You Can't Worship God if You Don't Stand up for the Voiceless

"I'm talking to our friend John Smith John. The biggest part of what we're going through as a country right now. And you were talking about it is that it's very difficult for us, Americans, naive, happy Americans, to think that this kind of evil is happening in our time that we have governors who don't just grope women, but send elderly people to their deaths. We find it hard to believe that we have somebody like Doctor Fauci doing things that end up rising to the level of evil, not just malpractice, but evil. He has great power, like Robert Moses had in New York. It's frightening. And we need to help wake each other up. Does the reality? And if you don't fight folks, if you do not fight these tip this one out, it's on you. I want to be very clear. The bonhoeffer book gives us a warning of what happens when people of faith in particular say, I'm not ready to fight yet. I'm just interested in worshiping God. You can't worship God if you don't stand up for the voiceless when they're being attacked. So when we see this kind of gross monstrous evil, governors like Cuomo murdering thousands of people in nursing homes. Scientists, bureaucrats, like Fauci, evading U.S. law in order to produce a deadly virus which the Chinese government then unleashed on the world while locking China down. Purposely flying people to dozens of different countries while preventing Chinese from traveling. Once the disease was out. When you see that most of the governments in the world with a few exceptions and Scandinavia are using COVID as a pretext to override all constitutional freedoms to install what we can only call a public health dictatorship to use vaccine passports to politically purge police forces and the military. What a great way to get faithful Christians out of the military out of the police where they could maybe make a difference in a dangerous time. Then by making them take a vaccine made from aborted babies or tested on aborted babies. Wow, what a great way to cleanse the armed forces to cleanse the police forces of any decent freedom loving

Remembering when Howard Cosell announced he death of John Lennon

"Time out, is called three seconds remaining. John Smith is on the line and I don't care what's on the line. Howard, you have got to say way. No in the booth. Yes, we have to say it. Remember, this is just a football game. No matter who wins or loses and unspeakable tragedy confirmed to us by ABC News in New York City. John Lennon, outside of his apartment building on the west side of New York City. The most famous perhaps of all of the Penis, shot twice in the back, rushed the Roosevelt Hospital dead on arrival. Hard to go back to the game. After that news flash, which in duty bound we have to take Right I need it is remember remember watching watching that that money money night game because I'm the oldest of 45 in here. I remember that when Howard Cosell reported that Mark David Chapman had murdered John Lennon in front of his apartment in New York. And wow, There was no social media back then. But the outpouring of great people were devastated. Devastated. Remember Princess Diana? Member seeing people lined up on Michigan Avenue. They were having some type of a memorial to her in Chicago because she had been here over at Northwestern and this one, and when Elvis that, like those three stick out in my mind, remembering those being announced Am I? Harry Carey, talking about the death of Elvis and crying. Harry and Elvis were tight. And you had John Lennon and this one. It was unbelievable. I know for those who have never heard that clip. They say. You know, Howard Cosell just can't kind is barreling in with the news. You gotta understand that Howard had no finesse. Like that voice and the the cadence. That's who he was. You would think you know, Living more somber, You know, eh, Frank? We've got some sad news, but he did the way he did it. You know if you hear the way he did, as on arrived, yes, that he comes barreling in with the news. But that's who Howard Woz, and so it actually is more jolting when he gives the news. And you know, Howard puts it in perspective, though. I gotta give him credit. He says just a football game. But I got you this news, Frank back to you. And I know you know what Franklin for does after that, That's gonna be tough hearing that news because of just how How much the Beatles and how much John Lennon meant in that era. No question. Do you know it's crazy, but that's so hard. He brings up the game right, so there were three seconds left in the game at that point. It was Patriots Dolphins. The scheme was tied at 13, and they sent in Patriots kicker John Smith Toe win the game. This is Howard Cosell makes the announcement three seconds left. Here comes the kicker Patriots kicker John Smith to kick the game winning field goal and it was blocked. That game went into overtime in the Dolphins won it But like there's a story on ESPN dot com today that the kicker John Smith will forever be linked to this because it's like right after Howard Cosell, who's one of the most you know, notorious broadcasters of all time, announces such an event. Then millions of people watching are glued to their seats, sees this poor man have to go in there. He probably doesn't even know what's going on. But he's gets his field goal blocked, and now he's forever linked to it. Yeah, I remember watching that money and I found ball. Thank you. Monday night football. Woz, eh? It was a thing, man. It was a happening like we didn't have Game on month. Two games on Monday. Oh, Tuesday, we're gonna play. Oh, we gotta shut this. We're gonna play it on Wednesday and we got Thursday night football. We got 40,000 didn't have all that There wasn't even son in a football. No, it was Sunday afternoon. You had a late game. That would sometimes get you know you served by Heidi, right? Um, correct, but But when you didn't have that going on, it was it was money Money. Knight was the only night game going on. During that time. Money? No, it was the only time I can get that all the highlights of the week also is why Berman does it kind of been a traditional manner on my football today. You've seen the highlights a million times, but it just Berman in there. Give that gravitas of what? It was back in the day. So yes. Oh, my night football had such a such an enormous event. It was it was that for and also money that baseball for me as well, Because it is part of the brand going night football. Think of money. I'd baseball. The Tigers are playing with the lights. That's interesting. Yeah, Esso. It Z one of those things cap where When you have that kind of news now, keep in mind. They didn't break into the game, ABC News or anything else like that? It was announced right there at the game, Correct. It was strong, right? It wasn't We have to break away because we've got major news. Here's you know. What's that? Peter Jennings? No, no, no, no, no, Howard. And you know, in his ear there like you got to announce this and you've got to do it right now. Because I think it was the right decision. I mean, that was a massive massive name.

Fourth quarter 13 13 time We went to this early. I'll make it quick here. The ABC News people got a phone call specifically, Bob Good. Which the producer of Monday Night football who relayed the message to the president of Monday night football room knowledge. You remember that name certainly does. Yeah. Big shot very big, like Dick Ebersol was for NBC. Human pioneer. Exactly. World of Sports Exact and Monday Night football. What time it is John McKay. Very good. It was a Jim McKay. I'm sorry, Jim McKay Anyway, he they get the news that Lennon was shot the Monday night football crew that night. For the most part, it was usually Gifford, Howard Cosell and Dandy. Don MEREDITH. But another folks filling well that night it was Gifford Cosell and Fran Tarkenton. Other nights. O. J. Simpson was Joe Nemeth. Those were the three. That's quite a crew. That is quite the crow. Yes, Frank Gifford and the late Frank If the late Frank Gifford, the late Howard Cosell friend talking to the great invited China Still, unfortunately, the not late Oh, Jason, That's why we've never was convicted. Maybe I shouldn't say that. Well, he lost the civil suit. He did. And then he went to jail in Vegas. Anyway, they rue knowledge reaches out to his guys going commercial. And he says, Listen, I just got wind. There's been a murder of very popular musical star in New York City, and Howard Cosell is like this is a huge game. It's 13 13 in the fourth quarter. I don't want folks to move away from the game and go watch. You know, Tom Brokaw all or Dan rather than that is just sell ridiculous. Not unbelievable. I mean, I just can't even fathom and Howard Cosell actually was saying that to ruin all, how would Cosell was really uncomfortable? Delivering the news a because, he said, I'm not a news guy and be because it was a big game and it was tied the way you have to inform the people no matter what. Well as it turned out, he did now, Frank Gifford said before his death, in an interview on outside the lines on ESPN in 2015 that after delivering the news, how would want to the telecast to stop? Like, Forget the game. You'll find out someplace else that eventually, John Smith kicked a 35 yard field goal and the Patriots beat the Dolphins on that night 16 to 13. But They didn't stop the telecast. He finished the game. You know, they probably just didn't have people in place. If they had people in place, or Jennings they well, maybe Peter was out getting liquored up somewhere. You know, he was a man about town. He was He was like you said earlier bubble Walters. They probably could have grabbed somebody. But the truth is, how would Cosell was such a huge voice? Back then, and he was on the air. And so after this little back and forth during commercial break, they decided to deliver the news and 40 years ago tonight, December 8th Here's what it sounded like from Howard Cosell. Remember, this is just a football.

