Democrats projected to retain control of the House of Representatives
"Of course, they believe they've got a Biden win as well. A CZ I want to take control of both houses of Congress. So far, Democrats have gained one seat. Cory Gardner, the Republican Colorado conceded to the former governor. A moment ago, I spoke to Senator elect John Hickenlooper to congratulate him on his victory tonight. To welcome him to the United States Senate and to make sure that he knows I will support him in this transition anyway, that I can. That flip is somewhat canceled out, though, is the Alabama Senate seat held by Democrat Doug Jones went to the very pro Trump retired football coach Tommy Tuberville in Arizona. While it appears the seat held by incumbent Republican Martha McSally is going to the Democrat, former astronaut Mark Kelly. Exactly said it was too soon to make that call. Kelly himself said he's confident but that votes were still being counted. Some seats are definitely staying in Republican hands. Joni Ernst is keeping her Iowa seat. Lindsey Graham is keeping his seat in South Carolina. Jessica Rosenthal Fox News, however,
It's Election Day. Take a breath. Here's what to expect.
"Politics. And this landscape in particular, Wendy Schiller joins us. She of Brown University, of course on a friend to the program, and Teo Is the station with the chair of political science again at Brown University. Wendy, What is your base case? No. I just get right to it. I think here's what I think will will know from some congressional races, I think, signaling earlier than even the presidential races. We know that there's a lot of people who are elected in 2018 in what we call competitive swing district like Virginia, for example. Leave Illinois. We have a couple of races in Texas that look really tight and are surprisingly competitive. We have a couple of Minnesota, you know if things start to swing in congressional district sooner. For the Democrats. Then you start to think, Okay, maybe buy will have a very good night. But, you know, we'll know about Florida will know about North Carolina will know about Arizona, and we'll know about Georgia, probably, but before midnight tonight, and if all of those swing for Trump If Trump looks really healthy in those states and looks like he could win, then I think things get very, very dicey for Biden, so that's a big sort of vomit or buying only when one of those states You know, one of those four states or look like he's in the lead in a considerable lead in one of those states for him, that sort of have a more relaxed night. But if he if Trump wins, all of Omar looks like he's going to win all of them, I think that that tells us that this sort of blue wave we thought might emerge isn't going to emerge the same way. So, Professor. How do you think the Senate will shake out is there in fact, you know the market's kind of suggesting here today that a blue wave may in fact be in the cards? How do you think that might go in the Senate? That that that's a great question, Paul because you think about the Senate, and you think you know Mitch McConnell is totally immune. This time, you would have thought if there's a big blue wave. You know, The guy has really been the poster boy for the campaign against the Republicans controlling the Senator Mitch McConnell. He's goingto probably breeze to reelection, some a little suspicious of that big blue way for the Senate. Iowa looks neck and neck. You know, we had a recent poll. That's very credible that looks like Joni Ernst can pull it out and stay. You know if Cal Cunningham can win in North Carolina That suggests probably that the Democrats might get 51. If they can win Maine as well. Probably away in Arizona. Probably gonna win Colorado and lose Alabama, so they're looking at probably minimally a 51 49 Republican, or 50, 50 51 49 Democrats. So I think that's where they you know, we don't know. And I think that's where North Carolina becomes so important, even even if we don't know by Trump. You know, it's Cal Cunningham looks like he's really gonna win that race that suggest better things. The Democrats across the board for the Senate Say some of that again. When do you say Arizona is definitely going to go Democrat Texas? What did you say about Texas? And then also, I think, Arizona for Mark Kelly. I think he's been polling very consistently ahead of Martha makes alley. But you can imagine, let's say people voting for more. Kelly, a former astronaut. You know and not voting for Joe Biden. You know, voting for Kelly because they want him over more than Sally and they voted for Trump in Arizona. You didn't see the Democrats winning Senate in Arizona but not winning the presidential race. Then Texas is, you know, shocking right? The turnout in Texas has been absolutely shocking. And but it looks like John Cornyn comfortably ahead of head guard that the challenger there, But I think the issue is that Trump is only basically one point ahead in Texas, which is just you know, if you think about politics, just stunning. Same with Georgia. George will be interesting because it does not get 50% or more against us off. Then you've got to run off elections in Georgia in January, and I think that's really going to be some interesting voting dynamics, so it's possible the Senate Democrats could ultimately end up with a 51 of 52 majority, but I still think it's a bit of a long shot. So Professor if the presidential election becomes contested, what is your kind of base case for how it may play out? I think we could be faced with an unprecedented historic situation. I think you know if we have a tie, for example, if in the Electoral College in December's actually a tie, it goes to the newly elected house, which is expected Thio more Democratic. However, the Republicans still control more votes in state delegations than the Democrats, and that's Probably isn't going to change so you could conceivably have literally the house electing a re electing President Trump but in the Senate. If it's 51 49 with the new Senate and its new Democrats, then they may like Tomahawk. Advice. I mean, really, quite stunning. It's really stunning thing. So I think so many things have changed already in 2020 weather, Trump gets reelected or not, is obviously monumental. But even if he gets reelected, I think the Democrats have shown they know how to mobilize voters, and I think they've shown some of these states have changed a lot in terms of demographics, and they are going to be more competitive, moving forward. Which changes the nature of politics going to 2022. If we know that politicians look at the next election the minute this election is over, and so when we start to think about what the balance of power might be in the Senate house in 2022 these gains the Democrats appear to be making among voters in the states. Changes a lot of dynamics, which will probably change some of the policies coming out of Congress. Yeah, I mean, it's really the African American gold, right, Wendy and how much more of that will see? We're already seeing, you know, a lot more engagement. Yeah. So I think African American who has always been key in North Carolina and Georgia had about 64% African American turnout in 2016. It wasn't enough because those numbers were not hit in in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania among African American voters, and they, you know they may or may not get there. If they get there, I think Biden winds relatively easily. But what's interesting is suburban white women. Of all educational levels seem to be really vehemently at the moment against Trump in the polls, and it could be that instead of the black vote really being key in the Midwest, it ends up being white women. Which would be really interesting shift, you know, mirrors 2018 when white, the majority of white women voted for democratic candidates, But it would change the nature of the Democratic coalition. If that were the deciding factor, So that's what I'm looking for. I'm looking for turnout, particularly in particular counties in Michigan. Well, we still have. A lot of people are gonna vote in person and certainly in Pennsylvania when you were really out of time. But I am desperate to
'Dude, I'm Done': When Politics Tears Families And Friendships Apart
"Now you have likely seen it or felt it yourself. Now A recent survey shows how the nation's bitter political divide is taking a toll on friendships as NPR's Tuvia Smith reports with political polarization hitting a fever pitch. Even decades long relationships are caving under the pressure. It's been happening everywhere on social media, and in really life did straight up there. Dude, I'm done Lose my number that Shimada Davis from L. A. I just hung up on my end, and I proceeded to just block them in every possible way. Joanie Jensen from New York. I hate families, everything but I just don't know and Ricardo de Forest from Florida, there among the many Americans dumping friends over politics. It's one thing to disagree about tax policy, says Davis. But this is deeper. It's about morality and justice. As a black man. He says he simply could not abide his friend of 25 years down playing police brutality. It's like if this is your attitude. I don't respect you. Now I don't because people are really dying. It's also that kind of moral absolute to Jensen, retired professor and sexual assault survivor who cut off a friend of 40 years who was being cavalier about the allegations against Trump's then Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. He was going off flight. Oh, you drank the Kool Aid Cabin on boy. He didn't do anything. I said if this is his core ethics, I don't want that kind of person in my life Conservatives, Of course. Khun B. Justus, quick to spurn the liberals in their lives who clashed with their core values like life or the biggie for Ricardo de Forest Liberty. They sold our country out. This election is about the soul of what America is. He can be a free country. Andy, a socialist state to forest, a 61 year old steelworker cut off several cousins who he calls hard core Trump haters all they can do it. From the races on man bed on man raises, you know, blowing spittle in and veins popping out of their heads Yolk soy Latino, But I guess I'm some sort of horrible races because I like Trump. Ridiculous. We are seeing more political polarization today than at any point in modern history. Jocelyn Kiley, with the Pew Research Center says about 80% of Americans now have few or no friends across the aisle, and the animosity goes both ways. Democrats are a little bit more likely to say they'd end a friendship. But Republicans, maybe a little bit less likely to say they have friends on the other side, so it may not be all that differential. Everybody is doing this Tania Israel The University of California psychology professor runs workshops on cross the aisle conversations, she says. Both sides have big blind spots when it comes to the morality of their own side, and they all view themselves as eminently fair. And right. When I say all these things, I think I found fairly reasonable and see the other side as irrational. Just something wrong with these people. Whether conservatives like the forest or lefties like Joni Jensen, I said, Oh, my God, he really is brain. Wass. Everyone Tanya, Israel says could use a little more intellectual humility were flattening people out, you know, in terms of our view of them and not really seeing the full complexity of people on the other side. It's exactly what Georgia truck driver Jon Langford says his brother who's gay did to him. He went off on the sand. Essentially, I'm a racist and a homophobe. Just because I'm a trump supporter, knowif stands or butts. Ain't completely cut me out of his life, Langford says he's trying to not do the same and toe hang onto his friends. On the other side. I could assume that anybody that supports Biden is a firm believer that it's okay to murder a baby, but I don't From the other end of the political spectrum. Connecticut business consultant Jeff Maren Steen is also straining to stay friends with some trump supporters. Despite all the invective and insults, you know you live They're all the same or these ad hominem attacks. Maren Steen no longer talks to some of them with others. He just doesn't talk politics. It just feels like the healthiest thing for me to do at the moment. But, you know, I suppose the risk is that I'm just retreating into my own information bubble with people who think just like me. Indeed, experts say more conversation, not less is what's needed to heal the
Senate Begins Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings
"For Supreme Court nominee Amy Cockney, Barrett continues. Fox's Gurnal Scott has this life Lise As Judge Barrett listens.

