The Last US Civil War Pension
"Triplet was born in Nineteen thirty in Wilkes County North Carolina Sixty five years after the end of the civil war. How she ended up receiving civil war pension is one of those stories that you wouldn't believe if it wasn't true. But when you do the math, it actually does workout. Her father was most triplet was a veteran of the civil war. He had the distinction of having fought for both the confederacy and the Union. He was a member of the fifty third North Carolina infantry who fought in the battle of Gettysburg. On the way to Gettysburg most fell ill and was hospitalized the illness probably saved his life because most of his unit was either killed or wounded during the battle. After he recovered, he deserted the confederates and joined up with the third north, Carolina mounted infantry which fought for the union. The unit was known as Kirks raiders after commander Colonel, George Washington. Kirk. After the war Mos- returned to North Carolina got married and started a family his wife Mary passed away in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety. As with many older civil war veterans, they would often take younger second wives especially during the Great Depression as their pension was considered a source of stable income. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four at the age of seventy eight MOS married his second wife Alita who was twenty nine years old Mohsen Alita had five children. One of them Irene was born in one, thousand, nine, thirty when Mos- was eighty-three. Irene was just eight years old when her father died at the age of ninety two after returning home from a civil war veterans reunion. Irene had a cognitive disability which made her eligible to continue to receive her father civil war pension after his death as a quote, helpless child of a veteran. She received her father's pension of seventy three dollars and thirteen cents every month from her father's death in one thousand, nine, thirty, eight to her death in. Twenty twenty. The amount was never for inflation. The entire time it's estimated she received approximately seventeen thousand dollars over the course of her life. In addition to having received the last civil war pension, she was also the last child of a civil war veteran. The second to last child of a civil war veteran also had an interesting story in two thousand. Eighteen Fred Upton passed away at the age of ninety seven. His father was William H Upton. Who is a civil war veteran and the former governor of the state of Wisconsin who was elected in eighteen ninety four. Because of the occurrence of young women marrying much older men with pensions, the passing of the last civil war widow wasn't that long ago either in two thousand and eight motty Hopkins died at the age of ninety three in thousand, nineteen, thirty, four at the age of nineteen she married eighty six year old William Cantrell who served as a sixteen year old soldier in the confederate army. Blast Union widow was Gertrude Janeway who passed away in two thousand three. The last surviving documented veteran of the civil war was Albert Wilson who died at the age of one, hundred, six in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six he was a fourteen year old drummer boy in the first Minnesota. Heavy. Artillery Regiment. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six there was an episode of the TV Game Show I've got a secret with a ninety five year old man named Samuel Seymour. The panelists had to guess what the guest secret was. Samuel Seymour. Was the last surviving witness to Abraham Lincoln's assassination. He was a five year old boy was taken affords theater and said in the balcony across the theater from the present it. there. Is a clip of the appearance on Youtube and I highly recommend viewing it if you're interested in such things. The. Last surviving person who was born as a slave in the United States was Peter Mills who died in Nineteen seventy-two he was born into slavery in eighteen sixty one and live to be one hundred, ten, one person was both born into bondage and live to see the moon landing. The last surviving veteran of the Revolutionary War was John Gray who died in eighteen sixty, eight at the age of one, hundred four he's one of the only people who live to see both the revolution and the civil war oddly enough he was born on George Washington's estate Mount Vernon and his father died in the revolutionary. War. The, last surviving veteran of Napoleon's army was a Polish man Vincent Markowitz who died at one hundred and eight in nineteen three and the last veteran of the war of eighteen twelve was Hiram Cronk who passed away in one thousand, nine, five at the age of one, hundred and five. In Two thousand eleven at the age of one hundred and ten American Frank. Buck was the last surviving veteran of World War One in the world to pass away. Demographers estimate that the last veteran of World War Two will pass away sometime around the year twenty, forty four. It will probably be someone who fought at a very young age and lives to be at least one, hundred and ten. It's amazing how the lives of some people can span such incredible lengths of time and how we can have lives that overlap them. We think of the civil war is being a long time ago. Yet we're only two or three generations removed from people who lived through all of these events.

Twitter Will Be Fun Today - The College Kids Who Hacked Into Twitter
"Today's guests. His Hip Awan CEO of Afani. Secure and private cell phone service locum his Heeb. Thank you Laura for home. You'll show. You were one of the investigators in touch with the young people who hacked twitter last week and gain control of prominent accounts, including those of Joe. Biden Obama Elon Musk and others as well as those of crypt companies like coin, base and finance, and when they had control those accounts, they were soliciting bitcoin from twitter users. How did you get in touch with the hackers? So Laura be in like. four-time itself, so then after I was so pissed off that angry that I said I need to solve this problem, and so I've entered into a form that relates how they have those accounts holiday getting pretty much all the ring of how they operate so. When you say that they had had your twitter account, nor they have my Sim Sark four times. Okay, and when you say Sim, swaps just described that in case, listeners does up. Does improper pretty much. What happened is like someone will take the form so the underground market like think about Ebay, but like I knew democracy with information. So you said your name, your information social security number your call logs your life, your life, location or anything on you. If I say hey, I need to find out for Laura Shane telephone number, and they'll give me telephone number will give me a call loss to give you. An everything comes through telephone numbers of numbers unique, and then if I say. Say Hey. I need to take the phone number 'cause I need so they will just prophet abuse him that I control, and I need to pay them few hundred dollars now. Your formula not work anymore because I had control of Sim card, so then I use that telephone number to get into a g mail, facebook and twitter, so if you go on twitter, new likely rescinded to email our number. If it's telephone number you've got. Someone's adopted very common technique deployed across US for a long time. So. The twitter hack twitter said that their employees had been socially engineered, and that's how these hackers gained control the systems. Are you saying that? Some twitter employees have their account. Sim swapped like how how does that you or Simspon tried? These people relate to the twitter Hack Greg? You wanted to ask me like how to get in touch with them so I'm trying to understand. You, that of analysis himself, so started going into the industry into this form than trying to see how they operate and to Dodd funny, so which will provide the made acadia that probably that cannot be Simpson's. That's what we did an offer that. VINCI START GETTING customers. Have you would actually getting a lot of attempts to do so? You would getting Dempsey pretty much every week that someone prior to himself or customer, trying to like hack into our system and mend the failed. I got in contact David Mayhew call, they would email method you and they will do all kinds of attacks. You know they'll try to let pen to pen tests. The everything did and obviously in one of the cases restocked immunity stopping messing around it right I know what you're up to. And after I got in touch with him to signal and author that the lake. Not I won't say that become a friend, but I told them why you're doing this. Thank you know you should not do this multiple hackers and they said okay. If you don't have anything to do pretty much, does it okay? Why don't you get a job? He said job, and then they start feeding the all information to proved at. Legit than a lot of information and how I was getting information from a lot of talk of the vote. And when it all this happened that you got in touch with him and had it happened late four five months ago. Okay They were diverging to me not just for this hot, but for other purposes to ride like a kid discount. Lot of databases beach everyday, so they wanted to see that a hey. If I'm interesting in the database, just wanted to work pretty much. is not money. It's also about ego that they wanNA prove something that they would do something so. So Mike Context for not hacking, but they'll be into the songs that they had access to. That follows A. Up I didn't want to. Excessive today were passing me. Hey, today. This is for sale to do sports on tomorrow. This person's so on the deal stood attack. I got a message that will be fun today, and when this message I thought he'd be like a distributor barks. Like scam scams, and but after why? That's all the kind. We got attacked ten. Finance Accounting Noble at depth one time. I taught that it's just a third party API like you know you have like you know where your schedule. The in everything I thought that may be compromised, and that's how they got author. Riley said No. We have everything. A screen chart I tweeted screen shot, and after that is blue. Well and so, who are these people? who were the people involved in the actual twitter hack? The difficult to identity like frankly I don't know I can speculate, but obviously because someone security and privacy I don't want to speculate but I can tell you wanting like college. Kids are maybe like someone between eight, eighty, twenty, one, twenty, two, and they are video gamers. They'd metaphor armed, and they found fascinating for them. Dislike a game like you go into video game on you killing you do stuff for them. It's like that. They, probably living in some way or radio patterns right now in basement. Who does not even know anything? and. They just do it for fun. Obviously, money's there, too, but most of fun for them is just a today. And so originally. The way you got in touch with them was they were targeting these different cell phone accounts, and what does motivation and taking over the different cell phone accounts so for account you can actually to when people take account, they can actually destroy you financially emotionally ended up recently, though by financial I can say they can get into your county bank accounts ticket by Tiptoe through that they can buy a lot of levels of securities financially they can do. obviously going to facebook in an email to, and then they donor all information from your facebook, and then they start blackmailing you that. Hey, likely when a lot you have done this like you know you have this. And you have to pay me this information out there and a lot of people would have to pay them the money because they don't pay the money. They looted operation right so and then third party. They just become Parson Mike is the word processing me. blender used to take my county new. They cannot get anything, but they wanted to talk to me. Just fun for them like people. Some people are sick. Like how did they pick you out of all the different people that they could torture also the league, if not just me like everyday hundreds of people to get them soft, though I'm just one of them on average, every second medical become victim of since up, not himself but cybercrimes so. But I had the impression that this was primarily targeting crypto currency people, but you're saying it's any bundled nor I think eighty percent of people who was himself to an entrepreneur L.! And the new in the cases of those people is it like personal vendettas that they're trying to? You can make more money by a hacking Lord cell than anything else you know. is one thing but Lloyd is like one number one target Loyd and has professionals league doctor medical doctor then. In Lord other number one targets in suffers, and what is the motivation for targeting lawyers Don. Money don't happen. How do they monetize that Yeah, so I tell you doctors, basically busy less tech, savvy and rich. It's that easy to find out any doctor information. You can find out who the best doctor in the city and you consume. Stop Him. And once you get into that account, you can transfer money between accounts who can be that people have been? Going into the count, Simpson calling the bank making via transfer, and then just checking accounts. That's pretty common. For for doctors to clinics have a lot of money. If you'RE GONNA clinic, instead he did even like five hundred hundred million dollar distorted the front because Alaska. Election for them. Okay, so let's go back to the twitter hack. They were some names that were identified of people who are involved these names. In The New York Times article that quoted you as a source one was kirk. There were some other people ll and ever so anxious. Who were these people? And how did they know each other? So they don't. Know the Best Birdie. They just hang out on rooms like chatting channels lake similar people on developed talked with you. The pirates channels. We had people a go if they WANNA have information to the document industry for finding information. If I want someone associated Gordon dissipates on one. Don't get call for these people trade information. And you asked about like a leg. Imagine your lawyer and you are fighting for my open kiss. We begin go to the website by that long since he will. They are who they're talking to the day can. Make some delays on them. That's one thing but other than that. These people are just a game as they would play like you know different video games and kick the die, who was basically a source of the rate industry rock says they'll be extra agents, and they are in room for longtime and David. Obviously you want you want something you don't trust the new guy. The new guy who is basically the main culprit punching the entity because multiple reasons, but the main guidance, the just which had A. Reputation. If you say you want a username of Laura at Laura, Shannon inactive. You may not trust kick, so you can do this. Middle Diane Tell Them Hey, can you hold the money for because you have a good relation? Because like Ebid forums generally have a petition systems. You know so then you ve into this guy like you know every inch it He went to care. Concur depended he the credit employees but I. Don't think he was employees. And, then he gave him the concert start building. So this is just a middleman. He was just broken deals. You tell them what you want. He was just keep his car and transfer the money. The is completed that fall. And so so kirk was was saying that he was a twitter employees, but as you said, you don't think that he was, and he was essentially selling valuable twitter accounts, and if people didn't trust, Kirk, they would use ever so anxious as their middleman to get the different twitter handles that they wanted. Is that what happened? That's correct. Good Gig, only unharmed on in July of. July it was very recently. that. He actually came so obviously not trust someone admit. That soon. July seventh in the New York Times article are. Limited okay, but all right so but ever so anxious. How to longer reputation and. And that was who people are transacting with. And so then. How did BITCOIN come into this? All. On these things happen through Bitcoins, so the way it started was they were selling. This twitter handles four bitcoin and then later. How did the scam change? So I. Personally is what I personally think. That kid was in touch with the employees who was giving these accounts. For a few thousand dollars. And then. Either bribed him. Architects. Social Engineering Him. Legs because like hey can do. This is my. This is purely my speculation that you're working for so long. He warned the trust. Any may have said Hey, can you log in forbid I wanNA see how it looks like something that he made it something so the guy is pasta on. Hey, just do it, but don't do anything crazy. You Know Butt kicked. Decide Okay, man I can just go on or can also go online with I can do it I can. Can also go on like you know. All those accounts crazy. That's what I okay, but you're just speculating. You don't have any proof that or or do you know what? I don't have any proof of that I don't approve. Have critic probably do it? And Kirk? Is probably a guy called coup, which is on a farm for a long time, so he speculated that he someone that was in the industry for wide, but not. Approved that. Kicked it, but from all the action than everything it all points to cook. Irene so in a moment we're gonNA. Talk a little bit more about what happened.

