"The <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> <Speech_Music_Female> <Speech_Music_Male> <Silence> <Speech_Telephony_Male> end. <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> When did you <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> come up with <SpeakerChange> this idea? <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> I kind of wasn't to <Speech_Female> come up with it was kind of just <Speech_Female> how I write. So <Speech_Female> I'm <Speech_Female> really interested <Speech_Female> in giving space <Speech_Female> to the radar <Speech_Female> or giving <Speech_Female> a breath or <Speech_Female> giving you some <Speech_Female> space to sit back and <Speech_Female> think on things. And <Speech_Female> at the start of the book, <Speech_Female> I've had some favor <Speech_Female> to people are like, <Speech_Female> oh, it's sort of <Speech_Female> caught up <Speech_Female> in it. I could be uncomfortable <Speech_Female> with the way the writing <Speech_Female> was. But then <Speech_Female> I got into it and I <Speech_Female> realized that's how I'm <Speech_Female> supposed to feel in the <Speech_Female> book. It's not a comfortable <Speech_Female> book. It's an uncomfortable <Speech_Female> book. So <Speech_Female> the <Speech_Female> idea that I can use to <Speech_Female> cardo or fragments <Speech_Female> or full <Speech_Female> stops in different <Speech_Female> places <Speech_Female> really gives a rhythm <Speech_Female> to the work <Speech_Female> and a pace to the <Speech_Female> work. <Speech_Female> And allows the <Speech_Female> reader to <Speech_Female> <SpeakerChange> think deeply <Speech_Female> or skip <Speech_Female> past, but it gives <Speech_Female> a nice rhyme which we all <Speech_Music_Female> have a rhythm in <SpeakerChange> the way that we <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> are, right? <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> And it also <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> accentuates <Speech_Male> the next idea <Speech_Male> that comes along. <Speech_Male> It's almost as if <Speech_Music_Male> we've stopped <Speech_Male> and this <Speech_Male> is <SpeakerChange> what <Speech_Male> follows. So <Speech_Female> it was really purposeful. <Speech_Female> Yeah. <Speech_Male> Really purposeful and <Speech_Female> also like, <Speech_Female> it was really important to <Speech_Female> actually challenge <Speech_Female> the writer of it. I mean, <Speech_Female> I think about books like, <Speech_Female> cool, quick orange, <Speech_Female> or <Speech_Female> those kind of <Speech_Female> books that are the southern Europe <Speech_Female> I can't read these <Speech_Female> bloody stuff try and <Speech_Female> spotting. I'm like, I don't <Speech_Female> understand this, <Speech_Female> but when you get <Speech_Female> into it a bit you go, oh <Speech_Female> wow, that totally makes <Speech_Female> sense at such a flow. <Speech_Female> So I think that <Speech_Female> was <SpeakerChange> a real <Speech_Male> influence to me as <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> well. The curious <Speech_Male> thing is that <Speech_Male> Cynthia, <Speech_Male> for all the violence <Speech_Male> that is <Speech_Male> perpetrated <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> upon her, <Speech_Male> comes out with <Speech_Male> I <Speech_Male> think a sense <Speech_Male> of identity <Speech_Male> or <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> self determination <Speech_Music_Male> about <Silence> her <Speech_Male> role, <Speech_Male> which is <Speech_Male> fascinating, but if <Speech_Music_Male> the reader wants to <Speech_Music_Male> find out more <Speech_Music_Male> about <Speech_Male> Cynthia <Speech_Male> and how she <Speech_Music_Male> survives the <Speech_Music_Male> struggle <Speech_Telephony_Male> of working in the <Speech_Music_Male> Avatar, which <Speech_Music_Male> is a place <Speech_Male> very much <Speech_Male> like a lot of <Speech_Male> institutions <Speech_Music_Male> around us <Speech_Music_Male> today, <Speech_Telephony_Male> including <SpeakerChange> our own <Speech_Male> federal parliament, <Speech_Male> though Ho. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Male> Need <Speech_Music_Male> to read <Speech_Male> the furies <Speech_Music_Male> by <Speech_Male> Mandy Beaumont <Speech_Male> and it <Speech_Male> is a hashtag <Speech_Music_Male> publication.

"Title of the book, then, is the furies. And these were the female deities of vengeance who were of the earth. And this notion becomes manifest in a number of ways in the north. Well, firstly, Cynthia speaks of a bruise she has. And I remember how troubled I was when I realized that it was finally turning the same brown color as the land turning the yellow shades of long dry grass near the front gate. My body, which I thought might belong to fire away galaxies, was in fact just a part of the earth surrounding us. We're all of the earth here. You've also got Cynthia as a redhead, but there are other connections as well with this image of the abattoir, the blood of the cattle, going into the earth. And it's almost as if the earth is what is taking out its vengeance on the world or the people around us. Yeah, there's a lot of motives in the book and it's really there's a lot of complexity. I mean, it's not a complex read as such like you can read through it pretty quickly, but there's a lot of complex ideas and the linking of nature to women was really interesting to me. And the way that women are often seen in history and philosophy and all these places as being outside of humanity, the idea that women are seen as the mystical organ, like there's a part in the book that talks about all the names of cyclones. They're always women. Do you know what I mean like it's like women are always airbrushed or the mother, not the name of themselves. So the idea that women are powerful outside of humanity or in that mystical was really important for me to ram him those ideas in the book and drive the narrative. You've also got Cynthia's system Mallory, Mallory, by the way, has, in fact, passed away, died, cruelly, but this comes up in reference to the weather. You've got El Nino and la Nina and learning that actually means little girl. The loss of Maori is almost like the forecast of a drought to come. Yeah, very purposely so. And the draft place and the drawing of queens and I used Queensland as a place because I think it's really important to write place and place that you know. Like many phenomenal Australian writers have done so successfully in the past, but I wanted to use the dryness of Queensland, which I grew up in. Up against the harsh drones up against a fertile spot of land in the furies that sits behind the abattoir and was really interested in a way that dialectic happens in the way that they speak to each other. And speak about more than just the land. Now, talking about the theories with said they're of the earth, but they are the deities of vengeance, but you don't actually go in for stereo typical vengeance. I was half expecting Cynthia to take one of the boning knives to some of the main in the Avatar, but she doesn't. And it's almost as if the earth is taking its vengeance on us. Well, I just, I really wanted to write a book where the ending again coming back to ambiguity without ending with ambiguous. What she did, you're not too sure, but I think it comes down to you as a radar. How did you come to the text? What do you think happened? What is your kind of feminism? Like, how do you sit within the book? I really wanted to engage with the reader about those talking points, which I think are really important..