Is Mitch McConnell Rigging The Game?
"Other news, there's the other branch of Congress or the other house. Of Congress. The Senate and everyone knows their Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is unshakable and ruthless, and he's going to maximize his power however cam, but it is also the case the death of Justice Ruth Bader GINSBURG has taken us to uncharted territory. There are very real political pressures that are going to affect how the next several months play out. Mitch McConnell does not care about being charged with the Crisi but the raw politics of this moment themselves are not uncomplicated. As it was with the affordable care act remember Mitch McConnell had a lot of bravado about that and he failed famously and humiliatingly to replace the law. Here's mayor discuss across pressures. He faces longtime McConnell Allah Gist Jane Mayer Chief of Washington correspondent New Yorker wrote an incredibly insightful profile McConnell back in April this weekend row quote from Mitch McConnell keeping a Senate. Majority matters more than the Supreme Court. Jamie. It's great to have. Let's start with that because it seems to me there's two imperatives here. Everyone says about McConnell the two things he cares about is keeping the Senate majority and being Senate majority leader. Judges the Federal Bench, and there is a way to interpret the politics of the moment that there's a little bit attention between those two imperatives. How do you see it? Well, I mean there is I mean he wants to get obvious wants to hold the majority wants to stay being majority leader. And, this is going to be the crowning moment of his career to have yet one more justice on Supreme Court here we can get him through and he's promised trump of course that he's going to have a vote on this, and so how do you do this the problem? The problem for McConnell is it's unclear if he can keep the majority in the Senate. It's a dicey election year for him. There are a number of racist. They're very close and he doesn't want to do anything that's going to hurt the endangered members of his caucus. So he's got to try to juggle the schedule in some way that doesn't put those members on the spot in a way that will hurt them. So he's the first thing he's going to do an, and surely his done is canvas. Those members find out exactly how they feel about how this this process would affect their races. And then, and then way that in terms of whether it be better have a vote before or after the election. So. It's it's. It's. It's it's tricky but he is nothing if not clever about things like this this is he he? Very early on in his career, he ran for office from a district where he hadn't been resident in residence long enough and he vowed after that, he would never again ignore the rules, and since then he's become kind of a master of the rules, the more arcane the better. And he just he loves talking to the parliamentarian in the Senate and figuring out sort of the the most devious ways to get what he wants. The most sort of obvious pressure here. Just talking about this and I think it's pretty interesting. There's a bunch of folks who are up. In who are imperilled where it's not clear That going ahead with this would be helpful them. We have a bunch of pulling out today showing majority of people oppose it. Those numbers will probably change as they converge towards the polarization and everything else. But like Cory Gardner is down in all the polls and Colorado, he's in a state that Democrats have carried. Now a bunch and plan to carry again Martha. mcsally sally is down a to mark Kelly. You know they're on the sort of aggressor side here in terms of public opinion. It does seem like they've kind of don't care. It doesn't seem like there's a jump together mentality here in terms of getting them to come out whether it was him or not a publicly for those. Well I think. He's GonNa. Be Looking at McConnell will look at each of these races and I think you can almost imagine that he's written off. Gardner in. Colorado, and makes out the in Arizona. So he's not going to change his plan just for them unless he thinks it's going to save them and you'd probably thinks it won't save them and he's already given collins kind of buy in Maine. So it gets you down to the racist that are really going to matter in this are probably it's it's probably Tillis in North Carolina, Joni Ernst in Iowa, and Danes in in Montana, and if McConnell feels that those three or not endangered by going head, he may just gun it. You know and and try try to get I think though that in addition to just thinking about each of these races and how it affects each of the races, there's something else. He's probably got to think about, which is the overall look of this thing if if it appears to the American public that he is one set of rules for Democrats and there's another set of rules he's got for Republicans here, one Senate rules for America and another set of rules for whoever trump nominates at this point, it looks like he's reading the game it looks corrupt. It looks like a naked power, grab an and it's ugly and that could actually create a backlash I think that both he and trump have to think about. It it might really bother a lot of people in this country to think that that it's it's just too corrupt game in Washington. Yeah, I. think that's a correct reading of both where the polls are and the political risks they run and I think it's notable that McConnell has committed to vote but not win and I thought. This was also notable. He wrote this dear colleague later re basically says I don't say anything don't lock yourself into position. Let it give it give us time to work over the coming days. We're GONNA come under tremendous pressure from the press to announce how he will handle the coming nomination for those who are unsure how to answer for those inclined to oppose giving nominee a vote I urge you all to keep your powder dry Dombrowski and collins. Have not heeded that but Mitt Romney said declined today saying anything I know Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania I fully expect will support moving forward. But that that to me, it was interesting because the timing here and the sort of needle to thread is not nothing I think we'll try to do it and the odds are in their favor they will. But because of exactly what you and unseeded from the political standpoint, it's not clear that this is help for them politically in the short term. I think it may not be I. Mean I think also it's going to energize the base on both sides here for and the thing is that when it comes to the energizing the base, the base that needs more energizing really is probably on the Democratic side and you've already seen it happen I, mean look at the amount of money that act Lou raise you know practically overnight a hundred, million dollars two, hundred and sixty. Now it's one hundred and sixty million dollars. Shipping shocking about money. Shocking money an and I think the other thing that it might do is from was doing some reporting two days. I think it may really energize kids younger voters because. You know they were kind of holding their nose, a lot of them about Joe Biden it wasn't an exciting. It didn't seem you now like there was that much reason to do it. Now there's a reason that a lot of young people are GONNA see they're gonNA look they're gonNa see Roe v Wade is in the balance they're going to see a four Bul healthcare act and possibly anything to do with insurance for preexisting conditions and they're looking at the future this is going to. Their. Lives for the this is a this is a decision that has tremendous implications for everybody in the country and it's GonNa be clear and so I, you know it may turn you know help turn out. The Democrats who were young. Six three Roberts court climate. Regulation jurisprudence. A. Favorable to the kinds of solutions. That are necessary. Do you think? Ultimately McConnell himself is up and I don't think he's. He's personally a lot of trouble against say, McGrath at least the pulling now but there are also just a bunch of seats that weren't supposed to be in play that really do seem like they are. There's A Texas poll that has cornyn barely up. There's a Mississippi poll out today that has. Chrissy Hyde Smith a just a few points on Mike espey. There's the Iwa Joni Ernst race I mean it's wild how wide the sort of battlefield has gotten for him to try to hold this thing together. It's it's really volatile and and and the thing is it. What it does is it puts the Republicans on the spot about they've been doing kind of a split that's broader and broader that gotta keep the trump face and and but that's not enough for in many places to get reelected, and so they've got to do is add in. The moderates the you know suburban women particularly and got a candidate here who for a nominee for the supreme court that is truly the choice of the evangelical part of the trump ace it by very much alienate moderate women in the suburbs and in other places especially over things like abortion where sixty two percent of the people in this country saver. Abortion. As keeping it legal and don't WanNa go backwards. So it's it's. It's I think it's a it's it's a it's a it's a risky thing for some ways. You people think it's all into such a gift. Not, necessarily think that's right. Read on the situation Jane Mayer thanks as always great reporting and inside appreciate it. Great to be with you.
