He gets his bath. He stops walking out of his bowl and the more that happens. It's almost like it. It's affecting guests on because yes on becomes more and aggressive and it definitely I think isn't is an example of toxic masculinity cuz the more of the Beast becomes human the more he wants to kill him or destroy him or and that's that's the whole goal of this toxic form of you know, masculine. And fetishism, you know where we fetishize the most masculine parts of men. I don't know I'm getting my head is not putting the words together. But the more the page someone is willing to fit into the stereotype more violent proponents of toxic masculinity become about where you like when you look at the end of at least the Disney version. when they're outside, and they're fighting and Gaston head.

Holy crap, you know, I'm going to look up I'm going to find what I was reading about toxic masculinity cuz it broke down. So what's interesting to me? Is that a lot of the themes that go along with toxic masculinity run through the movies that were in the the characteristics that were talking about. So and they don't necessarily a lot of the traits don't need to be toxic like Devotion to work pride in excelling at sports providing for a family protection strength, but then it goes down this nasty Road into sexual assault domestic violence, you know. Oppression of or objectification of women and I guess what's fascinating to me who requested Tarzan? Do you remember we actually don't have that? Okay. So what's fascinating to me is that Tarzan was raised by Apes. He the only time the only time that he is ever violent or hateful is when he is consumed by grief. Yeah, right did his own guy in the in the Disney movie? No, see that she lived. Okay, cuz I think in the novel The humans might have killed the mom. I can't remember the novelty. Well, I just watched a really good live action version of it in the mom did but I but Like Gaston, we don't know anything about his parents frollo in the the novel was abandoned. He was an orphan actually because his parents died of the plague Hans. Does he have. We don't hear about them. Yeah, that's interesting to me. But we know that tell me about Tarzan in Disney cuz I think I have a little crush see crush on him off. It was I loved him because like so came to Africa with his parents, but I believe his parents. something happened with his parents because I don't they drowned or or what had happened but, found him in the Cradle in the in the house house they built and she saved him from the cheetah cuz the keto tried to come get him and you know, she did.

I identify with scar I get our I do again like He's like here like you did bad things but I understand why I know why you're such a bitch. Yeah, I understand cheap.

He didn't because I feel like he is like violent and hateful and he would just kill he would have killed with who I think God. I I can totally see him as a homophobe. Yeah, like a hundred percent. Yeah, because the type of of guys are because you can't have like a a man who's effeminate in any kind of a tall. It's there's so much insecurity with it and I was thinking to myself as I was reading through some odd, but sociology research has been done on toxic masculinity and there's this insecurity in this fear almost of if you're not manly then your gnome Being and it reminded me kind of a podcast and what I'm trying to do, you know talking about expectations of motherhood. It's the same for women. Do you think yeah, that's exactly yeah because like you like there's a mold that you're supposed to bed and you can't stray outside of that page and with toxic masculinity.

Revelations about Cova not lasting on services services, so if that is true, they can really definitively come out and say that doesn't last on services surfaces at all. Then there's no real need to to deep cleanse right, but I think just just because people will be put at ease if that is happening for now and just be extra careful. They're going to be facing a lot of. Criticism scrutiny over the next week. If they can get to opening which you know, we're just a couple of days away now. Numbers are not being supportive of that right now, and if you're an annual pass holder, and you might have noticed lately that you got charged accidentally for four months of membership, so there was a glitch in the system for annual pass holders, instead of being charged month by month, some were charged for four months on one day. This was because back during the pandemic when it started. They were told that they would not be charged for the four months that they were not opened, but somehow accidentally a few of them. A few pass holders were charged for four months. oops. My bad so I'm sure they were refunded. I'm sure I'm sure. They got a voucher to spend money in the parks yeah. Here's a pin. You've got overcharge. Let's go to the parks. Oh. Cinderella, castle is. Complete with its brand new paint job I've shared picture with Patrick from bio. Reconstruct on twitter, Love Bio greater work as always you can see. The castle is almost done with the rose gold on top. The turrets are a deeper blue all its museum seems to be the lower-half which is still in gray. So, it's almost complete. It was the project was started for the Fiftieth Anniversary in two thousand, twenty one, and it's exciting to see. It's almost done so I wonder how that affects the projections. Because reason was I assume was. The projections would show up way better on it. That's a really valid point. I. Feel Good Right now as we know as we know from our project experience in our backyard. We just. We just started projecting movies in our backyard to watch and. It was quite the experience because it doesn't quite have the best picture quality, so I can say. We're kind of expert on the matter now, right? Don't you think we know exactly how to do it? Yeah, exactly. So we broadcast Hamilton. Disney and beyond for that. That isn't really beyond. Is Disney's Disney plus but that would be considered beyond. It's not theme park related, but we can talk about it now. Sure it was great. We watched Hamilton. We had seen it with. The world blowing up around us I got it was kind of surreal in a way because you're watching Hamilton and it starts in seventeen, seventy six, and for those of you don't know. We watched it the fourth of July. Yes. On six so. It's the backdrop of the fourth of July and and they're singing about Yorktown and the battle of Yorktown them bombs dropping in. There's fireworks our neighborhood going off every ten seconds. Just just constantly for like maybe an hour and a half two hours. Fire in the background fireworks in the front and Hamilton on a projection screen. Cool. Yeah, we're going to try the castle show next week on our house. On brick. Who knows how that will go? Anyway. Good news everybody Oguz, Cantina will be joining the list of reopening restaurants want the parks reopened? Shaw sweet it was. And it was off and it was on and I thought it went off because it is a smaller. Atmosphere and maybe social distancing was not going to be. Wasn't going to be a smart issue yet or financially.

