Drinking is Expensive
"Hi Everyone. Welcome to recovery happy hour where we talk about life beyond the bottle and what happens after we stopped drinking I'm your host Tricia and in almost four years of not drinking I've saved over twenty grand. That's enough money to buy either a used Honda civic or two, thousand, two, hundred and twenty four packages a frozen meatballs from Ikea. Thank you for joining me. Guys drinking is expensive and that's the topic of today's introduction. Drinking is expensive. I, have a tracker APP on my phone that tells me how much money I've saved by not spending money on alcohol and today it says twenty, thousand, three, hundred and seventy dollars. But I think that number is actually a estimate and that it could be closer to about twenty six thousand dollars, which is just nuts. So a little back story when I quit drinking also owned business that I had just put a bunch of money into to expand our kitchen space that we were in. That's actually one of the reasons why I got sober because I was about to take on this huge project and I knew that I wouldn't survive if I kept drinking the way that I was drinking. So I started getting into recovery and spent my first full year learning how to not drink. I ignored a lot of the rest of my life. You know I, let my debt continue to build without. Really thinking that much about it. I kept working on business and I learned how to be sober. That was my number one priority in after your one when not drinking was my new normal I poked my head out of the sand and I realized that even as someone who considered myself as a highly functioning alcoholic and fairly responsible I had neglected some major areas of my life, my finances being number one. This is also a reason why I think that year two of sobriety is sometimes harder than the first year because usually have to do a lot of cleanup. The new shiny feeling of early sobriety wears off and you got to learn how to just live your life now. So I continued to work my ass off on a business try to be financially responsible but by year three of sobriety I realized I was on the way to needing to close my business. There are a lot of reasons behind that. That aren't super important to get into. But what is important is that closing a business especially one that you can't sell it takes a lot of difficult decisions to do. It is responsibly as possible when it comes to finances. So in between consumer debt and business debt, I have been plugging away at this giant number for close to four years now. I've had a second job for almost two years I changed careers late twenty nineteen. I lived with my parents for a little while which had its own set of challenges. But still is an opportunity that I was incredibly grateful for. And I closed my business at the end of last year I started a new job and I continued to chip away at the debt. You know thinking back when I was drinking wasn't just about what I was spending on booze. It was also about what I was spending money on when I was drunk Nordstrom. Saw Me at my worst. Also, what I was spending my money on to help myself feel better when I was hung over again Nordstrom saw me at my worst and I have the designer shoes election approve it. It was the things purchased online in a blackout. It was all the Times I said August this round when I, was happy hour with my friends blissfully ignoring the fact that I couldn't afford that next round it was the last hours spent being hung over not being able to be a productive human being you know not working not coming up with new ideas not contributing to the world. I. Dug myself into debt financially. And emotionally and physically and spiritually I mean. Alcohol puts you into debt in more ways than you ever realize I was basically in the red in always possible. But as of this past weekend. I in finally debt free. I paid off my last payment on my credit card. My business is behind me a completely closed chapter financially, and as an unmarried woman who lives in my single income household. This feels like a really big deal that I've worked incredibly hard for. But. I wouldn't be anywhere close to where I am now how they not stopped drinking.

5 Ways to Improve Your Videoconference Presence
"Needless to say I've had some interesting online conversations over the last couple of months. I have seen parts of people's houses that I really wasn't prepared for and then there has been a mix of interesting lighting in tin can audio. Yes it has been the wild wild west. So what I've decided to do is take the microphone by the horns and do two things for my contribution to the greater video conferencing world. I I have some tips today. That are easy to enable and that with a little adjustment here or there you should be able to enable. You should be able to use these pretty quickly second later this week. I'm releasing a new online workshop. Called the essential steps to impressive video conferencing. It's a one hour movie that covers audio video and environment and I really get into some cool tips now. I'll talk more about this later in the show. But I'm GonNa tell you right now. That is free to our inner circle members who support this podcast on patron for right now. Let's get to those five tips already tip number one get the to Kia. Yes and you probably want wine. Do you want me to and I'm thinking more like Ikea. Dot Com right because shopping inside care right. A lot of places probably just isn't going to happen but I can't dot com is doing well and if you go to the search box on in enter diffused lighting. You'll get a variety of lamps and lampshades. That are exactly what you need one way or another one of. Them's going to be something that you need now. What is the deal with this Derek? Well here's the deal that the lighting on so many of these calls that I'm watching is terrible. The light tends to be too harsh the wrong color. You all sorts of things and really. What I'm seeing is that people really aren't thinking about. How do I get a flattering light on my face? Which should be really kind of at the top of the list like this. I don't WanNa look terrible. When on these webcams alrighty so how do I look better well? The rule for portrait photography applies to video conferencing as well which is the larger the light source right in the closer to your face the softer the light. And then if you position that light so this more or less you know coming straight on to your face you know. That's what we call fashion lighting and it is very flattering. There's a reason why fashion photographers use it. It makes people look pretty so going back to Ikea if you shop on Kia and you shop. Four diffused lighting. You'll see these lamps and all sorts of goodies that you can accessorize your desk with in suddenly. Look a ton better and the reason why I pick you could get these all sorts of places. But they're actually quite affordable