Who Was George Fredrick Handel
"Welcome back to another episode of five minutes in Church history. On this episode, we're talking about a composer George, Frederic Handel and I resist the urge to have upon here and say that we going to get a handle on handle. But let's get a handle on hindle. He was born in sixteen, Eighty five in Hallo- Germany the importance of that year is it was the same year as the birth of Johann Sebastian Bach sixteen eighty five was a great year for the birth of composers apparently, and now Bach to handle and I promise. I'm done with punts. Well handle was originally set to be a lawyer but he loved music and he quickly showed his prowess as an organist and at composing, and so he said off to be a musician. He spent some time traveling around Italy and then he was musician for the elector of Hanover. Now, the importance of the elector of Hanover was that he was the heir to the throne of England and when Queen and died childless the elector of Hanover became King George the. First of England handle moved with him to London and the year was seventeen off and from then on hand spent the rest of his life in Britain, and he's while born in Germany and German descent is known as an English composer under George. The first t founded the Royal Academy of Music, which he directed for fifteen years early on in London Handel composed for King George the first his famous water music or as in handles beloved German Tongue vassar music. The first time it was performed for King George loved it so much. He ordered it played again and then he ordered it played again. So debuted three times in a row in seventeen seventeen. After. He finished his time handle finished his time at the Royal Academy of Music. He spent much of the Seventeenth Thirties writing operas, and then he said about to write what might be considered his magnum opus the Messiah. Handel. was by all accounts obsessed with work. We would say today a workaholic and he poured himself into his work as a composer as a musician. Sadly in seventeen fifty one he went blind and then in seventeen, fifty, nine, the age of seventy four he died in, London? He was buried in Westminster Abbey and of course, the grand organ of the Abbey and the choir played his beloved. Messiah. Handel one said I should be very sorry if I only entertained them referring to the people who listen to his music, he wanted people to not only be entertained but to beat moved by his music and that was certainly the case with the Messiah. The Messiah was first performed in Dublin on April thirteen, seventeen, forty two it was performed the next year in London and King George the second was in the audience attending and when he got to the chorus for part to the Hallelujah Chorus King George, the second was moved that he stood up, and of course, when the king stands everyone else stands in. So the whole theater stood alongside of the king and that started tradition of standing during the Hallelujah course. The Messiah is in three parts. Part one begins with prophecies of the. Coming Messiah from Isaiah and Psalms, and takes us right to the shepherds watching their flock at night on Bethlehem's hillsides. Then part two covers the passion, the suffering in-depth of Christ and ends with that Hallelujah course part three picks up with Christ's resurrection and continues with his ascension and what theologians call his present session in glory, and then it ends with the day of judgement to come as the Messiah the king comes in glory. Well, that is Handel's Messiah and when he was finished writing the musical score, he signed it s D. G. Solely Dale Gloria.

Walking in Faith So You Can Run Your Race
"Messages. Christianity doesn't begin with a do. It begins with a done. Know who we are in Christ Adams First, day, on earth was not a day of work. It was a day of rest. He was created on the sixth day, and the seventh day was a day of rest, God blessed the seventh day. He rested on that day. So I think it's interesting that Adam began and rest. He didn't begin work. and. We need to realize that that God didn't call us to work real hard to change ourselves, so we could be real good. He wants us to have relationship with him, and then wanting to do the right thing will come out of the overflow of that relationship with him is not gonNA come, because we try really hard to be good. Are. Try really hard to change ourselves. Well Jesus are high priest. And he doesn't have to atone for his sins because he never sent. However he came in the form of a human, so he knows everything that we go through. We have a high praise. Hebrews four says that understands our weaknesses an iron. Because, he's been tempted in all points just like we have yet without sin, so he knows every patient that we go through. He experienced. Do, but yet he never sin. So he made the final sacrifice. And the Bible says that when he ascended on high, now get this. He sat down. And I started getting interested in why it says so often in the Bible that he sat then. To Him who is seated on the throne well, that should've said a lot more to the Jewish people than it does to us, but they didn't understand I can explain this to you today and say under that old covenant. There was no chair in the holy of holies. There was no place for them to rest no way to rest, but now Jesus. Sits. When he won the Bible says can sat down I. Mean that should have been like. We should have been doing the Hallelujah song before. He sat down. It's over Hallelujah Hallelujah. Can enjoy the in a Christian. I'm not a singer, so. That's why they didn't give me a microphone up here. But the better news. Even the better news is down in Hebrews two six where it says and we are seated in Christ with him in heavenly places. Do. You realize that being in Christ everything he got you get. Now we can live our lives to a vantage point of. Being seated in Christ, which means we can do everything we do. Having entered the rest of God. The rest got offers us as a super natural rest, and it's not arrest from work, but arrest in work in other words. Not You know this is my third time to do this. Since starting at seven o'clock last night, and so my body will be tired, but my inner man is renewed because what I'm full of life inside, even though my outer man is getting a little bit tired and I'll be tired or the time I get home. By the time I eat my dinner I'll be like. But inside. Come on church if you got it inside. If you got that life inside the Apostle Paul said. My Outer Man Perish is day by day, but my inner man is renewed a man. I'll be seventy seven and four months, and I just feel so alive inside. Inside it's what you got going for you inside. Worrying so much about everything that's going on outside your findings and your kids and your neighbors What's going on inside? Christ is in me the same power that raised Christ from the dead dwells in me. I can do whatever I need to do through Christ. Who Strengthens me?
A Coronavirus Update with Dr. Steven Taback
"Look I know we've all had about enough of this. Kobe, nineteen thing we're tired of the politics of it. We're tired of the endless conflicting reports what we should do what we shouldn't do what we should wear and not wear you know surfaces transferred disease, or maybe they don't. We're ready to open schools. We can open restaurants, baseball, or maybe we're not. Oh and please don't blame my co host for this opening. I didn't tell them about it and so forgive him, and you can blame me. This is a particular pleasure today. I, get to chat it up with my very best friend. Dr Steven Taback. who also just happens to be? The quadruple board certified doctor of Internal Medicine Pulmonary Disease Critical Care and neuro critical care whatever that means. He's also on the frontlines fighting the COVID battle for us every day at his hospitals, which were eternally grateful for and by the way he saved my dad's life twice. Dr Steven Tailback. You Doing Stephen? Doing great good to hear you in and see you at least virtually anyway. It's weird, isn't it? We would normally see each other all the time right at least twice a week during the week, and then on the weekends dinner, and by the way I know you've been teetotalling for like three months. You'RE GONNA have to explain that to the group why I am drinking the mcallen twenty-five that you gave me for my birthday, so thank you very much happy birthday. I'm glad to see that. You still have some left in the bottle as of. mid-may. So, why is it? YOU'RE NOT DRINKING STEVE? From my perspective thing on the front lines you Wanna do everything you can to. Protect yourself immunologically, and so my goal was to optimize my immune system, considering the fact that there is no scene, but in order to optimize one's immune system. You want to eat healthier. You WanNa sleep better. And when I looked at the things that I was doing in my life I was not exercising as much as I would have liked to. My sleep was always fragmented. Fragmented and I do know. The alcohol suppresses the immune system not that I. You know I have more than probably one drink a week. When I see you I. Never drink otherwise, but nevertheless I felt that in order to really give myself the best possible defense against this miserable virus I should do. Everything could now to optimize my immune system until you you eating differently to. Eating Vegan I've been avoiding caffeine which has helped my my sleep tremendously of avoided alcohol I've started back on a regular exercise, so exercise has something to do with your immune system absolutely exercises very important for your immune system why it's a very good question I'm not sure I have an answer is simple answer as to why, but exercised absolutely increase the circulation. It stimulates your your. Your metabolic rate kind of wakes up your cells, and it optimizes cellular performance and metabolic performance, and at the end of the day. That's what your immune system is is the doing constant surveillance of cancer cells is doing constant surveillance for viruses and bacteria, and you wanted at optimal performance, but you're telling me that a glass of macallan twenty five is not so good for my. My immune system. It's certainly not good for your immune system. Now the question is, does it actually have any deleterious effects truly having a glass? You know a week or so probably not, but what would it do to your system? That would affect your immune system. What we do know that you do have we call Milo suppression and Rith Rope Suppression. That is you stop manufacturing red. Red Blood Cells. People who use alcohol to excess clearly are have increased susceptibility to bacterial infections viral infections. They manufacture less red blood cells so obviously they're gonNA. have difficulty adequately getting oxygen to vital organs. Organs are going to suffer in terms of their peak performance speaking of having a little fun with it. I'M GONNA put your feet to the fire a little bit right away. Before months ago, Steve we had the honor of being joined by Dr Suzanne Donovan, who broached the concept of this corona virus and you guys? We're talking about it. And I almost could hear battle hymn of the Republican, the background and a Glory Glory Hallelujah and you guys were talking about how America was so strong and so well designed as far as our health care system. We really knew what we were doing. Chances are this corona. Thing wasn't going to be a big deal for us as it would be potentially some other parts of the world. That was then. This is now a steve. The US has four percent of the world's population and we're currently running at twenty five percent of the world, global cases and deaths. Why is that first and foremost? Let's say that the superpower of the world absolutely blew it as far as efficiency in terms of testing in terms of reporting in terms of personal protective equipment. We really were not ready, even though we could have been ready, we missed multiple steps in the preparatory process.