"I lost a great friend in the world lost a legend one day I hope we can play ball together in the sky. Former England striker Gary Lineker, who was part of the England team that it was beaten by Argentina back in 1986 during the World Cup quarterfinal, says Madonna was by some distance the best player off my generation and arguably The greatest of all time and you've enters on Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo said. The world beats their world Twin eternal genius. Well, we could spin out to John Smith. He represented Maradona as his agent from 1987 to 1990. Thanks very much for talking to us here on news day and eternal genius, arguably the greatest Of all time, perhaps not the easiest man to represent no, really surprisingly, but he was a remarkable person. But he was actually two people. Really. There was married Donna. The showman and the pot. In my humble opinion, probably the most talented footballer ever on. That was Diego and Diego for me, was always The little boy from Argentina. Still, he never in the time I was with him it was for some years. He never stopped being that lovely little person who I knew and who I met, and then he started the world stage and became this wonderful showman and they were distinctly two different people and did the showman and the little boy did they ever know moments of doubt because his talent was so supreme. And yet, like everyone else, he must have had his moments where he wondered what was going wrong or what he could do more off. No, I think the problem was no. You know, As far as I remember, whenever I was with him, he was supremely confident in his own abilities. And loved displaying them. He was a complete showman. That, he said That dichotomy was that whilst his life went into some very dark corners, he shown this amazingly bright light onto the sporting arenas where he was and when, when he stopped being that person when the game was over, when the parties were over, he, Wis. Went back to being Lovey Lou Diego, So I guess in his own world, he was very confident, but he was also able to be in touch with his own. I was going to say mortality. That's the wrong word to use today but with his own personal deficiencies. I mean, we talk about geniuses. I don't know. I've been fortunate to meet a few of them. Over the years, I've never met a genius who was not flawed. So I guess it comes with the territory. We've heard a little earlier on the program about his special connection with Napoli. Was that something that was very obvious that it was a key part of his career in the time where you knew him? When I met him. He was already in Naples on D. He loved it because again, it was two different things. He loved the intensity of the city. I mean, you drive around Naples in those days, and there were huge posters of Jesus hanging off a Many buildings and then it could really huge purposes of Diego Maradona alongside Jesus. So the intensity the emotional intensity was ink was incredible. I brought him to London a few times because he although he wasn't exactly anonymous when he came here, he could breathe. There was space here. And he quite liked the fact that it was so huge and so cosmopolitan, but the intensity of Naples, the region that love the affection on what he was achieving for the region. Both from a sporting point of view and also economically because he drove enormous monies into that region. All right. John Smith, a former agent off Diego Maradona. Thank you so much indeed. Hit to South Africa now where they witnessed the Syrians of tax against truck drivers in recent weeks fronting the president, Cinerama Poser to condemn the escalating violence were. Various reports say that dozens of vehicles have been satellite and drivers of being killed on the country's major highways. To discuss this issue. We're joined now by giving Kelly who's the CEO of the Road Freight Association in South Africa. Morning to you. Thanks for joining us. What can you tell us what you make of this violence against truck drivers in South Africa? Do you have details of what's been happening? Good morning. We've being subjected to violence over the last 21 to 24 days, and this has been a resurgence of what has happened in the country. Over the last 2.5 years. We first saw the sort off violence in about 2018 over what we call our Easter long weekend period with the first sets of tracks. With torched at various toll gates and gain trees down on the southern coast off South Africa and the cause, a little Intel province and what had been raised. That stage was an issue relating to labor and how people were employed in the road, right Statistics arena. So this is a resurgence of that. And in the last couple of days we've seen up to this morning again, including this morning around about 34 trucks having being torched, so they'll petrol bombed on tracks being shot at we've had so far. Unfortunately, one driver passed away due to being firebombed in his vehicle so he won't to death. The second driver is lying, critically injured in hospital from gunshot wounds, So this is really at the state of play right now operated the skin of operating On certain routes of night. One isn't surprised by that a tour with those kind of threats Now we heard earlier this morning that it was said that these are foreign drivers, which you're being attacked Foreign truckers on that There's actually anger amongst some South African truckers because they feel the business is being taken taken away from them. But you've written to the president Saying freight companies find themselves attacked by forces under the pretext of foreign nationals taking jobs. What do you mean by that? Well, First of all, these are not foreign operators being attacked. It's local operators, sort of a sudden they're freaking companies on the pretext is that start African companies are employing foreign citizens are not local citizens, Foreign citizens in droves to to drive these vehicles because the pretext is that they can pay these guys lists and they don't have to get in the basement of employment. We know that in the South African freight industry from the Register Cos they're about 65 or 1000 employees and over 65,000 odd employees. They're only 6.5 1000 foreign drivers registered, so there's no truth behind the statement that that South African Cup I'm pulling foreigners in droves. Can I ask Because you've recently been saying that you know your industry freight industry is really suffering and is going to suffer even more because of the covert pandemic Seems that these latest attacks it just kind of almost like the final coffee, their final nail in the coffin. Well, you all know, suppose that what covet 19 has done to the various economies and the various domestic logistic chain, So we have obviously suffered from a severe lockdown, which startled a lot of transports. A lot of companies are under Juries. But yes, if you started taking the supply chain than that of Africa, we don't have an alternative with around it work. It's not just not both to do this sort of road. Do the domestic transport like road does so we now have this logistics supply chain being attacked. That's going to fix the economy. Any sort of recovery that might be expected is not going to It happened. Very briefly. Would you like to see some kind of security posted along some of these roads where these attacks are taking place? Obviously, yes, we'd like to see the police services deploying along these routes and ensuring their clashing limits. Protected would also like to see them do in the investigations beforehand, using the detective branches to identify those who want to perpetrate this and to resolve that be fortunes into violence that is their own. Having Kelly thank you very much for joining us, and he's the CEO of the Road Freight Association in South Africa. Tuesday on the BBC World Service. Now the possibility of having an operation or suffering an accident and getting away with no scarring afterwards has taken a step forward thanks to a tiny fish. Go down to the zebra fish often used in medical research as they share many of the same genes as humans. Now scientists at the University of Bristol in the west of England about to start a new five year research project, looking to see what it might eventually be possible to help people heal without scars. It's thanks to a $2 million investment from the.

"The nice thing is David is if your ancestor had an unusual name obviously wouldn't apply to somebody like John Smith. But if they had an unusual name, and you could find there's a letter waiting for them in a post office in a newspaper ad of digitized newspaper than that can give you a direction of where to look in. Your research is to where somebody might have moved to all right. I mean, the other thing that's really kind of fun with that whole thing. Is that a lot of places they're not city directories or there are you know it's in between a census here. You could use this as sort of a sense of substitute. If you will speculating that the person within, say, six months may have lived in the community that they knew that the person was there. It's interesting to think of. How would the post office know you lived in the town? Period. I mean, someone could send the letter to me in Boston, Massachusetts. I don't live here. I work here back. Say in 18 70. Maybe that's the reason I didn't pick it up. Because, well, I don't live here. Why would I have a letter there? It would have to be care of. And maybe these people miss directed Ah, letter. Perhaps, you know, they put the wrong town that it was supposed to be or the wrong state. I mean, there's Boston, Kentucky, is was Boston, Massachusetts, So I mean, I could see were confusion could happen and letters misdirected or the wrong name on it. So yeah, it's a good mystery. But yet that's why they just did not do delivery. The House the House back in those days. Well, it's kind of fun. Sometimes I've looked at that. And I've seen a letter to Oliver C chord or whatever. And I think to myself what I would give you if you feel so close to be able to actually obtain the letter and read what it said. And who was it from? And what was it about? And your mind kind of goes crazy on that, But you know that's the fun of genealogy is trying to put these mysteries and these puzzles together. And newspaper ads for letters that haven't been delivered can be another great clue. And perhaps you'll figure out that that's part of the timeline and is everybody knows I'm really big on putting the other timelines for people. That's a great question. We appreciate that, Jolene.

How to get quoted in the media

"240 have you ever looked at? Jane or what an article and wondered me how other Founders or CEOs are getting quoted in these stories. It's probably not a happy accident. It's probably a PR person placing them that way there but wage it doesn't mean that's the only way to get in there. So today I'm going to give you some Insider tips on how to get placed in the media as a thought leader a, enter an expert may want to be considered a thought leader. Then you have to prepare yourself in this situation to get quoted or to get asked for expert insights. So these are the few tips that might help you get started and get positioned for this kind of right now first. You have to have your basics down first prepare a brief bio that highlights your expertise and why you're an expert so think of yourself in the biggest form possible how many years of experience what are your degrees? What are Awards You've Won or big clients that you've had. I know it's tough sometimes to put yourself in the shoes of how you want to be viewed as a professional, but if you can't see yourself them, Nobody else will make sure you note, you know, any author articles or Publications and this is all intact so it should be maybe two paragraphs of a bayou and it's always nice to have like a bio and a short bio depending on the different rules for Publications or broadcast. They'll be able to publish one of the other second have a really nice high birth had shot and a lifestyle shop ready to go. So headshot is basically, you know, the face face forward had shot that you might have white background smiling recognized maybe up to your bust and then a lifestyle shot is more like, you know, you laughing or it looks like they're working or you're walking, you know, it could be anything. You can be enjoying a hobby but not sure you're the only one in the shot and it's high resolution which basically is 300 DPI dots per inch you might want to have both of those handy so that you can have a little perspective and if you want more I mean 3 a.m. I've had shots is always a good number to have I think investing in this is really great because it always makes you look much better and positions you as really the expert that you are. So the first thing to do when you're getting ready for this kind of activity is kind of set up some goals and I would set up like a monthly time to go over topics because this is a way of you being relevant and timely issue with what's going on in the news and what's going on in your industry. So I would maybe take a few maybe a couple hours like the day before a month starts or the very beginning of the month to outline like these are off to five topics that I might be talking about this month. And so figure out your position being able to talk about relevant current events is key. But what is your position on those current events? And the more second thing is you could say the more controversial things you could say about it. The more likely it is that you are going to be leveraged as an expert. So have something really insightful. To say have a solution and if you want to Stir It Up Stir It Up know how far you're willing to go and obviously the more you're willing to bend the rules. The more exciting that is odd for people to listen to and include in their stories next whatever three to five topics that you've kind of come up with developed your can response or statement. And so this will serve as a foundation for when you're ready to respond to something that hits the news you can grab a statement and then make a few tweaks to it and then send it off and that way it like reduces the amount of time that you have to spend in the moment. If you see an article and you're like, oh I want to respond to it. It's already it's already ready to go. You might just have to like edit it for like five ten minutes. Lastly you made me want to make a list of reporters or Outlets that you think are most relevant to you that particular month or you've been thinking about it or you really want to be an expert or position. They're dead if it's broadcast or news make sure you're watching The Daily News and that you respond right away, but identify 5 to 10 people who might be controlling editorial content. So that's typically Anna broadcast. It's the producer and those emails are found directly on those news websites, if it's written then you might want to look at the T. I see who's the editor-in-chief or the content director or on the digital media director or the online media editor. So you might want to have a few different contacts and get this is the moment where you create relationships. So what you could do proactively if you spend one or two hours doing this at the beginning of the month. I promise that you'll have some kind of result where you'll feel good about spending the time. It'll definitely be worth your time. A little bit ski if you're a really really really, you know want to get a placement but let's say you just want to put yourself out there and you do it every month and you kind of see it as a newsletter and you add it to something about doing almost like a newsletter distribution or something that at the beginning of the month. What you could do is say hey, you know, my name is John Smith and I'm an expert in artificial intelligence package this month. I see there's a lot of interesting Trends and these were the things that I'm talking about. If you're writing a story. Please contact me and I'll be happy to make some commentary and of course you're going to make a case for yourself a little bit more than what I decide but like also why they should contact you because you're an expert in Ai and you've worked with you as many companies and then you list those three little bullet points that you've outlined earlier and your position on them. And if it's interesting enough, they might want to pick it up and write it so it could be an activity you do every quarter every month, but then them Emails from you on a regular basis, they'll start to get to see your name. You keep calling yourself the same thing. So consistency is very important. You'll one month be an AI expert and the next next month be an expert in economics. You can't do that. Make sure it's consistent your branding for your personal self means to be consistent with what you're saying and what you're pitching.

