"Gracie's job is to help greet customers. She leaves the cash register work to dad because alas, no thumbs. 58 80. So she's quite the attraction. Everybody knows this dog now. People come in this store just to see this dog. How'd she get her name, rob? We decided on Gracie. Because by the grace of God, she was found. She didn't freeze. It was 15° that day. And that's where this story has to go back a couple of chapters. Gracie was actually found the Monday before Christmas. Not found by rob, but by local mail carrier JJ Johnson. Hold up to one house. Open the mailbox. And I saw something move in the back of the mailbox. I wasn't quite sure then I put a piece of metal in and then face turned around and it was a puppy. He carefully extracted the shivering pup from the cold metal box and brought her inside his vehicle. I stopped what I was doing and drove the rest of four mountain looking at all the mailboxes to see how many I could find. In all JJ found 8 puppies in 8 different mailboxes that day. That was very surprised. And then I was sad because you could see him shaking in there and I was hoping they would say that long. We don't know the circumstances of how the puppies got into the mailboxes that day, but perhaps whoever did so, thought it was better than abandoning them unsheltered, temperatures were in the teens that particular afternoon, the mailman grabbed all 8 puppies and brought the octet back to the post office, and then made sure each went to a good home. This is the moment rob found Gracie. Instantly, as soon as I saw her, I said, if nobody else takes that dog, I want that dog. Yep, he got his Gracie and in the months since she's become a real celebrity in 9 mile falls, but that's nothing compared to what she's done for rob's heart. She's just been a godsend. Ryan Calvert.

"Talk Started in two jitsu. As in Rio de Janeiro. I was going around to all the different martial arts schools and working out every school. I went to the camp, the name Gracie Judges who kept popping up. I said I got to find out who they are. So I finally tracked him down in Rio and I met Mr Gracie the father. I met Hickson Gracie, who was the world champion at that time, So I asked him if I could work out with him. I was a black belt in judo, so I thought I had some pretty good grappling skills. Anyway, I got on the ground with Hickson Gracie, and it's like I've never had a lesson in my life. He played with me. Ha ha. That is Chuck Norris, uh, probably the most famous martial artists in the world. Talking about one of the best that ever was, And is Hicks and Gracie from the legendary Gracie family. He's got a brand new book out. Cold. Breathe Life inflow. Hexen. Welcome to the Brian Kilmeade Show. Brian. Thank you, my friend. Thanks for inviting is a pleasure to be with human brother. Yeah, so Hickson and I don't know if you remember, but I did. The first four UFC s with Jim Brown. When Korean was running the thing and and hoists was the champion had to fight three times and people would point to you and they say, See that guy over there He's the best in the world. But it's choices Time right now, and I've always wanted to watch you fight in person. I never had a chance to But now I feel like I did after reading your book. First off. Tell us Tell us everyone about your your fighting family. Yes, I born and raised in a traditionally finally martial arts family and my ankles. My father From the beginning of this century, they statue develop our Brazilian style fusion Japanese jujitsu. So was a life very exciting Life club. To see my parents like challenge draw their fighters and other side I was and become a Gracie is a part of a tradition which suits since we're born. You gotta give not a diaper soul You become part of you become part of, uh, traditional and you become a difference? Just, you know, in terms of what you need, how you see the ward How you should prepare yourself so My life story is a very interesting process of overcoming obstacles and and controlling emotions and and sacrifice training to become effective and and be the best one can be dropped as Yeah, you dropped at school at 13. To fight and teach. And your dad said, Yeah, I'll you know, I'm not going to. Yeah, I'm not going to. I'll keep your room and board but you have to earn your own keep And you did with your brother Korean. When did you realize that? Not only could you be a great fighter that you could be the greatest, Gracie Oh, my life was very much I always been very competitive and I start to compete with six years old. And, uh and all my life I was being tested on the mat. And the material in the age. I felt like I had the balance and the emotional control to to to excel in the sport, So I was Very much in love with this for the action, But after that, I started to teach a little bit and we start to understand. Uh, is much more involved because usually it is such a perfect uh, since or your art will make you feel like you start to a few angles and leverage and possibilities, which You could don't have otherwise, because my father integration was a very weak person. And in order to develop the efficiency, he started trying to changing good, powerful leverage. So once I start to capture that, that possibility, I start to also be very excited to teach and should and to bring people to our environment situation. So all this combined make me feel like Wasn't a movement to not only become a champion of the same Indians and putting my commitment 100%, right, but also weak, some kinda Understanding for people of how much martial arts can help them in their own lives in terms of emotional control, strategy, visualization and and so on to because martial arts is a metaphor for life. As you become a good martial artist, you know how to live your life and seek for happiness. So the idea of conquering is about anything you're looking for either by a car or a relationship or a business. So the relationship martial arts has with life. Becomes very interesting to me in terms of Neither are going to be a good fight that I make my students become good fighters or either I'm going to be a good fighter and become and make my students become good people. So for me, it's a pleasure to be involved with use it no matter if it's for a fresh efficiency. All for empowerment. And and Hicks and I watched you with Joe Rogan, obviously, uh, you know, he knows martial arts. He's my He's a martial artist, and he's a commentator and UFC has got the best podcast in the country. Um, and you talked about breathing the one thing I think people should listen to right now. You're not talking about making the next great champion. Whatever you're doing. This will make you better. And that became clear in this book. Uh and I'm going to bring you to an excerpt of it. You say about winning and losing. He said. What I remember, uh said, because when you were six years old, you were dying to fight and there was no division for you. You say because I was six. There was no division, so my dad put me in the bracket with older kids. Right now, before I was about to step into the mat to fight, he said Hickson. If you lose this fight, I give you two gifts. If you win, I give you one what I realized that my dad wouldn't be upset. If I lost the pressure melted away. I lost the match. But I didn't feel bad because my dad wasn't mad. So that do to you is so important for people listening right now. It is not all about winning. It's about competing, right. It's about having the courage to to compete. Yes, And sometimes you know, it's not even about the courage is about the the the capacity you have. To to surrender, you know, because sometimes you don't have the ability to computer to fight. But in another aspects, if you understand better the situation if you can evolved To a better understanding you can accept. You can be spiritually using hope for patients or all these realization. So martial arts give you the tools for you to seek for happiness and and in one point in my life for me was Fighting for women. At this moment in my life is winning without a fight. Because, you know, even though you don't have the physicality or the idea to to to to confront something, right, you always have different ways to seek for happiness and and and finding strategies. True. To cope with the situation where you You. You, you win in a way, you know, because you do not feel like you're losing, but you just Creating a better situation for for victory. And in a complex way got hit, You said, for a young age was drilled into you. There was no shame in losing, but there was no shit but there was shame in quitting or not fighting. So you know the one thing people should understand. I'm talking to a guy who might be the best fighter ever, Uh, 22, and he could take on any discipline and conquer it because he could see weaknesses and everybody, but he was willing to put himself on the line. But every day was a struggle in your family. How big was your family? How often were you guys? Rolling around on the mat. How often were you guys sparring as kids? Was a daily thing you know, for us going to the mat or engage ourselves on the car theft and play the engagement was a very natural recreational thing was not violent was not bloody was not, you know, scary was something which, like true popular lions, playing around and such by two each other's neck just too few to grips and stuff, So we We play with each other, and the older ones help the youngest ones to to develop the maneuvers and the in their village to that inquiry, reflexes and ability to fight so He's always been different because.