so you get a very attractive desk accessory now and you will look much more attractive on camera if you follow this tip. Now here's the other part of that tip which is get something that's daylight balanced or s close to daylight balanced as possible and again. This is another mistake that I see so often. Which is if you have a tungsten lightbulb shining on you. You're going to be orange. And if you have fluorescent tubes eliminating your mug you're GonNa be Green and neither of those really make great colors for face right so you want a daylight balance tube or as close to daylight as you can get so two parter. One diffused lighting coming straight on and be second part of one. Get as close to daylight balance as you can already. That's tip number one. Here's tip number two. It's called Darling. You Look Marvelous now. Unfortunately those built in seven twenty p Webcams for many laptops and desktops. Just aren't very flattery. And I would go so far as to say that. They are often terrible cracks me up. I have a a state of the art macbook pro thirteen inch. This is a gorgeous machine. It does everything a beautifully except for one thing except for one thing it has that lousy seven twenty p facetime camera that when I turn it on and I look at me I do not feel good. Do not feel plus. They can't control it It has way too much depth of field. I can't control exposure. I mean just goes on and on these things are agonizing and especially for those of us who like photography their double agonizing. So we've got to get away from those now. There are a couple of things you can do. If you have a cam link already which is a digital interface that allows you to connect your digital camera to your computer. You have a lump of gold right now because they are hard to find the ones that I really like are the ones who made by El Gato however if you do a little searching online and you search for video digital interface there are some other ones and there's one right now that's fairly affordable from e can get h Made by I o gear. I think it's like ninety nine bucks That people are saying works. Pretty well and the supply of those seem to be you know pretty regular. I know that this is probably the one thing that many people don't have but is the one thing that many people should get in especially in our audience because our audience as full of people who have these beautiful Sony Olympus Panasonic Fujifilm Nikon Canon cameras right. If you have a cannon camera by the way cannon just came out with some software that you can use and you don't have to get the digital interface and just play your cannon camera in so if you're a canon shooter you may want to check that out
How build-it-yourself firearms skirt most federal gun laws
"As the corona virus pandemic sweeps through the country panic and fear have caused a run on hand sanitizer toilet paper and guns retailers tell us they have never seen such a surgeon firearm sales one kind of weapon that has been selling out is a build it yourself for her arm known as a ghost gun because it skirts most federal gun laws there's no background check and no serial number making ghost guns invisible to police and almost impossible to trace when used in a crime we were surprised that it is all perfectly legal after a year and a half of reporting we discovered that ghost guns once mainly popular with gun enthusiasts have also become a weapon of choice for criminals manufactured by gangs and used in mass shootings so this is a test firearms reference library we sought out America's top gun cops the bureau of alcohol tobacco firearms and explosives the ATF to find out exactly what a ghost gun is Thomas Chisholm ATF's assistant director of field operations gave us rare access to its West Virginia weapons repository and told us the latest additions here are ghost gardens what's the difference between these two guns well this is a firearm that was manufactured by a licensed manufacturer of the law requires them to mark them with certain markings including serial number this is not marked no background check is completed when you purchase it it's made at home by somebody using commonly available handles so they both do the same thing they both shoot and shoot him says usually if you bought a gun at a store it would have a traceable serial number and you would need to pass a background check under federal law a ghost gun can circumvent all of that because it's put together from unfinished untraceable parts it's virtually invisible to you in government and also makes it challenging to keep it out of the hands of people who are not allowed to possess firearms after that day I'd never heard the term goes can I don't know what that was Brian mule burger found out one day last November there had been a mass shooting at his daughter's high school and fifteen year old Gracie was murdered they bring in one of the doctors and just like you see on the movies he sits across from me with that real quiet Scott solemn stare right at you and I just I'm sure sand and I'm like please now don't don't tell me that please this was the aftermath at Saugus high school in Santa Clarita California a typical Thursday morning disrupted the quad littered with backpacks after students dropped everything and fled for their lives that's where Gracie was waiting for friends before class she was about as close as I am to you right now Chater right through the backpack and right through the chest and thankfully he the name of the back of her head in a place we got to see her face one more time this is a senseless act of violence Los Angeles county sheriff Alex being a waiver arrived at the scene not long after the shots were fired this kid shows up at school what happened he shows up at school he has a backpack his mom had had packed the lunch room in the backpack was also a forty five auto load carrying that loaded ghost gun was Nathaniel birdhouse a high school junior in addition to Gracie he shot and killed Dominick Blackwell and wounded three other students he save the last round for himself he's sixteen years old mmhm just turns that was his birthday how does a sixteen year old get his hands on a gun he's he's under age under age but his father was a gun enthusiasts and was in position a lot of weapons they were ultimately confiscated because he was detained for psychiatric evaluation so he the father was not supposed to have guns and all the weapons were removed legally at the time share via Nueva suspects that's when the father turned to ghost guns and his son got his hands on one six months later the Saugus investigation is still ongoing this is the actual weapon that was used in the saga shooting is a ghost gun it was assembled we don't know by who but we believe it was the father of the suspect in the came into possession then of the shooter himself ghost gun parts can be used to fabricate a hand gun or even an A.

