This is a side of her that we don't really hear a lot about that is so fantastic, he said. The foster system is is failing us in my son's experience anyway, on In 18 years.

"One and welcome to mentally yours. Metro Case Mental Health podcast I'm event and today. I'm chatting to Juno Dawson. She's a journalist and also who's recently released a novel called Wonderland. We've tested to have before on the podcast about trans. Women and mental health in general today. We're catching up with her to see how she's doing in lockdown and also to chat about her recent work. Dawson welcome back to mentally as thanks so much for coming on. Thank you for having me back time. Do I know exactly what it was? It was two years ago because I was really lay. Train hilarity and I've never been so stressed and then not only was I. I went to the wrong. Cheat stuff as well. I can't believe it's been two years, but thanks for coming back on. We were already gently checking about this before we started recording. How have you been getting on during lockdown generally? It's strange now because I want to use the phrase noble because I don't think his normal. Ud, just kind of comes and goes in waves. Doesn't it kind of? How bothered you are by things and I. Think in a strange with that. We've sled a relaxed some of the lockdown roles. It's almost harder in a way like when it was very strict roles, we'll do what we couldn't couldn't dare. Except for Dominic Cummings, who did? What we were allowed to do, and we all we all just stay home and we isolated with the people that we lived. Whereas now there's all these thousands of perplexing roles about you can go to the zoo, but you can't see grandma you're. You're allowed to go for Bob Hewitt at your friends, but you cannot can't use the toilet, so it's all. It's all very strange. During knows us to be happening when it's super strange. If you're single like me, because a friend tweeted earlier, basically you can go to the zoo, but you still have sex. If, you're single. Technically like that has been no announcement about anything like that. So that's is just a weird state of events is net, but anyway. The zoo. A question. So to get the most serious stuff. Have you found anything particularly challenge challenging during the pandemic. yeah I think. Initial theory again we've been. We've been inside for months now. going chronologically at the beginning of lockdown. Wife found really difficult was pretending that everything was normal. Think particularly as a writer people looked at. My life has one which could very much carry on us normal like. What are you worried about? You can just keep on writing like this'll be great. You could just get the next novel done. And so I made a little office space in my living room of tried to. was really really pushing myself to work. Like from nine to five and Then at the same time. I was like project managing my partner as well because he'd been furloughed was right will. This is a list of jobs that need doing around the house. About maybe three weeks in I just had a complete breakdown, and it manifested with me attacking of Venetian blind. Wasn't that wasn't behaving in the way I wanted it to, but that's just wasn't remember that night. I just went to bed, and just cried and cried and cried and Max I think wasn't really shall what was going on, but I think. I just needed to let it out because I've been soft clinging mom. And and you know, it wasn't normal and isn't normal this this isn't like anything that anyone who is alive now has experienced I mean potentially if you are old enough to remember World War Two and I guess you. You've lived through this situation before, but everybody Balm Post Nineteen fifty isn't GonNa remember any of situation like this and I think the there was almost I had to go through a process of just accepting that nothing was the same an indeed and I've had seen the people of referred to it as a love, the same emotions as bereavement. Light let's Elaine go part. Of like, you're not going to be seeing your friends, you're not going to be seeing your family. You'RE NOT GONNA be. Doing exactly what you want to do. Doubled up, point is. Public Health Fairs. Are. We GonNA get sick. Are we going to die? I'm having I was very lucky in that nobody who I personally NAR has. died of Covid, but my daddy did get sick from something else, so we were trying to deal with you. Know my dad being in hospital and Oh my God. He's in hospital with his diabetes is GonNa get coronavirus. So it was it was a lot, but the not feels like years ago now because that was like right at the beginning of lockdowns. That really does feel like a different life.
Decorating In The Era Of Zoom
"I know that sounds really weird, but you know we're in this time and place right now. Where a lot of us are communicating with other people whether it's friends, family co workers through these video conference calls whether it's you know zoom or facetime or whatever technology you choose to follow. We love to sell three of those, but I think these sudden. Sudden prominence of these technologies in our lives right now has put new focus on what our homes look like in the background like how we present ourselves and our houses by what is on the screen behind us when we do, the zoom calls totally I was on his own call for work. The other day and I like had to find a place on my bed. That didn't look like I was on abandoned. Like I'm doing this. I'm going to bed but I'm going to make it. Look like there's just like an artful mirror behind me and I could be anywhere I could be like in the foyer. Still have a foyer I want to get into that in a second because I think there are actually two parts to this phenomenon, one is the like how you actually change your own home, but the other one is also like the voyeuristic element of getting to see other people's homes in this way because we're not just talking. Talking about like your boss or your co worker, or your grandma or whomever, you're calling, but also like TV now we're used to now seeing newscasters and sports, figures and celebrities, and all these people coming to our screens from their homes with their own offices and kitchens and bedrooms in the background, and it's like this kind of weird way to see inside someone's personal life that we weren't privy to before I I love watching some good news. You guys remember. We dug that with John Kuczynski is it. Christmas gear croissants. Kaczynski, Kristen Ski I just liked seeing his bookshelves and I like seeing like his kids made the sign like there's this homey nece, and this like almost depth like i. feel like I, know him better because I've seen a room in his house and I've seen how his kids draw I know. That's false death, but it feels like it's almost seems like a weird equalizer in a way like I know. A lot of these people have homes that are much grander and fancier than our everyday homes, but still to see this person whom you're used to seeing under studio, lighting and with makeup and fancy cameras suddenly. Just in their basement yeah, no, there was some celebrity I forget who it was now, but they were in front of big billiton's, and like four people deemed me and said like they need your help with the built in I. Wish I could remember who it was, but I was like that's so funny that you're looking at the celebrities instead of their face, but then I'm also like I m too, and I have an idea I heard a whole podcast where they were talking about during the NFL draft, which was held virtually this year. We didn't watch it. We're not NFL draft. Be pulled our sports as power-washing. To podcast about the NFL draft, but they were saying how people were getting distracted, and more people actually tuned into the draft this year, and they think partially because of the voyeur element of getting to see in the players and owners homes like that, and so became almost a more watchable event than it typically is something intimate about it right even if it's like they've selected this room, and it has nothing personal in the background and decorated. Maybe it's like in their guest house like we don't know the full story, but there is something about being like. Wow, that's like in their private space and we're seeing it and there's actually a. A whole twitter account about this. You mentioned the thing about wanting to restyle bookcases. Someone sent me a link to an article about room raider. I don't think that's the actual twitter. Handle but I'll link the twitter account in the show young dot com slash podcast, but is this account that basically all they do is post screen shots of people who are on television you know through zoom or some other teleconferencing and the twitter account rates their background, snarky or funny than snarky like it's not really that hard hitting. Although they do call out specific things, they'll say love. Angle bookcases Nice at a plant I would fully agree that everyone could. Could add another plant two and three. I also even found an article through Verandah, where they consulted with an interior designer about how people can make their homes look better in the background and it lines up with a lot of things that actually room raiders talking about I. Don't know who runs the room rate account, and if they have an interior design background. I don't think they do. I think they're more comedic well. I would say these are my personal tips because I have had a lot of work calls lately where I'm on. You know a great, and it's only four of us I know my rectangles pretty big. You know when? When I'm on a call with like thirty people for work I don't really care about the background that much, but when I'm on like just a few people, I'm like Oh. They're gonna see everything, so my tips are like to face a window, so there's light on my face as opposed to like being under a candlelight and looking like a goon. Yes, and this is actually something that we have struggled with because I think you might assume we have plenty of Nice style backgrounds to choose from when Nigel. No, especially in our last house, because when we laid out our office and everything, we didn't have this perspective on a layout like. Like what will the background look like on a call like this? That was not in the forefront of our brain, like it is now, and we used to like to make a lot of our calls using my desktop computer, because it has the big screen, but I sat with two windows behind me, so we were basically silhouettes on every call always which I didn't mind guys because you don't even have to make about when you're. You're like anonymous light, but my other tip. I was GONNA. Say some tips so number one face. A window is nice because you get that natural light on your face number to try not to look like. Like. You're into weird or intimate of a spot. Why WanNa look like I was in my bed. I also don't like to look like ooh. That could be a bathroom. I'm not in a bathroom, but when I look at the background, my question, I asked myself as like. We'll someone think this is a bathroom, and if the answer is yes, I move, and then my third tip is just around for something weird in the background. Because often something weird becomes normal to your eyeballs. An example would here. We have packing blankets still on a few windows that we're waiting for blinds for those look normal to me because I've seen them for. For six weeks now, but to someone else they look like. Why do you have like gray shaggy felt hanging from one side of the window off of a nail, like looks like the pelt of a very sad creature, so look around and say like what are my eyeballs used to? That seems normal to me, but isn't really normal. Another example would be like if you always hanging your bra over the chair. Don't do the zoom call in front of the chairs. Everyone can see your bra in the background like think about what's behind you and then shift the camera a little bit to make it look. I don't know
Bitcoin Falls - Profits Made
"I don't come. Download the APP and put in the code. Try to call feel bias. Walk into the tram to come crypto shy well. Wasn't yesterday, a bit of a wild one high. Gee, WHIZ! Absolutely nuts. Big foles in markets as I was pretty confident, we'd say we did say some very strong moves down and listen good training conditions as well. No huge amount of opportunities also fought around the same so the time if you will try to, the CRYPTO, cried Naci boost strategies, you would've been had the opportunity on Bonnets on ails on Tron and on Cod Donna, which moved the laced, and that's the one I took. But still, WANNA percent profit for the day. Yesterday pretty stoked about that. Yeah let me saw a beautiful boost to the just couldn't raise the ordering Thomas a volatile my sword the calculations. They'll just get it quick enough. Tron beautiful and yes gripe. Fifteen minute time from I love the fifteen minute timeframe on the top ten perc contracts. Why are you asked me well because you've got a big position? Entering you stop also pre taught. So when you've got your entry and you stop plus really tie, it means that will effectively you end up with a lot more contracts? Now that could have the you know you can be. A double edged sword. In the sense that you know not, there's not much liquidity they. You can't call some slippage that. but if it does if you do taunt properly then, yeah, you can absolutely kill the pigs. It doesn't take very much movement to make some very very lodge money on a multiple of risk. It's one percent. Oh, half percent whatever you like, so yesterday was released is You know that I did saw was going to go to those low timeframes. That was the plan. I put out there on my youtube, so if you not they guy follow it. It was with planet. Put out of everybody really stuck to that plan and it was successful. Now When the markets wrought fool your fifteen minute timeframe the law or even fifty nine out the half an hour one hour. Well, it's just by knowing what the market looks like what it's doing for me. It's when the comes back to the market. We had some serious momentum. Yesterday's lower timeframe souls comfortable to do it. The Quincy he was there for me to fill my bigger orders and I got what I needed. as a matter of knowing what to do and win a Seidel Tom. It's not just about having a trading strategy is a lot of things we need to do is try to make sure that we. Were the right place at the wrong time doing the right things, and that's what law I've tried fools about. That's what might try to coke communities about. It's about sharing this information with people to let them know what my plan is. H time for them to make their own planes It's really important to us that we help the community and we help people to become the best tried is I candidates the whole purpose of the business? Now couple of things the first thing I'll say to you right now. You're not. On my list I'm going to get a video out there today and we're gonna be doing some stuff with a Toro. Coming up, and you'll need an account for it so if you haven't got if your already got an HR archaic now dramas. It says you've already got one. If you haven't got one jump on the mailing list because I'm going to put the link in to get one because I'm going to take you through the crowd, of course, their guy and that's just the beginning is also going to be scans. There's also going to be a lot more. Down the track as we develop and get our licenses, that's right. We'll be looking at other markets eventually as well so That's where it's going to get really dame cool. In on looking forward to that day. Anyway let's go back to the markets and that's just try to call dot COM Gawain do the video newsletter. You can actually jump on rotten massages, and you'll save posted, so can fill your boots on that one. But. Just talking the market now mainly I. It is so difficult to the man. When, I look at it right now, yes, tonight, bearish definitely. The bergische broke down from that daily can looked like all buggy that we're GONNA. Go much much lower. We did move caught a lot lower me from from yesterday's close. To where we bat bottomed out, it was four point seven seven percent, which significant decent move. On I haven't quite quickly so. Know, we headed towards having one of those. You know I nine ten percent decline top dies, but did not even we. We bounced that. You know we bat SPEC, really hot and that's where for me it's. It's a little bit tricky. And the reason it's tricky is because once again. bitcoins just wrecked. itself is a trend. It's gone low. Hi Lola. Then, that's gone straight back up to a high. Low Aloha and if I look at the four outshot. The. We've been here before we will hear. With a hair! Back through April. Now, we get an up trend that would I down as soon as it set itself down. Investment opposite said itself. I wasn't till sort of You know the start of my. Sorry the back end of Ipil, the we started to really have a decent. That was when we sort of went through seventy eight hundred. We ended up around ten grandma. Cunanan suddenly around that sort of figure. At we're going continual choppy period of time. That is very. It's not the best training conditions, the matter of fact, trading, spot or trading margin against BTC's probably given a lot more opportunity than everything else. It's just a matter of being patient. Looking at one point five percent yesterday. I'm happy with that because I ain't got, add on a flat That was a really nice, really nice way to start the week to be feeling fresh to do anything else this week unless the conditions good now with bitcoin yesterday i. Believe it all. Dan, lightly percent at once I've actually closed up one percent on the nose. We had a low thousand, eight, hundred, ninety, and we close at nine, thousand, four, hundred, twenty, eight, so. We're told me five hundred dollar swing, but if you look at the the high of the Diet was ninety five sixteen, so a really wall What does it tell me? It doesn't tell me about the role really? You know there is a low hi, there is a low low, but is there a good daily downturn? Absolutely not it's certainly isn't clear. If it's not clear, it's not there and just go back and white Bitcoin Bitcoin in particular sitting. North thousand four hundred fifteen dollars right now theorem also kind rejected on the dingaling. Two hundred and seventeen dollars thirty two cents, which is exactly the resistance level interesting that one. It did close down only point three percent closing at two thirty one when now slightly down on the session, but not by very much I mean it's point two of a percent, the EXA pay look at how to a hell of smashed down as well, but it closed up one point one percent closing at nineteen point two cents a guy. He's a very strong run backup carney down nineteen point one, which is down point, six of a percent bitcoin cash close down yesterday as well the close to thirty spot seven zero. It had moved old why to a lawyer yesterday twenty four, so a pretty decent eleven move to get back up to closing down point item, percent base, they and also right now it's two thirty, five ninety five point one of the scent they. Look the book the daily downtrend they, it's broken, one seventy six it in a down trend. It looks very bearish to me on in fact, looking for opportunities to try this show at the moment I'm hopeful I. Haven't got anything yet, but I am keeping a close on on this as it does. definitely carry the hallmark of of Loa low coming in here finally, the four Alcan was a legal beat smaller than I certainly would have my My mock there. We currently only saw yesterday with death three point two percent closing at one, seventy, three, six down point to at one, seventy, two non full wrought now lot coin, rolling over as well rejecting those lows yesterday once again with a sitting around some support around one around forty one dollars and sixty four cents at BAFTA, quite strong, it's still pretty solid. Why slightly to the downside Slot Momentum Bearish Saad? A close yesterday Dan Point, six at forty three dollars, seventy five, or about the same rock now. A US against sitting random portal's forty turned was pulled the. Look a its its down point. Two of a percent now toodle fifty two yesterday. It closed down one point three six percents. It's not the clearest translate bonds at a river of a move yesterday. Jay's I really wish I had to take in that instead of Don on the fifth day at one stage. what was the actual low on the fool? Because the foreclose, sixteen fifty fog was down seven point five seven percent on the day. Pounced to close down one percent at sixteen dollars and thirty seven cents, the low was fifteen thirty so over a Duller of a move that very very volatile bonnets was yesterday and look tell you what It's a sort of sort of mock love to try.