Back to my conversation with his Heeb Awan. So, we don't know exactly how. Kirk got into twitter's internal systems. However Once. He or she did then what'd he do or or she do with their power? So. Kirk than they went to buy I think. Start with by notes I'm coin base. And the see your finance and he made it account Egypt first of all. What did it was did with other? Account. Okay, which means when you log in, it asks you to do a second type of security, which is hopefully. If you're in the crypto space, you have used something like Hugo, authenticate or key, and you're not using text message based second factor authentication. Where they sent a code your phone because otherwise if he gets swaps than than having no. Buyer so. Removed that and then keep going good thing. They added wall a secondary second. You know Autodata so now. I'll give example like you have my username seep, so they moved to a FE, and they're also removed. Jane, Email. And then they. Did possible reset. So the new email guard, the chain deposited garden the account. and. tweeted whatever they wanted. Well, and what were they tweeting? So, they were tweeting that you know. About Co. Ed Nineteen I believe like you know because of Covid, we like helping people. I don't remember the wording. Health Has Something and they said Back. And this is video any comments in YouTube. Actually they were so good that frankly sometime I get like you know Oh my God like the able to make it like a secondary thing. That's real you know and like, but this happens pretty commonly, and and it's happening for almost two years now i. It, really is the kind of thing where people think it's real I honestly. Had created a question for you, which is who are the people who are savvy enough to own bitcoin and know how to send it, but not savvy enough to spot. What to me seems like an obvious scam. Actually went on the Internet and are tweeted out this thing same thing I said like who are those people who can have sophisticated enough to buy Bitcoin, but knowledge to. Send. Bitcoin but I think leap Dick's everything. Like I agree people think okay. Let's give it a chance. You know it's like a lottery ticket. You know people may be, but they think what if this is true and other than that. If you like an must happening there, actually flaunted, be efforts on twitter. All the time with people are donating money on twitter, but they don't ask for anything they say hey, can you give me your Alfred Egland who this every day, so he will dollars to off fifty dollars for every person everyday. You'll say. Retreat this. I'll give you this money. So this happens right now and obviously As hit audible, read like you know when viewed come in people, people forget everything that you know. We have so many Ponzi scheme like so many scattered that happened that exist today could if I come to unity Laura investment scheme, which is a pretty good you know. He hit all the MACHIDA. But it only gives you five percent. You may not listen to that. Say Hey, Lord the Child who may tennis money tomorrow. You may skip everything. Cocaine is thousand and ten dollars tomorrow. Okay I'll take the risk from doing that. Hopefully I'm sure my listeners are savvy enough to know if it sounds too good to be true. But people do that I. Think I have estimated that around like maybe I. Just in this journal given us cam like. He put a lot of tens of millions of dollars and well not last week, but no, not over time overtime. Yeah, yeah, we'll be sending money, so there are enough food. I guess yeah over I mean for last week. The hackers did net about a little over thirteen bitcoin, which was about one hundred twenty thousand dollars, although analysts said that about twenty, thousand of it seems to have come from a suspicious address that they actually think controlled by the hackers to kind of make it look like this was legit and people were actually sending money. But then also by the way they could have netted more. However, Cuevas said that it did prevent more than one thousand customers from sending about two hundred and eighty thousand dollars worth of Bitcoin to the twitter hackers so oriented, so let's talk a little bit also about just what happened in twitter which was? Twitter blog posts. Hackers a targeted. Thirty accounts for forty five of those they reset the password and sent tweets from those accounts for eight of them. They actually downloaded that counts data, and then for thirty sixty legitimate direct message inbox, including one elected official from the Netherlands, and it was who. What do you think they could do with such information? I think it's A. Black, man that I've been talking to you about what happened with sin sopping. Let's think about it if you have first all that fool Phoolan that why didn't put? It wasn't like planned. I don't believe it was just like in the move in the heat of happened. BANDAIDS slaves. They clearly guy who just got drunken pretty might do everything but I think if you have access to like anyone, social media, proper social media like I have been I've received. Messages. And I but I don't believe that I think we have forged around. Believe the electoral, so, but if you have someone should media that maybe confidential information that can be misused by Stacey when leg if you do about it on dedic messages, a you know that's not confident that even with the journalist visceral broads. You know so I. Don't know who the information was. What fast, but that's video very very concerning and I believe this may happen on facebook or other social media from his. Because to same. Attack Factor. Yeah I definitely think that this is. One of those cases where it makes you want to just use encrypted social messaging APPS. Such as like signal or something, maybe what's up? So, let's just also talk a little bit about what we said before about how the hackers were able to remove two factor authentication on these accounts. Well, actually what they did I was. They changed the email address. And then the chain Laras Oh, actually bid on a there was A. There was an email. There was a blog post by somebody who had the at six twitter account, and they said they believed that the hackers change the address, but that when that happened, it did not send a notification to the original email address, but not I don't know if this person was surmising, you know six hundred interest in history, those belong to a hacker. Their the community of Hackers Gobi Twenty six hundred. That's like a court for hackers right. Not a quarterback, just like community for hackers and you were the hacker who ended up homeless anywhere. They will do attack into I think he would to. And he went into multiple you as homeless, but he was a hacker. And oxygen community belong to sixty name. Is this secretly off? I believe his name. And, but yes, but I think the first drift was removed and then. moved. To the letter. Control of it now thought it was the reverse, but either way. In Like for any of us who are in the crypto space who have been? Keeping up with our security and using things like Google. or UB and avoiding. Text message based to a or or any kind of to a based on our phone number. What? Can we take away from this like? Is there any advice that you have for Crypto? People on how they can protect themselves if the services that we use have loopholes like this. Let's not that'll be biased in obviously you know. Will. Finding here, but that's what we do, right. We work, but a lot. Actually I am surprised at how many a compromise them security argue out stocking some customer yesterday and they do You know an extra seat is probably the most I can tell you I know. We are making like a faces, but at same part exit. She's most prominent used offer manager for probably ninety ninety nine percent of the word. What would you recommend instead? Use a password manager, anything manager pretty much everything in the top five six. It stood, you know. Don't cheat on family plan. out on like those like a caveman. This company go with a better company. Even if you don't go the final leg, that's fine at least hell better company like Dourthouse I'm plan because no fan mace. You make you very vulnerable to now you're putting your own life on risk, but everyone who is in the time is. You know and the third party. Don't give out your telephone. Number molasses everywhere. You know like. Don't go to like you. Know have different email address if you want to. And you let you. At Google. Authentic get off your. There's something at one time I have statistics, said ninety five percent of people who are like major changes. Do not have to a fait. Sms I'm talking more to a and I think ninety nine percent of those are what you estimates to say. The people who've been additives Everyday I have started I deal with at least two or three people who get up everyday and came and we had some of the to affair, and I can get into that lot of people into the spark that they were not believe enough not to change it. please. Don't please don't be those people, but I can tell you like I've spent people and I said do this. Man How much time did it like five minutes six league. Logistics you Donald and APP, you know. have to familiar face. You know if you are very cautious, taken for a number, but I can tell you that Khomeini would make this mistake. Ordering will end and it you know, and in the end I did lose industry learn. That's was part. There was still use the same SMS to a fait. The dating did not happen to them. Again happened again. Because if it happens to once, you become more, you know your motorcycle getting out again. If they have found something and something, they just do for fun, and and you know what I because obviously I'm. Biased in a way that the. Customer. Time I've been a victim four times a feed Logar they can. What would you do? Please please please setup. SMS elected more music episodes into gear and please get family plan these I. Know You're saving their ten twenty dollars per months, but in the end you know if you call it a, it's like insurance. You can live without insurance to. But like you know. The one day you need insurance when you need it.

