"And <Speech_Female> <Silence> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> so <Speech_Female> we have to return to our sense <Speech_Female> of critical inquiry <Speech_Female> and ask ourselves, <Silence> what do we want <SpeakerChange> out of <Speech_Female> vacation? <Speech_Female> Is vacation <Speech_Female> escape? Is it to learn <Speech_Female> new things as a <Speech_Female> travel, the family <Speech_Female> is to go away by yourself? <Speech_Female> And once <Speech_Female> you ask <SpeakerChange> those <Speech_Female> questions, <Speech_Female> you really engage <Speech_Female> because Siri can't <Speech_Female> answer to get back to <Speech_Female> our original point, Siri <Speech_Female> can't tell you where to go <Speech_Female> on vacation. <Speech_Female> Because Siri <Speech_Female> doesn't really know who you <Speech_Female> are. Google <Speech_Female> doesn't know who you are. Google can tell you if you <Speech_Female> say, well, <SpeakerChange> I <Speech_Female> want to go on vacation <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> in the Caribbean <Speech_Female> and be in <Speech_Female> a place <Speech_Female> with fewer than a thousand <Speech_Female> people. They <Speech_Female> can help you with that. <Speech_Female> But the hard <Speech_Female> questions you have to <Speech_Female> ask yourself <Speech_Female> and to break it down into <Speech_Female> pieces, ask yourself, <Speech_Female> what are you looking for <Speech_Female> in vacation? How <Speech_Female> long do you want to be gone? <Speech_Female> Do you want to see other <Speech_Female> people? And these <Speech_Female> are questions you can answer. <Speech_Female> But it takes <Speech_Female> time, and to <Speech_Female> go back to Frank Bruni, <Speech_Female> you need <Speech_Female> the pause because <Speech_Female> wisdom has to find its <Speech_Female> wings. If you're going to invest <Speech_Female> all that time <Speech_Female> and money in a vacation, <Speech_Female> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> you want to make the right decision. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> And that Bruni quote <Speech_Male> is fantastic in <Speech_Male> relation to meditation as <Speech_Male> well. Isn't it? <Speech_Male> Quite literally <Speech_Male> connected. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> to wrap everything <Speech_Male> together <Speech_Male> and tie it all up, <Speech_Male> how can one <Speech_Male> put all this practices <Speech_Male> into <Speech_Male> a fluid <Speech_Male> and organic <Speech_Male> way. So they <Speech_Male> actually can use <Speech_Male> them in their life as opposed <Speech_Male> to kind of <Speech_Male> downloading a bunch of <Speech_Male> information <Speech_Male> and bullet points <Speech_Male> and then sort of forgetting <Speech_Male> them all. How can someone <Speech_Male> really <SpeakerChange> make this work <Speech_Female> for them? <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> You know, <Speech_Female> I talk about things <Speech_Female> that I used <Speech_Female> to pivot when <Speech_Female> COVID hit. <Speech_Female> And <Silence> again, to <SpeakerChange> the pause, <Speech_Male> stop, <Silence> look, <Silence> <SpeakerChange> and <Speech_Female> listen. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> Stop, look, <Speech_Female> and listen, when you're <Speech_Female> faced with a problem, you have to <Speech_Female> stop. <Speech_Female> You have to look at the <Speech_Female> problem. And <Speech_Female> you have to listen to yourself <Speech_Female> and others to <Speech_Female> come up with a solution, <Speech_Female> and it's the <Speech_Female> same template <Speech_Female> I use when you're looking at <Silence> a work of art. <Speech_Female> Stop, <Speech_Female> look at the work of <Speech_Female> art, listen <Speech_Female> to your own reactions <Speech_Female> and listen to what <Speech_Female> other people are saying <Speech_Female> who are also <Speech_Female> standing in front of the <Speech_Female> work of art. And one of <Speech_Female> the kids I <Speech_Female> was telling them about stopping <Speech_Female> looking and listen, he said, <Speech_Female> what about listening to <Speech_Female> the audio guide? <Speech_Female> I said, you know what?

"I don't know what to do. Let me seek someone else's counsel. And if someone says to you, you know, we just had hot cocoa this afternoon, and we had ice cream. Maybe you're not that hungry. Maybe you should just get the salad. And all of a sudden, the salad makes sense to you and you would have never thought about it in terms of what you had just eaten. All of a sudden, multiple perspectives can help you make your own decision. And the music that's to my ears to this day, I've been doing this for 20 years, is when I overhear someone say in the midst of one of my classes or talking about the book they say, you know, I would have never thought of that. I would have never thought of that. Imagine that and quite selfishly just getting other perspectives, even if you make the same decision that you would have initially, you've consulted other people. You already have a broader vision in making the decision. Wonderful, you have a triangulation of information is so so viable. Yes. And we forget about that. You know what? Again, my high school principles used to say, it's not all about you. Yeah, oftentimes it's not about you at all. And that's really humbling when I tell people, it's not about you at all. So what's the best way to kind of a system to define a problem and set some parameters before approaching it? I think working backwards, you know, we talk it out. And you think about all the things that go into the problem. And I put it to the artist's process. The prep, the draft and the exhibit. How do you prep to make a painting? You gather all your materials, you think about the concept. You don't just do it overnight. You decide what materials you want to use. You want you decide what materials are best go to express what you want to express..