I Have $50,000 Left Over From College Scholarships
"In the lobby of Ramsey Solutions Jona joins us for the question John Holliman. Ramsey thank you very much for taking my question. Sure what's up? So in a little over week, I'm going to be starting my college experience and I'm in a very fortunate position to where I'm receiving hundred thousand dollars towards my college cost Lloyd ago. Thank you however through a number of merit aid scholarships that four year total is going to be about fifty thousand meaning the residual is kind of up there and that's my question is. In the four years that I'm in college. What should what should I do with that fifty thousand that remains Where you going to school that? Ole Miss Bonus or what are you studying chemical engineering with a potential double major in Mandarin Chinese of course. Goodness. Gracious. Wow smoke. That's fun well. Here's the thing. Joni you. The amount of money you can make investing fifty thousand. Pales. In. Comparison. To What The To to what your degree is worth. In the marketplace, so you are a better investment. than. Mutual Fund is. Now granted. We don't need that fifty thousand and we don't think for you to graduate. Now, without debt but if the merit scholarships dropped for some reason, this fifty thousand sitting there not invested Is or not trapped in something is worth more as an insurance policy on you getting through school without that then than any amount of money would make. So let's say it may ten percent Sharon cry so you'd make five thousand bucks. And you. So you'd make in four years you make twenty grand correct, which isn't spit compared to what you're going to be making absolute. Be My. Hope. I think that's fairly predictable with you. Sir. So the You know what you could make on. That is not as good as making sure you get through debt free. So if you WanNa just park it in a mutual fund or a money market account you can if you wanted to put it in a low risk, low volatility, mutual fund or some kind that's fine but you could still lose some of it. I would not put it into retirement account I would not put it into a super long term thing because then you're going to be tempted if you get squeezed to borrow instead of using that money. And again, you're the magic sauce not investing. Investing long-term become the magic sauce, but it'll come from your income that you're going to create. So pretty incredible situation you got yourself into. This is neat. Your Mom and dad did a great job obviously without much merit scholarships you did a great job. So those are academics a lot of them. Yes yeah. Okay. Very cool. So what is the deal with the Mandarin Chinese you want to go on the mission field or something? No. So That's actually through a federally funded program at Ole Miss this a flagship. Mandarin Program, and so I've studied Chinese since middle school and it just so happens that as I was searching for college that program popped up and I was able to go there, visit them at a really good impression and. It seems as if they had a good impression of me. So but I mean, you didn't have there wasn't like mixing that with the chemical engineering and some way that you had a certain goal. It's just you've enjoyed the language exactly Oh. Okay. All right. That makes that makes sense. I thought maybe the two together we're taking somewhere. I didn't know what you were doing. Okay. Might might be international business of some kind but Wow and what a great language to know in today's world. Absolutely. So very cool. Why Shop Guy Man thanks for coming by.
First known Covid-19 death linked to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is in Minnesota
"A Minnesota man who attended the Sturgis motorcycle Rally in South Dakota last month, has become the first person who was at the rally to die from covert 19. A number of cases linked to the rally continues to rise across the nation Rim news of the first death linked to that massive motorcycle rally last month in Sturgis, South Dakota. Nearly 300 covert cases in 11 states are also traced back to the rally. Now. Corona virus cases air surging out of control in South Dakota that sharp rise in just the past two weeks. That same trend also seen in Iowa, where Senator Joni Ernst this week repeated a widely debunked claim that the number of covert death is greatly inflated today.

"Hello Hello Welcome. That's quite funny that you picked that lineup by the funnies because it was I said it in barons in Glasgow when we were recording a live album on the tour and finally is a very endearing to call someone in Glasgow. If you're being an idiot appeared fanny and it just came out. It was unplanned. It's on my live album so yeah I think is gonNA glass that one great. Hashtag stike five eight member to write the word five. So you've been based out in La for some time now and that's obviously a very different culture. Has that impacted on your song race in Seoul what you say. Yeah I think location is always GONNA be important ingredient in what material you come up with and I'd actually go night to La to sort of start again. Because I'd been through some really difficult stuff here in the UK a dotted past divorce. Everything owned just really needed a fresh start. I wanted some sunshine and I wanted to be somewhere just in this of replenishing environment. London's quite overwhelming very fast place city. Oh it was found it quite difficult to relax in London and I gone to Venice. Beach was onto an. I'd been going to La for a long time tour but it was the first time few years ago I went to Venice beach and it was the first place. I'd been where everyone is just bombing around every day of the week. You don't have to wait for the weekend and that's actually really helpful for what we did. Because we don't have weekends in London if I had a Wednesday off. Everyone's just giving me evil looks because I've got time off whereas there it's just a very laid back quite an alternative culture in that part of La and La's basically like twitter. It just totally depends who you follow. You can have an extremely different experience living in different parts of La knowing different people. It's very separate all these areas so you can. You can really have a completely opposed experience of living there from someone else and so I chose Venice and I was going to take a break. I felt very stagnated. It just felt like I was caught in an eddy of finding the mixer. He's mixing everybody's staff of being in competition with you know inevitably any other female musicians that anyone could think of. And I just wasn't very inspired to make a record so I've actually gone out to L. A. Really to study film composition which I did but it was really just listening to west coast rock sixties and seventies row. Tom Petty fleetwood. Mac Neil Young Joni that got me writing some real kind of Air Punch big choruses again and the world had sort of become darker at that stage that was like two thousand fifteen things were on the turn and so if I was writing similar stuff folk inspired stuff like I did on invisible empire crescent me my fourth record. I probably would have to shelve it and waited but I was writing these really. Big Pop. Choruses about overcoming difficulty so it felt like quite helpful thing to put out into the world. I was excited to do it. Yeah we're always fascinated by right zoo. Kinda take a break from when we spoke to front healy. He said it's Kinda like select the field life. Follow for Awhile and I think that's really important. I think that's why I mean. Some people can smoke fags burgers every day until they're one hundred and five and they're fine. Everyone's different but it certainly works for me to not be constantly trying to keep up a level of output people often ask about writer's block and I actually watched them a star is born. The other day was it as far as born. No it was the wife. It was that foam the wife. Brilliant Glenn Close Foam. And there's a line in it where they're at this really pretentious party. No it wasn't even the wife. Can you ever forgive me? It was one of the Oscar nominated movies when Melissa. Mccarthy goes to this book party. And someone's asking this really pretentious right or do you ever get writer's block and he goes well. I don't subscribe to writer's block I was like. Oh my God. I say that it sound so pretentious but I actually don't. I just think it's quite arrogant to expect your creative mind to just do what you tell it to do. I don't understand really where the gift of some rain comes from. And so if people ask me that question I'm like look how many books how many films how many plays how many museums of you said that you want to go and see Redo Watch ingest and you've done use that time. Fill yourself with some stuff. Get some input or sit and do nothing in your Pyjamas. Also very useful. I find but you shall time for creativity. Oh that sounds like a bit of a paradox book. Do you put a new. Yes so it's a great excuse to go on. Adventures. I love right now albums. I love albums that one piece of vinyl because I think that four or five minute cut off point is actually a really good of point for how much music you can ingest at one time. The same for podcasts. Yeah good to know. I'll keep my answers slightly shorter but yeah I think albums are a really extraordinary form of making music. Even if you're not I mean I'm in the middle of the matic are making three albums together in a trilogy at the moment. But even if you're not doing that there's a there's a familial kind of hermetically sealed world within which that record is made and so many people will