They get because they literally kind of eaten it at absorbed into themselves that since where they get some of their more human traits and i don't wanna say tumor more about that because it's something i'm going to explore in more detail in the third book of the trilogy still is kind of the nature of the gods where where some of these tendencies of there is actually came from. I think one of my favorite odds has has to be your phrase. They've got humanity literally because they've eaten it. I love the gods and the angels in your world. I like to say you know. In invented kamiz. They graciously allow the humans to continue that scientific endeavors. That in some ways can question the garden switch as we know. That's just not done. But the humans still and rely on the gods for a lot of things you know to to save them in in times of crises and to defend against other aliens in and all sorts of things and it feels very much. Like you know you've created kind of system of checks and balances and you know. I have like my high school politics coming back to me now. The parliament yes.

It's always like <Speech_Male> trying to find the team <Speech_Male> that come in support it <Speech_Male> and i wanna get back <Speech_Male> to being on that <Speech_Male> front of it. All the time <Speech_Male> is like what <Speech_Male> is the idea. How can <Speech_Male> we save space. Or how <Speech_Male> can we redesign it. <Speech_Male> I love that. Also <Speech_Male> i mean it's the <Speech_Male> best unluckiest part <Speech_Male> about being an entrepreneur. <Speech_Male> Is it you get to talk <Speech_Male> about.

Redlining left neighborhoods vulnerable to heat
"For decades. Many banks refuse loans to people buying homes in certain urban neighborhoods. the lenders claim the loans. Were too risky. But that assessment was heavily influenced by the race of residence. This practice is called redlining and it left lasting damage. In many communities reduced individual wealth home ownership and investment in schools and transportation in recent research shows that formerly redlined areas are also more vulnerable to extreme heat. Jeremy hoffman of the science museum of virginia says these neighborhoods tend to have fewer shade trees and more pavement making them hotter nationally. It ends up being about four and a half degrees. Fahrenheit warmer on average during the summer in these formerly red light areas than in their non redline neighbors the problem will get worse as the climate warms so hoffmann says to protect residents health. It's important to find immediate solutions like building. Shade structures at bus stopped planting trees and adding parts could also help cool neighborhoods in the long-term reimagining with of the individuals in the communities that were redlined. What's their vision for what their community looks like in the next ten twenty thirty years

Music that Imitates Inanimate Objects
"Hello. I'm Naomi Lewin. Welcome to classics for kids. It's pretty obvious that at the beginning of the second movement of Beethoven's Eighth Symphony The Orchestra is imitating something mechanical. That's not a clock ticking. It's a metronome, the machine that was invented to show exactly how fast or slow a piece of music should be played before the metronome. The only way to show the tempo of a piece was by writing fast slow, very fast or very slow usually in Italian on the music. But a composer had no way of telling you exactly how fast very fast was. That's where the. Comes in. In, the early eighteen hundreds Dutch inventor named Dietrich Nichols Vinko perfected a machine that could be adjusted to take at set speeds, but Vinko wasn't a good salesman. So he didn't get credit for it. A friend of Beethoven's Johann. NEPOMUK melt. Seoul was the one who took out the patent on the metronome and marketed it. So he gets the credit. When you see 'em m equals sixty on a piece of music. The M M's stands for metals. metronome equals sixty a metronome marking of sixty is one tic per second, which is about the speed if your pulse. battleplan was the only composer to write music imitating an inanimate object something that's not alive. He wasn't even the only one to write music takes composers love to put clocks into their music. That's the symphony number one, hundred, one by Franz Joseph Haydn, which is nicknamed the clock for pretty obvious reasons. Hungarian composers ultime Kodi put a musical clock into his opera Janos. There's also a famous fairy tale character for Houma clock striking midnight was very important and very scary Sergei. prokofiev wrote a ballet Cinderella including the clock. One last. A tick that slightly off balance, there's a piece by American composer. Leroy Anderson called the syncopated clock. In this piece, the clock goes tick Tock Tick Tock and then suddenly. It does something different syncopation in music is when you shift the accent from where you expect it. To, someplace you don't. Leroy Anderson loved inanimate objects. He wrote another piece imitating one that's just about disappeared these days before there were computers with printers, there was the typewriter. In music, it's not just instruments that imitate inanimate objects sometimes singers due to. That's from the first act of Jacques Offenbach, opera the tales of Hoffmann in which the hero Hoffman falls in love with a woman named Olympia or whether he thinks Olympia is a woman but she's really a mechanical doll in the middle of singing her mechanical music she runs out of steam and someone has to wind her back up. Played. Some wonderful jokes with their mechanical music

I did so many things I got on planes repeatedly because I never saw distances tints is a barrier. I thought nothing of it which sounds crazy now but like I never like hired Sky Raider but let's just say I did. It's time writing level declarations of love. That were like what the other person just had no interest in responding to that whatsoever. Aw Aw he sings your glance. It has poured it's fire into mine like radiant stars in feel Michael Luvin scented braff. Passover might Lipson is in each phrase offenbach takes a half step higher commodities US through good.