"John Smith they didn't need their armored vehicle. Right, right. All right. So so talk for a second about this, This falsehood that that you have. Do you have hand grenades out there? You using those? And now I'm like what Some council members referred to armored vehicle is a tank right tank is actually an epic readily find this information out. They could ask me they could ask any of the rank and file their infused with their journal is Yeah. So So armored vehicles are defensive. And in nature, they deescalate situations because if you're in that, and you're evacuating the citizens from adjoining houses on a barricade, hostage situation, whatever that we take rounds on that armored vehicle all the time. So does the counties. You know, the armored vehicles around center, Ohio have saved hundreds and hundreds of lives. They are not an offensive weapon. We don't launch ordinance from them there. We don't shot she grenades and we don't know so there they they can actually deescalated situation Because if you are shot out in an armored vehicle, you don't necessarily have to. Fire back the same thing with wearing camouflage well, looks to military. Well, The fact is, we went to camouflage because folks who are gunman who are randomly shooting out of a window or trying to target someone out there. If they have cannot targets a targeted us because they can't see us. A swell were then not in a position to have to return fire so quickly. It's all about deescalating the same thing with wearing masks and helmets. If we took a survey of columns, police officers hit by bricks and bottles in the face it had they not had the shield they've been disfigured. Eyes seriously injured throughout these past riots that now they're going to be judged on by this new committee to try to charge and discipline and fire police officers. So I mean, it's what are they talking about? I mean, what I mean? What do they What is there to demilitarize? The officers on the street? Don't have fully automatic weapons. I mean, what? What are they? Can they even articulate? Yeah, they got the only argument I've heard so far is the fact that it just doesn't look good. So much of what? They're basing their mantra, is it? You know, like a use of force. It didn't look good. That shooting didn't look good. You know, I've been around for a long time in law enforcement and passed my 33 years on the department. I've done training or whatever, for at least 40 total years, and I've yet to see a use of force or use of deadly force. Look good. They don't their violence, right? You know, So anyway, they're thinking that our presence are mere presence like I'm my presence on the corner. When I'd let the single moms let her kids out my presence there.

Ely Parker | Part 2 | The Civil War

"Hello and welcome to Iroquois history and legends. I'm Caleb. I am Andrew we are continuing with our series on the lustrous Mr L. E. S. Parker last episode we talked about his early life is education his diplomacy with the United States and his job as a civil engineer, and where he finds himself, now is in between jobs, and at the brink of the civil war in the United States breaking out, and I'm GonNa sum this up. Up What had happened was we saw all these native American peoples being removed from their land and forced to move west across the Mississippi and into the Oklahoma territory with all these native peoples depopulated from the eastern United States that left all kinds of area that opened up for agriculture and farming, and this led to more tension between the northern and southern states, because you had people joining to rush into the southern and western states. And, they wanted to make sure that slavery was instituted these places because then they could keep their balance of power higher in the US Congress were they could get more senators or members of the House of Representatives to make policies that would guarantee the rights of the southern territories and states, so that's where we find ourselves in and states are rushing around to be declared slave or free, and then a Abraham Lincoln gets elected president, and all heck breaks loose now you may think hey, Parker. He became a captain in the New York. State militia right so he's probably getting ready for war to. But no, he wasn't called upon for his services in engineering in the military or anything so after he finished his contracts in. Illinois he moved back to the tunnel, Wanda reservation and began farming. He quickly became very bored Andrew farming was not the life for a man like him. Many of the Seneca were gearing up for war, looking to join the United States Army Parker went and spoke to his father. Who as you recall from last episode was a veteran from the war of eighteen twelve, and he received his blessing to take up the war, Pat, but Parker. He wasn't. GonNa go as grunt. He wanted to go as a commission soldier. You'd already been. been a captain in the New York militia, so he asked the governor of New York for a commission like a real commission is apparently the militia commissions didn't really count the governor of New York declined so then what did he do when things fail in New York do what everybody else does. Go to a different state. I'm just kidding, but he did. bypass New York state and try to go directly to the federal government. You know. He had some friends in high places in Washington at this point, so he said Hey. Captain in the New York State militia civil engineer. How about a commission? declined. He got a letter from the Secretary of war Edwin Stanton. Quote. Parker this is a quarrel between white men, in which you Indians are not concerned, unquote. Another federal official that he wrote to told him quote. Unquote and I'm sure. They said it just as condescendingly. Some people may have made departure that his lack of US citizenship. Maybe what's holding him back from getting this commission? Because this is the same time that we see, he actually applied for citizenship. Oh, how'd that work out for him? Mile had a lot like everything else to the government. He was turned it down again. So from eighteen, sixty, one to eighteen, sixty two, he worked on his farm, and he also worked for the Indians on the reservation. He penned one letter to an old militia General John Martindale where he jokes about being a bad farmer and eating a wife, he asked the general quote. If, he knew any strong, healthy, double breasted woman that would want to be a farmer's wife. Can you say that again? That strong. HOW DOUBLE BREASTED WOMAN! So I thought you said? Did you think double breasted? Okay then we're just. This is a family home to show after all so. We'll just leave it at that. I don't know it seems like pretty good things to look for in a woman. Was His. With a lot of single I'm. You were saying. Parker has been farming for about two years now any starting to think that he's never gonNA. Get his chance. But he did still have a few friends looking out for me and you. And they were a couple of friends that were becoming pretty influential in the war, and Parker didn't even think the contact them. One of them was the jeweler in Gallina, and the other was the grocer. They are now being known as General John. Smith and General Ulysses S grant. They actually said to themselves. You know who we could use right now is parker. Parker was joined to the General Staff with the rank of captain in May twenty, fifth, eighteen, sixty three, but you'll never guess Andrew. He found another complication and this one is coming from a different. Place than you would think. If you remember Parker was made a what. Saito in say tim was a life appointment. Holding has shown checks and balances aspect of the government. Say Chimps were the political leaders. And they could not go to war right? You would have a war chief appointed, and you would have your say. And you'll have your clan. Mothers Each end so now he wants to go to war, but he's a saint shown so Ariza. Wait a minute. Can you legally legally from the? WHO NEEDS schone standpoint? Can you legally go to war? So a meeting was held, and they decided that sense he would be a captain fighting in the war of the whites. You would not be violating the checks and balances protocol.

"Denise Teacher Magic Johnson wants to help you get more interviews in front of a lot of audiences as well as build relationships along the way he specialized in this craft, and actually has a whole program on it, but luckily he's here today to show you how to get started. I'm on around thirty to fifty different podcasts as a guest every single year and I should be doing more because the opportunity is there and it is actually a lot of value. It's a lot of value for. For the time you're going to be putting into these interviews, remember podcasts are evergreen so once it's recorded, and it's in the podcast feed. People can go back and listen to it over and over again new listens will listen to your interview for years to come, so you reap the benefits for years after you actually were interviewed but I'm GonNa. Let Man Johnson get into all the details. I'll be back to wrap up today's episode and give my takeaways, but for now take it away Matt. Everybody welcome back. It's Matt Johnson and we're GONNA. Talk about the four ways to upgrade your relationships in your network using podcast interviews now here, let me set the scene for you, so let's say you're going on podcast and your guest, which is awesome Some of the people that you're going to be interviewed by are in and of themselves ultra successful. podcasts does these days are not just people who are looking to make money and monetize a podcast. A lot of the the successful podcasts hosts are in their own right experts. Entrepreneurs Ultra successful business coaches, consultants, speakers, authors, the whole nine yards. These the people that you want to be connected with these are the people that can refer you speaking engagements. They can help promote your book. They have a big email list that they might be able to promote your latest. Service offering these are the people that you want to be in relationship with because they can send you business, not just be a client. They can send you a stream of clients, and so you. WanNa turn those podcasts interviews with them into not just them interviewing you and then moving on any never talk to each other again. You'RE GONNA. Turn them into real real relationships and we're GONNA. Talk about four insider tactics to do that number one. After the interview when you're chitchatting behind the scenes after the record button is off, ask them. Hey, just out of curiosity. Like how can I help? Who Can? Who can I keep an eye out for to introduce you to like? Who is that person in your world? That that would really make a difference. And I can tell you the difference that's made for me in my life to ask people that question I literally cannot express how it almost stops people in their tracks and causes them to completely go. While I first of all I appreciate Let me let me think okay well. You know I'm looking for this type of person. Even if they can't come up with something, and even if the person they're looking for is not someone that you know right away in your life that you can send an introduction email. That's fine. The questions were count and the genuine offer if it's January. The genuine offer is what really makes an impact. It's absolutely incredible now. I'll tell you I. did this with with a gallon I had on on my podcast. And I just wanted to thank her for her time and ask that same question and. She mentioned that was looking for people to speak at her women's conference in Texas, the said okay. I think I have someone for you I didn't think anything of it. I made a simple introduction email behind the scenes I get a message from the person I introduced you to her two. Weeks later like I had completely forgotten that I'd made the introduction I got this incredible facing measure the city. I just wanted to thank you. That was life changing. I've found my tribe. It was so awesome like I can't wait to tell you about it. Can we please set up a calls that I can tell you how much I appreciate that introduction like that absolutely blew me away. The same thing will happen to you especially as you get into the habit of asking people who you can introduce them to, and then being intentional about actually making strategic introductions behind the scenes, so that's number one officer strategic introductions wherever possible follow through and actually do it. Number two. Insider tactic to turn and podcast interviews into relationships is send a follow up note now. This is if you're busy entrepreneur. This is ridiculously hard to do most of us and I will tell you sitting down and doing the actual handwritten note cards slapping him into an envelope putting a stamp on it throwing in the mailbox. A step too far can do it like way way too way too hard for me. so what I did. Is I I told my my va for my log for the company called. Send out cards. actually got. Right here actually I received this one. And very nice card from a friend of mine, and basically I can build this card in their. APP and have a handwritten note and written right handwritten. Looking note the goes into is sent from the APP and I. Can send it out to anybody. I want so what I did is I built a low system with my overseas va I gave her. Her my log in for the send out cards account and every day she goes into my calendar, and she looks at who I had caused with the previous day sends me a message on boxer and says hey. I see to call John, Smith and Sarah Johnson, and whatever Hey, would you like me to send cards to and I will say okay. Okay. Send cards to these three people and I. Just give her a voice message to tell exactly what I wanted to say in each card. Teach different person she reaches out sends him. A nice email, says hey. Matt would like to send you a thank you note. He really enjoyed talking to you the other day. Would you mind sending your mailing address so that we can send you a nice a nice car? always get a response. First of all the response we get to that email alone would blow you away. then when we actually follow through in the actually get the note I get thank you notes to the thank you. Notes