"Because we can dismiss perhaps an abattoir. Until we get evidence from what's going on around us and it is so real. So real. Like I'll use fiction to the way I ride is using fiction to explore ideas that socially and culturally relevant in the world and of course that's relevant. And I'm a woman and I've grown up and it's a very working class Queensland based book and I've grown up in those spaces and have experienced those things as many of my friends have. As people in parliament, as Brittany Higgins, you know, all these people. It's actually just about listening to us. The nature of the abuse that you write about is more than just the extreme violence of rape. It's actually more problematic than just the physical violence that we see. So for example, Cynthia's mother was never treated for her postnatal depression after the birth of a Cynthia's sister, Mallory, and she begins to hear voices. The support infrastructure is not there behind it all. Correct. And I would argue that in the book, the support infrastructure is there with the furies, the women who come and support her in her living. So the idea behind the book is that, yes, there's all these structures in place that aren't supporting women exactly what you've said. But together, there is power in the collective reckoning. There is a power in us coming together to change up systems. Look at unions over the world collectives. I mean, this is how change happens. But there's an element of ambiguity then with the fury because for Cynthia's mother, these are the voices almost of madness. And that was really intentional as well. So I'm really interested in fiction in the idea of ambiguity. And that the world isn't black and white. It is gray and the ambiguous nature of life is the living of life..

"I guess for the story, boy, I think the image that I had was a lost child, a painting by Australian artist of a child standing in the middle of the Australian bush and lost and looking extremely worried about being lost. So that image stuck with me. So that propelled me to write that story. So some writers do start from an initial image. It may be a setting. They might have the whole character playing out in their head, but not knowing where they're going. But I must say that I very seldom know where I'm going with the short story. I usually will start with either phrase or sentence that really has an impact on me and I have no idea about the characters or a particular scene in a setting that really resonates with something in my past or some feeling that I associate with it. And I have to start writing in order to know where this story will take me. So I'm not, I don't plot stories. If I write longer works, I do stat plotting when I reach a point where I have to, because it depends on many things, you know, where are you going with how important is this character or can you drop that character? But with short stories, it seems a lot easier to just write by the seat of your pants as they say rather than plotted all that. For me, a lot of other people would perhaps need to have it plotted. Well, I think it's great that the short stories have been valued because Melissa Manning's smokehouse won the victims of Victorian premiers award. Now she does lingers through place, basically. That's right. That was one that I did really like. And I like the fact that it was linked and the writing star was wonderful. So that was one I was going to mention.

"Well, we're not going to explain right what to the end, because this short story has an ending, which is hopeful, and then possibly horrible, all Karen. This remarkable short story didn't win the lucrative prize, money. So which one did? Well, the winning story was called oranges by Thomas Allen. I didn't know if Thomas before, but it is a wonderful story. Yeah, and now he's got a lost boy too, but he's lost boys in a whole community of people. And that does make an interesting read. In fact, all the stories are very diverse and they probably reflect thematic requirement for the story that it is Australian life in all its diversity. So you'll find the stories in the anthologies are very diverse, which makes for wonderful reading. Talking about diversity, there's true stories in there about 18 meet. One is the cannibal who's an escaped convict, which is based on truth there. And the other one, which is really weird in Victor, is about who can make the best fake meat. Whether it's science or farmers. It's right. The styles of the stories are so different. A lot of teenagers in country towns making good or bad decisions. Defying parents, about church or discovering sex or grieving for dying, parents. And then there's other stories about the difficulties of being a parent. Yes. Especially being a responsible adult. It was, as you said, a great collection. Karen last year I read more collections of short stories than I have for a long time. So I assume that authors are choosing to write in this way, is this a genre that you read as well as Raj? I do, I've always got a novel on the go, possibly some non fiction and short stories. And if I'm not reading short stories, I intentionally go out looking for them, but you don't have to look too far these days. I'm untreated. So I see these new collections coming up, you know, mark them and I do buy a lot through other authors that I know of or hear about..

"Have you heard of a fur fe in Australian slang? It can mean a tall story based on truth. But with some extensions added, or maybe you know it as the name of an Australian manufacturing company that made movable water tanks. There is the connection between the two in World War I, soldiers would group around the water tank and swap stories. But there is another side of the furthest story, which brought Karen heenan to be published, welcome Karen. Hello, Jan. Thanks for having me. Now Karen, can you explain the connection between the furthest storytelling and you? Okay, well, the first year ward actually it's a wonderful award. It was a regional award, so a lot of short story riders may not have heard of it. Until 2020. So two years ago, the fertile world became national. So I think a lot more short story riders would have heard of it then. And hopefully there's a few people out there who are now hearing about it because it is a wonderful, wonderful award because of the fantastic prizes. $20,000 or in all. That's a really large amount for a start. So it's certainly an award worth getting your self ready for. I became aware of it because a friend of mine was shortlisted in the first time it went national in the 2020 award. And she said, oh, why don't you have a go. So I sent my story boy off in 2021. And it was shortlisted. And not any other prize is amazing, but when you're shortlisted, you're published in a very beautiful anthology. And that's not something that happens all the time. I quite like the way that the furthest family there are literature background because it was Joseph furphy, who wrote such his life back in 1903. Yes. The furphy family joined with the lion brewers who make furphy beer. And that's how the literary award came around. So Karen, you mentioned your story called boy. This boy has some characteristics that the reader might pick up on. What are they? Well, the inspiration for the story came about as a result of an actual event. So there was a real life event where a boy went missing in the Australian bush. He was out straight away from his family. It was very cold, was either end of autumn, going into winter, very cold..

But you know that a family from like eighty four we like eight like that was the heel faction of wwe was tabbed. They're right. I think he had that He was working as a baby face and he was like hogan's protege and then that led to what i think it was not the big event. What was it in toronto to remember. Was this saturday night main event. Maybe maybe on something. They usually like the war to settle the score. No that wasn't a really big shows in toronto. It's set up what they would do on tuesday nights for like a month. You know they would be these big super shows.

Twenty eighth nineteen eighty six exhibition stadium in toronto ontario canada. It was a special house. Show it drew a crowd over seventy four thousand fans which was an outdoor attendance record at the time And it was featured on vhs tape then it would later popped up in the deputy network and was headlined by hulk hogan defeating paul orndorff to retain wf world champion.