A Tennis Star Catches COVID-19
"Welcome the no challenges remaining. It is Sunday. June twenty first twenty, twenty I am Ben Rothenberg I was working on posting are editing an episode that I recorded a couple days ago with buddies and frequent guests, this show remobilize into all and Louisa Thomas also this episode for the beginning of it. round table talking about the open their plans etcetera etcetera. Then a couple less than an hour ago, there was a posted popped up. I think I dream and remained Toumani. Join me again hello. Hello. Irene was the first one is. If I saw a post, this poster came up on your instagram feed, and can you describe what you saw instagram? Basically posted a photo of himself with a mask, announcing that he is back in Monaco and tested positive for covid nineteen an he apologized for possibly endangering others so yeah, it was him basically disclosing that he has positive, and as we know agree, gorgeous got back from Croatia where he was playing in the Adria tour and a couple of days before that he was playing in Belgrade as well, so he's playing Novak store, and yeah, and we mentioned that obviously on the podcast we recorded two days ago. I it it should be noted that we've seen many patriots of Griego over the past couple of weeks. But that's the first pitcher. We've seen what I'm wearing a mosque. Stu Point to money no I think. Yeah, so this is sort of tenses. Thing hopefully it get to a Rudy Gobert moment in tennis where Gregoire realized I have nothing fallen close attention, paying close attention to the Adria tour, but grew on court yesterday a Saturday in Croatia playing a match inside our Croatia as part of this Adria series traveling around the Balkans he was in. Serbia and we talked about this. A bunch on the show and I think I will probably still. Post the show recorded before, but I feel like this will change the tenor of its I want to post these. Get this one up I throw show that we are connected to reality more than maybe the other episode from two days ago because I think as Louisa, early people say on the show like. In these times a lock change short period of time, this is obviously a big moment for tennis. One that I think it's fair to say that we all feared was very possible with looking at Adria series, which is exhibition event sort of started by Novak Djokovic determined director. Quote Unquote was Georgia Djokovic of ex brother. It was being held in Belgrade and a few other planned stops around the Balkans They just actually after the news of Dmitrov positive test. They just can't sold the final match of today's session in. Montenegro which was supposed to host next weekend had already said thanks, but no thanks to Adria tour canceled their leg of the event. We sort of imagined Asia tour, which was an event. Whichever one you twenty? How about you described? He described what what we saw because he posted a bunch of photos. From recent days what Adrian Tour Bend like the got people concerned something this. Business was sending. The optics are not good. Let's put it charitably that way. Yes essentially what we've seen is What is a very regular event in very abnormal times you know? Whether it's you look on twitter on on streams on on Youtube big crowds in the stadium at Novak's Club scene players. And hands and invading each other's personal space and Interacting with fans you've seen videos of. Them are on the out in a club stripping together. and. Will these images that would be normal in normal times, but these aren't normal times, and it makes you cringe a bit. And so there there there's been tons of criticism and. Of course. Rich kind of. Received a lot of criticism for an we actually spoke. To US ball. And he said kind of that. He's aware of the criticism from the West. But you know what while things may be bad in the UK or the, us, it's not. It's not the same in Serbia. And, yeah, and for that reason you know people have been kind of reacting to that and reacting badly, and that's kind of where we. Can I add? They also had a kids day. That had a lot of kids. We've seen the photo of that as well and they've had a football match, and they've had a basketball match in Croatia. They went to a concert with Donovan John August the new version others the other day, and the thing is you have players who came from countries. Who aren't Serbia and Croatia in that? You have you have players someone like Gregoire? Who flew from the states, then winces Bulgaria, possibly also to Monaco. You also have such as Vera. Vera who's traveling from different places Sasha's also saddlebrook for quite a big portion of the quarantine time you have people traveling from different places, and they got off the plane, and you see the video of them getting off the plane and immediately hugging Novak, and immediately being welcomed people into walking around the no masks I don't understand how you can get a flight and already know that that person that person didn't have time to get tested, so that already was
Remembering Fallen Plants with Ken Druse A Way to Garden With Margaret Roach June 1, 2020
"In your introduction you were talking about just turquoise labels yeah there's so many labels and I mean I can't even I can't even talk about it. I mean think and plant delights for example. Yes I think that. Half of the herbaceous plants I've planted or more have died. I have one oriental. Poppy and I've probably tried to grow. I duNno seven. Ten Oriental poppies out. And you know in those days. We were so intrigued with the latest thing the newest thing the untried and true thing so a lot of the things that we lost were not really weren't going to be good garden plants but some of them were right along and some of them just weren't tested yet in our areas and so on and so forth but we gave it ago we stretched. We pushed the limits and gave it a go. Think of we had that money back but we had the experience. We got the memories Hon. I remember going to the garden of John Kerry who who died recently crate gardener in Texas and His Garden Spin Open to the public for many many years. And it was called Pecker Wood. And now it's called the John Ferry Garden in honor of him and in one bed they had plants in this one area of this one bad things quite prominent but there were this. There was this aggregation of labels all stuck in the ground. Like soldiers tight together. You know like a pin cushion but giant right and it was hilarious and it was all the plants that were gone It was the memory of those plants. It was a graveyard mouse graveyard. Yeah the white labels all lined up look like tombstones. So let's talk about some of them. Actually you know what should I do poetic reading since we've already had some music so? I do a poetic. Reading is if if this is my favorite poem. I think ever it is. And it's by the Great. Jeffrey be Charlesworth. Also Sadly departed a great gardener garden. Quite near mind that I visited. I was lucky enough to visit. He was a leader in the North American Rock Gardens Society. Did you ever meet him? Yes I did wonderful. Yeah so he wrote this. This poem called. Why did my plant die? You're already laughing trod on it. Yeah so here's how it goes. You walked to close. You tried on it. You dropped a piece of sod on it. You hold it down you weeded it. You planted it the wrong way up. You grew it in a Yogurt Cup but you forgot to make a whole. The soggy compost took its toll. September storm November drought. It heaved in March. The roots popped out you watered. With urbicide you scattered bonemeal and wide attracting local omnivores who eight-year plant and stayed for more. She left it. Baking in the Sun while you departed at a run to find a spade perhaps a trowel. Meanwhile the plant threw in the towel. You planted it with crown. Too High. The soil washed off. That explains why to High Ph at hated line. Elastic needs a gentler climb. He left the root ball wrapped in plastic. You broke the routes. They're not elastic. You Walk to close you try to get you dropped a piece of sod on it. You splash the plant with more oil. You should do something to your soil too rich to poor such wretched health. Your Silas Clay. Soil is filth. Your plant was eaten by a slug. The growing point contained a bug. These aphids are controlled by aunts. Who Milk the juice. It kills the plants in early spring your gardens mud. You walked around. That's not much good with heat and light. You hurried it. You worry that you buried it. The poor plant missed the mountain air. No heat no summer mugs up there you over fed it ten ten ten forgot to water it again. You hit it sharply with the hose. You used a hand without arose. Perhaps you sprinkled from above. You should have talked to it with love. The nursery mailed it without roots. You killed it with those gardening boots you walked to close you trod on it. You dropped a piece of sod on it. I'm crying. I just love him. I just loved him and his books. Were the opinionated Gardner. Was that what his greatest book was. That was the name of it. You mentioned Rock Garden. Rock gardeners are really they? They like to be punished. They tried artists plants of all they have a high hardest group plants from seed. And yes. Oh My Gosh. I can't even keep Diana's alive more than one year right. Yeah yeah so so okay so. Let's yeah plant slightly over there Hon. No I was thinking about over the years. It's hard to remember because they're not here right. And so you know you're looking. You think what I but I was thinking and I remember. I had a collection of Oak Leaf. Hydrangea and my favorite. Was snowflake semi double double really and it was about six feet tall. And I discovered after hurricane Irene. That hydrangea corker Is Flood intolerant? I lost them all. Oh and just recently. I got a text from my friend. Heidi and it had a photograph of something blooming in it and it was my favorite Siberian Iris. Which is a kind of short one. Among summer sky from nine hundred thirty five and I had that plan for about forty years but when I planted here it got a little shady better also got four and I lost it and the thing about that is if you don't plants and it was hard for me. I got that from someone in from an old garden because it's not easy to well now it's a little easier to find that it wasn't then it all it sky blue and white just beautiful and now. I can get it back because I shared that plant. I was thinking about arose that grew for many years. It's a rambler kind of purple colored. Rambler you'll Shin Blau. I believe you say V. E. L. C. H. E. N. B. L. A. You may be awesome. Yeah and and he just it was just that and I can just see the place I mean I could see out the window the place where it stood all those years where grew all those years and I think I don't even know what I don't even know if I remember what befell it you know but I keep wondering like with your IRA why don't I have it again. Why didn't I replace it right away? says it was just so beautiful. It was a a feature in the flower garden at Wave Hill. That was the first place I had seen it in New York City and so I had gotten it because I was so enchanted by it there. So that's a plant. I don't know if I killed it. I don't I'M NOT GONNA
The Future of Restaurants During COVID-19
"But of all the places we like to gather now shutdown by this pandemic restaurants are also some of the hardest hit so today. We're going to talk to people in the industry. The chefs the restaurant tours to find out what they're trying to do to survive for them for us for everyone. I'm Dr Sanjay Gupta. Cnn's chief medical correspondent and this is corona virus fact versus fiction restaurants. Sort OF BOTTLE. The zeitgeist their community. And it's where people celebrate as not just about eating. That's David Chang. He's a chef and the founder of the momofuku group which has restaurants around the world. He's also the host of the Netflix show ugly delicious if food establishments were important. People wouldn't want it so badly. There's just somethin'. That is a connection to just being human besides tasting delicious foods. Chang calls restaurants quote cultural banks and worries about the erosion. This pandemic has had on all aspects of the dining experience. We literally take ninety percent of cash flowing. Give it back to everybody else. On top of trying to make delicious food and build organizations however small they might be no one gets in this business at least that. Iron Meyer so they can make a ton of money they do it because of the life and the positive impact you can have both on yourself and others around you and you that away that that. That's that's going to be pretty brutal closing. His restaurants in March was extremely difficult. He had to furlough around. Eight hundred workers in this week decided to close to of his restaurants reopening others. Maybe even harder. You have to reconfigure literally every decision of how you operate in a restaurant. It was hard enough to begin with. How do you taste food? How you order food. How do you sanitize now? How do you do contact with delivery? You even allowed transaction via credit cards anymore. So now you there's like all of these things now that are going to be expensive. Chang doesn't have the answers yet. But he thinks he knows what it's GonNa take. Define I just think that we're going to need some ingenuity and creativity to sort of align some mutual problems that we have in this country particularly in the food space and sort of reconfigure. How this whole works on his twitter feed. Chang has also been asking people to send him photos of reopened restaurants in cities like Taipei and Hong Kong. It's fascinating to look at them. Some of the photos show. Police Systems delivering coffee. Temperature checks at the door and customers. Even receiving full body disinfectant sprays. Don't worry with their clothes on too many. These measures may seem a little over the top. The common thread is we have to actually make impossible hap and that gives me optimism really genuinely does because these kinds of impossible tasks that sort of her. My brain are what I most attracted to. And we can't have anyone working off a different playbook everyone needs to be working the same playbook every restaurant every business in the absence of a so called restaurant playbook the National Restaurant Association which is a lobbying group is doing what it can to try and offer some guidelines for reopening obviously frequent hand washing some element of distancing some element of face covering certainly reduced interaction between the host. And the guest. That's Larry Lynch Senior Vice. President of Science and Industry at the National Restaurant Association Lynch said it's already begun. Restaurants are already testing out new methods. Everyone's looking visit different ways just this weekend. We saw one of the towns here in Florida. Closed down one of their street to the restaurant. Tours could pull the chairs out into the street. If you're used to going out as being a curated. Dining Experience Lynch describes the post pandemic world as sort of a safety focused obstacle. Course I would say what you're probably GonNa find is before you get there. You're going to look online and look what the instructions are in that particular restaurant what their expectations or. It may tell you to wait outside. May Ask you to place your order online. It may tell you that once you get outside. Send them attacks and let them know. You're outside wait once you're inside. You may wait a bit before the waiter or waitress actually comes up and greets you greeting maybe something as simple as confirming your order rather than taking your order. Once you die. You may find that your table is included as fasces. Wasn't it passed. It's going to be cleared all at once rather than sporadically during the dining experience. When you're dining probably won't see the manager come over to ask how your view was and whether or not you enjoyed yourself. Restaurants are going to have to tailor safety measures to suit their capabilities and it is possible. Not everyone can physically accommodate these recommendations for example Irene. Lee doesn't see her Boston. Restaurant may may hosting sin diners anytime soon. We're a small restaurant so we have about thirty six