"john smith" Discussed on WGN Radio

"Involving the unemployment office my seven what he's been working from home and I got a call from his office because someone close date was checking back to see if you know John Smith they spelled it one letter off and gave the last four digits of the social which didn't happen a match which is very and ask well you know he is this man you know been furloughed may go no so supposedly the state will be getting back to his office but that that the scam out there who knows where they either are some of the new hires working for the type in a a long letter someplace or tried who knows how it but I just wondered if anybody else who's had that the scary experience some trying to figure out how that would work so they call you I'm not sure how the scam works and they they've got the last for the social nobody called the state called you know somebody called again is John Smith and tied up all the lines is unemployment so the unemployment office is calling D. employer to say is this man really per location all they have to check back before they can I see so that was a call during the employer saying has he been they say no he's working but clearly somebody's trying to collect unemployment benefits and your son's name yes while but I have not heard of any I mean this doesn't surprise me not at all but I haven't heard you know Kwame role or anybody saying they're going after you know that they've they figured out who this is is this Russian hackers are just take that are figuring out how to do already in Nigeria right some information on the black got the last laugh or not but they got the last four social numbers right yeah yeah well I don't know if when the person said that you know I don't know how that that crappy the computer system failed the unemployment insurance is from delight all work but maybe that when they say John Smith and they give you know a little bit maybe it pairs up with John Smith with this number John Smith but that number in right you know somebody who's not aware because there's a new hire for the department of the employment office matched it you know so they made a connection that I don't know that it really looks somebody out if they're working from home and they're all by themselves and you know you also think of the case to where somebody is furloughed they are are waiting to get unemployment if somebody has stolen their I. D. and is now collecting in their name maybe they're not going to get it and then the way forever good somebody else now worry never mind I did not say that we've got enough to worry about merry thank you for at least the heads up on that okay take care John yeah have you been to that movie I first heard about that but again you can't be surprised if you hear any of those things I lean you're on WGN radio how can we help you today and he had a Comcast tech come out and meet he did that with the battery just take the battery out for a few seconds put it back again and your internet will be back on that work for you yes I gotta tell ya I gotta tell you they should put that if you're just joining us last couple of days I just mentioned it now that I've found some sort of support for my anxiety for my problem I've been maybe voicing it louder than I should but our cable's been cutting out lately Michael be watching the show and all of sudden the TV goes off or we get an error message in the middle of the screen we can't watch it any further our internet will cut out in the middle and you know we're not using twenty two devices were not do anything real complicated I'm like this is so frustrating especially when I can't find anybody at my cable provider to help me out and I suspect every single person works for the company is a really nice person and they want to pay their bills and do the best they can but it just seems like that system isn't accommodating me because I can't get to human being and so this business of tight the cable and then plug it solve some problems but it installed the mining several of you said when you do that you need to take the battery out just like you take the unplug the cord wait a while and then put the battery back into but the there is no mention of that on the website I lean I know that but it actually because I'm seventy nine years old actually came out because I lost my TV and my internet yeah me too I wish every night well it was a loose cable in the back of the TV which is the fifty events and I can't move it and you know I can't move to stand so they did come out which they're not usually doing right now and then he went to the internet and it took him thirty seconds to lift that have where the battery is take the battery out I think it's green three inches long and put it back in the big one tell her I will add this been very helpful I think you'll be you'll be hearing back from me next week and I promise you'll know how it went okay okay thank you I love your program Jan I listen to you all the time I think we got a big audience there and there's some nice people out there like you thanks for listening okay by helping out Stieber trend was talking the other day about how when people are coming towards him he doesn't feel the need to step out off the curb right if you've got a mask on and I've got a mask on we're going to be fine right maybe even if I don't have a mask on we're going to be fine we're not going to stand next to each other he said he wants to build T. shirts that say something like it's OK if you want to stand next to me I'm okay you're going to be fine let's all just chill out or walk past me right now in a couple of people texted in the same thing Steve should have T. shirts like the bumper sticker if you can read this you are too close meaningless that might work although they may pause to actually read it and then defeat the purpose yeah but that's contrary to my message if you can read this it's cool just keep walking well maybe make the font real small I mean the point is right if we're just passing by each other we're okay we're okay and I'm with you on that Steve I am with you on that although I'm getting more and listen to the people that work at three oh three east Wacker downtown Chicago we're we do we're in a skyscraper and it does not have that many elevator shafts and they are limiting you to four people per elevator when you come back to this building they have set up ropes like you're at Disney world or someplace and you have to stand in a line like at the airport like TSA is what it's like and then what and that's kind of weird too because I guess we'll have to socially distance us in those lines we're going to start coming back right so this line is going to be out the door of our building well you know that makes sense because I'm looking at the stanchions they have set up right itself looks like a long line it does and I've never seen that many people in the lobby no I have not either so but if you spread each person in their six feet apart then that makes a line longer again it looks worse than maybe it is I was to go by Benny's the other day because that's where I spent a lot of money now that's where you spend your long time I'm telling ya I there were people in line out the door Denny's and they were all the way standing on Broadway they were out the door near Broadway and all the way over the hall stead so they were limiting the number of people in the store and there were enough people waiting to get in that it was you know a parking lot deep now that might not have been that many people relative to the stores usual capacity maybe that line would move quick but it was very discouraging and I just drove right past it so we need to start voting at Benny's why because we know how to socially distance all the thing will show up Hey is the president in Michigan right now he I won just watching videos knowledge probably tape delayed as he was leaving Sarah probably on his way going to go to that auto plant it's a landing and boy talk about a dumb thing to waste time on the whole world's going to see if he's got a mask on it's sort of like the desire to finally catch Brock Obama smoking a cigarette people just want to see if they can see him wear the mask it's it's going to be the gotcha shots of the week if Donald Trump wears a mask and this photograph wearing what they did I think I'd be good form to wear the mask well that ship has sailed Steve he doesn't want to wear the mask he doesn't want to wear them what do you do okay politically speaking over don't you think you do self a favor by wearing the mask I don't know as the downstate lawmaker who made a grandstand so each before they do they throw him out and he we put a mask on I think they removed him yeah I'm not I'm not positive of that was I think our reporting earlier today right I know he wanted to vote so maybe then went back in with a mask on but somehow or another wearing a mask his devolved into a political statement even if our scientific or political views are different I hate to see us exercising our right to free speech that way ed what do you want to say you're on WG and hired work we do for you well you have to you're not certain that you're going to have a battery in your in your Comcast modem my initial modem did not have one I had to go I went out I challenge them on and they said they no longer supplied the battery so I went on the internet and bought one and recently I exchange that modem for another one and the new modem came and it did not have a battery on it so you're gonna have to look and see if you have a battery thank you for supplying batteries but the change of policy from when the last time my change I'm really counting on there being a battery back there and I'm going to take it out and put it back in and that's going to solve all my problems at well it it would you take it out is if you just unplug it then but modem starts running on the bag well not really I don't know about that yeah I hear you you have to take the battery out so the modem does truly dead you know with no power I'll get back in and after it gets done booting again then you can put the battery back and right I got that I got that I got that whispered to me and I got to go amount of time thank you for the help thanks for the calls we trust business.

Feeling lonely? Isolated? Your smart speaker can help (seriously)

"Show. I wanted to talk about how smart speakers could help those who feel alone. They feel isolated as we've all been quarantined at homework. Ninety five percent of the country has you know. Of course we know. Technology can help us feel connected and stay entertained. I'm talking about video calling over zoom. Or what have you with your friends or streaming Netflix show? That can help. But did you know you're smart? Speaker can help as well. So that's what I explored in this week's column so here are five ways that you're smart speaker. Such as an Amazon echo device or a google could help you get through these challenging times number one. A lot of people aren't aware that you can make free phone calls to any ten digit number in the US or Canada. In fact there are three ways to make a call first of all. You WanNa wake up your device by saying it's wake word. I'M NOT GONNA say it here and then you can say. Call John Smith or Mary Jones or whomever as long as they're in your contacts on your phone that's connected to your smart speaker. You're good to go. You could just say the contact name and you could say of course work or home or mobile or whatever secondly you can say dial and then say the number. The ten digit number or third. You can even use your smart speaker to call a local business. You could just say something like call the Home Depot at the corner of first and third and it will try to find that location and call for you. So that's one way you can use your smart speaker to stay connected number to play games. Some are Solo Games like the magic door for Amazon which is sort of a fantasy. Choose your own adventure kind of tail. Welcome to the magic door. Our journey depends on the choices. We make your first choice begins here with three roads. One leads to the mountains. Another leads to the see. The last is a spooky path into the dark forest. Of course you're going to choose the spooky paths right or you can play with family members like a game like song quiz which is kind of like name that tune and you can also play against someone in their home in your same city. The Third Way you can use your smart speaker to get through. These challenging times is to play music as research has shown music can be an effective therapy to improve your mental wellness and with more than fifty million songs at your Beck and call. Smart speakers might just be what the doctor ordered. You cannot only ask for a particular song or album or artist or genre or playlists but you can also get creative by adding extra words to get specifics. Such as asking for a live version of a song or add the word remix or cover version or something like that a fourth way to use your smart speaker while feeling alone and isolated is to hear some jokes. If you feel like you need a laugh you could say for example. Say the word. Tell me a joke and you may hear why was the chiropractor so busy back to back meetings Wa wa. Or here's one from Google nest. How did she know? The snowman ignored her greetings. He gave her the cold shoulder. Oh boy I didn't say they were good jokes and finally your smart speaker can also guide you through. Mindfulness and meditation sessions on Amazon device. You can say the word followed by open guided. Meditation and that free skill will open and it offers a different session every day. Typically three to eight minutes in length a soothing voice will walk you through the various exercises. Here's an example. The per visit Bonnie scan is to simply check in to see what's going on in your body with open curiosity. There's no need to judge or try to change anything you own Google device. You can say the wake word followed by open meditation guide. Finally if you use meditation APPS like call or head space. Both of those popular APPS also support Amazon Echo and devices wall.

Election forecaster Rachel Bitecofer explains "the reason Joe Biden is the nominee"