Why Do Ladybugs Have Spots? Do Dragonflies Bite?
"We're talking about dragonflies and ladybugs. And we're going to be joined by someone. We've talked to before on an episode. We did about moths. I'm kept McFarland with a Remote Center Frigo Studies Research Biologist and I like to study insects and all kinds of other flying things. Why in the world do you like to study insects of all the creatures you could study? Well you know. I've studied birds and I've studied mammals, but insects to in my world. Everything you can think of. That's in the movies insects do it. They do strange things that we'd never imagined possible, and and it just excites me to go out there and find out what they're doing. Strange things like what lift something that would be like US lifting a car or leap tall buildings that kind of thing. Yeah. They're like the Superman the animal world, they can do all of things that we couldn't dream of Fahd of the sky for hundreds of feet. Fly Long distances. Long distances like three thousand mile sometimes longer than we never imagined swim underwater for long periods of time. I mean you name it. They do it so. The water and walk on the ceilings. Yeah, so it's just crazy things they do. There are so many kinds of insects estimates range between two million and thirty million different types of insects. If you count up the total number of these animals themselves, scientists think there are ten Quintillo individual insects on our planet. But we can't do an episode about all of them. Just think how long that would be. We're going to focus on to cool types of insects. You have sent us questions about dragonflies and ladybugs, but even those are categories of insects with lots of different species within them, as we'll find out more about later, but first. Let's dive into some of your questions. My Name's illegal. I live in Seattle Washington in my question is. Why do ladybugs have spots? Claire. I am six years old. I live in rent. Would Missouri and My question is how do ladybugs get their spots I Aria that result I live grateful or Kaleida it by question is how to ladybugs have spots well. Here's the interesting thing about ladybugs. There's a lot of different kinds of ladybugs and the ones that we usually think of are the ones that are red with black spots or sometimes a little white spots on them. And that represents maybe you. A quarter of the species of ladybugs, there's a whole bunch of other ladybugs that are black, Brown, red white, even some kind of other colors mixed in like yellows, and so the traditional thing we think of the ladybugs of the ones that are black and red, but there's all kinds of others that have all kinds of other patterns and colors associated with them how they get their spots. I'm not really sure how they exactly get their spouse, but one of the things is spots. Spots are the patterns are probably on them, so that is a warning to other insects or even birds that they might not want to eat them, because they might taste poorly, and so it's a way to defend themselves against being eaten by birds or other insects to some types of ladybugs have a certain number of spots and others have a different number, or could you know the same kind of lady bug lined up ten different individual bugs. You'd get ten different spot patterns. The answer is yes. It happens, both so there are lady bugs that have certain number of spots in evac through even named after that, so there's a native lady bug in North America called. The nine spotted lady bug, and it has nine actually, and there's the seven spotted lady bug, and it usually has seven spots. There's a twenty spotted lady bug, and you get the picture. There's different kinds of ladybugs that have different amount of spots, but sometimes within those groups they can have a variety of spots, so there's one. One kind of Lady Bug comes from Asia called the Asian ladybugs that's been introduced. It's been brought here in an outlives. North America and sometimes it can have almost no spots, and sometimes it can have maybe a dozen or more spots on it, so it's really variable. Compared to say, the nine spotted lady bug, which almost always has nine spots, and we have listeners and I think every continent. EXCEPT ANTARCTICA, we haven't gotten a question from Antarctica and do ladybugs also live on every continent except Antarctica. I'm pretty sure they are on every continent, except Antarctica. Yes, and that brings us to this question. Hello, my name is Hallelujah I live in. Rwanda CA golly. My question is. How many different types of ladybugs are there? There are over five thousand different species or types of ladybugs in the world. And as Kent said, it's not just the spots that vary, their colors can vary, too, but those colors are basically always there to warn predators that the lady bug will taste terrible now. Some of you are probably wondering why they're called ladybugs. Anyway or maybe you aren't even sure what insect were actually talking about. Not everyone calls them ladybugs for example. If you live in the United Kingdom you might call them, lady, birds or Ladybird Beetles and Kent says he actually doesn't like the name Lady Bug because they're Beatles, not
Why Do Ladybugs Have Spots? Do Dragonflies Bite?

Patrick's Coming Out Story
"Come out to hear from Patrick who's now a successful Mike artist but he got relentlessly bullied for being gay or growing up in Northern Ireland. I identify as male And I I have an interesting journey with my gender I think because I started doing drag or Soy's drag when I was about fifteen stain kind of progressed. I moved to Manchester when I was eighteen on. I pretty much was wearing full. Face to makeup wakes clothes everything every single day. I think I am used to chester. Oh God I can do this. I'm free to to wear as much as I want. And where did you come from that? You can wear what you want. I grew up in Northern Ireland so I could and I did wanted by think I was always trying to be little bit. Respectful of my parents particularly my mom because she was a little bit uncomfortable at the time about me wearing makeup and bought me wearing weeks and and looking of the Yes. I moved to Manchester and it all sort of exploded e kind of all sort of mixed together. It wasn't really drag. I've never really done to the performances. I tried failed dressing. Dressing up was dressing up and still is for me now and I kind of stopped doing it for a very long time as my career is make posits kicked off. I didn't really have any time. I think there's a good three or four years where I didn't put any makeup on at all but now I'm at a point where I wouldn't even know what it's called I. I'm a man who is gay who likes to wear addresses woman. Sometimes but I don't see myself as a drag queen but juicy self is somewhere on the sort of gender fluid spectrum may be I guess so by just don't feel like home fits with me if you turn because everyone likes putting terms things. These days I would say gender fluid would be appropriate up you would prefer gender. Fluid suspended male. I don't really care. That's the thing that when people these conversations like I think about a lot but I don't ever think about all. This is the term that identify with the most. I'm just I'm just. I'm Patrick and some does I like to lady some days. I looked like a man. Will you go out shopping or go out and make you might just as woman? No I'm on? I think that's probably why the the line is in a sense. I'm why wouldn't see myself as being gender fluid for me? Gender fluidity is someone who I probably would have been more like eight nine years ago when I would go out house with makeup on and with silly outfits on in fact my what am I. University lecturer actually brought me into her office. University and asked me should be cool. You anything different remain is that do we give you a different name? Which would like different pronoun or anything? I thought no and I thought what she questions to ask my. I'm just wearing these clothes. I didn't understand why. Why did he was different? But looking back then I was definitely much more gender fluid whereas these days it's more just address up that's quite progressive really to serve. She was a lovely woman. What's your pronouns? So it's the right way about. Isn't it to actually ask the pers- yeah definitely definitely? I really appreciate. That looking back was a lovely thing of Helen. Do well done Helen so looking back. Can you remember the first time that you may be questioned your sexuality then to know why I think I always questioned bisexuality? Once I knew what sexuality was I knew I didn't fit into the normal. I remember having imaginary friends as really young boy and I always wanted them to be boys. I always wanted to be called Tom. Which is really weird because if my flatmate listen to this my flatmates called so I don't want him to think I have a thing for the boy called Tom. I always want to hug them. I always wanted them to be close. I remember it being because they were boys. We have family video of me when I was a kid. Really really young and our next door neighbor. Child I'm running around child's Charles like calling out for him because I was probably obsessed with and then I think I grew up and I realized what sexuality was. It was like. This is always something that I've thought I've always been attracted to boys and also the messages we getting about people that were male light boys of your school in. Belfast was yes I went to school. It's an all boys grammar. School in Belfast. Very up at south one of these kind of really wheaties for school. Everything around may was telling me that everything that I was into everything I was interested was wrong messages. Where you're hearing. I think proved very young age. I was always some other was like the victim of bullying in a sense. A growing up in Northern Ireland with a British accent With Army family and Camp. So you you were bullied for being English Bison Primary School it was always English and getting a degree because of my accents and then when I went to secondary school turned into A. You're you're gay. Boy Gameboy busted. Dumbo buster bums. The walls was always a catchphrase. That was said when people woods when I would walk down there the corridor. And how old were you I mean throughout secondary school. So from twelve onwards funny because I came out and primary school do yes. It is well. This is an early one. I asked boy to be my boyfriend in Palm. He's GonNa last year of Primary School. I come into how all that would have. Been eleven eleven. The education system is a little bit different Nolan. I think he leave a year or something later. I can't really remember that I recalled. I was very good friends with him and I found him. I won't spend my boyfriend so I asked him. I remember what he said. I gotcha I gave them a note. I remember I remember sort of slipping him tonight. What he boyfriend but I recall what happened after that however I do recall giving him a phone call after school to talk to him because we would every night and his mom picks up the phone and I said speech Cowan please. Is this Patrick. So yes said well. I've heard about this. Fancying thing the what Jamaican and she said. I need to stop disgusting for how this is coming from light. This boy's mum and this is probably one of the youngest coming has gazed. I've heard you were ten or eleven. You try to get a boyfriend boyfriend then. The mother intervene jess and that was kind of that was that because I I remember being on the phone. Remember sitting on my mom's bad being on the phone shutting down the phone. That may be thinking. Oh this is wrong because I didn't really think anything wrong. I guess at the time apartments quite just wants to boyfriend but he obviously thought something wrong with it because he went straight out his mother. I so God what happened with the friendship. I mean that was the end of primary school more or less. Oh I can't quite recall whether or not we stayed friends. We probably did stay friends but when I went to different school you know secondary school so I didn't speak to him again and then there was one boy from my primary school went to grammar school with mate and I remember saying. Don't tell anyone like about the stuff that was kind of kept hush hush and then he's not telling people but don't but not until like our second year of secondary school and then everything's coming out and then I saw his playing to little bit. Once I came to terms with my sexuality and I was afraid of. I think I've sort of jumped straight into it in the sense that I had a boyfriend. I think had my first boyfriend when I was fourteen. Thirteen fourteen and he lived around the corner from my house. So we get the school bus with each other so you did you ever have any girlfriends it right into the boys in primary school. I have so many girlfriends yoga. Yeah in fact. I really love laser device. Full circle moment recently. That my my my main girlfriend primary school I have makeup for recently mostly. Nice but they would just like playing Casey chases and primary school and yeah. It's a secondary school and I had my first boyfriend when I was about fourteen and the dramas about cost because I actually joined the cadet force and my my secondary school And he was one of the one of the sergeants and he was older he must have been bus eighteen when I was about fourteen to. Everybody obviously found out about what was that reaction. Then if they like previously recalling Ubembe boy and abusing you because you are and then they found that you actually had a boyfriend in school and the school in the catas- when I think about those that are times I think buckle news stories. You know. It wasn't all that bad. I got grief everybody. Everybody has something to say. I was ostracized from everybody apart from my very very close knit friends. But I didn't ever quite lucky in a sense I never have enough. I didn't get that much abuse a on me although to be ostracized by the majority of your school colleagues. It's got to be very alienating. Very lonely place to be as well. I think actually is probably the most difficult people some of the teachers to accept or not so. I remember one of my house shooter. Whoever he was obviously being be is to shave my eyebrows off and draw them on again. Of course course I getting a lot of people about and he looks at you. You're not really helping yourself are you. And that was his way of dealing with them. Just GonNa Suck my teeth now just very much that I think about. There's so many stories from my school The head of pastoral care at my school he told my best friend. My best friend was crazy like a piece of artwork and included a picture of the two of us in makeup and to be pulled birth bus into into the school officer. Talk about the fact that we harangue makeup in this picture and he's holding my friend Anton. The Envy's children turned out to be. He gave that he would assign them not the head of Pastoral Care School. Well he's in the wrong job. I know awful. Man Said no support tool then from anyone in terms of authority figures. Yeah but I think very much. My my school wasn't a great place to be gay and with what was this. The nineties noughties The northeast expansively. Brezler not a Northern Ireland so back in in the way I mean. They've only just got marriage. Equality abortion right. Yeah exactly Hallelujah. Thank God but they're so backward. I think of my Johnny was coming out with a little bit easier than of my friends because my family are English. Not to say the Ron. Lots of very supportive very open Irish people because of course there are but I guess my family went as religious especially my dad and I didn't really have thought that traumatic past of of living in Northern Ireland. So what stage did you come out to your parents. Bearing in mind the trying to get boyfriend at the age of ten in progress and then got one by fourteen. I'm guessing he came out quite early to them you well. I came out to my Mama earlier. My Dad moved away to Luxembourg when I was about twelve. I think he moved off work. So this basically he. He wasn't really on the on the scene so I think I was about sixteen came onto him by counts. My Mum probably about twelve thirteen and it was a conversation again. Sat on the same bad. I phoned Calgary from. I couldn't say the words I remember trying to say. I think I'm gay and not being able to say gay and saying I I tell you but I caught sight yet and Saying oh I don't know and then going through listen different questions than eventually. We got to that. She's like Oh you gay. Yes yes let's sets and okay right. I think you're a bit young. So maybe we'll have this conversation when you're older okay. So then every now and then it was a diesel thinking guy and that was. That was pretty much for my mom. I mean my mom was always quite supportive. It's my my older sister is guy I was. My sister had the real hard time coming out so I could. So she came out. I know she came out later. I came up so see is five years older than me. Okay I think she was about nineteen twenty when she came out and it was traumatic. My mom would always say my gay people. I might like gay man. I just can't stand spins. And that was her catchphrase and she's very very much the complete opposite of that now. My sister's marriage has a little boy. My mom loves my sister. I think that's just Hearn prejudice her and

