The Streisand Effect: When Censorship Backfires
"Where does Barbara streisand live or where she once live? I said, Charlie, what does that have to do with anything? Barbara streisand has a big house or had I don't know if she still lives there. And Barbra Streisand was very upset that a certain photographer who wanted to try and catalog the erosion of the California coastline happened to photograph Barbra Streisand's home. Barbra Streisand did everything she possibly could to try to remove this. Barbara streisand was very upset that anyone would dare photograph her home. So this was put on the Internet and Barbra Streisand found out that her house was photographed. She said this was a violation of privacy. Now mind you, this was literally just some environmentalists that was taking pictures of the coastline. So Barbra Streisand realized this and up until she decided to do something about it the image was downloaded 6 times. 6 people were interested in her home. But once she filed a lawsuit to try to prevent anyone from finding out where the house was, the picture became international news and was downloaded 420,000 times in the following month. The lawsuit was eventually dismissed because there really is no violation of privacy to photograph what you can see in a helicopter. This started something known as the streisand effect. It's a phenomenon that occurs when an attempt to hide, remove or censor information, has the unintended consequence of increasing awareness of that information. Often via the Internet. This is exactly what is happening right now with Merrick Garland and the national school board association. In an attempt to censor moms and dads to show up to the school board meeting, just like how Barbra Streisand wanted to censor her home from being on the Internet. We're only 6 people went and saw it. As a result of that and the national school board association and Merrick Garland going after, the grassroots push of parents that have started to care about what's happening to their kids education. We are now seeing more people talk about the national school board association story than ever before.
Merrick Garland Is the Current Hired Gun of the Craven Ruling Class
"Today, Merrick Garland is doing a hearing in front of the House judiciary committee. Merrick Garland is being asked certain questions that he doesn't even know the specifics of what he does his attorney general is exactly what bob Mueller did when he was the appointment, where they have these elderly kind of elderly old men that have had long resumes and careers, Merrick Garland being a federal judge, bob Mueller, think bubble around the FBI, and he's something like that. And then they use them as puppets and they manipulate them to wage domestic war on us. Merrick Garland, you have to understand what you're dealing with here. Is the current hired gun of the craven ruling class. Merrick Garland is the placeholder of all of the entrenched interests. Merrick Garland oversees the department that spied on Donald Trump illegally oversees the department that had Peter struck and Lisa page. James Comey, Merrick Garland is the placeholder unelected by the way no one showed up in huge numbers to go elect Merrick Garland to be able to write letters to say to the national school board to acknowledge the letter from the national school board association, say, you know what? We need to go use the FBI the Department of Justice to go after moms and dads that are showing up in big numbers to school board meetings. Now, Republicans are doing their job here by overseeing Merrick Garland. They're conducting oversight. And a lot of this is just words. But Merrick Garland is not used to being challenged like this. I listen to some of the hearing this morning and I could tell you this is a man who just like bob Mueller is only a placeholder and is being used and manipulated by other treacherous and other malevolent interests. To try to weaponize the federal government in the United States.
Former Georgia Rep. Doug Collins on Trump's Appeal and Biden's Weakness
"Book, Doug Collins is with us former Republican congressman from Georgia on the subject of Donald Trump. This week, a quinnipiac poll came out showing that Donald Trump actually is more popular with registered voters than Joe Biden. One mainstream media outlet said, shock poll. Trump 41% favorability. Biden 40%. The only thing shocking is that anybody thought it was shocking. Yeah, but what do you expect? I mean, this is the media who's been obsessed with this. I mean, they have been in really what I almost say is a catatonic sit almost, except they're not laying prone and abandon where they're out actually screaming all the time since he came down the escalator to start with. Now, whether you know, again, no matter where you came from or where you started, Donald Trump has a way of connecting with the American people that it is still very prevalent in the poll is not shocking. When you have a president such as Joe Biden. I mean, just look at the contrast. President Trump, like I said, no matter what side of the fan she failed on. And for those of us who supported him, he would get, he would engage with the media he would fight back. He would give you his answers whether you liked or not. Joe Biden comes up reads a 7 minute statement. If he's going to take questions while I can't talk to you, or most of the time, though, the picture of this administration is him turning around and walking off without ever answering a question. There's no wonder. By the way, when people go to the gas bombs and at three and $4 gas when they see their shells in their grocery store with nothing on them when they see all of this going on inflation rising and they keep hearing this kind of elitism coming out of this White House. I'm surprised Joe Biden, frankly, you know what the shock pole for me is that it's 40%. No kidding. Yeah, I would think it would be about
Don Lemon Flips Out on Democrats: 'Get It Together!'
"The Democrats are imploding. You don't believe me? Well, listen to a crazy radical leftist on CNN. Named Don lemon. Don incidentally, if you watch Tucker Carlson, you might think his name is Don LeMond because for some reason Tucker always says Don lemon, but it's non lemon. And he's a host on CNN. And he lost it last night at the Democrats. Abject failures, the Biden agenda is on the brink and people like Don lemon of CNN know it. Republicans and the former guy, most of the Republicans are in office right now. Are going around the country. And they are winning with a lie. They're able to get people on their side with a total lie and Democrats can't get people motivated with the truth that will help them. The truth that will set them free. So what is going on with you? Why are you so bad at politicking? Why are you so bad at politics, Democrats? When you had the winning message, when you have the Senate and you have the Congress and you have The White House and you can't win with a winning message, something is wrong. And it's not that the Republicans are doing this and that they're better at the messaging than you are. That's what it is. It's not the Republicans fault. It's your fault. You have your self to blame Democrats. Get it together. Uh oh, they're falling apart over at CNN. Oh, really, the left has the winning message. Let me do it Joe Biden whisper for the benefit of Don lemon. You don't have the winning message. Americans are seen through it.