Why savings bonds are GREAT!
"Barron's magazine is it's the investment newspaper that comes out once a week. That's four generally very very wealthy people so I was stunned to see that savings. Bonds are being recommended for small savers. I mean why why they would. Their readership doesn't care at all. I care but their readership doesn't care because this is a great value to you that you can earn right now on a savings. Bond is much better than what you can earn on a CD. In fact right now the rate that the e type bonds earning is three and a half percent approximately which is really great. It's really really good. And if you keep one for a period of time you end up being guaranteed doubling your money you want to read the briefing at Savings Bonds Dot Gov which is not the actual real address but it goes there and the I. Bonds. I remember they used to pay a a base rate of like three percent and things in that territory. Now they pay base rate of point two percent plus the rate of inflation. So nothing like the deal. They used to be but right now. That's getting you about two point. Two two percent on something you can buy for like very small amounts of money and keep them for up to thirty years. Who knows what conditions will be like in twenty fifty but right now? It's a good place to stash cash potentially and of all places. That's the kind of thing you'd expect to see and a local news source or newspaper or USA. Today not Barron's magazine.

Microsofts billion-dollar investment in carbon removal
"Microsoft Chief Environmental Officer on the COMPANY'S BILLION DOLLAR INVESTMENT IN CARBON REMOVAL TECH from American public media this is marketplace marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would in a lot of tech. Companies have pledged that their operations are or will become carbon neutral. But this this week Microsoft announced plans to become carbon negative in the next ten years that means it will invest a billion dollars in technologies to remove carbon from the atmosphere here in addition to using more renewable energy or offsetting the emissions. It creates in fact Microsoft announced that by twenty fifty it wants to remove the equivalent lint of all the carbon that the company has ever admitted in. It's forty four year existence. Ikea is the only other major company that's made a similar promise. And let's be honest. It sounds expensive. Lucas Copa is chief environmental officer at Microsoft. And I asked him if this investment could hurt the business I I don't think that this will ultimately set us back as a business. I actually think that companies that do good do well. We're making investments investments of course because we believe the best available science says that we must but also because of incredible customer demand all around the world for digital solutions to help them better understand monitor and optimize for their own carbon footprints. We're aware though that not every company has the resources that Microsoft does not every company is able to invest in the ways that we are. And that's why we're also including in our commitments Worked worked to help lower the cost curve for others who might WANNA follow down the same path. Yeah let's talk about the investment part of this. You've pledged to invest two billion dollars and also to sort of pivot efforts in the direction of removing carbon and technologies that can create resilience and sustainability but also literally early remove carbon. and I wonder what some of those technologies are. Have you identified investment opportunities already. Well I think first and foremost evolution has already provided some of the most powerful removal technologies of all through processes like photosynthesis so some of the work will be in what's called nature based solutions through forestation reforestation deforestation soil carbon sequestration. But also we'll be looking at negative emission technologies like direct air capture carbon capture and storage bioenergy. Oh Energy and what we're really motivated to do is to ensure that the capital that we put out is as additional as possible is it a venture fund. `and like are you expecting to get financial returns. In addition to technology that you can use we don't expect to that is not a requirement of the fund. We would never turn that down. I'm sure but we also don't expect to lose money. How do we know so? Many companies are announcing sustainability initiatives than carbon-neutral initiatives and it's getting hard to Parse who is doing what you know like. How do we know either in the business community or as consumers that this isn't greenwashing greenwashing? I think it requires a lot of work on the side of corporations to be as transparent and as literal as possible. So there's a reason season that we're using the term carbon negative because what we are saying is we are going to go below net zero. I think the best we can do. It was just to be clear eyed and cold hearted accountants and that we shouldn't avoid the fact that carbon math requires some math. And we're are all going to have to start to better understand it if we're going to be able to understand in parse through different corporate commitments. Let's also talk about. Incentives is this is becoming
Seeking Climate Positivity by 2030, Ikea to Overhaul Entire Business
"I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily happy Friday friends. Twenty twenty could be the year when a new kind of rivalry moves front and center sustainability. We've seen it before as younger consumers increasingly demand environmental and social responsibility more and more companies are pledging to clean up their supply. Chains use recycled plastic shrink water. Use in fact we reported on such business where late last year when we talked about target and Walmart racing to outshine in each other's use of solar power this year expect this race to eco-friendliness to start becoming his. Commoner rivalries more traditional measures of success like sales in profits giant furniture retailer. Ikea kicked it off in December by pledging to invest two hundred million dollars to become climate positive by twenty thirty. What haven't heard the term climate positive. Well it means reducing more emissions than an organization emits. That's a big deal for global companies like Ikea which has more more than four hundred twenty stores worldwide in order to achieve climate positively. Kia can't just cut down on travel. Use more renewable energy it has to rethink how how it designs all of its inexpensive furniture in the first place along with how consumers shop for it and how they eventually get rid of it. According to Fast Company in Short Short Ikea's commitment demands an entire overhaul of its forty six billion dollar business battle include choosing new building materials committing to responsible forestry Korean reforestation and helping transform the operations of suppliers and behavior of customers. I keep promising to step up. Its push for circular economy