He ends up stepping down. They want to name former jeopardy champion, Ken Jennings, the new host, but they found a few problem tweets from a few years ago and said they really weren't comfortable with him taking over the show because people weren't excited about that. Yes, I guess it's kind of cancel culture coming in. But let's be honest, like the old saying, what you say can be used against you in a court of law, kind of works on the Internet, too. What you type will be held against you forever if somebody screenshotted it. I remember when MySpace first came around going back to what 2004, 2005, we used to track into potential employees and look to see who they were and what they were and to be honest with you. Well, here we are now with social media being around for over 15 years and well, what you are typing 15 years ago no matter how old you are, can't come back to haunt you. I guess it's no fun to be vanilla, but hey, if you don't say anything that people upset, you probably don't have to worry about it.

Being Unruffled Is All About Knowing Where Your Child's Behavior Comes From

"I would not be doing a podcast stuff your feelings hide your emotions if you do. Listen here than you know. That i'm all about the opposite. I'm all about encouraging normalization of emotions all emotions having a curious attitude about them encouraging our child to express all there's no judgment on emotions and yes. We do need to do that for ourselves. As well as models but when i speak about being unruffled what unruffled really is is an understanding of our child and child development and behavior. What causes children to do these kinds of things that this parent shares about screaming in her mother's face throwing books saying she doesn't want to be hugged or kissed those the only actual examples that she gave. But i can picture a lot of things that children this age do. So why do children do this. What's going on with them when we understand that and can connect with it. We're still not going to be perfect. Yes we are going to get triggered or have an emotional reaction to certain things but not as much and the more we practice. What we're seeing here. Which is in all of these cases. Maybe not quite the affection one. But i'll get to that but in these cases of behavior that yes could make us angry or annoyed. The reason our child is doing that. Is impulse impulse. That comes from dysregulation emotional centers. They've gone into fight flight or freeze. They are in. What mondale hooked calls the red zone. They're not using their brains and their reason to do what's right. What they know in the frontal part of their brain is right. That part is getting hijacked by their emotions and tina pain. Bryson dan siegel talk about children flipping their lid. Well that sounds very extreme like something. We would definitely notice right if my child was just going off completely. Sometimes that does happen. We noticed that but through all these other subtler forms of it things like. Here's one that maybe we can relate to as adults. Maybe i've i'm on a diet and cutting sugar out but you my friend see me. There's a candy bar there. And i grab it. Tear the repre start taking bites. Am i super upset their m. i. Flipping my lid not really. But i've done something impulsive. That i don't want to do and so my friend telling me jennings shouldn't do that. Wouldn't be a helpful thing to say because i know i'm not supposed to do it and i did it anyway. An impulse may be do

Vox recently wrote about this phenomenon. Rebecca do you want to tell us about it. I would love to tell you about it. Okay so rebecca. It seems like tech talk is selling an incredible amount of stuff at an incredible rate. What are some of the things that people are buying because they see them on tech talk. People are buying so many things because they see them on talk. I think we see a lot of beauty products going viral. That eventually selling out at local drugstore is there are candies. there are snacks. there's toys it's really anything that mostly young people want but at the same time there's there's also like cleaning products that go viral and then are then hard to find so why is talk so good at making things go viral. There's a few reasons for that. So one is like ticked off his good at making pretty much anything go viral. Whether that's a person or a song we've seen that a lot over the past two years and it does the same thing for products essentially and the rain reason is because of its algorithm and how that works and so if you are a person who wants to just become very famous very fast the best place for you to go take talk because what it does is even if you don't have any followers theoretically if enough people like your video as the algorithm shows it to more and more people and if they like it and if they engage with it then that will like snowball into a bigger and bigger audience

I think it should be choice I'm vaccinated. My daughter is not, And I think it should be her choice whether she would like to be vaccinated or not. They are against the governor's vaccine mandate for all healthcare workers. The large crowd gathered at an intersection drawn there by a conservative Christian group on Facebook, the same group that promoted stop the steal protests in Olympia back in January, which coincided with the insurrection at the US Capitol 2.5 hours north in Bellingham, another group protested outside of a hospital over the same vaccine mandate issue. Cairo radios Nicole Jennings reports from Peace Health Saint Joseph Medical Center. The States mandate health workers have until mid October to get the vaccine or say goodbye to their jobs. Bellingham protester Frank says the mandate violates those workers rights and that it's an especially bad idea during a health workers shortage. We need doctors and nurses. We don't eat less of them, especially to be fired. You're taking something they choose not to do that's truly insane.