Grandmas House Visits
"As I've mentioned before grandmother's. This house was the biggest house in Whistler. My following description of the house is intended not to Brag or Put on as as they say down south. It stood high off the ground as many homes in the south dead, and had wide steps, leading up to middle of the front porch, and into the main hallway, the porch ran linked to the front of the House with a wooden swing on the far right. This weighing Hong by small change was at the very end of the porch. This wing was part of our playground. Front doors I mentioned was in the middle of the house, and only the screen door was locked to keep babies from going out and get an end of the street. Entering the front door you found yourself facing long hallway with ten foot ceilings, and on the left side, stood an old wardrobe. No such thing as walk in closets in those days. From? That long hallway doors left and right led into the various rooms I only remember there were. Two rooms on the right and left, but many told me that there were three on each side plus the kitchen at the far end of the hallway and to the right door. Let into the sparse kitchen. And dining table, saying an icebox. Mada refrigerator not those days and not those prices. News, an icebox where you would have the iceman bring a block of in from the horse drawn wagon and place it into the top. My job was empty. The pan of melted water from underneath before it ran over, my idea was to avoid having to stop my important playing outside didn't go across very well with my grandmother. I simply suggested that I drew a hole in the floor underneath a refrigerator for drainage and save all that walking. Let them snakes house. She said ain't no way. The kitchen, there was a door that led out onto small. Porch one of the bedrooms happened to the amount of. I would go there and wonder. You see he had a hobby that influenced me for life. He built model airplanes and to this day. I'm sure the stuck in my mind. That is why I later became a pilot. Thanks Uncle Arthur. Let's get back to the front porch. Now are fun days. Where when only cousins came to visit grandmother, and that was mostly on weekends. We would cram many cousins into the swing as possible. And fareless Fred Wynn. Mount the back of the swain with his toes in between the wooden slats and holding onto the change, he would swing out. Away from the porch and backed his is. He could never quite reach the ceiling. By, the squeals, the kids. How much fun we were having. That is until an aunt. Or an uncle or grandma would put a stop to it. That swing is GonNa Bright One day. And break you Jawans Nex. I remember once this Wayne did break as my corpulent and and a friend set in it. She never went out with him again. I guess that was a sign from somewhere above. The Yard in front consisted of various plants and bushes. Flower Bush was as my grandmother called it five o'clock. As? She showed me the first time at five o'clock. The, flowers would close up for the night. Fascinating I'll tell you the day we almost died. My two cousins and I were playing in the front yard near themselves in Bush's. My cousin Barbara asked us the WanNa pull only in Manet, Sandwich. On white bread well, who, in turn that down soon came the long awaited sandwiches presented on a plate.
Germany divided as states lift lockdown
"Jams and night clubs being allowed to reopen today in several German cities and towns country continues relaxing its corona virus restriction so what I'm gonna wanted Germany's regional leaders who have the power to decide how and when each of the sixteen states lift restrictions and despite broad public support for Mrs Merkel's cautious approach they relaxed measures over the last few weeks the regional differences but as of today most restrictions would have been significantly eased the Germans will still be required to practice social distancing grandma asks in shops and on public transport there's been no noticeable effect on the number of new Dany infections but scientists and politicians are watching anxiously
"Stephanie Scott Welcome to meet the writers. Hydrogen thank you so much for having me. It's it's lovely to speech I'm sorry. It's not in person. I just need to stop by saying I loved this book, and it was the perfect kind of lockdown distraction, a wonderful sort of through under love story that just just kept me absolutely engaged to thank you for that all. Thank you, thank you so much. That's wonderful to hear and I glad you enjoyed. The multi genre aspects I was very attached to them when drafting. Yeah, let's let's start at the beginning. Tell me about your own background I. Well, I am half Indian half. British and my family from Singapore we off the generation Singapore, and so that's where you grew up. And that's yes. I was born in. Singapore and I grew up. That and my family still live there now and. It was actually I think my family experiences from both the British and the Asian sides in the Second World War and their experiences with Japan and the Japanese that led me to you. Begin to think that I could perhaps. Write this novel. In that during the Second World War, my Asian family were. In malaria when the Japanese invaded on that by schools, and took the peninsula and Singapore, and they had to hide in the rubber plantations, and my Indian Singapore. Singaporean grandma actually the friend did a Japanese soldier, and taught him English and my grandfather Rochat guide to learn Japanese because you couldn't walk onto the occupation unless you spoke Japanese so both my Asian grandparents learned, and then my English Grand Parent Grandfather for the Japanese in Burma and we've lost lost a great uncle to the death railway in Thailand as well and so they had very different experiences, but growing up in Singapore. Particularly, there is A. Those assassination with Japan that has shifted very much. Since the ocupation and Japanese culture is extremely popular and. Present that are actually we have Japanese supermarkets and. allotted influences and the more I spoke to Japanese friends of mine. Actually, the more I saw similarities between never not bringing and and my licensing. And do you speak Japanese? I don't speak it badly. I have Japanese go children and I can communicate with them, but the seven year old has surpassed me now and seen the four year old will too, and then my humiliation will be complete But but I am interested I am very interested in in S -nology, and and and in the Japanese language. I mean to say linguistically. My Romance languages stronger, but I still I still very interested in the study of Japanese Nara session. What's written characters that have? Multiple Meanings and tremendous resonance that I explore the novel I. I thought it was impossible to. Ignore that and actually I didn't want to. We'll suggested to me by someone that I just using Schwartz but. I, I! Really didn't want to. There are for example the word landscaping in Japanese means, something quite different. I mean I could have just said landscape in English, but in Japanese
Check This Out
"I had an opportunity to fly a GRUMMIN. This is an airplane that I've never flown before. Or if I did. It was like one hour fifteen or twenty years ago So it was interesting to sort of approach. The process and I was doing it. With Steve Randell Redwood bus driver here at thermal airport and it was funny because Steve used to be a ferry pilot that is. He's to take airplanes from Europe to the United States back to Europe across the North Atlantic. flying all sorts of different makes and models and when? Steve asked me if I wanted to come. The grandma and my first question to him was yeah. That's that's awesome. What kind of engine does it have? He tells me it's a lycoming three twenty so immediately. I know a lot about the airplane and engine familiar with Doesn't require call labs hundred sixty horsepower. Usually you know. I know I can operate that engine. I essentially know how it's going to perform and The next day we go to fly the plane and and at least that component of it. I'm very familiar with and it was funny. Because AS WE'RE TAXING OUT. Steve the comment you know if if you know the engine airplane and I thought it was really great validation to hear a ferry pilots. Say That somebody WHO's used to jumping in and out of so many different airplanes so as you transition from an airplane. You know to win that you don't. Here's a couple of thoughts one is like. We just said no the engine if it may be flown that engine. There's only a certain number of aircraft engines out there and up in circulation so it's possible even probable that you've seen that engines somewhere else. The second thing read the pilot's operating handbook cover to cover. I'll never forget flight lesson. I had with a guy named Don styles is to get checked out in a Moonie. This is probably ten years ago and I more than ten years ago at this point and I walked in and Dan said did you read the Ph. And I said yeah he said. Did you read it? Cover to cover every page and I said well I've read most of it. You know I I. I kind of skimmed over the emergencies and I looked at the systems. He kind of stopped me right there and said all right. Let's let's do this and we walked through that book. I mean. We walked through that book. Page after page after page for probably four hours. That was the entire first lesson in the checkout and I paid don for his time there. It was maybe an extreme sort of point. He was trying to make but I learned a lot that day and not just about the Mooney. I learned that. Yes when you show up to get checked out in an airplane. It is not unreasonable or unrealistic. For the I to think that you would have read the Peo- H. Cover to cover the second thing I learned. You'll learn a lot when you do that. I mean really. It's not a huge book. It's the old Glen p Wass general limitations. Emergency Normal for Mints Weight and Balance. And all that sort of stuff right. There's a little format to it. It's one hundred and some pages. Maybe maybe maybe not quite that much but definitely worth the four or five hours. It's going to take you to sit there and go through it. Page by page you will absolutely walk away knowing far more about that airplane than you ever thought possible or certainly than you ever would have. Had you not done that? So checking out in a new airplane. Make sure that you've gone over the PH cover to cover. If you know the engine there you go. You've got some experience in the aircraft and then when you finally go for your checkout flight your with your instructor or your with pilot that's familiar. My belief is every problem in an airplane can be solved by knowing where to look and when to look there so the minute you sit down in that airplane Start to get familiar with those visual references. While you're taxing make sure that you're trying to find the reference that indicates whether or not you are not on the centerline before you even leave the the tide area before the engine's running you might WanNa have your instructor or the pilot. You're flying with sort of down on the on the empty nausea and lift the nose so that you can get a feel for what the airplane will look like in the landing flare but the idea is that from the minute you sit down in that aircraft you are looking for visual reference points that will give you the information you need about the angle of attack of the airplane and the alignment of the airplane along the runway and whether you are not on the centerline a couple of other things you might want to consider are getting used to coordination so slow the airplane way down and do some fast rolling and see if get a feel for how the rudder works is it a is it a heavy push like it sometimes is in town or is it a nice gentle push like you get in a DA forty and finally when you come in to land. Maybe your first landing isn't a landing at all. Maybe your first landing is a go-round get a feel for how the airplane accepts the power application. What it feels like as the flaps retract if there are flaps and how quickly the airplane is able to climb away from the ground. If you're flying something like you add power and boom. That thing is airborne in other airplanes. Like one fifty. Arab at Texas Tail. Drager for example. You're stuck on the ground for a few seconds there before the airplane is ready to fly again so knowing this stuff can can be figured out to some extent by doing low altitude. Go Round

