How Brazil Got California'd
"Is making some international headlines. For now, unfortunately, displacing the great leader hare Bolsonaro, so look, in Brazil, they have an interesting system. They have a straight popular vote system. And if Brazil had an Electoral College Bolsonaro would have won. So I know very little about Brazil politics. I know probably more than an average American, but I'm far from an expert on it. But there's different regions in Bolsonaro one, every single region, except what is in Portuguese called the nordeste region, of which I don't know where that is. I'm guessing that is the most populated area of the country. And so or yeah, if it's northeast, and I don't know what, I guess that would be, I don't know what, I guess that's the population center. I can't imagine Rio de Janeiro's in the northeastern part of the country as per they describe it. Okay, it's not, but he won it in a big way, I guess. So if you look at the percentages, though, if you win 70, 30 in that one portion of the country, then you are able to basically run the table. It's basically like just winning California 75, 25, and then you become president. You

"And rather than go into this election completely not knowing where anyone's coming from, who's running for judge in the superior court, at least you know where Patrick's coming from. I treasure where you're coming from Patrick. I really hope that you succeed. And for those of you who live outside of LA outside of California, I think Patrick was giving you some real good direction about how you can school yourself a little bit before you cast your vote. So any last words that you would like to give to our listeners, especially those who have the potential to vote for you. I believe with all of my being that justice matters. And when I say justice matters, I don't mean the tired policies that have led to the incarceration of so many people primarily the poor and people of color without any significant reduction in crime. When I say justice and what I hope for our community, no matter who is elected on the bench, no matter who are prosecutors are, is a sort of justice that restores our community to wholeness. For victims of crime, absolutely. But also for those accused of crimes, focusing as much as possible on treatment over incarceration, which I believe will lead to the sort of stability that will truly lead to community safety. Well, said, that's that restorative justice you were shaped by in your time at fuller seminary. And as a fellow progressive Christian, that just really makes my heart sing. I think that's the as on earth as in heaven, vision, that Jesus cast for us in the Bible. There's just so many times when the current systems in place, they don't see we're getting anywhere close to that. So thank you so much for giving us your time. Again, thank you for your candidacy. I wish you all the best. I want to talk to you when you're a judge. But I'll talk to you if you're not. And maybe we can do some singing together too. That would be fun. That'll be wonderful. And thank you.

"I think in the superior court system, I see judges that will keep 9 people locked up pending their trial because of the fear that the tenth one may commit another crime. So you don't want judges that are ruling based out of fear for fear of losing their job. At the same time, I believe does need to be some sort of accountability. Now I do believe we have impeachment processes that are theoretically possible, but virtually never. Virtually never happens. So it's a fine line between the accountability that I think all of would like to see versus the judges that might be ruling and putting their finger out to test the prevailing political winds before they make a decision. So it's horns of a dilemma that we're on with respect to how long these federal and Supreme Court terms should be. And I think a current example may be almost the opposite of what you just described Patrick is justice clarence Thomas with his wife Ginny and all of your emails and text messages. Okay, wouldn't the honorable thing to do is to recuse yourselves. So there's no possible appearance of conflict of interest when these cases are, but it's like, well, thanks for sharing. But I'm not going to recuse myself. And it's like, okay, then there's no recourse. Those kind of things, a little frustrating. I was just thinking, as we get into the end of our time here, that among judges, especially when it comes to the constitution, there's these originalists. And then there's those who see it as kind of a living document. And I think there's parallels with how different groups of Christians view the Bible. Absolutely. And they're like, no, no, I don't interpret the Bible. I don't interpret the constitution. It's what the original authors said, intended, which gets a little subjective. What more do you think about that, especially not necessarily the Bible, but taking this kind of originalist point of view because even right now, with the roe V wade case back, what's leaked out is justice Elio was basically saying, well, it was never in the Fourteenth Amendment. It was never implied. That someone can have a right to their own pregnancy in their own body. Following that line of thinking, there are things about the Civil Rights Act. And same sex marriage and all these other things that the original writers of the constitution clearly didn't have in mind. Even the abolishment of slavery and the human value of a person from Africa that they had been brought here in chains. So what's your understanding of these two views of the fundamentals? Well, you know, we have to interpret documents, whether it's the scriptures or the constitution. It must be interpreted. There's no way around it. So we have a right to bear arms, but does that mean that everyone is entitled to have hand grenades and rocket launchers? Exactly. So that absolutely must be interpreted. So I think kind of the crux of it comes down to whether we believe that we are bound by what the writers of that text be it constitution or scripture meant at the time or do we take a look at given the great values of the constitution of equal justice and equal protection and personal freedom, is that the greater context in which we should interpret the words of the constitution or do we take a more wooden literal approach? I mean, I experienced that in my own struggling with the scriptures that I grew up with, but I had an experience where I looked at, well, how did these scriptures function within the pages of scriptures themselves? Because there's people at almost worship, the text, not realizing, well, at the end of the day, I think, as people of faith, we're trying to figure out what does God want here and now. And there was famously a Jerusalem council where the literalists came and said, you know, the Bible, the scriptures are clear that these gentiles, if they want to be part of the community of faith, must be circumcised, and then the more progressive said, well, we think that we sense the spirit of God is moving somewhere else and we can step away from this literal reading that everyone took. So I think, you know, there's some parallels there. A great example. Yeah. Yeah, I would say that I was born and raised a baptist. So not wesleyan, which is more methodist and I guess Anglican. But one of the things when I was teaching at a wesleyan school as an adjunct, I had to learn the wesleyan quadrilateral, and I was thinking in its odd sort of way. It kind of applies to how you're describing the constitution. This approach to the constitution, because the west thing quadrilateral with John and Charles Wesley, they would basically say, okay, in the quadrilateral, there's four quadrants, and one of them is clearly a scripture, and that's a big quadrant. That's our holy writ. But there's three other quadrants. And we weigh off four, right? So as we look at scripture, we weigh tradition, we weigh experience, and we weigh reason. And when I learned that, I gosh, you know, I could be a wesleyan. But I was thinking, I think everybody actually uses all four quadrants, but certain people only admit to using one. Which is the Bible. And the example that you used in the book of acts, the more progressive Jewish Christians at the time were saying, well, what do you see? They're speaking in tongues, that's what we were speaking at Pentecost. When we were all Jews, right? And so there's been multiple occasions of this, so maybe there's a spiritual circumcision, a circumcision of the heart that even though you have Bible verses and tradition on your side that male has to be physically circumcised in order to become a believer in the messiah, we think new developments begged that question, right? And I feel like that's kind of descriptive of what you're saying about the constitution, our constitution is like, yeah, okay, that's one quadrant. That's kind of our sacred document as a country. But back when it was written, most of those people who wrote it were owning slaves. And they wiped out indigenous people and they didn't see women as being valued enough to vote, let alone non landowning males. So we've learned a thing or two since then, and so shame on us and it's certainly it flies in the face of those original principles that we're talking about. Liberty and justice for all and freedom. So it's like, yeah, that's not, that's not changing things. That's actually trying to be our word progressive if saying, well, this is what we've learned since. And we think it's still rooted in this document. But it wasn't fairly applied. What did you think about that? Amen. Yeah. All right, we crossed the streams. So tell our listeners, especially those in LA county, when will they be given opportunity to vote for you? And when are those ballots coming out, the sample ballots, where your name is going to appear, all of that so that they can start paying attention. The sample ballots, a lot of morale, we haven't received ours, but people have been texting me a photograph of the race for office number one 51 on their ballots. And there's a one month of mail in balloting, so we're right on the brink of the process starting. And of course, there's a lot of locations that used to be only had to go on election day, but there's a lot of locations where you can go ahead of time, I think that was one of the blessings of COVID. But so between when the mail in ballots arrive and when the polling stations open up and January 7th, that is the window of time where people can vote here in Los Angeles for mayor and sheriff and city attorney and judge, so we're coming up right up on it here. Did you say January, June 7th? Yeah, I was like, wait a minute. That's like, no, no, it's much sooner than we think. Take two. Again, listeners, if you're an LA county, I brought Patrick here, not just because he's a friend and not just because I think he's very well qualified. I'm going to go one step farther than the LA bar association. To be a superior court judge, I just want you to know that there are people like Patrick, who are putting in the time of the effort investing their own money with the backing of a lot of people who've come to know you and respect you. And love where you come from and believe like I do that we need people like you on the bench. So I hope you're paying attention, Ellie voters. Because I don't think it takes that many votes to turn the tide on some of these judicial elections..