come up to me and say that their favorite track is an album track. And IT WASN'T I. It would have been the single at first but Israeli side that we're kind of moving. I'm not a lot of people I know are not but in general. There is a move away from albums. And I think that that's a shame because it kind of is taking away that deep dive on a snapshot of an artist's life at that time so tell us about that idea that you've been chewing Kim and walks. Did you have a unifying concept of the trilogy before you even started? Nope that was the thing that was really funny trilogy. You would think that you would decide upon that before you started. And I didn't and I wrote can and it was so very healing experience. In that record it was coming with kind of really Fu blast Mojo but really feeling like it was the beginning of the second half of my life so I came to. Kim is quite a different person than I had been up until that point and in many ways the fourth record invisible empire crescent meeting. I kind of see funeral music. It's cold these titles because my dad died right in the middle of those sessions and it was. He wasn't very well but it wasn't expected. And then I kind of had this wake up where I just went on Gordon with the wrong person. I'm sort of in the wrong life. And so yeah. And this is when procurement was this kind of funeral march to that happening and so then became this real phoenix from the ashes. It was this real beginning of something completely new for me and you know it's very easy to take a show. L. A. N. It's completely deserved. It's total bullshit van. You know people go. Oh my God. You're amazing you've got to do the movie. Oh they never called me ever again but there is also this amazing element to la where it's really is the vanguard of a low of new thoughts from health to filmmaking to the arts. You don't get laughed at for trying weird stuff. And there's a brilliant Frank Lloyd Wright Amion love he's an intrinsic part of La's architecture and kind of culture and but he says if you turn America on its site everything falls in California and so you just get a low of Weirdos and a low of them eccentric people and the thing I particularly like about L. A. Is Wild in many ways but actually like literally you can drive twenty minutes and be at the top of a mountain and be killed by a lion and that's the truth and there's Koyo Cheese and eagles and it really is untamed and it's also completely untamed in Mississippi as well because there's not as with guns in their cars so it's just a really extreme place so meditation had been a big part an always wanted to get into yoga just healing myself and getting really healthy and it's very easy to do there and I did and I really enjoyed it. Meditation became quite an important part of my daily life. And very good doing this job to just actually learn to control your brain because a lot of the time the monkey brain is just jotting chatting biscuit to shut up for fifteen minutes Varvara Day but it was during a meditation session on the tour for Qin's Akin was all finished and I am. I just had a really really strong vision. That can was the first part of a trilogy. It was all about the soul owned by the spirit and I knew I wanted to make a real rock and roll record next and I knew I wanted to explore electric guitar because I hadn't really delved into that. It always been acoustic and that to me is the most visceral most physical Instrument Electric Guitar.

"Another song highlight from blue. I like I like your choice of Little Green Jim because I think you know the the strength of Joni songwriting. Because you wouldn't have known it was about her daughter unless you had inside information it would have been about many many situations at the same time. Take drawings very specifically on the pain in her private life to create a song That has universal significance. And I think many of the songs on a blue have that regards to call a confessional album. I think completely misreads what it's about A great example of that is the Song River. You know it's amazing how. This song has become a Christmas standard holiday standard. You can hear it at starbucks plane. I'm not you know when you go in for a coffee starting about mid November You know it's just one of those things that's Kinda like wallpaper now for the holidays and it is an incredibly sad song. It's almost like a eulogy. Here's the Canadian girl singing about skating away on a river while she's in California a place that at the time. She does not really love and is kind of getting disgusted by the key. Line for me. I wish I had a river river so long I would teach my feet to fly. And the way her voice just sort of flies off on that last syllable is just so beautiful and heartbreaking And then lands on. I made my baby cry. This whole notion of I've just gone through this relationship that ended terribly. I miss my home of origin. I miss my childhood. You thinking about all these things coursing through the song and doing it. Beautifully with the framing device of jingle bells. I think people have a holiday song but it's played so sadly and mournfully and she starts off. Saint Kinda plaintive tone to those cords and then at the end..

"You fallen that is California. What I think is one of the key tracks from Joni Mitchell's blue. Jim would have you got greg. We have to Play Little Green. You know we were talking about this daughter that Joni Mitchell had when she was a struggling college student and folksinger had to give up for adoption. That's in the mid sixties. It wasn't until the mid nineties when that part of her life was exposed by tabloid and she subsequently years later Started a relationship with that young woman. Her Daughter Kill Lauren. Gabe I'm I you know. I think one of the sins that listeners a male and female but in particular the male rock crawling establishment lays upon. Blue is reading an as strict autobiography at all times. The reason I mentioned this This is obviously a song written about her daughter. Little Green but You know nobody knew about that. And for a good twenty five years and now that's all anybody talks about in the context of this song but if we look at the song one of those classic Weird Joni Mitchell a guitar tunings you know of her own songs in hoping g You know we look at the lyrics. It's about a longing in general. It could be. I heard as longing for the seasons to change away from the cold and into the spring it could be more specifically. I think longing for any parent In particular father all right. I'm a father of a daughter. So are you. You've got to About a daughter Both both being a an obsessive love but also some day. She's GonNa leave you and that's GonNa leave a whole you were talking about. How much longing and sadness and and emancipation runs throughout blue? It's not just in the romantic sense. It's also about in in the sense of childhood and then I think it's just a great song about hoping for something better period. You don't need to know everything that happened to Joni. It's part.

"Share some tracks that we think are important to highlight from that album. That's in a minute on sound opinions from WBZ CHICAGO NPR. Alex welcome back sound opinions. I'm Jim dear got us. My partner is Gregg Kat. And this week we're doing a classic album dissection of Joni Mitchell's blue which came out in one thousand nine hundred seventy one and is arguably Mitchell's biggest success. We're going to share some of our favorite tracks now and why we think it is a classic Album Greg. You First Jim. I want to highlight the track California which some people think of as one of the more optimistic songs on the record. It is a song about home or at least her adopted home in California. Obviously she was born in Canada. This was written as part of her European hiatus she Basically dropped out of the music industry for a number of months after her first three came out and made her a star. She just wanted to get away from everything including California. She went to Europe and live like a Hippie for a while. But you got homesick. She decided even though I'm very disillusioned with California. I'm wearing out and on this European lifestyle. I WANNA get back home. The whole idea of coming home was was a hopeful sentiment. But there's also a key question at the heart of this song. It's a plaintiff question that I think is the key to the album that line. Will you take me as I am? She's speaking to California she. Speaking to America she speaking to her fan base. She speaking to the men in her life she is talking about. You know I'm I'm this woman who was independent is doing my thing on my terms. Will you accept that? Because if you can't I don't want any party. And that that really is kind of the impetus of the blue helmets and emancipatory album in many ways with that question at the heart of it and at the same time the feeling of longing expressed so beautifully a later in the song by a little subtle touch pedal steel guitar from Sneaky Pete Klina of the flying burrito brothers. The way that pedal steel sort of wafts through the atmosphere created by. Janis voice and her Appalachian Dulcimer. I think it's a beautiful song but with many many layers and is a great example of the multilayered songwriting. That is the key to this. Very simple arrangements. With many many textures and feelings coursing through them. California from Joni Mitchell's blue range renews shawl looks bad. They won't give peace a chance. Just a dream. Some of still. Does he WANNA stay here? Too Old and cold and sit in. I'M GONNA g-get leaving kisa sentences pig pound Dan Sperry well.