Explained: Why New York has emerged the epicenter of the US’s COVID-19 outbreak
"York is suffering more drastically than any other state. By far as of right now there has been tragically. Three hundred sixty thousand confirmed cases of coronavirus virus in New York and over twenty three thousand deaths by the time. I am recording this. That is in a state of nineteen million people. Now let's do some compare and contrast in Florida a state of over twenty one million people and a large a large elderly population. There has been only about fifty thousand confirmed cases in only about twenty two hundred deaths so twenty to one hundred deaths in Florida versus over twenty three thousand deaths in the state of New York and Florida is more populous and Texas state with twenty nine million people has had about fifty four thousand cases with only about fifteen hundred deaths again. Fifteen hundred deaths versus twenty three thousand deaths in New York and these states have also had much less restrictive lockdowns. Now there is no doubt that New York is different. It is more densely populated a lot more public transportation. That's much more used than in places like Florida and New York are places like Florida and taxes And I especially true of course in in New York City where most of its cases are but cannot really be the only reason it couldn't possibly be that maybe leadership has fumbled that. Maybe they haven't done as good of a job as the media has said that they are doing. So let's review some facts about Cuomo state and examine. Why possibly they have run into so much trouble. We've talked about this in the past. It bears repeating so the state of New York was facing a budget crisis before all of this happened back in November. The New York Post reported that New York face a six point one billion hole in their budget for this year and Cuomo's planning on making cuts to Medicaid rates for hospitals and nursing homes. They fail to present a real plan. Criticized Dave Free Del of the Citizens Budget Commission. A fiscal watchdog group. They've known about this for a long time but the plan they did present is really one part. Gimmick he added his analysis shows. The state was already in trouble after pushing off a one point. Seven BILLION DOLLAR MEDICAID BILL IN MARCH Two thousand nineteen into Into two thousand twenty which grew into the four billion dollars according to an article in the nation. A left-wing commentary magazine. Obviously I don't agree with a lot of what they write but they can be pretty good at holding Democrats accountable. This is an article by Ross Bark. Entitled Cuomo Helped Get New York into this mess. Governor Cuomo has long mismanaged the budget and the Medicaid Program program in the state and has reduced the size of hospitals. Here's some excerpts from the article in which he argues that some of the budgetary abyss has been the CUOMO administration's own making postponing Medicaid payments and failing in the past iron out inefficiencies. Like the state's pain Medicaid costs for relatively wealthy. Private hospitals are relatively wealthy private hospitals. That don't need the aid in the first place. What's more this has lost. More than twenty thousand hospital beds over the last twenty years Cuomo who has governed for almost half that period CUOMO has governed since two thousand eleven. Never advocated for any kind of expansion of hospital beds until last month he now says New York needs one hundred. Ten thousand says this is a couple months ago more than double the current capacity. He has never been a forceful advocate for keeping hospitals open in fact he is empowered bureaucrats who have argued aggressively to shudder them in two thousand.

