To one hundred seventy five the next year the watertown times described the seismic shift in its editorial column. It is regrettable that it took a triple slaying to bring a solution to the numerous burglaries that had puzzled the authorities for months. The victims and the murder mystery had long been under surveillance by the police and county authorities but they worked cleverly and shrewdly in carrying being out there criminal activities one beneficial result of the Egan murders is the abrupt end to the numerous burglaries. which have been a thorn in the side of the authorities for months? The Egan's had become expert in carrying out their program successfully until they came up against against the wrong person or persons suspected by the authorities of being identified with small time rackets Jefferson County. Investigators were convinced that these wrong persons were three of the Egan's criminal associates Joseph Leone and Willard and Bertha Belcher but despite rampant rumors that they were responsible. Solid evidence against the trio was relatively slim based on the trio's histories. The New York State Police acquired a warrant to bug the Belcher home hoping to overhear a damning confession Russian.

"Full. So here's that's conclude subway. No. But that's a good question. So you're going to do the trailer. Do you just start cutting the trailer or do you watch every movie before you cut the trailer? Oh, yeah. You have to move. Okay. You what shit essentially free times the first time just for my I wouldn't say enjoyment. But yeah enjoyment. I know keep an eye out facilites elements that don't go buck on again. I just solo the dialects, and I will poo the best dialects in my opinion. And then I'll watch it for third time and who the best and I'll actually meet the dialoque. Wow. I know pool the best shots. Great it would've issues. And then I go fruit my sequence of issues and break that down into categories. So like if it was an action film put like punch-up cool gunfire character shots. But what if the movie's not finished, and you're cutting from the dailies or something what do you do? Then I have not had experience. I will need a new technique. All right last question, and I'm kinda going to jump a little bit here. But before you do that, then because you said that was the second saddest movie, you've you've done. So when you cut a trailer for very sad movie. We were talking about this for a couple of weeks. Now, you have to sell hope into that trailer even. Thing. Right. I mean to me that was that was that was the thing. Like, if I see a sad movie, we saw tomorrow man, we did the Tamar manner trailer last week, and we're like, we don't know how these and we did joker. And we did extremely vile or whatever that movie was. Yeah. So it's like those are all sad. They all have sad endings. Or would we don't know what tomorrow, man? But but you have to you have to leave like this kernel of hope to the trailer audience that even if it's a lie, you have to leave it with them because you're a marketing piece, I yeah, for sure you have to kind of sensually, you know, traders go take you on a journey on. It doesn't really matter. What genre is will take you on like a low and a high and whatnot. And yeah, I emotional sad film. You always wanna light leave on a high with a bit of hope lifting.

And you draft your whoever you think is going to die throughout the series and all this stuff. So okay. Yeah. The rules. My favorite thing was the rules about death. Yeah. If a character mentions that another character is died. It is not a confirmed death until that said character doesn't show up or is shown as a dead body on spring. But what's even better is ten has it on his? The screen ready to read. No, I don't I do know I paraphrased it. Oh, but I just thought it was hilarious. How how did how a lawyer wrote that, you know, right? Yeah. I know man. It's like fair tastic. It's fantastic. But so you're a game of thrones fan than obvious slow. Yeah. Absolutely.

