Success is a Mindset
"Say what's up to fire nation and what is something that you believe about becoming successful that most people disagree with. Hey john yeah well first off. Thanks so much for having me on today. I'm super excited to dive into today's episode And yes something that. Most people overlook when it comes to becoming successful I would say mindset. And and the reason i to say this is because we hear so much right. You're you know it's who you surround yourself with a two year mentors are. It's kind of sometimes lack of the cards. Your strategy here. A lot about that and all. That stuff is absolutely Accurate but nonetheless i think your mindset is so crucial and here's why right is that your mindset naturally when you decide. I'm going to become an entrepreneur when you take that leap. I'm leaving my nine to five job. You are instantly in the one percent. And i'm talking not one percent of the wealthy. You know maybe perhaps on your way but you're instantly in one percent in the sense that you are going against the grain of society right. Society is teaching us. Go go to get good grades. Go to good college. Get a good job. Save for retirement all of those types of things and as soon as you decide. No i'm gonna go and beat that one percent of decisive to create something to be an entrepreneur to build a business to impact people as soon as you decide to do that. You're going against ev. All the programming in the world. You're going against what what is taught to us as a culture and and so it's going to be
Will the Lawsuits Against Watson Stall 1st-Round Picks?
"At this point. There have been thirteen civil lawsuits. I think got it is literally not trying to make light of its changing by the hour. Sarah barshop covers. The texans for us is constantly reporting these new lawsuits alleging sexual harassment. Or in some cases. Assault against the shawn watson I have just been sitting back waiting for the news to come in reading the suits. Watson's lawyers have not responded in full yet. I think there's going to be much more like a. We're going to get not just more information. But also kind of someone kind of synthesizing all of this and explaining what it means for watson and i'm not talking about football just like what it means for his future in and what it means for these women forward i like. I'm not i haven't been doing this. Just been kind of going with the news and waiting for it. All of this. As like. I find i have found the discourse on it already to be incredibly toxic and dispiriting and the whole story. It's very sad in. It is definitely it also coming at this crazy moment. Where if this like literally a week ago. You and i probably on shows talking about. Will this team's going to do this. And this team that we just don't know now. So i just like i have no idea how this is going to play out. Not just for the accusers for him. But all any of the teams involved in this including houston. It is a black box at the moment for me john. Yeah and and. I think that you handled the non-football element of this extremely well. And i echo ditto everything that you said from. And so i'll have to say that. That exact thing that you just said way better than i could but i will take it to a football to a trade element side because it was what we were all talking about with the dak prescott contract for so long now because we both sorta gone silent as we all were sitting back watching not having take about it as we're trying to figure out and and synthesize everything It makes it extremely difficult based on volume and the details in the allegations for any team to trade what would be equivalent to four first picks Because i if you do that right now you're saying to your fans because there's no way that you can properly investigate a dozen claims If you if you go to shawn watson this week and so you're saying well we we investigated and we all know that that's why Or you're also saying what we didn't investigate and we don't care and you can't do that and And so there's it's a holding pattern right now And obviously role in the real world realized stuff is what's most important here but it had. It was such a gigantic. nfl story. Whereas the shawn watson gonna land one with the jay leno panthers give up and now it sort of disappeared. And i do think that we do have to sort of touch on it and say no one can do anything right

Putin adversary Navalny was poisoned, German medical team concludes
"The Berlin hospital Sharat treating the seriously ill Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny says he appears to have been poisoned The statement from the hospital Clinical evidence suggests an intoxication for a substance belonging to the group of Kyle Aloneness draw star ASI inhibitors, But doctors who treated him in Russia say the substance was not present. Mr Navalny fell ill on an internal flight in Russia on Thursday. Paul a very good evening to you. The headline from BBC is cautious about Navalny's. Certainly there is Logic to the fact that he was poisoned. You explicate that in your hill piece about the pattern in Russia. What do we know now, about the substance that they found in his body that the Russians say is not there And the Germans say is good evening to you. Good evening, John. Yeah, You and I are both reading from the official press release of charity. And although the languages muted their very clear that they did find this variant of sarin poisoning in his body. Um Moscow is saying, Whom are we to believe? Are good Doctors in in ER didn't find such poison in his body. So there must be something wrong in Germany. That's the official Kremlin line right now. I understand. He was on a flight from in Siberia from Tom's for Omsk. And then several days later, after the offer by Macron of France and Miracle of Germany, he was thrown out of Russia and to this hospital in Berlin. You're a piece in the Hill, though, is helpful, not just in background of who is navalny and wise in trouble, but also the pattern. You name Politkovskaya and names off and then we should also mention Lynn Finance Co. All of them. Either poisoned or brought down by gunfire. Notable opposition to Vladimir Putin or to the Kremlin general is Is this a personal opposition to Putin? Or is it to the whole apparatus ball? Um Navalny has been known for quite a while as the top opposition figure in Russia, particularly after the assassination of Borys himself. So he's practically the last standing, um, opposition figure to Putin. Uh, he himself is not able to run for office because He was convicted on some trumped up charge of corruption and as such, he could not himself. Hub. Be an elected official. But his strategy which Putin was quite worried about was organizing, Um opposition candidates picking the best shot to compete in elections and so forth. Ah, and this activity um some suspect including myself. Ah worried Putin because of his declining writings and the ability of his candidates to win in these regional elections, So it's a fairly complicated story. The other targets of what looked to be a political assassination puller Politkovskaya, As I recall, she was a journalist working on the allegation that Mr Putin had been connected in some fashion. To the destruction of of residents in Moscow that led to a great number of deaths that at the time this involved the Chechen war. Nemtsov was associated with opposition to Putin, as well in lynchpin in co was living in London at the time working for an oligarch who had fled and he was poisoned. Famously with a horrible Ah, horrible radiation poison. So my pattern looks to be that someone's running this Paul are the is this Is this just a piece of the larger story of how politics has done in Russia that you kill people is well, a cz defeat them at the polls. Well, killing opponents is nothing new to Putin's Russia. The list he went through our only the most prominent ones. One can put together a list of 10 15 Mohr. Ah, in fact, um Russia, I believe is the second most dangerous place in the world for reporters. So if you look at all of the cases that you mentioned, you can come up with a reason why Putin was worried about him why he needed to eliminate him. So the big problem in the West, however, is that Although we know that such things do not take place without the approval from the highest levels. This cannot be proven in a court of law. So if you look at the little opinion could case and another case, there's also this script Paul case where they A father and daughter survived. The courts come down with convictions. Or the actual killers who are safe back in Russia. And then they say, well, likely this could not have happened. Without approval from the highest levels, but they can't Use that, um, insight to convict Putin. So, So far, Putin has survived all these assassinations. Quite well, I would say. My measure of Mr Putin is that he has arranged the Constitution so that he has atleast another two terms. Ah, that would make the opposition to Putin self destructive, wouldn't it, Paul? I mean, are we looking at people who are Destroyed by a machine that is dominant and and not showing any weaknesses. Well, Putin is showing weaknesses and this may be may explain the timing of the of the attempted killing of of the volunteer. By the way, the plan Clearly was he was going to get on that airplane in Tom's fly nonstop to Moscow, which is around the 45 hour plus of flight, and he would not have survived that flight. So the fact the plane Did this landing emergency landing in all saved his life. And so were it. Not for that he would be he would be dead, but Putin is showing distinct signs of weakness. Um, the, uh, demonstrations in a bottle. Car Ongoing They're not diminishing. By the way. The what The demonstrators were shouting Now in a bottle is Mr Putin. We invite you to tea. Which is quite telling, uh so it was. It was T that was a suspect for having poisoned Navalny and was T that poison Litvinenko as well in mass in London. Yeah, it's important to add that for them for the listeners, Uh, so he has the problems in a bottle. Which could be a spark, which could set off the entire far east of the Russian republic. He has the problems in Belarus, uh, which Navalny was contributing to, um, which is very much like a color revolution, which is Putin's biggest fare for himself that he will be thrown out by, uh um, demonstration said reached the hundreds of thousands So Putin is not in a good position right now. And there was this fear that he could actually start losing control of regional legislatures.