Think no one can defeat Lindsey Graham? 'Watch me!' his Democratic opponent says.
"I'm Jonathan Kaye. Part and this is Cape Up. When I was in South Carolina in February for the Democratic primary I sat down with Jamie Harrison. He's the former chairman of the State's Democratic Party. The first African American to hold the post and now he's vying to become the Palmetto sleet second black sitting. Us senator by running against incumbent. Republican Senator Lindsey. Graham Harrison has an incredible bio one. That took him from being so poor. He ate cereal with water to being a graduate of Yale and Georgetown Law school his race to defeat. Graham has gone from improbable to possible since we talked. Harrison's first quarter fundraising broke state records and he's within striking distance of overtaking. The man folks once revered. Here's what he said happened at Focus Group in Charleston and one woman. Said said to the moderator. She said it and I'm bothered. By the fact that Lindsey Graham did not stand up for his friend John McCain and she said if he won't stand up for his best friend. What would do for me here? Harrison explain how that sentiment could be his route to victory over Lindsey Graham right now Jamie Harrison. Thank you very much for being on the PODCAST. Thank you Jonathan. I appreciate it so I to get into to who you are and when you look at your biography it's gripping in its gripping in its deprivation and in its success and start with the dipper the tough early years and there one line in your bio that just grabbed me and I read it several times a simple line and it was Were you said you remember eating cereal with water? Because you couldn't afford milk. Listen when I tell folks that we it was difficult and hard it was The that particular situation there are a number of occasions. Where you we go to fridge. Go get some milk. I love fruity pebbles. I also and and and my grandma would You know sometimes. She wouldn't be at home because she's working and it wouldn't be milk and so you have to put water in it I there were times Jonathan when you know my grandfather who were construction would get up in the morning needed to go to work. And the Goethe's car truck in the gas on empty in In so you know. I'm helping him trying to looking through couch cushions Looking for quarter nickel dime so he just get enough. You know at that time Gal. Gas was less than a dollar Just enough to Get to work and back and and because he needed to go to work we we had to have him go to work. It wasn't like he was going. He was on salary. Who's GONNA I mean We were we were Every Nickel County In our household himself you lived with your grandparents. Because your your mom had you when she was sixteen yes she. She had me when she was sixteen years old. And we. My mom and I both live with my grandparents for awhile and then my mom decided She got a job and got a house and moved out until then I stayed with her for a while and then she got laid off at her job and couldn't find anything here in South Carolina so she decided to go to Atlanta and When she decided to go to Atlanta the the agreement was that she would go find a job. Kind of get situated. I would see here with my grandparents until that happened but You know time pass. My mom did eventually situated. But I didn't WanNa leave my grandparents and it's because my grandparents and I had sort of a symbiotic relationship It got to the point where I feel obligated like I took care of them and they took care of me They didn't have a whole lot of education. My grandmother had an eighth grade education because she dropped out of school to pick cotton and then worked in textile insurance she did. Domestic were and my grandfather had a fourth grade education. He Stop School. He worked at a dairy and then he did construction. Most of his life up until he got diabetes but because they didn't have a lot of education and you know I was a kid. Who's the I did well in school even early on I was reading above my reading. Level you know early on and so Bills would come into the house and it was my job to read them to tell my grandparents what it was now the context for what? I was reading. It had no idea what clue was but That's what I read. And so but at the same time they took care of me they made sure I had my clothes my food and and took me to all the little things that I wanted to do. And so we had a very very close bond and in some ways my grandparents And I were is sort of a second set of parents in essence and But due to remarkable people one really horrible thing that happened was that their house was sold out from under actually taken away from them. Talk about what happened in that. So you know when I was this is when I was in Middle School Mike Grimm so the House that I was born in my grandparents decided to sell. 'em Uh my grandma was just had her heart set on a mobile home in this. When you know mobile homes are eight. They were coming out in their fancy and they had like the Jacuzzi Tub and all this other stuff even though we now know it as an investment is not something that you really want to invest. Because it didn't build any equity in thing so but nonetheless they went and they decide to get a mobile home so they took the money that a guy from the house they went to this mobile home manufacturing place and they bought one But they had to meet mortgage payments. Just like you know you would do on a house and so my The Guy who was there at the at the place he basically told my grandparents. Okay every month you bring your your payment to me and I will send it in to the And so they decide to do that. And so what you say is bring your money order because my grandfather always would go to post office and You get his paycheck. Get a cash. Go to the post office. Get a money order. My grandma would take the money order to the The Guy and he said well I'll feel it out for you so I can put all the information on it right and they did it for months and then they started getting letters that said you know Harrison. We haven't receive your payments allied and he took the my grandma and I would take a ladder to the guy and said I'll call them right now and find out what's going on. There's something wrong with their computer systems. Or whatever when on for a few more months then finally. It was a knock on the door. It was a sheriff in an. He's said Mr Miss Hairs. I'm to tell you but The bank is foreclosed on your home. And you're going to have you have until this time to move out. And they were devastated. Grandfather never really cried much had never saw. He's one of those you lose. All southern men just tough Grizzle Digest. It never cried and but that was one of the first times I saw my grandfather cry Because he would. He always believed in being diligent with his bills because his his father always told me to do that. We will. You always pay your bills and So we were. We were stuck on sleeping on couches and spare beds of friends and You know aunts cousins for a few months until my My grandma and you know as luck would have it. My grandfather also lost his job that the guy who ran the construction company rain for got ill and so they had to lay off all the folks on the companies and my grandfather also lost his job right around the same time and so finally we found this little place. Six forty four Green Street in Orangeburg. it was an a not a duplex triplex. Or something like that. And we had this one. Little two bedroom on the in and In my launch video. There's a picture of me walking in front of it. I mean it was didn't having the air conditioning Those little small cramp thing and But that's where we live for an all number of
COVID-19: What You Need To Know
"This is an ABC news special. Kobe nineteen what you need to know here is. Abc News correspondent. Aaron Katersky as this school year nears an end. Parents wonder about the start of the next academic year. We'll schools welcome kids back. What will the classroom look like or will there still be online? Learning the answers dependent part. On what the virus does to kids and how kids transmit the virus. The World Health Organization said over the weekend that children appear to be less capable of spreading corona virus than adults. The comment came from the. Who's chief scientist? Sumio Swaminathan who appeared on the BBC? What we have seen in countries where schools remained open is that they have not been big outbreaks in schools and where there have been seen associated with we defense. A lot of people gather not in regular classrooms and it's often been associated with Donald who's had infection and who spread it so it does seem from what we know now that children are less capable of spreading it even if they get infection and certainly are very low risk of getting from the Z's for more on what all of this may mean. We're joined by Dr Edith Bradshaw Sanchez. A pediatrician and professor of pediatrics. At Columbia University. What do you make of her comments here? I think some of the reports that we're seen in the comments that were seeing from the. Who are definitely reassuring. I just want more data so a number of things have gone into into these comments from what I understand and there are countries that have opened schools Germany Denmark Some parts of Canada in those countries are not seeing big outbreaks of covert nineteen in children linked to schools which is reassuring but we just need more data. These countries have also done a variety of things to keep kids safe in school Germany. For example we've rent reports that they are having children self test every four days and given a green sticker to kids test negative and allowing them to walk around the school without a mask on some schools are taking temperature. Some schools have introduced a variety of social distancing in hygiene techniques. So so when we look at this at these reports and we we look at the lack of outbreaks linked to children after they were allowed to go back to school. It is reassuring but we have to remember that there are measures that these countries have taken and that we don't have all of the information yet. Really the bottom line is can. My kids hug their grandparents. Yeah I think that's such an interesting point for a long time and longtime in the cove world is a few months for a long time. We've been thinking about children in terms of the risk that they pose to adults. We've been saying okay. Well my kid goes back to school. Can they? Then come home and bring me the corner virus or bring the current virus to to grandma and GRANDPA if they visit in now. Not only. Is it that that is very much too little consideration? But now we're starting to learn for example that there is a new rare but serious complication of covert nineteen seems to affect children very differently than an affects adults. And now I think that the conversation starting to switch to what is the risk to children themselves from Bo Bo from going back to school. What's the answer? I wish I had it but I just don't know we just don't know there are reports for example right there. There is a report of a child. I believe from England who was in the French Alps and then went home. Was In contact with seventy two people that child himself tested positive for current a virus. None of the seventy two people. He came into contact with tested positive. So that was reassuring but then we had another report of a six month old whose parents had couvert nineteen and the child had to be cared for in the hospital and so they were constantly testing this little baby six months old and he shut the virus at very high levels for sixteen days. The data so far has been mixed in. I think that's why it's so important that we collect more data in children and the NIH as you probably have heard launched a study at the beginning of May to follow two thousand families to try to answer this question. What exactly is the rate of transmission? What exactly is the risk to children because we just haven't been collecting the data yet. Pediatric Multi Symptom Inflammatory Syndrome. What do we make of that? Does it matter whether it specifically connected to cove it as the CDC seems to suggest that it is? I do believe that it is linked to covert nineteen. And I'll tell you why. This new syndrome seems to have some characteristics of Kawasaki disease but it also has some characteristics. Overlap toxic shock syndrome. And I'll explain very very briefly Kentucky Diseases and inflammatory condition. It is cost by inflammation and then the the blood vessels in the body are affected. Ultimately different organs can be affected. The one that we worry about is the heart children present with fever with the red. Is the rash The swollen hands feed swollen. Lymph nodes some of the same symptoms that we are now seeing in this new condition but the difference one of the many differences that we're still learning is that these children were presenting with the new syndrome also seemed to have some of those symptoms from toxic shock. They are very sick when they present to care. They sometimes have low blood pressures and signs that there multiple there's multiple organ systems that are affected. And that doesn't go with Kawasaki. Disease it also here before cove it so we can of spectacularly Why are they testing? Summer testing negative for the antibodies and the virus itself. And that is absolutely puzzling. But I think at the end of the day you just sort of have to take a step back and think okay well. Even if it's not linked terrific can't prove it yet for some of these kids remember them majority are testing positive. And where was this before cove
The coronavirus pandemic's impact on global mental health is "already extremely concerning
"This week we're talking about mental health not only may mental health awareness month but there are now some concerning statistics about what's happening during this pandemic for example a recent. Kaiser Family Foundation poll found nearly half of all Americans say the pandemic is harming their mental health. In some way and crisis lines are reporting significant increases in calls in fact a federal emergency line saw a one thousand percent increase in April compared to the same time just last year so joining me to talk about. What's happening what we can do about. It is licensed therapist Katie Morton. She not only runs a private practice in California but she also reaches a worldwide audience through her youtube channel with nearly a million subscribers and she wrote the book are you okay a guide to caring for your mental health. So here's our conversation about mental health during a pandemic. Hi Katie. Thanks so much for coming on the newsworthy. Yeah thanks for having me so first. What's your reaction to these types of statistics that we're hearing right now to be honest. I'm not surprised. Were stuck in this stress response. I mean all of us. I think would admit even if we didn't have a mental health issue prior to this. We're feeling a little bit more anxious a little bit more stressed out and worried and so it's no wonder that we're finding those rates. Go Up. This has been going on for much longer than most of US anticipated and not. Everybody knows how to cope with that. So what are a couple of the main issues first of all? This is nothing we've experienced before so I think the unknown is really really scary for people and the most common things that I'm hearing from my audience and patients alike are just the worry thoughts. I think we can all agree that we're worried about today tomorrow. A year from now and those worry thoughts. I mean if you don't know generalized anxiety disorder is diagnosed by the uncontrollable worry. Like no matter. What we do we just keep worrying and you think a lot of us would admit that we're feeling that right now and so. That's probably the most common symptom as well as My patients who tend to be more on the depressed side are struggling to have hope for the future. Because we don't know what's going to happen and I think that's the main issue when it comes to this this particular pandemic this particular issue is. We're learning new things every day so we don't always feel like we have all the information needed to figure that out to feel okay to be able to soothe ourselves and say it's going we're going to get through this a lot of us worry about not being able to. I've heard the analogy that you can push yourself during a marathon or something because you know where the end is. We don't really know the end is with this. How much of an impact does that have? I believe it's making it like twice as bad like you know when you're doing a workout new like ten more and you're like I could do ten more but if they don't say anything you might stop early you're like I just can't keep doing this. And so my worry about the lake not knowing when it's going to end not knowing the future in a very dark view. I think we'll see suicide rates. Go up which I know. Sounds TERRIBLE. But it's just a reality and something that we should be aware of. We should check in on people in our lives But also I think it leads to increased anxiety and panic attacks right. Because we don't have the wherewithal to say you know what they said in two weeks. We'll be okay can just hang on 'til then so it just this extended period of feeling unsure and uneasy can can exacerbate all the things we've been talking about and curious your take on guilt in comparison about how bad it is. I think if I'm having a bad day I I'm like well I still have my job. At least I still have my health so I feel guilty for having a bad day. What do you say about that? Yeah I've been feeling that too like hey I haven't lost anybody. How dare I even feel anything? That's akin to saying because they're starving kids in some other parts of the world that it's not okay for me to Sam full and throw out that last night or something and I think one of my favorite quotes is comparison is the thief of joy. And I know that that doesn't apply directly to this. Oh it's taking away. The joy but comparison is never helpful. Someone's always going to have it worse. That doesn't negate how you feel just because someone else is going through tough situation doesn't mean that you don't have the right to feel upset. Are there any less obvious side effects? I know I've heard people talk about. I'm just have less energy or I can't be productive. That sort of thing yeah. Concentration difficulties are huge. And that's actually one of the most overlooked symptoms of things like depression anxiety and I think a lot of us. Because we're in this heightened stress response our body is like primed for fight flight freeze but instead of being able to do anything right because the the threat is a invisible virus. We feel stressed. All Day long hyper vigilant may be you know an on edge and so of course. We're not able to do as much as we used to do. We may be can't remember what we just read and also we can be tired by like two. Pm Every day yeah. So let's talk about tips and tricks to handle some of what we're feeling right now. Can you go through a few of the main things that you're telling people right now? The one thing that we do know is that true connection with people in our lives in person is the real antidote to that stress. Response that we're experiencing so if we can safely and selectively do that. I think we'll all feel a little bit better if you're not able to leave right now and do that like selective engagement. The Zoom facetime phone calls texting. That will do. It's not ideal but it will do And then another is just having some kind of structure to your day. I doesn't mean we have to have twenty five things on our to do list. I'm talking like two or three things like I get up around this time. Let's say between like I duNno eight. Am Ten NAM. Depending on how you are your morning person or not and then I make myself breakfast. I have my coffee and then I make time during the day for some kind of movements exercise having some kind of structure to it and then I stopped work at like six. Pm let's say keeping that structure will keep us kind of going and give us some kind of beginning middle and end to our day so it's kind of important to keep that And then distract when you need to. If you find yourself worrying and inspiring into the whole my God. I don't know what about this. And what about my grandma and then my friend? You need to start doing that. Trust me. I've been there too It's completely okay to to get up to move around to organize something I mean. I think that's why people were making banana. Bread and sourdot starters. It's really just a way to distract and there is a place in time for that to And then the final is something that I've been kind of going through this week. I guess is just allowing yourself to grieve. It's okay to feel sad. It's okay to feel upset about this The more we fight it the more out of control. Those feelings can be so. I've been setting aside the sound really weird by setting aside like thirty minutes just to feel sad and then I'll make that. I'm going to get up distract Paul myself out of it. I do something else But we don't have to ignore those feelings altogether because they're they're they're real. It's palpable right. Every where so those are just a few ways to kind of get yourself on track and keep you feeling your best final takeaway for the audience or anything else you want to add. I think my last thing is just to be kind and compassionate to yourself and others were all having a hard time If someone seems a little agitated irritable know that it has nothing to do with you. It's all to do with this situation. So breathe be kind. You know I think that that will go a long way and all kind of manage. But we'll get through this and this is the one and only time where we are