You interviewed some people that own advertising agencies barber proctor was one out of chicago And named some other there are few will lack agencies where those black agencies always relegated to multicultural marketing myself. And another professor. Man jason chambers. Who's at the university of illinois Are the two primary academics that look at the the biographies the backgrounds of these on black advertising entrepreneurs so my book focuses on the women robert progress. You mention carol. Who's from michigan joel martin. Who was the first black woman. Open it an agency. In new york city williams who the first black creative person inducted into the advertising hall fan buying so those are my those. There's a chapter dedicated to each woman. But i also talk about other women in the business And more of a collective sense in just the kinds of challenges that they have had to confront and overcome some of their stories are triumphant. You know summer quite tragic. You know carolyn jones she. She had breast cancer and she had a second bout of it which Which which which sucker out of here and if you look at some of the issues some of the health issues that some of them had and whatnot. It may have been related to some of the stress in that sphere and whatnot. But these were some dynamic. Go getting women highly professional and in addition to my book And jason's book which is madison avenue and the color line where he focuses more on the males in the business between those these icons pioneers We're hoping to do some sort of a documentary or a way to bring these lives to the grain instead of just imprint. I i hate to say it. People don't like to read books anymore and they wanted tweet and they want to do all these little bursts of information but to kind of dig deeper in look at what happened. We have to tell our stories. Look at the stories surrounding the tulsa. Oklahoma massacre the devastation of black wall street. Who's done tell these stores so it's important for us to tell our stories to contribute to and run these narratives. This is we don't do. This is a book here. Chicken soup or the so.

"Of my co-authors did that what i'm interested in is. What is the narrative that comes out of that so what led to the book was when i looked at there was a book by steven fox called the mir makers and there was a passage in that book. That always irritated me in that. He mentioned how had gone into the advertising business as entrepreneurs in the late sixties early seventies and they hit kind of painted themselves into this ethnic corner. And i thought to myself i said well what were they allow to do in that space and so that led me to do some research. When i looked at how black advertising agencies developed who some of the key players were right. what kinds of things they had to deal with. When you think about advertising agencies the only way agency to survive as you gotta have clients and the clients that have the resources are majority white corporations for the most part. Look at how these agencies developed they were developed under. I don't wanna make this an academic theory thing but under what we call an economic d to meaning that they were directed into certain areas of the business which at that time was pretty much exclusively the black consumer market so they will be brought in by corporate marketers to handle the pitches directed at black consumes. And that still happens to this day. Even if you know the show black ish the leads. The i think the first episode of blackish. It shows andre johnson excitedly waiting for this promotion. Because he's going to become the vp at this majority wine agency. But when they name his position he is the vp of urban marketing. And he's sort of taken aback that he wanted to just be the vp of marketing mark. You have the skill set to do so now fast forward. I think they're in the last season of that shell and he is now considering leaving and starting his own agency because the the structure and the system will not allow him to break out of that ethnic bots if he will Unless he does something pretty dramatic and that's kind of. I think we're the series is left off for this new season to start up in the fall. So we'll see what happens but that same dilemma. That same economic detour is being playing out in today's marketplace much. Like what you about mirroring right. So the client is white and they want to have their person on the agency side white too. So how can you ever break out of that box. If you want to do what you said that. The book called mirroring. They want to mirror that. It's it's it's it's not going to happen because there's no way that i will ever be white so so you gotta figure out how to dig deeper into like figuring out like this is stemming. Racism basically is systemic racism. And and. i go to this. Because i talk about this every single week on. Get out there get known podcasts. I talk about the importance of black media and why that's important for our own narrative Rate whether it's cathy hughes and what she's done which is amazing whether it is. The black newspapers was just an mba. I talk about The whole thing about we have to support black me. I have my own magazine cost speakers magazine. We have to own our own media. This podcast is definitely on your own media my colleagues red black and green and make. I'm not apologetic about being black.

"In the seventies because it was started because they were really trying to stand up for lack media black journalists trying to get black people in the media so forty plus years later. And you're broken education and you've been encouraging the black students. Obviously coming your. Your ear classrooms to go into this field. Are there more now than it was then do. Is there still a need for in a bj and the different organizations and is what i'm trying to say is like we did this in forty years later there will be. Some progress is their progress. Or do you see a turning back in. There has been progress but there absolutely is a continued need. I mean you're seeing most recently this past year you know. New people announced as the The head of cbs news black moment. You're hearing new people now but it's more than that is sort of like what madam vice president kamala harris it but i will not be the last and so we have to get past the first not being the twenty first century and the year. Twenty twenty one still saying this is the first the stuff that we have to make sure we push past. Can't we can't sit back and be okay with that. We have to keep encouraging people and making sure people who prepare judy and where she's at and continue to push young people tell them are resources networking in the same thing. We do here because it's needed we. I am someone. I thought i position. So i could show my first amendment plaque. This is on my office. I am a true believer that we need to make sure voices are always there. We need to understand the perspectives in lived experiences of everyone and particularly why people in this country and so we have to tell you. People don't stop. We have to keep pushing them. We have to keep appeared. Wanted things to and duty went to howard and then gracie you are the perfect zine at empower but i remember when i was at wayne state. Have you seen white urban sprawl.

Pioneering african american women in the advertising business biographies of mad black women and that came out in two thousand seventeen. So ladies you all have really would've thought that forty plus years that you will be phd's in marketing and communications during the darn thing and how both of you guys both have that connection to. So let me ask the question. First to dr gracie. How did you even imagine this was to happen. Your curriculum mechanic was what was in business administration but when i left casts ice which michigan state and majored in journalism. And i never changed. That's it i remember. You were a very very It's like you've loss of with that. And i think one of the mentors you met. I can't remember the african american of gentleman's name but it was the day we didn't have computers and we had typewriters. So you know aging ourselves. You wrote him a letter are we. Met him and i think at one of the the halls or something like that and you wrote him a letter and he gave you some advice because you wanted to know how to break into journalists. Do you remember the gentleman's name he's passed and you're gonna make an escape me. I know you're talking about it. It's gonna escape me now but will come along the way. One of the pioneers was one of many people who were so gracious. And even judy will tell you. Now that we have to return the favor of hit four though to reach out to people and encouraged to yes. Yes and so duty. When i remember when you graduated from school you came back to detroit and you work in advertising and you were working in a wbz donor. Believe at the time I worked through. Wb donor i work for. What then was bigger apps cunningham and cleven jer. That was at one. After i left it was acquired by the benito what's interesting is. This is kind of a full circle moment for me because not only are we. We are all high school classmates. But when i was an undergrad howard. I was in school. Communications watt and at one point. I was a journalism minor. But i was trying to major minor in the same school. Then they told me. I had to pick something else. So my my major was basically a blend of communications and business. I ended up going into academia in the business school. So but the funny thing is that. I'm heavily reliant on the communications background because i helped launch a program in two thousand six in integrated marketing communications. I am c. Which is marketing which is in business. Plus communications like in august sorta came together. So yup that is that thing each one of you guys gracie. She hasn't step out for saying wanted things busy. Busy professors right is there.