"So it remains to be seen, how that goes over with the voters, but we'll find out after the primary election on June 7th. One of the little sayings that I used to teach my fuller students was you can't be safe and brave. You have to pick one. And it seems clearly that you've picked being brave. One of the things that just frustrated the heck out of me when I was reading the transcripts of the hearings at the judiciary committee for judge ketone Brown Jackson. I mean, she's being questioned by people with a law school and she was being criticized for basically defending people at Guantanamo. And it's like, this is basic to our constitution that everyone is guaranteed, some kind of legal representation in the law. And so I was like, man, it's been so politicized because when you step back, it's like he wasn't doing anything wrong. In fact, she was doing what she swore to do. I think it was John Adams that famously said he would rather that ten guilty people go free than one innocent person be convicted. I'll just tell you, and I'm sure this is the experience of so many of my listeners. When the ballot comes, our ballet comes, and we get to the section about judges, there's a part of me that kind of groans inside because I don't know who these people are. I can count on probably one finger. People I know who do a super deep dive before the election. And they look up their rating by the American bar association. All this kind of stuff, but that's by far the minority. And one of the reasons why that I'm having you here and breaking my own rules about who will have my guess on this Asian American podcast, Patrick, is I feel like we need people like you on the bench in the superior court here in LA county, especially and so listeners as you hang in there and you get to know Patrick a lot better about what makes him tick and what has formed him that if he is elected to the superior court bench that he'll bring all of that with him, I feel like it's really an advantage to someone to at least get a little bit of exposure prior to when people go to their ballot box because I know people who just say, well, I just never vote for the judges, right? Which I understand, but that's not how the process works. Well, on the other hand, we don't even see party designation. And so it says like, yeah, are you just looking at those descriptive titles? And are you more going to go for someone who was in the DA's office or now currently in the public defenders? So what would you recommend for people not just here in LA county who have the potential to vote for you, but all across these 50 states, they're going to have people running for various judge positions too, they're not going to do that deep dive either. What do you recommend for the laypeople? How they can approach making wise choices. Well, we are last here in Los Angeles County, and I would assume there's similar agencies throughout the country by an organization that's called the Los Angeles County bar association, and when you announce your candidacy, they reach out to you and invite you to submit an application to them, and I will tell you it is very extensive. They want every job you've ever had. They want everywhere you've ever gone to school. They want to know the names of 75 people that you know professionally, so I listed 25 judges, 25 attorneys that I've been opposing counsel, whether that was district attorneys or city attorneys or county council. And then they ask you a lot of questions and then they call all those people and I have reason to believe they called every single one of them and they don't stop at that 75. I would get people coming up to me that we're not on my list saying that they had got a call from the LA county bar. And a group of volunteers and I'm very grateful for the time that they put in because they care deeply about the quality of the bench. So after they've read your interview and conducted all these interviews with the people on your list and people not on your list, they set up an appointment with you and they are very thorough and if there's any information that they have received that gives them any question you were cross examined in for an hour about this process and they're interested both in the answers to their questions, but they're also interested in how you respond because as judges you are going to have adversarial parties in front of you, attorneys, clients, petitioners, respondents, and so they look not only at your legal experience and your reputation in the community, but your temperament as well. And I can attest that it's a very, very thorough process. They have 5 different ratings from not qualified to qualified for, actually, to well qualified to very well qualified. Historically, very well qualified his only been applied to judges that are already on the bench and are being challenged by an opponent. Historically, the best that any candidate gets is somewhere between not qualified qualified or well qualified. And if you get a rating of not qualified or qualified by the subcommittee that interviews you, you have the opportunity to appeal that and go to the larger committee and make your case as to why that rating was inappropriate. So I believe the LA county Bard is an exceptional job vetting those candidates. So you should be able to go online and to your local county bar association and find out the ratings that they have given those judges. Also, newspapers will often make endorsements, so I had an interview several weeks ago with the Los Angeles Times, my understanding is that they're endorsements are going to be coming out tomorrow. Oh boy. And other newspapers in the area. There's also political clubs that candidates go to speak to. Now, of course, political clubs will be bringing their own political biases, needless to say. So I'm working with a political consultant and she has 7 clients. One is a sitting judge. One is the sitting LA county superior court judge. One is an administrative judge. One is a private attorney that was formally a district attorney. Three of them are district attorneys and I'm kind of the odd man out as the only public defender among her clients. But we will all go to the same political club meetings in LA county, a very blue county that generally means we're going to the democratic clubs. And with the current view of the Democratic Party on criminal justice reform, the district attorneys are feeling kind of left out because most of the endorsements are going to defense attorneys that have been spending their entire career fighting for alternatives to incarceration. Now, if we were to go to Republican parties, it would probably be the other way. Yeah, we public defenders wouldn't get any endorsement. So I say that to say these clubs will often post on their website, they're endorsements or they will send out mailers with their endorsements, but the caveat should be whether that's Republican or Democrat. Okay, this is coming from a party with a particular point of view. So if you really want a neutral point of view, I would point you towards your county's bar association and their ratings of the candidates. Okay, so now you are definitely begging the question, how did the LA bar association rate you? I was pleased after what I thought was a grueling one hour cross examination that they rated me well qualified and the only candidate well qualified in the race that I am in. Congratulations on that. Thank you. Yeah. So you kind of touched on this, Patrick. So I want to get into a little bit more. I grew up looking at the three branches of government and always seeing the judicial branch as nonpartisan apolitical yada yada. And I pretty much maybe naively held that belief maybe until the last 5 or 6 years. Now I'm definitely a different mind. And I think a lot of folks are too. And so even this leaked opinion coming out of the Supreme Court right now about the probability, although it's not a vote yet, that the Supreme Court is going to knock down roe V wade, right? I feel like as some of us have been paying attention the last bunch of years, the conservatives, not just the last 5 or 6 years for decades, have been really seeing stacking the judiciary with people who think like them, as absolutely necessary. I think during the Trump administration, we saw a lot of just shocking things about our Justice Department and how a president can kind of start to use it, treat it as his own kind of personal lawyers. How would you.

