33 Burst results for "Greco"
A highlight from Acts 025 - The Spirit's Power
"Okay, well come on in. The water's fine. Good to see you all this evening. And welcome back to our Wednesday night Bible study. We took a summer break. And in the last quarter, we started a study on the book of Acts. Made it all the way through chapter 3. And this morning, not this morning, this evening, if you could locate Acts chapter 4 and verse 1. Sort of to get the cobwebs out. The book of Acts is about the birth and the growth of the church. So in Acts chapter 1, Jesus ascended. In Acts chapter 2, the church is born. Day of Pentecost. In Acts chapter 3, Peter and John heal a lame man. I think he was born lame. He was about 38 years old. And his legs were miraculously restored in Acts 3. Which gave Peter a chance to preach to a crowd. And Peter there condemns 1st century Israel for their rejection of the Messiah. And chapter 3, as you surely could imagine, flows right into chapter 4. Where Peter and John get arrested. So here's an outline of Acts 4. Even going into Acts 5, the Ananias and Sapphira incident. But you have the apostles arrested, verses 1 through 4. The apostles examined by the Sanhedrin. The Sanhedrin is the existing Jewish legal authority, religious authority in 1st century Israel. That's in verses 5 through 12. Then the Sanhedrin makes a decision, verses 13 through 22. And then the apostles go to prayer. And this is a very powerful prayer that they pray in verses 23 through 31. And then the chapter kind of ends with them, the church that is living in their communal arrangement. Which we saw develop in Acts at the end of Acts 2. And that sets the stage very nicely for the first 11 chapters in chapter 5. Because in that communal arrangement, it involved selling your property and giving the proceeds to the church. And there was a couple there, Ananias and Sapphira, who publicly misrepresented their generosity. And they were slain in the Holy Spirit. And when I say slain in the Holy Spirit, that's not a good thing. Okay. And God brought upon them maximum divine discipline. And that had, as we're going to see, a purifying effect on the early church. So anyway, that's kind of the lay of the land that we're moving into this evening. I don't think we'll be able to cover all of this this evening, but we can make a healthy start. First of all, the apostles are arrested. We have an interruption. The reasons for the arrest. The arrest and the results of the arrest. So notice, if you will, Acts chapter 4, verse 1. It says, as they were speaking to the people, the priests and the captain of the temple guard and the Sadducees came up to them. So when it says they were speaking to the people, this is in reference to the sermon that Peter primarily was giving in Acts 3. Where they healed a man who was lame, born lame. He knew nothing but the lack of use of his legs for, I think it says, 38 years. And he's miraculously healed, not by Peter and John, but by Jesus through Peter and John. It's just Jesus is exercising his ministry now from the Father's right hand. Through the church, through the apostles. And a big crowd gathers and Peter uses the opportunity to condemn first century Israel. Their decision nationally to reject their own Messiah. So that's what it means there when it says as they were speaking to the people. So as they were speaking to the people, they're now interrupted by the religious authorities. Who are the religious authorities? It says it right there in verse 1 of chapter 4. The priests, the captain of the temple guard, and the Sadducees. So these are religious officials or workers. We have priests, the captain of the temple guard, and another group here called the Sadducees. And easy to remember the Sadducees is the Sadducees were always sad, you see. Sadducees. Basically, the Sadducees were people that if we were to try to parallel them today with somebody, we would call them theological liberals. A theological liberal denies what the Bible says. You know, it denies prophecy, denies miracles, and that kind of thing. And that's who these Sadducees were. The Sadducees only believed in the first five books of Moses. That's all they believed in. They didn't accept the rest of the Old Testament. So that's why when Jesus is talking to them about resurrection, the Sadducees, and the Gospels, he does not quote from Daniel chapter 12, verse 2 to prove resurrection to them. I mean, why didn't he quote Daniel 12, verse 2? Daniel 12, verse 2 is a great verse on future resurrection. It says, many of those who sleep in the dust of the ground will awake, these to everlasting life, but others to everlasting disgrace, to disgrace and everlasting contempt. So why didn't Jesus, when he is arguing with the Sadducees and the Gospels about resurrection, why doesn't he quote that passage? That's a beautiful passage to quote from. Well, the answer is the Sadducees did not accept Daniel as authoritatively coming from God. They only accepted the first five books of the Bible. So it wouldn't do any good to prove resurrection from the Book of Daniel to the Sadducees. So instead, Jesus quotes the Book of Exodus. And I'm getting this from Matthew 22, 32 and 31. Here he's speaking to the Sadducees and it says, but regarding the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God? And now he's quoting Exodus. the I am God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. He is not the God of the dead, but the living. In other words, he points out that based on the Book of Exodus, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are alive right now. And he uses that to prove future resurrection. So why would he quote that passage? Because that's one of the books they would accept. He doesn't quote the more obvious passage because the Sadducees did not accept anything other than the Pentateuch, the Torah, the first five books of Hebrew Bible. The Sadducees were also sad, you see, not only because they denied all other scripture outside of Moses, but they denied resurrection. That's why Jesus is debating them about resurrection. They did not believe in angels. Acts 23 and verse 8 says, for the Sadducees say there is no resurrection, nor an angel. Matthew 22 and verse 30 indicates that the Sadducees didn't believe in resurrection. So you're dealing with people that only believed in the first five books of Moses. They didn't believe in angels. They didn't believe in resurrection. So Sadducee is a pretty good name for these people, right? I mean, I would be sad too if I had a limited acceptance of the authority of the totality of what God has revealed. The Sadducees are a little bit different than the Pharisees. In fact, they're a lot different. In the Sadducees, we can analogize them to modern day theological liberals. Pharisees were conservatives, but they were hyper legalists. They brought in, and this goes back to the Babylonian captivity, the Jewish rejection of the Sabbath sent the nation of Israel into the Babylonian captivity for 70 years. And when the nation of Israel came out of that captivity and came back into their homeland, they said to themselves, we're never going to let that happen again. And so they built what we call a fence around the law. Meaning we're going to pass so many laws against breaking the Sabbath that no one will ever think about breaking the Sabbath. So they had all these rules about how you couldn't eat on the Sabbath. You know, you couldn't rescue a man on the Sabbath. All of these things come into the life of Israel through something called Mishnah, and then Talmud, and there were two Talmuds. There was one in the land of Israel. There was a later one developed in what's called the Babylonian Talmud. And this is why Jesus said of the Pharisees, you make null the word of God through your traditions. Because what happened is the tale started to wag the dog. They started to read the law superimposed over the law were a bunch of man -made regulations and restrictions. So when Jesus is dealing with the Pharisees, he's always dealing with this issue. You know, he's feeding his disciples