"Rachel Bitta coffer. Thank you very much for coming on the podcast on the pleasures. All mind. Jonathan. Thank you okay. So five years ago. Nobody knew who you were two years ago. Almost two years this come July. You did something that put you on them. Map what you do out. Two years ago and July I came out and on twitter where a grand total of six hundred sixty twitter followers and nice started. Trolling the big election forecasters and They were having serious conversations as to whether the Democrats could pick up the twenty three seats they needed to flip the house and I introduced my new theory and model which was Arguing no no no because her way undercutting us it's going to be about forty seats and the reason why is because the electorate is going to be reshaped by backlash to Donald Trump. Now you said in July is July twenty eighteen. You put out a forecast that said initially forty two seats and folks thought you were nuts. They did they thought I was nuts and Took real umbrage to the certainty number one that I was talking about Especially because I was pointing out a specific districts. Some of them were Obviously not controversial. They were agreed upon really competitive districts. They've released as toss ups by others. But and I was saying. No these are one hundred percent to flip but really Especially things like Virginia's seventh district which were not even on other people's radar at the time is that That's down in the Richmond area of the suburbs of Richmond. And I said not districts GONNA flip. I don't care if it has played host to one of the House Freedom Caucus most ideological members and David Brat. It is going to be a democratic seat after these elections. And and that's what happened. Is that one okay. So why were you so certain? I was so certain number one because I had already developed the theory and watched it play out and win election cycle actually in two thousand seventeen election cycle in Virginia. Where I happened to be based I Had said to my colleague as we entered that polling season. We did polling state. Polling there in Virginia You know this is my expectation. I think we're GONNA see an electorate. That's much more democratically In a democratically comprise. We're GONNA see more young voters more voters of color more women more college educated voters in these voters are going to be breaking much more strongly for. Democrats than what you've been seeing under the Obama years and we need to account in this In our likely voter modeling because otherwise our polling is going to underestimate the Democrats support or Ralph Northam support in the election. And you know My colleague was certainly In agreeance that there was going to be Advantage for Democrats but the size and the shape of it. I think you know he was a little skeptical of until we saw it manifest in that virgin the election and the election night I was coming up to DC to do some local radio on whammy with coach. Mandy and I was literally yelling in the car. Oh my gosh I should have modeled this. I should have put something out I. I knew this was going to happen. Was a nine point. Route and Democrats picked up fifteen seats in the house of delegates. And so I committed right then and there I was gonNA find a way to model my theory and I was going to do something for two thousand eighteen and that's what I did. Okay so you sort of talked to round your theory. What is the theory? The theory is for the last eight years of you know for eight years. Basically of the Obama Administration. You know we had this Obama. Coalition emerge right two thousand and six. You see the Democrats. Pick up control of the House of Representatives and Then you see them. You know flipping the presidency in two thousand eight. I mean think people forget how big of a mandate that Obama election was picking up You know states like Missouri and North Carolina in that process and then all of a sudden. It's just disappeared right. Twenty ten they go from from that huge Obama win in two thousand eight to just getting shellacked with sixty three seats in the House of Representatives. And you know the narrative that was set on the Cable News. Chagos was Oh. The Democrats have reached with Obamacare and independence turned against them. And that's the story of the and and you know sitting at home and working on my PhD. Just getting started in Grad School to get to this point where I am now and I remember looking at the election data and just being like that is not what the data says. The data says turnout collapsed. And when it did it collapsed were heavily amongst Democratic voters. People who cast ballots either as Democrats are independence but cast them for Democratic candidates. And I just couldn't understand why the media narrative missed that important component So you know when I was looking at You know the elections of twenty fourteen and twenty ten. I was thinking about who didn't show up to vote more than anything else. And you know that's really what drives my research. Is this argument that. In the polarized era where we do have such little bit of Crossover Voting Republicans Voting for Democrats and vice versa. What matters at the end of the day in a competitive race is the is the composition of the electorate demographically Because that will determine the partisan composition and if the partisan composition doesn't good for Democrats are GONNA lose the race only looks good. Apparently when Democrats are freaked out. And they're only tout when they're not in power so never crafts. All ways freaked out even when they are empowered. Sabih like an inherent trait. You would think now you you said that. Turn out collapsed in two thousand ten but also in two thousand fourteen and a lot of the media the chatter. The cable chatter then was it collapsed because of disappointment in in Obama at both in Tan and in fourteen is it as granular as that or is it that the the Democratic Party and the candidates didn't do enough to maintain the enthusiasm from Eight and twelve so glad that you asked because Anybody that follows me on twitter will know that. I put a lot of the onus on Democrats the Democratic Party The D. Trip The DNC the SEC and the way that they approach electioneering as compared to the way that the Republican Party approaches electioneering. You know in in terms of what happened Democrats do not do an effective job getting their voters excited to show up to vote They liked to have cerebral Conversations voters that overestimate no offense to voters the Basically the intelligence of the electorate think income search for exactly. I think everybody's on Morning Joe Panel and whereas the Republicans are talking to the gut always and it's always about stakes right. If you don't show up to vote everything you love will fall apart. Die Right I mean that's that's a message right and they make people care about things that are are things people don't care about people don't care about state and local politics. It's unfortunate it's not fair. It's actually rational given the amount of influence that state and local politics has over one's life but it's a fact right and so the way that Republicans deal with that is they tie. They nationalize state and local officials to national politics or to national issues like abortion and guns and that way the voters like okay. I don't care about John Smith but he supports trump and I love trumps. So I'M GONNA show up to vote right. Democrats really fail to tap into that nationalized messaging. You'll hear them all the time. Say we'll all politics is local right like it's like one thousand nine hundred eighty tip. O'neill thing and if that was ever true. It's certainly not true now. All politics is national. The Republican Party gets that they get that voters will only show up in a high stakes environment and so they make that high stakes environment for them.

"That's friends without the our best fiends. So this week on Veronica Mars. The title of the show was mute. John Smith and the little case of the week. Was this freshman kid who wanted to you. Know get close to ronca. So he hired her to find his long lost father who he actually thought was dead but he thought that he would get to hang out with Franca if he hired her for the jam and Dunton. Tom Was not dead nor was he too late. Yeah but here's the thing I don't understand and they just don't think they explained this in the podcast either. This Dad's name was John Smith. So yes you know. Hard to find right. So Veronica came up with this idea to send letters to all the John Smith's in the region and say that this kid justin had won some kind of scholarship And her plan was that John Smith even if he was dead. Beat yes which. This is where her plan didn't sound very effective Yeah he would be like well. My Kid's GonNa win a scholarship. I'm GONNA write back and say like sorry. You have the wrong address or something else. So using the scheme she found a John Smith who ended up being we think romantically involved with Julia. Who Is Justin Actual Dad? Who has transitioned to become woman right right? But here's my question. Did the the guy the parole officer? Who's now the boyfriend of Julia? Right was his name John Smith. No so how did he get the? How did she at the letter while I think it was? I mean I guess it was sent to the address that he lived at when he was still named John Smith and reps when she saw that she knew that that had at one time been her. Okay so I I it is. It is definitely one of those things where you have to let art wash over you. Yes like every Ivy League. Your debt lady in the video store had to be connected in some way I thought maybe she was the wife of the wife of the dad or something like that and you know they wondered on the Borana Comores investigation. Podcast how this kid wept to conclude that the lady in the sports car was his dad. I also wondered that and I see him making that connection the way they were talking about it in terms of. Here's somebody that I know in a fancy car in a place where you know. I wouldn't expect this person to be. I see him getting there eventually. I don't see him jumping straight to dad. I see him saying what are you doing here? Why you have Brown eyes wait what? Oh my gosh. Maybe they were short on time and they just cut that entire part out the added like I do. Editing this podcast. Oh what too much dithering getting to that job. But I think you need that because otherwise this kid is either rainy to establish this kid has a lot of friends who are trans in therefore would immediately jump to that conclusion which I don't think was established. Yeah and also. He definitely doesn't because he awfully horribly call her circus free. That's true. Yes so that so why I mean you could easily have slipped in that. He was watching a movie that had here but for him. But I don't see him jumping to that without any establishment that his head would go there because my head didn't go there no way. I'm living in two thousand twenty when rights. That would be a much more obvious. Plot twist so yes the short handing over at home when a little too. I mean good twist good nice. Twist there at the end and Excellent performance by Melissa. Leo Who is just adorable and you just wanted things to work out And you know sold it. I think even when it didn't quite deserve to be sold And also her boyfriend seemed very nice also and also like willing to listen to Veronica. Yes explain why she had broken into his garage before beater with the baseball. Exactly a patient Philo But yeah that was interesting but let this be a lesson to you. High School Freshman Boys. If you make up ruses to get in with the older hot girl this is the sort of thing that can happen right the aware of the Pandora's but you know it was sweet that at the end heeded caller. Tell her who is Bannon? So all will be well right. His mother is going to be really act. Yeah well it messed up. So yeah I speaking of mothers who messed up. Leeann mark me also down skeptical that Veronica is all had. Her mother cares about because in a lot of evidence of that later me not I mean like. Give her a call on the phone once in a while you could do that. I'm sure she's fine after everything in her life just fell apart. She doesn't need a mom right now. It'll be okay. Yeah no no lady who looks kind of like my mother from Bali Eddie. I am not going to take your word for this now for Veronica. Yeah that really stinks. She is in the end marshmallow. She has to be so tough. She's like a marshmallow in as`more that is getting constantly put over the fire and melted this episode. The case of the week was was nicely done. That was fine. The backstory part the Lilly Kane. Part the stuff that was in this episode should have been last week. Yeah because they follow up on the mother and the hotel room which I was like last week what nobody seems to remember that this happened and then all of a sudden this week. Oh Yeah right this week. She says her dad. Why was mom in that hotel? Which is exactly what you said. She should have said last week. Can't it wouldn't have been bad for Hallucination Lilly and I am just loving how they're working decide every episode. I didn't realize we were GONNA get hallucination. Lily also not just flashback. Willing but rocking the bloodied head in that scene. Awesome work But anyway you know having her suggest I guess or Dunkin's subconscious suggest to him that there was something that wasn't right could easily have come before Veronica finding the the finding out that lily ran a red light after she was dead right And it would make more sense because that doesn't get mentioned in this episode at all so I would have thought this is one of these times went. Oh they just changed the order of these episodes for reasons but no because troy was introduced in the second episode. So you couldn't just have him here right so it's weird. It's it's like something's off In these early episodes like they just tore up the scripts for the second and third episode. Put Him in a grab bag and then just Mauldin. Yeah what the heck yes. Seriously I mean I think you know this whole format of like a case of the week maxed in with the overarching you know. Lilly's death and Veronica's MOM's disappearance right. I don't know I mean the pacing of it might not be working. I it just. It just seems like that it seemed paste better. If these part in this one had been reversed with the part now End Did we see Veronica's counselor last week. I know she talked to her counselor. Who made her go. Take Pictures Right AIDS but I I think it was. Somebody else unpressured I looked up on. Imdb on its Paula. Marshall who played it in this episode and it looked like this was her first episode. So that's weird But you know you go. Keith use stealthy. Pi You you know for turning up at the place on the cup that she spill right in front of you guys got skins game right there. But he's so cute he is he really is and the interaction between him and Barranca is quite a dorm at the service and although you know in the the whole why aren't either for parents more concerned about her mental health given all stuff. She's been through the school calling him. In Hey we noticed your daughters you know struggling with these things I feel like yes they will and I also like you know he's like what's wrong and their own. Nothing you know. She's a great student. And then they real- office lists of like six huge issues. You know young through class. She has an attitude. She doesn't have any friends like yeah..