Former ICE Director Tom Homan Answers the Question: Is the U.S. Border Closed?
"The border is closed according to the man who runs the Department of Homeland Security for the senile old Giza in The White House who sadly bears the title president of the United States. I think I have somebody in studio who begs to differ. We are one on one with none other than that truth teller extraordinaire, former director of ice Tom Holman. Welcome here in America first. Thanks for having me, Seth. Appreciate it. So you were there? For how many years 31? 34 and a half, I'm 35. 34 and a half year serving this nation in numerous facilities, securing the border is the border closed like secretary Mallorca's just said in front of Congress. Absolutely not. And they need to take action. Look, he's under oath. I don't know how he's going to say the borders closed. We all seen the videotape. Look, 600,000 illegal aliens have been released into the country by CBP. 600,000 releases. And that's not counting who ice is releasing at the order of political pointees when the DHS. So at least 600,000 releases that came across that border were released. Many with COVID, manual criminal histories. Add to that, the 400,000 just short of 400,000 galways. Right there as the man

Disrespect: There’s No Other Way to Describe How Little the Biden Administration Thinks of the American People
"The New York Post editorial board had posted a great editorial. It's fairly brief. But honing in on that word disrespect, the post writes, there's no other way to describe how little the Biden administration and Democrats in general think of the American people. Asked about secret late night shuttling of illegal immigrants to various parts of the country. White House spokesperson Jen Psaki made a joke about the flight times saying they were earlier than you might like. Ashton got a supply chain crisis, upsetting the economy and driving up inflation. She quipped that it was the tragedy of the treadmill that's delayed. Americans care about how many illegals are being led into the country. The White House crew doesn't care. It's not a law or rule. They want to enforce. Americans care about whether they'll be able to buy holiday gifts and how much they're paying for groceries. Democratic officials don't care, it doesn't affect them, Psaki thinks you're waiting on a peloton when you're trying to feed your kids. How infuriatingly insultingly out of touch they are. Writes the New York Post editorial board. So Kamala Harris takes a jet and a gas guzzling SUV to lecture us about climate change. President Biden wished for scolds us about COVID, then walks maskless through a restaurant. The rules aren't for them, of course. And the media wonder, who are the deplorables who vote against these betters? Who would reject this obviously superior course? Who will kick the Democrats out of their majority next fall? The post says it's that great swath of America that is sick of being patronized by these arrogant elites. It's not a joke, Jen Psaki, no one is

I am talking with the president of resorts world. Las vegas scott sabella now. Sadly summer's ending in fall is coming up. Are there any promotions or events coming to resorts world. Las vegas that people should know about. Yeah again. Theater is going to be opening november. we're going to be opening our nightclub In the next thirty sixty days. So we're excited announce that we are going to be opening again. This fall so a lot of things are still coming down the road that were excited to introduce because they're completely different than i think what people are accustomed to you know we try to break the mold. We built the property. We we committed and not to do anything traditionally. How can we do it differently in today's world and i think people are really going to be excited when they see the spa spirits when they see our nightclub and what we're bringing over from asia and our programming it and then again the theaters going to be a big hit for us and the type of entertainment. We're gonna have a lot of exciting things coming What i would say now is. It's been a great opening but Doing this for a long time when you open your property this big you still have a lot of little things and a lot of fires to put out. We're still drinking a fire hose here. It's only been a month. We've been so busy So just fine tuning everything and getting things ready Throughout the summer and get the place run. You know perfectly the way it's supposed to is what we're looking forward to and it's we're almost there. We see a lot of light at donal. Now via gaming attorney. I tell people that being the president of a casino is one of the most difficult jobs you can have. I mean you're responsible for the casino. The hotel entertainment stores restaurants. You have new technology especially in such a huge property like resorts world. I mean basically everything on the property is your responsibility. Is this one of the most challenging jobs you. I've ever had in the gambling industry. I would say it's the most challenging because we had to build it and get an open But you're right all those. Those are roles of what the president does. But at the same time you know. My biggest role. I think is is the is the morale and the floor. Cream culture with employee's so that's and you can't get sidetracked and not focus on that so remember. We're up another property with culture so we spent a lot of time. Employees been working really really hard the managers because it's just been overwhelming with the Volume of people that we've had here so that's where we're spending our time at the same time where we're working on all the little things that we need to fix Right it could be challenging. And i think what what what really helped me is done for so long as the surround myself with really strong people and i was very lucky to bring some some great executives up and down the strip and we're up to get some good management here because of what happened with cova and all the layoffs birla's so it really gave us a head start with the experience that we have here resorts world But it's been challenging. You know we'd never stopped building through the the pandemic we got down to maybe twelve hundred construction workers but we got right back up to four thousand We were always committed to get property open for the city And we stuck to that but but we got to cove it. i guess. That's what sounds about my job is. We're trying to get everything fine tune and then we are with the new mandate that everybody has to wear masks So we're we're trying to do our best to get our employees to get vaccinated And we're and we're following the rules and all the guidelines that were given. But i'd say that's as being the boss these properties. It's just you know what's next and i. I always tell people. I can't imagine i was building mr two. And a half. Three years and these other properties we're trying to Survive and as you know. They closed down the strips. I can't imagine what's office had to go through their through that time And and Open it doesn't have to get things get better scott. We're running out of time. But what is the best way for someone to book a stay at resorts world. Las vegas exactly what you said. Go to the website to some really cool things on the website.