Don't forget this. The highest level of poetry. We've seen from him yet. This is the most expensive the most erotic of all the music that he seems and it seduces us. We ourselves Sir characters in that story of Seduction Offenbach begins the IRA and QB flat very ordinary key. The key of the good old star Crisp angled better but as a vocal line climbs and moves towards the climax at modulate to the very sexy key of deflate. Major it's hard hard the way it climbs at the end up to the top eight flat. It's just difficult to remain in control and not let emotion get the better of you. I'm sure that I would speak virtually for every retainer and saying that we're all really glad it's short then he brings it all down to piano again and he starts Aria again or heard either all ours. I mean he just brings it home to her in a way that leaves no possibility that she could not understand exactly what she did him and then you know she throw them over. She gives him this Magic Mirror and it's steals his reflection or we can say His soul which leaves him a little bit crazy right and we see her at the end of the scene.

Sometimes people are trying to charm you or because of all the way they've been hurt they present in ways that aren't there truth south so there is the illusion of what we hope for him as to the illusion of of how people present and there's a lot of women there to fall and be hurt and just get it all wrong.

I mean this is incredibly they sexy and beautiful stuff but the longing is not really about and it's not really about any of these other women it's sort of a logging reading from long and what happens is that longing is projected onto winner. These fantasies poll mass or creative inspiration or experimental access. This isn't new the idea of female Muse these women even though they're idolized as museums are also always demonized. Because ultimately they can't involve these ideals women are up on these pedestals tolls and not only do they fall off. But they're blamed for those failures right they turn out to be automata or to be courtesans and they have a fem battle kind of feel around them and they are emblems of male failure to really access whatever creative wellspring they're looking for because no one can ultimately satisfy.

"But the problem is that every time Antonio sings some of her life drains away so singing opinion is pathological for her and finally she dies. The third story is about Juliet. The cortisone who is really just hired to seduce him. It's based on quite a long on story called the New Year's Eve. Adventure we meet the character of Julieta recorders in Venice. Venice has long been a place European fiction of his time. That's bound up with sort of darkness. Mystery exoticism relaxed Morals Gondolas pleasure parties. You know this kind of thing. I've only been to Venice once and I remember. I have no idea how I found my hotel at night. Because essentially confused mess of little streets and water and nothing felt solid under your feet there. Anything could happen at any moment. Someone could just jump out of the shadows Venice's this is a very shadowy place Hoffman and washes up on a Gondola to this party. That shoe Liotta ah these hosting. She's basically a call girl she has a couple of goonies hanging around her friend. Schlemiel and then the evil baritone Hoffman's nemesis star pair. to-to supernatural magician. Is there on the scene. And he basically bribes Juliette. This big big beautiful diamond jewels. Diamonds are a girl's best friend in this case and basically he wants the soul of Hofmann Dr Dapper. to-to tasted Julieta. Your job is to get Hoffman's reflection and give it to me in other words to capture his soul she agrees. And Somehow it's not clearly explained. Julieta has the ability to steal a man shadow and so she finds the perfect trump in Hoffman. And what she does is promise him a date. She basically promises in sex. At first he resists terms but Julieta sings a set action piece succumbs. His heart leaps. He falls in love At which point he sends owed.

