"Football is a sport where we see players regularly get injured this season, the greatest concerns for player safety are about health conditions. We can't even see taking place as in the potential transmission of covert 19, but Great news so far among all players, coaches and team personnel who were tested last Thursday, when the season kicked off in Kansas City between the Chiefs and Titans. Nobody tested positive. Nobody. However, a groundskeeper at Arrowhead Stadium did test positive for covert 19, but reportedly did not have any contact with players. These air the first known results of covert testing since the NFL season began.
Ice Age Temperatures Help Predict Future Warming
"How. Much colder wasn't at the peak of the last ice age that's a question. Scientists have been trying to answer for decades, and now they have a new best guess eleven degrees Fahrenheit. That's a lot especially considering it's a global average parts of North America. We're much colder first of all large areas of the northeast were completely under ice. So that would have been pretty chilly wouldn't be living there but even here in the West right where we weren't covered by an ice, she would have been something like twenty degrees. Fahrenheit Lower Jessica tyranny a Paleo climatologist at the University of Arizona tyranny and her colleagues spent years compiling information about. Earth's climate at the height of the last glacial period about twenty thousand years ago. So we obviously don't have to Ramadan in the glacial periods. So we have to instead look for these kinds of standing indicators. One kind of stanton is plankton that lived in the ocean and got preserved in marine sediments. Scientists use these fossils to infer past ocean temperatures by studying changes in the chemistry of their shells and in the kinds of fats and other compounds they produced. Tyranny and her team then combine these data with a climate model to give a full picture of glacial conditions. It's actually technique us every day whether forecasting. What's new is we're using it for the past not the future. So we're actually hind casting if you will rather than forecasting the study is in the journal Nature. The findings suggest that the last ice age was significantly colder than scientists thought and that matters today the reason that. We want to know how cold last ice ages beyond the fact that it's just a cool thing to know. Is that we can actually use it to understand a quantity called climate sensitivity climate sensitivity is a measure of how much the planet warms in response to rising greenhouse gases. In this long ago case, we know how much carbon dioxide concentrations increased between the last ice age in preindustrial period from air bubbles trapped in ancient ice, and now we have tyrannies new results on the temperature difference between glacial and interglacial conditions. Together, these data suggest that low end estimates of climate sensitivity in which greenhouse gases don't cause much warming are unlikely to be correct if we have low climate sensitivity than than, we would be less worried about what all the missions are going to do. And so we can kind of rule those those possibility out know I suppose that's that's not great news.

To see the fall colors you can read them and much more at RV, lifestyle dot com new content on the blog every single day. So make sure you check it lots great resources there. I have an update on what we talked about last week at the beginning of the show, we talked about some of the RV issues that we have experienced with our new RV, and we got some good news the inverted failure. while. We were on battery power. It had kind of stumped I suspected it was a fuse but I wasn't sure. So we drove over to our friends at Holland motorhomes in Holland Michigan on Monday and sure enough. It was the fuse that is between the investigator and our to battle born lithium batteries that fused blue and a blue, and we turned on the microwave when we're operating under battery power in the RV and should've worked. So we were all pretty confusing the microwave takes about fifteen hundred amps but we have. Two thousand amps in the inverted wind blow we we know we didn't always diffused blue I was a little concerned to look over. We'll eighth looked at over and in about thirty seconds diagnosed it. They're wrong. Size fuse was put in at the factory. Apparently, the few should have been two, hundred, fifty amps and instead it was a one hundred and fifty amp fuse. So we swapped it out for the right size fuse and my service. Tackett Holland. Said you know that these things happen. They just put the wrong size fuse in and he even left me with a spare fuse. Should it ever happen again and that's nice to know because that's the most important thing for us to be named operate with our lithium batteries when we are not plugged in and we're off the grid, we tend to that's our favorite way of camping. S The other problem we talked about last week, the refrigerator door, the Jennifer kept dropping off. That Jennifer trapping is be if you're paying attention. It was reported fellow and I opened it. We're making lunch one day off came the door. And we have one of those is one of those new dometic three way refrigerators. So the doors open on either side, and if you open it from the left door falls off. Ely Refrigerator stick back on there again, what's bad about that as you don't WanNa. Dance floor, right? Pretty, heavy door, and and if you've got stuff in it, it's even heavier and. Yeah, so I did hear from other people who have had that same problem with the same refrigerator. So it's it's not unique to us. We did not have that problem with the previous RV we had which had the same refrigerator. And frigerator a little problem with having to give it a little push at the bottom to make sure it locked. Yeah. They didn't. It didn't feel properly. Yup. That was the last one and on this one to allow now on this one when you can only open it from the right side and then you get when you shut it, you gotTa push it in with your foot at the bottom of both. Eh, both sides, it's a pain and it needs to be replaced. So the problem is, is that our dealer says that dometic if you can get through to dramatic they, they spent hours trying to reach them last week and then they were told, they said a seventy seventy, a seventy day. Wait time for replacement parts it can. Can you imagine that? And I don't WanNa rag particularly undramatic factor refrigerator door fault. But apparently, that's true of all of the suppliers and that is the residual effects of the Kovic shutdowns that most of the suppliers the parts are really are really slow on coming in and we wondered if it's because they're made in China, some everything is made in China I don't seems to be doesn't it sometimes? So Anyway? As a seventy day. Wait time for replacement parts according to our dealer. And since I talked to this on the PODCASTS. From several others who had the same problem and one of them said, he'd do so impatient with domestic slack of service that he replaced his refrigerator with a new one from a different company. and Lo, and behold I received an email from an Italian. Our refrigerator company that has one for RV, a little larger than ours I don't know it will fit but. We're looking into it I mean. You WanNa have a refrigerator that you can count on. I mean this one works or explain. The door keeps all off. So we'll let you know what we do but the inverted. Thing that we wanted to get fixed. It's a big thing to me that we have a refrigerator door that I can count on. Yeah. Yeah, and. If falls off when you open it on the left side, you worry about hitting a bump in the road you know and it falls on Bo because he kinda sleeps. That happens he'll never go in that thing. So he's already a little nervous. Anyway we'll. We're going to work through that figure out either new refrigerator or or we'll just have to suck it up and duct tapes the door on scabby better way than that. So we had a refrigerator in the past that we had deduct Taytay because it flew open. Yeah. That was one of our road tracks. Yeah. So you know and you understand is. Out there it's like riding your your RV, is right in a partial earthquake yeah. So no wonder. How the roads are. Hey. This part of the podcast is brought to you by camping world. Camping world is your go to.