"Also kind of questioning what she was leaving behind by choosing freedom over. Graham away a lot younger than me and Greg and I wasn't even there when Joni was making her music wasn't quite conscious yet. You're younger woman. How did you become exposed to Joni Mitchell? And what sort of an impact? At what point in your life did the music half? There's something really match lineal about the way people get into Joni Mitchell and and that a lotta time it is literally through their mothers and back in the days of like burning. Cd's onto your computer. I one day just was like oh I got a few a Joni. Mitchell is all about and I remember sort of doing it. I took it sneakily from my mom's collection and like put it back so she didn't know that I was like the age to kind of understand. What Joni Mitchell was was coming from emotionally. There's usually kind of the older brother figure passing down the cool records and it's not a very cool story to say. Well I like Joni Mitchell because my mom expose me to her under the surface of the cannon that we usually talk about of of men defining and passing you know what is the great music on demand. There's something kinda subterranean about the way that her music Passes FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION? I love that. I don't want you to put you in a position of speaking for all young women today. Lindsey but I am so Ask Spokesman for two minutes. Anyway I just kind of record a record that was made in the early seventies Having an impact on a generation that was born. Well after you know Joni Mitchell's. Heyday can still listen to this record. And say you know I I relate to it I mean or or does it feel like a historical document rather than a living breathing thing that speaks to a young woman today. I think the record itself feels like a living breathing thing that people have gender can relate to and and young people because this sort of feels like a farewell to the twenty s record. And that's you know always kind of a theme pop culture that's that's recurring throughout. Whatever generation is in is in the twenty something slot at the time? But I think that she. I read about this a bit that. I think Joanie is so uncompromising and kind of prickly in some ways that she's hard to reduce into like a gift or a sort of Internet icon in the way that like. I wrote something about Stevie Nicks last year too. I think she's someone who. The image of Stevie Nicks has translated a lot more seamlessly onto lake internet culture youth culture. For whatever reason but I think there's sort of the image and then that is the gateway to the actual music so I think both those artists the music. Because it's really well. I think Joanie though harder to kind of packages come out if I in that way once the music reaches you. There's something about it that feels timeless and feels raw and current no matter what time and what generation you're talking about what would you say to the Cardi B. Fan? The grimes fan the Janelle monae Fan. You know the the precocious adventurous eighteen year old music lover to say all right all right. That's great playlist. She got there now. You gotTA listen to blue. Words FAIL TO DESCRIBE LIKE YOU. Kinda just have to sneak that on. Yeah Yeah I think a lot of those artists to would say that they were influenced by her. And maybe that's a place to start with people that that are unfamiliar with her. Like there's just you know talking to peace about her connection with Prince and how prince as a teen would go to these Joni Mitchell concerts and actually wrote her fan mail like in the Prince Syntax with the number and Yeah and I think that you know just the influence she had other artists who then influence other people. It's all this web of influence. That kind of goes back to her. There are a lot of forward thinking. Female Artists Lindsey. What about you mentioned? Prince as being one of the artists who was heavily influenced by Joni. What are some other artists that you've come across in recent years that people may not be aware of that sort of mentioned? Joni Mitchell as a as an influence on the way they make music. I think in modern analog to her maybe apple I think she has about her influence. But just in the the vividness of the lyricism and the kind of uncompromising way she has conducted her public life. And Kinda just plowed through whatever.

They give your having the high. You wrote this brilliant piece fear of female genius about Joni Mitchell and we thought you'd be perfect voice to bring in to this conversation as we look at the legacy of blue first of all. That's brilliant title brilliant phrase you use throughout the piece. Tell us what you're thinking of when you say there's a fear of Joni Mitchell's female genius. Yeah I think that there are so few examples in pop culture of women who've lived and had careers and behaved like men who we call geniuses. Obviously I'm a huge fan of her music but I am fascinated by the way that she's moved throughout the culture and at each stop and each decade and era kind of show us what the resistance was to a woman living and working as freely as she did uncompromising brutal when someone you know challenges her she you know she takes no gump from nobody. Never yeah absolutely. She was so impervious to the criticism. She didn't ever let it slow her down or change the way she was doing business or or soften her in any way and I just think she's so fascinating for that reason and.

"Because she's hiding in plain sight. We'RE TALKING WITH DAVID. Yaffe author of reckless daughter a portrait of Joni Mitchell this very nineteen seventy habit of the music world in particular but my in general of of You know framing a women's talents and success and career with the men in her life. So as a biographer. You're telling the story of making blue writing blue recording blue And you can't ignore you know there's the Graham Nash. Relationship has unraveled the time in Crete living in the cave in Greece. There's a relationship with a a waiter and then James Taylor's in the wings and this romance. There is a Peace Corps activist who a cook named Kerry rats carries the song and then and then Leonard Cohen is in there too because a case of us is really about Leonard Cohen. I mean to the extent that any song is about anybody I think it was also I think just for additional context here just to add to that. Is that the way the record was perceived around that time rolling stone did a whole section about who Joni Mitchell had slept with around the time. There's record came out which to me kind of like okay. That is a typical male response. radio record by a woman to frame it in terms of who she slept with as a generation to generation of men in that. I guess what I would say. Is that her. Experiences are hers just in the same way that Bob Jones experiences are his without Leonard Cohen's experiences or his or John Lennon's or whoever else you want to think of as being in the Peer Group of Joni Mitchell Paul Simon. They write about their life. They write about their love to stay right about their sex life. They write about what they do. And it's their prerogative to do it as artists and nobody's GonNa question it and just as Question and if you're Joni Mitchell or anybody else right everybody's everybody's life is grabs when you're an artist so she's an artist but I also think that the experiences are less important than than the fact that they happened to Joni Mitchell and that Joni then has this way of articulating it. She has this way of interpreting it. She has this way of expressing her reaction to things that happened to her. And so it's not very remarkable to you know have of love. Life have breakup. Yes some of these people that she was intimate with were Amos. But that's pretty typical too if you think about it because people they often hook up with people that same field with what you're saying though if you remove all of that context of who it was specifically that she may or may not have been writing about. It's still a masterpiece. It's a masterpiece has been in fact. I think that if you take it for what it should be than it is.

"You're listening to sound opinions. I'm Greg Kat. He's Jim Dora Goddess. And that's a little bit of the song all I want by Joni Mitchell. The lead off track from her nineteen seventy one album. Blue people are still talking about this record and influenced and moved by. It regarded as one of the greatest of all time. Certainly one of Johnny's greatest works unflinching honesty poetic lyrics. Those were elements in this record that inspired a range of artists. Tori Amos. Liz Fair. Even prince was singing. Joni Mitchell's praises for years today. We're GONNA take a deep dive into blue and discuss why it's a classic album and I said some of the tracks and we're later going to share our opinions on it absolutely greg who is Joni. Mitchell born nineteen forty-three Roberta Joan Anderson in rural Alberta Canada was a creative kid. Apparently right from the start would later go on to art school but it was not an easy upbringing. She contracted polio early on. It was that time bedridden. When she learned how to play Guitar and began to sing. She got pregnant when she was a poor folk singer struggling to make her name in. Toronto in the mid sixties had a daughter that she gave up for adoption. It was only years later in the Mid Nineties when tabloid outed that she'd had this child They since reconciled but what a thing to be exposed to the public a series of toxic sometimes a chaotic certainly Romantic relationships that I got undue attention often and all through it. Joanie is writing countless iconic songs in the folk pop.