Represent my family so for me. Transcending my buddy my win my defeat my issue about on our tradition family respect so all those company up in a way for me to save. I don't care what's gonna happen. I just wanna go that and do it. And and that's wasn't my my all the fiftieth normal and has that all the time. Yup so it was like you had a greater purpose that transcended the fear became more important than almost like an overriding emotion. That was more important and powerful than the actual fear itself that emotion. That's awesome and did you actually enjoy fighting. Did you enjoy going out and doing even street fights and all these incredible things that you did the years did you enjoy it. Is it fun Yes or no. I wasn't enjoying in opposition. Choose to support my community. My friends you know. I was always like i knew i have special powers and you would fight so i was able to be looking for the to represent what i believe was more like for honored tradition respect and on because i could not see somebody something as a coward and don't do nothing so i was in my mind was a superman trying to make life good around me and if i see somebody complaining bowl just be you okay. That's a little bit. So i was just using my abilities to keep things the way i feel like. What's proper and Every time i fought. I fought even to represent the families represented style or should be able to make sure something was going wrong in my is able to fix some guy who makes the power. We've some smaller guy. Some bouillon on the surface. So i try to be the bully. Thinks like that which. I feel like the weekend one's once what kinda mo- side of the challenge coming to me and say. Hey thank you. But i really so i feel good about being supported of the week in that sense because she she's making me powerful but i don't feel like i was powerful enough so when i got a guy who thinks he's a bully and i beat him up make me feel like i make good mission for him to get beat. The other ones proves we have effectiveness to beat people bigger than us so was just leaving in heaven but the actual fighting itself. You didn't particularly enjoy like beating somebody up unless there was going to say some guy bumped into you on the street you wouldn't like automatically wanna fight him because there was no real purpose behind right of course. When day was a funny story. I was leaving the after the training. We fly into stuff so we have our boards in the car and gwen surfing to the jammies is on the real confusion stuff and then are we talking. He's talking if i cut off some facts dryland cut off. You make a mistake and hard to the going. My called me names. And i look at him. Me doesn't say brother like this and then the commission abuse and how you the guy call me. That's how you could apologize for this guy said heuer. We going surf right now. We training the whole day. You think i have to prove myself. My beating facts driver bald fat guy. Who's just you know. He's no recess on that. Let let him get beat by home. Cd's on problems man. I i don't have to be. He's not wrong. I mean he's just pissed and that's up to date highly talk to maybe the biggest spiracy has said. Then you thought to me so much on day because because in a small friend than me and he's much more challenge in a daily basis than me because people look at me. They don't wanna problems if they look at her and say that outta here so they always been respected. He always already swipe anytime you know because he was guy very very comfortable about his body and he's a fact of where he was small frame so people don't respect him and he upset because and that vision best who him to that moment make him feel like much more open is to say. I don't have to put myself just beat this guy you know and give a greedy formation. I i would say a value and you mentioned that as his perspective of how how we should approach defense be defensive interest rates and how forgiving giving us he can be if you think otherwise so was a very interesting situation yeah. I'm sure he's pretty surprised at a new all-time great fighter just letting this taxi guy get away with saying all those things but it just shows you know the maturity and sort of evolution. I'm sure that you had over the years just you. When you know you can defeat somebody easily. It's like you know what's the point in doing that if you don't have to. And then also reminds me of when they initially do the. Us's back in the day early. Nineteen ninety two ninety three. They actually picked. I believe your brother hoisted instead of you because he was also a smaller statue statute guy what was he. Probably six feet is real skinny. Like one hundred and fifty five hundred sixty pounds fifteen pounds value than me an but. That's not exactly the real reason why did that. He did that because he's have control the voice as a as a mentor as professor like almost over there Not only the rather but like father for a completely financial in manageable voice over need i was wondering defendant was more like and he was not sure what i'm gonna do.

"gracie" Discussed on Making Sense with Sam Harris
"Welcome to the making podcast. This is sam harris. Okay we'll today's yet another. Psa this time on the topic of police violence and the relevance of jujitsu training to mitigating. Some of the problems there too damn speaking with henner gracie and henner. If you don't recognize the name is a third generation member of the legendary gracie family that is credited with creating brazilian jujitsu in large measure. And passing it down through now. Three generations where hefner and his brother here on our some of the best teachers on the planet and they focused in recent years on teaching police officers the skills. They need to apprehend in control suspects without significantly injuring them. Bryant jitsu as you'll hear is uniquely good for this and the train is being made available to police departments. All over the country and henin here runner at the forefront of this the not only people doing it but they are amazingly effective at what they do. As you'll hear this conversation is a true. Psa and almost an infomercial for this kind of training. And it's not an accident weird a moment now in the public perception of policing that is nothing short of calamitous as i record this we're getting to the end of the derek chauvin trial. It's of course not yet clear what the verdict will be there. As you'll hear henner. And i are both quite clear in leaving aside. The chauvin case for the purposes of today's discussion is certainly not an example of pervasive misunderstanding of police procedure. I think anyone who saw the killing of george floyd recognized that We were witnessing a shocking instance of police misconduct and just what level a jury will soon decide. But for instance in recent days. Since i recorded this conversation with hanner. There's been the case of dante right. A motorist who was shot and killed by police officer in minnesota. And if you've seen the video it's about as clear as.

Remember how they talked you into doing that? Well, I don't think they had to talk their way air talk him into doing and I'm sure he was a willing participant by the hands on the back of it.