Purim Torah - Anna Solomon
"Anna solomon. Welcome to judaism unbounded. It's really great to have you. It's great to be here. So we've been doing this series on the bible and it's really exciting to be able to talk to somebody who's written a what you call exactly a biblical novel. A you know that generates itself from a biblical story. But i love to start by understanding like how you chose to write a novel based on the biblical story. You know you've written other books before wh what was the process that brought you to take this on the initial impulse really came from a children's book that i was given to read to my own kids which was sort of a children's version of the book of esther. I expected it to be simpler somehow or to kind of make the book of esther more straightforward and it turned out didn't it all in it actually raised all of the questions that had always had about the book of esther but it was like wait a second. Why was it that. I was always told that esther was really virtuous and it turns out. She's concubine a harem. And what about this fusty character. Who seems to actually have made what we would consider to be the quote virtuous choice by saying no. I won't parade make it. There were all these questions and then plot holes Hush worse who it seems by the end is sort of shocked by what heyman has been doing. This genocide earlier on is like yeah. Sure whatever you know. There's just so many there's so many sort of plot holes and inconsistencies and and my kids had all sorts of questions and it kind of made me want to go back to the book of esther itself and investigate on which is not something. I really have a lot of experienced with the local tax that that was the initial impulse that drove me back with all of these questions. You know a lot of times on this podcast. We've talked about wanting to have people. Will we call regular jews. You know people that are unauthorized. Feel empowered to take on jewish topics and jewish practices and reimagine. Them and a lot of people are intimidated to do that because they say well. I'm not a rabbi. I didn't study. How do i know how to do you know and so. I really love to talk to somebody who's done that kind of day. She's move of saying well. I'm going to really you know. Come to this. Not as somebody who's had a tremendous amount of expertise before i started and i'm curious both about the process of getting started. And did you feel intimidated in that way. And how did you get over it. And also the process of like. How much research did you do until you felt confident to the point of saying okay. Yeah i actually can write a novel about this or like you say i can contribute mid rushed to this book which you know other people say well i mean who are you after. Two thousand years totally. It's a great question. And i am absolutely a regular jew as you said i love that term and i think actually the what you said so the the research was totally tied into my getting to a point of being able to say i can do this but but not in the way. You'd expect not so much. Because i got to a point and i i felt like i knew enough it was because i got to a point and i realized that no one knows and so it gave me the freedom to go in. You know. I mean. I i began by going to my rabbi. This is in park slope brooklyn congregation. Bethelehem rachel to moaner. She's really wonderful. Insertive saying pronounced guest. Oh yeah She so great. And i said you know where do i even start and i was really open about how little i knew and she really you know is like in her office. So here's where you can even begin to go looking for interpretations translations other stories Mid rush of course. And i think for me one of the things that was very freeing in particular was was reading. The very ancient rabbis takes on The book of esther which were wild like really really wild things. That don't have any seem to have any basis in the book itself like in one hayman's daughter Heenan has a daughter first of all and she mistakes heyman for mortified or the other way round in in prayed and drops feces on his head on her father's head and it's like where does that come from in in many things like this and i think the more i read in the more outrageous at all was thought well if the ancient babylonian rabbis could do this then i guess i can. Do you know. I wanted to talk a little bit. About how your book is structured because on the one hand it's not unique to your book. There are many books that have a structure where you know chapter by chapter sort of different. I guess it's not different narrators in your case but different protagonists. I remember reading As i lay dying in school. Growing up by william faulkner which was like my first time with that and i didn't like that book i found it very disorienting but do i have grown into that style and i bring it up because i actually think you could see it as like. Oh interesting counterintuitive style for a novel or you could say when it comes to biblical text. I'll speak for myself. This is how i read it. Basically like when i'm reading a biblical text my process in my head is like For smidge i am in the text. I am like in the book of esther and then flashing to my life and that. I'm back to the book of esther and then maybe i'm to my parents. Lives are my ancestors recently but what was happening in terms of the structure of the book and in what ways might actually have something to teach us about how to approach whether it's biblical texts or any kinds of ancient texts that we work with. Yeah it's so interesting. What you say when you describe the way that you read the text in that you're going between them to your own life and two other to your ancestors etc because i think that's i think that's sort of how he read any text in a way. I mean we're always projecting ourselves into it in onto it and Whether consciously or or sort of subconsciously. And so i think in a way the weaving as you're talking about that i do in this book between these different narrators and really without between these very different times. 'cause there's the there's contemporary brooklyn there is nineteen seventies washington. Dc in ancient persia is meant to really have the effect that you're talking about that you have read which is which is to bring us closer together and to reckon with not only how much has changed but actually how much continues to be the same. In how how shaped we are by the stories that have come before us in shaped we continue to be and that we become i think then also more aware of the power of the stories. We are telling now you know to ourselves to our children to the people around us and the effect that that will have on their lives and their future. The potential for that kind of writing but also for reading is to make those connections and maybe be a little more conscious of our own powers as we as we tell our stories.

"Ever since the stepped in the ring. He's impressed me his moon. Salt is fogging beautiful. It's not say when he did it in the match it looked like boss want ads. Most it will look like they botched the the catch or he might have overshot it because his his acid legs hit the matt. Pretty fucking hard. Lengths probably stung a little bit by he his in ring psychology man is. It's it's great. He knows how to tell a story. I mean his his wrestling obviously needs some work. There there it. it's kind of like what baba says. I'm busted open. Where if you do if you can only do five things. Make sure that you do those five things to the absolute best of your ability and i feel like Magazine does that. He doesn't have a very big arsenal right now. wrestling moves. Obviously 'cause he's new by he. Does you know about three or four things in the ring and they are absolutely beautiful so he just gets it and i think if he's going to have an unwritten career I'm willing to watch where it goes. shows i said he's in me every time he steps into the room. And then you've got to think about it Like like you said a one impresses every time you get in the ring but then you hear stories about rob gronkowski now. Rob gronkowski was too scared to take a little jump. You got pat mcafee doing all kinds of shit right isn't dude who was a fucking punter in nfl versus a guy who is fucking tight end. Who is what you. But you gotta gotta remember that groggy. Kinda like kevin nash. Every if he moves rodway he gets injured. Still there's a huge thing where there's like one doesn't take as much fear right. I'm not trying to. I'm not trying to knock down mackie's fucking punting career us usual bits. Bits position in nfl. Well no because he used to people like he was a fucking linebacker. That's what i'm not trying to knock down because that's what lot think you know. You're the kick noise really so such you know so it's vici- but it's not true because that kicker magazine was a fucking beast so but you get into here and you see everything with it and you're just like may hearing a story about gronk not being able to fall ten feet took it so yet is take it and you see maggie do all these fucking things in the ring like brow by the okay. The their slight different slight difference is gronk was a fan of wrestling growing up. I wanted to be a part of it. They asked job. he's like he scared right. Like i fall from ten feet. If these guys don't catch me like sprouting. All these questions on the set in his at whereas magazine was actually like did some indy wrestling and she didn't understands that you have to trust the talent on the ground to john. So like yeah. I'm jumping from ten feet. But i know these guys got my back so here. I go like whereas gronk is probably a little less trustworthy. Because he doesn't really follow the business he was just a fan as a kid and he's a big name so they brought it whereas like pat. Meg feet clearly love wrestling right. You see and like what was even better is he. Went on his fucking podcast. The next fucking day and wore neckbrace. He out agree was still selling wargames and that is amazing. Like in a time where. It's a case abe is basically fucking dead. He still goes on his show the next day in walk in south the shit out like that. That's great that's great for the business like that. He like i said he just gets it is that was. His black magazine was really good in and be last. 'cause we didn't like everybody mashego and max. V pulled his weight and he can shiners like a a bobby heenan type manager where he doesn't russell all of the time. But you know. Heenan in his heyday as a manager would get in the ring and take bombs manager as part of like a six antagon- shit was awa when they legal. Yeah so like you could do. The same thing with mcafee is he. Homes is entering skills. I mean i don't know if pizza with the hurt business right now to kind of roll like that where you're kind of managing last loss right. So i i mean they're the cool thing about pat. Mcafee is fence. He's he's new and he seems to be fitting in the role really well of what he's doing. You storyline wise creative wise. You can do anything you want with them. Really is a class late again. He's welcome surprise in all of this when you're not expecting the thing about it. We're talking months ago about man. What's w being do this roster basically got a few people that people know and again annexed tedious surprises. You know ages which is really sad to say that they surprised us because we should just not expect a surprise anymore. They built up everyone so well they use Say we used to talk about it. All the time of the show like this show What is it normally like the takeover after wrestlemainia and they call a bunch people up and we come on are shown the following week.