6 New Travel Mistakes To Avoid Thanks To The Pandemic
"Thinking of traveling with its domestically internationally anytime in the next year, there's a whole bunch of watch outs need to know and mistakes that other travelers making that you need to avoid if you're thinking of travelling during this whole pandemic situation that we find ourselves in Alabama. This is tips for travelers I wanNA talk about things you really need to know some things have going to discuss includes. Using travel agent or self booking higher hall packing situation can change the big mistakes that people making that you need to avoid, and probably the single most important thing you need to think about platform and know exactly what you're going to do when you're traveling in the current situation. The first key watch out is when you're thinking of travelling is assume that everything will change change very quickly. So even if you can go to certain country today or to certain state. Today that could change overnight and we've seen lots of examples happen where it's perfectly fine to fly to particular country like Spain for example, out of the UK but within hours of that could change. So countries are constantly evolving and looking at what they see as safe places to travel with you have to have quarantined with you go in with you have when you return and it changes really fast. I have had friends get on a plane heading off to Spain. For example, they've arrived learned that the UK government was about to bring in quarantining midnight got on the plane and come back because they didn't want to go into fourteen day quarantine. So when you think about traveling assume that things can change very quickly and it's really really important that you stay on top of all the advice you need to say, well, connected to the news what I recommend you do is try and book as last minute as you possibly can. You also like to get really good deals nowadays by booking last minute. So you booking when you know that the chance of everything going smoothly is pretty smooth. It's really hard now to book in advance because we just don't know what the situation is going to be. Secondly, if you book even if you're booking way ahead is ensure that everything is council refundable off movable. So if change you can move things around without any penalties. The good news is a lot of. Providers with airlines or cruise lines or hotels are making it much easier to things that absolutely critical make sure that things are cancelable, refundable and easy to move. So you can basically go with the flow. The second big watch out is that if you do your own booking which I used to like to do I'd like to my hotel separately my flight separately my accommodation separately whatever it was separately. One thing you might want to decide is don't do that book at all through a travel agent the reason being that if you have to change things, it becomes very complicated because it's four or five different context 'cause. To change things if you've booked everything through a travel agent, it's one call one email and you can sit back and let them get on with everything. You'd have to sit on phone lines for five hours, six hours to try and get through to change flights. It takes an enormous amount of stress out it makes things much simpler. So even if you a sort of person that likes to pick and mix juju thing I strongly recommend that you book through a travel agent I've seen examples now doing with all my travels over this period of time is using a travel agent to make it simple. The great news is. Also particular abroad, and you have connectivity issues or this time difference issues with that one call that one email you can basically relax keep common that happens it's been a great plus in the positive traveling when there's been lots of disruptions able to contact the agency that time was Monday cruising I convinced it back relax to the beach while everyone else was scarring around and I knew they were sorting out problems. So seriously think about using travel agent at this point tiger, he can manage all of the changes or the refunds, and basically a very importantly linked to my first point make sure that you know exactly the. Situation as changes, they will keep on top those potential cancellations and changes in quarantine rules or whatever the third watch that I have, and this is a really really important one as well is don't assume that everything has returned to normal I. Think one of the big mistakes that people making is they seem their everything today. When it comes to travel is back to normal. There are three critical things that you need to bear in mind. First of all, you need to absolutely check and make sure that everything is open just because lockdowns are ending it doesn't mean that everything is open some things may have even gone bankrupt. Just simply not opening because for whatever reason, they are able to come regulations that country letting them open the beaches may not be having you might have to book to go to the beaches you might have book time started to pool. The attractions may not be open they. You might have to have certain restrictions before you can go into see the site of the museum that you wanted to see the theme parks may not be entirely open early civil rights might be open. So there's a multitude things you need to make sure that are open before you actually decide that is what you want to go because you might be able to do what you really want to do secondly. Things may not run as you used to expect them to. Or maybe very different. So for example, many islands in the Caribbean. Some states in the US, some countries around the world requires covid nineteen test within seventy two hours of heading name for example, other countries. For example, Greece, you have to register online twenty, four hours before you go, you get a special qr courage you have to show when you check in. So hundreds and thousands of people have mystere. To Greece because they didn't understand that whole system, get the qr codes or do the paperwork correctly. So you need to assume the things are going to run differently and it's going to be really different requirements

'Tiger King' zoo closes after feds suspend its license
"And I promised you a little bit of news on the Tiger King. Which Tyre King News. Well, I know we love it. I mean, anybody who hasn't who Hasn't watched it to yourself a favour and do it. I mean, the first episode you go. What am I doing right? By the second episode, you're just kind of sucked in, and this was a huge hit. For Netflix. It was a documentary about the Tiger King Joe exotic and apparently the zoo that was featured in that documentary, Victoria. Announced late Tuesday that it is closed to the public. And can you imagine what that was like? After the federal animal exhibition license was suspended? The U. S Department of Agriculture said that it suspended the exhibitor license. For Greater Winwood Exotic Animal Park and Jeffrey Loh Hu was featured in the Netflix series on Monday. Both low and Joe exotic were among the characters in that Netflix Siri's Tiger King murder may have madness. Opposed to the park's Facebook page announced that public access to the privately owned zoo is closed. Effectively. Effective immediately. The new park will, at least for the future. Be a private film set for a Tiger king related television content for cable and streaming services. Now we know Nicolas Cage has signed on to do this. The report of the U. S is going. Oh, my God. You know what I could for her? I don't have Sharknado in my world anymore, but that's gonna be my name. Sharknado Tiger NATO. The report of the USDA DEA inspection at Winwood found multiple animal welfare violations really serious and Several repeat violations. Among those inspectors found the on ly refrigerated storage for animal food was a broken refrigerator truck that do, officials claimed had recently been fixed. The inspector's asked for the invoices on repairs, and they were handed an invoice for a tractor. Repair in the Facebook post apart, claimed it had been targeted by animal rights groups. Now I believe all of these things are true. I believe they have been targeted by animal rights groups, and in fact, Joe Exotic is working with Peter now from jail to try toe. Tippy toe off to all of these things, and there are according to reports spies in the area. But I also believe that they're probably pretty poor conditions at this part because we saw it in In footage and it's been going on for years. It's interesting. The one of the details which is pretty awful about this, the fact that that these that they've been targeted by animal rights groups Now having this license revoked this. This is actually bad news for the animals because having it being closed to the public means that the animals are no longer subjected to inspections, USDA inspections or pita. So I This is not great news for the animals that Jeffrey Loh Hu if you watch the serious he's sleazy Vegas guy in like the Ed Hardy T shirts with the You know, his wife in the nanny and the whole thing anyway.

5G is here, well, maybe.