"grandma" Discussed on The Ross Bolen Podcast
"Our guest for August. Is My grandma Beverly Bowl in my grandmother. She's going to be joining us over the phone today for a conversation about life as she approaches ninety fucking years old ninety nine zero she turns ninety on next Friday literally a week Friday September sixth. My grandma's ninetieth birthday. She's GonNa share some of her wealth of wisdom with us. Today hopefully share some secrets to life with all of us. We can try to be a little bit more light. My grandma because she is a kick ass saint For some background. If you've never heard me speak on my grandma before so my dad's mom okay She grew up with like ten brothers and sisters and Michigan like Holland Michigan Like I said she's about to turn ninety. She was very much Her and my grandpa were the the the I guess like team captains of my family On that side. Obviously on my Dad's side. They had their house in. Taylor on Taylor. Lake served as like the meeting point for our whole family so every Christmas every Thanksgiving every fourth of July every Easter. We went to their big ass house with their indoor pool. It's one story super old school house like a big house. But one story indoor pool on the lake fucking baller and I mean all the food you could ever want to eat all the booze you ever WanNa drink everything you could ever want. That house to me became the American dream in every fucking possible. Facet of the of the phrase. It did it that became the goal on like getting emotional. Just thinking about it but it did that well. My grandma was able to achieve in when my GRANDPA was able to achieve with her. That is what I want for my life so this woman has served for me as a beacon. The entire time that I've lived as one of the nicest people that I've ever met in and she's made me feel so loved blessed in like I could do anything. My Mind's eye life so that is the reason I wanted to my grandma on on August Again you'll have to excuse me for getting emotional but the ladies fucking awesome. She's fantastic. She's she's funny I'm I'm I've never caught her in a bad mood. I've never caught her on a date. I'm in a bad mood like ninety percent of the time. If you know he will You know you can be bitchy but this woman complete fucking opposite And in I just can't wait to share her again with Y'all she came on last year during call your grandparents month in August or whatever and It was fucking awesome. I believe it was last year. So she's back again this year as I was saying of. I've collected myself now. That house. We're we're all my cousins. My aunts and my uncles would gather for every holiday when we'd have twenty people and they're eating these huge meals that sorta it'd be it just gave me this perfect vision of what you could achieve if you worked at it if you worked hard in if you raised your family correctly with good morals and values and if you gave them the love and if you gave everybody in your family the love and support they needed. I saw this could be the outcome. And now that's not to say that it's perfect. It's fucked in many ways My parents marriage fell apart eventually They're all all kinds of random issues throughout my family. That are just like any other family but the difference is I knew no matter what happened. That house was there it was it was like a foundation for all those people. No matter happened to them. What was going on in our lives. We would go to my grandma and GRANDPA's house for whatever the reason for whatever the Holiday Inn. It didn't matter what else was going on. You came together as a family and you loved and you learned and celebrated whatever the occasion was and that was it. You didn't bring your outside bullshit. You didn't mistreat anybody. You didn't caused drama. I'm sure I did some at some point in my teenage years I apologize. I can't really remember. But the woman said the example for me her in in in in in my dad has a result Because of the way she was she raised him my mom. I've been very lucky to be surrounded by incredibly supportive increase in Hashtag. Incredible people My grandma being one of my favorites ever so I'm rambling without further ADO. Let's give a ring. My Grandma Beverly Bolan here she is. Hey Grandma's Russ Yeah doing. It's always great to hear from you. It's always good to hear from you too. It's funny I was just telling our producer grant that I've done like four hundred podcast episodes and I still get nervous talking to you that I think just because I wanted to go so well I think that's it. Oh so I was thinking the same thing because you know I did radio and then the television and I thought okay. This is a breeze exactly South America also. Because I wanted to be good. I know what you here's the thing. It will be good every time I have ever spoken to you in my entire life has been good. Why would this time be any different? Exactly exactly I know so. Let's just be ourselves. That's what I always told guests. Can you're sitting in the living room talking okay? Well then we'll do it that way. I I do have questions for you though because we're coming up on a very important occasion for you ninety years of life. I know I should be very wise right. I think you are. I think most wise person. I'm aware of skills learning. That's what's so exciting. That's what makes you never stop learning exactly which surprises me. You know when you start out you think you know everything and then as you go along you realize you do not and thank goodness you keep learning would probably so far in my life probably three or four different points where I thought I knew everything and then realized a wait a minute. I don't know anything at all your ninety years. Deep if you had to pick one or two sort of. I don't know grandma like keys. To import owned young people to have a successful life. Like what. What would you say a couple pieces of advice would be well that thing that I think I tried to do and I is be nice to everyone? Everyone whether they're going to promote you or whether they're just going to help you or whether they're you want to help them and I think that's the thing that's always been so impressive to me about you though. Grandma is that you're so kind and caring with every single person that you come across and I'll be honest with you. I try to take as much as I can from you because I look up to you so much but that's one of the areas that I struggle because people can be very frustrating in infuriating. Yet you never seem to miss a beat with a nice yard everybody. How do you do that because as you know I grew up with a family of eleven children you have to learn to get along? Levin you know with that many children and my parents were great. They made all of us. All of us feel very loved and special and they made us all feel. Because we've talked about that later that they would always be there for it and I tried to impart that on my three sons. You know please make your children feel loved and that they'll you will always be there for a very important thing I think. How many brothers and sisters did you have? I had seven sisters. Imagine growing up with seven women or goodness girls and tape rabbit. How did you parents go bell accomplish because today in two thousand nineteen only a completely insane person would try to have that many kids with how expensive childcare and everything is? What was that dynamic? Light growing up because that's so rare now. I had the best childhood and my brothers and sisters say the same thing it was just I was thinking I read through something clearing out papers about the my sister just below me. Who was two years younger? My Best Buddy and something. I had written to her about our walking to the woods and picking butter cups and Pussy willows 'em violets and the woods wasn't too far from our home is in Michigan and then coming home and there were Lilac Bushes and could sit in the middle of them. It was just wonderful times like that. So and the SPART N my father and mother well as I said just made us all feel very loved and I don't know how they did it but I think if you're fortunate to live in a family that is so caring then you'll have a great start in life you know. I wonder how differently you woulda turned out if you were an only child. Well that is interesting isn't it? You know I don't know I don't know. And you know your grandfather also encouraged me. I was very shy but I love journalism like you apparently did and loved riding. I wrote Editor of the feature page of the school newspaper and the sports Writer or editor of the sports page asked me to write the girls sports column and I just loved it so I don't but I was shy. I was very shy and very tall and very skinny. You Know I. I was a late bloomer. So was I think so I was? I didn't bloom into pro. I grew like a foot. My Sophomore Year of high school. I think is when I really finally grew. Well I just always thought you a wonderful so I guess personality wise. I always thought you were wonderful. I can just see you now at all different stages but your grandfather after I had the three little boys He encouraged me. He just he would say things like most guys would not say. You're smarter than I am. I was not smarter than he was. He was a chemical engineer from produce and But he started traveling for Monsanto for business and he would be gone three weeks at a time. I had these three little boys and for the weekends. He'd go to Morocco or Paris or Switzerland or something and I decided I needed to be interesting for this man who was doing all these exciting things. Oh yeah that yeah. That's when I started heaven only knows. How did I think I do that but I My Mentor Said this radio station doesn't have a woman. Just go in there and tell them you need that and then later it was the other the television but grandfather that encouraged me talk about doing GRANDPA's marriage a little bit if you would. How many first of all. How many years were you married fifty five? Wow but yeah. That is a very long time. How did you keep each other happy? And so in love all of those years. Some people can't make it like one year I know and I think it That respect for each other you know respect each other plus I can remember Ross and my brain one time when I was mad said Okay Stop that craziness you love them. You want to be with them. Just wrap it up and stop this fighting you know and and that's basically it we just we were mad and love and But we fought just like everybody else..
"grandma" Discussed on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show
"Original song with frozen to the disk version of into the unknown. Elvis Duran what is it with these people Elvis Duran in the morning show so I this ritual. Every Sunday I sit down with my ipad and read the New York Times and read news. I read a lot of reading Sunday's as being there was an article I read this weekend. I thought was so interesting. I actually shared it with Gandhi odd because I thought I. I didn't know if you want if you had an opinion on it but Daniel remember the the text books that we had in highschool no of course of course right. There was an article in Creighton. If I'm wrong I get things wrong. There was an article out about how students students. Let's say high school students in California are getting the same exact textbook for social studies as students in Texas from the same publisher from the same writer. Okay but they have different text to fit the community the community values they think in also how people vote. Oh either Democrat Republican in those states. It's the same exact book but it's edited for the region. It goes to. That's interesting but isn't isn't that kind of alter one hundred percents it does it slightly tweaked weeks history a little bit like you'll have conversation about a racial tensions shins and a whole list of everything that our country's gone through in the past two hundred years. It gives a different viewpoint depending on the region where the book is his distributed I thought that was very odd. Feel like that should be criminal. I mean everyone should be learning the same stuff and if you have to put in both sides of the argument the put in both sides of the argument vehement but don't choose which side you're going to present to an indirect state. That's crazy to me. It makes me think back to going to high school in Texas. We had Texas history. I don't know if you guys have state or regional history in New York or Texas. Of course you know. It's a state where we always thought we should be our country. It's own thing so so we had Texas history and I'm recalling now the texts that we read through the Texas history books about how who owned the WHO owned the land win. Who who was there first? And who got it through war got it through thievery. Who got it through purchasing and it makes me stop and go God will not only Texas history but what what else was I taught in high school? That probably is leaning a certain way. That isn't all the facts. Christopher Columbus Spooky all that kind of stuff I mean. I think that there are so many things that as we grow older. I mean there's an entire book that has been very popular lies. My teacher told me and I think that it's really sad that we're learning as adults that a lot of stuff we learned to Stillman just not true well and here I am a fifty five year old guy just now learning a lot of stuff I learned learned in high school probably was somewhat factual but they were leaving other facts out. That's crazy I'm not. I'm not saying it was complete lies but at the point where you're not getting the whole truth. No it should just be facts and that's it opinions at all. Are you know no steering you in one direction. That's ridiculous There was a I. I don't WanNa go out on a limb here because I don't remember names. There was a Broadway play done by an actor Hispanic. It was great was on yes. We saw that. What's that called? We saw hold on. Let me look at its Spanish history for dummies or something like that. It was a Broadway play and they actually traveled the country with and it was tremendous went to see it with Enrico Santos. He took me anyway. It really gives you a wide wide ranging. Look at the history of America. North America South America like who was here first and how many people were destroyed when people from from from Europe came over and brought all this disease wiped out. I have never understood how you can say. You discovered a land where people already lived. Y- it had been discovered and settled shows of your apartment today. I discovered this. The name of the show is Latin. History for morons onto. I believe you can actually see it on. You can stream it. I believe Netflix has called for someone. Has It okay. It was really really truly interesting to hear his version and historically correct versions as we're now learning of who we are where we're from. Who really found this place in? who was run on out of it? Yup in all the way back to the Mayans I mean it goes. It's fascinating history is just so fascinating and so intriguing and their stories. You can learn through history but it's nice to know that you can get all sides of the story I can. I can handle the good and the bad but Gimme the good and the bad. Don't give me what you think is the good interesting even like World War Two stuff right if you read the American version of what happened and then you read Russian versions of what happened very very different. We're on the same side. I'd be upset if I knew my thought. My kids were learning this way. I don't think that's happening. Where we live now probably are yeah? We keep keep in mind when you when you. I'm assuming this when you publish a Students Textbook You only have so much room so much real estate to fill so then and you have to pick and choose what comes out. Yeah Okay you want to stick to the facts. There's some some things in the things that you pull out may depending on who edits. That is editing. And what they think is the most important history terrifying the only way to combat. This is to get out and learn different perspective. That's really the only way to do it. So that's why when you and Here we go when you watch CNN or if you watch Fox I blatantly. It's blatant to me. How they lean it to the left or lean into the right place? We're all guilty. In in my opinion I've yet to find network news that I really truly can believe with one hundred percents certainty indy. I was talking to my girlfriend the other night and she was ice was telling you what I was hearing and she goes. That's because you're watching this network Gauri other network you'll hear the other and I was like. Wow she's right. So what do you do. Do you have to watch all networks and just trying to make up your mind. Somewhere in the middle skepticism is important. It is skeptical. Always ask questions. Where did it come from? uh-huh who's telling me this look who's telling you something you can get a lot out of that for instance me talking to you right now. It's all BS..