There are many other galaxies address Ron's on that list as well. That's good food there. We didn't eat. They're never. Do we have the breakfast Burrito? Oh I thought you meant it Oguz cancel.

Twenty second there were two hundred twelve shootings in two thousand, nineteen, compared to three hundred and sixty six shootings in the same time period this year, that's an increase of one hundred and fifty four shootings seventy two percents, if percentages helps, which sounds very significant. Ramon. Let's start with you. Please you do street outreach work in the communities that are most affected by violence. What are your thoughts on why this June has been so violent? Besides the fact that the pandemic that we all been locked down and don't say it has a is. There's no one thing. The fan damage being locked down the social media people been on now making up these coming up with different types of our, no, saying Argh, with people might comment on somebody's Beige, and they don't like it, and you know what I'm saying in his old historical beefs. You know saying India's newbies when someone is shot now. You got a whole nother B is is there's no one thing you know what I'm saying is like we find it all fronts right now. You know what I'm saying. We are here at dawn. Best can and I'm telling week. Is A new. Every day. What are what are your thoughts on why? This June is so violent? Ramon pandemic, just having just these speaking, you know whoever it is. The quarantine the current teeth, keeping people. You don't secluded their. You know their thoughts running you. Everything's. You know bodily. No put them there. WanNa go out, so it's the same thing with the social media. Everything at all comes together because. On the social media especially right during this foreign team is exceeded of past I mean everything goes for one somebody CDs not on I'll reach workers. We try to do what we cannot social lead us to the best of our knowledge, and to get information on there, but one fantasies are part. We can again no more than that so when they come outside especially right now through this space forward. They're getting Tacoma side just a little bit and get the taste of this warm air. People just don't know how to act and then DC one or not in the street and all. This! And we'll have a number. A number of children have been among the victims this month. We've all covered this journalists for some time. was there not code at some point you know between you know for example if you're out on the streets, and you see a member of the opposition with family members. To with hold your fire until they are alone. Did that code not exist and what happened to it, Mauricio. Along generation after generation kids and you know they came about to where they just don't. Like I I look at it, you know they don't respect the code. No more. There's no more law. There's no more respect for the families for children very now it's just about being gung Ho, and whoever's went you? They're going to get shower too, and I. Don't know where it is wh. Where did he? To shoot anybody which you know like. As a former gang member, it was like you didn't do that. You couldn't do none a day couldn't do nothing night.

