Is you know if stupid pols well. Then you go with stupid. If the stupid argument moves people that gets an emotional reaction that gets them to the polls than you go with them.

Just make sure all the union bosses tell all our people show up because an evil evil.

Newsom how long you suppose that it will work poppies rape squirrels. How long do you suppose. Democrats can claim all republicans are donald trump. How many years will that last. We think larry elder set all those forest fires outta joke. Oh my god. Apparently donald trump is running the recall. I hadn't heard that it's surprising. Larry elder definitely is he is an author of talk radio who stay a thinker and he joins us now. Larry how are you sir. I'm doing well guys. Larry gonna reenact slavery. My goodness it's going to be armageddon. You know what's interesting about this about this man. Joe biden is he chooses me of being anti women recall the very credible allegation against him by tara reid and and this business about being anti choice. I'm in california. In the event that roe v wade is overturned two thirds of our lawmakers as you guys know are democrats. They are pro choice. What makes you think if roe v wade were overturned and this goes back to the states. All of a sudden these pro choice people would suddenly become pro-life and pass all sorts of laws to restrict access to abortion. It's ridiculous they're doing this because they are scared to death and what they're scared about is black guy from the hood who's going to break this source respell. That democrats had over black and brown voters over the issue of choice among other things. I believe that money should follow the child rather than the other way round parents would have school choice. The majority of black and brown parents want school choice yet. They pull that lever every two years for your six years for the democratic party. And i've been asking them why and they're beginning to rethink their loyalty to the democratic party in their scared sleepless while there are double standards as you and a lot of people have been talking about the last couple of weeks since your campaign and you personally were attacked by a white woman gorilla mask and it got no coverage. I mean it was just shocking. How little media coverage ago and the new the la times as much as calling you knuckle..

No Matter the Election Outcome, Larry Elder Undeniably Shook Things Up
"Election day in california. It's gonna take a miracle but it took a miracle. Donald trump to win in two thousand sixteen. Remember that feeling. You never know you never know and you know. There's there's one thing that you cannot dispute. There's one thing you definitely cannot begin to dispute and that is that larry elder shook up the beast. Pretty badly when you're sitting in sleepy joe biden when you're when you're dragging him into california and you've got everybody when they threw the kitchen sink at larry because they were so afraid of of newsom losing the recall there there. There's been a sea change. There has been a you know you see a lot of people's eyes being opened and no democrat can deny they were very worried. I don't know how it's gonna turn out no idea what it's going to look like. But i like the way larry elder in just a few weeks. Don't forget. He declared his candidacy. What was it a month ago month. And a half ago. And i can't get the image of that miserable creighton with the gorilla mask throwing the get larry's head and if gavin newsom manages to hold on she wins. I mean she's already one largely who is she. Does anybody know a friend of mine pointed out if he is a white man threw an egg at a black democrat.

Boris Epshteyn on the Woman in a Gorilla Mask Attacking Larry Elder
"Look full disclosure. He's a colleague of mine at salem. Radio host larry elder the sage of south central. He is running to replace gavin. And just this shocking video. That msnbc the mainstream media cnn just really isn't interested in what would what would happen if the if the roles were reversed and they white republican in gorilla mask tried to attack a black democrat candidate for anything. Boris the Attacks on larry elder have been so outside the lines have been so despicable but they underscore exactly what democrats are. They're power hungry sebastian. They are racist that. Let's be honest. We know from alana mall rasheed. Leave their antisemitic they will. They will not back off any offensive thing that they can do in order to gain or keep power and that's what's happening and california. That's what's happening to other and it's really terrible to say but this truly is the most the rank form of racism and the fact that the media doesn't care bar is expected. That's what it is that today's media is of course they don't care when when it's republicans who are offended. They don't care they all four women politicians but then with governor palin. They did nothing but viciously attack her and they're doing the city they prefer tend to to be you know above race or posed ratio or not racist than and accepting everybody but of course they attack larry elder and use these racist to do and of course again they use that semitic tropes than an actual anti-semitism to to attack israel to attack jews. So this goes back to the obvious thing about the democrat party if you look at their history through the kkk. Through through jim crow through the south in the sixties and seventies of the past century the democrat party has been the one that has been anti semitic. That's been blatantly racist and has been the one that is disenfranchising america's all across the country. Republican party is the party of inclusivity is the party of opportunity is the party of chance. And that's exactly what the maximum is all about under the leadership of president trump.
Could Biden's Vaccine Mandate Help Larry Elder's Chances in California's Gubernatorial Recall Election?
"I remember fondly how unified we felt after the terror. Attacks of nine eleven. May we feel that spirit of unification again. Today after king george stood before his throne and decreed that everybody must be vaccinated or else he'll get them out of the way It is beyond unconstitutional. It's agreed gis shocking is dreadful to watch this president. And i'm gonna say this. I know the odds are against larry elder just like the odds were against donald trump. Sometimes the odds makers have a way of being wrong and the fact that this over this unconstitutional overreaches happening on the eve of the california recall election. I'm not so sure. This doesn't greatly assist in removing gavin newsom. And electing larry elder governor of california. You know the guy that got eggs thrown at him by a woman wearing a gorilla mask you know the black conservative. Who happens to be a friend and a colleague of mine. Who's the leader in the republican. Pack of gubernatorial candidates in california. Who was on the campaign trail this week and was assaulted by a woman wearing a monkey mask. You might not have heard of the story because the mainstream media was terrified to cover it and they didn't because that's how they roll.

Sorry go ahead. What do you think. Well you know when i was listening to what you're saying about the media and the non coverage like i said i just now here about this today and that's the problem that i'm having with the democratic party. It's it's even with your social media as they block anything that has to do with a republican sanders actually doing good Another big issue. I have their how donald trump got so much backlash on home. Or you talk to people and how he treated them but the democratic party is doing the same thing worse but it's praised. Exactly it gets it gets lifted up get supported it gets it gets validated and by not covering this. They're validating this by not denouncing her. The democrats support this there should be. I mean is gavin newsom gonna condemn one of his supporters wearing a monkey mask. Throw a saltine larry elder. No we won't hear a word from him and if we do. I'll be the first to apologize. Don't hold your breath.