"So far it's going very well. You're certainly right that that is my next question. Is that one of the challenges of getting people number one to use it and number to get people continually using it. I mean i. I'm from new jersey. I remember my grandmother jumping on the star. Bus and trenton and they gave her twelve dollars. Quarter then go go at the slot machines but it is that one of the challenges getting the older maybe less technologically adapted people to really get involved with this technology. It's definitely challenge but always refer back to the tito ticket with slot machine. You guessed it and said it's never gonna work. People want to hear the coins coming out of machines and they want to put them their buckets and look at us today. It's all cashless. Accordingly so It's it started with employees so we had educate them burst. 'cause the dealers aren't used to it now. The dealer before customer cashes out they can explain it to him and you know our goal is always trying to give him a tito ticket or educate them on their phone before we give them their chips to take to the cage and cash out things like that so and when you're really busy it's hard to really educate the consumer because you know the blackjack table has been so busy lately but when it slowing down a little bit with with what's going on but so we're able to talk to the guest more and we'll take a little time But it also helps you with procedures throughout the property. So we always know what's in the Table game in iraq You don't have as many fields. You know where the chips are deserve our idea. It's easier at the cage and things like that so makes the the processing much much easier and state of the art when you're operating to casino dot like we used to operate back in the days. Okay hold.

Sure it's there's probably Just just over a hundred gaming floors across the country now in across the provinces from the burst colombian lower mainland where there's Some very robust Great properties the rock casino in richmond which is great resort entertainment to Terrific offerings in. Alberta is twenty seven casinos in the province better is With a wide variety of lobby. Some really new properties have been built their lately and As you come across on -tario which is the largest province in the country Decide fifty million people. Live here and to caesars. Windsor mohegan Companies are operating in niagara falls with two properties that Casino niagara falls resort We've hard rock which is just getting hopefully soon going to be building new property in ottawa area. So and Obviously greek canadian which is the largest company in the country Twenty one floors. They just opened a brand new casino on the east end of toronto This week It was supposed to open in april twenty twenty and obviously didn't get all of these reasons And you know it's a brand new facility it still has a hotel entertainment facilities still to come but there's a wide variety of offerings. And you know it's it's it's Predominantly locals Business if you want to call it is regional destinations Seven except for caesars windsor. Which drives a lot of their business out of the united states for obvious reasons and falls. You both probably about twenty five percent of their player base. Better the united states Because they sit on. The borders obviously niagara falls huge tourism destination. The twelve million people a year and the casino criminally visits. You so it's Pretty popular place now when it comes sports betting canada just past see to eighteen into law which allows what we call single game betting up but before this particular bill. Canada had sports betting but was a different kind of sports betting. Can you explain what. Canada had before this passage of the new law. Sure we it. Basically what it was because the restriction the criminal code said. You can't bet on the outcome of a single sporting events and so Gimme candid kind. Grew out of Provincial lottery corporations these government agencies that often lottery products and those companies those organizations evolved to some offering casinos and building casinos to now online offerings The lowest part of this was a sports product sports. We always refer to sports lottery in lottery. Bamyan opera words for me because They're mostly selling it a three-game parlays As a minimum bet and you know the margins really good Which means the customer really didn't like it very much and and so that park was doing you know total wages book five hundred million a year and hadn't really grown hadn't really evolved much But the can't in canada because of the growth hormone gaming we have what we often referred to as a very strong gray market because the laws in canada around internet gaming want clear and weren't clear from a couple of a lot of corporations were free to get into the business. And maybe i can be larry corporation to their plano dot com jerry robust platform It's it's They do a really good job. The very good sports. I they just don't have seen in denver and others haven't had much on sports product at all but online gaming grew and you should canada's our law talked about the provinces having jurisdiction over gaming within their jurisdictions and it's the within the jurisdiction so i go to bed three six five and we're and i place my bet. Well my placing it in stoke-on-trent uk me in my living room where i live in toronto and the laws not clear and and most lawyers legal opinions were offering no. It's actually probably not occurring in canada and which means can't enforce the laws extra-territorially so there was this version gray market to the tune of a total hanikos. Gross wager on sports alone was over. Four billion annually You know gaming and in sports together officer companies are making about a billion dollars. A year. I can and no one was doing. Stop kerr recently. So things are.
"house" Discussed on Tiny House Lifestyle Podcast
"Yeah i mean the first thing is just getting comfortable with the fact that you might not be very good. I think that's the main thing like as adults we. We don't like looking stupid. We don't like doing things. Were not good at and so the first step is just kind of being like okay. I'm gonna like. I'm i might suck at this at first but there's no way to get better and and like take the skill pete. I mean if you're building a house you'd probably want skill. But like i like. Don't worry too much about that. And just all your enthusiasm and learn as you go and then of course getting the right guides and the right accountability and the right experts in your life and yeah i don't i don't know if i have anything beyond that that's great. I think i think that's a really important thing. Because most adults aren't used to being new at something. Yeah or not being good at something. I think we are. Natural tendency is to like grow older and just kind of not want to learn new things. Because it's it's threatening to be beginner. It can also be really helpful to get around other people who are doing different things in new things and trying stuff whether or not. It's the same thing that you're working on and to just get her and other people who aren't going to judge you and we'll be encouraging that can be and also you know if you want some accountability that can be really helpful to yeah and and i'm going to throw in a shameless plug for my online community. Tiny house engaged so for those tiny house people who are looking for that accountability and support and being around other people who are into it. I've got. I've got the community for you. What about You mentioned like dealing with family members. Because i think that that's but there's a parallel there to the tiny house world in that like. Why can't you be normal like everyone else and just have a one career. Why can't you be normal like everyone else and like buying a normal house like right. Yeah i mean so with the multi. Potentialities thing i've i've interviewed a lot of people about this and when family member isn't one hundred percents about particular direction or just the fact that you keep changing directions or whatever or that you're doing many things from the people have spoken to like once they figure it out and their family like sees it there. Okay usually they. They drop it. Sometimes they even get enthusiastic. And they're like crowd of you but they're just too usually they're worried they're just worried like oh. If this person doesn't specialize are they going to be successful or are they going to be able to pay the bills if they're doing many different things splitting up their focus. There's a lot of like you know jack of jack-of-all-trades master of none sort of things in the culture that people here in assume to be true and there aren't we don't really think of like multi potential role models there many out there but like the. It's not like something people think about. So usually it's like parents are concerned family member that found him reserve concerned. And then once you show them that it's okay like it's working you're happy you've got like awesome dynamic career. You're paying the bills like usually they back off if they don't like you gotta live your life and like be. Do you write like yeah. I don't know if there's a parallel there. Tiny house thing. I i see it. I mean i think that that is also sometimes what happens with with tiny houses. Now it's like the concept of a tiny house is much more widely understood so it's less It's less weird. yeah But i think that for me on once people you know when you say i wanna build a tiny little house my question that but then like once they see it or once they kind of see taking shape they understand that it's they see that it's fine and that you're you're gonna be okay. Yeah yep one thing that like that. I've noticed in the in the tiny house world. Is that a big driver of why people want to live. Tiny is that they ultimately. Don't wanna have to work as much. Because they don't as their work doesn't necessarily define who they are as people and i'm is. Is there a parallel there. Is that like a multi pod. Kind of thing. Yeah I think it depends. Yeah i so. I've interviewed like dozens and dozens of multi pods. And i've also. I've been working like us for a decade so i've spoken to a lot of people and everyone's structures their career a little bit differently like i. I had found some patterns. And i can talk about that but the main thing is that people find a way to get the money meaning and variety. They need into their lives. And sometimes people find one job that has all those factors in it other times people pair together multiple revenue streams couple part time jobs or businesses. Run their own one business. They run other times. Someone will have sort of like a good enough job. And then they'll explore all their passions on side of people. Find different ways of doing this but you know some people. It's it's really important to them what they do for. Money reflects like the entirety of who they are and for other people. That's not as important and they would rather just have a job that's enjoyable. But that also leaves them with free time to explore all their passions without having to monetize everything so it really depends. And i i just see it as like whatever structures you have. As long as you've got the finding the money you need to you know. Meet your financial goals the variety you need to fulfill your multi potential and then like a sense of meaning that you're doing something important whether that's in your paint work or outside of it like that that's all that matters that overall you've got those those factors yeah i that resonates with me certainly and i don't know if it's because i'm steeped in this myself or if i'm like yeah. There real parallels to to tiny house living and tiny houses here. Do people like you. People ever stop identifying multi potential lights. I mean probably definitely. There are people who are very involved in our community and don't feel like they need the support as much rain or they find something like one thing and they're like actually. I'm just going to focus on that. But yes i mean i guess i feel like like i'm kind of envisioning like okay. So somebody who is a multi pod who was like had a bunch of different hustles and was like cobbling together. Their income gets like one job. That's like kind of like a specialist job. But they're still like. I am kind of like okay. I don't live in my tiny house anymore. But i certainly identify as a tiny house dweller. Still like i've. I've brought the lessons of that forward into what.
"house" Discussed on House of Cards
"Welcome back to house of cards. They shouted with you for those of you just joining us. We're talking with simon chalk. Whiskey who has written a very interesting book called gamblers. Dharma sports betting with vedic astrology. You know we talked about this with regard to location. We do another show turnpike sports and gave some amazing predictions. I benefited from one of your predictions. By the way. Thank you seattle and thank you cyber. Yeah there you go but when you talking about location and we talked at another time you mentioned interval individual players will perform differently depending on when and where they play and this led us to be thinking. Would it be beneficial for an athlete or team to consultant astrologer before he signs with a particular team. Do you know of any athletes who actually consulted with astrologers before joining a team. That is a great question though. I personally don't I work with I don't work with the kings and queens into world. Typically although i've seen a couple of hollywood celebrities and whatnot but typically i work with mom and pop clients But in my opinion the hundred bucks or whatever you spend two seat consult with an astrologer before making you know multi-million dollar move or trade is worth it i mean it it's well worth it Because yeah different. Locations will affect you. So i think even playing cards if you go to a tournament in vegas and you know you do well you may go to tournament jersey or somewhere else and just stink up the room and part of that could be related to the may not be but it's possible that it's related to the fact that in jersey. You just have found lines. You've got back stuff going on there that you do for you so that you don't do as well and we can identify agrees new jersey. I feel terrible now. No no no no by the way anyone can do this for themselves. There's a site you can go to. I don't know if it's okay to refer it just not my type this general. It's not It's a cycle. Astro dot com. You go to Free horoscopes and then you click on astro click travel Because typically we use to figure out where people can travel and have a good time and where you know. Areas nation devoid. Click on that. Enter your data and then you see all of your lying across the globe and then any way you click. It'll interpreted for you and it'll tell you hated great for business.