"Hello everybody happy while wherever you are on this glorious year revision we can came under your Eurovision Song contest fan you. I think you're even begin to it this year. Weren't you in in Rotterdam so? Have you been coping without the prospect of any sort of live dies than well getting Easter? Now Joel tennis being canceled Irvine being cancelled. Yeah I had tickets for the first time and it's law it was council but hopefully out next year and we had celebration on on the TV last night and had some Swedish food and some cocktails to kind of raise a bit of a glass to what what never happened. But but yeah I think I think you were watching us. Well Joe. You're right yes I was. I catch Lubbock came. I'm going to hold my hand up here. Johnny Logan he comes on the TV and have no idea who he is by turns out. He's he's pretty much the go of of the on contests Mariah a bit. Like the Federa of of your vision life. If you don't tennis you you at least know the name federal. Maybe Johnny Logan could could be a bit like that but yeah. I was quite surprised. You shouldn't you've never heard of him. He's one well three times twice as a singer songwriter. Say He is the kind of the winningest person in in your vision. I guess you could say but yeah maybe actually we can do a European podcast as well. But let's let's go to tennis because we're going to be looking at the Italian. Upn and top eight movements. The happened in rave the last few decades. And perhaps I should lead on this one job because I'm going start with a moment featuring the man himself rapper. One of surprise well yes and listeners. And said he'd rougher bear with us because we all see you're not the end of the alternative Casey's season I mean let's be honest because light Madrid. Rome is Dallas. Hi I think he's one like what nine titles zero something ludicrously say is as as hardly a surprise to kind of see him featured this list say yes came. More is was the first moment. We're WE'RE GONNA be reliving. Well I thought we have liquor two thousand five. Which was you know I play horses and really where he takes. The kind of took it by storm. He won the first time. Yeah his first of nine titles. I think back in five and so he came up against Korea. Who at the time I guess was probably the most to stop ish claycourter of over air or at least one of them very face competitor for sure but the final was another five-set Masters Final five-set thriller? It was over five hours long. Which if you think about now if they were doing that consistently Austin Final Monte Carlo Madrid. That would just be insane. I mean I actually am believe that they used to do this to be called with the but yeah it was. It was a real ding. Dong to one of the better word. Joe Six four three six six three full six and then rougher one at seven six on a law set tiebreak but think about this much. Rougher was a double breakdown and fifth say. Who's three lockdown Sakaria? Really could've gone on us up momentum going away and one but I think really is kind of weakest point throughout his whole career was was his mental strength and he kind of collapsed that combined with with. Rafa you know. Obviously he's attitude his diehard shoot. Never giving up. He was on like a sixteen match winning streak at this point and say obviously he. He had a lot of belief in his game. And but I think Korea would be very devastated after this loss at I think. Actually in his post-match she interceded say this was one of the hardest defeats of his career. I think it was interesting to is. I think Korea probably getting into this matching gains clay season. Yeah he's probably thinking. I'm beatable on clay call. There is no one else out there better than me and who comes along on the Dow eighteen year old teenage eh relatively unheard of and I think this match proved that even when Korea was playing his absolutely best tennis possible. That was someone else out there better than him and I think he was kind of disheartened by that and I think this much great show us. You said mentally he you know he wasn't as strong as some of his other competitors or I think when you're three love up Double in the fifth set us really should be closing that match out and he wasn't able to do that. I think that's one of the things we might associate with a player who you know as brilliant as he is in Korea kind of on the mental side of things. I don't think you could put him up there with the greats and I kind of look at this match. I look at the two thousand four French Open final as well where he Gaston Gaudio. In the final game was five sets but again crucially he was two sets up. He was six love. Six three up was unable to close out the the match. And you know he's probably one of these as you put in the category of greatest players never have one. Ud wonder if if he hit if he had won if he had won this final in in Rome beaten Dow that would have given him the confidence indicate and reinforce that belief that he was and he was at the time the best the best clay court player in the world. I think obviously that loss against scout and then going into this match against Rafeh just his. His mental side of things just wasn't subscription. A Rafeh had beaten him in the Monte Carlo. Final just a couple of weeks before this so again he knew he was up against and he kind of let it. Let it slip away to be honest with you and Yeah so I just thought you know. Obviously this was this was a great match and it was symbolic because again you have this is like the birth of of Raffarin. His kind of play. Call dominance in this. Totally kind of pulsing off of his. You know the best steak or two at the time we had people like Carlos Moya one Ferrara Cowdrey. Kara in a sort of all very good establish trae which just as soon as Raff kind of started working his magic. He'd I guess it kind of became almost impossible. Perhaps to argue against for being the best. Geico