"It's really very important. That doesn't mean that you can't try new things. You know, people say, well, I hate all things with papaya, okay? Fine. You can hate things with papaya. But when you go to Thai restaurant and they serve papaya salad with an underwrite papaya in a way that you've never tasted it before, just leave the door open. There's always room to go back and say, you know what? I hate papaya. But you can try something new. So I think that you're dislikes can lay down parameters for you and it's very important. But, you know, they should be those parameters should not be drawn in stone. So earlier you were talking about pattern recognition and the value of that and that does kind of safeguard us from getting too caught up in our assumptions about things and kind of believing that the narrative story in our mind is quote unquote reality and the truth at all times and will give us a broader perspective of what's going on. What's a good method for people to begin to recognize their assumptions? I think it sounds easy to say, but, you know, we act on our assumptions all the time. And what I tell people is I'm giving you permission. I'm not telling you that you have to change your assumptions. All I want to do is make you aware of them. That's all I can do. And once you're aware of them, and you start thinking, it's like things that come onto your windshield in the car. You can't look away from them. And so if you start to be aware of one of your assumptions and then start asking yourself, you know, am I making this decision based on an assumption? The example I'll give you is I hang two portraits in my book and in the class, one is of George Washington and one is Abraham Lincoln. And I say, well, none of you in the room are none of you readers have ever lived under the administration of these two men..

"And it's really filling too. It is. And that's what was at the Arc de Triomphe, you know, Christoph was very much there, and everybody felt it and everybody reveled in it. And again, this is going to sound very privileged. I was able to go to the top of the Arc de Triomphe. I was able to have access to the roof and to see Paris, not only from the top of the monument, but as it was draped from the top with the silver fabric and the red ropes. And it's just a view I'll never forget. And I wanted to bring it home with me to say, you know, there's always another view, even there's really nothing that's immutable. I mean, here we have the Arc de Triomphe and it was wrapped in a big blanket and I was able to see Paris through that big blanket and it just when I brought it home, I thought, you know, there's nothing that can't be changed by looking at it differently. Problems included. So it really the trip had a really profound effect on me. Yeah, that's beautiful. That's true. I know I was fortunate enough to see the Arctic tramp as well in person. And it's just so beefy and massive as it is. You know, it kind of doesn't look that big in photographs or whatever, but when you're actually there, it's quite the object and to have that be transformed into this incredible perceptual work of art. I can't imagine how that would be to say. Yeah, and I stayed around the corner so that I saw morning noon and night, and I saw it in The Rain and I saw it dismantled and I documented it the whole time because it was just really it was stunning. I know my Friends are probably tired. I've been talking about it since it got home. Since I got home, but it's going to be with me for a while..

"If you looked at him, you wouldn't think he was an art guy. Let's put it that way. And he said to me, you know what, lady? You kept telling me you were going to take me out of my box, take me out of my box. He said, you took me so far out of my box. I know what to look for now that I go back in. Wonderful. And that's really all I aspire to is to take people out so when they go back in, they're going to see things differently. Yeah, and I don't think that that's a platitude that you shared at all. I think that's actually wisdom. You know, it's the things feel uncomfortable and those type of spaces because you're literally you don't have the brain slots to take in the information. So it's kind of like the same feeling one would get from being scared of the dark. It's like, well, it's because it's the unknown. It's that, but it's just a perceptual subjective understanding of what is known. And once you get in you play in that threshold, which is kind of like the middle of the street, you can actually see what's going on in someone else's yard. But it's dangerous to play in the street. Dangerous, but the rewards are pretty cool because you don't get to go there very often. That's right. That's right. I've mentioned this story probably a handful of times on the podcast, but I'm going to tell you again just because I think you would really appreciate it. Something I loved, I heard David Bowie say one time was that he knew he was innovating. And he always this feeling was really important to him is that whenever he was working on a new project a new record or whatever, that he wanted to feel specific way and when he felt this way, he knew he was really getting some more new. And he described it as if you walked from the beach into the water and he walked out just far enough that your feet were barely barely touching the ground and the water was kind of moving you a little bit. You know, that feeling of like, I have a toe tap in the ground, but I'm uncomfortable because I'm kind of being controlled by the ocean. He's like, that's the feeling I always look for. And I've always loved that. You don't know me at all, but I can't believe you just touched on this. My happiest place in the whole world is to be in the ocean. Just past where the waves break..

"We walk the dog. We take kids to school, we go out for coffee and a croissant, whatever we do. And what I ask people to do is every day that you begin your routine again. Seek out something you didn't notice the day before. Seek out something you didn't see the day before. And make a mental note of it. And if you do it every day, it becomes almost a habit that you start looking for things that are not only that aren't obvious, but that you may have missed before. And what it does is it trains your brain to think to see in another way and I believe that not only does it augment your self awareness, oh, I never noticed that before. I never realized that. I never knew that I like that. And then when you need those skills to problem solve or deal with a difficult situation, you have them at the ready. And the example that I'll give you is I wrote a short piece when I came back from Paris. It was very sad to me that everybody stopped kissing in Paris. You know, everyone kisses. Both cheeks, if they really know you, they kiss three times, and everybody stopped kissing. And when I was standing in front of Christoph's arc, for some reason, it inspired people to kiss again. They were laughing and they were kissing each other and it's as if in his posthumous spirit. He gave people permission to kiss. And as I was walking this morning, to go get a cup of coffee, there's a little preschool right near my apartment. And I noticed COVID or no COVID, everybody was they were kissing their children goodbye. Even with the masks, they were all kissing, and I just never noticed that before. But having seen this in Paris, I brought it home with me and I saw these parents letting their kids go and kissing them goodbye..