"Many of you too, I have come to really appreciate that who we have in the judiciary matters a whole bunch like a lot. And we're not just talking at the level of the Supreme Court or the federal bench, all of that. But we're talking about even in the local areas in our states and in our cities. And for today, because this is my podcast, I am calling an audible. I'm breaking my own rule. My guess is not an Asian American of any kind. He's a friend and full disclosure. I've actually contributed to his campaign to be elected as a superior court judge in Los Angeles County. His name is Patrick hare and first and foremost Patrick, welcome to my home. Welcome to the podcast. Pleasure to be here. I've enjoyed listening to it over the years. I've had several friends that have been guests and it's an honor to be here. I think we sort of got introduced to each other through was a rob Asgard. Yes. Yeah, okay, so I'm sure roger gonna listen to this episode. Rob has been a guest many years ago. He definitely is someone who's networked in a very interesting way. And we just kind of knew each other virtually through the Facebook group that he said up renting and raving and all of that. But I'd say within the last two years, we've actually crossed paths and as I've come to know you off the Facebook page as someone who's been in the public defender's office in LA county for well over 30 years and someone who actually has a master's degree from my Alma mater in past need a fuller seminary, I was fascinated and em fascinated that you've taken the step professionally to run to be a superior court judge in Los Angeles County. So what are you crazy? Why not leave well enough alone? Yeah, I'm so close to retirement with the public defender's office. It's fascinating my wife reminds me that when we began dating years ago, she asked me if I ever wanted to become a judge and at that time, my answer was no. I came to be an attorney in a climate much different than the legal environment we're living in today. The pendulum had really swung far to the right. There are three strikes law came into effect. The gang enhancements, which tend to be filed for people of color and the poor, primarily, were in place and the old adage if your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail and the main tool in the criminal justice system for much of my career has been incarceration. And it's only been in the last few years that states and counties throughout the country are beginning to reevaluate their approach to criminal justice and realizing that the revolving door of the prison system is not working. People are not coming out of the prison system transformed and rehabilitated into the people that we need them to be to succeed and thrive and participate in our culture. They're coming out worse often they were. They're coming out deeply traumatized by the experience and continuing the behaviors that got them there in the first place. So as that Pendleton began to swing back the other way with a new focus on treatment, particularly for those suffering from mental illness and substance abuse issues and issues of homelessness, the sort of destabilizing effects that so often lead to criminality in the first place that I began to see a role for myself in the judiciary. Too many judges are steeped in the old narrative, and we need judges that are open to providing opportunities for transformation too many times I'd have a client and I would approach the judge and the prosecutor and say I would love for this person to get into this dual diagnosis mental health substance abuse program and the judge and the DA would say, well, they should have done that 30 years ago because now they've been to prison 5 different times. So their chance has passed them by, when in fact they very often were never offered that program and their first term or their second or their third or their 5th, and now that is the reason for denying them that treatment that they so desperately need. So part of it was coming after 30 years in the public defender's office. I was starting to look for another way to contribute to the community with my particular skills and passions for justice. And also beginning to see that I believe there really could be a place for someone like myself in the judiciary. So that's what started this process a couple of years ago. Well, what I learned from you at one of your fundraiser events is that the typical attorney who gets elected to the superior court bench is usually on the DA side of the line. It's very unusual, very rare for someone to go from being a public defender to being a judge. Did I hear you correctly? In Los Angeles County ever since the courts have been unified, there used to be a municipal court and then a superior court. But since all the courts have been unified in California, no public defender has ever been elected judge and virtually always district attorneys or attorneys from what's called big law, big law firms get elected. And I think part of that was just the tenor of the times. There was a lot more emphasis in the culture on get tough on crime. And so for part of that, a lot of public defenders see themselves as people that are fighting against the system, but not all of us do. For many years, no public defenders ran at all. And so in the last 20 years, I can only think of three public defenders that ran. Now, when you're on the ballot, you get what's called a ballot designation, district attorneys will generally put deputy district attorney in times past. They were allowed to put such white hat terms as child molester prosecutor. Prosecutor, homicide prosecutor, and none of the public defenders in the past had had the courage to list themselves as deputy public defender. I think there's a conception, a misconception in our culture that people that are public defenders are not real attorneys or that they need to be a public defender for so many years before they become a district attorney, not realizing the large number of people that are deeply passionate about issues of justice, helping the poor that are public defenders their entire career. Unfortunately, that stereotype carries over to our clients that often refer to us as public pretenders because they have not we're not sending them a bill at the end of our service. So no public defender has ever been elected judge in Los Angeles County in no public defender has run under the designation as a deputy public defender. Several things have changed in the last few years that have given me the courage to declare myself to be a deputy public defender in my ballot designation. One is, as I've alluded to, there's beginning to be a shift in the culture towards an emphasis on treatment over incarceration. We're seeing not only in Los Angeles, but in Philadelphia and Boston in San Francisco, progressive prosecutors being elected to bring in elements of restorative justice into our criminal justice system. And then fortuitously in the last year, we had the nomination of catan G Brown Jackson to be a Supreme Court Justice, and she's now been confirmed. So there's been a lot of notions in the air about public defenders actually being qualified to serve as judges. So it's a historic year, not only myself, but 5 other attorneys from the public defender's office in Los Angeles County are running for judge and our ballot designation for all of us is deputy public defender..