KONAMI. meaning that everything gets reused rather than winding up in a landfill. I is not the only large company to pledge. Climate positively other major announcements have come from Businesses like fast fashion retailer H. M. which has pledged to achieve it by twenty forty but as the Wall Street Journal noted industry has yet to agree on what the term climate aamot. Positively actually means for instance. I Ki- wants to do it. Literally without using carbon offsets like planting trees to make up for plane travel for instance but other firms embrace carbon offsets actions available to them right now even if they may not be perfect choices. Well it may be obvious but success S. is far from guaranteed here as CNBC noted I- Kia recently win in the wrong direction. In two thousand eighteen. The company reported emissions of almost twenty seven in million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent or jump of three percent over twenty sixteen. Akia chalked that went up to company growth. The business has aggressive aggressive expansion plans including building new stores in India. One question facing any large companies how to reduce emissions while continuing to grow. That's something I ki- appears appears to be studying

"ikea" Discussed on The Box Of Oddities
"Yuri worked in a morgue for about thirty five years and so he saw the effects of certain behaviors on body smoking like smoking exactly so these are legitimate scientifically based warnings. We'll because you know the Museum of Sin Leads one to believe that the overall meaning for this is that. If you're bad you're GONNA be deformed some way yeah so yeah. That's yeah his. He has a very opinionated view. Of how one should live their life and he said that he doesn't feel bad about being opinionated because he's seen for thirty five years the effects of certain behaviors ears on people's bodies. Give me some example. So when you go to the exhibit on the entrance is a plaque and it said this is a place where the dead teach the living and the idea is to present the consequences of the you know the cigarettes or the indulging in an alcohol visually so it is meant for learning of but also for the general population. And it's a little bit of finger wagging I wanted to see body. Eddie works in Boston and they had healthy lungs next to somebody who had smoked for forty years shocking shocking yakking. Yeah and I think it's really interesting to learn like the effects of quitting smoking and how quickly those affects starts take place. There's some things that Start to affect your body almost immediately and then some things that will take years and years and years to recover based on you know how long long you smoked for and Etcetera Etcetera Anyway. That's not the point. Okay here we go okay. So they're There are three sections in this museum of the main section with various the preparations. The the things to show you others also an extensive library on medicine including rare and old additions and then there's a memorial exhibition Devoted to a medical specialist whose name was Luke and So there's a part of the the museum dedicated to that that surgeon so the Museum of sin contains containers with limbs and organs and human embryos and various bits. Camila strating the consequence of behaviors as we've said according to the website they have approximately eight hundred thirty five items and the number of rare slash collector items uh-huh which seems like a weird thing to call them About six hundred seventy five so yes you will see the effects of smoking on lungs you will see. Examples of kidney disease allegedly the result of abusing alcohol. You will also see the amputated hip of a young man who gave himself a tattoo in an effort to lure a woman so his his lust led him to losing his his leg. One of the seven deadly 's there's also the severed finger of a man who allegedly was a philanderer over and while leaving the home of his Lava Got His ring caught on a fence post and Ripped does finger on so there you go. That's what happens when you cheat you lose your fingers so some of these as you can tell maybe a little more of a stretch. There's also a skull on which a quote Unquote Horn grew through on the head of a burglar after he was hitting the head with a hammer while breaking into someone's house so it probably that's not what happened at at all but Yuri saw that as an opportunity to teach people that you shouldn't do bad things because then you'll end up in the Museum of San. I wonder I'm sure that you know there are many displays there that are legitimate but I wonder how many yeah he he kind of fudged the story I mean. Can you prove to us that. The burglar was hitting the head with a hammer. And if he was who's to say he didn't have that that Little Horn prior to his head injury. We don't know also. Where does he get all this stuff did he just collected over the years? Working in our funeral enroll home and wouldn't that be illegal. What he's going to end up as one of his own display? I was just thinking of like the most elaborate stories stories that would have led to a display. Like maybe he comes across some sort of broken leg bone and he's like a broken leg bone and see that's what happened When a man who spent his whole life just eating and being lazy decided sided that he needed to run after the ice cream truck and then broke his leg leg broken sloth smutny leg broken and maybe he has somebody that worked at his museum that writes up these histories like the guy who writes the fortunes in the fortune cookies? That's his job. He just sits in the back. macroom says okay. Now I've got a busted femur okay fat guy in an ice cream truck okay good. I'll do that one. I think that could be kind of fun. Exercise size actually is coming up with the most story that led to a various simple injury. My nose bleed Well see what had happened. was US bill. Bill was very greedy man and so he spent many late nights at the office than the office was next door to a business that sold dehumidifiers the fires and so the dehumidifier The dehumidify air made its way into the office building where bill worked and year after year are bill at leaded. Nose bleeds greedy greedy and he and now he has nosebleeds the end that would be a really long plaque at the museum. Anyway that's the Museum of Sin. It reminds me a little bit of that Park that we talked about a while ago where it teaches those those. There's lessons through the art in the park. Yeah where was that Taiwan. I don't remember you know that he has got a display with Somebody that died of syphilis you gotta be one of his. His displays teaches you about pride. Sure Okay because because you said pride because that is one of the seven deadly sins that we haven't mentioned yet right okay and also deem dehumidifier it sure bill in his nose bleed and he hustle. Yeah we definitely have to go there. Oh Oh yeah. Amsterdam is on our list of places. That's the other one though. Oh where was that one. The Museum of San in Russia in Russia.