Once the Alpha came on I took a little bit of a sip of my my worldwide. Okay so I was waiting for that Park. I I knew I was GONNA get excited. Okay so in preparation for our watch along I was like what do I need to know about Halle Berry and then I was like what happened with Halle Berry Eric Bagan so that that was where my research took me nothing useful about our film career? I just like what happened. That relationship and I found his interview with her and Oprah and she was saying that right after she got the Oscar is when she found out the Eric was having all those affairs and so she went into triage. She couldn't celebrate having the Oscar. She went to triage on her relationship and it wasn't just one woman. He was having affairs a whole time. They were together okay so I don't know maybe. She felt like she wanted to show him what he was missing your Halle Berry. It's all over the news that you're manage cheating on you. That's a real kick to the EGO. So maybe she was like listen up one word French director. I know I have an Oscar. I don't care I want to make this movie and I wanna be in the sexiest costume. Your budget can handle and he was like we. Okay I mean I hear that okay. I hear that advice advice here. We go.

"I just say at this point. We've been watching this move for a minimum despite the things that were pointing out the that are already about it. There is one thing that I want to bring to our attention. She has surrounded by non White People Alley. Berry is just living in a city where there are just some white people in the people who are there are just are evil just planning that seed that Sharon stone and Lambert Wilson are the bad guys and everybody else basically is a peon who suffers because of them again radical bones like there's some interesting ideas in this superhero movie. It just feels like either. They didn't know what they had. They didn't know to do with it By the way I wanna I WANNA say that. Halley is channeling Janet Jackson in in this first part of the movie. I'll for sure for sure. She just seems she just seems shy in the way the Janet could pretend to be. Shy are actually just be shy. Janet never pretended to be shy. Yeah Yeah Oh boy. I love movie basketball. Kids definitely it. Should be like a weird cliche atro- but I just actually love it. Oh wait I spoke too soon because now we're in a kind of music video is this.

That's as good as what she out on that. Tv show. Oh No oh boy. How do you act this? How do you act like if you're a halley rehearsing this moment? Are you watching your cats? Do this okay. I've been trying to be on board with everything that's happening in this movie. But can you riddle me this? Why is she terminent? Cuban actual cat like no Batman in the history of Batman ever hung upside down right. Like I'm really trying to. I believe Michael Kids Batman does sleep upside fair but he doesn't eat like flies for exactly he can resist the urge to other bat thing. Climb I do recall Michelle. Pfeiffer and Batman returns bending over in like having herself some Milk Earth. A kid has growl or something. You know it's like there is a small price to pay but Halle Berry the IRS. Went after her on this one for the cat tax. She's taking it to another level entirely. This is my favorite Halle Berry. Version O. She was like I. Don't care.

"This is a corkscrew. This is what turns the crank this. This becomes her her the driving. Engine Right Cattleman you know how in real life those guys are probably really handsome. In the movies they look generic. They just like generic bad guys. Yeah they put like Weird Matt powder on their faces to make them less attractive. It's like if you splash them with warm water. You'd be like damn on. The one hand is kind of cool that Halle Berry is joining this. Lineage of Cat Women and the movie is making. It seem like there is a lineage of actual cat women but okay. The movie can do that but on the other hand is joining this long family of other cat women. It's like Earth Kit and Julie Newmar on the show and Michelle pfeiffer perhaps most famously and then there's an hatheway in the third. Christopher Nolan Batman Movie Batman Deduct Nate Rises Vent Razzoo's. Thank you very much. The on the other hand Halle Berry is playing a cat woman who has nothing to do with the DC universe. I don't know where this woman is from. I don't know I don't know what town this is like. We're calling AH got them. But we're being real nice because first of all every other cat woman as far as I know was named Selina Kyle and they were all basically thieves and cap burglars and they didn't really have superpowers. They just like it was a comic book. They just they were. They weren't bad they were just drawn that way. If you know what I'm saying they they. They were thieves who happened to have real agility and wall climbing prowess and that sort of stuff and Batman was really into them. Oh yes she does know. Erica is this. She becomes cat woman. Is this origin story. Does the cat have to fall in there with her to I mean? This is the only kind of suspense I like these days. It's not spider man. It's not spiderman or spiderwoman for that matter. Although it's up this might be up for debate when when the accident starts but I feel like it's a combination of venom and Mr Manhattan and like I dunno like it's all of these things wrapped up in one. He happened to be standing right next to the box by the way he's like a black woman near city. Nobody'll miss her. It's fine just turn on the pipes. Honey what what underground labyrinth is where I? I don't know but you know what the truth is Jenna. This is where they dump all the chemicals into the river. That's not a water water. Val that's a that is for dumping the chemicals into whatever whatever. Gotham river is. That's how that's like. That's the bill in Bath Wesley. Doesn't this park. Kinda REMIND YOU OF LEMONADE. A little bit beyond say visual album. It looks very it. Looks so similar. Do you think this was ambiance as mood board for. Oh my God. I mean it's entirely possible both characters. They are in this room space there in this watery tunnel. They are going through this period of deep incubation station Halle Berry just beyond say journeying through an underworld dealing with Pluto dealing with Haiti's I mean very colty very witchy. Look I hope the links there I approve into it? Oh that's brilliant less okay now so. I do some questions here. What are the real cast in the digital cats like in? How long did Halley have to lay there until they all do they were supposed to? Do you know what I was just thinking though. This is the real cats and it's better than cats. You know cats. Kohl's is that what they're called. I forgot this. Is the Jelly coat yet? That's the ROKA. This is some carriers proudest moment. Wait what's IT GONNA do to her? Giver Co Vid. Is the origin story. Recover not so dark so I used to have a cat and it did this to me in the mornings. It loves soon my chest and BURRI. That's cat breath in my face. I never I never had anything. Half succeeding happen is. What's happening right now? So I wonder if you're Halley. You know like the reason you put up with being a mousy sort of Klutz for the first twenty minutes of this movie is that you know that you're at some point. GonNa get to kick some people and jump on some railings or something. I mean Halle Berry had already been in superhero movies. I mean she was in some of the best expert movies in my opinion X. Men which came out in two thousand and the next two two thousand three is that right and she played storm. You know and it's interesting actually remember because I love those movies and in a way she was kind of the weakest link there too and it's it's not really her fault. They just didn't really give her a lot to do in. Those movies gave her a bad white wig and she just made it really windy. Remember cyclops Zoe's like storm a little cover and she would grab the armrest in my car is would roll back in her head and the fog would ascend and it's like were. She was my favorite x men. And yes that's what happened her. So maybe highly read the script and was like I do WanNa crouch crab walk down an alley and look at some spiders in high def. Yes that is this. Is this true to her origin story. Does she fall Nevada Chemicals? I gotta look this up just like she get bit by the cat that she found the chemicals. I just need to know I love that. You need to know this I just. I'm very curious. Do you would ask you would ask Let Me Rack my brain for a second. I don't recall this happening to any cat woman. An any of Bob Kane's additions. Account woman like it even subsequent additions cow woman. She just likes to steal things. She just a thief. No cats gave her a virus and turned her in to an actual cat. The as far as I know the other women just liked to impersonate cats because it was a sexy thing to do because she is the creation of men. No women have had any say in the creation of this character. She's just been pulled on some strings by some dude. Let me just read you? What Bob Cain? The creator of cat woman thought he was doing when he invented this lady. This cat woman Creator Bob Kane saying in his Memoir Batman in me I felt that women were feline creatures and men were more like dogs. Well dogs are faithful and friendly cats cool. Detached and reliable. Cancer is hard to understand as women are. You always need to keep a woman at arm's length. We don't want anyone talking over. Idols and women have a habit of doing that. So there's a love resentment thing with women. I guess women feel that. I'm being chauvinistic to speak this way but I do feel. I've had better relationships with male friends than women. I feel like this unnatural. Binary explains decades of Sour relationships between men and women and then just wowed all goes back to the DC comics universe. This explains so much about the American psyche. Screw Jane Austen. We're going for Bob Kane. Bob Kane started at all who fully.