Trump rule could lead to big Medicaid cuts, governors warn
"Tell folks what has happened in terms of Medicaid in particular. I guess let's start way the way you did. What are the proposed cuts to Medicare that the trump administration the station has been talking about the proposed cuts to Medicare You know I think it started with their rollout of increased privatization of Medicare with increasing Medicare advantage. uh-huh Plans Kober last year in the lakes and Florida Trump you know reported in Vanity Fair that he said it would be fun. Second Term Project to cut Medicare and then in a couple of weeks ago now in Davos Switzerland he was talking. NCNB CNBC and he said Yesterday the fact that would be on the table cutting cutting Medicare in those social security and he said that would be the easiest thing to do very strange choice of words. So that's kind of the Medicare and that's what I started with. That's why I was in Des Moines that day with the committee to protect Medicare talking about these possible Medicare cuts with you know doctors from Iowa that join me for a press conference One Press When one member of the press showed up at that press conference now you know a little bit more of the presses is listening to the line that we're calling out at my committee about these proposed cuts it's And then you know because of the news of the day. Last Thursday was Davis encounter occurred in that was the day that Seema Verma the cms administrator for trump mm rolled out these Block grant Waiver proposal. That you know everyone I can see. That is talking about this. In an honest this way tells us this will cut folks from Medicaid. Okay and so tell us. CMS The centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services when they roll out this proposal are they actually just basically introducing. They're they're basically announcing that you can you as a state Can apply for a waiver. Is that right right. Apply for a waiver. Currently Medicaid is funded by the federal government on a kind of a per person per need basis. So you know. For instance when there's a recession and more people lose jobs and more people qualify for Medicaid. The federal share of spending on healthcare for those folks will go up because of course they need that you know people with diabetes if they have a job or they lose their jobs to no fault of their own still. Have they still need three hundred dollars a month insulin slim so with block grant States could say listen Why don't you just give us a lump sum of money? And then let us in the where he used was innovate let us innovate. Ah figure out how to cover anyone cover everyone but you know if the needs go up in our state. We still get that that pot of money that you're giving us it doesn't change and yet our needs go up so more people lose out the other thing they can do is choose to cut certain services they can you know cut certain drugs that are that are. Currently they covered up a prescription drug benefit under Medicaid. So I mean I mean it is just cut. There's no way around it. And there's no way that pence didn't understand that Seema. Burma used to be his Medicaid Administrator in the state of Indiana when he was governor there so this has been a conservative dream for for ages decades thirty years. They've been trying Graham. They've been trying to block grant and and so. There's there's like you say there's multiple problems that come with the block. Granting one is that it does not act as that economic stabiliser in other words doesn't doesn't Basically expand as the the need gets greater in crises. It also does not a increase along with the cost of medicine and And like you say the states can get sort of clever because the federal government has basically said I mean this is the difference between just sort of you know me me giving ten bucks to my kid and saying you know do whatever you want with it as opposed to making sure that she spends it on you know not on on junk food or whatever it is and and she can then go out and basically spend five bucks on the. I want to keep this metaphor too much but the idea is that they can use this money in other ways that I really don't have anything to do with providing health insurance for people right and my governor is Governor Gretchen. Whitmer who gave you know. I thought an amazing response to the state of the Union last night and I was there and we talked beforehand. And she's she helped. Uh sure in expanded Medicaid under the affordable care act when she was the minority leader of the State Senate here in Michigan and got a Republican governor to expand Medicaid. And we've had you know. Nearly three three quarters of million folks in Michigan Benefit from that Their study I think Carter. Kaiser family reported recently specifically Michigan showing the economic economic benefits of expanded Medicaid. The fear was that the federal government was going to give them a hundred percent in the first year and then scaled back to I think ninety percent of eventually by next year and the reality is even though the federal share has scaled back because people are healthier because they can afford treating their chronic illnesses. They can work more they. The actual tax base has increased. I think thirty thousand jobs in Michigan created directly resulted expanded Medicaid. So I you know this is. It just doesn't make sense to me that they try and and I think that's why he dodged the question and tried to revert back to things he did. And and then eventually just said agree to disagree because He knows what it is they. They held him what it is and they know if they say what it is. People won't like it you know. It's an election year. They're trying to get reelected so they just say whatever they want they lie will and state of the Union almost solely healthcare allies again about every other aspect of healthcare. And you know I think they just say what they want they get away with it. He just wasn't expecting to meet up with a guy in tyner who you know. I mean again. I don't know this issue like a policy. Wonk I mean I just I have a biology degree in a medical degree and I work clinically as a doc but I read you know and I and I try to learn as much as I can and so you know with my limited understanding of these policies he just. He wasn't ready for that one briefed them known gave them talking points. And I think that's. That's that's what we saw unfold. Yeah he did look like a deer in the headlights and we did try to dance around it quite a bit. You were pretty easy. Road brought in on them pretty quickly I think as he tried to sort of pretend like he didn't understand what you said the first thing. It just didn't that first exchange where you said. You're going to get cuts and Medicaid. 'cause I don't think we're GONNA do cuts in Medicare and so we'll give us. I mean So you know firsthand. The implications of this expanded Medicaid and and and I WANNA get into that as just your experiences as as an emergency doctor but I also get the sense. You're on this You're you're you're you're executive director of this committee you're in Iowa so you're aware at at least some of the you know the broader politics involved in this. Where would you anticipate what states or at least you know if not specific ones than the profile of the states eight? That are going to be applying for this waiver. I mean presumably the thirteen states. Now that did not expand Medicaid under the affordable. Care Act. I would imagine would be a prime targets or prime applicants to get this waiver. Because they're going to continue you. Say we're going to expand medicaid. They certainly are interested in dismantling it as much as they can right. I think that and I think you know anywhere that there is a Republican And I guess I have to. I don't know the nuances of the directive if it's if it's an executive decision at the state level or if it requires you know something passing through their houses so we have enough house majority Republican state legislatures plus governorships. In this country that I I mean I think that would be the profile. You know certainly because those will be the places where you know folks are more likely to be in charge that share vice president pence views on you know on Medicaid in general in a and and whether or not we should be helping out poor people when it comes to healthcare That that is that's the fear now. And why should we in Michigan you you know. Why should we in Michigan? Have a different set of. I mean the whole healthcare system. So Patchwork in Hodgepodge if you WANNA call it a system a series of systems. But it's so patrick work anyways I mean I guess why should this be any different. Let's let certain states do one thing and others do the other. And if you just happen to be born in Michigan versus Alabama. Well you know good on you right Well there's so much in our society today that's determined that way it's all just a coin toss and met. I guess maybe a bunch of coins get tossed in the air. What now? There's a vote tomorrow in the house. I Don I imagine you're familiar with it. And what the what the vote is is it's under the The CRA which has been used in the past to see the Congressional Review Act. It's been used in the past undo executive the actions that have been done within a certain timeframe and the Republicans did this with a bunch of executive actions by Obama and then once they do that once they pass that to reinstitute any type of rule like that Congress has to has to authorize it with a two thirds vote right so this is like this is a this is a real this is a sledgehammer as it were and they're going to. They're going to vote on this in the house and they will probably pass yes it which would not allow the president to block grant but then it goes to the Senate and the Republicans are sure to shoot it down. How do you think this plays as has a An issue in the fall when you have a half dozen or so Republican senators running in sort of purple states on their refuse their essential like voting to allow for cuts and Medicaid right. Yeah and I and I kind of anxious to see what folks looks like Like Collins I mean she seems the only one in the purple state that I think might make along with this I think you know tell us and and MC sally the and who is a gardener I think is already toast You know maybe Joni Ernst I don't know Yeah I mean I think at least I mean the thing is having having gone record. I mean that's That's I think that's all that's what we're trying to do as a committee. I mean what we're what we're rolling out over. The next. Several months is is an accountability campaign.