Great for love for you and she and she started lot. Why are you laughing in my husband's from portland maine. And she had never been there her. Her husband love had come to her from portland maine in and likewise where you have a jupiter lines where you're lucky though when it comes to gambling you wanna look to where your jupiter line and so when you find that go to those places try it out. He would happen. I've done it. You know i for me through. Puerto rico and Years ago. When i landed in puerto rico. I didn't speak spanish. Nothing but and this is a true story. I was on the street corner. And i didn't have any car or anything has gone a motorcycle. I tapped him on the shoulder. It was a red light. I said how much he wants to that bike. He said eight hundred bucks. I pulled it out eight. And he got off the bike. Eight helmet and in and gave me the little things to registration. I got on the bike by the time. The lighter green. I was off and stuff like that happened from yoga. They're like crazy. Like i would not gonna door in people take command we. We've been waiting for you. We need you know physical trainer at the time. We need somebody to help us run the gym intercontinental hotel. I became the manager. Like that where you're jupiter and you can find that it's very easy. It's not it's not difficult. Ab listeners can find. That's that's amazing story. I you know. I never read a book like the one you've written gamblers dharma sports betting with vedic astrology and that uses astrology and it's technique for sports betting. Ask you has this book been well received in the astrology. World has have there been astrologer. Saying hey you you should be using our techniques for gambling purposes or has been well received within the industry there there's a small percentage of astrologist who are a little bit above it all and and little bit high and mighty and actually understand where they're coming from because this is a spiritual scientist meant to empower people and they have the association that's speculation is somehow disempowering and like i said at the beginning can be. If it's not your calling it can be. You can lose. You can lose your house. You know in your mortgage but it's also gotten some great reviews from some professional astrology magazine so yes generally speaking been well received. Well we're running out of time.