Hey, brain stuff, Lauren bogle bomb here. Let's talk today about Bugs Bunny. Although a bug's esque character appeared in a cartoon in 1938. Bugs as we'd recognize him today first appeared on July 27th of 1940, in a cartoon titled a wild hare. His character was well received by children and adults alike. This and the fact that his debut coincided with America's golden age of animation helped secure his spot as one of Warner Brothers, main cartoon characters. During World War II, bugs got another boost. The several air force troops, including the 380th bombardment group, chose bugs as their mascot, and the Marine Corps designated him an honorary master sergeant. He starred in propaganda cartoons, made specifically for American soldiers, stationed in Europe, as well as government advertisements for wartime bonds. Bugs Bunny went on to star in a 150 films, appear as the first animated character on a postage stamp, receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and be ranked number one on a list of the 50 greatest cartoon characters compiled by TV guide. Although many have attempted to identify what sets Bugs Bunny apart from the cartoon crowd, perhaps the late Chuck Jones, the longtime writer and producer of Bugs Bunny, described it best. His daughter, Linda Jones clough, told Smithsonian magazine, and my father's attitude was that bugs already existed, and they were just writing about him. He would come home in the evening and say to my mother, you won't believe what Bugs Bunny said today. What do you mean she would say? You wrote it. No, I discovered under the circumstances that this is what he would say. Whether Bugs Bunny was conceived as a rabbit or a hare isn't clear. Although the word bunny is part of his name, many of his cartoons had hair in the title, including Bill of hair, and fallen hair. Of course, that could be wordplay rather than scientific nomenclature. Before we hop to the wrong conclusion, let's take a look at some of the characteristic differences between rabbits and hares. Although rabbits and hares are all from the Laporte family, they're classified under 9 different genera, 8 for rabbits and one for hairs, and 53 species, 21 for rabbits, and 32 for hairs. And they start life in markedly different ways. Hairs are pregnant for about 42 days and deliver fully developed newborns called leverets. Well, bunnies have a 30 day gestational period, and give birth to kids that don't yet have fur or the ability to regulate their body temperature. Hairs also have jointed skulls, unlike those of any other mammal, this gives them cranial kinesis, which means that their skull bones can move relative to each other. In ways that humans, for example, can't. Our jaw is our only movable skull joint. Hairs have an intracranial one that researchers think helps them distribute the impact of long running leaps. Hairs have longer ears and longer legs than rabbits, which seems to tip the scale in favor of Bugs Bunny being a hair. Hairs look lanky in ways that rabbits with their shorter ears and shorter legs just don't. Also, hairs are more likely to be gray in color. Though hairs and rabbits both come in a range of colors and patterns, from white to brown to black, with lots of gradients in between. The hairs are also less social than bunnies. Hairs don't hang out with their families, and by all accounts, neither does bugs. But hairs live completely above ground, whereas Bugs Bunny lives in a burrow, like a rabbit. At most bunnies, create burrows or warrens in which they live and hide their young. There is one thing that could clear all this up. DNA analysis, a rabbits have 44 chromosomes, while members of the hair genus have 48. So, analysis of Bugs Bunny genetic material would wrap this up once and for all. Except that he's not real. So maybe, instead of splitting hairs over taxonomy, we should all just relax with a carrot or three, and enjoy some classic cartoons.

That should make him feel better, but the reason she smiling is because she's hanging a picture of Keith over their bed. Steve turns around and walks out. His head and his heart both pounding now. He walks through the commune's Lake, trying to figure out where his life went off course. He was a college dropout with a surfer's good looks, the mala de mer when he joined the Detroit temple in 74. He fit in, people liked him. Soon after, he decided to move to the Los Angeles temple, where his trusting nature was taken advantage of. In his mind, he calls it the incident. Steve was a good moss, and in LA he considered it an act of service to give massages to the senior disciples. But one day, the high ranking disciple demanded more than just a massage. Steve barked, deeply uncomfortable. But the disciple kept pressuring him, saying he was on a higher spiritual plane than Steve, and that this wasn't a physical act. An act of spiritual devotion. Steve couldn't contradict a respected disciple. He gave in, and was left feeling guilty, confused, and angry. He's a failure. As a devotee, a father and most of all, as a husband. He's miserable, but his wife Jane is thriving. She falls over Keith, talking about him constantly. As Jane's husband, Steve should be the object of her affection. Instead, it's Keith. Steve feels trapped. He knows he deserves better. He has so much more to offer the commune, all he needs is the opportunity to prove himself. He should have a job with real responsibilities, not making cheap ornaments and breathing toxic fumes. He decides to stop by Keith's office to make his case. Enter. Steve tries to stand tall and proud, but as soon as he walks in, Keith smiling face becomes a sneer. The Steve's confidence evaporates. Thank you for seeing me, maharaj. I wanted to talk to you about what I have to offer the commune. Oh, have you come into a large inheritance? I'm joking. Oh. Yeah, no, I have not. I just think that I have lots of skills and I could be more useful if I had a better job better. Your current job isn't good enough for you, is new for and not good enough for you? What about your wife? Is she good enough? Am I good enough? That's not what I mean maharaj, not at all. Everything is wonderful here. It's just that I get terrible headaches from the fiberglass fumes. The problem is not the fumes. The problem is you. You haven't sufficiently surrendered. But I chant every there's more to spiritual surrender than chanting. You are so far to go. I'm trying to guide you yet you come here to complain. No Maharaja. I'm not complaining. You should work all day, then drop your knees in gratitude, and thank me for the opportunity to be of service. But I am grateful. I just.

"Keith isn't counting on cops like westfall to protect the hearty Christmas. After the alleged biker gang attacked, the Swami urged Keith to defend the commune himself. So as far as Keith's concerned, he has the Swami's blessing to use any means necessary. And as fate, or perhaps Krishna would have it, Thomas Drescher showed up a few months later. In April of 1978, Keith initiates treasure and gives him the name tirta. Tears unofficial title is chief enforcer. He is a plan for how to stop the locals from harassing the devotees. All it will take is a little negotiating. He keeps his eye on a local bar called the sky view in. It's on a road that runs through the middle of the Christmas territory, and it's a favorite watering hole of locals. After a night of drinking, they'll often try to run Krishna's off the road, or take pot shots at their houses. One of the worst offenders lives in a battered trailer across the street from the sky view in. His name is Jerry Williams, and tirta is determined to teach him a lesson. He just needs the right opportunity. One gloomy overcast day, tear to us passing through the nearby village of elm grove. It's nothing but a couple of shops in a supermarket, but sitting in the supermarket parking lot is Jerry's pickup. Tirta takes it as a sign. He parks his truck and grabs the Louisville slugger he keeps behind the passenger seat. He sits on the running board and waits patiently. After a few minutes, tears target exits the market and heads towards his truck. Laden with bags of groceries. Cheer to walks up behind him, and in his most neighborly voice says, hey, let me help you with that. As Jerry turns, tear to swings. The back connects with Jerry's right knee and he goes down. But here isn't done. He raises the bat and hits Jerry again and again as he rise on the ground. When tear to satisfied his point has been made, he leans in and smiles. Think about this the next time you play games with us, Jerry. There's a lot more coming if you don't wise up. Next, dear to firebombs a local's house to retaliate for the Krishna home that was burned down. Rumors spread through town that the hairy critters are armed and dangerous. The harassment drops off. Tear test methods are effective. But it's not just the locals who fear tear to. Many of the residents are afraid of him, too. And here to life it that way. He's got a sadistic streak. He enjoys seeing fear in a man's eyes when he walks into a room. The devotees begin to worry is tear to following orders from Keith or is he alone wolf? Some argue that tear to his crazy. Doing things Keith would never approve of. Others insist the key this orchestrating every move, but pretends to be in the dark so he can be held responsible. Whomever is pulling the strings, it's just the beginning of a violence that will turn locals even more against them. And have the Krishna community terrified.