"You've no doubt heard that the new wireless standard of superfast five G. IS GONNA be huge it may be but it's still early days. I'm Jefferson Graham, you're listening to talking tech. Now the good news about five G. as way fast or service the bad news you need a new phone to connect to the five G. networks. It's like the early days of CDs. When if you WANNA digital music, you needed to replace your old vinyl collection or when high definition TV came in and you needed to buy a new TV. Well only a handful of five g phones have been available, but that's changing Samsung's new note twenty phones out this week connect to five G. and next month apple is expected to unveil four new iphones that will work with five G. for the first time. Again, great news but more bad news five G. is really really confusing and much of what's out there now in five G. FROM VERIZON AT and T. mobile is either hard to get or not really that fast I. The confusion five comes in three flavors ultrafast known as millimeter wave low in medium-band five G., which is not as speedy but more widespread and available. For rising in which has five G. and just thirty five cities uses millimeter wave and has the fastest network but millimeter only works on blocks, not entire neighborhoods and has trouble operating inside buildings. Civilization is expanding its network. On mid band in operation that's in progress. T mobile has the most widespread five G. over seventy, five hundred markets, but it operates in low band in my test T. mobile's five G. was just a little speedier than four G. and not by much. At and T. is in the middle mostly in mid band and my test with an at and T. phone. It wasn't that different from what I saw with T. Mobile. Youtube clip would open up instantly versus a second in four G. and when you try to fast forward to the middle no buffering. Cool. But Nat life changing not yet now a year ago the carriers were charging extra for five G. coverage but not now so any speed bump you get. It's Gravy, right? Exempts from the three firms told me that the five G. Will See in twenty twenty one will be very different because so many new towers in additional queant will be installed listeners. What's your experience been with five G. I'd love to hear from you on twitter where I'm at Jefferson Graham, you've been listening to talking tech
"great news" Discussed on Ron Paul Liberty Report
"A Biden was calling Kamala Harris on probably on skype on his computer to tell her he chose her and he had some notes in front of him. Saying I'm calling you to MSNBC Photoshop those notes out he couldn't even. Reno in is very sad and it's it's terrible thing. But you Kamala Harris one of those people that are the worst of all worlds and how that's how Hillary was too when it comes to. Domestic Policy She's horribly authoritarian when it comes to foreign policy, she's an absolute war hawk. Our friends at twentieth twenty-first century wire kind of a short little list and I send it over to this morning. So a bill of particulars on her very little governing experience hasn't even finished a single term as an elected senator. When she was Attorney General of California. She locked up fifteen hundred people for marijuana and then she laughed about smoking marijuana when the ask if she's ever had it. She she pushed for the execution of death row. Death row inmate and she blocked the admission of exculpatory evidence. In his case she kept inmates beyond their jail term as cheap labor for the state of California She's an extreme promoter of the Russia Gate conspiracy theory which has been really disproven. She still holds to that she's in favor of regime change in Syria she's extremely close to a pack. She even had this weird statement when I was a kid, I didn't sell girl scout cookies I run around collecting money to plant trees in Israel. Cheerful cheerful ladies. So there's more we can go into but oh yeah here's one you're going like this when she wants to spend eleven trillion dollars on the green new deal to make us green in America, and she's probably not worried about where this money comes from. Monetary Theory Oh. He we're going to have deficits and printing money isn't that what we'd been doing? This work real well, but the warning signs are out there. It doesn't work all that well, and if expect expand the government as much as they'd like they're gonNA run into some roadblocks but you know there's been a lot of talk over the last maybe decade about identity politics, which which really is opposite of what libertarian politics is like because of course, we think the best way to bring people together integrate is to have the. Identify the the important identifier is the individuals and individuals seen. So I think. A libertarian generally would be a distance from all this identity politics and when I hear about it, it's always annoyed me that if you bring people together by having your blindfold, we'll and you bring them together by Martin. Luther King talked about. Character. This this would be you know so so much better but no they they don't accept that there and you know the Congress was everything. Was You know? Blackhawks did this and this. Different congresses and I'm really. Put a lot of blame on the media they are. So determine everything you know is race you know immediately well, there's seventy two percent of the black people were going to do this and eighteen percent of Hispanics are going to do this. You know maybe that's dental history but the whole idea that's top of the news that they're all one papal people. Now, we do have some black libertarian friends feel very offended and they just they just get lumped into that some person like Walter Williams topsil they wanna be an individual they don't want to be you know in their more we're used to hear him say, I, don't even want to be a block leader. He's I don't need a black leader. He says, he wants to be an individual and that's of course why he has libertarian..

That were sort of early Keitel Angeles. Before this whole boom happened years. It started with Christmas, you guys three or four years ago when you first were up. It's been almost odd years but yeah, we were or I should say many people on the team as well. But. We We were super early adapters before it became a thing. Kid Genyk Guy. It was starting to circulate in the biohacking community about five years ago. Maybe five miss closest six years ago when I started and and you know it was it was getting around biohacking community had not yet gone mainstream. But.

It was an actually that would be a little bit more glamorous but it was really about vanity I had I had reached a weight loss plateau. It wasn't really overweight and in any way because I've been biohacking and sort of. been. In, and out Akita Genyk. Diet. Really since the eighties with the Atkins Diet but I had been eating a lower car diet for quite some many years. So it wasn't really overweight but I really wanted to lean out. And I I was at a weight loss plateau and low carb just wasn't doing it, and so that's I experimented with Kito that way and then the weight loss went away pretty quickly as it tends to do for most people in fact, lost a lot more weight than I had anticipated. And then sort of what I thought was a set point and a place I wanted to be but I continued the Ketogenic Diet in fact. Double down on it and really became therapeutically Ketogenic, which is different than Akita. Diet. or a modified Keto Diet, which is the way I would describe my diet today but. But I experimented with really therapeutic Ketogenic, which is super high fat and and and a lot of blood testing and a lot of kind of quantification and.