The museum is located at the Domino's pizza corporate headquarters because he also owned Domino's pizza sure a combination of interests baseball pizza and frank. Lloyd Wright I like all those things in twenty eleven a woman in Poland a fifty six year old woman in Poland notified. Police that She was afraid somebody was trying to steal her husband's property and she handed them a a CD with a lot of images on it pictures photos of what the property was. They looked at it. They realized that they weren't looking at just a bunch of like junk in a in a in a shed but hundreds of renaissance and Baroque paintings which they thought was a little peculiar because the husband was a ninety ninety two year old former bricklayer. Not exactly the kind of guy who would have a priceless collection of rare art. Sure so the police arrived at the home and they found that the quote shed that his staff were stored in was not really a shed. It was a two story building with twenty inch thick doors and it was full of valuable paintings. The oldest one came from fifteen thirty two. Now you you would think that these priceless works of art. Many of which have been lost for centuries people didn't know where they were would be stored in a climate controlled safe area when in reality they were just kind of piled up on the floor with garbage on top of them now. Laugh just strewn about many of the paintings. Unfortunately we're in pretty poor condition. Almost three hundred works of art and they try to to price the collection but they couldn't do it immediately all they could say for sure it was that it was worth millions and millions of euros now the guy who owned him they only identify him as Antoni. 'EM was charged with handling stolen art. Because obviously he couldn't afford to buy all this stuff. What was going on a lot of the paintings bore marks for museums art? That had been stolen from museums. Interesting One lithograph was recognized as lost during the Nazi reign. I knew it I knew there was a Nazi connections Nazi connection. Nobody knows for sure how this happened. Maybe got his hands on a bunch of looted art that the Nazis left behind as they retreated from Soviet forces in Poland. which seems is like a pretty likely possibility? Another theory is that he somehow dug up collection in the nineteen sixties during building project. But he's not giving up the the secret son how he acquired all this art he is not talking and the reason is shortly after the collection was discovered did he suffered two strokes which left him unable to communicate so nobody knows I have another question. Why did his wife think that someone was trying to steal the art? Like why did she go to the police in the first place. Yes she had just seen people kind of a skulking around this building it was relatively close to their home and suspicious suspicious activity and so she reported that and that is what led to this discovery. Now do we think that she did not discuss reporting writing that with her husband. I because it seems like if he had been keeping quiet all this time probably they didn't want it reported to the police and I can't can't imagine like dinner that night like you did what there is another possibility. They say that possibly art dealer used to own the house and he merely left a whole bunch of paintings there when he moved away. But if that's the case it would seem unlikely that they had catalogued everything on a CD ROM with with all the photos of the of the merchandise in there. It just seems like In my opinion I'm I'm thinking it's it's stuff left over from the Nazi retreat. Um It makes less sense because there was a lot of Nazi treasure in Poland at the time so it makes sense to me. It's really interesting Q.. Imagine what the American pickers acres would have done. If they'd if they'd wandered into that building I I was really looking for an antique motorcycle today. So I'm going to have to pass on this rembrandt. If we could take five bucks are we doing it.

When he grew up in the forties they they lived on a farm that did not have electricity or plumbing when he was really young and he had to go out to the outhouse in the middle of the night which was a pain in the ass to do when it was the dead of winter in northern Maine? But he said even worse than that was having to wipe with a sears. Catalog I imagine those glossy pages. These are not very absorbent. I don't think didn't think so. Did they really is a sears catalog. In the phone book when I was a young person we had a camp in northern Maine. Gene where we had an outhouse and That was my only experience with an outhouse.