"And at some point, we're going to reach an impasse and Google just isn't going to be able to answer the question and there will be no YouTube video on how to deal with some deeply emotional problems. You really must confront, you know, if your child is suicidal or, you know, you're dealing with something that Google just can't begin to wrap its technical mind around what's happening in your life. So I want to give people the tools and they're really readily accessible. Yeah, it's amazing. The story you mentioned really resonated with me because this is some years ago, but I went to a doctor. I don't remember what it was about, but and then after I explained the symptoms and et cetera with what I thought was clarity and so on, they looked at me and said, okay, well, what do you want to do about it? Thanks, Doc. And I told him I said, well, I'd like to speak to someone that went to medical school. And take their advice. That's kind of why I'm here, you know? I'm not laughing at your situation. I just think that when a doctor says, well, what do you want to do? Yeah. Well, on the flip side of that, and again, this is there is still humanity in medicine. I'm happy to report. I am a cancer survivor. Gratefully. And I made the decision 7 years ago that when the day came that I wasn't taking chemo, I was going to make it a great day. That was just my promise to myself because chemo days can be so miserable that I said, if this is ever, if I'm alive and this is gone, I'm going to make the effort to make it a great day. And I remember when I got my diagnosis and I sat in the doctor's office, there was no choice. There was no, you know, well, you could do this or we could do this..

"And I think it would be really, really effective for homicide detectives to come to the art museum. And you can imagine that went over like a lead balloon. Yeah. And so they transferred me 7 times and I landed with a deputy commissioner who had vision and forethought. And he said to me, miss Herman, if this is so visual, why are we talking on the phone? Why aren't we face to face in front of the paintings? And so he came with his colleagues in 6 months later, every newly promoted captain in New York had to take this class. Wow, that's amazing. That's amazing. Now, you know, one of the things that you, of course, touch on in your new book is just the general erosion of people's problem solving skills. What do you think is causing that? I think there are multiple causes. I think Siri is a big problem. I think Google is a big problem. You know, I'm not saying that those aren't useful things, but what it does when we type in a question to Google, or we look something up, it diminishes our own ability to think critically about all the nuances of the situation where in Google doesn't know where we are. I mean, it may know where we are physically, but it doesn't know what's happening in our brain. So by typing something into Google, you're sort of all those nuances and details and things that should be factoring into your problem solving are deadened. And so I think technology while it certainly adds to our problem solving ability on some level, it also dampens it. And I think that we need to strike a balance between how we use technology and how we continue to develop our critical thinking skills because as we've all seen problems aren't going to go away. And, you know, whenever we've had blackouts or a loss of power or lose your phone, people panic, and you still have to be able to solve problems when that happens..

"It's not to say that they weren't troublesome for him, but he had to work around them and make sure that when his project went up and more importantly, when it came down, that it left no environmental footprint. That's really cool. That's great to hear. I've been able to research that before. He did. And it was really, I mean, it was one of the reasons for so many of the delays because he had to make sure that this was not going to damage the environment, not only in the installation, but in the dismantling as well. And the situation with the birds, the police were complaining to me because I worked with the French national police and they said, you know, crystal worried about the birds, but our security cameras came down and he didn't worry about that. That was not a problem. That's hilarious. That's hilarious. All is well in Paris. As always, as always. So I would love to talk to you about just art in general for an entire hour. But I'd love to talk about your book. So first off, would you mind sharing just kind of a quick overview of your last project called the art perception? Sure. Actually, my ongoing work, the training that I do for people, the program is called the art of perception. My last book that was published in 2016 is called visual intelligence. And that was that laid the foundation for this book. The idea behind visual intelligence was to write about how I was teaching people across the professional spectrum how looking at art could help improve their observation perception and communication skills and how analyzing works of art individually and collectively could help an augment their engagement with the world and augment their visual intelligence. And now this book, 5 years later, came about because publisher said to me, why are all these people still coming to you? You know, why you training shot control trauma nurses and navy seals and officials from NATO? Why are they coming to you? And I had to think about that..

