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.

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.

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.

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.

"john gray" Discussed on The Oprah Winfrey Show: The Podcast
"Those romantic Carlos, these are feeling. This is not just some hypothetical thing. This is polarity of man and woman and today with men and women working side-by-side women doing things men do men doing things women do. How do we find those those hormonal Larry Again, dating and Romance. Even you're married. You have to keep dating. What did you want to? To say well, I wanted to know when you become an enlightened mail when you read minute from ours when you read other books, and you're the guy that women call a two o'clock in the morning. Talk to for two hours and you listen to them you want to hear. And what are they telling you about the guy? They're going out with how bad he treats them how he never listens to them. You don't get a look, but this guy gets all the dates right very common. There's a lot of angry sensitive guys because they're not getting late, look. Right! You know what I'm talking about. It was about twenty years ago. These sensitive guys that are figuring out. What is it that women want? And they go way overboard, and they give to women, and suddenly they're not. They're not getting in relationships, and they're confused, and it's been the call of women in the last twenty years woman seeking sensitive man when she gets them, she rejects him. Why does she heart of what's missing is the. The beautiful desire, the loving nature inside of this man, he wants to move to his female side to certain extent. He neglects aspects of Mass on side. There's a masculine energy, and there's a feminine energy. The mask on the energy is. Is it says sometimes. I need to be alone. It says I need my independence. It says I've got to pull away. Women need that energy from a man that he's not just coming right tour. It's like you're giving too much. When sensitive men give too much. Like what what happened is woman feels like she has to give back to you. So you're over giving you. Don't WanNa over give to women, and it's complicated. You have to give the right amount and the same thing. Women have to learn not over. It's hard, so the secret is what I find most often with sensitive men is when they have conversations. They're very talkative with women, but then they start being very talkative. One rule of thumb is never talk more than the woman. Never, rule of thumb, never show sensitive feelings more than the woman. Now. This is hard because a sensitive man. We'll have more sensitive feelings. Personally. The reason I understand women so much I'm a sensitive man. I am more sensitive at times. My wife and when I went through this transformation about fifteen years ago. I had to realize John you're sensitive caring loving man, but if you WANNA create that polarity, you've got her the woman and you can't be the woman, so what I had to do was go against all my psychological training when my feelings would come up, I had to hold them back. You have to hold them back and start taking care of yourself. Instead of going to the woman, see a woman and other rule of thumb. If you're sensitive guy, never need the woman more than she needs you. It's got to be a balance. She needs to feel that she's getting from you. What she's giving to you, so you have more careful because you're going to man. His tends to be giving and giving and giving. Does that mean they need? Sense that they have to fix us in some way. They need the sense that you're not going overboard. The police them. You're not giving up you who you are to please them see women instinctively do that anyway, they they give up way of who they are and there with a man who's doing the same thing. This is not going anywhere that I want to go. There's sort of a safety rod when. Women say the opposite they set. When say the opposite? They say they want a sensitive guy. They want somebody who's going to go overboard for them. WHO's GonNa? Be there for them. WHO's GonNa? Listen to them and all of the things that he's just described the over. Give I've interviewed again and again. These women they say to me things like Gee I was really turned onto in the beginning, but now I feel like he's got a lot of problems. You know he's so sensitive. I feel like after walk on eggshells around him or I feel obligated to give back to him. I feel like I. Have to give to him so many times may will come on really strong. I'm going to do this for you do this. You do this for you. It'll cause a woman to terrify. She'll go. You don't even know me. How could you love me this much? You're some fantasy world. Hold on, let's go slower with this, so my advice is sensitive is go slower. Be Less needy. Look inside yourself where you feel. You're needing and start looking at getting. Your needs met spending time with other men. There's a lot of energy by just being with the guys. I suggest this is basic therapy for any man in marriage. You need special romantic time with your wife, domestic time with your wife, and he'd have separate time alone and separate time with the guys women what you need to tell your husband. If he's getting moody or irritable, say go spin. Go Go, go spend the evening with your guys. Go Do basketball game. Go to a movie that I don't WanNa. See it's very important to get him away. Because when men pull away, then they feel back in their masculinity. Then they miss you see this is the irony. Men Grow in love when they're away from you. You know the old saying distance makes the heart grow fonder desperate. Of men you relate to it, women madge ten times more for men when he's away. He's the guys and he goes. Oh, I've been missing her. She looks really good. He's got to get away. There needs to be time apart occasionally, very important element relationship more of this conversation in just a moment.