P. N. is huge and former fan because he knows for everything that he's done in his on his life and as a broadcaster he's a fan used to sit in the booth and and former brought that kind of Kerry Kerry sense to bring certain elements to the broadcast bringing guest in you don't get this any more really in Prague castle usually is just to play by play man the color guy and they just kind of banter back and forth but I just remember former allowing a number of gas to be in the broadcast booth with them like most Karen which is always always always great radio when scholar would come in there and start talking to a former farmer asking all these questions about his days with the Yankees and all that stuff so it was it was always interesting to hear form real to talk to other people in the broadcast and so let us some have a reflection of who and former is south sider which that really is really close to my heart I mean the guy who loved the white Sox also close to my heart it wasn't brought up enough in life how much informal really love the white Sox being from the city and all the things that he brought to the table four and as a white Sox broadcaster and personality let's now review the life and times of that form very pleasant.
The Marlboro Woman
"Before the Marlboro Man. Before the Marlboro woman. Even women didn't really smoke. In fact in some places. It was even illegal to help me tell that story. I wrote Aria Bendix into the studio with me. I'm already so on. It gets toasted here as well too. So cool cool. So why don't we start? Warriors a reporter at business insider. Who's covered the history of smoking and Marlborough? Why don't we start at the turn of the century? What was the association between women and smoking so there was a strong negative association between women and smoking. It was not something that polite woman did. There was a lot of societal disapproval. That was definitely the big thing but there was also a few legal attempts to sort of prohibit women from smoking in public in nineteen. Oh four there was a woman who was actually turned in by her husband for smoking in the presence of her children and she faced thirty days of jail. Time for that and then a few years later There's actually a short-lived ban in New York City that prohibited women from smoking in public. So it really was. Smoking was really seen as not a thing. That a lady. Oh well raised woman would do woman of good moral standing. So then what changed? So what changed was World War One inside the White House. President Woodrow Wilson compared with advisors then signed the proclamation of war against Germany and that was really when women started to take on up. Actually enter the workforce for the first time and take on jobs that were traditionally says he'd with men behind every man or the woman at American women were daintily mightily and they also changed their appearance to reflect that so women started to have shorter hair started to wear pants and then they also started to pick up cigarettes by one thousand. Nine hundred thousand American women had won the right to vote but even within the Feminist Movement for some smoking was taboo. Some of the activists for women's rights actually went to great lengths to distance themselves from women who smoked Lucy. Page Gaston for example was a vocal opponent of smoking and drinking alcohol. She wasn't trying to ally herself with women who were redefining femininity. Instead she wanted to empower women who embodied the old Victorian ideals of womanhood who would use their vote to advocate for temperance and respectability and enforce their high moral standards on the broader population. So where does the story of Marlboro Start? So it starts with Philip Morris which used to be British Tobacco Company in the One thousand nine hundred twenty s they really wanted to get a stronger foothold in the US market so they came up with the idea of the Marlboro Brand and in nineteen twenty four. The introduced it as a cigarette brand for women. Nineteen twenty four was a really tough time for a newcomer to be making a play for the US cigarette market at all. Never Mind Marketing to women. That's because it was already pretty locked down by four big tobacco companies. Actually there used to be one gigantic company a monopoly until the US Supreme Court and a bunch of trust. Busting Congressman. Put a stop to that in the nineteen teens. Anyway by the Nineteen Twenties Marlboro. Was this small fish making its debut and upon full of. I'm just GONNA go with this great white sharks so it set its sights on the other. Small fish in the cigarette pond women and since suffragettes Lucy Page Gaston. Were not going to light up anytime soon. Marlboro had to find a way to make smoking socially acceptable for women. It had to make cigarettes. Which many saw as symbols of vulgarity and promiscuity actually feminine by Victorian Standards So one of the first advertisements that they came out with was this quote unquote mild as May campaign may like the month of May delicate breezy dainty elegant for find polite. And there's something amazing about how Marlboro. Sins that message through these ads. Like if you look at them. The women picture aren't even