seats. Which means the possibility of socially distancing inside the building is basically none but Lee. Who was a finalist for this years? James Beard Rising Star Chef Award has still managed to find a silver lining. We are pretty much going to have to change our whole model which sounds scary but is also a really exciting opportunity. So how do we re imagine what a restaurant can be? Water restaurant can do what restaurant staff are capable of Lee in her employees are already starting to answer those questions. For example her restaurant may may is open for delivery and is also hosting virtual dumpling classes. The restaurant is delivering groceries to healthcare workers and selling pantry staples to the community like milk and eggs. The goal to help customers avoid the grocery store because I think supermarkets are going to feel unsafe for a lot of people for a long time and I just think like we have the ability to get almost any of those products probably at a better price at Mamie and so it would be kind of unconscionable to not try to use that to help keep people safer and to make their lives more. Convenient Lee is taking this time to rethink how a restaurant should operate. And she's hoping the industry is a whole does the same especially in the areas where it was struggling even before the pandemic. I think that this is a huge opportunity for us to keep talking about the biggest issue that our industry house which is Labor on the issue of jobs and low wages and like terrible workplace environments. That is always been the bane of this industry. I am hoping that the compensation model could be altered and cross training could become more prevalent. But that's the long term in the short term lease preoccupied with just keeping may may afloat even though she says. The survival of the restaurant isn't her biggest concern. If mamie doesn't exist in in five or ten years that's totally fine with me. I'm going to be really pissed off if there are no cool. Independently owned quirky restaurants to eat at like I cannot eat every day I refuse and so I think that for me. The question about Future is almost a little bit less important but for a lot of people in this industry is all we have one thing I've learned. Is that the restaurant. Industry is full of dedicated creative leaders and is someone who enjoys dining out. I'm optimistic. They're going to find ways to meet the challenges ahead and keep this important part of our culture alive. It's definitely GONNA be an uphill battle but I'm GonNa do what I can to support my favorite places with takeout orders and contributions to out of work employees. They could really use the help
Irene Kraegel :: The Mindful Christian
"Our guest today is Irene cradle Irene. Nice to meet you. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thank you for having me. So I've really been looking forward to this conversation since we connected on email and I'm I'm really looking forward to unpacking of this topic with you but let's start by just having you tell us about your background sure. My professional background is as a psychologist so I was trained at the Chicago. School of professional psychology and I work as a clinical psychologist Until about since about two thousand three and I've been in a few different kinds of clinical settings and Most recently have been Calvin University where I work at the Center for Counseling and wellness. Which is the Student Counseling Center There Kelvin. And that work has really been? What's brought me to mindfulness. Which is why I'm here today. but yeah professionally mostly the mental health field And I have also been in the world of Christian faith my whole life as well and again. That's been my more. Recent professional interest is now being a psychology and mindfulness in with Christian worldview. I'm so I'm sure I could say much more about myself by a leave it at that. It's conversation Anna. I want to go into a little bit of that and how you got interested in mind from us you mentioned that was a little bit Part of what? You've been doing the past several years one hundred that I come about of the show up if I came up because I was hearing about everywhere so in the field of mental health. It was a hot topic But it was the hot topic that didn't seem to be going away just kept popping up and As I heard about it it was starting to sound like an approach to mental wellbeing mental health. That had some depth to it and I liked that There's a lot of mental health. That's that's very effective but his focus. John Maybe efficiency and Tips about managing different different challenges. And things that can be very helpful but as I applied those in my own life. I didn't feel like they had the kind of lasting impact that I wanted to personally and I didn't always feel comfortable recommending those as the only thing for my clients as well so when I heard about mindfulness It sounded like something that could really have a lot to offer for my clients who are struggling with anxiety. Depression all kinds of emotional suffering and it was also a point in my own life where I was experiencing some emotional suffering myself Coming to grips with some depression. That had really been there. My whole life but That wasn't really Resolving her healing in the way I would like it to despite a lot of other very positive coping skills I was using an different approaches I had taken felt like I was really longing for something deeper. Soza professional interest. It was a personal interest And having gone to a few trainings that were really connected to the world of mental health. I decided I wanted to go through the mindfulness based stress reduction training not as a teacher as a student And the classroom. I WanNa be a teacher like Eddie. Taken the classic. No how do you know you wanNA teach so thank you for taking it you yes. It's phenomenal. It's such a great class And I've found that within really the first one to two sessions of 'em bs are I was personally experiencing some really deep transformation So I I you know people in the world of science talk about these brain shifts and physical changes. That happen when we experienced mindfulness meditation. I've felt that in my brain within the first couple of weeks that I was thinking differently I was feeling differently And it was giving me a whole new set of tools to manage emotional difficulty so I very quickly became a believer And from that point on I got pretty excited about bringing it to students. I was working with at Calvin University And in that context Making sure that I was blending had with The the Christian faith that's important to the university as well so that was kind of what initially drew me to it and that was about Seven years ago or so. It's interesting as you were mentioning having some hesitancy around some of the techniques and tips and tricks for patients who are suffering. The image came to mind of of bailing out a boat. And they're just constantly springing these leaks and wouldn't it be great if there is a way that you could maybe build a boat that wasn't gonNA spring leaks or maybe not quite as many and this to me is one of the values of practices like mindfulness. And not the only one you know there are others as well. The ways in which we can build up our resiliency our ability to work with challenging circumstances to really a soak in the positive times as well not just about The negative ones. And how do we deal with that also? Really be present for the joys of life as well so thinking and one of the phrases I find myself using is that mindfulness was a gift that helped me unlocked the other gifts so it wasn't that those other things weren't also useful. I find myself drawing heavily on cognitive behavioral therapy for example for myself and others Noticing how thought patterns can be distorted noticing alternative thoughts that I might engage with. There's a lot of really good concrete. Cpt out there and other similar approaches And we have things like exercise that we know are really good for a mental health and social connection. Good eating habits. I mean the list goes on and on the things that are good for us But somehow it was mindfulness. It allowed me to access the benefits of those so Sunday like cpt. In the past. I might have engaged with those exercises in some of that work can just found that he had locked into a power struggle in my head. So I might work at identifying a maladaptive thought pattern But before I knew it I was just in this argument with myself about whether that was really maladaptive or not. So mindfulness has has given me a new tool to step out of that power struggle at my head and receive all those other benefits as well now can notice those thoughts but without so much gripping onto mammoth struggling with them Same for exercise him for relationships. You know I can be. I can enjoy social interaction much more now that I have that tool of mindfulness That allows me to kind of watch. My thoughts watch my feelings. Go by So I continue to to practice and preach all of the mental health tools out there and I find for me. I needed mindfulness to really be able to benefit from them. You know it's fascinating that you bring up cvt and getting caught in one's own thoughts. We were just in our in person. Mindfulness Group on Monday nights going through the cognitive distortions and that this is a group in working for several years in twenty thirty some people and they're grounded mindfulness and how their their approach to this. Their observations of these distortions as they show up was really interesting and maybe a little bit different than others. Who might not have that That firm foundation of mindfulness tour on and some kind of curious in your own practice. If you've run into working with students patients or even others just in your daily life on things like cognitive distortions and just her ability to notice them of that's been supported by mindfulness absolutely it. It seems to me that you can't work on it or modify it. If you don't know it's fair I mean to state the obvious so I. I know for myself when I first started practicing. It was rather surprising and shocking to me. How many judgmental thoughts are streaming through my mind? At every moment. I had no idea that was going on I knew I was maybe a bit cynical negative but I didn't realize the extent to which there is kind of a constant barrage of negatively towards myself super helpful. They're not as good when I noticed that sort of this. Oh that's so interesting like maybe there's another way to relate to myself And that was like I said a really big turning point for transformational and that has to be foundation of good. Cpt or cognitive behavioral work. If we want to modify those patterns we have to know their their
Irina Falconi on Life as a Tennis Pro in the Coronavirus Era
"I have. Nfl Coney as you guys know. She's a w shape pro hugely affected by the suspension We just got announced on Monday morning. That there's no w Ta play until May At at this point now the way things are going I mean I'm in New York Arenas in Orlando I'm expecting that to be pushed back more Irene out. Let's start with. What is your life like these days? Well to be honest I just got back from Sam's Club where I was able to stock on quite a bit of dried and canned goods Just because I've been hearing whispers and rumors about actual You know we're probably going to end up getting quarantined in our own homes So if that's the case I mean we're just trying to prepare ourselves early. We're not really coming contact with anyone other than people that live in the house So thankfully there is lots of trails outside that you're able to go out and no run sprint. Do Whatever You can to kind of keep your fitness up because I mean as of now as of last night The USCCA center which is only five minutes away. Where I usually train it's close. It's completely shut out. Shut down and locked up so unless you actually go to some public courts public facilities where you're not really hitting with anyone that has corona virus It's kind of hard right now and The thing is you don't WanNa be hitting too early. You don't want to peak too early since as of now it's May second. It can be even further than that so it might just be very light hitting if that for the next couple weeks but just maintaining fitness. I think is the most important thing and thankfully. My fiance built a boxing gym in the garage. So we are good to go on that on that front but Tom Yeah. You are lucky to have that because I think a lot of a lot of players will be desperate for space and room if they live in an apartment especially you have a Nice House. You have that garage. I mean that there is some positives and all this chaos when all I started unfolding in Indian Wells cancelled and all this was happening and it was like okay might be four to six weeks. Spent my initial thought was like oh well okay look. Income is obviously a problem for players. But sometimes you guys have injuries that last four to six weeks. Sometimes you have illnesses that last two to four weeks in the grand scheme of things. It doesn't seem like a very big chunk of time but now that things escalated so severely it could be three months could be six months it could be. I don't know and that's the hard part is when you're sick and injured you kind of have somewhat of an idea like hey. I'm working towards this goal now. It's like I'm working towards what? Yeah that's the other thing because for example. Let's say you do have six weeks of where you're trying to rehab from an injury. You have the option if you want to go somewhere if you WANNA go and travel if you WANNA go just go to the beach for a couple of days or anything like that. You have that luxury if you want it now in this case it's like Oh man. Flights to Costa Rica and Ecuador in Puerto Rico are like less than one hundred dollars. It's so tempting to want to go out and travel. But you can't so in a sense you know a lot of tennis players. We tend to complain that the season is long. It's very very You know it's it's tough on the body So the fact that we have this time to kind of just almost regroup. It's weird time in the year because it season just kinda started But Yeah I think it's just it's very very weird. I don't think that there's another word to put it another word that you can really describe it because I mean with the Olympics coming up I mean I'm in a situation where I have a special ranking so does that mean that my special ranking Kinda freezes because once I start my first tournament I only have a year to use up all my special ranking tournaments. So that's another thing that we're just have absolutely no clue whatsoever and with the Olympics. Coming up I mean. Do we know whether that's GonNa Happen? I mean a lot of girls are just in limbo right now. It's never a good place to be in when you're uncertain So as of now I'm just taking it day by day to be honest. I'm just enjoying the crap out of it. There's no other way to see it. You just have to see it as an opportunity And one of the things that you know you can do is Ago Christiane was posting different. Things that you can kind of do while you're in this state and You know whether it's facetime ing with people that you probably haven't talked to in a while. Learning new hobby cleaning house from you know had to tell there. There's a lot of things that can be done during this time. So I think that if you go about it the right way you can see it as a very positive thing whether it's for me whether for the world I think we just have to see it in a positive light. You'd have some positive spin on this thing. It's nice to hear but it's also I. You mentioned Christiaan heff players been talking a lot of you guys been communicating with each other. A Lot I know you're probably not hanging out a lot but has there been a conversation between you guys. I mean at the end of the day. I think a lot of the players are just kind of Speaking the same boys right now in unison which is suffering Soleil. Y'All do not go and be around other people do not put yourself at risk and do not put others at risk So I think we're all trying to find ways on how to have the new ways to work out at home because that's pretty much. What a lot of players are doing. I know I was speaking to Madison and she said. Hey We got some board games you know. So there's that so yeah. I mean there's there's a lot to do and I think a lot of players I mean it's that uncertainty but I have a feeling that they're gonNA come back pretty