My big message is you don't have to be perfect to make relationship work, and really what what I'm saying to this incident is don't try too hard. Just take time instead of trying to do a lot for your partner. Take time to understand your partner and you know people say to me. Is it hard to live up to this image? Asked? My wife is not hard for me at all I do everything wrong I. Say men do and I say that is because I'm from Mars. Mars I take my time in the cave.

Mars and Venus Starting Over
"Back. You have to be living under a rock not to know his bestselling book manner from Mars Women are from Venus and John was here last month, and we were talking about starting over after a break up on the difference between how men and Women Cope and was so interesting that I ask John to do another show, not just for single people, but for everybody because we have such a high divorce rate that something is wrong with the way we're approaching marriage. Wouldn't you agree I agree completely what's happened is times have changed. We've moved into a whole new society or expectations are changed. We're no longer modeling relationships after our parents, but it's what we see in the movies. It's what we see. See in TV. Our expectations have dramatically changed. This isn't wrong. They've actually gone to higher level but TV and the movies going to a higher level. Is the divorce rate higher because they don't teach us how to get there when I see. People Fall in love in the movies, and let's say I'm married. I'm not feeling that love for my wife. I go I want that that feels real to me. It tingles my body. I go. I want that, but how do I get it and I try to do what they do and it doesn't work. Nobody's taught us. We have to be re educated on how to have relationships see the reason. We don't have education on relationships, because normally you grow. Grow up in your family. You Watch your parents relationship and you learn thousand nine years of training how to have a relationship like your parents. That doesn't hold hold anymore suddenly. If we do the things our parents did. How many of us are parents creating romance every week? For example, my wife and I one of the things we do to create romance. We want romance every every month we take one day we go away from the kids away from work away from family, and it's basically Gourmet Romance I served. My wife cooked the whole meal. I, take her to a restaurant. We go somewhere. She see women can't continue to be sexually responsive and romantic. If they feel, they're always taking care of. Of Kids. They're always taking care of duty. Women have the breasts that life is sucked out of them. They're being pulled. All the time pooled all the time pooled. All the men don't have that. We just go sit in our easy chair and forget their problems. Women can't do that. Women can't forget we have to do. We want romance to thrive to take her out of that circumstance where she's feeling responsible, responsible responsible. Take her way and romance, or and how many men have been taught how to do that? We're not taught how to do that. Our attitude is if you love someone just supposed to work now. The truth is most people aren't even aware of this. Hollywood has rewritten history yeah. Has. Romance been a part of marriage. Nowhere in history has romance. Marriage. We think of Romeo and Juliet. Reason that's romantic. They both died unmarried yet. Right on John that's right. Romance is possible we can keep the passion a lot. You get about three years of automatic hormones when you meet someone three years the harmonious flow. If you don't have romantic skills and communication skills, there will nurture the woman's hormones that will nurture the man's hormones. Then they go into state of latency, and then you see another person and boom. They're off again. Do relate what he's talking about. You on married here. Everyone in front row, yes. My husband is the selective hearing. Husband I've been married for eight years dated for ten years before we got married. We've gone through two of your books now, and we always say to yourself. Okay John Tell us to do in this situation, and we try to think it through, but still ends up I'm talking I'm talking I'm talking. He's thinking about the trees. The flowers something else and allison I'll say at sparks his interest in. He'll say what did you say? What did you say? What did you say? The whole thing again. I selected hearing I need for him to listen to me when I'm talking. We have such a short amount of time together. We have three children small amount of time to talk. Listen have something important to say that is the number one thing now. One thing is reading my books. Watching the videos men learning to listen the other ingredient is the fuel that allows a man to listen. Have you ever seen a guy dating a woman in a restaurant? Not able to listen to her if he's expecting sex that night. You can tell who are the couples who are married the guy who's expecting sex that night. He's glued on her. What. She says he's right there. TUMMY MORE OPRAH TO. Tell me more. There because there's expectation of that connection. Something happens. It breaks down when you have kids. Now we have to do if we don't want that breakdown, the happen is we have to compensate for? And the woman is just important as this as the man men have to learn skills for communicating, but it's not enough just to listen. Because what you're saying is there is. He's read my books. He's trying to listen. There's no juice not feeling that he's right there and the only thing a woman can say I don't feel you understand and that he gets really frustrated. What do you mean? I don't understand? I can tell you what you just said. She doesn't feel connected. What's missing? What's missing? Is that passionate connection that he used to have when you would talk, and suddenly it's. To listen right. Yes he did you listen to what I had to say? Yeah when you were dating when he courting you when you were in the window three years three year window. You know eighteen years ago so. It's been a long time, so I think what you're saying here. What you're saying here is key about the three year window because we have been fed a whole bill of goods, really in believing that the romance is going to last forever, and it's going to be automatic and it doesn't it doesn't. It doesn't envy created again and again you know the first time my wife touched my thigh. Every cell in my body came alive fireworks right? That's what every man eighteen years later. Well want something. It's not going to happen. Have that passionate response? You're familiar. You're in a relationship. You know the person, but what you can do, and this is what the possibility exists. You can create a romantic getaway. You can maybe go shopping a little bit during the day. Why shopping important women love the Shop Women's shopping? Opportunity I start thinking about herself even if she doesn't buy anything. That's what you have to know. Women don't have to buy things they can just look tried on. She's thinking about herself. Then you feed her. Her. She's always feeding everybody else you've. Feeder brings her back to her sense of self. What's happening? Is You're bringing her back? She's connecting with those hormones. was she felt in the beginning where she felt special, she felt taken care of see. That's what all the dating rituals or about dating rituals. Somebody can look at it and say they're sexists. The man supposed to do this. The woman's supposed to do that. If you want passion to last, you've gotta know. There's roles to play like. If. We go on a date. My wife if I'm not opening the car door for she's very clever. She wraps her arm around me and she just walk into the car. She just keeps me raptor as we go to the car door and I guess I'm opening the car door tonight. opened the door, she oh, thank you, okay.