smoking but it almost doesn't because they look so glamorous every one of them sort of had like this dark lib this perfectly quaffed hair. The secret was sort of daintily hanging off their fingertips looking a little bit seductive but it was also somewhat reminiscent of the Victorian ideals of Amenity. That sort of caring us into the nineteen twenties. You see this sort of stereotype of a lady. A very elegant woman that marble woman is basically like the Modern Day Portland of instagram influence. Our I mean everything that women sort of wanted and aspire to be mild is may was everything. A woman could want in a cigarette. The ads made it look like an essential accessory as natural a woman's hand as the lipstick on her lips. There was a lot of concern that women's lipstick would actually get at the end of their cigarette. So what they did was actually create a grease proof tip that would prevent that and it would keep your lipstick looking nice while you were smoking after that. They also introduced a red rim around the cigarette and that was meant to disguise the lipstick itself. We are miles away from the Marlboro Man. Here that even his Marlboro and its parent company. Philip Morris continued to work on making it cigarette look appealing to women. It had a bigger obstacle to tackle. Most women did not know how to smoke. So Philip Morris sponsored. A lecture series that toured the country and taught women the basics. It hit ladies clubs charm. School's department stores and nurses lounges covering etiquette had opened the packages avoid lipstick smears and prevent fires. Oh my God and slowly but surely marbles efforts started to make inroads so the advertisements are resonating with women Marlboros. Getting letters from women thanking them for the ADS. More women are starting to pick up smoking. But it's actually not doing much for the brand itself. It was pretty much failing as a business they were capturing a miniscule portion of the cigarette market at that time turns out. Marlboro. Wasn't the only cigarette company on the block with the bright idea of advertising to women in fact the American Tobacco Company one of the four giants which used to have a monopoly on cigarettes. It wanted to get women to smoke. Just as badly as Marlboro did and its main brand. Lucky strike was a much bigger name than Marlboro. The president of the American Tobacco Company poured about one point five billion dollars in today's dollars into advertisements in the first decade of the lucky advertisements. So they were funneling money into the brand and that sort of reflected in that sales they were sort of catering to everyone and they saw the same opportunity. Marble did that. They weren't actually targeted advertisements to half of the population which was women so they put out a lot of the same messaging. That Marlboro did a lot of that. Same like feminine ideals of Beauty. They weren't a woman's cigarette brand but they certainly began catering their advertisements to women but nineteen twenty nine both companies had been running ads featuring women for years. Marlboro had even gone so far as to show a woman in one of the advertisements. Actually smoking a cigarette. Just holding it seductively. But even that wasn't enough so to break through the negative by surrounding women in cigarettes once and for all the American Tobacco Company launched another offensive. And this one would below the politics of women's smoking wide. Open the president of the American Tobacco Company calls up this Guy Edward Brenes and he's now known as the father of Public Relations and he was actually fun fact. The nephew Sigmund Freud and so- Bernez comes up with this idea to stage a protest in New York City he recruits all. These debutantes who sort of look like the everyday woman but they're also super elegant and he gets them to basically marched through the streets of New York on the Easter Day parade carrying lit cigarettes in their hand and he called the the torches of freedom so cigarettes were known as the torches of freedom the Easter parade. One of the most important events on New York City's social calendar. Women were there to be seen. They were the newest fashions. Their boldest hats and stranded down Fifth Avenue. Like it was a runway. It was such a cultural touchstone. The American composer Irving Berlin even wrote a song about it and it became the basis for a nineteen thirty three. Judy Garland Fred astaire movie new the grandest Bala Anyway crashing. This event was a big deal and the torches of freedom the woman marching down Fifth Avenue in their finery carrying lit cigarettes. That image caught fire. It was a huge news story and it sort of kicked off the idea of women smoking in public really. Yeah I mean I see it as sort of the fulcrum to change the social tied women in other cities as well not just New York City but now San Francisco and Detroit. Were now taking the streets and smoking their cigarettes or torches a free. They had their own torches. Afraid of
Hurricane Irma May Have Destroyed Barbuda's Generations-Old Land System

That's where the government is Barbuda's flat flat like a penny with just fifteen hundred residents. It's the kind of island where wild donkeys.