What Is OlympicTok?

"The twenty twenty olympics. Haven't exactly been easy to watch. Yes they are taking place in twenty twenty one during a once in a century pandemic. But what i mean is that it's actually difficult to watch the events and festivities on tv despite. Nbc holding the exclusive broadcasting rights. Finding out where to watch the olympics is confusing as heck as things are spread out over several cable and streaming channels and then without fans there to post videos and photos of the games. It kind of feels like we're missing out but there is one really good place to find. Those highlight videos not to mention excited reactions from coaches fans and the athletes themselves and that place is having already did that. They get here to tell us about. Olympic talk is boxes rebecca jennings. Hey rebecca. tell me about talk in the olympics. What's happening on the app right now. So this is the first olympics. Where tech talk has existed. And i think what we're seeing the same thing that we see from like celebrities who get on social media and then we sort of start to put a face to the name and everything and we feel like we know them. The same thing is happening for athletes on talk and so they are making videos of behind the scenes at the olympic village. Here he wrote me other testing out those beds which is really funny. She's doing yoga. Oh they're making like thirst videos for their fellow athletes It's just like a lot of fun kind of you. See them less as athletes and more as people who are just like their regular young people and it's just like a really joyous thing to behold so let's talk about numbers. How big are the olympics on talk so the olympics are huge on tech. Talk like when. I opened the app. When i scroll a few times. It's like every maybe fifth or sixth video as olympics related. And that's from whether it's the athletes themselves or it's you know nbc's sports coverage where they just do you know cool highlight moments or whatever or it's just fans watching their favorite sport so there's a lot on it Some athletes have you know built followings of hundreds of thousands already in just like the span of a couple of weeks even athletes who had just gone on just prior to the olympics. And then you see. Olympic talk is one of the biggest hashtags. There's like hundreds of millions of us there and with all the olympics hashtag combined. It's like at least a billion views you know. Maybe probably more.

How did she even get here. I'm in most of us. Took a pretty arduous route. Either people came across land from pakistan or got on some of the early flights that flew into an abandoned airstrip north of the capital. How is she surviving here. Where all of us have trucked in a about little cash to try and get by. She's come here without a place to stay without a driver or a security detailer and she's already couch surfing at this point right. Yeah and she didn't act like the rest of us.

And finally i captured him for the grade. He brought a hand that he played with nine five suited just a few days ago. It was in a home game that i played into jonathan. My i live guests in the grid for over a year. We aren't a beautiful beach and poker retreat weekend and so john that i have to thank you for taking time out from champagne and sicilians for this little chat. It's actually really really funny.

Boom of chris moneymaker like many people our age when it was first on. Espn and You know the the world series started growing and we started meeting. These guys. Like phil hellmuth and phil ivey and whatnot. And i became extremely interested in playing. So i got a party. Poker account full tilt poker account and luckily living in new york city.

Probably eighty percent of it has taken place in underground games mostly in new york city but also other places around the country starting with cash games. You know when my bankroll was really low one to no limit will come up to two five and five five these days playing a lot of five ten pillow so bring us back to those days. What was poker like then. Well there were so many people who played and because of the numbers so many who thought that they were amazing so many people who consider themselves professional regardless of how much they could support themselves with the game regardless of how much they think they knew that perhaps read. A few books played a bunch. Got a few cashews. And i can't lie. I probably was one of those people you know. We were all kind of swept up in the u. Fauria of everyone being able to play their poker rooms opening up all over the place on riverboat casinos and indian reservations in a c- in vegas and you know Foxwoods mohegan sun. So everywhere. I would go for instance. There was a long-term tournament at the foxwoods casino in connecticut. And i would often play. Maybe the first few rounds get a little bored and then eventually miss around and go to the poker games because i was doing a little bit better in the poker game so definitely poker was there was cachet. I mean if you recall a time they had the heads up. Poker tournament on nbc. Cyber poker shout at exactly celebrity poker showdown poker was in the zeitgeist definitely between two thousand three and two thousand eight ish and i would say that was really a part of the hebei of me playing.