A Saner Mindset For Weight Loss
"Okay. So there's a typical pattern to weight loss. And if you've ever gone on a diet you've you've probably experienced it. Basically people lose weight for the first four to six months and then they hit a plateau and then slowly they start to regain some or all of the weight they lost and sometimes they end up heavier than they started. There are a lot of biological reasons. Why weight loss's hard and we talked about those in episode two of the skied but there are some things we can control to an extent and those are the strategies in mindset? We use when approaching weight loss. One problem is that a lot of weight loss strategy start like minded with fat cabbage soup diet or the Cayenne pepper diet. Yeah remember that Queen Bay or some other crazy fed diet like I wasn't planning to eat cabbage soup sue forever you know just until the weight came off but after about a month pizzas started to look real real good to me like whole pie. Good it's hard to be restrictive for a very long time. That's Gary Bennet. He's a psychology professor and obesity researcher at Duke University. And he told me there's research showing that people apple kind of rebound after being on a really strict diet even if that diets more bounce than what I did and naturally people start to move back into moderation and then sometimes that let's see goes into a little bit more consumption and then you know things get a little bit off track so what Gary and Jonni both tell their patients and this is take away number one things that are are not done for good in the name of weight management lead to temporary results. And that's not generally what people are looking for in other words keeping weight off long term. I'm only happens if you liked the lifestyle. Gets you to that weight so much so that you actually stick to it short term crash diets. They're really not sustainable. Unless you like the life you're living while you're losing your weight you're probably not going to keep living that way and as a consequence that weight that you lost we'll come back and it was that philosophical shift that led me to the practice. I suppose that I I run today. Which is focused not on particular body weight goals? It's it's not on the body mass index. It's not on particular diet but rather it's trying to work with patients as individuals to figure out the healthiest life. They honestly enjoy. So if you're looking to lose weight and you go to Yonis practice. The first thing he would tell you is to stop thinking about weight itself like that number on the scale. Just just don't worry about it. We don't aim people at any numbers whatsoever in our office as far as Pounds on a scale or body mass indices or body fat percentages or clothing sizes sizes. I think all of the numbers are risky risky because our bodies and our genes are all built differently plus our job demands are different. Our environments are different are caregiving responsibilities. Wants abilities are different and all of that can affect our weight loss efforts so aiming for a specific number can set a lot of up to fail that's why Yoni says takeaway number to forget goalwards instead. Focus on behavior goals the analogy. I'll use regularly in. My Office is one of school. So if you've got a kid in school you know that that Kid's best grade is going to be whatever grade. They get when they go to class do their homework and study their best but by no means does everybody trying their best in school. Get an a plus. That's not how it works. And so the goal setting needs to be around the going to class doing your homework and studying and also needs to be realistic. Yanni loves a good analogy analogy. And you're going to hear from him in this episode but in this case when he says doing your homework he means adopting healthy behaviors for example. He really recommends trying to cook at home or often as for Gary he gives his patients a simple list of changes they can choose from for instance. Stop sugary beverage. Consumption huge for most people reduce alcohol intake. No more than one drink per night ECHINACEA that's harder for me. Maybe you you know. Stop eating chips cookies and candy right this those three no fast food. Do you do like four or five of those and your. You'll get pretty close to that five hundred calorie deficit each day a calorie deficit. That just means you're taking in fewer calories and you burn and that's how you lose weight but the weight-loss isn't the focus here the idea. Is that making. These changes can make you healthier regardless of how much weight lose are even if you don't lose any weight at all in other words their goals worth pursuing in of themselves and they're less likely to make you obsessive of course changing. Our behavior is easier said than done and this gets us to take away number three. Don't try to overhaul your behavior all at once instead. Start Small and let those changes snowball when it comes to weight management specifically people are so keen to suddenly have a black belt that they forget to get a black belt. you start with a white belt and fall down a whole bunch. Dan Slowly slowly over time with a lot of repetition. You build a skill set and I think healthy living is the same and when people try to suddenly have a black belt without taking that time to build up to it you know. They usually struggle and stop for a lot of people. Union says a good place to start as to just figure figure out what you're eating. I think one of the first things a person can do just like they would be doing if they were unhappy with their bank balance at the end of every month trying to understand what their spending ending patterns look like would be a great first step and I think the same is true about eating patterns eating habits now I am a fan of using food. Diaries I realize is that it's not for everybody but doing it for a few weeks would be a very eye opening thing for a lot of people where people will be keeping track of what they're eating when they're eating how much they're eating now. Joni said food. Diaries are not for everyone. If you have a history of eating disorders or tend to become obsessive about counting calories stay stay away from them because the trigger you but if he can look at the data dispassionately without self judgment food tracking can help you get to know yourself and your habits. That's when you can start taking stock of what you may or may not be able to change for instance. Maybe there's a food you can cut back on a couple of years ago. I started tracking and and I quickly realized that I was poring about four hundred calories worth of creamer into my coffee every morning. That was really eye opening so I cut back and eventually we realized just a spoonful was enough but a lot of people do find tracking their food too tedious. Even carry does. That's why he tells his patients to track their goals calls instead. I once had a patient who just tracked every day. She got a day planner and just put a smiley face or a sad face on the day planner each day and if she thought she was doing doing pretty well hitting our goals at day she would have happy face if she wasn't she wrote a sad face and she's she did wonderfully and felt really good about our progress. And you know she would tell you I just look at the day. Planner Sir can figure out all the trends and there's another reason to focus on meeting smaller goals. They're actually achievable. So it sets you up to to be able to celebrate small victories. Gary Remembers one day when he walked into one of the health centers. You works at and one of his patients. Waived him over. This woman comes over and doc to DOC DOC DOC DOC and she was shaking this thing at me and I didn't know what was happening and I realized that she was shaking a pedometer. My faith and she was look at my steps. Look at my steps. I hit thirteen thousand thirteen thousand and then she immediately started vogue ing I mean. She dislikes all the model poses. And the whole thing and she's like look you how I lost some weight but I've still kept a Dachsie and I've got my Michelle Obama arms and just doing the whole thing and and so we sat and talked for they'll and she just followed these really simple goals one of the simple goals Gary likes to offer. His patients is brisk activity. This patient certainly embrace stat and accomplishing it. Capture motivated to keep going over time. You can work your way up to black belt level lifestyle changes if you want and what those are GonNa look different for different people. It could be cooking most of the food. You eat yourself or running a marathon or playing kickball with your kid after school. That's actually what my husband does Yoni says the key is to stick with the types of changes. You most enjoy

Apple plays it safe with iPhone 11 as it pushes new services like Apple TV Plus
"Good morning and welcome to CNN's daily charges Wednesday September eleventh. I'm an Fox Ruben. The stories okay so after months of rumors leaks and speculation apple revealed its new iphone eleven Tuesday Tuesday it starts at seven hundred dollars that has an upgraded camera and processor but beyond those headlines. There's really not much else to encourage customers to storm apple stores to buy hi it so joan. This event wasn't expected to offer much as far as new iphone invasions. Do you think those expectations were pretty accurate. Yeah Yeah Yeah I would agree on cast over. One of the things that is most innovative is a kind of artificial but it's like the price is the fact that it's a little bit cheaper than like what you would expect considering that you have been tapping those prices so high idea that like the mass availability availibility phone the ones being pegged as being the one that's for the general consumer isn't like a bazillion dollars. There are those pro phones but they're kind of being pitched as being really for or like perfect pro even say pro as opposed to what they were saying last year which were it was the iphone ten ass and the tennis. Max obviously the Max gives gives you some sort of indication that this is for more pro users but they took both of those in basically made them pro phones. I would assume that the expectation that everybody was buying the ten art the Ten our last year was priced at seven hundred fifty dollars this year the iphone eleven price seven hundred when was the last time apple actually lowered prices. They worry worry price. That's a great question by like fifty dollars. This time for their entry level saw the folly in what they were doing. I mean everybody all hands. That makers are having difficulty colty getting people to buy these phones. When there's not a lot of new things you can do with other than stick more powerful processor slam better cameras and give it a little bit better battery life. That's really all anyone can do and that's all that apple's doing here but at least they're not doing it and being also. We'll take another extra one hundred dollars this time around okay. Don't you think they were in doing that. In previous years. It didn't work how it's true. Zero aren't buying the IPHONE IPHONE iphone business has been declining they still make billions upon billions of dollars and the envy of the entire smartphone industry but at the same time it does appear to me if you read through the tea leaves here the writing on the wall whereas Apple realized they needed to restrain their prices with the pro and the pro Max this year the prices stayed the same. They stabilized from last year as well so yeah okay beyond the price. Let's talk about the features but you're right. You're right absolutely the price was really the most interesting part so night. Mode this kind kind of catch up to the Google Pixel. What did you think of that. They were really emphasizing magical it is I mean these things they all good except for the slopes are about to get this loan fees. What did you think of that. I