Is Bob Iger back as Disney CEO? He abruptly resigned from the helm in February
"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown. Joining me is Matt Felony and Matt. We've talked about Disney a lot lately because Disney is one of the most all companies are exposed to this this disaster from this pandemic and the apparent absence or inability of our leadership to the White House to figure out how to address it but Disney is as we've talked about hotels theme Parks Bob. Iger resigned abruptly. It seemed to many people including me as CEO staying on his executive chairman in February And you know this is just the strangest thing because there was just a an article that Ben Smith at the New York Times wrote in which he says that Bob Iger has now having said that he was handing the reins to Bob Capex the head of the theme parks making him. Ceo THAT BOB. Eiger has now basically resumed running Disney are. I don't know about you. I haven't seen any announcement of that or any kind of indication that there's been a change in leadership it seems important to me. It's a huge public company and a very difficult moment and and yet you know in the same column He. This author. Ben Smith says Bob Eiger has took his eye off the ball and was more worried about his legacy. But now he's back sort of like Hallelujah. I sort of feel like what really happened here because this narrative is making no sense to me and there's a lot of why whether Bob really planned that resignation as CEO and then came back. I'm there's nothing in this world that will make me believe that was planned. Yeah it's interesting because Disney clearly not clearly but some might say. Disney was responding to that article when they put out a release a few days. Later saying that Bob Shape back the other Bob Who was elevated to the CEO position in February is joining the board of directors? Which many had said was planned all along but I think the indication there was. You know the new Bob is actually in charge. It's not the old Bob. Even though the whole Bob seems to be you know giving his strong advice and being involved in these major decisions literally saying like I'm back he's like a signaling in an email or something to this journalist that he's back and I'm like what but go on. That's the question you do have someone who has decades of experience at the Walt Disney Company there in that executive chairman position and probably feels a little bit of remorse that he left this job right as the proverbial s hit the fan and a lot of people speculated. That either did know what was coming when he did that. You know at the time. He stepped down. The Shanghai Disney park had already closed due to the virus and many experts. Were saying. Listen this is a couple of weeks away from being a global pandemic. Even if the American government wasn't saying so at the time the experts were and had that information many thought that that timing was abrupt and out of nowhere and then all of a sudden were in the middle of the biggest threat to The Walt Disney Company. In perhaps ever so. I think there's probably a little bit of remorse going on there and I think there's probably a little bit of Bringing the guy with the expertise to actually manage this very very difficult time. How about giving some clarity at? I wonder if the board didn't say excuse me. What did you just do? And how is this Bob? Shaping supposed to run the theme parks because as far as I know still no successor named for that. I mean they're closed but that's not like that doesn't mean there's no duties associated with that you know how. How is this guy now running the whole whole company? I you know I'm old enough to remember. When Michael Eisner having had a very supine board for a very long time finally had gotten enough people upset that the board turned around and ultimately dismissed him. So it's not that the board cannot be awakened in in a situation like this. I just find this to be an incoherent narrative and I've never seen such credulous analysis. I guess people who who who in the observer the media world and had had mickey mouse sheets on their bed when they were growing up or something. Because I don't think any other company would be getting the benefit of the doubt that Disney has gotten. Yeah I guess we'll see as this pandemic causes more injury to the company. How big a role. Eiger will ultimately play. That's delanie former editorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday at one. Thirty on the

The God Concept in Alcoholics Anonymous
"It's probably an indicator of something. Deeply Miss Wired in my psyche that I've thought to myself multiple times man. I sure wish I used to be an alcoholic so that I could prove that step would as program is a Lotta Shit step one. A is seven step. Recovery Program is but God though right to blanket statement. That says it's literally impossible to quit drinking if you aren't religious. As one of those statements that lends itself to empirical testing and like all religious statements. That do that. It fails the test consistently there is no correlation between religiosity an addiction recovery. We'd we'd have a lot more data to work with of course if they would release their own recidivism rates but in this instance. I feel like the fact that they won't as the only data point. We really need any but to this point in my life. I've always seen two ways that you could explain this rules existence in light of the fact that is demonstrably untrue. The more cynical interpretation of course is to say that people at rock-bottom are more susceptible religious indoctrination and won't be able to fight you off as well now if you're inclined to be more charitable though you can also look at it like the bloody volleyball that Tom. Hanks talks to in castaway. Right a person who's tried and failed to quit drinking especially a person's failed repeatedly at that. Might need an imaginary hand to hold your the only way that they're likely to believe the person you can do. This is if that person is lying about who you is in this scenario so you know they tack on some God Shit and they say no matter how insurmountable the goal might seem. Our guy is dependent so he can handle it. Of course even that. More charitable interpretation. Even if it's all the fucking way correct would be insufficient to explain the first step because you can get all that shit without insisting on God bully right. You could just have that one of the available menu items and still gain all the same benefits from it now in the past. That's where I've left it intellectually because let's face it the fact that the charitable explanation just doesn't add up as well as the cynical one isn't usually in need of further review when we're talking about religious questions but I've been thinking more and more about this since I quit smoking. And another possible factor occurred to me the other day so first of all. Quick Update. By the time you hear this it will have been ten weeks since my last cigarette. Thank you thank you know. Seriously thank you because if I hadn't done it in such a public way and if you guys hadn't been holding me to account and if so many of you hadn't reached out to help it probably wouldn't have been able to do it so thank you and to be honest like at this point. I'm so damn confident that like I'm saying it's been ten weeks even though I'm recording this motherfucker. A week in advance and throughout. I've been trying to keep my eye open for what purpose God might have served in all of this. You can't help but replay this whole nine week ordeal. Imagine what if I had been Christian throughout because you know to be perfectly honest with you. Quitting to this point hasn't been as hard as I feared it would be big in the first couple of days. Were pretty miserable. I'm hardly all the way out of the woods. But ultimately I found it to be much less difficult to my fears had led me to believe it would be imagine Christian right and even better measuring just became a Christian or like you know I was already a Christian but I just rededicated my life to Christ or whatever exactly the kind of thing that Christians might do when they're turning over the kind of leave that you would turn over right before you quit smoking. After thirty years so Christian me praise to mighty Jesus to hold my hand. Carry me through this. You know because Baikal e a higher power strong enough to do it and then Lo and behold I observe all the same shit that atheist may just observed quitting turns out not to be as hard as I thought it would be. But it's no longer though because I was mistaken about the level of difficulty is because God was on my side. You know. Maybe the guy was could've done it but he certainly wouldn't have done it. So painlessly praise the Lord. Hallelujah of course in this instance. God didn't actually help me quit smoking. I quit myself and then I gave him all the credit. So what purpose did he serve? Did we just land back on that cynical interpretation we started with will consider this? There are a lot of things that I should do with my life and most of them are easier than giving up thirty year nicotine habit just demonstrably easier than that. I should give more money to charity. I should volunteer my time. I should eat better. I should exercise more. I should be a better husband. I should get angry at fewer inanimate objects and if I just proved to myself that I can quit smoking. Rake Ed traditionally considered to be one of the hardest. Damn things a person can be called upon to do how the fuck can justify continuing to fuck up all that other stuff. How can I rectify ability to quit smoking? But my inability to be as attentive as should be Lucinda. Well God sure makes a great excuse. Doesn't he after all if I quit smoking not because of my own willpower but rather because I beseeched God and he heard me? Well I don't have to do all this other stuff. I I can't go pastoring God. Every time. There's a problem in my life now can I? Sometimes I gotTA handle this shit on my own. I don't have the kind of willpower. It takes to quit smokin or quit. Drinking I failed at that shit repeatedly. Only God could do that. Look I'll admit it can be kind of intimidating to realize that something you've thought yourself incapable of for a really long time was easier than you thought it would be. What other comfortable limitations are illustrating? What else is possible? Don't get me wrong. I'm all for believing in yourself but if you do it correctly it can be downright