Dining with Singapore Airlines
"With us. We Have Anthony. Mcneill the global director of food and beverage at Singapore Airlines. Antony thank you so much for joining us now. Normally I would be worried about interviewing head of food and beverage for an airline because you know. Generally food on airplanes doesn't have a great reputation but Singapore has a completely different mindset when it comes to food and beverage. How would you describe your outlook on how you approach food at Singapore so we take a lot of emphasis on popular local favorite surfer in Singapore? We're looking for the most authentic dish in the Hawk markets if we're in the US we're looking for the most unique food and beverage items to the destinations that we fly to fly from a great example is Grew up in Seattle looking at sustainable seafood opportunities that we can tap into for air flights and then also looking for great organic produce. So he's we took a day trip down to Medford to look for the world's best cheese which was Announced last year with rogue creamery. So a lot of our competitors aren't as engaged market whether it be local sustainable but also supporting local communities to bring the best food and beverage opportunities to simple aliens. And let's just talk about your job. So in your purview. You've got in-flight for all classes of service you got lounges. You know the winds like what? Don't you do Well I we've got We've got lots under Irene and we always say that. If we shake the plane anything's fall. That would be the pilot and the Jet Fuel. Everything else belongs to inflight service delivery sir. That's everything from toilet paper newspapers all the way through Crewe Dom Perignon and Ted on Jay which joined US last year. So how does one become global director of food and beverage at an amazing airline like Singapore? Like all people at some point. They've gotta start somewhere so I started as a as a dishwasher and kitchen hand at an airport hotel some thirty two years ago and Melvin. And Yeah I worked my way through so I was still at school working during the week working on weekends. And then of course the did you study culinary management or a hospital studies culinary management. And then you know. Through the course of the years you know through hotels restaurants catering facilities and then eventually moved out of Australia to work. Overseas worked all over the all over the Walsh Lanka China for several years Hong Kong Malaysia Malaysia. For several years you know through number hotel organizations premium hotel organizations and of course catering institutions that supply airlines. And then of course I was invited to join a lodge practicing airlines and I was responsible for the global food and beverage development and also managing the Asia Pacific catering for that airline so you started in hotels big kitchens and set menus in big dining rooms. What was the biggest shock when you transition to providing meals on a metal or composite tube flying forty thousand feet in the sky the space and the height restrictions to pack a meal in-flight limits obviously opportunity to do overly creative high appetizers and called meals? But in the same focus. It's not much different to circulate. The goes into a restaurant. You have a certain amount of space you can work with. It comes in a foil kit and the crew. Help us to move from the foil onto a plate and or a casserole depending on which Kevin you you may be in. And there's a lot of science in the air our taste buds or doled historically in-flight meals are known to be salty. And what are the scientific reasons BECO- into the food that you serve on board. Yeah so a lot of what we do is look at authentically local recipes. So we look at what? The Chili pastes may be used for a Singapore Indonesia. Malaysia is the coconut milk. The right milk we're GONNA make sure the ingredients are right in the first place. The cooking techniques obviously important and in Singapore where we test and develop new dishes. We have a pressurized cabin. Which is I think. It's quite widely renowned with Singapore Airlines. Where we go in. We close the doors especially hyperbaric chamber. We bring the cabin to shoot. And then we we do the test in the cook and we taste so where we see opportunities to adjust the recipe from an authentic dish to match an inflight experience. That's where we do the modifications off the back of that. We need to make sure that you know we're securing the best produce and of course that we can deliver it exceptionally well through that in flood experience. Now we get a lot of questions about you know. Why did you taste buds change? What is Flavor Experience Change? And of course when you fly your sinuses dry out and that'll say impacts you your taste in your in your flavor profiles but the new generation of aircraft coming through the fifties eight hundred eighty s the seven eight sevens and obviously the new triple seven x which is coming on. Those cabinet arms have changed dramatically over time. And the introducing more humidity into the Kevin. Spacey pressure is at low altitude and that really allows us to give you a better dining experience a bit of drinking experience the program you know as we move forward you know. The legacy of old aircraft is slowly being retied so we can continue to focus on great. Well when you have a different because you still have some set triple seven's will you have a different menu for a triple seven than you will for an eighth? Hr Fifty or seventy seven. The Old Dominion of the same but again we also offer salt and pepper on our trees up. So if you feel the need to make the adjustment you can do it. And Tailor it to your. What are your absolute knows for an airline menu? Deep Fried foods generally just uncut it because obviously the ovens a combination of steam dry heat and of course the food. It's obviously best coming straight from a straight from the cook for that crunch value. You know I think that's probably really it and I think if everything else if it's manage well and cooked With the appropriate methods. We're in pretty good place. What is actually cooked on a plane versus precooked and heated is? You're still cooking. That goes on on a plane. I mean cooking in a sense you know. We don't have pots and pans and guess flames on on an Aircraft Galley but the ovens certainly designed to cook the meals to the next level. So women do the process of inflight catering. The chefs have to apply by seek food process. The have to apply the OUTTA guidelines and also local hygiene authority guidelines to coop the proteins to certain temperature control point. Then they come line. They go through blast chilling to be ready to be packed for in flight. So at that point that cooking on ground allows for the reheating of that stake for example to be cooked medium hoping to the center now. Of course we know when we fly the crew have to sit down. They may be turbulence ovens might be ten on in certain elements may impact your your meal experience but in general we get the right balance to get the meal onto your plate. You know in good order so you can enjoy it fish on a plane to. I'll get on a plane. I can't believe on instagram. How many people say that's repulsive? Didn't you see the movie airplane? This should never be served on a plane. Why people hate fish on a plane so much. I think it's a perception. Perhaps but we you know we sit in the go way to make sure we've got the right fish for inflight fish which is juicy you know retains it's moisture content. That might be caught on. But if you go back and you look at a at a New York locally Anthony. Bodine said years ago and he's book kitchen reservations. You should never eat fish on a Monday after the weekend. Sir You know. I think it's a little bit of apply I think in today's society the fishes fresh. It's best in its peak condition when we get it for in Flight We certainly treat it with respect that it deserves and of course another crew deliver exceptionally well. So neither commentary. You can fold taming economic outlook. Well it's probably from experiences not on Singapore Airlines if I had to guess is a high level. Trend are crafting more vegan options on traditional menus. Or is that still a special meals request that people should put in. I mean certainly Vegan is part of the special meal programming and a lot of our work that we do now without international culinary panel shifts can ranches that wellness pattern here in the US. We certainly give guidance to the chefs about how we see through trends moving into the marketplace by doing so we can tap into their local scene as well and not really understand whether it be Vegan over there be not free or so on how we can leverage that in-flight so I think as we move along deliciously wholesome. He's one about programs which has a number of vegan options but it's a constant evolution of movement so where we say transferring. We'll certainly move towards that but also we need to be respectful of passes experiences as well. You know another frustration people have in-flight is when you want to order the steak and they run out so. Singapore has for very long time had booked the cook so you can do it in advance but putting aside book the Cook for a second. How much do you use math? In determining how much food to load on a plane where it's incredibly complex depending on the sectors that we work with the demographic and And the passenger profile participation we fly and we use a lot of customer insight in customer engagement data to determine those lighting programs so we have a set ratio of meals in structure and of course where we are the Singapore luxuries most popular. We might fly. A high percentage of that way. Stake is perhaps not so popular as an example on an Indian sector. We would learn steak so of course at some point. You may be disappointed that we can't give you the the the meal of your choice. But we certainly try to endeavour to make sure that the loading is right if we see An increase ivory peak of travel holiday season for example we may learn more of one and reduce one of another but it's a constantly evolving patents are crew also give feedback on customer preferences and where we need to adjust. Accordingly will do

You know how to listen to podcasts. Funerals and the PODCAST. Google play Stitcher Apple. Podcast here this one. I haven't read but it looks like intriguing hiring on the poop subject. I always believed the toilet paper trick to Muffle. The poop drop was very very amateur. My friends how does mean high school? They are first class poopers. They poop anywhere. My athletic friend went on a run at the beach. I love that. Yes one on the beach recently and she hopped a low. You popped a load out by some rocks when she felt the way to say it. They've also been known to share a toilet in middle school though. It's not weird. I don't share toyland share more stories but I don't know where funny becomes gross to you. Wait what does that mean. Share toilets like pooping on top of poop. Because that's fine. You're going to get one shave. Never done that. Oh I mean me neither. That's so gross. Look at Middle School. Like with your friends are all the bathroom. Getting Ready to go to the bathroom can do. That is one thing but you don't somebody's poop. Sure I just kidding got it. Smell the smell yeah. Second of all the potential splash third of all the wipe. I feel like it's too dangerous getting that close to somebody else in this feels like a lot. I mean I wasn't like I was like two thousand six hold on this story. Just a little taste audio exclusive and hail Irene just confessed and so did the person in that day poop on top of each other's you're neglecting to say that I was in sixth grade. I don't care. Let's I haven't pooped for years. I have no. I can't with my story. Never mind okay. That's wild this is done. We ever somebody else. I tried the pooping heck where you put the toilet paper in the bowl and it does not make a noise it makes a little noise BS. Love the POD. That's the toilet paper one. Yeah that one doesn't seem like at work Because the paper is not like indestructible. It seems like it would splash. It just like muffles it. I think A bunch of people send US funny state laws. Oh Nice and Illinois. State Law requires that a man's female companion. She'll call him master while out on a date wait. I think that we should do the whole episode on a weird hair. I just did it just now. Okay bye okay. Somebody said how's your knee. It has been done for a while like good. Can I just throw a little? Can Irene put out a cookbook? Oh Yeah I will one day I for sure will at some point. Hell yes. Thank you any suggestions on how to get a toxic person out of your life when you have to see them. Every day. I was going to make a joke but I'm too exhausted by the whole your toxic and I'm a doormat thing. There's going to be like well but there we go. There was least favorite chore to do it now. I want to answer that. Okay no I would just say I think the best way to like if you have to see them every day but like their shitty I would just keep it to the absolute bare fucking minimum of Shit. You talk about like if you'd be like I'm good. How are you? What are you doing this week? I'm Kinda busy at not entertaining. I am too but if somebody's super shitty it's like easier. What was your advice because I oh no. No No the other thing you were. GonNa say the Question. Oh least favorite chore to do as a Kid. I'm really glad this got touched on I for some reason hated dusting so much. I loved dusting. And that's the thing I like it. Now it's very satisfying. Now in my dad knew how much I hated it but he knew how much I wanted to dog. So my dad said if you dust for a month straight like when we need you to dust I'll get you a dog and it was like okay. Dad Get the fucking Kennel Ready. Get the fucking bowls out for the cable. 'cause MOMMA's getting up and like we do. I was like fuck that I hate it. I hate it so much because the oldest I wanted in this world when I was a kid a puppy and my dad's bobby. If you does puppy yeah I really do. I just can't handle on my name. Yes Sein- Hated dishes because I hated the way the water felt when it would even if I was wearing gloves. When it drips onto your when it when it gets onto the front of your shirt which isn't or no. Yeah Yeah I hate a lot but like I can handle it now because I have the gloves that go all the way up. Pasture elbows dishes tricky. Because like I remember vividly one time we're doing the dishes like like early. December and my dad reached into the water company. Dish city picked up a piece of Kit by letting dishwater. He's like you fucking kids better fucking do these dishes more. Yeah that's probably why. Hey dishes so much because great Roselle. Yeah and I I came from a family of a billion was literally always grows and full and there's a layer of ood and on top of the water that's already gray and then there's like old bacon in it and understood washing dishes with filling the sink. I A lot of people fill the saying. I think we watered. It's like a water conservation. That's how my mom does it. Because she lives in that in that town care is. That's hard to stomach. Yeah well she does. She'll put her dishes in a dirty one and then traffic clean like soapy water and then rents like there's always got to be a landing landing spot. I wonder if it actually saves that much water though. I wonder that too. I feel like that's probably the opposite. Because like shower versus bath bath type of IBE see. That's the thing is I would love to figure that out because the bath you can see all the fucking water there but with a shower. You're like it's all going away if I was to close the drain. How much water would there be at the end of my shower? I think I like bats now or I liked abano. Yeah I was about to be like you. Don't fucking like Peyton was sitting right there like hanging out with me. I'd order a whole bunch of pillow covers.