on the Sabbath. Pharisees are upset about that. He's healing people on the Sabbath. Pharisees are upset about that. And what are they upset about? They're upset about the fact that he's not respecting their rules. Where Jesus' point is the tale's wagging the dog. Your rules are being superimposed over God's actual law to the point where you're burying the original intent of the law under layer after layer after layer of man -made regulation. So Jesus, as the Lord of the Sabbath, was always trying to get back to what the Sabbath meant. It was supposed to be a blessing for man. Pharisees are saying, nope, you can't do anything on the Sabbath. You can't heal someone on the Sabbath, even though that's a blessing for man. You can't feed your disciples on the Sabbath, you know, pick crops and that kind of thing on the Sabbath. Even though that's a blessing for man, you're ruining our rules. So that's a little bit of who the Pharisees were. Pharisees are conservative, but they're beyond conservative. They're hyper legalists. Sadducees are just deniers of what the totality of God's word says. The Pharisees are going to be dominant in the synagogue. They had a higher sphere of influence in the synagogue. What was the synagogue? The synagogue were these places that Jews would gather, you know, all over the Greco -Roman world. And they gathered there during a time when there was no temple to go to. Remember the temple, the first temple that Solomon built was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar and wasn't rebuilt until the days of Ezra, Haggai, Zechariah. So what did the Jews do? They would gather in the Greco -Roman world in these places called the synagogue. And the Pharisees were dominant in the synagogue. The Sadducees, as I'm trying to describe it, were dominant in the temple area. So that's why the people that are harassing the apostles in early Acts, really all the way up through Acts chapter 12, are the Sadducees and not the Pharisees. Because the Sadducees had ascendancy in the temple area. In Acts 1 through 12, the early church hadn't spread out yet. And it had a very strong sphere of influence in Jerusalem. So that's why the early church is dealing with the Sadducees, the Sadducees, the Sadducees, the Sadducees, until the Apostle Paul in Acts 13 and 14 goes out on missionary journey number one into southern Galatia. And then you'll start seeing him going to the various synagogues outside the land of Israel. And now the people coming against Paul are not the Sadducees, but now they're the Pharisees. So Sadducees, liberals, Pharisees, legalists. Sadducees dominant in the temple area, Pharisees dominant in the synagogue. Sadducees will be dominant as long as the church has a place of influence in Jerusalem. But the Pharisees as opponents of the church will become dominant as the church spreads out and moves outside the land of Israel. So verse one says, as they were speaking to the people, the priests and the captain of the temple guard and the Sadducees came up to them. That's a little bit about who the Sadducees are and why they are the primary detractors of the church at this particular point. So Peter and John, Peter's conversation that he was having in Acts three, a very effective conversation is interrupted. The reasons for the interruption are given in verse two. It says being, now notice this, not just disturbed, but greatly disturbed. Being greatly disturbed because they were teaching the people and in proclaiming Jesus the resurrection from the dead. So here are these apostles and if you drop over to verse 13 for a minute, you see the way that the religious authorities looked at the apostles. It says, now as they observed the confidence of Peter and John and understood that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed and began to recognize them as having been with Jesus. So what is upsetting to the Sadducees is number one, these apostles are teaching the people and they never went to our Sadducee school. I mean, they don't have a Sadducee degree. In other words, they don't think like we do. I mean, if these apostles thought the way we thought, then they would only accept Moses. They would reject angels. They would reject resurrection. And here are these men who are untrained fishermen teaching the masses there in Acts chapter three. In other words, they don't have the authority to be teaching anybody is how the Sadducees were thinking about the apostles. And what really upset them is they kept talking about Christ's, but starts it with an R, resurrection, proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection from the dead. Now that was really upsetting to the Sadducees because the Sadducees didn't believe in resurrection. And here they're claiming that the man that the nation of Israel just turned over to Rome for execution has risen from the dead and his tomb is empty. That doesn't fit our doctrine. The Sadducees would say to themselves. And this puts the apostles on a collision course with the Sadducees. The moment Peter in Acts 2 24, which is a wonderful sermon, said these words, he became, I think at that point, a marked man by the Sadducees. Peter said, but God, speaking of Jesus, raised him up again, putting an end to the agony of defeat, since it was impossible for him to be held by its power. Peter continues the subject matter in Acts chapter three and that sermon there in verse 15. And it says, but put to death, speaking of Israel, the prince of life, the one whom God raised from the dead. And he says a fact to which we are witnesses. Remember what Paul would say to the Corinthians. Now there's 500 eyewitnesses, 1 Corinthians 15. Check it out for yourself. They've all seen the resurrected Christ. So what they were saying is Israel rejected her own Messiah. That made the Sadducees angry enough. So then they said this Messiah rose from the dead and the Sadducees were upset even more because they didn't believe in future resurrection or any kind of resurrection. That's why when you look at verse two, it says they were being greatly disturbed, not just disturbed, but greatly disturbed because they were teaching the people. Here are these unqualified fishermen teaching doctrines that we, the religious authorities, oppose. Now you put all of this in motion and you can see why they're arrested. And their arrest is described in verse three. So they laid hands on them, that would be Peter and John, put them in jail until the next day for it was already evening. Now, why didn't they put them on trial right then and there? It's part of Jewish law. Jewish law says no trial in the evening hours. The only one that they violated that rule for was who? Jesus, because they couldn't wait to rush him through the judicial system to get him dead as quickly as they could. So they violated everything in their rule book. But here at least they're respecting the rule book and they're not having a trial in the evening hours because that is forbidden by the Mosaic law. And what is the results of all of this thing, all of this? Because we're kind of in the mindset that, oh no, if the mandates come back, which they could, they're talking about it, you know. And Sugar Land Bible Church stays open, which is at least my intention. I mean, I would like to stay open. I don't think a pastor or an elder board has a right to shut down a church because whose church is it? It's God's church. If God wants to shut down a church, it's his church, he's more than capable of doing it. A pastor doesn't have an authority to close down a church. So if all these mandates come back and hypothetically, let's say we stay open, my goodness, what if they come in here and they fine us? What if they come in here and they arrest us? What if they do like they did to that pastor of that Baptist church in Northern California where they actually chained the doors and keep assessing fine after fine after fine against him with an attempt to completely drive the church that he was pastoring, you know, under? You know, what do we do then? Well, this is where Acts chapter four is so instructive.