"Box oddities. Welling hope you had a glorious holiday week. I know we did. Yeah our our weekend or a week was glorious because we did absolutely nothing right we got all of the Mandatory holiday things things done in advance so that Christmas Eve into Christmas was just staying at the house in Pajamas with the dogs. In fact you may have seen the photo that we posted Christmas morning of us in our pajamas. We're still wearing those same pajamas right now. CBS but here. We are at the beginning of a New Year. Twenty twenty happy New Year. Everybody D- Are you doing a New Year resolution. Yes Yeah Yeah Yeah. Last year I resolved to go to the gym more often and so I went and got a gym membership this this year resolve to either. USE IT or cancel it sure one or the other. Yeah that's A. That's a good plan baby steps. I think that's important. I got a treadmill this year. which actually makes things a lot easier for me? Because I don't have to go somewhere do something which is nice. I don't tend to make resolutions because I feel like if I want to be better than I should be willing to be better at any point during the year But I do like the idea of resolutions. I've just never been very good at making Ma'am I guess. One great thing one great way to start the New Year is is by letting you know that quite a bit of money was raised for a very important. 'cause we were talking about this During the holy holidays are coming up to the holidays. We had a fundraiser. That we're teaming up with Himalayas for and You know I don't want to get all into it. But but it had to do with our premiums channel and subscribers and so on and so forth anyway Himalayas and with us and and are participating. His painting shows were able to donate Almost six hundred dollars to end the backlog. So that's pretty awesome. Thanks to those of you who participated in. That means means a lot to us. Do you go I do I go I got I know it's been a while I'm going I am here we go we all have this I I think hidden desire to find lost treasure or a valuable object at a yard sale or maybe on E. Bay or at goodwill of course that's why I love antiques roadshow so much love it well here are a couple of stories about people at found treasures or valuable objects and unexpected places back in October of twenty twelve in Rome a couple of guys Mirko Kurti and a friend lost their cats. They're cat got out of their apartment in took off. It was like ten o'clock at night on a Tuesday and the cat headed toward a low rock cliff off which was close to his home in a residential area of the city so they followed this cat and the cat somehow managed to get into a grotto and they followed followed. The sound of its meowing inside the small opening in the cliff. According to the Guardian the two guys found themselves surrounded by niches. That had been chiseled into the rock similar to those that were used by the Romans for the burial or actually the the The placement of funeral urns okay. And they're also appeared to be tons of human bones scattered about on the floor of this grotto. The so they called archaeologists to the scene and they said the two it was a tomb and it would probably dated from somewhere in the first century. B We see maybe between that in the second century AD and because the niches were used to store ashes in earns the bones had probably ably tumbled into the tomb from a separate burial space which was higher up inside the cliff. No they had not noticed this opening in the cliff before it was pretty obvious. They speculated that there had been some heavy rains in the weeks prior and that the rain had probably caused the rocks that were concealing the the entrance to the tomb to to crumble is very soft kind of rock and it was often used in that area throughout the centuries because it was easy to Chisel into they used used it for burial purposes You know tombs in that sort of thing. But but because of it being so soft and because of the elements most of them are a good portion of they are estimating have never been found because they you know they just get buried island imagine and also with that kind of soft rock. I bet there's a a lot of collapsing. Yes for some reason the word grotto like I get what it means but when I hear it I immediately think of some sort sort of like late day cafe. I'M GONNA head down to the grotto and get a cafe. You know coffee. I don't know why but that's what it makes me think now you would think that a discovery like this would be received by the locals with much excitement. Not so much. The case irritated now because it was the discovery it was pretty close to not Kia store and all the cars had to park further away from the store as to not contaminate the area while they while the archaeologists just dug it up. You had to walk a little extra distance to get to the Ikea wait. Was this an America. No it's enrolling okay. It just seems seems like a very American reaction you will to historical find people are people said. It was amazing though to wander into a tomb so close to his house and he'd been living there for years and had no idea was there he said it was the most incredible experience of his life. And you'll be glad to. I know they found the Kitty. Good okay I found this article article in the New York Times in one thousand nine hundred eighty three Frank Lloyd. Wright introduce the demonstration ministration house at an exhibition of his work in New York and was put on display ultimately at the Guggenheim Museum. The final word Guggenheim mm-hmm. I loved him in police academy the House was torn down in nineteen fifty four after the exhibition was over and it pretty much join. Join the ranks of many other Wright buildings that have been lost over the years after the house was taken apart right. Sold it to a real estate dude. Whose name was Hayward Herald Hayward Hayward became ill and he sold the house to a guy named David Hengqin now he was the contractor that actually put put the building up in the first place Hakin tried to sell it but he had no luck one buyer declined because the house didn't satisfy legal minimum cubic cubic foot requirements in his town and other said no because the local building inspectors didn't approve of a flat roof because you know Shares was was very boxy. Yeah it's not real smart to have any of those in the northeast where you see a lot of snow etc right. So he gave up trying to sell it in the fifties and and just moved onto other other projects but he stored it in the basement of a building that he owned all the pieces he stored award in a basement of in this building. That's not any forgot about it. What well he'd just didn't forget about it but he just he didn't do anything with it in one thousand nine hundred eighty four four? He remembered the house and he didn't want to have to deal with trying to sell it so he gave it to the television station W. N. E. T. in New York as part of their annual fundraiser. PBS fundraiser okay. So the news of this got out especially in the architecture world and people started just losing their freaking minds. The head of the Archives of Rights Old Estate said we were completely unaware that this house now still existed a former resident of the society of architectural historians. Called it quite a fine really quite exciting. And one of Wright's biographers biographers commented something somebody will be able to make a lot out of. There will have to be takers for this. The House has a complicated history. It was originally created as a means of focusing public attention on rights long career. He was eighty six years old by the time. The house was erected interest in producing serious architecture that it could be affordable to the average family was what rights goal was. The house was a special edition to a large exhibition of photographs and models of rights. Rights work called sixty years of living architecture. The house cost initially fifteen thousand dollars to erect. At least that was the original plan and this was in fifty three fifty three fifty four. That's what they projected the cost to be but it actually turned out to be closer to forty six thousand.