Seemed a little irritated by this question. An isaac understood and said i mean of course of course they have names. So what's the problem. The gorilla waited a bit and then it said coupon following me. They walked for miles through the deep green jungle. Finally isak said. I'm really tired. How long have we got a walk. We're almost there said the gorilla and five minutes later five minutes later. They reached a huge coconut tree. Do the gorilla roared daisy. Climb down from the coconut tree and looked at isak. Amazed is all. I think we will be able to save your child now said the gorilla pointing at isak daisies is filled with tears hole. But how the gorilla pointed at isak and said here.

What the problem was the guerrilla turned to him. Doozy has a little son. A big brutal lion who happens to claim himself as the king of the jungle took him to his cave saying he was a naughty monkey. He wants to punish him for a few days but he wasn't even bothering him. One day the lion was sleeping in his cave when daisies little monkeys stopped by.

Hearing him cough woke him up and he got angry. Oh my goodness are you the super lion. Everyone talks about high. Always wanted to meet you. I'm glad that i finally came to meet such an incredible jungle. Animal like you said isak with a flattering voice. Hearing all of these good things about him. The lion became so happy wo think. Think little boy his said behind him daisy and the gorilla secretly went inside the cave. They hardly set the monkey kit free and left the cave cautiously with them. Being gone isak felt so relieved but he was now really nervous to leave this place without the lion. Finding out about the missing monkey kid. He thought for a second and then an idea came to him looking at the big lion. He said all missed a lion. You really have the most beautiful golden mane i've ever seen. The lion was looking very proud of himself. He loved compliments. Who will do have a wonderful main. An rury proud of it he smiled. Did you know said isak. I spotted a small pond.

What Sets Connected Living Apart in the Senior Living Space?
"One of the things that sets us apart in the senior living space is that we have really focused on sort of what I call as a three pillars is SaaS efficiency. I mean, you mentioned earlier, you know, there's a nursing shortage, but there's a general labor shortage, right? I was at a conference a couple of months ago and labor shortage was sort of the 900 pound gorilla that everyone was talking about. And we all heard the stats, right? A million nurses are not coming back. 3 million nurses aides are not coming back. So how do we use leverage technology and other forms of innovation to sort of fill that gap? And we're going to be talking about that. Obviously, the second pillar is occupancy, everyone concerned about occupancy coming out of the pandemic. How do we get people back? How do we change the narrative? So our platform is really help people get that back. And then last but not least, one of the things that sets us apart is that we have no reference to ageism in our platform. So literally, my 13 year old son can use this platform on my 85 year old debt to use the platform and it's that easy to use. So we do not reference ageism. We inside our mantra is to empowered by purpose and we feel that providing that independence purpose and morale is really key to seniors who are aging in any level of
Theres Always Room For More Than One Leader In A Market
"Interview last night with a guy called peter. Murray who is the ceo of the pf l. the professional fighters league now the pf l. claims to be the number two mixed martial arts business after the ufc and the comment that he made. When asked about you know considering even taking on the ufc because the ufc really owns the market. They are the number one player he said. Yeah but there's always room for more than one leader in the market. Sure they can only be one number one but how many markets do you really know where there's only one brand that represents that market. Not many you know. I mean the only one i can probably think of is maybe google i guess. Even something like amazon is amazon a giant. Yes do they rule the markets. I go to usually but are they multiple online shopping platforms. That brands. that succeed. Yeah there are so. I think the lesson for anyone who's thinking about taking on an industry incumbent which is the gorilla in the in the room is the big company it is possible to take on that guerrilla possible to go into that market because they can be multiple leaders in a market. Might not be easy to take on google. It might not be easy to take on amazon for example but certainly in most markets. I think there is always room for more than one leader.

But what did i do that here in berlin and so he buys some shelving units and frigerator he puts the refrigerator's enemies little balcony. And you just stopped stocking up. He's little pop to the first little warehouse of guerrillas came out today. What other challenges do accompanying like guerrilla face. What else should we be watching out for. There are many challenges corey. And i think that i guess the biggest thing that you know. He's he's a problem for this company. Is the pr issue of worker on problems on the ground in germany. This is something that a lot of people want actually have You know having directed with but they're they're These protests that are happening at some of the berlin warehouses that and this is a city where the company's cayenne but there is some very noisy employees to a trying to essentially unionize the workforce unlike a lot of companies that rely on. You know our workers like thinking about delivery companies in the. Us derail is high older workers and so they're all on staff. They're not ten thousand workers at this company and so an unruly group should be able to manage especially when it's a startup that has just been in existence. I attained months. I think that if i was to say anything this company that she's biggest issue for the moment it will be having to put in place. Hr protections put in place. You know stick pad put implies as things that much. More mature companies in the tech sector have had to deal with that he is having to do with not eighteen months off the united storing cans coke on his balcony.