"When the hit reactions were dramatic CEO of Wyoming based Avantis Bank and passed on the showcase on long tweeted game on USOC sees announcement that it's following Wyoming allowing national banks to custody digital assets is great news for Crypto long-overdue, and hopefully we'll help the US regain ground. It lost to other developed world countries by dilly dallying for so long winters, equal customers and crypto venture capitalists. This will spur emanate boom as us. Banks acquired digital asset custodians, and that was only the first two of her twenty four tweet storm on the topic link in the show notes for those who missed it. In other parts legal mind mark, Coyne hoarder, and passed on the show Preston Burn tweeted I've never been more bullish on crypto today crypto lending, and saving maybe how the payment of interest becomes thing. Again, thanks are desperate for yield the faster they move the more market share there will obtain lawyers and bankers are definitely excited. But why does this matter and what is it mean? Jonathan let's start with you today. Well looking at it from my perspective of someone who's tried to do startups in the for some time, the largest filter that is a had versus half not versus based on the technical or Business Acumen. Or Merit of your company is to do with getting a bank account and keeping a bank account and being able to even have customers in every state I mean the whole point about the bit license was the fact that banks were refusing to service customers of people running crypto startups. So what this does if? The executions being the statement says it is is it means that we're going to enter an age where crypto startup can actually have a bank account in America and actually be serviced and not just be a crock in or a Gemini or Aucoin base, but actually be three people you know asking for bank services. So you know the government tends to break your legs and then ask you to thank it when it gives you a crunch and it's really glad to see that at least now, they're giving entrepreneurs a crutch. Because like spin broken for a very long time hang on. I'm a bit confused here because this regulation is about freeing up the ability of banks to directly custody Crypto, and at least what you're saying seems to be more about whether banks are allowed to extend. Fiat. King Services to crypto companies why do you think the two are related one of the purposes? As to why money transmitter licences became such a big deal for crypto services is that the act of transmitting your token your value instrument is itself currency or is considered a value transfer, and so banks would onboard in dollar terms the ability for people to get crypto. But if you actually wanted to engage in crypto related services with Crypto you yourself had to. Take. That on, get a custodial and become a money services business because there weren't any financial service providers that would do that for you, and so there are a lot of projects that I know of that have lodged. That are in existence that can't even deliver the tokens to their system to people because they're waiting for money transmitter licences because the act of. Giving it to their customers would be considered money transmission, and so I think that we become so blinded to think that banking means crypto banking for crypto means the dirty Fiat side of it and not the awesome crypto side of it and a lot of the crypto related activities now can be done natively by a bank, which means that as a small startup. Become a bank. I don't have to become a crack in order to be able to do trivial thing I wanted to do with bitcoin or a colored coins. So I, just want echo that on the one side our experience on the show with trying to have a bank account. Well, we've actually been d platform because the word bitcoin is in the name right and that was for a while fairly controversial, and then on the other side of things, the work that I did with token Lee we often found ourselves without the ability to have a credit card processor because even the. Idea of touching tokens that were non speculative in nature that did not have prices that could appreciate. Well, that was still something that was on the other side of we know what we're talking about right and so you had banks that were just wildly uncomfortable with this and even the high risk tolerant ones you know the ones that specialize in dealing with really kinda sketchy applications, even those oftentimes wouldn't deal with noncontroversial uses of. Tokens and sort of anyway. So just the clarity that. So long as a company is following, the law banks can interact with them that I think is a pretty major statement and a major change from the way the banks have at least behave to this point. We'll see if they actually do anything differently with it but I think again, we're going to talk a little bit later about kind of the pay pal announcement and Sort of this shift that we've gone through where Crypto was on the one hand kind of in the very early days, people would adopted or companies would adopt it and get kind of an earned press boost, and then that went away for a while as things got boring. Now we're kind of on the entire other side of that curve, but we're going to have that conversation for just a little
New York Schools Can Reopen, Cuomo Says
"Public schools will have in class instruction. Each region in this state is below the Koven, 19 infection limits. So Governor Andrew Cuomo delivered what he called great news by our infection rates. All school districts can open school district's must submit plans to the state Health Department for review and Post plans for remote learning, testing and contact tracing. When we say if it's student test positive, this is how we do testing almost a district should also host discussions with parents and teachers by the end of the month.
Travis County coronavirus data trends downward, but caution urged
"County Health leaders. This week's had covert dreams are leveling off, and that's not great news, considering that the numbers are still pretty high. But looking at the new model from UT Mayor Steve Adler says there have been 45% fewer infections over the past 14 days. Those numbers at this point with indicate that that we could still pull this number down that were not leveling off model also shows the doubling time for new cases is steadily declining and the problem Bility that the pandemic is still growing is only 4%.
My Rare Disease Does Not Define Me
"I'm joined today by singer, songwriter and patient advocate, Gracie van brunt formerly based in Los Angeles. Gracie moved back to the Boston area before the Kovic pandemic. She's the recipient of the two thousand thirteen rare champions of hope patient advocacy. Award. From the nonprofit advocacy group global jeans at age two, she was diagnosed with a rare disease that I'm going to let her pronounce, and even before the pandemic, she was an expert at social distancing. She is here to share her story and her art welcome Gracie Hey. Thank you so much for having me what an amazing introduction. Thank you so much for being here. We're I'm really excited. This is gonNA. Be Fun. Yes, I'm so. Yeah you too. All right. So can you tell me about your disease and how is it pronounced? Yes. So it's called Schwartzman. Diamond. Syndrome. Like a Walkman, but just with an ass and then I'm in just like a like a diamond gem and then syndrome and it is a very rare disease that only affects I think around like five thousand people in the whole world how and I was diagnosed when I was two and now I'm twenty five. So it's a genetic chronic disease that is currently incurable. We are working on a cure for it, which hopefully can be developed soon, it is also life threatening. So the main aspect of the disease is your bone marrow and a lot. Lot of patients with SDS as we like to abbreviate, it have bone marrow issues where their bone marrow fails and We don't have enough blood counts really like we don't have enough platelets, not enough white cells and not enough red cells, which basically makes up your immune system So we get sick a lot quicker than a normal person would and we also a lot more prone to getting leukemia, which is a blood related cancer, and so the point of getting a bone marrow transplant would be to eliminate that risk. Let's start to talk about this and dig in Can you tell me about your song run ron run because I'm kind of obsessed. It's pretty great. Thank you. Run run run is a song that I wrote about my disease and having to live with it and confronted every day and The first line is my disease does not define me, but recently it's all I. can see and that is because three years ago in twenty seventeen, I got like a huge Epstein Barr virus. I just got really sick from having the Epstein Barr virus, which kind of like was the catalyst to me getting my heart transplant to use later, and so it's kind of just about having to actually confront my disease head on. which is something I haven't had to do for a long time because you know growing up after all of my hospital stints. I got gradually better and I was able to kind of dislike, put my disease into a little box and leave it there and On. A kind of live my life as a normal person. A. and. So when I got this Epstein, Barr in two, thousand, seventeen, it was a huge huge hit to my system. I was extremely sick for a few months and that ultimately led to me having to get a transplant but. Up, until then, I. You know I could be a normal teenager like do normal activities and. not really have to put a lot of emphasis on my body or my health. But because of this catalyst I'll say Really really. Forced me to take my disease out of that little box. I had it in and really really face it. So the chorus goes. To run run run just like I've always done and I leave it alone. But I, have nowhere else to go which is me really just like having to confront the fact that you know I'm still sick I will never be a normal bio typical person and I have to do this transplant for like to better my own quality of life and Just. Focus on. My health more than anything. So that's pretty much what it's about, and then like a little fun fact is. I had already written it before I got the news about my bone marrow transplant. So I had my doctor's appointment on December twenty, fourth two, thousand eighteen, which is like Yay, Christmas, time such great news. But so I had my doctor's appointment, and I already had like a little demo of this song done because Louis is my boyfriend and he's a wonderful producer and we had already been working on Um songs for my upcoming EP and then we'd already done this one. So the first thing I did when I came home was I actually just listened to this song to make me feel better. Because, it's just like it was just the best remedy for me because it is exactly how I felt in this. Little compact. Song.