That's that's the seasonal speak for me I and I'm currently practicing my craft here in the beautiful beautiful state of Oregon and In this season of my career I have the privilege of stewarding landscapes for wellbeing and helping helping those. That are very similar. My shoes my I boots them speak that are the. Oh the highly sensitive types that are often knee deep in carrying for others. Whether that's it's recognized or not recognized but we're the keepers of all moving parts and and as effector 's having having a safe place sacred place that that is nourishing that reminds us of our true nature. That's that's that's the work on currently doing and feel so privileged to do. Is that really gets to that piece of wellbeing so that we can go go on take good care of others so so I have this privileged and to work with folks to keep those spaces spaces as keepers of all the moving parks and enjoy of it. The joy of it. Yeah to not to not always is be centered in the the hard slog of it. which so much of life can be But but to focus on the joy of it and the moments that really fuel us and you you do this work any in a couple of different ways so I'd love you to walk people through the different branches of what you do and and and I'm not even sure I know all of them but I am very familiar failure with your Your landscape design consultation work with with clients with your really really what I find very peaceful encouraging mentorship in this way of being on social media. And where where I happened to find US instagram. And then I know you do this on a personal basis in your own life as kind of seed from which you lead out into the wider world Said thank you when you know there armony branches. I think that's you know what's what is above is so below that means there's many routes there's many routes to this work that I do. Okay and on one side. There's a deep an unwavering Magic that that keeps me focused on the idea that we are deeply connected to nature we we have nature nature as our backdrop as our alleluia choir. Absolutely as our flash mob our supporters. So this idea of restorative the the word that's within the name of my company restorative is certainly restorative in terms of our relationship with nature. And how we treat and respect. This planet restorative in the renaissance of that connection connection. But it's also an opportunity. You know my work with restorative landscapes creating restore of landscapes is to restore the the sacredness within to recognize that that we are a secret ecosystem system onto ourselves. So when. I'm working with someone whether it be through coaching. Or mentorship or one on one design. The there's layers the mcharg match it right layers in how we approach that relationship in that repair so that that we can simultaneously sometimes known or unknown we can simultaneously. He'll landscape and and heal ourselves so restorative landscapes piece was. I can I to me in the career in this is my third career career. I come from a biomed and social work background and so bringing those two ranch or having those two branches has really helped me on on the Science Geek side. The part of me that really geeks out about what's going on physiologically with us as we are entering into spaces that I have a feeling a sense of awe like what's going on with all the work that is done on the healing garden side the theory and the the evidence based research that that's delicious stuff. That's how I entered in to into this realm of what I believe elitist by my wife's calling is to bring that mental piece at the emotional aspect as well as a physical aspect. What's the healing that can occur? That's fantastic and delicious. That's what brought me to where I am now. which entered entered into by live on non like many people that are in kind of a fifty some now crisis but Weiss's like wine? My dear sister assist was going on. What is Is the sole level. Right is this. Let's start really talking more about the mysterious various the intuitive be instinctual pieces that we know to be true. And how how can I anti redbird. How can I help translate that? How can I help translate that so I've started to In my own life this last year and a half due to personal circumstances than happy to share about that lead to this none like many others family related is that in order for this landscape than I'm interacting with to really be my comrade to be my closest friend which is truly high what I believe in order that to be the case. Ace it needs to be purposeful meaningful and intentional. I need to take some responsibility around that. I need to have some responsibility around around that rather than resistance or did dismissive nece or disregard. And that's that's some tough push points but but I do think that well just very very frank with you is that I think there has become a trend in the garden industry. And I'm I'm saying used to be a trend. Let's call it passe. Hopefully where This instant `grats in disposability has hit our industry and it's it's incredibly disfiguring for us as as a community as a as a people's on this planet to think I think that we can create landscapes sort of these INSTA- landscapes in that that will be will be satisfying. And it's not. It's absolutely not and to return to the mysterious to return to the intuitive. The instinctual magic. The aw the things. They're not spoken about in science. That's that's where my mission is to take us is to be a part of that stewardship to say thank there's you know in immutable laws of manifestation abundance. There is the law of gender.