Did this crickets. But the happens and that's the thing when you go online. You have to be okay with that. Not Everything is GonNa be perfect and nothing will ever be completely perfect and so it's like getting stuff out there and then you make tweaks along the way according to what people want and everything is attested. Yeah. It's interesting because testing it does two things right one it validates your idea or not, and then also it helps you produce something that is even better for whoever it's going to be four in the end the consumer, right? And so easy to test. Now it is, and that's that's a cool thing about social media. It's like from from one post on instagram or on facebook or an email you can stole easily see if people resonate with that are not right right and do you find that facebook or email like where do people engage with with you guys the most and in the various different businesses? Gosh Welfare are fitness businesses. Email has been huge facebook has been huge, and then instagram is kind of like third in line interested. Yeah and then for my personal brand, I don't really sell that much stuff yet. So instagram is really like my only channel and then I'll do some email stuff to you but I'm kind of getting all of my products finished and all that kind of stuff. So instagram is basically just a place where I can connect with people right now. Right. So you were going on some additional products, top secret products. Top. Secret. The stuff that's exciting I'm bummed I'm excited I started the daily Kelsey of just a little over a year ago because I wanted it. Yeah. Just over a year ago. What the fuck that's crazy. Well, it's it's cool like it's been. You have these other channels that I can cross, promote and everything that's been a huge piece, and then I've done a lot of collaborations and gotten some features which I'm really thankful for help able to grow but I think that. What has been really helpful. Is that P it's a message that people need and where they don't feel judged and so I think that that's been helpful to think so too. Yeah it's it's interesting. I got something funny to tell you that. So so I was on I don't know where it was on twitter something like that. So I click on his article and it takes me Fox News and there's a fucking picture of you. Walking thing that I remember was something about I'm sure you know what it is body shaming or Something like that. And maybe you can tell the story with what that was but I see. What the fuck also you just on the Fox News newspaper I don't know how that happened but. Money and yeah, it's funny because. That was a feature from shape magazine that got. Picked up by Fox and. the comments on that were hilarious because they worse. So mean, it's so funny. Oh, my goodness. The whole article was about basically how someone body shamed me through comments and that happens all the time and so basically what I do on the daily Kelsey as I will not all my post but sometimes I'll I'll take these comments that I get an into teaching topics because it's important because it's it's easy to be like Oh. Yeah. This guy's an idiot like look what he said, but think about the meaning behind it and how many people have these thoughts about other people how many people have these thoughts about themselves and their bodies and that kind of stuff so I try to twist it into something that's positive. Article of the dead and then Fox reposted it, and then all these people are body shaming me on the comments of that Fox post which was just. It was just funny. But it's great. It's great i. don't that stuff doesn't bother me anymore because it's it's just going to happen. It's comes with the territory right and I've I've learned how to spin it to create something positive event such a brilliant way to do it to take one take one of the shit posters. And then you just spin it into like a positive lesson to teach people about whatever it is. They're hitting on. Yes. That one specifically was It was just a photo of me just being me right and and the person was like, no boobs not sexy Brazilian i. No boobs. Like where did they go and my response to her was you should stop looking for them because they were never there to get you know. So just like something like that, but it's it's you know that's happens all the time and I think that a lot of people fear that they fear that criticism it's like well, it's going to happen. So you have to develop a little bit thick skin but also understand the perspective like you know Joe Sitting in his underwear on the couch like who cares what he thinks you know and also like. He probably thinking about himself he's. Feeling that great about himself. So he feels like he has to tell me that he doesn't like something about to be able to feel better zone version of vision jail on the couch somewhere down somewhere and he's he's got a wife.