"But the reason a lot of people like why do you respond to the? Hey and not the love and I totally get that. But the reason is love generally doesn't require an interesting response. Like if you comment you're like yes bitch. Fuck it up your body goals. Whatever like I go through and Iheart them like I'm not going to respond to a hundred of them be like thank you. Thanks love you. That's the thing it's like the same thing I'm just saying. Thanks what have you see one. That says some shit. Yeah then. You're it's funny but I only respond to hate comments if I have something interesting worse. Fuck you like not one girl. I back does look good here. There's not one girl who it became like a game for me to see how quickly she'd come off because she doesn't follow me on anything but like even on my second twitter like look excited. I right now like my second twitter shooter. Respond to my second twitter tweets at lightning speed. And I'd be like how the fuck are you doing that? Yeah like she has to have another account that she gets notifications on. That's the only explanation that must be. What actually she responded because I asked her what house listen. I have to know like curious I was like I'm I'm honestly impressed. How do you do it so quickly? And she said and I think that this is worse than having a second account. I'm going to be honest because having a second account like I have a second twitter account but you know what I mean like. I have a dummy instagram account. That whatever but she was like I just I check back to see if you became a better person yet so basically obits. You're talking about four times a day but has to be more because of how quickly she responded. That's fucking hilarious types in my name and it's like oh she. She posted a picture of herself. We what's the what's the delineation of when you become a good person or not. I don't know I fostered a puppy. So maybe that's it. Hey speaking of fear. She gone now a key. He was something he made me realize a lot of things. I think it's very smart. But you fostered. Yeah for sure. So I'm definitely not ready for a full time dog. All-time dog well. Yeah like I couldn't. I couldn't train a puppy right now. I could not go outside. I could not train it not too big for food. I could not train it to sleep in. Its create at night or sleep wherever at night. I couldn't teach it to sit and roll over and Fashions Day like I just. I don't have the time that a puppy needs right now. Damn I did love that Little Pup. He was so cute and he was absolutely beyond fatal for you. You know what though? He's Loki fatal for everyone. I don't think so though because it wasn't like that with pay wasn't like that with me like like he's very 'cause I swear he's very sweet and affectionate and friendly but he like when it was just like chill time he like went over to you. Sat in your lap. You got up. He followed you like he totally loved you. He was a Barry Cutie but the adoptive mom who came over We are sitting in the dining room. Name is Brooke. And then she got up to go to the bathroom and then fish popped his head up and started looking around and then like ran towards the bathroom door was staring out until she came back so he does love her to look just right off meeting. He's super interested in her. Which makes me really happy. Did you like the experience though I did and I learned something really dark about myself over the last few years about animals so for a long time. I thought that I just didn't care about animals anymore. Like when I was growing up I loved animals so much obsessed with them out. Draw pictures of them. I always wanted to have a pet like I was so in love with them and then when I got older when my friends started being the people who would like see a dog on the street and be like. Oh that dog is so cute. Oh my God look at the dog. Eat Dog dog on people looking at cute pictures of puppies and stuff. I didn't really get it. I was so closed off to animals. Like when did I stop loving animals and then I realized this really dark thing. You guys have to give your opinion on this. Let me know if this is like too much pressure on the podcasts kind of intense when I was growing up I mean this was also a very different time Like kids people were feeding their kids like straight up sugar and thought it was like healthy like Sunny D. was considered a healthy drink. Yeah you know what I mean. The nineties baby. This is very different time where we did not know much but And parenting was also very different though because yeah so we had a dog that I absolutely it was fatal for Iron Word Name Star and I loved her so fucking much and my parents kept her outside and she was like an outside dog. Yeah but like all the time all year round you like Pennsylvania winter because she could go into the basement but it was still like she was still tied outside on a leash all the time. I would always want to bring her in so I would be pleased. Let me bring the dog in. And they'd say okay if you give her a bath and whatever but she always runs out and then she runs out and gets dirty and we can't have her running around the neighbor. She was never trained properly because my parents were eighteen year old twenty year old kids. Who got a dog and already had three kids and didn't know what to do so We had this dog who like I hated seeing her outside. I felt like she wasn't being taken care of. She wasn't loved. I loved I loved her to death but like she she was just all over the place so then she one day just disappeared what she probably broke free and then went and dyed somewhere because she was pretty old and she was like whatever and that made me really sad and then I felt like after that it was just this like revolving door of pets where we'd like find a stray and then early star had puppies at one point one of those dogs. We kept one and a lot of them we gave away and then that dog choked on Christmas light guide. Like at eight o'clock in the basement that had fallen whatever died and then we had cats and then we had this cat named named radio and then it would fall me around the neighborhood and go for walks and then it had kittens and then we gave away some of the kittens and then we kept radio died and then I had one cat left a mouse who I loved. I took care of it like raised it with a syringe. Slept with it in my hand to keep warm because the other cats would bite it. Not it eat that cat. Love me like a mother and then I went to college and when I came back one time mouse was just gone and I was like what the fuck what do you mean your mouses and then it was just like I. I just like every time I'd get attached to a pet. They would just disappear or die and then I was just like I can't love animals because and their life span was definitely shorter than most animals. Were like straight up. They weren't like later start. Wasn't going till twelve thirteen years old. She probably did but after she died it felt like it was just like this revolving door so so the cat's weren't living ten years later. I guess has mended. We had a cat named Jasmine and then she died like she just got. I think she got rabies. Actually because she loved to be outdoors she was outdoors a lot. And then one day she just like was literally foaming at the mouth and like freaking the fuck out and then my dad said when she died she literally jumped mid air. Sorry it's not funny. I'm just imagining it. Like a cartoon and also makes you like really freaked out jumped up died and felt like it was like this weird like she had a heart attack or something. I'm laughing out of Discomfort district. Give it. I can't love pets so at one point after a lot of therapy all of my like walls of you can't love me came down and then I was like wait a minute. I love animals such a soft spot for them. I just kept them at such a distance because because it's one in thing and like yeah when when all it that's that's the hardest part about getting a pet is knowing that you will like see all of its life pretty much like and that's super hard and it it definitely we. We never really had. We'd never had a dog. We had like a cat and then we had two cats and And so yeah like it's and we it was. It was like that because you know that when you the second you get that puppy you're like well I got thirteen here and like it's just it's hard. It's ads like get super attached to something like that. One time I saved a bunny. 'cause I think it I think it was getting eaten by cats or something like that happened. And they're like why I picked up the bunny and I brought it in and it was like stale in like shaking and like its leg was broken or something so we nurse this little bunny and I was so happy it was awake and thriving because it was like on the edge of death for this is so fucked up. Are you prepared? Yeah it's so fucked up. I was holding the bunny. That couldn't stand a second ago. Hops full out of my hand falls and breaks its neck like on spot and I was like. Are you fucking kidding me those another thing? We had bunnies that We kept outside in pens. Like I got a bunny pen for them and the neighborhood came in. The kid came and snap their necks so like dude. I saw so many like animal deaths in my adolescence and teen years in college years that I was like. I'm never getting a Pentagon my mouth. My I know second. Mouths snowflake gray loved that mouse. Somehow my mom got somebody to sell her a mouse. That was way too young to be sold so it imprinted on me and thought that I was. Its mother so literally this mouse by day. Three no I think like the first day like Christmas Day I would put it across the room and goes snowflake and come over and crawl up my arm and sit on my shoulder. Like a real. This mouse was my little thing like I was the only thing that newest comfort loved me so much so then one morning it was the fifth day I had it. I woke up and mouse wasn't in her case because she was so tiny she was such a tiny baby. And this is your cat mouse known as this was a mouse mouse. Oh my name. Snowflake snowflake was not in her cage. Snowflake wasn't in her cage. Mouse never had a cage. So snowflake wasn't in her cage so I hopped out of bed through because I knew my parents would be so fucking past because they were like if we get your mouth because the first month I had always lost that shit and we'd always get them but then it was just stressful. So I threw everything from my floor onto my bed. I put out a little bowl like I sat there and waited. I kept waiting to see if the food was eaten. Whatever the end of the day. I'm like where's the mouse looked at the cat. Get it and like whatever so then the end of the night. My parents were like she'll turn up. She's not outside whatever so I took all my stuff off my bed and under my French horn was it's crushed a little body and I could not sleep in my bed for so long because I couldn't stop about how much that mouse just love me so much that it got out of its cage to come sleep with me like it got into my bed. It didn't run away. Wanted to cuddle and then I killed it. Isn't that so fucked up? God I still think about it probably twice a month and like Mash just wanted love and I fucking crush it under a French.

"Oh but let's get. Let's get back to this lovely note that you were saying we go here just like keep me up. Like how many times do I not like speak up to like. I won't defend myself and I get so fucking like talk show about my friends. Well fuck imagine insulting like you like. I've left abusive relationships. I've gone through some pretty hard fucking shit. You think that if somebody was treating me in a way that I didn't want to be treated I wouldn't leave and you've also had friendships that you're not friends with anymore. Yeah this is toxic. Because I'm like oh I don't like having to make myself smaller to be around this person. I'm not going to be around them anymore. Yeah and where are they not around me gets ridiculous? The truth is though I really was only ever your friend because I wanted to cook Thanksgiving dinner. Hey it worked out truly that we have to make that a tradit- yeah obviously okay by Ding Ding Ding Come up with a compromise. Being in a shadow only speak unless spoken to also to be in my shadow. I think because like I've been on Youtube for six years and you just started like what the fuck does that mean if Lawrence started today and I was like hanging out with her is Lord in my shadow. Now because I've been here longer in my in the shadow of everybody. I'm ever been friends with. That's how youtube channel longer. I just don't understand. It's pure silliness. Okay Oh this is a this part get ready Mitch. Compliment that you never. It's like I've seen your videos without her. And you're such a different person. More lively more fun more of your own person and less of a mini me of someone else. Oh is that because that's your channel. I'm sorry because we're different people. Well there's also just like also I couldn't imagine to more people the idea that I'm a mini me of you like we literally couldn't we are opposite? Except we're both loud as fuck oh and noxious into comments like that all agree with like okay when you help me off my videos. That kind of became a thing because I was just in this like super depressive state and then it just became fun for us. We'll let it made us do shit that we wouldn't normally do all do. Sometimes it's hard to hang out with your friends to note that Irene. Cut Me off and interjected in that conversation how come. That's the rest of the body. No like sometimes. It's hard to make time to just hang out so when there's a thing to do it's a lot. It's a London lab fun to do it together and like and it was not only a way to get shit done to experience new stuff but we also just got to hang out. Yeah and like it was nice and you're such a hard time that helped me like in one of the lower points of my life. I would say a bit lower but like when my apartment was so fucking dirty because I couldn't bring myself to clean it because when my content was getting worse and worse because I couldn't bring myself to produce it and then it was just like I had a best friend who is I was like well. Let's do this like you told me. I like jokingly said the use the carpet. No you said you said what. I cleaned my carpet for video lol and I said fuck leader carpets for video. My mom loves the RUG DOCTOR. Bro and we did it and the new road Dr Protein. And then we and then it came back power-wash depression away the other day is there more to that. Oh Yeah Oh oh one story I told you must've taken her like four minutes to rate. Okay Gone Jesus but but many me today. Let's say I appreciate the concern but you don't know her. Yeah you don't fucking know what I'm doing. Bud like how? I'm sorry like I get. This person's intention is pure right. That's the thing is like this. This is somebody back handedly trying to say to me. I think you're great. You should do your own thing. You don't need to be around. Gabby because of Xyz no but it's like Basically just reducing it like we said this on the last episode. It's reducing you to this like they think that either slavery injured and yeah that I'm being taken advantage over being a like spoken down to whatever they they're saying but You may not okay More of your own person less of a mini me of someone else. You may not see that but everyone else does. Who's everyone else her next fucking panel on Instagram? Soy and at best you're doing wrong by yourself and at worst you're doing wrong by Gaby's young fans who are growing up thinking that quote unquote friendship goals equals ignoring someone's worst actions and instead following them around and being their ego pump while getting nothing but ignored and jokes pick picking on them in return and door you here she goes and I'm sorry I don't know if it to what Pronoun they go by. You WanNA prove you're not a yes man question mark actually fucking be a person and not just accomplish generating machine see how long you last. Gavin's life and don't tell me I didn't tell you so then I'm in little rock this this rant brought to you by the inability to deal with this bullshit anymore. I'd like to have it and also shoe dealing with US deep. Bullshit YOU BITCH GO WATCH. Close your phone. Here's another computer off close youtube. Don't listen to podcasts.