"Book, by the way. Thank you. Yeah, it's a really brilliant concept. Thank you. I have to tell you writing a book is like having a child, you know, you put something out there and you hope it'll do some good in the world. But I'm going through contractions right now. You know, they want to start it. So it's always nice to hear from some of the first readers because I'm you know, I'm so deep in the weeds with the book. It's really lovely to hear when somebody from the outside has read it. Good, good. I'm glad that you feel that, you know, I know that feeling that you're talking about that weird vulnerability so well, just releasing things, you know, a lot of my life. And it's an interesting process. I think since you're someone who has such a astute understanding of art and the creative process, get this, I always feel like creating the thing, of course, is this manifestation of your own subjective perception, and that's what art is is saying the world in a different way. And then somehow taking a snapshot of your subjective reality and communicating it through a medium so that others can see the thing. That they couldn't see, right? That's a perfect description that that's a really, really good description because it's something that's so ingrained in you and so subjective and you want others to experience it. Totally, totally. But in that, comes that's a part of your capital as self your ego that you're sharing and when it's still within you, it's protected and it's safe, but the second you put that into the object or the medium, and it becomes detached in its own thing, then you like pushing it into the forest. And it's all on its own. And it's on its own and you can't nurture it anymore and I'm going to say something and I hope this doesn't sound pretentious. I just came back from Paris and the reason I went to Paris is because I wrote about Christo in the book, and he died this past year and his last design, the one that he designed and worked on was going to go up in Paris. He wrapped the Arc de Triomphe for I should say, his studio wrapped the Arc de Triomphe. And it was his last work and I wanted to see it with my own eyes. So I went to Paris to see it. And I was thinking about what you just said. Here is Christo's last cumulative, his big last masterpiece on the Arctic triumph and he wasn't there to see it. But I stood for hours and watched other people engage with it. And it was just an experience I will never forget. It was joyous. And I thought somehow the spirit has to read him that he knows what he has created here. Yeah, that's beautiful. He went and saw that. I've always found drunkards work really fast. I think one of the most fun stories that's in my mind about that is surely you're familiar with ray Johnson. Sure. Story of Jiang Christo and ray Johnson, of course, being kind of like, I don't know, playing with each other a little bit, you know? And the little competition, a little bit of good fun. And so I think that I believe that ray wanted one of Christo's packages when he was doing those packages back in the 70s. And they were going back and forth, talking about buying one, trading art and so on and so on and so on. So finally, kreese just said, okay, I'm going to send you one, and he sent it over. So ray was hanging out in his department, he got a box, a package was delivered. He opened it up and there's note inside and said, you just ruined.
Dr Michael Guillen: Science Shows That Seeing Is Not Believing
"That's what we're talking about right now with dr michael gillen. The book is believing is seeing. So you're saying that we we meaning you and others were observing. The spin of certain galaxies ended implied that there was a lot more matter and mass. Then we could see and so what we infer from that observation so we inferred that there must be some things some substance within that galaxy that is causing it to spin so fast that we can't see it's an invisible form of stuff and that's all we called it. When i was a grad student but then as i in the years afterwards we came to call it dark matter. So that's what we call the missing mass that. Where is this mass. That's causing the galaxy galaxy to spin so fast and then beyond that we discovered that the universe is actually not only expanding but it's accelerating out words. That was huge. And i actually covered that when i was at. Abc news because a friend of mine at harvard was involved in that discovery. And we call that dark matter the bottom line just just to come back to the point i was making is that when i learned as a young scientists that most of the universe is invisible and we now believe ninety five percent of the observable universe is invisible to us. I could no longer live by the motto. Seeing is believing because here was science now demanding that i believe in a universe most of which i could not see so i had to ditch. Seeing is believing in that launched me on a very long. Herman has like journey you know. Tormented intellectual sequel has like journey. I literally make fun of. Herman has in the introduction to my new book is areas in bed. I'm not even joking. I'm going to send you a copy when we get off the air. I gotta send you a copy. But so what you're saying. I really you know. I i want to be serious and let the audience know that science or let's say materialists people who are scientistic who insist. There's no such thing as anything except what we can detect with our five senses anything beyond the realm of quote unquote science cannot exist. They make this statement now. That is a statement of faith. It's preposterous but you're telling me oh by the way even science contradicts that idea. Because you're saying there is a ton of matter we can infer the existence of it but we can't see it and so that right there causes you to think like well. Maybe we're getting some of this
Why Offices Have Cubicles
"A couple of years ago. I got really interested in cubicles. Probably because i was spending way too much time in mind and those beige fabric covered walls. Were really getting to me. Giving me existential. Angst you know like in the movie office space. We don't have a lot of time on this earth we weren't meant to spend it this way. Human beings were not meant to sit and little cubicle staring at computer screens all day filling out useless forms and listening to eight different bosses drone on about mission statements. I wanted to find out how these little boxes got so popular. How did they take over office. Buildings around the world. And i found this amazing infomerrcial from the nineteen sixties. That touted the benefits of a whole new way to build workspaces. You and i are today. Living and industry's finest hour. An age of hurry. An era of efficiency period of productivity the likes of which the world has never seen and super fast smart effective age era. Millions of people who still working old offices and haven't stopped a realized they still work in old fashioned offices enter action office. The original lofty vision later became the pubic. It was designed by the herman miller company exactly is action often. I'm walking through it right now. It's a far better environment. Today's changing functions an instant flexible office facility the comparative in parallel the surging turbulent business life. It serves your business changing constantly. Your office should change with it. So the cubicle was born as a sleek looking shape shifting office space with hinged walls designed to create either small spaces or to open up wide for group meetings. The new buzz phrase back then was knowledge. Work and cubicles were supposed to facilitate this free flow of ideas and
The History of Experimental Research in Psychology
"Psychology has been an important topic of study for centuries the ancient greeks and egyptians had their schools of thought on it as did the people in ancient india and china. it wasn't until the nineteenth century. Though when psychological research turned from the philosophical to the experimental german psychologist gustave thickener started testing human brains response to various stimuli around the eighteen thirties from their experts. Such as herman ebbing house went on to study other functions of the mind from memory to introspection to classical conditioning psychology became a bustling industry of experimentation. Eventually scientists didn't just want to learn the limits of the brain. They wanted to understand what made people tick. Why were some individuals able to say no while others were more closers. Stanley milgram of yale university tested this in his famous milgram experiment in nineteen sixty one. He invited participants to administer electric shocks to someone in another room. As the shocks increased in power the screams of the unknown party got louder and more intense until they stopped completely. But don't worry nobody died. The electric shocks weren't even real but the effects on the subjects pushing the buttons certainly were milgram wanted to test how far a person would go in following orders from an authority figure even if those orders involved hurting or even killing someone else. He based his experiment. On the actions of the nazis during world war two the stanford prison experiment of nineteen seventy-one took things further by placing college students in a simulated prison environment. The purpose was to study. How power affected one psychological states one group of students was given the title of guard while another subset was placed in the prisoner role. Three guards were pulled out of the experiment early after demonstrating what were described as genuine sadistic tendencies. The prisoners also suffered they were referred to by numbers rather than their names. They were stripped naked and sprayed with a hose in shorts. They were humiliated the two week experiment was terminated. After just six

What Do You Know About the Galapagos Islands?
"Do you know about the galapagos islands. Probably that it's a remote island in the pacific ocean but it played a hand in the works of charles. Darwin the theory of evolution. But that's not all that makes the island unique it's the backdrop for one of the most bizarre murder mysteries which includes poly-amorous fake teeth. Giant tortoises and murder. Today we're gonna talk about the galapagos affair so the human history of the glucose islands doesn't begin with charles darwin really though his visit in eighteen. Thirty five definitely. Put the islands on the map will literally put it on the map. Us whalers and pirates were already. they're hunting giant galapagos tortoises. These tortoises were actually very humongous. Very slow think like thousands of pounds and could live for years in the hold of a ship providing fresh meat on long. Voyages flurry an island in the galapagos. Has the most human activity and it's the only island with a fresh water supply in eighteen twenty. All the giant tortoises were killed on the island. When crew members of the ill fading whaling vessel essex torched it for no apparent reason after the essex left a sperm whale sunk their ship. So there you go for months. The sailors drifted helplessly in lifeboats sunburn. Starving before turning to cannibalism to survive. They drew straws to see who became food for the rest and then they do another straw to decide who would kill that person of the twenty crew. Only eight survived.