find I like Sophie's Moreland talking poop Emoji from previous years so I could. I could dig a slow Fi. Wait it does doesn't it doesn't talk talk then come on. Give them some credit but no it totally does so what some of the new collars. I hate mentioning new callers honestly because like it's not an invasion but it's something that is appealing people like that. It was something that people really liked about that series when they had that out okay and the other element is with the pro phones longer battery life yeah once you get those you get the three cameras rather than to you so that you have not only the wide angle telephoto another reason why people well that are serious about shooting video and shooting photos would be maybe more interested in up selling themselves to that yeah so. Scott Stein are heroic phone. Reviewer viewer was at Apple's headquarters for this event. Let's check out some of his first impressions for the iphone Eleven. So what you're looking at here is the battery life gains the case extra durability claims for water and for glass string and it's the Camera Camera Camera Camera. How good is the camera on by the way that front facing camera can do slow Mo Selby's now and has a wider area to look at what we'll see night. Mode was also looks. Fantastic is not unique to in fact. It's also on the iphone eleven and that's the question is do you. Maybe want to get the IPHONE. Eleven starts at six hundred ninety nine include the same eight thirteen by chip. It's an aluminum design. Zayn still sports really good better life. It seems and it only has widened ultra white camera not the telephone. We're not getting okay okay so I also want to jump to apple TV plus so while the iphone eleven was kind of a snooze this time around we were kind of expecting that to happen apple TV plus the announcement there was that it was going to be coming out in November verse three five dollars a month and also if you buy new hardware from apple you get the first year free so joan. Is this a compelling offer when you compare it to calm the competitive said well. I mean there's nothing more compelling repelling than free and that's about how much apple should be charging for the service in the sense that they're they're. GonNa have nine things to watch when launches like okay to be fair to Apple. These do seem like high. SPEC shows like sure. I don't know how cool see is going to be but at the same time nobody does know apple's never made program before they've hired like smart people. They've cast really big stars and they're throwing a lot of money at it. which is you know some some of the ingredients that generally can help you get a really good show but they're not going to have a lot of them? They aren't going to be releasing them all at once. So if if you do want to watch the whole thing you're going to have to buy an apple product to get that free subscription pay the five dollars subscription or wait until they all come out and then have the seven day free trial that they're actually going to have for everybody right so I think it's pretty safe to say that there's been a lot of skepticism in the marketplace that Apple TV TV pluses really gonNa make significant waves right especially when there are a lot of competitors that are coming out to go up against prime video net flicks legs so i. I don't want to say the dead in the water or anything like that. Oh no I mean people are going to watch it for sure especially if they're giving it away for free the as a little bonus perk for all these new iphones people are buying an addition to you know during the holiday season when people buy Apple TV's for friends and family in themselves. There's going to be people will just get it for free and so of course they're. GonNa Watch it. I don't think it's going to be that any no. Maybe they'll have big hits. It's just difficult to see why people that aren't prompted by getting it for free and aren't super fans of one of those particular actors like Reese Witherspoon or Jennifer Aniston or Jason Momoa. It's hard to see how there's GonNa. That'd be a mass audience unless they really like find lightning in a bottle and get something that's ridiculously popular now. Buzzy never never count apple out. That's always an important thing to remember but at the same time yeah they do have quite a quite a tough road going ahead with this one for the daily jumped on Fox Ruben. I'm Joni is all. Thanks everybody for joining us.
Everything to know about the Galaxy Note 10 (The Daily Charge, 8/8/2019)
"Today on the daily charge you knew it was coming an obligation to the masses today. We're talking all about the galaxy note. Good morning and cassisi nets daily charge. It's thursday august eighth. I'm joanie salesman and i'm just all court sharia tip. Let's take a look at today's stories last night. Samsung unveiled not one but two big new phones the galaxy note ten and the note ten plus range from nine hundred in forty nine dollars to one thousand three hundred ninety nine dollars. We've got fancy prison. Medic backings gesture controls in the silence four year cameras and an amped a partnership with microsoft jessica shara you right there for all these announcements. What's the single biggest takeaway for me. I think the biggest thing is instead of just just one bigger phone. They actually came out with a phone with two models. This year and one of them is smaller and cheaper than last year's note nine which is a big change. Nobody's really going long smaller anymore. They're just going bigger and bigger yeah. Absolutely i agree. That is the most significant difference for samsung. What you're doing is you're taking what was the pinnacle of its line. You're breaking it into two parts and there are actually you could say that they're sort of devaluing that note for the longest time it stood as the best of the best that that samsung can offer in the year the best specs the best everything and now there's this lighter version <hes> presumably for people who have always wanted to know but didn't want to i have the large screen or maybe didn't pay that sky high price so samsung's creating options there are also creating different price points and it's just a really interesting shift in that strategy edgy one thing you won't be seeing on the notes your beloved headphone jack not only a headphone jack missing from the new notes but the micro s._d. Is gone for the smaller phones to jessica. Why is samsung taking away all our things yeah. I mean that's really controversy all for the longest time. Samsung has been the hold out the major holdout when these headphone jacks acts are being removed. Remember apple said that courage to do this. There is a shift definitely. You're all courageous. Yes definitely there's a shift in in what we're using tillerson to phone so samsung has said that fewer people are using the headphone jack instead. You'll be using that u._c. You s._b._c. port. If you want wired wired headphone <hes> or you might make the jump and go into <hes> the wireless bluetooth headsets and samsung will be happy to sell you that as well so they said that i think it was like seventy percent of set in the seventy percentage of galaxy s. note users. Don't even use the headphone jack anyway. Most people are using bluetooth yeah but this is annoying for people who have invested in wired headphones pray. They prefer for various reasons. Maybe they don't want to charge it up. Maybe they want something. That will just work with any device. Maybe they spent a lot of money on something really good and they love it but if you do that now you'll have to use a dangle. There is a pair of headphones that come in the box but there's no dangle. If you want a samsung dangle you have to pay ten dollars for it but last night i did go round and i tested four different dangles right with the no ten plus list and they all worked on the same video so i don't think that you're gonna see a lot of problems there. You don't have to bite exclusively from samsung and lastly five g. Super fast networks are it's still out of reach for almost everybody but samsung has two phones now ready for five g. now with the galaxy note ten plus five jeep shara. What do consumers need to know about this phone. Yeah i mean basically it's a mess in terms of in terms of how five going to work so what we saw with the galaxy s. ten five g. was it would only tap into the super super fast millimeter wave networks so these are the ones that doesn't travel very far. If there's a tree in the way the signal wig blocked you'd be trees exactly <hes> but it's what we're seeing rolled out in cities like chicago and a new york and there's another kind of flavor of six six five gee that's going to be ruled out more broadly and it can go farther distances. It doesn't have a lot of the problems more stable but it's just not as fast so that's what a._t. Eighteen t and t mobile their broader networks are going to be so like next year. They say they're going to be nationwide with five g. because when they can they turn this on you can basically five asia anywhere. They've just been waiting for a phone to work with it. They issue is there wasn't a modem that worked with it yeah so the rises going to get this phone. I the note ten plus. I five g. They're gonna use an older modem and it'll still tap into the super fast network that they have a._t. And t. and t. mobile are using version with the new modem and it it can tap into the faster networks but for some reason it's not going to so for a._t. And t. and t. mobile if you buy this device you're going to be able to have much broader coverage but you're not going to get the super fast speeds and we don't really know why that is at this point because the modem can support it so who knows but basically it's basically it's super confusing right that sounds about as clear as five jazz generally. I mean next year probably with like the galaxy s. eleven eleven year. You're gonna have a phone that can support all of the variations of five g. So if you really want gee if you want a phone that can last you for several years. I just wait for the daily charge on joni salesman. I'm jessica awkward name charts again. Thanks for listening.

"There's record came out which to me kind of like okay that is a typical male response a record by a woman to frame it in terms of who she slept with as generation yeah generation of men in that i guess what i would say is that her experiences are hers just in the same way that bob jones experiences are his leonard cones experiences are his or john lennon's or whoever else you wanna think of as being in the peer group of joni mitchell paul simon they write about their life they write about their loves they write about their sex life they write about what they do and it's their prerogative to do it as artists and nobody's gonna question it and just as question if you're joining mitchell or anybody else right everybody's everybody's life is up for grabs when you're an artist so she's an artist but i also think that the experiences are less important than than the fact that they happen to join mitchell and that joni mitchell then has this way of articulating it she has this way of interpreting it she has this way of expressing hurry action to things that happened to her and so it's not very marketable to you know have a love life pep breakup yes some of these people that she was intimate with were amos but that's pretty typical too if you think about it because people they often hook up with people that same field with what you're saying though if you remove all of that context of who it was specifically that she may or may not have been writing about it's still a masterpiece it's a masterpiece been in fact i think that if you take it for what it should be than it is about intimacy i mean that's part of the story that relationships i think it's fischel to remove it from its intimate content because that's the point.