The Trump Administration's Policies in Afghanistan and Africa
"The foundation for the Defense of Democracies. He's a senior fellow keeps the Long word journal with Tom Johnson and his colleagues. We go immediately to Afghanistan because here during the Republican convention We want to explicate what we can of the Republican intention if it is successful, winning a second term for President Trump and then to remark upon thee. Trump administration's policies in Africa, particularly when it comes to the kind of length organization Al Shabaab on the attack. Billa Very good evening to Afghanistan, you and Tom for many weeks and months now. Have illustrated that the trump policy from the first term was to make a deal with the Taliban and withdraw as much of the American presidents as possible. And hope for the best. I do not expect the Republicans toe have another direction is your sense bill that the military is quit with Afghanistan? As much as the political apparatus is quit, are there of two minds here? Good evening to you, Bill. Good evening, John. Yes. So I agree with you. The Trump Administration is not going to change policy in Afghanistan, Um, barring some type of major events. Um, it's it's just both sides of the aisle are pushing the end The endless wars narrative, which, of course is ridiculous, because the jihadists have a say, and they're going to keep fighting when we leave, of course. We could. You could say something like we wantto end our involvement in these wars. Fine, But the wars will continue our enemies get a vote, and they're nowhere near tired of fighting. The U. S. First the U. S military goes for Afghanistan. Give US military as a whole. Once out of Afghanistan, it's been a drain on their resource is on their energy. Um, I don't. I think they don't see an end. There. They feel again. I'm not speaking for the entire military. And this was the sense I get from millet, you know, from top military leaders. Who have basically signed on signed off on this policy. There's been no objection publicly to this policy of, uh, negotiating with the Taliban and cutting a deal with them, even though they support Al Qaeda. In the meantime, the Taliban and there is Taliban Afghanistan. In several iterations, there's Taliban, Pakistan and several generations the Taliban is preparing for Nearly triumph, but rule I follow from your posting at long word general that Tariq eat Taliban. Pakistan is congratulating the Muslim UMA in general and the Mujahideen in particular on the merger of the two main groups of jihad in Pakistan. Can we regard this as a temporary merger because and they'll be back to fighting over cities or is there some collective push now for the Pakistan, Taliban and the Afghanistan Taliban to work together? So I think there's a push for the Pakistani Taliban in the Afghan Taliban already work close together, Um they Pakistani Taliban fighters have refocused their efforts to Afghanistan. After Pakistani military operations against them. Remember the Pakistanis play a double game? You're You're a good jihadist If you fight in Afghanistan are cashmere, but you're bad jihadists in the fight against the Pakistani state. So this merger that came up really? I found a little surprising because I could point back to a statement in 2015, where the one of the two groups of it's called One of them's Hezbollah, Har. Um, you know, so it had announced that it already merged with the movement of the calibre, or should I say there were ties broken during the turmoil back in 14 4015 with Mullah Omar staffed and when Melissa was alone took over the Pakistani Taliban. Ah, lot of inside baseball, but I won't go into but they had already announced that they had reunited, so something has happened here. Within the last five years. I think this is really sort of There was probably some kind of personality dispute, and I think a lot of this is for propaganda anyway. Really, to just say, hey, look, we're all unified. We're all going to, you know, operate under the same command when I think essentially they were doing the same thing. I go to Africa because you are a U is a long word General have resource is to cover the story of Al Shabaab. We spoke recently of their surprisingly professional looking videos of their recruiting on their training. Now we have a report from long word general of Al Shabaab on the attack hotel military base suicide assault, reminding me that this is a very sophisticated outfit trained with Al Qaeda, Sze Ah complex attacks as Al Shabaab growing and strength to your measure, it does the next Trump administration need to pour more resource is or get out as well. Yes. Oh, Africa has always been fascinating, particularly Somalia. I think some outside of the Taliban Shabbab is the most effective jihadist insurgency in the world. They have They continually take the fight to the rump some Somali government they control 25% of the country despite the fact that you have the African Union and the US and what they could piece together the Somali military and police. To oppose them, and they're there have very good propaganda. As you noted, It's improved a lot over the years and there are very effective at conducting their attacks and keeping their their fighters. Trained and keeping them in the rank and file. Remember, there's been an attempt by the Islamic state to poach from Shabaab, but it's been largely unsuccessful. Not only did they have they conducted major attacks on military bases and hotels, yet another town this one outside of the town of Baidoa, which eyes in sorry the city. If I go, it's probably the second largest city in southern Somalia. Um they took over the town after the Somali military withdrew in the Somali military withdrew from that town because Shabaab was besieging it, so I think Um, I always reluctant to say they're growing in strength. Thes groups have sort of There's an Evan flow to the fighting, and sometimes particularly went outside groups. When the African Union and the US start piling on them. They have some issues, but they're able to await it out. That's the one thing these John, one of the several things that they have. To their advantage. They have the time. You know, that old saying goes, we have all the clocks, but they have all the time While they're very patient in their fight. They're very patient in their jihad. While we have men may have sophisticated military equipment, that's the clocks. They have the time and patients in the will to fight these battles, not enough terms of the US election cycles but in terms of decades Built in general. Now we're at the crossroads for another administration, either, Mr Trump second. Mr Biden's first. Is there any indication pattern worldwide that Al Qaeda is waiting for that decision, or are they staying on the offensive? Matt, no matter who wins. Yeah, I think there are on the offensive. No matter who wins. They do follow the political situation here, but I think they've come to the conclusion that this is just my opinion here. But I think they've come to the conclusion that it doesn't really matter again that end the endless wars narrative and and the actions by the U. S government over two successive administrations. Policies of withdrawn, scaled down and whatnot would look to us is withdrawing troops from Iraq. It just closed that the major based ontology or at least US personnel being at that base. Almost 2000 troops are coming out of there. Um, they see this all and nature there taking it all in, and they realized that the end of our fight in administration is not going to counter act. These measures. Bill Rocha

"Is he referring to himself in school, So he's changed a little bit. Celebrity has changed him, But I'm sure if we were to get back out there in front of the house and some mannish and I just, you know, you know, I I end up doing the couple of shots in a couple of shots will crumble. Something something I go up. I go up there with the wrong foot on a layup, and he has never see that comment. So okay. Well, they know John is that celebrity has not changed you at all that, you know, Thank you Appreciate that. Yeah, He is, by the way, not much on offense, Great on defense, and he is doing really well and everything that I taught him, and that's simply what you end up with. Well, I'll say this John Curly School of basketball Well, speaking of cool people, there's this guy by the name of Russell Wilson. He's pretty cool, right? Rest. Eyes caught him. Hold on, Jacob. What did I say that Russell? Okay, So you're going to get to the fact that Russell Wilson is what's he doubt saying Or people are saying about Russell Wilson? What do they want him to do? They want him to cook right? So cook for those who don't know in the hood. That's when we want you to go to work when we want you to let my turn him loose. We say let that man cook. So there is a tweet out there. There's a hashtag Let rust could let that man cook out there and, honestly, Russell's kind of leaning into it, he says. He's like the few tweets liked. If you posts around it, I want to know. Are you a Hawks fan? John? Yes. Okay, so as ah Hawks fan, what do you think? Do you think we should let should we turn? Let Russ lucid not hand the ball to Carson all the time, or are you like now, let's keep with this ground and pound should not. I am a Hawks fan, because my son is a crazy Seahawks fan. So bye bye relationship in the Hawks fan, Although I'm from Philadelphia, Summon Eagles fan, but That was, Reid would always say it's 3/4 of running an offense. It doesn't work. And then in the fourth quarter when they're down by 17 they go Oh my God. Let Russell Wilson run around and make a play. So why not do it earlier? If it works in the fourth quarter, and he has to bring us back from a deficit, let him go early. It all depends on what the system ends up looking like, but anything that makes it the funniest thing that this is from. With the name of that every year. What's the name of that website that does? Your team sucks? What is that one Jacobo. It's deadspin, which is basically right now, but it's not there anymore, but the one of the funniest things they said Russell Wilson is lot is a lot like Tom Cruise. He's only interested when he's running around. You know, I you know, I honestly at face value. I would agree with this, but I'm taking the other side of the friends. I actually believe Russ has more than enough time to cook. I watched this man play and honestly, I don't think it's the system only. I think it's him. Rust doesn't come to play until you down 14. I don't feel like we change a whole lot. It'll be in the first quarter. It'll be third and five. Russ is going to consistently throughout the 3rd 3 toe a guy underneath and I'm like, yo. Why would you do that? The guy gets tackled. We don't get a first down. It's three and out. I'm sorry. Uh, no. Don't let Russ.
Magic Johnson makes admission about his Twitter account
"Johnson the great magic Johnson, either has the best or worst account on NBA twitter terrible with almost no inbetween. gator would agree as someone who's name is escaping me. One said magic tweets like someone who thinks they're the only one with television, providing the most lukewarm takes and updates possible to everyone without a TV usually a day, or so after whatever he's tweeting. tweeting about happen, that's pretty good. That's actually pretty pretty spot on why he loved tweeting. And what are essentially ESPN? APP push alerts so much. Is that why he wanted to step down from running the Lakers as an endlessly fascinating question s for the people are really fixated on this. As the writer of this story writes, it turns out. It gets even more interesting because apparently magic isn't even the ones sending his own tweets as he. He revealed to Rob Lowe at a truly bizarre exchange. Why wouldn't rob lowe and Magic Johnson have a conversation about this an appearance on Rob Pelinka's lookalike podcast. I didn't Rob Pelinka look like Rob Lowe Rob Lowe rights or said Dino. Pardon my take their podcast. Those guys are huge fans as you know. And I said Look, you're the best boards podcast GonNa be interviewing magic. He's going to be one of my first guest you. You of new questions. You have any thoughts blah. Blah Blah Blah Blah I don't know I have somebody right out my tweets I. Tell them what I wanted to say, and they write them down. That's actually what Kuhn did for you. John. Yeah yeah, exact, exact, same thing, so yeah I can see it four point nine million followers. He has on twitter I. Don't think follow Magic Johnson, because he's so milk milk toast, so here's the thing. I have learned and I. I agree with this take that a lot of celebrities athletes. They don't want to be on social media. They understand that it can ruin their careers, but it becomes part of deals that they signed with sponsors, and all this other stuff that they need to be promoting their brands on social media, so if you really are worried about yourself, messing up on social media, but you're being forced to buy some contract that you signed to make a bunch of money promoting something then I. Guess that's a good solution.

Madam Mayor is the city ready for the weekend? Because historically, this is a bad one. This has got to be an all hands on deck approach to community. It's not just on the police department, not just on the fire department, not just on elected officials..