"Coming to you from richmond. Virginia my name is ryan mcgee in joining me in southampton england. The birthday boy. Jonathan handcrafts hello often. Happy birthday thank you. You are one year closer to being eligible for seniors. Yeah but my problem is on so the seniors cutoffs july. I actually got a wait if an extra year that you have to wait yell all d- like fifty one where i can play seniors. That's not fair. well. I got an extra year when i was a junior. So okay all right well i i guess you can't have it. Have it both ways. Then that'll spare. That'll spare stu brand and greg down the sadness we're having to play with me or against me for one year where we do have today in an interview that you did. You did it before. I woke up with with someone from the belgian curling federation. While i guess he's not he's he doesn't have a job with the belgian curling federation but he's a member of it in is also involved with the dedicated curling facility that was built in belgium. And we'll get to that in just a second but first we do have a couple pieces of curling news. One is from san francisco here in the united states. Our friends at san francisco bay. Curling club are very close to realizing their dream of having their own dedicated curling facility however they put out a video on youtube saying that they are a few thousand dollars shorts and they do have to come with that money before the end of july. It is today. We are recording this on july eighteenth. So they've got a little under a couple of weeks to come up with that and you can learn more about their capital campaign Over at dedicated ice dot com. But they they have the building. It looks like it's a good way finished. But they're they're short a few thousand bucks and they have to come up with it here pretty quick and they explain why In the video that they put on youtube as well elsewhere we did have the starving curling club in omaha reached out to us. We asked for bonds bill announcements so they sent them into us there. I spun spiel. They have a one day fund spiel on october thirtieth with two game guarantee and a costume contest. That's likely going to be mostly for people who are local to omaha Or if you've you're within driving range that might be a good one for you. But their main bondsteel. The irish open is march. Twenty fifth through twenty seven to twenty team open bond spiel and you can learn more about it at curl ex. Urban dot com in that is x. Arben is nebraska spelled backwards. But i've played in that spiel before really really good people at x. arbin curling club in their bondsteel spiel has grown. Since i've played in it in it's a really fun time so i suggest that if you have the means to get to omaha go check out their spiel the rink which has like a lot of glasgow side or not like you can see. Yeah yeah look at that rink. They were not at that rink when i played there but yeah you have a really nice. You really nice view while you're playing even though you're on arena ice. It looks cool. Will on social media so jonathan. Who did you talk to from belgium. I talked to gary herman's who's a listened to the podcast And he's kind of mess just a few times. We figured we are trying to go around the world here right gotta slowly but surely we went australia week. And we've been a whole bunch of other places so we figured let's go to belgium and actually as long as the interview. I realized that belgium is probably the closest curling rink to the one. I played in a really by distance. I think i. I'm going to double check it but i think it's it's because it's about three hundred miles from tunbridge wells. The preston exempts is probably a bit a little bit less. Maybe the dutch may be closer than does the netherlands hemp have dedicated curling facility. Yes we should do. Another one's episode. You know dig dig into that. The lowland rivalries. Yeah school right next door next door. Yes they are mere. That's actually a cool facility because it's a three sheet in a building and because Ice skating like Like bong track ice skating. Yeah is really is really up. In the netherlands they actually have a giant oval rounded upstairs and then the rakers is downstairs in the middle of the oval. I guess it's a pretty cool facility and they've got like a large ice hockey rink also so i think that's the setup that they have in salt lake utah. I are bluff to reach out to our friends in salt lake. And see if i'm right there but i think that they took that olympic oval that they had for the two thousand two games and basically could put curling ice in the middle of it. But i'll have to check on that. I'm probably wrong. But what i found really interesting about your chat with gary from belgium is they are very focused. On first and foremost growing the grass roots aspect of the game in maintaining the social aspect of the game rather than putting money into high-performance because even though they have now a dedicated curling facility in belgium they would rather use it to introduce people to the sport and use it to take advantage of take advantage of the warm room and maintaining the social aspect rather than trying to trying to compete with the the rest of europe at in international in international curling. Yeah and i think the other note is they really see. Learned to carl's as a money spinner for the rank like like. He was pretty clear in the interview at. That's that's the primary majority of their income is that and they see it. Not i think. A lot of clubs see learned curls primarily as a membership recruitment tool. They see it as kind of a core part of their business that actually and we talked to the rink manager and in saudi and same thing than maybe most people don't wanna join curling but they may want to come in and give it a try once and so maybe what one mistake. I've seen a lot of kind of newer clubs make is they. They gave away the learn to curl for free hoping that will convert into membership. And actually maybe two percent. Three percent of your learn. Curlers will become members saw. I think some of cleverer clubs have figured out that. No what you do as you're charged at a reasonable price makes money use it as a bit of publicity and if you get some conversion out of it's great but primarily use it as a way to help fund the other activities. Then if they've spent twenty five thirty dollars to try curling they've got a little bit of skin in the game rather than just doing it for free. Yeah i think. I think that's important. I do think that curlers sometimes underpricing undervalue value the time of members of the volunteering. These kinds of things and under under price also You know these days. Twenty five bucks. Anyway i'm sure like an evening. Bowling would cost the same. Right wasn't bullying in asia as most other nights at would cost about that. So it's reasonable.
What is a Comparable Sale?
"Now i raise the issue of asking what a comparable sale is simply because there is no clear or practical definition of what a comparable sale is in the appraisal literature. If you go to mark rat. Herman's book he says comparable sales should have the same ori very similar highest and best use as the subject. The fifteenth addition of the appraisal of real estate says essentially the same thing now. These are a tatum sources. But let's face it. They're not highly read nor are they highly consulted when it comes to residential real estate. Interestingly enough us pap itself they use pap. Document does not have a definition of a comparable sale in fact standard rule. One dash four which is as close as us pep gets the sales comparison approach merely tells the appraiser to quote analyzed such comparable sales data as are available again. This is an authoritative source but very few people read us. Pap quite frankly. A fannie mae doesn't have any definition of what a comparable sale is. Either it merely describes what it considers to be the characteristics of a comparable sale for example it says a comparable sale has to have the same or highly similar characteristics as the subject now this refers to the subject site in other words it size frontage depth view exposure location proximity to employment centers downtown recreation facilities etc it refers as well to similarity of room counts that just avoids a lot of unnecessary adjustments similarity of gla for the same thing trying to avoid adjustments similarity of style in other words. You're probably not going to compare a ranch with a victorian and then it requires a similarity of condition