Why Growth at Grayscale Exploded in the Last Quarter
"It's recently quarterly report gray scale announced record inflows. Tell us about that. So on a quarter, we'd be says, our team puts out a report that looks back at investment activity across the gray scale family of products over that most recent quarter in we try and break down for the investment community which products have inflows, which products more popular than others, what the breakdown is different types of investors any other trends that we're seeing amongst our investor base. and. Though regularity, these reports have really allowed them to become almost the defacto sentiment indicator for investment in the days in in two this year, we raised over nine hundred, million dollars in just that second quarter, and that was on the back of raising over half a billion dollars in Q. One this year. So we're really seeing influence into the gray scale products at a record pace. And that's almost double. What do you think accounts for the massive increase in interest? I think that the macro environment is causing a lot of investors to focus on Crypto in a way that perhaps had before I think one of the most topical things that investors are talking to us about is unlimited quantitative easing and as they look at how much the Fed and other governmental bodies are printing, they're really starting to drill into the verifiable scarcity of assets like get. Coin and when you think about that very important attribute that bitcoin has and then you combine it with bitcoins uncoordinated nature and it's not just bitcoin. Right? It's other digital currencies as well. Investors are starting to appreciate that there is a new in uncoordinated return that they can maybe get from having exposure to digital currencies, and now the timers in a lot of investors digging on the space. and. So when you talk about the quantitative easing that does, of course, immediately bring to mind bitcoin because of the cap on its supply and when you started your answer, you were talking primarily in Bitcoin or about bitcoin but I wondered how the interest in the currencies was spread out. Is it? Eighty percent in Bitcoin or you know what are you seeing in terms of the interest across the various crypto sense? So Greasy now has ten different investment products and a great deal bitcoin trust is our flagship product. It's been around the longest. It's our largest no question about it We've seen a market uptaken interest across the other products. So in particular, I'd highlight in cute too. We saw a lot of interest in the gray scale at theory and trust. In really seeing more investment really coming in across the board and I believe now of our returning institutional investors, we now see over eighty percent of them having now invested in more than one race cal product meaning they. Now you have exposure to more than one digital currency and it's interesting to think about that audience because for many of them, Bitcoin is their first foray. It's the place that they're most comfortable with it done the most research on typically it's what gets them comfortable and gets them to give their telling the space, and we're now releasing a growing trend of investors not just wanting acquainting exposure, but they actually see diversification benefits of having more than one crypto currency exposure in their portfolio. And when you said that if him was another one of the assets that was gaining a lot of interest what's driving that because the theorem does not have a cap on its supply. So I was curious to know why they were focusing on that out of all the other non bitcoin assets. Well. I think BIRLA investors at theory like coin has a lot of staying power on it to like acquaintance overcome a lot of adversity and I think investors are starting to drill into some of the east cases around the theory. powering defy and a lot of other new applications which theory is really targeted towards where I think for more investors thinking about Bitcoin, they're really thinking about it more along the lines of digital gold or a digital store of value. And who is coming to you now, are you seeing interest from new groups and what types of investors are coming to gray scale? We'll still gracie obeys assets primarily from institutional investors. So we deal primarily with accredited investors. So it does include a lot of high net worth individuals and. Family Office is financial advisers but believe the vast majority of the actual dollars that we're getting are coming from the hedge funds on and then other types of institutions, endowments, and pensions, and I think one of the most things we actually broke this out in some reports. This year is that the allocations aren't coming from any one kind investor I. Think you know for a lot of folks bitcoin digital currency investing its momentum traders or it's for funds that really only are experienced in investing in technology or In. Venture capital things that are really on the riskiest end of the spectrum in Farrah's when we look at the actual mandates of our investors, it's everyone from global macro funds to value funds to risk arbitrage funds. Any every single kind of investor mandate is represented in the gray scale investor bays, which I think the takeaway is. Digital currency investing is certainly not for everyone is risky too early days you know a lot of investors need to have a patient in kind of medium term horizon for their investment, but it does that mean that it's something that everyone should at least be considering and we're already seeing empirical data that it's making its way into the portfolios of investors of all different kinds of mandates.
Not feeling sick, man tests positive for COVID-19 only after contact tracing
"People find contact tracing to be an invasion of their privacy. McComas Denise Whitaker tells us how it worked out Well for one man. There are certainly a lot of criticisms of contact tracing, but Peter Rosen Burger tells me He would not even have gone to get tested. Had it not been for that phone call he received from a contact Tracer. I first introduced you to Rosenberg er back in April, when he was really working hard to avoid getting covert 19 from his wife, Gracie.

He nursed her through covert 19 which hit greasy really hard, And now that he's got it, he tells me he wouldn't have even known it had it not been for that call from a nurse, telling him he had been in contact with someone who tested positive would not go to the doctor. For what I feel right now. If I didn't know that I had Cove in 19 and I've got all the symptoms of Ah, you know, bad case of being out in the barn moving hay around.

My Rare Disease Does Not Define Me
"I'm joined today by singer, songwriter and patient advocate, Gracie van brunt formerly based in Los Angeles. Gracie moved back to the Boston area before the Kovic pandemic. She's the recipient of the two thousand thirteen rare champions of hope patient advocacy. Award. From the nonprofit advocacy group global jeans at age two, she was diagnosed with a rare disease that I'm going to let her pronounce, and even before the pandemic, she was an expert at social distancing. She is here to share her story and her art welcome Gracie Hey. Thank you so much for having me what an amazing introduction. Thank you so much for being here. We're I'm really excited. This is gonNA. Be Fun. Yes, I'm so. Yeah you too. All right. So can you tell me about your disease and how is it pronounced? Yes. So it's called Schwartzman. Diamond. Syndrome. Like a Walkman, but just with an ass and then I'm in just like a like a diamond gem and then syndrome and it is a very rare disease that only affects I think around like five thousand people in the whole world how and I was diagnosed when I was two and now I'm twenty five. So it's a genetic chronic disease that is currently incurable. We are working on a cure for it, which hopefully can be developed soon, it is also life threatening. So the main aspect of the disease is your bone marrow and a lot. Lot of patients with SDS as we like to abbreviate, it have bone marrow issues where their bone marrow fails and We don't have enough blood counts really like we don't have enough platelets, not enough white cells and not enough red cells, which basically makes up your immune system So we get sick a lot quicker than a normal person would and we also a lot more prone to getting leukemia, which is a blood related cancer, and so the point of getting a bone marrow transplant would be to eliminate that risk. Let's start to talk about this and dig in Can you tell me about your song run ron run because I'm kind of obsessed. It's pretty great. Thank you. Run run run is a song that I wrote about my disease and having to live with it and confronted every day and The first line is my disease does not define me, but recently it's all I. can see and that is because three years ago in twenty seventeen, I got like a huge Epstein Barr virus. I just got really sick from having the Epstein Barr virus, which kind of like was the catalyst to me getting my heart transplant to use later, and so it's kind of just about having to actually confront my disease head on. which is something I haven't had to do for a long time because you know growing up after all of my hospital stints. I got gradually better and I was able to kind of dislike, put my disease into a little box and leave it there and On. A kind of live my life as a normal person. A. and. So when I got this Epstein, Barr in two, thousand, seventeen, it was a huge huge hit to my system. I was extremely sick for a few months and that ultimately led to me having to get a transplant but. Up, until then, I. You know I could be a normal teenager like do normal activities and. not really have to put a lot of emphasis on my body or my health. But because of this catalyst I'll say Really really. Forced me to take my disease out of that little box. I had it in and really really face it. So the chorus goes. To run run run just like I've always done and I leave it alone. But I, have nowhere else to go which is me really just like having to confront the fact that you know I'm still sick I will never be a normal bio typical person and I have to do this transplant for like to better my own quality of life and Just. Focus on. My health more than anything. So that's pretty much what it's about, and then like a little fun fact is. I had already written it before I got the news about my bone marrow transplant. So I had my doctor's appointment on December twenty, fourth two, thousand eighteen, which is like Yay, Christmas, time such great news. But so I had my doctor's appointment, and I already had like a little demo of this song done because Louis is my boyfriend and he's a wonderful producer and we had already been working on Um songs for my upcoming EP and then we'd already done this one. So the first thing I did when I came home was I actually just listened to this song to make me feel better. Because, it's just like it was just the best remedy for me because it is exactly how I felt in this. Little compact. Song.

Focus on. My health more than anything. So that's pretty much what it's about, and then like a little fun fact is. I had already written it before I got the news about my bone marrow transplant. So I had my doctor's appointment on December twenty, fourth two, thousand eighteen, which is like Yay, Christmas, time such great news. But so I had my doctor's appointment, and I already had like a little demo of this song done because Louis is my boyfriend and he's a wonderful producer and we had already been working on Um songs for my upcoming EP and then we'd already done this one. So the first thing I did when I came home was I actually just listened to this song to make me feel better.