Fresh update on "greco" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Say hi, Blake. Hello. And Blake, we have we have a lot of questions here, but I thought it was just a perfect question to have you join. When a young lady says, how often do you think about the Roman Empire? Now, so, Blake, fill our audience in on this Internet phenomenon. OK, so we talked about this on Thought Crime, which if you guys don't watch Thought Crime on Rumble, definitely check it out every Thursday at 8 p.m. Eastern. And download the podcast. We talked about this last week. This went viral on Twitter X, I guess we call it now. I can't get over that. Instagram, all the other places where some woman basically discovered, she's like, you know, I asked my husband, like, how often he thinks about the Roman Empire? And he replied like every week or so. You know, this blew her mind. You know, she probably hasn't thought about the Roman Empire ever. And so she's like, ladies, is this true? Like, are men thinking about this all of the time? And the answer is yes. We are all thinking about it all the time. Like multiple times a day all the time. Yeah, yeah. I was I could maybe miss a day here or there. And then they made this a topic. Now it's just weird. I can't escape the Roman Empire. Well, so first, you know more about Roman Empire than like the Roman Empire than like professional historians, which I think we should riffle. Can you name all the emperors in order? All of them in order. I could probably get pretty far. So like Augustus, Octavian. Octavian is Augustus. So then Tiberius. Augustus, Tiberius. And then I lose it. Then like Caligula. Caligula is next. Oh, is that right? Okay, all right. Tiberius, Caligula. And then Nero is somewhere in the next three or four, right? Claudius, Nero. Oh, so I wasn't too far off. Claudius, Nero, Galba, Otho, Vitellius, Vespasian, Titus, Domitian, Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian, Antoninus, Pius, Marcus Aurelius, also with the last of the good emperors, Commodus. Commodus. See, I got that one. And then he gets choked out by a wrestler in the bath. Not making that up. And so then it is- Otherwise known as Joaquin Phoenix, by the way, for those of you keeping score at home. And then we get Pertinax. That's an obscure one. Pertinax. At this point, it was after Pax Romana. Yeah, this is where it's starting to break down. And so then we have Pertinax. Then we have Didius Julianus. Just so you guys know, he's not reading a screen. No, no, no. I'll turn the computer down there. Didius Julianus. Then Septimius Severus. And then Geda Caracalla, our brothers. Caracalla kills his brother, Geda. I don't know if I'm pronouncing that right. I don't actually read Latin. I just have to read translations like a normie. Geda Caracalla. And then, OK, now it starts to get tough. And then I think it's Elagabalus. No, we have Macrinus. Then Elagabalus. Then Severus Alexander. He gets murdered by his soldiers. And then things get really kooky. And if you read the list, it's like it's all inconsistent. We have guys with weird names like Pupianus. That's a dumb name. And then like Gordian 1, 2, and 3. Philip the Arab. I can't. Now this is where the order breaks down for a while. It gets really. So the females are stunned that we think about the Roman Empire so much. Why do men think so much about it? By the way, incredibly impressive, Blake. And it's very impressive. Maybe people disagree. They're like, this is a sad person. No, I think it's amazing. I can name like five. It's more than most Americans. But I mean, why do men think so much about the Roman Empire? Well, so it's a lot of things. Like men, I mean, we love it. Like it is like the apex of everything that men aspire to build. It was an institution that was the bedrock of civilization for 1,000 years. It's what we still aspire to today, what still gives shape to our society today. Like what is the most common religion in Western civilization? It's Christianity. Who adopted Christianity? The Roman Empire. What formed as our government? I mean, a republic. That's from Res Publica for 400 years, right? Res Publica. That is a Latin Roman term. And it's, you know, what architectural style are we imitating? We're imitating Greco-Roman architecture. If you go to DC, it's basically Little Rome. Yeah, like what drove the Enlightenment? A huge proportion of it is essentially aspiring to what these ancient Romans and ancient Greeks wrote about and did. The Renaissance was a rediscovery. The Renaissance, the rebirth, was the rediscovery of ancient Greek and Roman learning. And then the Enlightenment was sort of a continuation of that. All of these guys would say, you know, like James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, all of these guys would read these ancient Roman political thinkers. Cicero, for example. One-year Roman council had a huge impact on the founders. Exactly, exactly. And so it's very much the model they would look towards both for good and bad things. It is the cultural template that we operate off of. You know, you could almost say like we're in Judeo-Christian Roman civilization, if you wanted to. Yeah, and it's forgetting the male-female part of it, because we've been through that macro, micro. Men are more focused on history and philosophy. Women more focused on relationships and feelings, poetry, stuff like that. And that's not a sexist thing, it's just a fact. But so what I find interesting, though, is that when people say Rome is the goal, what does that mean? By people, you mean when Jack tells us that Rome is the goal. Oh, so it is obviously men do love the idea of building... A little bit like that, you know, we love to build things that endure. And, you know, we love to imagine, like, what would the United States, you know, we feel like the United States is in decline. But and the Roman Empire declined and fell, but it lasted a very long time. That's the amazing thing. Four hundred and seventy-seven years, right? It had a run of 500, 600 years where it was the most powerful, important thing. People, by the end of it, you know, they couldn't imagine a world without Rome. Like, it had never existed. No one could imagine a history of what it was like before Rome was a thing. That's how much it shaped everything. And for thousands of years afterwards, that's what they wanted. You know, we'd have these pale imitations. In the Middle Ages, they had the Holy Roman Empire, which, you know, as Voltaire wrote, was like, not holy, not Roman, not an empire. It actually was all three of those things. But that's another matter. And, you know, because they were just, to a Middle Ages person, they were like, this is Rome restored. We are the Roman Emperor. And they're like bad, pale understanding of it. And, you know, even when they're found in the United States, a lot of them would view this as like, oh, this is our, you know, our restoration of the ancient, like, Republican principles of Rome. Like, that's always the goal, is to create a state and society that can be as, you know, robust and enduring as what happened 2,000 years ago. And it's all really cool. Like, they fight all these wars, and there's all these inspirational, like, moral fables that you get from Rome, which we mostly get because all of their history gets burned up, and we have like one book left, and it's like Roman propaganda. And meditation. Exactly. And some stuff like that. But like, you know, they fight this war against Hannibal. And there's a battle where the Romans lose the Battle of Cannae, where 60,000 Romans die in one day, which would be like, imagine if we fought a war with, you know, Britain or Germany, and, you know, 2 million US troops get killed in one day with the president and a third of Congress in like North Carolina, and he's like marching on Washington. And like, that is what happens to Rome. And like, they don't make peace. And according to the histories, they don't even think about making peace. Like, it doesn't even enter their mind. And they just, they just tank, you know, right in the face. Like, they're a boxer who does nothing, get punched, get punched in the face, and they keep going. And that just is the sort of thing that if you're a man, you're like, wow, those guys are awesome. Not to mention the architectural achievements. Aqueducts, roads, the dome, right? The