"Just trying to fuck and tear you down? It's just very upsetting and hard to see and I say this not to hype me up but to defend you. Yeah this what I'm about to say is like Irene's not my friend because she's trying to use me. I very strongly pushed Irene Channel. You know what I mean like. It's something you've wanted to do for years. We talked about it and like you weren't really doing it so like it's not like you had this channel that was driving. Iran. Why the fuck aren't you doing this? Well no I remember vividly. You sent me voice. No and I was in an Alfred Coffee in Studio City on Melrose and you were just like hey I was just thinking you should probably start that channel like the only things holding you back or X Y and Z. And you can do those things so like you should do that and I was just like fuck. I shouldn't be doing that until like you've not only been the biggest inspiration to me but you've also helped like that's another thing. People don't see people don't see the contracts that you helped me sign and look over and you know that's in I don't WanNa like everybody's GonNa think I am enabled me baby. I don't want to blow smoke up your ass open up this week that the time that you spend going over that shit with me talking to me about rates talking to me about what I should charge like how this shit works is very very valuable information in very important especially coming from someone who's experienced at all like that's what friends do they help each other like you. It's it's just it's just like ridiculous to have to explain what a friendship is to people. I don't know I just wanted to. I just wanted to hop in with all that because I have to control the conversations Okay real quick. Let us get into some paper. I would love to toss this paper..

"We're here we in it hi. I'm Gabby Hannah. This is my pet. Irene Walton thought. Hey Guys I can't believe we have to address again but Irene wanted to show me something she hasn't shown me at your show me we. I sent to you what you did what it. What on. Oh that's why I was curious as to why you didn't respond to it but will then don't look because now I'll just read it to you. I don't think I got it read. Oh yes I did. We are setting each other Voice messages back and forth so yeah got lost in the sauce. Okay Okay so last week we address the fact that People are very adamant that this grown ASS WOMAN. Irene is my pet and my sidekick. Here's the thing you are my sidekick. Yeah which like I love yours. I know here's okay. I love instagram. I think it's very fun to talk to people. I think it's Great. I check my DM's every once in a while. Sometimes people tag me in stories of the food that they make that I've made and like it's very fun today. Got A little a little tag story. Did you answer it? No okay because I just well. They listen to this podcast. Yeah they're going to be listening to that. I don't think they I don't think it deserved a response deserves airtime. Yes deserves it deserves. It deserves my voice. Not My thumbs okay. At homemade Byron follow gives a little subscribe. Blake subscribed okay. Grandma give that a you Graham. Blake. You are so at first. Here's the thing I would. I like to mention that everybody. Who like is incredibly sweet and Nice on Instagram? I see that love that and appreciate that very very much. So that's what I thought this was started is more fun to read out loud. Why hey channels and hate comments and he videos get the views because it's more interesting like what's happening is and that's unfortunate but that's what's happening right now so. I thought it was gonna be like you are so incredible da and then I was like Oh love this pretty pink background and I renew our so in denial in the latest podcast episode. It's incredible you are at enabler you are. Espn and you're in close. Friendship with Gabby has such an imbalanced power dynamic that the scale is breaking as we speak. I don't know what you plan on getting out of Gabby or by being associated her which I mean. That's why I'm in this friendship off But at the end of the day your mental health is more important. Thank you so much for touching on my own mental. I you know I'm sorry nothing about. Let's let's let's keep going. Let's keep digging and that. Avi so I'll go back But at the end of the day your mental health is more important And that is obviously being compromised by her shadow. Only speaking unless you're spoken to or when giving her a compliment she never reciprocates. Wait a minute Wendy. When are you only allowed to speak less way when you give me permission literally? I have you on the podcast every week. Here's what he also. I'm so shocked that people are like mad that you're talking about what you want to talk about on your own podcast. We'll address that in a second. Well actually no. Let's go there now because. I think that this is something that could be addressed. I've sat in Youtube videos before. Like you know. Basically our podcast. Whatever and you know this is not to discredit you at all. Because you already know this. This is my podcast. It's your guy I asked you to come. I pay Irene. Weekly you guys know. This is a weekly Gig for her. Yeah this is my podcast. That I was planning to start before I ever knew Irene. I actually had somebody else who is going to be the terminus and then she got a new job that she couldn't do it. I built a studio with my money. I this is not to be an asshole. But like though the PODCAST was picked up. Because of like my. Because it's your podcast. Yeah and like. I'm so grateful that you're here and I and I love being here and I think it's ridiculous that like if I had a podcast and I wanted you to be on it and Co host and hang out or whatever like whatever then I would pick the topics and we would talk about those topics. Yeah and it's not like I'm like not allowed to talk about things like we talk like. What do you WanNa talk about on the POD? This week like yeah. It's what's confusing and kind of annoying though is like Joe Abbey Hannah. Joe Rogan has a set number of people who are. There are a lot of different weeks. Yeah but like it's it's the Joe Rogan experience. You know what I mean like. It's it's his podcast so for everybody like wondering about all that we see a lot of the questions. Like why isn't Irene Blah Blah Blah? The thing is if if Irene can't make it a week if I'm on tour I'm doing the podcast by myself if Irene when Irene gets her cooking. Show on food network Like and she can't commit to this anymore. The podcast goes on is. Gabby is podcast. It's going to happen if Gabby if tomorrow. Gabby does what the more with us because you only do what I WANNA do is run by me. Okay let's go back to this very loaded instagram posts. But I did want to. Yeah no thank you so much for being here for having me on your show every week and not that it's anybody's business but yes. Irene does get paid to be not but not my videos in fact. Let's let's touch on this a little bit at a time. Because she said like I don't know what Irene plans on gaining from your whatever it is. Irene isn't so many my videos because I when I was in a very depressed state to the point where I couldn't even think of picking up a camera. Irene was a friend who was just like. Let's do this. Let's do. This rallied together and got me to do this. And one of the reasons if you noticed and like you know this might come office shitty too but I have no reason for it like it's not like in every single video I'm like and go subscribe to Irene from my experiences in Youtube and trying to make friendships with work and stuff like that You it's important in my mind to keep a separation of this person is my friend because they want to be my friend. They are here because they want to be here. And this person only cares if it's benefiting their career now being sad like if Irene Post the video with me obviously. I'm going to post about it if I do a video about Irene. The eyebrows video Iq she's linked below like you know what I mean is. Yeah I I think it's very important to understand that like different friendships have different dynamics like you and I are both in the same industry and we have very similar careers and we do similar things and so like. It's very easy and very natural for us to already be hanging out and then be like what if we put mouths on your is always. Your mind has always candy corn on the cop because those are went. You've ever videos is my favorite video of all time. Because we're so underrated truly but yeah like when I hang out with my friend. Juliet like we. If I can sit in her car and listen to music like when I hang out with my other foot lake at friends do different things with each other so like we have that dynamic and I love it so much that we get to create together and it's not work and like if if I don't or you don't feel like filming a video then we just hang out like people maybe have also the idea that we only see each other if I need to film a video. Yeah I know that this is the this is the ultimate like complaint of the Internet. But like they don't the people who ninety percent of people are very sweet and like. Whoa love that friendship like they're cute anyway. I'm going to move on with the rest of my day. But like there's so much that you guys don't see and it just don't know you or myself exactly so like you guys don't know that like we'll just go to target together if we need to get detergent because we're both in the same area and both need to go to target and we don't film. The Post Office because I don't know how to do that and so it's just it's such A. It's it's almost not frustrating because it's so glaringly obvious that they just have no idea that it's like oh well you guys don't know our friendships are like what. What am I gonNA upsets me as I feel like people are using you as a way to hate me? I've got all the time. It's always just like you know when we first started hang out. Nobody cared now. It's like cool to hate me so it's like the only way that I could possibly have a genuine kind loving friend who likes to hang out with me and his good to me is. If I'm somehow manipulating them. And there there are some that completely spineless or they're using me and it's just like any any way and that just like you became that and that's why pissing me off so much now. It's like you know it used to be Oh arena and gabby would acute friendship and now because all of these controversies scandals. Whatever you WANNA call them. It's like the only way gabby could have a friend in this situation and then pay and got. His feelings hurt the other day. Because I texted in the group chat about this because I always thought that people would accuse him of using me because in the beginning I saw some comments like Oh he's cloud chasing like he just wants whatever and it's so obviously he's not because he never post on instagram and he's in the medical field if you if you said the word clout he'd be like exactly but then he was like kind of upset the other day and I said like what's going on and finally had to get it out of him and he said that he saw something where basically it was. I was using him so us for like what exactly. I guess there was something out there that said like oh the timings convenient that all of a sudden she has a man when you know to distract from all the stuff so then he got in two months that you were dating before he was on my story before that too. That's the thing but people don't care about that. People like to selectively choose like oh she posted her. I feed picture during this time. Even though he's been on her story for weeks before that so then he and his head was like I know. That's not you. It's just like a it got in my head. So there's there's no way I could have a loving supportive beautiful sexy caring boyfriend. There's no way I could have a loving compassionate thoughtful present best friend unless I was either using them or manipulating them or they were using me. Not just what it always comes down to. It's gone to the point where I can't tweet somebody in support without the comments under it. Like if I like I tweeted. I won't bring her into it. I tweeted somebody like yes. Go off shown what's up like friend of mine. I've known her for years. She likes it. Whatever and then all the responses are like get the fuck Outta here. Don't dare talk to her. She doesn't like you Quinlan Bales is that is it quite or Quelen. Oh the little boy who was is big lead. It's I can't remember him. I like posted in response. Like let him know he's loved and Blah Blah Blah and everybody is like from the biggest hypocrites of everything it's like. I can't be nice because if I'm no one I it's insane like if I'm being nice it's just for show and it's like or possibly I'm just. Let's play devil's advocate here. Maybe your kind and honest and caring like if everybody's constantly saying look how hard she's always trying to look like a good person possible that maybe I'm not that pad navy not perfect and it's it's not that bad so hard to see that shit coming towards you and like I mean you and I obviously both see the comments all the time where it's just like. She's my best friend Dude. Like why.

"I'm good but I'm not that good I'm saying wanted to mention something and I just forgot what it was because I'm so excited to be here but let's move on all right here's Irene checking in good night Irene I was one of the say that you're on WBZ hello in regard to Hilary being running through vice president I think it's wonderful there's an old saying hell hath no fury like a woman scorned person who would be driven nuts is trump I was doing a great sermon that back in the seventies we tested here in Ohio but there are a lot of women out there who remember the women's movement and I'm sure it's the group is kind of like a sleeping tiger is excited when I heard this tonight is Hillary though or what if you were another woman would have would it matter were tall C. or any closure would be fine if trump was afraid of her but I don't think he's dated anyone but he detests here's the thing that I have to say listen can I just say this one thing I'll let you I mean I just wanna say this and if if your whole thing is women's rights and equal pay and all the rest of it Hillary is not your candidate she makes a good let me finish and then I'll let you say whatever it is you want to say when she was a U. S. senator the women in her office got paid twenty five percent less than the men in her office and the Clinton foundation you know how much the discrepancy was between the male and female execs eighty one thousand dollars that's how much less the female executives made in the mail executives so when it comes to actually walking the walk on women's rights and equal pay she doesn't do it where as somebody like Tulsi Gabbard or or are miss closure senator closure actually do have paid paid equalization in their offices so it's not it's she's not the person that you think she is I love to lead Irene respond to that and other things go ahead Irene well I think I've been on this where of these situations for a long long time and Hillary in her general overall philosophy is certainly an equal rights person promotes women say does he know that starting point my main point is not Hillary as a vice presidential candidate yeah nice skews me in isolation if what how mad it would make that's what I'm excited about okay well that's what you want your nose off to spite your face because you are saying to you there are two female candidates who actually will do what it is you want them to do what you're not interested in them because you're more interested in putting your finger in the president's side and you are in the well being of women that's what yeah basically just sad I don't think I'm very scared that all his devious tactics will defeat anyone else that's what I will need to feed her so why do you think she could win again defeat her he's the president yes he did he's the president she is electoral college stuff is a lot of you know it's just not fair but I rain come on well I'm not going to argue with you too because that's not what I call it I just called to tell you how delighted I we're glad you're happy thank you so much take care well I took about a woman scorned I sit across from one here no I think I think Hillary is is that the a car if figure that would be derisive there would be many who would lover but that many who are hater and she's a love hate like trump I mean you know well I think you made there the best point of the evening I don't care what did when you said that it's going to make the progress of the Bernie followers the hell the warned followers stay home and I think that that's a gift to Donald Trump now if you like them from thing you might devote we wish for Hillary Clinton to be on the ticket if you don't like president trump you know then maybe what you would rather have as its C. Tulsi Gabbard or any clover shar I think it'll be more fun I think it's safe to say that any Democrat who's nominated anyone there will be a mixed ticket male female I think it I don't I don't think I think it probably needs to be I don't think it is anyway you will not only help you have yeah that's going to happen because another women represent more we got one one only one minority laughter that's Tulsi Gabbard the better yeah ocasiones all also white people yeah yeah okay white people yes let's go to Sam next Sam you're on WBZ's night side ring central.