Summer Wildflowers With Carol Gracie
"I asked when we spoke I. Don't know a few years back upon the publication of your book spring wildflowers of the Northeast The sub pad on the cover of the new book. summer book as on the old one, says unnatural history and I'd like to know what that means. Tell people what that means. Well. It means looking beyond just the beauty of the flowers and learning about how they fit into the environment. And what their importance is to insects or birds or other animals? And sometimes to other plants as well. So, I like people to know how these plants work in the environment. What their what their roles are. You encourage us. I think in the tax in the preface of the book you encourage us when we're looking at Alzheimer's to almost act as a as a burder does when watching birds yeah. Yeah I do because it's not just checking off that you've seen a Canada Lily for example. Or you've seen. Have Sparrow. It's really observing what organism is doing. And there are still things to be learned about even our local wildflowers. That, have not been observed because people just think well, they're common. They've been here forever. Anything that is known about the must be must be written already. But yet if you just take the time and patience to sit there and watch, you could discover something new. And you'll discover something interesting. Fit Your your book in the title and Zeroes in on the northeast, but we should say where that is because it's not a small area, the northeast in terms of ripe. Thank you for doing that. I'm using the concept that was used in gleason and Cronquist, which is the manual for vascular plants of the Northeast and his concept of the north. East goes from southern Canada. Down along more or less than Mississippi River down to. Northern Missouri and across into Kentucky. And So it's a big area I've. Had People say oh I'm from Virginia I'm I'm sorry? I can't buy that book because it doesn't have any of my plants in. But these plans are awesome. Ranging and many of them are in the Midwest and in the. Northern part of the south as well. so for example one. That's in the book. I don't know how you managed to choose I. Mean because there's a lot of plants out there in that regional area that are bloom in the summer from early. To late. But you. You picked A. How many are there in the bucket their third year? Omni Arthur There are more there about thirty five, I, think. More than that, because in some chapters I cover many more than one species. Of Related Species for instance. Right, so for instance you chose Common Milkweed, and there are other milkweed Zvi chose common milkweed, and that is over a far wider range than what we just talked about. Right and that goes even beyond the. Northeast Important! For many reasons, I'm sure all of your listeners are familiar with the milkweed monarch story, but it has many other interactions with other insects in particular. Right make it fascinating to me. So. Let's talk a little bit about that. The species is so it's a sleepiest. Dhia Syria which may sound surprising because it indicates that it comes from Syria. But in fact, that goes back to a mistake that was made back in the sixteen hundreds. When this plant was first brought back to European. To describe. And they it as being the same as a plant that had been discovered in Syria. And thus they lump it into that same species, which is opossums, Syriac Him And, when lineas realized that it was a different. Genus that it was far different from a possum. He'd put it into a different genus asleep, but by the rules of botanical nomenclature he had to keep the the second part of the name, the specific epithet.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo says New York has endured ‘21 days of hell’
"But here's a quote from Cuomo in a play the audio I don't read too because I'm looking at it I think it's really interesting he says we're back to where we were twenty one days ago twenty one days of hell but here we are no I I think that's interesting because there's a lot of information out there we talked about it last week and if you missed the episode last week of this coronavirus special you can check it out at W. A. B. C. radio dot com and all of the core of our specials are listed there but we talked about how M. I. T. has suggested that the hot spots in New York City may be directly related to the subway system and I find that interesting because when you go to I don't put a target they let X. amount of people into the store most stores are leading X. amount of people into a store and if they hit that that number you got to wait outside while you're inside six feet apart six feet apart six feet apart right okay but they didn't do that in a subway now you had the mayor who had police you have Cuomo as MTA police of Cuomo who's in charge of the subway system do you think for a second that they could have said let's put some offices they're saying all right we're only letting X. amount of people in on to the platform for the next coming train all right U. ten U. twenty U. hundred whoever it is you guys go and make sure you stay six feet apart and then wait for the next group all right that's good the same way they do it when I want to go by you know Michael your products at the at the Walmart or the target even though they had does it so my thought is why couldn't these guys these geniuses in in Gracie mansion and here in the city what why could they not figure this out
Why iLes New Album, Almadura, Is Both Departure and Evolution from Calle 13
"That was master from Elise Laura for the Puerto Rican singer and songwriter. Music has long been a family affair as a teen. Her brothers recruited her to become a member of guide. The dossier together they've won. Three grammys and twenty-one Latin grammys away has spent the past few years reintroducing herself as a solo artist and along with resident her brother and bad bunny co and performed a few lundahl. Scoot Yose the song that became the anthem. Puerto Rico's protests. Listening to Alamo Laura. It is clear that La like the island. She loves is recognizing the dots of her own strength. Welcome to New York City. Thank you good to see you and your hotel room. Thank you for making this work. I appreciate your your released. A motor prior to the protests. Ousting the governor your lyrics I saw in countless protest signs. My friend ANA lives on the island and she calls among Laura a premonition. Ooh I heard that little Very Super Gracie for me. Because maybe the only thing I can think of is like when you wish something so bad and then suddenly becomes reality. I think that might be what happened. Because I'm I've always had this frustration. Not only about a colonial status and how we see things but the thing that froze therese me the most is when I I start seeing the people thinking that they're not enough that they are not a capable of doing anything that we need dependency and for me. That's not part of our essence and I can see so much more From the three. Can People that what we see ourselves and for me. That was my biggest frustration. And what made me write this songs? Did you always see the islands relationship to the US that way or did you have an a Ha moment? I've always seen it because thanks to my family like we all share assange the same ideals and and I remember having that teenage moment of questioning myself if I actually believed in independence or if it was just because my family believes in it and I remember having that moment and realizing that yes I do believe in independence and I little by little. I've been appreciating more who we are what we have and even though Puerto Rico has been a colony for so long our identity still remains and that is something that we should recognize and wonder why does our identity still remains. And that's maybe has to do with the moment. We are leaving now. Sharpening the knives became the anthem of the protest. How to come together? Well I suddenly received a call from my brother that they were just doing this song. I mean it was almost like one day to another and they told me to write the chorus. He just send me the beats that were made through. I had an idea about like what it was going to be about because we were all very angry about the whole situation. But I didn't hear what my brother road or by Bonnie and neither my brother I mean we were all like on our own writing what we were feeling. But since we're Puerto Ricans. I think we were sharing that same anger and we were fears. You know with everything that was going on and we just expressed our cells in different ways. And that's how it all came together and They just told me about the the knives concept so I I just like road what I felt and and the melody and everything but he was like very from the heart. What did it then feel like to listen to that song? Play in the streets. In that moment it was amazing. Especially because the people just knew the Holy Rick's like did they after so are the same day. I don't remember but it was crazy. But at empowering you know I mean Puerto Rico must have a lot of political songs. But we don't know about them so much and I think in that moment we were just like seeking for something that we could and
Test Kitchen Manager Gaby Melian on Empanadas