arch and the dome also invented it. Everyone wants to imitate this. So there is a... It is the standard still of architecture worldwide. The famous thing is the Duomo in Florence, Brunelleschi's dome. It is like, it was the first dome they made in 1500 years that was bigger than the dome of the Pantheon. And like, when the Ottoman, when the Muslims take over Istanbul, like their big thing is we want to be able to build a dome that is as large as, you know, the one in Aja Sofia, which had been built a thousand years before them. And all of these achievements, it's like, how many buildings do you know from a thousand years ago? Not really as many as we have from Rome 2000 years ago. I want to stay on this because I think it's super interesting. There are some misconceptions about the fall of Rome that you correct sometimes. Yeah, there's a few of them. And I also want to talk about how did they get so great, so excellent? Such an outlier, because I think that's interesting. Was it the form of government? Some people say it was the nutrition. Have you ever heard that theory that they were able to have such reliable agrarian base in a time when food was largely scarce? I don't know if that's true or not. Blake Neff is with us as we do our Ask Me Anything episode. How often do you think about the Roman Empire? I think about it. I have a bust of Marcus Aurelius in my office.
How Gheorghe Ignat Got Into Greco Roman Wrestling and MMA
"I'm excited to hear your story about growing up in Romania. So tell us, how did you get involved? You're obviously a big guy. How did you get involved in wrestling and mixed martial arts? Tell us that story. So I was born in 1983, Eric in northern side over in a year. Obviously, under the communist communist regime, I grew up on the countryside, and I was raised until the age of 7 by my grandmother. So we grew up quite poor in that communist environment. You could not literally have anything were on anything, and I remember I remember growing with my grandmother, she didn't have many animals, but she had a cow that she would milk and she had a few chickens that will give us the eggs that we needed every day. And I remember that and this is one episode that I want to go to. I was like 5 years old when these people were coming once a week to collect the eggs for the Communist Party. So the Communist Party was sending people to collect the eggs, the baby lambs, baby, cows, or whatever that the animals who had their own, we have to share with the Communist Party. And I remember this lady coming in with a gentleman asking for the eggs for that week. And my grandmother was so sad saying, you know, the chickens did not add enough to be able to share with them. We barely have for us. And what was a small kid? And I remember my grandma has a basket with a couple of eggs under the bed, and I told in my mind that she forget about those eggs, right? And I'm jumping on my feet, and I'm just bending under the bed, and I'm pulling out those eggs. And I'm like, here it is, grandma. You forget about this. So that lady understood that my grandmother just trying to put some eggs on the side for us. But they still took the eggs and just made my grandmother to pay attention to these things to repeat. So we didn't have X for a couple of days. So this is just an example of how life was in Romania at that time.
"greco" Discussed on Discover Lafayette
"Welcome back to discover laugh fiat. You can hear tessa and michelle's interview in many others at discover lafayette dot. So we're here. Caroline greco talking about all things employment and leadership related so I want you to talk about what the message he wanted to get across. Because i think the workplace has just been in an upheaval. There's a shortage of workers. And i think a lot of people have taken a back seat when they either lost their jobs or realized. I don't wanna have a meaningless job anymore. It's very important to be thoughtful as you go back into the workplace. And i think that's why there's been a shortage. People are either gone back to school or they wanna wait and do what they enjoy. It's it's a critical time. We've never seen anything like this. Certainly not in our lifetime. Hopefully we don't ever again But yes whenever. There's a major upheaval like this and so many people are affected. I mean it's just like the you know the balls in the bingo Thing you know. Everything is just turning and spinning and moving around. The good news is in all of that activity. There's opportunity but it's how do you identify it. How do you decide what you wanna do. You know what are you feeling. Do you want to continue working. Do you wanna work at home. Do you wanna work in the office. Do you wanna do a hybrid situation. I mean there's just a myriad of different things going on in in decisions important decisions for people to make a lotta people you know routinely though aside from this being posts kovin one of the things that we do in outplacement is when we do the assessment that i mentioned earlier assessments. We determine whether the person wants to continue to work or not. Do you wanna work fulltime part time. Do you want to quote retire unquote. And i've the reason i say with the quotes on that is the definition of retirement is changing drastically as we speak as well. Do you want to go back to school. Do you wanna start a business. Do you want to become a consultant and many people haven't really thought about it. You know so. That is a big decision. And that's what's happening now with covert do. I want that commute every day you know. I bet her their day just was given back to them when they were shut down I used to drive to baton rouge every day for for years. And when i quit it finally you know the commute. I really was shocked at what may look like threat. How much time you have. How much additional tiang have and the stress level at amendment and there's that yeah With the traffic and everything. I can work from home for years. We've got a law firm. I can go in and use Conference room and i'm helping leadership institute and they have of course conference rooms at one. Hey but i'm like being at home. But i'm a self starter. I don't think everybody and not that there's better than others. But i mean i'm i will drive myself to get things done but i mean a lot of people need that camaraderie. Some people have difficulty working at home. we've had several clients who at first they liked it for maybe three or four weeks and then they realized how especially if they're extroverts. Yeah they realized how much they missed. being in the office and you know having people around and just visiting and so forth and so on so it's a it's an individual choice for everybody and employers to right lanes yes and employers as well as i had heard people thought. Well we made me. Don't need all this office space. But after a couple months or so they they realized we do need people working together for danell streets. We're human-to-human you know when we were social and you can only do so much on zoom meeting or facetime person you hear the person but it is not that personal one on one Connection that we need we energy and the oh yes down the energy right being a former teacher. I just can't imagine teaching a class via especially if like you've got some that get distracted or their. Adhd i can't help it but they're not pay tensions about and even students have said. I just can't wait to get back. His my fran. I really can't learn as vile this way being a self starter is another issue. You know some people can work at home and build structure around their day. Others just have a very difficult time doing it. Yeah no it's like. Oh i need to do the laundry start dinner or whatever you know or mow the grass. Whatever whatever it is. So it's very very young disheartening. And you have to set boundaries because i know when you work at home people think well you've got all this time including your family like you know. Hello i'm working. That was an issue with a couple of candidates that we worked with older siblings in the family it was extended families in in both cases wanted them to run errands for them. And you know basically they had to set the boundaries. They had say look you know. I'm job hunting. I'm devoting eight to twelve or whatever they're you know we we would have to make them a schedule.