"Episode with an email from one of our listeners. This comes to us from Claude G Claude, says hey, guys. I just listened to your latest episode about the possible inspiration for true detective. We did that one a while back. And this in clots has I enjoyed the episode, but was wondering if you'd heard of another theory about the inspiration for the show I was raised in Jennings Louisiana. I live a few minutes away now, but still go there multiple times a week. Jennings claim to fame unfortunately is a multiple murder case titled by the media. The Jennings eight showtime has recently done a five-part series on a mentioned true detective in one of the episodes. My family and I are personally connected to the story. Is One of the victims was a cousin of ours? Anyway I was curious to see if you guys have heard of the connection to the TV series and our case, thanks for your time, Claude. This? This is fascinating now. We did know a little bit about this, but we wanted to explore the case today. It's something that many people have heard of maybe not intimately familiar with and for this sort of episode. We do need to have a disclaimer at the top of the show. It's true in today's episode dives into some pretty disturbing stuff. Stories of true crime murder, drugs and corruption and the episode contains at times quite graphic descriptions of violence and assault, and it might not be suitable for all listeners so to start. What are the Jennings eight in order to answer this question? Please travel with us to Jefferson Davis. Parish Louisiana here are the facts. Jefferson Davis Parish? It's located in southwest Louisiana and and it's a small place. You know a parishes Louisiana's version of a county. It has a little more than thirty thousand residents. The parish seat is a town called Jennings. It's the largest town in the area, but the population is still just a little over ten thousand, according to the two thousand ten census, it's home to some notable individuals. I found one mysterious story here. A guy named Father Eugene John Herber was a Jesuit missionary, and he disappeared in Sri Lanka thousand, nine, hundred ninety during the country's civil war. He has nothing to do with this show today as far as we know. Before the events disclosed in today's episode Jefferson, Davis, which was named after the former president of the confederacy. It was one of those places you probably wouldn't be too familiar with unless you lived in the area, it made the news a couple of times for things like corrupt ticketing by local law enforcement. You know we've all heard that thing. Where if you're a stranger town? You're driving by and you've got plates from outside of the area. Goal Red Flag target on your back. Yeah, and that's happened. you. You've through some of those areas in your travels, baby to Athens or Augusta sure. I would imagine there'd be an argument to to make that. It's some form of profiling, but it's just you know the rules kind of it's. It's like something you should expect probably, and it's kind of difficult to prove to a lake many rural areas. You wouldn't see Jennings often in the national news. In fact, you could live your entire life here in the united. States never know this place existed Jefferson Davis isn't particularly large. In fact, it's not particularly wealthy, either and like so many other places in the united. States these days. It had a pretty seedy underbelly. In the absence of prosperity, economic opportunity jobs you. It is a vacuum that is typically filled with drugs and crime and other types of black market trading, which grew into kind of an open secret and Jefferson Davis. Everyone knew what went down on south main. Street but it wasn't necessarily something that was going to get shut down by the cops. You know on the regular right? Absolutely yeah, it was an open secret especially in South Jennings life in the small parish seem set to continue as it always had and even to continue along a bit of a slow economic decline. Until that is residents began finding the bodies. We're going to explore the initial. Murders or the discovery of the bodies even before they were termed murders. On May twentieth two, thousand and five, there's a fisherman retired. Men named Jerry Jackson. WHO DISCOVERS THE FIRST BODY? It's floating in a canal highway. Twenty six on the outskirts of Jennings as body is identified as one Loretta Lynn. cast. Song Chessen Louis. Louis have been seen alive three days earlier, because of the amount of her body decomposed, authorities weren't able to conclusively determine her cause of death, but they suspected as fixation, and as you'll recall from our previous episode Smiley face murder theory, drowning as homicide can can be a pretty tough nut to crack. It's very difficult, approved us like it's hard to prove that a couples over because you had out of state plates yet. The Court of public opinion was already in full swing, and there's some pretty nasty victim blaming that happens. especially in the media, because according to the residents in the know, Louis was living, what was often euphemistically described as a quote, high risk lifestyle. She was addicted to crack cocaine. She was another casualty of the drug trade running along that quarter of I ten and she had turned to the sex trade to feed her addiction, and at first this was seen as a tragedy, and it is but less than a few months later, residents. And Law enforcement served to recognize that this discovery wasn't just a singular tragedy. It was something else the beginning of a pattern right group of friends hunting bullfrogs, which is a thing that you do in Jefferson Davis for fun They found the corpse of a thirty year old a mess teen Patterson Ms Dean Patterson a few weeks later. flooding in a different canal on this particular victims. Cause of death was a bit easier to figure out her throat had been cut her body brutalized. Two men a Byron, Chad Jones and Laurence. Nixon are held for a brief amount of time on charges of second degree murder. But. These charges were of course drops and they were released. And so we have to, we have to discoveries in two thousand and five. Years Pass on March eighteenth two thousand seven. Another body is discovered that of twenty one year old. Kristen Gerry Lopez. She is discovered an canal and like the Lewis case medical. Examiner's cannot conclusively nail down a cause of death. And like in the Patterson case to people are briefly detained this time. It's a guy named Frankie Richard. who has described alternately as a retired oil rig worker, a strip club owner and A. Along with his niece, Hannah, Connor These two are leader released just like in the Patterson case due to lack of evidence, yes, right and over the next year and a half four more bodies turned up in and around Jennings. All fitting the same. The same. Unfortunate. Kinda forgotten demographic, poor young with a history of drug addiction rap sheets a mile long. Typically charges involving the sex trade or other criminal activities We have Whitney Dubois. Was Twenty Six. Lakonia Muggy brand twenty-three. Who Liked Patterson had her throat slit as well. Crystal Shea in Wa Zeno twenty, four Brittany Gerry Seventeen. WHO's the cousin of Christian Gerry Lopez? Most of these bodies showed almost no signs of trauma and the medical. Examiners ruled. Fixation is the cause of deaths interesting other than the Magi case with the slit throat, so law has to respond again. Jefferson Davis. Parish has a small population this. Death rate this murder rate is. Insane so in December of two thousand eight, the Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff's department under the leadership of one Sheriff Ricky Edwards announces that they're forming a task force to investigate what they're now. Openly calling murders as force is referred to as multi, agency investigative team or AIT, the the include local officials, state officials and some feds. Their results leave much to be desired in August of two thousand and nine and eighth victim is found Nicole Gillary twenty six years old. The body is discovered off I. Ten in the adjacent Acadia parish. Later that fall..