"gorilla" Discussed on The Information's 411
"A moment around eighteen where not a week would go by without venture capital fundraising news by a scooter. Startup cities around the world saw scooters with different colors all parked on their streets founders had an easy time doing bc's with promises of fast revenue urban disruption there are parallels to a serpent crop up startups. Today they're instant food delivery startups. There's go puff. Guerrillas joker flink. They'll get your groceries jewel pods or baby food within ten fifteen twenty minutes and they're armed with buckets of venture capital but will the story go the same way for instant delivery at the did for scooters the money dry up we'll cities go undisrupted. This is the four one one. I'm cory weinberg on today's episode. I'll speak to my colleague. Mark distefano about reporting we have done on this topic and run instant delivery startup in particular guerrillas whose founder has been particularly audacious and polarizing. Then i'll talk. To steve levine. About why this is a crucial time for batteries and electric vehicles. Steve two started premium newsletter. On the topic. For the information it's called the electric and will focus on the technology to politics and sometimes dubious salesmanship in the age of electrification. Also a programming note. We are going to be taking the four hundred one podcast on hiatus it has been our pleasure to bring you stories from the information reporters over the past six years. This podcast has been around. I hope you'll consider subscribing to the information if you don't already a lot of work goes into our journalism and if you've enjoyed the podcast you'll enjoy our site in the meantime we'll be exploring new podcast an audio products and hope to bring them to you soon in your podcast feed marc fennell with me on the show. He's the information's european tech reporter based in london and mark. Tell me right now if he wanted some milk or a snack and you didn't want to go to the store. Your options look like in london. Right now will corridor germany options. And that's the problem that we're facing is that there are about ten apps that i could have a my fine that would get me a mazda or a dyke hard walk some jewel pods within about ten minutes naval quote. These names that are only like You know one of those movies. Batman movie starring adam west. You know how they always had those like incredibly when he hit someone. That'd be like ca- pals here's some of them the day job jiffy zap wheezy guerrillas. Get here so. We're both days bizarre names. And they've taken london at the moment over the course of the pandemic explain these businesses. A little bit to me like why is there so much money flowing into the sector right now. What are they all about. First of all these companies. They're offering say ten to twenty minutes delivery and what they do is is up as many film centers in highly dense areas. It's actually funny. I i went along to one of these dog. Perfomances the diet for one of the companies. Because they said you know why. Don't you just drop by. Get a vibe of of what. It's like kind of wins. It was a little bit backstreets of easily ten in north london which is sort of a hipster cool suburb of london and there in the back streets there was sort of like what looked like a bit of a commercial pa. It was weird. Because i woke is little warehouse and it basically just looked like really well stocks convenience store and you know scooters and electric electroshocks going in and out and so basically you've got a situation where the capital costs and announce small. Because what you do is go to lease the area you go. You're gonna be stuck everything and then you go to pay for delivery rod as as well on a wage. Then you've also got us up the whole tech part of the company. Which is the tech platform that you know. The employees are using to take the odors to the app. Everything it it's not a Business so that needs to be a lot of money coming in to for you to producing you know that little brown paper bag of biz in pods to the customer but the interesting thing is it has been some early signs that the model works and one of the companies that you yourself has been following very closely over. The last couple of years has met at work is go off which is at a philadelphia and another one. Actually out of turkey called get here so this was a company that was set up in istanbul and has been going for several years and these two companies i would say have shown. Vce investors that this is model can work like he could if you have style. You can turn dense areas of cities in to a network of like delivering food and groceries to people so the model is then works but to get the scout. You need a lot of money in a lot of investment. Right one of the ceo's of these companies with perhaps the most energy is a man by the name of cayenne suv bear who leads his company called guerrillas. It seems to be one of the leaders among the european startups that are taking on this business model. It raised money from coke to the big tech investor as well as ten cents. What's so special about guerrillas. Mark that they were the subject of a story. We did together a squeak. I think that one of the things that this company did with stand up for its aggressive ambition. You know it started in building eighteen months ago. it's already in london. it's suits. It's advertising alot the tube and the bus stations and it started off in new york in may so this is a company within the spice via that has sort of jumped around countries and has sane hundreds of millions of dollars flow into.

Good Lord Dad thought it would be cool to take his two year old little girl. Into the elephant habitat for a cool social media picture.

Well, this is a difficult moral ground for me if he had been childless, I always root for the animal in this scenario of the gorilla to tear him limb from limb the tiger to eat him the elephant to stomp him into the ground just because I don't want his genes in the gene pool.

Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo reopens to the public
"WGN, the fairly new director of the Lincoln Berg Zoo with the exciting news that the Lincoln Park Zoo is open. You need to make reservations, though, which is true for just about anywhere you go right now. But I'll tell you, you can find them and it's it's worth visiting. Can you go inside buildings or Outside on Lee. I note one point We've been to the zoo several times during this pandemic on and off, and it was only outside. But I has that changed. That has changed very recently. We were given some new guidelines operate under by the state and we are able to open our buildings at a limited capacity. We're being very methodical. We do We use science and everything that we do here at the zoo, and so we're Easing into opening buildings kind of a building at a time. So currently we have two buildings that were opening when we have staffing for it, and then we're going to be starting to open more buildings as we continue to move through the spring. So I love this text that I just received. I happen to know the answer Just a bit, But I'm sure you can do better than me cans. Kines. What was what was that? I said, will be all. Of course you get kids. Ooh! Animals Get Cove. It 19. Uh, yeah. Do animals can get Cupid 19. There's been a few zoo animals around the country that have gotten covert 19. We likely have not had any of the animals at Lincoln Park Zoo. Test positive for covert 19. But we, as all accredited zoos do around the country used personal protective equipment in order to ensure I know we're all familiar with face masks and other personal protective equipment. Because of our own personal use. We use that here at the zoo all of the time, especially with animals touches nonhuman primate center susceptible to many of the same diseases that we are, and it turns out the animals at The zoo's that have been diagnosed with covert 19 are, I think was that the San Diego Wildlife Park where some of the guerrillas were diagnosed lowland gorillas with covert 19? And also Malayan Tigers, and one of the species must been Asian lions at the Bronx Zoo. If I recall also a zoo in either Tennessee or Kentucky had a big cat that had it. But the good news is all of these animals have survived that have have have had it aspires. I know anyway, across the country, And as you say zoos are so careful anyway, particularly with nonhuman primates. Well, before anyone ever heard of covert 19 you you didn't want those great apes to get a cold. Which could be passed on because they can get it except sometimes it turns into a more serious respiratory disease in gorillas in particular, so it's for a very long time. Zoos have been very careful, correct. That is exactly right. We've been careful for a very long time with good reason. We want to make sure that they don't get any cold or flu or any bugs that we have the we've been protecting them by using our personal protective equipment for Decades now, so I said, going
Being a comedian during COVID-19
"You know, around this time last year, the Canadian comic Shawn cut hand was really trying to get his comedy career off the ground. He was going to a ton of open mikes. He was getting some paid gigs. He just performed a really successful set One night. I'm a single native in my thirties with no kids. Oh, I'm like a very white buffalo set that he recorded was about to send off to the just for last festival. You know, in hopes of performing there. We all know how that would turn out festivals and coveted Well, they don't really go together. So going from performing every week to now, having to step off the stage, Sean had to look to other outlets for his comedy. And one of those outlets strangely, and he'll tell you the story was writing his aunt's eulogy. I got to talk to Shawn cut hand. From Saskatoon. Hey, Sean, How are you? Hey, I'm pretty good. How are you? Good. How is this catch one tonight. Today has the house Saskatoon today. We're finally sitting above zero. So we're doing good. Yeah, you could take off the winter coat. Thank God. Hey. Yeah. Finally s o. I want to get an idea of how things were for you before Cove it last year. What was work like for you back then, just before covert. Um I actually went to Ottawa to be a talent associate further inspire words. And that was just just before things started getting like backstage at that award show. We're kind of getting in mumblings of like, Oh, we better not be hugging everyone. And then that finished and I came home to Saskatoon and the next week. That was gonna work down backstage after Juno's and it went from going backstage there the first day too. Don't touch anyone. Hand shakes aren't allowed no hugging. And then we did our first day of orientation. And then the next day, the Juno's were just canceled. I remember I was there, I would do you remember that day we all woke up thinking that the Jew knows we're gonna happen and everything was all right. And then the news just started pouring in. It was terrifying. Yeah, it's like way start like the whole stage set up the day before And then it's just like, Yeah, everything's done. What was your comedy life like Before the pandemic? It was going pretty good. Like I was getting consistent gigs. I had just finished the holiday season and I had done my first half hour at Yuck yucks, which was like a big milestone for me that I had been working on and then me and my buddy Danny night. We're running this open mic Sunday nights at The compromise, which is just a little hole in the law ball bar, and we kind of wood. Just it was like a gorilla open mic. I called it. We just showed up that like 6 30 set up a carioca machine and Didn't open mic at 7 30 on people in the room. Didn't really know what was going on. It's always a good way to do a performance. Sneakily. Yeah s O. I mentioned earlier that you said you did a bit of tape that you were going to send off just for laughs, Um, in hopes of getting to perform there. I want to hear a bit of that. Take a listen. If you just look at a yogurt parfait like if you just look at the cup, I swear it's got the answer to all of the statue in problem great there, you know, Because first you got the white yogurt taking up all the space. On then up top. You got the brown shattered and broken granola. But then in the middle, you got this sweet Barry is a reconciliation. E my guest, Sean, Better great comic from Saskatoon. What's it like to hear that back when you could do stand up? Oh, yeah, Like, like what I was saying, Like I was really happy with that performance like I'm actually gonna put it online for sale pretty soon. Because, yeah, I just want to share it around. It was a good recording and Didn't really get to get much use out of it. And just like, yeah, the crowd was Really amped up that night because I think they knew that they weren't going to be in public for a while. Yeah, And that was the same Sunday that the Jew nose was gonna be And the day after that performance was when lockdown happened. Wow, that's crazy. That's like hearing it, like hearing the Chernobyl or something like that. Yeah, Yeah, It's like a little time capsule. I think. Yeah, You know, I've been talking to a few comics in the past year, and it hasn't been easy to like. I feel like musicians have been able to do a live streams and actors have still been able to do some movies. I feel like this has been hard on stand up comics and really, you know, in a really interesting way, right? Yeah, like we really need audiences to develop our material and like even doing them on zoo Mike's with other comedians like it's just It's not the same. You know, because other comedians will Laugh at your stuff. Differently than an audience well and yeah, like I've been doing a lot of soon Mike's. I've been doing it with people from Chicago people from London, UK and Rome, Italy. Even it's been pretty wild on zoom right, because it's not the same. You don't get that that big collective laughter, right? No. Yeah, like a lot of people have their mikes muted and you're just looking to see like if they're reacting on this screen. Yeah. Don't let me go to you. But what's the story on this one? I actually heard that you did. You did stand up on your aunt's funeral for her eulogy. I'm about first off. I I know you guys were close. I'm so sorry for your loss. Thank you. What was she like? She was Here is an amazing person. She was the type of person that would always tell it like it is, you know, even with just the look of her eyes. She should. She could tell you tell you how it is, and she was She was big into taking a stand Me in her pro tested a couple of times together and she was a fire keeper on her reserve, Aqua, sassy Mohawk Nation. And yes. Oh, this, uh During covert She passed away due to cancer complications. And what was there with her name? Joyce Caskey. Sorry you were saying so She passed away and you had a service for Yeah, we went to Ontario and we had like a socially distance memorial. And it was kind of different. And like the morning of the memorial, my my dad just kind of just left the eulogy up to me and I was like, what really was kind of like Trying to get some some information that I could use from her childhood or something and and like that, I think people were being kind of agency. But the info and that's what I just kind of like. I had some jokes that I had practiced that involved her. And then I just added a couple stories into it. And I ended up making like a like a little eight minute. A performance that was like part stand up part just speaking from the heart. How did it I mean, This is a strange question for a funeral that how did it go over? Yeah, it actually like, went pretty good, like you know, because it went from like Everyone was in like a somber mood. And then I got up to talk, and I acted like I was gonna talk serious. But then I just cracked a joke at one of the what one of the attendees of the of the funeral and everyone. Was just laughing. And then I told some funny stories about my auntie and It's pretty great, that's beautiful. I mean, I think we think about stand up is something that happens that kind of smoky nightclubs. And that's that's all good. And we think about funerals is just things that are too sad, you know, and that's all good to you. It's lovely. It feels like you were able to It feels like you were able to bring some joy to your family when they needed it through your craft, right? Yeah, when someone passes away, and people are in that stage of grief there kind of focused on on how that person passed away and I think it's important in those times toe, Remember how they lived and the person that they were And cherish those moments, and she's a part of the reason you did stand up it all right? Yeah. She gave me a lot of confidence in my stuff because it was like years to go. My brother passed away when I was 22. He was 20. He was 23. Yeah, and I ended up having to do the eulogy. With my other brother for that one. And that one was more serious and really hard. But I remember after that, my auntie, she was the first one to come up to me, and she was Really proud of me, and she told me that She could picture me being a public speaker one day. And that that compliment like always stuck in my head. And I'm now like Look at me what I do now, so it really helped me a lot when when this is all over. You know, please God, when when this finally ends, and you're able to get up on stage and start doing comedy again. How do you think you have been changed by this year? To be honest, I think I've gained a lot of confidence this past year because a bunch of US comedians from Saskatoon Led by Dakota. He bear way started booking shows and people's backyard on the weekends. And so we would go into people's backyards and do a private show and sometimes, like I I did a show for six people in Martinsville and like to be stand in front of just six people like you really got a perform and not make things awkward and So I think those performances really helped me and I like to get in front of new audiences again. I'm kind of excited toe. Skills. When you picture and maybe this is a good way to close things off when you picture A year from now. What do you hope it looks like for you. I hope that I'm just consistently hosting an open Mike every Sunday again. That's what I would like to do. Yeah. Well, I hope it happens. I hope you never have to go on. Zoom ever again. Yeah, Sean, thanks so much for your time. Yeah. Thanks for having me. Shawn cut hand is a stand up comedian who is also part of the Web series Satirical group, the feather. He lives in Saskatoon.
"gorilla" Discussed on Grace and Peace Radio
"When we speak of faithfulness. We can't just talk about faithful to the believer. We have to talk about the faithfulness of god. Right we you know. We can't the two are just you know guerrilla glued together. They are the same well. Wouldn't you think part of that too is because the holy spirit needs to keep us. Mindful of there isn't one without the other because be holy is the lord is holy so we are to be faithful as the lord is faithful. Obviously we can't ever accomplished that depth and breadth of faithfulness because we're centers So we will mess up with that. But don't you think that can the holy spirit is on that keeps those two while gorilla glued but close to us so that we look at ourselves and saying okay. How faithful am i being to reward in whatever right and then also to. It's the idea that there's certainly we. We have a responsibility. In our sanctification we have a responsibility to fight in. We have a responsibility to repent to god and to others. You know we. There's human responsibility but there's also the fact that we can't do anything the only thing we can do on our own is sin That's it in want our own way all the time. Yeah i mean there's there's a there's a common grace that yeah we we're not all out there killing each other That there is some restraint in the world but that again is god only thing that we humanly can do is sin right and so everything else is is god. And so yeah. It's it's both obese