That's profitable but like not that profit. You're not you'll do the business. But you're not thrilled about it. And the prophet pig for Fedex. Fedex is e Commerce e commerce is something that Fedex historically. Wasn't that interested in fact when it officially broke up with Amazon last year Fedex. I was only delivering one. Point three percent of Amazon's packages to effectively deliver for like Walmart or target or like a Non Amazon E. Commerce. They need a better the ground game over at Fedex. Fedex is reluctantly GONNA keep doing e commerce and it's GonNa work with Walmart and target but it needs more trucks more facilities more than more more weekend shifts. It's even delivering on Sunday year round. All that is costly and that's why this is their prophet pig. They're not week as much profit at it. So Jack what's the takeaway for our buddies over. Fedex is shipping industry is growing but shipping is getting commodity online. Shoppers are spoiled. We expect packages to be livered overnight. Hip for free with no extra shipping and handling.

Boura little bit I just remember what I thought was extremely off so I use myself as an example all the time this is a thirty two double D look if I was a betting woman I don't really but if I was a betting woman every in the thousands of people that I fit for bras when they come in there wearing a cup size too small in a band is too big almost every time and believe it or not because of how sister sizing works a thirty four sees the same cup size volume which was your guest as a thirty two D. and so if we I was off I have I have a very sneaking suspicion that mine is Brown okay so the

"Today we're off to explore the neighborhood of Tin Hau in in Hong Kong which is pronounced tin like the mental and how like the question so how do I get that. The answer is pretty simple. Go to the nearest. MTO Station Asian gets on the Blue Island line and get off at either Tin Hau or Fortress Hill alternatively. If you decide to take a taxi it's a good idea to use either of those. MTO Stations Sion's as your point. That's because strictly speaking there is no such places in the area that lies between these two stations and is bordered by Victoria Park Victoria Harbor and Braemar. Hill should technically be called either Causeway Bay or North Point. The Phantom district of Tin. Hau actually gets its name from the nearby Tin Hau Temple Tin. Hau is the goddess of the scene Cantonese so these temples erected in her honour have traditionally attracted fishermen Chaman families who come to pay their respects and Ostra protection from the ocean necessarily expect Tin Hau temples usually found dumped along the coast of Hong Kong. However in this particular neck of the woods extensive land reclamation work in the early twentieth century has pushed the temple further and further away from the sea as a result? If you walk into Tin Hau Temple today the closest you find to get your feet. Wet is the Water Fountain in the courtyard. I generally quite pleasant spot with covered seating being a chance for some spiritual contemplation the puck that thought for now luke plenty of time for rest and reflection of the end of Ottawa right now. We're we're off to explore some of Tin House. Earthly Delights and we are beginning to in Fortress Hill at the station gets out exit a and crossed the busy kings road onto oil street being shooter look out for the double decker trams as they trundled past find your bearings little snippet of local history by first nipping into oil street art space. This two story great listed red brick building dating back to one thousand nine hundred eight used to be the homicide home of the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club but after the coastline moved the club set sail to new premises in the nineteen thirties and today the converted art space ace is the only surviving waterfront building from that time standing on the corner of oil streets and Wang on road spend a moment to take in the old tenement buildings well I erected on this reclaimed land now have to shed his space with several much newel unfought Shinier office towers while you were there order a coffee Alfie to go through the window at Smoko an owner operated hole in the wall cafe occupied this same pavement spot for the last four years for an extra jolt of Benji.

Yom Road and then take a right onto electric road which is one of ten house major thoroughfares runs parallel to the hopper electric road road gets his name from Old Power Station that was decommissioned in the nineteen seventies demolished and then turned into housing for the road around as it bends left an enter enter Causeway Bay market. This is a typical example of Hong Kong so-called wet markets that can be found almost every neighborhood in the city stole operators tend to wear release on feet for good reason the floors at these wet markets are usually soaking wes on account of the live fish and other seafood that are sold out two polystyrene boxes filled up with water and melting ice fresh meat is also sold alongside the seafood but in the city it comes with a word of caution in Hong Kong fresh meat means live meat not that fluffy farm-to-table marketing speak pig's trotters watches and snouts hang on hooks on one side of Causeway Bay markets while live chickens squeezed into tiny cages clock and school on the other side. Animal lovers be warned in fact the same goes for anyone with a sensitive stomach skip this part of the tour. I'm probably shut your ears for the next ten or twenty seconds at Causeway Bay market. Live poultry plucked from their cages by multitasking butcher who then ways them tags them and kills them right in front of paying in customers the chickens then handed to the chaps at the back of the store to be defended in cleaned and win the caucuses returned to the front counter the butcher slices of the feet it cuts the body into chunks and Hanover in a plastic bag for those you still listening at this point. Don't be surprised to see black skin chickens on the butcher's board causeway Tapei market. It's local delicacy and a curious sight to behold when I encountered at the bottom of a clear Chinese soup on that note it. It must be time for spot of lunch tin. Hau is home to plenty of roasted goose restaurants however something tells me that right now you a feeling like like something a little bit more healthy and wholesome so let's leave the market behind and head over to campus a Japanese Carey House on the other side of electric road campuses led by Chef Fujita Kanter and his restaurants simple approach to food can be summed up as minimal fuss minimal fat.