Bob Yuda when this is Natalia. John Calls her. Hey go take out new. And they both got land for their homes. The way everyone else in Barbuda's gets it people just go cut what they want.

The entire island was made up of five hundred. Enslaved people at its peak and one white manager and his family and when slavery was abolished and the white manager finally left. There were no white people on the island. Just formerly enslaved people so they stayed so the people are left alone left. They're they're sorta live happy. Held the whole island in common. That's what it's called and no one ever came in and said but wait wait. You need property. Titles at some point Barbadians do start leasing.

Which is the Bob? wtdn have always carried this myth. Perhaps maybe a couple of hundred years that they own the land. You say that Barbuda's I have been thinking that they own the land. It is a myth that they own the land but there is a law that parliament the Antiguan. Barbian government passed. That says I just want to read. The the first sentence says enact to confirm that all land in Barbuda's is owned in common by the people of Barbuda right so so it was a dangling piece of legislation he repeals. The law tells Barbadians that you have been living on for free all these years new plan. We're going to sell it to you for one dollar eastern Caribbean. About thirty seven cents.

condition that causes an individual's moods to swing between highly active periods of mania and severe depression according to clinical psychologist Dr Greg in Rica's the mania can inspire euphoria and powerful confidence but the agonizing depression usually lasts much longer effect of the disorder begin to show themselves during young adulthood but science can also appear earlier friends of Joseph recalled times that he appeared to be feverishly upset on the verge of breaking down in tears from an insult or stressful situation then only a few moments later he would collect himself and confidently handle a situation as if nothing had ever bothered him at all but in ETA breezing any concerns over his mental health these incidents caused many to be impressed with his self control after witnessing such a sudden turnaround one friend remark that Joseph was capable of restraining himself with an astonishing self mastery though bipolar disorder vert does result in mood swings these changing emotions are not typically so short lived in addition individuals suffering from the disorder do not I usually have strong control over their temperaments during mood episodes judging by contemporary descriptions of Joseph as a man who could often calm himself down that will it's possible he was not bipolar and simply had a reactionary personality still it's undeniable that he suffered from bounce of depressed Chin often brought about by confrontations with his father it is possible that after years of living under his domineering thumb just developed a town on for acting more in control than he actually was to avoid Eugene's wrath whatever influence Joseph's moods it gave rise to a man distinctly conflicted about who he was he defied his father's wishes by refusing to become an engineer instead he studied law and finance graduating in eighteen eighty six at the age of twenty three despite refusing to study what his father wanted he then followed directly in Asians footsteps and entered politics thanks to his father's connections Joseph got a job in the Finance Ministry the town of Sartre less than ten miles away from his hometown of Luma he worked there diligently for years earning accolades for his intelligence and Astute grasp financial minutia then in eighteen ninety six after a decade in the ministry Kalmet passed away oh Joseph did not mourn the loss of his father hit never developed a good relationship with a man jains constant criticisms had loomed over him for years his death did it make Joseph happy but in some ways lifted a weight off his shoulders but when his mother on a died two years later things were different gone was his strongest source of emotional support and the only woman who felt understood him he felt as if the best parts of himself had disappeared now thirty five Jews continued to be successful in his work at the ministry but didn't have much strength of believe in his politics or many emotional attachments in search of something to latch onto after his mother's death Joseph found a mentor in the new Prime Minister of France Pierre Waldeck Rousseau ear was impressed by Joseph's knowledge fiscal matters over time Pierre came to trust him and those jozef had no high level government experience p you're made thirty six year old Joseph his minister of finance in eighteen ninety nine like father and the Prime Minister Joseph continue you to embrace conservative principles but he was never sure he fully believed in them and unfortunately further career success didn't fill the empty in his life he decided it was time to pursue a romantic relationship in order to fill that void and the years before he passed away the father had always lampooned his single lifestyle perhaps in an attempt at rebellion Joseph had defiantly remained a bachelor but now small there was gone Joseph wondered if he had been right after all as a politician he regularly went to fashionable parties around Paris in search of power and influence now he kept his eyes open for potential mates this brought to bear to pre nineteen o one she was lively socialite a beautiful host and her parties were highly sought after among the Parisian elite she joe zeph began a passionate courtship lasted for years the only problem was Berto was married to another politician Joseph found that the sporadic emotional support from the relationship was enough for him and he was content to keep the affair going Berto on the other hand had a crisis of conscience she wanted to divorce her husband and against Joseph's advice ended her marriage in one thousand nine hundred four Joseph was still hesitant to tie the knot but decided he couldn't abandon a woman who had divorced her husband for him so he married Berretta in one thousand nine hundred six though he later admitted that he doubted the unit and with last around this time he made some other big changes in his life lately he had grown fresh traded with the conservative faction of the government he was initially attracted to the Conservative Party because of his upbringing and background in financial matters he was in favour of controlled government spending but as the years went by he ran up against more and more opposition from conservative legislators they see content to leave things as they were and were loath to make any changes at all even ones he felt were in line with their principles for example full Joseph felt that France should implement an income tax like other countries to provide a much needed source of funding for government programs it was in line with his eales of a fiscally sound public policy but many older conservative politicians who were rich themselves balked at the idea of an income tax they decried him as a traitor and announced it was un-french to disclose one's income to the government Joseph found himself getting closer and closer her to reaching an impasse with his fellow Conservative Party members but it wasn't just his policies that separated him from his colleagues he continue you to erupt in sporadic temper tantrums and gained a reputation for being overly emotional at the time it was considered unseemly and feminine for man to show too much emotion his inability to appear STOIC and attached at all times was seized upon by his critics who called him womanish and vein their case was bolstered by Joseph's unusual way of dressing in the state environment of the Finance Ministry Ah Politicians wardrobe was expected to be as blase and muted as his disposition while most men can find themselves to wearing unflattering black suits jobs enough took extreme pride in his appearance Joseph adjusted his tie and brushed off the sleeve of his jacket they call them a dandy simply because he took the time to dress well and invest in his personal hygiene as if it was effeminate introduce some color into your word trobe he snapped his cufflinks on an examined himself in the mirror he looked immaculate well who cares what they had to say anyway e- certainly got enough compliments outside of the ministry to make up for the dirty looks from his colleagues to Joseph all those old men and their loose black suits were just grumpy unreasonable fossil's like his father he loved to walk by them swishing his perfect tailored coats they wrote him off without even knowing him they squabbled over decorum while he actually tried to get laws passed also like them he looked toward the future as he stood alone in his bedroom he stood over his critics the thought of their fat faces an unkempt mustaches made him sick he clenched his fists as his face reddened one day he would show them they would all be silenced even the nagging voice of his father which had not gone away even after his death Joseph vowed one day his critics would regret calling him womanish he was more of a man than any of them juzef became so furious he actually shook with rage but the sound of a knock at his front door forced him to down he cleared his throat and straightened his trousers by the time he walked down the hall and turn the Knob he was a new man in greeted his visitor with a smile and restrain charm though he occasionally showed flashes of temper Joseph worked hard to contain himself he was an expert at hiding the parts of himself he didn't want anyone else to see after all he had more than