"John Batchelor show good evening I welcome congressman Devin Nunes twenty two California's San Joaquin Valley the bread and fruit basket of America to comment on his podcast which is extremely popular because Devin is learn to move to subject to not stay with one version of the world and right now he's moved to examining the big tech the fangs the stuff that makes all the money in Californian pays all the taxes you know them Facebook Amazon apple Google and Devon is approached in this way by talking to an author a new author Peter Howson the book is the manipulators Facebook Google Twitter and big tex war on conservatives this is a podcast interview that Stephens done I recommended I looked to reading the book and talk to the author and future but Devon's ahead of me congressman a very good evening to you your point of view is informed by your unhappy experience with big tech and especially conservative points of view what does Mr Hassen say about the willingness of big tech to censor the Republican Party good evening to you thanks John yeah he writes about what I call the tech oligarchs and their continued ability to to develop content and to control what the average American is seen so this is one of the first books that that I've seen that actually goes into and and name specifically the problems with Facebook the problems with Twitter the problems with Google and how dangerous this can be and how they they tend to always target conservative ideas or beliefs so it's bad enough that you've got state run media in this country ninety percent of the content being developed is being developed for the Democratic Party and in favor of the Democratic Party when you run it through the filter of the tech oligarchs are you end up with god knows how people are making up their mind in their decisions you know if you're someone who doesn't really pay close attention to politics and doesn't listen to your show or podcast or or watch you know get any type of of independent news I mean my god it's scary to to to know what you would thank you you you believe that the pee tape and and the Moscow prostitutes are all real do you believe in the Clinton that paid for dossier it's incredible there's a special language for what we assume and sometimes is admitted to going on is something called shadow banning what is that seven well what happened to me and others couple years ago is that people weren't able it like you would see my tweet John all right our and maybe re tweeted out about everybody else couldn't see it so so what they were doing was they were limit who can see my tweets and so you can imagine no I don't know how long they did it for it's you know I am suing Twitter and I'd like to find that out that's one of the things we want to try to learn and discovery is you know how long was I actually shadow banned while they were negligently operating their platform and allowing people to attack me and my family and everybody else with defamatory comment I mean they knowingly did it and you know once again Twitter you know if it's a you know even if it's a real the account against the Democrat the account goes down you know but yet defamatory accounts that are beyond parity stay up against conservatives it's quite it's quite amazing and they continue to get away with it and the I don't know what the board of Twitter I mean we know that the CEO Twitter is is it is a left wing hack Mister Dorsey who makes out remarks now and again he made one this week that that Twitter people are never coming back to the office are going to do everything remotely is it is a very odd person even for a billionaire yeah and it's it's odd you know with such a such a great tool you think you just want to keep the public square wide open and not get into the content content development arena but but they have been in there they're doing it more and more you've seen it a lot during this call that crisis we talked about this on the podcast that where a local television station went into a San Joaquin Valley doctors too who held a press conference and they recorded the whole thing and put it out on YouTube in essentially these were doctors who said look we've given out five thousand tests we believe that the government I was doing the right thing that we need to get our handle on what was happening with the virus and but now we think that everybody needs to go back to work they they took it down Google took it down you can't find it anymore it's gone to go back to work back to work yeah all right let's let's talk about going back to work because you're in California and there's been much in the news about going back to work this week Mr Mr musk who is innovative that's the understatement once his workforce to go back to work in the governor says no so Mr musk who's a billionaire in addition to being innovative says we're going back to work you can arrest me are the last I checked the governor back down now is this concierge service for the richest W. or are the barbers and salon keepers going to go back to work to I haven't heard that term the concierge service that looked at the effectively what it is though John we talked a few weeks ago about the mayor of San Diego Kevin stop there he's looking at running against the governor Newsom he's a Republican mayor of San Diego he stood up to the governor few weeks ago and said like hell you're going to close our beaches in San Diego so some beaches were open somewhere not so it all depends on who the governor and his people feel threatened by date yes at the same time I think that's exactly right you line wise you know I'm I'm I'm proud to be on us coming up with a good plan to get people back to work safely I forgot to take he's already in California which is a tough place to do business but he's got a complete compete with countries like South Korea that a great car make car makers of Japan great car makers other other states worth a whole lot easier to do business and make cars in the United States and he you know he elected to to be in California but I think he's having second thoughts so he he stood up to the governor and of course and the and the county leaders they let him open up I'm proud that they let him open up but as you said there's a whole bunch of other businesses that are still closed including businesses in that same county so yeah this is just the the picking of winners and losers as or as you said a concierge service by the governor that's you know going back to the old politburo the old communist Soviet system Chinese Communist Party system where the politicians control everything and they're essentially become dictators were they run the state controlled media and they decide what businesses get to work and those that do not and the end it doesn't usually make for a thriving economy or a thriving democracy I want to be I want to be local here how does the economy look in the San Joaquin Valley in your district in a neighboring districts is it RP and people were never not at work because your your for a food producer but is there is there a moment where things are looking brighter Devin or is it still gloomy well I mean we would be right out a lot of our economy is an agricultural economy so that sector of the economy continues to get to work to work however you do have largest cities like the city of president which is the sixth largest city in California a half a million people so so yeah they're largely ag based but they're so big that they have a lot of other businesses that are in Fresno and they remain close so it's been very frustrating I think specially if you you talk to a lot of the the white table restaurants that have no real way to do take out they're very concerned so I think you're gonna start to see if the restaurant don't open back up in the smaller the smaller shops you know like we had a a local furniture guy who said Hey if you go by furniture cosco how come I can't you can't come into my store and be you know at least by appointment only so yeah people are starting to question how the socialist policies of the politicians are impacting yes some in good ways and some others are not so good ways and it's really really hurting them so so there are a lot of people that are being damaged by this John and and look at it it's gonna be interesting to see if they hold the Democrats in the state run media accountable at the end all right and just a moment then about the surprise or did not surprise victory in twenty fifth California by Mr Garcia were you expecting that to happen there the Republican representatives in California winning back I see that you lost in eighteen well what's interesting about that seat is that that was a traditionally Republican seat right but when they registered everybody to vote with their driver's license and started mailing out ballots it really gave the Democrats about a five to eight point boost across all the all the districts across the state so that district which was a Republican seat really became a toss up C. and remains a possibility the irony of this one though was that that they even tried to cheat at the end remember how they were saying no no we got to go to all absentee voting well last minute they changed it opened up a book bunch of polling places even with that the Republican ended up getting more votes when they open up the polling places and then the the ballot harvesting because their pain so many people to stay home and unemployment benefits are so high they couldn't get anybody to go out and harvest the ballots so so it was a big victory for the Republicans there and look it's all going to come down to can Republicans six actually harvest ballots in the fall and that's that's gonna be the key to winning any seats back but Republicans had a had a great night in California with a picked up a national seat and a state Senate seat Devin newness representative Devin newness twenty two California he is also the ranking member of the house intelligence committee and when we come back we're going to turn to events of twenty seventeen to twenty eighteen most importantly the revelations by the acting dat the acting director of national intelligence these last days Richard Grinnell points to the conduct when Devon was the chairman of house intelligence committee this story has much to go but we're going to preview what we know right now entice them ends together about the revelations of russiagate twenty sixteen twenty seventeen I'm John bachelor this is the John Batchelor show.
"john yeah" Discussed on 77WABC Radio
"Seventy seven WABC at you know a little on the light side said they gonna have a a concert believe it or not on Sunday night on fox the but big box channels the broadcast channel the living room concert for America's gonna be hosted by Elton John it's weird it is going to host a show but he's not going to play and the reason why Elton John is not going to play you're not gonna believe this folks is he doesn't have the right equipment hi John yeah really does have a a piano in is is California home how is that possible I I have no idea come on you put it in John's name on the concert he needs to perform this is in the sport of course of what form made in life be just got coronavirus aid same type of thing but I've got some great acts showing up on Sunday you got let's see Alicia keys Backstreet boys Mariah Carey Tim McGraw all of them going to be performing from their own homes yeah which a lot of the artists are doing these days you see a lot of that stuff on Instagram etcetera lightening things up all the stay home you know I'll give an example that done tonight for example Bernie might my wife Danielle her best friend page is celebrating a very big birthday tonight very big birthday and though plans for a very big party they're going to meet she was on the Upper East Side needless to say the party's canceled obviously so what they're doing tonight is something that they don't I did last night we had a teleconference on this particular website for my son's charity for this proxy so literally Hopman pages having a birthday party tonight on zoom how will storm has been doing his show from yes so then you know it's going to be in in our living room and and her friend Blake is going to be in her living room and she's gonna have about ten to twenty point celebrating her birthday in their own homes on zoom later on tonight as we probably discussed before here on the on this show social media I am the much maligned social media can actually in this day and age right now be an asset because it actually saw what you know but not to let somebody social media is actually a vehicle to get together like social social media told more of like Instagram twelve yeah yeah but have you know your computer whatever Instagram all of those things they all help you know I'll be texting with each other just face booking Twitter all that's the key if it makes you feel connected but you got to be careful because but while that is true then you don't want to just cut off the rest of the world and just be with your husband or your boyfriend and your kids it also gets to the level where it gets a little insane what next thing you know you're on the phone for five hours because once you feel this need to connect then you're texting all your friends and facetiming all your friends and then it becomes a bit of an issue so there's a this kind of a fine line yes you have to balance take it easy get out and take a run right take a run spend some time with your significant other when your kids do not want that then our hope of doing stuff on on Facebook or or Twitter Instagram but other people fall into the trap up there on the phone for five or six hours and that's not good either no that is not good and then speaking of you know self isolating quarantining the plug governor Cuomo actually said yesterday that quarantining may not it may have backfired he actually said that why because he did it the wrong way what what he's what he meant was not the whole social distancing pointy thing what he meant was they actually quarantine young people with the old people and not infected and actually killed older people so in that respect it backfired but not the whole idea of quarantine in that respect and that's a big respect young people then quarantine with older people it was probably not the best public health strategy the younger people could have been exposing the older people to an infection so that we should have focused as he said and has a lot of people have said we focused on the the vulnerable the elderly the people compromise conditions we should have focused on them instead of telling everybody to stay in the same place shelter in place but this day but it's essentially though that strategy still continues I mean I haven't changed it not even close but that's what skin with doctor Burke's actually if you really listen carefully to her yesterday she almost said what we've been saying since day one you know I keep getting killed still on Twitter because I remember early on I said this is basically about a bad cold you know so you get all these levels that will treat me every day sort of blocking a most sit bad cold now yeah I would change my mind about this thing I haven't but despite the numbers rising it and deaths obviously to me it's still a huge overreaction and doctor parks kind of she's the most she actually alluded to this we use this model from the imperial college in England which I'll get to a little bit later but we use that model and the guy who came up with that model who predicted that up to five hundred thousand Brits would die he scaled that back to twenty thousand now she talked about that last night so yeah overreaction perhaps I think so but they're not here unfortunately not here and you know the president still talking about getting back to work but.