Halo Infinite Multiplayer Is Free-To-Play, Supports 120 Fps
"Stop Confirms Kahlo. Blair is going to play. This is Tom War and the verge. Fitness will be free to play in support up to one hundred and twenty frames per second Marcus, Marsov has announced the news comes after leak from Smith's toys superstores, which briefly posted posted details about halo, infinite multiplayer on a promotional page this week before quickly removing them once the Internet discovered the references. The legendary hero returns with the most expensive masters chief campaign yet and a groundbreaking free to play multiplayer experience relisting enjoy up two hundred and twenty F- ps in greatly reduced low times creating seamless game play with xbox series X. Co Brill, an Xbox leaker that accurately released accurately revealed previous Halo Limited details backed up the claims that the most Blair mode will be free to play. The leaker also claims the arena mode will aim for one hundred and twenty. which is also confirmed, and that multiplayer Halo Infinite will include a battle passes them and new customization options which the company has not confirmed. Tim. Halo, Fan number one of kind of funny. What is your take on this? This is fantastic. This is honestly unbelievable in many ways. I think this is a sign of things to come I. in in terms of transparency this goes back to where Tom on earlier with the Sony side of things. The these rumors and leaks come out Microsoft straight comes out at what four thirty PM on a Friday and it's just like, Hey, it's true. Let's just announced this. Let's get. This is good news. Let's let the people start talking about this and getting hype about it. Hundred frames per second on a console like way earlier than I expected to to start seeing those. Numbers thrown around especially for a flagship like Halo and I know that there's a lot of like jokes to be made about the how he'll looks or whatever. But when it allows things like this, that are going to enhance the gameplay of what makes him multiplayer special I. think that's totally worth the concessions and on top of that their commitment to this. Hundred. Twenty for second I think is assigned to me the more tech minded person compared to a lot of people are kind of funny that I'm very very, even more. So excited about Nexgen now where I wasn't expecting to start really seeing these numbers for three or four years granted, the TV's that the mainstream has right now are not able to do this. Even. My Amazing L.. G. O. That I have isn't compatible with HD my point one and it wasn't until two years ago is model that they started having one port to do that. That's going to start becoming a bit more normalized over time. Especially, if these councils are are touting this and pushing this as a feature that's necessary, it's going to push the. TV. Creators to to push as fast as possible for that to get that marketing space and best buy you know But this is great news for Gamers especially for people whether they play on. A Computer Monitor or on TV like this is awesome. Yeah. The greater play. That's the best thing ever. Yeah. That's the biggest thing and honestly I am I'm shocked. That they're going this route but I think it is the best route to go. Mainly, because I think this would have been such a great seller for xbox game past Halo multiplayer like I. Think I think so many are expecting that like Oh yeah. That's going to be the killer APP for xbox Game Pass. So the fact that this is going to be free to play experience like you still have the Halo Campaign, which you can get through Xbox game passed and that's of course going to sell so many people on that service but still man multiplayer that's a big thing and honestly I think This is going to be so good for Halo. especially, like in comparison game pass like of course, that might that might not give impasse the bolstering that in east, but for Halo that is going to increase the player base. So dynamically, that is going to turn that into a platform going to allow that thing to live for a while right and of course, it's Halos who's going to live anyway. But free play takes up a whole other level So like this is this is crazy news, but I'm all about it like I'm I like big moves like this. A me too, and I think that this is definitely assigned to calm. There's been so many where the smoke their fire type rumors about xbox live going away as a paid service, and with this, it's like if you're making halo. Free to play. Like. That is such esteem that is such. A flagship on he'll is a flagship title for for Xbox in so many different ways it's a flagship for selling the series. X, it's a flagship for game pass. It's a flagship for what a Microsoft single player experience looks like with the campaign and it most definitely is a flagship for multiplayer and for selling xbox live. Everything they're saying here is them being like Yell Halo is something that is just the foundation that people just get and then you grow from there and hope that people come in and want to stay in that ecosystem I is extremely exciting. I think that it's GonNa pay off for them the talk about a battle pass or whatever that makes sense that's an a a source of revenue come, and if they're offering good content there than the great and. The on in the battle pass include with game pass would be a good idea to help push the game strategy exemption I expect that. Imagine that right where it's like, Oh, anyone can play. But if you get gained, ask you also get all the the battle past. Plus this library of games, and it's like that all Microsoft's trying to get people in if they're getting them in different doors to the same thing, that's what matters most
Michigan tries new approaches to coronavirus testing
"Michigan was one of the State's first at bat against a huge outbreak of corona virus. Michigan hit its peak in April reporting a high of more than eighteen hundred new cases on April. The third new cases remained above fifteen hundred for days that month Governor Gretchen whitmer declared a state of emergency by April first she closed all schools throughout the academic year hospitals were overrun even as workers faced layoffs and paycuts thousands. Of medical workers came down with the virus as they struggled to treat patients, and by the end of the month, the state ranked third for the highest number of coronavirus fatalities in the country Michigan struggled to bend the curve, but Michigan came through the curve bent. Now, the question is whether Michigan can stay out of the red zone and the state has seen a few smaller waves since the worst of it this spring, there was the outbreak last month that. Harper's bar the popular haunt for Michigan State University which reopened to an unexpectedly large crowd on June. The eighth local reporters found young patrons lining up less than six feet apart, and then packing the dance floor like they would on an ordinary non pandemic night. No masks to see in that picture state health officials later link that bar nearly two hundred new infections and today Michigan posted one of its higher totals of statewide new cases for the past couple of. Months and that's concerning especially because everywhere in the country right now, educators are trying to figure out how to get education going again it's basically every state and in some instances, every school district or even school for themselves at Michigan, State, in East Lansing, they're exploring a combination strategy that's going to be new to them, and that might be new for anyone else and it starts with a spit test developed at the university by neuroscience professor named Jack Lipton this man. The kit costs around three dollars a piece, and as you can see, it's pretty simple. You can do this in the privacy of your own apartment or dorm room you put your sample in the vial with the Little Barcode you seal it in the bag and Wallah your part is over the lab at Michigan State will take your sample and combine it with others in what is known as pool testing, which maybe you've heard about recently, the idea behind pulled testing is that it can help labs do more way more with weight less instead of having each person take their own. Separate test you pull the samples from a small number of people about a dozen and you run a single test on that pool of the pool turns up positive only then do you need each person in the pool to take a test but if the pool turns up negative, you're done the single test covered a dozen people in a place where you expect a lot of negatives. Pool testing is remarkably efficient at Michigan state. They're going to step further than that. Each volunteer who takes a spit test goes into separate pools of about ten or so people so think about it like. Two teams. You're Miami Dolphin and a Seattle Seahawk, or you're Houston rocket and in Minnesota Timber Wolves choose your metaphor. The point is if two pools come back with positive results, it can only mean one thing. The lab just finds the person who belongs to both pools using a handy grid like this one, and then recommends that that person get a follow up diagnostic test. It's like playing Bingo be six Bingo you might have