"Arms look like to be able to wear a dress anyone can wear one if you want to. But also the training aspect like it's very hard to put on muscle so you shouldn't fear it. Yeah, I mean to get jacked. Arms or pop out of your dress is so hard to do and so unlikely you'll be able to achieve it even if you're trying. Yes. It really does. Yeah, that's actually a good point. You'd see away more Jack guys order rattled so. It's like it's not the case so. We'll see a little harder than people think so. Do that do you do experience? Any sort of you know in in your fitness lane like what are what kind of is in there right so you have all these different. So yeah, bodybuilding over here you have of martial arts over there. You have your big four sports over here have your plot and your skin and your endurance and your hit and that whole thing Do you typically just focus on the hit element itself in terms of sort of teaching people how to get fit and that whole thing and is there anything else around that community? That's that's sort of ansel early related. So strength training. We also teach a lot of that we had not this johns that were currently in, but our previous John's we call it strong forty five and incorporated dumbbells, and it was really amazing to help We had mostly women like ninety nine percent women in that challenge and just so many empowering transformations from people who were able to lift so much more than they thought that they ever could in the body transformations because of that were incredible. So strength training is a big piece of what we do as well. It's mostly round hit, but we also incorporates strength training as an option for people, and that's what I do in my personal. Training as well. So personal page I do that do you? What's your theory NPR's? Like. Like one right Max. And so I personally don't like to do that I. Just don't like to feel that type of sensation. I'll go like three to five every once in a while. I think it's cool to test like, wow, I have improved this much but I'm I'm not a huge one right Max kind of person I. think that's wise. Actually it reminds me the macro was conversation a little bit. Obsessed on that one number. Guilty as charged keeping track of the heart. Especially, it was at one point I was just trying to bench press as much as humanly possible on keeping track of it and keeping track than four hundred and twenty pounds and I'm like. A straight. Into your shoulder. Totally well, that's the thing I think it's progressive. Overload is super important to be able to continue to see progress right. But you don't necessarily have to only do that with one or at Max's you could do it with three to five. You can do it with ten wraps and just try to improve your ten rip Max, and that's a probably going to be a little bit safer than someone who's you know trying to do a thousand pound left or something? A little bit safer slightly I. There's also some calculators that found where if you WANNA get your one rep Max equivalent, you can go in and be like, Oh, I, did seven reps of whatever which would equal this one mash and again it comes back to goals. If your goal is to do you know crazy powerlifting is go for it but just understand that there might be consequences to that but just for the average every. Day Person I think there are a lot of other ways to do it right right and so you have all this bast fitness knowledge Dennis, and how did you think about sort of building out the business end of it and you know going online and sort of taking this sort of fitness training in real life and putting it into the digital sphere and everything that came along with that like what? What's the build out like are. You know you gotTa wordpress site with all the plug ins and the things in the yeah. The nuts and bolts of what that looks like on the back end. Well, it's gone through so many options and one of the really cool things that I admire about Dennis is that he has really dove into all the technical aspects of the business and learn everything from the ground up and so when in in two thousand thirteen.

"Know and it just becomes this thing where you can enjoy food anymore because you become. So obsessed with it interesting counting crows, it doesn't make sense to because it's such an easy number to modulate. It's like, Oh, I just you know reduced then spy ten ten, you know carbs or whatever, and that's the thing that's why it's. It's it's hard because it feels so tangible for people in a lot of times will tell me what to do just tell me what is right for me and I wanted to be catered to my body to be able to reach this goal and so that is something that feels very tangible. And you know the whole flexible dieting movement is will you can be flexible because if if it fits in your mackerels, you can't eat that pop tart or you can't eat that pizza and it's no big deal. But in practice, it becomes a lot more complicated than that. Mentally sure. Would you say that you know that is true. The flexible diet thing is true. So long as you are also doing some sort of physical fitness. I think it's it all works together I think that you, I, mean sure. I think that's important for everything but I think that Yeah. It's just the only go exists. Yeah. Yeah. They'll have to coexist. It's so fascinating the counting of macro do you think that stems from sort of this? I don't know at least from my perspective and I think a lot of young minute least. Sort of these fitness gurus at least for for guys out there and maybe a little bit different for for females I don't know but it's definitely always had this chains and veins like body building weirdness fitness competition gets shredded and dehydrate your body and like juice up with some royds in like this this sort of very weird culture of dudes wearing tiny bikinis on a stage and oil in each other applicants for me very weird thing but. I've also washed bodybuilders things that whole that whole sort of world on youtube because giving a lot of ice of advice about you know how to do bicep curls or whatever it is and fourteen year old boy you're watching this and you're like, Oh, yeah, that's what I gotTa do and. Do you. Do you feel like at least it used to be i? Think it's getting away from that now. Did that kind of. Chains and veins by building culture has sort of bread that counting crows and bread that sort of body Morphine A. Perception. At least from my perspective, I, see that it. It definitely had some interesting influences absolutely i. do think that that has had a huge influence on that whole idea and concept and movement because I know so many people who have competed and had really have really struggled with their relationship with food and exercise afterwards and. How it's really mess up there hormones and really have struggled for a lot of years because of that and I'm not saying that competing is a terrible thing and that it's not right for some people, it's a sports but I think that ninety nine percent of people can't separate that it's a sport from using it as a tool to try and look how they want to look. If someone is doing it for sport and can detach that and mental aspect of it. That's one thing. But I, don't think most people can do that and I think most people get into competing because they want to look super ripped in vain year get the dream body and it's like that's that's not going to be the best approach to do that right? That's actually interesting because. If, you consider bodybuilding only sport. You know it's one of the sports where you're actually making yourself the most unhealthy and fragile humanly possible before competing s, and whereas in other sports, you can't do that right. So if you're fighting, you have to go through training camp in you have to rehydrate and make sure that your body is equipped to go twenty five minutes punching another dude in the face and defending jokes and things up same thing is basketball and everything else like you couldn't be completely dehydrated frail or at least you wouldn't want to do that whereas in bodybuilding you you do that. You. have to. Be Able to be relevant right right. That's so fascinating I never thought of it like that. It's one of the very few sports in versed in the way that you prepare for the actual. It's hard too because in the end, it's very subjective. It comes down to what the judges opinions about your body's are, and for me I mean I would never want to do that I. so many reasons but also the last thing that I'd ever want to do is GonNa Stage just so people can judge me. It doesn't sound fun. You've sensor on but I. Do it to you. All good but man, I, can it and you just have to be able to separate like am I doing this for sport or am I doing like an mattress trying to look a certain way because you should take a very different approach if you're trying to look a certain way right so those people they have. Very sort of standardized workout that they follow right i. mean you know you always hear the bicep curls young ten things, which isn't so far from the truth. chantal you guys and gals out there doing bicep curls. This right now. But. What's your sort of personal theory on the type of workouts you do? How do you think about putting those together you know whether it's a way training or whether it's hard cardio head if it's how do you how do you think about those things? Yes. Of for my fitness brand I write a lot of hit workouts. So the population that we serve is a lot of people who don't have a ton of time to go to. The Gym, maybe they can't afford a personal trainer. Don't want a personal trainer and just want to get something in quick at home maybe with three kids running around and have twenty minutes naptime time happens or they are CEO and don't have time to do work or before they go to work. So I, do a lot of like twenty thirty minute hit workouts and program. A lot of those people and that's something that's really effective to be able to build strength and also burned body fat at the same time. So interval training is a huge piece of the business that we do and then also strength training. So I love resistance training for personal types of workouts I. Love to do you know thirty to forty minutes of weightlifting..