"In 1967, New York City's Greenwich Village is the worldwide center of cool. And that's where Keith wants to stay, but staying has become difficult. He finds himself taking detours to avoid walking past the hare Krishna temple on second avenue. Avoiding cafes if he sees anyone inside wearing an orange robe. He's where he wants to be, and yet he feels lost. The Hari Krishna movement gave his life focus and meaning. Now, he's a pariah. But he's not ready to give up. He still believes in Krishna, and more importantly, he believes in himself. Ever since Keith was drawn out of the New York temple, he's been scheming about how he and his lover Howard can build their own movement. After all, where would the Swami be without Keith? And when he's finished, iskan will be begging to be part of it. Is Khan is the international society for Krishna consciousness, formed by Swami prabhu pad just 18 months earlier. Keith takes a page from the Swami sport by giving his group an equally long name. The first united church of Krishna, youth organization underground. The group has two members, Howard and Keith, but that doesn't stop Keith from printing up letterhead and sending angry missives to all the people who spoke out against him and called him black Keith. He hopes they're smart enough to read the message in the acronym. FUCK, why OU. When that doesn't work, Keith takes another page from the Swami's book. Actually, he takes 900 pages, a 900 page translation of the Bhagavad Gita that Howard has been working on since they met probably pod. Now Keith takes the manuscript, replaces the Swami's name with his own and shops it to publishers. But no publisher will buy it. They find it hard to believe that two young Americans could have done the translation from Sanskrit in just a couple of years. Keith is forced to admit that while he has the intellect, the passion and the charisma to be a religious leader, he lacks a plan for how to become one. So he does what he always does when he needs an answer. He asks Krishna for guidance, and he chance. He promises to keep an open mind and an open heart and look for any signs that might appear in unexpected ways. Two months later, he's sitting in a cafe when he opens a copy of the San Francisco Oracle. The oracle is one of the nation's first psychedelic newspapers. Inside is a letter to the editor. Dear sirs are madams. I am, have been for nearly 20 years, trying to form an ashram of sorts here in West Virginia. The author is a man named Richard rose, he is a farm in rural Appalachia and dream of turning it into a commune. The latter continues. The conception is one of a nonprofit non interfering non denominational retreat or refuge, where philosophers might come to work communally together. Certainly, the letter is a little strange, and Keith hasn't exactly been dreaming of a move to the backwoods of West Virginia, but rose is offering free use of his land in exchange for Kindred spirits to help him realize his vision. Keith rushes home and composes a letter. A few months later, Keith and Howard traveled to moundsville, West Virginia. It's a beautiful drive through Appalachian hills dotted with snow covered maples and poplars and age red barns. Spring is around the corner, but there's still a winter chill in the air. Looking around, he sees a sign for limestone hill road, and the young men follow a gravel drive over a ridge. At the end is a 90 acre goat farm, waiting for them is the owner. Richard rose. But this isn't the farm he's offering. He tells them to hop in his truck to drive to his ashram of sorts. It's an abandoned property with no electricity in a single dilapidated building. There's not even a passable road. They have to hike the last mile to reach the farmhouse through a foot of snow. The farmhouse itself is falling apart. The roof looks like it won't survive the winter. Richard rose turns Keith and Howard. This is it. Let's go in and get out of the cold. But inside it's not much warmer. The wind blows right through the cracks in the siding. Needs a little work, of course, but it's a beautiful spot, isn't it? Keith forces a smile. He doesn't dare look at Howard. Howard thought this was a crazy idea right from the start, and he's not completely wrong. Heath has never run a farm, but when he looks out the window at the snow covered hills and the stands of hardwood trees, the voice whispers inside him. This is it. You belong here. Richard rose keeps up a steady patter of small talk, telling them about all the letters he received, mostly hippies who ramble on about acid trips and higher consciousness. Rose's thick white mustache and heavy boots make him look like a farmer. But instead of a cowboy hat, he wears a black beret. He's a little bit country, a little bit beatnik, and a little bit crazy. I've studied all the great religions and they're all a pile of bullshit. I'll tell you what I am. I'm a rebel. In search of the truth, now tell me about you. Keith senses that what rose wants more than anything is to feel like someone understands him. He nods and fixes rose with a sympathetic stair. We are seekers too, but it's been a difficult journey. There are so many charlatans out there. In fact, we're former krishnas. You don't say, well, if you don't mind, why'd you leave? The movement is doomed. The Swami doesn't have any vision. We're here because we want to start over. Make our own commune. This place looks perfect. How much are you asking? Rose shakes his head so vigorously his Bahrain nearly flies off. No, no, not for sale, no long-term leaves, no dogma, no one religion, no rules. I want to make sure this is a place where anyone is welcome. Keith looks out the window again, but this time he imagines beautiful temples and devotees tending cows. He certainly it's the answer to his prayers. And now, every sermon he's preached, every argument he's won every ounce of charm and charisma, he's mustered have come down to this moment. He's going to convince this man that the farm should be his. Keith talks to rose into the night and through the next day, trying to convince him that they share the same vision. But rose wants a say in how the communists run, and he's highly suspicious of anyone who wants to be in charge. Keith promises every secret will be welcomed with open arms. Finally rose agrees to let them stay, but he still won't give them a lease. It's a start, and for the first time in months, Keith has reason to be hopeful. Back in India, Swahili prime pod is busy as well. Devotees tell him he must rest and recover, but Swami's brush with death has given him a newfound sense of urgency. He is more determined than ever to follow his dream of bringing Krishna consciousness to the world in whatever years he has left. He chooses disciples to open new temples in Seattle, Santa Fe in Boston. He returns to San Francisco, where he draws huge crowds in Golden Gate park for his sank here tons. Joyous public performances of call and response chanting, dancing in music. Young people disillusioned with the world created by their parents are enthralled. Don't trust anyone over 30, maybe their mantra, but they.

This is a term that i feel is like micro influencing determines becoming more known but in practice. It's not really. I don't know if it's being done well where it's being done. Well we can get into that. But i know that you're the brains behind pretty creative and interesting insurance influence or campaign. And i was hoping that maybe able to share with us a little bit about what that campaign even is. And how do you go about understanding polling finding reaching out to influencers And talk us through how you came up with this idea because it's it's outrageously awesome that yet we're still early stages right.

I believe that the next six months frankly are going to be if not as word or mourn for the past fifteen months that we've gone through here and doing whatever icier with my university control trillion. Sure that they're motivated. They're they're staying healthy getting You know the things that they need certain feel comfortable and safe and you know stay motivated to continue to do great work and i think s new my primary voguish removed for sure a team in place and they wanna say yeah. Listen i think you know even if you have on social media it doesn't matter what platform whether it's twitter lincoln. You know mental mental health wellness wellbeing workplace wellness all these hashtags and conversations. That are taking place. I agree with you that the next six months a lot of organizations are redefining. What it means to work how they need to take care of their employees. And i can speak you and i have worked a few times and i've seen your team. You know you lead a mighty team of mighty large team oba great team and i think what's interesting for me to understand too is as as a marketing leader yourself. What are the expectations. You have of yourself. I know that it's you know making sure your team is okay But what are the expectations you have on yourself as a leader and then what do you want most for your employees. Yeah that's a great one giant. I seen me. I mean this industry. I mean the biggest justly for me right is a level of risk right and just by nature the industry a an insurance assistance to very risk. Averse right and you know for me coming into this is very different. So had come from a sports management sports marketing organization rice. There was for this kind of chaperone. Bit of kind getting the team comfortable with chicken. Some more risk right and and risk in the easy you do risk in trying new things and you know the sheriff that right and being okay. It doesn't work that you know that's a So for me coming in years leader. That's the thing that island with fresno team you know the most is like let's let's take some risks the more of the care that and the second big and say in in that. And that's that back your mind. Starch shared stories being radically transparent. Note this down if you wanna listening year now but so my international best did bay all senior leaders make you sit down with the two balanced so i sit down down. I'm brand.