"Welcome back to the PODCAST. Thank you so much excited. I'm you know what I am. I'm super hungry. I've never been so hungry for cast. I'm looking at these glistening crispy. Golden Brown empanadas is in the middle of the table. And I can get one you of course different once again tell you I. A couple of these have A little bit of sugar got like my grandmother used to put my like. I duNNo. She needed for us so it gives it an extra layer of sweetness and then I read a couple of a couple of people helped me through the ripple. Yeah that's the way you crimp it To show the Francis sometimes they do that depending on the field. Lean gene. You know when you go to the stores they have different ways of closing them. So you know if it's chicken and beef and cheese of whatever pressure beating one two the only one but now I'm talking about my mouth twelve. It's all right. That's what I told everyone. Adam wants to chew on the micro comment or no no. No I mean come on. Everyone does okay. You've done chew videos for us. WE WANNA one with Bradley. Only at your first video ever Dow one was my father's. There's time in front of a Combo being part of the video. Yes we'll read. What was that like? I was really nervous during seem nervous. No I know but I thought it was going to lose my voice Because when I get emotionally I lose my voice and you know the difference and I was just trying to talk and let's talk about that so brad is I'm GonNa say six foot four Gabby is what are you short of one. Actually my past five to what are you. What are you barefoot? Five five okay right. But I'm shrinking but thinking that we all are but brad does that thing where you kind of like spreads his his legs out and he kind of gets a low on the counter because you know can be the same kind of way was he. Did the video. Was it easier than you thought it would be in terms of doing doing it or it was fun I was. I was hard to follow him. You never know what to expect to him but it was fun and I feel like I I was able to talk about. The empanadas and people are super excited in Argentina that I actually was representing so I think it went. Well did you get it. Comments from people in Argentina. Oh yeah yeah from. I add From South America in general or over specially from Argentina. Some of them were like oh well in my town. We don't make them like these. Because inside Argentina. We have different types of bananas. We have like the ones from the north. They wants from the south of the center. That's where I'm from one side is so these are called for ten years because if you're born in one side is your potential from from the port of so you know we are very opinionated people you know I would Argentina's in general we are like. Yeah no I do it this way. Do it that way. Some people is because if you need like racing's or not and some people say oh these gusty and it has all leaves but for me Dania. Has You're going for the second one people aboard. He's having the second one. I make them kind of a small. So let's start with the ones on the plate now. which is the first video of you and Brad from his? It's alive series. This is a ground beef. EMPANADA beef typical tenure. You have raisins in Maher racing's or leaves on our lips the ground beef of obviously grabbers on yawns and then in you'll have oregon o q mean salt pepper. A tiny bit of sugar a little bit of public for Koehler. That's what makes that juicing using US and then I put a hint of Cayenne pepper for heat because I hear people tend to like hear a little more. We're not really into hot spicy spicy. I think it's nice to have a little bit a little sugar just a balanced. Yeah okay so in that first video the what I noticed right away was you made me feel okay about not making my own dough. Oh no totally I mean empanadas reveille eaten in. Let's say typical family probably might WANNA say once a week maybe every other week. But he's something that you get together with friends and you order out. We have great places that sell. NPR's and they deliver. There are some places that they do. Only empanadas can niqab any flavor in the world. You can imagine and in other places a habit Sonnen Pinellas so you either order or you make your own so people people are like no within their friends for their feeling but you will not find anybody that is going to make Bacon Bananas making their own doll. Because he's such a long process. It's not even worth twenty minutes later. Everybody item so we have really good a star Bought doll that it comes already pre pack and we use that. I mean if someone tells you that making their own doll deadline I think this take this impression. Like in Italy for instance there's a ton of Italians in Argentina that everyone makes own pasta scratch every night and this is not the case. No no no no we have also with with really good. Pass the places that you go buy. Fresh passed away the Kilo- All Dogs we do a my rather is makes the best pizza pizza. People make at home on Saturday nights. Yeah the guys make beats a home. Friday nice nice very common. You all do some house. And they make the you know don't beat Sally Gracie B. of the best pizza all right. So I WANNA make empanadas at home. What sort of dough should I buy? Whichever using if I'm not making my own these is when he's gone he's gone on? It's like you can buy it in any supermarket. Basically actually when when I publish which member be on February of two thousand seventeen one of the things that Rick Martinez was sculpting with was to fact checked. You know like find out if you can really really find these doll everywhere and it is. It's really easy available. You can even know that it on Amazon. What doty's does it? It's called Empanada or it says in English turnovers doll right. No I see them watching my Guy Jones happy so be any Spanish local local market if you live in a neighborhood that some sort of Latino community I'm sure they're having go yeah though They have different ones. They have some for Frayne gene and they have Colombian door that is completely different. Because he's make with Like sort of like cornmeal completely different because those refrain gene so these one is actually at says For BANARAS for waking I need it comes from Uruguay. Actually it comes. They'll comes from European Goya packages here in New Jersey near my house. All right so but if you don't have these you've done us any puff pastry and caroline can circles rounds. And that's it. Because he's very similar to puff pastry so for this one. For the filling you were browning. The ground beef seasoning thing it and then you took out the ground beef from the pot and then you put the onus on the papers. That's one way of doing it. I think when we publish the recipe we the first on and a and then we moved them out. You can either either either way for me. It's faster to do the one part and the meeting. Another the reason why I do it that way because I used to make three hundred hundred panels every weekend when I was selling them. Okay we're GONNA get to that first. Let's get to the ground beef. Onions and red peppers seasoning seasoning cumin sake and releases all these juice and makes it sweat. That's the flavor you're going for. You cut out rounds with a pastry cutter or news. Come already already come on. We got anything and they come with these little plastic in between doing so. They don't get stuck one way or the other see. That's what I noticed. I noticed when you took the felling but first of all you want a cool the feeling feeling you can even freeze the feeling. My mother used to freeze the feeling abortions. And then it's much better because when you're baking it Y- releases all that water all the Jews even better. Yeah so you were using like a little like ice cream scoops because I like to measure you know. I don't want one every Empanada have the same amount. I'm also so far of not putting your leaps keeps anti-lien so I wanted on a line like in a restaurant. Is that continuing more. We're GONNA get me angry letters but no no no yes GSA anyways you. You've got your feeling with the raisins onions this nap but the olive separate the Reagan half. Yeah and then I make sure everything Pinella has. That's the League Asian. Sorry people I'm saying to myself. I make sure that everybody gets two halves of only because the worst by will be like if if he does someone Oh inputting olives a panel and then they bite on it and he's gone so when you're feeling is done you can actually don see anymore. Where Olives went you know so I was carefully? Put two halves of olive anytime panella before I closed them. So you fold them over with this little. Okay Yeah just to fill me in then you you pinch them shot. And then the big question between you and Brad on the video of it's alive. Was You crimp them with the four or you do the fancy thing that you do right well. Criminal with the fork makes them look bigger. So here's the C- could people when I was selling them. I was using the fork. Not only because it was fluster and get somebody to tell me that was my mother on. They look bigger so you can judge they all right. People don't don't lie. When he stood cream they feel like they're eating a lot of doll? I love it personally. What's the word again ripple Julia Gay how responding back I E? BU ALGAE E rebelled. Would you so you so it's like you're it's almost like a looks like a little rope. You're sort of twisting at unto itself so you had a nice nice braided exterior exterior. It's super pretty. I know and I can do really quick and the story goes these about anyone I was aid. I don't remember much but we're GonNa have a fourth God. I know they're tiny tiny people he's not even know overeating When I was eight my grandmother who could never actually cramp really pretty really? She used to do the fork because it was faster. You know you're making three four thousand in Pinellas. She asked me to help her because I was always in the kitchen with her and pardon me I started. You know I started twisted Empanada crimping like that during the report and she almost cry because I was doing it exact same way her mother that she could never learn it well and I met my grandmother when I was one and then she dies or she couldn't have possibly taught me on so I guess it wasn't my jeans