Have Our Moving Plans Changed? And Are Our House Sales Derailed?
"Now. We know this is not a snow day. Everyone listening we completely understand. We have totally been doing our best to make the best of it while completely being at home but it is funny. How the second you hear something like well. Maybe it means I can do this. And then there's the bargaining in denial and then find. What are we settling to acceptance? Is that the last one. Maybe I mean I think I've accepted that. Like the best thing we can do right now is just stay put so it does mean that our whole plan for moving to Florida is kind of a question mark. I mean we still are going to do it. We own a house down there. That is a definitive thing and this house is sold so we have to be out of here in a certain amount of time. I think what it has turned into is that I thought maybe two weeks ago before this happened. I was kind of frustrated like we only get one week during spring. Break to work on this house and everything else has to be remote and maybe we could steal away to like do a long weekend or something with leaving the kids here with the grandparents but generally it was going to be like a long distance remodel and this tight time line where we were like we have to get the house back to livable. June fifteenth moving goal young. And can I interject just to remind people why it is not livable? Because this House that we bought is a fixer upper. It currently does not have any working bathrooms because it only has one bathroom in that bathroom does not have a sink in it. I mean I guess it has a toilet. It's not hooked up to water though like we are actively going through like getting connected to the sewer and water system right like we need to use the city's municipality and like sign form to get it. It's not just like turn it on on the street. It's like involves a number of experts. Getting water to the House again. Doesn't have a water heater so even if we got water to the House we couldn't take showers until we had the water heater hooked up. There are holes in the floor. Which makes it sort of dangerous to walk around. So we have to patch those. Oh and has h back so obviously can't vote Florida in June without air conditioning. Yes I mean it has. One just doesn't work right. So we're we're working on all of the systems from faraway away. But what I was GonNa say is like I went from a few weeks ago being frustrated I only had spring break and it felt hard to do this long distance but as of right now it feels like I lost the spring break trip and I just you know previous me was like Mamie only get spring break it now like current me like I don't even get once we went through the phases of realizing this is all going to change and our expectation for what's going to happen and the plan for it and the timeline we had like so carefully thought through is just completely obliterated like in all honesty. We have no idea what's going to be able to get done. How quickly it's going to be able to get done and so right now like it may mean that we move at a different time than we were planning to. It may mean that we move to a different place temporarily because if we can't get the house ready for us in time maybe we have to go to a long term rental temporarily so I just don't know like I think we were driving ourselves crazy a little bit last week and trying to think through all these scenarios and I found I guess a lot of just like peace in the acceptance of I'm not going to be able to figure it out right now like the unknowns are so great at this point that I should just let go of that for now and just roll with it like I think this whole year. I've been talking about my personal journey. Our wishes what of like dealing with letting go of plans or changing plans. That is true. That's been a theme for John. Yes we can pay that. We don't have to be like doing what we said. We'd do ten years ago because we're following the path that previous set ten years ago. Yes and so. This is a crash course in it right now. If I had prepared myself I have to learn it now. Basically well I was just GonNa say I also think in the midst of like. Oh this stinks. The timeline is so sad like what if we had already been in there and we could use this time to paint and like feather or nests. There are so many other times that if this happened it would be easier. But I'm also reminding myself that there are certain things that have happened that I'm very grateful for like selling our house literally the weekend before. All of this happened. Yes there are also a lot of worst times of this could have happened like it is not ideal that we're in the midst of a major life changing of moving to a different state. But like I said to you last night. I'm grateful we're not in the midst of a kitchen renovation right now. I'm sure there are some people out there. Who are I feel you because when we've done those like we haven't had access to our appliances sometimes are sink sometimes and that would have made stain at home and being comfortable cooking at home a lot harder and so I'm grateful. Our kitchen is up and running. I'm grateful our bathroom is done like maybe this is putting too much of a positive spin on something that maybe this whole experience for. Everyone is a good moment like put things into perspective. Like I'm not kidding myself that it's going to be this like Rosie experience for everyone because I don't think it is by any means but I think we can do our best to make some good out of it

Parasite review – searing satire of a family at war with the rich
"One of them is Best Picture winner parasite saw that in the theater and another one sought home that was nineteen seventeen and I will begin with a parasite because that is the one that's getting the most buzz on the heels of its win for Best Picture it made history it's the the first the foreign film to win Best Picture also won best international film to bottom line I really enjoyed it huh I thought it was incredibly original I'm not going to spoil because I went into this knowing not saying I knew thematically I kinda knew one line and I'll and I'll repeat that line to all of you but if you can help it go into it like I did I think it will enhance your movie going experience the only thing I knew what is that a family down on their luck kind of infiltrates a well off family and I didn't know how they infiltrated I didn't know what that really meant in South Korea and job I went into it with just those sentences and I was so surprised and so shocked of the direction of the movie there were a cut the way the movie begins you if you know nothing there is no way you could gas where it ends up where the characters end up the direction the movie takes the tone shift so for that the originality in this era of comic book movies and re hashing intellectual property this movie should be celebrated I will be honest though my first thought as the lights went up was I do not know if this was the best pitcher of the year hi John yeah don't you feel the same way I liked it and I did but I also don't know when I got out of it as a person like I know that everything doesn't have to be wrapped up with a bow I did think it was very rational but on the other hand I think when I stepped away and I keep I don't know if I'm being influenced by other people in like maybe I'd like it yeah I did like it more it's an odd film yeah so I totally get your confusion with I don't know if it's Best Picture no there was a lot of debate we went on Valentine's day with two other couples it was the light full it was a lot of fun and I and I think the other two couples really liked it Lincoln capital L. loved it all right capital L. Y. X. it I am for all the reasons I just laid out the originality is so refreshing but you don't see that a lot nowadays I just don't know you know was the academy in this isn't a popular thing to say you know what is the academy doing it because it speaks to you know it speaks to a political movement right now and I I wondered if they kindly tip the hat to that you know kind of a class warfare situation was that an influential thing because that's such a prevalent throughline in our lives right now what did they do it I don't know I I can't speak to why it's a Best Picture that's reassuring though one of a movie that you see your kind of you know good good with it but it marinades and then you like it more yes I don yeah I am withdrawn I I I house marinated on it and the more I think about it it is brilliant I mean it is that the twists and turns and how it's laid out as a moviegoer it was a fine I'll take a Lexus line it was a fun ride because I felt so lucky that I knew nothing it really enhanced the experience of seeing
Marketing and Branding in a Voice-First World
"Have with me today. A Sanjiv n John of what Stone Technologies Welcome. Gentlemen on Yes so you guys did a talk earlier today about marketing and branding and a voice I world. Can you talk a little bit about what you guys were explaining in that workshop? So in fact. I'm going to give the JOHNSONS. He was the one that was on the panel. I love it right so There were a number discussed The one of which of course was Discover ability that's top of mind in for most brands agencies marketers is how to. How do you get to the skill of the action in the first place? How do you make people aware of Discover ability on this platform system is still an area. That's very much influx in very much development I know I know that there are teams in Amazon and Google and in Bixby. That are working heavily in that space. Now that said there been some creative solutions around Addressing that that we're discussing the panel including Social Media Marketing to in social media pushes doing time events. For example the rain agency didn't interesting release with The Nike Sneaker Shoe drop that tied in with the halftime show of an NBA game. So you you had a very present call to action and you know the television was informing the home users to use their Alexa. I'm you can't get much more direct than that. Yeah I mean when you're talking about discover ability because that is something that people struggle with. It's just like any other marketing. You have to push it out. How would you suggest people do that on? Social Media Brealey when you're when you're doing on social media for example part of that is just letting somebody know you can now talk to? This brand. Alexa opened my brand right. Or Hey Google talk to my brand. But moreover you can target S- Certain user groups on on facebook you can look for hashtags on twitter You can do more targeted marketing or two people that are interested in more information about the Surface area that your skill touches on and I'll I'll use the term voice application to be a little bit more broad because you know every rightfully so every business us every brand would wants to have as much reaches as possible so they they wanted to be on every platform as possible so I think targeted Campaigns that focus on. Let's say for example. I'll just pull out one case in point. Let's say you have An Agency for balloon rides right then you would be targeting. People that have been searching for a balloon rides in a given area. Maybe you would. You would target like travelocity As a as a marketing platform. So you want to think about you. Know the keywords the demographic that would be likely to use your skill likely to be looking for your skill that makes sense. I mean how important is it for you to also teach these people how to use the scale how to interact with that? You're not only marketing. That hey we have a skill but how do you kind of Tell Them? What is the best way to use it right so he wanted to be as intuitive as possible. So you don't have to teach in the first place so keep the interaction Light quick and direct and deliver value quickly like for example One of the peace process of our platform involves coupon delivery. So Oh so you would engage the user with a set of very quick. Yes no pre qualifying questions to ascertain whether they are interested in the coupon you're offering and whether they're the right target audience but you don't want to Overdo it with a litany of QNA's you want to keep it down to like two or three questions than okay yes It sounds like you're interested in this. Please provide your phone number. And we'll send you a discount code and of course you want to make that Discounts worth it to that person to give up their phone number because of course. That's another