corona virus. That's what Professor Lipton plans to do with samples from MSU volunteers testing two thousand of them every day and referring any apparent positives for an individual diagnostic test. Now, the third and most unusual part of this plan has to do with sewage scientists are discovering that they can spot a rising rotavirus cases early on by texting. Communities, Wastewater Michigan State, professor, Joan Rose and her team have been testing the campus wastewater. Since April she says, they noticed a peak in the virus that lined up with the news about an outbreak at a college hang out which demonstrated that there sewage diving expeditions worked I made that up I don't know if they're actually diving. For the testing this fall, the idea is to sample the wastewater from different places on campus so that they can get hyper local data if they can get good enough at sampling and turning around their result in a timely fashion, their work could act as an early alert system for Michigan State perhaps, even at the level of individual buildings. So you've got the pool testing with the affordable spit kits you've got expanded. Diagnostic testing. But literally just for those people who appear to be positive or just playing turn-up sick and then you've got the wastewater testing which increasingly looks like a functioning means of getting a warning in time to react if the plan works, it could help the university find and contain outbreaks. If it works the plan could help Michigan State and it's sixty seven thousand students stay on campus and have something like a semester. Joining us now is the aforementioned Dr Jack? Lipton. Of Translational Neuroscience at Michigan State University Dr Lipton. Thank you for being with us. We've heard about pool testing I want you to tell us a little more about it and why it it specifically helpful in this instance what what about Michigan State makes it a perfect candidate for the pooling of spit. What would you think about full testing end and Michigan state one of the things that you're that is really important to understand that the resources that we have is that university are fairly limited. Bright. But we're not a multinational corporation. So funds are limited resources are limited and pooling allows us to. have. More. More test being done with the same amount of resources or with less resources. So in this case, if we're dealing with supply chain issues with testing if we can test ten people with reagents that we would need to test one person, then we are were saving a lot in terms of of supplies, and if we don't have to run ten tests and we can run one test, we save a lot of time. So if you can save time and you can save supplies, you're going to Yeah. Ultimately conserve and that's really what our goal is and this. This works 'cause you're not expecting a large proportion of people to have this thing right. So generally speaking a bunch of these pools, we'll come out negative. Right. pools if you if you have about ten people in a pool in your expectation is maybe seeing two or three out of a hundred people. Show up positive than most of your pools are going to be negative. The more the prevalence increases the more the rates of infection increase. Then you're going to have more and more positive bulls. If one out of every ten people are positive than a pool of ten, most likely is going to have a positive individual in it. So you have to really balance pool size and prevalence together in order to come up with the right balance to save resources and save time. So the this actually could have broader implications There's a Wall Street Journal op-ed that you wrote about a previous test not this one that we're talking about, but it was a concept of pulling in you set across the United States tens of thousands of similar academic research labs have the expertise and equipment to help the country test for covid nineteen. If even one tenth of these labs joined the effort we could. Test an additional five, hundred thousand to one million samples a day. Your larger point here is that there are ways to get to more people and and then figure it out early rather than what we're in right now where there are some places where people are waiting in excess of seven days for typical test results in a in a concentrated environment like Michigan state you can. You can see things early and intervene. Absolutely and I think it's really important to note when you're talking about the pet that we put together. The vast amount of resources and know how that existed the academic laboratories universities across the country. Each one of the things that we've proposed was to develop biomedical National Guard and utilize all of these individual laboratories across the country and have them be organized through the federal government in order to be able to respond to pandemics or other natural disasters with biomedical know-how and that if we could get something like that done if the next administration is interested in doing something like that, we can be. Proactive instead of reactive in these kinds of situations. Wow. That's incredible because you just answer the question I was going to ask I was going to say, Hey, what can government do to take advantage of these kinds of resources and you just answer that I just want to say that again, a biomedical National Guard what a great simple idea resources all over the country run by different people but the the government of the United States providing the centralization for the data and the distribution. If you think about all of the laboratories and universities that were shut down as a result of the pandemic so many people were were sitting home like I sitting home on on zoom all day. If we have opportunity to come back into the laboratory and help. We can do so much in terms of trying to not only develop new new treatments and and working on new methods of detection, which is what our laboratory did during during April we can marshal all of these resources all. Know How that exists in order to to. Attack this problem in a concerted and coordinated way. Lifting. There's not a lot of great news about Krono virus, but I have to tell you after this conversation. I'm optimistic that there are people like you around this country who are actually in this moment while everything looks as grim as it is finding solutions that are going to help us see the other side of the coronavirus. Dr. Jack Lift Lipton is the chair and professor of translational neuro size. I don't even know what that is. We'll talk about that another time at Michigan State University. Thank you for all that you are doing and good luck to you at Michigan. State, we'll stay on top of this with you.
Moderna Starts Phase 3 Trial For Its Coronavirus Vaccine; MRNA Stock Jumps
"Shares of Moderna up nearly ten percent after the biotech company said it received an additional four hundred seventy two million dollars from the government to support the development of a potential vaccines. This comes on the same day. That MODERNA is beginning phase three study of the vaccine, a much more robust study with thirty thousand people. Yes this study, which as you mentioned is thirty thousand Americans mostly in areas that have been highly impacted by the COVID pandemic. Half those people are getting placebos. Half are getting the vaccine. We'll see how this pans out. Obviously everybody including myself are keeping their fingers crossed that we have some positive results from this phase three study, the first phase three study to be taking place here in the US, but as you. You mentioned Dirna among a handful of other healthcare technology companies are getting payments from the federal government to help speed up the process of vaccine, testing and Vaccine Development. I just want to caution investors. There's probably not going to be a lot of pricing power on modern. Whoever else eventually comes to market with a covert vaccine? There's not going to be a lot of pricing power for those vaccines they're going to be. Pressed to sell these vaccines for essentially no money down for the purpose of obviously preventing more Americans and more people internationally from dying, so it's great news as a person as a consumer as an American I'm very happy here as an investor, it doesn't change my opinion about the company.
Oxford COVID vaccine trial results called "extremely encouraging"
"Yes some great news coming out on the COVID nineteen front, so university of Oxford has developed a covid nineteen vaccine in. It's showing really positive results. There's evidence that vaccines can produce these immune responses that are supposedly going to protect people against the infection, so they need to do more trials because they need to get A. A wider Kesse, wider net and see how it affects people more, but currently they say it seems to be safe and effective. So this is great news. Yes, that's way ahead of schedule and it is very heartening to hear that, so we wanted to put that in the good news
"great news" Discussed on The Point Of It All
"Deal with a person. Is it like a cycle we? He leaves voicemails below the person that is twisted things. He's the type of do.