And then I took everything in me to resist googling to see if there was actual a tie between the tidal title pigs in a blanket and this chapter really like I thought maybe the International House of pancakes red x ten and then named it back. Wow Oh oh wait. Wait wait so so you thought that it was possible that the idea because of the head coach for a viable. Wow you're so. Yeah Bible rival literary you're like the beautiful mind person maybe where you're just like though subject to further discussion. Well today. We're talking about about pigs in a blanket or a blanket full of Bacon. We're an act SHEPPERTON. Let's just do a quick recap so far jen. How did we tax ten? I mean wh where have we been at before we got here. Well Kyle. It's been a long haul. No actually it's been really good we've gone through So the first half of is focusing mainly on the the emergence of the Ministry of Peter Within the narrative and So the first half of the book wraps up at the around the end of chapter twelve. And so. When you're in chapter ten you would know? Then we're really getting disordered. The the main point of what's happening in Peter's Ministry and interestingly right before you get to chapter ten ten you see the conversion of Saul so the Texas has spent a lot of time talking about Sol And we actually did on an earlier podcast and so you can kind of get get the sense that oh well I guess. Now we're gonNA talk about Saul Slash Paul and Saul Slash. Paul is commonly thought of as The one who takes the Gospel to the gentlemen tiles and said it's a little bit of a surprising. Turn when we flash back to Peter and find that actually. This is a story about Peter Taking the Gospel to the Gentile Anti. And he's GonNa he definitely gets kicked their right. It's not like he's not looking for the opportunity right. He wasn't. He wasn't out vision-casting for the Gospel. Going forward right Paul right with the Lord Kinda seized him into it right. Hold them into it. And that's the story Enact Shepperton focusing on Peter Cornelius and so I and also what's brought us to this point is like this expansion. This sort of ratcheting out of the Vision for who the Gospel is going to go to. And so I it comes to the Jew and then you start seeing you know like. Oh there's the Ethiopian Eunuch you know it's like each each vignette that's in here of WHO Receives The Gospel. Is this this this picture of the Gospel going as Jesus said in acts one eight from Jerusalem to Judea to Samaria and so this week is the ends of the earth and so and this is a fascinating story right right Oh man it's fantastic. I mean it's just it's really interesting just from like a history of redemption perspective. It's really interesting from a Kosh the spirit moving and Peter Peter and Cornelius perspective. It's interesting from what our visions and dreams perspective. It's interesting from a just like the pictures that are are interesting. They agers so it's just a fascinating story so we're not going to be able to read the whole story of petering to Cornelius. Because it's it's long it would take we're trusting when we cover these chapters. You're maybe reading along with us or you're familiar with the story. So the broad kind of contour here just to give us like a big arc of acts chapter. Tim Is that Pete. There's this guy named Cornelius Milius And Cornelius is a centurion of what was known as the Italian cohort and it says that he was a devout man who feared God with all his household he gave generously to the people and he prayed continually to God and that he is going to have a vision and that vision is going to be the Lord speaking to him And that around the same time Peter seems to be having having a vision and that is a vision that involves pigs in blankets. Hallelujah yes and so oh I think one of the questions that we immediately ask ourselves here is. What's the big deal between gentiles and Jews like? Why is this even talking point of significance at all like y casual reader of the Bible? And you get to this story. Why did Peter have to be kicked so to speak into bringing the good news to Cornelius? He is why wasn't that. Just a factor like hey I mean Jesus has come. This is good news. Why not bring it to everybody? Yeah I mean I think one of the main themes that we're going to see probably throughout this. This episode is the significance of promise that God made to Abraham in Genesis chapter. Twelve verse three Specifically that that That Abraham or Abram Room at the time was this man who was going to be elected for the purpose of his family than blessing the nations events he subsequently in Genesis. Fifteen and. Seventeen this this Promise promise of the good news. Of God's favor and blessing being given to Abraham and going through Abraham there is a sign given to this covenant specifically the sign of circumcision which is now the Jewish people. It's the Israelites and but over. The course of time I think they began to to forget that the purpose of their election of the Gospel the good news being given to them was actually not just for them but elections for the purpose of others of blessing the nations corporately and they begin developing a spiritual superiority based based upon this sign of circumcision. And it could not see how God would bless or or make somebody clean. who was in their mind unclean unless they they had been circumcised so really when you come to the New Testament one of the primary questions that is being asked like their their theological conversation is around this question? Do you have to be Jewish right in order to be a Christian. We're GONNA see this later in acts chapter fifteen at the Jerusalem Council. But that's really what's happening. Luke is doing. He's giving us a theological narrative errative to show us that the primary question that that that that God is trying to show his church is that by intentions. The whole time has been to bless everybody to bus the gentiles. Not just Jews but gentiles through the Jews yeah Because obviously the Messiah comes through Abraham's family right well and one of the reasons that we wouldn't read through this on the on the podcast Is because it repeats itself. So God's right and and and one of the things that we have to ask then is like the R- the repetition is like we get all the details over. I mean the the number of times that Simon the tanner who lives by the sea is mentioned. In these in these retailing's you're like stop and and it's repeated three times. The story is repeated three times. And they're actually a number of threes in the story Or multiples of three. That are are trying to tell us something They're we're going to be three men who accompany that. Go to get Peter. They're going to be six men that come with Peter Back to Cornelius House because they are bearing witness. It's the idea of on on the on the testimony. The money of two or three is the truth is something established. So that's all going on. The story is given to US three times. It itself is bearing witness and what we have to ask is why so much over and over again the same thing and it's because I think we we're looking back on something in and most of us are gentiles. We don't have a Jewish heritage and and we have to recall That this level of repetition and this much care taken around communicating this particular message about clean versus unclean about is is Christianity Eh Something that is placed within Judaism and grows out from it like. Do you have to observe Jewish custom that to the original audience. This is mind mind-blowing at the point that it is being given to them like it is like that cannot possibly be and yet it's in here three times because his. Jt said it it's the fulfillment is a fulfillment fulfillment passage for the promise. To Abraham that through him. All the families of the Earth would be blessed and I think it is easy for us to to to be dismissive of some of the tensions between the Jewish people. And somebody like Cornelius. Like it's not like the Israelite people were had no the reason to have a little bit of certainly hesitancy but if not if not just hesitancy but outright resistance to the idea idea of gentiles being heirs of the promises why because they had a history of being enslaved exiled and oppress by these groups of people right. That's right so like Cornelius when we kind of turn to the question of who is Cornelius with Cornelius. Is He's a leader. He's a soldier of an oppressing army occupying hang army exactly. So it's like the idea of Peter Going to Cornelius. And saying there's good news for you. Cornelius would be to bring the good news of Christ the Lord and this better kingdom to an oppressive enemy. That's exactly right and so it can feel a little bit like if you're reading this you're like well why the hesitation well not only were. There are strict tradit religious traditions that separated from cleanliness perspective Jews from gentiles engine towels from the inner presence of the Lord or the holiest places around the presence of Galway But there were also very big cultural and political realities that that kept division alive among Jews and gentiles so cornelius is a centurion It was What was known as the Italian cohort but he has described arrived as a devout man? Feared God with all his household gave generously to the people and pray continually to God. Now I wanted to pause here And just ask a little bit so coriolis just describe somebody who fears God and yet. He hasn't heard the good news of the Gospel. What's going on here right? Is this like the is this the sometimes. I read this passage. I feel like this is where people would go when they're like well you know there's somebody out there who maybe has never heard about the name of Jesus but it is like but does fear the Lord right so who. What does this mean? Why is this significant? I think this is a classic example of why we can't take the book of access prescriptive given everything that it's saying because what we're seeing as you're right at the hinge point right you're right at that place in between The way that we see faith demonstrated rated and credited his righteousness in the Old Testament and the way that we're going to see Belief in credit credited as faith and salvation in the New Testament I meant and Cornelius is right at the center of it. He's going to help us. Answer the question of how to salvation come by grace through faith alone has always been the answer but we would speak of like those is who are listed in Hebrews eleven as having looked forward to the promise of salvation and then New Testament believers is having looked back. He's right at Ground Zero and and so I think that what we see here. Well so just strictly in terms of what the text wants to communicate. He is a Jewish pro slight right so he is he. He is probably on the verge of conversion to Judaism so he's he's probably attending synagogue but he's not circumcised He someone who in the past would have been like if you think. Think about Rahab. She converts to Judaism or or or ruth is brought into the community. He's not yet in the community but it's interesting that he is already demonstrating. He has works to accompany his faith. So so I think what we're seeing here is a simple obedience to a forward-looking looking faith that is only forward looking in so far as no one has come to preach the Gospel to him yet. There there is a completeness to Gospel but he hasn't heard it yes. I actually don't think this is my hot. Take that when Peter Shares the Gospel with him. I'm not sure that that's the moment of salvation for him because we already see the Lord appearing to him and saying prayers MOMS have ascended as a memorial before God But I do think what we're seeing is. The connection of the idea of what is what has been salvation. An and now what is celebration. Yeah and we do see throughout acts. I don't know that we we've hit another one of these yet. But we do see these moments where there's essentially a group of Characters Jersey have a part of the story and that one of the apostles you gotta bring it to bring the other part of the story right so you see this with typically The receiving of the Holy Spirit or the baptism of the Holy Spirit. where it's like? You have a part of the story people like. Yeah I've been baptized by John. The baptist. Well there's there's more you know that like the the Christ price came that he died that he rose again and that he has sent the spirit right and so there are these kinds of points. I think it's important. You said that about Cornelius that there are so many scenes and acts where we need to fight. Maybe the the temptation to go okay. This is how salvation works As supposed to go okay. This is a very specific. Overlap moment in the history of redemption and this is one kind of cut away scene right of that very unique back once in a history redemption. Kind of moment. Yeah right that's right. Also just find a lot of comfort in the fact. That God was wasn't his providential ential over all of it in other words. This doesn't work if God isn't clearly. Directing writers clearly directing directing the men who were with them like God is moving moving all of these tectonic continental plates and there's there's just movement in redemptive history happening we get. We get this great confidence or assurance in this narrative narrative God ultimately is the one doing. Yes Yep that's good guy gets his people he doesn't have to be more anxious about God's mission than he is and Edberg. Yeah you're right Let's go. I needed to hear that today.
Inside Apple's big September event
"Guess apple had some sort of Shindig on Tuesday by innovation. Only there were a few people said okay. Hey if you're going to have an invitation that says by innovation you best innovate Devendra now first of all. You probably already ready have an iphone but you can't say it because I don't have it but I have touched them and they're very nice. Oh Oh you can say that a video phone yes the iphone eleven was a weird it was kind of a weird event for apple I had so much to talk about that they had had to jam it and they didn't start with their traditional owed to money-making and the stores they kicked they kicked right into Apple Arcade Plus TV plus and then they I went to the watch by the time they got the IPHONE. which I thought was going to be the story of the hour the only announced one the iphone eleven? I said the most successful iphone this year was was the iphone ten are here's its successor the iphone eleven now with two lenses and I thought well this is interesting the the big I think the big story there was the price which is fifty bucks less than the iphone ten are at six ninety nine and then they said Oh oh and by the way there are some other phones the iphone pro eleven pro and the iphone eleven flashbacks. I'm sorry PROMEX rollbacks. I say Flex 'cause I can't remember the all the all y'all have slow fee. There's a lump they all have slow fees SLO MO cell. Oh fees so these this is apples now in a tick talk talk situation. Aren't they six. They used to be every other year would be an asset and kind of the same form factor but a little bit improved and then a big improvement. The next year like the ten was a big improvement at the tennis was a talk and this is really a talk to the talk isn't it. I think it Kinda that speaks to like how a smartphone upgrade cycles are working now to like. Most people keep their two or three years. Here's it kind of makes sense. There's no point like killing yourself to bring something new and groundbreaking out every two years when you can kind of coast on how people actually buy if he's phones and take some more time with that hardware so yeah. I'm not surprised at this. Year's phones aren't too revolutionary. It is nice having an extra lens across the line. The three lenses the pros that's GonNa be really interesting. they really cleaned up the phone names to cause the ten are and the tennis. Those were all really dumb because there's a real L. numeral so it looks like it's just it was a mess so eleven nice and clean. I've eleven pro macbook MAC pro. It's all good and I think we're all expecting expecting the big big upgrade to be next year's when we're GONNA see five eight most likely the twenty twenty iphones but is there such a thing Georgia as a professional yeah you know professional for the phone that you have in your pocket better than but you know no understand automatic and a MAC pro I understand the macbook pro or even an IPAD and IPAD probe right yeah that's starting to stretch it on more for pros just easy and quick and it makes you feel a little bit more elite so exactly now but they need something short and snappy and easy and people understand that you're getting a little bit more for it. I think the thing for me makes it pro as someone who spends like literally all day on your phone because the light listening need to podcasts or making software making guys is like I just need more battery life and I think the fact that this year apple finally put more more battery in the back of these things for be like having that extra life is what makes it pro. It's more matters a lot yeah. If you make make a huge case so now let me ask because I wasn't clear. Is this five the iphone pro maxing has five hours more battery life than what the tennis Max like like their equipment so it is it is head to head. It is more but we don't lot five hours. Yeah we do know that the new display they're saying I think the new ole is fifteen percent more efficient and the new processor is likely more efficient so these this is where the battery life is coming from probably I've also been hearing from a lot of people have installed. IOS Thirteen eighteen the public Beta and thirteen one. That's much more efficient. They're better battery life so straight on all three fronts apple. The new processor is the a thirteen bionic. Is that right beliefs. Oh yeah sorry so I think that's the that's the other annoying thing by the way with the pro WPRO designation last year the ten are the tennis phones had the exact same processor yes and that was a big price difference now. It's like iphone eleven basic iphone pro still with the same processor yeah and that's I don't know I kind of wish there was a little more of a bump. They're just really earned that pro title straight now where you have the extra camera so you have the alleged really nice refreshments screens and the kind of slick not slick but like the Matt Glass back and the stainless steel construction. That's Cardinal. You're you're getting. That's surgical stainless. Surgically yes grave thought was really weird because like I'm not going to perform an open heart surgery with my phone. I could see that in a scalpel but a phone. I don't know yeah I think for me. The most frustrating thing about the whole eleven eleven eleven Brent Levin Peru Max is as you can see here. They ship the case your head of the actual I hate that you get a box from a I go oh my would. It's just the flipping case you really you you really all in an apple because you bet the apple clear case which is forty dollars and as far as I could tell this identical these seven ninety nine one. I bought surgical. Oh break clear you're paying for but you know it will fit just right so that's probably important okay so so the so the this is a seven nanometer processor. This is actually I think apple deserves more credit for its custom processors than they're getting This looked looked like and it was interesting because they brought somebody for the first time I can ever remember from the processor group up on stage. Oh yeah it was like an out for a second there. It was like Whoa half billion transistors or something. It's just it's mind boggling what they're doing. I think they're my guess is they're highlighting these guys because they're eventually going to be making processors processors for the entire kit right all the way all the way up to the computers I think if we're we're seeing snapdragon laptops already and windows machines running on Snapdragon so so they they are kind of setting the stage it just kind of make sense like oh but by next year if we see a Mac book powered by the a fourteen or whatever we wouldn't be too surprised. I guess I I do have to say that increase battery life and it's across the line although five hours is the longest promex if that's accurate and we won't know until I guess I'm going to guess that at places like in Gadget and I'm more have embargoed units that they'll report on it. I'm GonNa Guess Wednesday usually a few days before they ship they get the the reviews started coming out and all the main stream publications so we won't really know and then Friday I fix it will won't be in Australia and they will get at midnight. They will get their iphone. Take it apart immediately so we'll then know how much battery we'll know a little bit more about the processor the cameras and all that stuff but I you know I think if they really get literally get five hours more. That's huge. That's thirty forty percent. That's a big difference Prince. It's a big deal like I don't know if it's enough to upgrade from tennis models if you have one of those battery life on an iphone interest. That's what you do with your phone right. It's nice not to have to find a place to charge your phone so if you're using it all the time this may be worth it. I think it's extremely carry one of those lovely. You know hunchback kind of battery cases on the back so that's curry the ugly I carry I currently they have the the the tennis Max with the battery case a while and it is like carrying a brick eight a battery so one one of the the these little on Friday Friday coincidentally happens to be my birthday's could be like nice birthday on the planet because going and picking those guys up and then getting the pipe while I was getting the pipes and out of the pocket and be Very Brett Cavenaugh story from college you don't you don't WanNa share that one too soon way you too soon so that's an example of that because johnny is left but the Johnny Ivy era. It's always he's been center center center. Center Center apple didn't say thinner once they said better battery life Hallelujah heavier they are data you know after the Ben Gate I think they went. You know what thinner is probably not better. I think that he believes enough panic stricken. Let's make sure it's actually better uh-huh enough. Every Olympics are getting added weight because of this the surgical grade steel and believe new display like I so from just suspects alone the T. V. Ten Perot Max or the eleven pro Max ways half a pound. This is the heaviest iphone we've already made yeah I feel I feel like they were waiting between that and the the new keyboards on the new macbook prayers I feel like they would just literally like waiting. Thank God Butterfly Keyboard the keyboard at an extra little bit way on that like thank God Janis no hair to to say I can't be the case but still does feel like that doesn't Camp I mean he just left a jeff before he latte has been on the works. it wasn't a quick fix unless there was a skunkworks in the back of the campus when when Johnny beliefs were gonNA show this keyboard yeah the reports were they. He basically checked out for the past couple of years yeah so who knows like how now yeah yeah. I hope you're right. We'll Harris. I do hope there is a new and by the way I think it's pretty clear because apple only announced the low end ipad the three twenty nine version and with the giant they look out they giant vessels the home button a fingerprint reader they only announced that which means we know thanks to the the European database that there are at least two more models coming. I think that I saw that so. There's gotTA B. and they're gonNa we know there's a MAC pro coming this year if you can afford it and we know that so we see I think there's going to be October event with all of these things right that makes sense yeah yeah so yeah I would say it disappointed like on the back to sort of entry level ipad things