Strong Women and the Power Struggle with Your Mate with Arielle Ford
"Let's talk about the type of partner that were attracted to if we are a powerful person you know I don't know that there's a short answer to that here's what I do know is that whether you just become successful in business or you've been successful for a long time the power that women exude was there anyway and lots and lots of men are attracted to powerful women justice like we're attracted to certain kinds of guys that may be confident or something like that where the problems have arisen that I've seen in my life and those around me is when a couple decides to go into business together especially if it's the woman's business that he's coming into that creates a power struggle so suddenly you went from being let's say a equals in a marriage partnership to she's the boss you know she's the one who is now having to say give Tass to her partner germ which could be demoralizing the guy who's used to running things his way so I usually recommend that you know if your relationships going well don't do that as your both really conscious enough and willing to work through the issues that will arise I'll tell you what happened in my life as it totally took me by surprise I was the first time right at the age of forty three and then I decided to use every prayer processing ritual I've ever done to build my business to manifest a soulmate and did it brilliantly and I- manifested this amazing exceeded all my expectations we got married and then we decided to start a business together now I went into this marriage not knowing that I had zero partnership skills and be the thing that I was really the best at was being the us being the boss with an Alpha masculine male isn't that a good place to be if you WANNA have a good sex life yeah doesn't work so we ended up having to do a ton of work around masculine and Feminine Energy and learning how to work together because we were both very a successful business people with two very different business styles so I'm a get it done kind of person you know something comes on my desk and it's Atta there in thirty seconds right is a slower much more thoughtful wants to review everything three times kind of person which draw me Rainsy You know so we had lots and lots of issues to work out and eventually for lots of different reasons we closed the business in I just said odor ever again you know we just put too much stress and strain are romantic relationship now I know you and your husband very successfully worked together so I'm curious what are the things that you do that make so well well didn't work well at first much like you've described it was that was a language I was even using my business I need your help today can you help me do this for my business and languages of I piece and then you know he is the quarterback I mean he was like a collegiate quarterback he played professional quarterback that's the guy who's in charge that's the guy who leads the team who takes the fall who glorified in the win got to tell you my husband was captain of his College Basketball Team Championship. and then he was pro so I understand yeah and so it wasn't like I was attracted to someone who was necessarily a milk toast kind of person He's definitely a leader very charismatic I think part of our relationship together it was like it was the first time he was dating someone who was like his equal and it was the first time I felt like I was dating someone who is my equal but I was more powerful when it came to business he had no experience area the type of business with started together and I needed his help and just need like I need a warm body I needed his skill set if we were the next level I mean the things that he's great at I'm horrible at in order for that to work we went through some really horrible nearly marriage ending James nearly hit rock bottom and then it was a matter of going to therapy and realizing like oh so there's a way I am in business and then there's a way need to be with my husband and each of us had to recognize each other's strengths and powers and I stay in and I know this may sound controversial but I stay in my feminine role and maybe it's not feminine or masculine but I stay in that role where you're the man you're the person who's taking era of me and maybe he'll listen to this maybe he won't but I'm really thinking about his ego like all the time in how I respond to his feedback is ideal as his suggestions away that I constantly look for ways to acknowledge all the things he's doing which are so different from the things that I'm doing and it wasn't doing that at first at first I would just be like here do this and it was all the things that I knew how to do but we're within his strength or his interests yeah no lead is being in your feminine energy because in a relationship you want polarity you want the male and the female and as the relationship grows and matures that it becomes a dance where you switch on and off and go back and forth but when women are working we need to be in our masculine energy that it's bonding in your masculine energy and gets done energy yeah the make stuff happen energy it's really fine but then at the end of the day we need to transition and step into the role of our Feminine Energy and for me that became a process I actually created a routine that I did for many years where I would come home from work and I would either take an aromatherapy bubble bath and put on freshmen makeup and change my clothes to go out to dinner or I would come home and do some belly dancing would consciously shipped not up or down just ladder early shift into my Feminine Energy and then he had to learn that he needed to honor that energy so he couldn't be talking business to me late at night 'cause I remember saying to him Oh it's eight o'clock at night and we have to be talking about this contract and in a why not it's fun it's like yeah it's fine in the middle of the day when I'm working I just went through a ninety minute process right you just transformed become your girlfriend in your way you know and it was a dance we needed to learn and the thing that I learned the most and I learned this from John Gray who wrote men are from Mars women are from the yes sure as you know men's brains are wired differently from ours you know you and I we could have a conversation where we are the same mm time talking about the friends we have in common what the latest episode of Grey's Anatomy was like where did you get those shoes and you know who he voting for net exchange we could manage all four multiple conversations yeah got guys brains can handle anything but one topic at a time so if you want the ask them a question don't ask them a multilevel question you ask him where is such and such blank and then you shut up and you let them answer so we have to understand that there are real differences between men and women and communicating with men and women but I think the most important thing and I learned from John Gray is that all men need to be told multiple times a day how brilliant they are and just no matter what it is they say you don't want to lie to them but if they say oh I just made us reservations data on my God that's perfect brilliant I've been wanting to go there you know they need to be acknowledged on a regular basis is it fading their ego chess don't we both need that and you know we're talking a little bit about heterosexual couples but this power struggle exists in same-sex marriages and all relationships I would assume yes yes and yes we want to be acknowledged as well but what I've learned is it's not something you necessarily have to ask for Dr John John and who's the world's leading expert right on marriages read many of his books are great L. Hayes brilliant his the secret to a happy marriage is giving your partner five acknowledgments today why is this important because it means that in order to give them five acknowledgments every day you attention to them on the look for what's right instead of looking for what's wrong what would constitute an acknowledgment okay so let's say so you've got a son a nine year old son who has trouble with math in school and you see your husband's sitting at the kitchen table helping with homework later on that night all you have to do is give them a hug and say you know you're the greatest dad I saw you helping little johnny with his homework I'm just so proud to be your wife