piece of personal data so Of course you have your privacy statements. That's you're not going to be solid to third party But with the particular brand at that that's Phone is a phone numbers. Offered up to that particular brand can still use it to do additional reminders. We always in the space. We tend to think voice. I and often forget that it's not necessarily has to be boys exclusive so you can capture that initial data and then keep the conversation going on another platform so you you've got the phone number you then have SMS capabilities. Yeah I like that. You're saying it's not just voice I. It's voice exclusive. Because a lot of people do think I should just doing voice. It's really about integrating with every single thing you're right you want to meet the customer where they want to be met and so if they're coming to you with a on the voice platform certainly. That's where you meet them and you can use the voice platform for doing it with the voices good at like we found. It's good capturing numbers is spoken numbers. It's not very good at capturing spoken letters so even spelling an email address like the letters z could be mistaken for being often is My last name for example spelled I W Z is pronounced. Iwata's what do you think the likelihood of my spoken last name? We'll get transcribed correctly by the smart speaker. Can I don't care which far speaker you're now? The two of you both worked at Microsoft right. How did the tune of you knew? And why did you decide to create this company together so we met in two thousand one when I moved to Philly and we worked at Microsoft consulting services? We've known each other. I nearly twenty years and then we had I think as we went from being co workers to where we actually spent seven years making short films together and then I was between jobs and then John had this idea about doing something with Alexa and I had this sudden thing of going. You know I could go look for a job or you know when I turned seventy. I don't WanNa be sitting on my deathbed going. What if I tried and tried? And and we're we're we're at here. We are and John. John came along for the ride of Your Role. So when you decided to work together is one of you. More technical wants where the vision where the marketing. How do you guys work together? So John John is the so. He's in charge of the architecture. The platform where where we take in this. I'm the Shiny Talker guy you know and so I work. I work on that. We also have. We also have Patty Curry. She's helping us with marketing and strategic initiatives. We have a GUY UP IN BOSTON. Vic South Who's helping us with business? So I love it a little bit so you guys knew each other for a long time. He started this company. But you've been doing film work as well. What do you do? Where did that come into play? Does that have anything to do with the voice? If you're doing as well to well we a lot of the filmmaking. We did was actually around horror comedy and stuff like because we we always found whenever we tried to write a series script. Just started goofing off and so in comedy lights and that kind of Trent but honestly where I think the filmmaking came in with audio is one of the things John and as we started to we we were self taught and I taught myself how to do sound. John taught himself how to be a director photography and as we started getting into the in into working with film you know part of part of making a film is understanding how to tell a story and having a beginning middle and an end and when you think of conversation conversational design. It's the same thing you need to have a beginning a middle and an end and also as you're working with the film one of the biggest components it's actually more I believe it's about sixty to seventy percent of a film is the audio and so when you're making an audio application. There's a lot of crossover audio engineering of how do you? How do you get a person to feel like? They're part of this experience. How do you communicate is it? Are you know when you make your choices? Are you using the voice of the assistant? Are you choosing to use a human just using way files? What kind of you know? Maybe you're mixing some different audio in the background. So there's there's quite a bit of crossover when you really get down to it. Yeah there is an one of the things I love about this voice text base is. It's pulling in so many creatives my background's in dance originally and I do writing. People are writers. They're filmmakers. Why do you think that there is such a big pull of the creative space into this piece of technology more than others? I think everyone wants to live star Trek. Because let's get real. This is what we're starting to see. This is this is star trek this her being able to turn around to the computer and say turn the lights on. Turn the lights off. Phasers on stun right John. Yeah I actually used if this then that to set up an experience on On our speaker so that if I say you know red alert it blinks might Philips Hue Lights Red and and the Star Trek klaxons begin sounding. I mean yeah I agree. It's an interesting. I never thought about it that way. But that makes a Lotta Sense. So what advice do you have four brands? That are considering voice technology. Invoice Skills Abou- where they should start especially when it comes to their marketing component. Let's say they have a skill. They're utilizing capacity. What should they be doing as a brand I? I think starting simple certainly start with a very simple interaction that goes back to earlier statement delivered value quickly to the consumer. Don't involve THEM INTO A LONG-TERM CONVERSATION. Attention spans are fairly short so And used that learning to then build on and augment the skilled use that to determine what customers are looking for where they engage in where they not engaging where they dropping off you know. And it's an iterative process so it's not a one and done deployment. It's an ongoing Is going process? And to build on that We had the experience from releasing a skill that was like a treasurer on adventure story That is like an audio drama. Meets treat hundred venture self guide to story and we had some engagement with it was designed for children. It was written up in in Pc magazine as one of the top one hundred skills for kids But once the skill is finished there's no incentive to return once the person's face the game. There's no new content for them to explore so something to consider and strongly so is. How do you incentivize the person to return to the skill to become a monthly active user? So it comes back to refreshing your content and making sure that contents is. What the user certainly whether you sorta looking for make fresh make it new and put that content creation into the hands of the brand managers because certainly they're going to be the ones that other customers
Managing Coronavirus Outbreak Anxiety
"Welcome to the show. Always a pleasure to be with you. I'm glad that you here because you always have cutting edge information. You know stuff that that makes the news. It's very timely. And relevant and there's nothing more timely and relevant right now than the corona virus and the anxiety that it's causing people really all over the world but especially in America so I'm excited to talk to you about that John. Yeah I'm excited to talk to you as well and our audience about this outbreak. Because I I know it's been hyped up in the media a little bit and think a lot of people have a fair amount in our little scared about what this virus means. I imagine there are a lot of people are familiar with corona virus. But can you give us sort of the Reader's digest version of what exactly the corona virus is currence a type of virus that spreads from animals to humans of V Transmission that is typically airborne or through something like a sneeze or cough once its amongst humans. What makes it troublesome is that there is no vaccine for it and the treatment is kind of like the treatment for the flu in the sense that we don't really have a specific targeted treatment to help people with the virus itself at this time doesn't mean that scientists aren't working on possible vaccine or treatment for corona virus for this particular strain of it but it does mean that people are little afraid because it doesn't have an obvious immediate treatment or vaccine. Those are all really good reasons to be concerned and I can see why those reasons alone can cause somebody anxiety but if you look at. The news cycle entire cities in China have been quarantined. There's travel restrictions throughout the world. And of course you take into the fact that it's an unknown health crisis and of course words Lake Crisis Epidemic and I think all of this is contributing to why people are reacting in such a way. Do you think that's true? Yes I think it is true but we also have to take a step back and understand why these events are taking place why. Our entire cities being quarantined. And that's for a very good public health reason. It's to keep people who may have already spread the virus unknowingly to other people all in the same geographic location so they don't spread it any further than what has already gone so public. Health officials take precautions such as quarantining entire city to stop the spread of a virus especially important when the virus is easily transmittable as it appears that this strain of krona viruses so the fact that public health officials in China and in other places in the world are quarantining. Entire city is actually a very good thing. It helps reduce and prevent the spread of the virus to a greater magnitude than otherwise would be present it so it sounds really scary. I get that you don't really hear about people. Quarantining a whole city in the United States or in some country in Europe Western Europe but from a public health perspective. It's actually a very good thing. And it's very proactive. Step to take doesn't mean that the people are cut off from all communication with the outside world. It's not like a scary Hollywood movie type of quarantine. It's actually just means that. Travels severely restricted in and out of that city of course this competes with China's existing crackdown on Internet communication. So you know you put the two together and you get a situation where we're not getting as much information as we would like about things like how many people are actually infected and whatnot in China. But we're getting public. Health officials are getting sufficient information coup. Continue work on treatment and vaccines and understanding the spread of the virus. Now Dr Grow Hall you have A. I don't want to call it a four step technique to cope with fear and and managed the corona virus anxiety. But you have four pieces of information for us and it starts with not inflating the actual risk. Yeah let's step back for a second acknowledged look being scared being anxious about what is going on over in China and slowly spreading in other parts of the world is completely a natural response to what is happening. I don't want to minimize the fact that people have anxiety and do have fear about what the krona viruses and the spread but also would like to try and put that into some sort of context. I feel like anxiety and fear can easily run away with us when we don't look at the facts on the ground when we don't answer the irrational with some rational responses about what we know today doesn't mean that the situation couldn't change for the worse or for the better in the future. It just means that we should base our responses and our fears as much as possible on reality. I think it just leads us to have happier healthier life if we try and do that as often as possible in any part of our lives not just talking about the chronic so so indeed the first thing is. We don't want to inflate the risk. We don't want to over emphasize. The impact of what? The Corona virus has done far and what it looks like. It's likely to do and John. You have some stats for us when it comes to the corona virus versus the ordinary flu. And obviously we're not panicked about the ordinary flu. Can you give us those stats to kind of put it in a little further context? You Bet we have to keep in mind that things are ordinary like the seasonal flu. That comes around every year. We take for granted and we forget how much of an impact it makes in people's lives so for instance. A seasonal flu is responsible so far just the season fifteen million people have been infected in the United States of those fifteen million people. Hundred and forty thousand. People have had to be hospitalized because of their flu infection and it's resulted in a standing over eight thousand deaths. Eight thousand people have died from the seasonal flu in the United States for this season and it doesn't even make the headlines of any kind of news report because this is ordinary this happens every season. We have millions of infections every year of the seasonal flu and most of those deaths come about not because the flu is so horrible. Although if you ever get the flu you know it can be pretty pretty bad but because of immuno compromised. Individuals people who already have immune system isn't functioning properly because of an existing illness such as cancer or any number of other reasons so most of the deaths are occurring in people whose immune system is already not well functioning and I just want to say one last thing about understanding the rest and not inflating it compared the seasonal flu with what we know about this strain of corona virus today just under seventeen thousand five hundred infections and three hundred sixty two deaths as of today. It appears that the death rate is around two percent now. That's much higher than the death rate of the seasonal flu. Don't get me wrong but it's also not a surprising or overly concerning number. I mean it something to be aware of but two percent death rate is something that most people can understand is not going to come out and it's just attack you in caused her death if you get even the corona virus