Study: Psychiatric Diagnoses Are 'Scientifically Meaningless' In Treating Mental Health
"Okay so this time I caught my eyes where psychiatric diagnoses are called a scientifically meaningless this is not something you usually see in headlines and the timing couldn't be any more worse cross my legs there could be any worse because we're trying to grapple with how we deal with our mental health and how to find the next shooter or the next you know Boston Marathon bomber you know or the next terrorist and you know we're we're trying to you know get a grip on how to diagnose and how to identify if we have a disgruntled employee and then we come in we find out that one of psychiatric diagnoses you might not have enough scientific merit and this study that was published in psychiatry research and it concluded that psychiatric diagnoses are scientifically quote worthless as tools to identify discrete mental health disorders this comes from the university of Liverpool so basically what they did a lot of the DSM an art diagnostic manual are are DSM four is kind of our Bible when it comes to psychiatric disorders that there really is our Bible when it comes to that and they look at that and they found that psychiatric diagnoses all use a different decision making roles that there was a huge amount of overlap in symptoms and that almost all diagnoses mask the role of trauma an adverse events and they say diagnoses tell us a little about the individual patient and what treatment they need now some of you may be like Hallelujah praise the lord it's about time somebody calls it like it is and I I know there's a lot of you out there many of you have emailed saying I got a diagnosis of depression or anxiety and I don't have that in so it is very subjective he I'm training that I got as a family medicine doctor we got a lot I it's not enough not enough for me to be confident doing psychiatry in my practice so I generally just like I treat I would diagnose mild anxiety mild depression I would diagnose I came up with this idea of you having low serotonin and that being a condition and maybe your low serotonin is making you here in a ball and causing insomnia and making you grumpy and giving you a bad day in giving you Val problems are causing your blood pressure to spike and so I would try some of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor medications and a lot of times we found great success but I was really reluctant to give you a diagnosis of major depressive disorder or anxiety disorder or adjustment disorder or you know another sort of of mental health diagnosis and it is subjective and unfortunately insurance companies have forced us doctors to give you a diagnosis because if I see you as a patient and you let's say we've talked about this on air a lot let's say you want to fall asleep on a plane and if you want some Xanax because it helps you fall asleep on a plane and then you can wake up and get out well when I was using an ex for insomnia and you don't really have insomnia you just want to fall asleep on a long flight so I don't wanna why so I have to choose okay well are you using a just a fall asleep insurance once a cult to pay for that visit and for us to write a medication like that I got to give them a call so then well do you have a little anxiety are you able to falsely but yeah I guess I don't see Paul on the plane may because of that so you get the diagnosis of anxiety but you really don't have anxiety that's not your diagnosis and so were forced to come up with diagnoses all the time maybe that's a pro with medicine maybe it's all about diagnoses well you have high blood pressure you have diabetes you have this person who's at risk for heart disease I don't know what it is eat like crap you're overweight you smoke you got a lot of family history of stuff why do I have to give you seven to ten different diagnoses we got the ICD ten code with millions of codes and you know these cold snow falling for life because we have electronic medical records so now we have you know more more patients one alive they don't want their diagnosis of anxiety to follow them because they may want to own a gun later and just because they wanted Sam axe to fall asleep on a flight they don't want that to prevent them from being able to exercise their second and the rights and so we're we're kind of in this Max and so psychiatry is there are certain diseases that afflicts people that are very very obvious that are very unpredictable we could very consistently diagnose such as like schizophrenia or major depressive disorder or an addictive personality or you know narcissism histrionic antisocial attention deficit but you know I come to learn that attention deficit is more of a symptom rather than a diagnosis you know people say yeah my kid as ADHD and so my second question is why why well does he have autism does he have as workers does he have hypoglycemia does he have a thyroid disorder these attention deficit could be a symptom of something else and so sometimes we get to the diagnosis of wood but we stop it there because well we got a right there by the hands of the concern of the medication well why isn't anybody asking why so what's good about this study is it makes this kind of re look at how we approach psychiatry and how we approach a patient that may have a mental health issue but do we really need to stigmatize do we really need to diagnose everybody you know if somebody can't sleep or somebody doesn't like the mother in law or somebody has a fight with their spouse or somebody doesn't want to be in Los for Christmas or if somebody you know is sick and tired of smelling dog crap in the house you know and they you know don't know how to deal does that really mean they have a mental condition you know so these are things that I think we do have to talk about I do not want anybody taking this headline to think that whatever they were diagnosed with this poppycock that's not the case okay you know if you were diagnosed with a mental health condition there's a very good chance you'll have that right there's a lot of overlap and when I hear people use the term bi polar all their bi polar all right where they diagnosed with bi polar I mean you didn't really have bipolar do they really have the press to do they really have anxiety I think we might need to re look at when we actually label and
Hallelujah! Google Assistant finally has access to your G Suite calendar
"And now we can talk about Jay sweep. Jeez. Weight on my. Okay. Oh, gee sweet. Yes. And we will let's see here. Let's scroll down because I think they ended up in the change on the change. Log is like huge. So any stuff? No. No, no. It's okay. Because there was a bunch of G sweep, and this is the stuff that I could connect to them more in my mind. I could I could attach myself to Jesus we'd a little bit more. But yes, so G, suite Google home, right? Because now, there's more assistant. I haven't tried this yet because I'm constantly sad by my Michael home experience. But. Yes. Theoretically because I worked on a system. Oh, yeah. We should do a whole show up that okay? We can talk about that. In a second. Yes, they're radically. I can now access my GPS week calendar. Data on my Google assistant and presumably, Michael. Oh, so is this when I read this.

"Of course, the case did win three World Series in that span. So it's not a direct correlation there. But there's no question that power really hard to come by over there by the bed. You mentioned the H Domino's and teams and players who might be affected by that. I think the player I was most excited to write about today was Joey Votto like I was concerned about the back end of his career. What's that gonna look like, Sarah? I'm fired up. I hope that they do have the where he could play out the last year of his career. Maybe even go into his early forties is ineffective hitter. Because he's so disciplined he knows. Eating so well, and they'll give an opportunity put up some great numbers. What do you think? Yeah. I think that makes a lot of sense. I think when you think of the players association perspective, and you know, trying to get more jobs and maintain jobs. That's a really good argument in favor of it to really help extend guys careers, another examples not nearly on the same level offensively as Joey Votto at this point. But Robinson canot who you also mentioned and when the Mets acquired him it was kind of like what what's he gonna do in the final two years of that deal because he's probably he's already not in the position to necessarily be the best fielder. And I think some of those guys who's careers could be extended or almost more exciting to think about than just the Kyle Schwartz who have always kind of been in that situation where they could rather be age. So yeah. All right. We'll sarah. Thank you for doing this. And I'm so fired up that we'll get to continue to have you moving forty even after you've moved on to other places.