"house" Discussed on House of Cards
"Welcome back to the house of cards. Why shuttle with you for those of you just joining us. We are talking with simon chalk. Whiskey who has written a very interesting book called gamblers dharma. Sports betting with vedic astrology in another tomb. You use when analyzing a game is something called victory houses. How does the idea. Victory houses relate to your analysis so so in astrology. There's something called a houses of the horse. Coburg twelve houses and each team gets Six houses That are good for victory in another six. That are that are not attorney sample when the planets are in the house and the victory when i called her victory houses. That's my term by the way for one team and they're not you know and by extension. They're not in the for the other team. Initial which team is stronger i. It's pretty straightforward greek term. Because when i saw victory houses okay. I need to know this if i'm going to win sports betting using astrology. I see the word victory. And i'm attracted to it. Well i gotta tell you. I appreciate you saying that because when i took this on you know my wife and everybody said who he writing this book for. There's only so many astrologers and there's only so many people who bet and you're writing for these me shes and i said you know what i. There's something in my heart. This is driving me to do this. And and and so there. So i'm i'm very heartened that you're taking this to heart yourself. I you know i. It's one of those things it's ancient wisdom that's been around for so long and it's been used around the world and it's just. I'm surprised that more people aren't embracing this from. It's from our ancestors really. Well i'll tell you in the sixties. There was an astrologer in india. His name is krishna. Martine and key up so good to where he had a line around his house like people were trying to buy an iphone like people would would camp out for two or three days in the line would stretch around the neighborhood a couple of times and part of the reason how he got so good was he would play cards and he would test techniques by playing cards and et which time and he was a decent carpenter but you know he was on the best and he would lay during times. That were good for him and then he would have his son so he calculate this beforehand and he he'd have come call him as soon as time. Turn bad to give them an excuse to leave the table. I know that's a crummy thing to do. But you know he was. He was testing and so like at twelve thirty one. It's on the call and he'd say oh. Sorry guys i gotta take my chip in and take off and he got so good. That people wouldn't play with him anymore so he had to start losing on purpose. And and this is a true story by the way this You can verify this yourself. His name was chris murky and he developed a system to where he could time even down to the our you know which periods favorable for you. Which period isn't and You know. I'm not as good as i studied system and i try to follow along but there are really people like that who've gotten with who had got this stuff down really to a science Yeah i'm surprised too but Also it's very difficult i it like. I said it was only the best minds into whole days. Who who would do this stuff. and these days Not so much for those of you just joining us. We are talking with simon chalk. Whiskey who has written a very interesting book called gamblers dharma sports betting with vedic strategy. Okay now we understand the terms dharma types and we get the concept of victory houses as i said. It's the process. What is your next step when trying to determine the outcome of a game using vedic astrology. Yeah good question. So i ended vote there. There are a total lion techniques so the victory houses is one technique and that way i sort of got into it but victory houses move very slowly so basically any game that starts within an hour or so. He's going to have the same configuration and so the victory house technique was working a lot but it was also not working some of the time and i thought why isn't it and so There are more taking their more discreet techniques. It depend on exact. Dr time and When i gave predictions last week I i noted that if this game starts within a couple of minutes of when it's supposed to then we expect this outcome and The more i did this boy found that even seconds can make a difference and So so tiny again back to the timing is everything and if you begin playing or the game begins at a certain time a certain outcome is expected but if it begins a minute later that outcome could be one hundred eighty it can be totally different can be for the other team. How much techniques to figure that out. How much change in time is i mean is if it happens within an hour. It's pretty much the same or can it be changed from minute to minute. Or how is that determined. Honestly minute to minute and As i mentioned earlier the most recent example of this was a cleveland. New york game Baseball last game of their series. Where in my opinion if that game had started one minute earlier. So if you're the manager and you know that you're supposed to start within this time. That cleveland with a one not new york and and by the way This isn't i know that sounds crazy and radical but we spent eight years under the reagan administration having his astrologer time absolutely every meeting. Every you know airplane takeoff and landing according to this principle and his assistant even had to stop watching reagan when it was time to Begin a press conference. When it was time to begin a meeting and his whole president he ran according to this principle so a very conservative conservative man But yet someone who understood Or at least went along with This principle that to everything if you want to Succeeded something starting at the right. I'm really really gives you a leg up sometimes even minute and second. It's amazing how precise that is when when you're talking about time how one minute can change in outcome of something so important well and it hard to believe because you'll never know right. You never know if if if if what the other outcome would have been. Except.