Experts share what you need to know about traveling during the coronavirus outbreak
"Today. We're going to talk all things. Wuhan Corona virus with our very own. Dr Han Li who senior director of medical affairs at our sister site health line. Dr Lee thank you so much for joining us today. A lot of things have been happening day by day. We're recording this episode assode on Monday February third higher level. What's going on with the corona virus so at the high level? The Corona virus seems to still be spreading. We're still L. hearing of increased cases of New Infections and additional deaths. Right now I think we're at around three hundred and sixty one deaths. The vast majority of deaths are occurring in China and the vast majority of the cases are occurring in China. But I think over the weekend the news list that the first death outside of China has occurred and it was in a forty four year old Filipino. Man after he traveled to John. Yeah I I heard that news and I was Kinda on a shock because it was my understanding that younger healthy people have nothing to worry about and we clearly don't know the medical history of this forty four year old but Should people be really concerned turned by the at this point. You're exactly right. We don't know what this man's medical history as it is surprising cause forty four year old is not considered an older person and we had up until this point and hearing that only the people who are older or who have compromised immune system or any kind of pre existing medical medical condition or respiratory condition. Were really at risk of increased mortality. So definitely we are concerned about that but at this point we don't know enough and it the worst thing we could do is to overly panicked when not enough information is known and to jump to any false conclusions. I think I think the main thing to really keep in mind as we still need to find out a lot more information. Can you describe a little bit. What are some of the symptoms that they start with and then progress into and actually is a like the flu? In fact many of the cases that have been documented Came with folks who said that they had very very mild symptoms or no symptoms at all The ones that we're hearing about the ones that make the news are the ones that are the most of here Were there presenting with respiratory distress. So you have the flu. But on top of that you're getting severe costs. High Fever and difficulty breathing to the point where people are having difficulty with shortness of breath requiring a respiratory support either with a ventilator or intimidation and so those are the ones that are really severe that require hospitalization but in a lot of the cases including the ones wants that we've seen in the US people who've been documented with the novel Krono virus are well enough to actually stay at home as long as they remain quarantined. Nineteen at home and that they're not going around potentially transmitting it to other people. What would you say to someone who said okay the world freaking out about this but the regular flu is way more deadly? Why do we care about this so much? Well it definitely is the case that you know. We're scared about this because we have a situation and we've been hearing about it a lot more in the last a couple of decades that there are these new flus or viruses and bacteria that are making the jump between animals to humans and it's frightening to rest because there's a sense of vulnerability that we don't know when it's going to happen how it's going to happen or how quickly the spread can happen before we can contain it but in actuality you're exactly right. The percentage of people who get the normal seasonal influenza is much higher and the mortality rates for those are still quite high But that's where medical information and accurate medical education is really pivotal. We had health line media. Spend a lot the time really trying to do the best. We can to make sure that we are all of our readers with the best information so that they really can't understand whether true risks are and not beats you easily led into this sense of panic because of misinformation is a big thing especially in this day of social media. I know I got multiple notable people sending me the picture of the Grotesque Bat in a bowl Claiming that the corona virus came from people eating burnt bats. What's in bowls in China? Is there any sense of truth to that. And did it definitely come from this animal market as many people are talking about yes and now so yes there is Evidence at this point that suggests that the krona virus the cause of this current spread was from the wet market. But it wasn't necessarily from eating the food per se. A lot of it is actually from close contacts. Close contact is defined as a six foot proximity to other an infected animal or an infected person. I think the scare has now come because we're originally came from an animal in close proximity with an animal now people who are in close contact contact with others who have had virus or who have the illness of the krono virus can potentially get sick as well. So that's the real concern is that we've you. were seeing the human to human transmission. We've seen the cases in California in Chicago where a recent traveler from Wuhan Came Back and unwittingly transmitted it to family member because of the close contact and this is scary because unlike Ebola which required you know bodily fluid with pretty intense contact. This seems to be passing person to person pretty easily is that why officials are really concerned. Yes so there are certain ways as you can catch an illness. Sometimes it's really requires very very close contact intimate contact but when it comes to airborne illnesses like the corona virus or the influenza influenza it can travel and respiratory droplets and was that anyone can transmit if they're infected with the virus via talking hocking coughing or sneezing in close proximity to other people which is why we always reinforce in all of our education and our content on headline media that the best thing is to practice safe precautions. If you feel sick stay at home. Don't go to work. Don't travel through mass transit if you're going to cough sneeze he's or be close to people be very mindful and respectful. Don't cost out Logan. Cover your mouth with your elbow not your hand or your shoulder cover your mouth with tissue of possible and throw that away immediately. Don't let it just sit around infecting surfaces which other people can touch and then transmit to themselves so these as a precaution that we always try to reinforce with folks to help decrease any potential cause of transmission from person to person and let's talk about airplanes so listeners of this podcasts are many of them are probably on a plane. Right now listening to this. What do you recommend in terms of wiping down your seat area? Does it make sense. I know a lot of people. People are wearing. The medical masks that people are saying are pointless for receiving Viruses in the air How do we protect ourselves on airplanes and in airports airports it makes a Lotta sense to feel particularly vulnerable when you travel because you're supposed to a lot of travelers from lots of different areas and you're in an enclosed environment with airplanes? It is particularly good to try to clean your area as much as possible as wise to travel with antibacterial wipes and antibacterial actuarial Gel. So that you can hear in your area making sure that the antibacterial Gel has at least sixty percent alcohol rate of possible and make sure show that you clean off your tray table and avoid putting things in the back seat pocket because that's really just a nice medium for bacteria one of the things things that I find very interesting. Is that when you're on a plane. There's this belief that you're really at risk and there's nothing you can do about getting sick actually you can can really help yourself by just making sure that your seat as well ventilated by using the the air that that's right above your seat a lot of folks recommend that if you turn on the air vent position it so that it forms a force field effectively front of your head that you can actually blow a lot of the Viruses and bacteria way is not gonNA be one hundred proof but it'll help in terms of making sure that your area as well ventilated. Oh so it does actually work. I think you you know everything that you can do to help yourself protect yourself. It's a good idea. You know we always say when when we have situations like this to stay in a well ventilated area. You can't always do that when you're traveling because you're on a plane that's you know you're going to circulated exactly but what you can do is just to make sure that you've got some well ventilated while circulated air around you if possible you can test yourself by putting your hands on your lap and making sure that the air is hitting you on the top of your hand. That's when you know that the air is really blowing right in front of your face interesting. I did not realize that onto the topic of facemask most of the surgical face masks that the people are wearing. I've heard do little to protect inborn viruses. It's all about not infecting others. Is that true or as long as you. You know squeezed squeezed around your nose. Do these mass do anything. Well first and foremost the CDC does not currently recommend traveling with face masks. Because at right at this point. It's not known known whether the face masks will help at all or which types of face masks will help. Not all face masks are created equally a lot of the commercially available ones. Don't have the filtration that will help protect you from the viruses. But you're right. It's also the way we use the facemask. I often see particularly when I'm traveling in the subway systems. When people where masks they were all too loosely and they think they've got it off on well and they're protecting themselves? There's a lot of hollow space and open ventilation on the sides and so it really is effectively doing nothing. The other mistake that people make is they were the same one all the time for long periods of time so whatever contamination commission is on the mass they just retain with them and they don't throw it away. These risks mass are supposed to be single. Use face masks so you're not supposed to carry read them forever. But a lot of folks do that and they touch them and they touch other surfaces and they put them back on their face thereby rendering the whole mask kind of pointless at this point the best thing is related to perform good hand washing. Wash your hands at least twenty seconds with soap and water and try to avoid touching your face particularly alertly eyes nose and mouth after you've touched other surfaces when you're in public areas like on a plane or on the subway or other mass transit.
Why do my kids seem ungrateful and entitled?