"Zero D A AL. So they say a gum infection could be linked to Alzheimer's. You guys got a brush your teeth and floss, although the floss remember last week. They said the waxed floss may have chemicals on it. Well, let's go back to the gum infection. Here being reported by FOX forty-three gum infection was found to be a potential risk factor for Alzheimer's disease. In a study published in the journal of science advances and the bacteria poor five Rome. Monus Jinja Vallas poor fiber Monus. Maybe I'll meet my next kid that poor fire Ramona's Jinja Vallis known as PG led to the gum infection, chronic period. Period Titus, so periodically this is gonna gum insulation. And a chronic inflammation of the gums period Donald disease because he'd lose your teeth the same bacteria. They'll get this was found in fifty one out of fifty three brain autopsy in Alzheimer's disease patients now, this is according to new research by Dr Steven Dominy, Casey lich, founders of the pharmaceutical firm cortex. See pharmaceutical companies they're involved as some research, the pharmaceutical company is focusing on developing their politics to alter the course of Alzheimer's disease. Now following on from their findings the team also tested blocking the bacteria in mice by injecting small molecules targeting PG to an abbot the bacteria, guess what? They found less neurodegeneration of the brain. So this showed a potential new way to tackle Alzheimer's disease. So Dr Lynch said that her team her teams publication sheds light on an unexpected driver of Alzheimer's pathology, the bacterium commonly associated with chronic gum disease and could be promising. Now, we've had these links between period Donald disease, and Alzheimer's and heart disease, and you know, this new research just kind of reinforces that there is really something to our mouths and oral infections, and what happens to our our longevity. Now, James Pickett had research at the UK Alzheimer's society says in research, we're we've supported to uncover the key risk factors of Alzheimer's disease. Gum disease has not emerged as a major cause of concern. He's not volved in the research. But he says the laboratory where does suggest that this infecting could cause damage to cells of the brain. But there isn't yet clear evidence that could cause damage resulting Alzheimer's. So the problem we have is Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia. And we still don't know why some people get it. We think we can figure out the patient type, but Alzheimer's isn't necessarily multi infarct dementia. So having lack of blood flow or cholesterol, sugar issues or blood pressure issues. Those may cause less blood flow to hit parts of the brain. But with Alzheimer's, it's a protein deposition. So you could be having other, you know, Cold War visiting that could put you at risk for that. But there are some people that we just don't know why they got Alzheimer's. And we don't know how to cure it. They say five million Americans back two thousand fourteen were clocked in as having Alzheimer's disease. And UK they have one hundred fifty thousand people with it. So we obviously need more research. And so the study found that this bacteria makes these toxic enzymes, call Guinea pigs. And these Guinea pigs were found in the brains of Alzheimer's disease patients, and it kinda correlated with levels of the towel the towel proteins tau protein. You've got amyloid beta, and they found that mice infected with PG when they gave it to them orally rights mimic the mouth also at an increase in amyloid beta. So the study notes that the bacteria also exist in low levels in twenty five percent of healthy people that don't have oral disease. So some of you guys are listening to this going to die just give us the nitty gritty, do we brush her teeth more? If we brush your teeth more does that help us? I don't know. And I tell you why on one end you do need to brush your teeth at least twice a day after meals you should flaws get food out of there. Don't let bacteria sit there were grow. But on the other end. We may need our mouth bacteria or a certain amount. I mean, look at all these studies on gut microbiome and how the gut bacteria help us live longer help. You know, connect with the brain talk to the brain may help us with our metabolism. And I'd like to see a study of people who mouthwash all the time or really really diligent with their teeth. Do they seem to be more heavy or more skinny do? They seem to get diabetes or not get diabetes. I don't know. How many studies are out there with real avid mouth cleaners? I'm not very big on mouth cleaning. I brush my teeth when I have to chew some gum. If I have bad breath, maybe after a tuna fish sandwich, and that's about it. But when you sleep at night, you know, you know, how you have to swallow your saliva. People wonder what's the evolutionary advantage because you know, your body everything your body does there's a reason for it. There's a reason why you poop. There's a reason why your ear has wax right to protect the the dryness of the canal is open to the air. There's a reason why your nose has Boogers and hair to prevent disease from coming in there. Your nose makes mucus and Boogers it could stick on the hairless bacteria can then get into your respiratory tree. But it's still allows air to get in. So it's like a filter vaginal discharge. There's you know, again, it helps keep bacteria from going in and infecting the baby. So there's always a reason for everything. So why do we consistently make saliva? And then swallow it in our sleep or it goes down our lungs and makes us cough, or whatever. Well, maybe it's because we have bacteria on her mouth. And the saliva is one either supposed to clean our mouth or bring that down into our gut. Or just to keep your mouth moist. I don't know. There's a whole variety of theories. So we brush their teeth before we go to bed, which I think we should do. But we still wake up, you know. Feeling a film on our teeth and these bacteria work pretty quickly. They also make acid bacteria grow and multiply they make acids, so you know, yet bacteria on your teeth. They love sugar, which is why we avoid sugar because they could rock the teeth, and we know sugar is bad. But maybe there's a certain amount of bacteria in the mouth that is good. So you need to brush your teeth, but you don't wanna be overly cleaning. So the truth of the matter is is we need to figure this stuff out. And it's taking forever. And again, we have a pharmaceutical company here doing some research. Most people don't believe the study like a pharmaceutical company, they're just trying to make money. Well, they're not gonna make a product where the study's don't say. You know, you say it doesn't work. You know, the the one thing about these pharmaceutical companies is if the study shows, it's a dud, for example, injectable HD L, I think they've tried to pill. I think there was a study a pharmaceutical company was making good cholesterol that you've gotta check into the human. And I don't think the study had good results. I don't think it it showed that worked or lasted long or whatever. And so the pharmaceutical company than stop the research, and then they stopped the production and the development of the drug. If you don't have data to prove it. And you aren't gonna have people claim that works. It's too risky to spend the millions upon millions of dollars to produce the drug now cans, some pharmaceutical companies some of the results go you see it does work. Yeah. But I, you know. They could maybe highlight certain things, but if they have a product that is no better than placebo. It's really not what their.