"Went through a healing process and after that I really realized. Okay. Fitness and being a healthy person and eating well is important. It's very different than something like a drug addiction. You don't necessarily need drugs to survive so but everyone needs to eat. So it's like when you're overcoming disorder behaviors and thoughts you have to figure out. Okay. What's this balance here where I wanna be a healthy person but it got so bad. So quickly where it had so many rules and disorder habits in place that I. I couldn't function. So after that healing process I knew that I needed to be a voice for people to create a balanced life where it's you have, you can make healthy choices.

There are so many different ways that you can create that balance and so that's the voice that I wanted to bring and so.

Let's make it work and we did we traveled the world for a little bit on a very tight budget, but it was worth. Every second wouldn't trade anything because we learned so much about ourselves and about the online space and it really just helped shape who are and our voices accompany and this has been a really awesome Jeremy. Wow, there's so much to unpack. So starting with. The disordered eating I feel like you know. This primarily happens to girls in the US at least and you know it's a concerning thing and of course, I don't have kids and you know if I had a daughter that was thinking in that way it's it's kind of a scary thing and some people listening out there probably do or have gone through something similar. What do you think the root cause of that is, is it just sort of you know a self esteem thing that's fueled by cultural implications and pressures or you know how? How does that happen? With, of course, it's a very big broad generalization rate but how how does that happen there? Are there are lots of ways and for me personally, it was the perfect storm of a lot of different things all at once. So there.
Food, Dubious Food
"In twenty eleven in Alabama law firm sued fast food chain Taco Bell for dishonest business practices claiming that Taco Bell's seasoned filling couldn't be called beef under USDA standards because they had it tested and it was only thirty five percent beef. The rest was oats and other fillers Taco bell pulled out all the stops to refute the allegation at a cost of more than three million dollars including parody of Saturday morning superhero cartoon show that they had already for reasons super delicious ingredients force fighting. Baron VAUGHN bland. My Name's Moxy. And this is your brain on facts. Researching conspiracy theories and urban legends. Always gets a little wild like. Did you know that people are die hard? Tim Hortons fans because the Canadian version of Dunkin donuts spikes their coffee with highly addictive nicotine. Of course they don't but that doesn't stop people from believing. It will be skipping over. Stories like the fingertip and Wendy's Chili. That was a failed extortion attempt or the mouse in the mountain dew which PepsiCo defended themselves against by proving that the mouse would have dissolved. Let's start with the biggest name and fast food. The Mac Daddy if you will. Mcdonald's easily holds the records for the most urban legends and conspiracy yarns spun around a restaurant. The topic has its own wikipedia. Page and these. Well predate the unduplicated experiment. That was Morgan. Spurlock super size me listeners. Of a certain demographic may remember the Jimbo. You deserve a break today reaching them about the same time as the rumor that McDonald's stretched their hamburger meat out with Nice. Cheap ground up worms. If you've been online for more than a few minutes. In the past decade he will have seen a picture of a factory machine extracting fat tube of Pink Mush or pink slime as the caption frames. It say hello to mechanically separated chicken. It's all fast food. Chicken is made from things like chicken. Nuggets patties also. The process frozen chicken in the stores is made from it. Basically the entire chicken is smashed and pressed recieve bones is guts. All it comes out looking like this and there's more because it's crawling with bacteria it'll be washed ammonia soaked in it actually then because it tastes gross. It'll be re flavored artificially then because it's weirdly pink it'll be died with artificial color but hey at least it tastes good right. There are little bits they are that are nearly true mechanically separated meat is a staple ingredient in ready made frozen and fast foods but it's made from meat cuts not whole carcasses while beef producers commonly treat meat products with small amounts of ammonium side as an anti microbial agent and assessing in a high volume facility meat and poultry processors. Don't soak the meat in ammonia. They treat it with the gas apart from the included items being wrong. There are a lot of things that are missing. Like the fact that McDonald's stopped using mechanically separated chicken in two thousand and three mechanically separated. Beef was banned in two thousand four due to concerns about Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy Aka mad cow disease and the pink. Slime in the picture is probably what one beef industry magazine writer called. Ammonium treated lean beef trimmings not even chicken at all another glaring omission in the claim. There is nothing in the picture to identify that as a McDonald's facility. Mcdonald's went on the defensive showing how nuggets were actually made and that the mushed up chicken while not especially pleasing to the eye at no point looks like pink. Slime washed down those nuggets with a milkshake. Well there's no milk in that milkshake. There's no dairy of any kind. That's why the menu says shakes and not milkshakes. At least that's the rumor. What are they used instead to make it so creamy pureed cow eyeballs or maybe a little microscopic styrofoam balls for filler or lard or potatoes or seaweed or ground up feathers there are strict definitions food labelling and while. Mcdonald's shakes can't be labeled milkshakes in some areas because they don't contain straight up milk they do contain milk via the soft serve ice cream that's used to make them and they don't contain any of the other things save one. Their ice cream is made from milk. Sugar cream of Corn Syrup and various common preservatives and thinners McDonald's self-serve does contain one item from the Urban Legend List Seaweed specifically encourage Heenan. A safe natural common ingredient bonus. Fact if your food or drink is pink or red in color. Check The label for coaching. Neil a type of beetle whose ground up bodies have been used as a food color for centuries. I'm not suggesting to avoid it unless you're trying to keep kosher. I just think it's interesting. It's probably only listed as natural color. Anyway say you bought more food than you're able to eat in one sitting and you left the rest on the counter for a few weeks. Hey we all get busy. Thanks to all the artificial ingredients in manmade chemicals in boldface defiance of the natural order of things that McDonald's food won't rot. Lots of people have made videos showing the food remaining virtually unchanged after days and even weeks. This is a little bit true but mostly false in case any specify that and not for the reasons you think according to Dr Keith Warner Program Director at the University of Gulf's Department of Food Science and Quality Assurance essentially the microbes. That cause rotting are a lot like ourselves in that they need water nutrients warmth and timed grow. If we take one or more of those elements away then. Microbes cannot grow and spoil food in the example of the McDonald's hamburger. The patty loses water in the form of steam during cooking the BUN is made out of bread and toasting it reduces the amount of moisture this means that after preparation hamburger is fairly dry. When left out open in a room? There's further water loss as the humidity within most buildings is around forty percent so in the absence of moisture or high humidity. The Burger simply dries out rather than rots so no moisture no rot. It's the inverse of the reason. Why the bathroom is the only room in your house where you're locked in an eternal struggle with microbes like mold and mildew speaking of moisture. Who could use a tasty beverage right about now? How about a new COQ? Don't know what I'm talking about. That means one of two things. You're under the age of thirty or the most devious and ingenious marketing effort of all time succeeded or failed either way. The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. Set would want you to know. That coke created new coq to cover the switch from sugar to corn Syrup to mask the removal of the last remaining coca derivatives or because people would hate it and demand more of what had been renamed co Classic. Take your pick. Pepsi had an effective ad campaign with the Pepsi. Challenge a blind taste test where lifelong coke fans found out they actually preferred the taste of Pepsi. Coke replicated the challenge in private and found the same thing. So in nineteen eighty-five they reformulated coke to be sweeter and put it out as new coq hip trendy with it and now including TV spots with the supposedly CGI. Max Headroom. You can hear more about in episode ninety six. Do not adjust your set. People hated new COQ. The heated the very idea of coping changed. There were letter writing campaigns thousands of calls a day and people. Hoarding original coke. Were boycotting the brand altogether independent bottlers even sued Coca Cola for lost revenue. It was all over the news all the late night talk shows. You couldn't buy that much publicity for. Could you? People began to speculate that. Coca-cola had launched new coq knowing that people would hate it that it would make people want to buy original coke and that everyone would be talking about it. They created it to fail. This isn't as far fetched a notion as you might think a decade or so later when Pepsi Launched Crystal Pepsi. Can you hear that Van Hagar Song Coke Launch? Crystal Tab? Tab was the first Diet Soda and even though Crystal Pepsi wasn't Diet People inflated the two and Crystal Pepsi went out faster than Jenkins and plastic choker necklaces as for the new coq debacle being a deliberate marketing ploy then company president. Donald Cove said some. Cynics will say that we planned the whole thing. The truth is we're not that dumb and we're not that Smart