"Cast it back on wells cast welles hanging out on the show. Today I have Rashad Jennings how are you man. I'm great I'm great bridge. Take off air. We were talking about. Why am giants Fan? Because I grew up Basically in the bay area so I grew up a Raider Fan But I went to journalism school at the University of Mississippi or old mess and I was there during the time of the reign. Reign of ally. Manning who famously one Two Championships with the New York football giants so we have a connection there. Yes I remember. Eli In College. Being very quiet. He would throw parties and we'd go to them and he would sit in the corner and not really talk to anybody. Yeah changed from then to a new played with them Probably not too much probably not too much dismay. He's he's Say his type of humor. He's a great guy awesome. God Love Eli Man. I got a chance to locker beside him but three years in When you lock her besides somebody sometimes you get to know him too much right but now he's awesome? Do Man He he's the type of guy that his humor he could probably go. Oh Be L.. Fill in for the show the office. Yeah and not act that all fits him like the dry humor he's a he's a clown he's a jokester greatly. Let it dude man. Yeah How do you feel not? We don't have to do so much football. Talk but how do you feel about them. benched him S.. Tough so UTAH. I missed them last year. more this year. Well I mean the last year really was a Stinger You know how legally it out when alone but this year I honestly. I thought that they've been system a little bit too early. Just us just my opinion. I get did it against it though. I mean we obviously now see the Daniels the future. Yeah but what it moving forward. I really would like to see this Sunday as he lost art. Yeah I will love for him to walk out the tunnel and in his hometown his his facility as a starter as a giant to get applaud By the fans by the crowd so he can go out how he really wants to win. Lose draw great game terrible game lead. Abi Laws Game He I think he deserves that. So hopefully we'll see him start one more game at home Because this this potentially could the last home game have replay. Yeah as a giant well. Obviously I mean the pedigree that he comes from going to old miss and watching he he. I was there during the height of it all and I think he got us the closest we are ever going.