"We got about ninety seconds left. Tell me about the most difficult choice. You had in terms of the top one hundred rankings. Well, highly when everyone's talking about which is I had for Nando Tateishi junior rank first over Vlad Guerrero leads more famous lead, his the better hitting prospect pure offense, Vlad is one of the best prospects I've ever seen and the argument that I've made and the reason I ranked to tease I and I ran this by front office executives to some many greed with me and something which is a shortstop and potentially very shortstop in base run. Our a guy who's likely stay in the middle of the field and have defensive aga- for a long time. His body. I think should age very well to he reminds people of young Manny Machado, one guy city reminded him of young Alex Rodriguez. That's pretty high praise. I love I love watching the guy play. But he's not a third baseman. It's a big body. You see photos of now nineteen and twenty he's already two hundred fifty pounds and heavy not the kind of body project to age, particularly while like I said earlier in the in our discussion that's pretty good chances D H for a lot of his career. He could still be a great player the Edgar Martinez or. David Ortiz guy on guy shore, one hall of Famer one who's going to go to the hall of fame. But I see more upside for a guy like to the difference between an average shortstop and everage D H. Just by positional adjustment alone. Is about two wins a year before we consider defense base running and durability. I love LEGO junior ranked him second. So it's not insult. But to tease to me offers something more, and that I think not that it was difficult for me. But it's been hardest thing for me to explain to fans who know Vlad junior and ask why he's not number one. Yet reminds me of those conversations we used to have the MVP race and Miguel Cabrera versus might trout, essentially, you have a great hitter who everyone loves to watch versus someone who's a more well rounded player and impacts the game a lot of different ways. Yes. That's actually a perfect analogy where the things that trout did well or not is immediately evident and don't necessarily get you the highlights or the headlines that a lot of not even wrong. With what Miguel Cabrera did? He was a great player. But trout like you said, it was more well rounded able to provide value in war ways, which is not as immediately evident. And that's that's part of the challenge. I think it's part of our job to when we when we stayed an opinion that that might seem to counter conventional wisdom it's about using that as as an opportunity explain with here's my philosophy. Here's the reasoning behind that. And. Almost to educate a little bit. I'm not saying, I'm right? But here's the logic that used behind this ranking? Thanks for doing this. We'll talk soon. Yup. My pleasure numbers game zero legs is a researcher, but not for ESPN because she no longer work city is since the last time we had on the podcast. We have news, Sarah. You have left us.

"So if the D H is our values going to be enhanced by this potential, you know, slugger type corner outfield types, they're going to be helped by this. The super utility guys might suffer a little bit. What do you think? All right. So I got a list of my head here. So i'll. The Mets yest- everything you said also just for if they were doing it say just for this year, which may not happen for this year. But Peter Alonso's one of their top prospects on my top one hundred. He was fairly low on the list because he's a bad first baseman. He is he's a big guy. A well below average defensive first base scoops. Okay. But he has very limited range not terribly athletic for baseball player. He's values in his back. If the Mets Detroit now that because they have him Dom Smith is still there just picked up JD Davis and some point Robinson. It was probably at least get some things off that whole infield rotation looks very different if they have the spot where they can play along so there, and they can move some other guys through it. The cardinals grant, Paul Goldschmidt, only there for one year that carpenter could just the H doesn't really have a position certainly not with Goldschmidt, a very good defensive for spaceman now on the roster to the super utility players point. I think it chain. What teams would look for in those guys teams love positional versatility. Almost to the point where I'm wondering if we're overvaluing versatility for its own sake. I hear it a ton as I was researching the prospect stop, well, we're gonna have in play a couple of different positions because we want to have that for civility..

"I think sort of defined defined what was it steak, and so they they came up with a real change in the same way. I felt like last summer one Tanaka strained both hamstrings on this while he was running vases, it really among executives like, okay? This is really stupid. We know stupid. And we know we don't like putting these guys at risk. But here you have Masahiro Tanaka h tremendous athlete who is very diligent fully prepared an excellent shape, and because this is an ally or play for him. He wasn't prepared in in the column. I wrote this morning I mentioned it's like asking like a chemist to become a logger for a day and sending him into the woods that from baseball. Perspective you wanna protect your assets. So it's going to happen. And some of the Domino's I was thinking about this morning in a column I wrote about how this could affect National League teams. I'm going to run through them. You can pick out one or two that you like or disagree with I for the Mets the deal for Robinson canot looks very different potentially. Joel sherman. I so it was the first that I mentioned this. Then all of a sudden, the addition of dates thirty six maybe it doesn't seem quite as crazy as I thought it was last fall because they could know that maybe by two thousand twenty two thousand twenty one can Okan have a lot of time D H, the reds long term contract with Joey Votto. Suddenly looks very different guy. Who's going to go into his late thirties age forty season? He's got five years left on his contract. You know, and I know that he'll continue to be a disciplined hitter. And now that he'll be able to have access to data if they agreed to this. His time with the reds might finish differently. Than would have otherwise Carl Warburg cub for life. Right. The last few years we've been talking about you the cubs. And what do you do Schwarzer is he defensively viable in left field? Should they move around? Should they trade him all of a sudden this hitter who the cubs front office absolutely loves and believes in he might have a future with the cubs? And I feel like that the value of great super utility players. Conversely starts to go down where a guy like Ben's overs has incredible value to a nationally team. But if in fact, they go to a DA ch- in if in fact, they go to this role where pitchers to face a minimum of three batters. All of a sudden, you're gonna have a situation where you know teams are going to carry thirteen fourteen position players. They're going to have a D H. It's going to be perhaps of more value to carry a really good hitter on your bench, like Jose Martinez in the cardinals versus carrying a guy who can be worked into double. Switch. Like, an Enrica Hernandez..

"And also make a lot of money along the way and all these other teams are doing it. And now we have this very polarized majorly product, which is not good for the sport. So I'm glad they're talking about that. What about you? Yes. No. I agree. I think that coming up with measures. You simply do not want to reward non-competitive behaviour. I've said before I don't think teams in major league baseball really tank. The way the NBA teams tank because obviously you got a higher pick in the NBA draft that can be a substantial difference for the future of your franchise. Might get a franchise altering player and a single player can really change the fortunes of franchise. We're in baseball means Mike trout for quite a while. Now, you might be the best player we've ever seen. He alone is not for pulling them to the playoffs. That can. So that's major difference between baseball and other sports yet at the same time. We are seeing team say, well, there's no point to spending money now 'cause we stink which is really true. And also if we lose a bunch of games, we get more money to spend in the draft. And at one point you were getting a lot more money to spend on the international market too. So we can lose a lot of games, and that's up to go acquire a lot more mature talent. And even though we may not get the one LeBron James type of player to change our franchise. We'll just get a whole bunch of extra talent in the system. And that's the thing. I think baseball needs to find ways to address, and I will say you probably heard this too. I talked to a couple of agents recently owner, just venting. But it's amazing to me. Now how many agents are coming out with proposals to? Fix the to alter the draft to get rid of these essentially disincentive for non playoff teams to try to win more games. Yeah. I remember. I Scott Boris talked to me about one back in two thousand sixteen before the current yuppie was signed and you're right. And in some respects, I think that it would be important for the union. Here's another thing too about that. And you're right. A lot of agents are coming out individually and speaking about this kind of like last spring when Brodie van wagon came out with a statement about the state of the relations between the two sides union needs speaking with one voice like I can't imagine one agent said to me with the left. Can you imagine or data Gene Orza the former number two executive in the player sociation reacting to agents coming out with public proposals? Oh my God. I mean, he would hammer down on the agents who were doing that. So I think on the union side, they probably need more discipline. What do you think? Well, are we just say at this way, it the agents agents have always been extra powerful in baseball more than they are in as far as I can tell any other sport if the agents, it's the union here's agents publicly or privately Sharon proposals. Let's say for changing the top of the draft lottery system for the weighted lottery system for the top ten picks for all non playoff teams. I've talked to Scott to he's proposed sensually making the top ten players in any draft class into sort of modified free agents. And then after that you return to a regular draft structure. There's a lot of ways to do this. If agents have these ideas from the union, saying great, let's get everyone in a room on a call up. Whatever let's hear these ideas and decide which one of these is our proposal as a group we settle yet. We're gonna compromise internally. But we have to all decide this is the system we're going to fight to implement in the next CBS one. Opposable one voice against the owners. You're much more likely to get a solution that you like if you go in with that single purpose. All right. Let's look at some of the specific proposals. And some of the Domino's that are gonna fall away from it. Located. We talked about last summer the inevitable. I really feel like that. We're going to look back on that Masahiro Tanaka play in which you know, for a double hamstring poll much in the same way. We look back at the BUSTER Posey collision where people in sport were talking about legislating collision rules, but the Posey injury..

"And you know, he could use a couple more weeks in the minor leagues. And he gets called up in mid April. L and quite frankly under the current rules. I don't blame the Blue Jays for handling it that way because if they don't they're competitive disadvantage, you know, the other day I compared this situation a little bit to the PD's in the nineties if you were clean player either you use to try to keep up competitively or you didn't use fell behind under the current rules knowing how service time is manipulated by just about every team in baseball. You can understand why these teams feel compelled to to do these things and it's not good for anybody though. It's not good for anybody, including the players it particular and this comes up because when I argued last summer that the Blue Jays will wrong to not bring lead caro- up had a lot of Blue Jays fans, essentially say, well, they're doing the rational thing they're getting another year of control before free agency. I all if you're actually rooting for years of control and not rooting for your team to win more games. We have a different philosophical outlook on what it means to be baseball fan not saying they're wrong. I fan personally. I think that incorporates all sorts of assumptions, not the least of which is that the wolves on source time in free agency aren't gonna change in the future, which I think it's pretty clear they're gonna change in the next CBA. But the point making it again now, and this applies to a lot of guys my prospect rankings from this week when you why girl was ready for the majors last may when he was still in doubly and they went to triple eight he destroyed AAA pitching again. And they're gonna make a lot of noise about eats to work on his defensive, blah, blah. He's not gonna work on his defense. Because one don't think you're really wants to to. He's not very good. He's probably Deitch. He certainly not a third baseman. But he was ready to hit major league pitching less summer. And by not calling him up. The Blue Jays essentially cost him. Let's say two hundred or so at bats of experience facing majorly pitching. And then he'd likely be a better player. Now, if he had that experience already so all they do when teams refused to call it players who are clearly ready supplies. The White Sox Neela. Jimenez to just slowing down their development. Yeah. They'll still develop those still be fine in the long run. But it's going to happen later. And that doesn't help the player anything. It's not good for your fans. Either. And I'm thrilled that they are at least discussing any taking measures. I was surprised at the union in prioritizes. And the last CVA talks an agent called me after I wrote something along those lines and said, yeah, I get it that the union should have brought it up. A why wouldn't major league baseball? Also want to address it. It's not good them. Either to have these teams, you know. And let's face it. The industry is following the example, the cubs and the Astros who came up with a great way to maximize position the draft..