"I don't know how to phrase this other media. Do you consume because you know. I'm trying more more to be very careful in other words that i say because i think that words really really mad i especially as coaches and educators of people. You can really. You can go either direction people. You can influence people's thoughts just by using the correct words. And i feel like all the things i've heard you say. Not just he now but by hearing you on on clubhouse another places you're exceptional at that and i'm guessing while there's probably a big genetic portions that i feel like you've educated yourself summing on that so what are some of the things that have been influential in you in the way that you communicate with people. Because i wasn't joking at the start. When i say that i'm i'm amazed by your kindness and respect to others in a way that you communicate with people who sometimes clearly just misinformed or having a bad day or saying something that might be out of character for them. You pick on that view. Pick that up very quickly and sort of real on people. So how did you get to that point. What an interesting question. I think that. I've always had that as a natural talent. And i have also. Purposefully worked on honing that skill. Even more over the years part of it was choosing very powerfully. How i wanted to show up for my kids and in part. That was lessons that it was like not wanting to be like my mom was with me. And so right. Having an example of what i didn't want so i had to sort of purposely. Create what i did want nurturing and caring for them. It was my top priority. But they also when they were very young. When to montessori school and i studied the montessori philosophy of learning and i was fascinated by it and that certainly contributed in part to always carrying an making sure that think the way i phrase it to my son when he was really little was like making sure that when people spent time with him that they would feel better after having spent time with him than before. It's kind of like that. But everywhere. And so i also did some soft development through landmark education. And that helped significantly teach me about how your words create world and that anything is possible and so that is sort of that was pivotal in my transformation. When i was feeling very stuck after i got divorced but before i was able to segue into training. Dogs that transformation. I think really helped a lot for me on recognizing really the power of your words and that goes much deeper than just what each is to outside out loud but it's also what you're thinking so that was part of it and then when you fast forward many more years. I mentioned that my husband was in. Fbi agent. He is trained for the fbi to teach at quantico and he's also contract to teach the new york police department personality assessment called disc which is fairly common. A lot of people have heard of it but he taught my training staff the disc training. And i think that was sort of the cherry on top in that. Not only can. I be responsible for myself for my words but i can easily sort of hear what someone else is saying. And then almost as if i can kind of get into their world and then it helps my teaching for sure. And that i'm able to articulate something to them in the way that's going to make the most sense to them even if it might not be the way i normally would say like if i wanted to talk myself..

I couldn't imagine having jury home him and so it wasn't ever a big deal for me personally because it gave me the ability to have my life have my dog and my daughter and everything was fine and so i think because it had that experience i didn't ever have any kind of hesitation or resistance to training a dog with a balanced approach. I sort of everything. I've ever heard you guys as far as scott to be done responsibly. And ethically and correctly. A lot of that is with regards to teaching our clients correctly. But you know. I find with our clients that it's easy for them to learn the way we teach. And so you know i have heard a lot of people say the they get concerned that will. What if the client's do it wrong. And i guess my train of thought on that is like we'll them never a good teacher and so if you're teaching the dog owners correctly than what happens.

Sometimes so some of the answers to things that he you give us. Oh conceited and thoughtful and in line with the principles. In which i try to leave my life so in glenn said hey i would like to get him on the shelves like yes that will be super cool and add to all of that. You have a really interesting background in marine mammal training. And do you have a very interesting background in marine mammal training. And i appreciate the comment or noticing any way. I always try to be quite conscious of what i'm saying and making sure that what i'm saying is really what i mean and so i do practice that in my everyday life and so i do think that that's a skill that's handy on clubhouse when you're only dealing in an audio format i do appreciate you bringing that up. You carry yourself well and rooms came. One thing i've really noticed is that the conversation is sorta fading out whenever you're are in the room or whenever you take over or whenever you're moderating anything like you bring the energy back to the room. And that's a skill set on the tyne like to be out to carry conversations to be out too late into conversations to get people thinking along the different law and that's much needed in some of those rooms because sometimes you go in there and the conversation is just like fading away and it's just awkward silences and so forth but you kind of bring spirit and energy back into the room that's a talent into itself and that's really one of the important things on having people on the show. Is that people can carry a conversation that got interesting backstory. So they've got relevant industry related topics i want to talk about. And you've got a bunch of them so we're going to start deep diving into some of your origin stories. An own really trying to china mostly trying people to be dope.

I got from amex and then i was trying to dope pod. Because that's how try and there was some people and they had some sort of unruly behavior from the dog. Yup and i think at this point. I was in ashland virginia and finally that i thought i said to them all. Can you help us with these guys said. No fuck you on dog. I don't want to. But i know someone who will come to your home here in ashland virginia while you're at work and we'll do like a little bit of training session with your dog while you're gone away not talking about melanie. Bandwidth was melody. Ben kindergarten on so i gave those details anyway so went on to do some cool things with these touchy And then i had to come back to australia and brought the dog well. But you know what i didn't bring what zanny visa equipment lifted ole ole so. I needed all new gear. Guess where. I go my leashes collars tugs harnesses doctor blah blah blah blah. Buffet had central lines. Weak dow quit minds wick buffet. Yeah yeah and when i got here i realized. Oh you know what. I'd been traveling.