"Our children's behavior is always always a reflection of their comfort level. So when they're feeling good about themselves when they're getting enough arrest they're feeling calm on the inside and positive about their relationships with us. Then we'll see generosity and our children will see magnanimous attitude stunning empathy sometimes but just like with us as adults. That's much less likely when they are. You're stressed or feeling judged by us which is again a normal thing that we do as parents. We judge their behavior. This mother indicates tickets that she has more than one child so there is is sibling sibling issues. issues. Going Going on on there's there's older older siblings. siblings. That That are are probably probably getting getting judged judged some some of of their their behavior behavior with with their their younger younger siblings siblings or or vice vice vice vice versa versa and then they hold on and this is similar to another podcast. I recently recorded about quote lying stealing and hoarding thing in the podcast. I explained that I don't like using those terms around children especially the hoarding and the stealing. Because those are more adult perceptions breath but those feelings of wanting to hold onto things or have more and not let anyone else have any of them. Those feelings come. I'm from an uncomfortable wanting place so tomato. The kind of empathy this parent wants her children to develop which I'm sure they have. APP developed in some ways. But they're just not showing it right now or when they're not shying it it really bugs her but ideally the place for us to go with with that is to be curious. I wonder where my child is acting like this. But that curiosity gets squelched if we immediately judge and we get our button pushed and then we're just in ourselves and Yuck and we're not open to seeing what's going on so we can remember that there's always always a reason that children behave the way they do and it's always a reflection on some level of their comfort. The feelings they have going on inside their stress levels. Then we can model empathy even in those situations young children. Don't have this world view that we league developed as adults. Their worlds are very small and again with all this development going on inside we develop more in these early years than all the other years of our lives put together so there's good reason for them to be self centered. It makes sense and I can relate to this actually. I've been stressed stressed out lately. And it makes me feel very stuck inside myself and defensive and not at my best. It's hard to remember to be grateful for what I have to be humble and that the issues I'm dealing with really aren't that terrible in the scheme of things and it makes me feel better when I step up out of myself a little bit but that's not my tendency. My tendency is to to be inside in my feelings holding on and yet with my more mature view most of the time I have a more mature view because I have the experienced. Tell me that this this too shall pass and that in the scheme of things even in the scheme of my life this is just a little blip and I'm going to get through young children. I can't really do that. They don't have that perspective so keeping all that in mind. Here's what I would recommend this parent. First of all. I recommend her taking from this. A greater understanding of her sensitivities around this topic which again are valid and totally understandable mandible and wonderful but when we know that we have a sensitivity around a certain topic and that this could be a button for us with our children it can help us is to put that in its place and it sounds like this parent already recognizes that this is a sensitivity for her so we can say okay this is an sensitivity for me but this isn't really about my children and where they are. This is about me and now I can work on putting it in its place so it doesn't get in the way of me. Modeling that empathy for my children and wanting to understand why they're behaving the way they are. It's kind of fascinating because children and will tend to show us the sensitivities by displaying those behaviors. It seems like they now and maybe they know because of the way that we've reacted to good before they see that that's vulnerable place for us. So maybe on some level they're trying to explore that as the healthy learners that they are and very invested rested and learning about us but again it's a natural tendency to be. GimMe GimMe Gimme when we're not feeling good inside so one thing I've I noticed in working with parents is that there's a tendency that many of us have to want our children to be banners for our causes. I'm not saying this his doing that. But it's dangerous because it's going to lead us in distancing direction from our child. We're going to be judging them as entitled as they can be. They're also very honest and open and they put it out there honestly. I want every single thing and I don't want you to have any and if we want them to develop those qualities and characteristics like generosity empathy regret develop their higher selves. Then we've got to understand that all size of themselves need to be accepted by us for them to be able to do those things so again. Our relationship with our child is going to be the most profound formative teaching method that we have to start from a place of acceptance than we're interested Mercurius. Then John Yes we absolutely give them feedback. Let them know that we can't do this for them. And that's not okay and we can't allow them to do certain things but that has to come from a place of unconditional acceptance and then from there. There are of course outside things that we can start to incorporate a parade understanding that the way children learn is number one throw relationship are modeling and to through meaningful experiences yes and there will be opportunities. There will be organic opportunities. That might mean taking our three-year-old to help a neighbor who's ill somebody that they they recognize and understanding that that will be more impactful than taking our child to feed of large group of homeless people when they're only three years old or taking them to a march or rally keeping at smaller and more child centered so that our child is participating in the the activity maybe making choices about what to bring to the children of this ailing neighbor. Let's say or the neighbor. Those are the kinds of off baby steps that will open. Our Children's is to put giving an empathy and compassion feel like keeping it small keeping it meaningful full to our child. The lessons are in the day to day in the moment to moment between us and in our smaller community so again I totally empathize with where the parents coming from. I love that she has questions. Patty model. This how do you talk about it. I WanNa do better this. This is both easier and harder than we might think it's harder because it's about our generous spirit towards our children and leading with curiosity and Acceptance Agency is a given and we're not going to be perfect that's a given to and some of the best modeling we can do is in terms of humility and gratitude to I lost my patients with you. I don't like the way that I acted and I. I'm really sorry. I'm sure that you are very tired. It and it's hard to get back into our regular routines when we've had all this holiday time and yeah there is a let down after the holidays and we just want more and more and more. I would make sure that you're not letting your children walk all over you and that you're giving in because you wanna avoid did tantrums. There's always a reason that they have those feelings and it's actually not that. They need that thing that they're asking for so being being the leader and then understanding that the relationship we have with our child is going to be the most profound teacher for them then then we can start to explore other ways to guide our children in what empathy what getting out of ourselves and into giving looks like these he's our developmental processes that need to be nurtured and trusted to a certain degree and allowed to bloom. We can join our child and a way that can make us feel like we're acting out of the highest part of ourselves. I really hope some of that helps

There's a couple of pieces of this testimony. They're very interesting. I you'll remember Laura Cooper because she was actually the official who is waiting to testify. Several Republican Republican House members actually stormed the compartmentalize the skiff as they called the classified information room in an effort to try and what they thought was unveiled testimony. Simoni that was taking place behind closed doors. Spent more time in fact waiting for those Republicans leave testifying itself but when she actually got down to testify a couple of elements here that I think are worth focusing one. She has on the ground details of what was happening inside. The government as the security assistance to Ukraine was withheld. She laid out very clearly. The concerns inside the Pentagon. This assistance was considered integral for Ukraine. She was helping to oversee Ukrainian peace negotiations with Russia. How important it was for the posture of those negotiations for the security assistance? Go through there. There's also the possibility of the fact that given Congress had allocated this assistance the fact that it was being held and was not being sent out may in fact have been illegal and that was a concern people the Pentagon might have as well. But there's also one more piece and I think this is very important because much of this testimony is very technocratic. How funding is dispersed? How the Pentagon was reacting here? This is different on August August twentieth. Laura Cooper details in meeting that she had within special assistant to Ukraine. Kurt Volker now former about the funding assistance. She said this meeting is not necessarily out of the ordinary she would meet with them strategize given her role overseeing Ukraine policy in his role inside the country but part of that meeting where they discussed the security assistance and how to Get it freed was this. This is a quote in that meeting. He did mention something to me. That you know was the first about somehow an effort that he was engaged in to see if there was a statement that the that the government of Ukraine would make that would somehow disavow any interference in US elections and would commit to the prosecution of any individuals involved in election interference and that was about as specific as it got the questioner. Then ask okay. Did he indicate to you that if that channel he was working on with successful it might lift the issue. As in. Let the aide go forward lower cooper responds. John's yes now. Here's the context their data. If you've been reading through these transcripts. I know you've been reading them. I've been reading them. That statement was discussed at nauseam throughout through the irregular channel. Is People Apple called it with regards to Ukraine. The efforts from some in the administration to push presidents Alinsky and his top advisers to release a statement a public statement. That would be read by Alinsky. That would talk about opening investigations into bereavement into Hunter Biden and also 2016 allegations unsubstantiated allegations into election meddling that is now mentioned.

oz music and underscoring about twenty years ago for rhino records and we had all of the background music and we interviewed some of the relatives of those who had scored the film in nineteen thirty nine and they said that the way they got the miss gulch theme but that that that that the display for the wicked witch and the lady on the bike they kind of the screwed around with the melody line of that that that that item the world to see the wizard sensitive enough that after that it became that that that the and that is where that was born time is the run away from us I got a text I want to mention if I don't know what to do for the next two hours I appreciate that I do not see the question out of the six away their echo this did you notice the extra running amongst the trees in the background in the which throws the fire the script scarecrow scene what they claim that question of good originally it was supposed to be somebody who was caught in the scene of a stage hand and then because we have lived through decades of of Howard Stern and Jerry Springer that has eventually evolved into a stage hand who on themselves and MGM executable himself because the movie was costing so much money an actress who hung herself because she didn't get the part of duty of Dorothy and finally a munchkin who hung himself because Judy Garland wouldn't date him get confronted with his all the time and it what it is it's not if you watch that scene from the beginning when they come to the apple trees the which is hiding behind a tree there's a live two can on the branch of the tree over the yellow brick road later on while they're talking to the tin Woodman there's a peacock that is wandering in the background and when Dorothy in the scarecrow and the tin and go up the yellow brick road at the end of the scene there is a soras crane flapping its wings hi MGM hired birds are rented birds I should say from LA zoo park of course all the wizard of oz was made in solid inside on sound stages at MGM but they wanted to get this forest sets the appearance of being as much of a force as they could so they brought in birds so what you're seeing is a an oversized bird flapping its its wings and now I'm not a munchkin so now we know there have been all sorts of sort of rumors and and and so the kitschy analyses of what the movie was really about you want to listen to any about entertainment he was a secret message about people who are pressed in trying to escape to a foreign land I don't think so but that that that it's been in layered onto it the movie has had so many things laid eyes as as has the Frank Baum book their college courses taught that Frank Baum's book is a parable on the populist movement the eight late eighteen nineties is total nonsense the movie you know that it did good which is the conflated with the bad which then they both represent the sides of the mother that deserted Dorothy so she has to live with her aunt none I mean it goes on and on and on and it's like if you could you can analyze anything to death but MGM was in the entertainment business they weren't trying to prove anything but the fact that Judy Garland was a great star that they could use Technicolor and special effects with no computers thank you very much everything is C. had to be created for that film my last question for you I've got about a minute for just let you know we're at one o'clock is why haven't we seen the re issue of this movie with a full two hours all of that footage was was jumped but not all of it most of it was junk the ray Bolger had a special two minute if I only had a brain dance has survived but the jitterbug production number they're only some home movies on the track the tramp that March to the Emerald City with the witch's broomstick we have stills and the track Judy garland's tearful reprieves over the rainbow locked in the witch's castle we have stills and the track but all of that was nitrate film and between ball players and the fact that in nineteen seventy MGM dumped all of its excess film into the Pacific Ocean because it was night trait nobody thought any of this stuff would be worthwhile or valuable that was the time when they auctioned off all the costumes and props my last question for you is when you see this movie again whenever you watch it next what's the scene that you still love the most when they come out of the forest and look across the poppy field at the Emerald City that you know that the journey's end is is there and you heard that great your out of the woods you're out of the dark you're out of the night music I think that is a great moment and if heaven doesn't look and sound like that when I get there this good Lutheran kid from Wisconsin ain't going thank you so much for