Eating Plant Strong While Chasing a World Record
"Here. We sit in the beautiful assistant family farm. It's it is literally postcard beautiful and bucolic as record this we're about a day away from De. Triathlon with Joe and and wrapping up season one of the podcast and when you have had the really wonderful benefit of of talking with just an amazing list absolutely remarkable and inspiring Gaston as I share with you number times we were walking talking last night over the property and it says I was sharing with you. It's you and your family are among the most remarkable and inspiring people I've ever met in just a wonderful testament to the the benefits and the power of eating plants wrong and last night after dinner. We had a ping pong tournament in your basement here at the farm and you're eighty five year old mom and I were a team and she was literally the weak link on on the team. She's amazing mazing and full of energy and super competitive just the there's a wonderful a testament to the way we eat that and the power of sort of living this way you just recently shattered the two hundred meter backstroke world record for your age group fifty five to fifty nine and so we that'd be Kinda Fun to turn the tables and talk with you about really kind of in depth about what went into that why you did it but also really just talk about the way U E. We've talked now out for a whole season about the way our guest seed and so forth but I imagine people would love to hear what you eat. In the course of a day and we talk about the seven pillars in the seventh pillar is movement and movement and exercise has been a cornerstone of your entire life and so maybe we can start with you talking about your relationship with with exercise and how you move yeah so I've always felt very comfortable in the athletic arena as long as I can remember you know whether it was doing doing the presidential fitness award back in you know fourth fifth sixth seventh eighth grade playing on the on Softball Teams Little League Baseball Basketball in the neighborhood. I grew up in this very idyllic neighborhood. You know in in one of the suburbs of Cleveland Ohio and we would have all these pickup baseball games tennis so I I really as a as a young kid growing up I got introduced used to every sport imaginable right I mean swimming biking running volleyball baseball all the album ball sports and and I and I loved it all but for whatever reason I kind of gravitated towards towards swing it was it was one of those sports that I excel that in highschool really it's funny. I was kind of a late bloomer of sorts. I I was kind of short until about maybe the ninth tenth the grade and that's when I shot up and went from probably five eight five nine up to over six feet and I'm now almost six feet two and then I ended up doing a postgraduate year at a boarding school and it was known as being one of the best swimming high schools in the country. It's called Mercersburg Academy and I went there and kind of repeated my junior year and that's when I needed that extra year and that's when I kinda got a decent and I mean I got good enough to where I had places like the University of Texas at Austin Arizona Tennessee Indiana these universities our cities were soliciting me and offered me recruiting trips and I visited the schools but I of course I landed at the University of Texas at Austin for a number of reasons reasons and Gosh have no regrets because if I wouldn't have gone to Texas I wouldn't of you know. I don't think I would have become a professional triathlete athlete. I wouldn't have met my wife. I wouldn't have become a firefighter and I wouldn't be here today. Talking to you becoming a division one athlete is is a major accomplishment and you did extremely well professional triathlete but then when you stop and then you enter the world and became a firefighter that's win for most people to so they might have played high school sports sports. They might have just been active through school but then they enter the workforce and they they start moving. They have a commute. They sit at their desk all day. life is busy. GotTa get dinner on the table title but you kept going so talk about why you do that and you know what you do in the course of everyday for your workout well. I'M GONNA back back up a little a bit because yes I went to University of Texas at Austin and it was the number one or number two school in the country and I had set certain aspirated for myself. You know every swimmer that that I know of especially Division One they wanna go the Olympics and they want to win a medal at the Olympics right and my father won a gold medal in enrolling in one thousand nine hundred eighty six and so I kind of had high aspirations and so I went to ut and I went there because I was a backstroker and the American record holder was there at the time guy named Clay Brit and the world record holder in in meters guy name Rick Kerry and I'm like you know if you want to be the best you got to go and you know see how the best to it and I just for whatever ever reason I never got as good as I wanted to so I always had this kind of disappointed in where I ended with my swimming career. I think that's one of the reasons why you know frankly. I threw myself into triathlons right because I had this nagging disappointment that just would not go away and I figured it okay if I work harder than anybody else. If I do all the little things right then maybe I can erase some of that disappointment that I had because I never made it to the Olympics. I went to the Olympic trials and was a three time all American but you know you'd be amazed how many swimmers that if they don't get an Olympic medal they feel like they're a failure and I have learned so much you know just in the evolution of our mindsets and what we want and failure and all that but so getting back to your question. Why am I still like you know doing this day. After Day. I think some of it believe it or not goes back to not a lot but a little goes back to my disappointment back in my college days. The other thing is I've fallen in. I Love I fall in love with movement the meditation that kind of I think happens with me and my mind when I'm swimming biking running I just there's a certain meditation that happens especially when you're clicking on also under there's a certain grace and ease in these sports especially especially when you're there when you're fitness is there and it's almost like all right. Let's see what we can do today and I've been swimming with this master Swim Program. I think we may have touched upon this a touch with. Jd Roth an episode five Jay talked about how you know one of the things that keeps them accountable is he has these group of guys that he has is over to his house. They got to come to his out but he has over to his house. You know whatever it's six o'clock and there's like a group of ten or twelve and they've been doing it now for over the decade and they're like best buds got something very similar to that back in Austin. It's with the this rolling would master Swim Program. There's probably ten guys and a few women and we've been together for some of US almost twenty years and you know we're we're there for each other. These guys become some you know the closest friends in my life not only is it a bonding experience with these with these people that we've connect. I've connected acted with for so many years but it also it is such a wonderful way to start your day right. I mean when you when the first thing that you can do in the morning as bang out a a killer workout in it's usually only an hour but I might as a week so it's I usually go five days a week. They have six days a week. I usually go five days a week and that after we swim and one of the things I want you to know is I'm fifty six and I go hard. I mean you know I I. I know some people they get over a certain age and like you know I'm just going to like take it easy and not going to get the heart rate up over a certain level. You know don't want any beads sweat coming down the old forehead. You know I'm kind of like all right. Let's bring it on. Let's let's let's hurt and I do that. I do that a lot and then you get out of the pool. WHO'LL so I've been with you on one of these workers then you got to do pull ups and a pretty amazing core routine so we do some medicine by work we do. We do pull ups yeah we do we do different kinds of variations of plank work outs we're always trying to mix it up and try new stuff but yes so after a swim and then doing fifteen to twenty minutes of cour- work pull ups sit ups man you are like ready to just like dig into the day and and do some damage so at what point did you decide decide okay being a division. One athlete wasn't enough being a world class professional triathlete enough now in a I want to break the world record for your age group. When was that decided so I i. I didn't really have these ambitions of getting the world record I do. Maybe need to say that two and a half almost three years ago. I did try to get the world record four fifty to fifty four year olds but I was fifty four and like like six months old not a good time to try and get a world record because I'm at the very end of the age group and I missed it by a little over like three and a half seconds. It's and I remember hurting so bad in this in this effort and I'm like okay. You know what I'm just. I'm done race and it's just it's it's. It's a a whole `nother level of pain beyond the workouts that I just don't. I don't know if I want to go there and when I was on the ritual podcast rich was like come on you. GotTa do it. You gotta do it for everybody. That's out there and I'm like yeah but you know I had blood coming out of my eyeballs and I had not not literally but that's what I felt like right and I felt like I was breathing out of every orifice in my body so there was some serious pain in my legs felt like lead weights and there was was lactic acid coursing through every molecule of my