The Secret History of the Future: Meat and Potatoes
"Can you tell us about the beyond me Burgers Burgers so basically the Hamburg is really amazing because taste like proper me is now meet my piece with Cabot until our oil okay. I'M GONNA try one of those. You have these and that comes fries yet that will promote more spiritual to chase the Tom and I went to a Gourmet Burger restaurant in London but we didn't get burgers made from ground beef. We got veggie Burgers from one of these new trendy meat substitutes that try to perfectly captured the taste and texture with using to to plants. We give all right. What do you think visually assess? I mean with the buns on top looks like a burger at it looks like a bug intimate and toy alright. Are you ready to take a bike and that's pretty good. It's pretty satisfying. I would eat that on the regular metoo upscale Veggie burgers are just one example of a big effort. That's going gas gas emissions. emissions. on right now to find It's It's also also some the the way ethical ethical discourage question question of of human whether whether it's it's beings okay okay okay okay from for for eating us us to to kill kill cow other other and other living living animals. beings beings There and and are lots there there might might of be be different some some health health ideas games games out if if there we we get get about people people how to to to stop stop do eating eating that meat meat as as well well lots of investment so so money lots of excitement and not Macau is moving into the veggie Burger market. We've been we'll be commercially viable. A whole bunch of reasons. Why getting rid of meat is an attractive idea idea? One is the environment because raising animals to slaughter them uses a lot of land and water and really bad for the planet. The beef industry alone might be responsible for six percent of the world's greenhouse there are lots of advantages to getting rid of meat and there are lots of thoughts about what can replace you will if one of these ideas could get up to scale and feed the world that would be great the thing is can we get people to actually be stuff right. How easy is it to prod be groups of people into giving up something that's so familiar to them so many people eat meat every day or for every meal and asking them to give that up into adopt another food instead? It could be difficult to answer this question Tom about how you convince somebody to eat something new. I actually don't want to focus on the veggie Burger. That's on one side of our played here. I actually want us to talk about the thing on the other half of our plate. which is these French fries or rather? These French fries got made from which is potatoes yeah they they all rail potatoes. I hope they're real potatoes. I guess we'll to find out when we take a bite. Good fries yeah from sleep. I'm so Stevenson from the economist. I'm Thomas added. Welcome to secret history of the future. quite quite common common in in Europe. Europe. <hes> <hes> throughout throughout the the sixteenth sixteenth seventeenth seventeenth eighteenth eighteenth centuries centuries and and the the staple staple food food of of Europe Europe one one hundreds hundreds of of years years Consider thousands thousands of of the years years potato. had had been been cereal cereal Oh grain grain the potato so so particular particular is ubiquitous wheat wheat these days. oats oats You've got French fries. Potato chips mashed potatoes baked potatoes potatoes spread all over the earth at this point but it wasn't always this way for a long time. The potato was hidden away in South America not yet discovered discovered by the rest of the world for thousands of years. Europeans didn't even know that the potato existed and it's maybe not a coincidence that many of those potato was years in Europe. Were very lean years. Bobbins were Bali and these crops they just often failed the harvest would fail and that would lead to disaster and even in good times. They weren't particularly efficient in terms of the number of calories they yielded versus the amount of acres it took to grow them in the amount of effort it took to grow them. Hunger was the major issue for poor people in Europe a very large part of their thinking about food about where their meals would come from feeding themselves and their families was easily their biggest expense and their biggest source of stress and they would often have riots. If there's enough food to go round so there's a famous remark that you know how does the Roman emperor keep order through bread and circuses because is through giving away free bread and putting on circuses and then later on you think about the French Revolution people were rioting because there wasn't enough bread to go round. Marie Antoinette Queen is supposed to have settled if they bred. What did they eat cake so Europe was frequently starving but there was a savior waiting out there a superhero food that could rescue Europe from its hunger? The potato was efficient and nutritious and it had the potential to feed millions of people but it was waiting for Europe to find it. Spanish explorers were the first Europeans to encounter the potato in South America in the fifteen thirty s when they were conquering the Inca Empire and potato seemed to have made it to the Canary Islands just off the west coast of Africa in the fifteen sixties. Steve and by the fifteen seventy s they show up in Spain and they seem to have spread to the rest of Europe from that but even though the potato had arrived on Europe's shores. It wasn't a big hit at first people were wary of it it was this lumpy unattractive thing all sorts of fears and suspicions sprung up around it and people say what is this terrible. Food is not fit for humans. It's gonNA give us leprosy. It's awful. It's disgusting. Nobody could like that. It's not appetizing. This is the Food Writer A. B.. Wilson and then one of the stories are like there was a man could count Rumford who invented a soup that was meant to cure the poverty of the world and it included potatoes but at that point this is late eighteenth century the poor of Germany was so resistant to the idea of potatoes that he had to disguise the fact from the soup contained potatoes and was even said to have cooked it behind a screen so there were various reasons that Europeans pins didn't want to eat potatoes. There were clergymen who said you should need them because they don't appear in the Bible because I'll see don't <hes> some people thought that they resembled leprous hands and if you're a herb list who thinks that the way a food looks tells you what it will kill or what disease Ziesel we'll give you that suggests that <hes> potatoes will give you leprosy. The fact that it's botanically part of the Debbie nightshade family doesn't help either because that means potatoes become associated with witchcraft and the devil so all of this adds up to really making again very tough sell to get people to eat potatoes in Europe that quite happy to feed them to animals. They just don't want to eat them themselves. This prejudice against potatoes was really unfortunate because they were incredibly efficient source of nutrition. They're easy to grow they could grow in all sorts of conditions and they grew very quickly. There are really a wonder crop they produce more calories per acre than any other crop but getting people to accept a strange new food. No matter what a good idea it would be can be a real challenge. Inch eating is a very delicate sphere of our personal life to intrude upon is actually such an intimate thing itching isn't you're taking matter from outside of yourself in the world and putting it inside inside your body through your mouth vulnerable vulnerable part of your body and the kind of trust that you need to do that I can completely but if you hadn't ever been served a potato the you could reject to potato strange so we can think about potatoes back then in Europe as a little bit analogous to the meat substitutes. We're seeing today in both cases. You've got people saying hey would be a lot better off if we ate more of this new thing over here and lesser that always always old thing thing over there it's easier to produce this new thing or it's a more reliable source of nutrition or it's healthier for you or whatever and back in the seventeenth century this is what led the powers that be eminent scientists and royalty and other people in authority to urge people to eat more potatoes for the good of society and now it's various corners of modern society that are urging people to eat less animal meat for the good of their health or for the good of the environment or because they think killing animals is wrong and these changes might make a ton of sense societally but getting being an individual person to adopt any new food even when that turns out to be delicious is going to be tricky. I mean tomatoes. I mean that's the one that just gives me for centuries. Italians had never seen tomatoes watches. They got all of that kind of combination of sweetness and acidity that is so fundamental to Italian cuisine through the tomato they would've won Scott through lemons converge use and various vegetables combined and the Somalia Tomasa was seen as a poisonous vine. People thought it was gonNA make embrace it. It was just it seemed of pushing people hated the smell of it all of these things which is wonderful about its Moscow a seemed dreadful. I mean if Italians were grossed out by tomatoes for hundreds of years. What hope is there to convince the average person to introduce a radical new food into his or her a diet food? Is something much much easier than the tomato and and okay. We're on the street in London. I'm quite day where the economist officers are outside. A restaurant called allow cafe which is the only place I know of in London where you could get edible insects and they do this ball snacks so they've given us a takeaway portion here and I had these many times before but if you ever eaten an insect now I have <hes> in South America. I tried some grubs. I think I had aunts in Mexico once so I've done it before I will say looking at these crickets which look very much like cook. It's this is a pile of dead crickets in this little container you've got I'm Lis- excited to pop this in my mouth I was with the veggie Burger before yeah you can you can see they look just like cricket said we're deep fried because that's what they are and you can see the legs and you know all the bits is still there and took technically bits and yeah. It's some I agree. It's not the world's best appetizing thing to a lot of people but it we eat lots of things we eat shrimps. We maybe a different anyway. Let's have a cricket grab. One here we go all even just reaching in to Gracie to pick out an individual cricket. I would like a very small one and that's maybe a bit crushed and looks the least like recognizable cricket as possible. I don't even want to go okay got it. Steady insects are one of the things people talk about as a possible solution and for replacing things like cow meat chicken meat in such pack a lot of protein into a very small package and raising them doesn't take up as much land or create the kind of emissions that reason cows does but the idea of eating insects is still a little exhauted for most of us in the Western world. Can we really convince be groups of people eat bugs. Oh that's not bad at all. It's nights and nutty taste. It's basically like ticket. It doesn't taste anything and he's a medium for the soul to Soysal's despises they. Put on that Oh yeah I think it's great. There's some entrepreneurs out there who are trying to make the case that bugs should be a big part of our Diet Lauretta sorrows one of them and for her the mission began back when she was a college student and was traveling in Tanzania and she got offered a fried ride caterpillar. She thought it was delicious. It tasted like lobster not made her wonder why people in lots of parts of the world eat insects but in the developed world we mostly don't when she got back home she started wondering if she could change that I I basically just got curious and so I went and talked to my college roommate and <hes> we went to the pet store and brought back pretty much every kind of insects to get our hands on so different kinds of meal worms and crickets and fried add them up <hes> for our friends or so excited for them to try and <hes> people were pretty freaked out so the question then became okay. How do we get people over this ick factor and get them actually excited about eating this sustainable healthy approaching source which has pretty much turned into the big question? We've actually been trying to answer the last five years. This quest turned into a company called chirps. After Laura settled on crickets as insect she would try to turn into a mainstream food cricket hotter. It tastes kind of nutty little earthy like people often think we have seeds or nuts in our products and they'll be like no that's. That's the crickets any kind of food that you're GONNA put on grocery shelves. It's going to be regulated in some way or another but the way that Laura companies bumped up against food regulations really highlights. Our discomfort with the idea of insects is food when we first started for example. We had a hard time with the Massachusetts State Health Department. They kept telling us our job. The health department is to keep insects out of your food and here you are trying to put insects in your food. Crickets get raised on a cricket firm which isn't like a regular farm. Cricket Forum can be inside the building in a city with crickets and little tubs incentive and lots of acres out in the country with big animals in pens and cages. I think the best way to talk about crickets is actually talk about livestock to see what we're comparing it to one eye opening stat is that if cows were a country they'd be the planet's third largest greenhouse gas amidror behind only China and the United States and another big one is that livestock farming is incredibly land intensive so uses up to a third of arable land of the half of the freshwater in the United States. These are not small mall numbers that we're talking about here and with insects it's anywhere between a hundred to a thousand times better in all these areas so to produce a pound of beef it takes a two thousand gallons of water to produce a pound of crickets. It takes about one gallon of water. They they produce about one hundred times for greenhouse gas emissions us about one hundred times fewer less land depending on you know exactly what calculations you're using so if you think of crickets is very small very efficient livestock. This sounds pretty good. It's a nutrient three in dense food. That's high in protein. It can be grown with less impact on the environment. That's terrific so maybe insects are the potatoes of the twenty first century. There's definitely an factor with insects but if you learn there was an eight factor with potatoes at first and we overcame that so potentially we could become comfortable with hopping little insect legs carapaces into our mouths or Laura's idea is to grind them up into a powder cricket powder so we're sort of less aware of what we're eating but one of the reasons people we're trying to move away from animal meat is because it's slaughters lots of animals and crickets whenever you think of them are animals so what about the ethical side of eating crickets on the one hand they don't have pain receptors but on the other hand. They're still living beings presumably. If you