"No different today I remember my little disclaimer at the beginning that I'm not an attorney but I know something about this subject but it's my opinion only today I want to talk about in this subject is why would you do this to someone you love and here's I want to start with an example this is the truth this is a true example I always try to use true stories not made up stories I had someone come in recently and they've been together a long time but they're not married and they have a house together and on the deed it says John Smith and merry Jones I'm making up a couple names they're not married but they've been together a long time they love each other they care about each other they have a house together and it says John Smith and Mary Jones Ole miss the house as a joint tenants now again remember not attorney my opinion only but generally speaking joint tenancy one one joint tenant dies it goes to the other person so when John if John Smith dies first it goes to merry Jones is the joint tenant and it's her house and she can live there and life is good except for one except now the John Smith has left the house to his partner of all these years what about John Smith's kids they're out of the picture because of the joint tenancy John a left everything to his friend of the however many years Mary and now when merry dies there's going to be a probate and it's going to be a mess or a merry died first she would have left everything to John they're not member they're not married in my example and one John dies it would go through probate and it would be a mess because you got his kids and her kids they don't have any their kids and it's gonna be a mess and it and the mass is gonna be probate and that's what I want to talk about today for the next few minutes is probate why would anybody do this to somebody they love gold through probate the other reason I want to talk about probate is because when people come in or call me they talk to me a lot about well if we put mom on medic cow she's in a nursing home or if somebody goes on medic out when they died the state is going to come back and take everything they have and that's not true with one exception one exception there's no more medic cow recovery with one exception and I want you to listen to the exception because that's our subject today if someone's in a nursing home and they're over what sixty five they're in a nursing home seventy years old eighty years old and they die and there's a probate medic cal still has the right to file a claim against the probate of state they can file a claim against the trust they can file a claim against the joint tenancy or tenancy in common or for general medic hal but if you're in a nursing home medic cal can still file is state claim a read a state recovery action against a probate so I want you know because people call me all the time and tell me they're really worried that that I'd somebody my office this week who was already on Medicare al and they were terrified that one one of them when this person died to the state was going to come in and take the house away and I said no they're not because there's a trust but they do have the right to recover against a probate estate if you've been in a nursing home one medic cow so what I want me I'm gonna let me just set up a scenario so a member of the John and merry let's go back to John America only this time will make the merry John and Mary aren't talking one day and and John says the merry so we'll just do a will and that way will avoid all the pesky of you know trust off and we can go on line for a few Bucks and we can set up you know you can buy one of these programs for twenty nine ninety five or whatever it is and we'll just do wills and we'll just printed out will sign it will have it witnessed and we're done that's easy and who cares about probate anyway we won't be here and it will all just go to the kids the problem is that's not necessarily true probate it at that probate is a long drawn out court action and in layman's terms this is just my opinion the re here's the reason there's probate is when John and Mary died they had title to the house but when they died title to the house died with them well Bob they had a will in the will says it goes to their kids so it goes to their kids not all no because here's the problem this title holder died and will doesn't transfer ownership of anything to anybody all will is really a letter to a judge and what it says is dear your honor Mary and I used to own all this stuff we don't own it anymore because we're dead we'd like you your honor if it's okay with you to transfer everything to the kids are there are two lovely children that we listed in the will that's a court process it's a probate code process it's a process in which you're going to have to go through us if your order states over a hundred fifty thousand dollars your your there's another simpler probate if you're under a hundred fifty thousand but if you're over a hundred fifty thousand gross your family is going to probate the will and it's gonna be a court action can you do a probate on your own sure do most people try it no most people get an attorney to do it and there are a lot of attorneys that only right wheels because they want the probate fees which we'll talk about in a minute California is one of only a few states that lets the lawyers charge a percentage of the gross value of your assets when you go through probate as their fee so the fees are based the probate fees to the attorney are based on the gross value of your state here's the current rates these are the current probate rates remember the attorney's fees are based on the value of your wrist state it's three percent of I'm I'm sorry let me make sure I got this right I've I've I missed out of the bottom it's four percent of the first hundred thousand so it I mean my example I'm going to have a six hundred thousand dollars state I got a house for four hundred thousand and two hundred thousand in in brokerage accounts of bank accounts in a car and some other stuff so we have a six hundred thousand dollar state so the probate fees are four percent of the first hundred thousand so if the first hundred thousand cost four thousand the attorney's fee is four thousand dollars the second hundred thousand is three percent so we're now up to seven thousand dollars and then one percent two percent of the next eight hundred thousand so we had a six hundred thousand state so we had what what did we say up front four percent of the first hundred that's four three percent of the next hundred that's seven that leaves us four hundred thousand two percent of the next four hundred thousand is eight thousand so the total probate fees are fifteen thousand dollars on a six hundred thousand dollars date in my example is four hundred thousand in a house and two hundred thousand dollars in all other stuff and remember it's gross so even if you have a hundred thousand dollar mortgage they don't deduct that from the probate fees so if I was six hundred thousand dollars state where to go through probate at the death of the second person or a single person if they're you know whatever the the probate fees on a six hundred thousand dollars they are fifteen thousand dollars by the way the executor is entitled to the same fees so if you have a six hundred thousand dollars state you could spend you could put it in a lot of times executor waves their fee but you can have thirty thousand in probate costs it doesn't go to the court it doesn't go to the county it goes to the attorney and the executor if you had a million dollar estate or two million dollars state we're now talking we're gonna start talking serious money up the pretty soon so probate is a court process did you go through because you had a will and when you died that that will is going through the process called probate it takes about a usually a minimum of about nine months and I've seen probate easily last year and a half I want I have one attorney friend who had a probate that went on for eight years because there was a family fight eight years I'm not making that up folks I I don't I'm not gonna tell you what his attorneys fees were but it was a lot of money yeah do you understand that that probate is an expensive process and your will doesn't transfer anything to anybody it's a letter of intent to a judge well Bob I listed my two kids so it's automatically going to go to them no not necessarily there may be a family fight maybe you've got his kids and her kids and you didn't do it right and so his kids are going to be mad at her kids are going to be mad because you divided up differently and a judge is going to have to figure that out in the meantime the fees go up the time goes up all of that stuff goes up so you could spend a year two years in probate in addition probate Sir public it's public record what a probate closes you can look it up and find out what your last bill was how much the kids got who they were in fact there are services did sell that information so that people can go out and try to sell your heirs products or whatever if you're you know they they know all of that kind of stuff probate is not a good thing but lots of people at and again as I said if you're in a nursing home when you're on Medicare al that's the one place a probate the medic tell has the right to recover what Medicare paid out for nursing home it's time consuming and here's the other thing I will only goes into effect you're dead it offers zero help if your life well my son's the executor of by will so be it what will are you dead well no well then you did your son can't do anything what is the executor my well I know but you're not dead because your will only goes into effect when your yeah and then there's waiting period you gotta go through probate and you got to do all that kind of stuff so what if you have a renter in the house what if you have a mortgage on the house what if you have all of that stuff it's all going through probate and it's adding to the fees in addition the attorney may charge what are called extraordinary fees for out of pocket costs related to the probate so you have a choice you can stick your family with this or you could come in and see me or get the one of my workshops and let's talk about the alternatives to avoiding probate also let's talk about the alternatives that are available that would allow someone to deal with your state if you're not dead what who can deal with your stuff if you're in a nursing home.

"Was it John Smith in George's case yeah he had already done a great deal of of shall we say at teaching and lecturing already in the nineteen thirties having to do with the universal concept of life through the cosmos and the the commonality of the human genome and our scientists later on many many decades later Serra panem poor around they Maryland chemical laboratory who wrote the principle of live said the very same thing no don't be surprised when you learn another plan and while you walk out and somebody there to shake your hand and because they are common principles for construct whether that's XO biology or a biological chemistry or astro chemistry and we've discovered that the molecules combine the same place the same way that they come from space in the same manner and see the planets and that's true whether you're on this world on another world in the solar system across the universe there are principles of creation in nature because that's not half hazard they don't operate it doesn't operate by the chaos principle our own minds do and so George talked about this already then he already had his first telescope in thirty eight he took pictures already there and between thirty and forty and submitted to the government and they were non responsive and a year later a war in World War two so then they had other priorities and so and so George continue to follow the subject and take pictures and and and that led to the meeting and and other center out there on November twentieth nineteen fifty two which is documented even the military who was on the maneuvers and this is a project Bluebook reported that they too had seen a a UFO over desert center at the same time George identically reported it and it was in the Phoenix Gazette and the Oceanside blade reported as well and so it seems like a natural picks there are other people around the planet who had similar sightings of the damage your Coniston photos over two girls twin sisters in Norway lady in South Africa father any down there and Argentina spoke at any rate he ran the observatory down there he spoke very vividly about this father Gillam Papa New Guinea and Australia along with the students are crap covering their with people standing outside on the edge of the craft on the plans working on and they were waving to them and they waved back and so once again the and the multitude of of of reports and sightings in George's case he just was the most motivated to get out amongst the people and to inform and provide the material most of the times feel completely free of charge to whomever was interested and he thought that this this was our natural step in evolution to go out the space to interact with our extraterrestrial visitors and to move our planet away from war and disease and hunger and and these type of activities that we like to continue to this day because it it spurs our economy and stock markets and and these types of things did.

Another Prominent Conversion Therapy Centre Founder Has Come Out as Gay

"Did you guys hear about the leader of the ex gay conversion therapy movement who came out as this gay last week and apologized other gay people for the lies and the army done was that Oh no no no not not Michael Busey and Gary Cooper those homos almost co-founded Exodus International Nineteen seventy-six for decades exodus with the world's largest ex gay ministry but just three years after co founding it boosting Cooper came out what is gay and got married well. They got commitment ceremony which was the best idea at the time and apologized other gay people harm they done and the lies that they told was that no no. I'm not talking about Alan Chambers either. He was the last guy to exodus international became the president of the organization in two thousand and one and then shut the thing down twenty thirteen at which point he apologized to the gay people who've been harmed by exodus and admitted the conversion therapy doesn't work chambers didn't come out as gay but he did describe himself at the time is not straight but I wasn't talking about him and I wasn't talking about John. Smith either who was the former director of love and action and other ministry that tried to convert Gable Industry People Smid came out in two thousand eleven married to dude move to Texas and I'm not talking about John. Paulk the founder of loved one out to gay conversion therapy the program run by the Anti Gay hate group is on the family he came out as gay or came out as gay again in two thousand thirteen and I'm not talking about Ben Grisham. Jeremy Marks are Tim Rimal Anthony Van Brown or guenter bomb. All leaders of conversion therapy programs who've come out admitted their programs are ineffective and harmful apologized to the gay community no the former ex gay leader. We are talking about this week. The most recent high profile inductee into the ranks of the ex ex gays also known as the gays is mccray game. The man who founded hope for wholeness back in Nineteen Ninety nine conversion therapy is not just a lie but it's very harmful game told the post and courier baby game should Google Chambers or Paulk or any of the others who came up for him and game went on to say harmful because it is false advertising false advertising not only doesn't conversion therapy work as has the leaders of this crackpot movement reminded every single time they rub one out but it does real harm. Buonarroti people the kind of people these groups prey on have been driven to suicide game pokes mid Marks Chambers Busey Cooper ex gay leaders coming out as gay should really be a dog bites man story at this point joint and yet somehow it isn't people are still shocked shocked to learn that a man who dedicated his life to talking other people out of being gay was released secretly trying to talk himself out of it the whole time protect. Anyone tries to talk. You ought to be engaged actually trying to talk himself out of being gay and not having anymore success with himself that he's having with you but this just in the Washington Post reports that the ex gay Christianity movement is making a comeback. Some prominent Christians are quietly lightly trying to resurrect ex gay Christianity and the new incarnation is hip her and perhaps more evolved yet beneath the cosmetic tweaks sits the same message that has damaged inched many lives over many decades. You see the new X. Gay Movement isn't about being gay. It's not about converting anyone from homosexuality heterosexuality SWALEC. They've tried that and failed again and again and no one is buying that any more so they're evolving away from that the old ex gay movement put up billboards that said changes possible the ex gay movement according to The Washington Post has a new message changes possible and necessary Surrey but they're not going to try to make you straight the new ex gay movement isn't GonNa make you miserable by forcing you to pretend you're straight and happy about it. No the new next game movement is GONNA. Make you miserable by making you celebrate which they call leaving the lifestyle