So you know i am here in in my first team is through in fact all more of the stories and whether that's you know on social weather that's you know in our material or marketing or what we do that. Is our differentiator. Snowing us to space. I think you know there's a lot of talk right like post if we're even in post kobe around storytelling in being a great storyteller When you were in that assistant center in your hearing these stories for the first time and you were sharing like oh my god like what was going through your head.

Strong, Black, and Hot Enough To Give You Second Degree Burns
"Lack women oprah beyond saying and all your favorite reaction means. I've heard people say they like their women like they like their coffee. Strong black hot enough to give you second degree burns. Careful what you wish for darius but the thing is not all black women are strong and even the ones that are strong aren't just that we doors open for us to especially with someone with biceps like michael jordan. Ads like michael jordan. Hare like michael b jordan but unfortunately a strong black woman stereotype is rained in american culture. It has a long history. About as old as morgan freeman and batty white combined now you may be wondering what is a strong black woman is the idea that black women are emotionally resilient naturally selfless to browns ask for help and can succeed with no resources so basically every care to play by viola davis. The irony is the strong black woman. Stereotype was started by black women to combat all the negative ones the in the aftermath of slavery there were really only to stereotypes of black women. You were either from sex temperatures jacksonville or a man who was just there to smother people in booze in response black suffragette mary. Church terrell point strong black woman motto listing as we climb and i get what she was going for butt lift as we climb even bodybuilders. Don't do both at the same time. You expect a black woman to do more than swertz nigger in his prime but overtime society shrank of black woman down to just her strikes and the popular conception now is that black women can bear and overcome any birth. We see all over our culture in movies like the color purple who my life. And how can we forget ghost. We're whoopi goldberg literally has to let a white man. U's her body to rub foreheads with his fiancee. Even when black women only have one line strong as hell move you will be moved. Damn at least let her say hello. Let's all say what's wrong with being perceived as strong. Isn't it a good thing. No not if black women destroy their mental and physical health trying to live up to it and not people think black women are so strong they make them do all the work on their own. Look stacey abrams. She helped democrats win georgia and before you knew it. Using active vaccine distribution the new york. Subway and kim and guy is marriage. The stereotype even reaches the doctor's office. Black women are less likely to be properly diagnosed. They have a much higher maternal mortality rate. And they're less likely to be believed about their symptoms and pay so a black woman basically has to be a doctor to know everything that's going on with her body and then convinced another doctor that that's what's happening. I was in. a car. Accident lacerations and internal bleeding a morphine drip and prep surgery stack. We'll get you a couple of bandaids. you'll be fine. What's so the next time you see a black woman struggling at work or trying to lift the box help her. Don't just stand there like you're about to see wonder woman in action in fact if you're in the new york area moving this week and i could use some help moving my couch because i'll be damned if i'm going to back lifting my own couch.
Should I Pay Off Debt Before Selling Stocks?
"So i'm twenty five due to a very fortunate situation i kinda got doubly lucky here and got some money from my parents and my grandfather and also got really lucky investing in some things. I didn't completely understand what that money like. You often say The tricky part about that now is the ninety. Five percent of my net worth is in stocks. And i only make fifty grand a year Getting ready to buy a house at my fiance. i'm just concerned about the capital. Gains tax hit to create a downtown for the house. Some thinking i've made my fair share of dumb decisions but this money being young obviously Got a big chevy tahoe. That you know. I don't think i necessarily deserve. But i just happened to like something and do i sell it number. One deduct free and create positive equity to maybe absorb that tax. It or keep the truck just because i enjoy it is the truck paid for twenty thousand muslim but Yeah i i'm either way. I'm not taking the car anymore. So i'm thinking bill situations neither reading it off and you're twenty five years old. You make fifty thousand twenty eight thousand dollar truck and you have how much in this investment account. Six hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Wow wow yeah you've got you've been blessed beyond measure he s and how much how much of that is gain that is over a year old Probably about seventy percent of it okay. So that'll be taxed at fifteen percent and it's in single stocks and from the way you're describing this it sounds like it's fairly high risk situation in my right Some of it is the i decided you know. I got scared of it pretty early. So i moved sixty percent of the into management. I would say the other. Forty percent is individual stocks around consumer data collection and medical diagnostic collection. Yeah yeah uber. High risk cutting edge small-cap technologies and. Yeah you're pretty much. Playing russian roulette with those things are the roulette wheel anyway So The way i answer questions. We answered questions on this show is what would we do if we woke up in your shoes. Yeah man first off. Thank goodness you're where you are. Congratulations that's wonderful. The danger is that it worked that you may try to do it again. That's that's the dangerous part. It's like the guy that drops one quarter into a slot machine wins and he spends the rest of his vacation but all his money in the slot machine. Try and do it again. because you're not going to do it again. I d i. I do not have investments of those types because They scare me and And my real estate portfolio alone is worth hundreds of millions. So i can speak with Emotional authority in this situation. How it feels. When i was your age i was a millionaire and lost everything. And i don't want you to fall into that. What i would do is i would Move anything that is not in a managed account in mutual funds. Into that. And i would pay off the truck tomorrow if you're going to keep it Normally we say do not own things that are more than half your annual income. This is barely but you also have six hundred and fifty thousand freaking dollars laying over here so. I think you can afford a driver's truck if you want to write And then Believe it or not. I'm going to suggest you do not buy a home with your fiance right now. On number one. You don't buy homes with people you're not married to After you're married. I would rent something even if it's something nice for six months get to know each other. It takes about a year of being married to know how close to your mother in law by. Yeah yeah in other. After a year of marriage you will make different housing decision than you would make today together. We've been running here for about two years. We've been married. yeah correct after. You've been married a while. You will make a different decision. You would make as shacked up john say's It's a different thing. Just is true and so i would take my time. And you've been the. There's a tortoise and the hare you've been the hair and you're ahead in the race and i'm going to switch sides and become the tortoise and i'm just gonna slow your butt down on the investing and on the house i'm really happy where you're where you are and you're obviously a very sharp guy. Yeah i mean you're obviously very bright so you may not do anything we say to you called and asked us which the danger of that is. We're gonna tell you. Tell you the truth and i think he will dave. I think he's he's a little nervous a little scared. He wants to make the right decisions. She wants house. Yeah and. Here's the thing. Dave i was going to say instead of for you know. Save like you said spent the first six months we year when she will get married and then with him walking away after he pays the capital gains. I pay cash. I'll pay cash for the house. That's why i was gonna say did i. And i'm saying it's like a two three hundred thousand four hundred. I don't care i've hundred. I don't care now you're good really. Everything's paid for everything. The money's gone. Yeah of it your all your taxes. Well i mean by the time you guys not the. It's back. investment accounts. Guess yes your taxes at fifteen percent on seventy percent of six fifty is just. That's not gonna cripple. The situation is And yes i would pay the capital gains in order to get this in the right setting and it doesn't sound like that much of it's gonna be subject to capital gains because sound like you've already done that when you moved from these higher higher risk things into the manage stuff you probably took your capital gain chen you liquidated investments to move them. That's my guess anyway I don't know exactly how you did that. But that's that's what it sounds like. You did to me so anyway. I'm gonna pay what capital gains. You got to pay for making the move and get it all undermanaged and i would sit there something for a little for a year after marriage six months after you're married then i would buy with cash and pay off the car today and i wanna say to america listening. You are processing at work for him. Let me go try that. No do not do it. I mean i think the numbers. They've update numbers right around. Seventy eight percent of the people who play in his field. Do not make a dime. They actually lose money and so Yes you hear. It worked over here But it does not mean more than likely if you had a buddy that will hit a lottery. Ticket doesn't mean that smart by lottery tickets. It's just you know that's the bottom line. And so and brandis are gavin smart enough to wise enough to be a little bit afraid in this situation. But congratulations that you're there. I'm so happy that you're twenty five years old and six hundred fifty thousand dollars. That's just so cool. That's so neat. And thanks for calling in asking the question.