America's War on Drugs: 50 Years Later
"Carl grew up in miami in the seventies and eighties grew up in a predominantly black neighborhood. Would some would deem resource poor and he got a very clear message about drugs. People talked about drugs in a very same way as they talk about drugs. Now drugs are bad on do drugs. Drugs are the source of are suffering drugs. 'cause addiction drugs are the reason that people die prematurely plenty of people in his neighborhood drinker smoke cigarettes or we'd but there were drugs that seemed out of bounce wants people warned them about drugs like crack and heroin. It was nothing to see a public service announcement with someone like peewee. Herman this is crack. Rocco peewee. Herman would be talking to kids saying something about. Everybody wants to be cool. Hey you wanna be cool like me I don't do crack because doing crack is like putting a loaded gun in your mouth and pulling the trigger and that state in my mind for a long time. Some of my assumptions were that a drug like crack. Cocaine was so addictive one hit is all that was required for the user to become addicted. Everyone who smoked crack cocaine eventually became addicted and then about the people who use drugs. I thought they were horrible people. I thought that they were irresponsible. People i thought that they could only focus on getting another hit if their drug. It would take me a good fifteen years to start questioning the story that i was telling myself. Is it fair to say you were scared of drugs. Yeah it's fair to say that. I was absolutely scared of drugs. I believe those messages so much so i decided to study drugs And try and figure out how. I could help people who were addicted
Herman Miller Director of Gaming on Company's Dominance
Here’s the Latest on the Epic vs Apple Trial
"Of the high stakes courtroom battle between Apple and Fortnight maker Epic games, and this week it is apples turn to prove it is not an antitrust violator, with expectations that the tech giant will bring in its most powerful spokesperson, that is Tim Cook. To testify. Bloomberg. Mark Herman has the very latest. So mark, where are we with this trial? Yes. So we are in the probably final week of the trial. Today we've heard Phil Schiller, the former senior VP of marketing and now an Apple fellow in charge of the APP store testifying to Apple's business practices why the APP store operates the way it does. And its interactions with developers. And we've also gotten a few interesting stats about how the APP stores run that there are 280,000 games out of two million total APS and how much it costs Apple to run its annual developer conferences. So talk to us about the case that has been made so far. It sounds like you've repeatedly come out of these hearings. Feeling like epic hasn't really proven Its case. I mean, I'm not a lawyer or anything, but I've been listening into most of the trial on a daily basis, and I have simply not heard any compelling arguments or seriously compelling argument for how Apple is doing something not necessarily wrong. But how it's really hurting developers on all levels. You've heard Microsoft testify you've heard in video testify. I don't think epic has brought any smoking guns to the table about Apple, you know, purposely trying to cross smaller developers. Personally, I think you know, Apple's APP store fees are a bit too high for the year 2021. Given the economies of scale. Maybe 30% made sense where there were very few APS on the store. But now that 30% is generating nearly 20 billion profit per year and spread out across two million APS, you know that 30% is worth a lot more to Apple than it was way back in the day. So I think that needs to change. And even Phil Schiller echoed that when Apple launched its program to slice the fees for developers to generate under a million per year from 30% to 15%, Schiller said, he argued for the cuts be below 15%. So I think this is something that Apple recognizes in some respect, too. But regardless of opinions, regardless of how bad you know, epic thinks Apple behaves Is a contract at stake. And the first thing you need to know about the legal world is if you have a contract, and it's legitimate and all parties have signed it, and there's no contractual issues there. You know, it's pretty hard to argue with that piece of paper with signatures, and that's what Apple for all intensive purposes has with epic at this point.
2 Killed in Driverless Tesla Car Crash
"National highway traffic safety administration in the united states and the national transportation safety board have both sent teams to investigate a fatal car crash involving twenty nine tesla model s in spring texas. The car went off the road. Coming out of cold sack. After failing to negotiate a slight curve at high speed harris county constable mark. Herman said one occupant was in the front passenger seat and one in the backseat. Neither occupant was in the driver's seat. Now it's not clear you might jump to the conclusion. But it's not clear if tesla autopilot was active when the car crashed. Tesla ceo elon. Musk had re tweeted news just earlier that same day. The tesla's autopilot feature was quote approaching ten times. Lower chance of accident than the average vehicle constable. Herman also noted that the car caught fire when it hit a tree and took more than thirty thousand gallons of water to extinguish because the battery kept reigniting and apparently they had to get in contact with tesla for some advice in how to get that fire to go