"Being intentional about creating a vision board for what i was looking like what i wanted for my home and i think that really helps if you're going to build whether you're going to build your own or you're gonna get a builder. It's such a helpful resource for you to just have images of that have thought it out into something tangible that you can look at so i would just recommend creating some visual thing for your cell and then really getting clear on what your values are. If you're someone that is not sure you don't have words describe your values you can always google like values assessment just to find words and the words are based on your own definition. This is important because in in my work. What i've seen with people is people that are like either unfulfilled in their life in general or even in their careers. It always comes back to two things. It comes back to not living liking alignment with your values or not. Living life in alignment in a way that honors your strength when you are thinking of making the transition into tiny home living get clearly find resources. Get clear on those values in what your strengths are. Do you can consider that. And the design of your home so that you can be honoring those. Yeah i i ac. Oh that because it is tiny so it kind of locks you in so if your values are like always wanting to have a space to do crafts If if you don't design that space you're not to have it. Yep exactly yup the location and really consider the just your actual physical tiny home but you're in location. And what's in your surroundings uttering your values. Yeah and that's that's another challenge because it can be difficult to find a place to park a tiny home. would you recommend. I mean i guess on your journey you kind of decided on the tiny home first and then you found where you wanted to put it right so we well. We decided on the opposite so we just the location and then we were able to find the home and like why into that location. All right so you you actually found where it would go. And then that helped you kind of envision the whole whole thing yeah and i recommend so when it comes to getting your tiny home the location like before even when people are talking to us about like with other people around helping them designed our tiny homes in the vision of what they want for their home. And i'm always asking like where are you going to put this thing and is it okay with zony like you. I not answer and then we'll talk more about it. Because i think that's just one of the things that you should do sooner or any should be considering before you even get the home built. Yeah yeah yeah. I mean a lot of people many different ways on that some kind of choose to just not find out and not know and just kind of try to slide under the radar but depending on where you go. That might not be possible. Yeah and i've seen working with people who are purchasing homes. I've seen a lot of them. Do the opposite where they they're building their home and then when it comes to putting it somewhere really struggling and there's been times that we we're we're trying to help them figure out where they're going to put it because they haven't thought of that or they don't they did but then they found out zoning that it couldn't go there and it causes more issues so i think consider. Where do you want your tiny home. Consider the weather of that location. A really important as far as how you're building your home and also consider insurance because that's another thing that can you be really tricky for people to find. I'm so do your hut on what that insurance was gonna cover your home. You wanna pinscher inside it. Got it into bernard. Thank you so much. This has been such a great conversation.

"Relates to the rebound of the industry. Yeah i think numbers were just incredible during the pandemic as well as the start of this recovery. Do you think how the gambling industry maneuver through. This pandemic is a subject. We're going to hear more and more about in the future. I mean was this such a traumatic event. That studies will continue for years to come. I hope so. I think that you know it's important to also remember. The you know as every industry looked to washington dc and and and capitol hill and the white house for support We were no different in terms of relief and stimulus and he as a someone who's been in the industry for a long time. You're you know that the gambling industry the gaming industry has not been treated the same as every other business in america. If you go back to you know post nine. Eleven to hurricane katrina the great recession of oh eight and nine and superstorm sandy. In each one of those cases the gaming industry the casino industry was carved out of and discriminated against as it relates to Stimulus and relief and for the first time ever last year in the cares act. We were included in treated the same as every other business. And my view is that because we're in forty five states around the country and the legislators politicians community leaders recognize the important role. We play in the community that they saw what we did during During covid and what we had been doing prior to covid it. We're good community partners and we deserve to be treated the same as all of these other stuff business. Okay hold that thought. We're gonna take a quick break..