It's fun to do this kind of stuff about the people of Channel two in Channel five that you completely But what? I don't even know anybody over there. Okay, okay.

We don't plug each other's live shots We get in fistfights in the locker room. Bunch of baby. There was that kind of stuff happening, cheating. How could you unplug someone's live shot? That's not competing. They deserved it. And you have to admit you have the nerve. You have the nerve then to get on your soapbox about the New England Patriots and what they would try to do to win.

Don't drift me off into the wrong channel here. Back then, though, you know, I told these stories a million times. It was just so it was at its height with Johnny Morris, Tim Weigel and shed Coptic and it was fueled by all the TV critics because back then, if you were a news anchor sportscaster meteorologist, you're a big celebrity in this town.

It was pretty exciting your salary because we've had that conversation that just came out of the blue to. Why did I don't know. Where did so What? So what? So where we at now? Yeah.

You have never heard you talk about the junior so much. Yeah. Was fabulous. But the only good thing for the United States over the past 24 hours. What was a glorious moment last night was absolutely Were you even on the air today, Mark No. We stayed with the network all day long. We will have a 10 o'clock newscast. Tonight. We'll have a little bit of sports. Talking about the Bears and Andrew Shaw. Fan favorite in your face. Guy is back. And he was very funny today, so hopefully we can provide a little bit of alternative programming just like I'm gonna try to do for the next half hour, right? Right. It's I'm sure, though, it's tough to live in the newsroom. It's been tough for me all day today. Like I don't get me wrong. I love my job. I'm not an expert on anything that's going on in the real world today. That's what we tend to stay in our lane. But it's just like I said to Michael, I said this to black during the break. I'm just is down as I can remember today. It's just frustration and anger. I'm just absolutely horrified. This is one of the most surreal. Just insane. Days in American history. I'm gonna try to stay in my lane too, because four years ago I was suspended for two weeks without pay for mocking and warning people, So I'm just going to leave it at that. Let's move on to run a tab. Pick on cash. He seems to want to know what's going on. Guys obviously had nothing to talk about yesterday proposing a boxing match between wasn't me. I didn't know who proposed the boxing at the other one that I waited. Yeah, Mark, hold on. First of all nothing to talk about when when one of our own is attacked. The defendant reserves waiting like that one? No, I thought it was good stuff. How did this all start He? I'll play this for you. He violated what I believe is a code. Now Look, you're a guy I grew up watching. I got to shadow for you a day in middle school. I got to intern for you like I am always in the kitchen bothering, right? I've tainted his life. He's picked up your laundry. Yes, absolutely. His foot long sandwich? Yes. Never. I never made you pick up my dry cleaning or wash my car. Unlike timeshare on hey, actually wanted one of our interns to do that, and car. Our intern happen to be some big ex football player who put him up against the wall and set him straight. I'm here to learn TV not to go get your dry cleaning. So so they actually picked up and pushed him up against the wall. So another another great moment in broadcast his drug test history broadcasting in the eighties, right? Right. And so here we are listening to cap and Jay Hood. In the morning and then all of it, and I think he violated a major code here. Okay, So they were talking about Jed Hoyer and how much Jed Hoyer has made as the general manager and why the Cubs are hiring another general manager right now. Work under Jed currently. So this is the conversation that took place. She was gonna make three million bucks. Told you to Jed Hoyer didn't make $3 million. Absolutely not Think General, you made million million. No shot. There's zero shot. There's zero shot. Gene Greco is making more than Geno ordered it. Giangreco was making less than a million. Sorry break did to you, Um Who I'm just telling you.

But he he just he made you sound like my Oh, well, you see, First of all, he did violate the code, and he was acting like this is some kind of secret breaking news that he has some insight to And I thought you just put it up as a poll question just for laughs, and my response was going to be look, I'm in the worst shape of my life right now. I'm not getting any younger. It's ridiculous to talk about. Be fighting another guy in the business, even if it's to raise money for charity. It's not people laughing with us.

What is Play Therapy?
"Are. Right we are back with another episode and I'm really excited to have on the body guests on the show with us on the data. Vargas is a licensed mental health counselor. She's a registered play therapist and supervisor, but also she's trained in em Dr and not only that is certified as a I play practitioner. So we really have an amazing guest with us that's going to talk about safe air. I want to share a little bit more about her Andrea is also the south chapter. Chair for the Lord Association for play therapy and she has specialize in child and adolescent counseling. Since two thousand six, her practice is located in a western. Florida. where she serves children of all ages teens and their families, as well as college students and as passionate about helping parents and strengthen their relationships through able therapeutic interventions and the I was born in. Columbia and emigrated to the United States with her family when she was a toddler growing up, she remembers that therapy like in most Latin families was believed to be or what unquote people with problems crazy people. So thank you and the wrath or coming on after talking about this for so long welcome to let the next therapy. Hi Yes, and so excited to be here. Thank you for having. Sat. We're GONNA talk about play therapy and I. Know some of the listeners may be hearing this modality for the first time. So let's go ahead and get started with just explaining what is play therapy. Okay. So play therapy is what you would translate regular talk therapy to the developmental age of a child rates. So when we picture adult going to therapy normally command area having a deal more or less than what they're gonNa work on on what they're going to talk about and they sit. On the couch and then the dialogue starts right. But with kids, they necessarily come up with the idea of wanting to go to a therapist. So their parents really bring them in talking to kids like most of you know if you guys are parents, it's not the same. You know some kids don't have the words and even if they do, they'll more than like me say things like, I. Don't know for energy look at you like the really. So with great, you meet them with a yards of elementary. So kids play and they also stare feelings and they even crosses all the changes that are happening around them or maybe negative events that have occurred in their family or in their life and. Of play therapies is a therapist train specifically to enter a child world and pickup themes that the child might be playing out to get a better understanding of how this child feeling what they're struggling with, and then working closely with the parents to help their parents understand them, and then giving parents tools to make certain adjustments and also the child helping them. Understand better ways to communicate or better ways to manage and culprit their Felix Okay and so play therapy involves the children, but it sounds like it involves the parents as well. Yes. Yes. I. Mean. If you think about it when a therapist needs to do child, they might need them once a week but that's not enough time to really change or enough. It's almost impossible to king somebody a child when you're not thinking about the whole family or even school. So if the child is having a problem at school, just working with the kyle limits you to what how much can you really made so if you work closely with the school, you Greco see if the parents and if maybe they're have grandparents, for example. So part of working with. A calendar understanding that they have a lot of adults involved in their life, and if all the adults get on the same page and work together that child is going to be way more successful. Okay. What about children that have caregivers or are in the foster care system? Are they eligible to receive play therapy like with IBM modality for them as well? If they don't have a consistent caregiver? Yes. I mean, when we think about foster, can they definitely need a safe face to process all of those feeling that? You know that they're feeling because of their foster care placement. So it's a little tricky because like you said, they don't have consistent caregivers, but you know if they are in a foster home, you can work leash with the foster parent and then whatever school they were going to. So maybe not as consistent because they might change the foster home or maybe they are still working our reunification with their parents with their biological parents. You can always include depending on the case right whoever is currently taking care of the child and if they still have contact with the biological parent involving his okay that makes sense. What are the ages that play therapy is best for? So people say like play therapists say that they're play therapy can work with anybody from three to one hundred and three right by it been studied and studied have found that it's most effective with kids between the ages of three and twelve. So it is possible and what about the children with special needs is play therapy also something that they can do? Yes. They are just like in adult therapy there's different specializations so they are different type. Training. Somebody would take in order to work with children on the autism spectrum. Can called off play. There's other stuff likes floor time so. Underneath play therapy, there's different branches. So as long as you are there, understand the child special need in your trine in working with that special needs population than we can definitely use sleep there.