The coupled with you earning the rain I don't I don't I don't people say oh you're so loud you're so forward you're so no I'm I'm a scaredy cat when it comes to taking care of issues issues I don't love confrontation but almost always I feel better after it's happened and I stood up for myself with something that's been bothering me for a while so it might not be great but it's necessary Harry sometimes. Yeah I agree and then you actually feel the sense of accomplishment after going in your tackle that problem I did that. The problem is is when you're gearing up to go take care of something that's uncomfortable to voice in your head is what gets you all nuts percent. You know what I'm saying. You actually you since yourself yourself into a hundred dollars you play out like all the different scenarios that it could go this way. It could go this way and it always does the way you didn't plan call those shower conversations in the conversations you have in the shower. Those are the ones that lead to talk destruction in the head and I always have a better idea when I could've said after it's over of course. I think we all do that. Only if you had a friend called I just had the worst conversation with bub-bubba what happened. Well I tell you what I should have said. Why are you telling me that should have what it coulda?.

Don't give them money. They'll buy drugs kind of falls. You know what I mean. They're out there. So when Chase Hanson was only four years old. He asked his father John Why some people had to live on the streets and instead of just telling Him Dad said Nope we're going to make this a teachable moment. So the boy. We started conversations with these homeless people and would take them out for lunch once or twice a week and they learned a lot of things for example. One guy became homeless after a divorce and he chose to live year round in a tent through he could be closer to his sons. Aw rather than moving with family okay. So there's so much to learn. It's been several years and over. One hundred in fifty lunches later and the pair has started a social awareness charity. It's called project empathy. You could follow along on facebook.