COVID-19 Relief Package Includes Billions For Transportation Sector
"All right how often did you fly. Or maybe the trainer buster in the pandemic. Yeah the transportation sector has been hit hard but anyone who rides in trains planes or automobile should benefit from the one point nine trillion dollar cove relief package. Npr's david schaper reports. It was a year ago this week. The us what unlocked down highways and airports were suddenly almost deserted. People travelling overseas scrambled to get flights home at mass transit. Trains ran nearly empty in the virginia. Suburbs of washington. Dc forty six year old. Sandra vigil had been driving buses packed. with sixty. to seventy people are more. We ended up taking towards the end of march. He was like one two people per ride. If you had any people at all last march twenty ninth vigil says she about ninety five percent of her loudon county. Transit co workers were furloughed. Her's lasted four and a half months and unemployment wasn't enough to make ends meet. A lot of fail behind are not rental car payments. Because he was either eating or paint a car or paying the rent and thing they lakeville transit systems across the country so ridership plummet ninety percent or more in revenue fell with it yet. Mass transit is essential especially for many low wage workers. Again bus driver. Sandra vigil in order to keep the buses running and to keep us working. We needed this money. The relief bill includes thirty billion dollars for transit. It also includes one point seven billion dollars for amtrak enough to bring twelve hundred furloughed employees back to work and restore daily service on long distance routes and there's funding to help states continue fixing crumbling roads and bridges offsetting. They're lost gas tax revenue as for airlines. I have fantastic news year. That's american airline ceo. Doug parker in a video message to employees about the plan which includes another fourteen billion dollars payroll support. That's good news for the thirteen thousand american employees who were facing furloughs april. First so if you have one of those worn out notices we sit out in february. Tear it up. There aren't going to be any furloughs at american airlines in april and with vaccinations on the rise. Hopefully never again. Ceo parker says the last three weeks have been the airlines best. Since the pandemic hit with bookings and passenger volumes up that's happening at other airlines too so much so that after months of hemorrhaging tens of millions of dollars a day the ceo's of delta and united now expect to reduce their daily cash. Burn two zero this month or next while southwest is on track to break even by june. Of course that's relatively easy to do. When tax payers are essentially covering much of your payroll airlines have now received more than fifty billion dollars in federal payroll grants since the start of the pandemic. This was hugely important. And as a pilot for american airlines at spokesman for the pilot's union. The last thing i wanted to be is on our heels when everybody was ready to get back. Flying tiger says if pilots had been furloughed. They need weeks. If not months of training before being able to fly passengers again. You do not want to be staring at the recovery and turning around and seeing the flight deck empty. Because you weren't able to train. The pilots quickly. Enough joe sweet. Herman transportation professor at chicago's depaul university. Says this government aid is crucial is pretty clear that the airlines were such a desire straight federal assistance and a big way we would have lost an airliner to sweden and says the federal aid helps airlines amtrak transit agencies and highway departments continue critical operations while adapting to a post covid world a world that will likely lead to more operational changes in the near.

Kansas splits with athletic director Jeff Long two days after parting ways with Les Miles
"Get you updated on what is happening in lawrence kansas. Where less mild was let go the other day and then this afternoon the man who hired him and presumably let him go has also been shown. The door crisslow joining us on that story and others. Chris thanks for the time. Always good to have you on and give us the latest. How did how did how did this happen. So quickly with jeff long. It's great to be with you. Always i I really felt like we heard the news about less miles that this was just it was going to happen with jeff law and just did not senior way. He would survive. I think what happened in a lot of donors a kansas at the end of the day. The president a chance to learn. Douglas giradi heard from several influential donors that they just did not want to be the guy to hire the next head football coach and i think when you look back sort of having all the down with less weight ended there that The more that they thought about it. And i think jeff athletics look long enough to know he said in a statement. Today was going to be a huge distraction more hung around and and they wanna make a clean break. Bring somebody else in to hire the knicks head football coach. Oh by the way they got issues the basketball program. Well they certainly do. And i saw her. Danny manning announced that he was a contender for the ad job. But as we. I don't know whether tennessee is the template but you do need an athletic director to get in there. Fairly quickly don't you. Yeah you don't the what's your proverbial tail wagging the dog. So yeah you gotta bring somebody else somebody. And it's going to be the ad someone that's that's gonna be the football coaches boss. I tell you name to keep in mind. Travis goff and northwestern we went to kansas undergrad. There how highly respected and sort of in the world. And he's a guy that you're going to hear a lot of push for from donors from influential people there k you to bring in to come in higher this the next head football coach. I think a guy will be certainly equipped to deal with. What's going to come their way on the basketball front as well talking to crisslow chris. Let me just take a step back and go back in time time to lsu and unless miles and after this information dumped the other day and learning much more about what happened down there and what didn't happen. I'm curious as a reporter who has covered so many scandals in so many so many big stories in college football just your your takeaway from from the progression of that program with with joe alita and less miles to to really where it is now and where does it go to try to clean up a rather tattered reputation. Yeah you think back to two thousand eleven ten years ago paul. Lsu's on top of the world now. Granted they lost alabama national championship. But that was a great football team In in a team that was is elite as it gets and now here. We are ten years later and they won the championship last year. But a lot of things off the field. A lot of things going on you know you. You always felt like there at the end of his tenured. Lsu that there was a lot of people. They're out to get him. When i say out to get him that wanted to move on. I just felt like they could do better. But as you know you know the sec. As well as anybody yeses. He thinks they can do better. Except for maybe in tuscaloosa And i think the some of the political forces around lsu sorta helpless. We're on his side to leave. Certainly it and four games the sixteen season they got it in. You heard jimbo. Fisher's name all sorts of aim. Tom herman the end up with a lot of people felt like that was never going to work with all the old winter national championship last year and really a great job assembling people going out and getting staff around in but now here we are off the field with this complete invested in investigation. As some of the way things have been handled with sexual assault domestic incidents going back before was head coach So you're right. There's there's a lot on their at lsu Just like kansas. You've got issues with the basketball team as well So it's It's a mess right now. We'll see where it all