Neural Architecture Search and Googles New AutoML Zero with Quoc Le
"Welcome to the PODCAST. Hi Everyone. It's great to have you on the show I've followed research for Your work for quite some time and I'm looking forward to digging into some of the new things that you're working on but before we do that I'd love to have you share a little bit about your background and how you got started working in machine learning okay so I was born in Vietnam. I did my Undergrad in Australia. And in my second year. My undergrad I started some project doing machine London with Alex. Mola a back in Australia and back. Then I was played with. Kodo methods Then I Did my PhD AT STANFORD. A on a lot of deep learning back in the day when deployed in whispers or very cool. And that's the route two thousand seven and around two thousand eleven I did a summer internship at Google and that was when Google Brin project was founded so when I was there that was a long and Jackie Naan Greco data was there and I. It was the sun so we started out small. That sounds cool. Yeah and then I did some of the Scaling Up Neuro networks with Google Britain folks and then You know at the end Up to two years did some work on machine translation with the media and Oreo VR. He's now did mine. Owner of Ilya is now at opening I and we develop sold end to end. Solution methods and Around two thousand sixteen. I started looking into more like You Know Auto. Mau Architecture search and more recently are looking to Malacca together with Otto may also look into Sent me supervised learning and it's awesome awesome now. You mentioned early on doing work with Alex. Mullah was he was this before he was at Carnegie Mellon was visiting in Australia. He was a professor in Australia. Yeah I I went to a university. In a small air. In the capital city Austrailia go Kendra. He was yeah camera and he was Professor Edward Research. So I thought I had. I have along Very interested in AI and machine learning and took me for that. I took a class data mining and so on and talk a little bit boring but the ability to actually learn. It's actually a super fascinating so I contacted him and he was moonlight co methods machine learning and we worked together for maybe a few years before he went to he went to America then. Cmu and Amazon. Okay okay so a lot of your. Recent work has been focused on this idea of You know automating machine learning and neural architecture surge to allow machines to find the best deep learning architectures in like. It's a little bit about how you arrived at working in that area. What some of the motivations were for getting started digging into that problem so I've been Along interested in this idea of self improvement machine should be self improving itself a machine learning and even and when I started doing co methods with Alex. I always ask him. You know how the Dakota bandwith and so on how some of the HYPOC Ramat does include methods decided and apparently they decided by using things like Cross validation on then where I work on. Koroma two narrow networks. My hope is to make the hype. Affirmative go away. But that's how is the opposite so if you look at the a Kabul Lucien neural networks at has a lot of hype privatised right like how many how many layers you want it to be and how many channels you wanted to be. And what are the some of the high assize apprentice since on a Coulda with all the training parameters? Yeah all learning. Dry and as researcher develop more and more techniques FAW EURONET. There's more decisions that you have to make. That feel like. This is like a problem that can be helped by a little bit of automation so So I I observe a lot of my colleagues who will when designing networks and I asked him about the principles of design. Your neural networks. And you started are having some really solid principles like Skip CONNECTION SO. The gradient can flow through the network concern. But as you tune the network Karen Hata do no longer have the principal is around. You know trial and error right you you try this a little bit and simply with better so you try that more so. I think that that is something that may be ready for automation so even during my Grad School. I already talked about trying this but I thought you know. Maybe we didn't have enough compute because training net already takes took me days so when I saw that new control. Units are are in thirty minutes. Something like that on on safer I thought. Oh maybe this is the right time to try this. So that's when I started doing this. Newer architecture search in two thousand sixteen. It's interesting that you know. Even with all of the compute resources of Google. You had to wait until the time was compressed. Enough in order to be able to tackle the problem. Yeah to get really good results. You want the networks will be really big and that will take a long time to train. Yeah and it's it's It's funny coming from me that we have so much resources that will go train in EURONET still taking a long time And so maybe talk about the the first steps in In that area. Did you jump right into neural architecture? Search or was that the you know a a an end stage or end result of this work where I I on some of the related ideas on and off since two thousand twelve like playing around with how to do. Better hyper profitable tuning and none of that. It's really published. Because I didn't have good results have pugh and so on so so I tried it on and off over the time you know every year I would set out some time to try this idea for a few months and you know and it didn't work very well because like a procurement song and then Two Thousand Sixteen. I met Barrett's off would as my colleague now at Google and he's very talented. So we say oh. Let's let's try at the idea of Jews in like a reinforcement learning to generate and network like a little layer in an network for for a ceasefire model. Seafoam motto. Is already at the time you could say that you know enough of you depends on how where you want to be but you from thirty minutes to a few hours and the seems like about the right amount of time to get this going and my prediction is that you have to train. Maybe either between from one thousand to ten thousand bottles and I did a backup our calculation and thought. Oh this might be the right time to do it but you know I have tried this some of these related ideas in much before

Alibaba's Singles' Day sales hit record growth