Former Bush doctor killed on bike was likely targeted, cops say
"News I'm Mark garrison and for Bo Interesting developments in this murder in Houston of. A prominent heart doctor who was. Gunned down on. A bicycle, let's. Go, live, to Texas. Now ABC's Jim. Ryan good morning. Jim hey Mark The crime, happened one week ago. Today Dr Mark house connect he's a cardiologist well known around the Houston area well known a rum cardiac, circles around, the country a former doctor to ex president George H W Bush he was riding his bike to work again in one week ago today when another bicyclist came alongside him passed him then stopped turned. Around and fired into the body of Dr house. Can hit, him. Three, times Oh wow yeah house died right, to then, and there he was rushed to the hospital. Not too far away but it, was it was too late to, that point so this crime has gone unsolved for a week despite the presence of quite a. Bit of surveillance, video. And images that have been published including images. Of the shooter himself riding along on his bicycle with a big green backpack on his back, new you, can make out a lot of features this guy and yet they're still have been. No arrests and as far as we know no. Suspects even, question about this but. There's some word this morning that now they're at least? Saying that the doctor, was targeted it wasn't. Random correct doesn't look like it was a random. Thing, I don't think anything was even taken from, him as he was lying there, bleeding to death the. Houston police chief yesterday tweeted that there is a high probability that the doctor was targeted those are the, words are, the police chief himself so they're they've broadened their investigation they've changed tactics a bit who did This Dr know who were some of his patients did. He have a, grudge. Share did did anyone have a grudge against. Him so it's much more beyond just a random crime to looking at some sort of conspiracy, Mark and, have yeah and I guess from what we're finding out they must know more than. They're telling if if if the police chief is. Pretty adamant, that yeah he was. Targeted but but won't say anything else You're onto, something yeah Twitter is is kind of a nice. Way to do that because the? The? The tweet went on to say no? Other information is available etcetera so he didn't hold a news conference something or something you know didn't answer. Questions. About it he just put out the tweet, saying it looks as though he was targeted now certainly he's trying to keep up interest in, this, case although interests, around Houston is very high anyway Both. Because of the prominence of this person because. Nobody's, been caught five. Thousand dollar. Reward for information that leads to an arrest so far though the shooter has gone undetected unquestioned apparently plus away the crime. Happened is so interesting I mean it is almost as if he knew the doctor house connect. Would be on a bicycle at a certain time and he goes bicycling besides him. Beside, him and then passes him and turns around and opens fire that's a very. Unusual way to assassinate somebody yeah and certainly right it looks it looks as though they knew what his route was. Going, to be that he would be riding his bike to work you only lives about a half mile away from, the hospital where he was, practicing. That day and so it looks as though this was, well planned, and and quite literally executed. Now the the pictures of the suspect, that are out the ones I had seen. It looked like it would be hard to identify the. Guy or there's some that are better now Well there's one yes there was taken from a boss say Houston transit Bosnia they all have surveillance cameras it's remarkable how many cameras there are yeah yeah so. You know, what they what the police have to, end up doing. Yes they look at the crime. Scene they, look at bullet casings and all the rest but they also look around neighborhoods for the presence of cameras they, look at bus routes to see if a, bus that might have a surveillance camera came trolling by. Ensuring up did so and they're obviously also. Making, appeals for anybody. Else who. Might have dashboard cameras lift drivers often have them in and that could have picked up something but this more clearer image. Does come from the transit from a boss and it shows him riding what appears to be. Kind of a silver ten speed wearing a white hat Tim gane khaki shorts green. Shirt, and and this big backpack on his back and okay so there is a. Little more for them to go one that's that's good all right it is certainly a bizarre crime And of, course, this doctor was pretty famous having, treated, president, George, H. W Bush right yeah I. Mean there are pictures every time the. Story. Runs. There there is a picture of famous picture of Dr house connect standing? There. In his lab coat standing there. Alongside George H W Bush and they're having a, laugh and Bush had all sorts of respect for him he. Tweeted out condolences to the family and and shock on his own part that this was letting had happened to not only his. Position but to his friend and you know they've been volunteers all over the, neighborhood where this happened friends of Dr house connect he was well known. Well respected as a as a cardiologist well liked among the people in, the neighborhood where he lived and in the places where he was working really a mysterious crime Jim thank. You so much thank, smart Yep, ABC's Jim Ryan in Texas so it was a. Week. Ago today that a well known heart doctor Dr house connect. Was pedaling to. Work at. A prestigious medical center and Hughes Guy pedals. By him on. Another bike then, turns around and opens fire and kills him, and the only major, development? Now. Is the, police chief Aaron Houston is saying this was a. Targeted attack against that Dr not saying how he knows that but that is somewhat of a breakthrough now they've just got to figure, out who it is flying had a grudge against the doctor it's eleven minutes.