Jamie Loeb on not letting results define her
"Hey everyone listening the tennis dot Com podcast with American pro. Love Jamie Lobe. She's telling us about the ups and downs of her career on the pro tour. Keep listening you mentioned a team now. We know that here in midland joined by Ed Germain Jenkins. He has worked the past with Naomi Osaka so kind of a semi famous name. What's that experience been like? Yeah you know. I was super excited when I heard that he is going to be kind of charged me during preseason and this year. USDA and You know really grateful to have him and his experience. I really like working working with him. And I you know we agree on Pretty much everything and just seeing his You know point of view on certain things and even asking him questions about you know oh players at the top level what are they doing differently But yeah like you know between owning than he was hitting partner so he's had quite the resume and it's pretty the Cool to be around him. Is there anything. That's kind of stuck out that. He said that he has probably they're used or you know the top players did that. You were like that resonated did with you because you know sometimes coaches can say something and sometimes it doesn't stick but it just depends on how someone says it. I think more so when we're talking about things thinks he's looking at big picture and for me He's you know he's like top hundred fifty like when we're working on things after matches like look if you want to get to this level like doc. This isn't gonNA fly or like you need to get better at this so I think it's good putting things in perspective because it's so easy to focus on the now instead of you know and maybe like three six like one year Threes there six months down the road or a year down the road and I think he always like just brings back so for me until I kind of get Outta my head and stop thinking about now but thinking about okay. What's GonNa be what's going to make me better for the next six months to a year from now it's challenging though because as you've been ranked as high as as the one thirties right? You've been up there she you know but then rankings change and every year is different. He's a bad your last year. How have you managed to cope with expectations? Sion's probably your own because you only fears in. You're still very young but you can kind of get sick of it right. Yeah I feel like a veteran at this point. Irene in is rolling her eyes at me. 'cause I've been playing also since junior is but fulltime. I think it's about five years now. Something like that How injury last year and then confidence one away and it just took a while and then from that wasn't enjoying being on core and then I was just trying to force things and then all of a sudden when I least expected I go and win a tournament when I really didn't think I was going to or really didn't want to be there and then things just change? It just takes one match one tournament for everything to change but at the same time you know these common things not enjoying playing and being out there that kind of creeps in when you're not doing well and you kind of have to take the time to realize like look. Do I need a break or can I push through. And that's kind of the battle. I had last last years well last year you were also I mean. We also have to mention the fact that you made finals here. Two years ago two years ago. Yes so last year. You were defending finals points and unfortunately lost to Mattie second round had a tough drugs we played each other the year before so I mean just that many points and you know losing early in that match in that tournament when you're defending finals. I mean that can also change your year lot and that was was that probably the the biggest amount of points accrue that you were defending ever I believe so. Yeah those definitely I think the most I've had to defend so. Yeah that was. It's tough and then two weeks later. I sprained my ankle. So yeah and that was. That was a struggle learned a lot throughout that time. Time but Ended up playing a couple tournaments when I definitely should not have and then ended up having to take two months off so everything was kind of pushed back. In that time frame I did have more points coming off and then by the time I came back I just I was not confident at all. So there's a slight turning point then in October when you one in Dallas Tonight your your eighth idea which is what were you thinking before. I mean if we didn't want to be there you don't WanNa play and then you end up winning. It doesn't really. I don't quite understand. Yeah it's crazy how things happen I go up a set and four one and One of the US coaches Jordan. Belga was there with me After I got four one turn to him and I'm like I don't WanNa be here anymore and I think his face was like And then of course so I lost next two games but then I ended up. I think winning four and three and from that match or Mike Okay and then I honestly started playing better With each match I think just mentally. I wasn't in a good place going into it and part of me was thinking I might call it a year after that tournament. I actually spoke to Irena a little bit Prior prior to that. I'm like what shed Douche stop now but maybe I can do well. Maybe I can get points. It's just that constant vicious cycle of points money any but then you kinda lose yourself and kind of like self love and self care. Yeah funny should mention that I remember last year I made up behind the racket. Post host and I remember getting a message from you. And it was one of those moments where vicious like girl I've been there we I've been through it. You know let's have a phone phone call and not taking credit for your win but you know we did speak before that credit for that. I don't know it was all you but You Know I. I don't feel like I asked this question enough but I I'm curious. What is it that drives you to keep going? I think for me. I'm stubborn than sons. Were like I I just. I don't know I want to or maybe not stubborn aware but like I just want to start like if I start something like I i WanNa finish it and I WANNA say like look I gave it my all and I don't think I was like ready to stop. Maybe I should have taken a actual break or a as long enough break. I don't really think I took any break but I think I'm just so motivated to do well and prove to myself that like look I can and do this and I think I just love the competition and I'm just really determined with everything I do but I just know myself and I know I wouldn't be satisfied if if I were to stop because at the end of the day like I do love competing and giving myself a chance and I don't WanNa look back and say I didn't do that or fulfill that no stone left unturned right. Yeah right no regrets no regrets. Do you ever feel like maybe the motivation might be. Or how do you stay motivated to be like okay. Maybe the next tournaments my right one the next thing is going to turn around or do you ever just think like. Why am I doing this combination of all of that? Sometimes I'm like. I don't know what's going to happen this week week. Someone like all right. I got this but then I lose first round and some weeks like Dallas. I'm like I don't want to be here and win the tournament. So honestly it's a coin flip live like your mind is You know it's crazy what your mind can do but sometimes you know thinking that way it kind of takes pressure off of you and you just go in with no expectations. I think I've learned to try not to define myself as a person With my results. It's really hard to and you know I'm a perfectionist. I WanNa do well and everything and I wanNA win and succeed. But I've done a better job of just separating myself and then the tennis player and I think that's a big thing by yeah week after week. I feel like the mentality just changes depending where you are to you like. There's some places you know may not want to go to so then you're like Like am I really motivate and other places I guess Midland. I'm highly motivated here because I really enjoy by the people in the crowd so mike always up for. But even when you're down you still have to find a way to kind of persevered through that and do you feel ever pressure. Sure from like maybe your support system family or your sister or USDA to keep going even though maybe sometimes you want to break. I sure I think I tend to care too much with other people. Say and think. And that's kind of a downfall going to please everybody and then I end up not pleasing myself and doing something for myself ourself. So I've battled with myself with that I don't think it's necessarily on anyone. It's just how I feel and you know maybe sometimes my family you know they're always watching me or following and sometimes it's a lot and you know it is pressure but I've grown up doing that and living through that hat so I kind of expected by now but I just need to do a better job of just being like it doesn't matter what anyone else things just matters how I feel if I'm happy if I feel like I'm doing the right thing. Then that's all that matters happy. I love hearing that. I don't hear that enough from tennis players. I mean it's it's so result base driven. You know you get so so many e- even last night you know after you win your match or whatever the first question is you know how you feel second question did you play. How'd you play? And then the third question is typically. Well you play this person next like you know it's never like you go ahead and enjoy this win. Take this moment and I remember last night. You know you asked me you were like hey. Do you want to know who you play next like. Nah I just WanNa and I just want to enjoy this one a little bit maybe just process acid and yeah I can totally relate to what you're saying about you know your whole life. You're just you're just a tennis player. Yeah everyone when you go to family functions. How's through tennis? Yes this yeah lately. That's just annoyed me more because I I have even snapped. Sorry mom but like I've snap at her. Mike Mom Likes. Stop asking me. How practices like just ask me how I am? She's like I I'm like yeah but then you always follow it up with you know house practice houses like does it really matter her and sometimes I'm like all if I wanNA talk to you about it. I'll talk to you about it but you know. I think all of us like we're more than tennis player and it's tough because family family. Family Friends You know people watching us on TV. They think of us as tennis player. That's why you know behind the racket We both have done it. Noah's it's a really good friend of mine. I think it's a great platform to just showcase like you know the struggles that we do go through and just show lobe of our personality As well since a lot of people don't get to see that

"Experience with irene with our irene was that there was an amazing amount of plant response. I mean we had so much warning that we were able to in most parts of the region that were affected had had a chance to to prepare and of course there were some that still got very terribly ably hit not always the case with the intense weather systems are quake since anomalies and other things we don't have a chance to prepare and it's also true in our in our inner life that things happen to us we have accidents or problems with our health or financial actual difficulties or loved ones things that happen and there's not really a chance to prepare ourselves and instead of that readiness which really makes a difference in our life quality of presence and readiness that really can handle we flip into reactivity and i'd like to share one now my best examples on this. This is a man who's responding to a request from an insurance company for more information. He says in response to your question for additional information blocks three of the accident report form. I put in poor planning the cost of my accident. You said in your letter. I should explain and more fully i trust the following details will be sufficient. I'm a bricklayer by trade on the day of the accident. I was working alone on the roof of a new six six-story building. When i completed my work i discovered that i had five hundred pounds of bricks left rather than carrying them down by hand. I decided to lower them in a barrel attached to the side of the building securing the rope at ground level it went up to the roof swung the barrel out and loaded the brick onto it then i went back to the ground and untied the rope holding it tightly to ensure a slow descent of the five hundred pounds of wrecks. You'll note in block number. Eleven of the accident report form that i weigh one hundred and thirty five pounds due to my surprise jerked off the ground so suddenly i lost my presence of minor forgot to let go of the rope needless to say proceeded at a rapid rate up the side of the building in the vicinity of the third floor. I met the barrel coming down. This explains the fractured skull slowing slightly. I continued my assent stopping. The fingers of my right hand were to knuckles deep in the poli- fortunately by this time i might regain my presence of mine was able to hold tightly to the rope in spite of my pain at the approximately same time however the barrel bricks at the ground and in the bottom fell out of the barrel devoid of the weight of the bricks abell now wait approximately fifty pounds. I refer you again to my weight and block number eleven. You might imagine i began a rapid descend down. The side of the building in the vicinity of the third floor again met the barrel coming up talk this accounts for the fractured ankle encounter with the barrel slow me enough to lessen my injuries. When i fell onto the bricks unfortunately only my toes or cracked. I'm sorry to report however does lay there on the bricks in pain and unable to stand up and watching the empty barrels six stories above me. I lost my presence of mine and let go of the rope. This is entitled on knowing when into let go.