I told him that I didn't have plans. Because great abundance controversy going to get together I will text you with the information. He did not tax wasted home and I completely cut all my hair off. 'cause I was so sad and on a different New Year's Eve I did arrange to meet someone who I'd been seen and this guy let's just say in a broad sense. He was a diplomat and he was very dashing and I was really smitten with him and the party that he invited me to which was like you know. All of these foreign dignitary types. He should up with another girl. Stumbled into Times Square at a phone booth called my friend crying and just was devastated. Like I couldn't believe it I was like I guess we're not dating anymore and I'm Latin my family's from Panama and so we're very superstitious about near as eve. You have to have like your nails done in your fair coned in your house clean because the idea that however the new year finds you is how the whole year ago so these disastrous New Year's eve things were doubly devastating because it was kind of like the universe was saying oh New Year's eve is ruined cast. What the year had? It's going to suck too so what we get when he starts in the Aria. It's just a pure outpouring of love. The very first phrase Judeh Kylie. The melody is such that asks the singer to make a very big league. It is very expressive. And in that in that very first sleep it tells you so much about the way Hoffman. Feels about Julieta. This burning fuse this fire. That's in him. It's lit again. He's just been inspired into a deeper more poetic more emotional state and his own art which is a new level. But it's all a trick. It's always a destructive love and he's constantly frustrated. It's never attainable. He's a tragic romantic..

He's come into the bar with his friend Nick Laos and he's in a black mood like he needs xanax or something and Uh that seems to be true of quite a few of these tenders for some reason.

Tim Appears so many authors. So I'm super excited to talk about this opera inspired by some old school fantasy writing by e t a a Hoffman. That's earns Teodor Amadeus Hoffmann. If you're wondering but you can just call him. ETA Well Hoffman was a German master of horror. You're back in the eighteen. Hundreds his stories were out there. Like there's one where people steal each other shadows and one where they sing themselves to death and there's another one with d'appel gangbangers who were maybe just split personalities but you never really sure creepy stories like this had a long history in Germany but not. That's so much in France so it was Kinda like this bomb went off when Hoffmann's work made its way across the border. It was all out. Hoffman Mania it's no big surprise that the French composer Jacques Offenbach ended up seeing a play. Based on Hoffman Stories. That night at the theatre became the inspiration for his final work. Doc Lake on Dos man the tales of Hoffmann over the course of the opera. The Hero Hoffman tells his tales to a group of students over drinks. Lots and lots of drinks. These tales of Hoffmann are about three different women. He's loved none of these relationships was actually unconsummated. They're mostly just obsessions and they don't into well so the whole opera is really about misplaced. An unmet desires take his very brief affair. With the COURTESAN Julieta. She wants to lure him in so she can steal. His soul. Hoffman sings this passionate Aria. Oh Dude Kelly visor all about how much he loves her even know he's just met her. Tenors you hear more about all of that in just a couple of minutes but first let's clarify something right off. The Bat Hoffman is both the name of the real life writer and our protagonist.

He's just finished his twenty second season at the MIT. That seems impossible. Actually I don't understand. The time has gone but he's been performing for a lot longer longer than that.

The modern love column really divulges. What a disaster? I was dating good way to talk about dating being like those dance. Dance Revolution Games where you're trying to follow the stops and you think you're doing well and then it just gets faster and harder harder and everything else. Those Games are terrifying. And finally Francesca Britain. An associate professor of Music Case Western Reserve University in Ohio. My I work centers on nineteenth and twentieth century music. She wrote the book music and fantasy in the age of barely ohs and she's interested in the work of ETA Hoffman and other fantasy writers. I think that all of us want to believe and have an intuitive sense that there is another world there is enchantment there are wondrous sounds and smells and other cells. You are about to enter another dimension. That's the signpost up ahead you're your next up the tales of Hoffmann an opera fantastic. That's what Offenbach called the tales of Hoffmann a work. Unlike any he had ever written before the stories themselves by each Hoffman are so rich that You go back to them and you find new things all the time so you to Hoffman was a really compelling figure. He was working in the early part of the nineteenth century and he was sort of one part author one part critic one part composer painter poet conductor he was also a trained lawyer. Also an opera composer of some success was theatre director scenery. Builder hitter manager. He was also a drinker. And I I kind of grotesque sense of humor and he was essential contribution the German romantic movement so we know him now primarily as the author of a collection of fantastic tales and their defining characteristic is his that they hover between the domain of reality and the domain of the unreal. Some of them feel like episode of the twilight zone where you going along and everything a sort of normal and then the rug is just pull right after Monday. You and I think that was what people began to love in the theater. Or as an outgrowth of romantic antic literature fantastic tales often start especially in Hoffman's writing in identifiable in places like Venice. So you know where you are. You're in the real world and there's sometimes quite prosaic they describe what people are eating what they're wearing their jobs and suddenly without any warning supernatural events or people enter the landscape and disrupt our sense sense of normalcy. And that's part of the appeal of the opera. Really is the fantastical. The unknown the twilight zone ness of it all the tales kind of start in the middle and end sometimes before they really resolve so from a narrative perspective. It's a very fantastic opera. uh-huh off the narrator of details of woeful love that dominated tales of Hoffman. But he's also a fictional character within within these stories and it's never quite clear are we encountering Hoffman the historical real figure or are we encountering Green fictionalized sort of stories in which he plays a role.