"gorilla" Discussed on Fascinate Pod
"Some unusual mammals like the platypus. The kidneys Koalas. All the species of Wallaby and many possum species to we have one possum here in North America. That's armor soupy but it's kind of a a lowly unappreciated creature resembles a large gray rat. And so it's not a real popular animal. But they have a lot of beautiful and varied species of possums there. I thought that marsupials only in Australia they they extend up into The islands north of there the island countries and we have Some possums here in the new world but very few interesting can we go back a little bit to Rwanda interested in how how Rwanda's changed. The is because when you originally went that I think it was one thousand nine hundred. Eighty something like Yes obviously a very different place. You said you've you've led trips back there. Have you noticed a lot of change? That will you know when I went back to Rwanda and I got to. Kigali was unrecognizable to me. I mean the population. Today I think is around a million close to a million people. It was about one hundred and thirty thousand people when I was there. They certainly had survived the the genocide I when I was there was very peaceful country. The there had been a genocide. It wasn't really covered by internationals news so So there wasn't a lot of just what you see. A couple of decades earlier like early sixties so late fifties early sixties and people. Were very quiet about it. I was obviously a horrific thing to but when I was there was a Rwanda was very peaceful. Kigali was a small town. You could walk the streets easily. The embassy is in this little single-story flat building. When I went back years later the new one was being built and had changed quite a bit. There were tall buildings everywhere but Even a few years after After Diane's murder at comeback with a film crew television crew out of Atlanta and Kigali was still pretty similar those five years later but when we got to the mountain entrance to the Virunga Park. The park divall calm. You could see that. There was a an improvement. In the income of the local economy. The homes were a little nicer. People were dressed a little better and the thirty dollars coming in through the organized tourism of guerrillas was already making a an impact in that area. I could see that so. That's what it was. It was guerrilla. It was the guerrilla tour it was bringing people in there were hotels. Were busy busier It was still a trickle of what would be to come now. There are thirty thousand people a year visiting the mountain gorillas in that region and there are big luxury hotels. Pull they're really lodges. Safari Lodges Nestled into The areas around the Virungas to accommodate this big influx of tourism and And the Diane Fossey Gorilla Foundation is building a ten million dollar facility right adjacent to the park for conservation education and awareness and museum and that that is Diana's rolling in her grave because I would say that the fund in her own name she would not approve of all. It's doing for people in the area and the way it has involved the local Rwandans. That's something else. She resisted unfortunately she just refused to sort of believe in the local people being able to take part in their own successes but she just would've been too difficult to work with on that but the people that have followed in her shoes have certainly embraced inclusiveness and and have made a quite a lot of changes in the area. The market for example in Ruin Gerry was called ruined Gary. The town that we get our. We'd get our groceries delivered from by the Porters and where the post office wasn't. There was a small hospital there that marketplace. When I went back it was all covered and enclosed. It used to. They used to be vulnerable to the rain. If it rained they had just kind of get under their tables and endure the downpour. Rwanda's renown to as a business success story since the genocide of the nineties. That happened in their recovery. Guerillas are reputed to be the number one source of revenues. For the country the number one source of revenue. Yup I've heard now. It's really great that we wanted to is a positive business success story because you hear about the genocide and there's not much mall against into well into the press. You said the Fussy Foundation what it's doing with the money. She wouldn't agree with is because she didn't like people or she didn't believe that people could be the answer off problem with people Well all of the above yet. I don't think she believed people could be the answer. Well she. She didn't think that the local Rwandans could take care of their own resources. The cared enough about the mountain gorillas in and really you know Muslim didn't care about the girls but there was a way to kind of bring about change to that. Now that's that's what the mountain gorilla project was working on it including Bill Weber would go out and do educational programming in the schools and different communities in Rwanda to explain to them about demystifying. The mountain gorillas making them aware about the mountain gorillas and also importance of the room volcanoes at that. That's what was needed really education and information needed to be disseminated among these communities to get them understand. And that's something the Diane. If you get suggest a tour she just would've shrugged it off and never have had any interest in approaching that especially because somebody else was already doing it. You know somebody who she didn't like was involved with. She really fought a really small battle between herself and the poachers that had attacked her guerrillas. And she just entrenched yourself into that battle with them and thought that was the solution but I think even in her own mind because she she said she believed the girls were just going to all be gone in a matter of years She was just going to ride them into oblivion she just Couldn't work collaboratively with people. She was her own worst enemy in that regard so because of that obviously a lot of people that she rubs the wrong way you mentioned about a murder and nineteen eighty five. It was for people who don't know this has never been solved. Do you have any inklings about it? Will while thought when you heard about all the theories of that emerged after her murder. I immediately thought of murder on the Orient Express in other story where the murder was committed and it turned out to be everybody. Anybody on the train was all plausible. Every every theory that came out it was the government could have been a student could have been a poetry could have been camp staff. She was so antagonistic toward anyone. That if if someone had murderous tendencies shoot abroad it right out in them. She was provoking everyone. It almost it had foretold itself self fulfilling prophecy that she would die in battle because She went down blazing. She was reputed to be Telling people quite blatantly that she had information about wildlife trafficking that would bring down a lot of people in the governor. Right all the way up to the president of Rwanda and she wasn't real secretive about that. She was quite a happy to tell people that she knew. All this inside information that right there put a target on you. Did you ever hear stories about that sort of thing happening? It was south commonplace in Rwanda at the time I don't know that it was come a place but it certainly certainly stories did swirl around about That I was in August the the planes park after Diane's death and I was at a lodge there a woman whose husband worked in the park system he was a Belgian expatriate and she was Belgian and she she said that's what everyone was saying in believed was what happened to her was that it was A contract murder because she was threatening to expose a lot of names and bragging about prior to her death so for the future of the dime Fussy Foundation and of the mountain dealers around the area. Are you hopeful? Are they gonNA continue improving the village new multi million pound facility being built and thirty thousand dollars a year to see them in Rwanda and Uganda neighboring. Uganda and Really the whole program serves as a model for all the countries in that region that have the mountain gorillas cross borders share borders with I think A mixed me optimistic because the numbers as soon as there was a census our report that there were increased numbers. There was almost right on the back of that another increase in the numbers. So I'm optimistic about the protection of the mountain gorillas in the existing habitat now. But what what I think really is critical to the population. Long-term is to regain some of that habitat that has been taken away from them and increase that and let the population expand in area In order to ensure better numbers for them in the future and build up be happening. Do you think it's happening a little bit by degree? The site worthy Fosse Fund is building. They are doing plantings to recreate Some of the forests to extend beyond its existing boundary and Pinault. At least one of the lodges that's Gone. Up is creating forest habitat as part of their part of their mission is to reforest around where that that lodges and really. It's a good idea businesswise. If you can get guerrillas right up close to your lodge like that. You will be in your best interest business wise to Create Gorilla forest around you. Josh love his. Yeah imagine being able to sit with your bottle of beer look off your Dacic Mountain Gorillas for me own private room. Sounds like a great holiday. Typically in these sorts of scenario there's once a population like gorillas starts improving. You might say the population or recovery of multiple wildlife species Much about that that happening as well. Well I think the golden monkey which is a species of monkey in the area that we rarely saw in fact. I never saw them when I was there and occasionally adhere of others that were at the lower altitudes would see them down in the bamboos on and I I know Peter that I worked with who visited that area on a regular basis. He occasionally would have a sighting. Belong male down there Now to have some tours that go out to see these monkeys and I think their their numbers have increased since then. I'm not sure about the forest elephants. They they were kind of sporadic in the forest there and years prior to my being there but while I was there happen to be fortunate enough to that they came through the area and stayed for quite a while and I I got quite a few good looks exciting moments among the forest elephants. But I haven't really heard reports on their populations I. I hope that they are getting more protection that their numbers will increase over time. But I haven't really heard much about them being in the area you'd hope sight there's less poachers less people working in the industry. You would expect. Maybe the elephants on being puch will. It was often believed that if they were They'd come up into the mountain areas because it was having heavy poaching down in the lower areas that they might have preferred. So maybe if they're not up in the wrong is they're they're happily Feeding in their lower areas than others a lot more protection over there on the Congo side than there used to be. But it's still not As great as it needs to be. Did you always keep like a diary all good notes of all of this because looking back on it from from nineteen eighty remembering all? The specifics might be quite difficult to find buck. Will you know people are kind of shocked at the level of detail? I have in the book and I didn't know that it was. It was remarkable to have to recall the things that I recalled but for one thing. I've learned that if there's a strong emotional impact associated with an event you have a memory of that event that that lasts much longer than other other extreme. Remember the smells tastes around says welcome also IT TURNS OUT. I do have a good memory at I. Didn't realize that either until people pointed that out to me. But I had letters that I wrote home and I kept these copious guerrilla notes that we required to make for Diane and I also had photos. They can look at some as a reconstructed. The story I from Memory A. With bolstered then with letters and my notes and my goal was to take the reader right along with me through this entire experience every every detail at every turn the scent the smell. The sites of everything that was that was part of my learning to write was bringing all the senses into it. But I could pull out a slide one of my old slides and I could say that so and so was wearing a blue card again and I could tell you what's so and so had on and it really takes the reader right into the. The scene and I enjoyed doing that. I enjoyed the creative element of creating a experience scene by scene. That's a real skill. Isn't that making yourself. Sit Down and work day by data to create this. It's a skill that I had to learn in fact when I conceived of this book you know I. I realized that when I first arrived in camp my first week in Camp I remember. The experience was so unusual especially with Diane how she behaved and I remember sitting down mcalinden going. Oh my God. This place should be a book. Somebody needs to write a book about this place and I wasn't really fully aware of Diane working on her own book until I heard her talking about it. And Sarin Nina picking away at her typewriter but I sat down. I didn't think of myself as being the person that would right but After I finished my master's during college I had to write this thesis and I wrote in a very journalistic way and when I was done with that I had this kind of momentum to write and I started writing magazine articles. I thought I could work for a local magazine. I could do some writing. And and then one day I was a set down to read this book the Hot Zone which is an I love nonfiction and journalism journalistic reports and I liked the way this true story about the Abullah virus familiar with the book the Hot Zone..