"You she can also be found working on a construction project of her own. An island meditation retreat font even us. Welcome to the podcast. Hello ethan thanks for being here This interview i feel like has been in the works for maybe years. Your hard to pin down. And i don't have very good phone reception at most locations. Yes you're actually. We're we're catching you in the airport. Because i guess better cell reception there. So i i really appreciate it and i want to jump right in. There is a video tour of your houseboat. The river dan that has been viewed over three point eight million times. I just want to start -gratulations on that. I would like to say. Congratulations to exploring alternatives on that. That matt danielle did an awesome job on the video and they have a great following of people so really kudos to those guys they have brought so much publicity about. it's awesome. Yeah that that they have been. They've actually. I'll link to interview that i did with them on this show a couple years ago. Now but yeah i agree. They are wonderful. People and their their youtube channel exploring. Alternatives is just a wealth of tiny house inspiration how has how has that affected. Has that affected you like having being that public or being out there so much on the internet. And i'm sure that a lot of bookings have come through people seeing the video but also because of our successor airbnb. Which kind of i guess. I'm not sure if it's really from the video. I'm sure it definitely helps But i think the video has been a lot around the world and not so much like people coming to visit this area of canada. But i think it's inspired a lot of people so that i'm really happy about. Yeah i mean as somebody who lives very close to a body of water You know i'm in vermont. Very near lake champlain. When i first saw the video i was like i want to build a house. Boat and put it on lake champlain. Four and then. I found out that it wasn't that easy to do here. From a legal perspective and also lake freezes and so you know it would be a seasonal thing but enough about me. So i'm curious you know but just just a little side actually. My boats are forced season. They stay frozen in the ice. They're built special floaters that that can handle the The impact of the ice and that are actually built for it. So it's possible. That's so cool. I agree it's possible Logistically but it's more finding or a place that will allow you to keep your boat in winter. You really have to be a pirates. Yeah there's there's not much infrastructure for Yeah or like a framework in in most municipalities rural rural municipalities. Anyway there's you know there's marinas and bigger cities but then you're living at marina west out rain bunch of doc neighbors. It's not the best. So i'm curious if you can take us back to before you built the river. Dan was this something that you did as an entrepreneurial project like you knew you were going to rent it out or was it something that you built thinking that you were going to live in it fulltime. Well i've built it as an entrepreneurial project in part but also just because i wanted to do something cool with the guy. I was dating at the time who was like a full on pirates. He had built these breezy boats. I wanted to have a connection with him. And i wanted to do something together. So great around that time. I bought a an island. And i had started the construction of the meditation center and i knew i needed some extra revenue to pay for the construction project so i had the idea of building a floating tiny home and i hired him in his crew and we designed and built this while they've really built it. I designed them. But yeah we had this awesome project together and so's partly because i was in love and partly because i wanted something i would earn some money and for me. It's always like wrapped up these projects that it's about doing things that i love with people. I love nice like that. So much and the the the river dan i will link to the tour on the show. Notes page it. Is it actually like it. It seems like it was made with such love like there are so many handcrafted details and kind of whimsical things about it that it just. It looks like it would be a really fun place to be with somebody that you love. Yeah we have a really awesome guestbook and it's fund to go in and read all the notes of the people who are so inspired saying there. It's really something special. Nice well Maybe you could just tell us to some basics about the river dan. what how big is it. How much did it cost to build. just come kind of basic stats star gas. So it's thirty three feet long. It's a two story. There's a sleeping walked upstairs which has five foot ceiling and it has some pretty cool designs to be able to move and be within the legal limits On the road. So there's like the roof drops down there's always features that we could've got we we were able to get it from the boatyard to the launch again under the wires and everything. Yeah so has some pretty cool design features in that way. Yes thirty three feet long. Ten feet wide There is a rooftop deck. We actually just had the week colin this last week. Calendar is blocked off because we did a whole re structuring of the roof and added on imports and others. The really big tamraz upstairs. It's pretty cool nice. I don't actually know how much it costs build. But i could tell you that. The floats were twelve thousand dollars. Roughly so there's five custom built floats. That are thirty thirty one feet long. Okay there the special floats at their built. All over the place contracts have How how deals with the manufacturer. Not make them so. We had ours from a company that was in combat care and yet the floats are pretty expensive. But it's like the foundation of the house so it's all relative right. Yeah and so you. Are these the floats that you mentioned a little earlier that they they are designed to be frozen and yes yes. So they're built. It's there's foam at inside it's filled with foam and then the outside is a bs plastic. Which is not actually enclosed. So there's they have the capacity to expand in the ice and water actually goes inside them and it kind of stabilizes things that holds things pretty steady in the water. Okay yeah i was. I was wondering about that. 'cause i'm i'm the kind of person you can get a little motion sick on a on a boat you know. Especially if it's really choppy. So so it sounds like this boat is maybe a little sturdier than than like a boat that you'd go cruising around him. Yeah i mean when you're in the boat it's pretty stable but when you're walking onto the boat from the gangplank all the weight is cantilevered so then like when you're walking on and off the vote moves quite a bit but once you're on the boat you're contained within the balanced point of it pretty much so yeah the center of gravity. You're close to it so it doesn't move that much. But in the waves it moves. Nick get the feeling like i've been on the boat all week doing the renovation and this morning i woke up in my bed which is not an imposed and i felt like i was still moving so if you spend enough time on the water you kind of have a feeling. It's like this motion in your body gets used to it and it's pretty neat. Yeah yeah exactly. I've experienced that feeling before. I'm not i've longtime ago. I was really into surfing and i remember like if i did a lot of surfing in a day that night. You know you're lying in bed and you feel like you're lying on that surfboard in the ocean.

What we provide for people as harvey certification or park mall certification depending on what their needs are especially now with some jurisdictions warning one over the other We've been certifying traditional arby's for about forty years and we said about the process is probably the best adopted until we have an actual oath As far as what we do for. Diy we are able to guide the builder from their design process all the way through finalizing their bill and we have a couple of different ways that we can do this Usually we review their plans in the beginning. We will send them. I there they will get access to. All of the coats will keep track of their progress.

And i think once you see that as as a renter or as even as an owner of a home though that's gonna sit on a site or someone else's property that you do have in here right. Feel a little more empowered. Because you don't think any of that exists. You just think you're you're going from where you live now.