Iran seized 2 British tankers in the Strait of Hormuz
"Are joining us we now have for oil tankers seized in the straits of hormones by the Iranian revolutionary guard to British one Liberian and apparently a few days ago we weren't aware of it probably because of the close proximity across the straits or moves one UAE tanker also the president commenting on it earlier and he basically saying the Iran's economy is crashing very competently saying all it's gonna work out there in a lot of trouble right now especially I think based on strategic alliances that now have been built Dan how but I think I can say this C. I. A. ops officer thirty years and I think I'm I know the president's thinking on this having interviewed a mentor in times he is not going to get involved in a long protracted conflict the president took off the hand cuffs in Syria and guess what the caliphate ISIS will be back a bomb the crap out of them and the rules of engagement changed dramatically from one of hand cupping our troops took to allowing the troops to do their job I would imagine the president is not going to allow the Iranians to keep the straits or move on hold hostage and I would imagine that there's going to be an alliance that will engage our rand if this behavior continues and I wouldn't be surprised to something happened as early as today or tonight yeah Shawna I agree with you a hundred percent about the strait of Hormuz I think what we also need to watch for is that Ron amounts asymmetric warfare against us they know they can't go toe to toe with the United States military they'll lose but they get props malicious Lebanese Hizbullah Alicia's in Iraq the young men who these in Yemen they tried to kill the Saudi ambassador here in the United States and so the concern I think in our in our intelligence community and also domestically here in United States will be there to run seeks to mount additional attacks against the nay symmetric warfare on to the Persian Gulf and that is also something that will be looking at and I'm sure you're looking for whether it's back channel or older messaging from our administration if Iran attempt to do that in a tax our people and our installations even via their proxies there will be hell to pay on the Iranian side in their territory we know thank you Dan Hoffmann thirty years CIA ops officer knows around well I know the president's strategy it's not going to be a protracted war it's going to be overwhelming force and they have a lot of allies to do it

I had no idea what they were until yesterday until I brought it up, but Shawn and grown-ups or talking about Spiderman various and hawk men, clearly the bottom. Both my sons thought hawk are you kidding? He's the best one for young boys, the whole bow. And arrow thing is so freaking cool and y-, you know, that they focus group that and that the people who made vendors no you want to get the older crowd. You got to have these kind of things to get an older males young kids. They want something really basically bullish EROs, young boys. That's how you make a billion dollars in three days. Well, all those people from the comical books originally, aren't they mix of arrogance and hard work. Billion dollar note to self refer to movie as the revenge. There's just to annoy people. When you say Star Trek, right? Ventures. Larry you a revenge and game. Yeah. What did you say? I asked if you'd seen you know, that movie. That's yeah. My weekend sun day, two of Biden watch I threw up mouth. I was joking. And I still throw up in my mouth more on everything coming up a little bit. Let's bring the squad to get started. There's our board operator Michelangelo pressing buttons flip and toggles pulling Lieber. Sorry this morning. Michael doing good. This vendors movie reminds me of a Simpson's episode. I saw not too long ago where Homer comes walking out with walking out of the theater, and it was for The Empire Strikes back. And he goes, I can't believe Darth Vader was loose guy. Walker's father, and the line is all all the way down this aisle. For God's sakes. Beautiful. Are there big spoilers in this Sean not in the sense of how it ends? But just in in the sense of how it plays out that you can certainly lose some of the joy of experiencing it for the first time. Yeah. Because my life who doesn't know anything about the movies. Either said she kept seeing on Facebook of various things don't spoil it because it's so important to not know going in the movie studio itself, which is uncommon did an active please note spoil this for other people campaign, which was kind of strange, I guess there was some leaking that happened to that they were trying to corral. Well, that's the deterioration of American culture in the fact that you have to tell people to not ruin movies for others before they go to get a point out to them. What of MRs? Yeah. There is positive Sean who smile lights up the remind your show doing very well. I am fresh off of three hours of not as much punching as you would think, but when the punching happen, so it's big punching. And so my we'll we'll get into it. More later on.