Samsungs Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G: All the details on the $2,000 foldable
"Just large galaxy. No twenty three weeks ago. Now it's time for the Godsey full to five Jeez chance to shine. That is a mouthful brought her Chang, and this is your daily charge. Joining me is he not reporter and Samson expert tooken extra me Machar, thanks for having me. So the gutsy full to five G. and that is a really really long name. I'm just GONNA. Keep that point. It got a minor tease at Samsung's event a few back but now it gets the spotlight to itself. So just before we get into all the specs in all the other details, let's let's get the important that other way how much does this thing cost? So in the US is going to cost two thousand dollars. So basically, it's twenty dollars more than last year's model. So it's a lot of money. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That does a huge amount of money. All right. Well, this is. This is a foldable and I get the full supposed to be expensive and it is Simpson's third foldable annexed assessor to last year's fold, which famously had allowed durability issues. So what's different about? Full to in what did Samsung do to make sure this phone holds up What we saw with the flip that they had this spring was that they really had addressed a lot of the issues that the first fold had. So they dealt with the problems with the hinge kind of the crease all of the things that people were complaining about they fix those We're GONNA see a lot of those improvements in the new Z. Fold to as well as. A few like updates from the flip earlier this year. So they've redesigned the hinge and it's the same as what we saw in the flip. So you can have it. You can rest the phone kind of you know at a eighty degree angle or whatever you know set it on your table. They also have these brushes inside the hinge. So in this, they had those earlier, but this is kind of the latest greatest version of those basically to kind of mixture, dust doesn't get in the device or you know whatever is in your purse when you wrote this in there. So they, they've done those sorts of things to address a lot of those issues that we saw last year got in in case God forbid something does happen phone are there any special warranty programs or anything they're doing to kind of make sure that folks peace of mind that spending two thousand dollars on something we're kind of seeing the same sort of offers that they had before were. They'll replace the off the. Screen like a one time replacement for around one fifty. So it's less than if you had to go replace the screen on your own. So that's the sort of thing to kind of try to make it. More. Realistic. Well, if the screen breaks I'm not going to have to pay two thousand dollars to get a new phone I can pay one fifty that replaced the screen and it'll be like new again. No let's about how this differs from the previous model obviously. There's a five gene, the name. So clearly will have five, the Axis. But how much five G. is we've talked about in previous episodes you there's different flavors of it. Right so how much access does this phone actually get on the five networks? On this phone basically is all of the five G. networks like this is a really or at least the major ones that we're using right now this is a very big advance over the folds in terms of a lot of things there's five G.. One of the biggest complaints about the first fold was the tiny screen on the front of the device. It wasn't really useful enough to actually use. The fold as a phone people were tending to just automatically have to open it and use kind of that bigger tablet size screen. So what they've got this time is a screen on the front that stretches across the entire front of the device and it just makes it look last year. It's more useful. So I think people will up using this more when it's closed, not just always having to open it. Yet with the five G., we have a five G. model at all last year for the fold in the US. So this time you know five jeep bigger screen. A lot of things that just make this more attractive and the other a features or bells and whistles that. Help this phone stand apart from his predecessor. Another big thing it's kind of that flex. Mod is what they call it. So that's what we saw I with the flip where you could set the device on the table and the screen will stay open in you know whatever degree you put it in. We're seeing that with this one as well. So they're saying, yeah, you can set it up for like shooting You know a video or whatever or you know or if you're watching something or whatever you can just basically has a built in that's the screen and the device itself So you know that's a big thing that I think people really like that was kind of a cool thing that came with the flip. So. That's one of the bigger changes that they kind of also made some good camera changes with this Basically, they addressed the biggest complaints that everyone had with last year's device and fix those in this one aside from the fact that it's still a two thousand dollar phone. You asked him we were on we talked about the the narrow sliver of customers who are willing to buy a thousand dollar note twenty now this is. A two thousand dollar phone I know it's foldable but. Questions about how useful that is who is Samsung actually targeting with this particular phone Samsung. Is actually targeting note owners with this phone. They found that the people who would traditionally gravitate towards the note lineup. Kind of those early adopters who want the latest greatest tech are willing to spend a lot of money to get a flashy device to get a bigger device and. They're finding that people who were buying the fold are a lot of people who have bought the note in the past or still do the notes It's the way they distinguish the flip and the full term. Each other is they see the flip is this sort of like. Cute. Phone that becomes smaller and put. You can put it in your pocket and it's more of kind of. Everyday lifestyle device and they see the folds as really kind of letting you transition from a phone to a tablet like get more done doing more with multitasking and access different APPS like Microsoft Office. You know things that you would do on a tablet but now you also have an inconvenience of the fact that is also your phone right and then you mentioned MC sophism I'm just curious in your. Demos with this device, how like whether they showed off how you use after how took advantage of this bigger screen? Well, they've kind of had this thing since the first generation of fold where it's called continuity where you could start an APP on the front and then open, it will open at work in the bigger screen and pick up where it left off the issue was there were not ten of APPs that took advantage of it I hope that we start to see more apps soon that work with it. kind of sense than. Samsung has been working more closely with Google and Microsoft and Youtube an office and things like that, and then there's that flex MoD. Also where APPs could you could maybe have you can take like a screen shot of something in an APP over here and then drag it to another APP on another part of your screen more with multitasking. So letting you have multiple APPs open at once is a big thing with the fold You know kind of more of that tablets sort of experience instead of just a phone experience. Give everything that's going on. We're still in the middle of pandemic a still dealing with the recession with millions unemployed. What do you think about Samsung unveiling a phone at this price point? It's kind of the same situation that we saw the note where people who? Would want to buy. This are probably people who were not hurt financially by what's going on right now because they're not traveling, they're not going out to dinners they're not going out to bars. Some people are probably saving money right now and they may see, hey, this is a lot flashier device from what was last year. It. Sampson's had a year to work out the kinks. Maybe this is worth investing in. The two thousand dollars is not unrealistic based on what is actually going into the device is just kind of a question of individual people have to decide if they're willing to pay two thousand dollars, but we have to remember this technology is still really early like foldable screens. This is basically just the second year first full year of seem devices with these. So it's not like these have. been around forever like like regular led displays Five G. is brand new. That is also expensive it adds cost to a device. So you know it's just kind of what you're willing to do but then you know as we've talked before, there's kind of factor of with foldable. You get these because you want people to see them. It's kind of how like iphones used to be like. The newest generations had to have some sort of little tweaks to make it. Make people know that you have the newest device, not that s off your device or whatever that you didn't buy like a two year old phone or year old bound. So it's the same sort of thing with this with you know when people are out using a foldable people, stop them ask what is that? Can I see what is and right now you really don't want anybody close enough to you to touch your phone or see it or or even be out that much to have people see it. So you know it's kind of the whole if you're in it just for the flash flashing aspect is probably not worth it but if you're in it because you want a device that transitions from phone to tablet. It would be attractive for people and thinks, lastly, I heard this phone grants some unusual perks what do you actually get with this phone? So it seems has this sort of VIP program for the folds and you get a membership with it. It's kind of unclear how this actually work works. They said there'll be some benefits like six months free of of this like premium fitness workout system like fifty dollars off like a hare service, six months of free of linked premium. Free Golf membership you know a Michelin Star meal that you can get delivered to your home It's it's a bunch of things where it's like. Okay like you know, I don't know how much people take these and the other thing is they said that these are going to be coming to people who bought the previous fold people who bought the flip. So it's not like you have to buy the new fold to take advantage of this if you really want access to whatever these things are under hoping to add more benefits We'll have to see same is actually done this for a long time with its phones.