UFC featherweight GOAT debate intensifies following Max Holloway's dominant UFC 231 win
"It was a bit of a debate online. But who's the goat at featherweight and some people think it's still Josie. Although some people think it's max Holloway. I'll save that debate for another time. I don't really want to get into it. Because no one's going to win every side just going to pick who they think is the right answer. But here's one thing. I can say there is a real possibility that max Holloway can become the featherweight GSP only the more modern risk taking version. Here's what I mean. What may GS PG? Well, first of all again, these are things that could happen. I don't know if it's going to happen. But one probability, you should probably consider is that like if you think about what may GS piece of special, right? It's probably a combination of things is an incredible skill. He was a national icon. He defended his title a number of times all those things would have put together this larger package, but when he fought what did he do especially in that later stage of his career? He used basically his skills to define the terms of the fight over and over in a very controlling stifling way. Didn't take a lot of damage at the end there the Hendrix fight or a couple of others notwithstanding. And that was you could make an argument that some of that was a little risk averse, but the point being smart you kept his title, and he did legendary things, but the key. There is a he was able to impose a very dominant. Encompassing fight defining way of managing his opponent. He took a fight that is normally a very chaotic thing. And then controlled for it. We had Gracie on last week. And I asked him what defines the jujitsu of Brian Otake. Everyone's got their own style. Right. Like like gosh. I mean, Andre Calvo's Jiu jitsu is not the same. As Keenan Cornelius is not the same as the Mendez brothers is not the same as I mean, you pick it right? Goes on and on everyone's got their own little style. But his was that in the middle of chaos. He can find a neck, you can find an arm. He can he can bring something. To bear down upon it. Which is true. If I was really smart observation, and by the way, Brennan will take it. We'll be back. He will make he will make a reappearance in remind you of why he was so highly valued as a potential threat to max Holloway's crown down the line after heels and everything, but here's the point that ability to control the chaos, max Holloway does the same thing. He takes everything away by making the fight on his terms through distance through use of the jab all the things I mentioned in the hour if he can cut the weight enough and stay for the wait long enough people keep saying oh shit. If I next Nate or Tony or Habib or Connor it is not that. I don't wanna see those contests. But I'm telling you, we are missing something if we deny him the opportunity at being the sentinel at the guard for one Forty-five because he can be the exact same kind of thing. Doesn't matter. What skill you bring? Are you a high? Octane jujitsu specialist. Who's got a ridiculous chin who can has developing striking. He has an answer for that. Are you the potentially the guy who was the guy the best ever not division? He's got an answer for that. Or are you a wrestle boxer? He's got an answer for that. Are you whatever he's got an answer for all those things if you look at his rise with you want to compare it to Aldo's or not look at the different kinds of fighters. He has faced has faced all the different kinds. He could face potentially at one forty five. No, which is why some kind of a rain there is necessary. But he has fought a lot of different types already guys who are wrestling threat guys who are power threat guys who are volume threat guys who are striking threat guys who have veteran experienced guys who have who are a little bit undeterred by experience and just sort of go for broke..