"It should be. Hi, this is Greg I represent John Smith or Jane, Doe and. Here's what we believe to be the case. Here's what you believe to be the case, let's work towards resolution. Let's set up some deadlines if there's missing tax returns, let's get him filed some may be easier to file than others. And that's something that's quite a challenge. Because a lot of times our clients that are self employed or they have Lincoln business returns. The books are sometimes not complete. In fact, they're oftentimes incomplete so we have to go through and prepare twelve months worth of books to get to a tax return. I want to bring something up to that was actually very pleasant experience one of the files along those lines that been yell one of the Piel as that's been with me almost by the way, ten years. It'll be ten years next year. It's been here nine years, which is great and has been here almost a decade, but she's working una filed. The client happens to be a doctor really nice guy. The doctor himself has its own set of medical issues. Thank God nothing life threatening. But certainly enough to detour. Where you from time to time that he's not one hundred percents all the time healthwise, but a nice guy nonetheless, married child and still trying to be a husband still trying to be a father, and he's got his business, and he's got his share of IRS problems. Well, it's warmer CPA's sort of dumped him or basically never did anything and in order to get to years worth of tax returns done someone has to do bookkeeping. So imagine just the work involved in doing two years worth of bookkeeping, the time the money the interaction, and there's a lot of goes on there. So Danielle we stopped the revenue lobster and said, look, I want, you know, we're working on it. But right now, my clients, not even taking a paycheck. His wife is working. He doesn't want to give up his practice because of the patients and so forth, not taking a paycheck. So if he, you know, even if the business sort of profit he's entitled to take fair and equitable compensation. So more than likely the business would be deemed what's called in business. Non collectible. And then Yeltsin the Red Lobster, can you please give us some time because we have to do two years worth of bookkeeping in order to get to the tax return. So that Danielle and this revenue officer can adequately accurately analyze this particular businesses financial condition, but either way you're going to cut it the doctor if there is cash flow, which is a believe there is why would be taken to paycheck is entitled to a paycheck for his work. He's performing on a daily basis. So therefore that business very well may be deemed on collectible and revenue office said, you're right. I agree. You know, take your time, and you'll be reasonable keep in, touch and was very nice and very pleasant. Now, I'll give you the opposite side of that the other end of that spectrum or you can have a similar situation. No matter if it's a an oil change establishment car, repaired dodgers office instruction company, whatever it may be more moving company that supplies store. You name it. We've had just about every single client under the sun that you can ever imagine over the past twenty some years. Now, the Red Lobster may say. Giving the thirty days. I don't care. Your client has them filed in three years. I've had this case in my inventory for six months nine months one year. I I'm giving it thirty days. Sometimes it's even less than that. It's such a ridiculous expectation to think that the tax returns can get filed now mind, you it's also just as ridiculous that the client hasn't filed the tax returns. But we're coming into this in good faith. We're coming into this with a resolution oriented case approach. That's how my tire staff should be working every one of those files and how about while you're breath of fresh air. You're going to really encourage your client to come into compliance remain in compliance and accurately be able to display their curve financial condition, which is what the IRS revenue officer and the poverty. Ernie's job is to then try and take that data analyze it. And resolve it and the resolution exists not based upon what my. Snap. Once not make the pun with the IRS. It's based upon the numbers on the form, by the way. If anyone's listening knows what they're doing out there. It's called the fourth thirty three as an alpha or a b four three three B as in. Bravo. The as for an individual the B isn't problem with for a business. But without getting the books done without getting the tax returns done. Everyone's guessing as to the financial condition of the particular business in question, Greg when you were working at the IRS for your thirty two and a half years. Didn't you see that a lot where people one of the questions we always say to someone what's your income? And if they say, I don't know if you don't know, how do we know if we don't know how the IRS the no support that lead to sell back into? All right. The books need to be done. We have to do the books accurately, otherwise we're just simply never gonna get to a final and result. And oftentimes the client doesn't have the funds to pay for the book even to get done. And they don't have an accountant and they can't afford to have. Done in our office. We have bookkeepers we have the enrolled agents. The accountants we have the CPA did crop. We have two former IRS employees Claire coffee, and Greg Mahaffey and Greg and player between the two of you have over sixty years combined IRS experience, Greg when you had a client tax payer back, then he would call it. Or now, you have clients like that or have un-filed. How do you explain that to the IRS now representing a tax payer on the other side as a power of attorney? Again, it depends upon individual circumstances. I find out from the client, why get refile what caused them not to file is it's fairly a personal emergency. Or is that they were just so this organized being in business for themselves. They never kept any records. Maybe there's some other issues. Maybe there's a gambling problem. Maybe there was a drinking problem. Maybe there's a divorce I had to get into the heart of why didn't file why couldn't they pay. Why were they still in business if they were losing money year after year after year what what's going on at what would it take to fix it? And we had to arrive at the basic numbers. Like, you said he had to dig into the books we had to reestablish basic bookkeeping skills. They were a taxpayer ahead aid business. They had problems making the current deposits. Maybe they need a payroll provider to do it for them. Maybe they have problems trying to keep up with their accounts receivable, such as doctors offices billing medical they need to hire a billing company. Get him the help that they need. There's a lot of things that go on there. And and that's the way we try and approach it. I want to end the show as we come to the top of the hour giving a really nice example of of a resolution of client. That's had an ongoing struggle with his IRS issues. That literally owes over one point four million dollars. We were able to set him up into what's call it installment dream this is pretty recent too. By the way, I'm looking at the fact that came in from appeals April seventeenth, so it was Wednesday. But he owes me just get back to that screen here. Hang on everyone for a quick second. He okay. Over one point four million probably when you had an interest in penalties. That's probably one point five million, and he is very happy and he's able to put this behind him. And he was he got into what's called the PTA, which is a partial installment agreement. So he's paying what he can afford on paper for. Month to the IRS, and he's able to get what literally goes back over fourteen years of attacks problem behind him. And when I tell you this guy, he's a nice guy. He's a he's a father. He's got two kids. I think actually maybe three two kids, actually. And he's a he's a husband. He's got a lovely wife, and he just wants to get himself back on track. And he's been good by the way for the past two year two thousand seventeen two thousand eighteen no problems. So when he became a client we were able to get him cleaned up and into compliance, and he shouldn't have fall off that wagon. Again, if you have an IRS imagine how this guy's gonna feel going into the holiday weekend, by the way, happy Passover happy Easter to everyone who celebrating it's a holiday weekend. So why not ended on a nice note? Here's a guy that will literally a million four could be a million five and he's able to finally have peace in his life. And this is gone literally since two thousand and four if you haven't IRS issue, we're the best we're local we wanted to come on in the local addresses to eight. Eight one southbound highway. We're about a half a mile south Lynton on the east side of the street. We have the former IRS revenue officers we have the attorneys we have the e as all the function of Paul returns. You haven't filed a few years give us a call? If you had a knock at the door body IRS give us a call. There are solutions out there. So that you can sleep well at night, the resolution will come to you..

"The number one objective for John Smith is to win the national title. Sure. And as stacked as Penn State is they have very good chance of real off five in a row. And then having some having some guys have five championships in a row and having some guys place in the in the in the lower side, the backside Oklahoma state's the only other threat out there. I mean, you you've got you've got four guys that can win the national title for Oklahoma state. You can make a case for that. And then you've got your all Americans. So so how do you not get ahead of this way ahead of this and figure out? Okay. We we can't leave out a two-time division. One all American either one of them they gotta fit in that lineup, and it has to be a season-long process. And if Joe Joe didn't do the work that he was supposed to do then he disqualifies himself. I it's as simple as that, man. It's hard. I got I want to agree with you. I don't actually want to be different. Because I know where your hearts and your minds that in my heart. Is there in my mind is there, but it doesn't work that way. When there's only so many weight classes, look, you can't just figure it out. If one guy can't make the weight, you just can't go. Let's go the other way. Let's bump everybody up. Well, at some point you run into a brick wall there to and from what I'm told is Jacoby Smith could get it done at eighty four. Exactly. And I believe he would all American before. And he had a tremendous season at eighty four what I'm told as Coby at some point said, I'll play this one eighty four game all season at the big twelve I'm taking my spot. So bring on whoever you want. However you want, but I'm gonna stand my ground when the time comes which then pushed everybody back down. And now you're playing a game between fifty seven and sixty five with two athletes in two weights and neither one of them can make fifty seven. So now, you're at sixty five I don't actually fault anybody for that. I hear what you're saying about the planning and who knew how it was going to come down. I don't really think that anybody is wrong this situation. But you had said just to remind you of what we got on this that you would ask coach Smith. With did Chandler know, what time it was all year long? And I'm going to answer that question for is. What time it was meant? We saw this coming. What is the next best thing that you're going to hope for is it that Joe Jo- somehow bows out or becomes an eligible based on whatever the case may be. I mean, what what did you think was going to do y'all work out with each other every single day? You know, how you line up between you and Jacoby Joji. I mean, you just do do the math. And then maybe you gotta make the chain. Maybe I got a bulk all the way up to eighty four or maybe I can't I gotta sit and that is tough..