"Dive on now. I feel like you need no introduction but i feel like let's do it like give me marie forleo at a glimpse yes well. You know we'll take it back for anyone listening. If we've never met before i like going back to the old days of when i popped out of college and was super excited about doing something i was hoping is going to be meaningful in the world and that would allow me freedom and to build financial oh freedom and all those things i think many of a stream of and i found myself on the floor of the new york stock exchange wall street and i was super excited john because i'm a person who has a lot of energy and and there is literally no physical seats on the floor. They have these things that pop out from the wall. They're like fold up seats but there's no real seats and i was pumped to be there. I was grateful to be there. I grew up in a working class family on the first person in my family to ever go to college. That was a really big deal and to have this job on wall street was like a._m. Proud i. I have a steady paycheck. I have health benefits like this is good and i'm not gonna lie. I was always someone who is very ambitious. I experienced a lot of pain heenan my childhood specifically around money and i saw how much pain the lack of it caused and i saw my mom go through so much feeling so powerless us around money and you know quite frankly i saw that many moms and adult women when i was growing up and so i had made a pact to myself that when i became an adult i wanted to do ever ever was possible to earn a lot of money not because i care about nice shoes or a lot of materialism. That's really that's not my life. I love experiences and i also left taking care of. If people like it's part of my nature and i wanted to be able to take care of others so at this wall street job guys around me were earning like a jillion dollars a year more money then i could have ever conceived ub growing up yet there is a big problem most of them while they seemed rich and successful and powerful on the outside seemed spiritually bankrupt one way i could see that was used to pine for these like two weeks of vacation that they had every year that that was the only thing they we had to look forward to and then of course the lifestyle of wall street was very typical of what we see you know back in the ninety s.

It was ninety nine point nine percent men gender inequality and gender balance was insane. I was trying so hard to be taken seriously. I've always had very long hair but on wall street. I actually had a pixie cut. I cut off all my hair in an effort to be taken seriously. I just wind fine my spot in this world so cut to six months into that job. I started hearing this little still small voice inside that was like marie. This isn't worse must obey. This isn't what you're meant to do. You need to get out of here and that was hard to hear because that little voice was not telling me what else i was supposed supposed to do and i tried to ignore it because again. It felt wildly irresponsible. I i don't again comparable wealthy family. I didn't have a trust fund. I was tens of thousands of dollars in debt after college. Delay quitting steady job without having a backup plan seemed insane right not what i was going to do but got to the point where i could no longer ignore that voice in one day on the floor. I had what i can only describe to be some what of a mild panic annika tack. You know. I'm walking around. I started getting dizzy. I had trouble breathing. I felt like really nauseated like i was going to throw up and told my bosses like had to get out and go grab a cup of coffee thirty instead of getting the caffeine i made a beeline to the nearest church i had grown up in a catholic household and i went to a catholic university so i was kind of trained to new crisis. Ask god for help some kind of guidance. I'm sitting on the steps trinity church bawling my eyes out in my little kind of you know they give be these like dark blue blazers that you are in the floor exchange miscarriage running down my face and the first one i got was to call my dad which made sense because i was so just i. I felt so guilty to be honest with you because i knew how much he busted his ass to put me through school that i didn't want to be a disappointment so i opened my flip phone. If anyone remembers those call my pops and was just bawling my face out. I finally took a breath to catch my breath. He interrupted. He said ray com now. Now you're fine. He's like you've worked since you were nine years old. I am not worried about you keeping a roof over your head or paying your bills look. You're gonna work for the next forty forty or fifty years of your life. You have got to find something you love and if this isn't it and you're getting yourself this second this upset then you gotta adequate and you've got to do whatever it takes to find something you love and don't stop looking until you find it and so that was kind of my first permission slip you you get the f out of there but you know. I honestly had no clue how to find something. I loved and there's even a skeptical part of my brain. That was like what does that mean somewhere deep in my soul. I knew it was right so i went on a bit of an odyssey to try and find out who i was and my only clues were that i loved creativity. I was highly the creative. I thought i was going to be either an animator for disney or a painter or fashion designer and i loved business and marketing. My dad was an entrepreneur in a small business owner and i got to see him operate his small printing business growing up so i thought magazine publishing might be the place for me right. There's like the the editorial side and there's the ad side commerce business art all of it and so. I got a job at gourmet magazine in their ad sales department. I was like okay. This is going. It'll be and it's gonna be awesome right now. In terms of the landscape there was many more women. My boss was a woman. The publisher of the magazine was a woman. They were all amazing. I'm like like this is wonderful. I love to eat it was gourmet by my little cubicle was next to the test kitchen so the chefs would be like hey. We're trying out this new recipe. Do you want to chase yeah. That's right. I was like who has to like this on your police. Bring the snacks but the same thing happened about six months. I started hearing that voice jonah voice right. This isn't who you're supposed to be and then i started to really feel a sense sense of panic because i watched my peer group around me. They were all starting to get promotions. They were all kind of getting this foothold in their life and here i was wanting to quit. Quit my job yen so i thought to myself okay. Wall street was very numbers focused. The ad sales side of a magazine is very numbers focused. Maybe i have gone too far on that nightside. Maybe i need to really strengthen my creativity. What if i'm supposed to be on the editorial side so hustled my buns off. I got a position as a fashion assistant at mademoiselle and i was like okay. This is gotta be at gona photo shoots fashion shows in the new product lines you know working with layouts like all these highly creative things and when she now at six months in same thing started happening at and i have to be honest here because i started started to feel really broken you know i had graduated the valedictorian of my class and i'm a very hard worker and couldn't square. How can i be this committed to doing really good work and this freaking clueless about who i am in this world like why does nothing fit and so when i was at that the job i was on the internet one day probably when i shouldn't have been and i stumbled upon what was a new profession at the time now you gotta get guys. This is nineteen ninety nine like nine hundred ninety nine. It was talking about this new profession called coaching which at that point no one had ever heard of before jenna when i read this article all about people that had these coaching businesses about how it was so focused on co creating strategies with people it was very positive. It was very forward moving. It sounded really exciting. It was as though something inside of my heart broke open. It was like the clouds parted and little cherubs. We're we're seeing like little sunbeam's. Shooting out of there is right into my heart and something about it just felt so right. However my very critical mind signed immediately stepped in. Who do you think you are who the hell is gonna hire a twenty-three-year-old life coach. You haven't even lift life yet. You can't even keep a job for more than six months your ten thousand dollars in debt. You have nothing to offer anyone. This is nuts. This is crazy by the way how cheesy is a term life coach which so that's where i was but i couldn't deny that this was the right thing i had ever felt in terms of calling and so i signed up for three year coach training program with coach university and i continue to work at the magazine during the day can i was my paycheck. That's how things went fast forward a few months. I got a call all from the h._r. Department at conde nast publications. They had a promotion for me. It was an opportunity at folk more money a lot more prestige staying on that steady paycheck health benefits train and that jenna was my work on the road a on the safe path or do i do this weird thing called life life coaching which no one has ever heard of i think as cheesy as hell but sounds amusing and so i quit my job and i went back to bartending in waiting tables else and decided to start my business at twenty three so what has happened since twenty three because has happened and i'm juiced just giggling as you're talking because i feel like every listener can relate to these voices the one that is like who do you think you are in the one that is like you you were made for this and like it's just this constant conversation in our heads in if if the world saw the conversations that you're having in our heads we would look like geico