"great news" Discussed on The Nightly Rant
"Master your show. So that sounds good. I'll give tips on better equipment. You might need. I tell you something right now, we sit here we are holding microphones that. I looked up on Amazon. These were these are given to my son as part of his audio engineering stool. Cut. Eleven keep them, but dollars on ads on and the sound has improved on the show. So we started using that my point being if you've got the money for the five hundred dollar microphone, and you have the environment that worked go for you. You know, not everyone this Bill Gates, or you know. We don't have all the money in the world. So we go with what we can go, but thirty nine dollars microphone. Plugged into a hundred dollar quarter is doing the job for us right now. Right. And I'll help people with that hope people figure out with the need to make their show sound better. I'm telling you there, bro. Found his podcast. I can't remember what it's called at this point. He must recording while he's driving in traffic from work to honor. Here's car engine sounds on. The guy's got tons of listeners on a how imagine summit better. Then maybe it's like Garrett being truckers to say the beginning days of social media.

Netflix comedy great news ago, which is written by Tracy Whitfield and executive produced by Tina Fey and Robert Kadok who you'll know that work from thirty rock, and they'll break commitment and stuff like that. So Anna, how did you get on with this? I really liked says those also. One hundred percent on board on on board that it was making yours like getting laughs out of me. And then there was one line morose. I for this show where the mother character says the door to character, let spunk of work for the day. Let's go see that Nancy Meyers movie where Chris Hemsworth builds a gazebo, then Mary's one hundred year old woman. Jake that is such such an up by St. joke. I like rewound it my boyfriend in the room who loves Nancy Meyers. He's not rewound it at night play Jake for him. And he was like a good joke. We should say what this is actually about race. So it set in a fictional TV newsroom of show called the break down. The main character is Katie who is a producer on said show and at the beginning of the festival, she's kind of struggling work, but she's been there for years, but she doesn't feel like she's getting the recognition from her male bosses. She's not being given the opportunity she thinks she should get. And she seems to have a very very close relationship with her mum who she's on the phone all the time. And she tells her everything about work, and then one day her mom just tons up at work and like surprise, I've just decided to go back to college together degree in TV journalism, and I'm here doing internship. It'll be Paul. My costs. So I work here. Now much like the premise of the Nancy miles movie. The intern. Which we also come. Which over the narrow become an older intern in a young workplace. So the mother Terry becomes an older intern in this quite young workplace, and it's also bar mother-daughter negotiating kind of work purse down and figuring out how to work together at work, and like the plots are kind of ridiculous, right? There's lots of like city like plots involve Katie going off to report on a bad that might mall her today and her mother, it's a really stupid TV show. We should mention it's not like people who like me despite its proper Matic contents. Don't like the sole control the newsroom in that show. They are he's pretending to make like a serious news program. Whereas this the breakdown seems to be almost exclusively made up of stuff on other shows would be like an finally a hilarious like serial killers dogs doing tricks. Yes. It is. Really silly. I yeah, I really like it. And it's one of those shows where I think the the best jokes are not in the kind of like plot. And the story it's little alike, you know, just really funny commentary, and obviously there is a lot of kind of like media commentary as in like the Iraq and stuff because of the central premise of it being in a kind of broadcast news office. So yeah, I really I really liked. It's definitely at you say it was like a twenty minute lunch watch or something. I think you described out. That's exactly what it is is for me, absolutely, fills the gap in my life with her. He wrote walls where I used to watch thirty rock for like doing cleaning, and that kind of stuff and yet still occasionally thirty rock would come out with a line over joke that like I'm still thinking about today, and I feel like great news has the same. Like, for instance, is is even in the very first episode of thirty Roque where the Jack Donaghy Alec Baldwin. Character is wearing a tux in his office. And it still light outside Tina Fey skirt committed says like why you era docs, and he just looks at her goes it's off to six what am I former? Some reason that line just resonates with me and every time like entitled push person says something to me that's a bit like that. That's what plays in my head. That's why I feel great niece has. It's like, it's a good relaxing. Worked doesn't take up too much time..

"So you're basically in the same position you are at the beginning of leave you just fail all the time. Like, there's no point learning any of this because it's just all meaningless. Anyway, I was particularly I particularly -joyed the reactions of there were three women slightly older than me that Nemi in the cinema. I would say it who had all they all drunk quite of wine before they come to the film, and they were now I think playing kind of private drinking game in this in basically every time someone would be like you're actually secretly l'estrange sibling credence. They would all just cackle. With louder. And then when the final reveal if it even stays the same in the next film comes along which heavy spoiler. It's revealed that will Grendel tells credence that he is like a secret Dumbledore sibling or something. He his real name is Arabia Dumbledore, and that actually he's the only one who can defeat Albus because their blood or something these women just like fully shrieked with laughter. And I felt that was really the only appropriate response. Yeah. It's depressing. And as you say, the the script is not good. Fundamental level is embarrassing and not realistic. And it's just it's it's a shame. And I just don't see where the weather films are gonna go from here in order to kind of like save this whole separate franchise field ready doomed to to fail to me. And I just as always sat there thinking, why are we watching marauders sequel prequel every frigging Marolles prequel? It would be great. What hate as just like even just like the young Dumbledore? I don't would be fine. Also might just before we move on. Because we have been talking about this awhile. But my pet hate really was the factor. We see professor mcgonagall an adult whether only in the nineteen twenties or potentially line thirty s when this film is set which would mean that she was like a good twenty years older than we all thought we actually see you're in a flashback to the nineteen hundreds making her a good fifty years old. I like folk for boring complicated reasons. It cannot be like her mother or her grandmother because no, it's definitely her mother was a a witch remarried, and we're going to go. So he can't be the grandmother because she wouldn't be called mcgonagall and the mother lying. We know was not teacher Hogwarts. We just know that like the mcgonigal's role models. So it just doesn't make any sense. It's definitely be professional goal. And she's just like really really old way older than any of us ever imagined. Not dot kind of inconsistency issues for straights. When you bought, and it's also unnecessary as well that is so unnecessary. Like, she's only in it for like, two seconds. And it's it's meant to be just like a really minor in joke. And it's great wanna see characters like McDonald's. That's the whole point of doing a prequel in a world that, you know, in love to like see the teachers that, you know, in love in the school that you know in love, it was great. I don't actually have a problem with being there. It's just like if you're asking us to invest in seven books and eight movies and another five movies and a four free in our long play. Like, the details do matter because we spent so much money and time on this. And we don't want to say that thinking, we know more about it, and the people who wrote it that's just a new being what is interesting to me as I saw a new story about how this has had like the smallest opening weekend of any Harry Potter prized, which is not surprising. But I in a way that gives me a tiny bit of hope because I think we haven't made it on too much. This. I think possibly one of the driving factors behind the problems. We've mentioned is the Harry Potter is now like a multibillion dollar business for Warner Brothers. So if it's not making money, it's not working. Right. So that kind of makes me think that maybe they will stop and think that they should be doing things differently. I've no idea if there's ready the scope to pivot the story tool or like getting you actors, Johnny Depp or do anything, but I just a tiny tiny bit is like, well, if they are seeing this is like a massive product to harvest, and it's.