You may make you may miss them hand waving explanation of time travel, but that's fine. Just accept the time travels thing and you'll be okay. That's a that's a good hack right there, Wendy urinate during the vendors. Yeah. Is it a specific character? It's I was talking. Is there a specific like when Hoffmann says, oh my God. I forgot my Aero's or anything. Tip. You wanna give anybody or what? So in the middle act. They kind of. No spoilers here. But teams kind of break up, and then they kind of focus on little pairings of revenge is I'm sorry. Okay. So at any point in ad if you get the old the bladders colony when they were with a group that you're not really that interested in I would say go go during that time.

"If it's wrong, we should still hammer at the reductions approach because we're moving icons. So as Hoffmann says, he says just because the desktop trash icon on my computer desktop isn't literally trash icon, and I'm not dragging real documents into it that doesn't mean drag my life's work into it and hit delete just because I don't take it literally doesn't mean. I don't take it seriously. So yeah, we take our I constantly. We should know all about them. But we're gonna hit a wall. And I think we're getting there in our understanding because until we understand what is the fundamental nature of reality. We're not gonna be able to manipulate it in a way that reduces suffering, which I think is what we're trying to do. Right. When you talk about health span, you're talking about the longest possible life with the most enjoyment or happiness or fulfillment whatever's there. Individuals goal is to me, that's like a lack of suffering. No one wants to live to suffer unless you're Bedia som bondage person, and even that's not suffering because it's actually pleasure for them. So suffering is a mental construct pain is eternal suffering is optional because it's how frame it. We think I don't know. It's hard for me to to actually internalize that because I mean, letting go of subatomic structures as sort of not being real w require a lot more understanding on my part. Let me say this subatomic structures are absolutely realize icon. So in other words, they mean something they're an image. I think trying to imagine that they have their own state of consciousness is you know, it's not even for me to under. It's not even that so K lemme lemme dig into that a little bit. Because does something that I have to think about a lot that's a dualist belief. So in other words, the subatomic structure electron is an electron with some awareness. That's a belief called dual ISM. It means that there is matter and there's consciousness in there. Related what Hoffman saying what I think I into it from this is I'm could absolutely be wrong and people get violently disagreeable to this idea. There's no electron at all electron is a conscious agent that we see as electron through our species specific interface. It's how we've all to see the world we see it as and we don't ever see electrons. We use a quick -ment to Intuit them. But then how would we explain physical experiments that have independently validated the same construct, meaning so for example when Newton came along. He was the first to define a set of physical laws, and they held pretty well until the early part of the twentieth century when at one layer below the Newtonian understanding, there was a new layer of physical laws that had to be described many of these laws have been independently validate in and I would think that if it was all. A hack meaning if we were all creating our own construct our own icons, it strikes me as improbable that we would be converging on the same descriptions the same experimental identification. This is a great way to think about it. And here's how I would think about that. We have our hack, but it's based on reality and reality is these conscious agents exchanging experience with each other. We see it as the laws of physics. We see it as an electron binding to this and this chemical reaction happening. And of course, it will be validated because it's actually happening in the sense that these agents are behaving relations to each other in predictable precise ways that we can measure and science can quantify, but wait, but why would the electrons protons behave in a predictable way? When you and I can't behave in a predictable because we don't behave predictably Peter because we are complex and stanchions of multiple conscious agents that that emerge very. High level of consciousness, so part of the reason you have these voices that are telling you your asshole. And I have them is that we have that are unconscious to us agents that are making decisions in the background. That are feeding it up to our higher stanchion is very unpredictable complex system..