"But health concerns would force them to relinquish the role in summer of ninety seven and said of naming a replacement you guys decide to retire the role of president and then introduce ours and slaughter instead as the WWF Commissioner in August ninety seven so your last on air, president was gorilla monsoon, which is pretty cool. Little thing of note. What was going on with gorilla in summer of ninety seven when he needed to take a break, you know, win. Gorilla Sanjoy Morella passed away in a horrible car accident. Yeah. I guess we should touch on that, you know. I was going to save it for the because I thought you might give upset, but we'll just do it will. Guerillas son is referee Joey Morella who many of us. Remember, you know from the early day. I remember like yesterday in wrestlemainia six I don't know why that sticks out so much. But I think a lot of people don't know the the true nature of their relationship. Joey passed away in a car accident on the fourth of July nineteen ninety four and can't imagine how hard that must have been tell everybody about Joe in gorillas real life relationship, and then talk a little bit about the car accident. And how you heard about it and found out about it. And how company came to know about it. And most importantly, how it affected guerrilla? Well, Joey was gino's wife, marines, son and guerrilla adopted him after he Maureen were married so gorilla raise Joey as his son. They were you know, they were very close. Joey had. Great college baseball career could've gone pro and is fucked around and fucked up his shoulder and couldn't do it. So he he ended up in the wrestling end of things as referee. So. Now, we just done on the beach of think ocean city some like that or maybe I don't I really don't all remember as Shane McMahon. We we left television. We drove back to Connecticut. We got back into Connecticut about five o'clock in the morning. And I went home dropped we went to the office and cars, I went home by the time. I got home Shane called me. This is a Gus bad news. What's added? He says. Joey is gone. So Joey what what are you talking about ISIS? Joe Morelli is gone. Is in a car accident and we lost him. Just in Joey was the last person that we said goodbye to you know, the end of the night. Raise their just, you know, he's. Say your goodbyes and and. That's how I found out. It was. As shits. I. Called gorilla. All this is now I'm probably six clock in the morning. Now, call gorilla he answered. Was mass. Shall I love him? And you know, sorry. He. The God, you know, it just he was so young. I it was just so sad. Those are the dangers of the road. You know, it's. I just sucks, but that that moment that moment changed Gino going forward. There was such a big part of him that was missing going forward. And I think that a lot of the. The mental health. Of Bob Morella, a big piece of him died the day Joey died. I don't know that you know, that it just it just was missing. It was just it just was missing. At the funeral. He just didn't want us to leave. We all went over to the house afterwards and..