She's like, hyper empathetic, she can sometimes read other people's minds and feel their feelings. And I was quite interested her in the car because I felt it was really set up as like, you know, she's very soft and feminine in her skills are kind of not flashy, but she's nonetheless, very powerful for that. And then in this film after very little screen time. And various let's nation. She just joins Grendel old. Yeah. And there's a kind of logical leap poll is spoil an hour. And I think we will get into really spoiler territory, you if you haven't seen it wanna go see it, you know, maybe false forward. But the logical leap hole here is that she not even lead. It just doesn't make sense the floor in the logic that she saying, oh, I'm gonna join Grendel fold because I wanna marry a Michael and he allows for freedom and love, but between wizards and muggles which is a bit of a stretch of an interpretation, but something that he's kind of said to manipulate her. But by doing that, her muggle boyfriend is like CLA writing. This guy's really hateful. I don't want to. I we we. We win or going to be together. If you go off on this journey, and she doesn't anyway. And like dot dot just doesn't make any sense. That makes no sense. When her motivation is supposed to be all about wanting to be with. Yeah. And given. Yeah. It's just doesn't make it so annoying. And it's the same with a character liter strange in this who is introduced this is her first kind of outing. We've heard lots about her in the first movie, and then we finally meet her in this one, and we see her do things, and again, like the idea that her character might be motivated by serious like have actual tangible motivations is just kind of like thrown out the window, and she just does things and whenever really given a sense as to what's going on in her brain. And that's this character, they devote a lot of time to flashbacks trying to explain why she feels the way she does why she long like exposition monologue gave it and still none of it makes any sense. And it's it's to send that we talk a lot about on seriously. But it's committing a fundamental in of saying how can we get our characters? To serve the plot. That we want in this movie rather than thinking, how would these characters behave, and let's like, right? The plot around that like here character surf plot plot doesn't serve character. And that's just so for straight to see and something that really didn't it never felt like that in the original Harry Potter series. Always felt like when Dumbledore didn't say something not felt like not because they were like, oh, well, we would lose the momentum of the story. If Dumbledore told Harry, this it was all wrapped up into Dumbledore. Harry's dynamic and how domino would withhold things. From Harry was like a key fundamental character issue, not just a plot issue. And it's just really depressing to see this issue. We see in the cost child players. Well, we felt and I I hate seeing again. And I think the whole problem comes down to the fact that they're trying to put too much in a short film by too much really happens over the plot this film, whilst nothing high stakes consequential really important actually happens like character. Does die in spectacular sacrificial moments. But then nothing is gained in that sacrifice. So it really is enough. Basically is what happened characters identities revealed to be not what you thought and then revealed again to be something even different to that. And like this double bluffing and triple blah Fagan that so much crammed in all of it eventually becomes undone by the time, you get to the end of the film..

"So I can't really claim an out that way. So I can imagine I might be some people listening here upset with with us for going to see this film, which I would completely understand for me. I just kind of couldn't not go because of my job. And I just saw new I was never going to not see a major Harry Potter film because the series is kind of too close to my heart this points, though. Although I object to Johnny Depp's costing in this movie. I just don't see what may not going with really achieve at this point. That's kind of where I am with it as well. I don't really know what not going chiefs. And also, I kind of think that even if I didn't care about it personally, which I do in this case, I still think I in the same way that I've not massively invested in the marvel universe by still see most of the films because I write about culture, and they are a big part of pop culture. And so on you know, I still think I'd probably say, but yeah, I still feel conflicted about it. And if anyone wants to skip ahead to the next section and not listen to any more of this either for spoiler or other reasons the times will be in the description, so you can do that totally. And if you wanna Email in like bashes, go ahead because I'm always interested to hear people's perspectives on. This kind of thing. So I won't be offended. So without aside, shall we talk about the actual movie. Yeah. So it's a sequel. It's also kind of a prequel. It's in this weird space between the beginning of this franchise starts in like the nineteen twenties. Twenty six is when the first film was so with where kind of, you know, seventy years away from the beginning of the Harry Potter time-line. But yeah, for me this film hangs in a weird space where nothing really happens in this movie has nothing happened in the first movie really which was all about setting up five prequel films where two films into a five film series and still really nothing has happened in in my opinion. Yes, I think it's such a floor to. I could be wrong. But I think it's reasonable to expect that the climax of this five film arc is Dumbledore fighting Griddle old that with us what we've all assumed. And yet been kind of led to believe whether or not. Because we know that he wins because it's a prequel. Yes. And yet we also know that Grendel doesn't die because of what happens in deathly hallows. Yes. So I think it's therefore a real problem when you've chosen a like one off climactic event the outcome of which is already known as the basis for a five film. The has to be something else. That happens the has to be some other substantial plot go on and so far there just isn't any and a lot of the kind of momentum that the film's rely on is this kind of escalating political tension happening within the visiting world, which has a lot of parallels to, you know, all literal real society and early called it mogul society them, but that would be to imply that the wizards are also real. But in literal real society is that we have you know, there's lots of allusions to the second World War, a Nazism and also like, maybe the contemporary rise. You know, re rise of the of the fall, right that we're seeing the moment, you know, lots of people comparing the Grindelwald character to a kind of Trump e Oreta, and so, you know, I guess maybe it's also going to engage with on that political level in order to find something kind of meaty in these movies..

"Think brilliantly laughably bad. Coming your way. And yes, we have already done love actually specials or no. It's not that. It's not that. But you can't go back into that. Yeah. Maybe we'll put one of those out eighty ever the Christmas period this year. So she we roll on with this week pinola episode of seriously. Yep. Let's so the first thing that we're going to talk about this week is little fantastic beasts the crimes of Grindelwald, which is the second film in the Harry Potter prequel franchise, fantastic beasts so this stars Johnny Depp as the evil wizard Grendel Vold Jude law as the young Albus Dumbledore, Eddie red main as Newt Scamander and Ezra Miller as credence baboon. It was written by JK Rollings as part of the ongoing wizard ING world fictional universe. Yes. So obviously a lot of controversy about this film that we talked about repeated times on seriously involving the car. Sting of Johnny Depp. Who was accused of domestic assault by his ex wife amber heard back in may twenty seventeen. It's been a huge ongoing case they settled out of court. A neighbor said nobody lied for financial game. JK Rollings has been a staunch defender of Johnny Depp. In all this on has said that she's not only happy, but completely delighted to have him in these films. And she's kind of said things that almost allude to the idea that we just need to trust her and take her at her word, the she would never cost someone that she considered to be genuinely problematic. So that's kind of where we're at with this film. I felt very conflicted about going to see this film. I'm buying a ticket in the cinema. And I kind of knew that I was never not gonna go and see the next Harry Potter film. Which is I think big part of why so many people are so upset by Johnny Depp's casting in this film. I saw a screening so I didn't pay for ticket. But that is always a coward's way out because I go to screenings and don't have to buy cinema tickets because my job is to go to films, and then I write about them and talk about them thereby encouraging other people to go buy tickets..