"True true. So is it reasonable. When you're you know. I guess you could say negotiating with someone over a contract. Is it reasonable to ask them to change something in the contract. I think it if if there's something say say the way the way you're paid at work you only get paid once a month. And they have a thirty day termination clause and you wouldn't be able to get another paycheck in say if they terminated you. You wanna make sure that you would be able to at least have a paycheck to move on and you could say. Would you be able to extend that in my case to forty five days i understand i have to get out but if you give me forty five days i'll have a pay check in hand and i'll be able to then have something with me in something to help me with the transition. There are exceptions to rules in communities by federal law in for the americans with disabilities act service animals. You know all those types of things so if you know you have a service animal and you have a small unit. You wanna go to either an rv place or any kind of plate site where it's no pets that can be an exception view. Would be saying to them. I need to have this animal with me. Performs a function for me whether it be emotional are true service and that landlord that leasing company would have to make the exception for you so those couple of examples of where. If there's a hard and fast rule you could ask for the exception and in the matter of service animal or a caregiver who's on age of entitlement to those exemptions by state and federal law got it. Yeah speaking of exceptions here. Where i live in burlington vermont and vermont. In general has a number of laws about leases and tenancy that kind of you know for example like in burlington. A landlord is not allowed to charge a higher rent for a pet. They can take a pet deposit but they can't charge a different rent for a pet though. Like do those laws if somebody does find themselves in a contract that is actually against the state law which which takes precedence like the contract that they signed or the the in the state that says well. You can't have a lease that makes somebody do. Xyz that's one of those situations where And i think it most states in the united states. There's usually a lawyer referral number an eight hundred number that you can call and there may be a nominal charge but if if you have a situation like that where you know you google the laws and burlington and it says one thing and you look at your lease and it says something else you. I would also google lawyer referral service because my firms member of that. And it's it's kinda like a pro bono service that would be a perfect question to pose sue somebody in one of those referral services to say. You know i'm attendant. The law says that. I see i'm being charged. Something different and then you know landlords or held to comply with the laws just like ten minutes or so you know there are ways where you can challenge that short of you know hole big lawsuit you know by getting some of that legal advice and do you offer or have a recommendation of where people can find like sample contracts. Like say. they're you know going to go live in their tiny house in someone's backyard and the person's like oh i don't really have a contract you can you bring me one or is it are there. Do these exist out there. And is there a good source for them i have. I don't know of one particular source but usually in any jurisdiction view go online and put in sample. Landlord tenant lease. You'll get a whole bunch and it's usually from law firms that our landlord tenant lawyers and you would be able to at least get an idea of basic terms and it's usually start date how much you're going to pay what the basis for termination is and if there's a security deposit and you would be able to just look at that framework and it doesn't really have to be much more complicated than that. So you know. I hate to say. Google is a source. But if you google that tight. Landlord tenant lease or sample lease. And it comes up with the law firm. At least that's a little more reliable situation than the way used to go to the library. Find something that said leases and you know. Pull out some antiquated your party. The first party of the second part document you know. It's a lot more available and accessible online now green so i also wanna get into this. We've been talking a lot about communities and kind of leases and where you're living but the other big topic is around you know entering into a contract to have a tiny home built for you. Yeah and i'm curious. What are some of the issues that you've seen in in that realm Probably the best way to tackle that is not having payments in sync with Like what the builders doing as far as the bill so it up like giving fifty percent down and fifty percent at the end without any steps in the middle to like for example You know a certain certain percentage or certain amount when the you get the floor plan. A certain percentage you know when the walls are up when the electrical goes in when the plumbing goes in so that it's not just one chunk of payment and you pray everything gets done until you make the second payment. You want a stair. Step that so that you get proof of what's happening with the first payment. The second payment the third payment and the critical factor is. There are a lot of people who don't even know what their electrical plan is in their house or the plumbing layout so that if they have problems with those types of those parts of that house the the contractor repair person that comes in literally have to take part figure out where the electrical system is. Or where where the junction boxes are. That may be the cause of the problem. So you definitely want to have the payments timed so that you're getting what you need as the owner to show that that work has been done and there are certification companies out there. That can do that. But you wanna hold them to the same requirement you know. They are certification companies. But you should be getting proof of inspections you know all along through that process. Not just you get certificate at the end that the home meets all the requirements be roadworthy and all of that all certification companies do things in a timely fashion through the bill. So you wanna make sure that your timing your payments with them as well with production of what proof of.

"Foot House. That we did. We didn't even know what we're GonNa do with the time. We thought we might rent outs, but we ended up falling in love with your neighborhood and. How close we were to downtown, so we ended up just living in that that hundred square foot house, but we would never done that. If we had never built tiny house, he wouldn't have even known that that was an option. Did. You find navigating living in two houses to be challenging. For us, it worked out fine, and because we built our tiny house. Kind of intentionally to be sort of a three season house. We knew we were never going to live in it. In the worst of the winter of course winter North Carolina's never go worse, but we still knew that it wasn't going to be that place so for us. It really wasn't that big a transition Vata transition. We just use the tiny house. Now is a getaway place to go place. In we're glad we have but seven hundred square foot house. Absolutely fit our lifestyle. It's not too big. Is exactly what we wanted made it exactly what we wanted, so I'm grateful that we have. In our lives. Yeah, absolutely I'm. Just smiling because it's like I I feel like I'm so parallel. To where you're at like we've. We've done the tiny house thing. We're also in a like. Seven hundred fifty square foot condo in Burlington which is like. It's small. It's challenging. Surprising leads like tiny houses actually easier to be in because it's way better thought out than this place. But It it, it is interesting like. I, feel like you've also. Kind of. Financially, it seems been able to open up your your life to more possibilities because you've lived below your means that you've you've done the tiny house thing. That that was always the goal, and I hope we've succeeded in that. It's it's given up so many more opportunity using you mentioned at the very beginning. Right now we're living in Decatur Georgia because Matt decided to go to law school. Again we would have never done that if we had never built a tiny house. You know we're not? We're not in our twenties. We you know this is not a decision that we're graduated from college any house. Went to law school this over a decade that we have come to this conclusion, so. You know the fact that we can even dig this is.

"Telling me that cleaning it out was a product for a rainy day I moved cautiously in the darkness, not wanting to bump into anything or accidentally break something. The music continued to play softly coming from the left side of the room. The basement ran the length of the entire house, making it seem impossibly large, especially filled with so many things. Old Furniture, large portrait's and boxes upon boxes, needed a pseudo maze full of family memories. After some careful navigating I found myself standing in front of a solid wall, or rather a wall with metal, shelving lining the length of it. I stopped in my tracks and listened. Music still played, but it sounded more toward the right. I swung my flashlight in the direction and slowly walk that way stopping every few steps to listen again. The source of the music was close. Here I looked at the metal shelf against the wall and confusion. Taking a brief look around. That didn't seem to be anything of importance on the shelf itself. Just a bunch of old junkins boxes perhaps in house this old. The Acoustics were playing tricks on me. Was it actually coming from somewhere else entirely? I began to make my way back toward my sister when I heard a crash behind me. I quickly turned and direct my beam on the floor. Lying, there was box one that have fallen near where I was just standing. Did I do that. Did a knock something off balance without realizing causing it to fall. Just be on the box spot an old pair of shoes. On their own, they wouldn't have caught my eye, but. It looked like they were attached to a pair of pants. I slowly moved my beam up. And those pants turned into a man's overcoat. A feeling of dread formed in my stomach has my brain began to formulate that it wasn't just a random assortment of clothing bunched together in the dark basement, but rather something else entirely someone else entirely. My flashlight beam continued its slow ascent up the coat. Dread continued to build I was inches away from revealing the identity of this stranger in my basement, but in my heart.
