The events should be independent so the fact that a goal was just scored should not make any more less likely that another goal is scored in any particular interval of time. And you can make an argument for something like soccer whether that's really the case yet. But that's usually it's close enough to being the case that That this applies here and this makes it a good example number three that the rate is constant of the events happening so out measured over long enough time periods. You would see more or less Steady rates but you just don't know when The events are going to happen so another. Good example is like busts bus arrivals at a bus stop you know. On average that Buses are supposed arrive at a constant rate. But exactly when anyone bus arrives. Who knows and sometimes they can get bunched up. And so I guess being bunched up would make it. Not a good percent distribution. But if they're not actually like influencing each other in the traffic patterns than they would be pretty independent if you assume that they're not doing anything to try to either bunch them up or space them out then buses or a good example for poussin distributions as well And then the last assumption is that you cannot have two events at literally the same time you can have them happen very quickly one after the other but each one you can only have one event at a time so you can't have literally two buses at the same stop at the same time. You can't have literally two goals at the same time. So those are those are the four sections of the distribution and those are all held by the held close enough by the World Cup example. Here so what you could do. Is You back you look at all the World Cup matches you measure on average? How many goals occur in a match and so sometimes you'll see that the score. Let's say that there can't be any ties that in the case of a tie they'll play to tie break. So in some cases there can be scores like one nothing or two to one and those are relatively common There's about two and a half goals per game on average if you're look over the entire distribution so most of the time there's between two and three goals On average that are that are being. Well I don't know if that's not exactly the same thing
Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax is now under intense pressure to resign
"Governor Virginia Justin Fairfax has until Monday to resign or it could face impeachment. That's according to Virginia state lawmaker Democrat Patrick hope who said Friday night that he plans to introduce articles of impeachment over sexual assault allegations against Fairfax. Article four section seventeen of the constitution of Virginia says very clearly that impeachment Shelby for high crime or misdemeanor. There's no question that violent sexual assault clearly qualifies as a high crime. Fairfax has denied both accusations. He has no