"Yeah let's switch gears it's going to Ali Baba you know the huge E. commerce company coming out of China they have what's called singles day over there where it's a big one day online sales push a set a nother record today to get some color on that let's welcome Alex web so Alex tells a little bit of from Bloomberg news Alex also the bit about kind of what you know so far about the singles day from Ali Baba well I am well she says will be opinion and about about busing those days a kind of concocted holiday that was invented by students in China sort of in the nineteen nineties to celebrate that single them and it was very much coopted by Ali Baba and Jack bought the the the founder and CEO outgoing C. A. who made it much like cyber Monday or Black Friday all in the U. S. started making a big day when lots of people spend lots of money and ideally spend that money on Ali Baba's economists Nick properties and DCA X. beating the pace of last year which you would expect to generate the trend is towards E. commerce so far eight eight billion neck two thirds of the if the data beaten the number for the entirety of the day lost yes I the pace seems to be getting on the click the reason this is important or interesting is that is concerned about Chinese great Chinese economic growth is slipping below six percent that's the lowest in in some more than three decades and so does some sort of read across the people are looking at just to see whether they can infer anything about the appetite from Chinese consumers from the numbers that come out of sync so can we infer anything because the I know that Alibaba was was talking about this record hall from the Ali Baba from the singles day sales and yet we're getting other data in particular I PI the gives a conflicted picture yeah I mean I think that is ultimately issue alley Bob would like everybody to say that if it's if it's a Greco number that's great news for them is going to try to the thing is it's a gross merchandise value essentially how much money in title has been spent across these properties we don't really know what might have pumped up that might have been special offers two for one you know does the value of the things actually great or was it just a valid to spend is great teen if you're offering discounts then you might be getting your view you'll kind of incentivize people to spend more money on it now Ali Baba it is probably more relevant to them as they look towards you know selling us a steak on the on the Hong Kong stock exchange and I'm baffled get himself a huge amount of attention in the run up to that so yes I think any any line that is drawn to to Chinese growth figures is Nick given what and how it is a record number forty gave it a bit of a sketchy correlation if there'd been a decrease than you could clearly in for something more significant defeat the pace of growth that been slow than is absolutely fine line you could drawn from it but that isn't the case is so it's a little hard to to draw those in correlations tell us can you give us a sense of how much Ali Baba is consolidating the shopping industry on its platform the same way that Amazon is doing in the United States well I mean the more I mean Bob is trying to do is actually extend beyond the shores of China you know it's trying to get people a personal lease across Southeast Asia and increasingly with some you know more financial offering senior using and it's sort of Alabama financial arm to to get people outside of its core markets to come and join its platforms which is you know perhaps indicative of maybe slowing growth in China release harder to get the same pace of as before and it's extending into new fields food delivery those sort of things that those sort of affects all really the the the new pushes firm from Ali Baba last on the kind of classic economists are rolled up that we've seen with Thomas and market places a fourth was wearing wild yes outside of one of the areas that we hear from some other big tech companies you you know like an Amazon is the cloud business and I know Ali Baba had has made some investments there and help how big the businesses that getting for Ali Baba but I mean it's nowhere near the size of Amazon's I actually don't have the number to hands of what how big Ali Baba's is right now you know they also pushing that outside of China but it's they kind of have had have advantage in that you know in the home market it's harder for someone like Google Amazon always mark soft to advance that dag that cloud offering that given there is a preference to used to use home competitors if it'll possible yeah I got to say these manufactured holidays wow you know I mean this whole idea of a Black Friday and cyber Monday in singles day how successful are they Alex I think that they'd look big because he's a success and Ali Baba's case because you know they have good people can use that that forms and use that for do they have to give really serious discounts in order to lure people or is it just you know alright it's singles everybody go buy stuff I think that it is to get the growth I think it looks like they have to do that you know people have been doing a reading doing for years they gonna come back into it again and again but as with any sort of new products to when he when you when it's early days it drives huge amount of growth and never to be a certain point that great sauce a tape and then you start have to be a little bit more creatively seen at least with the iPhone you know apple as fine you ways of getting people in and and offering you know sort of trade ins and discounts that sort of thing so I think it's been a success weather constraints assesses different things Tim kopen our colleague in my colleague and bring back pending in Asia and make the point that I actually given the Jack ma is stepping down it might be an opportunity for Ali Baba to make something of a reset to sort of say what do we need the singles dating anymore we can move on from it and actually it's his baby and frankly it society misguided thing difficult measure to actually you know tell anything serious about the business beyond just paying a lot of tension a company for one day when we don't really know if it has any significant impact on that bottom line and the indications are that it may be doesn't Alex mentioned earlier that Ali Bob is considering a I guess a listing on the on it Asian exchange there in Hong Kong what's the status of that is that still on as far as we know yes there was all our colleagues have the scoop last week that they were pushing forward with a a plan to list fifteen billion dollars worth race fifteen bought billion dollars were on the Hong Kong stock exchange the had to have been in serious doubt initial plans for that to happen over the summer and of course there's a huge amount of uncertainty in Hong Kong right now with all the demonstrations and so that was one of the reasons why it is being put on the back burner for just a bit this is an endorsement all of the you know the validity of being on the stock exchange one of the reasons that historically Chinese companies haven't listed in Hong Kong is because the Hong Kong stock exchange have the same rules as the British want namely one shot one site and they change those rules in recent years in order to attract the likes of Ali Baba the likes of ten cent these Chinese behemoths to have taken the listings to connect in the form of American depositary receipts logic and so this is an endorsement of of the fact that the Hong Kong market is a valuable one for them and that despite you'll be incessantly they still see value in your selling sending us a chunk of that business that Alex what thank you so much for being with us Alice what about columnist with Bloomberg opinion joining us from London on singles day a raging success for Ali Baba questionable about what that means exactly for the broader Chinese consumer but none the less it encouraging sign up for some meanwhile it is important to just note that the Hong Kong violence was escalating and I did it it didn't push down the Hong saying index by about three percent people getting very concerned about what would happen in this stems from I ate the solidification of the control over the the territory and you had of course Beijing coming out and saying that only a patriot would be able to run the city just furthering escalating attentions there so a lot took to