Palestinians trapped in coercive environment, says UN rights official
"This is loose. Graffiti of UN news, many Palestinians, living under his rarely occupation suffer from a course of environment were settlements expansion has made people's lives. So unbearable that they feel pressured to move according to a top u n official there James Heenan, head of the UN human rights office in the occupied Palestinian territory said that permits for building in the West Bank were almost non-existent now for Palestinians, speaking to Reema Bauza of UN news in Jerusalem. Mr. Heenan explains the challenges Palestinians routinely face today in the West Bank and east Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip was buying and then he's truce Lamon Gaza will have their own different types of human rights challenges. But some of the challenges of calling across the whole area. One is use of force another is freedom of movement. Another is the way in which space society and human rights defenders dramatically, and if we talked specifically about Gaza, what are the issues that were you the most widely the buzz is really hope for the population Gazans feel and are under pressure from old photos at the moment, they are suffering from an eleven year blockade and closures imposed by Israel. They suffering essentially also under the split between the West Bank and Gaza, the political split and the the factor thirties in Gaza, Mike loss, very hard for a number of people, including human rights defenders for us. The concern for Gaza is all about. Allowing people to have an adequate standard of living, which is a human rod under the ICCPR international could covenant uncivil political rights and towards that end. The UN is working tool to humanitarian response to what's going on in Gaza. Ultimately, of course, it's a political problem humanitarian, what are the other human rights challenges specific to the West Bank and east Jerusalem at the moment, the biggest human rods challenges are generated by settlements the expansion of settlements. And we produced two reports a year on this. In and of itself creates a number of human rights violations. So for example, severance themselves are violations of international, we know that. But when you establish a settlement in areas c in the West Bank, he generally brings populations into proximity brings a settlers into proximity with the local Palestinians, and we know that that proximity generates things like settle of items the take over of land blocking the freedom of movement. The Palestinians nearby things like the blocking of access to services for Palestinians nearby. So the settlement enterprises people call it doesn't just have a problem with the Silverton themselves, but the impact on human rights. The biggest thing that's happening. Most recently is what we call the environment where you have a desire to move, Tulsa and communities for the purposes of settlement expansion or creation. What's happened at the long pass? I communities would have just been forcibly moved. Now. What's happening is those communities are put on the enormous pressure. So feel I have no choice but to move, and that's what we call. The course environment. This comes from the jury's prudence of you hate Trump troubles on the former Yugoslavia this idea that you can make lifestyle bearable for people through combination factors. They feel they have to. So for example, if you have a community near settlement sky to expand they can be subject to settle labontes. They can be subject to demolitions. So they cannot build in the West Bank term ability in the West Bank. But I'll sit ins are almost nonexistent. So any expansion they come undertake the young people get married. They can't start the village because there's no it to live. They can't expect access to services are blocked a firing zone can be declared by military nearby, which will mean that they can't access they land. And it can also mean that there is actual live far near the village which is dangerous last year. We had a sixteen year old boy killed by unexploded ordinance of this in the field. A combination of all of these factors all of which are human rights violations as well. Jen at their base makes life extremely difficult for people, and you see that people are leaving because of this. We know type in the West Bank of people on the huge amount of pressure to leave, and we know cases in Hebron where families of decided to move. Now each case has to be looked at all it's merits businesses, very serious mental. And the thing is Palestinians have a very very strong resilience. So they don't move easily. But it doesn't mean that the pressure is not there for them to move. And we're concerned I'm concerned that saw these communities will feel they have to move at some point. We'll talk about the courts environment. What does your office do on that issue? We have not see role an illegal role. Yeah. I think the office has been instrumental in bringing together this idea and making sure that there's a common understanding about what environments based on the jurisprudence of into. National tribunals, we track the quiz environment that patents to see what's happening through the violence. Not just the instances of settler violence. But also, the trends, and we analyze trends, and we publish them. We are mandated by the UN to be public about these things. What is the final message would like to express? I think the involvement globally. Is not supportive of human rights to seem to be. Since some places ideology, the pasta or system in the past. And you hear a lot said about that these days, but as Kofi man once said, it's not it's not people who so human rights is relevant. It's usually governments he said even real and for us. It's more relevant than ever that not just our office. But everyone stands up for human rights because the car is very very worrying.