Why Was the Mad Hatter Mad?
"To brainstorm a production of iheartradio. Hey brain stuff lauren. Vogel bomb here. If you've read Lewis Carroll's Alice's adventures in Wonderland or seen the movie adaptations the character of the mad. Hatter is bound to have left an impression. He's eccentric to say the least as presides over a rollicking tea party that Alice attends but the idea of being mad as a hatter will in the British sense mad meaning crazy not angry. It didn't come from Carol and if you like. Alice have a tendency to fall down. Rabbit holes this phrase is an interesting one. Carroll's book was published in eighteen sixty five but the Oxford English dictionary puts the earliest known use of mad as a hatter in eighteen twenty nine. That's three and a half decades before any march hare's or dorm. I sipped tea or the Cheshire. Cat made his famous claim of the General Madness of the inhabitants of wonderland. Where all mad here? The actual origin of the phrase mad as a hatter is unknown but it's believed to be connected to mercury poisoning in hat makers several years after Allah's had her first appeared in eighteen. Eighty three the phrase hatters shakes was used to describe the condition caused by mercury poisoning. The symptoms include muscle tremors and mental and behavioral changes. Wonderland's hatter behaves strangely in the novel as do most of the characters but his friend seemed to accept his oddities as being normal today. Mercury poisoning is known to the medical and scientific communities as Eric Ism. The modern list of symptoms include irritability and mania both of which the hatter displays. But there's also sleep disturbances. Depression disturbance hearing loss and those telltale tremors at least the bladder of which the hatter does not seem to have though to be fair. He only appears briefly. You may be glad to learn that. Although short term exposure to Mercury Ken 'cause Earth Ism. It usually goes away if you can avoid further contact with mercury long-term exposure such as that that dental professionals and chemical workers experience can mean the symptoms persist in any case. Eric ISM is a rare disease after the tea party. During the playing card court trial to determine who has stolen the tarts the hatter explains the king that he has no have his own because he sells all of the hats he has which brings us to the last stop in our rabbit hole. A what does mercury have to do with hats? It was part of a process called carrying in order to make felt which is what many hats are made of. You have to get the for of a beaver or rabbit to stick together in a Matt. Thick stiff fabric. A which means you have to get the for off of the skin to get the for off the skin. Cleanly mercuric nitrate was used. It came to be known as caring because the solution would turn the edges of the pelts orange as it dried modern haberdasher use hydrogen peroxide to remove the from the skin which is a slower but much safer process but apparently lose. Carol didn't mean to slander hatters via his tea party.

Jeremy Corbett the snap vote was called in attempt to resolve an impasse over brexit after more than three years of arguments in Westminster her over how to leave the European Union the debate in London and Brussels centers on Britain's relationship with Europe and the rest of the world but how much does that concern most host Brits and after all that wrangling what did they think of the options.

There are a few stones haring there but mainly. It's just trudging through muggy field. Let's sing it's a rather bucolic countryside.

Maybe today's things and under South Soak them and so what did he say when you spoke to him about about his politics foot like most geordies. He's of his generation. He spent most of his life version. Labor he blames the Tories for the demise of industry in this world.

New strategy defeats cancer cells that evade chemotherapy
"When the body sees toxic material immune cells kill it, by cancer cells release sneaky, they put the brakes on the immune system, immune checkpoint blockers. Stop that from happening you basically, preventing that brake from engaging. It would it be kind of similar like cancer had kind of has like this invisible cloak that it like kinda hides under. And then you kind of take off that Claudio by think that's a great way to describe it since the cancer is no longer invisible. The immune system can mount an attack. It was a huge breakthrough in the food and drug admin. Ration- approved the first drugs to do this in two thousand eleven the science behind the miracle. Drug was developed back in the nineties by a guy named max krummel in a lab at UC Berkeley, I was very frustrated graduate student for few years trying to develop an antibody that would do something after many long nights krummel noticed. His antibody was influencing the behavior of immune cells. You can drive a car you can exceleron them or you can break them. And then it was really like playtime. He started injecting the antibodies into sick mice and essentially in the various first set of experience my antibodies caused tumors to shrink now fast forward a couple of decades to Ashley Walton story her doctors hope the technology developed in crumbles lab could be the key to killing her cancer. But the treatment was haring when Ashley started receiving immunotherapy the ninety minute drips or followed by a slew of side effects. I started getting really high fevers, I got a few skin rashes gastritis. Still her tumors were shrinking then after six months, new lesions cropped up Ashley's abdomen. So we're doctors added a second immunotherapy drug to the mix. And fortunately, she had a lot of the drugs possible side effects. Yeah. I just generally felt like the life was being sucked out of me. So you go into a really dark place for several years actually hitchhiked from drug to drug just to stay alive. There are so many advancements being made in the field of immunotherapy that even if it doesn't cure. You. It gets you to the next big thing that wild ride paid off. She hasn't had an infusion in the last ten months, so technically in remission. Yes. That's. Stories like Ashley is are really exciting to on colleges. Dr Leonard Lipton. Feld is the chief medical officer for the American Cancer Society. So imagine when we've gone from the time when we had nothing to offer to today, and they're talking about cure for some patients with advanced melanoma, scientists and big pharma are really hopeful about the future. There's about a thousand current trials to develop new therapy drugs to help more people fight different kinds of cancer about thirty to forty percent of patients still do not respond to immunotherapy remember worth the beginning of the stern. We're not at the end. We still have a long way to go. We're gonna have ups, and we're going to have Down's back in the exam room. Ashley and her mom receives the prising news at our latest checkup with Dr Dowd. So what do you think about pregnancy are trying to start a family? So I think it's time to get pregnant actually. Ashley crosses her fingers and smiles for here and now unless they McLaren. Good news here now is production of NPR and WVU aren't association with the BBC World Service. I'm Robin young.