"What a great weekend asked me what I did this. I have no clue. Oh I don't know it was just one of those weekends where I just didn't do one monumental thing to do nothing we can. Do you know we were gone for two weeks for the holidays I still. I have not opened my bags. They open it. I haven't unpacked my bags. That musty smell and everything the walk. Let's not assume that they already had toothpaste and the toothbrush in my in my bathroom. Deodorant leftover from last year. I'm using last year's deodorant. Look don't you just have things like I bring my travel toothbrush and then I throw it out. I don't bring it home. Oh never more of a larger thing. It's like all my clothes were packed. Yeah I'm with you mine is open but it is sitting like an open face sandwich in the corner of living out like you're living in hotel room you're living out of your suitcase. Sort of yeah.

"Thanks rephrasing of that way That happened. I can't believe that happened. I know happened. It's so nice for us to have that I. I know we've been talking about doing version of this way before I can start if you were going to do it on. We're going for years. We're going to record her on film and there's more ah there's more that I want to get out of her of course but We have a lot of videos. We take a lot of videos and also you know what I really WanNa do. We talk about what does that. I would love to context Sony. We've been meaning to do this for so long and try to get around. Yeah it's getting harder. It's getting harder to for to get around like it's her body is it's definitely failing. Her eyes are failing her years or feel like things are are well are like not working as well as they used to but her brain as far as I can see is to still I know it feels like it's just as sharp as my brain. Yeah I a lot older than my friends. I saw a week ago and it was actually a weird compliment. I gave myself as smart marist. No sharp as me what you meant not not that. I'm not sharp now. It was more about your age right. It was so interesting to me because it's my grandmother and I was learning things about her that I never knew so. That alone was fascinating and just the fact that we got into this little studio in Florida Ham. She sat there for a couple of hours and and had the energy to do it. Like a little thing what I kept asking if she wanted him. All of that was was so impressive to me but I couldn't help but wonder if it would be the ad all interesting to anybody else who didn't know her because you know. She's not a celebrity and that in the show we have accomplished Known People Online. Alright so I don't know I still don't know if it if it is going to translate it. It may not for many people I think it might go to hear from. I know she was talking about the things that I saw way back in the day and the the the four line iceman man cometh. It was funny funny. Oh yeah well some things that I didn't know she made up Nell. Oh I didn't know that. She had a brother who died at six months. Her Height didn't know her father had red curly hair. I didn't know how she met. GRANDPA died in no that her mother was basically raised by rich people. I didn't either. I didn't know that her favorite ice cream was coconut pineapple. I mean that's the lesson again. I think everyone should while they're there. elderly relatives are still with us. They should take the time to chronicle not necessarily interview them informal way but ask them these questions ask about their lives while you can and they'd probably really appreciate it. I'm sure I'm just GonNa read you things that That she was born before four. She's born before electric refrigerators. She was born before the pop up toaster. Choose burn before Nathan hand workers. So the first. Nathan's hot dog at Coney Island before we entered World War One before Woodrow Wilson sent troops into Mexico to pursue Pancho via before daylight savings time went into effect. So that's why the world to see the world old through her lens must be and it's amazing. She doesn't text fine but she emails She has a kid can do skype. She knows how to Rent Library. Books onto your kindle kindle. Yeah and she knows how to email. It's really funny. She's so few things on her wall. She's all pictures of like family but very prominently displayed as a a cut out of the newspaper paper from an advertisement for going the distance. This movie I did with Drew Barrymore in town. It's all like yellow now. It's not even liking frame. It's just I tape tapes. It's really sweet and yeah She was very excited to meet drew. I remember when she she may of course be also so I mean Drew Barrymore. That's true my was a fan for grant yeah. She was a fan of her grand uncles. In fact John. Barrymore was the reason. The Term Matinee idol exists at women would When their husbands this is back in the day so that when and they'd go to work women would stay home and they would go to the movies during the day? They go see matinees and they'd see the handsome actors and and John. Barrymore was the first one to whom the term matinee idol was going for him. She's talking about her father coming over and getting seasick on the way from Italy and and and that was a main reason he didn't want to go back and go back home she's like I'm not going back a long. Was it again. It was like ten miles. It was a longtime which not. I don't blame seasick. I'm sure I would too but it made me realize in think about something that I think about often. How unlikely it is for us to be alive? Well for us to be US for us. Yeah Digress I was thinking about it with them but but just think if our great grandfather whom I had a stronger stomach Make let's say and didn't get seasick and had gone back to Italy. We wouldn't be talking right now. I mean it's something that simple and then again. I was reminded of it when she was talking about her husband having the problem with his ear and failing the medical exam not able to world war. Two that very well could have couldn't have caught. That can come the Promo GRANDPA would have not have all these little things along the way that it's a miracle and then you think a medical that we're alive and thinking that way and reminding myself self of miracle always makes me feel so much better and less scared of of like Neil degrasse Tyson saying less scared of. You've not not being alive because it's unlikely that I know are and so just two inch and again yet. Another reason another highlight another another way to amplify like how important it is. That's what I love about these letters like people like. I just want to enjoy this time. I WanNa do what I can. And if that means like getting getting mentally well and going to therapy if that means taking up fucking fly fishing and finding happiness is so yeah idol. uh-huh also interesting fat. I thought you were going to say how the chance that we'd be like Italian review like attempt Italian like rural we wouldn't be Italian Italian countryman. Now we wouldn't we wouldn't be we wouldn't be we wouldn't be. It's just I mean it's that simple. I'll get everything has has to happen in a very specific well. That's why I wonder if again to get back to your first point is this. Is this more interesting selfishly for us because this is about our genesis. I mean this is about. I'm sure I mean specifically but it is definitely more interesting but like is it at all interesting if you're not I don't know well I mean it's interesting to me just like something. Like she was talking about her mother dying at a young age and her father having these three girls post to raise all by himself and he became very very strict and wouldn't let 'em became very protective and wouldn't let Mike is our grandmother. You know do do anything danger remotely dangerous and as a result we see direct results. Our Grandmother had our mother and she instilled that a certain level of in our mother and now in a cause away has resulted in us being scared of ice skating. Yeah it's why it's this is such an interesting topic This is why empathy is important. And like this is sort of like a quirky neurotic. Thing that we have but a deeper more tragic trauma can be passed onto that. They've documented that from the Holocaust we know people are generation who whom it's still affecting this tragedy of people in trauma family gets we'll get passed passed down now. I wonder if like where the fact that we valued to sense of humor or or where somebody's proclivities like you confront like personnels come from his heart. No it's hard to know. She's funny. She's funny the way. She handles telemarketers she. She says she gets it from you but I don't think so. I think that's really clever. where she acts senile one hundred and two year old woman acting senile to outsmart telemarketers? It was one of the best thing I've ever heard. Say it's really hard to beat that. Yeah it was really sad to hear her talk about losing her mom and I realized I never was especially sad because for my entire life grandma has been an old person so I always saw her as someone who has had things figured out and it was settled emotionally with with her issues and soda here her vulnerable and and to hear her talking about a time in her life where shoes young and trying to figure things out and and so hurt by this thing. That happened was really hard to hear. I thought it was really hard for me to hear and kind give joy in a way because I had never seen that vulnerability from her in my life. I don't think that's true. And it completely explained any of her Formerly annoying characteristics like being overly concerned and neurosis It made me see her. Maybe see are much more clearly than ever. Yeah there's so many things that made me laugh at. I don't know if people are going to like I identify with but she's afraid of getting in trouble the law because her father fudged birth certificate by day. She didn't say that someone she's getting in trouble at one hundred I love that. You kinda tricked her into cannot imagine into your shoes. I over not recording a interesting. I gotta say this again opposite Backfire. Backfired I know he's comfortable. Yeah talking about her girlfriend Lou. Her Platonic -irlfriend Ron Lou. Her about emojis. I see them but I don't know how they get there. There's some there's some lines that made me laugh so hard. How about mom getting proposition proposition by uncle? Oh yeah that was news things. I never thought I'd hear from five hundred Alex I I was so curious to know more about that but I don't want to know more about that but that's crazy. I want to know what the proposition why now. I hope it was just like. Do you want to go see a movie when she mis thread it. Yeah maybe back. Then the position meant something different than it means now impose. It was like when gay applied to the town. Fair her talking about dying and She said you know she said in such a simple way and it made me realize she's been wrestling the idea of life and death and religion all these things for over one hundred years and what she had the way she thinks about it is she said you know you've got here you know that you don't know what you've got there right and I feel safer believing the knob leaving..