You're not even conscious of all the things you avoid every day because you're afraid of getting hurt. I mean, I guess I could I could step out of a moving car. If I saw somebody yelling at his girlfriend in front of a club. Right. That kind of thing. Well, yeah. But also like you don't in the fight right there. If you see some guy fall out of a car and roll over and hit a brick wall. And then he gets up and he's like, hey bothering you. Hey, why don't you be nicer to your girlfriend? Hey, hey, buddy. I think you're using while you're swears while you're the yourself. But buddies wealth is not one that anyone would choose. I I don't think I wanted and that's why it's a fictional trope. Because you see these people who were like they've apparently never seen anybody. Swap comedies, right. Right. Because none of them are like, oh, this is like a freaky Friday thing. Well, what kid would ever say? I wish my mom could just be inside my body for a day. She that show her. The funny thing is a completely arbitrary device that we know will never happen. No scientific basis for it. I mean, the bodies while comedy the soul transference presume, some kind of cartesian dualist, right? Where your mind your consciousness exists out with your body, and it can just get mapped onto any other body with no difficulties, and that's that was very appealing in the seventeenth century. But I think today we know that your consciousness intrinsically in the nerves of your head, and you couldn't just drop your conscious into someone else's brain. And they would be you'd have to physically transplant the brain which never happens in these movies. Nobody ever gets their heads sawed off, but it fit. Well. No, that's true. But unless I'm missing some part of I never saw the Disney channel Shelley long Gaby Hoffmann head transplant that transplant off. At some. They're both weirdly stitched on sewing thread. No. But is that? I mean, it seems like it is kind of written into reincarnation that your soul would insult form cleansed of memory, but the same soul, the memory, but son, how you're you. Yeah. You're you, and you would transfer from body to body, but in other in other religious traditions is there any instance, where the I mean, even if you don't believe in if you just believe that your spirit is going to survive your body. Right. I mean that does somehow imply that, but it never is lead. It's not transferrable to. I mean, got it. No point puts you in someone else. It's book of job like scenario got on the devil, or like, you know, what would be funny Shelley long as very up tight executive, and she does not get along with her daughter. Yeah. It's the soul survives the body. But they're only a few places it can go. It can go to heaven or you can go to. Well, yes, it can't just like wonder the earth. The clearly it's not just an effect of how it feels to have a bunch of neurons firing because it can survive the neurons stopping right? Even in most western religious traditions in my tradition. Mormonism the sole actually predates the body. We all lived before we came here as well. So clearly that's something that can come get imposed on a head somehow, and then leave again, we'll also you can I mean, you're in the after world you are affected by things that are happening on earth.

"Yeah, I don't know. I, here's the thing that gets me about this. It's part of your body like you grew, it made it eight like an Oregon, and, but what they're saying is that it's chock full of hormones and all sorts of stuff. So that what the belief is that if you eat it, like people believe that it can cure different things or do different things. Okay, I, there is no, here's the thing about this. There is no proven medical statistic that states that it is bent. Official, but people are doing it. And when I say people are doing it most recently Jan January Jones, several of the Kardashian women Gaby Hoffmann Holly Madison Mayan Balik Samantha b Alicia SilverStone. Tamp tamra, Maui. These are celebrities that are in the like in like like big time. Celebrities, they are eating their placenta. Many of whom have decided to eat, eat it via freeze, being freeze, dried and put into pill form. Okay. I do that probably I could if it was in a pill form and I just had to swallow it and I didn't have to chew it and taste it. I feel like I could do that if it had benefits and clearly like they're doing it. So why are they doing Feng that people believe preparing the placenta in eating until form will help prevent postpartum depression should've had some see they. They do however, say this OBGYN says, we don't have any good conclusive evidence that. Ever even does that? Well, I, I don't know. I don't know. Do you think it might have a placebo effect? Like if they think that by taking it helps them with their depression. I'm all for it. If that's the case it that could be so, but here's the thing I want to take a caller and I wanna know if anybody out here has eaten there placenta and if you have or if you know someone who has, I'd like to know why you did it not judging. No, no look, you wanna eat a placenta. Eat your own placenta. But I mean, if you wanna eat a placenta, eat placenta. I'm just saying that st- scientifically they've not proven this to be something that has benefits or or whatever. So I'm just saying call in tell us. It says it could be harmful. Well, yeah, we'll get to that. Sorry. Yeah, your service anytime, see anything medical like, oh, forget it would never. We're going to web MD says it's bad empty. I've googled it. They'll call in and tell us if you if you know anybody or if you've eaten a placenta. I'm just curious to know because I don't know if more people are doing it or if it's just because some of these high profile celebrities have been that it's back in the news, but people are saying that they're doing it. So I find it. I don't know. I find it interesting, but we can talk while we wait for a caller. We can't talk about that. One of the obi's who wrote this article said that if the baby developed to any type of infection while in utero that passes onto the placenta. So then if you do need it, you could get something like strep or another type of infection. If you ingest it syphilis e. coli talk. So plasma Gondal Zeke virus. So. Plasma Gondal yet. You know exactly what that is. I don't, but it sounds terrible. Okay, I'm there's all kinds of natural things going on that maybe the technical medical professionals don't think works, but a lot of people who are natural holistic believe in, and I technically tend to believe in things that may be your typical medical people don't like I'm into crystals and weird stuff like that because I feel like it has healing properties so I can understand how somebody might think this works as well.