And you feel this like brush, of cold air, where the hell that come from, and it's days like it lingers. And then even if you move away at goes away, but the places cold spots. And yeah, that was my first real experience with, like paranormal and like proof. I mean I I'm telling you right now, Pat, I have no reason to lie. I'm not trying to impress anybody being honest. I, I know what I saw. Yeah. And you know how they say the the is tell the mind what, what it wants to see. Sure true. That's true. But I know what I saw for sure. And that pleases legit. Yeah. I find it interesting that you saw these shadow people in two different locations too. Well, yeah. That's the thing that each each floor of this place has a different story about it. But that fourth floor is well, I saw the two times, I was there, the fourth floor is where I think, okay, the shadow people, but in different rooms. Yeah. Hallways and corridors lake. All one thing. One part was really cool. The second time I went. Like I said, there's no electric city running in this building. So there can't be like a hologram or anything like that. The tour guide says, okay? Anybody wanna volunteer to walk down this hallway and one guy raised his hand. He's like, okay. So he walks down there. He waits maybe like a minute, and he says, okay, slowly turn around and come on back. So as the guys walking back, I swear, I saw two peers of lakes walking with him like on his left and right. Just legs like waist down notorious. Oh, wow. These leagues are walking with him. And then when he got closer to us, they of course they just disappeared thin here. Wow. That's what I seen. I don't know what anybody else in the group seemed, but that's, that's what I think that's like a weird video or something. Yeah. You know, so there's no electricity. There's no lights on in the building. Billy light from the moon coming from the windows, and there were shadows of, of legs walking with this guy. It was kind of neat. Wow. That's something. Yeah. The places is it's, it's definitely worth a road trip from Chicago were it's like a four and a half hour drive to Bill. It's it's a fun time. Good city local places to, to hang out. Eat and drink and. There in Louisville. You gotta stop it the way pretty hill. Oh, yeah. But I drive like granny so that would probably take me about seven hours to get there. Then. Well. On the guest. There you go. Yup. Okay. So that was my interview with Mike Morrissey. Wow. Good job. Yeah. And I think I was a little bit more nasal than okay during my voice like that. I don't know. That was done over Skype. So the audio quality might not have been the best and I apologize for that. So Mike is so awesome. And he's a super intelligent guy. I, I really enjoy talking to him about goes stories. And I'd like to also say that he came out with us to bachelors grove. When we did our first bachelor's grove episode, and as I said, Bechers grove is another place. It's both to be one of the most haunted locations on earth. And Mike confess to me that he had never seen anything there. But yet, he strongly believes he saw something at Waverly hills that gives them some credibility. I would say some. Yeah, I, I don't know how many do this episode. So Mike gave me gave us a brief part of the history, and I'd like to elaborate a little bit about that talk about some parts that he didn't mention it may be clarify some parts that he did say. So he did say that. We've really hills is located in southwestern Louisville. Kentucky, the land that it's on was purchased by Major Thomas Hercules Hayes, a good name. Yeah. That was in eighteen eighty three. Did you know that Elton John's middle name is Hercules, no? Yeah his middle name is Hercules his made up name. Oh, okay. So he gave himself. I'm not a big Elton, John fanatic. I just want you guys know I appreciate his music, but I don't know how I know that. That's great though. I love waiting, give yourself some, you know power. Right me. Right. That I that I know is middle name circulate. Oh, okay. Elton john. Yeah. Elton if you're listening, you can come on the show at anytime. So Major Thomas. Hercules Hayes was a veteran of the civil war, although he was a confederate major. Okay. It was located far away from any school way really hills. That is. And Mr. Hayes had daughters or major Hayes had daughters that he wanted to attend school, so he built a schoolhouse and he named it Waverly school, based on the teacher, that he hired Lizzie Lee, Harris. And she had a fondness for Walter, Scott's Waverley novels. Wow. That's complicated. Yeah. And Waverly is spelt differently to then. Okay. Gotcha. But I like that. He's like, okay, so I'm living here. I like where I live. I want my daughters to go to school. That's awesome. Number one, right? Eighteen hundreds. And so he's like, I'm I'm going to build a school in just hire a teacher and just hire a teacher. And then that teacher's favourite novelist. Yep. Done name the school in, you know what major Hayes liked it. So much. Because it sounded peaceful. So he named his whole his whole property Waverly hills, cool. Yeah. The area around Ohio river was considered wetlands, and it was a perfect condition for Burke uses bacteria. Oh, yeah. Not so cool. Major Hayes headed Chicago in connection to as he owned large shares of the Pullman, railroad stocks, and we'll have to do an episode on Pullman, one of these days as his history is very interesting to. And I'm sure there's some ghostly stuff about okay left. Yeah, they might have punted him. We'll say spoiler alert Pullman, not the greatest guy. No, he also worked for the Pullman company. So, yeah, we definitely have Chicago connection with Waverly hills, it when you live in Chicago. He got out of the sky. Go connection it Chicago. We do things here in nineteen. Oh, eight major Hayes sold Waverly hills to the to Burke, usas board because he was getting older, and his kids were already grown up in there. There wasn't much farming actually done on his land. So it made sense for him to sell it. Get built a school educated McCague's. No. It's time to move on move on. Speaking of moving on. Major Hayes passed away, on November ninth nineteen nine about a year after he sold, and he was at the, the ripe old age back then of seventy two years old. He died of complications associated with pneumonia. So he didn't die of tuberculosis. I was hoping for that connection to make it all make sense. Sadly, something that's still happens. Yeah, he is buried at the cave hill cemetery in Louisville so Waverly hills sanatorium. And we, we talked about sanitarium in sanatorium why we didn't bring Abbas. Yeah, episode. Yeah. So there. So I think Mike said, sanitarium USA, sanatorium, there, the same, at least according to the internet. Yeah. So it officially opened in nineteen ten and began taking Burkey losses patients. They kept the name, but not necessarily the spelling, although it kept going back and forth Waverly to Waverley. It's just different spelling. It is took out a letter. Yeah. There has been reported Mike said sixty thousand deaths. He's almost there, sixty three thousand deaths Waverly, okay? When I heard that interview I was like no way to berkey Bosa was a big killer, especially in, especially in the United States. It was considered the white plague. Now, what was interesting is when I was doing way history get mine was mostly focused on the goose part. They were saying that. Actually, the majority of patients lived. It was like just a, a percentage that died. But the so then think about how many patients there must have been sixty three thousand I, I mean that's a lot onto the hospital too. So it got bigger and bigger before before it ended. So Mike was a little bit off on when the hospital closed although he's right about something else when he said the nineteen eighties the hospital closed in nineteen sixty one though because they lowered the need for such a hospital by coming out with streptomycin in nineteen forty three. That's an antibiotic. That's highly effective against Burke, Ulises. He was right though to about some of those crazy treatments that they. Oh, yeah. Yeah, I'm not even gonna touch those things because he's totally right about those things. The building reopened in nineteen sixty two as Woodhaven geriatric center. It's a nursing home that mainly treated aging patients with dementia. As well as fairly mentally handicapped people. This is kind of ironic though, as major Hayes was known to not like old people, even though he was seventy two when he died, he used to hang out with the young ends, and never people of his own age. Oh, okay. Well, that's interesting. But it's interesting that it became a nursing. I guess that's true. So this nursing home, probably not on the up and up because there were reports of patient neglect, because it was severely understaffed and was closed by the state in nineteen eighty two. Oh, gosh. I also had read that they did like shock treatment there and all that kind of stuff. I'm sure they did. Yeah. Yeah. So there was a plan to turn it into a prison. And also a plan to turn it into a they wanted to build the largest statue of Jesus on that did see something about that. Yeah. Like too, like with Rio. Like, yeah. Yeah, it was it was modeled after the Rio Rio de Janeiro Jesus. And, but it was going to be bigger L today, we're gonna set the record for the biggest Jesus that they didn't do it. But none of this stuff actually happened. So the tunnel that Mike speaks of was actually an entrance and exit for workers at first, but then, as they were going along treating people for Burke, ses, they realized that it would probably make people lose, all hope if they saw all these bodies being transported out, so they decided to use it as a transportation for bodies as well. Well, see could be going to work. Taking a body out. Oh, yeah, well, yeah, I'm sure that happened often. Yeah. Yeah. In two thousand one Waverly hills was sold to Tina in Charlie Mattingly, and they hold tours of Waverly hills and host a haunted house each year on the site. All proceeds of the haunted house, go to the restoration of Waverly hills. Yeah. Waverly hills, who would have thought. Early hills. That's not where you want to be. Thank you, Mondo are right. Well, that's all I have to continue the history that Mike already laid down for us. He didn't awesome job. I don't even think he had notes. I think this was.

"john yeah" Discussed on KTRH
"John. Yes. You were prepared. Mr President a lot of the money. We saying I was prepared with the microphone prepared. I was prepared. Not people don't like saying that you were prepared for questions. I am prepared. I'm always prepared a lot of the money that goes to count toward your eight billion dollars is money that's being reprogrammed in the DOD budget. How how can you guarantee to military families and to our men and women of the military? The none of the money that would be reprogrammed to a wall will take away from other technology other renovations construction that is desperately needed in our military. So John we had certain funds that are being used at the discretion of generals at the discretion of the military. Some of them haven't been allocated yet. And some of the generals think that this is more important. I was speaking to a couple of them. They think this is far more important than what they were gonna use it for. I said what were you going to use it for and I won't go into details. But didn't. Sound too important to me?

But when you think about the kind of numbers you're talking about. CF seven hundred billion seven hundred sixteen billion when I need to billion three billion out of that for a wall, which is a very important. Instrument a very important for the military because of the drugs at Poran. And as you know, we have specific rules and regulations were they have a drugs, and what you can do in order to stop drugs, and that's part of a too. We'll take it a lot of money from that realm also. But when you have that kind of money going into the military, this is a very very small amount that we're asking for. Go ahead..

I didn't I didn't think to reading it. But I did feel genuinely sickened down. I did get the end of that one. It was also about contacts as well. Because the embarrasses novelist sixty years old now, but seemed sort of urgent and necessary then to be breaking barriers down doing things that were shocking just for the point of the Ming shocking.