"Tom. Wrestling co host Bobby Heenan, what did you like better gorilla? I'm Bobby ORR gorilla and Jesse take grill and Bobby everyday twice on Sunday. They. Had a genuine love for one another Bobby so grey and monsoon it was it was easy in monsoon took that stereotypical baby. Face play by play role in Bobby took to that weasel. They were just great fodder for one another and nobody ever took anything personal. They never rehearsed a thing. It was just like, okay. What do you won't talk about? I don't know. What do you wanna talk about? And they would go. It was kind of like you. And I we don't talk about ship before we go on the air. We just go. That's the way that the grill and Bobby were I would give them a run sheet. I would give them ideas. Here's what we're going into what we're coming out of hit this hit that they figured out everything else. So as far as producing gorilla and Bobby day off is all had to do was format. I didn't really have to produce them that much. Let's talk a little bit about you know, what changed if anything between. Guerillas relationship with vents as time went on was he, you know, people often talk about the undertake your lie. He sort of the locker room later was guerrilla sort of. I don't know a Lieutenant or was he more one of the boys and did that ever change. Well, when Vince started his expansion guerrilla a lot of times was the first guy that he would send in if there was ever any thought of this may go awry or somebody may want to not do business or it could be iffy. You sent monsoon it was no nonsense. He would take care of whatever problem that there was and there would never really be an issue. So there was a huge trust factor there with Vincent gorilla in that. He was very comfortable with monsoon being that guy and being the face of the company a lot of times out on the road and monsoon didn't take shit from anybody. And I don't know that anybody ever ever would have even considered trying him either. But he had that reputation h just had that presence. You know, what I mean, you know, he walks into a room he owned the room. And there was a respect there that no. One. I never saw anybody disrespect on soon or be an asshole to him in in any way, shape or form. He just command that kind of respect with people, and he did it in a classy way by showing respect to people. Can you give me an example of guerrillas leadership? Well, I think that the. Boy the best way to do. It is when grill came down for Houston. The first time that I worked with guerrilla, okay grill. Vincent guerrilla down to check out. What we had there in Houston and give his report in his suggestions. So monsoon knew that I was the liaison and we worked together. But when it came time for even even Paul Bosch. When it came time for that show monsoon just took over in a way that nobody was going to dispute it Randy savage, one of the funniest things. Randy savage was working with honky tonk, man and monsoon is laying out the match and it wasn't well by blow. But he he says it goes, Iran. He goes, then you make your comeback. Why don't you hit him with a couple of drop kicks and savage is gonna happen. I don't drop kick a hit him with the no bones. Great. Randy. You do what you you know? But it was monsoon just took over. So you think about that?.