I would say goodbye just say you love your your anyway, you to interesting, I'm keeping you on. Oh, I said, thank you. I'm sorry. If it's a little wild here haven't been able to find a really, quiet. Don't worry don't worry about. Let me know. Let me remind everybody. I want to sell your book is that? Okay. Thank you. All right. I knew you'd agree. Fight you there. The politically incorrect guide to immigration another great politically correct guide. That's a whole series of books. This one is terrific. And. You have opened my eyes your point about the public service unions was was revelatory. I mean, it may. Go ahead. It's it's disturbing. Agencies grow. That's right intact. Family a blue collar workers able to bite her on tall, and it stayed home wives and kids go to college. Visit. Depend on bringing in broken families from Latin America. Basically, they they're running. They think creating jobs for glassmakers running around breaking all the the store window in England. Correct. Government agencies. Well, I would go further. I have said this I have written. And I have said this for decades the the in every arena of life. If there is health, it is bad for the Democrats and the left men and women get married and have children. They will vote Republican just that alone. It is in the Democrats individually feel one way or another is not my point, but the Democratic Party benefits from dysfunction, if a black says, I am lucky to be an American whites are not generally racist. That is that is terrible for the Democrats any any Rena of health is bad for the Democratic Party. Unfortunately. Legitimate idealism might have been at work in the nineteen sixties when they created the war on poverty, they were coming cost. They really were helping people, but it was clear about the mid seventies that they were hurting people and they didn't stop. I wanted to make a point earlier about Jesse Jackson in the seventies. He was pro-life. He called abortion black genocide which impact it is more black children are boarded in New York City born alive. Planned Parenthood puts his clinics in the ghetto for reasons 'cause it's founder Margaret Sanger, would you Genesis to work with Nazi racist. Genesis scientists she actually had Jackie working with one doctor who ran a concentration camp in Africa during World War once killing in experimenting on African she invited that guy for paper to speak at one of her concerts, Corey her eugenics laws were imposed in America and thirteen American states, basically sterilizing, and in some cases, castrating Americans who failed culturally biased. The Nazis used Planned Parenthood blogs has the model area Janik flaws and then in gratitude, they flew Harry offline one of Margaret Sanger postings associates to Germany and gave him an honorary Nazi degrees. So it is watching aside. But you know, what? Jesse Jackson changed his tune in nineteen eighty when he started to run for president. Okay. These are among the many important points. I talk to you about I wanna return directly to immigration talk to me. No, no, no. These are very fair points. And I raised I raised attention. Actually, I need to get the your explanation now of the child separation issue. Okay. That was very simple. Under the there's a ridiculous. Legal decree. The floors decrees, which does the children illegal immigrant children canopy health longer than three weeks. What year was that? What year was that decision? I think that was in the late ninety one was at the ninth circuit. Yeah. I think so. Okay. And. That means you're going to keep the families together. You can't you can't hold the adult illegal immigrants any longer than three weeks. It takes longer than three weeks to process a phony asylum claims that George Soros lawyers are teaching these people had a file and so having a child with you is a get out of jail free card, and what that means is that the trafficker cartel that can roll the Mexican border. There's taking children and selling them as get out of jail free card. Okay. Hold on there. This is really I want to continue to explain this to people. I'm gonna take Kohl's. Hey, everybody. Dennis Prager wanting to tell you about relief factor. This is a powerful little story. I've been on the road for a week. And I'm committed a mistake. I left my relief factor at home. Forgot forgot about it. Then about the third day started getting pain back in my right leg which had been operated of for a hip replacement last year. And I didn't put together. And then I did put together. My wife met me in the middle of the trip brought the relief factor. And there's no more pay. I mean, that's pretty dramatic. They have a quickstart programme in nineteen dollars and ninety five cents. They know you will know within three weeks, if it works that is a pretty honest thing. They don't drag you along. Now, you do have to tell them if you don't want to get automatic shipments at regular price. But most people obviously, do this is all available the quickstart. Programme at nineteen ninety-five available.

I'm jed Kim in for. Molly would. As facial recognition software spreads it brings the challenge of diversity along with it so far programs identify male white faces far more accurately than they do. Black women. For example, a new IBM project aims to change that diversity and faces is a data set of a million phases. Poll from public domain pictures on flicker it gives computers a lot more to look at in process and introduces a way to better measure diversity in faces. John r Smith is an IBM fellow and lead scientist of diversity and faces. He says there's nothing else like this. This is a first effort we are aware of which is an annotated data set is typically aimed at studying diversity faces. There are many data sets that have been developed which are used for training. When we looked at those. We saw tremendous skews so not balanced. Gender not balanced in skin color. So the data sets that are out there. Just are not what we really need to understand the space when you say diversity, how are you thinking of diversity when it comes to faces because I think a lot of people are going to hear the term, and they're going to think of it along like race and gender lines. Yes, we do mean that but we mean more than that. So what we're aiming at here's to get one level beneath that because we need the computer to be able to work and a space of more objective measures of the face things. Like craniofacial features badgers of distances and areas in ratios. We have annotations of facial. Contrast facial symmetry? This is the way it can work to ensure we have a better coverage of the full space of diversity of the data that we're using for training. And so on. So let's say I am a research scientist outside of IBM. Can you give me an example of how one of the ways I might use this? Yes. So one of the things that we've done with his data set. Release is we implemented? Ten what we call facial coding schemes. And we went back to some of the strongest work in this field. The most cited work that was aimed at characterizing human faces in different ways. We would love to see other researchers developed method number eleven or eleven to twenty two have sort of this core set of images, which is reasonably large with it gives us a common foundation in a basis for which we can compare different ideas. So we can really get to the core of the challenge, which is how do we measure diversity of the whole spectrum of human faces? John Smith helped develop diversity in faces at IBM. The data is free for researchers to use. Who's a realized facial recognition gives a lot of people that he GB's. It's why I didn't get the iphone X which can use your face to unlock.

"You know, I I have to play Ashton Kutcher and his response on on pro-life being pro-life. I haven't heard this yet. But this was probably the biggest video in America yesterday when it comes to politics, here's a Ashton Kutcher, though, you don't have it. Oh, I thought he sent it in earlier today. Well, saving get it. Because I wanna I wanna play at once before we before we leave. So maybe we can do that at the end of the hour. Got a lot of stuff 'cause Monday were doing a show on abortions. So I have a lot of stuff on colonial Merican abortions wishes only interesting to really people like you. And I'm I'm intrigued by that. Because kind of what we what we designate is is moral and immoral what we designate his legal and illegal those change over time. And I'm curious to what a colonial Americans thought, colonial Americans thought that. Colonial Americans thought that abortion after what was called the quickening, which is in in the was it the the Highlander that's all the immortals come together. Team term abortion terrible. Yeah. No. That's not it. The quickening is when you can feel the baby move inside woman. But it was interesting. The first abortion trial happened under John Smith, remember, John Smith and Pocahontas. So the first one happened with John Smith, and he had to decide the innocence or guilt of this individual. And it was let me see if I can find it. The deposition came in from dorks Howard up poor dorks Howard. I already feel really whoever this person is. I feel sorry for I don't imagine that an easy childhood. Yeah. No. It was a woman to orcas store. You're like, oh, you guys doing just go with Susan Susan's a finance dorks. So anyway, she was an unmarried servant and the thing I've found in the research yesterday was that most of the women that had abortions not all but most of the women who had abortions were servants in the house. They were white, but they were servants in the house, and because, you know, not slave servants. But what do you call injured servants? So they would get together and miss Howard was an unmarried servant, and she was arrested after she gave birth in secret to a son, and what she did was really quite horrible to this to this kid. But the people that went to jail, according to John Smith's decision was not only for her. But the guy who fathered the child also went to jail, and then there's a there's a few things one. One woman was executed. Because she killed her her child. The most of them really happened when it was a man raping or or taking a servant in having his way. And then they couldn't get married, but it was interesting to me was a lot of them went to trial, and they were both punished for whatever. And then they ended up marrying each other. The crisis. Brought them together. Emotionally, this has been tough where the scarlet letters. I really have got to know you a lot better dorks. I get hitched. I don't know. But what was interesting to me? Also was that? It wasn't just on the women. You think oh, well, it was just the women. No. A lot of times the women. Now, remember, we're talking sixteen hundreds the women were whipped. And the men were whipped for adultery. But it was the man who ended up serving time or getting the punishment for the abortion. So so would they was it. Permissible to get an abortion. If it was out of wedlock. Is that what I'm getting or they were trying to do it in the colonial. Is we go? You can't do that. You can't do that. I don't care if you're married or not married. Okay. Hint. Kill your child. And so that's that's that's where they were. And it looks like I mean, maybe we can maybe we can just go back to I have a I have a warrant for the arrest of a woman named Anna tracks Pratt ski Trotsky, turn trots Trasco. I think I can't remember her last name. But a woman she was in Salem, and she was part of the Salem witch trials, and she was a witch because she became pregnant without the help of a man. That was her. Oh, I'm gonna get in trouble for this one. I'm going to clamp. I'll just say a witch that no one will think of a hussy is. Yeah. Back phase that had that started. Yeah. Well, I mean, we all know, that's how all babies without a husband witchcraft. I I used to live in Scotland. And there's if you go to the castle esplanade, there's this placard that it's dedicated to which is that were burned in the thin and a miniature golf TV or anything. So they need hobbies burn witches bright. And there's this. It says, you know, many of the women that were burned here. We're not bad, which is good witches. I'm like, none of them were witches. What's wrong with you? Witches? Eighteen eighty they put him in charge of this were they they would the Scots would they if you're a witch they would three on trial by the throw you into nor Loch which was the to the septic drainage ditch next to the castle. And if you sank which was unlikely with the way sewage works that meant you were fine and they'd run into politics. Literature your family, if you if you didn't sank because of you know, we're buoyant that met the devil was underneath you holding you up which point they burn you the steak, and this is the nasty part. This is the Scottish bet they would charge your family for the firewood Bill just to like really stick it to you. Yes. Were they were how did you? I mean, is it a chance you were raised a witch? I'm in his family fully possible. Yeah. I could see now I think I I'm descended pretty much entirely from rodeo clowns and rodeo, clowns and horse thieves. I don't think anybody witchcraft in the family. No, I didn't mean to you personally. I didn't know I mean because as we learned from the documentary in the nineteen sixties bewitched. Yeah. Runs in the family. That's true. So could be my mom on that yet. I think we're okay there. Yeah. They they all sorts of weird witchcraft thing and in history that were and it seems to be a recurring thing. Like, there seems to be an instinct for human beings to go which you went in England, I learned this recently witchcraft was not considered necessarily satanic up until maybe seventeen hundred. So if you go back to if you're traveling and you go back to fourteen eighty England like there's witchcraft, but it's almost seen as like a kind of like, the the evil eye where it's almost like a like a magical skill you possess, but it's not necessarily with the dark arts. So I almost bought this piece in this the one thing I regret that. I was offered in as a historic peace that I didn't buy it was too expensive at the time. And now, I do anything to get it. It was a bowl a magic bowl that the Jewish society back in the times.