"Why boys are struggling and what we can do about it Dr Warren Farrell, and Dr John gray? Welcome to the podcast. Thank you. Thank you so much. Well, I understand that. You're partnering on this book came from a conversation that the two of you have had on many long walks in the forest what what were you discussing on these philosophical hikes? Viewers. Well, they were about four hundred walks over a period of ten years. And so, yeah, John, and you know, is is very well known for helping people understand the the biological differences between men and women and how they they manifest in everyday life, and I'm sort of more focused on the types of things that men and women can do to change to adapt to what I consider more functional life. And so his focus tends to be helping men and women have empathy for each other and compassion for each other and mine tends to be more focused on what's what was functioning in the past, and what will be functional in the future. Least that would be my interview Dacian, John. What would you say? Yeah. So we talk about that. We're both experts in gender differences. But then we focused on boys. What we see so much good. Oh, good awareness on women women's challenges anybody's read, my books know, that I'm very pro women and pro men, and what happens is we hear a lot of the challenges girls have women have and. Great work been done. But it often overlooked is the challenges that boys are going through now and is quite an eye opener to hear the statistics, which is book is filled with statistics warrants an excellent researcher on statistics yet worn cited a laundry list of metrics by which boys and men today are much worse off than girls and women. Can you walk us through a few of the most important ones, the children raise with minimal or no father involvement are likely to do worse in about seventy different areas. Most most of those areas have been it's just amazing like the drug overdose. That is the opioid crisis. And and and the boys dying of such a high percentage rate that has never happened before has led to male life expectancy actually going down as the first time in recorded history that anyone's life expectancy has gone down and to give into generation then I started looking at the suicide rates and saw that. Yeah. The suicide. Side rates have boys and girls when they're nine are equal and very minimal between ten and fourteen the boys. Suicide rates are twice that of girls between fifteen and nineteen four times that of girls and between twenty and twenty five more than five times that of girls, I looked at the mass shooter in saw that the mass shooter is were you know, there's a lot of causes for mass shootings. But the they're boys that are doing the shooting not girls. But then they're not only boys they were dead deprived, boys. And so I started looking at ISIS recruits and seeing that almost all the ISIS recruits were either dad deprive boys or the much smaller percentage were dad deprive girls, then looked at the ninety three percent male prison population. And so that that more than ninety percent of those males were dad deprived males..