"This hidden brain. I'm Sean curvy Donham, the actress, Amy Poehler once said, I is Swedish for argument research, Daniel Chon has one explanation for why Bill that your cell phone chatter can cause so much friction between partners. Imagine that you built a table. Maybe a little bit crooked, probably your wife or your neighbor would see it for what it is. You know, probably shoddy piece of workmanship, but to you, the table might seem really great because you're the one who created it is the fruit of your labor, and that is really the idea behind the key effect. It is that we come to over value, the things that we have created ourselves breath, Pelham's research about a preference for people and places that are associated with us made me think about a related idea. The narcissus effect also shows up in our preference for things that we make ourselves the way we think about KEA is that I can't give you good furniture for low cost because they afloat. Lots of the cost onto the consumer assembly costs. But in fact, we innocence challenging that idea and is actually psychological benefit behind this, that actually people might end up liking furniture more, because they built it and says, not so much cost, but of benefit that they get to build your own furniture. Daniela's co-authors did a series of experiments to test this hype asus. They brought volunteers into the lab and gave them either a LEGO car pre assembled or give them Legos and instructions and told the participants to build car themselves, then the volunteers, how much would you pay to keep your LEGO car, and what we find is that the people who build their own Legos, not only are willing to pay more to keep their assembled Legos. But also when we asked him, how proud they are their own creations. They tend to be prouder of their legs and mind, you these are labels that are designed to five to seven year olds, but nonetheless seems to be some competent some pride associated with wants creation, even for basic things building Legos, the researchers replicated the study using other products. Like I key on a chair and the effect was the same people who spent time and effort, building something felt proud of what they'd built fell in love with it, and winning to pay lots of money to keep the things they'd built from the perspective of rationally communist, this doesn't make much sense. The students might be willing to pay twice as much money to buy exact same, LEGO car if they just finished building.

"Microsoft dot com slash AI. Researchers have long observed a tendency for people to be drawn to others who are like them in some way, when we hear someone else has the same birthday or the same name. We feel a little tug of kinship, some of us might even be drawn to move to states that sound familiar. There's at least a modest tendency for women named Georgia to gravitate toward Georgia women named Virginia to gravitate toward Virginia, and the more closely, the name resembles estate, the bigger the effect appears to be this is Brett Pelham. He's a professor of psychology at Montgomery college in Maryland. He studied something called implicit egotism, which is the idea that many biases are unconscious and one very well, studied bias was egotism value in the self favorably, protecting the self and so forth. And so we simply got the idea that there several different things that at least to some degree reflect that preference for the self an attraction to things that resemble the self like having an affinity for some. With the same birthday or someone with the same name or even going into a profession. That sounds like an echo of your name. So we originally looked at whether people named Dennis or Denise gravitate toward dentistry, but we learned quickly that it's really hard to get data on those things. So you there aren't great directories of medical professionals. There is a guy named Abel who was able to document review on his paper. And every time you say this, I'm going to jump in and say, a guy named Abel, who was able to do something he was able to do a lot of things he showed that people whose last name is Dr or whose last name is the word lawyer. The name lawyer gravitated toward those two professions. There are lots of other examples. Brett looked at a massive database of millions of Americans names from the recently released one thousand nine hundred forty senses to examine, if they will brought patterns, like carpenters working in carpentry bakers. Working as bakers butchers working as butchers minors workings Meyer, Mason's workings Mason. So we. At every surname, there is currently the top two thousand surnames that happens to be a career name. And we looked at all of them. They're Levin of them that are pretty common. I just listed a few and for every single surname in the nineteen forty cents is with something like a I think it one hundred and thirty million people. We were able to show that for every single surname, there was at least a week tendency for people to gravitate toward careers that perfectly match their last names. So the obvious thing to say, of course, is that the reason you have a slightly larger number of carpenters be carpenters is that the name carpenter probably originated from families who were in carpentry. And so there is some kind of ancestral connection to the profession. That is driving both the names and the choices quite possibly. But if you do the math, you pretty quickly say it gets to be a pretty tiny percentage of people. So if you assume that even over ten generations, there's a fifty percent chance that you did what your dad did and a fifty percent chance that he did what his grandfather did? Which is probably higher than reality. You're talking about a probability of less than one thousand already over ten generations. In other words, surnames are so old and they change hands. You know, when a woman named carpenter Mary's accounting farmer, for example, that, that's really it really just can't account for an effect anywhere near this magnitude..