Because I grew up Basically in the bay area so I grew up a Raider Fan But I went to journalism school at the University of Mississippi or old mess and I was there during the time of the reign. Reign of ally. Manning who famously one Two Championships with the New York football giants so we have a connection there. Yes I remember. Eli In College. Being very quiet. He would throw parties and we'd go to them and he would sit in the corner and not really talk to anybody. Yeah changed from then to a new played with them Probably not too much probably not too much dismay. He's he's Say his type of humor. He's a great guy awesome. God Love Eli Man. I got a chance to locker beside him but three years in When you lock her besides somebody sometimes you get to know him too much right but now he's awesome? Do Man He he's the type of guy that his humor he could probably go. Oh Be L.. Fill in for the show the office. Yeah and not act that all fits him like the dry humor he's a he's a clown he's a jokester greatly. Let it dude man. Yeah How do you feel not? We don't have to do so much football. Talk but how do you feel about them. benched him S.. Tough so UTAH. I missed them last year. more this year. Well I mean the last year really was a Stinger You know how legally it out when alone but this year I honestly. I thought that they've been system a little bit too early. Just us just my opinion. I get did it against it though. I mean we obviously now see the Daniels the future. Yeah but what it moving forward. I really would like to see this Sunday as he lost art. Yeah I will love for him to walk out the tunnel and in his hometown his his facility as a starter as a giant to get applaud By the fans by the crowd so he can go out how he really wants to win. Lose draw great game terrible game lead. Abi Laws Game He I think he deserves that. So hopefully we'll see him start one more game at home Because this this potentially could the last home game have replay. Yeah as a giant well. Obviously I mean the pedigree that he comes from going to old miss and watching he he. I was there during the height of it all and I think he got us the closest we are ever going.

"He was named was Gaylon his spacecraft was sucked into a big crunch listing. I'm not listening. What was your question? You know, if you have library book in your library that you never took back. That's. Good question. So most of our library finds stories again have come through the kids. And there have been many cases where they lost a book. And then what do you do if you go in and pay at the library will be like this is kind of a hassle. So once my daughter lost the book, I immediately went in and paid it. And when I found the book they had to bring out a cardboard box and count out change like an elementary school book sale. They don't keep money to reimburse me, no, they're above their above these kind of well, it's fundamental principles of a library that you don't have to pay librarian has less than forty dollars. But you're hiding behind your kids. Do you Ken Jennings have a library book that you checked out and never took back? I don't believe. So but my beef with the library is on a different occasion. Having remember them counting out the change the next time that I just marked book overdue online instead of going to the death it assessed me you now eighteen dollars or whatever. And I said, okay, fine. I'm going to find the book, and I'm going to bring it in. And this will go away. So I find the book, and I bring it in. And they're like, okay. Let's see your late fee is going to be the maximum and say, oh, no, no. No. No. No, no. I marked it lost. And they were like, yes. But you never went in and paid it. I said, well, of course, I didn't if I paid it. You were going to bring out that box again. I just knew I'd produce the book instead, and she's like, well, no you didn't pay. You still have an outstanding debt you need to pay the maximum wage fee. Librarians have very small little world like to exercise much control. This don't slag off. The librarians if you lose your.