I want to try to cover as much ground as possible. Because you know. I'm easily board but But i also want to give you But i have sort of subdivided in terms of you know just overall kind of progressions in in in casting and production and post production. I wanted to start. I I've always found your writing appealing personally. in the same way that i always love bill goldman's and and the reason for that is you're a decidedly serious person who is actually writing comedies about a dramatic ventures that have real stakes and end the example. That i have is like butch and sundance where they're debating the different ways that the super policy might kill them when he says they could go for position they can start a rockslide. That could get us that way. What else could they do. I'm treating the next line. But it's a could surrender of albion account on that. Tell me about and that was a occurred to me on social network that that you were that you were doing this thing that the the writing the the storytelling was extensively Comic in in. And i don't mean that in a derogatory lightweight sense It was wildly entertaining in talking about things. That were you know. truly dramatic and is not a is that something that you're conscious of or am my of of disappeared on my own. It's something that i'm conscious of and by the way bill goldman mentor me. Beginning from mike early twenties you know he passed away a few years ago. You know. we're very close. He was teaching me before we met with his with a screenplay with A nonfiction and then he a red by i play which was a few good men and he saw something in me. And if you want to teach me how to write screenplays but yes. I always think first of all if you can tell serious story. Funny you're you're doing yourself a big favor. Part of it might just come from an insecurity. Maybe a healthy insecurity of a comedy drama. I am not good enough at Either events do only one of them commit something pitches while or their other. I mean obviously goldman is one but are there other Heroes personal screenwriting heroes at. You can point to in sort of say this is. This is something off from them or their work. This is something that you know. Certainly tchaikovsky the answer is our number screenwriters in patty tchaikovsky For a host of reasons. Both my brothers herman joseph Billy wilder true There are things. I get from a contemporary screenwriters as well. Tony kushner quentin tarantino Amanda So i'm i'm i'm easily influenced i and the ad as a screenwriter at a now that a i've directed a couple of films I really i try to be a diagnostician. Mom I'll watch you watch film of yours Not necessarily social network Any of them. I'm end up a love. Something and i'll try and reverse engineer. I will try to in my mind.

"herman" Discussed on Burn the Haystack
"Like they were talking so much doing whatever they're doing. They're actually disrupting the entire. Meeting. Yeah like it's more about I think it's more about wives talking to each other. Yeah. Think because. I think yeah. Last week also lent about the Jewish synagogue had the women would sit separately to the and if you're a gentle coming in, you probably wouldn't neue. How that was all supposed to. Yeah. So I mean this is interesting as well when you when you add it to the. The other part we were talking about how every person is bringing a prophecy and bringing a word in worship that'll work with this. But anyway, that's another. Yeah. Yeah. So I. It's it's funny. You know we have interpreted this passage as wives should not speak during the assembly a women should not speak during the assembly so. Many cases, we've actually we've taken out the the relational aspect, the husband wife dynamic going on. In this passage, we've also taken out the the the situational aspect of actually what Paul is talking about in this situation and it is implied, but it is not inferred. So therefore, we actually have to do the work. And when we are forming a Herman unique, it's a lot easier to not do the work and to do a hominid on outcome sense which if we are more inclined to believe women are not permitted to preach up the front Then this is this is a slam dunk for US basically, right But if we ought to scratch the surface, we can see that the Herman unique that we can form out of this is very, very different from the common sense playing rating of the Scripture Right So, do WANNA to give a a one-sentence what you think the how many of these is a what we want have we done that? What we have done that no, I don't think we have done that. Okay. So he can we WANNA do that I think. Bit Mysterious. Now. I think we can. We can do a little bit I think it would be unsatisfying to not actually. Stay claims one way or the other. But I do think it is important for us to let's compare. Okay. If if if we take that second role right and Oh actually if we take the first and second role so. If it didn't if the author didn't mean it. And the audience didn't receive it in the same way then we can't have it as a hominid. So let's let's think about that. Do we live In a church setting. Where women? First of all for the most part illiterate. or at the very least uneducated. Would no we don't yeah. Yeah Yeah. So, that's straight off the bat. Okay. We there's a little bit of cultural difference there. Little. Bit. We haven't female prime, minister? Jesse. Yeah okay. second of all, do we live in a culture where men and women are forced to sit in different sections of the meeting room when partaking in Church Not, a natural context but I don't WanNa rule that they could be some churches in New Zealand that still do that I'm not sure that there are certainly some churches in the world where that is probably still the reality and actually we should say that there are probably some parts of the world where women I don't have access to the same education as as men. It's a lot less than what it used to be, but there are probably some pots where that's the case however, the mice pot not really. Dumb. I most women that I know if they were forced through that, probably feel pretty offended and I don't blame them so. Okay Yeah nowadays in Church we sit in family units generally. Yeah generally. Yeah and we sit in family units that we're all sort of educated and way world fairly well, the we all have access equal opportunity for the most part, and of course, that's a whole different conversation. But for the most part, we have equal opportunity to reading the Scriptures to stand theology to understanding Aaron Walk, with God and I would actually say in in many families women are probably a little bit more onto the then then the men the situation. Again a whole another point guard. Jesse. Third thing. Do we live in a context where a church context practically speaking where women are constantly interrupting the Church Service Four Chatter and asking for clarification on points of theology. Women's specifically no. Do I have times when people are interrupting services we chatter and random questions. Yes but it's not refined refund to just women Yep. Okay. That's my honest answer. That's that's clearly coming from a very specific place. I've been at a lot of judges Yeah. There's there's interruptions but.