Women of depression came when my father finally got laid off and then I realized how can I go to college. Daddy won't have any money. Oh Oh so. Do you regret that. Not going yeah.

Grandma void going into the war because because he wasn't drafted because of his ear condition and that was a condition that almost then kill do well the first couple of weeks that we were home after after we were married he got the awful cold and he couldn't get rid of it and I went through the phone book at the doctors. You know. They're only about two pages of doctors. Finally they found this doctor lowly in the girl said yeah bring them in today so while we were waiting in the waiting room to get in to see the doctor this other guy was sitting there and he's boy. This is the best doctor. And he was the one that did member the Prince of Wales that married that divorcee Wallis Wallis smoker and they sent him to. Dr Lowy was in Budapest or wherever you want. And he operated on him a while so he was very good and so when we got there the nurse the nurse said where you came to the right doctor so we pay I picked. Well Yeah and so in those days it was like just a few dollars and you paid as you walked out and there's no builds no insurance nothing the best actor and and so we stayed with him one day He was real nervous about this year. I don't know if that whole has been growing this past year or for the last forty years so he said the best thing to do is I've got to operate on his ear and and I've got to do it as soon as possible. So he cleaned it all out. You know up until that time your grandfather and two washes ear out every day and then put this cotton here. God and every day he'd take that cap now go stink. Thaw stuff was coming out. Oh my doctor had told his mother as long as the stuff comes out your okay. Oh when it stops coming out then if you're in trouble and that means it was going some. Yeah it's the brace so anyhow. He cleaned him out. So there was no more danger of that going to the abrasive Dr Lowest so you could save his life. Yeah Wow and then when he wanted to retire he chose six names of his list of patients and he asked them to come to the University of Rochester. Once a month whenever they had to come because he wanted to take take care. Take care of your grandma addity. He had his keep seen this and So we thought well we'll be with them a long time.

The freeway could have been like you know five fucking feet off. That's what's like such a bummer. So frustrating and because this guy Essentially be they're commissioned down the freeway so the so the dig is called off and there's something so especially sinister the fact that he this. This was the plan all along because when when he was working on this freeways basically he would time his murders knowing that they were about to go do now Basically be building these things things so yeah the night before he would go dig the hole and then put his his murder victims in these graves and then the next day it would all get covered over by cement and freeways pets the creepiest thing. I've ever it's so it's like the the original freeway killer Miller story where it's like just bad vibes like that's what this is all a bad down here. That's what this fucking creepy road rage. E arrows it was it was all rule that rural back. Then yes and like it was all families trying to come out here and make a difference and you know. Make their away. Isn't it wasn't Hollywood Renault.

It's a big sprawling. You know anonymous city yet. That's growing wing. Yeah gotta be. The freeway aspect is so chilling and also the way he did it where somehow he was able to Get in and out of these places unseen an unnoticed. He's like just kind of the master of that thing where however he did it and the idea yeah. The Tommy Bowman was crying when he was walking. That's a man was behind him. Clearly he knew how to very quickly like win the favor of and then intimidate. HSA Or is it a time and a place where you mind your own fucking business and so no one is noticing these things and it's just a kid crying and upset and I don't think I mean Dad yes none of your business right.

Brach is just awareness of what you're thinking so that you can change your thought patterns so if I'm standing there and my habit is mentally mentally yell at people maybe just put the pause on that and see what's actually happening around meet that could be enjoying instead of being in my thoughts negatively. Okay and I'm standing. I realize I'm standing next to a huge display of pajamas. And they're they kind of cozy and they're like flannel red plaid pajamas.

I'm the kind of person people walk up to until random. Yes okay one hundred percent sent it can keep myself present. Okay and that is I have to remind myself. I love that the way she told me that story. And as as if it was vital information to know that was going to help me decide whether or not it was going to get these pajamas I was just like yes and then she can get as she walked away all they. I wasn't thinking of them really for me as it was conceptual. But I was like Cham- Christmas. My sister always gets me pajamas and slippers at the best fucking gifts for people.

It's a big round number, but these days more and more people are ripening to that grand old age. Katie made a huge carrot and pumpkin seed cake and placed one hundred Campbell's on it. While the family sign, happy birthday grandma was on the point of snapping her fingers to snuff out the blaze with magic. But before she could do that, katie's mum held her hand and said. No mother. You have got to use your path you up blessed indeed to have plenty laughed. So grandma spent ten minutes blowing out all one hundred candles when they were all drinking tea. Katie sat on the floor by her grandma's chair and asked, what were you like when you might grandma squinted her eyes and said, well, I wasn't so different from you. Dear. Did you go to school? Asked Katie. And did you have to pretend to be normal without any magic Powis? Oh, yes. Said grandma by parents were very strict about me not doing any magic at school. In those days, you could get into an awful lot of trouble for being a witch. It was still against the law. What was your school like asked Katie. It was a school with a very good reputation. Said grandma, a boarding school. I was very fortunate to go there or so. My parents told me, although we were not that well off, I won a scholarship and my uncle who made money, importing magic spices helped out with the expenses. Oh, do tell me what it was like begged Katie. Did you like boarding? Not very much, said grandma. I missed my mother and father, but if you insist all tell you the whole story one day when they're on so many people around Katie was extremely eager to hear the story of grandma schooldays when grandma had had chance to recover from all the celebrations. She talked round to house. This is what rand Maher told Katie the school within a large country house with extensive grounds. Most of the girls arrived by steam train. But my mother and I flew by broomstick we had to travel by night was not to be seen, and I accidentally landed in a haystack when I arrived at the school in the morning, the first thing may consent to me was what's this girl? Did you sleep in a haystack? I wondered if she could read minds, but in fact, all that attack happened was that she had spotted a piece of straw in my hair, which was docking Tang Li like yours by the way. Most of the other goals were crying because they did not want to leave their mothers. I was strong though because I knew I had a tiny crystal ball in the heel, my shoe and in an absolute emergency, I could call home no ever go had that chance. In those days, we could write letters, but they were censored by the headmistress mother kissed me goodbye and told me that the twelve weeks of Thome would flypast as fast as Phoenix as soon as she left. Everyone started calling me by my family name which was white. There was some goals who had titles like lady or the honorable miss so-and-so. The teaches cooled them by their surnames to, but never harshly just to show that they understood they were from the top draw. Suit, speak. Eighteen lessons. We had to learn a lot of things by heart, such as the names of all the rivers in England Wales. Fortunately, I was used to learning long spells, so I was good at that. I picked up French and Latin easily. For the same reason. Maths was my weakest subject because, well, we would choose don't use logic so much. Now world. Two plus two does not necessarily make fool, and that's a disadvantage for mental arithmetic. With the other girls snooty grandma asks Katie. Well, some of them came from very well to do families. They had way of letting you know it was quite subtle. They just spoke to you in a tone that was slightly full moon cold to make it clear that friendship