It's jarring to someone who is religious. And I think it's sure to someone who's an atheist at the heart of the book.

Guys met Rogers going to be one of them we're going to. See, when they, expand the rosters to forty And is that ever going to go away Talks about it a lot last season The number got done with that that that won't, happen until the next collective bargaining agreement which. I believe is in twenty twenty one I get them confused with the NFL and the NBA NHL all the. Time to. The CBS's roll around here all right let's close the book on what has happened though in the, National League West and the, biggest story not only in the, division not only in the National League but in major league baseball and what could be probably one of the biggest traits that we have seen Midseason leading up to a trade deadline in, many years and that is, all star shortstop Manny Machado going, over to the dodgers egos get prospects and they weren't even really the absolute top prospects of the dodgers I think LA really made out, very very well ESPN's Tim Kirk and, talked about it, says, the dodgers pretty good and got better I think he's. A, huge difference maker I think he makes them the team to beat now in the nationally. The dodgers were pretty guard good anyway Kirk chin ads though that. The dodgers need to add to their pitching staff now whether, it's a starting rotation or in the bullpen they are. Going to need help, there Machado's, not the guy that's going to get them, over the top Machado is, a, guy that when the playoffs to roll around he's the guy that's gonna win. The game for. You he and Matt camp Justin Turner but to have a guy in the lineup let's go to get four five six ABC's, potentially in a playoff game and, the dodgers a play in game they are, wildcard Gabay, are looking at a seven game series and have a guy like Manny Machado in the lineup and was defense to. Boot that's pretty good adding one guy. When you're two games up doesn't mean you're going to sprint away from, everybody but it could happen. We watch, it happen with, the, Bax but this is the dodgers competence that they're going. To, make the playoffs and they needed that one more piece that one more bat to really. Put him over the top they were in the World Series last. Year three zero three seven one three eight five eight five, so that puts a rap on a five prospects from. The dodgers off the, Orioles the, dodgers look pretty darn good don't they coming, up for you we are, going, to go down on the farm and we will do that and we will. Talk about rotate. You have thoughts who should be the guy to start for the Rockies We head. Into the second half of the season tomorrow night what do you think Is. It just back to John gray great last Saturday and you go back up there it's just the way that we've been rolling what he's to Kyle Freeland up there or. Is it somebody else Okay yeah It could go just about. Any way so we'll do that here in just a little bit, three, zero, three, seven, one, three, eight, five eight five talked about in the all star game and how there were ten home runs and twenty five strikeouts in how at the mid point of the season overall, in baseball there are more strikeouts than there are hits or the Rockies are in that trend, quite yet but. They're. Close Season to date they've got eight hundred, twenty two strikeouts Trevor story leads away. He's got one hundred and two strikeouts Now the Rockies also again let's go to the power number's Iraqis have. Five guys that are. In double digits for home runs already Leading the way as Nollet Arnaut twenty three home runs Trump story has twenty Charlie Blackmon with nineteen Ian Desmond with eighteen and Carlos Gonzales with eleven you. Got the guys with the power hits wise Iraqis, have, eight hundred forty three So.