"Let's talk about the stock here. Because Meltzer would ROY Morello was eventually bought out by Vincent man, junior in hundred ninety two and attorney he got a ten year contract which gave him an announcing job in one and a half times. Preliminary money on every WB of house show, even though he'd never had to leave his home, which turned out to be a very lucrative deal. When the WWF was running close to one thousand shows per year, if you figure preliminary wrestlers in that era were doing two thousand dollars a week figure one and a half times that multiplied by three house shows tonight, and he realized that he had huge money years after selling the company when titan flourished, and it's eight heyday. Wow, that's a lot of money. Gorilla did berry berry. Well wrestling was berry berry good to him. Yeah. Mince, you know, little man asked him take care of a gorilla in Arne. Now, you know, they weren't staying home. They were they were on the road. They were working as road agents during that time and they worked hard, and they traveled an awful lot. But in here was the thing about traveling with gorilla monsoon lotta guys will go in to the town. And the boys are going to go on they're to want to go work out eat somewhere and get to the building. And then find the bar at night and drank all night and wake up the next morning. Go to the next town monsoon would look up. You didn't have internet. You didn't have all that crap. Then but monsoon would look into research on every city. He would go to what what were the hot spots. What were the things that made that city unique in as soon as guerrilla will get into town. He would go and investigate. He would. When he came to Houston. He went to in Houston at the time had this large pottery. Store in Pasadena, Texas, and as soon as grill gots down and called me and says, okay, come pick me out. We're going to go to this place in Pasadena, Texas. I want to get some pottery. And he walked around for two hours, just buying shit and had its clay pots. Sent back to New Jersey. He was crazy. But he go to San Diego monsoon went to SeaWorld. So he he enjoyed his time on the road made the most out of it. But I think after a while took its toll, and when he started doing a lot of the announcing and hosting the television shows for cable, that's when he started to slow down. But he still was going out and making the major towns and and doing a lot of footwork for Vince. Still an incredible amount of money in eighty five. He starts to announce and is doing it with Jesse Ventura. And this is probably the first time. I mean, I don't not maybe not..

"And in a weird way. I mean, he became the biggest icon in sports and entertainment. I mean, he's the absolute biggest than the idea that. Gorilla wants twirled around in an airplane span is pretty remarkable. They had a program you you're probably too young to remember remember wide world of sports. Yeah. Yeah. So the wide world of sports was on Saturday afternoon on ABC Howard Cosell was the sports sports guy for ABC. He did Monday night football. He did all the boxing events. You didn't have pay per view in the seventies. Very little closed-circuit even were few and far between. So when there were big boxing matches and Ali would defend these were all recorded to be shown on Saturday afternoon usually about three weeks after the fight. And that was appointment television. You ever you knew the outcome. But you wanted to see the fight. So this was another way you used ALI'S. Name and anything that Ali did got media got attention. So this was a way to promote the Okie fight. And if something got. Done Dolly that was big news. And it was reported everywhere in everybody knew about it. Well, because it's it's you know, I traditional I mean, even back, then even though a lot of people still believed a certain part of the audience, maybe thought wrestling was different. But a a, quote unquote, real athlete like Muhammad Ali would have everybody talking. I think everybody's gonna be talking after tonight come hell or high water because Tom Lawlor former UFC fighter is going to be right here in Atlanta wearing it out and Penelope Ford's their eighty Kingston, Simon grim. But I think the main event is Pentagon and Ray Phoenix taken on Christopher Daniels for kazarian, invest, a you. And a little prick in J F is there and hopefully Scorpio sky beat the shit out of him. Tickets are on sale now at a vent bright just look up come hell or high water. I wanna mention glacier. The fuck and the day is this real life fattening tonight in Atlanta. So you there in event Brian come hell or high water. Let's talk a little bit about. The guerrilla position. And how that position came to be and how why was name that. And what guerrillas role was back then because the position in its responsibilities of certainly a change as technology has changed in the business has changed. How did you hear that? I came to be and was that what it was called in Texas when you're breaking inner was always a New York phrase. It was in New York phrase. In mid south. It was the cue, man. I was Q man. A lotta times in Houston Paul would queue guys from ringside while he did commentary in mid south for television. I would sit ringside, and I would give the queues at ringside. So the grill position was a little bit different in New York in that. It was the last bastion. That the talent right before they went out. So the the curtains right there right before you went out, there was gorilla monsoon at the table telling you, okay? You got five minutes. Gone out. If you go over I'm going to kill you. If you look back on some old shows from the capitol wrestling days, you can actually see guerrilla when guys would go over there time walk to the ring. Slap. The Matt in yell at the guys with the stop watch around his neck, and you'd see gorilla monsoon in the middle of the match Yellen..
